Papercut

TONY ESPINO PAPER CUT V1.1 ORIGINAL DRAFT 6/22/15

EXT. STREET CORNER – DAY

CARL is walking down the street when he bumps into SHEILA.
Her shirt is covered in blood with a few drops on her pants.

CARL
Hey Sheila, how’s it going? Where’s
all this blood from?

SHEILA
Relax it’s just a paper cut.

CARL
That’s like a lot of blood for a
paper cut. Was there a knife
attached to it?

SHEILA
It’s just in a bad spot.

CARL
Well, where is it?

SHEILA
There’s so much blood everywhere I
forget now.

CARL
We should try to find it before you
die.

SHEILA
I think it might be on my toe
webbings.

Sheila and Carl examine her feet.

CARL
It’s just all blood and toejam.

SHEILA
Look harder.

CARL
Wait. Why would you be picking up
papers with your toes?

SHEILA
Right! My hands. I always use hands
for paper touching.

Carl grabs her hands and looks at them.

CARL
Don’t worry, I’ll find it.

He wipes the blood off her hands.

CARL (CONT’D)
There it is. I found it.

SHEILA
See. I told you I had a paper cut.

CARL
But it’s not bleeding.

SHEILA
Well, not anymore.

CARL
You lost like all your blood. We
should get you to a hospital. I
mean your shirt is definitely
ruined too.

SHEILA
Oh this?

Looks at her shirt.

SHEILA (CONT’D)
I had to shoot my horse today and I
stood too close.

CARL
You said that blood was from a
paper cut!

SHEILA
I thought you were talking about
the blood on my pants.

CARL
Let’s try this again. Did you shoot
a horse today?

SHEILA
Yeah. I got a paper cut too. Bled
like a pig. Want to see?

BLACKOUT.
