ALL I HOPE FORIS A NICE, QUIET RIDE...

LEXINGTONAND WILSHIRE, PLEASE.

BUT THERE REALLY IS NO EASY WAYTO ASK FOR THAT.

UH, NATHAN.

UM, SORRY,

I DON'T REALLY WANNA HAVEA CONVERSATION RIGHT NOW.

IT'S ALWAYS BEENAN AWKWARD SITUATION FOR ME.

THAT'S WHY I DEVISEDA SOLUTION AND BROUGHT IT

TO STRUGGLING LOS ANGELESTAXI COMPANY INDEPENDENT CAB,

WHERE I MET WITH PRESIDENTNETTABI AHMED.

ALL I'M SUGGESTINGIS YOU MAKE IT EASY

FOR THE CUSTOMERTO DECIDE

IF HE WANTS A CONVERSATIONOR NOT

AND EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTSTO TALK ABOUT.

- BUT YOU CANNOTASK SOMEBODY,

"DO YOU HAVE--DO YOU WANNA HAVEA CONVERSATION OR NOT?"

- UNTIL NOW.THE PLAN--

A TOUCH SCREEN SYSTEMTHAT WILL ALLOW THE CUSTOMER

TO DISCREETLY COMMUNICATETO THE DRIVER

WHETHER OR NOTHE WANTS A CONVERSATION.

AND IF HE DOES,HE'LL ACTUALLY BE ABLE

TO SELECT THE TOPICHE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT.

- THE IDEA,I ACCEPT IT RIGHT NOW,

BUT I NEEDTO TEST IT,

NOT--NOT ONLYFOR YOUR DOCUMENTARY

OR FOR YOUR MOVIE,BUT FOR THE BUSINESS ITSELF.

- BEFORE COMMITTINGTO ANYTHING,

NETTABI WANTED ME TO DOA TRIAL RUN

WITH ONEOF HIS DRIVERS--REUBEN.

ALONG WITH REUBEN'S HOME COUNTRYOF ARMENIA,

I PICKED THREE MORE MAINSTREAMCONVERSATION TOPICS

FOR CUSTOMERSTO CHOOSE FROM

AND TOOK OUT SOME BOOKSFROM THE LIBRARY

SO THAT REUBENCOULD STUDY UP ON THEM.

YOU PROMISEYOU'LL READ THESE?

- I PROMISE, YEAH.- OKAY.

'CAUSE IT'S VERY IMPORTANT.- OKAY.

- YOU KNOW, I WANNA LOOK GOODFOR YOUR BOSS.

- OKAY.

- AFTER GIVING REUBEN A WEEKTO STUDY,

WE HAD OUR TOUCH SCREEN SYSTEMINSTALLED IN HIS CAB,

AND IT WAS TIME TO GO PICK UPSOME CUSTOMERS.

- SANTA MONICAAND WILTON, PLEASE.

- NO PROBLEM.
