Spike Script Sides

SPIKE
Yup, that’s my name. Don’t wear it
out.
VANYA
I’ll try not to.
SONIA
Is Spike the name you were given at
birth?
SPIKE
No, it’s my acting name. My real
name was Vlad. But my agent said that that was hard to hear, and I was wearing my hair all spikey that day, and he said, why don’t you call yourself Spike. And so I do.
MASHA
Spike is a very gifted actor. He
was almost cast in the sequel to Entourage, Entourage 2. HBO thought he was wonderful.
VANYA
I’m sorry, who is Spike? Is he your
driver?
MASHA
He’s my beloved!
SPIKE
I’m hot.
VANYA
Oh yes? Shouldn’t you leave that
for others to say?
SPIKE
No, I mean I’m warm. The air is
warm, I’m hot.

SPIKE (CONT’D)
That pond that’s out there. Can you
swim in it?
MASHA
Did you bring a suit?
SPIKE
I can just strip to my underwear.
See you later, babe, I’m gonna go cool off in the pond.
