Outside the window is the mountain landscape.

CALEB:

How long was I out?

4.

JAY:

You fell asleep almost as soon as

we left the airport.

CALEB looks around. Wipes sleep out of his eyes. Gets his

bearings.

CALEB:

Damn. Can't believe I've been

missing this. I was so psyched to

be coming here, I was awake all

night.

JAY smiles.

JAY:

You're a programmer, right?

CALEB:

Yeah.

JAY:

Bay facility?

CALEB:

Long Island. I work on algorithms

for the search engine.

JAY:

Algorithms. Nice.

CALEB:

You know what they are?

JAY:

Nope. But I knew you were a

programmer. Soon as I set eyes on

you.

CALEB:

Is that a good thing?

JAY:

Means you and Mr Bateman speak the

same language. I'd say that's a

good thing.

Beat.

CALEB:

I guess you know him pretty well.

The pilot laughs.

JAY:

I've never even met him. I only

fly this shuttle between the

airport and his residence.

5.

JAY (CONT'D)

I did see him one time. Stood on

one of these mountain ridges.

JAY shrugs.

JAY (CONT'D)

Assume it was him, anyway. No one

else around for a hundred miles.
