4:30 P.M.--On a Friday--Philadelphia, PA INT. DENNIS AND MAC’S APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - DAY DENNIS, MAC, and CHARLIE are sitting on the couch, watching a movie. CHARLIE Nope. No more. DENNIS What? CHARLIE I can’t take anymore of this. MAC What the hell are you talking about, bro? CHARLIE We’ve been watching the same movie for like 36 straight hours, and I can’t do it anymore. DENNIS Charlie, like we’ve told you before, we are going to sit here and make you watch Predator until you admit to its greatness as a film. MAC Even if we have to watch it fifty times in a row. What are we on, like seventeen? CHARLIE Gah! When does Frank get back from his business trip? I’ve been bored as shit this week. MAC Later today, I think. I don’t really care. CHARLIE You know, I might just head over to Paddy’s. I haven’t been there since Frank left and it might just cure my boredom--

2.

DENNIS (interrupting) Wait, you haven’t been to the bar since Frank left? CHARLIE No. DENNIS Neither have I. MAC Well why the hell not? He left almost a week ago! DENNIS I kind of figured that I’d just take the week off while he wasn’t around. CHARLIE Who did you think was working then? DENNIS You guys? I guess... CHARLIE I thought that you guys were taking care of that! MAC I haven’t been to the bar in like *two* weeks. DENNIS Why the hell not? MAC I’ve been working on pumping iron for the Philly strong-man competition. Which I would have won if I hadn’t eaten that bad sausage Charlie made me and thrown up all over the place. CHARLIE Quit blaming my sausage for everything, dude. DENNIS Well, what about Dee? Do you think that maybe she’s taking care of it?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: MAC Probably not, no. CHARLIE Yeah, that was a dumb question to ask. You shouldn’t have even asked it. DENNIS You’re right. I wasn’t thinking. I was worried about the bar. MAC So, what we’re saying is that nobody has been to Paddy’s for over a week?

3.

The guys look at each other for a beat. They then scramble toward the door. EXT. PADDY’S - FRONT - DAY Dennis, Mac, and Charlie are approaching the front of the bar. DENNIS I can’t believe you guys left the bar deserted like that. There’s probably crackheads or methheads in there, or we probably got robbed, or something terrible. CHARLIE Yeah, probably. MAC That’s a complete breach of bar security, dude. DENNIS Frank told me that I was in charge while he was gone and you guys totally screwed me over! MAC Whoa, hold up! The guys stop walking. MAC Frank told *me* that *I* was in charge while he was gone.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: DENNIS Why would he do that? You haven’t been inside of the bar for the better part of a month! MAC I can’t believe he told each one of us that we were in charge for the week. CHARLIE He didn’t tell *me* that I was in charge. Pause for a beat. DENNIS Well, at least he did something that makes sense. Two tipsy patrons exit Paddy’s and walk past the guys. MAC What the hell is that? INT. PADDY’S - DAY

4.

Paddy’s is as busy as it has ever been. Several patrons are at the bar area, waiting to pay for their drinks, or sitting at the booths. A man behind the bar, TOM, walks up to the guys. TOM What can I get for you guys? DENNIS Um, I’m not sure. You see, we’re the owners of this bar. TOM Oh yeah, you guys are the owners! Frank said-CHARLIE (interrupting) You know Frank? TOM Yeah, he said that you guys would be stopping by at some point. I kind of figured that at least one of you would be checking up on me during the week, but it’s cool. (CONTINUED)

5.

MAC Wait, how do you know Frank exactly? TOM He hired me to be in charge of the bar while he was gone on business. Dennis, Mac, and Charlie look at Tom with hatred in their eyes. CUT TO BLACK. TEXT: "THE GANG STAGES A HOSTILE TAKEOVER." ROLL OPEN CREDITS. CUT TO: FADE IN: EXT. PADDY’S - NIGHT - ESTABLISHING INT. PADDY’S - NIGHT Dennis, Mac, and Charlie are still sitting at the bar, observing the raucous crowd in their bar. MAC I can’t believe it. I haven’t seen a crowd like this in here since... CHARLIE Since forever! MAC ...Since we thought all our been had gone bad and we were giving it away for free. DENNIS Who does this guy think he is, just waltzing into *our* bar and turning it into a successful business? He’s changing everything we’ve worked hard for! SWEET DEE enters the bar and approaches the guys. SWEET DEE What the hell is this shit? This is awesome!

(CONTINUED)

6.

CHARLIE Frank put some dickhead in charge of the bar while he was gone. SWEET DEE But look at this crowd! We could start to seriously make some money! MAC Look, don’t get too excited, Dee, because we’re getting rid of this clown. I don’t want strangers in the bar. You know I didn’t even get a change to do a background check on this guy? DENNIS Why they hell would you do a background check on him? MAC As the chief of security of Paddy’s, it’s my duty to make sure that total knobs like this guy don’t have access to sensitive areas of the bar. CHARLIE Yeah. That’s worked out great for us time and time again. Tom walks up to the gang. TOM Hey, guys! Is everything OK over here? Can I get you anything to drink? SWEET DEE Yeah, I’ll have like four beers, maybe a shot of vodka... TOM Wait a sec, I’ve met you before; do you know the owners? SWEET DEE Yeah. Where have we met before? TOM Well, a couple of nights ago, you stumbled into the bar about a half hour after closing and poured (MORE) (CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

7.

TOM (cont’d) yourself like three shots of vodka and downed them in succession and then stumbled away. SWEET DEE I did? TOM Yeah, I told you to get the hell out, and you kind of ignored me and drank your vodka and left. We called the cops and they went looking for you, but--you know what? It’s cool. We won’t worry about it. Case closed. CHARLIE Wait a minute. Did you clean my toilets? TOM Yeah, they were really gross, but they’re good now. CHARLIE I can’t believe this! Charlie exits toward the bathrooms. Tom shrugs and moves off to help other customers. MAC I still can’t believe that Frank didn’t tell us what the hell was going on. SWEET DEE He totally went over all of our heads with this! DENNIS Well, Dee, no one went over your head because you’re already at the bottom of the pile. The point is that we need to get rid of this jerkoff! Tom returns to the gang with envelopes and tosses one each at Mac and Dennis. TOM I almost forgot--here are your guys’ cuts. (CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: Mac and Dennis open up the envelopes to find a copious amount of cash in them. MAC Holy shit! DENNIS There’s like a thousand dollars in here! MAC Mine too! DENNIS (to Tom) Welcome aboard, dude! SWEET DEE Sweet! Where’s my cut? Tom looks embarrassed at Dee’s question. TOM Well, Frank gave me pretty specific instructions on how to distribute the money and you weren’t a part of those instructions... SWEET DEE God damn Frank! MAC Dee, you’re not an owner of the bar. You don’t get a cut. TOM If you need money, I could use a server. We’re clearly very busy right now. SWEET DEE I’m already the server. You can’t hire me for a job that I already have! And besides, you don’t have that kind of power! TOM Frank said I could hire whoever I want. MAC You’re going to have to deal with a lot of lip.

8.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

9.

TOM I think I can handle it. DENNIS Your own funeral, dude. TOM OK, you’re hired. Let’s get to work. Sweet Dee pathetically exhales and moves behind the bar. Charlie returns from the bathroom. CHARLIE OK, you did a pretty good job in there. Did you use some kind of special cleaning technique that I’m not familiar with or something? TOM No, I just used abrasive cleaner, a sponge, and some elbow grease. CHARLIE Did you say "grease?" I have not tried that yet. Tom tosses an envelope of cash to Charlie. TOM Here you go, there’s your cut for the past week. Charlie opens the envelope. CHARLIE There’s like two hundred dollars in here! Charlie pauses. CHARLIE That’s awesome! Let’s go out and celebrate! MAC Strip club? DENNIS Strip club.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

10.

TOM Sounds like you’re going to the strip club! DENNIS Dee, you want to come to the strip club with us? SWEET DEE Hell yeah! Sweet Dee turns to Tom. SWEET DEE Hey, look, "boss," I’m going to need a break to go out with the guys--so, I’ll see you in a couple of hours, k? TOM (sternly) I hired you forty-five seconds ago and you’re already asking for a two hour break? SWEET DEE Um, yes? TOM No. After a pause, Sweet Dee walks away with her tail between her legs. CHARLIE Wow, dude. You just totally broke her spirit within minutes of meeting her. MAC I told you that she could get mouthy. CUT TO: EXT. STRIP CLUB - NIGHT - ESTABLISHING

11.

INT. STRIP CLUB Dennis, Mac, and Charlie are drinking beers and enjoying their surroundings. DENNIS I got to hand it to Frank, that guy was a find. MAC I don’t know, dude. I get a bad feeling from that guy. DENNIS What exactly is your issue with him? MAC There was no opportunity to check him our or anything. I didn’t even get to do a background check or an occular pat-down or anything. CHARLIE Background check? What are you talking about? DENNIS What exactly does your "background check: consist of? MAC (struggling for words) Well, I’d probably follow him to his house and rummage through his garbage and go through his apartment while he sleeps. DENNIS So, your background check is basically you invading a man’s privacy and breaking in to his apartment? MAC That’s not the point, dude. The point is that he could be a serial rapist for all we know! DENNIS Well, if he continues to bring in the money like he has been, I’d tell him, "Rape away!" (CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

12.

Most of the people in the club near that gang stop and stare at Dennis. CHARLIE Whoa. DENNIS (stammering) That’s not what I--that came out wrong! People slowly go back to what they were doing. MAC Great, dude. You just made us look like assholes in front of all of the strippers. I’m going to go get a dance. Mac gets up and leaves the area. CUT TO: EXT. PADDY’S - NIGHT - ESTABLISHING INT. PADDY’S - NIGHT Tom is frantically pouring drinks and taking orders for the new-found customers of the bar. PAN to find Sweet Dee drinking from a bottle of vodka and reading a magazine at the end of the bar. TOM Dee? Can you take these shots to that table over by the pool table? Sweet Dee ignores Tom. TOM Dee?! SWEET DEE Fine! I’ll do your damn work for you! TOM You’re not doing *my* work, you’re doing the work that I hired you to do, so do it!

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

13.

Dee tosses her magazine onto the bar and stumbles to the tray of shots. She is clearly intoxicated, but manages to navigate the crowd and make it to the table. Three young female CUSTOMERS are sitting impatiently. CUSTOMER 1 Finally! We’ve been waiting for these shots for twenty minutes. SWEET DEE With that attitude, you’re going to be waiting even longer... with that attitude! Dee sets the tray on the table, slams the three shots in succession and begins to walk back to the bar. CUSTOMER 2 Wow, she’s just as rude and awful as the last ugly waitress we had when we here last week. Sweet Dee stops in her tracks and turns back toward the table. SWEET DEE Oh yeah? You think you’re better than me just because you’re younger and prettier... and younger than me? CUSTOMER 1 Yes? SWEET DEE I’m going to be coming back in another twenty minutes with a beer bottle to smash over your god damn head you stupid bitch! So wait here until I come back. Sweet Dee walks back to the bar, where Tom is standing and has witnessed the entire exchange. TOM What the hell was that, Dee? SWEET DEE Oh, that? I had to keep some turkeys in line.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: TOM Turkeys? What the hell are you talking about; you were very rude to customers in front of other customers! Sweet Dee puts a finger to Tom’s mouth. SWEET DEE Shhhhh. TOM Don’t shush me, Dee. You’re fired. SWEET DEE What? You can’t fire me! You’re not an owner of the bar! TOM Yeah, and apparently neither are you, and I can see why. I’ve never met someone who had as bad of an attitude as you... SWEET DEE (interrupting) That’s a lot of talking that you’re doing. Blah, blah. I quit this lousy job. Sweet Dee leaves Tom, bewildered at the bar.

14.

CUT TO: EXT. STRIP CLUB - NIGHT - ESTABLISHING INT. STRIP CLUB Mac sits in a corner of the strip club. A yet unseen STRIPPER sits across the table from him. MAC I mean, come on! Right? We don’t know the guy; we don’t know his qualifications; we don’t know if he’s just swooped in on other bars and then murdered the employees in their sleep--and then just moves on to the next town to the next unsuspecting bar to chop them up. The stripper looks at Mac, exasperated. (CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

15.

STRIPPER Um, do you want me to dance for you? MAC What? STRIPPER Well, you gave me the money, so I figured that you wanted me to grind on you or something. MAC Listen, stripper, I gave you 20 backs. Now, you basically have to do anything I tell you to do short of blow me, okay? The song changes on the speaker system. STRIPPER Well, that’s the end of the song. Do you want another one? MAC Why would I want that, stripper? You’re clearly no help to me. You have a nice rack, though. You should be very proud of that. The stripper gets up and walks away. Charlie approaches. CHARLIE Hey. MAC Hey. You wanna get out of here? CHARLIE Yeah, I already spent all my money on the strippers. Can we have a heart-to-heart, dude? MAC Always. CHARLIE I kind of miss Frank. MAC What? Why the hell do you miss that old bastard?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

16.

CHARLIE You know, I was thinking while the stripper was rubbing herself all over me, he really keeps me grounded. MAC Are you crazy? Frank is absolutely the most insane person that either of us have known. CHARLIE Yeah. OK, maybe I just miss him. Is that a crime? MAC It probably should be. Listen, if you help me get the low down on that dillhole back at the bar, I’ll help you find Frank. Deal? Dennis approaches with two girls, DESIREE and MANDY. DENNIS Hey, guys! What’s up? CHARLIE Hey, who are these ladies? DENNIS Well, this is Desiree, and this is Tammy! MANDY Mandy. DENNIS Whatever. I don’t really care. Dennis turns to Mac and gives him his car keys. DENNIS Hey, listen: these to take me back to totally have their I need to you take while I’m gone. girls are going their place and way with me, so care of my car

MAC Whatever, dude. Have fun with your skanks.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

17.

DENNIS Thanks, I will! Dennis, Desiree, and Mandy exit. CHARLIE Aren’t you going to do a background check or an occular pat-down on those girls? They could be taking Dennis back to their place to kill him and use his skin as a hat or something. MAC What? They’re girls. They don’t have muscles. That lucky bastard will be fine. We have work to do. CUT TO: EXT. PHILLY STREETS - NIGHT Mac is driving Dennis’ Range Rover. Charlie is in the passenger seat, inspecting some high-tech equipment. MAC This stuff was expensive but it was worth it. We’re going to pry into that son of a bitch’s life and find out all his dark, dirty secrets. CHARLIE What do you think we’re going to find? MAC Oh, you know. The usual stuff. Blood splatters, stolen credit cards, naked pictures of Ryan Phillipe. I don’t know! I just know that it’s going to be shady, and we’ll use it as grounds to get rid of the guy. That’s why I bought all this stuff... Mac picks up a piece of equipment. MAC ...like this thing. Mac tosses the equipment into the backseat.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

18.

CHARLIE And then we’re going to find Frank, right? MAC Yes, dude. We’ll find Frank. CHARLIE Do you even know how any of this stuff works? You spent all of your money you got on it. MAC We’ll figure it out as we go. I figure we’ll get back to the apartment, we’ll unload it... Suddenly, Sweet Dee walks out in front of the car, and Mac slams on the brakes to avoid her. CHARLIE Holy shit! SWEET DEE Watch where you’re going to stupid bastard! MAC Dee?! Mac and Charlie exit the vehicle to find Sweet Dee stumbling across the street. MAC Jesus Christ, Dee! I almost hit you and splattered your brains all over Dennis’ car! And you know that he would have made me clean it up. SWEET DEE (bawling) I just got fired from the bar! CHARLIE What? That guy fired you? SWEET DEE Yeah, just out of nowhere! MAC Well, we’re going to help you out.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: SWEET DEE How are you going to do that? We’re check We’re lives MAC going to go do a background on that guy running the bar. going to find out where he and then go snoop around.

19.

SWEET DEE And then find something shady and get rid of him? MAC Yeah. And what better way for you to feel better about your own pathetic misfortunes than to ruin the life of someone else? SWEET DEE I am so down for that. CHARLIE And then we’re going to find Frank, right? MAC Yeah. Sure thing, dude. Behind Charlie’s back, Mac grimaces and shakes his head; they will not be looking for Frank. EXT. PARKING LOT - NIGHT A car pulls up in a deserted parking lot. Mandy drives and Desiree is in the passenger seat. MANDY We’re here! DENNIS (muffled, off camera) Awesome! I have to say, girls, this is some really kinky shit. DESIREE We knew you’d like it. Mandy and Desiree get out of the car, make their way to the rear of the vehicle and open the trunk. REVEAL Dennis, handcuffed and blindfolded in the trunk with a huge smile on his face.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

20.

MANDY Hi Dennis! DENNIS Hi...whichever one you are! DESIREE Are you ready for the best part of this whole adventure? DENNIS Uh, yeah. I’m guessing that this is the part where we actually have the threesome? MANDY Well, first, we’re going to need your pants. DENNIS That makes sense, yeah. Mandy and Desiree remove Dennis’ pants, leaving him in only his shirt and underwear (and blindfold and handcuffs). DENNIS So, are we almost ready? Mandy and Desiree look through Dennis’ pockets to find the envelope of cash from earlier in the evening. They look very proud of themselves for their find. Desiree uncuffs Dennis’ hands. MANDY Oh, we’re ready all right. Just leave the blindfold on. It heightens the anticipation of what’s going to happen. DENNIS God, you girls are crazy! DESIREE We know! Mandy and Desiree return to the car, with Dennis’ pants, leaving him standing in the parking lot. They peel out and drive away. Dennis remains standing alone, blindfolded in the parking lot. DENNIS Is this part of the threesome? I’m confused.

21.

CUT TO: EXT. DENNIS AND MAC’S APARTMENT - NIGHT - ESTABLISHING INT. DENNIS AND MAC’S APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - NIGHT Mac, Charlie, and Sweet Dee have strewn much of the expensive equipment about the living room. Part of the equipment includes a laptop computer, set up on a table. Mac sits at the table, ready to type. Charlie sits at the couch, watching television. MAC OK, I think we’re all set up here; ready to go! SWEET DEE Did you really need all of this stuff? MAC You can’t be too careful with strangers like this, Dee! He could have violent crimes on his record, and we got to find out! SWEET DEE What? You have numerous violent crimes on *your* record, and we’ve never run a background check on you. Maybe you’re the one we should watch out for! MAC Dee, that is so completely besides the point that I won’t dignify it with a response. Charlie, how you doing over there? CHARLIE I’m good, dude! MAC You figuring out that equipment? I need you to be my chief of operations when we find this guy’s apartment. CHARLIE Uh, yeah. I got it figured all out already! (CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: Sweet Dee walks to Charlie on the couch. SWEET DEE Yeah, he’s got it figured out all right. He’s watching Predator. MAC What? SWEET DEE Yeah. MAC That is awesome! CHARLIE I know, right? I think I finally get it! MAC Isn’t it the greatest piece of film in the world, ever? CHARLIE It’s pretty great. And it only took me like 25 times of watching it to realize it. MAC Great! Now that we’ve got that settled, we can start the background check on this guy. Mac pauses at the laptop. SWEET DEE What’s the problem? Why aren’t you doing it? MAC I just realized that I don’t know the guy’s name. SWEET DEE What?! How do you not know his name? MAC Do you know it? SWEET DEE (stammering) Well--no.

22.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

23.

MAC You worked for the guy! How do you not know his name? SWEET DEE Can’t you still do the background check? MAC I can’t just type in a physical description and have it spit out a detailed history of the guy’s life! Sweet Dee begins to hold her stomach, looking very sick. SWEET DEE Ugh. Ouch. CHARLIE What’s wrong? SWEET DEE I think those last four vodka shots just hit me in the wrong spots. MAC Are you OK? Sweet Dee immediately vomits all over Mac’s equipment, including the laptop. MAC Dee?! Are you kidding me? SWEET DEE I’m sorry. I drank too much. MAC Good God! All my expensive equipment is ruined because of you! SWEET DEE Can we still run the background check? MAC No, Dee! We’re just going to have to go down to the bar and get rid of this jerkoff ourselves! CHARLIE You know, Schwarzenegger would have never let this happen in Predator. (MORE) (CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

24.

CHARLIE (cont’d) Weathers, maybe. Ventura, probably. But not Schwarzenegger. Definitely not Schwarzenegger. CUT TO: EXT. PADDY’S - NIGHT Mac, Charlie, and Sweet Dee approach the entrance of the bar. Sounds of customers in the bar can be heard even from outside. MAC I’m sick of this dude. I want him gone! CHARLIE So, are we ever going to find Frank? SWEET DEE Shut up, Charlie! We’ve got to take the bar back. Then we can find Frank. Dennis approaches the rest of the gang, still without his pants. Mac, Charlie, and Sweet Dee simply stare at Dennis. DENNIS I don’t want to talk about it. SWEET DEE Oh, we’re going to talk about it. MAC We’re going to talk about it as soon as we get our bar back from this dillhole. INT. PADDY’S - NIGHT The entire gang enters through the front door. There are still many customers in the bar. The gang determinedly makes their way to the bar to find Tom. TOM (friendly) Hey guys! How’s your evening been?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

25.

CHARLIE We want our bar back. TOM What? MAC We want our bar back, dude. We’re tired of being out there in the cruel, cruel world where bad things happen to us, like Charlie missing Frank, Dee losing her job, and Dennis getting raped or whatever happened to him. DENNIS What? I didn’t get raped! MAC Whatever. TOM No, it’s cool guys. You’re the owners. If you don’t want me working here, that’s totally up to you. MAC What? TOM Yeah, I’ll just head out, and it’ll be all cool. Tom begins to gather his things and makes his way out from behind the bar. TOM I just wanted to say to you all, that it’s been a pleasure. DENNIS (to the gang) There’s something very unsatisfying about all of this. MAC Yeah, I expected to have to disarm him and physically remove him from the bar. This just seems anticlimactic.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: CHARLIE He screws up all of our lives and he thinks he can just walk out of here? What kind of person does that? SWEET DEE (angrily, to Tom) You’re fired! TOM (calmly) You can’t fire me. CHARLIE He’s right, Dee. MAC (also calmly) Listen, you’re fired, dude. TOM No problem, thanks guys! Tom cheerfully exits the bar. DENNIS That was not as fun as it should have been. MAC No, not at all. CHARLIE What are we going to do about all of these customers? DENNIS I got it. Dennis moves to the center of the bar. DENNIS (shouting) Attention everyone! I just wanted to let you know that...that guy... Dennis looks over to the rest of the gang. DENNIS (quietly) Did anyone get his name? The gang shrugs and shakes their heads.

26.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: DENNIS (again, shouting) ...that guy’s reign of terror is over, and that Paddy’s Pub is now under its *previous* management!

27.

Immediately hearing the news, patrons begin to quickly clear out of the bar. DENNIS What? Where is everyone going? MAC Don’t leave! You can still drink here! The gang looks on in stunned silence as every single patron exits, leaving only the gang in the bar. CHARLIE Wow, we completely underestimated that guy’s importance. FRANK enters through the front of the bar. FRANK What the hell happened here? Where was everyone going? Charlie immediately rushes to Frank to almost give him a hug, before pulling back at the last second. DENNIS Hey, you jerk. How was your business trip? FRANK Business trip? Shit, I went to Vegas for a week to get rid of you guys. CHARLIE What? You were trying to get rid of us? FRANK Yeah. Except for you, Charlie. I missed the hell out of you. SWEET DEE What about the rest of us? I mean, you used to me and Dennis’ father for crying out loud.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

28.

FRANK I haven’t been your father for like six years, Deandra! MAC So, you just completely abandoned us and the bar to go on a vacation? FRANK Yeah, and I hired a guy to run the bar because I knew you guys would forget. CHARLIE Dude, we all missed you. DENNIS I didn’t miss you. MAC Me neither. SWEET DEE You just basically disowned me, so yeah, I’m going to agree. FRANK I missed you too, Charlie. CHARLIE I have so much cool stuff to tell you about my week! FRANK How about we talk about it after a game of ’Night Crawlers?’ Charlie smiles at Frank, and without saying a word, they both exit the bar. MAC Well, at least we got our bar back. Mac, Dennis, and Dee look around the completely empty bar. CUT TO END CREDITS. THE END
