Raquel and her friends and her roommates friends simultaneously occupy the same small apartment. The TV is on, Francis, Jennifer, and others listen to music like Smashing Pumpkins in the bedroom where Raquel tries to mask the smoke with spray.

Inside the main floor - afternoon
Francis asks for directions. Soon they both find the manager's office. The children continually laughing as they fantastically make their way thru a jungle of death defying imagined obstacles.
Beat of silence for emphasis to knock on door.
As Francis and Raquel wait for somebody to come to the door, they take in the vibe.
You are convinced he will come back with a pocket full of riches to sweep you off your feet.
Wouldn't you? We were in love.
just because you tell each other you love them doesn't automatically make it so.
It does if it was love at first sight."
Nah. ! I don't understand love at first sight.
Raquel imitates a Japanese by making her voice course as she annunciates the Japanese translation for love at first sight.
Francis knocks on the door again.
Relationship love involves love making! Have you had sex with you mysterious Don Juan?
In that the door cracks open, lock chain still in place.
Are you the building manager?
The manager confirms his questions and inquires who he is.
My name is Francis. This is my colleague Raquel. We are going around the neighborhood asking if we can paint street addresses on your property roof for the Internet. Do you have the Internet?
EXT. Front of apartment Building - moments later
That was nice but this lame dude you have anxiety about, do you follow him?
FRANCIS dangles car keys.
What did you mean back there about sex making and or love?
How can you say you love somebody without having sex with them first?
You can love your relatives. You don't have sex with them, right?
No no no no. I do not have sex with my siblings. That is not what I am saying. Relationship love is different. Are you telling me that you would agree to go into a marriage with somebody you don't know what they are like in bed? Before knowing how big their dick was? In other words.
I never said I want to marry him.
But that's what people in love do, right?
I don't have to marry somebody to know I love them. We could live together. I don't fuck my roommates, yet I love them.
Francis attempts to end conversation and makes gestures of agreeing to disagree.
Raquel reads him loud and clears and utters her opinions to herself.
It's impossible to be in love with somebody and already have had sex if the kind of love we're talking about is love at first sight.
So, you are going to be okay with taking "this" love interest to next level and continue being in love with him even though he might have a micro dick.~
You don't stop loving your same sex partner because you suddenly have an epiphany she has a clitoris.
Okay but why you want to kill this guy?
INT. painters van - afternoon
This is going to work. Trust me.
It's just too much prep time and for what? We don't even have guarantee that he'll die.
I want it to look natural.
Why can't we throw him off a building? Call it suicide.
Raquel makes deep eye contact.
What's all this painting bullshit?
Raquel feeds off Francis' energy. Stops in the middle of replying and grows wiser for thinking of it.
And just like that the black rainbow syndrome ELLE portrays so well morphs into calm serenity. A satisfied smile verging on evil secures her emotion.
And when he does, we'll kill him with poison. ~
Traffic interrupts their conversation. Another car nearly cuts them off. A car that's been following them without their knowledge and that is being driven by the unfortunate bastard Francis & Raquel scheme to kill's love interest day in and day out. Francis meanwhile has no clue they were being stalked.
