You didnt fill out most of the answers. GREG Right, I was wondering if you could give me a break on that. In frustration he bangs

11.

PETER Eh... I dont think I could do that Mr. Flabergasterstien. GREG But wait, wait I have a reason. Look, Im sure you can tell by now Im smarter than most of the class but... I have a problem. PETER What is it? GREG You know Kimberly right? The beautiful blond who sits in front of me. INT. PETERS CLASSROOM - FLASHBACK A silent, blurry flashback. PETER (V.O.) Yeah uh...

GREG Im in love with her. so... perfect. Shes just

GREG subtlety makes the motion of grabbing a persons ass, that turns to clenching fists in frustration. PETER laughs. PETER Oh man Greg, look Ive been there before. All you gotta do is... PETERs face grows blank, GREG waits for a response. PETER looks like hes about to speak, but holds his tongue.

INT. PETERS CLASSROOM PETER sits once again in a dark classroom playing his guitar. PETER Pretty girls dont like Fat Fucking Faggots. Pretty girls are like... stay away from me... maggot.

KIMBERLY (sultry) Dont worry, I wont tell anyone. I would never want to upset you Mr. Nelson. She winks and walks to the door. PETER looks dumbfounded. FADE OUT. INT. PETERS CLASSROOM PETER stares at the camera. PETER You thought that was the end huh? No you dumb as fucking faggot bpiece of shit. Theres more. You see when I ws in college last year I had an assignment, to create a final project for some dumb gay Earth scines class. I decided to make a news broadcast, but funny guy I am, its a sketch. Here it is. FADE OUT. INT. STUDIO WE SEE PETER drssed as an ACHNOR (23) ertile defunct. FADE IN. ANCHOR Welcome back to WGAS 6 oclock news. Its day uhh.... (look at phone) 7 of the apocalypse, and lucky me I still get to come into work and give all you viewers, all 12 of you still alive, the up to

19.

ANCHOR date on all your rapture news. lets a have a look outside. footage of earthquake disaters.

So

ANCHOR Oop, looks like those earthquakes are still plauging amereica, and europe, and asia, but not this studio for some reason. So uh... normally Earthquakes are casused by technontic plates doing thins (hand mostions) or this (hand motion) hey time out (giggle). Also remeber facts (make face). Oh Thats an acrynym of what can kill you in a earthquake. Fire - If the gas lines break, but thats happened world wide. Avlange and Landslide - But then again I think all the mountinas in the word have crumbled by now. Collpse - thats a biggy, buildings falling. NOw uh... if your caught in an earthqakue and youre house wasnt already destroyed, dont hide in doorways, hide in your bathtub. Just rememebr not to turn in your fuactes since most of them seep blood now. Um... dont stand in an open feild noewadays thorugh unless you want to be raped by a demon. Tsunami Hey thats one good thing about the oceans drying up. And... (peer at moniter) Subsidence - I dont know what the fuck that is. Oop! Oh wait, I dont think anyone cares what I say anymore. Fuck! (giggle) We have some more footage from outside. View of horrible volcano. ANCHOR Oh fuck (quick smirk). Okay, so every volcano is the world is still going off. All except for yellowstone for some reason. So anyway. Oh sweet more acroonymes! EAGLET. Uh Explosions! Uh thats like rocks and shit falling from the sky,

20. ANCHOR though nowadays end of times cults might be more likly explode in your face. Gas Oh wait wait I feel a pyroclastic flow coming (fart) heheheheheheh show footage. ANCHOR Thats get ya. Uh Lava. Earth quake. Okay so, if your volcano causes an earthquake I need to remember facts. Oh also the T in eglat stands for tusnimais. But the t is facts also stands for tusnanis. So you could just take out the t in egealt and make it egal, and have it implied that tusinais might occur becuase the t in facts. (drinks beer) put notes at bottom. ANCHOR Hmmm... maybe we can have another look outside. tint a hurricane red ANCHOR Oh, blood hurrincane. Thats gross. Normally hurricanes are cuased by thunderstones that start off the coast of africa, gainging power from 80 degree water above the equaitor. It starts as a tropical disturbance, then depression, then storm, then hurricane. Uh with blood hurricanes storms... uh the blood spelt by demons off the coast of everywhere gets warped up in a cyclone of pure evil and travels all around the world. Is Chris Cristie still alive? Cause dont tell him about it, hell take credit for helping anyone survive the hurricane and milk it for two years. Porblay try to take over some backwards canbalistic civilcation, or whatever society rises up after New Jeresy falls.

21. ANCHOR Oh... oh shit! I just got word theres a giant metoer heading to Earth. put notes at bottom. Then show fooateg from armgeadon.

ANCHOR No no, thats just a clip from Armageddon. Wouldnt that be funny though, if the apacolyse is going on and some metor just crashes into Earth by happenstance? (think about it). Yeah I wish right. I really need to get out of this studio, but we barred from the inside. And I csnt take it anymore. All we have left in one sandwhich... DIES OF PEANUT ALERGY. INT. PETERS CLASSROOM PETER still looks at camera. PETER Not very good huh? Well it was quite rushed if I may say so. So suck my dick I do not care. VANNESSA enters. PETER Oh hey Vennessa. VANESSA Hi, Peter. Youre not bad looking, but youre not so hot I would just leave my boyfriend for you. You get that. Do you hink I should be fun and poppy, or serious and stern. PETER ither is a dumb sterytpe that has been seen a million times. The writer cant deicde what you are and hats very bad, and needs to be expanded upon if this pilot ever comes to flurishion.

22. VANESSA I agree, but I dont want to be like the girl form 500 days of summer thats well pased being creative. PETER Yes, but if the writer wants you to be that way, I dont see why he cant do it. Fuck people telling him what to do, thatll just ruin it more. KIMBERLY enters. KIMBERLY I do find you attractive, but I think I need more of a reason why. Like for some reason Im attracted to teachers. PETER Yes, you are very hot. That is the point of your character. Do be as hot as humaly possilbe, and eben though you are currently a fiction character I hope to one day shoot this with an acutal hot attrss. Its very important though thtat the actress be 16, to make the legitmat concern of finding a 16 year attractive a real thing. VANESSA I agree, that would be a good idea. Its not like there are no attractive 16 year old. Sur, most of them need to develope more, but its certainly possible for a 16 year odl to look like she 18 or 19, and theres nothing wrong with finding a desire to have sex with them. The only ethical grey comes when it comes to actully having sx with them. PETER However there are many palces that say its okay. So who can br right. In the case f my audience Ill go to my defeat reaction of no sex until 18. But the writer realies its more fun to push boundries then just be

23. KIMBERLY Should my charcter be smart, dumb, "regular". I shy away from regular beuase it makes the writer sound like a pretencious a-hole whos all like "Hey look at me, my female characts arent sterypes, theyre just real people HURR DURRR". Fuck that noise man. TV characters are never normal, its impossible, even in "reality" TV. Its more interesting to have a cheerleader who happens to be smart, or to say fuck all to the world ad make her dumb as a brick just like soicety wants to view woman. Ot gives the view of "society has it wrong, but sometimes, what can you say, theyve got to be right sometimes. Sucks right?". GREG enters. GREG Im I too much a product of the internet? Will people get my character, the steryytical neck beard who thinks the world owes him everything? GREG My chrater is going to be Atheist, and its confusing to have the character not give relgions to anyone else. PETER Well you cant say "Im not very relgious" wihout people assumignyoure saying "Im atheist". I need to make it clear that althoguh I typically follow relgious tendencies, I dont follow the relgion of atheism. GREG Hey atheism is not a relgion. PETER Sure its not, Champ. Every laguhs, GREG scwols. FADE OUT.
