IN BLACKNESS:

KEITH

(groggy)

Uhhh…

What’s going on?

More groggy moans…

Mick

Keith, is that you…?

Where…?

A BRIGHT SPOTLIGHT SUDDENLY BURSTS ON, revealing the Rolling Stones back-to-back and tied to the chairs they are seated in.

Mick

What the bloody hell?!

With no warning Mick is electrocuted with a couple of seconds of high-voltage…

ELEANOR (O. S.)

Watch your tongue, Mickey.

You’ve always had a potty mouth.

The only thing that can be made out in the surrounding darkness is a bunch of little silhouettes.

KEITH

What do you want then?!

Keith is the next to receive some electricity…

ELEANOR (O. S.)

Mind your manners.

Do not speak in the spoken to.

(Beat)

Each of you have one of them little

electrical doodle thingies

attached to your little birds nest there.

Do as you’re told, no worries.

Disobey, your little tadpoles get a little fryin’.

Welcome to The Golden Years cruise.

EXT. OCEAN – DAY

A cruise ship sails across a wide open ocean…

INT.. CRUISE SHIP – CONTINUOUS

Extreme close-up, a pair of hands play the ivory keys of a piano.

Dressed like white boys visiting Kokomo The Rolling Stones perform for a deck full of little old ladies.

LYRICS

(Mick singing)

You don’t have to mean it

You just got to say it anyway

I just need to hear those words for me

Baby… Baby… Baby

You don’t have to say too much

Babe I wouldn’t even touch it anyway

I just want to hear you say to me

Feeling half their age the old gals swoon in giddiness while sipping on tropical drinks.

LYRICS

(Stones singing)

Sweet lies

Dripping from your lips

Ooh…ya

Sweet sighs

One of them, probably Eleanor, starts to shyly dance towards Mick, who indulges her in a little flirtation.

LYRICS

(Stones singing)

Say to me come on and play

Play with me baby

You don’t have to mean it

You just got to say it to me baby

Whisper

Whisper

Whisper in my ear

(I don’t believe it)

(I don’t believe it)

The other golden girls see this as an opportunity to mingle with them as well.

Mick serenades another…

LYRICS

(Stones singing)

I wouldn’t want to use you

Ooh I wouldn’t blame you anyway

If you never ever spoke to me

(I don’t believe it)

And another, this time doing a little dance with the lucky gal.

LYRICS

(Stones singing)

Hmmm just say those little words

Sit on my shoulder like a little bird

Baby baby sing those words for me

Being the gracious frontman he is, Mick spots an elder in a wheelchair and makes his way over to give her some special attention…

LYRICS

(Stones singing)

Sweet lies

Baby baby

Dripping from your lips

Sweet sighs

Ooh you make me cry

Baby baby baby

You know it

You know what I want to hear

Dripping from your lips

I got to tell you baby

Dripping from your lips

You don’t have to say too much

Whisper

Whisper

Baby baby

I just wanna

Here you say to me

Back with his band Mick and The Rolling Stones continue to perform with engaging charisma for their little old admirers/hostage takers…

LYRICS

(Stones singing)

(I don’t believe it)

You don’t have to mean it

Babe just say it anyway

I just need to

Hear those

Words from your sweet lips

You don’t have to mean it

You don’t have to mean it

(I don’t believe you)

You don’t have to shout across the room

sSmooth crane up and out to extreme wide shot until…

LYRICS

(Stones singing)

Just whisper in my ear baby…
