Student log, May 15, still no sign of civilisation.
We're lost in the Sahara
after a trip to the Ellwood Petting Zoo went wrong.
-The only food we have left is...
-"Jellied pepper popcorn.
"Now extra spicy!"
At least we still have a full bottle of water.
Francine! What are you doing?!
I can't tell if this is dirt on my wrist or a freckle.
But we need that water for drinking!
Correction. Less than a full bottle... Muffy, are you crazy?!
Shoo! Bad bird! I'm trying to scare it off.
-But you're wasting our water!
Water supply's dwindling fast.
A water balloon?!
Don't tell anyone. You'll spoil it.
Guys, we'll never survive if we waste all our water.
Our lovely, cool, quenching, refreshing...
# Take the midnight train and baby
# I'll be waiting at the station for you! #
I sound good! I can't believe I've been taking baths all these years!
-# You and me... #
You were in the shower for half an hour!
-Sorry, Katherine. Is there a law against washing?
-Look at this!
"Boy finds chip shaped like donkey."
Not that! This!
"Drought hits Ellwood City." So?
-Reservoir levels are at a 40-year low.
-So there's a drought!
-It's not like one girl taking a shower makes a difference!
Arthur! What do you think you are doing?!
-It's called water conversation.
You mean "conservation".
What it's really called is annoying your brother.
Miss Morgan says if you use all the water, there'll be none left for my generation.
We're the same generation! I'm not using up all the water!
I wasn't using up that much water!
-I like running water when I brush my teeth. It's calming.
Like how a waterfall is calming.
You need calming when you brush your teeth?! That's a little weird.
At least I'm not wasting water screeching in the shower!
It's called singing, and I bet your family uses twice the water we do.
Oh, yeah?! Wanna bet? Whoever uses more water in a week...
-..has to carry the winner's book bag for the whole month.
-What are you up to, Francine?
-Nothing, Mr Sanders!
You're always up to something. Filling my suggestion box with suggestions.
We didn't have a suggestion box till you suggested it.
My mum said our water meter is here.
They were useful when everyone used to pay for their own water.
Now it's easier if I raise the rent and pay the water myself.
So I can use as much water as I want and it doesn't cost any extra?
How much water ARE you using?
Uh...hardly any at all. I'm checking the meter all week to prove it.
You know what? I think I'll be checking it too.
I'll just be a second.
Putting a plastic bottle in the toilet saves 3 litres each flush.
You're going to put your hand in the toilet? Gross!
It means I won't have to shorten my showers.
The point isn't to save a little in one place to waste a lot elsewhere.
Let go of the lid!
We're glad you're trying to conserve.
-Every little bit makes a difference.
-So, shorter showers for you!
I tried telling her.
And you can stop taking those nightly baths.
-Showers use less water.
-Unless those showers are a half hour long.
-Francine, it'll be your job...
-To kick Katherine out of the shower?
..to tell Mr Sanders about the lid you broke.
It just fell over?
Maybe it was kind of my fault.
But I went online to check out replacements.
And it wouldn't cost much more to replace the whole toilet with...
-They use 12l less per flush. Think of the savings!
Nope! I'm just ordering the lid.
Rats! A new toilet and I've won that bet for sure.
So yesterday our family used 1,600l of water.
It seems like a lot, but... Argh!
Since you OLD people are wasting all MY water,
I took things into my own hands.
DW, this is almost 4l of water! How much water have you used?!
-I don't know. The bath tubs are pretty big.
-The bath tubs?!
Arthur, whatever's wrong, hiding in the basement won't help.
Believe me - I speak from experience.
I'm reading the water meter.
In the last 24 hours, we've used...
over 2,000 litres!
I've just got to win this bet with Arthur.
I put a plastic bottle in the toilet. That will help.
Wait! I forgot to put the pool cover on.
Mom and Dad make me do it cos it saves like a tonne of water a month.
-Do you need help?
-That's OK. I'll handle it.
But this drought is a real drag.
So since yesterday... Carry the 2 + 3...
We used 2,500 litres?!
How was that possible?!
If your family keeps using water like that,
you'll be paying for it.
..Yeah, that goal in the third period was amazing.
I knew it! You can't save water at home and waste it somewhere else!
I'm calling a 20l penalty.
Well, I'll call a 200l penalty for a shower you had at a friend's house!
Sorry! It slipped out.
OK! We'll play fair for the rest of the bet. Agreed?
How did THEY get in here?
How can the numbers be going up?!
That shower was 4½ minutes. Try to shave a minute off next time.
-Where are we going?
-To get this petition signed.
How can our family be using 3,600 litres a day?!
-Something's wrong with the meter.
-The meter's fine.
It's you using up all the water in town!
Look what I found in my suggestion box!
Everyone signed a petition for new toilets.
Do you know how many units...?
'3,600 litres a day?!
'What happens if the number just keeps rising?'
# ..for the midnight train... #
You've done it now, Francine!
You just used all the water in Ellwood city!
No! But Muffy's birthday pool party was today!
Spare any water, sir?
Thank you, sir. ..Thanks a lot, Francine(!)
I'm here! Muffy!
Thanks a lot, Francine(!)
..Not to mention the labour installing 110 toilets...
So after a whole week, the moment of truth has arrived.
The Reids used 10,500 litres last week.
How about the Frenskies?
Francine, do you run a car wash?!
I've checked for leaks in the toilet. I fixed the kitchen faucet.
-I can't figure it out.
-There's clearly only one explanation.
I read that even though alien technology is superior to ours,
they failed to develop flush toilets for their space ships.
Which means only one thing.
They have to make intergalactic rest stops on our planet.
The aliens must really like your bathroom.
-Aliens?! Thanks, Buster! I'll keep that in mind.
-My parents are out, so that must have been Katherine.
If it wasn't her, it must have been...
-What shall we do?
We can't burst in. It's not polite - even if it IS an alien.
-That's another 20 litres!
All right, alien, I've had it with you!
Nemo?! So you're the one?!
That's why I have a dog.
I tried not to put too many books in it today.
Don't worry, Francine - only ten days left.
At least Sanders replaced all the toilets in my building.
Over ten years, he'll save 25 million litres of water.
So I lost the bet, but I also kind of won.
