5 females: Genie, Girl, Zombie, Woman [vampire], Jesi
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
(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)
What do you want?
What? Who are you?
(DIRK lowers the cd and sees the GENIE)
I'm a genie.
(She waves her hands and more smoke appears)
A genie? So... does that mean I get three wishes?
Yeah, yeah. You know the drill.
Cool. Oh, I know what I want. I want the perfect
As you wish...
(GENIE disappears into the smoke
[exits] and GIRL
appears, acting very young,
licking a lollipop and jumping up and down excited)
Hi, let's play.
(DIRK turns looking for the GENIE)
No, no, no.
(DIRK appears and makes
GIRL disappear [exits])
You did ask for a girl.
I want someone much older than
As you wish...
(GENIE disappears [exits] and

(GENIE makes ZOMBIE disappear
You're down to one wish... make
What? Oh, man.
Okay. I want the perfect woman is my age, beautiful and sharp.
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)
Want to neck?
(DIRK smiles big and turns and
sees her fangs come at him. He screams)
(WOMAN disappears and GENIE
appears and sighs)
You ruined all my wishes!
Wishes are not the key
(GENIE disappears and
DIRK falls into a chair. JESI returns. She nervously approaches
DIRK and touches him on the shoulder and he jumps)
I'm sorry. Have you seen my keys?
Here they are.
Hey, what's your name?
Jesi. And you're DIRK.
You work in the lab in the mornings huh?
Uh-huh. You want my email? In case you need to
something... about the lab.
No one ever comes in the lab during my shift. You want
to stay and hang out?
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])
What was that?
Some computer virus.
I know this great anti-virus software... let me show
It works like magic.
