A young boy steps out and salutes the OFFICER.

It's been a long time. We've got a lot of catching up to do. I heard that you were in the region and I figured I'd give you a call.

MAX (V.O)
I'm touched.

LUCY

It's one of the reasons why I called you.

MAX (V.O.)
And you couldn't take time out of your schedule to pay me a visit?

Well, I've arranged for you to get an early release.

MAX (V.O.)

That's mighty nice of you.
