Onto today's joint from LITTLE GIRL BLUE, where the action gets kicked up a notch ...
When we last left private eye Carrie Love, she, along with ex-partner homicide detective Bernie Keko, are protecting would-be stripper/college coed Blue Wonder from a pack of goons who are trying to invade her mother's house on Christmas Eve ... and the siege has begun, when a pair of thugs break into the house ... in Carrie's room ...
EXT. BEVERLY HILLS MANSION - BACK YARD - NIGHT
A ladder rests against the side of the house.
Reaches up to a second story window.
Tolly and Porkpie stand next to it, looking up.
Mick holds a PICK-AXE. Aldo, an oil lamp.
(to Mick and Aldo)
You go climb up, smash a window.
Go in. We’ll follow you.
Let’s do it.
Yeah. Get inside and warm up.
Then get us some girlie.
There’s been a change of plan.
We’re gonna whack both of ‘em.
Both of ‘em? The stripper, too?
What, you got snow in your ears?
What about the other people in the house?
What do you think.
Good thing I brought a couple extra clips.
INT. MANSION - STUDY - AT THAT MOMENT
Seth paces back and forth in front of the fireplace.
Practices clicking the safety on and off.
Blue sits on the couch. Holds the rifle on her lap.
Margo sleeps peacefully. Layla stands near the door.
I need to use the ladies room.
Go down the hall to the foyer.
Second door on your right.
Thanks. I’ll be right back.
She tiptoes out.
Your mother’s -- a character.
You can say that again.
He looks at her.
Comes over to the couch.
Sits next to her.
Guess it runs in the family.
You mean my sister.
Yeah. But she’s cool.
She’s helping me even though I can’t afford it.
She and my Mom have a -- tricky relationship.
Blue puts the gun down next to her.
Scoots a little closer.
You know what they say about mothers and daughters.
(touches her arm)
Kind of like -- like father, like son?
(touches his leg)
We shouldn’t be doing this.
Not at a time like this.
And they kiss.
INT. MANSION - SECOND FLOOR HALLWAY - AT THAT MOMENT
Carrie, Bernie and Eva walk down the lushly furnished main hallway upstairs.
Guns at their sides.
Looks just the same.
(turns, to Carrie)
You remember that Thanksgiving weekend we stayed here,
and your mother made us sleep in separate rooms?
Well, we weren’t married yet.
And you know my mom.
I had to fucking sneak in your room like I was sixteen.
They both smile. Remembering.
Why couldn’t the two of you work it out?
It seems like there is still chemistry.
I had an itch -- and I scratched it.
An itch? That’s a good one.
'The Days of Wine and Roses -- '
Gives Bernie a look that kills.
I think we should split up.
Check all the windows. They could be --
Glass SHATTERS. A big THUD.
CRASHING noises behind the door they’re standing in front of.
Oh my GOD.
And they’re in MY ROOM.
