MARTIN: Passenger from England.

JENNY: Yeah, yeah I know. I mean I went there just last week, it’s awesome! (Pause). Mm mm.

(Enter MARTIN SL. Walk slowly to passport desk struggling to carry a suitcase and briefcase in one hand, tickets in the other. JENNY looks up and indicates that she won’t be a moment. MARTIN taps his fingers on the desk).

MARTIN: Excuse me, Miss?

(JENNY indicates to the phone. MARTIN leans over and ends the call.)
