My Kung Fu is the best.
INT - AIRPLANE - ONE WEEK LATER OCTOBER 13
MULDERSMASH CUT TO:
Ok, where are we
Water splashing in the B.G. in the pool, Mulder and Krycek are fighting, we hear insults being yelled in Russian. Skinner bends down and playfully kisses Scully on the cheek.
SMASH CUT TO:
INT - DINING ROOM - DARK
Byers flips on the lights.
Magazine Girl #1 and Magazine Girl #2 go over to Krycek and start to gently caress his face.
MAGAZINE GIRL #2Off this horrible image... we
Happy Birthday Fox.
FADE IN CLOSE - KRYCEK'S FACE
he looks dead and very well may be. All is quiet.
MULDER (V.O.)We PAN UP, the feel should be as if we are Krycek's spirit leaving his body. A hand comes into view, limp, dead-like, it is Marita's. As we PAN UP more a headcomes into view it is Mulder's/.
We thought this was the end...
MULDER (V.O.)We can now see Mulder, Krycek and Marita's whole bodies sprawled out on the boat deck, we PAN UP FURTHER to reveal Scull, Skinner and The lone Gunmen all seemingly dead.
... our nice voyage
to Hawaii ruined...
MULDER (V.O.)WE now see that even the cruise boat employees are "dead". The atmosphere should be oine of what it would seem if the world had suddenly been destoryed by a nuclear bomb. Very quiet, even peaceful. There is abeat more of this heavenly silence, until...
... by something far
worse than we could
CLOSE - MAGAZINE GIRL #1
She looks very very pissed off, but ina ditzy way, upset that everyone has passed out.
MAGAZINE GIRL #1They both stand there pouting, glaring at the passed out bodies.
MAGAZINE GIRL #2
(equally as ditzy, maybe worse)
I don't know-uh.
MULDER (V.O.)ANGLE - PASSED OUT BODIES ALL OVER THE DECK
...then our prayers
were answered by a
known force from above...
We see dots of rain landing on the boat's deck, the rain gets harder and harder there is some subtle movemet from thebodies ... some coughing ...
SMASH CUT TO:
CLOSE ANGLE - MAGAZINE GIRL #2'S FACE
She is drenched, her makeup literally painted on her stupid face, smeared together like a very bad piece of art (or crap if you prefer that better). She looks very upset in her stupid ditzy way.
MAGAZINE GIRL #1They haven't even thought of what their makeup ios doing because of the rain they are only mad that; their hair is ruined.
(same facial condition)
OH MY GOD! MY HAIR!
They start to run off... forgetting where they are and that there is something blocking their way, they run into the barrier and FLIP overboard... SCREAMING. There is silence again. The boat continues on without them, leaving them in the ocean... but not everything dies.
NEXT DAY - NOON - DECK
Marita and Scully are on lounge chairs, wearing bikinis (Scully in a lime green one and Marita in a white one). They are working on their tans. In the BG we barely see Frohike filming and taking pictures ... he's a bit excited.
You know, Marita, it
is so nice to get out
of the basement and
into the sun.
I know what you
mean, I'm so sick
of cigarette smoke.
There is a moment of silence as they relax in the warm sunlight. Suddenly, Scully begins to giggle.
(re: Scully's laugh)
Scully laughs harder.
SCULLYScully bursts out laughing even harder.
F-frohike set Mulder up
on a date with one of
them a few weeks ago!
(beat)A-and she couldn't
remember who he was!
Both of them break out laughing, they are in hysterics.
(imitating Magazine girl, flipping hair)
(Laughing, using hands to open eyes wide)
She sticks her toungue out and makes dying noises.
(imitating Magazine girls)
Oh my God!
The both relax all their muscles and act dead. A beat passes and they burst out laughing agian. They stop laughing again for another beat.
(muttering, trying not to laugh, serious)
They burst out laughing again. In the b.g. Frohike past behind them snapping a polaroid. Suddenly, Marita gets serious in a friendly kind of way.
So how are you and Walter?
Scully gives Marita a sly smile.
Dana, I know you better
than this, come on.
Scully turns onto her side to face Marita, and shows her a ring.
Oh my God! Dana!... When?
At this, Skinner approaches them and Scully makes a gesture for Marita to drop the issue.
Scully smiles at the nickname.
So Walter, is there
anything you want
to tell me?
Marita is trying to hide her extremely wide grin, she knows what she wants him to tell her.
Well, there's free drinks
at the bar today (beat)
don't tell Alex.
Mulder and Krycek at the front of the cruise boat, re-enacting "Titanic"...
I'M THE KING OF THE WORLD!
(pumps his fists in the air)
(looking at Mulder, not amused)
Ok, so while you're the king
of the world, I'm God of the
world, no get down!
(eyes closed weak voice)
But I'm flying...
From behind Mulder, Krycek's hand grabs Mulder's shoulder, and pulls him down.
Didn't I tell you
to get down?
Mulder looks disappointed, and he pouts...
TIME CUT TO:
INT. MULDER'S NEW ROOM - EVENING
Mulder, in his very own bedroom... The Lone Gunmen charged Krycek's card again because Krycek got pisses and wanted his money's worth, kicking Skinner and Mulder out. Mulder is changing into a tuxedo, he stands in front of the mirror... admiring himself...
A knock at the door startles him.
Mulder takes one last glance in the mirror before answering his door.
Mulder swings the door open to reveal... Scully... dressed in a nice dark red velvet, long dress, with spahgetti straps. She gives him a smile.
Oh hey, Scully.
I uh... got you something,
for your birthday. I didn't
want to give it to you in
front of everyone.
She hands him a small box. Mulder gets a goofy grin on his face...
FORMAL DINING HALL - EVENING - *MAGIC HOUR*
A big dining room... low lighting with a huge chandalier. Large round tables fill up all the space. Each table has candles on them. About 150 people are in the room... all the men are wearing tuxedos, the women formally dressed. There is a live band, with blue lighting, a dance floor, and plants in the corners of the room, maroon table cloths cover each table with white candles.
Doormen open the doors for Mulder and Scully as they enter the dinning hall. They are laughing at something dumb that Mulder has said. They are greeted by The Lone Gunmen.
BYERSAll The Lone Gunmen are also dressed in tuxedos... even Langly... and it's not his tuxedo t-shirt. All five of them approach the table where Skinner, Marita and Krycek are. Krycek and Skinner are in tuxedos and Marita is in a light blue long silk dress, that's more revealing than most other clothes that she wears, she looks uncomfortable in front of all these men. Skinner stands up and pulls out a seat for Scully as Mulder and The Lone Gunmen take their seats.
We found us a table
over here. (beat)
We've been waiting for you.
They are still in the dinning room... but it's empty... except for them. They are all talking and enjoying themselves, soft music is being played by the band.
Inspired... Mulder stands up...
I've always wanted to do this...
Oh please don't get up
and sing like he did.
(he points to Krycek)
I did NOT sing!
Why do you guys
always insist I sang?
Because you did...
Please don't bring
this up again...
While everyone is arguing over this, Mulder takes one end of the tablecloth, grins and pulls as hard and as fast as he can. Off goes everything with it, plates, glasses, candles still lit, flowers, a card game the Lone Gunmen were playing...
Everyone falls silent and look towards Mulder.
Well. (beat) Guess that
didn't work, now did it?
Mulder sits back down, and everyone keeps looking at him...
INT. LONE GUNMEN ROOM - EARLY MORNING
The sun is just peeking through the curtains. Langly's head is on the keyboard of a computer. Frohike is sleeping in a chair and Byers is sleeping peacefully in his bed...
SCULLY & MARITA'S ROOM
Scully and Skinner are sleeping in a bed together, she is wrapped in his arms... both peacefully sleeping... and a sparkling diamond ring is on Scully's engagement finger.
KRYCEK/MULDER/SKINNER'S ROOM - NOW JUST KRYCEK'S ROOM
The room is a disaster area. There is a trail of formal cloths to the bed... Marita and Krycek are in a love lock on the bed. There is a lamp broken on the floor and a camcorder set up on a tripod next to the bed...
Mulder sitting out on the deck bondering life. He looks at the gift Scully gave him. In his hands he has a locket with a picture of he and Samantha in it. There is a peaceful expression on his face and slight smile as a waitress brings him fresh squeezed orange juice. A moment later, Scully joins him.
She wears a bath robe and slippers... she has bad morning hair... She quietly sits down next to Mulder.
Mulder glances over and notices the ring on her hand, but doesn't say anything.
(something on her mind)
Did you hear Marita and Krycek?
(glad for the comic relief)
I think I heard a lamp break.
They share a laugh... there is another quiet moment.
MULDERScully stands up, smiling at her friend...
Thank you, Scully.
For remembering my birthday.
No problem Mulder.
(pats him on the shoulder)
Mulder watches as Sclly shuffles off back to her's and Skinner's room... he's glad that she found someone, he gives a classic Mulder grin as he lifts a spoon of his "Lucky Charms" to his mouth and enjoys...
