Kat: Oh god...
Jack: Wait what?
Gordon: Y-you shitting me?
Oliver: W-wait how...
Doctor: He had a very aggresive cancer. We found out about a two months ago. He er... also was holding this tape close to him. Almost like he knew he would die. He also asked me to give it to his friends when they showed up. so here... Sorry for your lose.
[Group go to werehouse and play tape]
Gabe: If you guys are watching this. then I am dead. If not get the fuck out of my stuff. The reason I wanted to make this film was because I had cancer. doctor got it in its VERY late stages and well... there was not much they could do about it... So. I desided to do all shit I wanted to do. For those who had helped me with this I will split my estate between you lot. I did not have 50,000. I have 7,000,000. I was born into a VERY wealth family and due to a few accidents I was the only one left. And before you ask WHY I worked in a mine it was to get fit. Like revise gym. Like they pay ME! to git fit... or would it be paying me to get fat... hu... anyways I will also be giving you the rest of my scripts incause you want to make them all or get an offer to make them. Thank you for making my dream real... I hope the future will be kind to you guys. good bye... and thanks for all the fish.
