     TEASER:

     INT. STUDY HALL-MORNING

     Chris is alone at his desk drawing in his notebook. Kate 
     walks up to him and notices the picture. It's a picture 
     of a Clown kicking the Kool-Aid man in the ass.

                                KATE
                    You know, I hope that's some kind
                    of metaphor.

     Chris freaks out and closes the notebook. Kate sits down 
     next to him.

                                KATE
                    I'm Kate by the way.

                                CHRIS
                    Oh, hi...uh, I'm Chris.

     Brief pause.

                                CHRIS
                    You know, I don't think I've seen 
                    you in here before. Are you new 
                    here?

                                KATE
                    I started school here but then went
                    somewhere else for a little bit.
                    Now I'm back and enjoying all that
                    this trashy redneck ignorant school
                    has to offer.

                                CHRIS
                    So I'm guessing you have some
                    resentment towards this school too
                    huh?

                                KATE
                    How did you figure that out?

     Chris smiles.

                                CHRIS
                    Umm, where did you go during that
                    time you were gone?

                                KATE
                    Oh I was having some problems at
                    home so they sent me to Eastern
                    Psyche.

                                CHRIS
                    Oh Eastern Psyche...sounds...kinky.

     Kate laughs.

                                KATE
                    Oh Dammit! The bell is about to
                    ring. Do I have any other classes
                    with you?

                                CHRIS
                    None that I can think of off the 
                    top of my head.

     The bell rings and the class begins to disperse.

                                KATE
                    Meet me.

                                CHRIS
                    Already have.

                                KATE
                    Ha, ha you sarcastic twat. I mean 
                    after school.

                                CHRIS
                    Oh. You really sure you want to do 
                    that?

                                KATE
                    Of course.

                                CHRIS
                    You really going to be there? Your 
                    not just going to stand me up?

                                KATE
                    I Promise.

                                CHRIS
                    Cross your heart?

                                KATE
                    Hope to die, stick a fucking needle 
                    in my eye.

                                CHRIS
                    That sounds both painful and truthful.

                                KATE
                           (small smile)
                    I'll find you after school.

                                CHRIS
                    Okay.

     Chris smiles and they both walk there separate ways. 
     Chris looks up.

                                CHRIS
                    You know, Jesus. Considering my 
                    people horse whipped you and killed 
                    you, you're a pretty nice guy 
                    considering.

     A nearby bulletin board falls.

                                CHRIS
                    You don't have to say it, I'm 
                    already gone.

     OPENING CREDIT SEQUENCE:

     AFTER CREDITS:

     INT. SCHOOL - HALLWAY - AFTERNOON

     The hall is mostly empty with the exception of one or 
     two stragglers. At his locker is, Will. Joel suddenly 
     pops up from around the corner.

                                JOEL
                    There you are.

     Will quickly begins to walk away.

                                WILL
                    Forget it, Joel.

                                JOEL
                    Wait, Will!

                                WILL
                    It's bad enough I know. It'd be 
                    even worse if I did this.

                                JOEL
                    Will, you've got to help me! You're 
                    my only friend that actually knows 
                    about her.

                                WILL
                    I never repeat myself. You know 
                    where I stand on this Joel.

                                JOEL
                    Please, Will! I'm begging you. All 
                    you have to do, is show up. Watch 
                    the movie with me, Cathy, and one 
                    of her friends and that's it.

                                WILL
                    Like I said before Joel...I never 
                    repeat myself.

     Joel is about to say something but stops.

                                JOEL
                    I know this whole Cathy thing is 
                    really fucked up -

                                WILL
                    - No shit. Listen, I already know 
                    how this night is going to end up. 
                    We show up, we wait, and Cathy 
                    arrives. I end up spending the rest 
                    of the movie feeling like a dick 
                    for being the  third wheel.

                                JOEL
                    But really, this is just a group 
                    activity.

                                WILL
                    Just a group activity?

                                JOEL
                    Yes. It's not a date at all. Not even a 
                    form of a date. Just me, you, Cathy, 
                    and her friend watching a movie.

     Will thinks.

                                WILL
                    I do like movies.

                                JOEL
                    So are you in?

                                WILL
                    I'm sorry, I jus -

                                JOEL
                    Great. Pick you up at seven.

     Joel walks away.

     INT. LUNCHROOM - MINUTES LATER

     Will, Brian, Joel, Brock, Casey, Reicther, and Chris all 
     sit around the lunch table, eating and talking. Just 
     then, Will dips his piece of chicken into the ketchup.

                                BROCK
                    You put that stuff on everything.

                                WILL
                    Well, "that stuff" makes everything 
                    tastes better.

				   REICTHER
                    You're just full of bad habits, 
                    aren't you? Drinking caffeine like 
                    a mad man, putting that on every 
                    bit of food.

                                WILL
                    Your such an honest asshole, 
                    Reicther.

                                BROCK
                    Well, he is right. You do put that 
                    stuff on everything.

				   WILL
                    C'mon guys, lighten up. It just 
                    makes it better. I mean name me one 
                    type food that's not better if you 
                    put something on it?

     Everyone begins to think about it.

                                CHRIS
                    Um...ice cream?

                                JOEL
                    Nope. You can put chocolate sauce 
                    on it.

     The group continues to think.

                                CASEY
                              (proud)
                    Cereal.

                                WILL
                    Are you stupid, Casey? Milk. Or 
                    sometimes sugar. It depends on what 
                    type of cereal.

                                REICTHER
                    I've got it.

                                WILL
                    What?

                                REICTHER
                    Cheese.

     Will begins to think.

                                WILL
                    Cheese? Wait a minute that doesn't 
                    count.

                                REICTHER
                    Why doesn't it count?

                                WILL
                    Cheese is more of a condiment. It's 
                    something you pour on a food to 
                    make is better.

                                JOEL
                    Wait a minute, it is a food.

                                WILL
                    No way. It's a condiment.

     Will puts down his fork.

                                WILL
                    I mean you put cheese on your salad. 
                    Cheese on your taco. Hell, even 
                    cheese on a cracker makes the 
                    cracker better.

                                BROCK
                    We're a bunch of fools. We're 
                    arguing about cheese.

                                CHRIS
                    God, he's right.

     Short pause as everyone goes back to eating.

                                                           SWIPE TO:

     INT. LUNCHROOM - MINUTES LATER

     Most of the Gang finish up their meals.                

                                BRIAN
                    So what's everyone up to, tonight?

                                WILL
                          (quickly blurts 
                          out)
                    Movies!

     There is a thump under the table.

                                WILL
                    Ow!

     Will gives a glance at Joel, who seems confused.

                                JOEL
                    What?

                                REICTHER
                    Sorry, Will. I was aiming for Casey 
                    WHO STOLE MY CHIPS!

                                CASEY
                    They weren't yours!

     Brian sighs.

                                BRIAN
                    Chris, what are you doing tonight?

                                CHRIS
                    Going out with Kate

                                CASEY
                    Kate? Who's Kate?

                                WILL
                    The name of his right hand.

     The group laughs.

                                CHRIS
                    No asshole, I met her in study hall
                    today. She seems nice.

                                BRIAN
                    Okay then... your name is off the
                    list. Reicther what about you?

                                REICHTER
                    I am going to play with my father's 
                    taser gun. Then me and Casey are 
                    going to fight with my dad's police vest 
                    and police helmet.

     Casey smiles like an idiot.

                                CASEY
                    I'm his guinea pig.                             

                                BRIAN
                    Dammit. Brock, I know you have to 
                    be free.

     Brock seems offended.

                                BROCK
                    Well, not to prove you right, but I 
                    am. Plan A through R have failed 
                    so my night is now open.

                                BRIAN
                    Does no one want to hang out with
                    me anymore?

                                WILL
                    Its not that we don't like you or
                    anything. We just -

                                REICTHER
                    Don't like you.

     Reicther smiles. There's small, scattered laughter among 
     the group. The bell rings and they leave. Brian sits 
     there a few seconds and thinks.

                                BRIAN
                    Oh yeah, well your du -, oh you 
                    already left.

     INT. HUGHES HOME - AFTER SCHOOL

     Chris is looking through his closet, looking for 
     something.

                                CHRIS
                    I need to dress to impress.

     After a few seconds of looking he stops.

                                CHRIS
                    Hello, hello.

     EXT. HUGHES HOUSE - MINUTES LATER

     Chris slowly emerges from the house, wearing a small, 
     black trench coat. He looks down at his watch and begins 
     to run down the street.

                                                           CUT TO:

     EXT. PARK - MINUTES LATER

     Chris is standing by the swings, pacing back and forth.

                                CHRIS
                    Where the hell is she?

                                KATE (O.S.)
                    Please don't do it!

     Kate walks up behind Chris.

                                CHRIS
                    Don't do what?

                                KATE
                    Please don't kill yourself...or me 
                    for that matter.

                                CHRIS
                    Kill myself?

                                KATE
                    Yeah.

                                CHRIS
                    You know I don't want to be rude, 
                    but is their a particular reason 
                    why you think I'm a suicidal?

     Brief pause as Kate sizes Chris up.

                                KATE
                    The trench coat.

                                CHRIS
                    The trench coat?

     She nods.

                                KATE
                    Well, I saw a thing on the news 
                    where they said that 10% of 
                    suicidals wear trench coats.

                                CHRIS
                    On the news?

                                KATE
                    Yeah.

                                CHRIS
                    Ever think that I fall into that 
                    other 90%.

                                KATE
                    Not really. Considering your social 
                    Status and the fact that I don't 
                    know a damn thing about you.

                                CHRIS
                    I think that number is bullshit. 40% 
                    of percentages are useless.

     Pause. Kate stares into Chris's eyes.

                                KATE
                    I didn't want to ask, but what's up 
                    with the accent?

     Chris looks confused.

                                CHRIS
                    I'm from England. Didn't you know?

                                KATE
                    Oh thank god! I just thought you
                    made it up.

     Chris seems confused.

                                CHRIS
                    Made it up?

                                KATE
                    My last boyfriend made up a 
                    Scottish accent he used to use all 
                    the time. Needless to say it didn't 
                    really work out after that.

                                CHRIS
                    Oh that sucks. This swing is
                    making me bored.

                                KATE
                    Theirs the tire swing. We can go on 
                    that.

     She grabs his hand and they run over to the tire swing.

                                CHRIS
                    You know from the time I came to
                    American I've seen a lot of
                    different swings, but I know this
                    one looks dangerous.

                                KATE
                    Its not that bad. You just get in
                    the middle and run. Take yourself
                    over the bushes and then use the 
                    tree to stop yourself.

                                CHRIS
                    Sounds too complicated for a swing

                                KATE
                    Its not trust me

     She looks at him and smiles. He gets in and starts to 
     run to gain momentum. As he's running down he trips on a 
     tree root and goes hear first into he jagger bushes. You 
     can't see him you can only hear him falling and breaking 
     branches. There's nothing but silence as Kate runs over.

                                KATE 
                    Chris, where are you? Are you hurt?

                                CHRIS
                    If I said I couldn't feel my left
                    arm, would that be a bad thing?

                    I'm really uncomfortable about all

                    I know...you feel like your

                                WILL
                    Actually, I've gotten past that. 
                    I am uncomfortable about being a 
                    third wheel.

                                JOEL
                    Don't worry, she'll bring someone.

     Will shakes his head.

                    Nope. All your gonna get out of me 
                    is mean sarcastic responses until a 
                    fourth person walks through that 
                    door.

                                WILL
                    Yeah, right. All I'm doing is 
                    bitching and moanin -

     Joel looks at his watch and turns around. He only 
     sees Cathy walk through the door. She sees him and wave. 
     Joel puts on a fake smile and waves back.

                    for anybody.

     Cathy sits down next to Joel.

                                CATHY
                    Hey Will.

     Will lots stunned, he then looks over at Joel with a 
     disapproving look. Joel's face goes into his hand, 
     embarrassed.

                                CATHY
                    Joel, are you okay?

                                JOEL
                    I'm fine.

     It gets black. Cathy looks forward, Joel looks over to Will.

                    You want to go knick-knocking?
                    That's fun.

                    walking mat I've become for our

     Brian starts to bunker down and really think.

                    Oh! We can take Stacy's car. That'll

                    lot more exciting.

                                BROCK
                    You wouldn't.

                                BRIAN
                    I would.

                    Whenever you tried to steal that 
                    pen at the bank you broke down 
                    crying and ending up giving it back. 
                    This is a wee bit bigger.

                                BRIAN
                    That was a year ago, I'm a changed

                    What took you so long?

                                BRIAN
                    Oh, a bit impatient are we?

                                BROCK
                    I'm sorry I just feel so superior
                    to you. HA-HA

                                BRIAN
                    You're a crazy son of a bitch.

     They get in the car. Brian starts it up and begins to 
     back out of the driveway. The CAMERA PANS back to the 
     house.

     INT. STACY'S ROOM - SAME

     Stacy and Marilyn are in the bed together. Marilyn is 
     resting her head on Stacy's chest. Stacy seems to 
     panting a bit. It becomes clear that they've just finish 
     making love.

                                STACY
                    Jesus...

                                MARILYN
                    You okay?

                                STACY
                    Yeah, I guess I'm just not...
                    "broken in" yet.

                                MARILYN
                    Well, don't worry. You'll get use 
                    to it after a few more times.

     Stacy looks worried. Long Silence.

                                STACY
                    Yeah...about us having lesbian sex 
                    again...I've been thinking long and 
                    hard about this...and I was 
                    thinking...I was thinking about 
                    trying a guy out...you know it's 
                    nothing against you or anything...
                    It's just like when you've been 
                    reading "Superman" comics all your 
                    life. Than when you're about to 
                    graduate and you finally want to 
                    see what this "Batman" is all about. 
                    Then after a while of "Batman" you 
                    kinda miss "Superman" once you 
                    realize that "Batman" is a bit too 
                    much for you.

     She looks down and notices that Marilyn is sleeping.

                                STACY
                    Oh for Christ's sake.

     Marilyn snores. Stacy shakes Marilyn a bit.

                                MARILYN
                    Wh-What?

                                STACY
                    You weren't paying attention.

                                MARILYN
                    Yes, I was. You were going on and 
                    on about "Batman" or something.

     Stacy sighs.

                                STACY
                    Marilyn...I think you should leave.

                                MARILYN
                    Wait! Stacy, I was only joking.

                                STACY
                    It's not that.

     Marilyn stares and is about to say something but Stacy 
     grabs her hand.

                                MARILYN
                    But what if -

                                STACY
                    Please.
                         (kisses her hand)
                    Go.

     Marilyn, confused, slowly gets up.

                                                         CUT TO:

     EXT. THEATRE - NIGHT

     The movie is letting out. Joel and Cathy are walking 
     together. Will is walking 4 feet behind them watching 
     the ground as he walks. A VAN pulls up.

                                CATHY
                    Well that's my mom. I'll be seeing 
                    you later.

                                JOEL
                    Okay. Until next time.

     Cathy smiles and gets into the van. The VAN slowly 
     drives away leaving Joel and Will standing there.

     Long pause. Will stands there staring at Joel. 
     After another long pause, Joel finally turns to Will.

                                JOEL
                    Well...it's still, early. Want to 
                    grab something to eat?

     Long pause.

                                WILL
                    "Until next time."

                                JOEL
                    What are you doing man?

                                WILL
                    What are YOU doing. That's the
                    better question.

     Joel looks confused.

                                JOEL
                    Explain.

                                WILL
                    Your a jackass for bringing me 
                    along for the ride. Admit it you 
                    knew no fourth person would show up.

                                JOEL
                    I honestly thought someone was 
                    going to come.

     Will gaffs. 

                               JOEL
                    OK sorry, I need you here though.
                    When your here I'm more comfortable. 
                    Do you know what I'm saying?

                               WILL
                    Not really.

                               JOEL
                    Do you want me to explain?

                               WILL
                    Not really.

     An awkward silence.

                                WILL
                    Next time, if you want an 
                    icebreaker. Just say so.

                                JOEL
                    All right.

                                WILL
                    Now, what don't we go see what 
                    Brock and Brian are up to.

     INT. WILL'S LIVING ROOM - MINUTES LATER

     Will is standing by a small table, talking on the phone. 
     Joel is sitting on the couch watching TV.

                                BROCK (O.S.)
                    Hello?

                                WILL
                    Hey man. How's it going?

                                BROCK
                    Nothing much. Just driving around 
                    in stolen vehicle with Brian. 

                                WILL
                    You're in a car? Where are you 
                    going?

                                BROCK
                    Nowhere. Brian took Stacy's car.
                    You want to get picked up?

                                WILL
                    Yeah. (laughs a bit) I have to see 
                    this for myself. Me and Joel are at 
                    my house. By

     Will hangs up the phone and smiles.

                                                          CUT TO:

     EXT. PARK - NIGHT

     Chris and Kate are on top of the monkey bars. Their both
     laughing.

                                CHRIS
                    ...so He jumps out of the supply
                      box and yells "SUPPLIES, SUPPLIES"

     Kate starts to crack up.

                                CHRIS
                    Wow, you found that joke funny,
                    Amazing.

                                KATE
                    What can I say, no one says corny
                    jokes anymore so their hilarious to
                    me.

     An awkward moment. Then Chris goes in for the kiss. He 
     kisses her for only a little bit then looks the other 
     way sheepishly

                                KATE
                    Good god, what took you so long?

     Chris smiles and he begins to kiss her again. He guides 
     his hand up her arm and notices something different. He 
     looks down and she has many scars on her wrists. Some 
     even look recent.

                                CHRIS
                    What is this?

                                KATE
                    Oh remember? Eastern Psyche? It's a 
                    place for troubled teens.

                               CHRIS
                    I'm confused.

                               KATE
                    Don't worry about it. Now come and
                    kiss me you cute little tart

                               CHRIS
                    Uh, sor-I'm sorry I gotta go.

     Chris hurriedly gets up and walks away. Kate looks 
     saddened.

     EXT. VANDELE HOME - SAME

     Stacy comes out of the house. She slowly makes her way 
     toward the driveway only to see that her car is missing.

                                STACY
                    Oh what the fuck!?

     Pause.

                                STACY
                    Well, Marilyn was always good with 
                    revenge.

                                VOICE (O.S.)
                    Miss! Miss!

     DAVE ATTANASIO comes running up to her.

                                DAVE
                    Thank God I found you.

     Stacy begins to stare at him.

                                DAVE (CONT'D)
                    I think your car was stolen!

                                STACY
                           (still staring)
                    ...Oh.

                                DAVE
                    It was about twenty minutes ago 
                    when I first noticed. I was just 
                    about to call th -

                                STACY
                    What's your name?

                                DAVE
                    Uh, well...My name is Dave. Dave 
                    Attanasio. Anyway I think you 
                    should really -

                                STACY
                    My name is Stacy Cifaretto.

                                DAVE
                    Uh, hi. You know the police should -

                                STACY
                    You live around here?

                                DAVE
                    Yeah, the house across the street...
                    Stacy do you care that your car was 
                    stolen?

                                STACY
                    Cars are replaceable - Say, Dave 
                    you wouldn't happen to be single 
                    would you?

                                DAVE
                    Actually, I am. My girlfriend left 
                    me because she didn't like sharing 
                    an apartment with my mom.

     Stacy puts on a big fake smile.

                                STACY
                           (to herself)
                    Better then nothing.

     EXT. STREET - NIGHT

     Chris is walking and talking to himself.

                                CHRIS
                    So she's suicidal, makes sense.
                    That's the only way a beautiful
                    girl like that would like me.

     He walks further and stops

                                CHRIS
                    Oh shit, did I just make things
                    worse!? I just leave! What if
                    she kills herself! Oh god I'm a
                    fucking idiot.

     He begins to run towards the park but stops and gathers
     himself.

                                CHRIS
                    Chris just calm down. Your REALLY
                    over reacting right now. Just call
                    her later and say you ate some bad
                    Chinese or something.

     Chris begins to walk again.

                                CHRIS
                    I wonder what the others are doing.

     EXT. PHONE BOOTH - MINUTES LATER

     Chris is inside, on the phone. Pause.

                                REICTHER (O.S.)
                    Hello?

                                CHRIS
                    HOY! Reicther.

                                REICHTER (O.S.)
                    AH! C'mon Chris, you know I told you
                    to never do that. You know your
                    English accent freaks me out.

                                CHRIS
                          (laughing a bit)
                    Sorry. What are you up to?

                                REICHTER (O.S.)
                    Me and Casey are outside of the
                    school right now. We really cant
                    talk.

                                CHRIS
                    Oh sorry, see ya 

                                REICHTER (O.S.)
                    Ok, see ya Monday

     Before Reicther hangs up. You can softly hear Casey say 
     "Hey did you remember the bating ram?". Chris hangs up 
     the phone and dials another.

                                CHRIS
                    What's going on?

                                BROCK (O.S.)
                    Hey, did your "secret" date end
                    early?

                                CHRIS
                    Yeah.

     We can hear a car honk from the phone.

                                BROCK (O.S.)
                    Jesus! Watch the road Brian!

                                CHRIS
                    Where are you guys?

                    sister's car so now were joy riding.

                    I always am. I'm at the corner of
                    Cheery and Blue.

                                BROCK
                    Ok, see ya.

                                CHRIS

     Chris hangs up the phone.

     EXT. STREET CORNER - MINUTES LATER

     Chris stands at the corner, as the car pulls up carrying 
     Brian, Brock, Joel, and Will.

                                CHRIS
                    Where are we going?

                                WILL
                    Doesn't really matter.

     Chris squeezes in the back. The car pulls away.

                                                        FADE OUT.
