911 emergency.

I need an ambulance.

I have you at 9212 West Third Street

in Los Angeles.

Yes, room number two.

What's the emergency?

There's been a suicide.

Who's the victim?

I am.

In seven days,

God created the world.

And in seven seconds-

-I shattered mine.

I can have four new fillets

overnight.

Oh no, no thank you.

What is your name again?

Ezra, is that right right?

Yes, sir.

I'll just need your first and last name

So I can call up your account

You know what, here's what i'm thinking Ezra.

I think i'm gonna mail

you the meat back personally

So you can see first hand the

type of dog food that you're peddling.

That won't be necessary, sir.

- So how about we just start with your last name

- Thomas.

And don't you get me started on

the pork

Have you tried the pork?

Well no, sir.I'm not much of

a meateater myself.

But I hear really great things

about the pork.

So you don't eat

pork at all?

No, sir.

Are you jewish?

Is that why you don't

eat pork, Ezra?

Well ...Can we start with

your first name, Mr Thomas?

Ben.

No order for Ben Thomas.

Wow, hold on.

What was that voice?

I don't have an order for

a Ben Thomas.

- Ezra. What was that voice?

- What voice?

- Are you blind?

- Excuse me?

You're kidding me.

A blind beef salesman

who doesn't eat meat.

Now that, that is rich,

That is rich.

Have you ever had sex, Ezra?

Did Lawrence in accounting put

you up to this?

Because somehow I can't

imagine a blind-

-vegan beef salesman

having sex.

- Listen, i'm trying to help you sir.

- You're trying to help me?

The blind beef salesman

is trying to help me?

I'm actually starting to feel

pretty bad for you, Ezra,

Because I look at my life and

it is surrounded by so much beauty,

and you can't see shit.

Is that fair?

Does that seem fair to you, Ezra?

Do you even know what colour the ocean is?

Do you!?

It's blue, sir.

"It's blue, sir."

Say what you wanna say.

React, say what you wanna say to me!

Thank you for calling Cheyenne Meats.

That's not what you wanna say, you coward!

Coward!

You blind vegan beef salesman,

virgin coward, say what you wanna say!

Goodbye, Mr Thomas ...

Grant Nieporte

Grant Edward Nieporte, born in 1973, is a screenwriter best known for the film Seven Pounds. Nieporte got the idea for the script after having a chat with a man whom he called "one of the saddest people I've ever met in my life". In the behind the scenes vignette found on the Seven Pounds DVD, Nieporte seems to suggest that the man was responsible for the death of seven in a "national tragedy." Nieporte was a technical advisor for the TV show Home Improvement from 1997-99. He was a writer's assistant on Jack & Jill in 1999-2000. more…
