Sure. Let me ask you a question,
what comes to mind when you hear
Romeo and Juliet?
                                                            
                       WENDY
Not much. I know it's a sad story.
Two people who fall in love, but
they are from two families who
don't like each other.
                                                            
                       WILL
That's right, but if you look at
the main characters, they are also
teenagers who fall in love, and
they can't stand to be apart, so
the feel they need to be united
forever in marriage, then they
decide to die together.
                                                            
                       WENDY
Wow, that's romantic & sad at the
same time. How do I put that into
my acting?
                                                            
                       WILL
You need to put yourself into your
character's mind. Find out what
makes them tick. Do you kinda know
what I mean?
                                                            
                       WENDY
I think so.
                                                            
                       WILL
Well, let me show you what I mean.
                                                            
Will stands up, pauses, then speaks.
                                                            
                       WILL
      (Reading from
       Romeo & Juliet)
But soft, what light through
yonder window breaks? It is the
east, and Juliet is the sun.
Araise fair sun, and kill the

envious moon, who is already sick
and pale with grief that thou, her
maid, art more fair than she.
                                                            
Will sits back down.
                                                            
                       WENDY
Wow, that was great.
                                                            
                       WILL
Thanks. Ok, now it's your turn.
                                                            
                       WENDY
No, I am not ready to be that
good.
                                                            
                       WILL
Come on. I know you can do it.
Please?
                                                            
                       WENDY
Ok, I'll try.
                                                            
Wendy stands up, then starts to read.
                                                            
                       WENDY
      (Reading from
       Romeo & Juliet)
O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou
Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse
thy name, or if thou wilt not, be
but sworn my love, and I'll no
longer be a Capulet.
                                                            
Wendy sits down.
                                                            
                       WILL
Wow! That was great.

No, I really mean it.

when you decided to come with
someone tonight, it kinda upset

                       WILL
      (interupting Wendy)
I know. And I am happy you have a
boyfriend.
                                                            
                       WENDY
He is not my boyfriend.

asked him if you could bring a

What's up?
                                                            
                       RALPH
      (whispering)
How did the talk with Wendy go?
                                                            
                       WILL
Well, she told me that her date
from the party wasn't her
boyfriend. I didn't believe her
and called her a liar.
                                                            
                       RALPH
      (whispering)
Will, you're an idiot.
                                                            
                       WILL
      (whispering)
Why do you say that?
                                                            
                       RALPH
      (whispering)
Because her date wasn't her
boyfriend. He is her cousin Joe.
She brought him because he just
broke up with his girlfriend and
was depressed.
                                                            
                       WILL

Wait up for a second Wendy. I need
to talk with you.
                                                            
                       WENDY

I don't see what you have to talk
with me about. You made yourself
clear.

said. Ralph told me the truth. I
am sorry if I hurt you.

don't speak to each other until I
have had time.

That's ok. Take as much time as
you need. When you are ready, I am

                       RALPH
      (over the phone)
But what?
                                                            
                       WILL
She said that for now, it would be
better if we didn't see each
other, until she has had time.
                                                            
                       RALPH
      (over the phone)
Wow. What are you going to do if
she decides to not be with you?
                                                            
                       WILL
Then I will have to learn to deal
with my mistakes, and try to move
forward.
                                                            

27.

                       RALPH
      (over the phone)
Will you be able to do that?
                                                            
                       WILL
I dont know, but we have to wait
and see.
                                                            
                       RALPH

Very true. Ok, well, I got to go.

Will is watching tv.
The phone rings.
He goes to answer it.

Hello?

Hi Will.

Hi Wendy. How are you?
                                                            
                       WENDY
      (over the phone)
I am good. Just calling to say
that I won't be in school
tomorrow.
                                                            
                       WILL
Everything ok? Are you sick?

No. Just got to stay home and help
my dad with my mom.

You can trust me.

She has cancer, and has been doing
chemotherapy. So she's been sick.

Oh wow. Well, I hope she gets
better, and let her know that I am
praying for her.

Thanks. I will. I got to go now.

Ok. If you need anything, call me.

I thought that there was no real "explaining" involved. You are forgetting that a screenplay is visual story telling, yes dialog is important too, but remember the visuals! Listen how people talk; people interrupt, and people talk more natural! You could do much better if you work on these aspects!
