It's the next day and Johnny is back at the bar talking with Archie.

Johnny: Too bad about Uzza.

Archie: Yes it is. You know that I record everything that goes on in my bar.

Johnny: No, I did not know that.

Archie: Well I do, and I would like you to make what happened last night part of your next broadcast.

Johnny: It will show you serving liquor to a woman you knew to be a Muslim. It will show Uzza questioning the tenets of her faith, a capital offense where she comes from.

Archie: I will lose my license, I will probably go to jail, her killer will go free and the guy who shot you, or someone like him, will come back to finish the job.

Johnny: You're asking me to commit suicide.

Archie: They are willing to kill and die for what they believe in; we should at least be ready to risk our lives, like Uzza did, in the hope that it will make a difference.

Johnny: But it won't make a difference. It's too late!
