Ten o’clock in the morning. FLORENCE and WILLIAM in the living room.
FLORENCE: I’ve become it.
FLORENCE: You know when you sit for long, you become it.
FLORENCE: No, no, when you sit for long and you have nothing to do.
FLORENCE: You’re so dumb.
WILLIAM: Hey! I’m your husband, gimme some respect.
FLORENCE: Oh! Yes! Bored! You’re boring.
FLORENCE: You’re boring, and I’m also boring - no, bored. I’m bored. I’ve become bored.
WILLIAM: What should I do?
FLORENCE: We should do what little kids do.
FLORENCE: No, what little kids do when they play.
FLORENCE: Tsk, no. When one kid hides and the other seeks. Hide and seek. Yes, we should do hide and seek.
WILLIAM: Play hide and seek, Flower.
FLORENCE: You can play hide and seek? I thought you do hide and seek.
WILLIAM facepalms. FLORENCE makes a face at him.
FLORENCE: Okay, you count, I'll hide.
WILLIAM puts his hands over his glasses. FLORENCE waddles behind the couch, then she goes out the front door, then she goes across the street and into the park where she hides behind a bush. TONY (20) and JIMMY (23) are behind it as well.
FLORENCE: Are you two hiding from him as well?
FLORENCE: My him.
TONY: Your who?
FLORENCE: The one I'm married to.
JIMMY: We don't know who you're married to. Leave us alone, old hag.
FLORENCE takes off her heels and smacks both men with it.
TONY: What was that for?
FLORENCE: You called me old hag.
JIMMY: Forgive us, lady, get lost.
FLORENCE: I can't! I'm hiding from him!
JIMMY: Who are you hiding from?
TONY: Who's Earl?
FLORENCE: My husband, idiot. I'm hiding from him. We're playing hide and seek and he'll give me loooots of money when he finds me.
TONY and JIMMY look at each other mischievously.
JIMMY: He has a lot of money?
FLORENCE: Yes, he has a lot of money.
TONY: If we kidnapped you, would he give us money?
JIMMY: He means nothing, he's just sick in the head.
FLORENCE: Oh, okay.
JIMMY: We have a very good place to hide you...
FLORENCE: Okay, let's go then!
TONY, whispering to JIMMY: She's the one sick in the head, man, what the hell are you talking about?
FLORENCE: Put my shoes back on.
TONY: Okay, let's go now. The motorbike is over there.
JIMMY: How are all of us going to fit on that?
TONY: You come running. You have a lotta fat anyway.
TONY vrooms away on the motorbike.
Back in the house.
WILLIAM: A thousand forty nine... a thousand fifty... a thousand fifty-one...
JOSHUA enters the living room.
JOSHUA: Whatcha doin'?
WILLIAM: Be quiet, I'm counting.
JOSHUA: Are you giving your grade one teacher your exam?
WILLIAM: No, your mom and I are playing hide and seek.
JOSHUA: Have you guys lost your memory or something? You're both in your fifties.
WILLIAM: Be quiet, I'm trying to count! A thousand fifty-five...
WILLIAM: Are you trying to take my hearing away?
JOSHUA: No, I'm trying to make you lose your number.
WILLIAM: Shut up!
JOSHUA: Where's my mother? I looked for her all over the house earlier, and I can't find her. Also, Belle is gone to the marketplace. Three hours ago, she said she's come in an hour. It's been three hours, Will! Three hours! My wife is lost!!
WILLIAM: She's probably kidnapped.
WILLIAM: And now I lost my count! Flower, I'm coming!
WILLIAM walks out of the living room.
FLORENCE, JIMMY, and TONY are in an abandoned building. FLORENCE is sipping on juice.
TONY: What's your husband's phone number?
FLORENCE: I dunno.
TONY: Do you know your house address?
FLORENCE: I live in Antartica. Right in the middle.
JIMMY: What the hell?
FLORENCE: No, I don't live in hell, I live in Antartica.
FLORENCE, singing: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0
JIMMY: You think she might be saying someone's number?
TONY: Maybe, let me dial it. (pause) It's ringing. (pause) Hello, we have your wife.
PERSON 1: Shut up, idiot, I am with her.
JIMMY: What did he say?
TONY: Nothing. Lady, what's your name?
FLORENCE: Angelina Jolie.
TONY: Tsk, what's your real name.
FLORENCE: Scarlett Johansson.
Back in the house, outside the kitchen. Bell rings.
JOSHUA: Who could that be?
WILLIAM: Go check.
JOSHUA: I was going to.
JOSHUA goes to open the front door.
JOSHUA: Belle! You're okay!
BELLE: Hm? Of course I am.
BELLE and JOSHUA both walk into the kitchen, with WILLIAM on their heels.
BELLE: Why are you following me?
WILLIAM: Where are the kidnappers?
JOSHUA: Love, don't you know what kidnappers are?
BELLE: I do.
JOSHUA: Where are they?
BELLE: Where are who?
WILLIAM: The kidnappers!
BELLE: I don't have kidnappers!
JOSHUA: Then why did you take so long?
BELLE: Because the check out line was so long. And these three dresses carried me away.
WILLIAM: Then where's Flower?
JOSHUA: She might be here somewhere. Let's go look outside.
A few minutes later, JOSHUA and WILLIAM return, looking sad.
BELLE: Did you find her?
WILLIAM: We looked everywhere.
BELLE: Then she's kidnapped.
BELLE: Less mouths to feed. And anyways, both of you know you can't stand it when she keeps on forgetting things.
BELLE storms into her room. JOSHUA is quietly sobbing. WILLIAM is staring at the front door expectantly.
WILLIAM: We need to do something.
JOSHUA: I know!
