Jay Garrick - Priorities - Grant McLaughlin

1 - On Jay Garrick's hands as he hangs up his signature helmet on a wall hook.

JOAN (off-panel): Are you sure about this?

2 - An older Jay - somewhere between his heyday and his former incarnation prior to the New 52 reboot - wearing civilian clothing turns from the hanging helmet and looks to his wife Joan, who sits at the kitchen table.

JAY: There was a time when I didn't think I ever would be.

3 - Jay moves to the table and pulls out a chair to sit.

JAY: But I am, Joannie.

4 - Jay and Joan sit together at the table, smiling those fond, happy smiles that only two people who have been together for so long and love each other so much can.

JAY (1): I've been at this a long time.  Done a lot of things I'm proud of.  A lot of things I didn't think I'd be able to do.

JAY (2): But time catches us all.

5 - On Jay and Joan's hands, which are clasped / intertwined on top of said kitchen table.

JAY (off-panel): And at the end, there's only one thing I'm worried about missing out on.
