INT. OFFICE HALL. EVENING.
Joseph and Ethan appear in a row of cubicles, and it appears the office is in the middle of a huge party. People were dancing, drinking cocktails, laughing, and conversing animatedly.
Sure doesn’t look like they’re
We’ve never had an office party
before! What’s going on?
At that moment, the boss (GREGORY) turns off the music. Everyone pays attention as he prepares to speak.
I just wanted to take a moment
to remind you all why we’re here
and we’re celebrating today. Exactly
one year ago we lost a brave hero.
Ethan Miller died tragically. He
was certainly an asset in his life, but
he proves to be an even greater
influence through his death. His
actions have inspired us to be the
company we are today. Profits
have soared higher than ever, thanks
to his philosophy! So, let’s all have
Gregory turns on the music, and everyone resumes the party.
Don’t even ask. I’m not ready
yet. Just because the company
doesn’t miss me and is more
profitable than ever since I died
doesn’t mean my coworkers don’t
Joseph shrugs and lets Ethan listen to his coworkers chat.
I hope this party makes Ethan
You know it does!
Didn’t I replace him?
You didn’t replace him. No
one could replace what he
did. But essentially you took
over his duties when he was
You were the only one that was
not intimidated by taking his old
cubicle. No one thought they could
fill his shoes. Lucky you did! The
company is doing so well now!
Thanks guys! Hey, John! Isn’t
that the girl you like over there?
Yes it is! Look at Sarah standing
by herself. Go ask her to dance!
Oh, I couldn’t!
Do it dude! Or someone else will!
Why would she say yes to me?
You’re a nice guy. Girls love nice
guys. Go be charming and she has
to fall for you!
They urge John to go ask Sarah to dance. He hesitates, but eventually they convince him to go. They watch him from a distance. She says yes, and they all cheer. The group talks about their favorite cocktails. Ethan looks crestfallen.
Your fiancee moved on. Your
parents are doing well. Your
sister turned out fine. Your
coworkers are flourishing.
Is there anyone else you want
to see going on, or can we finally
go back to Heaven’s Headquarters?
I’m not a quitter! Someone in this
town must miss me!
Joseph groans but snaps his fingers to take them away anyways.
