INT. HOUSE, DAY.

POV:bottom of trashcan looking up A tissue falls into the camera after the lid opens up. outside trashcan Rick closes the trashcan and looks straight ahead. CLOSE UP:rick's face. Like, so close up that you can see his pores. Rick sniffles. RIC (NARRATION) I've had a cold for two months, five days, thirteen hours and 33 seconds. It's not terminal. It's just I'm allergic to the new air freshener my mom uses. I told her my inference. But she refuses to accept that that is the reason behind my suffering. Rick sniffles. RIC (NARRATION) I haven't always been a stay at home guy. At one point after high school I moved out and got my own place. But then I fell behind and got lazy and long story short; I got evicted and moved back in with my mom. Rick sniffles. RIC (NARRATION) I'm like Batman, except I'm not richer than Mark Zuckerberg and I don't have kick-ass gear. Also, only my dad is dead. My dad died when I was 4. He was into drugs, and another long story short; he became too back-logged on his drug business and was murdered by the Italians.

RIC (NARRATION) Every time I expect something exciting to happen in my life, it doesnâ t live up to my expectations or it doesnâ t even happen at all.

Iâ m not a deep person. I just think too much about deep things. And believe it or not, that's more than I've ever told anybody about myself. Not even to a girl on a first date, or to someone when I was trapped in an elevator with them for an extended period of time. So what makes you so special? I dunno. What makes killing zombies so damn entertaining? I don't know. It's just the way it is. Rick sneezes. RIC (NARRATION) I lost my train of thought a while ago.... I think I'm going to go watch a movie. Like maybe Robot Monster. Yeah, I could use a good laugh. Rick walks away. camera stays in the same spot. Scene fades out.
