Dad: And that is how you make pepsi!
Son: Really? Is that all there is to it?
"sound of revving engine"
Son: Dad! Slow down!
Dad: What? I'm just having a bit of fun.
Some time later...
"engine stops running"
Dad: This looks like a good place to rest!
Son: Why here?
Dad: It's as good as any other place and besides it's only gonna be a few minutes before we're back on the road!
Son: No, really why a hill?
Dad: It has a great view!
Son: Of what?
Dad: I dunno. Well c'mon!
The sound of plodding feet approach the top of the hill and discover a single, lonely tree on top.
Dad: That's good. It can shade us from the - oh. Looks like a storm is coming.
Son: We better get back in the car then.
Dad: In a couple of minutes. Just enjoy the view.
Son: It's quite nice.
Dad: Yes. Yes it is, isn't it?
Son: All around the mulberry bush, the rabbit chased the weasel. The rabbit thought 'twas all in-
Dad: What the hell are you doing?
Son: Singing a nursery rhyme.
Dad: I know that but why?
Son: Cause it's part of childhood and I'm just remembering it.
Dad: Oh. Mmkay.
Dad: Also, it's monkey chased the weasel not the rabbit alright?
Son:All around the mulberry bush, the monkey chased the weasel. The monkey thought HA!
lightning strikes Dad and he keels over dead.
"son shakes fist"
Son: Damn you Jesus!
Voice: I am not Jesus. I am Zeus.
Son: King of Olympians?
"Zeus rolls his eyes"
Zeus: Yes, that Zeus. I'm sorry about your father but you severly startled me.
Son: I'm sorry.
Zeus: No need for apologies but unfortunately, this is a secret that must be kept until the right time comes.
Son: Why is that so unfortunate?
Zeus: Because I have to kill you to keep the secret.
Son: What? C-c-couldn't you just wipe my memory or something?
Zeus: We Olympians do not have such abilities.
Son: "sigh" When will the right time come then?
Zeus: It will come when it comes.
Son: That dosen't make any sense.
Zeus: It dosen't have to be.
Zeus: I must now keep the secret of our existence away from mortals for now but you will need our assistance someday and we cannot let the secret be seen by prying eyes.
Son: I'm ready to die now.
"lightning strikes son and dies instantly"
"Zeus walks back over to his TV and resumes munching on his chips from his bottomless chip bag."
Zeus: "laughs" I loves killin' people.
