8th grader, exits her car.

Bye sweetie! Have a nice day at
school.

                       ALL FRIENDS
Hi Ericka.
                                                            
They go back to their conversation.
                                                            
                       SHARRON
Jack is so modest!
                                                            
                       ERICKA
      (Laughing)
Yeah, that is funny.
                                                            
                       SHELBY
It wasn't supposed to be funny.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Face it Ericka, you like Jack!
                                                            
                       ERICKA
No! I don't!
                                                            
                       ORLANDO
You do! Shut up and face the
truth!
                                                            
                       ERICKA
You guys, I'm not-.
                                                            
GARRET, a tough, skinny boy approaches Ericka, tapping her
shoulder. She reacts pushing him down. She turns and sees
him.
                                                            
                       ERICKA
Ops! I'm sorry. I thought you were
someone else.

                       GARRET
It's OK. My name's Garret and I'm
new here at the school.
                                                            
                       ALL FRIENDS
Hi Garret!
                                                            
                       GARRET
      (To Self)
Man, these guys are weird.
      (To group)
I was going to ask, where's the
room 133?
                                                            
                       ERICKA
It's over there.
                                                            
Ericka points to the door she stands next to. Garret groans.
                                                            
                       GARRET
Great...
                                                            
Garret hits Ericka at her head.
                                                            
                       ERICKA
Ow! What the hell was that for?
                                                            
                       GARRET
abusing me!
                                                            
                       ERICKA
Who's abusing who?
                                                            
Ericka and Garret look at each other intensely. Soon enough,
the bell rings for first block.

when you were born, your parents

The class laughs.
                                                            
                       MR. RODGEN
That's funny. Now, go sit next to
Ericka.
                                                            
Mr. Rodgen pushes Garret to go to the desk. Garret walks
over to the seat next to Ericka that is empty and sits in
it.

      (In despise)
Ericka.
                                                            
                       ERICKA

She hits Garret.
                                                            
                       KATIE
Do you guys like each other?
                                                            
                       ERICKA
No.
                                                            
                       GARRET
Hell no.
                                                            
                       KATIE
I am surprised, cheating on Jack.
                                                            
                       ERICKA
Me and Jack are not even dating!
                                                            
ERICKA hits GARRET for his response. GARRET hit her back.
Soon they were hitting each other.
                                                            
                       MR. RODGEN
Hey you two! Stop hitting on each
other!
                                                            
                       BOB
They're hitting on each other!
                                                            

4.

                       ROB
You guys are hitting on each other
because when you first meet, you
liked each other!
                                                            
The class laughs.
                                                            
                       MR. RODGEN
That never gets old.

From Justin D. Miller Date 3/22/2008 ***
I loved it. Its hard to read and I didn't care about the characters or know anything about them, but thats why I loved it. A perfect skit comedy. I think you should rework it a little and shoot it for youtube. Good luck. Keep up the good work.

From Cameron Date 3/16/2008 **
I loved the story line but I thought some things did not make sence like how they hit echother. I thought some of it was random but you should make it longer. It will make a good romance and it should be rated PG-13.

From Bradley Ferguson Date 3/11/2008 *
Those teachers need to get control of their school.

From Kyle Squyres Date 3/11/2008 *
Sorry, but this is kinda pointless. There is no tension or build up. There are several typos in the script, i.e. "Jack tears up the dollar and throws the shreds at Jack" Build up the characters more. Why do we care if Ericka gets with Garret or not? Good luck, it's a decent start to a love story.

From Zach Shevich Date 3/9/2008 0 stars
None of the dialog sounds realistic. My suggestion is to read it aloud (or better yet have someone read it aloud to you) and listen to whether or not you think an actual person would say it. Additionally, the jokes (for the most part) are completely unfunny. The closest to a funny joke is the "Black-man" "Black-mon" thing which is an overused type of joke. The storyline is stupid and unbelievable. There's nothing to suggest these two would fall for one another, and the whole relationship thing with Jack is unexplained and nonsensical. A lot of work is needed...
