EXT. SIDEWALK - DAY TESSA (female, late twenties) walks down the city street. BILL (male, late twenties) follows her. BILL Tessa! TESSA Why are you here? BILL Why—? Tessa, I love you. TESSA No, you don’t, please stop saying that, it was never… You’re not supposed to be here. BILL Oh, honey. You’re in one of your moods again. TESSA (forcefully) No, I’m not. Please don’t call me that. Why are you here? Bill ignores this. BILL Come on, honey. Let’s get you home. TESSA I don’t know who you are. You shouldn’t be here. Bill reaches out and tries to grab Tessa’s arm. She screams and pulls away. TESSA Don’t touch me! BILL Love, I’m just trying— TESSA You’ve tried enough. I’m done. You don’t love me. BILL I do love you, Tessa. You’re the only one I care about. TESSA I told you to leave. Go. Go away. Tessa takes out her phone and begins to dial someone. BILL Babe, I’m trying to help you! You’re not okay. TESSA (to her phone) Yeah. He’s… yep. Corner of fifth street. Oh? Oh! Perfect. Thanks. BILL Honey. You’re sick. You’re not right in the head. TESSA Right. Of course. Please leave. BILL I’m not leaving without you, love. You need help. I love you. A van pulls up, and Tessa stops walking. Bill stops walking because Tessa stops walking. The side of the van reads PENDLETON PSYCHIATRIC WARD. A HOSPITAL ATTENDANT steps out. TESSA Finally. BILL Honey, look. They’re here to help. They’re here to help you! HOSPITAL ATTENDANT Ah, there you are, Mr. Pinner. We were wondering where you’d gone. Remember, you aren’t allowed outside without a chaperone. The hospital attendant goes over to Bill and wraps a gentle but firm arm around him. The attendant leads him to the van, nearly forcing him to get inside. BILL What? No! I— no. Tessa. Tessa! Tessa! I love you! The van drives away with Bill inside. Tessa smiles. TESSA No, you don’t.
