I don't mean to be rude but--


How's your wife feel about it?

That spun things a bit. Speck pauses.




She must get lonely, with you gone all

the time. Does she?


Look, I...


Do you get lonely?

Speck's so thrown now he can't answer.


Ya miss fucking her, Harold?


Listen, I don't know who you are but you


O'Ryan silences him... by holding up a piece of paper. On it

is a DRAWING. The image faces away from us. But Speck can see

it in rich detail. And his eyes go wide.

We catch GLIMPSES: The color of flesh. A body-part. Looks like

a rendering of a young, naked WOMAN.

And, just like that, Speck finds himself STARING. Glued.


Did it myself. It's sort of a hobby.

(no reply)

I've got more. Would you like to see


O'Ryan lowers it and slides a SECOND DRAWING over... Speck is

speechless, transfixed. Can't look away.


Tell me:
those jokes about the traveling

salesman and the farmer's daughter - are

they true?

(Speck remains silent)

Here. This one's my favorite.

O'Ryan slides over DRAWING #3. Again, we don't get to see it.

And we still haven't seen all of O'Ryan's face.
