PS EPISODE 2: YOU'RE HIRED

FADE IN:

INT. FRONT OFFICE OF PS - DAY
                                                            
Gina and Maria are talking behind the front desk; Celia
enters:
                                                            
                       CELIA
      (Annoyed)
I want to go home.
                                                            
                       GINA
It's 9 in the morning, you just
got here.
                                                            
                       CELIA
That doesn't change the fact that
I want to go home.
                                                            
                       GINA
Well.......
                                                            
                       CELIA
Well what? You're hiding
something. What is it? What is
going on?
                                                            
                       CELIA
      (To Maria)
What is she hiding?
                                                            
                       MARIA
I have no idea.
                                                            
Gina gives Maria a look. Celia notices.
                                                            
                       CELIA
      (To Maria)
It's about you, what did you do?
                                                            
                       MARIA
I didn't do anything.
                                                            
                       CELIA
Maria.....
                                                            
                       GINA
She went on a date with Shawn.

                       MARIA
Gina!!
                                                            
                       GINA
Oh be quiet, you were going to
tell her anyway.
                                                            
                       CELIA
      (To Maria)
OK, wait, I thought you said you
wouldn't go out with him again to
save your life.
                                                            
                       MARIA
I did, but that was 2 years ago,
it doesn't count.
                                                            
                       CELIA
I guess that's good to know for
future reference.
                                                            
                       MARIA
Yeah. Anyway, believe it or not he
took me out on a real date.
                                                            
                       CELIA
So, where did we go?
                                                            
                       MARIA
He took me to dinner at Le Cordon
Bleu.
                                                            
                       CELIA
What?!
                                                            
                       MARIA
Yeah, then we went dancing at Club
Mamba.
                                                            
                       CELIA
Are you serious?
                                                            
                       MARIA
Yes. And when He dropped me off at
my house, he gave me a kiss on the
cheek and said
                                                            
Scene switches to Shawn and Joshua getting out of Shawn's
car and walking towards the office of PS.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
"Thank you for letting me do this
for you tonight. It was the most
fun I've had in a while and I

                       SHAWN (cont'd)
really mean that."
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
What did she say?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Nothing, she just smiled and
kissed me.
                                                            
Shawn opens the door and he and Joshua walk through.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Morning ladies
                                                            
                       CELIA
      (Confused)
Ok, what'd I miss?
                                                            
                       GINA
You wouldn't believe us if we told
you.
                                                            
 
INT. JOSHUA'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Celia is lurking outside of Joshua's Office while he is on
the phone.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (To Celia)
You can come in you know.
                                                            
Celia enters Joshua's office and takes a seat.
                                                            
Joshua ends his phone call.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (To Celia)
Hello, I'm Joshua, the new parking
manager.
                                                            
                       CELIA
I'm Celia.
                                                            
Awkward silence.
                                                            
                       CELIA
So...........you're the new boss.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Yes; that I am.
                                                            

4.

Awkward silence
                                                            
                       CELIA
I don't think I'm doing this
right, am I?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Well, that all depends on what it
is you're trying to do.
                                                            
                       CELIA
I was going for small talk.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Yeah, I'm going to have to say
that it's not working out all that
well. We could start again if you
like, I could give you some
pointers.
                                                            
                       CELIA
No, I don't think
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (Interrupting
       Celia)
I hear that Officer Bryant guy is
good at it, maybe he could teach
you a little. I could call him in.
                                                            
Joshua reaches for his phone to make the call. Celia stops
him.
                                                            
                       CELIA
No, no, no, you don't have to do
that. We'll just end this now
before I embarrass myself any more
than I already have. I'm just
going to go back to work now.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Are you sure, because this is fun
for me, the most entertainment I
had all day.
                                                            
                       CELIA
It's like 9 o'clock, the day
hasn't even begun yet.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Yeah, but it doesn't mean that
this can't be my highlight.
                                                            

5.

                       CELIA
I'm going now.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Your choice.
                                                            
Celia Exits, Shawn enters.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Hey boss man, when does our new
trainee get here?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (Amused)
Don't call me that.
                                                            
                       CELIA
What? Boss man?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Yeah.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Why?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
I don't know. It weirds me out.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Ok, Josh, when does Daniel get
here.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Danny will be here about lunch
time, so we'll eat then you can
train and go home.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
So I'm in this early on my day off
because.......
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
We'll start with A) Everyone else
here hates me. B) You get a free
lunch. C)Everyone else here hates
me. And Finally D) I'm the boss.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
You had me at free lunch.
                                                            
We move to the front office of P.S. with Celia, Maria and
Gina.
                                                            

6.

                       GINA
      (To Celia)
So how does your story go
                                                            
                       CELIA
Huh?
                                                            
                       MARIA
Everyone so far has a story about
their first meeting with Joshua,
what's yours.
                                                            
                       CELIA
You ever hear of Armageddon?
                                                            
                       MARIA
The movie?
                                                            
Gina and Celia shoot Maria a look.
                                                            
                       MARIA
What? It was a movie.
                                                            
                       GINA
It's like the end of the world or
something.
                                                            
                       CELIA
Yeah, it was a lot like that.
                                                            
                       MARIA
It was a good movie too.
                                                            
                       GINA
Let it go Maria, just let it go.
      (To Celia)
So was it really that bad?
                                                            
                       CELIA
Yeah.
                                                            
                       MARIA
Did you almost get fired?
                                                            
                       CELIA
No.
                                                            
                       OFFICER BRYANT
      (From the Control
       Center)
Well you should have been.
                                                            
Officer Bryant begins to laugh.
                                                            

7.

                       CELIA
      (To Officer Bryant)
Shut up O.B.
                                                            
                       MARIA
Anyway, I got you beat. Every time
I have a conversation with that
man I almost get fired.
                                                            
                       CELIA
He's only been here twenty-four
hours!
                                                            
                       MARIA
What can I say, I work fast.
                                                            
Shawn is walking from Joshua's office through the front
office of P.S.
                                                            
                       GINA
      (Points to Shawn)
That's what he said.
                                                            
Maria gasps and Celia laughs, Shawn just looks confused and
continues to walk out of the front door. Maria then throws a
pen at Gina.
                                                            
                       CELIA
What about you G?
                                                            
                       MARIA
Yeah, you never gave me the full
details about your first time.
                                                            
Danny enters the office unnoticed.
                                                            
                       GINA
It went fine.
                                                            
                       MARIA
What'd he say?
                                                            
                       CELIA
What'd you say?
                                                            
                       DANNY
Uhm...excuse me.
                                                            
                       GINA
Nothing worth repeating.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Could I get some help please?
                                                            

8.

Shawn enters the front office from outside.
                                                            
                       MARIA
      (Carefully)
You sure?
                                                            
                       GINA
Yeah.
                                                            
                       DANNY
      (Clears throat)
Hello. Could someone help me
please?
                                                            
                       CELIA
We are sorry about that, didn't
even see you standing there.
                                                            
Maria turns and sees Danny, she pulls Gina to the walkway to
the back office.
                                                            
                       MARIA
      (Quietly but
       excited)
Oh my god, it's him!
                                                            
 
INT. JOSHUA'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Danny enters Joshua's office.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Hey buddy!!
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (Excited)
Danny
                                                            
Joshua gets up and gives Danny a hug.
                                                            
                       DANNY
It's been too long man, way too
long.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
I know man, I know.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
      (Clears throat)
                                                            

9.

                       JOSHUA
Oh yeah, Danny, this is Shawn. He
is going to be the main person
training you.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Yeah we met briefly outside.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Hey, good to officially meet you.
      (Extends hand)
                                                            
Danny gives Joshua a look.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Sorry I don't do handshakes.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
      (Looks at his own
       hand)
Ok.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Come here buddy.
                                                            
Danny gives Shawn a hug. Shawn looks at Danny funny.
                                                            
                       DANNY
What you're not the hugging type?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
No, I mean, it's not that. Have we
met before? You look familiar.
                                                            
                       DANNY
I don't think so.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (To Danny)
So, how you been?
                                                            
Danny closes the door to Joshua's office. We move to the
front office of P.S.
                                                            
                       CELIA
So why the freak out Maria.
      (Smiling)
I mean, it's not like you normally
need a reason or anything.
                                                            
Maria gives a playful punch to Celia.
                                                            

10.

                       MARIA
      (Playing Mad)
Shut up, tu estupido.
                                                            
                       GINA
So are you going to tell us now,
or later after we bug you to
death.
                                                            
                       MARIA
You remember yesterday?
                                                            
                       CELIA
No, wasn't here, remember.
                                                            
                       MARIA
Well yesterday, he passed by the
office and for some reason I
couldn't take my eyes of off him.
                                                            
                       GINA
Oh, that's the guy Shawn was
talking about yesterday.
                                                            
                       MARIA
      (Shamefully
       nodding her head)
Mmm hmm.
                                                            
                       CELIA
Believe it or not, I'm still
confused.
                                                            
Mrs. James comes over from the secretary station to the desk
in the front office.
                                                            
                       MRS. JAMES
Do one of you girls mind taking a
walk? I need this envelope
delivered to the Walsh Building.
Maria, you're not doing anything,
could you?
                                                            
Four officers enter the front office of P.S., each one is
carrying an orange object (a boot).
                                                            
                       MARIA
Actually I have to show the
officers where Joshua wants to put
the new boots.
      (To the officers)
Follow me please.
                                                            

11.

Maria and the officers walk out of the front office through
the back doors.
                                                            
                       GINA
I'd be happy to make that delivery
for you Wilma.
                                                            
                       MRS. JAMES
Oh no, don't worry about it
sweetie, you get back to work.
It's not that important, I'll just
inter-office it.
                                                            
                       GINA
Are you sure, because I really
don't mind going.
                                                            
                       MRS. JAMES
No really, it's ok.
                                                            
Mrs. James drops the envelope in the outgoing mail and
returns to her desk.
                                                            
                       CELIA
She really does not like Maria
does she?
                                                            
                       GINA
Nope.
                                                            
                       CELIA
What did Maria ever do to her?
                                                            
                       GINA
I wish I knew Celia, I wish I
knew.
                                                            
 
INT. FRONT OFFICE OF PS - DAY
                                                            
A Chinese delivery guy shows up with food. Joshua comes out
to meet him. He grabs the food and takes it into his office
with Shawn and Danny waiting.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Here's food.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Good, I'm starved.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
So how is the training going?
                                                            

12.

                       SHAWN
It is going well for now.
                                                            
                       DANNY
I'll be right back, I have to get
some sauce.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Here, they put some extra in the
bag.
                                                            
                       DANNY
No, I need some real sauce.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
You still carry that stuff around
with you?
                                                            
                       DANNY
All the time man. I'll be back.
                                                            
Danny walks out of Joshua's Office to the front office when
he walks in on the girl's conversation.
                                                            
                       MARIA
      (Sarcastically)
Thanks for asking us for lunch.
                                                            
                       CELIA
I know. I guess they think we
don't eat.
                                                            
                       GINA
Well in all fairness you don't eat
Celia. I mean we order food and
you get a grilled cheese
sandwhich.
                                                            
                       CELIA
I like grilled cheese.
                                                            
                       GINA
And that's fine except you only
eat half of it.
                                                            
                       CELIA
That was
                                                            
                       FRANCINE
      (From inside of
       her office.
       Pissed off, on
       the phone)
YOU WHAT?! HOW COULD YOU SCREW
            (MORE)

13.

                       FRANCINE (cont'd)
THAT UP?!
                                                            
Francine opens her door violently and then slams it closed
before walking out of the front office door. Joshua and
Shawn rush to the front.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
What the hell was that?
                                                            
                       MARIA
Your boss.
                                                            
 
INT. BACK OFFICE OF P.S. - DAY
                                                            
Shawn and Danny are in the back office where Shawn is
continuing Danny's training.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
So this is where we keep all of
the permits that we give out.
                                                            
Shawn leads Danny to another section of the office.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
This is where we keep the
envelopes the permits get mailed
in. Easy enough, right?
                                                            
                       DANNY
Yeah, simple stuff, although all
you did was show me where
eveything is.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
There is a method to my madness.
Tomorrow we will cover the
computer work you have to learn.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Ok, cool. Is that going to be a
one day thing too?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
More like a 1 year thing.
                                                            
Shawn and Danny walk to the front office. Maria studies the
two as the come from the back.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Guys this is Danny. He is the
newest memeber to our family.
                                                            

14.

                       MARIA
Family, this is one sick twisted
family. Francine the mom, Joshua
the dad.
                                                            
                       GINA
      (Interrupting
       Maria)
Maria, the child of the corn.
                                                            
Shawn laughs.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Well I'm going to go see dad real
quick, I'll be right back.
                                                            
                       DANNY
I won't be here, I'm out. See you
guys later.
                                                            
Danny leaves and Shawn walks to Joshua's office. When he
gets inside Joshua;s phone rings.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Hello, hi ma, how's your day
going?
      (Pauses)
It's not too bad here, especially
since Danny is here now.
                                                            
Shawn goes to leave but Joshua motions for him not to go.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
No ma, he's not my only friend, I
made one.
      (Laughs)
Thanks ma, well that one friend
just walked in so I'm going to
talk to you later. Love you.
                                                            
Joshua hangs up the phone.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
So you ready to get out of here?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
You know you don't have to drive
me right?
                                                            

15.

                       SHAWN
Actually I do. You don't have a
car, Danny already left, and if I
recall correctly: everyone else
here hates you.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (Smiling)
Oh yeah. In that case let's go.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Can I ask you a personal question?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Shoot.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
You talk to your mom a lot?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Everyday.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Really?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Yeah.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
      (Evenly)
That's cool.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Shawn?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Yeah?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
You ok?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Yeah.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
You wanna talk about it?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Talk about what?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Why you asked me that question.
                                                            

16.

                       SHAWN
I was just curious.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Do you talk to your mom?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Not as much as you do.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
How is she doing?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
She was a little down last time I
checked, but she's still alive.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
You sure you don't want to talk
about it?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Really Josh, there is nothing to
talk about.
                                                            
Shawn walks out of Joshua's office, Joshua follows.
                                                            
 
INT. JOSHUA'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Joshua is sitting at his desk working on his computer.
Francine pops her head in his office.
                                                            
                       FRANCINE
You ready?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (Confused)
For?
                                                            
                       FRANCINE
It's Wednesday.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
I'm aware.
                                                            
                       FRANCINE
I forgot to tell you didn't I.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
I'm betting you did.
                                                            

17.

                       FRANCINE
It's time for the Wednesday
morning meeting.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
That's nice.
                                                            
                       FRANCINE
Let's go.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
I go?
                                                            
                       FRANCINE
Yeah, all the supervisors go.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Oh no.
                                                            
                       FRANCINE
Oh yes, let's go!
                                                            
Joshua gets up to go. Joshua and Francine begin to walk out.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
What else have you not told me?
                                                            
                       FRANCINE
I don't know but I'm pretty sure
you'll find out soon enough.
                                                            
Joshua and Francine exit to the Wednesday morning meeting
through the front door.
                                                            
                                         FRONT OFFICE
                                                            
                       GINA
I love Wednesday's. They are my
absolute favorite day of the week.
                                                            
                       DANNY
And why is that Gina?
                                                            
                       GINA
Because Danny boy, of the
Wednesday morning meeting.
                                                            
                       DANNY
The Wednesday morning meeting?
                                                            
                       GINA
Yes, the Wednesday morning
meeting. This is when all the
supervisors in this department
            (MORE)

18.

                       GINA (cont'd)
leave us alone for two glorious
hours.
                                                            
                       DANNY
And they only do this on
Wednesday's?
                                                            
                       GINA
That would be why it is called the
Wednesday morning meeting and not
the Tuesday morning meeting or
even the Friday morning meeting.
It is the
                                                            
                       DANNY
      (Interrupting Gina)
Wednesday morning meeting. I got
it.
                                                            
Celia busts through the front door to the office.
                                                            
                       CELIA
It's Wednesday!
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Believe it or not this has already
been covered.
                                                            
                       CELIA
But, it's, Wednesday!
                                                            
                       GINA
      (Excited)
I know!
                                                            
                       DANNY
So G, where's Maria.
                                                            
                       GINA
I don't know, I'm going to call
her.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
No need. Josh said she called out.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Don't call him that to his face.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
What?
                                                            

19.

                       DANNY
Josh, he hates it.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Boss man he hates, but he didn't
say anything when I called him
Josh before.
                                                            
                       DANNY
You, called him Josh, to his face?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Yeah.
                                                            
                       DANNY
And he heard you?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Yeah.
                                                            
                       DANNY
      (In disbelief)
And you're still walking?
                                                            
                       GINA
How bad does he hate it?
                                                            
                       DANNY
Last time I called him that, the
only time I called him that, he
took a swing at me, and I am not
talking about a playful swing
between friends. He was head
hunting.
                                                            
                       CELIA
      (Laughing)
Oh my God, what did you do?
                                                            
                       DANNY
Ducked, apologized and promised to
never do it again.
                                                            
Someone walks through the front door.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
And here comes our first customer
of the day. Why don't you handle
this one Danny.
                                                            
                       DANNY
I haven't finished training yet.
                                                            

20.

                       SHAWN
This is part of it.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Which part?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
The part where you are screwed.
                                                            
                       DANNY
      (Sarcastically)
Oh you are funny, so funny.
      (Normal)
Hi ma'am, how can I help you this
morning?
                                                            
                       AMANDA
Well I am here for a meeting with
Senior VP Mark Williams. He said
for me to come here and get a
parking pass for my car. Am I even
in the right building, this place
is so big, I've already been
walking around for twenty minutes.
                                                            
                       DANNY
You have been told the right,
thing, this is the building in
which you would get that pass. I
just need you to fill out a form
with your car information.
                                                            
Danny hands the form to Amanda. Amanda begins to fill the
form out.
                                                            
                       DANNY
While you do that, I am going to
get your pass ready.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
Ok.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
      (Quietly to Danny)
It's very rare that someone will
tell their guest to stop here and
get a pass.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Really?
                                                            

21.

                       CELIA
      (Together w/ Gina
       and Shawn)
Yeah.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
Ok, I'm all done.
                                                            
Danny looks over the sheet.
                                                            
                       DANNY
I'm going to need you to put your
license plate on the form.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
I'm sorry, I can't remember what
it is, and I left my registration
in the car.
                                                            
                       DANNY
I'm sorry ma'am but I can't give
you the pass without the license
plate.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
What am I supposed to do?
                                                            
                       DANNY
I'm sorry ma'am but if you want
the pass you are going to have to
find a way to get the plate off
your car and give it to us,
otherwise I can't give you the
pass.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
My car is too far away to walk
back to it just for the license
plate. What happens if I park
without the pass?
                                                            
                       DANNY
Well this is private property so
if you park without the pass you
can get a ticket that will be
about $125 for parking in an
unauthorized space or lot and for
parking without a permit. That is
if you are lucky.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
You're kidding me.
                                                            

22.

                       DANNY
If you are not lucky you will be
towed which is much more
expensive.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
So I risk a ticket or being towed
because I forgot my license plate?
How does that make any sense to
you.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Sorry, but we don't make the rules
we just let people know what they
are.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
      (Sarcastically)
Well you guys are doing a hell of
a job.
                                                            
                       DANNY
      (Sarcastically)
Thank you.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
You know what, I'll take my
chances.
                                                            
Amanda storms out of the office, in walks Valerie, an
employee at P.S.
                                                            
                       VALERIE
What's that chicks problem?
                                                            
                       GINA
Val!
                                                            
                       VALERIE
Gina!
                                                            
Gina runs up to Valerie and gives her a hug.
                                                            
                       VALERIE
I was just checking to see if we
were still on for Friday.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
      (Annoyed)
Yes it's on. It's always on.
                                                            
                       VALERIE
Ok, keep your panties on.
                                                            

23.

                       GINA
Why didn't you just call?
                                                            
                       VALERIE
It ain't after 9. I don't have no
minutes to be wasting.
                                                            
                       GINA
Cheap ass.
                                                            
                       VALERIE
You know it.
                                                            
Valerie notices Danny.
                                                            
                       VALERIE
And who is this tall drink of
water?
                                                            
                       SHAWN
His name is Danny, and it's only
his second day so could you wait a
week before you try and get him in
bed please.
                                                            
                       VALERIE
I don't sleep with men I just
meet.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Yeah well, what do you call what
we did?
                                                            
                       VALERIE
The reason I don't sleep with men
I just meet. Anyway, hi Danny, I'm
Valerie. It's nice to meet you.
                                                            
                       DANNY
You too.
                                                            
                       VALERIE
So are you coming out with us on
Friday?
                                                            
                       DANNY
I didn't know you guys were going
anywhere.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
It's something we do once or twice
a month as a group. We're going
bowling this time.
                                                            

24.

                       DANNY
Cool, I'm in. I mean I can't bowl
or anything but I'm good for
hanging out.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Why can't you bowl?
                                                            
                       DANNY
No, I'm able to bowl, I'm just not
very good at it.
                                                            
                       VALERIE
Cool. Now I'm going to get out of
here before Francine comes back,
      (To Gina)
you know how much she hates me.
Bye girl.
                                                            
                       GINA
See ya.
                                                            
                       VALERIE
Bye Celia, bye Danny, see you guys
Friday.
                                                            
                       CELIA
      (W/ Danny)
Bye.
                                                            
                       SHAWN
Bye to you too.
                                                            
                       VALERIE
Bye troll.
                                                            
Valerie leaves through the front door.
                                                            
 
INT. JOSHUA'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Gina knocks on Joshua's door and enters.
                                                            
                       GINA
Can I talk to you for a minute?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Yeah, sure.
                                                            
                       GINA
So,.......what's your favorite
movie?
                                                            

25.

                       JOSHUA
This is what you want to talk
about?
                                                            
                       GINA
Ice breaker.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Ok, I'll bite. Scent of a Woman.
                                                            
                       GINA
Never heard of it. Next favorite.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Ok. Toy Story.
                                                            
                       GINA
      (Gives him a weird
       look)
Really Josh, I mean it's a good
movie but your second favorite all
time.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
So that is what this is about.
                                                            
                       GINA
What?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
I see you've been talking to
Danny.
                                                            
                       GINA
Josh, what are you talking about?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
I'm over it, the name doesn't
bother me anymore. It's what they
used to call my dad. I hated him
and everything about him including
his name and for most of my life
myself, but I'm over it now. I'm
not a child any more, I'm not
immature any more, I've grown up.
I still hate him but that is just
a name, i'm over it.
                                                            
                       GINA
What about boss man? You over that
one?
                                                            

26.

                       JOSHUA
      (Smiling)
No.
                                                            
                       GINA
You sure know how to take the fun
out things.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Yeah, I'm pretty good at that.
                                                            
Gina gets up and begins to leave.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Gina.
                                                            
                       GINA
Yes.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Even though you did what you just
did, my offer still stands. All
you gotta do is say the words.
                                                            
                       GINA
If I did, could I call you boss
man?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
If you say those words you could
call me anything you want.
                                                            
Gina shakes her head, Joshua smiles and Gina exits. Danny
enters.
                                                            
                       DANNY
So you let Shawn call you Josh.
Shawn, whom you met three days
ago, and when I, your best friend,
did it, you tried to take my head
off.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Yeah, I'm over it now.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Yeah, whatever, anyway what is
this offer that Gina was talking
about.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
What offer?

                       DANNY
The one that still stands despite
what she just did to you.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Oh, that offer.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Yeah that offer.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
What? Do you listen to my
conversations right outside of my
door?
                                                            
                       DANNY
Yeah so spill it.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
I told her that if she were to
ever ask me to marry her, there
would be no circumstance in which
I would say no.
                                                            
                       DANNY
You mean you couldn't just ask her
out on a date?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (Smiling)
Nah, too easy.
                                                            
                       DANNY
      (Laughs)
Yeah buddy. What's with her
friend? That Maria chick?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Don't go there.
                                                            
                       DANNY
What?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
It's a bad idea, and I would
rather not have any inter-office
relationships here.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Wait a minute, so you can marry
someone from the office but you
don't want inter-office
relationships.
                                                            

28.

                       JOSHUA
Our situations are completely
different.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Enlighten me please.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
My plan didn't involve dating.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Ok, I get it, so if I ask her to
marry me would that be fine?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
No, I wouldn't do that either.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Ok, so Joshua tell
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (Interrupting
       Danny)
Look Danny just don't. Please, for
me just don't.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Ok.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Seriously.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Ok, I won't.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Thank you.
                                                            
                       DANNY
You ready to get out of here?
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Almost, I just need a minute to
call my mom.
                                                            
Joshua walks over to the phone and starts dialing.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Ok. Tell her I said hi.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Ok.
                                                            

29.

                       DANNY
And that I miss her.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
      (Laughs)
Ok.
                                                            
                       DANNY
And that I love her.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Danny.
                                                            
                       DANNY
Ok. I'll go get the car.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Ok. I'll be right out.
                                                            
Danny exits and Joshua dials his mom.
                                                            
                       JOSHUA
Hey mom.
                                                            


FADE OUT.
