That Fucking Bitch Is So Close I Can Smell Her

Happy Thurdsay, crime fighters. Are you ready for another trip to the dark side? Ready for a swift kick in the balls? Then it's time once again to head on out to the hippest harboiled joint in cyberspace, where the action is steamin' ... at That Killing Feeling.

Onto today's steaming slab of action, courtesy of LITTLE GIRL BLUE ...

Where private eye Carrie Love is defending her family and friends against a home invasion on Christmas Eve in Beverly Hills during a freak snowstorm ... and so far, they've been successful at keeping out Tolly Chill and his goons ... when, just in the knick of time, Tolly's father arrives ...

INT. BEVERLY HILLS MANSION - MASTER BEDROOM - NIGHT
Tolly and Porkpie huddle.

TOLLY
You check the rest of the rooms on this floor.
I’ll go downstairs.
That fucking bitch is so close I can smell her.

PORKPIE
Okay.
(beat)
Really? You can smell her?

TOLLY
It’s an expression, you idiot.
C’mon, move it.

They start for the door.

IN THE STUDY
Seth, Blue, Eva and Layla watch Margo sleep.

LAYLA
It’s working.

EVA
You can thank the Polytechnic Institute of Berlin.

BLUE
(to Seth)
What do you think’s going on upstairs?

SETH
I don’t know.

Margo opens her eyes.
Looks dazed. A weak smile.

MARGO
Well, isn’t this a lovely reunion.

BLUE
Mom. How do you feel?

MARGO
Just -- fabulous.
For some reason I feel like --
listening to the Grateful Dead.
(looks at Eva)
Eva. How wonderful to see you.
You’re looking lovely as usual.

Everyone exchanges glances.

EVA
Sometimes the combination of medications
can strip away the patient’s inhibitions.

A soft THUMP outside the door.

SETH
What was that?

He walks over to the door.
Puts his ear against it. Listens.

SETH (CONT'D)
Someone’s out there.

EXT. HOLLYWOOD HILLS MANSION - FRONT DRIVE - AT THAT MOMENT
Gero and TWO GOONS stand in the driveway.
His LIMO pulls up in front of them.
They get in. It pulls away.

INT. LIMOUSINE - MOVING - CONTINUOUS
Gero sits in the back, with who we now recognize as
Strange-Looking Goon and Ugly Goon from the party.

DRIVER
Where to, sir?

GERO
Go down to Sunset and turn right.
I’ll let you know when we get there.

IN THE UPSTAIRS BEDROOM
Carrie argues with Tip on the walkie talkie.

CARRIE
Now listen to me, asshole. This is for REAL.
I’m a private detective, and a FORMER COP.
I need you to call the REAL COPS,
and send a couple units over here.
I’m here with my family,
and we’re BEING ATTACKED by INTRUDERS.

PORKPIE (O.C.)
Put down the walkie, NOW.

PORKPIE
Walks into the room. Gun on Carrie.
She DROPS it. CLANK.

Bernie WHIPS out his gun.
Points it at Porkpie.

BERNIE
You shoot and you’re DEAD.

PORKPIE
You shoot and SHE’S dead.

CARRIE
Fellas, fellas -- let’s calm down here.

INT. TIP’S SECURITY VEHICLE - AT THAT MOMENT
He listens to the walkie. Presses ‘talk.’

TIP
Hello, are you still there?
I believe you, I believe you --
I need your address.
(listens)
Hello?
(beat)
Shit.

He puts down the walkie.
Picks up his cell phone.

PUNCHES a number. Listens.

TIP (CONT’D)
911? I’d like to report a crime in progress.
(beat)
A home invasion.
(beat)
Yes, I’ll hold.

INT. MARGO’S MANSION - STUDY - AT THAT MOMENT
Seth grabs his gun. Aims it at the door.

SETH
There’s someone out there.

BLUE
Shit.

EVA
(aims hers, whispers)
Let’s get ‘em.

MARGO
We have company?

LAYLA
Shh.

Layla adjusts the drip.
Margo goes out like a light.

EVA
We know you’re OUT THERE,
and we’ve ALL GOT GUNS.
So why don’t you GET THE HELL OUT OF THIS HOUSE.

SETH
(looks at her)
Eva --

OUTSIDE THE DOOR
Tolly steps away from the door.
Pulls out his gun.

TOLLY
What the fuck?

He puts his hand on the doorknob.
Slowly turns it. Pushes --

INSIDE THE STUDY
Eva sees the doorknob turning.
The door opening --

EVA
The DOOR.
