Houston, we have a problem...


...or rather my lovely friend Silvia does.

She wants to write a scene where the page and therefore the sequence is split into two a la Kill Bill.

Can this be done in Final Draft? If not, does any other software allow for this?

Over to you.

Why doesn't she just use INTERCUT? Looks like this:
----------------------
INTERCUT:

INT. LIVING ROOM/BEDROOM - DAY

Lucy types on her laptop, sends an email.

LUCY
Tell her to use intercut.

Elinor reclines on her large waterbed, cocktail in hand, her feet rubbed by a gorgeous naked man.

ELINOR
I haven't got time to read my emails, can't you see the stud at my feet?

(END OF INTERCUT)
----------------------------
Anything else in a spec will smell of DIRECTING FROM THE PAGE since it's up to the prodco to decide how it's gonna look; it's Silvia's job to tell the story.

Hope that helps!

Ooops. Surreal message deleted. Too many people using similar names on comments.

Going to lie down now and give my brain a rest.

it can be done pretty easily in after effects.
