Pages 43-45

If this seems earlier then the other scenes, that’s because it is. I’ve gone back and fixed to make the times play right. Yes, Sam went to bed with the Sun still out. Old people do that sometimes.

EXT. LAKESIDE PROPERTY – LATE AFTERNOON

The sun is beginning to set.

From the street side, the house doesn’t look like much, but once you walk around the back, it has a gorgeous view of the lake Superior.

The house has a FOR SALE sign on it. No one is home. Perry walks from the front to the back to take in the view. He pulls a folding lawn chair near the back door and walks it down to the edge of the lake.

He unfolds it and has a seat digesting the view.

He makes a phone call.

PERRY
(broken English)
Yes, hello? This is Perry Konstintina. You looking for house for me.
(beat)
Good. I want house on 2313 Lakeside.
(beat)
No offer. I buy full price.
(beat)
That’s okay. I want house. I pay.
(beat)
You get paperwork ready soon?
(beat)
Good. Thank you.

INT. GREEKTOWN CASINO

Martin is inside of the POKER ROOM in Greektown casino. There are lots of tables and lots of action going in. It’s a full night.

Martin is standing in line for the cash exchange.

Two other poker players, PLAYER #1, PLAYER #2, spot Martin standing in line. Player #1 taps Player #2 on the shoulder.

PLAYER #1
Look who it is.

PLAYER #2
Oh shit. It’s that fish from the other night. We better move to his table.
(to Pitboss)
Hey Chief, I need a seat change.

PLAYER #1
(to Pitboss)
Me too!
(to Player #2)
Let’s just hope he has some money left over from last week’s massacre.

Action moves back to Martin as he makes a phone call to Sam.

MARTIN
Where the fuck is our money?

SAM (PHONE/OVER)
What? Who is this?

MARTIN
Oh, don’t play dumb. You know who the fuck this is.

INT. SAM’S BEDROOM – NIGHT

Sam flips on the light. There’s no blood or Woman.

SAM
What? Is this a joke?

MARTIN (PHONE/OVER)
Joke? It’s no joke. You’re behind on your payment.

SAM
I don’t know what you’re talking about. I paid this morning.

INT. GREEKTOWN CASINO – CONTINUOUS

MARTIN
What? What time? To Jimmy?

SAM (PHONE/OVER)
Yeah to Jimmy.
(beat)
Well, not to Jimmy, but to the drop. I dropped it off where he told me to.

MARTIN
(confused)
What the fuck are you talking about drop? I talked to Jimmy around four today and he said you hadn’t paid yet. I don’t know what you’re talking about drop.

INT. SAM’S BEDROOM – CONTINUOUS

SAM
I dropped it off where he told me to drop it off. Under the bridge, off Conant.

MARTIN (PHONE/OVER)
What kind of shit you trying to pull?

SAM
(getting upset)
Hey, Jimmy called me last night and told me to drop it off under a bridge. Go talk to him. And stop fucking calling me this late at night, God damn it!
