Married a Virgin: The Movie Snippet II

INT. LESTER NERO’S APARTMENT -- DAY

Lester wakes up with a hangover. He walks over to the bathroom sink and drinks some water. He spits. He looks at himself. He lowers his head for a moment. He walks back over to his bed and picks up his phone. There are no new messages. There's a knock at the door. Lester goes to open it and finds it to be Chris with a bag of food and sports drink in tow.

CHRIS TUCKER

Hey, man. Brought you some food. I figured you'd be hungover today so I went ahead and got you some breakfast.

LESTER NERO

(Grabbing bag and drink) Thanks.

Lester lets Chris in. Chris looks at the apartment.

CHRIS TUCKER

This isn't a bad spot, man. You're doing good to say this is your first movie.

LESTER NERO

I made sure I could afford a place like this before I went and spent money on my true dream. Always good to have a fallback plan.

CHRIS TUCKER

I see.

LESTER NERO

Were you not hungover?

CHRIS TUCKER

(Smiling) Man, I gave you all the liquor. (Chuckles) I kept taking shots of soda. All I had was gas this morning.

LESTER NERO

(Annoyed) Really?

CHRIS TUCKER

Can you be mad, really? How old am I? I can't drink like that. Especially when I have two more shows tonight. MM mm! No! Besides, I brought you home. And it looked like you scored that one girl.

LESTER NERO

That groupie?

CHRIS TUCKER

You really gonna talk about her like that like you weren't all over the dance floor grabbing her booty and letting her twerk on you, man of God?

LESTER NERO

Shoo, she was offerin’ more than that.

CHRIS TUCKER

Like- sex?

LESTER NERO

Yeah.

CHRIS TUCKER

And you didn’t take it!?

LESTER NERO

Bruh... You know who I am, right?

CHRIS TUCKER

I mean yeah, but I didn’t think you’d turn that down. She was FINE. Who are you?

They both chuckle.

LESTER NERO

Don’t get me wrong. I thought about it... but I’m just not in the mood, and I think tellin’ her I was a virgin turned her off. Still got her number though.

CHRIS TUCKER

So you gonna call her?

LESTER NERO

Probably not. (Chuckles)

CHRIS TUCKER

Wow. And she had all that booty!

LESTER NERO

(Chuckles) I’m good on that. I can see if she’ll take your number.

CHRIS TUCKER

Oh NO. I got the number to the girl I wanted. Got more than that too. But why you not gonna pursue that other girl? I mean I know it’s the right thing to do as a Christian, but many guys believe that and still go sleeping around.

LESTER NERO

Just because everyone else does it, doesn’t mean I have to.

CHRIS TUCKER

I know THAT, but I’m saying, what drove you to be this guy? Like, why take the route that leads to being 31 and a virgin?

LESTER NERO

Well... (Thinks) I guess it started with my parents getting divorced. I saw what it did to my mom- what it still does to all of us, and I said to myself, I can’t experience that. I’ve always told myself I’ll be a one-woman man and that I’d wait until I’m married. It’s what God wants for us and it just seemed less troublesome. I mean don’t get me wrong, I still did get caught up in pornography for a long while but that’s just been a goal of mine. I’ll be a virgin when I’m married.

CHRIS TUCKER

Shoot, I wish I had that when I was younger.

LESTER NERO

And that’s the thing (points at him). That’s what I don’t want to be. Another man waiting until they’re in their forties to realize all that sleeping around wasn’t worth it. No offense.

Lester opens the bottle and drinks.

CHRIS TUCKER

Nah, I get it, man. Would’ve saved me a lot of trouble if I would’ve did that.

LESTER NERO

Exactly. See. And the problem with most men is that they’ll come to these realizations later on in life, but still encourage their sons to engage in it like they did. We’ve become so accustomed to failure that we think we have to fail in order to get the lesson. I’ve seen how sex drives people crazy. I’ve seen boys AND girls get addicted to sex, and I’m just like... Didn’t God tell us to abstain from sexual immorality? It’s not like He didn’t tell us that for no reason. You can look around and see the ridiculous amounts of broken homes, especially in the black community. Again, no offense.

CHRIS TUCKER

Nah, I get it. I see it.

LESTER NERO

We see the number of abortions rising, we see the number of failed relationships rising, and we sit here and act like we don’t see the problem... We have zero self-control. We just look at a person and think it’s okay to sleep with them, even when they’re married- shoot, even when WE’RE married. And we wonder why we don’t have many lasting relationships to look up to anymore. We keep failing for every trick Satan throws at us! What do you think happens over time, it gets better? Really!?

Lester digs in his bag, pulls out the sandwich, and takes a bite.
