FADE IN:

EXT. A BUSY HIGHWAY ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF SEATTLE, WASHINGTON
– MORNING

Several cars zip by as commuters jockey for position on the
busy highway. A silver BMW sweeps out into the passing
lane and forges past several cars. We FIND the driver of
the BMW, ANDY CRANDELL, singing and bopping to the music
blasting from the car’s sound system. Andy’s hair is
messed and the dress shirt he wears is unbuttoned. An
expensive black leather briefcase occupies the front
passenger seat. A silk tie is draped over the seat. As
Andy’s car rolls down the highway we SEE several shots of
the city’s landscape including a softball field complex.
Andy’s car crosses over to the right lane and moves down an
exit for downtown Seattle. Andy’s car moves into a parking
spot marked with the corporate name, Apogee, and the number
four. After a few seconds pass Andy emerges from the car.
His hair is now smartly styled, his buttoned dress shirt is
covered with an expertly tailored suit jacket, and his tie
is neatly knotted around his neck. We also note he is of
slight build and a little shorter than the average male.
We SEE Andy’s trendy black leather shoes as he walks around
to the passenger side of his vehicle and removes his
briefcase. Andy walks toward an exit door of the parking
garage.


INT. THE APOGEE TECHNOLOGY, INC. CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS
BUILDING – A FEW MINUTES LATER

CLOSE SHOT of an elevator door. The door opens and we
watch Andy exit the elevator and walk toward a receptionist
stationed a few steps away from the elevator. He
approaches the receptionist, JENNIFER ADAMS, who is busily
typing on the keyboard of her computer. Sensing someone
approaching but not knowing it is Andy, Jennifer picks up
her head and displays a bright smile. As she recognizes
Andy, her radiant smile quickly turns to a very sullen
expression. She meekly greets Andy.

                        JENNIFER
           Good... Good morning, Andy.
                                                            2.
                        ANDY
           That was the quickest change of facial
           expression I’ve ever seen. Did I forget to do
           something?

                        JENNIFER
           No, not at all... sorry.

                        ANDY
           What’s up, Jen?

                        JENNIFER
           Nothing’s wrong... You just surprised me.     It’s
           early for you.

                        ANDY
           Not really. And I didn’t ask what was wrong.
           I asked what was up.

                          JENNIFER
           It’s Monday.

                        ANDY
           Do you have a lot of temps you’re trying to
           manage?

                        JENNIFER
           No, it’s not that it’s... it’s Monday, Andy.

                        ANDY
           I realize that, and Monday’s suck, but there is
           something else, yes?

                        JENNIFER
           Mr. Burkett wants to see you at nine-thirty.

                        ANDY
           Okay, that’s no big deal so far.

                        JENNIFER
           Andy, it’s not any Monday.   It’s the first
           Monday of the month.

                          ANDY
           Yeah, and?

Jennifer looks down and away. She begins to sniffle and
wipe back a tear.
                                                           3.

                        ANDY (cont’d)
           Oh, wait a minute. Jen! You don’t think I’m
           on the first Monday of the month chopping
           block, do you?

Jennifer does not reply and continues to look away. Andy
moves so he can see Jennifer’s face and make direct eye
contact with her.

                        ANDY
           Jen, I’m sure he just wants an update on the
           Preeminent Defender... game.

Jennifer chokes back some tears.

                        JENNIFER
           Yeah, sure. He said he’d be in your office at
           nine-thirty.

                        ANDY
           There, voila! You know Preston never begins
           axing people until ten o’clock. And he always
           does it in his office, right? In fact, Jim and
           I always joke about the walk of death down the
           hallway and into the subsequent unemployment
           line.

                         JENNIFER
           Okay.

                        ANDY
           Come on, Jen. Don’t worry about it. I know
           I’m right on this one. Preeminent Defender is
           way too big to have me off of it now. So cheer
           up! I’ll tell you how right I was as soon as
           the meeting’s over, okay?

Jennifer nods quietly in agreement. As Andy walks down the
hall toward his office, he passes Jim’s office. JIM WEAVER
looks up from the USA Today newspaper he is reading. Jim
calls to Andy.

                         JIM
           Hey, Andy!   Come on in!

Jim’s POV as Andy pops his head in Jim’s office.

                        ANDY
           Hey, Jim. I didn’t know you had arrived.   I
           didn’t see your car in the lot.
                                                          4.
Jim picks up a Nerf ball and tosses it to Andy. Andy walks
toward Jim and closer to the falling ball. Andy catches
the ball and nonchalantly tosses it over his shoulder. We
SEE the ball bounce on the rim of a Nerf basketball hoop,
hanging in the corner of the room, and fall through the
net. Andy walks deeper into Jim’s office and they continue
their conversation.

                        JIM
           I left it at Deb’s place.   We rode in together.

                        ANDY
           So you two hooked up again after I left? Don’t
           forget that office romance stuff can get pretty
           dicey.

                         JIM
           We’ll worry about that after the wild sex gets
           old, big guy.

                         ANDY
                   (chuckling)
           Okay.

                        JIM
           Hey, you wimped out kind of early last night.
           Your wildness at office parties may be
           legendary, but you didn’t prove it last night.

                        ANDY
           Ah, that’s the very definition of legendary.

                        JIM
           Uh, yeah... But it’s not like we win the
           league softball championship everyday. We
           needed our MVP to hang out and celebrate on
           Burkett’s tab.

                        ANDY
           Well, I don’t know about MVP.

                        JIM
           Are you kidding? Those plays you made from
           deep in the hole at shortstop, not one but
           three! They were phenomenal! Without those,
           we go down.

                        ANDY
           Hey, you never know how it would have shaken
           out. Who knows, you might have stepped up and
           made a big play to win it for us.
                                                        5.
                        JIM
           Doubtful. I heard some of the guys saying that
           this trophy is a big thing to Burkett. One guy
           said the reason he hired you was for your
           glove.

                        ANDY
           You know, in the interview he asked me about my
           baseball skills. I thought it was odd, but now
           that you mention it...

                        JIM
           Are you kidding?

                        ANDY
                  (deadpan)
           No. Of course I am. It’s just a corporate
           league championship for Christ’s sake.

                        JIM
           Even so, my sources tell me he’s pretty pumped
           up about it.

                        ANDY
           Maybe that’s why he wants to see me this
           morning.

Jim looks incredulously at Andy. Jim quickly gets up and
moves to the Nerf hoop. He retrieves the ball out of the
wastepaper basket situated under the hoop.

                        JIM
           He wants to see you today?   Should I take my
           hoop down?

                        ANDY
           You might want to.   I heard it’s office
           inspection day.

                       JIM
           No. Hey, but it is the first Monday of the
           month!

                          ANDY
           Oh, come on!    Don’t you start!   Jen already did
           this to me.

                        JIM
           But Andy, it’s the first Monday of the month.
           Why does he want to see you on the first Monday
           of the month?!
                                                 6.
             ANDY
I’m guessing it’s about Preeminent Defender.
What else?

              JIM
Oh, man.   Don’t ask that!

             ANDY
Yeah, I know, o-o-o, walk of death, yadda,
yadda, yadda. Look, the Defender project is
worth millions. We’ve got an update
presentation to make to the board at the end of
the week. He probably wants to nail it down
today.

             JIM
I don’t know, Andy. Maybe you better scoot out
of the office for a couple of hours.

             ANDY
Yeah, that would help. Look, no offense, but
you haven’t been here long enough. Believe me
when I tell you, he needs me to see this to
fruition. This project puts us on level
ground, no above, all the other big boys. I’m
not going anywhere, now or later.

             JIM
You’re right. Besides, there aren’t any other
free agent shortstops out there to replace you.

               ANDY
Hey, thanks.    That means a lot to me.

             JIM
What can I say? I’m in touch with my emotions.
You should work on that.

             ANDY
I’ll put it on my Things that I need to do to
make me a better person list.

             JIM
Yeah, besides, he can’t get rid of you because
we’re going to be losing our clean up hitter.

             ANDY
Where’s Justin going?
                                                               7.
                         JIM
            His wife is going to have him out on his ear
            when she hears he’s been with the sexy college
            intern.

                            ANDY
            No way.     The redhead?

                           JIM
            Exactly.    And I also heard that Gina is seeing
            Rachel.

                         ANDY
            No surprise there.

                         JIM
            It explains why Rachel wasn’t interested in me.

                         ANDY
            If that works for you. Hey, I’m glad I got the
            corporate briefing on personnel, but I’ve got
            to get to my office and get some things done
            before Burkett comes in.

                         JIM
            Coming to your office is a first.

                         ANDY
            He’s probably bringing my MVP trophy so I
            better dust off a spot for it.

                            JIM
            Righ-h-t.

                         ANDY
            See you later.

                            JIM
            Okay.

Andy walks out of Jim’s office. As he moves out the door
Jim reaches to take the Nerf hoop down.



INT. ANDY’S OFFICE – LATER THE SAME MORNING

Andy is in his office seated at his desk and working at his
computer. A clock perched on his desk reads: 9:35. A
dialogue window pops up on Andy’s computer screen.
                                                          8.
The text in the box reads: He’s on his way. Andy closes the
pop up and begins shuffling some papers on his desk in
preparation for Preston Burkett’s entrance. We SEE PRESTON
BURKETT enter Andy’s office. Andy stands up to greet him.

                         ANDY
            Good morning, Preston.

                          PRESTON
            Good morning, Andy. Nice work on the
            diamond. Can’t wait to see the trophy.
            It’s the first time we’ve won the league
            championship.

                         ANDY
            Yes, so I hear. Glad I could help.

Preston sits down near Andy’s desk.   He casually puts his
feet up on Andy’s desk.

                         PRESTON
            Hey, I’m taking my son to Cooperstown.     You
            ever been?

                         ANDY
            Many times. I grew up close by. Let me know
            when you’re going, and I’ll clue you in on some
            other great places to see.

                            PRESTON
            Okay, I will.

                         ANDY
            So I’m guessing that you want to tie up this
            presentation we’ve got next week?

                          PRESTON
            Well, no...   Andy this is really hard for me.

                            ANDY
            What is?

                         PRESTON
            There’s no easy way to say this. The
            corporation is buying out your contract.

                            ANDY
            What?

                         PRESTON
            I think you’ll find it’s very lucrative.
                                                             9.
                         ANDY
            You are kidding, right?

                         PRESTON
            No.

Andy is dumbfounded. He snaps out of a bewildered trance
and notes Preston’s feet propped up on his desk.

                         ANDY
            I’m at least going to take the P.D. project to
            market, right?

                         PRESTON
            The buy out is effective immediately.

INTERCUT: Jennifer at her desk as she touches a few buttons
on her telephone. She then places the headset piece from
around her neck to her ears. Through the headset we HEAR
the conversation between Andy and Preston.

                         ANDY (V.O.)
            This is bullshit, Preston!

Andy’s voice blasts loudly through the headset and we SEE
Jennifer pull the earpiece away from her ears.

BACK TO SCENE

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            That contract was for my protection!

                          PRESTON
            It’s not a unilateral contract. Either one of
            us can enact the negation clause. If you’ll
            recall, it’s not a little sum of money you’ll
            be receiving.

                         ANDY
            Really? Refresh my memory. Am I getting as
            much as the projections say I stand to make
            once we go market?

                         PRESTON
            There’s no guarantee that we’ll get this to
            market....

                         ANDY
            Oh, come on! Do you believe for one second
            that we won’t?
                                                            10.
                         PRESTON
            I...

                         ANDY
            I didn’t think so!... Oh, I get it now. How
            stupid could I be! My buy out is a pittance
            compared to what I’d get after P.D. is
            introduced. And you knew it! So who the hell
            is getting my share, Preston?! How much do you
            stand to make by firing me?

                         PRESTON
            It’s not like that.

                         ANDY
            Sure. Tell me, did you support me or just go
            along with the decision?

                         PRESTON
            Don’t make this any harder for me.

                         ANDY
            Harder for you? For Christ’s sake, Preston.
            Can’t you do better than that?! I’m sure
            that’s the standard speech you give everyone!
            What’s next the, “Look I really respect you,
            you’re a good worker” bullshit too?!

                         PRESTON
            Andy, this doesn’t have to get hostile. Go
            home. Take a look at what you’ll be making....

                         ANDY
            Funny, you don’t look real disappointed.
            And get your fuckin’ feet off my desk!

Preston lowers his feet to the floor.

                         PRESTON
            I don’t want to have to call security.

                         ANDY
            Relax. You’re not going to have to do that.
            I’m pissed, but I’m not an idiot!

                         PRESTON
            I’ll have Melissa e-mail you a copy of the
            contract. Calm down and take a look at it.
                                                          11.
                         ANDY
            Do I have a choice? Now get your feigned
            sincerity out of my office while it’s still
            mine!

Preston stands up and begins to leave Andy’s office.

                          PRESTON
            Andy, I....

                         ANDY
            Save it, Preston. You don’t want to say
            anything I could use against you later.

Preston leaves Andy’s office. We SEE Andy move aimlessly
around his office. After a few seconds he composes himself
and grabs his briefcase. He then collects a few things off
his desk. He opens his briefcase and stuffs some papers
from his desk into the briefcase. He collects a couple of
photographs from the desk. We SEE one photograph of Andy
pictured with his parents and his twin sister. After
packing the photograph into his briefcase, Andy spins around
and searches for anything he can grab to take with him. He
moves to his desk and unlocks a drawer. He pulls out a
small locked box that contains some computer disks. He
places the whole box in his briefcase. After contemplating
this move he removes the box from his briefcase. He unlocks
and opens the box. He searches for one particular disk. He
finds a purple memory stick and pulls it out of the box. He
then grabs a new green memory stick from a pocket in his
briefcase. He places both data storage devices in the
computer. We SEE the computer screen as it prompts him to
select copy data. Andy copies the data and then places the
original back in the box. He performs a few keystrokes to
erase his recent activity from the computer’s memory. He
places the copied data stick in his briefcase. He then
locks the box of disks and places it back in his desk. He
tosses the keys on the desk, grabs his briefcase and suit
coat and walks out of the office.


INTERCUT: JENNIFER’S RECEPTIONIST AREA – SAME TIME

Jennifer stands up, walks away from her desk and moves down
the hall toward a sign displaying a women’s restroom symbol.

BACK TO SCENE

Andy walks past Jim’s office. His door is open but the
office is empty. Andy stomps angrily down the hall.
                                                          12.
He walks past Jennifer’s vacated reception area and takes
the elevator down to the parking garage. We PICK UP Andy
sitting in his car slumped over the steering wheel. He sits
up straight and pounds his fist into the steering wheel. He
then starts his car and pulls out of the parking garage.


INT. THE ALLURE BEAUTY SALON – A LITTLE LATER

Andy, looking somewhat disheveled, walks in the salon.        He
is greeted by the owner, JOY.

                           JOY
            Hey, Andy.    Rough power lunch?

                            ANDY
            No.

                         JOY
            You do know you’re early.      Your appointment
            isn’t until five.

                         ANDY
            Oh, I know. I had a little free time since I
            just got fired, so I thought I’d come by early.
            How early am I?

Joy looks up from the appointment book she has been
scanning.

                           JOY
            Fired.    That’s a good one.

Joy reads Andy’s face and realizes he is serious.

                           JOY
            Oh, my.    You’re not kidding, are you?

                            ANDY
            No.

                            JOY
            Are you okay?

                         ANDY
            Yeah, I’m mostly just pissed off.

                         JOY
            I really want to talk to you, but I’m in the
            middle of a color right now. Can you hang on
            for a few minutes?
                                                           13.
                         ANDY
            Yeah, I’m fine. I just thought I’d stop by a
            little early, that’s all.

                         JOY
            Well, if you want your hair cut now I can have
            Pamela do it. Then I’ll have some time to
            talk, okay?

                         ANDY
            Sure, why not.

                         JOY
            Hey, it seems like you don’t really have a
            reason to keep your hair short now. Why don’t
            you get a little wild and let it grow?

Andy rubs his eyes and shakes his head.

                         JOY (cont’d)
            Sorry. That wasn’t very empathetic. Let me
            introduce you to Pam. But you have to promise
            to go easy on her.

                         ANDY
            Easy?

                         JOY
            She’s new here, and a little different.

                         ANDY
            Different?

                         JOY
            Yeah. You probably wouldn’t know it if I
            didn’t tell you. She’s a pre-op transsexual.

                         ANDY
            Okay, can my day get a weirder?

                         JOY
            She’s really great, and gorgeous. Like I said,
            you’d have no clue unless I told you. Just be
            nice, okay?

                         ANDY
            Sure, why wouldn’t I be?

                         JOY
            Your first comment didn’t help.   Come back with
            me and I’ll introduce you.
                                                            14.
Andy and Joy walk to the back of the salon. We SEE Pam
arranging some beauty products on a counter. She is
beautiful. The only hint that she might have been born a
male is that she is slightly taller than most women. Joy
leads Andy up to Pam.

                         JOY
            Pam, this is Andy.     Andy, please meet Pam.

                         ANDY
            Hi, nice to meet you.

                         PAM
            Hi there, Andy. How can I help?

                         JOY
            I usually cut Andy, but I was wondering if you
            could. I‘ve got to get back to my color before
            she turns eggplant purple.

                          PAM
            Sure.   Have a seat, Andy.

                         JOY
            I told him he should let it go, but Mr.
            Corporate needs it clean and crisp.

Andy stares down Joy.

                        JOY (cont’d)
            Sorry. We’ll talk later.     Maybe dinner?
            I’ll cook.

                          ANDY
            Okay.

                         JOY
            Don’t let it get you too down.

Joy walks out of the room as Andy sits in Pam’s cutting
chair.

                         PAM
            What did she mean by that?

                         ANDY
                   (briskly)
            Nothing.

Pam drapes an apron around Andy.
                                                           15.
                         PAM
            I apologize. I didn’t mean to pry. I just
            thought she meant to not let her cooking get
            you down.

                         ANDY
                   (laughs)
            Oh, no. And you weren’t prying. I didn’t mean
            to sound so curt. It’s just that it hasn’t
            been the best of days for me.

                         PAM
            Want to talk about it?

Pam picks up a pair of scissors.

                         ANDY
            I just got fired.

                           PAM
            Ouch.

                         ANDY
            I guess relatively speaking, it’s not that bad.
            It’s not like I’m going to be destitute. I’ll
            make a nice chunk of change.

                         PAM
            I’m not sure I follow.

                         ANDY
            My contract was bought out.

As Pam listens to Andy she studies his face.   Pam looks into
Andy’s eyes, then at his hair.

                         PAM
            What do you do?

                         ANDY
            I’m a software developer.   Well, I was.

                         PAM
            I think you still are. It sounds like you just
            don’t work for the same company anymore.

                           ANDY
            That’s true.

                         PAM
            What do you want to do with your hair?
                                                          16.
                          ANDY
            Oh, sorry.   I’m used to Joy just doing the same
            old thing.

                         PAM
            Same old thing. That sounds boring. Why don’t
            you treat this as a new beginning? You’ve got
            great hair. I think it would look great
            longer. Why not let it grow a little? Be a
            little different.

                         ANDY
            Why not. It’s not like I have to fit any
            corporate mold right now.

                         PAM
            Exactly. I’ll just clip off a couple of ends
            then we’ll wait and see how it grows.

                         ANDY
            Okay.

                         PAM
            Then I’ll take care of your brows.

                         ANDY
            Excuse me?

                         PAM
            You’re going for a fresh, new look, right? You
            don’t want a uni-brow bringing your look down.
            I’ll just clean them up for you.

                         ANDY
            Okay.

Pam begins to brush Andy’s hair.

                         PAM
            I can give you a nice, high, Cindy Crawford
            arch.

Andy squirms in his chair.

                         PAM
            Relax. I’m kidding.    I only do that for my
            drag queen friends.

Andy chuckles then relaxes.
                                                            17.
                         ANDY
            Just to be upfront – Joy told me and I’m okay
            with it.

                         PAM
            What?! That bitch! She’s got no right!       I’m
            going to kick her ass!

                         ANDY
            No, no... it’s okay, really.

                         PAM
                   (smiling)
            I’m kidding. Can you picture me kicking
            anybody’s ass?

                         ANDY
            Well, that depends.

                         PAM
            I’m not risking wrecking this face, honey.

Pam and Andy laugh and Pam continues to prep Andy’s hair by
wetting it down with a spray bottle of water. We then SEE
them AD LIB talking and smiling while Pam gives Andy a
facial and waxes his eyebrows.


EXT. NEAR ANDY’S HOUSING COMPLEX – THE SAME DAY - LATE
AFTERNOON

Andy drives past a housing development. We SEE a few of the
stately homes of the affluent community. As Andy drives by
one of the homes he passes a moving van and a small sports
car parked behind it. A pretty woman, KRISTEN COOPER, pops
out from the moving van. Andy’s POV as he sees Kristen make
her way up the walkway to the home. She carries a box
overflowing with picture frames.

                        ANDY
            Wow. She’s gorgeous.   Maybe she could use a
            hand.

Andy pulls over in front of the moving van.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            Now the only problem is how to introduce
            myself. Let’s see... How about, Hi, I’m Andy
            and I’m unemployed. Yeah, that will work.
                   (makes an L shape on his forehead)
            Up goes her big loser radar.
                                                          18.
Andy looks in his rear view mirror and we SEE Kristen
struggling with the box as a piece of paper floats out of
it. As Kristen begins to chase after the paper she notices
Andy’s car.

                        ANDY
            Shit.  She saw me. I can’t just pull away
            now. Oh well, here we go!

Andy steps out of the car and walks toward Kristen who has
set the box down on the ground. She chases the piece of
paper floating in Andy’s direction. A puff of wind pushes
the paper closer to Andy, and we SEE him bend down and scoop
it off the ground. We HEAR Kristen speak to Andy.

                         KRISTEN
            Thank you so much.

                         ANDY
            You’re very welcome.

Andy looks at the paper before handing it back to Kristen.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
             Wow. A master’s degree in psychology! You
             must be unpretentious. Most people have those
             framed and show them off on a wall to impress
             everyone but you decided to let it blow away.

                         KRISTEN
                   (laughs)
             Actually, I did have it in a frame but it
             broke during the trip, so I threw it out.

                         ANDY
             Yes, I saw it fly out of the box.

                         KRISTEN
             No, I meant the frame.

                         ANDY
             I know. I’ll have to get you a new one as a
             welcome to the neighborhood gift. You are
             moving in, yes?

                         KRISTEN
             No, I was heisting the real owner’s belongings
             but now you’ve caught me.
                                                            19.
                         ANDY
             Really? I guess I could be your partner in
             crime and give you a hand.

                          KRISTEN
             Would you?

                         ANDY
             Certainly, but we split the take fifty-fifty.

Kristen and Andy exchange smiles.

                         KRISTEN
            Sixty-forty. I found it.

                         ANDY
            Deal. Seriously, I’d be happy to help. This
            doesn’t look like a fun job for one person.

                         KRISTEN
            I’m not sure it would be fun even with twenty
            people pitching in.

                          ANDY
            True.   But I’m a masochist.   No, really I’m
            Andy.

Andy extends his hand to Kristen.

                         KRISTEN
                   (shaking Andy’s hand)
            Hi, Andy. I’m Kristen. Nice to meet you.

Andy and Kristen prolong their handshake and exchange looks
that indicates there is an initial attraction between them.
Their hands separate and Andy picks up the box.

                         ANDY
            Where shall I put this?

                         KRISTEN
            Come on up the walk and inside, and I’ll show
            you.

Andy and Kristen walk toward the house.

                         KRISTEN
            Do you live in this development?
                                                            20.
                         ANDY
            No, I was just looking for someone who needed
            help moving, large heavy objects.

                         KRISTEN
            You found the right place.

                         ANDY
            I live in the brick Tudor a little ways down
            the road.

                         KRISTEN
            Well, Mr. Andy – I’ll be happy to buy you
            dinner for your trouble.

                         ANDY
            One box and I get dinner?

                         KRISTEN
            I was thinking more like the twenty or so that
            are in the van. They’re not very heavy.

                         ANDY
            You have a deal.

                         KRISTEN
            Great. Thank you. Let me take this box inside
            and I’ll meet you at the van.

                         ANDY
            Sure.

We SEE several shots of Andy and Kristen carrying boxes into
the house. We SEE them carry one big box together. Their
mutual attraction makes the job enjoyable as they exchange
smiles and AD LIB conversation.


INT. KRISTEN’S HOUSE – A LITTLE LATER

Several boxes are scattered around the front living area of
the house.

                         KRISTEN
            That’s all there is for now. The next truck
            won’t be here until tomorrow, but I have movers
            hired for that so you’re off the hook. Are you
            still up for dinner?
                                                21.
             ANDY
Sure. But given the state of your house, I
should cook for you.

             KRISTEN
I could go for a pizza.

             ANDY
Never in my life have I turned down pizza...

             KRISTEN
I’ll buy, you fly?

             ANDY
Sure. There’s a place not too far from here
that has the closest thing to New York pizza
I’ve found, if that’s okay with you.

             KRISTEN
You’re from back east?

             ANDY
Upstate, New York.

             KRISTEN
I’m from Connecticut.     A bedroom community for
the City, really.

             ANDY
Ah, so you know what I mean when I say New York
pizza.

            KRISTEN
Absolutely. People say it’s not the same out
here. Something to do with the water.

             ANDY
That’s the excuse I always hear although I’m
not sure I buy it.

            KRISTEN
Me either. Anyway, how about you bring it back
here? I can scrounge up some plates.

              ANDY
Sure.   How about a nice bottle of wine too?

             KRISTEN
Perfect.
                                                           22.
                         ANDY
            I’ll get cleaned up and make the delivery in
            about an hour, okay?

                           KRISTEN
            Great.    See you then.

                            ANDY
            Okay.    Bye.

Andy happily walks away from Kristen’s house. Kristen’s
POV. She notices Andy’s rear as she watches him walk away.
Kristen smiles admiringly then she moves to a box labeled
towels and pulls out a large bath towel.


INT. KRISTEN’S HOUSE – ESTABLISHING – A LITTLE LATER

Andy and Kristen are seated on the floor in a room of the
house. In the b.g. in another room several boxes scattered
about. We SEE Andy and Kristen each finishing a slice a
pizza. Next to their plates rest two full glasses of wine.
Andy and Kristen exchange smiles as they continue to enjoy
their pizza and conversation.

                         KRISTEN
            You haven’t told me what brought you to the
            west coast.

                         ANDY
            Work primarily. But I also needed a change
            of scenery, a restart on life I guess.

                         KRISTEN
            What was so bad back east?

                            ANDY
            My marriage.

Kristen looks down then takes a sip of her wine.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            We started out well but....

                         KRISTEN
            You don’t have to talk about it.

                            ANDY
            I don’t mind.
                                                            23.
                         KRISTEN
            What happened?

                         ANDY
            Life. Careers. We were both moving fast down
            our own roads. I had long hours, so did she.
            We eventually realized we didn’t need each
            other. I’m not talking about being totally
            dependent on each other, but marriage should
            involve having a desire to come home and share
            life together, talk about work when necessary,
            but be able to forget it and talk about more
            meaningful things. A couple should know each
            other intimately. They should know each
            other’s passions. We never really did. We
            just became machines that interacted well
            together but without any zest. I needed more
            zeal. In the end, we stopped laughing and
            started finding faults... Sorry, I didn’t mean
            to babble.

Kristen stares knowingly at Andy.   She sits upright and
ceases her gaze.

                         KRISTEN
            You weren’t babbling. Most people can’t delve
            deep enough to understand what they are truly
            looking for in a relationship. It sounds like
            you’ve figured that out.

                          ANDY
            Your turn.   How did you end up out here?

                         KRISTEN
            Well, I’ve always wanted to see new places.
            I’ve always been adventurous in that respect.
            Sometimes I fantasize about sailing off to an
            exotic beach and leaving everything behind.

                          ANDY
            Antigua.

                          KRISTEN
            Antigua?   Why there?

                         ANDY
            It’s beautiful. It’s a great place to kick
            back and enjoy... to get lost. Have you ever
            been there?
                                                24.
               KRISTEN
No.

               ANDY
I’m sorry.    I interrupted.

             KRISTEN
I was about to say that I’d seen enough of
the northeast, so when this job opportunity
came up I took it.

             ANDY
Job opportunity?

             KRISTEN
I took a position on a new investigative team
established here.

             ANDY
Are you a television reporter?

             KRISTEN
No. Along with the master’s degree in
psychology I have a degree in criminal
justice.

             ANDY
Are you telling me you’re a cop, I mean
a police officer?

             KRISTEN
I’m an investigator. The team I’ve been
assigned to is a relatively new branch of the
FBI. It’s a new team that investigates
corporate...

               ANDY
Corruption?    Like Enron and Worldcom?

             KRISTEN
Yes, corruption. That covers it.

             ANDY
FBI. Wow! I never would have guessed with a
thousand chances. So this is a good
opportunity?

             KRISTEN
I hope. Believe it or not it’s still hard for
a woman to crack the old boy’s network.
             (more)
                                                         25.
                         KRISTEN (cont’d)
            No offense. When this opportunity came up I
            reasoned if I want to move up I better be
            willing to move, so I decided to go for it.
            I’ve just been appointed to be second in charge
            of our unit.

                            ANDY
            That’s great.

                          KRISTEN
            Yes, except apparently I’ve ruffled a few
            feathers of some of the more senior
            investigators who were looked over. What they
            don’t understand is while they may have the
            seniority, they are all old school. I’ve not
            only worked hard on the job, but I also have my
            degrees including a dual major in business.
            The courses I’ve completed were intensive and
            comprehensive. That gives me an edge over some
            of the older investigators who aren’t willing
            to bring themselves up to speed with the real
            world... Now I feel like I should apologize
            for babbling.

                          ANDY
            Not at all. The corporate world certainly
            moves lightning fast. You either keep up or
            get squashed.
                   (to himself)
            Oh, shit. Now she’s going to ask me about my
            work!

                         KRISTEN
            It sounds like you know a little about
            business.

Andy feels the pager on his side.

                         ANDY
            I’m sorry but my phone is vibrating and it’s
            distracting me. I should have turned it off,
            but I wasn’t expecting any calls.

                         KRISTEN
            Oh, that’s okay. Go ahead and see who it is.
            If you’re finished I’m just going to pick up
            these plates and get us some more wine.

Kristen stands up and begins picking up her plate.   Andy
checks his cell phone.
                                                         26.
Kristen takes the plates and glasses away and moves to a
table where the bottle of wine rests. Andy checks the
message displayed on his phone. We read the message with
Andy. It reads: I’m cooking, where are you? Andy slaps his
forehead as he remembers his dinner plans with Joy.

                         ANDY
            Oh, man... Shoot.

                         KRISTEN
            Something wrong?

                         ANDY
            No, I just forgot to do something.   I’ll fix it
            tomorrow.

Kristen brings over the refilled glasses of wine.

                          KRISTEN
            Great wine.

                          ANDY
            Thanks.

                         KRISTEN
            Good pizza too.

                         ANDY
            I’ve had this pizza several times, but it’s
            never tasted this good. I think the company
            makes all the difference.

                          KRISTEN
            I concur.

Andy and Kristen smile, clink their glasses together, and
take a sip of their wine.


INT. THE LAW OFFICE OF EMERSON AND STOWE – DAY

Andy is seated at a small conference table with his
lawyer, STEVEN EMERSON. Steven leafs through a copy of
Andy’s employment contract with Apogee, Inc.

                         STEVEN
            I’m sorry to say, Andy, that Burkett is right.
            It’s a bilateral agreement.

                         ANDY
            Why the hell did we agree to that?
                                             27.
             STEVEN
We wouldn’t have if I had known the
implications of the product you’re developing.

             ANDY
This thing has been under the tightest secrecy.
No one has a clue what we’re, excuse me, what
they’re about to unveil. Silly me for being so
true to the company that I didn’t even tell my
own lawyer.

             STEVEN
In this case, yes. Confidentiality does still
exist, Andy.

             ANDY
I know, and I trust you. It’s just I never
figured this would happen.

             STEVEN
You were too close to it. That’s precisely why
you should have told me. My advice at this
point is to take the buy out. Six figures
isn’t bad.

             ANDY
Do you know how much I could have made?

             STEVEN
Assuming this goes to market.

               ANDY
Oh, it will.

             STEVEN
Andy, I know you’re in the game business, but
if you treat this as a game you need to get
retribution on, it’s going to tear you apart
from the inside out, and you’ll become a very
bitter person. It’s not a get even thing.
Unfortunately, it’s business.

             ANDY
Yes, but what about the principle....

             STEVEN
It’s business, Andy. However, I may be missing
something here, but I’m guessing once this
project is announced Wall Street will have a
field day with it and a lot of people will jump
on the stock, driving it up.
                                                            28.
                          ANDY
            Hmmm...   Yes, maybe.

                         STEVEN
            You could make a nice little sum by investing
            your buy out back into the company’s stock.

Andy quietly contemplates Steven’s last comment.


INT. A TRENDY CAFÉ IN THE BUSINESS DISTRICT OF SEATTLE – DAY

Andy is seated at a table, his half eaten lunch sits in
front of him. Andy washes down a bite of his food with a
long gulp of a beer. Jim Weaver enters the café. Jim
scouts the tables in search of Andy. He spots Andy and
walks over to him.

                         JIM
            Hey, I thought I might find you here.

                            ANDY
            Hey, Jimbo!     How you doin’?

Jim sits at Andy’s table.

                          JIM
            I’m fine.   How about you?

                         ANDY
            I’m great, just great.

Andy’s a little too animated and appears a little drunk.
Andy grabs Jim around the neck and pulls him so close their
noses almost touch. They separate before Jim continues.

                         JIM
            I’ve been trying to get in touch with you.

                         ANDY
            I know, and I appreciate that. I apologize.     I
            should have returned your calls... Hey, can
            you believe I got the walk of death? How
            ironic.

                         JIM
            Well, technically since he came to you, you
            didn’t get to take the official walk. You
            know, since Burkett changed his pattern of
            firing people everyone is paranoid when they
            hear he’s coming into their office.
                                                            29.
Andy and Jim reflect quietly for a moment, then they both
laugh.

                         JIM (cont’d)
            Andy, really, are you okay?

                         ANDY
            Yeah, I am. Hey how’s this for irony. The one
            time in my life I’m unemployed; I meet a
            fantastic woman I’m flipping over.

                          JIM
            Really?

                         ANDY
            Yeah, but I’ve got a better story to tell you
            first. Let me get you a beer and I’ll
            tell you a very interesting tale. You got a
            few minutes? I know I do.

Andy grabs the attention of a WAITRESS. He picks up his
beer bottle and puts up two fingers. The waitress
acknowledges him with a nod of her head. In the b.g. at a
table within earshot we SEE a man reading the Wall Street
Journal. We also SEE some Halloween decorations displayed
in the café.

                         ANDY
            Jim, we live in a very precarious technological
            age. How would you feel if I told you Apogee,
            thanks to me mostly, could read all the
            encryption codes in cyberspace?

                         JIM
            You mean like all the secure transactions?

                         ANDY
            That and more. I mean I could gleam all your
            banking and personal info from you. How would
            you feel.

                          JIM
            Violated.   And not very safe.   Worried about my
            money.

                          ANDY
            Exactly.

The man reading the Wall Street Journal tilts his head and
attempts to listen in on Jim and Andy’s conversation. The
waitress brings over two beers to Jim and Andy’s table.
                                                           30.
                            WAITRESS
            Here you are.

                            ANDY
                      (to waitress)
            Thanks.

                         WAITRESS
            You’re welcome. Let me know if you need
            anything else.

                            ANDY
                      (to waitress)
            Okay.

The waitress walks away and approaches the table where the
man with the Wall Street Journal is sitting. Andy pours
Jim’s beer. He then finishes the remainder of the beer he
had before Jim arrived then continues on to the bottle the
waitress just delivered. He then picks up his conversation
with Jim.

                         ANDY
            And what do you think that would do to all the
            companies who design “secure systems”?

                         JIM
            Bankrupt them. Or at least put them in a big
            hole until they could catch up with the
            technology.

                         ANDY
            Jim, listen well and do not ever repeat any of
            what I’m about to tell you, okay?

                            JIM
            Agreed.

                         ANDY
            Preeminent Defender. It’s not a new action
            adventure game. That was just a cover. I
            shouldn’t tell you this, but screw them.
            They’re the ones that fucked me. What we’ve
            really created is a program that’s an
            encryption decoder. Then on the back of that
            we’ve developed a new encryption method that
            everyone will need once we expose how
            relatively easily we can penetrate the old
            encoding system. The project also allows for
            instantaneous currency exchange and discreet
            money transfers into untraceable accounts.
                                                            31.
                         JIM
            Wow. That’s going to turn the whole industry
            on it’s ear.

                            ANDY
            Exactly.

                         JIM
            But won’t that actually help criminals launder
            money?

                         ANDY
            Every advancement has it’s downside for those
            who care to abuse it. The big part is the
            encoding program.

                         JIM
            Who else knows about it?

                         ANDY
            Only a couple of people. But no one knows the
            complete program as intimately as me.

                            JIM
            Christ, Andy.     Are you safe?

                            ANDY
            Safe?

                         JIM
            This is the kind of thing that a guy would get
            a bullet in the back of the head for in a spy
            novel.

                         ANDY
            Perhaps you’ve been reading too many. The
            bottom line here is when the company announces
            this breakthrough, their stock will skyrocket.
            Be ready to invest. I’ll keep you posted.

In the b.g. the man with the Wall Street Journal listens
intently while trying not to be too conspicuous.

                         JIM
            But how will you know since you’re no longer
            there?

                         ANDY
            I spearheaded the project. I have a good time
            line for the completion. Of course it will
            take them longer without me.
                                                            32.
                         JIM
            Can I let anyone else in on the stock?

                         ANDY
            Not about the project, it’s imperative you
            don’t say a word about that. But you can have
            them ready to invest.

                         JIM
            Aren’t we flirting with insider trading?

                         ANDY
            It’s not illegal to invest in the company you
            work for. The trouble comes when you dump it
            before the price falls.

                         JIM
            Why would it drop?

                         ANDY
                   (pauses)
            It wouldn’t. There’s no reason for it.

Jim looks at his watch.

                         JIM
            I’ve got to run.

                        ANDY
            Okay. Go ahead. I have to make a phone call
            anyway. I’ll be in touch.

Jim stands up from the table.

                         JIM
            Okay. Hey just because softball season is over
            doesn’t mean we still can’t go out for a few
            sometime.

                           ANDY
            Sounds good.

                           JIM
            All right.    See you soon.

Jim walks away and exits the café. As he walks by the man
with the paper we SEE the man bury his head in the paper,
trying not to be seen. Andy pulls out a couple of twenty
dollar bills and places them on the table. He then gets up
and walks out of the café too. We FOLLOW Andy out to the
street where he takes out his cell phone and places a call.
                                                          33.
Back inside the café we the man with the paper walks up to
the BARTENDER.

                         MAN WITH THE PAPER
                   (to the bartender)
            Excuse me. Do you happen to know what company
            those two guys who just left work for?

                         BARTENDER
            I think at least one of them is with Apogee.

                          MAN WITH THE PAPER
            Thanks.   Could I borrow a pen?

The bartender hands the man a pen. The man writes Apogee on
the border of the stock prices page. He then moves to hand
the pen back to the bartender but the bartender has already
moved to the other end of the bar, so he places the pen on
the bar.

                         MAN WITH THE PAPER
            Thanks.

The bartender nods in acknowledgement. The man places the
paper under his arm and walks out of the café. Outside on
the street the man walks past Andy who has stopped and
propped himself against a building. As Andy talks on his
cell phone, we SEE several shots of the city street
including pedestrians passing by and a few storefronts. A
cab drives by displaying an advertisement for a costume
store specializing in Halloween costumes. Andy converses on
the phone.

                         ANDY
            Joy? Didn’t anyone tell you I was on the line?
            I’ve been on hold for five minutes.

INTERCUT: Joy, at her salon, speaks on the phone to Andy.

                         JOY
            Oh, so I guess it’s okay for me to wait for
            you, but you shouldn’t have to wait for me?

                         ANDY
            I’m really sorry about the other night.   Did we
            actually confirm dinner?

                         JOY
            Confirm dinner? It wasn’t a business
            appointment, Andy. But yes, you said you would
            be at my place by seven.
                                                             34.
                          ANDY
            Sorry.   How can I make it up to you?

                         JOY
            You owe me big time. I spent two hours trying
            a new recipe I pulled from Bon Appetite.

                          ANDY
            I bet it was good...   Tell me, how can I make
            it up to you?

                          JOY
            Seriously?

                         ANDY
            Yes, let me know.

JOY displays a devilish grin.

                         JOY
            Come to my Halloween party.

                          ANDY
            That’s it?

                          JOY
            Yes.   It’s Saturday night.

                         ANDY
            That doesn’t leave me much time to get a
            costume.

                         JOY
            I’ve got that covered. Just come by on Friday
            around seven, and we’ll try it on for size.

                         ANDY
            You want to clue me in on what it is?

                          JOY
            No.

                         ANDY
            Not even a hint? Is there a theme?

We SEE Joy smiling and Pam standing next to her.

                         JOY
            No, but you’ll be a famous singer.
                                                            35.
                         ANDY
            Okay...

                         JOY
            Pam and I will be part of a trio with you.

                         ANDY
            Oh, like a Tony Orlando and Dawn thing?

Joy struggles to contain her laughter.

                         JOY
            Yes, something like that.

                         ANDY
            Sounds relatively harmless.    Okay, I’m in.   See
            you Friday.

                         JOY
            Okay, bye.

Joy hangs up the telephone.    She giggles as Pam interrupts
her.

                         PAM
            Don’t you think you should have been a little
            more honest with him?

                         JOY
            Oh, he owes me. Besides, he’ll be fine with
            it. It’s just a little party for my friends
            and clients.

                         PAM
            If you say so.


INT. AN FBI CONFERENCE ROOM – THE NEXT MORNING

The special investigative team is seated around a conference
table. Most of members are older, appearing to be between
forty and sixty. Kristen is seated at the far corner of the
table. She is the only female in the room. Her relatively
young age also separates her from the rest of the group.
SEVERAL SHOTS of the team, the papers in front of each
member, and a PowerPoint screen positioned near the head of
the table. The supervisor of the team, GREG WEATHERS,
addresses the group as he turns off the PowerPoint
presentation screen.
                                                         36.
                         GREG WEATHERS
            Our last briefing is in front of you. You’ll
            see that we’ve targeted an offshore gambling
            site. Normally this would be out of our
            jurisdiction, but we’ve been given the case
            because we suspect a high influx of money
            coming from a bank here in Seattle. At this
            time I just need everyone prepped on this file.
            After some more of our initial surveillance
            information comes back, we’ll have a direction
            to proceed... Okay folks, that wraps it up.
            Look over the hard copies I’ve given you.
            Unless something crops up we all have the
            weekend off. Enjoy.

The members of the team stand up. A few form little
clusters and talk with each other. Without speaking to
anyone, Kristen stands up and walks out of the room, pausing
only to nod to Greg who notices her exiting.


INT. KRISTEN’S HOUSE – LATER THE SAME DAY

Kristen’s house is now fully decorated. A few flattened
cardboard boxes lying in a corner serve as the only evidence
that she recently moved in. Kristen picks up a telephone
and dials a number.

INTERCUT: Andy’s living room. Andy sits at a desk and types
on a computer keyboard. His open briefcase sits on a table
next to him. We SEE the computer screen and we determine
that Andy is in the middle of writing a computer program.
The telephone rings but Andy ignores it and continues
writing computer code. He pauses and looks in his briefcase
for the data he copied at his office the day he was fired.
As he pulls out the green memory stick we HEAR Andy’s
answering machine beep. We then HEAR Kristen’s voice
leaving a message.

                          KRISTEN (V.O.)
            Hi, Andy.   It’s Kristen. I just called to say
            hi and...

Andy jumps up and quickly scrambles to answer the telephone.

                         ANDY
            Hi, Kristen. What a nice surprise.

                          KRISTEN (V.O.)
            Hi.   Were you expecting someone else?
                                                           37.
                         ANDY
            No. I was just working and trying to screen
            out useless calls.

                         KRISTEN (V.O.)
            I feel privileged I’m on the accept call list.

                         ANDY
            You’re at the top.

                         KRISTEN (V.O)
            Thanks, but if you’re busy you can call me back
            later.

                         ANDY
            No, I’m glad you called.

Andy sits down on a couch and makes himself comfortable.

                         KRISTEN (V.O.)
            I was wondering if you know of any good places
            to work out? I usually work out at the office
            gym, but I want to stay as far away from there
            as possible tonight.

                         ANDY
            Did you have a bad day?

                         KRISTEN (V.O.)
            No, it’s just been a long week and I want to
            distance myself from work for the weekend.

We SEE Andy pull on his right earlobe.

                         ANDY
                   (clears throat)
            I see. Well, I usually work out at the office
            gym too... Say, it’s still a great day out.
            Are you up for a run? There’s a great loop
            around the area I can show you.

                         KRISTEN (V.O.)
            That’s sounds nice.

                          ANDY
            Great.   How soon do you want to go?

                         KRISTEN (V.O.)
            How soon can you be ready?
                                                           38.
                         ANDY
            Fifteen minutes.

                           KRISTEN (V.O.)
            Perfect.

                          ANDY
            Okay.   We’ll start at your place.   See you in a
            few.

                           KRISTEN (V.O.)
            Okay.   Bye.

                           ANDY
            Bye.


EXT. A PARK NEAR ANDY AND KRISTEN’S HOUSE – LATE AFTERNOON –
SAME DAY.

We SEE Andy and Kristen jogging.

                         KRISTEN
            This is a great place to run.

                         ANDY
            Yeah, it’s nice to have a park so close.   I get
            tired of being stuck in the gym.

                         KRISTEN
            The worst is waiting for people who monopolize
            the equipment by doing a set then sitting at
            the machine for five minutes before doing
            another set.

                         ANDY
            Exactly. I don’t get people that do that.
            They should get up and let someone else in. I
            like to work in stations and keep moving.
            That’s why I can’t stand to work out when it’s
            busy.

                         KRISTEN
            That’s what’s nice about the office gym.    It’s
            never very crowded.


The walkway Andy and Kristen run on splits with one path
leading to the right and the other continuing straight.
                                                            39.
                         ANDY
            Okay, if we go right that will loop us around
            and make it about a ten k. trip. If we go
            straight, it will take us back quicker and it
            will be about two and a half miles.

                         KRISTEN
            Let’s go the distance.

                          ANDY
                   (smiling at Kristen)
            Fine with me.

Andy and Kristen veer off to the right. SEVERAL SHOTS of
the surrounding area as they continue their run. We SEE
Andy and Kristen complete their run in front of Kristen’s
house.

                         ANDY
            You know we ran right by the back of my place,
            and I forgot to show it to you.

                         KRISTEN
            Maybe another time.

                            ANDY
            Absolutely.

                         KRISTEN
            Thanks for the run. Do you have any plans for
            dinner?

                         ANDY
            No... But I promised a friend I’d stop by.      I
            blew her off the other night.

Kristen is disappointed with Andy’s mention of another
female.

                            KRISTEN
            Oh, I see....

                         ANDY
            No, it’s not like that at all. I didn’t mean
            it like that. We’re just friends. She cuts my
            hair. Tell you what, if you’re okay with a
            late dinner, I’d love to take you out.
                                                         40.
                         KRISTEN
            How late are we talking? I need to compensate
            my grumbling stomach for taking it out on this
            run.

                         ANDY
            Eightish? I know a great Japanese place where
            they cut, dice, chop, julienne and cook
            everything right at your table.

                         KRISTEN
            I guess I can wait for that.

                         ANDY
            Great!

Andy gives Kristen a kiss on her cheek. He then looks into
Kristen’s eyes. Kristen smiles and returns the flirtatious
look. Andy then turns and quickly walks away.

                         ANDY
            See you later.

                         KRISTEN
            Okay.


INT. THE ALLURE SALON – LATER – EARLY EVENING

Andy and Joy are standing at the front desk of the salon.

                         ANDY
            So are you through keeping me in suspense?

                         JOY
             We’re going as Diva’s. Pam’s going as Madonna
             and I’m going as Shania.

                         ANDY
             Let’s see... that means I must be Steven
             Tyler.

                         JOY
             No.

                         ANDY
             Then I’ll settle for Jagger.

                         JOY
             I said Diva’s, Andy.
                                                           41.
                         ANDY
            Michael Jackson?

                           JOY
            Cher.
                          ANDY
                    (incredulously)
            Cher?   I don’t think so!

                         JOY
            Oh, come on! Lighten up. It’ll be fun. It’s
            a Halloween party. Everyone will be dressed
            up. Pam is an expert with makeup. She’ll take
            care of that for you.

                         ANDY
            Dare I ask what the outfit looks like?

                         JOY
            It’s not too bad. I think I got the right
            sizes for you. I borrowed it from a friend of
            mine. I just hope the boots fit. They’re
            nines. You’ve got a small foot, so I think
            they’ll work. The skirt isn’t too short and
            with fishnets, you probably won’t have to shave
            your legs.

                         ANDY
            Oh, that’s nice.

                         JOY
            Unless of course you want to go all out and win
            first prize. Come on, let’s try it on.

                           ANDY
            Now?

                           JOY
            Yes.    I need to make sure it fits you.

                         ANDY
            Okay, but I’ve got a dinner date in a half
            hour.

                         JOY
            Really? No problem. I won’t do any makeup
            then. Pam will take care of that tomorrow.
            Come on in the back and try it on, babe.

Andy and Joy move into another room.    Joy then ushers Andy
into a smaller room.
                                                        42.
                         JOY (cont’d)
            It’s all in there. Let me know if you need any
            help, cutie.

                            ANDY
            Funny.

Andy walks into the room.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
                   (loudly back to Joy)
            I can’t believe I’m doing this.

Joy stands outside the room. Andy and Joy speak to each
other through the door separating the two rooms.

                         JOY
            Oh, what’s the big deal? It’s not like you’re
            going to know anyone, well maybe a couple.
            It’s just some of my friends and clients. And
            it’s going to be right here, upstairs. I’ve
            got it all decorated. I’ve got some great
            caterers too. It’ll be fun! Bring your dinner
            date if you want.

                         ANDY
            I don’t think so.

                         JOY
            Let me know if you need a hand in there.

Joy tidies up a counter while she waits for Andy to change.
A clock on the walls reads: 7:30. We SEE a few photographs
of beautiful hair models hanging on the wall of one room of
the salon. Joy calls to Andy.

                         JOY
            How you doing? Do the boots fit?

Andy steps out of the room but we only SEE his back which is
covered by a leather coat adorned with silver chains. We
SEE Joy’s excited reaction.

                         JOY (cont’d)
            Oh my god! You look awesome! With the wig,
            makeup, and some cleavage you’re going to be
            the belle of the ball!

                         ANDY
                   (voice impression of Cher)
            Oh, do you really think so, honey?
                                                            43.
                        JOY
                  (excitedly)
            Wow! That’s great!
                        ANDY
            Okay. You’ve had your fun.   Can I go now?

Joy giggles as we SEE only the back of Andy as he returns to
the room to change. We SEE Andy’s foot, encased in high
heeled thigh high black leather boots, catch on the
doorframe as he moves back into the room. Joy notices this
and comments loudly to Andy.

                         JOY
            If I was you I’d take those boots home and
            practice walking in them. You’ll need to point
            your toes out a little and take small steps.

                         ANDY
                   (from the other room)
            I hope you know this gets me more than even!


INT. A JAPANESE RESTAURANT – A LITTLE LATER

A chef tosses vegetables in the air and cuts them as they
fall. The chef continues to chop a few other items as he
cooks some of the ingredients on the grill in front of Andy
and Kristen.

                         ANDY
            This chef is amazing.

                         KRISTEN
            I wonder if he trained at a culinary or knife
            throwing school.

                         ANDY
            I heard he was a knife thrower for a traveling
            circus, but then an unfortunate incident forced
            him to change careers. He blamed the mishap on
            a loss of balance due to an inner ear infection
            which threw off his aim.

                          KRISTEN
                    (smiling)
            Wow.   I don’t remember reading about that.

                         ANDY
            Yeah, well you wouldn’t have. They kept it out
            of the newspapers... So, do you have any plans
            for the weekend?
                                                           44.
                         KRISTEN
            I’m going down to Eugene to visit my sister.
                         ANDY
            Oh, that’s nice. The friend I saw earlier,
            Joy, she’s having a Halloween party.

We SEE Andy tug on his right earlobe.

                         ANDY
            I thought maybe if you weren’t busy...

                         KRISTEN
            That sounds like fun.

Andy looks surprised at Kristen’s response, afraid that she
might want to go.

                         KRISTEN (cont’d)
            But I promised my sister I’d visit.

                         ANDY
            That’s okay. It’s more important to see her.

                         KRISTEN
            Make sure you take some pictures.

                          ANDY
                    (nervously)
            Sure.

The chef mixes the vegetables and meat he’s prepared on the
grill. Behind the chef Andy and Kristen both SEE two men at
another seating holding hands. Kristen comments on the gay
couple.

                         KRISTEN
            Does that bother you?

                          ANDY
            No.   Was I staring?

                         KRISTEN
            No, I was just curious.

                         ANDY
            How about you?

                         KRISTEN
            Does it bother me? No. Besides, it’s not like
            it’s a matter of choice. We’re all prewired.
                                                              45.
                         ANDY
                   (sarcastically)
            And the psychology degree rears its head.

                           KRISTEN
                     (grinning)
            What?

                         ANDY
            It did sound a little analytical.    So how do
            feel about it?

                           KRISTEN
            I think....

                           ANDY
            Think?

                         KRISTEN
            Excuse me, I feel... I feel that since we only
            go around once in life, we shouldn’t succumb to
            other people’s bigotry. If one is lucky enough
            to find a loving, caring person to trust and
            confide in, to share life with, who am I to
            tell that person who he or she can love?

Andy sits back pensively, digesting Kristen’s comments. He
then takes a small bite of the food in front of him.
Kristen takes a bite of her dinner. They continue to peck
at their food as their conversation continues.

                         ANDY
            What about all the Bible’s rules?

                         KRISTEN
            Wow. We’re going kind of deep here now. Okay,
            here’s what I think. First of all, no one
            knows the Bible is real. Even if it is, how do
            we know some scribe didn’t throw in an
            embellishment or two along the way? And how do
            we know that the language has been interpreted
            correctly? We have enough trouble deciphering
            the intent of the wording of the Constitution
            and that’s only a couple of hundred years old.

                           ANDY
            So for all   we know some of the writings have
            been mixed   up, like how people mix up the
            message in   the telephone game so that the end
            message is   completely different than the
            original.
                                                           46.
                         KRISTEN
            Yeah, I guess so. The bottom line for me is
            being a Christian means treating all people
            with respect, dignity, and acceptance. You
            don’t get to pick and choose. That’s what I
            look for in a person. Who they love is
            inconsequential.

                         ANDY
            That’s a great philosophy.   I wish everyone
            could live that way.

                         KRISTEN
                   (sarcastically at first)
            They don’t? If we did it might lead to a
            little less violence.

                         ANDY
            And acceptance. I’ve seen too many people turn
            on loved ones.

                         KRISTEN
            What do you mean?

                         ANDY
            I mean, it’s crazy to me for example that
            perhaps the family of one or both of those guys
            might not accept him because of his choice.
            How do you stop loving someone because of that?

                         KRISTEN
            I don’t know. But it sounds like you’ve
            experienced it.

                         ANDY
            My sister is gay... which explains why she’s
            such a good baseball player.

Kristen looks surprised.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            I’m kidding... about the baseball part, anyway.


EXT. A HIGHWAY IN WASHINGTON – THE NEXT DAY
We SEE a road sign showing interstate highway number five
with Salem and Eugene written underneath it. We PICK UP a
black SUV speeding in the passing lane. We SEE Kristen
behind the wheel of the SUV. She sings along to the music
playing on the vehicle’s stereo. The SUV moves down the road
and out of site.
                                                            47.
EXT. / INT. THE ALLURE SALON – LATER THAT NIGHT
We MOVE inside the salon to the second floor to the
Halloween party. We SEE Pam dressed as an eighties    style
Madonna. We SEE Joy dressed as Shania Twain. Next     to Joy
we SEE Andy’s black leather jacket sleeve. We HEAR    an older
woman, dressed as an EGYPTIAN PRINCESS, talk loudly   to Joy.

                          EGYPTIAN PRINCESS
            Oh my, Joy.   You ladies look great!   Let me get
            a picture.

   The Egyptian Princess looks through the view finder of
   her camera.

                         EGYPTIAN PRINCESS
            Cher, honey, I need you to turn to me and move
            away from Shania a little.

We HEAR Andy speak to Joy.

                         ANDY
            That’s the second time in the last five minutes
            I’ve been called a lady.

Joy laughs and smiles for the photo.   We HEAR the Egyptian
Princess.

                         EGYPTIAN PRINCESS
            Smile everyone. Look at me, Cher.

Pam and Joy smile for the camera. We then SEE Andy look up
at the camera. With makeup, and long wig, Andy looks very
convincing as Cher. We PAN back and we SEE Andy is wearing
thigh high leather boots, fishnet stockings and a black
leather skirt, similar to one of Cher’s earlier looks. Pam,
Joy, and Andy pose for the photo as the flash goes off. We
HEAR the Egyptian Princess.

                         EGYPTIAN PRINCESS
            Thanks, girls.

                         JOY
            I’ve got news for you, Andy. That woman had no
            idea that you’re a guy. In fact, I’d bet half
            the people here have no clue.

The second floor of the salon is one big open space. We SEE
SEVERAL SHOTS of the low lit room, its decorations, a table
of food, and a bartender pouring drinks. We SEE several
people dressed in various costumes.
                                                            48.
We SEE a bride and groom, a woman dressed as Sheena, and
some other people dressed as: Batman, Laurel and Hardy, a
doctor, a nurse, a beauty queen, a biker, and Dorothy
holding a fake Toto. A few others wear Mardi-Gras type
masks.

                         ANDY
            Well, with the lights and alcohol....

                         JOY
            Yeah, right. Dorothy thought she was back in
            Oz when I told her. But if I was you I’d watch
            out for the sailor across the room. He’s eying
            someone’s chest and it’s not mine!

We SEE Andy’s realistic cleavage and small breasts.    Andy
tries to pull the top of the costume up to cover his chest.
SEVERAL SHOTS of the partygoers including an older man
dressed as a sailor glancing at Andy and Joy.

                         JOY
            Then again, the woman dressed as Sheena is
            checking you out too.

                         ANDY
            How did I agree to this?

                         JOY
            It’s not east being ogled, is it?

                         ANDY
            Well, given the context....

We HEAR Shania Twain’s, I Feel Like A Woman pour through the
sound system. We SEE two younger, good looking men, one
dressed as a CONSTRUCTION WORKER and the other as a DOCTOR,
walk up to Joy and Andy.

                         DOCTOR
            I believe we have an appointment to dance.

                         JOY
            Who are you asking?

                         DOCTOR
            It looks like a perfect match, two and two.

                         ANDY
                   (impersonating Cher’s voice)
            Oh, thanks honey, but I really can’t.
                                                            49.
                         JOY
            Sure we can! It’s my song!

Joy pushes Andy toward the doctor, causing him to stumble
into the doctor’s arms. The doctor steadies Andy. Joy
walks over to the construction worker, then beckons Andy.
We SEE Andy, his feet frozen to the floor.

                         JOY (cont’d)
            Come on, Andrea!

Andy smiles reluctantly and then walks out to dance with the
doctor, Joy, and the construction worker. As they dance,
Andy tries his best to move like a woman. Some of the other
partygoers join them on the dance floor.


INT. ANDY’S BEDROOM – THE NEXT MORNING

The boots Andy wore the previous night lie at the end of the
bed. We SEE Andy’s feet, still encased in the fishnet
stockings, on his bed. We MOVE and FIND two breast forms on
his bed. We SEE Andy passed out in bed. He is still wearing
some of his costume. The rumpled bed covers conceals his
thighs and midsection. We HEAR a telephone ring. We SEE a
clock indicating ten a.m. The phone rings a few times and
Andy slowly wakes up. He turns over and reaches for the
ringing cordless telephone. We SEE his hand, with long
fake, red fingernails pick up the telephone.

                           ANDY
                     (raspy)
            Hello.

                             KRISTEN (V.O.)
            Andy?

Andy snaps out of his semi—sleep state.

                             ANDY
            Kristen!   Hi!

                         KRISTEN (V.O.)
            Did I wake you?

Andy looks himself over and realizes he’s still wearing half
of his costume. He stands to look in a mirror and sees that
he has smeared makeup covering his eyes. He buries his face
in his hand.
                                                        50.
                         ANDY
            No, I’m awake. I just haven’t talked to anyone
            yet.

Andy moves into the bathroom and turns on the bathroom
faucet and shower.

                           ANDY (cont’d)
            How are you?

                         KRISTEN (V.O.)
            I’m fine. I’m on my way back from my sister’s.
            I thought you might like to go for a run later.

                          ANDY
            Sure.   Just say when.


INT. A DINER – THE SAME MORNING

Jim talks with three other people.

                         JIM
            Look, I’m telling you, it’s an easy way to make
            at least forty percent in one day!


EXT. / INT. THE ALLURE SALON – LATER THE SAME DAY

Andy’s car pulls in the salon’s parking lot.   There are only
two cars in the lot.

                          ANDY
            Damn!   It’s Sunday.   They’re closed!

Andy gets out of his car. Walking with his hands in his
coat pocket, he strolls up to the front door. He peers in
the door. He then takes his hands out of his pocket and
places them on the door to reduce the glare so he can get a
better look inside the salon. He is still wearing the fake
red fingernails. As Andy peers into the salon he notices
Pam walk into his view. She walks into another part of the
salon and out of Andy’s view. We SEE and HEAR Andy rap on
the door. In the b.g. a woman walks her child in a
stroller. She slows down and looks at Andy. Pam reappears
in Andy’s view. She takes a long look at the door before
recognizing Andy. She then walks toward the door. She then
stops and puts up one finger indicating she’ll be right
back. She then moves out of sight but quickly returns with
a set of keys dangling in her hand. Pam unlocks the door
and greets Andy.
                                                           51.
                         PAM
            Andy... this is a surprise.

                         ANDY
            I know you’re closed, but can I come in?

                         PAM
            Sure, I guess.

As Andy moves in he holds up his fingers for Pam to see.

                         PAM
                   (laughing)
            Oh, my. I guess you’re not going to church
            with that color on. Come on in and I’ll get
            them off for you.

                          ANDY
            Thanks.

Andy and Pam walk into the salon.   Pam waves Andy over to a
nail station table.

                         PAM
            Have a seat here.    I’ll be right with you.

                          ANDY
            Okay.   But if you’re busy, I can come back.

                         PAM
            No. I was just going over what supplies I need
            to order. Good thing I was here. You’d have a
            tough time hiding those talons. Your hair
            looks great.

Andy’s hair is noticeably longer. Pam sits down on the
other side of the table opposite Andy.

                         PAM (cont’d)
            When I was about ten I didn’t know you needed
            polish remover to take polish off. My sister
            found me trying to scrub it off in the bathroom
            sink. She thought it was hilarious that I got
            caught wearing her polish. My mom told me boys
            don’t wear nail polish. I think she sent me
            outside to play football after that... Anyway,
            I thought it looked pretty. But I learned from
            that point on, whatever goes on must come off.
            And I always made sure I had what I needed so I
            wouldn’t get caught again.
                                                           52.
Pam places Andy’s hands in some soaking solution.

                         ANDY
            So you knew at age ten?

                         PAM
            Earlier. I always felt more comfortable doing
            what’s considered female things.

Pam works on removing Andy’s fingernails.

                         PAM (cont’d)
            Lets’ get these off.

Andy closes his eyes and rolls his head around.

                         PAM (cont’d)
            A little hung over this morning?

                         ANDY
            My head feels like it was hit with a brick.

                         PAM
            It was a pretty wild time.

                         ANDY
            It was certainly a different experience from
            the other side so to speak.

                         PAM
                   (chuckles)
            Tell me about it.

Andy laughs with Pam as she pulls the nails off Andy’s
fingers.

                         ANDY
            Is this how you started?

                         PAM
                   (laughing)
            If you’re worried that all of a sudden you’re
            going to want to grow breasts, don’t worry –
            you’re safe. That’s not how it works... For
            me, I’ve always been a female. I was just born
            with a few extra parts. But there are many
            different reasons why people crossdress. Of
            course the focus is always on men because of
            our strict societal protocols. We don’t want
            to blur anything.
                         (more)
                                                          53.
                         PAM (cont’d)
            Women are free to wear men’s styles without
            anyone thinking twice. It’s their prerogative.
            But men can’t even wear certain “fem” colors.
            And if they wear anything considered female, it
            becomes “weird”. However, some men like to
            crossdress because it excites them sexually to
            wear anything from heels to lingerie. Some are
            gay, and they might do it for their partners,
            but most aren’t. Some just enjoy it. Just
            like a woman enjoys soft, sexy things. Also,
            some do it solely for the money. They just
            happen to make good looking women. They use
            their assets and skills to perform at clubs
            etc... and make really good money, but it’s not
            a lifestyle. While they may be a little
            exhibitionistic, when the show’s over they put
            away the clothes. You’d never know what they
            do or that they look better in a dress than
            most women... I hate to tell you this but you
            fit that category. With some work, you could
            easily pass for a woman, not that you want to.
            I was just trying to make a point.

                         ANDY
            Point taken. So how did you get so, so,
            beautiful? I mean you have a flawless face and
            breasts...

                         PAM
            I’ve been blessed with my mom’s skin I guess.
            But I’ve also had hormone therapy and gender
            counseling. For others, it’s really much
            harder. They need voice lessons etc...

                         ANDY (MORE)
            Do you still have...

We SEE Andy look down.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            I’m sorry that was too personal. I had no
            right to ask... I mean you wouldn’t ask me how
            big my....

                         PAM
            Your bank account is? It’s okay. I’m saving
            my money for the final surgery. It’s an
            expensive procedure. I’m on my last leg so to
            speak.
                                                          54.
Andy and Pam both laugh at her last comment.

                         ANDY
            This may sound silly, but what do you do about
            your driver’s license or other i.d.?

                         PAM
            My license shows me as I am. So does my
            cosmetology license. But I have other friends
            who have purchased fake i.d.’s with their alter
            ego’s picture on them so they can switch back
            and forth.

                            ANDY
            Really?

                         PAM
            Sure. There are guys down on Stewart Street in
            Pike Place Market that will make one up in a
            couple of days, and you can’t tell them from
            the real thing.

                          ANDY
            I guess with scanners and digital printers it’s
            not too hard.

Pam wipes Andy’s fingers.

                           PAM
            There.    All gone.

                           ANDY
            Thanks.    You really saved me.

                            PAM
            No problem.     I’m glad I could help.


EXT. A STREET NEAR ANDY’S HOUSE – DAY

Kristen and Andy jog down a street.

                         ANDY
            If you want to stop early, I’ll show you my
            house.

                            KRISTEN
            Sure.

Andy and Kristen run around a corner and head down the
street where Andy lives.
                                                          55.
They slow down and stop in front of Andy’s house. We SEE
the front of Andy’s house and its perfectly landscaped front
yard.

                           ANDY
            Here we are.    Come on in.

                         KRISTEN
            This is very nice. Did you do the landscaping?

                         ANDY
            It was my design.

Andy and Kristen enter Andy’s house. MOVE with Andy and
Kristen as Andy gives Kristen a quick tour of the first
floor. We SEE one area with a state of the art computer
situated on a large office desk. Several papers are
scattered on the floor by the desk and next to Andy’s open
briefcase. As Andy and Kristen move through the house we
SEE a framed photograph of Andy and Preston Burkett. The
photograph shows Andy receiving an award from Burkett. As
Andy and Kristen move past the photo Andy realizes it is
still hanging on the wall. With Kristen’s back to him, Andy
quickly pulls down the photograph and slides it on the floor
into an adjoining bathroom.

                         KRISTEN
            This is a great place, Andy.   Could I use your
            bathroom, please?

                         ANDY
            Yeah, sure. But the one downstairs has a lot
            of stuff scattered about. I’ll show you to the
            upstairs and you can take your pick of three.

                           KRISTEN
            Okay.

As Kristen and Andy make their way upstairs Kristen passes
the place on the wall where the photograph no longer hangs.
The faded color of the walls surrounding the missing
photograph makes it obvious that something was recently
hanging in that spot.

                         KRISTEN (cont’d)
            Looks like I’m not the only one in need of a
            frame.

Andy ignores Kristen and they move upstairs to the second
floor.
                                                            56.
                         ANDY
            The master bath is off of my room.

Andy leads Kristen to the room and into it. As Andy steps
into the room he SEES two bags lying on the floor that
contain his Halloween costume. We can make out the tops of
the boots peeking out one of the bags. Kristen enters the
room and looks around. Andy ushers her toward the bathroom.
We SEE Andy pull on his right earlobe as he mentions the two
bags on the floor.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            Oh, I forgot to drop off my dry cleaning.

Kristen does not notice the bags as she enters the bathroom.

                         KRISTEN
            I have some things I need to drop off.   I’ll be
            happy to take yours too.

                         ANDY
            Thanks, but that’s not necessary.

While Kristen is in the bathroom Andy scurries over to the
bags, scoop them up, and throws them in a walk-in closet.
He then pulls a few shirts off their hangers and tosses them
on the over the bags. He exits the closest and speaks to
Kristen through the bathroom door.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            I’m going downstairs to get us something cold
            to drink.

                          KRISTEN
            Okay.   I’ll meet you in the kitchen.

Andy exits the room and heads downstairs to the kitchen.
Kristen stands in the luxurious bathroom which includes a
large, tiled bathtub. She checks her face in a mirror then
exits the bathroom, walks downstairs and enters the kitchen.
Andy hands her a tall glass filled with Gatorade.

                         ANDY
            Starfruit Gatorade okay?

                          KRISTEN
            Love it.   Your house is beautiful.

                         ANDY
            Thanks. Sometimes I think it’s too much of a
            bachelor’s pad.
                                                              57.
                         KRISTEN
            When I think of a bachelor’s pad I picture a
            one bedroom studio with sports posters on the
            walls and lava lamps on the floor.

                         ANDY
            I guess I meant it could use a little more
            style or grace.

                         KRISTEN
            What you really mean is a woman’s touch.

                         ANDY
            Well, maybe... So I guess since you went to see
            your sister, you weren’t called in to crack any
            big case over the weekend?

                         KRISTEN
            Right. We just had ongoing surveillance.     We
            have other people doing that.

                         ANDY
            Surveillance? How do I know I’m not under
            surveillance now?

                         KRISTEN
                   (deadpan)
            You don’t.

Andy reacts with surprise to Kristen’s seriousness. We then
SEE Kristen smile. She moves closer to Andy and looks
longingly in his eyes.

                         KRISTEN (cont’d)
            Actually, I’ve had you on my private radar for
            quite some time.

   Andy places his arms around Kristen.

                         ANDY
            Really?

Andy releases his hug and takes Kristen’s hands.   He looks
her over from head to toe.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            Do you have one of those tiny cameras hidden
            on you?

Andy moves in to kiss Kristen.
                                                         58.
                          KRISTEN
            Maybe.

                           ANDY
            Good.    I hope this makes a nice shot.

Andy places a gentle kiss on Kristen’s lips. We then SEE
them embrace and kiss each other passionately. We PULL BACK
and we SEE the sunlight pouring in through the windows,
creating a silhouette of Andy and Kristen as they continue
to kiss.

DREAM SEQUENCE:

Preston Burkett stands at a podium speaking at a press
conference. Reporters and photographers huddle around
Burkett. ANOTHER ANGLE and we SEE the scene through a large
screen television. A scroll moves across the bottom of the
screen stating: Apogee Tech., Inc. press conference. In the
upper right corner of the screen we SEE the stock symbol,
ApTI, and the number forty-five next to it. We SEE the
number change to forty-seven. Burkett addresses the
audience.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
            I’d like to introduce the person who is
            primarily responsible for this remarkable
            innovation, Andrew Crandell.

We HEAR clapping and we SEE the stock ticker price change
rapidly moving from fifty-one through the sixties and
seventies and up over one hundred. Burkett looks about the
room in anticipation of Andy’s arrival. No one steps up to
the podium and Burkett chuckles.

                         PRESTON BURKETT (cont’d)
            Oh, that’s right. I guess he’s missing out on
            this!

Burkett doubles over laughing.   He speaks through his
nonstop laughter.

                         PRESTON BURKETT (cont’d)
            He could have made a lot of dough on this one!
            Ha, ha!

CLOSE SHOT of Andy’s face half buried in a pillow. We SEE
his eyes open wide. He quickly sits up and we SEE he is in
his bedroom. Andy rubs his face, trying to shake off his
dream.
                                                                  59.
                             ANDY
                      (mumbling)
               That bastard.

We SEE Kristen lying in bed next to Andy.        She begins to
wake up.

                               KRISTEN
               Are you okay?

                            ANDY
               Yeah, I’m fine.

Andy closes his eyes and rubs his forehead.

                            ANDY (cont’d)
               Sorry to wake you. Go back to sleep.      I’m just
               going to get a glass of water.

In another room Andy puts down a glass of water and plops
down on a couch. He grabs a remote control and flicks on
the television. He turns down the volume and channel surfs.
He stops on an old black and white silent movie and begins
watching it.

INSERT: A SCENE FROM THE MOVIE ON THE TELEVISION

We SEE a male and a woman in a bedroom. We SEE the
subtitles on the bottom of the screen as the male says: Oh,
I could never do that. The woman replies: Of course you
can. We SEE another scene and we SEE the actor plucking his
eyebrows. Behind the actor we SEE a dress on a mannequin.

BACK ON ANDY

Andy closes his eyes and rubs his forehead. He then opens
his eyes and cocks his head as if an idea just came to him.
He continues to view the movie more intently.

INT. / EXT. ANDY’S CAR AS HE DRIVES TO THE ALLURE SALON –
DAY

   Andy talks on his cell phone.         He listens to Jennifer
   through an ear piece.

                            ANDY
               I know it’s been a long time, Jen. I’m sorry I
               haven’t called. I can’t talk now but I promise
               to call soon. Right now I just need to know if
               you’re still in charge of getting temps?
                                                         60.
Andy removes his ear piece and presses a button which
switches the conversation to a hands free speaker. We HEAR
Jennifer reply to Andy’s question.

                         JENNIFER (V.O)
            Yes. The biggest problem I have is getting
            coverage for Burkett’s secretary. She’s always
            out. Not that I blame her. I dread putting
            someone in to replace her because the poor soul
            has to deal with that lecherous creep.

                         ANDY
            That may be too much info for me... but maybe
            not. I have to go, but thanks. If anyone
            asks, I called to ask you to lunch and I said
            I’d set a date for later. Okay?

                          JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Sure, Andy.   Take care of yourself.

                           ANDY
            You too.    Bye.

Andy presses a button to end the call just as he pulls into
the Allure salon parking lot. He enters the salon holding
the two bags containing his Halloween costume. Joy greets
him.

                         JOY
             Well, hello, Andy. Oh, you’ve got your
             costume! I was beginning to think you wanted
             to keep it.

Andy greets Joy with a kiss on the cheek.

                         ANDY
            You’re not going to let this go, are you dear?

                          JOY
            Sometime.   How’ve you been?

                          ANDY
            I’m good.   How’s things with you?

                          JOY
            Busy.   Your hair’s growing fast.

                         ANDY
             I guess... I’ll catch up with you later.
             Right now I need to see Pam. Is she in?
                                                        61.
                         JOY
             She’s out back. If you want a cut, I’ll have
             time in just a minute.

                         ANDY
             No, that’s okay.    Is she with anyone?

                         JOY
             I don’t think so.

                         ANDY
             Thanks.

Andy walks past Joy and into another room. A perplexed look
occupies Joy’s face as she watches Andy leave the room.
CLOSE SHOT of Pam.

                         PAM
                   (loudly)
            Are you serious?

   Andy tries to hush Pam.

                         ANDY
            Yes.

                         PAM
            And why do you want to do this?

                         ANDY
            I can’t tell you that. I just need to know if
            you’ll help... and that it’s doable.

                         PAM
            Oh, I told you before, it’s doable.

                         ANDY
            Then here’s the deal. I’ll give you ten
            thousand in cash up front. Then after
            everything’s done, I’ll set you up with
            another fifty thousand in an offshore account.

                         PAM
            Get out of here!

                         ANDY
            I’m not kidding. But there’s a couple of
            absolute rules. First, no one else knows.   Not
            even Joy. It’s imperative. Okay?
                                                                 62.
                         PAM
            For that kind of money this girl can keep her
            mouth shut. No problem.

                         ANDY
            The other thing is you’ll have to move.

                            PAM
            Move?

                            ANDY
            Yes.

                         PAM
            But how can I help if I’m not here?

                            ANDY
            I mean later.     Okay?

                         PAM
            Okay, but is this il... never mind.

                         ANDY
            All right. If Joy’s busy, let’s get started.
            What do I need to do?

                         PAM
            I think you’re going to be a little
            overwhelmed.

                            ANDY
            I’m ready.

                         PAM
            Maybe I should make you a list.

                         ANDY
            That’s not necessary.

                         PAM
            Okay then, big guy.       Here’s what you’re going
            to need to do.

From a distance and out of earshot we SEE Pam point to one
of her fingers, then another as she lists Andy’s
instructions.

ANOTHER ANGLE as Andy and Pam continue their conversation.
                                                        63.
                         PAM (cont’d)
            Start with that. Joy is off tomorrow, so come
            in about ten, okay?

                         ANDY
            Sure.


INT. A DRUGSTORE – LATER THE SAME DAY

Andy waits in line at a check out counter. We SEE some of
the items he is purchasing including a Venus ladies razor,
shaving gel, moisturizer, hand cream, and bath oil. A
TEENAGE CHECK OUT GIRL begins scanning the items. After
taking note of a few of the items the checkout girl eyes
Andy curiously. She continues to scan the remaining items.
Andy’s notices the girl’s look. He quickly finds a rack of
condoms near the checkout. He looks at an OLDER WOMAN in
line behind him. He smiles at the woman and puts up one
finger, imploring for her patience. He then moves over to
the condom section and grabs the first package within reach.
He brings them over to the check out counter. The older
woman gives a huff of disgust. Andy pretends to scratch off
a couple of items from the list he holds.

                         ANDY
                   (to the check out girl)
            Add these too, please.

                         CHECK OUT GIRL
            Anything else?

                         ANDY
            No, thank you.

Andy pays cash, helps the girl bag the items, then grabs the
bags and walks out of the store.


EXT. A HIGHWAY – DAY

Andy’s car speeds down the highway. His car travels under a
sign that reads: Interstate 5 – South – Salem.


EXT. / INT. A CELLULAR PHONE STORE – EARLY EVENING- DUSK

Andy’s car pulls in the lot of the cellular phone
store. We PICK UP Andy inside the store at the counter
speaking with a salesperson.
                                                        64.
                        ANDY
            Hi. I need a throw away cellular phone with a
            good range.

                          SALESPERSON
            Okay.   I can show you a few.

                         ANDY
            Those would be untraceable, right?

                         SALESPERSON
            Yes. And we don’t keep sales records if you
            pay with cash.

                          ANDY
            Good.   I’m going to need four or five.

                         SALESPERSON
            Let me show you your options.


EXT. A COMPUTER STORE – A LITTLE LATER

ANDY walks out of the store toting a couple of bags large
enough to hold a lap top and a few other items.


EXT. A HIGHWAY – THE SAME NIGHT

A sign with a mileage marker indicates Seattle is thirty
miles away. Andy travels in his car and talks on his cell
phone. We HEAR Kristen’s voice on her answering machine.
At the beep, Andy leaves her a message. As he speaks we SEE
him tug on his right earlobe.

                         ANDY
            Hi, it’s Andy. Just wanted to let you know I
            have to work late tonight. I’ll try you
            tomorrow... Dinner maybe? Bye.


INT. ANDY’S HOUSE – NIGHT

Andy is seated in front of his computer. Next to the
computer is his newly purchased Apple Powerbook.
Andy’s POV as he views the computer screen. Andy has his
on-line bank statement displayed on the screen. The
checking account balance reads: $204,128.42. Andy scrolls
back to his October statement and we see a deposit for
$234,569.41. Andy logs off and shuts down the computer. He
then moves to the Apple Powerbook.
                                                          65.
Andy’s home page, the USA Today, pops up on the screen.
Andy types on the Powerbook. We SEE a web page titled,
Seattle Real Estate Consortium. A dialogue box prompts Andy
to type in the criteria he is searching for. Andy types,
security, privacy and amenities into the box. Underneath
the box Andy selects the two thousand plus option in the
monthly price range choices. He hits the enter button and a
few thumbnail pictures of rental properties matching his
criteria pop up on the screen. Andy takes a piece of scrap
paper and writes down a few of the options then he selects
the print application option. We then SEE Andy pick up a
software box containing the latest version of Cosmopolitan
Makeover. Andy loads the computer program onto the
Powerbook and launches it. He then places a headshot photo
of himself into the program. Using the program he proceeds
to place several women’s wigs on his headshot. He tries
several before pausing on a long, curly dark brown choice.
He writes the selection down on another piece of scrap
paper. We then SEE Andy reach into his briefcase and pull
out the green memory stick he copied information onto the
day he left his office. He hits a few keystrokes and on the
screen we SEE the prompt: downloading Preeminent Defender,
please wait. ANOTHER ANGLE as Andy continues to work on the
Powerbook. Andy continues to work on the Preeminent
Defender program into the night and early morning hours of
the next day.


INT. THE ALLURE SALON - DAY

Andy is seated in a chair in one of the rooms located in the
back of the salon.

                         ANDY
            Remember when you said you knew people who
            could make i.d.’s?

We SEE Andy is talking to Pam.

                         PAM
            You are not anywhere near ready for that, dear.
            How’d you make out with the wig choice?

Next to Andy and Pam a computer is running the same
Cosmopolitan Makeover program Andy used at his house.

                         ANDY
            I’ll show you.

Andy calls up the long, curly choice he selected at home.
                                                         66.
                         PAM
            That might do for now, but I think you’re going
            to need a more happening, realistic choice.
            Your own hair would be best, but it needs a
            little more length. We might want to go with
            extensions. You’re also going to need
            some high quality breast forms, probably a few
            types of shapewear, and another item for...
            concealment purposes.

                           ANDY
            Okay.

                         PAM
            This is going to get quite expensive.

                         ANDY
            The payoff will be worth it.

                           PAM
            Payoff?

                         ANDY
                   (ignoring Pam’s comment)
            I need you to order all the stuff you just
            mentioned and send it to your place.

                         PAM
            I suppose I can do that. But you know that’s
            just the beginning, right?

Andy reaches into the briefcase he carried into the salon.
He pulls out several large denomination bills neatly bundled
in paper currency wrappers. He forms one stack out of the
money and he hands it to Pam.

                         ANDY
            Here’s the initial ten thousand I promised.
            There’s also some extra to cover the orders.

Pam takes the money. She is astounded.     She flips through
the pile in amazement.

                           PAM
            Wow.    I guess you are for real.

                          ANDY
I might need you to do a couple of other favors for which
I’ll compensate you more.
                                                         67.
                         PAM
            Sure. I can make suggestions, but you’re going
            to have to pick out your own clothes.

                         ANDY
            I planned on doing that.

                         PAM
            Your safest bet is to stick to ordering from
            the web or from catalogs. Not everyone is okay
            with this kind of thing you know. The skirt
            for your costume was a four so I’d stick with
            that size to start. Whatever you’re eating,
            eat less of it. You can be like every woman on
            the planet and start thinking you need to lose
            a few pounds. And you can start buying shoes
            just because they’re sexy or cute regardless if
            they are comfortable or not.

PAM looks at a few different shades of foundation. She then
looks at Andy’s face trying to see which shade would be the
best match.

                         PAM (cont’d)
            You know, before you start ordering everything
            in sight and wasting a lot of money, you need
            to find a style, a look that works for you.

Pam picks up a handful of women’s magazines.   As she plops
them in Andy’s lap.

                         PAM (cont’d)
            These should help. Look through them and start
            studying.

                         ANDY
            Studying?

                         PAM
            Yes. Poses, looks, styles. If this is going
            to work you have to be completely immersed and
            prepared. Like you would be for one of your
            software product developments... You know, the
            catalog clothes will be fine, but I can also
            send you to my friend’s store. She’s got some
            fabulous pieces that you should have. I’ll call
            her and let her know you’ll be stopping in.

Pam picks up a bag from the floor and pulls out a pair of
very high heel pumps.
                                                          68.
                         PAM (cont’d)
            What size shoe do you wear?

                         ANDY
            Seven and a half.

Pam hands Andy the shoes.

                         PAM
            These are nines. They’re a little small for
            me, but they should be okay for you.

                         ANDY
            The heels are quite high.

                         PAM
            That’s right. Master these and you’ll be fine
            with anything. Start wearing them around the
            house all the time, or as much as you can.
            We’ll start with makeup training at my place
            tomorrow night.


INT. ANDY’S HOUSE – NIGHT

Andy stands in the kitchen looking over one of the several
magazines strewn all over the kitchen table and counters.
We PAN DOWN and SEE Andy is wearing the pumps Pam gave him.
Andy closes the magazine he’s been viewing. He turns and
walks, managing fairly well in the heels, into a bathroom.
He starts the shower. He then bends down and removes his
shoes the way a woman typically does by bending his leg at
the knee and pushing his ankle out away from his body. He
takes in a deep breath. He steps into the shower and we SEE
him begin to shave his legs.


EXT. THE STREETS NEAR ANDY’S HOUSE – THE NEXT DAY

Kristen, dressed in shorts and a tee shirt, runs next to
Andy who is dressed in long running pants and a long sleeved
shirt. SEVERAL SHOTS as we see them run together. They
both of breath hard and perspire.

                         KRISTEN
            Aren’t you hot?

                            ANDY
            A little.

Andy and Kristen continue their run.
                                                             69.
A SERIES OF SHOTS

A) Andy and Kristen enjoying a night at a play.

B) Andy and Kristen having a romantic dinner at a
   restaurant. A waitress approaches their table. Andy
   puts his hands up in the air indicating he is finished,
   and he signals the waitress to take his dish away. The
   waitress picks up Andy’s dinner plate, and we SEE that
   half of his dinner remains on the plate.

C) Andy and Kristen strolling through a science museum.
   We SEE them playing with some of the interactive
   displays in the physical science section of the museum.

D) Kristen in Andy’s car in front of her house. Andy hands
   her a picture frame with a bow around it. Kristen smiles
   and kisses Andy.

E) Andy and Kristen enjoying a football game in California.
   Kristen is wearing shorts, but Andy is wearing long
   pants.

F) Andy and Kristen at an upscale restaurant. Kristen
   pops some liquid nitrogen infused food into her mouth.
   She then exhales out her mouth creating a white puff of
   fog. Andy laughs and begins to try his food.

G) Andy and Kristen in their hotel room at night after
   the game. Kristen and Andy begin to kiss. Kristen
   places her hands under Andy’s shirt and begins to remove
   it. Andy stops Kristen and pulls away. Andy and Kristen
   talk M.O.S. We SEE Andy tug on his right earlobe as he
   continues to talk with Kristen.


EXT. / INT. A TRENDY WOMEN’S CLOTHING STORE – LATE MORNING

Andy walks into the store carrying a medium size shopping
bag that appears to be half full. Andy looks around the
store. In the b.g. we SEE a woman customer milling about.
It appears that Andy and the woman customer are the only
people in the store. Andy picks up a pair of shoes and
examines them. O.S. we HEAR a voice, which belongs to the
store’s owner, ALEESHA.

                         ALEESHA
                   (sternly)
            Halloween has been over for quite some time.
                                                          70.
A startled Andy searches for the person who owns the voice.
We SEE Aleesha looking suspiciously at Andy. She then
smiles warmly and extends her hand to Andy.

                            ALEESHA (cont’d)
            Good morning.     I’m Aleesha. I’m betting you’re
            Andy.

                            ANDY
            Yes, but....

                         ALEESHA
            Pam said to expect you.

Andy nods his head in acknowledgement.

                         ALEESHA
            Let’s get started. I’ll make some suggestions
            and you can try them on and see what you think.

Andy’s eyes grow big. He rolls his eyes and tosses his head
as he tries to get Aleesha to realize there is another
customer in the store within earshot. Ignoring Andy’s
embarrassment, Aleesha turns and glances at the other
customer who is oblivious to Andy and Aleesha’s
conversation.

                         ALEESHA (cont’d)
            Oh, don’t worry about that. I’ll take care of
            her.

A few minutes later Andy reluctantly emerges from a dressing
room wearing one of the outfits Aleesha has selected. Andy
is also wearing some body shaping undergarments which give
him a pronounced womanly figure.

                         ALEESHA
            That looks awesome on you!

Aleesha treats Andy as she would any other customer. She
moves over to Andy for a closer inspection of the fit of the
clothes. Andy then disappears into the dressing room.
SEVERAL SHOTS as Andy emerges from the dressing room
modeling different outfits for Aleesha. As he progresses
through each change he gradually becomes more at ease to the
point where we see him strut out like a model to Aleesha’s
approval. Andy exits the store carrying several packages
filled with his purchases.
                                                          71.
EXT. SEATAC (SEATTLE, WASHINGTON) AIRPORT – ESTABLISHING –
NIGHT

Andy pulls away from an airport rental car lot driving a
rental car. We SEE Andy talking on one of the disposable
cellular telephones he previously purchased.

                         ANDY
            Hi, Kristen. It’s Andy. I was hoping to catch
            you...
                   (tugging on his right earlobe)
            I just wanted to say I’m going to be very busy
            with work the next few days, in and out of
            town, so I’m not sure if we’ll be able to get
            together much.

We SEE Andy take his hand away from his right ear.

                          ANDY (cont’d)
            I miss you.   Sorry.

Andy presses a button to end the call. He then tosses the
phone on the passenger seat and stares at the road ahead.


INT. A SHOPPING MALL IN SEATTLE – DAY

We PICK UP Andy walking into the mall. Christmas
decorations adorn the stores. Andy enters a women’s
clothing store. A SALESLADY immediately approaches Andy.

                          SALESLADY
            Hello.   Shopping for a Christmas present or
            gift?

                         ANDY
            Hi, oh no – not really.

Andy peruses a rack of clothes.   The saleslady continues to
talk.

                         SALESLADY
            Is there something I can help you with?

                         ANDY
            I’m just looking right now, thanks.

The saleslady displays a sneering smile. She quickly looks
Andy up, down and back up, pausing on Andy’s too perfectly
groomed eyebrows.
                                                         72.
                          SALESLADY
            Okay.

The saleslady walks to the back of the store and speaks
quietly to a co-worker. The co-worker listens then covertly
glances over at Andy. The two women continue their
conversation which is apparently about Andy. This increases
Andy’s already heightened uneasiness and he quickly exits
the store.


INT. ANDY’S HOUSE – DAY

Through the front window of Andy’s house we SEE a UPS truck
slow down and stop in front of Andy’s house. A few seconds
later we HEAR the doorbell of Andy’s house ring. Andy,
dressed in shorts, appears from another room. Andy peeks
out the window and notices the UPS truck. He walks to the
door and opens it. Andy’s POV as he focuses on a woman UPS
TRUCK DRIVER holding a package. The UPS driver checks the
address on the package and without immediately looking up,
she greets Andy.

                         UPS DRIVER
            Hi, I’ve got a package for A. Crandell.

                          ANDY
            That’s me.

The UPS driver’s POV. She looks up and Andy’s smooth,
hairless legs catch her attention. She also spots a piece
of tissue paper on his shin with blood on it from a razor
nick. The driver looks at the package. We SEE the return
label of a women’s clothing store. The woman hastily hands
Andy the package. Andy notices the curious look the driver
has given him and he looks down at his legs and spots the
red stained tissue paper. He quickly takes the package from
the driver.

                         UPS DRIVER
            Sign here, please.

   Andy quickly signs for the package.

                          ANDY
            Thank you.

                         UPS DRIVER
                   (walking away)
            You’re welcome. Have a nice day.
                                                             73.
Andy moves inside with the package and breathes a sigh of
relief.


EXT. A SEATTLE REAL ESTATE OFFICE – NIGHT

Andy’s rental car pulls up to the closed office. He stops
and gets out of the car and drops a large envelope in the
office mail/drop box.


INT. PAM’S HOUSE – NIGHT

CLOSE UP of Andy’s eye. We PULL back to reveal more of his
eyelid and eyebrow. We SEE his eye is expertly painted with
eye shadow and liner. We notice Andy’s eyebrows have a
thinner, slightly more feminine shape. We SEE the end of a
mascara wand. The wand deftly coats Andy’s eyelash with
mascara. We PULL BACK further to reveal Andy’s hand at the
end of the wand. We SEE Andy’s face is completely made up
and framed by a long wig. He looks quite pretty and
convincingly female. We SEE Andy is fully dressed as a
female with all the right shapes and curves. We SEE an
array of cosmetics on a counter. In the b.g. we SEE a
digital camera. We HEAR Pam’s voice O.S.

                         PAM
            It’s amazing what a quick study you are.

                           ANDY
            Thanks.

Andy’s voice is the one noticeable giveaway that he is not
female.

                         PAM
            We’re moving to the point of no return here,
            you know.

                          ANDY
            I know.   Right on schedule.

                         PAM
            Let’s see you walk.

Andy stands up and walks around like a runway model.

                         PAM (cont’d)
            I think you’ve got it down too good.   Take it
            down a few notches.
                         (more)
                                                         74.
                         PAM (cont’d)
            Don’t exaggerate so much. Ninety-eight percent
            of women don’t walk like that. That’s a drag
            queen version you’ve got going. You need to be
            more natural. Believe me with those legs
            you’ll get enough looks without drawing
            attention to yourself by being flamboyant. The
            idea is to blend.

                            ANDY
            You’re right.

                         PAM
            I think we have to get your voice down. If you
            sound good everything else will fall into
            place. Practice what we talked about speaking
            from your diaphragm without the fake falsetto.

Andy speaks in a convincingly female voice.

                            ANDY
            Like this.

                         PAM
            Oh, my – you’ve got it!   That’s great!

We SEE Andy’s demeanor change. His posture and stance,
although feminine, are no longer exaggerated. He walks into
another room, comes back and then sits down. He then
touches up his makeup all in a distinctly natural, female
manner.

                         PAM (cont’d)
            You are definitely ready for a test!     But first
            let me get that right ear pierced.

Pam check Andy’s left ear, then she marks the right ear.
She steps back and checks to make sure that the holes will
be lined up. She the quickly pierces Andy’s right ear.

                         PAM (cont’d)
   Everyone tells you not to take the studs out for four to
   six weeks, but you can take it out and put it back in if
   you keep it clean and can put up with some soreness...
   Come on, let’s go! I’ll tell you more on the way.

                          ANDY
                    (continuing with female voice)
            Wait.
                                                                75.
Andy walks into another room and then returns holding a
business card.

                          ANDY
             I need you to call this number tomorrow and
             make sure they received the envelope I left.

                             PAM
             You left?

                          ANDY
             Yes, that I... no, that Kara left. Ask them to
             mail the keys to the address on the back of
             that card.

                          PAM
             Kara, huh? Okay, Kara I can do that. Now
             let’s find you something a little more wild for
             night life action!


INT.   THE OTHER SIDE DANCE CLUB – NIGHT

Pam, dressed for a night out, enters the club. Andy,
dressed in a short skirt and high heels, follows timidly.
Pam grabs Andy’s hand.

                          PAM
             Don’t worry. No one is going to judge you
             here.

Pam and Andy move into the club.     Pam greets a doorman,
FRANK.

                            PAM (cont’d)
             Hey, Frank.    How are you?

                          FRANK
              Hi, Pam. I’m fine. It’s just starting to
              pick up a little. Who’s your lady friend?

                            PAM
              Sorry.    This is Kara.    Kara, this is Frank.

                             ANDY/KARA
                       (waves)
              Hello.

                          FRANK
              Nice to meet you, Kara.
                                                          76.
As a few more people enter the club, Frank ushers Pam and
Andy inside. With a wave of his hand he coaxes Pam and Andy
to keep moving further into the club. As he focuses on the
next group coming in, he speaks to Andy and Pam.

                         FRANK (cont’d)
            You ladies have a nice night.

Pam and Andy walk into the club.    SEVERAL SHOTS of the
club’s patrons:

A) Two men talking at the bar.

B) Two women, dressed in leather, hugging each other.

C) Two flamboyant drag queens parade around like runway
   models.

D) An empty dance floor and performance stage.

E) A man and a woman seated at a table talking to each
   other.

Pam leads Andy to a table.   They sit down at the table.

                         PAM
            You’ll see it all    in here, honey. But
            everyone’s cool.     Just take it easy on the
            alcohol and we’ll    have fun. And I’ll bet you
            more women hit on    you than men.

We SEE SEVERAL SHOTS of the patrons including Andy walking
up to the bar and ordering two drinks from the bartender.


INT. ANDY’S HOUSE – DAY

Andy is seated in front of his Powerbook. His hair is
noticeably longer, falling past his ears and slightly in his
face. We SEE the Preeminent Defender program on the
Powerbook Screen. CLOSE SHOT of ANDY as we SEE an earring
stud in his right ear. Andy concentrates intently on the
screen. He pauses, then types at a furious pace. We HEAR
his doorbell ring. Andy reacts to the bell by looking at a
clock near his computer.

                          ANDY
            Damn!   It’s that late already?!

Andy looks himself over. He hurriedly steps away from the
computer and we SEE he is dressed in running clothes.
                                                            77.
Andy rushes into the downstairs bathroom. We HEAR the
doorbell ring again. Andy pops out of the bathroom long
enough to yell at the front door before darting back into
the room.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            Just a second! I’ll be right there!

Andy rushes out of the bathroom and moves to the front door.
His hair is slicked back with styling gel and tied into a
ponytail. Andy’s POV as he opens the door and sees Kristen
standing outside holding a UPS package.

                         KRISTEN
            Special delivery.

As Kristen finishes her message, she looks quizzically at
Andy.

                         KRISTEN (cont’d)
            Hi, I...

Andy senses her curious gaze.

                         ANDY
            I guess you don’t like the ponytail look?

Kristen enters the house and moves closer to Andy. Andy
takes the package from Kristen before the box hits him.

                         KRISTEN
            No, no... it just caught me by surprise.

                         ANDY
            It’s okay then?

                         KRISTEN
            Yeah, it’s just... different for you. You
            look, younger I guess. I never noticed that
            your ears are pierced.

Andy ignores Kristen comment and ushers her further into the
house. He places the box next to a coffee table. We SEE
several women’s clothes catalogs on the table. On the
bottom of the pile we notice a Cosmopolitan magazine peeking
out from the stack.

                         ANDY
            Come on in. Thanks for the delivery.   I’ll
            just be a second.
                                                          78.
Kristen’s POV as she notices the computer area and the pile
of papers scattered around it.

                          KRISTEN
            Wow.   Looks like you’ve been busy.

Andy scoots over to the computer. As he moves to his work
station, Kristen moves over to the coffee table and picks up
one of the magazines. Andy quickly shuts down the computer
and hurries over to Kristen.

                         KRISTEN (cont’d)
            This place has some nice clothes.     Is that
            where the package is from?

Andy moves closer to Kristen and attempts to divert her
attention away from the magazines.

                          ANDY
            I think so.

We SEE Andy tug on his right earlobe.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            I ordered some Christmas presents for my
            sister.

                         KRISTEN
            You’ve got a lot of magazines here.

Andy tries unsuccessfully to get between Kristen and the
coffee table.

                         ANDY
            Yeah, you know how it is, you order from one
            place and bam – you’re on a big mailing list.
            Next thing you know you’ve got all kinds of
            catalogs coming.

Kristen picks up a Victoria’s Secret catalog from the pile.

                         KRISTEN
            I hope you’re not ordering for your sister from
            here.

Andy takes the catalog from Kristen and hugs her.

                         ANDY
            You know, there are some other people on my
            list this year. I’d like one of them to be
            surprised.
                                                           79.
Andy kisses Kristen.

                         KRISTEN
            Oh, I love surprises. Are you sure you don’t
            need the surprisee’s sizes?

Andy scoops up all the catalogs and begins walking away from
Kristen. He walks upstairs and talks over his shoulder to
Kristen.

                         ANDY
            I’m all set. Let me just grab a hat and a warm
            up top.

                         KRISTEN
            It’s really unseasonably warm out there.
            You’d probably be good without one.

                         ANDY
                   (mimicking a newsman.)
            Thank you for the weather update, Meteorolgist
            Kristen. Now back to you, Dan.

Kristen laughs as Andy disappears upstairs. A little later
we SEE Andy and Kristen running down Andy’s street. In the
b.g. we SEE a Seattle City Light (Electric Company) truck
parked on the side of the street. We SEE a utility worker
climbing an electric pole.


INT. ANDY’S HOUSE – DAY

Andy works on his Powerbook computer. We SEE him open the
Preeminent Defender program. CLOSE UP of the Powerbook
screen. As the program opens we SEE an icon of a man
dressed in a suit of armor. The man becomes animated and he
performs a few martial arts moves. He then stands straight
at attention as a metal gate falls down behind him. Andy
continues to work on the program.

                         ANDY
            Okay, P.D... Let’s see what we can do.

We SEE Andy hack into the Seattle Federal Credit Union
files. We SEE an account set up form displayed on the
screen. Andy types Kara W. Renada in the primary account
holder name box on the form. We SEE him continue to type on
the keyboard.

                            ANDY (cont’d)
            There.     That should do it.
                                                         80.
We watch as Andy works on the computer. Andy looks at a
piece of paper next to the Powerbook. He then looks at the
computer screen and we SEE the words on top of the page
displayed on the screen: Offshore Account Set-Up. Andy
continues to type. On the screen we SEE Pam followed by
several numbers.


INT. A RESTAURANT/BAR – SAME TIME

Seated at a table in the bar, Joy and Pam sip cocktails.

                         JOY
            Andy hasn’t been around in a while.   Have you
            seen him?

                         PAM
            No, no I haven’t.

                         JOY
            I know he tends to get caught up in things and
            we don’t talk for a while but it’s never been
            this long. I guess I always saw him because he
            was getting his hair cut so often.

                         PAM
            Maybe you should call him?

                         JOY
            Yes, I will. You haven’t talked to him,
            either?... Because I know you two were
            getting kind of tight.

                         PAM
            Joy, if you’re upset about that please let me
            know. I don’t want it to hurt our friendship.

                         JOY
            Oh, no – not at all.


INT. ANDY’S HOUSE – A FEW DAYS LATER

Andy, in full female attire, is slouched down in a chair
watching CNN on a television in a back room of his house.
We SEE him suck on a beer. His posture and mannerisms are
anything but female making his outfit appear to be in stark,
comical contrast to his demeanor. We SEE a BUSINESS ANALYST
on the television screen. Andy turns up the volume and we
HEAR the business analyst on the television.
                                                         81.
                         BUSINESS ANALYST
            And we’ve just got word that Apogee Technology
            plans to make what executives there are saying
            will be a significant business announcement
            within the next five to ten days.

As Andy hears these words he sits upright in his chair.
O.S. we HEAR the business analyst continue.

                         BUSINESS ANALYST
            We hope to have more on this within the next
            couple of days.

ANGLE ON Andy as he smiles coyly.

                         ANDY
            That a boy, Burkett. I knew you wouldn’t be
            able to keep your mouth shut.

Andy picks up one of the disposable cellular phones and
places a call.

                         ANDY (cont’d)
            Jim, it’s Andy... I know... and I can’t talk
            now either. Just listen. Don’t, I said do
            not buy... Trust me. Tell whoever you had
            involved too. And you never talked to me. Bye.


INT. A HOUSE – SAME TIME

The man with the paper from the earlier café scene sits at
his computer. We SEE his on-line brokerage firm displayed
on the computer screen. In the b.g. a television displays
the same news show Andy has been watching. We SEE Apogee
Technology, Inc. listed on the computer screen. The man
executes a buy now option next to the Apogee listing. As
the transaction progresses, we SEE the man smiling greedily.


INT. ANDY’S HOUSE – THE NEXT DAY

Andy makes a call on one of the disposable cellular phones.


INTERCUT: THE ALLURE SALON

Pam prepares for her next customer.   She answers a ringing
disposable cellular telephone.
                                                            82.
                            PAM
            Hello.

                          ANDY
            Hi.   It’s point of no return time.

                            PAM
            Are you sure?

                         ANDY
                   (with female voice)
            Absolutely, dear.

                         PAM
            Okay. Joy’s gone at three today. My last cut
            should be done by four. I’ll close at five so
            come in right around then, okay?

                            ANDY
            Perfect.

Andy ends the call. He then moves around the house carrying
a small canvas grocery bag. Into the bag he places the pile
of magazines from the coffee table and three disposable
cellular phones. He places the bag on a couch and starts to
go upstairs. We SEE him stop abruptly. He then walks over
to the canvas bag and pulls out the magazines. He throws
the magazines in a garbage container and returns to the
stairs.


EXT. ANDY’S GARAGE – A LITTLE LATER

Andy’s rental car is parked in the garage. Andy closes the
garage door and begins loading some suitcases, shopping
bags, the canvas bag, and the bag from the garbage container
into the trunk of his rental car. We SEE the Powerbook
computer on the garage floor behind the car. Andy picks up
the Powerbook and places it in the trunk.


EXT. STEWART STREET AT PIKE PLACE MARKET – LATER THE SAME
DAY

Andy, wearing dark glasses and a baseball hat with his hair
tucked under it, walks down the street. Andy’s POV as he
spots a MAN WEARING SUNGLASSES and a long leather duster
coat. We SEE the man perform some hand signals to some
people passing by. The people ignore him and continue
walking. We SEE the man spot Andy.
                                                          83.
Fearing Andy is a police officer, the man nonchalantly turns
and walks away. Andy walks fast and catches up to the man.
Andy leans into the man and speaks furtively to him.

                         ANDY
            Hey, I need some work done.

                         MAN WEARING SUNGLASSES
            Do I know you?

                           ANDY
            Come on.    I’m paying a premium fee.

                            MAN WEARING SUNGLASSES
            You a cop?

                            ANDY
            No.

The man pulls up one of his sleeves exposing a white bandage
on his forearm.

                         MAN WEARING SUNGLASSES
            Hey what’s the best thing for this burn, man?

                            ANDY
            New skin.

We SEE the man appraise Andy.

                         MAN WEARING SUNGLASSES
            What you need done?

Andy starts to hand over a small manila envelope.

                         ANDY
            There’s two extra bucks in there if you can
            get it done tomorrow.

                            MAN WEARING SUNGLASSES
            I don’t know.     I’m backed up.

Andy begins to put the envelope back in his pocket.

                         MAN WEARING SUNGLASSES
            Okay, okay – let me have it.

Andy hands over the envelope and the man tucks it in the
breast pocket of his duster.
                                                             84.
                         ANDY
            She’ll pick it up tomorrow.   Don’t give her a
            hard time.

                         MAN WEARING SUNGLASSES
            You got it, cowboy.


EXT / INT. THE ALLURE SALON – EARLY EVENING

The salon’s lights are off. Andy’s rental car is in the
parking lot. We MOVE inside and in the back of the salon we
SEE a woman’s figure seated at Pam’s hair cutting station.
We SEE Pam’s fingers working on Andy’s hair as she places
highlighting strips in it. ANOTHER ANGLE and we SEE Andy’s
long, acrylic fingernails. We SEE Pam begin painting his
nails. We SEE Pam hovering around Andy and combing out his
hair. CLOSE UP of Pam’s hands holding a black apron in
front of Andy’s face. Pam speaks to Andy.

                         PAM
            Okay, you are now officially Kara. Your hair
            came out great so don’t be shocked how good you
            look. Ready?

We SEE the apron fall revealing Andy/Kara. His hair has
been highlighted and cut to a medium length in a very up to
date style. His eyebrows are thinner and distinctly
feminine. With the new hairstyle, full makeup, and clothes,
Andy looks like a pretty woman that no one would suspect is
a man. From this point on, Andy appears as Kara.

                          ANDY/KARA
            Wow!

                          PAM
            I know.   Pretty incredible isn’t it, Kara?

                         ANDY/KARA
                   (in Kara’s voice)
            I just didn’t think it would be this good!

                         PAM
            Remember to use Kara’s voice and no one will
            ever suspect a thing.

                          ANDY/KARA
            Thank you.   This is incredible!

                         PAM
            Point of no return.   Are you okay with it?
                                                           85.
                         ANDY/KARA
            Yes, I’m just a little shocked I guess... I
            have a few things for you to do then
            regrettably, we have to say goodbye.

Andy/Kara stands up and picks up his purse from a counter.
He pulls out an envelope.

                         ANDY/KARA (cont’d)
            This has all your account information. Follow
            the instructions and the money will be
            available to you. I included a tip. My only
            suggestion is that you withdraw it in small
            increments rather than all at once. You’ll
            need to be moved out and on a plane to wherever
            you’re going within two days... Sorry.

                         PAM
            That’s fine. I’m ready.

                         ANDY
            Have you said anything to Joy?

                         PAM
            Not about this. I made a deal with you and
            I’ve kept it. Thank you for keeping up your
            end.

                         ANDY/KARA
            You’re welcome. Now, I need to know when the
            garbage gets picked up.

Andy/Kara moves next to two bags lying on the floor.

                          PAM
                   (puzzled)
            Uh, tomorrow.

                         ANDY/KARA
            How about at your place?

                         PAM
            The next day, I think.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Perfect. Take the bag of my clothes and throw
            it out here. Then, this is very important – I
            need you to take this Powerbook and I want you
            to physically put it in the back of the garbage
            truck when it comes to collect at your house.
                         (more)
                                                          86.
                         ANDY/KARA (cont’d)
            Take one of the hundred dollar bills I put in
            the envelope and give it to the garbage truck
            driver. Then ask him to crush the Powerbook as
            you watch.

                         PAM
            Will he do it?

                         ANDY/KARA
            For a hundred dollars? I think so. He’s got
            to. Put the Powerbook in a bag if you want and
            make up some story that your dirt bag boyfriend
            is screwing around on you and you want to make
            him pay. I’m sure you’ll be able to convince
            him. Just make sure you watch him crush it.

                          PAM
            Okay.

                          ANDY/KARA
            Okay.   I guess that’s it.

Andy/Kara gives Pam a hug.

                         ANDY/KARA (cont’d)
            Thanks for everything. You’ve been great.   I
            hope everything goes well for you.

Pam becomes teary eyed.

                         PAM
            Thanks for giving me the opportunity to get to
            where I need to be.

Andy/Kara wipes Pam’s tears.

                         ANDY/KARA
            You’re welcome.

Andy/Kara starts to leave then stops.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Pam, I wish I could tell you what this is all
            about.

                         PAM
            No, don’t. I don’t need to know.   I just hope
            it’s worth it for you.
                                                          87.
                         ANDY/KARA
            Thanks.


EXT. / INT. A GROCERY STORE IN SEATTLE – LATER THE SAME
NIGHT

Andy/Kara checks his makeup in the rear view mirror of his
rental car. We SEE him brush his teeth with his finger. He
exits the car, and we SEE he’s parked in the grocery store’s
parking lot. He walks toward the store’s entrance. We MOVE
inside and near the end of one of the store’s aisles where
we SEE a STORE EMPLOYEE stocking shelves. We SEE a plain,
UNATTRACTIVE WOMAN walk down the aisle where the store
employee is stocking shelves. She slows down near the
employee and looks quizzically at the shelves. She looks at
the list in her hand and then looks up at the items on the
shelves again. As she moves down the aisle hopelessly
searching for the item she needs, the store employee fails
to acknowledge her and continues stocking the shelves. The
woman looks for any markings at the end of the aisle where
the employee is working. She obviously could use some
assistance. Frustrated, she walks down the aisle and turns
right at the end of the aisle and moves out of sight. At
the opposite end of the aisle we see Andy/Kara is wearing
the same outfit he was wearing at the salon with Pam, making
him slightly overdressed for a grocery store shopping trip.
He pushes a half full cart down the aisle and past the store
employee. He searches for an item in the same manner as the
unattractive woman before him. In the b.g. we SEE the store
employee stop his work, look at Andy/Kara up and down then
walk up to him.

                         STORE EMPLOYEE
            Can I help you find something?

                         ANDY/KARA
            Oh, no thank you. I think I found it.

Andy is a little uneasy with the attention he’s receiving
from the store employee. He quickly grabs the first item
within reach, a feminine hygiene product. He then moves
quickly away from the employee. Andy/Kara looks at the item
he’s grabbed. He shakes his head in disbelief and
embarrassment. He reluctantly places it in the cart with
his other items. A little later he stands in the check out
aisle next to his purchases on the checkout belt. Next to
the feminine hygiene product we FIND a multipack of
toothbrushes.
                                                          88.
INT. / EXT. ANDY/KARA’S NEW RENTAL HOUSE – LATER, SAME NIGHT

Andy’s rental car is parked in the driveway. The house is
situated in a private neighborhood in another section of
town far away from his other house. We MOVE inside
Andy/Kara’s rental house. On a table near the front door we
SEE a few restaurant menus and a typed note from the Seattle
Real Estate Consortium. The beginning of the letter reads:
Welcome to the neighborhood, Kara. In the b.g. we SEE some
items on a table that Andy/Kara purchased at the grocery
store. We FIND Andy/Kara upstairs unpacking some of the
clothes from the suitcases he brought from his other house.
All of the items he unpacks are female clothes.


INT. ANDY/KARA’S RENTAL HOUSE – THE NEXT DAY

Andy/Kara, conservatively dressed but still very feminine
with perfect hair and makeup, practices female gestures as
he moves about the house, talking to himself as he walks.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Keep it natural... Keep the voice... Go higher
            up at the end of a sentence...

Andy/Kara uses one of the disposable cellular phones to
check his answering machine at his other house. We HEAR
Kristen’s voice through the phone.

                         KRISTEN (V.O.)
            Hi, it’s me. I know you said you weren’t
            going to be around much but I miss you. Call
            me when you can.

Andy/Kara shakes his head. A major down side to his plan is
he can’t see Kristen. He is in love with her, but he can’t
divulge his plan to her. He starts to return Kristen’s call
but then stops.


EXT. STEWART STREET AT PIKE’S PLACE MARKET – A LITTLE LATER
THE SAME DAY

Andy/Kara walks down Stewart Street. He heads for the spot
where he met the man he gave the envelope to the day before.
We HEAR a voice behind Andy/Kara. It belongs to the man
with the sunglasses.

                          MAN WITH THE SUNGLASSES
            Oh, wee!   That sure is fine!
                                                          89.
The man with the sunglasses walks up to Andy/Kara and places
a hand on his arm.

                         MAN WITH THE SUNGLASSES (cont’d)
            You are much hotter in person... I wish I had
            a pic of you with your new “do”.
                   (reaches into his breast coat pocket)
            These would have come out even better.

Andy/Kara steps back and looks nervously at the man, fearing
he will be recognized as Andy.

                         MAN WITH THE SUNGLASSES
            Don’t be nervous. I’m not gonna hurt you.
            Your man said you needed these.

The man hands a package to Andy/Kara.

                         MAN WITH THE SUNGLASSES (cont’d)
            Thanks for the business. Don’t forget to
            recommend me to anyone who needs some work
            done. Later.

The man walks away as Andy/Kara stares blankly at nothing.
He then snaps out of his trance and looks around to see if
anyone witnessed the transaction. Andy’s POV as he sees
several people moving about tending to their own business.
Andy/Kara convinces himself that no one is watching and he
walks away.


EXT. SEATAC AIRPORT – LATER THE SAME DAY

Andy/Kara pulls into an express drop off lane at a Hertz
rental car outlet at the airport. He gets out of the car,
then reenters to grab his purse. In the b.g. we SEE a MALE
HERTZ EMPLOYEE get in a car near Andy/Kara. Andy/Kara walks
away from the car and inside to the rental counter.


INT. THE HERTZ RENTAL CAR OUTLET – A FEW MINUTES LATER

Andy/Kara stands at the rental counter. He is being waited
on by a FEMALE HERTZ EMPLOYEE. We SEE the male Hertz
employee, who was out in the lot when Andy/Kara pulled in,
appear from the Hertz backdrop. He walks past Andy/Kara and
does a double take.

                         MALE HERTZ EMPLOYEE
            Excuse me. Didn’t I just see you at the
            express drop off lot?
                                                             90.
                           ANDY/KARA
            Yes.

                         MALE HERTZ EMPLOYEE
            You should be all checked out then.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Oh, I was just dropping that off for a friend.
            I have a rental reserved for myself.

                           MALE HERTZ EMPLOYEE
            Oh, sorry.

                           ANDY/KARA
            That’s okay.

The female Hertz employee finishes typing in some
information on her keyboard. Without looking up, she
talks to Andy/Kara.

                        FEMALE HERTZ EMPLOYEE
            Okay, Kara. I have your on-line reservation
            confirmed. I just need to see your license for
            a second.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Okay, but it should be prepaid.

                         FEMALE HERTZ EMPLOYEE
            It is. We just use your license number for
            registration purposes. To tell you the truth
            we used to check everyone’s license to make
            sure they were valid but we don’t anymore. But
            I didn’t say that.

Andy/Kara hands over the license. The female employee looks
at her computer screen and quickly enters the license
number. After entering the information she studies the
license then looks at Andy/Kara.

                          FEMALE HERTZ EMPLOYEE
            Wow.   I like your new hairstyle.

                          ANDY/KARA
            Thanks.   It’s actually much easier to handle.

                         FEMALE HERTZ EMPLOYEE
            The color is great too.

                           ANDY/KARA
            Thank you.
                                                            91.
The female employee hands the license back to
Andy/Kara. Andy/Kara places it in his purse. As
he does we SEE the inside of his purse. Next to some
cosmetics we SEE Andy’s male wallet. We SEE the female
employee smile brightly at Andy/Kara.

                           FEMALE HERTZ EMPLOYEE
             Thanks, Kara.   You’re all set.

   Outside the rental outlet Andy/Kara drives away in a
   new rental car.


INT.   ANDY/KARA’S NEW HOUSE – DAY

Andy places a call on one of the disposable cellular phones.
He uses Andy’s voice to speak.

INSERT: Jennifer at Apogee Technology, Inc.

Jennifer answers the telephone and speaks through a headset.

BACK TO SCENE

                           ANDY/KARA
             Jennifer.   Hi, it’s Andy.

                           JENNIFER (V.O.)
             Andy! I thought you disappeared off the face
             of the earth!

                          ANDY/KARA
             I’m working on it.

                          JENNIFER (V.O.)
             What’s that mean?

                          ANDY/KARA
             Never mind. I’m kind of rushed here and I
             apologize for that. I need to know if you
             still need temps.

                          JENNIFER (V.O.)
             Well, Burkett’s secretary is out the next three
             days. She needs a vacation away from him.

                           ANDY/KARA
             Really?   Will Burkett be in?
                                                         92.
                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            He’s scheduled to be away for two days starting
            the day after tomorrow.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Okay. I need you to do me a huge favor.
            Tomorrow at two-twenty call Lightning Temps
            Agency and....

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            We don’t use them anymore. We use Temps
            Solutions.

Andy/Kara picks up a pen and writes down the name of the
agency on a pad of paper with the Seattle Real Estate
Consortium logo on top of the page.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Then call them at two-thirty. Ask for someone
            for the next two days that you haven’t used
            before, someone new.

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Can you tell me why?

                         ANDY/KARA
            I have a friend who needs some work.

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            You want me to throw one of your friends at
            the wolf? What did she do to you?

                         ANDY/KARA
            I thought you said he’d be out?

Andy/Kara walks around with female mannerisms but he
continues to use his male voice.

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            That can always change. What did this poor
            soul do to you?

                         ANDY/KARA
            Nothing. She just needs the work. I’ll...
            she’ll risk it. She can handle herself.

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            If you’re sure.
                                                         93.
                         ANDY/KARA
            Yes. Thanks. Oh, if anyone asks, I called to
            ask you out to dinner to get caught up and I
            said I’d set up a date later.

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            If only that were true.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Sometime soon. Thanks, Jen.      Bye.

                           JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Bye.


EXT. ANDY’S OLD HOUSE – DAY

A landscaping/yard maintenance crew tends to Andy’s yard.
In the b.g. we SEE a card hanging from the front door
handle. Kristen pulls up to the house close to one of the
YARD MAINTENANCE WORKERS. She rolls down her window and
speaks to the worker.

                         KRISTEN
            Excuse me, have you seen Andy today?

                           YARD MAINTENANCE WORKER
            No, sorry.

                         KRISTEN
            Did he set up this appointment?

                         YARD MAINTENANCE WORKER
            We’re on a prepaid contract so we just come on
            a regular basis whenever we can fit it in our
            schedule.

Kristen looks irritated.

                           KRISTEN
            I see.

                         YARD MAINTENANCE WORKER
            Is something wrong?

                           KRISTEN
            No, thanks.

Kristen pulls away.   The worker waves then continues his
work.
                                                             94.
INT. THE FRONT DESK OF TEMPS SOLUTIONS OFFICE – DAY

Andy/Kara enters the office.   He is greeted by the office
manager, LISA.

                         LISA
            Good afternoon. Can I help you?

                         ANDY/KARA
            Hi, yes. I’d like to register for any office
            manager placements you might have?

Lisa puts together a few pieces of paper.

                         LISA
            Sure. If you’d like to have a seat, I’ll have
            you fill out these forms for me and we’ll see
            what we have to offer.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Great.

                         LISA
            Go ahead and have a seat and I’ll bring them
            right over.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Thank you.

Andy/Kara walks over to a row of seats and sits down. Lisa
walks over to Andy/Kara and hands him the forms attached to
a clipboard. As she does this two OFFICE MEN walk by. They
both admire Andy/Kara’s high heels and skirted legs. They
pass by without paying much attention to Lisa.

                         LISA
                   (to the men)
            Hi, guys.

   The men continue to admire Andy/Kara but he doesn’t
   notice as he has already started filling out the forms.

                         TWO OFFICE MEN
                   (while looking at Andy/Kara)
            Hi, Lisa.


We HEAR the office telephone ring at Lisa’s desk. She walks
over to answer it. We SEE a clock on the wall that reads
ten minutes after two o’clock.
                                                           95.
                         LISA
            It’s been a crazy day. Everybody is so
            demanding. A lot of people need help. I’ve
            got to answer this, but if you need any help
            with those forms give me a wave.

                          ANDY/KARA
            Okay.   Don’t let them push you around.

Lisa smiles and lets out a little laugh before answering the
call in her most pleasant voice.

                         LISA
            Good afternoon, Temps Solutions.   How can I
            help?

   Andy/Kara turns an ear toward Lisa’s desk and try
   to listen in on her conversation. We HEAR Lisa O.S.

                         LISA (O.S.)
            Masonry workers? No, we just deal with office
            help.

Andy/Kara realizes it’s not Jennifer and he returns to
completing the application.


INSERT: A clock on the wall reads: two eighteen.

We HEAR Lisa’s phone ring. Andy/Kara stands up and walks to
Lisa’s desk. Lisa answers the telephone.

                         LISA
            Good afternoon, Temps Solutions. How can I
            help?... Oh, hi, Jen... Yes, but we’re glad to
            have your business... Let’s see.

Lisa looks at her computer screen.

                          LISA (cont’d)
            New?

Lisa’s POV as she sees Andy/Kara standing in front of her.

                         LISA
            Hang on, you may be in luck.
                   (to Andy/Kara)
            Kara, do you mind some light secretarial stuff?

                         Andy/Kara
            That would be fine.
                                                            96.
                         LISA
            Are you available tomorrow?

                         ANDY/KARA
            I would have to check... no wait, I know I am.

Lisa returns to speaking with Jennifer.

                         LISA
            I think you’re all set. I have a new applicant
            standing right here. I need to finish her
            registration but I’m sure she’ll be fine.

We HEAR Jennifer’s voice on the other end of the call.

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Is she pretty?

Lisa pauses to sneak a peek at Andy/Kara.

                          LISA
            Yes, why?

                          JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Never mind.

                         LISA
            I’ll call you right back.

Lisa hangs up the phone and turns her attention to
Andy/Kara.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Do you have something for me?

                         LISA
            I think so. I just need to finish your
            paperwork. It will just take a second.   I’ll
            need to see some type of i.d., please.

                          ANDY/KARA
            Oh, okay.

Andy/Kara walks back over to his previous seat and retrieves
his purse and coat.


EXT. / INT. ANDY/KARA’S NEW HOUSE – NIGHT

We SEE a nighttime exterior shot of Andy/Kara’s new house.
                                                          97.
We MOVE inside and SEE Andy/Kara seated at a table with
papers scattered about. He works diligently, scribbling
down some numbers on a piece of paper. We SEE the memory
stick he used to copy the Preeminent Defender program onto.


INT. ANDY/KARA’S NEW HOUSE – THE NEXT DAY

We SEE Andy/Kara applying makeup. We SEE Andy/Kara’s
upper body and we SEE he is swearing only a bra on top, and
we SEE his very realistic breast cleavage. He finishes his
makeup and then looks at the turtleneck sweater he has laid
out. He realizes his dilemma. Placing the turtleneck over
his head will probably smear his makeup. A few seconds
later we SEE him struggling to get his head through the top
of the sweater without too much damage to his makeup. We
HEAR one of the disposable cellular phones ring. Andy/Kara
pops his head out of the sweater and looks warily at the
RINGING telephone. He walks over and picks up the phone. A
caller identification number is displayed on the telephone
but no name. He cautiously presses a button to connect the
call and places the phone up to his ear but he does not say
anything. We HEAR a female voice on the other end of the
line. The voice belongs to Pam but Andy/Kara does not
realize this right away.

                         PAM (V.O.)
            Hello, Andy... Kara? Hello, it’s Pam.

Andy/Kara recognizes Pam’s voice but is surprised to hear
from her.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Pam?

INTERCUT: Pam, dressed in a sexy evening gown, standing
at a pay phone in a Las Vegas casino lobby.

                          ANDY/KARA (cont’d)
            Pam!   What are you doing? Aren’t you gone
            yet?

                         PAM
            Oh, I’m long gone, baby. I wasn’t going to
            call but you said if it was an emergency....

                         ANDY/KARA
            What’s up?
                                                          98.
                         PAM
            I called Joy today to see how she’s doing and
            she said she was really worried because she
            hasn’t heard from you. She said she’s been
            leaving messages but you haven’t returned any.
            I thought you might like to know.

                         ANDY/KARA
            I’ve been checking my machine remotely but she
            hasn’t left any. Come to think of it, I
            haven’t had any messages in a couple of days.

                         PAM
            Are you sure your machine is working right?

                         ANDY/KARA
            I don’t know. Okay, I’ve got to think about
            this. Thanks for the call.

                         PAM
            You’re welcome.

In the b.g. we SEE a man approaching Pam.

                            ANDY/KARA
            Are you okay?

                            PAM
            I’m great.

Pam turns toward the approaching man then spins her back
to him.

                            PAM (cont’d)
            I gotta run.     Bye.

                            ANDY/KARA
            Bye.

Pam hangs up the telephone just before the MAN greets her.
Pam turns back to greet the man, and he takes her hand

                         MAN
            Are you ready?

                         PAM
            Yes, let’s go.

Pam and the man walk together further into the casino.    We
SEE Andy/Kara pacing nervously.
                                                           99.
EXT. ANDY/KARA’S HOUSE – THE SAME DAY – DUSK

We SEE Andy/Kara’s rental car in front of his old house.
Andy/Kara walks up to the front door. CLOSE UP of a sign
hanging from the front door handle. We SEE it is from the
Seattle City Light company and it’s a notification of an
interruption of service for maintenance work on the lines in
the neighborhood.

                         ANDY/KARA
                   (to himself)
            Well, that explains it. The interruption must
            have messed up the answering machine.

Andy/Kara reaches into his purse for a key. ANOTHER ANGLE
as we SEE Kristen’s car slowly come into view in front of
Andy/Kara’s house. Her cars stops in front of the house.
Kristen’s POV as she sees the back of Andy/Kara standing at
the front door using the key to enter the house.

                         KRISTEN
            You son of a bitch, bastard!

Kristen, not recognizing Andy/Kara, assumes the “woman”
entering the house is another girlfriend of Andy’s.

                         KRISTEN (cont’d)
            And you gave her a key?!

We SEE Kristen become more upset. She starts to get out of
the car, but instead she drives away very fast. In the b.g.
Andy/Kara enters the house, totally unaware that Kristen has
just sped away. We FIND Kristen pulling up to her house.
Tears flow down her cheeks. She stops the car and places
her head on the steering wheel. After a few seconds she
lifts her head and wipes away some tears.

                         KRISTEN
                   (to herself)
            I never saw that one coming. I thought you
            might have been the one, Andy.


INT. ANDY/KARA’S HOUSE – SAME TIME

Andy/Kara listens to   his answering machine messages. As we
HEAR Kristen’s voice   we SEE Andy/Kara with his head bowed in
sorrow/frustration.    He wishes he could contact Kristen but
he’s afraid it might   ruin his forthcoming plan.
                                                        100.
                         KRISTEN (V.O.)
            Hi, I’m not sure if you’re getting this –
            your greeting didn’t come on, just a loud beep.
            Anyway, Andy, I know you said you were going to
            be busy, I am too... but I just expected a
            little more consideration at this point in our
            relationship. Call me, so we can talk, please.


EXT. A SEATTLE HIGHWAY – THE NEXT MORNING

We SEE Andy/Kara driving the same roads we saw Andy drive in
the opening scene. He pulls into the same parking garage
that he parked in when he worked for Apogee. He drives past
his old parking spot and parks in another spot. We SEE him
take a deep breath and step out of the car.


INT. THE APOGEE TECHNOLOGY BUILDING – A FEW MINUTES LATER
Two elevator doors open and Andy/Kara, dressed
conservatively but attractively, steps out of the elevator
and walks toward Jennifer’s desk. Jennifer greets
Andy/Kara.

                            JENNIFER
            Good morning.     Can I help you?

                         ANDY/KARA
            Hi, I’m Kara. I’m temping today.

                         JENNIFER
            Oh, yes. You caught me by surprise. The temps
            invariably, well until now anyway, stop
            downstairs at the wrong receptionist. Sheila,
            the receptionist downstairs, directs the
            newbies up here then calls me and let’s me know
            who’s on their way.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Oh, I just came here first.

                         JENNIFER
            How did you know to do that?

We SEE Andy/Kara tug on his right earlobe.

                         ANDY/KARA
            I saw a sign in the garage.
                                                             101.
                         JENNIFER
            It’s nice that someone listened to me and
            finally put that up... Okay, Kara you’ll be
            with Mr. Burkett today.

Jennifer hands some papers to Andy/Kara.

                         JENNIFER (cont’d)
            The office suite is upstairs. It’s on the
            papers with your itinerary. If you have any
            questions just call me at three....

                            ANDY/KARA
            Seventeen.

                          JENNIFER
            Seventeen.   Yes, that’s right.    How did you
            know that?

We SEE Andy/Kara tug on his right earlobe.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Oh, Andy told me the number. He also said you
            are terrific and if there are any problems
            that you are the one to call.

                            JENNIFER
            He said that?     That was nice.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Yes, he’s a great guy – when he’s around.

                         JENNIFER
            Tell me about it.

                         ANDY/KARA
            I’d better get going. Thanks for all your
            help.

                         JENNIFER
            You’re welcome.

Andy/Kara walks toward the elevator. The elevator door
opens and Jim steps out of the elevator. He walks by
Andy/Kara and passes a smile. As Andy/Kara steps into the
elevator Jim looks back at Andy/Kara. We HEAR Jennifer’s
voice O.S.

                         JENNIFER (O.S.)
            She’s temping as Burkett’s secretary today.
                                                            102.
                         JIM
            God bless her.

Jim walks closer to Jennifer and they continue their
conversation.

                         JENNIFER
            She’s a friend of Andy’s I guess.

                         JIM
            Really?


INT. PRESTON BURKETT’S EXTERIOR OFFICE – A LITTLE LATER

Andy/Kara is seated at Burkett’s secretary’s desk in the
space located outside of Burkett’s interior office. We SEE
Andy/Kara looking over some papers. His eyes widen and a
look of panic washes over his face. Andy/Kara is so upset
he slips and uses his own voice.

                         ANDY/KARA
            He’s here today?! She said he was going to be
            gone.

   Preston enters the exterior office.   Immediately upon
   entering, he eyes Andy/Kara.

                         PRESTON BURKETT

            Well, hello there.   I’m Preston Burkett.

Caught off guard, Andy/Kara swallows hard before regaining
his composure.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Hello, Mr. Burkett. I’m Kara.    I’ll be temping
            for you today.

Preston extends his hand. Andy/Kara puts his hand out for
Preston to shake. Preston gently takes Andy/Kara’s hand and
places his other hand on his arm.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
            Preston, Kara. Call me Preston.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Okay... Can I get you some coffee?
                                                        103.
                          PRESTON BURKETT
            Yes, that’d be great. But take your time and
            get used to your space and where everything is
            first. Just bring the coffee in my office when
            you’re ready.

                           ANDY/KARA
            I will.

Preston walks into his office. Andy/Kara nearly faints
with relief. Andy/Kara moves about the office. We SEE him
beginning to make coffee, fumbling the filters and spilling
some coffee grounds in the process. We SEE Preston in his
office reading a newspaper. We SEE Andy/Kara typing on the
keyboard of his computer at Preston’s secretary’s desk. A
little later he delivers Preston’s coffee into Preston’s
office.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Sorry, I should have knocked.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
            That’s fine. I was just looking at my
            schedule. I was supposed to be on a flight to
            San Francisco, but it’s been put off.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Is that a good thing?

                         PRESTON BURKETT
            Well, I got to meet you.

Andy/Kara places Preston’s coffee on the left front corner
of his desk.

                         PRESTON BURKETT (cont’d)
            Ah, that’s right where I usually place my
            coffee.

Andy/Kara circles nervously around the room. He does not
want to look directly at Preston, partly for fear of being
detected and partly because he’s uneasy with Preston’s
forwardness. Andy/Kara spots a large softball trophy.

                           ANDY/KARA
            Nice trophy.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
            Yes, it is. We won the championship this year.
            We had a great year.
                                                           104.
                         ANDY/KARA
            Are you going for a repeat this spring?

                         PRESTON BURKETT
            Love to, but it’ll be hard. We lost two key
            players. Are you a baseball fan?

                         ANDY/KARA
            Oh, very much so. Well, I better get back to
            my to do list.

As Andy/Kara moves for the door, Preston speaks to him
before he can exit.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
            You know, Kara, I’d like to take you out to
            lunch as a thank you for helping us out.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Oh, you’re helping me out more than I’m
            helping you.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
            I’d still like to treat you. I have time
            before I leave for my afternoon meetings.

                         ANDY/KARA
            That’s nice of you, but I have some errands I
            need to take care of during lunch today. How
            about tomorrow?

Andy/Kara turns away and winces as he awaits Preston’s
reply.

                         ANDY/KARA
                   (to himself)
            Please say no, please say no.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
            I have an eight o’clock flight tomorrow that
            I will definitely be on.

Andy/Kara pauses, gets a devilish grin, then turns and
speaks seductively to Preston.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Will you be free for dinner tomorrow?

                          PRESTON BURKETT
            Absolutely.
                                                           105.
Andy/Kara opens the office door.    As he walks out he speaks
to Preston.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Lets’ make it a dinner date then.

                          PRESTON
            Great!

Preston smiles triumphantly. We SEE Andy/Kara just about
collapse as he moves toward his desk.

                          ANDY/KARA
            Oh, my god!   I can’t take much more of this!

A little later we SEE Andy/Kara about to make some copies on
a copy machine situated close to Preston’s office door. In
the b.g. we SEE a clock displaying eleven-thirty. We HEAR
some movement in Preston’s office. Andy/Kara quickly
scurries into a bathroom. Andy/Kara’s POV through a small
slit of an opening in the nearly closed bathroom door. He
watches Preston exit his office and walk over to Andy/Kara’s
desk. He looks around for Andy/Kara. In a rush he leaves a
note on the desk and exits the office. We SEE the relief on
Andy/Kara’s face.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Okay, let’s get to work.

We HEAR the telephone at Andy/Kara’s desk ring.    Andy/Kara
answers it.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Good morning, Preston Burkett’s office.

                          JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Hi, Kara.   It’s Jennifer. How are you making
            out?

                         ANDY/KARA
            I think if Preston had his way I’d be making
            out with him... Sorry, I shouldn’t have said
            that.

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            That’s okay. He’s like that with everyone.
            He’s sneaky. He usually does things with a lot
            of subtle innuendo, but it’s always enough to
            make your skin crawl. How about getting away
            from there for a little lunch with some of the
            girls?
                                                           106.
                         ANDY/KARA
            I’d love to but I have some errands to run.

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Okay, plan on tomorrow then.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Okay. What do I do about the phones when I
            take my lunch break?

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Just roll them over to me or the number
            downstairs. Both numbers should be on your
            desk next to the phone.

                          ANDY/KARA
            Thanks.

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            I’m leaving a little early today, so I
            probably won’t see you later. I’ll just see
            you tomorrow morning. Bye.

                          ANDY/KARA
            All right.   Bye.

Andy/Kara hangs up the telephone and looks around the room.
He gingerly walks into Preston’s office. We SEE him survey
the office. He notices the softball trophy and shakes his
head in disgust. Andy/Kara walks over to Preston’s desk and
sits down in front of Preston’s computer. Just as he’s
about to start working on the computer he realizes he needs
something. He walks out of Preston’s office and into the
outer office where he left his purse. He pulls out a set of
latex gloves and pulls them on his hands. He takes his
purse and walks back into Preston’s office. Before he sits
back down in front of Preston’s computer we HEAR the
telephone at Andy/Kara’s desk ring. Andy/Kara walks out of
Preston’s office and answers the telephone.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Good morning, Preston Burkett’s office... No
            it’s not. Transfer you? Just one second.

Andy/Kara looks at a sheet of telephone extension numbers
for each office and transfer the call. As soon as he does,
the telephone rings again.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Good morn... Good afternoon, Preston Burkett’s
            office... Just one second, please.
                                                         107.
Andy/Kara transfers another call.

                         ANDY/KARA
                   (to himself)
            They must have rolled all the calls over to me
            while they’re at lunch!

We SEE SEVERAL SHOTS of Andy/Kara answering the telephone,
making copies, and faxing papers. We SEE him pick up a list
of things he was scheduled to do during the day. The list
has about half the items crossed out. Andy/Kara types on
the computer at his desk. He pauses to view the time
displayed on the computer screen and we SEE it is two-
thirty.

                          ANDY/KARA
            Damn!   I’m not going to have enough time!


INT. ANDY’S NEW HOUSE – THE SAME NIGHT

We FIND Andy/Kara sunk down deep in a chair, looking tired.
The heels he wore at work lie on the floor next to him. He
rubs his aching feet. He gets up and goes into the bathroom
and draw a bath. A little later we Andy/Kara emerges from
the bathroom wearing a robe. He picks up a disposable
cellular telephone and place a call.

                         ANDY/KARA
                   (with Andy’s voice)
            Jennifer?

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Hi, Andy. I was about to get in a nice bath.
            Can I call you back?

                         ANDY/KARA
            You don’t have to. I just wanted to tell you
            that I just spoke with Kara and she said
            Preston was hitting on her. I thought you said
            he wasn’t going to be in?

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Sorry about that. His schedule changed. But
            tomorrow he’s got an eight o’clock flight then
            he’s coming back for a dinner appointment
            before leaving for the weekend so she should be
            fine.
                                                          108.
                        ANDY/KARA
            Okay. See you tomorrow.     I mean, I’ll call you
            later. Bye.


INT. THE APOGEE BUILDING – THE NEXT MORNING

Andy/Kara, wearing a skirt and a casual top, enters
Burkett’s outer office. He walks into Preston’s office
carrying his purse. He sits down at Preston’s computer.
Andy/Kara’s latex covered hand reaches into his purse and
pulls out the green memory stick with the copied Preeminent
Defender program on it. Just as he is about to place the
disk in the computer we HEAR the outer office door open and
we HEAR someone enter. Andy/Kara quickly turns in Preston’s
swivel chair to see who is entering. As he does he bangs
his shin on the edge of the desk, and he emits a muffled cry
of pain.

                           ANDY/KARA
                   Ouch!

We MOVE to the outer office and we SEE a MAINTENANCE PERSON
looking around in search of the painful cry he heard.
Andy/Kara stands up and walks, first with a limp and then
recovering to a normal gate by the time he reaches the door.
With his hands behind his back he steps out to SEE the
maintenance person.

                         MAINTENANCE PERSON
                   Hi. I just need to clean this bathroom.
                   I got Mr. Burkett’s yesterday.

                           ANDY/KARA
                   Sure.    Go ahead.

Andy/Kara turns and moves back into Preston’s office. We
SEE him look down at his shin. He notices a run in his hose
and a dribble of blood leaking from a little slice of open
skin.

                           ANDY/KARA
                   Damn!

Andy/Kara moves over to Preston’s desk. He pulls some
tissues from a box on the desk and blots the blood on his
leg. He then places the tissues in his purse. We SEE
Andy/Kara sitting at Preston’s desk, waiting anxiously for
the maintenance person to leave. A few seconds later we
HEAR the maintenance person leaving.
                                                         109.
Andy/Kara gets up and walks close enough to the door to make
sure the maintenance person has left. He then returns to
the computer. We SEE him download the Preeminent Defender
program onto Preston’s computer. As the program loads, he
picks up the telephone. We SEE him press three, one, seven
and wait for Jennifer to answer.

                         ANDY/KARA
                   Jennifer, hi. I think I’m going to
                   have to pass on lunch today. I’m
                   feeling a little,... bloated. If I get
                   everything done, I might leave early and
                   you can just deduct the hours from my
                   pay, okay?... Thanks. Bye.

INTERCUT: Jennifer sitting at her desk.

We SEE Jennifer look down at the lit number on the
telephone. It has Burkett written next to it. We SEE
Jennifer pause and take note of this then disconnect the
call. We HEAR another line on Jennifer’s telephone ring.

BACK TO SCENE

We SEE Andy/Kara working quickly on Burkett’s computer. We
SEE Preston Burkett’s bank statement on the screen. We SEE
Andy/Kara select a transfer funds option box. Andy/Kara
continues to work at the computer, typing rapidly. We SEE
some financial papers with dollar amounts on the screen. At
the top of the screen we SEE the Apogee Technology company
logo and name. We see a CLOSE UP of Andy/Kara’s hands
typing on the keyboard. Andy/Kara talks to himself in
Andy’s voice as he continues to work.

                         ANDY/KARA
            Okay, moving along nicely.    This program
            is pure genius!

INTERCUT: Jennifer at her desk talking on the telephone.

                         JENNIFER
            I’m sorry, Mr. Burkett is not available...
            Okay, bye.

Jennifer disconnects the call then speaks out loud to
herself.

                         JENNIFER (cont’d)
            Why did she roll her calls over to me?
                                                         110.
Jennifer contemplates her last statement. She then adjusts
her headset and presses a few buttons in the same manner she
did when she listened in on Andy and Preston’s argument when
Andy was being fired.

BACK TO SCENE

Andy/Kara sits at the computer smiling triumphantly.

                          ANDY/KARA
                   (in Andy’s voice)
            There, voila!

INTERCUT: Jennifer listening in. We SEE her look perplexed
then we SEE her eyes grow wide. She covers her mouth upon
realizing her discovery.

BACK TO SCENE

                         ANDY/KARA
                   (to himself)
            One final touch and we’re golden!

Andy/Kara makes a few more keystrokes then sits back in the
chair, his mission accomplished. He pauses a second to
relish his revengeful victory. He then quickly removes the
data storage device from the computer, performs a few
keystrokes, places the stick in his purse, places the purse
strap on his shoulder and walks out of Preston’s office. He
grabs his coat and nonchalantly strolls out of the outer
office and into a hallway. We SEE him move down the hallway
and through a door labeled stairs.


INT. / EXT. A MEN’S CLOTHING STORE – A LITTLE LATER

A WOMAN SALESPERSON in the store packs a few items for
Andy/Kara.

                         WOMAN SALESPERSON
            Thank you. I’m sure he’ll be happy with your
            selections. I’d like to say I’ll see you again
            but this is my last day. I’m moving to Atlanta
            tomorrow.

                         ANDY/KARA
            I hear that’s a great city.   Good luck.

Andy/Kara walks out of the store carrying a few bags.
                                                             111.
INT. A RESTAURANT – LATER THE SAME NIGHT

Preston Burkett is seated alone at a table. We SEE him look
at his watch then tap his fingers on the table.

A WAITER delivers a drink to Preston.

                           WAITER
            Mr. Burkett?

                           PRESTON BURKETT
            Yes.

                         WAITER
            I have a message for you from Kara. She said
            she apologizes but she is running late and
            should be here shortly.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
                   (smiling)
            Thank you. I was starting to worry.


INT. ANDY’S NEW HOUSE – SAME TIME

Andy/Kara smiles deviously as he takes a disposable cellular
phone away from his ear and places it into his purse.


EXT. A SMALL HERTZ CAR RENTAL LOT – NIGHT

We SEE Andy/Kara’s rental car parked in the nearly desolate
lot. The agency is closed and there does not appear to be
anyone else nearby.

BACK TO BURKETT’S TABLE AT THE RESTAURANT – LATER

Preston is still seated alone at his table. He looks at his
watch again. A waiter clears a table and we SEE the
restaurant has only a couple of other tables with seated
patrons. The waiter, carrying some dishes from the table he
just cleared, walks up to Preston’s table.

                         WAITER
            I’m sorry, Mr. Burkett.     I hope she’s okay.

Preston nods his head and brushes the waiter off with a wave
of his hands. He pulls out his bank card then put it away,
opting to pay with cash instead.
                                                           112.
He leaves some cash on the table and walks away from the
table and toward the restaurant’s exit.


EXT. THE SMALL HERTZ CAR RENTAL PARKING LOT – A LITTLE LATER

Andy emerges from the car. He is wearing the male clothes
he bought at the store in the earlier scene. His hair is
slicked back and is colored close to his natural color. He
places a baseball cap on his head and pulls a couple of bags
out of the car. We SEE him check himself from head to toe,
and we see he is completely transformed back to his male
self. MOVE with him as he walks away from the car and down
a street. He slows down at a garbage dumpster, but then we
HEAR the sound of a truck stopping which catches Andy’s
attention. Farther down the street we SEE a garbage truck
and a GARBAGE MAN tossing some trash into the back of it.
Andy approaches the garbage man.

                         ANDY
            Excuse me. Oh, this is perfect! Help me out,
            man. My girlfriend just trashed some of my
            stuff so I’m getting even with her. Toss these
            bags in the back and crush them like she
            crushed my heart, man, and I’ll give you a
            fifty.

                         GARBAGE MAN
            A fifty? You’re kidding, right?    Where’s the
            hidden camera?

Andy hands the garbage man a fifty.   Andy tosses the bags in
the back of the truck.

                         ANDY
            Stupid hidden camera television shows make it
            so you can’t believe anyone. I’m not kidding,
            man. Do it, baby! Hey, can I pull the handle?

The garbage man step aside and puts the fifty in one of his
pockets.

                         GARBAGE MAN
            Hell, you can drive the truck.

Andy presses the handle that activates the crusher on the
truck. We SEE the bags mix together with the other garbage
and compress. Andy cheers.

                         ANDY
            Oh, yeah!
                                                         113.
Andy continues the act as he gives the garbage man a high
five.

                           ANDY
            Thanks, bud.

Andy walks down the street. We FOLLOW him as he walks a
little further before hailing a cab. As Andy gets in the
cab in the b.g. we SEE the garbage man focusing on emptying
more trash into the back of the truck.


INT. THE FIRST CLASS SECTION OF AN AIRPLANE – SAME NIGHT

Andy rests comfortably with his eyes closed and partially
covered by his baseball cap. His legs are stretched out and
his feet are elevated resting on his carry on bag. A FEMALE
FLIGHT ATTENDANT approaches Andy. The flight attendant’s
POV as she looks at Andy’s legs. His pant legs are pushed
up his leg and his socks have fallen slightly, exposing his
smooth leg. She then looks at Andy’s forehead and notices
his perfectly shaped eyebrows. We SEE the attendant look
curiously at Andy before moving on.


INT. PRESTON BURKETT’S OFFICE – MONDAY MORNING

We SEE Preston sitting at his computer but reading a
newspaper. We HEAR his telephone ring. He answers the
call.

                           PRESTON
            Yes?

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            Mr. Burkett, I have your bank on the line.

                         PRESTON
            Put it through... Hello... What kind of
            problem?... That’s impossible!

We SEE Preston take a few seconds to call up his bank
account statement on his computer. We SEE the balance
indicating he has $6.30 in his account. We SEE the screen
go dark. We SEE Preston staring incredulously at his
computer. ANGLE ON the computer screen. We SEE a black
screen then a clown face appears. The face frowns, and then
we SEE tears drip from the clown’s eyes and down his cheeks.
His bank account screen pops up briefly then the screen
fades to black again and the same clown reappears. We HEAR
the bank officer’s voice through the telephone.
                                                           114.
                           BANK OFFICER (V.O.)
            Mr. Burkett?

We HEAR another line on Preston’s telephone ring.   Preston
snaps out of his trance and answers the call.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
                   (irritated)
            What is it?!

                         JENNIFER (V.O.)
            I have our senior accountant with an urgent
            call, sir.

Preston presses a number on the phone to connect the call.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
            This better not be bad news, Gary.

We SEE the life drain out of Preston’s face.

                         PRESTON BURKETT (cont’d)
            How can that... how can that be?!

INTERCUT: Jennifer at her desk. Assuming there is a major
problem, she wrings her hands nervously.


INT. PRESTON BURKETT’S OUTER OFFICE – A LITTLE LATER

TWO FBI AGENTS from the special investigative team to which
Kristen belongs talk to Preston.

                         PRESTON BURKETT
                   (to the agents)
            I need to get our senior accountant and our
            head computer guy up here to speak with you.
            I’ll be right back.

Preston exits as we SEE Kristen enter the room. She tries
to size up Preston as he leaves then she turns to talk to
her coworkers, MARTIN FRENCH and TOM HENDRICKS.

                         KRISTEN
            Was that Burkett?

                         TOM
            Yeah, he seems pretty distraught.

                         KRISTEN
            So you think he’s uninvolved?
                                                        115.
                         TOM
            Frankly, he doesn’t seem smart enough to move
            twenty million into untraceable accounts.

                            KRISTEN
            Twenty mill.?     Wow! Maybe he’s a good actor?

                         MARTIN
            You’re chasing the wrong dog. We know it was
            the woman temp. She was in the last two days.
            It’s just a matter of time before we track her
            down.

                         KRISTEN
            So she’s smart enough to steal twenty million,
            but dumb enough to wait at home until we come
            knocking?

We SEE Tom chuckle.

                         MARTIN
            Look, this is our case.    I’m not even sure
            why you’re here.

                         KRISTEN
            I was told to come by Weathers. Do you want to
            question his reasons? I’ve got him on speed
            dial, it’ll just take a second to ring him.
            You do know how to use a cell phone, right?

                         MARTIN
                   (rolls eyes)
            We’ve got this covered.

                         KRISTEN
            Have you processed either office yet?

                         TOM
            We lifted a couple of partials.

                         MARTIN
            We’re cross checking them with all the females
            on file with the company.

                         KRISTEN
            I thought you said she was a temp?

                         MARTIN
            Apogee has their temps printed if they work
            more than five days. And the temp agency might
            have something.
                                                          116.
                         KRISTEN
            Think she has any priors?

                          MARTIN
            Doubtful.   Not too many embezzlers are female.

                         KRISTEN
            It’s only the smart men who do this kind of
            job, right Marty?

                         MARTIN
            It’s Martin. I’m telling you we have this
            covered.

                         KRISTEN
            I’m guessing you were never a big fan of the,
            “there is no I in team” slogan.

We SEE Tom let out a smirk before speaking to Martin.

                         TOM
            Why don’t you have Kristen check all the
            recently fired employees just to make sure
            there aren’t any... co-conspirators?

                         MARTIN
            There’s your bone, Krissy.

Kristen shakes her head and look disgusted with Martin.

                         TOM
            Strange thing is, Burkett said if it was a week
            later, this couldn’t have happened.

                           KRISTEN
            Why is that?

                         TOM
            He’s says they were about to launch a new
            encryption program that would prevent hacking
            and allow for secure transactions through the
            internet.

                         MARTIN
            They weren’t already secure?

                         KRISTEN
                   (to Martin)
            Got some things you thought were private
            drifting out there in cyberspace?
                                                        117.
                         TOM
            This software was going to make the old method
            obsolete. They were on the forefront of
            cashing in big time.

                         KRISTEN
            So that’s what their press conference last week
            was referring to. We need to find out who was
            involved in that project.
                   (to Tom)
            Do you really think this was just bad timing?

                         MARTIN
            Who cares? We’ve got the chick! The
            transactions took place on Burkett’s computer
            in his office. She was the only one in
            there! We just have to find her. It’s only
            a matter of time.

                         TOM
            Tell that to Apogee’s stockholders.

Kristen begins to walk out the door.   As she leaves she
replies to Martin’s statement.

                          KRISTEN
            Chick?


INT. THE APOGEE BUILDING – JENNIFER’S DESK – A LITTLE
LATER

Kristen walks up to Jennifer, shows her badge, and
introduces herself.

                         KRISTEN
            Jennifer? I’m Kristen. I’m with a special
            investigative team from the FBI.

                         JENNIFER
            What’s going on?

                         KRISTEN
            What can you tell me about the temp you hired
            to replace Mr. Burkett’s secretary?

                          JENNIFER
            Which one?   We’ve had several.

                         KRISTEN
            Right now I need to know about Kara.
                                                         118.
Jennifer acts a little nervous as she reaches for a file.

                         JENNIFER
            We hired her for two days from Temps Solutions.
            It’s where we get all of our temps.

                         KRISTEN
            Is that her file?

Jennifer hands the file to Kristen.

                         JENNIFER
            This is what we received from the agency.

                         KRISTEN
            Can I get copies of these?

                          JENNIFER
            Those are.   You can keep them.

Kristen looks around the ceiling area and spots a
surveillance camera pointed at her.

                         KRISTEN
            I’m going to need the video from that camera.

Jennifer picks up a video disk from her desk.

                         JENNIFER
                   (handing over the disk)
            One of the security guys thought you’d be
            asking for it.

                         KRISTEN
            Really? Thanks. I just need one other thing,
            and then I’ll let you get back to your work. I
            need a list of all the employees who have quit,
            resigned, been fired or left for some other
            reason in the last year.

                         JENNIFER
            That might take a minute.

                         KRISTEN
            Only a minute? If it’s not too much trouble,
            I’ll wait for it.

                         JENNIFER
            I’ll get it for you.

We SEE Jennifer working on her computer.
                                                         119.
We SEE a list of names with forwarding addresses pop up on
her computer. We SEE Andy Crandell’s name near the bottom
of the list. Jennifer highlights Andy’s information then
deletes it. Kristen moves closer to Jennifer’s computer,
trying to gain a peek at it.

                         KRISTEN
            I really like your hair.

                         JENNIFER
                   (nervous, distracted)
            Oh, thanks.

                         KRISTEN
            I’m still new to the area, and I haven’t
            found anyone that I trust with mine.

                         JENNIFER
            Try the Allure Salon.    Joy is great.

                          KRISTEN
            Thanks.   I’ll have to see her.

Jennifer changes her mind and she retypes Andy’s name only
back on the list. She prints the list, retrieves it from
the printer, and hands it to Kristen. We SEE Kristen scan
the list. Her eyes widen upon viewing Andy’s name. She
turns away to cover her reaction.

                         KRISTEN
            Let’s see... I have forwarding addresses for
            all but one, Andy Crandell.

                         JENNIFER
            Uh, yes... he never left one.

                         KRISTEN
            Some of these have former addresses.     Do you
            have one for him?

                          JENNIFER
            Umm, yes.   I can write it down for you.

Jennifer takes the list from Kristen and enters the address.

                         KRISTEN
            Oh, you have it memorized?

                         JENNIFER
                   (flustered)
            Yes, I don’t know why.
                                                           120.
                         KRISTEN
            Are you two friends?

                         JENNIFER
            I got to know him a little. He walked right by
            here everyday on his way to his office.

                         KRISTEN
            Have you talked to him recently?

                            JENNIFER
            No.

                         KRISTEN
            So his number wouldn’t show up on the recent
            calls I pull from your phone?

                         JENNIFER
            He... he called the other day.   Just to ask me
            out to dinner.

                         KRISTEN
            And you got caught up to speed with each other?

                         JENNIFER
            That’s what dinner was supposed to be for. He
            said he’d call back with a good day and time,
            but we never connected. I didn’t want to get
            him in trouble.

                         KRISTEN
            I understand. He’s not in trouble, but I
            will need to talk to him. Where can I find
            him?

                            JENNIFER
            At his house?

Kristen looks at the list.

                         KRISTEN
            Oh, I live right by there. I think I saw a
            moving truck near there the other day. Just
            in case he’s not there, where does he hang?

                         JENNIFER
            I’m not sure... we both get our hair done by
            Joy but....
                                                           121.
                         KRISTEN
            Okay, maybe I’ll start there.   No big deal.
            Thanks for your help.

Kristen walks away holding the disk and the list.


INSERT: A TELEVISION NEWS SHOW – LATER THAT DAY

A NEWSPERSON stands outside the Apogee building.

                         NEWSPERSON
            Chris Johnson reporting from in front of Apogee
            Technology headquarters where we’ve just found
            out that a possible embezzlement theft has
            occurred within the company. We know that a
            special FBI unit has been on the scene, but
            right now all we have is speculation and rumors
            as to exactly what has happened. However, we
            have seen the technology company’s stock take a
            big hit today. Stay tuned to CBWN to hear more
            details as they unfold.

INSERT: The man with the paper from the café who was seen
purchasing Apogee stock on-line from his home. He sits in
his home at his computer. In the b.g. we SEE his television
is tuned to the news show that just reported on Apogee. We
SEE the man’s jaw fall open in disbelief.


INT. THE ALLURE SALON – A LITTLE LATER

Kristen enters the salon.   She is greeted by Joy.

                         JOY
            Hi, can I help you?

                         KRISTEN
            I hope so. I need to do something different
            with my hair. Andy Crandell recommended you.

                         JOY
                   (annoyed)
            Andy? I haven’t seen him in quite a while, but
            I’m glad he recommended me at least.

                         KRISTEN
            I don’t mean to sound bold, but that sounded a
            little like a bitter girlfriend’s reply.
                                                         122.
                          JOY
                    (laughing)
            No, we’re just friends. He’s always coming and
            going. More often going than anything which
            sometimes makes it hard to count on him as a
            friend.

                         KRISTEN
            Tell me about it.

                         JOY
            Now that was a hurt girlfriend’s reply.   Does
            my description sound too familiar?

We SEE Kristen’s eyes well up with tears.

                         KRISTEN
            I’m sorry. It’s just I thought we had a real
            special relationship going. We’ve been dating,
            and he’s been wonderful, sensitive, caring...
            Then he just drops off the face of the earth.
            Do you know where I could find him? I just
            want to talk... I’m worried. Empathizing with
            Kristen, we SEE Joy place a hand on Kristen’s
            shoulder.

                         JOY
            I know he left Apogee.

Joy’s mention of Apogee confirms what Kristen already knew
but didn’t want to face. Kristen stands upright when Joy
mentions Apogee.

                         KRISTEN
            Did he tell you what company he went to
            work for?

                         JOY
            Pam would know.

                           KRISTEN
            Is she here?

                         JOY
            She moved to Vegas. I guess there’s more
            money to be made as a showgirl than a hair
            stylist.

Kristen’s demeanor changes and she becomes more of an
investigator than a heartsick girlfriend. She notices a
picture of Joy and Pam together.
                                                         123.
In the b.g. we SEE a poster size photograph of Andy, Joy,
and Pam in their Halloween costumes but Kristen doesn’t see
that and focuses instead on the picture of Joy and Pam.

                           KRISTEN
            Is this Pam?    She has the Vegas girl look.

Kristen moves closer to the picture.   Joy starts to become
suspicious.

                         JOY
            What’s going on here? I have the feeling I
            just got played. You aren’t Andy’s girlfriend,
            are you? Are you a cop?

                           KRISTEN
            I’m both.

                         JOY
            What’s he done besides break your heart?    Or
            was that just an act?

                         KRISTEN
            No, it wasn’t. I really need to talk to him.
            Can you tell me where Pam used to hang?

                         JOY
            There’s a club she went to a lot.   She kidded
            about taking Andy there.

                           KRISTEN
            Kidded?

Joy writes down the address on the back of one of her
business cards.

                         JOY
            You’ll see when you get there.


INT. THE OTHER SIDE CLUB – EARLY EVENING

We SEE Kristen talking to the doorman, Frank.

                         FRANK
            It’s kind of slow now. If you want more action
            you should come back around ten.

                         KRISTEN
            I just need some information.
                                                           124.
Kristen shows Frank her badge.

                           FRANK
            A cop?    I never would have guessed.   How can I
            help?

Kristen hands a picture of Pam to Frank.

                         KRISTEN
            Has she been in lately?

                           FRANK
            Pam?   No.   I heard she moved to Boston.

Kristen shows a picture of Andy to Frank.

                         KRISTEN
            How about him? Maybe with or without Pam?

                         FRANK
            No, but you might want to check with our
            bartender. He’s got a better memory.

Kristen pulls another picture out of an envelope and shows
it to Frank.

                           KRISTEN
            Last one.    How about her?

                         FRANK
            I’m pretty sure she was in with Pam one night,
            but she had different hair. She’s much nicer
            in this photo. Name’s Tara, I think.

                           KRISTEN
            Thanks.

                         FRANK
            You’re very welcome. Come back later and there
            will be plenty of people ready to rock a cop’s
            world.

                           KRISTEN
            Really?    I just might have to then.

Kristen smiles wryly then she walks over to the bartender.
                                                         125.
INT. THE FBI SPECIAL INVESTIGATIVE TEAM’S BRIEFING ROOM –
DAY

Greg Weathers leads a briefing/information sharing meeting
with the members of the special investigative team.

                         GREG WEATHERS
            I know the media might be able to help us track
            down our suspect by getting pictures of her
            out, but we need to try and conduct this
            investigation as quietly as possible. We don’t
            want to contribute to any panic behavior on
            Wall Street. We already have tech stocks
            across the board taking a big hit. So, let’s
            see where we are. Tom?

We SEE various shots of the team as they supply their input.

                         TOM
            The real estate office never saw our Kara W.
            Renada, which obviously is an alias. She
            dropped off cash for three months rent after
            office hours in a drop off box at the real
            estate office. It’s a lot of cash to drop but
            it was received safely. The company mailed a
            set of keys to a Mailboxes Etc. box. I’m
            checking that out. She apparently found the
            rental through the internet so we’re hoping she
            left a computer trail somewhere.

                         GREG
            Yeah, like we could be that lucky.

                         TOM
            Well, it looks like she just up and left most
            everything behind. I guess she figured she
            could buy whatever she needs with the twenty
            mill. We’re processing some things from her
            house now, including a scratchpad the real
            estate company left her to write notes on.

                          GREG
            Twenty million is just an estimate. She messed
            up a lot of info and it will be weeks before
            Apogee sorts it out completely. Martin, what
            have you got?
                                                         126.
                         MARTIN
                   (glancing at Kristen)
            The job agency didn’t turn up much. She used
            high quality fake i.d.’s. With her computer
            savvy, she probably did them herself. So
            again, if we could turn up a computer... We
            got a plate number from the parking validation
            agreement Apogee has with the parking garage.
            The plates belong to a rental car which was
            returned to a small Hertz outlet which has
            since rented the car for a cross country trip.
            The agency has no video on the premises, so we
            don’t know where she went after dropping the
            car off.

We SEE another younger member of the team, HERNANDO.

                         HERNANDO
            Or if she was the one who actually dropped it.

We SEE a few members of the team nod in agreement.

                         GREG
            Let’s assume for now that she did. We need to
            try and track her down from that point... We
            need that rental car back too... Kristen?

Kristen comes out of a deep thought and snaps to attention.

                         KRISTEN
            I’ve got dead ends so far...

Martin smiles evilly at Kristen’s lack of ability to share
any leads.

                         KRISTEN (cont’d)
            But have we checked out Burkett yet? I know he
            was out of the office, and that makes for a
            great alibi, but he still could be involved.

                         GREG
            I agree. We should check his whereabouts more
            closely, and his computer skills. Perhaps he
            dialed up his computer remotely.

Martin shakes his head in disgust.   He thinks the team is
wasting time checking out Burkett.

                         KRISTEN
            I’m going to check out his office and computer
            some more to see if we missed anything.
                                                        127.
                         HERNANDO
            Brian is going over the computer in the lab.

The meeting continues with some AD LIBBING.


INT. PRESTON BURKETT’S INNER OFFICE – DAY

We SEE Kristen, carrying a bag used for evidence collection,
enter Burkett’s office. She looks around the room and
slowly walks over to Burkett’s desk. She puts down her bag
and we SEE she’s already wearing protective gloves. She
stands in front of Burkett’s desk then looks for a chair.
She sits in the chair and the force of her body against the
chair combined with the chair’s smooth rollers carry her
away from the desk. She places her hands on the edge of the
desk and pulls herself closer. We then SEE her turn and act
as if the computer that has been taken for evidence still
remains. In an effort to see what position Andy/Kara might
have been sitting in, Kristen places her hands where the
computer’s keyboard would usually be and she then goes
through some imaginary keystrokes. As she tries to
replicate what Andy/Kara might have done, we HEAR the loud
chimes of a clock in the office. The ringing startles
Kristen. As she searches for the sound, she wheels around
in the chair and bangs her shin against the desk.

                         KRISTEN
            Ouch!

We SEE Kristen bend down and rub her leg. While she’s
rubbing her leg a thought comes to her. We SEE her sit down
on the floor and examine the area of the desk that she hit
her shin against. CLOSE UP on the area of the desk that
Kristen’s leg hit. We SEE a dark spot. Kristen removes a
small evidence sample bag from the bag she carried in. She
carefully scrapes the spot and collects it in the evidence
bag. We then SEE her lifting a fingerprint from the
underside of the top of the desk.


INT. KRISTEN’S HOUSE – LATER THE SAME DAY

We SEE Kristen putting in a video disk into a DVD player.
In the b.g. we SEE the two evidence bags Kristen removed
from Burkett’s office. CLOSE UP of the evidence bags lying
on the table. We HEAR Kristen’s doorbell ring. Kristen
walks over to answer the door. In the b.g. we SEE a glimpse
of the video playing in the DVD player, the surveillance
video of Jennifer’s work area at Apogee.
                                                           128.

Kristen answers the door. A POSTAL WORKER is standing
outside holding a large box.

                         POSTAL WORKER
            Hello, Kristen. I have a package for you.

                         KRISTEN
                   (taking the package)
            Thank you.

                         POSTAL WORKER
            You’re welcome. Have a good night.

Kristen nods her head and waves at the postal worker while
focusing on the box. She walks back in the house and opens
the box. From the box she pulls out a beautifully wrapped
present. Kristen opens the present and admires the very
stunning outfit. We SEE her take a small card out from the
bottom of the box. CLOSE UP of the card.

INSERT: The card reads: For a beautiful person.   I wish
I could be there. Love, Andy.

   We SEE Kristen’s eyes well up with tears.

                          KRISTEN
            How nice...

We SEE Kristen change from a heartsick, lovelorn expression
to one of anger.

                         KRISTEN (cont’d)
            I wish you were here too. When you get back
            from vacation with your sleazebag girlfriend,
            you’re going to have some explaining to do!


EXT. / INT. ANDY’S OLD HOUSE – LATER THE SAME DAY – EARLY
EVENING

Kristen’s car pulls up in front of Andy’s house then into
the driveway. We SEE the landscaping/maintenance man from
the earlier scene. He shovels off a light snow from Andy’s
walk. Kristen gets out of her car, pauses, and then walks
right past the man shoveling snow. She walks up to the
front door, searches in her purse, then throws up her arms.

                          KRISTEN
                    (loudly)
            Damn!
                                                          129.

We HEAR the yard care man O.S

                         YARD CARE MAN
            Is there something wrong?

Kristen walks back to the yard care man.

                         KRISTEN
            Hi, I’m Andy’s fiancé. I just realized I left
            my keys at work. I’m not looking forward to
            driving all the way back to the office.

The yard care man smiles at Kristen.

                         YARD CARE MAN
            I remember you. You two got engaged?   That’s
            great. I can let you in.

                         KRISTEN
            Oh, could you? That’d be great!

                         YARD CARE MAN
            No problem. Our crew has a key in case we need
            to get inside when Andy’s not home.

The man unlocks the door and lets Kristen in the house.

                         KRISTEN
            Thank you so much. And thanks for doing the
            walk.

                         YARD CARE MAN
            Included in the service, ma’am.

                         KRISTEN
            Well, thanks for going out of your way to help
            me. I’ll be sure to tell Andy how nice you
            were, and I’ll make sure he remembers you next
            time he pays his bill.

                         YARD CARE MAN
            Thanks. Have a nice night... and best wishes
            for a happy wedding!

Kristen waves and moves inside. We SEE a small pile of mail
lying on the floor under the mail slot. Kristen picks up
the mail and sorts through it. She separates one envelope
from the pile and opens it while moving further into the
house.
                                                         130.
A few minutes later we SEE her seated at the Andy’s computer
work area. We SEE Andy’s computer is on. We SEE Kristen
pick up her cellular telephone and place a call.

                         KRISTEN
            Hello, I’m calling to find out if my fiancé,
            Andy Crandell, started our mail delivery back
            up? He was supposed to do that but I just got
            back from a week in Texas and it doesn’t look
            like much has been delivered... Could you?
            Thanks... Yes, that’s the address... No, he
            hasn’t? Hmm... Okay, thank you... No, let me
            talk to him first. Thanks. Bye.

We SEE Kristen fold her phone over. She talks to herself as
she tries to make sense of everything.

                         KRISTEN
            Okay, you spent about forty grand last month.
            You took the time to stop your mail, but you
            left about a hundred grand in your bank account
            and things lying all over the place. You
            didn’t just disappear. Where are you, Andy?

Kristen picks up an extra set of Andy’s house keys then
walks out of the house.


INT. KRISTEN’S HOUSE – LATE AT NIGHT

We SEE Kristen running through the surveillance video of
Jennifer’s work area.

INSERT: A portion of the video. We SEE Andy/Kara standing
at Jennifer’s work area. We SEE him pull on his right
earlobe. We SEE the video freeze. We SEE the video run
backwards in fast rewind mode, and we SEE the same segment
played over again. We SEE the video in fast rewind again,
and then played back in slow motion.

BACK TO SCENE

We SEE Kristen with her mouth wide open in disbelief.

                         KRISTEN
            No way!
                                                           131.
EXT. / INT. ANDY’S OLD HOUSE – LATER THE SAME NIGHT

We SEE Kristen’s car parked in the driveway, and we SEE
several lights on in the house. We MOVE inside and FIND
Kristen examining the empty space on the wall where the
picture of Burkett and Andy used to hang.


INT. KRISTEN’S HOME – EARLY THE NEXT DAY

We FIND Kristen talking on the telephone.

                          KRISTEN
            Dan?   I need a big favor...

In the b.g. we SEE the two evidence bags lying on the table.


INT. THE HERTZ RENTAL CAR AGENCY AT SEATAC AIRPORT – DAY

Kristen walks up to a CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE and
displays her badge. She presents a picture to the
representative.

                         KRISTEN
            I need to know if this man rented a car here in
            the last four months.

                         CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE
            Don’t you need a warrant or something?

                         KRISTEN
            Yeah, I can come back with one and shut you
            down for a few hours which I promise will be
            during a peak time, or you can get me my answer
            now and I’ll be on my merry way in just a few
            quick minutes.

                         CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE
            Is that his name on the bottom of the picture?

                         KRISTEN
                   (sarcastically)
            My, you’re perceptive.

We SEE the customer representative roll his eyes at
Kristen’s comment then move over to a computer and start
searching the database.
                                                             132.

                           CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE
            Yes, he did.    I assume you’d like a print out?

                         KRISTEN
            Yes, please. And I need a hard copy of all the
            people who rented cars within two hours of his
            drop off time.

                           CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE
            You got it.    What’d he do?

                         KRISTEN
            He shot a nosy customer service rep.


INT. SEATTLE FEDERAL CREDIT UNION – SAME TIME

We SEE FBI agent Martin speaking with a BANK REPRESENTATIVE.

                         BANK REPRESENTATIVE
            The account was just recently set up.

                           MARTIN
            How?

                         BANK REPRESENTATIVE
            On-line. I think. Wait... That’s not
            possible. First time customers need to come
            in and show identification before on-line
            accounts can be activated, but apparently that
            didn’t happen here.


INT. SEATAC AIRPORT – A LITTLE LATER

Kristen talks to a TICKETING AGENT at a United Airlines
terminal. The agent hands back a picture to Kristen.

                         TICKETING AGENT
            I wasn’t here that long ago. It might have
            been Stephanie. She’s with Southwest now. Do
            you want me to call her and see if she’s in?

                           KRISTEN
            No, don’t.    I’ll go see myself.
                                                           133.

INT. SEATAC AIRPORT - THE SOUTHWEST AIRLINES TICKETING
TERMINAL – A FEW MINUTES LATER

We SEE Kristen walk up to a Southwest ticketing agent,
STEPHANIE
                          KRISTEN
             Hi, Stephanie.

   Kristen shows her badge to Stephanie before handing
   Stephanie a picture of Andy.

                         KRISTEN (cont’d)
            I need your help. Do you remember this guy
            buying a ticket from you when you were with
            United?

Stephanie looks at the picture and becomes a little nervous.

                          STEPHANIE
            Yes.

                         KRISTEN
            How did you remember that so quickly?

                         STEPHANIE
            He bought two open ended first class tickets
            with cash. Those sales are easy to recall.

                          KRISTEN
            Two?   He bought two?

                          STEPHANIE
                    (nervously)
            Yes.

                         KRISTEN
            Do you remember the names?

                          STEPHANIE
            Andy....

                          KRISTEN
            Crandell?

                          STEPHANIE
            Yes.

                         KRISTEN
            And the other?
                                                          134.

Stephanie nervously turns away from Kristen.

                         STEPHANIE
            I can’t remember.

                         KRISTEN
            Don’t get amnesia on me now, Stephanie.

                         STEPHANIE
            I want to help, but... I could lose my job.

                         KRISTEN
            Between you and me, what happened?

                         STEPHANIE
            He said it was a surprise... for his
            girlfriend. He gave me a fifty to not use a
            name. I figured the airline would want the
            business.

                         KRISTEN
            And you wanted the fifty.

                         STEPHANIE
                   (sheepishly)
            I don’t make a lot of money. I didn’t think
            they were a risk. I put her in the system as a
            female passenger... They probably traveled
            together.

                         KRISTEN
            Hmmm, in one seat maybe.    Thanks for your help.
            I won’t say anything.

Stephanie gives a thankful smile then Kristen walks away.


INT. THE CONNECTICUT STATE FORENSICS LAB – MERIDEN,
CONNECTICUT – DAY

We SEE a laboratory technician, DAN, looking at a computer
readout of a DNA test. Next to Dan we SEE the evidence bag
Kristen used to collect the blood and skin speck from
Burkett’s desk. We also SEE a used toothbrush next to the
other sample. We SEE Dan place a telephone call.

                         DAN
            Hi, I’ve got your results on your favor... The
            blood and epithelial samples match the sample
            from the toothbrush... Is that all you needed?
                                                          135.
INTERCUT: Kristen’s house.

We SEE Kristen seated and working on her lap top Powerbook
computer. We SEE a split screen fingerprint match displayed
on the screen. Kristen talks to Dan on the telephone
through the computer. We SEE her lean back in her chair.
She now has definitive proof that Andy is Kara. Although
she assumed this to be true, the undeniable physical
evidence shocks her.

                         KRISTEN
            Yeah, that’s all I need, Dan.   Thanks.   Could
            you e-mail me the results?

                          DAN (V.O.)
            Sure thing.   I’ll send them now.   Are you
            okay?

                         KRISTEN
            No, but I’ll manage. Can you hold on to the
            samples for now? Just don’t let anyone else
            know about them, okay?... Thanks... I’ll
            return the favor some day... Bye.

We SEE Kristen bury her head in her face. She then returns
to working on her computer. Kristen displays a picture of
Andy’s face on her Powerbook. We SEE her manipulate the
picture and change Andy’s hair to a color and style similar
to Andy/Kara’s. We then SEE Andy’s picture morph into a
picture of Andy/Kara. We SEE Kristen stare at the screen.

                         KRISTEN
            Unbelievable. Nice work, Andy. But I’ve got a
            fingerprint match and now a DNA confirmation.
            I just need to find you... Where would you go
            to get lost?


EXT. A BEAUTIFUL SUNNY BEACH IN ANTIGUA – ESTABLISHING – DAY

CLOSE UP of a calf muscle of a person lying on the beach.
We SEE the leg has some sparse hair growth. We also SEE the
small scab of a nearly completely healed cut on the person’s
shin. We HEAR Kristen’s voice O.S.

                         KRISTEN
            Your leg hair grows pretty fast, Andy.

We SEE Andy lying on the beach, tanning. He slowly pulls
away the small eye protectors from his eyes.
                                                         136.
He turns toward Kristen’s voice and sits up. Andy’s POV as
he sees Kristen, holding a large shoulder bag, standing over
him.

                         ANDY
            This just became either the best or worst day
            of my life.

Andy stands up next to Kristen.

                          KRISTEN
            Why?   Just tell me why?

                         ANDY
            I only took what they owed me, okay maybe a
            little more. But they screwed me Kristen. Out
            of all of this you have to believe I never
            meant to hurt you.

                         KRISTEN
            Are you saying that because of the handcuffs in
            my bag?

                         ANDY
            I’m smart enough to know there’s no such thing
            as a perfect crime. I just wanted to get what
            is mine, to get away even... no, to win I
            guess, and then get away. I got so caught up
            in this, this game of revenge that I didn’t
            realize it was going to cost me my love for
            you... until it was too late. The money can’t
            replace love. So I sit here in so called
            paradise wondering how I could get you back.
            I’d give it all back for you.

                         KRISTEN
            Was I part of the game?

                         ANDY
            No, never. I didn’t think of it as a game
            until I was fully sucked in. That’s what the
            ultimate game does, it draws you in until you
            feel and think you have to play with no regard
            for anything else. I got caught up in my own
            design principles. But I never lied about my
            feelings for you. My love for you overshadows
            everything else.

We SEE Kristen pull her Powerbook out of her shoulder bag.
Andy stares at it.
                                                        137.
                         KRISTEN
            I have all the evidence I need to convict you
            right here.

We SEE Andy bow his head.

                         ANDY
            So I do lose, both the money and worse, you.

We SEE Kristen smile at Andy.

                         KRISTEN
            You really didn’t think you could outsmart me,
            did you?

Andy senses he still has a chance to win Kristen over.

                         ANDY
            Never, not once! Of course never in my wildest
            dreams did I think I’d have to. I mean, what’s
            the chances you’d work for the people I needed
            to outsmart... You know, the other ticket was
            for you, but I couldn’t ask you to risk so
            much.

                         KRISTEN
            What if I wanted to now?   Is this really a
            great place to get lost?

We SEE Kristen smiling. Andy gets a glint of hope in his
eye as he tries to read Kristen’s face.

                         ANDY
            Yes, but we could go anywhere.

We SEE Kristen drop the Powerbook and move close to Andy.
We SEE them embrace and kiss each other passionately.
Kristen then pulls away and looks at Andy coyly.

                         KRISTEN
                   (sarcastically)
            You didn’t try on that outfit you gave me, did
            you?

                         ANDY
                   (smiling)
            Just once. But it was a little small.

We SEE Andy and Kristen laughing and holding hands.
                                                        138.
                         KRISTEN
            And you’re going to let the hair grow on your
            legs, right? I can’t have my boyfriend having
            prettier legs than me.

                         ANDY
            You know, I was thinking about working in the
            female impersonator show down the road. After
            all, I did look awesome.

                         KRISTEN
            Fooled me when I saw you at your house.

                          ANDY
                    (incredulously)
            What?

                         KRISTEN
            I’ll explain later.

We SEE Andy and Kristen hug and kiss.


INT. JENNIFER’S HOUSE – DAY

We SEE Jennifer open a large envelope and pull out several
packs of paper money. We SEE one of the packs stacked with
large denomination bills. We SEE Jennifer pull a note from
under the bill wrapper of the pack.

INSERT: The note which reads: Thanks.   I owed you. Andy (K)

We SEE Jennifer smile as she reads the note.

                            JENNIFER
            Thanks, Andy.


INT. A HALLWAY LEADING TO AN OPERATING ROOM – DAY

We SEE Pam lying on an operating table. We SEE the man from
the casino standing next to her. The man grabs her hand
then we SEE their hands separate as Pam is wheeled into the
room labeled, Surgery.

                            PAM
            Thanks, Andy.
                                                       139.
EXT. AN ELEGANT BEACH SIDE RESTAURANT – SUNSET

We SEE Andy and Kristen enjoying dinner. We SEE a beautiful
sunset as Andy and Kristen gaze into each other’s eyes.


FADE OUT




                         THE END
