INT. BIG GUY’S OFFICE. (CON’T).
The Big Guy summons JOSEPH (a young man with a gray suit and a white tie, black hair, muscular build). Joseph enters and looks at the Big Guy awaiting his wishes.
Show Ethan his world without him.
I gotta go. I’m helping my son throw
a party tonight!
The Big Guy disappears.
Thanks a lot, now I’m going to miss
So, who are you? Saint Joseph?
No! My name is Joseph Love. I
was a soldier in the Revolutionary
Oh, you got killed in battle?
No, after we won, my friends and I
had a party and I died there.
How’d you die?
I don’t know.
Wait a minute, how’d I die?
No one in Heaven is supposed to
know. If they think about their
death, they’ll never stop dwelling
on it. Though the last thing I
remember is swimming, so I think
I drowned. But who knows! Anyways,
you think the world can’t survive
without you? Who depended on you?
My fiancee, Diana Shaw. She’s in
love with me, so there’s no way
she’ll survive without me!
Is that right?
Joseph snaps his fingers, and they both disappear.
INT. FANCY RESTAURANT. EVENING.
Joseph and Ethan appear in a gourmet restaurant that is mostly full.
Can anyone see me?
Nope. Where’s Diana?
Ethan scans the restaurant and sees DIANA (strawberry blonde hair in a bun and wearing a chic red dress). Diana is sitting with a very handsome man, FRANK. Ethan stands next to her, listening to her dialogue.
It’s the first date I’ve been on
since my fiancee died three
Sorry, Heaven doesn’t have a real
concept of time.
I have to confess when I befriended
you at work, I always hoped that you
would break up with your fiancee. I
mean, he’s the greatest guy I know, but
I had such a crush on you for a long time.
I only hope that I can give you as much
happiness as Ethan did.
I think you will. I have to also make
a confession. I loved Ethan with all
my heart, but ever since I met you,
my heart was torn between two men.
I know that he would’ve wanted me to
move on and be happy. I could really
see myself have a future with you. I
think I could be falling for you.
Are you afraid of moving too fast?
Ethan will always be a part of my
past, but you are my future!
Frank beamed, and Diana smiled back.
That bastard! This whole time he
was trying to steal my woman! I’ll
Ethan tries to strangle Frank, but his hands go right through him.
A few things. First of all, remember
you’re not supposed to swear. Second,
you’re invisible, so he can’t see or feel
you. And lastly, I doubt the Big Guy
will let you into Heaven if you actually
did kill someone. I know you’re hurting,
so I’m gonna pretend I didn’t see that.
Okay, so maybe she’s move on, but
my parents will be devastated.
If you say so.
Joseph snaps his fingers, and they disappear.
