spots NICK DUNNE—he spots her.

AMY (V.0.)

A great, gorgeous, sweet, cool-ass

guy.

Nick weaves his way over. She’s setting down her beer.

NICK:

It’s dangerous to set down a monk— *

brewed Belgian wheat beer when the *

party is down to three Beast Lites

and a bottle of Pucker.

AMY:

Might attract some desperate

characters.

He gestures toward a group of Williamsburg musician-types:

suspenders and broad-brimmed hats.

NICK:

Things could get ugly. The Amish

are on Ruinspringa.

AMY:

They already relieved me of my

artisanal meat platter.

NICK:

AMY:

NICK:

He picks up the beer.

Whose beer am I drinking? *

they have same POV) *

What’s your type? *

They scan the crowd together. Cozy. Nick points to a hornrimmed,

haughty DOUCHEBAG. *

NICK (CONT’D) *

I can’t picture you sitting still *

while he bloviates about his post- *

Nick points to a sideburned guy in a NOVELTY TEE. *

NICK (CONT’D) *

Ironic hipster so self—aware he *

AMY *

I prefer men who are funny, not *

Nick points to a wavy-haired granola-yoga type. *

NICK:

Please tell me it’s not Deeply

NICK:

Code for ‘~I hate strong women.”
