On January 1, 1986, in Manhattan, NY. A man, who spent New Year's Eve at a party, snorting cocaine, donning women's clothes, and seducing two women into having sex with him, wakes up the next day, half-naked, smeared in make-up, and strapped to his water bed. As he screams, he kicks his stiletto-heeled feet, puncturing his water bed, which then leaks. The man keeps struggling until all the water from the leaking mattress engulfs him and he drowns.

As she falls to her death, the mean stewardess/flight attendant is exposed to high-speed winds that shreds her skin, suffocates her to death from the atmospheres due to lack of oxygen, and eventually freezes to death from the extreme cold of being 30,000 feet in the air, and she dies before landing into the ocean.
