Page six

I need to do backgrounds on all of my main characters and get their loves, fears, ambitions, desires and all that crap fleshed out. It might create better dialogue and scenes. I’ll worry about it later. I’m trying to keep pace with the date. Today is the 8th and I’ve only written 6 1/2 pages, so I’m getting behind. I’ll try to get caught up tonight.

Here’s page six:

INT. JIMMY’S OFFICE – CONTINUOUS

DINO, 40s, is sitting in a chair across from a desk.

JIMMY
I never thought I’d have to chase you down, Dino.

Jimmy sits across from him at the desk.

DINO
I’m sorry, Jimmy, I’m sorry. Look, man, I got in over my head. I was double-crossed. I had a buyer lined up and on the way…

JIMMY
(interupts)
Dino, I don’t want the labor pains. Just deliver the baby.

DINO
What?

JIMMY
Aren’t women expensive?

DINO
What? Yeah, sure. I guess so.

JIMMY
You guess so? Didn’t Perry find you with your girlfriend, cheating on your wife?

DINO
Yeah.

Jimmy gets out of his chair and sits across Dino.

JIMMY
I have a wife. She’s expensive. Always with the shoes. So here I am, with a wife that I can barely afford, loaning you money. And you have a wife AND a girlfriend and you’re borrowing money from me.

There’s a several second pause in the room.

DINO
I don’t know what you want, Jimmy?

JIMMY
What I want? I want my money back plus the juice that’s owed on it on the date I’ve provided you to return it.

DINO
But I don’t have the money.

JIMMY
So I guess we have a dilemma. I guess, since you spent all my money on your girlfriend, I’ll have to have a girlfriend myself. Martin, go get me a girlfriend.

MARTIN
Yes, sir.

DINO
Jimmy, don’t, please. She has nothing to do with it.

JIMMY
Give me my money back and I’ll give you your girlfriend back.
