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!

PARK: Really?
