insurance coverage

for 200 new cars...

... during their transportation

from the shop to the parking lot.

The problem is, drivers are recruited

from unemployment agancies.

Conclusion:
not a risk

worth taking.

There's a solution for everything.

if we haven't found it yet it only meens

we haven't thought of it.

The airport office needs incurance

Let's do it.

We have to know the enemy.

Someone from us will work there

as a driver for a day.

we have to form an opinion.

Karl, will you please do it?

Mr. Temblin draw us an

analysis of the competitors.

Excuse me mr.Nauman

You want me to drive cars for a day?

Yes maybe you have to do it.

I need glasses.

Here's the new taxing plan

for automibiles.

- Everything OK?

- yes.

If you're to do it

you have to go.

I called at the employment agency.

The company will be

interviewing people on 14:00.

I wouldn't do it.

You won the golden Archer,

and now you'll drive cars around?

Get it here!

They don't wash our luxury cars

before returning them!

- What do want to do?

- To drive cars.

Why?

I need the money.

I don't beleive you.

I want to take a break from the university.

What are you studying?

Theology.

Really? Very good

God's word.

Sing me something.

Something that comes from inside.

- Sorry I can't

- It's okay. I'm Fernandes.

I'm the boss.

If you sing, you don't get the job.

I want responsible drivers,

not rock stars.

Only two places available

for all the people here.

You'll drive the best cars:

W, ercedes...

... they even got two Lambrghini.

What are they doing?

You have to sing?

Whatever you do, don't sing!

Tell him you talk to god every night.

To the tall guy?

Thanks!

God's man!

Tommorrow be faster.

- And wear comfortable clothes.

- OK.

Hi, how's it going?

I've got two more cars.

For tonight?

You're killing me!

I'll send you two drivers.

But you'll pay their return tickets.

Where the hell are you?

I spoke to Fernandes

The other car arrived half an hour ago.

Here's your ticket.

The plane leaves in 45 min.

Great!

You know why this huge

metallic thing...

... full of seats airhostesses and people

is able to fly?

The air move faster

on the top of the wing...

The air comes from the front.

The wing has a slope

so the air goes faster

Even if it hits the wing with

the same speed

It creates suction.

And so we fly.

Great isn't it?

It's the same with sailing.

The boat moves not only

because the wind blows.

The wind pulls the sail.

It goes through the sail

creating suction.

- When we sail against the wind.

- Exactly!

You can sail against the wind.

How great is that?

Could you leave me alone for a while?

For sure.

Are you afraid of flying?

No.

Your angst is

repressed memories.

It causes panic, tachycardia,

makes breathing difficult.

You think it's a physical reaction

but it's old traumas.

Images and associations

.

They subconsciously cause

internal turmoil.

Yes, but I'm not scared of flying.

Do you believe in god?

No.

Fernandez said

you are a man of god.

I studied theology for a while...

Then you can't sleep with women!

You mustn't touch them?

Or caress them?

- Not at all?

- I read about it once.

- I do whatever I want

- Anything?

- Whatever you want?

- Yes

- And you don't believe in God?

- No.

That's nice.

- Do you believe in God?

- Of course.

Are you happy?

- I don't know.
