The trunk is red. The car is black.

Lid of the trunk is red.

[mechanic] Yeah, so?

So, I said "nondescript," you know?

It's got a red trunk.


-Yeah, as in non-recognizable,

as in not a black fucking car

with a red fucking trunk.

[mechanic] This is what they paid for.

[man sighs]

-Shocks good?

-[mechanic] Yeah.


-Yep, struts, brakes, suspension...

[man on recording] Hey, this is Clay.

Leave me a message. I'll call you.

-[signal beeps]

-Clay, I don't wanna leave you a message.

I'm on my way to work.

I should only take 30 minutes or so,

and then I'm gonna go to the party,

but I got no parking instructions, bro.

Nobody called me about parking.

Clay, pick up the phone.

Call me back, come on.

[phone beeps]

Hey, Kate, what's going on?

I'm working, sweetheart.

[Kate] Dad, I'm going

to the Phoenix tonight,

- so I'll be home at, like, 1:00 or 2:00.

00 or 2:00?


-What's the Phoenix?

-It's a place.

-Yeah? What kind of place?

[Kate] A music place, like live music.

Oh, like live music?

Wow, that sounds fun. Who's driving?

[Kate] Dad, I'm not calling to ask you.

I'm calling to tell you, as a courtesy.


Sweetheart, you're 13 years old.

13. You are calling to ask me.

Well, you don't have to go.

You can stay home. Your choice.

[Kate] I think Audrey's driving.

But maybe Ryan.

-No Ryan.


We're not going through this again.

You screwed up with Ryan last time.

[Kate] That's so unfair. You can't make me

stay home on a Friday night.

It's not up for discussion, Kate.

I can't talk. I'm busy. I gotta work.

I'm just gonna go anyways.

Don't leave the apartment

or you're grounded for life.

-Do you hear me?

-I'm going anyways.

-Don't leave the--

-I'm going anyways!

[passenger] Red trunk?

[passenger] I mean, I'm not questioning.

You must be a good driver.

It's just I've never seen anyone

drive a stick on a job before.

Yeah, it's always automatics.

Column shifters or whatever.

Wanna hear something funny? My girlfriend

thinks I'm too old to rock a hawk.

So, you know what I did?

I just grabbed a pair of her clippers.

I just zinged this right-- voop--

right off, like that.

The last couple of weeks...

[rustles] ever since.

What's your name, man?

[driver] I don't wanna talk.


Chitchat. I don't chitchat

unless it's about the job.

-Talk about the job?


You know, "get in," "look out,"

"watch for the cops."

-That kind of shit.

-Cop? Cop? Where is he?

Where is he?


I'm just playing.

What's in the bag?

[driver] Sit back.

-What's that?

-Sit back.

-What is it?

-Sit back.

-I will.

-Just sit the f*ck back. It's my lunch.

-Your lunch?

-Yeah, my lunch.

[mohawk man chuckles]

[driver] I don't know how long

I'm gonna be out here tonight,

so I brought my lunch.

Oh, so you think
