Act 2: scene1
Beverlyhillslasikdoc :welcome Charlie and Chuck. Good to see you.
I am cognizant of both your view points. It’s like this. Charlie you are saying the glass is half full and chuck you insist it is half empty.now both of you are right. You will have to envision the truth from different perspective. You both agree there is water in the glass, correct?
Beverlyhillslasikdoc : (stroking his greying beard) ah, so we all agree.Now if you guys stop living in the seventies and start seeing things as they are in the 21st century, we will be able to be happy.
Charlie: you the man, doc!
Beverlyhillslasikdoc:for starters, both of you have to loose these visual crutches from the previous century- glasses. You need clear sparkling vision, with no glasses either for distance or near.
Chuk:is this even possible? Even in Jetsons they wear glasses.
Beverlyhillslasikdoc: that proves Ruth is better than fiction, or medicin is advancing faster than what Hollywood can concot.
Charlie: cool man.
Beverlyhillslasikdoc: have you seen Butch Patrick from the munsters wear glasses? Surely you remember him as the kid with funny mark on his forehead. He got his mark before Harry potter was even conceived.
Chuck and Charlie: no (in unison)- but I am afraid!
Beverlyhillslasikdoc : (scratching his bald head) fear is the key!-as Alister Maclean Nicely put it. Fear stems from ignorance.no. Ignorance is not bliss. And fear stems from not having the power to replace things we currently enjoy. Charlie, you are fearful that after 2 and 1/2 men you may not be able to deliver another hit! You have poured your entire life story into this one sitcom. Where are you going to get another life story from?
Beverlyhillslasikdoc : chuck, you are scared that, that golden spooned Charlie may suddenly jump back to movies, or disappear leaving you stranded with no show. So in your mind you are already living that truth and moved to m&m.
Chuck: that’s insightful
Beverlyhillslasikdoc : and in your minds each is thinking I can do better than the other. Chuck, u feel you could have enacted charlie’s role and sheen you believe you can write these shows.
Beverlyhillslasikdoc : so we will work out a plan where we address your fears about life, vision correction and tv shows.
See you tomorrow.
This hasn’t happened, yet!
Setting : Malibu beach house
Charlie:I am so fed up of untalented folks trying to prove themselves better than me. What is their problem if I drink or smoke? They are plain jealous that I know how to enjoy life.Don’t I have problems? My whole life I have been trying to prove myself, to come out from my fathers shadow! And yes to gain My dad’s attention and love . Is anything wrong with that? I felt so dejected me when he reported me for parole violation. Everyone is fixated on Charlie! No one tries to understand Carlos. Even the women I fell in love with, were actually in love with Charlie sheen not Carlos.Is it too much to ask that my loved ones understand my fears, the ghosts from the past. I live life to the hilt but I give everything to my work. Has not my stellar handwork made the Men a hit! I opened my life for the show. What did chuck really have to do? With 200 writers at his disposal, and a brilliant life story, all he did was act pompous! I on the other hand had to face the camera every time and deliver to my audience.
So how does it bother this insect what I do after or before the show?And since his creativity is dead he is trying to blame my smoking. Is he the drug czar or a worn out writer. I will not take this lying down, I will become drug free and than challenge his creativity leaving him no excuse.
This may or may not have occurred.
Act 1 Scene 2: Setting : a house in Los Angeles
Chuck: I have had enough of this drunk, druggie, whoremonger!I will not write for him or dwell on stupid antics of his. He is such a bad influence on kids .. My son, my wife abhors him.
He represents what wrong with our society. He has no character, yet he gets all the kudos. I exercise everyday, eat healthy food,avoid drinks and don’t smoke. This guy on the other hand is evil incarnate. He drinks and drinks, mistreats women, breaks all laws.yet, success and money follow him. Why do women drool over him, is bulbs fathom.
It’s always been the same. Even in school, I would struggle and excel, follow all rules , turn in work o n time and get straight A’s.
The same teachers would high five the jocks who were always absconding and smoking. The cheerleaders would throw themselves at these low life’s who would not think twice of taking advantage of them. Why? And they would turn down a true gentleman like self.it’s not fair.
I will not play second fiddle no more. My pen is my power. I will create characters and a show more powerful than men. I will turn unknown, unlikely talented actors into stars. Like the creation I will create a Big Bang!
This may or may not have happened!
Act 1 scene 1
Setting : a mansion in Beverly hills 2006
Charlie Sheen: Man, I am so gifted, than why do I have to prove myself everyday?
Chuck: Gifted my foot! You were born with a silver spoon which you have been able to tarnish.
Charlie Sheen: yeah right! 2 and 1/2 is a hit because of my heritage?when things go right it’s my birth and when things go south , I am a screwup.
Chuck: don’t twist facts.you have been sitting on the couch for 4 years. We have got tired of writing for you. You need to get up and start acting.
Charlie Sheen:tired of writing for me? Can you even write? If it wasn’t for me, do you even think your miserable talent would have seen the light of the day?
Chuck: I have been writing before you could even spell? I was writing when you were thrown out of SaMo high. I will continue writing even when you can’t stand up from your drunken stupor.
Charlie Sheen: my foot! Give you an inch you claim a yard. Without me you are dirt
Chuck: dirt is in your mind! I can write and make a hit show with unknowns. What’s more I can even turn a foreigner into a hit. Anyone, anyone tall, thin, fat …. I will show you.
Charlie Sheen: I dont have time to listen to the crap of an untalented word spitter. I am off to party.
This may or may not have happened.
