INT. DEN. SUBURBAN HOME - NIGHT
Lying on the sofa, a WOMAN reads a psychological thriller, her cat sleeping at her feet. She sets the book down, eyeing the room suspiciously. The furniture seems to have moved in closer to her. She shudders.
The CHIMES of the grandfather clock cause her to jump. As she collects herself,
Hand in chin, she absentmindedly talks to the cat.
One piece of chocolate won't hurt my diet.
Where's your will power?
Leave me alone! It's only one piece of chocolate!
She gets up and walks into the kitchen.
INT. KITCHEN - NIGHT
Barbara searches every nook and cranny to no avail.
What'd I do with them?
Her eyes widen. She rushes downstairs to the washroom in the basement.
INT. WASHROOM - NIGHT
She flicks the switch. No light.
Why did you have to pick tonight to go out, Jack?
In the dark she gropes for the flashlight on the shelf with the laundry supplies. With the flashlight on, she reaches behind the washer/dryer and pulls a gold-covered box.
Smiling, she hurriedly opens the box and pops a chocolate into her mouth, then another.
You have no will power.
She suddenly hears a CRASH in the garage.
Holding the flashlight close to her, Barbara picks up a crowbar resting at the side of the entrance to the garage. She cautiously opens the garage door. Taking up most of the garage, a GIANT BALL OF SOCKS stalks her. She quickly SLAMS the door shut, but her strength is no match for the giant ball of socks. It squeezes through the doorway and chases her up the stairs into the den.
We want our mates. What have you done
INT. DEN - NIGHT
Barbara bumps into the sofa, nearly knocking the lamp over. The ball stops dead in its tracks, studying her, breathing heavily. Cautiously, she steps toward the telephone and dials 911.
What's the emergency?
A ball of socks is...
As it inches closer,
Did you say a ball of socks?
1099 Elm Street. Hurry!
When the POLICE arrive, two force the front door open. As they rush into the den, they hear a VOICE coming from upstairs. They rush up the stairs towards Barbara's VOICE in one of the bedrooms.
INT. BEDROOM - NIGHT
As they kick the door in, guns drawn, Barbara is sitting on the floor pairing socks.
Hello, gentlemen. These socks found one another.
How long has it been?
The policemen glance at one another, perplexed.
Would you care for a chocolate? You see, I have no
Ma'am. Why don't you come with us?
I didn't mean to! I promise I won't do it again! Jack?
Jack? Who's Jack?
He's not here.
Please, ma'am. If you don't make a fuss, I won't handcuff you.
Barbara slowly rises. Her eyes fall on the golden box.
Do you mind if I take that box of chocolates?
While sitting in the rear of the police car,
I'll show them I have will power. I won't eat one
FADE TO BLACK
