Lauren Scene / Heather Scene
INT. RESTAURANT - DAY
Kevin is meeting Lauren for lunch (it's a first date, complete with the incumbent awkwardness)
So, Lauren - your mom tells me
you're a teacher?
Yep. 3rd grade.
Cool. So, uh, you like this
I LOVE this place.
Cool. Me too.
So, how did you get into real
That's a good question. I was
actually studying to be a pastor.
Oh, wow. That's a shift.
Yeah, I tend to take lots of
shifts. Wow, that came out really
No worries. So why didn't you
become a pastor?
I did most of the hard classes.
Greek. Hebrew. Hermeneutics.
And I guess my heart just wasn't
Or maybe you didn't have that
That's a nice guilt-free spin. I
like that. Thanks for that.
Yeah, I really believe I heard the
voice of God in my heart tell me,
very clearly, "Thanks for the
gesture, Kevin, but, ah, no thank
you." If I had become a pastor, I
don’t think any congregation would
have wanted me. I’m not so
patient, and I’ve got a bit of a
I noticed that about you. I heard
you chew out that loan officer the
Sorry you had to hear that. That
No need to apologize to me. Not
much offends me. I mean, the Fbomb
grates on my nerves, but not
because I think it's a
particularly "sinful" word or
anything like that. It just
Like fingernails on a chalkboard.
AAAAAAAAAAh! Don't even SAY that.
(Kevin puts a paper napkin in his mouth.)
Or putting a paper napkin in your
(Lauren maintains an unimpressed look, arms folded over
her chest, looking at Kevin sideways.)
Nope. Doesn't even phase me.
Not even a little?
(Kevin takes the paper napkin out.)
So, on a more serious note, where
did you go to college?
Wow, really? Hillsdale College?!
The bastion of all that is right
and good with America!
With the world. That's the one.
Where did you go?
I did my undergrad at Ohio State,
and then I went to the Assemblies
of God Theological Seminary in
Wow, Assemblies of God. That's
That's me - Mr. all or mothing.
Kevin gets a text from Sam.
It's Sam. He needs me back at my
place. He's probably fallen and
he can't get up.
You're a riot!
Thank you, Lauren. That is the
highest compliment anyone can give
me. I’m a total sucker for people
who think I’m funny. Hey, I'm
glad we did this.
See ya around?
See ya around!
EXT. KEVIN’S CAR - EVENING
We see Kevin & Heather leaving a house they just saw (Kevin is a real estate agent). He opens the car door for her, and they drive to the next house.
That was awful. I can still taste
that kitchen in my mouth.
Want a mint?
I’m gonna need more than a mint to
get that stench outta my system.
You don’t have a cheap cigar in
that purse, do ya?
Ha! There’s got to be a way to,
like, put odor warnings on these
Good idea. Like a scratch n’
(Heather laughs as Kevin writes.)
Client does not prefer the mold /
air freshener / cat pee combo.
I’ll work that in to your search
criteria. I shoulda’ previewed
these houses for you, saved you
Moving forward... totally. The
less time I spend with you, the
(Heather puts her hand on top of Kevin’s. They look at
each other and smile.)
I mean, how does that kind of
smell even happen? Do these
people not have friends or jobs?
Do they never go out?
I know. You’d think someone would
be like, “Hey, John. You smell
like moldy cat pee. You might
wanna have someone out to take a
look at that.”
Who would you even call for that?
A veterinarian? A general
contractor? You’d think the
mailman would say something - you
can smell it from the street. I
mean, isn’t it the mailman’s legal
responsibility to report the
potential harvesting of veterinary
penicillin in a residential
Yeah, that’s a felony, I think. I
guess those odors just happen so
gradually, they never notice it.
I remember growing up - certain
friends had certain house smells.
Maybe it was the various
detergents, or lack thereof.
Sam & Me
Sam & Me is a dark comedy that personifies the relationship between government and taxpayer. "Uncle Sam" is what he sounds like, a symbol for America. It's been purposely sanitized of potentially objectionable language and content, because we believe the market for this film is primarily conservative and religious audiences. While it's not a Christian film, per se, it does portray faith in a positive light, and has a message that will resonate with those who are right of center (a huge market that is woefully under-served when it comes to entertainment).
Director / Writer Brian Kirk has been laboring for decades in the vineyards of stand-up comedy, broadcasting, and writing. The idea for this project was initially a "sit-com" pilot, but evolved into a feature film that is darker than initially anticipated.
If this project meets with financial success, Brian personally guarantees that the actors and actresses who helped make that happen will be rewarded.
