- You fancy him.

I don't think so.


The three of us are going to be

stuck in a car together for three weeks,

and it'll be trying enough without

"is it me, or is he being weird today?"

Lt'd drive me barmy.

Yeah. You're right.

He is cute, though.

Do you think he's really got

a girlfriend in Sydney?

Why would he lie?

He's a bloke.


I can't believe we're leaving.

I know.

It feels like two years,

not two weeks.

[Horn blaring]

[Male] Whoo!

[Tires screech]

- [Woman] I'd love it.

I thought I requested purple.

Eh. For 1,500 bucks

we're lucky it's got doors.

I love it.

Hey, where's my stuff?

We forgot about food for you. Sorry.

Yeah, we thought you'd get by

on our gratitude and appreciation.

[Laughs sarcastically]

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

Where's the booze?

Oh, we've made a decision.

After last night,

never drinking again.

We've got to get an early start

if we want to get to Wolf Oreek

by tomorrow night.


Piss off. Of course I checked.

[Chuckles] How much

of an organization Nazi is she?

No, she's right. In bed by 9:30.

[All cheering]

[Dance music]

[Woman 1] This is bad, actually.


[Woman 1] You weren't gonna drink that.

Is that your beer?

- Patrick. Pleased to meet you.

- Nice to meet you.

That's a pretty nice handshake there.

Let's give it a kiss.

Lovely, lovely.

- I can pack a punch.

- You can pack a punch?

Why would you want that?

- I would if I had to.

- [Patrick] If you had to? [laughs]

You gotta hear this bullshit story.

Bullshit! It wasn't bullshit!


Ten foot wave sprayin'.

Shh! Shh!

I think it's past 9:30.
