FADE IN:

INT. DORM ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
The room is filled with college kids playing drinking games
and hanging out.

Rap music is blaring.

The walls are clad with posters of bands, beer brands, and
random movies.

Two of the kids on the table are GREG, 21, and STEVE, also
21.

Greg is a typical bro. Backwards hat, yelling and making a
lot of hand motions, making sure that he's the center of
attention.

Steve is larger and looks like a dumb brute.

They are playing two girls on the other side of the table,
EMILY, 18-19, and ERIN, also 18-19. Both are dressed slutty
and seem like bimbos.

Steve and Greg have six cups left and Emily and Erin have
none.

Emily gets ready to shoot.
                                                            
                       GREG
You might as well just hand me the
ball because YOU CANNOT MAKE THIS
SHOT!
                                                            
Emily attempts to bounce it but Steve immediately slaps it
away with great ease.
                                                            
                       GREG
THIS IS STEVIE'S HOUSE! GET THE
HELL OUT OF HIS HOUSE!
                                                            
Greg turns to Steve and they give each other a huge high
five.
                                                            
                       GREG
YOU CAN'T EVEN HANDLE THE HEAT!
WHOO!!!
                                                            

2.

Greg continues to give high fives to everyone around him in
the most obnoxious way possible.

Emily and Erin give each other an annoyed look.
                                                            
                       GREG
THAT'S STEVIE!
                                                            
Greg puts one arm around Steve and points to him
emphatically with the other hand. Nobody responds.
                                                            
                       GREG
Alright!
                                                            
                       ERIN
Can we keep playing now?
                                                            
                       GREG
Oh you can try, but just
remember... YOU'RE IN OUR HOUSE!
RIGHT STEVE!?
                                                            
Steve just smiles and looks blankly like he didn't even hear
the question.
                                                            
                       GREG
Steve?
                                                            
                       STEVE
Wait, what?
                                                            
                       GREG
I asked who's house we were in.
                                                            
A beat.

Steve looks confused.
                                                            
                       STEVE
Our house, Greg?
                                                            
                       GREG
OUR FUCKIN' HOUSE!
                                                            
Greg starts jumping in place in anticipation of Erin's shot.

She throws the ball and before it can even land, Greg slaps
it away, sending the ball flying across the room.
                                                            
                       GREG
THAT'S RIGHT, GET THE FUCK OUT!
                                                            

3.

The girls shake their head, disgusted, and walk away from
the table.
                                                            
Greg continues to cheer, and everyone else continues to
ignore him, clearly annoyed.
                                                            
He grabs Steve by the shoulders.
                                                            
                       GREG
All right big guy, you find the
next douches that want to lose,
I'm gonna go outside and drain the
main vein.
                                                            
He slaps Steve on the back.

He turns to the rest of the room.
                                                            
                       GREG
That's my penis! My penis is the
main vein!
                                                            
He walks out the door.

Someone closes it behind him and locks it. The room cheers.
                                                            
 
EXT. DORM - NIGHT
                                                            
Greg walks outside and looks around. There is a wooded area
a few hundred feet to his right.

With his hand on his groin holding in his pee, he runs into
the woods.
                                                            
 
INT. WOODS - NIGHT
                                                            
Greg runs over to a slight embankment looking down on a very
shallow stream.
                                                            
                       GREG
Ooooh, gotta pee, gotta pee, gotta
pee, gotta pee.
                                                            
He unzips his fly and starts peeing.
                                                            
                       GREG
Ahhh, yes!
                                                            
He smiles triumphantly.

A fait groaning sound comes from off camera.

4.


Greg's face drops and the urine stream stops.

He looks around cautiously.
                                                            
                       GREG
Hello?
                                                            
A beat.

Greg shrugs.
                                                            
                       GREG
Whatever.
                                                            
The smile returns to his face and the pee stream resumes.

After a short moment another groan is heard from off camera.

He again stops peeing.
                                                            
                       GREG
Someone there?
                                                            
A beat.

He resumes peeing for a split second but another groan
immediately interrupts him and he stops.
                                                            
                       GREG
Alright, who's there?
                                                            
He looks around for an extended period of time, nervous.

Still looking slightly concerned, he turns around and
resumes peeing.

The pee stream sounds much shallower this time and we hear
another groan.

Greg looks down, frightened, noticing that he is urinating
on a zombie's head.
                                                            
                       GREG
Dude, what the hell are you
doing!?
                                                            
He continues to urinate on the zombie.
                                                            
                       GREG
Why aren't you moving?
                                                            
He continues to urinate on the zombie.
                                                            

5.

                       GREG
You're a strange one, huh?
                                                            
The zombie lunges forward and bites Greg on the groin.

The camera cuts to the dark sky where a group of bats fly
out of a tree over Greg's gut wrenching scream.

The opening credits roll.
                                                            
 
EXT. REHOBOTH - DAY
                                                            
Rehoboth is a small townhouse style dormitory. It is two
stories high, has two entrances on either side, and one mid
size window in the center.

The sun is shining bright and various college kids walk by
with backpacks and books.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - NATEíS ROOM - DAY
                                                            
NATE, 21, an average looking college kid, lays in bed. His
hair is a mess and the sheets are all messed up.

Someone makes a "sssss" sound from off camera.

Nate grunts and rolls over in bed.

KADEEM, 21, a short black guy, jumps on tops of Nate and
starts yelling and shaking him until he wakes up.
                                                            
                       NATE
      (annoyed)
What the hell!? I'm up!
                                                            
Kadeem laughs and jumps off the bed.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
It's ten o'clock Nate, wake the
hell up.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - BATHROOM - DAY
                                                            
CHRIS, 22, an average height guy is taking a shower.

A dark silhouette appears on the outside of the shower
curtain. Chris notices the shadow and quickly opens the
curtain.


6.

Standing on the other side is SEAN, 22, with a devious and
conniving grin on his face.
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What?
                                                            
Sean quickly slaps Chris in the face and runs away.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Thanks Sean.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - BATHROOM - DAY
                                                            
JOHN, 21, a guy dressed like a hipster, shaves in the
mirror.

He knicks himself with the blade.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Shit!
                                                            
A single drop of blood falls into the sink.

John grabs a tissue and puts it to the cut.

GERRY, 22, a short guy, slowly walks into the bathroom. He
is wearing sweatpants and an unzipped sweatshirt and looks
like he just rolled out of bed.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You look like shit Ger bear.
                                                            
                       GERRY
I just woke up.
                                                            
He turns on the sink and runs his hands under the water,
getting the sleeves of his sweatshirt wet.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You wanna get food?
                                                            
                       GERRY
I have to go to my internship.
                                                            
John resumes shaving.

Gerry turns off the water and slaps himself in the face
several times in the mirror.
                                                            

7.

                       GERRY
Later John.
                                                            
Gerry walks out of the bathroom.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You're going like that?
                                                            
                       GERRY
      (from the hallway)
Who give's a shit.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (to himself)
Probably the senator you intern
for, but that's okay.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - DAY
                                                            
The common room is a large, high ceiling room with a table,
several chairs, a large TV, and a couch. Attached to the
room is a small kitchen with a stove, microwave, fridge, and
a countertop.

In one corner of the room is a small alcove with storage
space and a washer and dryer. It's piled with random items
like golf clubs, a vacuum cleaner, lawn games, ect.

Sean and Kadeem are sitting at the table watching TV. The
show is something in the vain of "Man vs. Wild" or
"Survivorman."

Sean is eating a bowl of cereal.

CAROLINE, 21, a punk rock girl of sorts, walks into the
room. She is pretty clearly not wearing a bra.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
I'm going outside for a cigarette,
do either of you want one?
                                                            
                       SEAN
      (matter of factly)
No thanks. I don't like cancer.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, Caroline, for real, that
shit's gonna kill you one day.
                                                            
Caroline shakes her head.
                                                            

8.

                       CAROLINE
Whatever.
                                                            
She leaves.
                                                            
Nate walks into the common room.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Sorry I cut your beauty sleep
short before.
                                                            
                       NATE
I'll sleep when I'm dead.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Hi there, Nafy.
                                                            
                       NATE
Hello, Sean.
                                                            
Sean continues to watch TV and eat his cereal.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, Nate, you heading to the packy
later?
                                                            
                       NATE
Yeah, probably at three or so.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Can I tag along? I'm getting some
expensive shit tonight.
                                                            
                       NATE
What's the occasion?
                                                            
                       KADEEM
I just got a feeling man, I got a
feeling it's gonna be one of them
nights man.
                                                            
Kadeem smiles wide.

Nate nods his head.
                                                            
                       NATE
How about you Sean, do you need
anything?
                                                            
Sean continues to watch TV.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Not a thing, Nafy.
                                                            

9.

KATH, 22, a fairly tall girl dressed kind of like a hippie
enters the room.
                                                            
                       KATH
This is so crazy, I knew you guys
would be here.
                                                            
                       NATE
What?
                                                            
                       KATH
I was just in my room and I had a
weird feeling that you guys would
be here. It just like popped into
my head. It was like "Kath go into
the common room." It was one of my
moments. You remember how I always
had psychic moments, Nate?
                                                            
                       NATE
I remember you always telling me
you had psychic moments... and I
remember always immediately
disregarding them.
                                                            
She shakes her head at Nate.
                                                            
                       KATH
I knew you'd be here.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Maybe you knew we'd be here
because you heard us talking from
where your room is five feet down
the hall. Or maybe it's because we
live here... and 90 percent of the
time somebody occupies the common
room.
                                                            
                       KATH
No... I just knew.
                                                            
                       NATE
Cool.
                                                            
                       KATH
I'm about to go to the packy do
you guys need anything?
                                                            
Kadeem and Nate look at each other.
                                                            
                       NATE
I'm all set.
                                                            

10.

                       KADEEM
Yeah, I don't think I'm drinking
tonight.
                                                            
                       KATH
Okay, well, I'll see you guys in a
little bit. Peace and love.
                                                            
She leaves.
                                                            
                       SEAN
      (sarcastically)
Namaste, Kath.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, Nate, remember when you dated
her?
                                                            
Nate laughs sarcastically.
                                                            
                       NATE
Hey, remember when you were four
feet tall?
                                                            
 
INT. CAFETERIA - DAY
                                                            
The dining hall is pretty packed with students.

Sitting at a small table are JACQUIE, 21, FAITH, 21, and
BECCA, 21. Jacquie and Faith have brunette hair and Becca
has long blonde hair.

Both of them have a paper cup of coffee.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
So come on, tell me what happened
with you and Nate last night?
                                                            
                       BECCA
Nothing happened.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Oh, don't give me that. You guys
were all over each other all
night, there's no way nothing
happened.
                                                            
Becca looks at Jacquie slightly embarrassed.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Oh, Becca!
                                                            

11.

                       BECCA
Jacquie!
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
What are you doing!
                                                            
                       BECCA
I'm sorry!
                                                            
                       FAITH
What happened!?
                                                            
                       BECCA
I don't know! I just got nervous!
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Well, did he make a move or not?
                                                            
                       BECCA
Kind of?
                                                            
                       FAITH
What do you mean "kind of?"
                                                            
                       BECCA
Well he came back to my room and
we were watching the Food Network.
And we were in bed... and he asked
me if he could kiss me...
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
And...
                                                            
                       BECCA
And... I pretended I was asleep.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Oh dear God.
                                                            
                       BECCA
And he left.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Why did you do that?
                                                            
                       BECCA
I was nervous!
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Do you want him or not?
                                                            
                       BECCA
YES!
                                                            

12.

                       JACQUIE
Then stop dicking around and start
getting around on his dick!
                                                            
                       BECCA
I'm trying! I'm just nervous, I'm
sorry.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Tonight. Tonight is going to be
different. And I don't want to
hear that you were nervous
tomorrow or anything like that.
Tonight is going to be your night
okay?
                                                            
                       BECCA
Okayyyyy.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
I'm serious. Nothing is going to
get in your way tonight and I mean
nothing.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Okay I get it!
                                                            
A beat.

They each take a sip of coffee.
                                                            
                       BECCA
I hope he's not mad about last
night.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
INT. WEIGHT ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Nate is sitting on a bench press and Chris is standing next
to him. Both boys are wearing work out clothes.
                                                            
                       NATE
All I got was basically a high
five to the dick.
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What does that even mean?
                                                            

13.

                       NATE
I don't know... When I woke up
this morning it was written in the
notepad on my phone.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
It doesn't sound good though.
                                                            
Chris makes a slow high five motion in the air and then
grabs his crotch.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Yeah, that's not good.
                                                            
                       NATE
Can't be.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I guess it's close to a hand job?
                                                            
                       NATE
That's even worse.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Why?
                                                            
                       NATE
Stick out your finger.
                                                            
Chris sticks out his index finger. Nate grabs it and tugs on
it.
                                                            
                       NATE
Does that feel good Chris?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
No...
                                                            
                       NATE
Exactly.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Just do your set.
                                                            
Nate leans back and lays down on the bench.

There is a LOT of weight on each side.
                                                            
                       NATE
If I can get four reps I'll be
happy, alright?
                                                            

14.

                       CHRIS
Yeah, I got you.
                                                            
Nate puts his hands on the bar and starts breathing heavily
to pump himself up.

Chris looks up for a moment and double takes, looking out
the window.

Outside, about a hundred feet away from the window, someone
is tattered clothing is wandering around on the football
field near a fake wolf, the kind used to keep canadian geese
off of grass.
                                                            
Nate lets out a huge grunt, picks up the bar, and it
immediately falls on him.
                                                            
Chris doesn't notice and continues to look outside. The
person on the football field lunges at the fake wolf and
starts tearing it up.

Nate's face gets increasingly red as he attempts to move the
bar.
                                                            
Chris continues to watch the guys outside.

Nate gurgles and Chris finally notices and comes to his
aide. He helps pick the bar back up and set it onto the
rack.

Nate goes into a coughing fit.
                                                            
                       NATE
      (raspy)
What the fuck!?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
There was a guy outside!
                                                            
Chris points to the window.

The guy who was previously on the field is gone.
                                                            
                       NATE
Oh there was a guy!? Sound the
fucking alarm, there was a guy
outside! Because there's not three
and a half billion guys in the
fucking world! We wouldn't want to
miss that!
                                                            
 

15.

EXT. REHOBOTH - NIGHT
                                                            
The sun is down and it's dark out.

Several college kids walk by the dorm.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Nate, John, Jacquie, Becca, Chris, Kath, Faith, Caroline,
Gerry, and Kadeem are hanging out, drinking, talking, and
playing random drinking games.
                                                            
Jacquie pulls Nate over to the side.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
So what are you planning tonight?
                                                            
                       NATE
To drink?
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
With Becca!
                                                            
                       NATE
      (frustrated)
Oh my God, not this again. I'm not
going to do anything okay? Last
night I tried and all I got was...
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
      (interrupts)
All you got was a high five to the
dick, yeah I know. Everyone knows.
You've said it about four thousand
times today. It's run it's course,
alright?
                                                            
Nate looks shut down.
                                                            
                       NATE
Okay.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Listen, I'm gonna be blunt with
you. She wants it.
                                                            
                       NATE
Then why did she give me a...
                                                            
Jacquie gives Nate the evil eye.
                                                            

16.

                       NATE
Why did she deny me?
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Because she's nervous. But that's
allowed because she's the girl.
You're the guy so you have to make
the first move. That's how it
works.
                                                            
                       NATE
But that's not fair.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
That's what girls do.
                                                            
Nate sighs.
                                                            
                       NATE
I hate girls.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
I know you do, but that's how
girls work. We wait for you to do
everything, we get drunk and cry,
and we go to the bathroom in
packs. The faster you accept it
the better.
                                                            
                       NATE
So I should make a move?
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Yes.
                                                            
                       NATE
Are you sure?
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Is Kadeem black?
                                                            
                       NATE
Yes?
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Do you not know? Whats's the
inflection for?
                                                            
                       NATE
Alright, yes!
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
There's your answer.
                                                            

17.

In another corner of the room John talks to Becca.
                                                            
                       JOHN
No more of this high five shit,
okay?
                                                            
                       BECCA
I'm sorry!
                                                            
                       NATE
So what are you planning tonight?
                                                            
                       BECCA
To just have fun!
                                                            
                       JOHN
About Nate!
                                                            
                       BECCA
I'm open to whatever!
                                                            
                       JOHN
He's gonna make a move I promise.
                                                            
                       BECCA
This is awkward now though because
he knows you're talking to me.
                                                            
                       JOHN
This is just what happens.
                                                            
                       BECCA
I hate guys.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I know you do, but this is how
guys work. We have our friends
fight our battles, we're overly
persistent with girls who don't
want us, and we think it's cool to
quote Will Ferrel movies.
                                                            
They turn around and look at the group playing beer pong.

Nate and Kadeem high five each other at the table.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Whammy!
                                                            
                       NATE
You stay classy, Rehoboth!
                                                            

18.

John and Becca turn around.

They both shrug in agreement with what John just said.

In the middle of the room, Chris jumps up on a table.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Alright, train's leaving!
                                                            
Everyone gets ready to leave and puts on their jackets.
                                                            
 
EXT. COLLEGE CAMPUS - NIGHT
                                                            
The whole group exits the house. They're all very loud,
shouting and laughing.
                                                            
Nate walks up to Becca.
                                                            
                       NATE
Hey.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Hey Nate!
                                                            
                       NATE
So, I'm just gonna come out and
say it, will you dance with me
tonight?
                                                            
                       BECCA
I'd love to!
                                                            
Nate smiles.
                                                            
                       NATE
Yeah?
                                                            
                       BECCA
Yeah, that'll be fun!
                                                            
                       NATE
Alright, perfect!
                                                            
Jacquie grabs Becca by the arm and pulls her to the side.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Good. Now follow through this
time.
                                                            
                       BECCA
I'm going to don't worry. It'll be
fun.
                                                            

19.

She smiles assuredly.
                                                            
Kadeem puts his hand of Nate's shoulder.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
It's your night bro.
                                                            
                       NATE
It's about time.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
There ain't nothing that could
ruin this night, man.
                                                            
                       NATE
Yeah man... not a thing.
                                                            
 
INT. PARTY - DANCEFLOOR - NIGHT
                                                            
The common room to another dorm is filled with college kids
that are dancing and drinking.

A DJ is playing loud dubstep dance music through several
large speakers.

Nate and Becca dance with each other in the middle of the
huge crowd. They seem to be very into each other.

From a distance, Kath stands with Sean and watches them
dance with each other. She looks extremely angry.
                                                            
                       KATH
This is so disrespectful to me.
                                                            
                       SEAN
What do you mean?
                                                            
                       KATH
They're dancing IN FRONT OF ME.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Yeah, we should send them to the
closet.
                                                            
                       KATH
This is just so wrong.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Haven't you guys been broken up
longer than you dated?
                                                            
Kath shoots Sean a glare.
                                                            

20.

                       KATH
It's college Sean, everything's
multiplied.
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       SEAN
So then isn't the time you've been
broken up multiplied too?
                                                            
                       KATH
That's not how it works.
                                                            
On the dance floor, Nate and Becca continue dancing. Nate
leans over her shoulder and kisses her on the cheek. She
turns around and they begin to make out.
                                                            
Kath looks livid.
                                                            
                       KATH
This... this is... I can't.
                                                            
Kath storms out of the room.
                                                            
 
INT. PARTY - HALLWAY - NIGHT
                                                            
Faith and Chris are standing in a small group, each drinking
a beer.

Kath storms past them.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Kath, what's wrong?
                                                            
Kath stops dead in her tracks and turns around to Faith.
                                                            
                       KATH
What's wrong? I'VE BEEN BETRAYED!
                                                            
She turns back around, opens the front door, and charges
outside.
                                                            
Chris and Faith look at each other, annoyed.

They both place down their beers and immediately rock,
paper, scissors each other.

Chris tosses out a rock and Faith tosses out scissors.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Shit. Okay, I'll see you tomorrow.
                                                            

21.

                       CHRIS
Sounds good.
                                                            
Faith turns and leaves the party.

Chris casually resumes drinking.
                                                            
 
INT. PARTY - DANCEFLOOR - NIGHT
                                                            
Nate and Becca finish kissing and smile at each other.

Becca grabs Nate by the and and pulls him off of the dance
floor.
                                                            
 
INT. PARTY - HALLWAY - NIGHT
                                                            
They stop outside a girls bathroom.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Stay here for two minutes and then
we'll dance more, okay?
                                                            
                       NATE
I'm not going anywhere, don't
worry.
                                                            
They both smile.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Two minutes.
                                                            
Becca walks into the bathroom. Nate takes his cell phone out
of his pocket and starts to play with it. He walks a few
feet down the hall.

In addition to the bathroom door, there are three bedroom
doors that are all closed.

From inside one of the rooms comes a loud groaning sound.

Nate puts his ear up to the door and the groaning sounds
louder. He laughs to himself.

Becca comes out of the bathroom.
                                                            
                       NATE
Come listen to this.
                                                            
Becca puts her ear up the the door, hears the moaning, and
laughs.
                                                            

22.

                       BECCA
Someone's getting lucky!
                                                            
                       NATE
Wait... I have an idea.
                                                            
He grabs her by the hand and pulls her down the hall.

They walk up to Chris and the group he's talking with.
                                                            
                       NATE
Chris... We have to antique
someone.
                                                            
He smiles wide.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Yup, let's go.
                                                            
Chris, Becca, and two other random guys follow Nate.
                                                            
 
INT. PARTY - KITCHEN - NIGHT
                                                            
Nate opens up a small pantry and removes a bag of flour.

He looks at it proudly.
                                                            
                       NATE
Yup.
                                                            
 
INT. PARTY - HALLWAY - NIGHT
                                                            
The group stands outside the bedroom door with the flour.

There is still some groaning coming from inside.

Each guy takes a handful of flour from the bag.
                                                            
                       NATE
Okay. One... two... three!
                                                            
Nate slams open the door. Chris and the other two guys run
into the room and throw the flour at the people inside.
                                                            
 
INT. PARTY - BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
A guy is laying down on the bed and a girl is leaning over
him.

All the guys laugh and cheer.

23.


The girl looks up and has blood dripping off of her face.
The guy she was leaning over is partially eaten. The girl
growls at the group, pieces of flesh falling out of her
mouth.

They all stop laughing.
                                                            
                       NATE
Well, that's weird.
                                                            
The girl lunges forward at the group and attacks one of the
random guys standing next to Nate, biting him on the neck,
killing him.
                                                            
Blood sprays all over Nate's shoulder and arm.
                                                            
 
INT. PARTY - DANCEFLOOR - NIGHT
                                                            
They all run through the crowd. Chris grabs a microphone
from the DJ booth and stops the music.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Everyone run!
                                                            
The crowd looks on in silence.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Did you hear what I said!?
Everyone fucking run or you're
gonna die!
                                                            
The DJ resumes playing music to the crowd's approval.
                                                            
                       DJ
You're a downer, dude.
                                                            
Near the entrance to the party, the zombified girl and the
reanimated corpse of the guy she just ate charge into the
party.
                                                            
Steve who is dancing by himself notices her.
                                                            
                       STEVE
Hey. You wanna dance?
                                                            
She growls. Steve smiles and moves towards her.
                                                            
                       STEVE
Alright!
                                                            

24.

She lunges forward and attacks him, biting him on the
shoulder.

The other zombified guy begins attacking people as well.

The crowd panics and flees.
                                                            
 
EXT. COLLEGE CAMPUS - NIGHT
                                                            
Nate and Becca frantically run hand in hand with a group of
people including Chris, Kadeem, John, Jacquie, Sean, and
Caroline.
                                                            
Other college kids run around screaming in the background,
being chased by zombies. Several are killed and eaten.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
The entire group funnels into the dorm and slams the door
behind them.
                                                            
Kath is sitting on the couch crying and Faith is sitting
next to her.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
What the fuck just happened!?
                                                            
                       NATE
You didn't even see what we saw.
                                                            
                       JOHN
What'd you see?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We just saw Steve Greene get his
fucking throat ripped out by some
random girl!
                                                            
Everyone paces around the room in shock.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, for real, what the fuck was
that crazy white girl on?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
That's nothing like any drug I've
ever seen.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Guys just calm down. Whatever it
was it'll get taken care of.
                                                            

25.

Nate walks up to John.
                                                            
                       NATE
You know I want to calm down, BUT
I'M COVERED IN ARTERIAL BLOOD
SPRAY!
                                                            
                       SEAN
Where's Gerry?
                                                            
                       JOHN
I didn't even see him when we were
running back.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Who was he with?
                                                            
                       BECCA
I saw him near some Asian girl
when we first walked in.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Was she cute?
                                                            
                       BECCA
What the hell does it matter!?
                                                            
                       NATE
Jesus Christ, this is bad.
                                                            
Faith quietly raises her hand as the others all pace around,
looking out the windows and panting.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Excuse me?
                                                            
Everyone anxiously continues panting and walking around.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What?
                                                            
                       FAITH
Um... Well... What are you talking
about?
                                                            
                       NATE
Okay um... I don't know how to
explain this.
                                                            
Nate puts his hands on his head.
                                                            

26.

                       NATE
We were at the party, and I
thought I heard something coming
from...
                                                            
                       CHRIS
      (interrupts)
People just started eating each
other.
                                                            
                       NATE
Yeah, that's probably the easiest
way to put it.
                                                            
Faith seems relatively un-phased and nods.

People continue pacing.

After a moment she raises her hand again.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
You can just talk, Faith, you
don't need - what's your question?
                                                            
                       FAITH
      (calmly)
When you say that people started
eating each other... what does
that mean?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I honestly don't know how else to
explain what that means.
                                                            
A police siren is heard from outside.
                                                            
                       SEAN
The police showed up.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Oh thank God.
                                                            
                       JOHN
See I told you guys. All this
shit's gonna be straightened out
in a few minutes.
                                                            
The entire group, except Faith and Kath, rush to the window
and look out.

From outside we hear several gunshots and indistinct
screaming.


27.

After a few moments, a large explosion is heard and a bright
flaming light shines through the window onto the group.

Their jaws drops and the gunshots, siren, and screaming
stop.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Well, that's probably not good.
                                                            
John bites his lower lip and closes the curtain in defeat.

The group walks away from the window and resumes pacing
nervously.

Jacquie starts to cry.
                                                            
Faith raises her hand again.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Just talk, girl!
                                                            
                       FAITH
What was that loud noise and
bright light from? Is someone
shooting off fireworks?
                                                            
Nate walks over to Faith and kneels down next to her.
                                                            
                       NATE
      (calmly)
I don't think you're quite
grasping the severity of the
situation right now. The loud
noise that you just heard... was a
combination of gunshots and
several police cars literally
exploding... The bright light was
the flash that it made when it
burst into a giant ball of fire,
okay? Are you getting this?
                                                            
                       BECCA
So what do we do now?
                                                            
                       KATH
Why don't you just go kiss Nate
again! See if that works!
                                                            
Everyone looks completely dumbstruck.
                                                            
                       NATE
What?
                                                            

28.

                       KATH
Oh, don't try and act innocent
Nate. I saw you on the dance
floor.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Is this real life right now or
not?
                                                            
                       KATH
I can't believe you're going to
stand there and try to deny it.
                                                            
                       NATE
I'm not denying it, I just - I -
d... like... ARE YOU FUCKING
INSANE!?
                                                            
                       KATH
Oh, so now I'm the crazy one and
you're the victim?
                                                            
                       SEAN
I think the victims are probably
the people that we just watched
die.
                                                            
                       KATH
This is so typical.
                                                            
Kath stands up in disgust and walks out of the room.
                                                            
                       SEAN
This seems like the most atypical
situation I can imagine.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, you mother fuckers are crazy
as shit. People gettin' eaten and
you arguing about a dance floor
makeout.
                                                            
Kadeem shakes his head.

Chris opens up the window shad again and looks outside.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
You guys should come check this
out.
                                                            
John, Sean, Nate, and Kadeem walk over to the window and
look out.
                                                            

29.

                       SEAN
They don't seem happy.
                                                            
 
EXT. COLLEGE CAMPUS - NIGHT
                                                            
At another dorm a little ways away in the same style as
Rehoboth, a group of zombies are slamming against the front
door.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, those mother fuckers are
persistent.
                                                            
One of the zombies breaks through a window. Someone inside
screams. The zombie crawls in and several others follow
suit.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Chris closes the shade and the guys all turn around.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
We need to barricade the windows.
                                                            
                       NATE
With what?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I have some posters and stuff
upstairs.
                                                            
                       NATE
How the hell would that help!?
                                                            
                       JOHN
We should use one of the bed
frames. It's solid wood.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Do we have any nails or anything?
                                                            
                       NATE
We can check the boiler room.
                                                            
They turn and start quickly walking out of the room.
                                                            
                       FAITH
What are you blocking the window
for?
                                                            
They all stop.
                                                            

30.

                       SEAN
From the zombies Faith.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
      (sarcastically)
From the what?
                                                            
                       SEAN
From the zombies.
                                                            
Caroline laughs.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
You can't be serious right now.
                                                            
                       SEAN
My apologies Caroline. I just
assumed that when people walk
around after they die, trying to
eat everyone that they were called
zombies. What would you prefer I
call them?
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Oh my God, this isn't a movie or
something you dumbass.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
What do YOU think they are then?
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
I dont... know. Like... maybe its
a protest? Like Occupy Wall
Street?
                                                            
                       BECCA
How would that make any sense?
                                                            
                       NATE
That would actually make more
sense than most of the stuff
Occupy does, to be honest.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Like a demonstration or something.
                                                            
                       JOHN
A demonstration? What the fuck are
they demonstrating!?
                                                            
                       SEAN
I feel like cannibalism isn't
common for public demonstrations.
                                                            

31.

                       JACQUIE
Maybe it was a riot.
                                                            
                       NATE
Again, I'm going to go back to
Sean's point about how cannibalism
isn't common for that type of
thing.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Maybe they're just really drunk?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I'm not sure how many times - okay
from now on, before anyone says
anything, just ask yourself, "Is
cannibalism normal for this type
of situation?"
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Does anyone have any other
solutions?
                                                            
He survey's the group. They all remain silent.

Faith looks like she has an idea and almost says something,
but instead mouths a question to herself.
                                                            
                       FAITH
      (mouths)
Is cannibalism normal for this
type of situation?
                                                            
Faith shakes her head, disappointed.
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Okay. Game set match, it's
zombies.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Some time has passed.

Sean and Nate hold up a bed frame to the window. On either
side, John and Chris help to fasten the frame up.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Is it gonna hold?
                                                            

32.

                       JOHN
It's gonna hold, don't worry.
                                                            
                       NATE
Yeah. Nobody's getting in here.
                                                            
A small buzzing sound is heard at one of the doors. It
swings open and an extremely drunk Gerry walks into the
house with an ASIAN GIRL in a slutty dress. They're both
laughing their asses off.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Come on, I have more beer
upstairs.
                                                            
                       ASIAN GIRL
I want vodka!
                                                            
Gerry notices the rest of the group.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Hey!
                                                            
He tosses his hands up in the air, walks up to Nate, and
hugs him.
                                                            
                       GERRY
That's where you guys went!
                                                            
                       NATE
Where the hell have you been?
                                                            
                       GERRY
I've been trying to bang this
girl.
                                                            
Gerry smiles and points his thumb over his shoulder to the
girl.
                                                            
                       GERRY
She's not a ten but when you're
blackout drunk... she's a ten.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, you have any idea what the
hell's been going on tonight, man?
                                                            
                       GERRY
Well I was dancing and then people
started yelling and shit so I left
to go back to her room, but her
roommate was screaming and there
was blood all over the floor.
                                                            

33.

Gerry leans in and whispers to Kadeem.
                                                            
                       GERRY
      (whispers)
I think it was her time of the
month, man, it was pretty gross.
                                                            
He stands back.
                                                            
                       GERRY
So you know, we didn't want to
bother her so... here we are...
Can I have the room or not?
                                                            
                       SEAN
Didn't you notice anything
outside?
                                                            
                       GERRY
Oh, shit that's right! Someone
torched a cop car! Fuck the
police! Woo!
                                                            
Gerry starts laughing his ass off.
                                                            
                       NATE
Dude, there's fucking zombies
everywhere!
                                                            
Gerry cracks a smile.
                                                            
                       GERRY
This guy!
                                                            
Gerry laughs again and walks back over to the Asian girl.
                                                            
                       NATE
Where are you going?
                                                            
Gerry looks confused.
                                                            
                       GERRY
To... do sex... I think.
                                                            
                       NATE
Would you take your head out of
your ass and listen to us!
                                                            
Gerry looks slightly perturbed.
                                                            

34.

                       GERRY
      (to the Asian girl)
Can you wait outside for a second,
babe?
                                                            
She nods and stands by the door.
                                                            
                       GERRY
      (to Nate)
Okay, man, you're kind of being a
dick right now.
                                                            
Nate grabs Gerry by the shoulders and holds him firmly.
                                                            
                       NATE
Listen to me you little piece of
shit, there is a fucking zombie
apocalypse happening outside right
now and if you go back out there,
you're literally gonna die.
                                                            
Gerry looks stern as if what Nate said just sunk in.
                                                            
                       NATE
Okay?
                                                            
Nate lets go of Gerry.

A beat.
                                                            
                       GERRY
I didn't realize... what a
gigantic cock-block you were.
                                                            
He turns around and goes over to the Asian girl.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Gerry, wait.
                                                            
                       GERRY
No, this is some typical shit
right here. I bring a girl back
and all you guys wanna do is think
about yourselves.
                                                            
Gerry opens the side door. The Asian girl walks out first.
Gerry stops in the doorway and turns around to the group.
                                                            
                       GERRY
I'm glad we're seniors, because I
never wanna live with any of you
again! I'd rather be dead!
                                                            

35.

Behind Gerry, a group of three zombies jump into frame and
attack the Asian girl, ripping off one of her arms and
devouring her.

Gerry gets sprayed with blood.
                                                            
                       GERRY
HOLY SHIT!
                                                            
Nate and Sean pull Gerry back into the house and slam the
door behind him.
                                                            
                       GERRY
THAT GIRL JUST GOT FUCKING EATEN!
                                                            
                       NATE
No shit Gerry!
                                                            
                       SEAN
What part of "there's a zombie
apocalypse" didn't you understand?
                                                            
                       GERRY
I didn't think you were serious!
                                                            
                       BECCA
Is that girl dead?
                                                            
                       SEAN
Well, her arms got ripped off, so
yeah, I think so.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Can we just agree to never open
that door again?
                                                            
                       NATE
Yeah, I think that's a safe bet.
                                                            
                       BECCA
So what are we supposed to do now?
                                                            
                       NATE
What else can we do? We have to
wait it out.
                                                            
                       FAITH
We could play a board game?
                                                            
Faith smiles.

Everyone else stares at her.
                                                            

36.

                       FAITH
Or not...
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - NATEíS ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Gerry, Chris, and Sean stand by a window on the second floor
looking outside.

There are a few zombies walking around and the cop car is
still burning.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Maybe they're not really zombies.
                                                            
                       SEAN
They die and then eat people. What
else could they be?
                                                            
                       GERRY
Maybe they're just on bath salts.
                                                            
Sean and Chris stare at Gerry.

A beat.
                                                            
                       GERRY
I'm just saying.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
The entire group sits around.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Okay, it's almost five am. We need
to sleep. We don't know how long
this is gonna last and we need to
be rested and at full strength.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
What if those things get in while
we're asleep?
                                                            
                       JOHN
We'll sleep in shifts. Just a
couple hours each shift.
                                                            
                       SEAN
It's five a.m., we might as well
just stay on till morning. I'll
stay up.
                                                            

37.

                       KATH
Can I sleep first? I've had a
shitty week.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Yeah, I know, right? Wanna know
something funny though? A girl I
tried to have sex with was
dismembered and eaten while she
was still alive a few minutes ago.
So yeah you should definitely
sleep off your rough week. I'll
stay up.
                                                            
                       NATE
I'll stay up too.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Okay. Everyone else try to get
some rest, alright?
                                                            
They all nod and everyone but Nate, Sean, and Gerry filter
out of the room.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - JOHN'S ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
The lights are out and John and Jacquie are in bed together.
He is spooning her.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
I don't know how I'm gonna sleep
at all.
                                                            
                       JOHN
We don't have to sleep.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
What do you mean?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Mmm.
                                                            
John starts to kiss Jacquie on her neck.

She looks puzzled for a second and then abruptly turns
around to John.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Please tell me you're kidding
right now.
                                                            
John looks shut down.
                                                            

38.

                       JOHN
W...
                                                            
John stops talking, mid word, and stares at Jacquie.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
People we've known for four years
are being cannibalized and you
want to hook up?
                                                            
John looks annoyed.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You can be such a... boner killer
sometimes.
                                                            
John turns his back to Jacquie and pouts.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Sean stands at the front of the room and inspects the
barricade on the window.

Nate rifles through various items in the storage area near
the washer and dryer.
                                                            
                       NATE
There's so much useless shit here.
I don't know who half of this
belongs to.
                                                            
Gerry walks over and starts going through the items with
him.
                                                            
                       NATE
Here we go.
                                                            
Nate pulls out a golf club.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Are there any more?
                                                            
                       NATE
Yeah, here.
                                                            
Nate pulls out a second golf club and walks it over to Sean.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Oh hell yeah, look at this!
                                                            
                       NATE
What is it?
                                                            

39.

Gerry hold up a yoyo.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Check this out.
                                                            
                       SEAN
A yoyo?
                                                            
                       GERRY
Yeah, dude, you can swing it and
shit. Smack them in the face.
                                                            
Gerry swings the yoyo around, the string snaps, and the
plastic piece goes flying.
                                                            
                       NATE
We need weapons... not cheaply
made toys that kids with no
tickets get from the video arcade.
                                                            
                       SEAN
We need blunt objects Gerry.
                                                            
Sean walks over to the kitchen area and begins going through
the cabinets.

Nate and Gerry continue going through the storage area.
                                                            
                       SEAN
What about this?
                                                            
Sean holds up a frying pan.
                                                            
                       NATE
Eh.
                                                            
                       SEAN
It's better than nothing.
                                                            
                       GERRY
How about this?
                                                            
Gerry holds up a bottle of laundry detergent.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Soap?
                                                            
Gerry looks excited.
                                                            
                       GERRY
No, no, just hear me out. We can,
like, put glass beer bottles
standing up on the floor and
splash the detergent on the ground
            (MORE)

40.

                       GERRY (cont'd)
and they'll all slip in it... and
fall and impale themselves on the
bottles.
                                                            
Nate looks dumbfounded.
                                                            
                       NATE
What is this, Scooby Doo? Put that
shit down and find something
practical.
                                                            
Gerry triumphantly holds up a frisbee. Sean and Nate stare
at him.
                                                            
 
EXT. REHOBOTH - DAY
                                                            
The sun is up.

Only one or two zombies are walking around outside near the
dorm. There is trash all over the place and the campus looks
like a mess.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Chris, Nate, Gerry, John, and Caroline sit in the common
room in silence.
                                                            
Kadeem stumbles into the room wearing sweatpants and a
muscle shirt.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, what time is it?
                                                            
                       NATE
Like nine I guess. I don't know.
                                                            
Kadeem plops down in a chair. He lets out a huge yawn.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
I don't know how you guys are so
awake right now.
                                                            
                       NATE
I can't speak for anyone else, but
personally, I'm still kind of in
shock from the events of last
night.
                                                            
Kath and Faith walk in.
                                                            

41.

                       FAITH
Good morning everyone.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Yeah, if by good you mean being
barricaded inside a house with a
bunch of dicks.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Feel free to go outside Caroline.
                                                            
                       KATH
You guys, there's no need to
fight. We're all in this together.
                                                            
                       NATE
This isn't High School Musical,
Kath.
                                                            
                       JOHN
And I seem to remember you giving
shit to Nate and Becca last night
for making out.
                                                            
                       KATH
You're seriously going to make me
relive those memories right now?
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
      (to Kath)
What the hell is wrong with you?
                                                            
                       NATE
      (Under his breath)
A lot of things.
                                                            
                       KATH
      (to Nate)
What?
                                                            
                       NATE
What?
                                                            
Becca and Jacquie walk in.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Okay, everyone shut up. We need a
plan.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Has anyone tried their phone this
morning?
                                                            

42.

                       GERRY
The lines are all still down.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
So those things are outside and we
can't get in contact with anyone.
Awesome.
                                                            
Nate walks up to the window.
                                                            
                       NATE
Come look outside.
                                                            
Chris and John walk up to the window.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
So what?
                                                            
                       NATE
What do you see?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Nothing. Just trash and a couple
of those things.
                                                            
                       NATE
Exactly. A couple.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Don't tell me you want to leave?
                                                            
                       NATE
I just want to open the door and
check things out.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Don't be stupid Nate.
                                                            
Nate walks over to the door.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Dude, be careful.
                                                            
                       NATE
I'm just taking a peek.
                                                            
Nate slowly opens the door.

On the doorstep is the now zombified Asian Girl. She has
been eaten from the waste down and is sitting in a pile of
her own entrails.


43.

She reaches up to him with the one arm that she has left and
growls loudly, blood spilling out of her mouth.
                                                            
                       NATE
FUUUUCK THIS!
                                                            
Nate slams the door closed.
                                                            
                       NATE
Okay, I think we should stay here
for now.
                                                            
                       JOHN
If we plan on staying here for a
while we need supplies. Let's
think, what do we need?
                                                            
                       NATE
We have a whole golf bag full of
clubs that we can use as weapons.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Oh come on! Those are my good
clubs, I don't want to get brains
and shit all over them.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'll buy you a new set of clubs if
there's too much brains on them
for your liking, okay?
                                                            
                       NATE
So we have weapons. What else do
we need?
                                                            
Faith quietly raises her hand.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, you gotta cut that shit out,
Faith, just talk.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Shelter?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Well, considering that we're
already indoors I think that's
been covered... But good thinking.
                                                            
Faith smiles and nods.
                                                            
                       KATH
We need some noms.
                                                            

44.

                       CAROLINE
We need what?
                                                            
                       KATH
Noms... like "nom nom nom nom
nom..."
                                                            
Kath puts her hands up to her mouth and pretends like she's
eating.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
You mean food?
                                                            
                       KATH
I can't believe you've never heard
of that! You guys are nuts!
                                                            
Caroline snickers and looks to the rest of the group.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Can we feed this bitch to those
things yet?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Get your shit together guys, we
can't do that yet.
                                                            
                       KATH
Yet!?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Can we just get back to the
fucking point!? We need food or
we're gonna starve. Plain and
simple.
                                                            
Gerry triumphantly stands up, knocking over the chair behind
him.
                                                            
                       GERRY
I have an idea.
                                                            
                       BECCA
What is it?
                                                            
                       GERRY
Okay, this might sound a little
crazy, but hear me out. I think I
know how we can get out of this
whole situation.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Alright, now we're talking.
                                                            

45.

                       JOHN
Yeah, let's here it man.
                                                            
Everyone leans in, anxious to hear Gerry's idea.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Okay so in sci-fi movies this type
of thing usually starts with some
kind of virus, right?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I guess so, yeah.
                                                            
                       GERRY
So it all starts with one person.
Patient zero is the medical term
for it, but it all stems back to
one person.
                                                            
                       NATE
Okay...
                                                            
A beat.

Gerry looks around at everyone.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Don't you guys get it!? We need to
trace this thing back to patient
zero. If we eradicate the source
of the virus all of this stops.
                                                            
Everyone looks confused.
                                                            
                       JOHN
So... you mean like time travel?
                                                            
                       GERRY
Are you kidding me right now? No!
All we have to do, is find patient
zero, kill him, and then this is
all over... We need to kill the
king zombie and then all his
minions will fall!
                                                            
Everyone grunts, completely unsatisfied with Gerry's theory.
                                                            
                       SEAN
So you're implying that there's
some sort of caste system within
the zombie population?
                                                            

46.

                       GERRY
They're all connect...
                                                            
                       NATE
      (interrupts)
Okay everyone gather up your food.
                                                            
Gerry looks pissed.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Hey!
                                                            
                       NATE
Gerry, I love you, you're one of
my best friends, you're like a
brother to me... but sometimes
you're completely retarded. And
I'm sorry, but there it is.
                                                            
Gerry looks shut down.
                                                            
                       NATE
Don't be sad... just, just try to
grab whatever food you can find.
                                                            
                       GERRY
But...
                                                            
                       NATE
No, listen, it was a good try,
but, just no. I'm sorry.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - CHRISíS ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Chris digs through a bin underneath his bed and pulls out
various food, mostly candy and junk food.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - JOHN'S ROOM - DAY
                                                            
John opens a drawer in his desk and pulls out a couple
pouches of ramen noodles.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - KATH'S ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Kath opens her closet and takes out a huge bin of instant
coffee.
                                                            
 

47.

INT. REHOBOTH - GERRY'S ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Gerry opens up his fridge, smiles, and removes several
bottles of alcohol.
                                                            
                       GERRY
There you are.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Everyone reconvenes in the common room and places what
little they collected on the table.
                                                            
                       NATE
Is this it?
                                                            
Everyone nods.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
This is all we have in the entire
house? Look at this.
                                                            
Chris picks up each item as he speaks.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Uncooked ramen, candy bars, fruit
roll ups, green tea k-cups...
                                                            
Chris hands up a bottle of shampoo.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Who brought this down?
                                                            
                       FAITH
It says it's made with real fruit
juice for extra shine power.
                                                            
Chris closes his eyes for a moment.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Faith... we can't eat soap.
                                                            
                       FAITH
But there's fruit in it.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Faith... just no.
                                                            
Faith's face drops.
                                                            

48.

                       NATE
It doesn't matter, what else do we
have?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Gatorade powder... a shit load of
vodka, and...
                                                            
Chris holds up a box of condoms.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Condoms? Really?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Okay, so if we ration the food...
Say one cup of ramen and a granola
bar each a day, we have have
enough for...
                                                            
John counts the food.
                                                            
                       JOHN
... less than a day.
                                                            
                       SEAN
That doesn't seem like it's
enough.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Alright, everyone go check again
and try to find anything that we
could eat.
                                                            
Chris looks at Faith.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Not soap.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - BECCAíS ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Becca reaches up on top of her closet attempting to take
down a large bin.

Nate walks into the door frame and knocks.
                                                            
                       NATE
Hey. You need help?
                                                            
                       BECCA
I can't reach this bin. I think I
might have some pretzels in there.
                                                            

49.

                       NATE
Yeah, let me grab it.
                                                            
Nate walks over to the closet and takes down the bin with
ease.
                                                            
                       BECCA
I'm so short, I can't reach
anything.
                                                            
                       NATE
You wanna know a fun fact?
                                                            
                       BECCA
Sure.
                                                            
                       NATE
I'm the same height, weight, and
shoe size that Abraham Lincoln was
when he got shot.
                                                            
Becca laughs.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Why would you even know that!?
                                                            
                       NATE
I don't know, I just do.
                                                            
                       BECCA
You're like a rolodex of random
knowledge.
                                                            
                       NATE
It's kind of endearing though,
right?
                                                            
                       BECCA
I like it.
                                                            
They both share an awkward smile with each other, neither
knowing how long to look at the other.
                                                            
                       NATE
Listen, I know it's kind of a
weird situation right now... with
the whole... dead rising thing...
but I had fun with you last night.
                                                            
                       BECCA
I did too!
                                                            

50.

                       NATE
Really?
                                                            
She smiles.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Yeah! Well, I mean, until everyone
died... and stuff.
                                                            
They both laugh a little.
                                                            
                       NATE
Yeah of course... It's such bad
timing right?
                                                            
Becca rolls her eyes at the situation.
                                                            
                       BECCA
I know! It's like, come on!
                                                            
                       NATE
Just... awful timing.
                                                            
They both stare off into space, the expression leaving their
faces.

A beat.
                                                            
                       NATE
Well, maybe when this whole thing
is over we can go see a movie or
something?
                                                            
                       BECCA
Yeah! That'll be fun.
                                                            
                       NATE
      (playfully)
Well, assuming we both survive!
                                                            
Nate bursts out laughing.

Becca nervously chuckles once or twice.

Nate abruptly stops laughing and stammers trying to explain
himself.
                                                            
                       NATE
That was in such bad taste, I'm
sorry.
                                                            
                       BECCA
A little too soon probably.
                                                            

51.

                       NATE
I'm just nervous and sometimes I
make jokes but they're not funny
and it's...
                                                            
Becca grabs Nate and kisses him for a moment.
                                                            
                       NATE
Can we just make that a rule, that
if I'm just, like, incessantly
babbling, you start kissing me and
that'll be my cue to stop?
                                                            
                       BECCA
I can do that.
                                                            
They both smile.
                                                            
                       NATE
Yeah?
                                                            
                       BECCA
Yeah.
                                                            
                       NATE
Okay, because sometimes I get
nervous and I just start talking,
and especially now you're giving
me butterflies and also the whole
impending zombie thing and just...
                                                            
Becca starts to kiss him again.
                                                            
                       NATE
      (still kissing)
Thank you.
                                                            
                       BECCA
      (still kissing)
Mhmm.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - CHRISíS ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Chris, Sean, John, and Kadeem stand around in silence.

Gerry walks in and closes the door.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Okay, here's the situation: we
need food and we don't have any.
Even if we manage to get some
random scraps together, it's not
gonna sustain us for more than a
            (MORE)

52.

                       CHRIS (cont'd)
couple really uncomfortable days.
We need to do something now.
                                                            
Gerry looks extremely concerned.
                                                            
                       GERRY
You're not suggesting what I think
you're suggesting are you?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We need to go to the cafe.
                                                            
Gerry exhales loudly and laughs to himself.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Oh Jesus, that's a relief.
Pheeeew. I thought you were gonna
suggest eating one of us.
                                                            
Everyone looks dumbfounded.
                                                            
                       GERRY
I was gonna say, that'd be kind of
an ironic course of action...
given the situation.
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We need to go to the caf, get as
much food as we can, and come
back.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, if we're gonna do this shit we
need to do it now while it's
daylight and before other people
have the same idea.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Okay. Me, Chris, Kadeem...
                                                            
                       KADEEM
      (interrupts)
Whoa, hold up, I ain't doing this
shit.
                                                            
                       SEAN
You just said we should do this
now.
                                                            

53.

                       KADEEM
That was the general "we." Like we
as a group. As a collective unit
WE need to do this shit... while I
personally stay here and keep
watch.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Thanks for your help Kadeem.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Chris, Sean, John, Kadeem, and Gerry walk into the room to
meet up with the rest of the group.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Everyone listen up. We have a new
plan. We need to go to the caf to
get food. And we need to do it
now.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
How the hell are we gonna manage
that?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Three of us are gonna go with
backpacks, gather up as much food
as we can, and come back here.
                                                            
                       BECCA
That's way too dangerous!
                                                            
                       JOHN
What other choice do we have?
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
So who's even going?
                                                            
                       NATE
I'll go.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Me and Gerry are going too.
                                                            
                       BECCA
So what happens when you get
outside and all of those things
see you? There's too many of them,
it's a death sentence.
                                                            
The guys all look at each other.
                                                            

54.

                       JOHN
We actually kind of have an idea
for that too.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - DOORWAY - DAY
                                                            
Nate, Gerry, and Chris stand by the door. Chris has a
baseball bat and Gerry and Nate have golf clubs.
                                                            
                       NATE
      (to John, off
       camera)
You ready?
                                                            
The camera pans over to John who is wearing a skin tight
runners speed suit. He is holding an air horn.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'm the fucking captain of the
track team, of course I'm ready.
                                                            
He reaches back and picks a wedgie.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
As soon as we get outside you guys
slam the door behind us and don't
open it again until we're back
with the food, alright?
                                                            
                       KATH
Make sure to get me something
vegan.
                                                            
Everyone stares at Kath.
                                                            
                       GERRY
What?
                                                            
                       KATH
I'm vegan. I can't eat meat,
dairy, eggs, fish, or any other
animal byproducts.
                                                            
                       NATE
Are you fucking kidding me?
                                                            
                       KATH
Have you ever seen the way they
treat those animals?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Have you looked outside!?
                                                            

55.

                       KATH
Yeah, and you know what I see?
People eating meat.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
I really don't like you Kath.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We don't have time for this shit,
we'll get you some fucking cereal
or something.
                                                            
                       KATH
Make sure it's not honey oats or
anything though.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Why the hell not?
                                                            
                       KATH
It's inhumane the way they treat
the bees.
                                                            
Everyone looks around at each other in confusion.
                                                            
                       NATE
Just, I don't know, the collective
lack of perspective amongst this
group is ridiculous.
                                                            
 
EXT. REHOBOTH - DAY
                                                            
They swing the front door open, weapons in hand.

The half eaten zombified Asian Girl is still growling on the
ground.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Sorry babe.
                                                            
Gerry stomps down on her head with his work boot and it
splatters.

They all look grossed out.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Oh Christ, that's disgusting!
                                                            
                       NATE
I didn't think it'd explode like
that.
                                                            

56.

                       GERRY
Blah, it's so thick too.
                                                            
Gerry tries scraping some brains off on the cement.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You guys go!
                                                            
John sprints away from them, blaring the air horn and
screaming.

A few zombies hear the air horn and start following him.

He runs far away as Nate, Gerry, and Chris watch.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Let's go.
                                                            
They start running away from the house.
                                                            
 
EXT. COLLEGE CAMPUS - DAY
                                                            
John runs around past a set of dorms. He is being pursued by
a large hoard of zombies.

He turns a corner and runs into another large pack of
zombies.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Oh shit!
                                                            
John tries to run backwards but realizes that he is cornered
on all sides.

He looks around and notices a tree about twenty feet away.

He quickly runs to the tree and climbs it, barely escaping
from the creatures.

John continues to climb the tree until he gets to about the
height of the dorm's second story ledge, about twelve feet
off the ground.

John walks slowly on a branch and makes a leap onto the
ledge of the building. He climbs up to the top and stands
tall, looking down at the hoard of zombies.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Good luck getting me now you
bastards!
                                                            

57.

John triumphantly smiles for a moment, then his smile fades
as he looks around
                                                            
                       JOHN
Actually this kind of sucks,
doesn't it?
                                                            
A beat.

John nods his head.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah, this definitely sucks. I
feel like I'm waiting for FEMA.
                                                            
 
EXT. DINING COMMONS - DAY
                                                            
Nate, Chris, and Gerry run up to the cafeteria doors. Gerry
pulls on them but they're locked.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Shit!
                                                            
                       NATE
Where's the closest door?
                                                            
Gerry winds up and smashes the glass door in with his golf
club.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
That's great, that wasn't loud or
anything.
                                                            
                       GERRY
We don't have time for locked
doors. We're zombie killers!
                                                            
Gerry screams and runs through the doorway.
                                                            
                       NATE
That kid's got one hell of a
Napoleon complex.
                                                            
Chris and Nate run through the door.
                                                            
 
INT. DINING COMMONS - DOWNSTAIRS - DAY
                                                            
The area they run into has a wall full of mailboxes, a few
tables, and some chairs scattered around.

There are four zombies wandering around inside.

58.


The zombies notice them and start lurking towards them.

Gerry smacks one in the head with his club and it goes down.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Look, it's that creepy dude who
works the mail room!
                                                            
Gerry points to another zombie.

Nate runs up and smacks it in the head with his club.

Chris kills a third zombie with his bat.

Gerry runs up to the fourth and pushes it down. He picks up
a chair and stabs the zombie through the eye with one of the
legs.
                                                            
Gerry looks up at Nate and Chris who shrug approvingly.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
That was pretty ingenuitive.
                                                            
Two zombies stumble in through the hole in the glass door,
growling.
                                                            
                       NATE
Let's go!
                                                            
The three guys run into the stairwell.
                                                            
 
INT. DINING COMMONS - UPSTAIRS - DAY
                                                            
Nate, Chris, and Gerry run out of the stairwell and are met
with two zombies outside the cafeteria.

Nate and Chris smack them in the head simultaneously.
                                                            
They run towards two large double doors that lead into the
cafe.
                                                            
 
INT. CAFETERIA - SERVING AREA - DAY
                                                            
They slam the double doors behind them and lock them from
inside.

The serving area is completely empty.
                                                            
They stand silent for a moment surveying the room.
                                                            

59.

                       NATE
Let's get going.
                                                            
 
EXT. COLLEGE CAMPUS - DAY
                                                            
John still stands on the roof of the dorm. The group of
zombies below him has gotten bigger.
                                                            
He picks up a stick off the roof, no more than two feet
long, winds up, and throws it at the hoard below.

It hits a zombie in the head, but doesn't do any damage at
all.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Just kinda... bounced off his head
didn't it?
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Well, that sucks.
                                                            
 
INT. CAFETERIA - SERVING AREA - DAY
                                                            
Nate goes up to a rack that hold individual cereal
containers. He starts filing up his backpack with them.


Chris hops behind the deli and opens up a shelf below. He
removes some canned items and starts stuffing them in his
backpack.


Gerry walks up to the salad bar and inspects it for a few
moments. He removes his backpack, holds it up to the side of
the salad bar, and starts shoveling raw lettuce into it.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Hope this is vegan enough for you,
Kath.
                                                            
Nate hops behind one serving counter and finds a large bag
of uncooked pasta. He puts it in his backpack.


Gerry picks up a small bin of sliced tomatoes and dumps them
into his bag on top of the lettuce.

INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Sean looks through the barricade out the front window.

Kadeem walks up to him and talks softly.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, I gotta talk to you about
something.
                                                            
                       SEAN
What's that?
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Alright look, things are bound to
get intense up in here, right?
                                                            
                       SEAN
I think they're moderately intense
now.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
That's what I'm saying! If shit
goes down, I gotta have someone on
my side.
                                                            
                       SEAN
What?
                                                            
                       KADEEM
What would you say if I asked you
to make an alliance with me?
                                                            
                       SEAN
What, for when we vote people off
the island?
                                                            
                       KADEEM
I'm just saying, man, I need
someone to have my back.
                                                            
                       SEAN
This isn't Survivor, dude.
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Well, if you think about it, it
kinda is.

INT. CAFETERIA - SERVING AREA - DAY
                                                            
Gerry stands at the salad bar, zipping up his backpack that
is now full with lettuce.

He begins to walk away but there is a small shuffling noise
below the cabinet salad bar.

Gerry stops in his tracks and looks to where the sound came
from for a few moments.

Gerry looks over to Chris.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Psst!
                                                            
Chris doesn't appear to hear him.
                                                            
                       GERRY
      (whispered yell)
Chris!
                                                            
Chris hears him.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What?
                                                            
Gerry puts a finger over his lips to "shhh" Chris and then
points to the cabinet below the salad bar.
                                                            
Chris signals Nate to come over as well.

Nate and Chris walk over to where Gerry is standing.

Another slight shuffling sound is heard below the salad bar.
                                                            
Nate and Chris wind up with their weapons. Gerry bends down
next to the cabinet door.

He signals to Chris with his fingers, one, two, three.
                                                            
Gerry opens the door and ROBBIE, 43, a short, portly man in
a chef's uniform screams and jumps out with a meat cleaver.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Holy shit, take it easy!
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Who the hell are you guys!?
                                                            
                       NATE
Calm down, we're not those things!
                                                            

62.

                       ROBBIE
You the National Guard?
                                                            
Gerry, Nate, and Chris look at each other.
                                                            
                       NATE
Dude, no, what? We're holding golf
clubs, of course we're not - it
doesn't matter. We're nobody.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
What are you doing here?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We just came to get food, man.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Hey wait a minute... I know you,
you're the guy who cooks at the
Spitfire line, right?
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Yeah, so...
                                                            
                       GERRY
No, nothing, you just make good
beef stroganoff.
                                                            
Robbie nods and rolls his eyes.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Yeah, I know that.
                                                            
Something bangs loudly on the double doors that the three
guys locked when they first entered the serving area.
                                                            
                       NATE
Shit.
                                                            
Loud groans are heard from behind the door.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Come with me, I know how we can
get out.
                                                            
Robbie waddles away. Chris, Nate, and Gerry follow.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Where are we going?
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Service elevator. Both sides have
doors on it and on this floor we
can use it to get to the back of

                       ROBBIE (cont'd)
the kitchen.
                                                            
                       GERRY
What about those things?
                                                            
They run over to a large elevator door.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
We'll be fine, there's nobody back
there. It's sealed off.
                                                            
Robbie puts a key into the button panel next to the door.
                                                            
                       NATE
How do you know?
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
We don't have time to explain!
They're gonna break in any second.
                                                            
The elevator bell dings.

The elevator doors opens and a large hoard of zombies
dressed as chefs and servers jump out and attack Robbie.

Robbie screams as they mutilate him.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Run!
                                                            
Gerry, Nate, and Chris run to the double door. Something is
still loudly and forcefully slamming on it from the other
side.
                                                            
                       NATE
What do we do!?
                                                            
The group of chef zombies lurches towards them.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
No choice!
                                                            
Chris unlocks the double doors and swings one open.

There is only one zombie standing there.
                                                            
                       NATE
That's it?
                                                            
Chris smacks him in the head with his bat, taking him down.

INT. DINING COMMONS - UPSTAIRS - DAY
                                                            
They jump over the dead zombie's body and run to the
stairwell.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
He made a lot of noise for one
guy!
                                                            
 
EXT. DINING COMMONS - DAY
                                                            
The three guys run out of the dining commons where they had
earlier smashed the door.

They run past a few aimless zombies and kill them, smashing
them in the head with their weapons.
                                                            
 
EXT. COLLEGE CAMPUS - DAY
                                                            
John is still on the roof and the large hoard of zombies is
still below him.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Okay... redhead.
                                                            
John points to a redheaded zombie in the crowd below.
                                                            
John throws a small stick and hits her in the head.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Boom!
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Is she a redhead or a blonde
covered in blood?
                                                            
In the distance about a hundred feet away, Nate, Chris, and
Gerry take shelter behind a crashed car.
                                                            
                       NATE
Shit, he's fucking surrounded.
                                                            
                       GERRY
What do we do?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We can't take them down, they'll
destroy us. There's too many.
                                                            

65.

Up on the roof, John surveys the area.

After looking around for a few moments he notices the three
guys hiding behind the car.
                                                            
He jumps up and waves to them.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Guys! Hey guys!
                                                            
From behind the car Nate motions for John to stop yelling.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
He's gonna give us away.
                                                            
John continues to jump and wave.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Hey, I can't get down right now!
                                                            
Nate vigorously swipes his hand in front of his neck, making
the "stop it" motion.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah, no, I can't kill them all! I
don't have any weapons!
                                                            
Nate continues to quickly wave to John trying to get him to
stop yelling to them.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah, I can't understand what
you're saying to me! I didn't take
that sign language class!
                                                            
One of the zombies in the group below John looks over and
sees Nate frantically making gestures.

He breaks from the group and starts walking towards them.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Shit he saw us!
                                                            
                       GERRY
We can take just the one.
                                                            
Another four or five zombies follow the first one and head
towards Nate, Chris, and Gerry.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Hey you guys! I think they see
you!
                                                            

66.

                       GERRY
NO FUCKING SHIT!
                                                            
The entire hoard of zombies starts moving towards them.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We gotta go now!
                                                            
Chris, Gerry, and Nate sprint away from the pack behind
another building. The hoard follows them.
                                                            
As soon as the group of zombies leaves John's building, he
uses the tree to climb down to the ground again.

He surveys the area and sees nobody.

He creeps around to the side of the building and SLOWLY
starts poking his head around the corner.

He immediately runs into Nate, Gerry, and Chris. They all
scream in surprise.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Holy shit! Did you shake them!?
                                                            
                       NATE
Nope!
                                                            
Nate, Gerry, and Chris continue running. John follows.
                                                            
 
EXT. REHOBOTH - DAY
                                                            
The four guys run to the door.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Open it!
                                                            
                       NATE
I don't have my keys!
                                                            
                       GERRY
Shit, me either!
                                                            
                       NATE
John!?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah, I'm holding it in my ass!
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Shit, we hafta get in!

They all starts slamming on the door in a panic. After a few
moments the door opens and they run in, knocking over Kadeem
in the process.

John hugs Jacquie.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Oh my gosh, are you okay?
                                                            
She grabs him by the face.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Of course, I'm fine.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
I was so worried John.
                                                            
She hugs him for a moment.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Okay, actually you're pretty
sweaty.
                                                            
She backs off.
                                                            
A few feet away Nate walks up to Becca.
                                                            
                       BECCA
I'm glad you're safe...
                                                            
                       NATE
Yeah... yeah, me too.
                                                            
They hug.

In another corner of the room, Kath looks on in disgust and
shakes her head.
                                                            
                       KATH
Ugh, get a room.
                                                            
Chris puts his backpack down on the table in the middle of
the room.

The rest of the group gathers around.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I think we got enough food for at
least a week.
                                                            

68.

The group reacts positively.
                                                            
                       SEAN
What's it like out there?
                                                            
                       NATE
It's bad.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
How bad?
                                                            
                       NATE
Campus was as busy as usual except
this time everyone was a zombie.
                                                            
                       FAITH
You didn't find any survivors?
                                                            
Chris, Nate, and Gerry pause and think for a moment.
                                                            
                       NATE
Well... kind of?
                                                            
                       BECCA
What do you mean, "kind of?"
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Well he WAS a survivor... uh, but
now he's not.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Who was it?
                                                            
                       GERRY
Robbie from Spitfire.
                                                            
                       SEAN
That portly little chef?
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
That's awful!
                                                            
Gerry snickers a little.
                                                            
                       GERRY
It's kind of ironic isn't it?
                                                            
Everyone stares at him, confused.
                                                            

69.

                       GERRY
I just mean because he spent the
better part of his adult life
preparing meals... and then in the
end he became one.
                                                            
Everyone groans in disapproval.
                                                            
                       GERRY
What!?
                                                            
                       NATE
Not cool, man.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Way too soon dude.
                                                            
 
EXT. REHOBOTH - NIGHT
                                                            
The sun has gone down.

The window's in Rehoboth have been covered by some sort of
drapes and the only light coming from within in around the
corners.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
The whole group sits around in silence.

Sean looks out the window, barely cracking the blinds.

Caroline chews a piece of gum VERY loudly.

Kath stares at her for several seconds with a pissed off and
judgmental look on her face.
                                                            
                       KATH
Can you stop that?
                                                            
Caroline slowly turns her head to look at Kath.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
      (matter of factly)
No.
                                                            
Caroline looks away and continues chomping on the gum.
                                                            
                       KATH
Just close your mouth. I can't
even hear myself think with you
smacking your gum like that.
                                                            

70.

                       CAROLINE
Nobody can hear themselves think.
It's silent. That's what separates
it from talking.
                                                            
                       KATH
You're such trash.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
You know what? It's either gum or
a cigarette. And to be honest if I
had a lit cigarette I'd stick it
in your eye right now, so be
thankful.
                                                            
Kath abruptly stands up.
                                                            
                       KATH
It's a good thing I'm non-violent,
because if I wasn't I'd kick the
shit out of you.
                                                            
Caroline laughs.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Oh, really?
                                                            
                       KATH
      (matter of factly)
Yeah.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Oh, okay, that means a lot.
                                                            
                       KATH
Just count your lucky stars.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
      (sarcastically)
Kath, it's a good thing I don't
have a bazooka because if I did...
                                                            
She mockingly raises her fist in the air, shaking it at
Kath.
                                                            
                       KATH
All talk, Caroline, all talk.
                                                            
Caroline bursts out laughing again.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
No shit it's all talk you fucking
nutcase!
                                                            

71.

Kath starts breathing fast and angrily.
                                                            
John stands up, knocking his chair backwards.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Jesus Christ, would you guys shut
up!?
                                                            
                       KATH
She started it!
                                                            
                       JOHN
Oh, she started it? What are you,
five years old!? Are you guys
blind!? Look outside right now!
Our peers are being killed and
eaten! And then they get up and
try eating everyone else! And
we're arguing about gum? I'm so
sick of this petty bullshit.
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'm to the point where I'd rather
go outside and have a zombie rip
out my balls THROUGH my dick then
have to spend anymore time
listening to you guys argue about
this shit.
                                                            
John angrily starts pacing.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Like how fucking wrong have things
gone when you care more about
someone chewing gum then about
being cannibalized!?
                                                            
John lets out a huge breath and seems to calm down a little
bit. He plops down in a chair and shakes his head, not
looking at anyone.
                                                            
Gerry shoots up out of his chair.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Alright, this shit needs to stop
right now. Everyone need to snap
the hell out of this! This is no
fun, everyone's in a funk and it's
pissing me off!
                                                            

72.

                       SEAN
I feel like funks are more the
result of breakups... whereas our
moods are more shaped by the
apocalyptic nature of recent
events.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
      (to Sean)
Why are you always so well spoken?
                                                            
                       GERRY
Think of how much fun we were
having the other night! We need
that mood back. We need that
passion!
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Easier said than done, bro.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Okay, let me ask you this: what's
the difference between what we're
doing right now and a normal
Friday night?
                                                            
                       NATE
Mass casualties?
                                                            
                       GERRY
No.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Impending death?
                                                            
                       GERRY
No!
                                                            
Gerry puts his hands up in disbelief.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
The blood curdling screams of our
classmates?
                                                            
                       GERRY
What? No! I'll tell you the
difference.
                                                            
Gerry storms over to the kitchen area, bends down, and
removes two handles of vodka from the cabinet. He slams them
down on the counter.
                                                            

73.

                       GERRY
We need to get shit housed.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Are you serious?
                                                            
                       GERRY
Come on! We need to blow off some
steam! Throw caution to the wind
and enjoy ourselves a little or
else we're gonna lose our shit in
here. It's been like a day and a
half and we're already at each
others throats.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Poor choice of words.
                                                            
Everyone looks around at each other.
                                                            
                       NATE
      (matter of factly)
Fuck it, I'm down.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Seriously?
                                                            
                       NATE
Gerry's right, I mean look at us.
We're more worried about pissing
each other off than we are
about... surviving.
                                                            
                       JOHN
So we just forget about everything
outside and get blasted?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What if those things get in?
                                                            
                       GERRY
We already boarded everything up.
I mean let's face it, if they get
in here we have nowhere to go
regardless. If we're gonna die we
might as well go out doing
something we love.
                                                            
                       SEAN
That's kind of pathetic that
you'll feel satisfaction from
dying drunk.
                                                            

74.

                       NATE
He's right though. I mean the
doors and windows are boarded up,
we're gonna be stuck in here
either way. We might as well enjoy
ourselves.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, what the hell, I'll do just
about anything to distract myself
from this shit right now.
                                                            
Everyone seems to warm up to the idea, cracking slight
smiles.
                                                            
                       BECCA
Are we being serious right now?
                                                            
Gerry goes to the cabinet and removes several shot glasses.
                                                            
                       GERRY
I am dead serious.
                                                            
He pours out three shots and holds one in the air.
                                                            
                       GERRY
To making the best of a shitty
situation.
                                                            
Nate shakes his head, almost in disbelief of himself, and
smiles.
                                                            
                       NATE
That sounds as good as anything.
                                                            
Kadeem and Nate each pick up a shot glass, clink them
together and take the shot.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Alright, who's next?
                                                            
Everyone exchanges looks, smiling at each other.
                                                            
                       JOHN
What the hell, why not?
                                                            
Everyone gradually gets up and walks over to the counter.

Gerry pours out shots for everyone, and they all take a
glass.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Hey...
                                                            

75.

He raises his shot in the air and the rest follow suit.
                                                            
                       GERRY
To escaping for a little while.
                                                            
Everyone clinks their shot glasses.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
The entire group sits in absolute silence around a table
looking utterly miserable and bored. They all have cups in
front of them.

In the middle of the table there is a single can of beer
with a bunch of playing cards circled around it.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Who's turn is it?
                                                            
                       JOHN
You just go, Faith.
                                                            
Faith smiles wide.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Okay!
                                                            
Faith picks a card out of the circle and turns it over. It
is a three of clubs.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Three is me!
                                                            
Faith takes a sip of her drink.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Your turn Gerry!
                                                            
Gerry picks a card and turns it over. It is a ten of hearts.
                                                            
Everyone groans.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Goddammit. Fine, never have I
ever.
                                                            
Everyone holds up three fingers, albeit begrudgingly.
                                                            
                       GERRY
I don't know... Never have I ever
had a sister.
                                                            

76.

Becca, Jacquie, and Chris each put a finger down.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Your turn Nate!
                                                            
                       NATE
I don't know, I don't have
anything.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Good, then the round's over.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Just be creative! I know you can
think of something!
                                                            
                       NATE
Fine, never have I ever died
during a zombie apocalypse.
                                                            
Everyone grunts in disapproval.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Okay, game over.
                                                            
People begin getting up from the table.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'm going to bed.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Me too, man, this sucks.
                                                            
Everyone but Nate, Becca, Faith, and Gerry filter out of the
room.
                                                            
                       GERRY
The final four, alright. You guys
want to do some shots?
                                                            
None of them respond.
                                                            
                       GERRY
No that's fine, just pretend you
didn't hear me. I don't have
feelings or anything.
                                                            
Gerry angrily stands up and walks to the counter. He grabs a
bottle of alcohol and walks towards the hallway.
                                                            

77.

                       GERRY
If you guys need me, I'll be
hanging out with Captain Morgan
upstairs. HE'S MY REAL FRIEND!
                                                            
He storms off and slams his door down the hall.
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Is there really a pirate upstairs
with Gerry?
                                                            
 
EXT. REHOBOTH - DAY
                                                            
The next morning.

There are bodies and trash strewn about the area, the plants
have all been trampled and killed, and there is an overall
sense of despair.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - JOHN'S ROOM - DAY
                                                            
John and Jacquie are lying in bed with John spooning
Jacquie.

From another room we hear a muffled wretching sound like
someone is vomiting profusely.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - NATEíS ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Nate and Becca are asleep, spooning in bed. Nate is the
little spoon.

We hear another muffled wrenching sound.

Nate sluggishly opens his eyes, as if wondering if he is
dreaming. Hearing nothing, he closes his eyes again.

A beat.

Another wretching sound, BLAAAHHHH!

Nate shoots up in bed.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - CHRISíS ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Chris is lying in bed being spooned by Sean.


78.

We hear another loud wretching sound from another room.

Chris immediately opens is eyes. He turns his head and looks
unsettled by Sean.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Why are you in my bed?
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       SEAN
The buddy system?
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - BATHROOM - DAY
                                                            
Nate, Chris, and John each hold a golf club in their hands
and inch towards the bathroom stall. The rest of the group
(minus Gerry) stand back in the hallway.

From inside the stall we hear another loud disgusting puking
sound.
                                                            
                       NATE
Gerry?
                                                            
                       GERRY
Oh God... yeah?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
You okay bud?
                                                            
From inside the stall Gerry loudly vomits again.
                                                            
Nate pushes open the stall door. Gerry is lying on the
floor, leaning his arm and head over the toilet bowl.
                                                            
                       NATE
What's going on man?
                                                            
                       GERRY
I feel like a bag of assholes
right now.
                                                            
Gerry laughs to himself a little and then vomits again,
BLAHHH.
                                                            
                       GERRY
God dammit.
                                                            
Gerry flushes the toilet.
                                                            

79.

                       BECCA
Oh my God, he's infected!
                                                            
Gerry lifts his head up, confused.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Wait, what?
                                                            
                       BECCA
He's turning!
                                                            
                       GERRY
I am not!
                                                            
                       KADEEM
You got bit Gerry!?
                                                            
Gerry looks absolutely dumbfounded.
                                                            
                       GERRY
I never got bit you asshole!
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
He's turning and he's gonna try to
kill us!
                                                            
Gerry looks angry.
                                                            
                       GERRY
I'm just hungover!
                                                            
                       KATH
We need to take him out.
                                                            
                       NATE
Whoa, we need to be reasonable
about this.
                                                            
                       GERRY
You mean kill me!?
                                                            
                       KATH
He's not the person you knew
before Nate.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Yes I am you psychotic fucking
assholes!
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
It isn't safe with him here.
                                                            

80.

The group all seem to rally in favor of killing Gerry.

Gerry looks increasingly scared.

They start inching towards the stall.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, step aside Nate.
                                                            
                       KATH
He's too dangerous.
                                                            
                       NATE
All right everybody calm the fuck
down for one minute!
                                                            
Nate holds up his golf club to the group.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We need to deal with him before he
turns.
                                                            
                       NATE
Let's think about this okay!?
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Every second you spend thinking is
one more second for him to kill
us.
                                                            
                       NATE
We've all been together for the
past day right?
                                                            
They again agree.
                                                            
                       NATE
At that party the other night
people were turning within two
minutes of being bit. When did
Gerry have time to get bit?
                                                            
The group seems to agree.
                                                            
                       BECCA
How can we know for sure?
                                                            
                       KATH
We need to quarantine him.
                                                            

81.

                       GERRY
Oh, for Christ sake, just let me
puke a couple more times, chug
some Gatorade and I'll be fine!
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       NATE
If he turns I'll kill him myself.
                                                            
Nate lowers his golf club.
                                                            
                       GERRY
That's really comforting.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Do you promise you're not infected
Gerry?
                                                            
Gerry sluggishly raises two finger in the air.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Scout's honor Faith.
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Guys, I say we don't kill Gerry
quite yet.
                                                            
The group all nods and murmurs to themselves in agreement.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I think in retrospect we may have
acted hastily in that situation.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah, that really intensified
pretty quickly didn't it?
                                                            
                       BECCA
Yeah, I'm sorry Gerry.
                                                            
                       KATH
Me too.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Oh, okay then!
                                                            
Gerry sarcastically gives them a thumbs up and a big smile,
and then flips them off.
                                                            

82.

                       KADEEM
      (cheerfully)
Hey but you know what? We all
still alive, right? No harm no
foul right?
                                                            
Kadeem laughs.

Everyone else seems to follow suit until they're all
chuckling, except for Gerry who looks confused and pissed
off.

After a moment the laughter fades as they realize that they
almost just killed their friend.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Well... we, should probably give
our good buddy Gerry, a little
space to clean out his stomach.
                                                            
Everyone cheerfully agrees and leaves the bathroom,
murmuring their goodbyes as they walk away.

Nate stays behind with Gerry.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Thanks for that man.
                                                            
                       NATE
No problem, everyone's just
paranoid.
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            
                       NATE
So you're really not infected
right?
                                                            
                       GERRY
NO!
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - DAY
                                                            
The group, except for Nate and Gerry, sit around in the
common room, doing various things to keep busy.

John builds a house of cards, Sean looks out the window,
Faith gives Kadeem a back massage, ect.
                                                            

83.

                       CHRIS
Does anyone have anything good to
drink? I don't want alcohol or
water and I'm thirsty.
                                                            
Sean picks up a small bottle with an apple juice label from
near the window.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Here.
                                                            
He tosses the bottle to Chris.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Apple juice.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Thanks.
                                                            
Chris opens the bottle and takes a small sip. He makes a
weird face and smacks his lips, reacting to the taste.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
That's pretty tart.
                                                            
He puts the bottle back up to his lips.
                                                            
Nate walks in.
                                                            
                       NATE
Gerry's gonna be fine, he just -
why are you drinking my piss?
                                                            
Chris spits out the liquid from his mouth and gets it all
over Faith. She screams in a very high pitched voice.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What the hell!?
                                                            
                       NATE
Dude, why would you drink that,
that's so gross.
                                                            
Chris wipes his mouth.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Why the fuck did you piss in a
bottle!?
                                                            
                       NATE
I - well - desperate times call
for desperate measures.
                                                            

84.

Chris stammers for a moment, unable to speak because of a
combination of anger and confusion.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
So now we have to piss in
bottles!? What, we don't have
toilets anymore!? The fucking
drains in the shower don't work!?
                                                            
                       NATE
I was just trying to be
responsible.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
What the hell does that even
mean!?
                                                            
                       NATE
I didn't know what we might need
the toilet water for, so I didn't
want to pollute it.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
We need the toilet water for
pissing and shitting! That's what
toilets are for!
                                                            
Chris throws the rest of the piss bottle at the wall and it
splatters.
                                                            
                       NATE
Oh, that's real nice.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
If you didn't leave your goddamn
homemade piss grenades all over
the house this wouldn't be
happening.
                                                            
Chris paces around the rooms for a moment, stewing to
himself.
                                                            
                       NATE
Well, are you at least going to
apologize to Faith?
                                                            
Chris lunges towards Nate but John and Sean hold him back.
He struggles for a moment before breaking out of their hold.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Goddammit, I need to get out of
here! I can't take this shit
anymore. Living with you guys used
to be frustrating, but when you
            (MORE)

85.

                       CHRIS (cont'd)
add zombies to the mix it's
unbearable! I can't do this, I
mean look at us. We're stuck here
at each other's throats, there's
piss bottles lying around... we
almost just executed Gerry for
Christ's sakes.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Just calm down, man.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
No! I'm not gonna calm down! You
know how bored I was today? I took
a shit just for something to do!
                                                            
A beat.

Chris shakes his head.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I'm leaving.
                                                            
                       JOHN
What?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I'm losing my mind, dude.
                                                            
                       BECCA
You can't leave, Chris.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I have to. I need to get out of
this house... I don't know, I just
can't take this.
                                                            
Chris walks to the counter and starts shoving various
supplies into a backpack.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
You can't be serious.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I think it's pretty obvious that
nobody's coming to save us. If you
guys want to stay in here, pissed
off at each other all day, waiting
to either starve to death or for
those things to get in, that's
your choice, but I'm not gonna
wait to die.
                                                            

86.

                       KATH
I'm coming too.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Are you serious?
                                                            
Kath tears up a little.
                                                            
                       KATH
I can't be in this house anymore.
I'm too free of a spirit to stay
cooped up like this. And Nate, I'm
sorry, but watching you and Becca
together is just too much for
me... I can't bear the pain
anymore.
                                                            
                       NATE
There's something seriously wrong
with you.
                                                            
                       KATH
It's just too much.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Alright fine. Anyone else? Kadeem?
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Hell no! I'm black, black people
never survive this shit.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Anyone else?
                                                            
Nobody answers.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Fine, suit yourselves.
                                                            
Chris and Kath walk towards the door. Chris hands Kath a
golf club.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
If we find help, we'll send
someone back.
                                                            
                       NATE
Where are you gonna go?
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Anywhere but here.
                                                            

87.

                       BECCA
Chris, please don't go.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
I'm sorry... it's now or never. I
have to.
                                                            
Chris gives Becca, Faith, and Jacquie hugs.
                                                            
Kath gives Nate a huge embrace. He hugs back halfway.
                                                            
                       KATH
      (crying)
I'll never forget, Nate. I'll
always keep a piece of you with
me.
                                                            
Nate looks very confused.
                                                            
Chris and Kath walk towards the door.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Good luck guys... Last chance to
come with.
                                                            
Everyone stays silent.

Chris nods slightly.
                                                            
                       CHRIS
Alright... We'll be seeing you.
                                                            
Chris opens the door and he and Kath leave.

The rest of the group stands in silence for a few moments,
still taking in what just happened.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
      (shaken up)
We should never have let them
leave.
                                                            
                       NATE
I know, we shouldn't have let
Chris leave.
                                                            
A beat.

Gerry walks into the room, looking visibly better than
before.
                                                            

88.

                       GERRY
See, I told you guys I'd be fine.
I just emptied myself out and...
                                                            
Gerry looks around the room.
                                                            
                       GERRY
Hey, where'd Chris go?
                                                            
 
EXT. REHOBOTH - DAY
                                                            
The amount of trash and clutter has increased tenfold, and
the entire area looks trampled. There are several rotting
corpses on the ground, having been clearly torn apart.

A caption reads "One Week Later."
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - DAY
                                                            
The area is a mess. There are food wrappers and clutter all
over the place and it is very evident that they have not
cleaned in quite some time.

Caroline, Kadeem, Sean, and Gerry sit at the table playing
cards. Kadeem has a piece of paper and a pen next to him.

Sean tosses down his final card on top of a pile in the
middle of the table.
                                                            
                       SEAN
I'm out.
                                                            
The rest of the group drops their hands on the table.
                                                            
Kadeem picks up the pen.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Alright so that makes... three
hundred and seventy four wins for
Sean, two hundred eighty six for
me, three hundred thirty one for
Caroline, and... four for Gerry.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Alright, I need a cigarette.
                                                            
                       GERRY
That sounds like an awful idea.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Whatever.
                                                            

89.

                       KADEEM
I told you, those things are gonna
kill you one day, girl.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
It's the end of the world, I'll
take my chances.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Whatever you say.
                                                            
Caroline gets up from the table and walks to the door.

She looks through the eye hole and doesn't see any zombies
outside.
                                                            
                       GERRY
You're going outside?
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Well, I'm not smoking indoors.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Yo, make sure to stay on your
toes, alright? Don't get cocky
just cause we haven't seen any of
those things in the past couple
hours.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Thanks dad.
                                                            
Caroline picks up a baseball bat.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
If I'm not back in five minutes
I'm probably dead.
                                                            
She opens the front door and walks out.
                                                            
 
EXT. REHOBOTH - DAY
                                                            
Caroline walks outside, slowly.

She looks around and does not see any zombies in the
immediate area.

She sits on a small picnic bench in front of the house and
lights up her cigarette. She takes a huge puff and blows out
the smoke.


90.

In the distance behind her, a lone zombie with a broken
ankle stumbles in her direction. She does not notice.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Kadeem, Gerry, and Sean still sit at the table.

From outside Caroline lets out a blood curdling scream.

They all stand up and rush to the door.
                                                            
 
EXT. REHOBOTH - DAY
                                                            
Sean, Kadeem, and Gerry run outside.

Caroline fights with the zombie who is trying with all his
might to bite her throat. She puts her arm up to block his
mouth and he bites into her forearm. Caroline lets out
another high pitched scream.

Sean rips the zombie off of her and throws him to the
ground. Gerry smashes the zombie's head in with a baseball
bat.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Come on, get back inside!
                                                            
In the distance, a few more zombies start lurching towards
the group, having been alerted by Caroline's screams.
                                                            
The group of four run back into the house and slam the door
behind them.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - COMMON ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Caroline exposes her arm, a large chunk having been bitten
off.

Kadeem immediately removes his belt and ties it a little
higher up on her arm.
                                                            
                       SEAN
Goddammit.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Get me a towel or something! We
have to stop the bleeding.
                                                            
Gerry runs off.
                                                            

91.

Caroline starts crying and laughing at the same time.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
I guess you were right about
smoking killing me, huh?
                                                            
                       KADEEM
You're gonna be fine girl, we just
have to stop the bleeding.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Come on Kadeem... I know what this
means.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Don't talk like that, alright?
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Come on.
                                                            
                       SEAN
She's right Kadeem.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Shut the hell up Sean.
                                                            
Gerry runs back into the room with a large towel. Nate,
Becca, John, Jacquie, and Faith follow.
                                                            
                       NATE
What the hell happened!?
                                                            
                       SEAN
She's been bit.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Oh, no.
                                                            
John kicks something in anger.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
We hafta top the bleeding.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Kadeem.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
Help me put pressure on this!
                                                            
                       JOHN
Kadeem!
                                                            
A beat.
                                                            

92.

                       CAROLINE
He's right... I'm dead.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
No, don't say that!
                                                            
                       JOHN
We have to take care of her before
she turns.
                                                            
                       BECCA
We can't do that!
                                                            
                       JOHN
If we don't deal with this now
it's gonna be even harder.
                                                            
                       JACQUIE
Think about what you're saying!
                                                            
                       SEAN
We have to do something, you know
what's gonna happen.
                                                            
                       FAITH
Can't we just put a band aid on
it?
                                                            
Caroline holds up her arm and points to the huge chunk that
is missing.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
I really don't think it's that
easy Faith.
                                                            
                       KADEEM
We have to do something. We
could...
                                                            
Caroline shoots up out of her chair and interrupts Kadeem.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
      (interrupts)
There's nothing to do! I got bit,
I'm dead, end of story!
                                                            
She paces around the room.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
You all know it's true.
                                                            
Everyone looks at each other in silence.
                                                            
 

93.

INT. REHOBOTH - CAROLINEíS ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Caroline sits down on her bed. She is sweating profusely and
seems to have the shakes. She looks at if she has the worst
flu-like symptoms possible.

Everyone else stands in the doorway.
                                                            
                       JOHN
We're not going anywhere, alright?
We just need to figure out how to
deal with this. We'll be right
outside the door okay?
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
You don't need to suagar coat
it... you're figuring out who's
gonna be the one to kill me.
                                                            
                       NATE
Just.. sit tight for a minute
okay? We're not gonna kill you, we
just have to figure out what to
do.
                                                            
                       CAROLINE
Take your time... I'll be right
here when you figure it out.
                                                            
                       NATE
Everything's gonna be alright I
promise.
                                                            
She sarcastically gives them a thumbs up.
                                                            
 
INT. REHOBOTH - HALLWAY - DAY
                                                            
They close the door and lock it behind them.
                                                            
                       NATE
      (whispers)
Okay, so who's gonna kill her?
