            SCENE: BUDS PHOTO SHOOT  

            Bud is getting ready to pose for Annie.

                                BUD	
                      Deena Cassandra Beckworth. That's my
                      name. Cassandra was my grandma. That's
                      how I got that name. And Deena is my
                      mother. I hate it.  I was a tomboy. I
                      like to get dirty and go camping and play
                      sports. We had to go to church on Sundays
                      and I'd have to wear a dress and I hated
                      it. Finally I told my parents that I
                      would only go to church if I could wear
                      pants. It was such a scandal. Deena wants
                      to wear pants to church. Oh my God, how
                      blasphemous.

                                ANNIE	
                      So how did you get the nickname Bud?

                                BUD	
                      From my first and only girlfriend. Danny. 
                      We were together for years.

                                ANNIE	
                      She gave you that name?

                                BUD	
                      Yep, and this scar too. We met on a
                      Friday and she moved in on a Monday. I
                      don't know why we moved in together. I
                      just let her walk all over me and one
                      night we were at this bar and she was
                      having a contest to see who could hold
                      their hand over this match the longest
                      and this drunk gal already had third
                      degree burns, but Danny was ready for
                      more. And I told her to stop and she
                      wouldn't. And I told her again and she
                      just ignored me. And I got so mad at her
                      that I grabbed a bottle and I smashed it
                      n the floor and held it to her neck...and
                      everything stopped.
                      That's what it took to get her to listen.
                      And after that everyone kept calling me
                      Bud cause it was a broken Budweiser
                      bottle I was holding. And after that
                      every time I came to the bar, I'd walk in
                      and they'd say the same thing, "watch
                      out, here comes Bud" or they'd grab my
                      butt and say, "I need a Bud."  Or someone
                      would pick me up and say, "oh it's a Bud
                      lite." And after a while it just stuck.
                      My parents still call me Deena, but
                      everyone else calls me Bud. And that's
                      how I got my nickname. 

                                ANNIE	
                      And is that how you got the scar.  From
                      the bottle.

                                BUD
                      No.

                                ANNIE
                      So how'd you get the scar?
                          (pause)
                      Did Danny give it to you?

                                BUD	
                      I don't want to talk about her any more. 
                      I'm trying to forget about Danny I want
                      to move on, I really do.  But Danny did
                      something to me, she damaged me in a way. 
                      She ruined me for other women. Have you
                      ever met a woman who just captured your
                      heart?

                                ANNIE	
                      Yes I have. Ok. Can you turn to the left? 

            Annie begins photo shoot.  Bud reveals more of her body.

                                ANNIE (cont'd)
                      Just lift your chin a little bit. Little
                      more right, over here. Perfect. Nice.
                      Great. 

                                BUD	
                      So when do I get to see you?

                                ANNIE	
                      Excuse me.

                                BUD	
                      It's not fair. You get to see me. When do
                      I get to see you?  Come on, I know you're
                      not shy.

            SCENE: ANNIES MONOLOGUE TO AUDIENCE

            Annie turns directly to the audience. Bud exits.

                                ANNIE 	
                          (to audience) 
                      This always happens to me.  Everyone
                      wants to have sex with me.  It goes like
                      this.  They meet me, and five minutes
                      later they want me to take them home,
                      strap on a dildo and fuck them. But they
                      don't understand, that's a lot of work.

            SCENE: GLORY CALLS BUD/BUD CALLS DANNY

                                GLORY
                      	(on the phone at work)  
                      Hey Bud, it's Glory.  I guess you're not
                      home or your on the other line.  Did you
                      get my message yesterday?  How did your
                      photo shoot go?  

            Kim enters.

                                KIM

                                GLORY
                      Hey Kim.  

            Bud enters but she is in a different space.

                                BUD
                      Hey Danny are you there?

                                GLORY   
                      I'm still at the restaurant.  But I get
                      out of here around seven.  

                                BUD
                      Well, I guess you're not there.  I was
                      just thinking about you that's all.  I
                      just did a cool photo shoot.  I wanna
                      tell you about it.

                                GLORY  
                      I want to bring you some food.  I made an
                      eggplant pudding that people are going
                      crazy for.

                                BUD
                      You know you can stop by anytime.  i
                      never lock the door.  

                                GLORY  
                      Should I just stop by?

                                BUD
                      I think about you all the time.

                                GLORY  
                      I've been thinking about you all day.

                                BUD
                      Just call me, back?  Okay.

                                GLORY  
                      Call me when you get in.

                                BUD
                      It's still the same number.

                                GLORY  
                      You know the number.

                                BUD
                      Just call me.

                      O.K., Bud.  I'll be waiting...

            She hangs up.

                                BUD
                      Hello?  I think your machine just cut me
                      off.  

                                GLORY
                      I think I'm in love.

                                BUD
                      Am I still being recorded?  

                                KIM
                      With Bud?

                                GLORY
                      Bud.

                                KIM
                      Bud?  Bud, the student?

                                GLORY
                      No, Bud, the person.  She has a beautiful
                      soul, Kim.

                                KIM
                      She's a student.  She's broke.

                                GLORY
                      I don't care about money.  Weren't you a
                      starving student when you met Lois?  Look
                      how great you turned out.

                                KIM
                      Yea, look how great we turned out.

                                GLORY
                      You know, I've been single for so long
                      and I wanted to know why, if I was so
                      willing and so open, why nothing was
                      coming to me.  And I went up to Bernal
                      Hill and I looked out at the City and I
                      meditated on it.  I just sat with it and
                      prayed.  And you know what came to me?
                      Proust!  Proust said, "The real voyage of
                      discovery consists not in seeking new
                      landscapes, but in having new eyes."

                                KIM
                      You read Proust?

                                GLORY
                      No. I read it in Oprah magazine. 

                                KIM
                      You read Oprah Magazine?

                                GLORY
                      I love it.

                                KIM
                      She's on every cover!

                                GLORY
                      That's why it's called Oprah Magazine. 
                      It's very inspiring! You and Lois should
                      get it.

                                KIM
                      Me and Lois should get Playboy.

                                GLORY
                      Oh, you know how Lois feels about
                      pornography?

                                KIM
                      I don't know how Lois feels about
                      anything anymore. 

                                GLORY
                      You know I tried to be in Playboy.  They
                      actually had an open call for models
                      about 15 years ago...down at the Ft.
                      Mason center.  Over 200 girls showed up.
                      I wore my belly dancer outfit, I did my
                      belly dance routine.

            She lifts her arms in the air to indicate.

                                GLORY (cont'd)
                      But they rejected me.  

            Looking at her own armpits.

                                GLORY (cont'd)
                      They said I had to shave my armpits.  Can
                      you believe that?  I was so offended.

            SCENE: BUD AND LOIS AT SCHOOL

            Bud and Lois are sitting on the desk sharing a bag of chips.

                                LOIS	
                      Why would you pose naked in a book that
                      everyone's gonna see?

                                BUD	
                      I just did it for fun.

                                LOIS	
                      It's dangerous.

                                BUD	
                      It's not dangerous.

                                LOIS	
                      Its not dangerous?

                                BUD	
                      How is it dangerous?  It's just a book.

                                LOIS	
                      Bud, do you know who Ted Bundy was?

                                BUD
                      Who?

                                LOIS
                      Ted Bundy?

                                BUD	
                      From Married with Children?

                                LOIS	
                      What?

                                BUD	
                      I'm not sure. Who's Ted Bundy?

                                LOIS	
                      Between the years of 1973 and 1978 Ted
                      Bundy slaughtered over 40 young women.
                      And when he was arrested they searched
                      his house. And in his closet they found
                      piles and piles and piles of porno
                      magazines. He said the images excited him
                      and he wanted to act them out. You're
                      giving them exactly what they want.

                                BUD
                      Who?

                                LOIS
                      Men.

                                BUD
                      What am I giving them?

                                LOIS
                      Permission. Permission to objectify you.
                      What is the message of pornography? Think
                      about it? You're telling them exactly
                      what they want to hear. And when some
                      maniac grabs you late at night and holds
                      you down and rapes you and you cry, "No,"
                      he won't believe you, because deep down,
                      he thinks it what you really want because
                      he saw it in a book. Women like to be
                      treated as sex toys. That's what he
                      learned. Isn't that right, Bud?  Isn't
                      that what you're saying?

                                BUD 	
                      Lois, you hold me down and fuck me.  You
                      make me scream. It turns me on.  So what?

                                LOIS 	
                      Bud, that's different.

                                BUD
                      How is it different?

                                LOIS 
                      I'm your teacher.

            SCENE: THE CAFE

            Kim and Glory are at a table at Glory's cafe.

                                KIM	
                      She doesn't even look at me anymore. It's
                      like she's lost all interest in sex.

                                GLORY	
                      Oh, you and Lois are great together. You
                      have what we all want.  A long term
                      relationship.

                                KIM	
                      Oh please.  We haven't made love in ages.

                                GLORY	
                      Come on.

                                KIM	
                      I am so jealous of fags.  They just go
                      into bushes and get off any time they
                      want.

                                GLORY	
                      That can't be very satisfying.

                                KIM	
                      Are you kidding?  What could be more
                      satisfying?  Sex. Pure unfiltered sex.
                      What's wrong with us? With women?

                                GLORY	
                      First of all, there's a lot more to sex
                      than just getting off. 

                                KIM	
                      Well I'm horny and Lois ain't doing it. I
                      think if I just could have sex on my own
                      things would be a lot better.

                                GLORY	
                      Maybe, you should talk to a therapist.

                                KIM	
                      Fuck that. I'm done talking. That's all
                      women do. Talk. Talk. Talk. I'm sick of
                      processing. I just want to fuck and get
                      fucked pure and simple.  Wham bam thank
                      you ma'am. 

                                GLORY
                      Why don't you place an ad?

                      How would that work?

                                GLORY	
                      Horny lesbo seeks sleazy slut for sex,
                      sex, sex.

                                KIM	
                      Can you say that ten times fast?

                                GLORY	
                          (fast)

                      sex, sex.

                                KIM	
                      Very good.

            SCENE: ANITA AND ANNIES SECOND DATE-ANNIES HOUSE 

            Annie and Anita enter on the second Horny Lesbo line so that
            they are both at the door ready for the next scene.

                                ANITA 	
                      Excuse me? Are you the Perky Porn Star
                      seeking casual encounters but maybe more.

                                ANNIE	
                      Are you the Lesbian executive seeking fun
                      times, fine dining and walks on the
                      beach?

                                ANITA	
                      That's me.

                                ANNIE	
                      Come on in.

                                ANITA	
                      Wow. This is your house? I feel like I'm
                      in Bali or something. It's so exotic. 
                          (they kiss) 
                      You know the last time I saw you, you
                      were dressed as a cop. 

                                ANNIE 	 
                      You look good.

                                ANITA
                      Thank you. So do you.

                                ANNIE 	
                      You look like a lesbian Jackie O.

                                ANITA 	 
                      It's my power suit.  Do I look powerful?  

                                ANNIE 	
                      You look uncomfortable.

                                ANITA 	 
                      I am.

                                ANNIE 	
                      Take off your jacket. I want to see your
                      body. 

            Anita takes off her jacket.

                                ANNIE (CONT'D) (cont'd)
                      Now, you look like a lesbian Sharon
                      Stone.

                                ANITA 	
                      That's redundant.

                                ANNIE	
                          (they kiss) 
                      I thought about you all day.

                                ANITA	
                      I thought about you, too.

                                ANNIE	
                      You wanna dance?

                                ANITA	
                      I'd love to.

            Annie goes off-stage to put on a CD. She comes back and her
            and Annie begin to slow dance.

                                ANNIE	
                      You move so well.

                                ANITA	
                      Not as good as you. 

            They continue to slow dance.

                                ANNIE
                      You wanna drink?

                                ANITA
                      I'd love one.

                                ANNIE
                      Be right back.

                                ANITA 	
                      So, is this where you do all your
                      photography?

                                ANNIE	
                      Just for now, until I get a studio. 

                                ANITA	
                      I'd love to see your photos.  If you
                      don't mind?

                                ANNIE	
                      I don't show many people. I get kind of
                      embarrassed. I'm not a Mapplethorpe or
                      anything. But eventually I hope to have a
                      book published. Like one of those big
                      coffee table books.

                                ANITA	
                      I'd buy it.

                                ANNIE 	
                      These are a few.

                                ANNIE (cont'd)
                      I have about 600.

            Anita looks and comments on each photo.

                                ANITA	
                      Wow. Wow. Wow. These are amazing. Wow.
                      That's funny. She's pretty. Wow. Annie,
                      you're really good. You should submit
                      these to magazines.

                                ANNIE	
                      Oh please, Anita, who's gonna publish a
                      picture of a dyke with a shaved head and
                      a bone through her nose? Would your
                      magazine publish it?

                                ANITA	
                      Probably not.

                                ANNIE	
                      See.

                                ANITA	
                      You could self-publish.

                                ANNIE	
                      How does that work?

                                ANITA	
                      Oh it's easy.

                                ANNIE 	
                      So, lets do it.

                                ANITA	
                      Do what?

                                ANNIE	
                      Let's publish these.  If it's so easy. If
                      you really think 
                      they'd make a great book...let's do it.
                      I've got some money saved up. Let's do
                      it.  It'd be like Madonna and her Sex
                      book. But for girls.  Seriously.  You
                      said you hate your job. Just take six
                      months off.

                                ANITA	
                      Six months off?  I can't take six months
                      off.

            SCENE: LOIS AND KIMS HOUSE

            Kim is rushing out the door.

                                KIM	
                      She's taking six months off. That's what
                      she said. "I'm taking 6 months off to do
                      something really big." 

                                LOIS	
                      Like what?

                                KIM	
                      She wants to tell me over lunch. We're
                      meeting at Glory's.  I gotta go.  I don't
                      want to be late.

                                LOIS
                      Bye

                                KIM
                      Bye.

            Kim walks through the door...shuts it behind her...then comes
            right back through it.  We are now in the restuarant.

                      So, Annie and I have a proposition for
                      you.  You know Annie is in the "adult
                      entertainment" industry.

                                ANNIE

                      I loved it, but I'm ready to move on.

                      And so am I. And we have this idea.

                      I've got a book.

                                KIM	
                      Slow down, slow down. What kind of
                      photos?

                                ANITA
                      You know...

                                ANNIE	
                      Erotica.

                                ANITA	
                      Women for women.

                                ANNIE
                      Remember Madonna's Sex book?

                                ANITA	
                      It would be like that only for women, for
                      lesbians for dykes.

                                KIM	
                      Are you kidding?  That's the worst
                      audience.  They're they cheapest.  They
                      buy one book and pass it around. This is
                      crazy. You'll never even find a
                      publisher.

                                ANITA	
                      We were thinking of doing it ourselves.

                                KIM 	
                      Do you know how hard that is? 

                                ANITA	
                      Yeah, but with your help.

                                KIM	
                      I can't help you?  You're crazy.  You're
                      insane. I'm married.  We have a mortgage.
                      We're talking about having a kid. And
                      Lois...you know how she feels about
                      pornography?  This would be like blowing
                      a hole into the bottom of our sinking
                      ship. What were you thinking?

                                ANITA 	 
                      I was thinking of having some fun for a
                      while. I thought you hated your job.

            Glory re-enters.

                                KIM
                      I do, but I'm not quitting my job for
                      nothing.  Jesus!  Grow up, I don't have
                      time for this nonsense. I wish I did but
                      I don't. I have to work for a living. I
                      have to go!  I'm on a deadline, I work 9
                      5, I'm boring. Good luck with your book!
                      Send me a copy! 

            Kim exits.

                                GLORY 	 
                      What was that all about?

                                ANITA 	 
                      I have no idea. I think we're gonna
                      publish a book, Glory, full of naked
                      women. 

                                GLORY 	 
                      Oh, I want to be in it. Fuck Kim.

            Flashes her tits.

                                GLORY (cont'd)
                      Put me in it!

            They all laugh and exit.

            SCENE: LOIS AND KIMS HOUSE

            Kim is now home and in a foul mood.

                                KIM	
                      She's quitting her job to print a porno
                      book?  That's what she said.

                                LOIS	
                      A porno book for lesbians. You know who's
                      gonna buy that?  Straight men. 

                                KIM	
                      I'd buy it. 

                                LOIS	
                      That's pathetic. 

                                KIM	
                      It's not pathetic, Lois. It's exciting.
                      It's the kind of stuff you would have
                      done before you became a boring academic.

                                LOIS
                      What's wrong with you?

                                KIM 
                      Were dying here Lois.  Don't you feel it?  
                      Were like an old married couple.  That's
                      not right. I don't want to became old
                      with you.  I don't want to be known as
                      the two old dykes that live in Marin and
                      keep to themselves. What happened to us?
                      We don't go out.  We don't talk.  We
                      don't have fun. We never have sex
                      anymore? 

                                LOIS	
                      I've just been tired lately, that's all. 
                      Don't read too much in to it.

                                KIM	
                      Are you having an affair?

                                LOIS	
                      Of course not.

                                KIM	
                      Are you sure.

                                LOIS
                      I'm sure.

                                KIM
                      Do you ever think about it though.

                                LOIS
                      What?

                                KIM
                      Having an affair?  Do you ever think
                      about having an affair?

                                LOIS
                      Never. 

                                KIM
                      I don't believe you.

                                LOIS
                      Why would I lie?

                                KIM
                      I think about it. I think about having an
                      affair everyday. I think about having an
                      affair with every woman I see. You should
                      have seen Anita and Annie together just
                      now. They were beaming. They couldn't
                      keep their hands off each other. It was
                      beautiful. I felt like throwing up. They
                      reminded me of us when we first met. I
                      don't want to be sad anymore. I'm leaving
                      you Lois. I'm leaving you for another
                      woman.

                                LOIS
                      Who?

                                KIM
                      I don't know yet. Don't pressure me.

            Kim storms out.  Lois sits alone.
