Lost in Lego
by Chazbone (anthony.rea@asu.edu)

Rated: G   Genre: Animation   User Review: ***1/2
Its supposed to be a short. The lego fight scene is more detailed, it was just to confusing to write out. But I do know what I have planned to do in my head. I plan to create a whole lego set of either tropical scene or something star-wars esque, whatever is cheaper! Would like some feedback on the story and idea though thank you!

FADE IN:

INT. KITCHEN - DAY
                                                            
A lone cook sits in a kitchen cooking or washing something.
He seems bored from his job and isn't paying much attention
to it. A few moments later a fellow cook enters and begins
to chop up food.
                                                            
                       COOK 1
I'm so tired, when's this shift
over?
                                                            
                       COOK 2
I don't know, pray to god soon. If
i'm forced to wash another
vegetable, i'll scream! Im a
cook, not a dishwasher!
                                                            
                       COOK 1
Relax! It's a job, be happy.
Besides for what they're paying me
i'd be happy to wash dishes.
                                                            
They're Boss enters.
                                                            
                       BOSS
What are you two numb skulls up
to? Quit talking and get to work.
                                                            
                       COOK 1
Excuse me sire, but what exactly
do you want me to do?
                                                            
                       BOSS
Watch it punk. What is today
moron?
                                                            
                       COOK 2
      (enthusiastic)
Friday!
                                                            
                       BOSS
That's right circus midget, and
what is it that happens on Friday?
                                                            
                       COOK 2
Um....
                                                            
Cook 2 looks over to Cook 1.
                                                            

2.

                       COOK 1
Friday means we don't see you till
Sunday?
                                                            
                       BOSS
Yes, thank god for that. But it
also means the produce comes in.
Tomorrows seafood Sunday, get the
fish on ice then you two re-re's
can go home. Now go get out of my
sight!
                                                            
Boss exits.
                                                            
                       COOK 1
Someone should poison his food!
                                                            
                       COOK 2
Come on, i'll finish the dishes.
You go get the fish.
                                                            
Cook 1 exits.
                                                            
 
INT. BACKSIDE OF SHOP - DAY
                                                            
Cook 1 opens the door to find a box of fish. He sits down
on the box to take a quick rest and water break. He briefly
stares into the sun. Remembering what he was sent to do he
stands up and picks up the box and exiting.
                                                            
 
INT. FREEZER - DAY
                                                            
Cook 1 recklessly sets the box down knocking a fish out. The
fish slams hard against the table spitting out a colorful
stone.
                                                            
                       COOK 1
What the....Hey, come here.
                                                            
Cook 2 enters.
                                                            
                       COOK 2
What?
      (gem catches his
       eye)
What the heck is that?
                                                            
                       COOK 1
I dunno, it just came out of the
fish.
                                                            

3.

                       COOK 2
Came out of the fish, what? It
looks expensive, lemme see it.
                                                            
                       COOK 1
I dunno if I should touch it, what
if its magical?
                                                            
                       COOK 2
Don't be silly, go ahead grab it.
                                                            
Cook 1 slowly goes to grab the rock. When he touches it
everything suddenly turns into Lego's.
                                                            
 
INT. LEGO LAND - DAY
                                                            
The two are no longer in the real world, the Lego setting
has changed from the kitchen to something mysterious.
                                                            
                       LEGO COOK 1
      (Astonished)
What the heck? What happened? I
told you it was magical.
                                                            
                       LEGO COOK 2
Oh my god dude, what did you do
man?
                                                            
                       LEGO COOK 1
You told me to touch it, it's your
fault!
                                                            
                       LEGO COOK 2
Come on this isn't funny, I got a
date later. Change it back!
                                                            
Lego Boss enters.
                                                            
                       LEGO BOSS
Alright what the hell did you two
cavemen do now? How come I'm a
Lego?
                                                            
                       LEGO COOK 2
      (Pointing to Lego
       Cook 1)
He did it!
                                                            
                       LEGO BOSS
I swear this is the last time I
let you ruin my day. Your fired
buddy!
                                                            

4.

                       LEGO COOK 1
      (Fed up)
Oh really, well i'm sick of you
treating us like crap. I think
you're fired.
                                                            
A Lego fight ensues with Lego Cook 1 flying scissor kick
Lego Boss in the face, with dramatic results. Eventually
Lego Boss is decapitated.
                                                            
                       LEGO BOSS
      (Just the head)
Look what you did now, my frigging
body's seperated from my dang
head! You jerk-off!
                                                            
Lego Cook 2 in shock trips backwards landing on the rock.
                                                            
 
INT. FREEZER - DAY
                                                            
The scene is back to normal except the Boss's head is still
separated from his body.
                                                            
                       BOSS
      (Just the head)
Oh my god! What did you do now?
Fix it, for the love of god fix
me!
                                                            
                       COOK 1
Ha ha ha! I dunno, I kinda like it
this way.
                                                            
                       COOK 2
Come on man, this is serious, fix
him!
                                                            
                       COOK 1
First, how about I get my job
back?
                                                            
                       BOSS
Fine, whatever you say!
                                                            
                       COOK 1
And a raise, for both of us!
                                                            
                       BOSS
You sneaky prick, fine. Just get
my head on my body.
                                                            

5.

                       COOK 1
And you need to be nicer.
                                                            
                       COOK 2
Yeah, a lot nicer!
                                                            
                       COOK 1
And start using tic-tacs.
                                                            
                       BOSS
If you two don't fix this, I
promise you i'll find a way to
make your life a living hell!
                                                            
                       COOK 1
Worse then it is?
                                                            
                       BOSS
Fix it!
                                                            
Cook 1 finds the rock and touches it.
                                                            
 
INT. LEGO LAND - DAY
                                                            
Cook 1 finds the severed head and picks it up, slowly
reuniting it with its body. Cook 2 then hits the stone
again.
                                                            
 
INT. FREEZER - DAY
                                                            
The Boss fixes himself up.
                                                            
                       BOSS
What the hell was that?
                                                            
                       COOK 1
I dunno.
                                                            
                       COOK 2
Magic!
                                                            
The Boss stares at the two suspiciously.
                                                            
                       BOSS
Get back to work, and stop fiddle
farting around!
                                                            
Boss exits.
                                                            
                       COOK 1
Now do you believe me?
                                                            

6.

                       COOK 2
Yeah, must have been some ancient
voodoo magic.
                                                            
                       COOK 1
Lets just forget about it and get
back to work. It's almost over.
                                                            
Cook 1 turns his back to the stone and Cook 2. Cook 2 pulls
out a napkin and slowly wraps the stone up, placing it in
his back pocket.
                                                            
 
INT. BACKSIDE OF SHOP - DAY
                                                            
A car driving by wakes up Cook 1. He realizes he was having
a dream. The door opens and Cook 2 pops his head out.
                                                            
                       COOK 2
Dude I have been done for ten
minutes, wheres the produce?
                                                            
                       COOK 1
Crap, must have dozed off. Don't
worry I got it.
                                                            
                       COOK 2
Whatever. Lets just get back to
work, it's almost over.
                                                            
Cook 1 pauses for a moment then follows Cook 2 inside the
door.
                                                            
 
INT. INSIDE OF SHOP - DAY
                                                            
The camera closes up on the back of Cook 2. A bulge is
noticeable and a napkin protrudes from his back pocket. Cook
1 sets the fish down in the exact same way from his dream.
                                                            


FADE OUT.
