INT – LARGE STUDIO

ROBERT escorts JOHN into the room.

ROBERT
So this is the place.

JOHN
It’s nice.

ROBERT
Yeah, no frills, just the basics.

JOHN
It does the job.

ROBERT
So, do you mind if I ask you
a couple of questions?

JOHN
No, please, that’s usually
how this works, right?

ROBERT
Yeah, that’s true.
So, do you smoke?

JOHN
Yes, but only outside.

ROBERT
Ok, good.  Um…Do you snore at all?
Because this isn’t the biggest place.

JOHN
No, not a snorer, unless I’m sick.
Then, you know, the congestion.

ROBERT
Oh, that’s fine.  Ok, what about pets?
You got any pets?

JOHN
Nope.  Never had an interest.

ROBERT
Ok.  Well, if you’re interested,
I think this could work out.

JOHN
Excellent!

GUARD (O.S.)
It’s 10 o’clock.  Lights out!
