INT. BEDROOM – DAY
TWO THUGS open the closet doors, pawing through racks of dresses as they look for their prey. But they haven’t yet checked
UNDER THE BED,
where a knife-wielding hand suddenly lashes out, cutting one thug’s Achilles’ tendons. The goon SCREAMS as he falls. Gun in hand, his partner flips back the comforter to carefully look underneath.
But there’s no one there.
Confused, he glances up just in time to see the Thin Man kick him across the face.
Hearing the commotion, two more GOONS crowd into the room.
Ripping the clothes hanger pole from the closet, the Thin Man uses it as a quarterstaff. Not only does he take down those two thugs, he also drives it
THROUGH THE WALL
To peg ANOTHER GUY in the hallway.
INT. KITCHEN – DAY
Still holding Chico the Chihuahua, Alex takes on one THUG after another, using all the tools at her disposal. One guy gets hit with the freezer door, while another gets a face full of flour and a frying pan to the head.
Alex may not be much of a cook, but she’s great in the kitchen.
Needing both hands free, Alex puts Chico into a ceramic cookie jar. A beat later, the dog pokes his head out from under the lid, wanting to watch the fight.
Rolling back over the counter, Alex swings a hanging plant to knock out a pursuer. Be it a waffle iron, rolling pin or barbecue tong, anything Alex touches becomes a weapon.
INT. BATHROOM – DAY
A THUG goes flying through the glass shower door, which SHATTERS. Wrapping his hand in a towel, the Thin Man grabs a large shard and uses it as a glass sword.
INT. LIVING ROOM – DAY
On the table, the iMac’s progress bar shows that Betty’s interminable download is nearly complete. Alex faces two more thugs. She kicks one through the wall. Just then we hear…
Alex picks up the iMac and SMASHES it into the second thug, who goes down. Just when she thinks she’s finished, she hears a
behind her. She turns to face one last thug, the LEADER. He keeps both barrels trained on her.
Kung-fu this, bitch.
Alex knows she’s toast. But just then, we hear a THWICK!
The cut was so fast we didn’t really see it, but then the Thug Leader’s head separates from his body. Both parts fall, revealing
THE THIN MAN,
who carries his improvised glass sword, now blood-stained.
Half a beat, then Alex rushes him. She spin-kicks and SHATTERS his sword, which falls to pieces on the floor.
Both unarmed and extremely dangerous, Alex and the Thin Man stare at each other, face-to-face, not sure what happens next.
Suddenly he grabs her, pulling her in for
A PASSIONATE KISS.
She doesn’t fight it — at least not at first. But then the adrenaline wears off, and she pushes free.
