a one-scene script with Fox and Felix Fine
"Fox and Felix Fine: First Case 3" by Bill Schott


Fox: ...... average young man
Felix:..... Fox's look-alike cousin
Trent: .... airfield owner
Kay: ...... skydiving team member

Fox and Felix Fine are investigators looking for Kitty Sanders, who is a mayoral candidate and currently missing. They have twenty-four hours to find her. Their only clue is her being seen going to a skydiving club.

The scene is in a hangar. Fox and Felix are standing across from two other characters.

Fox: (talking to Trent) So the field was open and there were several planes and skydivers active this week.

Trent: I didn't say any of those things.

Felix: So the field was closed?

Trent: No, we were open Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, and, as you can see, we are open today.

Felix: So, Rent, you say you weren't open all week, just most of it?

Trent: We we're ope -- uh -- my name is Trent.

Felix: Great, Terrance; my name's Felix the Fixer and I can smell a sack a crap a mile away. 

Trent: That's a rare talent, Fleaflicker. I can only smell a sack of crap (
stretching his arm out towards Felix as a measure) this far away.

Fox: (
grinning) He's funny, Felix.

Felix: Funny lookin', for sure.

Trent: I don't have to talk to you people.

Felix jabs Trent in the solar plexus, dropping him to his knees with a stunned expression.

Felix: He is indeed funny. (turning towards the woman next to the crumpled Trent) So, Filet--

Kay: It's Kay.

Felix: Whatever.

Kay: Please don't hurt me.

Felix: I don't --

The woman quickly spun counter-clockwise while leaping to deliver a roundhouse kick to Felix's head. 

Felix: (smiling while leaning back slightly as the woman's foot passed by) Swing battah!

Dropping to the hangar floor, the woman's spin continued into a leg sweep which ended with Felix's steel-toed shoe connecting with her sad and wiser shin. The woman gasped out an ouch/arrggg sound and remained on the floor.

Felix: I think we hit a nerve here, Foxenheimer.

Fox: They do seem guilty of something.

Trent: You attacked us.

Felix: Tell me what happened to Titty Scanners?

Trent: Who?

Fox: Kitty Sanders.

Kay: We don't know her.

Felix: You threw her out of a plane; didn't you?

Kay: We would never do that. We love Kitty.

Fox: You said you didn't know her.

Felix: She's no better at lying than she is at fighting.

Fox: Where is Kitty?

Trent: She hasn't been here in months. 

Felix: You lie like a pig on an apple cart.

Fox: Such a liar. C'mon, Trent. We know she was here on Thursday -- when you say you were closed. 

Trent: We were closed. No one was here. 

Fox turns to Kay, still on the floor.

Fox Looks like Trent is in the dark, Kay. It's up to you to help us find Kitty. 

Felix:  If you won't help us, there's really no reason for us to keep you alive.

To be continued...
