May's "Steal This Script" is devoted to a subject near and dear to our hearts: Yo Mama! Here's a nice restaurant spot for Mother's Day. I'll supply the copy, you supply the client. Deal?

Mother's Day Brunch at Fillin Le Blanque Restaurant

Son: (talking to himself) Flowers and a bowling ball. Nope, did that. A Barcolounger? Too expensive. This Mother's Day thing is tough. Ah what the heck, I'll just call and ask her. (quick phone sequence)
Mom: Hello?
Son: Hi Mom. I was just wondering what you wanted for Mother's Day.
Mom: What a thoughtful boy. Do you remember when you bought me a Dustbuster so it would be easier for me to clean under your bed?

Son: I dunno, Mom...do I have to wear a tie?
Mom: Wear the one I gave you for your birthday.
Son: But that's got ducks all over it...
Anncr: Mother's Day brunch at Fillin Le Blanque. It's what she's always wanted.

If you want to send us your version of this spot and others from this column, we'll include a few of them on future Cassettes. And, if you have a great spec idea for Steal This Script, call me and we'll do fax. Have a great Spring!
