FADE IN:

INT. CLUB – NIGHT

Michael signs autographs for a bunch of eager fans.

As he goes from one female dressed like a hoochie hottie to another dressed down simple with a hat covering her eyes, all of a sudden the plain Jane PUSHES Michael just as he steps UP to her… (Simultaneous with BEAT COMING IN)

… And immediately starts dancing in an aggressive style towards him.

As the LYRICS KICK IN she tosses her hat away (revealing Britney’s character) and continues with her offense as the challenger of this dance-off. Michael just stands there as cool a cat while he lets her do her thing.

LYRICS

Deceitful eyes

she’s got those come get me thighs

She only knows

how low that she can go

She speaks the lines

that can control my mind

Wherever she goes

I know my eyes follow

Britney blows a deadly kiss to him as part of her choreography…

LYRICS

She blew a kiss

I swear that it was meant

Only for me

Then spoke with her body

Her only goal

is just to take control

I can’t believe that I can’t tell her no

Done with her first act,she freezes as if becoming an instant statue…

Michael immediately answering her challenge with aggressive moves of his own while adding the slickness only he can pull off…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

That girl I

can’t take her

Should have known she was a heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen right through

her she’s a heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen it coming heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

He finishes up with a move so powerful the energy of it throws Britt across the floor and out the door…

LYRICS

Should have seen right through her

She’s a heartbreaker

… But her recovery is as smooth as silk as she does a tumble roll in reverse right back up to her feet. She’s now in the middle of the street, camera shooting up her body and coming to rest on her face as she comes to rest with the move.

LYRICS

She played a game

with such an innocent face

With every verse her dancing becomes more and more alive as she returns to her offensive state… (Staying in place)

LYRICS

But I didn’t know

heartbreaking was her case

her actions confess

and put me through the test

I was surprised

that I was caught inside

She turns around with a swift 180, knowing Michael’s already there at her back to receive her ongoing attack…

LYRICS

Now she’s thinking

that I will never know

She’ll keep playing

until I let her go

But I hope in time

that she will finally realize

I’m onto her game

and she’ll get played the same

For his next assault Michael brings on a barrage of moonwalks. (Back, angled, side-to-side)

Standing there watching, it’s as though there’s a side of her that can’t help but admire…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

That girl I

can’t take her

Should have known she was a heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen right through

her she’s a heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen it coming heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen right through her

She’s a heartbreaker

Britney responds with one of her sure-fire collections of ammo –

Low to the ground, she slowly and sensually rises (an array of hotties at her back mirroring her every move) and goes into a snake-like seductive slither, shedding her humble outfit for a much more skimpier one underneath.

LYRICS

I never thought that I would

stop dreamin’ about you

Stop being without you

But everyone told me so

To stop caring about you

and start being without you

She reaches her hand out, getting closer and closer to caressing the side of Michael’s face…

LYRICS

But I’ll find a way to go

start doin’ without you

Stop talkin’ about you

and what will she say?

She will say

I was the man that got away

As if popping up right on time a rapper slips up in between them and starts FLOWING LINES, the two adversaries staring each other down during this brief intermission.

LYRICS

Rap

Wasting no time and showing no signs of slowing down Michael gets back to work as his challenger stands there before him, (her army of hotties frozen as if waiting for their next command) a little worry creeping up on her face…

Somehow sensing her weakness, when he passes it back to her this time he does so with a look of knowing on his face.

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

That girl I

can’t take her

Should have known she was a heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen right through

her she’s a heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen it coming heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen right through her

She’s a heartbreaker

She goes into his choreographed routine of the CHORUS, or at least tries to as fatigue and unequaled skill begin to show, her army of seductresses mirroring only what she’s giving them…

LYRICS

That girl I

can’t take her

Should have known she was a heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen right through

her she’s a heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen it coming heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen right through her

She’s a heartbreaker

Like a machine losing power Britney starts to shut down, every move becoming weaker until there are no more and she stands there teetering on the edge of falling down…

LYRICS

That girl I

can’t take her

Should have known she was a heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen right through

her she’s a heartbreaker

… And like a toy soldier she falls back, sending her army of hotties falling back as well in domino effect.

As we push in on her to a close-up she just lies there, her head jerking like a malfunctioning robot.

Continuing to push in, we enter her pupil…

And are flooded with a barrage of images of Michael’s past dancing (videos, performances, etc.)

Slowly falling back from those countless images the back of a little girl staring at them is brought into frame.

We fall back out of the pupil and keep falling back until we have Michael in frame standing right above her, still dancing like a nonstop machine. (Through BROKEN-UP CHORUS)

LYRICS

(Michael Singing)

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen it coming heartbreaker

That girl I can’t take her

Should have seen right through her

She’s a heartbreaker

We start to crane up while bringing camera around 180° as Michael heads on out and down the middle of the abandoned street, dancing every step of the way.
