Repo Man theme music now begins playing. Map is shown in background (green text on black background), zoomed in on Los Alamos, New Mexico. While remaining credits are shown, the map travels to Sante Fe, then Albuquerque, then begins following US66 west through Arizona to California, finally ending up a few miles east of Goffs (northwest of Needles).

Green '64 Chevy Malibu

Malibu is weaving down the highway in the desert, passes billboard with motorcycle cop behind it. Cop pulls out behind Malibu.

J. FRANK PARNELL

Forty-niner and his daughter Clementine. Oh my darlin, oh my darlin...

Motorcycle cop pulls the car over, gets off motorcycle and raps on car window.

J. FRANK PARNELL

Clementine Clemen-

COUNTY SHERIFF

Let me see your drivers license.

RADIO

Post ten-eighteen. Post ten-eighteen.

COUNTY SHERIFF

From out of town, hmm? What's you got in the trunk?

J. FRANK PARNELL

oah...you don't want to look in there.

COUNTY SHERIFF

Give me the keys.

The motorcycle cop walks around to the back of the car and opens the trunk. The car has New Mexico license plates KBB-283. In every scene after this when the plates are visible, they will be 127-GBH.

COUNTY SHERIFF

AHHHHHH!

The motorcycle cop gets disintegrated, leaving behind a pair of flaming boots (a reference to the movie Timerider, which was co-written and produced by Mike Nesmith). Parnell watches from side mirror, where we see that the left side of his sunglasses have no lens.

J. FRANK PARNELL

Oh my darlin Clementine, you are lost now gone forever, dreadful sorry Clementine.

Otto and Kevin, in the supermarket, facing cans of generic yellow cling sliced peaches.

KEVIN

Do Do Do De Do De Do De Do De Do Feeling Do De Da Do De Do De Do Feeling seven-up. I'm feeling seven-up. Feeling seven up. I'm feeling seven up. It's a crisp refreshing feeling crystal clear and light. America's drinking seven-up and it sure feels right. Feeling lucky seven.

Otto puts price sticker on Kevin's glasses.

OTTO

Kevin stop singing man.

KEVIN

Feeling seven eleven.

KEVIN

Hum. I wasn't singing guy.

OTTO

I'm standing right next to you and you're fucking (flippin) singing. Cut it out.

KEVIN

Jeeze. Why so tense guy?

MR. HUMPHRIES

Otto?

KEVIN

Mister Humphries!

MR. HUMPHRIES

You were late again this morning. Now normally I'd let it go but it's been brought to my attention that you're not paying attention to the way you space the cans. Many young men of your age in these uncertain times-

MR. HUMPHRIES

Otto! Are you paying attention to me?

LOUIE

Hey! He's talking to you!

Kevin chuckles

Otto grabs Kevin by the front of his shirt, steps around him, and pushes him into the stack of cans (this has been described as a goof but it's clearly just a case of awkward staging used to make the shot work).

Louie pulls his gun.

LOUIE

(Basta!)

KEVIN

You gotta love getting fired from your job in a big way, Otto.

MR. HUMPHRIES

What are you laughing at? Louie, throw him out too.

LOUIE

Come on youworm. Get out of here.

Louie shoves Kevin down aisle where Otto is walking out. Otto takes off his clip-on bow tie and tosses it back towards Louie. Louie twirls his gun and puts it away. Note that the store aisle is lined with nothing but generic products, plain black lettering on white background. All products in movie from now on will have this appearance.

Punks slamdancing to Coup D'etat in the back of a warehouse.

Otto is there slamdancing and Duke walks up, the two of them swing each other around. Behind them, the graffiti on the wall says "Circle Jerks", a band which will appear later in the movie.

OTTO

How you doing dude? When did you get out of the slammer man?

Otto enters bedroom where Debbi is waiting in bed.

DEBBI

What's the difference? ]

OTTO

Huh?

Otto lays back on the bed and puts his hands behind his head.

OTTO

okay

Debbi pulls back his shirt a little and begins kissing his stomach, then stops.

DEBBI

Otto. Otto.

OTTO

What?

DEBBI

Get me another beer.

Otto goes downstairs and there's a party going on. Institutionalized plays in background.

KEVIN

Ow. Cool. Ow. Dammit. I'm supposed to be the host here.

KEVIN

Ow!

Otto returns to the bedroom

OTTO

Debbi honey. I got you a beer.

Otto turns on light and finds Duke there with Debbi.

[OTTO Shit.

DEBBI

Just ignore him Duke he's nothing but a big baby.

DUKE

Turn the fucking light out.]

Otto leaves room just as Kevin arrives and looks in the door.

KEVIN

What are you doing? Nobody supposed to be up here. This is my parent's room.

Dude, nobody supposed to be up here, this is my parent's room.)

[Otto in a vacant lot drinking a beer.

It's early morning and Otto starts walking.

OTTO

Don't want to talk about anything else. We don't want to know. We're just dedicated...to our favorite shows. Saturday night live, Monday night football, Dallas, Jeffersons, Gilligan's island, Flintstones. ]

Otto still walking, but it's light now.

Bud pulls up next to him in a blue sedan.

BUD

Hey kid! (Honk) Hey! Hey kid! Hey! Hey! Are you hard of hearing?

OTTO

What do you want?

BUD

You want to make ten bucks?

OTTO

Fuck you, queer.(Shove off, pervert)

BUD

Now waita minute wait a minute kid you got the wrong idea. Look my old lady is real sick and I got to get her to the hospital, okay?

OTTO

So what? Take her there.

BUD

I can't. I can't leave her car in this bad area. Look I need some helpful soul to drive it for me, okay? She's pregnant. She's with twins. She could drop at any time. All right?

OTTO

Well, uh, how much are you going to give me?

BUD

Fifteen bucks.

OTTO

No. Won't do it for less than twenty.

BUD

Twenty-five. Follow me in my old lady's car. It�s right here. okay?

OTTO

All right... Where's, uh, where's your old lady at?

BUD

Otto gets in the car, a white 4 door Cutlass sedan.

Back in the desert

We begin scene looking through the windshield of a police motorcycle. The windshield of the police motorcycle naturally has a pine tree air freshener hanging from it. We see some people searching around in the desert, most of them in radiation suits, with a local sheriff following a woman in a business suit.
