The Transcript For This Page
Bok is leaning against a wall in a corridor, talking on a, yes, smartphone. Although on this world they call these devices 'handys'.
Bok: Hey Zander, it's Bok. You make it home yet?
Zander (electronic, from handy): A little while ago. The power came back on not quite two ekostas after you, uh, left.
Zander: Fortunately the door closed itself, and nobody asked where you were.
Bok begins walking along the corridor.
Zander: Mom is on the warpath, though, wondering where I've been.
Bok: What, why didn't she call your handy?
Zander: I, uh, forgot to turn it back on after class. You know the rule about handies.
Bok: No blitz. Well, anyway, I'm coming by, if that's cool.
Cut to: Zander in his room. He's sitting at a workstation console in his bedroom, has a headset on.
Zander: Coming by? Why?
Bok (electronic): After today we need to blow off some steam. Party at Giovanni's.
Zander: But that's … in Tower Five. How do we get there?
Bok is approaching the door to Zander's apartment.
Bok: Your old man's buggy, of course. I got my cert, remember?
Zander (electronic): Why would he, uh, lend us his buggy?
Bok: Leave that to me, glasshoppa.
Zander: I hate it when you call me that.
In Zander's apartment: Bok is speaking with Zander's parents, Nidas and Olypi, as Zander stands to the side, with that anxious aspie look.
Nidas: You want to use my cart?
Bok: There's a study group planned for the history class we're both in, in Tower Five.
Nidas: Why do you have to go so far? Can't you do this over the network?
Bok: Sure, but, well, Zander could use more, um, human contact, given his condition, wouldn't you agree?
Closer shot on the four. Bok is holding up a card for Nidas to see.
Nidas: I can't argue with that, and I appreciate what you do for him, but …
Bok: And I have my certification, see?
Bok: With the radial rails being spotty in the evenings, it would really be safer to have personal transportation, wouldn't it?
Nidas: Well, all right. But be careful on the road, and get back here before 17, understood?
