The LAPTOP indicates a TRACER PROGRAM STARTS RUNNING.

Ms. M gives MR. K a nod and holds the phone to JJ's ear.
MR. K kicks one of the boxes of tubes and gauges. JJ perks
up a bit.

                         JOE (on phone)
          You there...?

                         JJ
          Heeey... Uncle Lou- How’s Aunt Hildy...?


MS. M takes the phone away from him.


                         MS.  M
          If you hang up now, JJ is a dead man,
          and you and your associates will soon
          follow.


INT AUTO SHOP – SAME                                    021


Joe stands by the desk, on the phone. Senko stands watching
Carson, who sits at the desk with a laptop and a makeshift
telephone box, which allows them to listen in. Darren sits
opposite them keeping an eye on the Girl, who sits a little
away from them eating a power bar. She watches timidly as
the conversation continues.

INTERCUT AS NEEDED


                         JOE
          Hey, don’t threaten me, lady! I can
          bring a world of shit to your front
          door just as easy, believe that.

                         MS. M
          You have our property, then? I trust it
          is undamaged...

                         JOE
          Uh, yeah, she’s fine. What about JJ?

                         MS. M
          Return her and he is yours.

                         JOE
          Naw, you don’t get it. We held up our
          end. We’re expecting three cases of
          equal weight in cash. That ain’t what
          we got.

                         MS. M
          You’re saying you have no interest in
          our property? You will return it to us?

                         JOE
          I‘m saying we have one interest – the
          money you owe us. Give us that, then we
          can talk about the girl.


Senko signals Joe to cut it off.


                         MS. M
          We do not-


                         JOE
          Think it over, I’ll call you back.


He hangs up.


INT STOREROOM – SAME                                   021B


MS. M reads the cell display, then sets the phone down. She
looks at the laptop display.



                        MS. M
          This is becoming irritating.
