(waving him over) You’ve got to see this! Chance leaps from his chair and races to Mary’s side. He looks down in the drawer. His jaw drops and his eyes widen. INSERT - MINIATURE SAMBO DOLL IN DRAWER

48. Chance sees a six inch black doll with protruding lips. It is wearing lipstick and a business suit. A faux gold chain with "CHANCE" inscribed on it, hangs from its neck. BACK TO SCENE Chance snatches up the doll and SLAMS it to the ground. He STOMPS on it, until its head falls off and rolls away. He scoops it up and tosses it in the waste basket. Panting, he sits down and rubs his temple.(pause) He looks up at Mary. CHANCE Welcome to my world! They lock eyes. Mary reaches her hand out to him. He gently squeezes it. Nearby brokers stop and stare, like bystanders at the scene of an auto accident. MARY Are you okay? Chance nods and tightens his grip on her hand. He closes his eyes. After a few beats, he opens them. CHANCE (chuckling) I’m honored that he took the time to buy a doll and name it after me. I just wish he had picked a better looking one! MARY (feigning smile) That’s some world you live in, Mr. La Roux! CHANCE Tell me about it! INT. OFFICE - DAY Chance arrives at the office. Crossing to his desk, he sees Mary struggling with her computer. He stops to assist her. MARY’S DESK CHANCE Good morning. What seems to be troubling you this beautiful day? Mary looks up from the monitor. Her smile radiates energy, although she is frustrated.

49. MARY Oh, hi Chance...it’s these "friggin" securities... He lays down his briefcase. MARY ...I can’t seem to be able to book them. I’ve been trying all morning. She hands him a list. Chance peruses through it, then hands it back to her. CHANCE Relax. I’ll show you. She turns the keyboard around. He bends down and TYPES. CHANCE Are you getting it now? MARY (watching) I want you teach me, not do it for me! He stops TYPING and turns the keyboard back around to her and positions himself over her shoulders. She catches a whiff of his designer cologne and is smitten. He is equally beguiled by the scent of her expensive perfume, as he guides her fingers from behind. CHANCE As you can see, it’s quite simple, just input the cusip number on (pointing to monitor) this line here and your’re all set. He turns over the keyboard to her. Chance manages to sneak a peek of her breasts through the unbuttoned top of her blouse. After TYPING a few lines, with success she stops and turns to Chance, she catches him leering at her bosom.(pause) Mary casually fastens her button and continues TYPING. MARY I believe, I have it now. Thanks to you. She swivels her chair around. They lock eyes and are oblivious to their surroundings. It takes the RA-TA-TA sound of the dot matrix printer to JOLT them back to reality.
