Bob and the team are evacuating the U.S. embassy while the ambassador is not so happy about the team not arriving sooner than they did, which brings a curt reply from Bob, "Sir. Would you have rather waited longer?" The ambassador's wife is able to persuade him to leave the embassy.

Hector rushes in alerting Bob that the evac bus has arrived. Meanwhile, Mack is in charge of medical and is helping natives that are sheltered at the embassy. One girl comments that they are not going to be saved because they are not Americans, Mac can only frown and say that they have a list of people to evacuate. Edward, the ambassador, continues to bicker with Bob about leaving. His wife tells Edward that she is leaving with these men (the Unit members). Hector notes that their package is here while Edward finally agrees to go with the men.

One American, a boy that is probably around 16 is distressed that they are leaving the locals and only taking Americans. Mack attempts to reassure him telling him that once they leave the locals will be safe. It is revealed that the boy has a girlfriend that is presumbably native to the region, Mac replies with a "We all have a girlfriend." His father who was instructing the locals on proper safety procedure begins to leave the building and refers to the boy as his son telling him to listen to Mack.
