Elevate me - Script idea

By Lizziemackie

I had a dream about this and I though I should share the idea and see if anyone can perfect it.

Elevate me - Lizzie Mackie

Characters

James - A geeky accountant who is quietly in love with Lilly
Lilly - the beautiful boss’s assistant who is very focused on her work and has no idea James exists

______________________________________________________________

(Set in an elevator, James enters in and the doors begin to close)

Lilly
Hold the door please!

(James quickly holds the door and pulls himself together as Lilly gallops in holding a small pile of papers)

Thanks!

James
4th floor right?

Lilly
…Yeah… How did you know?

(Doors close)

James
…I’ve seen you around.

Lilly
Oh! Not surprising. Michael has be running around like a headless chicken.
(Lilly Smiles which makes James smile)

James
The new contract is having that effect on everyone.

Lilly
You work for Michael too?

James
Yes actually I’m his accountant.

Lilly
Really? I haven’t seen you around.


James
I drop by your office almost every day.

(Lilly feeling rather embarrassed)

Lilly
Oh…

(The elevator jolts to a halt. Lilly drops the papers and James assists Lilly from falling)

James
Are you ok?

(Lilly, a little shaken, straightens herself out)

Lilly
Yeah I’m fine.

(Lilly begins to tidy the papers on the floor James helps)


I suppose this isn’t a good time to say I’m claustrophobic?


(Lilly puts on a brave face and James Laughs. James helps Lilly up)


James
No not particularly, but it’ll be fine I promise.

(James heads to the emergency phone and picks it up)

Hi there, ah… Lilly and I are stuck in the elevator... Oh ok great… Thanks, bye.

(puts phone down)

They’re fixing it.


Lilly
Thanks…Ah, how is it that you know my name when I don’t know yours?

(James all flustered begins fiddle with the cuff of his sleeve)

James
Um.. Well I mean you’re Lilly the boss’s assistant…who doesn’t know your name?

Lilly
Oh… Well I still don’t know your name.

James
I’m sorry um I’m James
(James and Lilly shake hands)

Lilly
It’s a pleasure

James
No the pleasure is all mine Lilly

(Lilly begins to blush and their hands are still clasped together. Lilly tries to let go but James is fixated on her smile then realises)

Oh Sorry.

Lilly
That’s alright… Hey I think I remember you. Were you at the Christmas party?

James
Yeah actually ah… I was your secret Santa.

Lilly
Oh yeah that’s right! It was a beautiful gift too, Thank-you.

James
You’re more than welcome, and I have to say you looked beautiful that night. I mean that dress… you looked stunning.

(Lilly begins to blush)

Lilly
Thank-you, I don’t know what to say to that.

(The elevator jolts into life and Lilly falls onto James. Their noses not quite touching)

James
We’ve got to stop bumping into each other like this.

(Lilly and James laugh. James brushes a strand of hair from Lilly’s face. They are about to kiss when the door opens)

Lilly
Well this is my stop. I’ll see you around then… ah…

James
…James

Lilly
Right yeah.

(Lilly walks away leaving James in the elevator. James lets out a big sigh)
