ADDICT Scene-11

Updated on December 19, 2011

He who the Son sets free...

He who the Son sets free...


32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

33They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

34Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

35And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

36If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Keith unlocks the top desk drawer of his desk, and pulls out a large manila envelope filled with five thousand dollars and hands it to Q.

your knucklehead roommates. (beat) By the way how

“hit you” just so we can rap about my twisted up childhood!

This gotta’ be about my big boy down St. Nicks,

you know he’s all yours if you want him.

KEITH

Actually my brother this has nothing to do with basketball.

CHUCKY (VO)

Not about basketball and we using disposables, (beat)

correct?

CHUCKY(VO)

State, and ya’ll niggas’ still owe me ten G’s for

getting ya’ll butts busted by Florida in the final four!


Keith, and Chucky share a laugh together.

KEITH

My fault Dog, I had an off night, but dig the move Chuck,

know the boy T is tryin’ to get at you. Tryin’ to

take what’s yours and I ain’t feelin that Dog (beat)

so I’ll get right to the point. Chucky I know this

kid’s whole security set up, I’ll make

a blueprint for you and highlight the spots of

vulnerability for you.

CHUCKY(VO)

Why?

KEITH

Because I need to set me, and my family free.

CHUCKY (VO)

Coach, feel me on this, when Q told me you wanted me to

“hit you” on a disposable cell phone, using a disposable

myself, I knew you was ready to try to put dookie in

the game between me and T (beat) but dig me Coach,

KEITH

(desperation)

But this devil gotta die Yo!

CHUCKY (VO)

Coach, no disrespect (beat) but I don’t know what

that nigga’ T got on you, but Coach you better than that.

Me and that nigga’ we ain’t got no choice (beat)

cause this the life we chose. But Coach you better than us;

you be helpin’ kids (beat) Plus you don’t want nobody’s

blood on your hands, not even a rotten bastard like T.

(beat) Believe me I got enough of it on my hands,

and you don’t want it. (beat) Sometime it makes

it hard for a nigga’ to get a good night’s sleep.

KEITH

I feel what your sayin’ (beat) I ain’t had a

good night sleep in weeks.

CHUCKY (VO)

Somthin’ tells me I don’t even want to know what’s got you

losin’ sleep Coach, but it don’t take a “brain surgeon”

to figure out it got somethin’ to do with why we

havin' this conversation. (beat) Look Coach you just

keep takin' care of my nephew, and the rest of them kids,

and I’ll send T straight to Hell way before the both of

us get there.

KEITH

Watch your back C, that nigga is as treacherous as they

come.

CHUCKY (VO)

One.

SFX: CELL PHONES BEEPS OFF

PUSH IN TO CLOSE UP of Keith staring down at the mirror that he was just snorting cocaine from. He pounds his fist in disgust. The mirror shatters into pieces. Keith begins to weep. We now see a distorted figure of Keith, reflected through the broken, cocaine and blood covered mirror.
