MIERZWIAK (CONT'D)

(looking up)

Mary...

MARY:

(turning back)

Yes?

MIERZWIAK:

Order me a pastrami for after?

MARY:

Cole slaw, ice tea?

MIERZWIAK:

(nodding)

Thanks.

MARY:

Welcome, Howard.

She smiles and heads down the hall. Stan, 30's, tall,

spindly, and earnest in a lab coat pops out of a doorway.

STAN:

Boo.

MARY:

Hi.

She glances back nervously at Mierzwiak's open door.

STAN:

Barely seen you all morning, kiddo.

He leans in to kiss her. She cranes her neck to keep him

off.

MARY:

(reprimanding whisper)

Stan... c'mon...

STAN:

Sorry. I just --

MARY:

(somewhat guiltilly)

It's just...y'know... I mean...

STAN:

I know. Anyway --

MARY:

Anyway, I've got to do my tap

dance here.

She indicates the door to the reception area. Stan nods.

STAN:

See you later, alligator.

MARY:

'kay.

STAN:

Hey, if you're ordering lunch for

Mierzwiak, would you --

MARY:

I better do this, Stan.

Stan nods again and Mary opens the door to the waiting room.

MARY (CONT'D)

Ms. Kruczynski?

CLEMENTINE (O.S.)

Hi.

After a moment, Clementine appears in the doorway. Mary

leads her down the hall, not looking back.

MARY:

(professionally courteous)

How are you today?

CLEMENTINE:

Okay, I guess.

MARY:

(at Mierzwiak's office)

Here we are.

Mierzwiak steps out from behind his desk.

MIERZWIAK:

Ms. Kruczynski, please come in.

Clementine enters the office. Mary smiles at Mierzwiak and

closes the door, leaving them alone.

INT. OFFICE - CONTINUOUS

Mierzwiak directs Clementine to a chair next to a coffee

table and a conspicuously placed box of tissues. Mierzwiak

sits across from her. He smiles.

MIERZWIAK:

How are you today?

CLEMENTINE:

Okay, I guess.

MIERZWIAK:

(nodding sympathetically)

Well, why don't you tell me what's going

on? Do you mind if I turn this on?

He indicates a tape recorder.

CLEMENTINE:

I don't care.
