Rated: R   Genre: Teen Movies   User Review: 1/2
The story of a kid, with some problems, not quite finished yet, but i needed an idea of how it was so far... not really a teen movie, but it is a movie about a teen, so it fit the best, its more of a black comedy to me...

INT. OUTSIDE - DAY
                                                            
We open on a yellow school bus. We see all sorts of happy
kids smiling and getting on the bus to go to school. We see
lots of shots of beautiful flowers and white-picket fences.
We then go to the bus stop. As all the kids get on the bus,
we see a figure just standing there in a large trench coat,
looking very morose and depressed.
                                                            
                       DRIVER
Hey! You comin’?
                                                            
The boy looks up and stares at the woman for a minute. He
then walks on the bus and takes a seat by himself. A paper
ball is thrown at him. He displays no emotion as all this is
happening. The bus is very loud and many kids are acting
obnoxious. They finally get to school. The trench coat kid
enters the school and begins to walk down the hallway. He
stops and opens his eyes really wide. We do not see what he
is looking at however. He pulls a gun out his trench coat
and walks forward, almost in a trancelike state. We hear a
few gunshots and a lot of screaming. Blood splatters on the
windows. We see two balloons fly up into the sky…
Back to reality
                                                            
 
INT. SCHOOL - DAY
                                                            
                       TEACHER
Hey! KID! You Awake?
                                                            
                       KID
Uh…what? Yeah…sure…
                                                            
The class begins to laugh at the kid
                                                            
                       TEACHER
Quiet! All of you! Now John, solve
this problem for the class.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Mr. Avery, I think I’m sick…
                                                            
                       MR. AVERY
Well, what’s wrong with you?
                                                            

2.

                       JOHN
I’m sick of this class!
                                                            
No one laughs at this terribly unfunny joke
                                                            
                       KID
      (under his breath)
dammit…
                                                            
The bell rings and the kids begin to file out. Three
jock-type kids begin to harass the kid that fell asleep.
                                                            
                       JOCK 1
Hey Faggot! Nice going in class!
Dreaming about your boyfriend?
                                                            
                       JOCK 2
Heh Heh! Good one Dirk! Real good!
                                                            
                       JOCK 3
That shows the prick!
                                                            
The kid keeps walking.
                                                            
                       DIRK
      (to the kid)
Hey! FAGGOT! IM TALKING TO YOU!
Come on guys, we’ll get this
fucker later…
                                                            
They walk away and the kid continues walking to the exit of
the school. We cut to him walking into his house after
school.
                                                            
 
INT. KIDS HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
                       KIDS MOM
Hello son. How was school today?
                                                            
                       KID
It was ok I guess…we didn’t really
do much.
                                                            

3.

                       KIDS MOM
Well, one of these days, I’m sure
something cool will happen in
school.
                                                            
                       KID
You have no idea.
                                                            
Kid enters his room and throws his backpack to the ground.
He puts on some music and begins to stare at the ceiling. We
see his eyes close as he drifts into another dream…
                                                            
 
INT. DARK ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
                       DIRK
      (in dream,
       exaggeratingly
       menacing)
Hey FAGGOT! What the hell is wrong
with you, you fuckin’ dumbass! I
don’t get it? You dress like a
fuckin’ loser and you act like one
to! I just don’t get how I can be
in the same fuckin’ area as you
and still keep my coolness!
                                                            
Dirk punches him in the face and we cut back to reality and
he wakes up from his dream.
                                                            
 
INT. KIDS HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
                       KIDS MOM
      (offscreen)
Honey! Dinner time!
                                                            
The kid walks out of his room and into the dining room where
his father and mother wait.
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
Hello son. How was school today?
                                                            

4.

                       KID
It was ok I guess…we didn’t really
do anything.
                                                            
                       KIDS MOM
That’s great son. Sounds like your
doing a bang up job…pass the
potatoes please?
                                                            
                       KID
Sure dad…
                                                            
The kid finishes dinner and returns to his dark room.
                                                            
 
INT. KIDS ROOM - DAY
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
They’re so fake. They don’t
understand. Nobody understands.
Dirk is such a jerk. But I won’t
let him get to me, I just won’t.
Stand your ground, be tough, he
only wants you to crack. Then only
he wins. Him and his “tough-guy”
friends. All of them are jerks…
                                                            
The kid falls asleep.
                                                            
 
INT. KIDS ROOM, MORNING - DAY
                                                            
He wakes up the next day. His mother yells at him to wake
up, but he doesn’t listen. He just sits up. Starring at the
wall and not making any emotions visible on his face. He
finally gets up, gets dressed and leaves.
                                                            
 
EXT. SCHOOL - DAY
                                                            
He gets to school and an announcement comes over the P.A.
                                                            

5.

                       P.A
THERE WILL BE A MANDITORY
ASSEMBELY FOR THE NEW SEMESTER
RIGHT NOW IN THE AUDITORIUM. BE
THERE!
                                                            
The kid makes way to the auditorium by himself. He takes a
seat amidst a bunch of kids. Those kids immediately get up
and go to other seats, leaving the kid alone. The principal
makes his way up to the podium.
                                                            
 
INT. AUDITORIUM - DAY
                                                            
                       PRINCIPAL
Welcome, students to the new
semester. For all the students new
here at this high school, come up
here please.
                                                            

All the new students file on stage.
                                                            
                       PRINCIPAL
You! (points at the kid) Aren’t
you new here? I’ve never seen you
here before, and you don’t seem to
have made any friends!
                                                            
All the kids laugh at him, and another paper ball hits him
in the back of the head. A kid comes up on stage and
whispers something into the principal’s ear. He looks
shocked.
                                                            
                       PRINCIPAL
Oh my…oops, I’m sorry son, it’s
just I had never seen you here
before, and…
                                                            
The kid makes an “o.k” hand motion to the principal.
                                                            
                       PRINCIPAL
Now, on with the show, will the
new students please introduce
themselves?
                                                            

6.

He goes around…we close in on the kid
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
Friggin’ Jerk! Sure I haven’t been
going here very long, but he
should know my freakin’ name by
now. How could someone be so
inconsiderate- (he cuts off and
his eyes get wide as he looks up)
                                                            
                       PRINCIPAL
And what’s your name?
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Olivia. Olivia Williams.
                                                            
The kids eyes light up and grips the armrests on his chair.
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
Who is this woman? It’s like an
angel stepped into my life here. I
don’t understand. Who is this
enigma, I must find out. No,
stupid, I’m such a failure, I’d
never get her. Dirk’s probably
pining over her right now.
                                                            
After the assembly, everyone is getting their scheduales.
The kid gets his and walks out of the auditorium and Dirk
follows him out and begins to harass him again.
                                                            
 
INT. HALLWAY OF SCHOOL - DAY
                                                            
                       DIRK
Hey FAGGOT! I saw you pining all
over that new piece of tail. Let
me tell you something faggot, SHES
MINE! If you ever think of talking
to her, I’ll stomp a hole through
your ass so far…uh…it’ll be all
far up there and stuff.
                                                            
                       JOCK 2
Yeah…good one Dirk, that sure
showed that faggot.
                                                            

7.

Dirk walks away.
                                                            
                       KID
      (calling)
Hey Dirk.
                                                            
                       DIRK
Are you talking to me faggot!? ARE
YOU TALKING TO ME!?
                                                            
                       KID
Yeah, I am. Come here, you jerk.
                                                            
He walks over to the kid and gets right in his face
                                                            
                       DIRK
Yeah faggot, what the fuck do you
want?
                                                            
The kid gets Dirk in the balls. He kicks him again, and
again, until blood is all over his pants.
                                                            
                       KID
      (while kicking him)
This is what YOU GET! THIS IS WHAT
YOU GET!
                                                            
A flash of white, the kid opens up his eyes and is walking
in the hallways again.
                                                            
                       DIRK
HEY FAGGOT! I’ve been calling you
for 5 fuckin’ minutes you asshole!
Get the hell over here.
                                                            
The kid walks over to him.
                                                            
                       DIRK
Alright faggot, I saw you at the
assemblely, looking at the fine
new piece Olivia. Let me tell you
something, you even think of
getting close to her, I’ll have
you in the ground faster than you
can say…something…
                                                            

8.

                       JOCK 2
Yeah Dirk, showed him good…
                                                            
They walk away. The kid goes to his first class and sits in
the seat.
                                                            
                       TEACHER
Well, I see a lot of familiar
faces here this semester. But do
we have any new students now?
                                                            
Olivia raises her hand, the kid doesn’t notice.
                                                            
                       TEACHER
Oh, you? Well, what’s your name?
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Olivia. Olivia Williams.
                                                            

The kid looks back, and sees Olivia and quickly turns around
in his chair.
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
Stupid! You cant just go “looking”
at her yet! You haven’t even
established yourself yet, she
doesn’t even know who the heck you
are! You’ve got to get to know
her, just wait for the right time.
                                                            
 
INT. LUNCHROOM - DAY
                                                            
Cut to the kid in the lunch room. He sits all alone in the
corner of the table. He sees Olivia walk into the room. She
sees him and walks over to him.
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Excuse me, is anyone sitting here?
                                                            
                       KID
Uh…no
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Well, do you mind if I sit here?
                                                            

9.

                       KID
Well, I guess not.
                                                            
Olivia sits right next to him, the kid looks surprised and
excited at the same time.
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Do you have a girlfriend?
                                                            
                       KID
      (surprised and
       dumbfounded)
Uh…I…Um…I…
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Because if you do, I hope she
doesn’t mind if I do this!
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Because if you do, I hope she
doesn’t mind if I do this!
                                                            
She starts to kiss him. He begins to join in. flash back to
reality.
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Hello? Hello? Anybody home in
there?
                                                            
Olivia is standing on the opposite side of the table.
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Hello?
                                                            
                       KID
Oh…yeah…what…
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Well, I was wondering if you could
tell me were room V108 is? That’s
where my next class is and I’m new
here.
                                                            
                       KID
Oh, yeah, it’s over-
                                                            

10.


One of the cheerleader girls comes over to Olivia.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Oh, your Olivia right? Your really
pretty, what are you doing over
here talking to low-class
riff-raff? Come over to the lunch
table with us. We’re the
cheerleaders. Don’t you want to be
a cheerleader?
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Well, not really…
                                                            
                       AMBER
Of course you do! Now come on and
sit by us, before this kids
disease spreads all over us.
                                                            
Olivia follows her over to the cheerleaders and jocks table,
where Dirk is also seated.
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
Amber Vallens. One of the meanest
girls you can possibly imagine in
a school. Her record goes through
everything from extortion to
threats to vandalism. I hate her.
I hate everyone at that table. But
not Olivia. She’ll shine through
it all. She’ll make it. She’s
stronger than those jerks at that
table. She is. I just know it.
                                                            
                       DIRK
      (pointing at the
       kid from his
       table)
Hey! That faggots looking at us
again!
                                                            
                       JOCK 3
Let’s get him!
                                                            
Dirk and the jocks walk over to the kid.
                                                            

11.

                       DIRK
Alright kid, I’ve had enough of
you for a lifetime. How about you
meet me at the flagpole after
school. We’ll settle this thing
once and for all.
                                                            
                       KID
Why do we have to fight Dirk?
There’s really no reason-
                                                            
                       DIRK
WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHY DO WE HAVE TO
FIGHT!? YOU’RE A MAN ARENT YOU!?
MEN FIGHT! YOU A LITTLE FERRIE
BOY!? HUH!?
                                                            
Amber comes over to Dirk
                                                            
                       AMBER
Come on Dirk, this piece of human
trash isn’t worth the effort it is
to beat him to a pulp.
                                                            
                       DIRK
      (intesne and
       raving mad)
Amber, get THE HELL AWAY FROM ME!
(He punches her in the mouth).
Now, do I make myself clear? After
school, the flagpole.
                                                            
                       KID
I don’t want to fight you Dirk.
                                                            
                       DIRK
      (getting more and
       more in his face)
Oh, you don’t want to fight.
(turns to other guys) This kid
doesn’t want to fight fellas! Well
what do you know! This kid doesn’t
want to fight.
                                                            

12.

Dirk punches the kid in the face, blood begins to spew out
of his nose.
                                                            
                       DRIVER
YOU WANNA FIGHT NOW, FAGGOT!?
                                                            
                       KID
I still don’t want to fight you
Dirk.
                                                            
A teacher comes over.
                                                            
                       TEACHER
What’s going on over here? Dirk?!
Did you hit this kid?
                                                            
                       DIRK
No, sir! I was just taking my good
friend over here to the bathroom
so that he could wash up his
nosebleed.
                                                            
                       TEACHER
Oh, well carry on then.
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
Just play along with their little
game, it will all be over soon
enough.
                                                            
Dirk takes the kid in the bathroom.
                                                            
 
INT. BATHROOM - DAY
                                                            
                       DIRK
      (to the jocks)
Get me a goddamn balloon. NOW!
                                                            
One of the jocks runs out of the bathroom.
                                                            
                       DIRK
Now you’re going to see how a real
man fights, not a faggot like you.
                                                            

13.

The kid comes back with a balloon. Dirk puts his mouth on
the end of it and sucks the helium out of it. His voice
becomes eerily high.
                                                            
                       DIRK
      (high voice)
Now, you little fuck, prepare to
get you ass beaten.
                                                            
He proceeds to beat the hell out of him. He punches him in
the face, rams his head into the walls and kicks him in the
stomach. He giggles all the while, with his high voice, this
makes it both comic and disturbing.
                                                            
                       DIRK
      (high voice has
       worn away)
All right, lets go, I think this
kid has learned his goddamn
lesson. LETS GO!
                                                            
The kid sits there in a stall, bloody and bruised. Just
sitting, looking up at the ceiling.
                                                            
 
INT. KIDS HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Cut to: The kids home. He walks in the door, with bruises
all over his face.
                                                            
                       KIDS MOM
Hello son, how was school today?
                                                            
                       KID
It was ok.
                                                            
                       KIDS MOM
That’s good. Did you learn
anything?
                                                            
                       KID
Yeah, I learned what helium does
to the human body.
                                                            

14.

                       KIDS MOM
That’s great son, sounds like a
complicated math problem.
                                                            
                       KID
Yeah…math problem.
                                                            
Kids dad enters, his face buried in his newspaper
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
Hello son, how was school today?
                                                            
                       KID
It was ok, I guess.
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
That’s great son.
                                                            
Kid leaves to his room
                                                            
                       KIDS MOM
      (to father)
You know, we have a great kid
there.
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
      (to mother)
Your darn right honey, your darn
right.
                                                            
 
INT. KIDS ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Instant cut to the kid stabbing a picture of Dirk on his
wall.
                                                            

15.

                       KID (V.O)
Why does he have to act that way?
Why do they all have to act that
way. I thought she might have
understood it. But she didn’t. Not
yet anyway. Maybe I can liberate
her from their evil. Yeah, that’s
it, liberate her. But how. It’s to
risky to fight them. I’ll have to
do it in secret. That’s it,
secret.
                                                            
 
INT. LUNCHROOM, NEXT DAY - DAY
                                                            
Cut to the kid at school. Starring mindlessly at Olivia. The
bell rings. It is lunch time. The kid walks into the
lunchroom, holding only a water. We see a table of strange
looking kids wave him over to their table. He obliges and
goes to sit down.
                                                            
                       KID
Hello.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
Greetings. Lawrence is the name.
We’ve been watching you over
across the lunchroom.
                                                            
                       KID
Really? Why?
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
We think your prime material for
our group.
                                                            
                       KID
What do you mean “prime material”?
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
We think that you should be part
of our little group here, that’s
all. We’ve also seen you look at
that new girl.
                                                            

16.

                       KID
Well…(reluctantly)all right I
guess.
                                                            
                       KID
Thanks, I guess.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
Well that’s pretty much the table.
Welcome.
                                                            
                       KID
Oh yeah, John, that’s right, we
have English together.
                                                            
                       JOHN
My name is John…I think you might
be in one of my classes perhaps,
I’m the one with all the funny
jokes. You know.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
EXCELLCIOR! Welcome to the table.
                                                            
                       KID
Thanks, I guess.
                                                            
 
INT. HALLWAY AFTER LUNCH - DAY
                                                            
The kids walk out of the lunchroom. The kid is tripped and
falls to the ground. Everyone steps over him as if nothing
had happened.
                                                            
                       KID IN HALL
What the heck is lying all over
the ground?
                                                            
                       KID IN HALL 2
I don’t know, but they better move
it.
                                                            
The kid gets up, with shoeprints all over his shirt.
                                                            

17.

                       LAWRENCE
Are you alright? That was quite a
spill.
                                                            
                       KID
Yeah, I’m fine…Lets keep going.
                                                            
The kids pass one of the jocks and Amber.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
Look at that fine piece right
there! I’d like to tap that…
                                                            
He winks at Amber. The jock sees this and comes over to
Lawrence.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Hey! YOU! You think you can just
go around winking at peoples women
like that? HUH!? You think you
CAN!? WELL GUESS WHAT!?! YOU
CANT!?!
                                                            
He punches Lawrence in the face. Then proceeds to kick him
repeatedly.
                                                            
                       AMBER
PAUL! STOP IT! Don’t hurt the poor
kid!
                                                            
                       PAUL
Amber, your just a girl, you
wouldn’t understand these issues.
Just go back and cheer me on like
a normal girl would.
                                                            
Amber, looking defeated, walks away, the kid follows her
                                                            
                       KID
Hey! You shouldn’t let him push
you around like that.
                                                            
                       AMBER
You know what, your right! I wish
someone would take care of him for
me…
                                                            

18.

Kid looks like he gets an idea. He runs up behind Paul and
rams his head into the wall with extreme force. He screams
and cries on the floor while Amber begins to hug the kid.
                                                            
                       AMBER
My god! I love you! You’ve saved
me from his evil! Thank god you’ve
liberated me from them!
                                                            
Flash of white to reality
                                                            
                       KID
Hey! Why do you let him treat you
that way!
                                                            
                       AMBER
WHAT ARE YOU DOING!? I don’t need
help from your kind.
                                                            
She walks away, the kid stands there, sad, while Paul is
still kicking the crap out of Lawrence.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Now, if I EVER catch you getting a
glimpse of Amber again, I’ll kill
you. Let’s go Amber.
                                                            
                       AMBER
But Paul, I want to go talk to
some of my friends.
                                                            
                       PAUL
AMBER! When I say we go, WE go!
Not you and your little bitch
friends. Now LETS GO, we gots us
some things to do…
                                                            
Amber follows Paul The kid goes over to Lawrence.
                                                            
                       KID
Lawrence, are you all right?
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
‘Tis a flesh wound my friend.
(coughs, begins to vomit) Lets go.
                                                            

19.

                       KID
Are you sure you’re alright,
Lawrence?
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
I SAID I WAS ALRIGHT! (Begins to
vomit again)
                                                            
                       KID
That’s it, we’re taking you to the
nurses office. Come on John, help
me pick him up.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah, sure, come on buddy boy, get
up.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
I’m serious, I’m fine, I swear,
I’ve never felt better in my whole
life. (coughs up a massive amount
of bloods, eyes close)
                                                            
                       KID
Come on John, this kid needs help.
                                                            
 
INT. NURSE'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
                       NURSE
JESUS CHRIST! What happened to
you?
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
      (staggered
       breathing, blood
       spewing out of
       mouth)
Fell…down…stairs…ughh………
                                                            
                       NURSE
Wow, you really fell down a lot of
stairs! Well, then lets get you
bandaged up!
                                                            
Nurse puts one bandage across Lawrence’s arm
                                                            

20.

                       NURSE
There! All better! Now run along,
there’s learning afoot!
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
Thank god that’s over.
                                                            
 
INT. OUTSIDE THE NURSES OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
                       KID
Why did you tell them that you
fell down the stairs? Why didn’t
you say it was Paul?
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
What are you talking about? Lets
go…(still coughing up blood)
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
Great. They’ve instilled fear into
them. Those jerks. I don’t get it.
It’s so stupid. All these people
in this school know exactly who it
is, but they go through the
motions as if it were all an
accident. No one ever gets
expelled. One day I’ll take ‘em
down, yeah, and then I’ll punch
out god. It’ll never work. Their
sick routine of pain and torture
will just keep going until someone
gets killed. Until that day…
                                                            
 
EXT. OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL - DAY
                                                            
outside of school, the end of the day, The Kid is walking
home, suddenly, a football strikes his head and he falls to
the ground
                                                            

21.

                       DIRK
      (from affar)
That’s right faggot! Get the FUCK
outta here. I seen you lookin’ at
that fine young pussy Olivia!
She’s mine faggot, she’s mine.
                                                            
His cronies begin to laugh
                                                            
The Kid gets up and continues walking without failure, until
a car stops alongside of him
                                                            
                       GIRL
Hey kid, you want a ride?
                                                            
The Kid looks up, its Olivia in the car
                                                            
                       KID
      (shyly)
Oh, hey…what’s up…
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Nothing…well, do you want a ride
or not?
                                                            
                       KID
Oh, sure…
                                                            
He gets in the car
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Where do you live?
                                                            
                       KID
Oh, just turn right at this
subdivision, my house is on a side
street named Oakdream.
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Oakdream? That’s a pretty name for
a street.
                                                            
                       KID
I guess…
                                                            
a few awkward moments of silence
                                                            

22.

                       OLIVIA
You know, I see those kids picking
on you. Dirk and the team I mean.
I don’t think they really mean any
harm to you, they’re just having a
little bit of fun.
                                                            
                       KID
      (meekly)
Yeah…that’s…what
I…thought…to…..uhh…here’s my
house…thanks for the ride…
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Yeah, anytime…
                                                            
He gets out of the car, then stands on his porch until he
sees her drive away. He stares off into the distance
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
Was that a dream? A reality? I
can’t even tell between the two
anymore. I can’t even begin to
believe what she told me. A little
bit of fun? A LITTLE BIT OF FUN!?
She really has danced with the
devil. I don’t understand it. How
come every time I see a girl, Dirk
comes along and sweeps her away,
it happened with Amber, it
happened with everyone. I just
can’t believe the nerve of that
guy. One of these days I’ll get
even with that guy…one of these
days.
                                                            
the kid proceeds to walk into the house, with a defeated
expression on his face, once he walks in, the father is
sitting with the mother, reading a newspaper
                                                            
 
INT. KIDS HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
Hello son, how was-
                                                            

23.

                       KID
      (cutting him off)
It was great dad, fantastic.
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
Great. Now you better go get on
that homework of yours!
                                                            
                       KID
Dad, I don’t have any homework
today…
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
Sounds like a challenging math
problem! Better get to work!
                                                            
                       KID
Ok dad, I’ll get on it.
                                                            
The kid goes to the basement of his house, sits in a chair
and stares at the wall
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
Nobody pays attention to me around
here. It’s like I’m some kind of
invisible wall that people just
walk through and step all over.
It’s all over for me. There’s no
way to play by the rules anymore,
no way to play but my way. (pause)
What am I saying? I’d never do
anything to break the rules, all I
do is think about it. I’m just a
burnt out chariacature of myself.
This is insanity.
                                                            
                       KIDS MOM
      (offscreen)
Honey! Dinner is ready!
                                                            
 
INT. KIDS HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
later that night, the kid goes to the computer in his house,
and logs onto AIM, we see his screen name, which is

24.

CitizenToxie1920. He logs on and we see that he has few
friends on aim. He just sits there, waiting for someone to
talk to him, instead of actually talking to someone and
starting a conversation
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
What is this AIM? I don’t
understand it. Have we become such
motionless, soulless beings, where
we have to have conversations over
a cold, lifeless computer screen.
It makes no sense to me, but yet,
here I am, a walking contradiction
of a man. Why am I alone in this
world. It seems that sometimes the
most idiotic, ignorant people hold
all the power in this society.
That’s why high school sucks, ands
that’s why I have to-wait, what’s
this? A message?
                                                            
We see an AIM window light up on the computer monitor, he
begins talking to it
                                                            
                       KID
      (on screen typing)
Hey
                                                            
                       WINDOW 2
      (we can see
       fingers typing)
Hey baby, what’s up, it’s Olivia.
                                                            
                       KID
Hey Olivia, what’s up?
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
nm, ive been thinking about u.
                                                            
                       KID
Really?
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
yea, really, I think about you all
the time, I think we should get
2gether sometime.
                                                            

25.

                       KID
But, I thought you were going to
be going out with Dirk?
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
He doesn’t no about it, he still
think I luv him, but I don’t. lol
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
I never really understood the
whole aim “lingo” thing. This just
goes back to laziness, I mean,
would it kill people to type
“that’s funny” or even “laugh out
loud”. I know I’m not funny, so
don’t patronize me. (back to
typing) I think about you to
sometimes…
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Really?! That’s gr8! You wanna
hang out sometime? Actually,
connect with me for the sound
feature, I’ve got something I want
to tell you for real.
                                                            
the kid does it, the camera cuts back to the hands that were
typing, it pans up and we see Dirk and his buddies, sitting
there typing, and Dirk huffing on another one of his
balloons
                                                            
                       DIRK
      (through
       microphone on the
       kids side)
FUCKING KID! WHO THE FUCK DO YOU
THINK YOU ARE YOU LITTLE SHIT! I
KNEW YOU WERE THINKING ABOUT
STEALING MY GIRL! I FUCKING KNEW
IT! YOUR REALLY GOING TO GET IT
TOMMOROW, AND IM GOING TO TELL
OLIVIA EVERYTHING YOU SAID ABOUT
HER…EVERYTHING! YOU FUCKING
ASSHOLE, YOUR GOING TO GET A LOVE
LETTER, YOU KNOW WHAT A LOVE
LETTER IS FROM ME?! DO YOU?! IT’S
            (MORE)

26.

                       DIRK (cont'd)
A FUCKING PUNCH RIGHT TO THE
FUCKING GUT! NOBODY GETS UP FROM
ONE OF MY LOVE LETTERS, NOBODY!
YOUR GOING TO FUCKING GET IT,
WATCH OUT YOU FUCKER!
                                                            
he signs off, so does the kid
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
One of your friends from school,
son?
                                                            
                       KID
Yeah, dad, one of the best.
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
Fantastic, glad to see you making
something of yourself.
                                                            
the kid goes to his room, he sits on his bed, lays back and
falls asleep, he drifts into a dream, there is a flash of
white light
                                                            
 
INT. DREAM SEQUENCE - DAY
                                                            
the kid is at school, he sees Olivia from behind, he walks
over to her, but then sees Olivia is making out with
someone. He goes over to her, thinking she is making out
with Dirk, to try to stop her, he taps her on the shoulder,
and it turns out to be him, making out with Olivia
                                                            
                       DREAM KID
What the fuck are you doing here?
Faggot.
                                                            
he proceeds to make out with Olivia some more
                                                            
 
INT. KIDS ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Back to reality
                                                            
the kid wakes up with a jolt and he face is dripping with
sweat, he looks around his room, everything is dark, all we

27.

can see is his face which has a small beam of light coming
off of it from the window, he falls back down to go back to
sleep
                                                            
 
INT. STREET OUTSIDE KIDS HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
The Kid walks out of his house with his backpack,
presumabely going to school. He starts to walk to the bus
stop down his street.
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
What did that dream mean? I mean,
dreams are just electric impulses
sent in through the brain to
create pictures, but nobody really
knows what those pictures mean and
why we pick those specific
pictures. Why did i pick those
pictures? It doesnt make sense.
Why was I making out with Olivia?
Was it a premonition of the
future? But then again, why was i
an jerk like Dirk? I dont
understand any of this. Oh well,
better get to school. Try to
forget. Try to forget.
                                                            
He gets on the bus, kids begin to throw things at him. Like
paper balls, etc. He acts like nothing ever happened and gos
on with the ride to school.
                                                            
 
INT. SCHOOL - DAY
                                                            
the kid walks around the halls, the p.a clicks on and an
announcement is read
                                                            
                       P.A
ATTENTION, EVERYONE! HOMECOMING IS
RAPIDLY APROACHING! FIND A DATE,
OR FOREVER BE A LOSER! JUST
KIDDING, OR ARE WE? YOU'LL NEVER
KNOW UNLESS YOU GO TO HOMECOMING!
THIS SATURDAY!
                                                            

28.

                       KID (V.O)
Homecoming? Eh, just another
excuse for girls to go and dress
like sluts and guys to go and act
like complete assholes all the
time. I suppose if i had a date I
would go, especially if it was
Olivia. Damn, that would be fine.
Oh well, maybe i'll hang out with
the guys that night.
                                                            
He sees Lawrence and John standing in the halls, waving him
over to talk to them. He then sees Olivia, she is looking
away from him. He begins to walk over to Olivia, not
noticing John and Lawrence.
                                                            
                       KID
Hi, uhh...Olivia, i was, uhh,
wondering, if, uhh..you, would
like...to...umm...
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Oh, its you. What do you want?
                                                            
                       KID
Well, i was wondering if, well,
you would like to, umm...
                                                            
the bell rings
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Look, i'll talk to you later, i
have to get to class now, ok?
                                                            
                       KID
Yeah, sure, i'll do that.
                                                            
He walks over to John and Lawrence.
                                                            
                       JOHN
What was that all about man, we
were waving you over, and you go
talk to a chick?! Whats up with
that?
                                                            
The Kid violently grabs John by his collar.
                                                            

29.

                       KID
Look, John, this girl aint just a
"chick" shes the girl i love, and
if you call her a chick again,
i'll cut you.
                                                            
Lawrence takes the kid aside.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
What the hell was that all about
man? All he made was a little
innocent comment and you went off
on him like that? We're all
supposed to be friends here man,
and if you cant abide by the rules
of the group, which i'm sure
include that no collars are to be
violently grabbed, then i'm
affraid that you wont be apart of
the group anymore.
                                                            
                       KID
But...he...he called Olivia a
"chick", i hate that word, its
demeaning. It takes women down a
peg, and women as beautiful as
this should not be taken down.
They should be put on a pedistol
by someone special. Somebody like
me, not somebody like that asshole
Dirk. One day i'll get him good,
me and Olivia, we'll take him
down.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
What are you talking about?
                                                            
                       KID
Im talking about a kill. Maybe a
physicall kill, maybe not, but a
kill nonetheless. Maybe a kill to
his psyche, we're going to do it,
Lawrence, me and you. Buddies.
                                                            

30.

                       LAWRENCE
Hey man, i dont think your
thinkning strait. On top of that,
i've never heard you swear
either...
                                                            
                       KID
Your right, i need to stop.
                                                            
Walks over to John.
                                                            
                       KID
Sorry i grabbed you man.
Seriously, i was out of line.
                                                            
                       JOHN
It's okay man, no problem, lets
get to class.
                                                            
                       KID
I'll see you guys at lunch.
                                                            
 
INT. LUNCH ROOM - DAY
                                                            
The Kid walks into the lunchroom and sits down at the table
with John and Lawrence.
                                                            
                       KID
Hey guys, I'm really sorry about
the way i acted this morning. I
was way out of line.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
It's okay man, we understand.
                                                            
                       KID
No, i dont think you do, let me
explain. I've been under a lot of
stress lately. Since homecoming is
coming up, i thought it would be
nice if i asked Olivia to go with
me. Well, its been hard to get the
nerve up to ask her. I think i can
do it though.
                                                            

31.

                       JOHN
Well, here she comes now, why not
now?
                                                            
                       KID
Alright, i will.
                                                            
He walks over to Olivia, who is in the lunch line.
                                                            
                       KID
Um...hi, Olivia.
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Oh, hi. Whats happening? I saw you
earlier, but we didnt get a chance
to really talk.
                                                            
                       KID
yeah, umm...anyways, homecoming is
coming up you know, and i was,
uhh...wondering, if you would,
uhh...accompany me...and,
uh....you know, go to the dance
with me?
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Sure, I'll go to the homecoming
dance with you! Pick me up at 8,
at my house, and we'll go.
                                                            
                       KID
      (surprised)
what...REALLY!? Well, i'll be
there then, at 7-
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
8
                                                            
                       KID
Right, right, 8, i'll be there. I
wont be late!
                                                            
The Kid walks back to the table, and Olivia walks to the
table where Dirk is seated.
                                                            

32.

                       DIRK
      (to olivia)
What the fuck was that all about?
Why were you talking to that
little peice of shit?
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Oh, he just asked me to go to
Homecoming with him.
                                                            
                       DIRK
WHAT?! WHATS THAT LITTLE SHIT
DOING ASKING YOU TO GO TO
HOMECOMING WITH HIM?! HE SHOULD BE
ASKING HIS OWN KIND TO GO TO THE
DANCE WITH HIM! NOT THE BEATUIFUL
PEOPLE, THEY ARE RESERVED FOR THE
FOOTBALL TEAM ONLY. I THOUGHT WE
WERE GOING TO THE DANCE TOGETHER!?
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
DIRK! Settle down. It's ok. We're
still going out. But I feel really
bad for this kid. He seems like a
nice kid and all, but he doesnt
seem to have many friends. I just
think that if i go to Homecoming
with him, it will at least boost
his self-confidence, cant you see
what I'm saying.
                                                            
                       DIRK
fine, you know what, fine, take
your little faggot to homecoming
with you, take him. I dont even
give a fuck. Go on, have fun with
your little outcast.
                                                            
                       OLIVIA
Dirk! It's not like that. I just
feel like if i take him, i can
boost his confidence. We can make
out right after, i promise.
                                                            

33.

                       DIRK
Fine, as long as we can make out.
Take the little fuckbag.
                                                            
Cut to the table where John, Lawrence, and the Kid are
sitting.
                                                            
                       JOHN
So, she said yes?
                                                            
                       KID
Yeah, she said yes, she seemed
generally excited to be going with
me to.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
Thats great man, looks like your
lucks turning around.
                                                            
                       KID
Yeah, it does look like that
doesnt it.
                                                            
                       JOHN
What are you going to do about
Dirk? I thought he would be going
with Olivia.
                                                            
                       KID
Screw Dirk, hes a jerk anyway. I
finally beat him. Now that that
evil has been cleaned off of the
earth, we need to work on another.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
Who is that?
                                                            
 
INT. OUTSIDE SCHOOL - DAY
                                                            
we see a man in dark sunglasses and a trenchcoat. He is a
drugdealer named JIMMY and he sells drugs to kids once
school gets out. No one wants to persecute him because he
has ties to the mob. He gets his first customer of the day.
                                                            

34.

                       BOY
Hey man, what you got?
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Man, i got crack, smack, junk,
heroin, coke, vicks vapor rub,
joints, needles, anything you want
man. You got the will, and the
money, and i can take you higher
than you can imagine.
                                                            
                       BOY
Just give me a couple of joints
man.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
How many would a couple be?
                                                            
                       BOY
MAN! Just give me 4 of those bad
boys. I got a party to get to!
                                                            
                       JIMMY
That'll be....35 bucks.
                                                            
                       BOY
35 BUCKS?! What the hell is that
about man? Last time i bought 4 it
was only 25 bucks!
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Well inflations a bitch, kid. PAY
UP!
                                                            
                       BOY
Fine, here.
                                                            
He gives him the money, and walks away.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Pleasure doing business with you!
                                                            
Dirk walks up to Jimmy.
                                                            

35.

                       JIMMY
Oh, great, the freak again. What
the hell do you want now?
                                                            
                       DIRK
Shut the fuck up, Jimmy! Give me
my new supply of helium.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Won't be in 'till tommorow, Dirk,
sorry.
                                                            
                       DIRK
TOMMOROW, WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU
MEAN, TOMMOROW?! I NEED IT NOW!
                                                            
He grabs Jimmy by the collar and lifts him up.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Woah, woah, woah, there, Bruce
Banner, look, it'll be here
tommorow, just settle down before
you do something you'd surely
regret.
                                                            
He puts him down and backs away.
                                                            
                       DIRK
ALLRIGHT YOU FUCK! I'LL BE BACK
TOMMOROW! YOU BETTER HAVE IT THEN!
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Alright, alright, it'll be here
tommorow, dont worry your little
steroid filled head about it.
                                                            
Dirk exits, but the kid enters.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Hey, man, never seen you around
here, you looking to get high? I
got anything you need right here
man, right here.
                                                            
                       KID
Hey man, does it ever bother you?
                                                            

36.

                       JIMMY
Bother me? What the fuck are you
talking about?
                                                            
                       KID
Your job, does it ever bother you?
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Hey man, I got a job to do like
everyone else! Somebody has to do
it!
                                                            
                       KID
Why do you have to do it to the
kids? Why do you have to corrupt
these young minds with your mind
altering substances? Why!?
                                                            
Jimmy grabs the kid by the collar and brings him very close
to him.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Look you little shit! I have a job
to do, and if i dont do it, im
dead! It's a dog eat dog world out
there. It's me or the kids, and
you know what, i think i'm going
to pick me. If these little
bastards want to buy drugs, you
know who they come to? They come
to me! They come to me because
i've got the hookups, i've got
what they want. By now i know
their weaknesses, i know they need
what i've got, and to live i have
to exploit that need. So get out
of my fucking face before i stomp
your goofy ass.
                                                            
Jimmy savagely throws him to the ground
                                                            
                       KID
Fine you jerk off. But you know
what, we'll be back! We'll fight
your corupt schemes and your evil
substances. We'll fight!
                                                            

37.

Lawrence pulls the kid away.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
Look man, you need to cool off for
a bit. Why dont you head on home
and i'll deal with Jimmy for now.
                                                            
                       KID
Well, alright...
      (points at Jimmy)
FIGHT THE CORPORATE EVIL!
                                                            
He walks off, as he walks off, Lawerence pulls out his
wallet and heads towards Jimmy.
                                                            
 
INT. KIDS HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
The kid walks into his house, smiling for once
                                                            
                       KIDS MOM
Hello son! Why so happy today?
                                                            
                       KID
I..I got a date for homecoming..
                                                            
                       KIDS MOM
      (shocked)
WHAT!? HONEY! COME IN QUICK! OUR
SON, HAS A DATE!
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
Well, thats fantastic, and here i
thought you'd never ammount to
anything son. Turns out i was
wrong, so far anyways.
                                                            
                       KID
Wait, so you guys care about what
i do now?
                                                            
                       KIDS MOM
      (with dad)
WEll, now that your popular, i
guess we'll have to!
                                                            

38.

The kid's frown returns
                                                            
                       KID
But...I'm still not really
popular...
                                                            
                       KIDS DAD
Well, that sounds like a tough
geometary problem son, but i
really want to hear more about
this date!
                                                            
The kid just walks away to his room.
                                                            
                       KID (V.O)
JESUS CHRIST! They only want to
hear what they want to hear. Screw
them, they dont understand how
important this is to me. I've
waited my whole life for an
opportunity like this, and now its
here...jesus, i cant wait until
this friday. It could be the
defining moment of my life. I just
hope Dirk isnt around to screw it
up (pause) but...if i took care of
Dirk, he wouldnt be around to
screw it up. (pause) wait, what am
i thinking, i could never do that
to a person, even if it is that
sleazebag Dirk...but if Lawrence
did it for me, that would be
awesome....really awesome, i
should give him a ring right
now....
                                                            
the kid picks up the phone and dials a number
                                                            
                       KID
      (into phone)
Lawrence? It's me, i've got a
proposition for you.
                                                            
 

39.

INT. FRIDAY, THE LUNCHROOM - DAY
                                                            
The Kid, Lawrence and John are sitting at the table,
discussing the night.
                                                            
                       KID
So, is the plan set?
                                                            
Lawrence and John look at each other, and look
dissalusioned.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
I just think that this is kind of
a bad idea, i mean, what your
talking about could be pretty
dangerous.
                                                            
                       KID
Trust me, my plan is full-proof.
It can't fail. I gave you all the
instructions! Just follow them
very carefully.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
I guess i just don't fully
understand why we're doing it.
                                                            
                       KID
YOUR doing it so that that
rat-bastard doesnt screw things up
with me and Olivia.
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
I dont know about this man, it
just seems so wrong...
                                                            
                       KID
Look man, just do this one thing
for me. I dont ask you for much, i
pulled your ass out of that fight
with Paul, you owe me this.
                                                            
Lawrence and John look over to each other, looking hesitant,
but then turn back to the kid
                                                            

40.

                       LAWRENCE
Alright, i guess we'll do it, but
you promise we wont get caught or
nothin'?
                                                            
                       KID
You have my solemn word that you
will return unharmed.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Well, it sounds ok, i guess....
                                                            
                       KID
So, we have a deal then?
                                                            
                       LAWRENCE
Yeah, we got a deal
                                                            
                       KID
Well, thats fantastic, meet at my
house tonight before the dance and
i'll get you boys set up.

From adam west Date 6/1/2007 1/2
Why does the main character have no name? It's hard to relate to somebody known only as "the kid." Is there a story premise? Also, 40 pages - too long for a short, to short for a feature.

From Brad Smith Date 7/23/2006 1/2
Well, this could easily be pg-13 if you cut down on language. So unnecessary (sorry, I probably butchered that word).

From Zach Shevich Date 8/26/2005 0 stars
I have to disagree with KAR and J.J about needing to make it PG-13. Thirteen and Donnie Darko (I know there's other too, one just slipped my mind) are R and great teen movies. However, this doesn't look good. There are definite issue with proper way to write and lines seem forced. I like the idea but its just not done well.

From KAR Catacomb Date 8/23/2005 0 stars
i agree with j.j., if u want a teen to see this i think u have to make it pg-13!

From J.J Date 8/20/2005 1/2
How can this be? "INT. OUTSIDE - DAY" INT. means interior. You can't be on the interior of outside. Also, why would a teen movie be rated R? If you want teens to see it, wich they probably won't, cut back on the swearing.
