Batman and Harold

INT. POLICE STATION FOYER – DAY

A man (HAROLD, 50’s) waits at the counter of a police station holding a few pieces of paper in his hand. Another man (thin, blonde, 30’s) walks up to the counter next to Harold and also begins to wait. Harold catches the other guys eye and nods to him.

A police woman, 30’s, harsh looking, in uniform, exits from behind a locked door.

POLICE WOMAN
Who was next?

HAROLD
Hi, how are you going? I was just hoping to get a this copy of my drivers license certified.

Harold hands the police woman the piece of paper with his photocopy on it.

POLICE WOMAN
I need to see your drivers license.

HAROLD
Right, of course.

Harold takes his wallet from his pocket and pulls his drivers license out and hands it to her. She looks at it and then him intently.

HAROLD (CONT’D)
That’s a couple of years old now, packed on a few since then.

She continues to look at Harold. She moves the drivers license closer to her eye and rotates it back and forth looking for the hologram. Harold rolls his eyes.

POLICE WOMAN
Could you please tell me your date of birth sir.

HAROLD
Are you joking?

She points to her police badge.

POLICE WOMAN
Does this badge make it seem like I’m joking.

HAROLD
Fine, it’s the twentieth of May 1959.

POLICE WOMAN
And have you had a haircut since this photo was taken?

HAROLD
Have I had a haircut within the last three years?

POLICE WOMAN
Just answer the question sir.

HAROLD
Yes, I have had a hair cut within the last three years.

POLICE WOMAN
Yes I thought so, I’m training to be a detective.

HAROLD
That’s wonderful.

POLICE WOMAN

Do you have any other forms of identification sir?

HAROLD
Oh come on now this is to much. I just need you to stamp and sign my form.

POLICE WOMAN
The police need to remain ever vigilant sir. I’m not hired to make you happy, I’m hired to keep you safe.

HAROLD
Okay, whatever Batman, I have a credit card, will that do?

POLICE WOMAN
I suppose it will have to.

She studies the proffered credit card and then somewhat reluctantly hands it back.

She stamps the paper, signs and dates it, and then hands it back to Harold.

HAROLD
Thank you.

POLICE WOMAN
You’re welcome sir, and don’t call ever call me Batman again.

Harold takes the photocopy and his drivers license from the police officer, then the wallet off the desk, and walks out the door.

EXT. POLICE STATION – CONTINUOUS

Harold leaves the police station, puts the photocopy under his arm, and opens his wallet to reinsert his drivers license.

He looks down at in confused.

He pulls out one of the cards, it’s another drivers license, but instead of Harold’s face on it, it has the face of the blond man from inside the police station.

Harold feels his pocket and then pulls out his wallet. He turns back to the police station with a laugh.

INT. POLICE STATION FOYER – CONTINUOUS

Harold walks up the blond man who is now being served by the police officer, and hands him his wallet.

HAROLD
Sorry mate, I accidentally grabbed it when I left before.

The blond man thanks him with a laugh. The police officer looks shocked.

HAROLD (CONT’D)
Stay vigilant Batman.
