Synopsis: Dawn and Ian go to an aquarium to for some down time and hopefully to overcome their ordeal.

Characters: Dawn, Ian
INT. AQUARIUM - SHARK SECTION. DAY
DAWN is looking at some sharks behind glass.
JONTI: So Dawn why are we here at the Aquarium?
DAWN: Well I just thought what with everything, the…excitement of the last couple of days, you know the violence, the many goes through the car washes I just thought Ian and I could use a rest. A bit of a break. You know a change is as as good as a rest.
JONTI: So you thought you'd look at some sharks (BEAT) for a rest.
DAWN shakes her head.
INT. AQUARIUM - MANTA RAY. DAY.
IAN is smiling broadly as he stares down at the manta rays swimming in their tank.
JONTI: You look very happy today Ian.
JONTI: Do you like sealife Ian?
IAN: Some of them.
JONTI: I take it you like Manta Rays?
JONTI: Why do you like Manta Rays Ian?
IAN: I find them calming.
JONTI: You do?
JONTI: What's calming about them?
IAN: Their flatness. I find their flatness very calming.
INT. AQUARIUM. DAY
DAWN is still admiring Sharks.
JONTI: You're spending an awfully long time with the Sharks Dawn.
DAWN: Well there the most interesting thing here aren't they. I could go to a beach and sea crabs or Jellyfish…
JONTI: You might see a Shark on a beach.
DAWN: Not up close like this. Not Mano E Mano. Not face to face. Not on a level playing field.
JONTI: But it's behind…2 foot of glass or something.
DAWN: But we can see each other, we can look at each other in the eye.
JONTI: Why would you want to do that?
DAWN: I have a lot of empathy with the shark.
JONTI: You empaphise with Sharks?
DAWN: They're very misunderstood animals. I feel I understand them.
JONTI: What do you…How…I don't…I don't Under…
DAWN: A shark, right, can smell a drop of blood from like a million miles a way. It's hunting, always hunting, searching for something. And you know like I can hunt down a fellow brother and sister, a jones, from like 27 miles away. We're alike in so many ways. I understand it's neverending quest.
JONTI: But yours probably will end. When you find everybody.
DAWN: What if I take a break? I could just stay here in the Aquarium for like a year or something.
JONTI: Why would you want to?
DAWN: I don't want to, all I am trying to get across is that the quest could be neverending.
IAN arrives holding the customary Bisto tin and sports drink.
DAWN: D'you enjoy that Ian? Looking at the Manta Rays?
IAN: Yes I feel very relaxed now.
JONTI: Dawn was just saying how she was like a shark.
IAN takes a look at a shark in the shark tank and then back at DAWN.
IAN: I can see that.
IAN nods sagely. The comment escapes DAWN who is examining some info on Sharks.
