WAR IN SPRING GARDENS

FADE IN:

EXT. PAINT BALL RANCH - DAY
                                                            
A run down house in the middle of a clearing. Surrounding
the house are a few trees and three broken down cars. The
house is so run down, it looks like something you would find
in poorest parts of the south.
                                                            
Five young men are hiding behind a near by trees. A red
paint ball is shot from the house and hits the tree next to
JAKE WATERS.
                                                            
JAKE WATERS, 23 years old, very handsome and well built.
JAKE is the leader of the group. He adjust the hands free
radio strapped to his head.
                                                            
                       JAKE
That was close.
                                                            
CHRIS PAGE, 23 years old, he turns from the tree next to
Jake. CHRIS PAGE could almost be JAKE'S brother. They look
very much alike, except for one difference. CHRIS wears
glasses.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Do you have a plan? Tell me you
have a plan?
                                                            
Jake peeks from around the tree but he is turned back by
three paint balls that almost hit his face. Chris pulls out
a mirror attached to a small pole. He uses it to peek
around the tree.
                                                            
The image in the mirror is another young man with a paint
ball rifle.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I see a rifle.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Do you see anything else?
                                                            
The mirror is shot out of his hand.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
No.
                                                            
ALEX KITNER, 22 years old, Eastern European, very handsome,
looks like he stepped off the pages of GQ magazine. However,

2.

when he speaks English, he sounds like Drago from Rocky IV.
He pulls out a monster sized paint ball machine gun. Alex
comes out from behind the tree he is hiding behind and fires
at the house.
                                                            
The front of the house is splattered with twenty paint
balls. Some of the paint balls fly into the house though
the open windows.
                                                            
                       ALEX
Someone come up with idea.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Cover me with that beast of yours
                                                            
Alex comes out from behind the tree again, however, before
Chris can move. Jake runs towards the house.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What is he doing?
                                                            
Jake runs up towards the side of the house and ducks down
low so, no one inside the house can see him.

young men are stationed next to the other windows in the
house. Each one of them is holding a paint ball gun.
                                                            
Down the hallway in a back room a woman is tied to a chair.
She looks scared.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Here he comes.
                                                            
Everyone gets their guns ready.
                                                            
                       DAVID

                       ERIC
I'm going.
                                                            
Eric comes out from behind the tree firing his guns as he
runs to the car that Hector is hiding behind. The front
door to the house opens and David fires at Eric.

                       JAMES
You will come across everything in

All the guards start to laugh.
                                                            
                       JAMES

She is out of place working at a fast food restaurant.
                                                            
                       JAKE

standing at the register. She points to the four security
guards, he nods his head.

BRENDA puts the tray down in front of the security guards.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Hi guys. Hungry?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Yes we are, thank you.
                                                            
The three guards attack the food like a pack of wild dogs.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Thank you for the food. Just keep
your hands and feet away from
there mouths

Alex, Chris, and Eric at the same time yell and wave Thanks
Mr. Lee!!!' Mr Lee waves back.
                                                            
                       JAKE
You won't get into any trouble
being over here, will you?
                                                            
                       BRENDA
No...I'm on my break.
                                                            
Chris gets up and pulls a chair from a near by table and
puts it with their table.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Good, why don't you have lunch
with us.
                                                            
Brenda sits down next to Jake.
                                                            
                       ALEX
No soy sauce. No..I can't eat,
without soy sauce.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Oh, am sorry, I'll get you some.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
His food is fine.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Jake, how is your food?
                                                            

10.

                       JAKE

Brenda starts to play with her hair. She moves a little
closer to Jake.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Oh man.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
What?
                                                            
Alex and Eric start to laugh.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Oh man, I forgot to feed my dog.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Oh...poor thing.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
He'll be okay. He was getting
fat.
                                                            
Chris leans back in his chair so Brenda can't see him. He
gives Jake a look like, he's telling him to go for it.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Brenda, do you have a boyfriend?
                                                            
                       BRENDA
You know I don't. Why?
                                                            
                       ALEX
He wants to ask you out, but he's
to chicken shit to ask you. Now
can I have the soy sauce?
                                                            
Chris puts his hands over his face.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Is this true? Because, I'll go
out with you.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Would you like to have dinner or
something.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Yes!!
                                                            
Eric puts his head down.
                                                            

11.

                       ERIC
Damn your lucky.

                       BRENDA
Okay!! I'll be right there!!
                                                            
Before she stands up and walks back to work she kisses Jake
on the lips. She walks back to the side door of the
restaurant and seems to have a little more wiggle to her
walk. The guards watch her walk back and go crazy.

anyone right now.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
It's because you're gay.
                                                            
                       JAKE

on every part of the shopping center. James is watching
Jake and Chris.
                                                            
                       JAMES
They get paid to stand around.
                                                            
James puts on the radio headset.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Jake...Chris...you too don't get
paid to stand around and look

One day you're going to get us
busted.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
He doesn't know what the fuck we

he sees on the monitors. Right
now, I see a guy that looks like a
gang member, that makes him a
suspect.
                                                            
Jake and Chris watch the young man dressed like a gang
member looking around at the different shops.
                                                            
                       JAKE

everyone that dresses like a gang
memmber is a gang member.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
If it looks like a duck, and walks
like a duck, and fucking cracks
like a duck. It's a fucking duck.
      (pause)
Are you going to tell what happen
to you? Who in the hell made you
gay?
                                                            
                       JAKE
Fuck. I don't fucking believe
you.
                                                            
Jake leans over the glass rail as if he is going to jump
off.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Why is this such a big deal to
you?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I'm just trying to understand why
you don't date. You don't even
look twice at a piece of ass like
Brenda. There has to be something
wrong with you. Oh wait, I
remember, your fucking gay.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Have you ever been in love? I
mean really in love?

hands.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Yeah, sure...I guess.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I'm talking about where all you
think of is this person, all the
time. When you wake up and when
you go to bed. You just think of
her.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Maybe.
      (thinks)
No... not really.

A house party is in full swing. The music is loud and
everyone is having a good time. Jake walks through the
crowd of people.
                                                            
                       JAKE (V.O.)
I was invited to this house party
that one of the department stores
was having. I've been working
here for a month already.
                                                            
Jake walks passed a very beautiful blond woman. She is not
supermodel beautiful, however, their is something about how
she moves and how she carries herself. Her body has just
the right curves.
                                                            
                       JAKE (V.O.)
I didn't know this party would
change my life.
                                                            
The blond follows Jake thought the crowd. She watches as he
grabs a beer from the refrigerator and sits down.
                                                            
Jake looks up from where he is sitting. To see ALITA SMITH
walking towards him.
                                                            
                       JAKE (V.O.)
It is when I first met Alita
Smith. She had just turned
twenty-one.

Alita grabs Jake by the hand and leads him to the living
room where everyone is dancing. She dances with him. She
reaches down and takes off her shoes and tosses them towards
a near by wall.

                       ALITA
That's a sexy name.
                                                            
Alita puts her arms around Jake and kisses him on the lips.
                                                            
                       ALITA
You have soft lips. You don't
mind that I kissed you do you?
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (Surprised)
No...that was great. You can do
it again if you want.
                                                            
LATER
                                                            
Jake and Alita are sitting in the back yard by the lighted
pool.
                                                            
                       JAKE (V.O.)
I had never been with anyone like
her before. That summer we were
together all the time.
                                                            
                       CHRIS (V.O.)
Wow..she sounds horrible. I don't
get it.
                                                            
                       JAKE (V.O.)
I'm not finished.
                                                            
The backyard is empty except for Jake and Alita. They
make-out hot and heavy.
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (Pulling away)
Are you sure I'm not going to
fast?
                                                            
Alita takes Jake's hand and puts it into her blouse so he
can touch her breast.
                                                            

17.

                       JAKE
Just checking.
                                                            
Alita looks around the empty back yard. She then unbuttons
her top to expose her breast.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Someone's gonna see us.
                                                            
                       ALITA
So what if they do.
                                                            
Alita and Jake keep make out. Alita now takes off her top
and tries to take Jake's pants off.

MONTAGE

there chairs trying to get a better look at her.

Jake and Alita are at the beach. He is busy putting sun tan
lotion on her back. Jake is rubbing her back and biting his
lip. She turns around and kisses Jake long and hard.

There is no one around. Alita lifts up her mini skirt and
has sex with Jake inside the theater. Alita screams and
Jake has to put his hand over her mouth to keep her quiet.

Jake and Alita are just talking at one of the tables in the
food court. He is holding her hand across the table.
                                                            
                       JAKE (V.O.)

are talking and drinking. He keeps looking around for
Alita.
                                                            
                       JAKE (V.O.)
I was afraid to keep looking
because of stories I have heard
about Alita.
                                                            
                       CHRIS (V.O.)
What kind of stories?
                                                            
Jake talks to one of the girls at the party. She shakes her
head, Jake walks away from her and her friend and they start
to laugh.
                                                            
                       JAKE (V.O.)
Everyone knew what was going on
but me. It was like a big joke. I
was beginning to think the stories
about Alita were true.
                                                            
Jake walks up the stairs towards the bedrooms. He stops at
one of the door and puts his ear to it.
                                                            
                       JAKE (V.O.)
That she is the biggest whore at
Spring Gardens.

sex with Shawn in a very major way on his bed. Alita turns
and spots Jake at the doorway and jumps off Shawn.

                       JAKE
I fell in love with you!! And you
do this in front of me!! Why?!!
                                                            
                       ALITA
I don't know what's wrong with me!
                                                            
Jake climbs back into his truck and slams the door.
                                                            
                       JAKE
What makes me sick is that
everyone was right about you.
Everyone tried to warn me about
you and I didn't listen. I didn't
fucking listen to them.

A long metal rod slide down from Jake's sleeve. Jake shakes
the rod and it grows three more feet.
                                                            
                       SHAWN

strikes him across the knee caps and they make a loud snap
sound.
                                                            
Shawn goes down to the ground screaming in pain. Jake hits
Shawn hard three times across the chest and ribs, breaking

filed charges against me. He said
he was jumped by gang members who
were driving by.

We need to get out of here!
                                                            
The Police Officers are now covering there faces and
couching from the effects of the pepper spray.
                                                            

26.

                       POLICE OFICER 1.
      (Coughing)
Stop!! Stop!!! Stop spraying!!
                                                            
The Green Mile is on the floor couching and screaming in
pain. Some of the Police Officers are doing the same.
                                                            
FIRST FLOOR MACY'S
                                                            
Jake and Chris keep backing up away from the escalator. All
the Shoppers running for help are stopped in there tracks by
the smell of the pepper spray.
                                                            
                       JAKE
The police fucked this shit up.
                                                            
HOURS LATER
                                                            
The entrance to the MACY'S is taped off with POLICE tape.
Jake and Chris sit taking oxygen from a FIREMAN. James
walks out from the entrance of the MACY'S. James is wearing
a has-mat jumpsuit. He pulls off his helmet in front of
Jake and Chris
                                                            
                       JAMES
What the hell did the police do!?
                                                            
Jason walks out of the department store wearing the same
has-mat suit.
                                                            
                       JAMES
--what the hell did you and your
men do?!!
                                                            
                       JASON
Did you see that guy? Ask your
men, they know, they got a taste
of how powerful he was.
                                                            
                       JAMES
He was on PCP. That's why he was
acting like the Hulk.
                                                            
FIREMAN continue to help Shoppers. Some of the Shoppers are
being wheeled out on stretchers.
                                                            
                       JASON
Your men couldn't stop him.
                                                            
Jake and Chris are still getting help breathing from the
oxygen mask. They look up at Jason and shake there heads.
                                                            

27.

                       JAMES
Why didn't you just blow up the
building. I mean look at this
fucking place.
                                                            
                       JASON
You will read about it in my
report
                                                            
                       JAMES
Who cares about your damn report.
                                                            
Jason walks up to James as if they are going to square off.
Jason thinks about it for a moment, turns and walks away.
                                                            
                       JAMES
What the fuck where you guys
thinking? You guys fucked up big
time.
                                                            
                       JAKE
How did we do that? How should we
have handled it?
                                                            
                       JAMES
You guys cut him off....get him
out of the building.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
He was like Godzilla. We hit him
with everything.
                                                            
                       JAMES
And why was Alex running the
cameras at the time? Marcus you
should have switched places with
him.
                                                            
Jake stands up.
                                                            
                       JAKE
You weren't here. The fucking
police couldn't even handle him.
                                                            
Jake starts to walk away.
                                                            
                       JAMES
I'm not done with you.
                                                            
Jake stops and turns around.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Sounds like your done to me.
                                                            

28.

                       CHRIS
James.....I'm sure they would be
interested in our side of the
story.
                                                            
Jake sees all the REPORTERS that are covering what happen.
                                                            
                       JAKE
You think they would like to hear
my side of the story?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I think so.
                                                            
James thinks for a moment.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Go ahead. It still won't change
the fact that you guys fucked up..
Telling them won't change that in
my eyes. And I'm the only one
that counts around here.
                                                            
Jake and Chris walk away, they don't head for the news
REPORTERS.
                                                            
 
INT. MANSION - LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Al-Rubaie stands inside the plush living room. The house
could be a home in Beverly Hills or in the riches parts of
Hollywood.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie picks up a handful of large envelopes, he hands
them out. He hands them to his three boyhood friends first,
he then hands them to the three young women sitting across
them in the living room.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
Open your envelopes. Our plan is
going forward. You are just a
small part of the attack on the
infidels.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie opens his envelope which has in red bold letters.
RED FACTOR. It is also written in Russian on the same page.
                                                            
                       AL-GHAZI
Russia?
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
They supplied the bomb making
equipment, they are also supplying
the weapons. The bomb making gear

29.

                       AL-RUBAIE (cont'd)
came yesterday.
                                                            
There are ten metal boxes behind him near the wall.
Al-Rubaie picks up one of the metal boxes, which is the size
of a carton of milk.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
Now...I was told that I must ask
you all this before you leave here
tonight.
                                                            
One of the young women stands up. Her two friends try to
sit her back down.
                                                            
                       SHIFA AL-QUDIS
I don't think this is right.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
What do you mean? We have been
over this, you are not here to
think, you are here to carry
bombs.
                                                            
                       SHIFA AL-QUDIS
I have a brain, and I do think.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
How else are the Americans going
to understand what we are going
through. The same Americans that
killed your family in Iraq.
                                                            
                       AL-GHAZI
What about all of your training?
Everything you went through?
                                                            
                       SHIFA AL-QUDIS
So many people are going to die.
So many Americans.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie walks over to the mantel of the fireplace. There
are countless photos of men and woman of middle eastern
decent there.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
What about our people dying in
Pakistan? Do they care about
them? The Americans don't care
about anything but themselfs.
                                                            

30.

                       SHIFA AL-QUDIS
I don't think I can go though with
it.
                                                            
Al-Ghazi stands up and walks away from her. He stands by
the side of AL RUBAIE.
                                                            
                       AL-GHAZI
You will need to be able to press
the trigger when the time comes.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
Do you not care about our people?
                                                            
                       SHIFA AL-QUDIS
Our people will forgive me in
time.
                                                            
Al-Ghazi tries one more time to change her mind.
                                                            
                       AL-GHAZI
What about your family? What do
you think they will do?
                                                            
                       SHIFA AL-QUDIS
I hope they will forgive me.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie pulls out a gun from a holster in the middle of
his back. He points it at her forehead.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
They might forgive you, but I
won't.
                                                            
Shifa Al-Qudis stands still and shuts her eyes. Al-Rubaie
shoots her in the head. Blood sprays on the women sitting
behind her.
                                                            
Two shots are fired at Al-Rubaie from someone in the house.
The bullets miss and hit the wall behind him. Al-Rubaie
looks at one of the young men who is sitting across from
him.

The young man who fired the shots is about to pull the
trigger again.
                                                            
Al-Ghazi shoots the young man before he can get another shot
off. Al-Rubain puts his handgun away. Al-Ghazi fires again
at the young man, hitting him in the chest.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
I think he's dead.
                                                            

31.

                       AL-GHAZI
I want to be sure. Did he get
you?
                                                            
Al-Rubain looks at the bullets holes behind him.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
I'm okay.
                                                            
The women are crying and the men look on in horror at there
dead friends.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
Does anyone else want to change
there minds about what we are
about to do?!
                                                            
The sits back in there chairs. Not saying a word but still
looking very frighten.
                                                            
 
EXT. PARKING LOT - LOWER LEVEL STRUCTURE - DAY
                                                            
The parking lot is filled with cars, traffic is slowly
building. The entrance to the parking structure is starting
to back up. A car will pull out of a parking space to be
taken just as quickly by another one.
                                                            
A late 1980's Cadillac El Laredo darts in and out of the
cars searching for parking. The Cadillac is a faded sliver
color, almost gray. It looks like a shark searching for
it's next victim.
                                                            
The Cadillac turns again through the lower level of the
parking lot, it slowly creeps up to a young woman carrying
two large shopping bags. The young woman quickly cuts
though two parked cars and disappears from the Cadillac's
sight. The Cadillac turns out the exit of the parking lot
and leaves the shopping center.
                                                            
 
EXT. MOVIE THEATER - NIGHT
                                                            
The front of the box style movie theater from the parking
lot crowds can be seen inside. A Plymouth Barracuda passes
by, brakes hard, reverses and parks.
                                                            
Several seconds pass. Then the car door opens and the
BISHOP BROTHERS like circus clowns, clamber out in a cloud
of reefer smoke. LESTER BISHOP, the dandruff-caked
pockmarked middle brother is the first out. He shakes off
the cold, stretching, revealing all manner of tattoo.
                                                            

32.

The BISHOP'S youngest brother, the Baby-Huey sized JEEVES
BISHOP brambles out, pulling at his crotch. DARWIN BISHOP
climbs from the car, the eldest brother, skinny boss, brains
of the outfit. DARWIN throws a sawed off shotgun at LESTER
and one to JEEVES. DARWIN takes out his own shotgun and the
three brother's pump them at the same time.
                                                            
 
INT. MOVIE THEATER - NIGHT
                                                            
The three brothers enter the lobby of the theater blasting
there shotguns into the air. All the MOVIEGOERS scream in
fear.
                                                            
                       LESTER
NOBODY MOVE!!!
                                                            
The CONCESSION STAND ASSOCIATES stand still in fear as
Jeeves fires his shotgun into the ceiling.
                                                            
                       DARWIN
On the ground! And empty your
pockets next to you.
                                                            
One of the Concession Associates presses a button under the
cash register. Jeeves runs and jumps over the glass
displays of candy as he jumps he hits the Concession
Associate square in the face. The Concession Associate falls
knocked out cold.
                                                            
                       DARWIN
Get the money!!
                                                            
The other Concession Associates back away from the large
Jeeves. Jeeves spots the blinking light next to the
register.
                                                            
                       JEEVES
Fuck!!!
                                                            
Lester is on the floor picking up wallets and loose cash
next to everyone one who is laying down. He is putting
everything into an old pillow case.
                                                            
                       DARWIN
What's wrong?!
                                                            
                       JEEVES
FUCK!!!
                                                            
Jeeves turns and shoots at another Concession Associate, a
eighteen year old boy, who is blown in half by the blast.
Everyone in the lobby is crying and screaming.

Jake and Chris stand watching the traffic moving out of one
of the exits and onto the street. A cell phone starts to
ring. Jake looks at Chris.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Is that you?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
It's not me.
                                                            
                       JAKE
My cell phone is in my locker.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Oh.
                                                            
Jake reaches into his pocket and takes out his cell phone.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Hello...yeah, what are you talking
about? Our radios died about an
hour ago. We've been out here all
damn day.
                                                            
                       JAKE
What's wrong?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Call the police. Well what about
the mall police?
                                                            
                       JAKE
What's going on?
                                                            
Jake turns towards the direction of the Spring Garden Movie
Theater. The movie theater is a stand alone building at the
end of the parking lot.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Someone set off the silent alarm.
                                                            
Jake takes the phone away from Chris.
                                                            
                       JAKE
What the hell is going on?
                                                            
                       HECTOR (O.S.)
      (Over the phone)
Someone is robbing the theater.
                                                            

34.

                       JAKE
Who cares.
                                                            
Chris pulls the phone back.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Tell Alex to meet us at the south
end of the parking lot. Tell him
to hurry! And bring the keys,
make sure the fucking police hurry
up!
                                                            
                       JAKE
Your kidding right. Why don't we
just wait for the police?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
The police are tied up. And we're
here right now. We need to see
what we can do.
                                                            
 
EXT. MOVIE THEATER - (REAR) - NIGHT
                                                            
Alex hands Jake a key ring. Jake unlocks a back door to the
theater. The three guards quietly slip inside through the
door.
                                                            
 
INT. THEATER - HALLWAY - NIGHT
                                                            
Jake leads the way followed closely by Jake and Alex. The
three stop when they hear the sound of a shotgun blast.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
      (Whispers)
Maybe this wasn't such a good
idea.
                                                            
Jake turns and gives him a stern look. Jake kneels down and
slowly opens the door to a small crack, the door leads to
the lobby. Jake struggles to scan the situation. Lester
comes into view, he fires his shotgun into the air again.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Shit.
                                                            
                       LESTER (O.S.)
Come on!
                                                            
Lester moves out of Jake's sight. Jake reaches onto his
belt buckle and holds his large MAG-LIGHT. It looks like a
black club. Chris and Alex are doing the same.
                                                            

35.

                       JAKE
Let's wait for the police.
                                                            
THE SOUND
                                                            
is of another shotgun blast.
                                                            
The door opens, Jake quickly craws out staying low to the
wall so he won't be seen. Jake now notices he is by
himself.
                                                            
Lester walks back towards Jake. Lester looks down at Jake
and points his shotgun down at him. A MAG-LIGHT flies
through the air and hits Lester in the head.
                                                            
The shotgun Lester was holding flies up into the air. Darwin
and Jeeves witness Lester fall back from the hit in the
head.

catches the shotgun in mid air. Chris and Alex are now
standing behind Jake. Darwin fires at them from across the
lobby. The three guards dive for cover. Lester runs over
towards the guards, leaping over the Moviegoers.
                                                            
Darwin fires again at Jake. Jake shoots Darwin, blowing him
back ten feet into the air. Police sirens are heard in the
distance.
                                                            
Jeeves grabs one of the woman from off the floor. He points
his shotgun at her head. The woman is screaming and crying.
                                                            
                       JEEVES
Me and her are leaving!! Don't
try and stop me!!
                                                            
Jake is still pointing the shotgun at Jeeves.
                                                            
                       JEEVES
Put the gun down!!!
                                                            
The woman starts to scream louder.
                                                            
                       JEEVES
Shut up bitch!!!
                                                            
Jake puts the shotgun down on the floor.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Okay...okay...look, I'm putting it
down.

victim.
                                                            
Chris watches as Eric walks up and climbs into the ring.
Eric also has on his sparing gear.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Eric are you sure you want to go
through with this? Shouldn't
train for another ten years.
                                                            
Master Velazquez stands in the middle of the two men to be
the referee for there sparing match.
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
Now remember, we are all friends
and all part of the same team. We
will stay friends when we are done
here. Remember sparing is not
fighting.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Only if I win.
                                                            
                       ERIC
I guess we're not gonna be friends
then.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Just put in your mouth piece and
lets do this.
                                                            
Now the rest of the STUDENTS surround the ring. Jake stands
with Alex and Hector.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Come on Eric...show him your boss.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Shut up!
                                                            
Chris puts in his mouth piece. Master Velazquez stands in
the middle of the two young men, Eric and Chris square off
ready to fight.
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
FIGHT!!
                                                            

39.

Chris backs up as Eric comes straight at him. Chris quickly
moves to the side and kicks Eric on his side. Master
Velazquez points to Chris.
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
Point!
                                                            
Eric shakes his head. Chris faces him with a wide smile on
his face.
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
FIGHT!!
                                                            
Eric waits for Chris to come to him. Chris jumps up in the
air and lands a kick right on Eric's chest.
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
      (Pointing to Chris)
Point!!
                                                            
Chris throws two quick punches and then does a spin kick.
Eric is able to duck and avoid the two punches; but, he is
hit hard on the side with the kick. Eric is hit so hard, he
falls back onto the mat.
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
      (Pointing to Chris)
Come on Eric, Chris needs just one
more point.
                                                            
Eric gets back into a fighting stance. Chris starts to jump
up and down ready to end the fight and get his last point.
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
Fight!!
                                                            
Eric rushes at Chris and does a spin kick of his own. Chris
ducks out of the way of the kick, which comes within inches
of the side of his head.
                                                            
CHRIS
                                                            
throws a straight punch that hits Eric on his chest.
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
      (Pointing to Chris)
Winner!!
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Are you okay.
                                                            
Eric rips off his head gear and throws it out of the ring.
                                                            

40.

                       ERIC
Yeah...I'm fine.
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
Gentlemen...gentlemen...that's not
how we do things here. We are all
part of the same team, we are all
friends.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Come on...don't get mad. This is
how you learn. You need more to
learn but you gave it your best
shot.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Eric, do you want me to get in
there and beat his ass for you?
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
      (angry)
Stop it!! Chris you will match
me.
                                                            
Everyone in the studio is surprised by what is going to
happened. Master Velazquez jumps out of the ring and over
to the area in the studio where his gear is. The STUDENTS
watch as Master Velazquez puts on his sparing gear.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Your in trouble.
                                                            
Master Velazquez climbs back into the ring.
                                                            
                       MASTER VELAZQUEZ
Jake...get in here to keep score.
                                                            
                       JAKE
What did I do?
                                                            
Jake climbs into the ring to referee the match.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Chris, don't hold back alright.
                                                            
WITH THE BLINK OF AN EYE
                                                            
Master Velazquez kicks Chris in the middle of his chest,
knocking him down to the ground. Jake looks down at Chris
who has the wind knocked out of him.
                                                            
                       JAKE
That looks like it hurt.
                                                            

41.

Chris rolls around on the mat in pain. Master Velazquez
jumps out of the ring to put his gear back in his bag. Jake
stands over Chris.
                                                            
                       JAKE
You really know how to piss people
off.
                                                            
Chris holds up his middle finger at Jake.
                                                            
                       JAKE
See...that's what's I'm talking
about.
                                                            
 
EXT. NPPL SAN DIEGO - DAY
                                                            
The field is filled with teams from all over the country.
There are tents put up selling t-shirts, paint ball guns,
and hot dogs, At the entrance to the tournament hangs a
large banner that reads 'NPPL COMMANDER'S CUP' Most of the
teams are all dressed in the paint ball war gear.
                                                            
Jake, Chris, Eric, Hector, and Alex walk through all the
different teams. Some of the guys as they walked passed
push Jake. Jake turns to look at the person who pushed him.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Hey! What the fuck!!
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What's wrong?!
                                                            
                       JAKE
I feel like Wyatt Earp and we're
walking into the O.K. coral. Do
you remember any of these teams?
                                                            
Chris and the others begins to look around at everyone.
                                                            
                       ALEX
I've seen most of these guys
before.
                                                            
                       ERIC
We're beat most of these guys.
More then once.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Everyone here hates us.
                                                            
David Hooper walks out of the crowd and approaches an older
heavy set man with a NPPL logo on his shirt. He is a NPPL

42.

OFFICIAL. David hands him an envelope that looks like it is
filled with money.
                                                            
Jake is watching every more David is making. He watches the
NPPL OFFICIAL shake his hand.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What do you think that is about.
What do you think he told him?
                                                            
                       JAKE
It can't be good, what ever it is.
But, I'm gonna find out.
                                                            
Jake walks towards David and the OFFICIAL. David spots Jake
and cuts him off.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Hey...no hard feelings from the
other day, right. Tell me, when
was the last time you guys ever
lost a match?
                                                            
                       JAKE
I don't know why? We just play
for the money.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Don't we all.
                                                            
David now finds himself surrounded by Alex, Hector, Chris,
and Eric.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Do you guys think you'll keep your
win streak alive?
                                                            
                       ERIC
Yeah...why?
                                                            
                       ALEX
Why do you care? What is it to
you?
                                                            
David walks away from the group.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (As he walks away)
You never know when your luck is
gonna change.
                                                            
David disappears into the crowd.
                                                            

43.

                       JAKE
He's a creepy little guy?
                                                            
 
EXT. NPPL RANGE - THE FORT SCENARIO - DAY
                                                            
Chris, Alex, Jake, Eric, and Hector stand facing a wooden
fort. The fort looks like a two story tree house. It has a
door, two windows, there are wooden creates in front to hide
behind, there is a stairway leading up to the second floor
of the fort.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Why are we all here? What are we
doing?
                                                            
                       JAKE
Don't know.
                                                            
The NPPL OFFICIAL that David was talking to walks to the
front to address the group. He takes out a microphone and
turns it on.
                                                            
                       NPPL OFFICIAL
I want to thank everyone for being
here at our 2008 tournament. I
can see that we have a good turn
out this year.
                                                            
The NPPL OFFICIAL turns and looks at DAVID.
                                                            
                       NPPL OFFICIAL
We are proud to have the
undefeated team of the Security
Guardians here with us. Marcus
Watson and your team are going to
compete in what we call single
strong hold. But this year will
be a little different.
                                                            
Jake turns and looks at David, who smiles.
                                                            
                       NPPL OFFICIAL
Jake, you and your team will
defend the fort against four
teams.
                                                            
                       JAKE
What?!! Why are we defending
against twenty?
                                                            

44.

                       NPPL OFFICIAL
Jake, if you don't feel your team
is good enough to defend against
twenty top paint ballers, maybe
being undefeted is a fluk.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I don't think it's a fair fight.
We don't get anything out of it.
Why would we do this?
                                                            
                       NPPL OFFICIAL
If your team doesn't go through
with this, you will have to
forefit your undeffeted status.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Are you kidding me?!!
                                                            
                       ALEX
We can do it!
                                                            
                       JAKE
Shut up Alex.
                                                            
                       ERIC
We can do this. We've beat just
about everyone here. We can go a
whole year without a loss.
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (To the Official)
Can you give us a minute?
                                                            
Jake leads his group to the side, out of the way from anyone
hearing them.
                                                            
                       ERIC
We're better then everyone here.
What is the problem?
                                                            
                       JAKE
You really want us to take our
changes with twenty guys trying to
kill us?
                                                            
                       HECTOR
We would make history if we won.
                                                            

45.

                       CHRIS
It's a no win for us. Hooper made
some kind of deal with the
official for us kicking his ass
the other day.
                                                            
                       ERIC
If we loose, we loose kicking a
little ass.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Okay...its up to you. We do this
or we walk away. What is it?
                                                            
The NPPL OFFICIAL starts to walk towards them.
                                                            
                       NPPL OFFICIAL
Okay Gentlemen...what is your
decision?
                                                            
Jake nods his head, Chris nods his head, Hector nods his
head, Alex nods his head, Eric nods his head.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Looks like we're in.
                                                            
                       NPPL OFFICIAL
We will give you and your team
five minutes to get ready. After
that, the game will begin.
                                                            
 
INT. THE FORT - DAY
                                                            
Chris and Hector check the back window. They look down to
see a chain link fence is behind them.
                                                            
                       HECTOR
No one's coming from back here.
                                                            
Alex starts pulling up the floor boards with his bear hands,
he makes an opening big enough for them to fit inside.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What do you see?
                                                            
                       ALEX
Nothing, it's another level.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I have an idea, get all the guns
out of the bags. Give me all the
wood he pulled up. And all the
nails, I need all your shoe
            (MORE)

46.

                       JAKE (cont'd)
laceses too.
                                                            
FIVE MINUTES LATER
                                                            
The twenty men are ready to attack the fort. Some are
behind the hay bails and the wooden barrels.
                                                            
                       NPPL OFFICIAL
The game starts now!!
                                                            
The four teams open fire on the fort. Paint balls whiz
though the air and hit the walls of the fort. Jake moves up
to the window and starts shooting.
                                                            
Paint balls speed down from the windows of the fort. Jake
stands up and quickly darts back inside. Paint balls
splatter within inches of hitting him.
                                                            
Jake picks up a piece of wood that looks like a handle, it
is attached to shoe laces, he rushes by and picks up another
wooden handle, the handles are made from the floor boards.
                                                            
The wooden handles are tied to paint guns that are mounted
along the windows with other pieces of wood. The guns are
pointing down onto the playing field.
                                                            
Jake hands one of the wooden handles to Chris who is sitting
on the floor in the back of the fort. We can see he is also
missing his shoe laces. Jake turns and looks out one of the
windows.
                                                            
Six paint ballers are rushing towards the fort.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Pull!!
                                                            
Chris pulls the handle, pulling the triggers on the four
paint guns.
                                                            
PAINT BALLS
                                                            
strike four of the six that were advancing on the fort. The
other two dive for cover.
                                                            
Jake shoots down at three more paint ballers rushing towards
the fort. Jake is on target and hits two in the chest.
                                                            
                       HECTOR (O.S.)
How's it going?!!
                                                            
Hector is inside the hole.
                                                            

47.

                       CHRIS
It's not looking good.
                                                            
Five paint balls explode above Chris's head.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Damn it!
                                                            
Chris yanks on both the handles.
                                                            
PAINT BALLS fly like angry bees straight at two on coming
paint ballers. Three are hit across the chest.
                                                            
David is hiding behind a near by hay bail. He watches as
paint balls keep raining down from the fort.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Son of a bitch!!
                                                            
A PAINT BALL
                                                            
hits above David's head.
                                                            
                       DAVID
FUCK!!
                                                            
David peeks around the hay bail at the rest of the men that
are waiting to advance.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (To the men next
       to him)
We're gonna take him! On three!!
                                                            
David checks his paint gun.
                                                            
                       DAVID
One!...Two!...Three!!
                                                            
Out from behind every hiding place around. The last eleven
young men rush towards the fort. David lets the eleven go
first and he runs behind them.
                                                            
 
INT. FORT - DAY
                                                            
The inside of the fort is splatted with paint balls. Jake
and Chris both pull the handles firing all the paint ball
guns. Five more men are shot with paint balls. The other
six make it to the stairs leading to the second level of the
fort.
                                                            

48.

Chris jumps down into the hole followed close behind by
Jake. Two of the paint ballers rush inside and spot the
hole in the ground. Chris suddenly springs up and shoots
the two men. David and the others back up.
                                                            
Alex, Eric, and Hector are standing at the bottom of the
fort. Jake and Chris now emerge from another hole that was
made in the wall of the lower level of the fort.
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (Pointing his gun
       at David)
Put your guns down!!
                                                            
                       NPPL OFFICIAL
Winner!!
                                                            
                       DAVID
Fuck!! You can't do that. You
can't rip apart the fort.
                                                            
Jake gets in David's face.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Why not...this whole game was
fucked up from the start. But we
got through your fucked up game.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We weren't supposed to get through
any of this, right David?
                                                            
The NPPL OFFICIAL steps in between David and Chris
                                                            
                       NPPL OFFICIAL
Gentlemen...gentlemen..Jake and
his team won fair and square.
Congratalions.
                                                            
                       DAVID
You can't declare them the winner,
we had a deal.
                                                            
                       NPPL OFFICIAL
I don't know what your talking
about young fella.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Fuck you!!! Fuck all of you!!!
                                                            
David turns and walks away pushing people out of the way as
he goes.
                                                            
 

49.

EXT. LOWER LEVEL PARKING LOT STRUCTURE - DAY
                                                            
The same faded sliver color, late 80's Cadillac El Laredo
makes another appearance in the parking lot. It is cruising
the area searching for another young woman.
                                                            
CHESTER, 45 years old, skinny, greasy black hair, thick
glasses, is behind the wheel. He is frantically looking
around the parking lot. Chester wipes the sweat from his
forehead.
                                                            
A SALESGIRL walks across the street from the shopping center
to the parking structure. The Salesgirl is dressed in an
extremely short skirt and very low cut top.
                                                            
She is dressed more like a person going to a nightclub, then
a salesgirl working in a shopping center.
                                                            
Chester spots her.
                                                            
                       CHESTER
Oh my...
                                                            
Chester turns the steering wheel.
                                                            
                       CHESTER
Oh my...oh my...
                                                            
THE CADILLAC
                                                            
turns around and heads back towards the SALESGIRL.
                                                            
The Salesgirl stops suddenly as a car speeds by her, causing
a gust of wind making her skirt fly up exposing her black
underwear. She quickly puts her skirt down and cuts across
the parking lot.
                                                            
The Cadillac pulls up slowly along the side of her. The
Salesgirl turns and looks into the car. A loud moan comes
from inside the car, the Salesgirl screams at what she has
just seen. Shocked she runs away from the car.
                                                            
Hector is giving a parking ticket close by when he hears the
screaming. He runs towards the sounds of the girl screaming
her head off. He spots her running towards him.
                                                            
The Salesgirl stops and vomits. Hector approaches her
slowly as she finishes.
                                                            
                       HECTOR
What happend!? Are you okay?
                                                            

50.

                       SALESGIRL
Sick! Disgusting! The man in the
car!
                                                            
                       HECTOR
Chester!!
                                                            
Hector turns to see the Cadillac trying to escape the
parking structure. The Cadillac is only fifty yards away
from him. Hector gives chase on foot. He reaches on his
side and puts the hands free radio on his head.
                                                            
                       HECTOR
      (Into radio)
I have Chester on the east side of
the lower level parking lot. I am
giving chase on foot. I need
someone to cut him off.
                                                            
 
EXT. PARKING LOT - LOWER LEVEL - DAY
                                                            
The Cadillac turns and heads for one of the exits out of the
parking structure. Hector runs up behind the is twenty
yards away from the car.

Chester can see Hector running up behind him.
                                                            
In a panic Chester hits the gas and speeds into a wall.
Chester gets out of the car and runs back into the shopping
center.
                                                            
                       HECTOR
He's on foot, he going back into
the mall. Northside enterance!
                                                            
 
INT. SHOPPING CENTER - - DAY
                                                            
Chester runs into the shopping center, he is trying to pull
up his pants and zip the zipper. Hector is right behind
him. Chester is running hard through the mall, he spots
Eric running up towards him.
                                                            
                       HECTOR
Eric get him!!!
                                                            
Chester makes a sharp left almost like a football player,
making Eric fly passed him. Hector continues the chase.
                                                            

51.

                       HECTOR
He's heading for the food court.
                                                            
                       ALEX (O.S.)
      (Through Hector's
       radio)
I'm on him. He's heading my way.
                                                            
Chester cuts though the crowd of shoppers. Alex steps out
and hits him square on the face, knocking him down to the
ground.
                                                            
                       ALEX
I got him.
                                                            
Hector runs and grabs Chester lifting him back up off the
ground and punches him again. Chester falls to the ground
with a splat. Hector lifts him back up again and punches
him even harder this time.
                                                            
                       ALEX
      (Grabbing Hector)
Hey!! What's wrong with you?!!
                                                            
                       HECTOR
Let me go!! I'm gonna kill him!!
                                                            
Chester lays on the ground bleeding from his mouth.
                                                            
                       ALEX
It's over...it's done!
                                                            
 
INT. 24 HOURS FITNESS - NIGHT
                                                            
The inside of the gym is empty. We pass the clock on the
wall which reads 12:45 am, Jake and Chris are jogging on
the treadmill.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
So...what happend with Hector?
                                                            
                       JAKE
Todd put him on graveyard. Till
he calms down.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What kind of thanks is that?
                                                            
                       JAKE
Well, when you almost kill the
guy, it doesn't look good in his
report.
                                                            

52.

                       CHRIS
I would have done the same thing
if it was me.
                                                            
                       JAKE
You would have beat the crap out
of Chester?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I saw that girl. I would have
been jacking off too.
                                                            
Jake starts to hit buttons on the treadmill. The treadmill
begins to make loud beeps as it slows down.
                                                            
                       JAKE
You and your hobbys.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What else is there?
                                                            
The treadmill comes to a stop and Jake steps off and walks
away.
                                                            
Jake heads for the exercise machines and sits down at the
shoulder press. Chris stops the treadmill and walks over
towards him.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I was thinking of joining the army
and getting training in the
Military police.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
You have gone crazy, haven't you?
                                                            
Jake works out on the machine. He sets the weight for 160
pounds. He then knocks out ten reps and stops with a loud
clank of the stack of weight hitting the machine.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I want to fight for my country.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Damn you do need a woman.
                                                            
Jake knocks out another set on the shoulder press machine.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Can you go five minutes without
thinking about women?
                                                            

53.

                       CHRIS
No...I can go five minutes. Sure.
                                                            
A young woman walks passed them in a tight shirt and skin
tight shorts.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Okay...maybe I can't go five
minutes.
                                                            
The young woman turns to Chris and smiles at him.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
No...I take it back. I can't go a
minute without thinking of woman.
                                                            
Jake does two more sets on the chest press machine.
                                                            
                       JAKE
You need help. You really do.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I don't need help being a guy.
Maybe you need help not being gay.
How can you not look at that
girl. Oh yeah...I forgot, your
gay.
                                                            
Chris and Jake turn and watch the woman working out on the
chest press machine. The woman working out on the machine
doesn't notice them at first. She then looks at them.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
      (Acting shocked)
Dude what are you doing. I'm
sorry about my friend. Jake, what
is with you?
                                                            
The woman gets up from her machine and walks away.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I know you think your funny. But
your an ass.
                                                            
Jake stands up and heads for the locker room.
                                                            
 
INT. SHOPPING CENTER - NORTH WING OF MALL - DAY
                                                            
Al-Rubaie and Al-Ghazi walk though the busy mall, the crowd
of Shoppers is so thick that the two men seem to disappear
and reappear from within the crowds. The two men stop,
Al-Rubaie quickly takes a picture from a digital camera.
                                                            

54.

The two men keep walking till they come to the main exit and
entrance at the North end of the shopping center. Al-Ghazi
snaps two quick pictures with his own digital camera.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie turns and looks back from where they had walked
from and it is a vast sea of Shoppers walking from shop to
shop carrying there large bags and pushing strollers.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
I think we have enough.
                                                            
                       AL-GHAZI
I think so too.
                                                            
The two men turn and walk back though the crowd and
disappear into the crowd.
                                                            
 
EXT. WAREHOUSE - - NIGHT
                                                            
The warehouse blends in with other local buildings in the
warehouse district of the city. The sign on the wall of the
building reads Import Export exchange service. Two new
BMW'S are parked in front.
                                                            
 
INT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Al-Rubaie sits in the middle of the warehouse at a long
metal table. He is surrounded by bomb making equipment.
Al-Rubaie is putting the finishing touches on a bomb that is
shaped like a football.

He puts it to the side on the table next to him, with ten
others like it. He now begins to build another bomb with
the endless pieces of equipment he has. The ringing of a
cell phone breaks the silence.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
What!?
                                                            
He keeps working on the bomb as he talks on the phone.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
I have the trucks right here.
                                                            
THE CAMERA PANS
                                                            
towards the back of the warehouse where we see four white
vans that have logo's for the local telephone company on
them. We can also see what looks like a make shift shooting
range set up. There is also a large desk and table set up
with a computer.
                                                            

55.

                       AL-RUBAIE
I'm just waiting on you. We all
have to be in agreement before I
make the tape.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie connects a wire to the small battery on the bomb
and puts it down next to the others.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
I just have to make about twenty
more of these and then put them in
the vans. I also have the
shipment of automatics coming in
from Mexico tonight. I am still
waiting for the money to transfer
into my account from your uncle in
London.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie gets up from the table and heads for the computer.
Slowly he punches in a few numbers and letters and the
statement for an account clicks on the screen.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
The money is not there. I don't
care if he said he sent it, it is
not there.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie in anger kicks the near by metal trash can across
the warehouse.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
      (Yells into the
       phone)
FUCK YOU!!!
                                                            
Al-Rubaie throws the cell phone hard across the warehouse.
He walks over to the shooting range he has set up. He picks
up a small machine gun that is on the table next to it. He
fires the machine gun at paper targets which are blown to
pieces by the hail of bullets coming from the small weapon
                                                            
The side door to the warehouse opens and Al-Ghazi walks
inside. Al-Rubaie turns and comes within inches of shooting
him.
                                                            
                       AL-GHAZI
Hey it's me. Watch it.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
What do you want?
                                                            
Al-Ghazi sits down in a near by chair.
                                                            

56.

                       AL-GHAZI
Have you thought about what we are
about to do? I mean really
thought about it?
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
Didn't our trip open you eyes to
anything? Didn't you see what was
going on over there? Didn't the
training teach you anything?
                                                            
                       AL-GHAZI
Not all America is bad? We should
strike at what is wrong with this
country.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
We are...
                                                            
 
INT. RESTAURANT - NIGHT
                                                            
The inside of a nice crowed restaurant, it looks like it is
part Asian and part ultra modern. Towards the center of the
restaurant sitting at a table is Jake and Brenda. They are
on a dinner date.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
I didn't think you would ever ask
me out.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I'm sorry if I was making you
wait. I am not used to asking
woman out on dates. It's been
along time.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Well I'm honored.
                                                            
Brenda takes a sip from her drink.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
I did everything but throw myself
at you. No, wait...I did throw
myself at you.
                                                            
Jake talks a long drink from his glass. He appears to be
getting nervous with what she is telling him.
                                                            

57.

                       JAKE
I thought, that someone so
beautiful would already have a
boyfriend.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
I did have a boyfriend. I had one
for two years. He went to Iraq
and was killed in action.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I'm sorry.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
It's been rough...I wanted to wait
a while before thinking about
going out again.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Well...now I'm honored.
                                                            
A WAITER, 20 years old, handsome, comes and hands them
their menus.
                                                            
                       WAITER
      (Thinking)
The specials today are the trout
and the prime rib. I'll give you
guys more time.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Thank you.
                                                            
The Waiter turns but he keeps looking at Brenda. Jake
notices the Waiter looking at Brenda right away. Jake
stands up.
                                                            
                       JAKE (Cont)
      (Angry)
Is there a problem?
                                                            
                       WAITER
No..no...there's no problem.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
What's wrong with you? What's
going on?
                                                            
Jake sits back down.
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (Watching the
       Waiter)
You didn't see him checking you
            (MORE)

58.

                       JAKE (cont'd)
out. I was waiting for him to sit
down with us.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Really he was checking me out. He
was kind of cute.
                                                            
                       JAKE
What?!
                                                            
Brenda takes a long slow sip from her drink.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
      (Laughs)
I'm just kidding. I'm here with
you and no one else.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I'm sorry, like I said, it has
been a long time since I've been
on a date. I'm still trying to
remember how to be charming.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Your doing just fine. You just
need to be more of yourself.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Okay...

him towards her. They kiss for the first time.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Do you want to come inside and see
my 55 inch flat screen
telelvision?
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (A moment)
Sure.
                                                            
 
INT. BRENDA'S APARTMENT - NIGHT
                                                            
The inside of Brenda's apartment is very clean. She has a
couch in the small living room. A table with two chairs
next to the tiny kitchen. Jake looks around and doesn't see

59.

a flat screen television anywhere in the apartment.

Brenda notices him looking around the apartment.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
The T.V.s in the bedroom. Unless
you don't want to see it.
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (Smiles)
Oh no...I want to see it.
                                                            
Brenda takes Jake by the hand and leads him towards her
bedroom.
                                                            
 
EXT. SPRING GARDENS - STREET - NIGHT
                                                            
A telephone company van is parked on the street in front of
the shopping center. Yellow cones are placed around a
telephone pole near the sidewalk. Al-Rubaie is wearing a
telephone company uniform. He is busy burying the bombs
that he made.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie goes back to the van and takes out another
backpack. He walks across the street and puts one of the
bombs under the storm drain hidden from view.
                                                            
UPPER LEVER PARKING LOT
                                                            
There is another telephone company van parked. Al-Ghazi
puts down two yellow cones around the back of the van. He
opens the cover on the light pole and puts one of the bombs
inside of it. He walks to one of the trash cans that is on
the other side of the parking lot. He sticks it to the
inside of the can so if it is emptied it won't be seen
                                                            
LOWER LEVEL PARKING LOT
                                                            
Al-Rubaie opens a man-hole and climbs inside of it. He has
a full back pack with him. Yellow cones surround the area
he is working at. It looks like the telephone company is
fixing the phone lines.

hole. Hector writes down the time the van is parked in the
area and begins to write down the drivers licence.
                                                            
The other vans pulls up right next to Hector who is still
writing his information down. Al-Ghazi rolls his window
down to speak to Hector.
                                                            
                       AL-GHAZI
      (Perfect English)
Is there a problem? We are
updating the phone lines in this
area. My co-worker is doing work
down in the hole.
                                                            
                       HECTOR
I just don't have anything about
you guys being here.
                                                            
Al-Ghazi looks over Hector's shoulder and towards the back
of the truck. Hector doesn't notice that Al-Rubaie has come
up from the man-hole is is approaching.
                                                            
                       AL-GHAZI
      (Reaching into his
       jacket)
I have the work order right here.
                                                            
Al-Ghazi pulls out a 45. automatic pistol and shoots Hector
in the head. Blood and brain tissue spray onto the windows
inside the cab. Hector still is able to reach for his
radio, as blood sprays from the hole in the side of his
head.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
Move!!
                                                            
Al-Rubaie throws a bomb in the back of the truck. Hector
his the gas as he dies. The truck jumps forward with a
sudden burst of speed and crashes into the enclosed bus
bench. The truck explodes shaking the entire area.
                                                            
THE TWO VANS
                                                            
speed away from the scene.

61.

James walks away from one of the lead DETECTIVES handling
the investigation. James heads for Jake and the rest of the
men.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Right now they think that it may
be a drive by.
                                                            
                       JAKE
A drive by. And the crash made
the truck blow up?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
It looks like he didn't hit it
that hard. I don't want to drive
one of those trucks. There bombs
with wheels.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Did anyone contact his family?
                                                            
                       ERIC
I think HR is taking care of that
right now.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Could someone go and find out.
They might be wondering why he
didn't come home last night.
                                                            
 
INT. SECURITY OFFICE - (CAMERA ROOM) - DAY
                                                            
Jake sits at the large bank of televisions. He is rewinding
and playing back the video taken from the camera closes to
the scene of Hector's death. The image on the television is
just of the truck coming into view hitting the bus bench and
exploding.
                                                            
TELEVISION MONITOR
                                                            
we move in closer to see Jake slow down the images frame by
frame. The truck explodes a split second before it hits the
bus bench in closer.
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (Out loud)
What the hell...
                                                            
Jake slowing rewinds the tape again and watches it slowly
once more. He sees the truck explode before hitting the bus
bench. He tries to zoom the camera in as tight as he can

62.

get it; however, he can not see the van speeding away from
the scene.
                                                            
The image on the screen is very blurry making it difficult
to see anything else.
                                                            
Chris walks into the room and stands behind Jake. Chris
watches as the video plays out again on one of the monitors.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What have you got?
                                                            
                       JAKE
Watch this. You tell me,
                                                            
Jake plays the video once again. Chris looks at the monitor
closely, suddenly his eyes open wide.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
No fucking way. It exploded
before it hit the bus bench. But,
how did it do that.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Did they find a bullet hole in the
gas tank?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
No, the report just said that the
truck exploded on impacting the
bus stop. Something about the
fuel tank being full and when it
hit, that's what caused the
explodion.
                                                            
Jake takes the tape out of the machine. He puts it into his
gym bag.
                                                            
                       JAKE
We need to show James this tape.
                                                            
 
INT. JAMES TODD'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
James sits behind a metal desk with a Formica top that looks
like wood. James desk is clean except for a large calender,
the ones that you can write on.
                                                            
Jake and Chris stand in front of the desk. Jake looks at
the walls, which are covered with awards and medals from his
time in the military.
                                                            
James sits with a file open in front of him.
                                                            

63.

                       JAMES
I've seen the video. I've seen
the same thing you've seen. I
can't get Fox to reopen the
investagion.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Did you show him the tape?
                                                            
                       JAMES
He didn't care. He's going by
what the Spring Gardens police
department is telling him. I'm
trying to get the chef of Police
to look at it.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What do you think it was?
                                                            
                       JAMES
      (pause)
I don't know. But it wasn't a
defect in the truck, I'll tell you
that.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Will you let us know what they are
gonna do?
                                                            
                       JAMES
I will...that is if they do
anything.
                                                            
 
EXT. HECTOR'S FUNERAL - GRAVE SIGHT - DAY
                                                            
Family and friends watch as the casket is slowly lowered
into the grave. Everyone is quiet. Jake looks around at
everyone who is there. He spots Brenda across from him.
                                                            
BRENDA
                                                            
looks across at Jake standing with Chris, Eric and Alex.
Each one of the young men are dressed in black suits looking
sad for their fallen friend.
                                                            
JAMES TODD stands near by. He is also dressed in black with
dark sunglasses.
                                                            
James shakes his head at Jake.
                                                            
 

64.

EXT. UPPER LEVER - PARKING LOT - DAY
                                                            
Jake and Chris are watching the traffic below them. Jake is
looking down at the street that Hector was killed on.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I just want to know what was going
on down there. What the hell got
Hector killed?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We may never find out what happen.
Or it's going to be something
that the police over looked.
                                                            
                       JAKE
I'm not gonna give up. I just
hate the fact that this happen so
close to Christmas.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Hey, how are you and Brenda doing?
How was your date?
                                                            
                       JAKE
It was amazing. I invited her to
the Christmas party. Now, I don't
know if there should be a
Christmas party.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Yeah...that might be kind of
disrespectful.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Disrespectful or not. My Mom is
still gonna have the party. It's
tradition. I just feel funny
about it. I just hope she doesn't
try and fix me up again.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
She keeps trying to fix you up.
Why? She knows you have a
girlfriend, right?
                                                            
                       JAKE
No, I haven't told her yet. I
know if we do have the party,
she'll invite Christie Young. Her
Mom is my Mom's best friend.
                                                            

65.

                       CHRIS
She's the one your Mom is trying
to fix you up with? What does she
look like. You can introduce me.
Now that you have a girlfriend.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Yeah, well...if you still feel
that it's disrespectful to have a
party after a death, you don't
have to come. I don't have a
choise.
                                                            
 
INT. SECURITY OFFICE - LOCKER ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Jake and Chris are changing there clothes. The room is empty
and quiet.
                                                            
                       JAKE
So what do you want to eat?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
The girl that works at the
bookstore.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Yeah well...
                                                            
A SOUND
                                                            
of a door closing.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What the hell was that?
                                                            
                       JAKE
Go look...
                                                            
 
INT. JAMES OFFICE - NIGHT
                                                            
Jake slowly opens the door to the office. James sits behind
his desk with a bottle of whiskey and a small glass in front
of him.
                                                            
                       JAMES
What do you two want?
                                                            
James pours another glass full of whiskey.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Get out of here!
                                                            

66.

                       CHRIS
We were just leaving.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Just do you know...they are
letting me go. I have till the
end of Christmas.
                                                            
                       JAKE
What? Why?
                                                            
James drinks the whiskey till the glass is drained.
                                                            
                       JAMES
The company doesn't like it when
one of the guards died on duty.
                                                            
James reaches into his desk and puts two more small glasses
on the desk.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Sit down!! Have a drink.
                                                            
Chris quickly sits down.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Thank you...sir.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Do you want to talk about this? Do
you need me to take you home.
                                                            
                       JAMES
No...I want to get drunk. If you
want to get drunk with me..sit
down.
                                                            
James hands Jake his drink.
                                                            
                       JAMES
I put you Marcus, as my
replacement. I gave the company
your name.
                                                            
                       JAKE
What? Are you kidding? Why me?
                                                            
                       JAMES
Your a born fucking leader. Your
fellow guards or friends or what
ever the fuck they are to you,
they listen for some reason.
                                                            

67.

                       CHRIS
      (Finishes his
       drink)
What about me?
                                                            
                       JAMES
What about you? They wanted a
leader...not a dumb shit.
                                                            
James fills Chris's glass.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Oh...
                                                            
                       JAMES
Don't worry. I'll show you what
you need to know.
                                                            
                       JAKE
And what if I say no?
                                                            
James sits back in his chair.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Then your the dumb shit?
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (Shakes his head)
Okay...
                                                            
                       JAMES
If you still want to be a police
officer, the company will let you.
It's all up to you.
                                                            
Jake takes a long sip from his glass.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Now get the hell out of my
office!!
                                                            
 
EXT. JAKE'S MOTHER'S HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
A two story home. Looks like a house you would find on the
same street as Leave it Beaver. Very nice with a well
groomed yard and decorated with Christmas lights, the scene
is very Norman Rockwell.
                                                            
 

68.

INT. JAKE'S MOTHER'S HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
The house is filled with people. An eight foot Christmas
tree reaches almost towards the second floor. A fire is
going in the large fireplace and a few guess are standing
around it.
                                                            
Jack stands talking to a very pretty blond. She is dressed
in a short black dress. Jake just nods his head as she does
all the talking.
                                                            
                       CHRISTIE
I'm so glad your Mom invited me
tonight. I haven't seen you in so
long.
                                                            
Jake keeps nodding his head at her.
                                                            
                       CHRISTIE
What did you ask Santa for this
year?
                                                            
Chris walks up behind Jake.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Chris Page, this is Christie
Young, Christie Young, Chris Page.
                                                            
Christie barely shakes his hand, before she turns her
attention back to Jake.
                                                            
                       CHRISTIE
Is the mall really busy? I
haven't been down there yet?
                                                            
Chris spots Brenda walk into the room. She just arrived
since she is still wearing her coat.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Hey Jake isn't that your
girlfriend?
                                                            
Jake and Christie both turn around. Christie sees Brenda
and frowns.
                                                            
Jake walks away, leaving Chris and Christie standing
together, Christie looks for a way out.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
She's very pretty. Jake's
girlfriend.
                                                            

69.

                       CHRISTIE
How serious are they?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Very serious. So...are you having
a good time?
                                                            
                       CHRISTIE
      (Aggravated)
What about your friend, Eric?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
      (A breath)
He's married.
                                                            
Christie turns and walks away.
                                                            
Jake walks up to Brenda who kisses him on the lips. She
takes off her coat and is wearing a skin tight red dress.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Wow...that's a nice dress. Sorry
for my eyes poping out of my head.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
That's alright. That's the affect
I was looking for.
                                                            
BETTY WATERS
                                                            
Jake's mother walks up to the couple. She kisses Jake on
the cheek. Betty turns and looks at Brenda from head to
toe.
                                                            
                       BETTY
Hey honey. Are you going to
introduce me to your very
beautiful friend?
                                                            
Brenda looks very embarrassed by what Betty is saying about
her.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Mom...this is my friend. Brenda
Morris. She works at the mall
with me.
                                                            
                       BETTY
I'm so glad you could come to our
party. We do this every year.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
I love your home.
                                                            

70.

                       BETTY
Thank you. I love that dress.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Mom...why don't you introduce
Christie to Chris?
                                                            
Chris and Christie still stand in the same place Jake and
Brenda left them. Christie looks at the fire in the
fireplace as Chris keeps talking to her.
                                                            
                       BETTY
I don't like your friend all that
much. He strikes me as being very
weird.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Mom...where is your Christmas
sprit? Come on.
                                                            
                       BETTY
Okay. I'll see you guys later.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
It was nice meeting you.
                                                            
Jake and Brenda watch as Betty stops Chris from talking. She
appears to be smoothing the situation out for Chris to get
to know Christie.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Why would you do that to that poor
girl?
                                                            
                       JAKE
What? He's a nice guy. When he
wants to be. You just have to get
to know him.
                                                            
Brenda keeps watching as Betty tries to sell Chris to
Christie. Christie stands there with her arms crossed
listening to Betty.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Do you want to see the room I grew
up in?
                                                            
The party is going full speed ahead. No one would even
notice if they left.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Your room?
                                                            
 

71.

INT. JAKE'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
The room looks like a high school senior lives in it. It
has posters of sports stars, and a woman in her underwear
laying across a red sports car. The bed is near a large
window overlooking the street.
                                                            
THE DOOR
                                                            
burst open and Jake and Brenda stumble inside kissing each
other. Jake moves Brenda towards the wall near his bed.
Brenda is now up against the wall. Jake moves his hand down
and pulls up her dress. She pulls down her black panties
and throws them across the room.
                                                            
Brenda quickly starts to unbuckle the belt on his pants. She
pulls his pants down all the way to the floor. Jake picks
Brenda up off the ground and presses her up against the
wall.

She wraps her legs tight around Jake as he lifts up and
slowly enters her. Jake slowly lifts her again to get a
better grip and she lets out a loud moan. Jake now lifts
her up and down against the wall. Brenda starts to moan
with each lift.
                                                            
 
INT. LIVING ROOM / KITCHEN - NIGHT
                                                            
Alex and Eric are filling their plates with food. The table
in front of them looks like the buffet you would find at a
hotel restaurant in Las Vegas. Turkey, ham, roast beef,
potatoes, the food seems to go on and on.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Have you ever seen so much food.
                                                            
                       ALEX
It is very nice. It is very nice
every year. In my country we would
have something like this on
Christmas Eve.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Do you miss it? Around this time.
                                                            
                       ALEX
      (A moment)
Yeah...I do miss it. But, being
here with friends helps.
                                                            
 

72.

EXT. HOUSE - DRIVEWAY - LATER - NIGHT
                                                            
Jake, Brenda, and Chris stand in the driveway talking. Most
of the cars are gone and the party is over.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Brenda...do you have any friends
you can fix me up with?
                                                            
                       JAKE
What happened with Christie? I saw
you guys talking.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Yeah, well...she likes you more.
She kept asking how serious you
guys are.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
What?
                                                            
Brenda holds Jake tight in her arms.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Tell her to bad. She can find her
own man.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
You don't have any friends you can
fix me up with...do you?
                                                            
                       BRENDA
That depends on what kind of girl
your looking for? Do you want a
nice girl? Do you want a bad
girl? A sexy girl? A straight
whore.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Why can't she be a combination of
all of them.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
      (pause)
She can be a combination of all of
them. But that's up to you. A
woman knows if she is going to
sleep with you the moment she
meets you. Even if she's a
straight whore, it doesn't mean
your getting fucked on the first
date.
                                                            

73.

                       JAKE
I guess that's good to know.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
I know someone...we can double
date. She's perfect for you.
Trust me.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Why is it when someone tell me
that, it always makes me nervous?
                                                            
 
INT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
In the middle of the warehouse is Al-Rubaie sitting in a
chair in front of a video camera. The video camera is set
up on a tri-pod. He press a button on a small remote,
turning the camera on to record.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
      (Into camera)
By the time you see this video, it
will be to late. I would have
destroyed on of your major
shopping centers. During a
holiday that is all about money.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie picks up a machine gun that was on the floor next
to the chair.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
You America's only understand
violence, so that is what you will
get. You will after this, no one
will be the same.
                                                            
 
INT. BRENDA'S APARTMENT - NIGHT
                                                            
The door bell in the apartment rings. Jake opens the door.
Chris stands in the doorway, he is dressed in a black top
coat, white shirt, black tie and black dress pants.
                                                            
Jake is also dressed up in a light blue designer long sleeve
dress shirt and navy blue tie. He is also wearing navy blue
dress pants.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We are just going to dinner and a
movie right?
                                                            

74.

                       JAKE
What about you. Why are you all
dressed up?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
All my other clothes are dirty.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Sure.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Where are the girls?
                                                            
From the bathroom we can hear talking and laughing.
                                                            
                       JAKE
There still gettting ready.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What does my date look like?
                                                            
                       JAKE
Wow...she is nice looking.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Bullshit...
                                                            
                       JAKE
I'm not kidding. She's hot.
                                                            
Chris begins to adjust his tie.
                                                            
                       JAKE
What the hell's wrong with you?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Nothing...
                                                            
The door to the bathroom opens and Brenda walks out first.
She is followed close behind by VERONICA HARRIS, 22 years
old, stunning, with long black hair, and big brown eyes.
What stands out about her is her large breast, but not to
make her look freakiest, more like Jessica Rabbit.
                                                            
Brenda and Veronica stand next to each other for a moment.
They both look like cocktail waitresses in there low cut and
short dresses.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Chris...I want you to meet my
friend Veronica Harris.
                                                            

75.

Veronica slowly walks up to Chris and kisses him on the
cheek. She leans into William to make sure he gets a good
look at her breast. Which look like they are going to pop
out of her dress.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
Take it easy Veronica, Jake looks
nervous enough.
                                                            
                       VERONICA
It's nice to meet you.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
It's nice to meet you to.
                                                            
Brenda kisses Jake on the lips.
                                                            
                       JAKE
You look amazining.
                                                            
Brenda tries to adjust the tight short dress. She tugs on
the front exposing more of her breast.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
I think I gained weight since I
bought this last week.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Now you look unbelivable.
                                                            
                       BRENDA
I look unbelivable or my tits do?
                                                            
                       JAKE
Ah..both.
                                                            
                       VERONICA
What movie are we gonna see?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I don't know...what's playing
that's good?
                                                            
                       JAKE

Eric burst into the office.
                                                            
                       JAMES
      (A moment)
Yeah...we could be under some kind
of attack. You need to send
everyone you have down here. Send
them now!!
                                                            
                       ERIC
That might not be enough.
                                                            

89.

                       JAMES
No!! I am not going to hold
tight. I am going to help the
people in my shopping center.
                                                            
James closes the phone hanging it up. He walks over and
unlocks a large metal locker. The inside of the locker is
filled with semi-automatic weapons, rifles, and handguns
hang or are neatly standing next to each other. Fifty to
sixty boxes of ammo are stacked next to the weapons.
                                                            
                       ERIC
What are we going to do?
                                                            
James hands Eric a handgun and a box of ammo.
                                                            
                       JAMES
We are going to put a stop to all
this. What ever it is. This is
the real thing.
                                                            
James clicks on his radio.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Everyone listen up!! I need you
to get back here!!
                                                            
 
INT. SHOPPING CENTER - MALL AREA - NIGHT
                                                            
One of AL-RUBAIE'S MEN walks through the panicked Shoppers.
His army is now easy to spot. Jake is running down the
escalator.

He doesn't think twice and jumps off half way down. The
Terrorist is knocked down hard. Jake punches him across the
face.
                                                            
Jake reaches into the Terrorist coat and yanks out his
machine gun. The Terrorist rolls on the ground and reaches
for a gun he has strapped to his ankle.
                                                            
The Terrorist turns and points his gun at Jake.
                                                            
                       JAKE
Shit!! You mother fucker!!!
                                                            
Jake fires the machine gun and cuts the Terrorist in half.
                                                            
A TERRORIST
                                                            
FIRES down at Jake from the second level of the parking lot.

INT. SECOND LEVEL - NIGHT
                                                            
The Terrorist keeps shooting at Jake. The Terrorist sees
Chris running behind him, before he can react. Chris pushes
him off and over the glass rail. The Terrorist falls to his
death.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
      (Into radio)
Todd wants us to get to the
office. I will meet you there..
                                                            
 
EXT. PARKING STRUCTURE - NIGHT
                                                            
The parking lot is in chaos, Shoppers are running in fear,
cars are crashing into each other as they try to escape the
shopping center.
                                                            
 
INT. SECURITY OFFICE - CAMERA ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Inside the camera room James spots two of AL-RUBAIE'S MEN in
the hallway, leading to the security office. The two men
look up at the camera and shoot it. The monitor goes to
white noise.
                                                            
                       JAMES
What the fuck!
                                                            
 
INT. HALLWAY - NIGHT
                                                            
The two Terrorist stand in the hallway facing the door to
the security office. From their coats, they pull out
machine guns. Before they can get a shot off, the door to
the office opens.
                                                            
The two Terrorist are hit with a hail of gunfire from James
and Eric.
                                                            
                       JAKE (O.S.)
What is going on in there? I can
hear the shooting from here.
                                                            
                       JAMES
      (Into radio)
Yeah...that was us. Watch your
back coming this way.
                                                            
 

91.

EXT. TOP FLOOR PARKING LOT - NIGHT
                                                            
Al-Rubaie and four of this men follow him to the wall at the
end of the parking lot. They have to avoid cars that are
racing out of the lot. One car comes very close to
Al-Rubaie almost hitting him.
                                                            
AL-RUBAIE
                                                            
shoots the car. He hits the young woman driving killing her
and causing her to crash into another car trying to turn
down the drive way to the next level of the parking
structure.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
Fucking bitch!!
                                                            
The five of them make it to the wall. The wall is chest
level and makes it easy to look over into the streets below
and the parking lot beneath them.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie quickly takes off his backpack and begins to piece
together a high powered rifle. The rifle looks like
something from a science fiction movie
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
Make sure no one gets up here.
                                                            
The rifle is finished and Al-Rubaie rest it on the wall.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE
Now it's my turn.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie looks through the scope on the rifle.
                                                            
THE CROSS HAIRS
                                                            
fall on the lead POLICE CAR. Two clicks on the scope and
now the cross hairs are on the Police Officer driving the
car. The Police Officer is shot through the windshield
through the head.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie looks from behind the rifle to see the POLICE CAR
turns and crash. Al-Rubaie fires another shot at the second
POLICE CAR.
                                                            
Al-Rubaie runs towards the other side of the wall's parking
lot. He looks down at the street where he planted the
bombs. POLICE CARS begin to line the street.
                                                            

92.

Al-Rubaie takes out an I-phone and punches in a code on the
panel. Suddenly the street below explodes, all the POLICE
CARS and the OFFICERS inside them killed as the cars
explode.
                                                            
The Shoppers that were trying to escape the shopping center
through one of the exits, they are thrown back inside by the
bomb blast and some are ripped to pieces by the chain
reaction explosions.
                                                            
MALL ENTRANCE
                                                            
the front entrance explodes as the street and two POLICE
CARS fly into the shopping center. The POLICE CARS crash
into SHOPPERS trying to escape.
                                                            
AL-RUBAIE
                                                            
looks down onto the street and then jumps back and ducks
down. A twenty foot high wall of fire shoots up as if the
entire street below is a title wave of fire and debris.
                                                            
A POLICE CAR land on the parking lot a hundred yards away
from them. AL-RUBAIE and the four GUARDS look up to see if
anything else is going to fall down on them.
                                                            
BODIES
                                                            
still on fire begin to land with hard thuds on the abandoned
cars and on the concrete of the parking lot.
                                                            
AL-RUBAIE can see POLICE CARS now stopping, not wanting to
met the same fate of the ones that went in before them.
                                                            
 
EXT. MALL - LOWER LEVER PARKING LOT - NIGHT
                                                            
Alex is taking a large bag out of the truck of his car.
Shoppers and cars race passed him. He unzips the bag and
takes out his own machine gun.
                                                            
The bag is loaded with weapons and bullets. Alex grabs the
bag and runs back inside the shopping center.
                                                            
 
INT. SECURITY OFFICE - NIGHT
                                                            
James is handing out weapons to Jake, Chris, and Eric. James
cell phone suddenly rings.
                                                            
                       JAMES
It's about time. We were almost
killed. Where are you people?
What do you mean the T.V.? What
            (MORE)

93.

                       JAMES (cont'd)
we are dealing with?
                                                            
James turns around and switches the television on. One the
television screen is Al-Rubaie. It is the video he made in
the warehouse.
                                                            
                       JAMES
What does it mean? Why are we
under attack? Who is this guy?
Well, you guys need to hurry up
and do something!
                                                            
James looks at his cell phone.
                                                            
                       JAMES
They told me to hold tight. And
hung up on me.
                                                            
The GUARDS watch the television as Al-Rubaie tells everyone
who is watching his plan. The video is the one that
Al-Rubaie made in the warehouse.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE (O.S.)
Everyone will be taught a lesson
tonight. My men and myself will
go down in history tonight. We
will be heros in the Islam world.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Are you fucking kidding me?
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE (O.S.)
America will learn to live in fear
again. You will all live in fear
for now on.
                                                            
The television screen now shows Al-Rubaie from a live feed
being shot from a helicopter camera.
                                                            
                       AL-RUBAIE (O.S)
My people are being killed inside
their own homes, farmers are
unable to work on there own lands,
innocent children are being
oppressed.
                                                            
                       JAMES
That looks like the North side of
the parking lot. The one facing
all the major streets.
                                                            

94.

                       CHRIS
That's a perfect place to hit who
ever is trying to get in here.
                                                            
THE TELEVISION
                                                            
now shows Al-Rubaie firing at the POLICE CARS.
                                                            
                       JAKE
We need to stop him. We need to
stop him now!
                                                            
                       JAMES
He's not shooting paint balls out
of that gun of his. Those are
real bullets.
                                                            
Jake checks the bullets in his gun.
                                                            
                       JAKE
So are mine.
                                                            
Jake looks at Chris. Chris slaps a magazine into his
machine gun.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
The devil hates couards.
                                                            
                       ERIC
This is for Hector.
                                                            
                       ALEX
For Hector..
                                                            
                       NEWSCASTER (O.S.)
We are getting reports that the
Terrorist have already taken out
the S.W.A.T. team that was sent in
to stop them.
                                                            
On the screen is a S.W.A.T. being hit with bullets from
Al-Rubaie high powered rifle. The S.W.A.T. flips over onto
the side of the road.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
All that shit is going on right
now as we speak.
                                                            
Alex takes out an German special forces machine gun from his
bag. He takes out another one and puts it on the table. He
then pulls out two more hand guns. One a Desert Eagle, the
other a 357. Magnum.
                                                            

95.

                       ERIC
I wanted to know what was in the
bag. But now It just bring up
more questions.
                                                            
James puts his small handgun down on the table.
                                                            
                       JAMES
I'll take this one instead, if
you don't mine.
                                                            
James holds a small German made sub machine gun. He takes
three magazines that Alex hands him. He puts his handgun
back into its holster inside his jacket.
                                                            
                       ALEX
It's all yours boss..
                                                            
                       JAKE
Eric, checks the cameras and check
what there doing.
                                                            
CAMERA ROOM
                                                            
on every monitor there is one of AL-RUBAIE'S MEN. They are
at every exit and at every escalator.
                                                            
                       ERIC
There all over the place. But
there not doing anything. There
just waiting.
                                                            
The rest of the Guards are now looking at the monitors.
                                                            
                       JAMES
There waiting for the army.
                                                            
                       JAKE
No..there waiting for the news and
there cameras.
                                                            
                       ERIC

INT. SHOPPING CENTER - LOWER LEVEL - NIGHT
                                                            
James leads the five Guards out of the hallway. Before they
make it out into the mall area, Al-Ghazi starts shooting at
them from inside a Bed, Bath and Beyond. The Guards come
out of the hallway one by one.
                                                            

96.

James fires two short burst from his machine gun at
Al-Ghazi. Al-Ghazi ducks back inside the store. He looks
back and FIRES at the other Guards who dive behind trash
cans, benches, and information signs.
                                                            
Al-Ghazi spots Eric who is the last one out of the hallway.
He turns and starts shooting at Eric. Eric runs and slides
behind a marble planter that is near the center walkway.
                                                            
Chucks of the planter are blown off by the bullets
Al-Ghazi's machine gun. Eric crouches down as low as he
can, without being shot.
                                                            
JAMES
                                                            
carefully takes aim with his handgun. Al-Ghazi takes his
focus off of Eric and turns to the other Guards. James
fires a single shot that hits Al-Ghazi in the head.
                                                            
                       JAMES
Lets go!!
                                                            
 
INT. MALL MAIN LOBBY - NIGHT
                                                            
The area of the shopping center is where the four main
department stores branch off. Two Terrorist are in the
middle of a shootout with three of the SPRING GARDEN'S
POLICE OFFICERS.
                                                            
James is leading the group. He hears the gunfire. James
holds up his right arm and makes a fist. The three Guards
stop in there tracks.
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (Moves up to James)
Who is that? Who are they
shooting at?
                                                            
James peeks around the wall which is at the corner of the
main lobby.
                                                            
                       JAMES
The Police...
                                                            
                       CHRIS
How'd they get in here?
                                                            
                       JAMES
The mall Police.
                                                            
James looks again and can see that the two Terrorist are
moving in on the three Police Officers.
                                                            

97.

                       JAMES
They need our help.
                                                            
James runs out from around the wall and starts spraying
bullets from his machine gun at the two Terrorist.
                                                            
BULLETS
                                                            
fly everywhere. One of the Terrorist is hit in the center of
the chest and falls backward. The other Terrorist takes off
his coat.
                                                            
Jake realizes what it means when the coat comes off.
                                                            
                       JAKE
      (Yelling)
Everybody down!!!!
                                                            
James is ten feet ahead of the Guards and when the Terrorist
explodes. James is ripped to pieces by the steel ball
bearings.
                                                            
Chris slowing gets up and lets out a loud scream of pain.
There is steel ball ripped though his middle finger. Blood
is pouring from the wound.
                                                            
                       ALEX
Shut the fuck up...it's just a
finger.
