An excerpt …
(a screaming kid is what you need)
RUSTY: (as the doors open and Mrs. Bailey and her daughter Corey enter) Good morning and welcome to the AcmeBuilding! What floor please?
COREY: All of ‘em! I wanna stop on all the floors, Mama.
MRS. BAILEY: Twelfth floor, Dr. Molar’s office.
RUSTY: Ah! Looks like somebody’s going to the dentist!
COREY: (suddenly breaks into screams of panic) Ahhh! Ahhh! Ahhh! Ahhh!
MRS. BAILEY: (as she tries to stifle her spastic child) Oh, please! Did you have to say that? I told her she was going to buy new shoes!
RUSTY: In a dentist’s office?
(a rather strange group)
RUSTY: What floor?
PARK: (looks down at the floor) What floor? Is the floor falling out? I gotta get outa here!
COREY: Is he crazy, Mommy?
MRS. BAILEY: Corey! Be quiet!
RUSTY: What floor do you want, Sir?
PARK: Oh … any of them. Do I have a choice?
RUSTY: The AcmeBuilding as 49 floors.
PARK: Oh, dear. Too many. I can’t decide.
RUSTY: Did you want to go up?
PARK: I don’t know. What’s it like up there?
(of course it gets stuck)
PARK: I think I’m dying. Excuse me a moment. (He/she lies down on the floor) This looks like a nice spot.
RUSTY: You can’t die on my floor!
PARK: You want me to die standing up? (Suddenly all the occupants of the elevator shudder and stagger)
COREY: What was that?
MRS. BAILEY: The elevator stopped moving!
COREY: I didn’t do it, Mommy! I didn’t do it!
MRS. BAILEY: Oh, no! We’re to be at the dentist in three minutes!
COREY: Dentist! Mama, you lied to me! (crying) Ahhh! Ahhh! Ahhh! Ahhh!
RUSTY: (pushing buttons) This is crazy! These things don’t stop like this.
PARK: We’re all going to die.
RUSTY: (still pushing buttons) No, we won’t! I’ll call for help! (takes phone from compartment)
COREY: I saw this in a movie, Mama! Ninja Warriors started dropping through the ceiling tile!
