This is just a little thingy I wrote when I randomly got the idea for this today.
It's written in script form, and it's about Mr. Johnson once again returning to Charlie's for lunch.

FADE IN:

EXT: Charlie’s Restaurant

MR. JOHNSON is just walking into the restaurant, prepared for lunch.

INT: Charlie’s Restaurant

Placed at a table next to the kitchen doors, Mr. Johnson is looking through the menu.


Mr. Johnson
I can’t wait to get lunch today, but I don’t quite know what to order. I’ll ask the waiter.


GROVER walks to the table, with a notepad and a pencil.


Grover
Hello sir, may I take your order?


Mr. Johnson
Oh no, not you again! Look, I just want to eat lunch and get back to my job.


Grover
Of course you do sir, now today Charlie’s has a very special, er special today!


Mr. Johnson
Oh yeah, what is it?


Grover
Today we have alphabet soup, guaranteed to have every letter! That is the letters A through Z, by the way.

Mr. Johnson
You know, that sounds good. I’ll have that.


Grover
Are you sure? 26 letters are a lot for lunch. May I recommend just the letter G?


Mr. Johnson
Now I just want my soup, I don’t care if it’s too much food.


Grover
Well alright sir, I’ll get it right away!


Grover walks into the kitchen, and many pots and pans clank together.


Grover
Charlie, Charlie! I need the special!


Grover walks out of the kitchen with 26 bowls, steaming hot.


Grover
Here is your order sir, 26 alphabet soups.


Mr. Johnson
I didn’t want all these soups! I only wanted one bowl of soup!


Grover
But sir, in order to have alphabet soup, you need a bowl for each letter.


Mr. Johnson
No you don’t! Now I want my alphabet soup in one bowl only.


Grover
Well, I say the customer is always right! So I will be right back with a fresh bowl of alphabet soup for you sir!

Grover proceeds to enter the kitchen again, then walking back out struggling to carry a very large bowl.


Grover
Here is what you wanted sir, only one bowl of alphabet soup! Guaranteed to contain all 26 letters of the alphabet, A though Z!


Mr. Johnson

I didn’t ask for such a large bowl! I just want some soup, so I can enjoy my lunch. Don’t you get it? I want a normal sized bowl of soup, not 26 or a large one!


Grover
Well I am sorry sir, but that is the last of our soup. We did not expect many people to order 26 bowls of soup.


Mr. Johnson
I’ve had it with this restaurant! I’m going to the burger joint next door.


Grover
Mind if I come with you? My shift there starts in 5 minutes and my mommy doesn’t like me to cross the street all by myself.

Mr. Johnson groans and falls onto the floor.


Grover
Uh, sir? You still have your bill for the soup. Sir?
