Suggested correction: He meant one elevator bank that actually worked. During the time they waited, none came.

Suggested correction: Both "labeled" and "labelled" are correct spellings of the word. Labeled is chiefly the American spelling whereas labelled is chiefly the British spelling. It should be noted, co-writer Wash Westmoreland is British.
