Oh, yes, baby.

And you know what?

It'd be so great

'cause it would be like

a brand-new start for us.

Like if either one of us

ever did anything in the past

that we'd like to change...

...it would just be erased.

Like, it won't count

no more, okay?


have I done somethin' wrong

I don't know about?

I mean, if I did, I'm sorry.

Oh, honey, no. No.

Well, what?

No, honey.

It's just something that I

really, really want to do.

Picture it...

Reno... with all

them bright lights...

and all the action.

Oh, baby,

it would be so perfect.

Please. Please, please, please,

please, please.

Well, hell, if it means

that much to you, I'm game.

Let's do it.

- Oh!

- [Laughs]

Thank you, thank you,

thank you, thank you.

Tell me.

I hate surprises.

Well, just see for yourself.


You didn't.

- I did.

- Oh, zeah...

You sure did. Whoa!

- Oh, my Lord.

- Oh, zeah...

You did.

You horn dog, you.

See there?

Ain't she a beaut?

Dealer exclusive.

Anniversary special.

Boy, this son of a bitch

has got everything on it

except electric dick massage.

I can't believe you, Lonnie.

Are we really gonna take this

across the country?

Hell, yeah, we're gonna take it

across the country.

It's got to cost a fortune!

Nothing's too good

for my friends.

We're gonna be ridin'

and stylin' and profilin'.

It smells loud.


That's probably that Corinthian

leather, is what that is.

- I would imagine.

- That's real leather?

Well, hell, yeah,

it's real leather.

- Dang me.

- You know what?

Besides that, I had Jerome

unhook the odometer.

Sell the son of a bitch

like brand-new when we get back.

- [Laughs]

- See what I'm sayin'?

- You're my hero.

- What do you think, Ronnie?

- These wheels are sweet.

- Yeah, they are, ain't they?
