Script Sides (Zephyr)

EXT. CLYDE’S HOUSE - NIGHT 6

Clyde is smoking and drinking whiskey from a glass when he notices ZEPHYR stride up to him. He gets up with a smile.

CLYDE
Ah, Zephyr, my sweet, to what do I
owe the--

Zephyr violently slaps his glass out of his hand and spits in his face.

Clyde wipes his face with a handkerchief.

CLYDE
--pleasure.

ZEPHYR
Where is he?!

CLYDE
What? Where is who?

ZEPHYR
My clown, you imbecile!

CLYDE
Hold on, now--

She grabs him by the neck, shoves him against the wall.

ZEPHYR
(through gritted teeth)
You listen to me, and you listen carefully. I don’t know what you said to him, and I certainly don’t have time for your bullshit. Now, what I do know is that it is in
both of our interests to find him.

CLYDE
Darling--

ZEPHYR
(grabbing him harder)
Don’t "darling" me. If he’s not back by tomorrow’s show, boy, will I enjoy exposing you to all your lovely "patients". Understood?

CLYDE
Wait, how is this even my fault?

She knees him in the crotch. Clyde doubles over in pain.

ZEPHYR
(as she walks off)
Fix it, Clyde. You don’t want to see me mad.

CLYDE
(shouting after her)
But you’re so sexy when you’re mad, sweetheart!
(to himself, in pain)
Pleasure doing business, as always.
