CUT TO:

INT. DOLLARHYDE HOUSE – NIGHT

DOLLARHYDE’S muscular frame bears the full body tattoo of William Blake’s Red Dragon — the head on Dollarhyde’s chest, the tail snaking down and wrapping around one of Dollarhyde’s legs. His back is to us in a weight-lifter’s pose. A rolled-up stocking covers Dollarhyde’s head to just below his nose. Dollarhyde’s teeth are jagged and brown-stained. And he smiles at LOUNDS in front of the white screen.

LOUNDS (O.S.)
Oh my dear God Jesus.

LOUNDS turns away. The shape of Dollarhyde passes behind his head. The kimono is on again.

PAST LOUNDS’ HEAD: SCREEN

A slide appears. It is Blake’s painting.

DOLLARHYDE
Look at the screen. That is William
Blake’s ‘The Great Red Dragon and
The Woman Clothed with the Sun.
Do you see?

LOUNDS
Yes …

DOLLARHYDE
Do you see, Mr. Lounds? Do you
see what I’m getting at?

LOUNDS
Yes, you seem to be pointing out
how the decisions to move their
star first baseman and closer
helped the Rangers reach the
World Series.

DOLLARHYDE
Very good, Mr. Lounds. You are free
to go.

Dollarhyde unglues Lounds’ skin from the chair and lets him go.

THE END.

    Think we can get the Braves to do that again? Think we can get ANYBODY to do that again, after they’ve seen what happened to the Braves? It’s a great trick, but I don’t think it can be pulled more than once a decade. Ya gotta give GMs time to forget.
