Thank you for voting!

FADE IN:

EXT. RUNNERS' PATH. CENTRAL PARK - DAY

Two MEN are jogging together in Central Park on a freezing January morning.

AL
I should have my head examined for letting
you talk me into running this morning.

NICK
And break last year's resolution? You lost
how many pounds? Five? I lost at least ten.

And since I stopped smoking the year before,
my doctor says my lungs are clean as a whistle.

And when I started eating a low-fat diet the
year before that, my cholesterol is as low as
my low-rise underwear.

And since I promised to help around the
house, my wife is one happy camper,
especially in the bedroom.

Al rolls his eyes.

NICK
And how about the year we started our
business. I vowed I'd stop complaining
about your three-hour lunches, and
your endless long-distance calls, and
your so-called business write-offs...
more like expensive gifts to Liz,
Sandra, Connie, and God only knows
who else.

AL
Have you decided on this year's
resolution yet?

NICK
You know me. If I can't keep it, I won't
make it. Why? You have any ideas?

AL
Yeah. A vow of silence.

Their VOICES fade out...

NICK
You know I can't do that. How else can
I tell you what's on my mind.

AL
What's left of it.

...as they disappear out of view.

FADE TO BLACK

One of your best Petra! If one is lucky enough to have that kind of friendship in life-they are very lucky indeed!
