TAFFY BROWN (The Script)


#1

"TAFFY BROWN"



A Parody of Jackie Brown by Elmore Leonard/Quentin Tarantino



--------------------------------------------------------------------------



OPENING CREDITS SEQUENCE: Set to the song “Brickhouse” by The Commodores.



We see Taffy riding her scooter slowly down the street as the music plays. Shes one thick chick! She looks like a mix of Shirley on Whats Happenin meets Yaphet Kotto meets Aretha Franklin. She wears a motorycle helmet that hangs off her head due to the mile of hair extensions shes wearing. Her outfit is bright pink and very tight.



(Backstory: Taffy Brown is a waitress at Sukiyaki Cruller, a Japanese Food/German donut shop in LA. She is tired of being poor and overweight and wearing bad lookin hair extensions. On the side, she delivers “homemade cookies” for her unofficial boss, a part time drug dealer, low budget Famous Amos wannabe named Keyshawn Tobbie (pronounced TOE-BEE). Keyshawn is a badass who dresses like a gangster pimp. He owns Keyshawn’s Kookies.)



FADE OUT.





FADE IN:



On a TV screen showing Teletubbies. They are bouncing around and falling down. One of them kicks the other in the ass. It falls down.



We hear Keyshawn’s trademark pimp laugh. He laughs so hard he starts to choke.



CUT TO:



We see Keyshawn bent over coughing. His friend is slapping him on the back. This man is Luigi Marinara, an old friend of Keyshawn’s. They did time together at San Fellatio Prison years back. Luigi is now a free man again and visiting his friend.



Keyshawn gets his breath again and we hear another laugh, more like a girlish giggle from offscreen.



CUT TO:



A chubby white trash girl wearing a Mickey Mouse t shirt, and tan shorts, smoking a bong. This is Melissa Halston, Keyshawns live in ho.



Melissa (sarcastically whining): You almost died that tiiiiiime Keyshawwwwn.



Keyshawn (angrily still coughing abit): SHUT-THE-FUCK-UP…BITCH!



Melissa (whining): Keyyyy-shawwwwwwn.



Luigi: Melissa, Just be quiet ok? Dont say another word ok?



Luigi is shaking and very nervous like hes ready to snap, he lights another Red Apple cigarette.



Melissa (whining): LUUUU-IIIIGIIIIIIIII.



Keyshawn and Luigi both grab Melissa and they take turns giving her charlie horses and wedgies.



Keyshawn (sitting on Melissas head): TAKE THAT BITCH!!



Luigi (goin nuts): Shut up! Just shut up!



Melissa (whining irritatingly): Stopp iiiiiiiit!!!



We hear a RIP.



Melissa (whining angrily n loudly): YOU LOUSY SONS OF BITCHES TORE MY NEW PANTIES!!!



Keyshawn: You lucky we didnt tear you a new ASSHOLE!



Luigi (now calm, holding a piece of torn pantie): YEAH!



Keyshawn: what…the…fuck?..BITCH YOU SPILT BONG WATER ALL OVER MY GODDAMN FLOOR! YOU BETTA CLEAN THAT SHIT UP!!



Melissa runs bareass into the bathroom crying. Her lardass jiggles like the Teletubbies on TV earlier. Before she slams the door we hear a fart.
