MARK
Tell the folks at home what you're doing Roger
ROGER
I'm writing one great song --
MARK
The phone rings
ROGER
Yesss!
MARK
We screen.
ROGER & MARK'S ANSWERING MACHINE
"Speak". . .("Beeep!")
COLLINS
"Chestnuts Roasting---"
ROGER & MARK
Collins!
COLLINS
I'm downstairs
MARK
Hey!
COLLINS
Roger picked up the phone??
MARK
No, it's me.
COLLINS
Throw down the key.
MARK
A wild night is now pre-ordained
COLLINS
I may be detained.
MARK
What does he mean. . .?
What do you mean - detained?
BENNY
Ho ho ho.
MARK & ROGER
Benny! Shit.
BENNY
Dudes, I'm on my way
MARK & ROGER
Great! Fuck
BENNY
I need the rent
MARK
What rent?
BENNY
This past year's rent which I let slide
MARK
Let slide? You said we were 'golden'
ROGER
When you bought the building
MARK
When we were roommates
ROGER
Remember - you lived here!?
BENNY
How could I forget?
You, me, Collins, and Maureen
How is the drama queen?
MARK
She's performing tonight
BENNY
I know.
Still her production manager?
MARK
Two days ago I was bumped
BENNY
You still dating her?
MARK
Last month I was dumped
ROGER
She's in love
BENNY
She's got a new man?
MARK
Well - no
BENNY
What's his name?
BOTH
Joanne
BENNY
Rent, my amigos, is due
Or I will have to evict you
Be there in a few
MARK
The power blows. . .
