CLOSE-UP OF VADA SULTENFUSS' FACE

VADA:

I remember before I was born, wounded up like

a fur ball in the highly overrated fetal

position, luckily I'm not claustrophobic, but

on rainy days I still feel a tightness in my

left shoulder. So now that my stepmother's

pregnant, I understand what the baby's going

through, and I'm not jealous at all, really,

not at all.

VIEW OF THE SULTENFUSS' DINING ROOM TABLE. VADA, HARRY AND

SHELLY ARE SEATED. SHELLY IS VERY PREGNANT

HARRY:

Hey you're not eating your meatloaf.

SHELLY:

If I eat it I'll throw up.

HARRY:

Well you should at least try a little bit.

SHELLY:

Then I'll throw up a little bit.

VADA:

(to Shelly's stomach)

Are you sure you wanna get involved in this?

OUTSIDE SULTENFUSS' HOUSE, MUSIC IS PLAYING OUR HOUSE,

INSIDE HARRY IS SINGING

HARRY:

...windows are illuminated by the evening

sunshine through them firey gems for you, only

for you, our house, is a very, very, very fine

house, with two cats in the yard, life used to

be so hard, now everything is easy 'cause of

you...

Harry walks to Vada who is placing chairs in rows in the

funeral room

HARRY:

Vada, try to scrunch these chairs together a

little more.

VADA:

Dad, I'm trying. The chairs, they won't

scrunch.

Doorbell rings

ARTHUR:

I'll get it.

HARRY:

Well I guess we'll just set up more chairs in

the library and pipe the sermon in like we did

with Old Man Hasselmeyer.

VADA:

Better fix that speaker, it makes the

minister sound like an astronaut.

Arthur opens the front door to reveal Judy

ARTHUR:

Oh, hello Judy.

JUDY:

Hi Arthur.

Harry walks past

HARRY:

Hi Judy, come on in.

JUDY:

Hi Mr. Sultenfuss.

ARTHUR:

(to Vada)

Look who I found.

VADA:

Hi Judy!

Judy doesn't enter the funeral room. She doesn't like the

idea of being anywhere near a corpse

JUDY:

(nervous)

Hi.

VADA:

Come on in!

JUDY:

That's okay.

VADA:

It's just a corpse.

JUDY:

I know that.

VADA:

You should be here when they bring in a body

that's been dead for a couple of days, and

they haven't found it yet, 'cause it was in an

apartment, and no-one came to visit, or

floating in a river, and then the body starts

turning this weird shade of green, you know,

like watery pea soup? The arms and legs

deteriorate first, the body looks like a

raisin with four fat legs. Anyway, this is why

I'm seriously considering cremation. Judy??
