INT. THE MAXWELL KITCHEN - LATE EVENING
Emily is sitting at the table with a fashion magazine,
Joanie is anxiously pacing the room.
Joanie, will you roost somewhere?
Kyle will get here when he gets
here. It's not even midnight.
It's still early for a Saturday
night. If anything had happened,
the police would have called here
A car door slams, and both girls rush to the door. Emily
holds the door open as David helps an obviously inebriated
Kyle get into the house.
I'll put on some coffee.
David and Emily help Kyle through the kitchen and on into
the living room. They disappear momentarily, and return.
Joanie has four mugs set out on the counter, waiting for
the coffee to perk
you won't need that fourth mug.
It's not going to do him any
good, and I doubt if he'll be
able to keep it down anyway.
Won't it help sober him up?
No, only time and sleep will do
that. You might want to get a
pail or a basin to put beside the
couch. Beer vomit is sure to ruin
the rug. You might want to get
him an ice pack and some gauze as
well.You couldn't see it with his
head down when we came in, but
his face isn't too pretty right
Joanie went to get an ice pack and some first aid supplies.
How come you let Kyle get all
drunked up, and apparently all
beat up as well? I can understand
if it was a barroom brawl, but you
seem to have escaped unscathed.
Retching sounds, slurred threats and a short howl of pain
can be heard from the other room. A startled female squeal
and Running footsteps to the downstairs bathroom is also
clearly audible in the kitchen.
Poor Joanie. Unless I'm badly
mistaken, Kyle puked on her.
Loud snores issue forth from the living room, and Joanie can
be heard running upstairs to change.
It's a good thing my parents are
away in Peterborough this
weekend, Or mom would not be a
happy camper. Dad would probably
laugh it off, because I've heard
some stories of his misspent
Emily fills her coffee mug and David's. She goes to the
cupboard and gets out a box of cereal.
Do you want some cereal David?
He shakes his head and she gets a bowl from the cupoard, and
milk from the fridge. She sits at the table to eat her
Is Jeff's dead body in the trunk
of your car? do we have to bury
his body somewhere, or better
yet, burn it?
wha....? Ha ahahah ahahha!
David spits his coffee out as he laughs loud and long.
Who do you think we are.. Bonnie
and clyde? Remind me to take you
along the next time I plan a
murder! I'll tell you everything
as soon as Joanie comes down. I'm
not going to tell the whole thing
Joanie enters with a towel around her hair. She wears a
How's our drunken idiot doing?
He's fine. He's sleeping it off. I
treated his wounds. He has one
black eye and a reasonably deep
cut under the other one. The ice
pack helped. He asked for Aspirin
so I gave it to him with water.
Not that it did him any good.
He spewed it right back at me.
Joanie goes to the counter , gets coffee, and sits at the
Okay, I want the whole story, and
it better be good. My one and
only silk shirt may be ruined. If
it is, both of you are going to
buy me a new one!
