FADE IN:

INT, DUNGEON – NIGHT

Slowly entering an underground chamber we soon discover that it’s lit only by flames.

Torches here and there.

A large fireplace.

Candles.

We come to the center of the stone dwelling. A roundtable where a poker game takes place. On one side sits a tall domineering woman dressed in red lingerie, on the other side, Brian, shrunk down in his chair tightly holding his playing cards.

Above the table, a chandelier of more burning candles.

Around the table Angus, Malcolm and Cliff cautiously encircle the two gamblers while PLAYING their GUITARS.

Phil is supplying the BEAT in the background, set up in front of the large fireplace.

Cowering behind his hand of cards, Brian looks at what he’s got.

 

LYRICS

(Brian singing)

She gave me the Queen

she gave me the King

Then peers over them to the seductive Amazon across from him.

 

LYRICS

(Brian singing)

She was wheelin’ and dealin’

just doin’ her thing

Close-up, her monstrous bosom.

 

LYRICS

She was holdin’ a pair

 

Brian sits up straight.

 

LYRICS

But I had to try

Holding up his hand he takes his time placing it on the table, staring her down as he does so.

 

LYRICS

Her deuce was wild

 

Confident, he smiles big.

 

LYRICS

But my ace was high

 

The tower of lady is unmoved, placing her cards on the table one by one as her eyes stay locked on his.

 

LYRICS

But how was I to know

that she’d been dealt with before

Said she’d never had a full house

 

Brian’s bright smile turns into an ‘ah shit’ look as he looks down to see he’s lost the hand.

 

LYRICS

But I should have known

 

Extreme close-up, tattoo on gal’s left leg; a pitchfork

 

LYRICS

From the tattoo on her left leg

 

Close-up, the garter on her right leg holds in place a wicked looking dagger.

 

LYRICS

to the garter on her right

 

The scary chick holds up four man-sized dog collars…

 

LYRICS

She’d have the card

to bring me down

 

And smiles.

 

LYRICS

If she played it right

 

Still playing while encircling the table the three guitarists each take their turn approaching their new master for a collar to be placed around their neck.

 

Angus approaches.

 

LYRICS

(chanting)

She’s got the Jack

 

And big Mama locks the collar into place.

 

LYRICS

(chanting)

She’s got the Jack

 

Malcolm approaches.

 

LYRICS

(chanting)

She’s got the Jack

 

Collar into place.

 

LYRICS

(chanting)

She’s got the Jack

 

Cliff.

 

LYRICS

(chanting)

She’s got the Jack

 

Collar.

 

LYRICS

She’s got the Jack

 

Looking back at Phil, the dangerous diva throws a collar to him like a frisbee and he catches it in his mouth like a dog, all while never missing a BEAT.

 

LYRICS

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

 

His head tilted down while staring at the table before him Brian just sits there as his bandmates, one by one with their continuous rotating, look down at him warning… (Each time they say “Jack” it’s like they’re barking it out)

 

LYRICS

(chanting)

She’s got the Jack

Jack Jack Jack

Jack Jack Jack

She’s got the Jack

 

DURING INSTRUMENTAL SECTION Brian takes a break before the next hand while his mates do their encircling and the stone-faced Card Shark Queen patiently watches from across the table.

Nervous, he sits in his chair…

  • Wiping the sweat from his face.
  • Drinking a glass of water.
  • Stroking his neck, where the dog collar could end up.
  • Loosening himself up by doing a few upper body stretches (rotating his neck… Extending an arm while locking the elbow with the other hand… Vice versa… Clenching his fingers in rotation… Interlacing them and extending his arms out in front of him in reverse…)

 

DISSOLVE TO:

 

Another hand, the merciless broad dealing cards to Brian.

 

LYRICS

(Brian singing)

Poker face was her name

Poker face was her nature

 

He looks at what he’s got, then his eyes shift over to her.

 

LYRICS

(Brian singing)

Poker straight was her game

if she knew she could get you

 

She’s expressionless. Can go either way.

 

LYRICS

She played ‘em fast

and she played ‘em hard

 

Brian, taking his time.

 

LYRICS

(Brian singing)

She could close her eyes

and feel every card

 

Complexed, his eyes widen at the site in front of him…

 

LYRICS

But how was I to know

 

Close-up, those boobs got horns coming out the sides!

 

LYRICS

That she’d been shuffled before

 

Tilting up to her face…

She also now has a set of horns protruding from her head.

 

LYRICS

Said she’d never had a royal flush

 

She smiles.

 

LYRICS

But I should’ve known

 

Brian leans to the side to see what’s at her back…

 

LYRICS

That all the cards were comin’

 

A long-thorned tail snaking around as if it has a mind of its own.

 

LYRICS

From the bottom of the pack

 

Mouth agape, Brian’s five cards fall from his hand.

 

LYRICS

And if I’d known what she was dealin’ out

 

She-Devil places her winning hand down on the table.

 

LYRICS

I’d have dealt it back

 

DISSOLVE TO:

 

Shrunken down to the size of pixies the band performs on the stoned foreground of the huge fireplace, gigantic flames dancing at their back and chains attached to the dog collars around their necks.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

and who knows what else?

 

Right after that last line an angry flame shoots down toward Brian, with it barely missing him.

They continue.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

She’s got the Jack

Yeah yeah

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

Jack Jack Jack Jack Jack Jack

She’s got the Jack

 

DISSOLVE TO:

 

Caged like birds the band sits in their small prison depressed, hanging above the soul taker’s chamber. (Brian in foreground, legs dangling between the metal bars, his mates in background, looking up to chant “Jack”)

 

LYRICS

(singing)

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

Ooh it was a bad deal

(Jack)

She gave me the

(Jack)

Hey

She’s got the

(Jack)

She’s got the

(Jack)

She’s got the

(Jack)

Ooh can’t you tell

She’s got the

(Jack)

Rising his head from his depressed slumber Brian notices something down below…

He jumps up, as do the others who rush to his side, and they all begin to yell down to…

The band known as Pink Floyd, who take their seats around the table as they join She-Devil, not hearing the warning coming from above.

 

LYRICS

(chanting)

Jack Jack Jack Jack Jack Jack Jack

(She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack)

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

You never know

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

She’s got the Jack

And it hurts

(She’s got the Jack)

 

Jumping up and down and banging on the cage bars the band does their best to get the other band’s attention.

 

LYRICS

(chanting)

Jack Jack Jack

Jack Jack Jack

She’s got the Jack

 

But it’s no use. They can’t be heard as the dealing starts.

 

LYRICS

(Brian yelling)

Aaaaaah!

 

DISSOLVE TO:

 

The half Devil/half babe towering on a stage with pitchfork in hand, rising fire at her back.

 

LYRICS

Ooooooh!

 

A puff of smoke engulfs her and she disappears into it.

Little pixie Brian walks out to the edge of a stage and paces back and forth as he holds a top hat out to an unseen audience, coins being tossed into it.

 

LYRICS

Thank you Thank you Thank you people

Good night and God bless
