Moving McAllister

Synopsis: Rick Robinson is a ladder-climbing law intern from Miami with four days until the Bar Exam. Desperate to score points with his boss (McAllister), he commits to a favor he can't afford. He ends up in a rundown truck headed to L.A. with his boss's possessions, his Hollywood-bound niece, and her pet pig. Amidst hitch-hikers, breakdowns, and assorted local yokels, Rick finds love, life and maybe himself in this trans-American road trip from hell.

[Man narrating]

My niece is a basket case,

but she's a good kid.

She wants to be an actress.

Hmm..

Savannah, Georgia.

Flying won't work.

There's a pet,

and I have a crate full

of stuff at my house.

Miami to L.A.

Get an intern, they've

gotta be good for something.

No, we need someone

boring, predictable,

a real kiss-ass

kind of guy.

[watch beeps]

Hello, Mr. Ragstan, beautiful

tie. Latte and...

Can you check yourselves

off please?

Hi. How are you doing?

That's it.

"Whereas conduct is

expressly declared by law

to establish his complicity."

Keep reading,

please.

Hey! I need 50 copies of

these by tomorrow morning.

Thanks, Mr.Thompson, I can stay

late and get this done for you.

I like that tie, I do.

You want it collated?

All this work for what, Rick?

So that you can

end up like that guy?

No Carl. So I can end

up like that guy,

and be a

partner some day.

Just gotta get my

foot in the door first.

Maxwell McAllister, huh?

That's someone you want to

pattern your life after?

Eighty hours a week and an ulcer

the size of a grapefruit.

Well, see you in

the bar book, buddy.

As for me,

I'm out of here.

Thundercats is on.

It's only 4:
20.

Exactly.

Don't you think it's

about time to move on?

Just make a

serious effort?

Look, I'm losing you.

I'm in the elevator.

Bye.

[elevator bell rings]

Thanks.

I just love

working here, sir.

Great firm, sir.

Yeah.

And if-if there's

anything I can ever do,

anything you need,

I'm talking anything, I mean--

I'm moving a few

things tomorrow,

I could use

an extra hand.

Yeah, I can move. I just--

I take stuff, and I put it--

I'm wondering if I should

tell you about my niece.

She's very beautiful.

Means the world to me.

I put her through college.

I don't think

I know her.

She's a bit of a talker.

And between you and me,

she's also a little...wild.

You know what I mean?

Yeah.

I mean, no, no.

If you touch her,

I will break every

little bone in your body.

my house.

[elevator bell rings]

Keep the

handkerchief.

See you

tomorrow.

Oh. Oh, can

I get my shoe back?

[elevator dings]

[McAllister]

"A truck is waiting at

Paradise rentals.

"Pick up my niece

in Georgia and take her

to this address in L.A.

I expect change."

Inhale, step your foot

back to plank pose.

Exhale, chadaranga.

Inhale, pull forward and up.

Open the heart center.

Exhale, hips to the sky.

Five deep breaths.

[cell phone ringing]

What is it?

I'm working out.

Carl, I need a number

for McAllister.

I've never even

seen the man.

Cell phones are not

allowed in class.

My wife just had

a miscarriage.

I'm so sorry.

Yeah, you should be.

Go do your thing.

Carl, he wants me

to move his niece to

his house in Los Angeles.

I'm supposed to

pick her up in Savannah.

This is going to ruin

our entire study plan.

Ooh, Savannah.

Georgia. That means

that she's a Southerner.

Does she have

a nice little accent?

Look, the Bar's in four days.

I don't think I can make it.

I gotta talk to McAllister.

Rick, this is what

you've been dreaming about.

No, it's not.

You bet it is. It's your

chance to prove to McAllister

that you've got what it takes

to be a part of his team.

You really think so?

Yeah, I'm sure of it.

Rick, you're taxing me.

Now are you going to

get with the niece?

Look, he said he--

He said, and I quote,

"If you touch her, I will

break every bone in your body."

He wrote that down.

Oh...forbidden love.

This is so hot.

I got an exam to

study for, Carl.

Will you please

focus?

Rick, I ask you

this as a friend,
