at the table in front of him and pulls out a small stack of
pictures and lays them out on the table.
The missing fingers in the victims,
we've been missing one bit of
GUY2 gestures the waitress to their table.
See, Victim 1 lost the pinky.
Victim 2 lost the ring finger, and
Victim 3 lost the middle...
The waitress arrives at the right side of GUY1 at the table.
Our special today is the beef stew.

GUY1 turns to her confused.
coffee... I'm sorry what were the
specials? My right ear's deaf.
I'll take that, thanks.
Coffee as well, Just give me a
corned beef sandwich. No cheese.
The waitress walks away.
See, there was an even time between
each murder, and it's been a while
since he's killed again.
Because, the he's finished the job.
Wrong... I've realized that all of
the victims were friends to Mario
Yeah. And the fingers... He's been
working his way across the hand.
The waitress places the bowl of stew in front of GUY1 and
the sandwich in front of Guy 2.
I'll be right back with coffee,
sorry about the hold up.

cheese between his roast beef and bread with a bite out of
Aww... christ... I specifically

The waitress pulls out a small jug of milk and asks GUY1 if
he'd like some through gesture.
Uh, yes please.
The waitress pours milk into GUY1's coffee and walks away.
Well, what do you think?
I think this is really amazing
stuff, what you're bringing up
here, and I think it's very
important to inform the chief.
Hell, even the DA!
I wanted to check if I wasn't a
loon drawing all these conclusions
and see what you thought first...
...No no, your theory is definitely
See another idea, I'm not sure if
this is stretching it a bit too
much... You think 'Pollice' might
have something to do with 'Police'?
Well, it does... sound like a bit
of a... stretch. But I still think
we should bring it up to the chief
Yeah beacause If it is related to
'police' I think...
Listen... I hate to do this, but I
think we should cut our dinner
short. I'm not taking this cheese
GUY1 notices GUY2 struggling a bit in his chair.
Oh... no worries. I understand.
Just bring in all your info to the

some money onto the counter. GUY2 works his way to the

at the severed finger. GUY 2 walks to his parked car and

and starts wandering the side walk. GUY1 flips to the next
picture studying it tediously. GUY2 screeches his car out of
the parking spot and speeds down the road moaning. The bum's
drunken walk slows down. Beside him, he notices a car with
its engine running and door wide open parked in front of a

laundry place with a basket of clothing. GUY1 is waiting at
a crosswalk. the light goes green for him, but he stays in
place, still studying the pictures. GUY2 is shivering in
tension driving his car furiously down the road. The green
light ahead of him turns yellow.

bum flies out of the windshield landing on GUY2's car hood.

shit covers the entire accident...
Very random ending, but decidedly good. Despite minor errors easily fixed during development, the script would make a very good animation. Though, as I'm sure you're aware off, if you're going for something serious the whole shitting everywhere may ruin it for you.
It has a funny end I guess. I guess that did fix the cliche problem though, heh.
Failure should push you until success can pull you.
