Episode 1

Int: The Intensifying Heart Club, at a table in the VIP section

DADDY, ANGÉL GABRIÉL and SALINA are seated at the table, eating luxurious jumbo shrimps and lobsters.

DADDY

Well, then. Shall we just wait for FRANK before we order dessert?

 

SALINA

Sir… I’ve been wanting to say something for a while. Why… Why aren’t we trying to reaquire our pristine baybee? Isn’t that important at all to FRANK? I don’t know why I should have to lend him my body all the time. I know we messed up, but that isn’t the baybee’s fault. I kind of miss it…

 

ANGÉL

Sweet heart, what did we say about questioning FRANK?

Chapter 25

Good evening, learners! This time, we will be taking a look at the very beginning of “Intensifying Hearts & Dreams” – the first memo where mr. Dalgren of the BOF made the proposal to go ahead with the series! Mr. D’Annunzio’s original synopsis is enclosed, and by comparing it to the final form of the story, you will be able to ascertain for yourselves how worrisome and wrong things can become if you let thoughts and ideas roam about unsupervised.

Yours sincerely,

The Department of Godliness and Order in Media

Int: Doomtown Luxury Towers, NICKY’s apartment

NICKY is pacing around the luxurious rooms, getting ready for a productive day of thoroughly nasty scheming. The kidnapped baybee lies on its back, being changed, powdered and having make-up applied by an advanced NannyBot™.

NICKY

Sweet baybee… Today will be the beginning of the end for your father’s employer. My ambitions are reaching their boiling point. My final victory is nearing.

Int: The Futureshop, surreal chamber

In the depths of The Futureshop, we find ourselves in a dark chamber full of frayed electrical wires that glitter, self-playing pianos that stutter, dark statues of unknown animals that could be confused for horses or squids, shelves with piles of burning reading glasses, and similar obscure memorabilia from another world. We find DUKE sitting on his thone-like chair/chair-like throne (think of the one from Game of Thrones, but with wood and electronica rather than swords). He is speaking to a SLAVE chained to the floor. The SLAVE is facing away from DUKE.

DUKE

See all this, SLAVE. See this town into which we have dug from unknowable tunnels. They know us not but we are here all the same.

Ext: hill at the edge of Doomtown

Sunset. Two MYSTERY MASKS are sitting next to each other, looking serenely at the town during a break in their duties.

MYSTERY MASK NO. 28B

Man oh man… It’s getting crazier and crazier up in here. As if the whole mess surrounding FRANK‘s funeral wasn’t enough, with the drunken fist fight that erupted at the reception between THE MAYOR and ANGÉL GABRIÉL… Now we got ghost trees and weird-ass pianos popping into existence all over the place?

Int: Location unknown, Pastor Jing’s auditing chamber

MARCIA is sitting despondently on the edge of a divan. Long time no see, MARCIA! She seems as scattered as ever, and is nervously looking around the small room, waiting for someone. There is a chair for a practitioner to sit in as well as a small table with a glass of water and an e-meter. MARCIA jumps, startled, when PASTOR JING suddenly enters. The PASTOR strides purposefully over to his chair, all the while scanning a folder held in his hand. He addresses his patient nonchalantly, without meeting her pleading gaze.

PASTOR JING

Right, MARCIA WILKINSON. You are troubled by memories of trauma sustained at the Gastronomy Institute and have been under the wicked influence of psychiatry. Is that correct?

Int: the Intensifying Heart Club, wine lounge

DADDY, DR. ADAMSON and POLLYANNA are seated at a small table, sipping from glasses of expensive red wine. The table is covered by pieces of money and scattered paperwork.

DR. ADAMSON

So let’s run through this one more time. The Club is losing business, we’ve lost what little influence we had at the Committee, and now you’ve recieved an e-mail from FRANK. Is that the gist of it?
