SCENE I: Intro
Scene opens fading from black to light from JACOB’s perspective. He’s waking up.
CO-PILOT: Jacob? Jacob?!
JACOB (rustling awake, very nasally): What! I’m sorry. Do I have to pay attention the whole
time?
CO-PILOT: Yes! Jacob, of course!
JACOB: This is so tiring. When’s nap time?
CO-PILOT: There is no nap time, Jacob! You’re in charge of hundreds of lives!
JACOB (whiny): Ugh! I don’t like responsibility.
CO-PILOT: Well you better start liking it, because we still have thirteen more hours to go.
JACOB: *moans*
CO-PILOT: Jacob! Stop whining.
JACOB: But I feel like I’m... I feel like I’m stranded!
Intro title sequence. Cute jingle and “STRANDED” in big letters. Here all of the characters
names will be shown!

SCENE II: Jacob
Cut to shots of the other characters on the plane: AUNT TOOTI reads a romance novel, SISTER
MARY CHEETO eats from a bag of Cheetos, MIRANDA stares straight ahead with dead eyes,
and FRAT MOORES flips through a Skymall. Cut back to JACOB and CO-PILOT.
JACOB: I have to go to the bathroom. :(
CO-PILOT: AGAIN!?
JACOB: I have overactive bladder syndrome!

JACOB gets up and leaves. CO-PILOT shrieks and grabs control of the plane. Whilst the CO-
PILOT struggles to save the lives of hundreds, JACOB can be heard saying:

JACOB: Oh hello, sir. What are you doing here? Oh you’re in here? Is it occupied? You have a
very nice member— Oh that reminds me, I need to eat my lunch that I packed for myself, it’s a
cucumber sandwich—
JACOB returns. He takes out a plastic bag with a cucumber sandwich in it and starts eating it.
CO-PILOT: You can’t keep doing that!
JACOB: What? Going to the bathroom? I have a very small bladder. (very long pause) It’s like a
coin purse.
CO-PILOT: Listen to me Jacob. I know that this is your first time flying a plane, but you—
JACOB: *moaning*
CO-PILOT: Stop, stop that noise. What is that?
JACOB: *moaning*
CO-PILOT: Jacob! JACOB. You have to listen to me this is very important!
JACOB: *moaning*
CO-PILOT is silent, waiting for the moaning to end. JACOB continues moaning for a comedic
amount of time.
