DIRK, a young man is sitting on a children’s merry-go-round. He’s holding a pair of cutting scissors. GREG, a large bunny, runs up and pushes the merry-go-round very fast. Dirk screams, and runs dizzily off up a hill. Greg laughs menacingly, kicks FRODO off the slide, jumps on the back of a truck, hits the driver with nunchucks and they peel out.
Camera circles around Dirk as he runs.
He falls off camera. SCREAMING. Blood squirts up.
INT: Doctor’s office
CEDRICK, a middle aged doctor stares into space, misty eyed. PHIL, the tough as nails physical trainer sits in the corner, hands on his knees.
I don’t think I can save him
Doc, ya got to! Karate championship’s in two hours!
Cedrick puts a bandaid over the wound. The scissors are still protruding. Phil leans towards Dirk.
(whispering; teary eyed)
You’re the best!
Music starts: “YOU’RE THE BEST”
INT: Green room.
Dirk is working out. First he does sit-ups, then punches the air, jump ropes, then tries to do the splits. CRUNCHING.
Dirk is posing in karate stances in front of a sunset
Music stops. Dirk is facing off against Greg. A close shot of Dirk’s face reveals beads of sweat. Phil is in the corner, cheering him on. Cedrick is next to him, worried.
Remember, kid! You’re the best!
Dirk and Greg dance around striking karate poses and jabbing at each other.
Greg yanks out Dirk’s scissors. Music fades out. Blood squirts from off camera. Close up of Dirk’s face in agony.
Phil yelling but is muted. While the commotion continues in the background, Frodo walks in front of the camera.
Remember, running with scissors doesn’t only affect you.
Cedrick in the corner, crying blood and eating a bag of bugs.
I couldn’t save him.
Middle of gym. Greg is jumping up and down with a large trophy above his head.
