Oh... i suppose not. Though i did
put one of Clair's pieces up in
the hallway.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Foster, what an inappropriate
place! It belongs more in the
garbage, away from the public's
eye...
                                                            
(Aaron steers his direction to the hallway, pondering at

Thank you, Aaron. That's very
sweet of you.
                                                            
                       AARON
Well, you're incredibly talented,
Clair. Don't let a snob like
Foster pull you down.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Ha! Yeah, Clair. You should listen
to him.
                                                            
(Sarcasm)
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Your both fools...
                                                            
(Foster plates food, and they all gather around the counter
and take a seat on the bar.)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
So, Aaron. Where are you lodging?
                                                            
                       AARON
Mom's house-well her new house.
She moved over to Portland around
last April.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Portland? What was so important to
her that Portland was the answer?
                                                            
                       AARON
New boyfriend. Didn't hear his
name but apparently he's quite the
catch.

room for the man?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Yeah! Of course-Aaron you're
staying here. I won't here a word
against it.
                                                            
                       AARON

                       FOSTER

linen for you..
                                                            
(Foster excuses himself.)
                                                            
(Aaron looks at Clair)
                                                            
                       AARON
You're impossible... you know?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
I pride myself on it sometimes.
                                                            
                       AARON
Is this one of those times?
                                                            
                       CLAIR

Foster, Come on.
                                                            
(Foster continues to stare, Aaron is stumbling to get up.)
                                                            
                       AARON
No! Foster come back for me!
                                                            
(Foster starts to leave.)

Do you ever worry about him?
                                                            
                       FOSTER

(Clair adjusts herself, smiling, and admiring herself)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I think about you alot...
                                                            
(There's a small silence between the two. Clair understands
that there is more than friendship that Foster thinks about.
She gets a bit uncomfortable.)

INT. SCENE 9 (A WALK IN THE PARK) - DAY
                                                            
(Foster is walking on a side walk and turns into a
neighborhood park.)
                                                            
(His face is full of frustration and walks toward a bench.)
                                                            
(Foster is just so frustrated he starts to pick up rocks and
throw them into the woods.)
                                                            
                       LEON
If you hunt with rocks, you'll
starve.
                                                            
Foster turns around startled, Leon is sitting on the bench.)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Oh, i uh.. wasn't... those weren't
my intentions.
                                                            
                       LEON
I'd say. Rocks haven't been used
since the cave man times... i
think they figured it out a long
time ago.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I wasn't hunting.
                                                            
                       LEON
Obviously, or else you would've
killed something-or someone by
now.
                                                            

14.

                       FOSTER
Why would i hunt in a public
park?!
                                                            
                       LEON
Why would you throw rocks at the
woods?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
...point made. Now if you'll
excuse me...
                                                            
(Foster starts to walk off.)
                                                            
(Foster stops, and turns around.)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Why are people so arrogant? Why
must a man always think they are
right?
                                                            
                       LEON
Aren't men always right? haha!
                                                            
                       FOSTER
No! I'm serious. Why must men
always assume that they know
everything, or what's going on?
It's not Totally accurate.
                                                            
                       LEON
Because crazy fools talk to
strange men they meet at the park?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
You know what every one's problem
is?
                                                            
                       LEON
If i knew that i wouldn't be here.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Where would you be?
                                                            
                       LEON
I'd rule the world, with all that
knowledge. What power someone has
when they know everyone's secrets.
Instead i'm stuck here, resident
of Wolf Creek Park.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
You live here?
                                                            

15.

                       LEON
You could say that. I never leave,
i'm here from dawn til dusk and i
have no current home so... yeah
one would say i reside here.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Are you married?
                                                            
                       LEON
Man, you are just full of
questions.
                                                            
(Foster sits down on the bench)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
One would say.
                                                            
                       LEON
Ha, well at one point i was. The
wacko wife life was too much for
me, I'm a drifter, i don't handle
commitment well.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
That's a shame.
                                                            
                       LEON
Nah, i'm with the one person who
can never let me down and whom i
love the most in this world. Me!
                                                            
                       FOSTER
At least your content with being
alone.
                                                            
                       LEON
You aren't?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I'm not alone! I just don't have a
girlfriend.
                                                            
                       LEON
Well excuse me.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
You ought to be. My friend Clair
is always here for me and i for
her. She frustrates the heck out
of me but, what can i do.
                                                            

16.

                       LEON
Why would you want to attach
yourself to someone who causes you
pain?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
It's not like that, She means the
world to me. I'd say she's more to
me than just a friend.
                                                            
                       LEON
So you two are together?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
No... No, we're not. It's a pity
cause i'd give her the world if i
were. I'm not entirely sure if she
wants to be with me in that way.
                                                            
                       LEON
Dame's are tricky that way. It
took forever for me to figure them
out.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I didn't even know you figure them
out!
                                                            
                       LEON
Oh yeah, definitely. You need to
find out what they want to hear
and what they don't want to hear.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
You mean like, tell them they're
pretty or look nice, compliments
and such?
                                                            
                       LEON
No! Just the opposite!
                                                            
                       FOSTER
That doesn't make sense, Why would
a girl want to be told their ugly?
                                                            
                       LEON
Girls are insecure and feel the
need to fix things or run things
in a relationship.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Uh-huh.. and they want to fix
themselves?
                                                            

17.

                       LEON
Exactly! Girls want to fix
themselves because it's easier
than fixing us.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
That's a bit hard to understand...
                                                            
                       LEON
Think of it this way, Does a girl
remember when you tell them their
dress make them look skinny or it
makes them look fat?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Well... Fat?
                                                            
                       LEON
Exactly! They'll never be caught
with that dress again, and they'll
stick to you like glue knowing
that you'll be the one to tell
them what's wrong with them.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
But Clair is neither of those
things. She incredibly beautiful!
and she knows it!
                                                            
                       LEON
Because you tell her that?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
All the time.
                                                            
                       LEON
and how's that working out for
you?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Well, clair's my friend?
                                                            
                       LEON
Ohhh... so your in the friend zone
now? That's tough to get out.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I will not make a fool of Clair,
even if that means she won't see
me the way i see her.
                                                            
                       LEON
Suit you self.
                                                            

18.

                       FOSTER
If You will excuse me..
                                                            
(Foster stomps off)
                                                            
 
INT. SCENE 10 (GOING TO THE CAR.) - DAY
                                                            
(Foster is walking out of the park and onto his street. He
looks at his house and then hops into the car. He drives
off)
                                                            
 
INT. SCENE 11(LUNCH WITH CLAIR) - DAY
                                                            
(Clair is sitting at a table when Foster walks up and plops
down.)
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Took you long enough.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Sorry... i was on a walk this
morning.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Well then, Nature boy, i'm hungry.
I'm thinking about getting the BLT
with pickles.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Great...
                                                            
(Sarcasm)
                                                            
                       CLAIR
What's wrong with that?
                                                            
(Foster looks at Clair and thinks)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Do you REALLY think you should be
eating all of that? It's a lot of
food.
                                                            
(Clair confused)
                                                            
                       CLAIR
But i always get the BLT...
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Right, i know. Do you think now
you should be eating more salads?
                                                            

19.

                       CLAIR
Oh.. well I'll decide what i eat,
thank you very much.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Suit yourself, if you're really
sure...
                                                            
(Waiter comes up to table, ready to take orders)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I'll have the BLT, with out mayo,
and Clair you'll have...?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
uh....
                                                            
(Looks at menu)
                                                            
                       CLAIR
The Salad, i guess.
                                                            
(Water takes away menus and leaves)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
There we go...
                                                            
(Foster smiles)
                                                            
 
INT. SCENE 12 (FOSTER GETS HOME) - DAY
                                                            
(Foster walks into his house, throws his keys on the
counter. Aaron is sitting at the bar, on his laptop.)
                                                            
                       AARON
Your home earlier than expected.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Yeah, i guess.
                                                            
(Aaron looks up at foster from the computer)
                                                            
                       AARON
Are you mad at me?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
No... No... just uh... taking in
what you said.
                                                            
                       AARON
Look, Foster. Your making this
bigger than it is. You and Clair
are great friends, i see that. It
            (MORE)

20.

                       AARON (cont'd)
doesn't matter how much time you
spend together.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
No, it does, Aaron. I just needed
to realize it.
                                                            
                       AARON
Foster, don't keep doing thi-
                                                            
                       FOSTER
You know what? I need to be left
alone sometimes. I don't care if
you live here, but you don't need
to be involved in this.
                                                            
(Small Pause)
                                                            
                       AARON
Alright.
                                                            
(Foster goes up stairs)
                                                            
(Aaron texts Clair and tells her to come over.)
                                                            
 
INT. SCENE 13 (AARON AND CLAIR TALK) - DAY
                                                            
(Clair and Aaron are sitting out side on the back porch in
chairs.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
...he really said that?
                                                            
                       AARON
Yeah. I don't know what it is but
he seemed more distant.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
I don't understand, You and Foster
were best friends.
                                                            
                       AARON
Maybe he wants space, that's all.
Friends butt heads all the time.
I'm sure he'll open up to me soon.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
If you think so... is it weird
being in the same house?
                                                            

21.

                       AARON
Nah, it's fine. We just stay out
of each others way.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Do you even acknowledge each
other?
                                                            
                       AARON
He's not a ghost, Clair. I can't
just ignore him and hope he'll go
away.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
I know that, it's just... the
tension. I'm surprised he's
letting you stay still.
                                                            
                       AARON
Yeah... but i'm glad he does.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
He's been more blunt with me
lately.
                                                            
                       AARON
Blunt?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Mhm.. like more vocal about the
things i do. I didn't notice all
the things I've been doing wrong
that I've been ignoring or didn't
even think about.
                                                            
                       AARON
Like?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
I've been a pig! It's like a pit
of nonstop food in there.
                                                            
                       AARON
You are not a pig, did he actually
say that to you?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Not really, more of just
commenting about what i ate. But
it's fine, he's right. I should
care more about what i put in my
mouth.
                                                            

22.

                       AARON
Clair, you're beautiful. Don't let
this bio polar kid tell you
otherwise.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
That's what everyone says, but i
know Foster, and he's telling me
the blunt truth. Don't worry about
it.
                                                            
                       AARON
There's no talking sense into you.
Never could.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
and never will.
                                                            
(Foster opens screen door)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Oh, Clair! Didn't know you stopped
by.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Yeah i was just having a chat with
Aaron. What are you doing?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I see, well i'm about to go
running. You wanna join?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
No, that's okay. I think this is a
lazy day for me.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Don't you think you've had enough
of those?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
One day isn't going to matter.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
are you sure? Running could help
you.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
with what?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Oh, emotionally, physically...
losing weight.. being healthier..
                                                            

23.

                       CLAIR
Oh.. well..
                                                            
                       AARON
Clair you don't have to if you
don't want to.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
No, no. Foster, would you mind
stopping by my house so i can put
some sweats on.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Sure. Come on.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Thank you so much, Aaron. For the
talk.
                                                            
                       AARON
Yeah, thanks for listening to me.
                                                            
(Clair and Aaron stand up and give a goodbye hug. Clair
exits.)
                                                            
(Aaron continues to sit on chair, and just looks around.)
                                                            
 
INT. SCENE 14 (CLAIR GOES HOME) - DAY
                                                            
(Clair is jogging with Foster, Clair says good bye and jogs
up to her house. Foster jogs onward and comes across the
same park where he met Leon. He goes into the park.)
                                                            
 
INT. SCENE 15 (A MEETING WITH LEON) - DAY
                                                            
(Leon is sitting on the bench resting, Foster jogs up to
him)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Hey!
                                                            
                       LEON
Howdy, what you doin' back here?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I was on a jog, with Clair.
                                                            
                       LEON
Oh her again? HA! Still chasing
wild game, eh?
                                                            

24.

                       FOSTER
Well, things are changing.. I
think it's turning around.
                                                            
                       LEON
Why's that?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
She's listening to me! What you
told me to do the other day is
working, and she's leaning on
every word i say.
                                                            
                       LEON
Ha! Sounds like it does. Works
with every one of 'em. They're
dying to know what their doing
wrong.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I'd say i owe you a thank you.
                                                            
                       LEON
Nah... better to teach a kid when
he's down then to see him turn
into a fool
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I oughta go... Till later?
                                                            
                       LEON
I'll be here.
                                                            
(Foster jogs off)
                                                            
 
INT. SCENE 16 (INTERVENTION) - DAY
                                                            
(Foster opens the door and puts the keys on the stand. He
walks into the kitchen to see Aaron in the living room.)
                                                            
                       AARON
Hi
                                                            
                       FOSTER
'ey...
                                                            
                       AARON
You've been gone for a while. Long
jog?
                                                            

25.

                       FOSTER
Yeah... Clair needed an extra
push.
                                                            
                       AARON
I think Clair is perfectly fine.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Oh, no.. she is. Just getting her
in shape.
                                                            
                       AARON
She's Fine.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I don't think so.
                                                            
                       AARON
Well why does it matter to you?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
It doesn't! I'm just.. Looking
after her. That's all.
                                                            
                       AARON
I'd find that as a bit of an
understatement.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Well who are you?! Her mother?
                                                            
                       AARON
No, i'm her friend! and i think
she's doing perfectly fine with
out your criticism and bullying.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I've known Clair longer than you
have, and have been twice if not
three times more involved than
you.
                                                            
                       AARON
Does that make you right?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
No, it means i know her more than
you and we were doing fine with
out you!
                                                            
                       AARON
You're not being there for her!
Your tearing her down and trying
to mold her into a person that
            (MORE)

26.

                       AARON (cont'd)
she's not!
                                                            
                       FOSTER
How do you know who she is?!
                                                            
                       AARON
Because she talks to me! Lets me
know what's on her mind. She's a
beautiful person, Foster. Really
she is. Inside and Out and now
your destroying that wonderful
confidence inside herself that
makes her shine. And for what?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
To help her!
                                                            
                       AARON
To help her, or to help you!?

good enough for you?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
No, that's not it!
                                                            
                       AARON
Well... Instead of changing Clair,
you should take a look at
yourself.
                                                            
(Aaron walks off)
                                                            
(Foster stands frustrated in the kitchen)

                       AARON
Thanks Clair.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
You never did tell me why he
kicked you out in the first place.
                                                            
                       AARON
He didn't kick me out, i left.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
But why?
                                                            
                       AARON
We had disagreements.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
About what?
                                                            
                       AARON
... about you, Clair.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Are you being serious?
                                                            
                       AARON
Is it hard to believe?
                                                            

28.

                       CLAIR
well, yeah. I mean... what were
you fight about, about me?
                                                            
                       AARON
He's not treating you right,
clair. And you don't realize it.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
I'm not blind! Foster is being
nothing but blunt.
                                                            
                       AARON
He's not being blunt! He's
degrading you and who you are!
                                                            
                       CLAIR
You don't get it, Foster! He's the
only person really telling me what
i'm doing wrong, when everyone's
too nice to say it to my face.
                                                            
                       AARON
He's not being nice, or helping
you, Clair. He's bringing you down
for his own gain.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
What do you mean by that, Aaron?
                                                            
(Pause)
                                                            
                       AARON
He loves you, Clair.

Best friends love each other,
Aaron-
                                                            
                       AARON
As more than friends?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
He doesn't-
                                                            
                       AARON
yeah, he does.
                                                            
                       AARON
And you?

                       CLAIR
As a friend.
                                                            
                       AARON
As a Friend. Nothing else?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Nothing else.

I didn't do anything, Foster.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
What did you say?!

the one person who actually cared!
                                                            
(Foster starts pacing, emotional and angry)

your own self gain and it's
tearing her apart. Ha, i finally
got her to eat a normal sandwich
again. You know how huge that was
for her? Knowing that she didn't
have to starve herself, to impress
the world? Maybe you could learn

told me to degrade her!
                                                            
                       LEON
I didn't know you loved her!
                                                            
                       FOSTER
But-i just don't understand-gah!
                                                            
                       LEON
Look, i thought that you had
common sense, obviously not. You
know what? I can't talk to you.
Barely even look at you.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I screwed everything up because of
you and your saying you can't even
look at me? Your a crazy old bat,
you know that?
                                                            
                       LEON

                       FOSTER
You know?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Your not a bad guy, Foster.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
-quite pause-
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Your just in the wrong state of
mind.
                                                            
                       FOSTER

                       CLAIR
Ha, yeah i'd say.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
But i mean it... I shouldn't have
treated you like that. Your
perfect, Clair.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Well, i'm not perfect...
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Yes, yes you are. I've known it
for so long but all these years
you never once listened to me say
it.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
It's something everyone says to
make the other person feel better.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
But it's not! Clair your the most
amazing woman in the whole world,
and to me you mean too much for me
to loose you.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Thank you, Foster.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Clair, i really do mean that. I
care about you, and i mean... more
than, this.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Oh... Foster.
                                                            

36.

                       FOSTER
I know I've screwed it up, but i'd
like to know if you care for me
too... in that way?
                                                            
                       CLAIR
-shakes her head- Foster, you've
always been that shoulder for my
head to rest on, But i haven't had
those kind of feelings for you.
They've been with someone else.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Oh... right.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
I'm sorry, Foster.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Well, Aaron has been for you more
lately. I suppose i could trust
him with you.
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Ha, Foster. Your so protective.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I still care about you, Clair. I
can push away some feelings but
caring about you will never leave.
                                                            
(Clair smiles)
                                                            
                       CLAIR
Oh! Don't tell, Foster i told you
that! I'm not entirely sure if he
likes me back!
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Heh... no worries.

What? Again?!
                                                            

37.

                       FOSTER

(Aaron leans on door post)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I talked to Clair.
                                                            
(Aaron stands straight)
                                                            
                       AARON
And?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
heh, She's never loved me.
                                                            
(Aaron huffs, relieved)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
She's loved you.
                                                            
                       AARON
Me?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Yeah... it's something about you
she couldn't get over.
                                                            
                       AARON
Haha, man. That's uh... that's
news.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Yeah, but the way i acted wasn't
great.
                                                            
(Pause)
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I'm sorry, Aaron.
                                                            
                       AARON
Ahh....
                                                            
                       FOSTER
I was being ridiculousness
thinking that i could get her to
love me by breaking her down. It
was wrong, and i blew it.
                                                            
                       AARON
So your back?
                                                            

38.

                       FOSTER
Not completely, it'll be different
from now but i think i'll get used
to things.
                                                            
                       AARON
Well, i'm glad your back man.
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Same, but just do me a favor?
                                                            
                       AARON
Which is?
                                                            
                       FOSTER
Take care of her.
                                                            
                       AARON
ha, no worries, Foster.
