EXT. NEWSSTAND – NIGHT (LATER)
Steve arrives at the neighborhood newsstand. He looks over to the corner where he once talked with Linda Powell. Two kids are fighting over a comic. The world looks harsh and angry to him.
SLOW PAN ACROSS the magazine rack and each magazine seems to have a voice of its own.
Don’t get down on yourself. You
look great, Steve. You are great.

Come on, Steve. Just you, me
and a little Dippity-Do – –
‘Luck, be a lady too-niiiight . . . ‘

Rio: Yes or no?
Did you know that the average
C.E.O. changes jobs seven times?

Did you know the average love

You want to hold it down a little?
CLUB MAN (V.O.)
Steve. Don’t listen to them.
Listen to me. Let’s go clubbing.
See that guy on the cover . . .
staring at the magazines.
