You seem to have forgotten a crucial episode which explains exactly how the
two disciples managed to 'meat' a stranger on the road--their Civic broke
down midjourney. Radiator burst or somesuch because of the intense heat...
they were, afterall, crossing a mid-eastern desert, etc.
The stranger was actually a stranded hitchhiker who offered to help the
forlorn disciples while they went off to nab lunch from a nearby Taco Bell.
The same stranger, however, fixed the radiator before its owners got back
and rather impolitely decided to take off--prompting the burrito-chewing
Cleopas to exclaim upon return the time-honored expression of beleaguerment:
"Dude, where's my car?!"
