ROCK: THE MOVIE

INT. BLAKE'S GARAGE - NIGHT
                                                            
The door is open. The camera is looking in. It is a large
space. Blake's amp is on his left. Luke's amp is on his
right. Luke is left handed. Blake is right handed. Blake is
playing a Squire Telecaster with walnut finish and a
humbucker in the bridge position, no pick guard. Luke is
playing a black Ibanez Gio.
                                                            
Blake and Luke are playing guitar badly. After a couple poor
riffs, Luke plays "Beast in the Harlot".
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (disgusted)
No. Avenged blows pants load.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I think they rock!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
why? They're so bad. Why don't you
like good bands, like Pink Floyd
and Led Zep?
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (defensivly)
I do, I just like Avenged.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
You're disgusting. You're like an
animal.
                                                            
                       BETH (O.S.)
Blake! Wash up for dinner! Luke,
do you want to stay?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Uh... sure. What are we having?
                                                            
Beth walks in to scene.
                                                            
                       BETH
Carbonara.
                                                            
Luke shrugs. Blake is stops playing guitar. All three walk
inside.
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT

INT. BLAKE'S KITCHEN - NIGHT
                                                            
The kitchen is big. It has an attached dining room. The
floor is carpeted. There are lots of cupboards and counter
top space.
                                                            
Blake Luke Beth and Charlie are sitting at the large oak
table eating carbonara. Ad lib a discussion about life,
then:
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
Hey boys, do you think Zep said
"let's make the greatest rock song
ever" when they wrote Stairway?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (hesitantly)
I don't know. I think it would
have been hard to forsee its
sucess.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I bet they did. It would be hard
not to.
                                                            
                       BETH
      (exasperated)
Why do you two argue all the time?
It's hard to imagine you're such
good friends!
                                                            
Everyone finishes thier meal without a word. The boys go to
get thier gear from the garage.
                                                            
                       BETH
Those two suck at guitar.
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
They're doing fine! I don't see
you playing an instrument! They
just need practice.
                                                            
The boys walk through the kithen and in to the basement. The
camera follows.
                                                            
 
INT. BLAKE'S BASEMENT - NIGHT
                                                            
The basement is huge. The stairs leading to it are in the
middle of the back wall. The walls are bare cement. The sump
pump is humming in the background. Blake's guitars sit on
stands around the space. There is a big couch on one wall
with a TV in front of it. An X Box 360 is hooked up to the

3.

TV. Blake and Luke are playing guitar on the couch. Their
amps are on the floor next to them.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Dude, we should write the greatest
song in the world!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Ok. How do you like this riff?
                                                            
Luke shreds a riff way beyond his capability.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I like it. How's this for a solo?
                                                            
Blake shreds for about 30 seconds, the lick screaming from
his amp is epic and masterful. Cut to Beth and Charlie
upstairs watching TV.
                                                            
 
INT. BLAKE'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Blake's living room isn't very big, but it's cozy. The TV is
on one wall, the couch on another. A chair is under the
window. The space is carpeted. A lamp is on the right side
of the couch where Beth and Charlie are sitting.
                                                            
                       BETH
      (astonished)
Did they just get good?
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
      (smugly)
Told you so.
                                                            
Cut back to Blake and Luke.
                                                            
 
INT. BLAKE'S BASEMENT - NIGHT
                                                            
                       LUKE
I liked that.
                                                            
The boys shred masterful riffs for a while, then:
                                                            
                       BETH (O.S.)
Boys! Go to sleep!
                                                            
FADE OUT

Boys wake up.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (yawns)
Those were masterworks last night.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I know! How did that go?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (thinks for a
       moment)
Damn it! I forgot!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Gah! Me, too!
                                                            
Boys sit and curse their luck.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Let's try to make a funny song.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok, I got one. This is called Va
Jay Jay: The Song.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Don't even start!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Sorry bro, I guess I'm just not
funny. I'm not freakin' Seth
Rogen.
                                                            
There is a knock on the door. Blake walks to answer it. Cut
to Blake's front door.
                                                            
 
INT. BLAKE'S FOYER - DAY
                                                            
The foyer is right off the living room. It has a vinyl floor
covering and has a mat in front of the carpet.
                                                            
                       LEE
You Blake Moore?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Uh, yeah man.
                                                            
                       LEE
Sign here.

Blake signs the notebook. Lee hands him a large package.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Thanks, man.
                                                            
                       LEE
No problem, dude.
                                                            
Lee walks down the sidewalk. Blake walks back to the
basement. Cut to Blake's basement.
                                                            
 
INT. BLAKE'S BASEMENT - DAY
                                                            
                       LUKE
What is it?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (opens package and
       pulls out a
       notebook)
I... don't know.
                                                            
                       LUKE
That's weird. Where'd it come
from?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I don't know. There's no stamp.
Where'd that delivery guy say he
was from? UPS or FedEx?
                                                            
                       LUKE
He didn't say. Let's go to Joel's.
                                                            
                       BETH (O.S.)
OK! Don't be too long!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok sounds cool. We'll grab a
doughnut on the way for breakfast.
Mom! We're going to Joel's!
                                                            
FADE OUT. FADE in on:
                                                            
 
INT. GUITAR SHOP - DAY
                                                            
Joel's Guitar Shop has two main areas, the Main Area and the
Acoustic Room. Both areas have guitars hanging on the walls.
The Main Area has amps along the exterior wall of the
Acoustic Room and in the middle. Strings and accessories are
on one wall. The register, where Joel is standing, is on the

6.

east wall. Joel is surfing the internet and listening to
music.
                                                            
                       JOEL
Hey guys.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Hey man.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hey Joel.
                                                            
                       JOEL
Hey Joel! I heard you shot yo' old
lady down now!
                                                            
Blake and Luke stare at each other, then accept that Joel is
weird. The boys start playing guitar.
                                                            
                       JOEL
You know, you boys suck.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (Unison with Luke)
We just need practice!
                                                            
                       JOEL
Hey, you boys have two minutes to
write me a top 40 song.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
What? No way!
                                                            
                       JOEL
Ok, or I beat the snot out of you.
                                                            
Lee enters with a package for Joel.
                                                            
                       LEE
      (laughs)
Who are the losers that parked
their bikes right next to the "No
Loitering" sign?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
That was us. Why?
                                                            
                       LEE
The cops just took those bikes.
There was an incident at the
doughnut place, and the bikes
interfered. There was a
one-in-a-million chance it would
happen, but it did. Sucks for you
            (MORE)

                       LEE (cont'd)
guys.
                                                            
                       JOEL
You have 30 seconds.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (scared)
Let's get the hell out of here!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I'm down!
                                                            
Blake Luke and Lee run out of the store as Joel throws picks
at them.
                                                            
 
EXT. GUITAR SHOP - DAY
                                                            
The Guitar Shop is on a strip with two other stores, a nail
salon and the doughnut place. A fast food restaurant is in
the parking lot.
                                                            
                       LEE
That was close!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (Unison with Luke)
Who are you?!
                                                            
                       LEE
      (Grinning)
Well, I'm Lee!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Whatever.
                                                            
Blake and Luke start walking toward Luke's place.
                                                            
                       LEE
Hey, wait up! I can give you guys
a ride if you want.
                                                            
                       LUKE
No thank you... I uh, think we're
good.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (whispers to Luke)
This guy's weird, man...
                                                            

8.

                       LUKE
      (whispers to Blake)
Yeah, no junk! Let's ditch him.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (whispers to Luke)
I'm down.
                                                            
The two boys start running away from Lee.
                                                            
                       LEE
      (yells)
Hey! Where're you bros going?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Don't stop! We're losing him!
                                                            
                       LEE
      (yells)
Come on, guys!
                                                            
The boys keep running. FADE TO:
                                                            
 
EXT. LUKE'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
PORCH
                                                            
It is a slab porch. A wicker bench is to the right. It is
surrounded by a garden.
                                                            
Blake and Luke start pounding on the door.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (shouting)
Mom! open the door! A creepy UPS
guy is following us!
                                                            
Judy opens the door.
                                                            
                       JUDY
What's wrong?
                                                            
The boys start babbling about the events of the day.
                                                            
                       JUDY
Woah! Slow down!
                                                            
The trio walks inside.
                                                            
FOYER
                                                            

9.

                       BLAKE
Ok. So. This crazy deranged UPS
guy has been following us, and
he's weird.
                                                            
There's a knock on the door.
                                                            
                       LEE
It's Lee! Open up!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (whispers)
That's him! Don't answer it!
                                                            
Judy throws open the door and maces Lee. Lee falls to the
ground, screaming and crying.
                                                            
                       LEE
Ahh! What the hell was that!
                                                            
                       JUDY
That was mace. If I ever see you
around these boys again I'll kill
you. Leave.
                                                            
The boys stare in awe at Judy. Lee gets up, opens his mouth
to explain. Judy maces him again. Lee turns and runs down
the street.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Mom! You maced the UPS guy! That
was so cool!
                                                            
                       JUDY
      (Starts to chew
       gum)
Well, when people mess with you
kids, theres only two things I
like to do: chew gum and kick ass.
This was my last peice of gum.
                                                            
The boys walk to Luke's basement.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (whispers to Luke)
Dude your mom's a badass.
                                                            
 

10.

INT. LUKE'S BASEMENT - DAY
                                                            
Luke's basement is a large space. There is a sectional sofa
dividing the room in half. There is a 52 inch TV facing the
couch. To the back of the couch is a pool table. There is
also a bar.
                                                            
The boys are playing pool.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
You rack, I'll break.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Ok.
                                                            
Luke racks up the balls.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Let me grab my pool bat...
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (laughs)
Dude, it's called a cue.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
You're a cue.
                                                            
Blake breaks. Nothing goes in. The balls hardly move.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Dude, nice break.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
That's what she said.
                                                            
The boys start playing.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Has it occured to you that we suck
at guitar?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah, we need help.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
We could always sell our souls?
                                                            
                       LUKE
No way man. I'm no republican.
                                                            
Luke sinks the eight ball for the win.
                                                            

11.

                       LUKE
That's game.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Damn. I can never win.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Guess not.
                                                            
                       JUDY
Blake! Luke! Beth's here!
                                                            
LUKE'S DRIVEWAY
                                                            
                       BETH
Luke, your guitar's in the back.
Blake, come on. We have stuff to
do.
                                                            
 
INT. BLAKE'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Blake's room is small. There is nothing except a bed and a
dresser, because that's what fits. For this reason, Blake
only hangs out in the basement. He only goes to his room
when something is bothering him. He has a black ceiling with
luminescent stars.
                                                            
Blake is sleeping. He is tossing and turning. Enter dream
sequence.
                                                            
BLAKE'S DREAM
                                                            
The scene is a poker game. JIM MORRISON is sitting with
Blake.
                                                            
                       JIM
Blake... I like your music. It
opens doors to perception... It
rocks.
                                                            
                       
But your guitar sucks.
                                                            
                       JIM
I'll help you, man.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
How?
                                                            
                       JIM
I'll come to you... in other
forms.
                                                            

12.

                       
So wake up and play that guitar.
                                                            
                       JIM
Tomorrow go over to Luke's and
jam. I'll help you.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok...Thanks, Jim.
                                                            
Jim waves Blake on.
                                                            
 
INT. BLAKE'S BEDROOM - DAY
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (to himself)
That was crazy... better do it.
                                                            
Blake gets up and presumably gets dressed. You see him next
on the way out the door, guitar strapped to his back, amp on
the back of his bike.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (yells)
Mom, I'm going to Luke's!
                                                            
                       BETH
Ok, try to be headed home by
three!
                                                            
Blake rides down the street, fade out and back in at:
                                                            
 
EXT. BOB'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Blake knocks on the door. Jamie answers.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Hey, is Luke here?
                                                            
                       JUDY
Yeah. Luke! Blake's here!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Thank you.
                                                            
Luke comes to the door.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hey man, what's up?
                                                            

13.

                       BLAKE
      (exited)
Dude, Jim Morrison came to me in a
dream last night.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (scratches head)
Dude, that's crazy.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
No way, man! He said he could help
us write the greatest song in the
world!
                                                            
                       LUKE
I'm starting to have second
thoughts about this, man.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
What? No! Dude, I can't write the
song myself! You can't do this to
me!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Ok, what do we do with the song?
Put it on FriendSpace so everyone
can steal it, and we get nothing?
No thank you.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I don't beleive this! We were
gonna write the greatest song in
the world, and you're bailing on
me!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Guess so, man.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (furious)
Whatever, man.
                                                            
Blake goes back to his bike and rides down the street. Fade
to:
                                                            
 
EXT. GUITAR SHOP - DAY
                                                            
Blake parks his mom's bike out side the Guitar Shop. He
locks it up, and begins to walk inside.
                                                            

14.

                       LEE
      (from the parking
       lot)
Dude!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Jesus, Lee, why can't you leave me
alone?
                                                            
                       LEE
Ok, man, I'm gonna level with you
here. Jim Morrison came to me in a
dream...
                                                            
                       BLAKE
What?
                                                            
                       LEE
Yeah, man, I know it's crazy.
Anyway, so he told me to teach you
and Luke how to rock.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
You... rock?
                                                            
                       LEE
Yeah. I used to be in this band,
and we almost had the greatest
song in the world.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
You're kidding me.
                                                            
                       LEE
Nope. I'm not.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Dad, who's this?
                                                            
                       LEE
Carmen, this is Blake. Blake,
Carmen.
                                                            
You can feel the chemistry in the air. Blake and Carmen make
eye contact, and you can almost see the spark.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
      (blushing)
Hi.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (blushing)
Hi.
                                                            

15.

                       CARMEN
So you play guitar?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Yeah, I suck.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
      (laughing)
That's cool. My dad's good! He
could like, teach you?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok...
                                                            
                       LEE
Awesome! So lets go get started!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok...
                                                            
Blake, Carmen, and Lee go inside. All three of them grab
acoustic guitars and start playing.
                                                            
Meanwhile, Luke is starting to regret what he said.
                                                            
 
INT. LUKE'S BEDROOM - DAY
                                                            
Luke's room is big. He has a white ceiling. His walls are
white with an ornamental trim. He has posters of bands on
the walls. His carpet is white with tan flecks. He has a
small TV and his computer desk.
                                                            
Luke is sitting on his bed, playing guitar. He is much
better than when we as the audience first met him. There is
a sad look on his face.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (to himself)
I should be jamming with Blake
right now... Oh my god, why was I
such a freak? We suck though! and
if we do write the song, someone
would steal it. And even if they
didn't, you don't get famous off
one song, but still... we have to
try!
                                                            
Luke runs outside, gets on his mom's bike, and rides to the
Guitar Shop.
                                                            
 

16.

INT. GUITAR SHOP - DAY
                                                            
Blake, Carmen, and Lee are jamming in the acoustic room. Bob
walks in, sees Lee, and screams.
                                                            
                       LUKE
What the heck is he doing here!
                                                            
Luke punches Lee in the face.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Dude! It's cool! Lee is our
friend!
                                                            
When Blake tries to pull Luke off of Lee, Luke punches Blake
in the face. Carmen starts screaming. Joel is watching,
eating a sandwich.
                                                            
                       JOEL
Yeah, Luke! Oh, that wasn't
fair...
                                                            
Blake finally pins Luke. Lee grabs him, and drags him in to
his UPS truck. FADE to:
                                                            
 
INT. THE BACK OF LEE'S TRUCK - DAY
                                                            
Lee's truck is too dark to see. When Lee opens the back, you
see the space is littered with boxes.
                                                            
luke is in the back of Lee's truck. He hears muffled voices
from the cab. He is scared. The truck stops. Lee opens the
door. They are at an abandoned church.
                                                            
THE OLD CHURCH
                                                            
                       LEE
Ok, dudes, in there lies the
secret to the greatest song in the
world. Let's go.
                                                            
They walk in to the church. The floor is littered with bones
and skulls. Lee holds a candle. They come to a door. On the
door is written:
                                                            
                       SATAN (V.O.)
Abandon hope, all ye who enter
here... I'm the devil, and I love
metal! No R&B in Hell!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Lee, I don't like this place.
                                                            

17.

Blake takes Carmen's hand
                                                            
                       LEE
It's cool. If you want the song,
go with it.
                                                            
Lee braces his shoulder against the door and shoves it open.
On the inside there is the devil sitting inside a magic
circle.
                                                            
                       SATAN
LEE! Why have you brought these
people here!
                                                            
Lee hangs his head.
                                                            
                       LEE
They seek the greatest song in the
world.
                                                            
Satan laughs, shaking the whole chamber.
                                                            
                       SATAN
These miserable rat bastards think
they can handle the greatest song
in the world!
      (Bellows laughter)
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I think we can do it!
                                                            
Satan throws a ball of fire at Blake. He singes Blake's
eyebrows with it. There is a flash of light, when it fades:
                                                            
 
INT. BLAKE'S BASEMENT - DAY
                                                            
The boys are sprawled on the floor. They are disoriented.
Blake looks at his hands, there is a magic circle on each
palm.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Dude... I think we can do it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
No way, man.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (sarcastically)
Really?
                                                            
Blake starts shredding a lick.
                                                            

18.

                       BLAKE
We can do it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Maybe we can...
                                                            
There is a knock on the door. Blake answers it. Jack and
Kyle are there.
                                                            
                       JACK
You Blake Moore?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
...yeah?
                                                            
                       KYLE
And you're Luke Hodgerson?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah...
                                                            
                       JACK
I'm Jack. This is Kyle. We're
gonna teach you to rock. Where's
Lee?
                                                            
                       LEE
I'm right here! What's up, dudes?
                                                            
                       KYLE
Nothing really. Jim Morrison told
us to teach these boys to rock.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
How does everyone know each other?
                                                            
                       JACK
      (Unison with Kyle
       and Lee)
We were in The What.
                                                            
                       LUKE
What?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
No man, THE What. It's a band.
They had the greatest song in the
world.
                                                            
                       KYLE
That's right!
                                                            

19.

                       SATAN (V.O.)
      (laughs)
If you don't write the greatest
song ever, you'll be roadies for
ever!
                                                            
                       LUKE
We're gonna do it.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
That's the spirit, man!
                                                            
                       JACK
Ok, you dudes go get some rest.
Take a little break.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Carmen... want to go to a movie?
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Sure. What one?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
How about... 12 Points of Rock?
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Sure.
                                                            
Blake and Carmen leave. Jack Kyle and Lee follow. Luke is
the last to go.
                                                            
 
INT. LUKE'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
DREAM SEQUENCE
                                                            
Luke is on a plain. The sky is burning red. Lightning
strikes, and Satan appears.
                                                            
                       SATAN
Blake is destined to steal your
thunder, Luke! You can't let that
happen!
                                                            
                       LUKE
He wouldn't do that!
                                                            
                       SATAN
Oh, but he would. He doesn't even
want the song! Go out... play
metal! Then you'll have the song!
Blake is the enemy!
                                                            

20.

                       LUKE
I should play metal?
                                                            
                       SATAN
Yes!
                                                            
Luke wakes in a cold sweat.
                                                            
                       SATAN (V.O.)
Play some metal!
                                                            
There is a flash of light, and a Kramer Imperial appears in
a burned hole in the carpet.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (to himself)
I'm gonna play metal!
                                                            
Luke picks up the guitar and starts playing a metal riff. It
is masterful and great. Close up on Luke's eyes... they are
black pits of despair.
                                                            
 
INT. POLICE STATION - DAY
                                                            
Blake is talking to a cop about his bike. Blake appears
flustered.
                                                            
                       OFFICER 1
So... you parked under a No
Loitering sign, and you want your
bike back?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Yeah, pretty much.
                                                            
                       OFFICER 1
Ok. That'll be fifty dollars.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
What?
                                                            
                       OFFICER 1
Fifty bucks, or no bike.
                                                            
Blake fumbles around in his wallet.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I only have 11!
                                                            
                       OFFICER 1
Sucks to be you.
                                                            

21.

Blake takes out his cell phone and dials Lee.
                                                            
                       LEE (V.O.)
Hello?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Lee! It's Blake. I need fifty
bucks to get my bike out of
impound. Come on, man!
                                                            
                       LEE (V.O.)
Ok, man, I'll be there.
                                                            
 
EXT. LUKE'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Blake is flying down the street with his guitar on his back.
He reaches Luke's door and knocks. Luke answers.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hey man.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Dude, I got my bike back.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah, I got mine yesterday.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Did you write a good riff?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah, man, it is flawless.
                                                            
Luke starts playing a heavy riff.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Dude, we decided this. No metal.
                                                            
                       LUKE
You cannot kill the metal, man.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
We had a deal, and now you're
doing this to me?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I'm starting to think you don't
want the song!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I'm starting to think YOU don't
want the song!
                                                            

22.

                       LUKE
Dude, the devil told us to play
metal. Don't you think we should
listen?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Dude, it's the DEVIL! Put your
head on straight! He isn't going
to help us!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Don't start with that, man. You're
the one who bailed on me for
Carmen.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
That's totally different!
                                                            
                       LUKE
How, man? All I'm saying is if we
play metal, we'll have the song.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
No way! No metal!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Are you really gonna start this?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Yeah!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Dude, this is retarded. Let's go
play some pool.
                                                            
 
INT. LUKE'S BASEMENT - DAY
                                                            
Blake and Luke walk down the stairs into the basement. Once
there, Blake punches Luke straight in the mouth. Luke dabs
it, his fingers come away with blood. A magic circle flashes
in Luke's eyes.
                                                            
                       LUKE
No way, man.
                                                            
Luke throws Blake across the room. Blake hits the wall and
crumples, unconcious.
                                                            
 

23.

EXT. THE WOODS - DAY
                                                            
Blake is tied up with his guitar on top of him. A deathbat
is drawn on his guitar.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (furious)
NO!
                                                            
                       JIM (V.O.)
Blake, Luke is dead to us now.
Forget him. He has strayed from
the path.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok.
                                                            
Jim walks out of the trees.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
You've been dead for forty years!
                                                            
                       JIM
I live in your heart, Blake. Lets
get out of here.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok.
                                                            
Blake and Jim start walking away from the camera.
                                                            
 
INT. BLAKE'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
                       BLAKE

Beth walks in to scene, shakes Jim's hand.
                                                            
                       BETH
Hello, I'm Blake's mom.
                                                            
                       JIM
Hey, I'm Jim Morrison.
                                                            
                       BETH
Thats nice.
                                                            
BLAKE'S BASEMENT
                                                            
Blake and Jim are playing guitar. Jack walks in to the
scene.
                                                            

24.

                       JACK
Hey dudes. Where's Luke?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
He's gone to the dark side.
                                                            
                       JIM
He's dead to us now.
                                                            
                       JACK
Why?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok, man, I'm gonna level with you.
Here it is.
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE TO:
                                                            
BOB'S BASEMENT
                                                            
                       LUKE
All your base are belong to us!
                                                            
Luke starts beating down Blake with a pool cue, then throws
him across the room.
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE BACK
                                                            
BLAKE'S BASEMENT
                                                            
                       BLAKE
And that's exactly how it
happened.
                                                            
 
INT. LUKE'S BEDROOM - DAY
                                                            
Luke is playing guitar. Kyle walks in to scene.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Hey man. Where's Blake and Jack?
                                                            
                       LUKE
They're dead to us.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Why?
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE TO:
                                                            

25.

LUKE'S BASEMENT
                                                            
                       BLAKE
All your base are belong to us!
                                                            
Blake starts beating Luke with a pool stick, then throws him
across the room.
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE BACK
                                                            
LUKE'S BEDROOM
                                                            
                       LUKE
And that's exactly how it
happened.
                                                            
                                         SPLIT SCREEN
                                                            
Half the screen is Bob's bedroom, the other half is Blake's
Basement.
                                                            
                       JACK
      (Unison with Kyle)
Dude, I got you a show.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (Unison with Luke)
Cool. Where?
                                                            
                       KYLE
      (Unison with Jack)
The food court.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Unison with Blake)
Cool. Let's go.
                                                            
 
INT. FOOD COURT - DAY
                                                            
Blake and Luke are jamming in the food court. Luke is
playing metal, Blake is playing blues. The screen is split.
Their headstocks hit.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (Unison with Luke)
Damn.
                                                            
They sitch sides of the screen, and continue playing. The
screen split dissolves. Blake and Bob look at each other.
                                                            

26.

                       LUKE
      (Unison with Blake)
Damn.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Dude, I think it's time we burried
the hatchet.
                                                            
Extreme close up to Blake's forehead for thought process.
Blake burries a hatchet in Bob's skull. Zooms out back into
reality.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I agree. We'll never get the song
separate.
                                                            
Blake and Luke walk off scene. Lee takes the stage and
starts singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" in a high
falsetto voice. Jack and Kyle drag him away. Carmen blushes

                       JACK
Dudes, you gotta loosen up!
                                                            
                       LEE
Yeah, that's why this song sucks.
Loosen up, you'll get it.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Start some lyrics. Deep and
meaningful. Blake, go.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Jam it! I, oh I wish, I wish I was
a fish! I, oh I wish, I wish I was

                       LUKE
I wish I was a fish!

living life this way, I'd lagh at
all the people, I'm living for
today!I, oh I wish, I wish I was
a fish! I, oh I wish, I wish I was
a fish!
                                                            
Luke and Blake go into a massive epic dueling guitar solo.
Their amps catch fire.
                                                            
                       JACK
Holy shit! Put that out!
                                                            
Carmen runs to get the fire extinguisher, then outs out the
fire.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
There goes our gear.
                                                            
                       LUKE
What now?
                                                            
                       LEE
I'll go get some new amps.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
It's sunday night. No one is gonna
be open.
                                                            
                       JACK
He's right. Nothing to do untill
tomorrow.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Blake, do you mind if I stay at
your place?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Sure, that's fine.

                       JIM
You're moving right along, boys.
You'll have that song before you
know it.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (Unison with Luke)
Awesome!
      (alone)
What do we do when we get it?
                                                            
                       JIM
You must travel to the land of
Dreams... Hollywood. There, you
will find a bar with an open mic
night. Play there. There will be a
record agent. Talk to him. He'll
know what to do. The goal is in
sight.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Thanks Jim!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Thanks Jim.
                                                            
Jim dissolves away. Lee, Jack, Kyle, and Carmen enter scene.
Lee is carrying some new amps.
                                                            
                       LEE
Ok, dudes, here's you new amps.
Lets get started.
                                                            
Blake shows a peice of paper to Carmen. She hugs him, and
shows it to Lee. He shows it to Jack and Kyle.
                                                            
                       JACK
      (Unison with Kyle
       and Lee)
This is it, boys. You got the
song. Practice that riff! No
lyrics untill you know it's time!
                                                            
Blake starts playing a chord progression, Luke starts
playing a bridge. This goes on for a few minutes.
                                                            
                       KYLE

                       BLAKE
Oh, that's Lee's kid Carmen. She's

                       JIM
Ok. Let me see the song.
                                                            
Blake hands Jim a peice of paper. Jim reads it, and claps
Blake on the back.
                                                            
                       JIM
You did it, boys! This is the
greatest song in the world!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Thanks, Jim.
                                                            
Jim takes a piece of pizza and walks out of the place.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
      (Hugs Blake)
You did it!

No! No, thank you. No way. No.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Why not, dude? She seems cool
enough.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
You just met this girl, and now
you want to give up the song? No,
thank you.
                                                            
                       DESTINY
It's OK, really. Don't worry about
it.

playing with Moore! If you want
the song, you have to leave him
and Morrison! Join me!
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (hesitantly)
And you want me to play metal to
do this?
                                                            
                       SATAN
Yes, you must! Take this axe, and
you will rock harder and faster
than God!
                                                            
A BC Rich Mockingbird 6-String/Virgo appears in another
burst of flame, with a red aura. The guitar is posessed by
Satan.
                                                            
Luke picks up the guitar, the red aura surrounding his
hands, as he begins to shred, completely beyond abilities of
any seen as yet. His face becomes awestruck.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (amazed)
This is... amazing! I can't
believe the power my shred has
with this guitar!

                       LUKE
      (angrily)
Why can't you just accept that I'm
a better guitarist!?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
What the H, douchebag?!
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (throws guitar to
       the ground)
I don't have to deal with you and
your jealousy!
                                                            
Luke storms out, leaving the Satanic guitar.
                                                            
Blake picks up the guitar. he starts playing slow and

                       JOEL
Why's that?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
The devil got to him. Dude, you
got a cord?
                                                            
Joel throws Blake a cord. He plugs in a guitar and starts
playing blues.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (while playing)
Well my buddy Luke.
He's in league with the devil.
He's got a strange looking ax,
And he's in league with the devil.

things in the past, but nothing
compares to this!
                                                            
                       JIM
What?
                                                            
Satan pulls out a revolver and empties five slugs into Jim's
chest. A crazed fan leaps on stage and takes the last slug
to his forehead.

That's too much for me to handle.
                                                            
                       JIM
Satan cannot decline a rock off.
That's what you must do.

Ok.
                                                            

39.

Blake straps a guitar to his back, grabs a hand full of
picks, and starts walk out. He pauses:
                                                            
                       BLAKE
What if I lose?
                                                            
                       JIM
I don't know. I don't.
                                                            
Carmen embraces Blake. He shakes her off, and solemnly walks
out of the store.
                                                            
 
EXT. LUKE'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Blake knocks on the door, not knowing what may happen. Luke
answers. His eyes are soulless pits, burning with the
deepest fires of Hell. Luke acts nonchalante.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hey dude. What's up?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I gotta rock-off you, man. It's
the only way to beat the devil.
                                                            
                       LUKE
You can't beat the devil, man.
                                                            
At that instant, Satan appears.
                                                            
                       SATAN
Moore! You are messing up my
plans!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Sorry dude. I guess it's what I
gotta do.
                                                            
                       SATAN
      (laughs)
Ok! Let's rock off!
                                                            
A giant amp rises behind Blake and another behind Satan. A
guitar materializes in Satan's hands. Blake takes his tele
from his back. Satan laughs.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Well Satan, here it is. If I win,
I want the song and my best friend
back.
                                                            

40.

                       SATAN
If I win?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Name it. Whatever you want.
                                                            
                       SATAN
I keep Luke, Lee, Jack and Kyle.
You become an accountant and give
up your guitars for ever. And I
get your soul.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I can dig that. Let's go. You
first.
                                                            
Satan plays "Satan' First Riff" (Written by Blake Moore, (C)
2008). Blake follows with "Blake's First Riff" (Written by
Blake Moore, (C) 2008). Satan plays "Satan Riff Two"
(Written by Blake Moore, (C) 2008). Blake plays "Blake's

"The Riffgasm" (Written by Blake Moore, (C) 2008). Blake
plays "The Finisher" (Written by Blake Moore, (C) 2008).
                                                            
                       SATAN
      (laughs)
That was really bad!
                                                            
                       CARMEN
It was better than yours!
                                                            
                       SATAN
And just who are you!
                                                            
                       CARMEN
I'm Carmen. I've been playing
guitar... wanna duet?
                                                            
                       SATAN
      (laughs)
Ok! Me and Luke versus you and
Moore. We'll see who wins it!
                                                            
                       CARMEN
You first.
      (whispers to Blake)
We got this is the bag.
                                                            
Satan and Luke play "S and L One" (by Blake Moore, (C) 2008)
                                                            
                       CARMEN
That was good. But how about this.
                                                            

41.

Carmen plays "Super Riff" (by Blake Moore, (C) 2008)
                                                            
                       SATAN
      (laughs maniacally)
                                                            
Satan and Luke play "That Was Garbage" (by Blake Moore, (C)
2008)
                                                            
Blake and Carmen play "The Face Melter" (by Blake Moore, (C)
2008)
                                                            
                       SATAN
      (screams in agony
       as his face melts)
                                                            
The amps go back in to the ground, Luke's eyes return to
their normal state.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
We did it. We beat the devil.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Yeah. I guess so.
                                                            
Blake walks over to Luke and lays a hand on his shoulder.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
You OK, man?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah man, I'll be fine. Those were
master works, dude.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Thanks.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Oh yeah, and thanks for getting my
soul back, too.
                                                            
Destiny runs out of the house and jumps on Luke.
                                                            
                       DESTINY
You're OK!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yep! No more Satan in me!
                                                            
                       DESTINY
      (laughs)
Good!
                                                            

42.

                       CARMEN
Aren't you a devil agent, though?
                                                            
                       DESTINY
No, I'm a rock-exorcist. See?
                                                            
Destiny gestures to the possessed guitar. It no longer
glows.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Cool?
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Let's go, dudes. We have a song to
play.
                                                            
Lee drives up in a black SUV limo packed with amps and the
like. Lee, Jack, and Kyle jump out.
                                                            
                       LEE
Let's rock it!
                                                            
The seven all climb in to the limo, and it rolls down the
street.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (from the limo)
You know, that rock off wasn't too
hard. It was kind of
disappointing...
                                                            
The other six laugh.
                                                            
 
INT. BAR - NIGHT
                                                            
It is kind of dark, and big. There are circular tables
scattered about. the bar is on one wall, the stage is
opposite. The open mic host is reading Rolling Stone
magazine.
                                                            
The seven dudes walk into the bar.
                                                            
                       OPEN MIC HOST
Hey, no kids here.
                                                            
                       LEE
Step aside, dude. Jim Morrison
told us to come here when we got
the song.
                                                            
                       OPEN MIC HOST
So you got it?
                                                            

43.

                       BLAKE
Totes! We got that song, man!
                                                            
                       OPEN MIC HOST
      (gestures to the
       stage)
Ok. You're on after this guy
juggling his own balls.
                                                            
The guy on stage screams.
                                                            
                       OPEN MIC HOST
Ok, or now.
                                                            
The seven walk on stage carrying amps and mics. Blake is on
rhythm guitar and vocals, Luke is on lead guitar, Carmen is
on bass, Destiny has a tambourine, Lee is at a drum kit,
Jack and Kyle have acoustic guitars.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok, so uh... we just rocked off
the devil for the greatest song in
the world.... here's our story.
Hit it.
                                                            
The seven play "How We Beat The Devil" (by Blake Moore, (C)
2008). At the end, a crazed dude throws a bottle at the
stage.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Was that really necessary?
                                                            
                       CROWD
Yeah! You guys suck!
                                                            
Luke grabs a mic.
                                                            
                       LUKE
You know, if there's one thing
I've learned, it's that if you
suck, all it takes is a satanic
possession and a hot roxorcist to
make you good. That song was kick
ass, and any douchebag who
disagrees better get the hell out
of Dodge right now! This next song
is called I Wish I Was a Fish!
                                                            
Blake pats Luke on the back.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (to Luke)
Dude that song sucks.
                                                            

44.

                       LUKE
      (to Blake)
Just play it.
      (to the rest of
       the group)
We gotta slay now, guys. You
ready?
                                                            
                       LEE
      (with the rest of
       the group)
Yeah I guess so.
                                                            
The group plays "I Wish I was A Fish" (By Blake Moore, (C)
2008). The crowd is silent for a moment, then starts
cheering. A fat man in a black suit walks up to the stage.
                                                            
                       HORATIO
I'm Horatio Fellatio. I like your
music, and want you to cut an
album. Hell, maybe we'll get you a
movie deal.
                                                            
All eight of them look at the camera.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Uh... most of us are kids, so
maybe you should talk to Lee.
                                                            
                       HORATIO
Who's Lee?
                                                            
                       LEE
      (raises his hand)
I'm Lee! Let's talk business.
                                                            
                       HORATIO
We'll record your first single at
no charge, then if it hits in the
top 25, I'll do your first album
for free.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (to Lee)
Let's do it. We have nothing to
lose.
                                                            
                       LEE
We're gonna do it... for Joel!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
We're doing it for Jim, not Joel.
                                                            

45.

                       LEE
Right.
                                                            
                       HORATIO
Let's go, then!
                                                            
                       OPEN MIC HOST
      (to crowd)
Help these guys with their stuff.
Come on!
                                                            
The group walks out, members of the crowd follow carrying
their stuff.
                                                            
 
EXT. FELLATIO RECORDS - DAY
                                                            
It is a very tall building, made of steel and glass. Due to
FCC resrictions, the sign says "F Records". Horatio's car
pulls up first, followed by the group's limo. Everybody
gets out, and stands on the sidewalk.
                                                            
                       HORATIO
      (proudly)
Here it is, dudes. My pride and
joy, Fellatio Records.
                                                            
Blake and Luke snicker.
                                                            
                       HORATIO
I am aware that I have a funny
name.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
No, no no! You have it all wrong!
We were laughing at the fact that
we have to fill up the tank in the
limo before we take it back!
                                                            
Horatio rolls his eyes, and holds the door open for the
group.
                                                            
A STUDIO INSIDE
                                                            
The band is set up in a recording area. Horatio is on the
other side of the glass wall at a control panel.
                                                            
                       HORATIO
OK, dudes. Lets jam it. I Wish I
Was A Fish, take one.
                                                            
They play flawlessly.
                                                            

46.

                       HORATIO
That was good, but we can make it
great. Extend the solo, try again.
                                                            
They play again, with a crazy solo in the middle.
                                                            
                       HORATIO
There it is, dudes! Ha ha! So,
I'll put you dudes up in a hotel,
and come back here in the morning,
okay? You can leave your stuff.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Dug.
                                                            
Everybody leaves and goes to a hotel.
                                                            
 
INT. HOTEL ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Blake and Luke are in the room. There are two beds, a couch,
and a big TV. This scene is essential to the plot!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
You know, dude, we're gonna be
rock stars.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I know, right?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
It's exiting.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I'm kinda scared.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Me too.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Like, nothing will be the same if
we make it big.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah. I don't know if I'm ready
for this.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I know. Like, we'll make probably
50 million a piece, and then all
sorts of people will come out of
            (MORE)

47.

                       BLAKE (cont'd)
the wood work. I don't want that.
I want to live at home until I'm
18, then I'll buy a Porsche and
buy a nice place in Chicago.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Sounds like a plan. Me, I'm gonna
buy Destiny a nice big rock and
ask her to marry me. Drop off the
grid. Live in a trailer down in
Missouri or something. Pay for
everything in cash.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Yeah. Maybe I'll write a few
screen plays and get my pilot
license, too. Buy a Cessna or
something. Fly around the country
side. get a job as an accountant
or something when the slush starts
getting low.
                                                            
                       LUKE
That sounds awesome. I'll live
simply, you know? Keep what ever
is left over. Never have to work
again.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
yeah. You gonna pay off your mom's
place, too? I know I will.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Of course, man.
                                                            
Luke pulls out a ring box, and opens it up. A huge rock sits
on a platinum band.
                                                            
                       LUKE
It's for Destiny. Think she'll
like it?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Yeah, man! Looks like you dropped
some jack on that.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Not too much. Just like, 500
grand.
                                                            

48.

                       BLAKE
      (laughs)
Yeah, that's chump change for us
now.
                                                            
Jim Morrison knocks on the door. Blake gets up and lets him
in. Jim walks over and sits on the couch.
                                                            
                       JIM
      (happily)
You did it, boys! You got a
contract!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (hi fives Jim)
Yeah, man! Dude, check this rock
Luke got for Destiny.
                                                            
Luke shows Jim the ring. Jim stares in awe.
                                                            
                       JIM
Nice, dude!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Thanks, dude.
                                                            
A DIFFERENT ROOM
                                                            
Same setup as the other one, but Carmen and Destiny are in
this one.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
We hit the freakin' jackpot on
this one, eh?
                                                            
                       DESTINY
Hells yes! I love rocking, too.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Me too. It's just so awesome.
                                                            
                       DESTINY
So what are you gonna do with your
money?
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Oh, me and Blake talked about it.
We're going to buy a Porsche and a
place in Chicago, then he's gonna
get a job as an accountant or
something. I don't think I'll ever
have to work again, so that's
awesome. How about you?
                                                            

49.

                       DESTINY
Uh... I don't know. I might move
to New York or something, be an
artist.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
What if Luke asks you to marry
him?
                                                            
                       DESTINY
He won't.
                                                            
                       BLAKE (v.o)
      (as a narrator)
Now, it's important to understand
that Destiny likes Luke as much as
Luke likes Destiny, but she
doesn't know he likes her. Earlier
that night, Blake sent Carmen a
text message telling her of Luke's
plan to propose. But it's a
surprise for a show. Carmen is
having a mini freakout about it.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
What if he does, though?
                                                            
                       DESTINY
I don't know... I guess I'd say
yes. Then we'd move to New York or
something, and I'd be an artist. I
want to be an artist either way.
                                                            
There's a knock on the door. Carmen opens the door. It's
Luke.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hey. Could me and Destiny get a
minute alone?
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Yeah I was just on my way out.
                                                            
                       LUKE
K.
                                                            
Luke moves out of the way and Carmen walks out the door.
Luke goes and sits next to Destiny.
                                                            
                       LUKE
You know, we're gonna be set for
life after we cut our album.
                                                            

50.

                       DESTINY
I know, it's gonna be sweet.
                                                            
                       LUKE
And I really like you.
                                                            
                       DESTINY
I like you, too.
                                                            
Luke gets on one knee and pulls out the ring. Destiny gasps
and puts her hand over her mouth.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Will you marry me?
                                                            
                       DESTINY
We're too young!
                                                            
                       LUKE
We'll have a long engagement.
                                                            
                       DESTINY
Yes!
                                                            
Destiny kisses Luke. Camera cuts to Blake's room.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
So he's doin' it?
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Yep. I think they make a good
couple.
                                                            
There's a knock on the door. Blake answers it. It's Lee. He
is upset.
                                                            
                       LEE
It's Jack and Kyle, man! They left
the band!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
What? Why?
                                                            
                       LEE
They said we could make it with
out them, and they walked out.
                                                            
Jim walks in.
                                                            
                       JIM
This is a setback, but we can make
it. It's ok.
                                                            

51.

                       BLAKE
Ok...
                                                            
Luke walks in carrying Destiny.
                                                            
                       DESTINY
Who's funeral?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Jack and Kyle walked out.
                                                            
                       DESTINY
That sucks!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I think we'll be fine... let's all
just go to sleep. Forget about
Jack and Kyle. The wouldn't leave
if we were going to fail.
                                                            
Everyone nods, and goes to their respective rooms. Blake
turns out the light.
                                                            
 
EXT. A PARK - DAY
                                                            
Blake, Carmen, Luke and Destiny are sitting on a bench. No
one else is around. After some idle conversation, Horatio
and Lee run over.
                                                            
                       HORATIO
I Wish I Was A Fish just hit
number one in the charts! Rolling
Stone wants an interview with
Blake and Luke right away!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Uh... Ok?
                                                            
Blake Luke and Horatio leave.
                                                            
 
INT. A LOUNGE - DAY
                                                            
Blake Luke and Molly are in chairs in the lounge.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
So, you boys have the greatest
song in the world right now.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I guess so.
                                                            

52.

                       MOLLY
How has that changed your lives?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Until we get our first concert and
our royalty checks, it hasn't
changed mine.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I disagree. Having the song has
changed me. I am more responsible,
can write better music, and am an
over all better person.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
We've only had it for like, what,
12 hours?
                                                            
                       MOLLY
Next question. Are there any women
in your lives?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I just proposed to Destiny.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I'm emotionally attached, yes.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
Blake, care to elaborate?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Quite honestly, no.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
Ok... what was your inspiration
for I Wish I Was a Fish?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Well, I don't know why I wrote it-
                                                            
                       LUKE
This one was Blake, yes.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Anyway, It just came to me in a
jam session.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
What's it about?
                                                            

53.

                       BLAKE
It's about how people get caught
up in the world, and a fish would
just relax and swim around. Like,
there's a hidden meaning if you
delve in to the song, but most
people will take it as face value.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
Want to tell us the hidden
meaning?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
No.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
This one's for Luke. have you ever
been scared Blake would steal your
thunder?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Not really. We both have our
strengths and weaknesses.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
You two aren't saying much.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
There isn't much to say. Until we
get a movie deal-
                                                            
All three stare at the camera.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
-You're just going to grill us on
this one song.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
Are there any more songs underway?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah, but writing's hard.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Psh. It is if you're Luke.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
Ok this is getting no where fast.
Let's just leave.
                                                            
Blake's phone rings. He answers it.
                                                            

54.

                       HORATIO (V.O)
      (on the phone)
Hey, I got you guys a show. And I
trust you have some new songs?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Yeah man, we got some songs. Some
pretty good ones, so...
                                                            
                       HORATIO
      (on the phone)
Great. Your stuff's in the car.
I'll be right over.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Cool.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Dude, we gotta go play a show.
Horatio's cool, so it'll be good.
Let's bounce. It's been fun,
Molly.
                                                            
Blake and Luke get up and walk away. Molly shouts after
them.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
So we're done?
                                                            
 
EXT. AMPHITHEATRE - DAY
                                                            
Lee is in the back on his drums, Blake is center, Luke is to
Blake's right, Carmen is to Blake's left. Destiny is next to
Lee, behind Luke. The amphitheater seats 1,000, it's a full
house.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Uh it's an honor to be here in
front of these hundreds of
people... I'm kinda nervous. This
first song is called How We Beat
The Devil. I like it, hope you do,
too.
                                                            
They rock the house. Everyone starts cheering.
                                                            
                       LUKE
That wasn't so hard. So I want to
do something special here.
                                                            

55.

Luke takes Destiny in a power hug and leaps in to the crowd.
They are caught and crowd surf for a bit before they are
returned to stage.
                                                            
                       LUKE
That was awesome.
                                                            
Carmen takes Blake's mic.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Now that we've all had our fun,
this next song is called Wait.
                                                            
They jam it hard. Every one is cheering.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok, this next one I wrote a long
time ago. It's called the Generic
Blues.
                                                            
                       CROWD
What's your band called?
                                                            
Some girl in the audience has an orgasm. Every one cheers
for the band.
                                                            
Blake just stares wide eyed.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Thank you! We are... Electric
Dynamite!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Electric dynamite? Are you
serious?
                                                            
                       CARMEN
Go with it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
No! That's a terrible name!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I agree.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
You got a better one?
                                                            
Jack leaps on stage.
                                                            

56.

                       JACK
They are the Priests Of The Devil!
This next song is called 2112,
it's by Rush!
                                                            
They play the song, every one goes crazy.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Ok, so that was fun. This next
song is considered to be the
greatest song in the world, it's
called I Wish I Was A Fish.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Ok, so that was all the songs we
had... so peace!
                                                            
A helicopter comes and picks them up by sky hook.
                                                            
 
EXT. A SUBURBAN HOUSE, 20 YEARS LATER - DAY
                                                            
It's a nice place is the suburbs of Chicago. A Porsche is
parked in the drive way.
                                                            
INSIDE
                                                            
An older Blake and Carmen are sitting on the couch. Tammy
the Tele is on a stand in the corner. Carmen's bass is next
to it.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Well dudes, this is my place. Yep.
I Wish I Was A Fish has been voted
the greatest song in the world,
Priests Of The Devil has been
voted the best band next to Pink
Floyd and the Doors. I bought this
house in the suburbs of Chicago a
while back with Carmen, bought
that Porsche, too. The band
drifted apart.
                                                            
                       CARMEN
It was a success story, really.
Lee, Jack and Kyle died in a
tragic accident involving a photo
op with a panda.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Luke finally married Destiny, and
they moved to New York. I haven't
heard from them in years. She's a
famous artist now. He's an
            (MORE)

57.

                       BLAKE (cont'd)
accountant.
                                                            
There's a knock on the door. Blake gets up to answer it.
                                                            
                       BOB
Dude, my name is Bob. I love your
music, and you should get the band
back together.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
No way. Our drummer was mauled by
a panda. And Luke and Destiny
wouldn't do it.
                                                            
                       BOB
But what if they did?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
We have no drummer.
                                                            
                       BOB
I'm a drummer!
                                                            
                       BLAKE
No.
                                                            
Blake closes the door.
                                                            
                       BOB
      (through the door)
Come on, man!
                                                            
 
INT. BOB'S KITCHEN - DAY
                                                            
                       BOB
So I went over and talked to Blake
today.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
Blake Moore? I interveied him
probably 20 years ago for Rolling
Stone.
                                                            
                       BOB
Cool!
                                                            
                       MOLLY
Yep. I didn't know you like
Priests of The Devil.
                                                            

58.

                       BOB
Yeah, I'm trying to get them back
together.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
Didn't their drummer like, die?
                                                            
                       BOB
Yes in a tragic panda accident.
                                                            
                       MOLLY
He was the driving force, Bob.
They won't get together without a
drummer.
                                                            
                       BOB
I could do it!
                                                            
                       MOLLY
Even if you did, Luke and Destiny
wouldn't come back.
                                                            
                       BOB
Wouldn't it be great if they did?
                                                            
                       MOLLY
It would be amazing.
                                                            
 
INT. LUKE'S LOFT - DAY
                                                            
Luke's SG hangs on a wall. Canvasses litter the space. There
is a white leather couch and a big TV on it's facing wall.
They have hard wood floors. The kitchen is attached by a low
wall. It is only these two rooms. A deflated air mattress
lays on one wall. Luke and Destiny are on the couch.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hey, do you think Blake would ever
want to get the band together?
                                                            
                       DESTINY
I don't know. That would be sweet
though. Too bad Lee got mauiled by
a panda.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah, it sucks.
                                                            
                       DESTINY
We should go see them!
                                                            

59.

                       LUKE
Ok, sounds cool. Let's pack up and
go.
                                                            
 
INT. BLAKE'S LIVING ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Blake and Carmen are eating cereal in their bath robes.
There is a knock on the door.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I got it.
                                                            
Blake gets up and opens the door. Luke and Destiny are there
with some bags. Luke is carrying his guitar and an amp.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Can we stay a little bit?
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (laughs)
Sure, dude. I'll show you the
guest room.
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT AND BACK IN
                                                            
Blake, Carmen, Luke, and Destiny are sitting in a circle
jamming out. There is a knock on the door.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
I got it.
                                                            
Blake gets up and opens the door. Bob is standing there with
his drum kit in a wagon.
                                                            
                       BOB
hate to interrupt the jam session,
but looks like you need a drummer.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
You know dude, you got spunk. Not
really, i just always wanted to
say that. Go get a case of pop and
we're good to go. You better be
good.
                                                            
Bob goes back to the car and brings back a cooler.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Well done. Come on in.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
Dudes, this Bob, our new drummer.
                                                            

60.

                       LUKE
      (unison with the
       rest)
Hey Bob.
                                                            
                       DESTINY
Nice hair!
                                                            
                       BOB
Thanks. want to make out?
                                                            
                       DESTINY
No.
                                                            
                       BLAKE
      (as the narrator)
And that is the story of how Blake
and Luke became rock legends. Two
years later they were inducted
into the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame. Blake and Carmen finally got
married when Blake got over his
commitment issues, and they had a
kid. Luke and Destiny had one,
too. Bob never really settled
down. Blake taught his kid to
rock, Luke did the same with his.
They started a band, too, called
the Two Man Acoustical Group. They
are pretty good, and are working
on the greatest song in the world.
What of Horatio, you ask? He lived
a long and joyous life, and died
peacefully at the age of 83. He
was at a concert.
                                                            
Fade to credits and play I Wish I Was A Fish.
