Rich Harrington: So I've dragged the entire crew out into the woods.…Robbie Carman: For mosquito bites really.…Rich: Absolutely, yeah.…There's lots of really big mosquitoes here.…And I've been wandering around looking for power plugs…for the last half hour, and I can't find any.…Robbie: Well I saw one on a couple trees back. Okay.…Rich: Oh.…They keep sending me on snipe hunts too.…But we gave up on looking for power outlets and…instead we're going with some, alternate ways of powering lights.…And our first one that we have here.…You've got one,…I've got one.

Make a whole lot of sense.…They throw off a nice, you know, relatively soft light.…Flattering light. Rich: Yeah.…Robbie: And they can go anywhere with these things.…Have somebody hold them.…You know, put them on a dashboard. Rich: And that's what's great.…
