(Night scene. Camera starts at level with pavement of the street, instrumental of "It Was a Good Day" by Ice Cube playing in the background. Music gets louder as camera begins to pan out and up, lighting by streetlights. Wide pan shows the dark entrance to a public park, camera begins to follow driveway into the park, as we approach the parking lot, the music fades to the background and the voices of our characters begins to rise and be heard. Camera finally reaches the parking lot with a group of cars parked in a circle and a dozen guys hanging out around them. Camera zooms to a conversation between KB and CHILI)
You put the weed in your ass???!!
Chilly chill man... chilly chill. There were cops there
No excuse, how you take the weed and hide it in your ass? Never heard of pockets?
(Camera does a quick 180 and zooms on another conversation. B and WIG outside the car, MAGIC is driving and PNUT is sitting shotgun)
Dude get out, I'm riding shotgun
Shut up, get in the back.
Seriously man, don't make me hurt you
You try to even touch me I'll spit on you
You'll spit? Spit? That all you've got?
Shutup shutupshutup... listen to this shit. Greatest song ever!
(MAGIC turns up the stereo in the car and we begin to hear Detroit Grand Pubahs "Sandwiches" WIG begins to dance while holding a beer and a joint)
That's my jam. That's my jam!!
Fuck it, get out.
(B reaches for the door handle, PNUT spits on him)
What. The. Fuck. You spit on me!
I told you I w..
YOU FIGHT LIKE A CAMEL!
One hump or two?
(MAGIC breaks out into laughter. so hard that he opens his car door and rolls out, camera continues to spin around and lands on random people in the group)
Tandoori chicken pizza, man! Now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout.
Where's the rest of the stash?
Who's got cups? Somebody grab some ice...
Bad idea man. Tandoori chicken pizza equals craaaazy nightmares
Let's head to Van. Some guys there have a courtesy car, let's shitkick it.
Chills man.... time... on our side...
(Flashing blue and red lights hilight the scene)
Here we go again
Fuckin cops, hide the weed...
(KB looks at CHILI, CHILI smiles, KB grabs the weed from CHILI and hands it to KILLER)
Stash it quick
(The rest of the characters can be seen hiding the alcohol and any other incriminating material. KB quickly drinks the booze he was holding, like it was KoolAid, and throws the empty bottle into his car)
Good evening gentlemen
(All the characters give a nonchalant "hi")
I hope you all saw the sign saying the park is closed at night. What brings you all here against those rules?
Sorry, sir, we didn't see any sign, we can leave right...
And who are you? The speaker for the group? Just stay right there...
(We see more cop cars arriving in the background)
I'm pretty sure that not all of you can claim to have not seen the sign.... what brings you guys here so late in the night anyways?
We were just hanging out
Well gentlemen, we have gotten calls from the neighbourhood complaining of noise coming from this location. And I can smell a certain combination of things in the air.
Does one of them happen to be camel musk?
(COP1 walks up to KB and shines a flashlight in his eyes. KB's eyes are red and glazed over)
And what's your story?
(with a mildly amused grin)
... standing is difficult.
(Rest of groups breaks out in a muffled laughter. More cops arrive on the scene)
Okay, everbody turn around and hands up on the cars.
(Scene turns to slow motion as the cops push the characters against the cars. Start playing the song "I'll Never Do You Wrong" by Joe Tex. Camera slowly turns around and shows cops grabbing the characters and pushing them to the cars and beginning to frisk them. Camera then turns once more and zooms to a Philadelphia Flyers logo. Camera then pans out to reveal AMMO in a hockey jersey his hands behind him as a cop grabs him and begins to move him to a car. AMMO stares directly at the camera)
That's me. The big guy in the hockey jersey. Welcome to my upbringing. The following are stories that would change our lives and mold us into the men we are today. I apologize in advance.
(Camera returns to full speed as AMMO is pushed off screen. Comotion can be heard as the camera pans away from the group and starts moving backwards off the driveway and towards the street. The track "I'll Never Do You Wrong" is sped up and morphs into the track "Snakes" by ODB (start 27 seconds in). Camera makes it back to the street, pans to the right and sees park sign stating "Park closed from dusk to dawn." Camera then slowly moves up to reveal the name of the park: "HAWTHORNE")
