Stuntman gets down and dirty falling off roofs, getting kicked around, all in the name of fun

Wildcat: Hi, my name's Nathan and you're On the Spot.

Hicks: Jonathan. How's it going?

Wildcat: Why are you all dirty, Jonathan?

Hicks: I have a job in Tucson. And it requires me to get dirty.

Wildcat: Oh, okay. I thought you might be a rugby player, or football. Are you a student here?

Hicks: Yep.

Wildcat: Where you off to right now?

Hicks: Just back to my dorm.

Wildcat: [Pointing to bottle in Jonathan's hand] Is that apple juice?

Hicks: It's Lipton green tea with honey. That's what it is.

Wildcat: Alright. So let's talk rocks.

Hicks: Rocks?

Wildcat: Yeah. Pebbles, stones, boulders which do you prefer?

Hicks: I'm a stone man myself.

Wildcat: Why?

Hicks: I don't know. Boulders, you know, you can't really do much with them. And pebbles, they're just a little too small.

Wildcat: There's nothing like a good pebble for me. And I like Fruity Pebbles. Do you enjoy cereal? Do you like hot or cold cereal?

Hicks: I like cold cereal.

Wildcat: So what's your job?

Hicks: I'm a stunt man.

Wildcat: For what?

Hicks: Pinnacle Peak and Trail Dust Town. Do you know where that is?

Wildcat: Yeah. Is that why you're all dirty? You, like, fall off of roofs and get dirt all over your shirt?

Hicks: Yeah. And I roll around and get punched and kicked.

Wildcat: That is so awesome. I wish I could do that.

Hicks: I enjoy it. I just got the job too, so I'm pretty excited about it.

Wildcat: Will they accept me or do you have to have qualifications?

Hicks: Nope. You just got to be willing to throw yourself around.
