INT. OFFICE - DAY
Closeup on an itchy, irritated skin. Visible insect bites blemish the otherwise smooth skin as fingernails vigorously scratch across the skin.
SFX: FINGERNAILS SCRATCHING
Frustration mounts as the scratching only makes things worse.
CLERK
Oh my god, these mosquito bites… I'm going crazy!
A neighboring clerk hears the anquish and pops over.
CLERK 2
Have you ever tried aloe vera for rashes?
CLERK
No. Do you have some?
CLERK 2
Not here. I can bring you a plant tomorrow if you like.
CLERK
Okay. Uh, will it work on mosquito bites?
CLERK 2
Let me see.
The frustrated clerk shows various pin points on arm and legs where affected areas have become irritated.
CLERK 2
Are you sure they're mosquito bites?
CLERK
What else?
CLERK 2
Fleas. They could be fleas.
CLERK
I don't have a dog.
CLERK 2
A cat?
CLERK
Nope. No cat. I have fish…
CLERK 2
Heh. Maybe it's Memphis.
This prompts the clerk to look under her desk. She produces Memphis, a black & white tomcat. She coddles it while cossetting broken sentences of fleas and other bloodsucking parasites. Donna happens by and takes notice of the unusual pampering.
DONNA
Did M and M catch a mouse or something?
CLERK
No, I've been getting the brunt of her fleas. I must've forgot to give her her smear of advantage. Would you do me a favor?
DONNA
Oh no.
CLERK
Oh, c'mon. I know you have a cat at home. It's not like I'm asking you to buy the stuff. I just haven't had any time to do it.
DONNA
Do it now.
CLERK
Can't. I have revisions to do for the printers and I still haven't finished some ads. Please.
Donna sighs and reaches out for the cat. In that, the cat leaps out of the clerk's arms and scatters away.
CLERK
Memphis! Oh well, now I really can't. Let me give you a tube before you catch her.
DONNA
Him.
CLERK
Her, him. The feline. I owe you one, okay Donna?
FADE TO
INT. DIFFERENT PART OF OFFICE - DAY
With tube in hand, Donna wanders about the office searching under chairs and tables for the cat. Memphis finds a quiet spot in a newsprint room near an air vent.
She struggles with the feisty cat. See storyboard
