INT. WILSON LIBRARY BASEMENT - NIGHT

ARNOLD sits at the basement exit desk. It's fairly quiet. He is typing and clicking intently as he works on the Patron Address Cleanup project. Suddenly, the silence is broken when a PATRON approaches the desk. ARNOLD smiles and keeps an open stance as he greets him; it's clear he's viewed the customer service training presentation.

ARNOLD

Hello there!

PATRON

Howdy! The name's Patron -- Gene R. Patron! The 'R' stands for Ric!

ARNOLD

Okay, GeneRic Patron! How may I help you?

GENERIC PATRON

Wellsir, I'll be steadily askin' you questions throughout the night. Y'know, standard stuff: where are the vending machines, how do I use that newfangled Value Port, and how does this Uniprint thing work?

ARNOLD

Sounds like it'll be more busy than usual tonight!

GENERIC PATRON

Just a bit more activity than normal, I reckon. On account of the midterms, you see. By the way, can I check out these here books?

ARNOLD

Sure can!

GENERIC PATRON

Great! Thank you, my good sir!

ARNOLD

You're welcome; have a great night!

 

The PATRON leaves the library. ARNOLD checks the time; it's already nine o'clock! He quits Internet Explorer and Aleph, logs off the computer, and completes the basement exit closing procedures.
