Prankster

INT. LOUNGE ROOM – DAY

DANIEL (27) sits on a comfortable couch in a modern lounge room, he types on his laptop. His brother, NATHAN (27), enters from down the stairs, he looks confused.

NATHAN
Daniel, did you, did you make my bed?

DANIEL
YES! Ha ha ha, ohh, I got you so good! You should see your face right now! You got pranked brother, you got pranked good! Classic!

NATHAN
Making someone’s bed is not a prank.

DANIEL
Yes it is, and you fell right into it. Oh man, what a rush. I’ve got to start pranking people more!

NATHAN
I don’t mean to bring you down from this crazy high you’re on, but it’s really not a prank to make someone’s bed.

DANIEL
Of course it is, it’s a classic Daniel prank.

NATHAN
Have you ever heard of the classic ‘making someone’s bed’ prank before?

DANIEL
No, but that’s what makes it so good, I invented it. You’ll see, it’ll catch on.

NATHAN
With who? Maids?

DANIEL
Woah, Nate, don’t get angry just because I pranked you so good.

NATHAN
It’s not a prank! Prank’s are meant to be mischievous! If anything they’re usually a little bit cruel. I feel like I should thank you for mine!

DANIEL
Oh Nate, you’re such a prank novice.

NATHAN
I’m the prank novice!

DANIEL
Yes. You see, before pulling my incredible prank I did hefty research on the topic and as it states here.

Daniel reads from his laptop.

DANIEL (CONT’D)
A practical joke is a trick or joke played on someone, generally causing the victim to experience embarrassment, perplexity, confusion, or discomfort. You see?

NATHAN
No, because I didn’t feel embarrassed! And making someone’s bed cannot be classed as a trick, it’s a favour! What the hell is going on?

DANIEL
See, I did prank you! Perplexity and confusion. Classic symptoms of a prank. I didn’t want to make you embarrassed or discomforted, that seemed to mean, so I focused on the other two.

Nathan raises his hands up in defeat.

NATHAN
Well, I guess you’re right. You pranked me.

Nathan sits down next to his brother.

DANIEL
Don’t feel bad, I’ll teach you how to prank. It can be a new thing we do.

NATHAN
So we’re going to go around doing chores for each other?

DANIEL
Yes! But when the other person least expects it!

Daniel laughs uproariously. Nathan chuckles at him.

NATHAN
You are so weird.
