Allie, the teddy bear, Mercedes, Christina, and Eddie in front of the first and second stages. Note that the ovals on the first stage are open, as well as the open areas on the bottom of the second stage. These are pressure relief openings for when the second stage ignites, and the first stage has not entirely separated from the second stage.
