The Engine Cooling Fan of The Enola Gay

Legends of the Hidden Temple
Lost Season 4, Episode 36
The Engine Cooling Fan of The Enola Gay

The camera traverses its way through several plants to simulate a thick rainforest. It eventually makes its way to a large stone head. Its eyes light up and it begins to speak.

OLMECpx]The Moat:[/b]
OLMEC:
Hanging above the vines are roots from an ancient garden. When Kirk gives the signal, jump into the moat and grab the first root. Then swing across to grab the second. When you successfully transfer from the first vine to the second, continue swinging over to the other side of the moat. If you fall in, you?ll have to go back. When you reach the other side and have both feet planted, your partner can cross in the same fashion. When both teammates have their feet on the ground, run over, and hit the gong (Kirk hits gong for clarification). The first four teams to ring their gong will go on to the next round!

KIRK:
OK, Teams are you ready? (wait for response) Olmec, are you ready?

OLMEC:
Yeeeeeeeeah!

KIRK:
All right, teams: on Get into positions. Ready. Get set. GO!

The Legend:
KIRK:
As the quest continues, it?s now time for Olmec to tell us about the Engine Cooling Fan of The Enola Gay. But pay attention, everyone. Because it will be your knowledge of the legend that will bring you one step closer to
Olmec?s Temple.

OLMEC:
The year was 1945. World War II had ended in Europe after the allied troops defeated the axis powers of Germany and Italy, and Europe was free of Nazi oppression. Unfortunately, the war was far from over. The third member of the Axis powers, Japan, was still strong, and had many factions throughout Asia and the Pacific nations. President Harry S Truman of America knew that if the allies were to win in Japan, they would need an advantage like none other in history. Fortunately, the world?s top scientists were working on just such a solution in a secret project known as The Manhattan Project.

TRUMAN:
Professor Einstein! How is work going on the ultimate weapon? We need this war to end soon before we lose any more soldiers.

EINSTEIN:
The work is nearly complete, and we should be ready within the week. The splitting of the atom shall be my life?s greatest achievement, as well as the shining moment in the lives of my fellow scientists.

TRUMAN:
What about that Oppenheimer fellow? He doesn?t look too happy?

EINSTEIN:
Just ignore him. He?s been a downer since day one. Something about misusing science for destructive purposes. But he?s a good worker, so I keep around, anyways.

OLMEC:
Dr. Oppenheimer was in fact upset that such a great scientific breakthrough was being used as a weapon, so much so, that he became a campaigner against its use. But that?s another story.

TRUMAN:
Gentlemen. You have served this country proud. The bells of freedom will ring and it?s all thanks to you and your atomic bomb. Now I just need to find someone brave enough to drop it?

OLMEC:
Truman called upon the American Air Force colonel Paul Tibbets and his B-29 bomber, The Enola Gay to fly over the nation of Japan and drop two atomic bombs on the cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

TRUMAN:
Now Tibbets, I?m not going to sugar coat this. You?ll be dropping the most powerful weapon in history onto the biggest enemy we?ve ever known. This thing has the power to destroy anything within twenty miles, and leave a trail of radiation for years.

TIBBETS:
Is that all? I thought you had a challenge for me Mr. President.

OLMEC:
Tibbets took off from the island of Guam in August 1945. He dropped the first atomic bomb named ?Little Boy? on the city of Hiroshima. Then he dropped a second named ?Fat Man? on Nagasaki. Seeing the amount of destruction, caused in just one day, Emperor Tojo of Japan soon after admitted defeat, leading the allied forces to victory in World War II.

TRUMAN:
Congratulations Tibbets, you?re an American hero. If it?s alright with you, I?d like to display your plane in a museum for everyone to see.

TIBBETS:
That?d be swell Mr. President. But if it?s alright with you, I?d like to keep a part of it to remember it by?

OLMEC:
Captain Tibbets had the engine removed from the plane, as it would never be flown again. The cooling fan to this engine was separated from the rest of it, and has found its way to the temple. Your quest is to find it, and bring it back here.

KIRK:
Thank you, Olmec. Where is the engine fan?

OLMEC:
The Engine Cooling Fan of The Enola Gay can be found in The Room of the Ancient Warriors.

The Steps of Knowledge:
KIRK:
Now Teams, you are standing atop the Steps of Knowledge. In a minute, Olmec will ask you a question. If you think you know the answer, stomp down on the ancient marking in front of you. If you?re first, I?ll call on you and you can answer the question. If you?re right, you?ll move down to the next step. If you?re wrong or run out of time, I?m going to give the other teams a chance to answer. The first two teams to make it to the bottom level (Kirk descends steps for emphasis) will be one step closer to Olmec?s Temple. Olmec, if you?re ready, please give us the first question.

Temple Games:

KIRK:
Welcome back to Legends, where the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest. These two teams have proven they have the brains, but before we see who has the brawn, let?s meet our teams. (Reads individual player profiles). All right, go get ready to play the temple games; I?m going to explain what?s going on here. In the temple games, teams are competing for Pendants of Life. They?ll need these pendants to protect them from the dreaded temple guards as they make their way through the temple. There are three temple games. Olmec will tell us about game number one.

TEMPLE GAME 1:

OLMEC:
A country can?t create the most powerful weapon in the world unless they keep it a secret. America called it ?The Manhattan Project? to sound discreet. The letters of ?Manhattan? have been strewed around the pit below you. When Kirk gives the signal, jump in, find the first letter among the rubble, and come back and put it on the board. The letters can be found in any order, but only letters placed in the correct spots on the board will count. The first team member to find all nine letters, or whoever has found the most at the end of sixty seconds, wins.

KIRK:
We?re a stickler for spelling here at Legends. Hope that doesn?t pose too much of a problem. Let?s put sixty seconds on the clock. On your marks. Get set. Go.

TEMPLE GAME 2:

KIRK:
The next game is also worth a half pendant of life, and the other team can catch up there. Olmec, can you tell us about it?

OLMEC:
The names of the two atomic bombs dropped were Fat Man and Little Boy. Right now, you are both standing underneath them in a little compartment. In each of your hands are ropes attached to the bomb. Pulling them raises the bomb, while giving slack lowers it. When Kirk gives the signal, the bombs and compartments will start to move along the track. You must follow your bombs without letting it touch the ground or ceiling of its compartment, or else; Ka-boom! Whichever player can go longest without detonating the bomb before sixty seconds is up wins.

KIRK:
OK, if you?d just wait while we get our audience into the fallout shelter? Just kidding, sit down audience. Put sixty seconds on the clock. Get Ready. Get set. Go!

TEMPLE GAME 3:
KIRK:
The third and final game is worth a whole Pendant of Life, and it?ll take the cooperation of both players. Olmec, tell us about it.

OLMEC:
The atomic bomb has a blast radius of twenty miles. Unfortunately, for this game, you?ll have to be more precise. When Kirk gives the signal, grab a bomb from the bucket and toss it to your partner above. They?ll have to throw the bomb into one of the goals marked ?Nagasaki? or ?Hiroshima.? Any other goal won?t count. For every goal made, the player throwing will move further from the goals, but your partner on the ground will stay put. Whichever team has made the most goals at the end of sixty seconds wins.

KIRK:
Kids, if you ever find an atomic bomb at home, please don?t play this game. Sixty seconds on the clock. On your marks. Get set. Go!

The Temple Run:

KIRK:
Welcome back to Legends. The ______ are tough, and have proven themselves worthy and have earned the right to enter Olmec?s temple, but before they go, Olmec is going to give some information to help them retrieve The Engine Cooling Fan of The Enola Gay.

OLMEC:
You could start by sliding down into The Ledges, and climbing into The Rock Quarry. Place five stones in the bucket to lift the slab and venture into The Throne Room. Sit on the throne of the pretender to spin the wall and you could choose to go into The Swamp. Maneuver yourself through the murkiness to gain access to The Dark Forest. Reach into the holes to find the key to go up, but beware the Temple Spirits that may inhabit the trees. If you decide to plow through the wall into The Dungeon, you can attempt to shimmy up the Pharaoh?s Secret Passage. At the top, you?ll enter The Shawnee Lodge. Place the sticks into the holes in the center of the room to create the tepee, and you?ll open the door to The Shrine of The Silver Monkey. Assemble the statue, and you may be headed for The Room of the Ancient Warriors. Place yourself into the suits of armor and pull the levers, and you may be headed into the Room of The Mandarin Hand. Place the fingers onto the orb and gain entry into The King?s Storeroom. Smash the clay pots to find the key. Then race across The Troubled Bridge, pass through The Crypt, race down the stairs, and back through The Temple Gate. The choices are yours and yours alone.

You won ____ pendant(s) in the temple games. Who?s going first? (wait for response) Very well _______, when Kirk gives the signal, you?ll race through the gate into the temple and make your way towards the engine cooling fan. Hidden inside the temple are temple guards assigned to protect three specific rooms. You can trade your pendant for an extra life and go on, but if you?re caught without a pendant, you?ll be taken out of the temple and it will be _______?s turn to enter and try his/her luck. If you reach the artifact, all the doors in the temple will instantly unlock, and the temple guards will vanish. Return through the gates with the fan within three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded. And here?s how: (reads prizes).

KIRK:
Ok, guys. Let?s see if we can get you those trips. Put your mouthpieces in. Put three minutes on the clock. Olmec, can you please lower your gate? (Wait for gate to lower) On your mark, get set, go!

Temple Run Summary:
Yikes, the episode revolved around bombs, but that didn?t mean the temple run had to be one! Jane ran upstairs to the Crypt and found her first Temple Guard. She proceeded across the Troubled Bridge where she found the second. Not too bad, right? Well, maybe if she had been slower, or if the Temple Guard was faster. Jane found the key on her first try in the King?s Storeroom, and was grabbed by the Guard as she was picking it up. Unfortunately, she couldn?t or wouldn?t drop it before being taken out. Josh rushed in to complete the temple, only to discover in the Storeroom that there was no key! He looks around bewildered for thirty seconds before (apparently) Jane comes out to where Kirk is and shows him the key. Kirk's dialogue sums it up nicely:?Where?s the key? Who has the key? Jane has the key! Quick! Throw it up to him! ?Oh no! It went into the Mandarin Hand Room! What now??

Josh eventually made his way back to the Ledges and through the Rock Quarry, but time ran out as he spun the Throne. Apparently because they weren?t granted a retry, the King?s Storeroom was a dead-end. At least, that?s what I choose to believe instead of ?The producers are just a bunch of jerks.?

Memorable Moments: I believe this is the first appearance of a life-jacket at the moat, when the girl from the Blue Barracudas is seen wearing one (apparently, that fish couldn?t swim!). Dee seemed to have missed his cue during the second to last question on the steps of knowledge, as he is prompt by Kirk (?Olmec, next question? Olmec??), and then responds with a startled ?Oh!? before reading the question. Right after the Temple Games, before commercial, the camera shows a one-time appearance of a Temple Guard in the pit area as he appears from the Rock-Quarry?s bucket. Finally, listen to the Silver Snake after the first temple game when he realizes he just spelled ?Mahnattan.?
