PART OF SCRIPT

Basically people are getting ready to go to the reunion. It is all being filmed by one person and below is a scene where the over confident and generally unpleasant man expects to find the prettiest lady at a dating agency.

FADE IN:

MATTHEW HAMPTON, DELUSIONAL with regard to his ability and appearance, is being FILMED by HAROLD entering a DATING AGENCY to find some one to accompany him to the REUNION. RUTH, the AGENCY STAFF MEMBER is INTERVIEWING him.

RUTH
As I’m sure you’re aware our clients requirements are paramount, with that in mind is there anything in particular you would like to discuss?

MATTHEW
Well I’m easily pleased, so I guess as long as she’s attractive, and I mean attractive, I’m happy.

RUTH
Yes sir I understand that, but there does need to be a balance amongst our clients. It is best to ascertain similar interests, beliefs and such like.

MATTHEW
Huh?

MATTHEW glances at the camera with a PUZZLED look.

RUTH
It helps if our couples can compliment each other equally. The last thing you want is to be matched with a person of conflicting views.

MATTHEW
Just someone who is attractive is fine.

RUTH takes a deep BREATH.

RUTH
Look sir, how about this. If you rate yourself as a number I will find someone of a similar type, do you understand?

MATTHEW
Yes I understand. Ok well I’m a very confident person, I am definitely a 9.5, I would say 10

MATTHEW SMILES at the camera

MATTHEW
But best to be a little modest.

RUTH MURMURING
More like a 3.

MATTHEW
Pardon?

RUTH
I said ‘ok sir’, now if you would just bear with me for a moment.

MATTHEW
Oh one more thing, no Eastern Europeans, I can’t understand them, they speak funny.

RUTH
Well we are all different, unique.

MATTHEW
I’m not.

RUTH
I see.

FADE OUT

David, I really like what you've written! You're so clever - I want to read more! I want to know how and when this smug character gets a dose of reality - that will happen, right? Thanks for letting us see a little bit, David - that was very brave of you - great job!

That is fun! Great scene; enjoyed dialogue. Best of all I want to know what happens next.

This probably happens all the time to dating services. "Hi, "I'm a VERY young 84 looking for a beautiful,
smart, athletic woman of 25 or so. It's okay if she doesn't cook. Though it would be nice. Blonde is great."
i joined one of those one time...harmony I think...and couldn't believe how 80% of the guys had that same
description. Like...they don't really KNOW what they want. Just...some advertisement they saw. Or what
IS that, anyway? Is that truly what guys want? Maybe it is.

If we look around, unpleasant and not so good looking gets the pretty girl quite often. Because women don't use
the handsome scale, most of us don't. We use other criteria.

All that aside, LOVE it.
And kudos to you for getting it written and out there. May we have some more, please.
Join that Script Frenzy, I hope! You'll have a blast and may even finish a rough draft.
