Section 3
















                                 PB (HINDU; SUBTITLED)
                       Dude, he's starting to flip out.

                                 RAJ (HINDU; SUBTITLED)
                       He's very focused, cousin.

                                 PB (HINDU; SUBTITLED)
                       He makes a mess, you're cleaning
                       it up.

             INT. TJ'S LIMO/TRAVELING - NIGHT

                                 TJ
                       They're going to beat us there!

                                 GRINGO
                       Don't think so.

             Gringo's fingers fly across his keyboard.

             INT. HOWARD'S CAR/TRAVELING - NIGHT

             Sylvie's on her walkie. Howard's checking her up and down.

                                 SYLVIE
                       Proceed to...

             Sylvie eyes Howard eyeing her. Howard turns to the Display.

                                 HOWARD
                       Aaah...Bernard and Outremont.

             Sylvie turns a corner and continues into the radio...

                                 SYLVIE
                       Near the park. Bernard and...

             INT/EXT. PB'S CAB/TRAVELING - NIGHT

                                 NEIL
                       In the alley. There!

                                 RAJ (HINDU; SUBTITLED)
                       I don't know about this gadget of his.

             PB's Cab corners into an alley.

             INT. HOWARD'S CAR/TRAVELING - NIGHT

             The Display Beeps faster.

             Howard sneaks a peak down Sylvie's blouse. He's getting hot.

                                 HOWARD
                       Fishnet's back in, you know.

                                 SYLVIE
                       Fishnet?

             Sylvie throws him an ambivalent glance.

             Howard turns to look out the passenger window.

                                 HOWARD
                              (sotto)
                       And crotchless.

             INT/EXT. PB'S CAB/TRAVELING - NIGHT

             The alley ahead dead ends.

                                 NEIL
                       Fiddlesticks!

                                 RAJ
                       Now what, Partner?

                                 NEIL
                              (checks the Tracker)
                       Back up! Back up! Back up!

             PB throws it in reverse. The Cab burns rubber.

             INT. HOWARD'S CAR/TRAVELING - NIGHT

                                 HOWARD
                       And all I have to do is check here
                       from time to time and I know
                       exactly where my quarry is.

                                 SYLVIE
                       Your quarry?

             INT. TJ'S LIMO/TRAVELING - NIGHT

                                 GRINGO
                       Track this, GPS geeks.

             Gringo punches the last key.

             SPLIT SCREEN: INT. HOWARD'S CAR&PB'S CAB/TRAVELING - NIGHT

             The Beeping goes crazy.

                          NEIL                          HOWARD
                  What the..!?                  What the..!?

             They all turn to look at the Displays.

                          NEIL                          HOWARD
                  We've lost him!               We've lost him!

                          RAJ/PB                        SYLVIE
                  Lost him?!                    Lost him?!

             Multiple Dots move in random directions on the Displays.

                                                      DISSOLVE THROUGH:

             INT. TJ'S LIMO/TRAVELLING - NIGHT

             Gringo's Screen, with the same Multi-Dot hell.

                                 GRINGO
                       Welcome to multi-dot hell. That
                       oughta throw those bozos off
                       Action Man for a while.

                                 TJ
                       Tell me you know which one is real?

             Gringo clicks. The Screen and Beeping return to normal.

                                 GRINGO
                       Voila!
                              (closes his laptop)
                       And now a few words from TJ about
                       Gringo's new deal.

             Off TJ's reaction...

             EXT. ROAD IN AREA - NIGHT

             Howard's car pulls to the curb. Cop car 2 stops behind it.

             EXT. ROAD IN AREA - NIGHT

             PB's Cab reverses out of the alley and stops at the curb.

             EXT. AERIAL VIEW OF ROAD INTERSECTION - NIGHT

             PB's Cab idles facing one way. Howard's Lexus and Cop car 2
             face the other way. Twenty feet separates them.

                          RAJ/PB (V.O.)                 SYLVIE (V.O.)
                  Now what?                     Now what?

             EXT. SLATTED FENCE - NIGHT

             Sam sneaks along the fence.

                                 COP 2 (O.S.)
                       Hey you!

             Sam freezes.

                                 MAN'S VOICE (O.S.)
                       Yeah?

             Sam peeks between cracks in the fence.

             Cop 2 motions someone over to his car.

                                 COP 2
                       Get over here.

             Bones steps into view and crosses to Cop 2.

                                 SAM
                              (sotto)
                       Bones, you asshole!

             Bones shakes his head no and Cop 2 leaves. Bones starts down
             the sidewalk. Sam whispers.

                                 SAM
                       Bones.

             No response. Sam follows, glimpsing Bones through the slats.

             EXT. ROAD IN AREA - NIGHT

             Cop car 2 passes Howard's parked car and PB's parked Cab.

             INT. HOWARD'S CAR/PARKED - NIGHT

                                 SYLVIE
                              (into walkie)
                       He didn't just beam himself up.
                       Circle again!

                                 HOWARD
                              (sotto)
                       Some are bottomless too, as I recall.

             INT. PB'S CAB/PARKED - NIGHT

             Neil bangs on his Tracker. Raj and PB trade glances.

             EXT. ROAD INTERSECTION - NIGHT

             The Limo passes PB and Howard, opposite to Cop 2's direction.

             EXT. RESIDENTIAL BACKYARD - NIGHT

             Sam whispers to Bones as he tracks him along the fence.

                                 SAM
                       Bones.

             The Limo skids to a halt on the far side of the road.

             INT. TJ'S LIMO - NIGHT

             TJ holds up his silenced gun as he sees Bones.

                                 TJ
                       Well, looky here. A two-fer.

             EXT. ROAD IN AREA - NIGHT

             TJ shouts as he jumps out and aims over the Limo.

                                 TJ
                       You trying to rip me off?

             Bones raises his arms in surrender.

             INT. HOWARD'S CAR/TRAVELING - NIGHT

             Howard and Sylvie search the alleys. Nothing.

                                 SYLVIE
                       I'm going back to the apartment.
                       Your Dior fantasy will have to
                       wait, Mr. Hutchinson-Braunstein.

             Howard bangs the Dash Display.

                                 HOWARD
                       Honest. This is probably some kind
                       of weird meteor shower screwing up
                       the signal.

             Sylvie pulls a U-turn.

                                 SYLVIE
                       Can you get samples?

                                 HOWARD
                       Hmm. I can inquire.

             INT. PB'S CAB/TRAVELING - NIGHT

             The Boys look down alleys and between houses.

                                 NEIL
                              (re Tracker)
                       Oh m'god-Oh m'god-Oh m'god! THINK!

             Raj and PB steal sideways glances at each other.

                                 RAJ
                       These modern gismos are not all
                       they're cracked up to be.

             EXT. SLATTED FENCE/ROAD - NIGHT

             Sam sees through the slats at TJ aiming his gun over the Limo.

                                 BONES
                       TJ, don't!

                                 TJ
                       Bones, where's my black box?

             Sam makes the connection between Bones and TJ. He's pissed.

                                 BONES
                       I got it! It's ten minutes from
                       here. We can get it, now. Together!

             TJ shifts aim to Sam's spot and cocks the hammer.

                                 TJ
                       You're a liar and a moron.

             The Limo window lowers. Gringo waves at Sam.

                                 GRINGO
                       Hi, Sammy.

                                 BONES
                              (turning)
                       Sam?

             Crash! Sam and Henri burst through the fence and hit the
             ground, struggling.

             FFFST. TJ fires at Bones. WOOD SPLINTERS behind him.

                                 BONES
                       TJ, no!

                                 SAM
                       Get him off me Bones!

             Bones sees TJ coming around the car. He picks up a BOARD and
             tries to line up on Henri.

                                 SAM
                       Hit him! Now!

             Bones cracks Henri on the head. He's out.

             TJ runs at them.

             Sam grabs Bones and pulls him into a sprint along the
             sidewalk, ducking behind parked CARS.

             A BULLET shatters a car windshield.

             TJ gets to the sidewalk and aims. Maurice steps through the
             hole in the fence blocking TJ's shot.

                                 TJ
                       Get out of the way dummy!

                                 MAURICE
                       AAH!

             He ducks just as TJ fires.

             Sam pulls Bones around a corner as a Bullet strikes the Wall.

                                 TJ
                       You mothers are dead!

             Henri is groaning on the ground. Sirens in the distance.

                                 TJ
                       Idiots! Maurice, help me.

             They struggle to pick up Henri.

             EXT. MARY'S APARTMENT BUILDING/FRONT DOOR - NIGHT

             Howard's Lexus pulls up. Lady Cop waits by the entrance.

             INT. HOWARD'S CAR - NIGHT

             Sylvie grabs the keys and turns to Howard.

                                 SYLVIE
                       Fais que, this is my second
                       robbery tonight. A black Mini
                       Copper S, registered to GPS
                       Security Systems, was involved in
                       a crash less than an hour ago.
                              (leans closer)
                       I'm smelling shit Howard Bradford
                       Hutchinson-Braunstein. It better
                       not be from you or you'll never
                       see me in a Dior.

             Sylvie drops the keys in his crotch.

                                 SYLVIE
                       Don't make any hasty vacation
                       plans right now.

             EXT. SIDE ROADS - NIGHT

             Bones struggles to keep up as he and Sam run in the shadows.

                                 SAM
                       I am going to kill you, Bones!

                                 BONES
                       If we don't stop running soon, I'm
                       going to die anyway.

                                 SAM
                       I'm not going to kill you dead.
                       I'm just going to kill you.

             INT. MARY'S APARTMENT/FRONT ROOM - NIGHT

             Lady Cop hands Sylvie one of Mary's FRAMED PICTURES of Sam.

                                 SYLVIE
                       Hm. Not bad.
                              (to Mary)
                       Boyfriend?

             Mary sits with her Mother on a couch.

                                 MRS. WORTHINGTON
                       That man's ruining this girl's
                       life and she won't do a thing to
                       stop it.

                                 MARY
                       You're so wrong, Mamma. My life
                       would be...
                              (realizing)
                       ...empty, without him.

             Mrs. W knows it's true.

                                 MARY
                       Yeah Detective, he's my boyfriend.

                                 SYLVIE
                       Ah, but we girls sometimes do stupid
                       things for the men we love, no?

                                 MARY
                       She was going to shoot him!

                                 SYLVIE
                       Who? Who was she going to shoot?
                       Tell me his name!

             Off Mary...

             EXT. MARY'S APARTMENT BUILDING/FRONT DOOR - NIGHT

             Sylvie stands beside her Cop car speaking into her mic.

                                 SYLVIE
                       R-E-A-G-A-N. I want his address,
                       his parent's address, his cousin's
                       address, his doctor's address, I
                       want every damn address that he
                       has ever been at in his entire
                       life! Send more cops!

             EXT. EDGE OF RAVINE - NIGHT

             Sam and Bones stop behind a huge bush. Bones is winded.

                                 SAM
                       You used to be able to outrun me.

                                 BONES
                       Trying to book track-time in the
                       joint got pretty nasty.

                                 SAM
                       It's been no bed of roses for me
                       either buddy, but I wouldn't train-
                       wreck your miserable existence
                       just for laughs.

                                 BONES
                       Where the hell we going, anyway?

             Sam peeks out. TJ's Limo corners and speeds toward them.

                                 SAM
                       Just follow me.

             EXT. EDGE OF RAVINE/TJ'S LIMO - NIGHT

             TJ and Maurice hop out. Maurice tests a Flashlight.

                                 TJ
                       I want those guys dead and I want
                       my box.

                                 MAURICE
                       Hey Boss, why don't you go around
                       to the other side of the park.
                       Head them off, eh?

                                 TJ
                       Don't tell me what to do, you big
                       french fried monkey! I'm not in
                       the mood!

                                 MAURICE
                       You be happier if you don't give
                       this job to a moron, Boss.

             Maurice takes off into the ravine.

             INT. TJ'S LIMO - NIGHT

             Gringo's in back with a groggy Henri. TJ gets in the Limo.

                                 TJ
                       We'll head around the park in case
                       they come out the other side.

                                 GRINGO
                       Oh, good plan, TJ.

             EXT. RAVINE - NIGHT

             They stop at a stream. Bones is fading fast.

                                 SAM
                       Remember this place?

                                 BONES
                       Lordie, I can't even see this
                       place. How the hell do you know
                       where to go, Sammy?

                                 SAM
                       This was the German front lines
                       and that river is...?

                                 BONES
                       That's the Seine! And we were, La
                       Resistance.

                                 SAM
                       I got a feeling, we still are.

                                 SAM
                       Spent some of the best days of our
                       lives right here.

                                 BONES
                       Without a doubt, Colonel Reagan.

                                 SAM
                       Oui oui, Colonel Jones. Good and
                       bad was black and white when we
                       were kids.
                              (head-slaps Bones)
                       You could always tell who the bad
                       guys were.

                                 BONES
                       My brother!

                                 MAURICE (O.S.)
                              (shouting in distance)
                       Give me the box Sammy and I'll let
                       you go. I give you my word.

                                 BONES
                       Never trust a Nazi.

             Sam military hand-signals Bones up stream. They head out.

             INT. TJ'S LIMO/TRAVELING - NIGHT

             TJ drives slow, scanning the park. Gringo watches his Screen.

                                 GRINGO
                               Olly, olly oxen-free.

             INT. HOWARD'S CAR/TRAVELING - NIGHT

             Howard speed dials a number.

             INTERCUT WITH: INT. GPS SECURITY SYSTEMS/TECH ROOM - NIGHT

             Arab Tech is frantic, trying to fix the Multi-dot virus. The
             phone rings. He punches on the speaker phone.

                                 HOWARD (V.O.)
                       Where the hell have you been?!

                                 ARAB TECH
                       I have been here, working my tail
                       to the bone.

                                 HOWARD (V.O.)
                       Did you get the info on the plate
                       number I gave you?

                                 ARAB TECH
                       I must wait for the morning for
                       that. Mr. Botha is on hold for you.

                                 HOWARD
                       Son--!

             POOF! Strange noises emanate from under the hood.

                                 HOWARD
                       Son of a...!

                                 ARAB TECH (V.O.)
                       I'll patch you through.

                                 HOWARD
                       Wait! Not ye--

             INT. PRIVATE JET/IN-FLIGHT - NIGHT

                                 BOTHA
                       Mr. Hutchinson-Braunstein. I'm
                       quite disappointed in you.

             SPLIT SCREEN WITH: INT/EXT. HOWARD'S CAR - NIGHT

             Howard steers his smoking car toward the curb.

                                 HOWARD (V.O.)
                       Mr. Botha--

                                 BOTHA
                       You promised me my property would
                       be returned by now.

                                 HOWARD
                       But Mr. Botha--

                                 BOTHA
                       You don't want to find out what I do
                       to people who break their promises.

             Click! Botha hangs up.

             END SPLIT SCREEN:

             Howard's Lexus rolls to a stop.

                                 HOWARD
                       Damn!

             EXT. RAVINE/DRAINAGE TUNNEL - NIGHT

             Sam stops at the base of a hill at the tunnel entrance. Bones
             continues up.

                                 SAM
                       Bones, don't you remember the
                       tunnel of love?

             Sam through the bent metal grate and into the tunnel. Bones
             scrambles back down the hill after him.

                                BONES
                       More like the tunnel of lust.

             INT. TJ'S LIMO/CRUISING - NIGHT

                                 GRINGO
                       Oh, shit!

                                 TJ
                       In my experience, "oh shit" does
                       not mean "we got 'em now, TJ".

             Gringo starts working the computer again.

                                 GRINGO
                       They've gone underground.

                                 TJ
                       Time to start diggin', hombre.

             INT. DRAINAGE TUNNEL - NIGHT

             Sam and Bones jog through the shallow water. Sam lights the
             way with a small Flashlight attached to his key ring.

                                 SAM
                       This tunnel should block whatever
                       signal is letting TJ track me. Why
                       do you figure he's doing that?

                                 BONES
                       Moi?

             INT. DRAINAGE TUNNEL/JUNCTION - NIGHT

             Sam stops and waits for Bones to catch up.

                                 SAM
                       Got your breath?

                                 BONES
                       Yeah, thanks.

             BAM! Sam sucker punches Bones. He smashes against the wall.

                                 BONES
                              (shaking it off)
                       You did warn me.

                                 SAM
                       We're switching clothes. I'm sick
                       of this black body-condom.

             Sam starts to undress.

                                 SAM
                       Careful with the jacket.

             INT. PB'S CAB/TRAVELING - NIGHT

             Neil has his Hand-held disassembled. He sniffs a piece.

             Raj communicates in Hindu into the radio.

                                 NEIL
                       Raj, what are you doing?

                                 PB
                       He's calling the cavalry, McGuire.

             Someone responds in Hindu. Raj and PB smile at each other.

             PB hangs a U-turn. Neil holds on, steadying the Tracker bits.

             INT. DRAINAGE TUNNEL/JUNCTION - NIGHT

             The Boys have switched clothes. Sam pulls a brown bag from
             his knapsack. Bones snatches it away.

                                 BONES
                       Hmmm. Leftovers!

             Sam digs in again while Bones opens a FOIL-wrapped sandwich.

                                 SAM
                       What's TJ want so bad that he'd
                       kill us for it?

             Sam pulls out the Black Box.

                                 BONES
                       Lordie, my favourite!
                              (takes a huge bite)
                       Trust me on this one, Colonel. The
                       less you--

                                 SAM
                       I don't trust anyone right now,
                       mon ami.

             Sam opens the Box.

                                 SAM
                       The MOFO!

                                 BONES
                       The what?

             Bones chokes on the bite and sprays a chunk on Sam.

             Inside is an ultra-modern, high-tech LASER GUN.

                                 SAM
                       The MOFO. The Modular Omnidirectional
                       Focusable Ordinance. LaserTech's top
                       secret project.

             Sam takes out the MOFO.

                                 BONES
                       Oh I get it. You're the top secret
                       project, ja-ni-tor. You got a--

             Bones reaches for the chunk, but Sam bats his hand away.

                                 SAM
                       It's all about paying attention,
                       Bones. The Ministry of Defence
                       cancelled the project and ordered
                       it destroyed.

                                 BONES
                       What the hell's TJ going to do
                       with that little thing? It's
                       worthless! That bastard better
                       still be paying me!

             Bones reaches again and Sam hits him away.

                                 SAM
                       Ten Million dollars isn't exactly
                       worthless, Bones.

                                 BONES
                       Good Lord!

             Sam flicks a switch. BWEEEP! The MOFO powers up.

                                 SAM
                       The only thing it won't penetrate
                       is pure platinum.

                                 BONES
                       If he was getting half and I was
                       getting half of that... three
                       hundred large does not--

                                 SAM
                       TJ doesn't think this big.
                       Something's going on.

                                 BONES
                       Wait, wait! That doesn't
                       equal...I'm supposed to get...give
                       me that MOFO!

                                 SAM
                       Who's he working for, Bones?

                                 BONES
                       It's my gun! I stole it fair and
                       square!

                                 TJ
                       After them you idiot!

             Maurice climbs the pile but falls back in the loose dirt.

             TJ twists to get his gun hand out. PFFSST! PFFSST! PFFSST!

             Bullets ricochet around Sam and Bones. Sam ducks and sees the
             Foil. He gets an idea. He grabs it and they run away.

                                 BONES
                       TJ always said that Limo put him
                       in the hole, big time!
