Slackline

EXT. PARK – DAY

It’s a sunny day and three friends SIMON (24), PHILLIP (25) and ALEXANDER (24) have set up a slack line between two trees in the park. Alexander is currently on the slack line, taking slow, wobbly steps across it, arms out, as the other two cheer him on.

PHILLIP
Don’t fall off Alex.

SIMON
Get in touch with your inner gibbon.

PHILLIP
DON’T FALL OFF!

Alexander is about half way, he loses his balance and falls.

SIMON
Ohhh. Looks like you’re Alexander the not so great.

PHILLIP
Alexander the mediocre.

SIMON
Alexander the average.

Laughing, Alexander joins it.

ALEXANDER
Alexander the excellent?

PHILLIP
No. Alexander the receiver of the good effort award.

SIMON
Alexander the beneficiary of the participation ribbon.

ALEXANDER
Alexander the handsome?

PHILLIP
No, you’re, you’re doing it wrong. Like this. Alexander the disappointment to his father.

SIMON
Alexander the maybe stay at home next time.

ALEXANDER
Alexander the he did his best, and let’s face it, half way is a pretty good effort.

PHILLIP
Alexander the my Mum says I’m cool.

SIMON
Alexander the winner of the game show board game.

Phillip and Alexander look at Simon confused.

SIMON (CONT’D)
Because the losers on game shows always get a consolation prize of the game shows board game.

PHILLIP
It’s pretty thin.

ALEXANDER
Yeah, come on man, you’re better than that.

Simon thinks

SIMON
Alexander the always gets picked last in P.E?

PHILLIP
That’s more like it.

ALEXANDER
He’s back.

PHILLIP
(turning back to the slack line)
Alright. Who’s turn is it?
