Yeah.

Bob

Let's show them how big the screen is, eh? Zoom out!

Doug

Look how HUGE it is, eh?

Bob

Ok, like normally we just have Great White North, eh? But look, we

Don't forget. Ok, zoom in on me, the director. Come on!

[Camera zooms in on Doug]

Bob

I directed, too, eh?

Doug

Yeah, well, I've got to give them my theory on movies, eh? Ok, here's

my theory on movies, eh? You want to know how to wreck a movie, eh?

Take a jar of moths into the theater, eh?

Bob:
[Fumbles with movie screen, it collapses] Sorry.

Doug

And then, like, release them at a point in the movie when you know

what's going to happen, and all the moths will fly up to the projection

booth window and cloud it up and you can demand your money back! Beauty

idea, eh?

Bob

Ok. Zoom out, eh? [Camera zooms out] Ok, this movie was shot in 3-B,

three beers, and it looks good, eh?

Doug

Hoserama. Call it hoserama, eh?

Bob

Ok, so we made a movie. So sit back and get some corn, and let's

have..uh..it's movie time.

Doug

Ok, turn it on.

Bob

Ok. [turn on projector]

[SCENE TWO - Their movie]

[Sign says

2051 A.D. Ten years after World War 4.]

Bob

Give 'em enough time to...

Doug

[reads sign] What?

Bob

No, more.

Doug

They saw it already!

[Both fight over sign, the camera cuts to Bob on beach]

Bob

I was the only one left on the planet after the holocaust, eh?

Doug

[off camera to Bob] Hey hoser, go!

Bob

The earth had been, like, devastated by nuclear war. Like, Russia blew

up the US and the US blew up Russia. [picks up statue from ground]

Statue of Liberty.

Doug [off camera]

Psst! Act, act!

Bob

Lucky for me I'd been off-planet on vacation at the time of the war.

There wasn't much to do. All the bowling alleys had been wrecked, so

I spent most of my time looking for beer. One day I was out looking

for a nice place to build a city for my children when I spotted a

mutant in the forbidden zone. I landed my vehicle to pursue and

destroy this genetic freak before he could warn other mutants in the

underground caves. I was kind of like a one man force, eh, like

Charlton Heston in Omega Men, did you see that? It was a beauty.

[Doug leaps out and confronts Bob]

Fleshy-headed mutant, and you friendly?
