INT. ROSALIE’S APARTMENT – NIGHT


INTERCUT – PHONE CONVERSATION


(Note: This conversation takes place between Rosalie and Harry. Harry is calling from the study in his home, which should be the study of a successful and scholarly man, if not (yet) a very rich one. Harry has a drink of some kind.)


ROSALIE


Hello?


HARRY


Rosalie? Hi, it’s Harry. I’m sorry to call so late. Is now an good time to talk?>


ROSALIE


Sure, Harry. I’m not doing anything.


HARRY


Listen, Rosalie, I’m sort of troubled and wanted your advice. About this Creature Wi-Fi business…


ROSALIE


You want my opinion on whether we should let it connect.


HARRY


Yes. I mean, there’s an ethical issue here. It might seem weird to wonder, but what if it wants to take over the world?


ROSALIE


Seriously, Harry?


HARRY


Well, there’s that. But also I get the sense that the investors are beginning to get a little restless with how much time and money we’ve spent on this Creature project.


ROSALIE


Yes?


HARRY


It’s not really part our remit to discover new intelligences. Our continuing mission is to seek out strange new drugs and then charge people for them.


ROSALIE


If you ask me Harry, if you discover any intelligence here at all you’ll be on the road to incredible discoveries. Maybe it’s just my intuition…


HARRY


I trust your intuition. Someone’s going to have monitor this thing’s communications, though.


ROSALIE


If you want a volunteer for the job, I’ll say yes.


HARRY


It might mean a lot of extra hours.


ROSALIE


So I’ll move into the lab if I have to. It will be just like graduate school.


HARRY


Alright. See you there tomorrow then.


ROSALIE


Bye, Harry.
