SOUP GOD
I am the soup god… Gordon, I must quest you with this journey… I know you have cancer, and i have a cure
GORDON
What shall I do Mighty Soup God?
SOUP GOD
Find Louie the soup chef, he shall help you…
GORDON

SOUP GOD
Yes, I’m the soup god, what did you expect?
GORDON
Ah, well, I will find Louie The Soup Chef, and I shall make the soup.
FADE BACK TO REALITY:
GORDON
Time to find Louie…
LOUIE
Hey! My name is Louie! Do you want some soup?
GORDON
That’s exactly what I want…
WIPE TRANSITION:
INT. LOUIE’S SOUP SHOP
LOUIE
So… you want to make my cancer curing soup?
GORDON
Yes! I need it to survive!
LOUIE
Ok, here’s the recipe… but i must warn you, it is an untested soup.
GORDON
(Looks over recipe)
CLOSE UP OF INGREDIENTS
DISGUSTING! WHAT ARE THESE INGREDIENTS?!?
LOUIE
The cancer curing kind…
GORDON
I’m afraid I’d rather die than eat this, so that’s what I’ll do, Die.
FADE TO VISION:
SOUP GOD
The all seeing soup god has returned!!! I see that you don’t think the soup will taste good…
GORDON
Exactly, I mean… PINEAPPLE AND CORN SYRUP?!? WHAT!!!
SOUP GOD
Pineapple adds contrast of flavors, and corn syrup, well, i don’t know what that’s for… but you will make this soup, and it will taste amazing…

GORDON
I’ll believe you this time mighty soup god. But if you betray me with bad tasting soup. I will not follow you any more…
SOUP GOD
Yeah, that’s fair.
BACK TO REALITY:
LOUIE
Who were you talking to?
GORDON
The mighty soup god…
LOUIE
Oh! He’s my favorite god!
GORDON
let’s get to work, shall we…
FADE TO BLACK:
GORDON
(Mixing soup in cauldron)
Ah, it is complete, time for a little taste,
(takes soup ladle and takes sip of soup,)
Gordon starts to glow, his feet lift above the ground, suddenly, he glows more and more, then, the energy releases from him, a massive explosion occurs

CUT TO BLACK:
INT. SOUP WORKSHOP RUINS
Gordon is on the floor of what remains of the soup workshop, there is fire everywhere, almost everything is destroyed, appears as though he is dead, he slowly opens his eyes, he gets up slowly and groans, looks around frantically, louie is dead on the floor, Gordon rushes toward him
GORDON
wake up! Louie! Louie! LOUIE WAKE UP!!!
(looks around)
oh no… the soup shop is gone, as well as the ingredients i needed for the soup
QUICK FADE TO BLACK:
Gordon picks up recipe, it now has charred edges, walks outside

FADE TO VISION:
SOUP GOD
I am sorry about what happened, but you must continue on your quest
GORDON
What Quest, it’s all a failure, Louie the soup chef died because of this.
SOUP GOD
He died because you didn’t look over the recipe properly, you were looking for taste, not substance…
GORDON
(sarcastically gasps)
whatever
SOUP GOD
you will continue your quest, you must continue your quest…
BACK TO REALITY:
Gordon looks down, then looks up quickly with a newfound dedication
GORDON
I will make the soup, i will finish my quest!
(walks into soup workshop and immediately walks back out)
Oh right! the ingredients are destroyed, well, i guess its time to get some new ones
MONTAGE: GORDON HARVESTING PINEAPPLE FROM A TREE, STEALING GIANT EGG WHILE GIANT BIRD CHASES AFTER HIM, GOING TO SUPERMARKET AND BUYING UP REST OF INGREDIENTS.
