EXT. THE MOUTH OF THE PIPE NIGHT
This is the far end, of course, across the road. Gathered around are
DEKE. STEVE, JOE, CURT, CONNIE, HANDY, MAX, 3RD PATRON, and the 6TH
PATRON. The 6TH PATRON is up the embankment a way, close to where DEKE
originally observed the DIXIE-BOY.
SOUNDS from the pipe, approaching. First BRETT comes out, then the
4TH PATRON, then BILL. BILL looks around, verifying everyone's there.
All right. Let's go, And--
SOUNDS: Revving engines, breaking wood, smashing concrete.
The others climb up the embankment and look at:
EXT. THE DIXIE-BOY, LONG NIGHT
Their slaves have escaped and the trucks are pissed. They converge
on the truck-stop. Battering it, reducing it to rubble. The overall
feel no once again is that these are motorized dinosaurs on the
rampage. The pumps are knocked over and ground to twists of metal
and piles of powdered glass. The struts supporrting the canopy over
the pumps are knocked out and the canopy falls. The Happy Toyz
truck inflicts the coupe de grace by knocking over the Dixie-Boy Sign.
EXT. BILLíS GROUP
Jesus is coming and he is pissed.
Can we get out of here, Bill?
You bet. We're going to be quiet; weíre
not going to attract any attention.
Because we don't want to end up
like the Dixie-Boy, right?
Oh. you are so right.
Come on. Letís go.
They move out.
