Scene I.

Randy Newman [singing to old timey stomp-pop]:
We're going to crash land
In this first scene
(Yeah) We're going unmanned
Unclothed by lycopene

This one stroke engine
Living on a family of four
Missile is like an Injun
Riding into the roar

Staring at holy cow
[fade, repeat]

Setting, a "Star Wars"-lit motel, Nicaragua suburbs.

Ben Kingsley [as Baron von Lopez] walks toward a sandwich on the bar, studies it, approves, shrugs.

Kevin Bacon [as Dweezil Zappa] tackles then straddles Kingsley.

You [as you in 20 years] stumble in.

You:
All right, we've really opened up.
(Shakes head)
F.ing Pandora's Box here.
F.ing 20 questions.

Bacon turns slowly to you; it's snowing in the Death Star. He unstraddles Kingsley.

Bacon:
All right, how do you play?

Kingsley is jettisoned.

You:
Choose a famous person,
I ask 20 yes or no questions.
Let's do it.

Bacon:
All right, got one.

You:
Is it Dweezil Zappa crash landing?

Bacon:
No.
