Dialogue script

EXT. APARTMENT COMPLEX

Establishing shot

INT. APARTMENT

A young guy, let’s call him COMRADE, is relaxing on his couch playing a handheld game. 

Our main guy, let’s call him GUY, slumps up the stairs and leans his head over the railing morosely.

GUY

Sighhh….

Comrade pays no mind

GUY

(louder)

SIIIIIIGHHH

COMRADE

Yyyyyes?

GUY

Aw nothing, I just REALLY wanted to go to a show tonight but I don’t have the cash. 

COMRADE

Ah, well. That sucks.

Are there any more “shows” coming up soon?

GUY

Yeah, duh! but in like THREE WEEKS.

And like a TOTALLY different show, so it TOTALLY doesn’t even matter

COMRADE

(shrugs)

Who knows?

Maybe by then your luck will have changed.

GUY

Yeah…change…

change…

change?!

A light suddenly shines on Guy

He runs and jumps on the couch

GUY

Quick!

Do you have any change? like spare change lying around?!

COMRADE

Sure, why?

GUY

I need it!

Can I please have some?!

COMRADE

Yeah, just

(pauses game)

Hold on…

CUT TO:

POV

Inside of closet

The closet opens and there, illuminated in the center, is a large clear jar filled with coins

Guy gasps and grabs it, starts running out the door

COMRADE

What are you doing?!

GUY

Here, come on let’s go! I’ll pay you back, don’t ask any questions!

EXT. PERFORMANCE CENTER

Illuminated establishing shot, Night.

INT. PERFORMANCE CENTER

A classical musical piece begins 

EXT. STREET

Meanwhile, the two friends buckle up and drive

EXT. and INT. WAL-MART

They arrive at Wal-Mart, run inside to the Coin-Star machine

Quick shots of them turning in their money are interspersed with coverage from the Performance at the Performance Center

After getting their Cash, the friends hurry to the Performance Center, hop out of the car and run

As the musical piece crescendos, they reach the doors, only to find the show is sold out and they themselves are locked out

There is applause from within the Performance Center, yet our protagonists fall to the wayside, out of breath, defeated.

GUY

You know…now that I think about it…

I bet you they would have accepted Debit.

Comrade slowly turns and stares Guy down.

CUT TO BLACK.
