Brainfreeze

TONY ESPINO BRAINFREEZE V1.1 ORIGINAL DRAFT 6/19/15

INT. LIVING ROOM

LUCY and JACK are watching tv. Jack is eating a giant bowl of
ice cream.

LUCY
Are you sure you can see the
television over that mountain of
ice cream you’re eating?

JACK
Doesn’t matter. They’re all dead on
that island anyway.

Jack takes a big bite of ice cream and winces in pain.

JACK (CONT’D)
I did it again, Lucy. It’s a good
one this time.

LUCY
Another brainfreeze, Jack?

JACK
Oh yeah. Wow. This one is really
digging in deep. You should call
someone.

LUCY
We’re in the middle of our show. It
can wait.

JACK
I’m telling you they’re all dead on
that island. Call Dr. Otto quick.

LUCY
I’m not going to bother Dr. Otto at
this hour.

She picks up her phone and begins dialing.

JACK
Tell Dr. Otto he has to come here.
We can’t go there. I won’t make it.

LUCY
(on phone)
Hi, ice cream company I have a
complaint and a suggestion. My
suggestion is warning labels.

JACK
Hang up. They suck.

LUCY
(on phone)
My complaint is that my husband’s
brain has frozen again. Would you
believe it?

JACK
I’m losing touch with reality. You
need to get me help.

LUCY
(on phone)
Sure I have time for a quick
survey.

Jack runs and smashes his head through the television.

LUCY (CONT’D)
Jack, how are we supposed to finish
our show when you put your head
through the tv?

JACK
They just told me they were all
dead when my head was in there. Now call Dr. Otto.

LUCY
Let me call the tv guy first and
see what he says.

JACK
I need medical attention, Lucy.

LUCY
I’m sure the tv guy deals with this
all the time.

Jack bangs on his head.

JACK
It’s frozen solid. Call Dr. Otto.
I’m gonna go stick my head in the
oven to thaw it out.

Jack walks toward the kitchen and Lucy begins dialing.

LUCY
I’m going to call him right now!

JACK
Thank you!

LUCY
Right after I get off the phone
with the oven guy.

BLACKOUT.
