sounds good dude. as for the story, I'm going to tell it like it is in a similar order but I will have it flash forward time to time to the restaurant scene after everyone agrees on the move in deal. it will jump from the dinner scene back to each character and how they end up at the house and then once the story reaches the dinner scene it will be in the present tense and continue on as planned. figured it would be a good way to introduce each person and then let the central conflict begin once everyone gets back to the house.

anyways, here's the opening scenes first draft. hope you like it.

FROM THE BLACK WE HEAR -- 

VINNY (V.O.)
I put myself in your shoes often and don't blame ya for feeling the way you do. I know, my boss just kinda canned me last minute since I was supposed to open on Saturday.

JUSTINE (V.O.)
Please don't be mad.

VINNY (V.O.)
If something you did bothered me I'd tell you, straight up. Trust me.

JUSTINE (V.O.)
Good to know.

VINNY (V.O.)
And not in a pretentious dickhead way either. I'd be civil about it.

FADE IN:
INT. VINNYS APARTMENT - NIGHT

VINNY aka YOUDIED is a brooding looking 28 year old with an ornery tone making him seem tempered and defensive. He has a look of defeat on his face but his eyes look like he is staring into hell-fire. It's difficult to tell if he's really empathetic or furious. 

JUSTINE is 27 years old and is Vinnys girlfriend. She has a very welcoming and pleasant look about her that seemingly inspires brightness to her surroundings. She has a stern look of impatience and anxiety.  

They are siting across one another at a dining room table.

VINNY
It seems like you live here but I don't exist to you sometimes. Unless when it's time to pay bills.

JUSTINE
That's really the only time?

VINNY
It's always one of those damned if you do, damned if you don't situations for me. 

JUSTINE
Is it always? You make me nervous.

VINNY
Why? When we went into the garage and had a smoke I was like okay, dude, chill. The situations fine.

JUSTINE
I was panicking at that time!

VINNY
Well you hid it well!

JUSTINE
You were freaking out.

VINNY
Yes, I was freaking out.

JUSTINE
You have zero stability, you're always broke, now you lost your job. When you're unpredictable like that... It's the worst!

VINNY
I need your help, not gonna lie.

JUSTINE
Sometimes you're annoying and sometimes I just want you to be loved.

VINNY
I'm more fond of the second part.

JUSTINE
I just don't want to sound like a hypocrite by bitching--

VINNY
It's not an overnight fix, obviously.

JUSTINE
This is serious.

VINNY
Okay, I'm trying to do my best.

JUSTINE
Are you really?

VINNY
Despite you being pretty fucking clear and precise on my shortcomings, yes.

JUSTINE
I don't know how much more I can take before I start flipping my shit. I don't really have a barrier anymore. Things are going bad quickly.

VINNY
You're not thinking clearly.

JUSTINE
Oh?

VINNY
I'm pretty confident with myself here but still, how am I supposed to react to that? It's impossible not to think about.

JUSTINE
Think clearly about this... how are you going to make rent?

VINNY
I'll figure it out.

JUSTINE
Did you really have to cause a scene at work?

VINNY
Can we just talk about something else?

JUSTINE
It just pisses me off because of all that big deal you made over getting the job. Then you just throw any shred of responsibility away and get fired and now I have to fix it.
(Getting frustrated)
And then I come home, worried, and I see you on the couch getting high instead of looking for a new job.

VINNY
Really should be looking for work, yeah. I'm just vulnerable here, it sucks. I really do need you to help me.

JUSTINE
Help you?

VINNY
I'm just trying to level with you since you're kind of a big deal to me!

JUSTINE
Is that so?

VINNY
Yeah!

JUSTINE
I think I might go a different direction here. Something doesn't feel right.

VINNY
I'm all worried mode now.

JUSTINE
I think I am though. You make me feel like someone punched me and knocked the wind out of me.

VINNY has a concerned look on his face.

VINNY
That's messed up!

JUSTINE
I hate it.

VINNY
I do really want to be with you and make sure you're comfortable with the situation but I do understand the circumstance.

JUSTINE
This is what I was talking about though. About introducing more problems to me over and over again.

VINNY
It's just bad timing.

JUSTINE
Yeah I would agree.

VINNY
I get it, you have to carry the burden and it's like, expected. Really now. That's funny, since all it takes is one interview and things will be different but no. I'm the bad guy all of a sudden.

JUSTINE
That makes no sense.

VINNY
Look at the situation, like seriously. You make it seem like you've been fucked since the day you moved in with me.

JUSTINE
You are so inconsiderate sometimes.

VINNY
That's not what I was getting at but at the same time I pretty much have tunnel vision on us and us alone. Before you I literally gave up on trying, seriously. You give me a sense of hope.

JUSTINE
Vinny, I just don't know if I'm ready to keep going in our relationship anymore.

VINNY
Justine...

JUSTINE
Clearly you don't give a fuck about anything. Keeping things clean, the bills, or care if you go broke!

VINNY
I know, I kinda see it all from your point of view and it's frustrating as shit.

JUSTINE
Well I appreciate that.

VINNY
I'm sorry Justine, I really am.

JUSTINE
It's too late for that.

VINNY
I'm not ignoring the issue but I want us to have peace of mind again.

JUSTINE
Really?

VINNY
It's not the end of the world. All the little things are starting to add up and now it's making us agitated.

JUSTINE
Thank you for being understanding.

VINNY
So, still want to continue all this tonight or want to hold off until tomorrow?

JUSTINE
So basically you just told me to fuck off and you don't care?

VINNY
I'm trying to cheer you up.

JUSTINE
(beat)
I'm kidding. To be honest this only makes me mad cause you can't admit that you're--

VINNY
With that being said, if you want to meet up tomorrow for lunch and talk about it just let me know. I'll be around. I don't want everything turning into ground zero. It'll get better. I love you.

JUSTINE
(delighted)
You do?

VINNY
You're my girlfriend...

JUSTINE
Not anymore. You can be such a fucking idiot.

VINNY
Oh, I'm inconsiderate!?

JUSTINE
It's not like I'm leaving you for no reason...

VINNY
You have issues...

JUSTINE
It's just not the same anymore...

VINNY
This is going to ruin me you know?

JUSTINE
Well it's good that we end it now before we end up hating each other.

VINNY
This is upsetting.

JUSTINE
I knew you were going to be mad.

VINNY
Justine, we've both had our names drawn with a stick in the mud in the past but this is now. This isn't going to help either of us. 

JUSTINE
The problem is you just don't get it. It's over. I'm leaving.

VINNY
Don't--

JUSTINE
I'm staying at my sisters place.

VINNY
This is really happening...

JUSTINE
Yes, it is.

VINNY
I'll make it up to you, you don't need to move into your sisters place.

JUSTINE
I need to start packing.

VINNY
Justine--

JUSTINE
What?

VINNY
Don't go. Please.

JUSTINE
Sorry I--

VINNY
Please.

JUSTINE
I need to pack.

VINNY
You don't need to pack, look, just stay here with me. We can work this all out.

JUSTINE
It's over.

VINNY
Quit saying that!

JUSTINE
You're not listening to me! I can't keep going through this with you. It drives me crazy! 

VINNY
The fact you haven't realized how bad this will be for the both of us makes me laugh and at the same time makes me furious. You're not thinking clearly. We have some problems we need to work out but now this? Moving in with you sister can't bail you out of our entire credit history being destroyed in the process. You're on the lease!

JUSTINE
I'm leaving, it's final.

VINNY
No, you're not!

JUSTINE
Stop it, leave me alone so I pack my things. Go sit and get high on the couch.

VINNY
Did you really just say that!?

JUSTINE glares at VINNY and gets up from her chair.

VINNY (CONT'D)
(calmly)
I need you here with me, please.

JUSTINE
I'm sorry it came to this... You have to figure this out on your own.

VINNY
I'm sorry I couldn't change your mind. 

JUSTINE
No reason to be sorry.

VINNY
Thanks for the clarification.

JUSTINE
This isn't going to be easy for me either you know.

VINNY
Right, well for me, I think you just put the final nail in my coffin, so to speak. I can't handle this. I--

JUSTINE walks over to VINNY, he gets up from his chair and hugs her tenderly.

JUSTINE
(close)
One day you'll come home and all of a sudden this will make sense to you. You'll realize you can't afford to be so careless. You'll realize you can't half-ass your way through life. You need to take a good long look inward and figure yourself out.

JUSTINE breaks the hug and pushes off of VINNY, storming off hurriedly. VINNY is devastated.

Gloomy music starts playing through the following sequence. VINNY opens his fridge and sighs as he grabs a beer and exits the kitchen. We follow him throughout the apartment and into his bedroom. JUSTINE is in the background packing her belongings. 

VINNY opens his laptop and starts typing. He opens up a website on his browser and it appears on screen.

pf.com (obviously I'll change the name later)

This is his safe haven. He creates a thread in the forum and starts typing.

Re: pf - the movie

Post by youdiedtooeasily » Sun Feb 08, 2015 01:26

it'll be a while until I get to you Smith, but don't worry you pretty much run the show during the second half. got the whole screenplay mapped out in how I want to introduce everyone. just gotta type it out! here is some more from where I left off.

VINNY (V.O.)
I don't really have any regrets. Things happened for a reason. At the time I thought I was making the best decision and that's what I did. I'm fine with that. The what if thing though, I think about that all the time.

VINNY takes a swig of his drink. We see the words we're hearing appear typing on the screen--

VINNY (V.O.) (CONT'D)
Now I feel like I'm doomed. I'd rather not think about but I need to vent this out. I keep having this dream of the apocalypse. I was lost in a city, it looked run down and the sky was read. It made me feel concerned.

CUT TO:
INT. VINNY'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

VINNY (V.O.)
I am in complete absence of peace and have never been more anxious in my entire life. I have become a negative person and will always be thinking about the worse case scenario. No regrets but the what if question, it consumes me. Is it the same thing?

VINNY carries his laptop to the living room and seats himself at his couch. He finishes his beer and throws the empty can on the ground. JUSTINE appears into the living room and shakes her head. She continues packing.

VINNY looks at a coffee table and sees his pipe and lighter.

VINNY sets his laptop aside and lights up his pipe, blowing out a large cloud of smoke. He closes his eyes and takes in a moment of silence then picks up his laptop and resumes typing. 

VINNY (V.O.) (CONT'D)
I've had this state of disbelief haunting me deep inside my mind. It's odd how these things happen, isn't it? I constantly feel like I'm not good enough, like I should be so much better at everything. Where does it come from? I feel so alone. I've been tossed around like a piece of trash my whole life so maybe that's why I feel this way? It's an odd reasoning but hey, at least here I have something. 

CUT TO: 
INT. A CAR - NIGHT

The car looks like it's been through a shootout and has all tinted windows. On board are two THUGS dressed in all black outfits. They are smoking cigarettes glancing over to the back seat periodically. 

VINNY (V.O.)
Maybe I'm being delusional but something tells me I really fucked up this time.

CUT BACK TO:
INT. VINNY's LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

VINNY continues typing with a new beer set on the coffee table.

VINNY (V.O.)
I mean yeah, we've all messed up at some point in our lives, right? I consider you guys my friends. We've known each other for years. It's the only positive consistency I've had in my life. Hence the burning what if question--

CUT TO: 
EXT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

A bodyguard--in a black outfit and armed with a pistol--is standing in front of the warehouse entrance. Something underground and exclusive is going on inside.  The car pulls up in front of the entrance and the thugs exit the vehicle. One thug starts walking toward the bodyguard as the other goes to open the back door of the car.

VINNY (V.O.)
--well I for one could use a  pleasant fresh start. That like never happens. My girl just left me and getting back together, yeah. I'm not gonna hold my breath. I'm tired of being alone. I find it interesting that after all these years we still frequent this forum. Our clubhouse. Our home. When I get upset or confused or angry I come here first because talking to you guys keeps me grounded. Sounds weird but it's the only place I can feel real. And free.

CUT BACK TO:
INT. VINNY'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

VINNY continues typing as two more beers have joined the coffee table.

VINNY (V.O.)
If you guys must know I don't have any more willingness to care in life. I'd rather just curl into a ball and let this life pass me by. It's like I'm playing some sort of pathetic game. But, at the same time, imagining hanging out and having a drink with all of you guys sounds like perfection to me. There I go again, saying irrational shit, but fuck it. I'm being for real. No regrets this time.

On the computer screen we see VINNY's screen-name on the forum as YOUDIED.

CUT TO:
EXT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

THUG ONE is talking to the BODYGUARD. The BODYGUARD looks over to THUG TWO. They give each other a nod and THUG TWO opens the back seat of the car. 

SALADIN, an intellectual looking 26 year old dressed in a leather jacket and jeans, exits the vehicle. He has a look of concern on his face as he looks over to the BODYGUARD'S pistol.

The BODYGUARD signals him to cover over. SALADIN slowly walks forward towards the entrance--

BODYGUARD
Alright kid, you know the drill. You were never here--you never saw us. As far as you can recall you were out dancing downtown or something--is that understood?

CUT BACK TO: 
INT. VINNY'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

VINNY lights up his pipe again and blows out another cloud of smoke. He resumes typing.

VINNY (V.O.)
With that being said, I'm laying all the cards on the table here and whether you like it or not this forum has changed us. Okay, maybe that makes no fuckin sense but it does once you've been through so much defeat in your life I suppose. We are more than anonymous profiles talking on a website. Even if no one in our surroundings gives a damn about you I do. I say why mask it, let's meet up for real this time. Now or never I suppose.

We see the words we are hearing being typed on VINNY'S screen quickly. VINNY is fully focused on his forum posting. 

CUT TO:
INT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

The underground warehouse is full of patrons looking as if they would mug you in broad daylight. We see a shot of two POKER PLAYERS arguing at a poker table, a DEALER is counting dollar bills, and a dozen other thugs dressed in all black outfits surrounding the poker table. 

CUT BACK TO:
INT. VINNY'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

VINNY (V.O.)
Well not to sound selfish as shit, I want you guys to look at this from my perspective. I am at the end of wits here and just want to reinforce the fact the even if we feel like we have no meaning, together, we can become something. Life isn't fair, plain and simple, not trying to be a dick about it either.

INT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

Game time. SALADIN is escorted over to the poker table. The DEALER sets the bills down and pulls a chair out for him to join in on the game. The two POKER PLAYERS stare SALADIN down as he hands the DEALER a stack of dollar bills and takes his seat at the table.

VINNY (V.O.) (CONT'D)
I look back and maybe it's karma. I used to be a shitty person back in the day. Hung around the wrong crowd sort of a deal. Used to steal shit for sport, it was bad. Never got caught though. How about you guys? What secrets do you have? I have a feeling my life isn't going to end well. I felt like I threw it all away but when I log in here, it's my panic room. I'm sure you can all relate to that at least.

CUT TO:
INT. VINNY'S BEDROOM - NIGHT

VINNY moved from the couch back to his desk in his bedroom and continues typing with a purpose--

VINNY (V.O.)
The whole having to come to realization that we're all winging it here in life is a tricky concept to grasp. Like we all know nothing, let's face it. But yeah, realistically I'm going all out on a whim here. I'm almost getting too dinosaur aged to start a family and statistically if I do play the field again I will end up with someone with divorce in progress written all over them. That's how it is these days. It sucks but it is what it is. Society is fucked. Oh well right? I'm on board being someone else and I think the members of this forum are the only people I can adjust to and get my livelihood back on track--

INT. QUACKS' APARTMENT - NIGHT

QUACK, a sweet-looking 24 year old Canadian wearing a black sweater and jeans barges into his apartment door with a look of disbelief on his face.

VINNY (V.O.)
This is going to sound awkward, but you're all I have left. 

QUACK goes over to his desk and opens his laptop, we see his screen as he logs into the forum under the screen-name QUACK--

haha yeah, I'm taking Saladin's back story down a darker road than intended but the end result will cause him to give up on his life and he goes to pf afterwards.

and cool, glad I captured the essence of Quack. I've been reading through a lot of your posts to see how you guys talk so I'm building that into your dialogue, takes a while though so I have to work on it in small doses otherwise I get overwhelmed. writing myself is easy, I know how I talk and think. getting into your heads is harder than expected.

I know what I want to do I just need to sit down and type but I'm gathering some things here and there to make it make more sense as far as a film would go. and yeah, I hear ya, no one can deny pf was a big part of us growing up!

have a pretty busy week coming up but next weekend all I'm doing is working on the script.

here's a little update. kinda at a block for how I'm going to introduce Frohman but I'll think of something clever. it feels so weird typing it out at times but it is nice to entertain the thought I suppose.

VINNY (V.O.)
Does anyone else feel this way?

QUACK picks up a photograph and glances at it as he tears it in half, he throws the photo to the side and starts typing on his laptop--

INT. VINNY'S BEDROOM - NIGHT

JUSTINE
What are you doing?

VINNY
Just venting my current struggles out. Justine you're killing me here. 

JUSTINE
Vinny--

VINNY
Justine--

JUSTINE
Break ups are hard. I get it.

VINNY
Really, so you do have a soul in there.

JUSTINE
Yeah, why don't you write that into your little blog or whatever.

VINNY
On it.

JUSTINE
Are you going to be okay?

VINNY
What do you think.

JUSTINE
I have to go.

VINNY
Alright, seems like we had a good thing going and you derailed it. I get it, I'm nothing and you're moving on.

JUSTINE
So you're not going to be okay.

VINNY
What goes through your head? Just wondering.

JUSTINE
Vinny--

VINNY
I want to know. I really don't understand how you make these decisions.

CUT TO: 
INT. QUACKS' APARTMENT - NIGHT

QUACK is typing on the forum board. He pauses a moment and opens up a drawing program on his laptop screen. He draws a series of broken hearts on the screen and then he hears a knock at his door. 

QUACK goes to the door to answer it and invites his guest in. JOESMAR, a suave, nicely dressed 24 year old, hugs QUACK and they both take a seat in his living room.

QUACK
Since the break up I've been in a slump. I don't have motivation, I sleep in and arrive late to classes, I'm not eating healthy, I'm not exercising. I don't have motivation to improve myself at all. My enthusiasm for school has also really fucked off. I used to be excited about school but I just don't have the love for the work like I used to, and that's scary.

JOESMAR
I remember in the summer when you two started the relationship. I warned ya, you were taking it too fast then you guys got this place together. I'm sure it's rough living by yourself. I can tell you're mostly hating it right now. I've been pretty busy bud but I'll try to hang out more. It sucks to see you all depressed.

QUACK
(tapping his fingers together)
The only happiness I feel is when I hangout with friends or when I watch a really good movie I haven't seen before. I think eating healthier and exercising will help my mood overall. I'm right in downtown. There's a farmer's market really close, so my plan is to wake up tomorrow and buy fruits and veggies there and then go for a jog and do all my homework after. And then pester you all weekend Joesmar.

JOESMAR
I'm here for ya bud.

CUT TO:
INT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

The DEALER starts shuffling a deck of cards. The two POKER PLAYERS give SALADIN the death stare. SALADIN is poised as he stares at the cards being shuffled.

CUT BACK TO:
INT. QUACKS APARTMENT - NIGHT

QUACK makes his final keystrokes and finishes typing. We see a long response post as a reply to YOUDIEDs forum thread on the screen. He clicks on the submit button.

QUACK stares at the screen silently for a moment and joins JOESMAR back in the living room. 

JOESMAR
You should make a new plan for yourself.

QUACK folds his arms and hangs his head down. JOESMAR gets up from his seat and comforts QUACK.

JOESMAR (CONT'D)
Think of a new goal.

QUACK nods his head and they both go back and take their seats in the living room. 

JOESMAR (CONT'D)
Missed ya bud.

QUACK
I know.

JOESMAR
I know how it feels, been working a lot of nights now. It does get lonely.

QUACK
I'm starting to get to a fuck it point in my life.

JOESMAR
Hey now, don't say that!

QUACK lets out a long sigh and shakes his head.

QUACK
I want to walk around and pretend I still cherish the happier memories and remember all the good times with him. Then again I have a terrible poker face.

CUT TO:
INT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT
The room is starting to fill with smoke as the two POKER PLAYERS are smoking cigars. The DEALER deals out everyone's hand. As we move around the table we see all the other patrons leave the warehouse. The BODYGUARD locks the door behind them and waits patiently by the entrance indicating no backing out of this one.

SALADIN gets a glance at his hand. He looks delighted. He looks over at the two POKER PLAYERS and tries to read if they are bluffing. 

The DEALER waits patiently for them to check or call.

DEALER
(to the two POKER PLAYERS)
Gentlemen?

CUT TO:
INT. FROHMAN'S APARTMENT - NIGHT

We see FROHMAN, a pretentious 26 year old wearing a Halo video game shirt and jeans, sitting at his desk on his laptop logging into the forum under the screen-name FROHMAN.

In the background we see a GIRL leaning against a wall sobbing and his ROOMMATE piling his belongings into boxes in a very upset tone. 

ROOMMATE
Fuck you guys.
(to the GIRL)
You cheated on me with him!? 

GIRL
I still love you!

FROHMAN looks at her and shakes his head, he looks back at his laptop screen and begins typing--

GIRL (CONT'D)
It was only the one time!

FROHMAN slams his fist down on his desk. The other two have a startled look on their face. The ROOMMATE grins and finishes packing his boxes. FORHMAN looks back at him and gives him the finger. 

FROHMAN
Get the fuck out of here. 

The ROOMMATE scoffs and gives him a dirty look--

ROOMMATE
Have it your way. Oh, and you are no longer needed back at the office. I'm terming my half of the lease as well. 

FROHMAN
I'm screwed, thanks for the reminder. Get out of here. 

The ROOMMATE shakes his head and walks over to the GIRL, he pulls a promise ring off of his finger and throws it in her face. The girl starts bawling as he exits the apartment. FROHMAN is staring at the forum posting made by YOUDIED and is intrigued. 

FROHMAN
Did you really have to tell him?
(disappointed)
We both knew what we were getting into. I should have known you'd be trouble.

The GIRL throws her hands in the air and storms off angrily.

CUT TO:
INT. RANSOMS HOUSE - DAY

RANSOM, a peculiar and artistic looking 26 year old Australian dressed in a grey outfit, wakes up and opens his laptop. We see him log into the forum under the screen-name RANSOM. His eyes widen to all the activity on the forum board

RANSOM
(to himself)
How ironic!

CUT TO:
INT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

The two POKER PLAYERS look exhausted, mentally and monetarily, since SALADIN has a large collection of chips and they are dry. The DEALER deals out another hand of cards to the three players.

POKER PLAYER ONE
(to DEALER)
Seems rather unusual to see this mystery kid with that deep stack while we're sittin here busted.

DEALER
You're saying it's unusual to not win this time?

POKER PLAYER TWO
Yeah, I think it's more than unusual. Seems like we've got a cold deck here.

DEALER
Is that so?

The DEALER looks over to the BODYGUARD. The BODYGUARD vaguely nods his head. 

DEALER (CONT'D)
I didn't know fish could complain about anything.

SALADIN
I'm a grinder. What can I say?

DEALER
Quite, I've been impressed with your performance.

THE BODYGUARD advances towards the players, as he's walking he pulls out a silencer and starts tightening it around his pistol. The DEALER steps away from the poker table. 

Two quick silenced shots burst and both POKER PLAYERS are shot through the head, covering the poker table and SALADIN with blood. 

SALADIN is frozen stiff for a moment--

SALADIN
Please don't--

DEALER
Silence!

SALADIN
I swear I won't say a word! Please let me go! 

The BODYGUARD pulls SALADIN from his seat and stands him up. The DEALER and BODYGUARD walk back towards the entrance whispering. SALADIN, panicked, starts looking around the room for an exit.  

DEALER
(whispering)
Let's take the money and go. Leave the kid.

BODYGUARD
(whispering)
Sounds good to me. Hurry this up before the others get back. 

The DEALER and BODYGUARD walk back to SALADIN.

DEALER
Alright here's the deal. We'll take the money and you can walk out of here. Not a fuckin word to anyone, you understand!?

BODYGUARD
Now or never kid, move it. 

SALADIN
(bad)
Oh fuck.

We stay on SALADIN a moment before--

CUT TO:
INT. RESTAURANT - DAY
It's six months later and VINNY is sitting with QUACK, SALADIN, FROHMAN, and RANSOM at a large dining table. One seat is empty. VINNY is wearing a black and white tracksuit which he will wear throughout. His disposition has changed since the previous scenes. He still looks broken but it seems as if he has found the answers to his problems and he is at a state of control and calamity.

Another member of the forum, SMITH, a wealthy yet mysterious looking 29 year old in a three-piece suit, joins the rest of the gang at the table. We'll get to know him later. In the background other SERVERS and GUESTS are being served meals. SALADIN and RANSOM are writing down information on napkins and exchanging them. FROHMAN and QUACK showing each other videos on their smartphones. 

The restaurant is very upscale and exclusive. There are many abstract paintings on the wall and outside the windows we see palm trees and rolling hills. 

SMITH looks over to VINNY.

SMITH
I bet the normal ones like Salad are the most fucked up.

VINNY
I don't even know how it came to this.

SMITH
I can't believe Ransom is actually in on the idea. The reason we're all here was because of your post.

VINNY
Reminds me of Justine. We were really good together and I appreciated every moment we spent together but you know--I know at some point there will be conflict here--I'm just ready for it this time.

SMITH
Vinny, you don't--

VINNY
I believe we're doing the right thing.

SMITH
Living life to the fullest. I just worry--

VINNY
I never was able to deal with breakups well. The lonely nights is what gets me sometimes.

SMITH
Let's get through this weekend and see where things go--

VINNY
I can't believe we're all actually moving in to your house. It's crazy to think--

SMITH
Vinny--

VINNY
--that it just might work.

SMITH
Look I understand I've been a handful and I'm sorry about that. The divorce really sent me over. And since then I've come to understand that it's just not worth it to be so unhappy all the time. We can all change, you know? You should go outside for a minute. Have a smoke, relax.

VINNY
We picked up right where we left off in a sense.

SMITH
We can all support each other now.

VINNY
It's a pretty nice concept. On that note I think I'll step outside for a minute. 

VINNY excuses himself from the dining table and exits the restaurant. SMITH looks over to one of the paintings on the wall resembling a blood splatter. 

SMITH looks away from the painting and to the other members at the table. SMITH raises his glass to get their attention. 

SMITH
As you all know this meal will be covered at no expense to you. Your airfare and moving costs will be covered as well. Why? Because I'm awesome.

QUACK
Can't wait!

RANSOM
Excellent.

SALADIN
Sounds good to me.

FROHMAN
Nice.

now just gotta finish Saladins and Frohmans intros and then it will be set from there I think. maybe one more flash forward, I'm debating on it.

I really should come back and work on this more at some point. I got trapped in a narrative sense but after re-reading this I think I can figure out how to get it back on track. I'll think about it.
