The Longest Date

And the winners are:
Mary - Meg Ryan (57%)
Harry - Bill Murray (42%)
Thank you for voting!

FADE IN:

EXT. BOARDWALK. ATLANTIC CITY. NEW JERSEY - DAY

On a brisk, September day, a COUPLE on their first date are sitting on a bench watching the waves roll in; each attempting to break the awkward silence.

HARRY
So...

MARY
Did you know Atlantic City's boardwalk is the longest in the world?

HARRY
Yeah. It's beautiful, isn't it?
(turns to Mary)
Can you guess the state with the longest name?

MARY
What is it?

HARRY
Rhode Island.

MARY
(grins)
The smallest state has the longest name?

HARRY
Yep. Its official name is the State of Rhode Island
of Providence Plantations.

MARY
How about the longest movie title?

HARRY
(enjoying the banter)
I give up.

MARY
Night of the Day of Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return
of the Revenge of the Terror of the attack of the Evil, Mutant,
Alien, Flesh-Eating, Hellbound Zombified Living Dead Part 2:
In shocking 2-D.

HARRY
Wow!

Suddenly, a wave washes a huge object ashore. Nearly everyone on the boardwalk rush to the shoreline, craning their necks to get a glimpse.

HARRY
It looks like a fish of some kind.

MARY
Yes, it's the humahumanukUnakuapuaa.

HARRY
(laughing)
Right. You're a brilliant marine biologist.

MARY
(smiling)
All this bantering has made me hungry.

HARRY
(rises, extends his hand)
I know the perfect spot. But I can't resist.
Pink Floyd has the coolest, longest song title.

Mary shakes her head agreeably as they walk along the boardwalk towards the parking lot.

HARRY
Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together
in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict'.

EXT. PARKING LOT - DAY

In the lot, one car takes up five parking spots.

HARRY
Unbelievable. A Duesenberg!

MARY
Yes, the longest Duesenberg ever made.

HARRY
How did you know?

MARY
It's a loaner from the museum. I admit, it's a bit over the top.
(tenderly)
But you're worth it.

Smitten, he rests on the opened car door.

HARRY
Let's make this our longest date, Mary.

FADE TO BLACK

Here`s to their l-o-o-ong relationship.

Jay said...

Hahaha!

Well, I chose Felicity Kendall, just because ... and because she would make a good job of it, too! And Hugh Grant. Now, I don't much like Hugh Grant, but I can see him in this role. ;)

Wordcrafter said...

Cool... I agree with Jay, Hugh Grant is kind of daft, this is perfect for him... and K Hudson is a cutie.. they would fit the roles perfectly.

tipper said...

How very sweet! I'll have to share this one with the girls-they've recently started to enjoy romantic stories. All part of growing up I guess!

Hello Mary Lou said...

This is so sweet! I loved the music too.

My favorite of the lot so far, though can you picture Frank Sinatra up against Vince Vaughn for a role? Frank would just have him whacked.

I think I'll vote for Bill Murray for the role, but the early Bill Murray, before people started taking him seriously.

And who is this Kate Winslet?

LOL! I know that if anyone from Hawaii is reading this (cough), they will be smacking their head and rolling their eyeballs at the fish line. She said WHAT?

I chose Hugh Grant and Meg Ryan.

Just struck me as perfect for this date, and it seems, many others as well thought as I did.

Very clever writing! And I loved the Pink Floyd reference, they are one of my favorites.

Hope your weekend was a long one!

If not, call in a few days this week and make sure of it!

Thanks, Petra for passing by, only this evening I have been able to access Blogger after a few days, I had trouble with it, and you can never get a straight answer from Google Help, they always suggest the problem is at your end, but I pestered them and it is sorted out now, so it was their problem. As usual:)
