The Cookie

INT. 'GOOD TOMES, GOOD TIMES' - DAY

GONER is sitting at a table with a laptop before him. He's scrolling through a website, his fingers dancing around the keyboard. MAX is sitting off to one side, a smoke before him as well as a cup of coffee.


MAX:
Anything at all?


GONER:
Just give me a few more seconds. Let the program do it's job.


MAX:
Time is of the essence here.


GONER:
Isn't that always the case?

MAX:
Yeah. But if we can get to this before the shifts begin again we might be able to correct a path or two.

GONER:
Found it.

GONER's fingers dance over the keyboard. Cut to shot on the computer screen. Goner's reflection in the background.


MAX:
Looks complex.

GONER:
Looks could be deceiving.

MAX chuckles.


GONER:
Got it! Now what?

MAX: 
(Max takes out a fortune cookie and cracks it open and hands the paper inside to Goner):
Type this in.


GONER:
(shrugs and does just that.)
You're the boss.
