Section 4
















                                 SYLVIE
                       Mr. Reagan, you've got your
                       immunity.

                                 SAM
                       Okay, Detective. Meet us at Dorval.

                                 RAJ
                       I think we have found your quarry,
                       McGuire.

                                 NEIL
                       The guy in the body stocking?

                                 RAJ
                       Says he's only wearing half of one
                       now.

                                 SAM
                       Spit it out, Bones.

                                 BONES
                       Ah, ah, South entrance...

                                 DOC DASH (HINDU; SUBTITLED)
                       ...They're going to the south
                       entrance, Dorval...

             Sam is suspicious of Doc. Sam nudges Bones.

                                 SAM
                              (louder)
                       Wasn't it the north entrance?

                                 BONES
                       Yeah, yeah, that's it. The north
                       entrance, Hangar K.

                                 DOC DASH (HINDU; SUBTITLED)
                       ...no Raj, ah, the north entrance,
                       Hangar K.

                                 RAJ (HINDU; SUBTITLED)
                       Everyone, CB's cab will be there
                       too. Let's roll. Hangar K, that's
                       Hangar Kirtibandha!

             TRI-SPLITSCREEN: INT. RAJ, GOVIN & NB'S CABS - NIGHT

                                 RAJ/GOVIN/NB
                              (yelling,laughing)
                       Kirtibandha!

             INT/EXT. DOC'S CAB - NIGHT

             Sam leans into the front and rips the radio mic cord out.

                                 DOC DASH
                       Hey, you're crazy!

             Bones presses his fingers like a gun into Doc's neck.

                                 BONES
                       Just drive! South entrance. Hangar
                       thirteen.

                                 SAM
                       South entrance, Detective. Hangar
                       thirteen.

             INTERCUT WITH: INT. DET. SYLVIE'S CAR - NIGHT

                                 SYLVIE
                       You better not be yanking my
                       collar, Samuel Thomas Reagan.

                                 SAM
                       You're just going to have to trust
                       me one this one.

             INT/EXT. HANGAR ROW/DOC'S CAB - DAWN

             Doc's Cab creeps to a stop behind a building.

                                 DOC DASH
                       Are those fingers loaded?

                                 BONES
                       You better believe it, buddy!

                                 DOC DASH
                       Do you know what happens when a
                       bullet makes an Occipital entry to
                       the brain, my friend? The skull is
                       shattered, the cerebral tissue is
                       irrevocably destroyed and forced
                       into massive intra-cranial
                       bleeding, and the result is a
                       brutal cessation of all vital
                       functions.

             Bones is freaked and lowers his hand.

                                 DOC DASH
                       The blood drowns the delicate
                       balance of enzymes and electrical
                       current in the victim's brain.
                       That's the end of human life.

                                 SAM
                       How do you know all this?

                                 DOC DASH
                       I am a doctor.

             Sam and Bones look at each other. "A Doctor?!"

                                 DOC DASH
                        In Canada, I drive cab.

             TJ, Maurice and Henri stand beside a CESSNA CITATION CJ1 JET,
             parked parallel to Hangar 13. CB's Cab is parked nearby.

                                 DOC DASH
                       It's CB's cab!

             Maurice heads to the hangar and Henri steps into the Jet. The
             PILOT does his walk around. TJ stands alone, waiting.

                                 DOC DASH
                       We are all looking for this same
                       bad man, eh?

                                 BONES
                       You got that right.

                                 SAM
                       You coming, Colonel?

             Sam slides out.

                                 BONES
                              (rubbing his jaw)
                       Doc, I got this ringing in my--

                                 SAM
                       Bones!

             Bones slides out behind Sam.

             INT/EXT. SOUTH HANGAR GATE/RAJ'S CAB/TRAVELING - DAWN

             Raj leads a convoy of Cabs speeding past the South Gate.

             The Pinging returns to Neil's Hand-held.

                                 NEIL
                       Hey, Raj, I got it back! We just
                       passed him.

                                 RAJ
                       Good news, Partner.
                              (into radio)
                       Govin, take the cousins to Hangar K.
                       We are going to check something else.

             Neil hangs on as Raj hangs a U-turn.

             The other Cabs maneuver to avoid him.

             INT. HANGAR 13/KITCHEN - MORNING

             Maurice grabs food from a cupboard.

             CONK! Bones Karate chops him. Bones grabs the apple from
             Maurice before he drops.

                                 BONES
                       That's for Spike and Larry!

             Bones is wearing Baggage Handler's COVERALLS. He takes a bite.

             Sam enters.

                                 SAM
                       Is there anyone you haven't
                       knocked out? Give me a hand.

             EXT. HANGAR 13 - MORNING

             Neil and Raj peek from behind another building.

             TJ's by the Jet, the Black Briefcase beside him on the tarmac.

                                 NEIL
                       Who the hell is this guy?

                                 RAJ
                       There's CB's cab. I'm going to
                       radio the Cousins. Wait here.

             EXT. HANGAR 13 - MORNING

             TJ checks his watch. The Pilot approaches.

                                 TJ
                       Get her cranked up.

             The Pilot heads for the Jet.

                                 TJ
                       C'mon Bones. Bring me some Sammy.

             A BAGGAGE TRAM motors from the hangar. Maurice is sprawled
             unconscious across luggage on the TROLLEY. It stops fifty
             feet from the Jet, by CB's cab. Sam is driving. He holds up
             the Black Box.

                                 SAM
                       Is this what you're looking for, TJ?

                                 TJ
                       Depends what's inside. Where's
                       your moronic friend?

                                 SAM
                       Plans changed. Bones had a sudden
                       change of heart. Call it a
                       business disagreement.

                                 TJ
                       I didn't know janitors ate their
                       own, Sammy.

             Sam steps off the Tram with the Box and takes a few steps.

                                 SAM
                       The money's everything, TJ. You
                       know that.

             TJ grabs the Briefcase at his feet and holds it up.

                                 TJ
                       Let's get this over with.

             They each unlatch their cases. Sam opens his. TJ opens his.

             Both cases are empty! TJ pulls his gun.

                                 TJ
                       You're way out of your league, Sam.

             Bones pops out from the back of the Tram aiming the MOFO.

                                 BONES
                       Did you think you were dealing
                       with morons, you...you moron!?

             Sirens in the distance. Sam smiles at TJ.

                                 TJ
                       This is your plan? Ces cochons and
                       this pathetic loser?

             TJ backs up toward the Jet, keeping his gun on Sam. Sam
             presses forward, fearless.

                                 TJ
                       No Sam, you need a true ace in the
                       hole if you're gonna have a back-
                       up plan with any balls!

             Neil jumps out from behind the CB'S Cab.

                                 NEIL
                       Mine! Mine! Mine!

             Neil tackles Bones and they smash into Maurice. They tumble
             with the luggage to the ground. Maurice groans, coming to.

             The Jet revs up and inches away. Henri holds the door open.

             Maurice joins the fray. They all wrestle for the MOFO.

                                 TJ
                       Get that MOFO, Maurice!

             Maurice nails Bones and the MOFO goes flying.

             The Laser slides to Neil. His eyes widen as he picks it up.

                                 NEIL
                       It's mine!

             BONK! Bones whacks Neil unconscious with a suitcase.

             Maurice sees Bones picking up the MOFO and TWO Police cars
             speeding through the entrance in the distance. He turns and
             sprints toward the Jet, past Sam.

             TJ catches up to the Jet door. Sam maintains his distance,
             never taking his eyes off TJ.

             Bones races after Maurice. BWEEP. He powers up the MOFO.

                                 BONES
                       Come back here you...you cheater!

             Bones stops beside Sam, aiming the Laser at TJ.

             Henri drags Mary to the door and holds his gun to her head.

                                 SAM
                       Bones! No!

             Bones sees Mary right behind TJ as Maurice climbs aboard.

                                 BONES
                       Oh my Lord!

                                 TJ
                       The girl for the MOFO, Sam. If you
                       want to keep her alive, meet me in
                       Kingston at the Blue Water Hotel
                       by five o'clock tonight.

             As the Jet revs up, TJ jumps in the door behind Maurice.

             Sam closes the Black Box and bolts toward the Jet.

                                 BONES
                       Sam!

             Raj and Doc's Cabs skid to a stop on either side of Bones.

                                 BONES/RAJ
                       It's you!

             Doc yells to Raj.

                                 DOC DASH
                       He's with the good guy!

                                 RAJ
                       That's crazy!
                              (to Bones)
                       Get in!

             TWO COP CARS approach in the distance.

             EXT. RUNWAY - MORNING

             Sam runs full out. The Jet turns onto the runway.

             Henri struggles to fold the stairs onto the door.

             Sam jumps on the wing. He scrambles across. The engines
             scream behind him on the tail.

             Henri locks the stairs to the door. He laughs at Sam as he
             reaches to close the door.

             Sam dives. BAM! He jams the Box in the Jet door just as Henri
             swings it shut.

             Sam holds onto the door frame. He's buffeted sideways by the
             wind and the updraft from the engine.

             Henri shoulders open the door and kicks the Box inside. He
             starts banging on Sam's fingers.

                                 TJ
                              (behind Henri)
                       Close the door dummy! We're
                       running out of runway!

             OOF! Sam takes a kick to his out-stretched stomach. SMASH!
             Henri slams Sam's head against the side of the Jet.

             Sam lets go. He slides back but snags onto the wing.

             Henri closes the door.

             Sam sees Mary in the window. Mary's drugged and confused by
             the sight of Sam. Sam mouths, "I love you."

             The engines scream louder as the Jet picks up speed.

             Raj pulls up alongside Doc's Cab. Bones waves for Sam to jump.

                                 SAM
                       Are you crazy?!

             The two Cabs race along together behind the Jet.

             SEVEN other CABS converge with Raj and Doc's Cabs, blocking
             out the two Cop cars trailing in hot pursuit.

             INTERCUT WITH: INT. DET. SYLVIE'S CAR - MORNING

             Sylvie dodges back and forth around the Cab convoy trying to
             get closer to the Jet.

                                 SYLVIE
                              (shouting into PA)
                       Stop that Jet! Stop those cabs!
                       Arreter! Arreter! Arreter!

             Sylvie watches as...

             Sam readies himself. Doc inches closer.

             Sam releases and flies onto the hood of Doc's Cab. Doc weaves.

                                 BONES
                       Hold on, Colonel!

             The Jet rockets away and lifts-off.

             The seven Cabs fall in formation around Doc and Raj's Cabs.

             Doc slows a bit and Raj pulls up alongside.

             Raj positions his Cab so his back window is beside Sam, a
             foot away. Raj waves him over.

             Sam looks at Doc and Bones. Yes! Yes! They wave him on.

             Sam dives across, into Raj's Cab.

             INT/EXT. RAJ'S CAB/RUNWAY - MORNING

             Sam lands on the back seat.

                                 BONES
                       Nice jump. The Indian judges give
                       you a nine-five.

                                 RAJ (HINDU; SUBTITLED)
                       Chakrabaneha!

             SIX-SPLIT SCREEN: INT. ALL CABS/TRAVELING - MORNING

                                 ALL THE CABBIES
                              (yelling, laughing)
                       Chadrabaneha!

             END SIX-SPLIT SCREEN:

             The Cabs break formation and weave and circle each other.

             INTERCUT WITH: INT/EXT. SYLVIE'S CAR - MORNING

             Sylvie tries to locate Sam in the muddle of Cabs.

                                 SYLVIE
                             (on walkie to other car)
                       Which cab is he in?!

             Sylvie shouts over her car's PA.

                                 SYLVIE
                       Montreal Police! Stop your cabs!

                                 SAM
                       Mary's dead if the cops stop us!

                                 RAJ
                       Get down, friends! Hide!

             Sam and Bones duck in the back seat.

             From overhead it looks like a traveling shell game.

                                 SYLVIE
                       I can't tell which cab is which!

             The Cabs disperse in all directions.

                                 SYLVIE
                       Left! No, right!

             The Cop cars swerve to follow three Cabs that have split off.

                                 SYLVIE (O.S.)
                       AAAH!

             EXT. DORVAL/END OF A RUNWAY - MORNING

                                 SAM/BONES/RAJ (O.S.)
                       AAAH!

             Raj's Cab slams through a chain-link gate and bounces through
             a field and away.

             EXT. HANGAR 13 - MORNING

             Neil comes to. The Tracker is beside him, the Beeps fading.
             Neil sees TJ's Jet disappear in the sky. Neil turns and sees
             the AIR TRAFFIC TOWER in the distance.

             EXT. TARMAC NEAR SOUTH GATE - DAY

             The Cabs are lined up, Cabbies in front. Sylvie paces.

                                 SYLVIE
                       I know he was in one of your cabs
                       and I promise...
                            (nose to nose with Doc)
                       ...that each one of your cab
                       licences will be revoked unless
                       somebody tells me, maintenant,
                       where is Sam Reagan!

             The Cabbies exchange looks then burst into rapid-fire Hindu.

             Off Sylvie...

             INT. AIR-TRAFFIC CONTROL TOWER - DAY

             Neil is talking with an Air Traffic CONTROLLER. He shakes the
             Controller's hand and leaves.

             INT/EXT. RAJ'S CAB/TRAVELING - DAY

             The Cab races onto the highway. A sign: Kingston 120 kms.

             Bones turns, shocked to see at the side of the road...

             Spike and Larry fixing a flat on Howard's Lexus.

                                 SAM
                       But Bones, he's got Mary!

                                 BONES
                       My brother, I swear! I don't know
                       anything about Kingston. I'm not
                       exactly TJ'S confidant.

                                 BONES
                       But you know what? Kingston makes
                       sense.

             Sam is deep in thought.

                                 BONES
                       It's close to the border. From
                       there he can slip into the States.
                       Or a quick run down the St.
                       Lawrence and...Poof. Gone.

                                 SAM
                       Hey Raj, what's the idea of you
                       and that tracker guy attacking me
                       last night?

                                 RAJ
                       I am very, very sorry about that,
                       partner. The Doctor explained
                       everything to me at the airport.
                       Now we all are certain who the bad
                       man really is.
                              (sneers at Bones)
                       And who is the crazy person.

                                 BONES
                       Got any change, Raj?

                                 RAJ
                       McGuire still thinks you're the
                       bad guy, Sam. And he is a
                       persistent son of a gun.

                                 SAM
                       Bones, where is the gun?

             Bones slides his hand into his pants and pulls out the MOFO.

                                 BONES
                       Safe and sound, dog. Wait a sec.
                       There's no foil. Can't we be tracked?

             Sam grabs the Laser and powers it off.

             Bones swallows hard, rubbing his crotch.

                                 SAM
                       You could have blown off your--

             INT. TJ'S JET/IN-FLIGHT - DAY

                                 MAURICE
                       Monsieur Johnson?

             Maurice picks up the Black Box off a seat and holds it up.

                                 TJ
                       Trash it.

             Maurice carries it to the garbage. Maurice likes the Black
             Box. He opens a closet and stuffs it in his SPORTS BAG.

             INT. HOWARD'S HOME/MASTER BEDROOM - DAY

             Howard, in PJ's and an eye-mask, hits the bed...Ring!!!

                                 HOWARD
                              (on the phone; drowsy)
                       This is Howard Braunst...Howard
                       Bradson...Son of a... Hello.

             INTERCUT WITH:INT.DORVAL AIRPORT/NEAR TICKET COUNTERS-DAY

             Neil, on his cell, holds two plane TICKETS. His Tracker Pings.

                                 NEIL
                       It's McGuire Neil, sir. I have
                       picked up the scent again.

             Howard pushes the mask up. His comb-over stands straight.

             EXT. BLUE WATER MOTEL/KINGSTON, ONT. - DAY

             Raj's Cab stops at the door. A sign welcomes the:
             THIRD ANNUAL RAINBOW TEAM BRIDGE CONVENTION

             INT. BLUE WATER MOTEL/KINGSTON, ONT. - DAY

             Sam and Bones head for the front desk. Every flavour of
             LESBIAN Bridge Player hovers with their luggage.

                                 SAM
                       This isn't looking very TJ-ish.

                                 BONES
                       More like a Snap On Tool
                       convention. No, wait, it's
                       perfect. Who would suspect a major
                       weapons deal--

                                 SAM
                       Shh!

                                 BONES
                              (quieter)
                       --to go down in a place like this.
                       It's low-profile, busy...

             Sam and Bones pass a BUTCH/FEMME COUPLE with their SUITCASE
             and VANITY. They're a spooky incarnation of Sam and Bones!

                                 BONES
                       ...oh my Lord!...uh it's busy and--

                                 SAM
                       Bones. I get it. Let's see if he
                       checked in.

             INT. HOWARD'S FOYER - DAY

             DING-DONG. Howard opens the door. His comb over's a disaster.

                                 GOVINDAPPA
                       You have requested a cab, sir?

             EXT. HOWARD'S HOUSE - DAY

             Govin's Cab takes off with Howard in back, passing Lady Cop
             in plain clothes parked in an Unmarked car.

             INT/EXT. LADY COP'S CAR - DAY

                                 LADY COP
                              (on radio)
                       He's taking a cab!

             Lady Cop takes off in pursuit.

             INT. AIRPORT/DEPARTURE AREA - MORNING

             Sylvie listens through her ear-piece.

                                 LADY COP (V.O.)
                       And he's got luggage.

             Sylvie's pissed.

             In the distance, behind Sylvie...

             Neil's laid out across a bench, snoring. His Tracker is
             propped under his head. A pissed off OLD LADY is squeezed
             between his head and the arm rest.

             Neil shifts, squeezing her more. The Old Lady whacks his head
             with her paper. He shifts but doesn't wake.

             INT. BLUE WATER MOTEL/FRONT DESK - DAY

             Sam and Bones sidle up next to some more colourful FOLKS.

                                 SAM
                       Can you tell me if a Mr. TJ has
                       checked in?

             The Snooty DESK CLERK fiddles on his computer.

                                 SNOOTY DESK CLERK
                       No Mister TJ. Ah, I have two
                       Mister BJ's though.

                                 SAM
                              (aside, to Bones)
                       Try his real name.

                                 BONES
                       Well, do you have a Mister Tyrone
                       Johnson?

             Snooty gives them a look then fiddles some more.

                                 SNOOTY DESK CLERK
                       We have a Johnson and Johnson, a
                       Howard's Johnson and a Michelle
                       Jackson, but no Tyrone Johnson.

             Sam and Bones turn their back to Snooty.

                                 BONES
                       I'm going to try his real, real
                       name.

                                 SAM
                       Somebody's gotta pop this guy!

             They turn back. Snooty is looking extra snooty now.

                                 BONES
                       Can you check for a Mr. Marion
                       Butterworth?

                                 SNOOTY DESK CLERK
                       You two Homos got nothing better
                       to do than to play 50 Names with
                       me all day? Can't you see I'm busy!

             Sam reaches across the counter and grabs Snooty by the jacket.

                                 SAM
                       Get me the manager!

             The huge Black RASTAFARIAN MANAGER steps over to the scuffle.

                                 RASTAFARIAN MANAGER
                       Hey, man. Welcome to Kingston.

             Sam and Bones look at each other.

                          SAM                           BONES
                  Jamaica!                      Hotel!

             They walk away from the counter, freaked.

             Sam looks around thinking.

                                 BONES
                       What are we gonna... How the hell
                       can we get to Jamaica by five?

                                 SAM
                       I got a plan.

             Sam leads them away.

             The Butch/Femme Couple are turned away. Sam nods toward their
             bags, behind them. As they fly by, Sam grabs the Suitcase and
             Bones snags the Vanity. They slip away.

             INT/EXT. BLUE WATER MOTEL - DAY

             Raj's jaw drops as a Flamboyant Duo gets out of a CAB nearby.

             Sam and Bones scoot out the front door and hop in Raj's Cab.

                                 SAM
                       Raj, back to Dorval. Quick!

             Raj guns it as Bones checks the bags.

                                 BONES
                       Hmm, Gucci. They looked more like
                       the Louis Vitton type to me.

             INT. AIRPORT/DEPARTURE AREA - DAY

             Neil is asleep. He is seriously bruised and battered from a
             night of pummelling. A hand taps him on the head.

             It's Howard. He wakes Neil who is lying on the floor in front
             of the bench. The Old Lady smirks.

             Neil struggles awake.

             INT. AIRPORT/DEPARTURE AREA/WASHROOMS - DAY

             Neil and Howard exit.

                                 HOWARD
                       Where are we going?

                                 NEIL
                       To check through security.

                                 HOWARD
                       Not that, going. Where are we
                       flying to?

                                 NEIL
                       Oh. Our quarry has flown to
                       Kingston, Jamaica.

             They pass Lady Cop as he speaks. She watches Howard's ass a
             moment, then catches herself. She whispers into her collar.

                                 LADY COP
                       They're going to ...

             INT. AIRPORT/TICKET COUNTERS - DAY

             Sylvie listens to her ear piece then tells the TICKET AGENT...

                                 SYLVIE
                       Kingston, Jamaica, return.

             INT. RAJ'S CAB/TRAVELING - DAY

             Bones head grooves to Raj's Indian music tape.

             Sam hangs up his cell. He passes a note to Raj, beside him.

                                 RAJ
                              (into radio)
                       Dispatch, phone the Doctor. Tell
                       him to see the lady at 3420 Rue
                       Durocher. She'll be out front.

             Bones fishes through the Suitcases laid out on the back seat.
             He unfolds a white raw silk jacket and hands it to Sam. Bones
             digs in again and pulls out a studded leather bra.

             INT. AIRPLANE/FIRST CLASS - DAY

             Howard and Neil move through first class and into economy.

             INT. AIRPLANE/ECONOMY - DAY

             The plane is filling up. Neil and Howard work their way
             around PASSENGERS storing luggage and getting settled.

             Neil trips and catches himself on a PRIEST'S shoulder.

                                 NEIL
                       For the love of Mike!

             The Priest crosses himself. Neil is embarrassed.

             Neil turns to see what tripped him. The Old Lady smirks as
             she slides her cane back.

             Neil stops at his row. Howard continues back further. Neil
             plops into the middle seat and makes himself cozy.

             EXT. MARY'S APARTMENT BUILDING - DAY

             Mrs. W, Envelope in hand, paces in the drive.

             Doc pulls up, hops out and races around to open her door.

             Mrs. W gives him the once-over.

             Doc gives her a smile. Sparks are flying.

             Mrs. W. waves at him to hurry and gets in the Cab.

             Doc races back and hops in. The Cab speeds away.

             INT. AIRPLANE/ECONOMY - DAY

             Howard falls into his window seat. He pulls out his mask and
             covers his eyes. He starts to snore.

             INT. AIRPORT/DEPARTURE AREA/LADIES' ROOM - DAY

             Bones appears. He is resplendent in a Carmen Miranda number.
             His makeup is impeccable.

             Sam is wearing the natty raw silk suit.

                                 SAM
                       If you looked anymore like Mary,
                       I'd kiss you.

                                 BONES
                       If you looked any less like a
                       janitor, I wouldn't kiss you.

             Bones pecks him on the cheek.

             EXT. AIRPORT/DEPARTURE DOORS - DAY

             Doc's Cab slides to the curb with Mrs. W. Govin waves for
             them to follow. They race into the building.

             INT. AIRPORT/TICKET COUNTERS - DAY

             Sam slips the two Tickets to Jamaica out of the bent Envelope
             addressed to Mary. He slaps them on the counter.

                                 BONES
                       First class! Oh Sammy darling, you
                       shouldn't have!

             The AGENT flips through the Tickets.

                                 TICKET AGENT
                       ID, please.

             Bones giggles and embraces Sam. Bones plays it to the hilt.

                                 SAM
                       Stall him!

             Bones breaks and drapes himself across the counter.

                                 BONES
                       That man of mine is such a
                       sweetheart! I just love him to bits!

                                 TICKET AGENT
                       ID please, ma'am.

                                 BONES
                       Bet you look good strutting the
                       beach, you big hunk. But honey,
                       not in that. Lordy, why do they
                       make us beautiful people wear such
                       hideous attire? I ask you?

             The Agent is not amused.

             Govin, Doc and Mrs. W. hurry through the CROWD.

             Raj waves them over. Mrs. W. hands Raj the Envelope. Raj
             rushes through the line.

                                 RAJ
                       Cousin Sam! Cousin Sam!

             PASSENGERS double take. They're so not cousins.

             Raj embraces Sam. He slips Sam the Envelope. They break.

             Sam hands the Agent Mary's PASSPORT.

                                 SAM
                       She's quite a flirt, eh?

             The Agent compares Mary's picture with Bones. Bones' smiles.

             INT. AIRPORT/NEAR SECURITY CHECK-IN - DAY

             Sam and Bones are at the entrance with Raj, Govin, Doc Dash
             and Mrs. W. Raj steps up to Sam and Bones.

                                 RAJ
                              (bowing)
                       It has been an honour to drive
                       you, Partners.

             Govin bows, reciting a Hindu Blessing as Raj translates.

                          GOVINDAPPA (HINDU)            RAJ

                  those that proved untrue.     those that proved untrue.

                                 SAM
                              (bows to Cabbies)
                       Trust is the gift of peace for a
                       weary heart...my friends.

             Mascara runs down Bones' teary cheek. Raj passes him a hanky.

             Sam approaches Mrs. W.

                                 MRS. WORTHINGTON
                       Something tells me I've
                       underestimated you, Sam.

                                 SAM
                       I love her too, Mrs. Worthington.
                       Don't worry, I'll bring Mary back.

             Mrs. W kisses Sam on the cheek.

                                 MRS. WORTHINGTON
                       Go get our girl, white boy.

             INT. AIRPORT/SECURITY CHECK-IN DESK - DAY

             Bones' Vanity is open in front of Inspector Giselle, from the
             Sofa Club. Bones files his nails, unconcerned.

             Giselle is riffling the contents. She opens a compact.

                                 BONES
                       Midnight Rendezvous. Do you think
                       it's me?

             Giselle passes it to Bones and continues searching. She grabs
             several more pieces of clothing and throws them at Bones.
             Giselle then holds up a pair of fishnets.

                                 BONES
                       I hear they're going to be all the
                       rage this fall.

             Sam watches in the background.

             Giselle digs deeper, handing more clothes to Bones. She pulls
             out a High-Tech VIBRATOR.

                                 BONES
                       Oh Lordy, Lord. How did that get
                       in there!
                              (whispers)
                       Mother's little helper, don't you
                       know.

             Giselle is impressed. She stuffs the sex Toy on top of the
             pile of clothes, under Bones' chin.

             Bones fumbles to pick up the case and steps away, stumbling
             on his heels.

             INT. AIR JAMAICA JET/BUSINESS CLASS - DAY

             Sam shows the boarding passes to the FLIGHT ATTENDANT. She
             directs them to their seats.

                                 BONES
                       When you get a jiff deary, can you
                       pour us some champers?

             Bones drops into his aisle seat.

                                 SAM
                              (grabs his knee hard)
                       Hold the fort, Honey.

             Sam heads for the head.

                                 BONES
                       Qu'elle animal!

             Before Sam closes the door, he sees...

             Sylvie enters, disguised as a MUSTACHED man. Sylvie and Bones
             eye each other, sharing a moment of attraction.

             Sylvie continues through to Economy.

             INT. AIR JAMAICA JET/ECONOMY - DAY

             Sylvie passes by Neil who doesn't recognize her. Sylvie
             continues farther back and takes her seat...

             Beside Howard, asleep under his mask.

             INT. AIR JAMAICA JET/BUSINESS CLASS - DAY

             Sam steps over Bones and takes the window seat.

             The two Inmates from Sam's Fantasy enter and pass.

             Sam double takes.

             Each Inmate eyes Bones. One offers a throaty growl.

                                 BONES
                       Men have absolutely no shame!

             INT. AIR JAMAICA JET/ECONOMY - DAY

             The Inmates trudge down the aisle. They stuff themselves into
             their seats, sandwiching Neil, elbowing him off the arm rests.

             Neil grabs the travel Brochure from the seat pocket. The same
             one Sam had at LaserTech. He hides behind it.

             EXT. AIRPORT/TARMAC - DAY

             All the Cabs are parked along the roadway to the airport
             gate. As the Air Jamaica plane speeds down the runway the
             Cabbies wave.

             INT. AIR JAMAICA JET/BUSINESS CLASS - DAY

             Sam taps Bones to look out the window. They wave back.

             INT. AIR JAMAICA JET/BUSINESS CLASS - LATER

             Bones reads "VOGUE". Sam hands the Attendant the Brochure.

                                 SAM
                       Thanks.

             The Attendant heads back, passing Neil and the Inmates and
             stops beside...

             Howard, asleep beside Sylvie. The Attendant offers the
             Brochure.

                                 ATTENDANT
                       Detective Frechette.

             Sylvie, intrigued, takes it. Written over an ad for the Blue
             Water Hotel is "Where FANTASIES become TRUTH...STR."

             Sylvie looks toward the front where...

              Sam stares out the widow at the Island of Jamaica below.

             EXT. JAMAICAN FORTIFIED ESTATE - DAY

             Armed GUARDS patrol the VILLA, set in the rocky cliffs. On
             the DOCKS below, Beauty carries a BLACK BRIEFCASE. A CRACKING
             sound is interspersed over her walk.

             She passes the Bad Boys and Girls loading weapons and scuba
             gear into a CABIN CRUISER then a CHEF, working at a large BBQ.

             Beauty stops behind TJ who talks with Botha. Botha cracks a
             Bullwhip at something OC. Now WE know what that sound was.

                                 BOTHA
                       And without trust, Mr. Johnson,
                       where would we be.

                                 TJ
                              (hiding his fear)
                       That's exactly what I tell my
                       guys, Mr. Botha.

             A Chinese MAN hangs, tied by his feet. Blood drips from lash-
             wounds into the churning water below. The SHARKS are hungry!

             Botha hands Beauty the whip. She caresses TJ's cheek with it.

                                 BEAUTY
                       Bertie's always a really fair guy.
                       If Hung Chow here makes it past
                       the shark nets, he can just keep
                       on swimming.

             Botha unsheathes a Sword and cuts the rope. The Man's screams
             are broken when he hits the water.

                                 BOTHA
                       Time to fish or cut bait, Mr.
                       Johnson.

             Screams shake TJ. He sees a bloody water drop land on
             Beauty's lip. She licks it off ever so slowly.

                                 BOTHA
                       Open that case for my favorite
                       business associate, Beauty.

             Beauty displays the $2.5 MILLION DOLLARS in neat bundles
             inside the Black Briefcase.

                                 BOTHA
                       I trust my little demonstration
                       has spurred you to make good on
                       your promise.

             TJ's slapped hard on the shoulder from behind. It's the Chef.

                                 CHEF
                       Shark-burger's are up, mate.

             The Chef shoves a bloody shark-burger at TJ's face.

                                 TJ
                       Ah...No. No thanks. I...ah...I
                       don't want to ruin my appetite.

             EXT. AIR JAMAICA JET - DAY

             On the Tarmac the gangway is attached to the Plane.

             On the far side of the plane Hindu baggage GUYS unload the
             cargo hold. Raj tumbles out into a pile of luggage.

                                 BINDI
                       Rajagopalan?!

                                 RAJ
                       Cousin Bindi! A blessing on you...
                              (looking past him)
                       ...and your baggage trollies.

             OTHER SIDE: Sam and Bones hurry down the gangway.

                                 BONES
                       Sammy. Slow down, these heels are
                       murder!

             They make their way across the tarmac.

             Neil steps out of the plane just as...

             TWO TRAMS with COVERED BAGGAGE TROLLIES converge on Sam and
             Bones from opposite directions. The Trollies stop in front
             and behind our Boys, thereby blocking Neil's view of them.

             Raj pops his head out from under the canvas baggage cover.

                                 RAJ
                       Howdy Partners! Hop in.

             Neil sees the Trams diverge.

             Sam and Bones are gone.

             Neil checks his Hand-Held.

             INTO THE SCREEN: past the pulsing red Blip, flying over
             Kingston, across the bay with the moored YACHT Rendezvous, to
             the BLUE WATER HOTEL, up into an EIGHTH floor suite's
             balcony, past sliding glass doors, to discover the MOFO Black
             Box resting on a table, into it until WE see the TRANSMITTER,
             into the Transmitter which becomes the...

                                                      DISSOLVE THROUGH:

             EXT. FORTRESS DOCK - DAY

             ...Pulsing Blip on Gringo's Screen which he shows Botha on
             his laptop.

             SEAGULLS dive for the remains of the Man.

                                 GRINGO
                       Safe and sound. You'd be the first
                       to know if I'd lost track of your
                       little prize. Gringo Diago
                       delivers, Gringo Diago collects.

             The Cabin Cruiser with Bad Kids pulls away from the dock.

                                 BOTHA
                       Mr. Diago, I can assure you.
                       There'll be morsels enough for
                       everyone when this is all over.

             The Chef slaps Gringo from behind.

                                 CHEF
                       Shark-burger, mate?

                                 GRINGO
                       I'm dying for one. Got hot sauce?

             EXT. WATER - DAY

             Beauty drives a CIGAR BOAT. Botha and Gringo sip drinks.

             EXT. BLUE WATER/FRONT DOORS - DAY

             A SIGN: JAMAICAN & SAN SEBASTIAN ENERGY SHARING GALA TODAY.
             Raj stops the baggage Tram. Sam and Bones sit in back. The
             Boys watch through the CROWD as...

             A TV Jamaica CREW tapes MICHAEL SHARPE and CAROL FRANCIS.

                                 MICHEAL SHARPE
                       That's right Carol, today's gala
                       party is to be attended by our own
                       Prime Minister, PJ Patterson and
                       his team of advisors. They will be
                       welcoming President Nathan
                       Coleridge, his Industry Ministers,
                       and his lovely daughter, Akisha,
                       all from the beautiful island
                       country of San Sebastian.

             Botha steps up between PRESIDENT NATHAN COLERIDGE (50s) and
             his daughter, AKISHA (28). Sam is floored.

                                 CARROL FRANCIS
                       That's right, Micheal. The
                       discovery of a large reservoir of
                       oil off the coast of San Sebastian
                       and the auspicious trade pact
                       signed between our two countries
                       today, has assured Jamaica a
                       guaranteed source of inexpensive
                       energy for many years to come.

             Bones is entranced with Akisha.

             Akisha sees Bones, in drag, staring at her. She turns away.

                                 MICHEAL SHARPE
                       President Coleridge, how have you
                       addressed the security issues
                       involving the protection of your
                       small nation's vast oil fields?

                                 PRES. COLERIDGE
                       As a matter of fact, we've seen to
                       that ourselves. Our own Mr. Albert
                       Botha...
                              (brings Botha close)
                       ...will be acting on this matter,
                       as our Chief of Homeland Security.
                       Both Prime Minister Patterson and
                       I agree...

             Sam notices Bones is bewitched. Sam pulls him along.

                                 SAM
                       You're dreaming, Bones. You're old
                       enough to be her mother. Let's go.

             Bones tags along, eyes still glued on Akisha, until he walks
             into a PLANTER. CRASH! As Raj helps Bones right the Planter,
             Sam listens to...

                                 CARROL FRANCIS
                       ...and after the gala, President
                       Coleridge and his entourage will set
                       sail in their yacht, Rendezvous,
                       moored just behind the fabulous Blue
                       Water Hotel here in Kingston, for
                       their return to San Sebastian.

                                 BONES
                       I've never seen anything so
                       stunning in my life.

                                 SAM
                       Yeah, it's all falling into place now.

                                 RAJ
                       I know! I can't believe they let
                       you park right out front here.

              INT. BLUE WATER/FRONT DESK - DAY

                                 DESK CLERK
                       Yes Mr. Reagan, Mr. TJ has a suite
                       already reserved for you and a Mr.
                       Bones Jones.

             Bones doesn't look much like a Mister to the DESK CLERK.

                                 BONES
                       Oh! Mister Jones! That old kidder!
                       It's Bonita, darling. Bonita Jones.

                                 DESK CLERK
                       Bonita...ah. Mr. TJ has fine
                       taste, he's requested the very
                       best suite for you, non-smoking of
                       course.

                                 SAM
                       Actually, no.
                              (confidentially)
                       Swami Raj, my wife's spiritual
                       advisor, smokes quite heavily. For
                       their...rituals.

                                 DESK CLERK
                       I see. Let's have a look, shall we.
                              (checking computer)
                       Your Guru must bring good karma
                       with him. You're in luck.

             The Desk Clerk goes and gets the keys.

                                 BONES
                       Sammy, what was that all about?

                                 SAM
                       Why would we want to be where TJ
                       knows we are, my sweet?

                                 BONES
                       Quick thinking, Colonel.

             SMITHSON, the Bellhop, appears. He's onto Bones' drag-gag.

                                 CLERK
                              (handing over keys)
                       Mr. Reagan, you will find
                       invitations for the Gala in your
                       room and Mr. TJ has set up an
                       account for you with our tailor.

             He indicates a shop across the lobby.

                                 SAM
                       How thoughtful of him.

             Smithson reaches to take the Vanity from Bones.
