PUSSEY (PILOT) PT. 1

FADE IN:

INT. AA MEETING - NIGHT
                                                            
DR. DELORIS JONES is the facilitator at this AA meeting, She
is one hot black woman. She is seated at the top of the
circle. There are 15 very diverse men and women attending
this group session. TERRENCE PUSSEY known as TP is seated to
her left. He is well dressed in a dark tailored fitted suit
with tie and hankie squared to perfection. He stands to
speak.
                                                            
                       TP
      (irritated)
My name is Terrance Pussey my
friends call me TP. I've been
ordered by a judge to attend these
sessions. I may be an alcoholic,
hell I don't know. I drink
whenever and wherever I feel like
it, any time and any day. For ten
years I was a very successful real
estate agent here in Central
Florida. Shit, I sold Tiger his
home. I earned a half million to a
million every year during that
stretch. I was living a good life;
big house, expensive cars.
Enjoying the arts and the finer
things this life have to offer. I
have two ex wives, one who still
lives in (my) house. Hell I gotta
forty five hundred dollar
mortgage. I pay another six
thousand a month in investment
properties. We all know what
happened to the real estate
market. Then there's twenty five
hundred a month in alimony to my
first wife. I have four spoiled
selfish kids, dogs,cats,turtles
and some other kinds of eat and
shit animals. Now I've been told
to spend several hours a week in
this god damn place. I still have
my real estate licenses, but I've
only sold a couple of houses over
the past two years. However I'm
not quite ready to give up my life
style. As a matter of fact, I'd be
dammed if i'm going to give it up.

                       TP (cont'd)
The way I see it. If I don't
drink, there is no way I can
continue to balance the seven jobs
I have as an outside sales rep for
seven different companies. Three
of which I am the number one sales
rep. I have anger issues cause,
I'm working my ass off just to
make ends meet; and my ends are
long and they haven't met in a
while. So for me time really is
money, and this for me is a waste.
So, I'm going to get into my very
fast and expensive BMW where I
have a bottle of XO cognac and
have me a big drink and drive back
into my reality. Cause this is
some bull shit. And if any of you
people want to judge me, then fuck
you. That's a glimpse of me,
Terrence Pussey.
                                                            
TP exits the meeting. The participants look quite stunned.
DR.JONES excuses herself and pursues TP.
                                                            
 
INT. CAR - NIGHT
                                                            
TP OPENS the bottle of XO cognac and pours himself a drink
in a gold double shot glass. Without hesitation, he swallows
it in one gulp. DR.JONES TAPS on the tinted glass window. TP
slowly LOWERS it.
                                                            
                       DR, JONES
      (in a soft sexy
       voice)
Mr Pussey our session wasn't over.
                                                            
TP gazes into her eyes, there is a pause and she LEANS in
the car and gives him a wet ass kiss. As they kiss he
awkwardly reaches out the car in an attempt to grapple her
ass. She REACHES into her bra and hands him a business card.
                                                            
                       DR, JONES
I love the taste of liquor on your
breath, call me.
                                                            
She TURNS and WALKS away. TP smiles as he checks her out.
Slowly turning the car he LEANS out the window.

                       TP
      (laughing)
I'll call you maybe we can go out
for a drink. Plus I want to know
what else your hiding in that
bra..

      (club music in
       background)
TP where are you man, I thought we

been here for two hours man,

                       TP
I was in a meeting, I have to go
home first to change.
                                                            
                       JEFFERSON
      (interrupting)
No man! don't go home, you'll
never get out of the house, just
get your ass down here.
                                                            
                       TP
I'm close to Macy's, I'm going to
buy me a fit, and I'll be down
there.
                                                            
                       JEFFERSON
      (laughs)
Unless it's a suit, you can't pick
out no clothes man: your ex did
all your street clothes shopping,
and I don't want you showing up
here looking like an old man.
                                                            
                       TP
Whatever! I have an infallible
method when it comes to shopping
now. I'll see you in a few.

TP singles out a young female SALES CLERK in the men's dept.
He BROWSE'S a rack of shirts and patiently waits for her to
try to assist him. The clerk finally makes her way towards
TP.
                                                            
                       SALES CLERK
Hi are you finding everything
alright?
                                                            
                       TP
      (uninterested)
Yes, im just looking, thanks
                                                            
                       SALES CLERK
Well take your time and if you
need me I'll be at my register.
                                                            
She TURNS to leave, after a few steps TP CALLS her back.
                                                            
                       TP
You work on commission right?
                                                            
                       SALES CLERK
Yes I do, plus a little base
salary.
                                                            
                       TP
Well sweetheart you just blew a
sale with me. But.. I'm gonna show
you how to sell just about every
person that approaches a clothing
rack. In reality, im giving you a
gift, a forty percent raise in
commission.
                                                            
                       SALES CLERK
      (surprised)
Are you a Secret Shopper?
                                                            
TP does not acknowledge her and continues his pitch.
                                                            
                       TP
I'm your example, you notice that
I have an interest in shirts. So
you walk over, say hello, and
then, use these exact words,"you
look like you wear a medium". It
doesn't matter if you think I'm
skinny or I look a little large,
as long as the person is not
morbidly obese. Always use medium.

use three sizes smaller than what
you think she is. The next step
is the most important. You go find
the most attractive shirt in the
store, and to you price is not an
object.(pause) Go Now! go find me
a shirt quickly and bring it to
me.
                                                            
She SCRAMBLES to look for a shirt. His cell phone rings,
it's JEFFERSON.
                                                            
                       TP
Hey, can't talk, I'll be there in
about fifteen mins, bye.
                                                            
He pockets the phone. The clerk APPROACHES with the shirt.
                                                            
                       TP
Now you say, you would look
awesome in this shirt, hand it to
him, then walk away. Believe me
he's going purchase the shirt. You
do the same thing regardless of
what it is, pants, shirts, shoes,
whatever. You got it?.
                                                            
                       SALES CLERK
      (smiling)
Yes
                                                            
                       TP
So what do you say?
                                                            
She GIVES him the shirt.
                                                            
                       SALES CLERK
You would look awesome in this.
                                                            
She walks off.

                       SALES CLERK
Behind you to the right.
                                                            
                       TP

this shirt out the door. I'm
meeting a friend for a little
after work activity downtown. The
Maverick Club. Have you heard of
it?
                                                            
                       SALES CLERK
Yeah! I hear it's nice.
                                                            
                       TP
You should come out. I'll be in
the VIP. Oh by the way, I need a
pair of pants to fit up the shirt.

room, if you dont mind. Size

She pairs up some designer jeans and TAPS on the dressing
room door. TP opens the door he is stripped down to boxer
briefs. She glances at him then passes the pants. He GRABS
the pants and her arm and gently pulls her close to him. She
doesn't resist him. He speaks softly to her.
                                                            
                       TP
Since I showed you how to make
money today, I need you to apply
your employee discount to my
purchase, OK?

                       TP
How in the hell didn't you make
it. You told me you needed two
sales to get in and I gave you
three.
                                                            
                       JEFFERSON
Man I don't know, they got over on

                       JEFFERSON
I got you covered man. Come on

money. You are crazy as shit for
working all those jobs.
                                                            
JEFFERSON, BOLTS to get one of the bottles. TP is checking
out the crowd. A large dark skinned black woman wearing a
large blond wig is trying to get TP's attentions. He WALKS
over to the velvet rope to talk to the women. The attendant
is preventing her from entering.
                                                            
                       TP
Hey, sweetheart!
                                                            
                       BLACK BLONDE
Hi can you invite me into the VIP,
it is too crowded on the dance
floor.
                                                            
                       TP
You have to take off that wig
before I can invite you in.
                                                            
                       BLACK BLONDE
      (startled)
Are you serious?
                                                            
                       TP
Black skin and blond hair don't
match, I know what I'm talking
about. I saw it on the discovery
channel.(laugh) But I'm going to
let you in, if you start acting
ghetto, I'm gonna bounce your ass
out. Let her in. And burn the wig
when you get home.
                                                            

10.

                       BLACK BLONDE
Thank you baby.
                                                            
She WALKS near JEFFERSON as he is returning with the bottle.
                                                            
                       JEFFERSON
      (Looking Shocked)
Who in the hell let you in here?
                                                            
TP notices the sales clerk from Macy is HEADED toward the
VIP velvet rope.
                                                            
                       TP
      (to attendant)
Let her in. (To Sales
Clerk) Glad you made it out. Come
keep me company for a while, my
boy is getting a little out of
control.
                                                            
They sit on a velvet couch in VIP while sipping a drink.
Jefferson is off in the distance talking to some chick.
                                                            
                       SALES CLERK
I noticed your last name on your
credit card was pretty unique.
                                                            
                       TP
Yeah, I know what your thinking,
it's pronounced Pooh Say. But you
can say it anyway you wish.
                                                            
TP's cell phone vibrates, he takes a look and it's ANGEL
again. He ANSWERS the call but is having a hard time hearing
due to the music.
                                                            
                       TP
      (to Angel)
Angel, I really can't talk right
now, I'll be there soon, Bye!
                                                            
                       ANGEL
      (barely audible)
I'm going to stay up and wait for
you.
                                                            
                       TP
I know. Bye!
                                                            

11.

                       TP
      (to the sales
       clerk)
Hey, I gotta get out of here, but
thanks for hangin out.
                                                            
                       SALES CLERK
So soon, I just got here. Let's
have one quick dance, come on!
                                                            
TP agrees, they STAND and dance right where they were
sitting. The sales clerk is giving TP tons of ass grind. The
song ends quickly and TP is not interested in dancing the
next song. They SIT, JEFFERSON who is even more tipsy FLOPS
between them.
                                                            
                       JEFFERSON
      (drunk)
Teee, who's this hottie, How you

                       TP

                       SALES CLERK
      (curious)
Evicting?
                                                            
                       TP
I own some rental properties and I
have a guy who hasn't paid rent in
three months, and the city won't
evict him. So I'm going to see if
I can per sway him to leave.
Jefferson, let's go.
                                                            
TP gets up to leave, he notice that JEFFERSON is really
toasted. He GRABS his hand and pulls him to his feet.
                                                            
                       TP
      (angry)
Are you serious. You are that
fucking drunk?
                                                            

12.

                       JEFFERSON
      (laughing)
Na na I'm good
                                                            
                       SALES CLERK
Well it was nice meeting you

                       TP

They exit.
                                                            
 
INT. CAR - NIGHT
                                                            
TP slowly APPROACHES the street of his rental property. It's
a three bedroom ranch style house. He LOOKS over at
JEFFERSON who is out cold.
                                                            
                       TP
Wake your ass up man, we're here.
                                                            
TP is violently SHAKING JEFFERSON, in an attempt to wake him
up. He FADING in and out
                                                            
                       JEFFERSON
      (drunk)
I'm good, I'm good, whats da whats

                       TP
Simple, if he don't have my three
months of back rents. I plan to
kick his fat ass out of my
property
                                                            
JEFFERSON passes out again. TP realizes that JEFFERSON is
too drunk and contemplates handling this situation alone. He
TAKES a shot of the XO. And exits the car leaving JEFFERSON
snoring. He takes the XO bottle with him.
                                                            
 
EXT. STREET - NIGHT
                                                            
TP cautiously approaches the house. He notices that there
are lights on but can't see any movement or activity inside.
He takes a deep breath and heaves a strong front KICK to the
door. The sound is thunderous but the door didn't pop open.

13.

He quickly recoups and unleashes a second powerful KICK. The
door FLY'S open and TP takes a step back and calmly waits.

Within seconds MERCER appears at the door, baseball bat in
hand, He's a big fat sloppy looking man, just under three
hundred pounds. He is bare chested with a large pair of
basketball short and no shoes. He EXITS the house in a full
panic and see's TP.
                                                            
                       MERCER
      (angry)
Tee, what the fucks going on? You
know your not supposed to be
around here. You fuckin broke my
door.
                                                            
                       TP
My name is Mr.Pussey, I'm your
landlord. You owe me three months
rent. You fat fuck, and I want my
money.
                                                            
                       MERCER
Take that shit up with the courts
or I'm gonna take this bat to your
ass.
                                                            
                       TP
You ain't gonna do shit but give
me my money or get the fuck out of
my house.
                                                            
Voice HEARD from inside the house. It's Mercer's wife.
                                                            
                       MAE
John, babe, is everything alright?
                                                            
He looks back at the house.
                                                            
                       MERCER
Everything's fine baby, you can go
back to the bedroom.
                                                            
                       TP
      (agitated)
You think everything is fine. You
phathetic motherfucker. Where's my
money?
                                                            
Mercer gets in TEE's face.
                                                            

14.

                       MERCER
      (on fire)

old in nineteen sixty. She lived
in the segregated south all of her
life. There was this water
fountain outside of the main
courthouse in the small town where
she lived. That fountain still had
a sign on it that read "for whites
only". It was still a law. In a
defiant moment, this old brittle
woman used all her power to walk
up and sip water from that
fountain. Fuck the law, is what
she probably was thinking. A very
powerful scene.
                                                            
                       MIKE
      (annoyed)
Well I'm glad you enjoyed it.
                                                            
MIKE makes a move to get up and TP NUDGES his chair so he
can sit back down.
                                                            

27.

                       TP
Mike the one thing I know for
certain. It is impossible to close
twelve or sometimes in your case
fifteen deals a week, without some
inside help. I just need to get a
sip from that fountain, or is it
for whites only.
                                                            
                       MIKE
Go find your own water source,
cause I'm not giving you black ass
one thing.
                                                            
TP quickly SLAMS his hand down hard and loud on the
conference table.
                                                            
                       TP
      (eerie)
I understand Mike. gotta go!
                                                            
TP GRABS his laptop to exit. Turns back to Mike who is
slowly gathering his things.
                                                            
                       TP
By the way Mike, what the hell
happened to your car. I noticed
some body keyed your entire
passenger side.
                                                            
                       MIKE
What? What the hell you taking
about.
                                                            
Mike hauls ass to his car.
                                                            
 
INT. RADIO STATION HALLWAY - DAY
                                                            
As TP WALKS pass the the broadcast room window, he notices a
big white bandage WRAPPED around PREMIER'S forehead. He
stops gives them the fuck you finger.
                                                            
 
EXT. RADIO STATION PARKING LOT - DAY
                                                            
MIKE is looking at his cars, he is completely flipping out.
A small crowd of employees has GATHERED around him. TP
slowly approaches Mike's car. He takes a look and shakes his
head and pulls a Mercedes Benz business card from his shirt
pocket.
                                                            

28.

                       TP
      (to Mike)
Here, take this card, I have a
friend who works at Orlando
Mercedes. He can make your car
look new again. I'll give him a
call, he owes me a favor and this
won't cost you a penny, as long as
you consider this a gift from Miss
Jane Pittman. You understand me..
                                                            
MIKE is pondering over TP's offer.
                                                            
                       TP
      (pissed)
It's just a sip Mike, now take the
card.
                                                            
MIKE takes the card.
                                                            
                       TP
Good luck with your car, when it's
done, text me the water source.
                                                            
TP DRIVES off.
                                                            
 
INT. CAR - DAY
                                                            
TP is checking his messages on the car's handfree system.
The last call is from Jefferson. TP listens.
                                                            
                       JEFFERSON
      (message)

Premier completely blow your cover
