Call me crazy, she may be about to *

get an answer to that question. *

You know what they say about zombie *

attacks. You always remember your *

first time. Any guesses who’s *

gonna survive this one? Choose *

fast! *

The action STARTS again. The 400-pounder takes AINSLEY DOWN. *

Tallahassee recovers from the shock, thinks fast, *

aggressively RAISES his SANDWICH CART ABOVE his HEAD, and *

SMASHES it over the zombie’s noggin. The zombie FALLS STILL. *

COLUMBUS (V.O.) *

Maybe you woulda chosen the *

sandwich guy if you knew where this *

scene took place. Little state *

called Florida. *

Tallahassee stands tall and spies the BUSINESSMAN ZOMBIE *

approaching the broken window. *

COLUMBUS (V.O.) *

Little town called... Tallahassee. *

Tallahassee picks up a broken piece of the cart, brandishes *

it like a weapon... and steps out the window to DO BATTLE. *

COLUMBUS (V.O.) *

Welcome... to Zombieland. *
