SCENE 1: LOVING HIS MOM

EXT. ROOFTOP LAUNDRY AREA-AFTERNOON

Teddy looks up to the afternoon sun, wipes his sweat and detergent suds from his arms, he still has tons of laundry to do. He checks for dry laundry from the clothes that were hanging at the clothesline that runs all across the entire apartment rooftop. He went back to washing his laundry. Miguel suddenly shows up.

TEDDY

Miguel? (Surprised)

MIGUEL

(In mocking tone)

My Dear Teddy, did I

spooked you?

TEDDY

What are you doing up here?

(whispers) My mom's downstairs, we

had an agreement.

MIGUEL

What? That I won't show up

unannounced? I'm here to pick up your

mom. We’re going on a date.

TEDDY

Then why are you  up here talking to

me? You should be downstairs with

her. We don't know each other as

far as my mom is concerned. You're

just gonna make her ask more

questions. She’s not stupid you know.

MIGUEL

Dear Teddy why act so innocent? So

what? Isn't that the truth? This

was all your idea. You created me.

This divine situation  is your

immaculate conception. Tell me,

Teddy, I’m not the first guy

you schemed with right?

I can’t speak for them

though, but I’m telling you

right now. I’m really good.

You should give me a try.

Miguel suddenly sings “Something in your eyes” He steps towards Teddy who steps backwards, trapping him by the rooftop wall. The “Kabedon” scene happens. Miguel nails Teddy with his arms extended to the wall, Teddy trapped inside.

MIGUEL (SINGS)

MUSIC CUE: “SOMETHING IN YOUR EYES”

Something in your eyes

Is telling me

That there is something going

What is it?

Just tell me now

(Miguel runs his hands across Teddy’s chest, stopping short right on top of Teddy’s underwear waistband that peeks through his short)

Or I’ll spend the whole night thinking

If there’s really something going

What is it?

Just say it now

You’re making me feel

That something is here

You’re making me think

The feeling is real

Something in your eyes

Is telling me

That there is something going

What is it?

Just tell me now

What is it?

Just tell me now

MIGUEL

Do I need a laundry appointment to

see you? I've been calling you and

you're not answering my calls.

Are you hiding any dirt

besides me? I'm

curious, how does Laundry Teddy

wash his laundry?

TEDDY

I soak the lies with

bleach so it hides the stains.

MIGUEL

I don’t mean the laundry

Teddy, don’t act stupid.

TEDDY

What do you want Miguel?

Miguel starts to sing, “Can you hear my heart?”

MIGUEL (SINGS)

MUSIC CUE: “CAN YOU HEAR MY HEART?”

Can you hear my heart?

It screams your name

In case your deaf

I won’t deny

The lust I feel

When you are near

For me that’s love

Can you hear my heart?

It’s beating through my chest

‘cause you’re right next to me

I won’t deny

The lust I feel

When you are near

For me that’s love

Can you hear my heart

It screams your name

In case your deaf

I won’t deny

The lust I feel

When you are near

For me that’s love

MIGUEL

Good question, what do I want?

TEDDY

I don't have much money today. I

thought what I gave you is enough.

MIGUEL

I want more. That’s I want,

More.

TEDDY

If you want more, you have to wait

until this wet laundry dries up and

I get paid. Maybe by Tuesday,

probably at the end of the week.

MIGUEL

I'm hurt.  You think this is all

about money?  What about my

feelings? Maybe I should just come

clean, Dear pretty Sylvia, guess

what, I think, you're not all that

pretty, but rather, you're a loser.

It takes your son's laundry blood

money to fund what's going on

between us.  Because...guess what

Teddy has to find you a date

because you can't find one yourself.

You can have all the screaming

tweenage friends in the world, but

you'll never be like them. Why?

Because guess what Sylvia,  you're

not like them, you're decades old

TEDDY

Please...Miguel..don't.

MIGUEL

Scared?  (moves his body much closer to

Teddy)

Sylvia, suddenly showed up and hugged Miguel from behind. Miguel released Teddy from his “Kabedon”

SYLVIA

I thought you just left? Sorry, it

took me sometime to find this

skirt. How do I look? (spins

around)

MIGUEL

Like Paris. Eiffel stylish.

SYLVIA

Why are you up here? (To Teddy)

Teddy....this is Miguel, my

boyfriend. I know this may come as

a surprise to you. I'm not blind,

he's younger  than me..but

TEDDY

But you’re beautiful mom, you're

always beautiful.

SYLVIA

(To Miguel)

I told you, my son will like you.

He usually warms up

really quickly. That’s my son.

Miguel eyes Teddy up and down as Teddy quickly hands his mom some cash, she kissed him and waved bye as Miguel gave Teddy an intense stare. Meanwhile, Drew saw everything, he was standing by his room window on another building directly across the laundry roof top building where Teddy's at. Drew had been observing Teddy for some time now. He felt weird, how can he feel something for someone he had never really met? Drew sings “Something in your eyes”

DREW (SINGS)
