What line of work are you in? When

you're not stealin' cars?

CLYDE:

(mysteriously)

I tell you, I'm lookin' for suitable

employment right at the moment.

BONNIE:

What did you do before?

CLYDE:

(coolly, knowing its effect)

I was in State Prison.

BONNIE:

State Prison?

(she shows her surprise)

CLYDE:

Yeah.

BONNIE:

(herself again)

Guess some little old lady wasn't

so nice.

CLYDE:

(tough)

It was armed robbery.

BONNIE:

(sarcastically)

My, my, the things that turn up in

the driveway these days.

They reach the corner and turn. They are on:

EXT. MAIN STREET. DAY.

--a small-town street of barber shops, cafes, groceries, etc.

At the moment, it is deserted. They continue walking down

the empty street. CLYDE looks the place over. Tracking.

CLYDE:

What do y'all do for a good time

around here, listen to the grass

grow?

BONNIE:

Guess you had a lot more fun up at

State Prison, huh?

CLYDE laughs, enjoying her repartee. They continue walking.

At a hydrant, CLYDE stops.

CLYDE:

(showing off, but seriously)

See this foot?

(pointing at his

right foot)

I chopped two toes off of it. With

an axe.

BONNIE:

(shocked)

What? Why?

CLYDE:

To get off the damn work detail,

that's why.

(stopping)

Want to see?

BONNIE:

(a lady of some sensitivity)

No!...

(turning a cute)

I surely don't intend to stand here

and look at your dirty feet in the

middle of Main Street.

They continue walking in silence past a few stores, each

planning what next to say.

BONNIE:

Boy, did you really do that?

CLYDE:

Yeah.

BONNIE:

You must be crazy.

DISSOLVE TO:

EXT. GAS STATION. DAY.
