SCENE 6 - Immediately afterwards - The Zero Club

Ned, Pete & the bomb are alone in the Zero Club. Slowly, Molly turns and walks to the huge bomb on the cabaret stage and steps inside it. Ned and Pete watch, as if in a trance, and only seem to wake up when she disappears. Then then both rush up to the bomb.

"Molly is my secretary! She can't leave without two weeks written notice. Bomb or no bomb, she's in the office Monday morning at 8 AM sharp."

"This bomb's gonna be in a pressurized luggage compartment of a 747 Sunday night, buddy," Pete says, shoving Ned.
