An after-work party leads to a dinosaur cat fight.
By Kevin Corrigan, Brian Murphy & Caldwell Tanner
INT. DINOSAUR OFFICE The dinos have a party in the general office area. A banner hangs that reads "Congrats on a Productive Quarter". TERRY holds up MARY, the intern puppet, but wearing a bow. TERRY Ooo, who brought these? Terry eats her. Reveal INTERN standing beside him. INTERN That's my +1 sir. Cut to: CRAIG is at the snack table eating alone. EMILIA, a beautiful hadrosaurid, approaches. Crash zoom on Craig's face looking love struck. Then a 360 pan around Emilia. CRAIG (INNER MONOLOGUE) Keep it together Craig. Say something charming. CRAIG Most people prefer brand name ginger ale, but honestly, I can't tell the difference. EMILIA Haha. That's very sensible. C.U. on Craig's face. He looks surprised, then happy. CRAIG Why pay extra for a fancy label? SHEILA aggressively joins them. Laughing way too hard. SHEILA You're so funny Craig! Do you do standup comedy? Beat. Craig tries to box Sheila out of the conversation. CRAIG Anyway, I'm Craig. EMILIA Emilia. Nice to meet you. SHEILA Woah. TMI. Too much information. CRAIG So, Emilia, do you like movies? SHEILA I LOVE MOVIES. EMILIA Um. Yeah, movies are fine. Sheila growls and walks away. SHEILA (O.C.) YOU'RE NOT GONNA BELIEVE THIS, CRAIG. THERE'S A CASHEW IN THE ALMOND BOWL. COME SEE. Beat. EMILIA That's a nice tie. SHEILA (O.C.) You tramp! Sheila charges in and starts an all-out dino catfight. Craig looks on and sighs. RICHARD approaches. The fight continues. CRAIG Look at her. Have you ever seen a more beautiful bill? Cut to: Emilia snapping ferociously. RICHARD I know! That's why I married her. Craig looks at Richard in disbelief, then to Emilia and back to Richard then sighs and shakes his head. RICHARD Hey where's your wife? CRAIG I live with my mother.
