Extra- (screams) (falls down)
(at death sceance/ park victim is bloody and on ground)
Ralph- (speaking in radio) it’s a 162, fairway, bout 14 of age, female
Thera- (taps Ralph on the shoulder) hey Ralph, we found the identity, Brittany shallow. Clean record, no crime.
Ralph- (slaps lap in frustration) god Thera! I just don’t get it! Its just murder after murder and no reason!
Thera- Look its not that serious, we found the identity now we just got to tell her parents and find out how she died.
Ralph- (sigh) I guess your right, go look up her family and I’ll call cat. She’s coming today. And I’m super nervous. Ever since what happened to her mother…. It’s just been… awkward.
Thera- hmm… just get her a little gift. Show her you love her. Wait, you do love her… right? (Smiles)
Ralph- (laughing) yes, I love her with all my heart!
Thera- great, well I got to go find a family tree! I’ll see you later?
Ralph- of course…
(Thera walks away) (Ralph looks at her dreamy)
Extra- (laughs) what are you doing?
(Ralph snaps out of it)
Ralph- oh, oh um… get to work and get me a donut!
(Ralph walks out)
(Ralph is on driveway, taxi shows up and cat walks out)
Ralph- hey Cat (akwardness)
Cat- hey dad…
Ralph- umm I got you something
(Pulls out little bunny for a baby)
Cat- umm Thanks dad
Ralph- I remember how much you loved bunnies and when I saw this I just thought of you so… ya.
Cat- dad, its great. (Grabs suitcase) so, is my room still where it use to be?
Ralph- oh, ya but first I’m going to take you to eat at your favorite restrant.
Cat- that’s great but I want to put some stuff in my room first.
Ralph- ok, that’s fine…
Cat- Thanks! (Half smiles)
(Goes inside and goes to room)
(Cat walks in room)
Cat- wow, he definitely hasn’t changed the room.
(Room is babyish)
(Puts bag down)
Cat- let me just unpack something’s…
(Takes out picture of mom and sets it up on table)
(Sad music plays and there’s a pause)
Ralph- (from downstairs) Cat?
(Cat goes down stairs)
Cat- got your wallet?
Ralph- (points to cat) good idea!
(Goes to get wallet)
(Cat is in room and alarm goes off)
Cat- (groans) It’s 7 already?
Ralph- (from down stairs) Cat! I’ve got you’re schedule!
Cat- I’ll be there in 20
Ralph- (from down stairs) hurry, I’ve got work!
(Cat brushes hair and hurry’s down stairs)
(Cat creeps by her dad’s office and hear’s about murder)
Ralph- (on phone) another one! That’s 12 murders already! And all they have in common is the age. 8-14 years old! I looked at the marks and it’s not a bear or any type of cat or dog. What could it be? We might need to shut down the schools… (pause) Ya, your right, lets wait till it gets more serious.
Cat- (walk’s in) dad?
Ralph- oh! Oh um, sorry I got to go. Bye! (Hangs up) sorry cat, what do you need? (Nervous)
Cat- umm, my schedule
Ralph- oh, ya sorry (hands cat schedule.) there.
Cat- thanks; I’m ganna go, k?
Ralph- yep. Ya. Of course.
(Cat walks out)
(In the halls of school, narrates life)
Cat- wow, dad is now officially creeping me out. With the bunny, the room, he has made it obvious that it is awkward since my mom… well, the background story is basic; it was on a Friday night… (Sad) We ordered pizza and where watching a stupid romance movie when we herd a nock and I thought it was just a friend or something that was going to join us but no, my mom went to answer the door and they stepped out side; I never saw the man’s face! I waited and waited for hours because I was to scared to open the door. I finally got up the courage and opened the door. I looked down and there before me was my own mothers dead body. So, that’s what happened, only a month ago. Now I have a fear of answering doors and I miss my mom sooo much! But what kills me the most is that no one knows how or why my mom died and I am determined to find out. I have been living with my nana for a month but the child services wanted me to live with my dad and I agreed since I love my dad and haven’t seen him much since my mom and him split when I was 5. so that’s where I am Cat Hudson, the one who WILL find out the truth!
Sceance 5 ½
(Cat walks in to classroom) (Heath/Iselin/flow are in the school group)
Extra (teacher)- hello class today- (notices cat) Oh, yes so dear sorry, (puts arm around cat) this is our new student Catherine Hudson.

Flow- oh, sorry (sarcastically)

Matter- Flow, she oldest girl of the Underwood’s, and ya she’s known for her… (Stares dreamy) beautiful (gets back into real life) what/ oh, I mean sass. She’s known for her sass.
Cat- huh, who are the Underwood’s? I think my dad has mentioned a woman with that same last name…
(They stare at Underwood’s)
Matter- I don’t know, they’re mysterious and Flow is gorgeous…
Cat- Matter! (Snaps fingers) snap out of it! We have to find out more about these “Underwood’s”!
Matter- Why? (Scared)
Cat- because something’s creepy about them and I wasn’t going to tell you this but… I was listening to my dad on the phone this morning and… there has been A LOT of murderers!
Matter- (starts laughing really hard) and you think (catches breath) you think the Underwood’s are the killers? (Laughs more) who messed with your head? They are kids!
Cat- ya, but crazy kids… I say we spy!
Matter- ( goes to straight face) no! You know I am scared of spying! What if we get caught?
Cat- Matter, your scared of everything! Live a little
Matter- last time you said that it ended with police
Cat- come on! Trust me…
(canon lake house= underwoods/creachers house) (all are at big long table)
Thera- (yelling in devil form) you are all a disgrace!!!! Who are you Obama? Trying to sneak around and being so flippin bad about it! I swear if Ralph wasn’t so stupid and in love with me you would all be hanged or shot and they would do anything to try and kill you. Worst of all our plan would not work! I swear- (interrupts)
Aqua- but Thera you have to see from our point here! We live on human flesh and we have to give you most of our findings! We are starving!
Flow- ya! I cant just live on one human for a whole month! We will die and be insane with hunger!
Heath- I just don’t get it, we have been able to pool this off before.
Iselin- ya, but we had to move afterward.
Thera- (points to Iselin) exactly! And we cant move this time! Not with all these privileges!
Wilfred- then what will we do for food?
Aqua- well, we have no choice but to kill…
Dolly- no! No more killing! I don’t like it!
Flow- (rolls eyes) here we go again!
Thera- one more kill and from now on no more deaths without my permission… understood?!
Thera- you’re words better be true or you will spend you’re time in my little home. (Does evil smile) a place called hell. So unless you want to be packing your bags…
Aqua- got it
Flow- (mumbles) we better
Thera- now get out! You’re presence disturbs me! (Looks at dolly) especially you!
Dolly- (looks down and frowns)

Thera- (evil laugh) soon I’ll be back where I used to be (laughs while sinking into floor)
(Cat walks in)
Cat- dad! Dad, are you home?!

Cat- oh, nothing just had a great first day!
Ralph- well, that’s great! Listen I got work to do I’m sorry…
Cat- umm that’s ok, I’ll go to my room; It will give me time to unpack more

(Cat walks upstairs into room)
Cat- well… (Looks out window and see’s the Underwood’s) (Leans forward) If only I could hear them…
Cat- (trips and makes loud noise on accident)
(Flow looks up and catches cat)
Cat- I’m dead (then hides under window and Underwood’s run off)
(In the hallway) (Focus on cat)
(Walks into classroom) (Music)
Extra (teacher)- sit down, sit down
(Students sit down)
(When cat sits down flow rolls eyes)
Extra (teacher)- ok, so now we are going to watch this video on prince Robert the third now listen closely- (mumbles)
Flow- yuck, a video
Cat- it’s not that bad… uh
Flow- you’re that bad!
Cat- (holds in anger then burst) ok that’s enough! You cant just keep pushing people around! It makes them feel weird!
Flow- Weird? Makes them feel Weird! I’m not the one stalking people and watching them like some… some freak!!! Ah! (Walks out)
Extra (teacher)- Catharine, detention for a week!
Extra (teacher)- but nothing! Out now!

(Flow walks bi)
Cat- (gasp) there she is! I have to follow her!
Matter- No! Not again!
Cat- (grabs matter’s arm) come on!
(Follow flow to the Underwood family behind the school)
Cat- (whispers) come on!
Matter- (steps on wrapper)
(Cat and matter quiet)
Flow- ok, I’m here what’s the time?
Aqua- 3:15, you ready?
Dolly- do I have to be here?
Iselin- yes, if you want to eat!
Heath- what are you stupid!?

Wilfred- it’s ok… (Comforts dolly)
Flow- oh, will you shut up! Let’s get this over with!
Aqua- ok, you (points to flow) go over- (interups himself) (looks at cat)
Aqua/Flow- (steps toward cat)
Cat- Run. Run. Run!
(At canon lake table/ Underwood’s house) (Meeting)
Aqua- I call this meeting into session! (Slams table)
Flow- if this is a “meeting” then why isn’t Thera here?
Aqua- cause… um because she will push my decision I want to share with you!
Flow- whoa, Mr. Big words, what decision?
Dolly- Can I leave?
Heath/Iselin- no! Sit town!
Heath- where am I? Oh, I know… I’m in… ok, never mind
Iselin- God! You are annoying!
Heath- (whimpers) you’re mean!
Flow- ok! Ok! Now what’s this stupid “decision”? I didn’t know you could make one with out Thera…
Aqua- you cant, but that’s beside my point! Now quiet down! (Quiet’s down)
Aqua- ok, here’s the thing; you know that girl? Umm…
Aqua- ya, I think
Wilfred- what? She’s like 12!
Aqua- ya, but one little girl can make one big mess!
Wilfred- so… What are we ganna do?
Heath- let’s just like kill her or something…
Iselin- ya, so what do we do?
Aqua- no more kills
Flow- (stands up angry) WHAT?
Aqua- no more till her suspicion is over!
Flow- but you know what happens to us if we don’t eat! She’s already starting to take over my body!
Dolly- me too, it’s scary
Wilfred- (comforts dolly) I know, I know
Flow- wait! Wait! How will we survive?
Aqua- I don’t know (looks down)
Flow- so your plain is to let “her” take over? Wow you’re smart! (Sarcastically)
Aqua- look, what other choice do we have? She can’t find out!
Heath- we kill her?
Iselin- (puts hand on head) I-yi-yi
Dolly- is that all you’re solutions? Killing? I wish we could just somehow…
Aqua- no kills! No somehow! And No taking over! I’ll find away…
Flow- ya right! This is pathetic! (Starts to walk out)
Aqua- but- wait!
Flow- save it! (Walks out)
Aqua- well… do we agree? No more kills?
Heath/Iselin- do we have a choice?
Aqua- not on my watch!
Heath- I’m out.
Iselin- I guess I’m out too?
(All walk out but aqua)
Aqua- (puts head down) (sigh)
(In cat’s room/cat’s on phone with matter)
Cat- you’ll be here in 5? (Pause) Thanks matter, I’ll see you then
(Hangs up) (Paces)
(Matter walks in)
Matter- Hey, what’s the emergency?
Cat- It’s the… Underwood’s
Matter- again! We already got super busted and… I’m…
Cat- chill out! I say we sneak out tonight my dad is working late and I NEED to find out what’s going on.
Matter- what if it’s better left unknown…
Cat- no way! Remember what they said… something about “getting it over with” what’s going on?!
Matter- well the little girl said she didn’t want to do it… where they ganna hurt her?
Cat- no… maybe they where ganna use her…
Matter- I don’t know and I’m too scared to find out.
Cat- well, sucks for you because you’re coming back to my house tonight to spy on the Underwood’s!
Matter- What-but- I never agreed to this!
Cat- great be at my house at midnight!
Matter- but-but-what arrggg!
(Matter walks out)
Cat- Ok! See you then!
(Ralph comes into cat’s room)
Ralph- are you ok?
Cat- ya-ya-ya- I’m just fine (nervously)
Ralph- ok (nervously) guess I’ll go to work, bye!
Cat- this is about to get crazy!
(Outside cat’s house) (Cat and matter are in spy black costume)
Matter- (whisper) I’m here
Cat- ok (picks up dirt) put this on your face (puts dirt on face)
Matter- what! No!
Cat- Please! We don’t have much time…
Matter- Arrggg! Fine… (Puts dirt on face with attitude)
Matter-ok, so where do we go?
Cat- oh, umm… Where do they hang out?
Matter- (sarcastically) ya, because they are there right now.
Cat- just tell me
Matter- well, there is a bunch of rumors…but…
Cat-we don’t have much time.
Matter- Fine! They hang out by the lake…
Cat-ok, so lets go!
Matter- wait! (Cat looks at matter) what if the rumors are true? What if… something happens to us?
Cat- we’ll be fine, just follow me
(They walk to lake) (Spooky music)
Cat- (grins) told you so
Cat- shhh listen (lean in)
Flow- what’s the point of this? I’m freezing…
Iselin- ya, and why isn’t dolly and Wilfred here?
Aqua- because this is been a tough time for them they need to time to themselves…
Heath- good point; so why are we here?
Flow- I was just thinking the same thing, we never come to the lake unless we are ready to make a kill.
(Back in the bushes)
Matter- (shivering) did she say…
Matter- cat I think we should-
(Back by the lake)
Flow- what was that?
Flow- that noise
Iselin- I herd it too
Aqua- I didn’t
Flow- where did it come from?
Heath- please don’t tell me it was that mortal…
(Back in the bushes)
Cat- go! Go! Go!
(Cat and matter run back to cat’s house)
Cat-phew! (Wipes sweat)
Matter- (catching breath) I…am never…never…doing that…again!
Cat- At least we didn’t get caught…
Matter- cat! Nock some sense into your head! (Grabs shoulders and shakes cat) This is exactly how you used to be! You’re ganna get in trouble!
Cat- but did you hear what she said? Kills! Mortals! Something is not right about them and I cant just sit here!
Matter- are you still thinking the “Underwood’s” are killers? Ok, they’re freaky but NOT murderers!
Cat- you where there! You herd her when she said, “we never come to the lake unless we are ready to make a KILL” and when that other girl, heth?
Cat- whatever, heath said “please don’t tell me its that MORTAL!”
Matter- come down!
Cat- no! Not until I figure out what’s going on!… why aren’t you supporting me?
Matter- because…if you are right we could get killed spying on them and not “grounded, killed” real BLOOD killed! Is that who you are? A person that risks their life for some… some “truth”
Cat- yes, I am that “kind” of person! My mom died a mouth ago and I think it was them and if I die I die knowing! But you… you will die with a mystery!
Matter- Fine! But I’m not coming with you to any more suicidal trips to the “Underwood’s”
(Matter storms out and cat goes to bed)
(Police finding at lake)
Ralph- this is a 182, this time male, bout 10 of age, fairway again.

Thera- ya, this one is a smarty…
Ralph- have you found the identity yet?
Thera- nope, I got Henry working on it!
Ralph- cool, I need to tell you something…
Thera- (mumbles) oh god
Ralph- I think I am going to resign as a police captain and find another job…
Thera- what! Wait… why?
Ralph- It’s been 2 mouths thera! I sill haven’t found this stupid murderer! Why have this job when I am no good at it!
Thera- (puts hand on Ralph’s shoulder) there, there. You are great at you’re job, you just need a break…
Ralph- ya, a break would be nice…
Thera-ya, that’s what you need… why don’t you take today and tomorrow off?
Ralph- you sure? Can you handle all this (spreads arms out) for two days?
Thera- I’m sure I can manage…
Ralph- hmm… (Thinks for awhile) Fine, but I’ll be back in two days!
Thera- ok, captain (flirty smile)
Ralph- ok, (hands over clipboard) here’s the list of stuff to do…
Ill go pack up some stuff…
Ralph- see you later… (Waves)
Thera- (waves then mumbles: ) oh, you’ll see me soon (evil grin)
(At canon lake house/ Underwood’s house) (Meeting held by thera)
Thera- I bring great news! I understand we have been having some problems with this… family…
(People look confused)
Thera- CAT! And her dad… Ralph! (Pause) anyway Ralph is taking a “break” from being a police captain and those two days is the time we have to do it.
Dolly- what does “it” mean?
Wilfred- ya, what are we going to do? And why do we have two days?
Thera- YOU IDIOTS!!!
Flow- Hey! I was about to ask the same thing and I KNOW, im NOT an idiot!
Iselin- just go on…
Thera- since you are too stupid! To relies that “it” means what “we” have been planning…
Heath- I’m lost (twirls hair)
Aqua- Enough! This is so aggravating! Just tell us what you’re planning!
Thera- (lifts hands and is struggling aqua by force)
Aqua- (struggling) tell us…what…to…do…
Thera- (lets go) I found a way to get rid of the Hudson’s (evil grin)
(cat walks into her dad’s office)
Ralph- (wakes up from sleeping on desk) ummm… Oh… hi
Cat- it’s 12, you said we needed to meet a friend of yours from work?
Ralph- Oh my god! I’m late (puts hand on cat’s shoulder) thanks for waking me; wait outside while I get some pants (stands up in underwear)
Cat- (awkward) ok…
Ralph- great! (runs and puts pants on)
Cat- DAD! (yelling to him from outside the restroom)
Cat- what is the name of the woman we are having dinner with again?
Ralph- Thera Underwood (dreamy sigh)
Cat- (gasp) (whispers) oh my god!
Ralph- is everything ok?
Cat- umm… ya I’m fine… you done?
Ralph- (walks out) all set, I thought I told you to wait in the car…
Cat- ummm…. Its starting to get dark and…
Ralph- that’s fine, let’s go, we’re late!
Cat- umm… ok…
(Leave and go to car)
Ralph- this is going to be great!
(At Underwood’s for dinner)
Ralph- hello Thera, (puts hand on cat’s shoulder) this is my daughter, cat.
Thera- why hello cat, your dad has talked a lot about you (smiles)
Cat- (smiles awkwardly) umm… thanks…
Thera- these are my kids, (points to each one as she says their name) Aqua, Flow, Heath and Iselin, Wilfred and Dolly. From my understanding you have a class with some of them.
Cat- ya, I have a class with Heath, Iselin, and Flow…
Thera- ya, they have mentioned you where in one of their classes… anyway take a seat
Ralph and cat- (sit down)
Ralph- so… you told me you want to talk about something…
Thera- yes… ummm let me and the twins talk to you… privately…
Ralph- sure, I-
Cat- Need to talk to me first
Ralph- umm, I guess I need to talk to cat real quick, I’m so sorry-
Thera- it’s fine, you are excused
Ralph- thank you, again so sorry
(Ralph and cat walk to corner)
Cat- you cant (whispering)
Cat- you cant be alone with any of the Underwood’s
Ralph- why? What are they going to do, kill me? (says sarcastically)
Cat- yes, actually they might. I’ve been spying and-
Ralph- wait! You have been spying?
Ralph- no! This conversation
(Walk back to table)
(Walks to table)
Ralph- ok… where were we?
Thera- follow me…
(Walks out of room with twins)
Thera- bye (starts to tear up)
Flow- what is you’re problem? (Bratty)
Cat- oh, (wipes tears) I’m just…uh… being dramatic…
(Hear Ralph scream)
Cat- (cries and runs to the door Ralph was token into) Dad? Dad! DAD!
Cat- (walks into door and sees dad on floor bloody with heath and Iselin and thera as creachers)
Cat- dad… (Cries) who are you?! You… you creacher! How could you do this? Did you do this to my mother too? Now my father? And soon… oh, no…
Heath- haha, yes you, now you
Iselin- and yes, we did. You look like your mother… haha
(flow,aqua,wilferd and dolly sneak up behind cat)
dolly- No! Stop! Don’t do it!!!
Flow- no dolly, go and starve or hurt and be full.
Cat- wait! Stop! Havn’t you ever thought about how a death of one would affect hundreds? When you killed my mom, people from all over the world came to her funeral! Many people loved her! And same with my dad and me! When you kill someone you push all your feeling’s aside to deal with the fact the population is down one. And when I say one it seems so little but it adds and it becomes millions. Don’t you dream of having a different goal, like something you want to do?
Thera- oh, shut up!
Dolly- hey I agree with her (steps by cat) you kill her you put me in the devils home!
Thera-ok, have it your way
Flow- dolly! Don’t do this!
Dolly- flow, over the years YOU tell me what to do and this is the one decision I will make!
Thera- flow, join her or shut up!
Flow- fine, let’s finish this
Aqua- bye bye
(All walk towards cat and dolly)
