                      No you think Sherlock.

                                JOE
                      We're stuck.

                                KHAMBREL

                                KHAMBREL
                      Typical.

                                JOE
                      You know people might actually
                      like you if you didn't have such
                      a bad attitude.

                                KHAMBREL
                      Well people wouldn't think you
                      were so stupid if you actually
                      tried for once in your life
                      instead of getting by on looks
                      and athletic ability.

                                                                CROSS FADE:

            RANDOM SHOTS OF THE TWO GUYS PACING AROUND AND SITTING AND DOING
            A BUNCH OF RANDOM THINGS.

            (WE NOW SEE JOE AND KHAMBREL SITTING ACROSS THE ROOM LOOKING
            DOWN AND THINKING ABOUT HOW THEY'RE GONNA GET OUT.)

                                KHAMBREL
                      So tell me Joe how is it that you
                      managed to get locked in the
                      closest huh?

                                JOE
                      I didn't know this door locked
                      I'm not a nerd I don't know every
                      janitors room in the school by
                      heart and which ones lock and
                      don't lock.

                                KHAMBREL
                      Why...

                                JOE
                      Why what?

                                KHAMBREL
                      Why did you hit me I never did
                      anything to you.

                                JOE
                      Because... I don't know because
                      your gay!

                                KHAMBREL
                      Just because I'm gay doesn't mean
                      I don't have feelings just
                      because I'm gay doesn't mean I'm
                      not a person Joe you and every
                      other freaking person in this
                      school has looked at me like I
                      was diseased did you ever stop to
                      think that even though you beat
                      up some gay kid that the gay kid
                      actually has feelings or every
                      time you call a gay kid a name
                      like fag or queer that you kill
                      them on the inside you are the
                      reason why people commit suicide
                      Joe you are the reason teens are
                      scared to go outside anymore and
                      be themselves because they are
                      too concerned about what the
                      general media will say about
                      them. You think the gay
                      population is contaminating the
                      world its really your kind Joe
                      the shallow, feelingless,
                      heartless, shallow person who is
                      always running for money,
                      popularity, and girls who you get
                      a new one every week. You Joe are
                      contaminating the public not
                      gays.

            (THERE IS DEAD SILENCE AFTER KHAMBREL GIVES HIS SPEECH AND JOE
            HAS HIS HEAD DOWN AND IS UPSET.)

                                JOE
                      ... I never thought about it like
                      that.

                                KHAMBREL
                      That is your problem Joe you
                      never stop to think ever since we
                      were best friends back in like
                      6th grade you never stop to think
                      about me and you, it was always
                      you in the lime light.

                                JOE
                      ... I'm sorry I never once
                      thought that out I guess I mean I
                      didn't know...

            (JOE BREAKS DOWN AND HIS EYES FILL UP WITH WATER.)

                                                                CROSS FADE:

            INT. JANITORS CLOSET - MOMENTS LATER

            (KHAMBREL AND JOE ARE NOW BACK TO BACK SITTING TALKING ENJOYING
            EACH OTHERS COMPANY.)

                                JOE 
                      So... Why are you gay?

                                KHAMBREL
                      Because it is part of who I am I
                      didn't choose to be gay I mean
                      just because a lot of people
                      don't choose that path doesn't
                      mean its the wrong one.

                                JOE
                      I don't get it.

                                KHAMBREL
                      Okay put it like this some people
                      cant accept it..they say things
                      like "they made Adam and eve, not
                      Adam and Steve!" But you
                      know...maybe Steve has a better
                      personality then eve......I think
                      its selfish to like people for
                      their body parts....you should
                      fall in love with someone because
                      they have a good personality,
                      nice, kind, sweet, etc.....
                      whether they be the same sex or
                      not.. I just happened to find
                      that my boy friend has all the
                      personality so it makes me unique
                      or as you call it gay but I'm
                      happy though and nobody can take
                      that from me.

                                JOE
                      So it should be about falling in
                      love no matter what sex it is
                      just as long as it makes you
                      happy?

                                KHAMBREL
                      Yeah... Pretty much

                                JOE
                      Wow never thought about it like
                      that.

                                KHAMBREL
                      Yeah....

            (THERE IS BRIEF MOMENT OF SILENCE AND JOE TURNS AROUND AND LOOKS
            AT KHAMBREL AND KISSES HIM AND KHAMBREL KISSES BACK WHEN THE
            DOOR SUDDENLY FLIES OPEN AND THE JANITOR IS STANDING IN THE DOOR
            WAY.)

                                JANITOR
                      You two are in big trouble.

                                                                  FADE OUT:

            INT. JOES ROOM - NIGHT

            (AFTER JOE'S LITTLE INCIDENT IN THE CLOSET HE IS SLEEPING BUT IS
            ONCE AGAIN TOSSING AND TURNING HE GETS UP AND LEAVES AGAIN.)

                                                                    CUT TO:

                                                                    CUT TO:

            CLOSE UP OF OUR CHARACTER IN HIS FACE.

            (WE NOW ARE IN JOE'S FACE WHEN HE HEARS VOICE OVERS OF GUYS
            SAYING SEDUCING THINGS TO HIM.)

                                (V.O.)
                      Whats the matter scared of me?

                                JOE

                      Why not you know you like me.

                                JOE
                      No I don't I'm a jock I'm not
                      gay.

            (ALL OF A SUDDEN WE SEE THIS IMAGINARY CHARACTER POP OUT OF HIS
            HEAD AND INTO REALITY STANDING IN FRONT OF HIM JOE IS IN SHOCK
            THAT THIS PERSON IS HERE.)

                      You can't be I made you up!

            (OUR ILLUSION DISAPPEARS AND REAPPEARS BEHIND HIM AND IN HIS EAR
            WHISPERING TO HIM.)

            EXT. JOE'S HOUSE - AFTERNOON

            (JOE IS SITTING OUTSIDE THINKING ABOUT HIS LIFE WHEN KHAMBREL

                      you it was wrong.

                                JOE
                      No... its not that, Its just that
                      you told me I should be with
                      someone because of they're
                      personality and not because of
                      things people run after and I
                      think I have feelings for you and
                      I feel this thing I have never
                      felt before I feel truly happy.
