a very short film script based on a joke.
- Lollie and Hamid - middle aged couple
- Bank Teller
- Random Hostage
- Man in Bank Queue
exterior day urban bank
Lollie and Hamid arrive outside a bank - they are a married couple with the usual relationship. They move inside to join the queue for a teller. Man in front of them pulls a nylon stocking onto his head and takes out a sawn-off shotgun.
Robber: (to bank teller) Stick em up!
Teller: (shocked) Oh gosh
Robber: (To all present) Everybody down! Put all your money in this bag. Anybody moves and I shoot. You all keep still and nobody gets hurt.
Robber: (to random hostage) Did you move?
Victim: Just a bit
Gunshot audible (Robber shoots victim off-screen)
(pause) movement audible
Robber: (To Hamid) Did you move then, fella?
Hamid: No, but my wife did.
