FADE IN:
EXT. DOWNTOWN ENCHANTED CITY
It is Friday evening at the Enchanted City. Citizens are
getting ready to leave work, ready to spend their weekends.
A wizard waves goodbye to a witch co-worker before
teleporting himself out of frame, casting magic on himself.
A frog takes his crown off of his head, puts it in a
suitcase, then hops home. High above are a couple of witches
flying by on their brooms, talking to each-other.
CUT TO:
EXT. POTIONS AND STUFF
We are outside POTIONS AND STUFF, a small shop in the middle
of the downtown district. The lights are still on, but they
are getting ready to close for the weekend. On glass door is
a sign that says "Open." We then see KOKO through the door
as she flips the sign around so that it says "Closed."
COUNT SCORPIO
(off screen)
I’m telling you, -my- weekend is
going to be more fun than either of
you girls.
CUT TO:
INT. POTIONS AND STUFF
Inside the store we see all the
sorcerers would need, such as a
of beakers, and shelves full of
All have price tags on them, as

trinkets and spells that
stack of magic wands, a row
jars containing ingredients.
you would expect in a store.

MARL is behind the counter, counting the coins from an old
fashioned cash register, resembling the style used in the
early 20th century. There are several stacks of coin. COUNT
SCORPIO is in the front of the counter, blabbing to MARL
about his weekend plans. MARL is hardly paying attention,
however, focusing on the coins.
COUNT SCORPIO
That’s right, Marl baby. I’m going
to the club and have myself a good
time!

2.

MARL
(counting coins)
Mmm-hmm.
COUNT SCORPIO
I’m letting it loose. Gonna dance
my frustrations away.
MARL
(counting coins)
That’s nice
JODO walks past them, carrying several small boxes. COUNT
SCORPIO finally notices that MARL’s not paying attention to
him. He decides to have fun.
COUNT SCORPIO
And after that, I’m thinking of
flying to New Zealand and blowing
it up.
MARL
(puts another coin on the
stack)
Wow, that’s neat.
CUT TO: KOKO is standing next to one of the store shelves,
with her broom between her legs, ready for flight. JODO
walks in and gives the boxes to her. With her broom she
flies up to the top of one of the shelves, and quickly
places the boxes on the shelf. She smiles in satisfaction
after doing the task. COUNT SCORPIO and MARL exchange
dialogues off-screen while this is going on.
COUNT SCORPIO
(off-screen)
Then I’m going to shave my head and
become a Scientologist.
MARL
(off-screen, still not paying
attention)
Way to go.
COUNT SCORPIO
(off-screen)
Then I’ll use their secrets to
build a rocket and destroy the
moon.
MARL
(off-screen)
Wow, that’s amazing.

3.

CUT BACK TO: COUNT SCORPIO and MARL at the counter. MARL is
still counting coins.
COUNT SCORPIO
And then I’ll go find myself a cute
little witch for me to have fun
with.
MARL
(counting coins)
That’s ni-...
(realizes what he said)
Wait, what!?
COUNT SCORPIO
(laughs)
Bwa ha ha ha!
There’s a knock on the door off-screen. All three notices.
COUNT SCORPIO
(to the door)
Go away! We’re closed until Monday.
Another knock.
COUNT SCORPIO
(more angrily)
I said we’re closed, goddammit!
More knocking.
COUNT SCORPIO
Augh, for the love of god...Koko,
go out and tell that dumbass to go
away.
KOKO
What? Why don’t you do it?
COUNT SCORPIO
Because you’re the newbie at this
store. That means you’re all the
way in the bottom of the totem
pole.
KOKO
That doesn’t-...
COUNT SCORPIO faces away from KOKO, holding his hand up.

4.

COUNT SCORPIO
(interrupting)
Uh uh! I’m on the top and you’re on
the bottom. Now answer the door!
KOKO, agitated, goes to the door to do just that, but not
before giving COUNT SCORPIO the middle finger while glaring
at him. COUNT notices and scowls, but decides to ignore it.
MARL breaks the silence.
MARL
You know, Scorpy, I wish you would
be nice to Koko.
COUNT SCORPIO
Hey, c’mon, Marl. She’s a witch.
All witches need to know their
place if they want to work with me
around.
MARL takes offense to what COUNT SCORPIO just said.
MARL
(annoyed)
You do know that I’m the one who
got you hired here, right?
COUNT SCORPIO
(realizing what he said, says
with regret)
Sorry, Marl.
CUT TO:
EXT. CLOSE UP OF THE FRONT DOOR.
A shot of the door to the store. We see a tiny hand from
under the screen knock again. KOKO finally opens, sticking
her head out.
KOKO
Hey, can’t you read? Uh...
KOKO looks around, trying to find who was knocking on the
door. She doesn’t see anyone until a hand sticks out from
the bottom of the screen, snapping its fingers.
CANCER
(off-screen, snapping fingers)
Hey, down here!

5.

KOKO finally looks down, noticing that there’s nobody in
front of her face. Finally, she looks down and notices three
TRIPLETS staring at her. The first kid, a boy named CANCER,
has a long, brown hair similar to COUNT SCORPIO’S, except
twice as long. He’s wearing a black wizard’s robe. The
middle child is a girl, ARIES, with a long brown hair,
wearing a T-shirt with an exclamation point on front. She’s
wearing jeans, the only one to wear any sort of pants. The
third child, a boy named LEO, has his hair shaved off, only
leaving a peach fuzz on top. He looks like a nerd, wearing a
pair of round glasses on his face. He has a white wizard
robe on, going all the way down to his feet.
CANCER
My name’s Cancer.
ARIES
I’m Aries.
LEO
And Leo. We are here to visit our
older brother.
KOKO
I think you have the wrong place,
guys. There’s only one brother in
this place, and he’s my younger
LEO
(determined)
But this -is- 247 Goosebumps
Avenue, right?
KOKO
Well, yes, but...
ARIES
Then he’s here! Yay! Our brother’s
here!
CANCER/ARIES/LEO
(all cheer in happiness)
Yay!
All three TRIPLETS cheer at the same time. KOKO tries her
best to calm them down.
KOKO
Whoa, whoa, whoa! I don’t know what
he said, but there’s only one
brother in this building, and he’s
-my- younger sibling!

6.
The TRIPLETS’ eyes widen, all tearing up upon hearing this.
KOKO, now feeling guilty, tries to cheer them up.
KOKO
(panicking)
Alright, alright. There there,
kids. Maybe he just gave you this
address as a meeting place. He
might show up later. Heh heh.
The TRIPLETS are literally pouring water from their now even
wider eyes, spraying their tears on KOKO like a water hose.
KOKO, now drenched, shakes herself dry like a cat. After
stopping, KOKO notices that the TRIPLETS are still upset, so
she decides to keep them occupied.
KOKO
Tell you what. How about you three
wait inside the store until your
brother comes? We can play games in
the meantime.
This instantly cheers up the TRIPLETS, jumping in
celebration.
CANCER/ARIES/LEO
(jumping)
Woo hoo! Awesome!
In a blink of an eye, CANCER, ARIES, and LEO all cling to
KOKO, hugging her tightly. KOKO tries to shake them out, but
they won’t budge. Giving up, she drags herself inside the
store, the TRIPLETS still hanging on.
KOKO
(going back to the store)
What mess did I get myself into?
INT. POTIONS AND STUFF
JODO is dusting the shelves with a feather duster when KOKO
enters from the left, dragging herself past him with the
TRIPLETS still clinging to her. JODO stares at her,
wondering what’s going on. KOKO is trying to talk them out
of it.
KOKO
(walking past)
C’mon, you three. We can’t play if
you keep clinging to me like
Remoras. I don’t look like a shark,
do I? ...Actually, don’t answer
that.

7.
KOKO goes off-screen, with JODO still looking on in
bewilderment.
KOKO
(off-screen)
Okay, I’m going to fall if you
don’t let me go! Whoa! Look out!
Help!
CUT TO: The counter, with MARL and COUNT SCORPIO still
there. They are both startled when they hear KOKO crashing
into something off-screen. Sounds of shelves crashing and
glasses break are heard when this happens. MARL and COUNT
SCORPIO both rush to the scene.
They are surprised to see a big pile of mess, with broken
shelves and merchandise all over. On the top of the pile
KOKO sticks her head out, beaten up but still otherwise
okay. She rubs her forehead, trying to get the pain to go
away.
KOKO
(rubbing her forehead)
Ugh.
MARL
(worried)
Are you okay, Koko!?
COUNT SCORPIO
(smirking)
Geez, Koko. There are -way- better
ways to let your frustrations out
than -that-! Heh heh heh.
MARL glares at COUNT SCORPIO when he says that. COUNT
notices, and he stops laughing, looking nervous.
KOKO
I can’t help it! These three kids
wouldn’t let me go, so I tripped.
MARL
Three kids?
Just at MARL says this, the TRIPLETS pop themselves out of
the pile, a bit scratched but looking better than KOKO.
COUNT SCORPIO immediately recognizes them, much to his
displeasure.
COUNT SCORPIO
(whimpering)
Oh no...

8.
CANCER/ARIES/LEO
(yelling at the same time)
Hello, big brother!
MARL
Brother?
KOKO gets out of the heap and jumps down to where COUNT
SCORPIO and MARL are.
KOKO
(jumps down)
Wait, wait, wait. -He’s- the
brother you were talking about?
COUNT SCORPIO
(sighing)
Yes, they’re my younger siblings.
MARL turns to COUNT SCORPIO, slightly upset that she was
never told about them.
MARL
Scorpy, why didn’t you ever tell me
about them?
CANCER, ARIES, and LEO snicker upon hearing her say
"Scorpy". CANCER breaks down laughing.
CANCER
(laughing)
Scorpy? Bwa ha ha ha!
ARIES
(taunting)
Awww, is she your -girlfriend-?
MARL smirks upon the remark, snickering. COUNT SCORPIO
suddenly looks embarrassed.
COUNT SCORPIO
(blushing)
Uh, well...you know.
ARIES, now excited, rushes up to MARL, who is startled at
the sudden attention.
ARIES
(excited)
Oooh! Are you going to marry him?
Have lots and lots of babies? Can
we be sisters!? Because let me tell
you, only having brothers is a
drag.
