MARK

Tell the folks at home what you're doin', Roger

ROGER

I'm writing one great song be--

MARK

The phone rings

ROGER

Yes!

MARK

We screen

ROGER & MARK'S ANSWERING MACHINE

"Speak!"

COLLINS

Chestnuts roasting--

ROGER & MARK

Collins!

COLLINS

I'm downstairs

MARK

Hey!

COLLINS

Roger picked up the phone?

MARK

No, it's me

COLLINS

Throw down the key

MARK

A wild night is now preordained

COLLINS

I may be detained

MARK

What does he mean?

(phone rings)

What do you mean, detained?

BENNY

Ho ho ho!

MARK & ROGER

Benny!

Shit

BENNY

Dudes, I'm on my way

MARK & ROGER

Great!

Fuck

BENNY

I need the rent

MARK

What rent?

BENNY

This past year's rent which I let slide

MARK

Let slide? You said we were golden!

ROGER

When you bought the building

MARK

When we were roommates

ROGER

Remember you lived here?

BENNY

How could I forget?

You, me, Collins, and Maureen

How is the drama queen?

MARK

She's performing tonight

BENNY

I know

Still her production manager?

MARK

Two days ago I was bumped

BENNY

You still dating her?

MARK

Last month I was dumped

ROGER

She's in love

BENNY

She's got a new man?

MARK

Well-- No

BENNY

What's his name?

BOTH

Joanne

BENNY

Rent, my amigos, is due

Or I will have to evict you

Be there in a few

MARK

The power blows.
