Scene 41

EXT. PARK - NIGHT
Jutta approaches a park bench.

JUTTA
Tante Angelique? Angelique??? This is the bench.

Jutta notices something on the bench. There is a hat, dark sunglasses, a box of dog biscuits and a note. Jutta picks up the note and reads.

ANGELIQUE (V.O.)
Meet my friend Scruffy. Put on the hat and sunglasses and feed him dog biscuits.

Jutta throws the note down and sits on the bench in disgust. Her cell phone rings, startling her. She answers.

SPLIT SCREEN - JUTTA AND LONDON BUSINESSMAN

JUTTA
Angelique???

LONDON BUSINESSMAN
Jutta? It’s James from Chaswick and Times.

JUTTA
Oh James.

LONDON BUSINESSMAN
I heard you might be on the market after all.

JUTTA
Actually --

LONDON BUSINESSMAN
That position in London is still open.

JUTTA
(having trouble saying no)
I’m not ready for a move right now. My fiancee . . .

LONDON BUSINESSMAN
50% increase in salary.

JUTTA
. . . and I are having problems --

LONDON BUSINESSMAN
Generous housing package.

JUTTA
(increasingly interested)
Maybe getting married --

LONDON BUSINESSMAN
Guaranteed bonus of twice last year’s.

JUTTA
(wants the job)
I need a day to think about it.

LONDON BUSINESSMAN
I want you in the office a week from Monday.

INT. - GAY BAR - NIGHT
Absolute mayhem as the fire engulfs the bar, drag queens running in all directions.
