WOMEN # 1

Men #11


The disappointed couple walks out of the doctor’s office, Abigail can no longer hold back the tears. A grimy looking, old woman walked over to them,


AUNT FLOSSY

What’s the matter deerie, why you crying so hard, is something wrong? Tell Aunt Flossy all about it, I’m a good listener.


Vincent tries to protect his wife from the seedy character.


VINCENT

She’s alright, now go away, it’s a private thing, you can’t help.


AUNT FLOSSY

But I can help. You just tell ole Aunt Flossy what the problem is and I know I can help”


VINCENT

I said go away!


Vincent put his arm between AUNT FLOSSY and his wife, Vincent hands AUNT Flossy a five dollar bill.


VINCENT

Here, take this and go!


AUNT Flossy quickly puts the money in her pocket, she continues to talk,


AUNT FLOSSY

Now for the five dollars, I can give you directions to a woman that can help you have a beautiful baby you want so bad.


Abigail stops crying. She is amazed that AUNT Flossy knows what is going on.


ABIGAIL

How did you know what I was crying about?


AUNT FLOSSY

Ole Aunt Flossy knows everything.


VINCENT

Isn’t it obvious? She saw us coming out of a gynecologist’s office crying, and she just deduced that you couldn’t have a baby. She’s no genius.”


AUNT FLOSSY

Yes, I’m no genius, but I do know of a lady who can help you have that baby. She uses ancient potions that have worked for centuries.


Vincent Is indignant with Aunt Flossy’s condescending tone.


VINCENT

I’m not putting my wife through any mumbo, jumbo potions!


Abigail, however, is curious.


VINCENT

Now Vincent, we tried everything else, let’s just go and see what she has to say, we can always so no, can’t we?


Vincent does not trust Aunt Flossy. 


VINCENT

Well, yes, but it might poison you or something, I couldn’t bare to live without you.


ABIGAIL

Let’s just try, honey, for me, what do you say?


VINCENT

Okay.



                                                                       Nurses


Nurse Selma and orderlies stand stone faced as the Buchanan's past by with Abigail holding the baby.


NURSE SELMA

Did you see their baby.


Nurse #2

Yeah I saw it, I almost threw up.


Nurse #3

I did throw up.


NURSE SELMA

Don't complain, I had to take care of IT, no one else would, so Dr. Levin made me do it. I hate him.


Nurse #4

I never saw it and I'm glad. What the fuck did they do, have sex with some kind of animal or something?


NURSE SELMA

I'm just glad they are gone.




             Extras- Nosey Neighbors


Vincent walks through the crowd of nosey neighbors.


NEIGHBOR ONE

They said she had post partum depression, I think she’s just plain crazy. You know they didn’t even give the baby a name.


NEIGHBOR TWO

I told the detective how I heard her say, that she hated her baby.


NEIGHBOR TWO

What kind of woman would hate her own baby?



Young Beautiful Girl


2 INT. Black Mamba's Door, Night


BLACK MAMBA

Hello, can I help you?


ASHLEY

Yes, my name is Ashley and I have a request that I’d like you to honor.


BLACK MAMBA

(Impressed) Come in, yes come in. My clientele has just improved. I'm anxious to know what a girl like you would want with me. I didn’t even arrange for you to come!


3 INT. Black Mamba's Living Room, Night


ASHLEY

I want to be beautiful. 


BLACK MAMBA

(Sly tone) Why?


ASHLEY

What kind of question is that? Everyone wants to be beautiful.


BLACK MAMBA

Yes but not everyone comes to me for it. Why not go to a plastic surgeon.


ASHLEY

My parents won’t pay for it. They say that I’m already beautiful, but all parents think their children are beautiful. I’m not beautiful enough.


BLACK MAMBA

Not beautiful enough for who?


Ashley refuses to answer and just dropped her head with a soft groan. 


ASHLEY

Mmm.


BLACK MAMBA

Well, answer my question. You have to if you want me to help you.


ASHLEY

Oh, alright. It’s this guy at my college who is the quarterback on the football team and I absolutely love him. I love the way he walks, talks and all the girls want him. I’ve got to have him for myself, so I’ve got to be the most beautiful girl on campus or he won’t even notice me.


BLACK MAMBA

Now I understand. Of course I can help you.


ASHLEY

Great. When does the process begin?




Nathaniel (Comedian)


A middle aged, man, bent over from a bout with polio as a child, hobbles up the street to Black Mamba’s house.


BLACK MAMBA

Nathaniel I told you before that I won't not do a charm for you unless you pay me up front.


NATHANIEL

(Obstinant) Yeah I heard you, Black Mamba, I have the money you want, I have it with me now, see.


Nathaniel pulls a scarf out of his shirt pocket, and presents it to Black Mamba. Black Mamba counts the money in the doorway.


BLACK MAMBA

Okay, come on in Mr. Nathaniel.


NATHANIEL

Oh now it’s Mr. Nathaniel cause I got money huh?


BLACK MAMBA

People aren't usually willing to pay a thousand dollars for one of my potions. Why do you want this thing so badly? It is a very unusual request!


NATHANIEL

Cause when I was a young boy I almost drowned and this thing, this creature tried to pull me down. My father pulled me up at the last second.


BLACK MAMBA

Then why do you want to find this creature if it tried to kill you?


NATHANIEL

That's just it I don't know if it was trying to kill me or if it just wanted me to follow her.


BLACK MAMBA

So you think it was a mermaid?


NATHANIEL

I almost sure of it.


BLACK MAMBA

Do you think this may have something to do with the fact that you can't get a real woman to look at you twice so you made up this fantasy fish woman?


NATHANIEL

(Angry) Look bitch, I can get a real woman if I want!


BLACK MAMBA

Oh you can, so where is she?


NATHANIEL

Look you just shut the hell up and give me my potion!


BLACK MAMBA

I'll have your potion for you in a few minutes. You wait here Nathaniel, I'll be right back so don't go anywhere.


NATHIEL

Oh I ain't going nowhere, you just hurry the fuck up!




DETECTIVE MASSEY


DETECTIVE MASSEY

Hello, I'm Detective Massey. Your wife is in the hospital.


VINCENT

Where’s my son?


DETECTIVE MASSEY

He’s missing, do you know where he is?


VINCENT

No I left him in the crib when I went to work, what happened?


DETECTIVE MASSEY

When the nanny came, the Nursery was covered with blood, and the baby was missing.


VINCENT

What about my wife?


DETECTIVE MASSEY

She was covered with blood too and babbling on about a potion and

a devil baby, and some flying creatures biting her and sucking her blood to feed the baby.


Vincent’s heart sinks in despair and he whispers to himself.


VINCENT

(Whispering) That’s why they bit me last night.


DETECTIVE MASSEY

Do you know anything of what she’s talking about?


Vincent stands stoned face for a few intense moments, then answers.


VINCENT

I have no idea what she’s talking about. All I know is that she had a very difficult pregnancy. Can I see my wife now?


DETECTIVE MASSEY

She’s in custody now, I suggest you get a good lawyer sir.




College Man


ASHLEY

Todd, do you think I'm beautiful?


TODD

Hell, yeah!


ASHLEY

How beautiful?


TODD

Girl, you're dead gorgeous and the most popular girl on the college campus. Even the girls stop and stare at your beautiful face. Why do you think I asked you out? I only date the most popular girls.


ASHLEY

Oh Todd you're so handsome. I just love you.


There is thundering and lightning showing through the window.


TODD

You love me huh, come on in the other room and prove how much you love me.


ASHLEY

What do you mean?


TODD

You know what I mean.


ASHLEY

I'm a virgin, and I want to stay that way until...


TODD

You can still be a virgin, I won't touch you there. You can prove your love like Monica Lewinsky did.


ASHLEY

What?


TODD

You know. (He points to his genitals)


ASHLEY

Oh you mean that...


Todd pulls Ashley off camera.


TODD

Come on baby it's time to prove how much you love me. If you do it real good, I'll let you hang with me on another date.




Ruthy

                        Fred

                                                   Doctor Daily


Fred opens the refrigerator.


FRED

What's in here to drink? Hmm, no beer. Oh, red punch. I'll take this.


FADE TO BLACK


7 INT. Ruthy's Living Room


Fred is sitting in his chair watching television. Ruthy walks in.


FRED

Umm, this is good. Ruthy, I drank your red juice, I’ll have to replace it later honey, I’m going to bed, I’m suddenly very sleepy.

......


The doorbell rings and Ruthy opens it to let Dr. Daily in.


Ruthy

Dr. Daily, I don’t’ know what ails him. I found him like this, lifeless.


Dr. Daily uses a stethoscope to examine Fred.


Ruthy

So do you know what's wrong with him?


DR. DAILY

I don’t know, I can’t find a thing wrong with him.


Ruthy wrings her hands and grabs her stomach


Ruthy

Can't you give my husband some sort of medicine that would revive him.


DR. DAILY

I am going to call someone to take him to the hospital. Keep him warm until they come. Don’t worry now Ruthy, we’ll get to the bottom of this. Let me get my phone book out of my car. I'll be right back.


Dr. Daily walks out of the door.


Ruthy

I've got to hurry, I only have a few minutes before Dr. Daily returns and sends Fred to the hospital. If they find out what I've done, I know they'll send me to jail.


Ruthy searches for the paper she wrote the chant on.


Ruthy

What were those words again, let me think, where did I put that paper?


She looks everywhere, but can not find it.


Ruthy

I’ll just have to do it from memory.

I will make you love me forever.

With the blood from your ear.


As soon as she says the words, Fred wakes up, picks up his steel pipe and starts smoking it.


Ruthy

Dr. Daily, my husband woke up.


Dr. Daily walks over to Fred.


Ruthy

Fred honey, Dr. Daily came to check up on you.

.......


Without any warning, Fred jumps up and stabs Dr. Daily in his ear with his steel pipe. Dr. Daily screams as Fred rips Dr. Daily’s pants off. And begins to brutally rape Dr. Daily once, twice and three times while he is constantly licking the blood from Dr. Daily's ear.


Ruthy

Stop Fred, stop. What are you doing? Stop!


No matter how much Dr. Daily claws and struggles he can’t get away from Fred. Ruthy is trying to stop Fred during the rapes to no avail. Suddenly Fred stops and drags Dr. Daily to the coat closet and locks him in.





NEWSCASTER (Male or Female)


NEWSCASTER


The jury is in on the Abigail Buchanan case, it’s life in prison

for her, with no chance of parole. The jurors did not believe the insanity plea by the defendant. The baby's body still has not been found.


The local police found a grim scene this morning at Mathis home on North Burns Street, in an affluent neighborhood. When Dr. Daily didn’t show up at his office today, investigators went to his last house call. They found Mr. Mathis in the house armed with a gun. After a four hour stand-off police shot the suspect to death. When they entered the house they found Ruthy Mathis murdered and Dr. Daily brutally raped. Dr. Daily was rescued and taken to the Sykes Institute for the Insane.




Ishmael (Hack)


ISHMAEL

(Politely) My name is Ishmael. Where are you going sir and madam?


VINCENT

To the Gatehouse Hotel on 8th Street.


ISHMAEL

Yes, I know where that is.


Vincent and Abigail talk about what has just happened at Black Mamba’s house.


ABIGAIL

We are certainly not going to make that ridiculous chant, “Baby, big and hairy!”


VINCENT

We wouldn’t even want our friends to see a baby like that! They laugh again.


ISHMAEL

I don’t mean to listen in, but I noticed that you taking a hack from the same street that Black Mamba lives on.


VINCENT

Oh we didn’t come from there, we were just out walking and it is so far back to our hotel, that we decided to take a hack.


ISHMAEL

Oh I understand, a lot of people go to her and then walk about a block away to get a hack. We drivers all know the deal. I just want to tell you that Black Mamba is not a good person like you think she is. She’s pure evil. You go to her for a spell that usually costs a lot of money and that spell always turns bad for the person.


VINCENT

What do you mean?


ISHMAEL

I can’t tell you any more, I’m risking my life just telling you this much.


VINCENT

Sir you have to tell us what you mean, you can’t leave us hanging with a statement like that!


ISHMAEL

Look, there’s your hotel, you must leave now.


VINCENT

No I won’t, not until you tell us what you’re talking about. What do you mean, the spells turn out bad?


The Ishmael looks in the rear view mirror and sees Black Mamba’s face in it.


ISHMAEL

(Frightened) Get out, get out!
