One: Outside the Museum of Natural History, we hear
a man talking. Prue and Roger walk towards an exhibit.
been a change in plan.
of plans regarding the Beals exhibition?
The extra money you helped raise through private donations
has sparked significant corporate interest. The Beals
artifacts will become part of our permanent collection.
That's why the board wants someone a little more qualified
to handle the collection from now on. You look surprised.
I don't know why. I'm furious. Not
only have I been on this project since its inception,
but I'm the curator who secured the entire
exhibition. (Realizing something) You're the person
"a little more qualified" aren't you?
(Fiddling with his pen) I couldn't have said no to the
entire board of directors, could I?
But I know you'll be happy for me, after all, what's
good for me is definitely good for you. Right, Miss
Halliwell?" Since when did we stop being on a first
name basis? When we stopped sleeping together or when
I returned your engagement ring, Roger?
I didn't realize the two were mutually exclusive. (Smug)
Although, I certainly enjoyed one more than the other!
Prue storms off, Roger follows.
Uh Prue, wait. I feel like I should say something if only
to avoid a lawsuit.
Disgusted she flashes him a dirty look. Rogers pen starts
to leak in his shirt pocket. He takes it out and looks
at it, and it explodes in his face.
Two: Roger's office. He has a new shirt on, and is tying
his tie, while talking on the phone. Prue walks into
his office and hears his conversation, and is even more
disgusted with him.
It was my idea to spark corporate interest from private
donations. Besides, not only have I been with this project
since its inception, but we both know who
really secured the entire
exhibit... (noticing her) Prue.
PRUE: I quit!
(Talking on the phone) I'm going to have to call you back.
(Talking to Prue) Think about this Prue.
Job. Lousy pay. Lousy boss. What's to think about.
future, because believe me if you walk out with no notice
you can kiss any references.
threaten me Roger.
(Realizes she means it) You know me had to try. (Trying
kiss up to her) You're hurt, you're angry, your pride is
wounded. I understand all that. That's why you can't see
that I'm doing you a favor.
ROGER: I had
to take the exhibit away from you. If I hadn't the board
would have come in and put a total stranger in my place.
Think about it Prue,
I'm here for you, not some stranger. You should be thanking
me not leaving me.
I'm not worried, I'm certain your intellect will make quick
work of the 75 computer disks and the thousands of pages
of research I left in my office.
You're going to regret this.
Oh I don't think so. I thought the best think was me breaking
up with you was the best thing I've ever done, but this
definitely tops that. Good-bye Roger.
I HOPE THERE ARE NO OFFICE SUPPLIES IN YOUR PURSE.
the office, disgusted Prue gestures with her hands. At
that moment, Roger's tie tightens around his neck chocking
him. He stumbles to his desk, and flops in his chair.
He then tries to open a drawer and fumbles for a pair
of scissors. Frantically he cuts his tie, and as he cuts
he flips backwards in his chair.
What the hell was that?!
Later Prue returns home, and is told that Roger called,
he left a message for her on her answering machine. He
is frantic, and is trying to get her to change her mind.
Prue. it's Roger. I've decided to let
you come back to work. Seriously, let's talk.
