on the dinner table. Erin puts her bag down on the couch ,
and slips out of her flip flops. Walks towards the kitchen,
and sees her mother and sisters, all who don't resemble Erin
at all, except for their beauty.

Erin grabs the brocolli tray and puts brocolli on her plate,
and stabs a chicken leg full of barbeque sauce and throws it
on her plate
                                                            
There is sudden silence for a little while. Kelly and her
husband David look at eachother and decide in a quiet voice
who is going to tell the girls some good news.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (At ease)

                       ERIN
      (Annoyed)
Okay... where are you going with

Kelly and david look at eachother again, and erin seems
suspicious
                                                            
                       KELLY
Well,
      (Swallowing her
       food)

                       KELLY

Rae and Linsey glance a bitchy attitude towards Erin/David
gets up and heads into the kitchen/ David comes out of the
kitchen with a pie in his hand.

Erin grabs her plate and gets up
                                                            
                       ERIN
Then no
                                                            
Erin takes her dinner plate to the kitchen, and throws her
chicken bones in the trash, then turns the faucet water on
and scrapes the barbeque sauce off , and throws the dish in
the sink. Erin turns the water off and walks back to the
dining room.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Putting her hair
       up in a bun)

                       KELLY
      (Frustrated)
Alright, well thats fine.

                       ERIN

sit down on the lawn chairs.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Looking out at
       the ocean)
This is a nice view you've got

                       ERIN

                       ANDY

                       ERIN
      (Chill)

Erin and Andy look at eachother and smile for a long time.
Beans runs over and breaks the silence!
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (Interupting erin
       and andy)

Erin walks away and throws the marshmallow mess in the
trash. Andy watches her leave in fascination.Then looks back
at beans.
                                                            
                       ANDY
So this is what you and Erin do
when your not tanning and...
      (Uncomfortablly)
doing..girl stuff
                                                            
                       BEANS
Oh yeah, well it's much funner

                       ANDY
And her parent's are cool with

                       BEANS
Her parents are like unbelievably
cool with everything, actually.
                                                            
Linsey walks by in a skimpy bathing suit with her other
friends, to take a dip in the ocean.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Looking at linsey)
Who's that ?
                                                            
                       BEANS

                       ANDY
      (Laughs a little)
Im sensing some jealousy?
                                                            
                       BEANS
Oh, trust me, im not jealous
      (Looks at andy)
Just your typical classy bitch.
Always thinking she's the shit....But her sister Rae is probably
worse..They think that because
they have good looks, that they
can make everybody feel like
trash.
                                                            

14.

                       ANDY
      (Smiling)

       eyebrow and
       laughing)
What else is there to
know?...She's hot, her whole
family is hot, she's just part of
a freaking gene pool of hot
people. The only difference is,
she's totally cool, and doesn't
act like a drama queen.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (smirks)

                       BEANS
Erin and Lucus have been going out
for like 2 years, and lucus is
totally obsessed with her.But you
can totally tell that erin isn't
as interested as she was before.
      (Beans leans in
       close to andy)
So she could be yours...real soon.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Freaked out)
Are you giving me advice?
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (shrugs her
       shoulders)
You can take it in whatever way
you wanna take it.

                       ANDY
Well maybe all of us can hang out

                       BEANS
      (Excited)

                       ANDY

behind.Beans walks towards erin, who is standing next to
Lucus, a quite handsome kid, who is goofing off with his
friends. Beans grabs erin's arm, and drags her to another
room.
                                                            
                       BEANS

                       BEANS

                       LUCUS
      (Yelling from
       across the room)
Erin ! Babe ! Come here !!
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Ignoring lucus)
You have got to start asking me,
before you plan shit.
                                                            
                       BEANS
I know i'm sorry
      (Beans takes the
       girls drink that
       passes by her)
I know you like him ! He likes you
! The bird's and the bee's,
whatever. My point is, you need to
get over this whole lucus phase,
because he's an asshole, and move
on to better thing's, for
example....Andy
                                                            
                       ERIN
No...I have a boyfriend
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (Annoyed)
Oh, screw lucus! I never liked
him, and i never will..okay? Do
you not recall what he did to me
last summer?....He drew all over my face with
purple marker when i passed out at
your grandma's lake house.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (smirks)
Yeah, and do you also remember why
he did that ?
                                                            
                       BEANS
Okay, so i borrowed a couple
hundred bucks from him...big
freaking deal. Look your not focusing on the
fact that he is freaking hot, and
he wants to hang out with us.
                                                            

17.

                       ERIN
I can't get with Andy...He's
eighteen years old. I'm pretty
sure there is a law against
that...There's gotta be.
                                                            
                       BEANS
Laws shmaws !! Lucas is turning
eighteen in a couple weeks!
      (Snapping at erin)
Hello?!?! Erin, he's hot. You're
hot. You've got a perfectly hot
guy who want's to get with you !
                                                            
                       ERIN
I'm not getting with him.
                                                            
                       BEANS
Yes you are
                                                            
                       ERIN

       erin for a long
       time)
Okay, fine i'll hang out with you

                       BEANS
      (In a happy tone)
Great !!! I'll see you tomorrow
                                                            
Beans walks away back to the party, and erin stands there
for a few seconds. Erin finally walks back to lucus, who is
still goofing off with some different friends.
                                                            
Lucus grabs erins butt , and erin moves a couple of inches
away from him while still listening to his friends talk.
Lucus looks at erin, and grabs her hand. And once again,
erin rejects him.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
What's wrong with you?
                                                            
                       ERIN
Umm, nothing. Just a little tired.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
You wanna go somewhere else?

                       KELLY

      (Mocking kelly)
No monkey business, i know. I love

Erin hangs up the phone, and starts to get ready. Erin puts
her almost dry hair up in a bun, and slips on her shorts and
t-shirt over her bathing suit. Erin then opens her door and
runs down to her living room.

                       ANDY
That's wierd, i'd expect you to be
enthusiastic about you being home
alone, throwing parties, and what
not?
                                                            
                       ERIN
Yeah that was the case
      (Wiping her mouth
       with a napkin)
When i was 14...Now it happens
often, and it's getting old
                                                            
There is a silence between the three, and beans gets
uncomfortable
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (Talking to
       waitress)
Can we have the check..ASAP?!

                       BEANS
      (awkward)

                       ANDY
      (Looking at erin
       and lucus hug)
Do you think i could take that
kid?
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (Laughs)
My 80 year old grandma could take
him, He's such a woos.
                                                            
Andy and Beans continue to sit there and stare at erin and
lucus who are playing in the ocean together.
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.
                                                            
 
EXT. MIAMI, FLORIDA-BEACH-LATER - EVENING
                                                            
Erin and Lucus are in the ocean with their surfboards. Erin
laying on it and Lucus sitting on it. Both enjoying the
beautiful hot weather.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
Babe , you gotta get into shape
      (splashing water
       in her face)
You're not such a winner at
surfing
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Annoyed)
Could you just not be such an ass
for like a day ?
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (Crinkles his
       forehead)
I was just kidding
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Sits up on her
       surfboard)
Stop talking like that
      (Gets ready to
       ride a wave)
It's getting really annoying
                                                            

24.

Erin rides a wave and reaches the shore. Erin gets off her
board, while Lucus is still back in the water in confusion.
He clears his eyes, and starts swimming himself and his
surfboard to shore. Lucus gets off his board and runs after
Erin.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
Erin!
      (Grabbing erin's
       arm)
What's going on with you lately?
Did i do something to piss you
off?
                                                            
                       ERIN
Yeah..actually, all you care about
in this relatoinship is looking
good.
      (moving her arm
       out of lucus'
       grip)
This relationship isn't fun
anymore
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (confused)
They're not supposed to be fun.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (annoyed)
That's what marriage is for...and guess what lucus, i'm only
16. I don't want to be stuck in a
relationship where all my
boyfriend cares about is
impressing his dumb ass friends.
                                                            
Erin walks away, and lucus tries to figure out what is going
on. Lucus follows erin.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
I honestly don't know what i did.
We were fine just 20 minutes ago,
what happened?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Turning around)
You're a jerk lucus! And i can't
take this shit anymore.
                                                            
Andy walks down the beach step not knowing erin and lucus
are still there and sees lucus is being really agressive
with erin. Andy runs down the beach.
                                                            

25.

                       LUCUS
      (Grabbing erins
       arm)
Hey. I'm talking to you, stop
walking away.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Macho)
Hey !
      (grabbing erin)
Take it easy man
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (Mad)
Who the hell are you ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
Leave the girl alone !
                                                            
Lucus looks at erin for a long time.And erin walks next to
andy.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (To erin)
Are you cheating on me ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
No one's cheating on anybody here,
i'm just making sure erin's okay.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (Yelling)
Dude, shutup !
      (To erin)
After all that we've been through
?...Peace out babe, it's over !
                                                            
Lucus walks away. Erin walks the other way and andy follows
her.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Putting her shirt
       on)
Thanks.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Is he always like that ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
No. He never used to be.
      (Putting her hair
       up in a bun)
Ever since he became the baseball

                       ERIN (cont'd)
captain, he's been annoying.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (laughing)
He finally got what he deserves
then
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (laughing)

      (Reaching her
       backyard)
Hey thanks for that.
                                                            
                       ANDY

No problem
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Giving andy
       "Knuckles")
I'll see you around.
                                                            
Erin walks up her back porch and walks inside. Andy stays
there for a few seconds, and smiles, and walks away.
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.
                                                            
Andy walks back down the beach and pulls out his phone to
call beans.
                                                            
                       BEANS (OS)
Hello?
                                                            
                       ANDY
She's single
                                                            
                       BEANS (OS)
Who's single?
                                                            
Beans is eating a donut while sitting in her laptop
                                                            
                       ANDY (OS)
      (Happy)

      (Walking up the
       stairs)

and be miserable together....What the hell ?
      (Eating her donut)
You know what you should do ?
                                                            
                       ANDY (OS)
What ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
You should totally do that whole
cheesy shit, and get down on one
knee and ask her to be your
girlfriend.
                                                            
                       ANDY (OS)
I honestly don't think that erin
is that naive to buy that type of
crap.
                                                            
                       BEANS (OS)
Oh come on, what's there to buy?
                                                            
                       ANDY
Erin is not some preppy chick, who
falls into those type of traps
      (Sits down at a
       bench)
I've only know here two days, and
i can already tell that she's some
harsh chick who could beat the
shit out of someone by just
looking at them.
                                                            
                       BEANS (OS)
Dude, she totally could.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Laughing)
Okay, this is such a pointless
conversation.. I gotta go.

                       ANDY
      (Clearing his
       throat)
So uhh, What are you doing here?
                                                            
                       ERIN

sitting on the couch watching Friday the thirteenth and
eating varied junkfood snacks.Andy puts his arm on the back
of the couch which evidentally is where erin's head is
resting.Erin gets up, not realizing andys arm and goes to
andys room. . A scary scene in the movie flashes up and andy
gets scared and jumps.Erin looks at herself in the bathroom
mirror and smiles, and puts her hair up in her signature
messy bun.Erin walks to the kitchen and gets some of the
left over pizza left out on the table. Andy looks back and
realizes erin in her stage of beauty. Andy smiles, and gets
up quietly without erins knowledge. Andy walks towards erin,
and gently touches erins shoulder. Erin turns around, and
andy moves her hair out of her face to steal a gentle and
passionate kiss.
MUSIC UP: Rehab-Rihanna
Erin and andy continue to share a passionate moment in the
middle of the kitchen. Erin and andy continue the passion
laying on andys bed.
Suddenly their love- making is interupted as erin lays on
his chest. Andy kisses erins neck, and there is momentarily
a passion between them again.

                       ANDY
      (Awkward)

                       ERIN

Erin gets up off the bed with a sheet wrapped around her
body, walking towards andy. Andy doesn't take his eyes off
of her.Erin stand sin front of andy, and wraps her arms
around his neck and kisses him passionately. Erin stops
kissing him and smiles.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Smiling)

                       ANDY
      (Quietly laughing)

                       ERIN
      (Knodding her head)
Yeah
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Grabbing her hand
       and taking her to
       the kitchen)
Well then lets eat.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Laughing)
Okay
                                                            
Erin and andy are happily together in the kitchen cooking
pancakes together. Andy rolls a towel up and playfully
threatens to hit her with the towel. Erin laughs and pushes
andy. Their playful morning continues as they cook breakfast
and laugh.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (eating the
       pancakes and
       laughing)
This is disgusting
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (eating the
       pancakes and
       laughing)
yeah? Well you made it.
                                                            
Suddenly the doorbell rings and erin and andy look at each
other. Andy gets up to answer the door, and erin goes to the
room to find her pants and t-shirt. Andy opens the door, and
beans stands on the other side.
                                                            
                       BEANS
Why aren't you answering your
phone? I've been trying to call
you since this morning.
                                                            
Erin walks out, and sees beans standing on the other side of
the door.
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (Suspicious)
What the hell are you doing here?
      (Beans forgets the
       question)
Hey did you know Tim lives here?
                                                            

32.

                       ERIN
Yeah, no shit.
                                                            
                       ANDY
How does everyone know where i
live?
                                                            
                       BEANS
This is where all the newbies
live.
      (realizing
       something and
       walking inside)
Wait...You didn't!
                                                            
                       ERIN
Do what?
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (whispering)
Did you guys like....do it?
                                                            
                       ANDY
I'm not sure that i know what you
guys are talking about at this
moment.
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (Smiling)
Oh my gosh...That's so grose !
      (laughing)
Ewww !
                                                            
                       ERIN
Okay. Okay , calm down, it's not
that big of a deal.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Will someone fill me in on what
we're talking about?
                                                            
Beans walks back to the front door, and opens it.
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (fixing andy's
       hair)
You, my friend, have got to get on
my level.
      (whispering in his
       ear)
I just wanna make one thing clear

      (Smiling at him)
Don't break my best friends heart.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (scared and
       gulping his
       saliva)
Umm, alright.
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (Acting like
       everything is
       normal)
Oh, i am so glad to be back.
      (Putting her
       glasses on)
What do you say ? Meet me at the
beach at one ?
                                                            
Beans walks out the door, and closes it behind her. Andy
walks to his room, and grabs erins bag. Erin follows him and
starts laughing.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (laughing)
What the hell are you doing?
                                                            
                       ANDY
What do you mean ?
      (smiling)
Were going to the beach.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Laughing)
That is just beans being beans.
She'll say that to anybody who
even looks at me.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Yeah well, that bitch scares
me...And i'm not gonna piss her

      (Looking at his
       watch)
Let's go.

                                         FADE OUT.
                                                            

34.

Beans is at the beach laying down tanning, and erin and andy
walk down awkwardly not knowing what to do. After a couple
minutes of silence, andy grabs erins hand,and erin grabs a
hold of his hand. Erin looks at andy, and quickly looks the
other way.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Smirking)
So are we doing this?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (putting her
       glasses on)
Doing what ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (shy)
Are we..you know.. in a
relationship? Whatever you teens
call it these days..
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (stays quiet for a
       few seconds)
I just don't want you to turn out
to be someone completely opposite
then who you are now, you know ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
Let's not focus on that. Do you
wanna be with me ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (shrugging her
       shoulders)
Maybe...maybe not
                                                            
                       ANDY
Okay, i'll answer that question....yes.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Are you sure?
      (smiles)
Im not like those other girls. I
don't want you to..you know,
serenade me. I just want you to be
there for me, when i need you.
                                                            
Andy stops walking and pulls erin back to where he stands in
the middle of the beach. Andy grabs erin by the waist and
kisses her.
                                                            

35.

                       ANDY
Then i'm your guy.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Well then...i don't see why not.
                                                            
Erin walks down the beach smiling, as andy stands behind for
a couple seconds smiling as well.Andy runs to catch up with
erin.
                                                            
                       ANDY
You flabbergast me erin.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Smiling)
I'm not falling for your cheesy
lines.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (quietly laughing)
It was worth a shot.
                                                            
Beans gets up, wearing a bathing suit and big hat.
                                                            
                       BEANS
What the hell took you guys so
long?
      (looking at her
       phone.)
It's one-thirty.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (whispering in
       erin's ear)
Wanna go for a swim?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (knodding her head
       and smiling)
Sure.
                                                            
Erin and Andy walk away down the beach to the water.
                                                            
                       BEANS
Hello ?!?!..What the hell guys ?
                                                            
Andy jumps in the water and erin turns around to look at
beans who is still behind standing there speechless!
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (yelling)
Beans !.....Come on get in.
                                                            

36.

Erin runs in the water, and swims where Andy is. Andy and
Erin sit there smiling at each other and play around in the
water.
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (Talking to
       herself)
These bitches. I just got back
from freaking church camp, and
here they are playing in the god
damn water.
      (turns around and
       see's a cute guy.)
Hey !!...I'm sabrina.
                                                            
Beans runs over to the group of cute guys and shakes their
hands.
                                                            
                       BEANS
      (flirting with the
       guys)
How you doing?
      (touching their
       body)
Wow. i work out too. We should
work out together sometime.
                                                            
                       ALEXANDER
      (smiling)
How about tonight ?..eight o'clock

                       BEANS
Sure. where ?
                                                            
                       ALEXANDER
36th street and willow.
                                                            
                       BEANS
Great, i'll see you there.
                                                            
Beans walks away and runs towards their spot of towels, and
open bottles of sunscreen. Erin and Andy are both sitting
down with their sunglasses on, when a volleyball rolls their
way. Andy gets up and grabs it, and takes it back to the
owner, who evidently turns out to be lucus.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (shaking his hand)
thanks man
                                                            

37.

                       ERIN
      (looking at lucus
       and andy from a
       distance)
That little asshole. That is lucus
      (running towards
       andy and lucus)
Hey. what are you uhh, what are
you guys doing ?
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (mischievious)
I was just about to ask him if he
wanted to join in?
                                                            
                       ANDY
Fine. How hard could it be ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (whispering)
Andy, he's the captain of the
volleyball team too.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (whispering in
       erin's ear)
What's the worse that can happen.
I'll be fine.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
So are you gonna grow some balls
and play ? Or are you gonna let
your little girlfriend take away
your man hood?
      (Grabbing erins
       hand and kissing
       it)
No offense..but let the big guy do
what he's gotta do. huh ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Putting her hair
       up in a bun)
No. He's playing...but so am I.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (Laughing)
Alright sweetie. Bring it on.
                                                            
Erin and Andy go against Lucus and his other friend. Lucus
and his friend seem to win for a little while, but Andy and
Erin step up their game, and after many minutes of playing,
Erin and Andy win.
                                                            

38.

Erin throws the ball at Lucus and he is too tired to catch
it. Lucus walks towards Andy while wiping the sweat off his
face with his shirt, and shakes Andy's hand.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
Good game man.
      (Drinks his water)
You're a worthy opponent.
                                                            
                       ANDY
No, that was all erin.
                                                            
Erin walks away and runs towards beans.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (watching erin run
       away)
Are you guys together ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
Yeah man..We are.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (Knodding his head)
Yeah ?...well take care of her man.
Don't let her go
                                                            
                       ANDY
I will. I'll take care of her.
                                                            
Lucus stands there looking at Andy, and without hesitation
or saying anything, turns around and walks away. Andy walks
up to the concession stand.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Pulling out a
       five dollar bill)
Can i have two waters please.
                                                            
Linsey turns out to be the server at the consession stand.
                                                            
                       LINSEY
      (Smiling)
Sure
      (handing him two
       water bottles)
So are you new around here ?
                                                            

39.

                       ANDY
      (Handing her the
       five dollar bill)
Yeah. I've been here a couple
weeks.
                                                            
                       LINSEY
      (flirting)
You should let me take you out,
and i'll show you a few places
around here.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Chuckling)
No. I have a girlfriend.
                                                            
                       LINSEY
      (flirting)
Who's your girlfriend ? I know
everyone here.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Oh you definitely know her.
      (walking away)
It's your sister.
                                                            
Andy walks away, and linsey stands there in shock.
                                                            
Andy gives erin a water bottle and drinks the other one.
Andy kisses erin. and sits down.
                                                            
                       ANDY
I think i just met your sister.
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.
                                                            
 
INT. ERINS HOUSE- DINNER - EVENING
                                                            
                                         FADE IN.
                                                            
Erin shuts the back door and slips out of her flip flops,
while she throws her bag on the couch.Erin walks to the
dining room, and everybody is already sitting down at the
dinner table.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (in a sarcastic
       way)
I'm home.
                                                            

40.

                       KELLY
      (tossing the salad
       with two big
       spoons)
Hello dear. How are you ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (sits down at the
       dinner table)
When did you guys get home
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (smiling)
A few hours ago.
      (passing the salad
       bowl)
Salad?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (grabbing the
       salad bowl)
Sure
                                                            
                       LINSEY
      (drinking her
       juice.)
I met your boyfriend today.
      (smiling)
He's cute.I guess.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (Looking at the
       girls)
Met ?...haven't you already met Lucus ?
                                                            
                       LINSEY
      (dropping her fork)
Oh so she didn't tell you ?
      (Bratty)
Erin has moved on, and she has
found herself another boyfriend,
isn't that right erin ?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Well that's okay hun, things like
this are always gonna happen till
the day you get married.
      (Touching erin's
       hair)
There's nothing wrong with
changing your mind.
                                                            

41.

                       KELLY
      (knodding her head)
That's right...Now who is he ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (still looking at
       linsey)
Andy
                                                            
                       KELLY
Is this the boy you met at the
party ?...hmm ?
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (trying to stop
       the tension)
Kelly...
      (smiling)
That doesn't matter. She's a
teenager, and she has every right
to not want to be in a
relationship anymore. Her and
lucus are no longer together, so
lets just drop this conversation.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (putting her fork
       down)
I just don't understand..He was a good kid.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (getting annoyed)
Mom, i don't care. It's over, so
just build a bridge. alright ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (raising her
       eyebrows in
       disbelief)
Alright, fine.
                                                            
There is a long silence, as the family continues to eat
dinner as a dysfunctional family would. Sounds of forks
scraping against empty plates, and worn out faces to Erin,
continue to look ashamed upon her.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Well, when are we gonna meet the
kid ?
      (annoyed)
are we ever gonna meet the kid ?
                                                            

42.

Erin gets up out of her seat, and walks away for a few
seconds. Erin walks into the room, and leans over the
counter with frustration. Erin then walks back to the dining
room, where everyone is sitting down still in disbelief.
                                                            
                       ERIN
I'm tired of this shit mom !!!
      (pushing the food
       out of kellys
       hand)
just be proud of me for one god
damn thing ! Just one ! Jesus mom,
that's all i want !
                                                            
                       KELLY
You think your the only one who's
tired of this god damn routine
erin ?
      (bows her head
       down, and then
       picks it up.)
You are an arrogant little brat,
who could have the world at her
feet, but you choose to live other
wise, staying out all hours of the
day, and going out with every boy
in Florida ! I worked too damn
hard to be sitting here every day,
waiting for you to come home so we
cann all have a nice dinner
together as a family, that's not
how i raised you
      (standing up)
And it frustrates the hell out of
me.
                                                            
                       ERIN
If anyone is to blame, it is you !
You pay more attention to your
dumb ass vacations, then your own
daughters...doesn't Hawaii get
old, how many times have you been
there anyways?
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (bangs on the
       table)
I work damn hard for every single
thing that is in this house, and i
deserve a vacation erin !
                                                            

43.

                       ERIN
Oh for Christ sake mom. you're not
capable of doing anything, you
don't do shit, you just sit on
your ass and come up with more and
more reasons to hate me !
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (pointing her
       finger at erin)
Don't you dare tell me what i am
capable of doing. Now you are a
sixteen year old girl, who do you
think you are to talk to anybody
like this.
      (calms down)
Now lets all reiterate ourselves.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (rolling her eyes,
       and walking away.)
Screw you mom.
                                                            
Rae, Linsey, David, and Kelly all stay in the dining room.
There is not talking. Only the sound of Erin's feet pounding
as runs up the stairs, and the slamming of a door as Erin
enters her room.
                                                            
Kelly turns around for a second while everyone is still
sitting down.Kelly closes her eyes, and opens them after a
few seconds of disbelief. Kelly turns around to face the
"family", and starts to clear off the table.
                                                            
                       KELLY
You girls go ahead to your friends
house, i'll get this junk.
      (looking at the
       "family")
Go on ! I'll be fine.
                                                            
The girls stand up and grab their keys, and walks out the
door.David stands up and starts grabbing the plates out
kelly's hands.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (kisses kelly's
       forehead)
Honey, Erin is not as simple as
you want her to be. She needs her
space. She doesn't want to be like
those girls out there, and she has
every right to make those kind of
decisions.
                                                            

44.

                       KELLY
David, i just don't know where we
went wrong with that girl. I gave
her everything.I bought her the
most expensive dresses, i put her
in the best music school in the
state.And then she turns fifteen
      (chuckles)
And, she throws it all away for
converse shoes, and big band
t-shirts. She's not my little girl
anymore.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (hugs kelly)
Honey, she will always be our
girl.Just not a little girl.Those
days are good and gone, she's
growing up. She's got a boyfriend,
hopefully a good one. And she's
about to graduate highschool. You
gotta trust her.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (crying)
i just don't know what to do with
her anymore. she's a monster.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (grabs a chair and
       sits down and
       grabs kelly's
       hand)
Kelly, you remember when Erin was
born, and you got to hold her for
the first time ?...you remember how you had your
heart set on a baby boy? But erin,
turned out to be a girl ? You were
a little disappointed, but you
held that beautiful little girl,
and you promised her that you
would love her through anything
and everything.
      (smiling)
Now you got through the sleepless
nights, and the potty training,
and the nightmares. You went
through all of that, even her
first boyfriend.
                                                            

45.

                       KELLY
David i know i did. It's just,
it's very hard to do this right
now.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Hold on a minute. Those times were
tough. No matter how much crying,
and how much attitude that sassy
little girl gave you, you always
stuck by her side. And you know
why ? Because that night you made
a very important promise, to a
very important part in our lives.
And you need to keep that promise
now, no matter how hard it is to
do so.
                                                            
Kelly wipes her tears, and David stands up to kiss her for a
couple seconds.
                                                            
                       KELLY
I guess your right.
      (taking a deep
       breath)
thank you for that. I really
needed that.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (smiles)
Yeah your welcome.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (laughing)
I always knew there was a reason
why i married you.
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.
                                                            
 
INT. ERIN'S ROOM- LATER - NIGHT
                                                            
Erin is laying on her bed watching eat, pray, love. She
hears a knock on her door, and throws the remote on the side
table.
                                                            
                       ERIN

                       KELLY (OS)
It's me. Can i come in ?

                       ERIN
      (mimics her mom
       and makes faces
       quietly)
Sure.
                                                            
Kelly opens the door, and walks in closing the door behind
her.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (Sits on her bed)

       the movie)
Crap...eat,pray, barf.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (laughs)
I never could figure out why your
sisters liked this movie.
      (looks at erin)
Erin i'm sorry. I shouldn't have
yelled at you like that. I'm happy
for you, i really am, i think it's
great that you have a new
boyfriend.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Mom you don't have to be happy for
me, i just can't stand when you
try to hide your disgust with the
whole world, when i know what
you're thinking. It's obvious.
                                                            
                       KELLY
I know. I know, i'm sorry. It's a
habit. Why do you think i never
talk to my mother ? Cause she does
the exact same thing.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (tries to hide her
       smile)
Mom, i'm gonna go to Andy's
house.tonight.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (holding back)

                       KELLY

                       KELLY

                       ERIN
      (raising her
       eyebrows)
Alright, well just, give me a few
minutes to get my things.
                                                            
Erin gets up and goes to her closet to grab a bag from the
top shelf. Kelly grabs the remote, and turns the volume up
to watch eat, pray, love in a more clear volume.Erin walks
to her drawer, and grabs some clothes , that she shoves in
her bag. Erin walks to her bathroom, and looks at herself in
the mirror, and then grabs her toothbrush and walks out.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Alright, i'm ready.

smile.They all stand there for a couple of seconds, and andy
opens his mouth, but after a second of not knowing what to
say he closes it.
                                                            

48.

                       KELLY
      (shaking andy's
       hand)
I'm Kelly, Erin's mom.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (awkward)
Mrs. Cole, i'm Andy.
                                                            
Erin stands there in awkward silence. She gets bored sitting
there in silence, and starts swinging her arms back and
forth and clapping them.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Well it was nice meeting
you..Andy.
      (begins to turn
       around)
I have to go. Bye.
                                                            
Kelly walks away.Erin walks inside Andy's house, and Andy
follows her while shutting the door behind him.Erin lays on
the couch in a lazy way, and pulls the cover off the back of
the couch and lays it over her. Andy stands by the door, and
looks at erin. Erin closes her eyes. Andy walks over to the
couch, and gets under the covers with erin.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (laughs)
You're too big to be on this
couch.

                       ANDY

                       ERIN
      (trying to get up)
Okay, let me up.
                                                            
Andy sits up and Erin walks to the bathroom.
                                                            
Andy lays back down on the couch while Erin uses the
bathroom.
                                                            
                       ERIN (OS)
      (While in the
       bathroom)
Did you clean or something ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (with his eyes
       closed)
Yeah, just cause i'm a guy,
doesn't mean i don't have motives.
I clean.
                                                            
You hear the toilet flush, and faucet water turn on.After a
couple of seconds, the faucet water turns off. Erin opens
the door and walks to the kitchen.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (sarcastic)
Chill out man.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (rubbing his eyes)
Well, i'm going to bed.
                                                            
Andy gets up and walks to Erin who is looking through the
refrigerator. He stands there, and after a moment gives Erin
a kiss.
                                                            
                       ERIN

                       ERIN

mean you're an adult.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Well, according to the state of
california, I am legally an adult.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (smiles)

                       ERIN
a dog ? Do you really think a dog
would want to live in this....shit
hole?
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (sarcastically
       laughing)
A dog does not care where it
lives, as long as he has some food
to grub on, and a bed to hide
under, he's pretty much good. Just
give him some love, and he'll love

                       ANDY
      (sitting up)

can forget it.
                                                            
                       ERIN

                       ANDY
      (raises his
       eyebrows)
I want a dog not a freaking
monster..Plus, where the hell are we

Bernard? They're extremely
expensive, and extremely hard to

                       ERIN
      (chuckles)
Why would i ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
I don't know, that's usually not
the reaction a girl gets when her
ex wants to hang out with her
boyfriend.
                                                            
                       ERIN

winks at andy. Lucus, drinks his coke.
                                                            
                       LUCUS

Lucus takes the pen from the waitress, and takes her hand to
write something down.
                                                            
                       LUCUS
      (handing the

                       ERIN

                       ANDY
      (petting the puppy)

                       ERIN
      (talking in a baby
       voice)
Yes, Gunther.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (chuckles)
Alright

       couch)

Erin puts Gunther down, and sits down next to Andy.Gunther
starts barking and smelling around.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Alright, if that dog shits in my
house, you are responsible for
cleaning it up. Cause i'm not
doing it.
      (Annoyed by the
       dogs barking)
Alright shut up already.
                                                            
Erin walks over to Gunther. Erin sits down on the floor, and
picks Gunther up.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (talking to
       gunther)
Don't mind him Gunther, He's just
a grumpy old man.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (smirking)
This relationship is getting too
damn serious.
                                                            
                       ERIN

INT. ERINS HOUSE- DINNER - NIGHT
                                                            
Erin walks through the front door this time of her house,
and hangs her jacket up in the hall closet, and puts her
shoes in the shoe rack. Erin turns the corner after walking
down a long hallway full of family pictures all in the
scenery of a beach, and all with a fake smile from Erin.
Erin finds her family haven't sat down at the dining table
without her this time, and when they see her arrive, they
automatically turn the TV off, and her mom comes out of the
kitchen with a big extravagant meal.
                                                            
                       LINSEY
      (Bratty)
Look what the cat dragged in.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (flipping linsey
       off)
Jealous much ?
                                                            

57.

                       KELLY
      (happy)
Alright, let's all calm down.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (kissing erin's
       forehead)
How are ya ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (sitting down in
       her chair)
I have to tell you guys something.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (mad)
Are you pregnant ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (annoyed)
No !
                                                            
                       DAVID
Go on, tell us.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (excited)
Okay..Andy got me a puppy !
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (choking on her
       food)
A puppy?!
      (Swallowing her
       food)
Honey, don't you think you guys
are getting just a little too
serious, just a little too fast ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (annoyed)
Okay, here we go back to square
one. I don't give a damn what you
think about my social life, nor do
i care what you think about MY
relationships.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (calm)
Erin. Show your mother some
respect.
                                                            

58.

Erin sits there staring at everybody. There is a familiar
long, and awkward silence between the whole family. Everyone
continues to eat their food in silence.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (breaking the
       silence)
Don't you think we should meet the
boy ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
Maybe
      (chewing her food)
Maybe not.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Why don't you invite him to the
party .
                                                            
                       ERIN
What party ?
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (Clearing his
       throat and
       laughing)
Your uhh...your birthday party?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Chuckling)
Oh
                                                            
                       DAVID
Well you be sure to invite that
boy, because i need to meet him.
                                                            
Erin looks around awkwardly at everybody. And sits there and
wrinkles her forehead a little. Erin looks back at her mom,
and her mom smiles at her while everybody is once again,
eating in silence.
                                                            
 
EXT. FLORIDA WALKWAY - DAY
                                                            
Erin is running down the pathway of shops and concession
stands. Erin runs and breathes deeply, while holding her
water bottle in her hand. Erin runs down to the beach, and
sees her sisters. Erin quickly runs away as her sister
realize that she is there.
                                                            
Erin starts to get tired, and slowly starts to walk. Erin
takes a long gulp of her water. And out of no where, Andy
comes up and tips the water so it spills all over Erin.
                                                            

59.

                       ERIN
      (annoyed)
That wasn't very funny
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Laughing)
I'm sorry
                                                            
Andy moves Erin's hair out of her face, and kisses her
passionately with his hands holding her head.
                                                            
Out of nowhere, Erin's parents walk past them.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (Polite)
Erin ?I thought you were...going out for
a run ? Weren't you ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (annoyed)
Yes i actually was. I don't always
walk down the shopping square full
of sweat.
                                                            
Everybody stands there awkward. Andy starts scratching his
head, and erin, kelly, and David all stand there looking at
eachother.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Uhh, dad...this is..andy. Andy,

                       ANDY
      (shaking david's
       hand)
Nice to meet you...sir.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (smirking)
Son, you can call me david.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (chuckles)
Okay, david.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (Preppy)
Umm, actually...sorry. We'd really
love to stay and chat. But, we

                       KELLY (cont'd)

                       ANDY
      (Confused)
Tomorrow ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
Oh no honey. You didn't invite him
?
                                                            
Kelly reaches in her purse and digs real deep to find
something.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Mom, you don't have to give him an
invitation.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (Preppy)
Oh, pish posh honey. Everyone
needs an invitation.
                                                            
Kelly finally finds the invitation in her purse, and hands
it to Andy.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Tomorrow is Erin's birthday party,
and you're welcome to come.
We'd..be glad to have you.
                                                            
They all stare at each other for a long time, while Erin and
David stand there embarrassed, and Kelly continues to smile.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (Smiling and
       Waving)
Bye.
                                                            
David stands there with his hands in his pockets, and Kelly
grabs his arm and they both walk away. Erin turns back to
face Andy and raises her eyebrows a little bit.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (chuckles)
Surprise...
                                                            
                       ANDY
You weren't gonna invite me to
your birthday party ?
      (Kisses her
       forehead)
Hmmm?

                       ERIN
      (scratching her
       cheel)

                       ANDY
      (Smiling)
Well, than it's a date.
                                                            
Erin and Andy embrace with another long and passionate kiss.

                       DAVID
Erin, you're my sweet little
angel. All grown up, next year

your mother, and you know what ?
I'm glad you did. Cause i don't
want you to ever let anybody take
advantage of you. You're my little
girl. So choose your friends
wisely.
      (clears his throat)
Andy, take care of her.
                                                            
Everybody claps , and David steps down. Andy walks on stage
awkwardly.
                                                            
                       ANDY

in the world. And there is one for
each and every one of us.One that
we can love forever, despite
differences. Despite the flaws.
                                                            
Erin and Andy are arguing
                                                            
                       ERIN

Erin walks away and goes inside the bedroom and slams the
door shut
                                                            
                       ERIN (V.O)
Despite the arguments, and despite
all the things left unsaid. If
you love each other, you'll always
love each other.
                                                            
A narration continues to play....Erin starts looking skinny,
and sick. Erin's pale hands open up a bottle of pills, and
sticks some in her mouth.
                                                            
                       ERIN (V.O)
There are bad things in this
world. things that are so bad,
that they can ruin your life. They
can ruin your family's life. And
you begin to shut everything out.
Everybody that loves you, and you
only focus on those bad things.
                                                            
Erin is sitting on the toilet in Andy's bathroom with the
pill bottle sitting on the sink.There is a knock on the
door. And Erin gets up, and closes the pill bottle and hides
it in the back of the sink.

runs in a goofy way to his food bowl sliding across the tile
floor,as he turns. Andy walks in and shuts the door.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (awkward)
Your mom called me.
                                                            
Andy lays down on the couch. and Erin sits down on the other
side of the couch.
                                                            
                       ERIN
What did she say ?
                                                            
                       ANDY

                       ERIN

                       ANDY
Erin, last week you told me you

                       ERIN
      (scrunching her
       forehead)

                       ANDY
Because your moms a doctor, maybe
she'll be more cooperative on what

your mother, she has a right to

Andy grabs the phone, and Erin runs over to Andy and tries
to grab the phone away from Andy.Andy pushes her away and
erin tries to fight andy, but andy just holds her back.
                                                            
                       ANDY

                       ERIN
      (yells)
I don't need any help!!!
                                                            
Andy sits there and stares at erin with the phone in his
hand for a few seconds. Andy slowly walks away, and goes to
his room. Erin stands there in the living room, while she
hears drawers being slammed open and shut.

Erin walks to the bedroom door, but does not enter the room.
Erin stands in front of andy, who is throwing all of erins
clothes out of the drawers and closet.
                                                            
                       ERIN
What are you doing ?

Andy stands there in disbelief. Andy looks like he is about
to cry.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Get out.
                                                            
                       ERIN

INT. ANDY'S HOUSE-LATER - EVENING
                                                            
Andy grabs a trash bag out of the cupboard, and starts
shoving all of Erin's clothes in the bag. Andy is
frustrated, and sets the bag on the bed, and it falls, and
all of the clothes fall out. Andy gets even more frustrated,
and punches the wall. Andy puts his hands on his head, and
takes a deep breath. Andy leans against the wall and slowly
drags his back against the wall down to sit on the floor.

MUSIC UP : Again-Bruno Mars
Andy starts folding all the clothes and putting them back in
the drawers. Andy stands up and puts her pants on the
hanger...Andy grabs Erin's signature glasses laying on the
floor with a crack on them, and puts them on the counter.

Linsey tugs Erin, who is laying on the couch to wake her up.
Erin's eyes slowly open.
                                                            
                       LINSEY
      (sarcastically)
Hi...care to tell me what you're
doing here ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
I could ask the same.
                                                            
                       LINSEY
If that's a joke i don't get it.
                                                            
                       ERIN
How old are you ?
                                                            
                       LINSEY
      (Swishing her hair)
Twenty-five
                                                            

69.

                       ERIN
      (chuckles)
My point exactly....You're twenty
years old, and you still live in
your parents house.
                                                            
Erin walks to the kitchen
                                                            
                       ERIN
So, now do you wanna tell me what
you're doing here ?
                                                            
Erin stands there leaning against the counter and Linsey
sits on the stool.Rae walks in with a facial mask on her
face, and small shorts and a t-shirt.
                                                            
                       RAE
Hey, did you sleep on the couch
last night ?
      (Noticing erin)
What the hell are you doing here ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Raises her
       eyebrows)
Well, gee...I missed you too Rae
                                                            
                       RAE
      (whispering)
Hey, keep it down ! Do you want
mom to find out you're here ?..she finds out you are here, and
she's gonna go on a crazy rampage
or something.
                                                            
Erin opens the fridge and grabs the juice, and pours herself
some juice in the cup that was sitting in the dish rack.Erin
takes a sip, and Rae sits in the stool next to Linsey.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (clearing her
       throat)
Yeah, me and Andy had a
little...uhh, disagreement.
                                                            
                       RAE
      (chuckles)
Well that sucks, because you can't
come back.
                                                            
                       ERIN
I messed up okay?...You don't need
to tell me every freaking second.
                                                            

70.

                       KELLY (O.C.)
      (unaware of erin)
Girls,who ever slept on the couch
last night needs to clean that up.
Cause i'm not doing it.
                                                            
Kelly walks in the kitchen unaware of Erin's presence. Kelly
stops and looks at Erin like something is completely wrong.
Linsey and Rae both hold onto their chairs and look anxious
to get out of there.Erin stands there drinking her cup of
juice, not caring what is happening in the atmosphere at the
moment.
                                                            
                       KELLY
What are you doing here?
                                                            
Erin looks down to the floor and plays with her feet.
                                                            
                       ERIN
I uhh..
      (clears her throat)
Andy and I, had a little
disagreement.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (Sympathetic)
Oh honey, i'm sorry....I-well i
guess i can make an exception.
      (Takes a deep
       breath)
You're welcome to stay here.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (not caring)
Thanks.
                                                            
                       KELLY
But, you can't stay here for long.
                                                            
Kelly walks away back up the stairs. And Erin, Linsey, and
Rae sit there in the same positions they were in before
Kelly entered.
                                                            
                       ERIN
What's up with her ?
                                                            
                       RAE
Um, mom has gone delusional since
you left, and has decided, all by
herself that she's gonna adopt a
Chinese baby.
                                                            

71.

                       ERIN
      (wrinkles her
       forehead)
Are you kidding me ?
                                                            
                       RAE
This is not a joke. Okay, that
woman is crazy, and it's all
because, she just wants to love
you, and take care of you.You are
the only daughter that is legally
still under her wing. She just
feels insecure about the whole,
situation.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (annoyed)
Oh for Christ sake. Is she really
that obsessed with me ?
                                                            
                       RAE
She's your mother erin, okay ? And
you need to grow up and realise
that you are not the only person
in this world. People have faults,
people have feelings. And i know
you can't please everybody, but
you are moms pride and joy. Okay.
      (offensive)
Mom is so sick of Linsey and I.
She really is. And if i were you,
i would take advantage of this
opportunity, because if that was
me that treated mom like that five
months ago, she would've never let
me back into this house.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Well i never asked to come back.
She invited me all by herself.
Andy and I, did not break up and
we're not gonna. And, tonight i
will tell mom that.
                                                            
Erin walks away and Linsey and Rae watch Erin walk up the
stairs.

EXT. ERIN'S BACKYARD-LATER - LATER
                                                            
Erin opens the sliding door to her backyard. The backyard
porch is decorated with lights, and the rest of the family
is sitting out there laughing, and getting ready to eat
dinner.
                                                            
Erin sits down at the extravagant dinner table full of all
kinds of barbecued foods. The atmosphere gets quiet. Kelly
comes and sits down and sets a bowl of Salad on the table.
There is a typical silence at the dinner table.
                                                            
                       KELLY
So Erin, how's the adult life
treating you ?
                                                            
Erin looks at Kelly in a strange way, and puts her fork
down.
                                                            
                       ERIN
It's treating me just fine, mom.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Are you sure ? You don't look to
good. You look a little pale.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (gulps her saliva)
I'm fine.
                                                            
                       KELLY
How's Andy ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Takes a deep
       breath)
He's fine, mom.
                                                            
 
INT. GROCERY STORE - NIGHT
                                                            
Erin and Kelly are both walking side by side in the grocery
store. Kelly is pushing the cart, and Erin is walking with
her arms crossed.
                                                            
                       KELLY
What would you like for dinner
tomorrow ?
                                                            

73.

                       ERIN
Mom, i'm not gonna be here

Why ? Where are you off to now
Erin ?
                                                            
                       ERIN

                       KELLY
      (annoyed)
Okay, no you're not. You're not
going back. That is enough of
this. No. Nope. i forbid you.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Yes i am.
                                                            
                       KELLY
No you're not. You're staying at
home.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Mom, i understand that you have
security problems. But i am not a
little girl anymore. And you can
not tell me what to do. Remember,
that's what the whole emancipation
was for. Alright ?
                                                            
Kelly stops walking and takes a breathe and closes her eyes.
Erin stands there and looks around at everybody who is
starting to stare.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Let's not talk about that.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Mom, it happened, alright ? You
signed the papers, and maybe you
should start thinking of a plan to
tell everybody at home why i don't
come home anymore. Alright ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (Yelling)
Damn it, Erin ! You're coming
home, and that's final.
                                                            

74.

People start watching as Erin and Kelly are caught up in an
argument.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (Embarrassed)
Why are you overreacting ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (yelling)
I am not overreacting.And i refuse
to let some over aged kid take my
daughter away from me. You
understand me ?
                                                            
                       STORE CLERK
Excuse me, i'm gonna have to ask
you to leave.
                                                            
Kelly starts hyperventilating. The store clerk trys to help
her, and lays his hands on her shoulder.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (Crazy)
No. Don't touch me ! Don't touch
me. Get your hands off of me.
                                                            
There is a lot of commotion at this point, and all three of
them are freaking out.
                                                            
                       STORE CLERK
Ma'm, i'm gonna have to ask you to
leave once more, or i'm going to
have to call security.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Mom. Can you just, stop it.
                                                            
Kelly starts screaming,. and the store clerk runs to the
phone to call security.
                                                            
                       STORE CLERK
Security in the dairy section !
                                                            
                       KELLY
Just stop it !
                                                            
Kelly pushes the cart away from her and it crashes into the
bread cart. The bread cart falls to the floor, and Kelly
walks out of the store. Erin stands there and helps the
clerk pick the bread rack up.
                                                            
                       ERIN
I'm sorry.
                                                            

75.

Erin walks in the kitchen and leans against the counter.
Andy walks in and finishes cooking his grilled cheese.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Uhh, i wanna talk to you about,
yesterday.
                                                            
                       ANDY
What's there to talk about?
                                                            
                       ERIN
Andy, you can't keep avoiding me.
                                                            
Andy takes the spatula and picks the grilled cheese off the
pan, and onto a plate. Andy turns off the oven.
                                                            
                       ANDY
I can, and i will.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (annoyed)
Okay, can you just..hear me out ?

found in your pocket a little
while ago, and the bottle of pills

a crack head, then go ahead. But
i'm not gonna stick around and

around.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (mad)
Okay you know what Erin. I want

There is a silence.
                                                            
                       ERIN
I don't know what you want me to
do.... i'm sorry. I just, people
expect me to be some perfect
little girl. Who knows everything,
who can do anything.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Forget everybody, Erin. Forget
what everybody wants.All that
matters is what you want.
                                                            
Erin stands there. Andy walks to Erin, and kisses her.

                       ANDY

beat you in this stupid game.
                                                            
                       ERIN

                       ANDY
      (chuckles)

takes a deep breathe and gets up. Andy opens the door and
there is Kelly standing on the other side of the door. Kelly
looks at Andy in disgust as he is wearing no shirt.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Is Erin available ?
                                                            
Erin walks to the door.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (awkward)
What's up ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
It's your father
      (Takes a deep
       breath)
He had a heart attack.
                                                            
                       ERIN
What ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
Now don't worry, he'll be fine.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Okay just, we'll go to the
hospital as soon as we get ready.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Are you sure ? I don't wanna
      (Disgusted)
break any little love fest up.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (annoyed)

INT. HOSPITAL - NIGHT
                                                            
The atmosphere is quiet. Erin, Linsey, Rae, and Andy are all
sitting together on one side of the waiting room. While
Kelly is siting on the other side of the waiting room. A
doctor approaches their way, and Kelly stands up. Turns out,
that doctor is not coming to talk to them. Kelly sits back
down. And Erin gets impatient.
                                                            
Erin takes a deep breathe.
                                                            

79.

                       ANDY
He's gonna be fine.
                                                            
Everybody patiently waits for some results. And a after a
long time the Doctor comes out and grabs a seat in the chair
next to Erin. Kelly hurries to grab a seat on the other side
of the room with the rest of the crowd.
                                                            
Dr.Hale shakes everyone's hand.
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
      (friendly)
Hi. I'm Dr.Hale. Specialist in
cardiology. I just have a some
questions for?
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (raising her hand)
Oh, that would be me. I'm Kelly.
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
      (Smiles)
Kelly. Hi, Kelly. Um, is David
under any stress lately ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
I'm pretty sure he's not.
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
Are you sure? Stress can be caused
by anything..Work, family,
friends.
                                                            
Kelly keeps her cool while taking a glance at Erin.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (forcing a smile)
No.
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
Okay,alright. How about exercise ?
Is he getting enough exercise,
eating the right foods ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
Yes, we have vegetables everyday,
eat the right amount of meat. We
don't eat junk food. We're a very
healthy family.
                                                            
Dr. Hale writes some notes down in her notepad.
                                                            

80.

                       DR. HALE
Okay, and does he smoke ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
I'm pretty sure he doesn't, Dr.
Hale.
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
okay, well..Lack of exercise, low
fiber diet, low fruit and veggie
intake, high fat and cholesterol
intake. Anything that will clog
your coronary arteries with fatty
deposits. These are the biggies.
      (professionally)
Heredity can also be a factor.
This is why checkups with the
doctor are very important.
                                                            
                       ERIN
So is he gonna be okay ?
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
I can suggest that you may want to
keep a close eye on him. He's 42
years old, he's still just a
little too young to be having
these kind of problems.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Yes, Doctor. We will be sure to
keep a close eye.
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
i would suggest controlling the
high blood pressure, the high
cholesterol. And he'll be good in
no time at all.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (smiles)
Yes ma'm
                                                            
Kelly grabs her jacket.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Girls, Let's go.
                                                            
Erin walks towards David's room.And Kelly and the girls
watch her leave in disbelief. Andy looks awkward and follows
Erin's lead.
                                                            

81.

Erin walks into the room, and Andy stands outside. David is
watching the football game on his cool TV. David's hospital
room looks like it's worth a thousand bucks.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Dad.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Hey, what are you doing here ?
                                                            
Beat.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Are you okay ?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Honey, come on in. Shut the door.
                                                            
Erin walks all the way in the room, and shuts the door
behind her. She crosses her arms, and stays standing up even
though she's standing next to a nice and comfy looking
couch.
                                                            
                       ERIN
what's up.
                                                            
                       DAVID
I'm going to tell you this, and
you cannot tell your mother. Is
that understood?
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (chuckles)
sure
                                                            
                       DAVID
I'm sick.
                                                            
                       ERIN
what do you mean ?
                                                            
                       DAVID
i'm sick.I was diagnosed,
with...Marfan syndrome.
                                                            
                       ERIN
What the hell is that ?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Uhh, it's a heart disease.
                                                            

82.

                       ERIN
well, i mean can we do surgery ?
There's gotta be something.
                                                            
                       DAVID
I've already agreed to do the
surgery, and i need someone to be
here for me, so..would you and
Andy concider being here?
                                                            
                       ERIN
Well, why can't mom take you ?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Erin, out of everybody that has
ever known your mother, i think
you would be the one to know why
your mother can't take me.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (pause)
That's because she's my mom. I'm
supposed to hate her. She's your
wife, she needs to be with you,
she needs to know about this.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Are you gonna be here or not?
                                                            
Beat.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (pause)
We'll be there.
                                                            
David grabs her hand and kisses it.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Thankyou.
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.

                       ERIN
Well, i don't know maybe because
you add so much stress to
everybody's lives.Everywhere we
go, everything is such a big deal
to you. What do you expect ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
Well, he's my husband, Erin. I
would expect just a little more
out of him, than this.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Mom, he had a freaking heart
attack, the last he's gonna want
is some bitchy mother up his ass
twenty four seven.
                                                            
                       KELLY
I beg your pardon?
                                                            
                       ERIN
oh...my god, mother ! I'm. You
know what no ! I'm tired of
arguing with you. I'm leaving.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Fine, get out ! And don't come
back, because this is no longer
your home ! Just get out ! You're
not my daughter anymore.
                                                            
Erin and Andy are already half way out the door, and Erin
turns right back around.
                                                            
                       ERIN
You are so full of shit mom !
                                                            
Erin and Andy walk out the door, and Erin slams it shut.
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.

84.

INT. HOSPITAL - DAY
                                                            
Erin and Andy are hugging David who is being pushed around
in a wheel chair, by a nurse. David gets wheeled away to the
room he will be doing his surgery. Erin and Andy sit down.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (huffs)
This is taking forever and a
freaking day, man.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (making a face)
He's getting heart surgery, not
going in for a check up.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Still, shouldn't it only take like
an hour max. We've been sitting
here for like a billion hours.
                                                            
Andy watches Kelly enter through the sliding doors.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (Playing with his
       hair.)
Erin, i think your mom is here.
                                                            
Erin, turns around, and Kelly waves.
                                                            
                       ERIN
This bitch has some major mood
swings man.
                                                            
Erin and Andy stand there waiting for Kelly to get inside
the waiting room.
                                                            
                       KELLY
I'm just here to see how he's
doing.
                                                            
Erin looks at her, and rolls her eyes and looks away. Erin
sits down a seat away from Kelly, and Andy stands in an
awkward position, and sits in the seat between Kelly and
Erin.
                                                            
MUSIC UP : A mellow melody will play in the background.
Erin, Andy, and Kelly all sit there impatiently waiting for
hours. Andy ends up sleeping on the floor resting his head
on Erin's jacket. Kelly is sleeping while sitting up, and
Erin is still awake after many hours of surgery. Erin looks
tired, and worried.
MUSIC OFF:

85.


The Doctor walks out and walks towards Erin, Andy, and
Kelly. Erin kicks Andy lightly , and they all stand up.
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
Hello, Mrs. Cole. We meet again. I
expected you stay over night.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Yeah, well i was unaware that he
was having surgery.
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
Oh, well i apologize for that.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (smiling
       impatiently)
So can we see him ? Is he good now
?
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
      (serious)
Unfortunately, he.. didn't....make
it.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (disappointed)
Are you freaking kidding me ?
                                                            
Andy puts his hand on Kelly;s shoulder. Erin puts her head
down.
                                                            
Kelly takes a huge breath while crying, and starts freaking
out.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (yelling)
What did you do to him ?
                                                            
Kelly drops to the floor.
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
Erin, i'm sorry. You're father
told me to give you a message, if
anything should happen to him.
      (grabs Erin's hand)
He wants you to know that he loves
you. His exact words were, try not
to kill your mother.
                                                            
Kelly cries a little bit more.
                                                            

86.

                       KELLY
Get away from her. Don't touch my
daughter.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (scared)
Just get a grip mom !
                                                            
                       KELLY
How are you okay with this ? How
could you just let go of your
father that fast !
                                                            
                       ERIN
It's life, mom. Get off the god
damn floor, you're making a fool
of yourself.
                                                            
                       DR. HALE
I'm very sorry for your loss. We
tried everything we could. When
your mother is ready, we would
like to have a word with her.
                                                            
Kelly remains on the floor, pounding on the floor, and
crying. Erin and Andy hug each other, for a long time.
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.
                                                            
 
EXT. DAVID'S FUNERAL - DAY
                                                            
There is white flowers all around, and a pretty graveyard,
with tons of family members gathered around. Erin is
standing next to Andy, and holding Rae's hand. Kelly is
holding Linsey's hand.
                                                            
                       PASTOR

In the name of Jesus Christ our
Saviour. Amen.
                                                            
                       BEANS
Amen.
                                                            
Everyone begins to bow their heads in silence. Erin looks up
for a second, and takes in all that is happening. She looks
at Andy, and Kelly. And then at David's grave. Erin then
kneels down on the floor where Beans and Kelly are praying,
and touches her moms shoulder.
                                                            
 
INT. ANDY'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

Erin is wearing untidy clothes, and looks very cracked out.

INT. ANDY'S HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Erin and Andy are sleeping in bed. They both fall asleep
holding each others hands.
MUSIC ENDS:
                                                            

88.

                                         FADE OUT.
                                                            
Andy and Erin lay on the bed together. Closely they snuggle,
and lay there aimlessly staring at the ceiling. Andy plays
with Erin's hair, and Erin is laying on Andy's chest,
looking pale and depressed.
                                                            
There is a knock at the door. Erin gets up and head through
the living room, to open the door. There, stands Kelly with
her two sisters Rae and Linsey.
                                                            
Linsey, Rae, and Kelly all walk in with paper bags of food
in their hands. Kelly heads to the kitchen, and Linsey and
Rae head to the couch, and Linsey turns on the TV.Andy walks
out of the bedroom and stands there watching the unexpected
action in his kitchen and his living room. Erin watches her
mom take meat and veggies out of the paper bags. Erin looks
at Andy and shuts the door.
                                                            
Erin walks to the bedroom, and changes her shirt behind the
door. Andy walks in and scratches his head.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Am i really seeing what i think
i'm seeing ?
                                                            
                       ERIN
If what you're seeing is
dumb,dumb, and dumber...than yeah.
                                                            
                       ANDY
It still amuses me how everyone
always figures out where i live.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (kisses Andy)
It's the only studio apartment
complex by the beach.
                                                            
Erin walks away, and Andy looks at her walk to the kitchen.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Oh.
                                                            
Erin sits at the table, and watches Kelly start up the
burners.
                                                            
                       ERIN
What are you doing here ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
Just thought that...we all needed
to spend some time together. Since
your father took an unexpected
            (MORE)

89.

                       KELLY (cont'd)
absence..you know, we can use the
family time.
      (Looking at Andy)
And i'm guessing that Andy isn't
really going anywhere, so he's
family too.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Okay, last time i checked, it's
politically correct to say that
dad is dead. You don't have to use
all the adjectives, and all that
crap.
                                                            
Kelly smiles, and puts her hand up.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Okay, you're right. Let's just try
to save this whole Dr. Phil
episode for later.
                                                            
Andy walks over to Linsey and Rae and gives them both a hug.
                                                            
                       RAE
How is she ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
Uhh, she's good. Just being her
typical self, I guess
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (looking at the
       90210 episode on
       the TV)
Alright, well save me the soap
opera's for later... i'll be in
that disaster over there.
                                                            
                       RAE
      (chuckles)
Good luck.
                                                            
Andy walks to the kitchen where Kelly and Erin are mumbling
things.
                                                            
                       KELLY
i just think it's a good idea.
                                                            
                       ANDY
What's a good idea?
                                                            

90.

                       KELLY
Going to family counseling.. it's
only right for what we were all
going through.
                                                            
                       ERIN
I'm not talking about this right
now. We're not gonna discuss this.
                                                            
Andy looks over the pots on the boilers, to see what is
cooking. Kelly and Andy give a brief hug, and Andy leans
against the table, and grabs Erin's shoulders
                                                            
                       KELLY
How are you holding up, Hun ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (makes a face)
I'm doing good. The same as
yesterday, the same as the day
before that.
                                                            
                       KELLY
So, this whole death experience
doesn't, you know...bother you ?
                                                            
                       ANDY
Why would it ? People die.
      (chuckles)
It's life...
                                                            
                       ERIN
You're born, you live, you die,
mom...okay ? Just, let's. Can we
not talk about this subject
anymore ?
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.
                                                            
Everybody is all sitting in a circle playing "Slap Jack" and
having fun. Erin and Kelly seem happy sitting there... and
Andy, Rae, and Linsey are all having a good time...Andy
keeps flipping the cards and Rae and Linsey are getting
ready to slap the cards.
                                                            
                       ANDY
And get ready to lose the game.
                                                            
                       LINSEY
Don't be too cocky, buddy..i am
known to be a "slap jack " champ.
                                                            

91.

Andy fastly slaps the jack card before Linsey and Rae get
their hands down, and Rae and Linsey both lay out a big
whine of total loss. Andy stands up and raises his arms in
the air, with his fists clenched.Andy throws the rest of the
deck down on the coffee table and Erin and Kelly laugh a
little.
                                                            
                       ANDY
      (yelling)
I WON !
                                                            
Andy laughs and jumps around humming and getting in
everybody's face.Linsey and Rae get up from the floor and
grab their bags from the couch.
                                                            
                       RAE
Well i'm gonna go, Samantha's
having a party tonight.
                                                            
                       LINSEY
Yeah well, she's my ride, so i
guess i'm leaving too.
      (hugging Andy and
       Erin)
Bye.
                                                            
Linsey and Rae walk to the door and Erin follows them to
escort them out. Linsey opens the door and the two girls
walk out. Erin shuts the door.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Alright, well... mom, it's ten at
night, i think we should all just
call it a night.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Wait, wait, wait. .. wait just a
second, i wanna talk to you about
some stuff. You too Andy, come sit
over here.
                                                            
                       ERIN
What ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
I have a little surprise for you..
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (saracastic)
Really ?
                                                            

92.

                       KELLY
Okay, i enrolled into an online
course, so you can get your GED.
                                                            
It gets quiet and Erin sits there trying to figure things
out.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (chuckles)
Well, i'm not going.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Well of course you are, you need
an education.
                                                            
Andy looks at Erin like she's about to blow up.
                                                            
                       ERIN
it's still summer mom.
                                                            
                       KELLY
Well honey it's obvious you're not
going back to school. I mean you
need to get an education, what's
gonna happen if you two decide to
have a baby, or get married. You
need to get a diploma to go to
college to get a good job.
Otherwise you guys will be living
in this dump for the rest of your
life.
                                                            
                       ERIN
I like this dump. This dump is
better than living in that high
class, stuck up neighborhood with
you.
                                                            
                       KELLY
I was just trying to do you a
favor.
                                                            
                       ERIN
Well don't. I don't need your
help.
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (yelling)
Oh my gosh. You don't need
anybody's help do you? You just
like to convince yourself, that
you're gonna be fine in this
little fantasy of yours, with your
perfect little boyfriend, living

                       KELLY (cont'd)
in this trashy house. Well news
flash Erin.
      (stands up)
You have not seen nothing yet. I
have been through hell and back
with you, missy. And i will tell
you , that it is not easy raising
a little snot like you.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (mad)
You never try. Never. I had to
shop for my own god damn clothes,
and ask my sisters how to use a
freaking tampon, because you were
too caught up in your little
perfect plans. How embarrassing is
that mom ?
                                                            
                       KELLY
Oh, how selfish of you, erin. I
worked my ass off for you. And i
still do. I taught you how to shit
on the god damn toilet, and how to
put makeup on. I taught you how to
do multiplication problems. And
you think that you have the right
to tell me that i have done
nothing for you ?
      (sincere)
Look at yourself you look
horrible. You don't take care of
yourself anymore. Who knows what
you and Andy have been doing.
Having sex and doing drugs.
                                                            
                       ERIN
      (getting annoyed)
Oh, i can't believe you. I don't
need you mom. I don't need any
help from you, not from linsey,
not from rae. I can do this by
myself.Not from dad. Not from
anybody
                                                            
                       KELLY
      (tearing up)
Don't you dare ! Don't you dare

and walk with. Somebody that'll
accept us, for who we are

       away)
. And rarely do we ever find that
special someone. But I did. And if
I could take back any argument we
