They look around for the intruders. Two people emerge claiming to be the Writer and Director of the scene. They declare that John and Sharon are ruining this script, which was carefully prepared especially for them. John and Sharon can't believe their lives are scripted, but they eventually leave together. The Writer and Director sit and discuss their success and talk about how they're in charge. (Or are they?)"
