An excerpt …

(It seemed an easy car adjustment.)

QUINN: Ah! It does. It truly does … everything needs adjusting.

SIDNEY: I’ve, uh … I’ve never seen this department before. I’ve been to the brake adjustment place and the wheel adjustment. Is this new?

QUINN: Yes, yes. And already it’s our most popular adjustment department.

SIDNEY: No kidding. What do you do here?

QUINN: Attitude.

SIDNEY: Excuse me?

QUINN: Attitude adjustment. We adjust your attitude.

(The brake repair is very expensive.)

SIDNEY: (sitting) But did you see what it’s going to cost to adjust my brakes?

QUINN: Work with me, okay? (sits beside Sidney) You have kids?

SIDNEY: Two. Oscar and Mabel.

QUINN: Ah … great names. I’ll bet they’re pretty special to you.

SIDNEY: You kidding? They’re my whole life!

QUINN: Let’s say you’re approaching a train crossing …

SIDNEY: What’s this got to do with …

QUINN: Work with me. Work with me, Sidney. As you approach the crossing with little Oscar and Margaret …

SIDNEY: Mabel.

(Other repairs are also costly.)

QUINN: You’re just heading down Pike’s Peak after a wonderful day of playing in the snow, drinking hot chocolate, and taking a thousand pictures you’ll never look at. (nudges Riley)

RILEY: Click. Click.

QUINN: Digital.

RILEY: Zpp … zpp.

SIDNEY: The time of our lives!

QUINN: You’re driving down the mountain when you hear a noise!

RILEY: Clank.

QUINN: It’s the transmission!
