My Work In Progress

Scene 1
Credits roll while these clips are being shown. Movie starts with a series of short clips of two brothers (Tim and Alex) doing miscellaneous activities (fishing, playing football, playing video games, ext.). The next clip is of a wedding, where Tim is getting married to a girl named Cassandra. Alex is the best man. The camera pans over to him while the two are making their vows. He thinks back to before the ceremony when he and his brother were talking.

Alex
So, does this mean that I wonít have any time to hang out with you anymore?Ē
Tim
Of course not, she may become my wife, but you will always be my brother.Ē

Scene 2
Tim and Cassandra finish the ceremony with a kiss, which fades into a shot of the reception. Alex stands and gives a toast.

Alex
Wow, what a day. When Tim asked me to be the best man the first thing I though was, ďOh crap! I have to give the toast.Ē And I though about what I was going to say for the longest time. I had even typed up a big, mushy speech but I canít remember a word of it. I guess all I have to say is that you two are the best couple I have ever seen. A real match made in heaven. I speak for everyone when I say that we wish you the best life together and that nothing will keep you from the love that you two share. So, hereís to loosing a brother, gaining a sister, and having fun doing it all in the same day.Ē

Everyone claps and says ďhere, hereĒ as the newlyweds look at each other with a starry eyed look.

Scene 3
The applauses fade to a series of miscellaneous clips of the newlyweds arguing over different issues. In these clips Tim is usually the one that gives in to his wife.

Cassandra
I canít stand it anymore! I donít want to put up with this house any more.
Tim
Come on, Cassandra. You know we canít afford anything else.
Cassandra
I donít care; I am willing to live anywhere but here.

Cassandra
Pizza again? I come home after working all day and all there is to eat is pizza?
Tim
Hey, I work 11 hours every day to buy you this pizza.
Cassandra
Bull crap! All you do with your money is spend it on games and movies.
Tim
If I could I would make you a nice dinner. But I just donít have the time.
Cassandra
You have time now.
Tim
sighs All right, Iíll have something ready in a minute.

Cassandra
No, no, no! I donít want your friends over tonight.
Tim
I havenít had time to spend with them in a few weeks.
Cassandra
I donít care. When you married me you gave up all rights to spending time with your friends.
Tim
AlrightÖ hey guys, maybe weíll do this some other night.

Cassandra
You still havenít fixed the sink!
Tim
I told you that I havenít the slightest idea how to fix a sink.
Cassandra
Oh, then lets just blow a couple hundred bucks on hiring a plumber. Of course we wonít eat for a few months.
Tim
Now you know that money is not that tight. We can hire a plumber.
Cassandra
No, you know we donít have the money. Youíre just looking for an excuse to get out of having to do it. Youíre so fin useless. I have no idea why I married you.

The next shot is of Cassandra packing her things and leaving.

Tim
Come on, Cassandra. Donít go.
Cassandra
Listen here; I put up with your crap day after day and Iím sick of it. Iím gonna go find someone who can actually take care of me.
Tim
I have taken care of you.
Cassandra
You have, have you? I donít think so, cause you donít even know how to take care of yourself.
Tim
Thatís because I have been to busy taking care of you.

At this she gets mad and leaves.

Scene 4
Tim goes to his parentís house to talk with them. Alex overhears the conversation.

Tim
Öand she just left.
Mom
Did you do anything to upset her?
Tim
No, she got in one of her moods and stormed off. It was like she though that everything I was saying was meant to be a rap on her, but I was trying to be as nice as I could.
Dad
Thatís just your problem; you were too nice to her. You give in so much that you donít know how to argue your side.
Tim
Oh, arguing would have helped so much.
Mom
No, it wouldnít of. You did the right thing, just give her some time, sheíll come back.
Tim
I donít know, but she seemed really mad this time. I just feel like what she said was true. That I am no good, I canít take care of myself, and that I donít deserve her.
Dad
Thatís a load of crap. Sheís the one that doesnít deserve you.
Tim
Iím kinda tiered. Iím gonna go home and think about it for a minute.
Mom
Alright, but remember; we are always here is you need someone to talk to.

Tim smiles and walks out the door. Alex walks down the stairs shortly after.

Alex
Hey, Iím going over to Timís. He needs a brother to talk to right now.
Mom
Alright, but donít try to push anything out of him. Just let him talk to you.
Alex
I know, Iíve done this before. Trust me, Iím a pro.

Scene 5
Alex is walking through the town that they live in. As he is walking he sees his girl friend (Sarah) ahead of him. He catches up to her and they greet each other warmly.

Alex
Hey baby. they kiss

Oh, Tim and Cassandra got in another fight. Sarah
That sucks.
Alex
Yeah, Iím heading over there now to talk to him. You wanna come along?
Sarah
Sure.

Scene 6
As they are approaching Timís house, a loud gun shot rings out through the streets. They both look quite stunned. They run to Tim's house to see what happened. Alex races up stairs and enters his brotherís room. He suddenly stops as he sees Timís body lying on the bed bleeding from the side of the skull. Sarah walks up behind him and screams as she sees Tim's body. Alex grabs her and pulls her away from the room.

Alex
Listen to me, listen! Calm down, calm down. Go down stairs and call 911.

She walks down stairs, and calls while Alex stands in the doorway looking at his brotherís body. Sarah comes back and tells Alex that the paramedics are on their way.

Scene 7
The two of them go down stairs and sit on the porch to the house. The paramedics come and take the corpse away. A police officer questions Alex about what happened.

Officer
Hey you, are you related to him?
Alex
Yeah, Iím his brother.
Officer
What happened?
Alex
Me and Sarah were just on the way to his house to talk to him. We turned the corner and heard a loud bang. I ran into the house and saw him just lying there.
Officer
Do you know of any reason why he might do this?
Alex
Yeah; him and Cassandra got in a fight today.
Officer
Whoís Cassandra?
Alex
Thatís his wife. She got all pissed about something and left. He seemed really down about it, but I didnít think he would do something like this.
Officer
AlrightÖ how about I give you a ride home?
Alex
What? No, we canít! Mom and dad will find out. They canít find out.
Officer
Well, we have to tell them sometime. Come on, letís go.
Alex
Can Sarah come?
Officer
Sure.

Scene 8
The officer drives up to Alex's house. When they get out of the cruiser his mom and dad rush out of the house.

Mom
Alex! What happened? Did you go to Timís house?

Alex just walks by them with Sarah in his arms.

Officer
Maíam, sir, can I talk to you both for a second? We got a call several minutes ago; some people heard a gun shot at 103 North Wills Street Mom
Thatís Timís house. Oh my god, what happened? Officer
Iím sorry maíam but your son has shot himself. Iím afraid heís dead. Iím very sorry to have to tell you.

Alex goes to his room and sits down on his bed with Sarah. He starts crying, and Sarah comforts him. He looks up to see his mom and dad standing in the doorway to his room. They are also crying. Scene fades.

Scene 9
Scene opens on a funeral setting. A minister is giving the eulogy while solemn faces stare forward. The camera pans to Alex who looks quite upset, almost angry. Sarah is sitting next to him. The back door to the room opens and Cassandra walks in. Everyone is quite surprised at her appearance. Alex looks back with anger in his eyes. Cassandra sits in the back row of chairs. The minister goes on with his address, while Alex looks as if he is getting more and more angry. Sarah notices this.

Sarah
Hey, donít worry about it. She may have done something wrong but that doesnít mean that you need to. Sheíll get what she deserves. Alex stands up and turns toward Cassandra Alex, where are you going? Donít make a scene.
Alex
walking toward Cassandra Leave now!
Cassandra
Excuse me?
Alex
Get out of here! You have no right to be here. No fin right!
Cassandra
I think I do have a right to be here, I was his wife.
Alex
Yeah, right up until the day you left him. Youíre the reason why he did this. He gave up everything for you and you treated him like crap. This is all your fault. You killed him, you fin killed him.
Cassandra
Donít pin this crap on me! He was already unstable; he could have done this at any moment.
Alex
Bull crap, before he married you he would have never done something like this, no matter how bad things got. You came along and fed up his life. Youíre the reason why he died.
Cassandra
What ever, I donít need to put up with this crap.
Alex
You mean like he did for two years. All you did was complain about every fin thing. He always gave in to you, and still you treated him like crap. Heís not the one that deserved to die.
Cassandra
WhatÖ are you threatening me? she stands up
Alex
So what if I am?
Cassandra
Youíre just as crazy as he wasÖ must run in the family.

At this Alex attacks her. He pushes her down and starts to choke her. Several people come to pull him off.

Cassandra
half winded You fin maniac. Iíll have you put away for the rest of your fin life.

She walks out of the building. A few guys are restraining Alex while the rest of the people look on with shock. Alex calms down and falls to the ground crying. He looks up at Sarah.

Alex
Donít look at me like that. Please donít look at me like that Sarah.

Sarah turns and walks away. People back off from him as the scene fades.
