FADE IN:

INT. APARTMENT OF TERRY AND EVE STEVENS - NIGHT
                                                            
Music is playing in the background. EVE walks in the front
door of her apartment. She lays her groceries on counter in
kitchen. The scene shows her preparing the meal taking a
shower, with water pouring down her back. Her wet, long hair
soaked her back with suds drizzling down her ass. She puts
lipstick on, hair up, perfume spraying on her neck, and
lighting the candles, all within a setting of a song.
                                                            
 
INT. DINING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
TERRY walks in the front door. He takes off his coat and
hangs it up in the closet.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (sneaking behind
       TERRY)
Guess who?
      (putting her hands
       over his eyes)
                                                            
                       TERRY
      (turns around
       overjoyed)
Happy Anniversary baby!
                                                            
Kisses and hugs EVE looking at the candles burning.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (pulls back to see
       his answer)
Do you like it?
                                                            
                       TERRY
      (walk past her to
       the dining table)
Wow, you have outdone yourself
once again!
                                                            
                       EVE
      (ecstatic)
I know! It gets better every
year.
                                                            
She takes a strawberry out of the bowl on dining table and
eats on it.

                       TERRY
Yes it does! Now, let's skip to
dessert.
                                                            
Takes EVE'S Strawberry off the edge of her mouth and eats
it. He lifts her over his shoulder, and walks to the
bedroom.
                                                            
 
INT. BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
                       EVE
      (Screams with
       excitement)
My hair!
                                                            
                       TERRY
      (Throwing EVE down
       on bed)
I'm hungry.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (Putting hands in
       TERRY'S hair)
Me too, Me too.

thigh.
                                                            
 
INT. BEDROOM, MORNING AFTER - DAY
                                                            
EVE wakes up to the sound of kids playing. She turns over
and sees a note and a rose on TERRY'S pillow.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (smiling)
I love this man.
                                                            
Picking the rose up to smell it. She takes the letter and
sits up to read it.
                                                            
                       TERRY
Dear EVE,
Last night was wonderful as
always, but it is over. I'm in
love with another woman. I left
you $5,000.00 on nightstand. I
will take care of the divorce. I
want out, so leave today.
                                                            
As terrible as it sounds, EVE gets up slowly and walks over
to nightstand. She opens up envelope to look at the money,

feeling perturbed and alone. She walks holding her hands
out to the walls as if she was going to fall out. She walks
into the dining area where the dinner and candles were set
up. The candles burnt down to the holder. Wax on table
cloth, and food still on table, she throws a plate against
the wall where a picture of her and TERRY'S wedding photo
hung.
                                                            
                       COLE
      (running into
       dining room)
Mommy?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (leaning over the
       table, out of
       breath)
Go to your room. I was just
cleaning up in here.
      (looks at her son)
                                                            
Wiping her tears, pats COLE on the tail and walks fast to
his bedroom.
                                                            
                       EVE
Let's go pack, we are going to
take a little vacation.
                                                            
                       COLE
      (running and
       yelling)
Yeah!
                                                            
                       MADDIE
      (runs into COLE'S
       room)
Where's daddy?
                                                            
                       COLE
      (jumping on bed)
We're going away on vacation.
                                                            
                       MADDIE
      (pinkie in her
       mouth)
Where's daddy, Mommy?
                                                            
                       EVE
He's gone on business. He will be
gone for a while and we are going
away. Let's get packing sweetie.
                                                            
EVE gets off of bed to pull MADDIE'S hair out of her face.

                       BANK TELLER
Yes mame, may I help you?
                                                            
                       EVE

       withdrawal slip)
I need to get some money out.
                                                            
                       BANK TELLER
      (typing on
       computer)
I'm sorry MRS. STEVENS, the
account has been closed.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (wrathful)
What do you mean? When?
                                                            
                       BANK TELLER

apartment.
                                                            
                       BILL
MRS. STEVENS, I can't let you go
up.

Bill steps in front of the elevator.
                                                            
                       EVE
BILL, I've known you for over ten
years. So please, I'm begging
you. I need to get more things
for the kids. I won't be more than
five minutes, I promise.
                                                            
EVE puts the suitcases they wheeled in by the elevator.
                                                            
                       BILL
      (looking around)
ok, ok, but if you get caught…..
                                                            
                       EVE
      (cutting BILL off)
I won't.
                                                            
                       BILL
      (quickly spoken)

EVE gets into the elevator and steps out on her floor where
she lived. Trying to get in the door, Eve realized TERRY
must've changed the key. She reaches for her phone to make a
call, and noticed it was cut off. She gets back in the
elevator and reaches the first floor and gets out and took
the kids. She rushes out of the front doors.
                                                            
                       BILL
      (concerned)
MRS. STEVENS? That was fast, did
you get what you needed?
                                                            
                       EVE

can work during the week nights.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (shocked)
No, I've never stripped before.
                                                            
                       LONDON
      (puts her arm
       around EVE'S
       shoulder)
Not that, a waitress.

INT. STRIP CLUB - NIGHT
                                                            
                                         A FEW MONTHS GONE BY
                                                            
Few months have gone by and EVE and LONDON are doing well.
The strip club inside is scattered with customers. Dancers
on stage, a few table dancers and the bouncer kicking
someone out the club. EVE was picking up empty beer
bottles. Eve walks past a customer who had been eyeing her
for a while.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (touches EVE'S let
       leg)
Excuse me.

       on her thigh)
Yes, what can I get you, sir?
                                                            
                       ELLIOT

       down)
You!
                                                            

11.

                       EVE
      (chuckles under
       breath)
I can't help you with that. I can
get someone else who can.
                                                            
EVE waves her right hand towards LONDON, snapping her
fingers.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (glances at LONDON)
I'm serious.
                                                            
                       LONDON
Hi, I see you met our most high
paying customer, DR. PARKER.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
Hi, LONDON. I told you when I'm
outside of the hospital, you can
call me ELLIOT.
                                                            
                       LONDON
      (speaking to EVE)
I work with ELLIOT at the
hospital.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (sincerely)
ELLIOT, I can get you someone
else.
                                                            
                       LONDON
      (To EVE)
What exactly was you calling me
over here for?
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
I told this nice, beautiful woman
that I wanted her. Just for an
hour in the private room.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (whispering to
       London)
I told him that I can't do that,
I'm only a waitress.
                                                            
                       LONDON
      (moves EVE over
       towards her)
You can, but it's up to you. There
are rules and POGO will be out the

                       LONDON (cont'd)
door if you need him.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (feeling unsure)
Rules?
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (with lust in his
       eyes)
Don't worry, I just want a few
drinks with you and talk for a
little while. I don't bite
                                                            
                       LONDON
      (letting EVE know
       its safe)
I will go get POGO and sit it up.
Come on, this way .
                                                            
 
INT. PRIVATE ROOM IN STRIP CLUB - NIGHT
                                                            
Easing into a dark room with red lights, POGO shuts the
door. Holding a bottle of wine, ELLIOT turns some music on
while EVE stands in one place, watching him pour two glasses
of wine.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
I hope you like wine.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (looks around the
       room)
I don't really drink.
                                                            
Eve walks toward a painting she can barely see in the dark
room.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
A little bit of wine never hurt
anyone.
                                                            
He pours a tube on liquid into her wine.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (turning around)
No, I guess not.
                                                            
ELLIOT sits on the couch tapping the seat for EVE to sit
down.
                                                            

13.

                       EVE
Why do you pick me?
                                                            
She sits down, drinks her wine.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (finishes off his
       glass)
I been watching you and there's
something about you I like.
                                                            
                       EVE
hhmmm! I see.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
I want you to drink at least one
more glass to calm your nerves.
You look a little uncomfortable.
                                                            
He stands up to pour another drink for both of them.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (nods yes, looking
       up at ELLIOT)
I'm going through a divorce and I
haven't been close to anyone else
since him.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (hands Eve her
       glass)
Would you like to dance?
                                                            
                       EVE
I can't dance. I would step right
on your toes.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (helps EVE off
       couch)
Whoa, slow down. You might become
dizzy.
                                                            
He puts her arm around his neck. They dance to the light
music in the background. He begins to smell her hair and the
taste of her skin. With her head on his left shoulder, he
kisses her ear. His warm breath against her ear makes her
tremble. She grabs the back of his neck tightly. Her knees
start to shake and she can't stand up straight. He holds her
up and helps her to the couch.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
Easy now.
                                                            

14.

                       EVE
      (lightheaded)
I just needed to sit down. I'm not
used to drinking and I think I did
it too fast.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (whispers in her
       ear)
Yeah, you did. I can make you feel
better.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (unfocused)
The room is spinning.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
You don't have to go.
                                                            
He puts EVE on top of him and pulls her down close to his
pelvis.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (fighting the urge)
I need to, I have to.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (kisses her)
I want you so bad.
                                                            
EVE grips her thighs tight around his pelvis. Moaning while
sensations rushed through her body making her want to
scream. Leaning her head back, her hair flows down her back
as her legs shaking uncontrollably. His left hand holding
her back while his right hand slides down her chest to her
stomach. He slides his hand underneath her skirt as she
climaxes. She raises up to kiss him, he lays his head back
and opens his eyes. Biting on his lips, she opens her eyes.
What she sees is shocking. She sees a woman being dragged to
the balcony and thrown off. She pulls back from him, but he
keeps holding tight. She tries to get off and couldn't.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
What are you doing?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (yelling for POGO)
POGO!
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (agitated)
I paid for an hour.
                                                            

15.

Letting her go, she falls half on the floor. She tries to
crawl to the door yelling for POGO.

Hard to hear from the outside music, POGO hears EVE'S cry
for help. Opening the door, POGO helps EVE off the floor.
                                                            
                       POGO
      (apologetic)
I'm sorry, EVE. I didn't hear you
for all the noise.
      (looking at ELLIOT
       walking out the
       door)
Did you break the rules again?
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (sarcastically
       grins)
She wouldn't let me. Besides, she
can't handle her alcohol.
                                                            
                       POGO
Come on EVE, let's get you in the
back room and let you sleep it
off.
                                                            
 
INT. BACK ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Tossing and Turning, EVE meditates of what she saw in DR.
PARKER'S eyes. A woman being dragged to a balcony being
thrown off showing the face of DR. PARKER. Confused, she
gets up slowly and leaves the Club and drives to the police
station.
                                                            
 
INT. POLICE STATION - NIGHT
                                                            
                       EVE
      (focusing on the
       Officer)
Excuse me.
                                                            
                       OFFICER #1
What Can I do for you?
                                                            
                       EVE
I need to speak to someone about a
crime
                                                            
                       OFFICER #1
      (eats a doughnut)
You seen a crime or did a crime?
                                                            

16.

                       EVE
      (disoriented)
Yes…No….I…I don't know..Is there a
detective or someone I could speak
with?
                                                            
                       OFFICER #1
I will be right back.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (crossing her arms)
Ok.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (opens the door)
Mame, Do you want to come into my
office?
                                                            
EVE walks through the door quietly.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (points to a chair)
My name is DET. TIBBS, You can
have a seat.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (sits down)
Thank you. I'm EVE STEVENS.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (judging by the
       way she dressed)
I hear you may know something
about a crime?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (reluctant to
       speak)
Sort of. I seen a crime, a murder.
A woman being thrown off of a
balcony.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
Sort of? Either you did or you
didn't?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (looking off)
Well, I had a vision of it
happening.
                                                            

17.

                       DET. TIBBS
      (sitting back in
       chair with his
       hands on his lap)
A vision?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (embarrassed)
I never had any visions before
that and I really feel strong
about this.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (rudely)
So you're a psychic now?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (yells)
You have to believe me.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (opens his door)
Are you on some type of
medication? I mean, you walk in
here dressed like you are.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (interupting)
Never mind. You think I'm a junkie
and needing some attention?
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
What I'm saying is that you come
in here and expect me to believe
you about a vision. Do you know
how many psychics we have calling
us daily?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (runs out the door)
If she dies it's on your hands.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (shaking his head)
Damn psychics.
                                                            
 
INT. APARTMENT OF EVE AND LONDON - NIGHT
                                                            
The BABYSITTER leaves out the door telling EVE goodnight.
                                                            
                       EVE
Thank you, see you tomorrow.
                                                            

18.

                       BABYSITTER
Goodnight EVE.
                                                            
EVE shuts the door and locks it. She walks into the bedroom
and climbs into the bed with her kids. She puts her arm
around her kids. She was thinking about the woman in her
vision. She kept seeing the woman falling off of a balcony.
She can't get the image out of her head. The woman's face,
her holding on to the edge of balcony before she fell to her
death.
                                                            
 
INT. STRIP CLUB NEXT NIGHT - NIGHT
                                                            
Serving Customers their drinks, EVE continues to look around
for ELLIOT. Hoping he wouldn't show. Standing at the bar,
LONDON awaits for her turn on stage to dance.
                                                            
                       EVE
You see him yet?
                                                            
                       LONDON
No, If he shows, he will avoid you
as much as possible.
                                                            
                       EVE
I don't care about that, just as
long as I can follow him home so I
can know where he lives
                                                            
                       LONDON
Spicy! I like you like this. You
are losing your shyness, it must
be me.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (rolls her eyes)
It's called being tough.
                                                            
                       LONDON
Ok girl, whatever you say. I'm up
next. Look, If I see him, I will
show you with my eyes.
      (smiles back at
       EVE)
                                                            
She walks up to stage.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (laughs)
Ha, ok, We got jokes, ok.
                                                            

19.

EVE watches LONDON dancing on stage. LONDON spots ELLIOT in
the front row. She points with her eyes toward him at EVE.
EVE walks closer to the stage to see where she was talking
about. EVE sees him with his arm around another woman. To
get closer to recognize her she got right up behind him. The
woman had long blonde hair, very nice legs, and a tattoo of
a woman's face on her right thigh. Walking away backwards
making sure he doesn't see her, she leaves out to her car
and waits for them to leave.
                                                            
 
EXT. OUTSIDE OF STRIP CLUB PARKING LOT - NIGHT
                                                            
If it takes hours, EVE was going to follow ELLIOT home. Not
long after she gets into her car, she hears a woman
laughing. Picking her head up, drinking her coffee to stay
awake, she waits to they get in the car and drive off. She
follows them at a distant, and slows down while the car
pulls into ELLIOT'S driveway. He gets out and goes in his
home. The woman in the car didn't get out, she just kept
driving. EVE desperately wants to know who the woman was and
did ELLIOT live by himself?
                                                            
 
EXT. NEXT MORNING, DR. PARKER'S HOME - DAY
                                                            
The next morning, EVE drives through the neighborhood where
ELLIOT lives. She pulls up to the end of the driveway. She
noticed cops were startng to leave out of driveway. She
didn't notice an ambulance or anyone being arrested.
Disturbed that this could be the day her vision came true.
Emotionally empowered, she got out of her car and walked up
the driveway and seen a woman talking to an officer.
                                                            
                       OFFICER #2
      (shaking JILL'S
       hand)
I will get back with you on this
as soon as I can.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (concerned)
Thank you, officer.
                                                            
                       OFFICER #2
You are welcome MRS. PARKER.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (shocked by the
       last name)
MRS. PARKER?
                                                            

20.

                       JILL
      (smiling gently)
Hello, are you from the insurance
Agency? I didn't expect to see you
until the reports are filed.
                                                            
                       EVE
No, I-I um, I live down the road
and heard the sirens.
                                                            
                       JILL
You wanted to check things out?
                                                            
                       EVE
yeah, something like that.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (reaching to shake
       Eve's hand)
Well, I am MRS. PARKER. You can
call me JILL.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (looking for
       ELLIOT)
My name is EVE STEVENS. You can
call me EVE.
                                                            
They both laugh about the introduction. EVE looks around and
notices the balcony on the far right of the second floor.
She tilted her head to the right just enough to see the
ladder off from the balcony.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (tilts her head
       along with Eve)
EVE, Do you see something?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (snaps back)
no, um, yes, yes I do. I was
admiring your balcony. Is DR.
PARKER around?
                                                            
                       JILL
      (feeling a little
       exhausted)
He's at the hospital. He just left
for work. He let me handle all of
this.
                                                            

21.

                       EVE
Do you mind if I ask, what
happened?
                                                            
                       JILL
      (scratching her
       head)
We were broken into this morning.
We were at breakfast and someone
came through the balcony from the
ladder
                                                            
                       EVE
Really? Through the balcony huh?
Did they take anything?
                                                            
JILL wondering why Eve is so persistent on knowing what went
on. She gives EVE a cautious look.
                                                            
                       EVE
Oh, I am sorry! It's just that
everyone knows everyone and I want
to make sure of my surroundings. I
have kids and ……
                                                            
                       JILL
      (cuts her off)
It's ok. I understand. We just
moved in and our alarm system
didn't go off. Our doors were
opened to the balcony of our room,
so no one was notified. We didn't
know until we heard the ladder go
down.
                                                            
                       EVE
Did they take anything?
                                                            
                       JILL
My gun that I had under my
mattress, which my husband bought
me when we moved in. By the way,
how did you know my husband was a
Doctor?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (laughs nervously)
Word gets around in this
neighborhood.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (changing the
       subject)
I know this is a little odd, just
            (MORE)

22.

                       EVE (cont'd)
meeting and all; Would you like to
go to lunch?
                                                            
                       JILL
Actually, It's not odd at all. Let
me get my purse.
                                                            
 
INT. NEARBY CAFE - DAY
                                                            
                                         WEEKS PASS BY
                                                            
As weeks pass by JILL and EVE hangs out with one another
laughing and carrying on. ELLIOT never knew JILL hung out
with JILL nor did he ever ask. EVE decides after a while of
getting closer, to tell JILL about her vision. This wasn't
going to be easy. God knows what the results would bring.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (holding to her
       glass)
Jill, I need to tell you
something.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (content)
What is it?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (eases into story)
I had a vision that your husband
is going to kill you.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (mouth drops
       laughing)
Yeah right!
                                                            
                       EVE
I know this is abstruse, but I'm
telling you the truth.
                                                            
                       JILL
I think you've had one too many
drinks.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (in a low but
       sturdy voice)
I don't even drink. I've had only
water.
                                                            

23.

                       JILL
      (dissbelief)
Calm down. It was only a vision,
I'm here aren't I?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (walks out the bar
       furious)
Not for long…
                                                            
                       JILL
Wait, Eve.
                                                            
 
EXT. CAFE PARKING LOT - DAY
                                                            
Running behind EVE, she cries out to JILL. Not understanding
what was going on, she stops EVE from getting in her car.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (very worried)
Why are you acting this way?
                                                            
                       EVE
Get into the car and let's go for
a ride
                                                            
They get into the car and EVE explains the situation.
                                                            
                       EVE
A month ago, I saw your husband at
the Strip Club I work at. He paid
for a private room with the two of
us.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (turns her head to
       the window to
       look out)
I don't think I want to hear
anymore.
                                                            
                       EVE
We didn't have sex.
                                                            
                       JILL
Why are you telling me all of
this?
                                                            
                       EVE
You need to know.
                                                            

24.

She pulls over the side of the road. They both get out of
the vehicle.
                                                            
                       JILL
Is this some sort of game to be
close to me so you can get to my
husband? Or maybe you are the one
who took my gun.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (feeling
       downgraded and
       out of time)
No, No, No, sweetie. I didn't and
I don't. I believe he slipped
something into my drink. I felt
out of control and scared. I
didn't know how to react when he
touched me. I tried to get up and
it was hard for me to. I felt like
he wanted me awake but delusional.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (disgusted of the
       thought)
Did you say he slipped you
something?
                                                            
                       EVE
Yeah, he had to. He kept pushing a
drink on me. He knows I'm only a
waitress and single and more
vulnerable because I have kids
too. It got so heavy that when I
looked in his eyes to kiss him, I
saw a woman, you, being thrown off
your balcony.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (tears up)
You kissed him?
                                                            
                       EVE
I didn't know you. I told you that
was all. There was no sex. A few
nights later, I followed him home.
He was with another woman. I just
wanted to check things out.
                                                            

25.

                       JILL
      (EVE has her
       attention now)
Another woman? What did she look
like?
                                                            
                       EVE
You sure u want to know?
                                                            
                       JILL
Yes
                                                            
                       EVE
Long, blonde hair, looks like you,
and she had a tat on her right
thigh.
                                                            
                       JILL
Of what?
                                                            
                       EVE
A face. More like a self portrait.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (looks down)
I know her.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (Not knowing if
       this was good or
       bad news)
You do?
                                                            
                       JILL
Yeah, she used to call the house
all the time. I've even seen her
in his office at the hospital one
day I went to see him.. I couldn't
see her tattoo but all the nurses
talked about it. He said he fired
her.
                                                            
                       EVE
When did this happen?
                                                            
                       JILL
      (Crying)
About three months ago. He said it
was best if we moved across town
away from where she couldn't get
near us. I highly doubt he fired
her. That son of a bitch.
                                                            

26.

                       EVE
We can't let him get away with
this.
                                                            
 
EXT. EVE FOLLOWS ELLIOT FROM HOSPITAL TO INS. AGENCY - DAY
                                                            
The next day EVE drove to the hospital waiting for ELLIOT to
get off of work. When he got in his car, she followed him.
He pulled in to an Insurance place. EVE, wearing a wig and
sunglasses, walked in the door. Looking around, she spotted
that woman from the club. Immediately she called JILL.
                                                            
                       EVE
Meet me at the cafe in ten
minutes.
                                                            
 
INT. CAFE - DAY
                                                            
Sitting at a booth, JILL walks in and sits down with EVE.
                                                            
                       JILL
What did you see?
                                                            
                       EVE
ELLIOT went into an Insurance
Agency. Do you want to know who
was waiting for him?
                                                            
                       JILL
      (surprised)
No, Are you serious? What is going
on here? What are they doing? What
do they want?
                                                            
                       EVE
It's going to be alright. We will
get through this.
                                                            
EVE takes JILL'S hand.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (upset)
We've got to find out what he's
doing.
                                                            
                       EVE
Honey, He was putting life
insurance out on you.
                                                            
                       JILL
We both have that. So?
                                                            

27.

                       EVE
What if he doubled it?
                                                            
                       JILL
      (converging)
He gets me out of his life and
they both win. He doubled it, and
knows how clumsy I am especially
when I drink. They rule it as an
accident. How come I didn't put
this together myself?
                                                            
                       EVE
Because sometimes we don't see
things that hurt us when we love
them so much.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (putting her head
       down)
He always been money hungry. I
never thought he would go this
far.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (tapping her
       fingers on table)
This is what we are going to do.
I'm going to get a recorder and
you try to get him to confess.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (sits back in
       disbelief)
Just like that? That easy huh?
                                                            
                       EVE
No. You slip something in his
drink.
                                                            
                       JILL
How do you suppose I do that?
                                                            
                       EVE
My friend works at the hospital
also and she will get the drug for
me.
                                                            
                       JILL
I don't know if I'm ready for
this.
                                                            

28.

                       EVE
Well, get ready. My phone is
dead. Let me use yours.
                                                            
JILL gives EVE her phone. She calls TERRY for help.
                                                            
                       JILL
Who are you calling?
                                                            
                       EVE
TERRY.
                                                            
                       JILL
Why are you calling him?
                                                            
                       EVE
Cause if something happens to me,
he has to know.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (frantic)
Unbelievable!!
                                                            
PHONE CALL BETWEEN EVE AND TERRY
                                                            
                       TERRY
Hello.
                                                            
                       EVE
Hey, TERRY, its EVE.
                                                            
                       TERRY
This better be about the kids.
                                                            
                       EVE
I had a situation with a friend. I
need…..
                                                            
TERRY hangs up.
                                                            
                       EVE
Thank you.
                                                            
She hands phone back to JILL.
                                                            
                       JILL
He hung up didn't he?
                                                            
                       EVE
He hasn't even filed for divorce.
What Am I supposed to do, just sit
here and wait?
                                                            

29.

                       JILL
Don't let this spoil anything for
us. Like you said, everything is
going to be alright.
                                                            
                       EVE
You're right. ELLIOT is going to
give his confession and go to
jail. TERRY will pay for what he
did to me also. I'm sure of it.
                                                            
 
EXT. ELLIOT AND JILL'S HOME - NIGHT
                                                            
EVE hides behind a bush, under the kitchen window. Dressed
all in black. She keeps raising up to the window peeking in
on JILL and ELLIOT.
                                                            
                                         IN KITCHEN
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (cooking)
Dinner is ready.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (walks into the
       kitchen)
It smells so good in here.
                                                            
JILL puts her arm around his waist.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (turns around)
And you smell even better.
      (kissing her lips)
Yum!
                                                            
                       JILL
      (smiles at Eve)
Yeah?
      (gives him a
       bigger hug)
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
Pour the wine, would you?
                                                            
Takes her arms and pulls them down and gives her another
kiss. He picks her plate up and takes it and puts it on the
table.
                                                            
                       JILL
How was work today?
                                                            

30.

                       ELLIOT
Same thing every day, People get
sick, People die.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (rasing to pour
       the tube in
       ELLIOT'S glass)
That's terrible. I don't know how
you do it from day to day. I mean,
you're a great doctor. You would
never let anyone die under you,
right?
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (starring at JILL
       through the
       mirror hanging
       above counter)
What did you do today?
                                                            
                       JILL
Oh, I bought some new wine. It's
something we never had before, but
I think you might like it.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (smiling)
Maybe.
                                                            
Bringing his plate to the table, JILL looks up at the window
and sees EVE again. ELLIOT looks back at the kitchen window
as EVE drops down. He almost seen her.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
You're not eating.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (plays with her
       fork)
I had a big lunch today. You
haven't touched your wine.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (Phone rings)
I'm not good at changes. I need to
get this.
                                                            
EVE sneaks to the side of the porch to listen at ELLIOT'S
phone call.
                                                            

31.

PHONE CALL BETWEEN ELLIOT AND KELLY
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
Yeah!
                                                            
                       KELLY
Hey, we have a situation
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (Angry)
Yeah, I do too. She put something
in my drink but I didn't drink
anything. I need you to get here
ASAP. You know where to go.
                                                            
ELLIOT SLAMS HIS PHONE SHUT.
                                                            
                                         INSIDE HOUSE
                                                            
Elliot walks back into the house and tries to avoid Jill.
                                                            
                       JILL
Baby, is everything ok?
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (running his hand
       through his hair)
I have to go to the hospital.
Something came up and they need
me.
                                                            
                       JILL
Ok well I will finish up in here.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (disturbed)
Thanks honey. I'm going to go get
a shower and change.
                                                            
ELLIOT takes off up stairs.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (looks at his
       glass)
He knows!
                                                            
 
INT. TERRY'S APARTMENT - NIGHT
                                                            
KELLY got through with her phone call with ELLIOT. Leaving
out the bathroom door, she walks into the bedroom. Laying in
the bed face down, TERRY'S right arm hanging down off the
bed, with his hand touching the floor. Blood was dripping

32.

down his face from his head. She takes her purse and her
keys and leaves the room.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (looking back at
       TERRY)
Nice knowing you.
                                                            
KELLY leaves out the apartment wiping the door knob with a
tissue. BILL, doing a night run, saw her wipe and leave.
BILL thought it was suspicious, so he checked out TERRY'S
apartment. He saw TERRY laying face down. BILL checks his
pulse and called 911.
                                                            
 
INT. JILL AND ELLIOT'S HOME - NIGHT
                                                            
EVE walks up to the porch and JILL opens the door.
                                                            
                       EVE
Where is he?
                                                            
                       JILL
Upstairs getting a shower. He said
the hospital called. I think he
knows I slipped something in his
drink, because he didn't drink
anything.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (thinking)
He was on the phone with that
woman. She's on her way over here.
                                                            
Moves back and forth with her hands on hips.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (scared)
Oh my God! We're going to die.
      (stops)
What is that noise?
                                                            
                       EVE
I don't see anyone, stay here, I
will go check.
                                                            
Runs to the window by front door.
                                                            
                       JILL
Be careful, It could be him.
                                                            

33.

                       EVE
      (looking at the
       balcony)
Or her.
                                                            
                       JILL
What is she doing here?
                                                            
                       EVE
      (pushing past JILL)
Messing with our plans.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (gazing at EVE)
We were suppose to drug him, and
get him to confess and cops come
and arrest him and we live happily
ever after
                                                            
Watching EVE opening drawers looking for something.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (grabbing a knife
       out of drawer)
We are still going to get a
confession, don't worry.
                                                            
EVE calls 911 and sets the phone in the middle of the table.
As the dispatcher answers the phone, no one replied back.
JILL and EVE creeps up stairs to the hallway near the
bedroom.
                                                            
                                         THE BEDROOM UPSTAIRS
                                                            
KELLY alerts ELLIOT to the balcony. A few setbacks have
gotten these guys a little on edge.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Everything went wrong!
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
Well, You didn't get the money, I
assume?
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (gripping a hold
       of his arms)
No, He found out I was trying to
hack into his account. He
confronted me about it, ELLIOT.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
What did you say?
                                                            

34.

                       KELLY
He threatened to call the cops. I
hit him over the head with his
lamp.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (Hugs her)
Ok, stop panicking. I told you if
your plan didn't work, mine would.
Now, tell me, did anyone see you?
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (leans her head
       back)
No, of course not.
                                                            
                                         OUTSIDE BEDROOM DOOR
                                                            
JILL runs into an outside table.
                                                            
                                         INSIDE BEDROOM
                                                            
                       KELLY
Where is your wife?
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (hushes KELLY)
Outside the door. Get into the
closet.
                                                            
KELLY sneaks to the closet while ELLIOT opens the bedroom
door.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (flushed)
Oh; I heard some talking up here.
                                                            
                                         ENTERING THE BEDROOM
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (greatly perturbed)
It was me, I was on the phone
again.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (scoping the room)
I see.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
Why are you rubbing on your hip?
                                                            

35.

                       JILL
      (pointing behind
       her)
I ran into the table.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (very sarcastic)
Yeah, well we both know how clumsy
you get.
                                                            
                       JILL
      (didn't see any
       scrubs)
I thought you were going to the
hospital?
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (evil look)
plans changed.
                                                            
Elliot walks closer to JILL.
                                                            
                       JILL
So, you're not going, I
thought....
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
No.
                                                            
He touches her lips with his finger hushing her.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (leaning to her
       left ear)
You are!
                                                            
                       JILL
      (pulls back)
It's true!
                                                            
Her eyes wide opened.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (drops his head to
       look down at her)
Is what true?
                                                            
                       JILL
      (short breaths)
You doubled my life insurance?
                                                            

36.

                       ELLIOT
      (grins in laughter)
Actually, I tripled it.
                                                            
ELLIOT saw KELLY sneaking out of the closet. KELLY grabs a
vase off the nightstand. ELLIOT slides down to the bed.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (taking her hands)
It wasn't supposed to be like
this.
      (looks up very
       sympathetic))
                                                            
                       JILL
      (trying not to cry)
But it is.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
I didn't think you were smart
enough to figure anything out. It
was a matter of no time that you
would get tipsy from your wine
after I drugged you and you walk
out to the balcony and fall off.
No one to expect me of anything. A
very simple death, so easily done.
                                                            
As KELLY eases up closer to JILL, EVE does the same thing to
KELLY.
                                                            
                       JILL
I don't understand how you
could…..
                                                            
KELLY raises the vase up to hit JILL. EVE stabs KELLY in the
back with a knife from kitchen. KELLY fell to the floor.
ELLIOT throws JILL to the left of him on the floor. EVE,
holding the bloody knife, goes toward ELLIOT. He fights her
trying to get her to drop the knife.
                                                            
                       ELLIOT
      (screams)
You bitch!
                                                            
Twisting Eve's hand, pulling the knife out. Eve falls to her
knees, pleading with Elliot.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (as loud as she
       could)
No!
                                                            

37.

A shot was fired, as ELLIOT fell on top of EVE. Screaming
and gasping for air, she slides out from under him. On all
hands and knees EVE crawls to JILL and takes the gun from
her.
                                                            
                       JILL
Is he dead?
                                                            
                       EVE
I think so. I thought your gun was
stolen?
                                                            
                       JILL
I bought another one.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (half grins)
Ah!
                                                            
Sirens outside the house, the place were covered with cops,
holding each other, officers calling their names.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (yelling from
       bottom of stairs)
MRS. STEVENS? MRS. PARKER?
                                                            
                       JILL
      (looking at JILL)
Up here!
                                                            
                       EVE
Do you still have the recorder?
                                                            
                       JILL
      (takes it out of
       her bra)
Yes
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (pokes head in
       room)
Are ya alright?
      (sees the two
       bodies on the
       floor)
We got your call, but no one was
on the phone
      (kneeling down to
       check Elliot's
       pulse)
He's dead!
                                                            

38.

                       OFFICER #2
      (checking KELLY'S
       pulse)
So is she. I will call for an
ambulance.
                                                            
EVE and JILL stood up and gave the recorder to DET. TIBBS.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
What is this?
                                                            
                       EVE
Since you didn't believe me….
                                                            
Turns directly to him as she leaves out the door.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (smiling)
Damn psychics.
                                                            
 
EXT. BACK OF AMBULANCE OF ELLIOT AND JILL'S HOME - NIGHT
                                                            
Outside in front driveway, EVE and JILL sits on back of an
ambulance. Paramedics roll ELLIOT and KELLY'S bodies out
into another ambulance.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (holding a notepad)
I got your statements and the
tape.
      (questionable)
MRS. STEVENS?
                                                            
                       EVE
Call me EVE.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
EVE, Earlier when you called, the
dispatcher traced your call to
your name. The name didn't connect
with the address here. They
forwarded it to me. I converged
the night you came into my office
and tonight. I ran your name and
pulled up your home address. 112
Palms Blvd. Apt # 601
                                                            
                       EVE
That was my address. I'm going
through a divorce right now.
                                                            

39.

                       DET. TIBBS
MR. TERRY STEVENS was your
husband?
                                                            
                       EVE
Well, not yet but yes. Why?
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
He's got a lot to do with this.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
We had got a call right before
yours. A security officer, BILL,
found MR. STEVENS in his apartment
face down dead in his bed. He saw
MS. KELLY MITCHELL come out and
suspected foul play.
                                                            
                       EVE
      (Enraged)
She had both of our husbands? I
didn't see that one coming.
                                                            
                       JILL
What's the envelope in your hand?
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
MRS. PARKER you and your husband
has life insurance?
                                                            
                       JILL
Yes, I know. That is not a secret
anymore.
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
When your husband tripled your
policy, he did his also. He
couldn't just triple yours and not
his, it would look suspicious.
                                                            
                       JILL
So, he paid for his own death?
                                                            
                       DET. TIBBS
      (walk away)
Looks that way. Good luck with
everything ladies.
                                                            
                       EVE (Jill)
      (smiles at each
       other)
Thank you Detective.
                                                            

40.

                       DET. TIBBS
      (turns back around
       while still
       walking)
EVE, I am sorry about before. I'm
a jerk, It's who I am.
                                                            
                       EVE
