DANIEL: By the time I'm a senior,

I hope I have my license

so we can cruise around and do nothing,

instead of walk around and do nothing.

♪ I think... ♪

DANIEL: Always wanted to
see those weird trees with spikes.

I've always wondered if they were sharp

and if coconuts grew on all of them.

How did people first know
you could eat a coconut?


what I'm trying to say is

I want to go to Cali with my crew.

Bear, Willie Jack and Elora...

We'll all be about to graduate.

We could bust Cheese out
for the weekend.

Maybe by then, Elora will like me back.


DANIEL: Even if she doesn't,

we'll still be homies.

No one in the world laughs like her.


DANIEL: I can't wait to see the smile
on her face when she sees the ocean.

- BEAR: f*ck, just turn it.

- ELORA: Yeah, turn it.
- JACKIE: I'm turning.

BEAR: Stop turning.

All right, all right,
all right, let's do this.

ELORA: Let's split up. Y'all
go look for the keys on the bus.

Cheese, you're lookout. Sko.

BEAR: Hey, bro, in and out, in and out.

WILLIE JACK: f*ck, bro,
watch for needles, man.

ELORA: (SIGHS) Okay, where is it?

BEAR: f*ck would
they put these keys, bro?

like f*cking shit in here.

Hey. One of those opens the gate.


Hey, girl.

f*ck, we need a code. Try .

Oh, f*ck, okay. Um...

try .

- Oh, f*ck. Okay.

f*ck. Ooh.


- Keys.

Got 'em, bro. Go, sko, sko.

f*ck. Think, think. Uh...


What the f*ck?



KENNY BOY: Yá'àt'ééh.

Hi, Kenny Boy.

You're here for the car?


We need it to go to California.




The code is .

The year Sitting Bull was born.

You're just... you're just
gonna let us take it?

You know...

it's been a weird last few days.

- Pay what you owe when the time
- is right,

in this lifetime or the next.

And if in the next,

I'm a horse, you can pay me in oats.

And if I'm a cow,

milk me gently.

Safe travels, Elora Danan,

and your elvish friend.

I shouldn't say elvish,
it's just the blonde hair.

I'm assuming it's not natural, but...

I shouldn't assume, it-it could be.

Sometimes, the roots
go from dark to blonde.

Just be safe out there.
Use your blinker.

Potholes are the devil.


ANSEL: Oh, there they are.

KENNY BOY: Look at them go.

Shugmanitu t*nk...


ANSEL: Yeah.


Yeah, this is it.

Hey, streets is hard out there.

- Don't get sh*t up.
- For real.

Man, we almost got sh*t up out there.


Yeah, we just hid
behind the tall people.

you got your medicines?

- WILLIE JACK: You already know.
- MEKKO: For sure.

Remember, gluten-free
just means no bread.

And don't eat the barbecue
unless it's Korean.

MOSE: And, uh, don't
buy farmers market sage.

- Mm.
- It give you bad luck,

- stinky pits, and foot fungus.
- Yeah.

- Okay.
- And let your boys know if you get caught up,

we got lots of friends out there.

JACKIE: Hey, um,

be safe.

Safer than we were.

(CHUCKLES) For real.

Might actually make it this time.

We'll be back.


- WEEZE: Later, f*ck. Later, shitass.
- I'll see your shitass later.

White Steve, don't cry, bro.
You're gonna make me cry, bro.

- BONE THUG DOG: Safe travels.
- WILLIE JACK: You too, man.


- Y'all be safe.

- Hushwas.

(WHOOPS) Love you, bitches.

- Oh, f*ck!
- MEKKO: Ooh.

MOSE: That can't be good.

Life's hard.

One of the hardest.


- Look at this little shitass.


Yeah, it's just a straight sh*t
from here, right?


See that turn up there?

Don't take it.

Just go straight. Follow the sun, bro.

How long's it gonna take
for us to get there?

- Take a couple days.
- WILLIE JACK: Shut your eyes, bro,

and then we'll be there.

Nah, I can't. I'm too excited.

WILLIE JACK: f*ck, me too.

Damn, man,

how crazy is it to know
what Daniel was thinking back then?

- Shit.
- WILLIE JACK: For real.

Especially his unrequited love
for Elora.

- CHEESE: That was a shock.

- Little plot twist.
- f*ck you talking about?

- Nothing ever even happened.
- Bro, come on, man.

We all knew, bro.

- WILLIE JACK: f*ck yeah, we knew.

You didn't f*cking know anything.

Come on.

I didn't know.
I thought you guys were cousins.

- (LAUGHS) Cousins.
- Uh, no.

Only through marriage, bro.

Not like they're
from the same clan or anything.


Nah, but for real, though,

I'm happy we're getting you
to Cali, man.

It's not about me.

- WILLIE JACK: We read that letter.
- Yeah.

Daydreaming about you all day,

- smiling at the ocean.
- ELORA: It's not... It's not about me,

it's about all of us going to Cali,

together, for Daniel, 'cause he can't.

- For the bro.
- Yeah.

What are we gonna do
when we get out there?

WILLIE JACK: Go to the ocean,
bro. Haven't you been listening?

CHEESE: Well, yeah, I know,
we're gonna go to the ocean,

but, like, are we just
gonna sit there or...

Why don't we just...

put this in the ocean?

You know? Kind of like what
y'all did with Jackie's stuff.

But that was to get rid
of something, though.

Yeah, yeah, I-I know that, but, like,

this is kind of like
a piece of Daniel, you know?

And, like, putting him in the ocean
is always something he wanted to do.

And after that,

the world's our oyster.

Whatever the f*ck that means.


- Good thinking, bro.
- Yeah.

- Real tradish.
- It's very intuitive.

Young elder.

What does an oyster mean, though?

Like a... another word for a clam.

-WILLIE JACK: Isn't it like,
-Is it really a clam?

Chips or something?

The world's your Indian taco.

Ooh. I like that one.

That one sounds nice.

WILLIE JACK: Can we get
some Flamin' Flamers now?

f*ck, I'm hungry.

♪ It seemed that you're d*ad. ♪


Holy f*ck!

Here you guys go.

Damn, with that stack, bro.

Roofing paying the big bucks.

- (LAUGHS) Thank you.
- WILLIE JACK: You solid, bro.

ELORA: I put money in there, too.

Man, what the f*ck

That's f*cking deadly, man.

a fat burger right now.

- Coney and tater tots for me.
- Yeah.

It's a taco shack.

Yeah, shit, brother,
they ain't got rez food here.

- WILLIE JACK: Smells like shit.
- BEAR: f*ck it, L.A., bro.



Rough day?

ELORA: No, we just got into town.

Been driving for a while.

WAITRESS: Where you from?

The rez, man.

What's the rez?

Usually isolated,

economically depressed,

big dreams, not a lot of opportunities.

Kind of a food desert.


Guess I'm from the rez, too.

I'll give you a minute.

Thank you.

L.A. people are nice.

f*ck' A.

- We're here.
- f*ck yeah, man.

It's like you can
smell salt everywhere.

Just your upper lip, bro.

- Yeesh.

BEAR: We should eat quick and head
to the beach before the sun goes down.

Or could we get a hotel room
tonight and

sleep in a nice bed,

you know? Get some rest,

watch some TV, get a shower.

Yeah, but, honestly,

I think it's best if we just
slept inside the car.

Like, save money.

Yeah, won't be comfortable,
but Bear's right.

Well, f*ck, you guys better not
be tearing rags all night.

I sleep with my mouth open.

- Yeah, Cheese.
- What-what's the...


"Chile roll-leno."

We're by the ocean,
they got to have catfish, right?

Oh, money's in the glove box.

I'll go.


- MAN: Wow, that's messed-up.
- WOMAN: Yeah.

What the f*ck?

f*ck, man.

Like, that was literally
all of our money.

The snacks.


Daniel's letter.


- Should we report it?

No, we can't report it.

If we do, they're gonna arrest
us and bring us back home.

Gonna have to call your dad, Bear.

I'm not calling my f*cking dad.

What else are we gonna do, Bear?


Just let me think.

Hurry up. f*ck, who cares.

Fine, fine. f*ck it, fine.

I'll just f*cking call this douchebag.

You have reached a number

that has been disconnected
or is no lon...


Just... I can't do this shit.

It's an unfortunate event,
what just happened here.

White Jesus?

BEAR: Wait,

you seen what happened?

Yeah, man.

Guys in suits.

Gangsters or... Mormons.

Gacked it.

Aho, White Jesus,

which way's the beach?

Mountains are uphill, beach is down.

Fair enough. Sko.

You-you shan't go it alone.

Thy beach is ten miles from here.

Thoust don't know what these
L.A. neighborhoods are like.

Made a promise to Daniel.

I'm gonna see it through.

Yeah, let's go, come on.

Can you take us there?

You would have me, thy humble servant,

guide thee to the beach?

Yeah, sure.

(LAUGHS) Let us go, then.

- CHEESE: All right.
- WHITE JESUS: Come on.

CHEESE: He is the way.

WHITE JESUS: And the truth

and the light. Don't you forget it.

You f*cking serious?

We're gonna go with White Jesus?

- Yeah, bro.
- Yeah.

WHITE JESUS: Come, now.

- Okay.
- WHITE JESUS: Body of me?

Say no more, man.

Peace be with you.

What's up, brothers and sisters?


Do you just know everyone here?

For the most part.
My last place wasn't this nice.

Watch out for Phillip,
he has a low blood sugar thing.

It's a long story.
There's food everywhere.

Salmon, cake.



Watch thou step.




Brethren. Sistren.


Here we are.

Thoust can take the mattresses.
I prefer the hard ground.

Uh, I do have a couple of foldy chairs.

You can
figure out your sleep situations. Um...

I do have one toothbrush. Uh...

It's kind of multipurpose,
but you're all welcome to it.

Please, for the love
of all things holy,

keep your hands off of my
metal detector,

and, yes, come in.

Come in to thine s*ab.




Ah... All right.

BEAR: Hey.

We can't just stop.

We kind of got to go to the beach.

We can't stay here.

- f*ck no, bro.
- I know, bro.

WHITE JESUS: Ah, you're
far better off here than you are

out there on your own at night.

Listen, the beach is five miles

straight down this road.

In the morning,
I'll take you there myself.



All right, yeah. f*ck it, we'll stay.

Just for the night, okay?

We'll stand guard, all right?

We'll take shifts.


- Yeah.
- Okay.


CHEESE: I mean, everyone
knows him for Lost Boys,

but he did Thunderdome, too,

and he toured
with Tina Turner for years.

Is that the guy in the diaper?

No, that's, um, Ton Ton Tattoo.


Wait, so there's two sax players
in Thunderdome?

No, Tim Cappello

wasn't in the movie.

He-he just did the song in the credits.

Oh. Got it.

Daniel showed me that movie.

- Which one?
- Both, actually.


He was my hero, you know?

Tim Cappello?

No. Uh, Daniel.

Um, it just seemed like
he could do anything, you know?

Me too.

I think the same about you, you know?

(CHUCKLES): Really?


I mean, it just seems like,
anytime we get into trouble,

you just know what to do.


That's f*cking stupid, Cheese.


I have no idea what to do right now.


If anyone can make it out,

it'd be you.

- MAN: LAPD! Let's go!



Shit. Better get the f*ck up.
Get the f*ck up.

- f*ck up.
- ELORA: What the f*ck's going on?

Mm, I was dreaming, bro. (GROANS)

- Cops are here, bro.
- What?

- Come on, we got to go.
- What... what time is it?

- Oh, shit.

- MAN: Move! Let's go! Go!

Where's White Jesus?

f*cking dipped out on us
hella long ago, bro.

Uh, he'll forever
live on in our hearts.

♪ ♪


I can't go any further.

You guys go on without me.

f*ck, Cheese, man. Come on, bro,
we're almost there.

You said that,
like, four hours ago, bro.

Just admit it, you don't know
where we're going.

We're just following the directions
of White Jesus, Willie Jack.


The f*ck?

That f*ck
was walking fast as shit.

Can't stay here.

Don't want to get picked up
by some white lady

who likes ranch dressing
on her dinner rolls.

Yeah. Exactly.

Elora, you have some
really, really specific fears.


ELORA: What?

- You guys hear that?


CHEESE: It just... keeps going.

WILLIE JACK: It's like
a big-ass lake that never ends.

CHEESE: Unreal.










- WILLIE JACK: Skoden.
- Ooh.


Come on, bro.

You got to put your feet
in the sand. Feel it.


I know what we came here to do, but...

I don't want to let him go, Bear.

Hey. Hey, Elora, we're not.


it's the pain.

That's what we're letting go.

It's got us stuck.

Just imagine

how happy Danny would be
seeing us live our lives.

Finally in Cali.

- Ready?
- Uh, yeah.

Um, well...



genderless being,

we're here for our friend Daniel.


well, we just wanted this moment
to be significant.

Like in the movies.

Like in NeverEnding Story when

the wind bl*ws down
to the basement, and

Bastian realized that he's been reading
about himself, but, like,

his inner-self was actually Atreyu,



Keep going, bro.

We didn't get to say goodbye
to you, Daniel.

And, um...

you know what?
To be honest, I've been...

kind of mad at you.

You're my hero, man.

Now you're not here
to make things right or better.

And Willie Jack,

she cares for her family members.

And now she's lost a brother,

cousin, friend.

And Bear...

he lost his best friend.

Now, a whole piece of him's missing.

And Elora...

she lost her hope.

Whenever she looked into the future,

she'd see you there, man.

You're our brother.

Remember you for all the
good things we've done together.

And we're out here for you, man.

We just hope we're doing
the right thing.

BEAR: Cheese.

I love you, bitches.


WILLIE JACK: f*cking love you guys.


Let's go all the way in.



I'm scared of what's in there.

f*ck, man, me too, bro.

I won't let you drown.

f*cking hell!

- Shit!

It's freezing!

We did it.

My uncle Cvto lives on a rez nearby.

Maybe he can help us.

I'm not going back.
