INT. BRAVES LIVING ROOM - DAY (DAY 1)
TROY AND TARRIN ARE WATCHING TV. WE CAN HEAR DOVANNA
WORKING ON SOME BEATS ON HER COMPUTER.
Would you turn that TV down? I'm
trying to work here.
Why don't you go work in your
Yeah. Or put your headphones on.
Both of you shut up.
You shut up.
Okay, you wanna play with me?
DAVONNA TURNS HER MUSIC UP LOUD AND BEGINS TO SING/RAP
Yeah. Awe yeah, come on! Yeah!
Will you shut up?! We're trying to
What?! I can't hear you!
Turn it up, Tarrin.
THE BOYS TURN THE TV UP LOUDER.
DAVONNA BEGINS TO SING/RAP LOUDER, TRYING TO DROWN OUT THE
RAYDELL ENTERS THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR.
What's all this noise?! Turn that
THE BOYS TURN THE TV VOLUME WAY DOWN. DAVONNA TURNS HER
That's them! I'm trying to work
and they keep yelling.
But we were here first.
Leave your sister alone.
But she keeps bothering us--
Leave her alone I said.
Thanks Dad. What are you doing
One of our printers was giving off
some serious fumes so Mr.
Peregrino sent us all home for the
What are you working on now? Let
me guess, Hip-hop again.
Hip-hop in the morning hip-hop at
night, when does it end?
When I'm cold and dead, or win a
Isn't that the same song you were
working on last month?
Yes, I'm trying to perfect it, you
know, the beats gotta be right and
the breaks gotta be tight.
Why would you want to break it
after spending all that time
trying to make it perfect?
That's just music-talk, Dad.
Look, you know I'm behind you one
hundred percent on this, right?
You keep working hard and before
you know it you'll be touring with
THE KIDS LAUGH.
You two shut up over there. What's
You're in the music business and
you don't know who the queen of
KAYLA ENTERS THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR, EXCITED.
Ray, what are you doing home
One of their printers was giving
off some serious fumes.
So Mr. Peregrino sent them all
home for the day.
What about you? How was your first
day in the jewelry business?
Absolutely insane! You guys are
not going to believe what happened
today. You're just not.
I stopped a jewel heist!
Just a few hours ago.
Are you serious?
Yes. Let me tell you what
happened. You might want to get
some popcorn for this.
...Okay anyway. First, I'm already
clocked in and I'm doing my job,
checking everything out. Then this
guy walks in wearing a Hillery
Clinton mask, right then and there
I knew there was going to be
trouble. Before I knew it he had
his gun out yelling, "Everybody on
the floor!" Everybody hits the
floor except me. So he walks over
to me with a nasty snarl and a bad
attitude, but I wasn't scared.
Then he jumps in my face like he
was all big and bad. Well his
breath was bad, badder than bad,
it was downright horrible, made my
Kay, so he points his gun in my
face and says "I'm gonna ask you
one more time, get on the floor."
But I don't blink and I don't
budge. I just look him dead in his
beady bloodshot eyes and say, "You
picked the wrong day, the wrong
store and the wrong security guard
to mess with." Then I say, "You
can drop your weapon right now and
live, or keep breathing on me and
die." His mouth drops, then he
takes off running, straight out
the door. I mean straight out,
without even opening it.
I think he was after our chocolate
So you let him go?
Of course not, he had a head start
but I chased him down like a wild
rabbit and tackled him like a NFL
Wow, that's a great story.
So are they going to give you any
...No, but the security guards
union of Brownwood are throwing me
a potluck next month and I don't
have to bring a thing.
Hey look, Mom's on TV!
Turn it up.
TROY RUSHES OVER AND GRABS THE TV REMOTE.
TOO LATE, TROY TURNS THE TV TV VOLUME UP ON THE NEWS.
I didn't know you were going to be
Me either. But I just told you
guys the story. You really don't
Shhh. I can't hear.
NEWS REPORTER (V.O.)
This is Dana Paisley for TMI-OMG
Earlier today a jewelry robbery
was foiled by a brave security
guard, her name, Kayla Brave.
So what exactly happened?
I'm not sure, it all happened so
RAYDELL AND THE KIDS LOOK AT AN EMBARRASSED KAYLA, WHO
TRIES NOT TO MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH THEM.
NEWS REPORTER (V.O.)
Eye witnesses said he pointed a
gun at you before you even had
time to draw yours. What happened?
Well yes, he had this big huge
gun, looked like some kind of war
RAYDELL AND THE KIDS LOOK AT KAYLA AGAIN WHO NOW HAS HER
FACE BURIED IN THE SOFA PILLOW.
NEWS REPORTER (V.O.)
So how did you end up apprehending
this hardened criminal?
He tripped over his duffel bag and
fell through the front glass door,
busted his grill all up.
NEWS REPORTER (V.O.)
And that's when you cuffed him?
Yes, that's when I cuffed him.
NEWS REPORTER (V.O.)
Well let that be a lesson to the
rest of you would-be criminals,
don't mess with Kayla Brave or you
just might be picking your teeth
off the pavement. Tonight,
Babyface Hester is behind bars,
thanks to Kayla Brave.
That was Babyface Hester?
NEWS REPORTER (V.O.)
Oh my dear mother, she fainted.
(to her crew)
I think we're gonna need a
Turn it off. Turn it off!
TROY TURNS THE TV OFF.
That was great honey, you catching
that high-profile criminal makes
you a certified hero. The mayor's
probably going to give you a key
to the city.
KAYLA DOESN'T SEEM TO BE FEELING ANY BETTER.
Not to mention the camera really
You really think so?
Absolutely. And you and that guard
uniform were made for each other.
Look honey, those cops have been
trying to catch this guy for
months, but you, you were the one
who brought him down.
He dripped over a bag.
But you stared him in the eyes so
hard you made him trip.
KAYLA STARTS TO SMILE A BIT.
I did didn't I.
Yeah. We're proud of you, Mom.
Why don't we go out and celebrate
with a big dinner.
Only if you're paying.
INT. BRAVE'S DINING ROOM - DAY (DAY 1)
THE FAMILY IS SITTING AT THE TABLE EATING BREAKFAST.
Good morning everybody.
Why you all dressed up? It's
I gotta go talk to Derrick about a
That's Mr. Peregrino, my boss.
What kind of promotion?
I might be taking his place as
store manager. He got caught
giving his girlfriend big
discounts and free colored copies.
That's great news for you.
I know, all he does is sit in his
office and eat custard all day.
That's where I want to be.
What's his girlfriend look like?
...Below average. Look I gotta go.
You didn't eat breakfast.
I don't have time.
This is a big-time promotion. You
gotta eat something. Take your
oatmeal with you. You can eat it
on the freeway.
Alright. I'll See you guys later.
RAYDELL EXITS OUT THE FRONT DOOR.
Time for me to finish working too.
DAVONNA HEADS OVER TO HER COMPUTER.
Not with the music again. Mom,
make her go to your room with
I can't work with those wild
animals staring at me through my
There are no wild animals--
Everybody shut up. You guys work
it out, but I don't wanna hear it.
I gotta work on my candles.
KAYLA BEGINS WALKING AWAY.
Who you talking to?
Not you, Mom. It's my computer. I
can't access my files.
Ha. We can finally get some peace.
DAVONNA HITS THE KEYS ON HER KEYBOARD AGAIN AND AGAIN.
You try re-booting?
What about Control-Alt-Delete?
Did you try a hard boot by holding
down the power button until it
shuts off, then power up again?
Yes-yes, I've tried all of that,
but it's not working! Nothing's
What's the big deal? Borrow
I couldn't if I wanted to. All of
my music files are on mine.
So you don't back up to external
I didn't have time. What am I
going to do? I've got customers
waiting on their music.
DAVONNA MAKES A FEW MORE UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS TO ACCESS
HER COMPUTER THEN BREAKS DOWN IN TEARS.
I can take a look at it if you
want. but it's not going to be
No. Don't touch it, don't even
look at it. I'm going to call tech
support. Wait. I got an email.
DAVONNA READS HER EMAIL.
Oh my gosh.
What is it?
I don't know but listen.
"I have control of your computer
and all of your data. If you want
to ever see it again, send me
three thousand dollars via Pay
Partner. You have five hours to
deliver. Thank you."
Ha ha. You've been hijacked.
What do you mean hijacked?
Someone installed Ransomware on
your computer. They're gonna hold
your data until you pay.
I don't have three thousand
dollars. Who would want to do
something like this to me?
Probably your competition.
Ransomware is is pretty serious
stuff. You only have five hours,
so you definitely don't want to
call tech support. I hate to say
it, but I may be your only option.
INT. BRAVE'S DINING ROOM DAY - LATER (DAY 1)
DAVONNA AND TARRIN ARE AT HER COMPUTER.
Okay Tarrin. I've got beats to
make and music to sell. You've
gotta fix it.
Okay. But there is a consultation
fee. A traveling fee--
A traveling fee? You were already
A handling charge and a processing
What do you have to process? Never
mind, just do it.
DAVONNA HANDS TARRIN TEN DOLLARS.
Now get to work.
Thanks, but I can't make any
Mom, can I please--
Sorry, but I have my own problems.
Time to make some candles. I'll be
in the garage.
I'm out too. Going to play some
basketball with the guys.
Alright. Make sure you wear your
mouth piece, your goggles and your
Mom. Not in front of the kids.
TROY EXITS. KAYLA EXITS.
Okay "D". Go get my purple
backpack from my room.
Please get my purple backpack from
DAVONNA GOES AND RETURNS WITH THE BACKPACK.
Now draw the blinds and the TV on.
How can this possibly--
Just do it.
DAVONNA RUSHES OVER TO THE REMOTE CONTROL AND TURNS THE TV
So what's that supposed to do,
scramble the wi-fi signals?
No, I just love watching cartoons
while I work.
TARRIN BEGINS CHECKING OUT THE COMPUTER.
Okay. Alright. Ahhh!
What happened? Did it shock you?
No. I gotta use the bathroom.
TARRIN TAKES OFF TO THE BATHROOM.

Yes. Good morning Raydell, have a

Would you rather be manager or a
I'm pretty new here, but I
definitely want to move up at some
I'm sure it's no secret that I'm
on the verge of losing my job.
Yes, I am aware of that.
You are?! Now how do you know?!
Who told you?!
We all heard the District Manager
yelling at you last week.
Eavesdropping huh? You know that's
illegal in thirty states.
Yes. It's a Greek word derived
from a southern derelict, meaning
mind your own business.
I wasn't aware southern derelicts-
You like working here at Blinko's?
Yes, of course.
You like this office?
Yes, it's okay.
No, it's better than okay, it's
freakin' nice. Plush high-back
chair. Got my own mini cooler.
Yeah I can see it in your eyes,
you love it. You want it. You can
What? Did you break wind? Next
time warn a me before you start
bombing the place.
No, I didn't break anything and--
Whew, that was a funky one, and I
don't mean musically. You don't
like me do you, Raydell?
I do, I--
Never mind, your fart speaks for
itself. But it's okay, I'm your
boss, I can live with that. You
think I'm good looking? Handsome?
...I guess so, but I--
So you like males and females?
What? I never said that.
You play your cards right and you
just might get lucky.
Awe come on Raydell!
(waving the air)
You've got to get a handle on that
gas problem of yours.
DERRICK OPENS A WINDOW.
INT BRAVE'S LIVING ROOM - DAY (DAY 1)
TARRIN CONTINUES TO FIDDLE WITH THE COMPUTER.
So what do you think?
Too soon to tell. Hand me the RX
DAVONNA PICKS UP A DEVICE.
DAVONNA HANDS THE DEVICE TO TARRIN. HE PUTS IT INTO ONE OF
THE USB SLOTS AND ATTEMPTS TO GET IT GOING.
The boot-loader's infected. I'm
going to have to by-pass the bios.
Hand me my tablet.
DAVONNA REACHES INTO THE BACKPACK AND TAKES OUT A TABLET.
TARRIN HOOKS IT TO THE COMPUTER VIA CABLE THEN TAPS A FEW
What's that going to do?
I'm trying to load a different OS
from an external source.
How long is that going to take?
KAYLA ENTERS THE ROOM.
DAVONNA AND TARRIN KEEP SCRATCHING THEIR HEADS.
Why you two keep scratching your

When's the last time you kids
washed your hair.
Couple of days ago.
Wait a minute. Both of you be
You guys have lice.
INT. BLINKO'S/MANAGER'S OFFICE - DAY (DAY 1)
DERRICK IS TURNING HIS FAN ON TO HELP WITH THE VENTILATION.
What does my shirt say, Raydell?
Read it for me.
"Blinkos. We're not copy cats,
we're the big dogs."
I worked hard every day to earn
We all have the same shirt.
Yes, but you paid for yours, mine
was free, that's why I take so
much pride in wearing it. I know
my job looks easy. I bet you think
all I do is sit back here, vape
and eat custard all day.
Well let me tell you what you
don't see. You don't see me taking
vacations. You don't see me taking
lunch breaks or holidays either,
You're right, you don't. As a
matter of fact I've never even see
you leave the building.
Because I don't. I eat here, I
sleep here. I don't go home unless
there's a child birth, fire or a
flood. Look, I don't blame you for
wanting my job, trying to move up
in your profession. A man is
supposed to try and better
himself, but my girlfriend? She's
I never said anything about your
girlfriend. I'm a happily married
Then why do you keep staring at
her like that? Every time she
walks in, your eyes jump out your
sockets like some kind of Loony
Believe me, one woman is more than
enough, so I'm certainly not
interested in Janell--
What's wrong with her? You think
she's ugly? You saying I have bad
No. Believe me, I'm not sure what
I'm saying anymore.
Alright brotha, let me just lay it
out on the table for you. Janell
likes ballers, but when she found
out I was on the verge of loosing
my job, she left me. So Mr. Brave,
when you slide into this ballin
ass manager's position, no doubt
she'll be snuggling up to you like
a warm teddy bear on a cold frosty
night. So go ahead, take her!
She's all yours!
What?! No, I don't want her--
While you're at it, why don't you
take my dog, my house, my wife, my
This conversation is going way off
course here. Look, I didn't call
you in here to make a fuss, I came
in here to give you my blessing,
because I know you're the right
man for the job. You're going to
make a fine manager.
Thank you. I'm sorry it turned out
this way but... I'll make you
Sorry I put you through all that,
I'm just a blind Korean manager
who wants some respect.
No. And the fact that you had to
ask, tells me you aren't very
observant at all. A good manager
must be observant or patriotic,
I'm sorry but I don't think you're
ready to be the next manager here
at Blinko's. Now send in the
plotter guy. What's his name?
No, the guy who works the plotter
Okay. Oscar it is then. Send him
in, on your way out.
RAYDELL SLOWLY HEADS OUT OF THE OFFICE WITH A LOOK OF
DEFEAT ON HIS FACE.
What just happened?
Okay, now that was a real one.
INT. BRAVE'S LIVING ROOM - LATER (DAY 1)
RAYDELL ENTERS TO SEE DAVONNA WEARING A SHOWER CAP AS SHE
WORKS ON KAYLA'S COMPUTER. TARRIN ALSO WEARS A SHOWER CAP.
What's going on here? You give the
kids a Jeri Curl?
No, they have lice?
Yeah, I just gave them some
medication, it's under those
shower caps doing it's thing right
Yuck. You kids keep at least six,
no, twelve feet away from me until
you're totally cured with no

SWEATING LIKE AN ATHLETE ON A HOT SUMMER TRAINING DAY, HER
EYES INTENSELY RED.
So how'd it go at work? You get
I'm afraid not.
What happened, I though you said
it was a done deal.
It was until I undid it.
How'd you do that?
I'm not sure, but at least I still
have a job.
Ahhh! What am I doing wrong?!
What's going on?
Somebody hijacked her computer.
We only have two hours left!
I know! I know! I didn't want to
have to do this, but hand me the
The Dark Clone? But you said to
Never mind what I said, just hand
it to me!
DAVONNA REACHES INTO THE BACKPACK AND GRABS AN ODD-LOOKING
DEVICE. SHE HANDLES IT LIKE A DANGEROUS PIECE OF EXPLOSIVE
AS HE GIVES IT TO TARRIN.
What's the Dark Clone? And why is
it glowing like that?
I don't think you really want to

you guys out here in your driveway
with all your stuff? You get
No, we're in a serious situation
where we need to raise some quick
Why didn't you ask me?
Thanks for the offer, but we don't
really know you that well yet.
Nonsense. How much do you need?
Three thousand dollars.
Yeah, you're right. We don't know
each other that well.
Would you like to buy anything,
Maybe. What's the cause?
Somebody's holding my computer
data for ransom. This emergency
garage sale is our last hope.
Oh, ransom. Yeah, I hear that
ransomware is pretty nasty. Hold
on a quick minute.
VITO USES HIS CELL PHONE ON-THE-SLY. DAVONNA CHECKS HER
Hey, I just got an email. It's the
hacker. It says,
Out of the goodness of my heart, I
have unlocked all of your data.
Have a good day.
That was odd.
Wait a minute. Was that you?
Yeah. I just saw you use your
phone, then Davonna suddenly gets
Yeah what's going on, Vito?
Okay, it was me. But it was an
accident. It was supposed to be a
practical joke on my brother, but
I got the wrong I.P. Address by
Tarrin worked on that stupid
computer for like three hours.
Three point two hours.
I'm sorry. I'm really really
You're a lousy hacker, Vito.
Yes. I guess I am.
Still you must pay.
Pay? For what?
Four all of our time, trouble and
inconvenience. Kids. Caps off.
DAVONNA AND TARRIN TAKE THEIR SHOWER CAP OFF.
Wait. What are you doing?
Just a little practical joke.
Wait a minute. Please tell them to
put those shower caps back on.
Get him kids!
DAVONNA AND TARRIN CHASE DOWN THE STREET.
Wow, he's got some moves. Must
have played football in college.
Don't worry, they'll get him. Oh!
KAYLA AND RAYDELL LAUGH.
Yeah, he's done now.
