Scriptwriter Chronicles: MEN ON THE ROAD (Part 22)

Part 22 - There's A Message In Every Message

Julian and Gerald are in the car discussing Julian's relationship, Sebastian looks on uncomfortably.

Julian
I was an idiot for taking the ring off in the first place

Gerald
I agree

Julian
It was only out of frustration, I love that woman

Gerald
I agree

Julian
When I get home I'm gonna make things right so you two will have to bare with me because I have to sort out things before I drop you two

Gerald
I agr... Julain interrupts

Julian
Gerald either step up your vocab or shut up
Sebastian twiddles his thumbs, knowing he's in a very tight but explosive situation; he sends a text "We need to talk" to Jane, Kim and Nadine.

In David's car, Nadine receives the text but Ritchie intercepts and reads it

Ritchie
Wow, doesnt look good for Cameron does it?

Nadine
Give me the phone!! she takes the phone What do you mean by that?

Ritchie
What does he mean by that? points at phone

Nadine
Its a text! You send and receive messages, it's called technology you twat, it means what it says.

Ritchie
Why so aggressive? You're acting like I caught you out or something

David
I dont know what's going on here but calm down you two, peaceful journey home please

Nadine
Caught me out in what sense Ritchie?

Ritchie
Do I have to spell it out?

Nadine
No you dont. Sebastian sent me a text so what? 1. Its none of your business 2. Last time I checked it was my business 3. I'd appreciate if you stayed out of my business

David
Ok Nadine breathe

Nadine
What's wrong Ritchie? You jealous? upset that I havent given you any attention all day but one text alert and my focus turns to Seb? Get over yourself, you're pathetic. Ritchie stays quiet

David
Wow

Back in Julian's car, Gerald is looking at the text Jane sent to Julian earlier

Gerald
Hmm, alot can be said from a text, then again alot cant be said. So many factors come into it like the tine of the text, the font, the size, the abbreviations, it's fascinating stuff really Julian just stares at him Erm you best keep your eyes on the road

Julian
Im still not sure why exactly I ask for your opinion anymore. I asked for an opinion not an analysis, moron.

Gerald
Oh well then yeah she definitely misses you and forgives you

Julian
It's just the "more" part at the end of the sentence Sebastian begins to register the text in his head and realises the message may have been for him, he stays quiet Is it sarcasm? Did she not finish the sentence?

Gerald
Dont read too much into it

Julian
I thought you said reading was good?

Gerald
Since when do you listen to anything I say? Sebastian receives a text from Nadine. It reads "there'll be plenty to 'talk' about when we get back, trust me" Just get home and sort it out. Julian's car goes over a hard surface and the car bumps causing Sebastain's phone to drop on the floor.

Julian
Sorry fellas, rocky road
Gerald picks up the phone and catches a glimpse of the message and the sender as he give sit back to Sebastian

Sebastian
Thanks

Gerald
Is that right?

Sebastian
What?

Gerald
Just thinking out loud

Sebastian
about?

Gerald
Loyalty. Julian seems to be catching onto it, are you?

Sebastian
Im gettin asked alot of silly questions today

Gerald
Oh so you would prefer serious questions?

Sebastian
Haha no I would like logical questions

Gerald
Ok then, are you ready?

Sebastian
I'm playing Gerald, lets just relax

Julian
No this will actually entertain my journey, fire away Gerald
Sebastian looks at Julian in fear and then at Gerald who has a wry smile on his face...
