LOCKER ROOM - DAY Will, Casey, Brock, and Brian are getting dressed for gym class. Will and Casey are deep in conversation. Brock isn't paying much attention. WILL Did you see me yesterday? I was the MAN! Dodging balls left and right left and right. Man, I must have taken down five people in a minute. I was an animal out there, I tell ya. CASEY Wow, funny how EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE happened. You got hit like a...like a...like a guy who...gets hit. Hit with dodgeballs. An awkward pause. Casey has failed in his attempt at a classic comeback. CASEY Can we...forget I just said that? I'm a little off today. BRIAN You're a little off everyday. WILL Yeah, probably from loosing so badly. CASEY Again, it's amazing how you seem to think it's opposite day, because I was clearly the winner. BROCK I hate gym. WILL (to Casey) You're just in denial. You never lose at dodgeball and you just can't handle it. BROCK I loathe gym. CASEY (to Will) All that losing must have messed with your mind, because your team lost! Coach Chase said so. WILL Well of course he SAID so. That overweight, fat fuck loves you. Brock begins to pick up on the fact that nobody is listening. BROCK I hate guys NAMED Jim. CASEY (to Will) He doesn't love me, he just hates you. WILL (to Casey) No, he loves you. Loves you like you were his own. Why else would you have an A in here? You don't ever do anything. Hell, you don't even know how to fuckin' swim! BROCK Are you listening? Gym makes me not want to live anymore! CASEY (to Will) Ohh...so it all comes down to you're jealous of my grade. Now it all makes sense: The lies, the losing, more senseless lies... BROCK Is nobody listening to me? WILL Oh Casey, why do I even bother? BROCK I have mono! I licked all your clothes! Long, long pause. Brian chokes on some water. BROCK Wow, now you listen. SMASH CUT TO: OPENING CREDIT SEQUENCE: Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar" plays over the credits. AFTER CREDITS: FADE IN: INT. OUTSIDE OF CASEYS HOUSE - SHORTLY BEFORE SCHOOL Casey is walking on the sidewalk looking down at his feet. CASEY Stupid feet. I wish I had like wheels instead. Casey stops dead in his tracks. CASEY Man, that would be so AWESOME! Casey looks back at his feet. CASEY But I bet it would cost money, money that I don't have. Casey starts to walk again. After a while we hear a small engine approach. Casey looks behind him to see his father, JOHN JENNINGS, on a moped approaching him. Casey's father rides up next to his son, keeping pace. JOHN Hi son. CASEY (amazed) Hey dad... JOHN Notice anything different? CASEY Well, you are riding a scooter. JOHN This just isn't any scooter. CASEY It isn't? JOHN No. Beat. CASEY Are you going to tell me what kind of scooter it is? JOHN Casey. CASEY Dad. JOHN This is YOUR scooter. John stops the scooter, gets off and extends his arm to give Casey the keys. Casey is in awe. CASEY Are you shitting me? JOHN I can assure you I am not shitting you. Casey looks like a little boy on Christmas morning. He snatches the keys from his father and immediately takes the scooter off screen. We can hear the engine going and Casey letting out obnoxious shouts of joy. His father just stands there looking proud. JOHN My little boy is growing up... We hear the scooter run into some garbage cans off screen. JOHN (CONT'D) ...into a dumb ass. John shakes his head and walks off screen. CUT TO: INT. LUNCHROOM - BEFORE SCHOOL Will, Brian, Joel, Brock, and Chris are sitting around the table. Brock is mumbling to himself, writing in a notebook "I hate Gym" over and over again. Will is in the middle of explaining something to the guys. WILL Then out of the blue, she holds my hand. And not one of those accidentally "oops, wrong spot" kind but one of those "I mean it" hand holding things. JOEL Will, I'm impressed. CHRIS Yeah. This Emma girl sounds really good. WILL Her name is Ellen. JOEL So how long have you two been dating? WILL (confused) Dating? JOEL Yeah. Aren't you two dating? WILL No. Pause. Confusion is suddenly aroused. WILL Why do you all have that look in your face? JOEL Nothing, nothing. It's just seems... odd. WILL Odd? JOEL Yes. WILL How is it odd? JOEL Well, you hold hands how often? WILL Every night at rehearsals. JOEL How often do you have your arms wrapped around her waist? WILL Every night. JOEL How much time to you spend with her at rehearsals? WILL Pretty much every minute. Pause. JOEL Okay, you still don't see how weird this is not dating? WILL Hey just because, you hold her hand, wrap your arms around her, and spend pretty much every second with someone doesn't not mean you're dating said person. Hell, it doesn't even mean we like each other. Joel gives him a look. WILL Okay fine! I like her! You don't think I've been too obvious do you? The bell rings. Everyone, except Brock, gets up. BRIAN C'mon, Brock. It's time for gym. Brock rolls his eyes and gets up. CUT TO: INT. GYM - MINUTES LATER. Will, Brian, and Brock are standing near the middle of the court, talking. Suddenly Casey enters, whistling. BRIAN You seem chipper and happy This morning. (brief pause) So cut it out. You're bringing me down. WILL Good day, I suppose? CASEY Oh yes. This morning my dad got me a scooter. BRIAN (sarcastic) Well, if that isn't the perfect reason to celebrate. WILL A scooter? Why would you be excited about that for? CASEY Because I no longer have to bum rides or ride the fucking city bus to go see Kay. I can swing by her school now and pick her up. And I can do it in style. WILL (sarcastic) Oh yes. Because a woman loves it when you pick them up in a scooter. Especially in front of all their friends. As they go on, Brock seems distracted. He starts sniffing the air. BROCK (Sniffing the air) Wait...Something's...wrong. Something terribly wrong. CASEY What? WILL You're crazy, Brock. Beat. BRIAN I farted. Is that it? BROCK No, something much, much more... (Sniffs) Wait, it is your fart, never mind. They all hold their noses in disgust. BRIAN Yeah...sorry about that. Suddenly somebody walks into the Gym. It's somebody they've never seen before. He is young and very large. He has a threatening look on his face, almost like a drill-sergeant. He slowly stomps toward his students. The four of them gasp with fear. BROCK Ah I knew it wasn't the fart! I am psychic! CASEY I think the term is clairvoyant. SUBSTITUTE (threatening voice) ALL RIGHT MAGGOTS, LISTEN UP! BROCK (under breath) I hate gym. SUBSTITUTE MR. CHASE LONG GONE, SO THAT MEANS YOU'RE IN MY WORLD NOW! AND IT'S A WORLD OF PAIN! ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THAT, MAGGOTS?! Will and Casey are trembling in fear. WILL Casey, hold me. SUBSTITUTE (In a very different, higher voice) PSYCHE! Ha-ha, I got you guys so good! The whole class is in shock. SUBSTITUTE My name is Rob Edison, but you can call me Mr. E. Mr. Chase is visiting family for a couple weeks. Now, do you want to know what I have planned for today, or should Mr. E keep it a...mystery? Everyone except Brock laughs at the horrible pun. BRIAN Ha ha, they sound the same and it's funny! MR. E There's plenty more where that came from! BROCK Oh my god I really hate gym... CUT TO: INT. STUDY HALL - SAME Joel and CATHY MATTHEWS are sitting next to each other. Both are quietly working. Joel looks over at Cathy and notices she seems to be making a list of some sort. JOEL'S POV: He sees that the title of the list is "Music." He gasps. He seems very excited. JOEL Say, hon. CATHY Yeah? JOEL Whatcha' doing? CATHY Oh, I'm just trying to think of some music to play at this party. It's not very often that my third cousin graduates. JOEL What do you have so far? She hands him the list. As he reads the list, he seems to be disappointed by every selection. JOEL "Five for Fighting?" "Jay-Z?" (pause) Who the hell is "Annie?" CATHY I know, I know. I don't have the best music taste ever but that's the best I could come up with. JOEL Hey! You know what? You should let me help you pick out some music. CATHY Really? You'd do that? JOEL No problem. It would be my pleasure. CATHY Well...how much do you know about music? JOEL Lots. I know all about bands like "Men Without Hats", "Men With Hats", "Men who were kicked out of the band 'Men Without Hats' because they had hats." Pause. Cathy thinks about it. CATHY All right. JOEL Trust me, you won't regret this. CUT TO: INT. GYM - LITTLE LATER Will, Casey, Brian, and Brock are sitting on the floor, near the corner. They are all sweating buckets, and breathing heavily. Mr. E notices them and approaches. MR. E Hey, Gang. Wow, you guys looks exhausted. What have you been doing? WILL Coach Chase makes a list of ten things we have to do each week. CASEY They're impossible. WILL Right now we're attempting item number three. Run two laps, then jump rope for a minute. And we have to do it about sixteen laps. MR. E What lap are you guys on? ALL Five. MR. E You know, you guys look tired. Rest up a bit, cool down, get some water. WILL I don't know, Mr. E. We've really go to get that list finished. MR. E No problem. He opens up his grade book. MR. E Here I'll mark it down complete since you at least tried. And you know what, I'll mark the rest of the list complete. That way you'll have all of Friday free to mess around. He walks away. WILL He is, without a doubt the greatest human being that eve lived. BROCK (under breath) He's not that great. CUT TO: EXT. SCHOOL - AFTER SCHOOL School has just left out and there are dozens of students departing from the school. Near the entrance we see KAY JOHNSON and her female FRIEND standing, waiting. FRIEND Hey, Kay. Do you want a ride? KAY No, thanks. My boyfriend is coming to pick me up. Suddenly Casey pulls up on his scooter. It's loud as hell. He is wearing a helmet reading "Helmets Are for Pussies." He turns the bike off. CASEY (excited) Oh man. You should have seen it, hon. I was coming down the road when suddenly this bug came out of nowhere and - KAY (overlapping) What is this? CASEY It's a scooter honey. KAY You said you were going to pick me up in your new ride! CASEY And this is it. Pause. Kay seems greatly put off by this. CASEY Well, c'mon. I've got to take you home. KAY (pausing) Um, actually you know what? I just remembered that I have to stay after for science. CASEY But you - KAY I'm sorry, honey. (kisses him on the cheek) I'll call my dad to pick me up. She turns and walks back up to into the school. Casey seems a bit disappointed by this. The car behind him honks. DRIVER Hey, buddy! Let's move it! CASEY Sir, I'm trying to have an emotional moment. The driver rolls his eyes and Casey goes back to looking disappointed. CUT TO: INT. HALLWAY - SAME Mr. Parker emerges from a door with a cup of coffee in his hand. Parker turns a corner where Mr. E is standing waiting to surprise someone. MR. E Hiya! Mr. Parker is startled and spills coffee all over his shirt. PARKER (from the coffee) Ahh FUCK! Parker quickly takes off his dress shirt and throws it on the floor, leaving him in a white wife-beater. Mr. E is laughing hysterically. PARKER What the hell is wrong with you? MR. E (gradually stops laughing) Oh, I'm sorry man that was just too good! PARKER You don't just hide around corners waiting to surprise people! MR. E Why not? PARKER Because they might have a hot cup of coffee and end up spilling all over themselves. Beat. PARKER Or on YOUR face. MR. E Hey man, chill out. You should switch to decaf or something. Parker starts to pick up his soggy shirt, Mr. E is trying to stifle a laugh. PARKER What the hell is so funny? MR. E Don't you get it? Decaf! Parker gives him a look. PARKER What? MR. E Decaf! You know the coffee! Mr. E laughs. MR. E (CONT'D) I am the MASTER of puns! Parker gives him another look. PARKER Are you on crack? That wasn't a pun! MR. E Dude, just chill out. Parker gets right up into Mr. E's face. PARKER First of all Mr... Parker looks at Mr. E's name tag. PARKER Substitute Teacher. No one, and I mean NO ONE calls me dude. Second, I don't even know your NAME and I have a hatred for you that has no bounds. The only way that I can even begin to describe it is that it is my sincere hope that someday, by some strange twist of fate that you get deported! Parker walks off screen with his soggy shirt in hand and a scowl on his face. MR. E See ya later dude! Mr. E ducks and Parker's coffee mug flies over his head and shatters in a thousand pieces on the floor. CUT TO: INT. MUSIC STORE - AFTER SCHOOL Joel and Cathy are browsing around. Joel is furiously flipping through one section. Suddenly he finds something he likes. JOEL Here we go..."Pedro the Lion." Thee greatest batch of musicians that ever lived. Cathy sees an album. CATHY Oh, what about this? Joel seems utterly disgusted by this. JOEL No, no, no, no, no. CATHY What's wrong with this? JOEL Okay first off, how can you like a song called "hollerback girl?" I demand you name me one actual fucking person who knows what a "hollerback girl" is. CATHY I think it's a girl who doesn't talk smack. JOEL I stand corrected. Pause. They browse some more before stumbling upon something. JOEL Oh, oh! Hello there. Joel picks up an album and hands it to Cathy. CATHY (off album) What the hell is "Old Crow Medicine Show?" JOEL It's these guys whose music sounds like old timey bluegrass music. CATHY (put off) Ugh! JOEL What was that ugh for? CATHY I'm not that into old timey bluegrass music...well, not as much as you are. JOEL C'mon, Cathy. Trust me. She seems conflicted. CATHY Okay. But you've got to let me pick one for myself. JOEL All right, fine. She searches. CATHY This will due. She picks the album and hands it to him. JOEL (laughing) The Pussycat Dolls? CATHY Don't you even start with me. JOEL "Don't Cha?" How come you can't pick one CD with normal titles like "Sailing Away" or "In the Air Tonight?" CATHY You know what your are? JOEL What am I? CATHY You're a music snob. JOEL I am not! CATHY You are too. Ever since we got in here, you've got down all my suggestions. JOEL That's because their bad. Cathy looks hurt. JOEL Look, I'm sorry. It's just the way I was raised. (pause) Now, put the shitty CD away and we'll leave. CATHY You know what? I'm going to get the Gwen Stefani and Pussycat Dolls CDs ...and to get revenge I'm buying the best of Michael Bolton CD. Joel grabs his heart and pretends to be in pain. JOEL Cathy, you're breaking my heart! He continues to play around. She sighs and walks away. CUT TO: INT. LOCKER ROOM - DAY The next day. Will, Casey, Brian, and Brock are changing again. Mr. E walks in eating an ice cream cone. WILL Mr. E, are you sure that's healthy? I mean, you are a gym teacher and all. MR. E That's the point. I always hated gym, and that's why I love teaching it. All you have to do is stand there and tell kids what to do. I probably do the same amount of physical activity that an English teacher does, and I don't have to know hard stuff! WILL That's...utter genius! MR. E Yeah. In fact, you could say it's... udder genius! Nobody gets it. MR. E You know, udder? Like cow udder? Still nothing. MR. E Like milk? Still nothing. MR. E Like dairy? Still nothing. MR. E Like ice cream? I'm eating it. The whole locker room erupts in laughter. Mr. E laughs along with them. MR. E Plenty more where that came from! He walks out. The locker room is still laughing. Brock is in shock. BROCK I...I don't believe how much I hate that man. CASEY Ah, good stuff, good stuff. BRIAN I love that guy. BROCK Has the whole world cone crazy? Am I in some movie where you all get replaced by aliens that love horrible puns? WILL Oh guess what, you guys? CASEY What? BROCK Again, nobody listens to Brock. WILL (ignoring Brock) Ellen let me wrap my arms around her. And then we held hands! BRIAN Oh, Will. Good job, buddy. CASEY How nice. WILL Well, it wasn't anything big. I just - BROCK Can we please talk about Mr. E PLEASE?! WILL Okay Brock, let's talk. CASEY Hey, that rhymes! WILL Hey, it DOES! Maybe one day we'll be as funny as Mr. E! CASEY He has trained us well. BRIAN Best teacher I've ever had. BROCK (Sigh) You know what? Never mind. Just... never mind. CUT TO: INT. HALLWAY - ABOUT THE SAME Parker walks out of a door carrying a bundle of papers. He begins to walk down the hallway when we hear voices. We suddenly see TWO KIDS standing around a locker messing with something. KID 1 Shit dude someone's coming put it away! They slam a locker shut. PARKER I'm not deaf gentlemen. KID 2 (to Kid 1) Way to go spaz! Parker walks up to the kids. PARKER Well, what do we have here? Nuddie mags? KID 1 No. PARKER Cigarettes? KID 2 Notta. PARKER Dope? KID 1 Nope. PARKER Beer? KID 2 Warmer. PARKER Why am I wasting my time? Parker pushes past both of them and opens up the locker. There are at least six bottles of hard liquor in the locker. PARKER Holy crap! Were you guys going to throw a party in study hall? KID 1 (to Kid 2) Oh man! Why didn't we think of that?! PARKER Ok, what's your excuse? KID 2 Umm... KID 1 We're holding it for a teacher! KID 2 (to Kid 1) Dude! PARKER Good one. Which teacher? KID 1 We don't know his name. PARKER Yeah right. KID 2 No seriously it was some sub, he said if we held it for him he'd give us a bottle. Honest! Parker's face lights up. PARKER A sub you say? KID 1 He made us do it! PARKER What does he look like? KID 2 He had a whistle around his neck and was making puns. Parker, excited, runs off. KID 2 Oh, shit! KID 1 What? KID 2 That sub isn't the guy. KID 1 Whadda ya' mean? KID 2 It was that freaky History teacher that made us hold this shit for him. Remember, he was the guy who is missing his middle finger. KID 1 (realizing) Oh yeah! You're right! Kid 1 is puzzled. KID 1 I wonder why we couldn't remember that. Kid 2 grabs a bottle of hard liquor. KID 2 I guess this stuff really does scramble our brains. KID 1 Wait a minute! Parker didn't take our liquor! Both smiles and start to take the liquor from the locker. CUT TO: INT. GYM - NEXT DAY Mr. E is talking with some girls. He has some French fries. A fry falls onto his lap. MR. E Hey, it looks I've been assaulted. The girls all laugh. In the background we can see Casey, Will, and Brian are playing H-O-R-S-E. Brock is too busy thinking to play. WILL I got to hug Ellen again. I think something's gonna happen. BRIAN Okay, so is she your girlfriend yet? Cause I'm confused. WILL No, not yet. But this might, you know...break the ice a bit. BROCK OK, how about this...he made me drink alcohol! He told me that he'd fail me cause I'm not a real man. Would the school board believe that? BRIAN Jesus Brock, are you still on about that? BROCK OK, how about he didn't make me drink alcohol, maybe he just had me hide his alcohol in my locker! CASEY Brock, he's just a substitute. He's not gonna be here long. BROCK Yeah, but we don't know how long. I once had a substitute in English that was there for three months! WILL Wait, I remember you talking about that. Didn't your teacher die? BROCK That's beside the point. The point is: Mr. E is Satan and must be vanquished. BRIAN Wait...we're playing horse, right? CASEY Trying to. BRIAN Well...what letter are we on? I've made like ten shots in a row. And you haven't even shot yet. They pause for a moment. WILL How do you play horse, anyway? BRIAN I thought you guys knew. CASEY I think you need three balls for that. Another long pause. BRIAN I hate basketball. Mr. E comes jogging there with a big grin on his face. BROCK Oh God, here he comes with that stupid grin. How I hate him. How I hate the ground he walks on. MR. E (holding up a mitten) I'm a little peeved today, gang. The rest of the class gathers around. CASEY Why, Mr. E? MR. E Well, this mitten was supposed to keep my hands warm, so I tested it out in my freezer last night. And guess what? CLASS (All together) What? MR. E You really wanna know? CLASS (All together) YES! CASEY Don't keep is a mystery! The class erupts in laughter again. MR. E It didn't keep my hand warm! It was a BAD mitten. And by a stroke of luck, today we will be playing... CLASS (All together) BADMINTON! BROCK (In awe) Oh...my...god. MR. E Ha-ha, nice, you got that one! BROCK I have to go to the bathroom. Right now. CASEY Come on Brock, lighten up. BROCK No, I really feel sick. Like physically ill. WILL Well ask him. BROCK I don't wanna talk to that man. WILL Ask him, Brock. BROCK Fine...HEY MR. E, CAN I GO TO THE BATHROOM? MR. E I dunno, can you? BROCK (Weakly) Haha...I mean may I go to the bathroom? MR. E Yes you May. Or, should I say, yes you April, cause... BROCK (Disgusted) Yeah...cause it's April. MR. E Haha, exactly. BROCK Thank you, Mr. E. He walks away, muttering to himself. CUT TO: INT. HALLWAY - LATER THAT DAY Joel and Cathy are walking home, talking about the music selections. JOEL So, what did you end up picking out for your cousin's party? Cathy shows him a BILLY JOEL CD. CATHY Oh, some Billy Joel. I love his soothing... (checks back of CD) ...piano. JOEL You chose that because it was the first thing you saw, wasn't it? CATHY No...I, uh...love his songs. Which I don't want to name right now cause I know them too well. They exist the hall out into: CUT TO: EXT. SCHOOL - CONTINUOUS Joel and Cathy emerge from the school. Casey is sitting near the sidewalk, on his scooter looking very sad. JOEL (whispering to Cathy) Do you want to ask or should I? CATHY (to Joel) I'll take this one. (to Casey) What's the matter, Casey? CASEY (sighs) Oh, nothing. My girlfriend hates my scooter. JOEL You do look ridiculous on it. Cathy elbows Joel. CATHY I'm sure she doesn't hate it. CASEY She runs away every time I pick her up. Pause. CATHY I don't get it. CASEY Whadda' mean? CATHY Well, if she cares about you what's it matter if you pick her up in a scooter? That seems to be stupid thing to get be afraid of. Casey realizes she's right. CASEY ...Yeah. You're right. He starts up his scooter. CASEY Got to go. He rides off. CUT TO: INT. HALLWAY - DAY Mr. Parker is carefully looking over a stack of papers. He's stopped by a small group of people gathered by one of the rooms. Suddenly TWO POLICE officers emerge from the room with a handcuffed MR. HARRY McDANIEL, the history teacher. PARKER (confused) Harry? What the hell is going on? McDANIEL Apparently it's a (finger quotes) bad thing (end quotes) to sleep with a fourteen year old student. McDaniel scoffs. The officers take him away. STEVENS (O.S.) All right! All right! Everyone back to class! There are a few groans but the crowd eventually disburses. PRINCIPAL BOB STEVENS comes in from off-screen. STEVENS He's been here for twenty four years and he throws his whole career down the tubes just for some freshmen girl. Never would have caught him if weren't for your little tip, John. PARKER Tip? But that was for Rob Edison. STEVENS Who? PARKER Mr. E, Bob! STEVENS What, him? Are you kidding? He's one of the best substitutes we've ever had. In fact when he finishes his stint in gym he's going to take over Harry's History class for the rest of the semester. PARKER (stunned) Rest of the semester? Stevens pats him on the shoulder and departs. (BEGIN MUSIC MONTAGE: Foo Fighters - "Learn to Fly") Parker lets out a big sigh and slumps his shoulders. CUT TO: EXT. DIFFERENT SCHOOL - LATER Kay is standing around waiting. Casey pulls up again in his scooter. As soon as she sees this, she heads toward the school. CASEY Kay, stop! Kay stops and turns toward Casey. CASEY Do you love me? KAY (confused) What? CASEY Do you love me? KAY Of course. CASEY Then I must ask you: what's it matter? What's it matter if I pick you up in a scooter? Or a car? Hell, it should matter even if I picked you up in the damn Millennium Falcon. KAY Although it would be pretty cool. CASEY I mean if we love each other...who gives a shit what anyone else thinks? Pause. She smiles. KAY Would I get a helmet? Casey reaches in and pulls out a helmet with her name on it. A big smiles comes across her face, and she slowly approaches Casey. FADE TO: INT. JOEL'S HOUSE - ROOM - SAME Joel and Cathy are sitting on the floor. Both are wearing headphones, listening to music. Cathy seems to enjoying herself while Joel seems frustrated. JOEL First, Hollerback girls now bananas? This is fucking stupid. He starts to take the headphones off. CATHY Keep them on. He sighs and keeps them on. FADE TO: INT. AUDITORIUM - SAME Will is sitting down next to ELLEN CONNER. Holding her hand. They two are laughing at something off camera. When she's not looking, Will looks at her and then down at her hand which he is holding. WILL This is really obvious ELLEN What? WILL Nothing. FADE TO: INT. SCHOOL - HALLWAY - SAME Mr. E walks into Mr. McDaniel's room carrying a box of his stuff. Down at the end of the hallway, Parker watches in disbelief. FADE TO: EXT. ROAD - SUNSET Casey and Kay are barreling down the highway on the scooter. Both are smiling, while Kay lovingly rests her head on Casey's shoulders. KAY Oh Casey, I love you. CASEY (misunderstanding) My pants aren't blue. She just shakes her head as they continue ride off into the sunset. (SONG FADES AWAY) FADE OUT. END OF EPISODE
