- Where is it?

- May I ask what

you're looking for?

- You know what I'm looking for.

- Where is it?

- Goddammit.

- That's the last one, okay?

Just take it easy on that shit.

- That's enough.

Put it back.

Can you do me a favor?

Can you save some

for the flight?

- Whatever, pussy.

- What?

- You heard me.

- Call me a pussy again, see what happens.

- Pussy.

What the f*ck are you doing?

- I don't wanna listen

to it anymore.

- You know what?

It doesn't even matter.

We're gonna be drinkin' 40's

on an island soon.

- Yeah.

- Ugh.

- What?

- Pull over.

- Oh, come on, man!

- Don't fuckin' puke in my car!

Jesus Christ!

- Are you okay?

- Get it all out.

I told you to take it easy.

Fuckin' lightweight.

You good?

- Never better, baby.

- No more stops.


- Oh, shit.

No, no, no.

You're making...

You're making it worse.


- Shut up for one second,


- Nick, stop!

- You really are

a fuckin' train wreck.

- You're the one that decided

to pull into the sand.

Can we, like... wedge a piece

of wood underneath it?

- Where do you see a piece

of wood anywhere?

Look around.


- How far is it to the airfield?

- Thirty miles at least.

Can we walk?

- I doubt AAA is

gonna be available.

- Huh, how about you

shut the hell up

so I can make this call

to Jimmy?

- AAA. Very funny.

- Asshole.

- Hey, man.

- Hey, hey, hey. Jimmy.

- Dog, I got a real

problem, man.

- Hello...?

- You got... hey!

- Jimmy, can you hear me?

It's Nick.

- I can't hear you.

- Can you hear me, man?

Jesus Christ.

- Nick!


- You don't see me

tryin' to do somethin'?

- Look.

- Who the hell's that?

No, no, no, no, no.

- What?

Who is that?

- F*ck you.

What the f*ck?

I got something for you.

- What the hell are you doing?

- What does it look like

I'm doing?

Oh, Jesus Christ.

- Come on!

Come on!

- Shoot him in the head!

- I'm trying!

Just shoot him!

- I need you to shut the f*ck up

for one second!

- Okay. Okay.

You got it.

Oh my god!

That's right!

Down for the count, bitch!

- Punk bitch! Punk bitch!

- Yeah you did!

Oh, baby.

- They're not as bad as they

make 'em sound on the news.

- No.

- If that motherfucker

ain't dead, he dead now.

- Yeah.

- Are you serious, bro?

- Shoot him in the head.

Shoot him in the head!


You wanna f*ck with me?!

- Nick.

Nick, it's empty.

Nick, it's empty!

Nick, come on, let's go!

Oh my god,

it's gonna break the glass!

Do you think it can break it?

Oh my god.

Jesus, look at it.

- Where's the phone?

- Oh...

- I dropped it.

I dropped it.

- Great. Nick,

what're we gonna do now?

- Just wait!


Give it five minutes.

He's bound to lose

interest eventually.


- So we'll just wait, huh?

Great fuckin' plan.

- Maybe if you learned to

handle your shit like an adult

you would have paid

your own damn phone bill.

Then I could have called Jimmy.

He might be here picking us up

right now.

- Okay, don't give me that shit.

You're the one

who dropped your phone.

- Shut the f*ck up.

Just shut the f*ck up, alright?

- Oh yeah,

big bad gangster here,

you couldn't even shoot it

from ten feet away.

- I swear to god, Molly,

if you keep talking...

- What're you gonna do?

- You're really pushing it.

- Do it.

You fuckin' loser.

Where'd it go?

Turn the high beams on.

Do you see it?

- It's too dark.

- Get that flashlight out of my bag.

- Okay.

- Got it.

- You sure?

- Yep.

I'm sorry.

- I think he's gone.

- What do you wanna do?

- I gotta get the phone.

- Are you crazy?

- What choice do I have?

We've been here the entire time.
