ED:

OK. Thank you.

He calls Susie back.

SUSIE:

What happened?

ED:

Nothing.

SUSIE:

Jeez. Did you guys have a fight?

ED:

No. No.

SUSIE:

Did you call the school?

ED:

Yeah, a while ago. No one answered the phone there.

SUSIE:

It's not like her to not call, is it?

ED:

No, she would have called.

SUSIE:

Why don't you call the police?

ED:

The police?

SUSIE:

Maybe they know something? Like if she was in an accident.

ED:

It's going a little far, don't you think?

SUSIE:

I don't know. If you're worried...It's not like the police have anything better to do.

ED:

I guess. OK. I'll call you tomorrow. Sorry to wake you up.

SUSIE:

It's OK. Call me tomorrow.

He hangs up.

INT. KITCHEN - NIGHT

Ed looks around the kitchen, searching lazily for something to eat. He opens a cabinet that is full of boxes of fat-free Skin-EE( chocolate-marshmallow cookies.

He opens the fridge, looks around and takes the plate of food he made for his wife. He takes off the cellophane and starts to eat.

He sits at the table, but after a few more bites, he loses his appetite.

INT. LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

Ed sits at his desk, staring at the phone. He takes a breath and calls 911.

OPERATOR:

911 emergency.

ED:

Hi. I don't think this is an emergency.

OPERATOR:

What's the problem?

ED:

My wife hasn't come home and, I don't know..I wanted to check with the police to see if there was an accident.

OPERATOR:

When was the last time you saw her?

ED:

This morning. She was supposed to come home from work, but she didn't.

OPERATOR:

When does she get off work?

ED:

Around six. Usually.

OPERATOR:

She hasn't called since then?

ED:

No.

OPERATOR:

Do you have any idea where she might have gone? Maybe to a friend's house?

ED:

I don't think so. I called the only place I could think of.

OPERATOR:
