Fade In:

Obsession Help Camp: The Tarantino Obsessed

"I couldn't spell anything. I couldn't remember anything, but I could go to a movie and I knew who starred in it, who directed it, everything." - Quentin Tarantino

Int. Waiting Room - Morning

The scene opens with 7 people sitting in a row on chairs, all of them are obsessed with Quentin Tarantino. They are all in suits with different colored ties with each tie representing each movie. One is Pink for "Reservoir Dogs", one is Gold for "Pulp Fiction", one is Blue for "Jackie Brown", one is Yellow for "Kill Bill 1&2", one is Black for "Death Proof", one is Red for "Inglourious Basterds" and the final one is Brown for "Django Unchained". All of them are holding the films that there ties represent. They don't know each other but they are all there for the same reason, while sitting they try to talk with each other (they decide to go by color for names). They are watching the ad from before on the TV, the boy in the Pink tie turns to the Gold tie boy

PINK TIE

What are you here for?

GOLD TIE

My parents think I have a problem

PINK TIE

Same here. I can't quite figure out why

Pink then looks down and sees Gold holding a DVD of "Pulp Fiction".

PINK TIE

I see you're a fan of Pulp Fiction, that's probably my 2nd favorite Tarantino film

GOLD TIE

What's your first?

Pink then holds up a DVD of "Reservoir Dogs"

PINK TIE

Reservoir Dogs! It's his first and his greatest film

...

GOLD TIE

I don't think I'm going to like you

Pink sits back disappointed, at this point two men come out in the typical camper style clothing. One of them is holding a plastic box

RANGER #1

Hello my young happy campers

None of them respond and look at him in an annoyed way

RANGER #1

OK then, so my name is James and next to me is my fellow co-worker Adam

Adam waves slightly

ADAM

Hello, so basically we run Obsession Help Camp which is a small camp...thing where we help you get over any big obsessions you have

JAMES

Thanks Adam, so we've been told by your parents that the main problem with all of you is your obsession with Quentin Tarantino is this correct?

All suddenly become interested and nod their heads, Adam then leans over to James

ADAM

That would explain the suits...and ties

JAMES

And the DVD's of the films they are holding

Adam looks down and sees the DVD's in their hands

ADAM

Yes, that also explains that

JAMES

So guys the first rule of this camp is we must get rid of what we hold dear, so if you could please put all of those DVD's into this box please

Everyone groans but does what they are told, most of them hesitate at putting them in at first. When "Yellow" puts in her DVD of Kill Bill she begins to mildly cry, after a while all the DVD's are put into the box and the lid to the box is shut

JAMES

OK great, now I will hold onto these for the 3 days that we'll be on this camp. Any questions?

All of them hesitate to ask anything, after 4 seconds "Red" puts up his hand

JAMES

Yes you with the red tie

Red proceeds to stand up

RED TIE

So when do we get to kill some Nazi's on this camp?

Everyone is silent and the rangers look at him in mild shock

ADAM

Could you care to repeat that please?

RED TIE

I said when do we get to start killing Nazi's?

ADAM

We don't kill any Nazi's on this trip, why would we kill Nazi...there aren't even any Nazi's here

JAMES

So I guess to answer your question, no we don't kill Nazi's on this trip. Sit back down

Red tie proceeds to sit back down

JAMES

Any other questions?

Yellow puts up her hand and stands up to ask her question like Red Tie did

YELLOW TIE

When can I find the "Deadly Viper's" and teach them a lesson for almost killing me at my wedding?

JAMES

Hang on? You got shot at your...oh hold on there, I'm guessing you like that "Kill Bill" movie don't you?

YELLOW TIE

Well actually there's two films but they're both...

JAMES

Yeah I don't really care, just sit down

Yellow sits down disappointed that her question didn't get answered

ADAM

Now what we do care about is if we can solve your addiction problem, now do you think we can?

Nobody responds

JAMES

I think we can!

ADAM

See that's the spirit, who's with us?

Nobody responds, again

JAMES

Well you know what, let's just get on the bus and have the best 3 days we can!

Everyone gets up in an annoyed and walks to door, the song "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood by Santa Esmeralda" starts playing as the title sequence starts before fading to black.

Ext. Forest - Morning (Around 11am)

Everyone is standing in a circle facing each other, all the campers are giving each other death stares while the rangers give weird looks to each other

JAMES

So before we go any further I want us all to do a small bonding activity, it's nothing to big but I'd like us all to say our names

PINK TIE

I don't think we should go by names

JAMES

Oh I'm dying to know why

PINK TIE

I don't think it's good for us to have any emotional attachment

JAMES

But half the point of this is to make friends, so I think that names are a good start

PINK TIE

But what happens when one of us gets shot or something?

JAMES

Nobody is going to get shot, this isn't a Tarantino film

BLACK TIE

If it was it would be more entertaining

ADAM

You shut your mouth, tell you what since you're all so protective about who you are for now we'll go by...?

PINK TIE

Color?

JAMES

No we shouldn't go by...screw it let's just get this over with. Fine then, I guess you'll all go by...the color of your ties then deal?

Everyone seems positive about the idea and nods except for Pink

PINK TIE

But that means that I'm Mr. Pink

ADAM

Well first we didn't agree on having Mr. in front of our color and second you have a pink tie on so what's the big deal?

PINK TIE

Well Pink is to close to fag or something

JAMES

OK another camp rule, no swearing allowed

Everyone groans

BLUE TIE

But swearing is part of who we are

BROWN TIE

Yeah you can't fucking change that about us

JAMES

That's where you're wrong, it's not part of who you are is part of your obsession and seriously you guys are like probably 16 and look at the mouths on you

GOLD TIE

Look I think I have a solution that's perfect for all of us, one swear word a day for each of us and that's it

ADAM

Fine, but I don't want to hear anybody saying that horrible "N word"

Everyone groans again with disappointment

BROWN TIE

So to clarify you don't want anybody to say ni...

JAMES

Yes that's what we mean, you are now only allowed to say one swear word a day each but the "N word" is terminated from any use by anybody understand?

Everyone nods in disappointment

ADAM

OK good, then let's get going campers and have some fun yeah?

ALL TIES

Yeah (say with no enthusiasm)

JAMES

Loving the enthusiasm, alright then let's go

Everyone starts walking towards the selected campsite

Ext. Forest - Morning

Everyone is walking to the campsite and Pink and Gold are having a conversation

PINK TIE

Look it's very simple, "Like a Virgin" is all about a girl who digs a guy with a big dick. I should know I've done so much research on it

GOLD TIE

I already know that pink, can we talk about something else like robberies or something?

Adam then walks up to them to check how they're doing

ADAM

What are we talking about back here guys?

PINK TIE

School and...stuff

Adam pats them both on the back and returns to the front with James, Pink and Gold continue the conversation

PINK TIE

I mean sure we can talk about robberies but what robberies can we talk about?

While Pink and Gold continue the conversation, Blue and Black are having a conversation of their own

BLACK TIE

No I had a car but my parents took it away

BLUE TIE

Why? Was it because they didn't like you picking up strangers in it too much or something?

BLACK TIE

Well that was half the reason, the other reason was they didn't like how I tried to paint a skull on the front of the car

BLUE TIE

I see, you weren't planning on killing anyone in that car like in "Death Proof" right?

BLACK TIE

No of course not

BLUE TIE

Shame, that would of made you cooler

Blue walks away from Black who has a shocked look on his face

Ext. Forest - Afternoon

Everyone is at the camp site and all the campers are putting the tents up with the rangers just watching

JAMES

So what do you think about these guys?

ADAM

Well all of their obsessions with this director are pretty big

JAMES

I'll say, it's like this dude is their lives and from what I can tell most of his films are rated R so how they're watching them is beyond me

Adam nods at this

ADAM

So how do you think we can help them with this problem?

JAMES

I don't know, but I do know it's going to take a while

ADAM

I know, have you seen any of that guys films?

JAMES

I saw half of one but I did research on him before this

ADAM

Smart thinking, well I think I have a few ideas about what we can do

Ext. Campsite - Forest - Afternoon

Everyone is standing in a circle once again with all of the tents up in the background, the rangers are in the middle of this circle

ADAM

OK guys nice work with the tents, so our first proper activity I think should be decided by you guys

JAMES

Are you sure that's a good idea?

ADAM

Trust me I know what I'm doing, so what would you guys like to do as an activity to get to know each other?

Red puts up his hand straight away

ADAM

No we are not going to kill any Nazi's

Red puts his hand back down, Yellow puts up her hand

ADAM

We're not going to find some group and kill them either

Yellow puts her hand back down, Gold then puts up his hand

JAMES

Yes uh...gold is it?

Gold nods

JAMES

Anyway what's your suggestion?

GOLD TIE

I was thinking maybe we could have a dancing competition

Everyone seems mildly positive about the idea

ADAM

That sounds like a good idea

JAMES

Um Adam I don't think that's...

ADAM

James trust me, I know what I'm doing. OK then I guess everyone grab a partner

Everyone goes to grab a partner and proceed to stand across from each other, James looks worried as he sees what's going to happen

JAMES

OK I guess the idea is fine, just don't let them...

ADAM

Does anyone have any song requests?

JAMES

Great now you've done it

Gold then turns to Adam holding a USB in his hand

GOLD TIE

Play the first song on this USB

Gold throws it to Adam who is setting up a computer to play the music, Adam turns and catches the USB. He puts it in the computer and finds the folder it's in

ADAM

Alright guys are you ready? Let's do this

Adam selects the song and "You Never Can Tell by Chuck Berry" starts playing, everybody twists with their partner while Adam stands there proud of himself. James then goes up to Adam to correct him on his mistake

JAMES

You don't realize what you've done have you?

ADAM

What are you talking about? Everybody's getting along just fine...hold on this is Tarantino related isn't it?

JAMES

You think?

ADAM

Which one?

JAMES

I think this is Pulp Fiction

ADAM

Well this is going to take longer than expected

JAMES

Don't worry we'll let them have this one, but tomorrow I have something up my sleeve

Ext. Campsite - Forest - Morning

A bit of text comes up that says "Day Two", the rangers walk to the tents knocking on them telling them all to wake up. All the campers walk out of the tents (already in suits) tired and annoyed, they form a circle with the rangers.

JAMES

Good morning everyone! Now we understand that you go home tomorrow so today we wanted to start nice and early so we can try and cure the problem as fast as we can

ADAM

Now something I like to do every morning is go for a nice jog, so I want everyone to go for a small jog then come back ready for the rest of the day!

Everyone groans and begins to jog into the distance, Adam and James then start talking once they are far away enough

JAMES

Want to get out of here for a little while?

ADAM

You just read my mind

The two of them begin to walk away

Ext. Forest - Morning

Everyone is still jogging and in the background "Midnight Confession by The Grass Roots" is playing as they run, they all look annoyed but slightly enjoying the run

Ext. Campsite - Forest - Morning

Everyone returns from the run and sees a table with some food on it, a note is in the middle of the table. Blue picks it up and reads it

BLUE TIE

(Reading) Dear Campers, we had to report to business elsewhere in the forest. We understand it's risky to leave you alone but it was urgent, we figured you could stay busy while we're gone by preparing some food to eat for lunch and dinner. Please do try to have fun and remember no swearing, we know it's tempting now but do try. James and Adam.

BROWN TIE

What does the note say?

BLUE TIE

Basically those Basterds pissed off and left us to prepare food

YELLOW TIE

How's that going to help us bond and forget Quentin Tarantino?

BLUE TIE

I don't know but it helps somehow I guess

BLACK TIE

Well if those guys are gone I'm fucking swearing, I don't care what happens

BROWN TIE

You and I are now on the same fucking page buddy

Brown puts his arm around Black, Black shrugs him off and gives him a death stare

PINK TIE

So what now? Do we just prepare food for god knows how many hours?

BLUE TIE

That seems to be the situation

GOLD TIE

God I hate this place

Ext. Campsite - Forest - Early Afternoon

Everyone is at the table preparing the food as told, all of them look bored and have a facial expression that shows they don't want to be there

RED TIE

Man this sucks, when are we going to do something that's fucking exciting? Like...

BLACK TIE

OK even to me that whole killing Nazi's thing is getting annoying

RED TIE

Well for your information maybe I wasn't going to say killing Nazi's

BROWN TIE

Well then what were you going to say

Red stops and thinks though a fake thing to say as he was going to say killing Nazi's earlier, he struggles to think of anything after a while and gives up

RED TIE

OK fine I was going to say killing Nazi's

BLACK TIE

God you are predictable, but I see your point this is really fucking boring

GOLD TIE

Well then let's add some spice to the mix

BLUE TIE

What do you mean spice?

Gold taps Pink on the shoulder who is cutting Strawberries

GOLD TIE

Go over to the laptop we used for the dance thing yesterday and plug in my USB

Pink goes over to the laptop which is sitting on one of the ranger's bags, he puts it on the table with the USB still plugged into it. Gold grabs the computer, starts it up and plays the second song he has on it. "Stuck in the Middle with You by Stealers Wheel" starts playing

PINK TIE

Oh my god, this is like my favorite song

The song continues to play and everyone starts to mildly dance to it like Mr. Blonde in "Reservoir Dogs", before the next verse starts Pink does a swing and gets so into it he throws his knife out of his hand by accident. The knife accidentally stabs Blue in the heart, she stands there in shock and begins to drop on the ground. The song is stopped on the computer by Gold

BLUE TIE

You could have warned me about that you stupid ni...

Blue then drops to the ground dead, everyone crowds around her body in panic. You see Blue with her eyes shut and the handle of a knife sticking out with blood around it

BLACK TIE

Fuck

PINK TIE

I swear I didn't mean to, it just slipped out of my hand

RED TIE

Right into Blue's heart is appears

Everyone moves away from the body and begins to panic

GOLD TIE

Does anybody know what we should do?

Nobody answers as none of them know what to do

YELLOW TIE

This is starting to feel like an actual Tarantino film

Gold then looks up as if he has an idea

GOLD TIE

I've got it, this is like "The Bonnie Situation"

BLACK TIE

What do you mean? Nobody's been shot in the head

GOLD TIE

Well maybe not like that, but we have a dead body and we need to dispose of it

PINK TIE

You can't be serious right now

GOLD TIE

I'm dead serious, we need to get rid of the body right now. Does anybody have any like garbage bags or something?

BROWN TIE

I have some garbage bags

GOLD TIE

Get one, I know exactly what to do with this body

Ext. Campsite - Forest - Afternoon

A bit of text comes up that says "1 Hour Later", Gold returns carrying the bag with his shirt covered in blood. He dumps the bag on the ground and everyone crowds around it, the garbage bag has Blue's tie tied around it

PINK TIE

So your big plan was to chop up the body and dump it in a garbage bag?

GOLD TIE

Yep, pretty smart right?

PINK TIE

I guess it's a good idea if you're a fucking idiot

BLACK TIE

Well I guess this is the best we have, what now?

Gold looks up confused

GOLD TIE

I don't know, but we need to do something

Red then goes to the garbage bag, picks it up and then throws it away from them. You see the bag land in the grass in the distance

RED TIE

There, problem solved

PINK TIE

Sure everything seems to be problem solved, but how are we going to explain all of this to James and Adam?

GOLD TIE

Don't worry I thought of that while disposing of Blue, we just need to not mention her at all and if questions are asked say she ran away

Pink thinks about this for a minute

PINK TIE

I guess it's the best we have, let's just go with it

Everyone nods and goes back to the tents, "Too Old to Die Young by Brother Dege" starts playing. With the song still playing in the background we see a montage of everyone collecting wood and various things for the campfire, everyone has a worried look on their face.

Ext. Campsite - Forest - Late Afternoon

Everybody is outside sitting around a campfire having finished dinner, everyone is still in shock about what happened but they are trying to calm down. James and Adam then come back with the usual cheery grins on their faces

JAMES

Hey campers!

Everybody slightly waves but still looks sad

ADAM

Still loving the enthusiasm guys

Adam and James sit down with everyone, James then sees Gold's shirt is bright red as Gold forgot to take off the blood stained shirt

JAMES

Gold?

Gold looks up at James

GOLD TIE

Yeah?

JAMES

Why is your shirt bright red?

Gold looks down and is now shocked and scared about what's about to happen

GOLD TIE

I don't know what you're talking about

Adam looks at him with suspicion

ADAM

Also where has Blue gone?

GOLD TIE

Blue...ran away

James and Adam look at him in disbelief

JAMES

She ran away?

GOLD TIE

Yeah pretty much

ADAM

Why would she do that?

YELOW TIE

I think it was because...

ADAM

Can it Kill Bill, I'm talking to Gold right now

JAMES

Gold I'm going to ask you one more time, where...is...blue?

Everybody looks around suspiciously while James and Adam just stare at Gold as he continues to look nervous, after a while Pink finally caves in and stands up angrily

PINK TIE

I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!

Everyone looks at Pink

JAMES

What is it?

PINK TIE

Blue...is dead

James and Adam look at him in shock

ADAM

What?! How did this happen?!

PINK TIE

We were all dancing and I got...to into this move I was doing, and I was holding a knife so when I did the move I let go of it and it went straight through Blue's heart which...killed her

James and Adam listen to this in complete shock

PINK TIE

Gold cut up the body, put it in a garbage bag and Red tossed it somewhere into the woods. But at least nobody's ear was cut off right?

Pink slightly laughs while everyone stares at him

JAMES

Well this is very serious, not only have you committed murder but you also chopped up a corpse and threw it in the forest. Don't you guys realize the consequences of this?

Everyone nods in a very upset way

ADAM

Well I'm very sorry to have to do this children, but unfortunately we will have to call the police and have them...

Adam is the stabbed in the heart from a sudden knife and he drops on the ground dead, James jumps back in shock

JAMES

JESUS CHRIST! WHAT THE...

James is then stabbed in the heart as well from a sudden knife and he drops to the ground dead, everybody looks over at Red who had thrown the knives

BROWN TIE

Jesus Red, what have you done?!

RED TIE

In no way am I going to jail and I know you're all thinking the same thing

Everyone is still in shock from what happened but slightly agree

PINK TIE

That doesn't mean you kill two innocent people!

RED TIE

Look it's either this or a lifetime in prison, now we know what we have to do now right?

Everyone nods scared to say anything against him

Ext. Campsite - Forest - Early Morning

Everybody is sitting outside of the tents with Gold having two garbage bags next to him, they are watching the sunrise thinking about their next move

YELLOW TIE

Is this really how we're going to spend the rest of our lives, murdering people by "accident" then covering up the tracks?

Everybody looks at Yellow agreeing that what she's saying has a good point

YELLOW TIE

Now I don't know about you guys but this trip has been a really big eye opener for me, I know that I love Quentin Tarantino so much but I don't know if I want to live in the same lifestyle that his films have. I just want to go home and try to put my life together

BLACK TIE

I know how you feel, I put so much of my life into "Death Proof" that I was really just wasting my life. I'm falling behind on grades, I don't even have a social life and I'm in this huge argument with my parents. Right now I just want my old life back before all of...this gets any worse.

BROWN TIE

Back when everything was normal and not just watching some movie character shoot people

RED TIE

Before I spent every day of my life watching hunters kill Nazi's

GOLD TIE

Before I devoted half of my money to finding a "Bad Mother Fucker" wallet instead of buying what I needed

Pink then stands up and everyone looks at him

PINK TIE

Do you know what I think? I think that this camp really has shown us the bad side of our problem. I think that the purpose of the camp actually worked

Everyone slightly agrees with what Pink is saying

RED TIE

So, what's the plan now?

GOLD TIE

I'm thinking we go to the bus, go to our homes and we don't tell anybody about this. What happened here is a secret between me and all of you, nobody else needs to know deal?

Everyone thinks about this for a moment

BLACK TIE

I think I can live with that

GOLD TIE

OK good, come on let's pack up and get our asses out of here

Everybody packs up the tents and their things, once everybody is ready they begin to walk in the direction they came from. Along the way Red and Black toss the two garbage bags into the distance

Ext. Parking Lot - Outside of Forest - Morning

The bus is sitting there waiting for everybody to arrive, everyone that is left arrives at the bus and starts to get on it. Pink stops Gold as he is about to get on the bus

PINK TIE

Gold can I talk to you for a second?

Gold goes with Pink to a corner where they won't be heard by the others

PINK TIE

Are you sure nobody else is going to find out about this?

GOLD TIE

I don't really know, but I guess we'll have to face whatever comes together

PINK TIE

I guess so, so what happens now between you and me?

GOLD TIE

I'll say this, remember when we first met and I said I wasn't going to like you

Pink slowly remembers the first day, he remembers what Gold said then comes back to reality

PINK TIE

Yeah why?

GOLD TIE

Well...things change, now come on we need to go home

Pink smiles at Gold and gets on the bus, at this point "Down in Mexico" by The Coasters starts playing.

Int. Bus - Morning

Once Pink is on the bus the driver stops him

BUS DRIVER

Hang on there mate, weren't there more of you?

PINK TIE

No, it's just us

BUS DRIVER

Are you sure?

PINK TIE

Yes I'm certain

The driver thinks about it for a second

BUS DRIVER

All right then mate, whatever you say

Pink goes further into the bus with the driver looking at him

Ext. Parking Lot - Outside of Forest - Morning

The bus drives away with the song still playing and the credits roll

Author's Message

This is the 2nd short film script I've written, it was written back in 2014 and I'm pretty proud of it. I have a mild obsession with Tarantino myself and wanted to make a script about it that one day I hope becomes a film :). If you intend on adapting this into a film please make sure to message me first so I can give full permission P.S - This can be done on stage but it's better as a short film
