EXT. MONKEY CAGE DAY

Joshua leans on the fence looking at Min Ji Next to a sign that says; Please dont feed the animals. Joshua watches as Min Ji wings on the wooden swing in his cage, then jumps off and rolls as it hits Min Ji hits the ground. When Min Ji stands back up he rubs his head before going back to playing. Despite there being a zoo trashcan only three feet away next to a bench Joshua is standing by, Joshua finishes with the banana, looks back and forth, and then throws the peel on the ground. Joshua looks at Min Ji who is chewing on a kids plastic ABC book, and then Joshua walks away. Shortly after Bill a photographer walks up to the monkey cage and looks at Min Ji who is sitting on a stump posing with one hand holding up his chin and the other hand on his side. Bill jumps to the chance to take Min Jis picture and raises the camera to his face to take it. Bill doesnt like the way the light is on Min Ji, so Bill slides to the left without looking where he is going. Bills foot touches the peel and Bill is sent slipping and falling back to the ground still holding the camera to his face. Angry, Bill looks around for the cause of his fall and sees the banana peel. Bill picks up the banana peel and throws the peel into Min Jis cage and walks away red faced, holding his back as he walks. Min Ji notices the banana peel lying on the ground and walks over to it curiously. Min Ji scratches his head, looks to the top of his cage where Joshua and Bill stood, leans over, grabs the peel and wastes no time praying thanks to God before eating the peel whole. Min Ji pulls out a napkin and wipes off his mouth and tucks it back into his pocket. Suddenly Min Ji starts rubbing his stomach and falls over to the ground.

EXT. STREET DAY

An ambulance rushes down the country road, lights and sirens accompany the roar of the engine.

INT VETERNARION DAY

Min Ji is lying on the table outstretched and rubbing his stomach still while his trainer, Abraham paces back and forth in the room looking with a worried face, then to the door before pacing back and forth again. Doctor Larry walks in the door smiling at Abraham and frowning at Min Ji who is staring back at Doctor Larry still holding his stomach. Doctor Larry begins to speak in a strange baby talk.



DOCTOR LARRY


What seems to be the matter?



Doctor Larry looks up at Abraham who catches eye contact.



DOCTOR LARRY


Well





ABRAHAM


Well what?





DOCTOR LARRY


Whats his name?





ABRAHAM


Oh! Sorry I was dazing out looking at that nice pen! Where did you get it?





DOCTOR LARRY


Oh, to tell you the truth, the wife got it for me last Christmas!





ABRAHAM


Wow you use it every day and it never runs out of ink!





DOCTOR LARRY


Oh no.



Doctor Larry pulls the pen out of his white coat and pulls the lid off, then gives it to Abraham.



DOCTOR LARRY


See, the ink is replaceable!





ABRAHAM


Oh yeah! Thats a real nice pen!





DOCTOR LARRY


Why thank you!





ABRAHAM


Min Ji





DOCTOR LARRY


Minky?





ABRAHAM


No Min Ji





DOCTOR LARRY


Minnie?



Abraham pronounces it slower.





ABRAHAM


Min Ji





DOCTOR LARRY


Ill tell you, Im still not getting it Could you spell it out for me?



Doctor Larry pulls a small notebook from his pocket and gives it to Abraham. The doctor looks back down at Min Ji and starts to tickle the sides of Min Jis stomach making Min Ji squirm on the table and Doctor Larry laughs.



ABRAHAM


Umm, Doctor?





DOCTOR LARRY


Yes?





ABRAHAM


I need to borrow your pen to write his name down!





DOCTOR LARRY


Oh yes!



Doctor Larry stands up, pulls the pen out of his front pocket on his coat, and gives it to Abraham. Abraham looks at Min Ji then writes his name down on the notebook and gives it back to Doctor Larry.



DOCTOR LARRY


Min Ji! Alright, well then What is wrong with Min Ji today?





ABRAHAM


There seems to be something wrong with his stomach, might have been something he ate.





DOCTOR LARRY


Great maybe I should just hand over my stethoscope and let you do everything since you know so much.



Doctor Larry puts the stethoscope on before any more words can be exchanged and puts the tool up to Min Jis chest; Min Ji jumps because of the coldness on his fur.



DOCTOR LARRY


Sorry buddy!



Doctor Larry takes the tool and blows on it to make it warm, then puts it in a cup in his hands before putting back down to Min Jis chest. Doctor Larry listens for a few seconds.



DOCTOR LARRY


Hmm

A few more seconds pass; Abraham and Min Ji are both watching Doctor Larry very intently.



DOCTOR LARRY


Interesting



Doctor Larry looks Min Ji in the eyes and speaks in his odd baby voice.



DOCTOR LARRY


Min Ji, can I take a look inside your mouth?



Doctor Larry turns to his counter and fumbles around with one of the glass jars against the wall. Min Ji shakes his head no as he looks at Abraham until Doctor Larry turns around with a cotton swab on a stick.



ABRAHAM


Its ok Min Ji.



Abraham walks over to Min Ji and starts to rub his head and hold his hand. Doctor Larry moves closer to Min Jis face, he talks to Min Ji in a normal voice as he moves his hand toward Min Jis mouth. The other hand grabs Min Jis bottom Jaw and pulls down.



DOCTOR LARRY


Im going to need to hold youre mouth open as I dab around inside.



Min Ji snaps his mouth shut, turns his head, and swings his free arm up to hit the cotton swab on a stick in Doctor Larrys hand to the ground. Doctor Larry brings his hand back fast and then bends down to pick up the cotton swab on a stick. Min Ji slaps his butt as he leans down making Doctor Larry jump up quickly.



DOCTOR LARRY


I have to take a look if you ever want to feel better Min Ji.



Min Ji looks at Abraham and shakes his head viciously back and forth as Abraham shakes his head yes. Abrahams head rubbing stops and his hand tightens to his hair. Min Ji tries to shake his head no but Doctor Larry grabs the bottom of his jaw more tightly and his other hand grabs Min Jis other hand. Doctor Larry grabs the stick side of the cotton swab on a stick with his teeth and leans down to Min Jis mouth to swab then he leans up a little more and looks inside his mouth.



DOCTOR LARRY


Wait a second





ABRAHAM


Whats up doc?



Doctor Larry and Min Ji join Abraham in laughing out loud for a second but then Doctor Larry and Min Ji stop.



ABRAHAM


You know I always wanted to say that, this time it just slipped out.





DOCTOR LARRY


Yeah, you try to be me and have to laugh at that stupid cartoon joke every time.





ABRAHAM


Huh?





DOCTOR LARRY


Never mind that!



Doctor Larry turns back to his counter and spits out the stick, Abraham lets go of Min Ji also. Doctor Larry leans down to the bottom cabinet on the counter and stands up turning around with a saw. Min Ji instantly goes stiff and Abraham jumps back leaving Min Ji without someone to comfort him.



ABRAHAM


Wha!



Excited Min Ji tries to sit up from the tables, but grabs his stomach in pain and falls back down. Doctor Larry walks towards Min Ji holding the saw in the air. He brings it down slowly onto Min Jis stomach, while Min Ji shakes in his suit on the table. Doctor Larrys face slowly goes from serious to a smile.



DOCTOR LARRY


Or Min Ji ate a banana peel causing him to have upset stomach.



Doctor Larry turns back to the counter and puts the saw down on the top of the counter; he pulls out the top drawer and looks around for a second before pulling out some pills in a pill bottle.




ABRAHAM


How did you figure that out without even doing any tests?





DOCTOR LARRY


Easy, Min Ji still has some pieces in his teeth! Can Min Ji take pills?



Doctor Larry takes one of the pills out and gives it to Abraham. Abraham puts the pill in his mouth and swallows it.



ABRAHAM


Sure, thanks!





DOCTOR LARRY


That was for Min Ji. It was to make Min Ji speed up processing of the bad banana peel.

Abraham looks at Min Ji who is staring back at Abraham whose glance shoots to Doctor Larry.



ABRAHAM


Listen, if it was up to me that would have been easier with some water, but I had to work with what I got. Im sure you have something else for him



Min Ji shakes his head at Abraham.



DOCTOR LARRY


You fool that was a laxative.



Abrahams face gets flush.



ABRAHAM


I think its working!



Abraham runs out the door screaming.



ABRAHAM


Wheres the bathroom?



A door slams shut close to the room where Min Ji is looking at the doctor who is turned around at the counter sorting through the different pills from the bottle.



DOCTOR LARRY


Seems like I dont have any more of those laxatives



Doctor Larry turns around once more with the saw in his hands.



DOCTOR LARRY


Looks like were going to need to dive in and find it!



Instantly Min Ji starts to shake and hold his stomach once more on this back on the table.



DOCTOR LARRY


Got you again! But



The Serious look on Doctor Larrys face turns to a smirk and he puts the saw back on top of the counter. Doctor Larry turns back around holding a needle, squirting a little out to get the air out.



DOCTOR LARRY


You are going to need a shot.



Min Ji goes stiff as Doctor Larry grabs hold of Min Jis arm and aims the needle.

INT. HALL DAY

DOCTOR LARRY

Abraham and Min Ji begin to speed up.



DOCTOR LARRY
