Challenge Completed Can't Post

Forgive my crappy formatting, i am not sure what form one is supposed to use for scripts these days.

The point of this thread is to prove that the solving of Gollum's time riddle as written in the book can in fact work as a film given a tiny amount of effort in the screenwriting department. This was brought up in the Riddles in the Dark thread a matter of weeks ago where it was claimed to have been impossible, to which I replied "challenge accepted". Here is my first attempt and do note that I am in fact a rank amateur (so a professional ought to be able to do better, right?):

(hoarse, nearly inaudible, visibly beginning to panic)
Give me more time, give me more time, give me more time give me more time

GOLLUM reaches the bank and quickly courses towards BILBO with the inevitability of a zombie. CUT back and forth


Thee is a pause, BILBO hyperventilates in fear while GOLLUM glares right into his eyes. GOLLUM gives a huff and sits down next to BILBO

(disappointed, somewhat angry, bored with the game)
Yesss, yesss, my preciousss...time is the ansswer.

GOLLUM pokes at Bilbo's stomach, licking his teeth

It's got to ask uss a quesstion, my preciouss, yes, yess, yesss. Jusst one more question to guess, yes, yess

"Others are inclined to say that any two stories that are built round the same folk-lore motive, or are made up of a generally similar combination of such motives, are "the same stories." Statements of that kind are not true, they are not true in art or literature. It is precisely the colouring, the atmosphere, the unclassifiable individual details of a story, and above all the general purport that informs with life the undissected bones of the plot, that really count." J.R.R. Tolkien
