EXT. OCEAN’S SURFACE - MOMENTS LATER
Shane and the Professor rise to the surface as the boat
falters behind them. Shane pulls out a retractable
CROSSBOW. It clicks open and he shoots a CABLE into the
belly of the helicopter above him.
INT. HELICOPTER - A SECOND LATER
Shane appears at the Pilot’s door, holding the Professor.
Shane addresses the Pilot in perfect SERBIAN.
You know how to swim?
The Pilot nods, terrified. Shane TOSSES the Pilot out.
Shane swings into the hot seat and grabs the controls,
pulling the Professor in behind him.
ON THE SURFACE OF THE WATER - CONTINUOUS
The SEALS on the Jet Skis SALUTE Shane in the chopper,
then disappear gracefully back into the water.
INT. HELICOPTER - CONTINUOUS
Shane smiles, clearly he loves this kind of day. He looks
beside him, the Professor looks terrified. The Professor
takes out his mouth piece.
Oh my God. I can’t believe you... how’d
we... That was the most incredible...
Shane sticks the mouth piece back in the Professors’
mouth, shutting him up.
Better keep that on ‘til we get to the
(through the mouth piece)
Why? Poison gas?
No. I’m just not big on chit chat.
EXT. MOUNTAIN CLEARING - A LITTLE LATER
A Pave Hawk SH-60 helicopter, rotors whirling slowly,
waits. Shane’s chopper appears from behind a tree line
and sets down atop the mountain by a stream.
Shane and Charles sprint from the chopper towards the
waiting Hawk. Charles stops Shane.
Lieutenant, thank you. (He pats his
briefcase) You saved more than just my
life today. Can I call my wife to let
her know I’m okay?
Negative. Not imperative to the mission.
We have to keep moving. I have strict
orders to get you out of here safely.
