EXT. FORREST – DAY
Two HIKERS with heavy packs struggle up a hill.
HIKER #1: It is so great to get away.
HIKER #2: Tell me about it. I come up here all the time. The cave we’re camping in is just over this way.
HIKER #1: Did I tell you my dog ran off?
HIKER #2: Ah, man. I loved that dog. Took him camping up here all the time.
HIKER #1: Really? My dog?
HIKER #2: Yeah. You knew that.
HIKER #1: No.
HIKER #2 Oh. Well, we’ll miss him.
HIKER #1: Yeah. At least my brother’s not around. He’d of blamed me. We’d of fought over it. But I haven’t heard from him in a long time.
HIKER #2: I liked your brother a lot. Good guy. Took him camping up here all the time.
HIKER #1: You know my brother?
HIKER #2: Yeah. You knew that.
HIKER #1: No. Did you guys talk about me?
HIKER #2: Oh, I couldn’t tell you what we said up here. In the woods. No more than I’d tell somebody else what you and I talk about.
HIKER #1: I guess so. That’s cool. I’m sorry. Just still not myself since my girlfriend left me. She won’t even return my calls.
HIKER #2: Well, you know how she is. Once she makes up her mind, watch out.
HIKER #1: How do you know my girlfriend?
HIKER #2 Ex-girlfriend.
HIKER #1: Right.
HIKER #2: You know, she loved camping.
HIKER #1: I didn’t know that.
HIKER #2: Loved it. Well. They come and go, right? Women.
HIKER #1: Yeah. That’s true. Did she say anything about me?
HIKER #2: Sorry. I couldn’t. HIKER #1: Right. Right. Forget it. It’s just nice to be outdoors. My parents took me camping a lot as a kid.
HIKER #2: Nice folks.
HIKER #1: Who?
HIKER #2: Your parents.
HIKER #1: Where did you meet my parents?
HIKER #2 Camping store.
HIKER #1: Oh.
HIKER #2: Here we are. In you go. They are at the mouth of a cave.
HIKER #1: Please. You’ve met so many people in my life. They must say something about me.
HIKER #2: I shouldn’t. It’s wrong.
HIKER #1: Come on. Please . . ?
HIKER #2: Alright. They all agreed on one thing.
HIKER #1: What do they say?
HIKER #2: Awfully sweet. Awfully dumb. Hiker #1 laughs and goes first into the cave.
HIKER #1: That sounds like something they would say.
Hiker #2 pulls a big knife from his belt and follows him.
HIKER #2: Yeah. Nice folks.
Hiker #1 dies screaming, off screen.
