RUGBY SCRUM

FADE IN:

EXT. MOVING DAY - OPENING - DAY
                                                            
                       MICK AS NARRATOR
      (As Narrator)
Jay Fenton was his name and
sports, girls, and drinking was
his game, of course not
necessarily in that order. Jay
grew up on the outskirts of
Chicago in which he dreamed of one
day growing up and playing
football for the Chicago Bears.
                                                            
During intro show Jay helping Melody and Christi move into
their dorm. Throwing a little football with a big smile on
his face.

                                                            
Cut to a shot of his high school football coach.
                                                            
                       JAY' FOOTBALL COACH
      (Behind a desk)
Jay was never the best athlete,
but he put work, heart, and
attitude into everything he did.
                                                            
Back to moving in day.
                                                            
                       MICK AS NARRATOR
      (Voice over)
We pick up Jay's life in his third
year of college. He decided to
transfer from a local community
college located in the Chicago
Suburbs to the more distant
Southern Missouri University. He
was able to drag along enough
credits that entitled him to the
status of second semester
sophomore. He didn't think his
girlfriend would follow him.
                                                            
Jay helping the girls move into their all girls dorm. Girls
are lying out, Jay checking them out, girls crying and
hugging their parents bye. It is a normal college moving day
atmosphere.

Melody bossing Jay around a little. Jay bossing right back.
Background and more description of characters.
                                                            
                       MICK AS NARRATOR
      (Voice over)
His leeching girlfriend, Melody,
followed him to school. Melody
Werner was her name. She was a
pretty Italian girl with a happy
go lucky attitude that could
change in an instant when tempted.
Jay and Melody have a fight- sex
relationship. Either they are
fighting or screwing. She was
excited to be entering her first
year of college with Jay and her
best friend Christy. Melody and
Christy lived across campus in an
all girls dorm that housed 150
scarcely dressed tanned coeds.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Melody)
We better pick up the pace. I
still have to move in myself.
                                                            
Jay looking at a couple of girls with tight shirts and
shorts on.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Self)
I hope my coed dorm floor has
hotties like that.
                                                            
                       MELODY
      (From Bathroom)
We will help me you big lug.
                                                            
Melody is in the bathroom fixing her hair.
                                                            
                       JAY
Yea right, just like you are
helping now.
                                                            
 
INT. MICK MOVING IN TO THE DORM - DAY
                                                            
Mick with the help of his parents moving into the dorm.
                                                            

3.

                       MICK
      (To Parents)
Man this is a lot of floors up. I
hope being on the thirteenth floor
isn't a sign of bad things to
come.
                                                            
The elevator in the lobby has a mile long line of coeds and
parents wanting to move into the high rise dormitory
                                                            
                       LAVERNE MITCHELL
Let's take the stairs.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Looks at his dad
       in disbelief.)
All right, if you can handle it.
                                                            
                       LAVERNE MITCHELL
If I can handle it? Son, I work
for a living.
                                                            
                       MICK'S MOM
Ok, you two let's go before more
people decide to take the stairs.
                                                            
 
INT. MICK MOVING IN DORMROOM HALL - DAY
                                                            
Mick and his dad walking down the hall overhearing the
student resident assistant (RA) crying on the phone saying
that they put her in the worst dorm on campus.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (To Dad)
That's not a good sign.
                                                            
                       LAVERNE MITCHELL
Oh you will just have to make the
most of this opportunity. You
don't want to have to work as hard
as I do everyday.
                                                            
                       MICK
I know dad. I won't disappoint
you and mom.
                                                            
                       LAVERNE MITCHELL
You never have and never will.
                                                            
They move to the end of the hall.

INT. JAY AND MEETS FIRST ROOMATE AND MICK - DAY
                                                            
Jay proclaiming while entering a small dirty dorm room.
Talking to his girlfriend and her roomate Christie.
                                                            
                       JAY
Look at this shit hole! I knew it
I just knew it, they stuck us in
the dorm with all of the dorks.
Not to mention my roommate looks
like a computer geek.
                                                            
We view his roommate from afar setting up his computer.
                                                            
                       JAY
Hey, I'm Jay Jay. You going to
help with my homework?
                                                            
                       NATE
I'm Nate and I'll tutor you if
need be.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (pissed)
This dorm was supposed to be coed,
but it only has a twenty to one
guy/girl ratio.
                                                            
                       NATE
At least we can chat online and
talk to each other.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Nate)
Well, I guess we will have to make
the most of this situation, right
Jake.
                                                            
                       NATE
It's Nate.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Nonchalant)
Whatever Jake.
                                                            
                       NATE
      (Excited)
Cool you have a TV. I can splice
my router to get updated software
downloads from the library and
net.
                                                            

5.

                       JAY
      (Just to Melody)
We are going to have to lighten up
this clown if we are going to have
any fun.
                                                            
Two students occupy each dorm room, which shared a bathroom
with another room. Jay poked his head into the tiny,
bleach filled bathroom. The bathroom was freshly painted
and it had one toilet and a single shower.
                                                            
                       CHRISTIE
      (To Melody)
Our dorm is so much nicer.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Melody and
       Christie)
This may fit the three of us in
it. We will have to try it
sometime.
                                                            
Nate gets a big smile on his face.
                                                            
                       JAY
Settle down Sparky! I'm talking
to Melody and Christie.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (As Narrator)
Christie Angel was Melody's friend
and roommate. They were both along
to see Jay's new living
arrangements. She had big eyes,
hair, and breasts and was as smart
as a 2-cent stamp. Some people
from her hometown had a bet on
whether or not she would flunk out
of school in her first or second
semester. She would later become
known as the rugby queen. Because
she was very popular with the
rugby players, if you know what I
mean.
                                                            
Jay steps through the bathroom to their dorm mates' room,
which is Mick's room.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Mick and Andy)
I'm Jay and this is my girlfriend
Melody and her friend Christy.
Christy likes to screw.
                                                            

6.

Both guys got flush in the face as they introduced
themselves.
                                                            
                       MICK
I'm Mick Mitchell.
                                                            
Moves from suitcase where he is unpacking to shake Jay's
hand.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Half pissed)
And I'm out of here.
                                                            
Andy leaves the room with suitcase.
                                                            
                       JAY
What's up with him?
                                                            
                       MICK
Oh he just doesn't like the
"living" arrangements. His name
is or was Andy. It is not the
greatest dorm, but we will have to
make the most out of a bad
situation.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Party said the
       way it is spelt)
I agree. We will make the most of
it and just learn to partay with
one another. Unless someone screws
with me and then I'll have to kick
their ass.
                                                            
In walks their RA, Lisa, who is assigned to their dorm
floor.

                                                            
                       LISA THE RA
Get ready guys we will be having
our opening orientation in about a
half-hour.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (To Jay)
Well, I guess we get to meet the
other students on our floor.
                                                            
                       JAY
Sounds lame. Let's go get to know
them our own way. Come on.
                                                            

7.

Jay motions Mick to join him as they leave the room.
                                                            
 
INT. JAY AND MICK MEET FLOOR - DAY
                                                            
Music over: Cut to Mick and Jay going around the floor
getting aquatinted with their new neighbors and each other.
They got along great from the start. Show Ray flirting with
girls. (Even though he has a girlfriend).

                                                            
 
INT. DORM FLOOR ORIENTATION - FLOOR COMMON AREA - DAY
                                                            
Show about 30 guys and 10 girls. The girls are not very
attractive.
                                                            
                       LISA THE RA
Welcome everyone to the 13th floor
student orientation. Now I would
like for everyone to introduce
themselves, say where you are
from, your major if you have one,
something that makes you unique,
and anything else that you would
like to share with your new
neighbors.
                                                            
                       FEMALE STUDENT 1
      (To Jay
       Provocatively)
I like to play.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Moving away.)
I bet you do.
                                                            
                       LISA THE RA
Do I have any volunteers?
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Standing)
I'm Jay Fenton. I'm from Woodstock
and my major is chasing girls and
drinking beer. No seriously, it is
Criminal Justice. I don't want to
be no friggin' cop, but something
cooler like a private detective.
I'm twenty years old and entering
my third year in school, but have
a second semester sophomore
status. I love contact sports and

lifting weights.
                                                            
                       LISA THE RA
      (Looking at Mick)
You're next. Tell us a little
about yourself.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Standing)
Well my name is Mick Mitchell; I'm
from a small town near St. Louis.
My degree is Civil Engineering.
This is my second year of college.
I enjoy all types of sports and
don't have a girlfriend, unlike
Jay here.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Mick)
Thanks pal. You just ruined my
chances with all of the girls on
this floor.
                                                            
Jay taking a second glance around the room
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Mick)
Thanks partner. No, I should
really thank you because I don't
want to date anyone on this floor.
I signed up for a coed floor to
get some action close to "home,"
but it looks like we got stuck on
the "homely" floor.
                                                            
Everyone gets up and shares some personnel information. The
guys get a feeling of whom they would want to hang around
with and whom they would avoid.
                                                            
                       GUY
      (Standing)
Hi, I'm Guy. I'm twenty-eight
years old. Don't even think about
asking me to buy beer.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Under breath to
       Mick)
Shit.
                                                            

Jay catches up with Guy in the hall after orientation. Hey

9.

dude what you say we hang out a little.
                                                            
                       GUY
Sounds good, do you need me to get
some beer?
                                                            
                       JAY
Yea!
                                                            
                       GUY
Forget about it!
                                                            
Guy walks away.
                                                            
                       MICK
Hey, Jay don't worry. Looky hear.
                                                            
Mick pulls out his brother's ID.
                                                            
                       MICK
I scored my brothers ID before I
left. He looks just like me only
he's twenty-one!
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Excited)
Sweet. We're set!
                                                            
 
INT. JAY AND MICK MEET GIRL NEIGHBORS NEXT DOOR - DAY
                                                            
Two nice black girls live across the hall from the guys.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Walking into
       girls room)
What do we have to eat ladies? Why
weren't you in orientation?
                                                            
                       KIM
      (With attitude)
You can knock before you just
barge into a room.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Backing away)
Sorry, sorry. We're just the
welcoming committee. I'm Jay and
this is Mick. We live across the
hall.
                                                            

10.

                       EMMA
Oh don't worry about it she just
misses her man.
                                                            
                       KIM
      (More attitude)
Do not!
                                                            
                       EMMA
      (Sarcastically)
MMM'mmm, I see not at all.
                                                            
                       MICK
It is our fault we will knock from
here on out. So, do you have
anything to eat?
                                                            
                       KIM
Rude and moochers. Cook it
yourself.
                                                            
Throws them each a box of ramen noodles.
                                                            
                       MICK
Thanks.
                                                            
                       EMMA
When we get some real food we will
let you two know.
                                                            
                       JAY
Mick let's go hit the strip. We
need a break from all this
studying that we have been doing.
                                                            
                       KIM
But, class hadn't even started
yet?
                                                            
                       JAY
Yea, we need a break. Talk with
you girls later.
                                                            
 
EXT. WALKING THROUGH CAMPUS TO THE STRIP - NIGHT
                                                            
Show Jay and Mick walking from the high-rise dormitory to
the "strip" that is located about a mile from their dorm.
                                                            
                       MICK AS NARRATOR
      (Voice over)
We were both new to campus, but
Jay had more self-confidence that
            (MORE)

11.

                       MICK AS NARRATOR (cont'd)
was readily apparent.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Out of breath)
This walk is going to suck if we
have to make it every time we want
to have a little fun.
                                                            
                       JAY
Yea I agree, but with a little
hotty under your arms and a couple
of beers in your gut, it will make
the walk seem a lot shorter.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Big smile)
Sure would.
                                                            
 
EXT. AMERICAN TAP - FIRST BAR - NIGHT
                                                            
Show a long line that rapped around a stone fence separating
the public from the elevated beer garden.
                                                            
                       JAY
Man, look at all of the chicks
around here. I hope Melody doesn't
decide to come over to the strip
very often or this could be a
lonnnng year.
                                                            
                       MICK
Yes, but this looks like the place
to be. I thought you two were
serious?
                                                            
                       JAY
Yea, were serious in her mind, but
we're only really serious when I
need a little action.
                                                            
                       MICK
What's the story with her
roommate? She's cute but seems to
be little on the ditsy side.
                                                            
                       JAY
Exactly, my friend, exactly.
                                                            
As they look at two girls walk bye.
                                                            

12.

                       JAY
Why would I be serious with
prospects like that on campus?
                                                            
                       MICK
This looks like the place to be.
Let's hit it.
                                                            
 
INT. AMERICAN TAP - 1 - NIGHT
                                                            
The guys hear a group of guys signing. It isn't really a
catchy tune and it isn't recognizable. It sounds sort of
like an Irish song, but every one of them know the words and
are hugging one another. It is a classic rugby song. The
guys are hugging one another and having a good time at the
bar. The ruggers are still in their rugby uniforms for that
afternoons game. Some are bloody and bruised, but both teams
are there partying together.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Points at the
       ruggers)
Who are the fags in the corner?
                                                            
                       MICK
I don't know, but they look like
they get along a little too well.
                                                            
                       JAY
Here it is Saturday night and
everyone on the strip was dressed
to impress, but not this bunch of
drunkards.
                                                            
Mick goes up to the bar to buy a couple of beers.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (To the hot female
       bartender)
Two beers. Who are those guys?
Sort of looks like they had been
playing sand lot football all
afternoon.
                                                            
                       FEMALE BARTENDER 1
      (Working, in a
       hurry)
You look like a nice guy, you
don't want to hang around them.
Nobody wants to hang around them
unles..
                                                            

13.

She moves a little down the bar to get some beers.
                                                            
                       MICK
Unless what?
                                                            
                       FEMALE BARTENDER 1
Unless you play. 4 bucks.
                                                            
                       MICK
Play, play what?
                                                            
                       FEMALE BARTENDER 1
Rugby.
                                                            
An attractive waitress comes behind Mick.
                                                            
                       MICK
Rugby? I've seen that on ESPN
late at night. That looks like a
vicious game.
                                                            
                       WAITRESS 1
Girls hate them, but can't resist
them. Guys that don't play hate
them, because they don't
understand them.
                                                            
                       FEMALE BARTENDER 1
They knock the crap out of each
other during the day and party
like long lost brothers at night.
                                                            
                       MICK
So you say you can't resist them.
                                                            
                       WAITRESS 1
They are assholes. They are all
into one-night stands and the guys
with girlfriends still have
one-night stands.
                                                            
                       FEMALE BARTENDER 1
They stroll around campus blending
in like typically students, but
once you get them in a pack, at
the bar or on the field or sorry
"pitch", watch out.
                                                            
                       FEMALE BARTENDER 1
They get along with everyone
except if you play another sport
or are in a fraternity, which is
about half of the male population

                       FEMALE BARTENDER 1 (cont'd)
at school.
                                                            
                       MICK
What about the girls?
                                                            
                       FEMALE BARTENDER 1
Girls know they are no good, but
there is just something about a
rugby player that makes, makes a
girl want them.
                                                            
As she gazes at the group of rugby players.
                                                            
                       WAITRESS 1
I think it is the fact that they
don't care about there appearance.
They aren't afraid to be
themselves, and they have great
parties.
                                                            
                       FEMALE BARTENDER 1
Yea, and they wear short shorts.
                                                            
                       MICK
Thanks for the info.
                                                            
Mick and Jay grab a spot at the bar just within shouting
distance of the Rugby players. Right in the middle of one of
the songs a short stocky guy starts signing solo.
                                                            
                       NAP
      (Singing)
If I was a Rugby guy, I thank the
lord I met cha, and if I would be
a rugby player I would be a rugby
prop sir.
                                                            
                       ALL PLAYERS
      (Like they are
       surprised, but
       really know the
       lyrics by heart.)
Prop Sir?
                                                            
                       NAP
      (Singing)
Yes, I would play with hookers, we
would play with hookers, and we
all would play with hookers.
                                                            
Nap Gets into scrum position with a prop and a hooker in
between. The players all laugh.
                                                            

15.

                       BUSCH
      (Singing)
If I was a Rugby guy, I thank the
lord I left her, and if I would be
a rugby player I would be a rugby
Boot sir.
                                                            
                       ALL PLAYERS
Boot Sir?
                                                            
As Busch points to his rugby shoe or in rugby terms Boot.
                                                            
                       BUSCH
I'd come in a box, you would come
in a box we all would come in a
box.
                                                            
                       ALL PLAYERS
Laugh.
                                                            
                       BULLWINKLE
      (Singing)
If I was a Rugby guy, I thank the
lord I left her, and if I would be
a rugby player I would be a rugby
Try sir.
                                                            
                       ALL PLAYERS
Try Sir?
                                                            
                       BULLWINKLE
      (Stuttering not
       smooth)
I would try, ah maybe she would
try… we all would try.
                                                            
                       GMONEY
You suck Bullwinkle!
                                                            
                       ALL PLAYERS
      (To Bullwinkle)
Booooo Booo! You suck! Shoot the
boot! Shoot the boot, na na na,
shoot the boot, na na na.
                                                            
G-Money takes off his worn Rugby Boot and proceeds to pour
part of his beer into it. He passes his boot to the next guy
who puts a little bit of Capt'n and diet Coke in it. The
next fellow puts his last bit of backwashed beer into the
boot and finally a guy with a little Skoal in between his
cheek and gum spits in the boot. The shoe makes it back to
the original sorry SOB (Bullwinkle) who messed up the lyrics

16.

to an old tried and true song. Shoot the boot, na na na,
shoot the boot, na na na is continued by the group.
                                                            
                       BULLWINKLE
      (butchering it)
OK, here's to the breezes that
blows through the treeses that
lifts the skirts above the kneeses
and hears to the spot that pleases
teases and spreads diseases, Jesus
what a snatch, down the hatch.
                                                            
Chugs the boot.
                                                            
Jay and Mick look at each other in amazement and disgust.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (To Jay)
Those guys are nuts!
                                                            
The ruggers are singing another song as the boys are
leaving.
                                                            
                       JAY
Let's move to the next bar.
                                                            
 
EXT. FIRST DAY OF CLASS – SEES NERD GETTING BULLIED - DAY
                                                            
Mick walking through campus he sees a sorry looking
Bullwinkle walking with his head down like he had too much
to drink and with a little green tint to him like he drank
someone's dip cup, which in essence he did the night before.

As Mick continues to walk to class he sees a flyer hanging
on a bulletin board. It says, come out and join the Rugby
club. Practice starts at 4pm at the recreation fields at the
back of campus. It's fun! Hang out with a great group of
guys.

Mick makes a mental note of the time and location of the
practice.

Mick sees a nerd getting picked on by three Hispanic
students. They are playing keep away with the nerd's
backpack. Mick kind of shakes his head and walks home.
                                                            
 
INT. JAY TELLS MICK HE WENT TO RUGBY PRACTICE - NIGHT
                                                            
Mick is listening to some music and doing a little homework
that his math teacher gave him one the first day of class no
doubt. He heard big Jay chatting and stomping down the hall.
                                                            

17.

                       JAY
      (Singing a little
       off key)
Shoot the boot na na na shoot the
boot.
I got to kick a little ass today.
                                                            
Jay has comes in the door with workout clothes, a torn
shirt, with blood and dirt on it.
                                                            
                       MICK
What do you mean, it looks like
you got your ass kicked?! You have
blood on your shirt and face.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (smiling)
I played rugby today. Well,
practiced rugby, but it was
awesome.
                                                            
                       MICK
No shit you're kidding! I saw a
flyer today and thought it looked
pretty cool.
                                                            
                       JAY
You interested in playing?
                                                            
                       MICK
Hell yea, I'm interested. I
played high school football and
grew up playing sandlot football
with my brother and friends from
back home.
                                                            
                       JAY
We'll go out tomorrow at 4:00.
                                                            
 
EXT. MICK'S FIRST RUGBY PRACTICE - DAY
                                                            
Jay and Mick walk up the rugby pitch. Mick has on old
football cleats.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Nap)
Nap, this is my roommate Mick. He
would like to play rugby.
                                                            

18.

                       NAP
I would like a lot of things but
don't always get them. You ever
play rook?
                                                            
                       MICK
I played high school football.
                                                            
                       NAP
High school football. Similar but
very different. You ever play
sandlot football?
                                                            
                       MICK
All the time.
                                                            
                       NAP
That is about the closest thing.
Let me see the bottom of your
spikes.
                                                            
Mick shows Nap the bottom of his spikes. Nap looks in
disgust. He walks over to his backpack and gets a long
knife.
                                                            
                       NAP
Give it here.
                                                            
Nap cuts off the end toe spike of each shoe.
                                                            
                       NAP
OK, now you are legal. Get over
there and stretch.
                                                            
Show them stretching and then music over going through rugby
drills and tackling drills. Show Mick getting his butt
kicked but still having fun.
                                                            
                       NAP
      (To Mick)
Are you coming back out tomorrow
rook?
                                                            
                       MICK
Wouldn't miss it for the world.
                                                            
As Nap turns Mick holds his ribs as he walks with Jay away
from the pitch.
                                                            
 

19.

EXT. FIGHT COMING HOME FROM RUGBY PRACTICE - NIGHT
                                                            
Jay and Mick are roller blading home from rugby practice,
which is on the other side of campus.
                                                            
                       MICK
That was a son of a gun practice.
But it was fun.
                                                            
                       JAY
You can say that again. A lot
better than studying at the
library. I'm beat, but I'll still
beat you home.
                                                            
Jay races off on his roller blades.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Trying to keep up)
Doesn't look like you put enough
effort into practice.
                                                            
We view Jay and Mick racing through campus. Jay cruises
near the dorm where a group of Hispanic thugs are outside
smoking, loitering, playing loud music, and looking like
they are up to no good. As Jay roller blades by the group a
small Hispanic student sticks out his foot and tries to trip
Jay. He then grabs Jay's backpack. Same group picking on
the nerd.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (pissed)
What the hell's your problem!
                                                            
                       THUG 1
I was trying to mess up your white
face.
                                                            
Mick races up. Jay grabs his backpack back from the kid
with force, practically flinging the hoodlum through the
air.
                                                            
                       JAY
Do you want to dance little man?
                                                            
                       THUG 1
      (Backed by his
       posse)
Bring it on homes.
                                                            
                       THUG 2
Yea bring it on, hombre!
                                                            

20.

                       JAY
Let me change out of my blades so
I can whoop your ass fare and
square.
                                                            
Jay and Mick skate to a near by bench away from the group in
order to change into their shoes, which are in their
backpacks.
                                                            
                       MICK
Jay, there are like 10 of them and
only two of us.
                                                            
Show the dorm security guards looking like they don't know
what the hell to do and how crazy the boys must be to want
to fight a whole group of thugs. Sam the guard picks up the
phone.
                                                            
                       SECURITY SAM
Man we have to call the cops.
                                                            
                       SECURITY SETH
No, hold off. These thugs have
been spooking everyone who comes
into this dorm. This might be just
what they needed.
                                                            
                       SECURITY SAM
What? To whip those two guys butt?
                                                            
                       SECURITY SETH
No, for someone to finally stand
up to them. You know the cops
won't make them leave. A couple of
them actually live here.
                                                            
                       SECURITY SAM
You're right, but if those two get
killed don't say I didn't warn
you.
                                                            
We go back to Jay and Mick.
                                                            
                       JAY
Never fear, you can't be
intimidated especially just going
to your own home. I'm going to
show this little punk who's boss.
If we don't put a stop to them
they will scare people all
semester. This time they messed
with the wrong dude.
                                                            

21.

                       MICK
You know I have your back, but you
need to rethink this. Hey where
the hell did they all go?
                                                            
The boys look over to the thugs and the little troublemaker
is standing there all alone.
                                                            
                       THUG 1
Yea boy it's just me. Let's go
around the corner so we can take
care of this.
                                                            
                       JAY
Screw that. That is where all your
boys went. I'm going to whip your
ass right here and now.
                                                            
Jay hits the punk. All of his buddy's come running around
the corner. Jay gets in a couple of good punches and Mick
pulls him closer to the dorm entrance. Mick shoves two of
the guys as they come around the corner. The boys fight
there way closer to the dorm breeze way. The breezeway is a
small lobby that is all glassed in. Only three of the thugs
make it into the breeze way before Mick slams the door and
locks the rest of the gang out.
                                                            
                       MICK
Now, I like these odds a little
better.
                                                            
The thugs look scared.
                                                            
                       JAY
Now what the hell are you going to
do?
                                                            
Jay picks up a trashcan and throws it at the group of three,
which knocks them to the ground. The gang starts breaking
into the door.
                                                            
                       MICK
That's enough, let's go.
                                                            
Jay gets in another punch on one of the thugs. The security
guards let only Jay and Mick into the dorm.
                                                            
                       SECURITY SAM
Mick, get him the hell upstairs.
                                                            
                       JAY
Boys that needed to be done.
                                                            

22.

                       SECURITY SETH
      (Nods in agreement)
Go on fellas, before the cops
come.
                                                            
 
INT. NEXT MORNING AT DORM BREAKFAST - DAY
                                                            
Jay and Mick, along with Melody and Christie walk into the
dorm cafeteria. The crowded lunchroom stands up and applauds
them for their heroics. Word spreads quickly about what
they did the night before.
                                                            
                       STUDENT 1
Way to go fellas.
                                                            
                       STUDENT 1
Way to kick some butt and stand up
for us!
                                                            
Shouts of appreciation come from everywhere.
                                                            
                       JAY
And you didn't want to fight.
                                                            
                       MICK
I know, I know.
                                                            
Both guys waive to the crowd.
Music plays in the background.
                                                            
 
EXT. RUGBY PRACTICE - DAY
                                                            
Rugby players are slowly making their way out to the pitch.
Half look like they are hung over.
                                                            
                       NAP
Ok, you sorry bunch losers. Shut
the fuck up and listen. Word has
it that we have a couple of Barney
bad asses on the team trying make
us look bad. Rookies no doubt.
                                                            
                       REEFER
Rookies? Let's kill the little
bitches.
                                                            
                       NAP
Hold on, hold on, now let me talk
you little Sallies. No rookies, I
mean no rookies can wear rugby
gear out to the bars, to class, or
to your fucking mom's house. Got
            (MORE)

23.

                       NAP (cont'd)
it! You haven't deserved the
right.
                                                            
                       COON DOG
But I just spent $250 bucks on
rugby apparel.
                                                            
                       REEFER
It looks like you bought the
veterans some rugby gear. You may
get it back next semester if you
last that long.
                                                            
                       NAP
It is rookie bitches like you that
cause me to loose my fucking hair.
Now, let's get back to practice.
Oh, hold up. One other thing. I'm
a History TA and I heard two girls
talking about how these two guys
stood up to some thugs. They said
that they had rugby gear on. It
wouldn't be any of you rookies
would it?
                                                            
                       ASTRO
There is only one thing worse than
a rookie wearing rugby hats and
gear. That is some chicken dicked
fuck that hasn't stepped foot on a
pitch wearing the gear.
                                                            
                       MICK
It was me that was wearing a rugby
hat the other night. I didn't know
the rule.
                                                            
                       NAP
That's another thing. It is still
pretty early in the semester. I
have seen a couple of twerps
wearing our shit to the bars.
Tonight we put a stop to the shit
and we all get hats and shirts.
Rookies, the rugby shit you get or
already have keep them in your
fucking closet. I better not see
you wearing them until next
semester.
                                                            

24.

                       NAP
Didn't know the rule? Did you know
to go to class the first day?
                                                            
                       MICK
Sure.
                                                            
                       NAP
Did you know that the strip was
the place to chase skirts?
                                                            
                       MICK
Sure.
                                                            
                       NAP
Did you know to…
                                                            
Cut off by Jay
                                                            
                       JAY
Did you know that we beat the fuck
out of those guys and if you don't
leave him alone I'm going to do it
to you?
                                                            
                       BUSCH
Hey hey, tough guy. You need to
show a little respect to the
president and to us veterans.
                                                            
                       JAY
I didn't sign up for no sally ass
fraternity where I have to put up
with this hazing bullshit.
                                                            
                       NAP
Boy you haven't seen anything yet.
                                                            
                       REEFER
If you want to play rugby, then
you are going to have to play by
our rules. On and off the pitch.
                                                            
                       NAP
Got it Rook!
                                                            
                       ALL PLAYERS
Got it rook!
                                                            
As they surround Jay and Mick.
                                                            
                       JAY
Got it.
                                                            

25.

                       NAP
Have you ever taken Physics or
Economics?
                                                            
                       MICK
Not yet. Why?
                                                            
                       BUSCH
It is synergy my friend. You are
stronger as a group than by
yourself. If you want to be part
of the Rugby team you need to put
the team before yourself.
                                                            
                       NAP
If you two wouldn't have been so
damn jumpy, I was starting to give
you a complement. The girls in
class acted like you two were
giant killers. Remember, respect
is earned and is a privilege not
an automatic right. There is a
party tonight at the women's rugby
house. Keep up the good work. Now
let's get back to practice.
                                                            
 
INT. TREE HUGERS HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
MICK AND JAY GO OVER TO A GIRLS HOUSE HE MET
                                                            
Walking up to an old house.
                                                            
                       MICK
Why are we going over to this
girl's house?
                                                            
                       JAY
You will see. This girl is hot in
an earthy kind of way.
                                                            
                       MICK
Whatever you say.
                                                            
Mick about to knock on the door and Jay just barges into the
house.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Happy and excited)
Hey what is going on here?
                                                            
Three grunge guys are sitting around a table smoking pot.
Angel comes over to the boys from the kitchen.
                                                            

26.

                       ANGEL
Jay Jay you made it.
                                                            
Comes over and gives him a big hug and kiss.
                                                            
                       JAY
Angel this is Mick.
                                                            
                       MICK
It is nice meeting you.
                                                            
                       JAY
On the couch you have Shaggy,
Rocky, and Daily.
                                                            
Shaggy holding a water bong.
                                                            
                       SHAGGY
      (eyes barely open)
Dudes, want a hit?
                                                            
                       MICK
No thanks.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Angel)
Do you want to go to a rugby party
with us?
                                                            
                       ANGEL
Sure, but I have something that
will make it more fun.
                                                            
Angel goes to the kitchen brings out some raw vegetables.
                                                            
                       JAY
What the hell are those?
                                                            
                       ANGEL
      (Just to Jay)
They are shrooms. Want some?
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Comes over)
Whatcha eating?
                                                            
                       ANGEL
Just some veggies I'm growing.
Here.
                                                            
                       MICK
Thanks.
                                                            

27.

                       JAY
Dude, do you know what those were?
They were shrooms. We're going to
get screwed up.
                                                            
                       MICK
Thanks for the warning. I don't
feel anything?
                                                            
                       ANGEL
Just wait.
                                                            
                       SHAGGY
Dude, those things are righteous.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (to Angel)
So are you coming to the rugby
party?
                                                            
                       SHAGGY
      (excited)
Sure dude.
                                                            
                       JAY
Sorry Shag, Ruggers only.
                                                            
                       SHAGGY
I'm cool with that. I'll just
chill.
                                                            
Show Jay, Mick, and Angel walking to the Rugby house. The
streetlights are dancing as the mushrooms take effect.
                                                            
 
INT. RUGBY HOUSE - SHROOMS - NIGHT
                                                            
Jay, Mick, and Angel walk into the basement of the rugby
house. The basement has Christmas lights up (even though it
isn't Christmas). The lights really play havoc on the boys
because of the shrooms they just ate.
                                                            
                       NAP
Bout time you pansies made it.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Dazed)
We've been here. We've been
everywhere.
                                                            

28.

                       GMONEY
      (Takes double take)
Sure, whatever. Keg is in the
corner.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (dazed)
Green light, red light, sad light,
glad light, mad light.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (looking at Angel)
What the world was that stuff. Are
you feeling out of your head also?
                                                            
                       ANGEL
Yea, this is the strongest yet.
                                                            
A girl that has been eying Mick comes from around the corner
and gives him a big kiss.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Happy)
Hello, I'm Mick.
                                                            
                       APRIL
I'm April. Want to go back to my
place.
                                                            
                       MICK
Normally, I might say yes, but I
just got here and I'm with my
roommate and his girl.
                                                            
                       APRIL
I'm into girls too.
                                                            
                       MICK
Thanks, but let's just hang here
for a bit. I'm not feeling the
greatest.
                                                            
 
EXT. MEETING THE REPORTER - RUGBY PRACTICE - DAY
                                                            
While the ruggers are practicing a little nerdy reporter
comes riding up on his bike. He has on a backpack.
                                                            
                       AMISH
      (Pointing)
Look at the fresh meat coming.
                                                            

29.

                       NAP
Just concentrate on practice you
all sucked last game.
                                                            
The reporter gets closer to the pitch. Puts down his bike
and has his pen and paper in hand.
                                                            
                       NAP
You here to practice?
                                                            
                       DANIEL
Nope I'm just a reporter. Do you
mind if I interview you and a
couple of the other players?
                                                            
                       NAP
      (Pissy)
No interviews. This isn't
football. What are you with the
school paper?
                                                            
                       DANIEL
No, I'm with the magazine Cat
Call.
                                                            
                       NAP
Cat Call, why didn't you just say
so. I just rubbed on out to it
this morning. What the fuck are
you doing here?
                                                            
                       DANIEL
Well I wanted to write an article
on rugby. I've been emailing your
social chair. A mister Steve
Stoner.
                                                            
Daniel looking at notes.
                                                            
                       NAP
      (pissed)
Capt'n Tripper, his ass doesn't
tell me shit.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
Steve said it was cool if I came
out.
                                                            
                       NAP
That old drunk. He still thinks
it's the seventies.
                                                            

30.

                       DANIEL
Do you want me to leave?
                                                            
                       NAP
No, I will tell the boys your are
writing for the school paper,
because if these swinging dicks
get wind that you work for Cat
Call they will be so hard they
won't be able to run.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
Whatever you think is best.
                                                            
                       NAP
You can show up to practices,
follow us to class, and I guess
hang around the house.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
Sounds good.
                                                            
                       NAP
Don't like it too much because I
will give you only a couple of
weeks. You can learn a little
about rugby the sport and you will
learn to love it. By the end of
your time here it will be your
favorite sport. Oh, and you better
not be a distraction.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
Deal. I will be like a sponge. You
wont know that I'm here.
                                                            
                       NAP
And one other thing. I get to read
everything prior to it getting
published. Got it?
                                                            
                       DANIEL
Got it.
                                                            
                       NAP
OK listen up ruggers. This is
Danielle.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
It's Daniel.
                                                            

31.

                       NAP
Danielle is going to be writing an
article about rugby in our school
paper. Don't give him anything
negative to write about.
                                                            
                       REEFER
      (Jokingly)
Then he should leave now.
                                                            
Everyone laughs.
                                                            
                       NAP
We are having a party tonight and
you're the guest of honor. Ruggers
you will be on your best behavior.
Oh, I almost forgot. Don't forget
about the pub-crawl this weekend.
Rooks go buy dresses and meet at
810 bookstore on the strip at noon

INT. MICK WALKS IN ON JAY AND MELODY - DAY
                                                            
Mick walks down the dorm hall coming back from class. As he
opens the door he sees Jay on top of Melody having sex.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Embarrassed)
You have to lock the door Jay.
                                                            
Mick shuts the door. Jay starts laughing because he knows
how embarrassed Mick is for seeing Melody naked. Melody
covers up. Jay with his best southern fake accent.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Southern)
You have to shut the door Jay.
That was great.
                                                            

32.

                       MELODY
I didn't think it was so great.
                                                            
                       JAY
That's not what you said last
night.
                                                            
 
INT. DORM - MICK WALKS IN ON AMISH AND CHRISTIE - NIGHT
                                                            
Later that night after another rugby party, Mick comes back
to the dorm. He opens the door and sees Amish on the floor
going down on Christy.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Little
       embarrassed a
       little pissed)
Dang guys you have to lock the
door. And was that my comforter
that you were using for a cover?
                                                            
Mick opens the door and turns the light back on.
                                                            
Hear Jay and Melody giggling in the bed.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Laughing)
He's going to town on her Jay!
                                                            
                       CHRISTIE
Mick turn the light off!
                                                            
Mick turns the light off and then right back on. Amish is
under the cover not missing a beat.
                                                            
                       MICK
He's really going to town.
                                                            
                       JAY
Let 'em go.
                                                            
Mick goes to sleep in his twin bed with the lights off.
                                                            
                       MICK
Dude, I have to have my comforter
back. My grandma made it. You can
mess with one of Jay's extra
sheets.
                                                            
After about twenty seconds of hearing Amish and Christie
messing around. Christie starts to talk.
                                                            

33.

                       CHRISTIE
Amish, I'm not having sex with
you.
                                                            
                       AMISH
Why not?
                                                            
                       CHRISTIE
Because you don't love me.
                                                            
After a ten second pause.
                                                            
                       AMISH
      (Trying to be
       sincere, but
       totally full of
       shit)
Christie, I love you.
                                                            
Mick, Jay, and Melody start laughing.
                                                            
 
INT. NEXT DAY MICK AND JAY BACK AT THE DORM - DAY
                                                            
                       JAY
Dorm life sucks.
                                                            
                       MICK
I agree, I walked in on people
doing it the last two nights.
Let's move out.
                                                            
                       JAY
But how and where?
                                                            
                       MICK
I read that since we both have
sophomore status we are not
obligated to live in the dorm.
                                                            
                       JAY
Sweet, but where and why have we
been living in this shit hole.
                                                            
                       MICK
A buddy of mine from back home has
an apartment over next to the
strip and closer to campus. He is
looking for roommates.
                                                            
                       JAY
Is he cool or is he like you?
                                                            

34.

                       MICK
Funny. No he is OK he plays soccer
for the school.
                                                            
                       JAY
Soccer, is he gay?
                                                            
                       MICK
No he has a girlfriend.
                                                            
                       JAY
Probably a cover.
                                                            
                       MICK
Do you want to see the place?
                                                            
                       JAY
Sure, but if he is anything like
Nate I'm going to go ape shit
on your ass.

                       MICK
This is nice.
                                                            
Tim shows the boys the first two rooms.
                                                            
                       JAY
Hell Yea. When can we move in?
This beats the snot out of
the dorms.
                                                            
                       TIM

INT. AT THE APARTMENT PREPARING FOR RUGBY CRAWL - DAY
                                                            
                       JAY
I'm not wearing no fag dress. I
didn't believe the guys when they
said to wear a dress to the strip.
It is probably rookie hazing. That
Nap is so full of shit.
                                                            
                       MICK
Na, I met a rugger last night and
he told me to wear one also. Let's
go to the thrift store and get us
some doozies just in case they
weren't BSing us.
                                                            
                       JAY
Good idea.

EXT. PUB CRAWL - DAY
                                                            
All the ruggers are outside the 810 bookstore on the strip
hooping and hollering at each other walking up. Each guy is
dressed more perverted than the next. The boys walk up close
to the end. About 30 guys all are in dresses. Some have
makeup, jewelry, and wigs on. Daniel is there taking it all
in and scribbles in his notebook with a look of disbelief
and snaps a few photos.
                                                            
                       NAP
      (Pissed - dressed
       as girl also)
'Bout time you ladies showed up.
Listen up, here are the rules.
                                                            
                       ASTRO
You have to give Nap a lap dance
when we are done.
                                                            
Players laugh.
                                                            
                       NAP
      (Shouting
       Instructions to
       Ruggers)
Cut the shit and listen you fucks.
OK, we sing the national anthem
and then it is off to the bars
where you have to chug a beer and
run to the next bar. Make sure you
pay for the drinks and use the
trashcans if you have to throw up.
It goes Good Times, McCarthy's,
American Tap, Rusty's,
Shenanigans, Moose Lounge,
Scotties, Earnies, Pete Hines, and
finally ends at Sidekicks.
                                                            
                       BULLWINKLE
      (Amazed)
That's ten bars.
                                                            

37.

                       CAPTAIN TRIPPER
Glad you can count. Let's see if
you can hold your liqueur.
                                                            
                       NAP
Quiet. Now, no cheating and the
first one to finish at Sidekicks
is the winner. Any questions?
                                                            
                       JAY
What does the winner get?
                                                            
                       NAP
A belly full of beer and bragging
rights for a year! Any other
questions?
                                                            
                       REEFER
      (Singing)
Oh say can you see
                                                            
                       ALL PLAYERS
      (Continue Star
       Spangled Banner)
                                                            
About a quarter of the way through the group starts creeping
forward, fighting for position. About half way through Nap
takes off running and the group follows as they continue to
sing.
                                                            
Song playing in the background as the guys are running down
the street with dresses a flying.

In the first bar, MICK and JAY see TIM having a beer with
his parents who are visiting for the weekend. They are
sitting at a table with a pitcher of beer. Mick and Jay take
their beer pints. Tim's dad grabs Mick's arm.
                                                            
                       MR. JENNINGS
      (pissed)
Just what the hell are you doing?
                                                            
Mick gives Tim a please explain it's OK look.
                                                            
                       TIM
Dad its OK, they are my roommates.
                                                            
Mick and Jay chug their beers while all the other ruggers
are waiting to be served by the bartender.
                                                            
                       MICK
Thanks, we will pay you back
later.
                                                            

38.

                       JAY
      (Giving her a wink
       as they bolt out
       the door.)
Nice meeting you Mrs. Jennings.
                                                            
The other ruggers look pissed that the boys are getting out
of the bar first. NAP is right in back of them because he
was first to get served at the bar.
                                                            
                       NAP
      (right behind the
       boys)
Nice move boys, but you better
have more tricks up your sleeves
than that.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (running)
We will keep them coming.
                                                            
Show the boys running to the next bar down the strip.
Spectators are staring in amazement, pointing, and taking
pictures.
                                                            
Fast paced music in the background. They continue down the
street bar after bar after bar. They can see ruggers puking
in trashcans as they leave the bars. NAP, MICK, and JAY
exchange leads through out the pub-crawl. They finally get
to Sidekicks where the entire women's rugby team is waiting
there cheering them on. Most of them are wearing revealing
clothes, as they like to do.

Nap is barely in front of Mick and Jay. Sidekicks has beers
lined up on the bar waiting for the boys.
                                                            
                       NAP
      (Grabbing the beer
       and chugging.)
What the fuck?
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Looking at beer)
What is in here?
                                                            
Jay, Not saying a word downs the beer.
                                                            
                       LILLEY
Nap you grabbed the wrong one. Jay
Jay got yours.
                                                            

39.

                       JAY
      (As he throws the
       cup away)
Smooooth
                                                            
Mick and Nap proceed to the trashcan where they throw up.
                                                            
                       LILLEY
Sorry sweetie. I put a shot of
gin in each one but the one you
were supposed to drink.
                                                            
                       NAP
At least I get to see the other
guys suffer.
                                                            
The other players come in and are throwing up after
finishing. Daniel is there taking it all in and jotting down
notes.
                                                            
 
EXT. NEXT DAY AT PRACTICE - DAY
                                                            
                       NAP
      (To Mick and Jay)
You two have been practicing your
tales off the last couple of
weeks. Keep it up and you may get
to play in the couple of years.
                                                            
                       JAY
Couple of years my ass!
                                                            
                       MICK
Settle down big boy.
                                                            
                       JAY
Either one of us is better than
half the frik'n team.
                                                            
                       NAP
Don't be disappointed tonight at
the bar is all I'm saying.
                                                            
                       JAY
Oh. We have just been busting our
tails for last few weeks and we
get to ride the pine or be B side
wack offs?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN TRIPPER
I was the captain of the B-side
wacko... I mean B-side last year.

What are they doing in there gang
banging?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN TRIPPER
No, Nap, Keefer, and Nitro are
making out the starting line-up.
                                                            
The ruggers are eating pizza and downing beers trying to
sober up for the next day. The anticipation of the lineup
fills the air.
                                                            
                       BULLWINKLE
Here they come!
                                                            
                       NAP
All right, as you all are aware we
have our first game tomorrow. Here
are the starting lineups. Go home
and get some sleep.
                                                            
He posts a big sheet of cardboard next to the bar. Mick,
Jay, and the rest of the guys look at the lineup.
                                                            
                       BUSCH
Yah right who needs sleep?
                                                            
                       JAY
Who the hell is Big Bird?
                                                            
                       BULLWINKLE

yard and down the street.

The players follow Mick. Mick runs down the street and sees
a sorority house. He runs in and girls start screaming. He
pokes his head in a room.
                                                            
                       MICK
How are we doing? It got hot
tonight.
                                                            
Mick runs back out of the sorority house and the team is
waiting outside. With his shorts over his privates he goes
over to the main street and puts his thumb out to oncoming
traffic. The players just laugh in half amazement that Mick
came out of his shell.

                       MICK

                       WMU PLAYER
      (To Nap)
Time for spoons.

Nap who is yours?
                                                            
                       NAP
      (Looks at
       Bullwinkle)
Bullwinkle, you're the man.
                                                            
They proceed to play spoons. Both rookies put metal
tablespoons in their mouths. They are sitting facing one
another. Cockroach puts his head down and Bullwinkle hit him
on the head with his spoon. Not very hard, but everyone
yells like it was a hell of a hit.
                                                            
                       NAP
Good one ole boy. Now put your
head down and it is Cockroaches
turn.
                                                            
With Bullwinkle's head down Nap hits him on the head with a
ladle. Everyone says that it wasn't much of a hit, but it
nearly knocks Bullwinkle out.
                                                            
                       REEFER
That wasn't shit Bullwinkle. You
hit him twice as hard.
                                                            
                       NAP
You better not give up. We have a
keg of beer riding on this.
                                                            

49.

Bullwinkle hit Cockroach again weakly. Everyones screams in
pain. Cockroach rubs his head like it hurts, but can barely
feel it.
                                                            
                       NAP
You are going to knock him out
with that kind of hit.
                                                            
Bullwinkle put his head down and Reefer hits him with a
ladle. Bullwinkle goes to the floor, but get back up rubbing
his head. This goes on for a couple of more rounds.
                                                            
                       MICK

      (To JJ and Mick)
They are going to kill your guy.

                       ANN
He looks like a nice guy.
                                                            
                       JODI
He's cute.
                                                            

54.

                       JAY
      (Waves Mick over)
He's the best. Hey Mick, come over
hear. Have you met the ladies?
                                                            
                       MICK
No, I haven't. I'm Mick.
                                                            
                       ANN
I'm Ann. This is Jodi.
                                                            
                       BUSCH
      (Slides between
       Mick and Ann.)
I'm from McHenry and I'm a history
major. I'm one of few rugby
players you guys can trust. Trust
me I will help you out. You girls
come here often.
                                                            
Mick moves to the background and talks with other ruggers.
Ann looks disappointed as Busch keeps rambling on.
                                                            
                       SLAUGHTER
I live here dumbass.
                                                            
Show Ann taking off her top shirt in order to reveal her
killer figure.
                                                            
                       ANN
We will save it for you.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (To Ann - giving a
       wink)
I'm going to see what's going on
upstairs. You girls save this spot
for me.
                                                            
                       ANN
      (As Mick walks
       upstairs)
We will be waiting.
                                                            
                       JODI
I thought you had a headache?
                                                            
                       ANN
      (Smiling in Mick's
       direction)
For some reason it is gone.

INT. MICK UPSTAIRS AT RUGBY PARTY - NIGHT
                                                            
Mick finds some guys playing quarters on the living room
coffee table.
                                                            
                       BECKER
We need another sucker player.
Wait first grab some canolies from
the kitchen table.
                                                            
                       MICK
Funny. I'll show you boys how it
is done.
                                                            
Mick grabs some food off of the kitchen table.
                                                            
                       ROSCOE
Rook, what is your nickname?
                                                            
                       MICK
I don't think I have one.
                                                            
                       GMONEY
Your new nickname is Cannoli.
                                                            
                       MICK
Cannoli?
                                                            
                       BUSCH
How do you think I got Busch as a
nickname? I wore a Busch Beer
shirt the first day of practice.
Little did I know it labeled me
for life.
                                                            
                       MICK
Move over. I used to be the master
of this game.
                                                            
                       BECKER
Bring it on Cannoli.
                                                            
A couple of rounds are played. Mick looses a few times. Ann,
Jodi, and Holly come from outside the house to inside the
house.
                                                            
                       BUSCH
Cannoli, why aren't you downstairs
with the girls?
                                                            

56.

                       MICK
They are out of my league and
besides I enjoy kicking your butt
in quarters.
                                                            
                       ANN
      (Walking past -
       playfully)
We couldn't save your spot all
night.
                                                            
                       MICK
Sorry ladies. Anyway you looked
like you had more company than you
needed or wanted.
                                                            
Ann walks away.
                                                            
                       JODI
      (In Mick's ear)
I think you should talk with my
roommate.
                                                            
                       MICK
You're joking?
                                                            
Jodi shakes her head as if saying no joke.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (As he gets up to
       catch up to Ann)
Game boys.
                                                            
Mick jumps off the seat, hits a quarter in the drink, and
chases down Ann. He meets her on the landing halfway down
the stairs.
                                                            
                       MICK
Ann, wait up.
                                                            
                       ANN
I thought you left the party?
                                                            
                       MICK
No, I just wanted a change of
scenery.
                                                            
                       ANN
Oh, is that how it is.
                                                            
                       MICK
I didn't mean it that way. It
looked like you had enough
attention. Are you having a good

                       MICK (cont'd)
time?
                                                            
                       ANN
Well, we were bored until we saw
you guys. What about you?
                                                            
                       MICK
It's ok. How's school going?
                                                            
                       ANN
Not bad I'm in pre-law.
                                                            
                       MICK
Ah, a future lawyer.
                                                            
                       ANN
Maybe. You never know.
                                                            
                       MICK
I'm from St. Louis, where are you
from?
                                                            
                       ANN
Central Missouri.
                                                            
                       MICK
When is your birthday?
                                                            
                       ANN
March 18th.
                                                            
                       MICK
No kidding, mine is March 19th. I
think that is a sign.
                                                            
                       ANN
What you were going to keep asking
questions until we had something
in common?
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Moving closer to
       Ann)
All evening if I had to.
                                                            
Some ruggers come from downstairs. Mick puts his hand on the
wall between Ann and the guys.
                                                            
                       MICK
Do you mind if I kiss you?
                                                            

58.

                       ANN
I usually don't kiss guys I just
meet.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Sarcastically)
But all we have been through?
                                                            
Mick leans in and Ann gives him a peck.
                                                            
                       MICK
See that wasn't so bad.
                                                            
                       ANN
It was nice. You're sweet.
                                                            
                       MICK
Can I call you?
                                                            
                       ANN
Sure, do you have a pen?
                                                            
                       MICK
No, but I bet the girls do.
                                                            
They move upstairs to the kitchen. Mick grabs a pen.
                                                            
                       ANN
Paper?
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Holding out hand)
Here.
                                                            
                       JODI
Ann we better get going.
                                                            
                       ANN
You won't call you're a rugby
player.
                                                            
                       MICK
You'll see.
                                                            
Ann and her roommates walk back to their apartment. Mick
calls her on his cell.
                                                            
                       ANN
      (On answering
       machine)
This is 555-1464 please leave a
message.
                                                            

59.

                       MICK
Hey Ann this is Mick. I was just
checking to see if you made it
home. Give me a call when you get
a chance 555-0258. Talk with you
later.
                                                            
                       JAY
You're ass is whipped already.
                                                            
                       MICK
No, but she's cool.
                                                            
 
EXT. RUGBY PRACTICE - DAY
                                                            
                       AMISH
Mick, why are you so happy?
                                                            
                       MICK
Well, I met the girl of my dreams
last night.
                                                            
                       AMISH
      (jokingly)
Are you sure it wasn't Bullwinkle.
You were pretty wasted.
                                                            
                       VANCE
      (acting like a
       basketball player)
Oh, here was Canoli on the landing
last night. Motions like he is
boxing out for a rebound in
basketball. With moves like those
he should be playing basketball
instead of Rugby.
                                                            
                       AMISH
I haven't seen a guy so guarded
against other guys since my sister
was in high school and I was the
guard.
                                                            
                       JAY
If you worked half as hard at
Rugby as you did keeping
other guys away from that
girl you would be an All-
American.
                                                            

60.

                       AMISH
She was hot. Not like the dogs you
usually leash. What's
her name and ah number?
                                                            
                       MICK
Her name is Ann and 1-800 eat-shit
is her number. She is
Way out of my league so
that makes her out of your world.
We just kissed anyway. I
doubt I get to see her again.
                                                            
 
INT. THAT WEEKS GAME. - DAY
                                                            
MICK
On the phone calls Ann.
                                                            
                       ANN
Hello
                                                            
                       MICK
Hey what's up?
                                                            
                       ANN
Nothing.
                                                            
                       MICK
Hey, my parents are coming into
town today and I would like for
you to meet them.
                                                            
                       ANN
I have to work.
                                                            
                       MICK
Oh shoot.
                                                            
                       ANN
Oh well, tell them I said hi. Are
they coming to your game?
                                                            
                       MICK
Yah, they will be in for a shock.
They were used to seeing me play
football, but this is a totally
different game.
                                                            
                       ANN
Totally.
                                                            

61.

                       MICK
Are you mocking me?
                                                            
                       ANN
No, just playing.
                                                            
                       MICK
Cool.
                                                            
                       ANN
Are you mocking Kool?
                                                            
                       MICK
The Bagel man? Player.
                                                            
                       ANN
You're the player.
                                                            
                       MICK
When can I see you again?
                                                            
                       ANN
Better question, when can you fit
me into your schedule?
                                                            
Smiling. Still a very friendly flirty conversation
                                                            
                       MICK
Whatever. I'll give you a call.
                                                            
                       ANN
Sure you will.
                                                            
She hangs up the phone.
                                                            
                       ANN
      (To self)
How did I get roped by a rugger?
                                                            
 
EXT. WALKING HOME FROM CLASS – NERD REVENGE - DAY
                                                            
Mick sees the same little nerdy kid getting picked on by the
same three Hispanic kids. They are again playing keep away
with his backpack. Mick walks up and snags the backpack out
of mid air and hands it to the little student.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Determined)
OK boys, now how about you pick on
someone your own size!
                                                            

62.

                       HISPANIC 4
We were just playing man.
                                                            
                       MICK
How about you play with me!?
                                                            
                       HISPANIC 3
Let's get going.
                                                            
Mick follows the boys as they are trying to walk fast away.
                                                            
                       MICK
What's the matter; you don't have
a problem picking on him how about
me? Common let's go. That's what I
thought. If I see you guys
harassing him again there is going
to be trouble.
                                                            
As the boys leave, Mick takes a deep breathe.
                                                            
 
EXT. RUGBY GAME - MICK’S PARENTS COME TO VISIT. - DAY
                                                            
The guys are stretching on the side getting ready for the
game. Up come Mick's parents to watch the game.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Happy)
Hey, what are you guys doing here!
                                                            
                       MICK'S MOM
Just come to watch you play.
                                                            
They give each other a hug. Mick shakes his dad's hand.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (excited to see
       them)
Glad to see you guys. This is Jay.
You have talked with him just as
much as me almost.
                                                            
                       JAY
Nice to finally meet you. This is
my girlfriend Melody.
                                                            
Melody also shakes their hand.
                                                            
                       MELODY
I've got to go study. See you guys
later.
                                                            

63.

                       MICK
Are you guys spending the night?
                                                            
                       LAVERNE MITCHELL
No, we probably will watch the
game, grab some dinner and head
home.
                                                            
                       JAY
We are going to have a killer
party tonight you guys should
stay.
                                                            
Another girl walks up. Jay gives her a big hug.
                                                            
                       JAY
Mr. and Ms. Mitchell I would like
you to meet my girlfriend Angel.
                                                            
Gives them a little wink.
                                                            
                       MICK'S MOM
Nice to meet you.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Angel)
We'll see you after the game ok
sugar.
                                                            
Angel walks off.
                                                            
                       LAVERNE MITCHELL
Looks like you have your hands
full Jay.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (Big smile)
You still need to meet Tara my
female rugger girlfriend.
                                                            
                       MICK
Well we will see you in a bit. I
need to get ready for the game.
                                                            
                       LAVERNE MITCHELL
Talk with you soon. Good luck.
                                                            
                       MICK'S MOM
      (They hug)
Love you. Be safe.
                                                            
                       MICK
Will do.
                                                            

64.

The boys circle up to stretch.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (To Jay)
Do you think Ann will show up for
the game today? I called her to
remind her.
                                                            
                       JAY
First of all you are trying too
hard. If she likes you she will
come, if not you always have your
hand.
                                                            
                       MICK
Funny.
                                                            
                       JAY
Trust me she wants a challenge.
All girls want what they can't
have and ruggers are the hardest
horse to lasso.
                                                            
                       MICK
Ann just seems different. You know
special.
                                                            
                       JAY
College girls are looking to have
fun. They aren't thinking long
term. They are here to cut loose
and have a good time.
                                                            
Various rugby plays with music overview. Show Mick's mom
grimacing as she is introduced to the rough sport of rugby.
Show the other team scoring a couple of trys. The home team
looses by a try.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (Walking up to
       parents.)
So what do you think? Intense ah?
                                                            
Jay comes walking up with Tara around his arm.
                                                            
                       JAY
Mr. and Ms. Mitchell I would like
to introduce you to my girlfriend
Tara.
                                                            
                       MICK'S MOM
      (Smiling)
It's nice to meet you Tara.
                                                            

65.

                       TARA
It's my pleasure. Mick is a great
guy. Especially for putting up
with this big lug.
                                                            
Playfully hit Jay in the chest.
                                                            
Just as they are talking they see a guy from the other team
running across the rugby pitch naked. You can only see his
butt as he runs away.
                                                            
                       MICK'S MOM
You haven't did that have you?
                                                            
                       MICK
No mom, I've only played a couple
of games. I'll make sure I tell
you when I do.
                                                            
                       LAVERNE MITCHELL
What the heck was that all about?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN TRIPPER
      (Overhearing)
Tradition man. Tradition.
                                                            
                       MICK
Evidently when you score your
first try you have to get naked
and do a Zulu warrior dance.
                                                            
                       MICK'S MOM
That's all right. Something's moms
don't need to know.
                                                            
                       MICK
Let's go grab some food.
                                                            
                       LAVERNE MITCHELL
Sounds good.
                                                            
 
INT. CAMPUS BOOKSTORE - DAY
                                                            
Mick is walking past the bookstore and sees Ann working
there. Mick has a black eye from the last game.
                                                            
                       MICK
Hey stranger!
                                                            
                       ANN

66.

                       ANN (cont'd)
Hey how are you?

What happened to you??
                                                            
                       MICK
It's from rugby match against
SIUE. I got to start but we lost.
                                                            
                       ANN
      (Sarcastically
       Smiling.)
It looks like you lost.
                                                            
                       MICK
Funny. Hey do you want to do
something next weekend?
                                                            
                       ANN
No, I'm going home that weekend.
What about this weekend?
                                                            
                       MICK
I have a rugby road trip.
                                                            
                       ANN
Oh – that sounds interesting. Like
the movie?
                                                            
                       MICK
Oh you know I'm the nice rugby
player remember.
                                                            
                       ANN
      (Looking like it
       means nothing to
       her.)
Sure you are. Have a good time.
                                                            
                       MICK
Hey we will get together soon, I
promise.
                                                            
                       ANN
It sure doesn't seem that you have
the time. You seem pretty busy.
                                                            
                       MICK
I promise the next time you have a

Who me?
                                                            
                       MS. T
Rugby players are trouble.
                                                            
                       ANN
All of them?
                                                            
                       MS. T
He plays rugby right? Well then
that boy is trouble.
                                                            
                       ANN
But he says he is the nice rugby
player.
                                                            
                       MS. T
Girl, I've seen them come and go
And they are all trouble. I've
seen more Girls get their hearts
broke by rugby players than all
the fraternities combined
                                                            
                       ANN
I know, but there is something
about him.
                                                            
                       MS. T
You know what it is?
                                                            
                       ANN
No, what?
                                                            
                       MS. T
All girls want what they can't
have my dear.

                       JAY
Screw you.
                                                            
                       AMISH
Rook, don't make me get everyone
over here to help me disrobe you.
It's tradition.
                                                            
Jay, Mick, and the other rookies reluctantly take off their
clothes.
                                                            
                       BUSCH
This game is called naked rookie
beer chug. The rules are simple.
Everyone fills their cup with
beer. The first one that chugs the
beer gets to put their clothes
back on.
                                                            
                       JAY
Sounds like I will only be in one
round.
                                                            
                       MICK
Bring it on.
                                                            
                       BUSCH
Get on your mark. Get set. Go!
                                                            
Fifteen naked rookie ruggers slam their beers. Jay gets done
first.
                                                            
                       JAY
Done.
                                                            
Mick finishes a little after Jay.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN TRIPPER
We have a tie. No one gets out.
                                                            
                       JAY
My ass.
                                                            

69.

                       AMISH
      (Finishing Jay's
       sentence)
..is still hanging out. It was a
tie.
                                                            
                       BUSCH
Rooks fill up your cups!
                                                            
Melody and Christie walk up.
                                                            
                       MELODY
Jay get your clothes back on.
                                                            
                       JAY
I'm playing a game. I should have
been out already, but the Capt'n
is blind as a bat.
                                                            
Daniel also walks up and takes down notes.
                                                            
                       CHRISTIE
Duh. Bats can't see.
                                                            
                       JAY
That is the point blondie.
                                                            
                       SCORN
What can I do to make my boyfriend
get out of the chug. He has had
too much already.
                                                            
                       BUSCH
There is nothing you can do missy.
Step aside.
                                                            
                       SCORN
What if I do this?
                                                            
She drops to her knees in front of her boyfriend. You just
see the back of her head.
                                                            
                       BUSCH
That will work. When you are done
you are out. Fill up your cups
rooks.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN TRIPPER
Looks like he is the winner of
this round.
                                                            
Up walks Ann and her friends. She sees Mick and the other
rookies during the game.
                                                            

70.

                       ANN
      (Sarcastically)
Nice.
                                                            
Pissed, Ann walks off.
                                                            
                       MICK
Ann wait.
                                                            
Chasing Ann with shorts held over privates.
                                                            
                       ANN
I thought you were the
self-proclaimed "nice" ruger. Your
just like the other jerks!
                                                            
                       MICK
It's tradition according to
Captain Tripper.
                                                            
                       ANN
Great, you get your direction in
life from a guy named Captain
Tripper.
                                                            
                       MICK
Well he is the oldest here by like
20 years. I didn't know I was
going to be on the entertainment
list.
                                                            
                       ANN
Why did you invite me here if you
were just going to embarrass me?
What kind of girl do you think I
am?
                                                            
Ann sort of smiles but is still pissed.
                                                            
                       ANN
Oh, sorry excuse. We're leaving.
                                                            
 
EXT. BACK AT THE RUGBY PARTY - NIGHT
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN TRIPPER
Next game is called flam'n anus!
                                                            
                       BULLWINKLE
      (Confused)
Why is it called flaming anus?
                                                            

71.

                       REEFER
You'll find out big boy.
                                                            
                       REEFER
OK, stay naked. The SMU rook
Bullwinkle is against the EMU rook
for the bar bill tonight. You have
to put this four foot piece of TP
between your butt cheeks and
Tripper and Nitro are going to
light them on fire at the same
time. Whoever keeps the fire going
the longest wins that round. The
overall winner will be the best
three out of five. Any questions?
                                                            
Two people raise their hands.
                                                            
                       REEFER
      (Acting like he
       didn't see them.)
Good, let's proceed.
                                                            
The game proceeds with Tripper and Nitro lighting the TP.
The fire roars up the legs of the rookies. The party breaks
out in laughter as the rooks slap their butts to get the
fire out. Finally they grab the TP and throw it to the
ground.
                                                            
                       BULLWINKLE

Players are in a circle stretching. Most are hung over.

                       CAPTAIN TRIPPER
      (Looking at Daniel)
For now on you are called Scribe.
                                                            
                       BULLWINKLE
Why?
                                                            
                       AMISH
Bullwinkle, why are you such a
dumb ass?

                       MICK
This place is happening tonight.
                                                            
                       JAY
Yea, I hope Melody doesn't come
here because the only thing hotter
than me is that girl over there.
Excuse me partner I'll be right
back.
                                                            
Points to a hot girl and goes over to talk with her.
                                                            
Mick sees a guy with a rugger hat on that he has never seen
before.
                                                            
                       MICK
Hey you play rugby?
                                                            
                       BERTLES
Yea, what's it to you?
                                                            
                       MICK
Because I play rugby and I never
seen you before.
                                                            
                       BERTLES
Well that means I can where this
hat and you can't because if you
are telling the truth about

73.

                       BERTLES (cont'd)
playing then you are a Rook
because I played last year and
just moved back this semester.
                                                            
                       MICK
What's presidents name?
                                                            
                       BERTLES
The president of the schools,
America, or your moms PTA group?
                                                            
Mick looking like he is about to pound this guy.
                                                            
                       BERTLES
Is that short dictating SOB NAP
still running the show? What's
your name Rook?
                                                            
                       MICK
Mick – and how do you know that I
play rugby and I'm not lying?
                                                            
                       BERTLES
My names Mick!
                                                            
Kisses Mick on the lips like they are long lost buddies.
Mick wipes it off in disgust.
                                                            
                       MICK
Dude!
                                                            
                       BERTLES
Because only a rugger would have
the balls to ask someone to take
off a rugby hat.
                                                            
Mick sees Ann across the room shoot him an evil look and
walks away.
                                                            
                       MICK
Ann. (beat) Dang.
                                                            
                       BERTLES
She's not worth it.
                                                            
                       MICK
Pub Crawl? Nap mentioned something
but I thought he was full of shit
again.
                                                            
                       BERTLES
See you at the bookstore.
                                                            

74.

Looks back with questioned face.
                                                            
                       MICK
      (To Ann)
Hold on that wasn't what it looked
like. He kissed me. That's
something I never thought I would
say.
                                                            
Grabs her arm.
                                                            
                       MICK
Please Hold up.
                                                            
                       ANN
You just are not the guy I thought
met a couple of weeks ago.
                                                            
                       MICK
Because a dude kissed me? He's a
rugger.
                                                            
                       ANN
No because, just because of
everything.
                                                            
                       MICK
How about I take you to the movies
tomorrow night?
                                                            
                       ANN
What makes you think I want to go
on a date with you?
                                                            
                       MICK
We can go over our birthday plans.
                                                            
                       ANN
Our birthdays are not for another
five months.
                                                            
                       MICK
It is because I plan on still
being around in five months.
                                                            
Ann smiles.
                                                            
                       MICK
And to see you smile.
                                                            

75.

                       ANN
My girlfriends warned me about the
Rugby guy's charm and their evil
ways.
                                                            
                       MICK
We all have our devilish moments.
Can I get you a bagel?
                                                            
                       ANN
Sure
                                                            
Mick points to Kool the Bagel Man.
                                                            
                       MICK
Hey Kool, two with everything.
                                                            
                       KOOL
Cool, How are you kids doing

                       JAY
Nothing Amish what's up with you?
                                                            
AMISH looking like he is playing with himself.
                                                            
                       AMISH
Been here long enough to grab some
ass, that Chicks tit, and dick rub
on the waitress.
                                                            

76.

                       JAY

                       CHANCELLOR PRULEDGE
      (Picks up phone)

                       SECURITY JIM
Sir, what they do this time?
                                                            
                       CHANCELLOR PRULEDGE

They even mentioned my school.
They've tarnished our schools
Reputation!
                                                            
                       SECURITY JIM

                       SECURITY SAM
No
                                                            
                       AMISH
Captn Tripper?
                                                            
Look at Tripper passed out on the couch. Beer cans all

                       SECURITY JIM
No, are any of the responsible
guys here?
                                                            
                       NAP
Nap is taking a dump and will be
out in a minute.
                                                            
                       NAP
Amish who the fuck is at the door?
                                                            
                       AMISH
He was probably wacking it to the
new Cat Call that is out. Did you
guys see the article?
                                                            
                       SECURITY JIM
That is why we are here. We are
kicking the entire team off
campus.
                                                            
                       AMISH
Cool. We don't have to go to
class.
                                                            
                       SECURITY JIM
Not only class, but you can't play
rugby either.
                                                            
Nap comes around the corner with a Cat Call in this hand. He
sees the Security guards.

anymore.
                                                            
                       SECURITY JIM
It's not just me Nap it's the
Chancellor. He read the Cat Call
article and he's pissed.

helpful.

       dime)
Shut the fuck up assholes I'm on
the phone. Hello Ms. Adams can I
speak with Chancellor Pruledge
please.
                                                            
Rugby players are good bullshitters and can change character
and put on charm like the best salesmen.
                                                            
                       REBECCA
Nap, cut the crap the Chancellor
is pissed and probably doesn't
want to talk with you.
                                                            
                       NAP
Ms. Adams. I was just seeing if I
could take you and Him out to
lunch to discuss this recent
misfortune.

Yea, a big baby.
                                                            
SMU receives the kick-off again. Jay receives the kick this
time. He passes it back to Bertels who is run out of
bounds. Side out to the other team is called. The opponents
hooker throws it into the line. You have the prop
(Bertles), then second row (Busch), then prop (Bullwinkle),
then second row (Jay), then the hooker (G-Money), and
finally the other wing forward (Mick) at the end. The wing
forward throws it into the second row (second player in
line.) The props grab the second row by the pants (from both
sides) and lift the second row into the air. The opponents
grab the ball and quickly pass it out to the fast players in
a row. The ball gets to the middle of the line and they do a
scissors pass (zig zag). The player rushes into the try zone
for a try.
                                                            
                       NAP
Okay, let's get our heads out of
our asses and play.
                                                            
Nap kicks off to the other team. A big burly guy grabs the
ball. He passes it backwards and the other guy knocks the
ball sideways.
                                                            
                       REFEREE 3
      (blows whistle)
Knock-on.
                                                            
Both teams line up for a scrum and it is SMU's place in.
                                                            
                       MICK
OK, front row show your power.
                                                            
                       BERTLES
We'll do.
                                                            
The front rows engage in the scrum. G-Money taps Bertles
side signaling Nap to roll in the ball. G-Money hooks the
ball back to the end. Nap runs back and picks up the ball.
He quickly tosses the ball back to Nitro, to Amish, to the
twins for another try.

Show the boys winning the game and walking over to the
sidelines. They look exhausted, dirty, and some are bloody.

                       NAP
Nice game fellas. We have another
game this afternoon. Get some
rest.
                                                            
                       JAY
I'm going to be so freakin' stiff
in two hours.
                                                            
                       MICK
What do you want to do until the
next match?
                                                            
                       JAY
Sit back and drink a couple of
beers.
                                                            
                       MICK
That will keep us loosened up for
sure.
                                                            
 
EXT. SECOND GAME OF TOURNEYMENT - DAY
                                                            
Game is already started in mid action. The boys are taking a
line out from the sideline.
                                                            
                       JAY
Ok, on this lineout get me as high
as you can. You can out muscle
these Sally's.
                                                            
                       BERTLES
You got it Jay-Jay.
                                                            
                       BULLWINKLE
We're going to yank your pants up
so hard your grandkids are going
to feel it.
                                                            
                       JAY
I wouldn't go to that extreme.
Let's just win this line out.
                                                            
                       GMONEY
Blue, Gray, Your sister likes to
roll in the hay.
                                                            
He throws the ball high in the air in Jay's direction.
Bertels and Bullwinkle grab Jay and lift him in the air as
he jumps. He grabs the ball about twelve feet in the air and
forms a ruck. Nap grabs the ball from him and tosses it out
to the other backs. The ball gets out to the speedy Schmidt

twins and one of them takes the ball close to the try zone.
An opponent has the angle on Schmidt and slows him down by
grabbing his jersey. Jay is hustling behind and gets the
ball from Schmidt. Mick comes in and rucks over Jay and the
other team. He lands on the try zone line for a try. Mick
looks back as Jay punches another player in the face.
                                                            
                       MICK
Oh shit!
                                                            
                       JAY
You want to go?!
                                                            
                       2ND PROP
Is that all you got pretty boy.
                                                            
                       JAY
No I got this too.
                                                            
Jay in his patented move takes his left arm and sweeps over
the props head and brings the right fist after it.
Mick tackles another opponent about ready to cheap shot Jay.
                                                            
                       MICK
I got your back.
                                                            
The teams start a little fight and are broken up by the
referee's loud long whistle.
                                                            
                       JAY
That's the game fellas. We won.
See boys you wasted time long
enough for us to win. See you at
the party.
                                                            
The players all jump in excitement on their second round
victory.
                                                            
 
INT. BAR AT SOULARD AFTER SECOND ROUND VICTORY - NIGHT
                                                            
The boys are giving high fives to one another after a long
hard fought victory. Of course they all have come to the bar
straight from the pitch. They are dirty and bloody but they
are ready to celebrate. The other teams are also at the bar
and ready for good time. The teams fight on the field but
get along like brothers at the social drinking events.
                                                            
                       MICK
Great game guys let's drink some
beers.
                                                            

96.

                       JAY
Congrats on your hard-nosed play
and your try.
                                                            
                       MICK
Thanks ole boy.
                                                            
                       NAP
      (To Busch)
It's double Dutch time.
                                                            
Nap pretends to grab something off the floor and hands it to
Busch. They spread apart about fifteen feet. Nap snaps the
pretend jump rope up in the air and they start circling
their arms in a jump rope fashion. Nap with a nonchalant
face like he has done this a hundred times. The people in
the bar stop to watch. With music in the background Bertels
jumps in the middle and starts to jump the rope and dance in
the middle of the two captains. He smoothly slides out of
the way. In jumps Reefer.
                                                            
                       REEFER
I'll show you how it's done.
                                                            
Reefer jumps up and down and sprints in place. He grabs one
foot and starts jumping the rope. He finally jumps out of
the way.
Jay jumps in to take his turn. He starts jumping and falls
to the floor and starts doing push-ups, but lifting his body
off the ground to go over the imaginary rope. A waitress
walks through the "rope." The three stop their game in
disgust. Nap picks up the end of the rope, which the
waitress took a few feet away. He gives her a stern look.
Busch picks up his end of the imaginary rope. The game
continues. The girl just looks and laughs at the ruggers.
The crowd at the bar just eats it up in excitement. They
have never seen anything so bizarre. A couple of girls jump
in the middle and start jumping the rope in tandem. This
really gets the other rugby teams excited.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To waitress)
OK, now you have to show us how
it's done since you ruined my
fifteen seconds of fame.
                                                            
                       WAITRESS 5
Watch this!
                                                            
She hands Jay her tray and jumps into the middle with a
cartwheel.
                                                            

97.

                       BUSCH
Now we're talkin'
                                                            
The waitress jumps a little more and flips out. She grabs
her tray from Jay. She is wearing a tight white tank top.
                                                            
                       WAITRESS 5
You owe me tip now.
                                                            
Jay gives her a couple of bucks. He whispers to Mick.
                                                            
                       JAY
Tip? Shoot I'll give her the whole
damn thing.
                                                            
Jay sees the Opponent Prop he punched drinking with his
team.
                                                            
                       JAY
      (To Waitress 5
       giving money)
Here, buy them guys a pitcher on
me. I kicked his ass and we beat
them in our rugby match today.
                                                            
                       2ND PROP
      (To his waitress)
Here buy that guy over there a
pitcher on me. I kicked his
ass today and I feel a little
sorry for him. Also, I think he is
gay so don't try any moves on him.
                                                            
                       WAITRESS 5
Here you go. A pitcher of Bud
Select complements of that
tall guy over there.
                                                            
                       2ND PROP
Tell him thanks, by the way he is
gay so make certain you don't
fall for any of his lines he
will only disappoint you.
                                                            
                       WAITRESS 5
Oh yea, you don't say. He has been
undressing me with his eyes all
night.
                                                            

98.

                       2ND PROP
      (pointing at
       bouncers)
Are you sure you weren't standing
next to a bouncer?
                                                            
                       WAITRESS 5
I'm sure.
