Scared that the balls could make the reactor go off, Toby hangs outside acting like a human pin yada to protect the disconnect box.

Suddenly the truck is being shot at as he gang in the back tries to keep the reactor steady. Remotely Sly controls the traffic lights and the gates so that they can get away. A GPS kill switch on the truck brings them to an abrupt stop.

They need to drain the reactor because they can’t get it to safety. Cabe commands that a churro vendor give them his cart so that they can siphon the chemicals from the reactor into the oil used by the cart.

Right down the street there’s a parade going on when they see a massive superman float Cabe has quick thinking once again they use the float to lift the reactor. It works! Together they all seat down for Thanksgiving dinner, Paige’s mother included who finally meets Ralph.
