    THoH Short: "Ring It"

    OPENING SCENE: Rainy day and Bart and Milhouse are in Milhouse's living room in front of the TV. Kirk Enters carrying a plastic milk crate filled with old video tapes, some vinyl albums and various cassette tapes. Milhouse and Bart turn their attention to him.

    MH:
    Dad, we're bored. Krusty's all reruns and forced A.A. commercials.

    KIRK: (annoyed)
    Geeze, can't your old man go to one garage sale and come home and sort out his impulse buys in peace? Here, watch this old VHS tape.

    BART AND MILHOUSE LOOK AT THE VHS TAPE WITH NO LABEL.

    MH:
    What is this? And we don't have a VCR!

    KIRK:
    Well good thing I picked this up for 78 cents. (KIRK DROPS A DUSTY VCR WITH A CORDED REMOTE ON THE FLOOR) Knock yourselves out, kids.

    A RUMBLE OF THUNDER IS HEARD AS BART AND MILHOUSE LOOK AT THE CORD ON THE BACK OF THE OLD VCR.

    BART:
    Um, I'm not sure this will work with an HDTV...

    MILHOUSE:
    Do you think we should call Lisa--

    BART:
    No! We can figure this out ourselves, Milhouse!

    THE WORDS "Three hours later" APPEAR.

    LISA:
    Sorry I couldn't be here sooner, Bart. (Lisa gets behind the TV) There, and all you had to do was plug in the red, white and yellow cables to the matching holes.

    BART:
    Well, thanks Captain Input. Step aside, we've got some sort of movie to watch!

    BART INSERTS THE OLD TAPE INTO THE POP UP CHASSIS AND PUSHES THE LID DOWN AND HITS PLAY ON THE REMOTE. THE SCREEN IS BLACK AND THEN A BRIGHT CIRCLE OF LIGHT APPEARS.

    MILHOUSE:
    I-I..I'll fix the tracking....wait, does this thing even have tracking?

    THE IMAGE CHANGES FROM A RING TO A FARM HOUSE, HORSES, KRUSTY WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER, THE BEATLES PERFORMING ON THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW, THE MOON LANDING AND THEN A GIRL WITH LONG BLACK HAIR COMING OUT OF A WISHING WELL AS A SMALL BOY AND YOUNG MOTHER RUN AWAY. THE LITTLE BOY IS HEARD RUNNING WAY SAYING: "I want my penny back!"

    BART:
    Cooool!!!! This is so bad, it's almost funny!

    THE GIRL WITH LONG BLACK HAIR WALKS TWITCHY TOWARDS THE SCREEN AND SUDDENLY LOOKS UP AND IN A BRIGHT FLASH, THE CIRCLE OF LIGHT APPEARS AND THE SCREEN GOES DARK WHEN THE VCR EATS THE TAPE, FOLLOWED BY A PUFF OF ELECTRICAL SMOKE.

    LISA:
    That was it!? (pulls out the VHS tape as the ribbon is tangled inside. Look closer at the tape) "Samara Productions?" Milhouse, where did your dad say he got---

    LISA LOOKS OVER AT MILHOUSE HOW IS HAVING A SEIZURE.

    CUT TO A HOSPITAL ROOM. DR. HIBBERT IS PUTTING AWAY HIS STETHOSCOPE. KIRK, LUANNE, BART AND LISA ARE ALSO PRESENT.

    KIRK:
    Doctor, is my son going to be okay?

    HIBBERT:
    'laughs' Yeah, whatever was on that tape triggered a seizure, so as long as you don't show it to him again, he should be fine. In the meantime, my secretary called and said your insurance card is invalid.

    KIRK:
    Goddamnit!

    CUT TO THE SIMPSONS'S HOME. MILHOUSE IS WATCHING TV WITH BART IN THE LIVING ROOM WHEN THE PHONE RINGS. HOMER ENTERS AND ANSWERS.

    HOMER:
    Hello?

    VOICE:
    You have seven days.

    HOMER:
    Huh, is this the collection agency?

    VOICE:
    Seven days, and not you, the two boys.

    HOMER: (getting angry)
    Wait...who is this!?

    THE PHONE GOES DEAD.

    BART:
    Homer, who was that?

    HOMER:
    Hell if I know....

    BART AND MILHOUSE'S NOSES BEGINS TO BLEED.

    BART:
    What the hell?

    HOMER: (staring)
    Wow, I haven't strangled the boy, either. I'm in moderate awe.

    tbc.
