1 EXT. STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO - DAY We pan along with twenty five year old oriental beauty SANDY CHEN. Sandy, wearing a tight mini skirt, her long black hair flowing in the bay area breeze, as she quickly walks down the street. Several MEN turn their heads, admiring her gorgeous looks. She quickly walks up the steps to her apartment buil-ding. Minutes later we see Officer Sandy Chen emerge from the apartment building, now dressed in her police uniform. INT. LOCKER ROOM - SAN FRANCISCO DEA POLICE We see a trio of tough hard-nosed cops, getting dressed to go on duty. They grumble amongst themselves. A veteran cop JOE SUTTON let's his angered emotions out, as he tosses his st-reet clothes into his locker. JOE Damn! They're sending a female cop ..to work with us! Twenty years I've been on the force. Now I gotta work with girl cop? Joe angrily slips into his uniform. JOHNNY BROCK a young, brash cop adds scornfully, as he undresses. JOHNNY Yeah, that means we're going have to be extra careful she do- esn't get us killed. DAVE MALONEY a stocky cop, also vents his frustration. DAVE We gotta enough trouble watching out for ourselves. Now they send us a greenhorn, prissy female cop?! Dave loads his automatic pistol. Joe places his cap on, then shakes his head in disgust. JOE Why do women today have to prove they can do everything a man does? Why can't they be content doing what they do best? Cooking..cleaning ..and that kinda stuff? Sargent MIKE GARRETT enters the locker room. MIKE Is..ah..SHE here yet? Johnny, dressed now only in his jock strap. Scoffs mockingly. 2 Johnny clutching his crotch, pumps his hips. JOHNNY No. Too bad she's missing the show! Then we hear the strong female voice of Officer Sandy Chen ring out from the doorway. SANDY Hey! I wouldn't brag buddy! I've seen better! The police officers turn quickly to the doorway. There we pan up from the floor, up to the tough looking female officer in full DEA uniform. Sandy Chen, attractive in a tomboyish way. Her hair up in a short pony tail, sans any make-up, dark sunglasses cover her eyes, as she chomps on a tooth pick. She walks forward, glances at the large mirror behind Johnny, which reveals his bare butt. She places her foot ontop of a bench, tilts her head. Then with wry grin on her face, she reads Officer Brock's name on his locker behind him. ( cont'd ) Although I do have to say Officer Brock...You got a hell of a nice ass! Johnny backs up in shock, holding his trousers in front of himself. JOHNNY Hey! Lady! Don't you think, of knocking first?!! Sandy steps forward, her grin replaced by a serious expression. She juts her hand out to Mike. SANDY My Name's Chen. Officer Sandy Chen.I was Transferred over from Seattle DEA. Sgt. Garrett? Mike somewhat surprised, at the sight of the tough Officer Chen, offers his hand. The two shake hands. MIKE Ah..yeah Sgt. Mike Garrett. Ah that's ah officer Joe Sutton, Officer Dave Maloney. Dave and Joe shake hands with their new officer. Johnny hurriedly slipping into his trousers, embarrassed over ( cont'd ) 3 at having been caught with his pants down. Mike playfully points to the red-faced Johnny. MIKE I believe you..ahem met Officer Johnny Brock? Johnny quickly tucking in his shirt, and buckling his pants, just gives Sandy a quick nod of his head. Sandy returns the gesture with a slight grin on her face. Mike then with a more serious expression. ( cont'd ) Ok now that we're all here. ( beat ) We got a tip there's some drug action on Blaine street. ( sly grin ) We're going to sort of drop in on them...unexpec- tedly. Let's go! EXT. DEA PARKING LOT - LATE AFTERNOON Johnny carrying a shotgun, Dave a battering ram, pile into their car with Joe at the wheel. MIKE ( cont'd ) Chen, since your the new kid on the block, your with me. Chen quickly gets into the passenger's side of the car. Mike at the wheel leads Joe out of the parking lot. EXT. RUNDOWN NEIGHBORHOOD - SAN FRANCISCO - LATE AFTERNOON The two DEA cars slowly pull up to the corner. INT. JOE'S CAR JOE That new Officer Chen..she ain't that prissy at all. DAVE ( scoffing laugh ) Hell no. She's damn bold. Dave pats Johnny on the back, in a teasing manner. ( playful wink ) Right Johnny? 4 Johnny merely glowers in embarrassment. INT. MIKE'S CAR MIKE This is it. Mike and Sandy exit their car. The gray haired Joe stays behind the wheel of his car. Mike meets up with Johnny toting his shotgun, and Dave battering ram in hand. Johnny sneers at Sandy. JOHNNY ( sarcastic sting ) Is..SHE..going in with us?! Sandy, shoots back quickly. SANDY Yeah Brock. I just might have to cover your pretty ass. Dave his hand over his mouth smirks out loud. DAVE Oh damn!..ha, ha. Mike in a strong tone barks out. MIKE Ok enough. We gotta drug party we gotta bust. The four cops sneak up onto the porch of the old vacant looking house. Johnny peeks in the front window. He looks over to Mike, shakes his head indicating no one is present. SANDY Want me to go around back? MIKE No. We gotta take 'em in one quick rush. Mike draws his revolver, Sandy draws her automatic pistol. ( takes deep gasp of air ) Ok. Let's do it! Dave slams the battering ram into the door, CRASH the door knocked off it's hinges. The four cops storm through the house. ( shouts ) ( cont'd ) 5 MIKE ( cont'd ) THIS IS A RAID! YOUR ALL UNDER ARREST!! We hear the screams of a scantily clad WOMAN as she dashes from one of the bedrooms, running down to the long hallway. FEMALE EIIIYYAA!! Then six tough looking THUGS storm from the two bedrooms each brandishing semi-automatic pistols. The four cops are met by a hail of bullets, pinning them down at the entrance of the house. Glass from the widows showers the front entrance. Then the DEA cops return the fire. Mike is hit high in the shoulder in the exchange. He cringes in pain, dropping to the floor. Sandy squatting over Mike, covering him. Quickly she fires point blank at two of the Thugs hitting one in the chest, the other in the leg as he tries to flee. THUG ( holding his leg ) AGGHHH!! Damn! Go! GO! We see the four other Thugs fleeing down the hallway, through a misty cloud of dust of plaster caused by the gunfire. The sound of their footsteps is heard, then a crash, as they smash open the back door making good their escape through the rear exit. The front of the house covered with bullets. The plaster mist hangs in the air. The four officers quickly pick themselves up then brush off the plaster dust from their uniforms. Sandy and Dave help the injured Mike to his feet. SANDY You ok? MIKE ( grimacing ) Ahh..Yeah. Suddenly through the misty haze of plaster dust Sandy sees the image of the Thug she had shot in the leg. He is standing up, braced against the wall. His gun pointed directly at Johnny's head. Sandy pushes Johnny aside. SANDY LOOK OUT BROCK!! Then with pinpoint accuracy she shoots the Thug in the arm, he drops his gun, slides down the wall, smearing blood from his shoulder down the wall, as he collapses onto the ( cont'd ) 6 floor. Johnny stunned, speechless. Mike quickly radios in for help. MIKE We got a shootout at fifty Blaine street. Two suspects down. Dave checks the Thugs vital signs. DAVE They're still alive..but losing a lot of blood. MIKE Send a ambulance quick! Mike and his team, with pistols drawn slowly venture down the long hallway not knowing what to expect. ( to Sandy ) Hey..Chen..ah thanks for covering me. SANDY Anytime. I know you'd do the same for me Sgt. Garrett. Dave his eyes darting back and forth. DAVE Hey Mike think there's anymore? MIKE I don't know. Hope not. They pass one of the bedrooms We see the scantly Clad Woman, huddled in the corner of the bedroom, lying on the floor, weeping, trembling. INT. REAR BEDROOM Sandy cautiously enters the bedroom, she kneels down next to the Young Woman, then talks to her in a gentle tone. SANDY You ok..honey? The terrified young girl, too frightened to speak, she nods her head. Then from the corner of Sandy's eye she sees something that makes her dive onto the floor. Covering the young Woman. A split second later the bedroom windows are shattered by the ( cont'd ) 7 hail of bullets from automatic weapons coming from the backyard. Sandy shouts out to the others. SANDY THE BASTARDS ARE OUTSIDE!! Sandy, on her hands and knees crawls over to one of the windows, then returns fire with her automatic pistol. Dave and Johnny join Sandy at the other rear window, backing her up and SANDY'S POV We see the four Thugs make a break for it. They dive into their car. We then hear the screech of their car tires as they tear down the back driveway to the front entrance. DAVE COME ON THEY"RE GETTING AWAY! Sandy turns to the frightened girl who is now weeping in hysterics covering her face with her hands. SANDY Hang in there, an ambulance is on the way. Sandy then joins her partners who are dashing down the long hallway to the front entrance. EXT. FRONT OF HOUSE - AFTERNOON Dave and Johnny pile into Joe's car. Mike standing in front of his car. grimacing in pain, holding his hand over his sho-ulder wound. Sandy runs to the driver's side of Mike's car. SANDY ( cont'd ) I think I'd better drive! Mike, swallowing his pride, reluctantly nods his head. Then he quickly gets in on the passenger's side. MIKE Ok..but take it easy..new car...just got it. Before Mike can finish speaking. Sandy floors the car, the wheels spin on the loose gravel as she speeds ahead of Joe's car, in hot pursuit of the Thugs getaway car. Mike glances at her with an expression of surprise. EXT. STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO - AFTERNOON 8 The high speed intense chase, winds through the hilly streets of the city, around hair pin turns. Sandy quickly gaining on the getaway car. INT. MIKE"S CAR Mike hanging on to his seat, a worried look on his face. MIKE Hey..slow down a little! SANDY You want to catch them? MIKE Yeah. I wanna keep on living too. INT. JOE'S CAR DAVE Man! That girl drives like a bat outta hell. ( beat ) And you see her..back there? Dives right in the line fire, damn what a gutsy woman. Johnny a tinge of jealousy merely nods his head. EXT. STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO - BAY PIER WAREHOUSE - AFTERNOON We see the getaway car pullover, then the four thugs dash into the vacant warehouse. The two cop cars come to a screeching halt right behind the abandon getaway car. The officers leap out of their cars, guns drawn. Mike having a liitle difficulty geting out of the car. MIKE Ahh..owww..damn shoulder. DAVE You better sit this one out Mike. The veteran Joe, implores with Mike for one last chance on an assignment. JOE Let me go in for you Mike? MIKE For God's sake Joe you only ( cont'd ) 9 MIKE ( cont'd ) got two weeks till you retire. We had an agreement, you can't risk it. Joe a glistening of excitement in his eyes, he feels young, rejuvenated once more. JOE Mike. I'm a veteran of twenty freaking years. I know how to handle myself. ( beat ) Let me lead one more assignment? Mike grimacing, reluctantly hands Joe his service revolver. MIKE ( sarcastic tone ) Ok go. But don't go and get your- self killed. Be careful. We don't want any dead heroes. Joe, excited, pats Mike on the back. Then waves to his team. JOE Come on! Let's go get those bastards! The four cops crouched down, approach the vacant building. The gunfire from the building keeping them pinned down. SANDY Wait..you notice?..Only two guns..the other two must be out of ammo. Joe winks at Sandy. JOE Your really on your toes Chen. ( beat ) You always wear them sunglasses? Sandy removes the shades.. ( cont'd ) Tough...and pretty too..I Like that in cop. Sandy winks back. SANDY Why thank you for the comple- ( cont'd ) 10 SANDY ( cont'd ) liment...Joe. Joe then shouts out in a gruff tone, waving his gun. JOE We got em out gunned. Let's go get 'em!! The four storm the warehouse house spaying it with gunfire. We see three of the Thugs disappear from the windows of the warehouse. JOHNNY ( over excited ) They don't have any ammo left! As the four cops near the building. Sandy has an uneasy feeling in her gut. Then to the left we see the forth THUG hiding behind a oil barrel. He takes dead aim at the four. Sandy shouts out. Joe hits the dirt, but only after he takes a bullet to the leg. SANDY LOOK OUT!!! Joe goes down clutching his right leg. Thug # 4 flees. JOE ( shouts in pain ) Agghhh!! His fellow officers kneel next to him, He waves them off quickly assuring them he's alright. ( grimacing ) Just a leg wound. Go..go get the bastards! The three officers now with pent-up anger, over two of their comrades getting injured, charge the building with vengeance in their eyes. INT. WAREHOUSE In the dark catacombs of the warehouse. We see one of the Thugs. THUG # 1 tosses his gun down upon seeing the three cops approaching him. He puts his hands over his head. THUG # 1 Hey, ok don't shoot! Sandy shouts out in angered tone. 11 SANDY Where's the other two?!! Thug # 1 Nervously responds. THUG # 1 I-I don't know..must have taken off. Sandy, suspicious of him. SANDY He's lying..He wouldn't stay behind. Then out from the shadows a BIG THUG grabs Sandy from behind. He places a knife against her throat, then yells out to her partners. BIG THUG Ok drop your guns. Or I slit the pretty cop's throat! Dave and Johnny do as ordered. Then the sleazy big Thug whispers into Sandy's ear. ( demented tone ) You too...or I'll rearrange that pretty face of yours. Sandy drops her gun to the floor. Thug # 2 appears from the shadows of the warehouse, he pounds a two by four plank in the palm of his hand. The Big Thug shouts out to his buddies. ( hurried tone ) Grab their guns...take care of 'em. Thug # 3 appears, a menacing gleam in his eyes. THUG # 2 First let's give them a working over...for all the trouble they'- ve caused. Thug # 3 eyes Sandy, as he picks up a two by four plank. THUG # 3 Then will have us some fun with the pretty cop. The Big Thug slides his hand up and down Sandy's curvaceous figure. 12 Sandy infuriated, spins into action. She slams her elbow into the big Thug's gut. The impact enabling her to break free of his grip. She spins around facing the menacing thug. BIG THUG ( grunts in pain ) Ughghh! ( growls in anger ) So. Ya wanna play rough bi- tch? Ok. SANDY Take your best shot!! The Big thug approaches her waving the knife at her in a mocking gesture. Dave and Johnny have their hands full keeping the other two Thugs from beating them into submi-ssion, as the two are beaten with the two by four planks. DAVE & JOHNNY HEYY! OWWW! AGGHH!!! Sandy, in a kung fu stance ready to make her stand. Then with lightning reflexes, she spins into action, first by placing a perfectly placed kick right into the big Thug's groin, then a quick hand chop to his neck sends the big man to one knee. Sandy finishes the job with a fast spinning kung fu kick to the big Thug's face, which sends him crashing to the concrete floor. She then quickly comes to her partners aid. She dives right into the middle of the fray. With lightning spinning kicks she sends the two Thugs sprawling onto the floor, both knocked unconscious. She then helps Dave and Johnny to their feet. Both bruised and bloodied, but not seriously injured. DAVE ( amazed ) Your one hell of an Officer.. ...Sandy. Glad you we're wi- th us. Johnny slightly embarrassed, now extends his hand to Sandy. He shakes her hand in appreciation for her saving his butt. Realizing her true value as a fellow cop. JOHNNY Ahhh same here...Sandy. SANDY ( flashes quick smile ) Thanks. ( then serious expression ) Let's get these bums cuffed. 13 INT. DEA OFFICE OF CAPTAIN BRADLEY - FOLLOWING MORNING We see the group of cops celebrating, patting Sandy on the back. Sandy takes a sporting ribbing from her comrades. Dave shouts out. DAVE You should have seen Sandy in action. Man she kicked those son of bitching thugs asses. JOHNNY Yeah..I was sure glad she was on our side. She fought like the freaking terminator man. Joe sitting down, his leg in cast. He echoes in. JOE She was awesome...a real take charge cop. Proud to have ser- ved with you Sandy. SANDY ( slightly embarrassed ) Thanks Joe. Then Mike chimes in with his sentiments. MIKE ( turns to the others ) I don't think any of us doubt now, that you can pull your own weight in this department. ALL Here! Here! Dave raises his coffee cup toasting their new hero. DAVE Here's to Sandy Chen the tou- ghest, meanest, kung fu kicking, gun totting cop ever to wear a badge. They all raise their coffee cups high. ALL ( cheering loudly ) YEEEAAAAAAHHHH!!! 14 SANDY Come on fellas, your embarrassing me...your making me blush. CAPTAIN BRADLEY enters his office, waving his hands, for the group to quiet down. CAPTAIN BRADLEY Ok! Ok! Everyone quiet down for a minute. ( beat ) I share in your acknowledgement of officer Chen's fine accomplis- hments and police work yesterday. ( beat ) But today's another day. There's something really big going down. ( excited tone ) ) We got some inside info a leading drug kingpin...may be paying our town a visit...If he does. We got a chance to nab him. The Captain leans over a new computer. Then he unsuccessfully tries to bring up some vital data to the screen. ( frustrated ) If I..I can get the data.. from this blasted new comp- uter... ( cursing to himself ) Damn...How's this thing wo- ok?! Sandy her arms folded, quickly comes to her Captain's aid. SANDY Maybe I can help Captain Bradley. The Captain offers her the seat in front of the computer. Sandy quickly taps at the computer keys like a veteran computer whiz. She brings up various data menus, which brings a delighted smile to her Captain's face. He beams with joy like a young child just finding his toys underneath his Christmas tree. ( to the Captain ) Are these the files your sea- rching for? CAPTAIN BRADLEY ( excited ) Ahhh..yes..yes. ( points to the screen ) ( cont'd ) 15 CAPTAIN BRADLEY ( cont'd ) Bring up this file and that one. Sandy taps at the computer keys, bringing up the designated files onto the screen. ( points to computer screen ) Ok..print that photo and that one. Sandy hits the computer print out key. We hear the laser printer. Dave jokingly pats Joe on the back. DAVE Well Sandy's a computer whiz too. ( beat ) If she can take short hand, you got yourself a secretary Joe. JOE I don't cherish the idea of riding the desk my last two weeks. Mike gives Joe a friendly grin. MIKE Hey..look at the bright side.. You had the action you wanted. Joe pats his cast on his leg. JOE Yeah...I got the reminder... ( beat ) If it wasn't for Sandy..I'd be six feet under, pushing up roses right now. Captain Bradley snatches the hard copy print outs from the laser printer's tray. He waves the two printout copies in his hands. CAPTAIN BRADLEY OK! Listen up everyone! This is the biggest assignment we've ever had. ( waves photo copy ) Meet Sam Vincent! One of the biggest drug king pin's in criminal history. CLOSE UP OF PHOTO 16 We see the photo. Vincent a bland looking banker type. Dave peering at the photo. DAVE Guy looks like a banker! Johnny gets a closer look at the photo. JOHNNY I think he looks like a dork! Captain Bradley takes a sip of coffee, then sits on the edge of a desk. CAPTAIN BRADLEY That's right. That's why nobody suspected anything from him for years. Mike takes sip of coffee, then adds. MIKE ( ponders ) Last I heard of Vincent..were rumors he was thinking of mo- ving in on the state's drug traf- ficking operations. CAPTAIN BRADLEY Your right Mike. He's been top dog in the orient for years. Now if the rumors are correct..He wants to do the same here. If he gets his foot in the door over here..We're all in really big trouble. JOHNNY Excuse me captain. But couldn't we just arrest him when he enters the country? Captain Bradley sighs in frustration. CAPTAIN BRADLEY Unfortunately it's not that easy. ( beat ) Vincent has a dozen respectable sideline businesses he's set up with his drug trafficking millions. ( beat ) He goes under various aliases. He's very elusive. Last time, all we could get on him was a parking violation. 17 The Captain paces back and forth. CAPTAIN BRADLEY But we're going to catch him red handed this time around. JOHNNY ( confused ) How captain? CAPTAIN BRADLEY ( sly smile ) Surveillance. Mike, his eyes perked up in excitement. MIKE A stakeout?! CAPTAIN BRADLEY Right Mike. ( rapidly ) Mike. You Dave and Johnny will be supplied with unmarked surveillance van. Your to monitor Vincent's every move. Mike Dave and Johnny listening to the Captain's every word, a tinge of excitement in their eyes. Sandy meekly speaks up. SANDY ( disappointed tone ) Ahh...I'm not included in the stakeout team Captain? The Captain places his hand on Sandy's shoulder. Then with wry grin and smile on his face. CAPTAIN BRADLEY Oh..you are officer Chen, yes you definitely are. ( beat ) Your going to be the bait, that lures our elusive fish into our trap. MIKE ( excited tone ) She's going in undercover?! CAPTAIN BRADLEY ( nods his head ) ( cont'd ) 18 CAPTAIN BRADLEY ( cont'd ) Yep. SANDY ( excited ponder ) Am I going in as a business contact? CAPTAIN BRADLEY Nope. SANDY ( puzzled expression ) As a call girl? CAPTAIN BRADLEY ( teasing smile ) Nope. Sandy completely puzzled. SANDY What am I going undercover as then captain? Captain Bradley displays the other print out photo. CLOSE UP OF PRINTOUT PHOTO We see Vincent, surrounded by three lovely Geisha girls. Sandy a stunned expression on her face, stands up in shock. ( cont'd ) A GEISHA GIRL?!! ( beat ) You want me to go undercover as a..a..geisha girl captain?! Everyone except Sandy and the Captain bursts out in laughter. DAVE Ha, ha aha, somehow I have trouble seeing that captain. ( beat ) I mean here you have a tough kung fu fighting cop..who pra- ctically demolished a drug ring single handed. And you want her to go uncover as a gentle, submi- ssive Geisha? Ha, ha, ha. Mike wiping the tears of laughter from his eyes. MIKE I can't see Sandy...wearing a ( cont'd ) 19 MIKE ( cont'd ) kimono...Waiting hand and foot on this scum bag Vincent..ha, ha. SANDY ( stunned ) Captain!..Geisha girls are soft, prissy, giggly. ( beat ) I-I I'm nothing like that! DAVE Oh I'll vouch for her on that. ha, ha, ha. SANDY I don't know the first thing about being a geisha Captain? The Captain waving his hands to quiet the laughter. CAPTAIN Ok.ok. if you'll all quiet down..I'll explain. The Captain holds up the picture once more, as he sits on the edge of a desk. ( cont'd ) Vincent has the hots for geisha girls. It's a known fact that in the orient he's a frequent customer at Japan's geisha houses. ( emphasizes ) And...with certain caring geishas. It's reported he lets his guard down. Captain Bradley points to Sandy. ( cont'd ) That's where you come in Officer Chen. Sandy a shocked, upset expression. SANDY Captain!....Your not suggesting that..I sleep with Vincent are you?!! The Captain motioning with his hands for Sandy to calm down. CAPTAIN BRADLEY No, no. All I'm saying is ( cont'd ) 20 CAPTAIN BRADLEY ( cont'd ) make him happy..feel good, relaxed. Make him feel he can trust you. ( sly grin ) Because Officer Chen your going to be wired for sound. Everything Vinc- ent says is going to be taped by the surveillance van. ( urgent ) Officer Chen we want you to try and get him to reveal his plans, his operations in the states. The Captain takes a deep breath then, ( cont'd ) If we're successful..we'll be able to put Mr. Vincent behind bars for a long long time. The Captain paces back and forth. ( cont'd ) Officer Chen we're going to set you up in one of the most exc- lusive geisha houses in town. They'll teach you everything you need to know. ( to Sandy ) Are you in Officer Chen? Sandy a pensive, slight concerned expression, nods her head. SANDY Yeah. I'm in. Captain Bradley CLAPS his hands together. CAPTAIN BRADLEY ( elated ) Good! Then a serious expression appears on the Captain's face. ( cont'd ) And if things go wrong..or Vincent suspects he's being setup. ( beat ) Your going to need every ounce of the toughness you've demonstrated Officer Chen...To get out alive. The Captain then turns to the Surveillance team. 21 CAPTAIN BRADLEY And you on the surveillance team. ( beat ) You suspect any trouble, or believe Officer Chen to be in any danger. Call for back up, and try get her out. Captain Bradley holds up the close up photo of Vincent for all to view. ( cont'd ) Everyone take a good look at him. ( beat ) Don't let the naive, simple looking face fool you. Behind this face is the calculating, cunning mind of a criminal. CLOSEUP ON PHOTO OF VINCENT INT. LOBBY - HOTEL IMPERIAL - SAN FRANCISCO We back away from the face of advertising sales executive JERRY CONNERS. A dead ringer look-alike for Sam Vincent. Conners at the front desk of the swank hotel. He sees a dish of candy on the counter. He takes a few, pops them into his mouth. Conners glances around, with a sly look. Seeing no one looking he dumps all of the candy into his suitjacket pocket. The FRONT DESK CLERK approaches Jerry. FRONT DESK CLERK Are you checking in sir? JERRY Yes. Name's Conners. Jerry Con- ners...I'm a advertising execu- tive with the pharmaceutical firm of Smith Smith & Brown. The Clerk checks the registrations on the computer screen. FRONT DESK CLERK Yes sir..we have the penthouse suite reserved for you. JERRY ( hurriedly ) That's it. Oh. Did I receive a call from a Mr. Ike Akato? The desk Clerk picks up note on top of the desk, hands it to Jerry. 22 FRONT DESK CLERK Yes. Mr. Akato apologizes for not being here to meet you. His plane flight from Tokyo is delayed in Hawaii. He says he'll call you. Clerk looks at the clock on the wall, it reads one PM. ( cont'd ) At Six o'clock our time. Jerry takes the piece of paper, then follows the BELLHOP carrying his luggage towards the elevator. We pan quickly over to the corner of the hotel lobby. We see a shifty looking character RAZOR, holding up a newspaper in front of his face. Razor, who has a deep razor cut down the side of his face, lowers his paper, watching Jerry's every move, till Jerry disappears behind the closing elevator doors. Razor quickly picks up a pay phone, drops a coin in then dials San Francisco's drug King pin MR. ITO. RAZOR Mr. Ito...He's here. ANGLE MR. ITO Mr. Ito, who we only see as a shadowy silhouetted figure. MR. ITO Did he see you Razor? RAZOR ( OS ) No. MR. ITO Stay out of sight. Vincent is a shrewd one. BACK TO RAZOR Razor pulls his gun out partially from underneath his suit jacket. RAZOR You want me to take him out? MR. ITO ( OS ) No. Watch his every move. Report back to me what he's up to. 23 MR. ITO Then when the time is right. ( beat ) Mr. Vincent will be sorry for setting foot on my turf. INT. PENTHOUSE SUITE - HOTEL IMPERIAL Jerry unpacking his luggage. We hear the sound of a CLEANING LADY vacuuming the hallway outside his room. He quickly opens the door. JERRY ( calling out ) Oh Miss! Miss! The Cleaning Lady turns off her vacuuming cleaner. CLEANING LADY Yes sir? Is something wrong? Jerry motions with his finger, in an urgent manner. JERRY Yes there definitely is. Could please come in here? The Cleaning Lady slightly confused, follows Jerry into the Penthouse suite. ( cont'd ) Alright, alright. First. Never ever turn the air conditioner on while I'm a guest in this suite. Jerry, turns off the air conditioner, he opens the window. ( cont'd ) I like fresh air..Ok...understand? CLEANING LADY Ahhh....Yes sir. Jerry motioning with his finger, in an arrogant manner. JERRY Alright, alright, alright. That's not all..in here, follow me! The Cleaning Lady follows Jerry into the bedroom. Jerry tears back the covers off of the bed. ( cont'd ) See this?!! 24 CLEANING LADY See what sir? Jerry pounds the palm of his hand onto the pillow. JERRY These pillows!! That's what?! They're not plump and firm. ( beat ) I can't sleep on a pillow that's not plump and firm. The Cleaning Lady trying to get a word in edgewise from the fast talking, belligerent Jerry. CLEANING LADY I'll ah..get you some other pil- lows for you sir. Jerry in a raised voice. JERRY Alright..alright. Not just any pillows. Plump and firm. CLEANING LADY Ahh yes sir...ah..plump and firm. JERRY Ok. That's not all. I can't sleep on feather down pillows. get me foam pillows. ( talking rapidly ) Alright..alright....also. The Cleaning lady getting frightened of Jerry's strange behavior. CLEANING LADY There's more sir? JERRY ( indignant ) There certainly is. Jerry whips off the pillow case from the pillow, then holds it underneath the terrified Cleaning Lady's nose. ( cont'd ) Go ahead sniff. Take a sniff! And tell me what you smell? The Cleaning Lady sniffs the pillow case with a confused look in her eyes. 25 CLEANING LADY I..ah don't smell anything sir? JERRY Well I'll tell you what I smell. ( beat ) Human hair..the scent of someo- ne else's hair. Jerry rips the sheets from the bed, dumps the pillows and pillow cases into the stunned Cleaning Lady's arms. ( cont'd ) And take these sheets too ...I like fresh smelling sheets. CLEANING LADY Ahh yes sir. Jerry takes the frightened Cleaning Lady by the arm leading her over to the bathroom. JERRY Ok. Now over here. Jerry takes the Cleaning Lady's hand. He runs her hand over the towels hanging on the rack. ( cont'd Tell me what you feel? The Cleaning Lady glances at Jerry not knowing what to expect. CLEANING LADY A..towel sir? Jerry then runs her hand more aggressively over the towel. JERRY I'll tell you what I feel. ( beat ) I feel rough..I feel sandpaper. I feel sandpaper rough. Jerry whips the towels off the rack, then piles them out into the out stretched arms of the Cleaning Lady, on top of the other items. ( cont'd ) That will never do. Take them and rinse them in fabric softener. ( aloof tone ) 26 JERRY Alight..alright...you get that done. Then hurry back. I'll have something else for you to do.. Jerry escorts the Cleaning Lady to the door. She struggles with the burden of her heavy load. Jerry drops a few pieces of candy into her pocket from his suitjacket pocket. ( cont'd ) Here's a little something for you. Jerry SLAMS the door behind her as she exits. EXT. PARKING LOT - DEA HEADQUARTERS - AFTERNOON We see the DEA team members, dressed in their civilian clothes, walking to Dave's new Cadillac. DAVE Let's go have a few brews and unwind. I know this quiet litt- le place. Mike, Johnny and Sandy pile into Dave's new Cadillac. INT. DAVE'S CAR Mike admiring Dave's new set of wheels. MIKE Moving up in class..eh Dave? DAVE Don't remind me. The payments are killing me. Dave pulls out of the parking lot, then drives down to the main street. EXT. SHADY PART OF TOWN - SAN FRANCISCO - AFTERNOON The four get out of the car. We see three motorbikes parked in front of THE BUCCANEER BAR. A shabby looking exterior. MIKE Dave what kind of place you bringing us to? DAVE Aw don't mind the exterior. The place is different than your run of the mill bars. 27 INT. THE BUCCANEER BAR The place is smoked filled. The PATRONS mostly rough looking bikers, glare at the foursome as they enter. It's immediately apparent the atmosphere here is not at all friendly. The four cops take a seat at table. MIKE ( whispers to Dave ) You sure..about this place? DAVE It's cool..Don't let the sur- roundings concern you. Everyone here is just interested in having a good time. JOHNNY ( whispers to Mike ) I think I cuffed a couple of the..ah..patrons in here. SANDY It's not exactly a four star restaurant. Dave waving his hands. DAVE Ok stop the ribbing...Give the place a chance. A tough looking WAITRESS approaches their table. She definitely has an attitude problem. She snaps her gum constantly as she stands besides their table. WAITRESS Yeah..whada ya have? DAVE Ahhh your special on a pitcher of beer. The Waitress gives the foursome a unfriendly glare, then walks to the bar. MIKE Oh..so that's the angle...Save on some dough to pay off your limousine? The Waitress places the pitcher and four glasses, down in the center of their table, rather unceremoniously and clumsily. Sandy picks up the one of the dirty glasses, she takes a ( cont'd ) 28 napkin, then proceeds to wipe off the dirty glass. SANDY Can't say too much for the establishment's hygiene. Mike takes sip of beer, then glances at Sandy with an inquisitive expression. MIKE So tell us a little bit about yourself mystery lady? DAVE Yeah we didn't have a chance to get acquainted..you stepped right into the action your first day on the job. MIKE Handled yourself very well too. Sandy slightly blushing from the attention. SANDY Not Much to tell really. I was born in China, my father was French..or Dutch...a Sailor... Never knew him..got killed when I was very young. My mother was Chinese and kind of Ill..So I was raised by my father's sister and her husband. MIKE When did you come to the states? SANDY When I was about four or five. ( beat ) My aunt and her husband settled in Seattle. Lived there almost all my life. JOHNNY Ahh where did you learn the martial arts? SANDY Ohhh I always had a deep interest in martial arts. Even though my aunt wanted to raise me as a prim, proper, feminine, Caucasian, Christian girl. ( cont'd ) 29 SANDY ( cont'd ) I rebelled. I tried hard to keep my Oriental identity. ( ponders deep in thought ) But this geisha undercover assign- ment has me a little worried. DAVE After the way you handle yourself the other day...your worried about playing a sweet, gentle geisha? Sandy takes a sip of beer, then. SANDY That's it Dave...I'm afraid I'm not that good at the sweet and gentle. Been..like a tomboy all my life.. Played baseball with the guys. Always in there competing..trying to prove myself. NOTE THIS DESCRIBESBOTH SANRA BULLOCK'S CHARACTER AND SANDY CHEN Mike gives her a reassuring wink, then takes a sip of beer. MIKE Well you don't have to prove any- thing to us. SANDY I'm afraid that inner toughness I have...Well it may surface. Vincent might catch on. ( beat ) I don't want to blow the whole sta- keout. ( beat ) I got this...quick temper..when I'm around any abusive guy. And this Vin- cent sounds like he's real abusive. Mike rubs his chin, pondering, he then gives Sandy a reassuring grin. MIKE ( confidently ) Don't worry about it Sandy. Your a professional cop. You'll do fine. INT. DEA SURVEILLANCE STAKEOUT VAN - SEVERAL NIGHTS LATER We see Dave on the headset. Mike and Johnny looking through binoculars, anxiously watching the front of the setup Ryotei. Looking, listening, waiting for the notorious criminal Sam Vincent to show. The nights are long and frustrating. PLEASE NOTE PAGES 30 - 36 NOT ON THIS COMPUTER DISK. I'LL LOOK FOR THE PAGES AND SEND THEM TO YOU. RON 37 Jerry a semi-glazed look in his eyes. He's crocked. He gives Sandy a giddy half smile, straightens his tie, then brushes back his unruly hair. JERRY Hi ya...Yoshe..Name's..Jerry... Conners. Sandy a slightly stunned expression. SANDY Ah..Jerry Conners?! JERRY ( braggart ) Yeah. I'm ahhh big shot in the drug business. SANDY Oh. Really? How interesting. Yoshe like to know all about your bus- iness honorable Jerry Conners. Sandy begins massaging Jerry's neck and shoulders. JERRY Well you see...I-I.... ( in ecstasy ) Ahhh..ohhh..ahh. Oh God you orien- tal girls have the magic touch. You sure know how to please a man. Sandy whispers into Jerry's ear, in a sexy tone. SANDY Yoshe..like to please honorable Jerry Conners...very very much. JERRY Ohhhh..ahhhhh....ohhhh. Wow your unbelievable, awesome Yoshe. The kind girl..I always dreamt for.... Jerry in a drunken stupor, rambles on incoherently. INT. JERRY'S HOTEL SUITE - EARLY NEXT MORNING JERRY'S POV Through blurred vision. We see the hotel suite gradually coming into focus. We see Sandy, still in her undercover geisha attire, leaning over Jerry. A warm smile on her face. Jerry sits up. He immediately places his hand over his head, in agony from the extreme hangover he's suffering from. 38 JERRY ( moaning in pain ) Ohhhhh...Ohhh my head. Jerry rubs his eyes, then squints his eyes after staring at Sandy for a few moments. Sandy standing by Jerry's bedside. She bows, then gives him warm smile. ( cont'd ) Ohh...Wait a minute..Your that geisha girl from last night. Sandy a happy smile. SANDY Yoshe not just girl. Yoshe hono- rable Jerry's...wife. JERRY ( surprised ) What? Run that by me again?!! SANDY Yoshe. Honorable Jerry's wife. JERRY ( confused ) This has gotta be a joke. Did Ike put you up to this? Sandy displays the wedding ring on her finger. SANDY No joke. Look. JERRY ( trying to comprehend ) Now..just a damn minute!!...Just because you have a damn ring on your..FINGER..eiiyyya! ( looking at his finger ) What the hell is this wedding band doing on my finger?!! Sandy bows to Jerry. SANDY Like Yoshe say. Jerry, and Yoshe, now husband, wife. ( beat ) I...now ...American Geisha! Jerry running his hand through his hair in total shock. He falls out of bed, then staggers to his feet. 39 JERRY Oh...my God...I'm married?!! Jerry his eyes darting back and forth. ( cont'd ) It can't be. How could it be?! SANDY It true honorable husband. JERRY ( trying to think ) Stop calling me that! Sandy displays a half dozen wedding Polaroid snap shots, of she and Jerry exchanging wedding vows. SANDY But..look..See photos of wed- ding husband Jerry. Jerry nervously flipping through the photos. JERRY Ohhhh my god! She's got pictures!!! ( beat ) Wait! Who's this guy next to me? SANDY That Yoshe's good friend..honorable Mike Garret...he best man at wedding. Jerry inspecting the photos more closely. JERRY Best man? I've never met him. What's he doing with his arm around me? SANDY He holding up honorable Jerry. Who now Yoshe's husband. Jerry throws his arms up in shock, paces back and forth. JERRY Wait a minute!! You mean to tell me?!! I was so drunk..I had to be held up by a stranger..At my own wedding... which I don't even remember?!! Jerry then waves his finger at Sandy. ( cont'd ) ( cont'd ) 40 JERRY ( cont'd ) Ohhh come on now this can't be legal? Sandy opens up the dresser drawer, displays the wedding certificate to Jerry.. ( stunned ) Oh...my God...it is! Jerry leaps back into bed, he covers his head with the sheets and blankets, moaning in disbelief. ( cont'd ) This has gotta be a bad dream. Sandy picks up her cellular phone makes a quick call to Mike. SANDY He's up. INT. STAKEOUT VAN MIKE How'd he take the news? BACK TO SANDY SANDY He's still in a state of shock. ( beat ) He's going under the alias Jerry Conners. Some man Ike called him this morning. Vincent has some kind of big meeting in one hour. MIKE ( OS ) Make sure he's at that meeting. Wire him up, before he leaves. SANDY Right ( beat ) How long do you think we can pull off this husband and wife scam operation? MIKE ( OS ) I don't know? But let's try and get everything we can out of it. SANDY ( cont'd ) 41 SANDY ( cont'd ) Ok..right. I gotta get him out of bed before this Ike gets here. Sandy puts away her cellular phone. Then stands at the foot of Jerry's bed. Her arms folded, a sly grin on her face. Jerry peeks back at her, over the covers. JERRY Go away. Jerry not husband! SANDY It duty of wife Yoshe to take care of honorable husband. Yoshe takes Jerry's by the ankles, pulls him from the bed. JERRY Hey!! Hey!! What are you doing? SANDY Jerry have big meeting with big time bosses. Must get ready. Ike be here soon to pick Jerry up. JERRY I can't go like this. I gotta terrible hangover. I gotta cancel. Make it another day. Sandy dragging the uncooperative Jerry to the bathroom. INT. BATHROOM Jerry his pajamas all wrinkled, from the tussle. SANDY No. Must go. Very important for Jerry to be at meeting. Sandy quickly rips Jerry's pajama top off his chest. Jerry stunned, wraps his arms around himself. JERRY Hey! What the hell you doing? SANDY Yoshe set shower for husband. Must hurry take shower. Ike be here soon. Sandy steps forward goes to grab Jerry's pajama bottom. Jerry steps back, holding onto his pajama bottoms in desperation. 42 JERRY Heyy!! Whoa! Hold it. I can manage the bottom..thank you. ( beat ) Ahh ahem. Do you mind turning around for a second? Sandy a mischievous gleam in her eyes. Her arms folded. She turns her back to Jerry. We see the pajama bottoms flung into the corner of the bathroom, then we hear the sound of the shower curtain being drawn closed. We then see Jerry's head peeking out from behind the shower curtain. Sandy turns around towards him. ( cont'd ) Ahhh..What was your name again? SANDY Yoshe. Honorable husband. JERRY Ahh alright Yoshe. We'll sit down later and discuss this wedding mar- riage business.. It was all just a silly mistake..that's all. Sandy steps forward, she places her hand inside the shower curtain. ( cont'd ) Hey! What are you doing? SANDY Yoshe set water for husband Jerry. Sandy turns on the cold water knob full blast. Streams of ice cold water spray all over Jerry. JERRY ( screams in agony ) Yeeiie!!! STOP!!! It's ice cold!! Sandy a vindictive smile on her face, walks away. INT. HOTEL SUITE BEDROOM. Jerry enters the bedroom, wearing a thick robe, drying his hair off with a towel. We see Sandy placing Jerry's underwear and slacks ontop of his bed, his socks inside of his shoes. Jerry gives her a leery glance as he approaches her. 43 JERRY You almost froze me to death! SANDY ( bows ) So sorry honorable Jerry. ( beat ) I have clothes ready for you. Jerry reluctant to remove his bathrobe in front of this strange woman standing in front of him.. JERRY Ahh.thank you. Ahh you may go. Sandy bows then, turns and exits. SANDY Yoshe get suitcoat, tie,... for husband. Jerry shouts in in frustration. JERRY Yes you do that. And stop calling me husband! Jerry quickly slips into his briefs, then removes his robe. Giving the doorway a periodic worried check. He then slowly picks up his t-shirt. As he mumbles to himself in disgust. ( cont'd ) Damn! What a mess I got myself into. Sandy appears at the doorway. She looks at the clock on the mantel, then quickly hangs the suitcoat and tie on the door hook. Then she hurries over to Jerry. She pushes him from behind onto the bed, then quickly she takes the t-shirt and begins pulling the t-shirt over Jerry's head. SANDY Must hurry. Ike be here soon! Jerry's head pops through the opening of the t-shirt. JERRY ( shouts in displeasure ) I'm sure he won't mind waiting!! ( beat ) Now would mind getting off of me?! I can dress myself! The two wrestling and tousling ontop of the bed. 44 SANDY No look good for husband be late. JERRY I said....I can dress myself! Jerry trying to get up. Sandy pushes him back onto the bed. Then takes his slacks, and begins putting them on Jerry. ( cont'd ) Wait...hold it! Sandy pulls Jerry's slacks up to his waist, the two wrestle and tousling fighting each other all the way. When Sandy attempts to zip Jerry's fly up he protests loudly. ( cont'd ) Whoa! Hold on!..I can zip them up! ( out of breath ) Get shirt..go get shirt! Sandy quickly picks up Jerry's dress shirt, then struggles to get it on the uncooperative Jerry. ( shouts in pain ) Ok...wait let me get my arm in. ( beat ) Alright ok..easy..easy your ouch...breaking my arm! As Jerry and Sandy simultaneously button up his dress shirt. The two fumbling and fighting each other in the process. SANDY Yoshe get shoes and socks for husband. Jerry somewhat relieved at the prospect of being able to button up his own shirt. JERRY ( sigh of relief ) Yes, you get shoes and socks. Take your time. Before Jerry's knows it, Sandy grabs the shoes and socks from underneath the bed. She then grabs Jerry by his ankles flip-ping him backwards back onto the bed. In one quick thrust. Jerry bounces onto the bed and then onto the floor. ( cont'd ) OWWWW! What the hell you doing? You trying to kill me?! 45 SANDY ( hurried tone ) So sorry. Must hurry! Sandy quickly places Jerry's socks and shoes on, then helps him to his feet. With a quick move Sandy lassos Jerry around the neck with his necktie, then quickly tightens the knot. A little too tight, to the point where Jerry has difficultly breathing. He shouts out in a high squeaking, choking voice. JERRY NOT SO TIGHT!!...YOUR CHOKING ME!! Sandy grabs Jerry's suitcoat. Giving Jerry a chance to loosen the choking tie. Jerry more cooperative with Sandy with the suitcoat, as he quickly slides into it. ( cont'd ) Ok..ok..ok easy with the arms. Once the suitcoat is on Jerry. Sandy finishes up with a lint brush, brushing his suitcoat off. She then adjusts Jerry's tie. Then takes a comb and combs his hair quickly. ( cont'd ) Oww..oww easy with the comb. Sandy stands back. Jerry looks at himself in the mirror, with a gleam of egotistic, arrogance in his eyes. We hear a loud knock KNOCK! KNOCK! at the front door, and then Ike's voice calling out. IKE ( OS ) Jerry! It's Ike! Sandy a pleased smile, she then bows to Jerry. SANDY We make just in time. Jerry quickly walks towards the door, with Sandy right behind him. JERRY ( sarcastically ) Yes. If we ever decide to enter the Olympics for team dressing. We're sure to take the gold. Jerry opens the door, Ike steps in the two shake hands. Then Sandy and Ike bow to one another. The two converse in Japanese. Jerry a puzzled look on his face. 46 JERRY What did you say to her? Ike with a proud smile on his face, pats Jerry on the back. IKE I congratulated her on her marriage to a wonderful friend of mine. JERRY ( disgruntled ) Ohh. Ike then with a wink in his eyes. IKE Well if your ready newlywed. We gotta big meeting with some real big shots to attend. Jerry picks up his briefcase, then heads for the door. Sandy opens the door for the two, then bows several times. Jerry bows twice, then holds his hand up. JERRY Whoa...one is sufficient. They exit, Sandy closes the door behind them. Then hurries over to the penthouse suite front window. She stares out the window to the street below. SANDY'S POV We see Ike's stretch black limo parked right in front of the hotel. The CHAUFFEUR standing by the limo door. Then we pan to directly across the street. We see the police stakeout surveillance van parked parallel to the stretch limo. Sandy takes out her cellular phone from the underneath her kimono. Then contacts Mike in the van below. SANDY Mike! INT. STAKEOUT VAN Mike watching the limo through his binoculars. Dave hands Mike the phone. MIKE Yeah I hear you Sandy. What's ( cont'd ) 47 MIKE ( cont'd ) going on? BACK TO SANDY SANDY Conners..Vincent, left with a man named Ike.

SANDY ( OS ) Yeah, The micro receiver is underneath his suitcoat lapel. MIKE Good. You hang loose we're going to shadow them. ( beat ) Right..bye. Mike hands the cellular phone to Dave, who is listening intently on his headset. Mike his binoculars trained on the limo across the street from them. MIKE'S POV - THROUGH THE VAN'S WINDOW. We see the stretch limo then pull away for the curb. Mike pats the driver of the van, Johnny on the shoulder. MIKE ( cont'd ) Follow 'em. Keep it close. Johnny turns the van around then pursues the stretch limo. ( to Dave ) Picking anything up? Dave frantically turning knobs and switches in a near panic. DAVE ( cont'd ) 48 DAVE ( cont'd ) With the hell?! Something's wrong! All I'm picking up is static. Mike a stunned expression on his face. He puts his binoculars down then spins towards Dave. MIKE Oh..damn! Can you fix it?! Dave perspiration beading on his forehead, as he nervously searches for a remedy to the problem. Johnny pulls the van over to the curb. JOHNNY Mike. They're stopping. Mike glances through the window with his binoculars. MIKE'S POV We see the Chauffeur open the limo back door. Jerry and Ike exit. The two then walk towards a high rise modern office building. Mike nervously glancing back at Dave. MIKE Come on Dave. We need to hear what's going on at that meeting. Dave the perspiration streaming down his face. He tries everything possible to pick up the bug planted under Jerry's suit lapel. DAVE ( elated ) I'm starting to pick up something. It's faint..but I think I'm on the right track! Mike a relieved expression, breathes a deep sigh of relief, then he pats Dave on the shoulder, giving him encouragement. MIKE Atta boy. Keep trying!! INT. ELEVATOR - OFFICE BULKING We see Jerry and Ike riding up to the top floor. The two look up at the light as it indicates the ascending floors. The two unusually quiet. Ike a disappointed expression on his face. then ( cont'd ) 49 Ike folds his arms, turns towards Jerry. IKE Jerry..you'll be making a big mistake if you have your marriage to Yoshe annulled. JERRY Ike! I was drunk! I didn't know what I was doing. I don't even know..this..ah..Yoshe girl. The elevator doors open up, the two exit. We backaway slowly as the two walk towards us, walking down the long hallway. IKE The Japanese executives you'll be meeting today are from the old Tokyo school of....sacred tradition. ( beat ) You get your marriage annulled from a Japanese geisha girl ( beat ) Well...they might take it as an insult. You'd be risking a possi- ble merger between our two compa- nies. ( beat ) Jerry you'd be risking..a merger worth millions to both sides! Jerry stops in front of vending machine, he places a few coins in, pulls the handle, then retrieves a bag of chips. JERRY My breakfast..didn't have time to eat. Jerry waves the bag of chips in front of Ike's face. ( beat ) I'm sure they'll understand..It was all a big mistake. Besides how would they..know? Ike an embarrassed expression on his face. ( stunned ) Ohh no! You told them?! IKE Well I-I was proud of what you did... 50 Jerry runs his hands through his hair in disbelief. JERRY Ohhh my God!! Ike pleads with Jerry outside the conference room door. IKE Before you walk through that door consider what's at stake. ( beat ) I have an idea..a plan. ( beat ) Wait till after the merger is finalized. Then get a quiet divorce from Yoshe. Jerry pondering, scratching his head with a doubting look in his eyes. JERRY Well I-I...don't know? Ike with a more urgent pleading expression. IKE The merger should only take a few months. ( beat ) In the meantime..Think of Yoshe as your servant..a woman willing to please you in every way. Ike pats Jerry on the shoulder. ( cont'd ) Jerry. You'll be one of the few westerns able to enjoy the sat- isfaction only a geisha wife can give to her husband. JERRY I was married. Just got a . divorce..No..I'm just going lie my cards on the table and tell them the truth. Ike a disappointed look on his face shrugs his shoulders, nodding his head with a solemn expression. He opens the door to the conference room for Jerry, the two then enter. INT. CONFERENCE ROOM We see a long conference table. Seated at the table a half ( cont'd ) 51 dozen distinguished looking JAPANESE EXECUTIVES dressed in expensive suits. They glance at Jerry with stern stone like expressions. Directly behind them we see two flags one American one Japanese. Ike steps forward makes the formal introduction. IKE Gentlemen. The Madison Avenue advertising genius...Mr. Jerry Conners! Polite applause from the stone-faced Japanese executives. Then suddenly they all leap to their feet with elated looks in their eyes. Slapping Jerry on the back, in jubilation. JAPANESE EXECUTIVE # 1 Congratulations Jerry,on your marriage to geisha girl! INT. STAKEOUT VAN Dave CLAPS his hand together. DAVE I GOT THE SOUND!! I'M IN!! Mike and Johnny pat Dave on the back.

MIKE My God. They may be forming a international syndicate! DAVE Jerry..ah Vincent then whispers to Ike. I Think I'll go with yo- ur plan. JOHNNY What do think that means Mike? Mike scratches his chin, ponders deeply. MIKE I don't know..Maybe a possi- ble double cross...after they merge. Dave fumbles with knobs. DAVE DAMN! Ohhh no! I just lost it. I got static coming through. Mike anxiously urging Dave. MIKE Try to get it back. We gotta know what their going to do! BACK TO JERRY Jerry standing before the Executives as they sit around the conference table waiting for Jerry to begin his present-ation. Jerry nonchalantly opens his chip bag and begins munching. He paces back and forth before the graphic charts of the Tokyo based Pharmaceutical company. JERRY I hope you don't mind, didn't ( cont'd ) 53 JERRY ( cont'd ) have time for breakfast. The Japanese executives give Jerry courteous bows. INT. STAKEOUT VAN Dave successful at regaining contact with Jerry's receiver. DAVE Ahha..I'm back in!

Turn the sound down, We gotta know what's going on in there. Dave reluctantly puts his headset back on. Mike sitting close behind him, inquires anxiously. ( cont'd ) What do you hear? What's going on? DAVE Sounds like someone's walking on broken glass or something. MIKE ( confused expression ) What? Broken glass? BACK TO JERRY We backaway from a close up of Jerry as he crunches down upon a potato chip. JERRY ( confident arrogance ) Gentlemen. CRUNCH CRUNCH..My plan is to eliminate the competition. 54 Jerry points to a graphic display showing his company's rising sales. Loud applause from the Japanese executives. INT. STAKEOUT VAN Dave leaps back in shock. DAVE Damn! MIKE What? What is it? DAVE Vincent's talking about el- iminating the competition. BACK TO JERRY Jerry opens his briefcase, then passes out his advertising campaign brochures to the elated Japanese executives. JERRY If they try and counter my plan. ( brash arrogance ) Well..then it'll be all out war. And when the smoke clears we'll be the dominant force in the international drug market. The Japanese executives cheer and applaud Jerry's strategy. INT. STAKEOUT VAN Dave a stunned expression on his face. DAVE Oh..my God! He's calling for an all out war! ( beat ) Claims they'll be the dominant force in the international drug market when the smoke clears. Mike sits back a look of shock on his face. MIKE This is bigger than I ever tho- ught possible. Vincent give any date? Place? Dave shakes his head with disappointment. 55 DAVE No..they're breaking up the meeting. That's it. Mike a look of concern. MIKE We gotta inform Sandy. She might be able to get more de- tails...head this thing off. JOHNNY What if we can't? MIKE Then there is going to be a lot of trouble. And Sandy might be caught right in the middle of it. CLOSE ON MIKE'S CONCERNED FACE BACK TO JERRY The meeting wrapped up. Jerry and Ike leave the conference room. Ike pats Jerry on the back in a elated mood. IKE You did fantastic Jerry. ( beat ) And here's a little wedding present for you. Ike drops a key into Jerry's hand. JERRY ( baffled ) Ah..thanks what's the key for? IKE It's to my isolated cottage. Not far from here. I use it when I'm in town on business. ( beat ) I'm going away for a few weeks. I want you and your lovely wife Yoshe to use it, while I'm away. JERRY ( pleasantly surprised ) Ah thanks Ike. Ike jots down the cottage address on piece of paper, then hands it to Jerry. 56 IKE Here's the address. You'll find it peaceful and serene. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city. ( beat ) Think of it as your little hideout. ( winks ) Where you and Yoshe can enjoy the two weeks in seclusion and luxury. JERRY Ahh thanks. IKE And don't worry. Yoshe will treat you like a king. Jerry a little more relieved, as he ponders about his situation. JERRY Yeah. I guess it would be a different experience. ( deep thought ) So this Yoshe. She'll do anything I say? IKE More obedient than man's best friend. Jerry's doubtful expression now turns into a big beaming smile the more he thinks about what Ike has just said. JERRY Yeah. I'm beginning to think I might like this arrangement. Ike pats Jerry on the back, then shakes his hand. IKE ( hurriedly ) Well I gotta plane to catch to L.A. Maybe when I get back perhaps we can have dinner. ( beat ) In the meantime Yoshe will care for you, and entertain you. You got it made. JERRY ( ponders more positive ) Hmmm....yeah...thanks Ike.

We're going to get you through this. SATO ( OS ) Ok..first tell her to take the Wok. MIKE ( to Sandy ) Ok Sandy, take the Wok. INT. IKE'S KITCHEN Sandy looks at all the strange kitchen utensils with a panicked expression. SANDY What the hell is the wok? INT.

BACK TO SANDY SANDY Ohh, the funny looking frying pan. Sandy the phone under her chin. Not too agile in the kitchen nearly drops the pots and pans onto the floor. MONTAGE a) we see Sandy slicing up pieces of beef. b) stirring the pieces of beef and vegetables in the wok. Some time later. The dinner completed, the kitchen a mess.

JERRY ( OS ) Well..something smells interes- ting! Sandy quickly puts away her phone. SANDY ( to Mike ) Gotta go he's coming. Jerry wearing only his athletic t-shirt and slacks. He nonchalantly strolls over to the wok pan, then he sniffs at the cuisine. Sandy, peeking over at him wondering if she did alright her first time out as a chef. JERRY Let's have a taste test. Jerry takes a cooking utensils, he then samples Sandy's cuisine. Sandy watching with a anxious expression. SANDY Ahhh you like husband? Jerry waves the utensil up and down, while pondering. JERRY You know. This tastes just like the Tokyo Garden's coo- king. SANDY ( relieved ) Thank you husband. She bows graciously to Jerry. JERRY ( sarcastic tone ) Their food's ok..But I've had better.

" Sandy tossing bowls and utensils into the sink, she splatter's a bottle dish liquid all over the sink in a furious tirade. MIKE ( OS ) Alright calm down Sandy. SANDY ( rambling on ) I slave a freaking hour pre- paring his dinner...Then! That ungrateful son of bitch says... ( sarcastic mimic ) " I've had better!!

We don't want to break anything do we? SANDY ( to herself fuming mad ) I'd like to break something. I'd like to break his son of a bitching neck! I'd like to shove the little runt's face right into that wok!. Of all the nerve! MIke, doing his best to keep Sandy's temper under control. 70 MIKE ( OS ) Calm down Sandy..you don't want to do something you'll regret later. ( beat ) Try and keep that temper under control..ok. SANDY ( now more composed ) Yeah. Sorry..just lost my head. Sandy puts away the phone. Then she looks at the sink full of dishes. She has a thought. She opens the kitchen cabinet door, pulls out a large plastic trash bag. Then she dumps all the pots, bowls and pans into the large bag. Then opens the trash container and dumps the bag into it. She takes a hand full of paper towels wipes the table and counter, dumps the towels into the trash container. Then claps her hands . Jerry enters the kitchen, carrying the wok and the bowl. He places them on the counter top. Then whispers into Sandy's ear. JERRY ( sensual tone ) Clean these up...then join me in the bedroom upstairs.

( mumbles to herself ) I don't know how much more I can take from him. INT. BEDROOM We see Jerry dressed only in his briefs, lying ontop of the bed. The lighting low. A mischievous gleam in Jerry's eyes. He pats the space next to him on the bed. JERRY Come right over here Yoshe. Take that kimono off. You got me in the mood for hot steamy passion. Sandy steps forward. Places her hand over her head. SANDY Ohh husband..Yoshe have terrible headache. Ahh tomorrow Yoshe be much better. Jerry a perverted look in his eyes, rises his eyebrows.

SANDY ( fake yawn ) Goodnight husband. Jerry still feeling aroused and horny, paces back and forth, looking at his beautiful geisha wife. His passion rising. JERRY ( ponders ) Hard wood floor eh? Be kinda kinky. Let's give it a try. Jerry gets on top of Sandy, releasing his animalistic urges for sexual gratification onto the surprised Sandy. She has her hands full just trying control him. But her strength and marital arts skill help save her virginity for the night. With one quick twist, she flips Jerry onto his back, like a wrestler freeing himself from being pinned to the mat. 73 JERRY Owwwww! Hey what are you doing?! SANDY It better if Yoshe on top. Relieve tension of headache. Yoshe ontop of the stunned Jerry. Pinning him to the floor. JERRY What about my aching back?!! OOOOWWW! Get off of me damn it! We'll wait until tomorrow. Sandy happily gets off of Jerry, then helps him, over to his bed, as he holds his aching back. She bows then returns to the safety of her floor sleeping quarters. SANDY Thank you for understanding husband. ( beat ) Good night. Jerry lying in bed, wincing in pain. JERRY Ohhhhhh....Good night. INT. SAM VINCENT'S PLUSH MANSION - TOKYO JAPAN CLOSE ON JERRY'S DOUBLE IN LIFE - SAM VINCENT We back away as Vincent is having a violent tantrum in front of his YAKUZA BODYGUARDS. VINCENT SSSOOOOO! THERE'S A SON OF A BITCH...IMPERSONATING ME?!! BODYGUARD # 1 Yes sir..Mister Vincent. We have reports he's forming some kind of syndicate. Vincent in a rage tosses a liquor bottle at a wall, smashing it to pieces. The big Bodyguards back away from the diminu-tive, fiery Vincent. BODYGUARD # 2 ( cautiously ) It might be a trick by Ito. Sinister side lighting on Vincent's face. 74 He makes a tight fist waving it in raging anger. VINCENT If Ito wants a war. Then he's going to get one!! Vincent takes a large knife then thrusts it into a table top. ( cont'd ) And the impersonator and his geisha...they're dead meat!! Vincent then spins around yelling to his Bodyguards. ( cont'd ) Gather the men! Ready the plane..We're going to San Francisco...NOW!! EXT. IKE'S COTTAGE - LATE EVENING We see several late model cars parked in front of Ike's cottage. INT. STAKEOUT VAN Dave on the headset, listening intently. Mike and Johnny sit close behind him, awaiting word on the supposedly big mobster meeting taking place inside of Ike's cottage. MIKE What's going on Dave? DAVE Not much. Sounds more like a col- lege reunion, more than a gangland meeting. MIKE Hopefully Sandy can loosen them up...so they'll reveal some- thing. DAVE From how it sounds here. She's got her hands full. ( beat ) Vincent's got her on display. She's taking a lot of abuse. JOHNNY Hope she doesn't blow her temper. Mike a concerned expression on his face. 75 MIKE And I hope she doesn't blow her cover. INT. IKE'S COTTAGE We see the raucous party in progress. Some of Jerry's old friends and buddies have had a little bit too much to drink. They're intrigued by Jerry's subservient geisha wife. Jerry's pal TED watching Sandy entertaining Jerry's stag party, with great interest, and envy. Sandy bows to two GUESTS, then chats with two more, as she passes around the refreshment tray to the guests. TED ( to Jerry ) I must say, I like your new ge- isha bride. ( beat ) I especially like the way she bows. Think she can teach my wife to bow like that? Another close pal of Jerry's, NICK, pats Ted on the back. NICK Fat chance Ted. That'll be the day when your wife bows to you. AL, another close friend, joins in ribbing their pal Ted. AL Yeah keep dreaming pal. Your wife's a liberated woman. A regular Gloria Steinem clone. Ted solemnly nods his head in acknowledgement. Ted pats Jerry on the back. Jerry's pal TED Gotta congratulate you Jerry. You done yourself proud. Your one lu- ky S.O.B. AL Yeah ain't no way in the world our wives would even remotely act like a geisha. The four watch Sandy entertaining Jerry's drunken bunch of buddies. The four a tinge of jealousy. NICK Look at her. Beautiful, and ( cont'd ) 76 NICK ( cont'd ) willing to please. Jerry feeling a rush of egotism over take him. JERRY That's nothing fellas. Watch this little demonstration. Jerry removes a small silver bell from his pocket. TED What's the little bell for Jerry? Jerry, a smirking, arrogant grin on his face. JERRY To let her know..who the master of the house is. ( beat ) I taught her to come running, and to do my bidding whenever she hears the bell ring. Jerry holds the bell up high. ( cont'd ) Watch this. Jerry rings the bell. Sandy quickly shuffles over to her husband, she bows to him politely. YOSHE Yes husband. What do you wish? Jerry's friends are in awe, very impressed. NICK Wow! Jerry buddy, you've really got her trained. TED Where can I trade my wife in for one, Ha ha ha! His buddies laughing heartily. While Sandy tries to keep her building temper from exploding. Jerry waves to his buddies to calm their excitement. JERRY Ok..How about some tea? Served by my lovely geisha wife. Jerry's friends all cheer in unison. NOTE PAGES PAGES 77 -86 NOT ON THIS COMPUTER DISK WILL LOACATE AND SEND TO YOU. RON 87 JERRY I'm not Vincent! I'm Jerry Conners ..advertising executive. Sandy pushes Jerry through the men's room door, and out into the hallway of the lounge area. SANDY Shut up! Move it!! Jerry, terrified, confused. Tries making a run for it. Sandy grabs him by the hair. Then drags him to the back entrance of the ryotei. Jerry screams out for mercy. JERRY OWWWWW! Stop! Is this anyway to treat your loving husband? ....Yiiiee!! The ryotei's MAMA SAN confronts Sandy. Scolding her, waving her finger in Sandy's face. MAMA SAN Geisha! Stop this! That is no way to treat gentleman. Jerry on his hands and knees. He peeks up to the Mama San. JERRY ( meekly ) Help....help me! Yoshe hurriedly pushes the Mama San to one side. SANDY SHUT UP! OUT OF THE WAY!! Sandy then glances at the stunned faces of the GUESTS and hostess GEISHAS inside the ryotei. ( angered shout ) WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU ALL LOOKING AT?!! DON'T BUG ME....I'VE HAD A BAD DAY!! The Guests and Geishas quickly look the other way. ( cont'd ) Alright Vincent!! Move it!! Sandy pushes Jerry forward, he falls down. She places a foot on his rear end, then gives him a swift kick. ( cont'd ) ( cont'd ) 88 SANDY ( cont'd ) Get up! Suddenly we see Ito Thug # 2, enter the ryotei. He quickly draws out his gun. He then takes dead aim at Jerry. Sandy dives on top of Jerry knocking him to the floor. Just as Thug # 2's bullets hit the wall, a few feet from the two. The Guests and Geishas inside the ryotei, dive behind their tables, as they scream out in terror. GUESTS & GEISHAS EKKK!! HELP!! EIIIYYAA!! Sandy whips out her automatic pistol, then returns fire. INT. STAKEOUT VAN JOHNNY She should have been here by now. MIKE ( concerned ) Give her a few more minutes. INT. RYOTEI The action freezes. Thug # 2's gun jams. He puts his hands up. Sandy sneaks by him, pulling Jerry by his necktie. SANDY Let's go Vincent! JERRY ( sobbing ) Why is everybody trying to kill me? SANDY I guess your not too popular. Suddenly Thug # 2 grabs a samurai sword from the wall display. He swings the sword at Sandy, knocking the gun from her hands. Sandy backs away from the relentless pursuit of the sword wielding Thug # 2. Meanwhile Jerry on his hands and knees tries to make good his escape. A WAITER tosses another samurai sword to Sandy. She and Thug # 2 circle one another, waiting for the opportune moment to strike. The terrified PATRONS peeking over their tables at the two combatants ready for battle. Thug # 2 lets out a ( cont'd ) 89 shrieking scream as he takes a swinging lunge at Sandy. THUG # 2 HEEEEEEYYYYAAAAA!!! CLANG CLANG CLANG the sound of the clashing samurai swords reverberates off the walls. Sandy then knocks the sword from Thug # 2's hands. He stands before Sandy at the mercy of her blade, thinking to himself he's about to be sliced and diced. He grimaces, awaiting certain death. Sandy with a smirking grin on her face, swings the sword, cutting Thug # 2's belt off, dropping his pants to the floor. She then spins, with a perfectly placed kung fu kick to his jaw, sending him crashing against the wall. We see Jerry inching his way, on hands and knees towards the front door. Sandy drops the sword to the floor, then quickly retrieves Jerry, grabbing him by the back of the collar. Then she hauls and drags him back towards the rear exit. SANDY Oh no you don't. This way. Sandy pushes Jerry ahead of her, through the back door exit and out into the hallway, leading to the rear parking lot. INT. HALLWAY - REAR EXIT Suddenly we see Razor and the two other THUGS, blocking the back door, their guns trained on Sandy and Jerry. RAZOR ( calm sinister tone ) Why Mr. Vincent....Are you lea- ving? I think we have some unf- inished business. JERRY ( sobbing, pleading ) Please don't kill me! I'm Not this Vincent guy. I'm Jerry Conners..advertising executive. RAZOR Tsk tsk...come come now Vincent. I didn't think that in the end you'd lose your guts. Die like a man. ( beat ) Step away from him geisha or you'll die with him. ( stern tone ) 90 Sandy her weapon trained on the three. SANDY Fat chance razor! I'm taking him in. Now get the hell away from the door or I open fire. RAZOR Geisha. It's going to be a shame to have to fill that lovely bo- dy of yours full of holes. There are three guns pointed at you. Now Give us Vincent. SANDY Sure. I'll give you something! Sandy aims her pistol at the chain holding a chandelier, which hangs over the heads of the three at the door. She fires her last bullet, snapping the chain. The chandelier comes crashing down upon the three. Pinning the three to the floor. They struggle to get free. Sandy taking the opportunity. She pushes Jerry forward, the two quickly then dash out to the rear parking lot.. EXT - REAR PARKING LOT - RYOTEI - NIGHT We see the stakeout van parked a few yards away. Mike flings the Van's back door open. Sandy pushes the terrified confused Jerry ahead of her. SANDY ( cont'd ) If you want to keep on living Vincent. RUN...and don't look back! Sandy pushes Jerry face first into the van, she dives in right after him. Razor and his two Thugs come running through the back door. They aim their weapons at the van, Mike and Dave open fire at the three, their bullets shattering the glass of the rear door to the ryotei. Razor and his Thugs hit the dirt. Mike slams the van door closed. Razor opens fire with his automatic gun. His bullets shatte-ring the van's' back window and tail lights, as the van makes a tire squealing escape. INT. STAKEOUT VAN MIKE ( cont'd ) 91 MIKE ( cont'd ) GET US OUTTA OF HERE JOHNNY! The van makes swerving hair pin turns down side streets. ( then to Jerry ) Well, well we finally got you Sam Vincent..and I'm going to do all I can to see to it that you spend the rest of your crummy life behind bars. Mike siting over Jerry, his gun trained on the terrified ad executive. Jerry lying on his back, looks up at Mike with a terrified, puzzled, pleading expression. JERRY Please..you gotta believe me! I'm not Sam Vincent! I'm Jerry Conners, advertising executive. Sandy, undaunted by the gawking stares of the men in the van. Slips out of the kimono, in her bra and panties, she then slips into her jeans and tight sweat shirt. SANDY He's been crying that all night. DAVE Ahh..Ahem...Maybe he's going to try and plead insanity. Jerry takes his billfold out, he shows Mike his driver's license, his company ID photo. JERRY L-L-Look! My driver's license ...my company ID photo. It proves I-I'm Jerry Conners. Mike takes a quick, unimpressed glance at the billfold, then tosses it back into Jerry's lap. MIKE Any two bit hoodlum can get fake ID. ( sarcastically ) Where your going Vincent you'll have number instead of a name. And a one room cell for your living quarters. Jerry runs his hand through his hair, tying to make sense of ( cont'd ) 92 this nightmare that is happening to him. DAVE ( ponders ) Unless..hmm..Maybe he can cut a deal with the Feds? Jerry his eyes darting back and forth, hoping for a way out of this terrifying mess. JERRY Huh?...Deal? Mike a smirking grin, nods his head. MIKE Yeah..a deal Vincent. ( beat ) You turn in incriminating eviden- ce against every mobster you know. Then your a free man. SANDY One bad thing. Every mobster in the world will be looking for you...to skin your hide. DAVE We could...ahh..offer him the witness protection plan? Jerry completely confused looking back and forth to each police officer. MIKE Yeah...possible. SANDY Send him to some little remote town in New Mexico. MIKE Yeah..Vincent..get you a resp- ectable job....like washing dishes...mopping floors. JERRY ( almost in tears ) I don't want to go to New Mexico..I don't want wash dishes, mop floors. Johnny shouts out from the wheel of the van, as he comes to a sudden stop. 93 JOHNNY MIKE! Roadblock! Mike glances out through the front window. We see a dark truck blocking the road. MIKE ( shouts ) BACK UP JOHNNY!! Johnny quickly puts the van in reverse. But he is blocked in the rear by two limos, that pull up across the road. Mike and Dave ready their guns. Sandy puts in a fresh ammo clip into her automatic pistol. ( cont'd ) Damn it's an ambush!! ( beat ) Johnny! Call for back up! Johnny about to use the van's police radio. When the butt of a rifle comes crashing the van's front window. A gun pointed through the open window, then put to Johnny's head. A deep voice with a Japanese accent yells out. VOICE ( OS ) EVERYBODY OUT OF THE VAN! NOW! OR HE GETS HIS HEAD BLOWN OFF!! Mike opens the van door. We see a half dozen heavily armed YAKUZAS, dressed in dark suits, their guns pointed at the van door. YAKUZA # 1 shouts to Mike and the others. YAKUZA # 1 Toss your guns down! Hands over your heads! Mike leads his police officers out of the van one by one, their hands raised over their heads. The YAKUZA lining them up. Then Jerry emerges, he glances around with a terrified look in his eyes. Yakuza # 1 walks up to Jerry. He grabs him by the face, squeezing Jerry's cheeks, as he turns his face both ways. A surprised look on Yakuza # 1's face, as he inspects Jerry. We see a third black limo pull up. Three Yakuzas dressed in dark suits step out. Mike whispers to Dave and Sandy. MIKE ( puzzled ) What are Yakuzas doing here? 94 JERRY W-W-What are Yakuzas? SANDY ( whispers to Jerry ) Japanese mafia. Yakuza # 1 walks hurriedly to the rear of the third limo. The limo's widow opens. Yakuza # 1 points over to Jerry. YAKUZA # 1 We've got him sir. Yakuza # 1 opens the back door of the limo. A shadowy FIGURE steps out. The Figure walks towards Jerry. Only the click, click of his hard heel shoes breaks the silence of the night, Hidden by the shadows. Then as he nears Jerry, he steps underneath a street lamp revealing his face to us. We see mobster SAM VINCENT, a dead ringer for Jerry Conners. He wears an expensive pinstriped suit. A hat on his head, tilted to one side. We pan down the line of the stunned faces of the police officers, staring at Jerry, then at Vincent. MIKE ( to Jerry in shock ) Damn Vincent! You got a twin brother! VINCENT ( low menacing tone ) He's not Vincent. I am! MIKE ( to Jerry ) Then you really are...? JERRY Jerry Conners. Mike hits his forehead with the palm of his head in disgust. MIKE Ohhh nooo! We've been staking out the wrong guy! Vincent walks around Jerry, inspecting him thoroughly. He then takes Jerry's face into his hands and inspects his face closely. VINCENT ( cont'd ) 95 VINCENT ( cont'd ) So your the impostor that's been causing all the trouble? JERRY ( pleading tearful ) I'm sorry Mr. Vincent! I-I-I didn't do anything. Everyone thought I was you..People shooting at me all night long... ( rambles on ) VINCENT SHUT UP!! Jerry takes a gulp of air nervously standing at attention. Vincent whispers to Yakuza # 1 ( cont'd ) I don't think he looks that much like me. He's rather ugly. ( beat ) But..I guess he'll do. Vincent motions with a quick jerk of his head to Mike, Dave and Johnny. ( cont'd ) Those three in the truck. Then he looks at Sandy and Jerry. ( cont'd ) These two with me. The Yakuza push Mike and his partners towards their truck. Sandy and Jerry are escorted by gun point over to Vincent's limo. Yakuza # 2 pushes the butt end of his automatic rifle into the back of Mike. YAKUZA # 2 You heard Mr. Vincent move it..Into the truck! MIKE Hey! Easy with that thing! Where you taking us? The Yukuza unceremoniously push Mike and his two partners ( cont'd ) 96 towards their truck. SANDY What are you going to do Vincent? Yakuza # 1 opens the back door for the limo for Vincent. Vincent stops, ponders with a sinister gleam in his eyes. VINCENT ( sinister whisper ) You'll soon find out..Miss Chen.. Vincent looks over Sandy with a perverted stare. ( cont'd ) Or should I say..Officer Chen? Yakuza # 3 shouts out to Vincent. YAKUZA # 3 Mr. Vincent! What about the van? Vincent nonchalantly glances at the van, then turns to Yakuza # 1. VINCENT Dispose of it. Yakuza # 1 nods his head to Yakuza # 3. Yakuza # 3 takes a shoulder rocket launcher from the back of the truck. Then with a quick squeeze of it's trigger he shoots and makes a direct hit with the van. We see the van go up in a ball of fire and flames explosion. Mike and his partners look at the explosion in horrified shock. They are then shoved into the back of the truck. Vincent, Sandy, Jerry and Yakuza # 1 get into the limo. Then Vincent's caravan quickly drives away from the scene. INT. SECLUDED DIMLIT WAREHOUSE. We see a dingy makeshift office. Stacks of crates piled on top of each other in the room. Yakuza # 1 shoves Sandy into the room. Vincent sitting behind an old wooden desk. He gets up, then sits on the edge of the desk, facing Sandy. VINCENT You'll have to forgive my temporary office. It'll do, till I get my roots eastablis- hed here in the USA. SANDY ( with contempt ) ( cont'd ) 97 SANDY ( cont'd ) I say the dump..is perfect for a rat like you! VINCENT My..my. The fiery little geisha is quite the dragon lady. She has claws..she likes to scratch. Vincent paces back and forth, behind Sandy. ( cont'd ) I must say I admire your ...beauty, brains and real guts. Rare to find in a woman. SANDY Maybe you just haven't looked around. VINCENT Oh...but I have Miss Chen. ( beat ) You see I'm an equal opportunity employer.I have hired some...rat- her unloyal and incompetent people over the years. Vincent sits on the edge of the desk. ( cont'd ) I unfortunately had to dispose of them. Their ahem...corpses you can find....floating in the China sea. SANDY Then you should be charged with littering, along with murder, and drug smuggling. VINCENT ( his eyes ablaze ) Ho, I like this one. She has wit. She's full of fire. ( beat ) We shall make a great team my lovely one. SANDY ( shoots back ) No Thanks! I like the team I'm on! VINCENT ( cont'd ) 98 VINCENT I don't think you fully comp- rehend what I'm saying Miss Chen. Vincent walks behind Sandy, he leans over, then whispers into her ear. ( cont'd ) I want YOU on my team. ( beat ) And I always get what I want! SANDY Not this time! VINCENT ( nonchalantly ) Oh..I think I can persuade you to see things my way Miss Chen. SANDY ( defiant ) Not likely. Vincent now again sits on the edge of his desk, glaring at Sandy with a sinister, mischievous grin on his face. VINCENT I think so. You see. You don't do as I say Miss Chen. You don- 't cooperate with me. ( beat ) Then unfortunately, your three police friends will each get a bullet through their brain. ( beat ) And you Miss Chen, will be forced to watch their execution. One...by ....one. Vincent his arms folded, glares into Sandy's eyes. ( cont'd ) Now my lovely. What will it be? SANDY ( reluctantly ) I guess I don't have much of a choice do I? VINCENT Marvelous. You see how you came around to seeing things my way? ( beat ) ( cont'd ) 99 VINCENT ( cont'd ) I told you..I always get what I want. Yakuza # 2 shoves Jerry into the room at gun point. Jerry dressed in one of Vincent's suits. The two look identical. ( cont'd ) Well our impostor. Now that's more like it. Vincent straightens Jerry's tie. He ponders for a second. ( cont'd ) Hmm. I do believe he needs the finishing touch. Yakuza # 2 hands Vincent one of his hats. Vincent places the hat upon Jerry's head. Then tilts it to one side. Vincent steps back admiring his handy work. ( cont'd ) Why It's almost like looking into a mirror. I think it will work. SANDY ( suspicious ) What will work? What are you up to Vincent? VINCENT ( calmly ) Ah yes I do believe I should let you in on my little plan. Since the two of you are going to be a part of it. ( beat ) Mr. Ito contacted me. Seems he's nervous..wants to call a truce. ( beat ) We are both to meet at an abandoned pier. Pack no firearms, and bring only one unarmed bodyguard . Vincent his arms behind his back paces back and forth like a military general briefing his troops. ( nonchalantly ) Now, I don't fully trust Ito. ( to Jerry ) I'm going to meet him. But I'm not really going to meet him. Jerry trying to figure it out, a puzzled look on his face. 100 Vincent pats Jerry on his cheek gently. VINCENT ( sinister whisper ) You..are going in my place. Vincent straightens Jerry's tie, adjusting it once more. JERRY I-I-I am? VINCENT Yes. And If it's a trap, then you'll take the bullets for me. Then....I can finish off Ito. JERRY ( panicked ) You mean I might get killed?! VINCENT Oh...there's a very good chance you will my friend. Vincent adjusts the lapel of Jerry's suit once more with a sentimental look in the gangster's eyes. He then pats Jerry on his face once more. ( cont'd ) If so. I do hope they aim for your head. Good tailored suits are so hard to replace. Vincent motions to Yakuza # 2 with quick jerk of his head. ( cont'd ) Put him in the car! Yakuza # 2 escorts Jerry from the room at gunpoint. We hear Jerry pleading whining sobs, as he's dragged down the hallway. JERRY ( OS ) No..please I don't want to die! Sandy protests vehemently to Vincent, as he nonchalantly pours liquor from a bottle into a glass. SANDY ( boldly ) Wait a minute Vincent we had a deal. 101 VINCENT I don't make deals. ( to Yakuza # 1 ) Is everything ready? YAKUZA # 1 Yes Mr. Vincent. Yakuza # 1 trains his gun on Sandy, he motions her with the gun towards the exit. VINCENT Let's not keep Ito waiting, EXT. ABANDON SHIPPING DOCK - SAN FRANCISCO BAY - DAY Vincent and his Yakuza bodyguards wait inside their limo. Vincent sitting in the limo's backseat. He opens the back window, then shouts out to Jerry, as he and Sandy are about to begin their walk to the rendezvous point. ( sarcastically ) Oh..Mr. Conners! Try and Bring my suit back in one piece. Jerry gulps, a petrified expression on his face. Then Sandy and Jerry are seen walking side by side, to what could be their march towards death. Jerry whispers to Sandy, who is walking by his side. JERRY Officer Chen. I'm scared stiff. I know I'm going to blow it. SANDY You know what to say..just act it out. And hope for the best. As they near the rendezvous point, Jerry confesses to Sandy. JERRY Just want to say..I'm sorry Officer Chen for the way I treated you. I was a real chauvinistic jerk. Sandy flashes a rare smile. SANDY I'm sorry you got dragged into this. ( then abruptly ) Here we are. Remember..act tough. Ito and a muscle bound BODYGUARD appear from out of the ( cont'd ) 102 shadows. ITO Vincent...Been a long time. ( beat ) Why the lady escort? Jerry tries his best to sound tough, he does a bad imitation of Humphrey Bogart. Sandy flinches with embarrassment. JERRY What's it to you Ito?....Maybe she's my good luck charm. Ito snickers with a sinister grin. ITO Really? JERRY ( through gritted teeth ) Ahhh...Yeah..really! ITO Well...your luck just ran out Vincent! Four of Ito's THUGS appear from out of the shadows, each pointing a gun at Sandy and Jerry. SANDY It was a setup! Jerry loses it, he falls on his knees before Ito, pleading for mercy. JERRY No wait! Don't kill me! I'm not Vincent! I'm advertising execut- ive Jerry Conners. Ito pushes Jerry away with his hands, scorning him with a vengeance. ITO This is the way I always thought it would be Vincent. When the end was near for you...you'd beg like the dog your are. Ito pulls a gun from his suitcoat, points it directly at Jerry's head. Jerry trembling with terror in his eyes. Ito grabs Sandy by the waist, then holds her in front of ( cont'd ) 103 himself, he kisses her on the nape of her neck. ITO I want to thank you for bringing the lovely young girl. Consider her your going away present to me. JERRY ( trembling tone ) I'm....going away? ITO Yes...for a very long time. ( beat ) Goodbye..Bon Voyage...Vincent. Ito ready to pull the trigger. Jerry trembling his eyes closed. Sandy with lightning speed rams her elbow into Ito's gut. Then ducks underneath his arm, spinning to behind his back. She places an arm lock on Ito. She stands behind him, with his gun to his head. Then she shouts to his Thugs. SANDY DROP YOUR GUNS NOW! OR I DROP ITO! Ito disgustedly nods his head. His Thugs follow his orders, they drop their guns to the ground. ( shouts to Jerry ) Jerry! Kick their guns to the side! Jerry a relieved expression. He rises up to his feet. Then he gleefully kicks the guns to the side, away from the thugs. Jerry's chest stuck out with vindictive pride. ITO ( stunned ) You mean...He's not Sam Vincent?! SANDY He's Jerry Conners. Vincent setup YOU up Ito. ITO ( growing angrier ) Who are you? SANDY Officer Sandy Chen..DEA! ( beat ) You and your goons are all under arrest! 104 Ito face reddens with fury. Then he explodes with rage. ITO NOOOOOO!!! He judo flips Sandy over his shoulder. Before she can get to her feet. He karate chops the gun from her hand, then spin kicks her to the face. Sandy rises up from her knee, she spits the blood from her mouth. Her eyes like two fiery torches, like a tiger about to spring on her prey. Ito taunting her, motions with his hand to Sandy. ( cont'd ) You want a shot at Ito? Come on! Sandy leaps to her feet, she takes her challenging martial arts stance. Ito does likewise. A smirking grin on his face. ( cont'd ) Your no match for Ito, woman! ( sneering laugh ) Never send a girl..to do a man's job. SANDY Guess you never heard of equal opportunity? Sandy hammers Ito's face with three consecutive spinning kung fu kicks. The big man goes down to one knee. Ito wipes the blood from his mouth, spits it onto to the ground. Then charges Sandy with angered vengeance. Ito's thugs cheer him on. Shouting out in Japanese subtitles. THUGS Give it to her Mr. Ito! Jerry shouts out to Sandy. JERRY Let him have it Sandy!! Sandy is much too agile and quick for the big man. Her kung fu spinning Kicks and karate chops cut the big man down to size. She finishes him off with a spinning kick to his head. The big man collapses into heap, against a stack of empty oil drums. Battered, beaten, humiliated. Ito screams out to his bodyguard Thugs. ITO GET HER!!! KILL HER!!! 105 The four Thugs rush Sandy, one pulls a knife out, the other picks up a metal pipe. Jerry sees the odds stacked against Sandy. He picks up two by four wooden plank from the ground. He slams it over the head of one of the Thugs WHAM. The Thug knocked unconscious. Then Thug # 2 turns and attacks Jerry. Jerry waving the board with arrogant confidence. JERRY Ah ha..I got the board! Thug # 2 slams a karate chop into the board, smashing it in two. THUG # 2 HEEEEEYAAAA!! Jerry, in shock, stares at the board. JERRY Oh oh!..Now..I got half a board. Thug # 2 chasing Jerry as he runs around in circles. He grabs Jerry from behind, putting him in a choke hold. Jerry shouts out in a high choking tone. ( cont'd ) Stop!!!..AGGGHHHH!!!! Jerry bites down hard on Thug # 2's hand. Thug # 2, screams out in agony, as he releases his grip from Jerry's neck. Thug # 2 holding onto his hand THUG # 2 YIIIIEEEEEEE!! Jerry rubs his neck, takes deep breath of air. He glances over at Sandy as she finishes off the two other Thugs with spinning kung fu kicks. Jerry glances over at Thug # 2. on one knee, while holding onto his injured hand. JERRY If she can do it..so can I! Jerry kicks Thug # 2 in the face WHAM! like a Football place kicker, kicking a field goal. After the impact kick. Thug # 2 holds his hand over his face, screaming in pain. Jerry hops around on one foot, holding onto his kicking toe. He screams in harmony with Thug # 2 THUG # 2 YEEEEOOOOWWWW!!!! 106 JERRY YEEEEOOOOWWWW!!!! Sandy pats Jerry on the back. SANDY It takes practice Jerry. We hear loud clapping. We pan over to Vincent and three of his Yakuza, their guns pointed at Sandy and Jerry. VINCENT Excellent! SANDY We did what you wanted Vin- cent. Now honor your part of the bargain. VINCENT I'm not an honorable man Miss Chen. ( beat ) Unfortunately I have no further use for any of you. ( beat ) And when you no longer need som- ething...You dispose of it. Vincent's Yakuzas raise their guns, ready to shoot. SANDY ( furious ) Vincent! You Lying..cheating son of a bitching bastard!! VINCENT Flattery...will get you nowhere Officer Chen. Jerry showing sudden, unusual courage. JERRY Ahem...ah mind if a use my nose drops?..I hate to die wi- th a running nose. Vincent a smirking grin. Nods his head to Jerry. Jerry removes his bottle of nose drops from the suitcoat pocket. Sandy, suspicious of his sudden courage in the face of death. She glances at him, with a half puzzled look. 107 SLOW MOTION Jerry brings the nose drop bottle ( which is really a bottle of mace ) up to his nose, then suddenly to their surprise. He points it directly at Vincent and his Bodyguards. REALTIME Jerry squirts the bottle of mace liquid into the faces of Vincent and his Bodyguards. They immediately cover their faces with their hands, screaming in agony. VINCENT YIIEEEEEE!!! YAKUZA YIIIIEEEEE!!! Sandy quickly and easily disarms Vincent and his Bodyguards. As they fall to their knees. Sandy then glances over at Jerry proudly holding onto his bottle of nose drops. SANDY Mighty powerful nose drops you got there Jerry. What is it? JERRY A little something one of our lab technicians and I created. A powerful mace spray, disguised in a nose drop bottle. ( beat ) Always wanted to give it a try. Sandy pats Jerry on the back. SANDY ( grins ) Glad you did Jerry. We see Captain Bradley, a dozen armed SWAT TEAM COPS, along with Mike, Dave and Johnny. Quickly running to the pier area. They quickly handcuff Vincent, Ito along with their combined gangs. Captain Bradley looks at Sandy, then at the bruised face of Jerry with amazement. CAPTAIN BRADLEY ( stunned ) You two...did this!
