setback

[Open on a living room set. D70 sits on the couch watching television. After a few moments, Rob enters.]

Rob: Hey, you ready to go?
D70: [No response.]

[Rob moves about the room. He stands in front of the mirror for a moment to put on his tie. He picks up his car keys and quells a shoelace rebellion.]

Rob: Alright. I think I’ve got everything.
D70: [Silence.]
Rob: [Checks his pockets.] Well, let’s go.
D70: [Mutters something under his breath.]
Rob: [Leaning in.] What’s that?
D70: [Mutters again. Slightly louder.]
Rob: Come on, man. We’ve got to leave now. We’re gonna be late.
D70: [Mutters and then falls on his side.]
Rob: What? What’s wrong with you?
D70: [Clicking noises.]

[Rob steps around to the front of the couch. He nudges D70. Clicking. He pokes D70. More clicking. He shakes D70. Clicking. And then, suddenly, D70 bolts upright.]

D70: ERROR!

[D70 slumps back down on the couch, his body completely rigid. Rob begins to sob. As the lights fade, his shoulders began to shake. He screams. Tiny, gnome-like vikings enter and set the couch ablaze. Curtain.]

    I don't know what happened. He's giving me an "Err" message and won't do anything. He left for Nikon service today. We'll see what happens. Hopefully he won't be resting in peace.
