Holidays are coming

INT. OFFICE, DAY
A group of office workers are giving a colleague the "bumps" for her birthday. Everyone is laughing, having a great time


ASSEMBLED

five! Six! Seven! Eight!


A man rushes forward, laughing happily, with a sword held aloft. He brings it down across the birthday girls middle, cutting her in half. Everyone screams and in panic, runs. The man is left, covered in blood, still laughing, though looking slightly confused as to why every one has left.

Make me an quiche

INT. DINING ROOM, HOUSE, EVENING.
A MAN is lying unconscious on the floor. There is a dinner set. A woman the man's WIFE appears to be desperately trying to revive him. A young boy, the SON is standing tearfully nearby



WIFE

WIFE

She stands up, away from the fallen figure and folds her arms



SON
Mummy, call an ambulance.

WIFE
Well, I would call an ambulance, if your father had the common decency to talk to me when asked.

SON
But he's bleeding

WIFE
Obviously not enough to have a conversation with his own wife. Kindly tell your father, if he wants help, he would do well to remember his wedding vows

She takes her seat at the table and resumes eating



SON
Mummy?

WIFE
Eat your peas.
