Disclaimer I don't own any of the Syndicate members, or West Side Story.
A TV set in a smoke-filled room. Miami Dolphins vs. Green Bay Packers football game is on. Miami has the ball and they are heading for another touch down. They get it and the crowd continues to be wild.
CUT TO REVEAL:
INT. EAST 46TH STREET, NEW YORK - DAY
The established dark home of the Syndicate. First Elder is not happy with the game... and it shows.
Everyone ignores him and continue to watch the game. But in the B.G. we notice Quiet Willy, twittleing his thumbs, trying to be innocent, as he looks a little too happy for the Dolphins.
Krycek BURST through the door, very loud, probably trying to give the First Elder a heart attack.
He tosses a few pizza boxes on a table, causing a glass to fly off the table and shatter.
He looks at the TV.
First Elder glares at him.
The Second Elder walks over to inspect the pizza boxes.
The Second Elder digs through the pizza.
They're not bugged?
Krycek looks at him oddly.
Krycek plops down into a chair. The Second Elder glares at him.
The crowd cheers on the TV.
Quiet Willy jumps up in the b.g. and starts to do a 'happy dance'.
First Elder senses movement behind him and turns around only to see Quiet Willy dancing. Quiet Willy quickly stops dancing in mid position.
Quiet Willy quickly, and quietly, shakes his head 'no'. He quickly sits down. First Elder stomps over to him and starts to argue. Quiet Willy tries to explain only with his actions, as First Elder continues to yell.
The emergency phone line rings, shutting everyone up.
First Elder looks panicked, along with Second Elder. Krycek just continues to watch the game... he could care less.
The Well-Manicured Man calmly picks up the phone.
Marita is on the other line.
He looks towards the First Elder... this only panics him more.
INT. EAST 46TH STREET - DAY
The Well-Manicured Man hangs up the phone.
TIME CUT TO:
INT. EAST 46TH STREET - NIGHT
All the lights are off. The TV is still on. They are now watching West Side Story.
The Elders, Well-Manicured Man, and Quiet Willy are very very into the movie. They are also oblivious to:
Marita and Krycek in the b.g. very into eachother. It's a shock that the group doesn't hear their moans or even notice that they have left the couch.
(to 2ND Elder)
The door suddenly opens and the lights come blindingly on.
The Cigarette-Smoking Man has entered.
(holding up movie box)
"West Side Story"...
The Group turns to see what the Smoking Man is referring to.
Marita and Krycek finally notice they have been noticed.
What would your mother think?
She's not here.
Smoking Man is irritated.
Getting their attention.
Caused by what?
First Elder shows panic in the b.g.
Then our survival is inconceivable.
Well... she asked me, 'why
did the chicken cross the
road?' (beat) and I said 'I
don't know'. She told me...
(to Marita) How did that go?
Mulder's explanation would
be that it was a government
conspiracy. And Dana would
say that it was some kind
of bio-mechanical reflex
commonly found in chickens.
(AUTHOR'S NOTE: I didn't make that joke up. It was given to me by a friend, and I have no clue who came up with it.)
No one finds them amusing.
TIME CUT TO:
INT. EAST 46TH STREET - LATER THAT NIGHT
"West Side Story" has ended and now they have put in "The Matrix". First Elder has gotten bored and is looking around the room. He spots something on the floor... He jumps up and turns on the light.
They all look at him, save for Krycek who is too into the movie.
He points to something on the ground... a cockroach. Krycek glances over.
Second Elder gives him a look.
You kill it, you saw it.
Are you nuts? I'm not
getting near it.
Marita has had it.
An assistant to the Syndicate enters the room.
Let him in.
The Assistant exits. The whole room now looks professional, except for Krycek who just wants to watch the movie. The pizza has been hidden under the table in plain sight.
Moments later, Jeffrey Spender enters with a six pack of beer. He walks over to Krycek and hands the six pack. Krycek gives Spender a twenty-dollar bill.
It's twenty-five dollars.
Quiet Willy turns the tv back on.
If you don't give me the
money... I'll give Mulder
a copy of that tape you
and Marita made-
Like break down a wall?
(beat) Oh wait, he's already
Give him the money, Alex.
Krycek gives Spender the money, and he leaves.
Marita looks at Krycek.
How did he get the tape?
TIME CUT TO:
INT. MULDER & KRYCEK'S APARTMENT - LATE NIGHT
The TV is on, on a low volume that is hardly hearable. The apartment is dim from the tv light. Mulder has been waiting up.
O.S. Mulder hears laughter. He looks towards Krycek's door as it burst open! Mulder stands up as Krycek and Marita stumble into the room.
Mulder finally takes a good look at both of them.
You let him do this?
He's just so cute!
She hugs Krycek and gives him a kiss on the cheek. Mulder rolls his eyes, and walks back to the living room.
They aren't paying attention to Mulder. Marita is whispering something in Krycek's ear.
Krycek suddenly bursts out laughing.
Mulder turns startled at the sudden outburst of noise. He walks back over to them.
Krycek and Marita are still laughing as Mulder lectures them.
(yelling on purpose)
SURE THING, BUDDY!
Mulder rolls his eyes and walks into his bedroom.
They look in the direction Mulder just went for a beat, and then start laughing hysterically.
