INT. COFFEE SHOP – MORNING

A normal Denny's, Spires-like coffee shop in Los Angeles.

It's about 9:00 in the morning. While the place isn't jammed,

there's a healthy number of people drinking coffee, munching

on bacon and eating eggs.

Two of these people are a YOUNG MAN and a YOUNG WOMAN. The

Young Man has a slight working-class English accent and,

like his fellow countryman, smokes cigarettes like they're

going out of style.

It is impossible to tell where the Young Woman is from or

how old she is; everything she does contradicts something

she did. The boy and girl sit in a booth. Their dialogue is

to be said in a rapid pace "HIS GIRL FRIDAY" fashion.

YOUNG MAN:

No, forget it, it's too risky. I'm

through doin' that shit.

YOUNG WOMAN:

You always say that, the same thing

every time:
never again, I'm through,

too dangerous.

YOUNG MAN:

I know that's what I always say. I'm

always right too, but –

YOUNG WOMAN:

– but you forget about it in a day

or two -

YOUNG MAN:

– yeah, well, the days of me

forgittin' are over, and the days of

me rememberin' have just begun.

YOUNG WOMAN:

When you go on like this, you know

what you sound like?

YOUNG MAN:

I sound like a sensible fucking man,

is what I sound like.

YOUNG WOMAN:

You sound like a duck.

(imitates a duck)

Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack,

quack, quack...

YOUNG MAN:

Well take heart, 'cause you're never

gonna hafta hear it again. Because

since I'm never gonna do it again,

you're never gonna hafta hear me

quack about how I'm never gonna do

it again.

YOUNG WOMAN:

After tonight.

The boy and girl laugh, their laughter putting a pause in

there, back and forth.

YOUNG MAN:

(with a smile)

Correct. I got all tonight to quack.

A WAITRESS comes by with a pot of coffee.

WAITRESS:

Can I get anybody anymore coffee?
