END TEASER

CUT TO:

2.03.1 EXT. CONEY ISLAND BOARDWALK – MORNING 2.03.1

SURF CRASHING, SEAGULLS SQUAWKING. BELL JINGLING. Ê

MOBLEY
All right, man, explain this to me
again. Why are you taking me to an
arcade?

ROMERO
Well, I’m trying to tell you, but
you don’t listen. That’s the
problem with your generation too
ADD to really take in this world.

MOBLEY
All right, all right, break it down
for me.

ROMERO
Well, to really get it, I got to
take you back to 1924. Husband-and
wife team, the Bedfords, opened up
a freak show/ dwarf sanctuary on
this land you’re about to be at.

MOBLEY
Dwarf sanctuary?

ROMERO
Yeah, they called it the Bedford
Lilliputian a whole miniature city
scaled down for dwarf and midget
inhabitants. I mean, they also had
other freaks like lion-faced man,
limbless woman, shit like that. But
the dwarves were the big
moneymaker.
Suffice to say, the Bedfords were a
big hit lines around the corner,
the biggest attraction out here in
Coney Island. Then one year, rumor
has it, the husband wakes up one
Christmas morning, grabs a large
kitchen knife, slices his wife’s
throat open, stabs his little kids
to death, then slits his own
wrists.

MOBLEY
Huh.

ROMERO
No motive was ever determined.

MOBLEY
God.

ROMERO
Cut to the 1960s. Woman named Mary
Meghan Fisher decided to buy up the
place, turned it into an old-school
arcade pinball machines, Skee-Ball,
the likes. Called it “Games Games
Games. Shit, a bit on the nose, if
you ask me, not to mention
repetitive, but at least it had
clarity. Mary Meghan even installed
a little bar so she could get drunk
with her friends and shoot pool at
night. And so she did, almost every
night till one time in ’86, she got
so liquored up, she accidentally
fell off the barstool and landed
hard on the pool cue she was
holding.

MOBLEY
Oh.

ROMERO
Went right through her neck, clean.
Killed her right on the spot.

MOBLEY
What in the f are you telling me
this for, man?

DOOR CREAKS AND BANGS.

2.03.2 INT. F SOCIETY ARCADE – CONTINUOUS 2.03.2

ROMERO
Place remained dormant until 2000,
when Ned Bosham bought up the joint
under the name Fun Society
Amusement LLC. Ned wanted to reopen
it as a classic arcade. Now, why
anyone would want to start an
arcade in 2000 beats me, but Ned
Bosham had it in his mind that
that’s what he wanted to do, and so
he did.

CLICKING AND CREAKING.

ROMERO (CONT’D)
About a year ago, his oldest son,
Harold, wanted to sell it, but Ned
wasn’t down with that. So the
oldest son, Harold, being
simpleminded and needing money for
whatever simpleminded folks need
money for, decided Dad had to go.
So Harold stole his twin brother’s
hunting rifle and shot Dad in the
face. Now, what Harold wasn’t
counting on, considering he had
never fired a weapon before, was
the kickback. It kicked back so
hard, he tripped and fell out of
his dad’s 20-story window. By the
time he hit the ground, his head
opened up like one of those
Gallagher watermelons. All this
commotion stirred awake his twin
brother, Clyde, who, as he told it
to me, was in his bedroom catching
some Zs when all this went down. By
the time he got his bearings, he
was immediately arrested for the
double homicide of his brother and
father, being the weapon was in his
name.

MOBLEY
And how do you know Clyde?

ROMERO
He was my cellmate. This place made
him crazy. He thinks it’s cursed.

MOBLEY
(whispering)
Yeah. No shit, Sherlock.

ROMERO
Before I left the clink, he gave me
the keys to the joint and made me
swear to burn it down before it
caused any more ruckus. He swears
it’s haunted believes it is the
nexus of all evil in the universe.

MOBLEY
You buy into any of this shit?

ROMERO
F no, man. I’m too broke to be
superstitious. In a way, all this
hocus-pocus keeps things clean for
whatever it is you need to do. The
public records are in limbo. People
down in county don’t even want to
touch the place. I’m siphoning
electricity from the grid. As far
as anyone’s concerned, it don’t
exist. Now, on the market, this
joint would run you about 5 grand a
month, but since it’s you, I’ll
give it to your guy for half. Come
on, Mobley, don’t give me that
look, man. You know how hard it is
for an ex-con to get a job. Money’s
tight, especially with my mom’s
cataracts. The bills are adding up.

MOBLEY
I’m not here to rent from you,
Romero. I want you to work with us.

ROMERO
Oh, hell no, man. I just got out. I
ain’t trying to go back no time
soon.

MOBLEY
Just hear my guy out, okay? We need
a phreaker. Now, you know you’re
the best in the game.

ROMERO
Don’t try to sweet-talk me, motherf
er. I don’t need you to tell me
who’s the best in the game. I
invented the shit, okay?
Now, either you’re renting, or I’m
finding somebody else, but I cannot
get mixed up in whatever it is
you’re doing.

MOBLEY
Man, this is a chance to get back
at the system that stole six years
of your life. This is a game
changer, man.

ROMERO
Who’s this guy, again?

Angela and I are going to have one

SAUL
Oh, of course.

JIM
Of course.

SAUL
Thank you for dinner, Phillip.

PRICE
Mm-hmm.

SAUL
Don’t get up. It was good to have
met you.

JIM
Pleasure meeting you, Angela. Now
remember, come see us anytime.
We’ll have lunch. On you.

LAUGHING. SIGHS.

PRICE
So did you enjoy the semifreddo?
Was it all I promised?

ANGELA
Yes.

PRICE
Excellent!

ANGELA
Absolutely. It was delicious.

PRICE
Good.

ANGELA
And good company.

PRICE
Jim’s been with us for 27 years.
He’s a Harvard guy lives upstate.
Three kids two in college, one in
high school. Company man through
and through. He’s the reason we do
our Toys for Tots program. And Saul
is the chair of our nonprofit arm.
Good man as well. He has grandkids,
so he’s he’s a little ahead in the
family department. Oh, and another
thing they have in common: they
were both in the room with Colby
when they made that grave error
covering up the leak in your
hometown. Hmm. Ordinary men Capable
of extraordinary things. Our CFO
has discovered that within the last
two years, both Jim and Saul have
been engaged in some nasty insider
trading. Thick as thieves, these
two. They like to buddy up on their
white-collar crimes a regular
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.
There’s enough evidence in there to
put them away for years.

ANGELA
I should get home.

PRICE
Your car will be out front.

ANGELA
Whatever you’re doing, I don’t
trust it.

PRICE
You’re panicking right now. I
understand. It’s a big decision
you’re making, because these men,
their lives will be destroyed. But
the minute you remove emotion from
this, you’ll do just fine.

Heard you had an interesting night.
Chaplain’s an old friend.

ELLIOT
I threw it out for a reason.

RAY
I figured you might want it for
down the road. Trust me, I’ve been
there.
(CLEARS THROAT)
Five years, seven months, three
weeks, and two days ago, my wife
passed away. A few weeks of being
frozen in my own grief, I woke up
one morning, fixed myself breakfast
like I normally do, plugged myself
into my dialysis machine like I
normally do, and started talking
out loud. For a second, I thought I
was crazy. Moved on with the day.
Then the next day, I did it again
talked out loud and the next. And
then I realized who I was talking
to.

ELLIOT
Why are you telling me all of this?

RAY
‘Cause you and me are a lot more
alike than you think, Elliot.

Are you crazy? How the hell you
knocking on my door this early?

DOM
I’m sorry, Mrs. Romero. I’m
Dominique DiPierro with the FBI.
I’m assisting Homicide on your
son’s case. I know it’s early, but
I just had a few more questions
about your son’s murder.

MRS. ROMERO
I already talked to the police!

DOM
I know the cops took all your
joints. I looked through your
files. I also know you have
arthritis and probably can’t roll
’em yourself, so I’m guessing your
son did. I can help roll ’em for
you if you’d like. Used to do it
all the time for my kid brother
back in high school. He always told
me I was pretty bomb at it.

All right! You can come on in.

That boy wasn’t around much, but he
was always doing for me. Always.
God bless him.

DOM
I see you’re moving out.

MRS. ROMERO
Ah, yeah.I can’t stay here no more.
I raised Leslie here, Huh. Too many
memories here.

DOM
Did he go anywhere or do anything
suspicious? Any small detail could
help.

MRS. ROMERO
Well, he be fooling around with
those computers. You guys know
that. He always did that since he
was little. I never understood it.
Gobbledygook, if you ask me.

DOM
Did he have any friends? Did anyone
ever come to the house?

MRS. ROMERO
Friends? Leslie didn’t have no
friends, except that chubby boy.
(coughing)
You mind if you get me grab me a
glass of water? Should be some in
the boxes.

DOM
Oh, yeah, of course. That’s right,
you told the cops someone did come,
but you didn’t see him, right?

MRS. ROMERO
Nope, not with these cataracts. I
can barely make you out from my
cat. Where is that thing, anyway?
Probably ran off like everyone
else.

DOM
Did he say his name? Have you seen
him before?

MRS. ROMERO
Nope. My mind was dancing in the
clouds. All I know is, I can’t live
here no more. Now that I don’t owe
anymore on the place, maybe I can
just rent it. Yeah. Man. Besides, I
need the money.

CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ON TV. DRAMATIC MUSIC.

ELLIOT
What do I do?

RAY
Why did you start writing that
journal in the first place?

ELLIOT
I thought it was the right answer.

RAY
The right answer to what?

ELLIOT
Controlling my life.

RAY (SIGHS)
My wife well, she drove her car
that day. She did everything right.
She always wore her seat belt,
hands at 10:00 and 2:00. She was
the most perfect driver I’d ever
met. (LAUGHING) ÊIt was it was
annoying. She stayed in the lines.
Never went above or below the speed
limit. Stopped at traffic signs.
She followed every rule. And then
one day, none of that mattered.
Control is about as real as a one
legged unicorn taking a leak at the
end of a double rainbow. Then what
do we have? You know that bullshit
people say about how when you fall,
you got to get up? I reject that
shit, man. You know why? The whole
thing is a fall. It can’t help but
be. A perpetual state of grasping
in the dark. It’s not about getting
up. It’s about stumbling, stumbling
in the right direction. It’s the
only true way to move forward.
Whoever it is you wrote about in
your journal, do you still see him?
I can tell the person you’re
writing about meant something to
you. Sometimes he takes over?
That’s why you don’t remember
things?

ELLIOT
I shouldn’t have come. I don’t want
to talk about this.

RAY
Yes, you do. ‘Cause you’re smart
enough to know that keeping this
inside isn’t going to last. You
play chess? I’ve been looking for a
good adversary. Want to play?

ELLIOT (V.O.)
What do you think? Is Ray right?
Maybe it’s not about avoiding the
crash. But it’s about setting a
breakpoint to find the flaw in the
code, fix it, and carry on until we
hit the next flaw the quest to keep
going, to always fight for footing.
Maybe we’re all just stumbling from
the right questions to the wrong
answers Or from the right answers
to the wrong questions. It doesn’t
matter where you go or where you
come from, as long as you keep
stumbling. Maybe that’s all it
takes. Maybe that’s as good as it
gets.
