[FADE IN on carports with “MARRIOTT MARQUIS HOTEL” printed on the side of each awning. FADE to the empty bar. Clair, the bartender is wiping down the bar when Cindy walks in smoking a cigarette.]

Clair: Hi. What can I get you?

Cindy: [quickly] Mandarin Cosmopolitan–you know what, make it two of ‘em.

Clair: Long day?

Cindy: [sounding stressed out] I just spent eight hours sitting through a realty workshop.

Clair: Ughhh. Sounds rough. I tell you what, I’ll give you two, all right? They’re both on me. My name’s Clair, if you need anything.

Cindy: [smiles] Oh, thanks, I’m Cindy.

Clair: Nice to meet you.

[CUT back to a wider shot of the bar. Two dorky-looking young men have suddenly appeared sitting very low at the bar to Cindy’s right. Both have very curly hair; one wears a suit, and the other a dark orange sweater.]

Wayne: Uh, we couldn’t help overhearing you order a “Mandarin Cosmopolitan”?

Kip: Uh, we were thinking about ordering one, too–uh, hope it’s a drink!

[Both men laugh stupidly for a long moment.]

Wayne: I hope it’s not a new car. [both laugh] I’m already driving a piña colada.

[They keep laughing as Cindy smokes her cigarette and stares at them in disbelief.]

Kip: My name’s Kip Bloder, this is my brother Wayne.

Cindy: [dryly] That would make you the Bloder brothers.

[Both of them again laugh stupidly.]

Wayne: We got a live one here–not like the ones in our basement.

[forced laughter]

Kip: Don’t be afraid. [laughs]

Wayne: Be VERY afraid. [laughs]

Kip: No, really, don’t be afraid, uh, we’re only kidding.

Wayne: Or ARE we?

[forced laughter]

Clair: Wayne, Kip, why don’t you leave the lady alone?

Cindy: Oh, don’t worry, Clair. I don’t think these Muppets here could hurt me.

[The brothers laugh as if shocked by her words.]

Kip: Well, I, for one, just changed my name to Elmo. Tickle me… [laughs]

Wayne: Uh, can you tell me how to get to “Sesame Street”?

Kip: No, but I can tell you how to get to “Insult Boulevard.” [points in Cindy’s direction] It’s right over there. [both laugh]

Wayne: Good one.

[The brothers continue to laugh annoyingly.]

Wayne: Uh, I think overheard you tell the bartender your name is Cindy?

Cindy: [snuffs out cigarette] Uh, yeah, that’s right, but why don’t you just refer to me as “not in a million years”?

[Brothers laugh loudly]

Kip: Ouch!

Wayne: I felt that one. Put your gloves down, Cassius Clay!

Cindy: [grinning] I’m going for the knockout!

Kip: You are already a knockout!

[Amazingly, Cindy joins in and laughs as hard the the brothers.]

Cindy: Oh, God. I didn’t think I was gonna laugh tonight!

Kip: Want another laugh? Guess what we do for a living.

Cindy: Well, it can’t be as boring as real estate. Go ahead.

Wayne: Uh, buckle up, here it comes. [laughs]

Kip: We calibrate thermostats for industrial refrigerators.

Cindy: [raises finger in air] Ding, ding, ding, I think we have a winner!

[All laugh heartily]

Cindy: Or, should I say, “losah”!

Brothers: [in unison] HI-HO!!

[Cindy reaches over and digs in her box of cigarettes, but it is empty.]

Cindy: Oh, hey, I gotta go get more cigarettes, I’ll be right back. [walks off behind brothers] Why don’t you watch my seat?

[Now genuinely surprised, the brothers laugh and look at each other in disbelief.]

Clair: Boy, you guys, this is the longest time a woman has ever talked to you!

Wayne: Hey, I don’t care whose dream it is, don’t wake me!

Kip: [points to himself] More sleeping pills, please! [laughs]

Wayne: Hey, if I do wake up, please hit me with a mallet! [laughs]

[Cindy walks back in with a fresh pack of cigarettes.]

Cindy: Ohhh, I’m back. I hope you don’t mind if I smoke. [lights a cigarette]

Wayne: Um, you’re ALREADY smokin’.

[Both brothers snicker for a long moment.]

Kip: [pointing toward his throat] I’m suffering from smoke INHALATION.

Cindy: [flirtatiously] Want me to give you some mouth-to-mouth?

[All laugh]

Kip: Yikes.

Wayne: [momentarily nonchalant] Uh, you are, you’re one hot realtor, Cindy.

Cindy: [suggestively] Hey… what do you say we check out my room upstairs, huh?

[The brothers are stunned to silence.]

Wayne: Uh, I’ll, I’ll show you my piece of land if you show me yours.

Cindy: Let’s go!

[The brothers laugh nervously.]

Cindy: Let’s go up to my room. Come on, I’ve got a minibar… [in a husky, sexy voice] We’ll smoke some pot…

[The brothers appear mortified.]

Wayne: Uh, uh, uh, unfortunately, uh, we left all our pots in the kitchen.

Cindy: Come on, let’s take the party upstairs. I mean, isn’t that where all this is heading anyway?

[The brothers fidget silently.]

Cindy: [a bit pleadingly] Let’s go!

Kip: Go, go, Gadget.

Cindy: [losing patience] That’s so lame, you two are shaking like a leaf! I mean, come on, are we going or not?

Wayne: Uh, knock, knock, who’s there?

Cindy: I can’t believe this. [rises to leave] Bad Day, Part 2: I can’t even get laid by the Bloder brothers!

[Cindy stalks out of the bar.]

Clair: Nice work, gents! The earth just, uh, collided with Mars, a pig just flew by, and hell just froze over! You BLEW it, losers!

Kip: [teasingly] Why don’t you tell us what you REALLY feel?

[They begin to laugh as before.]

Wayne: I mean, we like things fast, but that was the Indy 500!

[The brothers laugh again for a moment, and then grimace in unison and begin to cry softly. They alternate laughing and crying for a moment.]

Wayne: Hey, Clair, could you call our dad and ask him to come pick us up, please?

[They keep laughing and crying by turns. FADE to black over cheers and applause.]
