I missed my deadline for Beyond Space and time but here is why. This is a new Script I made. Enjoy!
INT. PLANE NIGHT
SAM, having just woke up,begins to rub his sore neck and
try to clear the sleep from his eyes. Looking around the
plane he is shocked to find only one passenger remains. The
passenger, a CHILD dressed in a black suit, is standing in
the isle and staring at him.
Where the hell is everyone?
The CHILD studies him for a moment and then answers in a
calm and confident manor. The child voice portrays no child
Do you always address children with
such harsh language?
That's not important, just tell me
Everyone has gone their separate
What the hell is does that mean?
Look around, what does it mean to
Well obviously it means everyone
has gotten off the plane. Why
didn't anyone wake me?
There was no reason to.
No Reason! I would have liked to
get off the plane with everyone
else, that's a good reason. Move
SAM gets up and opens the compartment above him to get his
baggage but there is nothing there. He searches through some
of the near by compartments which are all also empty. The
CHILD only observes him.
Great, someone took my bag. This
airline is not going to hear the
end of this.
No one took your bag.
What! Where is it then.
Right where you left it.
Funny kid, I don't have time for
I have no reason to joke.
Screw it I'll deal with that later.
SAM jogs to the front of the plane with a sense of
frustration. He finds the door closed and attempts to open
it but cannot. The child calmly walks to the door.
Try reading the directions. They're
printed above the door.
I shouldn't need directions to open
a damn door!
You're right, they wouldn't help
What is that suppose to mean?
Well what would you do if you did
get the door open.
Get the hell of this plane.
SAM paueuses and looks at the child. He appears to think for
a second then goes to the nearest window and looks outside.
It is dark outside but it is apparent that the plane is
still flying. SAM seems to be puzzled.
I thought you said everyone got off
That's what you said.
Why doesn't if feel like the plane
Are you sure you can feel anything?
What kind of question is that, of
course I can.
This doesn't make any sense.
SAM walks to the pilot's cabin and knocks on the door. His
knock opens the door slightly and after a pause he walks in.
The equipment is all operating but there is no one there.
SAM sits down in the pilot's seat and the CHILD seats next
Quite the site isn't it.
(Off in his own world)
Sitting here gives you a different
sense of the sky. As though you
have power, yet there is also so
SAM does not respond, only looks out the window as if he is
trying to figure out what is going on.
You have control of the plane and
where you are going, but how do you
really know? How can you trust that
all this equipment works as
They test it. It wouldn't be on the
market if it failed testing.
True... at least you hope. You put
faith in the idea. You believe that
What are you trying to say?
The CHILD says nothing and gets up and walks back to SAM's
original seat. Once there he turns around and looks back at
SAM as if waiting for him. SAM takes another look out the
window of the sky and walks back to his seat, sitting down
We left during the day but the sun
is just coming up now, this was
only suppose to be a 3 hour flight.
The flight you got on was only a
three hours long.
Why can't I remember getting off
and changing planes then?
This flight required no plane
My boss is going to kill me for
missing my meeting....I knew it was
a bad idea to take a nap on the
Your boss won't concern himself
You don't know my boss. I may be
our company's key employee but he
still gives me no lee-way. We had
so much riding on that meeting.
The work you have done for your
company will influence the world.
Not without funding.
The CHILD does not respond but only studies SAM. SAM lays
his head back in the seat and attempts to go to sleep.
Well, I guess I'm stuck, I may as
well get some more rest.
The CHILD still does not respond. After a moment SAM opens
his eyes and gives up trying to sleep.
I don't seem to be tired at all.
Being tired is something people
SAM studies the CHILD for a moment and then appears to
appears to come to grips with the truth. In the window
behind him we see the sun just being to rise on the horizon.
Don't worry, it takes everyone a
(After a moment)
I have so many questions.
They will all be answered, but for
now just sit back and relax.
SAM sits back in his chair and the child stands next to him.
The CHILD looks straight forward emotionless as SAM turns
his head to look out the window at the rising sun.
