Ok first off, this is not my work, I do not own these character or any part of the Alice mini series. This is taken word for word from the original night one script, which I was lucky enough to buy off ebay (thank god for ebay!). Enjoy!

Act six

fade in:

EXT. UNDERWORLD CITY - Night

Hatter leads Alice down a side street.

Hatter

This Way!

They run down steps that lead to a city dock.

EXT. WOODEN JETTY. CONTINUOUS – NIGHT

Small boats are moored along the side of the jetty. Black water stretches away from the city...

Hatter and Alice run to the end and jump into a small motor boat filled with bundles of wool.

As Hatter desperately tries to start the motor, Alice looks anxiously back.

Hatter

There's a knack to this...

(pulling at the cord)

And I never learnt it...

Mad March and the others appear down the steps and sprint towards them.

Alice

Hurry!

Hatter

Untie the rope!

She does so just as... the motor finally splutters to life.

And they're away... out over open water as the murky curtain of night closes in around them.

Mad March watches them disappear.

10 of Clubs

I'll call for the Scarab.

He pulls out a communication device... finds a connection.

EXT. POOL OF TEARS. OPEN WATER- DAY

The morning sun casts an orange glow over the water.

Hatter and Alice buzz over the tranquil surface, far from the city.

Alice

Where is the Casino?

Hatter

Don't even think about it. You wouldn't last a minute in that place.

Alice

How do you now?

Hatter

I live here!

Alice

Maybe they'll trade Jack for the ring.

Hatter

I've told you, you cant negotiate with the Queen, but...

An idea is coming to him.

Alice

But what?

Hatter

The White Rabbit is a different kettle of onions. Perhaps they'll do a deal... maybe even spring your boyfriend.

Alice

You think that'll work?

Hatter

It's a long shot, but the only one we've got.

Alice

We?

Hatter

My shop's been ransacked. I'm homeless. I'm a target, not only for the Suits but for the Resistance. And there's only so many places in Wonderland I can hide. As I see it, I have one option...

Alice

Which is...?

Hatter

To go with you, back to your world.

He avoids eye contact, looks out at the vast lake.

Alice feels for him... and rather than getting tough she-

Alice

I'm sorry Hatter. I guess I've ruined your life here haven't I?

Hatter

I had it coming. Dodo was right, I was dancing too close to the flame. Anyway, whatever's happened's happened and now, we're both in the same boat.

They share a smile... never a truer word spoken...

Hatter (cont'd)

You'll be back in a cozy pizza parlor chewing on egg fried rice and playing footsie with Jack before you know it.

Alice

Pizza parlors don't serve egg fried rice.

Hatter

Clam chowder then.

Alice

Pizza. They just serve pizza.

Hatter

But isn't that flat bread with tomato and cheese?

Alice

Yes.

Hatter

And that's all they serve?

Alice

You can have it with pepperoni.

Hatter

Isn't that processed pork butt?

Alice

I try not to think about it too carefully.

Hatter tries to picture flatbread and pork butt.

Hatter

I can see it's going to take me a while to get used to your culinary tastes.

(seeing something above.)

Uh oh.

Alice

What?

Hatter points to the Giant Scarab in the distant sky, getting closer

Hatter

Before we do anything we've got to shake that royal flush.

He hits the throttle and heads for land.

I'll get more up as I have time.
