Bruce Villanche: You’re name’s not Todd Newton – it’s Todd POO-ton!

[ Both laugh and walk off ]

Todd Newton: I don’t get it. Hey, here’s Ben Affleck, the Man of the Hour. [ Ben tries to rush by ] Ben, Ben, over here! It’s me, Todd Newton.

Ben Affleck: Yeah, I know, that’s why I was walkin’ faster.

Todd Newton: [ laughs ] Terrific! Hey, tell me, there’s something I always wanted to know – What’s it like having people like you?

Ben Affleck: Uh.. it’s good I guess.

Todd Newton: [ laughs ] I knew it! [ looking around as Ben walks off ] Hey, look, there’s Mango! Mango, over here! Mango! It’s E!, Todd Newton!

Mango: [ strutting excitedly ] Ohhh, hi, E!Hello!

Todd Newton: Mango, you look great. Who are you weating?

Mango: Oh, this is my own design.. this only took me a couple of hours.. This is Wang. Vera Wang!

Todd Newton: [ laughing ] Alright. Classic!

Mango: Hey, have you seen the Matt Damon man? I’m looking for him.

Todd Newton: No. But why don’t you ask his buddy, Ben Affleck? Ben! Over here, buddy!

[ Ben walks over ]

Mango: Oh, hi! How are you? So, you know the Matt Damon man?

Ben Affleck: Uh, yeah, I know him. We did a couple movies together.

Mango: Oh, yeah, I know! The “Good Will Hunter” brothers, I remember!

Ben Affleck: No, it was called “Good Will Hunting”..

Mango: Yeah, whatever. Do me favor, when you see the Matt Damon man, tell him I’m looking for him.

Ben Affleck: [ relunctant ] What’s your name?

Mango: [ moving closer for a whisper ] Mango.

[ Mango’s soundtrack, “Missing” by Everything But the Girl, surrounds the air, as he innocently seduces Ben and disappears, leaving Ben in a daze ]

Todd Newton: You alright, Ben? Ben, you alright?

Ben Affleck: [ sidetracked ] Man-go!

[ cut to Mango in an aerobics class, as his cell phone rings ]

Mango: Sweet Mother of Crap! I thought I turned this mofo off! Hello? Leo DiCaprio?! I thought I told you never to call me? Okay? Bye! [ phone rings again ] Yes? Hi, Haley Joel Osment. I told you you’re too young for me. Okay? Bye! [ phone rings again ] Hello? Yes?

[ split-screen of Ben and Mango ]

Ben Affleck: Mango, it’s me, Ben Affleck.

Mango: Ben who-fleck? What? Who is this?

Ben Affleck: I mean.. [ disguising his voice ] Hey.. it’s me, Matt Damon!

Mango: Oh! Matt Damon! Hi!

Ben Affleck: Listen.. I’ve gotta see you, man! Come to my apartment at 8 o’clock, I’ll send a driver to pick you up. See you then! [ hangs up, as screen shifts to Ben’s apartment ] Oh, this is so awesome, I can’t believe it! [ walks up to a wall mirror, puts on a Matt Damon wig, glasses and teeth ] I’m Matt Damon!

[ cut to later that night. Ben’s apartment is dark, as the doorbell rings. ]

Ben Affleck: Come in!

Mango: [ entering ] Hello?

Ben Affleck: Mango, come in.

Mango: Thank you. Why is it so dark in here?

Ben Affleck: Uh, I have a pimple. [ changing subject ] Why don’t you stand over by the light?

Mango: [ complying, looks for a comfortable pose ] Should I do this? [ changes position ] Or maybe do that? [ giggles ] I’m a little nervous..!

Ben Affleck: Hey, man.. why don’t you try stripping for me?

Mango: [ surprised ] Alright.

[ Ben turns the stero on by remote, as Mango nervously dances around the room. Driven to arousal, Ben jumps onto Mango and knocks him to the floor ]

Ben Affleck: I can’t take it! I’ve gotta have my Mango pie, you little bitch! [ starts spanking Mango ]

Mango: [ struggling to get loose ] No! Call the 911!

Ben Affleck: Don’t fight it.

Mango: [ escapes from Ben’s grip and jumps to his feet ] Why does this keep happening to me? Why does everybody think I’m gay? I just came over to get an autograph for my son! His school happens to be having a charity auction, Mr. Matt Damon man!

Ben Affleck: [ giving up ] Ah.. call me Ben.

Mango: [ outraged ] Ben who-fleck?! What?! Who?! What?! What is this now?!

Ben Affleck: [ falling to his knees ] I’m sorry, Mango! I just never felt like this before! Even though I’m not really funny, just the thought of makes me feel so young! You’re everything, you complete me! Oh Mango! [ cries ]

Mango: Shhh, okay, come on.. it’s alright.

Ben Affleck: I.. I.. I did good in “Armageddon”, I wrecked the asteroid!

Mango: Yeah, I know, I didn’t see it, so.. [ singing staticly ] Hush there, little baby, don’t say a word.. Manog gonna buy this mockingbird.. And if that mockingbird don’t sing.. Mango gonna buy.. the diamond ring.” And inside that diamond ring, there’ll be a description.. that say.. “You can’t have-a the Mango!” [ stands up and slaps himself in the butt, then leaves ]

Ben Affleck: [ distraught, throws his hands in the air ] MANGO-O-O-O!!
