Ed: you know that’s fuckin stupid right, Jamacas dangerous

 

CUT TO CU: Jim gives a long sigh

 

Jim: yeah I know that now but of course it seemed like a fantastic idea at the time.  It turned to be maroon territory too.

 

CUT TO MS: Ed looks at Jim curiously

 

Ed: What does that mean?

 

CUT TO CU: Jim turns and smiles.

Jim: Marroons are kinda like clans that are all descendants of escaped slaves which basically means they’re tough as nails.

 

CUT TO MS: Ed looking incredulously at Jim. 

 

Ed: what did they fuck you up or something?

 

CUT TO CU: Jim looks forward

 

Jim: I walk into the jungle right and after a few minutes I see a little clearing and when I walk into it they are like 5 guys chillin, smoking cheba and they all have machetes

Ed:  So were they like some crazy rastas or what?

 

 

 

 

 

CU JIM WITH EYEBROW RAISED:

JIM: They were not friendly and actually ended up robbing me.

CU ED LOOKING CURIOUS:

ED: that sucks dude. Anything good happen in Jamaica?

MS BOTH ED AND JIM:

JIM: Well they got me real high before they robbed me plus I only had ten bucks so aside from the whole being threatened with machetes thing, really wasn’t a bad transaction.

CU ED:  Amazed

ED: has anyone ever told you you’re a lunatic?

CU JIM: smiling

Jim:  Not infrequently
