My Arrested Development Screenplay: Part 3

Hey guys, sorry this post is a day late, but he’s the continuing story of the one show I love the most and the screenplay I wrote for the movie. Be sure to check out Parts One and Two

 

INT. PENTHOUSE-CONTINOUS

LINDSAY

He’s really wonderful.

CARL

I’m really just here for the bacon.

 

There is a plate of bacon on the coffee table. Carl picks up a particularly crunchy piece and takes a bite

MICHAEL

(sarcastically)

Yeah, he’s just wonderful.

 

Michael’s Aunt Susie and her son Larry get up to greet Michael, George Senior, and George Michael,

SUSIE

(hugging Michael)

Michael, I haven’t seen you in forever.

CLOSE UP: SUSIE

NARRATOR (V.O.)

This is Michael’s Aunt Susie.

 

SUPER: SUSAN “SUSIE” CARLON:RETIRED LUNCH LADY

She notices George Michael standing behind Michael

SUSIE

And who is this?

MICHAEL

Aunt Susie, you remember my son George Michael.

SUSIE

(pinching George Michael’s cheek)

Oh yes. How old are you now, 13?

GEORGE MICHAEL

Actually I’m 20.

SUSIE

Oh yes, a big boy.

SUSIE (CONT’D)

(turning to George Senior)

George, I see you’re still as bald as ever

GEORGE SENIOR

And I see your still as old as ever.

They hug.

MICHAEL

(extending his hand out to Larry for a handshake)

Hey Larry.

 

CLOSE-UP: LARRY

NARRATOR (V.O.)

This is Michael’s cousin Larry.

 

SUPER: LAWRENCE “LARRY” CARLON: MOMMA’S BOY

Larry just stands there not doing anything, looking a little uneasy

 

SUSIE

Oh, he won’t shake your hand, he’s afraid of the germs.

MICHAEL

Oh, okay.

MICHAEL (CONT’D)

(to his siblings)

I’m surprised we still have the penthouse; I thought you guys would have gotten rid of it after mom went to prison.

LINDSAY

Oh no. Me, Buster and Gob have been living here. We couldn’t let this place go.

GOB

Yeah, I had to move in when you took the yacht.

MICHAEL

Why couldn’t you just live in the Model Home?

LINDSAY

Oh, we’re selling that to help pay for the penthouse

MICHAEL

But how can you afford it.

LINDSAY

We do have jobs, Michael!

MICHAEL

Really?

LINDSAY

Yes.

BUSTER

I opened a prosthetic shop with J. Walter Weatherman.

NARRATOR (V.O.)

After Michael left his sibling had all gone off into the world and gotten jobs. Michael’s younger brother Buster had partnered with J. Walter Weatherman, a former Bluth Company employee who lost an arm in a construction accident to open a prostethic store after losing his second hand in a seal attack.

Gob and Steve come on stage from the right and begin to dance to Final Countdown which plays in the background. Gob attempts to light a fireball using the lighter up his sleeve but it is a dud.

 

GOB

(struggling with the lighter)

Why won’t this thing light.

The Crowd boos

MAN IN AUDIENCE (O.S.)

You Suck!

Gob kneels down in front of the first row and begins fiddling with the lighter. He gets it to light.

Yes!

A spark from his lighter accidental sets a woman in the 1st row’s hair on fire. She starts to scream.

Oh Shit.

Gob and Steve slowly slink off stage.
