 EXT. CHEZ PIERRE IN VAN

 

               In van village. Eddie slouched back on his chair eyeing up

               Jane who is glued to the monitor. Charlie sits behind her

               comparing his belly and muscles to Patrick's.

 

                                   EDDIE

                         They do make low fat milk dude.

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         Guys here really like, really work

                         out. Back home people ate food and

                         stuff.

 

                                   EDDIE

                         You do have the cultural

                         disadvantage. It's never too late

                         though, but I'm sure Lily loves you

                         anyway, for your freckles.

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         Shut up.

                             (beat)

                         She does?

 

               Dolly climbs into van.

 

                                   EDDIE

                         Ask her on a date. I don't think

                         she is seeing anyone and she is

                         always on her phone so she must be

                         looking.

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         Okay..?

 

                                   DOLLY

                         Oh yes, you should darling, she's a

                         sweetheart. You deserve a lovely

                         girl.

 

                                   JANE

                         Okay, great Dolly.

 

               We see the couple chat on the monitor. They seem nervy. Then

               Patrick takes off his glasses, grab Carrie and kiss her.

 

               Crew sits up.

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         What was that?

 

                                   DOLLY

                         Did he just kiss her?

 

                                   EDDIE

                         Good for him.

 

                                   JANE

                         Why... Turn up sound.

 

               On the monitor we see Patrick and Carrie stare at each other.

 

                                   PATRICK

                         Bit more?

 

               He pours wine.

 

                                   CARRIE

                         Thanks.

 

                                   PATRICK

                         What would you like to eat?

 

                                   CARRIE

                         Not hungry. Nervous you see.

 

                                   PATRICK

                         Yeah, I didn't sleep much. I had a

                         premonition this would be good.

 

                                   CARRIE

                         So, what are you looking for in a

                         wife?

 

                                   PATRICK

                         Someone who comes along for the

                         ride.

 

               Carrie takes a sip and doesn't take her eyes of him.

 

                                   PATRICK (CONT'D)

                         And you?

 

                                   CARRIE

                         I'm looking for a man who can keep

                         me spellbound

 

                                   PATRICK

                         We won't be bored then.

 

                                   CARRIE

                         Guess not.

 

               Jane stands up.

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         They're like, totally actors. It

                         looks like it is set up!

 

               Jane is holding on to the back of the chair like she's on a

               dingy riding a hurricane. DOLLY is looking at her concerned.

 

                                   DOLLY

                         But, I thought the cast...

 

                                   Eddie

                         Of course it's real guys, they are

                         just happy to see each other.

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         How do you know dude! Earl is

                         setting them up like, on purpose,

                         like, he is weird anyway...

 

                                   DOLLY

                         He is like a psychic, he is

                         sensitive, smart and intuitive and

                         reads peoples emotions like my

                         grandmother used to do, bless her

                         soul. It's a gift.

 

               Eddie raises and eyebrow at her. DOLLY checks her nails.

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         This is great tv.

 

                                   DOLLY

                             (to Eddie)

                         And they look at peoples mental

                         health history..

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         What?

 

               Charlie wants to ask more but we see on the monitors how

               Patrick grabs her hand.

 

                                   PATRICK

                         You like to ride?

 

                                   CARRIE

                         Always.

 

               They get up to leave.

 

                                   JANE

                         Cut to drones! Now!

 

               Jane runs out. Eddie quickly switches to their nano drone

               cameras.

 

               When they leave the restaurant they ignore the van.

 

               DOLLY jumps out and quickly marches up towards them on her

               heels. Jane is closely behind her staring at the couple

               walking past, she is breathing heavily.

 

                                   JANE (CONT'D)

                         Quickly, catch them.

 

                                   DOLLY

                         Hi, you don't waste your time, do

                         you! I'm so glad to see you two are

                         hitting it off. Going anywhere

                         special?

 

               They feel interrupted and continue walking.

 

                                   PATRICK

                         Just going for a drive.

 

                                   CARRIE

                         Yeah, thank you.

 

                                   DOLLY

                         Great well, have fun and I am

                         looking forward to catching up in 2

                         days time in our studio.

 

               Camera man zooms.

 

                                   DOLLY (CONT'D)

                         Well, aren't they in a hurry! Thank

                         you everyone for watching and keep

                         following our new couple online on

                         our livestream. And I hope you will

                         join us for our live show tomorrow

                         where we will catch up with them.

                         Bye for now.

 

                                                                CUT TO:

 

 

 

               EXT. CHEZ PIERRE OUTSIDE IN VAN

 

               Crew watching the couple on the monitors.

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         Wow. Good one.

 

                                   Eddie

                         Okay guys, they are live.

 

               MONITOR: Carrie is stroking his leg and looking at him while

               he's driving, her eyes finally got some life in them. They

               don't speak much. Patrick glances at her and smiles.

               They leave town and drive fast along the coast. They look

               like they'll be driving for hours.

 

               Crew packing up, apart from Jane who is watching the monitor.

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         They are so going to be a hit. They

                         are like the perfect couple.

                         Mysterious, he's really fit, she is

                         like ...

 

                                   DOLLY

                         They remind me of myself and my

                         second husband. Crazy times, like

                         someone cast a spell on me, I felt.

                         All ended in tears of course. He's

                         dead now, got attacked by an

                         alligator, bless his soul, it

                         didn't even eat him... Don't look

                         at me like that, I didn't kill him!

 

               She laughs and looks at Jane to see if she heard her. Jane

               doesn't react.

 

                                   EDDIE

                         I don't know where we would be

                         without living vicariously through

                         you, Dolly.

 

                                   DOLLY

                         Oh, I'm here for you sweetheart.

 

                                   JANE

                             (sighs)

                         Okay, everyone. Let's pack up.

 

                                   CHARLIE

                         Don't you think Jane? They are

                         like, really glamorous. That's

                         awesome right?

 

                                   JANE

                         Yes.

 

               She pulls herself away from the screen.
