TONY ESPINO CHARLIE BROWN:FURY ROAD V1.1 ORIGINAL DRAFT
INT. CAR – DAY
CHARLIE BROWN is driving, LUCY is riding shotgun.
Thanks for picking me up, Charlie
No problem, Lucy.
Hey, Charlie Brown?
Is this another one of your crazy
Snap out of it, stupid. I’m
That’s really weird, Lucy. Are you
trying to tell me it’s mine?
Well, it’s certainly not Pig-Pen’s.
Good grief. How could this happen?
Don’t be so dumb, Charlie Brown.
Apparently you don’t know the first
thing about safe sex.
I thought it was safe. It was
behind a brick wall.
If it’s a boy we can name him
My name’s Charlie Brown. My world
is fire. And blood.
No it’s not! You’re world’s not
fire and blood. We’re having a
baby! It’s gonna be so ugly.
I’m a Peanut not a father.
There’s no going back. Wait. Why
are you driving through the desert
You gotta have an abortion, Lucy. I
know a guy. Don’t worry he’s the
conductor of the choir of death.
He’ll take good care of you.
Have you done this before?
But I think I want to keep it,
I am the one that runs from both
the living and the dead. Hunted by
fetuses, haunted by penises I could
not protect. So I exist in this

Charlie Brown! You! You make me
There’s that voice again worming

No I’m not.
Really? Then why is Linus strapped
to the front of your car.
That’s not weird. He’s
He’s my brother! And do you have
any idea why all these cars are
suddenly shooting at us?
They’re pro-lifers, Lucy,
surrounding the abortion clinic.
You sure are stupid, Charlie Brown.
I’m not having an abortion. How’s
it feel knowing I want to keep it?
That’s life, Chuck. Everything
hurts. You wanna get through this?
Do as I say. Turn this car around
and find me some ice cream.
All right. This is your way home.
You didn’t even turn the car
It’s my seed, Lucy. I should be
able to drown it, or do whatever I
want to it.
Are you complaining again?
I gotta jump out of the car and
take out this motorcycle behind us.
What about me and your unborn
You’re going to crash into that War
Rig and die. Sorry.
It doesn’t have to be this way you
Witness me, Lucy! Witness!
Charlie Brown gets ready to jump, but Lucy stops him.
Wait! In case I live, what do I
I live! I die! I live again!
He jumps out of the car and dies because he’s Charlie Brown.
Lucy slides into the driver’s seat and grabs the wheel.
Oh of all the Charlie Browns in the
world. You sure are the Charlie
