Script #1 - Cafe




A woman sits in a chic cafe somewhere in western Europe. A waiter walks up to the table and places an espresso in front of her.

          Madame

Excuse me.

          Waiter

Yes, Madame?

          Madame

Could you please ask that man over there to stop living?

          Waiter

Certainly Madame.

          Madame

Grazie.

          Waiter

I'm sorry Madame, but the man refuses your request.

          Madame

Oh, how drole.

          Waiter

Quite drole madame.

          Madame

Well, if that man refuses my request then may I ask of you another request?

          Waiter

Of course Madame.

          Madame

Take this pistol and make it so that man stops living.

          Waiter

Of course, Madame.

          Madame

Merci.

          Waiter

Madame?

          Madame
Yes?

          Waiter

I followed your request, but as it were... that man is not alive.

          Madame

Oh?

          Waiter

Yes. In all truth, death is sitting at that table.

          Madame

Oh? Well, then send him my regards.

          Waiter

Madame?

          Madame
Yes?

          Waiter

He wishes for you to join him.


           END



The point: Everyone meets death.
