"POTTY MOUTH"
by Josh Barbee (fleshofthewicked@yahoo.com)

Rated: R   Genre: Comedy   User Review: **
Very first draft of crude comedy most people are probably not going to find as funny as I do. Enjoy!


If you steal this, you suck.



INT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - BEDROOM - DAY
                                                            
The sun shines through the partially drawn blinds covering
the single window of the bedroom.
                                                            
                       VOICE (O.S.)
Are you up yet? Hello?
                                                            
The twin bed shoved firmly against the wall holds atop its
ruffled-sheeted surface a young man, early twenties, by the
name of GAVIN FOLEY.

Foley sleeps heavily, bags under his swollen eyes as if he
was up all night crying.
                                                            
                       VOICE (O.S.; cont'd)
It has to be almost ten by now.
Why don't you have a goddamn clock
in here?
                                                            
Next to Foley's bed is a nightstand which supports a shotty
art deco lamp, and a nice picture of Foley and a very pretty
young lady named SHONNA.

By their photogenic interaction, it is obvious they are a
couple...or were at the time the picture had been taken.
                                                            
                       VOICE (O.S.; cont'd)
Christ almighty, wake up!
                                                            
Foley's eyes slowly peel open. He is in no state to be
conscious by the look of death on his face.

His eyes go immediately to the framed photo on the
nightstand.

Foley climbs out of bed, draws the blinds all the way and
opens the window, taking in the morning breeze...and moments
later tosses the picture of him and Shonna outside and slams
the window shut, dropping the blinds fully.
                                                            
 
INT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - HALLWAY - DAY
                                                            
Foley pokes his head out of his bedroom, looking down either
end of the empty hallway.

He kicks open a door further down, peering in:

Nothing but an empty bathroom.

Foley continues to the end of the hallway, looking

2.

suspiciously into the empty kitchen and living room beyond.

The apartment is completely void of life beyond his own.

He listens for a moment...

Silence.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Voices in my head. Not normal at
all.
                                                            
Foley disappears into the restroom.
                                                            
 
EXT. TALON'S HOUSE - FRONT DOOR - DAY
                                                            
The front foor opens, revealing TALON. He holds a golf club
over his shoulder with one hand and removes an unlit
cigarette from his mouth with the other.

Despite his cool presence, the not-quite-silk robe and
too-small-for-his-feet slippers he wears do little to help
maintain that status.
                                                            
                       TALON
Rolly Poley Foley! What is up?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Your cigarette's not lit.
                                                            
                       TALON
I'm trying to quit. Check out this
sweet golf club I found at work.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
It matches your ugly robe and
slippers.
                                                            
                       TALON
Got that right. Come on in.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT. TALON'S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM
                                                            
A black and white television sitting atop a wicker chair and
playing an episode of "The Andy Griffith Show" is shut off
manually by Talon.

Behind him, Foley looks around the nearly empty, rather
large living room.


3.

Besides the wicker chair playing t.v. stand, the only other
piece of furniture in the room is a small, ratty couch.
                                                            
                       TALON
What brings you by, Rolly?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I haven't been fat since the sixth
grade. Can you stop calling me
that?
                                                            
                       TALON
But it rhymes.
                                                            
Foley plops down on the couch, resulting in a cloud of couch
dust to rise up around him.
                                                            
                       TALON (cont'd)
Come on. let's go outside.
                                                            
Talon walks out into the backyard via a sliding glass door.

Foley COUGHS uncontrollably.
                                                            
 
EXT. TALON'S HOUSE - BACKYARD - DAY
                                                            
Talon hits golf balls over the wooden backyard fence and at
an unoccupied police car parked across the street.

Foley stands behind him, far enough away not to be caught in
Talon's swing.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Shonna and I broke up.
                                                            
                       TALON
Aw, boo man. I'm sorry.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
It was sorta mutual...even though
it was her idea.
                                                            
                       TALON
You're not gonna be all mopey and
sad at me, are you?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Maybe. A little bit.
                                                            
                       TALON
You sound, right now, like a
homosexual...if a homosexual were
talking about a girl he was in
            (MORE)

4.

                       TALON (cont'd)
love with...which I know doesn't
make any sense, so don't even
bother pointing it out.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
It makes sense if the homosexual
is a lady. They come in that
flavor too, just like us heteros.
                                                            
                       TALON
That's right. Speaking of which,
there was this hot ass lesbian
that I used to work with that was
all over me all the time. She
quit, I think because she couldn't
have me, even though she says it
was because of all the sexual
harassment. I told her "Bitch, you
can't spell sexual harassment
without 'sex' and 'her ass'". Boo
yah!
                                                            
Talon sends another ball soaring over the fence.

The ball smashes through the windshield of the cop car.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Why am I friends with you?
                                                            
                       TALON
We have a bet. No matter how
obnoxious I get, you can't ever
stop being my friend, or you have
to pay me ten thousand dollars.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I remember. It was rhetorical.
                                                            
Talon hits another ball.
                                                            
                       TALON
FORE!...skin.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Somewhat rhetorical.
                                                            
 
INT. GAMIN' SANE - DAY
                                                            
BEEKER, the lone employee on duty of this video game store,
sits atop a counter, watching a television on a kiosk in
front of him.

5.


Foley enters the store, and walks around Beeker to get
behind the counter.

Distracted by the humor the cartoons he watches, it takes
Beeker a moment to realize he isn't alone, and it frightens
him.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Jesus, Folds! You nearly gave me a
heart attack.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I walked right by you.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Well, don't sneak up on me. Thanks
for being late, by the way. I love
working alone when the schedule
clearly states there will be two
employees on the clock at noon.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Give me a break, Beeker.
                                                            
Beeker jumps down off the counter, noticing Foley's solemn
demeaner.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Why do you look like you're about
to cry like a kid with a skinned
knee?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (choked up)
...skinned heart.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Have you been dumped?
                                                            
TWO QUICK CUTS:
                                                            
Beeker grabs two beverages from a cooler; Beeker locks up
the store.
                                                            
BACK TO SCENE
                                                            
Beeker and Foley sit on a shelf behind the counter, each
with a drink.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Remember when I tore you a new one
about being late? I take it back.
                                                            

6.

                       FOLEY
You didn't really tear
anything...but apology accepted.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
I can't believe she dropped you.
She was so fine.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Dude...
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Sorry. She was the one you brought
to my birthday party that no one
came to, right?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Yep.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Yeah, I'm not sorry I said she was
fine. I retract that apology.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Doesn't matter...I can't get upset
over a woman I'm not with anymore.
No matter how in love with her I
was...am.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
You can always be protective over
someone you love. But, since you
are single now, you know my sister
always had a thing for you.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Your sister?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
She made those cupcakes you said
you liked so much at my birthday
party that no one else came to.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
She's gotta be half my age.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
You're twenty-two?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Thanks for the talk, and the
caffiene. We should probably get
to work.
                                                            

7.

                                         QUICK CUT TO:
                                                            
Foley and Beeker, each strapped with a plastic guitar
controller, stand in front of the kiosk, rocking out to a
music-based video game.
                                                            
 
EXT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - FRONT DOOR - NIGHT
                                                            
Foley walks up to his front door after a long day of work, a
bag of groceries in hand.

He ceases movement, nerves taking over, at the sight of his
open front door.

Cautiously, Foley pushes the door open all the way and
stares into his pitch black apartment.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Hello?
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM
                                                            
Foley walks in, setting his groceries on the ground and
taking from the bag a loaf of bread.

Foley flips the light switch, holding the bread like a
weapon.

Light fills the room, revealing ANGELO "THE MANGELO" FOLEY,
Gavin Foley's older brother, sitting on the couch with an
open book in his hands.

Both Foley's are startled at the sight of the other.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Manjy?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Gavin! You're home! Come here...
                                                            
Mangelo sets his book down and stands to give his brother a
hug.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What are you doing here?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
She kicked me out, G. She finally
kicked me out.
                                                            

8.

                       FOLEY
That's too bad. What happened?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
I washed the whites with the
colors again.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You know how Mom gets about her
laundry.
                                                            
Mangelo nods his head in understanding.
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - LATER
                                                            
The brothers sit side by side on the couch, a beer a piece
in hand.

Empty beer bottles line the coffee table top in front of
them.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
How did you know which apartment
was mine?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
The guy outside told me.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
The landlord?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
I don't think so...some dude
checking the mail out front. He
looked really excited about all
his letters and stuff.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
EXT. APARTMENT COMPLEX - MAILBOX - EARLIER
                                                            
A man stands in front of an open mailbox.

As the man flips through each piece of mail in his hand, he
expresses an astonished, yet refrained, "AWWWWWWW" with
every envelope he looks over.
                                                            
                                         CUT BACK TO:
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM
                                                            

9.

                       FOLEY
Yeah, that's the landlord. He
likes getting rent checks.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Who wouldn't?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
So, he just let you in?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
I didn't ask. I thought that'd be
a little intrusive.
                                                            
Foley looks over to duct taped and bungie corded closed
front door.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
That why my door won't stay
closed?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
I had to break the lock. Couldn't
get your hide-a-key rock open to
let myself in.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I don't have a hide-a-key.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Probably just a rock then. It cool
if I crash here for a bit?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
That's fine. I'll grab you a
blanket.
                                                            
Foley sets the beer bottle down on the coffee table, gets up
from the couch, and disappears into the dark hallway.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
      (calling to Art.)
I'd prefer your bed, actually.
Back's been acting up again.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (O.S.)
What the hell?!
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Don't overreact, Gavin! Jesus,
I'll sleep on the couch if that's
what you want!
                                                            

10.

                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - BATHROOM
                                                            
Foley stands in a puddle of water covering the entirety of
the bathroom floor, overflowing from the surface of the
toilet bowl.

Mangelo walks into the hallway, standing just outside the
bathroom.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Did you hear me? About the couch?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What did you do in here?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Your floor's all wet.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I know that! What happened?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Looks like the toilet overflowed.
Sucks, man.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You didn't do this?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
I haven't stepped foot out of your
living room all day. Was too busy
reading to go to the bathroom. But
now that I think about it, I have
to go pretty bad now. Cool if I
use your sink?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Can you just grab the mop? It's in
the kitchen.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
On it.
                                                            
Mangelo disappears from the hallway.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
And stay out of the sink!
                                                            
Foley examines the inside of the toilet bowl...

All looks normal.

11.


He lifts the lid off the back of the toilet and looks
inside...

Again, nothing out of the ordinary.

Foley puts the lid back on and flushes the toilet.

It flushes without a problem.

Foley is stumped.

Mangelo returns to the hallway, mop in hand.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Why you still standing in it, bro?
That's gross.
                                                            
 
INT. FOLEY'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Foley sleeps, the room lit by a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
nitelight.
                                                            
                       VOICE (O.S.)
Hey.
                                                            
Foley's eyes partially open.
                                                            
                       VOICE (O.S.; contd)
Gavin Foley, I'm talking to you.
                                                            
Foley sits up, alert.
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM
                                                            
Foley peaks out of the hallway and into the living room
where Mangelo SNORES in a deep sleep on the couch.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
      (sleep talking)
Whatchoo talkin' about, Bruce
Willis?
                                                            
Foley turns and heads into the restroom.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - BATHROOM
                                                            
Foley shuts the door behind him, and stands at the open
toilet, ready to relieve himself.
                                                            

12.

                       VOICE
DON'T DO THAT!
                                                            
Foley jumps back in fright, slamming into the wall behind
him, urine flying everywhere.
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - SHOWER
                                                            
Foley stands in the shower with a horrified and perplexed
look on his face as he washes off his urine soaked body.
                                                            
 
INT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - KITCHEN - DAY
                                                            
Foley and Mangelo sit across from one another at the kitchen
table.

Foley eats a sad bowl of cereal; a giant, untouched burrito
sits on a plate in front of Mangelo.

Mangelo is hidden behind a newspaper.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You been hearing any weird voices?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Not really.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
But you have heard it a little?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Maybe a snow globe?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What?
                                                            
Mangelo looks at Foley.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Sorry. I'm not really paying
attention to you. Just answering
randomly. What was the question?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Nothing. Nevermind.
                                                            
Mangelo goes back to reading.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
How's Mom been?
                                                            

13.

                       MANGELO
I don't know. I keep to myself
mostly.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I left before Dad...you know.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Got diagnosed with death?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You lived with her through it all.
How did she deal with losing him?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
I don't talk to her about that
shit. I prefer not to be bothered
with other people's problems.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
It's been almost four years. Does
she seem happy again?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Maybe you should talk to her about
all this.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I can't. I hate her so much.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Yeah, she's pretty much the worst
mom a guy could ask for.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Dad's really better off.
                                                            
Mangelo reluctantly crumples up the newspaper and tosses it
on the floor.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Spill it.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Spill what?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Beans. Why you bringing up Mom and
Dad?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Shonna and I broke up.
                                                            

14.

                       MANGELO
Ah, here we go.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I think I was truly in love with
her, and I didn't fully realize it
until recently. And it hurts.
                                                            
Mangelo shoves burrito into his face.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
      (mouth full)
You're really killing my buzz,
man. Let's talk about something
else.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What buzz? It's seven thirty in
the morning. Are you drunk
already?
                                                            
Mangelo puts the burrito down. He looks behind him to the
sunlight pouring in through the kitchen window.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
It's morning? I thought that was
just some crazy-strong porch
light.
                                                            
 
INT. GAMIN' SANE - DAY
                                                            
The store is completely void of customers.

Foley and Beeker sit on top of a glass display cabinet.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Mighty Max, Mighty Max!
                                                            
Foley glances over at him.
                                                            
                       BEEKER (cont'd)
You remember that? It was like
Polly Pocket, but for dudes.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I always liked Polly Pocket
better.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Me too! 'Cause she was hot, right?
                                                            

15.

                       FOLEY
What? No!
                                                            
                       BEEKER
What do you mean "no"? Why else
would you like it better.
                                                            
Foley and Beeker both look at each other in disgust. They
both look ashamed now.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Beeker, let me ask you something.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Let me ask YOU something first.
                                                            
Beeker leans away from Foley, lifting one butt cheek off the
counter.

The glass under Beeker fogs up.
                                                            
                       BEEKER (cont'd)
How does that smell?
                                                            
Foley's face distorts at the unwelcome stench in the air. He
immediately jumps down from the counter and puts distance
between himself and Beeker.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Have you ever felt like you
couldn't live without someone?
Like if you couldn't be with them,
you might as well be dead?
                                                            
Beeker sits staring at Foley until finally his face grows
disgusted at his own smell.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Jesus, what did I eat?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I don't know what to do anymore.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
I've never felt like I needed
anybody that much. I'm very self
reliant.
                                                            
Beeker jumps down from the counter top, accidentally banging
his elbow on the corner of the display case.

He grabs his elbow in pain.
                                                            

16.

                       BEEKER
Ah! I think I'm bleeding! Get me a
band-aid!
                                                            
INT. GAMIN' SANE - LATER
                                                            
Foley bandages the "boo boo" on Beeker's elbow for him.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Careful.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I think I need to win her back.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Throw a party.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
To celebrate the possible
reconciliation?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
No. To show her you don't need
her.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
But I do need her.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
You need to act like you don't.
Invite a bunch of people,
especially attractive young
ladies, including Shonna, and show
her you're having a hell of a time
without her. She'll be begging you
to take her back.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
That could work. Except I don't
know a lot of women.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Leave that to me. I'll bring the
girls, you just bring the cup.
                                                            
 
EXT. PARK BENCH - DAY
                                                            
A woman, SHONNA, sits down on a park bench in preparation of
devouring her container of salad.

As she prepares to dig in, she spots Foley approaching her.
                                                            

17.

                       SHONNA
Gavin?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Hey...
                                                            
Shonna sets her food down next to her and stands.

Foley awkwardly stands at the other end of the bench.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
What are you doing here?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I was just walking by.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
You were just walking by the park
by my work where I used to meet
you for lunch every day for the
last two years? Weird
coincidence...
                                                            
Foley saunters over to her.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Yeah, well, I actually wanted to
see you. Talk to you, I mean. I'm
having a few friends over--
                                                            
                       TOTEM (O.S.)
Hi there!
                                                            
Foley turns to find a taller, hunkier man than he by the
name of TOTEM, walk up to them.

Totem ignores Foley completely, wrapping Shonna in his
bear-like arms and squeezing her tight.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
      (to Shonna)
I'm not late, am I?
                                                            
                       SHONNA
No. Just got here myself.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
      (to Foley)
Sorry buddy, she's taken.
                                                            
Foley doesn't even bothering trying to hide the scowling
glare he gives Totem.
                                                            

18.

                       TOTEM (cont'd)
I'm kidding. Seriously though, we
don't have any change.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
T, this is Gavin.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Oh, nice to meet you.
                                                            
Totem extends his hand to Foley.

Foley reluctantly shakes it.
                                                            
                       TOTEM (cont'd)
Gamma's a weird name. Isn't that
what the Incredible Hulk is made
out of?
                                                            
Foley rips his hand away.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
That's not my name. And what
exactly does "T" stand for?
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Totem.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Like the pole? Oh, you're tall. I
get it.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
It's just a nickname. My mom
walked in on me once, and I had
this chick sitting on my
shoulders...then another chick on
HER shoulders!
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You must have tall ceilings.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
That was the craziest Columbus Day
ever.
                                                            
Totem is clearly pleases with himself.

Shonna looks away, embarrased.
                                                            
                       TOTEM (cont'd)
We were naked.
                                                            

19.

                       FOLEY
I gathered that.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
      (defensively)
Not my mom though.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Shonna)
So, I'm having a party this
weekend. I thought you'd like to
come by, hang out a bit?
                                                            
                       SHONNA
I'm not so sure about that.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
      (to Shonna)
Not sure?
      (to Foley)
Hell yeah! We'll be there, bro!
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Totem)
You'll both be there then.
That's...nice.
      (to Shonna)
Enjoy your lunch.
                                                            
Foley turns quickly and walks away.

Totem raises his hand to Shonna's face, grinning stupidly at
her.

She looks around to make sure no one is watching, then
reluctantly slaps him a quick high five.
                                                            
 
EXT. WARPED PARK BENCH - DAY
                                                            
 
EXT. APARTMENT BUILDING - DAY
                                                            
A lone kitten sits on the sidewalk outside the buidling.

The landlord walks by; stops in his tracks at the sight of
the creature. He gently lifts the kitten off the ground in
both hands.
                                                            
 

20.

INT. FOLEY'S KITCHEN - DAY
                                                            
Foley opens the refrigerator door, being met with a series
of "meows" seemingly coming from within the fridge.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What the hell?
      (to the heavens)
If all my stuff is going to come
to life, can you make it all human
speaking? I don't speak cat...I
don't need a goddamn cat
refrigerator.
                                                            
Foley grabs two beers from the fridge and slams the door
shut.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
Stupid ass aliens...
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S LIVING ROOM
                                                            
Foley is passing by when Mangelo walks in through the front
door, carrying a gigantic bag of pet food.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Hey.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Hey. Did you get my note?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Yeah, I didn't use the toilet. I
had to share the litter box
though.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Litter box? Why is there a novelty
sized bag of pet food in my living
room?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
We got a cat! Well, you got a cat,
since technically I don't live
here. But someone left us a cat
outside your front door. I
couldn't not bring it in.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Where is it?
                                                            

21.

                       MANGELO
He got stuck behind the fridge.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Ohhhhh...
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Don't worry, I'll lure him out
with the fresh scent of...
      (reads pet food
       label)
Puppy Chow? Now I gotta leave
again.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Whatever. I'll be in the bathroom
if you need me.
                                                            
Foley disappears into the hall and locks himself away in the
restroom.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
      (calling to Foley)
Oh, and somehow your landlord
found out about the cat and wants
a pet deposit by the first of next
month! Okay?
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S BATHROOM
                                                            
Foley sits against the wall, next to a litter box on the
floor, directly across from the toilet, staring at the
closed toilet lid.

He pops open one of the beers and has a drink. One moment
staring at the toilet, the next springing forward to lift
the lid.
                                                            
Foley, back against the wall, waits, watching the silent
toilet for a moment.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You awake...Toilet?
                                                            
No response.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
I believe you. Unless I really am
crazy, and I imagined everything
about our conversation, I believe
you wouldn't be talking to me
unless I was truly meant to be
            (MORE)

22.

                       FOLEY (cont'd)
with her. I definitely believe I
could be dead before next month,
but that part of it isn't even
factoring into my decision to try
again. Because, you know what,
goddamn it, I DO love her. And
there isn't a thing left in this
world I care for more than being
with the woman I love.
                                                            
Still nothing from the toilet.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
It doesn't even matter if you ever
speak again, because I am starting
to think there is some screw lose
in my brain anyway. Why else would
I give up on true love when I had
it right in front of me? That's
crazier than me talking to you
right now. I just wish I could
have been as honest with Shonna as
I am being with my toilet.
                                                            
Foley laughs to himself.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
I will win her back...I have to
win her back. I'm not even a
quarter of the man she made me.
Thanks for the talk Toilet. You're
a good listener.
                                                            
Foley stands up to leave.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Sorry, what? I wasn't listening.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Thank God. I really thought I was
insane for a minute.
                                                            
                       VOICE
In love, huh? Just don't screw it
up. I don't want to be a toilet
forever. Not that I think I will
be, once you're dead and all, but
if you don't succeed, that means I
don't succeed and there might be
some type of punishment for that.
                                                            

23.

                       FOLEY
You drink?
                                                            
                       VOICE
Usually just urine, but I can go
for one of those beers.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Can you see me?
                                                            
                       VOICE
No, I don't have eyes. I HEARD you
open it, obviously.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (mouthing)
(You don't have ears.)
                                                            
Foley pours the remainder of his beer into the toilet bowl.
                                                            
                       VOICE
      (mouth full)
Flush please.
                                                            
Foley flushes the toilet.

The toilet's thirst has been satisfied.
                                                            
                       VOICE
It'd be nice if it wasn't so
diluted with toilet water. So,
what's your plan of action?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Throwing a party. Invited her.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Alright, get her in a public
setting. Show her you can have fun
without her...good, good.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Problem is, she's bringing her new
boyfriend.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Danger Will Robinson! Danger!
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Yeah, I know. It was an accident.
But the guy's a total douche, so
I'm not too worried about him.
                                                            

24.

                       VOICE
This party could serve as a
potential problem for me. Think of
all the ass to mouth I'll be
getting...
                                                            
                       FOLEY
No one will come in here.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Will there be girls?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
There's supposed to be.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Maybe let a few of them slide on
through...
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You're disgusting.
                                                            
                       VOICE
      (defensive)
I'm a fuckin' toilet!
                                                            
 
INT. FOLEY'S LIVING ROOM - DAY
                                                            
The front doorbell RINGS.

Mangelo awakes on the couch and gets up to answer it.

Upon opening the door, he finds Talon on the other side.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Hey, I remember you. You went to
school with my brother. That's so
weird that you're here.
                                                            
                       TALON
What? It's not a coincidence. I
came purposely to see your
brother.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Oh, that does make more sense.
Come on in.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            

25.

INT. FOLEY'S BEDROOM
                                                            
Foley wakes up in bed to find Talon staring down at him.
                                                            
                       TALON
Mornin' sexy.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Mornin', dick nugget.
                                                            
Foley sits up.

Talon sits down next to him.
                                                            
                       TALON
How's life? You doing okay?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I have a plan. Things should get
better.
                                                            
Foley notices what Talon wears on his feet.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
Are you wearing cleets?
                                                            
                       TALON
Golf shoes.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Don't tear up my carpet. What are
you doing here anyways?
                                                            
                       TALON
Just wanted to stop by, see how
you were. I got fired this morning
and the buses don't run for
another half an hour.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Fired? For what?
                                                            
                       TALON
Someone was stealing and they
automatically assumed it was me.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I'm sorry, Talon. Where did you
work again?
                                                            
                       TALON
Golf range.
                                                            

26.

                       FOLEY
Oh, that new one down the street?
                                                            
                       TALON
Yep.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
That's a nice range.
                                                            
                       TALON
It really is, isn't it?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
They have good club sandwiches
there.
                                                            
                       TALON
The best!
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I can't believe they thought you
were stealing.
                                                            
                       TALON
I know.
                                                            
Talon scratches his nose with a golf glove-covered hand.
                                                            
Suddenly, and without warning, Foley jumps off the bed and
grabs something off the nightstand before bolting it out the
door in his pajamas.
                                                            
 
INT. VIDEO GAME STORE - DAY
                                                            
Foley runs into the store wearing his pajamas and his
nametag. He sees a man standing behind the counter.

The man is fuming, he's so angry. His scowl turns to that of
Foley.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Mr. Dickensen...what are you doing
here?
                                                            
                       DICKENSEN
Where the hell have you been,
Gavin? I had to come in to open
the store today and you are three
hours late. And what the hell are
you wearing?
                                                            

27.

                       FOLEY
What happened to Beeker?
                                                            
                       DICKENSEN
I don't know. He never showed up.
If this company had any money to
hire any other employees I'd fire
both of you right now! Lucky for
you, we're broke. Get a hold of
him and get his ass here now!
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Will do...sir.
                                                            
Dickensen storms out of the store.
                                                            
Foley goes behind the counter and grabs the store phone,
dialing Beeker's number.

A cell phone RINGTONE can be heard from somewhere in the
store.

Foley hangs up in confusion.
                                                            
The ringtone goes silent.
                                                            
                       BEEKER (OS)
      (whispering)
Is he gone?
                                                            
Foley looks around in an attempt to find his coworker.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Beeker?
                                                            
From a closed cardboard box sitting behind the counter, a
hand holding a cell phone punches through the top.

Foley runs to help. He grabs the hand and assists Beeker out
of the cardboard box.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Phew...close one.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What were you doing in there?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
You know that fat kid who comes in
with his mom who won't let him
rent the R-rated movies but lets
him play GTA? He bet me I couldn't
fit in the box, so I proved his
little double-D'd tits wrong.

                       BEEKER (cont'd)
Dickensen walked in while I was in
there. I didn't want to get fired,
so I stayed hidden until you
showed up just now.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You didn't think he'd fire you for
just not showing up at all?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
He didn't, did he?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
No, I guess not. Dickensen said he
had to open the store...when did
you make this bet?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Last night.
      (whispering)
I fell asleep.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You're an idiot. Watch the store.
I'm going to the bathroom.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
You've been using the store
facilites a lot lately. Toilet
backed up?
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:

The kitten sits on the toilet seat, lapping up water from
within the toilet bowl.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Stop! Stop it! This is rape! And
you're a kitten...which makes me a
PET-ophile. Seriously, get your
tongue out of my face.

INT. FOLEY'S CAR - DAY
                                                            
Foley is on the road, a fast food bag in the passenger's
seat, indicating he is returning to work from his lunch.

The car starts to stall and Foley quickly pulls it to the
side of the road.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
No! Car, you suck!
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
EXT. FOLEY'S CAR
                                                            
Foley steps out of the car and goes to the front of it,
popping the hood to check the engine. He scans the insides
of the car, touching this this and that, but looking lost
altogether.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I don't know what I'm doing, and
my fries are getting cold...
                                                            
Foley pulls out a broken fan belt.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
That can't possibly be the
problem.
                                                            
                       TOTEM (OS)
Hey...Yanni, right?
                                                            
Foley looks up to see Totem, sitting in his truck, parked in
the street next to him.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Not even close.
                                                            
Totem laughs, as if Foley is joking.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Right on, man. You want a ride?
                                                            
Foley's stomach growls. He sighs as he looks through his
windshield at the cooling food in the passenger's seat of
his car.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Yes, please.
                                                            
 

30.

INT. TOTEM'S TRUCK - DAY
                                                            
Totem drives, an awkward grin on his face.

Foley, sitting in the passenger's seat, keeps to himself as
he digs in to his lunch.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
So...big party tomorrow, huh?
That's gonna rooooock....
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Mm-hmm.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
You like DC, man? I can blare it.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I don't know who that is.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
You haven't heard DC? Back in
Black, Hells Bells?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
AC/DC?
                                                            
                       TOTEM
      (singing)
Hiiigh-way to Hell?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I know who AC/DC is... or are. You
can't really abbreviate that,
though. That's where I was
confused.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
You're supposed to abbreviate the
names of bands you like. Zeppelin,
Sabbath, Alanis...that's how other
people know you like them a lot.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
But that doesn't work with AC/DC.
DC could be the name of an actual
band...in fact I'm pretty sure it
is the name of a popular Christian
band, in which case that would be
a completely different
conversation.
                                                            

31.

                       TOTEM
You're thinking of JC. There is a
Christian band called JC.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Can't argue with that. It would
make much more sense.
                                                            
Foley finishes his burger.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
I know this may be an awkward
question to ask, you being
Shonna's new boyfriend and me
being her ex--
                                                            
                       TOTEM
You two used to date?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
...slightly more awkward was that.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Sorry, bro. She never mentioned
that.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I guess that answers the question
of "does she ever say anything
about me?" then.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
No offense, Latchkey...
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (correcting)
Gavin.
                                                            
                       TOTEM (cont'd)
...but you and I can't be friends
now that I have that information.
I have to hate you and you me,
it's sort of like a rule.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
We're covered on my end, don't
worry about that.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
I can still come to the party,
right?
                                                            
 

32.

INT. FOLEY'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
This party is bumpin', fo sho!...or something less
grammatically incorrect/ unintelligent, but you get my
point. There are people everywhere.

Amidst these people, Mangelo, who wears a backwards hat with
some words stitched into it, can be seen sitting on the
couch, his nose deep in a book.

Maybe 'people everywhere' was a bit of a stretch...there are
five people "partying" in the living room, Mangelo included.

Foley and Beeker stand in the center of the room, drinks in
hand, trying to talk over the blaring music.

Talon attempts to open the bathroom door but finds it
locked.

And Foley's astonished landlord stands in the kitchen,
having a staring contest with the cat.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Beeker)
Dude, what time did you put on the
invitations?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
      (correcting)
E-vitations!
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
I sent e-vites to over sixty
people! I don't know what the hold
up is.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
If girls don't start showing up,
I'm afraid you'll start hitting on
me after a few drinks!
                                                            
                       BEEKER
      (flirty)
That's funny! You're funny! Can I
freshen your drink?
                                                            
Talon joins them.
                                                            
Foley takes Beeker's drink from him.
                                                            

33.

                       TALON
      (to Foley)
I have to piss! Why is your
bathroom locked?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Broken...ask the landlord if you
can use his!
                                                            
Talon goes into the kitchen to see the landlord, who is
lifting the cat's tail and staring confused at the pet's
"parts".
                                                            
                       TALON
      (under breath)
Screw that.
                                                            
Talon spots a screwdriver on top of the fridge amidst other
crap and takes it with him on the way out of the kitchen.
                                                            
Totem and Shonna show up, walking through the front door
into the sad, little gathering.
                                                            
Foley sets the drinks down on the coffee table and goes to
meet them instantly.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Shonna)
Hey, you made it!
                                                            
                       TOTEM
We weren't going to come, but
Shonna convinced me otherwise.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Totem)
What? You asked if you could still
come to the party...
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Dude, come on! Help a brother out!
We're enemies now, so act like you
hate me. Didn't we talk about
this?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
No, that isn't something most
'enemies' discuss beforehand.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
      (to Foley)
Can I talk to you...alone?
                                                            

34.

                       FOLEY
      (to Shonna)
Sure.
                                                            
Shonna makes her way down the hallway towards Foley's room,
Foley following close behind.

On the way, Foley sees Talon in the restroom attempting to
lift the lid of the toilet that is being held down with a
safety lock.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Talon)
Hey, I told you it's broken!
                                                            
                       TALON
What'd you cement this shut?
                                                            
Foley continues into his bedroom with Shonna.

Talon ceases his attempts at breaking into the toilet and
spots the litter box in the corner.
                                                            
Totem sits down next to Mangelo, who pays him no mind,
keeping his eyes on his book.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
      (to Mangelo)
That looks like a good book.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
S'not a real book. It has a big
hole inside where I can store
stuff.
      (removes silver
       flask from book)
I've only ever used it for
alcohol.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
So what are you reading then?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
My hat...
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S ROOM
                                                            
Foley walks past shonna, standing behind her as she closes
the door for privacy.

Excited at the sight of the closing door, Foley begins to
remove his pants.
                                                            

35.

                       SHONNA
We need to have a serious talk--
                                                            
Shonna turns to find Foley with his pants halfway down.
                                                            
                       SHONNA (cont'd)
What's happening here?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Hmm?
                                                            
                       SHONNA
Why are your pants coming off?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Uhh...
                                                            
                       SHONNA
You didn't think I brought you in
here for sex, did you?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
No! You bought me these pants...I
thought you asked me in here
because you wanted your stuff
back?
                                                            
                       SHONNA
That's...thoughtful.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
So, what's up?
                                                            
                       SHONNA
I know why you asked me here,
Gavin. And it's not going to--can
you pull your pants up please?
      (Foley does)
It's not going to work. You've
made it clear how you felt about
me when we were together and now
that you think you want me back,
it isn't going to happen.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Shonna, I realize now what I had
and lost. I didn't see it before,
maybe I was too close to this to
see how good it was, but you are
the best thing that has ever
happened to me and I lost sight of
that. I see it now.
                                                            

36.

                       SHONNA
It's too late. I gave you my heart
and soul and I never got yours in
return. You never treated me like
I deserve and if we get back
together it will just go back to
that. You only want me now because
you can't have me, well that's too
bad.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
But--
                                                            
                       SHONNA
Goodbye, Gavin.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Stay a while. Let's talk like we
did when we were just friends.
Don't leave because of me.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
I'm leaving because this party is
lame. There aren't even any other
girls here.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S LIVING ROOM
                                                            
Shonna makes her way out into the living room where she
finds the men, and the cat, sitting in a circle in the
middle of the floor, playing a game of spin the bottle.

The spinning bottle comes to a stop, pointing at Talon.

Totem looks up at him, a disappointed look on his face.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Ah, man...
                                                            
                       SHONNA
What are you guys doing?
                                                            
                       TALON
Oh, thank God.
                                                            
Totem quickly jumps to his feet, facing Shonna.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Hey, babe, what's up?
                                                            

37.

                       SHONNA
Are you playing...spin the bottle?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
I don't think we fully thought
this through when we started.
                                                            
                       ASTONISHED LANDLORD
      (big creepy grin)
I did.
                                                            
                       TALON
Yeah, as drunk as we all are...
                                                            
                       ASTONISHED LANDLORD (OS)
I haven't had anything to drink.
                                                            
                       TALON (cont'd)
...I think the worst we thought
would happen was we would have to
kiss the cat.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
      (to cat)
That's funny. You're funny. Can I
get you a drink?
                                                            
                       SHONNA
      (to Totem)
You ready to go?
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Yeah, okay.
      (to circle of men)
Gentlemen, it's been a pleasure.
                                                            
Totem and Shonna leave.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Look at all the pussy up in here!
                                                            
 
INT. FOLEY'S RESTROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Foley is in the restroom, scooping a giant, solid lump out
of the litter box with a shovel.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to toilet)
This isn't exactly how I saw
tonight going.
                                                            

38.

                       TOILET
Yeah, that bitch really shot you
down good.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Yeah, she did...and don't call her
a bitch. How'd you know that
anyway.
                                                            
                       TOILET
...I could hear you guys. She was
yelling pretty loud.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
She stayed pretty calm actually,
and with the music as loud as it
was--
                                                            
                       TOILET
Hey, shut it for a second!
                                                            
Foley drops the lump into a nearby garbage can and stands
quietly a moment.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What is it?
                                                            
                       TOILET
Hm? Oh, nothing. Sorry, go ahead.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What was I saying?
                                                            
                       TOILET
I forget.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Damn it, me too. Doesn't matter I
guess. Maybe I should just get
used to the fact that I'll be dead
in a couple of weeks, huh?
                                                            
                       TOILET
Might make it easier.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
How will it happen? I mean, is
that something you know
beforehand?
                                                            
                       TOILET
Suicide.
                                                            

39.

                       FOLEY
What? Oh...really?
                                                            
                       TOILET
Yep. You decide you don't want to
live without what's-her-face and
you kill yourself.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I seem to be coping with it okay
right now.
                                                            
                       TOILET
It gets worse. Just wait. Ack!
Dead.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
"Ack"? What is that? What is
"ack"?
                                                            
                       TOILET
That's you, dying. I don't have
hands to do the international sign
of running a finger across my
throat, which I also don't have,
which represents dying, so
soooorrrrrry. Asshole.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Um...okay. I'm gonna go somewhere
else now.
                                                            
                       TOILET
That was harsh, I'm sorry.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Thanks, I apprecia--
                                                            
                       TOILET
Prick! Is prick less hurtful,
goddamn pansy baby! Why wait until
the end of the month? Do us all a
favor and end yourself now! Go get
a toaster and drop it, along with
your fat bulbus head, into my
mouth which happens to be a
fucking toilet bowl full of water!
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            

40.

EXT. FOLEY'S HALLWAY
                                                            
Beeker listens with his ear to the bathroom door as Foley
argues with the toilet.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Shut up! Shut your stupid
porcelain mouth, which I cleaned
for the first time in months
because I thought it'd be nice,
you're welcome, before I take a
fat dump in it!
                                                            
The door flies open.

Beeker jumps back as Foley exits the restroom.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Beeker)
I was just...
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Yelling at your toilet?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What? Nooooo. Cleaning. I was just
cleaning.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Was it...arguing...back?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You're drunk, right?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
      (high pitched and
       proud)
Waaaaaaaaasted.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Good. My toilet can talk. It came
to life a few days ago and told me
if I don't win Shonna back, I am
going to kill myself at the end of
the month. I THOUGHT we were
friends and now, for no good
reason at all, he's being a
monster cock.
                                                            
                       TOILET (OS)
Fuck you, you whiny puss!
                                                            

41.

                       BEEKER
You remember that scene in "Look
Who's Talking, Too" when Mikey has
that nightmare about the toilet? I
had to wear diapers for a month
after I saw that movie. Scared the
metaphorical and very literal shit
out of me.
                                                            
 
INT. FOLEY'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Beeker awakens on the floor, a cigarette in his mouth, the
cat sleeping soundly next to him.

He gets up and makes his way into the hallway, careful not
to step on Talon or the landlord who also rest on the floor.

Mangelo meanwhile, is wide awake on the couch, eating a
sandwich in the dark.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S RESTROOM
                                                            
Beeker opens the door to the restroom and enters,
unbuttoning his pants on his way to the toilet.
                                                            
                       TOILET
GIMME ALL YOUR PEE PEE!
                                                            
Beeker, all in one swift motion, jumps in fright, fastens
his pants and flees the restroom in fear.
                                                            
 
INT. VIDEO GAME STORE - DAY
                                                            
Beeker stands behind the register.

Foley sits on the back counter, a look of anger and
frustration about him.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
You think I'm racist?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I don't know. You've never
expressed ratial hate before, not
in front of me anyway. Why?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
I rung a guy up while you were on
your break. And I know this is
highly unlikely, but I would have
            (MORE)

42.

                       BEEKER (cont'd)
bet my pinky it was Barak Obama.
When I asked him not to raise
taxes he sorta laughed
uncomfortably, then realized I was
serious. He called me a racist and
insinuated I think all black
people look the same.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
That is extrememly ignorant and
possibly slightly racist.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
I am not a racist, Foley! Don't
take that negro's side!
                                                            
Foley is left speechless by Beeker's blatant racism.
                                                            
                       BEEKER (cont'd)
That was a joke...a racist, racist
joke. What's with you anyway? You
got emo face on.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I'm just depressed, and angry at
someone, and a little irritated at
you for not coming through with
the party e-vites.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Yeah, that's so weird that no one
else showed up. The same thing
happened at my birthday party that
no one came to. But you know what,
that was sorta my fault. I
accidentally sent the invitations
to myself. I opened up my email
last week, because I only check it
every few months or so, and I had
like ninety e-vites from myself to
my own party. That's probably not
what happened with your party
though...what are the chances of
me screwing that up twice, the
exact same way?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You're an idiot.
                                                            
A nicely dressed CUSTOMER wearing a tie comes through the
door and approaches the register.


43.

Foley hops down from the back counter, attempting to appear
professional.

The customer sets an open retail item, torn plastic casing
and all, down on the front counter next to the register.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Can I help you?
                                                            
                       CUSTOMER
I bought this from you
earlier...and now I don't need
it...so I need to return it.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
But it's open.
                                                            
                       CUSTOMER
Yeah...I thought I needed it...but
it turns out I don't. So I'd like
to return it.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
I'm sorry. I can't just return
your money for something you
opened and now are deciding you
don't want.
                                                            
                       CUSTOMER
Fine, it's defective! Can I return
it now?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Of course.
                                                            
Foley hands Beeker another of the same item, this one brand
new and still sealed.

Beeker sets the item on the counter in front of the
customer.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
There you go. That one should work
fine.
                                                            
                       CUSTOMER
Are you telling me this item I
bought no more than an hour ago
and haven't even so much as
touched cannot be returned to the
store in which I purchased it?
                                                            

44.

                       BEEKER
Look bro, we are a retail store
just like any other. You can't
return an item after it's been
opened unless it is defective
right out of the box in which case
I can only switch it out for
another of the same product. It's
store policy.
                                                            
                       CUSTOMER
I'm not your bro. Do I look black
to you?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (under breath)
Now that's racist.
                                                            
                       CUSTOMER
You want to stand behind your
little counter and pretend like
what you're doing is of any
importance, then do it to the
little shits that come running in
and out of here on a daily basis.
You have no idea what it means to
have a real job, you worthless
piece of shit.
                                                            
The customer turns to leave.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
I know what a real job is. Your
wife showed me last night.
                                                            
The customer turns back around, more furious than before.
                                                            
                       CUSTOMER
Excuse me?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
And you think just because you
wear a tie it means your job is
more important than mine? I could
wear a fucking tie any goddamn day
of the week if I wanted to, you're
still the one who was stupid
enough to buy, and then open,
something you didn't even need and
expect to get your money back for
it.
                                                            

45.

                       CUSTOMER
When is your manager going to be
in? I want to talk to him.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
I am the manager. Take your fat,
sweating, racist, non-black ass
and get it the hell away from my
store! Bro!
                                                            
In utter rage, the customer winds up and tosses the
"defective" product right at the face of Beeker like he was
pitching for whoever won the World Series this year (or
next, depending on when this movie actually gets made).

But before the package could make contact with Beeker, it is
snatched from the air by Foley like he was catching flies
with chopsticks!

Beeker watches in amazement as Foley walks around the
counter towards the customer who has now begun fleeing
towards the exit.

The customer disappears at out the door. Foley shuts the
door, locking the deadbolt.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Holy Foley, that was amazing!
                                                            
Foley's adrenaline wears off rather quickly as he drops the
product, grabbing his hand and screaming in pain as he
bleeds profusely all over the floor from the large gash the
hard plastic covering the item made across his palm.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
      (afraid)
Oh my God oh my God oh my God oh
my God oh my God oh my God oh my
God oh my God......
                                                            
Beeker's "Oh my God"s and Foley's cries of shock and pain
continue as these two "model" employees run helplessly about
the store.
                                                            
 
INT. TOTEM'S TRUCK - DAY
                                                            
Totem drives his truck, rocking out to fake Christian band I
made up, JC.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
"..and the Looooord saaaaaiiiiiid:
FUCK! YOU! ACOLYTES!"
                                                            

46.

The music is cut off, and a familiar voice comes through the
speakers.
                                                            
                       TOILET
Totem?
                                                            
                       TOTEM
...Radio?
                                                            
                       TOILET
You're Shonna's boyfriend, right?
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Yes...who is this?
                                                            
The music kicks back in. Totem goes right back to rocking
out, as if nothing happened...because he's an idiot.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
"...EAT! SHIT! LUCIFER! Yeah!"
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S RESTROOM
                                                            
The restroom is empty of any living thing...unless you count
the toilet.
                                                            
                       TOILET
So close. One more day. One more
day....
                                                            
The toilet proceeds to laugh sinisterly.
                                                            
In the bath, behind the shower curtain, Mangelo, still
wearing his hat and glasses, looks cautiously from side to
side at the sound of the laughter.
                                                            
 
INT. FOLEY'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Foley comes home from a long (and painful) day of work. His
"catching" hand is bandaged poorly.

Upon opening the door, he sees Mangelo, sitting on the
couch, all the lights on.

Mangelo looks a little jumpy.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Hey...the lights are on.
                                                            

47.

                       MANGELO
Yeah, I didn't feel like reading
today...you think I can talk to
you about something?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Sure.
      (sits on couch)
What's up?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
It's about the toilet.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (worried)
Uhh...okay. What about the toilet?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Were you aware that the
toilet...can talk?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
...Yes, I am well aware of that.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
      (relieved)
Oh, thank God! I thought it was
just me. I almost gave up
drinking.
                                                            
Mangelo removes his hat, and pulls from it a tiny bottle of
whiskey and goes to town.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
What happened to your hand?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You should have seen it! Some
asshole got pissed at Beeker and
threw something at his face, and I
snatched it out of the air like
the fucking Matrix! We watched it
like forty times on the security
tape. Cut my hand though.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
That's badass. You should tell the
toilet about that when he gets
back.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Gets back? What's that mean?
                                                            

48.

                       MANGELO
Said it was leaving for a while,
but you'd see it again real soon,
all sinister like. Nice kid.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
He didn't...evolve, did he?
There's not some creepy toilet
person walking around town I
should maybe call the cops about
or anything?
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Toilet's still in there. It just
isn't speaking right now. Hasn't
said a peep since my two o'clock
bath.
                                                            
Foley stands and goes sceptically into the restroom.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S RESTROOM
                                                            
Foley shuts and locks the door behind him and stands over
the toilet.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Toilet? Hello?
                                                            
There is absolutely no response from the toilet.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
If this is about our fight, I'm
sorry...even though it was
completely your fault and you were
acting like a dickface.
                                                            
Still nothing.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
Okay, look, since Shonna broke up
with me, you have been the most
important person in my life. Sure
I have other friends and a brother
who drinks himself too stupid to
think even when he's sober...
                                                            
                       MANGELO (VO)
Hey!
                                                            

49.

                       FOLEY (cont'd)
But you are the only friend I've
ever had who has tried to help me
improve my life, even if it is
only because you were sent by God
or aliens to do so. I guess what
I'm trying to say is: if you don't
say something, I'm going to shit
in your mouth.
                                                            
Silence...
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
Okey-doke.
                                                            
Foley unzips and pulls down his pants.
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S HALLWAY - LATER
                                                            
Foley exits the restroom.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I guess he really is gone...either
that or I just choked him to
death. That thing was a monster.
                                                            
 
INT. FOLEY'S BEDROOM - DAY
                                                            
Foley tosses and turns in his sleep.
                                                            
                       VOICE (OS)
Foley, you awake? Well, get awake!
                                                            
Foley's eyes open. He sits up in bed, looking around the
room.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Toilet? That you?
                                                            
                       VOICE
Goddamn skippy.
                                                            
Foley jumps away from his pillow. He stares at it in
surprise a moment before picking it up and holding it in
front of his face.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
...Toilet?
                                                            

50.

                       VOICE
Name's Pillow now, bitch.
      (Voice moves)
Or is it Blinds?
                                                            
Foley drops the pillow, his eyes following the voice to the
blinds covering his window.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
How are you--?
                                                            
                       VOICE
      (From all around)
How am I what? Booming all around
you like the voice of God or James
Earl Jones?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
How are you doing this? How did
you move?
                                                            
                       VOICE
I was never here to keep you from
dying. I just used your pathetic
broken heart to get your mind weak
enough to the point where you
would want to kill yourself. The
brain is weakest right before
death.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
That's not true...is it?
                                                            
                       VOICE
Could be. Sounds true.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Anyway, what?
                                                            
                       VOICE
I tried to make you think that you
couldn't live without Shonna,
literally, so that when she
rejected you again, you would try
and kill yourself and I could take
over your weak brain!
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Why? What for?
                                                            
                       TOILET
To be human, dumb shit.
                                                            

51.

                       FOLEY
So, what, you are a ghost?
                                                            
                       VOICE
Hey, that's personal and I don't
really have time to get into that
with you right now. I just thought
you should know I've decided
against possessing you...for lack
of a better term. You got too much
shit rattling around in your head
and I don't need all that. So I
went after the next weak mind I
could find.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I thought we were friends?
                                                            
                       VOICE
See? Too much thinking. And we
weren't. Answer your door.
                                                            
Foley's doorbell RINGS.
                                                            
INT. FOLEY'S LIVING ROOM
                                                            
Foley answers the front door to find Totem standing on the
other side of it.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Totem?
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Hey...my radio said you had
something to talk to me about?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Your radio? It's you...he wants
your body.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
As flattering as that is, could
you tell me why my radio is
talking to me?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You have to listen to me. This is
going to sound crazy, because it
goddamn is, but a few weeks ago,
my toilet came to life, and now it
is able to move between objects
and possibly humans, and it is all
being done with evil intent, and I
think you are the human it wants
            (MORE)

52.

                       FOLEY (cont'd)
to...move in to.
                                                            
Totem continues to stare at Foley without so much as a
blink.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
Totem?
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
THERE IS NO DANA, ONLY ZUUL!!
                                                            
Foley is startled at the sound of both Totem's and the
Toilet's voice coming out of one body in unison.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Jesus!
                                                            
Totem punches Foley right in the face, knocking him onto his
back. Totem stands over Foley and unzips his pants.
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
NOW WE ARE THE ONES WHO WILL DO
THE PEEING. You like that Venom
reference? Sweet, huh?
                                                            
Totem is suddenly hit on the back of the head by something.

Totem falls to the floor and looks up to see Mangelo
standing in the doorway, his book in hand.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Nobody urinates on my family!
Nobody!
                                                            
Totem jumps up and shoves Mangelo against the wall.
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
I don't have time for this! I have
a woman to kidnap.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Go ahead, just stay away from me.
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
      (to Foley)
Shonna, you imbecile (dummy). I'm
going to kidnap your girlfriend
and keep her for myself.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
What? No, don't do that.
                                                            

53.

                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
Or what?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Or I'll...stop you.
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
I almost believe that. But you
know what, I don't think you want
to stop me. I think you will be
relieved (happy) if she stays with
me because you are too afraid to
commit anyway. You don't know how,
and even this idiot (Hey!) is
capable of that. You don't deserve
her. And you know I'm right.
                                                            
Totem walks out the door.
                                                            
Mangelo gets to his feet and helps Foley up as well.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
What was that all about?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
He's right. I don't know how to
commit to anything, especially a
relationship. But I want to,
Mikey. I want to learn how...I
want to be what Shonna wants and
needs. I'll see you later.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Where you going?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Far away, Mangie. So far away, I
don't know when I'll be back. But
I'm coming back an adult, ready
for love.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Far away?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
So far away.
                                                            
EXT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT
                                                            
Foley runs out of his front door, around a walkway, and up
the stairs to his neighbor's and knocks on the door.

The door opens. On the other side stands JONESY.
                                                            

54.

                       JONESY
Hey, Folds. What's up?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Jonesy...I need your help.
                                                            
 
INT. JONESY'S PLACE - DAY
                                                            
Jonesy's living room is decorated with photos of he and his
wife's faces poorly photoshopped on to already existing
pictures, including long walks on the beach, playing with
the kids and even wedding photos.
                                                            
Foley walks the walls, observing these photos.

Jonesy meets him with a cold beverage.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Thanks. These pictures...that's
funny.
                                                            
                       JONESY
Not really. Heather has a phobia
of having her picture taken. It's
a very serious problem actually.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Oh...sorry. Photophobia?
                                                            
                       JONESY
No, that has to do with lights. I
honestly don't know the technical
term for it.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
We can just call it picture
phobia.
                                                            
                       JONESY
Yeah, let's go with that.
                                                            
The two men sit, probably in opposite chairs, or one in a
chair and one on the couch. Or one on a turtle and the other
in the mouth of a whale. I don't give a shit...they're just
not sitting side by side on the same piece of furniture.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You guys good? You and Heather, I
mean?
                                                            

55.

                       JONESY
Things are great with us. We're
each other's best friends and we
spend almost every waking moment
togther, and neither of us have
gotten tired of the other yet.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Wow, that's amazing. You have it
all figured out. I don't know how
you do it. I'm so caught up with
myself, I never thought of what
was best for Shonna. No wonder she
dumped me.
                                                            
                       JONESY
You guys broke up? That's tough
bro, I'm sorry to hear that.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You didn't know? Don't you
remember her bringing another guy
to my party last weekend?
                                                            
                       JONESY
I don't believe I was invited to
that.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Beeker sent the invitations,
so...he probably just missed you.
                                                            
                       JONESY
That weird guy from the Muppets?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
No, a friend of mine.
                                                            
                       JONESY
You could have just walked over.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Anyways, I need advice from you. I
need to get Shonna back or I am
going to lose her forever.
                                                            
                       JONESY
All I can say is, you gotta make
every day about her. Let her know
how important she is to you and
never let go of that feeling of
love you have for her...don't let
it get clouded with all the other
shit you have going on in your
            (MORE)

56.

                       JONESY (cont'd)
life, because none of it is as
important as you two being
together.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I'll try. I'll try damn hard. I do
want those things, I do want her
to know that all the time in the
world I have will be devoted to
being with her. Like you and
Heather. Every waking moment.
Where is Heather, by the way?
                                                            
                       JONESY
Hell if I know.
                                                            
 
INT. FOLEY'S LIVING ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Mangelo sits on the couch, watching television on mute with
the closed captioning turned on.

Foley kicks the door open.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Mange, come with me.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Where we going?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
You're gonna help me save Shonna
from that walking toilet
sonuvabitch.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
Ehh...
                                                            
                       FOLEY
"Ehh"? What "ehh"? I'm talking
about a damsel in distress
situation here.
                                                            
                       MANGELO
But I saved YOU already today...it
just seems like a lot for one day.
                                                            
                       ASTONISHED LANDLORD (OS)
I'll go.
                                                            

57.

Foley is has the shit scared out of him (not
literally...well maybe a little) as he becomes suddenly
aware of his landlord standing behind his door.
                                                            
 
EXT. FOLEY'S APARTMENT - DAY
                                                            
Foley and his landlord walk side by side, moving briskly
past Jonesy's place just as Jonesy steps out of his
apartment.
                                                            
                       JONESY
Hey, Foldgers, where you going?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Uhh...nowhere. Just gotta discuss
some...rent.
                                                            
                       JONESY
Oh...okay, but don't forget, if
you need any more help winning
Shonna back, I'm here for you.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Alright, buddy, thanks.
                                                            
                       ASTONISHED LANDLORD
      (to Foley)
Why didn't you ask him to come
with us?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
He's not really a lot of fun
anymore since he got married.
Plus, I haven't seen his wife
since he came back from his
honeymoon alone...so, that's a
little weird.
                                                            
Foley takes his cell phone out of his pocket.
                                                            
EXT. TALON'S BACKYARD
                                                            
Talon is hitting golf balls with his golf club when his
phone rings. He takes it out of his robe and answers it.
                                                            
                       TALON
      (into phone)
R.P.F, what's up?
                                                            
INT. VIDEO GAME STORE
                                                            

58.

The store phone rings.

Beeker jumps behind the counter wearing a plastic guitar
controller and answers it.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
      (into phone)
Beeker speaking.
      (Beat)
Count on it.
                                                            
Beeker slams the phone down.
                                                            
                       BEEKER (cont'd)
      (announcing)
Closing time, bitches! You don't
have to go home, but you can't
stay here.
                                                            
A frightened LITTLE BOY (who is the only other person in the
store) standing in front of the counter with a video game in
hand looks up at Beeker.
                                                            
                       LITTLE BOY
But I'm supposed to stay here
until my mom comes to get me.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
      (to little boy)
Well, you should have thought
about that before you bet your bus
money against my mad guitar
skills.
                                                            
 
EXT. GATE - DAY
                                                            
From the left, Talon approaches weilding his golf club.

From the right, Beeker approaches weilding his guitar
controller.

They meet in the middle, standing on either side of Foley
and the landlord.

All four men stand staring at the closed gate.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Alright gentlemen, this is it.
                                                            
                       ASTONISHED LANDLORD
Who wants to help me over?
      (creepily to
       Beeker)
            (MORE)

59.

                       ASTONISHED LANDLORD (cont'd)
You?
                                                            
Beeker shakes his head in disgust.
                                                            
                       TALON
I got this one.
                                                            
Talon approaches an electronic key pad and dials in a
number.

The gate opens.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
How'd you know the code?
                                                            
                       TALON
I used to get it aaaahhhhhn with
this fine bitch over in that
yellow house.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
      (to Talon)
That's so weird...I used to live
in that yellow house.
                                                            
                       TALON
Maybe it was your roommate?
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Doubt it. My only roommate was my
mom.
                                                            
Foley gets awkward.

The landlord grins big.

Talon starts to get flustered.
                                                            
                       TALON
No...no, that's not true. Besides,
this lady was black. So, unless
you're adopted...
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Talon)
He's adopted...
                                                            
                       BEEKER
I am adopted.
                                                            
Talon looks very apologetic.
                                                            

60.

Beeker looks pissed...and then breaks out in laughter.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Only to me would something like
that happen!
                                                            
Talon chuckles uncomfortably.
                                                            
By now, the gate has closed again.

Beeker runs up to the keypad and dials the code.
                                                            
 
INT. SHONNA'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
The sun is starting to set.

Through the window of Shonna's house, Shonna can be seen
cooking in the kitchen.

Behind her, Totem (Toilet) stands staring at her creepily.

Foley and the gang stand at the window, looking in.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
They're here.
                                                            
                       TALON
Of course they are. That's why we
followed you here. Are you saying
you didn't know if they'd be here
or not?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I was guessing, but really where
else would they be?
                                                            
                       TALON
Anywhere...I walked here, and I'm
assuming the rest of you did as
well? Were you going to make us
look all over town on foot if they
weren't here?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I hadn't thought about that.
Honestly, I probably would have
given up. As much as I feel like I
would do anything to be with her
again, the truth is if it got too
hard I probably would have called
it a night, tried again in the
morning. If things work out, don't
            (MORE)

61.

                       FOLEY (cont'd)
tell her I said that.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Why did we all walk here? That was
bad planning by all of us.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
My car's broken down.
                                                            
                       TALON
I let this girl I picked up last
week borrow mine...haven't seen
her since. I knew I should have
offered to take her to church that
day, that lying bitch.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
My mom drives me everywhere. I
wasn't about to tell her I needed
a ride to go kill a talking toilet
that possessed my friend's
ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend. She
would have been all "I wanna
go"...
                                                            
                       ASTONISHED LANDLORD
My wife ate mine!
                                                            
The other three look confused and wierded out at the
landlord.
                                                            
                       ASTONISHED LANDLORD
Oh, were we still talking about
cars? Never mind, I was just
following the Mexican guy. My wife
does eat a lot though.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
So, what's the plan?
                                                            
 
INT. SHONNA'S KITCHEN - NIGHT
                                                            
Shonna chops something (lettuce, onions...whatever is
cheaper for budgetery reasons).

Behind her, Totem stares at her butt.
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
You ever sit on someone's face
before?
                                                            

62.

                       SHONNA
What? No, why would you ask me
that? And seriously, take a
lozenge.
                                                            
The doorbell rings.

Shonna puts down the knife and unties her apron (because
that's what they do in movies) and leaves the kitchen.
                                                            
EXT. SHONNA'S FRONT DOOR
                                                            
The front door opens. Finding no one at the door, Shonna
pokes her head out to get a better look.

The group of four duck lower into the bushes on the side of
the house as they are nearly spotted.

Shonna goes back inside and closes the door.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
What happened there?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I chickened out.
                                                            
                       TALON
Now what?
                                                            
                       ASTONISHED LANDLORD
She didn't lock the door.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
...Exactly...that was exactly the
plan all along.
                                                            
INT. SHONNA'S HOUSE
                                                            
Foley quietly opens the door and steps inside. Behind him,
the other three follow.
                                                            
                       SHONNA (OS)
I'm gonna go change, T. I'll be
right back.
                                                            
Shonna walks past the front entrance.

Foley, Talon and Beeker all hug the wall as to not be seen.

The landlord stands right out in the open in front of the
open front door.
                                                            

63.

                       ASTONISHED LANDLORD
      (to Shonna)
Hey, how's it going?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Astonished
       Landlord)
Oh, come on!
                                                            
                       BEEKER
      (to A.L.)
Seriously...who trusts you to run
an apartment complex?
                                                            
Shonna jumps back at the sound of his voice, turning to find
the four men standing in her home. She notices Foley at the
head of the group.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
      (to Foley)
What the hell are you guys doing
here?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I know this is going to sound
crazy, but you gotta believe me,
Shonna. I'm here to save your
life.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
Save my life? From what?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Totem.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
He's planning on kidnapping you.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
He isn't who you think he is.
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE (OS)
You call me, babe?
                                                            
Totem appears behind Shonna, eating a celery stick.

Talon cries out in a warrior's fashion and steps in front of
Foley, swinging his golf club as hard as humanly possible.

The club makes a horrible "THUD" of a noise as it cracks
against Totem's skull.


64.

Totem falls hard to the floor, completely unconscious and
bleeding profusely.
                                                            
Shonna screams.
                                                            
                       TALON
Jesus!!
                                                            
Talon drops the golf club in fear of what he's just done.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Talon)
What the shit, man? Did you just
kill him?
                                                            
                       TALON
You said he was possessed! I
thought he'd have superhuman
strength or something!
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Why would you think that?
                                                            
                       TALON
I don't know!
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Oh my God, we're going to prison.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
Oh God oh God oh God oh God oh God
oh God--
                                                            
The landlord grabs Beeker's plastic guitar from him and
clubs Shonna in the head with it.

She walls against the wall unconscious as well.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Ahhhh! Why?
                                                            
The landlord throws the guitar down next to the golf club,
turns and leaves the house quickly.
                                                            
INT. SHONNA'S KITCHEN - LATER
                                                            
Totem is tied up to a chair. He wakes up groggy to find
Foley, Beeker and Talon tying Shonna to a chair across the
room.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
See? Now she'll stop falling out
of it.
                                                            

65.

Foley notices Totem is conscious.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
He's awake!
                                                            
                       TALON
Thank God.
                                                            
The three approach Totem.
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
What the hell, Foley? Were you
trying to kill me?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Not necassarily. Just trying to
get you out of Totem's body. Like
an excorcism, I guess.
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
With a golf club?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
That wasn't exactly part of the
plan.
                                                            
                       TALON
My fault.
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
It's going to take more than
horrible, horrible human pain to
get me to leave. I'm fused. I
can't be exorcised by any means,
not like you've seen in movies.
Even if you managed to kill Totem,
that doesn't mean I'd die with
him. I might still be stuck in his
rotting corpse, walking around
like Night of the Living Dead
toilet...guy. I couldn't leave
this body if I wanted to.
Something so morose, so utterly
undesireable to me, so completely
horrifyingly disgusting would have
to take place to get me ripped out
of here. Good luck thinking of
something I hate that much.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
We could take turns anally raping
you.
                                                            

66.

                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
What? Don't do that.
                                                            
                       TALON
Dude, I'm not doing that. Let me
know when Shonna's possessed. I'd
be down for that.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Or...!
                                                            
Totem grunts in pain as he is shoved over onto the floor,
still tied to the chair.

Foley, Beeker and Talon stand around him.
                                                            
                       TOTEM WITH TOILET VOICE
What is happening here?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Gentlemen, proton packs ready.
                                                            
All three unzip their pants simultaneously.
                                                            
                       FOLEY (cont'd)
And go.
                                                            
Two streams of urine flow down onto Totem, drenching him
everywhere as he cringes in disgust.

Talon struggles to urinate but seems to be having trouble.
                                                            
                       TALON
Give me a minute, I went before we
left.
                                                            
Shonna awakens to find the men peeing on Totem.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
What the fuck is happening to my
life?
                                                            
EXT. SHONNA'S HOUSE
                                                            
Beeker leaves the house first.

Foley and Shonna follow after him.

Behind them, a drenched Totem and Talon exit the house last.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
      (to Talon)
This is like that last scene in
Ghostbusters 2 where that creepy
            (MORE)

67.

                       TOTEM (cont'd)
French guy who's on 24 now is all
gunked up and he wants to hug
everybody. Remember that?
                                                            
                       TALON
I'm not hugging you, buddy.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
      (to Shonna)
Sorry about your head. I don't
know why I brought that guy. He's
just my landlord.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
As long as you mop up you and your
friends's urine up off of my
kitchen floor, I'm just going to
forget about this whole thing.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Deal. I'll use my own mop.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
That's probably best. So...Totem
was possessed by possibly a ghost,
demon, renegade angel or alien
spirit who had previously occupied
your toilet, and peeing on him
forced it out? That's the gist,
right?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
That's sounds about correct. You
believe us?
                                                            
                       SHONNA
It's easier that way, so yes.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
So...
                                                            
                       SHONNA
What?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
I mean, I did save you from being
kidnapped and all...
                                                            
                       SHONNA
Right, that. I think I may need
some space.
                                                            

68.

                       FOLEY
Oh.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
It's just, I just watched my ex
boyfriend urinate on my new
boyfriend who used to be a toilet
that hated to be peed and pooed
in...it's just a lot to ingest.
That's not to say I won't want to
once I wrap my head around this
whole obsurd mess.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
It is obsurd, isn't it?
                                                            
                       SHONNA
Totally, totally obsurd. We can
hang out though. Tomorrow?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
That'd be nice.
                                                            
                       SHONNA
Just don't invite any of your
friends to come along.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Never even crossed my mind.
                                                            
                       TALON
      (to Totem)
Sorry I wasn't able to help, you
know, saving your life.
                                                            
                       TOTEM
It's totally cool. I get stage
fright any time someone stands
next to me in a urinal, so I get
it, man. The important thing is,
you tried. That means a lot to me
that you tried to pee on me.
                                                            
                       TALON
I have to go pretty badly
now...you want me to give it
another shot?
                                                            
                       TOTEM
Nah, I think I'm gonna go try and
find a car wash to run through.
Thanks, though.
                                                            

69.

                       TALON
Alright, man. Catch you later.
                                                            
Talon slaps Totem on the shoulder, and pulls his sopping wet
hand back in disgust.
                                                            
EXT. STREET
                                                            
Foley, Beeker and Talon walk side by side down the empty
street.
                                                            
                       TALON
So that was eventful. We were
kinda like the Power Rangers back
there.
                                                            
                       FOLEY
Yeah, thank you guys for coming
along.
                                                            
                       BEEKER
Any time Foldgers. I would never
skip out on a chance to piss on a
guy. What do you think happened
to, you know, it?
                                                            
                       FOLEY
We may never know. As long as it's
outta my house and outta my life,
I really don't give two squirts of
piss.
                                                            
                       TALON
Ha ha, good one.
                                                            
 
INT. FOLEY'S RESTROOM - DAY
                                                            
LITTER BOX'S P.O.V.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Where is this? I recognize this
room.
                                                            
Mangelo's kitten runs into the litter box and scratches
around, preparing to do its business.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Goddamn it, are you kidding me? I
guess this is a little more
tolerable than human feces...I can
live with this.
                                                            

70.

                       MANGELO (O.S.)
Outta the way, cat! I gotta go!!
                                                            
Mangelo rushes into the restroom in a frenzy, pushing the
kitten aside.

The kitten runs out of the restroom as Mangelo lowers his
pants and sits ass-first in the litter box.
                                                            
                       VOICE
NOOOOOOOOO!!! FUCKIN' FUCK! DICK!!
Ugghhh, I'm gonna be sick.
                                                            


THE END

The characters need some work. You can only take the bathroom humor just so far. The humor seems a little strained, like it's being forced.

From Drew Martorelli Date 12/9/2008 ***1/2
It was a good read and I can definitely imagine it as a movie. The characters were well-developed and distinct. The only real problem is how easily Foley believes the toilet's really conscious. Maybe the toilet makes a grim prediction (that comes true) to prove he's real. Also, Beeker explaining his mom is white kills the joke--it would be funnier leaving Beeker with a black mom who slept with Talon, of course, that would conflict with the racism discussion in the store, so you might have to have Talon say she's Bengali or something.
