Many punks and goths with various tattoos, piercings, and unorthodox hairdos are standing around. Loud music is playing. Everyone is smiling and waving farewell to SQUIDGE and SONIA, a punk couple who both have mohawks, are wearing leather jackets, are multiply pierced, and have thick black eyeliner. They are leaving through the front door and waving goodbye to their friends.

SCENE: In front of MOTEL ROOM an hour later
Squidge and Sonia are leaving through the door of the MOTEL ROOM, grinning and laughing at each other's little jokes. Sonia's clothes have changed too... she is wearing a nice floral print summer dress with a cardigan. All their piercings and gloomy make-up have disappeared. Any trace of counterculture has been erased. They look like any sterotypical "average", happy, wholesome young couple that you would expect to see in church every Sunday.
