EXT. RURAL HIGHWAY – NIGHT
The utility van speeds along the lonely road.

INT. BACK OF UTILITY VAN – NIGHT
Connor and Susan are alone in the rear compartment, a metal partition separates them from the driver’s cab. They sit facing each other, the spilled bag of groceries between them.

SUSAN
There are people who care about me, they’re going to be looking for me. I– what is it you people want?

CONNOR
That’s kind of hard to explain.

SUSAN
Who is he, where did he come from?

CONNOR can’t think of anything but the truth. Why not:

CONNOR
He’s a robot. From the future.

SUSAN stares at him like he’s insane. He forges on:

CONNOR (cont’d)
Living tissue. Over a metal skeleton. Sent back in time to, to…

SUSAN
Go to hell.

Connor sighs, starting to regret his decision to get in back with her. He picks a small package out of the scattered contents of the bag and holds it out to her.

CONNOR
Jerky?

SUSAN
I’m a vegetarian.

CONNOR tries to talk as sincerely as possible.
