INT. FAMILY ROOM

A black futon is the center of the shot. It is kind of messy in a roundabout way. GIRL #7 sits on the futon. She holds a game controller in her hands and has a look of deep concentration on her face.

A different girl sits down with a blue, plastic lei in her hand. She puts it over GIRL #7's neck. GIRL #7's concentration breaks and she sets the controller down.

GIRL #7

(shocked)

I just got laid and it killed me.

Both girls burst out laughed at this play on words and the controller gets kicked off the foot rest. GIRL #7 bends to pick it up still laughing, but she is more controlled.

INT. EAR SISTER MEETING ROOM-DAY

GIRLS #10-13 sit at a curved table. Girl #15 stands in front of them. GIRL #15 taps her chest with her fist twice and slides a peace sign by her ear. The others follow suit.

GIRL #15

What business do we have to discuss today?

GIRL #12 stands and looks at GIRL #15

GIRL #12

(solemnly)

Yesterday, I saw Tammy use our symbol.

GIRL #10 quickly stands, causing her chair to fall over.

GIRL #10

(yelling)

This is an outrage! Non-Sisters cannot use our

symbol! It is a defilement of all we stand for!

GIRL #11 rights GIRL #10's chair and pulls GIRL #10 back into it.

GIRL #11

It's okay. I'm sure we will find a way to fix this.

GIRL #13 pushes her hair back.

GIRL #13

(passively)

I say we just kick her ass.

GIRL #15 looks at her disapprovingly

GIRL #15

(scolding)

Ear Sisters do not gang on confused girls and

beat them up. You know better than that.

She stops and looks at the still standing GIRL #12.

GIRL #15 CONT'D

I'll have a talk with Tammy. Maybe it was just a

misunderstanding.

GIRL #15 pauses and looks at everyone.

GIRL #15 CONT'D

Is there anything we need to talk about?

No one says anything and a long pause ensues in which GIRL #12 sits down. The news took it out of them.

GIRL #15

Alright then, I call this meeting of the Ear

Sisterhood to a close.

All girls repeat the symbol and shuffle off.

CUT OUT

INT. LIVING ROOM-NIGHT

There is a couch and on it sit three GIRLS. A movie is HEARD softly in the background. A confused look comes over the face of the middle GIRL #1, who has never seen the movie before.

GIRL #1

(yelling)

Why is she just standing there while the ROUS

attacks him? Do something! What are you-

GIRL #2 puts her hand over GIRL #1's mouth. GIRL #2 turns her head and glares at GIRL #1. GIRL #1 pushes GIRL #2's hand away and continues, standing as she rants.

GIRL #1

(yelling)

True love my butt! She's just sitting there

watching him get mauled by a ROUS!

GIRL #2 pulls GIRL #1 back on the couch and puts her hand on the far side of GIRL #1's head and her hand over GIRL #1 lips.

GIRL #2

Shh! This is the best part.

GIRL #1 licks the palm of GIRL #2's hand. GIRL #2 pulls her hand back and stands quickly. Her face is flushed in anger. She grabs the remote and brandishes it with fury.

GIRL #2

(passionately)

Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You licked

my hand. Prepare to die.

GIRL #1 stands up almost as roughly. She is gripping a different remote.

GIRL #1

I'm Luke Skywalker and you are my father.

A lightsaber SOUNDS as the blade opens. Just as the battle is about to begin, GIRL #3, who had until then just watched, sighs.

GIRL #3

C'mon you two! Why can't we ever get

through a full episode of "Foreplay On the

Frontier" with out a fight breaking out.

GIRL #3 looks to the sky, shaking her fists.

GIRL #3

(held out)

Why!

GIRL #18

Why are you rubbing me? It's awkward.

GIRL #17 gets a look a mischief in her eyes as she smiles.

GIRL #17

(still rubbing)

Awkward touching, awkward toughing, awkward

touching!

GIRL #18 shoves GIRL #17's hand off her coat.

GIRL #18

(exasperated)

Ugh, you are so childish sometimes!

With a scowl, GIRL #17 puts her glove back on and crosses her arms over her chest.

CUT OUT

INT. LIVING ROOM-NIGHT

GIRL #1 looks at the camera which is in the direction of the T.V. the audience does not see. Her face shows confusion and slight disappointment.

GIRL #1

(with confusion)

What was that?

GIRL #2 & 3

(in synch)

That was

Both GIRL # 2 & 3 turn their heads to look at GIRL #1. GIRL #1 looks straight ahead.

GIRL #2 & 3

"Random Movie 2!"
