FADE IN:
INT. GUYS APARTMENT. DAY

Apartment is relatively tidy. We see Joel sat on the sofa flicking through the T.V channels looking very bored and giving out the odd sigh. He gets up to turn off the T.V then walks over to the kitchen counter where his wallet lays. He checks how much money is in there when a picture of his ex-wife Kate fall out. He picks it up and smiles but soon changes into a scowl.

Joel: Bitch!

Joel rips up the picture and throws it in the bin, then walks over to the phone and begins to dial a number.
