Suddenly, the plug is pulled. The TV flickers off.

CUT TO:

THE PRESENTATION TITLES, THEN -

CUT TO:

INT. SARA'S LIVING ROOM - DAY

Harry Goldfarb, young twenties, is an eccentric kid with a
seductive smile.

He tries to stop his mother, Sara Goldfarb, from locking
herself in the closet.

HARRY
Ma! Ma! C'mon, Ma!

SARA
Harold. Please. Not again the TV.

She slams the door closed and Harry talks to the shut door.

HARRY
Why do you have to make such a big
deal
out of this? Eh? You know
you'll have the set back in a
couple of hours.

No answer.

2.
HARRY
Why ya gotta make me feel guilty?
(frustrated)
Ahhh...

Harry walks across the room to the early eighties TV with
ridiculous rabbit ears.

Sara locks the door and retreats to the back of the closet.

Harry starts to push the set on its stand when suddenly it
jerks - almost falling. Harry spies a thick bicycle chain
going from around the TV to the radiator.

HARRY
Jesus! Whatta ya tryin' to do, eh?
You tryin' to get me to break my
own mother's set? Or break the
radiator?

Harry marches to the closet.

HARRY
..an' maybe blow up the whole house?
You tryin' to make me a killer?
Your own son? Your own flesh and
blood
? WHATTA YA DOIN' TA ME?
YOUR OWN SON!!!

Then, a thin key slowly peeks out from under the closet door.
Harry works it out with his fingernail and yanks it up.

HARRY
Why do you always gotta play games
with my head?
Don't you have any considerations
for my feelings? Why do you have to
make my life so difficult?

And then, meekly from the closet -

SARA
Harold, I wouldn't. The chain
isn't for you. The robbers.

HARRY
Then why didn't you tell me? The
set almost fell. I coulda had a
heart attack.

Sara shakes her head in the darkness.

SARA
You should be well, Harold.

3
HARRY
Then why won't you come out?

Harry tries to open the locked closet door but can't.

HARRY
See what I mean? See how you
always gotta upset me?

Harry walks to the TV, unlocks the chain and starts to wheel
the TV towards the front door. He pauses by the closet.

HARRY
Ma? Ma? C'mon out? Please, Ma.

No response. Inside, Sara hugs her knees.

Then, he throws up his hands, mumbles -

HARRY
Eh, screw it.

- and pushes the set carefully out of the apartment.

In the closet, Sara hears the door shut. She mumbles to
herself -

SARA
It's not happening. And if it
should be happening it would be
alright, so don't worry, Seymour.
It'll all work out. You'll see
already. In the end it's all nice.
