THE ALIEN IS A ROBOT... OR IS IT?

FADE IN:

INT. THE CLASSROOM - DAY
                                                            
The three children are sitting in a semi-circle, pondering
the meaning of existence.
                                                            
                       A
      (angrily,)
Dude. No whay. Obviously Locke was
correct. You are such a pessimist.
But I still like you because I'm a
good guy.
                                                            
                       B
      (defiantly)
No dude. I am not a pessimist, i
am a rebel! Hang ten, rock and
roll dude. But I am a jerk who is
insensitive. But inside I am not.
                                                            
                       C
You guys are so selly. I like you
better than B, A. That is a point
of tension for us. Let's go to my
house. We can eat some chyicken.
                                                            
                       A
That sounds like a super duper
fun. Good. But can Bart come? He
is my friend who is misunderstood.
                                                            
                       B
Yeah! Wait, what?
                                                            
                       C
On one condition, Aaron. Bart has
to leave a little bit early.
                                                            
                       B
Wait, You said something earlier
about me-
                                                            
                       A
Great, we'll meet afterschool
before anything could possibly
happen.
                                                            
                       D
Aight.
                                                            

2.

                       B
Hey Darell, where did you come
from?
                                                            
                       D
South Central.
                                                            
                       A
You're such a hardcore dude.
                                                            
                       D
So can I go too?
                                                            
                       A
Go where?
                                                            
                       D
Caren's house. It's not like
there's something else that would
happen that I would be involved
with.
                                                            
                       C
Okay, So the five of us at my
house!
                                                            
                       B
Four.
                                                            
                       A
At least she has great hair...
                                                            
                       B
Well, we should probably stop
doing what we're doing right now,
and do something else.
                                                            
                       C
Yeah...
                                                            
Suddenly, a huge sound.
                                                            
                       A
Did you hear that? We should go
outside and check it out.
                                                            
                       D
Or we could stay inside where we
are safe from a potentially
dangerous situation.
                                                            
                       B
Or not. Let's go.
