I was foolishly courageous and bitterly sad


After I've said "I love you", you went to his bed.


I know it's been years but you seemed so glad


When you smiled at him and took his ring instead.


I've been wondering here for some time as I whisper your name wherever to I am led


Today, you're sipping tea in the suburbs yet I'm still dead.


 


Hope you folks like it :)

Let’s make a building taller than the sky


It doesn't matter if the money belongs to the people near by.


Oh honey, have no fear. Nothing can happen to us, you see?


As long as we keep calling ourselves AIG…


 


(Political, I know... XD)

Regular_Joe's first draft REMIXED! (Because this is what it's all about) Basically a bit changed and a bit formulated. Hope you'd like it :)


 


EXT.  STREET - DAY


 


REBECCA, 20s, home from work, gets out of her car and walks to her door.  We like her.


 


EXT.  APARTMENT DOOR - CONTINUOUS


 


REBECCA is about to head inside, but she notices an ENVELOPE leaned up against her door. The envelope is UNADDRESSED, but it's ornately decorated with cute romantic DRAWINGS.


 


She LOOKS AROUND.  Who put this here?  Mildly charmed, she unlocks her door and steps inside.


 


INT.  REBECCA'S APARTMENT - CONTINUOUS


 


Rebecca OPENS THE LETTER and begins to read.


 


A sweet MALE VOICE reads the letter in voice-over, accompanied by romantic MUSIC.  Throughout the voice-over, we also INTERCUT to cute romantic ANIMATIONS of the drawings on the envelope and short romantic clips of couples in love (NOT Rebecca).


 


MALE VOICE:


My love, it was so great to see you yesterday.  Your smile lights up the spring.  Your eyes show me a future of happiness.  Your body makes me wish I was your clothes, so I could be wrapped around you all day.  Until next time, my thoughts will be only of you. 


 


The voice-over sequence ends gently.


 


REBECCA is sheepishly amused.


 


She pulls out a pen and a pad of Post-Its from her purse.  She sticks a Post-It on the envelope and writes: "SORRY, WRONG APARTMENT".  Heads outside again...


 


EXT.  APARTMENT DOOR - CONTINUOUS


 


She places the ENVELOPE with POST-IT back where she found it.  Then decides to move it a bit, so it's not right up against her door.


 


From inside, her PHONE RINGS.  She goes back inside.


 


INT.  REBECCA'S APARTMENT - CONTINUOUS


 


She checks who's calling.  Then answers the phone.


 


REBECCA:


Hi mom.


 


MOM:


What's wrong?


 


REBECCA:


Nothing.  What do you mean?


 


MOM:


You sound upset.


 


REBECCA:


No I don't.


 


MOM (not believing her):


Alright.


 


Rebecca SIGHS.


 


MOM:


What?


 


REBECCA:


Nothing.  How was your day?


 


 


MOM:


Oh, you know, same old.  How was your day?  You're the one with the exciting new life.


 


REBECCA:


Mom-- 


 


MOM:


What?  You are.


 


Rebecca SHAKES HER HEAD and SMILES to herself.  Then...


 


REBECCA:


My day was great.


 


MOM:


Did you meet anybody new?


 


REBECCA:


Yeah actually, I met this awesome guy and I think he's gonna ask me to marry him.


 


MOM:


What?  Oh.  Ha ha.


 


REBECCA:


Well who do you think I'm gonna meet?  I hang out with nine-year-olds all day.


 


MOM:


I don't know, aren't there other teachers?


 


REBECCA:


I've met the other teachers.


 


MOM:


All of them?


 


REBECCA:


Yes.


 


MOM:


Every single one?


 


REBECCA:


I don't know, probably.


 


MOM:


You know Joan’s girl, she signed to this thing Jdate….


 


REBECCA:


Oh come on ma-


 


MOM:


What? It could be good for you!


 


REBECCA:


I’m not gonna sign up to some online dating site.


 


 


MOM:


Why not? Joan’s daughter just got engaged.


 


 


REBECCA:


She looks like Freddy Krueger’s wife, she’d take anyone.


 


MOM:


He’s a doctor. 


(BEAT)


 And Jewish.


 


REBECCA SIGHS.


 


REBECCA:


Goodbye mom.


 


MOM:


I’m just saying.


 


 


REBECCA:


Goodbye.


 


MOM:


Alright, bye.


 


 


EXT.  STREET - DAY


 


REBECCA, home from work another day, gets out of her car. She takes out a brown bag filled with groceries and walks to her door murmuring the Dire Straits’ “Romeo and Juliet”.


 


REBECCA:


 “Juliet the dice were loaded..”


 


 


EXT.  APARTMENT DOOR - CONTINUOUS


 


REBECCA:


“…And I bet and you”


As REBECCA gets near the door, SUDDENLY the grocery bag rips and everything falls down  into a big mass.


 


REBECCA (Kneels down to the floor):


Shit! 


 


REBBECA picks up the groceries from the floor, not even looking what she picks up. She hurries to catch all the sliding cans, tomatoes.


 


REBECCA:


Oh man.


 


CLOSE SHOT: FLOOR


REBECCA’S HANDS are picking up food, and also a BROWN PAPER BAG WITH BOLD MARKS ON IT, though we cannot see what’s written we know it is not a part of the groceries from the neatly way it waits on the door step.


 


 


INT.  REBECCA'S APARTMENT - CONTINUOUS


 


REBBECA quickly runs into the kitchen her hands are filled with the groceries, she sets them on the counter.


 


She  sighs, goes through the cabins and takes out a bottle of pills.


 


CLOSE SHOT: PILL BOTTLE  -


Labeled with MIGRALEVE, a pill is pushed into her palm.


 


She takes the pill.


 


She notices THE BROWN PAPER BAG on the counter.  Written on the bag in big bold marker, the words: "DON'T TELL".  Also, similarly to the envelope, the bag is ornately decorated with cute romantic DRAWINGS.


 


Now she's SCARED.  Scary MUSIC kicks in.  She moves to pick up the bag.


 


INTERCUT with ANIMATIONS of the drawings on the bag, but they're not cute anymore, now they're genuinely frightening.


 


INTERCUT with various brief moments shot from a STALKER'S POV of Rebecca alone in her apartment: eating, talking on the phone, in her pajamas, etc.


 


INTERCUT with various scared / screaming women in cinema (e.g Psycho)


We hear SNIPPETS of the same sweet MALE VOICE reading the same LOVE LETTER from the previous scene.


 


She opens the bag and pulls out a BLUE DILDO.


 


The INTERCUTTING grows faster and more intense as she looks at the thing, upset.


 


She puts the DILDO back in the BAG.  And as she does so, The INTERCUTTING, MUSIC and VOICE-OVER all abruptly stop.


 


She LOOKS AROUND startled. Where did this come from? She nevousley walks to the door and opens it:


 


EXT.  APARTMENT DOOR - CONTINUOUS


 


She looks both ways but there’s no one there.


 


 


BLACK.


 


Silence.


 


STARTLINGLY, Rebecca's phone RINGS.


 


INT.  REBECCA'S APARTMENT - NIGHT


 


Rebecca is STARTLED by the sound, but immediately relieved it's just the phone.


 


Time has passed since last we saw her.  She's been living with a stalker, and it's wearing on her.  The blinds on all the windows are closed.


 


She checks her phone as it rings.  Doesn't want to answer.  But then she PUTS ON A BRAVE FACE, and picks up. An excited, L.A-like FEMINIM VOICE is on the line.


 


SCARLETT:


Hey bitch!


 


 


REBECCA:


 Oh hi Scarlett.


 


SCARLETT:


 Are you okay?


 


REBECCA:


 Yeah I'm fine, what do you mean?


 


SCARLETT:


 I've been calling like crazy


 


REBECCA:


 Yeah sorry, I couldn't pick up before.  How's everything with you?  


 


There's a NOISE from somewhere, probably outside.  Rebecca is STARTLED again, and this time remains scared.  But she maintains her casual conversational tone of voice.


 


SCARLETT:


I’m fine.


 


REBECCA:


 Yeah? 


 


SCARLETT:


 Yeah, it’s just that my stupid boss is making me work late – again.


 


Tense, Rebecca peers out the room's various WINDOWS, peeking around the closed blinds.  She doesn't see anything.


 


SCARLETT:


So how’s the teaching job going on?


 


REBECCA:


Alright.


 


SCARLETT:


 Yeah?


 


REBECCA:


Yeah, really good.


 


SCARLETT:


 And how's the place, any good?


 


REBECCA:


 Yeah.


 


SCARLETT:


You’re coming this weekend, right?


REBECCA doesn’t pay that much of a close attention to the conversation, walking around her house looking for something, frightened.  


 


 


REBECCA:


  I guess… I don’t know


 


SCARLETT:


Oh come on! We’re gonna try out this new Kareoke bar in the valley.


 


 


REBECCA:


Uh-huh…


 


 


SCARLETT:


What are you doing?


 


 


REBECCA:


 What do you mean?


 


SCARLETT:


 I don't know, it sounds like you're in the middle of something, or...


 


 


REBECCA:


 Nope.  Just talking to you.


 


BEAT.


 


REBECCA:


 Well, I guess I'll talk to you later.


 


SCARLETT:


Wait—Are you with a guy?


 


REBECCA:


 No, I wake up early now, remember?


 


SCARLETT:


Yeah right.


 


REBECCA:


 Okay.  Uh.. Listen Scarlett


 


SCARLETT:


 Yeah?


 


REBECCA:


 Oh, I just, no I just remembered, never mind.


 


SCARLETT:


 What?


 


REBECCA:


 No, nothing.


 


SCARLETT:


Oh! I think I know what’s going on. Don’t worry just have him to put a condom


 


 


REBECCA:


 It’s okay.


 


SCARLETT:


Okay, call me if you need something.


 


REBECCA:


 Okay. Bye.


 


SCARLETT:


Have fun!


 


Rebecca HANGS UP.  Still disturbed by the noise from before, but what can she do?


 


She heads into her BEDROOM.


 


 


 


 


EXT.  STREET - DAY


 


Rebecca, home from work, is TENSE today as she gets out of her car and walks to her door. She looks down at the floor and walks quickly to her apartment. She almost speaks to herself; we can tell there’s something on her mind.


 


EXT.  APARTMENT DOOR - CONTINUOUS


 


She half-expects to find something terrible at her door.  But there isn't anything.


 


She looks around, nervous.  Then quickly goes inside.


 


INT.  REBECCA'S APARTMENT - CONTINUOUS


 


She ENTERS, puts down her things, still nervous.


 


She checks all around the place, making sure nobody's there.


 


 


CUT TO:


 


Quick Hip-Hop montage:


JUMP CUTS as she peers out all the WINDOWS, peeking around the closed blinds.


Checks the BEDROOM CLOSET.  JUMP CUTS as she throws out everything.


Checks under the bed, nada.


End of montage.


 


She's beginning to calm down as she heads back out into the living room.


 


And there's THE STALKER! Wearing a Nixon mask and naked, holding a gift box that covers his genitalia. His presence horribly STARTLING.


 


 


Rebecca SCREAMS.


 


 


 


BLACK.


 


Silence.


 


DOORBELL rings.


 


MOM:


Coming!


 


INT.  MOM'S HOUSE - DAY


 


MOM opens the door for REBECCA.


 


MOM:


 Hi!


 


REBECCA:


 Hey!


 


They embrace hello.


 


MOM:


 What's the matter?


 


REBECCA:


 Nothing. 


 


She FEIGNS A LAUGH, but it's unconvincing.


 


REBECCA:


 I...


 


She hesitates.


 


MOM:


 What?


 


REBECCA:


 No, I just said hi, nothing's... nothing.


 


MOM:


 Alright.  You sure?


 


REBECCA:


Yeah!


 


MOM:


Okay, fine.  You want something?


 


REBECCA:


Water.


 


INT.  MOM'S DINING ROOM - CONTINUOUS


 


A GLASS OF WATER set on the table in front of REBECCA.  MOM sits down too.


 


MOM:


So, how's work going?


 


REBECCA:


I love it.  I actually never like leaving at the end of the day.


 


MOM:


Well, you go home and you're alone.


 


REBECCA:


You know, I actually hadn't thought of that, thanks for pointing that out.


 


MOM:


You’re such a beautiful woman, it’s a shame you don’t try to get out more.


 


 


 


REBECCA:


Jesus mom.


 


 


MOM:


 You know Tom and Suzy’s son just graduated from Columbia, if you want we could--


 


REBECCA (Interrupts her):


What have you been getting up to, mom?


 


MOM:


Oh you know, same old.  How's the place, still good?


 


BEAT as Rebecca hesitates again.


 


REBECCA:


It's great, it's really starting to feel homey.


 


MOM:


Did you try the thing for the towels?


 


REBECCA:


Yeah...


 


She's having trouble hiding her horrible anxiety.


 


REBECCA:


It didn't work though. 


 


MOM:


Well don't worry too much, it's terry cloth.


 


REBECCA:


No, I don't care about the fucking towels...


 


She's become quite emotional.  MOM is earnestly concerned for the first time.


 


MOM:


Baby, what's wrong?


 


Rebecca tries to speak, but she can't.


 


REBECCA:


 I... I don't know.


 


MOM:


It's okay, you can tell me.


 


REBECCA:


No I can't!


 


MOM:


Yes you can.


 


REBECCA:


No, because if I tell you, you're gonna freak out, and nothing's gonna get better, it's just gonna get worse and worse, and you're gonna try to tell me to come home, and I'm not doing that, I'm not--


 


MOM:


Okay, okay, shh, shh, shhh... everything’s gonna be just fine.


 


MOM moves to her daughter and EMBRACES her, comforting her.  A long genuine moment of comfort.  Rebecca takes a DEEP BREATH.


 


REBECCA:


There's a man stalking me.


 


MOM:


What!?


 


REBECCA:


Mom!  Don't get mad, just listen please--


 


MOM:


What do you mean there's a man--


 


REBECCA:


Mom, would you just please!


 


MOM:


Okay, okay.  Just tell me, what happened?


 


Rebecca takes another BREATH.  Then, as she speaks, she reaches into her PURSE and pulls out a PLASTIC GROCERY BAG from which she takes out a few ENVELOPES, each ornately decorated with cute romantic drawings.


 


REBECCA:


He started leaving me love letters.  At first I didn't even know they were for me.  I thought they were for somebody else.  They weren't addressed to anybody--


 


MOM has found the BROWN BAG and pulled out the BLUE DILDO.


 


MOM:


What is this?


 


REBECCA:


He left me that too.  That's when I started to feel like--


 


Mom flicks a switch and the DILDO STARTS VIBRATING. MOM who has never seen a dildo is SURPRISED.


 


REBECCA:


Okay, put that down.


 


Rebecca TAKES THE DILDO from Mom and SWITCHES IT OFF.


 


REBECCA:


Are you listening to--


 


MOM:


Is that yours?


 


REBECCA:


No!  I told you this man has been leaving things--


 


MOM:


But why would you keep it?


 


REBECCA:


What do you... I kept everything he left me so that I could--


 


BROTHER:


What is that?


 


Rebecca's teenage BROTHER has entered the dining room.


 


REBECCA:


It's evidence!  Okay?  It's evidence.


 


MOM:


Becky, don't point that thing at your brother.


 


REBECCA:


Fine!  I'm putting it away.


 


Perplexed and a bit disturbed, BROTHER BACKS OUT of the room.


 


REBECCA:


See this is exactly why I didn't want to talk about this with you.  Which is fucked up, because I should've said something a long time ago.  But I knew if I did, you'd--


 


MOM:


Wait a minute, how long has this been going on?


 


REBECCA:


Seven weeks.


 


MOM:


Seven... are you... this has been happening for seven weeks and you're just telling me now?


 


REBECCA:


I'm sorry.


 


MOM:


I’m calling the police.


 


 


REBECCA:


And what? Tell them your daughter just brought you her stalker’s blue dildo?


 


We hear the FRONT DOOR OPEN.


 


DAD:


Hi!


 


MOM / REBECCA:


Hi!  / Hi dad! 


 


BEAT.  Rebecca and mom look at each other.


 


MOM:


Let's not tell your father about this.  It'll just really upset him.


 


REBECCA:


Wait, why shouldn't--


 


MOM:


We'll talk about this more later.


 


Mom GETS UP and exits to attend to DAD.


 


REBECCA sits alone at the dining room table.  Incredulous.  Defiant.


 


Then she takes the BLUE DILDO out of the bag and stands it upright in the middle of the dining room table.


 


DAD –


Shocked, his eyes are wide open.


 


MOM –


She’s diffident. She tilts her head, quickly blinks and shakes her lips as she doesn’t know how to explain nor respond to this.


 


REBECCA EXITS.  Camera stays with the DILDO.


 


END.
