INT. CAFÉ – NIGHT
Detective Tzume enters a beehive of activity amongst the homeless and stands in line behind a homeless person. He glances around the room where a pairs of eyes meet his each glance. Detective stares up at the menu to avoid eye contact.
The chef packages up an order to go in a brown bag. The chef slides a brown paper bag over the counter.
(calls out order)
Sprouts. No salt. On brown. Ready for pickup.
Detective watches a homeless guy approach the counter for pickup. The homeless guy reciprocates with a friendly smile and nod to the chef, then quickly catches the Detective’s stare as they bump shoulders.
Detective Tzume rubs his hands together, anxious for a good greasy meal as the homeless guy ahead of him grabs his food.
I’ll have a cheeseburger, fries and //
Sorry, can’t serve you.
Detective Tzume stands in shock.
Midnight to 2am, I close the café for the homeless. Only time they get to eat in peace without your type staring down.
Unless you are friends with one of these fine outstanding people, I can’t serve you.
Detective Tzume starts to turn away when Sir William’s hand lands on his shoulder.
I’ll have the same Arnie. He’s good to stay, won’t cause problems.
Sir William quickly glances at the detective and winks.
Chef ARNIE looks at the detective.
Cheeseburger and fries, right? I’ll bring it out to you guys.
Sir William leads him to a table. Detective Tzume sits watching the amazing number of homeless people come and go. The outside of the café looks like a store parking lot for homeless shopping carts. The café door suddenly CLANGS, Tuck runs in and approaches the homeless guy with the special order at the counter bar of the old 50’s diner.
The detective observes Tuck wave away in sign language. Sir William excuses himself from the Detective’s table to tend to Tuck. Tuck explains in greater detail to the homeless guy (homeless Professor) and Sir William what’s going on.
The detective carefully watches the HAND movements of Tuck. Tuck glances over but doesn’t pay further attention assuming the Detective is just another patron staring away at a homeless person.
Detective Tzume watches as Tuck, Sir William and the homeless professor hastily exit.
