SND-2201 - Door Opens
Robin still being carried by Olaf, enters from , followed by Ryan and Zoe, who is clinging to his side
Robin: "Thanks Olaf ... you can put me down now."
Olaf sets her down
Robin locks and chains the door
Robin turns to face Ryan, furious
Robin (angry): "You fucker. You lying fucker!"
Ryan: "Robin! Everything I did for you was from the bottom of my heart, I swear!"
Robin: "I hope you're gonna rot in hell!"
Robin slams her fist against a ClubTable1 in frustration
Robin (angry): "Rrrrrrrrrr ... SHIT!"
Olaf: "I knew something was fishy about you."
Robin: "I can't believe it ... the freaking killer cop! IN THE ACAB!"
Zoe is confused, still clinging to Ryan
Zoe: "Robin, what are you talking about?"
Robin pulls Zoe away from Ryan and points her finger at him
Robin: "This shit fucking killed Mila!"
Olaf: "What a connivingly convincing cunt!"
Zoe is confused
Zoe: "What? No ... he couldn't have!"
Robin: "Look at him! Remember the face that was all over the news after she was killed? Police Detective Chase? LOOK AT HIM!"
Ryan: "YOU KNEW MILA?"
Zoe looks up at Ryan, still uncertain
Zoe: "... Ryan?"
Ryan closes his eyes in frustration ... then sags, defeated
Ryan: "She's right. It's my fault Mila is dead."
Zoe: "Ryan ...?"
Ryan opens his eyes, glaring at Robin and Olaf
Ryan: "But I didn't kill her. I loved her! It was Cross and his men. I could have saved her. But I wasn't home."
Ryan is spent. He slumps down on the playrail.
Ryan: "I'm sorry."
Robin does not believe him
Robin (angry): "If it wasn't you, then why ... did ... you ... run ...?"
Ryan puts his hands over his face as he remembers that awful night
Ryan: "It was supposed to be ME dead in my house, not her! Ex-colleague warned me. They were out to get me next. Still are."
Olaf: "That's not what the cops said."
Ryan drops his hands and gives Olaf a hard look
Ryan: "So NOW you suddenly believe the cops, huh?"
Olaf looks confused. This is more than his brain can handle.
Olaf: "Uh ..."
Zoe: "I don't. I believe HIM."
Robin stares at Zoe in disbelief
Robin: "Have you been skipping your meds again or what is suddenly wrong with you?"
Zoe: "This schmo has been the fucking perfect gentleman. Unfortunately."
Zoe look into Ryan's eyes, then turns back to Robin
Zoe: "He risked his life to save your ass the night he came in. You think just any wolf or dog would just walk in and risk that for you?"
Robin: "More like YOUR ass!"
Zoe: "Everyone's asses were on the line that night, both figuratively and literally."
Robin is reluctant to agree, but she can't argue with Zoe's reasoning
Robin turns her attention to Ryan
Robin: "Okay, hero. So why DID you do that?"
Ryan looks exhausted, at the end of his rope. His spirit is broken and he doesn't have the will or strength to hide anything anymore.
Ryan: "I grew up believing cops were the good guys. So I became a cop. I always wanted to be one of the good guys. Still do."
Olaf: "Good guys for dogs. Good guys for anyone not a cat."
Ryan: "I saw that. But the force is a brotherhood. You see bad things and turn a blind eye, you don't betray your brothers. But I did. I had to."
Robin narrows her eyes, still suspicious of Ryan
Robin: "I'm not buying it. "
Ryan: "Can't blame you."
Zoe: "That can't possibly be the full story!"
Ryan: "Would it make a difference? I think it's time for me to leave."
Ryan stands up and prepares to leave
Robin: "Yeah, maybe that's better for all of us."
Zoe: "*sigh* No! Please don't just walk away like that. C'mon, hero. You've had a bad day."
Zoe takes Ryan's arm and leads him out to 
Robin: "I'm so disappointed in you, Zoe"
Zoe: "I don't care."
Robin: "And I don't care that you don't care. Just get that cop out of my sight."
Zoe: "You're so pathetic."
Robin: "WILL YOU JUST FUCK OFF. ARRRGH."
Robin slumps down on the counter, waiting until they're gone
Zoe and Robin leave at 
SND-2202 - Door Slams Shut
Olaf: "So what now."
Robin: "I dunno. What do YOU think, Olaf ... is that guy shit or shinola?
Olaf: "What the hell is shinola?"
