An elevator opens and LANGDON SHAW bustles excitedly through the room, leading the Second Salemers. He carries maps, several old books and a handful of photographs.

MARY LOU is composed, CHASTITY looks shy and MODESTY is excited, curious. CREDENCE looks nervous – he doesn’t like crowds.

LANGDON
… and so this is the newsroom.

LANGDON spins around excitedly, eager to show the Second Salemers that he holds authority here.

LANGDON
Let’s go!

LANGDON moves around the office and speaks to some of the workers.

LANGDON
Hey, how are you? Make way for the Barebones! Now, they’re just putting the papers to bed, as they say.

Looks of veiled amusement from journalists as LANGDON leads his group to double doors at the end of the open-plan area.
