[Jackson drives to the top of Mt. Big Horn, where Charlie is broadcasting from the radio transmitter strapped to his back]
Jackson Curtis: Charlie!
Charlie Frost: Jackson...
Jackson Curtis: Yeah, yeah.
Charlie Frost: What are you doing here? I thought you were toast.
Jackson Curtis: No no no. Where are the spaceships?
Charlie Frost: There's no way you can make it there.
Jackson Curtis: We have a plane. You could come with us, but we gotta leave right now.
[a giant flock of birds fly overhead]
Charlie Frost: Fly, birdies... Fly!
[he turns and sees Jackson's daughter]
Charlie Frost: Is this your kid?
Jackson Curtis: Where's the godamn map?!
Charlie Frost: We're going live.
Jackson Curtis: I don't care! Where is it?
[he grabs Charlie by the collar]
Jackson Curtis: Charlie. Focus. Where's the map?
Charlie Frost: Uhhh...
Jackson Curtis: Now. Where?
Charlie Frost: It's in the camper.
Jackson Curtis: Where in the camper?
Charlie Frost: In the map section...
Jackson Curtis: Maps?
Charlie Frost: On the conspiracy shelf... Dewey Decimal System, between Roswell... and Marilyn Monroe?
[the ground behind them starts to swell and spew lava]
Charlie Frost: It's starting.
Jackson Curtis: You sure you don't wanna come with, man?
Charlie Frost: It's so beautiful. I'm gonna stay.
Jackson Curtis: Good luck.
[Jackson runs off to Charlie's camper with his daughter, while Charlie continues to broadcast his radio program]
Charlie Frost: This marks the last day of the United States of America. And, by tomorrow, all of mankind. And we will be visible from the Milky Way... as a tiny little puff of smoke.
[the volcano continues to erupt]
Charlie Frost: I'm watching the earth crumble before my eyes. The giant ash cloud created by this super-volcano will first envelop Vegas...and then St. Louis...and then Chicago...and then, at long last...Washington, D.C. will have its lights go out!
Lilly Curtis: [inside Charlie's camper] That guy's crazy. Right, daddy?
Jackson Curtis: No, don't think so.
[Gordon steps out of the airplane]
Gordon Silberman: This is ridiculous. It's been over half an hour. I tell you, the guy's a nut job.
Kate Curtis: Stop it, Gordon. Noah, hand me the phone again.
[the mountain suddenly explodes into a giant mushroom cloud in front of them]
Charlie Frost: Oh ...
[Jackson drives the camper towards the airplane as the ground collapses behind them]
Lilly Curtis: Daddy, what was that?
Jackson Curtis: [looks at the destruction in the rear view mirror] Nothing. Nothing.
Charlie Frost: [watches the destruction in front of him] I have goose bumps, people.
[the force of the explosion knocks Charlie backwards]
Charlie Frost: I wish you could see what I'm seeing, people! I wish you could be here with me! Oh, baby... [laugh] Bring it on! Always remember, folks...you heard it first from Charlie!
[the explosion finally reaches him, incinerating his body instantly]
