SAM:

Henry?

HENRY:

Where's Dr. Levy?

SAM:

Dr. Levy had an appendectomy,

she'll be gone a few weeks. I'm Dr.

Foster, I'm covering for her.

Sam offers his hand and Henry examines it for a moment before

shaking. Sam goes behind the desk to sit and gestures for

Henry to sit inn one of the facing chairs.

Sam pulls a manila folder from his suitcase. Henry sits on

the edge of a facing chair. He looks ready to bolt at any

second.

4.

Henry holds a piece of string which he coils tightly around

his index finger, then uncoils, then coils again.

HENRY:

So you're the substitute shrink?

Sam smiles.

SAM:

I guess you could call me that.

Does it make you uncomfortable that

I'm filling in for Dr. Levy?

Henry thinks about it, coiling the string tightly.

HENRY:

Is she your girlfriend?

SAM:

No. We were classmates, actually.

So listen, I read your file-

HENRY:

Oh, really? May I read your file?

SAM:

Fair enough. How about you ask me a

question for every question I ask

you?

HENRY:

How about we don't play stupid

games.

Sam smiles and leans back in his chair. Far from being

deterred by Henry's attitude, he's intrigued. He likes

challenges.

SAM:

Okay. Tell me why you're here.

HENRY:

You read the file. You ought to

know.

SAM:

You torched your car. Why?

HENRY:

I don't know.

SAM:

What do you mean, you don't know?

.

5.

HENRY:

I don't remember.

SAM:

Were you drinking?

HENRY:

I opened my eyes and I was sitting

in the car and it was on fire.

Henry is quiet for a moment, remembering.

SAM:

Do you often set fires?
