MARY:

Hello.

(beat)

I'll be just a minute�

As Mary steps back inside, Lloyd takes out a tiny can of Binaca. He sprays his mouth, under his

arms, his hair, behind his ears�

CUT TO:

INT. LIMO - DAY

Lloyd is driving and Mary is in the back, looking out the window, lost in thought. She's got a

BRIEFCASE resting on her lap and she fingers the leather nervously. Lloyd keeps glancing at her

in the rear-view mirror, but for a moment he is speechless. Then:

LLOYD:

Why you going to the airport? Flying

somewhere?

MARY:

(dead-pan)

How'd you guess?

LLOYD:

Well, I saw your luggage, then when I

noticed the airline ticket, I put two

and two together.

(beat)

So where you heading?

MARY:

Aspen.

LLOYD:

Oh, you're gonna love it. I hear

California's beautiful this time of

year.

Mary looks back out the window and Lloyd sneaks another glance.

LLOYD:

Name's Christmas. Lloyd Christmas.

MARY:

I'm Mary.

ON LLOYD - we can almost see his mind work. He's desperate to impress her.

LLOYD:

Uh, this isn't my real job, you know.

It's only temporary.

MARY:

Oh?

LLOYD:

Yeah, you see, my friend Harry and I

are saving up our money so we can

open our own pet store.

MARY:

That's nice.

LLOYD:

(smiling)

I got worms.

MARY:

I beg your pardon?

LLOYD:

That's what we're gonna call it: I

Got Worms. We're gonna specialize in

selling worm farms � you know, like

ant farms. A lot of people don't

realize that worms make much better

pets than ants. They're quiet,

affectionate, they don't bite, and

they're super with the kids.

MARY:

Aren't ants quiet, too?

Lloyd realizes she has a point.

LLOYD:

Uh� well, sure � but they aren't half

as affectionate. And if you cut an

ant's head off, it won't grow back.

MARY:

I see.

LLOYD:

And best of all, worm farming is a

seventy-five-thousand-dollar-a-year

industry. I wouldn't mind having a

piece of that pie, if you know what I

mean.
