Literary screenplay: The briefcase.

Fade to Black Opening.
Black text on "the case."
The action takes place in the cafeteria of a medium city in the United States. On the same street, namely the establishment left on the corner with another street, there is a police station.
Between a row of tables with folding chairs against each other, distinguishes two men sitting right in the middle of that row. The first man, who is beginning to speak, placed a briefcase on the table, while the second man listens with great attention.
FIRST MAN / JAMES Well, Mr. Morris, I'll introduce myself. My name is James and I am one of the trusted men of Mr McDonald. He could not come because he is very busy with his business. But has asked me to congratulate you for your service. You have done a great job keeping an eye on his wife.
SAM MORRIS (Curious) What they have done with it?
JAMES (Uncomfortable) That you, Mr. Morris, do not have to worry now. It is our business, clear? Also, what I am going to teach will not forget Mrs. McDonald.
JAMES opened very discreetly latches briefcase and looks at the bar of the establishment. The few customers that are in the cafeteria are back, sipping their drinks, and the waitresses are busy, preparing an infusion. However, another man, whom JAMES and MORRIS SAM not see, who sits at the table next to yours, curiously, with a briefcase carrying identical to JAMES, and listening very carefully to the conversation. More confident, JAMES lifts the lid of the briefcase, allowing MORRIS SAM can see its contents. The man at the other table, as intrigued as SAM MORRIS, carefully slide your face at the side of the sofa on which it sits. So as both SAM MORRIS MEN are amazed by stipulating that the briefcase is full of dollars, a million dollars, to be precise. The man at the other table, fearing that he might catch spying on her face away from the corner of the sofa. For its part, says goodbye to SAM JAMES MORRIS, rising from the table and towards the local output.
JAMES Well, Mr. Morris, I really enjoyed their reward with their family. Good morning.
SAM MORRIS Good morning, Mr. James.
In the face of SAM MORRIS draws a large and prominent smile. In fact, James is right. It has completely forgotten the fate that has been running McDONALD MRS. Think that you can now go with his wife and children to Disneyland, as had been promised so many times. SAM MORRIS finished his coffee and heads to the services quickly. The man at the next table also rises and so slow, can also be directed to the baths of the establishment.
When the Man with the sort of playboy and adventurer who has been spying on and SAM JAMES MORRIS, entering the service, go to the latter soundly pissing in the urinal closest to the sink, and the briefcase full of money on the flooralso on the side closest to the sink. SAM MORRIS devotes a quick glance at the man who just entered the bathroom and his briefcase, it is curious that is nailed to his. Covertly Vividor MAN puts his suitcase attached to the SAM MORRIS and, after washing your face and hair to trim a bit, check that SAM MORRIS is pissing looking distractedly toward the opposite side. Then with a swift and speedy movement of his left hand, collects Vividor MAN SAM MORRIS briefcase and heads, with firm and determined step towards the output of services, SAM MORRIS leaving the other case, which is filled clothes.
SAM MORRIS leaves the cafe just in time to see how the MAN Vividor leaves his car there. SAM MORRIS back a smile when thinking about the coincidence of the two briefcases. Then, get the keys to his car and reached inside the vehicle.
Relaxed and sitting comfortably, SAM MORRIS closures up the briefcase and his surprise is great when you see the object that has brought him much happiness in so little time is actually full of clothes.Then, his face red with anger and rage for having been removed, a stupid way, the reward given by Mr. McDonald. Dejected, slams his hands on the wheel, and thereafter, start the vehicle.
