JENNINGS HOME - KITCHEN - EVENING JANICE JENNINGS is at the stove, where a boiling pot sits. She carefully reading over the instructions of a box. Suddenly CASEY JENNINGS walks in where a dress shirt and pants. He also is wearing a bight colorful tie. JANICE Oh my. Look at my handsome son...in his Looney Tunes tie. CASEY Don't I have any other ties? JANICE Well there's one with Pee-Wee Herman on it from when you were seven. Casey thinks it over. CASEY This one will work. Casey then starts to pace about, while Janice goes back to reading the instructions. JANICE (reading) Boil for ten minutes... She takes notices that Casey is pacing. JANICE Honey... (still paces) Sweetie... (still paces) Son of mine... (still paces) Oh boy who cam from my lyons... She walks over and hits in the back of the head. JANICE Cut that crap out. You're making me nervous. CASEY I just want to make a good impression on her folks. JANICE Oh who wouldn't love a young boy who's seeing a therapist and has an occasionally bleeding ulcer? Casey burps a bit. He reaches for his mouth when suddenly a little blood drips. JANICE Speak of the devil... Janice hands her son a small towel for his mouth. CASEY (worried) They're going to hate me! JANICE Just calm down. Relax. Nothing stressful is going to happen. Just then JOHN JENNINGS, walks in only in his underwear. JOHN Honey, I don't want to alarm you but I can't find my pants. JANICE Jesus, John. Go put some fucking pants on! JOHN I can't find any! JANICE Well go fucking put something else on! Don't just stand there in your damn underwear! JOHN Fine! John storms out of the room. Janice is unaware that the boiling water is about to spill out. CASEY Mom. JANICE What? CASEY Mom! The water has now spilled onto the floor. JANICE Damn it! Oh well. It doesn't matter anyway. I prefer my chicken fried. Casey, very stressed out, takes a seat in a nearby chair. JANICE Casey, you need to start to relax right now or this is really going to ruin your evening. CASEY He's going to hate me because I'm atheist. He's going to hate all of us because of it. The door bell rings. JANICE Then that's his problem, Casey. You've got to have a bug constantly up you're ass to judge someone like that just based on their religion. Besides I'm sure he's not the type that would do that. The door bell rings again. She stands up and walks out of the kitchen. CUT TO: INT. LIVING ROOM - CONTINUOUS Janice enters from the kitchen and heads for the front door. JANICE Coming! She reaches it and opens the door. Behind stand the Johnson family. There's MINISTER MARK JOHNSON, who's dressed in his minister outfit. He's middle aged, very well built, with thinning hair. His wife, SANDRA JOHNSON, stands right next to him. She's a brunette in her late thirties, who seems very bashful. And behind the two is their daughter, KAY JOHNSON. As soon as the door is open, religious choir music begins to play. This greatly confuses Janice. SANDRA Oops. Left my Ipod on. Sandra reaches down to her waist and turns off an Ipod. The holy music immediately stops. Janice just stands there, with her mouth wide open in awe. JANICE (to herself) Oh...Jesus! SMASH CUT TO: OPENING CREDIT SEQUENCE: Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar" plays over the credits. AFTER CREDITS: FADE IN: INT. WILL'S ROOM - SAME WILL COOPER is standing in front of a mirror, talking on the phone with JOEL MAYBERRY (we intercut between the two of them.) In the background Stevie Wonder's "Superstition." WILL Okay, now that we've got the socks picked out now let's pick the shirt out. There's two choices: one says "no fat chicks" and the other expresses my constant hard-on for Canadian girls who say "aboot." JOEL (sighing) Will...we've been on the phone for forty eight minutes...are we really going to go through every article of clothing that you're going to wear tonight? WILL C'mon, Joel. This is important! I mean I am finally going out on the town with Ellen. JOEL What are you guys doing anyway? WILL We're going to see "Crash" or "Rent" or some other piece of indie crap like that. JOEL Well sounds like an interesting first date. WILL Actually, it's not an official date. Joel seems confused. JOEL What do you mean? WILL Well, neither of us never said it was a date. Really it's just two people going to the movies. Joel let's his head sink down and sighs. WILL What was that for? JOEL You and Ellen need to sit down with a pad of paper and figure out just what's going on between you. Because frankly, I'm very lost I know I'm not the only one. WILL What are you talking about? JOEL You hold her hand every night, but you're not dating. You spend every minute with her, but you don't even know if she likes you. Pause. WILL Yeah, I uh...I don't know what you're getting at. Pause. Joel seems a bit frustrated. JOEL Dude, grow a pair and tell her you like her. Joel hangs up. Will sighs and goes back to looking through shirts. WILL Oh, I'll wear my shirt that has Bush's picture next to a monkey's! Will laughs. WILL Perfect! CUT TO: EXT. ELLEN CONNER'S APARTMENT - MINUTES LATER It's a building with several small apartments attached. ELLEN CONNER is sitting on the steps on the building, reading Alice Hoffman's "The Ice Queen." Suddenly a gray old Buick pulls up. Will steps out and Ellen quickly stands up. ELLEN Oh Will. Thank God you're here, I need your help. Ellen puts her hand on his shoulder and slowly leads him to her apartment. WILL (V/O) She's touching my shoulder. Sweet! WILL Sure what's the problem? ELLEN There's a bat in my kitchen. WILL Oh no probl - Will stops dead in his tracks. WILL Wait! A bat! ELLEN Yeah. WILL There's a bat in your apartment? ELLEN That or rats have finally figured out how to grow wings. Will backs up a bit. WILL No, no, no, no, no, no! Beat. WILL I don't do bats. ELLEN Neither do I but that's because I'm accustomed to humans. Look all I want you to do is to get the bat out of my apartment. WILL Can't you just wait till your mom gets home and have your mom get rid of it? ELLEN NO! She'll just want to kill it. WILL Exactly the reason I suggested it. ELLEN I don't want it dead I just want it gone. I don't want to see any animal killed no matter how repulsive they are. Please, Will just help me out here. Pause. Will considers it. WILL (V/O) C'mon. Take Joel's advice and grow a pair. Pause. WILL All right, fine. But I'm not real sure how to get it out of there. Ellen snaps her fingers. ELLEN Don't worry, I have a plan. WILL Isn't that what Hitler said before he shot himself? ELLEN Shut up and follow me. Will reluctantly follows her off camera. CUT TO: INT. WARNER HOME - KITCHEN - SAME BROCK WARNER is standing at the stove, in front of a pan of boiling water. He is struggling to a get a box of noodles open. Suddenly the box rips and the noodles are sent everywhere. BROCK Oh well. We always have more noodles. He starts to pick up the noodles when suddenly we hear an odd sound coming from off-screen. Brock notices this. CUT TO: INT. WARNER HOME - BROCK'S ROOM - SECONDS LATER Brock comes to the doorway and looks in his room. This noise is coming from his computer. He comes over to it and sees what it is. From behind Brock we can see it is an AIM from "SarahRose." BROCK (confused) Sarah? He begins to read the message over again. BROCK (reading) "Can we be friends again?" Brock seems stupefied by this. LOIS (O.S.) Brock? BROCK Um...I'm in my room. LOIS (O.S.) Could you come out here. Brock is conflicted. He doesn't really want to go. He sighs and then leaves. CUT TO: INT. KITCHEN - SECONDS LATER Brock enters and notices LOIS WARNER, who is wearing a red dress. She quickly notices all the noodles on the floor. LOIS Um, sweetie. What's with all the Noodles? BROCK Oh I was making spaghetti. LOIS You were? BROCK I didn't say I was making it well, I just I was making it. LOIS Well as long as you clean up after you're done. She goes over to the counter and starts searching through her purse. The whole time Brock is looking toward his room and barely paying any attention to Lois. LOIS I need you to stay home tonight and watch Bryce. BROCK (not really paying attention) Where are you going to be? LOIS Well you remember that woman, Anne? The one we saw in video store? Well, we started talking to each other over the phone a lot and tonight she is taking me out to dinner. Brock, temporarily, snaps out of it. BROCK You're going on a date? LOIS Yes. BROCK Is that all? LOIS It's a pretty big step, for all of us. I just want to make sure youíre okay with it. BROCK Mom, you don't tell me what kind of girl to choose, and I wonít tell you. Brock goes back to looking towards his room. We suddenly hear the noise again. He gets more anxious. Lois is happy her son has accepted this. She leans in and hugs him. LOIS Call my cell if anything comes up. She leaves. Brock waits until we hear a door close. As soon as he hears this he goes flying out of the room. CUT TO: INT. JENNINGS HOME - LIVING ROOM - SAME Sandra and Mark are seated on the couch, while Kay sits on the arm of Casey's chair. Janice is sitting across from Mark and Sandra on the second couch. SANDRA It was very kind of you to invite us over, Janice. JANICE Oh, it's no problem. MARK It's good to finally meet the young gentleman who my daughter has been seeing all this time. Casey smiles. KAY (quietly) Are you okay? CASEY (quietly) I just took some Prozac. John enters carrying a try of drinks. JOHN Here we go. Drinks for the father, the ghost, and the holy spirit. John starts to laugh, while everyone else is silent. Casey's smile is now gone. JOHN Little religious humor. Mark looks at the beers that have been place in front of him. MARK (about drinks) Um, I hate to be a bother but I'm afraid we can't drink this. JOHN Oh, no man it's cool. It's just this imported shit from Canada. MARK No, I mean we can't drink alcohol. SANDRA In our religion it's looked down upon. Just as she says this Janice is mid-drink, while John has just opened his. They both look at each other and sit their drinks down. JOHN Well, can I get you something else? Soda, perhaps? SANDRA Oh, that'd be lovely. MARK Um, Sandy. It has sugar. SANDRA Oh. On second thought just bring me something that doesn't have sugar or alcohol. John scoffs. JOHN (under breath) Or taste apparently. From her seat, Janice reaches over and kicks him right in the ass. JOHN (big fake smile) Two waters coming up. John leaves the room. JANICE Well, Mark I see that you're a man of God. MARK Oh yes. I've been a minister for nearly twenty years now. SANDRA Ever since I met him he's been destined to do God's work. JANICE That's another thing. I didn't know ministers were allowed to have wives. MARK Well in our faith they allow it. They see no problem in loving a woman and having a family with said woman. JANICE I guess anything is better than a twelve year old altar boy. JOHN Honey, how about a tall smooth glass of shut the fuck up? Casey is breathing harder. KAY Casey is your ulcer acting up again? Casey gives her a "are you kidding?" look and starts to giggle a bit. CUT TO: INT. ELLEN'S APARTMENT - HALLWAY - LATER Will is standing near the kitchen door, which is firmly closed. Suddenly Ellen enters, arms filled with various kinds of incense and a lighter. WILL You own incense? ELLEN Sure, don't all liberals? WILL I know George Carlin's a fan. What kind is it? ELLEN Frankincense. WILL What are you? One of the magi? ELLEN You are a wit. WILL Where did you get this shit? ELLEN Kirk. WILL Where else? Will takes the incense and starts placing them in the small crack at the bottom of the door. ELLEN I think if we just light a few of these the smoke will cause the bat to fly out. WILL All right. Go outside and watch. You said the window in the kitchen is open, so I want you to tell me when it flies out. ELLEN Okay. She leaves. Will takes the lighter and starts lighting some of these incense. He looks to see if Ellen is gone. WILL (talking towards kitchen door) Might I start off by saying...fuck you, Mr. Bat. I finally get enough spine, not a lot mind you, but enough to ask her to go to the movies with me and what happens? You decide to show up and ruin the evening... Suddenly we see a BAT fly and hang in the corner. Will does not notice anything at all and continues to talk to himself and light the incense. WILL (CONT'D) ...Well now it's time for you to leave, compliments of Mr. incense. Will smiles as smoke starts to rise. He laughs before he's interrupted by a loud hissing sound. Will turns around and finally sees the bat in the corner. CUT TO: EXT. ELLEN'S APARTMENT - SECONDS LATER Ellen is standing watching the window when suddenly we hear Will SCREAMING from the top of his lungs. Suddenly Will bursts through the front door and comes running toward Ellen. ELLEN What happened? WILL I thought you said the bat was in the kitchen! ELLEN It was when I got home! WILL Let me give you a brief news update on that: IT'S NOT ANYMORE! Ellen sniffs the air. ELLEN Did you light the incense? WILL Yeah, why? Suddenly we can see a giant FLAME arise through her windows. WILL Oh, that's right. I forgot to put them out. ELLEN Well go back in and do it! WILL A raging fire and a pissed off bat? Not a real pleasing deal there, Ellen. ELLEN Someone has to stop the fire! CUT TO: INT. HOUSE - SAME JOSEPH SAID, the foreign exchange student, is sitting on the couch watching TV. KIRK is on the floor, sleeping. Suddenly Kirk quickly sits up and starts sniffing the air. Joseph notices this. JOSEPH What is it boy? Is Timmy stuck in a well? Kirk takes a deep breath. KIRK (excited) Pot! Kirk goes running out of the house, with Joseph right behind him. CUT TO: EXT. STREET - MINUTES LATER Joseph and Kirk are running for their lives. Kirk seems very happy. CUT TO: EXT. ELLEN'S APARTMENT - MINUTES LATER Will and Ellen are just putting out the fire with buckets of water when Kirk and Joseph come running up. KIRK Will! I smelt pot an - WILL It was incense, Kirk. Sorry. Kirk and Joseph seem very disappointed. They hang their heads down and begin to walk away. ELLEN (sarcastically) Oh but by all means don't try to help us put the fire out! The two continue to walk away. CUT TO: INT. FANCY RESTAURANT - SAME Lois and ANNE BAXTER, 49, a woman with short salt and pepper hair, sit at a table in an intimate section of a nice restaurant waiting for their food. Lois seems tense and nervous sitting in the middle of the restaurant. LOIS Dinner was a good idea. ANNE Well I try to eat it every night. They giggle and then try to think of something to say. ANNE (CONT'D) So, how are your boys doing? LOIS Great! Yeah Bryce is enjoying the eighth grade and Brock is...as happy as ever...I think. ANNE That's Good. Yeah, my Allison is away at Northwestern. LOIS Wow, good job. ANNE Yeah, all credit to her, I can hardly divide and sheís becoming a microchemical engineer. LOIS Well someone had to give her those brains. ANNE Yeah, I think Peter did most of that. He was brilliant. What about your sonsí father? LOIS Um. It's been so long. ANNE Are they like him? LOIS Bryce not so much. Brock... sometimes more I realize. Good heart, noble. Lois pauses. ANNE Oh, Iím sorry. Bad subject for a first date. LOIS No, itís fine. I wouldnít have them without Daniel. The WAITER brings them their main course. ANNE Thank you. Anne starts eating. LOIS It was very difficult back then, wasnít it? ANNE What was? LOIS Being a gay mom, back in the eighties...Being a gay anything. ANNE Yeah, but now, it seems so normal. I mean, there must be tens of thousands of families like ours and the world is still turning. Lois has relaxed a lot and begins to enjoy the company of Anne. LOIS You know, it may sound silly, but I donít think my children are any more messed up then they would be if they were raised by straight parents. ANNE Mine either. They laugh. ANNE (CONT'D) More wine? LOIS Please! Anne pours they enjoy the moment. SLOWLY FADE TO: INT. JENNINGS HOME - KITCHEN - LATER John and Janice enter, laughing. But the second the door closes, they immediately stop. JOHN I don't know how much more I can take of this. JANICE Jesus this, Jesus that. Can't they just talk about what happened on "House" last night like normal people? JOHN Now, honey. I know this is tough. But we've got to stomach their bullshit for just a wee bit longer. JANICE But - JOHN Our son wants us to be on our best behavior. We've got to show these people that we're civilized and sophisticated. (pause) Now where's the Twinkies and cheese whiz? I was going to make our guests dessert. CUT TO: INT. JENNINGS HOME - DINNING ROOM - MINUTES LATER John and Janice reenter. Mark, Sandra, Casey, and Kay are all laughing it up. JANICE What did we miss? MARK I'm just explaining the afterlife to Casey, here. She's about to say something, but a look from John stops her. They sit down. MARK Now, son. People aren't sure exactly what happens to us when we die. But since I'm a man of God I'd like to think I know a bit more then normal people. JANICE You pretentious son of - JOHN Here, honey. Have some bread. He takes a roll and stuffs it in her mouth. MARK See in hell you have to pay for everything you've done wrong in your life. You know abortion, gay marriage, the usual stuff. But in heaven you're rewarded for living a good life and believing in God. You get to spend eternity in complete happiness. Just you and other Christians. Pause. Janice has had enough. JANICE We don't exactly know what happens in the afterlife. MARK Well, it does say in the Bible. KAY And in many other religious texts as well, daddy. JANICE You know, some people believe that since god is supposed to be forgiving that hell is temporary until you paid for your misdeeds, and then you go to limbo for a while, and then to heaven. SANDRA (correcting) I think you meant to say "You've paid." Janice gives her a look. MARK (chuckles) There's no limbo. Well, of course, unless you're catholic. Now John seems ready to jump in. JOHN Well, there is no god unless your religious. JANICE Like I said, some people believe that and personally, I don't believe that God is vengeful. I think that you might get out of hell in some way depending on what you did wrong in life. SANDRA He did helped wage wars is Biblical times. That's a bit vengeful. JANICE (while coughing) Pride in vengefulness. JOHN Then how do you explain Jesus? Is he just the forgiving Jew? JANICE (laughs) Forgiving Jew. I like that. Janice and John are chuckling about their comment. While Mark and Sandra seem offended. John and Janice quickly become quiet. SANDRA He wasn't sent to earth to hurt people or go against them. JANICE Wow you've really read deep into the life of Jesus. I think that a point such as that is obvious to the most illiterate starving bum on the corner of Petchakasem in Thailand. Sandra gasps. MARK He didn't know revenge! He knew love! JOHN He knew forgiveness! He said it himself that you should forgive those who do you wrong. so why should Jesus preach what god isn't if he isn't forgiving? MARK (frustrated) I didn't say he didn't know forgiveness. JANICE No you didn't and that's why my husband pointed it out. MARK I said he didn't know revenge...But you have to ask for forgiveness its not free. JOHN Wait! So it does cost money? JANICE (snaps fingers) I knew that those damn donations had to have some purpose. SANDRA You know technically, if you don't believe in God then you go to hell. John and Janice give each other a look. MARK The bottom line is, if you ask for forgiveness then you to go Heaven. JANICE What about with certain circumstances? Can you get out of hell then? MARK Nope. SANDRA You don't just get out of hell. That's why its called Eternal Damnation. JOHN So if you believed in God and did things wrong in your life you go to hell forever? SANDRA You can't go to hell and change your mind and ask God to get into Heaven. MARK If you believe in God then you go to Heaven, but if you believe in God then you know you have to ask Forgiveness. Long pause. JANICE Oh, that's bullshit. I've known some of the most awful people and they were very strong Christians. So because they knew to ask for forgiveness they could go to heaven? MARK (without hesitation) Yes. JOHN Why should someone who knows that they are doing something wrong go there? SANDRA You shouldn't call someone else's opinion bullshit. I didn't put yours down. JOHN That is because what is being expressed is a lack of belief and since it is not possible to call nothingness bullshit you never had the chance. Pause. JANICE We're sorry. We just got a bit excited. MARK You've done things wrong haven't you? CASEY (to himself) Oh crap. Here it comes... rationalization of guilt. These guys pull it every time. MARK And you knew they were wrong. Well do you think you deserve to go to Heaven? (Pause) If God is forgiving then he will give you eternal life if you go before him and ask forgiveness. It's not that complicated. Pause. JANICE Let me put it this way. You can do something wrong and be like "Oh I messed up, I'll try my best not to do it again" and then you should be forgiven. or there are people who do things wrong such as stealing over and over again without remorse until they pray for forgiveness. And the next day the do it again. Should those people rightly go to heaven even though they know what they are doing is wrong. Pause. Mark seems stumped. MARK Um...yes! All four parents continue to fight, while Casey gets up and leaves. Kay follows. CASEY I think we need some air. KAY Yeah...I think you're right. They leave the room. CUT TO: EXT. ELLEN'S APARTMENT - LATER Will and Ellen are standing outside of the apartment. This time they have made a large line of FRUIT that leads from the apartment to the outside to lure the bat out. Will is looking bored out of his mind, while Ellen are gone back to reading her book. WILL I thought for sure this would work. ELLEN Where did you get an idea like this anyway? WILL Screech used it in an episode of "Saved by the Bell." ELLEN Ah. Pause. ELLEN Maybe it's a vampire bat. Will gives her a look, as she struggles not to laugh. ELLEN If that's the case all we have to do is open a vain. Will just shakes his head. Ellen starts to laugh. ELLEN Oh come on. You know that was funny. WILL Ellen, I give up. We're just going to have to call some professional or wait for your mom. ELLEN (sighing) If we have to. WILL I'm going around to get the fruit from the front yard. ELLEN Okay. Will begins to walk away. Ellen, who seems defeated takes a few steps toward her house. Suddenly her cat, ironically named CAT, appears and rubs up against her leg. ELLEN Hey, baby. They cat then walks over and starts drinking from a milk saucer. Then suddenly the BAT flies out and hangs on the roof exactly above Cat. Ellen sees this and is terrified. The bat starts to make loud hissing sounds like itís about to drive bomb cat. Without even thinking twice Ellen HURLS her book, nailing the bat causing it to slam up against the wall. Pause. Will comes running from the front. WILL What happened? ELLEN The bat decided it wanted to dive bomb my cat so I decided to introduce to my hardback copy of Alice Hoffman. WILL Ew. ELLEN I know there's guts everywhere. WILL Actually it was about the book. You read Alice Hoffman? Ellen goes over and slowly picks up the book, making sure not to get guts on her. WILL Whatever happened to you not wanting to hurt the bat? ELLEN Cats outranks bat. The little vermin had it coming. Will begins to examine the dead bat. WILL Well, don't worry. I think the hard concrete ground broke it's fall. CUT TO: EXT. WARNER HOUSE - SAME Anne's truck pulls up in the driveway and parks. INT. ANNE'S TRUCK - CONTINUOUS Anne and Lois look at each other and smile. Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" comes on the radio. LOIS I had a wonderful time tonight. ANNE Me too. I saw you and Brock come in last week and I noticed how good you looked. LOIS Thank you. ANNE I like you a lot. LOIS I'm getting to like you. Maybe we could do this again, sometime. ANNE I'd love that. I'll call you. LOIS Great. Lois picks up her purse from the floor of the car and leans close to Anne. Anne takes the opportunity and moves and kisses her. They pull apart. LOIS (CONT'D) (a little flustered) Thank you. Lois tries to open the door, but canít. ANNE Sorry, locked. She unlocks it. LOIS One more time. They kiss again and after Lois opens the door and steps out of the truck. EXT. WARNER HOUSE - CONTINUOUS Lois walks over to the front door and waves to Anne as she pulls out of the driveway and waves back. Lois doesn't go inside right away, she leans back on the door and looks very happy. We PAN over to Brock's window and see him furiously looking for something online. BROCK C'mon, c'mon. Where the hell did she go! CUT TO: EXT. JENNINGS HOME - PORCH - LATER Casey and Kay are sitting on the swing together. Casey is resting his head on her chest, while she strokes his hair. We can hear screaming coming from inside the house. After a few seconds Casey and Kay begin to look into each other's eyes. They do this for a long time before briefly kissing. CASEY If I don't see you for a while after tonight...I love you. KAY Casey we're going to see each other again. So our parents don't get along. That shouldn't stop us. They kiss again. Casey rests his head again. Suddenly the front door BUSTS open and Sandra comes running out holding her ears. SANDRA Oh god! Make them stop with their blasphemy! She walks over and gets in the car. Mark now storms out of the house. MARK You people are crazy! John and Janice slowly come out. Unlike Mark and Sandra they are very relaxed and even smiling. JOHN Hey, buddy. What has four thumbs and thinks you should go fuck yourself? John and Janice then point to themselves with their thumbs. JOHN John and Janice Jennings. Mark grabs Kay and starts to take her toward the car. MARK C'mon, Kay. We're leaving. Mark forces Kay into the car. MARK From now on, keep your son and your ridiculous views away from my family! Mark gets in the driver's side. Casey looks devastated. John and Janice now seem to regretting what they've done. JANICE Son...I'm sorry that prick banned you from seeing Kay again. Pause. CASEY Well on the bright side he has yet to hurt me physically. Mark quickly backs out of the driveway, nailing Casey's scooter. When Mark drives away we can see the Scooter is totaled. CASEY That's it! First he takes my first love away and now he just ran over my second. Well now I've got nothing to lose... (thinks) Except for my family... (thinks) Oh, and my friends... (thinks) And Hot Pockets! Can't forget about Hot Pockets. Anyway the point is when I'm done he's going to be one sorry Mormon...or Catholic. Whatever his religion is. I'm going to see her...no matter what it takes. FADE OUT. END OF EPISODE 29
