Page Eleven:

This page will have seven panels.

(Panel) 1.

A long horizontal panel of looking down at the San Francisco skyline, as if from a helicopter.

1 CAP: Day Two. 37 hours left.

2 CAP: So far, everything about this Earth seems right. We haven't come across any major anomalies, though none of us have been looking too hard.

3 CAP: If this isn't our Earth . . . it's got to be. Our lives are whole again.

(Panel) 2.

Rembrandt is in his manager's office (as seen in the pilot). Artie Field is still the same, still chomping on a cigar. Rembrandt is kicking back, his legs up on Artie's desk.

4 ARTIE: I really appreciate you coming back to me, Rembrandt. You've always been like a son to me, and when you disappeared. . .

5 REMBRANDT: Hey, Artie, why would I go anywhere else? You were with me through thick and thin.

(Panel) 3.

Artie smiles, gesturing towards the wall of gold records with his cigars. Rembrandt starts to get up to go look at them.

6 ARTIE: Oh, so the boy has changed. You never would have admitted there were thin times before. Always a "career lull," never the end.

7 REMBRANDT: Well, I've seen and done a lot of things since we last saw each other, Artie.

8 ARTIE: I've seen the movies.

(Panel) 4.

Rembrandt smirks, and points to the gold records and photos with his thumb.

9 REMBRANDT: Well, I don't know how accurate the movies are. None of us could bring ourselves to watch them just yet.

10 REMBRANDT: So, how are the Spinning Topps?

(Panel) 5.

Artie talks, his hands gesturing to either side in a shrug, the cigar in one hand. Rembrandt is surprised. EDITOR NOTE: Please check spelling on "meshugina."

11 ARTIE: Ah, they're still pretty big. They stayed pretty much the same. Never did any of that rap stuff. They got an acapella album out that's gone platinum.

12 ARTIE: They've all called this morning, you know. They're happy you're back safely.

13 ARTIE: Even Maurice Fish called. He's not meshugina any more. They let him out a few months ago.

(Panel) 6.

Rembrandt shakes his head, grinning. Artie sits back against his desk, folding his arms, smirking.

14 REMBRANDT: Huh. Maybe I can call them today. Give them the thrill of talking to the Crying Man.

15 ARTIE: No time to call them. You've got to head out to Candlestick to okay set-up for your big onetime-only pay-per-view concert tomorrow night.

16 ARTIE: I've been up all night negotiating. HBO's broadcasting it.

(Panel) 7.

Close in on Rembrandt as he gasps, shocked and surprised, but in a good way.

17 REMBRANDT: What?

18 REMBRANDT: Artie, man, you did great!
