An excerpt …
(It began as a casual chat.)
NEVIN: My mom … she still worries about me. “You go up that much, some day you’re gonna come down.” I say, “Mom, I gotta come down. That’s how planes work.”
PARK: (smiling) Yeah.
NEVIN: She’s getting older. Lives alone. Nothing to do but worry.
PARK: Too bad.
NEVIN: Oh, she’s okay. I kid with her.
PARK: How long’s she been divorced?
NEVIN: Oh, about … How’d you know she’d divorced?
PARK: Uh … guessed. Is she?
NEVIN: Yeah. Yeah. Divorced. Almost twelve years now.
(Another strange happening.)
NEVIN: (grabs his leg) Oh man … that leg.
PARK: Still got the cramp?
NEVIN: Yeah, I … How’d you know my legs cramp?
PARK: You just grabbed it.
NEVIN: But how’d you know it was a cramp?
PARK: Uh … a guess? Is it?
NEVIN: Yeah … it’s ... uh ... it’s a cramp. Can’t stand up, though. Seatbelt light’s still on. I hope they bring us something to drink. I’m parched. I think I’ve got an Australian beach in my throat. (laughs)
PARK: You like Australia?
NEVIN: Yeah … not like I saw much of it. Nice place. Great hotel.
PARK: Yeah, the Starwood’s nice.
NEVIN: (a long pause) Wait a minute. Wait just a dog-gonned minute. How’d you know I stayed at the Starwood?
PARK: Uh …
(see. It’s the International Dateline)
NEVIN: (a pause, then) Hold on a minute! (pulls Park up to sitting) How can you meet me tomorrow when tomorrow hasn’t happened yet?
PARK: I told you. It’s the International dateline. It was Monday for me going that way, but it was still Sunday for you coming this way. I met you tomorrow.
NEVIN: Then I haven’t met you yet.
PARK: Don't worry. You will tomorrow. (goes back to his sleeping position)
NEVIN: (a long pause, then) No way! (again pulls park up to a sitting position) That’s not possible!
(The scheme to make a fortune has a slight problem.)
NEVIN: Tell me! Tell me! What news could you possibly give me that could ruin our plans to become rich?
PARK: You sure you want to hear it?
NEVIN: Am I sure? I’m begging you, man! I’m demanding!
PARK: Okay! Just settle down! Settle down! (Nevin sits) Your plane … the plane back to L.A.?
PARK: It didn’t make it. Went down somewhere near New Guinea.
PARK: Sorry about that.
