CARL
Get the headphone splitter. 

SARAH
Is someone shadowing your calls? 

CARL
No you have to listen to this. 

(They listen. They bob their heads. It kind of slaps.)

SARAH
Wait, this kind of slaps. 

GREB
What is it? 

CARL
The trap remix of Jamal Kashoggi’s torture audio. 

GREB
Did you make this? 

CARL
My cousin made it.

SARAH
This is gonna be huge.

CARL
She’s really coming up in the Jersey trap scene. 

SARAH
Oh wow. 

GREB
Isn’t it...unethical?

SARAH
Almost certainly. 

CARL
I think...if you consider the fact that anything released to the public is going to become a trap remix on soundcloud...then the release of the audio is unethical. And the rest is just the natural consequence. 

SARAH
I think the torture was unethical. 

CARL
Yes. 

SARAH
And the recording of the torture.

CARL
Yes yes.
But! 

SARAH
But? 

CARL
The recording was key evidence, right? So maybe someone was recording to make a strong case for his murder.

SARAH
Oh good point. 

CARL
BUT if he OR SHE was a torturer, 

SARAH
Unethical. 

CARL
Trying to show the world the terrible situation he or she had been put into 

SARAH
Ethical.

CARL
OR they’re just like really sick. 

SARAH
Unethical. 

GREB
Yeah and like recorded the audio to masturbate to later on.

SARAH
Ew, Greb.

DIANE
Professional environment, Greb.

GREB
Motive is important, I guess is my point.

CARL
Super important.
