I mean REALLY try to get along.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
Yeah the keyword being TRY.

THE CAMERA SWITCHES TO SOFIA AND ZAC.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
Look, We know we don't like
eachother. But we're stuck working
together. So we're going to have
to suck it up and deal with it the
best way we know how.
                                                            
                       ZAC
I guess you're right, The only way
we can do this thing is if we get
along.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
      (SMILES)
Guess I'm right? I know I'm right.
                                                            
ZAC ROLLS HIS EYES AND SHRUGS IT OFF.
                                                            
                       ZAC
We should really start working on
those lyrics.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
I agree.
                                                            
SOFIA SMILES and ZAC SMILES back. ZAC then opens up HIS
notebook. SOFIA and ZAC start working on the lyrics.
                                                            
THE CAMERA SWITCHES TO STACY AND STEVE
                                                            
STACY looks over at ISABELLA and DERRICK and notices they're
getting along.
                                                            
                       STACY
Aw look, They're getting along.
What did he do? Promise her a
chocolate bar!
                                                            
                       STEVE
Yeah he probably promised her two.
                                                            
STACY and STEVE laugh.
                                                            
THE CAMERA SWITCHES TO ISABELLA AND DERRICK.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
The lyrics you've been working on,
Can I see them?
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
Okay, here you go.
                                                            

27.

ISABELLA opens up her notebook, goes to the page of the
lyrics, and hands them to DERRICK. HE begins to read them. A
few seconds go by he then looks over at ISABELLA.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
Not bad, But I think we should
change a few things around.
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
Change what around?
                                                            
                       DERRICK
We need to make the words more
meaningful.
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
You're telling me meaningful?
                                                            
                       MRS. BLAKE
Isabella!
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
I know.
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
Fine.. Tell me what needs to be
changed.
                                                            
THE BELL RINGS
                                                            
                       MRS. BLAKE
Remember, You don't have to do
everything here. You can talk on
the phone, invite your partner to
your house, Just try to get
everything done.
                                                            
ISABELLA writes down her address, and gives it to DERRICK.
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
I think it would be easier if you
just came to my house, You can
bring Zac with you.
                                                            
SOFIA and ZAC come over.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
      (TO ZAC)
Looks like we're going over there
house.
                                                            
                       ZAC
We are?
                                                            

28.

                       SOFIA
Anything to say Zac?
                                                            
                       ZAC
Well, yeah.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
Just drop it Zac.
                                                            
                       ZAC
Fine..

SOFIA is standing near the stereo she turns up the volume.
MIKAS - BIG GIRLS (YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL) is playing. SOFIA and
ISABELLA start dancing to it swaying their hips back and
forth and singing. At that time DERRICK and ZAC arrive early
and see them through the window they have there bookbags and
guitar cases with them. ISABELLA picks up two water bottles
and hands one to SOFIA, they both start singing into the
water bottle as if it was a microphone.
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
      (SINGING)

                       ISABELLA
      (SINGING)
You take your girl, and multiply

women needs a whole lot more.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
      (SINGING)
Get yourself to the butterfly
lounge find yourself a big la...
                                                            
ZAC looks over at DERRICK.
                                                            
                       ZAC
Dude!
                                                            
                       DERRICK
What! It's catchy!
                                                            
SOFIA and ISABELLA turn around and notice DERRICK and ZAC
standing there. SOFIA hurries and turns off the stereo,
ISABELLA opens the door DERRICK and ZAC come in. SHE then
closes the door.
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
So.. How long were you two
standing there?
                                                            
                       ZAC
Let me see... THE WHOLE TIME!
                                                            
                       SOFIA
You know you liked the show.
                                                            
                       ZAC
Yeah.. I caught Derrick outside
singing it!
                                                            
SOFIA and ISABELLA turn and look at DERRICK.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
Sooo, Where are we going to do
this?
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
Well Sofia already claimed the
kitchen, So we can go in my
bedroom.
                                                            
                       ZAC
BOOM SHICKA BAM BAM.
                                                            

30.

                       DERRICK
REAL mature.
                                                            
DERRICK and ISABELLA leave to goto the bedroom, leaving
SOFIA and ZAC alone. ZAC puts his guitar case down then HIM
and SOFIA sit down. ZAC gets HIS notebook out, And opens to
the page where they began to write the lyrics.
                                                            
                       ZAC
Okay, So far we have one line.
                                                            
SOFIA looks down and reads the first line.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
Differences aside, We're stuck
here together.
                                                            
                       ZAC
Wonder if we can make it each day,
Do you think we can weather.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
The ups and the downs
so many tribulations.
We had this problem
It's called communication.
                                                            
ZAC smiles at SOFIA, Then writes what they said down.

INT- BEDROOM - DAY
                                                            
ISABELLA is sitting on her bed with her notebook open and
DERRICK is sitting at a desk with his guitar in his hands.
DERRICK and ISABELLA talk at the same time.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
So
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
So
                                                            
                       DERRICK

                       ISABELLA
Ready to do this?
                                                            
                       DERRICK
Ready as I'll ever be. Do you have
that song still?
                                                            

31.

                       ISABELLA
Yes, But I feel we should write
one together.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
They were good, They just needed
to be tweaked some what.
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
I know, Can we just forget about
it?
                                                            
DERRICK gets up and puts his guitar down. He tries to get
the notebook from ISABELLA.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
Come on! Give me it.
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
No!
                                                            
DERRICK continues to try to get the notebook. As soon as HE
gets the notebook HE trips and falls on top of ISABELLA they
are face to face. At that moment SOFIA and ZAC walk in.
                                                            
                       ZAC
Interupting are we?
                                                            
ISABELLA pushes DERRICK off of her and DERRICK stands up.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
      (ANGRY)
ISABELLA! HOW COULD YOU!
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
      (SHOUTS)
WHAT? HE FELL!
                                                            
                       ZAC
      (LAUGHING)
Bigger is better so I heard. You
agree with that Derrick?
                                                            
                       DERRICK
No! It's not even like that! You
know I could never!
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
Never what?
                                                            
                       DERRICK
Just forget it.
                                                            

32.

                       ISABELLA
      (SHOUTS)
No how about you forget it! GET
OUT!
                                                            
                       DERRICK
Just calm down! We have to get
started. I'm going to go
downstairs for a little while, So
you can get yourself together.
                                                            
DERRICK walks out of the room with ZAC following him. SOFIA
goes over to the bed and sits down next to ISABELLA.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
Sorry I yelled.
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
It's okay. I know how you are.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
Thank you for understanding.
                                                            
ISABELLA and SOFIA laugh.

Before ZAC can finish DERRICK stops & turns around.

                       SOFIA
So what was going on?
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
He wanted the notebook, I wouldn't
give it to him. So he kept on
trying to grab at it, When he
finally got it he took a dive and
I ended up being his cushin.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
Well you are soft.
                                                            

33.

                       ISABELLA
Thank you for that.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
Why did you get so angry?
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
Didn't you hear what he was about
to say?
                                                            
                       SOFIA
Yeah that he never.. OH!!!
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
It's not like I would ever like
someone like that.
                                                            
                       SOFIA
Izzy, Why do you let that get to
you?
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
You wouldn't understand.
                                                            
CUT TO:
                                                            
DERRICK and ZAC are in the kitchen. DERRICK opens up the
refridgerator.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
Theres one coke and diet coke.
There is no way I'm drinking the
diet.
                                                            
                       ZAC
You know I like the diet anyway!
                                                            
                       DERRICK

                       ZAC
What!
                                                            
                       DERRICK
You knew you had one coming.
                                                            
DERRICK grabs the sodas out, Closes the refriderator, and
hands ZAC the diet. THEY both open their sodas and take a
sip. ISABELLA and SOFIA come into the kitchen
                                                            
                       ISABELLA
Did.. You drink.. The last coke?
                                                            

34.

DERRICK is stunned and looks down at the Coke. ZACS head is
slowly going up and down while smirking.
                                                            
                       ZAC
      (UNDER BREATH)
This is going to be good.

                       ISABELLA

No worries, The bottles of water
are mine anyway.
                                                            
                       DERRICK
Jeez, I thought we were going to
go another round.
