Jack steps towards her and starts caressing her hair.

And it's you.
JACK: (Nodding; softly) Yeah!
Oh, oh my gosh....

she throws her arms around him.
(Cont.) ....I thought you were dead. (In tears) Thank God! I thought....
I thought.... I'd given up I thought I'd lost you for good, Jack!

lets go. Jack keeps his hand on her shoulder.
have you been? Where've you been?! W.... we thought
tha.... that you were--
JACK: (Desperately) I can't tell you right now! W....
I'm sorry, I'll explain later, we need to get inside right now, I need
to call the police! Y.... (pointing) you were inside, there was a....
a woman inside pretending to be you--
JENNIFER: Yes the woman that I saw. The one tha....

But I'm going to wake up and find out! Come on! Come on....
takes off. They run inside and he looks the door.
(Gesturing) All right, (walking to her) I'll call the police. Make sure
all the rest of the doors are locked!
JENNIFER: Okay! (Sounding worried) Well, I'll check

breaths heavily as he walks to the phone. Suddenly Jennifer's reflection
is seen in the mirror on the wall, as he is punching numbers on the
phone. Obviously Jennifer did not go and do what she said she was
going do. Jack is continuing to phone when Jennifer calls to him.
Hang up the phone, Jack!
stops cold. He turns, realizing he has been fooled again. The fake
Jennifer's reflection can be seen in he mirror. Jack slowly turns
to her, she is holding a gun aimed at his head. Jack exhales, and
puts down the phone, cautiously; then exhales again. Jack slowly
walks towards her.
You! (Stopping) You're the imposter.
fake Jennifer laughs, as she continues to aim the gun at his head.
What tipped you off?
JACK: Who are you? What do you want?
The credits list fake Jennifer as Madison. She continues to
speak like Jennifer.
I'm just here to take care of a little business, Jack. Your little wifey

to his sides, so as not to get Madison to shoot. With fear for her
safety, Jack calls out to Jennifer.

Meanwhile outside, the real Jennifer is walking by the walkway. Jack's
voice can be heard.
stops, and looks around, trying to figure out from what direction
the voice is coming from, and if she heard correctly. Jennifer does
a double take.
Jack?! Hah.... (a nervous laughs) Oh God, (she shakes her head, smiling)
it can't be. Hah.
looks back towards the house.
Two: Back at the house the fake Jennifer, Madison, is pointing a gun
at Jack who has been trying to call out to the real Jennifer. Jack
shouts out to Jennifer, again, though not that loudly.
MADISON: (Looking around) Shout up! Shout up or I'll
blow your head off!
looks around, worried about Jennifer.
(Cont.) If you try running for that door, that'll be a really big mistake,

out what to do next. Jack swallows.
think that you're the one making the mistake! Because
if my wife is out there, she's gonna know we're inside!
You know what, if I were you, I would be praying that your
wife didn't hear you and went on her way! Because trust
me, the last thing that last thing that either of us wants right now is
your wife walking through that front door, do you understand
outside the real Jennifer is looking around trying to figure out what
is going on. She no longer hears anything, she says that she could swear
that she heard someone call her name, and that it sounded just like
Jack's voice. She runs her hand through her hair in frustration, "I'm
losing it' she says to herself. "I'm hearing things, I'm seeing
things, and there's no one *even* home!" She says she cannot worry
about it, she needs to get to Maggie's.
Back inside, Madison is still holding the gun to Jack's head.
JACK: Right! So, let's just leave her out of this. And
(his voice catching) get down to why you're here. (Exhaling an inhaling
several times) I assume you work for Tony di Mera.
MADISON: I work for a lot of people. This
is just another gig, Jack.
flashes a smile, Jack continues to stand his ground, trying to figure
out what to do next.
But-uh, your face, your hair, your body, it's.... it's just like....
(exhaling) haa, how do they do it? I'.... (swallowing hard) Your clothes
they're the same as Jennifer's, how did you know--
MADISON: (Interrupting) Don't you know that Count di
Mera knows all!
MADISON: And now, that our little surprise is out,
I won't be needing this.
touches her faces. Jack watches, frowning. She rips off the mask that
she was wearing, revealing her true appearance. She throws the latex
mask to Jack, and he catches it. She takes off the dentures she was
wearing, and smugly grins. She flips her hair. She no longer sounds
There, that's much better! Don't y'ah think?

more gum) In case you haven't noticed, (waves the gun) I (smiling) have

But you wouldn't dare pull that trigger, th....

saying that she did not remember turning on the living room light.
She walks back towards the door.

Jack is terrified not knowing what to do.
Back outside, Jennifer has found the right key. She stops, saying
that she probably just left the light on for Abigail. She sighs and

From inside Jack sees her walking away, relieved.

talks through her head set.
