on the hood of the car.
Hi, my name is Jason Walker, your
I saw you looking at me.
No, I was...
I don't mind, it's nice to be
So, would you like to help me with
some of these heavy boxes?
What about that guy you moved in
My dad? He's at work, can you
Yeah, of course.
She kisses him on the cheek; he grabs a few bags from the

The door opens and they walk in, the room has a bed and
some vanity tables but the room is mostly bare. Jason
puts the bags down and sits on the end of the bed; he
sniffs as Danielle sits beside him.
What is it?
What is that smell.
Jason smells in her direction and shakes his head.
No, that's not it but you do smell
Oh that, I am not sure what it is.
I'll probably buy some air
fresheners and stuff to get rid of
it but it's not that much of a
It would annoy me.
I have to get my television hooked
up so I can watch this week's
episode of Banana Chan.
Is it new?
Well to me it is.
I watched "Secrets" on Monday, but
I didn't know they repeated it
I had a friend tape it for me
before I left, but don't tell me
what's going to happen, I like
Oh, you will be.

than starts up the stairs.
INT. HOUSE - HALLWAY - DAY
Kenny walks down the hall looking around, when suddenly
he hears the shower and a song.
What a girl wants, what a girl
needs, whatever makes me happy

Kenny starts laughing to himself as she continues to sing
the song; he places his ear against the door. Kenny walks
away, than jumps back into the doorway.
Kenny runs away.

Jason and Arcadio sit on the futon listening to the
So, we're in the process of
writing a sequel to Red Phoenix at
That's awesome, I'd kiss you but
since we're on my bed it would be
a little weird.
Yeah, please don't.
They're interrupted by Kenny who half stumbles down the
stairs and stands bent over in front of them out of
Danielle... She's in the shower...
Yeah and she came onto me.
Kenny laughs and a few silent moments go by.
What are we going to do today?
I've got an important business
meeting to be at but I do hope
Barbara and I can catch a movie
I know, it's called sarcasm, but
seriously, what are we going to
I'm going to hangout with
Jason shrugs his shoulders.
Fine, I'll go hang out with Casey.
Kenny scoffs as he turns to leave.
EXT. STREET - DAY
Barbara and Poppy walk down the street.
What shall we do today?
Um, let's go see Jason.
Sure, why not.
Where's Arcadio? I thought you two
were getting to know each other.
Barbara looks at Poppy, she looks back.
Did you give yourself to him and
he skipped town?
He had some business to attend to,
we're getting together later.
Has he bought you anything
expensive, that's what I expect of
You know Jason is poor, so what
can he buy you that is special?
Oh, he has money.
I've known him for most of our
adult lives; I know he doesn't
Barbara shakes her head as they turn into a small beauty

Barbara and Poppy come down the stairs, John smiles.
He's not here, you're welcome to

Where is he?
I think he's over at the new
Barbara looks at Poppy.
Well, let's come back later.
Why don't you go over there now?
Yeah, let's go.
I'll be with you in a minute.
Poppy disappears back up the stairs, Barbara turns to
What is wrong with you?
Jason is probably over there
hitting on the new girl, this
could hurt Poppy's feelings.
Have you seen the new girl?
Okay, I love my son and all but
she's way out of his league.
Maybe, but there's something about
him that women find desirable.
Like his father.
John rubs his large his stomach, Barbara walks away.
EXT. HOUSE - DAY
Poppy exits the house and sees Jason and Danielle coming
out of her house, they head over toward them.
Hi girls, this is Danielle.

We were just thinking about
renting a movie, you two wanna
No, we have other things to do.
Okay, well I'll talk to you later
Jason and Danielle walk off; Poppy puts her hands on her
Can you believe this?
I don't know what to say.
How about "Jason is a whore"
No, he's not. He hasn't been with
that many women.
He's been using me.
Poppy sits down on the porch, Barbara sits beside her.
They might just be friends, like
Jason and I are.
No, I know men. They want there
cake and to eat it to and I'm not
going to be the goddamned cake.
You're not the cake, just give it
Poppy wipes away a tear.
I will not let Jason just leave me
like this; it's time to confront
Poppy gets up and walks after Jason and Danielle, Barbara

Hey, bitch! Up here.
Kenny looks up to see Casey looking over the edge of the
What are you doing up there?
This is my spot; I bring the
chicks up here and make them
Then I'm not coming up there.
Come on, stop being a puss.
Casey throws a rope ladder over the edge that reaches
down to where Kenny stands; he hesitates a moment and
starts to climb up.
INT. CONVENIENCE STORE - DAY
The Clerk sits behind the counter looking around the
store, Danielle and Jason enter.
They enter the movie section which is fairly large, two
giant walls full of different types of movies sorted by
signs saying the genre.
What should we get?
Why not just get one each and
watch them both.
Sounds like a plan.
They continue to look, Jason quickly picks up Street
Fighter and smiles. Danielle takes her time and grabs
Clerks. She holds it up for Jason to see it.
Come on, you don't know what
Clerks is? What, have you been
living under a rock?
And here I was thinking you were
She rolls her eyes and walks away.
I'm cool... Really, I am.
Jason runs after her, The Clerk jumps out in front of him
scaring him backwards.
You, I don't trust you. Always
coming in here with your friends
touching everything, well for now
on you touch, you buy.
What if I want to buy a magazine,
I have to lift it up in order to
see the price.
My foot is down.
He lifts his foot up and than stops it down, he points at
it and walks away.
Is he high?

There is a tent set up to one side, a television set up
with a long cable going into a vent and a large umbrella
covering them from rain just out of sight from the
Casey stands at the edge pulling up the rope ladder while
Kenny browses through channels landing on a porn network
How did you manage to get these?
Duh, I live in the back of this
cinema and I've connected a third
party cable to my parents home box
in order to steal it for myself
without there knowledge.
The perfect crime.
Underneath this rough exterior and
boyish good looks is a genius only
out witted by few ugly assed
bitches, I am the only beautiful
Don't go for the award yet my
friend, anybody can steal cable.
You should never lie to a friend,
since we're not friends you should
always lie to me. How's that bitch
Jason doing anyway?
Hanging out with the new girl.
He gets all the fresh pussy, I
seen that girl and had to jerk of
a few times to get her off my
mind, you know?
Not really, no.
Liar, man you're one of the worst
liars ever. All guys jerk off,
they did some tests and shit, it's
in our nature.
Well, I don't.
Casey walks over and pats him on the shoulder.
The first step is admitting it.
Kenny pushes him away.
Coming from a boy, that's just
sick. Believe me I haven't had a
reason to jerk off anyway, prison
Bitch that was community prison,
even little kids like myself go
there for "hard time"
He starts to laugh hysterically, Kenny breaks his glance
at the sexual acts on television to watch Casey role
around on the ground laughing.
So, are you done?
Casey stops, gets up and wipes a tear from his eye. He
clears his throat and wipes off the dirt.
Now I'm done.
You're a sad excuse for a teen.
I haven't laughed that hard since
Michael Jackson said he was
What, now you're hating on MJ?
Casey does a moon walk and grabs himself.
EXT. STREET - DAY
Jason and Danielle walk down the street.
After I watch Banana Chan, do you
want to watch Clerks?
You wanna watch them tonight?
I don't know... I just thought,
Yeah, that would be alright. It's
not like I had any better plans.
Street Fighter is a better movie
Danielle looks over at him, he smiles back at her.
EXT. JASON'S HOUSE - DAY
Jason and Danielle get closer and closer as Poppy stands
at his door, she walks over to where they stand.
I thought we had something.
We did, we do... What's this
Me, she's jealous.
But we're just friends.
Yeah, that's how it starts. Guys
don't have girls as friends unless
they want something.
Yeah, fun. Barbie and Danielle are
both really cool girls to hang out
with, if you can't handle that
than maybe you should go home.
Poppy breathes a loud angry sigh, she than grabs
Danielle's hair and takes her down to the ground. They
start to throw punches and pull each others hair; Jason
grabs Poppy off of Danielle and holds her away.
Stop fighting or I'll call the
cops, just go home and cool down.
This isn't over, you slut.
Poppy turns to Jason and slaps him with a loud thud.
Poppy storms off down the street, Jason helps Danielle to
I'm sorry about that.
She brushes herself off.
Its okay, I'm used to it.
It's all my fault, like usual I
don't make my feelings clear
Are you alright?
I will be.
Jason and Danielle walk over to her house and disappear
INT. DANIELLE'S ROOM - DAY
Jason and Danielle sit on her bed with the two movies
neatly placed on top of the television and on the
television are the final credits of Banana Chan.
That was a good episode, I hate
waiting until next week though.
It's like torture for people with
no personal lives.
You should have been there when I
found out they were making another
three more Star Wars films.
INT. BASEMENT - A COUPLE YEARS BEFORE
A younger Jason sits on a bed watching a commercial.
TV VOICE (O.S.)
In only a couple months the new
Star Wars film will be released.
This highly anticipated prequel to
the hugely successful Star Wars
trilogy is expected to be just as
Jason jumps up screaming and bouncing on his bed when it
gives way and crumbles to the floor.
INT. DANIELLE'S ROOM - DAY
Danielle looks at him as if he was a geek.
Not quite like that.
That's why I have a futon.
I wasn't sure where the episode
was headed when Buster was
approached by a member of DeMolay
to join them; I thought for sure
he'd join for no other reason than
Why would he do that though?
I don't know, cause he's cool.
He abuses women, is that the kind
of man you want?
At least he admits he has a
problem afterwards unlike real
Isn't the whole point to make the
Then there is the love between
Buster and Maiko, it's nice to see
everything work out.
But it didn't really all work out.
Maiko ran out on Buster and we
don't actually know what happens
until next week and than there's
this whole business with the
Best part of the episode was the
fight between Buster and the
What is it with you guys? I was
left with the feeling that
everything will work itself out;
you're just too immature for this
Danielle and Jason continue to talk.
INT. THERAPISTS OFFICE - DAY
Kenny sits with Dr. Cumming who doesn't have his notepad
Why did you request we speak so
It's Jason; he's found a girl who
has kinda filled my role.
Why don't you tell him that?
Because for once he's happy, he
has everything he needs and more
and I don't wanna be the one who
ruins it for him.
I remember our last session when
you proclaimed that and I quote
"You would kill me if I f-ing told
anybody about you being here" Did
you mean that and do you still
Yes, I can't suffer the shit that
comes along with our meeting being
common knowledge. It would be
worse than being gay or being
raped in prison, it just would.
It could change the way Jason
feels about me, and I can't have
Do you love Jason?
Hell no, I ain't gay. What the
fuck kinda head doctor asks that
shit, do I look like I enjoy
sucking cock and getting man juice
squirted in my mouth? Hell no, I
You need to work on the language
and the anger issues, I meant as a
I guess you can say that I love
Jason... As a friend.
Kenny shifts his weight uncomfortably.
INT. DANIELLE'S ROOM - NIGHT
Jason and Danielle lay back against her pillows watching
the ending of Clerks as Randal does his dance on the way
out of Quick Stop.
Danielle rolls over on top of Jason straddling his waist,
she starts to kiss him. Jason quickly pushes her off and
sits up with a dazed look on his face.
Don't you wanna get to know each
other first and stuff?
Not really, but I just want to
kiss you. Is that such a problem?
She starts to kiss him again and again he pushes her off,
this time he gets to his feet.
I... Uh, have to go. I'll talk to
you tomorrow, okay?
Jason leaves Danielle on the bed, she's confused and not
to sure of what to do now.
INT. BASEMENT - NIGHT
Jason walks down the stairs with a dazed look on his
face; Kenny sits on the futon with a smile on his face.
I've decided only to date Midgets.
(With his mind
Because everything is big to
them... Get it? Because they are
Kenny starts laughing but soon notices Jason not laughing
You really know how to kill a good
joke, don't you?
Jason plops down on the futon and puts his head down,
Kenny looks over at him.
What's wrong, man?
I keep screwing it up with these
girls, Danielle and Poppy both
want me but I can't love either of
them without the guilt of the
other hanging over my head.
Can I have one then?
This is serious. I have so much in
common with Danielle and yet Poppy
and I have this raw chemistry
together, it's tearing me apart
You know what always helps?
He starts to hum the beat to "Candy Shop by 50 Cent"
I'll take you to the candy shop,
I'll let you lick the lollypop, go
'head girl don't you stop, keep
going 'til you hit the spot...
He continues to hum the rest of the song.
