Yeah! That's great! That's great!

Thank you! Thank you!

- Peter Roberts

- Yeah!

- Dad, wake up.

- Thank you! Thank you!

- Dad, wake up!

- What? What?

- Come on, we 'll be late

- Who is it? Who is it?

Dad, wake up!

We're going to be late!

Who disturbs my sleep?

- Morning. Good Morning! Hi...

- Hi...

Can you take Becca to school?

- I've got to be in court.

- I've got a 9 am.

- So do I.

- Sure. Yes.

I'm taking you to school kid.

- You want an orange?

- I already have an orange.

- What's for breakfast?

- You're too late.

By the way, have you called that guy

about the job?

What job?

No, not yet.

I told him you would.

It's an office job

but it pays more

than you're earning now,

and in case you didn't notice

we need the money.

I just don't feel like...

I won't be very fulfilled...

in a...

- office.

- I've got to go.

But Freddy's so close on the money.

I talked to him.

I talked to him last week.

He hasn't called me back yet,

but he's so close on the cash, man,

it's just like...

- It's just like...

- Maybe Freddy

can pay our mortgage.

Are you two going to fight again?

- Go get your bag, honey.

- Yeah, go get dressed.

Go put on a tie or something.

Look, I 'm sorry,

but using our money

to put a down payment

on that monstrosity.

It's not a monstrosity.

- What is it?

- It's a school.

It's racing school.

It's a school where people race.

And I teach them.

I teach them how to race.

Because that's what I'm good at.

It's what I do.

I'm gonna be late.

What I used to do.

Now I don't do that.

Wait, don't leave me!

Do we have to go in your car?

What does it look like?

You see any other cars around here?

Whoa, whoa whoa.

You can sit up front with me.

No, someone might see me!

This is a perfectly good car, kid.

Your dad makes his living

driving this car.

Okay, speed bump.

This car, it pays for your clothes,

it pays for your food, it pays for

this incredibly expensive school

that you take for granted.

Mommy pays for most of it.


OK Junior.

Go on.

Have fun, OK?

Love you. See you. Bye.


Oh hi, yeah.

I'm just... outside.

Yes, sure, if you can give me another

couple of weeks

then I will have the money. I...

Yes, I... understand.

But we've had some...

plumbing problems lately.

And I mean wow, like... really expensive.

So, I'm a little short right now.


No, no, no, I understand.

I understand completely.

There's always public school.

Thank you. Thank you so much.

It's another beautiful day

on the Gold Coast.

24 degrees Celsius with

perfect beach conditions forecast.

...will experience a late morning change

with a storm front moving in

from the west

bringing scattered showers from

the hinterland

and coastal ranges.

Monday through Saturday.

Sundays can be arranged

but at a higher cost.

I will just as soon as he walks in.

- Good morning sexy lady.

- Thank you. - Sorry.

How are we today?

- Do that great accent that you do.

- No.

- Come on, just one more time.

- No!

- Hi Mr. Roberts.

- You're back.


Um... yeah.

I wasn't scheduled until 9.

9 o'clock? It can't be 9 o'clock.

Ow! Jesus Christ!

- Are you alright?

- It's hot!

- Do you need help?

- Hey! Back up! Sit!

- Is she mine?

- Not today mate.

You've got a personal. A Mr. Keller?

He's waiting out the front.


Mr. Keller?

Mr. Roberts.

You must be my 9 o'clock.

- Indeed I am.

- Pleasure.


I assume I 'm a little older

than your usual clientele.

Oh no, we get all kinds if

you can believe it.

- I can.

- Good.

- So you're an American.

- Yeah.

- We have something in common.

- Yes, that's why

- I picked you.

- Okay.

- So you've driven before?

- Uh-huh.

Yeah, but you know, I was on

the other side of the road

in America since I was 16.

OK. I think we'll probably...

- Shall we ah...

- Yeah, yeah, sure, sure.

I just need a signature.

- Okay.

- Right here.

In case anything happens...

Mental, physical incapacity, no.

- I can fill that out later.

- That's good. OK.

Yeah, thanks mister. Thank you.

OK, I don't have a current address.

I'm just here on business for the week.

- Shall we um...

- Sure, sure.

Why don't we take it on the main road,

to see where you're at.

- You've got a little experience.

- Yeah, I do.

Sure you have.

That's the windshield wipers there.

- Yeah.

- One click up.

- No, the other way. Up.

- Oh sh*t!

Up. You just want to click those up

one more time.

- I did, you see? It's not...

- One more time.

Click it up.

There you go.

Alright, why don't you back it on up.

We're going to take you out on the

main street. Oh!

- Aren't we forgetting something?

- What?

- Seat belt.

- Oh yes, of course.

You know,

I want to keep everything nice and legal.

- Yeah.

- Street legal as they say, right?

- Street legal.

- OK.

- Alright.

- Go ahead.

- Let's open this

- f***er up!

- Whoa!

Easy now. Hold on.

Ease up on the gas a little.

I thought you liked a little

Whoa now!

Hey, slow down. Please slow down.

It's residential.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hang on. Let this guy go around OK?

- Go where?

- Go around.

Just let him go around.

Don't pull up.
