SAMPLE SCENES BELOW



Spotlight comes up on a Superhero, Speedo, sitting in a chair.  A figure sits near him but in the darkness.

SPEEDO

I'm fast... so fast no one can see me.  I thought I had something special... something I could help people with, but it ended up being a joke.  Everyone started calling me Speedo.  That's one of them guy's swim suits... not a flattering one either... Have you seen a guy in a speedo?  Yuck.

DOCTOR

How fast are you?

SPEEDO

You know that pen that was in your pocket a second ago?  Here it is.

DOCTOR

That is fast.

Doctor thinks.

DOCTOR (CONT.)

How about a chocolate fudge candy bar... wait... with almonds.

Speedo holds it out to her.

SPEEDO

That's what everyone wants me to do... fetch stuff... I should be called Errand Boy.

DOCTOR

And that's why you want to get rid of your power... this burden that haunts you... it ruins your life.

SPEEDO

Yes.

DOCTOR

I can do that for you... I can take away this hardship in your life... this curse... forever.

*Dramatic superhero music*

Speedo and Doctor exit.

INT. Waiting room. Day.

Lights come up on a group of people dressed as superheroes sit in a row of a waiting room.

DOGBOY

Rough.

CATCHICK

Hiss.

DOGBOY

I wasn't barking.

CATCHICK

Oh.

DOGBOY

I was thinking how rough of a day I've had.

CATCHICK

That's why you're here.

DOGBOY

But I have things to do... crime to fight.  I can't wait around here all day.

CATCHICK

You don't have a choice.

SMACK

I can't take it anymore!  I have to get out of here.

Doctor enters.

DOCTOR

Sit down.

SMACK

You can't stop me.  I'm Smack the Superstrong!  I will smite you!

DOGBOY

Nice tagline!

Smack swings at Doctor but she backs away and then grabs his ear and twists.  Smack falls to the floor in pain.

DOCTOR

There will be no smiting, nor biting.

DOGBOY

Grrr!

DOCTOR

Nor scratching.

CATCHICK

Hisss!

DOCTOR

Everyone please wait your turn and no more disturbances.

Doctor lets go of Smack.  There is a ding and Doctor exits.

DOGBOY

How did she stop you? 

SMACK

I don't know.

CATCHICK

Mind powers.  She's got mind powers more powerful than you can imagine.

Shade comes from behind the chairs.

SHADE

Our powers are useless around her.

DOGBOY

Where'd you come from?

SHADE

I am Shade.  I came from the shadows.

CATCHICK

More like from behind the chairs.  How long have you been back there?

SHADE

Long enough to know what's going on here.

DOGBOY

What is going on?

SHADE

The doctor is removing our powers.

SMACK

What?

SHADE

Not only can she stop us.  She can take away our powers... (dramatic pause) ...forever!

DOGBOY

Nice dramatic pause.

SMACK

This is terrible.  I'd be nothing without my super strength!  I can't go back to being some loser working at D-Mart. 

CATCHICK

Personally I'm tired of all the hairballs.  She can have my powers. 

DOGBOY

I do get tired of smelling everything. 

DOGBOY sniffs around and looks at Shade and makes a face.

DOGBOY (CONT.)

You smell like you've been hiding there a LONG time. 

SHADE

We have to escape.

SMACK

Or smite the doc!

DOGBOY

But how?

SHADE

Shhh!  She's coming!

Shade hides behind the chairs.  The others sit in their chairs.  The Doctor enters with another superhero.

DOCTOR

You'll never have to worry about flying again.

CAPER

I guess it's time to hang up my cape.

DOCTOR

Stay off the rooftops. Or we'll have to have another session.

CAPER

I'm done.  Please.  I promise.

DOCTOR

Very well.  No need to schedule a followup then.

CAPER

Please.  Never again. 

DOCTOR

Next!

Catchick stands.  Dogboy grabs her arm but she hisses and pulls away.

CATCHICK

Look.  I want to be able to go the beach without getting the urge to use the bathroom.  I want to go swimming again.  I am tired of all those naps.  Please doctor.  Take me next.

DOCTOR

Walk this way.

Catchick follows Doctor off.  Caper starts to go but Smack grabs him.  Shade comes out.

SMACK

The doctor took your powers!

CAPER

I think so.

SHADE

Try flying.

CAPER

No, I promised.

SHADE

Get on that chair and try.

CAPER

I don't want to go back in there.  I promised never to fly again. I won't do it.  Please don't make me. It was horrible.

SMACK

What did the doctor do?

CAPER

I can't say.  It... it was too terrible.

SHADE

Get on that chair.  I must know if she really took your powers.

CAPER

No.

SHADE

Do it or else.

CAPER

Or else what?

SHADE

I'll haunt you until the day you die.  You know I can be pretty scary.

CAPER

The doctor is scary.  You're just super annoying.  Fine.  Then you'll let me go?

SHADE

Of course.

Caper gets on a chair.  They watch and Caper jumps and falls.

CAPER

There.  Happy?

SHADE

The Doctor did it.  She really can take our powers.

Smack grabs Caper.

SMACK

Let's try the window to be sure.

Smack throws Caper through a window.  He sticks his head out.  Caper screams.  Then there is a thud.

SMACK (Cont.)

Nope. Can't fly. 

DOGBOY

Did you have to do that?

SMACK

Yes, yes I did.

SHADE

We had to make sure his powers were really gone or if it was the temporary power jam of being near the doctor.

Dogboy looks out window.

DOGBOY

But still... did you have to do that? 

SMACK

He landed on that old lady.  He'll live.

DOGBOY

What about the old lady?

SMACK

Good point.
