INT. JIMMY'S OFFICE - THAT MOMENT
Jimmy and a woman named PAULA (3Os) sit in his office. SLOW DOLLY IN
ON EACH thru scene;
You look great.
What the fuck is this, Jimmy?
Did your wife find out?
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 --
-- 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
I don't wanna have to lie to anyone.
I don't want to hurt anyone else, anymore.
She doesn't respond. BEAT. THEN:
Thirty fuckin' years I've been with
Rose, don't -- y'know -- with
this, and I know what you think --
All your other fluzzies?
You're making me feel so dirty and shitty.
I feel like a big piece of shit right now.
Are you gonna tell her what you've done?
Will you say my name?
If she asks me any question I want
to tell her. I want to tell her
everything I've done.
Well can you do me one favor and
don't do that.
Jimmy doesn't answer.
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 --
What happened to you?
I got in trouble at school.
She stands and walks over to him, moves to give him a hug.
Are you ok?
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)
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?
