edda: A free floating asteroid becomes ensnared in earth's gravitational pull. Edda: Below, the epoch of the dinosaurs, now at it's zenith... edda: It's about to end. Edda: Hurtling toward earth, the titanic asteroid tears a fiery gash into the night skies... Edda: while below, giant, lumbering reptiles witness the blazing end of the cretaceous era in dumb confusion. Amos: Do you always have to do cannonballs when we go to the pool?...you knocked off my glasses. Edda: The death dealing asteroid gives the doomed dinosaur a lingering kiss. Amos: especially because she realized she's standing on his glasses.
