Thoughtful phycologist DR DOLLY WILLIAMS is arguing with her tempered boyfriend and teacher PROFESSOR JOHN TUNNS. DOLLY tries to hug JOHN but he shakes off her advances.

DOLLY
Please John, don’t leave me…JOHN
I’m sorry Dolly, but I’m looking for somebody a bit more brave. Somebody who faces her fears head on, instead of running away.

DOLLY
I am such a person!

JOHN frowns.

JOHN
I’m sorry, Dolly. I just don’t feel excited by this relationship anymore.

JOHN leaves.

DOLLY

sits down on here office chair, looking defeated.

Moments later, bold psychiatrist DR STEVE PAKETT barges in looking flustered.

DOLLY
Goodness, Steve! Is everything okay?

STEVE
I’m afraid not.

DOLLY
What is it? Don’t keep me in suspense…

STEVE
It’s … a sound wave … An evil sound wave that destroys critical thinking skills is about to be released and it can drastically harm a bunch of people!

DOLLY
People?

STEVE
Yes, defenseless people!

DOLLY
Bloomin’ heck, Steve! We’ve got to do something.

STEVE
I agree, but I wouldn’t know where to start.

DOLLY
You can start by telling me where this happened.

STEVE
I was…

STEVE fans himself and begins to wheeze.

DOLLY
Focus Steve, focus! Where did it happen?

STEVE
At a local satellite station not too far from here. I was accompanying a man named, Mr. Robert Moss he is an investor and big university donor. I was tasked with showing him our experiments with sound treatments. It was during this tour that Mr. Moss left behind a file folder in my office that I couldn’t help but peek into it. Well, in this file I seen a patent description along with a letter to the governor for immediate implementation of this mysterious sound wave frequency over the air waves.

DOLLY

So what your saying is..this is set to be released to air to everyone?

STEVE

It seems so. Yes…

DOLLY

I can’t imagine this to be true. I mean. Does Mr. Moss know he left behind this important information?

STEVE

As far as I know he doesn’t. He hasn’t contacted me since his visit. But now I don’t know if I’m at risk or danger now for knowing.

DOLLY

Well, that would make two of us now Steve.

STEVE

I’m Sorry Dolly…I Just…

DOLLY

No Steve don’t be sorry. You were concerned. frightened even. This is serious. We…We have to do something…

STEVE

What can we possibly do Dolly? It looks like plans are already in place to do this.

DOLLY

Well, shall we just sit back and wait for some frequency to keep us from ever thinking critically again. We won’t be able to think critically again if this wave or whatever it is goes live.

STEVE

I Know

DOLLY

Does anyone else know about what you discovered?

STEVE

No..(whispers) well.. I

DOLLY springs up.

DOLLY

Good.

Dolly suddenly points a 9mm silencer hand gun at STEVE and shoots him in the head. After placing the hand gun on her desk She calls Security for assistance via her office phone line. Security immediately enters to remove STEVE from her office. After STEVE’s body is carried away Dolly proceeds to make a phone call to Mr. Moss.

Hello. Yes Sir. Its done. He’s gone. Okay.
