TRaYvoN/ Spin off of Moesha
BEGINING SCENE

Pilot: Coming home

[We open on a bright sunny morning. We hear muffled bickering up to the back door to the kitchen. We pan over to our beloved 90s parents Frank and Dee Mitchell. Frank turns to Dee giving her one of his famous concerned look. Moesha comes through the door as the bickering comes to a stop.]

MOESHA
(With a huge smile) DADDY. (She screams.)

FRANK
(Trademark laughter) Welcome home pumpkin.

[Moesha jumps into his arms for a hug and she gives her step mother.]

DEE
(Greets her with her positive attitude) Oh, Mo. Welcome back dear.

MOESHA
I have to say it feels great to be home.

[Frank looks around his daughter]

FRANK
So, is it possible to say hello to my grandchildren.

[The camera pans over to two children a 14 year old teen holding his 4 year old sister who is acting a little shy.]

TRAYVON
Hey, grandpa.

[Moesha grabs her daughter from his arms.]

MOESHA
Boy, give your grandparents a hug. What’s wrong with you.

TRAYVON
(He lashes out.) Look. I didn’t even wanna come here.

[Trayvon took off into the living room. Everyone looks concerned. Moesha was about to put her daughter down and check on her son]

FRANK
(He stops her.) No, Mo. Allow me.

[Moesha nods. Frank follows Trayvon and Dee gives Rita attention pinching her cheeks. Your so cute she mouthed.]

[END SCENE]

SCENE 2

[Trayvon is sitting on the couch moping. Frank walks over to him.]

TRAYVON
I already know what your going to say.

FRANK
Don’t be so sure. Sit up son. (He sits down)
I know this can’t be easy Tray but your mom is making the best out of a bad situation. (He notices that Trayvon was still down.) You know your looking more and more like your father.

TRAYVON
(He smiles.) Really. (He said excitedly)

FRANK
(He laughs). Yes sir.

TRAYVON
Thanks grandpa. (He gives him a hug.)

[They were interrupted by Neicy storming through the front door. She lives next door now with her 14 year old daughter.]

NEICY
Hola Mitchell family. (She screams)

[Moesha and Dee walk into the living room to see all the commotion.]

MOESHA
Neicy!

NEICY
Yeah girl.

MOESHA
Oh, my god. (They scream in excitement and hug. )

[END SCENE.]

SCENE 3

[Frank interrupts their reunion]

FRANK
Ah, Neicy can’t that boy ever keep you next door. (She sucks her teeth)

MOESHA
Neicy you live in Hakeem’s old house? (Sounds surprised)

NEICY
Well, yeah. I, ah. Would of told ya. I just-

MOESHA
Don’t sweat it girl. I’m glad you are.

[They both smile and a 14 year old bi racial girl walks through the door.]

SKYY
Mom. Dad wants you to come home.

[Neicy runs over to her daughter and pushes her inside the house.]

NEICY
Honey, don’t you remember your Aunt Mo.

[Mo puts her hand out to shake Skyy’s]

SKYY
Yes. (Said with her arms folded).

[Neicy laughs off the awkwardness]

NEICY
And what about her son Tray. You guys use to play together when you were younger.

SKYY
(She scoffs) Unfortunately.

NEICY
(She laughs nervously) Why don’t you go show Tray around for a little bit so Mo and I can catch up. If that’s good with you Mo?

MOESHA
(Nods her head) Sounds cool to me.

[Neicy holds out some money in Skyy’s face. She’s reluctant.]

SKYY
Fine. (She agreed ripping the cash out of her hand.) I’ll take him to the Rolling Den.

[Skyy and Tray are walking out the house saying their goodbyes]

FRANK
You kids have fun.

[END SCENE]

SCENE 4

[Moesha and Neicy are having coffee and catching up. They have a seat at the kitchen table.]

MOESHA
Girl what? Kim took Andell’s Den and turned it into a roller skating rink.

NEICY
Yup! (She puts her hands up) The Rolling Den (she demonstrated).

MOESHA
(She laughs) Kim’s crazy.

NEICY
It’s the hottest hangout nowadays. She holds roller dance competitions. It’s actually pretty lit.

MOESHA
(She’s surprised) Dang. Maybe Tray can focus his grief on that. You know he’s into dancing like Myles.

NEICY
Oof. That boy could dance. How is he doing? You know I seen “Caught Ya” 1,2 and 3. Is he going to be in anything else.

MOESHA
(She shrugs her shoulders.) I mean he wanted to act. The boy just can’t act. Know what I’m saying.

[they fit bump each other commending the joke and continued to laugh.]

[END SCENE]

SCENE 5

[Skyy and Tray made it to the Rolling Den. It was dim neon lights sparking the room. Loud music and a crowd of people skating doing tricks. Trey was fascinated.]

TRAY
What are they doing?

SKYY
What they don’t have roller skating in Philly?

TRAY
(He sucks his teeth.) of course they do man but I never seen skating like this.

SKYY
You skate?

TRAY
No. I dance.

[Skyy notices his eyes light up while he is watching people dance on skates. She notices Kim and she pulls Tray along while they go up to the counter.]

SKYY
Hi, Auntie Kim. You remember Trayvon.

KIM
Oh my god. Tray, tray. (She gives him a hug)
Oh shoot today was the day you guys were coming. Oh I’m sorry I gotta go see my girl Mo.

[Kim starts to storm out]

SKYY
But Auntie Kim what about the Den?

KIM
Oh, your right. Your in charge. (She threw her the keys.) Don’t forget your lock up.

[Tray looks shocked and Skyy shrugged her shoulders.]

[END SCENE.]

SCENE 6

[Kim storms into the kitchen door scaring Moesha and Neicy]

KIM
Mo Mo.

MOESHA
Kim (they both get up. Kim darts into Moesha’s arms and she hugs her back. Neicy begins to feel left out.)

NEICY
(Gets a little choked up) aw dang.

[it turns into a group hug.]

KIM
The three muskers are back together again.

NEICY
I think you mean musketeers Kim.

KIM
What? That’s what I said.

[Neicy gives an unbelievable look and they are interrupted by a loud constant bang on the front door. They all walk through the kitchen door and Frank and Dee were coming down the stairs.]

MOESHA
What’s that.

FRANK
I don’t know.

[Frank walks over and opens the door. Two police officers escorts Tray and Skyy through the door.]

OFFICER
Are these your children.

MOESHA
Yes, officer. What seems to be the problem?

OFFICER
We caught them selling liquor to underage teenagers at the Rolling Den.

[Neicy steps up to her daughter. ]

NEICY
What?

SKYY
What? Auntie Kim said we were in charge. So we tried to turn a profit.

[Moesha and Neicy both turn to Kim and she was trying to slide off.]

MOESHA
KIM!!!

[she looks like she got caught but than turned around looking at them with a smile. Moesha turns back at the cops.]

Look I am so sorry officers we just moved back to town and I am sorry for the inconvenience but is there a way we we can…

[the officers stop her.]

OFFICER
We understand kids will be kids. But as for you go we have to write you a citation.

[the officer hands Kim a piece of paper and she reluctantly rips it out of his hands. They leave out the house.]

FRANK
Thank you so much gentlemen.

[He closes the door and Moesha and Neicy turn to Kim upset.]

NEICY
Kim you left our kids in charge of the Den what were you thinking?

KIM
Well.

MOESHA
Neicy forget that. Kim you sell booze at your business.

KIM
(She shakes her head). No. That was my own personal stash and you two.. how much money you make?

[Neicy waves Kim off and Moesha sucks her teeth in annoyance. They turn to face their kids.]

MOESHA
Tray come on man what were you thinking? How could you do this?

NEICY
Yeah

MOESHA
One day here and your already causing trouble.

NEICY
Yeah

[Moesha looks at Neicy]

MOESHA
Um Neicy?

NEICY
Huh?

MOESHA
You think maybe you should discipline your own kid.

NEICY
Oh, right. I just thought we was tag teaming em.

[Moesha shakes her head and continues to correct her son].

MOESHA
Tray what do you think your father would say about this?

TRAY
(He lashes out). I don’t know because he’s dead.

[Tray runs up stairs and everyone looks around at one another shocked. Moesha gets upset and runs into the kitchen.]

NEICY
Skyy go home. I’ll deal with you in a minute.

[She leaves.]

Why don’t you guys check on Mo and Kim and I will talk to Tray?

[Frank and Dee agrees.]

[END SCENE]

SCENE 7

[Frank and Dee walk in to the room and Moesha was crying sitting on the couch in the Entertainment area. Frank sat on the coffee table in front of her and Dee sits next to her placing her hand on her back to comfort her.]

MOESHA
(Looks up) I miss him so much daddy.

[Frank and Dee has no idea what to say. ]

FRANK
Oh pumpkin.

[He got up sat on the other side of her and Frank and Dee just held her why she continued to cry. Upstairs Neicy and Kim walk into Moesha’s old bedroom. Tray was sitting on the edge of the bed.]


KIM
Now there you are.

[They stand in front of him looking at him concerned.]

NEICY
You know your not the only one who lost your father. Hakeem was one of our best friends.

TRAY
Really??

KIM
Yeah Keemie was the one that got away. Your lucky I was cool with your mama taking my man..

NEICY
KIM!!

KIM
What? It’s not like I kissed him unlike you.

TRAY
What?

NEICY
KIM!! (She shakes her head). Look what I was trying to say is we all miss him and I know he wouldn’t want you to be punishing your mother. Yes you lost a father but Mo didn’t just loose her husband. She lost her best friend.

[Kim interjects]

KIM
I didn’t go anywhere.

NEICY
Not you. Tray your mom and dad have been together since they were kids. She lost her other half.

KIM
(Wipes tears) Girl that’s beautiful.

TRAY

KIM
That’s what were here for.

[He gets up and gives them a hug.]

[END SCENE]

[Tray walks into the kitchen and Moesha was sitting at the table drinking a cup off coffee.]

TRAY
Can we talk?

[Moesha gestures for him to have a seat. Tray sits down.]

Look, mom. I didn’t mean what I said. I have been mad ever since the accident I lost my way a little bit. Aunt Neicy made me see that I’m not the only one who is hurting and I promise I’ll do better.

MOESHA
Neicy said that? (She sounded surprised)

TRAY
(Nods head) Yeah, and I think I’m gonna like it here.

MOESHA
(She smiles) Yeah.

[He nods and Moesha pulls Tray in for a hug.]
