Transcript: The Legend of Burnout Barry
A title reads: The Legend of Burnout Barry
A voice says, IT'S JUST A HILL. AND A HILL IS JUST HEAPS OF REGULAR ROADS STACKED ON TOP OF EACH OTHER. YOU'RE ONE SWEET RECORD AWAY FROM BEING THE FASTEST KID ON WHEELS.
A boy, around thirteen years old, wears glasses and a helmet. He is in a wheelchair.
Another boy calls, AND YOU'RE YOUNG!
A girl with brown hair says, WHAT?
A boy wearing a hat stands at the end of a road and calls, IF YOU GET HURT, YOU'LL HEAL REAL FAST! YOUNG PEOPLE HEAL FAST! THAT'S A FACT!
The boy in the wheelchair whispers, THIS ISN'T HELPING.
The brown-haired girl yells, YOU'RE NOT HELPING! I'M TRYING TO HYPE HIM UP HERE! YOU READY?
The brown-haired girl puts black paint on the boy’s cheeks.
The boy in the wheelchair says, I WAS BORN READY.
The brown-haired girl says, I'LL COUNT DOWN FROM THREE. THREE!
The boy in the hat holds a phone and says, I JUST WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW--
The brown-haired girl yells, TWO!
The boy in the hat says, --I THOUGHT THAT THIS WAS A REALLY BAD IDEA FROM THE BEGINNING.
The brown-haired girl yells, ONE! ARMS IN, HEADS DOWN, AND DON'T STOP UNTIL YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO!
The boy in the wheelchair wheels himself down the road. The boy in the hat holds a radar gun.
The boy in the hat says, FORTY-EIGHT... 49... 50. YOU'RE-- YOU'RE DOING 50!
The boy in the wheelchair leans back and grits his teeth.
The brown-haired girl says, HIS WHEEL. HIS WHEEL.
The boy in the wheelchair tries to slow down. He speeds past the boy in the hat.
The wheelchair is overturned on the side of the road. The boy gives a thumbs-up.
The brown-haired girl cries, HE DID IT!
The boy in the hat yells, YES!
The brown-haired girl says, DID YOU SEE THAT?
The boy in the hat cries, YES, WHEELY IS OFFICIALLY THE FASTEST KID ON WHEELS!
Wheely smiles. He rolls his wheelchair along a sidewalk.
The brown-haired girl calls, HEY, HEY, THIS IS THE FASTEST KID IN TOWN!
Wheely says, I JUST BROKE THE QUARRY HILL RECORD, BABY!
The brown-haired girl says, FIFTY KILOMETRES.
Wheely says, FIFTY KILOMETRES AN HOUR. YO, DID YOU SEE THAT?
The brown-haired girl says, FASTEST KID IN TOWN!
(Car horn honking)
Wheely says, THAT WAS INSANE! I AM UNSTOPPABLE.
The boy in the hat pushes a bicycle.
The boy in the hat says, OH, SPUD. UH, HEY, SHAY, CAN I GET A LITTLE HELP?
Wheely says, I AM UNSTOPPABLE!
Wheely and Shay keep going. The boy in the hat looks at the bicycle. The chain is off. He looks through a rusted wire fence.
(Creepy music playing)
The boy in the hat says, YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.
A figure moves inside an old house.
The boy in the hat cries, AH!
He pushes his bicycle and runs.
('50s rock and roll playing)
A sign on a window reads: Fish and Chips
Wheely says, I'M GOING TO START WITH, UH, TWO POTATO CAKES AND, BECAUSE IT'S MY SPECIAL OCCASION, FOUR DIM SIMS. TWO STEAMED, TWO FRIED.
Shay says, THE SAME.
Wheely says, BRENT?
Brent says, UH, I-- I DON'T REALLY LIKE DIM—
Wheely says, HE'LL HAVE THE SAME AS ME. AND, UH—
Wheely says, --MY... VICTORY DISH.
A man in an apron says, I BETTER SEE THIS RECORD, THEN.
Wheely says, I WAS INCREDIBLE. INSPIRING, EVEN.
Shay says, YOU FACE-PLANTED AT THE FINISH LINE.
Wheely says, SO WHAT? IT'S THE DESTINATION THAT MATTERS, NOT THE JOURNEY. RIGHT, MR. LIM? MR. LIM? YOU OKAY, MR. LIM?
Mr. Lim says, JUST REMEMBER, YOU COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT THIS LOT.
Shay says, UH, WE'LL HAVE TO PICK THIS UP TOMORROW. IT'S, UM, GETTING LATE, AND I'VE GOT SOME STUFF TO DO.
Wheely says, STUFF? WHAT STUFF?
Shay says, YOU KNOW, JUST STUFF.
Wheely says, SOUNDS HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS.
Shay says, OKAY, GREAT. I'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW, THEN BYE.
Brent says, I-- I SHOULD GO, TOO.
Wheely says, WHY? BECAUSE SHAY DID?
Brent says, MUM LIKES IT WHEN WE TRAVEL HOME TOGETHER.
Wheely says, YOU SURE YOU DON'T WANT A BITE OF MY... VICTORY ONION?
Brent says, UH... NEXT TIME.
Brent gets up. Wheely sits at a restaurant table filled with dirty plates.
Wheely looks at a phone.
A message from Mum reads: You are in big trouble.
Wheely at a chalkboard on a wall. It reads: Wheely (WC). 00:00:27. T/S 50 km/h.
A woman washing nods her head toward the chalkboard. Wheely slides a panel on it to reveal more of the board.
It reads: Barry. 00:00:27. T/S 50 km/h.
Wheely slides the panel back.
A police car is outside a house.
A dark-haired woman says, I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO DO WITH YOU.
Wheely says, YOU KNOW, BEING DRIVEN HOME IN A POLICE CAR IS PROBABLY PUNISHMENT ENOUGH.
The dark-haired woman says, THE RADAR GUN IS NOT A TOY, JOSH. IT'S AN OFFICIAL PIECE OF POLICE EQUIPMENT.
Josh says, I USED IT PROPERLY.
The dark-haired woman says, I'M SERIOUS! NO MORE STUNTS. SOMEONE COULD HAVE GOT HURT.
Josh says, THAT ROAD'S BEEN CLOSED FOR AGES.
The woman says, THAT DOESN'T MAKE IT OKAY.
Josh says, IT'S THE HOLIDAYS!
The dark-haired woman says, AH, YOU SHOULD'VE THOUGHT OF THAT BEFORE YOU CLOCKED... 50 KILOMETRES? THAT'S REALLY FAST, JOSH!
Josh says, I KNOW.
The dark-haired woman says, NO, JOSH, IT'S INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS. DID YOU GET THE RECORD?
Josh says, YEAH.WHY? WHO SAID I DIDN'T?
The dark-haired woman says, UH...
She gets out of the police car.
(Ominous music playing)
Josh thrashes in bed.
Shay says, HEY, HEY, THIS IS THE FASTEST KID IN TOWN! HEY, HEY, THIS IS THE FASTEST KID IN TOWN! FASTEST KID IN TOWN!
The dark-haired woman says, DID YOU GET THE RECORD?
Mr. Lim says, I BETTER SEE THIS RECORD. I BETTER SEE THIS RECORD.
Josh opens his eyes.
It is daytime. Shay and Bren stand in a doorway. They look tired.
Shay says, I THOUGHT WE WERE MEETING AT LUNCHTIME.
Josh says, I GOT UP EARLY. YOU KNOW, SEIZE THE DAY, CATCH THE WORM.
Josh says, FINE. THERE'S SOMETHING I NEED TO SHOW YOU. NOW!
Brent starts to go after Josh.
Shay says, BRENT. BRENT! PYJAMAS.
Brent runs back inside.
At the restaurant, Josh slides open the panel on the chalkboard.
Brent says, I DON'T GET IT. WHAT--
Shay says, HE DIDN'T BEAT THE RECORD.
Josh says, SHH.
Mr. Lim glances over.
Brent whispers, SO WHAT? YOU MATCHED IT. IT'S NOT LIKE THIS BARRY DID IT IN A WHEELCHAIR.
Josh slides the panel further open. Writing on the chalkboard reads: Barry did it in a wheelchair.
Brent puts a hand to his chest. His shirt reads: My mate’s a legend.
Brent zips his jacket up over the shirt. Josh closes his eyes.
Brent, Shay and Josh go to empty outdoor bleachers.
Josh says, I MEAN, WHO'S TO SAY THIS BARRY EVEN EXISTS?
Brent says, THAT'S A GOOD POINT.
Josh says, HIS RECORD IS FROM 1986. THAT'S, LIKE, 50 YEARS AGO.
Shay says, IT'S 33 YEARS AGO.
Brent says, HE'D BE SO OLD BY NOW. MAYBE EVEN DEAD.
Shay says, SO IF YOU'RE OLD OR DEAD, YOUR RECORD SHOULDN'T STAND?
Josh says, NO, OF COURSE NOT. YOU SHOULD LEAVE A LEGACY. THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT.
Shay says, LOOK, YOU WANT TO FIND OUT ONCE AND FOR ALL WHO'S THE FASTEST?
SIMPLE. FIND THIS BARRY AND RACE HIM.
Josh says, MM.
Shay asks, OR ARE YOU SCARED OF LOSING TO AN OLD MAN?
Brent says, SCARED OF LOSING TO A GHOST? WHAT? HE-- HE COULD BE A GHOST BY NOW.
Josh says, OKAY, FINE. WE FIND BARRY. I CHALLENGE HIM TO A RACE. I WIN, BECAUSE I'M THE FASTEST KID IN TOWN, AND NOBODY NEEDS TO KNOW OTHERWISE.
Shay says, GREAT.
Josh says, GREAT.
Brent says, GREAT.
Josh asks, WHERE DO WE START?
Shay says, YOU WANT TO DO THIS NOW?
Josh asks, DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING BETTER TO DO?
Shay says, MAYBE WE SHOULD SPLIT UP.
Brent asks, SPLIT UP?
Josh says, WE NEVER SPLIT UP.
Shay says, YOU KNOW, WE CAN, UM, COVER MORE GROUND, MOVE FASTER.
Josh calls, HOW -- HOW EXACTLY WILL WE FIND HIM?
Shay says, IT'S A SMALL TOWN. HOW MANY BARRYS CAN THERE BE?
Josh types “Barry” into a search engine.
Brent reads, YOUR SEARCH HAS YIELDED 300 MILLION RESULTS.
Brent says, THIS IS GOING TO TAKE AGES!
Josh says, WE WERE SUPPOSED TO SPLIT UP. STOP FOLLOWING ME.
Josh wheels away.
Brent walks outside.
Brent calls, BARRY!
Brent calls, BARRY! BARRY?
A jogger stops and takes off headphones.
The jogger says, SORRY. DID YOU SAY "HARRY"?
Josh waves down a car. He taps on the car window.
Josh says, SORRY, MA'AM. JUST A, UH, RANDOM CHECK. YOU GOT ANY BARRYS ON BOARD?
A woman in the car says, NO.
Josh says, UH, I'M GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE A LOOK IN THE BOOT.
Brent pushes Josh along a sidewalk.
Josh says, I DON'T GET IT. IF THIS BARRY REALLY DID SET THE RECORD, HE'D BE A LEGEND, LIKE ME. SO HOW COME NOBODY'S EVER HEARD OF HIM?
Brent says, MAYBE... HE LEFT TOWN.
Josh says, IS THAT YOUR STOMACH?
Brent shakes his head.
Shay is playing an electric guitar in a garage.
Josh says, (Muffled) LOOK, LOOK.
Brent says, WHAT?
Shay opens the garage door.
Shay asks, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
Josh says, UH, TRYING TO FIND BARRY, WHICH IS MORE THAN YOU'RE DOING, UNLESS YOU'RE HOPING HE'S GOING TO PUT IN A NOISE COMPLAINT.
Brent says, AW, COME ON, WHEELY. THAT'S NOT NICE.
Josh says, WHAT? WE'RE OUT THERE TRYING TO SAVE OUR RECORD. AND SHE'S WASTING TIME WORKING ON HER ED SHEERAN IMPERSONATION.
Shay says, I THINK YOU MEAN YOUR RECORD.
Josh asks, THIS IS WHY YOU WANTED TO SPLIT UP?
Shay says, I JUST WANTED ONE DAY IN MY SCHOOL HOLIDAYS WHERE IT WASN'T ALL ABOUT YOU! IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK?
Josh says, SO YOU CAN HAVE TOMORROW OR THE NEXT, DEPENDING ON HOW LONG IT TAKES US TO FIND BARRY!
Shay says, IT'S LIKE TALKING TO A BRICK WALL!
Shay hands Josh a paper.
Josh says, WHAT'S THIS?
Shay says, IT'S WHERE YOU CAN FIND YOUR BARRY.
Brent says, AH, YOU-- YOU SEE, SHAY? WE WORK BETTER AS A TEAM!
Josh says, COME ON! WE'VE WASTED ENOUGH TIME!
Shay says, HE STILL DOESN'T GET IT. YOU MIGHT BE HAPPY TO FOLLOW HIM AROUND LIKE A SHEEP, BUT NOT ME. I AM DONE.
Josh calls, COME ON, BRENT!
Shay says, BAA!
(Creepy music playing)
Brent and Josh are outside the old house.
Brent says, THIS IS OLD MAN MCWIMPLE'S HOUSE. THEY SAY HE NEVER LEAVES HIS SHACK. THEY SAY HE EATS SEAGULLS... AND KIDS.
Josh says, SO HE LIVES OFF THE GRID. GOOD ON HIM.
Brent says, MY COUSIN TELLS ME HE'S TINY BUT HIS ARMS ARE SO LONG THAT THEY HIT THE FLOOR. PERFECT FOR SCOOPING UP HIS... MEALS.
Josh says, BRENT, LOOK AT YOU. YOU'RE LITERALLY UN-SCOOP-ABLE.
Brent says, HE MIGHT GET ME FROM MY ANKLES, TAKE MY WEIGHT OUT FROM UNDER ME.
Josh says, BRENT, IF THIS IS THE BARRY, HE'S JUST AN AGING CHAMPION WHO LIKES BIRDS. HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN WHY WE CAME HERE?
(Creepy music playing)
A shadowy figure is at a window. Brent looks scared.
Josh says, BRENT? BRENT? YOU'RE REALLY GOING TO LISTEN TO THOSE RUMOURS?
Brent nods and runs.
Josh calls, SHE'S RIGHT! YOU ARE A SHEEP!
Josh wheels up to the old house.
Josh knocks on a front door.
The door is opened by a man with a short grey beard.
Josh asks, IS BARRY IN?
The man with the beard says, NO.
(Door closing loudly)
Josh says, I JUST WANT TO KNOW IF YOU'RE THE SAME BARRY THAT RACED DOWN OLD QUARRY HILL.
The man says, LEAVE OR I'M CALLING THE POLICE!
Josh goes into the restaurant.
Josh says, MR. LIM! YOU WON'T BELIEVE THE DAY I HAD. MR. LIM? MRS.-- MRS. LIM?
A VCR is attached to a small television. The screen shows a black and white video of a boy in a wheelchair.
(People shouting indistinctly)
The tape ends.
Josh looks at a framed picture. Mrs. Lim peeks around a corner. She holds a remote.
The man with the beard wheels to the closed door.
The man says, GO AWAY!
A framed picture slides under the door. It shows two boys, one in a wheelchair, on a road.
Josh says, I’M STILL HERE.
Josh and the man with the beard are inside, by a fireplace.
The man with the beard says, THAT'S ME, BURNOUT BARRY.
Josh says, YOU RACED DOWN OLD QUARRY HILL AND SMASHED THE RECORD!
Barry says, NOT OFFICIALLY. THE FOOTAGE, THAT WAS OF A PRACTICE SESSION.
Josh says, BUT YOUR NAME, IT'S-- IT'S ON THE WALL.
Barry says, WELL, IT SHOULDN'T BE. MY VEHICLE WASN'T DEEMED RACE-WORTHY. THE RULES SAID WE COULD ONLY RACE IN BILLY CARTS.
Josh says, THAT'S STUPID. IT HAS THE SAME AMOUNT OF WHEELS AS THE CHAIR.
Barry says, EXACTLY WHAT I SAID, AND I BECAME DETERMINED NOT JUST TO RACE, BUT TO WIN. I HAD TO-- WHY BOTHER RACING IF--
Josh says, IF YOU'RE NOT THE FASTEST!
Barry says, BUT... I WAS NARROW-MINDED, AND IT ALMOST COST ME MY BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WORLD. HENRY THOUGHT WE SHOULD FIGHT THE SYSTEM, YOU KNOW, PROPERLY, WITH PAPERWORK.
Josh says, BORING.
Barry says, I DON'T ASK FOR PERMISSION. SO I ENTERED UNDER HENRY'S NAME SO THEY WOULDN'T SUSPECT ANYTHING. AND WHEN THEY FIRED THE STARTING GUN, I SNUCK INTO THE PACK.
Josh says, AND?
Barry says, I'D WORKED THE CHAIR TOO HARD. A NUT CAME LOOSE. AND AS I HIT TOP SPEED, MY FRONT WHEEL CAME CLEAN OFF, WENT FLYING, NARROWLY MISSED TWO OTHER RACERS. COULD'VE KILLED THEM.
Josh says, SO THAT'S WHY THEY STOPPED RUNNING THE OLD QUARRY HILL DASH.
Barry says, THAT AND THE FACT THAT IT'S BESIDE THE TOWN'S SEWERAGE OUTLET.
Josh says, BUT YOUR PRACTICE TIME, IT WAS STILL WAY FASTER THAN ANYONE ON THE DAY.
Barry says, MAYBE, BUT I WAS... I WAS SO ASHAMED. HENRY COPPED SOME OF THE BLAME, AND I-- I COULDN'T LOOK HIM IN THE EYE. SO I BECAME OLD MAN MCWIMPLE. GAVE PEOPLE A REASON TO LEAVE ME ALONE. HAVE THE TITLE, KID. I WOULDN'T CHALLENGE YOU FOR IT EVEN IF I COULD. BETTER PUT THIS BACK WHERE IT BELONGS.
Barry gives Josh the picture.
Barry asks, HOW DID IT FEEL... WHEN YOU RACED DOWN THE HILL?
Josh says, AMAZING. LIKE I WAS... FLYING.
Barry says, MM. NOT A WORD OF THIS TO ANYONE, EH?
Josh wheels outside. He looks at his phone.
Shay sits in the garage, holding the guitar.
Shay looks at a torn flyer that reads: Open mic night
Mr. Lim looks at Brent. Brent looks uncertain. He turns over a paper with Barry’s address. The other side of the paper is part of the flyer.
Josh is in bed.
(Knocking, door opening)
The dark-haired woman says, YOU ALRIGHT? YOU KNOW IT'S ONLY SEVEN O'CLOCK.
Josh asks, HOW MANY FRIENDS DO YOU NEED? LIKE... AS AN ADULT?
The dark-haired woman says, UH, THERE'S ANY HARD AND FAST RULES. A FEW? UH, MAYBE?
Josh says, I NEED NUMBERS.
The dark-haired woman sits on the bed.
The dark-haired woman says, I THINK IT'S MORE ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE FRIENDSHIPS THAN THE QUANTITY.
Josh says, THAT'S SOMETHING SOMEONE WITH NO FRIENDS WOULD SAY.
The dark-haired woman asks, WELL, YOU'RE NOT SHORT OF FRIENDS ALL OF SUDDEN NOW, ARE YOU?
Josh says, OH, NO, I'M NOT ASKING FOR ME.
The dark-haired woman says, WELL, I THINK WE NEED GOOD FRIENDS, ONES THAT ARE LIKE FAMILY, WHO WILL SUPPORT YOU, KEEP YOU ACCOUNTABLE, THAT ENCOURAGE YOU. BUT THEY AREN'T MEDALS. YOU CAN'T JUST COLLECT THEM. YOU HAVE TO BE A GOOD FRIEND IN RETURN IF YOU WANT THEM TO STICK AROUND.
Josh says, I'VE GOT REALLY GREAT FRIENDS.
The dark-haired woman says, SOUNDS LIKE YOU BETTER LET THEM KNOW.
Josh says, I DON'T KNOW WHAT I COULD DO WITHOUT THEM.
The dark-haired woman says, WELL, YOU DID TRY VIOLIN BY YOURSELF. THAT WAS A MISTAKE.
Josh says, OUCH.
The dark-haired woman says, NIGHT-NIGHT, BUDDY.
Josh says, NIGHT.
The dark-haired woman leaves.
Josh takes out the picture of Barry and Henry.
(Playing violin badly)
It is daytime.
Shay looks out a window. Josh is playing a violin outside.
Shay says, PLEASE, STOP BEFORE SOMEBODY THINKS IT'S ME.
Josh says, LOOK, I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT I HAVEN'T BEEN THE BEST OF FRIENDS LATELY.
Shay says, IS THIS AN APOLOGY?
Josh asks, IS IT WORKING? I COULDN'T DO HALF THE THINGS I DO WITHOUT YOU.
Shay says, THAT'S NOT TRUE.
Josh says, WELL, MAYBE NOT, BUT IT WOULDN'T BE NEARLY AS FUN.
Shay says, LOOK, YOU WERE RIGHT ANYWAYS. I WAS WASTING MY TIME.
Brent is in the garage.
Brent says, I-- I'M SORRY. I WAS ONLY TRYING TO FIX YOUR GUITAR.
Shay says, BRENT, I'M SORRY THAT I CALLED YOU A SHEEP.
Josh says, SO AM I.
Brent says, I FORGIVE YOU, BOTH OF YOU, BUT ONLY IF YOU GUYS DON'T GIVE UP.
Josh says, BRING IT HERE.
Shay asks, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
Josh says, APOLOGIZING, PROPERLY.
Josh tries to tune the guitar.
Shay says, DO YOU WANT ME TO...
Josh says, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.
Shays takes the guitar and the violin.
Josh says, SO... NOW THAT WE'RE... HELPING EACH OTHER OUT...
Josh and the others look at the chalkboard.
Josh says, IF WE'RE GOING TO BE RECORD HOLDERS, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DO IT RIGHT.
Brent says, OH, SPUD. UM, UH, MR. LIM, CAN WE HAVE A FEW DIMMIES TO GO? UH, FOR BARRY. WHAT-- WHAT IF HE'S HUNGRY? I-- I DON'T WANT TO BE ON HIS MENU.
Shay shakes her head.
Shay wheels a covered wheelchair from Barry’s house.
Josh goes into the restaurant.
Josh calls, MR. LIM!
Barry opens his front door. Brent kneels and hold out a paper bag.
Brent says, AN OFFERING OF BOTH STEAMED AND FRIED.
Brent looks at Barry.
Brent says, YOU'RE NOT SCARY AT ALL.
Barry starts to go back inside.
Josh calls, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO. WAIT. WHAT'S THE POINT OF BEING A LOSER WITH NO FRIENDS WHEN YOU CAN BE A WINNER... WITH... NO FRIENDS?
Shay says, IS THAT SUPPOSED TO CONVINCE HIM?
Josh says, WHAT I MEANT TO SAY WAS, LET'S REWRITE HISTORY. ONE RACE. TWO CONTESTANTS. TO SEE WHO'S THE FASTEST KID IN TOWN.
Josh says, I'M SERIOUS. DON'T YOU WANT TO FEEL LIKE YOU'RE FLYING AGAIN?
Barry asks, AND HOW EXACTLY AM I MEANT TO DO THAT?
Shay uncovers the wheelchair.
Shay says, WITH THIS.
The front bumper of the wheelchair reads: Burnout Barry.
Barry is outside, wearing a helmet. His eyes are closed.
Josh says, YOU'VE DONE IT ONCE BEFORE. YOU CAN DO IT AGAIN. IT'S JUST A PILE OF REGULAR ROADS STACKED ON TOP OF EACH OTHER.
Barry says, CAN YOU STOP THAT?
Shay asks, YOU TWO READY?
Barry says, AS I'LL EVER BE.
Shay says, NOW, REMEMBER, GENTLEMEN, THIS IS FOR THE RECORD.
Shay looks at Josh and asks, WHAT'S WRONG?
Josh says, NOTHING. I WAS JUST HOPING SOMEONE WOULD BE HERE.
Barry asks, CAN WE HURRY UP? I'M GETTING OLDER BY THE MINUTE!
Shay says, HANDS ON YOUR BRAKES. THREE. TWO. ONE!
Barry and Josh wheel down the hill.
Shay shouts, GO, WHEELY! COME ON!
Josh and Barry speed along the road.
Brent holds a phone up.
Brent asks, WHO'S WINNING? I CAN'T WATCH.
Mr. Lim says, TOO CLOSE TO CALL.
Brent says, HUH? MR. LIM?
Josh smiles. He looks at Barry. Barry has his eyes closed and his head up.
Josh slows his wheelchair.
Shay says, NO, NO! W-WHAT'S HAPP-- NO, WHEELY!
Barry pumps his wheelchair harder and smiles. He stops just past Brent and Mr. Lim.
Barry cries, YES! YOU LITTLE BEAUTY! AH.
Josh comes to a stop. Shay runs up to him.
Shay says, WHAT-- WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT IS THE-- WAS IT THE CHAIR? I CHECKED EVERYTHING!
Josh says, SHH. LOOK.
Mr. Lim goes to Barry.
Mr. Lim says, HEY, BAZ. BAZ.
Barry says, HENRY? WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
Mr. Lim smiles and holds up a stopwatch.
Mr. Lim says, SOMEONE HAD TO MAKE IT OFFICIAL.
Barry smiles. He and Mr. Lim slap hands. They hug.
Josh asks, SO, HOW DID YOU FIND BARRY?
Shay says, WELL, THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE SPOKEN FOR YEARS, BUT TURNS OUT HE'S STILL BEEN EATING MR. LIM'S FOOD. BARRY'S THEIR NUMBER ONE DELIVERY CUSTOMER.
Brent says, WELL, THE FOOD IS GOOD.
Shay says, WOULD YOU HAVE THROWN THE RACE IF MR. LIM DIDN'T TURN UP?
Josh says, I THINK SO. WATCHING FRIENDS WIN IS KIND OF COOL. YOU MUST GET REALLY TIRED OF IT.
Barry rolls over to Josh.
Barry says, I OWE YOU AN APOLOGY.
Josh asks, FOR WHAT?
Barry says, FOR THINKING YOU WERE JUST LIKE ME.
Josh says, BUT YOU'RE SUCH A GOOD ROLE MODEL.
Barry asks, HOW SO?
Josh says, FOR NOT ENDING UP ALL ALONE IN A SHACK AND HAVING PEOPLE THINK I EAT BIRDS FOR BREAKFAST.
Barry says, OH, I SEE-- A ROLE MODEL OF WHAT NOT TO DO.
Shay asks, SO, DID WE WORK OUT WHO WAS THE FASTEST?
Josh says, DOES IT MATTER?
Barry says, WE COULD ALWAYS RACE AGAIN.
Josh says, OH, SPUD.
