DOCTOR:
Is your name Solomon?

NICK shakes his head.

DOCTOR (CONT’D)
Are you sure?

NICK nods.

DOCTOR (CONT’D)
Lemme see this.

The DOCTOR looks at the paper marker on NICK’s neck.

DOCTOR (CONT’D)
Is this yours?

NICK nods.

DOCTOR (CONT’D)
This isn’t yours. This can’t be yours! I’m going to take this one
off and cut it up…
(he extracts a pair of scissors and does so)
Shred it… so no one gets a hold of it. What I’m going to do now,
I’m going to give you this one.
(he staples a new marker around NICK’s neck)
There. How’s that? Does that feel better?

NICK nods. The DOCTOR directs a finger at him.

DOCTOR (CONT’D)
That one’s yours.
