Lives of soldiers in a war between two factions (This is a script for a machinima series)
EPISODE ONE
TAPPING THE BRAKES

Driving through a mountainside road is an army jeep with four occupants inside; Cracker, Stevenson, Blake and Eddy. The jeep breaks down.

CRACKER
“What’s going on, Stevenson? Why are we stopped?”

Stevenson, the driver looks over to Cracker.

STEVENSON
“I didn’t stop the car, it just stopped by itself.”

BLAKE
“Gnarly.”

EDDY
“Are you sure you didn’t tap the brakes?”

Stevenson turns around and looks at Eddy.

STEVENSON
“Why would I tap the brakes on a straight road you dumbshit?”

EDDY
“I don’t know. Maybe there was something on the road that may’ve caused you to tap the brakes.”

STEVENSON
“The road is empty you idiot.”

BLAKE
“Whoa, gnarly.”

CRACKER

“Shut your hole, Blake.”

Cracker and Stevenson get out of the jeep and examine it. Eddy gets out also and looks around.

STEVENSON
“I can’t see anything wrong with it, what about you, Sarge?”

CRACKER
“Nothing. You’re right, it just stopped by itself.”

BLAKE
(Faintly)
“Gnarly.”

Eddy crouches down and looks under the vehicle. He jumps up suddenly as he sees a body under the jeep.

EDDY
“Whoa, shit! You drove over someone, Stevenson!”

Cracker and Stevenson crouch down to have a look and see the body.

CRACKER
“He’s right. You hit someone, Stevie.”

STEVENSON
(Nervously)
“Um, that was, like, already there.”

EDDY
“You killed the poor bastard.”

STEVENSON
“No I didn’t, like I said, it was already there.”

The body under the car starts to moan and talk.

CRACKER
“Holy shit! Did that body just make a noise?”

BLAKE
“Gnarly.”

CRACKER
“Shut up, Private.”

The body moans again.

EDDY
“Hey, are you alright, dude?”

BODY
“Of course I’m not alright! I just got ran over for Christ’s sake! Do you always ask such stupid questions?”

EDDY
“No, not usually.”

STEVENSON
“That’s bullshit and you know it. You ask everyone back at base when they’re sleeping, “Are you asleep?” That’s a stupid-ass question.”

EDDY
“No it’s not.”

BODY
“Hey, this car is kinda heavy, do you think you can get it off me?”

STEVENSON
“It is a stupid question! If they’re asleep you get no answer, and if they’re awake, you get an answer which you already know the answer to because they answered you, so it cancels out the reason of asking the question in the first place!”

Everyone is silent for up to ten seconds.

EDDY
“Fuck you.”
