From Brassiere To Eternity
Hey there, crime kids. Happy Friday. It's time once again to take a trip to the dark side, where your most violent fantasies become sins of the flesh, right here, where the hardboiled action is non-stop, at the coolest crime joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In Chapter 30 of SPIRAL, things get even more intense during their three-day drug and booze-filled binge when Andy thinks he's falling in love with porn star Savannah and Dex starts to get jealous, causing a love triangle of epic proportions ...
INT. LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
Shannon and Andy are locked in an embrace,
shuffling a slow dance, a million miles away.
Dex walks in the room. He's wired.
You guys wanna do a hit?
No response. They don't hear.
Andy, Savannah! You wanna do a hit?
They continue dancing, lost in a world of their own.
Dex walks over and TAPS Andy on the shoulder.
He JUMPS, stops dancing.
Shannon turns her head at the interruption.
May I cut in?
I want to keep dancing with Andy.
Dex GRABS Andy by the waist, holds him in a waltz position.
What are you doing?
I'm cutting in. I don't want to lose you to the other side.
Shannon sobers a little. She's confused.
What's going on?
Dex tries to dance with Andy, leads with a waltz,
but Andy doesn't budge.
Cut it out!
Andy PUSHES Dex's arms away.
What's wrong, lover boy, lost your hard on?
You heard me. Your Savannah hard on?
Shannon turns red. She doesn't like that name.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Don't call me Savannah!
I told you not to call me Savannah!
Sorry Savannah, won't happen again.
, by the way, you did feel his big thick cock
nice and hard against your crotch, didn't you?
...Your little mascot here confessed to me
that you make him rock hard!
He's dying to fuck you!
You little faggot!
Andy THROWS himself against Dex.
Ooh! Rough trade!
Andy SHAKES Dex like a sack of potatoes.
Shut your fucking mouth!
You fucking liar! I'm gonna castrate you!
Shannon JUMPS on top of Andy and POUNDS her fists on his back.
The three FALL to the floor, KICKING and SCREAMING.
INT. KITCHEN - NIGHT
Super: "11:57 PM"
Andy sits at the bar with a fresh drink.
His lip is swollen and bleeding.
He takes a sip of his drink and WINCES.
He picks up the phone and dials the intercom.
Don't hang up!
SPLIT SCREEN OF KITCHEN AND SHANNON'S BATHROOM - SAME
Shannon and Dex sit on their bar stools.
Dex is doing a hit of freebase.
She SLAMS down the phone. Leans over and does a line of coke.
Andy PUNCHES the intercom button again. The bathroom phone RINGS.
Shannon, you gotta let me explain!...
...Leave me alone!
She SLAMS down the phone again.
Then RIPS the cord out of the wall.
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you...
INT. SHANNON'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
Andy sees the door to the bathroom is closed.
He gets an idea, goes to Shannon's dresser and opens a drawer.
INT. BATHROOM - NIGHT
Super: "12:03 AM"
Dex hands the pipe to Shannon, fires up the torch.
We don't need him. He's not one of us.
Shannon holds the pipe in her mouth and nods her head.
Suddenly, a loud KNOCK at the door.
Candygram for Ms. Wilsey and Mr. Gordon!
Shannon RUSHES on the base. Dex gets up and opens the door.
Dex LOSES IT and LAUGHS manically.
INT. BATHROOM DOORWAY - NIGHT
Andy stands in the doorway wearing a bra, panties and high heels.
He holds a silver tray coquettishly like a parlormaid.
On it are three fresh cocktails.
Did somebody order room service?
Shannon sees this, CHOKES on the smoke,
and BURSTS into insane laughter.
