THE BOY WHO CRIED GENIE

by D. M. Larson

CAST OF CHARACTERS:

1 male: Dirk

5 females: Genie, Girl, Zombie, Woman [vampire], Jesi

LOCATION:

University Computer Lab

(INT. Computer Lab. Day.

DIRK, a cool, confident guy, enters the lab.  JESI, a shy, nerdy gal, looks like she wants to talk to him but can only manage a whisper)

JESI

Hi.

(DIRK doesn't hear her and goes to a computer to start work.  JESI rushes out all embarrassed.  DIRK finds a cd stuck in the computer.  It comes out and it is glowing [Light shines on it].  He looks at it and rubs it.  A puff of smoke [fog machine] flows in and a GENIE steps in with it)

GENIE

What do you want?

DIRK

What?  Who are you?

(DIRK lowers the cd and sees the GENIE)

GENIE

I'm a genie.

(She waves her hands and more smoke appears)

DIRK

A genie?  So... does that mean I get three wishes?

GENIE

Yeah, yeah.   You know the drill.

DIRK

Cool.  Oh, I know what I want.  I want the perfect girl.

GENIE

As you wish...

(GENIE disappears into the smoke [exits] and GIRL appears, acting very young, licking a lollipop and jumping up and down excited)

GIRL

Hi, let's play. 

(DIRK turns looking for the GENIE)

DIRK

No, no, no. 

(DIRK appears and makes GIRL disappear [exits])

GENIE

You did ask for a girl.

DIRK

I want someone much older than that.

GENIE

As you wish... 

(GENIE disappears [exits] and ZOMBIE appears)

DIRK

Not that old!

(GENIE makes ZOMBIE disappear [exits]) 

GENIE

You're down to one wish... make it good.

DIRK

What?  Oh, man.  Okay.  I want the perfect woman is my age, beautiful and sharp.

GENIE

You got it. 

(GENIE disappears and a beautiful WOMAN appears.  She comes up to him and he smiles.  She crosses behind him.  She pushes back her hair and we see her pointed ears and she bares her fangs)

WOMAN

Want to neck?

(DIRK smiles big and turns and sees her fangs come at him.  He screams)

DIRK

Genie!

(WOMAN disappears and GENIE appears and sighs)

DIRK (cont.)

You ruined all my wishes!

GENIE

Wishes are not the key to your happiness. 

(GENIE disappears and DIRK falls into a chair.  JESI returns.  She nervously approaches DIRK and touches him on the shoulder and he jumps) 

JESI

I'm sorry.  Have you seen my keys?

DIRK

Keys?

JESI

Here they are.

DIRK

Hey, what's your name?

JESI

Jesi.  And you're DIRK.

DIRK

You work in the lab in the mornings huh?

JESI

Uh-huh.  You want my email?  In case you need to ask me something... about the lab.

DIRK

No one ever comes in the lab during my shift.  You want to stay and hang out? 

JESI

Sure, I'd like that.

(GENIE appears on the computer screen and winks [this can be a video on a large computer screen or a projected image onto a screen - if neither of these are possible you can end on the above line])

JESI (cont.)

What was that?

DIRK

Some computer virus.

JESI

I know this great anti-virus software... let me show you.  It works like magic.
