(Margaret is in her house. She is making herself a sandwich.)

Margaret: Ah, I like day offs.

(Margaret tries to take a bite of the sandwich, but finds a brown bug in it.)

Margaret: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! A cockroach! Eww!

(Margaret calls on the phone to an exterminator company.)

Margaret: Hello? I need you're help! There is a cockroach in my sandwich, and I'm afraid of bugs!

Man: Okay ma'am, calm down. We will be here soon enough.

Margaret: Okay.


(Margaret's house is being fumigated to kill the infestation of the bugs.)

Exterminator: Well, good thing you called us. You gotta classic: Cockroach infestation.

Margaret: Oh no!

Exterminator: Ah, It's nothing to worry about. All we have to do is fumigate you're house for two weeks.

Margaret: Two weeks?!

Exterminator: Well, It's either that or have cockroaches in you're wall.

Margaret: But where am I gonna stay?!

Exterminator: Look lady, I'm just an exterminator, not Mother Teresa.

Margaret(Sarcastic): Thanks for the help. Can you at least give me a quarter?

Exterminator(Angrily): Fine.

Margaret(Swipes it out of his hand): Thanks.

(Margaret goes to a telephone booth. She inserts a quarter. She dials a number.)

Margaret: Eileen, are you there?

(A screen splits between Margaret and Eileen.)

Eileen: Oh, hi, Margaret.

Margaret: Eileen, this is really important. My house is being fumigated for two weeks and I need a place to stay. Do you mind if I stay at you're house during that time?

Eileen: Sorry, Margaret, but I'm really busy these two weeks.

Margaret: With what?

Eileen: Can't say.

Margaret: Why not?

Eileen: I'm just really busy. I hope you understand.

Margaret: But-.

Eileen: Bye!

(Eileen hangs up.)

(Eileen is making a statue of Rigby.)

Eileen: There, done. All I have to do is add a six-pack on his abs and use brown paint and I'll have fun with this all night.

(Margaret angrily puts the phone back in the booth.)

Margaret: Some friend you are, Eileen.

(Margaret and Mordecai bump into each other.)

(Mordecai helps Margaret up.)

Mordecai: Oh, crap! Sorry, Margaret!

Margaret: It's okay, It's okay. I'm fine.

Mordecai: What's wrong? You seem a little mad.

Margaret: Sorry, but I got kicked out of my house thanks to stupid cockroaches. Ugh!

Mordecai: That sucks.

Margaret: Don't remind me.

Mordecai: you have a place to stay?

Margaret: No...........I guess I won't have a place to stay.........huh.......

Mordecai: Wait!

Margaret: What?

Mordecai: Why don't you stay at The Park until they go away?

Margaret: Sure. But, is Benson cool with that?

Mordecai: Eh, I'm pretty sure he'll let you stay.

(Cut to later. Mordecai and Margaret are at The Park.)

Mordecai: Look, Benson, I need to ask you something.

Benson: Go ahead, but make it quick.

Mordecai: Can Margaret stay here for two weeks? She's having her house fumigated, and she needs a place to stay.

Benson: Oh, you're that Coffee Shop girl Mordecai droans on about.

(Mordecai covers Benson's mouth.)

Mordecai: (Nervous): Hahahha, good one, Benson! He's such a joker!

Benson: (Muffled): Get your hands off of me!

Mordecai: Sorry! Look, is there any way Margaret can be here?

Benson: Hmm......... Well, we could use another worker around here.

Margaret: Me work here? But I'm busy at the Coffee Shop.

Benson: Well, if you want a place to stay, then you're gonna have to work here.

Margaret: Fine. What do you want me to do?

Benson: Well, before you start working here, I'd recommend meeting your fellow workers and seeing where you're going to live.

Margaret: Okay.

(Benson, Margaret and Mordecai go in Pops's House.)

Benson: This is The Park's house, owned by Mr. Maellard and his son, Pops.

Margaret: Hmm, not bad.

(Benson brings Pops from the kitchen to the living room.)

Benson: This is Pops Maellard, but you can call him Pops.

Pops: Why hello there, newest worker!

Margaret: Hey Pops. What's up?

Pops: Why the sky of course. Not to mention clouds and birds and-.

Margaret: No, no. I mean, what's going on with you?

Pops: Oh. In that case, I am currently in the process of listening to my Phonograph.

Margaret: Cool.

Pops: Yes, it is a cold day today.

Margaret: No, I meant-. Never mind.

Benson: Sorry about Pops. He's not exactly up to date in terms.

Margaret: It's okay.

(The three go upstairs.)

Benson: This is the upstairs. There's a bathroom, and bedrooms.

Margaret: That's cool.

Mordecai: And this is me and Rigby's room.

Margaret: Huh...... it could be cleaner.

Mordecai: Okay, then I'll clean it!

Margaret: You don't have to.

Mordecai: Okay, then I'll clean it later!

Margaret: Okay, if that's what you want.

Benson: (Coughs purposely): Let's move on.

(The three walk downstairs and into the kitchen.)

Benson: Anyway, this is the kitchen, where the workers eat.

Margaret: Well, yeah, I figured that much.

(Rigby is in the garbage.)

Benson: Rigby!

Rigby: (In garbage): What? Can't a raccoon get a good snack from the garbage?

(Benson facepalms and sighs.)

Benson: I am so sorry Margaret.

Margaret: It's fine, let's just move on.

(The three then go outside.)

Benson: And this is Muscle Man and Hi Five Ghost's Trailer.

(Benson knocks on the door.)

Benson: Muscle Man, Fives, come out here. We have a new worker.

Muscle Man: Ugh.........but we're playing a video game!

Benson: I don't care. Either pause it or turn it off.

Muscle Man: But bro! It's so awesome! I don't want to lose my mojo!

Benson: Either stop playing that game or you're fired!

Muscle Man: Ugh..........fine!

(Muscle Man and Fives come out.)

Margaret: Oh............I remember you. You were that person that was eating an ice cream sandwich.

Muscle Man: Yep, that's right bro! I also wanted to kiss your lady lips!

Margaret: Ugh.

Muscle Man: You know who else wants to kiss lady lips?! My mom! Hahahahha!

Margaret: So immature.

Muscle Man: You know who else is so immature?! My mom! (Rips off shirt and twirls it.) Yeah, I know. I'm hot. It's okay. You can kiss my lips.

Margaret: Uh, I don't. Benson, can we move on please?

Benson: Sure.

Muscle Man: If ya need me baby, I'll be here!

Margaret: (Thinking): What a couple of oddballs.

(They then go to Skips's Garage.)

Benson: Margaret, this is Skips, our handyman. He always fixes everything and knows all the solutions to everything.

Skips: (blushing; slightly) He he, not everything.

Margaret: Cool.

Benson: He also saves The Park from disasters caused by a certain two.

(Looks at Mordecai.)

Mordecai: In my defense, Rigby causes them mostly.

Margaret: Anyway...........

Benson: Well, Margaret, that's pretty much all you need to know about The Park. You start tomorrow, 6 AM sharp.

Margaret: Gotcha.

(Cut to the morning. Margaret is awake, barely.)

Margaret: Uh..........I need coffee.

Benson: I'm sorry Margaret, but we ran out of coffee.

Margaret: What?! No coffee?! I need coffee! I can't work without it!

Mordecai: Margaret, Margaret, calm down! It's okay! We can go to the Coffee Shop.

Margaret: Whatever.

Benson: All right, but you two better back before 6!

(Cuts to them in the Coffee Shop.)

Mordecai: What kind do you want Margaret?

Margaret: I don't care, as long as it isn't decaf.

(New waiter approaches.)

Mordecai: Who are you?

Waiter: I'm Margaret's replacement.

Mordecai: Where's Eileen?

Waiter: She called in sick today.

(Cuts to Eileen kissing her model of Rigby.)

Mordecai: Oh.

Waiter: So anyway, what kind of coffee guys?

Mordecai: We'll have the usual, right Margaret?

Margaret: Yeah, whatever.

Waiter: Okay. I'll get your orders soon.

(Cut to a few minutes later.)

Waiter: Here you two go.

Mordecai: (Sips): Eh, not as good as Margaret's.

Margaret: (Barely awake): Uh....... (Sips). (Immediately awakens entirely and gets energetic.) Ah......... Let's go Mordecai. We don't want Benson mad.

Mordecai: Uh okay.

(Grabs Mordecai by his hand.)

Mordecai: (Thinking): She's touching my hand she's touching my hand she's touching my hand!

Margaret: You okay? You're sweating.

Mordecai: Nah, It's

Margaret: Oh. Well, let's keep going!

(Mordecai has hearts around him.)

(Cut to the two at The Park.)

Benson: Finally! There you two are! Do you know what time it is?!

Mordecai: Uh..........

Benson: 6:01! 6:01! One minute late! I said 6 sharp, not 6:01!

Mordecai: Come on Benson, just one minute off.

Benson: No, one minute late! I knew I shouldn't have trusted you two!

Margaret: Look, Benson. Can we just got to work now that we're here?

Benson: All right, fine. I will write this down as a warning for you Margaret. You get three. If you fail all three, you're fired!

Margaret: What?!

Benson: Want a second warning?!


Benson: That's what I thought. Now get back to work right now!

(Margaret and Mordecai walk away.)

Margaret: Why is he such a grouch?

Mordecai: He probably has a screw stuck in his butt.

(The two laugh.)

Mordecai: (Thinking): Yes, I made her laugh!

Margaret: Well, we better start working. See ya later!

(Margaret walks away.)


Mordecai: Hey, uh, Benson, mind if I sleep with Margaret tonight?

Benson: I know you love her.

Mordecai: What?! Pfft! Of course not, we're just friends!

Benson: Listen, Mordecai. I know how you feel. I feel the same about Audrey and, a certain gumball machine I loved long ago......... but, the point is, you can't make your move on a girl unless you try.

Mordecai: I do! I try, and try, and try, but every time I do, I wimp out at the last minute because I get nervous.

Benson: I know. I felt the same way back then. But you just gotta be yourself and keep the butterflies under control. That way, you can make a move on her without chickening out.

Mordecai: (Deep breath): You're right.

Benson: Here, go ahead and make your move. (Throws keys at Mordecai.)

Mordecai: (Catches them): Thanks Benson!

(Mordecai runs away.)

(Mordecai goes into Margaret's room.)

Margaret: Oh, hey, Mordecai. What's up?

Mordecai: Hey. (Thinking): Don't say anything stupid. (Not thinking): The sky.

(Margaret chuckles.)

Margaret: So, what did you come in here for?

Mordecai: Well, I'm getting tired of Rigby's constant snoring, so I decided to sleep in here with you tonight. Is that okay?

Margaret: Of course! It gets lonely in here by myself.

Mordecai: (Voice cracking): Yes! (Clears throat; trying to sound manly): Uh, I mean, "Yes"!

Margaret: (chuckling): You're so funny, Mordecai!

Mordecai: So, uh, what should we do?

Margaret: Hm............

(Mordecai falls on Margaret.)

Margaret: Mordecai! Are you okay?!

Mordecai: I'm fine.

Margaret: Good. So, uh, are you gonna get up now?

Mordecai: Nah. I wanna stay like this for a few minutes.

Margaret: Uh, okay. So, uh, what's on your mind?

Mordecai: (Voice cracking): Nothing.

Margaret: Are you sure? I can see you sweating.

Mordecai: Uh.........uh......... I gotta go!

Margaret: Mordecai!

(Mordecai leaves and goes into the bathroom.)

Mordecai: (Washing his face): You're such an idiot! You had the chance, and you blew it! Idiot, idiot, idiot! (Banging his head on sink while saying "Idiot")

(Margaret overhears it.)

Margaret: Mordecai, are you alright?

Mordecai: I'm fine. Just go back into your room.

Margaret: Are you sure?

Mordecai: Yes. I'll be out in a minute.

(Mordecai gets back in the room.)

Mordecai: Hey, sorry about that.

Margaret: I overheard. What's bothering you?

Mordecai: It's nothing. Just something stupid.

Margaret: Mordecai, we're friends. You can tell me anything. Well, mostly. Really, what's on your mind?

Mordecai: I told you it's nothing. And I'm not nervous, if that's what you're thinking!

Margaret: Okay, then what's your name?

Mordecai: Iacedrom.

Margaret: Look, calm down, and tell me what's troubling you.

Mordecai: Okay....... look, ever since I met you, I've loved everything about you. I've always wanted to be more than friends. Every time I saw you with boyfriends, it made me jealous and hate myself for it because I was too chicken to tell you how I really feel. That's why I dated CJ, to make you jealous since I thought you were marrying your cousin. I know you've known a little bit about it since that song I sang for you, but it's been going on much longer than that. The point is, I love you Margaret, and I don't want anyone but you! But, I have only one question. Do you feel the same about me like I do about you?

Margaret: (tearing up): Oh, Mordecai, that is the sweetest thing anyone has ever told me! I love you too!

(Margaret hugs Mordecai. They both cry tears of joy.)

(Benson overhears this.)

Benson: Another successful match arranged by love doctor Benson.

(Mordecai and Margaret get into their bed.)

Mordecai: Hey, it's like we're husband and wife.

Margaret: (Chuckles): We're not at that point yet, lover boy.

Mordecai: And our kid's names are Mary and Martin.

Margaret: (Chuckles): In your dreams.

(Mordecai crosses out "Name kids Mary and Martin" as "She doesn't like it" on "What to Do When Me & Margaret are a Couple".)

Mordecai: Hey, I'm getting sleepy, I'm gonna hit the hay. So, uh, maybe you could give me a good night kiss?

Margaret: Sure. (Kisses Mordecai's forehead.)

(Mordecai is frozen.)

Mordecai: (Thinking): She kisses me she kissed me she kissed me!

(That morning.)

Margaret: You're still frozen like that?

Mordecai: Yes.

Margaret: Well, I'll see you later at work, I guess.

(The next day.)

Margaret: Well, it appears my house is already cockroach free. Well, I guess I'll get going.

(Margaret has a briefcase and is leaving.)

Rigby: Whatever, bye.

Benson: See ya, coffee shop girl.

Skips: Bye Margaret.

Pops: Farewell, Margaret. I hope to see you once more.

Muscle Man: See ya bro! Maybe I can kiss your lady lips next time!

Mordecai: Wait, Margaret!

Margaret: What?

Mordecai: Maybe we can have a goodbye kiss? You know, on the lips?

Margaret: Alright.

(Margaret walks up to Mordecai. The two are about to kiss, until.)

Eileen: (Grabbing Margaret with her hand): Margaret, Margaret, Margaret! Come with me and look what I made!

Margaret: Wait, Eileen!

Eileen: There's no time for waiting! You gotta see it!

Mordecai: I was so close this time!

Rigby: Ha ha, I knew you two wouldn't kiss!

(Mordecai punches Rigby.)

Rigby: Ow!

(Mordecai's cell phone rings.)

Mordecai: Hello?

Margaret: Hey, so, about our kiss.......... maybe we can do it over tonight at my house, and maybe you can stay over?

Mordecai: It's a date! Uh, I mean, sure!

Margaret: (Chuckles): See ya then!

(The call ends.)

Mordecai: (Jumps in midair and stays there)

The End.
