Midnight, Hotel Mystery Groove
2. INT. HOTEL LOBBY. MORNING
Middle-aged MAN and WOMAN, WALTER and PEGGY STAMP, stride somewhat purposefully through an incredibly dingy lobby, past a couple of OLD MEN sitting and staring, past the terribly tacky lobby furniture and up to the battered front desk. The OWNER watches them passively as they come up, not moving nor particularly getting excited about their arrival. They, however, both seem quite anxious about something.
3. INT. HOTEL LOBBY. EVENING.
POV shot from the front desk, we see a car pull up and screech to a halt right before the front doors. The MAN from the first scene - THOMAS - climbs out the driver's side, runs around to the passenger side, and flings open the door. He reaches inside and grabs the WOMAN from the first scene - JESSICA - and pulls her out of the car and throws her over his shoulder. Her hands are tied behind her back, her feet are tied together, and she is gagged and struggling furiously, but he carries her handily into the lobby, past the two OLD MEN, straight up to the front desk, where the OWNER stands.
THOMAS transfers JESSICA to his other shoulder, she struggling the whole while, and grabs the pen with his right hand and signs the book.
He sets JESSICA down on the counter in order to fish out money from his wallet. The OWNER and JESSICA trade glances - she furious, he nonplused.
THOMAS throws down nineteen bucks on the counter and picks JESSICA back up. The OWNER grabs a key from the wall behind him and sets it on the counter.
The OWNER watches them leave, still fairly expressionless.
4. INT. HOTEL LOBBY. MORNING.
WALTER and PEGGY seem mortified.
PEGGY throws a dollar down on the desk. WALTER scoops it up.
WALTER storms off, and PEGGY follows reluctantly.
