INT. BIBI’S SAFE HOUSE - NIGHT
Serge hands the girls Uzi submachine guns and extra clips.
Here. You’re going to need these --
But I’ve got my trusty SIG-Sauer --
And I’ve got my Glock --
Oooh. This is the new model --
Serge goes to a spot in the floor.
Pulls aside a rug, revealing a trap door.
He gets down, opens it. Looks at them.
Good to have, just in case --
The back door EXPLODES in a massive FIREBALL -- BANG!
Two FBI AGENTS IN BLACK
stand in the doorway. Weapons aimed.
IRATE FBI AGENT
FBI, NOBODY MOVE -- YOU’RE UNDER ARREST!
Bibi WHIPS her weapon at them and start FIRING.
Their bodies get SPRAYED with bullets.
HIT the ground. THWUMP, THWUMP.
Oh, SHIT --
She just shot --
Serge YELLS at them,
half-way down into the tunnel.
C’mon, LET’S GO.
The front door EXPLODES.
Three more AGENTS storm in.
Start FIRING at them in a SPRAY OF MACHINE GUN FIRE.
Cherry and April LEAP behind the couch. Return fire.
Bibi RACES for the open trap door,
but gets SHREDDED into a million pieces.
Her I-phone SKITTERS across the floor.
Serge GRABS it. Ducks.
A tear gas SMOKE BOMB flies across the room.
Lands at the girls’ feet.
Starts BILLOWING poisonous gas.
The room starts filling with SMOKE.
The girls continue FIRING.
April sees the bag on the couch where Serge got the Uzis.
She leans over, opens it. Pulls out a GRENADE.
YES. Come to MOMMA.
Cherry sees it. Eyes grow wide. April pulls out another.
Thank you baby JESUS.
(hands one to Cherry)
You hit the back, I’ll get the front.
She raises her Uzi, fires at the front door,
keeping the agents at bay.
Two more AGENTS rush in the back door, step over the bodies.
Red high-beams on their weapons searching through the smoke.
The girls NOD. Pull the pins. THROW them. DUCK.
Lands at the feet of the agents in the back. BOOM.
A massive FIREBALL engulfs them.
Wood and metal goes FLYING.
A pipe BURSTS.
Starts SPRAYING a fountain of water.
HITS the agents at the front door. BOOM.
Their bodies EXPLODE in a red mist.
SPRAYING the wood and metal that goes FLYING.
APRIL AND CHERRY
Look at each other. Nod.
Race toward the open trap door,
and FLY down the ladder.
IN THE TUNNEL ENTRANCE
Standing on the ladder, PELTED with debris,
April GRABS the trap door, and YANKS it shut. BANG.
They both exhale. Climb down into --
INT. TUNNEL CHAMBER - CONTINUOUS
Serge stands there, waiting, cradling his Uzi. Smiles grimly.
Good work, ladies.
Sorry. Bibi bit the bullet.
She could have led us to Honey Almond’s location.
(holds up the I-phone)
Not to worry. I have her phone.
(swipes it with his finger)
Have all the information you need, on demand.
Nice. Reach out and kill someone --
