another scene idea!

hi, i just had an idea for a scene outline. i dont know what a lot of those dialogue topics mean, but let's pretend i do and take 'free will vs fate.'

CAR OWNER IN MIDDLE SEAT = A
OTHER PERSON IN MIDDLE SEAT = B
PERSON IN PASSENGER SEAT = C

there's two people in the middle seat. one is the owner of the car(A), but he's letting someone else drive(the switch could be a link. and maybe pulling over to pee? just an idea).

so these two, A and B, start this conversation all about free will vs fate, and it turns into a debate. near the beginning of this debate, the person in the passenger seat(C) finds the CB radio in the glovebox, and interrupts the argument to ask A, "hey does this thing work." A responds, "yeah, man, if you can figure out how to hook it up, go nuts." and then he continues his debate.

we keep showing the debate with insert shots of C hooking up the CB radio. he gets to a certain point, and then interrupts the debate again to ask how to turn the cb on. A tells him, then continues the debate. the debate is nearing argument.

finally, C has the CB radio on. he turns around once more to ask, "hey, so how do you talk to people on this thing?" A, exasperated, leans forward, flicks it to a channel, and asks if anyone is out there. a redneck trucker comes on, and A asks him the key question of the debate he was having with B. the trucker responds with the exact, well-worded argument that B was saying.

shot of B with an "i told you so" look. shot of A with a look of disbelief on his face. "over and out," he says. then sits back, defeated.

this may be confusing-- and even if you get it, it may seem a little mainstream, but i think it could be both really insightful and really funny if we pull it off right.

like it? dont like it? questions?

brilliant.
truckers have to be intelligent from all that travel, right?
or insane, which could help A's argument. ^_^
yeah, but it's only a thirty minute movie, noooonch. :)
I dunno about the exact argument, I think it'd be better if it was in another form.

But the thing is, I don't want it to look like any one idea "wins". So maybe the trucker could just say something completely different...
it can be any argument, really.
