Queen & Country - It's Come to This - Ben Rosenthal

1.  Behind a shadowed figure illuminated by the computer screen he sits in front of.  He is reading an email however we cannot make out the words on the screen.

MAN: Queen and Country.  Interesting.

2.  Same framing, with different windows open on the screen.  This person is researching.

3. The man is standing at the screen now.  He is reaching into his pocket and pulling something out.

MAN: Dammit.  Looks like I am finally going to have to use this.

4.  A close up of hands signing a piece of card.

5.  The man is walking away from the screen, the card which he has just signed resting on the keyboard.

6.  A close up of the card.  It reads:


Thought Balloons 'Get out of Jail' Card.

Only to be used when one cannot come up with a script for that week.

Signed: Ben Rosenthal.




  1. Hey, I understand. I once won $10 coming in second place in a beauty contest...

  2. To quote Attack The Block:

    "Allow it"
