The Countdown

INT. MAX'S APARTMENT - DAWN

MAGGIE sits at the kitchen table. MAX is leaning up against the counter. He's got a cigarette and a coffee mug beside him. Coffee mug has a slogan on it stating "Be Prepared!"

MAX:
You know what this means.

MAGGIE:
That I do.

MAX:
I think it's the only course of action we have to take at the moment.

Maggie looks up into the eyes of Max. Max looks like he has thought this one out, looks like he hasn't slept in a long while.

MAGGIE:
So when do you think?

MAX:
Soon. Very Soon.

EXT. BUILDING ROOF ACROSS FROM MAX'S APART- DAWN

A figure in black is lying close to the edge with a listening device.

MAGGIE (V.O):
Okay then.

MAX (V.O)
Let's hope that I'm not wrong about this.

Max reaches for the phone.
