The way I look at it,

it wasn't really anybody's fault.

So my insurance company will

probably pay for the entire fence.

And, and that should be fine. Is that okay?

Won't be the same.

Wait. This ain't a kit car, is it?

No, it ain't. It isn't...

My name is Ben Stone. Look, I'm a... I'm a

doctor. I'm a medical doctor. I'm a surgeon.

Awesome. Who thrashed the fence?

I'm Ben Stone. Now I can give you the

address of my clinic in Los Angeles.

Did he just say he's been stoned?

He says he's from L.A.

Send me the bill there. If you want,

we can handle it with plastic.

I'm not really from L.A.

I'm just on my way to...

You lucky I just happened to be passing

through. -What's in the trunk? Pot?

I'm a surgeon. Uh... come on. Will you

get away! Get away! Get away from the car!

Sorry.

Not you, the dog.

Probably the finest fence I'll ever put up.

I know a Willie Stone up in Stanton.

That family of yours?

Can I tell you I understand

what you're trying to do here?

Hey, this the new Mazda?

Porsche Speedster.

I will not put up with

any small-town bullshit!

Hey, where's the dang engine?

Get away from this car!

You're not touching this car.

You don't even know where the engine is!

Gotcha.

Look, I'm sorry about what happened.

But it was an accident, okay?

It was nobody's fault.

Get me to a telephone.

I'll call a Porsche mechanic in the

next big city. I'll get my car fixed.

I'll be on my way... and...

and you can go back to doing, you know..

.. whatever it is you do.

All right. I admit!

I flattened the damn fence.

What are you gonna do? Lock me up?

Court finds defendant guilty of crimes

under motor vehicle code 4-50-3 dash 1-9,

.. reckless driving, and 4-60 dash 2,

reckless endangerment.

This is insane.

No, this is Grady.

Your honor, there were cows
