  • Mercedes (the woman who brought her dog aboard the plane) bonding with the two boys. She was so guilt-stricken after her dog was killed by the snakes that she befriended the eldest boy, who was in the midst of drawing a picture of the snake that bit his brother. While she was disturbed at the drawing, she was impressed with it. The boy, in turn, offered her condolences for her dog; she was visibly touched. She would later comfort him while his brother was administered the antivenom at the end.
