GRUFF MAN:

Son of a bitch!

He smashes the dog to the ground.

EXT. ALLEY - CONT'D

As the UPS Man/Ace rounds the corner, his shirt opens up at his pot

belly and the Shiatsu's head

sticks out. Ace is gloating.

ACE:

(announcer's voice)

That was a close one, ladies and

gentlemen. Unfortunately, in

every contest, there must be...

A LOOSER!

He jumps into an old beat-up Chevy Bel Air, and lets the dog out onto

the passenger seat.

ACE (CONT'D)

LOOOHOOOSERRRHERRR!

He then pulls open the car's ashtray, and to the dog's delight, it's

filled with puppy chow.

He tries to start the engine but it won't turn over. The dog shoots

him a look.

ACE:

(to dog)

No problem, it gets flooded.

We'll just wait a few seconds.

Ace sits back. SMASH!!!

From Ace's POV we see a Baseball bat shatter the front windshield.

ACE:

Or, we could try it now.

Ace frantically tries to start the car. His new friend continues

around the car beating the living shit

out of it.

ACE:

Oooh, boy.

ACE'S POV

We see the creep wailing on the car in Ace's side view mirror.

ACE:

Warning! Assholes are closer than

they appear!

The dog is barking insanely.

ACE:

(to dog)

You think you can do better?!

The baseball bat is now pummeling the trunk.

ACE:

Wanna give me a push while you're

back there?

BOOM! The back window shatters. Then the car's engine roars to life.

Ace rejoices.

ACE:

FARFEGNUGENNNNN!!!

Ace leaves the bad guy in a cloud of dust and gravel, screaming bloody

murder.

EXT. MIAMI CITY STREETS - DAY

Ace and his new pal speed away freely.
