Another fake script page. Nothing to see there.
Looks close to actual screenplays I've read. I don't see anything immediately marking it as fake. A lot of screenplays have even more scene setup and direction that what they have here. It's not uncommon.
Also, Whedon is writing the script. He's not telling anyone but himself what to do in the scene.
