Episode #7: “Pants Versus P22”

EXT. GRIFFITH PARK – SUNSET

PANTS is walking one of the Griffith Park trails when he comes across the mountain lion known as P22.

After a moment.

PANTS
So you’re P22. I’ve seen you on the news. I’ve seen photos you on Facebook. I hear you have a Twitter account.

PANTS and P22 hold their ground.

PANTS
You think you’re so tough. Roaming the hills of Los Angeles while other mountain lions roam the wilderness. They face serious predators. What’s your biggest foe? Metro-sexual hikers and Botox “triple threat” bimbos. Where you headed now? Into the city to hunt a kitten or a poodle? Hey, I hear there are wild coyotes around here. Granted they make an anorexic look obese but I’m sure you can handle them. I shouldn’t laugh. After all you evade the “Griffith Park Rangers”. They’re a formidable enemy. I hear they captured a raccoon recently.

P22 flicks its tail.

After a silence.

PANTS
Well? What do you have to say for yourself?
P22
What I really want to do is direct.
PANTS
I knew it!
