"The Greater Lust" a short skit by Sam Vest

Logline: Mark, a reformed peanut butter jelly addict encounters Stacy, his attractive former high school classmate, having a picnic with PB & J on the menu.

PARK - NOON
Mark, a fit looking college student JOGS by STACY, also an attractive college student who is having a picnic complete with a BLANKET and BASKET.

STACY
Mark?

Mark HALTS.

MARK
Stacy? Stacy Taylors? Is that you? My gosh I have not seen you since high school!

STACY
Yeah, it's been a while. Hey! Would you like to join me?

MARK
Sure! Yeah I'll join you!

Mark sits down on blanket across from Stacy.

STACY
Gosh Mark, you're really looking fit.

MARK
Thanks! If I told you today marks the one year anniversary of conquering my addiction to peanut butter and jelly would you believe me?

STACY
Ha ha ha! Mark, you always were so funny.

MARK
Well you were always the pretty one.

STACY
Do you mind if I actually have my lunch while we chat? I haven't eaten all day and I'm starving.

Stacy OPENS basket and REACHES inside.

MARK
No! No it's fine. You go right ahead.

Stacy PULLS out SUPPLIES to make a peanut butter jelly sandwich. Mark's eyes widen.

STACY
So tell me about yourself Mark. What do you do these days for fun?

Stacy UNTWISTS the BAG of bread and REMOVES out two SLICES and PLACES them on her lap. Mark GLANCES from slices to Stacy's face.

Mark
Well I— work out.

STACY
I can see that silly. Do you go out at night?

She TWISTS off the peanut butter LID and SCOOPS out its contents with a plastic KNIFE. Mark is transfixed with the loaded knife.

MARK
I- I- I- go see movies.

STACY
Movies! Is there someone special you go with?

Stacy SPREADS the peanut butter on the bread. Mark goes CROSS-EYED.

STACY
Mark?

Mark LOOKS back at Stacy.

MARK
No! No one special.

Stacy REMOVES the LID from the JELLY CONTAINER and SCOOPS out JELLY with the knife. Mark is again ENTRANCED.

STACY

Would you like to go with someone special?

She SPREADS the jelly over the peanut butter. Mark BITES his lower LIP.

MARK
Uh huh—

Stacy COMPLETES the sandwich with the second slice of bread and BRINGS it toward her mouth to take a bite. She NOTICES Mark staring passionately.

STACY
(flirtatiously)
Mark, answer my question.

Mark continues staring. Stacy HOLDS the sandwich near her face and LEANS toward Mark. Mark also LEANS closer.

STACY
Would you like to go— out— with—

Their faces slowly INCH closer. Stacy CLOSES her eyes and PUCKERS UP to kiss. Mark STEERS his face away just before impact, GRABS the sandwich, and SHOVES it violently into his mouth.

STACY
Hey!

Stacy PUSHES Mark over and JUMPS to her feet.

STACY
Creep!

Stacy STORMS away leaving Mark ROLLING in peanut butter jelly euphoria.

THE END

Premise: Man's appetite for food is great than his lust for women.
