Nice meeting you, too.

HE LEAVES WITH THE GROUP. AS THEY WALK OUT, HE STOPS AND

LOOKS BACK. WE ANGLE ON JENNIFER AT THE BAR BY HERSELF. HE

STEPS INTO FRAME AND SITS BACK DOWN NEXT TO HER.

BRODY:

So, you really think the snow plow

thing was intentional?

JENNIFER SMILES, HAPPY HE’S BACK, THEN:

JENNIFER:

Well, he said it wasn’t, but he chased

her across a soccer field, so...

want to go to brunch. You’ll come,

right? I really want them to meet

you.

BRODY:

Uh....

JENNIFER PULLS BACK THE SHEET AND HOPS OUT OF BED: SHE’S

Just kidding. You should’ve seen your
