  • Chris explains that he lost his phone in some ridiculous manner and didn't write down Jackie's number.
  • Chris again demands to speak with Jackie, reminding his agent that he's the black Owen Wilson. No, that Owen Wilson is the white Chris Tucker.
  • Chris starts to pitch Rush Hour 4 to the reluctant agent.
  • Chris is clearly writing the script as he goes along.
  • Chris pleads to speak to Jackie, telling his agent how he needs this movie, and describing a ridiculous series of events that now result in his desperation.
  • The conversation is documented and published on YouTube.
  • Fanboys start a petition to film and release Rush Hour 4 per Chris's rambling creative direction.

After all-but-one solider passes thru, the higher ranking officer stops the line. "Hold-on, pal". You see the ranking officer receive some-sort of message from his headset. Listening... Listening. He then tells the last remaining solider in line, "Sorry, but Bush just sent in new orders. Troop withdrawal has been putt on hold. You're going to have to go back." "What!" says the solider. "But, what about the other guys on the plane." "Sorry, they're grandfathered in", says the ranking officer. Solider replies, "I can't believe my luck."
