Taco slaps, Matthew’s back heading into the employ bathroom.
Matthew shrugs his shoulders, walking onward.
Where was I? Oh, yeah! He disowned
me. And made me work her in this

Matthew reaches the end of the hall. An old man, Anthony,60,
sits in a waiter uniform and is asleep, snoring.
Matthew bends down to the old man’s ear.
The Germans are coming.

Not waiting anymore.
Both chuckle lightly.
They continue to kiss, His hands touch her breast. She
reaches down, slowly moving to his crouch He is about to go
under her shirt when,...
He goes too early.
What!? what’s wrong?
Matthew looks to us and rolls his eyes in disappointment.
INT. KITCHEN - AFTERNOON
Matthew rolls his eyes at us mimicing his past self.
My luck, huh? And the real down and
dirty thing is. She never gave me
Sarah looks to, Matthew.
Are you going to deal with his?
Matthew looks to, Charlie.
Lets get it finished, Charlie,
before little pencil phil, comes
out and gets us.
Matt holds up his pinky finger.
Fine. But, she could of asked me

Matthew looks back to us.
Two weeks ago he was going to work

he is making patties.
Phil comes out of the hall.
Get to work! It almost lunch time!
The crew make fun of Phil. Mouthing words, making fun of
him. One of the pretends to have anal sex with him.
And bring me a soup, Matthew!
Matthew turns around, he grabs a bowl off the counter. He
gurgles hard, and the sound sounds in sync with the others.
Matthew spits into the bowl, and as he walks past everyone
else, they all do the same.
The bowl as a nice layer of spit.
He comes over to Charlie who stirs the already made soup,
spoon in he digs some out for, Phil and into the bowl.

Benny holds up his phone.
Alicia, "I can’t wait to bang your brains out in the

Benny starts, humping, Matthew like a dog.
I can do without the humping.
And last but not least, my best
friend since, 3rd grade. Benny
Benny is gesturing a figure and acting like he is banging it
and smacking its butt.
Yes, he is black. Can we move it
Again he looks to, Benny who is now acting like he was
making it rain on the girl.
They call him Benny black, because
when we met there were two Benny’s
on the block.
Who you talking to?
How did you get that name, Benny
Benny looks confused at, Matthew.
It aint because I’m black!
Benny shakes his head walking away.
Matthew looks at us again.
He points to us.
Benny walks past leaving the kitchen.
It was because I was, Black.
Benny walks away.
Matthew looks at us and shrugs.

You had your chance and you ran out
like a little girl.
Give me another chance? I might
sweep you off your feet again.
I doubt it.

Matthew gets on his knees.
Taco and the boys look out of the kitchen, watching. Matthew
laying on his charm to her.

Matthew walks away.
The old man tosses the bread away. His friend looking
disturbed by all this.
