Hey there, crime kids. Happy Friday. It's time once again to take a trip to the dark side, where your most violent fantasies become sins of the flesh, right here, where the hardboiled action is non-stop, at the coolest crime joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In Chapter 20 of AFTERHOURS, after they subdue the nosy cop that walked in on them, Danny, Vin and the celebrity hostages chow down on the food that Vin went out and got, but when Danny lets Mia use his cell phone to check on her mother in the hospital, Vin blows a gasket ...
INT. THE EXIT ROOM - EARLY MORNING
A big spread of food is on the table.
Everybody sits on the banquet
Vin’s there, too.
Looks like hell in greasy, filthy clothing.
Ohmigod, this is so fucking good.
I don’t eat that cheap shit.
You know your way around munchies.
Great fucking weed.
Took the edge right off.
You really paid a homeless guy
to switch clothes with you?
Yeah. Gave him a hundred bucks.
There were so many cops around,
I had to disguise myself --
(takes a bite)
That’s what took me so long to get back.
I gotta say I’m impressed.
What about the cop?
How long before they start looking for her?
(holds up a walkie talkie)
We’ve got some time.
Now that we got her radio
we can listen to what’s going on.
I can tell you what’s going on.
Full media blitz, cops everywhere,
We gotta come up with a new plan.
They’re gonna find the stolen car.
Yeah. We’re gonna need new wheels.
You can take my car.
What kind of car do you have?
A Honda SUV.
Has tinted windows.
There’s gonna be roadblocks.
I gotta think about it.
While you think about it,
can I use your phone
to call the hospital?
That offer was good
if you kept the cop away.
I tried, but she saw the blood.
It wasn’t my fault.
You were gonna let her use your PHONE?
Okay. Make it quick. I’ll be listening.
Ohmigod, THANK YOU.
What the fuck?
Danny pulls out his cell phone.
Hands it to her.
Mia takes it, dials a number. Relieved.
Chill out. Her mother had a stroke.
It’s not her fault you fucked up tonight.
Shut up, Vin. I wanna listen.
(into the phone)
UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica?
Yes, hi. I’m calling to get
some information on a patient of yours?
Sure, I’ll hold.
I’m holding --
