TIMOTEO drives to Madrid. Goes to the Hotel Florida. Orders a beer. Rick’s at table going over the books.

TIMOTEO

I see you made it home.

RICK

Nice glasses.

TIMOTEO

Go fuck yourself.

RICK

That graveyard’s a little dusty these days. I work up a thirst every time I go there, too. That one’s on me, then feel free to leave here in a hurry.

TIMOTEO

I spoke to one of ZUMAYA’s friends. She told me what you did for her.

RICK

Ok.  Good.  Now it’s your turn to leave my house.

TIMOTEO

Rick, you know the work I do.  I know Zumaya told you.   I am not here for your piss-water beer and your tourist-visa Hotel Florida drunkards.

RICK

Oh, I don’t claim that bastard Hemingway.

TIMOTEO

My reason is this:  La Causa has soldiers and no captains.

RICK

Sounds like a real problem. Good luck with that.

TIMOTEO

Rick, I’ll be leaving tomorrow morning, 6am, from that cafe where ZUMAYA got her morning coffee.

RICK

Your La Causa is not my causa.

TIMOTEO

RICK, from what ZUMAYA told me, you, and now I, have lost everything.  Is this correct?

Should

‘What do I have left?’ 

become

‘What do I have left . . . to offer?’

say something nice ... or not
