1VIV: Fasten your seat belts. I am taking you for the ride of your life. I'm gonna show you what this car can really do. Are you ready ?
   2ED: I am ready.
1VIV: Hang on.
   2ED: Okay.

   2ED: No, I didn't know that.
1VIV: It's a little bit of trivia.
   2ED: Tell me, what kind of... what kind of money you girls make these days ? Ballpark.

1VIV: I never joke about money.
   2ED: Neither do I. Hundred dollars an hour. Pretty stiff.
1VIV: Well, no. But it's got potential.
