INT. HARRISBURG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT -- NIGHT

Passengers arrive. Welles is with them, searching the few
PEOPLE waiting in the terminal hallway. Welles smiles...

Welles' wife, AMY, smiles when she sees him. She's plain
and pretty, holding one hand on a baby stroller beside her.
Welles comes to her, embracing her, appreciating her.

AMY
Welcome home.

WELLES
Do you know how much I missed you?

They kiss, but Amy pulls away, sniffs him.

AMY
What's this... have you been
smoking... ?

WELLES
Smoking? I'm not smoking.

AMY
Your clothing reeks of it.

WELLES
You know, Amy, I've been sitting
around in bars and everywhere
following this guy... I mean, is
this what I get first thing? Before
you even "hello," you accuse me... ?

AMY
I'm not accusing you...

WELLES
Well, I'm not smoking, okay?

AMY
Okay, I believe you.

WELLES
We've been all through that. I've
been on my best behavior.

Welles bends to the stroller, picks up his infant daughter,
CINDY, and hoists her in the air, overjoyed.

WELLES
Hello, pumpkin-head, did you miss
me? I sure missed you...

He kisses the happy child, holding her in one arm.

WELLES
Let's get my bags and get the hell
out of here.

Welles pulls Amy close and kisses her again, leads the way.
Amy follows, pushing the stroller.

AMY
How's the detective business?

WELLES
Business was fine. I'll tell you
what, you couldn't pay me enough to
live down there.

AMY
You better not be smoking, that's
all I can say.

WELLES
Honey, I'm not, please...

Amy takes Welles hand, smiling at him.



INT. WELLES' HOUSE, BABY'S ROOM -- NIGHT

Cindy's crying. Welles enters, goes to lean into the crib.

WELLES
What's all the trouble, Cinderella?
What are you crying about, huh?

He lifts and cradles Cindy, comforting her.


EXT. HARRISBURG CITYSCAPE -- ESTABLISHING --DAY

A small city of moderate architecture facing the Susquehanna.

INT. OFFICE -- DAY

An old money office with windows over the river. A well-to-
do POLITICIAN looks unhappily through PHOTOS on his desk.
Welles sits by the Pennsylvania state flag, watching.

PHOTOS show the Young Republican and Gaudy Woman in Miami:
leaving the Art Deco hotel, the Discotheque, a restaurant...

WELLES
Your son-in-law dealt with the dry
cleaning franchise during the day,
saw that woman every night.
(clears his throat)
The specifics are in the report, and
information about the woman. It's
unpleasant, I know. I apologize...

POLITICIAN
None too discreet, is he?

WELLES
No, sir, he is not.

POLITICIAN
He's an imbecile. I tried to warn
my daughter, but what can you do?

The politician shakes his head in disgust. Welles rises.

WELLES
The um... you'll find my invoice in
the envelope. If that's all...

POLITICIAN
Yes, Mister Welles, thank you.

WELLES
Certainly, Senator. If I can ever
be of further assistance.

Welles leaves, glances back, shuts the door.
