    all smashed. He rushes into the
    kitchen, looks around crazily–

    PRINCE
    Daddd…!

    Nothing but the decay of his scream.
    The BASEMENT door is ajar. He cuts to
    it quickly, pulls it open, peers
    frantically into the darkness below. He
    snaps ON the light…

    (101) OMIT

    (102) EXT. PRINCE’S HOUSE — NIGHT

    SIRENS! The SCENE is a riot of COLOR
    and FRENZY. A POLICE CAR, LIGHTS
    FLASHING, skids into the drive.
    NEIGHBORS jam the STREETS. POLICE CARS
    are parked all around.

    (103) INT. BASEMENT, PRINCE’S HOUSE — NIGHT

    CHAOS! The BASEMENT is PACKED with
    COPS. Prince’s father is strapped into
    a gurney, staring dully at the ceiling.
    PHOTOGRAPHERS snap pictures as
    PARAMEDICS work feverishly over him.
    I.V. UNITS are pushed into his veins.
    An OXYGEN MASK is placed over his nose
    and mouth. Huge white bandages are
    bunched up along the back of his head.
    His Mother is kneeling by the gurney,
    crying hysterically, grasping his hands
    in a white panic. TWO COPS support her.
    Someone is SHOUTING instructions.
    RADIOS crackle incessantly. A MEDIC
    cries–

    MEDIC
    Lift!

    And the gurney is hoisted up the stairs
    quickly, the bulk of the crowd
    following, his Mother supported as she
    ascends the stairs.
