-Narrator, September 11th

Tim and Moby are at the future site of the new World Trade Center, when Tim pulls out a letter that asks why someone would want to cause the events of 9/11. He explains that a hijacked plane crashed into one of the Twin Towers in New York City. Later, another plane crashed into the other Twin Tower, causing it to collapse as well. Two more planes crashed and in the end, almost 3,000 people lost their lives. Tim also tells us about al-Qaeda. Afterward, Moby buys a I ❤ NY t-shirt, to which Tim says, "I couldn't agree more".
