SPECK:

I don't mean to be rude but--

O'RYAN

How's your wife feel about it?

That spun things a bit. Speck pauses.

SPECK:

What?

O'RYAN

She must get lonely, with you gone all

the time. Does she?

SPECK:

Look, I...

O'RYAN

Do you get lonely?

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

O'RYAN (CONT'D)

Ya miss fucking her, Harold?

SPECK:

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

can't--

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.

O'RYAN (CONT'D)

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

(no reply)

I've got more. Would you like to see

them?

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

speechless, transfixed. Can't look away.

O'RYAN (CONT'D)

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.
