LATER:

INT. HOUSE - NIGHT

Mascara streams down Jackie's face. She picks OCD-like at her cuticles.

She watches Peleador score a goal onscreen.

Onscreen, Peleador runs circles on the field, arms triumphant.

ANDY ANNOUNCER
(onscreen)
Peleador Amoroso takes L.A. to Spain!

Jackie jumps up and down for joy.

Jackie's eyes flash wide. She stops jumping, seeing:

Onscreen, Peleador runs to the sidelines to hug Hank Honey!

Lights from outside the house flash across Jackie's face and her screen.

Jackie runs outside.

She sees a repossessor lift her car onto a towing-jack.

Jackie pounds on the car's hood as it rolls away.

JACKIE
Swish's estate isn't even settled yet!

Across the street, Arrogant Attorney and Nosy Neighbor stifle chuckles.

The car rolls away.

It rolls over Jackie's foot.

Jackie collapses in pain, holds her toes.

Bath-robed, Arrogant Attorney extends his hand to Jackie.

He lifts her up.

ARROGANT ATTORNEY
Here's a little something to help with moving expenses.

He presses a wad of cash into Jackie's hand.

Jackie smiles.

ARROGANT ATTORNEY
There's a lot more of that under my pillow.

Jackie hurls the money in Arrogant Attorney's face.

Jackie stomps back to the front door to see an eviction notice hanging on her door.

She grabs it off the door, stares at the big word: EVICTION.

Underneath that paper lies another notice that reads: GAS CUT OFF.

She slumps down in the doorway.

She sees Nosy Neighbor and Arrogant Attorney high-five across the street, spying on her, laughing at her, joking:

NOSY NEIGHBOR
There's a lot easier ways for a pretty chick to get fed -

ARROGANT ATTORNEY
- than rockin' jocks!

In tears, Jackie storms into the house.

Jackie shivers.

She loads firewood into the fireplace.

She fails, fails, fails, then starts it ablaze.

She sees the phone ringing.

She answers it.

HANK
Jackie, I wanna' congratulate you. I knew you could do it.

JACKIE
You, trying to steal my last surviving client!

HARRY HECKLER (O.S.)
(outside)
Swish-killing bit-

{ WHOOSH! } A rock flies through Jackie's window.

The rock hits Jackie in the head.

Jackie goes down.

HANK
(onscreen)
Jackie? Jackie? ...

Jackie lays on the floor conked out.

HANK
That's just like you to hang up on me, Jackie.

Hank hangs up in anger.
