OVER BLACK:

We hear labored breathing.

BLACK FRAME:

QUOTE APPEARS:

"Revenge is a dish

best served cold"

- Old Klingon Proverb -

QUOTE FADES OUT:

WE STAY ON BLACK

...breathing continues...

Then a MAN'S VOICE talks over the breathing;

MAN'S VOICE(O.S.)

Do you find me sadistic?

CUT TO:

BLACK AND WHITE CU of a WOMAN

lying on the floor, looking up. The woman on the floor has

just taken a severe spaghetti-western-style gang beating. Her

face is bloody, beaten up, and torn. The high contrast B/W

turning the red blood into black blood.

A hand belonging to the off-screen Man's Voice ENTERS FRAME

holding a white handkerchief with the name "BILL" sewn in the

corner, and begins tenderly wiping away the blood from the

young woman's face. Little by little as the Male Voice

speaks, the beautiful face underneath is revealed to the

audience.

But what can't be wiped away, is the white hot hate that

shines in both eyes at the man who stands over her, the

"BILL" of the title.

In another age men who shook the world for their own purposes

were called conquerors. In our age, the men who shake the

planet for their own power and greed are called corrupters.

And of the world's corrupters Bill stands alone. For while he

corrupts the world, inside himself he is pure.

BILL'S VOICE(O.S.)

I bet I could fry an egg on your

head about now, if I wanted to.

He continues wiping away the blood.

BILL'S VOICE(O.S.)

No kiddo, I'd like to believe, even

now, you're aware enough to know

there isn't a trace of sadism in

my actions... Okay - Maybe towards

these other jokers - bot not your.

OVERHEAD SHOT:

We see for a moment, A WIDE SHOT looking down at the woman on

the floor. Bill(from behind) bent down over her. Four others

in black suits, standing over her(three are female, one is

male). And about four DEAD BODIES lying in their own blood.

We also see we're in a wedding chapel that's been redecorated

by blood death and gunfire. And firstly or lastly, depending

on the viewer, that the woman on the floor is dressed in a

white bridal gown.

This woman is our Heroine, and from this moment forth she

will only be referred to as The BRIDE.

Back to CU of The BRIDE.

The BRIDE on the floor. Her pretty face is wiped clean.

BILL'S VOICE(O.S.)

No Kiddo at this moment, this is me

at my most masochistic.

While still in her CU The Bride speaks for the first time in

the picture. She looks up at the man standing over her and

says;

THE BRIDE:

Bill, I'm pregnant. It's your baby.

After saying the "y" in "baby", we hear a BANG and The Bride

receives a bullet in the side of her head.

CUT TO:

B/W CU of a Young MAN in a TUXEDO. Shot to death.

The BRIDE speaks to us in a VO;

THE BRIDE(V.O.)

That's Tim, Arthur's best friend.

CU A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN in a frilly pink dress with two

bullet holes in her.

THE BRIDE(V.O.)

That's his girlfriend Janeen.

CU A PLUMP YOUNG WOMAN, shot to death, wedding bouquet still

clutched in her dead fist.

THE BRIDE(V.O.)

That's my best friend from work

Erica.

AN OLDER MAN IN A BLACK SUIT shot fulla holes.

THE BRIDE(V.O.)

That's the minister. I think his

name was Reverend Hillhouse.

A DEAD OLDER WOMAN by his side in an old-fashioned flower

print dress.

THE BRIDE(V.O.)

That's his wife.

A DEAD OLDER WOMAN slumped over an organ.

THE BRIDE(V.O.)

Organ player, don't know her name.

A YOUNG MAN IN A TUXEDO WITH HIS FACE BLOWN OFF.

THE BRIDE(V.O.)

That's Arthur. Arthur Plympton. The

name on his driver's license was

Charles Arthur Plympton, but for

some reason he preferred Arthur.

Maybe if he went by Carles people

would have called him Charlie. If

that was his reason for going by

Arthur I can understand it.

Nothing wrong with the name

Charlie, except he didn't look like

a Charlie, he looked like an

Arthur.

Obviously you'll have to take my

word on this. Speaking of names, I

was about two seconds away from

becoming Mrs. Charles Arthur

Plympton.
