FADE IN:

EXT. OUTSIDE JIMMY'S HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Austin and John are seen approaching Jimmy's house from the
sidewalk.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I still don't understand what the
big deal is.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Tensions are just kinda high, and
the last thing we need is you
loosing self-control.
                                                            
                       JOHN
That's exactly why I should loose
self control. That's what got me
laid dude.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Have some pride. Don't you think
girls would like you just being
you?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Absolutely not.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
You're right, your just gonna have
to deal tonight.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (groans)
You suck.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
This is for Nico's sake. Just
promise me you won't get wasted,
alright.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (entering house)
I swear i will have total self
control.
                                                            
They enter the house to see a full party going on with
music, lights, and plenty of teen drinking. Lane and Kasey
are seen talking off in the corner of the room. Lane puts
his hand on Kasey's cheek and she pulls it off.
                                                            

2.

                       LANE
I don't understand what the deal
is?
                                                            
                       KASEY
It's just a promise I made
Natalie.
                                                            
                       LANE
C'mon. We got a room to ourselves
up stairs. A couple of drinks.
(Puts hand on Kasey's hip) Some
bad intentions.
                                                            
Kasey slaps Lanes hand.
                                                            
                       KASEY
You're being a creep.
                                                            
                       LANE
No reason to be a bitch about it.
                                                            
                       KASEY
What the hell is your problem?
                                                            
                       LANE
This stupid feminism bull shit.
                                                            
                       KASEY
It's not stupid!
                                                            
                       LANE
You honestly think this stupid
facade can cover up who you really
are? Act like you're one of the
boys? Look at yourself. You can't
even finish your beer unless it
has a fruit in it. If your
honestly gonna be this way why
don't you just head to the kitchen
where you belong and remember your
role.
                                                            
                       KASEY
      (walks away)
You're a fucking ass-hole.
                                                            
                       LANE
      (smirking)
Nah. I'm just a man.
                                                            

3.

KITCHEN
                                                            
John, Austin, Nico, Robbie, and Jimmy are all scene hanging
out.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (To Rob)
Why don't you ever bring your
brother to these things Rob?
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
      (Awkwardly Coughs)
He's not really one for going out.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Well it would still be nice to
meet him.
                                                            
                       NICO
That might not be for the best.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You guys are fucking riddles, you
know that?
                                                            
Natalie enters the room.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Or maybe you're just a brown
noser.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Look out Rob. She might be
menstruating.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (Making a Joke)
I would know.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (annoyed)
That didn't even make sense.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (Smiling)
No it's cool our cycles are
synced.
                                                            
                       JOHN
That would mean we'd actually have
to be around each other.
                                                            

4.

                       NATALIE
You're actually who i came to talk
too. Come on queer bait.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (walking towards
       her)
And you call yourself a feminist.
                                                            
John and Natalie exit scene.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
What are the chances they do it
again.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
About the same as me winning a
triathlon.
                                                            
Kasey enters upset.
                                                            
                       NICO
      (to Kasey)
What's wrong?
                                                            
                       KASEY
Nothing. Lane's just being a dick.
                                                            
                       NICO
You're talking like that's
unusual.
                                                            
                       KASEY
      (smiling)
That is my boyfriend you're
talking about.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
      (coughs)
Important things to remember.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Don't be silly Austin. Me and Nico
are just friends. And it's boys
versus girls tonight.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
How is the tampon tyranny?
                                                            
                       KASEY
The name's are just not coming
together.
                                                            

5.

                       NICO
Fort Penis just rolls off the
tongue doesn't it.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Sure does dick licker.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Right now honestly I'm just trying
to avoid all of this noise.
                                                            
                       NICO
We could go for a walk outside
y'know if you wanted too.
                                                            
                       KASEY
I think that sounds like a great
idea.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
      (coughs)
No it doesn't.
                                                            
                       NICO
      (walking away)
Relax guys we're just going for a
stroll. We'll be back.
                                                            
Nico and Kasey exit.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
I swear the three of us are
invisible.
                                                            
LIVING ROOM
                                                            
John and Natalie are seen sitting together on the couch,
Natalie with a beer in her hand.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I don't understand why you wan't
to talk to me now.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
I don't know. I guess i just felt
bad. The whole Fallon thing. I
left you in the dark. It wasn't
right.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You weren't the only one.
                                                            

6.

                       NATALIE
Yeah I know. It's just... It was
like seeing you was an old memory
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah and how's that.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
It's just, when you're really
thinking about the better times
that have pass, you get a glimpse
of those feelings back, like a
moment was given back, but when
you start to feel it, there's this
loss, because you know it's not
coming back.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (grimaces)
Yeah that's the general feeling.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
What is it?
                                                            
                       JOHN
I really don't want to you to take
this the wrong way, and I have,
for the most part, come to terms
with me and Fallon. It's just
that, even though everyone tells
me I'm not, there's always this
shred of doubt that the only
reason any of these guys like me
is because of that faint feeling I
give of him.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
      (Touches John's
       Cheek)
I'm sorry. I know i didn't help
that. But you're not the dread of
the past. You're the hope of the
future.
                                                            
John looks down and shyly smiles.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You know it's funny. How some days
I feel like nothing at all and
others like I really... matter.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
That's life bud.
                                                            

7.

Lane is seen off to the side putting a pill into a cup of
beer and walking over to John and Natalie.
                                                            
                       LANE
Hey what's up guys?
                                                            
Natalie gives a half hearted wave and John just looks down
trying not to make eye contact.
                                                            
                       LANE
What's wrong?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Nico told me you called me a
faggot.
                                                            
                       LANE
That's what I call my friends. You
know, it's just me and my faggots.
                                                            
                       JOHN
We're kinda having a conversation
over here.
                                                            
                       LANE
      (angry)
Well now we're having a
conversation. I just came to be
give Natalie (puts down in front
of Natalie) a drink and you
decided to be a total prick.
                                                            
                       JOHN
We all know what you really want
to GIVE Natalie.
                                                            
                       LANE
You better watch what you're
fucking saying.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Can you just fuck off. Don't you
have a girlfriend you should be
harassing.
                                                            
                       LANE
That's what i get for trying to be
nice.
                                                            
Lane angrily walks away and meets up with his friend
Cameron.
                                                            

8.

                       CAMERON
Sorry but it looks like you just
struck out.
                                                            
                       LANE
Oh just wait my friend. You'll
see. (Cut to beer cup in front of
Natalie) She'll come around. Just
you wait.
                                                            
Cameron and Lane exit.
                                                            
                       JOHN
I have no idea what Kasey sees in
that guy.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
That's really the main reason
we're doing this gender wars
thing. It's just for her to see
she is strong enough to be on her
own.
                                                            
                       JOHN
How's the "beer only" rule going.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
It's so disgusting.
                                                            
John takes the drugged beer.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Here let me have that. I haven't
had a drink all night.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Why have you been going easy?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Austin just is afraid I'll get to
messed up tonight and cause a
problem. (takes a big swig of beer
and coughs) Ridiculous, right?
                                                            
 
EXT. SIDEWALK - NIGHT
                                                            
Kasey and Nico are seen sitting on the sidewalk laughing.
                                                            
                       KASEY
      (laughing)
How mad was your dad?
                                                            

9.

                       NICO
      (giggling)
He was so drunk he probably didn't
even remember we were his
children.
                                                            
The laughing dies down and there is a silence outside.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Can I ask you about your something
about your sister?
                                                            
                       NICO
Feel free.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Even after she left you, broke
your heart, why do you still carry
that pocket watch around?
                                                            
Nico pulls it out of his pocket, and looks down on it.
                                                            
                       NICO
It's funny, you know? Not like
hilarious, but just interesting i
guess. She gave it to me when she
went on to senior week with her
older friends to the beach. I was,
a superman fanatic. I was full
blown geek for it, and when my
sister left, all I could do was
look at. Count the seconds tick,
tick, ticking away till my best
friend came back. Even after then
I would do it when ever she left
the house, even if it was like
five minutes to go to the post
office. I would just open and
close it constantly, like I could
actually move time. Since the
day... the day she left for good,
it still feels like she could stop
in anytime. Like if just stared at
this stupid watch for another
second, it would bring her back.
And then a second becomes a
minute, and a minute becomes an
hour, and I realize I'm obsessive.
The reason I still carry it
around, is that each tick gives me
hope that she's still coming home.
I don't know, it's stupid.
                                                            

10.

                       KASEY
No it's not. It's really sweet.
                                                            
                       NICO
Or maybe I'm just an idiot for
believing.
                                                            
                       KASEY
I promise that whoever it is, once
you meet Nico Galloway, it's
impossible to forget them.
                                                            
Nico smiles, and Kasey's iphone begins playing "Stolen
Dance" by Milky Chance.
                                                            
                       NICO
I love this song.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Stolen Dance?
                                                            
                       NICO
Yeah. I never learned how too.
                                                            
                       KASEY
      (shocked)
You're kidding.
                                                            
                       NICO
Nope. Never danced a day in my
life.
                                                            
Kasey stands up and holds out her hand.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Come on lets go.
                                                            
                       NICO
      (smiling)
Now YOU must be kidding.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Not in the slightest.
                                                            
                       NICO
Someone could see us.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Who cares. Just stand up you
pussy.
                                                            
Nico reluctantly stands up and Kasey pulls him in closer.
                                                            

11.

                       KASEY
      (directing Nico)
Now put your hands on my hips (she
grabs his hands and places them)
and just follow my lead.
                                                            
                       NICO
This is a mistake.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Does it feel like a mistake. Now
twirl me.
                                                            
Nico puts up his arm and slowly twirls Kasey and they both
laugh at each other.
                                                            
                       KASEY
Now pull me back in.
                                                            
They both dance close together.
                                                            
                       KASEY
No go in for the dip.
                                                            
Nico dips Kasey and holds her there and romantically looks
in her eyes.
                                                            
                       NICO
I know what to do next.
                                                            
Nico leans in and passionately kisses Kasey. She touches his
cheek and they pull each other up and kiss romantically in
the moonlight.
                                                            
 
INT. LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
John is seen drugged out of his mind walking in a daze
around the party while "Sleepy Head" by Passion Pit plays
heavily in the back ground. Jimmy sees him and rolls over
concerned.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
You alright bud?
                                                            
                       JOHN
I'm so drunk I'm seeing colors and
I only had ONE beer! Did you get
taller?
                                                            
                       JIMMY
I don't think you're drunk John.
Who gave you that beer.
                                                            

12.

                       JOHN
Lane gave it to Natalie and she
gave it too me. I swear this disco
ball we're in is INSANE!
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (yelling)
AUSTIN! ROBBIE! NATALIE!
                                                            
All three run over to the situation.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
What's going on?
                                                            
                       JIMMY
John's been drugged.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
What the fuck!
                                                            
                       JOHN
You mean like a pot?
                                                            
Robbie sits down John and puts headphones on John.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Here. Just sit down and listen to
music. Don't move.
                                                            
It cuts to John's perspective and all he can here is "When
Will the Bass Drop" by The Lonely Island blasting through
the headphones which is tripping him out even more. It cuts
out of his perspective and the music stops.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Jimmy, how did this happen?
                                                            
                       JIMMY
It was that shit head Lane. He
tried to slip Natalie something
but John drank HER beer.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Oh my god he's right.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
I'm gonna kill that asshole.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
He was going to rape me.
                                                            
It cuts back to John's perspective with the music blasting.
Everyone begins arguing in front of him and he gets up and

13.

walks away with out anyone noticing. It cuts out of his
perspective.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
We can't call the police!
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
We have too. We don't even know
what this guy slipped John. It
could kill him for all we know.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
He wanted to rape me not kill me.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Who cares! Send his ass off to
jail.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Along with everyone else here.
This is your house Jimmy.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
I'm willing to bite the bullet.
This guy fucked with the wrong
family.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Guys where the hell did John go?
                                                            
It cuts back to John and the music plays throughout the rest
of the song, still playing The Lonely Island "When Will the
Bass Drop". John's face looks angry and he walks over to
Lane and Cameron.
                                                            
                       LANE
The fuck you looking at snowflake?
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (yelling)
YOU PUT POT IN MY DRINK!
                                                            
Lanes eyes go wide and he realizes John took the drug.
                                                            
                       LANE
      (Quietly to
       Cameron)
Knock him out.
                                                            
Cameron puts his hands on John, but John shoves him off and
makes a Karate noise.
                                                            

14.

                       JOHN
      (yelling)
YOU CALLED ME A FAGGOT! (Lane
pushes him). THAT'S HOMOPHOBIC!
                                                            
                       NATALIE
Oh no.
                                                            
Austin begins to hurry over as Rob and Jimmy head to the
kitchen. Cameron pushes John and punches Austin to the
ground. The music gets louder and picks up. John gets pushed
around until suddenly, Lane wraps his arms around John from
behind like Robbie did when they trained. John's eye opens
wide and time stops. The bass drops, and CRASH! John flips
Lane flawlessly over his shoulder into a glass table.
Everyone looks in astonishment including to focused shots on
Robbie and Austin. Cameron picks up John and begins to spin
him in a circle. John screams and Cameron tossed him across
the room.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (V.O)
Hey bitch!
                                                            
Jimmy is scene with rob wearing a football helmet.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
CHARGE!
                                                            
Rob begins sprinting with Jimmy straight towards Cameron.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
      (worried)
This is a bad idea.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Just run!
                                                            
Jimmy rams into Cameron full blast and all three of them fly
outside through the screen door. Jimmy lands on top of
Cameron and Rob pulls him off back towards his chair,
dragging him.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
      (yelling)
I'll bight your legs off!
                                                            
John gets up, and lane charges him, but his punched down by
Austin before he can reach him. He kicks Austin's legs out
and floors him. Natalie runs over, but Lane smacks her
across the face. John sees this, and enraged, tackles Lane
outside. The whole party crowds around them and Lane begins

throwing flurries of punches. John begins attacking right
back.
                                                            
                       LANE
You're a bigger bitch than Fallon!
                                                            
John begins making contact with his hits, and right when it
seems like he's about to win, Lane rocks him to the floor.
                                                            
                       LANE
You're weak! I'm stronger than you
in every way!
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (coughing)
I have one thing you don't.
                                                            
Nico comes in and knocks Lane back with a square hit to the
Jaw. Jimmy, Robbie, Austin, Natalie, and Kasey all group up
with John and Nico and stand together. Austin helps John up
and he stands with a limp. Lane stands up and sees Kasey
with group.
                                                            
                       LANE
      (yelling)
Kasey what the fuck!
                                                            
                       KASEY
We're done creep. Go to hell.
                                                            
                       LANE
      (to John)
You little shit! You better start
marking your days. You think
you're their friends. You're there
replacement. You're the second dog
after the first one dies. And one
day you're gonna string yourself
up just like the last one did.
                                                            
John steps forward.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You're wrong! I may not be able to
see straight, but I'm level headed
enough to know I got it figured
out. You can kick the shit out of
me, bruise me, and knock me down
all you want, because I'll always
have somebody to pick me up, and
that makes me stronger than you
can ever be. It doesn't matter
what we lost. Friends. Family.
Just being able to walk, it means

                       JOHN (cont'd)
nothing, cause when we come
together, we're anything but
broken. These aren't my friends,
this is my family, and I'm not
just living for myself anymore.
We're all in it for each other,
together.
                                                            
There is a silence, as lane grimaces and everyone stares him
down. He grumbles to himself, and limps away, putting the
party in cheers. Kasey kisses Nico.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
It's about dam'n time.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Welcome to Fort Penis.
                                                            
                       NICO
Wait, John.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Know he's right. We're all in this
together now.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
No more maxi pads to the face?
                                                            
Austin slaps Rob across the face with a condom and he starts
coughing.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
Lube in my mouth. Lube in my
mouth!
                                                            
                       JOHN
Am i going to remember any of
this.
                                                            
                       NATALIE
I'll be sure to fill in the
missing blanks.
                                                            
Natalie kisses John on the cheek.
                                                            
                       JOHN
There's no way in hell I'm
forgetting that.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
Well dude to the screen door and
glass table being totally

                       JIMMY
Well dude to the screen door and
glass table being totally
destroyed, I think I'm busted when
my parents come home.
                                                            
Rob puts his hand on John's shoulder.
                                                            
                       ROBBIE
I can't believe you nailed that
move.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yeah well i had a good teacher.
                                                            
Rob punches John in the stomach and begins chuckling to
himself.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (gasping)
Lick my clit!
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Alright everybody, raise your hand
if you need ice.
                                                            
Everyone but Nico, Kasey, and John raise there hands.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
You too John.
                                                            
                       JOHN
But I can't even feel it.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
That's the drugs.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Marijuana is not awesome.
                                                            
                       JIMMY
You don't know much about drugs do
you.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Just that they make my legs go
numb.
                                                            
They all go inside still talking and music plays out the
scene.
                                                            


FADE OUT.
