Hey, guys, she's all ours... nice and legal.

It's all right. It's all right.

Are you ok?

All right.

I would have won.

You had to cheat to beat me... force me off the road.

That ain't racin'.

That's trying to murder someone.

You lost, guy. What can I say?

Now take your girl and walk.

I think you'll find it safer that way.

You're nothing but road pirates.

You got to cheat to win.

Let's go, George.

Skate pal, while you still got your lips Gang: Yeah, George. Bye, George.

Bye, George! Bye, Georgie!

All right, let's hook up the Daytona and get the hell out of here.

[Engine revving]

Hey, is this the way to Crawford dam?

Uh-huh. It's... it's a little ways up.

And then you take the willow river cut-off.


Hey, wait!

Uh, are you new in town?


I, uh...

Um... Hey, I'll show you the way.

Hop on.


I'm Jake kesey.

I'm keri Johnson.

Oh, great.

[Engine revs]

I can't ride. Boyfriend?

No way.

Man: Keri.

Get in.

Who's the kid?

I was just walking out of my house.

Turned my back, and the next second he was there.

Like magic almost.


Yeah, really.

Seemed familiar to me.

What did he want?


He's new in town.

You know you can get killed riding on the back of bikes, keri.

Excuse me?

You're mine.

And I'll do anything necessary to keep it that way.

[Indistinct chatter]

You think you own me... that somehow I'm your private property.

You are. Nobody loves you as much as I do.

It's because everybody's scared of you.

If you're not going to be my girl, you're not going to be anybody's.

Minty, give me a light.

Here you go!

Hey, bro.

Man, it's a hot one today, huh?

Look, do you mind if I lay my towel here?

I ain't welcome over there.

Why ain't I welcome? Or it's ok to lay here?

Take your pick.

Hey, you new in town or something?

Got a name?


Jake, I'm Billy hankins.

I work over at big kay's slinging burgers.

Listen, you ever need a burger in Brooks, you call me, ok?

Man, she's beautiful, don't you think?

Me and her are pretty good friends.

Well, actually she's... she used to be tight with my brother.

She's got real problems with that lunatic she's with there now.

What kind of problems?

Well, packard's a mistake of nature... a genetic misfire.

He's what?

Packard gets crazy jealous if anybody even looks at keri cross-eyed.

You got to wear dark glasses so he doesn't catch you at it.

That includes your brother, I assume, right?

My brother jaime?

The guy you were just talking about.

He's dead.

He was murdered up on the willow river.

But nobody ever knew who did it.

I'm sorry, man. I had no idea.

It's ok, bro.



[Girl screaming]


[Smokin' in the boys room by motley crue playing]

Look at all these girls.

Laying around on the rocks, they hardly got any clothes on.

Jesus, boy!

This shit's got some kick.

[Car horn blares]

Lot of duck butter out at the lake today, eh, pack.

Quiff city, here I come!

See that guy over there?

The one with Billy hankins?

What about him?

Looks like a dork to me.

Lot of dorks going around these days.

Whole... whole town is seething with them.

They're crawling out of the woodwork.

Shut up. Ok.

Drives that motorbike over there.

You see him or Billy around keri, Oh, shit, pack, I'd rather be working on the car... we do things my way, skank, and it's a lot of fun.

I know that's easy for you to forget with your brain turning to mush and all.

Actually, my brain's functioning a-ok, dude. so let's just do things my way, huh?

Before I have to cut another ringhole in this flap you call your ear.

Hey, we'll remind the cock-stacker.

We'll use our influence, hey, gut?

We'll use our influence.

Remember, the kid on the bike.

You got it, pack.

It's all programmed in, man.


And, skank...

Do me a favor, will you?

Get rid of that zombie piss you're drinking before it turns you into a mushroom.

No problem.

Yeah, right.

Ah, damn.


It's a nice day, huh?

This water's a bit chilly for my taste.

Good thing it's warm out.

Sorry about the ride this morning.

It's ok.

Billy hankins a friend of yours?

Yeah, sort of.


I'd better go now.

Don't go because of me.

Not because of you.

It's because of him.

You don't know him.


You know, if you want to come by some night...


I mean after work.

I'll be there.

Well, so will I then.

The thing is, where's work?

Heh! Big kay's burgers.

Big kay's burgers? Yeah.

All right. Ok.

[Addicted to love by Robert Palmer plays]

Hey, it's the fumes off the grill, keri.

It hurts my mind.

[Engine cranking]

Ah, come on!

Oh, God, it's him. Hurry up.

I'm tryin'. Tryin'!

Hurry up! Uhh!

Oh, man.

Hello, keri.

Looks like I got here just in time.


In the car.

I mean now.

Hey, listen, pack, I was just on my way out, too.

Hold your horses, guy.

Packard, please.

Just get in the car for a minute.

I just want to speak to Billy alone.

Help her out.

So what happened here?

Looks to me like you ran out of those all-beef patties kind of early today, huh?

Hey, don't worry, pack.

We still got plenty of dog food.

Hey, packard, let's grind up some meat, huh? or is he just a naturally gifted child?

I swear to God. I'll rip your head off Hold your water, oggie. This is business.

Nothing personal, guy.

That's a nice car you have here.

Now where were you going with my girl?

I was just giving her a ride home, man.

Give me a break.

Hey, rughead...

What's this triumph worth?

You're not getting it, packard!

You're not taking it.

Who said anything about taking it?

I didn't say nothing.

I know I didn't.

I tell you what.

I'm going to give you the same chance I give everybody else.

We're gonna race for it.

Look, pack, you don't get my car. you're not going to get your burgers with the Mayo and thousand island the way you love 'em.


Billy, I thought you understood me.

This isn't a negotiation.

[Tires squealing]


You ever seen one of those before?

Nah, let's just at it to our collection first.

We can figure out what it is second. we'll continue this discussion later, and I'll enjoy it.

I'll see you later, eh, faggot?

Hey, packard, I think he's going to Sandy bar.

Let me take him this time!

All right, it's your turn, dude.

Let's go! All right!

All right, I want you to tear this guy a new asshole.

Do it to him oggie-style.

I'll burn this iranian.

Ok, the first to rattler's crossing wins!

You lose the race, you lose your car.


Stay on your side of the road, man.

Ok, let's get it on!

Send them off!

Say what?

I said send them off!

Take the willow river cut-off.





[Police radio chatter]

Man: Uh, Roger that, Murphy.

Paramedics have been notified, they are on their way.

Officer: You think he made it?

Second officer: You gotta be kidding me.

Local kid?

Call the meat wagon, then get a hold of loomis, tell him we got a possible d.O.A. Up here.

Loomis, we got a snuffed kid up here at muletail coulee. It's oggie fisher.

Radio: Uh, Roger that, this is Stokes, Murphy.

We, uh, just saw a paramedic down at the cut-off...

I've been waiting to catch you guys in the act.

I've been waiting and watching.


You caught us talking.

There's no law against that, is there, officer?

Unless, of course, I got my wires crossed and you caught us speaking without a per... clam it, wise guy!

There's a dead kid 3 Miles up the highway.


Yeah, that's right. Dead.

Run off the highway and killed.

Ok, pal.

Time to drain the drug overdose sloshing above your eyebrows and tell me who the dude was driving that other car.

With all due respect, sir...

If you're putting us under arrest, I do believe we have right to counsel.

What about you, maggot, huh?

You got anything to say, or are your veins bloated with brain eradicator, too?

Yeah, well, who got killed?

Oggie fisher.

And there isn't enough left of him Man: Hey, loomis, I think you ought to see this!

Oh, Murphy, what for?

I think you should see this.

Oh, that's ugly.

Kid ought to be dog meat.

Wait a minute.

Yeah, loomis, this kid smashed down a canyon through fire and bustin' glass.

Must have been 1,000 degrees in that car.

Uh-huh. At least.

Where's his eyes?

Sent cats climbing up my spine when I saw them hauling this corpse out of that canyon.

Clean, as if he come out of a hot tub.

I'm worried, loomis. Something ain't right.


Get him into town and box him up.

I've still got a few rocks to turn over up here.

All right, load him up.


You don't even want to know what I just saw, asswipe.

Now spill it. Who was driving that other car?

Nobody ever saw it before.

Wasn't a local car. It was... it was customized or something.

Yeah, it was like a v-dub conversion and a surf-rack on top. Oh, it was awesome, man.

Well, no one seems to be too broken up about Mr. fisher laying there, splayed out to 4 points of the compass.

But, then again, maybe that's what things have come down to, huh?

Deputy halifax over there is gonna take down a list of names for me, so if any of you guys are planning on taking a vacation in the next few days, you can just forget it.

I'll be visiting you again with warrants, Mr. attorney.

Ok, halifax, they're all yours.

Oggie fisher.

They got us all. Let's cruise.

Yo, gutterboy!

What, skank?

Let's jam.

Yo, rugs.

That kid in the Daytona gave me a hell of a run last night.

If I hadn't tried to kill him, When's the new injection plant going to be ready?

Tonight, maybe? Maybe tomorrow.

The digital radio killers, they're almost ready, too.

Good. The sooner the better.

Things are getting a little too equal these days.

Sure, packard.

Hey. Hey!

What seems to be the problem?

I just can't believe that oggie's dead.

I mean, he lived just up the street from me.

I just can't believe it.

Oggie's no loss, believe me.

Now, tell me something.

What were you doing with Billy hankins today?

I was tired. I decided to go home.

Don't lie to me.

I love you too much for you to lie.

I'm not lying, packard.

You and me...

We're like blood brothers.

I guess you could call us blood lovers...

Because that's how much I love you.

And when you love someone as much as I love you, after a while, you feel nothing.

And when you feel nothing, you can do anything.

I don't love you.

I've never made love to you.

I never will.

You will.

Hey, rug. How we doing on the digital radio killer?

It's tits, man.

It's totally functional.

Yeah, what about the injection plant?

Oh, it's ready.

It's ready? it'll blow away anything this side of the Mississippi.

Good. Now all we have to do is fit it in the 'vette.

I can fit this thing in a go cart, what are you worried about?

[Rock music playing]

When this thing gonna be chopped?

Tomorrow morn... morning.


You got that, gutterboy?

Yeah, ok.

What about those, uh... yeah, packard, I got those elbow parts sold to the nagoles boys for 2,900 bucks.

Yeah, that old guy was pretty pissed off.

Look, guy...

Loomis is out there looking to bust everyone.

I mean, losing oggie ain't no big deal, and that's a hell of a car you got there.

Buddy, I'd put that kidney Buster down This place is filled with ether and acetylene, dig?

No! Hey!

I don't know what your problem is, guy, but... hey!

I'm out of here!


Keep going, man!

Holy shit!


Where'd he go?

Skank, you pussy!

Skank! Yeah?

Who is that guy?

But whoever he was, he's weird and pissed off.


Red? Yeah?

Loomis here.

Hey, loomis.

This is a real strange place you got here.

Really unique in its depressing qualities, huh?

What do you need? [Spits] Bingo.

You got a couple of cockroaches working here.

I need a word with them.

My nephew skank and his pal gutterboy? Over there.


Cleared for take off.


Morning, fellas.

Yo, skank!

This is a nice place you got out here.

Skank, a little help here?

Been working here long?

Man, I smell a cop!

Do you smell a cop?

I smell French fries, skank.

But that don't make no sense, huh?

Bud, you got a warrant?

I don't need a warrant when I have this badge.

But we know our constipational rights, sir.

You can't just come in here and... oh, wow! [Whimpering]

I got this problem, fellas.

Oggie fisher, your buddy who got greased?

I want to know who was driving the car that ran him into kingdome come.

Nobody's seen that guy before, it's... you hit me in the head again, skank.

I'm telling ya... ok.

I can't remember dog squeeze when it comes to getting run off of roads there, loomis.

I can see why, skank.

I can call you skank, can't I?

Yeah, unless you like Maurice better.

[Both laugh]


Well, you listen good, skank.

I know it's gonna be hard with your melon on chemical overload.

But there's a killer out there, and I'm gonna track the hair ball down, so when you 2 craterheads get finished mining for nose gold, and you get a relapse of memory, you let me know, huh?

I'm just a phone call away.

We ain't got no telephone, skank.

A little hydropump?

He's heading toward the park, skank.

Yeah? What do you say we run this little bastard down and make his teeth bleed, eh?

What about the girl, skank? just grab the shotgun, mama Luka!

I don't know nothin' 'bout no shotgun!

Just grab the God damn gun, man.

Gun? Oh, skank!

I won't mess with the shotgun.

Grab it!

Load it, man! Load it!

What are you doing?

Where's the bullets?

Where are the bullets?

I got the bullets!

Well, load it, man!

Shoot his tires out, fool!

Pull the trigger with your finger, God damn it!

Pull it!

Nice shot!

You blew the God damn steering out!

Thanks, gutterboy.

Kiss your ass good-bye.


Oh, shit!

I... I tried to warn you, skank.

I said, "do we have to drive so fast?

And use a gun?"

I can't shoot no gun!

Shut up, gutterboy!


I gotta think, man!





It's what I do best.

That's right, skanko.

That's what you do best.

Packard told us to keep an eye on his girl.

Jesus, this shit's got some kick.

Well, we almost killed his girl!

We're dead meat now, skank!

You listen to me.

Now, she's never gonna fink, man.

The bitch was with that dork, and she's as scared of packard as anybody.

You hear me?

Now, we done what we was told.

Too bad about the 'cuda, skank.

It was a tits car.

Loomis, what the hell are you doing here?

You got a minute?

You gotta be out of your mind, barging in here like this.

I got this problem...


I'm not going anywhere, guy.

On your feet, buddy, now!

I couldn't sleep at all last night.

I had strange dreams.

What kind of dreams?

I dreamed that the man in the moon was laughing at me.

He tends to laugh all the time.

Did you ever notice that?

Then I was headed east on the back of a motorcycle, and the driver was Jamie Hankins.

What's strange is that Jamie's dead.

Yeah, I know. Billy told me.

You know, Jamie was a lot like you.

That could account for the dream, I guess.

I like you.



Oh, no!


I love you.

Sheriff's office.

It's Murphy. He's at home.

Loomis: Tell him I'll call him back.

He'll call you right back.

Ain't you got any air in this joint?

And your friend minty?

Well, he was maggot pie before the car exploded.

Excuse me.

Um, is it true that his eyeballs was all sucked out of his sockets and everything?


It was just like oggie, not a mark on him.

We pulled the poor bastard from the fire cold in his own sauce.

Almost gives me the willies just talking about it.


So, before I nail you bastards to the wall, I'm gonna give you a chance to cooperate.

We'll do anything.

Packard: Hey!

Shut up!

Look, loomis, we ain't done nothing illegal except maybe bust a speed limit, so why don't you give us all a break and let us get the hell out of here?

You listen to me, you son of a bitch, there's a kid out there using his car to kill people, not that it's such a big deal since it seems to be your gang he's got it in for.

So, if you guys try to take the law into your own hands, and that killer turns up dead, I'm gonna see you all sniffing cyanide...

In the Arizona gas chamber.

Do you read?


Here we are.

I'll stop by and pick you up later.

Ok. today was the nicest day I've had in a long time.

I thought so, too.

I'll see you.

You going on a vacation I'm taking my blueprints, and I'm leaving!

Yeah, what for?

This gang thing was ok when we had the edge, but now that there's that wraith out there that killed oggie... a what out there, man?

A wraith, man! A ghost!

An evil spirit, and it ain't cool!

I don't know, except I'm quitting.

And if I was you guys, I'd quit, too.

Well, I ain't got no beef Yeah, he's just a damn kid, man!

Packard said so.

Rughead: I'm leaving!

Too bad!

Slosh this pig with 15, bud.

Let's go cruise.

Scare up some poozle some place.

You got it, skanko, 'cause I'm a 4-day virgin.

Rughead must have forgot something.

[Both screaming]



Kind of a mess now, don't you think?

The gutterboy and skank...

They were... they were right there.

And it's like they vaporized!

They were adiosed by the kid in the turbo.

I warned 'em!

I warned 'em!

What are you trying to say, boy?


That skank and gutterboy were in there when the place blew.


I know it seems impossible.

I didn't know they had a kid in the car.

I didn't know it was Jamie hankins till he came up missing.

So, what you're telling me is that packard and the others killed Jamie hankins?

Jamie hankins was here the other night with a shotgun!

A dead kid with a shotgun?

I seen his eyes, loomis.

I seen his eyes...

And I got a real bad feeling.

Bad feelings don't add up to resurrections, buddy.


If it was Jamie hankins, why'd they kill him off in the first place?

I've been too scared to say nothin'.

Packard hated Jamie.

Packard hates everybody. He hates me.

I don't wanna get killed over something I had nothing to do with.

Not now.


You go on home now and...

You stay there till you hear from me, eh?

Girl: Hey, Billy.

Ok, I want 2 dogs.

I want 3, uh, onion rings.

Yeah, 3 orders of onion rings, and 2 hamburgers, no cheese.

And 2 malteds, vanilla and chocolate, ok?

How you doing, kid?

I'm officer loomis.

Can I have a word with you?

What do you need? I'm swamped.

I need some information...

About your brother.

That's easy. He's dead.

Order up!

Yeah, I know.

But, um... and now I've got 4 dead kids in one week.


I thought it was 2.

Skank and gutterboy got lunched out at the warehouse.

[Clicks tongue]

I figure packard Walsh is next.

I'll shake the hand of the guys who does it.

Order up!

It might be, um...


Did your, uh...

Brother have a girl?

Well, the night he was killed, he was with keri Johnson.

Somebody busted in and smashed her head.

She woke up the next day on a deserted highway somewhere wrapped in a navajo blanket.

Does she have any idea who did it?

Uh, drifters maybe?

Maybe smugglers?

Maybe packard Walsh?

Who knows?

She never knew who did it, or she would have said so.

Keri Johnson, huh?

I need some more relish over here.


Order up.

Hey, uh, officer?

What's my brother have to do with 4 dead guys?

I mean, what's the connection?

That's what I'm gonna find out.

Now just is not the time to confront packard.

Well, if you don't say something soon, you're gonna be his prisoner for a long time.

Who are you?

Ask packard.


He knows why I'm here.

See, I've come a long ways for you.

My time is just about over.

[Engine revs]

Got an order up for Gabrielle.

There you go.

Here you go. Anything else?

Yeah, could I have a...

I can't talk now, packard. the past couple of days. You've been real busy.

Would you get out of here? I have to work.


What are you doing?

Packard, stop it!

What are you doing?

Stop it!

Packard, what the hell are you doing, man?

You'll wind up dead like your brother.





[Engine starts]


[Tires squeal]

You bastard chickenshits!

You let him take her!

So where are we going?

Somewhere no one will ever find us.

Where's that, packard?



To Santa Barbara or some place like that.

I'm not going.

Yes, you are, keri.

Remember that night when you guys found me with Jamie henkins?

I don't know what you're talking about.

Well, think. and we had just finished doing it.


So it was you.


I was always with Jamie.

I never made any promises to you.

You're mine, that's it.

You think I'd go to California with you?

I'd rather go to Nogales, have the gutterboy's cretin children, and die than to be with you.

You better shut up now, keri, yeah, you can kill me, too, packard, but you can never make me love you.

Packard, you're pathetic.

You wanna race? 'Cause I'll show you a race!

We'll finish this later.

[Tires squealing]

[Tires squealing]

[Tires squealing]

We got 'em, loomis. We're in pursuit, over.

All units, we're on diamondback. request all addition units in the vicinity.

We have a suspect heading westbound on Ridge road.

Man: Dispatch, we're in high-speed pursuit of silver corvette, red trim and that black turbo.

Uh, Roger, unit 64, give us your location again. Go ahead.

Come in, loomis.

North on diamondback road.

Uh, Roger that, 16. North on diamondback.

[Motor revs]

[Truck horn honks]

Oh, shit!



My God.

Just like all the others.

Loomis, there's only one body here.

Cover him up.

You want us to set up a new road block?

We could still catch the bugger.

Got guys waiting... forget it, Murphy.

Roadblocks won't stop something that can't be stopped.

Loomis, what are you saying?

I'm saying it's over.

There's nobody left in packard's gang to kill.

Let's clean this mess up and get the hell out of here.

[Engine stops]




I can't do that again.


You know who I am.


It's as close as I could come to who I once was.

It's close enough.

Just think of this as a second chance.

We were meant to be together, keri.

Look, I got one more thing to do.

Don't leave me again.

Don't worry. I'll be back.

It's a short trip.

Pack light.

[Engine revs]

Come on, packard!


You scared me, man!

I'm sorry, man.

It's been a heavy day already.

I can see that.

It's time for me to hit the road.

My business here is finished.

Before I do, I want you to have something.

She's yours now.

Who's mine?

It's outside.

Turbo interceptor.

The only one in existence.

Does very special things.

Take care of it, will you?

Who are you, bro?

You said it, Billy.

I gotta go.

Hey, man, wait a minute!

Where you going? Where you going?!

The instructions are in the glove compartment!

Wait a minute!

Come back!

Come back, bro!


Ha ha!


Hey, man, far out.

Hey, Jake! Who are you?

It couldn't have been.
