Splash panel of the neon sign for The Lightning Bar & Saloon
Ada is walking into the bar, where Greg is bartending.
Ada: Hey Greg, anyone in tonight?
Greg: Ada, right? Rory is shooting some pool in the back. Word of advice, don't let her hustle you.
Katie is concentrating really hard on a pool shot. Rory is leaning against the table.
Rory: Hey Ada, glad to see you aren't dead or in jail.
Ada (from offscreen): Rumors of my arrest have been greatly exaggerated.
Ada and Rory are watching Katie try to line up her shot.
Ada: My first job went well, but I've got to admit, I don't really know where to go from here. What do you do between jobs?
Katie has moved to the other side of the table, still trying to line up a shot.
Rory: Usually, I spend my time planning the next Job. I like to have a bunch of backup plans before I jump into anything.
Katie has moved to a different position on the table again, still angling.
Katie: I never have the patience for that level of scheming. I just keep my gear with me and strike when the moment presents itself.
A shot from the side of the table. Rory is mildly heckling Katie.
Rory: Is the moment for that shot ever going to present itself? You're 6 balls behind, Katie, just take a crack at it!
