Episode One

The next morning. Chucky opens his bloodshot eyes and tries to focus on the objects in the room to determine his whereabouts. Too early to try to recall the previous night’s events.

Jake hears him rustling in the bed.

JAKE: Hey Stupid, you up?

Chucky closes his eyes.

JAKE: You gotta work in an hour. And you’re scheduled to be in the office today.

CHUCKY: Fuck that, I’m working remote.
