     TEASER

     FADE IN:

     EXT. MAIN STREET CENTERVILLE - DAY

     Even though it's a warm sunny Saturday, Joel and Casey 
     are the only ones in site as they walk out of the milk 
     shake shop with their shakes.

					CASEY
			Something doesnít feel right about
			that shop.

					JOEL
			What do you mean?

					CASEY
			It isn't as much fun eating in there
			anymore.

					JOEL
			Because of the low-carb craze?

					CASEY
			No.

					JOEL
			Well they got new refrigerators, the
			ice cream doesn't melt and refreeze
			every five hours like it used to.
				(under breath) 
			Especially after a certain friend of 
			ours put a small amount of explosives 
			in it.                             

					CASEY
			No, but I did notice.

     They continue to walk.

					JOEL
			Oh, we have to pay now. When Reicther
			worked there, we got everything for
			free.

					CASEY
			Reicther worked there?

					JOEL
			Yeah. He quit like a few months ago. 
			You don't remember? Hell, I just made a 
			reference to him working there.

					CASEY
			No. What did he do?

					JOEL
			Well he mostly worked counter but he was 
			the mascot a couple of times. Remember 
			we blocked out his eye holes, and when 
			he put it on, he couldnít see. He kept
			knocking things over and ended up in
			the middle of the street.

					CASEY
			Then what happened?

					JOEL
			Animal Control was called and almost
			shot Reicther because he thought a
			bear was on the loose.

	Casey begins to laugh.

					CASEY
			No, wait. This is a joke isn't it?

					JOEL
			No.

					CASEY
			Yes it is! Reicther is going to pop
			out of a corner in a bear suit and 
			scare me, isn't he?

					JOEL
			No. I'm serious.

     They walk to the corner and hear a car screeching to a 
     stop. They look in the street, but it's empty.

					JOEL (CONT'D)
			What the hell was that?

     They walk down the next street and come to a fence. They 
     hear the van rev up, run over something, and stop again.

     Joel and Casey find openings in the fence and look 
     through.

     They see an OLD MAN driving an old, beat up van right 
     towards them.  He runs over two pieces of plywood in the 
     middle of the parking lot before coming to a stop and 
     getting out of the van.

     He goes over to the plywood and takes out a cloth 
     laundry bag filled with something walk back into the 
     restaurant.

     Joel and Casey look at each other.

					CASEY
			What do you think?

					JOEL
			Well, Reicther's late.

									SMASH CUT TO:

     OPENING CREDIT SEQUENCE:

     Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar" plays over the 
     credits.

									AFTER CREDITS:

     EXT. BRIAN'S CAR - DAY (MOVING)

     Establishing shot. The car is going down and empty 
     street in the suburbs. We can hear Bad Religion's "Faith 
     in God" coming from the car.

     INT. BRIAN'S CAR - CONTINUOUS (MOVING)

     BRIAN VANDELE is driving while silently repeating the 
     lyrics. BROCK WARNER is sitting in the passenger's side. 
     There is a small suitcase sitting on Brock's lap.

					BRIAN
			So what happened to your house exactly?

					BROCK
			Well, it appears that two pipes under 
			near my basement floor apparently got 
			clogged up with something. After a few 
			hours of being clogged up there was 
			this large amount of pressure against 
			the pipes. Finally the pipes busted 
			and it slowly began to flood the 
			basement floor.

     Brian tries to contain his laughter.

					BROCK
			After a while the entire basement was 
			Just filled with...feces.

     Brian lets out a few giggles. Brock gives him a stern 
     look.

					BRIAN
			Sorry.

					BROCK
			Anyway, it's costing my mom a lot of 
			money to fix the whole system. So 
			instead of springing for a motel she 
			decided that me and my little brother 
			could stay with friends for a while.

					BRIAN
			That sucks.

					BROCK
			Especially since it's Reicther.

     Brian laughs.

										CUT TO:

     INT. VANDELE HOME - STACY'S ROOM - DAY

     Stacy is sitting in the middle of her room with boxes 
     surrounding her. She is packing, but everything seems to 
     very organized. In the background the song "Raised on 
     the Radio" by the Ravyns plays softly.

     REICTHER and CHRIS HUGHES walk past her room and look 
     and look in to see what she is doing.

					REICTHER
			Whatcha doin'?

					STACY
			Packing. You know I have CDs that I
			had no idea I ever bought.

     Chris looks through one of the stacks.

					STACY
			What are you two doing?

					CHRIS
			Um, nothing really. Just here to find 
			your brother.

					STACY
			Shocker. You know, I won't be able to
			take all of these with me, do you two
			want to go through them and see if
			there are any you want?

					REICTHER
			Sure.

					STACY
			Great!

     Chris picks up one of the CDs and holds it up.

					CHRIS
			I don't think I'll find anything I'll
			like based on this...

     He holds up Hooty and the Blowfish's "Cracked Rear View."

					STACY
			Ah, from rock star to fast food
			pitchman in 10 years...somehow I'm
			not surprised.

     Chris keeps going through albums, while Reicther joins in.

					CHRIS
			Cher, Gloria Estefan, Phil Collins...
			Paula Abdul?

					REICTHER
			Oh my god! The New Kids on the Block!
				(he looks at Stacy is who
				 is laughing)
			You have The New Kids on the Block?

					STACY
			Good thing I didn't ask you to go
			through my cassette tapes.

     Reicther looks stunned, while Chris seems confused.

					REICTHER
			You still have cassette tapes?

					CHRIS
			What's a cassette?

					REICTHER
			It's an American thing.

	Stacy rolls her eyes. The two continue to look through 
	some more.

					REICTHER
			I think I'll pass. Most of these will
			be better used in a landfill.

					CHRIS
			I don't know, there might be a few good
			one's here.

     Reicther who is about to leave, stops, and turns around.

					REICTHER
			Alright.

					STACY
			Great!  Oh by the way, if your could
			put the CDs back in the same order,
			that would be great. I'll be back.

     Stacy leaves. Reicther starts to remove the inserts from 
     the CDs.

					CHRIS
			What are you doing?

					REICTHER
			Stacy said the CDs had to be put back
			in the same order, she said nothing
			about these things being in there.

     He and Chris start taking out the inserts.

									CUT TO:

     EXT. PARKING LOT BEHIND CHINESE RESTAURANT - LATER

     Joel and Casey have hopped the fence over into the 
     parking lot and are looking around.

					CASEY
			What restaurant was that?

					JOEL
			That Chinese place.

     They walk around and go over to two pieces of plywood in 
     the middle of the parking lot.

					CASEY
			What does that smell like to you?

					JOEL
			Burnt rubber and a something
			disgusting. I don't know, lets get
			out of here.

					CASEY
			Wait, this is intriguing. You hungry?

					JOEL
			Always, why?

					CASEY
			Why don't we go in and see what we can
			find out?

					JOEL
			I donít feel like sampling something
			that was run over by a van. God,
			there could have been a fucking cat
			in there or something.

     Casey goes back though a opening in the fence.

					CASEY
			Come on, we'll just ask some
			questions, you donít have to eat
			anything.

     With some effort Casey pushes himself through the fence 
     while Joel watches. Joel walks down to the edge of the 
     parking lot and opens the gate and walks out onto the 
     sidewalk where Casey is.

					JOEL
			You're paying.

     They walk off.

									CUT TO:

     EXT. REICTHER HOME - LATER

     Brian's car pulls up in front of it. Brock gets out of 
     the passenger's side carrying his suitcase. He looks 
     over the place. There isn't a light on.

					BROCK
				  (to himself)
			Great.

     Brock turns back to Brian, who is still in the car.

					BROCK
			You want to wait here until the idiot 
			gets back?

					BRIAN
			Nah. I've got to go to Art Club.

					BROCK
			Art club?

					BRIAN
			Yeah...it's this club at school. My 
			new therapist suggested a do an after 
			school activity to keep my mind of...
			you know.

     He makes a "slash my wrists" gesture.

					BROCK
			Oh. Well never mind then.

					BRIAN
			Don't worry. What could Reicther 
			possibly be doing that more important?

										SMASH CUT:

     INT. VANDELE HOME - STACY'S ROOM - LATER

     Reicther and Chris are sorting through CDs as Stacy comes 
     back into her room.

					STACY
			Hey, my mom is going to take me shopping,
			We'0ll be back in a bit.

					REICTHER
			Okay. Hey, I'll be 'All By Myself.'

					STACY
			No you won't Chris' here.

					CHRIS
			Oh, 'It's All Coming Back To Me Now.'

					STACY
			Whatever.

					REICTHER
			Wait, 'Tell Him.'

					STACY
			Tell who what?

					CHRIS
			That 'My Heart Will Go On.'

					STACY
			What the fuck are you on?

					REICTHER
			Me? I'm just trying to get in your
			state of mind when you were buying the
			Celine Dion collection.

	Chris and Reicther hold up three CDs by Celine Dion. Stacy 
	rolls her eyes and leaves.

					REICTHER (CONT'D)
			Guess 'That's The Way It Is.'

									CUT TO:

     INT. CHINESE RESTAURANT - DAY

     Joel and Casey enter. The old, wrinkled OWNER behind the 
     counter greets them.

					OWNER
			How many?

					JOEL
			Two.

					OWNER
			Follow this way.

     He leads them to the table where Joel and Casey sit 
     down.

					JOEL
			Thanks.

					OWNER
			You want a romantic.

					CASEY
			Excuse me?

     The owner pulls out a lighter and lights the candles on 
     the table.

					JOEL (CONT'D)
			Oh, no. We won't be getting romantic
			in here today...or ever.

					CASEY
			Am I really that horrible Joel?

     The Owner looks at both of them and blows out the candle.

					OWNER
			What are you wanting?

					CASEY
			Something different...

					JOEL
			Something normal.

					OWNER
			Okay, look at menu, I'll be back.

     The Owner walks to the back room.

					JOEL
			What are you having?

					CASEY
			I'm going to see if they can tell me
			what they make from that stuff in the
			laundry bag.

     A WAITER comes over to the table.

					WAITER
			Hello, are you ready to order?

					CASEY
			I was wondering how do you make the
			Wok's Delight?

					WAITER
			Assorted seafood with vegetables and
			soy sauce.

					CASEY
			No, not that one. How the number 14?

					WAITER
			The Egg Drop Soup?

					CASEY
			No that couldnít be it.

					WAITER
			I'll give you a minute.

     The waiter walks away.

					JOEL
			Are you going to go through every
			thing on the menu?

					CASEY
			No, just until we reach the thing
			that's run over by a car.

     Joel sighs.

     INT. VANDELE HOME - STACY'S ROOM - LATER

	Reicther and Chris sit on either side of two large piles 
	of CDs, one pile a lot smaller than the other.

					CHRIS
			Okay, we have...
				(points to the small pile)
			The want pile. And we have...
				(points to the large pile)
			The shit pile.

     The phone rings and Chris goes to answer it. Reicther 
     makes sure that Chris is gone, and quickly goes through 
     the crap CD pile looking for something.

     He finds it, it is Daniel Beddingfiled's "Gotta Get 
     Thru This" and hides it under his shirt.

     Chris comes back.

					CHRIS (CONT'D)
				(starts collecting his
				 CDs)
			Well, this was kinda fruitful, I found
			some good ones.

     Reicther sees that Chris is taking most of them.

					REICTHER
			Wait a minute, those are my good ones.

					CHRIS
			What, you want all of these?

					REICTHER
			It not a question of wanting them, it
			is a question of me needing them.

					CHRIS
			For what?

					REICTHER
			To become a vital part of my music
			collection.

					CHRIS
			So you'd never listen to them?

					REICTHER
			It's like all those cable channels,
			you don't watch them all, but you
			still have them. It's a status symbol.
			So, are we agreed?

					CHRIS
			Fuck no!

     Chris gathers the CDs he wants.

					REICTHER
			Fine. I'm just...

					CHRIS
			You're what?

					REICTHER
			No, I'm just depressed now. You know, 
			we've already had one of our friends go 
			suicidal.

     Chris looks a little concerned.

					REICTHER
			No, you take them, my kick ass music 
			collection can't help me anymore.

     Will looks a little concerned now.

					CHRIS
			Well, uh, how would the CDs help that?

					REICTHER
			Yes because then everyone would know 
			that I had the best collection, and I 
			would	therefore, be better than them.

					CHRIS
			Fine, take them.

					REICTHER
			What?

					CHRIS
			You can have them.

					REICTHER
			Cool. Thanks. Ah, the sun seems
			brighter than ever.

									CUT TO:

     INT. CHINESE RESTAURANT - LATER

     Casey is still talking to the Waiter. Joel looks very 
     annoyed by Casey asking how each item on the menu is 
     made.

					CASEY
			How do you make the Empress Chicken?

					JOEL
			Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait!  What can
			we eat that is run over with a van in a
			laundry bag?

					WAITER
			The Cabbage Soup?

					JOEL
			It was the cabbage?

					WAITER
			Yes.

					JOEL
			What do they run over it for?

					WAITER
			What he does is...

					OWNER
			Excuse me.

     The Waiter moves to the side to see the Owner standing 
     behind him.

					OWNER (CONTíD)
			So you have found my secret. The
			cabbage soup. A recipe from my
			ancestors.

					CASEY
			What do you run over it with a van
			for?

					OWNER
			You run over it to infuse the flavors
			and it shreds it perfectly. I'll bring
			two orders for you now.

					JOEL
			No thanks. I don't eat things run over
			by cars.

					OWNER
			Excuse me?

					JOEL
			I'll pass on the cabbage soup.

					OWNER
			Oh really.  You see that device on the
			wall.

     Joel and Casey look at the wall behind them. There is 
     some sort of wood torture device displayed menacingly 
     over their heads.

					JOEL
			What about it.

					OWNER
			That was also a relic brought down
			from my ancestors, if I could show you
			that instead.

     Casey and Joel look quickly at each other.

					JOEL
			Soup sounds good.

					OWNER
			Good.

     The Owner and the Waiter start to walk away but the 
     Owner turns back around.

					OWNER (CONTíD)
			I'll still show you how that thing
			works, it works very well when I mash
			potatoes.

     He goes into the back room.

					CASEY
			Did you know, he's from Seattle?

					JOEL
			Explains the accent.

									CUT TO:

     EXT. REICTHER HOUSE - LATER

     Brock is sitting out in front of the house, sitting on 
     his suitcase. The lights are still off. Brock looks both 
     ways before letting out a deep sigh. Suddenly we hear a 
     loud CRASHING sound off screen.

					MAN (O.S.)
			What the hell are you doing?!

					WOMAN (O.S.)
			I'm throwing your shit out! You can go 
			live with your damn whore!

     Upon hearing this, Brock seems very uncomfortable.

					MAN (O.S.)
			Your just making stuff up!

					WOMAN (O.S.)
			I know you go out every night and fuck 
			her! My sister Gina told me so!

					MAN (O.S.)
			Well, maybe if I was getting some at 
			home I wouldn't need to fuck a whore!

     Brock begins to whistle and covers his ears.

					BROCK
				(under breath)
			Where are you, Reicther?

									CUT TO:

     EXT. CANDY STORE - SAME

     Reicther is sitting on a bench outside the shop. He is 
     licking a TOOTSIE POP. As he licks it, he counts.

					REICTHER
			1,002.
					(lick)
			1,003.
					(lick)
			1,004.

     INT. SCHOOL - AUDITORIUM - DAY

     WILL COOPER enters humming "No Rain" by Blind Melon a 
     little but quickly stops. The cast of the play is spread 
     out in the place, talking. He walks up onto the stage 
     and looks out over the edge.

					VOICE (O.S.)
			Do you think it is less of a fall if
			you go head first?

     Will looks up to see ELLEN CONNER smiling at him.

					WILL
			I don't know.

					ELLEN
			You don't have a clue?

					WILL
			Ellen...let me enlighten you on a 
			little secret. I haven't had a clue 
			for last ten years.

					ELLEN
			Well, you were smiling like you knew.

					WILL
			I always do that. Smile and nod.

					ELLEN
			Why?

					WILL
			Because everyone loves an idiot.

     He smiles even bigger. She stands next to him at the 
     edge.

					ELLEN
			Well, think about it. If you are
			looking down, you not only have the
			four feet that you are actually
			falling, but the six feet that your
			eyes are adding to the illusion.

     Will looks a little confused.

					ELLEN (CONT'D)
			Get down.

     Ellen gets on the stage floor and lies face down looking 
     over the edge of the stage. Will follows.

					ELLEN (CONT'D)
			See the difference. Itís not so far
			anymore.

					WILL
			I guess so.

     She lays on her side next to Will.

					ELLEN
			So, Dr. Karpathy, learn your lines?

					WILL
				(turning over)
			Yeah, Iím pretty good with remembering
			things.

					ELLEN
			That's good because...

     MR. JOHN PARKER walks in to the gym.

					PARKER
			Okay, everyone. Please on to the
			stage, and we will begin!

     Will and Ellen are no longer alone on the stage and have 
     to stop their conversation.

     INT. SCHOOL - ART CLASS - SAME

     Brian enters the classroom where a number of easels are 
     set up. About a dozen other students are there, they 
     look at him as he enters.

     BRANDON BRIM, a well built senior with spiky brown hair 
     walks over to Brian.

					BRANDON
			Hi, I'm Brandon Brim.

					BRIAN
			Brian Vandele. Is this the Art Club?

					BRANDON
			Yep, pick a easel, and weíll start in
			a second.

     Brian walks over and Brandon sets up at the easel next 
     to him.

					BRIAN
			So what do we do here?

					BRANDON
			Art, usually.

					BRIAN
			What do you usually paint?

					BRANDON
			Whatever is on my mind.

     Brandon paints a cross shape on his canvas.

					BRIAN
				  (confused)
			Crossroads?

					BRANDON
			Sorta, it is a cross though.

					BRIAN
			What does it stand for then?

     Brandon gives him a look like he should know.

					BRANDON
			Jesus.

					BRIAN
			Oh! That's what that is.

					BRANDON
			And my girlfriend, my career, and
			basically my life.

					BRIAN
			Wow, I didn't know you could hang so
			much on it. I thought Jesus had a lot
			of problems.

     Brian takes a blob of yellow paint and starts to paint 
     something on his canvas.

					BRANDON
				(looking at them)
			What are those?

     Brian tries to think of something quick.

					BRIAN
			Um...Flowers?

					BRANDON
			Oh.
				(they continue painting)
			Are you sure those are flowers?

     Brian stops painting and flips the canvas paper back and 
     studies a fresh canvas.

					BRIAN
			Apparently, thou shan't not critique
			others art work, isn't in your bible.

     Brandon looks a little confused and amused.

     EXT. CHINESE RESTAURANT - LATER

     Casey and Joel walk out, satisfied and full. Near the 
     front wall there is an Asian man to a mysterious BLACK 
     MAN who's back is facing us.

					CASEY
			Ah, those Asians sure know how to cook.

					JOEL
			Who knew that the cabbage would taste 
			better if they ran it over with a van.

     They walk away. The Asian man looks upset. The Black Man 
     turns around to reveal a large badge which plainly reads 
     "Health Inspector."

									CUT TO:

     INT. SCHOOL - ART CLASS - LATER

     The music plays as Brain tries to paint something 
     abstract on his canvas. Brandon is next to him making 
     something with a lot of crosses.

					BRANDON
			So basically, to become a minister I
			have to give up Monica for about a
			year during school.

					BRIAN
			Give up?

					BRANDON
			We can't have sex.

					WILL
			Oh.

					BRANDON
			Well, you know what that's like don't
			you.

					BRIAN
				(uncomfortable)
			Yeah, sure.

					BRANDON
			You want to be with this girl... but
			you can't, because your parents are
			downstairs or her litter sister wonít
			leave the room, or Jesus is watching
			you.

     Brian stops painting and looks up for a second then 
     shakes his head and continues painting.

					BRIAN
			Yeah, something like that.

     Brandon paints but his hand slips and he makes a mark on 
     the canvas.

					BRANDON
			God damn it.
				(catches himself)
			Oh shit, I canít say...
				(again)
			Fuck...
				(covers his mouth)
			What the hell!

					BRIAN
			Brandon, buddy, you have to calm down.

					BRANDON
			I know, I just made a vow that I
			wouldnít swear.

					BRIAN
			Aw, well you know what I say? Fuck 
			that shit.

     Brandon laughs so does Brian.

									CUT TO:

     INT. SCHOOL - AUDITORIUM - LATER

     The cast of the play is in the middle of staging. They 
     are all holding up cards with their characterís names on 
     them and have to stand in the same spot as the lights 
     are moved into place.

     Will is moved right in front of a very hot, bright light. 
     Ellen moves a few feet to his left.

					ELLEN
			Will.

					WILL
				(squinting)
			Yes.  Who is it?

					ELLEN
			It's Ellen.

					WILL
			Oh, hi.

     He tries to open his eyes to look at her but canít.

					ELLEN
			I wanted to ask you something. Do you
			want to be in the newspaper?

					WILL
			Not a chance in hell.

					ELLEN
			Why?

					WILL
			Unless it's "Boondocks" or "Garfield"
			...I don't read papers and I don't 
			like papers.

					ELLEN
			Not even the "Family Circus?"

					WILL
				    (angry)
			Why, I -

					ELLEN
			Calm down. I was only joking.

     Brief pause.

					WILL
			Why all the questions about organized 
			school activities?							

					ELLEN
			Well, I write for the school paper, I
			want to do interviews with the cast of
			the play.

					WILL
			Oh, okay. What time?

					ELLEN
			Tomorrow, Iíll do a cast interviews on 
			Monday in the Lunchroom.			

					WILL
			Ah, the lunchroom. Sounds good.

     The light that was shining in Willís face the whole time 
     is finally turned off, much to the relief of Will.

					PARKER (O.S.)
			Okay, everyone. Great rehearsal 
			everyone! I'll see you Monday.

      Will is still blinded by the light.

      WILLíS P.O.V:
      He can hardly see anything, he walks up to what he 
     thinks is Ellen.

					WILL
			So what time Monday?

     No answer.

					WILL (CONTíD)
			Ellen?

					ELLEN
			Over here.

     Will spins around and walks over to where he heard 
     Ellen's voice. But accidentally walks off the stage and 
     falls on the auditorium floor in a heap.

     BACK TO SCENE

     Ellen walks over to the edge of the stage from 
     completely the opposite direction Will was heading.

					ELLEN (CONT'D)
			So how many feet was it?

     Will turns over and smiles stupidly at her before 
     raising his MIDDLE FINGER at her.

									CUT TO:

     INT. SCHOOL - ART CLASS - LATER

     Brandon is cleaning up and Brian is the last one to 
     leave.

					BRANDON
			So you coming back?

					BRIAN
				(turns around)
			Think so.

					BRANDON
			Good.

     Brandon continues cleaning up, and after a moment, Brain 
     leaves.

									CUT TO:

     EXT. REICTHER HOME - LATER

     Brock is still sitting on his suitcase on the front 
     lawn. We can hear we can hear crashing sounds next door. 
     Brock is quietly rocking himself while covering his 
     ears. Then in the distance, Reicther walks up.

					REICTHER
			Ah, so it takes 794, 213 licks to get 
			to the center of a tootsie pop.

     He smiles.

					REICTHER
			Once again, I have solved one of 
			life's great mysteries.

     He walks up to his house and notices Brock.

					REICTHER
			Oh, Brock. I'm so sorry. I forgot you 
			were coming over tonight.

     Brock gives him a look. Suddenly THREE GUNSHOTS come 
     from off-screen before Brock takes off running. Reicther 
     seems confused.

									SMASH CUT TO:

     INT. NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - SAME

     There's a nice young, YUPPIE couple sitting on the 
     couch. There are watching an Old Black and White movie 
     where all the sounds have come from.

					FEMALE YUPPIE
			I wonder if that was too loud?

                                                        FADE OUT.

     ("All These Things That I've Done" by the Killers plays 
     over the credits.)
