The Bionic Woman  Episode #Pilot (2006)
Synopsis: The Bionic Woman is an American television series starring Lindsay Wagner that aired for three seasons between 1976 and 1978 as a spin-off from The Six Million Dollar Man. Wagner stars as tennis pro Jaime Sommers who is nearly killed in a skydiving accident.

INT. KITCHENETTE -- DAY

The cramped kitchenette. Jaime's at the sink, dishes are

everywhere, but BECCA'S BREAKFAST is laid neatly on the tiny

table:
eggs, bacon, fruit, toast, milk, like an ad for the

perfect BALANCED BREAKFAST.

Becca ignores it, grabs a POPTART and BLACK COFFEE.

Jaime is tossing the cooking pan in the sink as she hastily

shrugs on a STARBUCK'S UNIFORM -

JAIME:

(eyes the poptart)

That's not food.

BECCA:

Thank you, Rachael Ray.

Becca belts back the coffee like a shot.

INT. HALLWAY -- DAY

Jaime carries the bulging laundry bag as she and Becca clatter

down the stairs, the door of one of the apartments opens -

-- and they almost COLLIDE with MRS. ARAKELIAN, their

DOWNSTAIRS NEIGHBOR, a hardy-looking older EASTERN EUROPEAN,

early 60's, wearing a NURSE'S UNIFORM.

MRS. ARAKELIAN

(Armenian accent)

You're going to be late again.

(as they hurry past)

Your stomach flu is better, no?

4.

JAIME:

I'm fine, thanks. That tea really

helped.

MRS. ARAKELIAN

Come by later, I have something for

you!

JAIME:

No problem. See you!

BECCA:

(under her breath)

Whatever it is this time, I'm not

reading it, wearing it, applying it,

or eating it, ok?

Jaime gives up, pulls the door open, herding Becca through.

EXT. CAR ON ROAD -- DAY

A truly tragic Ford Pinto hatchback, circa 1974, makes its

way through the crowded, steep city streets.

INT. CAR ON ROAD -- DAY

Jaime drives, weaving through the narrow streets during rush

hour as she talks on wireless earpiece, Becca beside her -

JAIME:

(into earpiece)

I won't be late -- I mean, not very

late. Well, maybe a couple of

minutes. Five minutes. But

absolutely not more than ten -

(gratefully)

Thanks, Maggie. I owe you.
