INT. JACK’S ONE BEDROOM APARTMENT – EARLY MORNING

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

An alarm clock RINGING LOUDLY as the camera makes its way to the bedside. It wakes up a disgruntled and very different in appearance JACK GALLOWS. He has longer hair and seems to be as much of a mess as his apartment is. Dirty clothes and dishes are everywhere. Piles of what appears to be scripts or story ideas are stacked almost 3 feet tall. He rolls over and looks at his clock which reads 9:45 AM.

(Jumping Up) Shit!

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

JACK quickly stands up and attempts to gather himself when he hears a SIZZLING and begins to WHIFF the air with his nose. He turns his head around the corner to see AL, his portly neighbor, standing over his stove cooking breakfast.

al

(LOOKING DOWN AT THE FRYING PAN, STIRRING WITH THE SPATULA) Good morning neighbor! Do you likes your eggs scrambled or over easy?

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

I like my eggs in my refrigerator where they belong. How did you even get in here?

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

al

I used my spare key.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

When did I give you a spare key?

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

al

You didn’t but sometimes you gotta take the prerogative in order to bring a friendship to the next level.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

(BEGINS SCRAMBLING TO GET READY TO LEAVE) Whatever I’m gunna be late. Next time make sure the prerogative is waking me up when my alarm clock is ringing.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

al

(SMILING AND HOLDING SPATULA CLOSE TO CHEST MOCKINGLY) You know I don’t believe in ruining dreams, plus you’re so cute when you’re asleep.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

Shut up Al! And lock up when you leave I’ll be back in a little bit.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

al

You need to eat!

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

(RUSHING TO THE FRONT DOOR) I need to be downtown in 15 minutes if I ever plan on having money to eat again!

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012 2 versions.

JACK grabs a couple things and begins to hurry out the door. AL holds out a slice of toast and a cup of coffee.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

al

Good luck buddy, knock ‘em dead!

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

(LAUGHING) Thanks Al, sometimes I don’t know what I do without you.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

al

Probably die a lonely and miserable writer from malnutrition that would so strategically be considered honorable amongst your type, writer’s block and broken hearts, poetic justice, so cliché, I love it!

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

(CONFUSED BUT IMPRESSED) Right?

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

JACK steps out and shuts the door behind him, while AL stands in the kitchen LAUGHING to himself.

INT. AGENT’S OFFICE IN LOS ANGELES – LATE MORNING

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

JACK swings open the door to MICHAEL ROLFSTEIN’S office, his agent. He is out of breathe and looking scraggly. He quickly sits down and attempts to straighten up. ROLFSTEIN continues to look down at the script he is reading and does not acknowledge Jack’s presence the least bit. When he finishes the last page he clears his throat, looks at the clock, and then at JACK who is sitting before him searching for an excuse.

jack

I know what your thinking MR. ROLFSTEIN, but there was so much traffic and it was hard to sleep last night, I was so excited to sit down and start talking about maybe starting to send some of my scripts to some directors or maybe even…

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

agent Rolfstein

(AS JACK CONTNUES TO SPEAK) You’re late, again.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

I know sir, but…

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

agent rolfstein

(HOLDING HAND UP TO HUSH JACK) I am not interested in hearing a story from you; you’re supposed to be a writer, so write them.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

Sorry sir won’t happen again.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

agent Rolfstein

You’re right Jack it won’t happen again, that’s actually the reason I called you in here today. They’re pulling the program.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

There have only been two episodes, that’s not even an hour of…

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

agent rolfstein

Its done Jack we’re going to have to look into getting you back on “Jo-Jo and his Jungle Pals”.

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

jack

(UPSET) Come on Mike, you know how degrading that is? I mean I don’t even write I proofread! You told me if I worked hard you’d get me onto a hit series and I’ll eventually be looked at as a screenwriter and I’d be able to work on real movies. I mean what if I refuse?

ntrillo88 - on 04/13/2012

ROLFSTEIN looks at JACK with an amusing smile
