Who won’t care? Boy, you’re talk’n crazy stuff here. Listen, I just planted a bomb on the roof of this building. We’ve got about twenty minutes before the roof blows off this place. I’ve got to get out of this elevator.

    TEENAGER
Wow! You expect me to believe that story? Listen, get on that phone and tell what’s his name to call the news people. I want Eyewitness News here. I’ve got a statement to make about the whales.

    TIM
You got no time for a statement boy. This building is going to blow up!

    TEENAGER
Just do it man, before I press the button and we both find out about the life beyond.

(Tim picks up the phone)

Listen, Bob, we’ve got ourselves a situation here. Seems there’s this kid, and..(to Teenager) will you at least lower that junk?....this kid that’s hell bent on blowing himself up here in the elevator. No, I’m not kidding. Now he wants some eyewitnessing news here...I know that’s not a good idea....you’re telling me we don’t have time for this???...What do you mean martyr? Hell, no, I don’t wanna be no martyr for no cause! Cause, that’s why, you come up here and be a martyr and I’ll come down there...Hey, man...who’s the brains in this operation? Bob? Bob?....please say you’re still there, Bob????
(He hangs up the phone.)

Listen, it’s 11:59. I tell you at fifteen past midnight this here government building is going to be blown sky high.

    TEENAGER
Jesus, I had to pick some god dam redneck who maybe got to the third grade.
This is not a government building and cut the crap about the bomb. I don’t buy it. Get it? I’m the one who’s got the bomb and I might just press this little button if you get on my nerves much more.
