Conference Call in The Dark (Shine Me A Light)
Scene: Pitch black of car carrier, en route to Virginia. Ringing iPhone. Shakey pictures ringtone. Scares LV to death, out of a sound sleep.
LV: (searching for phone in the dark) Jesus H. Christ Almighty! I almost went off the road. Wait. I'm not driving. God I just hate it when I'm not the one driving. This is weird. Who IS driving, and where is my phone?! Ah. Here. Hello?
Tommy Junior: Yo.
LV: Hi TJ!
Tommy Junior: LV! Where are you? We've been waiting for you!
LV: I'm on my way. Waiting for me?! I was waiting for you.
Tommy Junior: Waiting for us?
LV: Well, yes, I wasn't going to just show up.
Tommy Junior: Huh?
LV: This is getting confusing.
Tommy Senior: (picks up other phone) Hi LV!
Tommy Senior: I think what LV means is that she was waiting for us to invite her, Junior.
LV: Yes! I have been dying to hang out with you guys again, but I didn't want to just pop in.
Tommy Junior: Why not?
LV: Well, first of all, there's some serious security around you guys, so I couldn't exactly just drive on through, but also it's really poor form and . . .
Tommy Senior: Ah. Junior, LV is a lady. She's old school. She needed to be asked.
Tommy Junior: (rolls headlights)
LV: Well, it's not just that, Tommy. Uh, guys? Remember, I live in NYW. Nobody shows up there without an official invitation. It just isn't done. It's how I'm wired. You understand.
Tommy Junior: NYW?
Tommy Senior: Neil Young World.
Tommy Junior: Oh.
Tommy Junior: You know what LV?
Tommy Junior: Sometimes you think too much.
LV: I am the Thinkin' Lincoln.
Tommy Junior: I know, I know.
