THE WHITE PAPER FAN

FADE IN:

INT. THE ZEN CAFE - NIGHT
                                                            
It's 11:15 pm- the resturaunt is nearly closed, a few
patrons linger as they pay their bill and a few sit at the
bar nursing their drinks and conversate with the bartender.
The camera follows an older , well dressed gentleman as he
makes his way past the bar to the back of the restaurant
towards the kitchen. He obviously has some sort of
importance, as he is acknowledged but only slightly as he
strolls through the establishment. He is greeted by SAM the
manager of the bar they converse in Cantonese while walking
through the kitchen.
                                                            
                       SAM
      (translated)
It is a pleasure to see you Biming
Chao. It is an honor to have you.
                                                            
                       BIMING
      (translated)
yes, thank you. has everything
been arranged, are the games
running?
                                                            
                       SAM
yes, they have been running for
the last few months now and we
have turned a good profit, minus
the tributes of course. We are
happy you are in charge of this
endeavor.How are things at Club
Genkii? I hear you are remodeling
and gearing up for another
re-open.
                                                            
                       BIMING
the club is doing quite well. I
have Roamn handling the day to day
and I look to have the biggest
year of profits since opening five
years ago.
                                                            
                       SAM
May Buhdda bring you great
fortune.
                                                            
SAM and BIMING make their way through the kitchen, into the
freezer and past all the frozen goods to a hidden door

2.

behind several crates. SAM enters a code and the door opens
to a flight of stairs- they make their way down and to a
large underground room, filled with illegal gambling, shady
characters, and with very scandal clad women serving drinks
and karaoke going on in the background-the visual is
something like the Cantina Bar in Star Wars, but Asian.
                                                            
SAME ushers BIMING to a table where a game of poker is
taking place, he is given three racks of chips and a
cocktail waitress takes his drink order. The other players
are sketchy looking at best, but it does not bother BIMING,
he has the face of someone that almost welcomes being in
such company.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER#1
Finally! Some fresh blood! I've
been running like complete shit!
hopefully this old man changes up
the cards.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER #3
Jesus man, the way you have been
playing the cards can fall from
Heaven, and you would STILL lose.
You're horrible.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER#1
What the fuck did you just say to
me?! Do you want me to crack your
fuc---
                                                            
Player # 3 reaches into his coat and slams a .45 caliber gun
on the table. No one at the table, including BIMING,
flinches.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER #3
      (smirking)
I'm sorry. Did I interrupt you?
You were saying?
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER#1
Nothing.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER #3
Yeah. That's what I fucking
though. Let's play some cards.
                                                            
As the night progresses the gambling den slowly starts to
decrease in patrons, the karaoke eventually shuts down, the
room full of girls turns dwindles slowly as do the tables,
leaving only one table left with a few lookers on.
                                                            

3.

Each player has a sizable amount of chips, BIMING has around
$160k, PLAYER #1 has 170k, PLAYER#2 has $300k, and PLAYER
#3(the roughest of the bunch) has the chip lead with over
$500k. The cards are deal and antes are put in.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER #3
Raise, $25,000.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER # 2
fold.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER#1
I want to call you so bad, but I
just can't chase, I'm out.
                                                            
                       BIMING
raise. $75,000
                                                            
A small gasp can be heard from the onlookers, BIMING has
been getting beat down all night-bad beat after bad beat,
this is his chance to try and recoup some of his losses. The
camera swings around to the back of BIMING- his hand is
revealed as the Ace of Hearts, and the Ace of Clubs. The
flop is the Ace of Spades, 10 of Spades, and the Ace of
Diamonds.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER #3
I see someone will not go out
without a fight tonight.
                                                            
BIMING stays stonefaced. No tell is revealed. PLAYER #3
contemplates, looks at his hand, looks at the dealer and
then to the flop.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
You're a little low on chips my
friend. on top of that, you've
been losing all night, you think
your Aces are going to hold up?
                                                            
BIMING remains silent.
                                                            
The onlookers whisper to themselves, a tall oddly attractive
woman walks through the crowd with a table tray and grazes
the dealer as she walks by, putting her hand on the dealer's
right shoulder to maintain balance.
                                                            
                       WAITRESS
Thank you, I almost hit the deck.
                                                            
The DEALER gives the slightest of nods in acknowledgement,
but does not speak.
                                                            

4.

                       POKER PLAYER #3
Can you please make sure the help
stays out of the fucking way? I am
trying to take this man's money. I
re-raise, actually....I am ALL IN.
                                                            
BIMING's expression changes ever so slightly.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER #3
THERE it is. Every man has one.
                                                            
                       BIMING
You have me at a disadvantage, I
do not have the sufficient amount
of funds to call you.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER #3
That is unfortunate.
                                                            
PLAYER #3 starts to reach for the pot, BIMING grabs his
wrist. PLAYER #3 is surprised at how strong the older
gentleman is and struggles to free himself.
                                                            
                       BIMING
      (poor asain accent)
So sorry.
                                                            
BIMING holds up a hand and motions on of the lookers on to
come to the table and whispers in his ear. The person
quickly leaves the table and goes off screen. Minutes later
he comes back with a VERY LARGE and intimidating looking
gentleman who is obviously the muscle in case things go awry
or a marker is needed to cover a bet.
                                                            
                       POKER PLAYER #3
OOKI? Now THIS is a fascinating
turn of events, I only see you
when there is about to be
                                                            
 
EXT. BLACK SPORTS CAR - DAY
                                                            
A car gently moves down Peachtree street on a bright sunny
day in Atlanta,GA. Two men: Roman (30), and K.C (28) are
laughing and trading stories.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT.-BLACK SPORT'S CAR.
                                                            
Roman drives with a look of slight disbelief and disgust on
his face. Kintaro is on the passenger side looking rather
smug.
                                                            

5.

                       ROMAN
So how about the truth?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Why would I lie?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I dunno.I was told the story and I
think it's bullshit.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Whatever.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (chuckles)
Ok. Tell it again, I want to hear
it straight from the horse's
mouth. That's spelled
"w-h-o-r-e's", get it?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Clever. We have known each other
for what-fifteen years?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
The "friend card"? Really?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Ok, I'm out at this bar and I run
into a friend of mine.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Nothing more?
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
ANY CLUB/BAR U.S.A-FOUR NIGHTS AGO
                                                            
THE STORY IS VOICED OVER AND SCENE IS PLAYED IN FAST FORWARD
AS THE STORY IS TOLD
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Nope. She just happened to be
there at the same time I was.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (dryly)
Proceed.
                                                            

6.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
Anyways, we chat chit a bit and we
wind up goin to this club around
the corner, she knew the bartender
so I figured why not.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Of course. Anything less would be
uncivilized.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Five Red Bull vodkas and five
shots of patron later, she wants
to come to my house, so she can
sober up for the drive home.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
"Sober up" indeed.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
So she hops in my car and three
miles away from the club my dumb
ass runs out of gas.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I told this to Jewaun and I'll say
it to you: dude its two thousand
and damn seventeen! Who the hell
runs out of gas?! I declare
shenanigans.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Ro, it had been a long day, I had
been drivin all around the city
and it must have slipped my mind.
I reject your declaration of
shenanigans by the way.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (sighs
       disapprovingly)
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
SO. we walk to a gas station, I
get the lil damn container of gas,
yadda, yadda, yadda, we are back
on the road.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
On one gallon of gas?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Huh?
                                                            

7.

                       ROMAN
You expect me to believe you drove
home on one gallon of gas?!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Really. Dude, there's not going to
be a quiz. Cool it with the
questions.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Inquiring minds.....
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (casually gives
       Roman "the
       finger")
We get back to my place. I open a
box of wine; and-
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Classy.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Its all I had! So she had some of
the "devil's lettuce", so we
"toked out" and watched some
Chappelle.
                                                            
THE FAST MOTION STORY FREEZES:
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I'd like my damn DVD back please.
Why is it every time I lend you
something, I have to borrow it
back?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Why call them buildings when they
are already built? Besides don't
you have shit of mine too?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (beat)
                                                            
THE FAST MOTION STORY CONTINUES:
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
ANYWAYS.We're laughing, talkin
about old times,the minutes turn
into the morning. I wake up on the
couch to her reminding me that I
have to take her to her car.So I
run upstairs to hop in the shower.
She stays downstairs. Now, she
            (MORE)

8.

                       KINTARO/K.C. (cont'd)
had one of my t-shirts on-
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I Knew it! U "smashed" didn't you?
Friend my ass!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Can you stay focused?
Unfortunately, no. She was fully
clothed under my shirt. So as I'm
about to get in the shower, I hear
the doorbell.I'm not expecting
anyone so I go to the back bedroom
window to see who it is. It was
some girl I had kicked to the curb
a while ago.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Ah, the scorned lover...
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Apparently. So I shout downstairs
for Kira to open the door for
me...no answer..
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Tellin another chick to open the
door.....u got balls though my
friend, I'll give you that.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
what do I care, I'm not with
either of them.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Scandalous!(blows horn) Ay!! Nice
signal!! I swear these ass-hats
must get their license at Walmart.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Indeed! So i rush downstairs:
still in a towel mind you: as I'm
reaching for the doorknob, I
notice that the blinds are moving.
This bitch is climbing through the
fucking window!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (laughs)
                                                            

9.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
I know right? So as she is
climbing through she says "aww
yeah bitch! you didn't know the
window was open did you?!" with
this wild look in her eyes, she
runs straight for the downstairs
bathroom and proceeds to bang on
the door trying to get Kira to
come out.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Yeah see thats the part I had to
hear from you- the window part-
thats on some movie shit.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
No shit. I told you about the time
a chick ripped my rear view mirror
off the windshield didn't I?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Well crazy people are rumored to
have superhuman strength.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yeah but, dude! I AM NOT WITH HER!
I mean damn, she is goin on about
how I was the one, and this and
that. THE MOST illogical
conversation I have ever had.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Man, first of all any chick that
is dealing with you is a fuckin
nut case, so you should expect
anyone of them to pop in at your
place at a moments notice.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yeah, so, we are yelling, I am
trying to explain that she has no
business here blah blah blah...she
confronts Kira asking her all
kinds of questions-
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Well we are talking about a female
Copernicus, they don't use logic.
And where does this chick get off
pullin a "Sho Kasugi" through your
window anyways?
                                                            

10.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yeah so Kira calls a cab. So as
she approaches the door; the other
chick gives her a lil "grabbage"-
attempting to take my t-shirt off
of her: wrong move. Kira turns
around with a Shaolin "shadow
fist". I tried to break the shit
up but i caught a "bad one"..thats
how I got this "shiner". Shit was
nuts!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (beat)
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yeah so, The other chick is on my
floor crying, then limps away to
her car; I watch her drive away
and then I go take my shower and
get ready for work. I'm on my way
to work when I notice the car is
drivin a little funny. So I take
it to the garage and come to find
out, that chick that climbed
through my window- put sugar in my
fuckin tank!
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT.-ROMAN'S CAR-DAY
                                                            
                       ROMAN
First of all,I would have never
told another girl to answer my
door, shower or no shower. And
"B",I would be WAY more selective
about who I let know where I live
if I were you. How do you know it
was sugar? doesn't that cripple
your car instantly?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Apparently a small amount is not
that bad, depending on the car.
But shit, I thought she would have
just taken her lumps and called it
a day. I guess not, the dumb ass
must have put a sugar packet in
there or somethin. Make a right at
at this street.
                                                            

11.

                       ROMAN
Is this the hotel? So this story
is the reason you are meeting at a
hotel lobby? U need to sit on the
bench for a quarter, player. Take
a breather.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Nah this is a meeting for a
business idea I'm working on. And
why would I take a break and
deprive all these lonely women
what could potentially be one of
the greatest nights of their
lives? Thats just selfish.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
So it does in fact burn when you
pee.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Only when I stand. Come in and
hang out at the bar with me till
this chick shows up.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Ok. Thirty minutes, then I'm out.
I got a zoning meeting to attend.
I think the City of Atlanta is
tryin to screw me out of MORE
money, if thats even possible.
                                                            
Police and fire engine sirens can be heard in the
background.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Damn, there's always somethin
happening in this city.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Fuckin sugar in the tank? I wonder
if she used the real thing or
Splenda?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Piss off.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (FOURTH WALL BREAK)
Thats my boy-KINTARO,We have been
best friends for quite some
time,basketball teammates in high
school and college. He's is a
typical New Yorker, always

hustling, and a die-hard
womanizer. Someone seeing him on
the street would never think that
he is one of the lead developers
for Japanese powerhouse
Intellijence Electronics
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Dude, who are you talking to?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (winks to camera)
Huh?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Don't pull that Rainman shit on me
once we get in here. Don't
embarrass me. Come on.
                                                            
They pull up to the valet and walk in. They didn't notice or
hear the commotion as two suited men jump in car that pulled
up after Roman's; pushing the valet out of the way, and
speed off.

Person 3 takes off towards the street, throws an unknown
object to the side and is immedaitely followed by the fourth
person.
                                                            
Persons 1 and 2 are crouched behind a dumpster catching
their breath. Tires screech in the background.

                       PERSON #1
      (beat)
fuck it.
                                                            
Person 1 loads another clip into his weapon and runs towards
the police car as it begins to barrel its way down the
backstreet as if to play "chicken". the person increases
speed, jumps, lands on the hood of the car mid stride and
jumps over the siren lights while firing into the roof of
the automobile and awkwardly falls to the ground as the
police car eventually crashes. They dart across the street
and hop into a car that is being valeted; the owner and
passenger of the car don't even notice the commotion.

INT. ATLANTA FIRST NATIONAL BANK: LOBBY - DAY
                                                            
                                         THE ROBBERY
                                                            
                                         2:48 P.M
                                                            
The scene opens with the camera looking into the “business
end” of a sawed off shotgun. The security "officer" is on
the ground with the afore mentioned shotgun pointed at his

14.

face by an assailant wearing a black suit with a Kabuki
Theatre mask.
                                                            
                       ROBBER #1
      (fires a shot into
       the air)
Your attention, please! Eat the
floor. Everyone! Now! Tellers put
your damn hands where I can see
them! You! Give me your keys!
                                                            
The robbers destroy all cameras they can find and make their
way behind the teller stations and to the safe deposit
boxes.
                                                            
                       ROBBER#3
      (o.s.)
Tellers empty your tills and put
all the money in these bags, and
no ink cartridges-or you will be
shot! Don't be a hero-or you will
be shot! I truly hope we are clear
on these rules.
                                                            
                       ROBBER#2
Ok you fucksticks,keep munchin
carpet and no one's wig will get
pushed back! (in the direction of
the vault) How are we doin over

                       ROBBER#3 (o.s.)

                       ROBBER#4
ONE MINUTE!
                                                            
                       SECURITY OFFICER
      (speech impedament)
W-w-hy are you d-doing this? You
know the p-p-police won’t let you
get away, why don’t you just
g-give up? They aren’t going to
stop until th-th-th-
                                                            
The robber immediately hits the guard in the face with the
butt of the gun and cocks the shotgun.
                                                            
                       ROBBER #1
"th-th-th-th"! Shut the fuck up

have a heart attack! (takes aim at
the security officers head) now do

                       ROBBER #1 (cont'd)
you REALLY have something to say?
                                                            
The guard shakes his head negatively and puts his head back
down: into a puddle of his own blood.
                                                            
                       ROBBER #1
Smart man. Time!?
                                                            
                       ROBBER#4
25 seconds!
                                                            
                       ROBBER #1
Pack it up! LETS GO!! Everyone,
thank you for your cooperation!
(Sarcasm) Have a SUPER day!
                                                            
The robbers scramble to the door and disappear into the
blinding rays of the sun.
                                                            
                       SECURITY OFFICER

A bank employee snatches the radio away from the "officer".
                                                            
                       BANK EMPLOYEE

National Bank of Atlanta downtown

the occupants of the bank applaud and the employees handsthe
radio back to the security officer with a look of disgust.
                                                            
                       SECURITY OFFICER
.....Thank......
                                                            

16.

                       BANK EMPLOYEE
yeah, whatever.
                                                            
The camera zooms in on one of those cheesy motivational
pictures that hangs by the banks exit doors. Its of a dark
rainforest with a man looking up at the light breaking
through the trees-
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE TO:
                                                            
 
EXT. A FOREST - NIGHT
                                                            
ROMAN is wearing a "bruce lee is my homeboy "t-shirt, and
is wandering around the woods; apparently lost, the moon
streaks rays of light through the trees- but that is of no
help to our lost friend.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Dammit. All these trees look
alike.
                                                            
He starts to stroll when he hears strange noises.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (pauses cautiously)
                                                            
He starts in the opposite direction, a few steps further he
hears the same noise. He changes direction again.He hears
the noise for a third time and heads right towards it.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Guys?! stop fuckin around! Cuz the
shits not funny! assholes!!
                                                            
He walks further and sees a clearing; as he nears it he sees
a clump of something in the distance. It turns and looks
ROMAN in the face: he sees nothing but teeth and yellow
human like eyes. It yowls and lumbers towards him...
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (speechless)
                                                            
ROMAN takes off in a mad dash for his life through the
brush, almost falling as he runs, doing his best not to look
back, he reaches another clearing and stops to catch his
breath.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (breathing heavily)
what the fuck was that? Bears
don't run on two feet. Shit!
                                                            

17.

He looks up and sees a huge mansion in the distance, and
against his better judgment he walks towards it.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (internal thought)
ok, ok, don’t freak out…don’t
freak out. Let’s just go up here
and see if anyone is home. (Sighs)
Strange house, dark forest, this
just keeps getting better and
better!
                                                            
As he nears the house he notices that it is immaculate from
roof to doorstep, and it seemed very out of place.
                                                            
ROMAN opens the creaky gate and walks through, past a
monstrous fountain and around the driveway to what looks
like the front door. He walks up to the door and is in awe
by the very large and very detailed door ornaments
                                                            
                       ROMAN
nice knockers.
                                                            
He chuckles to himself as he lifts the massive ornaments and
releases, causing a very loud BANG! Dust flies from the
impact of the door ornaments: he waits, but no one answers.


BANG! BANG!
                                                            
Again he waits, still no response. He reaches for the
doorknob but pauses
                                                            
                       ROMAN (.)
      (FOURTH WALL BREAK)
Now, how many damn horror movies
have you seen where people go
looking for shit and then they
find it ….only to die ten minutes
later!? ..and ..I'm black. FUCK!
                                                            
He releases the door and walks to the side of the house,
hoping to see a light coming from inside, an open window;
something, anything to keep him from actually going inside.
It’s so dark on the side of the house that he can’t see a
thing. He contemplates…
                                                            
                       ROMAN
ok! front door it is!
                                                            
ROMAN returns to the front door, takes a huge sigh and turns
the knob: ironically enough, it's unlocked.
                                                            

18.

                       ROMAN
(rolls his eyes) fucking great.
                                                            
Reluctantly, he walks in and the inside of the house is in
utter shambles; the complete opposite of the outside and
there is a horrid stench.He hears a loud POP and HISS from
one of the dark corners followed by the sounds of spilled
liquid
                                                            
                       ROMAN
breathe...relax…
                                                            
He reaches into his pocket for a smoke and his lighter.


Flick, flick, flick, flick….

                                                            
                       ROMAN
Dammit! This is not the
time….piece of shit free lighter!
                                                            
He shakes the lighter violently)

Flick!
He holds the lighter up in front of him and sees chairs and
desks, and to his left, a slightly opened door. He turns to
his right and almost drops the lighter; this was where the
noises were coming from! He walked closer and saw that it
was some sort of fossilized egg shaped “thing” that seemed
to be bubbling over with some kind of “fluid”: it popped
open and something flies out and lands near his feet.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
(gasps) what th-….
                                                            
And before he could finish his thought it leaps at him! He
ducked not even knowing or seeing exactly what it was; and
as he ducked, his lighter expelled an unexpected burst of
fluid that illuminted part of the room and showed what
seemed to be rows and rows of these "eggs"!!

Each of them spitting out these "things" and coming alive,
moving in his direction!
He slowly moved back; towards the door he had seen on the
left side of the room. He stumbled through the door, slammed
it shut, and leaned against it.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
(out of breath and shaken) Jesus!
What… kind… of place… is this?
What have I gotten myself into?!
                                                            

19.

He can hear the creatures clawing at the door and turns to
lock it.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
you have GOT to be kidding me!!!
                                                            
Directly in front of ROMAN there is this vast wading pool
and it is teaming with "ghoul–like"people and they all turn
and stare at him with dead eyes, giving ROMAN a feeling like
the initial sensation of being frightened: but constant.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
oh…my….god……
                                                            
                       VOICE
Hey Romy! Come to the back! It’s
safe back here!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
who is that? Do I know you? Where
are you?
                                                            
                       VOICE
What part of “the back” don’t you
understand?! Come on!!
                                                            
Suddenly he recognizes the Voice….
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Jason??!??
                                                            
Without even thinking he wades into the water, the "people"
that had been staring at him part as though they were the
Red Sea and ROMAN slowly wades through the water. All the
"people" are breathing heavily with their shoulders heaving
and menacingly stare at him as he passes.
                                                            
He makes it to the back where there is a flight of stairs
leading up to a huge glass box with a blinding eerie light
coming from it. There is something going on in there; it
looks like human bodies writhing around fighting for
position, but he can't make it out.
                                                            
                       JASON
Hey "pee-pee toucher"!
                                                            
He wheels around, and sees JASON (11); he is zombie like.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Jason? Is that you? But, but
you…..you're....
                                                            

20.

                       JASON
shut up! Of course it’s me you
loser!! I wouldn’t have called you
back here if it wasn’t important.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Whats with the name calling man, I
havent seen you in ages. Wait a
minute.. Am I …dead??
                                                            
JASON just smirks and signals to follow him.
                                                            
                       JASON
Come on, some one wants to meet
you...he says it’s important.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
who is it?
                                                            
JASON points to another flight of stairs; these stairs are
leading downwards, and it's teeming with random people
milling around. Some are talking and others are looking at
Roman in amazement. At the top of the staircase stands a man
with a frightening resemblance to the late TUPAC SHAKUR;
motioning him to come closer as he heads down the staircase.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (disbelief)
no……..
                                                            
He turns only to find that JASON has vanished. ROMAN takes a
deep sigh and as he makes his way down the stairs, he sees
his EX-GIRLFRIEND and her FRIEND gyrating to music that he
obviously can't hear...but they can.
                                                            
                       EX-GIRLFRIEND
hey baby! Follow us, he is
waiting….
                                                            
His EX-GIRLFRIEND leads the way with the friend behind her,
putting Roman third. And instead of grabbing his hand, the
FRIEND fondles his crotch and beckons him forward, hiking
her skirt up to expose her rear end with every step,
seemingly inviting ROMAN to touch it.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
excuse me uh, but your skirt is…..
                                                            
                       FREIND OF EX-GIRLFRIEND
(She puts a finger to her mouth
and his hand on her breast)
shhhhhhhhhhh!!!

                       FREIND OF EX-GIRLFRIEND (cont'd)
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (snatches his hand
       away from her
       breast)
Uhhh..ok. What's all this about?
Why are u here? What's happened to
me?
                                                            
They finally make it down to where "TUPAC" is. He gives
ROMAN an approving nod and motioned for him to sit. ROMAN is
looking around- frightened, and feels as if he is about to
regurgitate.
                                                            
                       TUPAC-ESQUE MAN
look man, this shit is about to
get real, the gate is gonna open
at 8:30 and you had better be
ready! The day has come for
everyone to be held
accountable…you hear me?! Nothing
is as it seems.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (visibly shaken)
a gate is opening? A gate to
where?
                                                            
                       TUPAC-ESQUE MAN
get this fool out of my fuckin
face!
                                                            
Suddenly, everyone starts yelling at a barely tolerable
level…it sounds something like……..


(Alarm clock)
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (sits up in bed
       gasping for air
       and then takes a
       deep breath)
Damn….
                                                            
He looks over at the clock, and it reads: 8:30 A.M.
                                                            
                       ROMAN

stop eating before I go to sleep!

                       ROMAN
My bad, I had the radio on. But
yeah, I amped dude, for real.
Grand re-opening. Which means I am
that much closer to owning the
club; so I can finally get Mara
out of my life.

True, you don't mean that though,

holding out for someone that is
too much of a bitch to see you're

A slight gasp wheezes from the crowd of co-workers.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Baby please…ssshhh….
                                                            
                       WOMAN
(more irate) DON’T BE “SHUSHIN”
ME…and don’t “baby “me either! Who
do you think you are?!?
                                                            
And before he can answer, she winds up and slaps
him....hard.

of saliva flying from his mouth.**

The crowd reacts.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
(bewildered and embarrassed) are u
crazy?!?
                                                            
                       WOMAN
      (artfully pulls a
       butterfly knife
       from her purse)
are you?!! To think you could get
away with being trifling? I am
goin to make sure you pay for this
shit! NO ONE does this to me. You
WILL feel the same kind of pain I
am feeling right now! Believe that
shit!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
(rubbing face) u didn’t even give
me a chance to –
                                                            
WOMAN flips him the bird and leaves, almost knocking to the
ground a group of very important looking people that were
entering the office blurting out random spanish phrases.
KINTARO is holding his face and looks over at his
onlookers/co workers. They realize they have been spotted
and attempt to work arbitrarily.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
(walks and motions to onlookers)
thanks! You’ve been a great crowd!
I’ll be here all week!

She slapped u at work? In front of

Whaaaatttt?! You’re joking right?
Well whose undergarments were
they?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
I wish. You should have seen their
faces. More importantly you should
have seen her face; I think I saw
the Devil today! The gates of hell
opened up and she hopped out!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (stunned)
What did you just say?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
I said, she jumped out of the
gates of hell this morning. Why?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
((looks at the phone as if he
can't believe he just heard what
he heard)
never mind, it's nothing…but uh
don't dodge the question; whose
were they?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
huh?

the panties man, the
draws...….spit it out!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
man who fuckin knows? There's no
telling how long they have been at
the crib-shit they could have been
my sisters...
                                                            
                       ROMAN
your sisters?! thats gross dude.
Do i need to remind you that u ARE
under oath Mr Campanella? The
truth please…..
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
It is the truth your honor.
Remember when she came from Japan
to visit and I would come home to
clothes everywhere? It is very
possible that they are hers..but

I can't believe she didnt buy that
story..oh wait..u got the taste
smacked out of your
mouth...(laughs)
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
the problem is, that you THINK you
are funny. But come on...you know
if I knew exactly whose they were,
I’d tell you.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
No doubt.Well listen, I have a
couple errands to run and I have
to go make sure everything is set
up for the weekend. The lights
finally came in so I’ll probably
be messin around with those. Come
by the club this afternoon and
give me a hand.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
yeah, she was PISSED. I couldn’t
get a word in…but hey, now I don’t
have to do the “its not you it’s
me speech”....I was getting tired
of her anyway.
                                                            
Laughter in unison
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Aiight, but yo, I'll come by the
club and lend a hand. But first I
have to go see this chick for
lunch and then Ill come through.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Yeah, Cuz i definitely got a lot
of things to do today. i can't sit
around on the phone with you all
morning.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Man, there are gonna be so many
"loose slots" in that club! i
can't wait!

"seduced by the dark side you have
become". Why don't you use your
powers for good- instead of ass,
ass, ass, all the time?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Why don't you stop being so
"gay,gay,gay" all the time? Hey,
did you put the jacuzzi in the VIP
like I suggested?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
You....are a reTARD.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Dude! Women, jacuzzi, champagne?!
You could give a whole new meaning
to "Hot Spring"!

drop it in the toilet,he was trimming his pubes while on the

back to talk to her,and then a shot of her boyfriend walking

it’s me.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (FOURTH WALL BREAK)
And this ladies and gentlemen is
my ex-girlfriend, MARA;she has a
knack for showing up at all the
wrong times. We have been broken
up for two years but she still
comes by every now and then, it
seems just to stir up old feelings
and start trouble - but I somehow
entertain it. She is dating some
asshat now, I wonder what she
wants today.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
(sighing) come in
                                                            
                       MARA
      (walks in
       cautiously,
       looking around
       the room)
hey how are you? Is this a bad
time? it sounded like you were
talking to someone. Anyways, I saw
you leaving the club this morning.
Are you goin back soon?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Uh, yeah. Whats up? Trouble in
paradise? I need to talk to T.B's
"no front door security skills
havin" ass. How did you get in
here?
                                                            
                       MARA
I snuck past him..you know how
lazy T.B. is. Do you think the
only reason i come to see you is
because I am having trouble in my
relationship?
                                                            

31.

                       ROMAN
Yup.
                                                            
                       MARA
Still an ass I see.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Apparently.
                                                            
                       MARA
right.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Seriously though. whats been goin
on? From the look on your face it
actually has got something to do
with your new man. Its the same
look you used to give me.
                                                            
                       MARA
Oh so you were paying attention to
me huh? Well since you have to
know yes we did get in a fight.
and maybe I do come to see you to
cheer me up. So what?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Whatever. What you got in the bag,
hag?
                                                            
                       MARA
Oh this. Its a vase my dad gave me
years ago. I keep my weekly
flowers in it, but I figured I
would bring it over here so when
you screw up with another girl,
you can have a nice vase she can
throw at you.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
How considerate. Every week with
the flowers, this guy. What a
goober.
                                                            
                       MARA
He brings me flowers every week.
So what?

Make it a different flower, some
candy, a fuckin stuffed
animal...somethin you know?

Why is it that I get the feeling
that you like pissing on my
parade?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Well, i have been drinking alot
more water lately. And your parade
just happens to pass in front of
the window I throw my pot of piss
out of.
                                                            
                       MARA
Why all the negative undertones?
"show some sincerity"?! I mean
really Roman, what the hell??
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Easy killer. There were no
negative undertones; at least I
didn't mean for there to be. I was
just saying that it would be great
if-
                                                            
                       MARA
I have never bad mouthed any of
the floozies i have seen you with.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Floozies?! I beg your pardon!
Where do YOU get off callin anyone
"loose"?!
                                                            
                       MARA
See?! This is why I can't have any
kind of relationship with you at
all. You are still living in the
past!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Don't be so damn dramatic; "living
in the past" whatever. those are
the damn facts! Don't come in here
tryin to flip shit on me. Look,
you are fuckin up my "chi" with
all this negative energy.
                                                            

33.

                       MARA
Well whatever, I came up here to
tell you something.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      ((folds arms))
which is?
                                                            
                       MARA
My father lost the club and we
can't find him. Literally.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
what?! How do you "lose" a club?!
I like how you are just so
"whatever" about it. You LEAD the
conversation with something like
that- not some stupid vase!
                                                            
                       MARA
In a poker game at your buddy
Sam's resturant a few days ago.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
A few days ago!? Jesus Mara! when
were you going to tell me?! I have
all this shit planned, the
re-opening . Dammit! What does
this mean?! Was Sam there?
                                                            
                       MARA
You know Sam is never involved;
his father is the one who tells
him what to do, he tries to stay
out of the underground- thats why
he runs the restaurant. I dont
know what this means for any of
us, like I said my family can't
find him. He has apparently gone
into hiding and the clock is
ticking.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
"The clock is ticking" What the
hell does that mean?! Are they
coming for me now? How in the hell
can you bet an entire club?!

I don't know , and I'm sorry. I
have like less than a month to get
half a million dollars or to cover
the bet...I don't even know what

FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND
DOLLARS?!?Un-fuckin-believable! A
month? what kind of fucked up
time-table is that. UGH! Ok look I
am gonna make some calls. We have
to find him. If he is still alive.
How in the hell are we gonna get
that kind of money in such a short
period of time?
                                                            
                       MARA
"we"?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Yes. WE. If I don't get this
resolved then I'm screwin the
pooch. If he loses this club I got
nothing. Old man Wu put me in it
this time. Dammit!
                                                            
                       MARA
Roman,you know I don't like it
when you call him that. And
besides, this isn't your
responsibility.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Really. So I am just supposed to
sit back and let you, of all
people, control a situation that
may just land me in the
unemployment line? Or dead?
Thanks, but no thanks. "Not my
responsibilty"?!! Then why did you
come up here then?

MARA. Not sure what to say.

No,no. Kinda like those floozies
we see at every All Star game we
go to. The slick bitches that only
date guys that would only benefit
them monetarily; real low key ones
you know? Like that chick I used
to date that would skip from one
VIP room to the next at the club.

Oh yeah, what happened to her?

at the sushi spot last week?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
You told me she was in sales!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (smirks)
I'll wait.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Really.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yes. Really

                       ROMAN
Ookk...go on.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
yeah man! These chicks are like
escorts to like those old rich
geezers need to have some eye
candy on their arm for some big
function.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Gotcha. And given the high profile
cats that frequent the club-
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Now you are catching on! And even
then-
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Dude. with all the bullshit thats
goin on with stars today what
makes you think that they wouldn't
pull my black ass through the
wringer if it ever gets out that
they are escorts?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Who's gonna know?? It's chicks out
there that do it for free! They
fuckin for Micheal Kors bags and a
"fancy feast" at Red Lobster dude!
Know what I'm sayin? And why not?
You said the city council is
trying to get rid of clubs in this
area, so why not do this and make
a shit load of money? I'm just
sayin.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (He kinda isnt
       paying attention
       to his friend
       right now.)
uh huh.But this aint Detroit and
I'm not a doctor.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Are you listening to me?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Pops lost the club in a poker game
and Mara can't find him.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
WHAT?!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
And apparently, the clock is
ticking.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Dude! When-
                                                            
Enter KEVIN(27), ROMAN'S head of security. ROMAN flashes
KINTARO a "don't say anything" look.

KINTARO acknowledges silently.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Hey hey, what are you two gay-fers
up to? are you hanging lights
yourself Ro? Where are the
brothers at? How come they aren't
doin this?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Whats up Kev. The Fettucci's?
Nah, I can't have them do this.
you remember what happened with
the disco ball don't you?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
See? I'm not the only one who
thinks you don't need to be doin
that shit. Disco ball?
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Yeah. disco ball. you know the
round thing with all the little
mirrors on it? Like the one you
got hangin from your rear view
mirror,"sweet Charlie"?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (gives kevin the
       finger)
get fucked Kevin!

A WEEK AGO
                                                            
Scene cuts to two burly Italians lumbering towards the
entrance of the nightclub chasing a disco ball that has
somehow made its way outside to unaware pedestrians.
                                                            
                       FETTUCCI #1
      (Heavy New York
       accent)
Ayo stop that bawl!!!!!!!!!

                                                            
Just as the ball bounces away from ANTHONY FETTUCCI's grasp;
an old woman bends over in the middle of the sidewalk.
                                                            
                       OLD LADY
Oh, happy day! A penny on heads.
                                                            
The elderly lady is pummeled by the disco ball. the end
result has her head, arms, and legs only showing under the
half smashed ball, making her look like a disco turtle.
                                                            
                       FETTUCCI #2
Ooooooo….that's gonna leave a
mawk!
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE TO:
                                                            
PRESENT DAY-ROMAN AND KINTARO CONTINUE TALKING
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Oooohh yeah I remember that...How
in the hell did they let it get
outside??
                                                            
                       ROMAN
The floor was just waxed, and they
are not the most coordinated
people in the world either.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Riiiight….Um, are those strobe
lights supposed to be attached to
that beam? It doesn't look sturdy
enough.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
(takes one hand and knocks on the
beam, then shakes it a little)
See? ...I'm good
                                                            

42.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
( Shrugs) I guess. Anyway, the
Asian chick introduced me to a
friend of hers; and she and I have
been kickin around ideas for a
minute and we came up with the
whole club/escort thing. And wait
till you see the girls (Austin
Powers imitation) "they're
switched on baby...yeah!"
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Escorts? What the hell? Roman,
PLEASE tell me you aren't actually
considering this.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
( Shakes his head) KC you're
stupid, do you realize this? Its
not happening yet, I'm considering
it., But Kev I got you tho, there
will def. be some Latinas in the
mix for ya.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
"Mami's"??
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yeah these girls are choice,even
Kevin's simple ass can get laid.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
really
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yes!
                                                            
                       KEVIN
You bitches better be lucky I just
stopped in to pick some shit up. i
got too much to do today to be
dickin around with you homos. i'll
see you fudge packers later.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
He needs to come out of the
closet.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
KC, I am nervous about the
legalities of the whole thing.
                                                            

43.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
I don't see why, I mean if he in
fact is gay..they've already
passed the legislation .. so I
mean..
                                                            
                       ROMAN
No you idoit! About this idea you
have..Jesus!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Oh well I only have one thing to
say to that- Pull up your skirt,
grab your balls, and take a risk!
Besides when have I ever put you
in harms way?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
No comment.
                                                            
ROMAN tightens the last screw and gets down from the ladder
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Aiight lets give these fuckers a
try and see what we workin wit.
                                                            
They both walk over to the sound room: where all the power
switches are kept and ROMAN stands outside the room so he
can see if they work correctly
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Aiight KC .hit it!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (salutes)
straight away captain!
                                                            
Nothing happens
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Dammit!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
See?! I told u...Mr. Fix it!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Shut up!
                                                            
There is a sharp crackle and the lights start working
perfectly, gyrating wildly with random flashing lights.
                                                            

44.

                       ROMAN
See?! Ha! Ha! Electrician
elecsmchician!!
Switch em off.
                                                            
The switch is flipped off and they slowly come to a stop.
ROMAN smiles and twirls the screwdriver triumphantly. Right
as he does, the lights come crashing to the floor. ROMAN
looks at KINTARO puzzled as he pulls out instructions.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
So uh K.C., how much did u say we
stand to make from this idea of
yours?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.

                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
INT. CLUB GENKII-ROMAN'S OFFICE-NEXT DAY - DAY
                                                            
QUALITY CONTROL
                                                            
ROMAN is arbitrarily going through paperwork that he has
been putting off for months. KINTARO walks in with whom
evidently is the woman that he has been speaking to ROMAN
about with the escort service. Its meet and greet time. She
is slightly tall and oddly attractive Asian female. It seems
as if her name is MONA; not because introductions have been
made, but because of the pack of giggling girls that follow
the two into the office while asking questions MONA
seemingly doesnt have the answers to. They parade in one by
one; each is more beautiful than the next.
                                                            
                       MONA
      (To Roman)
Hi Mr. Williams! It's a pleasure
to finally meet you, I ve heard so
much.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (extends hand)
The pleasure is all mine, I assure
you.
                                                            
                       MONA
      (grins)
Thank you! I can't express enough
how much of a godsend you are. You
have no idea how much you are
helping to maintian my sanity

                       MONA (cont'd)
these days .
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Well, I'm glad I can help. Any
friend of KC's is a friend of
mine; and please, call me Roman.
                                                            
                       MONA
      (shyly)
O.k.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Besides, KC tells me you are quite
savy when it comes to business, so
we have nowhere to go but up.
                                                            
Theres a moment of silent awkwardness..MONA finds ROMAN
attractive.
                                                            
                       MONA
well, the reason i need your help
if KC hasnt already told you. The
landlord of the building I was in
had become a born again Christian
and once he found out I ran an
escort service he called me " the
devil" and terminated my contract.
i still have to speak with my
lawyer about a possible breach of
contract suit against him. The
shit sucks, he has no right to do
that. But for the time being i'm
kinda assed-out, so again , I
really appreciate what you are
dong for me.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
One of these days, people are
gonna stop passing judgement on
people and using their religion as
a "spear of righteousness". But
whatever, you here now, so lets
get to it. These are the girls?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
yes,yes! In all of their greased
up babythigh glory. (winks) whats
up girls.
                                                            
The girls giggle and shyly sway from side to side.
                                                            

46.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
Ladies Ladies! Welcome to Club
Genkii; where "errting is irie
mon"
                                                            
The girls laugh and applaud approvingly
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Indeed!
                                                            
                       MONA
      (extends hand)
temporary partners?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Yezzir! But I do have a few rules.
                                                            
                       MONA
ok, shoot
                                                            
                       ROMAN
First and foremost, NO SEX IN THE
CLUB! No dirty sanchez, no angry
dragon, no shockers, no arabian
goggles..none of that shit.
                                                            
the girls giggle as ROMAN smirks. KINTARO looks puzzled.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
How bout brunskis? Is that cool?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Hmmm, brunskis..brunskis..ok.
Brunskis get the green light. But
thats it!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Sweetness!!!!
                                                            
                       MONA
      (in between
       giggles)
whats an "angry dragon"?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (laughs
       hysterically)
                                                            
                       ROMAN
That question my friend..i am
afriad is very priviledged
information. But you will know it
when you see it.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (bad asian accent)
so sorry.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
But seriously. I really want to
keep the professional integrity of
the club intact, or there is no
way this is going to work.
Everyone must believe that the
girls are "regular party goers".
                                                            
                       MONA
Gotcha, no problemo.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (rubs hands
       together and
       scans the rows of
       scandally clad
       women)
Now. The pleasantries are out of
the way. Lets get to the good
shit.

       pocket and brings
       out a yellow

What the hell is that?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.

A tape measure. Stole it from my
grandmother.

For?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.

I am in charge of the girls right?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Right.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Am I in charge of the girls??

Yes! you idiot!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Well, sir, if you must know. I
must make sure that all girls in
the building meet specs. Anything
less would be uncivilized..
                                                            
                       ROMAN
word,word. Well let me say a few
things on em..and then they are
all yours.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yezzir!
                                                            
ROMAN walks down the line of standing women like a drill
seargent. Running down the "rules and perameters".

For Salsa and Meringue?

Not bad. not bad at all. Those

KINTARO's phone rings: "Kung Fu Fighting" is the ringtone.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Hello? Ah. Hai! Matsumoro-san!
O-genkii desu ka? uh huh..a

ruckus. yes sir. i'm glad they

my boss wants me to take a little
"vacation" because of what
happened with that crazy ass girl
in the office. So reckless. He
would like me to straighten out my
personal affairs before coming
back so that it doesnt happen
again, we almost lost a huge
account because of it. Which is
fair, because he could have very
easily fired my ass.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Honto? THAT was the appointment?
that was walkin in as she stormed
out?

So wheyas this light at?

You'll see it as soon as you get
to the front of the DJ booth. And
fells, I don't think I have to
emphasise that you must be
CAREFUL? i don't need anymore
incidents.

No, sir. you do not. We have honed

Well i should hope so. Do you know
that one of the conditions to that
old lady that you hit with that
disco ball's lawsuit is that she
have VIP status in the club.
Fuckin judge. i swear that jackass

Dude. there is no way you can miss
her! She is what we call in the
biz a "snow leopard", She walks
around the club looking at the
cielings and shit. Checking all
the exits, you would think the old
bag works here the way she acts
sometimes. (scoffs) Ordering
mimosas and trying to get everyone
to do the "electric slide".

Oh...
                                                            
                       FETTUCCI #1
Well Roman, I promise you that the
work we perform from this day
forward will be nothing other than
fuckin spectacular my friend. No
mistakes. (smirks) Uh, you didn't
have the floor waxed recently did
you?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Everyone is a fuckin comedian
today. I swear. no i didn't. And
i'll tell you another thing, if
you.....
                                                            
The office phone rings.
                                                            

52.

                       ROMAN
Hello? Club Genkii. (rolls eyes)
Oh, Hi Mrs. Francheski. How are
you.
                                                            
ROMAN motions to KINTARO to grab the bottle of "Johnny
Walker Blue Label" off the office bar and a glass. KINTARO
oblidges, but pours himself a shot and takes it before
handing over the goods.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (slightly annoyed)
no, mrs. Francheski,..tonight is
not "pussy poppa numba one" night,
we don't do that anymore. I told
you that an hour ago when you
called. So please don't come in
here wearing a wife beater again
ok? And no more spandex!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (dry heave)
                                                            
ROMAN throws the FETTUCCI BROTHERS a "see what I mean?!"
look. They walk out shrugging to each other.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
And Please, if you are going to
"excercise your "rights"; I beg of
you, don't try and get the patrons
to do the electric slide anymore
becuase its not...I know it was
your husbands favorite dance, but
that doesn't mean..(deep sigh and
takes a huge gulp of his drink)..i
know Mrs. Francheski..i know..Ok,
Mrs Francheski, i will see you
later. ok, then. Uh huh. ok, then,
all right, Bye.
                                                            
KEVIN enters
                                                            
                       KEVIN
      (slightly winded)
Well? Where are they?!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
What did you do? Run down here?
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Hell yeah I did!
                                                            

53.

                       ROMAN
      (FOURTH WALL BREAK)
Hey I guess you are still tryin to
figure out who this asshole is-
well Kevin is head of my security
and is another one of my college
buddies. Tattoos, a bad attitude
and a thing for spanish women. He
went to the marines after high
school, and then a brief stint in
the CIA. after the CIA, no one
dares ask what he got himself
into.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Dude..you really have got to get
some help for that.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Where you been? You missed the
show.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (ala Flordia Evans
       on the sitcom
       "Good TImes")
Damn, damn, DAMN!!!!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Well Usain, you did all that
running for nothing.The bettys are
gone my man.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (chuckles)
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (winks at KC)
yeah, and there were some spanish
chicks too; but we sent em
packin...no need for em.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
What?! The hell you did!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I'm fuckin with you. There were a
few mixed in the bunch, they will
all be back tonight for
orientation after the staff
meeting, so simmer down. i hope
you don't mind tall women.
                                                            

54.

                       KEVIN
man, there ain't a women on this
planet i can't handle. And even if
i coulnd't handle them, I wouldnt
even notice, you wanna know why?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
not really, but I am sure you are
gonna tell us.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
      (brushes off his
       shoulder)
i'll be too busy lookin good!
                                                            
The guys all get a good chuckle out of that.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Speakin of good looks, did you
make those calls I asked you to do
earlier? About the undercover cops
for tonight? And make sure...
                                                            
                       KEVIN
I know man, NO ASSHOLES..Ro, how
long have I been head of your
security?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Since day one.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Exactly. I got this brody!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Aiight,,just promise me one thing:
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Say it on me.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
First off, dont call me "brody".
And please,the next time you feel
so inclined to knock ones jaw
loose; double check make sure they
are actually NOT on the
guestlist?! Can you do that for
me?! The last guy you clocked was
the owner of Majik City. he still
can't talk right.
                                                            

55.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yeah, dude sounds like that 'Mush
Mouth" cat from "Fat Albert"
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (laughs)
'hey-bah fab-uh Albut, when-be
gon-bah gebbet sum-buh ice-buh
cream-buh?"
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Whatever. that fucker had it
comin, wit that cubby hole of a
strip club he is runnin over
there, he needed to be popped.
Theres no where to sit! You know
I'm right! How you gonna get a lap
dance and you gotta share your
seat wit anotha nigga? Thats that
bullshit right there. if he comes
backl i'll pop him another one.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Jesus. just please, do what I ask,
double check the list. Please?
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Yeah, yeah. (closes office door)
Listen, i've been thinking.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (folds arms)
This ought to be good
                                                            
                       KEVIN
      (glares at KC,
       then turns back
       to Roman)
Are you sure you want to go
through with this idea? i mean
"qoute un qoute" hookers...Thats a
little..
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (interjects)
ESCORTS!
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Whatever (looks at KC) HOES. Rome,
are you sure this is a good idea?
I mean, I am all about takin
risks, but this seems a bit
outlandish to me. Not to mention a
little strange, i have a bad
            (MORE)

56.

                       KEVIN (cont'd)
feeling about it all. we are gonna
have alot of money in the club
that night cuz of the event. Are
you really willing to let somone
that close to what we got goin on?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Why is yo musclebound ass
barricading? We got you yo raggly
ass spanish chicks. So shut your
hole and let grown folks do grown
folks shit. Can't this man take
advantage of the entreprenural
spirit if he wants? Its his club
after all!
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Its not his club YET, and yeah he
can do whatever the fuck he wants
to do- but I am just saying, the
calculated risk seems a bit high
to me.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Kevin, you can't even SPELL
"calculated".
                                                            
KEVIN shoots K.C. a hard glare, K.C. shrugs his shoulders at
KEVIN as if to say "go ahead and spell it, I'm waiting".
                                                            
                       ROMAN
yeah I hear what you are saying
Kev, but i think everything can be
made to where everyone wins, you
know? So we are gonna stick to the
play: try it for a few months, see
of it works and if it doesnt, we
can always dump it. you never know
we may have stumbled on to
something here.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Yeah, a "jack-shack" with a
bar..real inventive. i'm goin on
record by sayin "I don't like it"
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
man..if you don't sit yo "dudley
do right" ass down, you better.
you are just salty you missed out
on pickin the girls. Latin chicks
aint all that anyways.
                                                            

57.

                       KEVIN
Piss off KC! Are you trying to get
bodyslammed today? Cuz i'll fuckin
do it.
                                                            
KC jumps down off the stool he was sitting on. KEVIN takes a
step forward, smiling. ROMAN steps inbetween.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Really? You guys think now is the
time for this? Am I gonna have to
keep you guys seperate? Like grade
school children?
                                                            
                       KEVIN
nah, the only thing you are sonna
have to separate is my foot froom
his ass if he keeps it up! KC just
cuz you are a cyberpimp, don't
walk around like you are God's
gift to women. I mean jesus, how
many bitches do you need?! Fuckin
around wit all those crazy ass
bitches, you would think you would
have learned your lesson by now!
you do know that those bitches you
meet, are emotionally challenged.
Shit you have told me that
yourself. they are all attention
junkies!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
he just called you a cyberpimp!
Now THATS funny!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Shut up.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
No, really; how many girls have
you met online? Honestly.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Why does that matter? Wit yo'
hatin ass.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Kev you do sound a little
"haterish". But now I'm curious,
so answer.
                                                            

58.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (beat)
Anywhere from 75 to 100; give or
take.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Holy condom-usage Batman! That
many?! How long have you been on
Plenty of Whales ? 2 years? 3?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
"OBJECTION"! The site is called
"Plenty of Fish".
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Overuled. "Plenty of Whales" is
indeed an accurate depiction of
the women on that site.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
And facebook.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Hey maaaan. Facebook is for
friends!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
And pimpmyclit.com and Myspace.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
What the hell is "pimpmyclit.com"?
And I thought Myspace died years
ago. How long have you been doing
this?
                                                            
                       KEVIN
See? Cyberpimp! I told you!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (proudly)
A year and a half.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
A Year and a half?!
                                                            
                       KEVIN
      (laughs)
Myspace is the debil!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (still shocked)
A year and a half?!
                                                            

59.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
Will you stop sayin that? You act
like you don't meet lots of women
in the club.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Dude! Do you realize what the
ratio is in Atlanta? Its like 15
to 1! You are using all yours up
at once! Thats bad math man...bad
math
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Err, some of them aren't from
Atlanta.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
No, don't tell me....
                                                            
                       KEVIN
They come from different states?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Sometimes. And sometimes from
different countries.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (Shakes head)
Ok, riddle me this: so that chick
that attacked you at work the
other day, you met her online
too?!
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Attacked?! You were attacked at
work? How come no one told me?
Damn, I always get left out of the
good shit!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I'll tell you later. The jury is
still out on that one though. This
story is funnier than when he got
his foot ran over talkin to that
girl as she was driving away in
Buckhead the night of Jewuan's
bachelor party, remember?
                                                            
                       KEVIN
      (chuckles)
Yeah I remember, but what was
funnier was hearin him in the
hotel room scrubbing the shit out
of those Timberlands tryin to get

60.

                       KEVIN (cont'd)
that tire mark out!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (flips them both
       the "bird")
And yes, I did meet her online;
and yes she is crazy. But thats
just one bad apple, you know?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
K.C, from my count thats more than
one bad apple. And for the
record-your problem isn't the
fruit from the tree, its the
actual tree itself!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Whatever. Roman, I KNOW you aren't
talking! What about Mara? Huh?
Huh? That bitch is nutier than a
bag of cashews!
                                                            
                       KEVIN
He's right, the girl is crazy.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (ROMAN heads for
       the door but
       stops as he walks
       out)
Hey,hey,hey! This isnt about me.
Besides, you know she has a
chemical imbalance! Anyways, I'm
about to get outta here, i have
some other shit I gotta handle
A-S-A-fucking -P. Kevin talk to
your people in the streets, see if
you cant find out anything about a
high stakes poker game at Sam's
resturaunt from a few nights ago.
Can you do that? I am about to
head home for a bit, catch a few
Z's.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Yeah I can look into that-I'll
give you a shout in a few.
                                                            
KINTARO heads to ROMAN's desk and takes another shot of
Jonnie Walker.
                                                            

61.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yo Kev, you think he still has
feelings for his ex?
                                                            
                       KEVIN
I hope not. She is no good for him
at all.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Thats the first intelligent thing
you have said all day.
                                                            
K.C's cell phone rings
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Yo! Roman, what did you forget? I
swear, you would forget your head
if it wasnt attached. WHAT?! Don't
play with me, are you serious?!
SHIT! Ok..I'm comin out now.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (visibly shakn and
       bolts out ogf the
       door)
That bitch...
                                                            
                       KEVIN
What happened? What happened?
                                                            
Kevin follows KC outinto the street, where he finds KC
staring blankly at the driver side of his car. Kevin walks
around to see that there are two steak knives with condoms
on the handles stuck in the driver side tire. The air slowly
hisses from the tire.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (irritated)
Not a fuckin word from you, not
one!
                                                            
 
INT. ROMAN'S CAR - DAY
                                                            
ROMAN has left the club and his cell phone has been ringing
nonstop.
                                                            
it rings again, he has had enough
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (on cell)
What?!
                                                            

62.

                       VOICE
Whoa, easy killer! WHat flew up
your ass?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (FOURTH WALL BREAK)
The voice on the other end of the
phone is Jewan. He is the only one
out of the us that is married, and
he constantly catches hell for
it.We tease about being whipped,
although Jewan begs to differ. For
example, everytime Jewan wants to
hang out with the guys, his wife
gets sick,or just flat out gives
him grief to the point where Jewan
doesnt even want to go out
anymore. The guys wonder why he is
even with her at all; no female is
worth that kind of greif no matter
what month PLayboy model she was.
Yes, a real Playboy model.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
Is there someone in the car with
you?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
No.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
Who are you talking to then?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
What's up J? Sorry for blowin up
at you. Mara has been blowin up my
phone today, I got ALOT on my
plate. What's with the "private
number"? You know I hate answering
calls when i don't know who it is.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
You are talking to her again?! Its
been two years man! You still love
that crazy ass girl don't you?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I don't know.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
So whats the business brotha! I
havent talked to ya in a minute.
                                                            

63.

                       ROMAN
Eh, you know. Same shit different
toilet.(beat) Oh! We got this new
thing goin on at the club...
                                                            
ROMAN explains his day to JEWAN and all JEWAN seems to hear
is "escort girls" He repeats this very loud; loud enough for
his wife in the kitchen to hear.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
(shouts to the kitchen) Nothin
honey, just talkin to Roman.
(whispers back into the cell
phone) Escort girls?!? You are
turning that place into a strip
club arent you? I knew it (sighs)
my wife is never letin me over
there now.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
No,no,no. It's a favor for KC, a
chick he met owns a escort service
and she lost her lease, so the
club is just a very temporary
solution. Besides, your wife
wouldn't let you out of the house
if it were on fire. What's it
been? Two years since you really
hung out?
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
Nooo. It-- (contemplates) --has
it? I'll ask my Adrianne, she will
definitely know. Her crazy ass
prolly has it written down
somewhere.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
The prosecution rests.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
Whatever, I am the Master of my
Domain, all my subjects cower
before me.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Ok, then Attila, why is it that
you haven't been out in so long?
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
      (cooly)
It's a difficult job my friend.
Building an empire takes time,
hard work,and dedication. It is

                       JEWUAN (cont'd)
not for the faint haerted.
                                                            
Laughter in unison
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
Ok then, how about this. I'm goin
out tonight dammit! So come pick
me up when you are on your way to
the club.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
You remember the last time you
told me that? I drove to your
house and you gave me some lame
ass excuse about why you couldnt
go. Don't do that again. If you
try to, I am gonna clock you in
your skull, drug your wife, and
wreck the house to look like there
were signs of a struggle and drag
your ass out.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
      (chuckles)
Ok, I'm on it. Just be here.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (unconvinced)
Alright.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
      (hangs up)
Honey-
                                                            
JEWUAN is pacing back and forth in the living room trying to
come up with suitable lie.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN

Babe! Kevin got jumped on the west
end!! I need to do security

Enter JEWUAN's wife, ADRIANNE.
                                                            

65.

                       ADRIANNE
Yes sweetie? What do you want? I'm
cooking and I don't want to burn
the fish, so make it quick.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
      (aloof)
well babe. Roman is-
                                                            
                       ADRIANNE
NO!
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
How are you gonna cut me off like
that? I mean-
                                                            
                       ADRIANNE
      (walks back into
       the kitchen)
I don't want to hear anymore about
it!
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
But baby-
                                                            
                       ADRIANNE
      (O.S.)
I SAID NO!
                                                            
JEWUAN has a flash of ROMAN ransacking his home and
injecting ADRIANNE in the ass while she sleeps with a night
cocktail while laughing maniacally. The gears in his head
begin to turn and a look of determination can be seen
developing- by any means necessary, he will go out tonight!
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
UGH! You really should stop bein
like that.
                                                            
                       ADRIANNE
Like what?! if you think i am
gonna let you hang out with that
gigilo K.C. you have another think
coming. No Jewuan. NO!
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
First of all why you talkin to me
like a puppy?! That's all kind of
wrong.It's been a while since I
have seen the fellas, i just wanna
go shoot the shit wit them for a
minute, thats all, nothin
reckless.
                                                            

66.

                       ADRIANNE
Nothing reckless?! Do you remember
our anniversary? The "paint gun"
incident?
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
I didn't know it was loaded babe.
And you startled me.
                                                            
                       ADRIANNE
I had a bruise on my forehead for
weeks! NO! you're too old to be
out boozin all night. You can't
handle your alchohol anyways,
which leads you to dumb shit.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
Really.
                                                            
                       ADRIANNE
REALLY. So go get cleaned up,
dinner will be ready in a few
minutes.
                                                            
ADRIANNE abruptly walks out of the room before JEWUAN can
retort. He hangs his head and begrudgingly walks upstairs to
the bathroom mumbling to himself.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
      (to himself)
I can hold MY damn liquor! Miss
"drunk off of Boones Farm".
                                                            
He reaches for the door and cuts himself on a random
splinter on the doorframe.
                                                            
                       JEWUAN
Son of a mother!
                                                            
JEWUAN opens the cabinet and grabs a bandaid and looks for
the antiseptic ointment and stumbles upon a bottle of
ADRIANNE's sleep aid pills- WARNING- MAY CAUSE MARKED
DROWSINESS. DO NOT OPERATE A VEHICLE OR COMSUME ALCHOHOL
WHILE TAKING MEDICATION.
                                                            
JEWUAN closes the cabinet and starts to wash his hands,
still visibly irritated- suddenly, the "light bulb" goes
off.He smirks to himself in the mirror, opens the cabinet
and takes two pills from the bottle and tucks them in his
pocket and heads back downstairs.
                                                            

67.

                       JEWUAN
Hey babe, break out the Boones,
lets get crazy tonight!
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
INT. ROMAN'S BUILDING - NIGHT
                                                            
Roman is strolling down the hallway heading to his
apartment.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (sigh)
Finally. Maybe I can get a few
winks of sleep before the meeting
tonight.
                                                            
He unlocks the door and throws his keys on the hallway table
and walks to the kitchen.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Alexa, turn on the TV and the
lights.
                                                            
                       ALEXA
"Sure thing, Roman."
                                                            
                       BROADCASTER
...and the robberies continue in
the greater metro
area:banks,jewelry stores, and a
few homes in the Country Club of
the South have been cleaned out.
The authorities unfortunately have
been unable to secure any leads
and are currently working with the
GBI in hopes of finding something
involving this rash of robberies.
They really only know one thing
for sure: the robbers are all male
and they are very well trained. We
have here with us a Mr. Hucklburn,
whom was witness to the most
recent robbery at First National
bank, only blocks away from where
I am standing. Mr Huckleburn,can
you tell us anything about the
robbers?
                                                            
                       MR. HUCKLEBURN
      (excited to be on
       TV)
I'll tell you whut.I was more
            (MORE)

68.

                       MR. HUCKLEBURN (cont'd)
frightened than a long tailed cat
in a room full of rockin chairs!
One thing fer sure and two things
fer certain, theys gonna hit
another bank,and soon.Maw! Hi
Maw!!!
                                                            
                       BROADCASTER
..and there you have it. We here
at News 5 ask you the viewers, if
you have any sightings of a
robbery in progress, do not, i
repeat, do not attempt to stop
them. Contact the local
authorities. Back to you Stacy..
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Alexa, Turn off the TV.
                                                            
                       ALEXA
"Sure thing Roman."
                                                            
                       ROMAN
How does the Atlanta Police think
they are making the city feel safe
by reporting how inept they are at
police work? idiots.
                                                            
Someone knocks on his door
                                                            
                       ROMAN
who is it?
                                                            
theres no reply, and he is mumbling to himself about the
fact that he hopes its not Mara.He goes to the peephole to
look, but sees no one.
                                                            
someone knocks at the door again
                                                            
He looks again..and again sees nothing
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Damn kids..
                                                            
Someone knocks for a third time. roman swings the door open
and is yanked out by his shirt and thrown against the
hallway wall.
                                                            
                       ASSAILANT
Where is she!!?
                                                            

69.

                       ROMAN
      (struggles to get
       free)
Where is who?!!
                                                            
                       ASSAILANT
      (punches roman in
       the stomach)
Don't play dumb with me, Do you
know who I am?!
                                                            
ROMAN breaks his grip and puts his would be assailant in a
reverse arm lock which now has the unknown attacker facing
the floor, and in alot of pain.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
fucker! Do you know who I AM?!
                                                            
                       ASSAILANT
yeah,,,your name is (pain
increases as he struggles) Arrggh!
Roman. You used to date my
girlfriend Mara.
                                                            
Roman releases him
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Jonah? Why would she be here?
Theres no way she still has a
key..its been two years man! And
don't you think this is the wrong
way to go about things? Do you
realize that runnin up on someone
in the hallway is a sho nuff way
to get your ass beat! Look where
you are, MY BUILDING! If she came
here its on her own free will, you
need to project some of this shit
to her and not me...you don't know
where she is?
                                                            
                       JONAH
yeah i know, man, I love her so
much, I get crazy sometimes. No, I
can't find her...sdhe hasn't been
home all day.
                                                            
Not wanted to feel more of Roman's "fists of fury", he backs
off slowly and turns and walks away; visibly defeated.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
What a tool.
                                                            

70.

Roman turns to go back into his apartment, but not before
cautiously looking down the hallways for another "sneak
attack". He walks into his apartment and heads towards his
bedroom and passes his balcony and does a double take. There
is Mara, sitting on the balcony sobbing quietly.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Hey! What are you doin here?
                                                            
                       MARA
      (tearful)
Roman-
                                                            
MARA hands ROMAN a box with a large white bow around it.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
What is this?
                                                            
MARA is eerily silent. ROMAN opens the box slowly - there
are two severed fingers delicately placed on a pile of
playing cards.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (blank stare)
                                                            
                       MARA
I think they are my fathers.
                                                            
There is a small note in the box spattered with blood.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (reads)
"We assure you that if we do not
receive our money the next thing
we cut off is something he will
miss!"
                                                            
MARA erupts in uncontrollable tears.
                                                            
                       MARA
Roman there is something I have to
tell you about my father.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I don't know if I could take any
new information right now Mara.
                                                            
                       MARA
Do you ever wonder why my father
is rarely in town? And when he is
in town why he is rarely ever seen
by anyone but me?
                                                            

71.

                       ROMAN
Yeah, but i figured that was just
some Chinese business tradition or
something. I have seen him though,
so..
                                                            
                       MARA
But you are different Roman he
likes you, he considered you
family, before, well, you know.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Please...details,facts,the
point....
                                                            
                       MARA
Roman, my father is the last
living direct descendant of Hung
Wu.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Hung Wu? THE Hung Wu?!
                                                            
                       MARA
You know who I am talking about?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
You're Chinese Mara. And don't
take this the wrong way but I did
a little research on your family
when we first started dating, i
wanted to surprise you with this
huge plaque of your lineage. But I
could only go back so far, i could
never understand why. This makes
sense.
                                                            
                       MARA
My father is a very important man
Roman. I cannot tell you anymore
than that.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Ok. What we need to to do is get
focused. i need to make some
calls.
                                                            
                       MARA
I can't get you involved in this,-
its too much. It's just too much.
                                                            

72.

                       ROMAN
Listen. We may have had our
issues, but I will always have
your back. Always.
                                                            
                       MARA
But Roman, I-
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (interrupts)
'but" nothing. here, have a seat
and I'll go make a few calls. Oh
and by the way, your man is
looking for you.
                                                            
                       MARA
How would you know that?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Uh, because he jumped me in the
hallway.
                                                            
                       MARA
I'm sorry.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
No-HE is sorry. I almost broke his
fucking arm.
                                                            
                       MARA
You what?!
                                                            
                       ROMAN
We will handle that nasty piece of
business later. One thing at a
time.
                                                            
                       MARA
Roman-
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I have to say even with this stuff
with your dad going on, that
choade boyfriend of yours is still
gonna catch a bad one-
                                                            
                       MARA
Roman-
                                                            

73.

                       ROMAN
I mean everyone has their limits
of what they are willing to put up
with, and I am a race car in "The
Red", Mara. that's all i am sayin-
                                                            
                       MARA
baby-
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (flustered)
Shit! Where is my damn phone?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
ROMAN! I love you.
                                                            
ROMAN is frozen.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Excuse me?
                                                            
                       MARA
I am not happy Roman. I have been
thinking about what you said the
other day.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
      (apprehensive)
OK-
                                                            
                       MARA
it's always been you.ALWAYS. Don't
you ever wonder why i always
stayed in contact with you?
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I assumed you were just crazy.
                                                            
                       MARA
Roman! I am trying to be honest
here.When I was on the patio I was
thinking about my life. Actually I
have been for a while, this whole
situation has me really thinking.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
ok, listen. Mara, we can't get
have this conversation right now.
                                                            
                       MARA
I know, i just had to say it, just
in case i never get a chance to.
                                                            

74.

                       ROMAN
Don't talk like that, we are gonna
get through this. just give me a
minute to make-
                                                            
ROMANS cell rings.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Yo-what up. i was just gonna call

                       MARA
Ok. roman, be careful.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
yeah.
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE TO:
                                                            
 
EXT. ZEN CAFE - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
K.C and MONA walk towards ZEN CAFE. The motif is that of a
Zen garden with the sand area in the middle with the tables
positioned on a beautifully done wooden floor, with strong
beams and a myriad of oriental decor.
                                                            
                       MONA
Wow. How did you find this place?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
A friend of mine owns it.
                                                            

75.

MONA bows deeply and graciously, SAM returns the compliment.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
Well lets get to it my friend!
                                                            
SAM ushers the pair to a very secluded part of the
restaurant.
                                                            
                       MONA
This is nice.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
yeah not many people get to see
this part of the restaurant.
                                                            
                       MONA
oh really?
                                                            

76.

                       KINTARO/K.C.
yeah, stick with me kid, I'll take
you places
                                                            
                       MONA

INT. SECLUDED BOOTH AT ZEN CAFE - NIGHT
                                                            
                       MONA
So to what do I owe the pleasure
of this lovely dinner?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Well I wanted to talk to you about
a few things.
                                                            
                       MONA
Like?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
The "business".
                                                            
                       MONA
What about it?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
How exactly did you get started? I
mean, if that is not too personal.
                                                            
                       MONA
No worries, it's kind of family
business.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
"family"? like "an offer you can't
refuse"?
                                                            
                       MONA
Somethin' like that.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Ahh so you are in the 'triangle of
trust"-gotcha.
                                                            
                       MONA
So, do you even know the history
of concubinage?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
"Women of the night"? Not
specifically, no.
                                                            

77.

                       MONA
in ancient times, cocubines or
"women of the night" as you so
eloquently labeled them, were the
standard.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Ok-
                                                            
                       MONA
Even back then, SOMEONE had to get
the women to the elderstatemen and
the rich, right?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
Right.
                                                            
                       MONA
So.....
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
So----
                                                            
                       MONA
You're goodlooking, but you arent
that bright are you?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
You know, insults really aren't
the way to go.
                                                            
                       MONA
I'm just sayin'.
                                                            
MONA's phoone rings, but she ignores it.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
So you're trying to tell me- that
this business of yours goes back
THAT far?!
                                                            
                       MONA
Even though i shouldn't be- indeed
I am sir.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
And this was handed to you? Pardon
my ignorance but I thought that
business dealings were primarily
dealt with by men in China...no
offense.
                                                            

78.

                       MONA
None taken. but in this situation
being the only child, things sorta
change. And to be honest with you,
I really wanna get out of it.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
if only it were that easy huh? i
bet thats a shitload of
responsibility.
                                                            
                       MONA
it is.
                                                            
MONA's phone rings once again.
                                                            
                       MONA
I have to take this.
                                                            
K.C excuses himself from the table to give MONA some
privacy.
                                                            
MONA's voice goes from light,airy, raspyness of a female, to
the low, coarse, rumble of a man's voice
                                                            
                       MONA
Jesus! What do you want.
                                                            
                       CALLER
We have a situation.
                                                            
                       MONA
Expound.
                                                            
                       CALLER
The time we planned is not going
to work, the numbers aren't there.
The payout will not be worth the
effort.
                                                            
                       MONA
I do not pay you to think, follow
my instructions-make this the LAST
time I say that.
                                                            
"MONA" hangs up, and gets back into character. K.C returns
with a bottle of warm sake and two cups.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (looks around)
Everything ok? I thought I heard
someone else in here, for a
second...
                                                            

79.

                       MONA
Yes. Thanks for asking.
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (shrugs it off)
So where were we? besides the biz,
i really wanted to talk about the
elephant in the room.
                                                            
                       MONA
excuse me?
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
The OBVIOUS sexual tension that is
going on between us. I mean i have
this effect on all women, i am
used to it, it has to be a new
sensation for you though..but I
will walk you through it
                                                            
Enter SAM.
                                                            
                       SAM
My freings! hot pot! And
Kintaro-san... EXTRA noodle for
you!
                                                            
                       KINTARO/K.C.
      (elated)
My MAN! You KNOW how I love that
extra noodle!
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE TO:
                                                            
 
INT. 7PM-CLUB GENKII - NIGHT
                                                            
BARTENDERS wander in one at a time to set up for the
evening.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
hey guys. Remember how busy we are
going to be this weekend. So stay
focused on the task at hand and
PLEASE watch your pours. no double
shots for half the price.
                                                            
There is random compliance and mumbling.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
There seem to be questions.
                                                            

80.

                       BARTENDER #1
Roman you used to be a bartend,
you know the drunker people get
the better we get tipped.
                                                            
Everyone agrees in random unison.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Valid point. Ok, just use
discretion and try not to pour me
into bankruptcy!
                                                            
the staff laughs.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
I'm trusting you guys, but I will
also be watching!
                                                            
KEVIN enters.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
What it is home-skillet.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Just gettin shit together. hey-
Sade- can you make sure everyone's
tills are correct for me?
                                                            
                       SADE
no problem.
                                                            
KEVIN and ROMAN walk to VIP for a little privacy.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
So, what did you find out?
                                                            
                       KEVIN
I got good news and bad news.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Dude, I just saw God-knows-who's
fingers in a beautiful box today I
don't have time for games.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
The Ming Dragons have him, and he
owes them a shit ton of money.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
The fucking Ming-Dragons?!?! They
don't fuck around! thats the damn
BASIS of the triads Kevin!
Sonofabitch...the good news?
                                                            

81.

                       KEVIN
The Ming-Dragons have him and he
owes them a shit ton of money.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
You just said that.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
I know, there's no such thing as
good or bad news. there's just
news.We now know who has him at
least.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Really. You are gonna fortune
cookie me right now?! You are goin
the right way for a punch in the
fuckin mouth.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Well, that's all the info i could
find.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
Any ideas of where they might have
him? The amount of money he owes?
Anything of any use.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
They keep moving him, so the
location is a mystery, even for my
contacts.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
So basically you have no news.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Basically, but not really.
                                                            
                       ROMAN
What the fuck man. i don't
appreciate how "whatever" you are
about this situation, you do know
that this situation effects you as
well don't you? if you really
don't have any news, then say so.
I don't have time for smart ass
remarks that do nothing to help
the situation. this shit is wicked
serious.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
I know it is.
                                                            

82.

                       ROMAN
Then why are you giving me these
half-ass findings?
                                                            
                       KEVIN
look, i am doing YOU a favor. i am
doing YOUR footwork, while you
play house with your darling
'Mara".
                                                            
                       ROMAN
You know what. Don't do me anymore
fucking favors you fuckin
dousche-barrell. All the shit I
have done for you? And you come at
me like that? really?
                                                            
ROMAN walks away in disgust.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
INT. GENKII NIGHTCLUB - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Look-I can't really talk right
now, yes I am still here, we have
the rendezves tonight ask your
questions then.
                                                            
KEVIN hangs up and pours himself a drink from the bar and at
just that moment SADE, a bartender, enters.
                                                            
                       SADE
Hello.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Hello, miss. Ready for the
opening?
                                                            
                       SADE
As ready as I can be.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
It should prove to be an
interesting opening, to say the
least.
                                                            
                       SADE
How so?
                                                            

83.

                       KEVIN
High end consumers for the after
parties, athletes, models, this
will the the "place to be".
                                                            
                       SADE
Well, it always is the place to
be.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Indeed.
                                                            
                       SADE
Well, if you will excuse me..
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Oh, of course. i would'nt want to
keep you from your appointed
duties. I will see you later .
                                                            
                       SADE
      (under her breath)
Not if I see you first
doucshe-monkey.

WAREHOUSE-SAME TIME
                                                            
The clicking of gun clips being loaded are heard as the
camera zooms in through a shaded window of the warehouse.
The reveal is three suited individuals in Kabuki theater
masks.
                                                            
                       PERSON#2
Do we really have to wear these
masks all the time? I can barely
breathe in this thing.
                                                            
                       PERSON #3 (o.s.)
This is the last time I am going
to say it, it is important that if
this thing goes wrong, just like
the bank job, that NO ONE can
identify each other, is that
understood?
                                                            
                       PERSON#2
I get that, but--
                                                            
                       PERSON #3 (o.s.)
"but" what?! it's not up for
discussion. Ever heard the
expression "there's no honor among
            (MORE)

                       PERSON #3 (cont'd)
thieves?" How do i know one of you
wont sell my ass up the fucking
river to get out of doin jail
time?
                                                            
                       PERSON #1
Why don't we stay on task, and
stop bickering like a bunch of
little school girls, huh? Ok,
this time we need to be more
efficient.
                                                            
                       PERSON#2
Agreed. Shootouts will not always
result in escape.
                                                            
                       PERSON #3 (o.s.)
      (via speaker phone
       on a cell phone)
this is a big deal we can't afford
to make any mistakes on this. The
information we are going after
isnt something to be trifled with,
it could cripple the entire triad
organization for this region. And
its not going to be easy.
                                                            
                       PERSON #1
Yes. Be aware, the old man has
people in place that Roman doesn't
even know about- to protect what
we are going for, keep your wits
about you at all times.
                                                            
                       PERSON #3 (o.s.)
Does everyone know their
assignments.
                                                            
Everyone is in agreement.
                                                            
                       PERSON #1
Ok, lets get it done, NO MISTAKES.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
ZEN CAFE
