Script

Dawn and Ian are sitting with their new sibling they have just met this is a follow up from Learning The Language Ian looks nervous.

Dawn:

Are you hungry Jonti?

Jonti:

A bit

Dawn:

Well here you go

Dawn hands some bread to Jonti then pats the top of the camera like it's a pet dog

Good boy

Sibling:

So Dawn, what do you do back home?

Dawn:

I'm a care assistant

Sibling:

You care for people?

Dawn:

Yes, and I'm very good at it thank you very much.

Sibling:

(To Ian in foreign language, subtitles at bottom of screen) This woman is surely stupid Ian, she cannot even speak my language unlike you. she cares for people? Can you imagine it. (Big hearty laugh) I know she is our sister but she is not like us, strong and intelligent!

Ian:

(In Siblings language) yes , (Ian mumbles and makes gestures with his hands)

Dawn looks on, she is not happy

Sibling:

(To Ian in foreign language subtitles at bottom of screen) Yes, yes I agree Ian, we will take Dawn back to her room later and we brothers will go out and party! Lets kill some time and find some women.

Ian knods and grins not knowing what he is talking about.

I go to bathroom and freshen up.

Sibling leaves the table

Dawn is chewing the side of her mouth and looking annoyed

Ian:

Dawn?

Dawn:

What!

Ian:

He seems nice

Dawn:

Hmm, but can I just say one thing Ian. Where on earth,.. are your manners? It's very rude to talk in front of people in a different language, it's as bad as whispering. ….Anyway what was he saying?

Ian:

I don't know

Dawn:

You don't? You were jabbering away with him there deep in conversation (Dawn mimics the language using her hands as puppets)
Ian:

I only learnt one phrase [in fluent foreign language, said fast, subtitles at bottom of screen, these should flash on as Ian is speaking fast] Your Dad's not your Dad. Your Dad's a sperm donor and I'm your brother and Dawn is your sister….oh and "yes"

Dawn:

No?

Ian:

[in foreign language] yes [subtitles yes]

Dawn:

I wonder what he was saying then?

Jonti:

I know. He said he wants to get Dawn out of the way then go out with Ian and kill women.

Ian and Dawn are both shocked

Dawn:

Come on Ian lets go!

Ian and Dawn get up and dash off the camera is still filming the table, Ian comes back in shot and picks up his tin looks to camera.

Ian:

Come on Jonti! Quick!

CUT TO

Ian and Dawn are standing on the streets talking to Jonti they are both breathless the resturant is in the background.

Dawn:

You know when you see someone and you know

Jonti:

Know what?

Dawn:

[Catches her breath] You just know

Jonti:

hmm

Dawn:

I just didn't like him, he had an aura of "I'm a killer" you could see it in his eyes, [Pulls a mad face] and to talk about it so openly in a crowded resturant of all places. What goes on in the mind of these people?

Jonti:

So what did you think of him Ian?

Ian:

[upbeat but breathless, Ian is holding his knees] Actualy I thought he was quite n- [ looks up and see's Dawns eyes staring at him] erm..nasty, nasty evil man.

Jonti:

Will you try and contact him again?

Dawn:

Let's just say if we organised a reunion he woul-

in the background we see sibling coming out of resturant shouting and waving something in his hand

Sibling

Dawn, Ian! Where are you going!

Dawn:

Quick run , run , He's got a knife!

We still hear sibling shouting

Jonti follows Dawn and Ian as they run in a treasure hunt parody

Dawn:

[To Ian] Stop a cab, stop a cab!

A cab picks them up and they drive of into the distance

we see sibling holding a long thin gift wrapped box (watch), he looks at it sighs then puts it in his inside pocket

FADE OUT
