Inside TA Salon.
[ Kristyn, Hithe, Acer, & Mark
are sitting in the break room
enjoying a Chinese lunch. ]
"So it finally happened."
[ Everyone looks up at Hithe
while Kristyn makes an 'I told
you so face'. ]
MARK: What? I'm confused.
KRISTYN: He caught H this morn-
ing. With a new friend.
HITHE: Thank you. That would
be the best way to put it.
[ Acer cracks, holding back while
Mark looks surprised. ]
MARK: No way. Not at my house.
KRISTYN: Mine either. Not like
that is going to stop them though.
HITHE: Exactly. And H has been
... active since before he came
to me. Otherwise things would
ACER: I didn't know you were
allowed to do that in a group
[ Mark, Kristyn, & Hithe exchange
glances while Acer waits. ]
HITHE: You're not.
[ Pierre & his co-workers are
wrapping up their final day
of construction. ]
PIERRE: Has anyone seen the
RUDY: Really, you expect him to
show up on the last day. That
man has never cleaned anything
in his life.
PIERRE: You're right. What was I
RUDY: In fact, you pretty much do
everything around here anyway
when it comes down to it.
[ Pierre takes a seat, pondering
the compliment but not in full
PIERRE: I'm just an assistant man.
Dave finds the projects. He's
RUDY: Anyone can do that and
walk away. But who makes sure
everyone is where they need to
be with everything they need.
[ Rudy sits down next to him. ]
PIERRE: That would be me.
RUDY: And you don't need Dave
for that. Hell, you don't really
My advice. Go independent.
Later inside The Aisles.
[ Kristyn is tidying her area in the
floral department when she sees
a customer lingering near her
work station. ]
"Afternoon. Is there something
in particular you're looking for?
[ The stranger's clothes are dirty
He doesn't speak, just walks away
toward the bathroom. ]
"Manager to floral."
[ Kristyn hangs up her phone &
is shaken when she turns around
to see Syria standing there. ]
SYRIA: Sorry. Is everything okay?
KRISTYN: Yeah I'm fine. How are
things going up front?
SYRIA: Busy busy.
[ Hahn arrives & Syria leaves. He
smiles at Kristyn. ]
HAHN: How can I help you?
KRISTYN: You see that guy stand-
ing by the far right doors?
[ Hahn quickly looks & nods. ]
KRISTYN: Keep an eye on him.
At Pierre & Sascha's.
[ Pierre is taking advantage of
some alone time.
Stretched out on the couch with
his laptop, he does a search for
independant contractors. ]
"I could do this."
[ He starts to think to himself.
Satisfied for now, he lays down
excited to tell someone the news. ]
[ Much later, Sascha arrives home.
Seeing Pierre sound asleep on the
couch, she grabs a feather from
a living room table and walks over.
Lightly she tickles his nose with
it until he wakes up. ]
"Hey. I'm glad you're home."
[ Pierre sits up right away. ]
PIERRE: I got something very impor-
tant to tell you.
[ Sascha looks a little concerned,
sitting closer to him. ]
PIERRE: I decided I'm no longer
working with Dave. Today was
my last day.
[ End of shift, Kristyn is waiting to
leave when Mairya enters the
She is shocked to see the same
guy from earlier, slightly more
clean & trailing after her daugh-
ter. Not thinking she charges
over to them. ]
"What is going here?"
[ Kristyn looks over to see a cus-
tomer staring at her. ]
[ She hustles Mairya off to the
MAIRYA: Good job Mom.
KRISTYN: This isn't a joke. We
just got finished talking about
MAIRYA: Yeah. You told me
you just wanted to be inform

[ Kristyn stands in silence as
Mairya bring over her new
KRISTYN: Nice to meet you.
Does he need a ride home?
[ She hints to her daughter but
it goes lost with her agenda. ]
MAIRYA: Yeah. About that.
"You don't think I can do this."
SASCHA: No I just didn't expect
it. You've been working with him
for so long. And this is going to
take a lot of work.
PIERRE: I know but I was talking
to Rudy and he got me really
SASCHA: Rudy huh, what does
he know about it?
PIERRE: Don't worry, I did my rea-
search and I'm going to find out
Trust me. This is a good idea.
[ Sascha stays silent. ]
PIERRE: Better pay. Better opportuni

I can see it now.
[ He sits back. Taking a swig off
his can of brew, then kisses Sascha
