EXT. JIMMY'S FRONT YARD - NIGHT
                                                            
Austin pulls up with John in the car too Jimmy's house.
There is loud music playing from the house.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Alright, I'm gonna ask one more
time, and again, I want you to
know I do not care what the answer
is. Have you done this before?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yes.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
What's your favorite drink?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Alright I lied.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
      (exits car)
Full of shit.
                                                            
John exits the car and Austin and John walk up to the front
door.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
      (rings door bell)
You're definitely going to throw
up.
                                                            
Nico answers the door obliterated and drunk
                                                            
                       NICO
Good evening officers.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
It's only seven o'clock.
                                                            
                       NICO
Who cares man. The night is young.
      (whispers)
I already have an erection.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You're wearing sweat pants.
                                                            

2.

                       NICO
      (looks down)
Oh shit.
                                                            
 
INT. LIVING ROOM (JIMMY'S HOUSE) - NIGHT
                                                            
John and Austin walk in to see the house filled with drunk
teens partying the night away. Jimmy rolls over to Austin
and John, clearly drunk.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (laughing)
Guys. I can't even stand up right
now.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You looked pretty sloshed buddy.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
You don't. Have you drank before?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yes.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
No.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Let's get you bitches some beers
then. In the cooler in the back.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Thanks jimbo.
                                                            
John and Austin start walking towards the cooler. They pass
two cute girls, and John looks down avoiding all eye
contact. Austin sharply elbows John.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Were you born without nuts? The
hell is wrong with you?
                                                            
                       JOHN
It took meet seventeen years to
make friends, I'm not the most
social type.
                                                            
They reach the fridge, and Austin cracks open a beer and
hands it to John.
                                                            

3.

                       AUSTIN
Well we got a cure for that. Side
effects include nausea, disyness,
upset stomach, and having to want
meaningless sex with women.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Are you sure about this?
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Do you want to die a virgin?
                                                            
John looks down and immediately starts drinking.
                                                            
 
INT. LIVING ROOM (JIMMY'S HOUSE) (LATER) - NIGHT
                                                            
John is seen totally drunk singing "Livin' on a Prayer" by
Bon Jovi on Rock Band, with Austin, Rob, and Nico playing
instruments. He is loud and horrible, and stumbling while he
sings.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (singing)
Take my hand, and we'll make it I
swear. (Burp) Woah- Oh, Living on
a Prayer.
                                                            
The song ends and a bunch of drunk people clap and cheer.
John slams down the microphone and begins laughing. He see's
Jimmy and runs over. They speak in slurs.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Jimmy. Wait, I got to tell you
something.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
What is it?
                                                            
                       JOHN
I just wanted to let you know,
that if we were x-men, you'd be
Xavier, and not because of the
fucking chair. You're like, I
don't know. You're the glue, the
glue man.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (Smiling)
I don't know what the fuck you're
talking about.
                                                            

4.

                       JOHN
I just wanted to say I love you
man.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (laughing)
You drunk asshole.
                                                            
Jimmy begins to roll forwards and runs into John's toe.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (screaming)
TITS!
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Oh God man. I'm so sorry. Here,
here, here, take the chair.
                                                            
Jimmy flops out of the chair and face down onto the floor,
and John quickly sits down in the wheel.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Why's it so sweaty?
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (mumbled)
That's my home you bitch!
                                                            
                       JOHN
You're like a turtle, and you just
invited me into your shell.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (mumbled)
That makes us turtle brothers!
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (slurred)
I've never had a brother before.
                                                            
Rob stumbles over to the scene.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
      (slurred)
Hey... What the hell is going on?
                                                            
                       JOHN
We're turtle brothers!
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Natalie needs a beer pong partner.
                                                            

5.

                       JOHN
      (stands/slurred)
I volunteer as tribute. Please
return Jimmy his shell. Thanks
Jimmy.
                                                            
There is a pause and Jimmy doesn't respond. Rob crouches to
check on him.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
      (slurred)
He's just asleep.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Oh thank God. Make sure he doesn't
drown in his own vomit or
something like that.
                                                            
John walk over to a table to see three strangers John has
not met before. At one side is LANE and his girlfriend
KASEY, who are totally sober. On the other side is NATALIE,
also sober.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Did some one need a beer pong
partner?
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Yeah right over here. Natalie.
                                                            
John delicately grabs her hand, kneels and kisses it.
Natalie starts laughing hysterically. Kasey elbows Lane.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Why don't you ever do that?
                                                            
                       LANE
If you ever become a queen I will.
                                                            
                       JOHN
My name is John.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (laughing)
Well it's a pleasure to meet you
John.
                                                            
                       LANE
I'm lane. This is my girlfriend
Kasey.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Hey, how's it going?
                                                            

6.

                       JOHN
Ready to play. Who go's first?
                                                            
                       NATALIE
We do. Drunk's disadvantage.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (slurred)
You're drunk?
                                                            
                       LANE
      (laughing)
She's talking about you dude.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'm not drunk! Ping pong ball
please.
                                                            
Natalie hands John a ping pong ball and totally overshoots
the entire table.
                                                            
                                         SOME TIME LATER.
                                                            
The game is still going on and most of the cups are gone.
Everyone is a little bit drunk and are in mid conversation.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
So you really climbed the tower on
shady beach?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Barely. I shook my way the whole
time.
                                                            
                       LANE
That's pretty high.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah it's even wore when you're up
there. The wind shakes the hell
out of you.
                                                            
                       KASEY
You know I never really see you
around the school. Do you do any
sports?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Not really. Just boci ball.
                                                            
                       LANE
I thought that was a special
education program.
                                                            

7.

                       JOHN
It's corollary.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Well wouldn't you just win all the
time?
                                                            
                       JOHN
That's not what it's about.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Is it like a chaperon thing?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Kinda. Really it's just to be
involved. Most of these guys just
want to feel like everybody else,
and that includes hanging out with
everybody else. Plus, I Kinda like
it. You would never meet a nicer
group of people.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
That's actually really sweet.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah. Up until a little bit ago, I
didn't really belong anywhere else
anyways.
                                                            
                       KASEY
      (SCREAMING)
OH SHIT!
                                                            
Kasey jumps onto the ping pong table as a mouse scurries
across the floor. Austin runs over to see what is going on.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Kasey! What the hell is going?
                                                            
                       KASEY
There's a fucking mouse in here!
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
A mouse? John come on. We got a
mission. (Yelling) ALL ABLE-BODIED
MEN WILLING TO RISK THERE LIVES
FOR BEER, PUSSY, AND THE PURSUIT
OF HAPPINESS MAKE THEMSELVES
PRESENT IN THE LIVING ROOM!
                                                            
                                         MOMENTS LATER.
                                                            

8.

Austin is seen holding an American flag with a lamp shade on
his head talking to all the drunk men at the party, who are
lined up with their arms behind their backs, including John,
Nico, and Robbie.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Alright everyone. We have a mouse
in the house. I promise if Jimmy
was conscious for this, he would
not stand for it.
                                                            
                       NICO
Jimmy can't stand.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
It's a figure of speech you idiot.
Listen, everyone knows, ebola
comes from one place. Mice! And we
are not going to risk this party's
safety. We're gonna find it, flush
it down the toilet, and KILL IT!
In that order. Autobots, roll out!
                                                            
All the guys disperse and John immediately stumbles over to
Natalie.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (smiling)
Don't you have a mouse to catch?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Actually I have a girl to protect.
                                                            
Natalie lightly pushes John.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (giggling)
You're such a dork.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Well am I a cute dork?
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Absolutely adorable.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Well when you say it like it makes
me sound like a pussy.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Well why don't you do something
manly?
                                                            

9.

                       JOHN
I just might have too.
                                                            
Screams are heard from the back ground and you see Robbie
and Nico stumble into each other and fall down as the mouse
runs away.
                                                            
                       NICO AND ROBBIE
MOUSE!!!
                                                            
Natalie screams and her and John jump up onto the couch.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
GET IT!
                                                            
John nervously looks at the rat and sees a couch pillow
beside him. He picks it up, and body slams off the couch
onto the mouse with the pillow on his stomach. He lands on
the mouse and all is silent. He lays on the pillow and
everyone crowds around John in a circle.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (whispering)
SHHHHHH! I have the mouse.
                                                            
Everyone uproars in cheers and John smiles.
                                                            
 
INT. LIVING ROOM (JIMMY'S HOUSE) (LATER) - NIGHT
                                                            
John and Natalie are seen taking a shot and both are
outrageously drunk.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Oh my God! How many was that?
                                                            
                       JOHN
I totally lost count.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (flirty)
I thought you were good with
numbers.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'm not really that smart. Just
nerd.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (laughing)
I thought you were gonna break the
table when you jumped off the
couch like that.
                                                            

10.

                       JOHN
First time I ever body slammed a
mouse.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (sarcastic)
Was it really?
                                                            
                       JOHN
First time I ever drank actually.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (Sarcastic)
I'm in shock.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Aren't you Ms.Judgmental.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Only to the people I like. (pours
a shot). To a night of first
times.
                                                            
They both take a shot.
                                                            
                       JOHN
So how did you end up at the
party?
                                                            
                       NATALIE
I'm actually neighbors with Jimmy.
I live right across the street.
                                                            
                       JOHN
It truly is a small world.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
My parents aren't home, if you
wanted a tour.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (laughing)
And you're being serious.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (serious)
I couldn't think of anything else
I'd rather do.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (pause)
Well I guess it's one hell of a
tour.
                                                            

11.

                       NATALIE
Well what are you waiting for?
                                                            
They stand up and she takes John's hand as she leads him
towards the exit of the door. John passes Austin, and he
gives John a nod. They walk outside, and the front door
shuts.
                                                            
Lane stands in the living room next Kasey.
                                                            
                       LANE
Did that kid just leave with
Natalie?
                                                            
                       KASEY
He seems like a nice guy.
                                                            
                       LANE
More like a faggot.
                                                            
                       KASEY
You're such an asshole.
                                                            
                       LANE
What?
                                                            
                       KASEY
You know I know exactly what. My
best friend, and you get all pissy
just because you'd rather be
plugging her.
                                                            
                       LANE
Alright babe. Listen, 'cause this
is coming from the bottom of my
heart. No one likes to be second
place, but you--
                                                            
                       KASEY
Oh my God. You are a fucking
idiot.
                                                            
Kasey walks away.
                                                            
                       LANE
Wait babe! Come back!
                                                            
 
INT. JIMMY'S HOUSE (BEDROOM) - NIGHT
                                                            
Austin and Robbie carry Jimmy and place him onto his bed.
                                                            

12.

                       JIMMY
      (drunk)
I didn't need your help.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
It's because you're drunk, not
handicapped.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Why didn't you just get Fallon Jr.
to do it?
      (beat)
Someone had to mention the
elephant in the room eventually.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
He's at Natalie's house.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
In one day! I swear for socially
impaired introverts that girl is a
slip-n-slide.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
She has to notice.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
She's drunk. This kid has no idea
what he's in for.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Will you two smile for Christ
sake. This is a good thing.
Despite the rat-pancake in my
carpet, I'm having a really fun
time.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Yeah, but I don't know. How do we
tell him?
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Don't. He can't know.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Why not?
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
How would you feel if you found
out you were some replacement?
                                                            

13.

                       JIMMY
Finding another handicapped kid
with a cock half as long as mine?
Good luck.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
I'm being serious.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
He's not a replacement. They're
just... similar.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
But it's gonna make everything
so... difficult.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
I think you're over stating the
problem. Plus you're the one who
had to pluck his ass out of
traffic.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
What should I have just let him to
die?
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Maybe you're just buying time.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (angry)
What the hell does that mean?
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
I like the kid, but if he's like
Fallon, we all know how that story
ends. I don't want to go through
that again.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
That won't happen again.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
What if we can't stop him?
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Then I'll break his legs.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Jimmy's right. This won't happen
again. We're a family.
                                                            

14.

                       JIMMY
      (sarcastic)
Can you tuck me in?
                                                            
Austin kisses Jimmy's forehead. Jimmy starts screaming and
laughing, and Robbie starts cackling.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (saracastic)
I'm drunk! I am not in the state
of mind. Robbie!
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Don't look at me.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
God, you guys are like my gay
parents.
                                                            
The laughing dies down and Robbie and Austin start to exit
the room.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Hey guys
      (Austin and Nico
       stop)
I love.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
I love you guys too.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Like I said. We're a family.
                                                            
 
EXT. DECK (JIMMY'S HOUSE) - NIGHT
                                                            
Natalie walks from the house onto the deck to see Nico
smoking from a hookah pen.
                                                            
                       NICO
You look upset.
                                                            
                       KASEY
You're perspective.
                                                            
                       NICO
Not really. When you're dating
Lane, it pretty much comes with
the package.
                                                            
                       KASEY
He's not that bad of a guy.
                                                            

15.

                       NICO
Are you really being honest with
yourself on that?
                                                            
                       KASEY
      (irritated)
What's your big problem with him?
                                                            
                       NICO
I don't think you remember what he
did to Robbie's brother.
                                                            
                       KASEY
      (beat)
I'm sorry. I forgot. How is Luke?
                                                            
                       NICO
Well he doesn't leave the house
anymore. After getting your ass
kicked like that, you start
finding reasons to stop trusting
people.
                                                            
                       KASEY
He would do anything to take it
back.
                                                            
                       NICO
No he wouldn't. You would, because
you desperately want him to be
this great guy for reasons I don't
understand.
                                                            
                       KASEY
You know who the hell do you think
you are making all these judgments
call? You didn't have to invite
him.
                                                            
                       NICO
We didn't. You honestly think we
could just ask him to leave
without him sending somebody else
to the hospital? We just don't
want any trouble.
                                                            
                       KASEY
He's not a maniac.
                                                            
                       NICO
No. He's just an asshole.
                                                            

16.

                       KASEY
Listen, I'm sorry about what he
did, but I'm trying to get past
it.
                                                            
                       NICO
There's nothing for you to get
past.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Then why are you giving me such a
hard time?
                                                            
                       NICO
Because I think you could do
better.
                                                            
                       KASEY
      (beat)
I can handle him.
                                                            
                       NICO
      (walking inside)
Sounds romantic.
                                                            
 
INT. LIVING ROOM (JIMMY'S HOUSE) - NIGHT
                                                            
Nico enters the house to where the party heavily continues.
Robbie leans against the wall with a beer in his hand. He
listens in on Lane, who is playing beer pong with CAMERON.
                                                            
                       LANE
I swear to God he's over there
right now.
                                                            
                       CAMERON
That's gotta burn you up.
                                                            
                       LANE
He'll probably piss his pants the
second she touches him.
                                                            
                       CAMERON
Don't take it too hard. She was
pretty hammered. She'll wake up
and hate her vagina. It was like
that thing she had with that guy
who hung himself. What was his
name?
                                                            
Cameron begins snapping.
                                                            

17.

                       LANE
Fallon!
                                                            
                       CAMERON
That's it! Fallon. Jesus they even
look alike.
                                                            
                       LANE
Even better probably on the end of
a rope. Natalie always did have a
thing for faggots.
                                                            
Robbie walks over and puts his hands on Lane and forcibly
pushes him against the edge of a table. Cameron begins to
move forward, but Nico and Austin run over behind Robbie.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
What the hell is going on?
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
He was talking shit on Fallon.
                                                            
                       LANE
I'm sorry. I didn't mean to tease
your favorite chandelier.
                                                            
Robbie pushes more, but four big guys stand behind Cameron,
ready to fight.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Rob. It's not worth the police.
                                                            
                       NICO
Forget about him. He's garbage.
                                                            
Robbie and Lane stare each other down, and Robbie let's Lane
go.
                                                            
                       LANE
Well as much fun as that was, I
think I'm gonna bounce. Hang with
you later.
                                                            
Lane and his friends begins walking towards the door.
                                                            
                       LANE
Someone go get Kasey.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
We should kill that guy.
                                                            

18.

                       NICO
If Jimmy was awake we'd all be
going to jail.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
John porking Natalie is the best
pay back we can get, right Austin?
Hey Austin, you alright?
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Yeah I'm fine. Let's just have a
good time.

                       NATALIE
      (frantic)
John. John!
                                                            
John wakes up confused. He turns around and suddenly
remembers what happened. He panics at Natalie's panic.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (frantic)
Did we have sex?!
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (frantic)

John jumps out of bed in his underwear.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (frantic)

      (frantic)
No Shit!
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (frantic)
Oh my God! Why are we yelling.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
My dads here! You have to go
through the back.
                                                            

19.

                       JOHN
I'm about to vomit.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Please don't.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I won't I won't. (grabs his
clothes) Your dad is going to kill
me.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Go though the screen door in the
back. It goes straight to Jimmy's.
                                                            
John runs out of her room in his underwear with his clothes
in a pile.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (yelling)
And John!
                                                            
John runs back.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
I really enjoyed your company.
                                                            
                       JOHN
The feeling's mutual.
                                                            
John runs out through the screen door smiling and fist bump
the sky with overwhelming glee.

                       NICO

                       JOHN
That was the best night of my
life.
                                                            
                       NICO
You remember?
