Hi, Skyland,

Thanks for sharing. The picture you painted was so real. I've worked in that office.
I hope we get more.

Thanks Elaine. Here's a little more of the scene.

Back to scene:

Meg: I'll be right there.

INT. OFFICE - DAY

Over the Boss' desk is a sign - TO FISH OR NOT TO FISH. THAT IS THE QUESTION. Meg stands in the doorway.

Boss: This is not the letter I dictated.

Meg: I'm sure it's what you dictated. I listened to the tape twice.

Boss: You typed disconnected. It's supposed to say discontinued.

Meg takes the letter, stares at it disconcertedly and turns slowly to leave.

COMPUTER SCREEN

The Boss checks airfares on Priceline.com.

INT. RECEPTIONIST AREA - DAY

Meg is back at her desk. Meg types TRIP TO PHOENIX. As she types much to her surprise the computer screen changes to a motion picture screen. The movie starts rolling - SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE.

Joseph Fiennes: What man art thou that thus bescreen'd in night so stumblest on my counsel?

Meg squints. And then, just as oddly the computer screen switches to a commercial for an automatic Lysol mop. Meg stares and slowly starts to faint.

MEG'S DREAM

Meg is atop a mountain holding a Lysol mop like a staff. She looks at the mop in confusion. Suddenly, Swoosh. She is sliding down the mountain. She lands at the bottom of the hill on a dusty trail. Everything is blurry. She looks up to a blue, blue sky. Above her stands a man. It is JOSEPH FIENNES dressed in a black leather motorcycle.
