NICK and SANDY are at home watching t.v.

There is the SOUND of a DOORBELL.

Nick gets up and goes to the door.

It's GARY, Nick's partner and best friend and his wife PAT
with Gidget, her pet shitzu, in her arms.
                                                            
                       NICK
Come on in, we were just watching
a movie.

                       NICK
Yeah, it's her favorite.
                                                            
                       GARY
Damn Sandy, how many times can you
watch the same movie?
                                                            
                       SANDY
There's just something about it.
                                                            
                       PAT
Don't listen to them honey, I like
it too. You haven't changed your
mind about what we were talking
about have you?
                                                            
                       SANDY
No, sorry I'm not the sharing
type. I like to keep my men all to
myself.
                                                            
                       PAT
Ok, let me know if you ever change
your mind.

In the background you hear Patrick Swayze saying "DITTO."
                                                            
                       GARY

                       GARY
No, I'm trying to keep up with the
adam's family.
                                                            
                       NICK
I couldn't have gottin my camaro
without my bonus.
                                                            
                       GARY
Same here.
                                                            
                       SANDY
Next time you boys get a bonus,
it's our turn.
                                                            
                       NICK
No problem.
                                                            
                       GARY
Come on out and take a look at it.
                                                            
Gary and Nick walk out.
                                                            
OUTSIDE
                                                            
Nick and Gary are looking over Gary's new car.
                                                            
                       NICK
Looks nice, hows it sound?
                                                            
Gary STARTS IT UP and REVS THE ENGINE.
                                                            
                       NICK
Not bad for a ford.
                                                            
                       GARY
It'll beat your camero.
                                                            

3.

                       NICK
I doubt that.
                                                            
Sandy opens the door and yells to the boys.
                                                            
                       SANDY
You boys wanna stop arguing and
come watch the movie, it's
starting.
                                                            
Nick and Gary go back inside.
                                                            
INSIDE
                                                            
                       GARY
Ok, where's the beer and popcorn.
                                                            
Sandy and Pat walk out of the kitchen with beer and popcorn.
                                                            
                       SANDY
Here you go.
                                                            
                       GARY
Damn, you must have read my mind.
                                                            
                       PAT
That's not hard to do.
                                                            
After the movie Gary and Pat get up to leave.
                                                            
                       GARY
I guess we'd better get going.
                                                            
                       NICK
Ok, see you tomorrow.
                                                            
Gary and Pat get up and leave.
                                                            
                       NICK
Damn, I forgot to ask them if they
wanted anything else to eat.
                                                            
                       SANDY
Dummy.
                                                            
                       NICK
Stop calling me dummy.
                                                            
                       SANDY
You know, I think Pat wants you.
                                                            

4.

                       NICK
Well, maybe it's time for Gary to
take her to the eye doctor.
                                                            
                       SANDY
You ever get tempted for another
woman?
                                                            
                       NICK
I'd be lying if I said I didn't
have feelings and desires when I
see a hot woman, but I love you
and I don't think I would want to
go on if I ever lost you.
                                                            
                       SANDY
Ditto.
                                                            
 
EXT. THE RED JACK SALOON - NIGHT
                                                            
Nick pulls into parking lot, driving his new Camero.
                                                            
 
INT. THE RED JACK SALOON - NIGHT
                                                            
Nick stops off after work at The Red Jack Saloon. The bar is
full of beautiful woman.
                                                            
Nick walks in carrying a bag.
                                                            
Tall dark muscular man walks past Nick with two gorgeous
blond haired beauty's on their way out.
                                                            
                       GARY
      (looking at his
       watch)
About time you got here, where
have you been?
                                                            
Nick opens the bag that he brought in and pulls out a pair
of pink infant pj's.
                                                            
                       NICK
I stopped off and bought these for
the baby.
                                                            
                       GARY
      (looking confused)
I thought you said you didn't want
to know the sex.
                                                            

5.

                       NICK
I don't. Next week I'm buying a
blue pair.
                                                            
                       GARY
Speaking of pair, check out that
chick at the end of the bar.
                                                            
                       NICK
Why don't you go over and talk to
her?
                                                            
                       GARY
I need a couple ounces of courage
first.
                                                            
                       NICK
She looks friendly.
                                                            
                       GARY
So does her friend, you should
come with me.
                                                            
                       NICK
      (smiling)
You know I am a one woman man.
                                                            
                       NICK
Besides she would never go for a
plain looking guy like me.
                                                            
                       GARY
      (laughing)
You never know if you don't try.
Just show her your badge, maybe
she'll be impressed.
                                                            
                       NICK
Maybe I should show her my
handcuffs.
                                                            
                       GARY
Hey, you never know, it might turn
her on.
                                                            
Gary puts down his drink and stands up.
                                                            
                       GARY
Wish me luck.
                                                            
                       NICK
How could she possibly resist?
                                                            

6.

                       GARY
      (laughing)
That's true.
                                                            
Gary walks over to the end of the bar.
                                                            
STRANGER sitting on the other side of Nick turns and speaks
to Nick.
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON (STRANGER)
You should go and talk to her, I
saw her smile at you.
                                                            
                       NICK
No, I have a wonderful woman
waiting for me at home. Besides
she would never go for a plain
looking guy like me.
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON
I heard you refer to yourself as
plain before, you seem kind of
down on yourself.
                                                            
                       NICK
I've never been very self-
confident.
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON
What if I told you I could help
you feel better about yourself?
                                                            
                       NICK
      (laughing)
What are you a psychiatrist or
something?
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON
      (laughs)
No, I can give you a body you will
feel good about.
                                                            
                       NICK
You own a gym?
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON
No Nick, I mean a whole new body.
                                                            
                       NICK
How did you know my name?
                                                            
Dr Templeton pauses for a minute and thinks.
                                                            

7.

                       DR. TEMPLETON
I heard your friend call you Nick.
                                                            
                       NICK
What do you mean, a whole new
body?
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON
Nick, what if I told you I could
transfer your consciousness into a
different body?
                                                            
                       NICK
I heard there was some research
being done in that area, but I
didn't think we were that far
along.
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON
We are ready to start human
trials. We're looking for
volunteers.
                                                            
                       NICK
I don't think that's for me.
                                                            
Stranger pulls card out of his wallet and hands it to Nick.
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON
I understand, here take my card in
case you change your mind.
                                                            
Card reads "THE BODY SHOP" with Dr.Bryan Templeton's name at
the bottom.
                                                            
                       NICK
You Dr. Templeton?
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON
Yes.
                                                            
                       NICK
Ok, thanks, I'll give you a call
if I change my mind.
                                                            
Nick gets up and is about to leave the bar.
Sgt.DAVID SCALONE walks up to Nick. Sgt Scalone has had to
much to drink.
                                                            

8.

                       SGT. SCALONE
      (Slurring speech)
Hey Nnick, why don't you ggo over
there and talk to her. She is
definately a sstep up from Sandy.
                                                            
                       NICK
What do you mean by that?
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE
Well you know, you do make kkind
of an odd ccouple, kind of like
you and Gary.
                                                            
                       NICK
Kind of like you and Sgt. Brown.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE
How's that?
                                                            
                       NICK
Well you know he's smart and
you're, well you know.
                                                            
Nick walks out of the bar.
                                                            
 
INT. NICKS HOME - NIGHT
                                                            
Nick arrives at his home where he is greeted at the door by
his wife (SANDY).
                                                            
                       SANDY
      (cheerful)
Hi honey, why are you so late?
Trouble at work?
                                                            
                       NICK
No, I stopped off at The Red Jack
and had a drink with Gary.
                                                            
                       SANDY
Uh huh, and did you behave
yourself?
                                                            
                       NICK
Well there was this one hot chick
down at the end of the bar that I
think wanted to have my baby.
                                                            
                       SANDY
Yeah, well you know how some of
these woman are, they get a couple
of drinks in them and they'll go
            (MORE)

9.

                       SANDY (cont'd)
to bed with anyone.
                                                            
                       NICK
Yeah I know that's how I got you
in bed.
                                                            
                       SANDY
      (laughing)
Yeah, that's why I quit drinking.
                                                            
                       NICK
Very funny.
                                                            
                       SANDY
What's in the bag?
                                                            
                       NICK
Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I bought
these for the baby.
                                                            
                       SANDY
Oh how pretty, they'll look real
cute on Nick jr.
                                                            
                       NICK
It's going to be a boy? I thought
you said you didn't want to know
the sex.
                                                            
                       SANDY
I don't, but the way he's been
kicking, it has to be a boy.
                                                            
                       NICK
I'm sure girls can kick pretty
hard to.
                                                            
                       SANDY
Aren't you the one who is always
saying girls are weak?
                                                            
                       NICK
Yeah, but there's probably not
that much difference between a
baby boy and a baby girl.
                                                            
                       SANDY
No there's a difference, I'll
explain it to you some day.
                                                            

10.

                       NICK
Boy, your just full of them today,
aren't you.
                                                            
                       SANDY
      (moaning)
He's kicking now, here give me
your hand.
                                                            
Sandy takes Nick's hand and places it on her stomach.
                                                            
                       SANDY
There he goes, did you feel that?
                                                            
                       NICK
Man, that was hard, did it hurt.
                                                            
                       SANDY
Let me kick you in the ribs and
see how you like it.
                                                            
The DOORBELL RINGS.
                                                            
Nick walks over and opens the door. A very large black man
is standing in the doorway.
                                                            
                       NICK
Can I help you?
                                                            
                       INTRUDER
      (pulls out pistol
       with silencer)
Yes you can die!
                                                            
Intruder shoots nick twice in the chest. Sandy screams and
runs toward Nick but is shot in the head before she reaches
him.
                                                            
                       NICK
      (yelling/sobbing)
Sandy, Sandy, oh my god, please
no, are you ok, Sandy!!!
                                                            
There is no response from Sandy.
                                                            
                       NICK
      (sobbing)
Why... why are you doing this?
                                                            
There is no response from the intruder, he turns around and
walks out.
                                                            

11.

Nick gets up and runs to Sandy. She is breathing, but
unconscious. Nick dials 911.
                                                            
                       911 OPERATOR (v.o.)
911.
                                                            
                       NICK
      (breathing hard)
This is Nick Adams. My wife has
just been shot.
                                                            
                       911 OPERATOR (v.o.)
Who shot her?
                                                            
                       NICK
It was an intruder. He's gone,
please send help.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO
                                                            
Police and EMT's arrive.
                                                            
                       GARY
Nick... What happened?
                                                            
                       NICK
He just walked in and started
shooting.
                                                            
                       GARY
Who... who was it Nick?
                                                            
                       NICK
I don't know. I've never seen him
before.
                                                            
                       GARY
What did he look like?
                                                            
                       NICK
Black male, about 6'4" well
dressed, mid 30"s.
                                                            
                       GARY
Are you ok?
                                                            
                       NICK
He shot me twice in the chest,
luckily I had my vest on.
                                                            
Nick opens shirt and inspects vest. It has two bullets
embedded in it.
                                                            

12.

EMTs are taking sandy out.
                                                            
                       NICK

                       EMT

DR ZYSKOWSKI walks up to nick.
                                                            
                       DR ZYSKOWSKI
Are you Nick Adams?
                                                            
                       NICK
Yes, how is she?
                                                            
                       DR ZYSKOWSKI
I'm afraid it's not good Nick.
                                                            
                       NICK
      (tears in his eyes)
What do you mean... what do you
mean it's not good?
                                                            
                       DR ZYSKOWSKI
Her brain wave's are flat line.
                                                            
                       NICK
      (sobbing)
What does that mean, are you
telling me she is dead?
                                                            
                       DR ZYSKOWSKI
She still has a heartbeat and
pulse, but she is brain dead. She
is being kept alive by machines.
                                                            
                       NICK
Is there any chance that she could
get better?
                                                            
                       DR ZYSKOWSKI
I'm afraid not Nick. I'm sorry.
                                                            

13.

                       NICK
      (head in
       hands,sobbing)
My god, I can't believe this is
happening... wait doc... have you
heard about the research there
doing at the Body Shop to transfer
consciousness?
                                                            
                       DR ZYSKOWSKI
Yes I have Nick, but I'm afraid it
won't work... It won't work if she
is brain dead... Nick we need your
permission to take her off life
support.
                                                            
                       NICK
No... not yet... I just can't do
it... I can't... just a couple of
days doc... PLEASE..
                                                            
DR Zyskowski puts his hand on Nicks shoulder.
                                                            
                       DR ZYSKOWSKI
Ok Nick.

                       NICK
I told them to hold off. I just
can't do it. My gut is screaming
at me to hold off.
                                                            

14.

                       CAPT. HELDERMAN
Well... if it's one thing I've
learned in my twenty years of
service, it's to trust my gut.
                                                            
                       NICK
Sir, I would like to do the
investigation.
                                                            
                       CAPT. HELDERMAN
It's against department policy
Nick, you're personally involved.
                                                            
                       NICK
Please sir, I have to be involved,
I want to catch this guy.
                                                            
                       CAPT. HELDERMAN
We all do Nick. If I let you
handle this case, do you promise
me you won't do anything stupid?
                                                            
                       NICK
Yes sir, you have my word.
                                                            
                       CAPT. HELDERMAN
Ok Nick, I hope I won't regret
this. You and Sgt. Williams will
head up the investigation. Go and
meet with the sketch artist so we
can all see what this guy looks
like.
                                                            
Nick meets with the sketch artist. A sketch is made, but no
one recognizes him. Nick gets a copy and walks over to
Gary's office.
                                                            
                       NICK
Let's go Gary, we've got work to
do.
                                                            
                       GARY

                       NICK

Nick and Gary are in squad car headed downtown.
                                                            
                       GARY
So, where are we going?
                                                            
                       NICK
We're going downtown and show this
picture to every son of a bitch we
meet. Someone must know this
asshole.
                                                            
                       GARY
You have any idea why he did this?
                                                            
                       NICK
Gotta be drug related.
                                                            
                       GARY
Maybe you're getting too close.
                                                            
                       NICK
Maybe, seemed more like revenge.
                                                            
                       GARY
Maybe we should ask around at the
Doulbe L.
                                                            
                       NICK
That's my first stop.
                                                            
                       GARY
We'd better call for backup, the
captain said no one is to go there
without backup.
                                                            
                       NICK
I ain't got time for backup.
                                                            
Nick and Gary head for the Double L. A seedy bar in the
worst part of town were outlaw gangs hangout.
                                                            
 
INT. DOUBLE L - DAY
                                                            
Nick and Gary arrive at the Double L. It is very crowded for
this time of day. Everyone turns and stares at them as they
walk in. Nick and Gary walk up to the bar.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER LL
You boys lost?
                                                            

16.

Nick shows his badge, and pulls out the sketch.
                                                            
                       NICK
You know this guy?
                                                            
BARTENDER looks at the sketch, pauses for a moment, looks
around the bar and then back at Nick.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER LL
My advice to you is to leave,
while you still can.
                                                            
                       GARY
Tell us what we wanna know and
we'll leave.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER LL
I don't know anything.
                                                            
                       GARY
I don't believe you. Why don't you
do the right thing and tell us
where to find him.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER LL
Look guys, I'm trying to help you
out. You're in danger here.
                                                            
While Nick and Gary are talking to the bartender, four men
sneak up behind them. One of them (known as HAMMER) speaks.
                                                            
                       HAMMER
      (menacing stare)
You heard him mother fucker, get
the hell out.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER LL
Take it easy Hammer, they were
just leaving.
                                                            
                       NICK
We'll leave when we find out what
we want to know.
                                                            
Hammer strikes Nick on the side of the head. Gary gets up
and hits Hammer knocking him back. Nick and Gary put up a
good fight, but are eventually knocked to the floor. Hammer
kicks Gary repeatedly in the ribs and once in the head.

While their attention is on Gary, Nick gets to his pistol,
fires two rounds into the air. The four men back off.
Nick calls for backup. EMTs and police show up. Three of the
four men are taken into custody, but Hammer escapes.
                                                            
 

17.

INT. NICK AT HOSPITAL WITH GARY - DAY
                                                            
Nick is in the hospital emergency room, waiting to talk to
Dr ZYSKOWSKI. Dr Zyskowski finally walks out to talk to
Nick.
                                                            
                       NICK
How is he doc?
                                                            
                       DR ZYSKOWSKI
He doesn't have any broken bones.
He seems to have suffered a
concussion. We'll need to keep him
overnight.
                                                            
                       NICK
Can I see him?
                                                            
                       DR ZYSKOWSKI
He is under heavy sedation, why
don't you come back tomorow.
                                                            
                       NICK
Ok doc, I'll be back tomorrow.
                                                            
Nick walks over to Sandy's room. She is just lying there
looking lifeless, hooked up to machines. Nick holds her
hand.
                                                            
                       NICK
You're going to be ok honey, you
have to be, I can't go on without
you.
                                                            
A tear comes to Nick's eye as he leaves the room.
                                                            
Nick leaves hospital.
                                                            
 
INT. NICK BACK AT POLICE HEADQUARTERS - DAY

the incident.
                                                            
                       CAPT. HELDERMAN
Are you ok Nick?
                                                            
                       NICK

                       CAPT. HELDERMAN
How's Gary?
                                                            

18.

                       NICK
He got banged up pretty good. They
kept him in the hospital overnight
for observation.
                                                            
                       CAPT. HELDERMAN
What happened Nick?
                                                            
                       NICK
We were at the Double L, talking
to the bartender, when we were
jumped from behind by four men.
                                                            
                       CAPT. HELDERMAN
I'm sorry Nick, but I'm going to
have to take you off the case. I
should have never let you take it.
You're too close.
                                                            
                       NICK
Please don't take me off the case
sir. I need to be involved.
                                                            
                       CAPT. HELDERMAN
I'm sorry Nick, but I'm putting
you on paid leave. You need time
to get your head right.
                                                            
                       NICK
Sir I'm ok, I can handle this.
                                                            
                       CAPT. HELDERMAN
I'm sorry Nick, but I need your
weapon and your badge.
                                                            
Nick angrily hands the captain his badge and weapon and
storms out of the office.
                                                            
As Nick is walking out, he runs into Sgt.Scalone. Nick
overhears Sgt.Scalone talking to his partner Sgt. Brown.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE
I knew this would happen, he's too
small to be a cop.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE
Nice job Adams, Gary was a good
officer.
                                                            
                       NICK
He still is asshole.
                                                            
Nick leaves Captain Helderman's office.
                                                            
 

19.

EXT. NICK IN SQUAD CAR LEAVING POLICE HEADQUARTERS - DAY
                                                            
Nick is in his squad car driving home, when he hears a news
report on the radio.
                                                            
VOICES ON RADIO
                                                            
                       REPORTER
Rev. Hester, what is your
objection to Dr. Templeton's work?
                                                            
                       REV. HESTER
This is the work of the devil.
                                                            
                       REPORTER
How is this the work of the devil?
                                                            
                       REV. HESTER
All of this transferring
consciousness from one body to the
other. How do you know what's
being transferred. How do you know
that a demon hasn't gone through
the machine? You're not
transferring consciousness, you're
allowing demons to possess people.
                                                            
                       REPORTER
Dr. Templeton how do you respond
to what Rev. Hestler has said?
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON
His comments are so ridiculous
they are not worth responding to.
                                                            
Nick turns off the radio and pulls out the card that Dr.
Templeton gave him at the bar. He reads the number off the
card and calls Dr. Templeton.
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON (V.O.)
Hello.
                                                            
                       NICK
Hello is this Dr. Templeton?
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON (V.O.)
Yes it is, who is this?
                                                            
                       NICK
This is Nick Adams,you gave me
your card the other day.
                                                            

20.

                       DR. TEMPLETON (V.O.)
Oh yes Nick, did you change your
mind?
                                                            
                       NICK
Yes I did, I'd like to take you up
on your offer. Are you still
looking for volunteers?
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON (V.O.)
Yes I am Nick, I think Rev. Hester
has scarred people away.
                                                            
                       NICK
He's nuts.
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON (V.O.)
Can you be here tomorrow morning
at eight o'clock?
                                                            
                       NICK
Yes I can, see you tomorrow
morning then.
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON (V.O..)
Unfortunately I can't be there,
but go ahead and come in. The lab
techs. can take care of you.
                                                            
Nick is starting to have second thoughts
                                                            
                       NICK
Can they do the procedure?
                                                            
                       DR. TEMPLETON (V.O.)
Yes they can. The procedure is
surprisingly very simple.Don't eat
any meat and drink plenty of
water, preferably bottled or
filtered.
                                                            
                       NICK
Ok, I'll be there tomorrow morning
at eight o'clock.
                                                            
 
INT. MEETING WITH LAB TECH - DAY
                                                            
Nick arrives at the body shop and talks to lab tech.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Can I help you?
                                                            

21.

                       NICK
Yes, I'm Nick Adams. I Talked to
Dr Templeton yesterday.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Oh yes Mr. Adams, please fill out
these forms and I will take you
back when you're done
                                                            
Nick sits down and fills out the forms, and hands them back
to the lab tech.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
I see you're a police officer.
                                                            
                       NICK
Is that a problem?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
No, that's good. They are trying
to make this available to law
enforcement personnel only. Come
with me.
                                                            
Lab tech, takes Nick back to the lab.
                                                            
                       NICK
Doesn't look to complicated.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
It's surprisingly simple to do.
                                                            
                       NICK
You don't need Dr Templeton here?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
No, the procedure is very simple.
Dr Templeton is the only one who
could explain how it works, but
it's very simple to do.

It's kind of like driving a car. I
know how to drive it but have no
idea how it works.
                                                            
Lab tech gives Nick a quick checkup and then shows him the
cloned bodies they have in storage.
                                                            
                       NICK
Wow, I'm surprised you have so
many.
                                                            

22.

                       LAB TECH.
We're expecting a large demand if
they allow us to go public we will
have even more.
                                                            
                       NICK
How do you clone bodies that have
no soul?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
That I'm affraid is a closely
guarded trade secret.
                                                            
                       NICK
What has your success rate been.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
We had a little trouble with our
first few attempts, but since
then, we have been one hundred
percent succesful.
                                                            
                       NICK
What happens to my body?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
It will be stored here for you. We
would like to put you in at least
two different bodies.
                                                            
                       NICK
      (pointing to large
       african american
       body)
Can I start with that one?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Sure, have a seat and we will need
to strap this retractor harness to
your head.
                                                            
                       NICK
Will I feel anything?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Honestly, I'm not sure, if you
feel any pain or discomfort, raise
your right hand and we will stop
the procedure.
                                                            
                       NICK
If I feel any pain. I'm going to
have to shoot you.
                                                            

23.

Lab tech looks startled.
                                                            
                       NICK
Just kidding, Maybe we should wait
for Dr Templeton to get back.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
He's tied up in hearings. He may
not be back for awhile.
                                                            
                       NICK
I guess I have no choice. Ok,
let's do this thing.
                                                            
Lab tech finishes the hookup and starts the procedure,
flipping switches and monitoring gauges. A few minutes go by
and nothing happens.
                                                            
Nick is starting to think he should wait for Dr. Templeton.
                                                            
                       NICK
Maybe I should come back.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
I see the problem, your harness is
not tight enough.
                                                            
Lab tech tightens harness and starts the procedure again.
Within seconds Nicks eyes start to flutter and then close.
The eyes in the black body flutter and then open. Black body
( LEROY BROWN) Looks around, looks at his arms and hands.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Damn.... whooh... is that my
voice? I guess so... I can't
believe it. It actually worked.
                                                            
Leroy looks over at Nicks body.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Man... that's really strange to
look over there at my own body.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
How do you feel?
                                                            
                       LEROY
I feel great.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Was there any pain or discomfort
during the transfer?
                                                            

24.

                       LEROY
No, I just felt real light headed
for a second and and the next
thing I knew, I was in this body.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Great, we will have to keep you
here for a couple of hours. Let's
check your vitals.
                                                            
Lab tech. assistant checks vitals, blood pressure, pulse,
tempature, ect.
                                                            
                       LEROY
How do they look?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Good, we'll check you again before
you leave.
                                                            
TWO HOURS LATER
                                                            
Lab tech. assistant checks vitals again.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
      (hands nick ID)
Ok, everything looks good. We
would like to keep you in this
body for a while and then transfer
you to another body. Here is your
identification.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Leroy Brown?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Yes.
                                                            
                       LEROY
As in bad, bad?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Baddist man in the whole damn
town.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Great.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
We'll need to see you tomorrow
morning.
                                                            
Lab tech extends hand.
                                                            

25.

                       LEROY
Ok, see you tomorrow.
                                                            
Leroy shakes Lab techs hand, not relizing how hard he is
squeezing.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Whooh, easy with that grip.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Sorry.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
See you tomorrow, don't forget you
are responsible for that body.
                                                            
                       LEROY
No problem.
                                                            
Leroy turns and starts to walk away.
                                                            
                       LEROY
      (speaking under
       his breath)
That might be a problem.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
What's that?
                                                            
                       LEROY
Nothing, I didn't say anything.
                                                            
Leroy leaves lab banging his head on the way out.
                                                            
 
EXT. IN PERSONAL CAR (CAMERO) EN ROUTE TO DOUBLE L - NIGHT
                                                            
Leroy is leaving The Body Shop en route to the Double L
                                                            
                       LEROY
Ok Hammer, let's see how you like
Bad, Bad Leroy Brown.
                                                            
Leroy turns on radio, and to his surprise, Bad, Bad Leroy
Brown is on the radio.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Man, I can't believe this.
                                                            
Leroy drives off to the SOUNDS OF BAD, BAD LEROY BROWN.
                                                            
Leroy decides to stop and get a sandwich at the drive-thru.
Leroy gets his sandwich and is eating it in the parking lot,

26.

when he see's Hammer coming out of the restaurant. Leroy
follows Hammer out of the parking lot and through the hilly
streets of San Francisco.
After a few turns, Hammer realizes that he is being followed
and speeds off. Leroy speeds up to catch up with him and a
chase ensues. Hammer runs a red light in front of traffic,
Leroy swerves to miss oncoming traffic and hits a road sign,
knocking his fender into his tire. Leroy gets out and pulls
fender off tire, but Hammer is long gone.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Damn it...That's ok asshole I
think I know where you're headed.

                       LEROY
Hey mother fucker, I got a message
for you from Nick Adams.
                                                            
Leroy catches Hammer with a right hook to head, knocking him
down. Leroy waits for Hammer to get up, but he is
unconscious. Leroy smacks his face, finally bringing him
around.

                       LEROY
Where does he live?
                                                            
                       HAMMER

Leroy hits him again.
                                                            
                       HAMMER

                       RED DOG
      (pulls out knife)
Sometimes you find things you
ain't looking for.
                                                            
Red Dog SCREEMS in pain as Leroy BREAKS his arm.

Rider # 1 holds Leroy from behind while rider #2 hits him in
the stomach.

of money. We're here to collect.
                                                            
                       LEROY

you need to leave now.
                                                            
                       BIKER #2
Ok Bad, Bad Leroy Brown, but you'd
better find him before we do.
                                                            
All of the hells angels leave. GUNNING their ENGINES,
SPINNING TIRES and popping wheelies.
                                                            
Leroy heads back to the entrance.

The other two men attack Leroy with everything they have,
but Leroy puts them both on the ground, but during the
scuffle Coolaid escapes to his car (Dodge Challenger). Leroy
see's him getting away and runs to his car (Smart Car).
There is a LOUD ROAR as coolaid starts his car, he puts it
in gear and BURNS RUBBER as he pulls out of the lot. Leroy
squeezes into his Smart Car, it RATTLES and BANGS as he
starts up and HUMS LOUDLY as he pulls off in pursuit.
Coolaid is out of sight in seconds. Leroy pulls over to the
side of the road and gets out of the car, punching the roof
of the car in frustration. The top of the car crumbles.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Damn it, I think there is
something they forgot to tell me
about this body. I need a faster
car. Oh yeah, Gary, you just

outrun your squad car.

Leroy holds Sandy's hand and then rubs her stomach.
                                                            
                       LEROY
      (Eyes tearing)
I promise I'm going to get the son
of a bitch that did this.
                                                            
Gary puts his hand on Leroy's shoulder.

Let's go, I can't stand to see her

I don't suppose anybody brought
your car to the hospital did they?
                                                            
                       GARY
We'll have to take your car.
                                                            
As they get close to the car, Gary notices the top is caved
in.
                                                            
                       GARY
What happened to the car?
                                                            
                       LEROY
I got mad when I lost Coolaid and
pounded on the roof.

                       GARY
Is the Camaro drivable?
                                                            
                       LEROY
Barely, it's pulling hard to the
right.
                                                            
                       GARY
You taking it to the shop?

                       GARY
Ok, I'll go in first, give me five
minutes, then come in.
                                                            
                       LEROY

Hi Leroy, you looking for Coolaid?
                                                            
                       LEROY
Yeah, you seen him?
                                                            
                       BARTENDER CC
Haven't seen him tonight. He likes
to hang out with the girls. That's
his favorite on stage now.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Ok, thanks.

IN MEN'S ROOM.
                                                            
                       LEROY
The girl on stage now is Coolaid's
favorite. I'm going to check her
out and see what she knows.
                                                            
                       GARY
Sounds like fun.

                       LEROY
Strickly bussiness.

Right.
                                                            
Leroy see's his rather large penis for the first time.
                                                            
                       LEROY
WOW, look at that!
                                                            
                       MAN IN MEN'S ROOM
Hate to break your heart, but I
don't swing that way.
                                                            
Man shakes head, turns around and leaves men's room.
                                                            
                       GARY
Damn, sorry Nick, maybe you'll
have better luck with the
stripper.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Very funny, and don't call me Nick
dummy.
                                                            
                       GARY
Oops.
                                                            
Leroy leaves men's room, walks over to the stripper and puts
a twenty dollar bill in her G-string.
                                                            
                       DANCER
Would you like a private dance
honey?
                                                            
                       LEROY
Sure.
                                                            
Leroy and dancer walk over to private table.
                                                            
                       DANCER
It'll be twenty bucks honey.
                                                            
Leroy gives her twenty dollars.
She proceeds to give Leroy a lap dance.
                                                            
                       DANCER
Oh MY!
                                                            
                       LEROY
Like that baby?
                                                            

42.

                       DANCER
Oh YEAH!
                                                            
                       LEROY
Maybe I should be charging you.
                                                            
                       DANCER
I don't know about THAT.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Am I bigger than Coolaid?
                                                            
                       DANCER
You know Coolaid?
                                                            
                       LEROY
We've met. Do you know his real
name?
                                                            
                       DANCER
No, I just know him as Coolaid.
                                                            
                       DANCER
You looking to do business with
Coolaid?
                                                            
                       LEROY
I've got a big deal going down. I
need to deal directly with
Coolaid.
                                                            
                       DANCER
Coolaid's laying low. The Hell's
Angels are looking for him. You're
not a cop are you?
                                                            
                       LEROY
I look like a cop?
                                                            
                       DANCER
I don't guess a cop would be
letting me give him a lap dance.
Like I said Coolaid's laying low,
you'll have to go through joe.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Joe?
                                                            
                       DANCER
Yeah Joe Berry, he's Coolaids
right hand man. He's out of town
on business tonight. He'll be back
tomorrow. He's usually in here by
ten.
            (MORE)

                       DANCER (cont'd)
If you want to catch him earlier,
you can normally catch him over at
the View.
                                                            
                       LEROY
What's he look like?
                                                            
                       DANCER
Kind of dufis looking. Cross eyed
and buck teeth. You won't have any
trouble recognizing him.
                                                            
                       DANCER
That's the end of the song baby,
you want another dance?
                                                            
                       LEROY
No, I gotta get going. Thanks for
the dance.
                                                            
                       DANCER
Thank YOU.

                       GARY
You wanna head back over to my
place?
                                                            
                       LEROY
Yeah I guess... on second thought,
let's stop off at the Red Jack. I
could use a stiff drink.
                                                            
                       GARY
What's wrong with the drinks at
the Condor.
                                                            

44.

                       LEROY
Too expensive for my taste.
                                                            
                       GARY
I'm not sure they welcome your
kind at the Red Jack.
                                                            
                       LEROY
      (Laughing)
They'll have a hard time kicking
me out.

No, he's just a friend of mine.
I'm still on medical leave. This
is Leroy.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE
To bad he wasn't with you at the
Double L, instead of that
pipsqueak partner of yours.
                                                            
                       GARY
Nick held his own.

David jumps off Sgt Scalone's lap.
                                                            
                       DAVID
I'm sorry, I thought that was what
you wanted.

INT. WAKING UP AT GARY'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Leroy is waking up on Gary's couch to the smell of bacon and
eggs. It takes him a minute to figure out where he is. He
sits up and holds his head, hungover from last night.
                                                            
                       GARY
I see you're alive.
                                                            
                       LEROY
How much did I drink last night?
                                                            
                       GARY
Too much. Breakfast is ready.
You'll feel better if you can eat
something.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Not sure if I can handle bacon and
eggs right now.
                                                            
                       GARY
Try and eat what you can.
                                                            
                       LEROY
I'll try.
                                                            
Leroy gets up and walks to the table. Sits down and starts
to eat, slowly at first.
                                                            
                       GARY
Here, try some coffee.
                                                            
Leroy takes a sip of coffee.
                                                            
                       LEROY
These are good eggs, where did you
learn to cook.
                                                            
                       GARY
I worked my way through college as
a short order cook.
                                                            
Leroy devours his breakfast.
                                                            
                       GARY
I thought you couldn't eat?
                                                            
                       LEROY
I didn't think I could, this is
really good.

No, I mean the lab where I got
this body. That's what they call
it, the Body Shop.

Gary is driving fast, popping over the hilly streets of San
Francisco. Leroy is starting to feel nauseous.
                                                            
                       LEROY
You might want to slow down a
little bit, unless you want me to
redecorate your interior.
                                                            
                       GARY
You'll be ok.
                                                            
Leroy throws up.
                                                            
                       GARY
      (upset)
OH MAN!!!
                                                            
                       LEROY
I told you to slow down.
                                                            
Gary slows down.
                                                            
                       GARY
That better?
                                                            
                       LEROY
A little.
                                                            

49.

                       GARY
I wonder how Sgt. Scalone made out
at the Badlands?
                                                            
                       LEROY
      (Laughing)
I forgot about that.
                                                            
                       GARY
How did you know about David?
                                                            
                       LEROY
I could tell you, but I'd have to
shoot you. Let's just say
sometimes I drink to much.
                                                            
                       GARY
No kidding.

I see you made it back, you look a
bit haggerd.
                                                            
                       LEROY
I had a rough night.
                                                            
Lab tech notices the smell of vomit.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
I would have never guessed.
                                                            
Lab tech. looks at Gary.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Is he looking to volunteer?
                                                            
                       LEROY
No he is just giving me a ride. Is
there something you forgot to tell
me about this body?
                                                            

50.

                       LAB TECH.
What do you mean?
                                                            
                       LEROY
Well I don't know it seems to be
kind of ...STRONG!!!
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Oh yes, right, that model has been
genetically modified for extra
strength.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Well gee, I don't know, maybe you
should TELL people that!!!
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
I'm sorry, Dr Templeton was
supposed to handle this.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Is he here?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
No, he's still tied up in
hearings. Come on back, lets check
you out.
                                                            
Lab tech. takes Leroy in back and they give him a complete
checkup.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Ok, everything looks good. How do
you feel?
                                                            
                       LEROY
A bit hungover, other then that
ok.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
No strange, out of character
feelings?
                                                            
Leroy looks confused.
                                                            
                       LEROY
What do you mean?
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
You know, anything out of the
ordinary.
                                                            

51.

                       LEROY
No, not really.
                                                            
                       LAB TECH.
Ok, I guess we're done here. I
would like to keep you in that

                       JOE BERRY
That's me. What can I do for you?

                       GARY
We'd like to make a purchase.

                       JOE BERRY
When do you want it?
                                                            
                       GARY
As soon as Coolaid can meet us.
                                                            
                       JOE BERRY
All deals go though me.
                                                            
                       GARY
We deal through Coolaid or we
don't deal.
                                                            
                       JOE BERRY
I'll see if I can set it up, let
me give him a call, I'll be right
back.
                                                            
Joe gets up and walks towards the men's room, someone walks
up to him and says something to him as he looks over at
Leroy and Gary. Joe turns and walks towards exit.
                                                            
                       LEROY
I think we've been made.
                                                            
                       GARY
Let's stop him before he gets
away.
                                                            
Leroy and Gary get up and walk towards Joe.
                                                            
Joe runs towards exit. Leroy and gary run after him, but are
intercepted by a gang of hoodlums. One of them takes a swing
at Leroy. Leroy catches his fist and starts to squeeze, he
SCREEMS in PAIN as you hear the SOUNDS of BONES BEING
CRUSHED. Another one comes at him, Leroy picks him up and
throws him across the bar. The other men back off. Leroy
and Gary run in pursuit of Joe Berry.

into their car. The ENGINE ROARS when they start up and give
chase SQUEALING TIRES and BURNING RUBBER as they pull out.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Don't let this son of a bitch get
away.
                                                            
                       GARY
He ain't losing me.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Those Chargers are supposed to be
pretty fast.

Leroy and Gary chase Joe Berry and a passenger through the
hilly streets, both cars going airborne over the hills, with
the SOUND OF METAL STRIKING PAVEMENT as they come back down
to the road.

SPARKS FLY and there is the SOUND OF GRINDING METAL as their
chaises bottom out. They race through red lights as oncoming
traffic BLOW THEIR HORNS and SLAM ON BRAKES.

After a few minutes Leroy and Gary manage to pull along
side, as they do there is the SOUND OF GUNFIRE and
SHATTERING GLASS as the passenger pulls out his WEAPON and
OPENS FIRE. Gary backs off and follows from a distance.

Leroy pulls out his WEAPON and OPENS FIRE, SHATTERING HIS
REAR WINDOW. One bullet grazes Joe's head, causing him to
lose control and run off the road. There is the SOUND OF
CRUSHING METAL as their car rolls over and over. Leroy and
Gary quickly pull behind, running over to the car. Gary
pulls the unconscious passenger out as Leroy pulls Joe out
and puts on handcuffs.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Where is Coolaid?!!!
                                                            
                       JOE BERRY
At the supermarket.
                                                            
Leroy pulls out his weapon and points it at Joe Berry.
                                                            

54.

                       LEROY
Where is he?
                                                            
                       JOE BERRY
You ain't gonna shoot nobody.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Your right.
                                                            
Leroy puts his weapon back in his holster, and puts his
thumb on Joe Berry's head wound, applying pressure. Joe
Berry SCREAMS in PAIN..
                                                            
                       JOE BERRY
Ok,ok, he lives in Pacific
Heights.
                                                            
                       LEROY
What's his real name?
                                                            
                       JOE BERRY
Tyrone... Tyrone Booker.
                                                            
                       LEROY
That name sounds familiar.
                                                            
                       GARY
Any relation to Jamaal Booker?
                                                            
                       JOE BERRY
Jamaal was his brother.
                                                            
                       GARY
Jamaal was executed last week,
yo... Nick was the arresting
officer.
                                                            
There is the SOUND OF SIRENS as police and EMT's arrive on
scene. EMT's put Joe Berry and passenger in ambulance and
drive off.
                                                            
 
EXT. LEROY AND GARY IN CAR, LEAVING CRASH SCENE - DAY
                                                            
                       GARY
He doesn't strike me as someone
who would be Coolaid's righthand
man.
                                                            

55.

                       LEROY
Probably more like his lackey. He
sends him out to test the waters
and if everything looks ok, then
Coolaid steps in to make the deal.
                                                            
Gary makes call to headquarters on cell phone, talks to Sgt.
Scalone.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE (V.O.)
Sgt. Scalone.
                                                            
                       GARY
Hello, this is Gary, I have some
information for you on the Sandy
Adams case.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE (V.O.)
I'm not on the case any more, the
F.B.I. has taken over.
                                                            
                       GARY
Why does the F.B.I. want to get
involved with a small time drug
dealer.
                                                            
                       LEROY
F.B.I.?!!!
                                                            
                       GARY
Yeah, they've taken over the case.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE (V.O.)
Who was that?
                                                            
                       GARY
Leroy.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE (V.O.)
The same Leroy that sent me to the
Badlands.
                                                            
                       GARY
Yeaaah... did you have any luck
there?
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE (V.O.)
What do you think!!! If he were
here, I'd punch him in the nose.
                                                            
                       GARY
That would probably not be a good
idea.
                                                            

56.

                       SGT. SCALONE (V.O.)
Was there something you wanted
Williams? I know you must want
something.
                                                            
                       GARY
Well... now that you mention it, I
need the address of Tyrone Booker
in Pacific Heights.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE (V.O.)
Aren't you supposed to be on
medical leave?
                                                            
                       GARY
I got bored.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE (V.O.)
Alright Williams, hold on, just
remember you didn't get this from
me.
                                                            
                       LEROY
What did he say?
                                                            
                       GARY
He's getting the address.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Great.
                                                            
After a few minutes Sgt. Scalone comes back on the phone.
                                                            
                       SGT. SCALONE (V.O.)
Ok, it's 2538 Dogwood Lane. Don't
get caught nosing around down
there, the F.B.I said for us to
stay clear.
                                                            
                       GARY
Ok, Thanks.
                                                            
Gary hangs up the phone.
                                                            
                       LEROY
What's the address?
                                                            
                       GARY
2538 Dogwood Lane.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Let's go.
                                                            

57.

There is the SOUND OF ENGINE ROARING and TIRES SQUEALING as
Gary spins around and heads toward Dogwood Lane.
                                                            
 
EXT. TYRONE BOOKER (COOLAID'S) HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Leroy and Gary pull up to coolaid's house. The CAMERA SHOWS
the NUMBER ON the GATE, SHOWING the HEAVY IRON BARS and
SECURITY CAMERA's.
                                                            
                       GARY
This is no small time drug dealer.
                                                            
                       LEROY
      (pointing to
       security camera)
They know we're here, don't stop,
pull down the street a little.
                                                            
Gary pulls down the street. They sit and watch.
                                                            
                       GARY
I don't see any sign of the F.B.I.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Maybe they got someone on the
inside.
                                                            
                       GARY
They must have.
                                                            
A couple of hours go by, there is nothing going on.
                                                            
                       LEROY
I guess we might as well go,
there's nothing going on.
                                                            
                       GARY
      (looking thru
       binoculars)
Hold on, there's a car pulling up.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Who is it?
                                                            
                       GARY
Not sure, the driver looks
familiar, there are three girls in
mini skirts.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Let me see.
                                                            

58.

                       GARY
That's ok, I got it.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Let me see dummy, I might
recognize the guy.
                                                            
                       GARY
      (hands leroy the
       binoculars)

                       LEROY
I've seen him before... where...
where have I seen you... the
Double L, he works at the Double
L.
                                                            
                       GARY
Let me see.
                                                            
Leroy hands the binoculars back to Gary.
                                                            
                       GARY
You're right, that's where I've
seen him.
                                                            
                       LEROY
I'd bet the girls are prostitutes.
                                                            
                       GARY
That would be my bet, you got some
money I can borrow?
                                                            
                       LEROY
      (shaking his head)
Let's get outta here dummy.
                                                            
                       GARY
Man, you've changed, stop calling
me dummy, asshole.
                                                            
There is the sound of an ENGINE STARTING as gary starts up
and pulls away.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Man!!!, you white people are so
sensitive.
                                                            
                       GARY
Yeah, right it's you black people
that are always compla...
                                                            

59.

                       LEROY

                       GARY
So why are we leaving?
                                                            
                       LEROY
I,ve got a plan.
                                                            
                       GARY
Why do I have a bad felling about
this?
                                                            
                       LEROY
Trust me.
                                                            
                       GARY
The last time I did that, I ended
up with a concussion.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Yeaaah... I'm sorry about that.
                                                            
                       GARY
I shouldn't have said that...
sorry man, you know I got your
back.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Yeah... I know, you always have.
                                                            
                       GARY
So where to?
                                                            
                       LEROY
The Doulble L.
                                                            
                       GARY
Ok, when we get there, you need to
sound more black. You sound like a
white guy in a black body.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Alright cracker, lets go.
                                                            
The ENGINE ROARS as Gary accelerates, enroute to the Doulble

                       BARTENDER LL
What can I get you?
                                                            
                       LEROY
He'll have a bud, nothing for me

                       BARTENDER LL
You don't drink you don't stay.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Chill out nigga, hit me up with a
colt 45.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER LL
I ain't your nigga. Call me that

floor.
                                                            
                       LEROY
      (grabbing his
       crotch)
Bite this.
                                                            
Bartender shakes his head and walks away.
                                                            
                       LEROY
How's that?
                                                            
                       GARY
Maybe you should just forget about
trying to talk like a black man.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Have a seat at the bar, I'm going
to talk to the stripper.
                                                            
                       GARY
You want me to talk to her?
                                                            
                       LEROY
That's ok, I got it.
                                                            
Leroy walks over to stripper.
                                                            
                       LEROY
How about a private dance?
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL

Stripper leads leroy to private table.

Leroy hands her twenty bucks.
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
Have a seat.
                                                            
Leroy sits down.
                                                            
Stripper proceeds to give Leroy a lap dance.
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
I haven't seen you in here before.
You new in town?
                                                            
                       LEROY
I've been around, you may not
recognize me. I changed my look a
little bit.
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
I like the new look.
                                                            
                       LEROY
I'm not sure if I'm going to keep
it.
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
Why not?
                                                            
                       LEROY
A little to much change.
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
What did you look like before?
                                                            
                       LEROY
You wouldn't believe me if I told
you.
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
Why, you didn't have a sex change
or anything did you?
                                                            
                       LEROY
      (laughing)
No, no sex change. Do you girls
ever do private parties?
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
If the money's right. You got a
party you want us to come to?
                                                            

62.

                       LEROY
No I was wandering if you girls
were going to Coolaid's place.
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
I can't talk about that.
                                                            
Leroy hands her another twenty dollar bill.
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
Ok, but you didn't hear this from
me. We have three girls over there
now.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Does he ask for anybody in
particular?
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
No, we just know what kinda girls
he likes.
                                                            
                       LEROY
What kind is that?
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
He likesem small and petit.
                                                            
                       LEROY
How often do you send them?
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
We send him three girls every
saturday, but we're only sending
two next week.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Why's that?
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
One of the girls that we send is
quiting. She's getting married.
                                                            
                       LEROY
Good for her, she must be excited.
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL

63.

                       STRIPPER LL
Oh yeah, It's always been a dream

                       LEROY
I think I might know somebody.
                                                            
                       STRIPPER LL
Great, bring her by. You want
another dance?
                                                            
                       LEROY

and crinkle their noses, then cover their noses with their
hands and turn their heads away, making comments to one
another.
                                                            
Irene holds up a few mini skirts up to her body.
                                                            
                       IRENE
How about these?

friends, don't you.

                       POLICE OFFICER
Why would he do that?
                                                            
                       GARY
He thinks he's untouchable.
                                                            
                       POLICE OFFICER

                       PAT
Is she really Nick?
                                                            
                       GARY
Yes she is, you should have seen
the first body he had.
                                                            
                       PAT
This is just too weird.
                                                            
                       GARY
It's a little hard to get used to.
                                                            
There is the SOUND OF WATER RUNNING as Irene gets in the

                       GARY
Try not to worry about it. We'll
get the insurance money and
rebuild.
                                                            
                       PAT
It's not so much the house as it
is all of our personal belongings.
                                                            
                       GARY
Try and get some rest honey, you
look really tired.
                                                            
                       PAT
I'm to upset to sleep.
                                                            
Gary goes out to the kitchen and fixes Pat a drink.
                                                            
Pat lies back on couch, talking to herself.
                                                            
                       PAT
Oh my god, my pictures, all of my
pictures of my mother are gone.

Here, drink this, you'll feel
better.
                                                            
Pat takes the drink and takes a sip.

I just realized, all of my
pictures of my mother are gone.

Oh thank god. If we ever have
kids, I want them to know what she
looked like.

Your mother was a really good
woman. I miss her.
                                                            
                       PAT
I just wish we could have caught
it earlier, maybe we could have
saved her.
                                                            
                       GARY
Melanoma's a very aggressive
cancer, by the time you find it,
it's usually too late.
                                                            
Irene walks in, looking like a transvestite, with heavy
eyeshadow, lipstick on crooked and hair all over her face.
                                                            
Gary and Pat break out into laughter.
                                                            
                       PAT
      (laughing)
Ok, now I believe you're Nick.

You look like a transvestite.
                                                            
                       IRENE
Well I'm sorry, but I'm not used
to putting on women's makeup.

I can do.

                       PROSTITUTE # 2
Once.
                                                            
                       IRENE
What did he do?
                                                            
                       PROSTITUTE # 2
He slapped me and grabbed me by
the throat.
                                                            
                       PROSTITUT # 1
He hit me once and knocked me on
my ass.
                                                            
                       IRENE
Why do you keep coming back?
                                                            
                       PROSTITUT # 1
The money's too good to pass up
on.
                                                            
                       PROSTITUTE # 2
If he starts getting angry, just
get the hell out.

Security gates swing open.
                                                            
Driver pulls up in front of the house, gets out of car and
opens the door for the girls and escorts them to the front
door.

BODYGUARD #2 opens the door and lets them in.


84.

He gives them a cursory pat down. As he pats down Irene, his
hand hits the tape recorder she has hidden in her waistband.

Irene looks startled, but to her surprise, he doesn't say
anything.

He completely misses the handgun she has hidden in back and
doesn't look in her handbag.
                                                            
                       BODYGUARD #2
Have a seat and Coolaid will be
out in a minute. Can I get you a
drink?
                                                            
                       PROSTITUT # 1
A glass of champagne would be
nice.
                                                            
                       PROSTITUTE # 2
I'll have the same.
                                                            
                       BODYGUARD #2
      (looking at irene)
What about you?
                                                            
                       IRENE
I'd like an mgd if you have it.
                                                            
                       BODYGUARD #2
Mgd?
                                                            
                       IRENE
Miller Genuine Draft.
                                                            
                       BODYGUARD #2
Oh, ok, I think we have some
Miller. You want a glass?
                                                            
                       IRENE
I don't suppose you have any
frosted mugs?
                                                            
                       BODYGUARD #2
I think I can find you a mug. Sit
tight and I'll be right back.
                                                            
Bodyguard #2 leaves the room.
                                                            
                       PROSTITUTE # 2
      (looking at irene)
Damn girl you think you're at a
bar?
                                                            

85.

                       IRENE
What can I say, I like frosted
mugs.
                                                            
                       PROSTITUT # 1
You could have had champagne and
you chose beer?
                                                            
                       IRENE
I like beer.
                                                            
                       PROSTITUTE # 2
You sure your not a guy. I think
we need to take a look.
                                                            
Girls start to laugh.
                                                            
                       PROSTITUT # 1
Boy you talk about making Coolaid
mad, I think that would probably
do it.
                                                            
Bodyguard #2 comes back in the room with the drinks.
                                                            
                       BODYGUARD #2
Sounds like you girls are having a
good time.
                                                            
                       PROSTITUTE # 2
I see you found a frosted mug.
                                                            
                       BODYGUARD #2
      (laughing)
We actually have a very well
equipped bar. We entertain a lot.
I can get you anything here that
you'll find at any bar and we'll
probably make it better.
