EXT. ELEVATOR - DAY
A woman, SUSAN 30s, is standing in the elevator.
We hear a DING.
The door opens and a man, DAVE 30s, steps in.
Dave does a double take at Susan.
Susan double-takes Dave and opens her mouth slightly.
Another woman, MARY 30s, steps in after Dave.
The door closes with all three looking forward.
After a beat Mary looks over at Dave

Dave looks quickly over at Susan then back forward.
Mary looks quizzically at Susan.
