Mr.Walson: “You’re not about to leave, are you? We’re just about to start another movie. Pretty good one. Besides a little more time won’t hurt.”
Lisonse: “Guess not”
Lisonse follows Mr.Walson into the TV room and finds Wright, Santi, and Rob already watching. Santi nods at him. The movie starts.

Lisonse is in a large white empty room. He moves around a bit, tapping the ground to feel its reaction. Lisonse exits the room to find a large white hallway with several white doors. He opens a few to find large rooms inside. There is no furniture. After running for as long as he can, Lisonse finds that there is no end to the hallway. He has to sit to catch his breath.
Act 1 Scene 8
Lisonse follows his basic routine but before leaving, he logs onto his computer and checks for routes not bordering dead zones. Lisonse looks at the spot where is work bike used to be and clutches at the sky in bizarrely serious pose.
Lisonse: “Why!” in a growling voice.
He then grabs his personal bike and heads out. Lisonse arrives at delivery hub, grabs his packages and leaves. Mr. Chesney says nothing. Lisonse rides around skittishly for the rest of the day, but delivers all the packages and goes home.

Movie: “You can’t touch me! I’m doing what’s best for the people!”
Lisonse sits and looks at the closest person. The screen flashes and a gunshot is heard.

Wright: “The television is 2.573 meters north.”
Lisonse: “I meant the movie.”
Wright: “Not sure. Haven’t been paying attention.”

Mr. Walson: “Glad to see you’re taking an interest in becoming a well rounded person.”
Lisonse: “I just said I’d check it out.”
Mr. Walson: “That’s alright. I just figured I’d come to give you a tour.”
Mr. Walson’s car arrives and the two get in.
Mr. Walson: “What do you do for a living, out of curiosity?”
Lisonse: “I’m a delivery boy.”
Mr. Walson: “How’s that going for you?”
Lisonse: “I’m not homeless, but I wish the pay was better.”
