AREA FOUR: PAGE 9

  • INT. AREA FOUR HEADQUARTERS - RUTZ’S OFFICE
  • Rutz stands in front of his desk, Soames nearby, just being an authority figure. Swerve slumps in a chair. Exhibiting his usual contempt for such figures.
  • SWERVE
  • You want me to what?
  • RUTZ
  • We want you to keep an eye on the kid.
  • SWERVE
  • Because why?
  • Swerve sits up, not entirely easily.
  • SUPERINTENDANT SOAMES
  • He is - admittedly - young.
  • SWERVE
  • You want to admit to anything else about bumping him up to a shield?
  • SUPERINTENDANT SOAMES
  • I have faith in the kid.
  • Swerve gets to his feet.
  • SWERVE
  • Apparently not.
  • RUTZ
  • Swerve--
  • SUPERINTENDANT SOAMES
  • Thing about faith is it doesn’t exist without the possibility of being wrong.
  • SWERVE
  • That’s as close as I’m ever going to get to hearing you say you were, are or will be wrong about something isn’t it?
  • SUPERINTENDANT SOAMES
  • And it never happened.
