The Creative staff is laughing, none more heartily than
their boss, Tori. Greg continues his ribald joke:

GREG
...And I said to him, “Honey, it may be
called ‘Stay Soft’, but women put it on
so men can stay hard and that’s what I
need from you right now!”

After the laughter dies down, Meghan and Tori share a look,
then a smile. Meghan’s happy that her boss is getting back
to normal.

TORI
Alright...I think that’s a sign that
we’ve run out of ideas for the
afternoon. We’ve got enough solid
concepts to share with Perry when he
comes in. Jane, would you mind
checking to see if he’s back yet?

JANE, a cute redhead, makes her way through the agency.
She pokes her head in McMasters’ office. Empty. She
continues to reception. The Hip Receptionist ends a call.

JANE
Any ETA on when Perry is due back?

HIP RECEPTIONIST
Nope. Must be a redhead this time. He
usually takes more time with redheads.

The elevator doors open and off step two men: Fortune
Douglass and the attacker from Vic’s high school bathroom,
still just as lethal looking. He is BORIS SIMONOVA. They
bring an ominous vibe. The girls tense with anxiety.

HIP RECEPTIONIST
(haltingly)
Can I help you gentlemen?

43.

FORTUNE
We need to see Victoria Porter. Right
away, please.

They pause, wanting to protect Tori.

HIP RECEPTIONIST
I...I can see if she’s...in. Who
should I say –

FORTUNE
(smooth but direct)
Miss, I know she’s here. You’ll be
doing her a favor if you’d just tell me
where she is. Now. Please.

The girls are frozen with fear.

TORI (O.S.)

Fortune!

Tori is coming down the hall with the Creative staff. The
Hip Receptionist and Jane look at her with dread.

TORI
What are you doing here?

FORTUNE
Tori, we have to leave. Now.

TORI

What? But I’ve got –

He takes her arm and guides her toward the elevator.

TORI
Fortune! What’s going on?

The Hip Receptionist is about to dial 9-1-1 but one look
into Boris’ cold, killer’s eyes and she freezes.

FORTUNE

Tell you later.

MEGHAN
Tori! What do you want us to do?!

TORI
It’s alright, Meghan. Everybody, it’s
alright.

44.

The elevator doors open and Fortune, Tori and Boris get in.
Immediately after the doors close, the Hip Receptionist
dials 9-1-1 as the other staffers fret.
