Innerspace (1987)
Synopsis: A scientifically miniaturized marine unexpectedly finds himself floating around the body of a hypochondriac, and trying to outwit saboteurs who want the device that shrank him. Attempts by his colleagues to retrieve the little man - protected inside a tiny submersible - are hampered by the would-be thieves.

JOE:

Remember me?

She barely looks up...a 40 watt smile.

JOE:

Joe Doakes? It's quarter to 10...

RECEPTIONIST.

I'm sorry. We're running behind.

So many applicants...so few jobs...

If you'll just have a seat.

JOE:

I have a seat. I've had it since nine.

RECEPTIONIST.

...Mr. Athol will be with you as soon as

possible. Will you be able to wait?

JOE (he turns)

You're just lucky I need this job.

RECEPTIONIST.

Is there anything else?

JOE:

A drink...

RECEPTIONIST.

Water fountain's through that door,

down the hall.

JOE:

Thanks.

THE ROOF:

The landing craft withdraws its torch,

deploys a nozzle-arm. PSSSSCCCHHHT. A colorless gas is emitted.

- A hallucinogen; debilitating but not fatal...not even

unpleasant. t makes people highly suggestible, pliable, complacent.

INT. LAB AND CONTROL ROOM-

Slowly, almost imperceptibly,

the hubbub and chatter die off. People stand and sit

as before, but slowly slow down...Cigarettes slow halfway to the

mouth...Coffee cups stop in mid-sip. In the lab, procedures just...slow.

A man at a control board looks down as if, suddenly, it's

all Greek...the lights and buttons suddenly foreign to him. Others

seem bemused, daydreaming...They smile at each other and

try to think of something to say. Some of them giggle.

EXT. THE VALLEY

A CHOPPER glides through the pass

and settles on the UST landing pad. Five figures exit the chopper,

all dressed alike; dark coveralls and boots, motorcycle

helmets with reflectored visors...A PRECISION ATTACK.
