THE STORY     (Read full script)

Good Luck, Mr. GorskiWhen Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, he said, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” He also said a lot of other things. He was up there for a few hours.

One of the things he said was, “Good luck, Mr Gorski.”

Who was Mr Gorski? The CIA went ballistic: it sounds like a Russian name, what if the first man on the moon was a Commie spy? But Neil Armstrong refused to tell, until 25 years later ...

Mr Gorski was his next-door neighbor when he was a boy. One night, he sneaked into the Gorskis’ back yard to get his baseball. Through the open bedroom window he heard Mrs Gorski, very upset, saying to her husband, “You want oral sex? You’ll get oral sex the day the kid next door walks on the moon!”

It’s not true. But even so, don't you want to know what happened in the Gorskis' house the day the kid next door walked on the moon?

Read the script, it's only ten pages. It's turned into a very sweet love story.
