The departures terminal of the San Jose Mineta International Airport.
ED is walking with WES.
WES is pulling a wheeled suitcase and has a duffel bag over his shoulder.
WES stops at the escalator.
ED: You have to check in.
WES: I did.
ED: We just got here.
WES points to his phone.
ED: You could do that there.
WES: Did it before I went to bed.
ED: That makes no sense.
ED: Do you have your boarding pass?
WES points to his phone again.
ED: There too?
ED: What would you do if you lost that?
WES: My phone?
WES: Cry. Probably. Then buy a new phone.
ED: So you’ve got everything.
WES: I think so.
ED: Didn’t forget anything?
WES: If I did, I’ve forgotten.
WES starts to board the escalator up to the security checkpoint.
WES: Yeah, dad?
ED: Be careful in Oregon. There are a lot of racists there.
WES: You know Dad, you say that no matter where I’m travelling.
ED: I say it when it’s true.
WES: You’re right. Alright, see you next month Dad.
WES steps onto the escalator.
ED watches WES ascend.
