“Help me!” screams Diana, who then jumps on the hood of Ed’s parked Toyota.
Diana scrambles around the passenger side of the car, yanks the door open, and climbs into the seat.
“Go! Go! GO!” she yells. The tall, bearded Iranian with epaulets on his jacket lands on the hood of Ed’s car, holding a revolver in his right hand.
Ed turns the key in the ignition one more time, and the car finally starts. Ed puts the car in reverse, knocking the Iranian off the hood. Diana screams. Okin puts the car in drive and races away from the henchmen.
The Iranians yell at each other, then attempt to climb back up over the railing of the parking garage.
Ed continues to drive toward the parking garage exit.
“Where’s a cop?” he asks, looking for the exit.
“Just get us out!” replies Diana. They pass an orange van that’s parked near the garage exit.
As the Mercedes reaches the same parking level as the Toyota, the orange van backs up, blocking the Mercedes, which crashes into the van.
Five bikers climb out of the van as the Iranians get out of the Mercedes. It’s an impasse.
Back in the Toyota, Ed spots the toll booth.
“Here we go,” says Ed, aiming for the single open tollbooth to the right of the toll plaza.
The toll plaza is in front of LAX’s famed Theme Building. Ed rolls his window down.
“Hey, hey!” shouts Ed at the toll booth operator and an LAPD officer.
“No, no, don’t!” says Diana.
“No, no, it’s okay,” replies Ed. “Calm down.” Ed looks at the LAPD officer. “Officer,” he begins.
“No, please,” whispers Diana.
“What?” says the LAPD officer.
