EXT. WOODS - DAY

Early morning. Sharon walks along a rough path in the woods.
Leaves CRINKLE under her feet. She appears lost in thought.
Dark thoughts.

RICK (O.S.)
You okay?

SHARON turns. Leaning against a tree is Rick. He looks
dashing. Sharon beams, clearly happy to see him. She runs
to him and wraps her arms around his neck. They kiss.

RICK
I've missed you.

SHARON
I've missed you.

RICK
What have you been up to?

Sharon looks away, awkwardly.

SHARON
Umm... you know.

RICK
No, I don't know. Tell me.

SHARON
Rick.

Sharon hugs herself tightly to Rick.

RICK
What's wrong?

SHARON remains silent.

RICK
Are you having troubles... adjusting?

SHARON
I am experiencing, like, total
misadjustment.

Rick takes Sharon's hand. They walk along the path.

RICK
It was difficult for me at first,
too, you know? But it gets easier.
It helps to talk about it. Tell me
what you're feeling.

SHARON
Powerful. Free. But scared.

RICK
Too much freedom is what's scaring
you. Right? Afraid you'll go too
far?

SHARON
Yes, like, exactly. I -- don't kill
me, but last night, I sorta, kinda
attacked Brad Pitt.

Rick stops walking. Sharon shuts her eyes tightly, waiting.
Beat. Sharon opens her eyes.

RICK
You sorta, kinda attacked Brad Pitt?

SHARON shakes her head quickly.

RICK
Does he go to your school?

SHARON
Brad Pitt. The actor? "Thelma and
Louise"? "Legends of the Fall"?
"Seven"? He's shooting a movie in
town?

RICK
I don't see movies. I live in the
woods, remember?

SHARON
Well, anyway, I saw him and I had to,
like, have him! I couldn't control
it.
I broke into his trailer and waited
for him and then, like, attacked him
when he came in, like, sexually.
Then he mentioned Gwyneth Paltrow,
his girlfriend -- who doesn't deserve
him, by the way! That scrawny
hairless...

RICK
I like music.

SHARON
Hmm?

RICK
When I first underwent the Change,
music became something different for
me. It sounded different. Brighter.

SHARON
Don't you mean, like, louder?

RICK
No, brighter. I could see music; the
different shades of color. Rock has
an angry, bright purple tint.
Classical, proud and golden.
Country, well, it's a murky, sick
green, but forget country. I
couldn't get enough of music. One
night, I went to a club to hear this
alternative band and the colors were
so... It was like being on acid, but
with a clear mind. And without
thinking, I started to Change, I was
so into it. Right in front of
everyone. I hadn't realized that I
was Changing until someone screamed.

SHARON
So you got out of there.

RICK
Yeah. But I was so into seeing what
else was out there beyond human
perception, I didn't care if anyone
saw me Change. And that's what
really scared the hell out of me.
I've been cautious ever since. But
I still love music.

Sharon and Rick come to the end of the path. Before them is
a road. A car is parked to the side of the road.

Rick motions to the car.

RICK
Ride to school?

Sharon nods "yes". They start for the car.

SHARON
So what are you saying?

RICK
I'm saying that this incident with
Brett Pitt...

SHARON
Brad.

RICK
-- is the necessary shock you needed
to help you begin to control the
Change. Most of us experience an
event like the one you did which
causes us to, finally, get things
under control. My event was due to
my love for music. For some, it's
food.

SHARON
And mine is...

RICK
Sex.
(beat)
Mind you, I'm not complaining.

Sharon glowers at Rick, who smiles back. Rick opens the car
door for Sharon and swings around to the driver's side.

SHARON

Rick, this car looks familiar. Where
did you get it?

RICK
A kid at school loaned it to me for
a small fee.

SHARON
What kid?

RICK
Um. Tino something?

Sharon nods. They climb into the car. The ENGINE comes to
life and they drive off.


INT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT - DAY

VAMP HALLIE stands before the windows, which are covered by
black curtains. She slowly pushes a curtain to the side. A
sunbeam strikes her hand. Smoke and a SIZZLING sound. Vamp
Hallie leaps back, holding her hand.

VAMP HALLIE
Dammit!

HALLOHAN (O.S.)
What did I tell you?

Vamp Hallie walks to the bathroom door.
Inside the bathroom, Hallohan stands before the mirror,
applying a cream to his face.

HALLOHAN
Hurts, doesn't it?

VAMP HALLIE
Why can't I use that cream, too?

HALLOHAN
Even with the cream, you wouldn't
last very long out there under Mr.
Sun.

VAMP HALLIE
Well, how come you can?

HALLOHAN
I've built up a tolerance. Don't
worry...

VAMP HALLIE
I'm not worried.

HALLOHAN
-- give yourself a few decades and
you'll be able to venture into the
daylight, too. Using the cream, of
course.

Hallohan passes Vamp Hallie as he exits the bathroom. She
inhales.

VAMP HALLIE
You know you smell like you fell into
a vat of suntan oil?

Hallohan puts on his suit coat and walks to the door.

HALLOHAN
S
ee you tonight.

He shuts the door behind him, leaving Vamp Hallie alone. She
enters the bathroom and picks up the tube of cream. She
spreads some on her hand, then exits the bathroom to the
window. She pulls back the curtain. For several beats,
nothing happens to the hand she holds in the sunlight. But
slowly, Vamp Hallie's expression changes from calm to anxious
to agonizing pain. Meanwhile, her hand begins to smoke.

VAMP HALLIE
Aaahhhh...!

Then, her hand begins to SIZZLE. Vamp Hallie rips her hand
away from the window.

VAMP HALLIE
SON OF A...!!!


INT. LIBERTY HIGH SCHOOL/HALLWAY - DAY
ON BRIAN

BRIAN
BITCH!

ON SHARON AND RICK

SHARON
Excuse me?

BRIAN
You heard me! Bitch!

Sharon rolls her eyes as she walks to her locker. Brian
steps forward, but Rick places an arm against the wall,
effectively blocking Brian. Brian walks into Rick's arm and
bounces backward like a rubber ball.

RICK
Sorry.

Brian looks up at Rick and swallows. He turns his attention
to Sharon.

BRIAN
Who's going to pay for the damage to
my front door? I mean, like, my
parents freaked when they saw the
damage and they're making me pay for
it, which is, like, fine, but I mean,
like, who's going to pay me, you know?

SHARON
I'm impressed, Krakow. She must be
a special girl. You get some and now
you're using words like "bitch". You
didn't act like this when you and Angela...

Angela and Rickie round the corner.

SHARON

Angela! Hi! How are you? Thanks
again for your help the other night.

Angela gives Sharon a weird look and keeps on walking.

Rickie waves "hi", but keeps up with Angela.

SHARON
Okay! Good to see you! 'Bye! Damn.

BRIAN
So, like, the money?

Sharon turns to Brian and bares her teeth.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Krakow.

RICK
Sharon.

Sharon composes herself.

SHARON
Walking around with condoms in your
wallet, Krakow? Getting quite
confident, aren't we?

Sharon and Rick walk away from the stunned Brian.

BRIAN
How -- how...?

RICK
The spermicide on your condoms has a
distinct odor.

SHARON
Be sure to book yourself some time in
the boiler room.

Sharon and Rick round the corner. Brian takes his wallet out
of his back pocket and sniffs it awkwardly.


INT. LIBERTY HIGH SCHOOL/GUIDANCE OFFICE - DAY

Hallohan sits at this desk, looking through a folder.

HALLOHAN
Now...
(searches for name)
-- Laquisha, you're interested in the
advanced art class?

Hallohan looks up from the folder. Across from him, in the
chair before his desk, sits Corey.
COREY
Laquisha?

HALLOHAN
You're not Laquisha?

Corey shakes his head "no". Hallohan throws the folder down
on the desk.

HALLOHAN
God dammit! You know, this school
has got the worst filing system I've
ever seen!

Hallohan stabs the intercom button on his phone.

HALLOHAN
(yelling into
intercom)
Grace!

Corey jumps in his seat, startled.


INT. LIBERTY HIGH SCHOOL/OUTSIDE GUIDANCE OFFICE - DAY

The door to the guidance offices opens. Corey and Hallohan
step out into the hallway. Hallohan waves a cheery good-bye
to Corey.

HALLOHAN
All right there. Glad to help. Yes.
Run along now.

Corey gives Hallohan a funny look, then walks away. Hallohan
is about to step back into his office when he spots Sharon
and Rick coming down the hall.
Sharon falters in her tracks when she sees Hallohan. She
stops and turns around.

RICK
What's wrong?

Rick and Hallohan make eye contact. Rick's nose wrinkles.
He snarls and his eyes glow red.

SHARON
Rick, come on.

The red glow in Rick's eyes fade as he turns the corner after Sharon.

HALLOHAN
Humph. Well, excuse me for not
breathing.

Hallohan steps back into his office and shuts the door behind
him.


INT. LIBERTY HIGH SCHOOL/HALLWAY - DAY

Rick trails after Sharon.

RICK
What was that all about? You know
him?

SHARON
Hallohan. He's the new guidance
counselor.

RICK
He's no guidance counselor. You know
what he is.

Rick looks back down the hallway, in the direction in which
they came.

RICK
We have to destroy him.

SHARON
What?! Why?

RICK
We have to destroy all of them.
They're evil. They feed off life.

SHARON
So do we.

RICK
We don't kill. We hunt to survive
and we don't enjoy it. There's a big
difference between our kind and his.

Brian rounds the corner, just in time to hear:

RICK
How long have you known the guidance
counselor was a vampire?

Brian does a one-eighty and goes back around the corner.

SHARON
Not... long.

RICK
We should do it now, during the
daylight when he's weakest. No, we
have to follow him.

SHARON
Where? Why?

RICK
We have to see if there are others.

Sharon's eyes widen.

SHARON
Others?

RICK
He may have already made others and
spread his disease. After school, we
track him and destroy him and any
others we find.

Sharon swallows, nervously.


EXT. LIBERTY HIGH SCHOOL/FACULTY PARKING LOT - DAY

After school. The football team practices on the near-by
field.
Hallohan, whistling a tune, walks from the school building to
his car. He gets in, STARTS IT UP, and drives out of the
parking lot.
From the student lot, Rick and Sharon, in their borrowed car,
emerge and start after Hallohan.


EXT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT BUILDING - DAY

A busy downtown street before Hallohan's apartment building.

HALLOHAN pulls his car into the underground parking garage.
Across the street, Rick drives the car up on to the curb.

RICK cuts the wheel back to the left. The car DROPS DOWN
HARD off the sidewalk.


INT. RICK'S CAR - DAY

Sharon looks at Rick, surprised.

RICK
Sorry. It's been a while since I've
driven.

Rick looks out the window at Hallohan's apartment building.

SHARON
You think this is where he lives?

RICK
Yeah.

SHARON
How are we supposed to figure out
which apartment? Should we, like,
bribe the doorman or something?


EXT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT - DAY

Nine stories up, the window of Hallohan's apartment are
tightly covered in black curtains. All the other windows to
the other apartments are open to the sunlight.


INT. RICK'S CAR - DAY

Rick stares up at the curtains and nods.


CUT TO:
LATER

Sharon stands on the street. She SLAMS the car door. Rick
is still in the car.

SHARON
Tell me again why I have to stay here?

RICK
We have no idea how many are up
there. I have to go get the pack.

Sharon stares blankly at Rick.

RICK
For reinforcements? Just hang out in
the coffee shop, okay? But don't
make any moves!

Sharon steps back from the car as Rick pulls away from the
curb. She looks up at Hallohan's apartment window, then
heads for a coffee shop.


INT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT - NIGHT

Hallohan is on the phone. Beat. He hangs up, then turns to Vamp Hallie.

HALLOHAN
He's out on bail.

Hallohan heads for the front door.

VAMP HALLIE
I can handle it, you know.

HALLOHAN
(sighs)
If you want something done right...

Hallohan exits.

VAMP HALLIE
(mutters)
Jerk.


INT. COFFEE SHOP - NIGHT

Sharon sits by the window, looking up at Hallohan's apartment
window. It's grown dark out. Sharon sips cold coffee, then
makes a face.
She sits up. Something has caught her attention.


EXT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT BUILDING - NIGHT

Hallohan, in his car, exits his apartment building's
underground garage. He starts down the block.


INT. COFFEE SHOP - NIGHT

Sharon watches Hallohan anxiously. She doesn't know what to
do. She rises, then sits back down, then stands up again.

SHARON
Oh. Damn it. Rick! Where are you?


EXT. ROAD - NIGHT

Rick's car sits on the side of the road in the middle of
nowhere. The trunk is open. A spare tire rests against the
side of the car. Three guys stand around the rear of the
car, staring down at the spare. One of the guys holds the
tire-jack. BARBARINO, tall, long, dark hair, shrugs.

BARBARINO
Don't look at me. Fuck do I know
about changin' a tire? I spend most
of my time on all fours.

Pesto, a short, portly guy, steps up to Barbarino and stares
right up into his face.

PESTO
Do I look like the Michelin Man to
you? Am I considered the
automechanic guru of werewolves or
somethin'?

DAWG, a big, beefy man with a simple face, looks up from the
tire-jack he's trying to figure out how to operate.
DAWG
Whut's a Michelin Man?

PESTO
Just keep playin' with the tire-jack,
all right?

DAWG
Whut's a tire-jack?

Dawg scratches his back with the tire-jack. Rick stands up
from the side of the car, where he's been checking out the
flat tire.

PESTO
'Ey, Rick! What's the prognosis?

RICK
I don't believe these humans. They
are ecological slobs! How can they
just leave beer bottles lying around,
waiting for us to drive over them?

PESTO
So, what are we gonna do, huh?

BARBARINO freaks. He leaps back from the car and jumps
around, then runs his hands through his long hair several
times.

BARBARINO
I, like, don't believe this! All the
things we can do considering what we
are...

DAWG
Whut are we?

BARBARINO
-- and none of us knows how to change
a flat tire?! Oh, this is great.
This is just great. SANDY!!!

PESTO

Rick, I don't wanna step on your
leadership or nothin' considerin'
you're the alpha male an' all, but
maybe we could proceed on foot. As
in all four of 'em?

RICK
The vampire lives in the city. Are
you sure you want to go there in any
form other than this?

Pesto looks to Barbarino then to Dawg, who stares blankly at Pesto,
who looks back at Rick. Beat. Rick removes his shirt
and tosses it to the ground.

RICK
All right. Let's do it.


CUT TO:
EXT. FIELD - NIGHT

Four wolves run across a dark field at break-neck speed.


EXT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT BUILDING/ROOFTOP - NIGHT

SHARON, now in her upright wolf form, lands on the roof of
Hallohan's apartment building. She stands at the edge and
looks down at the street.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Ooo... please let this work, please
let this work...

Sharon lowers herself over the side of the building. She
digs her claws into tiny cracks in the building and begins
her decent.


INT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT - NIGHT

Vamp Hallie finishes putting on a leather jacket and is about
to head toward the door when there's a KNOCK at the window.
She pauses, then slowly turns around to face the window.
Another KNOCK. Vamp Hallie goes to the window, places her
hand on the curtain, then flings it aside.
Outside the window, hanging by her claws, is Sharon.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Like, hi.

VAMP HALLIE
Did you climb all the way up here?

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Actually, I climbed down. Can I come
in?

Vamp Hallie opens the window and Sharon climbs in.

VAMP HALLIE
What are you doing here?

SHARON
(wolf voice)
I came to warn you.

VAMP HALLIE
Warn me about what?

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Um, I don't know how to, like, say
this, so I'll just, you know, say it.
My boyfriend is the alpha male of a
pack of werewolves, which I'm one of.
I'm the alpha female, I guess.
Actually, I'm the only female. Well,
see, there was another female, Delia,
whose bite Changed me, but she was
thrown out of the pack because she
ate too much. Anyway, Rick saw
Hallohan today at school and now he
wants to destroy him and any other
vampires he created, which is, you
know, you. The pack is on their way
now. So, like, what are we going to
do?

VAMP HALLIE
I have to find Hallohan.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
You do? I was, like, kinda hoping
that you'd just...

VAMP HALLIE
-- run and hide? Mm-mmm. That's not
my style. C'mon.

Vamp Hallie takes Sharon's hand and they start for the door.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Wait!

VAMP HALLIE
Look, Sharon! I don't want to hear
about where your loyalties lie, all
right? I understand how you feel the
need to stand by your pack! I feel
the same way! We'll just have to
decide where we fall when it comes
down to it!

SHARON
(wolf voice)
I was just going to say that I can't
go out the door looking like this and
if I transform, I'll be naked.

VAMP HALLIE
Oh. Okay. We'll go out the window.


INT. CATALANO HOUSE/LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

GEORGE sits on the couch, guzzling down a beer. On the TV is
"America's Funniest Home Videos".

GEORGE
(to the TV)
Bob Saget, shut the fuck up!

As if on cue, the power cuts out, plunging the room into
darkness.

GEORGE
Son of a bitch.

A KNOCK at the front door.


INT. CATALANO HOUSE/FRONT HALL - NIGHT

Another KNOCK. Beat. A strong blow is delivered to the
front door, SMASHING it inward. It CLATTERS loudly to the
floor.
The silhouette of a man stands in the doorway.


EXT. STREET - NIGHT

RICK, in his Dark Wolf form, and the three other wolves run
along the sidewalk. PEDESTRIANS scream and leap out of their
way.
One wolf turns his head to another. The wolves' lines are
subtitled on the screen and not heard.

PESTO WOLF
(subtitled)
'Ey! The big city! I ain't been in
one of these forever!

BARBARINO WOLF
(subtitled)
I sure could go for a slice of
pepperoni pizza! I love pepperoni!

DAWG WOLF
(subtitled)
Something smells bad.

Rick Dark Wolf skids to a halt before Hallohan's apartment
building.

RICK DARK WOLF
(subtitled)
We're here.

Barbarino Wolf shakes his head and snorts.

BARBARINO WOLF
(subtitled)
Dawg's right! Somethin' stinks!

Pesto Wolf has the same reaction.

PESTO WOLF
(subtitled)
Holy Bobby Deniro! Once you've
smelled that stink you never forget
it! That's the stink of the undead!

DAWG WOLF
(subtitled)
Whut's a undead?

RICK DARK WOLF
(subtitled)
He's left. Probably in search of
blood. Sharon...

Rick Dark Wolf looks across the street to the coffee shop.
He sniffs the air.

RICK DARK WOLF
(subtitled)
She's gone, too.

A frightened CROWD has gathered around the wolves. SIRENS
off in the distance. Dawg HOWLS along with the sirens,
startling the crowd.

DAWG WOLF
(subtitled)
Oowwww! That noise hurts my ears!

RICK DARK WOLF
(subtitled)
We have to go! Now!
The wolfpack takes off, scattering the crowd as they break
through it.


INT. JORDAN'S CAR - NIGHT

Jordan drives his car, Red, down the block.
In a blur, Vamp Hallie and Sharon the She-Wolf race by in
front of Jordan. He SLAMS on the brakes and stares out the
windshield, dumb-founded. Beat. Jordan activates the
windshield wipers and lets them run for a beat before
shutting them off. He checks again. Everything's clear. He
continues on his way.


EXT. STREET - NIGHT

The wolfpack sprints along a suburban street.

PESTO WOLF
(subtitled)
'Ey, we're headed into the suburbs!
Where's this vampire fuck headed
anyway?

DAWG WOLF
(subtitled)
Whut's a suburbs?


INT. CATALANO HOUSE/LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

GEORGE sits tied to a chair in the middle of the living room.
A cigarette dangles from his lips.
A figure moves about silently in the shadows. A match is
STRUCK. The flame is placed before George's cigarette. The
tip of the cigarette flares brightly as George inhales. The
figure cautiously brings the match to his lips. We see the
figure's face now. No surprise, it's Hallohan. He blows out
the match.

GEORGE
Don't like flames much, huh?

HALLOHAN
No vampire does.

Long beat. George takes a drag of the cigarette and blows
the smoke up into the air. Hallohan coughs.

GEORGE
So, you're a vampire.

HALLOHAN
You know I am.

GEORGE
You know. I read a lot. Especially
things that have to do with the
supernatural. I love that shit.
Always have. Ever since I was a kid.
Werewolves, vampires, magic. That
stuff fascinates me. So, I don't
know if you know this or not, but
vampires were spawned by queers.

Hallohan raises his eyebrows at George.

HALLOHAN
Come again?

GEORGE
Sodom and Gomorrah.

HALLOHAN
Sodom and Gomorrah?

GEORGE
(nods head)
Sodom and Gomorrah.

Hallohan sits down on the couch before George.

HALLOHAN
Never heard of 'em.

GEORGE
Y'see. Back in the old days, the
Biblical old days, there were these
two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah. Now,
these cities were full of the most
depraved, sick fucks around. They
were into shit you couldn't believe.
You name it, they had already thought
of it, explored it, exhausted it.
They got so sick and demented,
eventually, God himself had to
intervene. See, it wasn't just the
ass-fucking that got God pissed, or
the monkey-fucking, either, it was
the blood-drinking.

HALLOHAN
They drank each other's blood?

GEORGE
Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah. They were
drinkin' each other's blood and God
saw that as one of the most unnatural
acts a human being could commit
because it was stealing the substance
that gave life. God got riled up
enough to destroy the two cities and
all the inhabitants. But some
managed to escape, right? Y'see?
But they got theirs in the end. The
ones who got away were cursed with
the need for blood. God's got a
sense of humor, you know?

HALLOHAN
Oh, I know he does. You ever see
Barbra Streisand's face?

GEORGE
I don't know that chick. I don't
know her. So, God, with his twisted
sense of humor, gives these sickos
exactly what they wanted.
The sickos are cursed to live
forever, but if they wanna stay
pretty in the face, they gotta drink
blood. And these folks, who were so
crazy about the night life, well,
shit, now all they got is the night
life 'cause if they go out into the
sunlight... poof. I'd sure like to
see that first sorry son of a bitch
who made that discovery. So, you see
what I'm sayin'? You, vampire, you
are the blood-descendent of the
original shit-packers.

Beat. Hallohan and George stare each other down. George
blinks first.

HALLOHAN
Well, that's quite an incredible
tale, Mr. Catalano. I'm not sure if
I buy it, but your knowledge
surprises me.

GEORGE
Yeah, I taught my kid all this, but
who knows if anything I ever said to
him has penetrated that thick skull
of his.

Hallohan rises from the couch. He steps in closer to George.

GEORGE
Whew. You reek like week-old suntan
lotion.

HALLOHAN
You know. I'm really getting sick of
people telling me that.

Hallohan pulls his lips back, revealing long fangs. He sinks
his teeth into George's neck. George kicks and struggles
against Hallohan, but it's useless.

VAMP HALLIE (O.S.)
Neil, stop!

Hallohan swivels around.
Vamp Hallie and Sharon stand at the doorway.

HALLOHAN
Stop?


INT. JORDAN'S CAR - NIGHT

Jordan continues driving along until he's forced to SLAM on
the brakes. Rick's pack of wolves go sprinting by Jordan's
car, BARKING all the way. Jordan stares for a beat.

JORDAN
Doggies. Big doggies.

He continues driving.


INT. CATALANO HOUSE/LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

Hallohan takes a step toward Vamp Hallie and Sharon.

HALLOHAN
You're telling me to stop?

SHARON
Stay back!

HALLOHAN
Or what? What's going on here? What
the hell are you two doing here?

VAMP HALLIE
Neil, listen to me. There's
something you have to know...

PESTO (O.S.)
(wolf voice)
Holy Martin Scorcese!

Vamp Hallie and Sharon swivel around.


INT. CATALANO HOUSE/FRONT HALL - NIGHT

The wolfpack, in their upright forms, stands at the front
door.

PESTO
(wolf voice)
It's a vamp-chick!

VAMP HALLIE
"Chick"?

BARBARINO
(wolf voice)
Like, Sharon, get the hell away from
that vamp-bitch so we can, like, you
know, scrag her ass and what-not.

VAMP HALLIE SHARON
(to Barbarino) (wolf voice; to Pesto)
You just try to scrag my She's not the vampire you
ass! want!

BARBARINO RICK
(wolf voice) (to Sharon)
Oh, I'm gonna love Sharon, you've been
scraggin' your ass, honey! consorting with a vampire?!

VAMP HALLIE DAWG
Don't call me honey! It's (wolf voice)
Vamp Hallie! Whut's consorting?

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Rick, she's my friend!

Sharon points her finger at Hallohan.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
He's the evil one!

Hallohan enters the front hall. He bares his fangs at the
wolfpack. Hallohan's eyes flare red as he looks at Rick.

HALLOHAN
You.

VAMP HALLIE
Okay! Everyone just hang on a
second!

Hallohan and the wolfpack GROWL menacingly, then launch
themselves at each other. Vamp Hallie and Sharon are caught
in the middle.
Pesto dives at Hallohan. Sharon ducks as Hallohan places his
palm on Pesto's head and, using his momentum, drives Pesto's
head downward into the floor. It SPLINTERS upon impact.
Barbarino dives at Vamp Hallie, but Sharon rises just in time
to be tackled by Barbarino. Vamp Hallie spins out of the way
as both Barbarino and Sharon collide with the swinging
kitchen door. They go CRASHING into the kitchen as the door
swings shut.
Hallohan motions from Vamp Hallie to Dawg.

HALLOHAN
You take him!

Vamp Hallie stares at Dawg, who stands considerably taller
than she.


INT. CATALANO HOUSE/FRONT HALL - NIGHT

Hallohan and Rick face off.

HALLOHAN
(to Rick)
A bit cramped in here. Step outside?

Hallohan dives at Rick and they both go tumbling out the
front door.


EXT. CATALANO HOUSE - NIGHT

Rick and Hallohan go spilling out onto the front lawn,
rolling end over end as they tear and claw at each other.


INT. CATALANO HOUSE/FRONT HALL - NIGHT
Dawg smiles at Vamp Hallie.

DAWG
(wolf voice)
Hi.

VAMP HALLIE
Hi.

DAWG
(wolf voice)
I like fried chicken. Do you?

Pesto raises his head from where it's been imbedded in the
floor.

PESTO
(wolf voice; moans)
Oooo, Mama Celeste, that smarts.


INT. CATALANO HOUSE/LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

While the fight continues, George manages to get free of the
ropes that bind him. He goes to a bookcase and reaches
behind a set of books. He produces a gun.


INT. CATALANO HOUSE/KITCHEN - NIGHT
Inside the kitchen, Barbarino lies on top of Sharon.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Get off me.

BARBARINO
(wolf voice)
Oh, like, I'm sorry about that, but
it it's any consolation, it was good
for me, too.

Barbarino picks himself up off Sharon.

BARBARINO
(wolf voice)
So, you like vampires or somethin'?

SHARON
(wolf voice)
I like one vampire. Vamp Hallie.
She's my friend. What's wrong with
that?

BARBARINO
(wolf voice)
It ain't natural, Sharon! You know?
I'll tell ya, this is one screwed up
wolfpack. I mean, I know some
wolfpacks that have two or three
females, but not us. We can't even
keep one around for very long.
First, it's that freakin' always-
happy Delia who never stopped eatin'
everything we hunted down...

SHARON
(wolf voice)
You shut up about Delia!

BARBARINO
(wolf voice)
And then, there's you, some tripped-
out lesbo werewolf who has a thing
for the undead. Not that there's
anything thing wrong with that. But,
like, how do you get past the smell?

SHARON
(wolf voice)
I am not a lesbo!

A GUNSHOT o.s.. Sharon and Barbarino exchange looks, then
head for the kitchen door.


INT. CATALANO HOUSE/FRONT HALL - NIGHT

Sharon and Barbarino emerge from the kitchen to find George
aiming a gun at Vamp Hallie and the werewolves.

GEORGE
Get outta here, you freaks!
Pesto takes off running out the front door.

PESTO
(wolf voice)
He's shootin'! He's shootin!

Dawg follows Pesto, but Sharon GROWLS. Her eyes glow red.

SHARON
(wolf voice; to George)
You shot me once before. Not again.

Sharon is about to leap at George when Vamp Hallie steps in
front of her. George FIRES the gun.
The bullet STRIKES Vamp Hallie in the chest. She reacts with
shock and slides down to the floor.

VAMP HALLIE
Jeeee-ZUS, that hurts.

Sharon stares at the bullet hole in Vamp Hallie's chest. She
swivels around to George, baring her fangs.

GEORGE
Ooooooh, man...


EXT. CATALANO HOUSE - NIGHT

RICK PUNCHES Hallohan in the jaw just as George comes flying
through the living room window, SHATTERING the glass.
Hallohan and Rick pause to watch George shakily pick himself
up off the the lawn, cut and bleeding here and there.

GEORGE
Bitch...

George staggers about the yard, wildly aiming his gun at Hallohan,
Rick, and Pesto, who duck and bob.

GEORGE
...threw me though my own window...
in my own house...


INT. JORDAN'S CAR - NIGHT

Jordan stares out the window at the scene on his front lawn.
He sees Sharon, Vamp Hallie, and Barbarino join the others.

JORDAN
Doggies in my yard.

Jordan doesn't see his father step out into the street.


EXT. CATALANO HOUSE - NIGHT

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Jordan!

HALLOHAN
Die, Catalano, die!

Rick takes off right for George, simultaneously shifting to
his Dark Wolf form. Jordan SLAMS on the brakes as George
stares wide-eyed at Rick Dark Wolf. He raises his gun and
takes aim at Rick.
George FIRES just as Jordan's car COLLIDES with his father
and then Rick Dark Wolf.
Jordan's car SCREECHES to a halt as Rick and George are sent
sprawling across the street.
Beat. Jordan opens the car door and climbs out. He stares
with that uniquely blank Jordan look at his father's body.

JORDAN
Oops.

PESTO
(wolf voice)
Aw, Jesus.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Rick...

Sharon turns with pleading eyes to Vamp Hallie.

VAMP HALLIE
Go.

Sharon, Pesto, Dawg, and Barbarino run into the street where

Rick's naked human body lies, very still. Blood runs from a
bullet hole in his chest. Sharon kneels down beside Rick.
She cradles his head.
From where he's lying, George manages to lift his head. He
looks at Rick's body.

GEORGE
(whispers weakly)
Silver bullets, you bastard. That'll
learn you.

Jordan leans over his dad.

JORDAN
Dad? Dad!

GEORGE
(weakly)
Gordon... remember what I taught
you...

Georges's head slumps over as he loses consciousness.

JORDAN
Gordon? Who's Gordon?

ON PESTO
inspecting Rick's body.

PESTO
(wolf voice; stunned)
Holy Da Vinci, I think he's dead.

BARBARINO
Dead? Aw, man, that makes me alpha
male.

PESTO
(wolf voice)
I guess it do, don't it?

Pesto looks down at Rick and shakes his head.

PESTO
(wolf voice)
Poor Rick. We're gonna miss ya.

Sharon gently kisses Rick on the forehead, then stands.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
I'm leaving the pack.

BARBARINO
(wolf voice)
Aw, Sharon, no, let's talk about this.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Why bother? My mind's made up.

DAWG
(wolf voice)
I'm gonna miss you, Sharon.

SHARON
(wolf voice)
I'll miss you, too, Dawg.

PESTO
(wolf voice; looks
around)
Hey, where'd the vampires go?

They look around them. Vamp Hallie and Hallohan are gone.

PESTO
(wolf voice)
Son of a bitch...

SHARON
(wolf voice)
Hey! I take offense to that.


DISSOLVE TO:
INT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT - DAY

Vamp Hallie sits in a chair in Hallohan's apartment. A set
of suitcases has been packed. They wait by the door.
Behind Vamp Hallie there is a large gap in the black
curtains, allowing a deadly shaft of sunlight in.
Hallohan, whistling his usual tune, exits the bathroom. He
takes his suit coat from where it sits on a chair and puts it
on.

HALLOHAN
Well, let's get going.

Silence from Hallie. Hallohan bends down and kisses Vamp
Hallie on the cheek, which she permits, barely.

HALLOHAN
Are you okay?
More silence.

HALLOHAN
Hallie, we really don't have time for
any sulking.

Hallohan spots the gap in the black curtains.

HALLOHAN
Dammit, Hallie! You have to be more
careful!

Hallohan starts for the curtains.

HALLOHAN
There can't be a single gap in the
curtains...!

Vamp Hallie runs at Hallohan and shoves him as hard as she
can. Glass SHATTERS as Hallohan goes through the window.
Vamp Hallie dives for cover from the sunlight.


EXT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT BUILDING - DAY

Hallohan hangs outside the window, nine stories up, holding
onto one of the black curtains. Smoke billows from under his
clothes.

HALLOHAN
Hallie... Vuh-Vamp Hallie... please...

The curtain begins to RIP, dropping Hallohan another foot.
Flames ERUPTS all around Hallohan. The curtain TEARS.

HALLOHAN SCREAMS as he falls.
A few stories down, Hallohan COMBUSTS into a ball of flames.


EXT. STREET - DAY

Traffic has stopped as a CROWD stares upward, then, suddenly,
the crowd scatters as a FLAMING pile of ashes STRIKES the
windshield of a car.


INT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT - DAY

Vamp Hallie stands by the window, far enough away to avoid
the sunlight, as she listens to the sounds of CAR HORNS and
SIRENS down below.

Vamp Hallie walks to the closet and opens the door, revealing
Sharon inside.

SHARON
Mission accomplished?

Sharon listens to the COMMOTION outside the shattered window.

SHARON
I'd say so.

VAMP HALLIE
We'd better get out of here.

Sharon and Vamp Hallie start for the front door.

VAMP HALLIE
What SP did you replace his cream
with?

SHARON
I don't know. Fifteen? Like it
matters.


INT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT BUILDING/UNDERGROUND PARKING GARAGE

DING! The light above the elevator blinks on. The door
opens and Sharon and Vamp Hallie, wearing a raincoat draped
over her head, walk quickly to Hallohan's car. Sharon pops
the trunk and Vamp Hallie climbs in. Sharon pauses before
shutting the trunk. She and Vamp Hallie look at each other
for a beat.

VAMP HALLIE
Thelma and Louise had nothing on us.

Sharon smiles, then SHUTS the trunk. She gets into the
driver's seat. Sharon starts up the car and takes a deep
breath.

SHARON
Hang on...

Despite a little gas-brake trouble, Sharon manages to back
the car out. She heads for the garage exit.


EXT. HALLOHAN'S APARTMENT BUILDING - DAY

Sharon pulls the car into the single lane of traffic the cops
have allowed for passing cars. Parked fire-trucks block the
other lanes.
Sharon peers out the window and sees the pile of ashes
formerly known as Hallohan lying scattered over one unlucky
car's windshield.

SHARON
Ugh. Sure hope the trunk is secure.

Sharonsteps on the gas. She turns at the corner. They're
off.
DISSOLVE TO:


INT. JORDAN'S CAR - NIGHT

Jordan drives along a dark road. The RADIO plays a tune,
low. There are no other cars around. A beer bottle rests in
Jordan's hand.

JORDAN
Here's to you, Dad.
A tear trickles down his cheek. Jordan puts the bottle to
his mouth and drinks.

JORDAN
(to himself)
I was in a coma, too. I know you'll
come out of it soon. Until then, I
swear I won't stop looking until I
find this Gordon.

Suddenly, the RADIO CRACKLES, then dies. A moment after
that, the car ENGINE DIES and the headlights wink out.


EXT. ROAD - NIGHT

Jordan's car coasts to a gradual stop. Several beats as
Jordan just sits in the car, then, he opens the door and
climbs out. He walks to the front of the car and is about to
pop the trunk when a horrendously bright light washes down on
Jordan and his car, encircling them. Jordan tries to look up
at the source of the light, but even shielding his eyes with
his arm doesn't help.
Then, Jordan's car, Red, slowly begins to lift up off the
ground. It takes Jordan a second to realize what's going on,
but when he does he leaps on top of Red's hood.

JORDAN
Hey!

Despite Jordan's added weight, the bright light from above
has no trouble lifting Red and Jordan up into the air.
Red, with Jordan on its roof, ascend into the center of the
bright light. Soon, they disappear within it.
The light ceases as quickly as it began. Beat. The night is
quiet. Farther away, a shooting star streaks through the
black sky.
