MT. OLYMPICS

And the winners are:
Zeus - Donald Sutherland (83%)
Hera - Judy Dench (40%)
Thank you for voting!

FADE IN:

EXT. ORNATE FOUNTAIN. MT. OLYMPUS - DAY

ZEUS stands facing the fountain; his wife, HERA, sitting on its edge. Zeus waves his hand over the fountain. Images of the Vancouver Olympic Games appear in the water.

ZEUS
Just in time.

HERA
Skiing?

ZEUS
The first downhill run.
(exasperated)
He's holding back.

HERA
There is no better skier than you, my love.

Zeus is fixated on the SKIER as he skis into last place.

ZEUS
Hera, I'll be back for dinner.

HERA
Where are you going?

In a flash, Zeus disappears.


EXT. WHISTLER BLACKCOMB MOUNTAIN. VANCOUVER - DAY

Zeus strides through the crowds, disguised as a spectator. He climbs to the Olympian downhill start house. The skier in last place shivers as an unusual sensation overtakes him.

Shaking off the sensation, he steps forward for his final downhill run. With uncharacteristic aggressiveness and grace, he flies downhill into first place.

Flanked by reporters and fellow skiers, he's stunned by his Gold medal performance.


EXT. WHISTLER MEDALS PLAZA - NIGHT

After the medals ceremony, the MEDIA rush towards him; a sexy JOURNALIST reaching him first.

JOURNALIST
I've never seen anything like your performance!
(grinning)
You were like a god out there.

SKIER
I had some help.

JOURNALIST
From?

SKIER
(as he steps closer)
Shall we talk about it over a quiet, intimate dinner?

JOURNALIST
(sensually)
Sure, but what about your wife?

SKIER
Your beauty rivals her broad mindedness.

JOURNALIST
Zeus, it's Hera.

Zeus whinces. Grinning,

HERA
Who should be your next winner?

ZEUS
(smiling)
He's a ski jumper.
(thumping his chest)
It feels just like Mt. Olympus.


FADE TO BLACK

OMG...what a FLAWLESS post, Petra!

From the start of th Olympic music, to the witty dialogue and clever plot...I LOVED IT!

Can you believe I haven't watched any of the Olympics? Shame on me. I can't help it though, I'm not much of a TV watcher. And besides, so many bloggers I know are posting video highlights on their blogs, so I just watch those to keep up - HA!

Oh, and you'll notice that I cast my votes for actor and actress.

Great post as usual, dear lady!

Enjoyed it!

And I award you a GOLD medal!
