John pulls the chair from the end out and sits down then
Jake pulls the chair next to him and sits down and then Lucy

Pauly looks in shock and so does Lucy. John looks up

Mr. Farrot swings around from wielding holding the welding
stick with a huge flame from it he lifts up his welding
Thats a pretty big flame
                       MR. FARROT
Don't look directly at it or it
might blind you.
Mr. Farrot chuckles and hits Pauly on his side really hard.
Can you put the flame out?
                       MR. FARROT
Oh yes certainly.
Mr. Farrot distingushes the flame and puts the wielder down
then reaches his hand out to greet Pauly.

back over to Pauly. And shows it to him.

See I gave your son an F. He
didn't work hard enough to get an
A minus.
Pauly's face turns to confusion.
But why does it say an A minus
                       MR. FARROT

to Pauly. He nervously says.

Pauly looks at him confused then reaches his hand in Mr.
Flagstones candy tray and takes the piece of candy out and
puts it in his pocket.
No, Mr. Flagstone I'm Pauly Rhodes

Mr.Flagstone turns around dramatically, then walks over to
his seat to sit down.
                       MR. FLAGSTONE

Rhodes dad the future star of this
team, number one in your and soon

report card it says you gave him a


                       PAULY (cont'd)

Pauly begins to walk over to show him the report card but
Mr. Flagstone freaks out.
                       MR. FLAGSTONE
What the hell do you have in your
Calm down it's just the report
                       MR. FLAGSTONE
Just the report card do you know
how many freaking times i have
heard that it's always just the
report card or just a paper or
just a pencil. But guess what i've
been shot at three times hit ounce
staped at four times and hit every
single time. So do not bring that
report card up to me. Put your
hands up right now!
But how else are you going to look
at it?
Mr. Flagstone rolls over to him cautiosly and snatches the
report as quickly as possible then rolls back as fast as
ever and sits at his desk.
                       MR. FLAGSTONE
As i look at this do not take
another step, because i have
protection and i'm not afraid to
use it.
I'm sorry I'm married....to a
woman i don't swing that way.
                       MR. FLAGSTONE
Shut up this instance or i'll send
you to the principals office.
sorry Mr. Flagstone
Mr. Flagstone looks at the report then looks up confused.


                       MR. FLAGSTONE
How did he get a D plus if
anything i would've gave him a F
or a Z if i possibly could but a D
plus thats not possible.
Thats what i thou
                       MR. FLAGSTONE
Don't speak unless I'm talking to
well who were you just talking to
                       MR. FLAGSTONE
Mr. Flagstone hands the paper back to Pauly dramatically
from a distance then stands up and begins working on the
chalkboard. Then Pauly begins to leave but he stops at the
door and knocks a book off the counter causing a big bang.
Mr. Flagstone dives to the ground dramatically throwing a
desk down in front of him for protection.
                                         ANOTHER PART OF THE
Pauly begins walking down the hall going to John's History
teacher he knocks on the door and enters through. The
teacher of the class is the coach of John's football team.

Coach Williams stands up and shuts the door quietly and
closes the blinds and shuts the windows
                       COACH WILLIAMS
Did you show the teachers the
grade on there report card.
Yeah of course
Coach Williams grabs it and puts the report card in the
sherder. Then looks at Pauly.
                       COACH WILLIAMS
This is what's going to happen
Pauly you never came to this high
school today you never brought

                       COACH WILLIAMS (cont'd)
or any projects. He will have a
free ride in this high school then
a free ride in college as long as
he continues to play sports with
this high school. Do you
understand now?
But how is suppose to learn then?
                       COACH WILLIAMS
The only thing John needs to learn
about is how to become a better
football player by learing the
playbook and reading defenses.
Do you do this to every football
                       COACH WILLIAMS
No usually only starting seniors
and people who show potential but
never for freshman. But when i see
John practice i see the best
potential for any quarter back in
high school.
But what would happen if he gets
                       COACH WILLIAMS
Well if it's a serious injury i
hope you can hire one hell of a
What if i want John to earn his
education like i did.
                       COACH WILLIAMS
Its up to you Pauly, but being a
student athlete is a very
difficult thing it comes with a
lot of stress and my way helps the
football player begin able to
relax and only worry about his


A man isn't nothing without his
education, Coach Williams.
Pauly stands up and begins to head towards the door but he
gets stopped by the coach.
                       COACH WILLIAMS

administration about this will

sure myself that you get escorted
out of this school.
                       COACH WILLIAMS
You know Pauly usually parents

child is passing.
Well there gutters aren't as dirty
as mine.
Pauly exits the class room in shock and anger of what he
just heard.
The camera shows John Rhodes on the computer then it shows
Lucy walk past with a load of laundry.
What are you looking up sweetie?

       around fast
       removing her
       facial expression)

John turns around with the phone back up to his ear. He
begins walking up the steps Lucy stands up and begins
putting the dishes in the dishwasher.

Pauly comes bursting through the door angry.

John comes running down the steps still on the phone.

John follows his fathers order then goes into the kitchen
and sits down the chair in the middle of the dinning table.

Slaps the new report on his son's desk.

Pauly gives John his jacket and John goes puts it on the
coat rack as Pauly holds his son's cell phone and put's it
on the counter.
Pauly what's going on I thought
John was passing every grade.
Nope Coach Williams was changing
his grades to help him pass by
with a low GPA.
Your kidding me, why didn't you
tell John that?
It sounds stupid but a football
player can not learn from a coach
he can't trust.
Is that what happened to you.

you have to be on stupid man to
trust him.
I love you Pauly.
Love you also, Lucy
Pauly and Lucy share a PG rated kiss while standing in the

Pauly knocks on John's door and then enters and it shows
John talking on a cell phone.
I said no phones how the hell did
you get that.
Pauly walks over to John then grabs the cell phone out of
his hands and screams into the phone to the other caller.
He'll talk to you tomorrow, Good
Pauly then hangs the phone up and throws it out John's open
window in his room. Then John begins to laugh a little about
the situation.
What is so funny?
That was your phone not mine....I
took it from your jacket.
Pauly runs over to the window and looks outside in shock
then turns around in anger and John who is still laughing
see's how mad his father is and he stops laughing.
So after you gave me your word
about this situation, you stabed
me in the back by breaking the
rules that I enforced.
      (dissapointed in
I'm sorry, Dad.
Sorry doesn't cut it this time
Pauly grabs Johns 360 then walks out of his room and begins
to head downstairs with it, Then John follows him. It shows
Pauly walking down the steps then he puts the 360 on the
table behind the couch.


Dad, Listen to me?
No son you listen to me you want
to be this big shot nfl
quarterback but guess what without
dicisipline you won't be in the
nfl. That's all i'm trying to give
you son is dicisipline to help you
make better choices then i did at
your age.
Well it seems your doing pretty
I didn't have a father that loved
me my father didn't give a damn
about me son. I turned out the way
i did because of your mother. I
was a wreck before i meet her and
she saved me from possibly dying.
John walks over to the chair stressed out and he sits down
and puts his hands in his hands.
You just don't understand Dad, I'm
under to much stress with
football, school and just having a
social life so when i found out I
passed every class that was a
relieve lifted off of me. I was at
peace in my mind but when you came
home tonight and showed me those
report card's all that stress was
just thrown upon me ounce again.
Pauly walks over to John and rests his hand upon him.
John I know high school is
stressful but i'm here for you
John, I'm hiring you a tutor first
thing tomorrow who will meet you
here after practice and help you
with your studys.


A tutor can't help me it will take
me months until i can get a
passing great.
Well at least it won't take years
Dad your not helping.
Listen son what i'm trying to say
is that there is always a light at
the end of the tunnel no matter
how dark you think it is there
will always be a light to save you
from the dangers of this world.
There was for me so there will be
one for you.
While Pauly was saying those final lines he was looking at
Lucy with sincere eyes. Smiling big, then he turns back to
Thanks Dad.

learn something in school
John begins to Laugh
Goodnight Dad love you

John begins to head up the steps but stops and turns around
and looks at Pauly.

Pauly walks over to John quietly and ask likes he's telling
him a secret.

reason only.

Jake heads down stairs.

      (turns to see Jake)

I could have a better chance being
the first kid president.
Pauly begins to chase Jake up the stairs as the camera zooms
back. And the show comes to an end.
It shows Pauly in the kitchen looking for a snack then he
hears the 360 in the living room turn on. Pauly walks out in
the living room to see who's playing it. It shows John on
the couch playing madden.

play video games what are you
I thought you meant I couldn't
play video games in my room.
No smart alec i meant period.

Pauly walks over to the couch and grabs a controller and is
about to sit down on the couch.
Hey Dad you might just want to
stand it's not going to take me
that long to score on you.

recieve so hurry up lets get this
game going.
It's John kick the ball off then it shows pauly recieve it

It doesn't matter how I did all
that matters is that you need to
get your butt upstairs because i

360 because your not going to be
playing it any longer. I'm on top
of the world!
That's not fair re match.

rule book. Time for bed time.

go to bed and you don't
Because I'm the adult and the
adults make the rules and the
children have to follow them. By
the way did i tell you I won.
Pauly goes on ranting so John finally went up stairs to go
to bed. Lucy walks by from the kitchen. While Pauly is
jumping up and down on the couch like a little child.
Go to bed Pauly you have to work
Pauly jumps down from the couch frightfully because Lucy
just walked past him. Then Lucy heads up the stairs tired
and Pauly looks up towards the steps.
Yes, sweetie i'll be right up
                                         FADE OUT
