Donnie G.: Sure, buddy, what’s on your mind?
Sidecar: Hey, you know how I ride in the sidecar?
Donnie G.: [ smiling ] Of course I do, Sidecar! That’s why I call you Sidecar!
Sidecar: Yeah, well, uh.. you put me on the curb a couple of times there. Just try to be careful.
Donnie G.: [ chuckling ] Oh, did I? I’m sorry, brother! I didn’t mean to surf the curb, I just got a lot on my mind! [ rubs Sidecar’s helmet, knocking his goggles to the pavement; Affleck smiles in surprise but doesn’t crack up ] You okay?
Sidecar: Yeah. Well, it just hurts my back a little biy.. it doesn’t have great shocks, and.. you know what I’m saying, right?

Donnie G.: Noisemakers, huh? Sidecar, you go around back.[ Sidecar hobbles into the scene, his goggles askew ]
Sidecar: Yeah, uh.. Donnie..
Donnie G.: What happened to you?
Sidecar: Remember how I kept saying.. “Mailbox” back there, all the time?
Donnie G.: Yeah, that was funny, what was that about?
Sidecar: Yeah. Well, I was saying that because you were about to slam into one of those gigantic, industrial mailboxes.
Donnie G.: Oh. Did I hit it?
Sidecar: You did. you did, very hard, and I think I blacked out there for a minute or two.
Donnie G.: Well, what do you want me to do?
Sidecar: Well.. I want you to calculate an extra five feet of space – on your right – for the sidecar, which I’m sitting in. That’s all you need to do.
Donnie G.: No problemo! I just got a lot on my mind these days!
Sidecar: Okay. Just try to remember that I’m sticking out on the side, and I don’t have any control —
Donnie G.: Right, right.
Sidecar: — It’s really scary for me.
Donnie G.: Yeah! No, I got it, I got it!

Italian: Wait a minute! You didn’t do anything about the noisy people in here! [ looks at camera and smiles ] Oh, by the way.. I’m Italian![dissolve to Donnie G. and Sidecar on the road; Sidecar grips tightly to the back of the sidecar as Donnie G. fails to pay attention to him ]
Donnie G.: Boy, I’m glad I thought of this shortcut..

Donnie G.: I see that. Why are you wearing that crazy thing! [ smiles ]
Sidecar: Well, uh.. you drove me through a. through a family picnic.
Donnie G.: No, I didn’t. I drove past a family picnic.
Sidecar: Yeah, but uh.. but the part I was in went right through it.
Donnie G.: That’s impossible! I left plenty of room on the left!
Sidecar: I’m on the right, Donnie.
Donnie G.: Oh. You’re right, my left.
Sidecar: No, it’s the same right, Donnie! [ aggravated ] Look, let’s do this – why don’t we switch, alright?
Donnie G.: Switch? Tell me how that’s gonna work? Your name is Sidecar! I mean.. if Sidecar isn’t in the sidecar, well.. that’s just too damn confusing!
Sidecar: Right. I can’t argue with that, but, uh.. do me a favor – just try to watch out for that space on the right. A little leewayt, that’d be great, I’d really appreicate it.
Donnie G.: No problem.
Cycle Radio Voice: Donnie G., Sidecar – there’s a 520 in progress at the malt shop.
Donnie G.: Uh-oh. I know a shortcut.
Sidecar: [ pleading ] Okay. How about this? What if we don’t take a shortcut, we just take Main Street right down the middle.
