EXT. STREET - NIGHT
Raquel and Francis finish up painting the rooftop with their spray cans.
you know how Frankenstein has the same suffix STEIN like Weinstein?
Traits they share. Victims.
patients, um, body alterations, COSMETIC SURGERY.
They laugh at their own dark jokes as they walk to the VAN.
MATCH CUT TO:
INT. MOLLY'S CAR - CONTINOUS
Deadpan expression of how tired MOLLY has become stalking these two.
EXT. HIGHWAY - NIGHT
The highway is gridlocked and frozen. RAQUEL AND FRANCIS are just coming to a full stop. FRANCIS checks his blind spot maniacally as if he could sneak a lane change last minute without hitting anyone.
Oh no. No. No, no, no.
INT. VAN - NIGHT
Francis and Raquel find themselves stuck in their car without access to an exit ramp.
Hey, baby. Do you have anymore of those joints?
Hey, I think it's illegal to be smoking while driving
This isn't driving. Please. I gotta take my mind off of… Aw, baby, I needs a toilet.
Raquel looks around suspiciously and produces a SATIVA joint.
After only a few hits, it becomes obvious that Raquel and Francis have reached the apex of their high.
… save that for later
Checking to see if the joint is out by taking one last hit, she begins to pack it up in a little plastic tube.
Roll up your windows and be on the lookout for cops.
I'm gonna have to do it outside.
Raquel being paranoid looks out her window, the rear window, her blind spot, etc.
There's people everywhere.
A trucker looks out his window to see Raquel sticking her head out of the car. He also catches a whiff of the marijuana joint they've been smoking.
Hey! Got anymore of that?
Raquel ducks back into the car. Francis tries to look out the window on Raquel's side, but he doesn't see the trucker from his vantage point. He lowers his window and sticks half his body out to see outside.
The trucker opens his door to get out of his truck.
Hey good buddy. What's the word on this gridlock
It goes up about two miles. We aren't going nowhere. Got some weed?
Is there a port-a-potty nearby?
The trucker invites Francis to his port-a-potty.
INT/EXT. SEMI TRUCK - HIGHWAY - CONTINUOUS
Francis sits in the drivers seat as the TRUCKER searches for any last minute instructions that might come to mind.
Trucker shuts the door and gives Francis his privacy.
Alright, brother. She's all yours. After all, what's more imnportant…
EXT. HIGHWAY - CONTINUOUS
Hey brother, can I get a hit of that!? Oh, sister.
Hey, where's Francis.
He'll be out soon. He's using the toilet-in-the-cab.
Raquel produces the roach she saved earlier
Nope, more like a sampler. You know, my girlfriend use to roll these massive joints
Yeah, that's what I'm talking about.
The trucker climbs into the van.
INT. VAN - CONTINUOUS
Oh God. What a day.
Raquel watches the trucker enjoy the joint.
What do your walkie-talkie buddies say is going on with this traffic?
It's a complete closure. Crime scene is my guess.
Yeah, so… was saying. Jennifer. Stahl. Her name was going to make headlines.
Yeah, you were saying. What's your name?
Me. I'm Elle.
Should I bore you with the story? It's a double murder.
Trucker becomes intrigued.
