INT. KRYCEK'S CAR
- AFTERNOON - MULDER DRIVING
FRIDAY, 15 OCTOBER 1999
It is very, very sunny out and Mulder refuses
to put on his sunglasses. He's not in the mood to listen to Krycek
Mulder ... put on
Han Solo never wore
sunglasses when he
piloted the Falcon.
Mulder looks at him, then looks back at the road,
squinting. It's so bright out! He knows he really should listen to Krycek, but he's still
irritated about the incident with the Cheerios a month ago! All Krycek buys for them is Cheerios. Not once has Krycek been considerate of his craving for those sweet, sweet marshmallows in the Lucky Charms!
(putting his hand in front of his
face to block the sun)
Really, Krycek, it's not that bright.
Then why are you covering
your eyes with your hands??
(takes hands off steering
and actually covers his eyes)
This is covering my eyes!
(grabs steering wheel)
EXT. TEN-THIRTEEN PRODUCTIONS PARKING LOT - STILL THE AFTERNOON
We see the car screeching to a stop next to some
car with flame stickers on the side ...
(checking out the car)
Krycek angrily gets out of the car, slamming
the door, looks back in at Mulder, rolls his eyes, says something
mean in Russian, but no one understands him. He starts walking
toward the building. He starts to approach a security guard ... thinking
that he will have to threaten him to get inside.
Good morning Mr. Lea.
Mulder finally tries to catch up with Krycek,
pulls out his F.B.I. badge, ready to pursue Krycek. Starts running
towards the SECURITY GUARD.
FBI!! Stop that man!!
I'm agent Fox Mulder
of the FBI, I'm in pursuit
of that man you just let in here.
Let me in.
No problem Mr. Duchovny.
INT. TEN-THIRTEEN PRODUCTIONS
We see CHRIS CARTER hauling his BUTT down the
hallway towards MULDER. Krycek is nowhere to be seen. He looks really
I'm Special Agent Fox Mulder-
Don't give me that crap David,
this is the third time
this week that you've been late.
You know Gillian isn't happy with this,
She's been here since 6 O'clock this morning
and you come wandering in, pretending to be
Agent Fox Mulder!
What do you mean pretending?
I don't think you understand, sir.
Carter looks at him, dumbfounded. He can't believe
what he is hearing from "David", he turns around to Joanne
Service, and says:
(under his breath)
He's having an identity crisis.
Get to sound stage 3 in ten minutes.
INT. SOUND STAGE 5 - MULDER - ALONE
Mulder doesn't really care what he is doing.
He needs to find Krycek, but he isn't worried that Krycek will drive
away, since he has the keys. Mulder notices two women in the background
... he wanders towards them ... as he gets closer, we realize that
it's Mimi Rogers and Gillian Anderson, with Piper, they are playing,
with David Duchovny's dog, Blue. Mulder approaches them, the dog runs
up to him all happy!!
Who are you?
Where have you been?
Carter's been looking for you.
David? Aren't you supposed
to be on sound stage three?
(looking back and forth
between the two of them)
B-but, Scully ...
a-and (to Mimi, whom he
believes is Diana Fowley) why
you actin' all normal?
Piper stands up, runs towards Mulder, with
a piece of paper with colorings all over it.
Look!! I made it for you!!
She hands him the paper. We see two stick people,
and a stick figure dog. Must be the Duchovny family portrait. Each
figure is labeled ... David, the tall lengthy one; Tea, the short
one; Blue, the dog. Mulder graciously accepts the picture, but doesn't
She looks for a reaction from "David's"
face, perhaps for a sign of approval, sees a smile, runs and hugs
his leg. In the background we hear someone else enter Sound Stage
Five, it is Nicholas Lea, on a break from filming, on Sound Stage
Here comes Uncle Nick, Piper.
Piper lets go of "David", and hyperactively
runs towards Nick Lea. As she is hugging Nick, Mulder looks at him,
suddenly really mad.
Krycek!! Arms up against the wall!
(pulls out his gun)
David! Cut it out!
Try any of that tailhook
crap on me, Krycek, and I'll
kick your a-
Mulder stops what he is doing, and looks at Carter.
Puts his gun away ... he thinks he is dreaming, or dead from falling
asleep in the car.
Is this Heaven?
Carter totally ignores him, says:
This is sound stage five.
(in an 'are psychotic tone')
And what are you doing to Nick?
David, come with me.
INT. TEN-THIRTEEN PRODUCTIONS - THE CRAFT SERVICE
TABLE - DAY
On the table we see boxes of donuts, cheese,
a toaster, coffee, tea, water, tylenol, chips (of all types), and
someone spilled a diet Coke. Oopsie! Krycek walks into the room, he
smelled food, he spots a box of Cheerios.
(looks at the Cheerios)
Someone with good taste.
He picks up a donut, a woman walks in the room,
it is Laurie Holden, Krycek smells her perfume, turns around to see
who is there. To his surprise, it's "Marita".
Wearing jeans and a t-shirt, hair pulled back
in a pony-tail, she just arrived from a jog ... she chugs a glass
of water, and gulps it down. Turns to Krycek, and says:
(worried about their relationship)
Marita... who's Nick?
Laurie laughs at him, pats him gently on the
Get some sleep, Nick.
Are you okay?
What did they do to you?
Are you practicing new lines?
Is there an update in the script
that I haven't gotten yet?
Ready for our hot scene?
Krycek moves closer to Laurie Holden, takes her
in his arms ... and kisses her neck.
Nick ... what are you on?!
She pushes him away. And leaves. So Krycek goes
back to the food ... he's still worried about his relationship with
Marita. In the background we hear someone enter. It is Tea Leoni,
David Duchovny's wife. Krycek turns, hoping to see "Marita"
Nick! Have you seen David?
I left him early this morning
I think he was in the room with Madeline
so I took Blue for a walk, so I decided
to come here to look for him, and
I haven't found him, and I'm hoping
that you have seen him, and what the hell
is he doing leaving without me?
Have you seen Blue? Have you seen George?
Where's Chris? He may know where he is.
Can you hand me a bottle of water?
(Krycek hands her a bottle of water)
You wouldn't believe it, traffic
was terrible this morning.
I was stuck for an hour, I hope David's
alright. What are you doing for dinner?
Maybe you can come over, my mom is in
town and she is cooking up a great Italian
dinner, and I know how much you like Italian
food, so I thought I'd ask you over. OH!
And there's a Knicks game on too, so you can
help David teach Maddy how to be a Knicks fan!!
What do you think?
Krycek just looks at her, he is still trying
to remember what her first question was, he is still confused about
what just happened with "Marita". Tea continues:
So anyways, I think I'll go find
Chris and find out if he knows
where David is. But let me know if you
are coming over. See ya!
INT. TEN-THIRTEEN PRODUCTIONS - HALLWAY - DAY
Krycek is walking in the hallway, eating a glazed
donut. He sees Mulder, and drops the donut, pulls out his gun.
Mulder doesn't notice him, until he sees his gun. Mulder is just wandering
around trying to find Sound Stage Three. He's curious as to why everyone
wants him there, and who in the world is this Chris guy, who thinks
that he can boss him around, and call him "David". He sees
Krycek. He pulls out his gun.
What's going on?!
I don't know!
Where's Sound Stage Three!
I don't know!
Put your gun away!
You pulled your gun on me,
you put it away first!
Krycek cautiously puts his gun away. Watching
Mulder the whole time. And Mulder carefully starts to put his gun
away, only to drop it ... again.
I saw Marita.
What is she doing here?
Scully was talking to Diana Fowley,
some little girl hugged my leg, Scully
told me to go to Sound Stage Three.
Do you think we're in heaven?
I mean, what if I fell
asleep driving, and we didn't
realize it, because we don't know
we're dead, and this is some weird alternate
life, or we're just hallucinating ... but
I don't know why.
Let's get out of here.
Before that psycho-man
comes to find me again.
From Krycek's POV, we see Chris Carter walking
towards them, behind Mulder, since he doesn't know that this is the
man Mulder is refering to, he doesn't say anything. Tea Leoni is with
him too. She walks up behind Mulder, and gives him a hug.
Where were you this morning?
I looked all over for you.
Where's Maddy? Don't you have her?
Who's ... Maddy?
Did you get any sleep
No, my waterbed sprung
David, we don't have a
Who is this David guy?
Why aren't you two on
Sound Stage Three?
Let's go. We've got deadlines.
Mulder and Krycek decide to follow him to Sound
Stage Three, They are curious as to what is going on.
INT. TEN-THIRTEEN PRODUCTIONS - SOUND STAGE THREE
We see the crew exiting, they are finished filming
for the day. Out walks David Duchovny and Nicholas Lea... Chris Carter
looks very confused, as does Mulder, Krycek, Tea, and the crew, including
David and Nick themselves!
(looking at Mulder)
My new stunt double?
Where's Blue, I know you
brought him with you this morning.
Everyone else is pretty quiet, not sure what
to make of all this. Tea just looks back and forth from Mulder to
David. Nick and Krycek are mimicking each other's movements, like they
are a mirror.
(to Mulder and Krycek)
Who are you guys?!
(puts out his hand)
Chris Carter doesn't shake his poor little hand.
Krycek frowns, why won't anyone shake his hand? Does he have Cooties
or something? We don't think so!! We would shake his hand any day!!
As Mulder and Krycek are being escorted out of
the building, we hear a truck horn blowing!!!!
INT. KRYCEK'S CAR - MULDER FALLING ASLEEP AT
THE WHEEL - DAY
The horn is getting louder! Krycek comes back
to reality, away from his bizarre dream, and realizes that there is
a big semi-truck coming at them. Mulder has dozed off too.
They make it out of that situation safely, but
Krycek's car is another story, as Mulder swerves into a bunch of bushes.
That was a close one.
They look at each other, and let out sighs of relief.
(at the exact same time)
I just had the weirdest dream!
