JIMMY IS CLERK

Jimmy’s head pops up from behind counter.
BODY
Sody tries on bikinis and Jimmy helps her. They get to know and like one another—a mutual crush in the making. Both are too naive and scared to voice their feelings about one another.

SODY MODELS BIKINI #1

Sody holds a bikini up: “What do you think?”
Jimmy frowns. The bikini is no good for her. He offers one that’s not so skimpy and sexy.
She puts it on, then steps out of the dressing room to model it.
Jimmy’s crotch inverts.

She undresses, dropping her clothes to the floor.
Jimmy looks up to a sign and makes a startled noise.
Sody asks Jimmy if anything is wrong.

Jimmy pees himself.

He blushes as he sees her naked arms and shoulders.
He shields his eyes and with dainty fingers hands her a bikini.

SODY MODELS BIKINI #2,3,4,5

She models 4 bikinis. “What do you think?”
She looks beautiful in each.
“Is there something wrong with these mirrors? Why do they always make you look fatter?”

JIMMY MODELS BIKINI

“Would you try this one on?” Sody asks Jimmy. “I need to see it on someone else to be absolutely certain it’s the right one for me.”

High fashion gags.

She asks Jimmy to help fasten a string bikini, “ Could you come in here and help me fasten this top?”

JIMMY TIES BIKINI

End up in changing room together caught up in bikini top
Jimmy can’t quite get the fastenings together. He pulls harder and harder.
The top snaps and flies around both of them.
They both become snared in the top.

SUN TAN LOTION

Sody: “I can’t really tell if it’s right for the beach. I need to see myself with sun tan lotion on.”
Sody hands Jimmy bottle of lotion and turns around. “Would you do me back there?”
Jimmy squirts the entire contents of the bottle into the air but he doesn’t care.
Jimmy drools onto Sody’s back.
Sody giggles, “Oooh! Sends shivers down my spine!”
Jimmy rubs his drool into her skin.

PRICE TAG BIKINI

Jimmy keeps showing suits so small that the price tag appears to get larger and larger until finally just a tag is visible.
The smaller the suit the bigger the price tag.
Sody takes hanger with 3 price tags hanging off it and comes out of dressing room wearing them.
Price tag bikini is $100.
Sody is tormented. $100. is her entire baby-sitting earnings, but she’s got to look good at the beach.
Sody gets the price tag bikini.

END

Sody buys a bikini and leaves. A perfect magical moment, we should yearn for Jimmy and Sody to get together again.

SODY BUYS BIKINI

Sody asks if she can wear the bikini home.
Jimmy nods yes.
He puts her old clothes in a shoe box and hands it to her.
He rings up the bill on the cash register.

SODY LOVES BIKINI

Centerfold of Sody wearing the bikini. She looks lovely. Her skin glistens.
Sody is thrilled.
She hugs Jimmy.

SODY HAS A BOYFRIEND

With a look of concern Sody looks at herself in the mirror . “Maybe my boyfriend will finally notice me.”
Jimmy is crushed; he looks to the ground.
Sody’s hand cups Jimmy’s cheek. She looks him straight in the eye and says, “I wish I had a boyfriend like you Jimmy! You’re so nice to me!”
Sody skips away waving good-bye. “See you at the beach!” she says.

Ha! I especially like the meat bikini. Are a bunch of dogs gonna jump in out of nowhere and try to eat it?

Seems really cool- I think the pairing of Sody and Jimmy is strange, but I think it works comedically.
