INT. MARTIN’S LIVING ROOM - DAY

1

Martin sits on his couch surrounded by Chinese take-out, starring at his phone. He watches a video of himself singing to his crush, Joni. MARTIN (V.O.) Joni, you don’t smell like rice-aroni. You definitely aren’t a phony. You might smell like... The clip ends with the sound of Martin puking on Joni. Martin stands up, out of fear and shame. He calls someone on his phone. MARTIN Sarah. You need to get over here. Fast. Did you see what Kelly posted? Shit. This is a total mess. I’m ordering Chinese. Do you want any egg rolls? The doorbell rings. Martin opens his front door and in bursts SARAH (20s), an edgy genius. She plows over Martin as she makes her way into the living room. SARAH What the hell was that, Martin? You went to Kelly’s party last night and didn’t invite me? MARTIN Yeah... I’m sorry about that. But... Sarah crosses and plunks herself down on the couch. She rustles through the food packaging. SARAH And then you barfed on Joni. That would never have happened if I had been invited to Kelly’s party! MARTIN Well yeah, but... SARAH And now you’ve eaten all of my egg rolls...

MARTIN Sarah! What am I going to do? The video is everywhere. SARAH Yeah, you really fucked yourself, didn’t you? But don’t stress. I’m here to fix it. Sarah finds food she’s excited about and eats. Martin doesn’t follow. MARTIN How? How can we possibly fix this? Sarah pulls a BOP-IT, fresh from the 1990s, from her bag and tosses it to Martin. SARAH Here. It’s a quantum acoustic manipulator. Martin catches the bop-it. A what?

MARTIN

SARAH A freaking time machine, baby! MARTIN A bop-it can take us back in time? SARAH Yeah! I’ve been working on it so I can get McDonalds breakfast whenever I want. This is a perfect chance to test it. Martin looks at the Bop-it with a bit of doubt and concern. MARTIN Well I guess... SARAH Don’t worry I’ve already done all of the guess work. Sarah grabs the bop-it and heads out side. Martin follows.

EXT. MARTIN’S HOUSE - DAY

2

Martin joins Sarah on the sidewalk. Sarah hits the bop-it and there is a popping noise. The two amigos disappear and the sidewalk is left empty. 3

IN FRONT OF MARTIN'S HOUSE

3

Martin and Sarah appear out of nowhere exactly where they had been standing. Martin looks around suspiciously. MARTIN Did... did it work? It looks the same. SARAH Well, I felt like I stopped existing for a second. That should be a good sign. There’s only one way to find out. 4

INT. HALLWAY - NIGHT Sarah and Martin stand outside of Kelly’s apartment. Music can be heard in the background. SARAH Fuck yeah! Sounds like it worked to me. I still can’t believe you didn’t invite me, Martin. MARTIN I know. I know. It’s just Tyler was going to be there... SARAH I take it back. Tyler is the fucking worst. Thank you so much! Sarah tackles Martin with a hug. MARTIN Of course, anytime. So now...? SARAH Well we don’t want earlier Martin to touch you and destroy all of space and time! So, I’ll go in and stop you from making a fool of yourself.

MARTIN No... Yeah, the end of reality would be bad... SARAH Great! Be back in a sec! Sarah disappears behind the door. 5

INT. PARTY APARTMENT

5

The apartment is cramped and there are several drinking people standing around. A drunk Martin is standing talking animatedly to JONI (20s). Sarah passes through a few people blocking the front door. She walks over to a random guy. SARAH Hey, Tyler! Fuck you! Sarah flips Tyler off and walks over to Martin. SARAH (CONT’D) Hey, buddy. Come with me if you want to live. Ha! MARTIN Sarah! What are you doing here? I thought you wouldn’t come because of Tyler... SARAH Don’t worry. I showed him whose boss. Now why don’t we just... um... leave...? MARTIN Ok. I’ll tell Joni I’ll be right back. Martin turns to say goodbye to Joni, but ends up dumping his drink on her. Oh, god!

JONI

MARTIN Oh no, oh no. I’m sorry? Sarah stands and backs away slowly.

SARAH You know what Martin, I’ll talk to you later. Sarah leaves Martin to deal with Joni. 6

INT. HALLWAY

6

Sarah comes out of the apartment. Martin stands holding the bop-it.

* *

MARTIN So? How’d it go?? SARAH Umm... There was a bit of a hiccup. Let me try again.

*

Sarah grabs the bop-it and fiddles with the nob. SARAH (CONT’D) I’ll just set it to overlap when we got here the first time. Sarah hits the bop-it and she and Martin disappear. 7

INT. PARTY APARTMENT - NIGHT

7

Sarah enters again, sees Tyler, and punches him in the junk. She joins Martin and Joni. SARAH Martin! Joni! Fancy running into you guys here! MARTIN Sarah! What are you doing here? I thought you wouldn’t come because... SARAH Martin, why don’t you get some water. You’ve had a lot to drink... MARTIN That’s a good plan. Hey Joni, I’ll be right back. Martin picks up his cup and leaves. Sarah smiles at Joni.


Pink Rev. (10/30/17)

6.

SARAH So... how have things been going? I’ve heard so much about you from Martin. You know he’s had the biggest crush on you since freshmen year... JONI Martin has a crush on me? SARAH Sure! I mean... Shit! Sarah gets up. 8

INT. HALLWAY

8

Sarah bursts out to Martin. SARAH Ok, this time it was my fault. I swear I know what to do this time. 9

INT. PARTY APARTMENT - NIGHT

9

Sarah enters, walks up to Tyler, and pulls him in for a kiss. SARAH Who are we to fight the inevitable? I’ll call you tomorrow. Sarah pulls Martin off to the side. SARAH (CONT’D) Ok. Martin. Listen up. MARTIN Sarah! What are you... Sarah grabs Martin by the collar, effectively choking him. SARAH Listen! You’re going to stand here for the rest of the night and do nothing! Don’t even move a muscle. Martin looks confused. MARTIN Sure, I won’t. I’ll just have one more beer and leave.

Martin picks up a bottle. Sarah sighs with relief. MARTIN (CONT’D) Hey, Joni, look what I can do! Martin opens the bottle with his teeth, breaking off one of his front teeth in the process. Martin runs out of the room to the bathroom. SARAH Fuck, Martin! Sarah trudges back out of the apartment. 10

INT. HALLWAY Martin stands holding his face. MARTIN What the hell happened in there? Part of my tooth is missing! SARAH More complications, but I swear if I can try one more time... The apartment door opens and Joni comes out. JONI Hey! Martin! Are you ok? MARTIN Umm... Yeah... Tooth... Yeah.... JONI Oh good! Maybe, after you get it fixed... next week, you’d wanna get coffee, or something. Do you like Chinese food? Martin blushes. MARTIN Yeah... I’d really like that! Joni starts to go back inside. Sarah takes her aside. SARAH If he enters through the bathroom in the next couple of minutes, it’s just a cool party trick. (MORE)

Pink Rev. (10/30/17) SARAH (CONT'D) And if he doesn’t remember any of this, don’t take it personally. It’s just the booze. Joni gives her a weird look and leaves. Sarah looks at Martin knowingly. MARTIN So... did we learn a lesson or something? SARAH We learned that you’re still a freak. MARTIN Yeah... What happened to my tooth, by the way? The two start to walk down the hallway. SARAH I suggest forgetting about it. Wanna bop out for breakfast at McDonalds? MARTIN You know they serve that all day now, right? SARAH Really? Then why the hell did I take the time to make a fucking time machine?! MARTIN Can we go back and stop you...? There’s a pop and Sarah and Martin disappear.
