Piper is sitting on the steps in the school.
PIPER: Hey guys, hey guys! Sorry for...the way I ended last week's video, it was very grim, but it's just been a very crazy and intense past few weeks here in Erinsborough. Getting in to this video, I've been writing a short film. Brace yourselves, the idea is a little bit wacky. It's...it's a bit out there...so I just wanted to run it past you guys, and get your opinion. To get your feedback. Bear with me. The title of the film is, "Once a Cheater Always A Cheater"
Caption: PIPE UP (with a school bell)
PIPER: Act One. Introducing the main character. He's a jovial kind of fella...happy wife, happy life. Everything's going really well...BOOM! His dead wife comes back from the dead!
She holds up two fingers.
PIPER: Act Two. Now, she's not a ghost or a zombie or anything like that, nothing unbelievable or... Basically, her husband accidentally drove her off a cliff on their wedding day. But! She is back from the dead, and she's suffering amnesia. She's not alone, she has a child. Jovial Fella has a new family to provide for and just hands over all of his hard- earned cash, and then boom! Dead Wife and New Kid disappear.
She holds up three fingers.
PIPER: Act Three. So now, Jovial Fella chases Dead Wife and New Kid to London, because New Wife said that it was OK for him to do.
Piper looks into the camera.
PIPER: Following? Jovial Fella thinks that his New Wife is sleeping with the attractive next- door neighbour, so, when Jovial Fella finds Dead Wife, he sleeps with her.
Piper reacts dramatically.
PIPER: Act Four. Pretty sure this is supposed to fit into three acts! Jovial Fella isn't so jovial anymore because he finds out that Dead Wife is actually an imposter and isn't his wife at all, and never was. He realises he's pretty much ruined his life.
She lifts her eyes to the camera.
PIPER: Anyway...so...pretty much, my point is, the point of my *film* is...cheating. Should you take them back? Is there an allowance? If you're in a situation that is just so messed up. Like my friends...characters. I don't want to get into a blah- blah- blah, but...I have had my fair share of experiences, like, with cheating. Not personally.
She looks into the camera and points.
PIPER: Unless you're Dean Coates. You kissed my best friend! After saying I was the *only* girl for you! You held my hand...sorry, just, being six was a really hard year for me.
She gets back to talking about the present.
PIPER: If that one person who is supposed to be there for you goes and does something like that, I mean, how do you forgive them? *Do* you forgive them? I don't know, I feel like it would always be there. To address the question, I think that there are two types of cheaters. There's the serial kind...steer clear of them. And the second type of cheater, those who just find themselves in the situation and they're unprepared and...I guess they feel like they don't have any other choice. You do, you *always* have a choice. Like, if you have the choice, don't cheat. I think that cheating is a result of something else. You know, like it's a reflection of the relationship and what's going on in the relationship. That's what drives someone to make the mistake.
She looks conflicted.
PIPER: From experience, it's not...always a mistake. Anyway...so that's a little glimpse of my short film. That I'm defintiely writing. And in other news, my mum has a new boyfriend. Weird. Yeah, he came over for lunch the other day and he like "cooked" and was like, hospitable. Very weird. I mean, it's cool though, because it is my best friend's dad. So I'm like living the every teen flick, like after- school special dream. But it's just weird because now my relationship with him has changed. I'm like, "What's up, Xanthe's Dad?" and now I'm like, "What are your intentions with my mother? Hmm? When will she be home? Where are you going this evening?"
She looks at the camera again.
PIPER: That exactly my mum. It's good to see her back out in the field. Dating, slaying... Be safe, Mum, if you're watching this.
PIPER: Just to recap, don't cheat and don't let your parents date anyone else. Alright, that's all for this week, public service announcements over. Selamat tinggal!
