Happy Hump Day, crime humpsters! It's once again time to take a trip to the dark side, where your darkest hardboiled, ultra-violent desires become sins of the flesh, right here ... at That Killing Feeling.
In today's chapter from NOWHERE GIRLS, Homeland Security agent Cherry Nation, deep inside Honey Almond's underground lair, fights evil nurse Roxy to the death ... and rescues her kids ...
INT. HONEY'S UNDERGROUND LAIR - INFIRMARY - NIGHT
Cherry stands next to the door. Peers around the corner --
INT. INFIRMARY - NURSE’S OFFICE - CONTINUOUS
A plush living space, more like an apartment.
Cherry’s girls AURA (10) and AMBER (8)
lie sleeping peacefully in bed.
Roxy, the hot babe nurse we saw before
sits on the couch with her back to us
watching SUNSET BOULEVARD on TV.
GLORIA SWANSON (O.C.)
I AM big. It’s the PICTURES that got small --
Cherry raises her gun.
Tip-toes in. Stops. Takes aim.
I’m ready for my close-up, BITCH.
(turns around, startled)
What the -- ?
Move one muscle and you’re dead -- GOT IT?
Who the fuck are YOU?
(looks at the girls)
I’m their MOTHER, nurse Ratched.
Roxy takes advantage of the distraction.
DIVES to the floor.
What the FUCK?
The girls wake up. See Cherry.
A pistol CLICK-CLICKS.
Roxy stands. Gun aimed at the girls.
Drop the weapon, MOM.
You wouldn’t DARE.
Try me. DROP IT, or its Romper-Stomper room.
Cherry drops the Uzi.
It CLATTERS to the floor.
Now go join them on the bed.
So you can say night-night before lights out.
The girls start CRYING.
Cherry races over to them.
Hugs and comforts them.
Strokes their hair.
Shhh, it’s gonna be okay. Mommy’s here --
Roxy walks toward them. Pointing the gun.
Do you have any last words, mommy dearest?
In a blink of an eye, Cherry’s legs FLY UP,
and she KICKS Roxy in the face, CRACK.
She FLIES backwards, dropping the gun.
Cherry LEAPS off the bed,
GRABS the weapon, and SHOUTS --
Good night, NURSE.
And LEAPS on top of Roxy.
The girls SQUEAL, excited.
Cherry PISTOL-WHIPS Roxy, CRACK.
How DARE YOU fuck with my KIDS --
Roxy GRABS Cherry in a choke-hold.
She drops the gun.
GRABS at her neck,
tries to pull Roxy’s hands away.
But Roxy is STRONG, and won’t let go.
Cherry’s face starts turning red.
Oh, NO --
She reaches over and GRABS the table lamp.
Skitters over to where they’re fighting,
and SMASHES it on Roxy’s head, CRACK.
The lightbulb POPS and FIZZLES.
A POOF of grey smoke.
Roxy lies on the floor, motionless.
Consider this a DIVORCE.
Amber claps excitedly.
Cherry stares at Aura. Incredulous.
Thanks, honey --
Where on earth did you learn how to do THAT?
I saw it on ALIAS, mommy!
