Into the Night

Synopsis: Ed Okin's life is somewhat out of control. He can't sleep, his wife betrays him, and his job is dull. One night, he starts to drive through Los Angeles, and he finally ends in the parking garage of Los Angeles International Airport. Moments later, a beautiful young lady jumps onto his bonnet and he finds himself being chased by four Iranians. What follows is a wild chase through the streets of Los Angeles, and a very funny one too.

[ "Into the Night"

Performed By B. B. King ]

Caught in a quick sand

and I'm startin' to sink

So tired of strugglin' that

my mind can barely think

I don't know

where I'm goin'

Lord, I don't know

what I'm gonna do

My fuel supply is finished

There ain't nothin 'left

to burn

I need someone to help me

But I don't know

which way to turn

I know I don't have much

of a choice

I'll go out of my mind

Or into the night

I'm rollin' and tumblin'

Spinnin' end over end

Got to have

some peace and quiet

So I can find myself again

Still if you ask me

what's the matter

I just don't know

what to say

There's people all around me

but I feel so alone

I guess they'd like

to help me

But I have to do it

on my own

I know I don't have much

of a choice

I'll go out of my mind

Or into the night

Into the night

Do you want some coffee?

Just a minute.

What did you say?

Do you want me to make you some coffee?

No. No, thanks.

Aren't you hungry?

Oh, yeah, sure.

What's the matter, Ed?

Why aren't you sleeping?

I don't know.

Well, what can I do?

Just love me, okay?

Oh, that's Stan.

What is it?

Am I doing something wrong?

- No, of course not.

- Well, what is it?

I don't know.

Oh, we better go.

Herb's probably

going berserk by now.

- Herb can wait.

- I gotta go.

Have a nice day.

"Have a nice day"?


Los Angeles

It's the Ken and Bob Company.

Loman and Barkley

I'm moving! I'm moving!

In the morning

Hear how good

Our country sounds


Rick Dees in the morning


KOST- 103. Good morning.

I'm David K. Duncan.

Commander Chuck Street

with traffic. How's it going?

we've got a slowdown on that

south bound Pasadena freeway.

This is the Dave Hull program

on KRLA,

but we are gonna

interrupt the show now

for this special announce--

Don't you want to hear

what happened?

No, not really.

If it's important, I guess

they'll let us know anyway.

Ah, a smilel

Okay, now we're

gettin' somewhere.

All right, Mr. No-Sleep,

I have something for you.

What's three miles long

and has an I.Q of 165?

A Saint Patrick's Day parade.


it's a Cinco de Mayo parade.

I can't sleep anymore,


Are you gonna be all right?

I don't wantyou nodding off

at the wheel.

No, no, I'm fine.

We can switch.

I'm fine. I'm okay.

I don't know.

I don't know.

My job is a dead end.

I feel weird,

like I'm from another

planet or something.

Ellen kissed me on the top

of my head this morning

and said, "Have a nice day. "

- Can you believe that?

- What's wrong with that?

Bank tellers say,

"Have a nice day."

The cashier at the supermarket

says, "Have a nice day."

I just think that somehow

yourwife should say something

better than, "Have a nice day."

You're losing your mind, Ed.

How long have you had insomnia?

My last good night's sleep?

Yeah, the full eight hours.

Seems like... 1980.

Yeah, the summer of 1980.

You're in bed. You can't sleep.

I don't see the problem.

You go to the airport,

catch the midnight flight

to Las Vegas.

Nobody sleeps there.

Very funny, Herb.

No, listen, I'm serious.

You need some action.

I'm not a gambler.

Don't gamble.

Have a few drinks.

See a show.

Get loose.

Get laid.

Oh, wonderful.

I'm sure Ellen would love it.

You'll be home

before she wakes up.

Sex isn't the problem.

When was the last time

you f***ed your wife?

You're a classy guy, Herb.

Up in Vegas, there's

a beautiful, young girl

named Melissa.

She will do anything

you want for $200 an hour.

Two hundred dollars?

Anything you want.


For example?

if you want,

she'll dress up
