EXT. FIRST NATIONAL BANK - NIGHT DANIEL and ADAM are outside crouched behind a car. CLAIRE and FRANKIE, with a laptop, are off to the side in a van. DANIEL Okay. Adam and I are across from the bank. Claire, are you and Frankie in position with the van? CLAIRE Roger that. DANIEL Great. I’ve got the grappling hook, so Adam and I can enter from the top. Now Frankie, have you hacked into the bank’s security system yet? FRANKIE Nope! DANIEL What do you mean, nope? FRANKIE Yeah, no. I’m not doing that. DANIEL Are you kidding me? We planned this heist down to the second! You have to- FRANKIE We’ve done this shit your way a thousand times, Danny. it’s always the same. You guys go in there, steal the money and get the girl while I’m stuck in a hot server room. I’m tired of being the tech guy. What I really want to be is an assassin! DANIEL Frankie! You’re the best coder in the biz! This isn’t the time- FRANKIE Then when is the time, Danny? When IS the time?! Listen, I code all day at my job and I hate it. What I really like is killing people! And I’m good at it! (beat) I got a sniper rifle. Here. Right now. You get me out there, I blow each of those motherfuckers’ brains out. We walk in and take the cash. Boom. CLAIRE This is a bank heist! We can’t kill anyone! FRANKIE That’s bullshit. We’re criminals! ADAM We’re classy thieves. Not murderers! FRANKIE Exactly! YOU’RE classy thieves. Let me be the murderer! DANIEL No! We need you to tunnel through the backend of the security- FRANKIE (shutting the laptop) Oh? Is that all I’m good for? The ol’ beep boop boop beep beep beep blorp? Fuck that. I’m shutting the laptop. Oop. Look. It’s shut now. Guess we gotta do it my way! Straight. Up. Killin’. CLAIRE Why do you want to kill people?! FRANKIE Uh, for starters, I worked in IT for four years. (beat) Never got a raise. But the first time I killed a guy, I got a free car out of it! Had to hose out the inside, though. They say you’ll never work a day in your life if you do what you love. And boy, do I love killing! DANIEL Dammit, Frankie. If you’re not going to stick to the plan, we’ll have to deal with this ourselves. DANIEL and ADAM throw up the grappling hook, scale the wall and drop into the bank. They’re horrified by what they see. ADAM Oh, my god. THERE’RE BODIES EVERYWHERE! FRANKIE Ha. Ha. Oh yeah. I forgot. I got here ahead of time and released some poison g- DANIEL FRANKIE! FRANKIE You didn’t let me finish. I was going to say "released some poison gas". DANIEL These people had FAMILIES! FRANKIE Well, they should’ve thought of that before I killed them. ADAM picks up a guard’s arm. It has no hand. ADAM Why is this guy missing a hand?! FRANKIE Funny story. I chopped that dude’s hand off to get fingerprints for the safe’s biometric scanner. CLAIRE I think I’m going to be sick. DANIEL Jesus Christ, Frankie. You’re supposed to be helping us hack into things, not hack off body parts. FRANKIE Again with the computer stuff. Can’t you see I hate that? Do you know how many times I had to restart someone’s computer at work today? 43 times. And that was just one guy! Chopping off that guard’s hand was the only thing I did today that I was passionate about! DANIEL We’re trying to rob a bank, not commit war crimes! FRANKIE Listen, shitbird. You wanna make an omelette, you’re gonna have to cut off a few hands. Alarm bells start ringing. DANIEL Great. We tripped the security system. We’re never going to get our money now. Thanks a lot, Frankie. FRANKIE I was never in it for the money. I was in it for the love of the game. (beat) I’m an artist and murder is my canvas. ADAM Frankie, shut up! We need you to re-program the alarm! The cops are going to be here any second! FRANKIE Yeah. About that. Before I got here, I made a little pitstop across town. CLAIRE Oh my God. What did you do? FRANKIE Let’s just say I (air quotes) "blew up the police station". Now quit whining and grab the money. ADAM and DANIEL walk into the safe, comes back with a bag of money and the guard’s severed hand. ADAM Say what you will about Frankie... he gets results. A beat passes. FRANKIE Anyone else SUPER hard right now? BLACKOUT.
