The Second Best Man

FADE IN:

INT. PARTY ROOM – NIGHT

It’s the middle of a bachelor party, one that has gone terribly wrong. The groom is angry. He is VINCENT, 30, a geeky-looking man now powered by a terrible rage. His face is florid and he is rushing across the room at JON, 30. Jon looks horrified at how badly things have gone.

VINCENT
Jon, I’m going to kill you!

Vincent tries to grab a nightstick out of the hands of RAMON. He appears to be a policeman but is tan, buff, and not wearing a shirt. Another buff and shirtless man, JACKSON, stands next to him. He is wearing parachute pants.

JACKSON
Dude! Chill!

Vincent and Ramon struggle for control of the nightstick while shocked PARTYGOERS watch. A half-naked stripper, DAWN, is among them, her strip routine interrupted. BARRY, 30, lecherously tries to console her.

VINCENT
I’m going to beat you fags to death!

JACKSON
Who you calling gay!

JON
Vincent, I’m sorry! Just calm down!

JACKSON
(to no one in particular)
Just cause a man likes his body, don’t make him gay.

KATIE, 26, wades into the middle of the fight, trying to pull the nightstick away from Vincent and Ramon. She is Vincent’s younger and tougher sister.

KATIE
My brother is in idiot.

Jon rushes in to help. Vincent, Ramon, Katie and Jon all have hold of the nightstick. As they fight, they begin spinning around in a circle, all of them SHOUTING.

VINCENT
I’m going to kill you!

JON
I’m sorry!

KATIE
Vince, stop this right now!
