TEASER FADE IN: INT. BRIAN'S CAR - AFTERNNOON There is a huge crack the windshield of Brian's car. Brian is sitting in his seat, his head is lulled back and his eyes are closed. He starts to come around and looks around at his car and slowly realizes what has happened. BRIAN Oh, Jesus, what the fuck happened? JESUS (from inside the glove box) You were in a car accident Einstein. BRIAN I said shut the fuck up! Brian slams his hands on the steering wheel, the horn goes off, Brian jumps up in surprise and bangs his head on the ceiling. BRIAN Ow! Brian slowly gets out of his car. EXT. BRIAN'S CAR - CONTINUOUS Brian slowly gets out of his car and stumbles out into a deep ditch next to the road. His car sits rests front first in the ditch while the other car teeters half on the shoulder and halfway into the ditch. The other cars headlights shine right on Brian, he looks up to see a shadowed figure step slowly out of the rivers side door, but can't see the person yet because the headlights are blinding him. The other driver seems to realize this and gets back into his car and turns off his lights. Brian adjust his eyes as we see the door of the other car open again and JERRY SEINFELD step out of the car. He walks over to the edge of the ditch and examines the cars. JERRY (rubbing chin) Well, this isn't good. OPENING CREDIT SEQUENCE: Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar" plays over the credits. CUT TO: EXT. VANDELE HOME - FRONT PORCH - SAME TIME Stacy and Brian's father, WALTER, are standing on their porch talking to KEVIN VANDELE, Brian's uncle. He is on his mid thirties, long red hair, and has a helmet in his hand to go with his motorcycle that is parked in the driveway. WALTER Well, I was great for you to stop in like this, Kevin, we always enjoy your visits. KEVIN Oh yeah, sure I love coming to this old town. Great memories, great memories... (awkward pause) Yeah, and I love seeing all the family again. He waves to Stacy. STACY Yeah, it was great seeing you too, Uncle Kev. Kevin still stands there. WALTER Well, we hate too keep you, Kevin... KEVIN Yeah... He doesn't move. WALTER Well... KEVIN You aren't by chance going to the bank, are you? WALTER Nope, no reason to go there today... or in the future, really. Why? KEVIN Well see I have this theory that these guys are ripping me off... As Kevin continues to talk, Stacy begins to look around. Down the street, Stacy sees Marilyn's car driving down the street, Stacy's eyes get wide and behind Walter and Kevin's backs she gestures at the car to keep driving. After slowing down a little bit, Marilyn sees Stacy's gestures and Walter and Kevin standing there and quickly drives on. WALTER Well, I have to get dinner going. KEVIN Oh, you cooking dinner? I can help! WALTER No...I mean...we're having dinner... at the old folks home. We do that every week, so they get company. We're...going to dinner. KEVIN Ah, okay. I'll get going then. (he puts his helmet on and goes over to his bike) See ya! Walter and Stacy wave as Kevin starts up his bike and rides off. WALTER (sighs in relief) Finally! God, wayward family members are supposed to stay that way. STACY Come on. He's just family. WALTER Just because he's family, doesn't mean I have to like him. I gotta get going. I'll be back later. Stacy seems a bit upset by this. STACY So, I guess this means...I don't have to like you. WALTER Well if you want to still go to that expensive Chicago college... then you'll love me for all time. He smiles and kiss her on her forehead. WALTER Say "hi" to mom for me will you. Walter gets into his car and drives off. Marilyn drives Down the road again, looking out her window and seeing that Stacy is standing alone parks at the curb. She gets out of the car, and walks up to Stacy and they walk inside together. CUT TO: INT. CRASH SITE - SAME Jerry finishes looking over his car and not notices Brian. He starts to walk over to him. JERRY Are you alright? Brian looks up and is about to say something. He stops dead in his tracks and begins to stare. BRIAN Are you Jerry Seinfeld? JERRY You guessed it. A motorcycle rides down the street, then, all of a sudden, it makes a quick 180 in the middle of the street and screeches to a halt right in front of the crash site. KEVIN Brian! Are you okay man? BRIAN Yeah I'm okay uncle Kev. KEVIN Dude, what happened? BRIAN I don't know, I was too busy blacking out. Brian sits down. JERRY Well, I can explain that, you see... INT. JERRY'S CAR - FLASHBACK (BLACK & WHITE) Jerry is behind the wheel of his car, looking very tired. JERRY (V/O) I had just done a show in Indianapolis and I thought I would come down to visit some friends that live around here. Although it turns out that I went the wrong way for about two hours out of Indianapolis and had to backtrack quite a ways to find myself in these parts. I found out too late what eight hours lack of sleep can do to you. Jerry looks like he's starting to nod off behind the wheel. JERRY (V/O) In the same way Superman is defeated by kryptonite...I was defeated by a lack of sleep. Jerry falls asleep. JERRY (V/O) And in the same way that Spiderman is aware of dangers before they happen I woke up just before the collision! Jerry wakes up and looks shocked and tries to swerve out of the way. The frame freezes. JERRY (V/O) Unfortunately even Spidey-sense is negatively effected by a lack of sleep. The frame unfreezes and we can hear the breaking of glass and it goes to black. CUT TO: INT. CRASH SITE - PRESENT Jerry finishes telling his story to Kevin and Brian. JERRY And that is what happened. Kevin gets a realization. KEVIN Holy hell! Are you Jerry Seinfeld!? JERRY Yes I am, are you a fan of the show? Jerry and Kevin shake hands. KEVIN Oh yeah, I'm a huge fan! BRIAN Um, Kevin? KEVIN Hang on wait, right here I'm going to go get a camera. OH! I've got a Puffy shirt you can sign. BRIAN Could you call 911 too? You know if its not too much trouble? KEVIN Huh? Yeah, whatever. Kevin runs off. Brian and Jerry are left alone. It's a bit awkward. Jerry notices Brian is holding his head. JERRY Does your head hurt? BRIAN No, just my pride. Brian looks at his car. BRIAN'S POV: Brians car is obviously totaled. The passenger door is barley hanging on at all and the passenger window it totally shattered. There is also smoke coming from the hood. Brian turn's his head. BRIAN'S POV: Brian looks at Jerry's car, the most damage it has is a fair sized dent in the front, other than that it is fine. Brian looks at the ground. BRIAN Dad isn't going to be happy about this at all. CUT TO: INT. HIGH SCHOOL - AUDITORIUM - SAME There is no one in the place. Suddenly we can hear brief talking coming from behind the stage. Just then, WILL COOPER and ELLEN CONNER emerge from backstage. Ellen is laughing while Will seems embarrassed. WILL You can quit laughing at any time. ELLEN I'm sorry. It's not every day you find a straight man who watches the "Gilmore Girls." Will quickly quiets her. WILL (quietly) I don't watch "Gilmore Girls." Just watched that one episode because nothing else was on. ELLEN Oh quit kidding yourself, Will. I bet you watch it all the time. I bet sometimes you wear a backwards baseball cap and a flannel shirt and you pretend your Luke. Will lets out a small nervous laughter. WILL (embarrassed) Only on the weekends. Will and Ellen begin to head toward the doors. Suddenly a girl named LYDIA, comes in the room and runs toward Will. LYDIA Hey, Will! Wait! Will stops. Lydia begins to say something into his ear. A worried look comes across. WILL Where? Where did this happen? LYDIA I think they said Centerville road. WILL Jesus! Will begins to run away. ELLEN Wait! Will what happened! WILL Tell Parker I'm not going to make it today! ELLEN What happened!? WILL Car accident. Will leaves the auditorium. Ellen realizes something. ELLEN Where is Parker? (pause) Or Ballard? SMASH CUT TO: INT. BALLARD'S CLASSROOM - SAME Parker and Ballard are sitting at her desk, deep in reading the Sex surveys from last time. PARKER Listen to this kid's, apparently his grandmother introduced him to heterosexual intercourse and his father introduced him to homosexual intercourse. Ballard opens her mouth in shock. BALLARD Oh my God. PARKER I know. BALLARD That child is going to grow up with serious problems. PARKER That or he's going to be on Maury. Pause. Both look over some of the questions. BALLARD Some of these questions are so personal. Parker scoffs. BALLARD What? PARKER Jeez, it's just sex. It's nothing big. BALLARD For some it is. PARKER Yeah for women. Ballard quickly picks up one of the surveys and tosses toward him. PARKER What's this? BALLARD So sex isn't that personal with you? Not a big thing? Then fill out one of the surveys. Pause. At first, Parker seems intimidated. PARKER Um...okay. But! Only if you fill one out too. BALLARD Fine. Ballard picks one up. Both begin to read and fill it out. Long beat. After a second, Parker begins to count on his fingers. BALLARD Huh, only needed to use one hand? PARKER I've done it with two. (after a second) Oh, you mean the other question. CUT TO: INT. WILL'S ROOM - MINUTES LATER Will runs into the room and begins to franticly search his desk. He finds a pair of keys and shoves them into his pocket. He's about to leave but stops. He quickly turns toward the phone. He gives another glance at the door. Beat. He picks the phone up and dials. MUSIC MONTAGE (SONG: "The World at Large" by Modest Mouse) FADE TO: INT. MAYBERRY HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - SAME JOEL MAYBERRY and CATHY PHENIS on the couch. Joel is laying down with his head resting on Cathy's lap. The phone rings and Joel quickly gets up and answers it. After a second, a look of worry comes across his face. CUT TO: EXT. JENNINGS HOUSE - SAME CASEY JENNINGS and BROCK WARNER are on the porch of the house. The two are trying to move a bench. Suddenly CHRIS HUGHES runs up from the street. As he is out of breath he tries to speak. After a few seconds of talking, Casey and Brock give each other a look. Brock asks a question, and Chris points in the direction of which he was running. Brock lets out a sigh before he and Casey take off running with Chris. CUT TO: INT. VANDELE HOUSE - STACY'S ROOM - MINUTES LATER On the bed, lays MARILYN. Laying on top of her is STACY CIFARETTO. Marilyn has her arms wrapped around Stacy. Marilyn says something and Stacy begins to laugh. The phone rings. Stacy leans over and picks it up. (THE MUSIC FADES OUT) She seems worried. STACY Oh fuck! Stacy hoops up, dropping the phone. MARILYN What? What is it? CUT TO: INT. AMBULANCE - LATER Jerry is on a stretcher and has a neck-brace on. Brian is sitting up but he too has a neck brace on. A paramedic I sitting there too and is having a fight with the driver of the Ambulance. DRIVER (To Paramedic) I didn't take your Chuckle, man! PARAMEDIC I had five Chuckles. I ate a green one, and the yellow one, and the red one is missing! DRIVER I don't even like Chuckles! JERRY (To Paramedic) Maybe he doesn't like them. That's possible. PARAMEDIC I want that Chuckle! You hear me?! JERRY (To Paramedic) I'll get you a Chuckle. You want me to get you a Chuckle? PARAMEDIC (Angry, to Driver) Pull over! DRIVER Pull over? Did you say pull over?! You want a piece of me?! PARAMEDIC Yeah! JERRY You're gonna fight? BRIAN Now?! PARAMEDIC Come on, man. Pull over! DRIVER Alright! I'm gonna mess you up, man! Ambulance comes to a screeching halt. Driver gets out, and the Paramedic heads for the back door. JERRY (Pleading) Really, gentlemen, please. BRIAN Where are you going? Are you crazy? PARAMEDIC I'm gonna kick his ass. BRIAN You can't leave! This is an ambulance! This is an emergency! The Paramedic leaves. Jerry and Brian watch the two fight. JERRY All this for a Chuckle. BRIAN What's a Chuckle? JERRY It's a jelly candy. it comes in five flavors. Pause. BRIAN Is it just me or does this seem familiar? JERRY No, not really. CUT TO: EXT. REICTHER HOME - SAME REICTHER is slowly walking up his driveway. He slinks his head down. REICTHER (to himself) Stupid school... He finally looks up and notices TWO DARK SUIT MEN, on of which is looking through the window. BLACK SUIT #1 I don't think anyone is home. The other Black Suit turns and notices Reicther. BLACK SUIT #2 Hello, Mr. Reicther. REICTHER (nervous) ...Hi. BLACK SUIT #2 I'm Detective Crosetti and is my partner Detective Gharty. REICTHER Holy...crap. GHARTY We're here on some very serious business Mr. Reicther. About two days ago an Iraqi exchange student, Joseph... (difficulty pronouncing) S...Sh...Shid? CROSETTI Said. Gharty gives Crosetti a look. GHARTY Do you always have to correct me? Right in front of people? CROSETTI Sorry. GHARTY Anyway, two days ago he was suppose to return to Iraq but the American family he was staying with says he's disappeared - CROSETTI (overlapping) - without a trace GHARTY It's possible he ran away - CROSETTI (overlapping) - stressed out, maybe. GHARTY Or there's that horrible possibility that he was kidnapped. CROSETTI (overlapping) - Maybe by some terrorist group. GHARTY Any way you look at it, it's bad for the U.S. CROSETTI (overlapping) - Bad for America. GHARTY So, Mr. Reicther... CROSETTI Have you seen Joseph recently? They take a few steps closer, in an attempt to make him nervous. Long beat. REICTHER (calm) ...No. Gharty and Crosetti both let out sighs of relief. GHARTY Whew. Well, that's a sigh of relief. They begin to walk away. CROSETTI Sorry for the disturbance. Reicther watches them, and begins to become worried. JOSEPH SAID comes out the front door. JOSEPH Reicther, I know what you said about eating all the Doritos but - Joseph takes notice that Reicther isn't paying attention. JOSEPH Reicther...? REICTHER (snaps out) Um...yeah? Joseph lifts up a bag of empty Doritos. JOSEPH Doritos...Gone. He hands them to Reicther and goes back into the house. Reicther lets out a long sigh. CUT TO: INT. HOSPITAL - ER - LITTLE LATER For a few seconds nothing happens we see people waiting in chairs and such Suddenly Stacy barges in looking very frustrated. Stacy walks up to the front desk. STACY Where the fuck is my little brother!? The clerk looks up at her and points off screen. Stacy turns around. We see Will, Chris, Brock, and Casey all waiting. Will waves Stacy over. Stacy looks a little embarrassed and walks over and sits down by Will. STACY Do they know what's wrong with him? WILL All they said was that he was stable. Things get quiet. Suddenly Casey's eyes get big. CASEY Hey, Chris. CHRIS What? CASEY Better take a good look. Because he comes something you don't see very often. Chris looks up and seems shocked. Joel and Cathy are walking toward the waiting area. Cathy is holding Joel's hand. CASEY (CONT'D) - A dead man walking. Everyone looks up. Stacy seems to be the only one un phased by this. Joel gives them a nervous, uneasy smile. CUT TO: INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - SAME Brian is lying in a bed, the neck brace is still on him, he is flipping through channels on the TV. Kevin comes in. KEVIN Knock, knock. How are you feeling? BRIAN As good as anyone can feel after a car crash. KEVIN Did you hurt your neck? BRIAN No, they just put this on me as a 'precautionary' measure. Kevin nods. KEVIN Sorry, I can't stay long I just wanted to see how you were. BRIAN Its okay, I'll see you latter. Kevin gets up to leave, but stops. KEVIN Oh, I almost forgot! Kevin pulls out the Jesus bobble head from his pocket and puts it on a table. KEVIN I found this in your car, I thought you could use a laugh. Brian eyes Jesus warily and smiles at Kevin. Kevin smiles back and leaves. Brian looks at Jesus, nothing happens, he looks a second longer then turns his attention back to the TV. JESUS Holy crap, you got into a car wreck with Jerry Seinfeld! What are the chances!?! Brian takes a deep sigh and puts a pillow over his head. INT. WAITING ROOM - SAME Everyone is still there. No one has hardly moved. CATHY (to Joel) I need to freshen up. Joel nods and Cathy leaves for the bathroom. When she's gone everyone looks at Joel. WILL Is there something you want to tell us Joel? Joel gives Will a dirty look. JOEL Alright, alright, the cat's out of the bag, me and Cathy are dating, alright?! Everyone looks at each other. Stacy turns and notices them. STACY We were quietly judging someone and you didn't tell me? JOEL But you guys can not, I repeat can not tell Brian. CASEY The man was in a car accident and you want us to lie to him? JOEL Not lie, just don't tell him the truth. He was just in a car accident, the last thing he needs is more problems. Brock sighs at this and begins to stare at the floor in deep thought. Kevin walks by and stops when he sees' Stacy. KEVIN Stacy? Stacy practically leaps out of her seat. STACY Where is Brian? KEVIN He's down that hall, room 37. Family members can go see him so go on ahead. Stacy heads in the direction Kevin pointed, Kevin leaves himself. Everyone is quiet a moment CHRIS Joel, if you didn't want him to find out about Cathy then why did you bring her along? Joel looks like he's about to answer but stops. His face goes blank. JOEL Stupid Joel, stupid Joel!! INT. BRIAN'S HOSPITAL ROOM - SAME Brian still has the pillow over his head. Stacy walks into the room, sees the pillow and looks shocked. STACY Brian, no! Stacy runs over and pulls the pillow of Brian's face, who just looks confused. BRIAN No what? Brian looks at Stacy for a second then realizes what she meant. BRIAN Damnit, I'm not suicidal! Stacy sits down. STACY Sorry if I assume the worst when my only brother tried to kill himself not too long ago. Brian rolls his eyes and neither one of them say anything for a moment. STACY So, how was school today? Brian doesn't say anything and just glares at her. Suddenly Brian's father, WALTER VANDELE, enters the room. WALTER Holy hell, what did you do to the car?! BRIAN I wrecked it. WALTER What did you do that for?! BRIAN I didn't do it on purpose! WALTER You expect me to believe that when you tried to hang yourself a month ago!? My own son has turned into a crazed lunatic! He walks out the door and we can hear him as he walks away: WALTER (O.S.) He's crazy absolutely crazy, where did I go wrong? STACY Don't listen to him, he's just mad. Brian looks over at the Jesus bobble head, suddenly it winks at him. BRIAN He's not far from the truth. Brian sighs. DEBBIE VANDELE enters. DEBBIE (hysterical) Oh, my God, my baby's a cripple! STACY He's not a cripple! DEBBIE Oh, this is all my fault, I should have never let him start driving! DR. ERWIN CARTER walks in. CARTER Well, Mr. Vandele all your tests came back fine. You don't have any broken bones, you don't have a concussion, and you passed your piss test with flying colors. Debbie suddenly sobers up DEBBIE Oh. CARTER However we still want you to stay overnight and see if maybe any problems that we missed arise tomorrow. Brian looks like he's about to object but Debbie beats him to it. DEBBIE Hell no! CARTER Excuse me? DEBBIE Your going to charge some kind of outrageous fee for him to stay over night. If a problem arises we'll call you in the morning! Debbie looks like she's about to leave when suddenly Jerry walks into the room. JERRY Hey there you are. Everyone but Brian seems shocked. STACY Are you Jerry Seinfeld? JERRY Yes I am, but that's not important. Jerry goes over to Debbie. JERRY I am so sorry about what happened Mrs...? DEBBIE Vandele. JERRY Right, Vandele... Jerry has a strange expression on his face. Almost as if the name sounds familiar. But the expression quickly goes away. JERRY Anyway, I would just like to say, this entire accident is all my fault and I would be more than willing to pay all the hospital bills. Debbie looks greatly relieved. Carter taps Jerry on the shoulder. CARTER Could you sign my puffy shirt? INT. HOSPITAL WAITING ROOM - SAME A nurse walks up to everyone who is still waiting. NURSE You can go see your friend now. Everyone gets up to leave. Joel pulls Cathy aside as everyone else walks away. JOEL Why don't you go on home. (hands her a set of keys) I'm not sure how long this will take and its getting late, I'll pick up the car whenever. CATHY Alright, tell Brian I hope he feels better. They hug and Cathy exits. Joel catches up to everyone and falls in step by Will. WILL Smooth, how long did it take you to think that up? JOEL Only the whole time we were sitting there. As the group walks down the hallway Jerry Seinfeld walks by, everyone stops and watches him as he disappears around a corner in the hallway. BROCK Was that Jerry Seinfeld? WILL I think it was. CASEY Crap! My puffy shirt! (pause) God damn garage sale...sold for five bucks. They all start walking again. CHRIS What's so important about this "puffy shirt?" CASEY All this time in America and you don't know? CUT TO: INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - CONTINUOUS Stacy is still there but the Doctor and Debbie are gone, Brian is playing a video game, we look up and see that he's playing Grand Theft Auto. STACY One might think that you would want nothing to do with cars right after your car accident. BRIAN You would think that wouldn't you? Everyone enters. Brian looks a little surprised. BRIAN Who died? WILL We thought you did. BRIAN Far from it, but this has certainly put a damper on my whole weekend, they want to keep me here over night. BROCK That's okay, its not like anything was going on this weekend. BRIAN Nothing goes on any weekends in this two-bit town. Brian is still playing the game but no one else says anything and it gets a little awkward. Brian notices this. BRIAN You guys can go its not like anything is going on here. Everyone nods and leaves except for Brock and Stacy. BROCK Mind if I stay a little bit? BRIAN I don't care, knock yourself out. Brock sits down next to Stacy. CUT TO: INT. REICTHER HOME - KITCHEN - SAME Joseph is sitting at the kitchen table. In front of him is a bag of crackers and a can of cheese whiz. Reicther enters from a hallway, carrying a bag. He stops and drops it to the floor. REICTHER Joseph...we have to talk. JOSEPH You have to talk...I feel talking is overrated. REICTHER I'm afraid I have to kick you out. JOSEPH (scared) What? Why? REICTHER All you do is...nothing. You eat, sleep, but besides that you do nothing. I remember a time when I did that. I can't now because I'm busying hiding you. JOSEPH You still owe me. Let's not forget this is all your fault. REICTHER Oh yeah. Well, I fail to see the connection. JOSEPH You're the one who made me afraid of my country. Afraid of joining the army. REICTHER Did you really need me to point those facts out? Your country IS nothing more then a crater from all the bombs that were dropped on it. JOSEPH We have houses! REICTHER Made out of mud and straw. And from what I've read and heard...people aren't lining up to join the Iraq army. Pause. REICTHER Sorry, Joseph. But you have to go. JOSEPH Please! Don't send me back! My country IS a shit hole. I like it here. You know how much freedom I have here? Hell, in my country I've seen people get killed over newspapers. Honest to G-d... newspaper! REICTHER Joseph, I'm not saying you have to back to Iraq...I'm saying get the hell out of my house! Reicther picks up the bag and tosses it at Joseph. He catches and seems dumbfounded. He begins to take a few steps toward the door before turning back at Reicther. JOSEPH What if I actually started to do work? REICTHER No! JOSEPH I'll be your best friend forever! REICTHER NO! JOSEPH Fine! Joseph goes to the door and opens it. Before leaving he turns to Reicther one last time. JOSEPH You know what I think? Fuck America. That's right I said fuck America! It smells and the people are rude. Joseph spits on the floor and leaves. Reicther seems a bit taken back by this. CUT TO: INT. SCHOOL - BALLARD'S ROOM - SAME Parker is sitting in a student desk, which has been pulled up to the teacher desk, and is carefully reading Ballard's sex survey. Across from him sits Ballard, herself reading Parker's Sex Survey. Parker laughs. PARKER Did lose your virginity till you were 25 huh? He laughs some more. BALLARD (smiling) At least my mom didn't buy me my first condoms. Parker's smiles is instantly gone. Pause. Both read on. CUT TO: INT. HOSIPITAL ROOM - LITTLE LATER Brian is still playing his game, no one says anything for a while. Stacy gets up. STACY I'll be right back, I have to use the little girl's room. Stacy leaves and Brock and Brian are left alone. Brian looks at Brock. BRIAN You got something on your mind? BROCK Kind of. BRIAN What's it about? BROCK (reluctant) Cathy. BRIAN (little depressed) Oh. Beat. BRIAN What is it? Brock looks confused about what to say. BROCK Its nothing really, I was just thinking that it was a good thing you got over her. BRIAN (still sounds a little down) Yeah. Brock gets up. BROCK Well, I had better go. Its getting late. BRIAN Okay, take it easy, I'll see you later. Brock leaves, he pauses at the door and looks conflicted, then quickly leaves. Brian is still playing the game after a moment nothing happens. We hear an explosion from the TV JESUS Oh snap, that mofo just shot a rocket at you! Brian flips Jesus head off his body and smiles a little. (BEGIN SONG: Pink Floyd's "Mother.") FADE TO: EXT. FIELD - NIGHT KIRK HOEY, a pot head, and Joseph lay here, stoned, looking up at the stars. Laying behind them are yards of rope, a few old planks of wood and a yard stick. KIRK Combine seasons with colors. JOSEPH How? KIRK Like galactic summer orange. Pause. Joseph giggles and gives him a look. JOSEPH What? KIRK Soft virgin summer. Joseph chuckles. KIRK I'm dead without summer. JOSEPH No, you're not. KIRK Precious mountains stand arm-in-arm, growing toward the sky of dreams. JOSEPH When? KIRK In our youth. JOSEPH What do you mean? KIRK I mean that the adolescent, thin necks of youth, rise toward that doorway known to me as the bottom of the evening sky. JOSEPH I don't know what you're talking about. KIRK That's okay. Neither do I. They both laugh hysterically. KIRK (CONT'D) Hey, what does 'Fuusa' mean again? JOSEPH (pause) It's difficult to translate. We zoom out to see "FU USA" written in the middle of the corn field with Kirk and Joseph sitting in the 'F.' They continue to stare at the stars. FADE OUT. END OF EPISODE
