FADE IN:

INT. INTERVIEW ROOM - DAY
                                                            
We appear inside of a white open spaced room in front of one
of our characters, SARAH. She is sitting on a BROWN STOOL in
the middle of the room. She begins adjusting her seat,
fixing her hair, etc. We start to hear a voice coming from
behind the camera. She responds.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
What grade are you in?
                                                            
                       SARAH
I'm a senior.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
Are you graduating this year?
                                                            
                       SARAH
I hope I am.
      (begins giggling)
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
We now shift characters. We are now talking to NIKO.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
How long have you been going to
school here?
                                                            
                       NIKO
I've been going here since
Freshmen year.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
Do you like it?
                                                            
                       NIKO
Do I have to be honest?
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
We are now talking to TIFFANY.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
What age were you when you lost
your virginity?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (kind of
       embarrassed)
Do I really have to answer that?
            (MORE)

2.

                       TIFFANY (cont'd)
      (does anyway)
Uhm, I was fifteen years old..now
I know that's young but it was
with somebody who I thought I
loved, so...it's not that bad.
It's not like I fucked some
forty-year-old married guy.
      (giggling)
I'm not that much of a slut.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
JUSTIN is now in the seat.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
      (answering the
       previous question)
Um...I was about sixteen years
old. It was with this random
chick, I couldn't even tell you
her name.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
ROY is lighting a cigarette.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
How long have you been smoking?
                                                            
                       ROY
How ever long you think I have.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
ZEKE and TED are sitting next to each other.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER
How long have you guys been
dealing weed?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
      (to Ted)
Jeez, how long has it been?
                                                            
                       TED
He's been doing it since seventh
grade and I started about
sophomore year I think it was.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
I'm pretty sure it was the end of
freshman year.
                                                            

3.

                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
Why'd you start dealing?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
I'm just a weed lover.
      (laughing)
I just love weed, man.
                                                            
                       TED
I'm doing this so I can get the
fuck out of this town.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
LUCY is now in the chair.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
Do you have a boyfriend?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Yes...well..kind of.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
I don't get it.. do you or don't
you?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Well....it's a bit complicated.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
STEVE, Lucy's boyfriend is next.
                                                            
                       STEVE
I've been dating Lucy now for
three years.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
Are you happy?
                                                            
                       STEVE
      (smiling)
That's a tough question.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
BILLY is next.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
Do you like high school?
                                                            

4.

                       BILLY
Are you joking? Who the fuck likes
high school?
                                                            
                                         FADE-TO-BLACK:
                                                            
MAIN TITLES.

During the opening credits we start to hear a conversation
between two of our characters, Roy and Billy. The screen
stays black. The credits roll.
                                                            
                       BILLY (v.o.)
Have you ever wondered about the
future?
                                                            
                       ROY (v.o.)
The future? Man, fuck the future.
If I were to sit around worrying
about my future all the time I
would end up just like every other
washed up loser we see hanging
around here.
                                                            
                       BILLY (v.o.)
So you're saying it's wrong to
think about the future?
                                                            
                       ROY (v.o.)
Not wrong just...stupid. I find it
really, really stupid. In fact
every single person who sits there
and worries about their future
constantly should really have no
confidence once so ever because
the fact that they sit there all
hours of the day wondering 'am I
going to pursue that dream? Who am
I going to marry? Am I going to
have a boy or a girl?' is stupid.
To me it's just all fucking
stupid. The way our generation
thinks, feels, looks and acts is
just a cry for help.
                                                            
                       BILLY (v.o.)
A cry for help?
                                                            
                       ROY (v.o.)
Did I stutter?
                                                            
                       BILLY (v.o.)
A little bit.
                                                            

5.

                       ROY (v.o.)
Listen here you smart mouth son of
a bitch nothing good comes from
thinking about your future.
Because unless you can't actually
see the future then there's no
point of actually picturing
something that just isn't real,
won't be real and will never be
real. Because we're in the town of
dead dreams, the nation of
failures, we are the United States
of nothingness, complete and utter
scum that walk on this Earth
thinking that they're better then
everybody just because they're
wearing the new Jordans, or got
the new iphone even though Steve
Jobs fucking died years ago; but
really in reality we're all just a
bunch of lost freaks who had shit
in our pants once in our lives,
and that thought will never leave
our minds.
                                                            
                                         FADE-IN:
                                                            
 
EXT. PARKING LOT/HIGH SCHOOL - MORNING
                                                            
We appear out in a busy parking lot in front of the high
school. We focus on Billy, leaning on a RED TOYOTA smoking a
cigarette. He's taking in what his best and longest friend,
Roy, just told him.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Okay so let me rephrase what you
just said..may I?
                                                            
We pan-to the left to see Roy coming into frame zipping up
his pants, he just urinated all over the parking lot, he has
a cigarette dangling from his mouth.
                                                            
                       ROY
If you must.
                                                            
                       BILLY
So what you're saying is that
dreams...are stupid?
                                                            
                       ROY
Completely stupid.
                                                            

6.

                       BILLY
Thinking about the future, saying
you want to be an actor or writer,
that's all bullshit?
                                                            
                       ROY
Complete bullshit. You can't name
five people who have potential in
being a star here, yet I can name
a shit load of wannabes who are
going to stay being wannabes. Like
Robert Pigskin.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
A flash brings us into a white open-spaced room, similar as
the one before, we see ROBERT PIGSKIN, standing in the
middle smiling. A flash hits him one more time. He's taking
his yearbook photo. He's super nerdy looking, has the
glasses, the bad comb over, the whole nine yards.
                                                            
                                         BACK-TO:
                                                            
                       BILLY
Yeah what about him?
                                                            
                       ROY
He wants to be on Broadway.
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (not getting the
       point)
And?
                                                            
                       ROY
Who the fuck wants to be on
Broadway?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Robert?
                                                            
                       ROY
No if he keeps thinking that
shit's going to happen he's going
to end up sucking dick for a place
to sleep.
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (sarcastic)
I just love your way of looking at
life.
                                                            

7.

                       ROY
      (chuckles)
Hey you may shit on me now for it,
but watch you'll see.
                                                            
                       BILLY
I'll see?
                                                            
                       ROY
You'll see.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Oh what so you had a big dream and
then it got crushed so now you're
Mr. I hate dreams?
                                                            
                       ROY
No I just see how dreams come then
go. I'm like a dream observer. You
see my Dad he always wanted to be
a comedian.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Really?
                                                            
                       ROY
Yes. So every day when I was a kid
he'd come home and say..
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK:
                                                            
 
INT. ROY'S CHILDHOOD HOME - EVENING
                                                            
We begin to see Roy as a child sitting down on the floor
listening to his FATHER speak. The father mouths the
narration.
                                                            
                       ROY (v.o.)
Roy boy, one day I'm going to come
home and I'm going to turn on that
television and I'm going to be on
there! Just picture it, seeing
your old man on the television
performing, making people laugh.
It's everything I've ever dreamed.
                                                            
                                         END FLASHBACK:
                                                            
 

8.

EXT. PARKING LOT - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
                       ROY
And do you think he got this
dream? Do you think I ever saw him
performing his jokes on TV? No. I
didn't. He failed. 'Where is he
now?' You may ask.
                                                            
                       BILLY
I'm not asking.
                                                            
                       ROY
He's in rehab. He always calls
saying he's going to get back on
top even though he's never been on
top he just thinks he's been on
top because of how much fucking
coke he snorted.
      (beat)
Now I'm not saying you can't
pursue a dream, I mean obviously
you can, look at all of those
fucks we see on TV.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Yeah but none of them have the
single most important thing a
person in that profession needs.
                                                            
                       ROY
What's that?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Actual talent.
                                                            
                       ROY
      (begins laughing)
I taught you well.
                                                            
The two share a nice laugh. The bell rings.
                                                            
                       ROY
Oh god, now it's time to go to
class. What do you got?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Science. What about you?
                                                            
                       ROY
Math I think.
                                                            

9.

                       BILLY
      (laughing)
You think?
                                                            
                       ROY
      (laughing along)
Yeah I think.
      (short beat)
God next week can't come any
slower.
                                                            
                       BILLY
I know graduation here we come.
                                                            
The two toss their cigarette buds at the same time. They
begin walking the same pace. We stop, they continue walking.
We then see two girls, Tiffany and Sarah coming into frame.
They're in the middle of a conversation. We begin following
them.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (excited)
So then she told me that Brad
Fisher might ask me out.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (kind of shocked)
whoa..that's like a super hot guy.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (also shocked)
I know, right?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (quite confused)
Who told you that again?
                                                            
                       SARAH
Belinda.
                                                            
Tiffany stops.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh my god, you're going to be
listening to Belinda now?
                                                            
                       SARAH
What? What's wrong with Belinda?
                                                            
Tiffany walks ahead of her.
                                                            

10.

                       TIFFANY
She lies about everything, you
can't tell that girl shit, Sarah.
She'll twist your words around,
spread the word to other people
and laugh once she sees you fail.
She's probably trying to get at
Brad as we speak.
                                                            
                       SARAH
But if she's trying to get at him,
why would she tell me he likes me?
And isn't she dating Niko?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I don't know Sarah, it's all apart
of her master plan.
                                                            
 
EXT. FRONT DOORS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
The two make it to the front doors. Tiffany opens the door
for Sarah and then lets herself in, behind her is SAMANTHA.
She is holding a numerous amount of text books and
notebooks, she runs to the door, she yelps.. "hold the
door!" it slams. She's stuck trying to open the door while
still maintaining holding the books. A JOCK comes by, he
opens the door, she shows a face of relief, his buddies cut
her off, they all go in and then once again shut the door.
She looks up at the heavens and lays out a big sigh as she
looks around to see no one in sight. The bell rings.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
 
INT. GIRLS' BATHROOM - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Continuing with Tiffany and Sarah's conversation, the two
are the only ones in the bathroom. They begin powdering
their noses, checking their makeup and so on.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Do you think Belinda would really
do that?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh honey...YES. She's a fucking
cunt.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (holding her ears)
Ow! I hate that word!
                                                            

11.

                       TIFFANY
What, cunt?
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (sarcastic)
No, the word what.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (giggling)
Why do you hate the word cunt? I
love that word.
                                                            
                       SARAH
I don't know, maybe because that's
the single most offensive word
I've ever heard come out of
anyone's mouth, and we're girls,
we're suppose to hate that word.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
We're suppose to hate that word?
Says who?
                                                            
                       SARAH
I don't know, Tiff, the girl who
made the word.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Whatever she's a cunt.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Can we just get back to Brad
please?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
If we must.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (dissapointed)
He's just a really cute guy and
hearing that he was going to ask
me out just made me...speechless.
      (beat)
Now that that might be a lie, I
feel...betrayed.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (trying to be
       understanding)
Sarah, there's plenty of other
guys out there.
                                                            

12.

                       SARAH
      (shows a fat smile)
Yeah but it's Brad.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
 
INT. LOCKER ROOM - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
BRAD is a typical good-looking jock. He's in the locker
room, talking to a group of dudes. We don't hear what
they're talking about, we just see them as Sarah narrates.
                                                            
                       SARAH (v.o.)
The way he acts, the way his hair
is, the way his abs can be seen
through his shirt, the way he
smiles.
                                                            
Brad breaks the fourth wall by looking at the camera, he
smiles and then winks.
                                                            
                                         BACK-TO:
                                                            
 
INT. GIRLS' BATHROOM - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh my god.
                                                            
                       SARAH
What?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
You want to fuck him!
                                                            
Sarah's face turns red.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (disgusted)
Oh my gosh, Tiffany.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh look at you, you're all red!
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (looking in the
       mirror)
No I'm not, I'm fine.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Sarah, are you trying to lose your
virginity to Brad Fisher?
                                                            

13.

                       SARAH
      (getting angry)
I said no, okay?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (gasps)
You totally do!
                                                            
                       SARAH
Do not!
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I don't believe you.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Well I'm telling the truth.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh bullshit, I know that look. You
look just like how I looked when I
wanted to have sex.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (caught)
Alright, fine, I guess I do have a
little....crush.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh yeah you have a crush alright,
it's called being horny!
                                                            
                       SARAH
Can you at least try to be a girl
for five minutes?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Me be a girl? You be a girl!
You're the one who wants to fuck
Brad Fisher.
                                                            
                       SARAH
I don't wanna....f anyone.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
F? Really? Sarah you're eighteen
act like it!
                                                            
                       SARAH
I'm sorry if I don't wanna cuss,
party and talk about my sexual
desires, it's just not my cup of
coffee.

                       TIFFANY
Jesus, you're starting to sound
like my Mom.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Whatever I need to go to class,
are you coming?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
There's only a week left of
school, going to class is
pointless.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Whatever, I'm going to class.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh come on, Sarah, don't leave!
Don't think just because you have
class that this conversation is
over!
                                                            
Sarah leaves. Tiffany rolls her eyes. She puts on some lip
gloss, poofs out her boobs, gives herself a sexy look
through the mirror and then leaves the bathroom.

                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
So tell me about this Brad guy.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Brad? I honestly don't know. I

Belinda came up to me and she told
me..

the narration, similar as before.

"Brad Fisher told me to tell you

And you believed her?
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (shruggs her
       shoulders)
What're you gonna do? I mean
that's just high school for you.
People just say stuff to have
people like me be all happy and
get my hopes up just for a laugh.
At least that's what Tiffany is
saying.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
Do you trust Tiffany?
                                                            
                       SARAH
Oh of course, she's been my best
friend ever since the sixth grade.
I love the girl. I mean yes she
can occasionally be super rude and
inappropriate but I learned to
deal with it. I mean that's what
friendship is all about right?
Dealing with their shenanigans.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
She's such a Debbie Downer. I mean
I always try to get her to act
like a typical girl but she won't
do it. I mean I've never met a
girl who's so devoted on doing
everything right.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER
What's wrong with doing everything
right?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I guess there's nothing wrong with
it, I mean she's a good kid but
we're in high school everyone
needs that moment in life.
                                                            

16.

                       INTERVIEWER
What moment?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
That moment of feeling free. Like
you can do anything in this world.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER
Have you tried to get her to go
out before?

Oh god...many times before.

Sarah is laying down doing homework, Tiffany comes in and
pushes all of the books onto the floor.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Stop working, Natasha's throwing a

that I love Sarah to death and
seeing her act this way really
makes me feel shitty because soon
I'm going to have to ditch her

INT. HALLWAYS - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
We follow Tiffany. She sees Zeke and Ted hanging out by
TED'S LOCKER from a distance. She smiles as she runs over to
them. She gets close, she begins tiptoeing about to scare
Ted, Zeke sees her as the two nod at each other. Tiffany
then grabs Ted's shoulders, screams and shakes him. He lets
out a big old yelp. Zeke and Tiffany begin to laugh at him.
                                                            
                       TED
      (terrified)
Jesus fuckin' Christ, Tiff, you
almost scared the shit out of me!
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (laughing)
You screamed like a little girl!
                                                            
                       ZEKE

You did have a very fenomen yelp.

Hahaha. Very funny.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY

So what's the deal with you guys
for tonight?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Same shit, different night.

Well have you guys heard about the
party?
                                                            
                       TED
What party?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Tony's party.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Preppy kid Tony or gay kid Tony?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Neither it's Football Tony.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
There's a Football Tony?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Yeah he's big - like super big.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Do you mean big as in his muscle
fat, fat fat, or penis fat?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Fat fat.
                                                            
                       TED
Has a Mohawk?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Is that a Mohawk?
                                                            
                       TED
I think I have an idea on who
you're talking about.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
I don't.
                                                            
                       TED
He's the guy that stuffed you into
his locker and called you a "pussy
faggot" last year.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Oh Tony..
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (giggling)
So are you guys gonna go?
                                                            

19.

                       TED
I don't know, what is it some end
of the year bash?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Yeah something like that. You
should come please!
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Not the first time she's said
that.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Fuck you Zeke.
                                                            
                       TED
      (giggling)
I don't know, maybe we'll go.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Alright well I guess I'm going to
class, text me.
                                                            
                       TED
You got it.
                                                            
Tiffany walks away. Zeke gives Ted a look.
                                                            
                       TED
What?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
She wants to fuck you.
                                                            
                       TED
Oh shut the fuck up with that shit
man.
                                                            
Ted shuts his locker. The two begin walking.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Oh look at the signs!
                                                            
                       TED
What signs?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
She always touches you, whenever
she comes to hang out with us she
targets her conversations to you
and only you, think about it man,
she wants us to go to that party
so she can finally make her move.
                                                            

20.

                       TED
Why is it with every girl that
comes to talk to me automatically
wants to fuck me in your eyes?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Because they do!
                                                            
                       TED
Whatever.
                                                            
Short beat.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
So are we going to that party?
                                                            
                       TED
Ugh, I don't know. I don't really
like going to parties.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Why?
                                                            
                       TED
Because every time we go to one it
gets shut down after the first ten
to fifteen minutes. It's just not
worth it.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
True. It's not like how it is in
the movies.
                                                            
                       TED
It's definitely not how it is in
the movies! I hate how the
industry does shit like that to
give dumb teens bad ideas to throw
lame parties to mimic the
"awesomeness" of the party they
saw in "Project X" or whatever
other type of garbage they're
releasing nowadays.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Are you telling me you've never
been to a memorable party?

I haven't. And you haven't either.

sitting on the couch smoking a joint.
                                                            
                       TED
Oh please, it was good until the
cops came in 3...2...1.
                                                            
The door gets kicked in. A series of cops come running in
screaming "freeze!" and "get down on the ground!" Zeke and
Ted put their hands up. They continue talking.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Okay, okay, well what about

We see another big party going on. Zeke and Ted are now
standing around sipping on their beers.
                                                            
                       TED
Are you kidding? This party was
the least successful.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
How? The cops didn't even shut it
down.
                                                            
                       TED
Yes but it did get canceled
because of...
                                                            
Ted points towards the STAIRCASE. We begin panning to the
right. We see the staircase, then hear a big scream.
Everyone stops dancing and looks around to see who's
screaming and what's wrong. The music stops as ASHLEY comes
running down the stairs with puke all over the top half of
her body.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
      (crying)
I can't fucking believe this!
Tiffany!

Okay I see what you mean on the
parties being lame due to the
short amount of time period, but
you gotta admit they do have its
perks.
                                                            
                       TED
Like?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Well the last party we went to we
made over two hundred bucks.
                                                            
                       TED
I guess you have a point there.
How much product do we have left
anyway?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
A whole jar full. We're good for
the summer.
                                                            
                       TED
I don't know, by the way you smoke
it could all be gone next week.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
      (giggling)
I'll slow down, I promise. I can't
wait for graduation though, we're
gonna make so much cash.
                                                            
                       TED
It still shocks me that you're
graduating.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Why?
                                                            

23.

                       TED
Because you're never at school,
and whenever you are at school
you're stoned off your balls.

Yeah well the best minds come from
the ones who smoke the herb.

Oh yeah, I'm sure what did you get
that from Benjamin Franklin?

Well, smartass, what should we do
now?
                                                            
                       TED
Go to class?
                                                            
The two laugh. They continue walking. They go off camera. We
focus on one of the classroom doors. The door swings open
with Lucy walking out with her friend, NATASHA.
                                                            
                       LUCY
God that class is so boring!
                                                            
                       NATASHA
I know, you'd think since it's the
last week of school they'd let us
do something fun for a change but
no!
                                                            
                       LUCY
I know, I mean like we're seniors,
we're getting the hell out of here
like why not cut us some slack?
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Hey speaking of fun, isn't it your
anniversary with Steve?
                                                            
                       LUCY
      (unenthusiastic)
Yes.
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Oh that was very enthusiastic, I'd
be jumping all over the place if I
kept a boyfriend for as long as
you have. How long has it been

                       NATASHA (cont'd)

                       NATASHA
I don't know how you do it.
                                                            
                       LUCY
It's not that tough.
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Oh that's what all of you couples
say.
                                                            
                       LUCY
It really isn't, you just have to
wait for that special someone.
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Fuck that, I'm young, dumb and
dumb these are suppose to be the
best years of our lives, why waste
it with the same person?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Thanks.
                                                            
                       NATASHA
But you got a good one.

                       LUCY
I don't know, it started out to be
just the little things. Like for
example his hair.
                                                            
                       NATASHA
His hair?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Yes, the first year we were dating
the mop of hair was cute. I loved
the way he wouldn't do anything
with it. But now..

Steve walks out of the bathroom from taking a shower. His
hair is all wet, he grabs a towel and dries it off.
Afterwards he doesn't fix it up he just let's it be all over
the place.

Lucy sits on her bed with an awkward face watching him do
this.

                       LUCY
Why don't you ever comb your hair?
                                                            
                       STEVE
Because I think combing your hair
is stupid. You know that.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Yes but...oh never mind.
                                                            
                       STEVE
No say it. What's wrong?
                                                            
                       LUCY
I..I just find it strange that
we've been going out for now three
years and I've never actually seen
you do something with your hair.
                                                            
                       STEVE
What is there some rule in being
in a relationship that says I have
to do my hair everyday?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Are you joking? You never do
anything with it, Steve. Never!

God this is a great way to start
off our anniversary..

Anniversary?

You see when I was a kid I
imagined high school to be the

instead I found myself settling
down already with this girl that I
barely even knew my sophomore
year.

Yeah but you guys have been dating
now for three years, those
feelings should be gone.

They're not. I don't want to be
this guy anymore.

the man of the relationship
realizes..

He's being a total douche and
isn't thinking clearly?

this is it for us. Our youth is

all look like Selena Gomez but

you start to lose interest in

don't date anymore.

About two or three months...

I know that's bad but...I just
haven't found that special
someone. Hell, I'm starting to

is along the same lines of Santa
Claus and The Easter Bunny. It's

I'm so sorry.
                                                            
She looks up as she sees that it's Brad. She obviously has
feelings, she begins looking at him up and down, fully
checking him out. She doesn't know what to say, so she
begins hesitating.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Oh sorry. Sorry. Um..

I'm sorry. I was just--your eyes
are just amazing.

Wow that was stupid. I'm. I'm
gonna go.

it's nothing. Yeah maybe I
imagined taking off his shirt and
licking his abs but that's not
wrong is it? I know that Steve
fantasizes about different women

night.

know this?

Well we're suppose to be honest
with each other right?

Yeah, I mean, I guess so. I just
never thought we'd be exchanging
erotic sex dreams, Steve.

Well do you want to hear it or
not?

I have a feeling you're going to
be telling me regardless.

You're right. So it was Megan Fox,
right? But with Jessica Alba's
body. Now if that's not an amazing
sex dream I don't know what is. So
she started slowly taking off--

Wait a second, wait a second, are
you really telling me a sex dream
of yours that doesn't even involve
me?

How is that stupid? It's exotic.

Exotic? Okay Halle Berry.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Really, out of all actresses you
choose her?
                                                            
                       BILLY
No I'd go with the gay community
like Neil Patrick Harris, Elton
John.

Raven Symone.

Raven Symone? From That's So
Raven?

                       TED
Yeah, she's gay.

Fuck off, that is such a god damn
lie.

Look it up, she came out last
year.
                                                            
                       BILLY

OK, that's enough with the gay,
can I just get some of the same
shit you gave me last time?

Uh.....Thunder Lightning?

EXT. BACK OF CIRCLE K - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Ted puts a few grams of marijuana inside of a CLEAR BAGGIE
and hands it to Billy. Zeke begins rolling a joint.
                                                            
                       TED
One bag of thunder lightning for
my man Billy.
                                                            
Hands it over.
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (smelling the bag)
God, what am I going to do without
you guys?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
      (lighting the
       joint)
Hey Big Black will still be here.

                       BILLY
No thank you. Last time I went to
Big Black's I witnessed a pinky
being bitten off.
                                                            
                       TED
That's just his way of relieving
stress.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Oh..I scream into a pillow. It's
less Goodfellas.
                                                            
Zeke begins coughing, he passes it to Ted. Ted smacks his
hand away, he rolls his eyes and passes it to Billy.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Can you believe this, man? Three
and half years he's been dealing
and he hasn't smoked once.
                                                            
                       BILLY
How can you do that?
                                                            
                       TED
Do what? Sell weed and not get
high?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Yeah, like I know if I were
selling I'd be smoking a good
majority of it.
                                                            
                       TED
Well maybe I would if Smokey the
Bear over here wouldn't be going
through all of it.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
I hardly smoke, man.
                                                            
                       TED
Are you fucking kidding? Dude, you
were born stoned.

Oh shut the fuck up man, let's
change topics of conversation man
I'm sick of this shit.

Whatever, so Billy what're you
planning on doing after the big g?

The big g?
                                                            
                       TED
Yeah....graduation?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Oh, I don't know. I'm not sure
with what I really wanna do yet.
I'll probably be working for my
Dad at the auto shop for a few
months until I can afford to get a
place of my own.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
That's cool man. You're really
gonna work for your Dad?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Yeah, why do you sound so
surprised?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Well the last time you spoke of
him, you were rambling on about
how much of a royal cock he is.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Oh that was ages ago, man.

Niko is showing a not-so happy look. He's sitting across
from Justin who's enjoying his lunch very much. Niko
continues giving him a nasty look until he notices.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
What?
                                                            
                       NIKO
You know what, bitch.
                                                            

43.

                       JUSTIN
I don't.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Stop fucking around, you know
what.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Oh you mean your girlfriend
leaving you for Tracey Buckingham?
      (begins giggling)
                                                            
                       NIKO
Thanks for the support man. I
really fucking appreciate it.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Hey listen to me, not every guy
gets this opportunity to say that
his best friend got dumped for a
lesbian. And she was a fucking
cunt anyways, you should be happy.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Happy? She fucking left me for a
girl, man. For Buckingham, out of
all people!
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Yeah that's a cruel detail to
erase from your mind. And I hope
it doesn't leave mine!
                                                            
                       NIKO
I seriously want something bad to
happen to you.
                                                            
Roy comes into frame. He slaps Niko in the back of the head,
then sits down.
                                                            
                       ROY
Hey bud. Heard your whore left
you..I mean hooker..I mean
tramp..I mean girlfriend. Sorry
these damn turrets.
                                                            
                       NIKO
      (sarcastic laugh)
Very funny. Who else did you blab
your fat fucking mouth to?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Not that much people, calm down.
                                                            

44.

                       ROY
Yeah he just sent a forward
message to everyone in school.
Including taking a picture of you
and putting it on Instagram,
Twitter and Snapchat saying...
      (pulls out phone)
"bitches wanna fuck? This yo guy,
he suppa' coo' and his girlfriend
dumped him for a lesbian.
#heartbreak".
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
      (laughing)
Perfect.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Why do you feel the need to be
such a prick?
                                                            
                       ROY
Oh come on cut him some slack.
He's trying at least a little.
                                                            
Niko stands up.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Oh shut the fuck up, both of you.
I'm leaving.
                                                            
Begins walking away.
                                                            
                       ROY
School?
                                                            
                       NIKO
This town.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Well I'm coming with you. Come on
Roy.
                                                            
Justin gets up and begins walking towards Niko.
                                                            
                       ROY
No I'm sticking around here, last
thing I wanna do is travel around
town with him.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Alright see ya around.
      (to Niko)
Wait up!
                                                            

45.

They leave. Roy finishes off whatever leftover food is on
their plates. Tiffany comes into frame. She sits across from
him.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Hey, where the hell are they
running off to?
                                                            
                       ROY
Niko is sick of this town so him
and Justin are supposedly leaving.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh yeah I heard Belinda dumped him
for Buckingham.
                                                            
                       ROY
The biggest dyke of the school.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Poor guy..doesn't her father own
like Burger King or something?

What do I look like their fucking
biographer?

      (laughing)
So what are your plans for
tonight? Are you going to that
party?
                                                            
                       ROY
What party?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Tony's party.
                                                            
                       ROY
Preppy kid Tony or gay kid Tony?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Neither. Jeez, does nobody know
who football Tony is?
                                                            
                       ROY
Football Tony? There's a football
Tony?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Yes. He's on the football team,
why doesn't anyone else know him?
                                                            

46.

                       ROY
I don't follow sports, you know
that.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Yes, you're Mr. I hate my life and
everyone else around me.
                                                            
                       ROY
That's right.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Well you still haven't answered my
question.
                                                            
                       ROY
What was your question?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Are you going to the party?
                                                            
                       ROY
      (groans)
Ugh, I don't know. Parties are
lame.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
How?
                                                            
                       ROY
Because it's a bunch of people
crammed in one house, drinking
whatever leftover tequila their
Mom left, getting into fights,
causing drama and not to forget
the loud obnoxious music.
      (big groan)
Thanks but no thanks.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
God, you're so lame.
                                                            
                       ROY
Thank you. I try my best.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (giggling)
Can you at least try to come?
                                                            
                       ROY
Alright, Tiff. I'll try to come.
OK?

Sarah comes into frame and joins the duo.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Oh my god, just give me my diploma
already! I'm sick of this school!
                                                            
                       ROY
      (giggling)
What's going on?
                                                            
                       SARAH
Nothing. I'm just sick of this
school and everyone in it.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
So have you talked to Brad?
                                                            
Sarah's face turns red. She begins shaking her head.
                                                            
                       ROY
Whoa, who's Brad?
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (embarrassed)
No one.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh please, it's Brad Fisher.
                                                            
                       SARAH

Tiffany..
                                                            
Her eyes begin to water.
                                                            
                       ROY
What do you have a crush on Brad
Fisher?
                                                            
                       SARAH
No. I don't.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
It's not just a crush. She wants
to fuck him.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (furious)
Tiffany!
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
What? It's not like it's not true.

                       SARAH
It's not!
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh shut up it totally is!
                                                            
Sarah gets up.
                                                            
                       SARAH
I can't believe how much of a
bitch you can be!
                                                            
Sarah storms off. Tiffany and Roy sit confused.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Did she just call me a bitch?
                                                            
                       ROY
I believe she just did.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Shit..I wasn't ready for that.
                                                            
                       ROY
Look I'm no Dr. Phil but maybe you
should go talk to her.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
You think?
                                                            
                       ROY
Yeah...but first can you spare
five bucks? I'm trying to get a
dime-bag after school.

EXT. PARKING LOT - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Sarah is walking away furiously with very little tears
coming out of her eyes, she can't believe what just happened
in there. Tiffany is seen behind her coming out of the
school. She calls out Sarah's name. Sarah turns around, she
begins walking faster. Tiffany catches up.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh come on can you stop being such
a baby?
                                                            
Sarah stops and throws all of her stuff onto the ground. The
tears fall out, she's not hiding them anymore.

                       SARAH
A baby? How am I fucking baby,
Tiffany? You just can't stop
making me feel uncomfortable can't
you?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Uncomfortable? Sarah, this is
life. You're going to have to deal
with it.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Oh so talking about how much I
wanna fuck Brad Fisher is life?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Yes! You know high school isn't
just about getting the grades,
it's about getting laid, having
fun and living your life. I mean
we're graduating and what have you
done that has been remotely
memorable? Hm?
                                                            
                       SARAH
Oh, I'm sorry if I wanna get into
a good college, Tiffany! I don't
have time to fucking party like
I'm Amanda Bynes!
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Sarah, we've been knowing each
other for seven whole years and
I've never had a single
conversation about boys with you!
Just about boys! So yes, since you
decided to tell me about Brad I
got a little excited!
                                                            
                       SARAH
So you had to just tell Roy like
that? I mean who else have you
told?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I haven't told anyone else! I...I
just want a fucking girlfriend.
You just can't do that, huh? You
gotta be the perfect Sarah, doing
everything right. What do you
think I like this? You think I
like being such a fucking slut? I
don't, but it's something I'm
stuck with, and every once in a

while I'd like to tell my best
friend these things but all she
seems to give a shit about is SAT
scores and if she made the goddamn
honor roll!
                                                            
Sarah is speechless.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
You know what, you can stay out
here and feel bad for yourself,
because I'm done.
      (begins walking
       back to the
       school)
Oh and by the way, you shouldn't
cuss, it makes you look stupid.
                                                            
Tiffany continues walking. Sarah kicks her bag. She sits on
the curb and buries her head into her knees.

Niko and Justin are in NIKO'S CAR parked. They're still in
front of the school. Niko shows a serious face, looking
straight ahead. Justin starts getting sick of it.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Okay I'm leaving.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Leaving? Where're you going?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Back inside. I could be eating my
fucking face off right now but
instead I'm out here doing nothing
but....nothing.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Oh come on, can you at least try
to be supportive for once?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
OK, you want me to give you some
advice? Then I'll give you some
advice, she's a fucking whore,
always has been a whore and always
will be a whore you're just too
fucking pussy whipped to actually

51.

                       JUSTIN (cont'd)
open your eyes and see that. You
want me to be supportive?
Supportive over what? You caused
this to happen to yourself buddy.
She cheated on you once already
with your bestfriend in fact, and
you still stuck by her, she dumped
you all the time, treated you like
her fucking dog and you still
stayed by saying "everything's
going to work out" well look
around you buddy, did everything
work out? No. Now I'm going back
to lunch, you're welcome to join
me after you're done feeling sorry
for yourself.
                                                            
Justin gets out of the car. He slams the door behind him.
Niko sits there taking in what was just said. He closes his
eyes and lets out a big sigh.

                       JUSTIN
I know I can be a dick, I'm a
proud dick, but I'm a special dick
to Niko because he needs to learn
how to grow up really. Now I know
you're probably sitting there
saying 'he needs to grow up?' but
I honestly think saying 'dick
pussy' is a hell of a lot more
mature then saying 'I love you'
when you're in high school.
Actually I rather tell girls 'dick
pussy'...I actually wanna change
the term from 'I love you' to
'dick pussy'.

Billy is sitting across from Lucy and Natasha. They're all
engaging in a conversation.
                                                            
                       BILLY
So then what'd she do next?

                       NATASHA
She took the money and ran. Shit
I'd do the same.

That's so fucked up.
                                                            
Roy comes into frame.
                                                            
                       ROY
      (to Billy)
Wanna go smoke a cigarette?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Yes, I was wondering when you were
gonna come by.
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Ew, you guys are still smoking
cigarettes?

Gross you're still jamming dicks
in your mouth?

Fuck you Roy.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Why are you such a prick?

Oh you know me Luc, I just can't
help myself.

Hey can you spare one of those
cigarettes?
                                                            
                       ROY
Well, well, well, would you look
at that Billy she wants to smoke
with us again.
                                                            
                       LUCY
      (smiling)
Can you just give me a fucking
cigarette?
                                                            

53.

                       ROY
Sure, if and only if you come with
me and my good friend Billy here
to smoke one with us outside.
                                                            
                       LUCY
OK, OK I'll go.
                                                            
                       NATASHA
You're really gonna go out there
with them and leave me alone in
here?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Oh come on Natasha, I've been
through enough today, let me have
a cigarette with my boys.
                                                            
Lucy gets up and walks away with the duo.
                                                            
                       ROY
Bye Natasha.
                                                            
She flips him off.

INT. PARKING LOT - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
The three are leaning on the same RED TOYOTA as the one
before, they're all smoking a cigarette individually.
                                                            
                       ROY
So where's your boy toy?
                                                            
                       LUCY
We've been dating for three years,
is he still 'the boy toy'?
                                                            
                       ROY
Yeah. He will always be the boy
toy to me.
                                                            
                       BILLY
I heard you two are in a fight.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Really? Where'd you hear that?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Lucy, this town is the size of
Roy's dick. Nothing's a secret.
                                                            

54.

                       ROY
Hey fuck you it's average.
      (to Lucy)
Tell him.
                                                            
                       BILLY
You've seen his dick?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Yeah it was at Natasha's party
junior year. We got him to take
three shots of tequila, then dared
him to suck his own dick. We
watched him try for a half an
hour.
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (laughing)
Was it average?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Sure.
      (laughs)
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (laughing)
Oh!
                                                            
                       ROY
Oh yeah and I'm sure Steve has a
gigantic penis!
                                                            
                       LUCY
He's pretty well hung.
                                                            
                       BILLY
OK can we switch topics?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Aw, what's wrong are you afraid of
penis size?
                                                            
                       BILLY
No it's just that once you reveal
penis size I start to see their
dicks and not their faces.
                                                            
                       ROY
That's weird.
                                                            

55.

                       BILLY
How's that weird? I'm sorry if I
wanna keep dick sizes out of the
equation.
                                                            
                       ROY
Are you telling me that since you
now know about my average size--
                                                            
                       BILLY
Small size..
                                                            
                       ROY
AVERAGE size penis that it changes
our friendship in some way?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Yes, actually, that is exactly
what I'm saying.
                                                            
                       LUCY
OK now let's talk about something
else.
                                                            
                       ROY
      (laughing)
OK let's talk about your problems
with your boy toy.
                                                            
                       LUCY
      (groans)
I don't wanna talk about that.
                                                            
                       ROY
Is it that bad?
                                                            
                       LUCY
It's pretty bad.
                                                            
                       BILLY
He didn't cheat on you right?
                                                            
                       LUCY
No, nothing like that, it's
just...oh it's nothing. Really.
It'll pass.
                                                            
                       ROY
OK, if you don't wanna talk about
it, we don't have to.
                                                            
Billy taps Roy on his shoulder.
                                                            

56.

                       BILLY
Oh I forgot to tell you.
                                                            
Billy reveals the bag of cannabis. Roy becomes very happy.
                                                            
                       ROY
When did you get this you son of a
bitch?
                                                            
                       BILLY
I cut class last period and went
to Circle K, I bumped into Zeke
and Ted, I thought I might as
well.
                                                            
                       ROY
Blah, blah, blah, get in the
fucking car, let's get stoned. You

                       LUCY
Um...no I'm gonna stay here. I'll
catch you guys later.
                                                            
                       ROY
Alright Lucy-goosey, see ya later.
                                                            
They all flick their cigarette buds. Roy and Billy get in
the car. Lucy waves to them as they pull out. They're gone.
She sighs. She turns around to walk towards the school.

INT. ROY'S CAR - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Roy and Billy are getting stoned while driving around town.
Roy's hitting the joint. Billy's looking out the window.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Hey what do you think my chances
are on getting Lucy?
                                                            
                       ROY
To what? Fuck you?
                                                            
He passes the joint.
                                                            
                       BILLY
No, dipshit to date me.
                                                            
                       ROY
Oh come on not this again, Billy.
                                                            

57.

                       BILLY
No man I'm being serious this
time. I'm..I'm going to ask her
out.
                                                            
Passes it back.
                                                            
                       ROY
Do yourself a favor - save the
embarrassment.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Oh come on, do you seriously not
see the sexual chemistry between
us?
                                                            
                       ROY
No Billy I don't because I'm not
slightly homosexual like you are.
                                                            
Passes it.
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (chuckles)
Can you at least try to be serious
for five minutes?
                                                            
                       ROY
I am being serious. Don't do it.
She's toxic.
                                                            
                       BILLY
How is she toxic?
                                                            
                       ROY
She just got out of a three year
relationship.
                                                            
                       BILLY
But she's not out of it yet..
                                                            
                       ROY
You just answered your own
question, Billy.
                                                            
Roy parks the car. He takes the joint out of Billy's hand,
hits it just a few more times and then flicks it out the
window. They get out of the car. They're at a COMIC BOOK
STORE.

Oh come on get some new fucking

                       ROY
Calm down tons-of-fun I'm just

                       BILLY
You and your goddamn comics. Don't
you think since you're graduating
that it's time to, you know, grow
up?
                                                            
                       ROY
What is this term "grow up" you
speak-ith of?
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (laughing)
You're going to end up living in
your Mom's basement.
                                                            
                       ROY
Oh and what are you going to be
doing that is oh so great, Sir
Billy?
                                                            
                       BILLY
I haven't thought about it yet.
                                                            
                       ROY
Exactly. Get your shit together
before you start giving me the
lectures.
                                                            
                       BILLY
I'm just trying to help.
                                                            
                       ROY
Well with all do respect fuck your
help.
                                                            
                       ANGRY MOTHER (o.s.)
Oh that's very nice.
                                                            

59.

We pan to the left to reveal ANGRY MOTHER holding her
two-year old baby.
                                                            
                       ANGRY MOTHER
You kiss your mother with that
mouth of yours?
                                                            
                       ROY
No that'd be called insets. I
strictly stick with hand stuff.
                                                            
                       ANGRY MOTHER
You need Jesus in your life.
                                                            
                       ROY
No I think that's the last thing I
need. Thanks for the suggestion
though.
                                                            
                       ANGRY MOTHER
That's what my cousin's sister's
friend said and then she met
Pasteur David and now she's
training to become a chef at the
new bakery on 7th street.
                                                            
                       ROY
Do we really need another bakery
in this town? We have like thirty
of them.
                                                            
                       BILLY
OK, Roy let's head out.
                                                            
                       ROY
No we're talking here, man. Can't
you see?
                                                            
                       ANGRY MOTHER
Shouldn't you two be in school?
                                                            
                       ROY
Shouldn't you be, you know, dead?
                                                            
                       ANGRY MOTHER
How dare you! My husband works for
the mayor!
                                                            
                       ROY
And my dick is white.

                       BILLY
OK, that's enough, I'm sorry we
disturbed you, we'll be on our

Oh fuck her she can suck my dick.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Is this really what you want to do
with the rest of your life?
                                                            
                       ROY
The rest of my life? Billy, I have
the rest of my life to think about
the rest of my life, so what's the
point about thinking about it now
when we can be doing fun shit like
cursing out a religious freak and
her fucked up baby?
                                                            
                       BILLY
You're just obsessed with causing
trouble aren't you?
                                                            
                       ROY
Billy, you've been knowing me for
how long now?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Too long if you ask me.

We see Sarah sitting in a quiet classroom. She is shading in
the colors on her desk. Tiffany enters the classroom. Sarah
turns around and rolls her eyes, pretending she doesn't see
her.
                                                            
                       TEACHER #1
Can I help you?

                       TIFFANY
OK can we stop this, please? Look
I know I can be a bitch, and I
know that you're not going to
apologize so I am. I'm sorry. OK?
You don't wanna fuck Brad Fisher.
OK?
      (beat)
Now...can...can we just forget
about this?
                                                            
Sarah stops and faces Tiffany.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (bland)
Fine. Whatever.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
      (giggles a little)
Fine? Whatever? Is..is that really
it?
                                                            
                       SARAH
OK I'm sorry too, jeez!
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
OK, what the fuck is your problem,
Sarah? I mean I'm fucking
apologizing to you and you can't
even accept it? How old are you?
                                                            
                       SARAH
Is that all?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
What do you mean 'is that all'?
                                                            
                       SARAH
Are you done? Can I go back to
class?

seven years of friendship is
wasted after one stupid argument.
I just can't believe that. It's
insanity.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
Is this is the end of your
friendship?

                       TEACHER #2
They want you in the office, bud.

                       ROY
Things are good. Yourself?

                       COUNSELOR
Good, good, things are...good. So
Roy we have to talk about

                       ROY
OK?
                                                            
                       COUNSELOR
Now I know this maybe difficult to
hear right now but things will get
better, I promise.
                                                            
                       ROY
OK?

Spit it out, what is it?
                                                            
                       COUNSELOR
You can't graduate.
                                                            
                       ROY
      (laughing)
Good one, no, that's not right.
I..I did my work, I passed, I did
my work, this is some kind of
mistake.
                                                            
                       COUNSELOR
You failed health freshmen year.
                                                            
                       ROY
So?
                                                            
                       COUNSELOR
It's a requirement.
                                                            
                       ROY
Are you kidding me?
                                                            
                       COUNSELOR
But hey where there's dark there's
some light, right?
                                                            

64.

                       ROY
What the hell kind of a expression
is that?
                                                            
                       COUNSELOR
What I'm trying to say here is
that there's an alternative.
                                                            
                       ROY
OK...what is this "alternative"
you speak of?
                                                            
                       COUNSELOR
You stay another year.

INT. BATHROOM - LATER
                                                            
Sarah is standing in the bathroom, wondering what went wrong
and why she's feeling so bad for Tiffany. Belinda comes out
from the stall behind her. She's stunned.
                                                            
                       BELINDA
Oh great. This is awkward isn't
it?
                                                            
                       SARAH
It's not awkward unless you make
it awkward.
                                                            
                       BELINDA
Look, I've had enough shit happen
to me today after Niko blabbed his
fat fucking mouth to the whole
goddamn school. I'm like a fucking
Kardashian or something. No one
will leave me alone. I mean...
      (begins crying)
It's not like it's my fault I want
to be this way it's just..I...I..I
wanted to...feel different you
know? I wanted to have a little
excitement in my life. I just...I
just...needed some fun. You know?
                                                            

65.

Sarah begins patting Belinda on her back, sympathizing for
her, which she shouldn't be, but she just can't help it.
Belinda begins crying on her shoulder. She rolls her eyes,
ultimately regretting this decision.
                                                            
                       BELINDA
What do you think I should do,
Sarah? You're smart.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Well....there's nothing you can
really do.
                                                            
                       BELINDA
God this sucks. I mean what'd I do
to deserve this?
                                                            
                       SARAH
Well, you are kind of a cunt.
                                                            
Belinda stops sobbing. She lifts her head up from Sarah's
shoulder. Sarah can't believe she just said that, but is
kind of relieved that she did. She smiles. Belinda is
confused.
                                                            
                       BELINDA
Excuse me?
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (laughing)
You're like a HUGE cunt! No one in
this school likes you and you
becoming a lesbian and choosing
Buckingham out of all people
doesn't really help your cause
like at all.
                                                            
                       BELINDA
I don't get it. I thought you were
nice.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Yeah I was. But what can I say?
You bring the fuck you out in me.
                                                            
Sarah walks out of the bathroom, proud of herself. Belinda
stays put and continues feeling sorry for herself.

EXT. PARKING LOT - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Roy is outside smoking a cigarette by himself. He looks like
he's about to cry. He holds it in. We see Niko come into
frame from a distance making his way over to him. Roy hears
his footsteps, as he turns around to see him. He quickly
wipes off the tears and sad guy act as he brushes his hair
back with his hands, stands up straight and hits his
cigarette.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Yo.
                                                            
                       ROY
Hey man. What the fuck are you
doing out here?
                                                            
                       NIKO
I'm feeling sorry for myself. You?
                                                            
                       ROY
I'm....doing the same exact thing.
                                                            
                       NIKO
That blows.
                                                            
                       ROY
Wanna cigarette?
                                                            
                       NIKO
I don't see why not.
                                                            
Roy pulls out his pack and hands it over to Niko as Niko
leans on the car with him.
                                                            
                       NIKO
      (lighting the
       cigarette)
So why're you feeling sorry for
yourself?
                                                            
                       ROY
I just got some shit news, my
friend. Some real shit news.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Really? How bad is it?
                                                            
                       ROY
It's pretty bad, man. Like I wanna
fucking shoot myself in the
goddamn head and hope that I never
see the light of day anymore.
                                                            

67.

                       NIKO
Do you wanna talk about it?
                                                            
                       ROY
I did for a second but now that
we're talking about it I kind of
don't want to talk about it.
                                                            
                       NIKO
But you haven't really talked
about it.
                                                            
                       ROY
But I was getting to it.
                                                            
                       NIKO
OK but getting to it doesn't
really mean that we've talked
about it.
                                                            
                       ROY
Alright, alright, let's fucking
drop it; let's talk about you,
what happened to you fleeing town
with Justin?
                                                            
                       NIKO
You really thought we were gonna
do that?
                                                            
                       ROY
No, but it sure as hell looked
like you thought you were.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Yeah well we were gonna go then
Justin decided to go all Mariah
Carey on me and tell me how
pathetic I am.
                                                            
                       ROY
You are pretty pathetic.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Why thank you.
                                                            
                       ROY
Oh come on Niko, did you really
think Belinda was going to last?
                                                            
                       NIKO
Uh, yeah, I'm in love with her.
                                                            

68.

                       ROY
You're in love? Still? Even though
she fucked you over by leaving you
for a lesbian? You still have
feelings?
                                                            
                       NIKO
What do you want me to say? It's
not like it's my fault I'm in love
with her.
                                                            
                       ROY
It is. It is your fault. There's
literally no one else you can
blame.
                                                            
                       NIKO
OK, OK, are you done giving me
shit?
                                                            
                       ROY
No. No I'm not. What the fuck is
going through your goddamn head,
Niko? Shit, I thought my head was
fucked man.
                                                            
Niko stands up and tosses his cigarette.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Whatever man, I'm going to class.
                                                            
                       ROY
You're fucked in the head, Niko!
Forget about that slut!
                                                            
We follow Niko walking towards the school. His face is full
of mixed emotions.

INT. INTERVIEW ROOM - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
                       NIKO
I'm in love. Is that bad? NO! Why
the fuck does everyone hate me for
loving Belinda? I mean we've been
dating since freshmen year, what
kind of sick human being gets
dumped and still stays tall?
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:

Belinda is sitting down with TRACEY BUCKINGHAM, who's a
complete dyke. She's got the short hair, the neck chain, the
goth make up, the whole nine yards. She stays silent the
entire time, showing a face that'll make anyone laugh.
                                                            
                       BELINDA
Is it weird that I went lesbian?
Of course. Do I care? No.
                                                            
                       INTERVIEWER (o.s.)
How's everyone reacting to this
sudden change?
                                                            
                       BELINDA
This whole school can suck my fat
fucking dick.

INT. HALLWAYS - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Zeke and Ted are once again roaming around the hallways.
Zeke is admiring the scenery as Ted is on his phone playing
"Angry Birds".
                                                            
                       ZEKE
I know this is going to sound
crazy but, I think I'm actually
going to miss this place.
                                                            
Ted stops playing and looks at Zeke with a shocked and
confused glare. We hear the sound of him losing in his phone
as he closes the game and puts his phone back into his
pocket.
                                                            
                       TED
Are you serious?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Yes, unlike you I can shed at
least a little light into the
situation.
                                                            
                       TED
What situation?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
You're problem with the school and
whatever the hell it's done to
you. That's your situation.
                                                            

70.

                       TED
Hey I hate this town more then
anything.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
OK I should've just kept my mouth
shut.
                                                            
                       TED
Why?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Because I'm sick of hearing you
ramble on about how much you hate
your school, your town and your
occupation.
                                                            
                       TED
Drug dealing is not my occupation.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Well then what is it?
                                                            
                       TED
I like to think of it as a way to
make money so I can start my new
life.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Your new life?
                                                            
                       TED
Yes sir.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
OK well let me ask you this. Where
do you see yourself going with
this "new life" of yours?
                                                            
                       TED
I don't know. I guess I haven't
really thought about it. But then
again I don't really care either.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
You don't care who you'll end up
with and where you'll end up
being?
                                                            
                       TED
That's right.
                                                            
Zeke chuckles.
                                                            

71.

                       TED
What?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
I don't think you'll really go.
                                                            
                       TED
Excuse me?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
You heard me I think you're all
talk.
                                                            
                       TED
All talk?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
ALL TALK.
                                                            
                       TED
Oh what the fuck ever, if anyone
here is all talk it's you.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Me?
                                                            
                       TED
Yeah, you're saying you like it
here now? Who the fuck are you
trying to be?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
I didn't say I like it jackass I
said I'm going to miss it. Sorry
if I'm going to be missing a place
that I've been living in my entire
fuckin life, Teddy. Sorry.
                                                            
                       TED
Well then what then, do you wanna
stay?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
      (hesitating)
I...I don't know man. I don't know
what the fuck I wanna do, I mean
we're only eighteen for Christ
sakes.
                                                            
                       TED
Who gives a shit about age?!
                                                            

72.

                       ZEKE
Look man I'm sorry if I don't
wanna leave this place as badly as
you do, OK? I'm sorry.
                                                            
                       TED
You're sorry? Oh Zeke. This is
what we've been talking about ever
since we've fucking started
dealing!
                                                            
                       ZEKE
No, that's what you've been
talking about ever since you've
started dealing. I've just been
agreeing.
                                                            
                       TED
Exactly. Why would you agree if
you don't actually fucking agree?
I mean who the fuck does that
shit?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
I thought if I didn't agree, you
wouldn't want to be friends with
me anymore.
                                                            
                       TED
Be friends? What are we on Full
House here?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Oh fuck you, man.
                                                            
                       TED
Fuck me?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Yeah fuck you. All you care about
is yourself and your dumb fucking
issues that aren't even really
issues they're just a bunch of
fabrications that you create so
you can sit around feeling sorry
for yourself. Look man I
understand this place sucks and
you're eager to leave, but fuck
man how about you think before you
assume you have your whole life
put together.
                                                            
Ted gets closer, getting up close and personal with Zeke.
                                                            

73.

                       TED
How about you fucking speak up
like a man, instead of keeping it
inside like a little bitch for
three years!
                                                            
                       ZEKE
Back away Ted.
                                                            
                       TED
      (shoves him a
       little)
No fuck you. Why would you say all
of that stuff if you weren't
really going to commit to any of
it, huh?
      (shoves him again)
Huh?
                                                            
                       ZEKE
      (pushes him away)
Get the fuck off of me! I'm sick
of this shit man! All I do is deal
with your shit, that's all I do
with my time! Your shit, Roy's
shit, Niko's shit, all of your
shit! Well no more, Ted, you hear
me clearly fucker? I'm fucking
done.
                                                            
Zeke walks the other direction. He stops. He takes a few
steps back.
                                                            
                       ZEKE
      (taking off his
       bag)
Oh and by the way, you can work by
yourself. I wouldn't wanna keep
you from getting out of here.
                                                            
Ted rolls his eyes. Zeke walks. He doesn't stop this time.
Ted calls out his name. He's not responding.
                                                            
                       TED
Ted. Ted. Get the fuck back here,
man!
                                                            
He's gone. Ted kicks the bag.

INT. CLASSROOM - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Sarah is sitting in class bored out of her mind. TEACHER #3
begins speaking about Lincoln and everything he's done. We
see Niko slowly opening the door, and trying to sneak in. It
doesn't pan out.
                                                            
                       TEACHER #3
Mr. Thomas it's great to see you.
                                                            
                       NIKO
      (caught)
Hello.
                                                            
                       TEACHER #3
I'll cut you some slack for being
a half an hour late since you're a
good student and you've never been
in trouble. But don't let it
happen again.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Thank you.
                                                            
                       TEACHER #3
Take a seat, turn your textbook to
page 387 you have a lot of reading
to catch up on. Now can someone
tell me where Lincoln was born?
                                                            
He sits in the desk in front of Sarah. He turns his text
book to the proper page and begins reading. Sarah begins
trying to get his attention.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Pssst.
      (taping him with
       pencil)
Hey. Niko.
                                                            
He finally notices. He turns around to see what's going on.
                                                            
                       NIKO
      (confused)
Yeah?
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (whispering)
Are you--
                                                            
                       TEACHER #3
Mr. Thomas, you're on a roll
today, I see.
                                                            

75.

                       NIKO
I'm sorry. It won't happen again.
                                                            
                       TEACHER #3
I'll take your word for it. Now
where was I? Oh of course..
                                                            
Sarah rolls her eyes as she thinks of a new plan. She has
one. She tares a piece of her paper, and beings writing a
note. She beings tapping Niko again. This time he's a bit
annoyed.

He slightly turns his head to see the piece of paper in the
center of her hand. He looks at it as she shakes her hand
basically saying 'take it already'. He finally takes the
note. He turns back around and begins unfolding. We see the
note in subtitles.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (subtitles)
Are you OK?
                                                            
Niko shows a confused face but a sincere smile as he
chuckles and begins writing back. He passes it back to
Sarah.
                                                            
                       NIKO
      (subtitles)
Yeah, why?
                                                            
She begins writing, and passes it back.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (subtitles)
I heard what happened..
                                                            
Niko finally realizes what she means as he loses his smile,
and becomes sort of angry. He turns around and responds:
                                                            
                       NIKO
      (whispering)
I'm fine.
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (whispering)
I think you're lying.
                                                            
                       TEACHER #3
Mr. Thomas!
                                                            
                       NIKO
      (fed up)
Oh my god, what?! What is it?
Please, for the love of god tell
            (MORE)

76.

                       NIKO (cont'd)
me what it is.
                                                            
The teacher is stunned.
                                                            
                       NIKO (CONT'D)
What's wrong? It seemed like you
had something to say..no? Okay,
then continue with your lesson.
Actually don't continue with your
lesson, it's almost the last day
of school and you're still talking
about Lincoln? Lincoln?
      (short beat)
Fuck Lincoln. He's been dead for
so many years that no one in this
classroom really gives a shit,
they're just thinking about Miley
Cyrus and what the fuck Jennifer
Lawrence did to her hair. But
unlike them do you know what I was
thinking this entire time you were
teaching us about Lincoln?
                                                            
The teacher shakes his/her head
                                                            
                       NIKO
I was thinking about my life and
how fucked up it is, and how
listening to my fucking teacher
preach about fucking Lincoln is
not going to make it any fucking
better!
                                                            
Everyone in the classroom is silent. They slowly turn their
heads to the teacher's direction to see what will be said.
                                                            
                       TEACHER #3
Are you done?
                                                            
                       NIKO
      (loud and proud)
Yes I am.
                                                            
                       TEACHER #3
Good. How do you feel?
                                                            
                       NIKO
Pretty great, actually.
                                                            
                       TEACHER #3
Good, good.

INT. FRONT OFFICE/WAITING ROOM - LATER
                                                            
Niko is sitting in the WAITING ROOM of the PRINCIPAL'S
OFFICE, being ready to get whatever punishment he'll get as
he shows a face of regret. "Why the hell did I just do
that?" is written all over his facial expressions and the
way he's sitting.
                                                            
Sarah comes into frame. She sits next to Niko but doesn't
say anything. Niko notices.
                                                            
                       NIKO
      (confused)
OK what is it with me that you're
so interested in?
                                                            
                       SARAH
      (smiling)
I don't know. I just...I feel bad
for you Niko.
                                                            
                       NIKO
      (rolling his eyes)
Oh god.
                                                            
                       SARAH
No really, look you don't deserve
Belinda.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Yeah and why do you say that? I
mean why does everyone keep saying
that? It's like everyone has a
better incite on my goddamn life
besides me.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Well let's see... you're nice, you
love people, and you love her.
                                                            
                       NIKO
OK..?
                                                            
                       SARAH
Belinda isn't nice, she hates
people, and...she doesn't love
you.
                                                            
Niko smiles a little bit, not a happy smile, just a smile
that basically says "thanks but no thanks" but Niko's too

78.

nice to actually say that. Instead of responding he looks
straight ahead, creating an invisible wall in between them.
                                                            
A NICE SONG begins playing as we begin backing out. The two
keep looking straight.
                                                            
During this time we begin to see all of our characters in a
montage moment.
                                                            
-- Roy in the bathroom looking at himself in the mirror.

-- Lucy in class dozing off.

-- Billy in the same class asleep.

-- Ted sitting on the bench. Looking towards the ground.

-- Zeke sitting on a staircase.

-- Tiffany in the bathroom checking her makeup.

-- Justin drawing a penis on his desk.

-- Natasha texting while in class.

-- Steve looking ahead anonymously, looking like he's not in
his own head, while a bunch of dudes are around him talking.

The bell rings. He knocks out of it. And goes to class.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
 
INT. CLASSROOM - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
We appear inside of a classroom, we see the TEACHER asleep
at his desk. We begin panning to the left to see the
classroom completely unsupervised, throwing paper airplanes,
throwing pencils up on the ceilings, writing on desks.
During all of the chaos, we begin focusing on a conversation
between Natasha, Tiffany, Billy and Justin.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
I can't believe Niko got dumped
for a lesbian.
                                                            
                       BILLY
How many fucking times are you
going to be saying this today?
                                                            
Justin begins laughing.

Poor Niko, he's such a good guy.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I know! I can't help but feel bad
for the guy. He's so nice and
she's such a bitch.
                                                            
                       NATASHA
I know! I mean who even knew
Belinda would go for the pussy?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I did.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Really?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Yeah there was this one time at a
party when she told me that she
wanted to finger me really bad.
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Are you serious?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Dead serious.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Well was she fucked up or
something?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Fucked up or not, look where she
is now. I mean what if I actually
let her do it?
                                                            
                       BILLY
What were you considering it?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
I'm not gonna lie, I sometimes
have the occasional lesbian
fantasy. Are you guys really
telling me you never imagined
sleeping with another man?
                                                            
                       BILLY
NO!
                                                            

80.

                       JUSTIN
Never have I ever thought about
chowing down on a meat stick, no.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh my god, you guys are such
liars.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Yeah I never thought about chowing
down on a meat patty, or stick,
whatever Justin said.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
I said stick, what does a patty
have to do with male genitalia?
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Let's get back to Niko. I really
feel bad for him.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Do you feel so bad that you'd suck
his dick?
                                                            
                       NATASHA
I actually would.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Really?
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Yeah I'm not gonna lie, hopeless
and pathetic guys turn me on.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh my god, that is so slutty!
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Yes, but it's a nice way to be
slutty.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
So you're saying you'd suck his
dick just because he's hopeless
and pathetic?
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Yes Justin, that is what I said.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
You know there was this one time I
got dumped for a Sweetish farmer.
                                                            

81.

                       TIFFANY
Oh okay, Mr. Premature Ejaculator.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Oh come on, that was one time!
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Are you kidding? It was
practically every time.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Oh yeah, I forgot you two had a
little thing going on in the
beginning of the year.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Yeah we did until she started
making things go all weird.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Me? It was you! How was it me?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
You kept tampons at my house!
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
So? How is that weird?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Every guy knows that once a girl
keeps tampons at your house that
means things are getting way too
serious.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Or maybe because I was over there
fucking you all the time and I
didn't want to bleed all over your
goddamn room.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Well that's what did it for me.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Well okay, then fine, you guys
wanna hear what did it for me?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Let's hear it.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
He asked me to have dinner with
his parents!
                                                            

82.

Everyone begins laughing at him.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Oh come on, I thought that's what
you wanted.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh I almost forgot to ask. Are you
guys going to Tony's party
tonight?
                                                            
                       NATASHA
Preppy kid Tony or gay kid Tony?
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
Oh Jesus Christ, does nobody know
who fucking Football Tony is?
                                                            
                       BILLY
Football Tony?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Doesn't ring a bell. All I know is
the prep and the faggot.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Oh come on, do you really have to
say the word faggot to represent a
homosexual?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Oh I'm sorry to offend you Harvey
Milk.
                                                            
                       BILLY
I'm just saying what's the big
deal if two dudes truly love each
other and want to be married?
What's the big deal?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
I'll tell you the big deal; if a
cat and a cat have sex a little
cat isn't going to be popping out.
                                                            
                       BILLY
What are you talking about? That's
exactly what happens when two cats
have sex.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Really? I thought they had to fuck
a cheetah or something.
                                                            

83.

                       BILLY
A cheetah? You think a household
pet needs to be fucked by a wild
animal in order for it to have
babies?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Is that wrong?
                                                            
                       BILLY
That is so wrong, I can't even
begin to explain to you how wrong
it is.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
 
EXT. OUTSIDE/IN FRONT OF HIGH SCHOOL - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Roy is laying on the grass, looking up at the sky. Lucy
comes into frame, blocking his view of the sky.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Roy-boy? What're you doing?
                                                            
                       ROY
Oh hey Lucy-goosey.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Why're you laying on the grass?
                                                            
                       ROY
I'm just thinking about things.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Oh I see.
      (lays down next to
       him)
So what kind of things are you
thinking about?
                                                            
                       ROY
I don't know. Do you ever have one
of those moments in life when you
feel like you've been working hard
all your life to find out you have
no meaning to it at all?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Sometimes.
                                                            

84.

                       ROY
Yeah well today's one of those
days.
                                                            
                       LUCY
But you're Roy, everyday for you
is one of those days.
                                                            
                       ROY
      (giggling)
I guess you have a point there.
                                                            
                       LUCY
So are you going to spit out
whatever's wrong with you?
                                                            
                       ROY
No. I don't think so.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Oh come on, you can tell me.
What'd you shit your pants again?
                                                            
                       ROY
Again? You're acting like that was
yesterday that was in the third
grade!
                                                            
                       LUCY
And I never told anybody!
                                                            
                       ROY
Oh so is that why whenever
somebody needed to go take a shit
they'd say "better go before I do
a Roy"?
                                                            
                       LUCY
      (laughing)
OK so I told a few people.
                                                            
                       ROY
A few people? Is the whole school
to you a few people?
                                                            
Lucy begins laughing hysterically. She rests her head onto
Roy's shoulder.
                                                            
                       LUCY
You don't have to tell me if you
don't want to.
                                                            

85.

                       ROY
Thanks.
                                                            
                       LUCY
But I'd really love it if you did.
                                                            
                       ROY
Oh come on Lucy, leave me alone so
I can feel sorry for myself.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Nope, we're getting up and
walking.
                                                            
Lucy stands up. She tries to get Roy up also.
                                                            
                       ROY
No, I wanna stay here.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Nope I won't allow it.
                                                            
Lucy grabs both of his arms and tries to get him up, she
can't do it.
                                                            
                       LUCY
God, you're like a thousand
pounds!
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
 
INT. HALLWAYS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Lucy is jumping around Roy trying to get him to speak. He
won't say a word.
                                                            
                       LUCY
God, you're being such a Roy
today!
                                                            
                       ROY
Then I should be completely fine,
right?
                                                            
                       LUCY
No! Just...open up, man. You'd
probably feel better if you
weren't building things up inside
like that. You'd probably be a
generally happy person.
                                                            

86.

                       ROY
Thank you Dr. Phil, for those kind
words. And by the way I love the
new hairstyle.
                                                            
                       LUCY
I'm being serious Roy.
                                                            
                       ROY
I am too. I'm just not that kind
of guy, you know this.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Sadly. What can I do to get you to
tell me? Hmm?
                                                            
                       ROY
OK, I got it. I'll tell you what's
wrong, if you tell me what's wrong
with you and your boy toy.
                                                            
                       LUCY
      (takes a beat)
OK.
                                                            
                       ROY
And..
                                                            
                       LUCY
Oh there's more?
                                                            
                       ROY
Yes there is. And, I'd really
appreciate it if you wouldn't tell
anyone.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Of course I'm not Justin.
                                                            
                       ROY
I don't know, your mouth is pretty
huge.
                                                            
                       LUCY
That's what she said.
                                                            
                       ROY
Really? Was that really the most
appropriate time for a 'that's
what she said' joke?
                                                            

87.

                       LUCY
There's never a bad time for a
'that's what she said' joke.
                                                            
                       ROY
That is not true at all.
                                                            
                       LUCY
OK, shut the fuck up and tell me
what your problem is, dammit.
                                                            
                       ROY
OK, OK, uhm.....I found out today
that...uhm....I'm not going to be
graduating.
                                                            
                       LUCY
What? What do you mean? There's
only a week left of school.
                                                            
                       ROY
I know.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Are you being serious? Like are
you just saying this just so I can
leave?
                                                            
                       ROY
I swear to God that I don't
believe in.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Oh my god, oh my god, Roy, I'm so
sorry.
                                                            
Lucy comforts Roy with a warm hug.
                                                            
                       LUCY
I can't believe this fucking
school man. That's so fucked up. I
think you can sue them for that.
                                                            
                       ROY
      (laughing)
I'm not suing anyone here! I'm
just...I don't know. I'm just
gonna do my own thing I guess.
                                                            
                       LUCY
Well are you going to stay another
year?
                                                            

88.

                       ROY
Are you fucking kidding me? I'm
not going to be some kind of
fucking super senior, I gave four
fucking years of my life to this
school and if they're not going to
pass me just because of a fucking
health course then they can suck
on my balls.
                                                            
                       LUCY
That's a very nice speech, I think
you took that from Martin Luther
King, Jr.
                                                            
                       ROY
Aw man, and I thought I was doing
so good on hiding it.
      (laughing)
So....your turn.
                                                            
Lucy takes a breath preparing to tell the story.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
 
EXT. HALLWAYS - LATER
                                                            
                       ROY
Can we just talk about this later?
                                                            
                       LUCY
I know. We still haven't talked.
                                                            
                       ROY
Do you think it's over?
                                                            
                       LUCY
Honestly?
                                                            
Roy nods.
                                                            
                       LUCY
      (puts her head
       down)
Yeah.
                                                            
Roy places his hand on her shoulder. She begins to let out a
few tears.
                                                            
                       ROY
Hey...hey..
                                                            

89.

She looks up at him.
                                                            
                       ROY
You're cool, dude. You're fine.
I've been knowing you for....way
too long. I know that you're going
to bounce back up no matter what
that fucking guy does to you.
                                                            
Lucy smiles. The two look at each other. A few seconds pass
by. They begin to move closer to each other. They're on the
edge of kissing, Roy turns his head the other way. Lucy is
confused.
                                                            
                       ROY
I better go.
                                                            
                       LUCY
      (confused)
What? Why?
                                                            
                       ROY
This isn't a good idea.
Billy....Billy has been waiting
for me. So I....I better go see
him.
                                                            
                       LUCY
OK...
                                                            
Roy walks away. Lucy stands hopeless, completely unaware of
what just happened.
                                                            
                                         CUT-TO:
                                                            
A BROWN PAPER TOWEL IS THROWN INTO A FILLED UP GARBAGE CAN.
IT MISSES.
                                                            
 
INT. GUYS' BATHROOM - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Niko and Steve are sinking the towels into the sink, and
tossing them into the trash can. They do one each throughout
the scene.
                                                            
                       STEVE
I just don't know anymore.
                                                            
                       NIKO
You don't know? What do you mean
you don't know?
                                                            

90.

                       STEVE
I just don't know. I mean we're
graduating, this is the time to
loose our fucking minds. Not
sitting around watching "The
Notebook" until eight-thirty, then
going to sleep by nine thinking
you're gonna get laid but really
you're just giving her head and
she's leaving you with nothing but
a hard on and a bad case of blue
balls.
                                                            
                       NIKO
So you guys stopped having sex?
                                                            
                       STEVE
YES! And I'm loosing my fucking
mind.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Well have you talked to her about
it?
                                                            
                       STEVE
      (laughing)
What're you kidding? Niko, you've
been with Belinda for how long?
Talking to your girl about not
having sex is a ticking time bomb.
                                                            
                       NIKO
So you're just gonna dump her?
                                                            
                       STEVE
Niko, we've been dating for three
years.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Which is one of the many reasons
why you should stay with her.
                                                            
                       STEVE
Yes but we're in high school
dating a girl for three years is
like fifteen years of marriage.
                                                            
                       NIKO
So what do you want do?
                                                            

91.

                       STEVE
I don't know, man. I just need
some space for a while. Is that
too much to ask?
                                                            
                       NIKO
Space before graduation? That's a
bit fucked up don't you think?
                                                            
                       STEVE
Of course, but if I'm gonna do it,
it's now or never.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Now or never? What is somebody
putting a gun up to your head and
forcing you to dump her?
                                                            
                       STEVE
      (laughing)
Would you stop giving me so much
shit?
                                                            
                       NIKO
No. I won't. I love Lucy and I
love you, if you two break up that
means I'm going to have to take
her side.
                                                            
                       STEVE
Why?
                                                            
                       NIKO
Because that's the way it works, I
knew her first.
                                                            
                       STEVE
So you're saying if I dump her,
you're dumping me?
                                                            
                       NIKO
You started the chain.
                                                            
                       STEVE
      (groaning)
God, this is why I never wanted a
relationship.
                                                            
                       NIKO
Why do you even wanna dump her?
Lucy is great.
                                                            

92.

                       STEVE
Have you dated her?
                                                            
                       NIKO
No.
                                                            
                       STEVE
Then you won't ever know.
                                                            
They leave the bathroom.

Well you're like the dude with the
biggest vagina in school, what do
you think I should do?
                                                            
                       NIKO
Well let's see... you wanna break
up with her, but you don't want to
officially break things off, am I
right?
                                                            
                       STEVE
Yes.
                                                            
                       NIKO
You want a way to still be
faithful but still see other
people?
                                                            
                       STEVE
Yes.
                                                            
                       NIKO
You want to have a three-way with
one of her friends?
                                                            
                       STEVE
Sure..
                                                            
Niko slaps him in the back of the head.
