The Transcript For This Page
Rando Greene is sitting at a table at a sidewalk cafe. We can see a sign 'Cafe de Quark' nearby. Rando is reading something on a pop-up holoscreen.
Medium shot of Rando, from the POV of someone standing on the other side of his table. He's looking up at his interlocutor.
Voice: Mr. Greene, please pardon the intrusion ...
Looking over Rando's shoulder at the interlocutor. It's a tall, tanned woman with flowing blonde hair, and she is dressed to kill.
Woman: ... but I'm in need of a publicist and my friend referred me to you.
Rando: Ah ... please have a seat, Ms -?
The woman is now seated across the small table from Rando.
Woman: Paula Steele. I'm an actress, and I sing a little. I was referred by Obie Carlson, my manager.
Rando: Oh yeah, Obie. Why didn't he call to set up an appointment?
Full two-shot of Rando and Steele. We can see her playing footsie with him under the table.
Steele: He's, um, busy with some kind of legal issue. And I thought it best to meet you in person.
Steele: To find out if you're as ... good as Obie says you are.
Looking over Steele's shoulder at Rando. He's looking interested.
Rando: Oh, Obie has no idea how good I am.
Rando: So, tell me a little about your, um, professional background.
Close-shot under the table, in Steele's lap. She's got a device about the size and shape of a thumb drive and is pointing it towards Rando.
Steele: Well, I studied at the Mulberry Academy, and have had speaking roles in a dozen A-Trade shows, including three musicals.
Steele: I'd like to show you my portfolio. Can we go to your office?
Steele and Greene arise from the table, Rando dabs a napkin at his mouth, having finished his breakfast. Steele is all smiles.
Rando: Sure, it's not far. But I hope you don't mind that it's a home-office.
Rando: I like to keep my overhead low.
Steele: I don't mind at all.
