After swimming, Alistair finds a letter from his girlfriend saying she’s going away. He rushes off and catches a train as it pulls out. On train, Fish interacts with a boy and a young woman who catches his bag as it falls from the rack. Sleeping passengers wake and join in. Most of the passengers are now exhausted and prepare to sleep again. Fish goes to buy everyone coffee but only the boy and the woman stay awake. She catches the falling bag again; Fish catches her as the train jerks. A sleeping woman falls out of a luggage rack; Fish tries to catch her, but fails and is chased by angry passengers. The train arrives and Fish sees his girlfriend waiting on the platform. Credits.
