Consider this scenario: you and your friends are all hanging out on the Golden Gate Bridge. Suddenly, all of your friends run to the side and jump off. Given that this is probably a very dangerous thing to do, wouldn't you say it's safe to assume that they had a good reason to do it? And given that they all did it at the same time, without taking the time to explain why, wouldn't you say it's safe to assume that it was urgent?
You'd be a fool not to follow them.

Are you envisioning the Golden Gate bridge detonating behind them, like an action-movie tableau?

Not until you mentioned it. I was just envisioning the scenario I inferred from the unmentioned stupid rhetorical question, from the point of view of the person who doesn't know what's going on.
