A Geeky Scene

Yet another draft of the scene I posted from a short I'm trying to write "Ready Eddie". It's now back to being called "Geek" and is still creating way to much work, for very little results. Please feel free to leave me some comments, GOOD AND BAD, so I can then go back and waste more time on it.

FADE IN:


INT. ED'S GUEST ROOM

Two guys, ED (a hip-geek in his twenties) and his friend SAM,
are looking at Ed's walls which are filled with comics and
action figures (all still in their original boxes).

SAM
This has to be the dorkiest room on
the west coast.

ED
Come on, you have action figures.

SAM
Had, had them when I was eleven.

Sam takes a hard look at a Star Wars action figure of Natalie
Portman.

SAM
You do realize that it won't be
long till Val makes you take this
shit down?

ED
No she won't. When she moved in, I
told her she could do whatever with
the house, just as long as I had my
room still. She was fine with that.

SAM
Dude, just give her time.

ED
She's not like that.

SAM
They're all like that. And once
you give in and she has control of
the house, then, soon after, she
will get control of you.

Ed rolls his eyes at Sam.

SAM
I'm serious, it will happen. I
speak from experience.

ED
Yea, you are pretty whipped.

SAM
Maybe so, but it's not too late for
you. You can still stop it, keep
control.

ED
I'm not worried.

SAM
(in a Yoda voice)
You will be.
