EXT. PLAZA – DAY
The police vehicle pulls up in front of a crowded business plaza.
McCabe exits with David. Always watching his every move, his every
revelation. David looks upward at the towering skyscraper in the
center of the plaza, rising high to the sky.
INT. SKYSCRAPER – DAY
A Building Guard guides them through the lobby. McCabe trained on
I think I’ve been here before –
A look between the two. A Building Guard intercepts them.
(to Building Guard)
Life Extension Corporation, please.
What – ?
(a look to David)
L.E. We hold a court order.
Brother, I don’t care if you’re Marvin Gaye, come back
from the dead to sing ‘Distant Lover’. you will need a pass.
McCabe strides purposefully past him. Aaron shows the pass, and hustles to keep up.
INT. SKYSCRAPER – 63RD FLOOR/L.E. OUTER OFFICE
AND HALLWAY – DAY
The elevator door opens to reveal a very pleasant and peaceful
environment. Comfortable lounging chairs. On the reception station is
written ‘L.E.’ and underneath it the words: ‘Life Extension
Corporation’. Two more Guards mer them. McCabe watches David,
as Aaron releases him from the handcuffs. The group moves together.
Senses are overwhelming David, as they approach the reception
Her name is Libby.
A stunning young woman rises and moves to greet them.
Good morning. I’m Libby. May I assist you?
I’m Curtis McCabe, here to see Mr. Edmund Ventura.
Libby stares at David’s masked face. It’s slightly unsettling to her.
He’s my son. He’s very shy.
Well, I’m sorry. Mr. Ventura had to leave for Los Angeles.
But one of his associates will be with you shortly. You’re not
with the media or part of any legal consortium, correct?
Welcome to Life Extension. Have a look at our proposal.
Would you like some tea or coffee?
I’ll have coffee.
(a look to Aaron)
Excuse me. We’re in a hurry here.
She offers them two bound folders featuring the logo – ‘L.E.’ –
and guides them down the hallway, looking back with great style,
beckoning, just as in David’s dream recollections.
You’ll be meeting Rebecca Dearborn. (aside) My personal role model.
