Face before its old and dying engine finally gave up the ghost. Its driver
jumped out and had time to get in a few good punches on Face before he was
grabbed by Hannibal, who had time to get in a few good punches on him before he
was grabbed by three other goons, who had all the time in the world to drag the
two of them into the warehouse. They were only distracted by Murdock for a
moment as the pilot made a frantic attempt to save the situation. He was out of
his head and babbling about a tractor appearing from the sky, so the bad guys
had to grab him and drag him inside, too.

Murdock were both tied up, but the unconscious Face had simply been dumped

climbed down the tree and followed Jipster past the [tractor], now a useless
heap, towards the warehouse. She nodded brightly to the guards at the door, who
stared back dumbly as she led BA inside. They continued to stare dumbly, simply

the pages until she reached a scene near the end.
"See? It says it right here. The A-Team will not only escape, but they will get all of you thrown into jail in the process," Jipster said, pointing at the page.
