Transcript Edit

Intro Edit

199420th Century Fox logo, with chatter in the background.

We cut to a television show set with an interviewer using body language to tell the cameraman to start rolling.

INTERVIEWER:
Hello ladies & gentlemen, Julia Ensten here, and today on The Julia Esten Show i'm interviewing Daniel & Alana Ribon, a couple who are becoming recognized for studying DNA and genetic diseases since 1991, trying to find cures for diseases like cancers and Alzheimer's. And fortunately, their efforts are proving successful. Daniel, could you explain your influences for this?

DANIEL:
Well Julia, my influences for searching for a cure to horrific genetic diseases like cancer came from many years ago. You see, ten years ago, my mother was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. She had been planning to quit smoking, after finding out the consequences, but unfortunately for her she was too late. Two years later, she passed away and I awfully damaged from this. I was now an orphan.

INTERVIEWER:
Wow, i'm awfully sorry for your loss.

DANIEL:
Well...let's just say the damage has been done. Once the closest person to you dies, you're permanently damaged by it. You become corrupt, sleazy and grief stricken. For about five months I cried most of the time. I usually called Alana at early hours of the morning. Usually 4AM.

ALANA:
Oh yeah, poor guy had severe eye bags.

DANIEL:
And lots of sleep deprivation.

INTERVIEWER:
Well, I do hope you find a cure. Do you have any other plans aside from finding cures for diseases?

ALANA:
Oh yes. We're working on something for two years now which I find totally brilliant at the moment but it's a secret for the time being.

DANIEL:
What we're working on now will amaze everyone i'll tell you that much. But as Alana said, we don't want to show it yet.

INTERVIEWER:
Hm, if it's private, it must be very great.

DANIEL:
Oh, it is. 

INTERVIEWER:
It better be as great as you're calling it. 

Interviewer looks into the camera

INTERVIEWER:
Thank you for coming. Daniel & Alana Ribon, ladies and gentlemen! We will see you next Sunday on The Julia Ensten show.

ALANA:
Daniel, be frank with me. Did I look good in that interview?

DANIEL:
You looked fine. Why do you always ask this, when we do interviews? 

ALANA:
I'm sorry, I just get (pause) I just get self-aware sometimes.

DANIEL:
I see.

Beat

ALANA:
I've been having thoughts...what would happen if someone found out about what we're doing?

DANIEL:
Probably some very bad things. Government would kill us maybe.

ALANA:
Let's hope one of us doesn't fuck up and reveal our plans.

DANIEL:
Let's hope.

SMASH CUT: Daniel in the lab working on DNA, Alana then walks into the lab

ALANA:
How's it going?

DANIEL:
It's doing fine. There's some difficulties here and there, but it's doing completely fine.

ALANA:
That's good, really good. Coffee?

DANIEL:
No, but thanks for the offer.

ALANA:
Whatever floats your boat.

SMASH CUT: Alana walking out of the lab into the kitchen, a phone rings which causes Alana to pick it up.

ALANA:
Alana here, who's this? (beat) Oh, Lillie! How have you been doing? (beat) Oh, you wanna come over?

CUT: Daniel signing to Alana to hang up the call, with Alana getting confused. Daniel frantically waves hands, implying that Lillie can't come over.

Alana: Alright, uh, maybe some other time? Daniel and I are working on something important.

Alana looks over, and we cut to Daniel giving the thumbs up. Alana sighs and walks over to Daniel's work station.

Alana: I get that you despise people visiting when we're working, but Lillie doesn't usually come over, can you stop being so secretive about what we're currently doing? 

DANIEL:
What are you, nuts? You do remember me mentioning the possibility of, oh I don't know, us getting killed if a wrong person knows about what we are doing? You may call me paranoid, but remember, I am the smartest guy in the room.

ALANA:
Well, I am the smartest gal, if you aren't well aware. And while you're working on our little DNA project, imma make myself a coffee.

DANIEL: If you insist.

SMASH CUT: Alana in the kitchen getting ready to make coffee.

Alana opens the fridge and starts fidgeting around, she then sighs

ALANA:

Daniel?

DANIEL:

Yeah?

ALANA:

There's no milk, would you be fine with me leaving to get some?

DANIEL:

Mm-hm.

Alana then walks out of the room.

Daniel:

Wait, what do you mean Lillie's here?

ALANA:

Oh, I met her at the store yesterday, I thought you'd be fine with it.

Daniel's expression grows angry, then he lightens up.

DANIEL:

Okay, you can let her in. But i'm locking the lab! No one, and I mean no one finds out about this, not even Lillie.

ALANA:

I understand.

Okay, let her in.
