Come on. Come on!

Hey! Hey!

What an idiot.




Maybe we can go to counseling or something.

You just don't get it, do you?

I don't want to be your wife anymore.

I want to be me for a while.

I'm not stopping you from being you.

Yeah, as long as being me means being Mrs. Hank Miller.

Not anymore.

It'll be a fresh start for the both of us.

I don't want a fresh start.

(male voice) Pick her up.


What are you doing? You're not picking her up.


What's wrong with you people?

Should have picked her up.

Remember the day we first met

a day that I will never forget

(male voice) Pick her up.

Hey, get in.

Where are you going?

It doesn't matter. Just get in.


You're lucky I came along when I did.

This storm's getting crazy.

So how long have you been out there?

All day.

That's terrible. I'm sorry.

My name's Melissa.

I'm Kayla.

You're not from around here, are you?

Not really.

Running away?

So that either means yes or mind your own business.

Which is it?

I'm just passing through.

Well, there's a lot to pass through here.

I noticed.

Where are you headed?


Where's that?

Up north.

My boyfriend is a mining engineer.

I'm paying him a surprise visit.


Where are you headed?


Good one, Kayla.

Huh, now there's a guy with a sense of humor.

What do you say we stop and get you a bite to eat?

Let's just keep going, if you don't mind.

Oh no.

No, you've got to be kidding me.

This is just great.

I'm afraid you're going to have to turn back, sir.

The road's out until further notice.

The detour told me to go this way.

It's not like we plan these things.

Any idea how long it'll be before they open the road?

Not until some bureaucrat in the state highway administration

gives it the all clear.


What's the problem, officer?

Road's out, sir.

It's out?

We've got a flash flood warning.

It's dangerous at the moment.


Thanks for bringing me out here.

It's not my fault.

What's going on?

That's the guy that almost ran me down.


You know what this means?

I've got to go all the way back to the interstate,

all the way up to Silverton, back down again,

that's just 20 miles from here.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hey, aren't you Crusher Cruchetti?

If I say yes, will you let me through?

Does anyone have a working cell?

No, mine broke when you almost ran me over.

That was an accident.

Sorry about not picking you up,

but my wife gets kind of nervous about picking up hitch hikers.

Oh, no problem.

I had hours before I would have died from exposure.

I think they have a phone back at that diner.

What diner?

That diner a couple miles back.

There hasn't been a building on this road

for the last 50 miles.

It was called Last Chance Diner.

Last Chance Diner. Now that's rich.

Do you remember seeing a diner?

Sorry to contradict, but I do believe that diner's closed.

It looked open to me.

So there is a diner.

There was a diner.

Hey, you guys can do whatever you want,

but I'm going to go back and check it out, okay?

Let's go.

Tell that guy at the diner Officer DeVille sent you.


Anybody home?



Please, have a seat anywhere.

The state trooper down the road said you guys were closed.

Yeah, he's been trying to keep people

away from me for years.

It's a personal thing.

Would you like some water?


You got a phone?

Do you have any coffee?

I'm sorry.

All I serve here is water.

You have got to be kidding me.

This tastes great.

It's my own recipe.

Two molecules of hydrogen and one of oxygen.

Your phone's dead.
