EXT. WIDECOUNTRY HEADQUARTERS – LATER THAT NIGHT

               After another long day, exhausted Rudy exits and reaches his
               Mercedes CLK 550.  But Flanagan sits on the hood holding a
               cardboard box with his personal office items.

                                   RUDY
                         What're you doing, Devil Dog?

                                   FLANAGAN
                         Dude, you would not fuckin' believe
                         it.  I got shitcanned!

                                   RUDY
                         What, how?!

                                   FLANAGAN
                         Mitch fired me.  He wanted me to
                         falsify some loan app with a BK and
                         I wouldn't do it.

                                   RUDY
                         He can't do that.  You gotta run it
                         through change control.

                                   FLANAGAN
                         Pussy got all belligerent.  Called
                         me a "Mick."  Told him to fuck off
                         and he fired my ass.

                                   RUDY
                         I'm gonna talk to Sammy.

                                   FLANAGAN
                         No, I don't like it here, man.  But
                         I appreciate what you did for me.

               They shake, then Rudy storms away...



               INT. MITCH'S OFFICE – MOMENTS LATER

               And into Mitch without being invited.  Flustered Mitch is
               pissed.

                                   MITCH
                         You don't have a meeting scheduled!

                                   RUDY
                         You fired Flanagan?!

                                   MITCH
                         He insubordinate and fired himself.

                                   RUDY
                         What the fuck is going on here?!

                                   MITCH
                         We need team players.  Our end
                         users need their loans or this
                         company is done.

               Rudy's face flushes with anger.  He is speechless,
               disorientated.  His eyes dart across the room, and he spots a
               flyer in Mitch's inbox.

Oooh and things start to get good.  I wonder if the Kevin Flanagan in your movie will end up like the real one, sending Rudy on a crusade for truth, justice, and the elimination of cheap foreign labor in IT?

Keep it up, Rat.  Keep it up.
