Scénariste : Paul Lieberman
Réalisateur : Peter Lauer

Durée : 43 min 

(voix off)Comment avançons-nous dans la vie? Nos choix sont peut être aussi importants que la direction où nous allons. Qui n’a jamais dit «c'est le voyage qui compte et non la destination», n'a jamais pris le bus... Prendre le bus c’est comme purger une peine de prison : les libertés y sont systématiquement dépouillées, votre liberté de parole, liberté d’information, la liberté de l'odorat. De quoi donner envie de mourir... sauf si on est déjà mort...

George se retrouve dans un bus bondé, avec du bruit, des odeurs de transpiration et une petite tête blonde lui renverse son jus d’orange sur son manteau... La journée commence mal.

(waffle haus) Reuben se fait aider par George sur un mot croisé, quand Daisy lui demande quel est ce nouveau parfum qu’elle porte... (fragrance jus d’orange!) George clame à quel point elle déteste le bus. Mason, Daisy et Reuben y vont de leurs idées pour aider George (qu’elle vole une voiture, prenne un vélo...) Arrive la distribution des post it, Mason se retrouve avec 2 morts au même endroit, mais à des heures différentes ... que va-t-il faire entre les 2, surtout sachant qu’il n’apprécie pas le quartier! Pas de post it pour George, Reuben lui conseille de régler son problème de transport...

George se souvient de son premier vélo, et de ce qu’elle a dit à sa mère une fois qu’elle a su en faire seule... quel caractère déjà petite!!!! 

(Chez les Lass) Reggie et sa mère prennent un petit déjeuner, Joy demande a son mari si elles auront le plaisir de le voir pour le diner ce soir... à priori non.... la tension est palpable.

(Happy time) Grâce à un collègue,Josh, George apprend qu’une entreprise qui paie mieux cherche quelqu’un. Elle postule donc. Quand elle apprend à Dolores son désir de quitter l’entreprise très très prochainement celle-ci a du mal à cacher sa déception et sa tristesse.

(Chez les Lass) Joy papote avec JD, le chien, elle est souriante jusqu’au moment où celui-ci s’échappe...

Daisy arrive dans un espèce d’entrepôt, elle est à la recherche de l’âme qu’elle doit faucher. Elle découvre Chris un jeune peintre, elle essaye de lui acheter un tableau, mais celui-ci refuse catégoriquement, son art ne se vend pas. Une fois la mort arrivée (le pauvre est victime d’un empoisonnement en buvant son eau de rinçage des pinceaux...) Daisy file avec le tableau sur lequel elle a craqué! 

(Happy time) George sent tout les regards portés sur elle, Dolores est en pleine effervescence et tout le monde l’aide à préparer le pot de départ en l’honneur de George, quand celle ci essaye d’expliquer à Dolores pourquoi elle ne veux pas de petite fête, celle ci lui dit qu’happy time est une grande famille et qu’ils sont triste de la voir partir... et George commence à prendre conscience  que ses collègues se sentent vraiment chez eux dans cette entreprise. Une collègue (Stéphanie) qu’elle n’a jamais vu vient lui apporter un carton pour ranger ses affaire et lui souhaiter bonne continuation mais qu’elle manquera à Happy time... George est abasourdie par toute cette sympathie.

Reggie et sa mère cherche Jd partout, Joy s’en veut mais sa fille la rassure en lui disant que ce n’est pas de sa faute. 

Pour faucher ses deux âmes, Mason explique qu’il aurait un sondage à remplir pour une étude de marché, il découvre que ses 2 âmes sont un couple d’homosexuel (Michaël et Henry) , ils l’invitent à entrer charmés par son côté «english».

(Happy time) c’est l’heure de la fête!!! George se force à sourire et faire bonne figure... mais le coeur n’y est pas du tout.

(Chez le peintre) Daisy repart avec le tableau sous la main, mais Chris la suit à la trace, il veut qu’elle remette son tableau en place! Daisy appelle Reuben...

(Mason) Toujours avec son sondage, Mason continue de discuter avec le couple, une question lui brûle les lèvres, il ose la poser avec son tact habituel « lequel des 2 joue la femme dans le couple??» il s’en suit une conversation plus détendu, Mason se sent à l’aise.

(Waffle Haus) Daisy explique à Reuben que l’âme de ce peintre ne la lâche plus, elle lui dit qu’il a sûrement craqué sur elle.... Quand Rub va parler à Chris il comprend que Daisy a encore fait des siennes et il lui conseille de se dépatouiller de cette situation toute seule!!!

(Maison des Lass) Clancy rentre dans la journée, il ne voit pas Jd et il trouve Reggie en train de dessiner un chien sous lequel elle écrit en gros «LOST» ... 

(Mason) Mason s’est fait invité a déjeuner par ses nouveaux amis, il aura bien du mal à récolter l’âme de Michaël ...

Une brêve apparition des Lass qui sont dans leur voiture pour placarder des affiches de Jd... ils parlent divorce...

(Happy time) La fête continue, George est à l’écart... elle ne participe pas malgré toutes les gentillesses de ses collègues! 

(Waffle Haus) Daisy ne renonce pas et souhaite garder la peinture, Chris pense qu’elle ne comprend pas du tout ce qu’est l’art...

(Happy time) George reste à l’écart, Stéphanie danse seule dans un couloir... Crystal boit des petits verre culs sec.... quelle ambiance! 

Mason est prêt du corps de Michael, il explique à Henry qu’il est mort, alors que Michael demande à Mason de rassurer son ami, celui ci s’apprête à avouer qu’il n’est pas là pour un sondage....

(Happy time) Josh explique à George que Dolores est vraiment déçue de ce départ... et George commence à le réaliser mais un peu tard, Dolores est vexée manque d’enthousiasme de George et par dessus tout Stéphanie a disparue... et il ne faut pas la laisser seule!!!!! 

C’est le moment des recherches, les Lass cherchent Jd, peu de communication entre Clancy et Joy,George cherche Stéphanie qui se cache sous un bureau... George va réussir à la faire sortir de sa cachette...

Alors quHenry arrive avec son plus beau costume et prend un couteau ... pour rejoindre l’amour de sa vie, Michael supplie Mason de lui suggérer de prendre des pilules plutôt... Henry remercie Mason pour son aide... Mason prend son âme et il en reste très bouleversé, il repart avec une montre que Michael lui laisse en cadeau.

(Happy time) George revient avec Stéphanie sous les applaudissements de tout le monde, Dolores est vraiment peinée de son départ.

(Waffle Haus) Daisy contemple son tableau quand Mason arrive, il lui tend les clé de sa maison et lui explique qu’elle et George ont besoin de plus de place, il prendra le petit appart des filles en échange. Daisy ne refuse pas... et elle demande à Mason s’il est gay lorsqu’elle voit sa nouvelle montre..

(Happy time) George reçoit un cadeau de la part de ses collègues et Dolores fait un discours, qu’elle ne peut pas finir... le départ de sa protégée la bouleverse trop. Une fois la fête finie, George jette un dernier coup d’oeil à Happy time, Dolores range...

Daisy prend possession de sa nouvelle maison, Chris persiste et lui explique qu’il a mis 2 ans à faire cette peinture, qu’elle a une signification... Daisy entrevoit ce qu’il veut dire, puis il part. Il décide que le tableau est pour elle finalement...

le lendemain George se réveille sur une banquette de la maison de la gaufre, elle voit l’heure et fonce à son nouveau travail... Un bureau exigu, sans fenêtre avec un seul collègue qui ne communique que via des mails... George tient a peine 5 minutes et claque la porte non sans avoir envoyer un mail... «F--K you Fingerman!» .... 

(Waffle Haus)  George est avec Reuben, plus de job et pas d’argent... mais de bonnes surprises l’attendent, Rub lui offre un vélo, et il lui donne un post it avec sa nouvelle adresse!!! Elle y fonce et est très étonnée de voir Daisy si sympathique (les paroles du peintres auraient-elles portées leur fruits?)

Lors d’une ballade à vélo George retrouve Jd, elle le ramène (pendant ce temps Joy fait les devoirs avec sa fille et Clancy n’est pas décidé à l’aider!) Quand Jd revient c’est l’euphorie et Clancy critique sa femme pour l’avoir perdu... Reggie le stoppe. 

George sur son vélo se dit que demain elle retournera à Happy time pour récupérer son ancien poste... elle pense que Dolores acceptera sans problème.. Daisy accroche le tableau au dessus de la cheminée.

(voix off) Peut être qu’au final même si on ne sait pas de quoi notre avenir sera fait, comment sera notre maison... l’important est plutôt la façon la manière dont on l’aménage, c’est à nous de construire notre vie... ou notre mort...

(Woman talking frantically)

GEORGE(VO) How we chose to physically move through life is maybe as
important as where we go.
who ever first said "it's the journey and not the destination", never took
the bus. One
meaning of the word mute is to shorten a prison sentence. Commuting is a
prison sentance.
Freedoms are being systematically stripped away, your freedom of speech,
freedom of
information, freedom of smell. I would be enough to kill me if  wern't
already dead

(Woman carries on talking. Toddler pours juice onto Georges lap)

RUBE: Where the heart is in Honduras. four
GEORGE: Casa
RUBE: Nice work peanut
DAISY: Georgia, are you wearing a fragrance this morning?
GEORGE: It's orange juice. I hate the bus
RUBE: Public transportation is the great equalizer
GEORGE: I wanna be equal, fuck equal
MASON: Steal a car
DAISY: What about a bicycle? I once had the Dorothy's original bike from
Wizard of Oz.
       I knew someone from the props department
MASON: Dont you mean you blew somebody from the props department?
DAISY: Knew blew, tomato, tomahto. Once baby Judy died I didn't want to ride
it any more.

JOSH: Ah I was going to say I saw a new posting for a great gig. Pays really
well. You'll get that bike in a few weeks
GEORGE: Why wouldn't you take the job?
JOSH: I just got here so. They are looking for someone slightly more
seniority. someone slightly cuter, I guess.(he pulls away from the cubicle
again)
GEORGE: Oh wait a minute. Can you show me the web page with the posting?
JOSH: Sure I'm Josh

(They shakes hand. Speed cameras to Delores with George Standing in front of
her)

DELORES: Im not certain that I understand you Milly. youve already contacted
the employer
GEORGE: Oh, I didn't Josh called them
DOLORES: Who is Josh? Never mind.What did the employer say?
GEORGE: Yes
DOLORES: Yes what?
GEORGE: He said yes I'm hired. I didn't do anything. Josh did everything
DOLORES: Does Josh know you that you are a valuble employee at happy time?
GEORGE: That's very nice of you Dolores, but I thought I'd just look for
something a little more         living wagish. Like I wanna buy a bike
DOLORES: I wanna ride in the Kentucky Derby but you don't see me racing
silks do you?. Well when do they want you to begin?
GEORGE: Tommorrow
DOLORES: Tommorrow? Huh Interesting! Well G.F.Y Good for you. Looks like

Transition
Daisy walking down the steps of a studio apartment where a painter is
painting

DAISY: Hello. C Friedman?
CHRIS: It's Chris
DAISY: Well good morning Chris
CHRIS: How did you get in here?
DAISY: Took the stairs silly
CHRIS: And you are?
DAISY: Well I am Daisy, Daisy Adaire. I'm a patron of the arts
CHRIS: Oh that's too bad
DAISY: Now how on earth could meeting me be bad?
CHIS: Because the people who call themselves patron generally only want to
talk only about how much a painting is worth, rather than what they see,
feel
DAISY: Wouldn't one consider both?Art and value? sounds reasonable enough
CHRIS: Nothing about painting is reasonable
DAISY: Huh (walks to the painting) How much?
CHRIS: How much. as in how much did I want to paint that. How much pain was
I in when I painted doing it, how much joy was I was done? Is that what you
mean?
DAISY: Yeah. How much?
Chris: It's not for sale
DAISY: well didn't you gallery set a price
CHRIS: I don't have a gallery.
DAISY: That's ridiculous. You work is pretty good. I mean it could sell
CHRIS: That's not why I do it. Besides the greusome truth is that nothing
ever sells until the artist kicks it
DAISY: Huh
CHRIS: I dont mean to be rude, but I need to get back to work. I'm sorry I
can't sell you anything
DAISY: These things have a way of sorting themselves out
(Puts out her hand and he kisses it, the soul is taken. She walks away.
Taking a sip of his drink he paints again. A graveling comes in and swaps
the drink and the paint turps that is next to it. He drinks the turps, amkes
gagging noises and falls to the floor dead (Daisy stops walking up the
stairs)
DAISY: (sighs)I like that painting (goes back for it.)

GEORGE (VO) Suddenly this was it. Moving day and everyone seemed to know.
Cake requests? Yes. Let there be no cake

DELORES: If you can make a giant sandwich why cant you make a giant Caisa
dia........ and give me some prices on renting a burro. Stephanie can you
pass out the party memos. Talk to her Neldo, get back to me pronto. Tell him
it's Dolores from Happy Time and I will eat his balls for breakfast if he
disappoints me. Oh phil, pick up the cake at four and I will reimburse you
from petty cash. Marge, here's the keys to the store room, pinata on the
third shelf.

(George walks up to Dolores's desk)
GEORGE: I don't want a party
DELORES: Well Milly you are going away and that merits a going away party
GEORGE: It's just that it's really unessessary
DOLORES: You're a member of the Happy Time family. Happy Time has been youre
home
I don't know if I could actually call it home
(spitefully) Obviously you don't(nervously laugh, cracking smile) Not any
more. And we'll all miss you (Dolores puts her head down to say that the
conversation has finished, George walks away)

cuts to
(VO)I haven't been able to Happy time home but other people didn't seem to
have a problem. I guess making work like home made work feel a little like
work.

STEPHANIE: This is for your stuff
GEORGE: Thanks
