THE COUNTER Where Markell finally arrives at the front of the line.
THE CORNER Where one of the two thugs looks across the room at Markell. For a
moment it looks as though he recognizes Markell.
He turns back to continue to talk with his friend. A fight breaks out in another
corner, and everyone's attention is drawn in that
BACK TO COUNTER Markell completes his transaction amidst the mayhem and walks
away popcorn in hand. In the corner, the thug
looks back toward the counter. On his face we see he now recalls where he has
seen Markell before.
5 INT/EXT COMPTON DRIVE-IN---THE CAR--NIGHT Markell comes back to the car,
glancing behind his back every so often.
MARKELL (looking over his left shoulder): I think I saw these fools that Pete
and I got beef with.
Markell turns to notice that Justice is not in the passenger seat. Justice leans
up from the back seat to kiss his cheek and tenderly run
her fingers around Markell's neck and shoulder. We notice her long fingernails.
Markell laughs and places the popcorn on the
dashboard. Our attention is drawn to the passenger window, where the drive-in
speaker hangs. Romantic movie music flows into the
car. On the driver's side the window is open. Suddenly, a pistol is placed next
to Markell's head. Time slows down. The gun is fired.
Justice screams. The popcorn scatters, and the passenger window breaks from the
traveling bullet. Time resumes. Justice's screams
turn to a whimper. There is blood on her hands. The drive-in speaker has now
fallen on the passenger seat. We hear the romantic
movie playing in the background.
