The Interview [Scriptwriting]

INT: (OFFICE) – SCENE BEGINS WITH A CONCLUDING INTERVIEW.

MR. OGLEVIE
Welcome to the team! Just check in
with HR Monday morning. Do you
have any questions?

SIMON AND MR. OGLEVIE SHAKE HANDS.

SIMON
No. I’m excited to get to work!
Super excited!

SIMON GETS UP TO LEAVE. THEN HE TURNS AROUND TO FACE MR.
OGLEVIE.

SIMON
Actually, I do. Why is it required
to fill out an application if I
already submitted my resume?

MR. OGLEVIE
Well, we just like to have them
for our records.

SIMON
Can’t you just keep the resume for
your records?

MR. OGLEVIE
Of course! It’s just that our
application has a certain format
that’s easier to follow.

SIMON
Yeah, but… they pretty much say
the same thing, wouldn’t you
agree?

SIMON and MR. OGLEVIE stare at each other for a beat.

MR. OGLEVIE
Our application has our logo on
it.

SIMON
(Mind completely blown)
Wow. That is incredibly efficient!

SIMON SHAKES HANDS WITH MR. OGLEVIE AND TURNS TO LEAVE
AGAIN.

SIMON(CONT’D)
I’m going to learn so much here.
Thank you Mr. Oglevie!

SIMON TURNS TO LEAVE AGAIN.

MR. OGLEVIE
Glad to have you on the team. Oh,
Simon! To make this whole thing
official, we’re going to need you
to fill out our online
application.

    So subtle. So true. So sad. So infuriating.
