INT. ATLANTA RED CARPET ROOM -- ANOTHER DAY
Jerry now sits next to a towering white 27 year-old basketball player with a bad haircut. He is CALVIN NACK. They are signing a contract in the airport lounge. A little BOY approaches the player with a basketball trading card.
Are you Calvin Nack? Could you
sign my card?
Nack bends down with a kindly-looking face.
I'm sorry little fella. I can't
sign that particular brand of
card. I can only sign Pro-Jam
Blue Dot cards.
The Little Boy looks confused. As Calvin Nack turns to grab an orange juice from a barmaid, Jerry smoothly dishes off a business card to the little boy.

INT. HOSPITAL BEDROOM -- NIGHT
Hockey Player STEVE REMO, 33, is a big man in a small bed. He is in traction, with concussion. DOCTOR stands nearby, shoots Jerry a look of concern. Family is nearby.

is my wife. And you are...
Jerry nods encouragingly, presents his best "familiar" face.

Doc. If I play in 65% of the
games, I make my bonus.
EXT. HOSPITAL HALLWAY -- NIGHT
Remo's 14 year-old SON (JESSE) confronts Jerry outside the hospital room. He's a hulking kid, a Pop Warner football player himself. His voice is in the process of changing.
This is his fourth concussion.
Shouldn't somebody get him to stop?
As he talks, Jerry's cellular phone rings in his bag.
Come on -- it'd take a tank to
stop your dad. It would take all
five Super Trooper VR Warriors,
The kid stares at Maguire. It feels as if the kid is peering into his soul... and all he sees is trash.
What’s the movie? What do learn about Jerry in these two very short scenes?
