The Transcript For This Page
Back in the L-5 City, Nicole enters an establishment identified by a sign, 'Alizadeh Interfacing.'
Caption: In the Arch, L-5 City.
Nicole stands before a receptionist desk, behind which is seated another young-looking woman of apparent Iranian extraction. Nicole is handing the woman a card.
Nicole: I'm Nicole Oresme, here for my 13:00 appointment. This is my referral.
Medium close-up of the receptionist looking at the card, eyes widening.
A rather large and not-too-bright-looking Persian man appears instantly next to the Receptionist, somewhat startling Nicole.
Receptionist: Escort this honored client to the preparation room at once.
The preparation room. Peyman remains by the door as Nicole enters. Also in the room are Farzad Alizadeh, a middle-aged Persian man, and a young, bright-looking male assistant, Yousef. Front and center is something that looks like a dentist's chair.
Farzad: Welcome, Ms. Oresme. I am Dr. Farzad Alizadeh and this is my assistant, Yousef.
Farzad: Please have a seat and we'll get started right away.
Three-shot of Farzad, Yousef and Nicole in the chair, looking slightly uncomfortable.
Farzad: You are to be receiving the M-6460 Series Cortical Processor Implant, the very latest, yes?
Farzad: Yousef, begin the anesthetic procedure.
Same shot. Youself is holding up a small facial breathing mask, but is interrupted by Nicole.
Nicole: Ah, no offense intended, but I'd feel more comfortable with a female assistant, please?
Farzad: Of course.
Suddenly, in place of Youself is a handsome young Persian woman. Nicole looks impressed.
Farzad: This is Niki.
Nicole: Now, that's customer service.
Farzad: Your employer Dr. Murtagh always demands the best.
