- Hey, how about you guys

give us a little push, okay?

- We happen to be a little busy.

- Oh, hell, sure, take your time.

- [Seally] Come on now, son.

Push just, just a little further.

Are you pushing any?

- [Little Fauss] Doing the best I can.

- [Seally] These potties,

they seem like they's

more trouble than they's worth.

- [Big Halsy] Me and the

wife come down from Mendoza.

Dang thing cutting out

on me every five minutes.

Now the dang thing won't even start.

My wife's getting hotter than hell.

She's expecting a steak dinner tonight.

I said, ''Honey, you just cool

on down 'cause those folks

''over there's gonna

give us a little push.''

Hey, you got all your beer locked up?

- I don't sell no beer.

- You can go load your bike now.

- Sure like to buy ya'll a beer, damnit.

- Sideburned son of a--

- Now don't get riled, Seally.

- Well, I ain't giving no

hand to no undesirables.

- Got a cigarette?

- I don't smoke.

- Ah, damn.

Just gave my last cigarette away, damnit.

Just spent my last two bucks

getting here today, damnit.

(spits) Blew my pickup coming on over

and then burned out my bike in the trial

so I didn't win nothing,

then I lost my sponsor

if I'd had any luck, which I didn't have,

so now I don't even have a smoke.

- [Seally] You ready, son?

- This guy wants a push, Dad.

- Hey, just a little shove's

all I need to get her going.

Hey, how about a push?

What the hell?

Come on, hey, I need a push, damnit!

(whistling wind)

- Let's have a nice, big smile.

Come on.

Ice cream!

Oh, that's great.

Hold it.

Hey, that was a number one.

That's really good, you

want to take another one?

- Hey, how about a beer? You want a beer?
