PINE (CONT’D)

Where’s Roper?

JED:

He left late last night for a

meeting in Geneva.

He hands her a drink.

PINE:

You want milk?

JED:

Just sugar.

PINE:

This wasn’t very sensible of you.

Beat.

JED:

I’m sorry if my recklessness upsets

you.

A challenge. PINE gives her sugar, flicks a look out the

window. Beat. She sips her coffee.

JED (CONT’D)

So. Andrew. You’re joining the

Roper ship are you?

PINE:

Maybe.

A challenge.

JED:

It’s funny. I thought you were

trying to sink it.

PINE:

What makes you think that?

JED:

Why else would you break into his

study?

The Night Manager ep 4 final

PINE:

Same reason you did. I’m just keen

to find out who the man is who’s

employing me.

JED:

I’m not employed by anyone.

PINE:

Aren’t you?

JED:

We’re in a relationship Andrew.

PINE:

Business or pleasure.

JED:

Love.

He smiles.

JED (CONT’D)

What’s so funny about that?

PINE:

If it’s love. Shouldn’t it be

honest?

JED:

What the hell are you talking

about?

PINE flicks the camera until it shows the small boy he took

the photo of from Jed’s drawer.

JED (CONT’D)

Where d’you get this?

PINE:

I found it in your room. In a

drawer.

She stares at it. Then slaps PINE hard.

JED:

It wasn’t in just any drawer was

it?

PINE:

Is he your son?

JED:

None of your business.

PINE:

Who were you talking to on the

phone that afternoon?

The Night Manager ep 4 final

JED:

Quite the detective aren’t you?

She stares at the photo.

JED (CONT’D)

I was talking to my sister in

Desmoines. She looks after him.

PINE:

Why did you leave?

She speaks coolly. No self-pity.

JED:

Because I was seventeen years old

and not exactly made out for

motherhood. That’s why.

PINE:

Who’s the father?
