Maureen finds a solution to the fuel issue, but putting her plan into action proves trickier than expected. Dr. Smith realizes her cover is blown.
Did You Know?
Will offers to help an obviously at-ends Maureen by looking at her printouts of the calculated target weight that they have enough fuel for, and a spreadsheet of items and their weights that they know that they can remove (which would easily have a total on it), and states the obvious by saying "It's still too heavy", him being the expert on Which Number Is Higher.

In their efforts to reach the Resolute, which is still orbiting the planet, Maureen, the space engineer, says that they have to "reach escape velocity" and "hit escape velocity", when in both cases it's orbital velocity that they need to hit, once above the atmosphere. None of the space pilots mention the error either. Escape velocity is higher, an indicates the energy required to completely get out of a gravity well an into free space. See more
You sure you can get us back without a map?
Hey, come on. Obviously, I memorized and studied the topography before we left.
If I didn't know better, I would think you were trying to impress me.
Maybe I am.
