STRIKE TWO (any gender, late twenties on up)
You've got... oh... let's give it one minute, Sandy. Yes I know who you are and I'm sure you know who I am. You have one minute to buzz me in. It'll be just me... the rest of the crew will stay on the sidewalk.
Sandy? I know you've got Alex hidden away in there. I admire you for protecting your kin. I'm very family oriented as well. In fact, you could say I wanted Alex to be a part of my extended family, my neighborhood. But to do that, you need to pay a little... let's call it a little extra community property tax. I just wanted to collect what's rightfully ours.
Sandy, you've got twenty more seconds. I've very much like to hear this door make a nice buzzing and clicking noise.
Sandy, Alex did tell you what we do, right? The reason the cops and the firemen are all at Alex's place right now? Sandy, when someone doesn't open the door, we open the house... all four walls and the roof.
