Cat v. Monkey: Invasion!

SCENE 1:

INT BEDROOM MORNING.

>ESTABLISHING SHOT. 

SOMETHING GLITTERS ON THE FLOOR. AT THE HEAD OF THE BED IN THE CORNER OF THE ROOM, A SMALL GRAY CAT SITS ON THE PILLOWS, STARING DOWN AT A LUMP UNDER THE COVERS. AFTER SIGNFICANT STARING, THE LUMP BEGINS TO STIR AND THE COVERS ARE SHUFFLED BACK.

>POV: MONKEY

A CAT FACE FILLS THE SCREEN, WHISKERS RUFFLING GENTLY IN HER BREATH.

MONKEY
Waugh!

CAT
Monkey, I'm hungry.

>LONG SHOT.

MONKEY STUMBLES OUT OF BED, SOMEHOW AVOIDING BEANING THE CAT WITH EITHER HER ELBOW OR THE COMFORTER. AS THE MONKEY FUMBLES HER GLASSES UP HER NOSE, SHE STOPS IN PLACE, ONE FOOT RAISED.

>POV: MONKEY

AN ARRAY OF GREEN, PINK, RED, BLUE, AND GOLD GLITTERBALLS COVER THE FLOOR IN SOME ARCANE GEOMETRIC ARRANGEMENT.

MONKEY:
You were... busy last night.

>LONG SHOT.

CAT (Hopping down from bed):
Breakfast?

MONKEY:
Well, I can see how you worked up an appetite.

CAT:
Breakfast? Breakfast? Breakfastbreakfastbreakfast?


SCENE 2

>TRACKING SHOT.

INT BEDROOM THROUGH INT LIVING ROOM INTO KITCHEN. MONKEY AND CAT KEEP UP A RUNNING DIALOGUE AS THEY GO, CAT PRANCING AHEAD OF MONKEY AND LOOKING OVER HER SHOULDER EXPECTANTLY.

MONKEY:
So why are you building crop circles out of your glitterballs, anyway?

CAT:
Breakfast? Breakfast? Breakfastbreakfastbreakfast!



SCENE 3

>LONG SHOT.

INT KITCHEN MORNING. MONKEY BEGINS PREPARING CAT'S BREAKFAST.

MONKEY:
Crop circles? Henges? Nasca lines? Are you trying to demonstrate your spatial intelligence?

CAT:
Breakfast? Breakfast? Breakfastbreakfastbreakfast!

MONKEY:
Communicate with alien races? Communicate with space monkeys?

MONKEY SETS DOWN CAT'S BREAKFAST AND PICKS UP THE WATER BOWL.

CAT:
Breakfast! Breakfast! Breakfastbreakfastbreakfast!

MONKEY: (Cleaning water bowl at sink and refilling it)
Summon demons?

CAT: (Face in food bowl)
momblemumblemomblemothershipmumblemomble

MONKEY: (Freezing, with waterbowl in hand)
...did you say mothership?

>POV: MONKEY

CAT: (Looking up, licking whiskers in perfect innocence)
Er. No, I, uh, said "You should have a muffin, slick?"

MONKEY:
"Slick?"

CAT:
Well, you were watching The Electric Company the other night. If the Seventies have infected my brain, it's not my fault.

MONKEY:
...are you sure about that?

CAT:
Absolutely. Boy, this is tasty kibble. Breakfast!

MONKEY: (setting down water bowl)
Actually, a muffin sounds like a nice idea.

>POV: CAT. WE SEE THE MONKEY"S FEET TURNING AWAY AS SHE GOES IN SEARCH OF A MUFFIN.

CAT (sotto voce):
Sucker.
