You all right, Frank?

It's gonna be

one hell of a blister.

Well, how does it look?

Not good.

Engine's cooked.

You making the call?


But it would help if I

could get some reception.


You remember what that station attendant

called this stretch of road here?

He called it

Devil's Pass, Frank. Why?


I'm having the best time.

Leslie, pace yourself.

We're just starting out.

I know. We're just starting

and already I feel so great.

Come on.

Here, have it.


Do you want to drive?

Never mind.

Em, slow down, slow down.

Why? What?

Oh, he's so cute.

Can we pick him up?


We are not picking anybody up.


Leslie, don't!

This road is, like,

it's a magnet for serial killers.

You know that?

Oh, my God.


No, I just made it up,

but what would you

have done if he was?

Slit his throat first.

Jesus, Leslie. Did I just

hear you right?

I need a beer.

Oh, come on.

Don't... don't do that!


Hey, chill out.

No need for the drama.

There is no drama.

I am driving.

You want to die? No.

I don't want to die.

No, neither do I. My life is

extremely valuable to me.

And I...

Are you even listening?

Of course I am.

Hey, Jim.

Yeah, it's Leslie.

Yeah, Emily's driving.

Um... I don't...

Hold on. I'll ask.

What was the excuse

you gave, again?

That I was visiting my sister

in Sacramento for a few days.

What else?

Did you get that?

I know.

I cannot believe

she's going through

with this either.

It's like we have

the old Emily back.

Uh, we've got like two bags of weed,

some tequila, some rum,

some gin and two cases of beer?

Yeah, the way you're going,

we're almost out of beer.

Well, see you guys

in a couple of hours.

And will you say

"hey" to Dick for me?

Rick, Dick, whatever. Just tell him

we look forward to seeing him.

Jim? Helloo.

Hello? Hello?

Lost our reception.

Oh! I just want to

get there already!

Who's Dick?

Who's Dick?

Just the guy you're gonna f***.

Excuse me?

Listen, I know that there's

this little complication...

No, Randy is

no complication. OK?

He's my boyfriend.

I feel real shitty about

lying to him about this trip.

What if he finds out?

Who cares?

Payback's a b*tch.

No, there's not

gonna be any payback, Leslie.

I still care for him.

And I'm not just gonna

f*** some stranger

to satisfy my own insecurities.

Why not?

He did.

I guess that's why you're

still wearing the bracelet.

You're so damn trusting, Em.

Because my gut's telling me that

this guy does not deserve you.

You really believe that?

You know what?

Things'll change.

I just...

I have to toughen up

a little. That's all.

Toughen up a lot.

Oh, my God! Stop!

What? What?

Yeah, I think we go left here.

You think?

What does the GPS say?

I don't know.

The stupid thing stopped working hours ago.

This f***ing piece of sh*t.

Come on.

It'll be an adventure

if we're wrong.

F*** it.

Oh, God!


Diesel exhaust is the worst.

Has this guy never heard

of climate change?

Obviously not.

Come on, what's his deal?

Why doesn't he just move over for us?

Come on, a**hole!

We don't have all day!

So what are you waiting for, girl?

Pass him.

It's too risky,

I'll take him at the summit.


We need gas.

Well, good, because

I have to f***ing pee.

That's quite the beast, uh?

Uh, yeah.

Nice car.

Thank you.

Fill 'er up for you?

Ah, yeah. Yes, please.

I'm dyin'

to see what you got under the hood.

Check your oil for you?

Knock yourself out.




It is. Who's this?

It's Emily.

Oh, hey there, Emily.

Sorry, I didn't
