Get Tim Out

  1. 1. INT. NURSING HOME - MAIN ROOM - DAY This Nursing Home could win the award for the most peaceful, boring place on Earth. Is one of those places where nothing barely exciting ever happens and the OLD PEOPLE seated at their tables, happily prepared to eat the soup previously served to them, don't seem to be looking for more than that. Meanwhile wheeling a table trolley with a large soup pot on top are TWO quite different men. The youngest is a big but badly beaten fella named JEFF. Next to him is TIM, dragging along an oxygen machine. Either JEFF or TIM look like enjoying each other’s company. JEFF We need to leave, and leave here fast. TIM Oh now you want to leave huh? JEFF Take a look around old man. The Elders prepare their napkins and spoons. An idyllic picture of happiness, simplicity -- and soup eating. TIM I can make a run for it... (analyses the scenario) Nah, you would only drag me along. How in the hell could this happen? INT. NURSING HOME - MAIN CORRIDOR - NIGHT (FLASHBACK) On the wall by the ROOM 66 is a sign that says "TIM'S ROOM". INT. NURSING HOME - ROOM 66 - NIGHT (FLASHBACK) The room is dark with nothing but the moonlight coming from an open window. A MAN is seated by the bed crying. It’s Jeff. JEFF I can’t I’m sorry, I’m sorry dad. Tim is laid on the bed, furious. He grabs Jeff’s collar. TIM You listen to me you poor excuse of offspring. I want out of here, I want out of here now.
  2. 2. JEFF I -- I can’t. Mum will whoop my ass if she even dreams you’re alive. TIM Alive? You call this alive? JEFF Well you are half alive. TIM That’s the same as half dead you jackass. Jeff calms down and stands up. JEFF That’s a pessimistic point of view dad. TIM A what... JEFF I have to leave. Tim grabs his crane and hits Jeff’s nose which immediately starts to bleed. JEFF (CONT’D) Arghh dad. TIM I’m escaping this hell spy style. Tim sits on the bed and grabs the oxygen machine. JEFF Well dad in real life spies die like... all the time. TIM Screw real life. Jeff watches as Tim very slowly walks to the window and seats on it’s ledge. JEFF I’m not paying for any broken bones old man. TIM Is this or the poison. JEFF Come back to bed. Tim grabs a SMALL BOTTLE OF RAT POISON and holds it up. 2.
  3. 3. JEFF (CONT’D) Where did you get that? TIM Rats. The nurses ain’t getting them and they won’t get me neither. JEFF Give it to me. TIM That’s right boy Imma teach you how thing's were done when men had a believable pair of balls. JEFF Get down or I’ll call someone. Tim opens the bottle and prepares to drink it. Jeff rushes to stop him but before he can Tim hits him in the testicles with the cane, leaps back inside and pushes Jeff out. Jeff’s bad landing from the second floor is AUDIBLE. Tim locks the window. With a sneaky laugh he walks very slowly out of the room. INT. NURSING HOME - MAIN CORRIDOR - NIGHT (FLASHBACK) Tim walks towards the exit, he’s a very fragile man but his goals are clear. JEFF (O.S.) Dad! Jeff’s shadow shows on the other side of the exit’s windows. Tim stops and swiftly moves in another direction. INT. NURSING HOME - KITCHEN - NIGHT (FLASHBACK) Tim walks towards a back door. He passes by the large soup pot ready for the next day. As Tim prepares to break the door down the door opens from the outside. A huge SILHOUETTE, almost bear-like, stands in front of him. TIM Get away from me devil! The silhouette moves forward. It's a very mad and hurt Jeff. JEFF The first thing I will do when I get you to your room is call mum and tell her you are here. (MORE) 3.
  4. 4. She will bring the gun herself and I’ll wait until she's pulling the trigger, until the very last moment, to save your old ass. If your heart doesn’t stop then, you’ll learn to appreciate me dad. Jeff grabs Tim and turns him to the corridor. They struggle, Tim hits Jeff with the cane and throws him against the soup pot. Jeff grabs Tim and tries to take the poison out of his hands. Tim breathes deeply and extends his arm so Jeff doesn’t reach him. Jeff is obviously trying not to hurt his fighting father. Tim makes a final effort but loses his strength and let’s the poison fall right INSIDE the soup pot. Tim and Jeff stop in shock and stare at it. JEFF (CONT’D) Jesus dad. TIM What? You better know how to cook soup. JEFF Have I a damn idea. I live with mum remember? Tim looks at the clock. It’s 10 minutes to 5 a.m. TIM Boy, you do are a fuck up. INT. NURSING HOME - MAIN ROOM - DAY - PRESENT Jeff and Tim watch the old people getting ready for their last meal. Now it's obvious why they are so worried. JEFF We’re doomed. TIM Nah, not on my watch. Pay attention boy, theatricality. Tim grabs a spoon, sips on some soup and spits it out. JEFF You are out of your mind old man! Tim makes some disgusting noises and falls on his knees over- dramatizing the situation. JEFF (CONT'D) 4.
  5. 5. TIM I see the light, oh Lord I can feel you taking my spirit. The Elders stop what they're doing and look at him. TIM (CONT’D) It’s in the soup, the soup that shall take me to heaven oh Lord all mighty. A moment of aAWKWARD SILENCE. No reaction. Jeff watches the Elders apprehensively.. Suddenly an OLD WOMAN claps. And more Elders clap. And more. Al Elders clap and laugh impressed with the act. They nod and smile at Tim for that amazing performance and calmly get back to their meals. JEFF Oh shit. Tim and Jeff look at each other, they are not screwed, everyone else is. And there is nothing they can do about it. THE END 5.
