FADE IN:

EXT. FIELD - DAY
                                                            
Boy -- 15 yr old walks to school, passing by many of his
friends and "friends."
Boy says 'hello' to many girls, each one of them turning
back to their friends in disgust.

This boy is Ryan Miller, a freshman making his way up the
social ladder.
Ryan walks up the steps of RiverWalk High School, with his
(fake) leather jacket and ripped blue jeans.
                                                            
                       RYAN (VO)
I remember the first day of high
school. I walked down the front
grass like the coolest guy in the
school, oh wait, I was the coolest
guy in the school. All the girls
loved me. I was like...Charlie
Sheen!
                                                            
Ryan continues down the hall of this nicely crafted high
school. Ryan makes his way to his locker. His locker
consists of many pictures of Oprah, Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, and
Charlie Sheen. Ryan grabs his old binder and runs off to
class in an empty hallway, just as the bell rings.
                                                            
                       RYAN (VO)
The best part of high school was
my girl, Barbra Usher Johnson.
Hottest girl in the school, she
was even a year older than me. A
sophomore!
                                                            
 
INT. CLASSROOM - DAY
                                                            
Ryan makes his way into his first class, where everyone is
still getting ready. Ryan sits next to a attractive blond
girl, who is chatting with friends. This blonde →
Barbra Johnson. As Ryan has mentioned, she was the most
popular girl in the school. When Ryan said she was his girl,
well, he might have been stretching the truth, just a bit.
                                                            
                       RYAN
      (to Barbra)
Hey Barbs!
                                                            
Barbra Johnson turns from her seat, shocked. A loser, total
nerd had just said 'hi' to her. This must be some sort of

2.

crime, right?

Camera freezes on Barbra's shocked face.
                                                            
                       BARBRA (VO)
Ugh, I remember my first day of
sophomore year. I was queen, every
single person in the school wanted
to be me, it was just like that. I
was respected. I was loved. I was
Barbra.
                                                            
 
EXT. FIELD - DAY
                                                            
The freeze frame of Barbra's shocked face rewinds back to
8:15, back when we started. Barbra is walking down the front
grass with 6 other good looking girls walking behind her.
She looks at Ryan, who is saying 'hi' to many uninterested
freshmen. Barbra signals to her clique to move away from
Ryan. Barbra checks her iPhone and starts txting and
laughing. One of the girls asks to see the txt and Barbra
shows her. Barbra and her clique make it into class okay.
Barbra sits down and starts talking to her friends. Ryan
sits down next to her.
                                                            
 
INT. CLASSROOM - DAY
                                                            
                       BARBRA (VO)
The worst part of that year had to
be the loser that kept on
following me. What was his name?
Dylan?
                                                            
                       RYAN
      (to Barbra)
Hey Barbs!
                                                            
Barbra slowly turns to face Ryan, looking totally shocked.
                                                            
                       BARBRA (VO)
Do I have to talk about this?
                                                            
Barbra throws up all over Ryan, then runs out of the room
screaming. Camera follows Barbra down the hall as she runs
into trashcans and pushing freshmen. Barbra makes it to the
bathroom, and she runs into a stall.
                                                            
                       BARBRA (VO)
**Sigh**
                                                            
 

3.

INT. BATHROOM - DAY
                                                            
Barbra is crying, hands in her face, in the bathroom stall.
Barbra stops crying, pulls herself together, fixing her hair
and make up, and opens the stall door. She spots a heavy
looking guy washing his hands. Barbra quickly shuts herself
into the stall.
                                                            
 
INT. LUNCHROOM - DAY
                                                            
6 girls from Barbra's clique are eating lunch in the
cafeteria. One of the girls gets up to get a drink. The
girl's iPhone start to beep.

This gal is Jessica Lunar, Barbra's Best Friend Forever.
                                                            
                       JESSICA (VO)
Yes a call from Barbrito!
                                                            
Jessica answers her phone
                                                            
                       JESSICA
      (on phone)
Yeah--I'll be there in a minute.
                                                            
Jessica takes off running out of the lunchroom.
                                                            
 
INT. BOY'S BATHROOM - DAY
                                                            
The guy in the bathroom (Johnny Walker) from scene five is
in the boy's bathroom, shaving. Johnny is a big guy, around
200 pounds. He could easily crush any freshman walking by.
Johnny hears something from the stall behind him. He turns,
it's the sound of a girls voice--which starts to freak him
out. Johnny walks up to the stall very quietly and puts his
eye up to the space between the bathroom door and wall. He
sees Barbra and shrieks, then quickly covers his mouth.
Barbra walks out of the stall.
                                                            
                       BARBRA
Shhhhh. Johnny shush.
                                                            
                       JOHNNY
      (whisper)
What the--what are you doing in
here?
                                                            
                       BARBRA
Just help me get out.
                                                            

4.

Johnny sighs and opens up the vent on the ceiling, which is
easily reachable with his height.
                                                            
                       JOHNNY
Come on.
                                                            
                       BARBRA
No.
                                                            
Barbra takes out her iPhone and calls someone.
                                                            
                       BARBRA
      (on phone)
Hey, Jess Jess! I need some
backup. I'm stuck in the boy's
bathroom. I need you to create a
distraction right outside the
bathroom so I can walk out. Ya.
Just give me a call. Bye bye.
                                                            
Barbra turns to Johnny.
                                                            
                       BARBRA
Mah reputation, it's ruined.
                                                            
                       JOHNNY
It's okay Barbritio, you'll get
out of this.
                                                            
Barbra moves over to the mirror. She stares at herself for a
while. Johnny moves away awkwardly.
                                                            
                       JOHNNY
I guess I should get going now...
                                                            
                       BARBRA
No! Stay with me, please. If
someone walks in here, mah life is
over.
                                                            
 
INT. CLASSROOM - DAY
                                                            
SCENE NOTE: BF STANDS FOR BARBRA'S FRIEND.
                                                            
Ryan is sitting in his class, covered in vomit, crying. BF
walks up to Ryan.
                                                            
                       BF
Nice job. You make girls cry. How
do you feel?
                                                            
Ryan stops crying and catches his breath.
                                                            

5.

                       RYAN
I-I d-didn't--
                                                            
                       BF
Idiot.
                                                            
BF begins walking away.
                                                            
                       RYAN
Wait! (BF turns.) I-I like Barbie
Doll, she just doesn't like me
back.
                                                            
BF walks up to Ryan and puts her hands down on his desk,
immediately drawing them back because of the vomit.
                                                            
                       BF
Go on.
                                                            
                       RYAN
You know when you see the one, the
you love? You know how that feels?
                                                            
                       BF
I-I've never felt that.
                                                            
                       RYAN
When I see BBQ my heart fills with
love. I know she's the one for me.
I know.
                                                            
                       BF
Wow...Dylan--
                                                            
                       RYAN
My name is Ryan.
                                                            
                       BF
Ryan, you really are the amazing
guy Barbra talks about.
                                                            
                       RYAN
Wait...
She talks about me?
                                                            
                       BF
All the time. Every second she's
like: "Ryan, Ryan, Ryan." She's
obsessed with you, really.
                                                            
                       RYAN
R-Really?!?
                                                            

6.

                       BF
She says you're the one. But she's
scared to tell you. She said you
might not love her back.
                                                            
                       RYAN
I need to tell her how I feel!
                                                            
                       BF
Dylan--
                                                            
                       RYAN
RYAN!
                                                            
                       BF
Ryan, you need tell Barbraso how
you feel. You need to tell her you
love her. She's in love with you.
                                                            
                       RYAN
Really?
                                                            
BF looks like she's about to say something, but she bursts
out in laughter and skips back to her friends, all laughing
at Ryan.
                                                            
                       BF
      (looking back at
       Ryan)
Idiot!
                                                            
The teacher walks in to the room and gasps at Ryan's state
of appearance. She walks over to Ryan and tries to calm him
down, and grabs Ryan by the arm and pulls him out the door.
                                                            
 
INT. HALLWAY - DAY

                       BARBRA
      (on phone)
Ready? Lets go!

Okay everybody. I'm Jessie Lunar.
I'm a sophomore here and I, uh, I
want to give all the freshmen here
a tour of the school.
                                                            
Jessica smiles and starts walking away, nervously. Almost
all of the freshmen in the group decide to follow. Suddenly
the door of the boys' bathroom burst open. Barbra jumps out.
                                                            
                       BARBRA
      (scream)
Ah
