Ryan:

Enters His Boss, Marco Histini. An Italian With Style. Enters Silently & Closes Door Behind Him.

Ryan:

Yo Boss. Just Finishing This Work On The Latest Homicide. Stupid Bastard Killed Them Using A Fork! I Mean What The Hell Is Going On In This City Lately! I Walk Down The Road, And A Shopkeeper Is Runing Gangstas Outta Their Shops! Then There's People Beating Other People Up Down Back Alleys.

Marco: (Mumbles) Ryan...

Ryan:

And Then There Is The Cases We Work On. Like, Look At The New York Strangler. I Mean Why Would Anyone Kill The Young Kids Just To Get Back At Their Parents. And The Phoenix Claw. Now That Was One Messed Up Case. And Why Did We Have To Help? It Wasnt Even In Our Jurisdiction! Yeah I Know That The Vic Was From Here But He Was An Ex Drug User And Murderer!

By This Time, Marco Is Getting Frustrated And Started Fijiting With Some Pencils In A Pot On Ryans Desk.

Marco:

Umm... Ryan... We Kind Of .. Well... I Kind Of Need Your Help... Well Actually I Need Your Help. I Can't Control It... It's Difficult To Explain, Its Not What You Could Guess..

Ryan:

Lemme Guess... A New Case? I Do Need To Go Home Though. Karena Hasnt Been Herself Lately. She Woke Up This Morning And Tried To Ring Louis. She Said Something But Did Leave Her A Message. As Soon As She Put The Phone Down She Went Into The Kitchen And The Phone Rang. (Mimic) Hunnybear, Could You Get That Please?!? I Mean How Fucking Lazy Was That!

Marco:

Too Fucking Lazy. Ryan Lecora, Your One Of Best Cops I Think America Has Yet To Know. So I Need Your Help. Can You Listen To This A Second...

Ryan:

Wait A Sec. I Need To Get Something From The Filing Cabinet. (Rummaging Through The Filing Cabinet) You Know, Boss, I Think Your One Of The Greatest Cops I Know Too. You Do Have Upsides Though. You Get Pissed Off Easy, You Look To Intimidating...

Marco:

Thats A Good Thing Though, For A Cop.

Ryan:

I Guess So, But You Do Scare Kinda Like Nearly All Of The Department. No Offence Boss.

Marco:

None Taken.

Ryan:

Marco:

RYAN! Sit Down... No Wait... Stand Up.. No Wait... Ahhh Fuck It. Listen And Listen Well... I Need You In my office within the next minute otherwise ill Fire Your Goddamn Ass.

Ryan:

Boss, Thats A Bit Harsh! I've Just Finished This Massive Case And Im Tired And Wanna Go Home. Karena Is Having A Shit Day Cause Her Friend Has Been Taken To The ER For A Broken Leg And...

Marco:

If You Want Your Job Tomorrow You'd Better Come With Me Now.

Ryan:

But Boss... I Got All This To Put Away First... (Waving Paper)

Marco:

NOW You Stupid Dumb Fuck!

Marco Storms Out.

Ryan's Phone Rings.

Ryan:

Oh Hey Baby. Yeah, You Okay?

Karena:

Hunny, I Think There's A Problem At Louis's House. She Said Yesterday For Me To Ring Her And She Just Isn't Answering. I Was Walking The Dogs Passed Her House And Knocked On The Door. There Was No Answer. I Suppose Im Just Worrying But Its Kinda Weird, Don't You Think?

Ryan:

Love, Its Probably Nothing. She's Maybe Gone Shopping Or Gone To Find A New Wedding Dress For When She Renews Her Vows. The Boss Is Being A Bit Off Aswell.

Karena:

Yeah But She Would Have Taken Me With Her....

In Background:

Marco:

HURRY THE FUCK UP, LECORA!!!!!

Away From The Phone:

Ryan:

YES BOSS!!! (On The Phone) Babe, I Gotta Go Now, Marco Wants Me. See You Later. Bye, Love You! (Getting His Coat On) COMING BOSS!!

Act 1 Scene 2

In Marco's Office. Ryan Is Looking Uncomfortable. Marco Siting In His Chair Looking Seriously At Ryan.

Marco: Ryan.. I Need To Talk To You. Its About ..

Ryan: I Have My Guesses About What Its About. I Guess Im Either Getting Promoted Or Some Other Shit. Mabey Ill Be Getting A Pay Rise.. Or..

Marco:

Shut The Fuck Up, Ryan. This Is Serious. Sit Down.

Ryan Sits On The Chair Opposite Marco's Desk.

Ryan:

What Is It Boss?

Marco:

Ill Show You.

Marco Stands Up And Walks Over To The Filling Cabinet. Gets A Box From The Top Of It. He Sits It On The Desk In Front Of Ryan. Then Rumages Through A Drawer.

Ryan:

Boss What The Hell Is Going On? Whats In That Box? What Are You Looking.....?

Marco:

If You Dont Be Quiet Within The Next 20 Seconds, Im Gonna Kill You. And Im Serious This Time.

Ryan:

O.K Boss, Sorry. Im Just Worried.

Marco:

(Whispers) Found It. Shakes A Piece Of Paper.

Ryan:

What Is It? A Letter From The President? Something Important?

Marco:

Swear To Me On My Moms Ashes That You Wont Tell Anyone This. Promise Me It.

Ryan:

Ooooooo.Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Marco Hands Him The Letter.

Ryan:

(While Reading) Holy Mother Of God...

Marco Opens The Box And Shows A Bloodied White Wedding Dress.

Marco:

(Whispers ) The Sick Bastards Got My Wife. They Got Louis.

Marco Has Tears Going Down His Eyes While Glaring At Ryan. Ryan Is Staring At The Dress.

Ryan:

How Do You Know Its Hers? It Could Be Someone Elses.

Marco:

That Dress Was At Our Wedding, It Was Tailor Made. No Other Person In The Entire Universe Has The Same Dress. I Know Its Hers Aswell Because I Pulled Of A Pearl Button By Accident At The Party. (Points) See?

A Shaky Hand Shows.

Ryan:

So You Have No Idea Of The Whereabouts Of Louis? I Mean, They're After Something of You, Boss. They Want Something From You. You Have To Know What It Is. Look At The Letter.

Ryan Reads The Letter Out Loud:

If You Dont Hand What I Want To Me,

Your Wife Is Dead As Can Be.

Horrible As It May Sound,

Your The One Who Put Him Underground.

(Long Pause Both Ways)

(Stands Up) Hang On A Sec, This Looks Like A Revenge Thing. Its Says 'Your The One Who Put Him Underground.' That Seems Like Saying You Killed Someone Close To The Kidnapper And He Wants Revenge. Or Hes Got The Wrong Guy. Where Was All This Delivered To?

Marco:

My Home.

Ryan:

What?

Marco:

My Own House.

Ryan:

This Is Bad. They Know Where You Live. Ill Get Forensics Down Their And Swab The Place To Give Us A Lead Then...

Marco:

No. Just You And Someone Else Is Gonna Be On This Case. Ill Put Farnell On The Case With You. Only You Two Can Know Whats Going On. Tell Karena Whats Happened But Tell Her Not To Tell Anyone. I Hope Shes O.K.

Ryan:

FARNELL!!! He Cant Pick Up A Pencil Without Dropping It! Your Not Being Serious?

Marco:

He Maybe Clumsy But He Is Ten Times More Inteligant Than You.

Ryan Looks Bewildered At This Remark.

Ryan:

Thanks A Lot, Boss. You Should Stay With Someone 'Till We Catch This Guy. You Can Stay With Me And Karena If You Like.

Marco:

Thanks, Ryan. That Means A Lot To Me. Ill Dump My Stuff Round There Later. First Im Gonna Take This Letter To Nydor And Check For Fingerprints. (Stands)

Ryan Gets Up Out The Chair And Opens The Door For Marco To Leave.

Ryan:

Alright. Im Gonna Stay Here For A While And Scribble Down Notes.

As Marco Leaves The Room, Ryan Sits Down And Starts To Jot Down Notes.
