KIM:

Knock knock.

Joe looks up.

Kim Driscoll is in her 40s, CATERING WOMAN - does the

sandwiches and the trolley, tea truck. She is standing with

a young man, Ash Driscoll (19) - he is black despite Kim

being white - and exudes an attitude that says, ‘My mind is

somewhere else - and all this is bullshit’.

KIM (CONT’D)

My son, Ashton -

ASH:

Ash

KIM:

He’s on work experience. I squared

it with Jenna. He’s going to start

on the phones.

JOE:

Oh, yes - I got an email...

(his desk is a bombsite)

-somewhere... I’m Joe - head of

sales -

They shake hands.

And it has literally taken this long, seconds, for some of

the girls, to clock the fresh meat.

ANGLE - ALLY collaring Caz as she passes - nodding towards

the new blood...

JOE (CONT’D)

I’ll show you to your work station.

Get you started on the induction -

it’s all online, no human

interaction necessary -

He smiles.
