Zorro punches guy, Ms.Zeta Jones strikes guy with sword, Zorro strikes guy with sword. Ms. Zeta Jones and Zorro are back to back.)

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Mi Amor!! You did it! You saved California!

Antonio/Zorro: No, we saved California!

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Oh!(Leans for a kiss, Antonio signals no and pulls away)

Gary: And…Cut! All right, all right. Nice job, nice job. Excellent, excellent.

Antonio Banderas: Thank you everyone. I´m afraid I cannot continue with this scene so at this time I bid you adieu. I´ll be in my chair.(Walks off set)

Catherine Zeta-Jones: OK, what´s going on Gary? What happened to the kiss?

Gary: OK, uh, how do I say this? Umm, Antonio is really freaked out about germs and this avian bird flu thing.

Antonio: Yeah, and herpes too!

Gary: Yeah, that´s right and herpes too.

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Well, I don´t have herpes.

Gary: Look, I´m pretty sure you don´t. But this agent is threatening to pull him from the picture if he has to do any kissing.

Catherine Zeta-Jones: This is crazy!

(Faked concern)

Gary: I know!! Right!?

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Antonio won´t kiss me because he thinks I have the bird flu?

Gary: “A” I´m not here to judge anybody. “B” What you did in Asia with birds is your business. And “C” some of my best friends have herpes.

Catherine Zeta-Jones: I don´t have herpes!

Gary: Whatever, look don´t worry. We have a great stand-in and he looks just like Antonio.

(Next to Antonio poses a fat guy practicing sword movements dressed like Zorro, Antonio gets up and introduces the guy)

Antonio Banderas: Everyone, it is my absolute pleasure to introduce to you my cousin/stand-in, Miguelito. Miguelito, this is Catherine.

Miguelito: It is an honor to meet you miss Catherine Zeta “Hones”. (Checks her out)And may I say you have a lovely set of “Hones”!

(Not amused)

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Excuse me. Are you talking about my chest?

(Antonio interferes)

Antonio Banderas: Uh-huh, you have trouble understanding the language of amore, miss “Hones”. What he meant to say is you have very lovely “tetas”. (tits)

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Oh, gross!

Gary: Hey!, can we please be professional, Catherine?

Catherine Zeta-Jones: What!?

Gary: (mocking) What?! OK, everybody quiet on the set and let´s roll sound!

Antonio Banderas: And I will sit here and stare at you guys make out big time. (Sits next to Gary)

AD: “Legend of Zorro” Scene 48, take one. (Clack!)

Gary: And, Action!

(On set, Catherine and Miguelito back to back)

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Mi amor! You did it! You saved California!

Miguelito: No problemo! I did it for you! So we could kiss like 2 giraffes sucking the milk out of a coconut! (Tires to aggressively kiss her, Ms. Zeta Jones pulls back)

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Oh, OK cut! That´s not the line! Can we cut?

Antonio Banderas: No,no,no. Perfecto! Great acting, Miguelito! Good, good, good.

Gary: Yeah, Catherine, what´s wrong? That was going great.

Catherine Zeta-Jones: No, it wasn´t! Where did you get this guy, Gary? He´s horrible!

Antonio Banderas: I found him passed out in my jacuzzi.

Catherine Zeta-Jones: I thought you said he was your cousin.

Antonio Banderas: Well, he´s like a cousin to me.

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Well, he smells like a corpse.

Antonio Banderas: Don´t worry about that. Miguelito get on top of her and do the tonguey-tonguey thing.

Catherine Zeta-Jones: I am seriously going to throw up.

Miguelito: What a beautiful coincidence, my love! I threw up not 5 minutes ago! (Bows) Word to the wise! Stay away from the fish and bean chalupas. Is…not so good.

Gary: Awesome, awesome. All right, let´s do…what did Fellini called it? “Face intercourse”.

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Oh, shut up, Gary!

Gary: You know what? You´re right Catherine. I´m really sorry about this…KISS HER NOW, MIGUELITO!!!

Antonio Banderas: YEAH, KISS HER!!

Gary: GET HER!!

(Miguelito tries once more but Catherine pushes away hard)

Catherine Zeta-Jones: No, you didn´t even say the line!! Please!!

Gary: Ok, all right everyone! That´s lunch. Back in an hour. Fish and bean chalupas are in Miguelito´s trailer. So get those while they´re there. Let´s do that.

(Catherine discusses with Antonio)

(Cheers and Applause)
