INT. DINOSAUR OFFICE - BREAK ROOM CRAIG and SHEILA, a stegosaurus with a brown beehive hairdo, glasses and lipstick, are drinking coffee. CRAIG Don't even talk to me until I've had my morning coffee. SHEILA OK. CRAIG I was kidding. You can talk to me. Beat. TODD walks into the room. TODD Hey, put on the news, they're talking about the asteroid. CRAIG turns the TV on with one of his horns. ON SCREEN: SUSIE "THE MONSOON" STONE, a stegosaurus like Sheila, with no glasses and with long blond hair, does the weather. SUSIE STONE Good morning, Pangea. SHEILA Where do they find these weather girls? They're so skinny. Susie gestures at a GREEN SCREEN MAP OF PANGEA. SUSIE STONE An asteroid warning is in effect for all of the supercontinent. TODD I hope we can work from home tomorrow. Traffic is going to be a nightmare. The green screen now shows the Earth. SUSIE STONE Expect scattered showers later... Susie points to swirly clouds on the screen. SUSIE STONE ...leading into a level 5 asteroid, ending life as we know it. Screen displays a massive asteroid hitting the Earth and knocking it into the sun, causing it to explode. CRAIG They always blow these things out of proportion. It's all about the ratings. TODD Like that volcano last week. It was supposed to scorch the Earth. (beat) It only scorched half of the Earth. SHEILA My neighbors across the street were incinerated, but we didn't even lose power. SUSIE STONE This just in: the asteroid is going to be smaller than anticipated- CRAIG See? It was a big deal over nothing. SUSIE STONE -and it's headed straight for the office of Dino Corp Incorporated. TODD Oh no. CUT TO: An asteroid crashes into the Dino Corp Incorporated building in an epic, slow motion explosion, destroying it. Back to break room: TODD I have stock in that company. END.
