Someone pets a stuffed dog. It's HARRY SPENGLER, dressed formally and sitting in an armchair.

HARRY
Oh. Hello, cute fuzzy animal watcher.

ED ZEDDMORE is also dressed up and sitting in an armchair, holding a wine glass.

ED
I'm afraid it's time to put the puppies down.

HARRY
Time to quit petting your kittens—

HARRY tosses the stuffed dog away.

HARRY
—and face the preternatural.

ED
Because guess what?

HARRY
You're in our world now.

ED
A world where your worst nightmare gets faced every single night.

HARRY
Or at least every single installment of the next ten episodes!

ED
Welcome to the world of—

SPRUCE
Camera/Shamanologist

SPRUCE leans in to MAGGIE's camera. The scene goes false color, SPRUCE in reds, golds, and browns and the background in blues and blacks.

SPRUCE
Holla.

INT. WORKSHOP

A YOUNG MAN, DAVE, sits to be interviewed.

MAGGIE (voiceover)
So, Dave, why do you want to be a Ghostfacer?

DAVE
New Intern

DAVE
I don't know where to start. I studied mysticism for four years at UC Berkeley and I heard about Ed and Harry there.

EXT. PARK – DAY

ED
Yeah, uh, Dave, Dave, Dave. Good intern, uh, knows his equipment, runs a mean cable—

HARRY
Knows his Trek.

HARRY drinks from his coffee mug.

ED
Yeah. He's no Corbett.

HARRY
He's alive.

ED looks down, then gets up.

ED
Coffee break.

ED leaves

ED
I just, uh, I need a moment.

HARRY
Corbett was our last intern. He died in the line of duty.

INT. WORKSHOP – NIGHT

ED stands at a shrine to CORBETT, looking at CORBETT's picture.

HARRY (voiceover)
I think Ed blames himself for his death, so—

EXT. PARK – DAY

HARRY
He's been practicing his ghost martial arts a lot.

INT. WORKSHOP – DAY

ED works with nunchucks. HARRY watches him while twiddling with a device. MAGGIE sits next to HARRY, typing on a laptop. A camera at the ceiling of the room shows SPRUCE sitting at the table across from HARRY and MAGGIE, filming ED with the nunchucks.

GHOSTFACERS HQ
11:30 A.M.

MAGGIE
Hey guys. Just got a hit on the Ghostfacers website.

SPRUCE swings the camera around to MAGGIE.

MAGGIE
Five separate confirmed ghost sightings—

DAVE brings a tray of coffee cups to the table and starts passing them out.

MAGGIE
—at a rundown theater in Hollywood called the Grand Showcase.

The camera swings to ED.

ED
Confirmed?

MAGGIE
Yeah. Three people have been physically attacked.

ED
Thank you, adopted sister, sounds like we've got our next mission.

MAGGIE shrugs.

ED
That means full investigation deployment, all right?

ED has turned away from the others and moves toward the bulletin board, ignoring DAVE, who follows him holding out a cup of coffee.

ED
I want a map of the area right around here—

A knock.

WOMAN
Hi.

A BLONDE WOMAN has just entered the workshop.

WOMAN
Excuse me.

SPRUCE zooms in on the WOMAN's cleavage. ED and HARRY gawk at her.

WOMAN
I saw the ad. Is the intern position still open?

SPRUCE notices her legs. The WOMAN notices the camera.

WOMAN
Oh, my god, camera.

She faces the camera and smiles, playing with her hair.

WOMAN
Hi.

ED
What's your name?

WOMAN
Oh, Amber, with a Y.

HARRY
You're hired.

AMBYR gasps, smiling.

AMBYR
Really?

ED keeps staring.

ED
Dave?

HARRY
You're fired.

ED takes the coffee cup from DAVE.

ED (voiceover)
All right, Facers.

INT. WORKSHOP – DAY

SPRUCE, camera in hand, sits on one side of the table with HARRY, opposite MAGGIE and AMBYR. ED stands, addressing the group.

ED
View the case. The Grand Showcase Theater.

Black-and-white picture of the rundown theater.

ED
Built in 1939. Home to numerous ghost sightings and attacks. Maggie, got some info for us?

MAGGIE
Yeah. Um. Janet Myers.

MAGGIE holds up a black-and-white photo of JANET.

MAGGIE
She was an aspiring actress. She was attending a swanky party at the theater when her ex-husband just followed her into a dressing room and killed her.

HARRY
Carved her face up with a razor.

Black-and-white photos of JANET, her face sliced up, and of the bloody razor.

HARRY
Made her watch the whole thing.

SPRUCE
Crime of passion.

HARRY
Mm-hm. Repeated spectral violence eventually shut the place down.

ED
Let's take a look.

AMBYR
Wait. But what if it's haunted?

HARRY and ED look at each other.

INTERVIEWS

INT. MAGGIE'S WORKBENCH

MAGGIE
Tech Ops

MAGGIE takes a deep breath and blows it out.

MAGGIE
Ambyr.

MAGGIE laughs nervously.

MAGGIE tries to show AMBYR what to do with a video camera.

MAGGIE (voiceover)
Ambyr is, um, sweet. The guys seem to really like her.

INT. WORKSHOP

ED and HARRY hold a fan and a light. Music plays.

ED
Really good intern!

HARRY
Great intern!

AMBYR does a stripper-like dance in the breeze. MAGGIE comes in.

MAGGIE
Hey—

MAGGIE stops dead. ED and HARRY lower the fan and light. MAGGIE spreads her hands and puts one on her hip, exasperated.

MAGGIE
Oh.

INT. MAGGIE'S WORKBENCH

MAGGIE
Me and Harry? Well, we're, uh, no, noth–ab—

MAGGIE giggles. Cut to when she has control of herself.

MAGGIE
There, there was something that happened during our last mission.

EXT. PARK – DAY

HARRY
Team Co-Leader

HARRY
I like Maggie. I do. But she's my best friend's sister. Adopted.
Oh.

INT. MAGGIE'S WORKBENCH

MAGGIE
And, you know, he is my brother's best friend, so that's bad for the team.

EXT. PARK – DAY

HARRY
We felt for the good of the team that it was just better this way.

He brings his hands apart to illustrate.

HARRY
Why? What'd she say?
Oh.

INT. MAGGIE'S WORKBENCH

MAGGIE
Why? What'd he say?

EXT. PARK – DAY

HARRY
That what she said?

MISSION PREP

INT. WORKSHOP – DAY

ED
All right, team, we got two hours to sundown. I want all gear and personnel ready to deploy by seventeen hundred. Let's move out.

A closeup of the photo of CORBETT.

HARRY (voiceover)
Mission log, seven oh three dash eight.

HARRY taps CORBETT's photo frame, then thumps his heart.

HARRY (voiceover)
As the Ghostfacers prepare to reenter—

MAGGIE touches the frame.

HARRY (voiceover)
—the darkness—

AMBYR looks at the photo and plays with her hair.

HARRY (voiceover)
—we pay homage to a teammate who has crossed into the light.

ED salutes the photo.

HARRY (voiceover)
Alan J. Corbett. We will never forget.

INT. WORKSHOP – DAY

Faster-than-realtime of the Ghostfacers assembling their gear. HARRY zips his vest. ED cinches his belt. AMBYR shines a flashlight in her eyes. HARRY winks at the camera. ED nods at the camera. ED hands a device to AMBYR.

MISSION DEPARTURE

EXT. GARAGE – DAY

The garage door opens; the workshop is inside. AMBYR, ED, HARRY, MAGGIE, and SPRUCE, geared up and ready to go, pose inside the door. They walk out in fake slow-mo. HARRY starts loading up the Ghostfacers van. He closes the back and goes around to the driver's door. ED, at the shotgun door, goes around to the front.

ED
Are you kidding me?

AMBYR
What?

ED takes an envelope off the windshield.

ED
Harry, you park here? Daylight parking is a fifty-dollar ticket!

ED indicates a nearby street sign with parking times listed.

HARRY
Wasn't me.

ED
Who parked here?

AMBYR
Um. Ah.

AMBYR looks awkward. Freeze frame.
