EXT. ASHLEY ASSOCIATES OFFICE - DAY 

               Carina exits in a revealing black outfit.  An Orange County
               hottie.

               Rudy pulls up in his 1995 gold Nissan pickup truck.  It's
               worth about $2,500, and Carina's disappointed look shows it.

                                   RUDY
                         Are you hungry?

                                   CARINA
                         No offense, but your beater just
                         took away my appetite.

               Rudy LAUGHS.

                                   CARINA
                         You buy it off a Mexican
                         landscaper?

                                   RUDY
                         I did, and for a good price.
                             (beat)
                         C'mon, hop in.

                                   CARINA
                         Only if you promise to upgrade this
                         piece of shit as soon as you land
                         the WideCountry job.

               Rudy doesn't have to think twice about it.

                                   RUDY
                         I will, and you can pick out the
                         interior color.

               Carina smiles, hops in to the pickup, and they drive away.



               EXT. HURRICANES BAR – DUSK 

               It's Friday Happy Hour and the bar is mobbed.  Carina and
               Rudy share drinks on the second floor patio.

                                   CARINA
                         How are the interviews going?

                                   RUDY
                         What if some fat, smelly, mouth
                         breather picked his nose right in
                         front of you as he supposedly
                         "read" your resume?

                                   CARINA
                         Uhh, that wouldn't happen to me.

               Rudy LAUGHS.

                                   RUDY
                         You're right.
                             (beat)
                         I'm not sure this is for me. 
                         I don't fit in with all of these
                         tweekers and keyboard pounders. 
                         They all have some sort of weird
                         color skin. 

               Carina SNORTS OUT LAUGHING!

                                   RUDY
                         What?

                                   CARINA
                         Yeah, we call that the T.T. -
                         techie tan.  All you guys get it.

                                   RUDY
                         Ha, never had it, never will.

                                   CARINA
                         I'll drink to that.

               They clang their glasses and drink, enjoying themselves.

                                   CARINA
                         But you better know...Narvin is
                         pissed.  You went on six
                         interviews, but you haven't called
                         him about WideCountry.

                                   RUDY
                         I gotta go back to school.

               Carina takes charge.

                                   CARINA
                         Fuck school, Rudy, and you fuck me.

               Rudy snaps to attention what Carina's forward announcement.

                                   RUDY
                         You think so?

                                   CARINA
                         I know so.  I also know you can run
                         circles around dozens of guys we
                         placed who make about 200K.

               Rudy gains confidence with her faith in him.

                                   RUDY
                         Wow, 200K!

                                   CARINA
                         School is for kids.  Are you a kid?

               Carina moves close to Rudy and they start to make out.  It
               gets hot and heavy, but then she pulls back.

                                   CARINA
                         So in two days, you call Narvin.

                                   RUDY
                         Why two days?

                                   CARINA
                         We have some adjustments to make.

               Carina moves closer to Rudy and gets really sweet.

                                   CARINA
                         Like your smile.

               This makes Rudy LAUGH and smile.

                                   RUDY
                         What's wrong with my smile?

                                   CARINA
                         Absolutely nothing.  It's perfect. 
                         But you gotta use it more often.

               Rudy smiles wide, and they make out again as we...

                                                           DISSOLVE TO:



               INT. NORDSTROMS MEN'S STORE - DAY

               Rudy tries on suits as Carina looks on.  He looks great and
               she gives him the thumbs up...

               Then she picks out a shirt and tie combo for him...

               Then he picks out a pair of conservative brown wing tip dress
               shoes.  But Carina puts them back and hands him a pair of
               black Italian loafers.



               INT. HURRICANES BAR – NIGHT

               Rudy and Carina dirty dance, falling for each other.  The
               song ends and the lights flicker to signal closing time.



               EXT. HURRICANES BAR - MOMENTS LATER

               Rudy and Carina stumble down the street, making out.  Rudy
               pulls out his cell phone and dials.

                                   RUDY (INTO PHONE)
                         Hi, Narvin.  Fuck you!

               Carina freaks out and shakes her head NO!  But Rudy LAUGHS. 
               He was just kidding.

                                   RUDY (INTO PHONE)
                         I need a cab, just east of
                         Hurricanes on Main at the pier.

               Rudy hangs up the phone and Carina jumps into his arms.

                                   CARINA
                         You're so responsible, I love that.
                             (beat)
                         And I'm responsible for this.

               Carina pulls Rudy around the corner into a partially blocked
               alley.  In a flash, she unzips his fly, goes down on him...

               And continues until he's done.  She has Rudy on the hook.



               EXT. DOWNTOWN HUNTINGTON BEACH – MOMENTS LATER

               Lazlo pulls up, and Rudy leads Carina into the cab.  Lazlo
               eyes them closely and pretends he doesn't know who Rudy is.

                                   LAZLO
                         Where to, sir?

                                   RUDY
                         Wherever this beautiful woman
                         lives.
                             (beat)
                         And then back to my place.  I have
                         a big interview tomorrow, so it's
                         time to get some rest.

               Carina appreciates Rudy's gentlemanly gesture.

                                   CARINA
                         I live in Newport, 29th and Ocean.

               Lazlo drives and watches his son and Carina interact
               harmlessly in the back seat.  It brings a smile to his face.

Rat Pack

So let me guess... on the eve of their wedding day some deranged Indian H-1B, drunk off the thrill of the "American Dream" and having told all his buddies that they can displace competent American workers by lying and fraud, murders Carina, causing Rudy to snap and go on a murderous rampage against Indian programmers?

Or is that the sequel?  Tunnel Rat 2:  Out of the Trenches

Keep up the good work.  Looking forward to reading this.
