Bogus Page #2

Synopsis: Seven year-old Albert is the son of a Las Vegas circus performer. When she is killed in a car wreck, Albert is sent to live with his mother's foster sister, Harriet Franklin, a no-nonsense businesswoman struggling in New Jersey. Albert hates it with the dour Harriet, but takes refuge in the company of Bogus, a flamboyant, gentle, loving, and altogether imaginary Frenchman. With Bogus's help, Albert can perhaps come to terms with his mother's death, and Harriet with her own loss of childhood innocence.

I'VE BEEN PRACTICING.

I'M REALLY GOOD WITH

Lorraine's voice:

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

IN THE EVENT OF MY DEATH,

PLEASE CONTACT MY FOSTER SISTER

HARRIET FRANKLIN.

EVEN THOUGH OUR LIVES

HAVE GONE SEPARATE WAYS

AND IT'S BEEN MANY YEARS

SINCE WE'VE SPOKEN,

I'VE ALWAYS THOUGH OF HER AS THE GODMOTHER

OF MY SON ALBERT,

WHO I AM LEAVING

IN HER CARE.

I BELIEVE SHE WILL ALWAYS

BE THERE FOR ALBERT...

Man and Lorraine:

"AS HARRIET AND I WERE

ONCE THERE FOR ONE ANOTHER.

Man:
"SHE IS MOST LIKELY

STILL IN NEWARK.

I KNOW SHE'LL WANT TO

DO THE RIGHT THING."

SIGNED,

LORRAINE FRANKLIN.

THE BOY HAS A GUARDIAN.

IT'S HIS GODMOTHER--

HARRIET FRANKLIN.

ANY OF YOU:

EVER HEARD OF HER?

JANET, GET ME

DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE

FOR NEWARK, NEW JERSEY.

LET ME ASK HARRIET, OK?

HOLD ON. HOLD ON.

HARRIET!

CAN YOU HOLD ON:

ONE SECOND?

WHAT IS IT?

MIKE BELASCO'S CLAIMING

WE OVER-DELIVERED

ON THE COASTERS.

PENNY, DID YOU REMEMBER

TO VERIFY THE ORDER?

VERBALLY AND IN WRITING,

LIKE YOU SAID.

BOB, CAN YOU

HOLD ON ONE SECOND?

IT'S SO BUSY HERE.

MIKE, WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

NO, NO, NO.

WE DIDN'T OVER-DELIVER.

YOU OVER-ORDERED.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING,

ORDERING PINK COASTERS?

YOU GO A CIGAR MANUFACTURERS

CONVENTION GOING ON!

NO. HOLD ON A SECOND.

BOB, YOU STILL THERE?

I'LL BE RIGHT WITH YOU.

I TELL YOU WHAT.

I'M GOING TO

DO YOU A BIG FAVOR.

YOU SEND ME BACK

THE PINK ONES, I'LL

SEND YOU THE BROWN ONES,

YOU PAY FOR SHIPPING.

OK? I'M GOING TO

PUT PENNY ON. PENNY!

WHAT?

GET ON WITH BELASCO.

WE'RE FINALLY

GETTING RID OF THOSE

GODDAMN BROWN COASTERS.

BOB! SORRY ABOUT THAT.

YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU'RE BUSY,

THE WORLD IS ON HOLD.

NOW, AS I WAS SAYING,

I WANT TO GET INTO

BIGGER THINGS, BOB.

I WANT TO GET INTO STERILIZERS

AND DEEP FRYERS...

[TELEPHONE RINGS]

Harriet:

TO COOK THINGS IN.

I REALLY FEEL...

RELIABLE HOTEL:

AND RESTAURANT SUPPLY.

WE'RE THERE FOR YOU.

YES?

NO. I FOUND

A WONDERFUL WAREHOUSE.

IT'S FULL OF INVENTORY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

COME AND SEE IT WITH ME.
