Script for Choose Your Own Adventure

Int day. Shot takes us through the front door of the panera and into the bathroom. Young man (isam) is standing in front of the mirror. He's looking at himself and adjusting his tie. He looks pround and nervous. His phone rings. The scrren shows a picture of his mom and dad on the caller id. They are really cute.

HilDA (CONT'D)
Would you like a to add a cookie or brownie for only $0.99?
Isam
No thank you.
Go to pager line.
Hilda
Here's your green tea.
Isam looks at it. There's one ice cube. He goes up to the fountain sodas. He looks around sheeplishly. He takes the lid off of the tea and puts in more ice. Ice and drink spill on to his sleeve as the glass overflows. He grabs a napkin and wipes his sleeve and the glass. He looks flustered. The pager rings. He picks up his order. The salad has no chick and is covered with fried onions. He looks like he is going to die. He takes the salad to the garbage can and tries to pick off the fried onions and gets egg on his shirt. He tries to brush them off into the garbage can and ends up brushing part of ths salad in. It looks like crap. He brings the food to Stephanie. Her expression turns from delight to puzzlement to disapproval.
StEPHANIE
You didn't tell them no fried onions and there's no chicken.
She looks at the meal and sees the green tea, which has lots of ice but hardly any tea.
STEPHANIE (CONT'D)
Hmm. Widget dynamics is a really demanding environment. We really look for attention to detail. You can't even get my order right at Panera.
Isam looks stunned and sick.
StEPHANIE (CONT'D)
I don't think this is going to be a good fit.
IsAM
I'm so sorry, it's just that...
StEPHANIE
I'm sorry I wasted your time. I don't think I can eat this. Thanks for coming, anyway. Enjoy your day.
She leaves. Isam's phone rings. Its mom and dad on the caller id. Fade to panera logo.
The end.
