Burt is chasing Stark up a long stairwell in an office building. Stark is a few flights above Burt. He throws a hand grenade down the stairs. It lands right in front of Burt. Burt shouts with elation that he is finally going to die. The grenade rolls away and falls down the middle of the stairwell exploding harmlessly far below. Stark looks down and says, "Yeah."
Burt suddenly peeks out from just a few flights below Stark and shouts, "YOU MISSED ME AGAIN, YOU IDIOT!"
