Scene 008 - Free of the Carbonite
INT JABBA'S THRONE ROOM - NIGHT A shadowy figure moves stealthily among the columns at the perimeter of the room and is revealed to be Boushh, the bounty hunter. He picks his way carefully through the snoring, drunken monsters. Han Solo, the frozen space pirate, hangs spotlighted on the wall, his coffin-like case suspended by a force field. The bounty hunter deactivates the force field by flipping a control switch to one side of the coffin. The heavy case slowly lowers to the floor of the alcove. Boushh's ugly helmet leans close to Han's face listening for the breath of life. Nothing. He waits. Han's eyes pop open with a start and he begins coughing. The bounty hunter steadies the staggering newborn. BOUSHH Just relax for a moment. You're free of the carbonite. Han touches his face with his hand and moans. BOUSHH Shhh. You have hibernation sickness. HAN I can't see. BOUSHH Your eyesight will return in time.
