Carl and Shane

First panel gets its own row.  Panels 2 and 3 shared a row, as do panels 4 and 5.

1 - Shot from above looking down.  A pigeon, Shane, files above the sprawling cityscape of a burgeoning metropolis.  Among the buildings below him, another pigeon, Carl, is visible standing on the edge of the rooftop.

SHANE (quietly) (1): Is that Carl?

SHANE (loudly) (2): Carl, is that you?!

2 - Shot from behind the pigeons, looking off the edge of the building.  Shane lands behind Carl and looks towards him; Carl continues to look out over the city.

SHANE: It's been too long!  How've you b--

CARL (interrupting): She's gone.  She left me.  And my will to live left with her.

3 - Still shot from behind.  Shane has moved over to Carl and has placed a reassuring wing on his shoulder.  Carl pulls away, angry and frustrated.  This surprises Shane.

SHANE: Carl, you say that every tim--

CARL (interrupting): Well, maybe this time I'm serious!  I'm done with this.  I'm going to jump.

4 - Switch angles to look head-on at the birds.  Shane has lowered his wing.  He looks away uncomfortably.  Carl continues to fume.

SHANE: Carl...

5 - Shane looks back at Carl and says what he has to say.  Carl looks at his feet, pouting.

SHANE: You know we can fly, right?

CARL: ...Yes.
