(First original MwC script - Pilot (0101) - part 5)


#0101 40. 

  AL  
  Wow.  Well, Mars, what can I say?  
(INDICATES STEVE)
  You've got a heck of a piece of
clay here to work with.
 
  MARCY  
  I like him.  
(SHE LOOKS AT HIM AFFECTIONATELY.
STEVE BEAMS)
  PEGGY  
  We've been married fifteen years.  
(THE RHOADES MAKE APPRECIATIVE SOUNDS)
  MARCY  
  What's your secret?  
  PEGGY  
  Well, it's no secret, really.
You just have to be considerate.
Accept each other for what you are.
Don't point out the fact that the
hair he's losing on his head is now
growing out of his nose.
 
(BEAT)
  And ears.  
(THE GIRLS AND STEVE LAUGHS.  AL STARES
HATEFULLY AT ALL OF THEM)








#0101 41. 

  AL  
(CHUCKLES)
  Yeah.  And accepting the fact that
nowaday it's hard to figure out
where her chest ends and her
stomach begins.
 
(HE GIVES A LITTLE LAUGH, AS PEG GIVES
HIM A JAB)
  PEGGY  
  Marcy, I'll get us some coffee.  
  MARCY  
  I'll help.  
  STEVE  
  Me, too.  
(THE GIRLS EXIT TO THE KITCHEN.  STEVE
STARTS TO GET UP.  AL PUSHES HIM DOWN)
  AL  
  Y'know another thing that makes
woman such a blessing to us?  The
way, when you're sitting there,
and they come over and say...
 
(MIMICS A WOMAN)
  ..."What are you thinking?"  
(NORMAL VOICE)
  And you start thinkin', "If I wanted
you to know, I'd be talkin'."
 
(SNORTS A LITTLE LAUGH)
  (MORE)  





#0101 42. 

  AL (CONT'D)  
  But you can't actually say that,
'cause they'd kill you.  And they're
allowed, too.  It's that whole
period, P.M.S. thing.  I'm no
doctor, but I think P.M.S. stands
for "Pummel Men's Scrotums."  Does
your wife buy you juice, Steve?
 
(ANGLE ON PEGGY AND MARCY IN KITCHEN.
PEGGY IS POURING SPOONSFUL OF INSTANT
COFFEE INTO A CUP)
  MARCY  
  Isn't that an awful lot of coffee
you're putting in there?
 
  PEGGY  
(OFF HAND, AS SHE CONTINUES POURING COFFEE
INTO CUP)
  Yes.  That's for them.  Ours will
be good.  See, if they enjoy eating
and drinking at home, they never
take you out anywhere.  With men,
if you ask them for something,
you'll never get it.  But if you
do some damage to their internal
organs, you've got a shot.  If is
doesn't work, what have you lost?
 
(GIVES HER A CUP)
  Fill this with tap water, please?  
(MARCY GOES TO THE SINK)





#0101 43. 

  MARCY  
  Well, I have to be honest.  So far,
Steve has been the ideal husband.
 
(PEG REACHES UNDER THE COUNTER, BRINGS
UP AN ELECTRIC PERCALATOR, AND POURS
MARCY AND HERSELF A GOOD CUP OF COFFEE)
  PEGGY  
  Oh, really?  I bet the first couple
of weeks you were married, you two
went to bed at the same time.
 
  MARCY  
  Oh, yes.  
  PEGGY  
  Have you noticed, the last month
or so, he's been going to bed a
little later and later?
 
  MARCY  
(AMAZED)
  Why, yes.  
(GOES TO HER)
  How did you know?  
  PEGGY  
  You're letting him slip away, Marcy,
you've got a good thing going.
 
(LIKE A TEACHER, EMPHASIZING)
  Don't start letting him have a
good time alone.
 







#0101 44. 

  MARCY  
  But we still have a good time
together.
 
  PEGGY  
(SMUGLY)
  Then why is he staying up?  
(MARCY THINKS A BEAT, THEN FILLS HER
HUSBAND'S CUP WITH TAP WATER.  ANGLE ON
AL AND STEVE IN LIVING ROOM)

  AL  
  And I'm telling you, aour son is
gonna be a sissy Mary if you let
that woman take away your sports.
 
  STEVE  
(WISTFULLY)
  I used to love sports.  
  AL  
  Of course you did.  You're a man.
But Steve, you can love it again.
 
(HANDS STEVE THE REMOTE CONTROL, THEN,
LIKE A PREACHER)

  Start with me, right now, Steve.
Turn on that TV.  I can't do it for
you.  Turn it on, settle back, relax
and watch sports.
 
(STEVE'S HAND SKAHES A LITTLE.  HE GLANCES
TOWARDS KITCHEN, THEN BACK TO TV, READY TO
TURN IT ON.  ANGLE ON PEGGY AND MARCY IN
KITCHEN AS THEY FINISH MAKING COFFEE)






#0101 45. 

  MARCY  
  You know, lately, he's been getting
up earlier than me, too.
 
  PEGGY  
  That's not good.  Do you have
P.M.S.?
 
  MARCY  
  No.  
  PEGGY  
  Get it.  
(MARCY TAKES THIS IN.  THEY CARRY THE
COFFEE INTO THE LIVING ROOM, AND SEE
AL AND STEVE WATCHING THE BASKETBALL GAME)

SFX:  BASKETBALL GAME

  MARCY  
  Steve!  
  STEVE  
  Hey, shh.  Hey!  
(INDICATES TV, AS HE TAKES HIS COFFEE CUP)
  MARCY  
  I thought we agreed no sports.  
(PEG GIVES AL HIS COFFEE, THEN GOES TO
CHAIR AND SITS)
  STEVE  
(TO AL)
  Nice shot.  
(HE TAKES A SIP OF COFFEE AND REACTS.  AL
SIPS HIS COFFEE APPRECIATIVELY)







#0101 46. 

  MARCY  
(SITTING)
  I demand to know what you do late
at night after I go to bed.  Are
you having fun alone, Steve?
 
  STEVE  
  No.  I just like to stay up and
think.
 
  MARCY  
(STARTS KICKING HER LEG)
  What are you thinking?  
  STEVE  
  If I wanted you to know...  
(HE GIVES AL A LOOK.  AL LOOKS ON
APPROVINGLY)
  Oh.  Just things.  By the way, hon,
I'm going to the game next week
with Al.
 
(AL TAKES ANOTHER SIP)
  MARCY  
  My mother is coming over next week.  
  STEVE  
  Yeah?  She gonna teach you how to
bury me, like she buried her three
husbands?
 
(AL GIVES HIM AN IMPRESSED LOOK)








#0101 47. 

  MARCY  
(AGHAST)
  Steve!  Are you implying that their
suicides had something to do with
mother?
 
(HE STARES AT HER)
  Oh.  Well, if that's your attitude,
maybe I should just pack my bags
and move in with her.
 
  STEVE  
  Great.  Then I could go to bed at
a normal hour.
 
(MARCY LOOKS OVER AT PEGGY, WHO GIVES
HER AN ENCOURAGING LOOK)
  MARCY  
(GETTING UP)
  All right.  Steve Rhoades, let's
go.  We're going home.  It's time
to redefine our relationship.
 
  STEVE  
(HE GETS UP)
  Fine.  I'll be seeing you at the
game next week, Al.
 
  MARCY  
  Peggy, I think we'll be spending a
lot of time together.
 







#0101 48. 

  MARCY  
(SHE GRABS STEVE AS THEY CROSS TO DOOR)
  Come on, Steve.  We've got to talk.  
  STEVE  
  Make it quick.  I'm gonna watch
boxing.
 
  MARCY  
  You'll watch nothing!  
(MARCY AND STEVE ARGUE OUT THE DOOR.
PEGGY GETS UP, CROSSES TO COUCH, AND
SITS NEXT TO AL)

  AL  
  It's gonna be rough for them.  
  PEGGY  
  Yeah, it was rough for us, and
we made it.  Y'know, Bud, got an
A in chool today.
 
  AL  
  No kiddin'.  
  PEGGY  
  Yeah.  
  AL  
(HE SIPS THE COFFEE)
  Let's go out Saturday night.  Y'know,
to eat.  Just you and me.
 
  PEGGY  
  Sure, if you want to.  







#0101 49. 
  AL  
  Yeah.  We haven't been to the
Captain's Table in a long time.
 
  PEGGY  
  Yeah.  We always like it there.
They have a nice menu.
 
  AL  
  Yeah.  You want to go upstairs?  
  PEGGY  
  I thought you wanted to watch the
game?
 
  AL  
  Nah.  Who cares?  
(HE TURNS OFF THE SET)

SFX:  TV OFF

(THEY GET UP AND HEAD UPSTAIRS, AL HAS
HIM ARM AROUND PEG'S SHOULDERS, HERS
AROUND HIS WAIST)

  AL (CONT'D)  
  I like the coffee there too.  
  PEGGY  
  Everything is good there.  
  AL  
  Yeah.  
(HE PATS HER BEHIND, AS WE)

FADE OUT
