“The Killing” by Jeremy Glass
INT. COFFEE SHOP - DAY
SARAH LINDEN and STEPHEN HOLDER drink huge bowls of coffee
STEPHEN: You know what I love about Seattle?
SARAH: If you say ’the coffee’ so help me god, I’ll reach across this table and jam my cell phone down your throat so hard, you’ll be pooping batteries for the rest of your life.
Stephen drinks down her entire bowl of coffee in silence.
STEPHEN: I was just trying to make some conversation, you know, to get our minds off that killing.
SARAH: Not even a big deal, because it’s like: what’s more fun than leaving behind your husband and son for the Pacific Northwest, where everything IS SOAKING WET 365 DAYS A YEAR.
STEPHEN: Whoa. You mad?
SARAH: I ain’t even mad.
STEPHEN: The coffee is pretty good though…
SARAH: Yeah, well, good coffee doesn’t bring dead little white girls back to life, does it?
