"What kind of a place is it? Don't you know where you are?"

***********************************************************

Where are You Now?

This is a weird ass episode.

I wrote this very deliberately in a stream of consciousness style, probably inspired by a weird dream, but I don't remember specifically.

I did write the entire script in roughly one sitting, then cast and recorded it immediately - I wanted to see if I could make an entire episode in a single week, which I basically did.

The most challenging effect in this was throwing the chiffoniere down the stairs.

I actually have a sort of sequel - more in tone than using the same character(s), obviously - in mind, and may do it someday. A big part of the idea for this was to make the vast bulk of the dialog mine, so I didn’t have to get too much out of other people, thus making it a quicker recording turnaround.

SPOILER ALERT!!!

I'm going to explain, sort of, what this episode is and what it means, at the end of the transcript, below. A lot of info will be there, since most of my memories of making this are tied up in why I wrote what I wrote.

MUSIC

SCENE 1.

SOUND A SLOW CHORD, WHICH STAYS UNTIL NOTED

DOC Where are you now?

MARNIE [startled awake] What?

DOC Can you hear my voice, Marnie?

MARNIE Yes.

DOC Where are you now?

MARNIE [slightly panicked] I - I don't know.

DOC Tell me what you see.

MARNIE I see a room.

DOC Are there people in the room?

MARNIE [fear] Yes!

DOC You are safe, Marnie. Calm down. Now tell me what you see.

MARNIE [calm, almost robotic] I see five people sitting at the table.

DOC Are you sitting with them?

MARNIE No, I'm in the corner.

DOC Do they know you're there?

MARNIE [ominous] Oh, yes.

DOC Tell me what they look like.

MARNIE There's a very old man, a small boy, a girl who looks a bit older than the boy, a police officer, and a very large man with a bag over his head.

DOC Is there food on the table?

MARNIE No. It's not here yet.

DOC Good. Tell me one thing about the little girl.

MARNIE Her eyes can suck your soul.

DOC Good. And the old man?

MARNIE He has a scar on his leg that aches when it rains.

DOC Good. Has the food arrived yet?

MARNIE The one with the bag is named Harold.

DOC Please answer only the questions I ask you, Marnie.

MARNIE [frightened, small] I'm sorry.

DOC I forgive you.

MARNIE I love you.

DOC That was not the question.

MARNIE [trying to remember] Um. Um. The food! No. Still no food.

DOC Good. Are you comfortable?

MARNIE [lying, almost a whisper] Yessss.

DOC Very good. Tell me about where you are sitting.

MARNIE I'm in the corner.

DOC Are you in a chair? Look down.

MARNIE It's a chair with wheels, and straps.

DOC Straps? Are you strapped in?

MARNIE [breathing hard, getting louder and louder] Yes - my hands are - hands are - I can move them, but the leather cuffs - like movies about crazy people!

DOC Are you crazy?

MARNIE [almost a wail] No!

DOC Can you control yourself, Marnie?

MARNIE [a couple of gasping breaths, then quickly] Yes!

DOC I can help you.

MARNIE [wail] No! No! [gasp, then tight but controlled] No. I'm all right.

DOC For now.

MARNIE I feel... peachy.

DOC [beat] Your hands are restrained. What else?

MARNIE There's ...
