Below is an excerpt from my first completed spec script. If anyone from Sunny sees it, I will accept payment in the form of a signed script or poster. Read the complete script here.
CHARLIE AND FRANK'S APARTMENT. DAY. CHARLIE ENTERS. FRANK IS SITTING ON THE COUCH, TALKING ON THE PHONE. FRANK And muchos grazzias to you, too. Frank hangs up the phone. CHARLIE What's going on? You're talking Spanish now? FRANK I found a new investment, I was talking to my new employee. CHARLIE What kind of investment, dude? FRANK Tacos. Everyone loves tacos, and Mexicans love making them. I figured - why not get in on some of that? CHARLIE Yeah, that's smart. So, like, a Mexican guy is gonna come here and make us tacos, or – FRANK No, no. Taco carts. I stopped for a quick bite on my way home from lunch and met this guy named Pancho selling tacos. I loaned him some money, and his kids are going to start selling tacos in other neighborhoods. CHARLIE You're going to have kids working for you? FRANK They're forty years old. Adults, working for their father's business selling addictive, unhealthy garbage. A couple of losers. CHARLIE All this talk is making me hungry. You wanna get something to eat?
I was recently commissioned to make a slightly different version of my Outlander model, with Claire in 18th-century clothing and the addition of Dougal. The costume change required a switch to yellow minifigures.
