EXT. ZOO — RHINO EXHIBIT — DAY
RED the rhino forages in the shade by a pond. ROGER the piranha watches from the water.
Listen, Rog’. Can’t just be floatin’
‘tween exhibits like you’s a
peacock or bird. You’s a
mutherfuggin’ piranha, dawg. A
movin’ heart attack.
But dude… This Hanz… You gotta
help me find him a new pad, man.
Kinda freakin’ me out…
Rog’. Where’s he fuggin’ go.
Dude’s a goddamn convict. Nobod’
wantsa be fish food fo’ his ass!
FRANK the seagull enters, lands on a branch between them.
Oh. Hey, dude.
Frank, tell this po’ punk he on
his own with this shit.
Oof. Hanz again?
Best of luck there…
Thoughts all you piranhas be
fuggin’ cannibals. Jus’ eat his
skinny ass. Prob’ly thinkin’
the same ’bouts you right now.
Roger freezes. He and Frank look at each other.
INT. ZOO — RAINFOREST EXHIBIT — DAY [FLASHBACK]
Birds! Birds! Birds!
I don’t think this one’s gonna
Roger and Hanz, piranhas, float in a tank. Frank’s perched above, dangling wire mesh. He aims to drop it between the fish again.
Know what, dude? Maybe just try
again tomorrow. Don’t want him
to bust a gill again or somethin’.
Hanz WHIRLS on Roger, murder in his eyes, sizes him up. A beat.
