All around the room, the EXITS are sealed by heavy EMERGENCY PRESSURE DOORS. The doors to the LADDER start to close, then stop, sliding back open. What the--- pflarb! Water in your mouth! Pflurble!
You sprint for the LADDER as water begins to quickly fill the room.
Gotta Hurry! Gotta climb faster! Like a NAVY SEAL! Or, like, a CLOWN! They climb LADDERS really fast, don't they? To get to the TRAPEZE? Or is that just ACROBATS? YOU DON'T KNOW! YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO THINK ABOUT IT RIGHT NOW!!! You can see the hatch to the ROOM above just ahead, JUST A LITTLE FURTHER!!!
