INT. ROOM - DAY Brian sits on his couch in his cramped living room, smoking MARIJUANA from an empty can of SPRITE. He is seated on a couch situated across from a desk holding a lap-top and television. There's a forceful knock at the front door. From outside ROGER's voice can be hear shouting. ROGER I'm a fucking werewolf, bro!! BRIAN Roger? ROGER Yes it's fucking Roger, let me in! Roger begins frantically pounding on the door. Brian shakes his head in disapproval and frustration. He takes his time getting up to answer the door. When he does Roger rushes past him into the room holding a bundle of rope. Roger is haggard and filthy. He's covered in bruises and scrapes, his hair is a mess and his clothes are shredded. ROGER (CONT'D) I'm a fucking werewolf, bro! Brian stares at Roger, who stands panting, panicked and crazy eyed. Brian's face is a mask of incredulity. BRIAN I have a hard time believing that, Roger. Roger begins darting from direction to direction, pacing back and forth. He violently shakes his head and grabs at clumps of his hair. ROGER No, dude, you don't understand! BRIAN Look- ROGER No, you look! I was smoking with some friends the other night, and as I was walking home I I...changed... BRIAN Changed? ROGER Everything went black. I can barely remember a thing. Just thirst. An ungodly thirst for...murder... BRIAN The preferred beverage of werewolves... ROGER When I woke up I was in an alley. I was covered in cuts and scrapes and my clothes were destroyed... BRIAN Come on, dude. You probably just smoked laced weed like those other times. ROGER One time! BRIAN Several times. Remember when you were on the roof trying to cut pigeons in half with an oar? ROGER So like four times, but not this time! Listen, this morning I read a newspaper. BRIAN That is unusual. ROGER No, dude, there was a story about a murder! BRIAN People are murdered every day. ROGER But where I woke up was like right where they went missing. Brian gazes at Roger. ROGER (CONT'D) Or like 9 miles away- BRIAN Come on, man! ROGER A werewolf can cover 9 miles in minutes on foot! BRIAN On foot? As opposed to what? A segway? ROGER Why would a werewolf ride a segway? Werewolves are way faster than segways... BRIAN Maybe it's crippled. ROGER Werewolves can't be crippled, they have a supernatural healing factor. Brian, these are basic facts, I can't believe I need to explain these things to you. BRIAN This is fucking retarded. ROGER Plus, the corpse was covered in shit! BRIAN What the fuck does that have to do with anything? ROGER Everyone knows werewolves shit on fresh kills. BRIAN You're just making this up! ROGER You can't make up the truth, bro. That's impossible. Now hold onto your dick, cause I got even more proof. Brian runs out the door only to return almost immediately, now holding a bulbous garbage bag in one hand. ROGER (CONT'D) I woke up in an alley surrounded by these. Roger upturns a garbage bag full of dead half-eaten fish and empty fried chicken receptacles. BRIAN What the fuck is wrong with you dude! Don't just pour trash on my floor! ROGER It's not trash! Or, it is...how do you not understand what this means?! BRIAN You smoked angel dust and spent all night eating trash in alleyways across town? It's a miracle you weren't robbed, or murdered or raped. ROGER That's insane. Who would rape a werewolf? Who could rape a werewolf? BRIAN Another werewolf could, or a yeti, or a Minotaur, chupacabra. ROGER Two of those things are imaginary, the only way a chupacabra could ever rape a werewolf would be through subterfuge and trickery, and counting me there are probably only like 15 werewolves in the whole of the Americas, and therefore it would be very unlikely for there to be another in the same proximity. BRIAN But it is possible you were roofied by a chupacabra? ROGER Start take this shit seriously, dude! BRIAN For fucks sake... ROGER Dude, I woke up covered in blood. This shit is for real. BRIAN Could it have been from all those cuts you have all over your body? ROGER No, I must have killed someone. If I concentrate really hard I get flashes. I keep remembering this old homeless guys face...I think I ate him. BRIAN Or maybe you just got your ass kicked by a hobo crack-head. ROGER I've had it up to here with your wild theories, Brian. Stop trying to cloud the issue, my being a werewolf is what we need to be focusing on. Brian glares at Roger. ROGER (CONT'D) Alright man, I'm done trying to convince you, just humor me. Please. Tie me up. If I don't turn into a werewolf you can untie me and I'll go. I promise. Roger puts his hands together as though petitioning for mercy Brian continues to glare at him for several more seconds, but finally relents. BRIAN Fucking fine. Roger sighs in relief. INT. BRIAN'S ROOM - DAY Roger is now roped securely to a wood chair across the room from Brian who fiddles around on his LAPTOP. ROGER So, hypothetically, if my scrotum were to start itching- BRIAN You'd be on your own. Brian takes a hit from his SPRITE pipe and continues messing around on his computer. ROGER Hey, man. Do you think I can get a hit of that? BRIAN Yeah, fine. Brian takes another hit before getting up and walking over to Roger. BRIAN (CONT'D) Hold still. Brian puts the SPRITE CAN WHICH IS A PIPE to Roger's mouth and lights. Roger inhales for a few moments before abruptly coughing, and spewing the contents of the pipe into the air in a puff of weed crumbs and ash. Brian forlornly watches the contents of his can-pipe slowly drift to the groun. BRIAN (CONT'D) Come on, man! Roger coughs a few times. ROGER I'm sorry, bro! BRIAN It was my last bowl! ROGER I said I was sorry! BRIAN You owe me a bowl. ROGER I swear I'll get you back. BRIAN That's what you always say. ROGER Sorry. BRIAN Whatever. Brian tosses the can and sits back down at his desk. With a few clicks starts a movie. From across the room Roger strains to fix his eyes to the inconveniently located monitor. He gazes at Brian for a moment. ROGER Hey, man. You think you could turn the screen my way a little? BRIAN You're still asking for favors? ROGER It'll only take you a second. BRIAN Will you shut up if I do? BRIAN (CONT'D) Yes. I promise. Brian turns the monitor toward Roger. Roger and Brian watch the crocodile related movie for several silent seconds before Roger throws his head back and moans. ROGER This movie sucks, bro! Before Brian can retort there's a knock from his front door. A voice is heard through the door. The voice of BAMBELJACKS. BAMBELJACKS Yo, it's Bambeljacks. BRIAN Come in. Bambeljacks opens the door and steps into the room, his eyes immediately fixing to Roger, bound in a chair on the other end of the room. BAMBELJACKS Holding someone for ransom? BRIAN No. BAMBELJACKS Is it a sex thing? BRIAN NO! ROGER I'm Roger. Roger nods at Bambeljacks. BAMBELJACKS That's rad, bro. BRIAN What do you want? BAMBELJACKS I was actually hoping I could pick up some tree... BRIAN Not a good time. Come back later. BAMBELJACKS Later like...? BRIAN From now. Later from now. In the future, relative to the present...get the fuck out of here. BAMBELJACKS Right. Bambeljacks leaves. Brian turns to Roger. BRIAN You're fucking up my whole day, you know that? ROGER Dude, will you stop giving me shit? I'm sorry that I spoiled the 2 hour masturbation session and X-files marathon you had scheduled, but I'm dealing with serious issues here! BRIAN What the fuck are you talking about? ROGER The psychological torment of knowing you've been stricken with the curse of lycanthropy is unfathomable to you! BRIAN You're what's unfathomable to me. ROGER That's bull-shit, dude. I'm hella fathomable. Brian sighs deeply in exasperation and briefly massages his forehead. BRIAN So, when the fuck are you supposed to turn into a werewolf anyway? ROGER As soon as the moon rises. BRIAN The moon rises? It's fucking 3:30 in the afternoon! ROGER 3:30? You mean I'm gonna be tied in this chair for two more hours?! BRIAN I guess. ROGER What if I have to piss? BRIAN This was your idea! ROGER But it's only mid-day, when have you ever heard of anyone turning into a werewolf at 3:30 in the afternoon? On a Sunday, no less. BRIAN If you didn't have such a poor grasp of the day night/cycle and had a little more foresight, you wouldn't even be asking that question. ROGER Well just untie me and re-tie me in a couple hours. BRIAN You are just determined to piss me off, aren't you? ROGER It'll take you 30 seconds, dude, come on! Stop being such a drama queen. BRIAN Me a drama queen? You're the one who ran in here screaming that he was a werewolf, bleeding and throwing trash everywhere! ROGER This is a legitimate emergency, it's more than reasonable for me to be a little flustered. BRIAN A legitimate emergency? ROGER People don't turn into werewolves every day! BRIAN You're not a werewolf! You're a suggestible, simple-minded, stoner with an inferior ability to not smoked laced pot, and a generally deficient sense of the difference between fantasy and reality. ROGER It will be easier for you if you just untie me. I won't bother you again until sundown. Honest. Brian shakes his head. BRIAN Fine. Whatever. Brian grudgingly walks over to the chair and begins straining at the knots, but failing to undo them. He grows increasingly agitated before finally throwing his hands up. BRIAN (CONT'D) Fuck this! I can't untie this shit! ROGER What? What kind of knot did you use? BRIAN There are different kinds of knots? ROGER Yeah, bro, there's like a million knots! What kind did you use? BRIAN I don't know...custom? ROGER There's no such thing as a custom knot! You gotta get me out of here, man. I'm gonna piss. BRIAN Are you fucking serious? ROGER Wait, I know what we can do...do you have any bottles? Brian stares at Roger, face twitching with the sheer force of annoyance. BRIAN You know what, man...fuck this. I'm going to get something to eat. ROGER Oh, sweet. Were you thinking like fajitas...? BRIAN You know what, fajitas sound awesome. ROGER Yes! Just get back quick so I can eat them before I turn into a werewolf. I still have to pee, too... BRIAN Oh, did I give the impression I was getting you something? ROGER What? BRIAN Yeah, fuck you, Roger. Brian walks out the front door, giving Roger the finger. ROGER You're gonna look like an ass-hole when I turn into a werewolf! EXT. OUTSIDE BRIAN'S ROOM - NIGHT Bambeljacks lies in a pool of blood, covered in claw marks, outside of Brian's front door, which has been busted open. The chair inside has been crushed and the rope ripped apart. Brian stands over Bambeljack's corpse with a bag of left-over fajitas. BRIAN ...Balls... A distant, unearthly, howl echoes through the night.
