1:00 AM

Max: Video games are awesome eh?
Matt: Yeah, SO awesome!
Max: Yeah, SO AWESOME!

1:30 AM

Max: Man, my head is pounding. Do you have any Tylenol?
Matt: Nope.
Max: Then maybe I'll just eat some macaroni.
Matt: That's what I'd do.
Max: Video games are awesome.
Matt: Yeah, so awesome.

2:00 AM

Max: I don't have any milk and my head is still pounding. I actually feel kind of nauseous.
Matt: Just use extra butter.
Max: Yeah. Good call.

2:15 AM

Max: Ya know why I love Macaroni.
Matt: Why?
Max: Cause' you don't have to chew.
Matt: Video games are awe...
Max: I know, so awesome.

2:30 AM

Max: Man, the macaroni helped for a bit. But my headache is coming back. Will you fund an expedition to the Seven-Eleven in search of tylenol?
Matt: Not only will I fund it, I will take charge and lead the team.
Max: Ow...My head.

2:35 AM (En route)

(Mostly silence)
Matt: (Incoherent mumbling about video games)
Max: (Clutching head) I really feel bad man. I mean, its been a while since I've felt this bad. I'm scared man.

2:40 AM

Max: So there is regular, extra-Strength, and ultra-relief.
Matt: I say ultra-relief.
Max: Why?
Matt: Mostly because of the word Ultra. That, and the embossed gold font really makes you think of power, strength, and fast acting relief.
Max: You've convinced me.
Matt: Sir, one bottle of ultra-relief EZ tab tylenol if you please. Yeah, that one. The one with the embossed gold font.

2:45 AM

Max: I used to be able to swallow pills without water. Here goes. (Gagging) Ok, that didn't work. I think I'm going to throw up.
Matt: (Takes a step back) That sucks.
Max: Maybe not. Lets keep going.

2:46 AM

Max: Ok, I am going to throw up. (Macaroni that looks as if it has just been made, without milk, ejects cleanly from Max's mouth into the middle of the road as a car with headlights made for a search helicopter barrels down on the puking misfit)
Matt: (From 20 feet away) Oh man.
Max: Well, that was easy. Lets go play video games. I feel much better.
Matt: Yeah, I was thinkin' about video games actually.
Max: Weird.

3:00 AM

Max: Ya know what. I'm gonna see whats on TV.
Matt: Alright. Its your choice man.
Max: (Switching on the TV) (Thinking to himself) Nudity and Violence eh? Nice. (The movie starts) Oh shit. Lucas Hartnett. I mean, Josh Rizoli. Whatever. (The movie sucks)
Matt: I ain't never gonna stop playing video games. Never.

3:30 AM

(Katie lies in her bed at home. Sleeping like a baby. A baby that doesn't have to put up with the snoring, if only for one night)

(Max is passed out on the floor, snoring loudly, bathed in the glow of the TV. An empty bottle of pills lies at his feet)

(Matt is passed out in his computer chair, bathed in the glow of his monitor. His mouse dangles freely in the air off his desk.)

(John Rambo walks from room to room pausing to bat at the mouse. She looks at Matt, walks into Max's room, looks at Max, then rolls her eyes)
