INT. OFFICE – MORNING
Sam enters his modest office. His legal assistant, CHERYL, attractive 50s, is sitting behind a desk working.
She grabs a pile of folders and lays them in front of her.
You need to sign the motions for Parker and Mills and we need to file these three petitions.
Sam grabs the files and starts signing away.
I need the petty cash.
Cheryl grabs a small tin from her desk and gives it to Sam.
Sam grabs all the money in it.
Is this it?
You haven’t seen a client this week.
Yeah, well, I’ve been busy.
Sam takes all the money in the tin and hands it back to Cheryl.
Don’t take it all. I’ll need change.
For what? You expecting a client today?
You never know.
Send them next door to get change. I’m going to the bank.
The bank? For what? Damn it, Sam, you’re not gambling again are you?
Don’t worry about it.
I’ll worry about it when it’s my paycheck you’re gambling.
Sam is out the door before she gets her last word in.
INT. BANK – MORNING
A GREETER welcomes Sam at the door.
Good morning. Can I help you?
Is Mr. Murphy in this morning.
Sure is. Why don’t you have a seat and I’ll see if he’s available.
Sam has a seat.
