EXPLAIN THE HANDCUFFS – A TIME TRAVEL ADVENTURE – SCI-FI COMEDY SCRIPTS
Frank and Maude’s love life has dwindled to a trickle over the past year, ever since Frank took to the basement in his quest to invent the first ever working time machine. In fact, Maude only sees him occasionally when he pops up for arbitrary items such as sunflower oil and the washing machine. In desperation, Maude has taken to redecorating their entire house and making herself even more gorgeous in order to catch his eye.
But what Maude doesn’t know is that Frank is actually on the verge of a major breakthrough that will catapult them three hundred years into the future….
