UNDERCLASSMEN - EPISODE 6 "HALLOWEEN: PART
ONE"


FADE IN:

EXT. SCHOOL COURTYARD - DAY
                                                            
Eric's car pulls up to the school courtyard and he gets out
of the passenger's seat. He grabs his backpack out of the
back seat and then heads into the courtyard.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
After spending virtually all
weekend in bed, coming back to
school on Monday almost feels like
being re-introduced to society.
You start to notice things you
never noticed before. For example,
I didn't bother doing any of my
laundry so I had no clean boxers
this morning. But I decided to go
commando and it feels good...Also,
that really weird freshman Ted is
pretending to be a superhero
again.
                                                            
TED, wearing a cap and red cape, is running around. Eric
stops to watch him.
                                                            
                       TED
I am Angry Man!
                                                            
Ted approaches a STUDENT carrying some books and papers, and
then he knocks the student's stuff onto the ground.
                                                            
                       TED
Ah! Ha ha ha ha!
                                                            
Ted runs off. Eric continues his way into school.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
But most of all, you re-realize
the obvious things that have been
there all along. For a high school
student, that's one thing more
than anything else.
                                                            
 
INT. HALLWAY - DAY
                                                            
Eric, Stacy, Boom, Chris, and Liz are all hanging out in the
hallway.
                                                            

2.

                       STACY
School sucks!
                                                            
                       CHRIS
You're preaching to the choir.
                                                            
                       LIZ
Amen.
                                                            
They chuckle.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Teachers, homework.
                                                            
                       BOOM
Essays, quizzes.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Tests, exams.
                                                            
Aaron (Episodes 3 & 4), approaches the group and puts an arm
around Chris.
                                                            
                       AARON
Just wait until you're all
juniors. College, SATs, and all
that fun stuff is up ahead,
waiting for you.
                                                            
                       ERIC
      (sarcastic)
I can't wait!
                                                            
                       AARON
Hey Chris, walk with me for a
minute.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Sure.
                                                            
Aaron leads Chris away from the group.
                                                            
                       LIZ
Angry Aaron is hanging out with
Chris now?
                                                            
                       STACY
Yeah.
                                                            
Pause.
                                                            
                       STACY
So you feeling better, Eric?
                                                            

3.

                       ERIC
Yeah, thanks.
                                                            
                       STACY
Are you going to tell us what was
wrong?
                                                            
Eric bites his lip.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
I love you but you don't love me.
                                                            
Eric glances at Boom.
                                                            
                       BOOM
He doesn't need to, it's fine.
                                                            
INT. HALLWAY - NEXT
                                                            
Chris and Aaron have now spaced themselves from the group.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
So what's up?
                                                            
                       AARON
Me and some of the boys were
thinking of going out tonight.
Mischief Night. You in?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Sure, what would we be doing?
                                                            
                       AARON
Hello! It's Mis-Chief Night! What
do you think we'd be doing?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I haven't gone out on Mischief
Night since like...5th grade.
                                                            
                       AARON
Aw, you're missing out, man. You
got to come.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
It's a school night.
                                                            
                       AARON
Screw that.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Let me see if I can run it by my
mom.
                                                            

4.

                       AARON
Atta boy.
                                                            
Aaron walks away from Chris, who turns back and returns to
the group of Eric, Stacy, Boom, and Liz.
                                                            
                       STACY
What were you two talking about?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
He wants to go out tonight.
                                                            
                       STACY
Monday night?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Mischief Night.
                                                            
They all laugh.
                                                            
                       ERIC
You're not actually going to go
are you?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
It might be fun.
                                                            
They all laugh again.
                                                            
                       LIZ
      (laughing)
Don't forget the toilet paper.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Whatever man, it just sucks that
it's Monday. Damn school...they
shouldn't make us come to school
on Halloween. It's Halloween!
                                                            
                       BOOM
No, we need November 1st off, that
way we can stay out late on
Halloween.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Whatever, then they should give us
two days off.
                                                            
                       ERIC
If only.
                                                            
Stacy looks at her watch.
                                                            

5.

                       STACY
Shit! It's 8:17!
                                                            
                       ERIC
Damnit school sucks.
                                                            
                       BOOM
It doesn't just suck, it sucks
shit.
                                                            
The group splits to head to class.
                                                            
 
INT. MATH CLASSROOM - DAY
                                                            
MR. TERRY stands at the front of the classroom teaching
logarithms. Chris sits in the back of the class, staring off
into space.
                                                            
                       MR. TERRY
Chris!
                                                            
Chris, who wasn't paying attention, jumps at the sounds of
his name.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Yeah, Mr. Terry?
                                                            
                       MR. TERRY
How was the beach?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Huh?
                                                            
                       MR. TERRY
Nice waves?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I'm sorry.
                                                            
Mr. Terry rolls his eyes.
                                                            
                       MR. TERRY
Can you tell me the answer to y
equals log of 8 base 2?
                                                            
Chris stares at the problem written on the board for a
moment then shakes his head.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I'm sorry, I don't know.
                                                            

6.

                       MR. TERRY
That's what happens when you don't
pay attention.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
Teachers have a way of getting
under your skin.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Maybe if you were teaching
something worthwhile.
                                                            
                       MR. TERRY
What was that?
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
It always helps to remember that
you need to keep cool.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I just don't see the point of
learning logs, Mr. Terry. I don't
think there's a point at all. In
fact, just about every bit of
useless information you teach us,
I don't think we should be wasting
our time learning. I'm just going
to forget it this summer anyway.
So what's the point, Mr. Terry?
What's the point of this?
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
Because nothing good comes out of
making a scene.
                                                            
The bell rings.
                                                            
 
INT. LIBRARY - DAY
                                                            
Liz and Stacy sit in the library doing some school work.
                                                            
                       LIZ
So are we doing anything for
Halloween?
                                                            
                       STACY
Ugh, I don't think my mom will let
me out. She's such a bitch
sometimes.
                                                            

7.

                       LIZ
It sucks 'cause we always used to
do stuff, and now that we're in
high school, when we can actually
have fun, we're to busy to.
                                                            
                       STACY
Yeah, I know.
                                                            
Boom takes a seat next to the girls.
                                                            
                       BOOM
Hey.
                                                            
                       STACY
Hey, Boom.
                                                            
                       LIZ
Boom, you doing anything for
Halloween?
                                                            
                       BOOM
Umm...I heard a bunch of people
are going up to Jonsey's.
                                                            
                       LIZ
Really? That could be fun.
                                                            
                       STACY
IF we can go.
                                                            
 
INT. ECONOMICS CLASSROOM - DAY
                                                            
Eric and Jonsey (Episode 3) sit in Economics class with
other students. Their teacher, MR. VAUGHN, a fairly young
adult dressed casually, stands at the front of the room,
leaning against the white board.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
There are some classes that do
feel worthwhile, and that are
enjoyable. Economics is one of
those classes, mostly because our
teacher, Mr. Vaughn, is the man.
                                                            
                       MR. VAUGHN
This concept just blew my mind
when I learned it. Since the
definition of rational choice is a
the decision made based on the
information given there is no such
thing as an irrational decision.
            (MORE)

8.

                       MR. VAUGHN (cont'd)
So like...when one of you throws a
party tomorrow for Halloween,
you're making the decision that
the possible costs of the cops
coming, or your parents finding
out, aren't greater than the
possible benefits of everyone
saying "Awesome party last night"
the next day.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
What are you doing for Halloween,
Mr. Vaughn?
                                                            
                       MR. VAUGHN
Uh...my girlfriend and I might be
going out.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Is your girlfriend hot?
                                                            
                       MR. VAUGHN
      (offended)
Are you fucking kidding me?
                                                            
The class laughs and Mr. Vaughn smiles.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
It's a rule of high school:
Teachers who curse are cool.
                                                            
                       MR. VAUGHN
Seriously, what kind of question
is that? Come on guys, we have
stuff to learn.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
Although, no matter how fun a
class may be, it's always nicer to
be outside of school.
                                                            
 
EXT. CHRIS' HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Chris stands at the edge of his driveway. A car pulls up,
Aaron is driving, and another junior, Terrell (Episode 3)
sits in the passenger's seat.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Yo, bitch.
                                                            
                       AARON
Get in.
                                                            

9.

                       CHRIS
Sure.
                                                            
Chris gets in the back seat. Jimmy (Episodes 3 & 4), another
freshman, sits next to him.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Why's he here?
                                                            
                       AARON
He makes me smile.
                                                            
Aaron pulls away from the house.
                                                            
 
EXT. SUBURBAN STREETS - NIGHT
                                                            
Aaron slows down the car on a street of nice houses.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Harold lives here.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Who's that?
                                                            
                       AARON
That fucking theater fag.
                                                            
Chris is surprised by Aaron's vicious words.
                                                            
                       AARON
Jimmy, bag.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Yup.
                                                            
Jimmy hands the backpack laying at his feet to Aaron. Aaron
begins to search through it.
                                                            
                       AARON
Good, good.
                                                            
Aaron takes out four rolls of toilet paper, hands two to
Terrell and two to Chris. He then takes a carton of eggs for
himself and hands the backpack back to Jimmy.
                                                            
                       AARON
Let's go.
                                                            
Aaron, Terrell, and Chris get out of the car. Jimmy stays
seated, holding the backpack on his lap. He looks side to
side michieviously and then unzips a pocket, pulling out a
bag with a couple of joints inside.
                                                            

10.

Outside of the car, Terrell begins to wrap the mailbox in
toilet paper, Chris watches, hesitant to TP the house.
                                                            
Aaron puts the eggs on the ground and creates a box shape
with the index and thumb fingers on box hands, then closes
one eye to look through it. He picks the eggs up again and
throws a couple at the house.
                                                            
Chris starts to unravel one roll of toilet paper and then
throws it into a tree, barely creating any mess.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Are you kidding?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What?
                                                            
                       TERRELL
You basically just wasted an
entire roll of paper.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
...Sorry.
                                                            
Terrell approaches Chris and takes the second roll from him.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Give me that!
                                                            
Terrell weaves it around a couple trees, making a sizeable
mess.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
That's how you do it.
                                                            
Terrell gets back into the car. Aaron throws one more egg
then returns to the driver's seat.
                                                            
                       AARON
Hey, let's go.
                                                            
Chris takes a look at the damage and returns to the car,
where Jimmy is smoking a joint.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Oh, shit.
                                                            
Aaron laughs.
                                                            
                       AARON
Now the fun starts.
                                                            
Aaron drives off.
                                                            
 

11.

INT. ERIC'S HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
The doorbell rings and Eric rushes to open it.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
Ever hear of the saying "Old
habits die hard"?
                                                            
Eric opens the door, where Jonsey stands with a sleeping
bag, large sack of candy, and two DVDs.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Yo, bitch.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
It's most noticeable with old
friends.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Hey Jonsey...what's up?
                                                            
                       JONSEY
It's the night before Halloween,
man, are you dumb? I need to use
the crapper.
                                                            
Jonsey hands his stuff to Eric, and heads towards the
bathroom. Eric walks up to his bedroom. He puts down the
candy on a small table and throws Jonsey's sleeping bag onto
a chair, then waits, unsure of what to do.
                                                            
Jonsey enters carrying two large comforters.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Eric, every year I miss it more
and more but you have the most
comfortable blankets in the world.
                                                            
Jonsey gets into his sleeping bag, sits on a chair, and
covers himself in the blanket.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
So what are you in the mood for?
Blood and guts? Or alien invasion?
                                                            
Eric pauses. He finally cracks a smile.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Alein invasion.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
      (laughs)
Now that's what I'm talking about!
                                                            
 

12.

EXT. SUBURBAN STREET - NIGHT
                                                            
Aaron is driving with Terrell in the passenger's seat,
holding a joint, Jimmy and Chris are in the back.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Chris, do you understand the
teachings? Because I need help
spreading the enlightened word.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Sure Jimmy, but not now.
                                                            
Aaron grabs a joint from Terrell and takes a hit.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
If not now, when? Seize the day,
Chris. Carpe diem!
                                                            
                       AARON
I've got an idea.
                                                            
Aaron pulls over. He parks the car, grabs the backpack, and
exits the car.
                                                            
                       AARON
Come on.
                                                            
The rest of the guys get out of the car and follow Aaron as
he stealthily makes his way down the street.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
That's the whole magic about
Jimism. It can help to enable you
to appreciate these moments.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Shut up, Jimmy.
                                                            
Aaron crouches behind some bushes, and the guys follow and
all hide behind the same bushes. Aaron takes out a carton of
eggs.
                                                            
                       AARON
Okay, Jimmy. Jimmy, listen to me.
Are you listening?
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Okay, yeah.
                                                            
                       AARON
You need to be quiet now.
                                                            

13.

                       JIMMY
Why now? Now is as good a time as
ever to spread the word and
enlighten the people.
                                                            
                       AARON
Jimmy, we'll talk about spreading
the good word later. Now, you need
to be quiet. Okay?
                                                            
Jimmy points at Aaron, smiles, and pauses. He then nods.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Okay, quiet time.
                                                            
                       AARON
Good. Okay, so we just need to be
quiet, and just stay hidden.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What are we doing?
                                                            
                       AARON
If you wait a minute, you'll see.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Can you just tell me what we're
doing?
                                                            
                       AARON
Can you wait a minute?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Fine, but (I want to)--
                                                            
                       AARON
Then you'll see.
                                                            
Aaron takes another hit of the joint stil in his hand, grabs
an egg and waits. A car begins to pass by. Aaron winds up
and throws the egg, hitting the back door. The car slams on
its brakes. The guys chuckle.
                                                            
                       AARON
      (softly, chuckling)
Shh! Shh! Be quiet!
                                                            
The DRIVER gets out of his car, looks around, sees nothing,
then enters his car and drives away.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Nice.
                                                            

14.

                       AARON
Nah, I didn't throw it well.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Hold on, let me try.
                                                            
As another car passes, Terrell grabs an egg and hits the
car's hood. This car does not even bother to stop.
                                                            
                       AARON
Nice shot.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Nah, I was aiming for the
windshield.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Hold up, let me try.
                                                            
Chris grabs an egg and waits for the next car. When it
arrives, he throws it and nails the windshield.
                                                            
                       AARON
Nice!
                                                            
The car stops and turns on a small police light.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Oh, shit.
                                                            
                       AARON
Quiet, quiet.
                                                            
The COP gets out of his car and takes a look at his
windshield. He takes out his flashlight and looks around for
someone.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Dude, he looks like a chill guy.
                                                            
                       AARON
Quiet, Jimmy.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Guys, don't worry, it's all good.
                                                            
Jimmy gets up.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Hey, officer.
                                                            
Aaron, Terrell, and Chris gets up. Aaron grabs Jimmy and
they all begin to run off into someone's back yard.
                                                            

15.

                       AARON
Jimmy, let's go, we need to get
out of here.
                                                            
                       COP
Hey!
                                                            
The boys get into someone's backyard and jump a fence. Chris
gets stuck on the fence.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Shit! My shirt!
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Rip it.
                                                            
Chris hesitates, and then rips his shirt to break free.
                                                            
 
INT. ERIC'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Eric and Jonsey are watching the TV in silence. Eric is
freaked out but Jonsey is grinning ear to ear from the film.
A woman can be heard screaming and then an alien cries out
and blood and cuts can be heard splattering.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Aw that's distgusting.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Best of both worlds! I love it.
                                                            
                       ERIC
How can you enjoy that shit?
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Don't be smart on me, you like it
too.
                                                            
                       ERIC
I don't celebrate it.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Who's celebrating? It's just
awesome.
                                                            
Pause.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
You got a girlfriend?
                                                            

16.

                       ERIC (V.O.)
For a moment I thought about
lying.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Ye--well...no...you?
                                                            
Jonsey pauses to think of his answer.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
I've got girls. I don't need a
girlfriend right now though.
                                                            
                       ERIC
That's cool.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
So have you hooked up with a girl
yet?
                                                            
                       ERIC
Yeah.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
You're a liar.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
When?
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
Don't be too specific.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Umm...down in Florida, over the
summer. Christina. She was really
nice. Blonde hair, blue eyes, plus
or minus one hundred twenty
pounds, you know the type. Kind of
jappy though, I didn't like that.
But hey, it was summer and we
needed something to do, right?
                                                            
Jonsey grunts. Pause.
                                                            
                       ERIC
What about you? What have you
done?
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Gotten and given head.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
What?!?
                                                            

17.

                       JONSEY (cont'd)
It's no big deal.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
It is to me.
                                                            
 
EXT. SUBURBAN STREETS - NIGHT
                                                            
Aaron, Terrell, Chris, and Jimmy are running. Terrell stops
running.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Yo, hold up, hold up.
                                                            
Chris, Aaron, and Jimmy stop running.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
I think we're good.
                                                            
                       AARON
Shit, man. Jimmy! What the fuck is
your problem?!?
                                                            
Jimmy laughs wildly. Aaron pushes him and he falls hard to
the ground but continues to laugh.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
I told you not to bring that kid,
he's a freak.
                                                            
Pause. Aaron pulls out a joint once more and lights it. He
takes a hit and passes it to Terrell. Terrell takes a hit
and tries to hand it to Chris.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
No, dude.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Yo, it'll relax you.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Fuck! I don't need to fucking
relax!
                                                            
                       AARON
Hey, hey, calm down. If he doesn't
want a toke then don't bother.
                                                            
Aaron takes the joint back from Terrell and takes a hit.
                                                            

18.

                       AARON
Come on, let's head back to the
car.
                                                            
 
INT. ERIC'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Jonsey and Eric watch the movie.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
You got a crush on someone?
                                                            
                       ERIC
Well, kind of...yeah.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Who?
                                                            
                       ERIC
Stacy.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
...Her?
                                                            
                       ERIC
Yeah her, why?
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Isn't she going out with Chris?
                                                            
                       ERIC
Well yeah, but (that doesn't...)--
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Aren't you and Chris boys?
                                                            
                       ERIC
Yeah, I guess.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Dude...that's not good.
                                                            
                       ERIC
I can't really help it...I like
her.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
I guess...but...her?
                                                            
                       ERIC
What do you mean "her"?
                                                            

19.

                       JONSEY
I don't know, she can be weird.
And she complains a lot. It gets
annoying.
                                                            
                       ERIC
She complains to you?
                                                            
                       JONSEY
She bitches to everybody.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Well, everyone has a right to
complain about something.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Dude, this isn't important. Let's
just watch the movie, alright?
                                                            
                       ERIC
Fine.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
I guess what bothers me most about
hanging out with Jonsey is that he
and I were such good friends for
such a long time...when did he
just get so much cooler than me?
                                                            
A man screams loudly on the TV.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
It's alright if I sleep here,
right?
                                                            
                       ERIC
Yeah, sure.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Sweet.
                                                            
 
EXT. SUBURBAN STREETS - NIGHT
                                                            
Aaron is driving the car very slowly with the right side
back door open. Chris walks by the door with a carton of
eggs. When they get to a driveway, Chris throws the last
egg, hitting the door.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I'm out again.
                                                            

20.

                       AARON
Nice shot.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
You got a good arm.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Jimmy, new carton.
                                                            
Chris hands the empty carton to Jimmy.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
You all don't realize the
magnitude of what we're dealing
with. Reality is only a concept.
So is time. To realize reality for
what it is, something unreal, is
to gain access to enlightenment,
and enable yourself to be saved.
You want to be saved? Because I
want to be saved. I'm going to
save us. I'm going to save the
world.
                                                            
                       AARON
See this is why I brought him! I
love this kid!
                                                            
Jimmy takes a new carton of eggs out of the backpack and
hands it to Chris. Chris takes the carton, opens it, and
throws an egg at the next house.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Yo, how many more houses do you
want to do?
                                                            
                       AARON
Why? You not having fun?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
No, I'm just wondering.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Yo, check that out...scarecrow.
                                                            
At the next house, a SCARECROW sits on a bench. Terrell
grabs the backpack from the back seat, but Jimmy holds on to
it.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
No! I need it!
                                                            

21.

                       TERRELL
Jimmy, get the fuck off.
                                                            
Terrell rips the bag away from Jimmy.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
What the fuck is wrong with you?
                                                            
Terrell reaches into the backpack and pulls out a bottle of
shaving cream.
                                                            
                       TERRELL
Yo, go put this shit on the
scarecrow.
                                                            
Terrell hands the shaving cream to Chris, who chuckles.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Okay.
                                                            
Chris approaches the scarecrow slowly. When he gets close,
the scarecrow, which is actually Ted dressed up, jumps.
                                                            
                       TED
Back off!
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Shit! Shit Ted, you scared shit
out of me! Shit!
                                                            
                       TED
      (yelling)
If you don't leave in the next
five seconds, I'll show you a
"trick", and I promise, it won't
be a treat.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Hey, Ted, relax, it's Chris. We go
to school together. We're in the
same grade.
                                                            
                       TED
One...Two...
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Ted?
                                                            
                       TED
Three...Four...Five!
                                                            

22.

Ted reaches underneath the bench where he was sitting for a
bucket of water, which he throws at Chris, leaving Chris
completely soaked.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Motherfuck!
                                                            
Chris runs back to the car where Aaron, Jimmy, and Terrell
are laughing hysterically. The doors are now all closed and
locked. Chris tries to open one but cannot. Terrell's window
is open.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Fuck dude, this is freezing! Let
me get in the car.
                                                            
                       AARON
Are you kidding? And get my car
all wet? Better luck next time.
                                                            
Aaron drives off leaving Chris alone, soaked and shivering.
                                                            
 
INT. ERIC'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
The movie finishes and both Eric and Jonsey get out of their
chairs.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Man, I love horror flicks.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Yeah, I guess.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
What, you don't?
                                                            
                       ERIC
I don't know, I think there's
better stuff.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Whatever.
                                                            
Jonsey goes into Eric's closet and pulls out a mattress.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
You trick-or-treating tomorrow?
                                                            
                       ERIC
You serious, Jonsey? We're in high
school.
                                                            

23.

                       JONSEY
Hey, I could be getting social
security, I'll still love me some
candy.
                                                            
                       ERIC
I just think we're getting a bit
old for this.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
What? Do you not want me coming
over anymore?
                                                            
                       ERIC
No, that's not it. It's fun
chilling with you and stuff, it's
just we're not kids.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Eric, we've been doing this for
ten years now. It's not about
being kids. It's about tradition.
                                                            
                       ERIC
Tradition? Dude, we don't hang out
that much anymore. We have
different friends, different
groups. It's not like we've been
keeping everything the same.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
Do you want me to leave? Because I
will.
                                                            
                       ERIC
No, I like hanging out but you can
talk out of your ass sometimes.
                                                            
                       JONSEY
And you can be an ass sometimes,
Eric.
                                                            
Jonsey lies down, and the boys are silent. Eric turns off
the light.
                                                            
 
EXT. SUBURBAN STREETS - NIGHT
                                                            
Chris is walking home, shivering.
                                                            
                       ERIC (V.O.)
We all do things we regret, just
because we're with friends.
            (MORE)

24.

                       ERIC (cont'd)
Ultimately, you just have to hope
the things you do won't come back
to bite you in the ass.
                                                            
A cop car turns onto the street Chris is on and immediately
turns its siren on.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Shit.
                                                            
The cop car pulls up next to Chris. The COP, rolls down his
window and shines a flashlight at Chris.
                                                            
                       COP
How you doing?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Not too bad.
                                                            
                       COP
Son, do you realize that there's a
nine o'clock curfew in affect
tonight?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I do Sir, I was just walking home
from a friend's house.
                                                            
Pause. The cop notices water drip off of Chris' hair and
face.
                                                            
                       COP
Are you wet?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Yeah, I am.
                                                            
Pause.
                                                            
                       COP
Could you get in the back of the
car, son?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
My house is just a couple blocks
up.
                                                            
                       COP
Okay, I'm not asking.
                                                            
Chris gets into the cop car.
