Scene 4: The backroom of a seedy bar at night. A blowout bachelor party is under way, with a general hubbub of drunken voices and half-empty bottles of vodka and gin strewn on the tables. Several men loudly toast the groom, who is clearly drunk. Dave is among them and raises his glass unsteadily. Suddenly, two women, obviously party strippers, walk through the curtain. The men roar in approval. One of the revelers, Mark, approaches Dave.
Mark: (gesturing wildly) Dude, check it out!
Dave: Yeah man! Right on! (Dave takes a long pull of his whiskey, then stands up and starts dancing with the strippers)
Mark: Hey, where's your phone?
Dave: (Dave points haphazardly at the table while dancing) Over there.
Mark: (looking soused and confused as he hits some buttons on the screen.) Huh, wait. No, yeah, OK, cool!
Mark begins taking pictures of the strippers and the party with Dave's iPhone 4S. The room fills with hoots and hollers as the strippers get them going. We see Dave featured in most of the pictures.
Scene 5: The interior of Dave and Laura's living room that same night. Laura is sitting on the couch with her best friends Katie and Erica. They sip wine as they chat.
Laura: We really do have the cutest baby. She's amazing.
Katie: (gushing) Oh, I know, she's a little butterbean!
Erica: I know!
Laura: You have to see some of the new pictures we took. (Laura reaches for her iPad and Katie moves closer to see the iPad)
Katie: (excitedly) I'd love to!
Erica: (claps happily) Yay!
Laura: (smiles, then opens the photo application on her iPad and browses pictures of Samantha) These new iPhones with iCloud let us share pictures with each other too. Check it out!
Laura: (Laura clicks the Photo Stream button; two sets of images appear) That's odd, those are the pics of Samantha, but what are these?
Laura opens the other set of pics, and we see scenes from the bachelor party, with Dave and the strippers front and center. All three share a look of horror.
Laura: These ... these are pictures from John's bachelor party. Dave is there right now.
Laura drops the iPad and runs out of the room.
Scene 6: Meanwhile, back at the bar, the bachelor party is in full swing. Mark is yelling over the noise of the crowd to Dave.
Mark: What a blast, right?
Dave: (dancing with one of the strippers) Yeah! WOO HOO!
