Too Lazy, Brotherslice

At this point, it's rare I do blogs because I am too lazy and I have a lot of other things I should be doing. The easiest thing for me to do is paste random sections of my screenplay, since I have to write that anyway.

The funny thing about this screenplay is that each section has essentially been written within the span of a few hours on very little sleep in the morning just before class. Shoddy?! YOU BET!!!

While you're here, I'll tell you to buy the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' new album, Show Your Bones because it's really very lovely. Or maybe I don't know anything, but chances are I know a ton and you all just haven't been listening properly.

Right, screenplay (Again, note that the formatting is not going to look great here. Action lines are in italics):

INT. FIRST CAR - MOMENTS LATER

Kat gets in the driver’s seat. Doug opens the passenger door.

DOUG
Wow! Look at all this meat you got!

He starts throwing the meat into the backseat.

DOUG (CONT'D)
Don’t worry, I won’t eat too much of it. I’ve totally been living on Fritos.

Kat hot-wires the car to start it up. Doug sits down

DOUG (CONT'D)
Awesome, how’d you do that?

KAT
It’s called hot-wiring.

DOUG
Yeah, like in that movie! “No keys, no problem!” You know, that one guy?

KAT
Sorry.

DOUG
Oh. They play it all the time. It’s really good.

Kat puts the car in drive.

DOUG (CONT'D)
Can you show me how to do it some time?

KAT
Sure, we’ll take turns driving.

DOUG
Oh, I can’t drive.

KAT
You what?

DOUG
I never learned. I mean, I’ve tried. I hit a lot of things.

Kat shakes her head.

KAT
Okay.

EXT. MORE COUNTRY ROAD - LATER

It’s pitch black out and beginning to snow again. Kat’s car speeds by.

INT. FIRST CAR - CONTINUOUS

Doug is looking at the map.

DOUG
This is your map? This map sucks.

KAT
We should probably stop for the night. It’s snowing anyway.

DOUG
If you go a little further there’s a city. Then we can park the car in an alley or something.

Kat looks at Doug, who smiles.

KAT
Okay.

EXT. CLEARSTONE CITY LIMITS - NIGHT

Snow is coming down more heavily. The car drives past a sign that reads “Now Entering Clearstone City.” The city looms ahead.

EXT. CLEARSTONE CITY BLOCK - NIGHT

The car drives slowly through snow-covered roads, finally stopping and backing into an alleyway.

INT. FIRST CAR - LATER

Kat lies down in the backseat. Doug is in front trying to get comfortable. Their supplies are in various places on the floor in the front and back.

DOUG
Ow!

KAT
You all right up there?

DOUG
Yeah, I’m fine. I just bumped the stick shift.

KAT
You can sleep back here if you want.

DOUG
No no, that’s fine. It’s nice to have somewhere to sleep in the first place.

KAT
Okay.

DOUG
G’night.

Kat huddles up, then reaches into her pocket. There’s a little CLICK as she puts her hand around her gun. Doug moves his head towards her slightly.

DOUG (CONT'D)
I think we should agree to not kill each other.

Silence.

DOUG (CONT'D)
Okay, Kat?

Kat says nothing at first.

KAT
Okay, Doug.

Kat relaxes some, but keeps her hand in her pocket.
