Conversation with Matt in the car after grocery shopping at Target.
INT - CAR: Thursday afternoon Michael Jackson's music is playing on every radio station after news of his death.
Mindy: I was totally shocked when I heard that.
Matt: Yeah, I know.
Mindy: Although, I guess I shouldn't be. That dude had some serious problems.
Mindy: I still remember exactly where I was when I saw that Thriller video for the first time. I was like, Holy Shit!
Mindy: Hey, what would you do if you knew you were going to die at 50?
Matt: Um, I don't know.
Mindy: Would you do anything different?
Matt: Oh yeah, of course.
Matt spends a minute thinking: I don't know.
Mindy: But you would do something different?
Mindy: What if you knew you were going to die in 5 years? Then what would you do?
Matt: I would take out a huge life insurance policy.
Mindy: That's a good idea.
Matt: Especially if you knew five years in advance.
Mindy: Then what?
Matt: I'd quit my job and run up a bunch of debt.
Mindy (laughing): Really?
Matt: Oh yeah. I wouldn't care.
Mindy: Wouldn't I have to pay for it? When you're dead?
Matt: Ah, but that's what the insurance policy is for.
Mindy: It better be a big one then.
Matt: Oh yeah, the biggest one I could find.
Mindy: Well, you could do that now. If you wanted to. Nobody's stopping you.
Mindy: We should just sell all our shit and travel.
Matt: Yeah. Wander around. I always wanted to do that. Just like the dude on Kung-Fu.
Mindy: Yeah. Oh man, David Carradine just died too. I guess he was a kinky perv.
Matt: Yeah, that sucks.
Mindy: Being a perv?
Matt: No, that would be embarrassing to die like that.
Mindy: Of course, if you were dead, you wouldn't care what anyone thought.
Mindy: I guess money really can't buy happiness.
Matt: But if I had a lot of money I could quit working. And that would make me happy.
Mindy: How much would we need to quit working?
Matt: For how long?
Mindy: Forever... Five million?
Matt: Oh yeah. Definitely. You could live off the interest.
Mindy: As long as you didn't go crazy. You could easily go through it if you were stupid.
Matt: Yeah. You can't be stupid.
Mindy: I think I can do it.
Matt: What? Make 5 million or not be stupid.
Mindy: The first part.
