NT. BATHROOM - JACK'S CONDO - NIGHT Jack sits on the toilet, CORDLESS
PHONE to his ear, flips
through an IKEA catalog. There's a stack of old Playboy
magazines and other catalogs nearby. JACK (V.O.)

If I saw something like clever coffee
table sin the shape of a yin and

with tiny bubbles and imperfections,
proof they were crafted by the
honest, simple, hard-working
indigenous peoples of wherever.
He rummages through the
refrigerator. It's practically
empty. Jack takes out a jar of mustard, opens it and uses
a butter knife to eat it.
