Life as a House script
Synopsis: "Life as a House" is the poignant, often humorous journey of one man who decides to tear down his house -- and winds up rebuilding the world around him. From the day he picks up his sledgehammer, George Monroe embarks on a grand adventure that will shatter expectations and build a foundation for many different dreams among his family and neighbors.

Robin stops at the door, trying to figure out why her son is

sitting in a pile of his own clothes. Ryan and Adam join

her, looking equally perplexed.

EXT. GEORGE NELSON'S CUL-DE-SAC - MORNING

George's dog, GUSTER, is doing his business on the lawn of a

modern day robber baron, DAVID DOKOS, who exits his house

with a briefcase. He hops into his Mercedes and proceeds to

chase Guster straight across his well-manicured grass.

Guster easily escapes death and runs off. George walks out

of his shack as David hops the curb, flips him off and drives

away. George waves goodbye.

GEORGE:

Stick it up your ass! Have a nice day.

(glancing around)

Guster!

Guster runs to his side as Colleen rushes out of her house.

COLLEEN:

This has got to stop!

GEORGE:

He escaped. He's going back in.

COLLEEN:

Does it give you some sort of perverse

pleasure to expose your...penis in plain

view of my sixteen year-old daughter?

GEORGE:

There are no windows facing

my...exposure.

COLLEEN:

George, this is the third time.
