DEAR L WORD FANS, It's almost impossible to overstate how important you are to this show. From the moment The L Word first premiered back in 2004, we, the writers, producers and actors, became engaged in a great, fun, important conversation with you, the viewers. You came at us enthusiastically with your reactions, your objections, your ideas, passions, preferences and opinions as to whether or not we were adequately and authentically representing the way that we live. We welcome it. We're well aware that before The L Word we were invisible. Our lesbian lives, the richness and diversity of our experience, was virtually unrepresented in the popular culture. We know how privileged we are to be the ones entrusted with the opportunity to put our stories forward before the world. And, we know as we plot these stories, that there are so many more ways to tell them, so many other stories still to tell. So, this year, just before the premier of season 3, we invited you, the fans, to become our creative collaborators. Using a new internet technology from a company called FanLib, we established a website where we could all join together, collectively and democratically, to write an original L Word episode. We called it a “Fanisode.” I'm told it was the first time anything like this had ever been tried and, as you’ll see in the “Press Roundup” section, it caused quite a sensation. First, we asked you to select a basic storyline. By voting for one of our six

suggestions, you elected to fill in the missing six months between the end of season two and the start of season three. Next, we posted a series of weekly writing assignments called our "scene missions," each laying out a few key plot points for a section of the story. Each week, fans submitted their 2-3 page scenes, and even more fans came to read and vote on them. Around seven weeks later, we had seven winning writers who wrote seven winning scenes, each elected by popular vote and daisy-chained together into our completed Fanisode script. Including writers and voters, almost 20,000 of you participated in its creation. We gave away loads of great prizes, like props from the show and shopping sprees from Saks Fifth Avenue, and our winning writers even got a little taste of fame. Not only were they profiled on the website, several of them made it into the pages of their hometown papers. And, to top it all off, our grand prize winner, Jan Naugle, won a writer’s coaching session with yours truly. The Fanisode script itself is a real winner too. It’s amazing how much undiscovered talent is out there. And, while it’s not quite practical to actually shoot and produce the Fanisode script right now, we’ve published it, along with a bunch of other great features, right here in this official eZine. But, just like Alice’s relationship diagram in the show, what’s most important with all of this are the connections

between us. The L Word is a reflection of the way we live. And, the more we can connect, the truer that reflection can be. That’s why for our next online fan event we’ll shine the spotlight even more brightly on you, the fans. This Fall, together with Showtime and the folks at FanLib, we’re inviting you tell us about your lives -- your friends and lovers, your work, your family, in short, your “L” world. If you’re one of the winners, you’ll be visited by a Showtime film crew and featured in the next DVD. It’s going to be another truly groundbreaking fan experience and I’d love you to be a part of it. Just visit for more details. The fans are the heart and soul of The L Word and I want to thank you all for embracing the show as your own and giving us the chance to continue discovering these wonderful characters and exploring the ways we live and love today. Thank you very much and I hope you continue to enjoy the show.

the heart of the matter

Season 3 picks up 6 months after the end of Season 2. How did our characters get to where they are? In this episode Bette and Tina bring Angelica home, Dana breaks the news to Alice, Shane and Carmen take the plunge and Jenny meets Moira at a Skokie gay bar.


t's the Fanisode's guiding principle: To democratically tap into the collective genius of the fans. So, a couple of weeks prior to the event's official start, we asked Ariel Schrag (our intrepid moderator and L Word staff writer) to suggest a bunch of ideas for what the fanisode should be about, then invited you to vote for your favorite. Your response was overwhelming. Thousands of fans resoundingly decided to collectively tell the tale that answers the burning question: "What the heck happened in the 6 month gap between seasons two and three? Here are the full results...







Something strange has come over LA. It's the middle of Season 3 and suddenly each character possesses a supernatural power! Bette is psychic, Tina can fly, Dana has superhuman strength, Alice can turn invisible, Jenny can read minds, Shane has x-ray vision, Carmen can change her form, Kit can communicate with the dead, and Helena is a witch.


2.4% LOBSTERS - THE NEXT DAY Episode 3 has just ended where do our characters pick up from here?


HOLIDAY SPECIAL Christmas and the first night of Hanukkah fall on the same day and each of our characters receive unusual visitors. Marcus the sperm donor wants to meet Angelica, Alice and the infamous Gabby Deveaux wreak havoc on Dana and Lara, Shane gets a phone call from her long lost brother, and Jenny contends with an angry someone who Moira left behind.

18.5% MOVIE PREMIERE Helena's movie studio has produced Jenny's novel into a major motion picture. The whole gang attends the lavish LA Premiere where relationship tensions come to a head. Especially for Jenny when Marina shows up.


24.7% VALENTINE'S DAY Everyone wants this one to count, but the day of love leads to unexpected liaisons. Bette and Tina go on a romantic Hawaiian getaway, Dana feels pangs of remorse for Alice, and both Shane and Moira try to create the perfect at-home evening for their girls – unfortunately under the same roof!

This is quite simply awesome -- a very creative concept!!!" - hapuna6irl "I think we should write what happened between the seasons since that way it won't conflict with the actual show. I can't believe the real writers will read this!!" - sarah1 "...I voted for the sci-fi concept. First, I want Dana to have superhuman strength because I do not want her to die off of the show from cancer." - beautifulstranger103

Luna & Renee Foxx (alias "Ratgurrlz") from New Jersey Married in Massachusetts in 2004, Renee and Luna are domestic partners residing in New Jersey with "100+ ratties, 5 ferrets and 4 cats." As freelance writers, it was writing that initially drew them together. They watch The L Word religiously and admire its matter-of-fact depictions of "strong women who represent glbt in a positive light."

Ervin Anderson (alias "ErvinV") 34 year old from southern New Jersey Not entirely new to writing, Ervin recently completed a novel, The Apocalyptic Guide to Dating, and hopes to have it published soon. The self-proclaimed "geek, but not a nerd" manages a small comic book shop and will soon be living in "sinful bliss" with his girlfriend Alyssa and "somewhat snooty" cat, Prometheus.

Tess Whitehurst (alias "Tess") 43 year old lesbian from the "gorgeous Outer Banks" of North Carolina From rocking the house to riveting readers, Tess is no stranger to pleasing a crowd. In her 20s she was the lead singer in a girl bar house band and went on to live the electrifying life of an indie singer/songwriter/ musician. Recently relocated from Minneapolis, today she enjoys the company of her lesbian friends who are "like family, very much like The L Word."

Leslie Samenuk (alias "leslie") from "funky and fabulous" Cleveland Heights, Ohio In the mid-80s, with a "passion for writing" and suitcase full of leg warmers, Leslie moved to LA where she dabbled at screenwriting while working in marketing/PR. Today, she says the Fanisode has "renewed her passion" for writing. Each Saturday morning, she and her husband Jim, along with their eloquent Lhasa Apso, Goldie, collaborate on her weekly scene.

Confrontations and Broken Hearts

Victoria Weber Villareale (alias "Toriaweber") 29 year old from central Florida

Kate Juneau (alias "tonys_love_2003") 24 year-old from Michigan

Jan Naugle (alias "Jaroo9") from Colorado Living "in the shadow of Pike's Peak" with her cat and two dogs, Jan is a naturopathic physician. She moved to the Mountain State two years ago so she could "cycle, backpack and mountain bike." Plus, she's finishing a novel and learning the sax. Whew! And I'm pooped just from typing that! She even squeezed her scene in flying back from the L Word book signing. Jan also won the grand prize mentoring session with L Word creator Ilene Chaiken.

As a TV news producer, Tori may be a media vet, but "this is the first time [she has] written anything in script form." She lives with her two dogs and a husband who "not only puts up with [her] L Word mania, but also watches." You mean he even sits through the sex scenes? Tori also enjoys photography, journaling and helping to remodel her house.

Kate (pictured left) truly is "Tony's love." She says that without her husband's steadfast encouragement she never would have submitted. Currently a stayat-home mom, Kate is studying to become a paramedic and eventually a firefighter. We say "hooray!" as long as she never extinguishes those creative sparks!

2/3/06: a fanisode is born he first round has begun." With those simple words, posted at on Friday, February 3rd, 2006, history was made. Over the next eight weeks, thousands of passionate L Word viewers, along with many of their friends and family members, flocked to the web to be a part of the first television episode written by, of and for you, the fans. After debating and rating potential storylines (see pg. 4), the groundbreaking collaboration was underway. Ariel Schrag, an accomplished L Word staff writer, served as our creative guide. Each week, based on the consensus storyline, she posted a new "Scene Mission" with key plot points. Hundreds of short scenes were then submitted by imaginative fans and rated by thousands more. At the end of each week when final voting drew to a close, the collective favorite, as determined by the ratings, was elected into the script. Major news outlets including USA Today, CNBC, The New York Times and Business Week heralded the event as the dawning of a new age of mass media in which the masses help make the media. Weekly scene-writing champs became fan-celebrities basking in their own fifteen minute share of the limelight -- a powerful potential stepping stone to professional screenwriting success. Along the way, participants were showered with prizes. Not only the winning scene submitters, but runners-up and voters as well. Premiere sponsor kicked-in thousands of dollars in shopping sprees at the glamorous retailer. Publisher Simon Fireside gave away books. Fox Searchlight, movie merchandise. Love and Pride Jewelry donated beautiful pieces from their "L Word" jewelry collection. Showtime dug into the L Word production vault to come up with pieces of wardrobe and autographed scripts as well as gift certificates to the Showtime store. LendingTree and The W Las Vegas helped out as pure sponsors. And, L Word creator/writer/producer Ilene Chaiken gave the priceless gift of time and wisdom in an online mentoring session with our grand prize winner Jan Naugle from Colorado. On March 31st, after the final round of submitting and voting, 20,000 members had contributed over 1,200 individual scenes, written 30,000-plus comments and cast more than 124,000 votes. Most importantly, the final script that emerged is far more than the hit-or-miss assemblage of amateur ramblings that some may have expected. On the contrary, with a little polishing courtesy of Ms. Schrag, the first-ever fanisode is a showcase of genuine talent and creativity, and a true testament to the power of the people. Discover it for yourself on the pages that follow and stay tuned for more fantacular Fanisode fun in the months to come!

Mia gets up from the bed and walks out of the room.

TINA (looks at Bette smiling) Mommies.

SAM Oh my god she’s so beautiful.

MIA Oh, I’m sorta in a similar situation, but not exactly. Bette and Tina look confused. Another lesbian couple, SAM and CARI, couple walkss into the room. SAM & CARI

CARI I know, just how we imagined her. BETTE I hope I’m not intruding, but is this your baby?

Hi. MIA Sam, Cari, this is , - I’m sorry I didn’t even get your names , I’m Mia. BETTE Bette. TINA Tina.

CARI Sam and I decided to help Mia through her pregnancy. SAM And she agreed to give us custody rights of Hanna once she was born. TINA Wow. How did you find each other?

Right baby girl? CARI After much thought we decided there are many young, scared girls who feel threatened to either abort their child or feel disconnected just giving them up for adoption. Eventually we went through an agency who understood and put us in contact with Mia and her family. SAM Do you want to hold her again? I don’t really want to give her up but we agreed. (to Bette and Tina) Mia isn’t ready to have a baby right now. We helped her financially and emotionally through her entire pregnancy and when Hanna is ready to go homeCARI She will be going home with us.

Sam and Cari walk over to Mia. SAM (to Bette and Tina) I’m Sam and this is my partner, Cari.

SAM How did we find each other or Mia? Cari hands Hanna to Sam. She rocks her by the window.

CARI Hi. Mia hands the baby to Cari. MIA Can you excuse me for a minute?

CARI We know what you mean. First I was going to carry, but we couldn’t find a proper donor and we don’t trust sperm banks. SAM Kind of a hit or miss. (to Hanna)


TINA That’s incredible. CARI We had a lawyer draw up paperwork giving us full custody of Hanna. SAM We’re all in full agreement. In the future when Hanna is old enough to understand we will explain it to her, but for now she’s all ours. Mia returns and lies down.

Exhausted. SAM We’ll let you rest a bit. CARI (to Sam) Let’s go to the cafeteria. SAM We’ll stop back up before we leave to check on you and say goodbye.

TINA I think it’s great you agreed to help them have a baby. MIA They helped me. I didn’t want to have a baby but I felt guilty. I couldn’t afford the medical bills either and they helped me through it all. They will give Hanna a great life. I know it. So when are you going home?


TINA Home? Oh, today.

Sam and Cari hug Mia and start to walk out of the room.



SAM (to Bette and Tina) It was nice meeting you. BETTE I actually wanted to get a cup of coffee. Do you mind if I follow you down? SAM Not at all.

Alice is on Dana’s computer and scrolling through her cell phone. ALICE Come on, there’s gotta be something. The computer screen shows an email inbox. Alice opens the mail.

ALICE (CONT'D) I know you're talking to her. I know you're not just going out to have dinner and reminisce. If she can hook up with Gabby she has to be vile.

Dana walks over to the couch. She lays down in a fetal position and closes her eyes.

Alice slams the door. DANA I don't remember that.

Dana heads to the bedroom and Alice follows. INT. DANA'S BEDROOM – CONTINUOUS ALICE I have a surprise for you. DANA Surprise?


Bette and Tina walk out of the hospital front doors with Angelica.

DANA How did you get in?



ALICE Yep, wait here. Alice pushes Dana onto the bed and walks out. Dana notices some of Alice's stuff in her room. DANA Alice what is all this stuff? ALICE (O. S.) What stuff? DANA Your stuff. Alice enters wearing only a guitar strapped over her shoulder and begins to serenade Dana.

Carmen, alone at a table, glances back over her shoulder and begins to laugh. She shakes her head. CARMEN (disgusted) Unbelievable. Shane enters, spots Carmen, and waves hello. Shane and Carmen kiss, then Shane sits. Carmen laughs. SHANE What is it? What's so funny? CARMEN You are not going to believe this. Mark's here. With a girl. Shane shrugs. SHANE Great. Maybe he'll stop with his silly crush on me. What is it with straight men thinking they can convert lesbians? You never see some really hot girl looking at Liberace and saying, I just gotta make him straight. Carmen glances back at the table where Mark is sitting with a female. Only the back of their heads are visible. The girl has very short, stylish black hair.

JENNY (CONT'D) least ten minutes in there with the doctor where I actually didn't want to hurt myself. So, you know, that's an improvement. It's hard, though, really hard.

CARMEN You think he's over you? Yeah, right! Go check it out. Go over and say hello to Mark and his new lady. See for yourself just how over you he really is. Shane stands.

REBECCA We've been sharing this room for days now, and I think it's time we dished the dirt on ourselves.

SHANE Fine. Shane walks over to Mark's table. Mark sees her and smiles. Shane's mouth falls open. Mark's female friend, SHANNON, looks almost identical to Shane, hair, clothes, etc. MARK Hey, Shane, what's up? SHANE You've got to be kidding me. INT.

JENNY Okay. You first. REBECCA Well, I'm here because I have bulimia. My relationship with food is... let's say... unhealthy. JENNY Where do I start? I'm a cutter, among other things.

I don't know how to fix myself. REBECCA That's why we're here, honey. Jenny starts to cry and Rebecca gives her a hug. REBECCA I've been binging and purging for as long as I can remember. I don't recall, not once in my (MORE)


REBECCA (CONT'D) life, enjoying a meal and not feeling guilty about it. When I was really young, my mother used to enter me in those child beauty pageants. But no matter how much she would doll me up, with the fake tans and the skimpy outfits, I was never pretty enough. One day, after I'd lost a pageant, Mom stared at me with a fury, with maybe a little hate in her eyes, and told me that I might be able to win if I wasn't so fat. I was five. JENNY That's horrible. Rebecca forces a weak smile through her sadness. REBECCA Want to hear something really awful? I haven't kissed anyone on the mouth in years. I... I use my mouth as a trash dump, and I don't want to put my filthy lips on anyone, because I'm disgusting. JENNY No one should go without kisses for that long. Jenny leans in and gives Rebecca a soft peck on the mouth. It's not a romantic kiss, but still a sweet, loving one. Rebecca runs a few fingers lightly over her own mouth, amazed.

JENNY Yeah, that's pretty much it. Actually, that's kind of a lie. Wanna know a secret? Something no one else knows?

VINCE VAN PATTEN (serious) She's done it ladies and gentleman, Alice Pieszecki has gone all in!

Rebecca excitedly turns and moves closer to Jenny.

Alice wearing sunglasses pushes her chips to the middle of the table. The camera slowly moves to her opponent who pushes back the hood on her unibomber style hooded sweatshirt. It is Lara. Lara pushes in all of her chips.

REBECCA Yes please! Secrets please! Now please! JENNY I've been fooling everyone, and myself, for a long time. Marina wasn't the first girl I was ever with. When I was ten, I had a female baby-sitter named Sky, a total hippie. She always stunk like pot and incense, but in a good way. She was in her early twenties, and one night she crawled into bed with me and told me that I was beautiful. Then she put her fingers inside me. REBECCA You are totally scandalous, Jenny. JENNY I had blocked the whole thing out for so long, but then recently the memories came back, along with some other, more horrible memories. (MORE)

They exchange glances and Dana exits. Alice stands. ALICE Jackie! Jackie Thomas?! Get out! What are you doing here? Jackie walks to Alice's table and greets her with a hug. JACKIE Al! Wow! How's that diva of a Mother of yours? AL (laughs) My diva of a Mother? Your mother is the mother of all divas! Kit comes over to clean the table. KIT Hey Alice, how you doing?

ALICE Kit this is my childhood friend Jackie, her mother played Ruth Cox on Empire Falls with my Mom! KIT (Enthused) Oh my god, not that bitch Ruth Cox! I wanted to strangle that woman! JACKIE Her refutation precedes me. Kit pauses at Jackie's malapropism. KIT Well, I owe a good seven years of Sunday nights to your Mothers! The least I can do is buy you two a drink! What do you say Bloody Mary's for both? Ruth Cox would've had one before five. Kit leaves the table.

ALICE So Jack! What are you up to? You crack me up! You always had some grand scheme going on when we were kids. Did you ever make your fortune? JACKIE Made it and lost it three times over now. A girl can still dream. I have just become a certified Private Investigator. So I have plenty buns in the oven. ALICE I think you mean pokers in the fire. Wow, you mean you work for the police department, or an agency? JACKIE Well I could, I mean... they hire people like me all of the time.

Everyone laughs uproariously. TINA I was about 10. My family was visiting my Uncle's farm and Mom asked if I'd like to ride along with her to the store. There was this long flat stretch of road. My mom asked me if I knew what it felt like to go 100 miles an hour.

ALICE AND JACKIE Thanks Kit. Alice sips on her drink, thinking ALICE Consider yourself hired. JACKIE What? You want to put me on a container?

TINA (V.O.) I was terrified. Not as much about the speed of the car as seeing my mother be irresponsible. Until then, she'd always been Mom you know? It felt odd, exciting. She must've sensed my fear, it was so like her to play on that kind of thing...


MOTHER You know, Tina, this is really dangerous. An animal could jump out in the road and I'd never be able to stop in time. Ominous Music plays. Tina scoots closer to the middle and looks at the speedometer. 85 mph Her mother reaches for her hand. MOTHER If we got a flat right now that would be the end of us. TINA (V.O.) I squeezed her hand, it seemed like it was taking forever to hit 100. The wind was howling in the windows and it felt like the car was levitating just above the road. MOTHER 97... 98... 99... come on Tina! BOTH One hundred! We move in on Tina's mother's face. TINA (V.O.) She was wearing some old denim shirt, I'm not even sure if she had make-up on that day. Still, it was the most beautiful I'd ever seen my mother. Her blue eyes flashing and the sun beating on her face. I know now that the day was like a passage. (MORE)

TINA (V.O. CONT’D) She was sharing something with me. Maybe a glimpse of who she was before she was wife and mother. (struggles) Maybe who she still is but rarely allows me to see. FLASHBACK ENDS INT. BETTE AND TINA'S HOUSE – CONTINUOUS

ALICE (drunken loud whispering) Iv you ssusspected ssomeone of usssurping your empire would you have them ffollowed? HELENA Well, yes Alice. I suppose I would.

Jackie has left to pursue her new assignment. Alice sits alone at the bar, visibly buzzed. Helena enters and approaches Alice.


CARMEN So what do you think?

Alice raises her hands in the air and then smacks the bar.

Carmen makes a sweeping motion with her hand.


SHANE It's great. But you didn't have to.


CARMEN Of course I did. I want our home to be beautiful.

Thank you.


Carmen walks over and kisses Shane.


Tina looks at Bette who is wiping away a tear. BETTE (emotional) You never told me that story before.


Bette sits on the bed as Tina dials the phone. TINA Hello, Mom?

Shane looks at her but says nothing. CARMEN (playfully) What? What did I say?


ALICE (loudly) Helena! C'mere. Helena glances behind her to see if there's another Helena, she sits cautiously next to Alice. Alice leans close to her.

Nothing. INT. SHANE'S LIVING ROOM – AFTERNOON Shane enters, shuts the door and turns, looking around the living room. It is immaculate, filled with flowers and sunlight.

Carmen moves closer, pressing her hands against Shane's shoulders. CARMEN Was it when I said "our home"?

CARMEN Did you hear that?

DR. PERETZ Yes. We spoke this morning. Are you still alright with going to her house?

SHANE I don't hear anything.

JENNY I have to be.


SHANE Yeah. Maybe.


Carmen begins moving her hands across Shane's breasts. She moves them down, and up under Shane's shirt as she begins kissing her neck. Shane shuts her eyes, moans, then grabs Carmen, moving her backwards to the couch. On the couch, Shane quickly removes Carmen's top and bra. Carmen pulls Shane's shirt off, and pulls her down. Skin against skin as their kisses become harder and deeper. Shane moves her mouth down to Carmen's breasts, kissing her breasts and nipples as she unzips Carmen's jeans. She flips Carmen over, slides her jeans down and runs her tongue along the tattoo on her lower back. CARMEN Oh yeah. Yeah. Shane moves Carmen's g-string aside and slides her hand between her legs. Shane begins to move rhythmically, pressing herself into Carmen. CARMEN (moaning)

Jenny looks at Dr. Peretz with luminous eyes.

CARMEN Exactly. It's perfect. INT. THERAPIST'S OFFICE – DAY Jenny and Dr. Peretz sit in chairs by the window. Sunlight illuminates the office. Jenny's face is remarkably peaceful. JENNY Really. I do feel better. So thank you. I know I wasn't the most receptive patient when we started. DR. PERETZ I'm really pleased with your progress, Jenny. You've done a lot of hard work in here. And I told you last week that if you had no setbacks I would discharge you and you could move to outpatient sessions.

JENNY (CONT'D) (firmly) I will be. I'll be fine. DR. PERETZ And you'll continue your daily journaling? JENNY Of course. It's so cathartic for me. And such a part of my being. I can't imagine not writing- it's like breathing. DR. PERETZ Ok then. Let's get you scheduled for some times next week. INT. JENNY AND REBECCA'S ROOM – LATER



Jenny and Rebecca are sitting on Rebecca's bed.

Shane and Carmen are still on the couch, holding each other.

DR. PERETZ I'm discharging you later today.

REBECCA I'm going to miss you. Us. Our secrets.


JENNY Wow. (pause) Does my mom know?



JENNY This isn't goodbye, you know. We just won't be roommates (MORE)

JAN Listen, Jenny. I hope you don't mind but Rebecca has told me a lot about you and your struggles. She said you're an undiscovered literary star. Those were your words, weren't they, darling? Rebecca nods sheepishly. JAN So, needless to say, nothing would please me more than discovering a new star. Would you consider letting me read your work? JENNY God. Yes, of course. Thank you. Jenny turns to Rebecca. JENNY Thank you. REBECCA You're not mad at me?

JENNY (CONT’D) anymore, which, considering that we're in a psychiatric hospital is probably not a bad thing.

JAN Good lord. What could he possibly want now?

Jenny and Rebecca turn to see Rebecca's mom, JAN MARTIN, an impeccably dressed woman. REBECCA Hi Mom. Mom, this is Jenny. Jenny stands and extends her hand. JENNY meet you,


JAN Nice to meet you too, Jenny, and its Ms. Martin. But you can call me Jan. REBECCA Mom went back to her maiden (MORE)

Jan's cell phone vibrates. She glances at it but ignores it.

JENNY I could never be mad at you. I have a strange feeling that you and I are one of those meant to be moments in life, actually. Jenny hugs Rebecca tightly.

WOMAN'S VOICE (O.S.) Hello, hello.

Nice to Williams.

REBECCA (CONT’D) name after the divorce.


INT. SHANE'S HOUSE – EVENING Shane is on the couch, flipping through channels but completely unfocused.

Who? JAN David Jacobson. I'm editing his new novel and he's driving me absolutely crazy. JENNY (incredulous) Oh my God. You're Jan Martin of Simon & Schuster. I read an interview with you last year. REBECCA Oops. Did I forget to mention that?

SHANE Carme? Can you come here? Carmen enters and plops down next to her. CARMEN Yes? Shane turns off the TV. CARMEN God, you look so serious. SHANE You know this is Jenny's house, and she's coming back.

a fanisode 21

CARMEN I know, baby. SHANE Hopefully soon.

Carmen takes Shane's hands.

BILL It's a simple question. Do you or do you not have any interviews lined up?

CARMEN Will you do that for me? SHANE

CARMEN I want her to get well and come home as much as you do. SHANE It's just the way you were talking earlier...




CARMEN Just think about it.

BILL I'm just concerned for Angelica. If you insist upon having another woman raise my grandchild, at least be sure she's able to provide for her.

Shane looks at her. SHANE

CARMEN Baby, I just want you to think about us living together. There's plenty of room, and Jenny and I are fine. And I miss you when I'm not with you. Don't you miss me? SHANE I do. But living together is... CARMEN A commitment? I know. And that's a big scary word for you. But here's how I see it. There are all these moments that make up life. And we all want we all hope - that the good moments will outweigh the bad ones. And with you they do. At least for me. SHANE I know. I miss you when you're not here. CARMEN I'm practically living with you now if you think about it.

I will.

ROUND 5 INT. BETTE AND TINA'S LIVING ROOM – EVENING Bette, Tina, and Tina's parents, JOAN and BILL, sit tensely around the living room.

BETTE I assure you that Angelica will be well taken care of, financially and emotionally. Currently, I have a healthy cushion from my severance and, in time, I will take a position which will provide us the economic resources to maintain our standard of living and provide for our child. Joan touches Bill, to stop him.

BILL Do you have any offers at all? BETTE Well, I'm exploring several options, and I'm enjoying the extra time the hiatus affords me with Angelica. BILL But no interviews. BETTE Well, at the moment, I-

TINA How about a tour? Bill and Joan stand up and follow Tina. INT. KITCHEN – CONTINUOUS Bette, fuming, enters the kitchen, pours a drink, and stares out the window to calm her temper. She hears Angelica crying in the other room and leaves to tend to her.

Bill is controlled, steely.

Don't come over! Somebody's following me and she's outside now. I'm gonna call the police. INT. ALICE'S CAR – SAME NIGHT

INT. DANA'S HOUSE – SAME NIGHT DANA No, I don't want you to get hurt. I've seen this person everywhere today. At first I thought she was just- Sh*t! Dana stops suddenly, pulling the blinds further apart. DANA (whispering) She just ran into the bushes! She's like 15 feet away! This is freaking me out! She could be a crazed killer targeting lesbian tennis players. I'm calling the police. INT. ALICE'S CAR – SAME NIGHT

DANA What- Alice- wait! Don't hang up! Stay on the line in case something happens! INT. ALICE'S CAR – SAME NIGHT ALICE I can't... uh... what if she's got surveillance equipment in your phone? She'll know I'm there! INT. DANA'S HOUSE – SAME NIGHT DANA What?! INT. ALICE'S CAR – SAME NIGHT ALICE See you in a minute!

Alice is driving furiously. Alice hangs up, quickly dials.

Alice is driving while talking on the phone to Dana. ALICE Baby, wait. Don't do that. I'll be there in, like, five minutes.

ALICE Jackie, abort! Abort! Go now! Alice's car pulls up to Dana's. Lights flash across bushes to show a woman jump out and run down the street. Alice exits her car.

ALICE You better run! EXT. DANA'S DOORSTEP – MOMENTS LATER Dana opens her front door. DANA

ALICE (CONT’D) Alice does a subdued can-can dance. Dana nods, realizing who she's talking about, but unsure of Al's point.

TINA We wanted Angelica to look like both of us. Bill reddens and stands up.

ALICE She's a PI now. I just thought, maybe if I knew what you were doing, I could back off and-

BILL Joan, let's go.


JOAN Dana's eyes widen.

ALICE Hey! I scared her off. A homicidal homophobe wouldn't have given up that easily.

DANA You had her follow me? Alice drops her face in her hands.

INT. DANA'S HOUSE – CONTINUOUS Dana stares with disbelief as Alice enters her house. Dana goes over to the phone and starts dialing.

ALICE I did. I'm so sorry. I don't know what's wrong with me! She cries. Dana softens, holds her. DANA

DANA You're acting really strange. I'm calling the police.

BILL I'm doing my best, but you can't expect me to stand here silently while our daughter lives in sin, raises a biracial baby, with no father and no income! Bill storms out and Joan follows. Bette and Tina can hear the door slam behind them. BETTE I smell smoke!




JOAN You haven't secured the pool?

Alice grabs for the phone. Dana pulls it back, shocked.

Bette and Tina run to the kitchen and open the oven to a burning roast. The fire alarm starts screaming. Bette shuts her eyes and breathes. Tina is defeated. Angelica cries.

TINA Excuse me?


JOAN Having a child with an unfenced pool is inviting disaster. She could drown within minutes and you'd never know. Try living with that on your conscience.

In candlelight, Dana sits on the sofa, her arm around Alice.

TINA Mom, Angelica isn't even crawling! You're being a little premature.

DANA I don't understand why, but I do understand that you're upset, and I don't like to see you hurting.

DANA Al! Alice blushes, ashamed. ALICE No one's trying to kill you. DANA How do you know? Alice paces, embarrassed. ALICE God, I'm such an idiot! I was trying not to smother you, be too needy, but it drove me crazy not knowing where you were or who you were with. Then I ran into Jackie Thomas- her mother was in Empire Falls; we used to do that little routine together? (MORE)

Bette enters with Angelica talking in a sing-song voice. BETTE Here's our girl! Tina's parents blanch. BILL Your child is black?

ALICE Thanks for understanding. I don't know why I'm so insecure. I've never been like this before.

ALICE I'm trying to trust you. It's weird, it's like I'm fine and then all of a sudden, something else takes over my brain and I'm this crazy insane person and I can't stop it. God, I'm becoming unstable. Dana smiles.

SHANE Come on.

INT. SHANE AND CARMEN'S HOUSE – NIGHT The house is crowded with people. Carmen is at the DJ table with Kit, chatting over a laptop. Shane walks up. SHANE Hey, Hey! I thought we said no DJ'ing. Tonight is our night. CARMEN (to Shane) Hello sexy! I was just showing Kit the new software I bought. (to Kit) See? You just load everything here and it puts it in the playlist, that's it.

Tina has Angelica in a sling. TINA We tried one other brand of sling but it kept slipping, this one is better, and it's great because I can feed her and still be covered up.

KIT Girl, don't be saying that too loud. You won't have a job!

Tina opens the sling to show a half nursing, half sleeping Angelica.

CARMEN Well, it is missing my special touch, of course.

PREGNANT WOMAN How precious! (looks at partner) Are you ready for this?

DANA No, Alice cut it out. Alice walks away. Shane follows, but her phone rings. She answers it.

SHANE I'm going to go see what that mess is about.

Jenny walks through the house towards the front door. Her mom is in the kitchen, alone now. SANDY Where are you going?

SANDY Your father wants you to go to temple with him. It's Paul Daniel's birthday and they are having a get together for him JENNY I don't want to. SANDY Jenny, please, you're not a child. JENNY I know, that's why I'm going out. Jenny leaves.

SAM Yeah? How did that go? TINA Well, we invited them over and things were... OK at first, I guess.

BETTE By okay she means that they attacked our lifestyle and our biracial child. And in not so many words let me know that I was incapable of taking care of Angelica without a job. CARI Well, to be honest, you really can't provide for her without a job. BETTE What? You knew our situation and you said you understood. You encouraged our meeting Tina's parents. In fact, it was your idea to do it in the first place. Maybe this wouldn't have happened if we didn't listen to your advice.

SAM Let's not argue and point fingers here. It didn't go well and we apologize for that. TINA You know how much we love Angelica, and we're okay with money for the time being. Besides, Bette has a couple job offers. CARI All I'm saying is that he might have been more receptive had you taken one of the offers instead of waiting around for a better one. You have a child now, you need to do what you have to do.

DANA I can't afford to skip practice just because I had a few drinks last night. ALICE You mean a keg and a half?

BETTE Of all the people, Tina, I never thought you would say that. You know that I love that little girl with all my soul. I can't just accept any job. I need to feel passionately about what I do.

a fanisode

a word from the fanisode script moderator DEAR FANISODE PARTICIPANTS, ’ve had a wonderful time collaborating with you on the L Word’s first ever Fanisode. When all the different types of participants started signing on, introducing themselves on the message boards, I knew it would make for eclectic writing. We had a grandmother from Illinois, a drag king from Seattle, a Dominican lesbian from New York, a Second Degree Wiccan High Priestess, a straight married couple from Michigan, and a lesbian psychologist, to name just a few. This diversity also accounts for the great span of potential new characters that were suggested, such as a mormon lesbian, a military woman, a big black jewish dyke, a gay male friend, a socially inept brilliant cardiac surgeon, and a firefighter. I would love to see any of these characters in action. It was great to see everyone so passionate about the L Word and to hear what each person believes the show should or should not represent. Many people brought important political issues and personal stories to their Fanisode submissions. When Ervin’s winning scene described Jenny being molested by a female babysitter - and her attraction to that babysitter - it caused a very intense conflict, which


was fascinating to follow on the boards. I love that someone’s writing incited such an engaging discussion; it’s what powerful writing should do. People were also very passionate about voting rules, unfair ratings, the popularity factor and all those things that go along with any heated contest. This fervor definitely gave the whole process a more adrenalin racing rush. But debates and message board drama aside, what’s most important about this event is the craft of writing. What I love the most, and what you all brought to it, is the multiformity of expression. Firstly, there was the actual Fanisode writing, which so many people tackled with such professionalism and creativity. Again and again I read scripts where our characters were captured with spot-on accuracy and the themes of the show were expressed both in broad strokes and detailed nuances. As a writer for the show, it was inspiring to see which particular subtexts and character traits people chose to focus on. People were also great at capturing not only our standard L Word characters, but also the characters created in the winning scenes. It was very funny to see new character Jackie Thomas’s malapropisms and bumbling personali-

ty carried throughout so many scripts. In addition to the official Fanisode there were also all the great fantasy scenes and parodies. In Esbians, I laughed out loud when CJWard67 had Leira racing around on 25 computers trying to give people zeros. The scenes of Stephen King, Saddam Hussein and Leisha Hailey all obsessively writing their submissions were likewise hilarious. It feels great to be part of building such a close community. Although there was drama, overall everyone on the boards really supported each other and respected each other as writers. I think of this website as sort of like a writer’s workshop, where people can get the critical feedback and encouragement not just of seven people sitting around a table, but of thousands of L Word fans across the world. I hope you’ve all enjoyed this as much as I have, and I can’t wait to do it again. Sincerely,

Meanwhile, things are not so pleasant between Alice and Dana. Despite Dana's insistence that she loves her, Alice's desperate clinginess only grows further out of control. We close with Tina and Bette blissfully bringing Angelica home and Dana sleeping on the couch. Format: Screenplay

CREATE SCENE #2: Mark just can't seem to shake his obsession with Shane, and it is really starting to get on her nerves, not to mention Carmen's. At an inpatient clinic in her hometown of Skokie, Illinois, Jenny undergoes intensive therapy. She also confides in her roommate, Rebecca, who has an eating disorder. Our scene ends with Shane kicking Mark out for good and Jenny telling her roommate something she would never tell her therapist. Format: Screenplay

CREATE SCENE #4: With both Mark and Jenny gone, Shane and Carmen capitalize on the infinite pleasures of a whole house to yourself. If Carmen moved in, the steamy sleepover party for two would never have to end. But, are they really ready? Jenny's therapist decides that she's well enough to be transferred to outpatient. Before she leaves, her roommate Rebecca introduces her to her once beauty-pageant-fixated mother, Jan Martin, who, Jenny realizes, is the esteemed editor for Simon and Schuster. Format: Screenplay

Max. Characters: 6,000

CREATE SCENE #5: Tina's family comes to visit and "disaster" is a nice way to describe it. Dana is terrified when she realizes that someone has been following her. Thinking it's either a crazed fan or a homicidal homophobe, she tells Alice she wants to go to the police. Racked with guilt, Alice confesses everything about how she asked her old-friend-turned-private-investigator, Jackie Thomas, to follow her. Alice and Dana have a real heart to heart, and it seems like everything just might be OK. Format: Screenplay

CREATE SCENE #6: Shane decides to have Carmen move in and the two of them throw a wild party to celebrate. The night starts out a blast with seemingly all of gay LA there, but turns to trouble when the cops show up. In Jenny's orthodox home the dynamic between her mother, Sandy, and stepfather, Warren, makes her want to run back to the clinic. Instead, she spends nights at the only Skokie gay bar, working diligently on her novel, and getting to know an attractive butch named Moira. Format: Screenplay

CREATE SCENE #7: Bette and Tina confront Sam and Cari, their new lesbian couple friends, about their back firing advice regarding Tina's family. Sam and Cari defend themselves, putting the blame back on Bette and Tina. A vicious fight and falling out ensues. Bette and Tina face the troubles they still clearly have. Alice thinks everything is heaven with Dana. It is then that Jackie, Alice's P.I. friend who was following Dana, informs her she saw Dana and Lara on what appeared to be an intimate date.

scene congeniality DISCOVER THE BEST OF THE FANISODE'S "SCENES FROM THE ATTIC." emocracy can be a cruel mistress. Out of the thousands of scenes submitted over the course of the event, only a tiny handful were elected by your votes as winners or finalists. Are the rest utterly worthless? Impossible for anyone but their author to love? Well, frequently, yes. But, sometimes the best scenes are parodies. Sometimes they're "off-mission." And, sometimes they're just "too good" for this "fascist contest." That's why we created the "Scenes from the Attic" feature. With the help of our blueribbon nominating committee of past winners, finalists and die-hard Fanisode enthusiasts, we're dusting off these underappreciated gems and presenting four of the best for your reading pleasure.


[Round #4]




SHANE (smiles slowly) Ahh. Tied up and helpless. Just the way I like them.

WRITTEN BY: alias "Argus" You see Shane, scantily clad, stalking though dense vegetation.

NOMINATED BY: Allstarlover who says, in her best British accent, "Bloody hilarious!"

SHANE (almost purring) Where are you, you alley cat? Where's my favorite pussy? When I find you, you're going to have to be punished.

PROMO: Awakening - Carmen and Shane get all primal in the jungle while Jenny makes a shocking decision about her shot at the big time.

Shane rounds a corner and comes upon Carmen who is half naked and has managed to lash herself to the trunk of a tree.

ATTIC SCENE COMMENTS: "LOL!! This is the best scene I've ever read here. I think I *heart* you." - allstarlover

CARMEN (a steely look in her eye) You can touch me, but you'll never have me. Shane moves in, she moves her hands all over Carmen's body but doesn't move to kiss her until Carmen is on the brink of yelling out for more. As they kiss passionately Shane moves her hand under Carmen's skirt and Carmen's hips start to move back and forth. Just then there's a rustling in the bushes and JORGE GARCIA, blunders into the clearing.

LYNDA (grins) Isn't that what your hard-nosed writing coach would call 'journaling'? JENNY (smiles) Yes, it probably is, but you know what? I don't care. If you have to go nuts to be a writer, then I don't want to be a writer. I just want to be honest at last.

JORGE (awkward and surprised) Um... Ah... Hi, Shane, I was just needing, you know, my um hair done. Shane and Carmen leap apart, Shane tries to shield Carmen's nakedness with her body and stray fronds from nearby plants. SHANE (wide eyed) Jorge! What are you doing here? I thought everything was wrapped for the day. JORGE (starting to grin) Um, no. The director decided to do one more take on that final scene with me. We didn't think the jungle would have been taken over by Tarzana and Jane, because, you know, that's a whole different show.

CARMEN (CONT’D) Since Mark's gone and Jenny's still at the clinic, why don't we stick to using the house? SHANE Good idea, Jane. INT. THE PSYCHIATRIST'S OFFICE – DAY The psychiatrist, LYNDA THOMAS, and Jenny are sitting facing each other. Jenny looks better than she has in a while. LYNDA Jenny, how are you feeling today? JENNY Hopeful, you know? For the first time in so long I feel like I want to write. LYNDA Is that because you want to escape your own head?

Jorge exits. CARMEN (smiling) Oh my God! That has to be one of the most embarrassing moments ever! (MORE)

JENNY No. It's because I feel like I finally know what the truth is and I want to keep myself honest by writing only the truth.

LYNDA You've come a long way Jenny. The next step is to see whether or not you can handle the real world again. What I'd like to do is move you to an outpatient program. So you'll live at home, but come and see me every day. How does that sound to you? JENNY Wow. Um. I don't know. I do feel stronger, but my mom can be kind of difficult and I feel like Rebecca needs me. LYNDA Well let's say we give it a try for a week and then I'll re-evaluate. INT. SHANE'S HOUSE – DAY Shane and Carmen are up against the fridge, both naked. Their hands are all over each other and they are mutually eating a chocolate bar which is dripping chocolate down their breasts. Shane leans to lick it off Carmen, she turns so that her back is to Shane. Shane starts rubbing her from behind. The scene moves to the lounge. Carmen is standing and straddling Shane who is lying on her back on the coffee table. Carmen grins wickedly and in her hand is swinging a large dildo. The scene moves to the porch outside which faces Mark's old cottage. Carmen is lying on top of Shane, you can she that she is wearing a strap on. She's moving slowly up and down and Shane is moaning with pleasure.

Suddenly Bette's head pops up above the fence between their properties. BETTE (looking around) Shane! Shane!

CARMEN (CONT’D) Carmen turns to face the wall, she looks sad while Shane looks torn and annoyed with herself. INT. JENNY'S ROOM AT THE CLINIC – DAY

Shane and Carmen leap up. SHANE What the f*ck! Carmen scurries inside. BETTE Oh Shane, there you are. Bette sees Shane is naked and realizes her mistake. BETTE Oh sh*t Shane, I'm sorry! I just saw your car and wondered if you had any milk in the house. INT. SHANE'S BEDROOM – EVENING Shane and Carmen are lying in each other's arms. SHANE Man, what is it? I mean do I have bad sex karma or what? Getting caught like that twice in one day. CARMEN Well, I guess we wouldn't feel the need to do it all the time if we just lived together. SHANE (distractedly) Yeah. You're right... (more alert) But um, hey, I mean, in theory you're right, but Jenny's coming back soon and you know... We don't want to go too fast. CARMEN (annoyed) What do you mean 'too fast'? Don't start this again, Shane. (MORE)

Jenny is packing. REBECCA comes in with her mother, JAN MARTIN in tow. REBECCA Hey Jen. I wanted you to meet my mom before you go. Mom, this is Jenny. JAN Hi Jenny. Nice to meet you. Rebecca say's you've been a great friend to her in here. She needs all the help she can get to stop that awful habit of hers.

JAN Yes, it's true. And I'm always looking for talent. And my plump little Becky here tells me that you might have what it takes. JENNY Hang on. Plump? Like fat? My God, who are you? You may think you're some big shot but it's your sh*t that put your daughter in here in the first place. You're just another person who ensures that beautiful women like Rebecca are kept oppressed and exploited. I don't want anything to do with you.

[Round #5]

JENNY (awkward) Um, yes, nice to meet you too. I'm sorry, I've got to keep packing, my mom will be here soon.


JAN Those are some great books you've got there. Becky says you're a writer?


JENNY Yes, I am. Or I was. I wanted to be a writer but all I ever got were rejection slips. I don't think I'm up to being rejected any more. JAN Well, maybe I wouldn't reject you. Do you have some material? JENNY What do you mean? REBECCA I should have told you before. I didn't know if you'd like me for me if you knew, but my mom's head of Simon and Schuster.

DigOphelia, ErvinV, Frumple and Ckrenshaw who says, " gives Tina's character a little background... captures that classic Dana sense of humor... Shows how multi-facetted Alice/Dana are [and] Alice's first big step into the dark side of stalker." PROMO: The reason for the Insanity... When Alice goes too far, Dana learns the real root of her girlfriend's insecurities. A cataclysmic dinner, with everything gaily awry, causes Tina's father to reveal why he can't tolerate – much less accept. But why is Tina is the one to hurt Bette?

JENNY No way!

INT. BETTE AND TINA'S – EVENING BETTE What is the point of inviting them into Angelica's life if we hide who we are? TINA We don't need 'So You Want To Be A Lesbian' on our coffee table. What about the painting?



Bette and Everett sit silently in the living room with Angelica. June carries a salad past window and sees Shane and Carmen jump into the pool, topless. They surface and make out. June, mortified, drops the salad.

At dinner, Tina stares nervously at the painting behind her parents. Bette holds Angelica.

JUNE There are two topless women kissing in your pool.

BETTE I am not taking down art to appease your homophobic parents.

Bette darts outside. Tina closes the blinds. Everett enters the kitchen. The phone rings, unnoticed.

Doorbell rings, they answer. JUNE and EVERETT KENNARD enter. Tina hugs them.

TINA I'm sorry. Our neighbors use our pool.

TINA It is so good to see you. You remember Bette.

EVERETT You let naked deviants use your pool?

June extends her hand. Everett grips his jacket.

DANA (on answering machine) Some girl is following me. I think it's that crazy fan from my last match. Alice calls ten times a day but she can't answer her f*cking phone when I have a stalk-

BETTE And this is Angelica. June reaches to hold her. Everett looks curiously from Angelica to Tina.

BETTE (picks up phone) Remember how Tina's parents were coming? Yes, they did. All of it. No, call the police.

INT. DANA'S CAR – EVENING JACKIE follows Dana. Agitated, Dana takes two quick rights then stops at a stop sign. Jackie is stopped at Dana's left.

INT. DANA'S CAR – NIGHT DANA What do you want? An autograph? A ball?

Dana tries Alice again.

Dana lobs tennis ball at car.

DANA Dammit for once I need you to be clingy. Pick up!

EVERETT You never put her down? She even sleeps with you? Sees you share a bed? TINA She sees her parents love her and each other. BETTE Between attachment parenting and Angelica's ethnicity, we are making it easier for her to understand her family dynamic. JUNE I think that's a smart idea. EVERETT Ethnicity? BETTE We wanted both of our backgrounds to be represented in her genetics, so she would resemble us both.

Our donor American.

TINA was


JUNE (trying to change subject) We'd love to be at her baptism. BETTE We've decided to expose her to a diverse range of spiritual options. EVERETT She's black?

BETTE Like Buddhist, Taoist Christian.


EVERETT This salt and pepper thing is hard enough. Now you've got a black baby? TINA She's only half black. Bette looks appalled. TINA You promised you'd try to tolerate our lives for what they are. BETTE Tolerance isn't enough. Tina needs your acceptance and so does Angelica. And I will not tolerate my daughter hearing racial slurs. EVERETT Well when you have a daughter, I'll be sure not to say any. The front door bangs open. Alice storms down the hall, shouting.

ALICE (O.S.) I hope you're here. I'm in deep sh*t. I totally f*cked up and had Dana followed and I gotta stop her from calling the cops but I don't want her to know I maybe I went a little overboard but... Oh sh*t...

INT. ALICE'S APARTMENT – NIGHT DANA We should call the cops before we get Sharon Tated. ALICE I'm so sorry. I had a friend follow you.

Alice enters the dining room, Everett stands. ALICE (CONT'D) Oh f*ck. Sh*t, I mean, crap. I'm so sorry. Um... I'll go... f*ck. EVERETT June, I was raised in the church of God and all of this is an abomination. You gave your life to Christ when you married me. I can't understand why you encourage them. We're leaving. ALICE I hate to break it to you, but there's no God and you aren't going anywhere cause I'm blocking you in. JUNE Tina, I'm sorry. I wanted this to be different.

DANA (angry, shocked) What? ALICE It's not as bad... okay, it's worse than it sounds, but I'm going to try and make it sound better than it is. I mean, I'm sorry Dane, it's just that, with Lara sniffing around... DANA Sniffing around? ALICE Emailing you with her parsley flirting, I mean, she really loved you. DANA How do you know she emailed me?

ALICE (stands up, agitated) I sort of went through your email. DANA You what? Alice, what do we have without trust? I need to know where your head is. You're scaring me. ALICE I trust you. I just don't trust Lara. She's not over you and, I mean, women will do anything to get what they want. Look at Helena.

DANA Al. Seriously, if you don't trust Lara, we can get past that. But you have to trust me. I love you. I'm not going anywhere. Can we please stop with this craziness?

ALICE (yells) Yeah, Jackie, you can go. I'll pay you tomorrow. Dana embraces Alice in forgiveness. INT. BETTE AND TINA'S – LATE NIGHT

ALICE I guess that's fair. It's just that Lara's beautiful and talented and she doesn't burn dinner and she knows what to say and how to impress people and, I mean, what do I do, Dane? I keep track of who's screwing who on public radio and I stick, like, my entire leg in my mouth every time I speak and I've gained ten pounds and... DANA Alice. Stop. Lara is all those things but she can't make me laugh till I pee and she doesn't know I need mint ice cream when I'm depressed and she can't rent a movie without calling me because she doesn't know what I love. She can't find that spot on my neck that makes my knees buckle and all my friends don't love her and love how she thinks about all these connections that other people think are silly but that I totally get. She's not you, Alice. So she's not for me.

BETTE I can't believe you justified my ethnicity to appease that racist bastard. You insulted who I am as a person, Tina. TINA Bette, I was just trying to shut him up. BETTE Well I guess I'm only half angry then.

Shane nibbles down Carmen's neck until she reaches her shoulder. CARMEN We can't do this now! People are gonna start arriving any minute SHANE This is your fault. CARMEN What's my fault? SHANE You don't realize how goddamn sexy your shoulders are. And you had to go sport an off the shoulder look. CARMEN We'll have all the time in the world to be together now that I'll be living here!

WARREN I will not have this conversation. Not at my Shabbats table. Warren exits. JENNY I'm sorry mom.

SANDY Jenny. WARREN Women aren't allowed to do it.

SANDY Jenny, why do you have to start in?

SANDY Who has provided for us and given us many wonderful years together. JENNY Your gratitude is unnecessary. SANDY All I have ever wanted was a family with traditional Jewish values.

JENNY Yes they are. The Torah commands men and women to keep the Sabbath. It doesn't say who's supposed to make the blessings on Friday night. WARREN Since when do you quote from the Torah? JENNY I went to Jewish day school for six years, Warren. SANDY Until you got thrown out. WIDOW Shanda. WARREN Well, it's not the tradition for a woman to do the blessing. JENNY You need to separate the religion from tradition. WARREN A lesbian is advising me on Jewish law and custom. SANDY Jenny's not a lesbian. JENNY Your precious Torah doesn't forbid lesbianism. In fact it's completely silent on the topic.

JENNY It makes me sick to see you brainwashed by that man. SANDY That man is your father.

JENNY No, all you ever wanted was to marry a Jewish doctor who would take care of you, so you've whored yourself to conform to his bastardized vision of a religious life.

Shane hands a bottle to Dana, then comes up behind Carmen who's deejaying and kisses her shoulder. CARMEN I really hope that's Shane. SHANE It's Shane's evil twin sister here to reprimand you for working too hard on your night. I brought you a treat.

MOIRA Do you wanna dance? JENNY

DANA That's what you get for having me followed.

SHANE So do you two. Have some champagne!

MOIRA Hi Jenny. I'm Moira.

MOIRA is playing pool. She notices Jenny writing, drinking a beer alone at a table. They catch each other's eye. Moira shoots in the eight ball and wins the game. She gloats to some buddies and works up the confidence to approach Jenny. MOIRA I bet you'll get an A+.

MOIRA On your paper. I've seen you working on it every night this week.

CARMEN Just remember who knows how to throw a party.

INT. HOSPITAL LOBBY – DAY Bette is standing at the front desk arguing with hospital staff. BETTE (sternly) What do you mean I can't sign her release forms? I am her life partner!

SHANE I recall some brown guacamole earlier this evening.

DESK CLERK (mockingly) life partner, schmife wartner! You can't sign the release forms for Mrs. Kennard. Period! So why don't you doll yourself up, waddle to your (makes quotation marks with his fingers) "life partner" and get her to sign the forms herself?

her gear: A jewel encrusted Prada AT-4 LAW rocket launcher that she shoulders, her Neimen Marcus titanium throwing knifes that she puts in her Manolo Blahnik combat boots and last but not least her 24k gold-plated Gucci M1014 combat shotgun. Bette starts walking through the rubble heading for Tina's room. INT. TINA'S ROOM – DAY

Bette glares angry at the clerk for a moment. BETTE (cold)

Gunshots and screams can be heard from the outside. Tina has hidden with Angelica behind her bed. We hear Bette screaming outside Tina's room.

I'll be back! BETTE (muffled screaming) Eat lead breeders!

DESK CLERK (condescending) I'm sure you will. Bette turns around on her heel and walks back to her Saab in the parking lot. The desk clerk just sits back down and continues his work. We see him typing something into the computer when screams and squealing tires catch his attention. He looks up from his desk just to see Bette ramming her Saab full speed through the glass doors and right at him. The Saab crashes through the desk and traps the clerk barely alive between the car and the wall behind him. The clerk looks at Bette as she glares at him from behind the wheel. Bette's right hand leaves the wheel and reaches for her trusty Dolce & Gabana UZI. She aims it at the trapped clerk and empties a clip of armor piercing rounds into him, sending the rest of the scared visitors and personnel running for cover.

A couple of shotgun blasts can be heard and screams of panicking people. A loud explosion shakes the building just a second before Bette kicks the door in. Surrounded by wallowing smoke, she stands in the doorframe with the still smoking jewel encrusted Prada AT-4 LAW rocket launcher on her shoulder. BETTE Get up babe, time to leave this place! Tina slowly comes out of her hiding place.

Bette calmly reloads and then exits her totaled Saab. She walks calmly to the trunk and opens it. She grabs the rest of

ALICE'S APARTMENT, DUNGEON ROOM – DAY Alice's hidden sex dungeon is a windowless room filled with a huge assortment of sex toys, ranging from strap-ons to a well stocked chest with bondage ropes. We see a naked Dana chained to the wall upside down on an oversized x. Alice stands in front of her with a garden hose.

ALICE (playful) It eats my pussy, or it gets the hose again! DANA (mock pleading) Ooh please don't make me do that. If you let me go now... Alice just grins and sprays Dana with cold water. DANA (surprised) Hey... quit it! ALICE (with a sly smile) Make me! Alice drops the hose and walks up to Dana. INT. AMBULANCE – DAY Bette is driving the ambulance at breakneck speed, sirens wailing. Tina is in the back trying to keep Angelica safe. BETTE (angry) Damn, WeHo starts to look more and more like Vancouver, eh? TINA Yeah, what's that all aboot? They both shrug. BETTE (giddy) Look! Suks-dot-com has a sixty off sale! Bette points at a passing billboard. Bette and Tina look at each other and then at the camera. BETTE & TINA (smiling) At Suks-dot-com we always find the freshest fashion!

INT. LIVING ROOM IN A MANHATTAN APARTMENT – NIGHT Six women are spread around the room, watching Bette and Tina's escape on their TV. WOMAN 1 (bored) Wow, this show manages to get stupider every season... WOMAN 2 (bored too) What did you expect... the guy who created it wrote the story for Barb Wire...

WOMAN 1 (lackadaisical) You got a point there... WOMAN 3 (tipsy) Anyone else want another Sex on the beach? ALL IN UNISON Hells yes!
