Quarterback, JOE PENDLETON, is looking forward to leading his team to the Super Bowl when he is involved in a terrible collision with a truck. An over-anxious guardian angel on his first assignment plucks Joe out of his body early, believing his death is imminent. Joe arrives in the afterlife.
He refuses to believe that his time is up. Upon investigation, the mysterious MR. JORDAN discovers that Joe's not destined to die until much later. Unfortunately, Joe's body has already been cremated so a new body must be found.
INT. RAYMOND JAMES STADIUM. TAMPA, FLORIDA - DAY
JOE PENDLETON and MR. JORDAN stand on the sidelines of Super Bowl XLIII; Joe WHISTLING exhuberantly.
Ever since I can remember, all I've ever
wanted was to be a quarterback.
You may get lucky, but I wouldn't count on
Early in the game, a quarterback is tackled.
This is it!
As Joe runs to the downed quarterback, he rises and joins his teammates. Joe GRUMBLES, watching the teams go head to head. Soon the opposing team's quarterback goes down.
This is it!
However, the quarterback collects himself and dashes towards his team; Joe left stunned and in a state of exasperation.
This dance of quarterbacks falling and Joe's attempts to enter their bodies repeats for hours. Aching and exhausted, he hobbles to Mr. Jordan, then collapses.
Take me, God. I'm ready.
Don't worry, Joe. The next will be yours.
I can't wait.
When the game ends, THOUSANDS rise and CHEER in exaltation; except one. A CHEERLEADER faints.
Painfully following Mr. Jordan's glance at the cheerleaders,
Beautiful. But I can't move let alone
make a pass.
The stretcher is nearing. Now, Joe. From
here on, you won't remember anything
As he slowly rises, he nods.
Where is it?
Behind you. Good bye, Joe.
As he collapses onto the stretcher,
So long, and thanks.
As Joe disappears, a sprightly CHEERLEADER sits up. Examining her surroundings,
Where am I?
She climbs off and bumps into Mr. Jordan.
Mr. Jordan stares at her.
Wasn't it the most exciting game ever?
I thought I fainted, but, here I am!
She looks around quizzically. Clutching his arm,
C'mon, cupcake. Let's celebrate.
But, I'm a man!
As he breaks free and steps back,
Joe, I've got to leave.
As he steps up his pace,
Where are you going?
Mr. Jordan runs for the hills,
The night's young!
Joe, er, the cheerleader on his heels.
FADE TO BLACK
