Dialogue:

Jim: What’s wrong with you? Have you got a death wish or something?

Richard: What do you mean? What’s the matter? You’re freaking me out!

Jim: You’re driving at top speed! The car’s engine is gonna blow up. Slow down for heave’s sake! I don’t want to die prematurely.

Richard: Come on! You want me to ride at snail’s pace!
Don’t panic; you’re in good hands. All I’m trying to do is to catch the party on time.

Jim: You’re still picking up speed! I’d be out of my mind if I stayed a minute in this car. Stop the car; stop it. Pull over right away.
