CUT TO:

 INT. KLIMPY’S RESTAURANT-WALK-IN FREEZER

SUPER: A WEEK EARLIER

Lindsay is having a smoke in the freezer when the door opens and her supervisor HERB PEPPER, a short stocky man with a bushy mustache walks in.

HERB PEPPER

Lindsay, what are you doing in here?

LINDSAY

Taking a smoke break, what does it look like?

HERB PEPPER

Didn’t you just have a smoke break a few minute ago?

LINDSAY

So, smoking relaxes me

NARRATOR (V.O.)

Remember kids, don’t smoke.

HERB PEPPER

That’s it, you’re fired!

LINDSAY

Wait, I need this job

HERB PEPPER

Tell that to someone who cares.

CUT TO

 EXT. KLIMPY’S RESTAURANT-EVENING

Starla is standing in front of the Klimpy’s Restaurant. Behind her Herb Pepper is being lifted into an ambulance. The news headline at the bottom of the screen reads “Local Klimpy’s manager Herb Pepper pepper sprayed.” Starla is using the reflection from the camera to fix her hair.

STARLA

(to cameraman)

Are we on?

CAMERAMAN (O.S.)

Yes.

Starla raises her microphone and smiles. Her identifying news text reads “Starla Collins: Reporter/Weathergirl”

STARLA

Thanks John. I’m at the scene of a firing gone bad…

Behind her Lindsay is being dragged out of the restaurant forcefully by 2 men who are wearing red polo shirts with the Klimpy’s logo on them.

(to Michael)

So what are we going to do for mom’s funeral?

I don’t know. I thought you guys would have figured it out.

GOB

My mother just died Michael.

MICHAEL

You realize she’s my mother too.

GOB

Yeah, yeah; everything’s about you Michael.

MICHAEL

I never said that.

GOB

You were thinking it.

LINDSAY

Yeah Michael, Why do you have to be so selfish?

MICHAEL

I was just…

 

Michael is cut off by the rest of his family chiming in with “Yeah” etc.

 

MICHAEL (CONT’D)

Ok, Ok, Maybe I was being a little selfish. What are we going to do about mom’s funeral?

I say we have a small funeral and have the wake here.

Ok.

GOB

Oh no, I was just playing with you. I sure got you.

MICHAEL

Yeah you did. So I guess you guys have the funeral planning done.

GOB

I guess we do.

MICHAEL

So where are we going to stay?

GOB

We don’t really have room for you to stay here…

MICHAEL

You guys haven’t sold the model home yet have you?

BUSTER

No.

MICHAEL

Ok, we’ll stay there.
