MICHAEL:

No, he didn't want to.

PENELOPE:

I mean it was incredible to see this

child with no face left, no teeth.

And he just wouldn't talk.

NANCY:

I can just imagine.

MICHAEL:

He didn't want to tell on the kid.

Like his friends would say he was a

snitch. I mean let's be honest,

Penelope, it wasn't only a sense of

honor.

PENELOPE:

You could say that. But a sense of

honor requires a social context.

NANCY:

Naturally. So how did you..? I mean,

how did you finally get Zachary's

name?

PENELOPE:

Well because we explained to Ethan

that protecting this child was not

going to help him.

MICHAEL:

We told him, if this kid thinks he

can go on hitting people and getting

away with it, why should he stop?

PENELOPE:

We told him that if we were that

child's parents, we would absolutely

want to know about this.

NANCY:

Of course.

ALAN:

Yeah.

6.

ALAN’s cell phone vibrates. He quickly pulls it out of his

jacket pocket.

ALAN (CONT'D)

Excuse me one second.

ALAN walks away from the others. While he speaks, he takes a

newspaper out of the pocket of his overcoat.

ALAN (CONT'D)

Yes Walter, thanks for getting

back to me. So it's in this

morning's Journal. I'll read it to

you. "According to a study

published by British journal

Lancet, two Australian researchers

have identified neurological side

effects of TW Pharma's anti-

hypertension medication Antril,

including impaired hearing and

muscle coordination, and ataxia."

WALTER (O.S. - TEL)

Fucking hell. How come nobody told

me about this?

ALAN:

Who the hell does your press

monitoring over there?

WALTER (O.S. - TEL)

This is going to be trouble.

ALAN:

Yeah, you’re in deep shit.

WALTER (O.S. - TEL)
