INT. JIMMY'S OFFICE - THAT MOMENT
Jimmy and a woman named PAULA (3Os) sit in his office. SLOW DOLLY IN ON EACH thru scene;
JIMMY You look great.
PAULA What the fuck is this, Jimmy?
JIMMY ...you know...
PAULA Did your wife find out?
PAULA Then what?
JIMMY It's just...too late for me to be fuckin' around. I gotta stop. I gotta clean my brain of all the shit I've done that I shouldn't have done --
PAULA -- that you shouldn't have done? That you regret, what? This? What's this? Fuck, man, c'mon. Treat me like an asshole, but treat me like an asshole.
JIMMY I don't wanna have to lie to anyone. I don't want to hurt anyone else, anymore.
She doesn't respond. BEAT. THEN:
JIMMY Thirty fuckin' years I've been with Rose, don't -- y'know -- with this, and I know what you think --
PAULA All your other fluzzies?
JIMMY Yeah. Yes.
PAULA You're making me feel so dirty and shitty. I feel like a big piece of shit right now.
PAULA Are you gonna tell her what you've done?
PAULA Will you say my name?
JIMMY If she asks me any question I want to tell her. I want to tell her everything I've done.
PAULA Well can you do me one favor and don't do that.
Jimmy doesn't answer.
PAULA Come and tell me it's over and I'll walk away, Jimmy. I've fucked you behind your wife's back for three years, and you've fucked teenage girls behind mine for the same amount of time -- I'll walk away, you need something for your life, for your conscience, but don't put me in the middle --
JIMMY I won't.
PAULA What happened to you?
JIMMY I got in trouble at school.
She stands and walks over to him, moves to give him a hug.
PAULA Are you ok?
JIMMY Fuck no.
There's a KNOCK at the door and then it's opened by BURT RAMSEY (60s)
He's the producer of the show; (WHIP TO HIM)
BURT Ready to run. Paula.
Jimmy takes a quick shot, moves to Paula, gives her a tap on the cheek and says;
JIMMY (to Paula)
You're a good one arentcha?
