T. Burke: Gordon?

G. Hayward: I went last weekend with my childhood friend, Luke.  It was meant to be a harmless affair.

D. Favors: Yo.

G. Hayward: The daytime was a mundane mixture of barbecuing with beautiful women and swimming in a lake saturated with alcohol and urine.

B. Rush: Hey man.

[Gordon turns his head]

G. Hayward: I like fire very much now, Trey.

T. Burke: Ok…

G. Hayward: Ever since that trip, I feel different – more alive.   I miss Luke.


G. Hayward: I need to go now.

[Gordan drops the bulb and it shatters.  Every player panics and exits the locker room as quickly as possible.]
