TITLE CARDS: THIS FILM IS BASED ON A TRUE STORY (BEAT) (SORT OF) INT. DMV -- AFTERNOON The DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES. SOUTH CENTRAL LOS ANGELES. People are jam-packed into the internal maze of cubicles. It doesn't get more crowded and disgusting than this. THE SOUND OF SCREAMING BABIES IS INTERRUPTED BY A- BING. ROBOTIC FEMALE VOICE (V.O.) Now serving F134. Please report to window eight. This is the sound that the DMV AUTOMATED SYSTEM makes every fifteen seconds. A BING for each human being who waits to be processed through the system. DOMINO (V.O.) When I was a little girl... my mum took me to Euro Disney on opening day. I was told that it was the happiest place on earth. BOY looks down at the little piece of PAPER in his hand with the number B144 printed on it... wakes up DAD. They move toward window twelve. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) A week later... we moved to Los Angeles. I was told that this was the saddest place on Earth. The Department of Motor Vehicles in Los Angeles. The CAMERA PANS across more POOR PEOPLE. They look down at their numbers. Mostly Hispanic, African-American. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) They wait for their number to be called. They wait for this license to drive to yet another miserable job... dive pub... drive by shooting. (beat) That is if they're lucky enough to own an automobile. Most of them aren't. They need a license to prove their citizenship or else they'll be deported. The CAMERA ARRIVES at the last chair on the row. There is a FRATERNITY GUY named FRANCES (20) sitting in it. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) Except for this bloke. His name is Frances. Mr. 90210 college boy had found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Frances has a MOTOROLA to his ear. He seems very anxious. FRANCES (whispering into the phone) I said... they're about to call my number. Are you in... or are you out? Frances taps his shoe nervously on the linoleum floor. FRANCES (CONT'D) A thousand all in for one license. That's the deal. Frances grits his teeth. FRANCES (CONT'D) You have to decide right now. They're gonna call my number any second. Frances takes a deep breath. A sigh of relief. FRANCES (CONT'D) Alright. We're on. He hangs up the phone, then glances up at the MONITOR... waiting for his number. The CAMERA MOVES slowly into his face. DOMINO (V.O.) There are three kinds of people in this world. The rich... the poor... and everyone in between. A bead of SWEAT rolls down Frances' temple. He glances over at a BLACK TEENAGER filling out a form. Brief eye contact. Frances looks away. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) The poor people hate the rich because... well... they're fucking rich. BING. ROBOTIC FEMALE VOICE (V.O.) Now serving G086. Please report to window six. Frances glances down at his number. G086. He takes a deep breath and walks over to WINDOW SIX. Sitting behind the counter is LATEESHA RODRIGUEZ (28). She is filing her FINGERNAILS. They are VERY LONG... VERY SHARP... and VERY COLORFUL. FRANCES Kee Kee. Lateesha raises her eyes to meet Frances. He drops an ENVELOPE on the desk in front of her. Lateesha's demeanor changes. She slowly opens the envelope and removes a piece of PAPER from inside. FRANCES (CONT'D) Four. Lateesha returns her gaze to Frances. She then folds the paper, places it back into the envelope and drops it into a drawer. LATEESHA Four to six weeks. Frances glares back at her. FRANCES You said you could deliver the ID's tonight. Lateesha has gone back to filing her turbo nails. LATEESHA Four to six weeks... Frances. Frances' blood has begun to boil. FRANCES (fierce whisper) Listen, bitch. I'm paying you double this time. Kee Kee said tonight. I paid half in advance like she said. Rage is building in Lateesha's eyes. No one talks to her this way and gets away with it. In the next CUBICLE... RAOUL SANCHEZ (30), an OBESE HISPANIC MAN with BLONDS HIGHLIGHTS, leans his head over. RAOUL Lateesha... I need that web link. Lateesha does not answer. Her eyes are locked on Frances. LATEESHA Kee Kee don't make the rules. I said... four to six weeks. FRANCES I don't know if you realize who the fuck you're dealing with here. I can have your job eliminated like that. (beat) Say good-bye to your little side business... Frances cranes his neck to see the NAME PLATE on her desk. FRANCES (CONT'D) ...Lateesha. If that is your real name. (beat) If you don't have those ID's ready tonight by 8PM like Kee Kee promised... you can say hello to the fucking welfare line... cause your life as government employee is over. Raoul is persistent. RAOUL Teesha... I need that web link! The J-Lo concert is probably sold out already! Lateesha raises one GIGANTIC FINGERNAIL in Raoul's direction as if to say... IN A MINUTE. Raoul sighs impatiently and ducks back into his cubicle... cursing her in Spanish. FRANCES What's it gonna be, Lateesha? Get ready to start counting those food stamps. Lateesha opens the DRAWER and removes the envelope. Gears are turning. Decisions are being made. LATEESHA Tonight. 8PM. She taps her nails on the plastic surface of the table. LATEESHA (CONT'D) Anything else? Frances shakes his head slowly. FRANCES Nope. LATEESHA Good-bye... Frances. As Frances turns to leave, Lateesha slams a PLASTIC SIGN down onto the ledge of WINDOW SIX. It reads: THIS WINDOW CLOSED. Lateesha then unfolds the piece of PAPER inside the envelope. The following SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS are printed in BLACK INK: 774-32-5543 : 342-77-0098 : 323-34-5452 : 854-80-6745 Lateesha stares at the numbers... gears turning. DOMINO (V.O.) Love is a desperate measure. Lateesha takes the LOCKET that hangs around her neck and opens it. Inside... there are two photographs. A TEENAGE GIRL and a LITTLE BABY. LATEESHA Fuck 'em. Fuck 'em all. Lateesha takes a deep breath... kisses the locket and closes it. She drops the paper down on the table and begins to type the SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS into her COMPUTER. Raoul leans over once again. RAOUL Lateesha... I needed that web link an hour ago! Lateesha continues typing... disregarding his annoying plea. DOMINO (V.O.) Desperate measures often have disastrous consequences... Raoul stands up. He is losing his temper. RAOUL Lateesha... girl... are you listening? Nope. Fingernails keep typing. FOUR DRIVER'S LICENSES pop up on her computer screen. We get a glance at FOUR DMV PHOTOS. FOUR MEN. FRANCES is one of them. DOMINO (V.O.) The story of my life. Raoul's voice has become an unbearable high-pitched shrill. RAOUL LATEESHA... THE WEB LINK. I NEED IT RIGHT NOW! THE CONCERT IS GONNA SELL OUT! WE'RE NOT GONNA MAKE IT! Lateesha whips her head around with the SASSY OUTRAGE cultivated by so many years at this shitty job. LATEESHA (screaming out) WWW.SHUT-THE-FUCK-UP.COM The entire DMV is silenced. Raoul lowers back into his chair. Lateesha turns back to her computer screen. She aligns the MOUSE POINTER on the word SEND. She then lowers her GIGANTIC FINGERNAIL onto the MOUSE with the sound of DISTANT THUNDER. BEGIN CREDIT SEQUENCE: U2 & JOHNNY CASH - THE WANDERER The STREETS are filled with MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of DOMINOES. They are assembled in many colorful patterns seen in such 80's television programs as "THAT'S INCREDIBLE!" and "RIPLEY'S... BELIEVE IT OR NOT!". At the intersection of Wilshire and Santa Monica, THOUSANDS of falling dominoes assembled to spell out: NEW LINE CINEMA PRESENTS In Beverly Hills... there are thousands of falling dominoes assembled to spell out: A DAVIS FILMS/SCOTT FREE PRODUCTION On the abandoned 10 FREEWAY the dominoes read: A TONY SCOTT FILM On the abandoned 405 FREEWAY the dominoes read: D O M I N O We follow the IMMENSE TRAIL of falling dominoes throughout the city... through DOWNTOWN... CENTURY CITY... SANTA MONICA... COMPTON... revealing the rest of the OPENING CREDITS. As we near the end of the sequence the trail takes us out into the DESERT where the falling dominoes read: WRITTEN BY RICHARD KELLY The dominoes approach the lights of LAS VEGAS... approaching the western end of the STRIP. It is completely desolate. The lights twinkle... but there is no one there. The dominoes finish on a PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC BRIDGE that crosses the strip. They read: DIRECTED BY TONY SCOTT The TRAIL of dominoes tapers off into a CEMENT HALLWAY... leading into the shadows. A METAL DOOR looms in the distance. The CAMERA lingers on the FINAL DOMINO... moving through the METAL DOOR. INT. VEGAS SECURITY LOCKDOWN -- NIGHT DOMINO HARVEY (25) sits alone at a METAL TABLE. Despite her disheveled appearance, she looks like she could be on the cover of VOGUE. Her hands are cuffed together. She holds a MARLBORO RED between the fingers on her right hand... raising it to her mouth. There is BLOOD SPLATTERED on her hand. A small cut on her lip. A SINGLE TEAR traces down her cheek. There is a CHILD LINGERING just beneath the tough surface veneer. DOMINO (V.O.) My name is Domino Harvey. (beat) I am... a bounty hunter. Domino flips a book of MATCHES between her fingers. She raises her eyes to the GLASS WALL on the south end of the room. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) They're watching me from behind that two way mirror. What I say over the next several hours will determine whether or not I spend the rest of my life in prison. Domino takes a pull from her Marlboro, wiping the tear away from her face. The METAL DOOR opens... and an attractive woman in a black business suit steps into the room. Her name is TARYN MILES (38). TARYN Ms. Harvey... my name is Taryn Miles. I'm a criminal psychologist working for the FBI. I'm here to ask you a few questions. DOMINO (V.O.) Here's the part where I'm supposed to get all defensive and say... 'not until I speak with my attorney.' Domino takes another pull from her Marlboro... then stubs it in the ash tray. DOMINO (CONT'D) Sure... I'll tell you everything I know. Taryn removes a file from her attache case and places it on the table. TARYN Thirty-six hours ago... ten million dollars was stolen from an armored car that was subsequently found abandoned at the Hoover Dam. EXT. DESERT -- DAWN -- THIRTY-SIX HOURS BEFORE The CAMERA SOARS over the desert... approaching the lights at the Hoover Dam. An ARMORED CAR is parked on the edge of the cement abyss. TARYN (V.O.) The driver's name was Locus Fender. We know that he was in on the heist. INT. ARMORED CAR -- NEXT LOCUS FENDER (30s) is behind the wheel of the armored car. His unshaven, disheveled appearance looks totally out of place in his security uniform. INT. VEGAS SECURITY LOCKDOWN -- NIGHT Taryn is now scrawling notes on a pad. TARYN Where is the money? DOMINO I don't know. TARYN I think that you're lying. I think you know exactly where the money is. DOMINO You're trying to scare me into falsely incriminating myself... and it's not working. I said I'd tell you everything I know. You and your friends behind the mirror. Domino waves to the mirror. Taryn calmly opens her file... refusing to lose control. TARYN Is it true that you were hired to track down and capture the thieves... and then deliver them to Drake Bishop... owner of the Stratosphere Hotel & Casino? DOMINO Yes. TARYN You then learned where the thieves had hidden the money... and at the instructions of your employer went to retrieve it yourself. DOMINO He sent us out to the Fender Compound. Out in the desert near the Chicken Ranch. INT. FENDER HOUSE -- THE PREVIOUS NIGHT The FRONT DOOR to this house is KICKED FORWARD... snapping off its hinges onto the cheap tile floor. A HISPANIC MAN named CHOCO (38) is standing there with a SHOTGUN. He steps forward into the DOUBLE WIDE TRAILER HOME attached to an ADOBE SHACK. Behind him is a CAUCASIAN MAN named ED MARTIN (50s) wielding his own shotgun. As the two men part ways... DOMINO... wearing jeans and a T- shirt... follows them through the doorway into the house. She carries a SEMI-AUTOMATIC PISTOL... moving into the FAMILY ROOM ahead of the men. The tiny family room is pure SOUTH-WESTERN DESERT TRAILER PARK kitsch. None of the furniture matches. Shag carpeting. Georgia O'Keefe knockoffs on the walls. Stained wagon-wheel coffee tables. Domino notices the LA-Z-BOY in the corner of the room. It is gently rocking back and forth. A low growling noise can be heard from the kitchen. DOMINO EDNA! WE KNOW YOU'RE IN HERE! Domino turns back to the men with a raised finger... issuing a silent warning. In the KITCHEN... EDNA FENDER (60s) is sitting on the floor against the cabinets. There is a SHOTGUN in her left hand. A PIT-BULL is restrained by its COLLAR in her right. She looks down at the dog, CHI-CHI (3), with a clenched jaw. EDNA Sick boy... Sick-em! SHE LETS GOT OF THE COLLAR AND CHI-CHI SPRINTS AROUND THE CORNER... BLAM! Choco fires a SHOTGUN BLAST into the floor of the trailer... detonating a HOLE in the carpet that is two feet wide. CHI-CHI falls YELPING into the hole... cartwheeling down into the DARK ABYSS beneath the trailer. Domino turns back to Choco and sees that he still has his SHOTGUN aimed at the floor. Smoke drifts from the barrels into the gloom of the house. CHOCO (SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) FUCK... I MISSED! Domino throws him a nod of gratitude anyway. He returns. DOMINO (V.O.) That's my best friend. His name is Choco. He's always fancied me... but too shy to ever do anything about it. EDNA Chi-Chi! (desperate beat) CHI-CHI! DOMINO Chi-Chi has gone to doggie heaven, bitch! Choco cocks his shotgun for emphasis. SHELLS drop down into the abyss. He likes it when Domino talks rough. DOMINO (CONT'D) The next one is going to doggie hell! Ed snaps his fingers... and Choco removes his BACKPACK and begins to retrieve something from it. ED All we want is the money, Edna! Domino looks back at him... waiting for a signal. DOMINO (V.O.) That's Ed Martin. The most legendary bounty hunter in all of Los Angeles. He's my boss. My mentor. The father I never had. Edna is now SOBBING loudly. EDNA Chi-Chi... my poor Chi-Chi. Ed throws Domino a nod. She moves further into the family room. Edna may have shitty taste... but she isn't poor. Domino notices the MITSUBISHI widescreen. Surround Sound. DVD Player. The Manchurian Candidate is playing. DOMINO The Manchurian Candidate, huh Edna? In the KITCHEN... Edna leans over and grabs a BUDWEISER longneck from a STYRO-FOAM COOLER. With the shotgun still in her left hand, she cracks the bottle open with her right and takes a long swig. EDNA Is that you, Domino? DOMINO Nice to see you again, Edna. Edna lets out a sly cackle... wiping the bitter tears from her face. She is wicked tough... not to mention wicked drunk. Age has not been kind to this desert harlot. EDNA Your father must be so proud. (beat) Look what has become of his little angel. Ouch. That hit Domino below the belt. DOMINO Listen bitch! We've got your son! If you don't deliver the money... we're gonna wax his fucking ass! Edna takes another swig of Budweiser. The RAGE returns. EDNA YOU DON'T HAVE SHIT! Domino turns back to Choco. He has unwrapped a LARGE OBJECT from the backpack. It remains hidden in the shadows. Domino stares at it with trepidation. She's in over her head. Choco steps forward into the light and we see that the object is a SEVERED HUMAN ARM. The BLOODY STUMP ends at the UPPER BICEP. Choco lobs the arm over the KITCHEN COUNTER and it lands on the linoleum floor next to Edna with a loud thump. ED Don't fuck with us, Edna! There are at least three more limbs where that one came from! DOMINO I can certainly think of one more! Edna stares at the severed arm with her mouth twisted into a grimace of horror. Edna closes her eyes... takes a swig of Budweiser and then LEAPS up onto her FEET. She COCKS the shotgun and aims it blindly over the counter into the FAMILY ROOM. EDNA AAAAAHHHHHHH!!! SHE UNLOADS TWO ROUNDS. TWO SHOTGUN BLASTS RIP HOLES IN THE WALL BETWEEN ED AND CHOCO. EVERYONE HITS THE GROUND. Edna drops back down to the kitchen floor. Domino's face is buried into the shag carpet. Her heart is pounding. DOMINO HE'S STILL ALIVE, EDNA! EDNA PROVE IT! Domino looks back at Ed... sweat pouring down his face. He then motions to Choco... who moves out the front door. EXT. FENDER COMPOUND -- NIGHT Choco comes through the front door of the FENDER HOUSE... a one-story RANCHER built from several double-wide trailers. The FENDER COMPOUND sits out in the desert near JOSHUA TREE. There are JUNKED CARS, BARBED WIRE and SIGNS saying Keep out, Private Property, and Beware of Dog. Several FIRES are burning in metal barrels... sending smoke signals out across the horizon. Parked near the GATE of the compound is a large WINNEBAGO. Choco unlocks the door and steps inside. INT. WINNEBAGO -- NEXT Inside the winnebago are BRIAN AUSTIN GREEN (30s) and IAN ZIERING (40s), former stars of "BEVERLY HILLS, 90210". They are both handcuffed and splattered with blood. We will soon learn why. Next to them sits an AFGHANI MAN named ALF (40s). He is eating PIZZA at the kitchen table while watching "WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE" on a small television. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) We gotta show Edna her son. The Afghani nods his head... waiting for the show contestant to answer the question. ALF (IN ARABIC WITH SUBTITLES) Eat dick. I'm watching Millionaire. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) Raghead. ALF (IN ARABIC WITH SUBTITLES) Wetback. Alf wipes his mouth and turns to the back of the winnebago. DOMINO (V.O.) That's our driver. He's from Afghanistan. He once ate a cat. (beat) We can't understand how to pronounce his fucking name so we just call him Alf. The cat-eating alien. We see that he is wearing a T-shirt with a picture of ALF (THE ORANGE FUR COVERED SITCOM ALIEN) on it. Alf disappears behind a curtain. We hear someone moaning from back there. Alf mumbles something. Choco looks at his watch anxiously. He seems to be under a lot of pressure. His clothes are splattered with blood. The entire Winnebago is splattered with blood. Some nasty shit has transpired. Alf emerges from the back of the winnebago with Locus Fender. His LEFT ARM is missing. The wound has been sealed with DUCT TAPE. He is pale and delirious from the loss of blood. Choco helps Alf drag him out of the winnebago. EXT. FENDER COMPOUND -- NEXT Alf and Choco walk Locus toward the front entrance to the house. His shoes drag through the sand. Choco coughs at the smoke from the burning barrels. INT. VEGAS SECURITY LOCKDOWN -- NIGHT Taryn is scrawling notes on her legal pad. TARYN How did Locus Fender lose his arm? DOMINO He had the combination to the safe tattooed on his arm. INT. FENDER HOUSE -- NEXT Choco and Alf arrive in the doorway with LOCUS. He seems to be regaining consciousness. LOCUS Momma! What'd you do with my momma! EDNA LOCUS! BABY... I'M HERE! DOMINO Turn over your weapon, Edna! After another swig of Bud, Edna rises from behind the kitchen counter. She throws the shotgun to Domino... who catches it with one hand. ED (to Locus) Give her the combination to the safe or you're gonna be twenty- five percent more paraplegic. Ed is all business as he places the barrels of his shotgun against the man's RIGHT SHOULDER. Locus nods his head slowly. He is terrified. LOCUS Momma... I need you to say... exactly as I do. (slurring) The combination code is on the wrist... just above the palm. You'll need to get the decoder from my bedroom. Edna turns to move down the hall. DOMINO Not so fast! Domino moves toward Edna with her gun pointed in her face. DOMINO (CONT'D) I'm coming with you. INT. FENDER HOUSE -- BEDROOM -- NEXT Domino follows Edna down the hallway into the BEDROOM. Edna immediately begins to rifle through the middle dresser drawer. Domino notices a huge VELVET PAINTING of a young Edna as a SHOWGIRL hanging above the water bed. Edna retrieves a CIRCULAR CARDBOARD DECODER RING. It appears to be made out of several PAPER PLATES. DOMINO Is that the decoder? EDNA Yeah. INT. FENDER HOUSE -- MOMENTS LATER Edna now sits in the La-Z-Boy. Ed drops the severed arm into her lap. There are NUMBERS and LETTERS TATTOOED ALL OVER IT. Ed glances over at a LARGE ANTIQUE SAFE in the corner of the trailer. ED You have twenty minutes to open that safe. Edna begins to run her finger along her son's severed arm... reading off LETTERS and NUMBERS... turning the WHEEL of the DECODER RING. Domino drops down onto the couch. She looks exhausted. They have been through hell and it shows. DOMINO (V.O.) I've never killed anyone. I hope to never kill anyone. Even if they deserve it. My agenda is to kick ass and secure the bounty. Ed passes Domino one of Edna's Budweisers and drops down on the couch next to her. She takes a long swig. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) If I'm on this side of the law... I can live the low life and avoid jail. I can live the nasty and not do time for it. (beat) That's called the best of both worlds. The CAMERA moves in toward Domino's face. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) As for that other world... that 90210 world... it's not for me. On the TELEVISION... actor LAURENCE HARVEY (40s) appears on the screen with FRANK SINATRA and JANET LEIGH. ED Is that him? Domino nods her head slowly. Choco takes a seat on the other side of the couch, popping the cap off his own Budweiser. DOMINO (V.O.) My real father was an actor. He died when I was a little girl. ED Wow. Laurence Harvey. He knew Frank Sinatra? (beat) I knew Frank. Edna SNORTS sarcastically from the La-Z-Boy. EDNA Who didn't? ED Shut the fuck up, Edna. (looking at his watch) You have seventeen minutes to deliver that combination. Ed turns back to the screen. ED (CONT'D) Is that the bitch from Murder, She Wrote? They watch the film unfold silently. The CAMERA MOVES in toward the Mitsubishi widescreen. The Manchurian Candidate fills the screen. ANGELA LANSBURY berates LAURENCE HARVEY. DOMINO (V.O.) You're probably wondering how a girl like me arrived here at the ass end of the Nevada desert with a blood-spattered Winnebago and a one-armed man. To do that... I'll have to start at the beginning. Domino takes a sip of beer. IMAGES BLEED FROM THE PAST: A BARRAGE OF PHOTOGRAPHS from DOMINO'S CHILDHOOD in LONDON. PHOTOS of LAURENCE HARVEY and SOPHIE THOMAS (20s)... Domino's mother. SUPER-8 family footage bleeds into... a CHARITY FAIR... Harvey wins a RING TOSS and hands DOMINO (8) a PRIZE GOLDFISH in a bag of water... Domino places the GOLDFISH into a bowl... watches it from her bed at home as she goes to sleep. DOMINO... throwing a ROSE on the CASKET at her father's funeral. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) After dad passed on, Mum's agenda was to hit the town and find another husband with a boatload of cash. INT. LONDON APARTMENT -- EVENING Sophie is dolled up for a night on the town... CLEAVAGE spilling out of her cocktail dress. Domino is feeding her pet GOLDFISH. "THUNDERBIRDS" plays on the television. SOPHIE Be kind to your sitter. Domino glances back at a dowdy BRITISH NANNY (50s). She immediately walks over and turns off the television. NANNY Time for bed... little one. Domino grits her teeth. INT. LONDON APARTMENT -- LATER THAT NIGHT Sophie comes stumbling into the apartment with a ROD STEWART look-alike. The NANNY is hog-tied with DUCT-TAPE on the couch. EXT. LONDON CATHOLIC SCHOOL -- DAY Sophie kisses Domino good-bye at the gate of the boarding school. Two NUNS approach... and she is left standing there alone with her GOLDFISH in its bowl. DOMINO (V.O.) My mischief was cramping mum's husband hunting. She decided to sock me and my goldfish Sammy away in boarding school. INT. LONDON CATHOLIC SCHOOL -- DAY Domino sits on her bunk... staring at her goldfish. It begins to flail helplessly... floating to the top. DOMINO (V.O.) A week later Sammy died. It was a pivotal moment in my life. INT. LONDON CATHOLIC SCHOOL -- BATHROOM -- NEXT Domino stands over the toilet with tears in her eyes. She drops the goldfish into the toilet. DOMINO (V.O.) It was then that I realized God designed us all to perish. I decided to never invest too much emotion in one thing. It's always a set up to the pain of losing them. The CAMERA follows the dead goldfish down the toilet bowl and into an ABYSS OF SHIT. (Trainspotting) INT. CATHOLIC CHURCH CATHEDRAL -- DAYS LATER Domino (9) stands on the floor of a CATHOLIC CATHEDRAL with a group of Catholic school students on a field trip. She reaches out and steals a SILVER DOLLAR from the OFFERING PLATE... placing it in her pocket. A NUN eyes her suspiciously. Domino gazes up at the ceiling, at a painting of GOD staring back at her. DOMINO (V.O.) God created me in his image. (beat) I guess he had a thing for models. INT. LONDON FASHION SHOW - 1995 (POSS. DAVIS FACTOR STUDIO) (THE CULT - FIRE WOMAN) Domino (15) struts down the CATWALK at a fashion show. She looks gorgeous. DOMINO (V.O.) I started on the runways in England. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) Like most models, I was bored with life. I hated everything... and everyone. Another MODEL clips Domino in the shoulder as they pass one another on the catwalk. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) If you think America is dirtbag central... clearly you've never been to the sleaze-nation of our Queen mother. Domino turns around and grabs the girl by the hair. She screams out... clawin at Domino's face. They both tumble to the floor of the catwalk. People in the audience gasp in horror as FLASHBULBS erupt all around them. INT. LONDON APARTMENT - DAY On a BEC ENTERTAINMENT NEWS SHOW... the CAST of "BEVERLY HILLS 90210" stands before a cheering crowd at a London shopping mall. Clips of all of the actors are shown. Sophie sits on the couch with a JACK RUSSELL TERRIER in her lap... smoking a cigarette. She seems enthralled with them. SOPHIE Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Behind her... Domino is playing with a pair of NUMB-CHUCKS... wearing her CATHOLIC SCHOOL UNIFORM. DOMINO (V.O.) Mum was determined to move us to Beverly Hills. That damn show started it all. IMAGE BLEED: A 747 descends over LOS ANGELES... Domino (16) peers through the window at the lights of the city... PALM TREES... SUNSHINE... RODEO DRIVE... EXT. BEVERLY HILLS MANSION -- DAY Domino (16) is in the back yard of a MANSION in BEVERLY HILLS. She is still playing with her NUMB-CHUCKS. Marc Osborne (40s) is chatting with friends around the pool. DOMINO (V.O.) She re-married to a man named Marc Osborne. He invested in a restaurant called Planet Hollywood. We were never that close. STILL BLACK & WHITE IMAGE: Domino stands in front of a Planet Hollywood with Osborne, Sophie, ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, BRUCE WILLIS, DEMI MOORE and SYLVESTER STALLONE. Sophie comes out onto the patio with the Jack Russell terrier under her arm... sipping a MARTINI. SOPHIE Domino! Give the goddamn numb- chucks a rest already. It's time for supper! Sophie shakes her head in disgust as she moves back inside the mansion. DOMINO (V.O.) I tried Beverly Hills High for a spell... but it didn't work out. INT. WEST BEVERLY HIGH -- BATHROOM -- DAY Domino is in a GNARLY CAT-FIGHT with this BEVERLY HILLS GIRL. Violent hair-pulling. Screaming crowd surrounds them. Tampons and hairbrushes are flying. DOMINO (V.O.) I hated them. I hated them all. EXT. CALIFORNIA UNIVERSITY -- SORORITY ROW -- DAY Domino (18) stands in front of the PI PHI HOUSE at sorority rush... as a group of gorgeous young women jump up and down... CLAPPING... SINGING SONGS. DOMINO (V.O.) College was even worse. Mum convinced me to joined a sorority. It was all fun and games at first. INT. SORORITY HOUSE -- DAYS LATER Domino and the other PLEDGES are now lined up against the WALL in the back hall of the sorority house, all of them stripped down to their BRAS and PANTIES. DOMINO (V.O.) Then the hazing started. The same SORORITY GIRL has now become a VICIOUS PLEDGE TRAINER. SORORITY GIRL Look at you fat fucking bitches. She walks up to a HEAVYSET GIRL with a BLACK MARKER in hand and begins to circle the CELLULITE on her ass. The girl is trembling with humiliation... tears flowing down her cheeks. SORORITY GIRL (CONT'D) Look at this fucking fat! It's fucking disgusting!!! The Sorority Girl approaches an enraged Domino... who doesn't have an ounce of fat on her body. SORORITY GIRL (CONT'D) Look at those mosquito bites. What's it like having the body of a ten year old boy? Domino leans in to analyze the girl's face. DOMINO Did you get a nose job? DOMINO THEN PUNCHES HER IN THE FACE AS HARD AS SHE CAN. The girl falls against the wall... BLOOD gushing from her nose. SORORITY GIRL AAHHH! OHHH MY GOD!! INT. SCHOOL COUNSELOR'S OFFICE -- DAYS LATER Domino sits across from her SCHOOL COUNSELOR. Sophie is there next to her... looking completely BAFFLED. COUNSELOR What is it about sorority life that bothers you? DOMINO Everything. It is a ghastly existence. SOPHIE Why must you fight... everything that is normal? You are blessed with such beauty. Life could be so easy... if only you allowed yourself to fit the mold. DOMINO The mold? I am living among these crypto-fascist Orange County cunts... with daddy's BMW and the boob job... just waiting to implode. SOPHIE Crypto-fascist? Who talks like this?! DOMINO I refuse to turn out like them. Twenty-one years old and they're already looking for a husband. (beat) Stupid fucking cunts with no self- esteem. They let the boys control their lives. Not me. SOPHIE (cringing) Must you use that awful word? DOMINO Cunt. SOPHIE Stop it. DOMINO Cunt. SOPHIE I said stop it. DOMINO Cunt. It's just a word. Why does everyone in this fucking country get their knickers in a twist by the slightest bit of indecent conversation? The Therapist sighs to himself. He retrieves a SCANTRON TEST that she has filled out with the words "FUCK OFF". There is a big red "F" at the top. THERAPIST This is your mid-term exam? SOPHIE She's dyslexic. She's always had trouble with assignments. EXT. SANTA MONICA BEACH -- SUNSET [CONCRETE BLONDE - JOEY] Domino sits alone on the beach... smoking a cigarette. DOMINO (V.O.) A week later I was expelled. Newspapers and other TRASH blow across the sand toward Domino. A piece of an LA WEEKLY hits her shoulder. She grabs it... glancing down at the back page where there is an ADVERTISEMENT: PROFESSIONAL BOUNTY HUNTERS WANTED $99 SEMINAR WITH BAIL BONDSMAN CLAREMONT WILLIAMS III! There is a picture of a OLDER BLACK MAN named CLAREMONT WILLIAMS III (50s) staring back at her. He is wearing a THREE-PIECE SUIT. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) In the end... it all came down to fate. An LA Weekly advert strewn across a desolate beach. The CAMERA moves in toward the picture of Claremont Williams III. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) Claremont Williams III. The legendary bail bondsman. A few months later we met face to face. INT. HAWTHORNE COMMUNITY CENTRE -- DAY Claremont Williams now stands before a PODIUM on the stage of a decrepit COMMUNITY CENTER in the city of Hawthorne. CLAREMONT As a bail-bondsman... I am the go- between for the court and the criminal. For a ten percent fee... I will guarantee the amount set by the court. The room is filled with several dozen aspiring BOUNTY HUNTERS. Most of them are MEN... but there are a few WOMEN scattered about. INT. HAWTHORNE COMMUNITY CENTER -- LOBBY -- NEXT Domino approaches a TABLE set up in the LOBBY of the community center: Choco is sitting at the table. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) May I help you? DOMINO Yes... I'm here for the bounty hunter seminar. Choco stares Domino up and down. She is wearing a TANK TOP... TIGHT JEANS and HIGH HEELS. A BELLY CHAIN rests just below her navel. She looks spectacular. Choco swallows hard. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) Ninety-nine dollars. Cash. Domino drops a HUNDRED onto the table. DOMINO Keep the change. Choco watches Domino in awe as she struts into the community center... high heels CLACKING on the linoleum floor. It is love at first sight. INT. HAWTHORNE COMMUNITY CENTER -- NEXT Domino walks down the CENTER AISLE between the rows of chairs filled with the various assortment of BIKERS... EX-CONS... LOSERS and WANNABES hoping to become bounty hunters. (NOTE: Gusmano - real people casting) CLAREMONT If the felon does a no-show on his trial date, I will bring in a bounty hunter to recapture the defendant or I will face having to pay the court myself. Claremont raises his eyes... noticing Domino as she works her way down the third row... searching for an open chair. CLAREMONT (CONT'D) This occurs most frequently... because the collateral or guarantee given... to the bail bondsman... turns out to be worthless... or... uh... difficult to liquidate... (beat) In layman's terms. We get ten percent of the bail. Claremont has entirely lost his train of thought. He cannot stop staring at Domino as she works her way to her seat. The entire room full of wannabes is staring at her as well. She could not look more out of place. CLAREMONT (CONT'D) (clearing his throat) In a few minutes... Ed Martin will take the stage and begin the seminar on how to become a bounty hunter. (beat) Thank you. Polite APPLAUSE from the crowd. Domino pulls out a BRAND NEW SPIRAL NOTEBOOK and a BIC PEN... ready to take extensive notes. Next to her... a LOSER (40s) is gawking at her. He turns back to a conversation he was having with another LOSER. LOSER #1 (licking his lips) Hot damn... I knew there were groupies... but I never thought they'd show up at a seminar. LOSER #2 (to Domino) How about it? You want to ride some bounty hunter cock? Domino does not even look at him. DOMINO Fuck you, douche-bag. Choco peers through the entrance from the lobby at Domino... INT. HAWTHORNE COMMUNITY CENTER -- LOBBY -- NEXT ...but is summoned back into the lobby by Ed, who is counting MONEY at the table. He drops the last stack of bills into a MANILA ENVELOPE. Ed looks to the front entrance. There are several WANNABES lurking around the entrance... smoking cigarettes and talking in small groups. ED Alright. Time to ditch this thing. Did you take a look at the bathroom window? CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) I forgot. ED For the love of God. Not Spanish again. Who's the girl? Ed throws Choco a quizzical look. Choco shrugs, looks away. Claremont struts through the lobby and Ed casually hands him his cut of the cash. CLAREMONT Gentlemen, it has been a pleasure. Claremont walks out. ED Bathroom window. Five minutes. I'll have the engine running. Choco grunts with displeasure as Ed moves toward the bathroom. 96 FPS SLOW MOTION on Ed as he struts toward CAMERA: DOMINO (V.O.) If you hang out with Ed long enough, he'll tell you about Danang. He'll tell you about the North Vietnamese tunnel he found and the battle that ensued. This man is a warrior. That day in Danang made him one. INT. HAWTHORNE COMMUNITY CENTER -- NEXT Domino sighs impatiently... looking at her watch. The crowd is getting restless. A FAT WOMAN sitting in front of Domino begins to complain. FAT WOMAN For Chrissakes... when is this thing gonna get started? I left my kids at Chuckie-fucking-Cheese and it's gonna close in an hour. What kind of piece of shit seminar is this? Domino looks at her watch and sighs. INT. HAWTHORNE COMMUNITY CENTER -- LOBBY -- MOMENTS LATER Domino comes into the lobby. Choco is no longer at the table. Domino sighs impatiently... looking at her watch. INT. WOMEN'S BATHROOM -- MOMENTS LATER Domino is applying LIPSTICK in the bathroom mirror. There is a LOUD GROANING NOISE coming through the wall. Domino's eyes dart over to the wall. She puts her ear to the wall as the GROANING NOISES grow even louder. INT. MEN'S BATHROOM -- NEXT Domino pushes open the door to the MEN'S BATHROOM. She stares in disbelief as Choco is trying to wedge his body out the window. His ASS is stuck in the small window frame and his legs are wiggling back and forth as he tries to pull himself through. DOMINO Motherfucker. She storms in... grabs Choco from behind just as he drops through... RIP! EXT. HAWTHORNE COMMUNITY CENTER -- NEXT ...and tries to pull Choco back in. 96 FPS SLOW MOTION on Choco's freaked out face: DOMINO (V.O.) To say that Choco is a product of a broken home is to presume a home existed in the first place. No, Choco never had a home. Not unless you count the ten or so juvenile correction facilities where he spent his childhood. Choco falls to the ground. INT. HAWTHORNE COMMUNITY CENTER -- LOBBY -- NEXT Domino storms through the lobby toward the exit... pushing her way through the group of WANNABES on cigarette break. EXT. HAWTHORNE COMMUNITY CENTER -- PARKING LOT -- MOMENTS LATER Domino rounds the corner of the building into the PARKING LOT... just as Choco pushes his way through the window frame and lands on the gravel. Domino watches Choco as he wipes the dirt from his clothes. HEADLIGHTS approach. It is a blue EL CAMINO. Ed is behind the wheel. DOMINO What the fuck is this shit? Choco just stares at Domino... unsure what to do. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) Shit. Choco runs around the front of the El Camino and opens the passenger side door. INT. EL CAMINO -- NEXT Choco falls into the passenger seat and slams the door. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) Drive. Just as Ed puts the car into DRIVE... Domino steps into the path of the headlight beams and retrieves a 10 INCH HUNTING KNIFE from her purse. She HURLS the knife at the El Camino and it PLUNGES DEAD CENTER into the glass... SHATTERING the windshield in a spider-pattern. Ed and Choco stare incredulously at the 10 INCH BLADE that has pierced through the glass. ED What the... who is this bitch? EXT. HAWTHORNE COMMUNITY CENTER -- PARKING LOT -- NEXT Ed and Choco exit the El Camino just as Domino retrieves her knife from the windshield. She grips it in her right hand... threatening them. DOMINO Where the fuck do you think you're going? Choco and Ed just stare at one another incredulously. DOMINO (CONT'D) These people paid good money for a seminar! Ed retrieves the ENVELOPE from his jacket and pulls out a HUNDRED DOLLARS. ED You want your money back? (holding out the bills) Here... take it. Domino considers her options. DOMINO I don't want my fucking money back... I want a job. (beat) You take me on as part of your team... or else. Ed laughs to himself. ED Or else what? Domino whips out a pair of NUMB-CHUCKS from her purse and begins to WHIP them around her body in an elaborate display of numb- chuckery. (NOTE: Find body double for Domino) Choco gawks at Domino. It is love at second sight for him... all over again. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) Holy shit... this bitch is fierce. DOMINO I've been training since I was twelve. Knives. Guns. Throwing stars. You name it... I can fight with it. I'm a hard worker and a fast learner. (beat) Nothing scares me. I'm not afraid to die. Ed looks at Choco... shaking his head in disbelief. ED You want to be a bounty hunter. Why does a pretty little thing like you want to be a bounty hunter? DOMINO Because I want justice. I want to help put these sleazebags back in jail where they belong. (smiles) And I want to have a little fun. Ed chuckles to himself. ED Okay... Pretty Woman. I'll give you tonight. See if you can take it. Domino raises her knife. DOMINO You can save that Pretty Woman shit. The name is Domino. ED (patronizing baby talk) Domino. Do you have a last name... Domino? DOMINO No last names. Just Domino. The less you know about me the better, okay? Ed nods his head and opens the driver's side door. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) Where are we going? ED On a raid. If she wants to see justice... we gonna take Domino to the Jungle, baby. EXT. JUNGLE -- NEXT The El Camino pulls into the entrance to the JUNGLE. The neighborhood of LOW INCOME HOUSES winds upward into the HILLSIDE adjacent to the wall. Ed parks the El Camino next to the curb. INT. EL CAMINO -- NEXT Choco retrieves a MUG SHOT from the glove compartment. Domino looks at a photograph of a man named CHARLES "COOKIE" KINCAID (19). ED Bail jumper's name is Cookie Kincaid. Nineteen years old. His mommie posted bail when he was arrested for allegedly partaking in a drive-by shooting in Hawthorne. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) He killed two children. ED (throwing Choco a look) Fella takes out two kids and has the audacity to not show up for trial. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) We gotta bring him in. ED Will you speak the fucking English language? The poor girl has no clue what you're talking about. (to Domino) The boy speaks English, you know. Reads, writes, I swear it. He does this when he's around girls. Thinks it's cute. CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) I'm gonna kill you, Ed. Ed turns back to Domino. ED Tell him it's not cute. Will you tell him, Domino!? CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) Chinga te y tu mama tambien. Domino looks on as they go back and forth on each other at the top of their lungs. They are kinda' cute. EXT. TINA KINCAID'S HOUSE -- MOMENTS LATER They walk toward the front door. Ed rings the doorbell. TINA KINCAID (37) opens the front door. Ed holds up the mug shot. Tina stares at them through the screen. ED You can make this easy, Tina... or you can make it real complicated. Your son is gonna be dead meat unless you let us bring him in. Tina slowly opens the screen door to let them into the house. INT. TINA KINCAID'S HOUSE -- MOMENTS LATER Tina sits on the couch across from Ed. Domino and Choco watch as she counts out the TWO-HUNDRED DOLLARS Ed has given her. DOMINO (V.O.) For two-hundred dollars... Tina gave us her son's whereabouts. A local Gang-banger hideout up the street. EXT. JUNGLE -- LATER ON Domino stands with Ed and Choco at the TAILGATE of the El Camino. There is a SHELL mounted on the back of the truck bed. A remote control panel opens, revealing an arsenal of weapons. Ed retrieves three SHOTGUNS and hands them out. DOMINO (V.O.) I could feel the blood coursing through my veins. Shotgun in hand, kicking down a door and wondering if there was heavy fire power on the other side. They begin their approach up the hill to Dexter house. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) Turns out... my first raid was to be a near disaster. Domino reaches into her pocket and retrieves the SILVER DOLLAR that she stole from the Cathedral in London... rubbing it for good luck. INT. TINA KINCAID'S HOUSE -- NEXT Tina rushes into the MASTER BEDROOM. TINA Cookie! Coast is clear baby. COOKIE KINCAID crawls out from underneath the bed. DOMINO (V.O.) That bitch Tina set us up.

SMASH CUT TO CATHEDRAL IN LONDON: Domino (9) stands among the nuns... staring up at the ceiling. The CRAZY NUN watches her. DOMINO (V.O.) That night... my coin was tossed. Heads you live... tails you die. SMASH CUT TO CLOUDS: A SILVER DOLLAR SPINNING THROUGH THE AIR AGAINST CLOUDS ABOVE THE SUNSET. SHOTGUNS EXPLODE. BULLETS FLY. SHELLS TEAR INTO CHOCO... THEN ED... THEN DOMINO. BLOOD EXPLODES FROM THEIR BODIES. THEIR LIMBS FLAIL BACKWARDS AS THOUGH THEY ARE ATTACHED TO RAG DOLLS. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) Fifty-fifty chance. Life or death. My destiny was life. Life as a bounty hunter. SMASH CUT TO CLOUDS: The SILVER DOLLAR spins through the clouds. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) This ain't Sunset Boulevard. The IMAGE REWINDS... the SHOTGUN SHELLS fly back into the barrels of the shotguns. BING. The IMAGE PLAYS IN FORWARD MOTION... this time the SCREAMING FRENZY DIES DOWN.

Domino stares at Creep... the ADRENALINE pumping through her veins. Mary Jane coursing through her lungs. DOMINO We're not cops. We're bounty hunters. All we want is Cookie. You tell us where he is... and I'll... Creep darts his eyes back at the others. CREEP And you'll what? Domino stares at Creep. She flips the silver dollar through her fingers... her mind racing. DOMINO (V.O.) Sometimes a girl has to be naughty in order to get herself out of a jam. DOMINO (CONT'D) I'll give you a lap dance. Bra and panties on. Creep licks his lips. CREEP Awww shiiiitt.

We got the scoop on how to find Cookie. Choco watches Domino in awe from the corner of the kitchen. Ed stands near her with his arms across his chest in disapproval. INT. SEEDY MOTEL ROOM -- DAY The Bounty Hunters break into a MOTEL ROOM and nail Cookie. DOMINO (V.O.) Two weeks later we nailed him. Domino and Ed HIGH FIVE as Choco cuffs the little bastard. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) From that day on... Eddie, Choco and I... we were inseparable. EXT. DMV -- SANTA MONICA -- DAY The CAMERA follows Ed, Choco and Domino as they approach the entrance to the DMV. DOMINO Why are we going to the DMV? ED The DMV is the de facto conduit for humanity. Every human being that we track down has a record in their database. Every other database... social security... credit bureau... LAPD... FBI... relies on the DMV as its hub. Claremont has people on the inside who feed us information. INT. DMV -- SANTA MONICA -- NEXT The group now moves through the DMV. The internal maze of cubicles filled with anonymous Government employees. ED The rich... the poor... and everyone in between is a slave to this institution. Domino looks at all of the BLACK WOMEN working within the maze. ED (CONT'D) And the gatekeepers of humanity turn out to be a bunch of fat, sassy black women. Choco leans in to whisper something in Domino's ear.

Choco is swimming through a SEA OF PLASTIC BALLS... frolicking with a bunch of MEXICAN CHILDREN. DOMINO (CONT'D) So Ed. What did you do before you became a bounty hunter? ED I was a musician. Domino's eyes widen. DOMINO Really? Did you play in a band? ED Yeah. I played base guitar for Pat Benatar. Domino puts her hand to her chest. DOMINO I... love... Pat Benatar. ED Yeah?! Well... I loved her too. DOMINO Oh my God... you mean... the two of you dated?! ED We dated off and on for two years. But life on the road is tough. The pressure of the tour... relationships within a band... sometimes it leads to jealousy. Ed glances over at Choco. He is dunking a SCREAMING CHILD head first into the balls. The kids adore him. Domino looks over at Choco in the sea of balls. DOMINO How did you meet Choco? ED I found him pan-handling on Third Street Promenade. Took him under my wing. We been hunting together ever since. Choco arrives from Playland. His clothes are all wet. ED (CONT'D) Jesus Christ! What's that smell? CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) The children like to urinate in the balls. ED Fuckin' A!

Choco sticks his finger into the shotgun barrel. GANG-BANGER (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) D'fuck you think you're doing? ED Choco... what are you doing... CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) He's full of shit. Choco then removes his finger and places his forehead against the shotgun. CHOCO (CONT'D) Do it. I dare you. The Gang-banger, freaked out, lowers his shotgun. Ed swallows hard, then moves in to cuff him. MONTAGE [MARLBORO ON ACID]: Choco... in the lounge of the DMV... BREAK-DANCING.

SOPHIE THOMAS MANSION -- BACK PATIO -- DAY Domino has thrown a huge POOL PARTY at her mother's mansion. Alf floats in the pool... passed out drunk on an air mattress. On the other side of the pool... RAOUL has a bunch of his HOMEMADE JEWELRY laid on blankets for sale. His HAIR SALON FRIENDS are sifting through it. Others are getting their TURBO NAILS done. Claremont sits with Ed and Choco at a table... playing CARDS. Claremont takes a puff off his cigar. CLAREMONT Check out the luscious action by the pool. Lateesha & VARIOUS FRIENDS are all dancing by the side of the pool with MARGARITAS in hand. Ed looks at Lateesha's BEHIND. ED Claremont, you're a chubby chaser. CLAREMONT You white folks don't understand the natural beauty of a woman's figure. Those are birthing hips. More cushion for the pushin'. Lateesha winks at Claremont from across the pool. He goes over to dance with her. Ed and Choco see Domino emerge from the pool in her Bikini. She looks astonishing. ED Now that's an ass. Choco stares at her... hopelessly in love. Across the PATIO... Sophie arrives home from out of town with her NEW BOYFRIEND. She looks at the party... completely flabbergast. SOPHIE Good lord. EXT.

Choco is flipping NEON BLUE GLOW-STICKS around in his hands like a rave rat. Domino is flipping her SILVER DOLLAR through her fingers. Choco snaps open one of the glow sticks and pours the neon liquid into his mouth... rubbing it on his teeth with his index finger. He smiles at Domino, teeth glowing NEON like a Mexican angel. She laughs at this. LATER ON... Domino and Ed slow dance to BARRY WHITE. Ed lowers his hands down to cup Domino's ass. She removes them. Choco looks on jealously from across the room. INT.

FOX TELEVISION STUDIOS -- LOBBY -- NEXT Domino, Ed, Choco and Sophie are in the LOBBY. Sophie is holding her JACK RUSSELL TERRIER. DOMINO (V.O.) Mark Weiss was friends with Mum. He heard my story at some cocktail party. Turns out he wanted to put us on television. Mum was horrified at the idea and demanded to tag along just to keep me from signing anything. Kimmie comes through the lobby. KIMMIE Oh! I wasn't expecting the whole entourage. Are you guys ready? Come on back. INT. FOX TELEVISION STUDIOS -- NEXT Domino and her ENTOURAGE follow Kimmie through the vast studio. KIMMIE Now... I should warn you, Mr. Weiss will only be able to meet for about five minutes... so let's make sure to cut to the point. (whispering) I recommend speaking in short sentences. He has the attention span of a ferret on crystal meth. Kimmie smiles at Ed and Choco as she opens the door to the CONFERENCE ROOM: ED I've seen that. KIMMIE Beg pardon? ED A ferret on crystal meth. It bit this girl named Tammi right on the ass. It got lockjaw and we had to pry the ferret off her ass with a pair of pliers. (beat) She had to get a tetanus shot. Kimmie turns away in disgust. INT. FOX TELEVISION STUDIOS -- CONFERENCE ROOM -- LATER ON The GROUP sits silently around the CONFERENCE ROOM TABLE. Weiss comes into the room. WEISS Guys... sorry about the wait...

(switching to "pitch" mode) We want to follow you around with a camera crew for a week. Our pilot episode isn't testing well. We've got too many rednecks. It's too much like Cops. WEISS (CONT' D) We need something sexy... something different. We need... Domino. Ed has his arms folded across his chest. ED We won't do it unless the whole team gets equal coverage. SOPHIE You're not her father, Ed. No one cares what you think. ED It can't be just her. We're a team and we work together. Weiss smiles at them all. WEISS Sure. Okay. We'll follow the whole team. Sophie sighs loudly. SOPHIE Mark... what guarantee can you give us that Domino's name won't be tarnished? WEISS Sophie... this is reality television. What you see is what you get. SOPHIE But you can edit things... add sound-bytes... fabricate this... exaggerate that. These programs are all about shock value. It won't be long before someone gets killed. WEISS I'm just giving America what it wants to see. People are tired of fiction. They want reality. Sophie turns to Domino. SOPHIE You will be exploited. Your story will not be told accurately. Your life will never be the same. (taking Domino's hand) I beg you not to take part in this drivel. (holding up her other hand to Weiss) No offense Mark... but we both know that this is drivel. Weiss smiles bitterly. The TELEPHONE rings. WEISS None taken. (holding up his hand) Talk it over. I have to take this conference call. Weiss hits the SPEAKERPHONE button. WEISS (CONT'D) Cynthia... you changed the fucking font on the promo. Why? As Cynthia babbles on with some shitty excuse... Domino and the others are quietly debating their decision. DOMINO (V.O.) I felt like a hypocrite, given my hatred of all things Hollywood. But I'll admit... I wanted my story told. I wanted everyone to know the things I'd done. I wanted some recognition in the world. DOMINO (CONT'D) We'll do it. Weiss smiles at Domino... giving her the thumbs up. He hits the button on the speakerphone. SOPHIE God help us. God help us all. DOMINO (V.O.) It was the beginning of the end. The CAMERA MOVES in toward Domino's face. EXT. RV DEALERSHIP -- EARLY MORNING [FATBOY SLIM -- THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE] HUNDREDS of WINNEBAGOS stretch out into an endless parking lot. A GIGANTIC AMERICAN FLAG billows in the wind above them all. DOMINO (V.O.) On Wednesday morning, Kimmie took us to buy a new winnebago for Alf to drive. Fox wasn't too keen on the Impala. They wanted something that could house a camera crew. In the PARKING LOT... Domino, Ed, Choco, Kimmie and the RV DEALER watch as Alf recklessly maneuvers a WINNEBAGO through a series of CONES set up on the ASPHALT. RV DEALER (cringing) This vehicle isn't intended for high speeds and intense turns. It's for recreational use... vacations... The Winnebago skids around the last cone as Alf pulls a sudden U-turn... the back end of the RV fishtailing counter-clockwise. DOMINO We aren't going on vacation. The Winnebago comes skidding to a stop. Alf jumps out... shrugs his shoulders and raises his THUMB. KIMMIE We'll take it. EXT. DOWNTOWN GARAGE ROOFTOP -- MIDDAY A CADILLAC ESCALADE pulls up to the top of a PARKING GARAGE overlooking DOWNTOWN. IAN ZIERING (30s) and BRIAN AUSTIN GREEN (30s) emerge from inside. ZIERING We're late. GREEN Fucking Map Quest. Never again. EXT. DOWNTOWN GARAGE ROOFTOP -- NEXT Ziering and Green approach a LARGE TENT. The WINNEBAGO is parked off to the side. Alf is inside... doing something with a WELDER on the front of the RV. Under the tent... Domino and her team are lounging on several COUCHES... watching television. There is a CRAFT SERVICE TABLE... WARDROBE... MAKE-UP and a CAMERA CREW milling about. Mark Weiss is talking with Kimmie when he notices Ziering and Green. WEISS Hey guys! I want you to meet Domino. Weiss walks them over to Domino. The CAMERA CREW follows. WEISS (CONT'D) Domino... I want you to meet the co-hosts of Bounty Hunters... Ian Ziering and Brian Austin Green. In SLOW MOTION... Green shakes Domino's hand. She regards him with awe... her eyes wide like saucers. DOMINO (V.O.) Fucking 90210. I couldn't get away from it. Domino shakes hands with Green. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) It wasn't until later on that I realized mum had gotten to Weiss and pulled some strings. Ziering and Green smile politely as they shake hands with Choco and Ed. Choco is nervous... refusing to make eye contact. ZIERING We're ready whenever you are, Mark. Weiss puts his hand on Domino's shoulder. WEISS The guys are going to conduct some interviews. Kimmie approaches with a sense of anxiety. KIMMIE Mark... uh... the gentleman from Afghanistan has done some... significant alterations to the RV. The GROUP turns its attention to the Winnebago. ON THE RIGHT SIDE of the vehicle... Alf has AIRBRUSHED a GIGANTIC AFGHANISTAN NATIONAL FLAG. Standing in front of the flag are three AIRBRUSHED WOMEN IN AMERICAN FLAG BIKINIS teaching an AFGHANI WOMAN how to dance. She is wearing an AFGHANI FLAG BIKINI. DOMINO (V.O.) Alf grew up during the Russian invasion of Afghanistan. He had always wanted to be part of the revolution... but it seemed to pass him by. EXT. AFGHANISTAN -- [FLASHBACK] 1979 ALF (17) sits on a rock on the outskirts of a small village in Afghanistan. A RUSSIAN TANK blows past. Alf holds up an M-16. DOMINO (V.O.) At the tender age of seventeen he decided that explosives would be his specialty. EXT. AFGHANISTAN VILLAGE -- DAYS LATER IMAGE BLEED: Alf rigging DYNAMITE with make-shift fuses... a group of KIDS (8-12) watch him curiously... ALF stands before an abandoned HOUSE rigging the fuse to a DETONATOR... The KIDS surrounding him back away. Alf goes to retrieve the fuses from the dirt and drops the detonator... setting off a HUGE EXPLOSION that obliterates the house... his body goes flying as he is nearly engulfed in flames. As DEBRIS rains down, Alf just lays there in the dirt... his eyebrows singed off. The Kids approach him curiously. DOMINO (V.O.) His eyebrows never grew back. EXT. DOWNTOWN GARAGE ROOFTOP -- NEXT Weiss moves around to the front of the Winnebago. Alf has MOUNTED several HUMAN SKULLS as HOOD ORNAMENTS on the vehicle. Various HUMAN BONES are attached to the HOOD in an ORNATE DESIGN. WEISS Are those... real bones? Alf nods his head politely. ALF For my family. (beat) I drive these bounty hunters... for a free Afghanistan. Ziering looks at Green in shock. ZIERING Whoa. I didn't know this was a political show. Weiss bites his fingernails. WEISS I think... that the network is going to have some notes... about the RV. Domino puts her hand on Weiss's shoulder. DOMINO No notes. This is our Winnebago. It stays like this... or I walk. Weiss sees that she means business. WEISS Okay. Alf nods his head to Weiss with a look of gratitude. EXT. DOWNTOWN GARAGE ROOFTOP -- LATER ON ON CAMERA INTERVIEWS. The Crew sits across from Ziering and Green. ZIERING So... how'd you get the name Choco? CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) I once choked a man to death. Ziering nods his head politely. ZIERING Uhhh... I have no idea what you just said. ED SPEAK ENGLISH! JESUS CHRIST WE'RE ON TELEVISION HERE! CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) They can do subtitles. DOMINO (V.O.) Choco grew up on the streets of El Salvador. When he was four years old... he stabbed another kid in the eye-ball with a pencil. (beat) There were wires crossed somewhere in his soul. GREEN What kind of background does someone need in order to become a bounty hunter? ED How about a life in the military? CLOSE UP: ED'S SANDALS REVEAL A MISSING TOE. GREEN Is that how you lost the toe? ED Indeed. I served three tours in Vietnam. ZIERING Three tours? Isn't that... twelve years? ED Son, with the exception of Spring Break in Tijuana, have you ever ventured outside of California? ZIERING Many times. ED Do you know where Danang is? ZIERING Not really. ED ...THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP! INT. FBI SURVEILLANCE ROOM -- MOMING A group of FBI AGENTS sit before a set of TELEVISION MONITORS. ON THE TELEVISION: RICKI LAKE talks to the CAMERA. RICKI With us today are mixed race single mothers. Our next guest takes pride in the fact that she is in the Guinness book of world records as the youngest American grandmother... at the age of 28. Outrage from the RICKI crowd. RICKI (CONT'D) Please welcome... Lateesha Rodriguez! Lateesha takes the stage. Even more outrage. BOOS from the crowd. DOMINO (V.O.) Lateesha was one of Claremont's many mistresses. The CAMERA MOVES THROUGH THE TELEVISION SCREEN. INT. RICKI LAKE SHOW -- SEVERAL WEEKS BEFORE The CAMERA MOVES through the LIVE TAPING of the show as it occurred several weeks before. RICKI Lateesha... what do you have to say for yourself? LATEESHA I am here today to speak for all people of mixed race in America. As a Blacktino woman, I believe that we deserve our own race category... so that we can forge an identity. An OUTRAGED WOMAN stands up in the crowd. OUTRAGED WOMAN Excuse me, did you just say... Blacktino? LATEESHA Yes I did. I am a Blacktino American. OUTRAGED WOMAN First of all... you don't even look Latino. You look black. I am mixed race. I have struggled my whole life as to whether I am black... or Chinese. LATEESHA Chinegro. Outrage from the crowd. OUTRAGED WOMAN CHINEGRO? DID YOU JUST CALL ME CHINEGRO? LATEESHA Mixed race individuals such as myself and my child... my grandchild... deserve a recognized category. RICKI Lateesha has brought her own mixed race flow chart. HIP-HOP BLARES as two LOW RENT CHIPPENDALES REJECTS waltz across the stage with Lateesha's FLOW CHART. On it... she has created CATEGORIES for each variation of BLACK/HISPANIC/ASIAN descent and their SUB-CATEGORIES. LATEESHA Blacktino... Blackasian... Hispasian... and the Asian sub- categories... Chinegro... Koreagro... Japegro... Chispanic... Koreaspanic... and last but not least... Japanic. Outrage from the crowd. RICKI You believe that our government should recognize these racial sub- categories? LATEESHA Yes. Ricki shoves her mike in the face of an OUTRAGED BLACK WOMAN. OUTRAGED BLACK WOMAN These sub-categories are racist. You're excluding all of the mixed race people who have more than two racial identities. People like Mariah Carey and Vin Diesel. Where is their category? LATEESHA This is only the beginning. We must appeal to the United Nations to create categories for every permutation of mixed race individual. More outrage from the crowd. A BLACKTINO WOMAN grabs the mike from Ricki. BLACKTINO WOMAN First of all... from one Blacktino woman to another... our concern is not these ridiculous categories. Our concern is education and family planning. Here you are a 28 year-old grandmother. You need to add another category to your flow chart... it's called birth control, bitch! Blacktino Woman SNAPS her fingers. The crowd goes wild. LATEESHA I AM EDUCATED, YOU BLACKTINO BITCH! I AM A DEVRY GRADUATE! MY DAUGHTER IS A SINGLE MOTHER AND A STRAIGHT A STUDENT! BLACKTINO WOMAN WHO YOU CALLING BITCH! I'LL KICK YOUR ASS! BITCH-ASS BLACK-TIN-HO! THE CROWD IS ON ITS FEET CHEERING. RICKI LADIES! PLEASE! INT. RODRIGUEZ HOUSE -- FAMILY ROOM -- DAY The CAMERA PULLS BACK from a 46 INCH TELEVISION SCREEN in LATEESHA'S HOUSE... broadcasting the same network. DOMINO (V.O.) Lateesha was our prime contact at the DMV. Most of our bond certificates came from Claremont through her. RICKI We'll be right back after this. Lateesha is sitting on the couch next to Claremont and her DAUGHTER... KEE KEE RODRIGUEZ (14). Next to Kee Kee is Raoul. Next to Raoul are Lateesha's TWIN COUSINS... LASHANDRA DAVIS (23) and LASHINDRA DAVIS (23). LASHANDRA You were good. LASHINDRA Real good. RAOUL I liked the way Ricki's stylists did your hair. LASHANDRA It looked good. LASHINDRA Real good. Kee Kee turns off the TV with the REMOTE. She storms out of the room onto the terrace. LATEESHA What? EXT. DOOR -- APARTMENT BLOCK TERRACE -- DAY KEE KEE I have never been more humiliated in my entire life. LATEESHA Kee Kee! CLAREMONT She's right... you lost your temper... and you started cursing like some ghetto skank. You lost all credibility right there! LATEESHA That bitch called me a bitch. LASHANDRA Ain't nobody gonna call me a bitch without some payback. LASHINDRA Nobody. RAOUL Did you see that bitch's hair? Kee Kee holds her hand up in outrage. KEE KEE You were supposed to talk about the health care crisis in America. CLAREMONT Exactly. Why would you choose Ricki Lake as a platform for a progressive race modification proposal? LATEESHA You think Ted Koppel is gonna book Lateesha Rodriguez? LASHANDRA Not a chance. LASHINDRA Not a chance in hell. RAOUL Not with that toupee of his. LATEESHA Ricki is one of the only forums that our people have. The more face time I get on Ricki the better chance for a book deal or a correspondence gig on BET. LASHANDRA That bitch Jenny Jones got cancelled. LASHINDRA Montel would've been better. RAOUL Oprah don't book ghetto, Kee Kee. Kee Kee throws her hands up in outrage. KEE KEE It was embarrassing. I'm gonna get shot when I go to school tomorrow, Momma! (near tears) How could you do this to me? Claremont walks over to a METAL OXYGEN CHAMBER. The metal sarcophagus from the 80's is the housing for his sleeping granddaughter KEE KEE (CONT'D) Dad... we need money. Claremont looks down at his grand-daughter. CLAREMONT How much is the operation? KEE KEE Three hundred thousand dollars. LASHANDRA Kee Kee... this motherfucka got more kids running 'round out there than Evander-fucking- Holyfield. He can't pay for shit. DING-DONG. The DOORBELL is ringing. KEE KEE I'll get it. Kee Kee storms off toward the front door. INT. RODRIGUEZ HOUSE -- FOYER -- NEXT Kee Kee opens the front door as far as the CHAIN LOCK will allow. She peers through the crack. Domino is standing there. KEE KEE Well if it isn't Miss Thang. DOMINO Save it, Kee Kee. Where's Lateesha? We need to ID some bond certificates. INT. RODRIGUEZ HOUSE -- FAMILY ROOM -- NEXT Claremont paces around the family room. CLAREMONT I've already formulated a plan. LATEESHA What? CLAREMONT My armored car business. We just signed a new insurance policy in Nevada. There's a loophole. LATEESHA There's always a loophole with you, Claremont. Your black ass is one big loophole. INT. VEGAS SECURITY LOCKDOWN -- [FLASH FORWARD] NIGHT Taryn continues to grill Domino. TARYN Are you aware that Lateesha Rodriguez has been running a counterfeit driver's license racket? DOMINO That's the rumor on the street. TARYN What was your business with Lateesha that day? DOMINO We needed to verify some bond certificates for Claremont. She pushes stuff through the system for us... helps us track down perps for a kick back. It's all legal. INT. MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE -- [FLASHBACK] DAY Domino is behind the wheel. Lateesha sits shotgun. Kee Kee is in the back seat. TARYN (V.O.) You drove Lateesha's daughter to school... then dropped her off at the DMV. Why? DOMINO (V.O.) Her car was in the shop. Raoul pulls up next to them in his MAZDA MIATA. RAOUL Teesha... the J-Lo tickets go on sale today! LATEESHA I have the web link. We'll order tickets. You can be my date. Raoul gives her a THUMBS UP and steps on the gas. LATEESHA (CONT'D) (to Kee Kee) Maybe I'll marry Raoul. Kee Kee is shaking her head in disbelief. KEE KEE Mom... Raoul is gay. When are you gonna face up to reality? LATEESHA Kee Kee... me and Claremont are working an a plan to get same money to care for Meeka. INT. DMV -- MANAGER'S OFFICE -- NEXT Lateesha sits across the desk from AHMED (40s)... the DMV MANAGER. This is Lateesha's bass. AHMED How convenient that the morning you call in sick... I turn on the TV and see you all over Ricki Lake. Ever heard of Tivo? LATEESHA You think I can afford Tivo? Give me a break, Ahmed. What do you want? I got work to do. AHMED I got a call yesterday from our health care provider. They said you tried to pass your grand-daughter off as Kee Kee down at UCLA Medical Center. Lateesha does not respond. AHMED (CONT'D) They said you forged the age on the application for some sort of operation. LATEESHA Motherfuckin' HMO don't cover grandchildren. What am I supposed to do? The operation costs three hundred thousand dollars. Where am I gonna get that kind of money? AHMED Maybe you should have thought about that before you became a grandmother. Ahmed shakes his head in disgust. AHMED (CONT'D) You have two weeks to clean out your desk. Tears are welling in Lateesha's eyes. DOMINO (V.O.) It just kept getting worse for Lateesha. No one could have expected what happened next. AHMED In the meantime Lateesha... there are two gentlemen from the FBI here who'd like to speak with you. Ahmed rises to his feet and opens the door to his office. TWO FBI AGENTS enter the office. Their names are CHRIS ESPINOZA (30s) and DAWN COSGROVE (30s). Both are wearing dark suits. INT. DMV -- NEXT Raoul watches them outside of the window. DOMINO (V. O. ) Their names were Cosgrove and Espinoza. Someone had tipped them off to Lateesha's counterfeit scam. But that's not what they were really after. Ahmed closes the door. Lateesha lights a Virginia Slim... turbo nails trembling. INT. DMV -- MANAGER'S OFFICE -- NEXT Cosgrove offers her a broad smile. Espinoza takes the BAD COP role. ESPINOZA You're gonna go to jail for a long... long time, Lateesha. COSGROVE Unless you cooperate with us. Espinoza sits on the edge of the desk. LATEESHA I'm listening. Cosgrove glances at Espinoza. ESPINOZA In about ten minutes... a college kid named Frances is gonna walk up to your window and ask for four counterfeit IDs. COSGROVE We want to know what he's up to. Lateesha takes another drag. DOMINO (V.O.) This was the moment that Lateesha decided to do something very foolish. She stares at Cosgrove and Espinoza for a long moment... thinking about her options. LATEESHA He and his three friends are gonna hijack an armored truck. They're gonna walk away with ten million in cash. INT. DMV -- WINDOW SIX -- MOMENTS LATER Raoul glances suspiciously at Lateesha as she exits the Manager's office with the FBI. Lateesha approaches hurriedly and sits down at her desk at WINDOW SIX. BING. ROBOTIC FEMALE VOICE (V.O.) Now serving G086. Please report to window six. Lateesha tries to remain calm. She begins to file her nails. FRANCES arrives at her window. He clears his throat nervously. FRANCES Kee Kee. Lateesha raises her eyes... FADE TO BLACK: EXT.

He is flanked by his ATTORNEY... BURKE BECKETT (50s). DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) His attorney... Burke Beckett. Bishop and Becket are greeted by an LVPD DETECTIVE named CARL CUDLITZ (40s). A real fat-ass. CUDLITZ Mr. Bishop... I'm detective Carl Cudlitz. BECKETT (interrupting) We know who you are, Cudlitz. BISHOP Where's my money? Cudlitz hesitates to answer. CUDLITZ It would probably be best if you took a look at the security tape. INT. STRATOSPHERE HOTEL -- SECURITY CORE -- LATER ON Bishop and Beckett stand before a bank of SECURITY MONITORS in the SECURITY CORE ROOM of the casino. CUDLITZ At 5:23 AM you'll see that the armored truck pulled into the parking lot and turned off its engine. ON THE MONITOR... the armored truck parks. Four MEN wearing MASKS emerge from the front and back. A BLACK VAN backs up to face the rear of the truck. The Masked Men quickly unload FOUR LARGE DUFFEL BAGS from the armored truck and throw them into the back of the van. They jump into the van... and it speeds off. (NOTE: How is money transported in an armored vehicle) Bishop and Beckett stare at the tape in silent outrage. BISHOP (very soft) Rewind, please. Beckett turns to one of the SECURITY PERSONNEL. BECKETT (repeating for emphasis) REWIND THE TAPE FOR MY CLIENT. The TAPE REWINDS... showing the Masked Men emerge from the armored truck. BISHOP Freeze the tape. BECKETT FREEZE THE TAPE. The TAPE FREEZES. BISHOP Can you zoom in? BECKETT ZOOM IN PLEASE. Bishop turns to Beckett in outrage. BISHOP What are you... a fucking mockingbird? Shut the fuck up. BECKETT I just... Bishop raises a SINGLE GLOVED FINGER in Beckett's direction as if to say... NOT ANOTHER FUCKING PEEP. Cudlitz smiles nervously... giving the Security Guy a look that says... HURRY THE FUCK UP AND DO IT. ON THE MONITOR... the image reveals the identity of the MASK. BISHOP That's Barbara fucking Bush. It is indeed a BARBARA BUSH MASK made of rubber. Cudlitz points to another Masked Man behind Bush. CUDLITZ I think that's Hillary Clinton. Fat ankles. INT.

BISHOP Shut up, Burke. Bishop runs his hands through his hair anxiously. BISHOP (CONT'D) Ten million dollars... cash. The SECURITY MANAGER enters the SECURITY CORE ROOM. BISHOP (CONT'D) Don't tell me this is a fucking hijacking... I've used this armored truck service for twenty years. This is an inside job! (to Beckett) What have you gotten me into, Burke! SECURITY MANAGER Mr. Bishop... you have an urgent telephone call. Bishop throws the Security Manager a look... then takes the WALKIE-TALKIE. BISHOP This is Drake Bishop. CLAREMONT (PHONE) Mr. Bishop... this is Claremont Williams. I own the Williams Brothers armored car service. BISHOP What happened to my money, Mr. Williams? INT. CLAREMONT WILLIAMS III BOND AGENCY -- NEXT Claremont sits behind his desk with his phone to his ear. CLAREMONT Yesterday I received an e-mail from a source. In this e-mail were four social security numbers linked to the gentlemen who presented counterfeit California driver's licenses to my company late last night. Claremont stares down at copies of FOUR DRIVER'S LICENSES. Frances is one of the four. INT. STRATOSPHERE HOTEL -- SECURITY CORE -- NEXT Bishop snaps his fingers at Beckett. BISHOP And? CLAREMONT (PHONE) Well... I think that these are the gentlemen who robbed us. I'm also a bail bondsman out of Los Angeles. I can track down and deliver these crooks to you... for a small finder's fee of course. BISHOP How much? CLAREMONT (PHONE) $300,000. Bishop is silent for a moment. BISHOP And if you can't deliver them? CLAREMONT (PHONE) My theft insurance policy will have to fork over the ten million... but that will take six to eight months due to Nevada state law. (beat) But you should know sir... that I employ bounty hunters. My bounty hunters can find these thieves. Bishop and Beckett move away from the group to make sure that none of the security Team can hear them. BISHOP If you deliver these crooks to me... you've got yourself a deal. $300,000. EXT. CIGLIUTI COMPOUND -- LATER THAT MORNING The CAMERA MOVES across a SWIMMING POOL in the back of a DESERT MANSION.

BECKETT All I know... is if this joker delivers the First Ladies... we'll split the $300,000 fee with you. CIGLIUTI (PHONE) We have ourselves quite a mess here, gentlemen. EXT. NEVADA DESERT -- [FLASHBACK] DAWN OF THAT MORNING HELICOPTER SHOT: The CAMERA SOARS over the DESERT. DOMINO (V.O.) Quite a mess indeed. Beckett had just brokered an underhanded deal with Cigliuti for a few hundred acres of desert land to build a golf resort. The CAMERA CRESTS a ridge to reveal the ARMORED TRUCK on its way east through the desert. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) The ten million en route from LA to Vegas belonged to the mob. Bishop's clean reputation was a great cover for laundered cash. If the FBI could link the two men together it would be the take down of the century. INT. CIGLIUTI COMPOUND -- MORNING Cigliuti is now standing on the end of the diving board. His phone is now attached to a THICK WIRE that leads to a LARGE MOUTHPIECE that wraps around his face. CIGLIUTI Here's the plan... Cigliuti dives off into pool... PHONE IN HAND. INT. UNDERWATER -- NEXT Cigliuti swims gracefully along the floor of the pool... still talking on the phone. DOMINO (V.O.)

CIGARETTE dangling in her right hand. Showgirls plays on the Mitsubishi widescreen. Chi- Chi is asleep in her lap. Locus bursts through the front door with one of the DUFFEL BAGS over his shoulder...

Fender parks in front of the gas pumps and turns to look into the back of the van. The FIRST LADIES are there. Their masks are still on... they fidget anxiously.

First Ladies jump out... haul off in the Chevy. Locus watches these events occur in silent shock. He then sprints toward the exit... as the CHEVY TRUCK peels out of the parking lot. EXT. TEXACO STATION -- NEXT Locus rushes toward the van. DOMINO (V.O.) He was sure they'd nabbed the cash. Straight up double cross. Locus arrives at the back of the van. The doors are still open. The DUFFEL BAGS are still there. DOMINO (V.O.) (CONT'D) But they left without it. INT. VEGAS SECURITY LOCKDOWN -- NIGHT Taryn taps her pen on the table. TARYN That doesn't make any sense. EXT. FENDER COMPOUND -- NEXT Locus opens the back doors to the van to show his mother. LOCUS Don't make no goddamn sense. DOMINO (V.O.) Either this was some kind of set up... or the First Ladies got scared... decided to pull out and cut their losses. EDNA Fuck 'em. Their loss is our gain. Put the money in the safe until we hear from Claremont. EXT. BEVERLY HILLS -- LATER THAT MORNING The CAMERA APPROACHES the MANSION in Beverly Hills. TARYN (V.O.) Where were you when you got the call for the job? DOMINO (V.O.) I was asleep in mum's guest house. INT. SOPHIE THOMAS MANSION -- BEDROOM -- NEXT Domino is asleep in bed. The TELEPHONE rings.

SOPHIE (CONT'D) Call it off... and we'll go shopping together. DOMINO. But I hate shopping, mum. It's boring. Why does shopping define a woman? Sophie sighs.

Domino smiles at her mother and kisses her on the forehead... offering her a sense of hope. EXT.

Ed, Choco and Alf are waiting in front of the winnebago with a CAMERAMAN. ED Let's go, Domino! DOMINO Quit acting macho for the camera, douche-bag. Domino notices something different about his face. DOMINO (CONT'D) Are you wearing make-up? Ed shifts around uncomfortably. Choco giggles. ED Can you tell? DOMINO You're wearing eyeliner. You look like a queen. Domino notices a SECOND WINNEBAGO parked on the street. DOMINO (CONT'D) Who the hell is that? CHOCO (IN SPANISH WITH SUBTITLES) That's the crew. They follow us. INT. CREW WINNEBAGO -- NEXT Weiss and Kimmie sit in the CREW WINNEBAGO in front of a bank of MONITORS. Both are wearing HEADSETS. Weiss looks' to Ian Ziering and Brian Austin Green on one of the monitors that is linked to a CAMERA in the CAST WINNEBAGO. WEISS (into headset) Okay guys, let's greet the bounty hunters.
