From the Revised Final Draft, October 7, 1983

Where's the logic in offering me a
ride home, you idiot! If I wanted
a ride home, would I be trying to
charter a space flight?!
(then)
How the hell do you know who I am?

CIVILIAN
Federation Security, sir.
It's a bad moment for the agent to have announced him-
self. A desperate Bones releases the Alien and rises
to his feet just as the Waitress arrives with his Alt-
air water on a tray. The Altair water spills on the
Alien.

83 SERIES OF CUTS

The Alien, hit by the water, leaps to his feet in rage.

The Waitress is knocked into a group of people.

More spilling of drinks.

A bystander, thinking the Alien hit the Waitress, hits
him.

A general scuffle begins.

Meanwhile, McCoy tries to race around the "Civilian's"
end of the confusion, but the agent (very big), grabs
him. Bones, in confusion and panic, suddenly turns,
wild-eyed, and attempts a Vulcan nerve pinch on his
tormentor. The nerve pinch has absolutely no effect,
and the agent stares at Bones for a long moment.
CIVILIAN
You're going to get a nice, long
rest, Doctor.
He ushers Bones out as the brouhaha continues in b.g.

CUT TO:

84 EXT GENESIS PLANET - AREA 3 - SNOWSCAPE
