FADE IN:
INT. NETWORK PRESIDENT'S OFFICE - DAY
CHARLIE enters the office, with tears in her eyes. She walks to her desk and sits.

CHARLIE
(sighs)
What do I do now?

The phone rings. CHARLIE then picks up the phone.

CHARLIE
Hello? Yes, this is she.

She frowns.

CHARLIE
Seriously?

LEAH then enters the scene. She carries a stack of papers. CHARLIE hangs up the phone.

LEAH
I know you are frustrated over this court case.

CHARLIE
Why wouldn't I be? She has been terrorizing the office ever since Ash resigned.

LEAH
(with a sad look)
What are you going to do now?

CHARLIE
I have no idea. We got dirt on her to get her to confess.

CHARLIE then grabs a baseball bat. LEAH then frowns.

LEAH
What now?

CHARLIE
I guess you may have to call her bluff.

LEAH
(sighs)
That may not be such a bad idea.

CHARLIE
But how? If I result to violence like I am planning on doing, imagine if I was held in contempt of court.

LEAH
(laughs)
Oh Charlie. I am sure the old Charlie won't mind using that baseball bat on crazy people even if it kills her.


CUT TO:
INT. CONFERENCE ROOM - DAY
JESSE and KASEY face each other. They are holding stacks of papers.

JESSE
I am sure you know about the lawsuit against us.

KASEY
Affirmative.

JESSE
(with a sigh)
I don’t know how we can survive this lawsuit. We’re not even prepared to face the wrath of Carolyn.

KASEY
Don’t worry, Jesse. Charlie can handle her own.

KASEY gives the stack of papers to JESSE, and he places them on the table.

JESSE
(sighs)
I am really worried about what is going to happen next. I am also really worried about you and the baby.

KASEY
(with a smile)
Oh Jesse. You always go out of your way to make sure we are all okay.

JESSE then feels KASEY’s belly.

CUT TO:
INT. COURTROOM HALLWAY - AN HOUR LATER
LEAH, CHARLIE, KASEY, JESSE, and MATT assemble in the courtroom, with stacks of papers in JESSE’s hand. CHARLIE frowns, carrying a baseball bat.

CHARLIE
(in frustration)
Come on guys, we can do this. We can put this b**** in her place.

A voice lurks in the distance.

VOICE
What the f*** did you just say?

CAROLYN enters the scene. She is furious.

CHARLIE
Oh hello Carolyn. Long time no see.

CAROLYN
Long time, my a**. This network is going down. You can’t defend my ex any longer.

CHARLIE
You are delusional. And a f****** liar, too. I have proof of your arrest.

CAROLYN
(evil laugh)
Oh really? Do you really believe what the internet tells you? This is all fake news.

KASEY and MATT face each other.

KASEY
(gasps)
Oh God, she is crazy.

MATT
Don’t remind me.

CHARLIE grabs her baseball bat and attempts to swing it. CAROLYN then dodges forward with a lunge.

CAROLYN
Oh you want to try me? I’ll tell you what it is. You have a pregnant sl** working at your network. You have a timid dog who cheats on every b****.

JESSE
(enraged)
That’s it. Don’t you dare speak about my girlfriend like that! Don’t you dare try to degrade this network in this courtroom.
(to CHARLIE)
Charlie, I’ll give you permission to beat her a**.

CHARLIE
Gladly.

CHARLIE swings her bat again and successfully hits CAROLYN’s neck. CAROLYN falls to the floor, but gets back up. Then CAROLYN attempts to body slam CHARLIE, but is stopped by JESSE. CAROLYN breaks free, slaps JESSE, and then grabs a portrait on the wall.

CAROLYN
Think you can try me?

CHARLIE
Oh no you don’t!

CHARLIE proceeds to slap CAROLYN as hard as she can. CAROLYN breathes quickly and heavily.

CAROLYN
Please don’t hurt me.

CHARLIE
You better think before you trash network headquarters with your dirty a** lies. I know your criminal history.

CAROLYN
Does that even matter when my ex is the one getting sued?

CHARLIE
No, it doesn’t. But you lied. Perjury is a serious offense.

CHARLIE then grabs a hold of CAROLYN.

CHARLIE
Next time you come through headquarters trying to terrorize this network and his wife, you will not hear the end of this from me. Am I clear?

CAROLYN
(timidly afraid)
But...but...but...the evidence!

CHARLIE
Everyone knows it has been fabricated. You are the one with the domestic violence charges.

With the hold still on CAROLYN, a SECURITY GUARD walks by and enters the scene.

SECURITY GUARD
Ladies! No fighting in this court.

LEAH
(angered)
Don’t you realize this b**** tried to terrorize me and my husband with false accusations?

SECURITY GUARD
No excuses. Break it up or the judge will hold all of you for contempt of court.

Everyone froze.

FADE OUT
