BOB:

They're gonna have to open my pec's

again to drain the fluid.

Bob hugs tighter; then looks with empathy into Jack's eyes.

BOB:

Okay. You cry now.

Jack looks at Bob.

JACK (V.O.)

Wait. Back up. Let me start earlier.

INT. JACK'S BEDROOM - NIGHT

Jack lies in bed, staring at the ceiling.

JACK (V.O.)

For six months. I could not sleep.

INT. COPY ROOM - DAY

Jack, sleepy, stands over a copy machine. His Starbucks cup

sits on the lid, moving back and forth as the machine copies.

JACK (V.O.)

With insomnia, nothing is real.

Everything is far away. Everything

is a copy of a copy of a copy.

Other people make copies, all with Starbucks cups, sipping.

Jack picks up his cup and his copies and leaves.

INT. JACK'S OFFICE - SAME

Jack, sipping, stares blankly at a Starbucks bag on the

floor, full of newspapers and FAST FOOD GARBAGE.

JACK (V.O.)

When deep space exploration ramps up,

it will be corporations that name

everything. The IBM Stellar Sphere.

The Philip Morris Galaxy. Planet

Starbucks.
