INT. A HOUSE – NIGHT

The window on the door smashes quietly as a gloved hand comes through it and proceeds to open the door. Two men in balaclavas enter, one of them holding a large bag. They proceed to the living room, where one of them starts taking the DVD player, the other approaches the computer. Next to the computer is a hard drive. 

He turns the computer on.

BURGLAR ONE
(stage whisper)
“What are you doing!?”

BURGLAR TWO
(stage whisper)
“He’s got an external hard drive.”

BURGLAR ONE
(stage whisper)
“Oh, cool.”

Burglar two clicks ‘back up computer’ on the screen. Burglar one continues to take silver, gadgets and blu rays.

LATER

Both men are sitting in front of the computer, watching it back up. BURGLAR ONE is agitated.

BURGLAR ONE
Come on! Come on! What are you doing!?

BURGLAR TWO
We’re nearly there… There, okay.

He ejects the hard drive and puts the computer in the bag, leaving the hard drive. Just before he leaves, he writes a note before they both exit.

INT. HOUSE – DAY

The WOMAN is in her dressing gown, talking to a POLICEMAN. 

WOMAN
They had everything, I mean… The Telly, the dvd player, my phone, our films, the computer…

MAN enters.

MAN
Look at this.

He hands them the note. 

The note reads:
“We backed up your computer for you before we took it, so you’ve still got all your stuff. Hopefully we didn’t make too much of a mess.

Signed,
Courteous Burglar.”
