Mickís apartment. Nikita is at the door.

Nikita: Hullo, Mick.

Mick: Popsicle? (he glances over his shoulder, confused. Itís obviously the middle of the night.) Yeah! Be right there, love.

Nikita: We have a delicate situation here. Youíre not alone.

Mick: Well, no, not exactly. You see, I ran into this bird at the library, Felice. I love reading, you see, and there was this book, "Great Chefs of the Thirties and Forties"...

Nikita: Shut up, Mick.

Mick: Do I need to go in? To Section, I mean? Is there something that requires Mickís special, one-of-a-kind...

Nikita: Shut up, Mick. Iíll get to the point.

Mick: Because itís the middle of the night, Popsicle, and I am, uh, entertaining, know what I mean? Got a bird looking at my etchings this very moment.

Nikita: Condoms. Donít bother to count them. Just give me the box.

Mick: What?

Nikita: Donít make me repeat myself, Mick. I am not a patient person.

Mick: What? You and Michael? Right now? I mean, my word. Things certainly have heated up between the two of you, havenít they?

Nikita: Donít make me hurt you, Mick.

Mick: Well, well, well. Iím certainly willing share. Company man and all that. But itís a new box, and I donít think...

Nikita: Just give me the box, Mick, and Iíll let you live long enough to buy another one.

Mick: All right! All right! Just half a mo. (He disappears into the apartment, leaving Nikita standing in the hallway. She is not pleased about any part of this situation. Mick reappears in the doorway and hands Nikita an unopened box of condoms.)

Nikita: Good-night, Mick. (She snatches the box from his hand and strides back to her apartment, leaving an opened-mouth Mick standing in the doorway. As she reaches apartment 412, Michael steps into the hallway, fully dressed, handing Nikita her coat.)

Michael: (to Nikita) Josephine. (Nikita tosses the package inside her doorway, Michael closes the door, and the two of them head for the elevator.)

Mick: Excusez-moi. Would a ďthank youĒ have been too much to ask? After all, itís not me who came rapping on your door in the middle of the night was it? Nikita? Michael? (Michael and Nikita stare stonily ahead as the elevator doors close shut.) Yeah, yeah, I got it. ďShut up, Mick.Ē (Mick stares at the elevator doors a few more moments, then looks longingly at Nikitaís apartment, where his freshly purchased condoms now reside).

Felice: (From inside Mickís apartment) Mick? Are you coming?

Mick: (thoroughly dejected, sighs.) I sincerely doubt it.
