David’s face contorts in disgust. CUTAWAY: SLOW META CUT-IN: DAVID Professionalman or sov-bomb. Aren’t those your new heroes?

DAVID (Mumbles something about how he wasn’t a good candidate for surveillance.) Lisa gives him a chance to respond verbally. LISA You do whatever you want. DAVID Okay. I’ll stay. Have a good time. Lisa exits. LISA (V.O.) I am a sov-bomb! FADE OUT;
