INT. WARD. DAY
describing the view outside the window
well. anything good?

They both laugh
theres a lambagini outside, you

Nurse goes through door
ok Colin, your hour’s over, its
time to lie back down
She helps Colin lie down on the bed.
Is there anything, I can get you
err, no, thank you.
The nurse comes in and once again props Colin upright in his
It’s raining. there’s been a crash.
ye, what else? come on tell me
err, there’s another chick
come on details...
you know it’s really not fair that
you can see out that window and I
can’t. God if I could see you that
window I would describe every
little thing from the color of an
old man’s coat to the shape of a
door and you won’t even give me the
measurements of this chick.
Colin lies back down in his bed.
hey, what the hell are you doing?
I’ve had enough for today
dude, come on don’t be like that
I’m sorry Adam but I’m tired and my
Adam looks angry.
INT. WARD. NIGHT
Both men are asleep and it seems peaceful, until Colin
begins to cough violently. He tries to reach for the big red
button on the wall but he can not reach.
Adam is starring looking angry, he reaches over to press his
own red button but suddenly he catches a glimpse of
moonlight coming from the window and the look on his face
suggests that the death of his friend could be the key to
moving next to the window. He falls back to sleep.
INT. WARD. DAY
The nurse wheels a body in a bag on a stretcher out of the
room. Colin’s bed is empty.
The nurse comes back in.
I’m sorry Adam. Colin didn’t make
it, he passed away in his sleep
last night. I know how close you
two were. Would you like some time
yes please. (pause) actually, could
I be moved next to the window? I
think its what Colin would have
are you sure?
Nurse switches the two bed’s around.
I’ll give you some time.
She leaves and shuts the door behind her.
Adam with an excited expression on his face, finally hoists
himself up on his elbows (even though this is dangerous in
his condition) to catch his first glance out of the window.
His face is stunned with shock, he gasps. There is nothing
but a brick wall outside of the window. Adam looks up to the
ceiling realizing what he has done. Fade out.
