                    SAMANTHA
          I worship guitars.
                    SAMANTHA
          I’d ride this one like a c**k at
          high noon how about you?

SAM You mean?

                    SAM
          would I f**k one?
                    SAMANTHA
          No silly bean.

          Not only do I worship them, but I’m
          the lead guitarist for the the
          Wretched.
Sam clears his throat.
                    SAM
          You know the Wret..ched?
                    SAMANTHA
          Never heard of them.
                    SAMANTHA
          I’m in a band too but we play down
          at the Big Wangs.
                    SAMANTHA
          It’s not a bad gig but in reality
          you’re just a live jukebox to them.
                    SAMANTHA
          People come to hear us play
          there... important people.
                    SAMANTHA
          We almost made it to the Mammoth
          though, that would have totally
          rocked!
                    SAM VO
          There was pride in her voice.
                    SAM
          Yeah well that’s life I guess. S**t
          happens like that.
                    SAMANTHA
          So what do you wanna do?
                    SAM
          About what?
                    SAMANTHA
          The guitar?
                    SAMANTHA
          You gonna buy it?
                    SAM
          Cant afford it.

                    SAM
          I’ve got some money saved but not
          nearly as much as it costs.
                     SAMANTHA
          How much you got?
                    SAM
          About half I think.
Sam reaches into his pockets and pulls out a wad cash and
counts it.
                    SAMANTHA
          I’ve got an idea.
                    SAMANTHA
          Why don’t we go in and buy it

together?

                    SAMANTHA
          I can pay for it on my credit card
          and we can work something out, you
          know.... the standard down the
          middle s**t, like three days for
          you three for me, then we flip for
          the seventh day.
                    SAMANTHA
          That way we both get what we want.
                    SAMANTHA

          the salt. Not the almost like us.
                    SAMANTHA
          The kind of people that don’t make
          the six o’clock news and no one
          gives a f**k either way.
                    SAMANTHA
          Think of all the dysfunctional
          families we’ll be helping out.
                    SAM

          guitar to kill my victims.

          The thing about this brand of drill
          is that they take forever to
          charge.
Edgar puts the drill near Samantha’s ear and strokes her
hair.
                    EDGAR
          It’s almost time but god isn’t
