All The Lost Souls
(zones out) .....I WONDER WHAT SHE'S DONE BUT DAMN SHE....SHE LOOKS SOMETHING....I WOULD. THERE'S THE WOMAN FOR ME THERE -MORE THAN LIKELY SINGLE, MORE THAN LIKELY ARTICULATE, FEISTY, DEMURE, LIKELY GOT NICE PARENTS, LIKELY THE 'I WANT TO SETTLE DOWN' TYPE. DAMNNNN! THIS IS SOME ROUGH SH*T. THERE'S THE WOMAN FOR ME AND ALL I'VE GOTTA DO IS TALK TO HER -JUST ASK HER OUT. DAMN, I'VE GOTTA! I GOTTA! ARHHGH....WHY DO I BOTHER? THIS IS THE SACRIFICE FOR A DOUBLE LIFE. THIS IS THE F*CKING SACRIFICE.
Have you got him in sight?
Take the shot.
In my time.
Take the shot now!
(zones out) ....all you had to do was marry him. All you had to do was say yes but you wanted the money, you eyes were blinded -all you saw was green. You had to say no. You had to shoot your one chance at happiness in the foot and look at you now. Where are you? Nowhere. Who've you got? Nobody. Now, years later, he showed you a picture of his kid and all you could show him was a picture of your "crib". He said his daughter got a brand new report card, and all you've got is a brand new sports car. And you wonder why your head keeps spinning. You wonder why there are used tissues all over your bedside. You wonder why you feel hopeless. Well, here you are. Here's your answer. C'mon! Kill him! Heartless bitch. Then you'll know where you went wrong. You can't love anyone, can you? You'll die alone. I'll die alone?!? Alone and unsure if the future lies before you or behind. Hmm....you could....but I doubt.... No! She will!
(cuts in) What are you waiting for?
Why do you want him dead?
None of your business -just do what you've been paid to do!
Tell me, George.
What the hell is this? What has come over you? You said this wouldn't happen on the job again. Concentrate on the task at hand!
No can do, George. He'll be leaving the portico soon; his coffee can't last forever. Your call.
You'll pay for this. He owes us money; £30,000 worth of it. He's married; just had a boy. We tried locating them; he hid them well. Right now, he thinks he's evaded us but an ex sold out. He's gotten ultimatum after ultimatum. This is it; that is all. Fire!
No! No goddamn warning shot. He's been given chances; he f*cked up. You do your job. Kill him!
How does this get your money back?
The money is not important. Just kill me.
(exasperated) No; him!
I've seen this coming; you're breaking. You're losing your nerve. Your job is to kill people. Okay? Kill people. Now go ahead.
I just can't.
F*CK NO! WHAT ARE YOU PLAYING AT?!?
You got her in sight?
(freezes) You set me up George?
You've had it coming.
I'M SORRY ABOUT THIS. WE'VE NEVER MET BUT I'VE BEEN WATCHING YOU THE LAST 5 MINUTES AND HAD THIS GONE THE WAY I HOPED, I WOULD HAVE TRACKED.........
What the f*ck is this? Take the shot!
.......TRACKED YOU DOWN AND ASKED YOU OUT TO DINNER. YOU'VE HAD ME SPELLBOUND BUT I need THE MONEY. AGAIN, I'M SORRY.
Don't! That was my mistak.....
(an unnatural silence -the groan of all the lost souls).
