Gulliver's Travels

Synopsis: Lemuel Gulliver has been working in the mail room of a New York daily newspaper for the past ten years. Afraid to put himself out there, he considers himself a loser, as do all his peers. One day, after having finally had enough, he decides to declare his flame to the beautiful Darcy Silverman, the newspaper's travel editor and one of Gulliver's only friends...only to chicken out at the last minute and instead tell her that he'd like to try his hand at writing a column. Darcy accepts and sends him on an assignment to the Bermuda Triangle. There, Gulliver becomes shipwrecked and ends up on the island of Liliput, where he is twelve taller than the tallest man. For the first time, Gulliver has people looking up to him...

to head of the mailroom.

So I'm your boss now.

Look, Gulliver, the reason you didn't

ask her out and you never will...

is the same reason that you're

not going to leave the mailroom.

You've been here 10 years, man.

You peaked.

You talk a big game

and that can be fun sometimes.

And you're pretty funny around the office,

but that's all you are.

It's just talk.

So you might as well face it...

you're never really going to

get any bigger than this.

These talks. This is the worst part

about being a boss.

Anyway, be in tomorrow at 7:00.

We're going to sort of

change things up...

and we're gonna start with getting rid

of "Guitar Hero" during work hours.

Night, Darcy.

See you.




Can I help you?

Yeah, I...

I wanted to see...

if you wanted to...

You seem a little nervous.

Are you all right?

No, I'm fine. I'm just...

I got so much going on.

I wanted to pick this up,

and then I'm on my way.

You want to apply for

a travel writing assignment?

Yeah. Exactly.

I had no idea you wrote or traveled.

I do. I travel a lot.

I go to New Zealand.

Been to Mexico.

Mjico, they call it...

in the locals.

Africa, the Congo.

Which I know is in Africa

because I travel and write.

So this is kind of what I want to do.

Why don't you bring in a writing sample

tomorrow and I'll see what I can do.


- Okay.

- Okay.

Hey, Gulliver.

Nice job putting yourself out there.

Yeah. Cool. Okay, bye-bye.


I should've just manned up

and asked her out.

Now she's expecting a writing sample?

What was I thinking?

I saw some things

In different lands

Karate chop... I gotta write this thing!

No, I got nothing.

I am so impressed, Gulliver.

I had no idea

you were such a good writer.

I kind of keep it secret. I don't like
