FADE IN:

EXT. FOOT OF HILL - DAY

JACK and JILL climbed up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown...

Lying on the grass, distorted images of trees beneath the sky come into view as Jack slowly regains consciousness.

JILL
Jack, can you hear me?

Gingerly touching his bruised head, Jack sits up.

JACK
What happened?

JILL
You broke your crown again.

JACK
My crown? I do not wear a crown.

Studying his clothing, then feeling his face,

JACK
Where is my mask? And my cape?

JILL
Mask? Cape?

JACK
Have we had the pleasure of meeting, Senorita?

JILL
We've only climbed that hill fetching water for
what seems like an eternity.

JACK
Me? Fetch water?

JILL
Jack...

JACK
And why do you insist on calling me Jack? I am
Don Juan deMarco.

JILL
Who?

As he stands upright,

JACK
The greatest lover in the world.

JILL
(rolls her eyes)
If we don't fetch the water, we'll be sacked. Not
now, of all times.

JACK
My dear Senorita. You must not fret.

JILL
It takes more than love to pay the bills.

JACK
So young and so cynical. Do not underestimate
the power of love. And, it just so happens -- I am
rich.

JILL
And where, prey tell, is the money?

JACK
On the other side of the hill.

JILL
(sighs)
Okay. Let's go.

Jack and Jill climbed up the hill to fetch deMarco's money. Jack fell down and broke his crown...

Moaning, Jack lies in a stupor.

JILL
Jack?
(no response)
Mr. deMarco.

JACK
Who?

JILL
James Bond.

JACK
(thoughtfully)
No.

JILL
Robin Hood.

JACK
No.

Jill takes his hand and guides him over the hill. As they disappear,

JILL (OS)
The King of England.

JACK (OS)
Yes, King George. No, King Edward. No...

FADE TO BLACK

Hi Petra!

OMG...this was FABU!!!

This was so much better than the original Jack and Jill story!!!

And listen, I also voted.

I picked Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet as the characters. As a matter of fact, I just saw Kate in a movie this evening called "Revolutionary Road", did you see it? It was spectacular! She was amazing.

Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed this, dear lady!

Hope you had a wonderful day!

I agree with Ron-way more interesting and clever than the original. Now I just want to know what happened when they went over the hill : )

That Jill is a patient girl!

Hahaha! Poor Jill! Although .. if the person playing Jack is who I think it might be, perhaps that should be 'lucky Jill'? ;)

Very clever and imaginative!

LOL I can picture Roberto Begnini and his wife playing in this one. K.
