INT. OFFICE - NEXT DAY Last edited by RTV300TA, on 10/20/2009. 0 comments. More scene info.

Steve is leaving the office and bumps into Mike by the doors. Mike is flirting with KATHY.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Mike

Hey, Steve.  I didn't see you around the office today.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Yeah, I had a meeting with some of the higher ups down at head office today; I just got back in about an hour ago.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Mike

You run into our friend at all today?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Nope, thankfully no pranks today.  I guess he's waiting a few days before he tries something again.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Mike

Looks like it.  Wanna go grab a drink to celebrate a prank-free day?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

No thanks, man.  I'm pretty tired.  I think I'm just gonna head home and turn in early.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Mike

Alright, dude.  See you tomorrow.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Later.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

INT. HOUSE - NIGHT

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

No fucking way!

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

He sees a piece of paper on the floor and picks it up.  He reads it aloud.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

STEVE CoNt.

"Got you again.  I really thought that this would be more of a challenge."

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

He crumples up the letter and throws it to the ground.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

STEVE CoNt. (CONT'D)

This has gone way to far.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve takes his laptop out of his briefcase and begins typing an e-mail.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

STEVE CoNt. (CONT'D)

This whole thing has gotten way out of hand. Harmless pranks are one thing, but you crossed the line by trashing my place.  I'm putting an end to this whole thing right now.  Try anything else and I'm calling the cops.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve picks up the couch cushions of his floor and puts them back onto his couch.  He then lies down on the couch and goes to sleep.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve sits at his desk and checks his e-mail.  There is one from his nemesis, and he opens it up.  It reads: "The only way this is going to end is when I kill you."  After he reads this, he grabs his face, and looks noticeably upset.  Chris then enters the office.

INT. OFFICE - DAY

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

Hey, Steve.  Have you seen...what's wrong?  You look like a wreck.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

STEVE

I am a wreck, Chris.  I think someone's gonna try to kill me.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

What?  You can't be serious.  Why would someone want to kill you?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Never mind.  It's a long story.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

C'mon, man, I've got time.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

You're gonna think this is stupid, but...it all started on Monday morning.  I was complaining about how boring my life was to Mike, and he suggested that I was bored because everyone liked me too much for me to have any enemies.  So, we ended up looking for an enemy for me on Craig's List.  Someone else who was bored, to have a bit of a prank war with.  We found a guy, and things were going fine at first, but then he turned out to be a psycho.  He trashed my place, and now he's threatening to kill me.  To make things worse, I've never even seen him so I don't know who to look out for.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

Damn, that's a pretty messed up situation you got yourself into.  Just a quick question though.  Was it your idea, or Mike's, to look for an enemy on Craig's List?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Mike's. why?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009 2 versions.

Chris

Well, the thing you said about not having any enemies isn't exactly true.  I think Mike was pretty upset that you got that last promotion instead of him.  Ever since then he's been bad mouthing you to anyone that'll listen.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

No way.  Your just messing with me...right?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

What reason would I have to lie?  I'm guessing that if this whole thing was Mike's idea, he's probably been the one screwing with you this whole time.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Of course!  How could I have been so blind?  Who else would've been able to prank me at the office without me noticing?  And he could've gone and trashed my house at anytime yesterday; I wasn't at the office, so I wouldn't have seen him step out for an hour or two.  I am gonna fuck that bastard up!  Have you seen him around today?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

Nope.  Why don't you try Kathy in H.R., she'd probably know where he is.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Good idea, Chris.  Thanks.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Kathy

Hello, Steve.  What can I do for you?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Have you seen that prick, Mike, today?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Kathy

...No.  He left a message this morning saying he was sick and wouldn't be able to make it into the office..

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Unless being an asshole has suddenly become an illness, I don't think he's sick...never mind, I'm sure he's actually sick.  In fact, I think I'll go see how he's doing.  Thanks, Kathy.  I'll be taking the afternoon off.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve storms out of the office.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

EXT. HOUSE - AFTERNOON

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve pulls up into Mike's driveway and gets out of his car.  He walks up to Mike's front door.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Hey, Mike!  I'm coming for you, you stupid bastard!

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve goes to pound on Mike's door, but finds that it's slightly open.  He opens the door the rest of the way and walks into the house.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

INT. HOUSE - AFTERNOON

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Mike...?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Walking slowly, Steve moves deeper into the house until he finds Mike's body on the floor, lying in a pool of blood.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

STEVE CoNt.

Holy shit!

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Just then, Steve is hit from behind by a mysterious figure and falls into unconsciousness.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

INT. DARK ROOM - UNKNOWN

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve is in a dark room, tied to a chair.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

STEVE (INTERNAL MONOLOGU

So here I am.  Trapped by an unknown psychopath in a dark room, with no clue as to who he is and no way out.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

A dark figure enters the room.  When he steps out of the shadows, we can see that it is Chris.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

...Chris?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

Try not to look so shocked, Steve.  You know, Mike also had that same stupid look on his face before I killed him.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

You killed Mike?  But, why?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

Why?!  You can't be serious.  That jerk had made my work life a living hell ever since he started working with me...always insulting me and threatening me.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

But, why do you want to kill me?  I've never done anything to you.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

Sorry, Steve.  It's not so much that I want to kill you, it's that I have to kill you.  I overheard you and Mike talking about your stupid Craig's List idea on Monday, and I realized that it'd be the perfect opportunity for me to finally kill Mike and get away with it, by framing you for the murder.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

How're you gonna pin this on me?  You'll never get away with it.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

I disagree.  When the cops find Mike's body, they'll come to the office asking questions.  When they get to me, I'll inform them that you guys had been having a little prank war that may have gotten out of hand.  When they get to Kathy, she'll inform them that you were looking for Mike today and angrily stormed out of the office to go to his place.  After these damning interviews, the cops will start looking for you.  The first place they'll go is your house, where I'll have already packed away some of your clothes and personal effects.  They'll assume that you're on the run and start a man hunt for you.  But they won't ever find you because I will have disposed of your body long before the man hunt ever begins.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Why are you telling me all this?  Why haven't you just killed me already?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

Now, now, what kind of nemesis would I be if I didn't explain my master plan to you before I killed you?  Not a very good one.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

You're fucking crazy!  You know that, right?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

Probably, yeah.  But at least I'm gonna be breathing past four o'clock today.  Anyway, don't go anywhere.  I'm gonna go grab my chainsaw.  Be back in a flash.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris exits the room.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

Fuck!  How am I gonna get out of here?...I've got it, Mike's knife!  How could I be so dumb?

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve moves his hands toward his back pocket and pulls out the pocket knife that Mike had given him on Monday.  He cuts the ropes that are tying his hands together and unties his legs.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

STEVE CoNt.

Something heavy...need something heavy...

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve looks around the room and finds some old free weights.  He picks one up and then hides against the wall.  Chris walks through the door, carrying a chainsaw.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Chris

Alright, here I...

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve comes up behind him and hits him in the back of the head with the weight.  Chris falls to the floor, unconscious.

RTV300TA - on 10/20/2009

Steve

I'll never complain about my life being boring again.
