SCENE 1 - INT. STAGE. DAY.

Billy and Bobby go to Pepper who is passed out on the floor. 

BILLY

Is that who I think it is?!

BOBBY

Pepper from the Chile Pepper Chicks!

BILLY

I can't believe we're this close to her.

BOBBY

Yeah, usually she runs away when we get this close.

They help her up in to a rolling chair.

BILLY

So what do you think is wrong with her?

BOBBY

Don't you remember? This happened the first time they tried to perform at the Sailfish Lounge. The place was packed and Pepper passed out.

BILLY

The place was packed and Pepper passed out. Hey, that's like a tongue twister. The place was packed and Pepper passed out. The place was packed and Pepper passed out.

(BILLY and BOBBY hear voices and freeze)

DOLLY

Hurry up will you?


TIFFANY

You want the French Vanilla creamer or Irish Cream?


(BILLY and BOBBY rush around with PEPPER on rolling chair)

DOLLY

Mocha! I always want Mocha!


TIFFANY

They're out of Mocha.


DOLLY

You're out of Mocha?


TIFFANY

They...


DOLLY

YOU'RE out of Mocha.


TIFFANY

I'm sorry.


DOLLY

"I'm sorry." I don't know why I keep you around.


(BILLY and BOBBY eventually roll PEPPER behind crate and peek over as DOLLY and TIFFANY enter with DORIAN in tow)

DORIAN

Oh, you two just stop. You promised me you'd all be on your best behavior.

DOLLY

I will for the cameras. Do you see any cameras?

DORIAN

No and what a shame. We're just not getting nearly enough attention are we? We could have ourselves the next Shania Twain and no one is here to see it. Who's the next group on the list, Tiffany?

TIFFANY

Some group called the Chile Pepper Chicks.

DOLLY

Where are they from?

TIFFANY

New Mexico.

DOLLY

New Mexico? I thought this was only for American groups.

DORIAN

New Mexico is one of the 50, Dolly.

DOLLY

So where are they? We haven't got time to wait around. There are hundreds of groups here.

DORIAN

You offer a hundred thousand dollar prize and that will happen.

BILLY

Hundred.

BOBBY

Thousand.

BILLY

Dollars!

(Rolls out PEPPER)

Here we are.

(TIFFANY looks at clipboard and then PEPPER)

DORIaN

I recognize that one from the picture.

DOLLY

Who are you guys?

BOBBY

Uh...

BILLY

We're the band.

BOBBY

We are?

(BILLY kicks BOBBY)

We are!

(TIFFANY giggles)





DORIAN

Excuse me, but you're not Chicks.

BILLY

Oh, you know. It's one of them funny name things bands do. Like Twisted Sister. No crippled girls in that group.

BOBBY

Or the Bare Naked Ladies. I went to one of their concerts and there weren't no naked ladies anywhere. I was very disappointed.

BILLY

That there is what you call irony.

BOBBY

Irony?

BILLY

It's like rain on a summer day or a free ride but you're going anyway.

BOBBY

Huh?

BILLY

Never mind.

DOLLY

What's with her? She okay?

BOBBY

Sure, she's fine.

BILLY

She's meditating.

BOBBY

Yeah, getting herself mentally prepared.

DOLLY

I can see that she's brains of the operation.

TIFFANY

So who's this other gal in the picture?

BILLY

Oh... that's Bobby here.

BOBBY

What? I mean... what a dress.

BILLY

Yeap, we were just playing around with the whole chick idea and though it would be funny if we all dressed up like girls.

TIFFANY

So where are you?

BILLY

That's a good question.

BOBBY

Remember, you were upset because they didn't have your favorite color, pink and you refused to wear orange. Orange is not his color.

DORIAN

I don't think orange is anybody's color.

DOLLY

(Looks at watch)

You know what? It's my lunchtime. Can we do this audition after I grab myself something to eat?

BILLY

Sure!

BOBBY

Take your time.

BILLY

Bye.

Makes PEPPER wave goodbye.

DORIAN

Let's not do this place's snack bar again. I feel like I'm going to feeding time at the trough.

TIFFANY

I'll run and get us something.

DOLLY

Make it quick. I want to get this over with.

DORIAN, DOLLY and TIFFANY exit.

BOBBY

Quick. Let's get a picture with Pepper and git. You got the camera?

BILLY gets camera from crate.

BILLY

I got it. Here we go. Now pose with Pepper.

BOBBY arranges PEPPER.

BOBBY

How's this?

BILLY takes picture and looks at it.

BILLY

Dang, her eyes are closed.

BOBBY

Try again.

BILLY takes another picture.

BILLY

Eyes closed again.

BOBBY

Wait.

(BOBBY holds open PEPPER's eyes)

Take it.

BILLY

Got it! Let's go.

Billy and Bobby rush out and leave Pepper motionless in the chair.  After a few seconds she slowly slips out of the chairs and falls on the floor.
