Los Angeles is a sprawling Southern California city and the center of the nation’s film and television industry.
When Phil witnesses a nuclear plant melting down and the group later discovering all the nuclear plants will soon explode, they settle on going to Mexico. But when Phil's geiger counter goes off through their original route, they are forced to go through Los Angeles, a place they were hoping to avoid as Pat Brown is possibly in the city.
Despite Phil's plead that he is probably dead, Carol's house catches on fire, where Pat's ice cream truck spots the big cloud of smoke. They arrive to a marina where they discover Carol's house has caught fire, making Carol upset. The group chooses a boat as quick as possible, but are delayed due to Phil's long speech. It doesn't help the group's situation to avoid Pat anymore as he is slowly coming towards them. He eventually reaches the boat and holds Phil at gunpoint. As soon as Pat prepares to shoot Phil, Pat is shot in the head and falls and reveals to have been shot by Pamela Brinton.
