Texas. Where 85 is a speed limit. INT. KEVIN'S HOME OFFICE - DAY

Kevin and Max are in Kevin's home office -- a geek-cool paradise built into Kevin's garage, filled with lightsabers, Star Trek paraphernalia, and comfy spots to sit with laptops. Kevin and Max are sitting in plush chairs, each with his own laptop. Important things are being typed.

MAX

Hey, you want to drive up to try out that new 85 mile-per-hour tollway this weekend?

KEVIN

(looks up, arches eyebrow)

Where is it?

MAX

South of Austin, between I10 and Seguin.

KEVIN

That's three hours from here.

MAX

Yeah, give or take.

KEVIN

(dubious)

I dunno. That sounds like quite a drive ... To go for a drive.

MAX

True, but think about ...

KEVIN

And it's not like we wouldn't drive 90 to get there. On a road we don't have to pay to use. I'm not seeing the upside here.

MAX

I sense you do not wish to participate.
