START:

CLOSE UP OF VADA

VADA:

(to camera)

I was born jaundiced. Once I sat on a toilet

seat at a Truck stop and caught hemorrhoids.

And i've learned to live with this chicken

Bone that's been lodged in my throat for the

past three years, so I knew Dad would be

devastated when he learned of my latest

affliction.

(to Harry)

Dad, I don't wanna upset you, but my left

breast is developing at a significantly faster

rate than my right. It can only mean one

thing. Cancer. I'm dying.

HARRY:

(ignoring Vada)

O.K. Sweetie, hand me the mayonnaise out of

the fridge.

FRONT OF SULTENFUSS' HOUSE

Vada closes front door and goes down the steps to a group

of boys

VADA:

All right, who's in raise your hand.

All the boys raise their hands except Thomas J

BOY:

Are you coming or not Thomas J?

THOMAS J:

I don't think so.

VADA:

I knew he wouldn't come.

THOMAS J:

I can't, I have to go home.

BOY#2

Yeah, to play with his DOLLS.

VADA:

Leave him alone! Come on, let's go.

Group of boys enters house lead by Vada

Once inside, the group is suddenly stopped

VADA:

(to boy#2)

Hey, you didn't pay me!

BOY#2

How do I know you were gonna show us one?

VADA:

You're such a baby.

BOY#2

All right, here.

Boy reaches inside his pocket, gets money out and gives it

to Vada

VADA:

All right, follow me and don't say a word.

They walk towards two large doors, stop, and Vada turns

around

You ready?

They enter the coffin display room, and move over to the

coffin in the middle of the room

You sure you wanna see it, or is someone

gonna go yellow belly?

BOY#3

I'm not chicken!

VADA:

Okay. Lean forward.

A tense moment as the coffin lid is flung open by Vada and

the boys gasp as they look inside

GIRL#1

It's empty!

BOY#2

You're so weird!

BOY:

I want my money back!

VADA:

I was afraid of this.
