Jason walks around the police station towards Jade, 25, Mexican-American who has a crush on Travis
Oh! he makes a joke. Anyway better come in early the Chief wants to make a briefing. Oh and Jade says hi.
Jade smiles as she speaks to Jason who smiles ridiculously.

The Chief walks into the briefing room.
Some officers are seated while others are standing around the room.
Morning gentlemen! We’ve received Intel on the Tonkov brothers.
Chief notices Travis with his sunglasses on.
Son, take off your sunglasses, you in here looking like the blind Bartimaeus.
Travis smiles and takes off the glasses as the entire room laughs.
Moving on, we go after the Tonkov brothers tonight. Do not I repeat do not kill unless you find the need to, I hope you do not.
We need them alive on charges of assassination, smuggling etcetera etcetera.
