The Attendant gives Lucy five dollars in change. She

hands it to Sam, indicating the Two Runaways.

LUCY:

Tell them to get something to eat.

SAM:

I thought we were poor.

LUCY:

Not that poor.

Sam runs off as Michael starts his prize possession.

LUCY:

Still mad at me?

MICHAEL:

For what.

LUCY:

For everything.

Michael can't deal with this and just roars his engine.

LUCY:

If you want to check it out and

meet us later it's okay.

Sam returns, having heard this.

SAM:

What!? He can and I can't?! No

fair!!

MICHAEL:

That's okay, Mom. I can see it

later. I'll help you unload.

Lucy seems pleasantly surprised by Michael's display of

responsibility. She and Sam get in the Rover as the

Runaways shout to them.

RUNAWAY:

Hey, thanks, lady.

LUCY:

(to Runaways)

Use some of it to call home.

(to Sam as they

pull out)

Those kids look like me twenty

years ago.

SAM:

When you ran away from home, hitch-

hiked to Berkeley, spent the night

in Golden Gate Park and begged for

spare change in the morning?

LUCY:

You've heard this story before?

SAM:

So many times, I'm starting to

think it happened to me.

11 EXT. GRANDPA'S HOUSE - DAY 11

A long winding road leads to the old lodge-like funky

house. The Land Rover pulls up followed by Michael on

his motorbike.

GRANDPA, a rugged individualist wearing old denims,

Indian moccasins, long grey braid down his back, is a

lifeless form on the front porch. Lucy and sons approach.

MICHAEL:

He looks dead.

LUCY:

He's just a deep sleeper.

MICHAEL:

He's not breathing, Mom.

Lucy becomes concerned as she feels his head.

SAM:

If he's dead can we move back to

Phoenix?
