BUT IT SURELY CAN´T BE CATCHING?

(The manager of the hotel cannot talk about anything else. But this is partly because he is angry about it. It seems unimaginable to him that rats should be discovered in the lift of a respectable hotel.) 

INT. HOTEL OFFICE - DAY

DR. RIEUX:

(To console him)

“But everybody has the same thing.“

 

THE HOTELMANAGER:

„Exactly! Now we are like everybody."

 

(He was the one who mentioned about the first cases of that unusual infection that people are starting to worry about. One of his chambermaids has it.)

 

THE HOTELMANAGER:

(insists)

'"But it surely can't be catching?“

"HATS OFF, GENTLEMEN!“

EXT. WINDY STREET - NIGHT / CONTINUOUS  

Somewhere in the black sky above the street lights a dull whistle reminds of the invisible scourge endlessly stirring in the warm air.

GRAND:

„Luckily, luckily…“

 

DR. RIEUX:

„What do you mean?“.

 

GRAND:

„Luckily, I have my work.“

 

DR. RIEUX:

„Yes,'It does help.

(deciding not to listen to the whistling sound of wind) 

Are you satisfied with your work?“

 

GRAND:

„Well, I think I'm on the right track.“

 

DR. RIEUX:

„Will it take you much longer?“

 

GRAND seems to become excited and the warmth of the alcohol passed into his voice.

 

GRAND:

„I don't know. But that's not the question, doctor, that's not the question. No.“

 

In the darkness, DR. RIEUX guessed that he was waving his arms. He seemed to be getting ready to say something that came abruptly and in a rush.

 

GRAND:

„You see, what I want, doctor, is that on the day when the manuscript reaches the publisher, he should stand up after reading it and say to his colleagues:"Hats off, gentlemen!“

 

DR. RIEUX:

„Yes, It must be perfect.“

LET ME KNOW

RICHARD:

"I don't understand it. Two deaths, one in forty-eight hours, the other in three days. I left the second of these one morning giving every appearance of being on the mend.“

 

DR. RIEUX:

"Let me know if you have any other cases“.
