Tapioca Cotton ball

INT. STRIP CLUB – NIGHT

ALISON (28, nerdy, clueless) drunkenly clambers up onto the strip club stage. She points down to her friends seated below. ZACH (29, friendly, insecure) and WILL (28, handsome, smart alec).

ALISON
So you think I always play it safe huh? That I’m softer than a cotton ball? Well would a cotton ball do this?

Alison turns to the ANNOUNCER in the corner of the room.

ALISON (CONT’D)
Hit it.

ZACH
This can’t be good, I feel like we should do something.

WILL
The best thing we can do is sit back and support her, because this is sure to be outstandingly terrible.

ANNOUNCER
Alright gentleman we’ve got a special treat for you next. It’s her first time dancing, please welcome…Tapioca.

ZACH
Tapioca? Like the pudding?

WILL
It’s already so good.

ANNOUNCER
Please make her feel welcome as she dances to what she tells me is the best song of 2001.

The announcer hits a button and Hero by Enrique Iglesias starts to play. Alison starts to dance drunkenly. Alison sways from side to side, shoots finger guns at the audience, does a bit of boot scooting. All in a way that she assumes is sexy. She is wrong.

WILL
Oh wow. It’s like watching a train crash happen in slow motion.

ZACH
Oh no, is she playing with her bra straps.

On stage Alison pulls the top of her bra straps up through the neck of her top with her thumbs and pulls on them suggestively. She winks at Zach. The chorus of the song starts and Alison starts to sing along as she flashes her shoulder to the audience.

ALISON
I could be your hero baby…

Next she slowly rolls her sleeves up.

ALISON (CONT’D)
I could take away the pain…

ZACH
Okay seriously we need to stop this. This is all our fault.

WILL
You can’t stop a mess this hot. Plus all we did was tell her the truth. Personally I’m loving this new Alison. Who knew she could be so awkwardly sexy.

ZACH
Oh no, here come the pants.

Alison is trying to be seductive as she pulls her pants off, but they’re to tight to do it effectively. She finally plops down onto the stage in a sitting position and starts to tug on her pant legs, still singing along with the song.

ZACH (CONT’D)
Alright that’s it.

Zach leaps to his feet and runs to the stage.

WILL
Zach, come on. She’s never going to have a solid career as an exotic dancer if you keep mothering her.

Zach collects Alison in his arms. The crowd boo’s him.

ALISON
No, no. I have to keep dancing. The people want more Tapioca.

Zach pulls up Alison’s pants over her exposed underwear.

ZACH
The people have seen you dance enough. You have to leave them wanting more.

ALISON
That’s true. But you said I wasn’t brave. You called me a cotton ball.

ZACH
I was wrong alright, seriously. You are one of the bravest most awesome people I know.

ALISON
That’s all I wanted to hear.

ZACH
Alison I-

Alison puts her finger onto Zach’s mouth and sings.

ALISON
I could be your hero baby. Will! Did you see me dance?

Will joins them as they leave the strip club.

WILL
Well your dancing was okay but your stripping needs a lot of work.

ALISON
Well I didn’t have tear away pants.

WILL
But seriously, that was pretty bad arse. Not bad Al.

ALISON
It’s not Al, it’s Tapioca.
