INT. THE PICTURE OF DEKE ON DUNCAN'S DESK
A hand picks it up.
INT. THE FUEL OFFICE. WITH BRETT
She's looking at the picture--her expression is thoughtful, sad.
The door from the restaurant section opens and BILL comes in.
How are the lovers?
Heart-rates are slowing down a little,
He takes the straight-razor out of his pocket and unfolds it.
INT. THE BLADE OF THE STRAIGHT-RAZOR
Inlaid upon the blade in Olde English letters are the words
INT. BILL AND BRETT
He refolds the blade and holds out the straight-razor to her.
A girl hitching her way down to
Florida needs some protection.
She puts DEKEĎS photo back on the edge of the desk and slips Motherís
Helper back into her boot.
That what you're doing?
What I was doing before every
machine in the world went into
maximum overdrive. I'm pretty scared,
If I put my arm around you would
you stick me with that thing?
YOU donít stick a person with a
straight-razor. You kind of...
She draws her finger swiftly down through the air and makes
a whickering noise.
And I wouldn't.
He comes to her and slips an arm around her.
Yes-thatís a little better.
I just needed to get away. Things
weren't so great where I was.
They arenít so hot here, either.
They look out at the circling trucks together. Now she puts an arm
around him. She looks younger, sweeter, more vulnerabe.
Can I ask you something?
Whatís a nice guy like you doing
working for a booger like that man
If you're on parole, you need a job.
You're on parole?
Not many people want to hire a parolee.
On the other hand, some guys hire all
they can get. Guys like Hendershot. You
want to know what I did?
She looks up at him.
Tore the heads off third-graders and ate them?
Well, youíre half-right. Just the
tongues. The tongues was all I wanted.
She laughs. He smiles. And when she stops laughing he kisses her
and she kisses him back, quite naturally. He CUPS one of her
breasts gently just for a moment.
They look at each other.
You're looking quite a bit cuter.
I must admit.
They look out the dirty window where another bunch of trucks are
passing by. Then BRETT picks up DEKE'S photo again.
It was his father who got killed
Yeah. Duncan Keller--another one of
Hendershot's pet parolees.
She looks at the picture.
Do you think heís dead?
God knows, but deke's bright. And
he's gutty. If heís act dead, heís
trying to get here.
To his father.
Yeah. To his father.
Ain't life grand?
Pretty grand all right.
Theyíre looking at each other, he kisses her gently. THE CAMERA
MOVES TO the picture of DEKE and HOLDS.
