Lights up on Dad sitting in front of a laptop with his favorite blanket his wife left him, laughing then crying.)
(Entering) Good morning.
You ok dad?
DadYeah I'm ok, just...you know.
DadWhy don’t you come and pull up a chair.
GinaWell if I do that who's going to make breakfast?
FilonaYeah what's wrong with that?
GinaYou burnt water the last time you were making...what were you making again?
What was that?
(sarcastic) Y eah.
(Laughs again) Idiots.
DadWhat, no not you. This (points at laptop)
FilonaWhat are you watching this time?
DadNothing really. You ever notice that some of the best commercials had the worst tv shows attached to them and to balance it out the dumb ones had the best tv shows.
GinaYou mean tv shows dad.
FilonaYeah it’s the other way around; commercials are attached to tv shows.
DadNo it’s the commercials that drive everything. The tv shows are just fillers for all the good and goofy stuff we want out of life.
DadThink about. Think of your life as a tv show. Slow, prodding, about as exciting as watching two Sloths play tennis; or maybe it's super exciting like watching two Sloths play tennis.
FilonaDad come on now.
DadNo no no just hear me out. I truly believe We exist to be the commercials in each others lives...
Gina(unsure what to say) Dad.
Dad...they guide us to buy and try new things...
Dad...to believe in, the unbelievable, the unfathomable, to open our hearts, and minds and just listen, to certain absurdities as possibilities.
DadDon't say that word nor her name; we're going to treat it like this is a dead-ass Harry Potter novel.
GinaOk. Ok but, you can't sit here everyday feeling sad for yourself because she left.
DadAnd No. Life is not like a box of stupid ass chocolates. It’s like that mouse short, fast and dead.
GinaMouse, what mouse!
DadCommercials. Girls that’s the key. (calmly points to mouse by Filona) it’s over there.
Filona(jumps away) Eeeeeeh.... I don’t see it!!
Is it dead!?
FilonaWho gives a fuck if it's dead or not, it's a fucking mouse.
DadThat’s why I’ve been watching tv shows hour after hour every day. To collect the commercials. Separate the good from the bad. So I can study; So the next one won’t leave me.
Where’s the mouse!!
Dad(To himself) She left me...
Gina & FilonaWhere’s the fucking mouse!!!!!
(Dad Points anywhere, the girls scramble to find it)
DadShe left me to start a Now dead-ass polka dancing mariachi band, after seeing commercials for a Polish vacation and Taco Bell!!!!
(Girls find the mouse and crushes it)
FilonaShit that was close
GinaI think we need to make a run for mouse traps
FilonaI doubt it very seriously you’ll to have worry about anyone leaving you.
GinaHey maybe you’ll find Beyoncés corpified ass..yeah?!
DadYeah.(excited)Let’s go get some bacon!!
(everyone starts grabbing their zombie protective and attack gear)
Gina(throwing mouse in the garbage)
