Mr Pharmacy


INT. PHARMACY IN NIDRI, GREECE - DAY
A small pharmacy with no customers. A clerk sitting behind a tall counter, reading, with only the top of his head showing. Mr Me, wearing sandals, enters and walks over to the counter. Silence. It takes half a minute before the clerk looks up.

MR PHARMACY
Yes, hello.

MR ME
Hello. I've cut my toe, and have got an infection. Do you have anything for that?

Mr Me lifting up his foot, showing his toe to Mr Pharmacy.

MR PHARMACY
What kind of infection?


MR ME
(pointing at his toe)
An infection in the cut here.

MR PHARMACY
(looking uninterested)
And what type of infection?

MR ME
(slightly annoyed)
A bacteria infection I guess.

Mr Pharmacy walks over to a cupboard and takes out a box of pills.

MR PHARMACY
You need these.

MR ME
Pills against the infection?

MR PHARMACY
Yes.

MR ME
Don't you have something I can put directly on the wound, like a cream or something?

MR PHARMACY
So you want cream?

MR ME
Yes, I prefer cream to pills.

Mr Pharmacy once more walks over to the cupboard and takes out a small tube that reads Lamisil.

MR PHARMACY
This one.

MR ME
Do Lamisil work? I thought that was for fungus only?

MR PHARMACY
Yes, it is against fungus.

MR ME
Will it help my infection?

MR PHARMACY
Do you have an infection?

MR ME
(slightly more annoyed)
Yes, my toe has got a cut, the cut is infected, a bacteria infection.

Mr Me once more lifts up his foot, almost to the top of the counter, pointing at the toe for Mr Pharmacy to see. Mr Pharmacy walks over to the cupboard for the third time and takes out a small box that reads Betafusin.

MR PHARMACY
Here is something you can use.

MR ME
(sceptical)
Are you sure?

MR PHARMACY
Of course.

MR ME
Can I see?

Mr Me takes the box and starts reading. The box reads "Antibacterial".

MR ME
OK, looks good.

Mr Me pays, takes the little box and leaves the pharmacy.
