Disaster in a New York tunnel as explosions collapse both ends of it. One hero tries to help the people inside find their way to safety.

George Tyrell: Get them back to daylight.
Chief Dennis Wilson: [Bloom emerges from air shaft] Whaddya got?
Bloom: Sorry, Chief. Blocked about twenty feet in.
Bloom: Structure's so shaky, I wouldn't even risk a firecracker.
Chief Dennis Wilson: What about hydraulics? We brace up as we go...
Bloom: Can't be done!
Chief Dennis Wilson: You listen to me. The person who says it can't be done is always interrupted by the one who just did it!
[Climbs into air shaft; air shaft immediately collapses, killing Wilson]
Kit Latura: [hearing the tunnel collapsing on itself] Keep trying you piece of shit. Keep trying. You've killed everybody else. You know what, you haven't killed me.
[readies an explosive]
Kit Latura: I have found your heart, and I'm gonna blow it right out of you
[thrusts the explosive right into the wall of mud]
Ashley Crighton: [as seeing a huge gush of water pouring into the damaged tunnel] Excuse me Mr. Latura. But, are we gonna drown?
Kit Latura: What's your name?
Ashley Crighton: Ashley.
Kit Latura: Okay, Ashley. I may find a way to stop this leak. So, it will keep us from drowning, that's the good news.
Sarah Crighton: Okay, what's the bad news?
Kit Latura: This water is 38 degrees. So, the only thing we have to worry about is Hypothermia.
LaTonya: Hypo-what?
Sarah Crighton: Hypothermia. It's when your body loses heat and shuts down. When your body is getting tired, really, you're getting dead. Does that sound fair enough?
Kit Latura: I hope you make it, Roy.
Roy Nord: I always make it.
Roy Nord: It's exhausting being me.
Grace Calloway: There are 4 of those. I will shut them down for 2 and a half minutes.
Kit Latura: Each?
Grace Calloway: Total. They revved all the way up to compensate for the damaged exhaust shaft. When we shut them down, it will severely cut their oxygen. When the level gets too low, the computer automatically kicks the fans back on. There's no override, and there's no second shut-down. That's a safety feature.
Madelyne Thompson: [singing] Start spreading the news/I'm leaving tonight/I've had it up to here with all your shit/New York, New York.
Kit Latura: Okay we're high and dry and out of danger. Now, what we do'nt need is more suprises. Right?
Steven Crighton: Okay, Were high and dry. Now what?
Kit Latura: Now, I may have a way where I can take down a part of that tube, that will seal us off from the fire and plug up that leak.
Steven Crighton: How do you plan on doing that?
Kit Latura: I gonna have to use an explosive.
[the people sigh in disbelief]
Kit Latura: No. wait. wait a second. Let me explain.
Steven Crighton: An explosive? that's your idea down here? No wonder you got people killed.
Kit Latura: Hey. If anybody's got a better idea, now is the time to say it.
Steven Crighton: You really do not know how much damage this tunnel has sustained. So, how do you know that you can contain it to one section?
Kit Latura: You know what, I don't know. I don't know anything. But, the one thing I know is that we're not going to make it another hour unless I shut this thing down.
George Tyrell: [seeing Roy taking out his bungee equipment] What are you crazy? I have checked all over this place there's no way out.
Roy Nord: Hey. I was born 6 months premature. My own mother could'nt keep me in.
George Tyrell: [on a TV monitor holding up a bracelet] I found this under my bed.
Grace Calloway: Could you be a little less discreet?
Grace Calloway: Norman, what's the combined force of all the fans?
Norman Bassett: About 160 miles an hour.
Madelyne Thompson: Don't be scared. They're just shit with feet.
