Santa terminates Rudolph
"Rudolph's Carribean Christmas" by Brett Matthew West



Rudolph's Caribbean Christmas

FRIDAY - AFTERNOON - SANTA'S OFFICE AT THE NORTH POLE

FADE IN:

Santa: The reason I called you into my office, Rudolph, is because I have something to tell you my friend, and I'm afraid the news is not good.

Rudolph: What's up, Santa?

Santa (breathes a heavy sigh): With the recent government meltdown, and less demand for toys this year, the company's cash flow isn't coming in. So, I'm going to have to let you go.

Rudolph: Let me go? You mean as in I no longer work here at the North Pole? Santa, if this is about that unfortunate incident in the workshop...

Santa (dejected): Ho. Ho. Ho. Believe me, old boy, your termination is nothing personal. The truth is you're my highest paid employee and I can no longer afford your luxurious lifestyle.

Rudolph (puffs his chest out and boasts): I'm your most famous reindeer of all.

Santa: That's what makes this so much harder for me, Rudolph.

Rudolph: You're serious? I thought you were joking.

Santa: This is indeed an unpleasant situation. I tried to reason with the elves about how valuable you are to the team. But, they made their decision, one I must abide by under the terms of this new merger we were forced to enter.

Rudolph: No more raspberry Slurpees?

Santa: Don't misunderstand me, Rudolph, you've served me well for eons. I hope there's no hard feelings over this.

Rudolph: Oh no, Santa. There's no hard feelings. Not at all. Now, I can take that Caribbean Christmas vacation I've always dreamed about. You know, fun in the sun, lounging by the pool, sipping Pina Coladas all day long. Flying up on housetops is a younger reindeer's game. You're doing me a major favor by letting me go. These blizzards we've been having, and this cold weather, ain't good for this reindeer's creaky ole bones.

(Santa hugs Rudolph's neck)

Santa: Thanks for understanding.

Rudolph: Free at long last. I'm outta here!

(Rudolph exits Santa's office. He meets Donner and Blitzen outside. They look at him with questioned expressions on their faces)

Blitzen: What did the Old Man want with you, Red-Nose? Bet he read you the riot act over your escapade in the workshop. (Laughs).

Donner (concerned): Nothin' any good ever comes outta those meetin's.

Rudolph: I'm off to Belize.

Blitzen (in disbelief): Belize?

Rudolph: Yep, Santa no longer needs my services and laid me off. So, cheerio, mates! Catch you later. Don't let the Fat Sprite work you too hard.

(He flies South. Donner and Blitzen watch him leave.)

Narrator: 'twas a sad day in Toyland.

FADE OUT:

(To BE CONTINUED)
