Author's Note:

I beg your indulgence: my first ever 'script'.

I've been looking to do something that would top 'The Key' and 'Intervention Pending'. I'm hoping this is it. Big thanks to L'il Sis and the person who made me take this whole script thing seriously. She knows who she is.

Ooh lookie, is that a Fourth Wall? We'll soon be through that…

TEASER:

WHITE WRITING OVER BLACK SCREEN--

Bobby Singer's yard.

INTERIOR FRONT HALL - NIGHT

Close-up of the inside of the door under the spy hole. Camera pulls back as door opens.

DEAN enters, smiling and carrying apparently empty cup of take-out coffee. Keeps door open with foot as he leans to wooden table nearby and puts cup on it.

DEAN

I can't believe it just stood there waiting to be shot in the head, man. Easiest hunt we ever been on.

SAM comes in and shuts door. Watches DEAN put keys in pocket and pull off jacket.

SAM

You call that easy? Thing near took your head off.

DEAN looks affronted but throws jacket over arm, walking off toward kitchen. SAM follows.

DEAN

[Shouts]

Bobby! We're back!

[Over shoulder to SAM]

I wus just lulling him into a sense of false security, Sammy.

SAM'S eyebrows raise but he says nothing. Crosses to kettle and checks for water before putting it on stove and lighting it. Looks to see DEAN collapsing on sofa and relaxing into it. SAM pulls cell phone out of right pocket, where DEAN can't see it.

DEAN

[calls]

Bobby!

[to SAM]

Is he even in this episode? Or are we using his place without him again?

SAM

No, he's in the episode. Trust me, I've bothered to look at the whole script this week.

DEAN considers this, looking at the room.

DEAN

So what we doing now?

SAM is typing at his cell phone with his thumb.

SAM

Now? Right now?

DEAN

Now. Right now.

SAM

Right now we're going through the teaser section of the show. Don't worry, in less that three minutes the entire premise of tonight's excitement will be revealed. We'll just have to wait and see what it is.

DEAN yawns and lifts his wrist to check the time.

DEAN

Well could they get a wiggle on? It's nearly ten and there's gotta be a bar or something close-by. We just put down a werewolf, we should celebrate a little.

SAM smiles an EVIL smile. He slides the phone back in his pocket, unseen.

SAM

That's the only reason to celebrate?

DEAN looks at the ceiling. He considers and SAM waits. He appears to be trying to control his impatience.

DEAN

Can't think of anything else right now. What d'you think Bobby's up to?

SAM forces a smile and looks at kettle.

SAM

He must have popped out. He did say he was busy, remember. I could call him, see where he's got to, see if he's bringing food?

DEAN stretches and appears to be getting comfortable. Then he sits up suddenly.

DEAN

Nah. We should go out and eat proper food. I could murder a steak right now.

SAM laughs suddenly. DEAN looks surprised.

SAM

Nice image after what we've done tonight, dude.

DEAN is amused. He gets up and wanders off, presumably to find a bathroom.

Camera on SAM. Pulls phone from his pocket and presses numbers quickly. Puts phone to ear. Small puffs of steam come from kettle next to him as he mumbles to himself. Then--

SAM

Bobby, you ready?

Slight noise in response from phone. SAM grins and nods.

SAM

Will do, Bobby. Thanks.

SAM cuts call and shoves phone in pocket quickly.

DEAN re-appears. Looks at SAM suspiciously. Sam pretends not to notice, starts looking for mugs and coffee jar.

DEAN

You say somethin'?

SAM looks up as if surprised.

SAM

What? No. Yeah. Bobby just called - he says to stay put. Says he needs our help with something.

DEAN grunts, not listening. SAM nods and looks round at him as he turns gas off under kettle. DEAN is back on the sofa, yawning.

DEAN

Well did he say what he wanted? D'you think he could bring some food with him?

SAM

I'm sure he will if he knows you're here.

DEAN grunts non-commitedly.

SAM grins, casting a sly look at his brother. Spoons coffee powder into mugs, leans over for kettle. Fills mugs with hot water and stirs.

SAM

He's nearly here, anyways.

DEAN grunts again. SAM carries coffee over and hands one mug to DEAN.

SAM

I can see you're really interested in helping him.

DEAN looks at SAM. He takes the mug gratefully.

DEAN

When I smell food I promise I'll be all ears.

SAM

I don't doubt.

SAM looks away and we see his smile. DEAN is looking at coffee in his hands.

SAM sits on chair by sofa, blowing on his coffee. Boys sit in silence as they attack the drinks.

SOUND OF A CAR OUTSIDE.

SAM hides a grin; DEAN is finishing coffee, oblivious.

SOUND OF DOOR OPENING.

BOBBY (off-screen)

Sam? You gonna help me in with this?

SAM gets up and crosses in front of DEAN to go to door, out of shot. Camera on DEAN as he tips up coffee mug to drain it eagerly. He gets up to go to the jar of coffee powder again.

New camera on SAM as he stops at threshold to room. Camera over SAM'S shoulder shows us two people stopped in front of him: it's BOBBY SINGER and MISSOURI MOSELY.

BOBBY is smiling slightly. MISSOURI is positively glowing with happiness.

BOBBY

Look who I found wandering round the yard.

MISSOURI

Oh, Sam! Come here, honey.

MISSOURI grabs SAM in huge hug. New camera over Missouri's shoulder to see SAM very happy to hug her back.

DEAN (off-screen)

Damn! Is that Missouri?

Camera from SAM'S point of view again. SAM and MISSOURI part and she bustles past him into the room. Camera from SAM's point of view is left looking at BOBBY. BOBBY lifts his hand and makes an 'a-ok' sign with his thumb and index finger. He also winks. Camera on SAM as he grins and steps back.

New camera from BOBBY'S point of view. He sees MISSOURI enveloping DEAN in big hug, SAM putting hands in back pockets.

MISSOURI

I was so worried about you! And here you are, large as life!

She puts her hands to DEAN's face, squeezing and shaking slightly.

MISSOURI

And all new-lookin' and handsome all over again.

She shakes again and pinches DEAN'S cheeks as if he's five years old. DEAN puts his hands to her wrists and pulls her hands off his face with slight suspicion.

DEAN

Whut is this? You gonna be nice till I turn round, then boot me in the ass?

MISSOURI looks angry, then hurt.

MISSOURI

Don't you be givin' me any o' your lip, boy. Not when I came all this way with your uncle Bobby to help you celebrate.

DEAN lets go of her hands. She puts her hands on her hips expectantly. DEAN looks puzzled: patented look involving triangular, quirked-up eyebrows and mouth in small 'o' shape.

DEAN

Celebrate the werewolf thing? How'd you find out so fa--. Aww, I get it - psychic, right?

MISSOURI sighs and folds her arms slowly.

MISSOURI

[sad]

Don't tell me you've forgotten.

She stares at him. DEAN looks blank. MISSOURI is sad.

MISSOURI

You have. Oh honey. It's January 24th! It's your birthday! We've come to celebrate you turnin' thirty!

Camera sweeps round: BOBBY smiles maliciously. SAM grins with plain happiness. MISSOURI appears sympathetic.

MISSOURI

It's gonna be a blast - what could go wrong?

Camera stops on DEAN. His face is part shocked, part afraid.

MUSIC CHORD SLAMS TO BLACK SCREEN.

So I didn't think the formatting would be a problem till I saw it was spacing out name+dialogue lines. Can't find a way to stop it - hope it doesn't make it hard to read!
