Discussion Board Back Up, but… - posted by Don

The Discussion Board is back up, however all postings since late March 22nd have been lost – about 12 days worth of postings. I will be reposting the script threads since the 22nd as quickly as I can. Also, anyone who registered since the 22nd will have to re-register.

Apologies

Don

Haha. You too hey Shelton? I’m always getting fishy looks from some of my co-workers, because everytime they walk past my desk it seems I’m looking at Simply Scripts.
But I justify it by telling myself that the smokers spend more time outside having smoke breaks than I do looking at the net, plus, unlike the smokers, I’m still at my desk and able to answer my phone and deal with any clients that walk in.

Shelton

I can’t go that route since I’m a smoker too, but if anybody gives me funny looks, I just tell them “Back off, man! You’re about to get cut!”

That usually does the trick. Either that or I just get all my work done in a quick and efficient manner and nobody has a reason to bother me.

So is this like ‘Be kind rewind’? The main board has been wiped out by Don’s extra large magnet and so we have got to swede a version on here?

Anyone got any favorite threads they want re-making?

INT. OFFICE – DAY

Stan (32) sits at his desk staring in disbelief at his computer screen, which reads “The Discussion Board is Temporarily Down. It will be back up shortly. Don”

STAN
Shit!

Suddenly the door to Stan’s office swings open and in walks…..

Mike Selton (mid 20′s). Tears stream down his face.

STAN
Are you alright?

Mike shakes his head and starts to cry.

MIKE
No! What are we gonna do with are free time now!?

Stan stands up and quickly embraces Mike with a hug.

STAN
Don’t worry. Don will have everything straightend out soon. I promise.

Mike reaches his hand around and pinches Stans butt.

Mike, is the person giving you funny looks a great big fat person?

23.

Zack
April 3rd, 2008 at 6:28 pm

The great big fat person drunk his milkshake! And then he made Mike call it.

24.

"me"
April 3rd, 2008 at 6:39 pm

The great big fat person refuses to rub the lotion on its skin.

Don threatens the great big fat person with the hose again.

Cut to.
INT. Convenience Store – Day

A man of Spanish appearance with a bad haircut walks into a convenience store and approaches the counter.

CLERK
Holy shit! You’re Javier Bardem.

JAVIER
Yes. I am.

Clerk
I loved you in No Country for Old Men.

JAVIER.
Loved me? (yells) Loved me!

CLERK
(scared)
Hey. Take it easy man. I was just……

A dark shadow falls across Javier’s face. His eyes turn glassy

JAVIER
You were just what, friendo?

The clerk defensively holds his hands up and takes a step back from the counter.

CLERKS
Hey. Get the fuck out here, man.

Javier flips a coin and slaps it down on the counter.

JAVIER
Call it.

CLERK
There are security cameras in here. If you do anything to me you’ll get busted.

JAVIER
Well, that depends.

CLERK
Depends on what?

JAVIER
On whether the camera sees me or not. Now call it.

She was a size 14, and I got her by tricking her into helping me get a couch into my van.

My van with no windows. MUHUHAHAHAHA!

And why did Murphy’s comment about making swedes get me thinking about Pia? Rawr!

Zack gets a 2/10 on his script for getting my age wrong and failing to point out that I cry sunshine and Lucky Charms.

The pinching Stan’s butt part was right on the money. Props there, for realizing that I do love the “man-ass”.

CUT TO-

INT. MIKE’S ROOM- NIGHT

Mike (now in his early 30′s) sits on his bed, crying sunshine and Lucky Charms.

The bedroom door opens and Jordan (early 20′s), drunk off of his ass, stumbles in. He holds a milk shake in his hands.

JORDAN
Hey Mike… What’s up…?

Mike sits up in the chair and wipes the tears from his eyes.

MIKE
Just waiting for the boards to be back up. What are you doing here?

Jordan shrugs.

JORDAN
My room-mates are doing it, and I don’t wanna listen to the moaning.

Mike nods towards Jordan’s milk shake.

MIKE
Is that vanilla?

JORDAN
It’s mine!

Mike stands and raises a fist to Jordan.

MIKE
I drink your milk shake!

1/10

Age still wrong and you stole my joke.

Zack
April 3rd, 2008 at 7:43 pm

There’s just no pleasing you Mike!

30.

Michael
April 3rd, 2008 at 8:14 pm

Just keep at it Zack. I’m sure that eventually Mike will begin to appreciate it. He may even pat you on the head.

Ouch.

It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.
