Sydney looks at the man.  BEAT.  In this moment, Sydney recognizes this to be the MAN from the MOTEL.  THE HOSTAGE.

MAN
You cost me my wife.  You and your friends beat me....that whore.

Sydney is dumbfounded.  HOLD.

SYDNEY
I don't know what you are talking about?

MAN
Are you Sydney Brown?

Sydney walks past him, the MAN follows.

MAN
A man named Jim told me of you.  I know you, I know you, I followed you.

SYDNEY

MAN
You and you friends, Clementine and John....I'll find them too....

SYDNEY
Don't follow me.

...The MAN runs off, gets in his car and pulls out of the lot.

Sydney lays covered in blood.  He holds onto his breath and his heartbeat for a few moments in horrible pain, He starts to cry.

The CATS watch him from the car.

Sydney lays flat on his back...looking up...gasping for air...

Sydney holds onto his breath for another moment.

  2. Sydney "Brown"... Mr. Brown is the nice old man in the deleted storyline from Boogie Nights, helping Becky, caring for lost souls in need, to make up for his past sins...
