GOTHAM SCRIPT EXCERPTS (SPOILERS)

GOTHAM

INT: KITCHEN FREEZER

There is frost everywhere. A lot of icicles. A bizarre amount of icicles. They’re hanging off the tips of boxes, and off of the meats, and off of the counter tops. GORDON shivers. BULLOCK does not shiver, because he’s tipsy. Close up on Bullock taking a swig out of his flask. It is FILLED with ALCOHOL.

At the back of the freezer, leaning comfortably on the racks of FROZEN SHIT, is VICTOR FRIES, an expert on the science of ICE. He is tall, thin and pale. He is drinking something clear, so that you can see the ICE CUBES that he drops in them. Close up on the ICE CUBES.

GORDON

(still shivering)

A little chilly in here.

FRIES

(not shivering AT ALL.)

I find it quite pleasant.

BULLOCK

(four beer drunk)

Whatever, Fries. Just tell us what you know about the missing diamonds.

FRIES

Please, detectives. Chill.

BULLOCK

Whatever, Mr. Ice.

Fries glances at him angrily, like a future murderer would.

FRIES

It’s Mr. Fries. Fries.

Gordon shivers, and looks troubled.

CUT TO BLACK

EXT. UNDER BLEACHERS AT HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL FIELD

Overhead pan of the city. (X2)

Large teenage guy pulls up his sleeve, and takes a needle out of his pocket. He injects himself in the bicep with a liquid and his veins swell up. He looks relieved.

JERVIS (OS)

Hey man! What are you doing?

The large teen does not look surprised, like a future murderer. He throws the needle into a nearby trashcan. JERVIS approaches. He is small, and pale.

LARGE TEEN

None of your business, Jervis. Tell anyone, and I break you.

JERVIS

But that stuff is illegal! The principal would take your head off if she knew!

The large teen walks away, towards the football field. He picks his helmet up from off the ground, and then turns back to Jervis.

LARGE TEEN

Don’t you have some tea to drink, weirdo?

Jervis looks sad, like a future murderer would. High school is TOUGH.

CUT TO BLACK

INT: GOTHAM POLICE DEPARTMENT.

GORDON sits at his desk. He looks painfully conflicted.

CUT TO:

EXT: PATCH OF CORN

A skinny, pale sixth grader looks up at a SCARECROW.

SKINNY SIXTH GRADER

(grinning)

Sweet.

FADE TO BLACK.

  1. I like it. You could do a bunch of these, like basic bread, cake, or cookie recipes to which you just toss in a couple of extra ingredients to customize.

    Horror film script: A crow lands on the ‘crow.
    Sci-Fi script: A glow flows from the ‘crow.
    (Murder mystery script: A blow falls from the ‘crow? Or is that striking too low?)
