INT. HOSPITAL XRAY LOOKY ROOM - Day

Steve's hot blonde cougar mom GEORGIA AUSTIN is talking to DOCTOR KAHN REBUILDER. Her eyes are red from TONS OF CRYING. She is holding Steve's lucky helmet.

GEORGIA AUSTIN
He'll never walk again?

DOCTOR REBUILDER
That is the conventional wisdom, yes. But...

GEORGIA AUSTIN
But what?

DOCTOR REBUILDER
Well, Mrs. Austin-

GEORGIA AUSTIN
(flirting)
Miss...

DOCTOR REBUILDER
Miss Austin. Your son has suffered massive head and spine trauma. Regular medicine science would say he would be lucky to come out of that coma. I have a different opinion.

GEORGIA AUSTIN
What is it, Doctor? I'll do anything.

DOCTOR REBUILDER
I am an advanced doctor experimenting with advanced science. When I'm not being a doctor I work for Blacksun Positronics. We make artificial limbs for hero soldiers coming home from Iraq. They just completed a prototype spine interface and robotic frame. It links straight into the brain and allows him to control robotic limbs instead of regular limbs. It's very advanced. It would give him superhuman strength. Superhuman speed. Lightning reflexes.

GEORGIA AUSTIN
What's the catch? There's gotta be a catch.

DOCTOR REBUILDER
There's no catch with robotics. They run on solar power and batteries. It works very well. It's just that, well, Mrs. Austin...

GEORGIA AUSTIN
(flirting again)
Miss...

DOCTOR REBUILDER
MISS Austin. Your son, he's, well, he is severely brain damaged. His IQ will be around 65. There's nothing we can do about that.

GEORGIA AUSTIN
(with conviction)
Do it, Doctor.
