TONY ESPINO GURU V1.1 ORIGINAL DRAFT 6/5/15

INT. HOSPITAL ROOM – DAY

A spiritual GURU is lying in a hospital bed dying. His two
most faithful devotees, ELROY and OLIVE, are by his side.

GURU
These are my final moments. You two
have been the most faithful of all
my followers.

ELROY
You’ve taught us so much.

OLIVE
I didn’t know how to live until I
met you.

GURU
I must leave this Earth soon. But
it is up to you to carry on my
teachings so that new minds may
continue to blossom.

ELROY
Of course, holy one.

OLIVE
Anything for our beloved Guru.

GURU
In the drawer next to me is my
autobiography. I would like it
released after my death.

OLIVE
That’s amazing.

GURU
However, the end is incomplete.
Finish what I have started. Write
my ending.

ELROY
We would love to.

OLIVE
It would be an amazing honor.

GURU
Most importantly make sure you
include my final words.

ELROY
We promise.

GURU
These words are what will end my
life’s story. And shall be the last
thing I’m remembered by. My final
message and the most important one
of all.

OLIVE
We will write them word for word.
Promise.

GURU
I must be going now. Peace and
love. Peace and love.

Guru quickly passes out.

OLIVE
No!

ELROY
It was so sudden. I guess we have
to write down his final words.

Elroy removes a large notebook from the drawer. He tries to
write but can’t stop shaking.

ELROY (CONT’D)
I can’t even write. I’m shaking too
much.

OLIVE
Here, let me do it.

Elroy tries to hand the notebook to Olive, but accidentally
drops it on the Guru’s crotch.

GURU
Ow! My fucking nuts!

The Guru dies. His heart monitor flatlines and begins
beeping. Olive picks up the notebook and looks at Elroy.

OLIVE
We did make a promise.

BLACKOUT.
