FREDDIE
I don’t care if it’s the from the
House of Alice Cooper. Your Uncle
Eddie’s right. You’re not going
anywhere in that, whatever it is.
Although it certainly does smell
delicious.
JERICA
You and Uncle Eddie never let me
have any fun.
FREDDIE
And as it should be. Now, go change,
young lady.
JERICA EXITS POUTING.
FREDDIE
Yes, Mom. Your adoring first born
has flown the emporium.
AMANDA
And it’s about time, too. I was
starting to get worried with all
that talk about staying here and
helping out in the store perma-
nently. Next!
FREDDIE
Gee, Mom. Why do I get the
distinct impression you’ve always
liked Eddie best?
FREDDIE TURNS TO GRAMPY, GEORGE.


FREDDIE
George, Grampy. It’s been days
since we’ve heard anything.
GRAMPY
Oh, he’s all right, Fred. Just
let him sulk a little while longer
and when he finally realizes you
were only trying to help, he’ll
come right home and kick your *!$%@.
FREDDIE
Cassandra’s already had that lovely
little honor.
FREDDIE RUBS HIS GLUTES.
FREDDIE (CONT’T)
If I didn’t any know better, I’d
swear on a stack of your Bibles
she’s this year’s starting
kicker for the New York Giants.
GRAMPY
Patriots were already here scout-
ing out her assets, if you get my
drift. Just a little FYI.
GEORGE
Well, Fred. Anything’s a lot better
than getting a few lumps of hot coal
down your trousers.
FREDDIE
And don’t I know it.


GRAMPY
Thou shalt not covet thy brother’s
girlfriends. And that comes
directly from the man upstairs.
FREDDIE
Shouldn’t that be thou shalt not
covet they neighbor’s wife, Grampy?
GRAMPY
And brother Edward thought my
sermons were getting “just a little
too preachy”.
FREDDIE
They are. George. Can I borrow
a credit card? I gotta go bring
old what’s his face back home.
GEORGE RELUCTANTLY HANDS FREDDIE A CARD.
FREDDIE
Thanks.
GEORGE
And it better be economy class.
FREDDIE
All right, All right. Tightwad.
GEORGE
And a damned good one.
FREDDIE HEADS OUT.
FREDDIE
There goes the hot towels and
champagne.
Scene L
EXT. SNOWY RIDGE ON THE HIMALAYAS - DAY (Eddie, Team of Mountain climbers)


WE SEE A PANORAMIC VIEW OF THE MOUNTAINS, EDDIE AND HIS MOUNTAIN CLIMBING TEAM TRUDGING UPWARD IN A RAGING SNOWSTORM. WIND’S HOWLING. SNOW’S FLYING ALL AROUND THEM.
NEXT, WE SEE A FULL SHOT OF A WORLD MAP AND A MINIATURE PLANE FLYING OVER IT ENROUTE TO THE HIMALAYAS.
Scene M
INT. FREDDIE’S CHARTERED PLANE, COCKPIT AND PASSENGER AREA - DAY (Freddie, Airplane Pilot)
FREDDIE’S RELAXING, ENJOYING A COCKTAIL, LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW AT THE SNOWSTORM BELOW.
FREDDIE
Look at that view. There’s nothing
but ice and snow and rock for miles.
PILOT
It’s kind of like looking for
Shangri-La. There’s nothing quite
like flying over the Himalayas in a
private chartered plane.
FREDDIE
With a trusty shot of Jack Daniels
at your side to steady the nerves.
George is going to kill me when he
gets this bill.
BIG BUMP.
PILOT
Whoa. Steady, girl.
FREDDIE’S SHAKEN.
PILOT (CONT’D)
That was a rough one.
FREDDIE
(calmly) Okay, if you say so. And
the parachutes are located where?

PILOT
Relax. It was just a little turbu-
lence. Nothing to worry about.
FREDDIE
Nothing to worry about. I add fun-
eral expenses to this credit card,
your plane will be looking like the
Starship Enterprise after Ricardo
Montelban got through with it in
The Wrath of Kahn.
A BIGGER BUMP.
FREDDIE
Don’t tell me that was just
turbulence.
PLANE ENGINES BEGIN TO FALTER.
PILOT
Uh-oh.
FREDDIE
Uh-oh? What do you mean, uh-oh?
PILOT
I meant, oh no!
FREDDIE
Why do I suddenly get the feeling
we’re in a Ronald Coleman movie?
Get us out of here! NOW!
PILOT
(on radio) Sky Pilot to Angel
Wings. Mayday. Mayday. We need
to make an emergency landing.
Over.


FREDDIE
Maybe Grampy’s right. Maybe there
is a God, and He’s finally getting
back at me for all the terrible
things I’ve ever done to Eddie. I
thought you said this was going to
be like being in James Hilton’s
Lost Horizon, not Ernest Hemmingway’s
For Whom the Bell Tolls!
EXT. PLANE OVER THE HIMALAYAS - DAY
CAMERA CAPTURES PLANE MAKING A SLOW DECENT IN THE SNOWSTORM AS
WE HEAR A LOUD SCREAMING OVER THE MOUNTAINS.
EXT. SNOWY RIDGE, ON THE HIMALAYAS - DAY (Eddie, Team of Mountain climbers)
EDDIE AND HIS MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS CONTINUE ON IN THE SNOWSTORM.
EDDIE
Can you see the summit yet?
TEAM MEMBER #1
I can’t see anything. It’s a
complete whiteout.
TEAM MEMBER #2
If this is global warming, I’d
like to see what global chilling’s
like.
TEAM MEMBER #3
Who’s idea what this anyway? It’s
like the mega-snowstorm scene from
Lord of the Rings.
TEAM MEMBER #4
I’ll give you three guesses.


EDDIE
Thanks for the vote of confidence,
guys.
TEAM MEMBER #1
You’re welcome, dumb *!$%@.
TEAM MEMBER #2
Can we go back now? It’s freezing
out here.
EDDIE
No, no. Keep going. I’m not far
enough away from my family yet.
TEAM MEMBER #1
Excellent decision, Frodo.
SUDDENLY WE HEAR A FIERCE HOWLING AND A ROAR.
EDDIE
What the hell was that?
TEAM MEMBER #3
I hope it’s not what I think it is.
ANOTHER HOWLING AND A ROAR.
TEAM MEMBER #4
I wouldn’t put any money on that bet
just yet.
EDDIE
Hey! You’re a poet and don’t know.
Just like me.
WE HEAR ONE MORE HOWLING AND A VERY SCARY ROAR.
TEAM MEMBER #2
Let’s get outa here!

TEAM MEMBER #4
I hear ya, bro. Loud and clear.
Last one down the mountain’s a
gourmet meal.
MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS HURRY DOWN LEAVING EDDIE STRANDED.
EDDIE
Guys. We’re not at the top of
Mt. Everest yet. Where’re you
going?
ANOTHER HOWLING AND A ROAR. SUDDENLY, WE SEE A BIG BALL OF WHITE FUR AND GIANT TEETH HEADING IN EDDIE’S DIRECTION.
EDDIE REACTS.
EDDIE
My, what big teeth you have,
Grandma. HELP! GET ME OUTA HERE!
SUDDENLY, THE EARTH BEGINS TO QUAKE, SNOW CRUMBLES BENEATH EDDIE’S FEET.
EDDIE
Oh, God. Grampy, you were right.
I’m not ready to meet my Maker.
AVALANCHE!
HUGE CHUNKS OF TUMBLING SNOW FALL EVERYWHERE!
FADE OUT.
FADE IN:
EXT. SNOWY RIDGE ON THE HIMALAYAS - DAY, SOME TIME LATER
AVALANCHE IS OVER. EDDIE CLIMBS OUT OF A HOLE FROM A PILE OF FRESHLY FALLEN SNOWBANK OUT ONTO A RIDGE.
WE HEAR CARIBBEAN KETTLE DRUM MUSIC PLAYING.
A SURPRISED EDDIE FINDS HIMSELF THE CRASHER OF A BARBEQUE BEING HELD BY MITCH THE YETI AND HIS YETI FAMILY. MITCH PLAYS CHEF AT THE “BARBIE” WHILE FREDDIE IS ALL STRETCHED OUT ON A BEACH CHAIR, “BASKING IN THE SUN” LIKE HE’S ON A BEACH IN THE CARIBBEAN AND ENJOYING A MAI TAI COCKTAIL. HE SPOTS EDDIE HANGING ONTO THE SNOWBANK.

FREDDIE
Hey, bro! Come join the party.
You’ll never guess who I hired
to help out in Grampy’s store.
We can go back to being producers
now.
EDDIE
Really, Fred? REALLY?
INT. ZANDERGRAMPY’S EMPORIUM -- DAY, DAYS LATER (Freddie, Eddie, Amanda, Amelia, Grampy, Malachi, Jerica, George the Elf, Cassandra, Veronica, Eleanor, Mitch the Yeti and his family, Lucky, The Crystal Ball Sprite)
STORE’S BUSY. EVERYONE’S BUSTLING AROUND HELPING CUSTOMERS, TAKING ORDERS, ETC.
PHONE RINGS. EDDIE ANSWERS.
EDDIE
Zandergrampy’s and Mitch Reindeer
Harness and all things Santa
Emporium. How may I help you?
EDDIE HANDS OVER THE RECEIVER TO MITCH THE YETI.
EDDIE
It’s for you.
MITCH
Mitch speaking.
FREDDIE ENTERS. HE SEES GRAMPY WITH GEORGE AS HAPPY AS A CLAM.
FREDDIE
Looks like we made Grampy a
pretty happy camper.
EDDIE
I have to admit it, you did good,
Fred.
EDDIE LOOKS OVER AT AMANDA AT HER COMPUTER WITH A CUSTOMER.


EDDIE
Mom looks pretty happy, too.
FREDDIE
Which is a first. And what about
you? You and Veronica rekindling
that old flame?
EDDIE PULLS OUT AN ENGAGEMENT RING, SHOW FREDDIE.
EDDIE
What do you think?
FREDDIE
I would have gone for dinner and
a movie. But jewelry’s nice, too.
EDDIE
You know, Fred, one of these days …
WE SUDDENLY HEAR SINGING.
AMANDA (V.O.)
Here she comes, Miss America.
JERICA ENTERS ALL DECKED OUT IN LIGHT BLUE AND WHITE YETI ATTIRE AS ABBY BOMINBLE FROM MONSTER HIGH.
JERICA
This is it, everyone! Aren’t
you just inspired?
FREDDIE
Inspired isn’t the word.
EDDIE
Whatever are we going to do with
that niece of ours?
FREDDIE
Amelia will be home in a couple
of weeks.


FREDDIE/EDDIE
Let’s let Amelia handle it.
EDDIE
Okay, everyone. Christmas will
be here before we know it. Back
to work.
WE HEAR A BIG RASPBERRY SOUND OFF IN THE BACKGROUND.
EDDIE
Not funny, Grampy.
AS EVERYONE BEGINS HUSTLING AND BUSTLING AGAIN, EXCEPT FOR FREDDIE WHO DECIDES TO QUIETLY SNEAK OUT THE BACK DOOR, WE …
FADE OUT.
END ACT TWO
TAG
FADE IN:
INT. RAVEN’S BEDROOM – NIGHT (Raven, Oliver, Jaimie)
OLIVER AND JAIMIE ARE FAST ALEEP.
RAVEN
And Eddie and Freddie and Cassan-
dra and Veronica and Amanda and
Amelia and Malachi and George and
Grampy and Mitch lived happily
ever after—NOT! The End. Finally!
RAVEN SEES HER SIBS ASLEEP. SHE COVERS THEM WITH A BLANKET. SHE HEARS A KNOCK ON HER DOOR. DOOR OPENS. IT’S WOLF, HER BOYFRIEND, LOOKING LIKE A CARBON COPY OF WOLVERINE.
WOLF
Are you ready for our date?
RAVEN
All set to go.


ARM IN ARM.
WOLF
Will it be Vin Diesel or Von Helsing
tonight?
RAVEN
What do you think? Vin Diesel,
of course.
THEY EXIT HAPPY.
THE END
FADE OUT.

PostPosted: Tue Sep 20, 2016 6:40 am    Post subject: What a dazzling z shocker! Reply with quote

Wow........due to overwhelming personal stress in my life that has affected my ability to concentrate on lengthy reading, this is the first time I've read through all the work she has done on the Z story.

Basically the original story I wrote has been completey changed into something entirely different.

A lot of it, I think is very clever and funny with new characters added. I think it has film potential. What I would like by it being posted on this particular site where so much was originally inspired, is for comments to be made on what works and what does not, so any changes to make it better could be made.

This particular script is now the work of two writers looking for advice and entertainment connections to get it filmed.

Thanks for all suggestions and recommendations!
