Onto today's joint from LITTLE GIRL BLUE, where we're racing to the exciting conclusion of our story ...
When we last left private eye Carrie Love, she and her family and friends had successfully fought off a home invasion on Christmas Eve in her mother's house in Beverly Hills during a freak snow storm. They've escaped through underground tunnels, and are now fighting back with blood, bullets ... and family ties ...
INT. BASEMENT - SECRET ROOM - NIGHT
Tolly faces Margo, Eva and Layla. Points his gun at them.
Watches Margo sleeping peacefully. The IV drip.
What’s wrong with the old broad?
Carrie’s mother had a stroke.
Please don’t hurt her.
That’s her MOTHER?
I’ve died and gone to HEAVEN.
Best hostage I ever had.
PUSH IN ON Margo.
One eye opens a tiny bit. Then closes.
EXT. POOL HOUSE - AT THAT MOMENT
It’s stopped snowing. All is quiet.
Bernie races toward the pool house.
Seth and Blue come outside. See him.
They run toward each other.
And my mom and Eva?
They’ve been captured.
But Carrie’s on her way to save them.
Don’t worry, they’ll be okay.
You don’t know Carrie.
If you saw the look on her face --
(motions to the pool house)
C’mon, let’s go inside.
I have a feeling we’re about to expect company.
GERO AND MAD DOG
Appear at the end of the property. See them.
You there! Stay where you are or we’ll SHOOT.
BERNIE, SETH AND BLUE
Hear him. Look.
And they DASH into the pool house.
INT. POOL HOUSE - CONTINUOUS
Blue and Seth RACE in, followed by Bernie.
He SLAMS the door. Locks it.
Pulls out his gun. Seth holds up his rifle.
You cover the door. I’ll check the windows.
But I don’t have a gun.
Bernie reaches into his boot.
Pulls out a small 22 caliber.
Now you do.
INT. BASEMENT - SECRET ROOM - AT THAT MOMENT
Carrie stands in the tunnel entrance. Looks at Tolly.
His semi-automatic weapon aimed at her mother. Eva. Layla.
Detective Love. I’m so glad you could join us.
The pleasure’s all yours, asshole.
Now is that any way to greet someone on Christmas?
Ho fucking ho, fuck-face.
(pulls out her gun)
You touch one hair on my mother’s head,
and you’re getting a lump of coal up your ass.
Tolly walks over to Layla.
Places the gun against her head.
No, PLEASE. Please don’t SHOOT ME.
Drop the rod, or I blow Selma Hayek’s brains out.
You blow her head off, I blow off yours.
Tolly WHIPS another gun out of his pocket.
Aims it at Carrie.
Forgot to mention I’m ambidextrous.
Drop it, hot stuff -- NOW.
Carrie drops her gun. It CLATTERS to the floor.
Tolly SHOOTS Layla in the head. BANG.
Blood SPRAYS. She HITS the floor.
Now kick the fucking gun OVER HERE.
Carrie KICKS the gun across the floor.
Tolly watches it SPIN.
In a flash, she KICKS him in the crotch, OOF.
He doubles over in pain.
He FIRES his gun. BANG. Misses her.
Eva SCREAMS again.
Margo opens her eyes, and deftly JAMS her stun gun in Tolly’s side.
BZZZZZZZZZZ! 300 watts of electricity ROAR through his body.
He dances like a marionette.
Carrie SOCKS him in the jaw with a hard left. CRACK.
He HITS the floor, THWUNK. Out cold.
Everyone stares at Tolly. Then Layla.
Oh my god. That -- poor girl.
I’ve never seen someone -- shot before.
Carrie picks up her gun. Puts it in her waistband.
Gets Tolly’s. Hands one to Eva. The other to Margo.
What are we supposed to do with these?
(gets his walkie)
I’ve got to go see if Blue is okay.
You two keep him covered.
If he does ANYTHING, don’t hesitate to shoot.
(hands it her)
Call Bernie on this if anything happens.
He has another one.
Why don’t we just shoot the bastard now?
It’s against the law.
(takes a breath)
Okay. I gotta go.
Be careful, Carrie.
I always am.
She goes to the tunnel. Stops. Turns.
I love you, mom.
PUSH IN ON Margo. In shock.
I -- love you, too.
