INT. THE BAR

AT THE END OF THE BAR - LARRY, the Ugly American. He's got

an obvious attitude, all of it bad. But there's something

about the guy -- he's not all bluster, and he has the look of

a seasoned tough guy who knows how to get rough and tumble.

He's big, and yeah he's got a gut, but the rest of him looks

solid.

LARRY:

(talking to the air)

You wanna know what football is? It's

hitting the other guy dirty and then

spitting in his face when he's down.

Football is all things American, and

American is A-Number-One the absolute

f*cking best there is. That's what

football is...

(he points to the TV)

...And that's not football.

The one man at the bar who's been watching the gam turns

slowly and gives Larry a long look. This is VINCENT: French,

hard boiled and solid. Charming when he wants to be, which

isn't all that often. He gives Larry a long look and then

speaks -

VINCENT:

(to Larry in perfect English)

Football -- American football -- is a

game for faggots.

A BEAT. The other two men at the bar, who seem like tough

customers themselves, pretend not to watch too closely, but

they're interested: what's Larry going to say? For a moment

it seems as if he's pissed, but then suddenly a smile breaks

out on his face and he laughs heartily at Vincent's remark.

Vincent joins in, as do the others. In particular - THE

BARTENDER looks relieved -- he's tough enough to toss a bar

drunk, but these guys are in a different league. The

Bartender laughs with the others, happy to have avoided a

confrontation as we go back to -
