SCENE 12


MOE
I have a lot of money… see… I can pay cash… I have more too…


JULES
And you want to invest some of it with us?


MOE
As much as you need to make me popular… so popular I am above the law like those politicians and those celebrities. I want to be untouchable.


JULES
That will take a lot of money.


MOE
I’ve got as much as you need.


(Hands over a big wad of cash)


JULES
I think Mr. Ashton himself would be happy to help you. It looks like you can afford the best.


MOE
Mr.?  I thought it was Ms. Ashton was the top dog here.


JULES
Ms. Ashton is the celebrity face of the business. Mr. Ashton, her brother, runs much of the operation for her.


MOE
I was hoping to see Ms. Ashton. She’s hot.


JULES
I’m sure a meeting could be arranged…


MOE
Hot dog!


JULES
But you’ll want to chat with Mr. Ashton first.


MOE
That’s cool that it’s a family business.  There’s not like another Mr. Husband Ashton?


JULES
Nope, just Penelope and her brother.  They’ve been working together ever since the Black Friday of 2081.


MOE
Oh man… that viral vid she did is one of her most famous.


JULES
He was the only one in the whole family to show up when she hurt during one of the most brutal Black Fridays ever.  More people died that day than in the history of shopping. That’s when Mr. Ashton realized that power of technology when he saw how famous it made his sister and how out of control it made everyone else.


(JONES calculates the date)


JONES
Do we stay or do we go?


BAKER
I’m ready to do a little Black Friday shopping.


JONES
On one of the most notorious days ever?


BAKER
Let’s go see some history.


(BAKER hits his time device and BLACKOUT)
