Thursday (1/15/09) 7:39pm - ... wherein Peter writes a sketch for Friday Sketch War.

This week's Friday Sketch War theme was "The Heist".  I fly off to Florida tomorrow, so here's my entry today:



               Friday Sketch War
               The Heist Edition
               "The Team"

               FADE IN:



               INT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

               BILL sits at a table piled high with schematics, maps, and
               diagrams.

               Guns, rapelling equipment, and electronic gadgets sit on
               another nearby table. 

               A nearby chalkboard shows the (heavily-annotated) floor plan
               of a large mansion.

               A giant photo thumbtacked to the chalkboard shows a big,
               glittery diamond.

               Beyond the tables and chalkboard:  darkness.

               Bill scribbles on the papers, checks a map against the
               chalkboard floorplan.

               A DOOR OPENS somewhere in the dark.

               JULIAN steps into the light.

                                   JULIAN
                         Mr. Ellis.  Our employer hopes your
                         plan for obtaining the Zawabi
                         Diamond is coming together?

                                   BILL
                         It's the perfect heist, kid.  Just
                         gimme manpower.

                                   JULIAN
                         Excellent.  Mr. Ellis, please meet
                         your team.

               EZRA enters the area, holding a Boggle game.

                                   JULIAN
                         Mr. Ezra Diablo, three-time
                         regional Boggle championship.

               Ezra shakes the Boggle game.

                                   EZRA
                         Let's boggle!

               MARY enters, holding a chihuahua who wears a hand-knit
               sweater.

                                   JULIAN
                         Mary Williamson, editor of Doggie
                         Sweater Enthusiast Magazine.

                                   MARY
                         Hello!

               JEAN-CLAUDE enters in full chef costume.

                                   JULIAN
                         Jean-Claude Brillac, expert pastry
                         chef.

                                   JEAN-CLAUDE
                         I am without equal!

               STEPHEN HAWKING wheels forward in a motorized wheelchair.

                                   JULIAN
                         And renowned physicist Stephen
                         Hawking.

               Mr. Hawking speaks via a computerized voicebox.

                                   MR. HAWKING
                         Let's do this shit.

               Beat.

                                   BILL
                         So... all the real criminals have
                         gone into banking?

                                   JULIAN
                         Afraid so.

                                                              BLACKOUT.
