Nicholas gets Feingold to take him into the CRS building after Feingold reveals that CRS owns the entire 20-story building but that they keep changing the offices from floor to floor. Feingold leads him to a cafeteria where Christine (Deborah Kara Unger) and all the other actors that have figured into his Game are sitting around, eating and talking. Using Christine as a hostage, Nicholas tries to leave the cafeteria, but the guards open fire on him, inadvertently shooting Feingold. Christine leads Nicholas out on the roof of the building and tries to convince him that this is all part of the Game and that the people pursuing him are just his birthday guests, but Nicholas doesn't believe a word that Christine says. Then she notices that the gun he has pointed on her is not the automatic that the CRS security guard had in the parking garage. "He's got a gun!" she screams as the door to the roof opens and Nicholas fires off a bullet into the abdomen of his brother Conrad (Sean Penn), who is carrying a bottle of champagne. "You shot him! He's dead," Feingold exclaims. Totally distraught, Nicholas walks off the edge of roof and falls 20 stories, breaks through two skylights, and lands on a huge air-filled balloon in the middle of a restaurant filled with his family and friends, all waiting for the birthday boy to drop in. After Nicholas is helped down from the balloon, Conrad appears, carrying a T-shirt that reads: I WAS DRUGGED AND LEFT FOR DEAD IN MEXICO - AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS STUPID T-SHIRT. The party guests give Nicholas a round of applause, Feingold tells Nicholas, "Thank God you jumped. If you hadn't, I was supposed to throw you off," and the birthday celebration ensues. In the final scenes, Nicholas asks Christine (who reveals that her real name is Claire) whether she will have dinner with him. Unfortunately, Christine/Claire is on her way to Australia, but she invites Nicholas to have coffee with her at the airport.
