I haven’t bothered you with any crappy spec scripts I’ve written in a while, mostly because I still had hope I could do something with them. Unfortunately I am what feels like a decade behind on any television show and everything I had written was out of date. For the sake of not wanting any of these to go to waste, here are three spec scripts. One is from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and two are from Modern Family. As I said, they are pretty outdated so ignore any of those aspects if you happen to read through them. You can check out other things I have written here: Spec Scripts

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – Mac and Charlie Find a Time Machine

While Dennis and Dee argue of the legitimacy of Dennis’s pants being made for males, Mac and Charlie enter the bar dressed in knight’s armor insisting they have found a time machine. They haven’t so don’t think this is some wacky metaphysical adventures. This takes place in a more realistic universe than the title may suggest. I probably wrote this 2 years ago. Chris where has the time gone?

Modern Family – Party Planning (aka I am terrible at naming things for Modern Family because they have no clever formula)

Claire is suspicious that Haley might be having too much sex (I think, I haven’t read over what I wrote in a really long time). Phil takes care of a coworker’s dog and is mistaken as a racist by the black mailman. Jay contemplates on getting hair transplant surgery. Mitchell and Cameron fight over whose collection gets to go up on their hutch, Mitchell’s wrestling action figures or Cameron’s pig paraphernalia.

Modern Family – Unwanted Guests (aka see above)

Manny’s cousin who he looks up to comes to visit and it makes Jay feel inadequate. Claire has trouble getting a locksmith to leave her home. Phil is mistaken for an escaped convict who looks exactly like him. Haley falls for a grifter. Mitchell and Cameron dress up as soldiers to get a military discount at a hardware store.

So that’s it. Read what you want. I’m sure you’ll be terribly confused if you aren’t familiar enough with the characters.

  1. I love your Modern Family spec script. Will you get an agent and send it out there? That’s what you need – an agent. DO IT!!

  2. Awesome ideas all! I can’t wait to tell people “I knew him before he was famous”!

      Wouldn’t it be a real mindfuck if I revealed I was someone famous like Kim Kardashian and the whole Kim Kardashian character is all an act to try to get myself on SNL? That’s so Andy Kaufman.

    I read the Party Planning one and I really liked it! It seems like you have a real feel for the characters because I could honestly picture them saying everything you wrote. That takes skill bro. I’ve never seen Always Sunny in Philadelphia but I’m sure you nailed that one too. Nice one!

    • Mooselicker says:

      Thanks. I don’t think I could really write another one. I had too many failed attempts plus I would have to watch the show again to get caught up. Baby Lily talks now? I’m so far behind.

  4. I did like the dog-dude. my wife watches that show.
