GREGORY
Hey hey heyyy, buddy!
MAURICE
Gregory?
GREGORY
Hadn't talked to you in a while. The company gave me this sweet computer, so I thought I'd vid you.
MAURICE
"Company."
GREGORY
Yeah, I'm with Tracor. Never been happier.
MAURICE
So, you moved out of your mother's garage?
GREGORY
(laughs hugely)
I know! It's so great. I'm going to have to reciprocate for some of those beers you had to buy me 'cause I was broke.
MAURICE
Don't worry about it --
GREGORY
(to someone OS)
Thank you, Candace.
(to Maurice)
She's a doll. ... So are you still at the T.V. station?
MAURICE
Yes, just like when I saw you three weeks ago, and for fifteen years prior to that.
GREGORY
Good! Good for you!
GREGORY
(to someone OS)
Thank you, Cassandra.
MAURICE
I thought you said her name was Candace.
GREGORY
We have ... secretary redundancy here at Tracor for security reasons.
MAURICE
That makes no sense.
GREGORY
Well, we know what we're doing.
MAURICE
To have more people handling sensitive material. Absolutely no sense at all.
GREGORY
Well, gotta go. Great to talk to you buddy, and, you just, hang in there.
MAURICE
"Hang in there"?
RUTHANNE
Was that Gregory? I'm so excited about his new job.
MAURICE
Ruthanne, I'm afraid that Gregory has broken into an office building.
RUTHANNE
Morris!
MAURICE
It's Maurice, and you should know that. We're married. ... Gregory was broke and unemployed. Tracor ...
SCREEN SHOT: WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE ABOUT TRACOR.
MAURICE
Tracor doesn't exist anymore. It was bought by British Aviation Electronics.
RUTHANNE
Baby, leave it alone. Gregory has been your friend since you were thirteen years old.
MAURICE
Well, it's been mostly downhill since fifteen.
RUTHANNE
You can talk to him tomorrow.
INT. LIVING ROOM - DAY
TITLE: "TOMORROW ..."
GREGORY
Hi, buddy!
MAURICE
Hi, Gregory. Just following up on yesterday. What do you do for Tracor?
GREGORY
I really can't talk about it, Mo. It's secret government work.
MAURICE
And where are you living now?
GREGORY
Well, I'm out of town a lot, so I live in hotels.
MAURICE
Where's your office?
GREGORY
(reaches OS and takes a bunch of flowers)
Flowers! For me? Thank you Carol!
(to Maurice)
We're downtown.
MAURICE
Which building?
GREGORY
The Hung-Garyman ...
MAURICE
Hungry Man?
GREGORY
... Stein.
MAURICE
Hungarymanstein?
GREGORY
Hungarymanstein ... Building.
MAURICE
I'd like to visit you.
GREGORY
Hello? Can you hear me? The audio went out.
MAURICE
You have a booger in your nose.
GREGORY
Where?
MAURICE
Ah ha!
GREGORY HITS HIS KEYBOARD AND SIGNS OFF.
MAURICE
(V.O.)
I've got to talk to Greg's mother, and see what the hell is going on.
GREGORY
(O/S)
Coach! Coach Trimble! It's Gregory Mason. ... It's been twenty years, yes. Hey, remember when you said that I would never amount to anything unless I could climb that rope in P.E. class? Well, I'm with Tracor now.
GREGORY
Oop! Gotta go, coach. You hang in there!
MAURICE
I cannot believe it.
GREGORY
I'm sorry.
MAURICE
This is so much worse than breaking into a building.
GREGORY
I tried to break into a building, but --
MAURICE
You know that there is no Tracor anymore?
GREGORY
There was one?
FADE TO BLACK.
