Crash - Chapter 1 from 00:01:00 to 00:03:40:

Graham
It's the sense of touch.
[Pause]

Ria
What?

Graham
[Laughing]
Any real city, you walk, you know, you brush past people, people bump into you.
In L.A., nobody touches you. [Pause] Always behind this metal and glass.
I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other just so we can feel something.
[Pause]

Police Officer
You guys OK?
[Pause]

Ria
I think he hit his head.

Graham
You don't think that's true?

Police Officer
Stay in your car.

Ria
Graham,
I think we got rear-ended.
I think we spun around twice and somewhere in there one of us lost a frame of reference.
And I'm gonna go look for it.
