This episode marks the one-month anniversary of the hurricane.
In this episode we see that the clothes and weapons are being sent an island:
122 miles southeast of Miami
Russell: What's in here? (shows Tom's double locked room)
Mariel: I think it's where Tom keeps his guns.
Russell: You think?
Mariel: I've never actually been in there.
Russell: (referring to Tom & the books he's been reading) He sure looks like a guy plotting to take over the world.
Tom: Thanks for letting me steal the kids.
Mariel: (reading Tom's note) The children and I are going on a litlle adventure. It should be good for everyone.
Derek: You're on the island of misfit toys honey. And once we go through basic training, we're coming back with a vengeance.
