A DAY IN MY DORM

FADE IN:

INT. IT DOESNT MATTER - NIGHT
                                                            
Lights Up to reveal a Dorm room setting with two beds raised
above the ground. Circular chairs enclose the space and
various art supplies, food remnants and bits of trash litter
the floor. Miscellaneous rock songs play in the background.
                                                            
All Actresses are present: Rachel and Kate sit on the bed
farther from the door; Audrey and Sara occupy the chairs;
Gracie sits on the floor; Danielle on Gracies bed closest to
the door.
                                                            
                       GRACIE
      (Working on a
       large monster
       Project)
Ok seriously how am i supposed to
fit this together?
                                                            
                       RACHEL
Everytime is see that i think you
should just staple it together
                                                            
                       KATE
      (Responding to
       Rachel twisting
       ang turning on
       the bed)

                       RACHEL
AHH so much string. its so long!

                       KATE
Hold on, move your leg.
                                                            
FOOD BEEPS FROM THE MICROWAVE
                                                            
                       GRACIE

                       SARA

                       RACHEL

      (CRAWLS ON THE
       FLOOR ON ALL
       FOURS AND SHOVELS
       FOOD DOWN FACE)
                                                            

2.

                       RACHEL
      (in attempt to
       climb back on the
       bed, stops to
       examine the mess)
Damn Blankets and pillows and
stuff!
I just get on the bed and its all
like swoosh!
                                                            
                       SARA
I totally understand. I wake up
and all of them have fallen in the
dirty laundry basket.
                                                            
ALL LAUGH
                                                            
                       AUDREY
i dont even bother anymore, i tear
them off before i even get in bed.
                                                            
Enter Jordie
                                                            
                       GRACIE
Ignore the mess
                                                            
                       JORDEE

                       JORDEE
      (Jordee sits)
Kate, we have the same headphones
                                                            
                       KATE
we do. except mine are broken.
                                                            
                       JORDEE
Ok. then they arent like my
headphones at all.
                                                            
                       SARA
Gracie, tell him about Steven. ALL
about Steven!
                                                            
                       JORDEE
Did he have a sex dream of
something?
                                                            
                       MAMMA
haha not at all. That would be
easier.
                                                            
                       GRACIE
Well we were mad at him for...
                                                            
                       JORDEE
I would hook him up with someone,
but all the girls i know, are
basically in this room. Once i met
Tory, i was basically unallowed to
talk to anyone else.
                                                            

3.

                       MAMMA
(points to Sara) Taken, (Audrey)
Taken, (Kate) Taken, (to herself)
Taken... that leaves Gracie and
Rachel
                                                            
One by one beginning with Mamma, they all place their
forefinger on their nose to indicate "not me".
                                                            
                       JORDEE
I Would teach him the Wonder Wall
chorus that all the Women love. I
mean um ugly as fu-- and it works
for me. If he learns the Chords
their pants would be dropping.
                                                            
Jordie Exits
                                                            
                       RACHEL
How do people get my name confused
for rebecca?
                                                            
                       AUDREY
My name doesnt Rhyme with
anything.
                                                            
                       RACHEL
...Wadrey
                                                            
                       AUDREY
my name is like orange or purple
                                                            
                       RACHEL
I hate when your phone says
retrieving text, and the suspense
is killing you, but then it just
says Call me.
      (Rachel hops off
       the bed and walks
       to the bathroom)
                                                            
                       RACHEL
      (Returning from
       bathroom)
Our bathroom either smells like
fixatives, or intense hairspray.
                                                            
                       SARA
If its fixatives, we are all going
to die.
                                                            
                       KATE
Rachel move that way, that way.
                                                            
                       AUDREY
go under me
                                                            
                       RACHEL
I cant go that direction
                                                            
                       GRACIE
How did we get into this mess?
                                                            

4.

                       KATE
Go around me to the desk
                                                            
                       RACHEL
Ill just step over this. What is
that?
                                                            
                       GRACIE
I think i just found your flip
flops.
                                                            
                       KATE
Ok we are going to CJ labs, see
you later.
                                                            
Exit Kate and Rachel
                                                            
                       GRACIE
Im debating if-
                                                            
                       AUDREY
The answer is no. Or 42.
                                                            
                       GRACIE
is its mouth too big?
                                                            
                       AUDREY
      ((makes swirling
       gesture).)
maybe you should make it do
      (Audrey Stands and
       exits into the
       bathroom.)
                                                            
Silence between characters with music in the background
                                                            
                       AUDREY
      (Audrey reenters)
Ok so random question, Where is
the craziest place you have done
it?
                                                            
                       MAMMA
A pool with his family having a
party on the outside of the pool.
(blushes)
                                                            
                       GRACIE
How bout the time his super
conservative grandparents were
coming over, and he convinced me
we had enough time. Then they
called repeatedly to say they
didnt know where to park, and he
had to call one of his man-clan
members to bring food and act like
we were just playing video games.
                                                            
Laughter
                                                            
                       GRACIE
Then they said they didnt like me
cause i was wearing a tank top.
                                                            

5.

                       AUDREY
Wow. Oh i had and almost near
death experiance. My stepDad drove
by boyfriends car when we were
making out and i thought i was
going to get caught cause he
stopped the car behind us then
reversed and then kept going.
                                                            
                       MAMMA
I broke the Shower towel rack.
that should be enough said. I
handed it to him cause it was
dark, and he tossed the broken
pieces over the top of the shower
curtain.
                                                            
Enter Kate and Rachel
                                                            
                       GRACIE
We will continue this conversation
later.
                                                            
                       MAMMA
I bet kate can show us up.
                                                            
                       RACHEL
what?
                                                            
                       GRACIE
Good Morning, Welcome to the
conversation.
                                                            
                       GRACIE
yea one time my dad came up when
we were up in my room, and i heard
my dad in his work boots coming up
the stairs and Adam books it into
the closet.
                                                            
LAUGHTER
                                                            
                       GRACIE
Thats like when i came home from
getting my tattoo and my dad
patted me on the back. The syran
wrap crinckeled and i flinched,
and was like "OK good night dad!"
and ran away.
                                                            
                       RACHEL
There is no Juice left. (looks
down at Gracie) Gracie!
                                                            
                       GRACIE
ugh. OK
                                                            
                       JORDEE
      (Enter Jordee)
So i walked up to the bitch and i
was like Numa-Numa- Hey
                                                            

6.

                       AUDREY
That reminds me of my friend who
would say "so i was talking to
whats her tits".
                                                            
                       JORDEE
(picks up brush) What happened to
this brush?
                                                            
                       GRACIE
its Gesso.
                                                            
                       JORDEE
      (Sniffs brush)
Its like cum.
                                                            
                       GRACIE
Does your cum smell like Gesso?
                                                            
                       JORDEE
well when your diet consists of
cheese fries, garlic salt, and A1
sauce, your cum smells pretty
weird. And then wrap it all in
bacon cause that apparently makes
everything fancy. Wrap a steak in
bacon and it becomes Filet man
gone.
                                                            
Jordee exits
                                                            
                       KATE
Okay I'm going to bed, I have a
lot to do tomorrow.
                                                            
                       GRACIE
Aw so early Kate dearest?
                                                            
                       KATE
Well I've done all the homework I
can except the homework that I
need to do.
                                                            
                       GRACIE
      (and everyone)
K night!
                                                            
Kate exits
                                                            
                       RACHEL
Why does my bed always go to
smithereens when Kate comes over?
                                                            
Sara is making image transfers in a book and rubbing away
diligently at the paper.
                                                            
                       SARA
Ugh my fingers are raw from this!
                                                            
                       MAMMA
Let me try!
                                                            

7.

Mamma begins work on a page, then slowly falls asleep on the
bed. Sara slowly re-acquires the book and continues
working.
                                                            
                       SARA
Oh well I just have thirty minutes
more on this.
                                                            
                       GRACIE
I hate this project, everything I
try to fix breaks something else!
                                                            
                       RACHEL
Oh no..
                                                            
                       GRACIE
What? What happened?
                                                            
                       RACHEL
My computer's about to die! Its
plugged in, I don't understand.
                                                            
Rachel leaps from the bed and begins examining the cord.
                                                            
                       GRACIE
Check the plug, you may have blew
the outlet. We have like
thousands of watts between the two
of us.
                                                            
                       SARA
Don't explode anything, or melt a
lamp like Andrew did. I'm going
to bed.
                                                            
Sara gathers her things and gently awakens Mamma.
                                                            
                       MAMMA
      (sleepily)
Thanks Gracie, good luck on your
project! Good night.
                                                            
                       GRACIE
Night y'all.
                                                            
Exit Sara and Mamma. Audrey swiftly follows.
                                                            
Rachel relocates to the chair.
                                                            


FADE OUT.

Perfect pacing. Did a really good job capturing the chaos a dorm room can be.
