Drunk Teen Tries to Get Behind the Wheel

At first, it seems few people notice her as she trips on the sidewalk or leans unsteadily against her car door. One woman nearly runs into her, but is so frightened, she turns completely around and walks in the other direction. Still, we see that she eventually calls police once she's, as she described to us later, "a safe distance away."

Two men sitting in a restaurant across the street who saw Elana fall down as she climbed into her car approach her and ask if she's all right. She manages to convince them she's fine, and the men depart.

And then another man who witnessed the same fall decides to take matters into his own hands. At first he jokes with Elana about her current drunken state. Then he tries to reason with her.

He asks her, "Don't you have somebody who you can call? Some friend or somebody who could come and..."

"I'm going to pick up a friend right now. I'm totally fine," she replies.

But then, the man sees an opportunity. When Elana accidentally drops her car keys, the man quickly grabs them and says, "Let me hold on to these."

'You Don't Just Sit There'

Minutes later, he helps her across the street and guides her to a nearby bench.

He tells us, "I knew she wasn't right. At that point, you gotta' step in. It's just, you have to."

When our host asks him why, he replies, "When you can do something, you do something. You don't just sit there and say, well someone else'll do it, not me."

Later that day, we mix things up by first having one of our actors play drunk and the other sober and then having both actors play drunk. How would passersby respond?
