In honor of Friday Funnies, I have requested the ladies from 2 Girls on a bench to visit. Lest I detract from their awesomeness, I will turn it over to them ....
The Two Girls on a Bench have decided to start branching out and writing pilot ideas. We are so excited to be invited by Nurse's Notes to do a guest blog.
Since we're not anywhere close to being able to understand what it must be like to be a nurse or anything involving math or science (yes we are a sad female cliche only strong in the humanities) we have decided to pay homage to all nurses with the following sitcom pilot idea. Please note that in this sitcom all the nurses look like regular woman and all the men look like GQ supermodels.
Yeah, I like that, it's like Grey's Anatomy, but different.
Yeah, not really, but whatever you say. What should we call our sitcom?
We should do like a play on words, like the show "House" but we can call it "Shack".
Wait, what? Oh, I get it, a "shack", that's so dumb, I can't even tell you how dumb that is, I'm speechless.
Shut up and let's just call it Valley Hospital.
Ok, I like it, sound like General Hospital but with our own spin on it.
VALLEY HOSPITAL - PILOT
It's an ordinary day at the Van Nuys Valley Hospital. The sounds of clinking carts and people pacing back and forth hurriedly saving lives clutters the hallway with activity. JOANIE, a beautiful 30 something nurse with a true woman's body, sarcastic sense of humor and love of civil rights, walks down the hall with a premature baby in one hand, a box of donuts tucked under her arm and carries a cooler with a lifesaving kidney transplant donation.
Lila, get this baby into an incubator! Susan, get this kidney to the surgeon! Joe, get these donuts into the break room stat!
JOE, an unsuspecting strikingly good looking young man takes the donuts without delay.
I've got it covered, would you like some coffee? I know you just worked a double shift.
One Splenda and a dash of cinnamon?
You got it, what would I do without an assistant like you?
Joe runs off to get Joanie's coffee. Joanie heads to the nurses station to make sure the hospital is running in tip top shape.
SEAN, the handsome 40 something chief of surgery, stands at the nurses station waiting for Joanie.
So, are you going to accept the Nurse of the Year Award this year or are you going to turn it down like you do every year?
You know I don't have time for that silliness, I've got lives to save here Sean!
Just think about it Joanie, it would be good for the hospital.
Oh Sean, when are you going to learn that there's more to life than awards and prestige.
When you say you'll marry me?
Oh get back to work!
As Joanie and Sean laugh, a code red alert sounds and they rush down the hallway to revive an elderly man.
