The Fugitive Generation (iv)

INT. LIVING ROOM -- DAY

Apartment is sparsely furnished. MRS. BERNSTEIN, 72 and petite, stands in living room. Maloney and Kelly search apartment quickly.

MALONEY: How do folks like you expect us to protect you from muggers and rapists, if you won't cooperate with us when we knock on your doors?

MRS. BERNSTEIN: Any mugger or rapist can knock on the door. And say they're from the FBI.

MR. BERNSTEIN: What do you want us to do?

KELLY: We want you to look at these photographs of Greenberg and some Weather fugitives.

MR. BERNSTEIN: What do you mean by "Weather fugitives"?

KELLY: They're people we're looking for who are armed. And very dangerous. Greenberg is helping them out.

Kelly shows them photograph.
