THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, EPISODE 2

Re: Pilot for a situation-comedy television program, "The Elephant in the Room."

Description: One part "The Odd Couple," one part "Frasier," and two parts "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest."
 

Summary on television situation comedy on GOP presidential candidates : The "Elephant in the Room" centers on the Elephant brothers, the loutish and messy Newt and his younger brother, the duplicitous and smarmy Mitt, who together run the family's prosperous asbestos factory. Newt and Mitt share a house with their grumpy father, Ron Paul, who is such a stickler for old-fashioned ways he only uses Confederate money. Another character, the sanctimonious Rick, lives next door. The other regular character, the brothers' batty Aunt Sarah, lives above the house in the attic. The program's plot lines focus on the brothers' sibling rivalry, their shameless business practices, and their craven attempts for the affections of their batty Aunt Sarah.

Script excerpt, from Episode 2 :

Mitt, Newt, Rick and Ron Paul wait in the living room with gifts to win the approval of Aunt Sarah on the eve of Super Tuesday.

RON PAUL: "Mitt, what did you get your Aunt Sarah?"

 

(Mitt shows his gift to the others)

NEWT: "You're giving her a check, Mitt!"

MITT: "It's a blank check."

(Laughter.)

RON PAUL (smiling approvingly): "You certainly know your Aunt Sarah . . . "

NEWT (angrily): "I gave her a check before the Michigan primary!"
