INT. VAN - NIGHT

The highway is gridlocked and frozen. Francis and Raquel find themselves stuck in their car without access to an exit ramp. Francis lights a joint.

RAQUEL

Hungry?

FRANCIS

Soon. McDonalds?

Raquel takes the joint from between Francis' lips.

RAQUEL

Is this saliva? You know what I hate about Mickey dee's? Their stupid plastic cup lids.

FRANCIS

Hey! Of course.

RAQUEL

Roll up your window.

FRANCIS

Why?

RAQUEL

Cops?

FRANCIS

How-huh? They first gotta zig-zag thru this mess, smell smoke, and spot this perfectly rolled spliff disguised as a cigarette.

RAQUEL

What if they're undercover?

FRANCIS

Ugh, we ain't gonna find a McDonalds for at least an hour.

2.

Francis digs around behind his seat to retrieve a thermos coffee cup.

Upon finding a cup, he brandishes it contently.

FRANSIC (CONT'D)

Got my coffee mug.

Francis and Raquel swap items, after Raquel takes a long, coughing instigating toke.

RAQUEL

cool! Is it a thermos? (BEAT) it is.

(READING LABEL OFF MUG)

Insulated.

FRANCIS

It's leak proof, check the lid.

RAQUEL

Uh-huh. Look, is that trucker waving at us?
Hah! There's a trucker asking for a hit.

Francis struggles to see his blind-spot. He sticks half his body out the window, placing the gear in park. Waves, brings the spliff to his lip, exhales and checks for police before gesturing the joint to the trucker.

CUT TO:


EXT. HIGHWAY - CONTINUOUS

Francis gets out of his car after rendering the area safe.

FRANCIS

Do you happen to have a porta-potty in there?

The trucker reaches for the joint.

TRUCKER

A what now!!?

FRANCIS

A toilet. We were headed to McDonalds before we ended up blocked in.

TRUCKER

Are you a cop?

3.

FRANCIS

Dude. ~

The trucker opens his door and starts climbing down his truck explaining to Francis how the driver's seat works. He then allows Francis into his big rig and shuts the door.

CUT TO:

INT. VAN - CONTINUOUS

TRUCKER taps on the passenger side window. Raquel is already high as she cracks the window.

Raquel takes the joint from the trucker and moves to open the side-door to invite him in.

Traffic inches forward for the lane the white van presently occupies.

TRUCKER

Thanks. Heard there's a party in here.

RAQUEL

Where's Francis?

TRUCKER

He's taking care of business. Traffic's moving.

Raquel climbs into the driver's seat intending to merge closer to the exit lane by benefiting from the trucker's absence in his rig.

TRUCKER (CONT'D)

Are you okay to drive.

Raquel hands the trucker the joint as she signals a lane change.

CUT TO:

EXT. JACK-N-THE-BOX DRIVE THRU WINDOW - LATER

FRANCIS

Can I get my coffee order poured in my own cup?

SALES CLERK

No. But you can pour your coffee from the cup we give you into your own cup.
