Presto Pest-Go – Scene 3

This scene is part of a pilot episode for a sitcom that I wrote as part of my Masters. See past days to catch up on the rest of the episode.

EXT. PRESTO PEST-GO CARPARK – DAY

Prabir sits in his old Ford Laser in the car park of the Presto Pest-Go Extermination Agency. The car is parked but Prabir still sits in it, both hands on the steering wheel. We see the rearview mirror where Prabir once again talks to himself.

PRABIR
Okay Prabir, time to stop being a coward, get in there and learn how to be an exterminator!

Cut to Prabir’s face.

PRABIR (CONT’D)
I don’t want to do this, I don’t know how to kill anything! There will be rats and mice and insects! I hate insects! So many legs, and why are their skeletons on the outside of their body!

Back to rearview mirror reflection.

PRABIR (CONT’D)
Do you want to go back to India!

Back to face.

PRABIR (CONT’D)
No.

Back to mirror.

PRABIR (CONT’D)
That’s right, so you need this job. Plus it’s your first day. It will probably just be all orientation and filling in paper work.

Back to face.

PRABIR (CONT’D)
You really think so!

Back to mirror.

PRABIR (CONT’D)
I don’t know, I’m you! You really need to stop talking to yourself in mirrors.

Back to face.

PRABIR (CONT’D)
This is the worst pep talk ever.

Prabir gets out of the car and starts walking across the car park towards the building. Half way across he panics and rushes back to the car.

PRABIR (CONT’D)
Oh man, I really thought I was going to do it. Oh boy. I need a mirror.
