Scene 13

INT. AIRPORT - DAY
Chris, Jutta, Frau Knobloch and Angelique stand in the security line at the airport in Germany.

VOICE OVER INTERCOM
If you notice any suspicious activity, please notify
airport security.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
Was sagt er?
    SUBTITLES
    What did he say?

ANGELIQUE
English.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
I know. I practice English for JR.

JUTTA
This line is so long.

CHRIS
I dreamed I’m a master chef.

JUTTA
You look cute in your chef hat.

CHRIS
Preparing a masterpiece organic souffle for a big
competition.

JUTTA
Chocolate?

CHRIS
What do you think of my restaurant idea?

JUTTA
I love your dreams.

CHRIS
I wanna’ make it reality.

JUTTA
A live vegan restaurant?

CHRIS
Yeah.

JUTTA
That’s a very small niche market.

CHRIS
Live food is big in LA.

JUTTA
What percentage of the population is dedicated to
a live foods diet?

CHRIS
Well, maybe --

JUTTA
How many even know what it is?

CHRIS
I guess --

JUTTA
Business plan? Financial projections? Funding?

CHRIS
Not yet.

JUTTA
It’s another impractical dream you’ll give up on.

CHRIS
Thanks for your support.

JUTTA
Like my father always said, you have to be born
with a killer instinct to make it in business.

CHRIS
Killer instinct?

JUTTA
When a shark smells blood in the water, he instinctively
knows there’s a weakened animal prone for attack.
He doesn’t think. He goes for the kill. In business,
when you detect weakness, you go for the kill. You’re
gonna’ get torn apart.

SECURITY PERSONNEL enters. Chris and Jutta continue arguing inaudibly. Chris becomes increasingly upset. Angelique tries to flirt with Security Personnel.

SECURITY PERSONNEL
If you notice any suspicious behavior, notify security
personnel. Any suspicious behavior--

Frau Knobloch points Chris out to Security Personnel.

SECURITY PERSONNEL
Him?

Frau Knobloch puts her finger to her lips, nods dramatically and makes large hand motions. Angelique nods in agreement.

SECURITY PERSONNEL
Are you being held against your will?

Frau Knobloch and Angelique don’t quite understand, look at each other confused, then nod in unison to Security Personnel. He takes out his gun and points it at Chris.

SECURITY PERSONNEL
Sir, I’d like to ask you some questions.

CHRIS
(Turns around in anger)
What do you want?

SECURITY PERSONNEL
Put your hands up! And keep ‘em up.

CHRIS
What?

SECURITY PERSONNEL
Step out of the line.

JUTTA
Chris, what did you do?

SECURITY PERSONNEL
M’am, stay out of this.
(to Chris)
Come with me.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
(to Angelique with pride)
See, I understood everything.
