Scene 4: The Street

Skilling (I don't want to do it any more.)A man walks past him, completely ignores his intoxication and walks on by. (Mumbled.) I'm Jeff. Fuck off. Jeff. Where's it now and aren't talking to you when you're not even here …
Unintelligible sounds.
Another man walks past him, Skilling almost walks into him. The man makes a sound of disgust and walks on.
Skilling walks by a Woman working as a prostitute.
Woman Hey, baby, do you need anything?
Skilling What?
Woman I want to get to know you better.
Skilling Why, what do you want?
Woman I like you, do you want to go somewhere and talk about it?
Skilling They probably … I don't know if I should. I'm out on bail …
Woman Hey, aren't we all? You got a lotta money, honey?
Skilling Who are you?
Woman I'm your new best friend if you want me.
Skilling Are you with them?
Woman Wow. OK.
Skilling Are you talking through her now? No. You think I'm … You're with the FBI. Are you recording this?
Woman Screw this.
Skilling Stop recording! Who else?
Woman I'm not with the FBI, sweetheart.
Skilling Where's the fucking thing? Where's the wire –
Woman Fuck you.
Skilling Stop lying …
Skilling gropes at the Woman's chest, trying to expose the wire under her shirt. He tears at it. She screams.
Woman Asshole! I hope your dick falls off!
She storms off.
Skilling Don't you see! This is my life!
