(THUNDER RUMBLING)

(KNOCKING ON DOOR)

Come in.

Yes, Martha?

Is there anything else

you wish me to do,

madam?

No, thanks.

Then I'll just finish up

in the kitchen and go home.

Okay.

Enjoy your evening.

(THUNDER RUMBLING)

Is everything all right, madam?

Yeah, I'm fine. Thanks.

Good evening, madam.

Goodbye, Martha.

(SIGHS)

(CREAKING)

Those darn fuses again.

Do I have to fix everything

around here myself?

(THUD)

(ELECTRICITY CRACKLING)

Great.

What the heck!

First the fuses, now the plumbing?

This whole place is falling apart.

(GASPS)

(SCREAMING)

(HORN HONKING)

Ah.

Women. They're always late.

(TURN OFF ENGINE)

Hey!

Hey!

(CHUCKLING)

How you doin'?

I'm doing fine.

-How are you doin'?

All set for two weeks away from home?

From all the crap, the office gossip,

and no more boring computers.

Best of all, no more men

bossing us around.

No more men.

(LAUGHING)

Just the two of us

and my brand new car.

(LAUGHS)

Wow.

Did you rob a bank or something?

I just figured we might as well

travel in style.

Come on.

Let me put this in the back.

This is wow.

This is incredible.

Sandra who did you have to kill

to get this car?

How much did you pay for it?

That's the best part.

Nothing, absolutely nothing.

You're kidding.

You know the guy Carl--

we met at Mitsy's Bar last month?

Yeah.

-Turns out he has a huge crush on me.

So, I had to use all of my charm and

manage to persuade him

to let me kind of "test-drive"

one for a while.

You're not talking about Carl

the blonde geek with freckles, are you?

Yeah, yeah.

His cars are junk.

Cary drove one of his bargains

into a ditch

because the steering didn't work.

Sandra, we'll be lucky if we make it

to the end of the street

before the wheels fall off.

Don't be so negative.

Just park your cute little ass

in those leather seats.

And you'll be singing

an entirely different tune.

We're so dead.

Get in, crybaby.

SANDRA:
Okay, let's go.

(LOUD ROCK SONG PLAYING)

Yeah!

This song kicks ass!

A Split-Second!

Whoo! Oh, yeah.

I know these lines.

These guys are

so cool, man. Whoo-hoo!

Come on, sing with me.

(SINGING ALONG)

Come on!

(CONTINUES SINGING ALONG)

(EXCLAIMS)

You're sick!

Ow!

You like that?

Oh, yeah.

Oh, yeah!

REBECCA:
Whoo-hoo!

Oh, a gas station.

We better make a pit stop

'cause I need to use their bathroom.

Good. I need something to drink.

You sure you don't want anything?

No, thanks, I'm fine.

What a fucking dump.

(GRUNTING)

Can I help you, miss?

(GASPS)

You just scared the crap out of me.

Yeah, I want this Coke.

That will be one euro, please.

(GROWLING)

(BANGING)

Yeah, I know.

He's a good watchdog,

but sometimes he can be

a real pain in the ass.

(CHUCKLES)

Knock it off!

(BLOWS DOG WHISTLE)

(BANGING STOPS)

Sorry about that.

It's okay, ma'am.

Have a nice day.

Oh, miss, I think you lost something.

Oh!

Oh, thank you.

Shall I help you?

Sure.

(GROWLING CONTINUES)

(BANGING ON DOOR)

Thanks.

Let's go, girl.

What took you so long?

-Oh, nothing.

The woman at the counter had

some problem with her dog.

(CAR STARTS)

(ROCK MUSIC PLAYING)

You want some?

Thanks.

I'm gonna park somewhere.

I want to take something out.

(TURNS OFF ENGINE)

Could me get the map

from the glove compartment?

I would like to see where we are.

Is this your way of telling me

that we're lost?

No, don't worry.

Just give me the map.

Oh, no.

This is Carl's map, right?

(CHUCKLES) Funny.

This is what you get

for flirting with a geek.

Thanks.

Stop bitching.

We're on a holiday here.

(LAUGHS)

We're lost, right?
