"I picked up a hitchhiker. Have you ever picked up a hitchhiker, Bella?"
When Bella told him that she didn't want to "get murdered", Mike replied, "As a man, I don't fear it."
Then he tried to convince the ladies that picking up a hitchhiker was totally safe, by referring to the film Thelma and Louise.
"If you were with a girlfriend? Think Thelma and Louise... there's a guy on the side of the road with a cowboy hat... so a Brad Pitt-like guy is standing on the side of the road, he's got the shirt off, a little bit of sweat on the chest, the tight jeans - what, are you just going to drive past him?"
Does Mike not remember Thelma and Louise is a film about attempted rape, murder, concealing crimes and suicide?
When Bella continued to respond with "no," Mike wondered why she wouldn't pick up a good-looking man with his "thumb out and a sign to where you are going."
But she remained defiant. "If I see a hitchhiker I usually lock my doors."
