Demolition Daddy

1 - - Listen up! Your usual driver's ed teacher is at the courthouse fighting for his driver's license due to the fallout from the holiday party.
In his defense, the greatest driver in the world couldn't have outrun the cops in his condition.
These are your learner's permits.
Before you get them, I need to know who will be supervising your behind-the-wheel hours.
- Steve? - My dad Stan.
Ah, yes, dads are great.
Mine was an alcoholic.
But the fun kind.
So don't go gettin' all sad on me, Smith.
Next.
Toshi, I'm skipping over you because you refuse to learn English.
Barry? My father's name is Dad! Sounds like a great driver.
And, Snot, who's teaching you? My dad's no longer with us.
No problem, you got a hot mom I mean mom.
Redundant much, Brian? [CHUCKLES.]
Hot mom.
Your daddy's dead.
You're a freeeak.
Good morning, U.

Aah! Good morning, U.
S.

Aww, Schmuley, why you got your head in a poof? Well, I was in driver's ed today, and all the other kids are getting their dads to teach them, and it just reminded me that I don't have a dad Driver's ed?! No sir! Get driving outta your head.
It is too dangerous! There's the fumes, the tires, all the people flippin' the bird! If Dad was here, he'd teach me.
I knew his death would affect my life eventually! Thanks again for taking me driving, Mr.
Tuttle.
And thank you for interrupting me from cold calling people in the phone book for human interaction.
Okay, first, you're gonna wanna fasten your seatbelt.
- [SEATBELT CLICKS.]
- Check your mirrors.
Grip the steering wheel at 10:00 and 2:00.
And now drive to the hospital.
I'm having a heart attack.
- What?! - To the hospital.
I know my body, and it is attacking my heart.
- But I don't know how - Just drive! [ENGINE REVS, TIRES SCREECH.]
I'm going backwards! That's called reverse.
If I survive, I'll teach you forwards.
Whoa-a-a-a-a Boom, bitch.
Don't say "boom bitch" to your father.
It's my learner's permit.
Whaddya say? Will you take me driving? Uh, I'd love to, but something came up.
And what came up is-z-z-z-z-z z-z-z-z-z-z-z - a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a - z-z-z-z-z-z-z [ENGINE STARTS.]
[TIRES SCREECH.]
Haaaayles? Sorry, Steve.
I'm working special detail for Sub Hub.
Driving a truckload of salami down to Florida.
'Sgotta get there or some shit.
But that's perfect.
I can drive when you get tired.
[SIGHS.]
Alright, you can come.
But no bathroom breaks.
You'll pee in a 2007 X Games souvenir cup like the rest of us.
[TIRES SCREECH.]
[GROANS.]
It's family only beyond here.
Is this man your father? No, he's not.
MAN: But I am! [GASPS.]
A man who knew your father.
- You knew my dad? - Dick Keebler.
Good to meetcha, good to meetcha.
Sorry 'bout my sweaty-ass hand.
I got hyperhidrosis.
Feels normal to me I also got hyperglycemia, hypertension, and I'm a hypochondriac.
Doctor says that's the one that's gonna get me.
Pff.
Hey, you think I could dig up an MRI in this joint without talking to anyone? I don't think so.
Were you gonna talk about my dad? Pff.
I was his co-pilot.
My dad was a pilot? Nah.
On the demolition derby circuit.
Cars.
Ever heard of 'em? Pff.
C'mon, I'll tell you about your dad.
Fun fact We were blood brothers.
I gave him hepatitis.
His eyes were the color of mustard.
ROGER: Lanceton Raceway Park.
Home to the demolition derby and the weekly swap meet.
No matter the year, it's always the '70s there.
Your dad, Lonny, drove the Red Rammer.
Damn car was unstoppable.
Pssh.
Famous too.
It was in the movie "Mother, Jugs & Speed.
" SNOT: I haven't seen that.
It was the car that ran that bus full of nuns off the road.
[LAUGHS.]
Betcha remember that scene.
No, I I haven't seen it Good stuff, you remember.
Mr.
Keebler, I'm sorry, but this guy you're describing doesn't sound like the dad I never knew.
Pssh.
The way I saw you haulin' ass in reverse, derby style? You're Lonny's kid, alright.
Pff.
Derby's in your blood.
Derby racing.
In my blood.
Surprised you don't know about him.
Didn't he leave you the Red Rammer when he croaked? All I've got of my dad's is a huge shoe I found in the garage that I think was his.
I wear it around the house sometimes and pretend I have one really big foot.
It's lame, I know.
Nah, that's normal.
I wear my dead mom's heels around the house and pretend I have a big ol' vagina.
- Pff.
- Was my dad any good? The best.
He was always slammin' into everybody.
That sounds bad.
Nah, that's how you win.
Destroy the other cars.
I was your dad's spotter his eyes and ears out there.
[GLASS SHATTERS.]
Car! [GLASS SHATTERS.]
- Car! - [GLASS SHATTERS.]
- Car! - [THUD.]
Holy crap! There she is! Can we just stay focused on my dad? Right, right.
We never lost.
But I lost Lost control of my blood sugar ROGER: Your dad put his foot on the dash to do his signature move, the Skidrokyo Drift.
[TIRES SCREECH.]
[BANG.]
And my blood sugar was tanking.
Did I mention I'm also diabetic? Seven doctors said it's all in my head.
Pff.
I didn't even know there was brain diabetes.
[ENGINE REVS.]
[MUFFLED SHOUTING.]
[BANG, GLASS SHATTERS.]
[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE.]
Lonny injured his neck so bad, he couldn't turn his head to the right to drive in reverse.
- SNOT: So he had to quit.
- Nope.
Went to England to race.
Steering wheels are on the other side over there.
Pff.
- So that's why he left us.
- [MRI BEEPING.]
Mr.
Keebler, I'd like to know more about my dad.
- Pff.
- Is "Pff" a bad thing? - [WHIRS.]
- It can be.
That was a good one, though.
I'm gonna do more than tell you about your dad, I'm gonna teach you to be like him.
Teach you how to derby.
This is gonna be so cool! I'll bring Dad's big shoe! Pff.
That was a bad "Pff.
" Shoe stays at home.
Pff.
That one means I'm thirsty.
[BIRDS CHIRPING.]
- [RADIO CRACKLES.]
- This is Headband Dynamite, I'm sittin' bumpy at a cardboard red Popsicle, over.
MAN: [THROUGH CB RADIO.]
That is a big 10-4, Headband! Pavement Pouncer here, over! Whoa, this works? I was just goofin'! Hayley?! It says that the salami we're transporting is highly explosive! Well, the chemicals in the preservatives are pretty volatile.
And all that salami's loose back there, just slices floppin' around.
Super illegal.
But if you think about it, aren't we all just loose slices floppin' around? Uh take 193 South.
Nope.
Gotta do all back roads.
Can't risk getting pulled over.
Plus, we get to hit up some rural strip clubs.
Those backwoods beauties have bushes that'll knock your teeth out.
[HORN BLARES.]
[TIRES HISS.]
Schmuley, you're back! I was so worried about you.
Worried I'd find out Dad was a derby driver? [GASPS.]
Keebla.
That's right, it was Keebler! And I'm finally hearing stories about Dad! Which I never get from you! I don't want you hanging out with that Keebla.
I'm doing more than hanging out with him.
I'm learning to drive from him.
[CAR HORN PLAYS "LA CUCARACHA" IN DISTANCE.]
I think we can all guess whose horn that is.
[DOOR OPENS, SLAMS.]
[HORN CONTINUES.]
Welcome to my Miata.
This is James.
James, Snot.
I'm driving for Uber Two-Seater.
And before you say that's not a thing, it's not.
Way to go, James, you blew it.
Kid saw right through you.
Just get out.
- See you tomorrow, James! - [ENGINE STARTS.]
I know it's not a great first impression, but what do you think of James? So this is Raceway Park.
Where my dad used to derby.
Yep.
And he used to do his derbyin' with the Derby Donkeys.
Hey, Donkeys, this here's Lonny Lonstein's poo stain.
[SNIFFS.]
Well, I'll be, stinks just like Lonny! Just like Lonny.
Got Lonny's ugly smile too! Ugly smile too.
'Course, Lonny didn't repeat everything like some damn trick bird.
Let's get away from this guy.
So, kid, if I'm gonna train ya, we're gonna need a car.
You really don't know what happened to the Red Rammer, huh? No idea.
Wh-What's happening? I thought we were gonna train.
Soon, soon.
Need a little sex first.
Hold my clothes like your daddy used to.
I won't make it 10 feet in this garage before I'm deep-doggin' a derby daisy.
SNOT: [MUFFLED.]
Whoa.
Big hat.
[BIRDS CHIRPING.]
[GRUNTING.]
Good.
You're still here.
'Cause you haven't started training me! You've been having sex all night Oh, you heard that, did you? [EXHALES.]
I can get pretty loud.
C'mon.
Now it's time.
- [KEYBOARD CLACKING.]

I thought you said it was time.
Soon, soon.
Just havin' a look at WebMD.

[GEAR CRANKS.]
[WHEELS HISS.]

Oh, thank God.
What the hell?! [GROANS.]
I'm saved! [GRUNTING.]
Why does everyone hate this rope so much?! [ENGINE REVS, TIRES SCREECH.]
If this cone was a car, you'd've smashed it.
It's no Rammer, but you're gonna kick ass in the Miata Masher.
You haven't even taught me the Skidrokyo Drift.
You really think I'm ready to derby? 'Bout fifty-fifty.
Maybe fofty-fofty.
But fofty-fofty's not a real number Yeah, okay, then I'll say fifty-fifty.
Vespa's been ridin' my ass.
[TIRES SCREECH.]
[TAP.]
[BIRDS CHIRPING.]
Wheels are shot and the front fell! Pff.
What about the derby?! Can't do it without a car.
Okay, guy, let's see your insurance info.
Uh-huh.
Uh, do you wanna give me yours? My insurance is that I now know where you live.
And if I get so much as one phone call from GEICO, I will burn your house to the ground 429 Shippey Lane [STAMMERS.]
Wait, 492? Shippey doesn't sound right, either No! [PANTING.]
Something's zapping me.
[KEYBOARD CLACKING.]
Well, Snot, the results are in.
Your old pal's got the Muscular Dystrophy.
How about instead of looking up symptoms we find another derby car? That's a great idea, why don't you try to find the Red Rammer like I've been telling you to! Dick, I gotta remind you to keep your voice down.
[HUSHED.]
I got the dystrophy, Barbara.

And this one won't find the Red Rammer like I've been tellin' him.
In any case, [HUSHED.]
