BIONIC WOMAN

FRED


INT. EMPTY DINER - NIGHT


BIONIC WOMAN sits alone in a smoky booth. She looks just like everyone else. Actually, she looks incredibly normal.


FRED approaches the booth slowly. BIONIC WOMAN nods. FRED sits.

FRED

Hello.


BIONIC WOMAN

(smirking)

Hello.


FRED

You’re her?


BIONIC WOMAN

What do you think?


FRED

I - I really don’t know.


BIONIC WOMAN

(nodding her head)

Yeah, I’m her.


FRED

So, Bionic Woman... you said 50?


BIONIC WOMAN

Grand. And keep your voice down.


FRED

Of course, of course.


FRED pulls up his heavy briefcase.


BIONIC WOMAN

When do you need him gone?


FRED

By Friday morning.


BIONIC WOMAN nods her head slowly.


FRED

Can I ask -


BIONIC WOMAN

Hm.


FRED

Um, where’s the - uh. Where’s your bionics.


BIONIC WOMAN

Oh, you wanna see the goods?


FRED gulps. BIONIC WOMAN lifts up her glove covered hand. She removes it slowly to reveal a single finger with a couple of loose rings and a metal tip on it.


FRED

Oh -


BIONIC WOMAN

I know. It’s a lot for some people.


FRED

That’s why they call you Bionic Woman?


BIONIC WOMAN

That’s right, kid.


FRED

Ah.


Beat.


BIONIC WOMAN

What.


FRED

What does it do?


BIONIC WOMAN smirks again. She pokes FRED with the finger.


FRED

Ow.


BIONIC WOMAN

I know.


FRED rubs his arm.


FRED

That’s enough to kill him?


BIONIC WOMAN

What?


FRED

You can kill him with that finger?


BIONIC WOMAN

(hesitant)

Yes.


FRED

Alright, uh, cool.


BIONIC WOMAN

No. I can’t.


FRED

You just said -


BIONIC WOMAN

I lied.


FRED

So -


BIONIC WOMAN

I’m using a gun.


FRED

Oh okay.


BIONIC WOMAN

And then my finger.


FRED

Right.


BIONIC WOMAN smirks again.


BIONIC

You want my signature?


FRED

Are you a celebrity?


BIONIC WOMAN

I fought batman once.


FRED

Oh, really?


BIONIC WOMAN

Yes.


FRED

Well, that’s cool -


BIONIC WOMAN

No, I didn’t.


FRED

Why -


BIONIC WOMAN

I lied again.


FRED

Can you just let me know if you kill him by Friday?


BIONIC WOMAN

No problem, kid.


FRED

I’m clearly older than you.


FRED leaves the suitcase. BIONIC WOMAN pokes FRED as he leaves the booth.


FRED

Ow.
