Synopsis: Diane's free-wheeling life of drunken one-night-stands as a professional trucker hits a road block when Peter, her son, is dropped at her doorstep. Her former husband Len, whom she abandoned eleven years ago along with their new-born son, has cancer and no one else to turn to while he's in the hospital. Peter, resentful and wary, wants, even needs a mother who'll want him at this worrisome time but knows better than to expect this from Diane. With deliveries waiting and a mortgage to be paid, there's only one inevitable thing ahead for Diane and Peter - a road trip together.

[ Grunts ] That

was pretty good, right?



You know, I get this really

stupid employee discount

at that restaurant.

If we walked over there,

they'd pretty much give me

an entre for free.

But that's not

really my style,

you know?

Or we could head back

to my place.

My shift doesn't start until

a movie or something.

Like I said,

I get paid by the mile.

[ Sighs ]

Sounds like that's

a pretty dangerous job.

A lot more dangerous things

if you made a list.

You got a list?

No. [ Laughs ]

No, I don't have a list.

You sure you're not hungry?

Do you wanna

watch TV?

Got to make it to Reno

in the morning.

Oh, yeah. Of course.

Hey, um, listen.

I really appreciate

the motel room.

It's not really my style

to let the female pay.

And I-I don't want you to think

that I just used you

or-or anything.

- I don't.

- Oh, okay.

That's good.

Um, you want my e-mail?

Take it easy.

Saw your rig.

Ladies night.

Well, I guess

you'll be getting

some discounted drinks then.

Just got paid.

You're going with me.

[ Grunts ]

I can't, Runner.

I just got back.

You know it's a dream

of every man in California...

have an opportunity

to get drunk with you.

I'm not sure that's

a compliment, Runner.

Well, it ain't an insult.

Come on.

[ Sighs ]

It's that

country-western crap?

Seventies night.

Seventies night

at the V.F.W.?

Let me get

my lipstick.

[ Female Singer ]

Oh, baby, you're glowing

Started a fire

Oh, baby, you're burning

Looks like we made

a soul connection

We found a soul connection

To find out

Find out

That what we have

[ Ends ]

This is f***ing great.


a pretty drink.

[ Laughs ]

I'm going to the bathroom.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Country Western ]

[ Door Opens ]

Hey there.

Hey there.

Do-- [ Chuckles ]

Do you know me?

No, I don't you.

Maybe I could though

if I tried real hard.

Yeah. Um--

[ Chuckles ]

Well, I'm Rick.

I'm Runner's


[ Mumbling ]

Oh. Rick.

Yeah, he's mentioned you.

Oh, good.

Hey. Excuse me.


Excuse me.

Yeah, he's married.

Yeah, but we're not

f***ing each other.

So excuse me.

I'd like to avoid

a bladder infection.

Oh, well, did you ever

hear of that term,

"playing with fire"?

Yeah. I think you're

doing it right now.

No. You are.

No. You are.

Move it, shithead.

Don't be

a home wrecker now.

A good one.

Hey, Rick,

how's it going?

Well, not as good as you.

Go home, Rick.

You're a lucky guy, Runner.

You're a real f***ing

lucky guy.

[ Radio:

What the f*** do you

have this thing set for?


That's Christian rock.

You caught me listening

to Christian rock?


It's soft rock.

Have you ever

heard of F.M.?

- There's a difference.

- Oh, my God.

What is this? This is reggae.
