It's Just PoliticsMature

[It is morning in a lavish apartment. Everything in the room is top dollar from the curtains to the nails in the floor. Leon is lying on the bed, exhausted from a hard night of drinking and women]

Leon: (Groans) That was one crazy night. I won't get rid of this hangover for weeks!

[Leon gets out of bed and begins to prepare for the day ahead.]

(Offstage) Butler: Master Leon, sir. It seems we have a guest here to see you. A Mister... I'm sorry, sir. What was your name again? Ludwick? Odd name. A Mister Ludwick to see you, sir.

Leon: (Sighs) Alright. Give me a minute then send him in. I'm half-naked in here!

[Leon gets dressed and opens the door. Ludwick enters.]

Ludwick: Sit down. Now.

Leon: Excuse me?

Ludwick: You heard me. Sit down. Now.

Leon: I'm sorry, but I don't understand.

Ludwick: You don't have to. Now sit down and shut the fuck up!

Leon: Look, pal, I don't know what's going on here, but there is certainly no need for such foul language.

Ludwick: Look here, "pal", you mess with the bull, you get the fucking horns. You know what I mean? (begins shouting) You know what I fucking mean?

Leon: What did I say about the foul language. I don't put up with that sort of language in my apartment. You say one more foul word...

Ludwick: And you'll do what? I'll tell you what you'll do, jack fucking shit.

Leon: That's it, buddy. Get out of my house.

Ludwick: Excuse me?

Leon: (still calm) Get out of my house. Now.

Ludwick: You think I came all the fucking way here just to be told to get out of the fucking house? I don't fucking think so.

Leon: Well, I do. Get out of my house. And if you won't, I'll gladly make you. It wouldn't be the first time I dealt with punks like you.

[Ludwick lunges at Leon. Leon grabs Ludwick and breaks his arm.  Ludvick kicks. Leon blocks and breaks Ludwick's knee. Leon picks him up and tosses him to the floor.]

Leon: (points to the butler) I think it's high time that you showed Mr. Ludwick out.

Butler: Agreed, sir. (Carries Ludwick into elevator)

[Leon looks out of his window]

Leon: What did he mean, mess with the bull? I haven't done anything. I've never seen that guy in my life. Oh, well. Maybe it was just a big misunderstanding.

[Leon sees Butler throwing Ludwick into a taxi cab. He hears Ludwick screaming "What the fuck do you think you're doing? I'm not fucking finished with that fucker! Do you know who I fucking am? Do you know who I fucking am? I'll fucking kill you for this. You know that, right? I'll fucking kill you for this!"
