Life...an Average Story #2
EXT. HOUSE- DAY
Briant is carrying two suitcases to the trunk on his (BLUE!) car.
Jessica comes out of the house carrying arm fulls of stuff (including a backpack, two large bags, and a large stuffed lion under her arm).
Where are you going to put all that?
What do you mean?
We don't have a lot of room in the car.
Why couldn't you have bought a bigger car?
I'm not the one bringing a bunch of crap. And this car is a work of art.
It's an Oldsmobile....OLD! It doesn't even have air bags!
Well then let's hope we don't hit a bump.
Jessica tries shoving her stuff into the trunk.
Do you really have to bring all that stuff?
I need it.
Are you serious? We're only going downstate for a five days you're not going to need all that stuff, but whatever.
Briant gets in the driver's seat. Jessica opens the door to sit by him.
Get in the back, we're getting Kara too.
Why can't she sit in the back?
Jessica sits in the back. Their mom joins them, she sits by Jessica.
Are we getting Kara?
Briant starts the car, they pull away.
INT. CAR- DAY
I forgot to say goodbye to Thomas.
I think he'll be fine.
He's a turtle! He can't hear or understand you.
He knows my voice. He'll cry.
Are we still talking about the same turtle? Thomas, the possessed turtle, right?
Oh boy. We're not going back.
Nope. There is nothing you can say to get me to turn this car around.
Then you leave me no choice.
Jessica prepares herself, it looks like she's about to scream... ( we do a fast cut to-)
EXT. HOUSE- DAY
It looks like Briant changed his mind, they pull back in.
Jessica takes a gulp of water.
