GROVER
Guys, we got this
You ain't shot this
Yo, I know your train of thought is
That there ain't no way in Hades that we’ll win

All your worries
Come in flurries
But we bested freakin’ Furies!
Look how far we’ve come, we can't give in

It’s one foot forward at a time
Dust off all that grit and grime
We still got a lot left to do

‘Cause people are counting on us
And I'm counting on you

CONDUCTOR (spoken)
All aboard!

GROVER
Drive
Just drive
Stay ahead
Stay ahead
Stay alive

We ain't got no time for moping
When we’re working and we’re coping
So pedal to the metal and drive!

CONDUCTOR (spoken)
St. Louis, everybody off!

ANNABETH (spoken)
Look! The Gateway Arch!

PERCY (spoken)
Whoa. Look! A lady with a puppy! Aw, is that a Chihuahua? Aw, hey lil– whoa!

ECHIDNA (spoken)
(laughing) It's a chimera!

ANNABETH
That was freaky!

PERCY
That was scary!

GROVER
Yo, guys, are you aware
We keep surviving every creepy crazy thing

TRACTOR GUY (spoken)
Hop on my tractor!

PERCY, ANNABETH, GROVER
Like an arrow from Orion
Keep on straight and keep on tryin’
No Fates are ever gonna cut our string

REPORTER (spoken)
As you can see, Bob, we’ve got thunder and flooding and hurricane level winds.
We urge all citizens to stay off the road, and don’t–

PERCY, ANNABETH, GROVER
Drive
Just drive

Stay ahead
Stay ahead
And stay alive

The weather may be stormy
But the road is still before me
So pedal to the metal and drive!

TRACTOR GUY (spoken)
Bye kids!

ANNABETH (spoken)
Okay, here's the problem. Public transportation is suspended due to the storm,
and if we get on a plane, Zeus will strike us right out of the sky.

PERCY (spoken)
Do we have enough drachmas for an Uber?

GROVER (spoken)
We don't even have enough drachmas for a cheeseburger!

PERCY (spoken)
If you hadn't bought all those dam snacks–

GROVER (spoken)
Uh, it was the Hoover Dam, and I was hungry!

PERCY, ANNABETH, GROVER (spoken)
(indistinct arguing)

PERCY (spoken)
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Why are we fighting?

ARES (spoken)
I have that effect.
Ares, god of war. Maybe you've met my daughter - Clarisse?
Wh-o-oa, whoa, relax, I come in peace! I hear you runts are headed to Hades,
but you'll never make it on public transportation. I can take you as far as Vegas.
Y’all cool with motorcycles, right?

PERCY (spoken)
What do you think? Can we trust this guy?

GROVER
It’s one foot forward at a time?

PERCY
Dust off all that grit and grime?

ANNABETH
We still–

PERCY, ANNABETH, GROVER
Got a lot left to do

‘Cause people are counting on us
And I'm counting on you

Drive
Just drive

Stay ahead
Stay ahead
And stay alive

ARES
The road, it offers freedom
As for rules, hell, we don't need 'em!

ALL
So pedal to the metal and drive!

PERCY
I never dreamed that I could do this
Never felt like I was worth a damn
But I, I'm sorta getting through this
I mean, wha? I mean, look at where I am!

ARES (spoken)
Vegas, baby! This is where I get off.

GROVER (spoken)
That guy is so cool.

ANNABETH (spoken)
Okay, gang, we’ll be in LA tomorrow. But tonight, we need a place to sleep.

PERCY (spoken)
How about here? The Lotus Hotel.

ANNABETH (spoken)
Pssh, you're joking, right? In The Odyssey, if you went to sleep in a lotus bed,
one night could last one hundred years!

PERCY (spoken)
Uh, I'm sure that's irrelevant. Um, excuse me miss, how long have you been at this hotel?

BIANCA DI ANGELO (spoken)
Why, my brother and I arrived just yesterday;
May 1st... 1939!

PERCY (spoken)
Uh, we can sleep on the road

PERCY, ANNABETH, GROVER
Drive
Just drive

Stay ahead
And don't get dead
And stay alive

GROVER
With the wind upon our faces
We’re getting all the places

ANNABETH
No major fender benders
Now we’re looking like contenders

PERCY
The Oracle can can it
I'll save my mom and save the planet

PERCY, ANNABETH, GROVER
So pedal to the metal and–

PERCY (spoken)
Oh look, a bus to Los Angeles!

ANNABETH (spoken)
Are you sure that's a good idea?

PERCY (spoken)
This one we just won't blow up!

GROVER
Ha!

PERCY, ANNABETH, GROVER
And drive!
