Elevator script

  • ELEVATOR TO PIER 88 RESTAURANT – GOLDEN TOWER – NIGHT
    Two starving friends dash onto an elevator to a Pier 88 restaurant on the very top floor of the building tower in hopes of getting food into their stomachs very soon. 
     
    PEBBLES
    UGH . . . I’m STARVING. Hurry, press the 88th button!
     
    MILLICENT
    (accidentally presses 66th button)
    Oh sh—GAH . . . oops.
     
    PEBBLES
    STUPID, now we have to wait a couple seconds longer to eat! 
     
    MILLICENT
    Sorry! I just can’t focus when all I can think about is the scrumptious food waiting for me upstairs. 
     
    PEBBLES
    I could kill you right now . . . I can’t believe you! Ugh, never mind that. I would do anything to have this elevator shoot up to the 88th floor right now!
     
    66th elevator door dings and doors slide open.
    A man concealed in a black cloak walks in with his head dipped low.
    Man grunts and turns his back to the girls.
    Pebbles shoots Millicent a quick glance.
    Millicent tries to stifle laughter but lets a LOUD guffaw escape.
     
    STRANGE MAN
    (slowly tilts head towards girls)
    Is there a problem, ladies?
     
    MILLICENT
    No! No, sir.
    (clears throat)
    I just felt an itch on my stomach and it tickled me when I itched myself.
    (nervous laugh)
     
    STRANGE MAN
    (raises eyebrow and mumbles)
    Odd . . . 
     
    PEBBLES
    (shocked expression and mumbles) 
    You’re the odd one, you freak.
     
    Millicent giggles.
    Strange Man whips around to face Pebbles and whacks Millicent in the face with his cloak.
     
    STRANGE MAN
    WHAT DID YOU SAY?!
     
    Millicent flails backward and slams head on multiple elevator buttons.
    Elevator rocks up and down in several short throbs and creaks to a painful stop.
     
    PEBBLES
    (stutters) 
    I . . I . . . I . . I . . . I . . I . . I . . . . . I didn’t say anything
     
    STRANGE MAN
    (sneers)
    You should fix that stutter of yours before you speak. And if you have anything to say about me, you should say it to MY FACE. 
    (points to his face that looks identical to a male version of Pebbles’ face)
     
    PEBBLES
    (mouth drops)
     OH . . . oh my god. Um . . . yes . . . sir?
     
    STRANGE MAN
    WHAT ARE YOU STARING AT NOW?!?!? You should really be helping your friend and checking to see if she’s bleeding. Maybe all of that nonsense giggling will spill out of her noggin. 
    (tries to mimic Millicent’s girlish giggle)
    EUGH! What a disgusting sound!
     
    Still staring in awe at the strange man, Pebbles bends down and places hand on Millicent’s head to check if she’s okay. 
     
    PEBBLES
    (hushed voice)
    Milli . . . Millicent . . . wake up! Please!
    (shakes Millicent)
    Please wake up!!
     
    The strange man reaches his hand out to the elevator buttons and waves his hand upward.
    The elevator roars back to life and shoots upwards at full speed.
    Millicent’s eyes flutter open and she stares straight at Pebbles.
     
    PEBBLES
    (gasps)
    You . . . why are you wearing a black cloak . . . wait, you’re not Millicent! 
    (squints eyes)
    But you look so much like her . . . WHAT DID YOU GUYS DO TO  MILLICENT?! GIVE HER BACK NOW! OR ELSE . . . OR ELSE . . . I’LL KILL YOU BOTH! 
    (jumps up and raises both arms up in karate stance)
     
    MILLICENT
    (cackles)
    What are you going to do to us? Give us punching massages with your bony hands? Your friend’s already waiting for you on the 88th floor.
     
    88th elevator door dings and creaks open.
    There is only empty sky in front of them.
     
    PEBBLES
    What is this? WHERE’S THE RESTAURANT? WHERE’S THE BUILDING? WHY ARE WE HANGING IN MID-AIR?
    (starts screaming nonsensically and pulling hair)
    I SWEAR IF YOU GUYS DON’T BRING US BACK TO THE GROUND, I WILL HAVE YOU BOTH IN PRISON. I’M CALLING THE COPS. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE. 
     
    The strange man and Millicent corner screaming Pebbles into corner of elevator.
    They cackle and sink their teeth into Pebbles’ neck and chew off huge chunks of her flesh and gobble down with glee.
    The more they eat Pebbles’ flesh, the more they start to look like Psy.
    After a short while, they both look identical to Psy.
    They suddenly break into the “Gangnam Style” horse dance in the elevator and gallop away into the night shrieking “AYY SEXY LADY”
