1. EXT. SHERMER HIGH SCHOOL – DAY

During Brian’s monologue, we see various views of things
inside the school including Bender’s locker.

BRIAN (VO)
Saturday…March 24, 1984. Shermer
High School, Shermer, Illinois.
60062. Dear Mr. Vernon…we accept
the fact that we had to sacrifice a
whole Saturday in detention for
whatever it was that we did wrong,
what we did was wrong. But we think
you’re crazy to make us write this
essay telling you who we think we
are, what do you care? You see us
as you want to see us…in the
simplest terms and the most
convenient definitions. You see us
as a brain, an athelete, a basket
case, a princess and a criminal.
Correct? That’s the way we saw each
other at seven o’clock this morning.
We were brainwashed…
CUT TO:

2. INT. CLAIRE’S CAR – DAY

We see CLAIRE and her FATHER sitting in their car in the
parking lot.

Claire is the prom queen and is clearly a snob.

CLAIRE
I can’t believe you can’t get me
out of this…I mean it’s so absurd
I have to be here on a Saturday!
It’s not like I’m a defective or
anything…

CLAIRE’S FATHER
I’ll make it up to you…Honey,
ditching class to go shopping
doesn’t make you a defective. Have
a good day.

Claire rolls her eyes and gets out of the car and walks
up the school front steps
CUT TO:

3. INT. BRIAN’S CAR – DAY

We are in BRIAN’s car. His MOTHER is there and so is
his little SISTER. He is sort of a nerd.

BRIAN’S MOTHER
Is this the first time or the last
time we do this?

BRIAN
(upset)
Last…

BRIAN’S MOTHER
Well get in there and use the time
to your advantage…

BRIAN
Mom, we’re not supposed to study; we
just have to sit there and do
nothing.

BRIAN’S MOTHER
Well mister you figure out a way to
study.

BRIAN’S LITTLE SISTER
(annoyingly)
Yeah!

BRIAN’S MOTHER
Well go!

Brian gets out of the car and walks towards the school.
CUT TO:

4. INT. ANDREW’S CAR – DAY

We see ANDREW and his FATHER. Andrew is clearly a jock;
he’s wearing a letterman’s jacket with lots of patches on it.

ANDREW’S FATHER
Hey, I screwed around…guys screw
around, there’s nothing wrong with
that. Except you got caught, Sport.

ANDREW
Yeah, Mom already reemed me, alright?

ANDREW’S FATHER
(angry)
You wanna miss a match? You wanna
blow your ride? Now no school’s
gonna give a scholarship to a
discipline case.

Andrew gets out of the car and walks into the school.
CUT TO:

5. EXT. SHERMER PARKING LOT – DAY

We see JOHN BENDER walking towards us. He is wearing
sunglasses. A car is coming towards him but he doesn’t
stop walking.

The car slams on its breaks directly in front of him.

Bender gets out of the frame. Out of the car steps
ALLISON. She is dressed all in black. She steps
forward to look in the car’s front window and the car
drives away.
CUT TO:

6. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

There are six tables in two rows of three.
Claire is sitting at the front table. Brian comes in
and sits at the table behind her.

Andrew comes in and points at the chair next to Claire
at the front table. She shrugs and he sits there.

In walks Bender, he touches everything on the checkout
desk and takes a few things in the process.

He walks over to where Brian is sitting and points to
the table on the opposite side of the Library. Brian
reluctantly gets up and moves.

Bender sits at the table where Brian was and puts his
feet up.

Allison walks in. She walks all the way around the
library and sits in the back corner table, just behind
Brian.

Andrew and Claire look at each other and snicker.

Brian looks at her in confusion and then turns away.

Enter RICHARD VERNON, a teacher. He holds a stack
of papers in his left hand. He addresses the group with
such disrespect it makes you wonder how he ever got the
job.

VERNON
Well…well. Here we are! I want
to congradulate you for being on
time…

Claire raises her hand.

CLAIRE
Excuse me, sir? I think there’s
been a mistake. I know it’s
detention, but…um…I don’t think
I belong in here…

Vernon doesn’t care. He just continues to talk.

VERNON
It is now seven-oh-six. You have
exactly eight hours and fifty-four
minutes to think about why you’re
here. To ponder the error of your
ways…

Bender spits into the air and catches the spit in his
mouth again.

Claire looks like she is going to gag.

VERNON
…and you may not talk. You will
not move from these seats.

He glances up at Bender and points at him.

VERNON
…and you…

Vernon pulls the chair out from under Bender’s feet.

VERNON
…will not sleep. Alright people,
we’re gonna try something a little
different today. We are going to
write an essay–of no less than a
thousand words–describing to me
who you think you are.

BENDER
Is this a test?

Vernon passes out paper and pencils and takes no notice
of Bender.

VERNON
And when I say essay…I mean essay.
I do not mean a single word repeated
a thousand times. Is that clear Mr.
Bender?

Bender looks up.

BENDER
Crystal…

VERNON
Good. Maybe you’ll learn a little
something about yourself. Maybe
you’ll even–decide whether or not
you care to return.

Brian raises his hand and then stands.

BRIAN
You know, I can answer that right
now sir…That’d be “No”, no for me.
‘cause…

VERNON
Sit down Johnson…

BRIAN
Thank you sir…

He sits.

VERNON
My office…

Vernon points.

VERNON
…is right across that hall. Any
monkey business is ill-advised…

He looks around at them.

VERNON
…any questions?

BENDER
Yeah…I got a question.

Vernon looks at him suspiciously.

BENDER
Does Barry Manilow know you raid his
wardrobe?

VERNON
I’ll give you the answer to that
question, Mr. Bender, next Saturday.
Don’t mess with the bull young man,
you’ll get the horns.

Vernon leaves.

BENDER
That man…is a brownie hound…

Everyone tries to get comfortable and we hear a loud
snapping sound. Brian turns and looks and it is
Allison, biting her nails.

Bender’s eyes widen as he turns to look. Everyone is
looking now. Allison notices them looking at her.

BENDER
You keep eating your hand and you’re
not gonna be hungry for lunch…

Allison spits part of her nail at Bender.

BENDER
I’ve seen you before, you know…

We see Vernon look out from his office.

We see Brian playing with his pen.

BRIAN
(quietly to himself)
Who do I think I am? Who are you?
Who are you?

He attaches the pen to his bottom lip and puts the top
under his upper lip.

BRIAN
I am a walrus…

Bender looks at him in utter confusion. Brian notices
this, laughs and takes the pen out of his mouth–
embarrassed.

Bender and Brian begin to take their jackets off at the
same time. They both notice this. Brian stops removing
his jacket.

Bender takes his all the way off. Brian rubs his hands
together and pretends to be cold. He pulls his jacket
back on. He turns and looks at Bender who is still
staring at him.

BRIAN
It’s the shits, huh?

Bender glares at him and Brian utters an uncomfortable
laugh.

Bender turns away and crumples up his essay paper. He
throws it at Claire. It misses and goes over Claire’s
head.

Andrew and Claire acknowlege it but continue to ignore
Bender.

Bender starts loudly “singing” the musical part of a
song. “Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah…nah, nah, nah…”

CLAIRE
(to herself)
I can’t believe this is really
happening to me…

Bender stops “singing” abruptly.

BENDER
Oh, shit! What’re we s’posed to do
if we hafta take a piss?

CLAIRE
(disgusted)
Please…

BENDER
If you gotta go…

We hear Bender unzip his fly.

BENDER
You gotta go!

Everyone is now looking at Bender.

CLAIRE
(disgusted)
Oh my God!

ANDREW
Hey, yer not urinating in here man!

BENDER
Don’t talk! Don’t talk! It makes
it crawl back up!

ANDREW
You whip it out and you’re dead
before the first drop hits the
floor!

Bender gasps mockingly.

BENDER
You’re pretty sexy when you get
angry…grrr!

He turns to Brian.

BENDER
Hey, homeboy…

Brian points at himself with his pen.

BENDER
…why don’t you go close that door.
We’ll get the prom queen–
impregnated!

Claire turns and glares at him.

ANDREW
Hey!

Bender ignores him.

ANDREW
Hey!
BENDER
What?

ANDREW
If I lose my temper, you’re totalled
man!

BENDER
Totally?

ANDREW
Totally!

CLAIRE
(to Bender)
Why don’t you just shut up! Nobody
here is interested!

ANDREW
Really!
(to Claire about Bender)
Buttface!

BENDER
Well hey Sporto! What’d you do to
get in here? Forget to wash your
jock?

BRIAN
(nervous)
Uh, excuse me, fellas? I think we
should just write our papers…

ANDREW
(to Bender)
Look, just because you live in here
doesn’t give you the right to be a
pain in the ass…so knock it off!

Bender mockingly registers pain in his face.

BENDER
It’s a free country…

CLAIRE
(to Andrew)
He’s just doing it to get a rise out
of you! Just ignore him…

BENDER
(to Claire)
Sweets…you couldn’t ignore me if
you tried!

Claire rolls her eyes.

BENDER
So…so!
(to Andrew and Claire)
Are you guys like boyfriend/girl-
friend?
(a beat)
Steady dates?
(another beat)
Lo–vers?
(another beat)
Come on Sporto, level with me. Do
you slip her the hot…beef…
injection?

Claire and Andrew turn to face Bender, both furious.

CLAIRE
(screams)
Go to hell!

ANDREW
(screams)
Enough!

CUT TO:

7. INT. VERNON’S OFFICE – DAY

We see Vernon in his office.

VERNON
(yells)
Hey! What’s going on in there?
(to himself)
Smug little pricks!
CUT TO:

8. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

They all look at each other. Andrew turns away from
Bender.

ANDREW
(to himself)
Scumbag!

Bender stands up and walks over to the railing. He sits
on it.

BENDER
What do you say we close that door.
We can’t have any kind of party
with Vernon checking us out every
few seconds.

BRIAN
Well, you know the door’s s’posed to
stay open…

BENDER
So what?

ANDREW
So why don’t you just shut up!
There’s four other people in here
you know…

BENDER
God, you can count. See! I knew
you had to be smart to be a…a
wrestler.

ANDREW
Who the hell are you to judge
anybody anyway?

CLAIRE
Really…

ANDREW
You know, Bender…you don’t even
count. I mean if you disappeared
forever it wouldn’t make any
difference. You may as well not
even exist at this school.

Bender probably is upset at this and he pauses a moment
before speaking. He doesn’t let his emotions out,
however.

BENDER
Well…I’ll just run right out and
join the wrestling team.

Andrew and Claire look at each other and laugh at
Bender.

BENDER
(to Claire)
Maybe the prep club too! Student
council…

ANDREW
No, they wouldn’t take you.

BENDER
I’m hurt.

CLAIRE
You know why guys like you knock
everything…

BENDER
(to himself)
Oh, this should be stunning…

CLAIRE
It’s ‘cause you’re afraid.

BENDER
(with mock enthusiasm)
Oh, God! You ritchies are so smart,
that’s exactly why I’m not heavy in
activities!

CLAIRE
You’re a big coward!

Brian feels left out.

BRIAN
(to no one imparticular)
I’m in the math club…

CLAIRE
See you’re afraid that they won’t
take you. You don’t belong so you
just have to dump all over it…

BENDER
Well…it wouldn’t have anything to
do with you activities people being
assholes…now would it?

CLAIRE
Well you wouldn’t know…You don’t
even know any of us.

BENDER
Well, I don’t know any lepers
either, but I’m not gonna run out
and join one of their fucking clubs.

ANDREW
Hey let’s watch the mouth, huh?

Brian again feels he needs to contribute.

BRIAN
I’m in the physics club too…

BENDER
(to Claire)
S’cuse me a sec…
(to Brian)
What are you babbling about?

BRIAN
Well, what I said was…I’m in the
math club, the Latin club and the
physics club…physics club.

Bender nods and turns to Claire.

BENDER
Hey…Cherry…do you belong to the
physics club?

CLAIRE
That’s an academic club…

BENDER
So?

CLAIRE
So…academic clubs aren’t the same
as other kinds of clubs.

BENDER
Oh, but to dorks like him…

Bender points at Brian.

BENDER
…they are.
(to Brian)
What do you guys do in your club?

BRIAN
In physics, um, we ah, we talk about
physics…about properties of physics.

BENDER
So it’s sorta social…demented and
sad, but social. Right?

BRIAN
Yeah, well, I guess you could
consider it a social situation. I
mean there are other children in my
club and uh, at the end of the year
we have, um, you know, a big
banquet, at the, uh, at the Hilton.

BENDER
You load up, you party…

BRIAN
Well, no, we get dressed up…I
mean, but, we don’t…we don’t get
high.

CLAIRE
(to Bender)
Only burners like you get high…

BRIAN
And, uh, I didn’t have any shoes.
So I had to borrow my dad’s. It
was kinda weird ‘cause my mom doesn’t
like me to wear other people’s
shoes. And, uh, my cousin Kent…my
cousin Kendall from, uh, Indiana…
He got high once and you know, he
started eating like really weird
foods. And uh, and then he just
felt like he didn’t belong anywhere.
You know, kinda like, you know
“Twilight Zone” kinda.

CLAIRE
(laughs)
(to Bender)
Sounds like you…

ANDREW
Look, you guys keep up your talking
and Vernon’s gonna come right in
here…I got a meet this Saturday
and I’m not gonna miss it on account
of you boneheads…

BENDER
(to Andrew)
Oh and wouldn’t that be a bite…

Bender lets out a moan of fake agony.

BENDER
Missing a whole wrestling meet!

ANDREW
Well you wouldn’t know anything
about it, faggot! You never competed
in your whole life!

BENDER
(with mock hurt)
Oh, I know…I feel all empty inside
because of it. I have such a deep
admiration for guys that roll around
on the floor with other guys!

ANDREW
Ahhh…you’d never miss it. You
don’t have any goals.

BENDER
Oh, but I do!

ANDREW
Yeah?

BENDER
I wanna be just–like–you! I
figure all I need’s a labotamy and
some tights!

Brian becomes interested.

BRIAN
You wear tights?

ANDREW
(to Brian)
No I don’t wear tights, I wear the
required uniform…

BRIAN
Tights…

ANDREW
(defensive)
Shut up!

They hear Vernon moving around out in the hall so Bender
quickly comes and sits in the chair between Claire and
Andrew. He folds his hands on the table.
Vernon goes back into his office. Bender laughs and
gets up. He starts walking towards the double doors
that separate the library from the hallway.

BRIAN
You know there’s not s’posed to be
any monkey business!

Bender turns and points at Brian.

BENDER
(in a stern voice)
Young man…have you finished your
paper?

Bender turns back away and goes to the door. He looks
around cautiously and removes a screw from the door.

CLAIRE
What are you gonna do?

ANDREW
Drop dead, I hope!
CUT TO:

9. INT. HALLWAY – DAY

We see Vernon getting a drink at the fountain. He stands
up and checks the way he looks in a mirror. He does a
muscular pose and utters some manly jibberish “Cobadonga!”
CUT TO:

10. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Brian looks up. Bender is messing with the door to the
library.

BRIAN
Bender, that’s, that’s school
property there…you know, it doesn’t
belong to us. It’s something not to
be toyed with.

The door slams shut. Bender runs back to his seat.

ANDREW
That’s very funny, come on, fix it!

BRIAN
You should really fix that!

BENDER
Am I a genius?

ANDREW
No, you’re an asshole!

BENDER
What a funny guy!

ANDREW
Fix the door Bender!

BENDER
Everyone just shhh!
CUT TO:

11. INT. HALLWAY – DAY

We see Vernon walking back to his office. He stops and
listens to them through the closed door.

BENDER (OS)
I’ve been here before, I know what
I’m doing!

ANDREW (OS)
No! Fix the door, get up there and
fix it!

BENDER (OS)
(screams)
Shut up!
CUT TO:

12. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

We see Brian as we hear Vernon in the hall.

VERNON (OS)
God damnit!

He opens the door and storms in.

VERNON
Why is that door closed?

For a few seconds no one says anything, they just stare
at Vernon.

VERNON
Why is that door closed?

BENDER
How’re we s’posed to know? We’re
not s’posed to move, right?

Vernon turns to Claire.

VERNON
Why?

CLAIRE
We were just sitting here, like we
were s’posed to…

Vernon looks around and looks at Bender.

VERNON
Who closed that door?

BENDER
I think a screw fell out of it…

ANDREW
It just closed, sir…

Vernon looks at Allison in the back.

VERNON
Who?

Allison lets out a squeak and slams her face onto the
table, hiding in her jacket hood.

BENDER
She doesn’t talk, sir…

VERNON
(to Bender)
Give me that screw…

BENDER
I don’t have it…

VERNON
You want me to yank you outta that
seat and shake it out of you?

BENDER
I don’t have it…screws fall out
all of the time, the world’s an
imperfect place…

VERNON
Give it to me, Bender…

CLAIRE
Excuse me, sir, why would anybody
want to steal a screw?

VERNON
(to Claire)
Watch it, young lady…

Vernon goes over to the door. He tries to hold it open
by putting a folding chair in front of it.

BENDER
The door’s way too heavy, sir.

The door slams shut despite the chair.

VERNON (OS)
God damnit!

They laugh.

Vernon opens the door again. He comes back in.

VERNON
(pointing)
Andrew Clark…get up here. Come on,
front and center, let’s go.

Andrew gets up and walks over to Vernon.

BENDER
Hey, how come Andrew gets to get up?
If he gets up, we’ll all get up,
it’ll be anarchy!

Vernon and Andrew are now attempting to move the steel
magazine rack in front of the door.

VERNON
Okay, now, watch the magazines!

BENDER
It’s out of my hands…

They get it into the doorway and it blocks the entire
door.

BENDER
That’s very clever sir, but what if
there’s a fire? I think violating
fire codes and endangering the
lives of children would be unwise
at this juncture in your career, sir.

Vernon thinks about it. He turns to Andrew.

VERNON
Alright, what are you doing with
this? Get this outta here for God’s
sake! What’s the matter with you?
Come on!

BRIAN
You know the school comes equipped
with fire exits at either end of the
library.

Brian points at them and Bender glares at him.

BENDER
(to Brian)
Show Dick some respect!

Andrew and Vernon come back into the main section of
the library.

VERNON
(to Andrew)
Let’s go…go! Get back into your
seat.

Andrew sits.

VERNON
(to Andrew)
I expected a little more from a
varsity letterman!
(to Bender)
You’re not fooling anybody, Bender!
The next screw that falls out is
gonna be you!

Vernon turns to leave.

BENDER
(under his breath)
Eat my shorts…

Vernon spins in his tracks and faces Bender again.

VERNON
What was that?

BENDER
(loudly)
Eat my shorts!

VERNON
You just bought yourself another
Saturday, mister!

BENDER
Oh, Christ…

VERNON
You just bought one more right
there!

BENDER
Well, I’m free the Saturday after
that…beyond that, I’m gonna have
to check my calendar!

VERNON
Good! ‘Cause it’s gonna be filled,
we’ll keep goin’! You want another
one? Say the word, just say the
word! Instead of going to prison,
you’ll come here! Are you through.

BENDER
No!

VERNON
I’m doing society a favor!

BENDER
So?

VERNON
That’s another one, right now! I’ve
got you for the rest of your natural
born life if you don’t watch your
step! You want another one?

BENDER
Yes!

VERNON
You got it! You got another one,
right there! That’s another one
pal!

CLAIRE
(worried)
Cut it out!

Claire mouths the word “Stop” to Bender.

VERNON
You through?

BENDER
Not even close, bud!

VERNON
Good! You got one more, right
there!

BENDER
Do you really think I give a shit?

VERNON
Another…

Bender glares at him.

VERNON
You through?

BENDER
How many is that?

BRIAN
That’s seven including the one when
we first came in and you asked Mr.
Vernon here whether Barry Manilow
knew that he raided his closet.

VERNON
(to Bender)
Now it’s eight…
(to Brian)
You stay out of it!

BRIAN
Excuse me, sir, it’s seven!

VERNON
Shut up, Peewee!
(to Bender)
You’re mine Bender…for two months
I gotcha! I gotcha!

BENDER
What can I say? I’m thrilled!

VERNON
Oh, I’m sure that’s exactly what you
want these people to believe. You
know something, Bender? You ought
to spend a little more time trying
to do something with yourself and a
little less time trying to impress
people. You might be better off.
(to everyone)
Alright, that’s it! I’m going to
be right outside those doors. The
next time I hafta come in here…I’m
cracking skulls! (Bender mouths “I’m
cracking skulls”)

Vernon leaves and closes the door. A musical riff
builds to a climax as Bender screams.

BENDER
(screams)
Fuck you!

We see the clock, it reads a quarter to eight.

We see Bender, lighting his shoe on fire and lighting a
cigarette with his shoe.

We see Claire thinking.

We see Brian playing with his balls.

We see Andrew playing with his sweatshirt.

We see Allison pulling a string around her finger and
making it turn purple.

We see Bender put the flames on his shoe out. He then
plays air guitar.

We see Allison drawing.

We see Andrew playing paper football. He cheers
silently.

Allison shakes dandruff from her hair onto her picture.

We see everyone fall asleep.
CUT TO:

13. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Later.

Vernon is standing there staring at the sleeping kids.

VERNON
Wake up! Who has to go to the
lavatory?

Everyone raises their hands.
CUT TO:

14. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Later.

We see the clock, it now says 10:22.

We see Andrew stretching. We see Bender tearing pages
out of a book. He is tossing them around.

ANDREW
That’s real intelligent.

BENDER
You’re right…it’s wrong to
destroy literature…

He continues to tear pages out.

BENDER
It’s such fun to read…and, Molet
really pumps my nads!

CLAIRE
(pronouncing it correctly)
Mol-yare.

BRIAN
I love his work.

Bender tosses the rest of the pages at Brian. He picks
up the card catalogue drawer and begins to take cards
out.

BENDER
Big deal…nothing to do when you’re
locked in a vacancy..

ANDREW
Speak for yourself…

BENDER
Do you think I’d speak for you? I
don’t even know your language!

Andrew turns to Claire.

ANDREW
Hey, you grounded tonight?

Claire shrugs.

CLAIRE
I don’t know, my mom said I was but
by dad told me to just blow her off.

ANDREW
Big party at Stubbies, parents are
in Europe. Should be pretty wild…

CLAIRE
Yeah?

ANDREW
Yeah, can you go?

CLAIRE
I doubt it…

ANDREW
How come?

CLAIRE
Well ‘cause if I do what my mother
tells me not to do, it’s because
because my father says it’s okay.
There’s like this whole big monster
deal, it’s endless and it’s a total
drag. It’s like any minute…
divorce…

BENDER
Who do you like better?

CLAIRE
What?

BENDER
You like your old man better than
your mom?

CLAIRE
They’re both strict.

BENDER
No, I mean, if you had to choose
between them.

CLAIRE
I dunno, I’d probably go live with
my brother. I mean, I don’t think
either one of them gives a shit
about me…it’s like they use me
just to get back at each other.

Suddenly, from the back of the room. Allison speaks.

ALLISON
(loudly)
Ha!!!

Everyone looks at her shocked. Allison blows her hair
out of her eyes and grins.

CLAIRE
Shut up!

ANDREW
You’re just feeling sorry for
yourself…

CLAIRE
Yeah, well if I didn’t nobody else
would.

ANDREW
Aw…you’re breaking my heart…

BENDER
Sporto…

ANDREW
What?

Bender jumps down and goes next to Andrew.

BENDER
You get along with your parents?

ANDREW
Well if I say yes, I’m an idiot,
right?

BENDER
You’re an idiot anyway…But if you
say you get along with your parents
well you’re a liar too!

Bender turns and walks away from him. Andrew follows
and pushes Bender.

ANDREW
You know something, man…If we
weren’t in school right now, I’d
waste you!

Bender points his middle finger at the floor.

BENDER
Can you hear this? Want me to turn
it up?

Bender flips his hand around so he is now giving Andrew
the bird.

Brian comes over and puts a hand on each of the guy’s
shoulders.

BRIAN
Hey fellas, I mean…

Andrew pushes away from Brian.

BRIAN
…I don’t like my parents either,
I don’t…I don’t get along with
them…their idea of parental
compassion is just, you know, wacko!

Bender turns to Brian.

BENDER
Dork…

BRIAN
Yeah?

BENDER
You are a parent’s wet dream, okay?

Bender starts to walk away.

BRIAN
Well that’s a problem!

BENDER
Look, I can see you getting all
bunged up for them making you wear
these kinda clothes. But face it,
you’re a Neo-Maxi-Zoom-Dweebie!
What would you be doing if you
weren’t out making yourself a better
citizen?

ANDREW
Why do you have to insult everybody?

BENDER
I’m being honest, asshole! I would
expect you…to know the difference!

ANDREW
Yeah well, he’s gotta name!

BENDER
Yeah?

ANDREW
Yeah,
(to Brian)
What’s your name?

BRIAN
Brian…

ANDREW
See…

BENDER
(to Brian)
My condolences…

Bender walks away.

CLAIRE
(to Bender)
What’s your name?

BENDER
What’s yours?

CLAIRE
Claire…

BENDER
Ka-Laire?

CLAIRE
Claire…it’s a family name!

BENDER
Nooo…It’s a fat girl’s name!

CLAIRE
Well thank you…

BENDER
You’re welcome…

CLAIRE
I’m not fat!

BENDER
Well not at present but I could see
you really pushing maximum density!
You see, I’m not sure if you know
this…but there are two kinds of
fat people. There’s fat people that
were born to be fat, and then there’s
fat people that were once thin but
they became fat…so when you look
at them you can sorta see that thin
person inside! You see, you’re
gonna get married, you’re gonna
squeeze out a few puppies and then,
uh…

He mimes becoming fat, making noises.

Claire gives him the finger.

BENDER
Oh…obscene finger gestures from
such a pristine girl!

CLAIRE
(resentfully)
I’m not that pristine!

Bender bends down closer to Claire.

BENDER
Are you a virgin?
(a beat)
I’ll bet you a million dollars that
you are! Let’s end the suspense!
Is it gonna be…
(another beat)
…a white weddin?

CLAIRE
Why don’t you just shut up?

BENDER
Have you ever kissed a boy on the
mouth?
(a beat)
Have you ever been felt up? Over
the bra, under the blouse, shoes
off…hoping to God your parents
don’t walk in?

Claire is getting upset.

CLAIRE
Do you want me to puke?

BENDER
Over the panties, no bra, blouse
unbuttoned, Calvin’s in a ball on
the front seat past eleven on a
school night?

ANDREW
Leave her alone!

Bender slowly stands and faces Andrew.

ANDREW
I said leave her alone!

BENDER
You gonna make me?

ANDREW
Yeah…

Bender walks over to where Andrew is standing.

BENDER
You and how many of your friends?

ANDREW
Just me, just you and me. Two hits.
Me hitting you, you hitting the
floor! Anytime you’re ready, pal!

Bender goes to hit him but Andrew gets Bender down on
the ground with a wrestling move.

BENDER
I don’t wanna get into to this with
you man…

Andrew gets up.

ANDREW
Why not?

Bender gets up.

BENDER
‘Cause I’d kill you…It’s real simple.
I’d kill you and your fucking parents
would sue me and it would be a big
mess and I don’t care enough about
you to bother.

ANDREW
Chicken shit…

Andrew turns and walks away. Bender takes out a
switchblade and opens it.

He stabs the switchblade into a chair.

ANDREW
Let’s end this right now. You don’t
talk to her…you don’t look at her
and you don’t even think about her!
You understand me?

BENDER
I’m trying to help her!.

We see the janitor, CARL come into the room.

CARL
Brian, how you doing?

BENDER
Your dad works here?

Brian is embarrassed.

BENDER
Uh, Carl?

CARL
What?

BENDER
Can I ask you a question?

CARL
Sure…

BENDER
How does one become a janitor?

CARL
You wanna be a janitor?

BENDER
No I just wanna know how one becomes
a janitor because Andrew here, is
very interested in persuing a
career in the custodial arts…

CARL
Oh, really? You guys think I’m
just some untouchable peasant? Peon?
Huh? Maybe so, but following
a broom around after shitheads like
you for the past eight years I’ve
learned a couple of things…I look
through your letters, I look through
your lockers…I listen to your
conversations, you don’t know that
but I do…I am the eyes and ears of
this institution my friends. By the
way, that clock’s twenty minutes
fast!

Everyone groans. Bender smiles.

ANDREW
Shit!
CUT TO:

15. INT. VERNON’S OFFICE – DAY

The clock says 11:30. Vernon gets up and leaves.
CUT TO:

16. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Bender starts to whistle a marching tune and everybody
joins in.

Vernon enters. Bender begins to whistle Beethoven’s
5th.

VERNON
Allright girls, that’s thirty
minutes for lunch…

ANDREW
Here?

VERNON
Here…

ANDREW
Well I think the cafeteria would be
a more suitable place for us to eat
lunch in, sir!

VERNON
Well, I don’t care what you think,
Andrew!

BENDER
Uh, Dick? Excuse me, Rich…will
milk be made available to us?

ANDREW
We’re extremely thirsty sir…

CLAIRE
I have a very low tolerance for
dehydration.

ANDREW
I’ve seen her dehydrate sir, it’s
pretty gross.

Bender stands.

BENDER
Relax, I’ll get it!

VERNON
Ah, ah, ah grab some wood there, bub!

Bender grins.

VERNON
What do you think, I was born
yesterday? You think I’m gonna
have you roaming these halls?

He points at Andrew.

VERNON
You!

He points at Allison.

VERNON
And you! Hey! What’s her name?
Wake her! Wake her up!
(to Allison)
Come on, on your feet missy! Let’s
go! This is no rest home!

Allison gets up.

VERNON
There’s a soft drink machine in the
teacher’s lounge. Lets go!

CUT TO:

16. INT. HALLWAY – DAY

Andrew and Allison are walking in the hall.

ANDREW
So, what’s your poison?

Allison doesn’t answer.

ANDREW
What do you drink?

Allison still doesn’t answer.

ANDREW
Okay…forget I asked…

Allison waits for two beats and then speaks.

ALLISON
Vodka…

ANDREW
Vodka? When do you drink vodka?

ALLISON
Whenever…

ANDREW
A lot?

Allison smiles.

ALLISON
Tons…

ANDREW
Is that why you’re here today?

Allison doesn’t answer.

ANDREW
Why are you here?

Allison snaps back.

ALLISON
Why are you here?

They stop walking and Andrew leans against the wall.

ANDREW
Um, I’m here today…because uh,
because my coach and my father don’t
want me to blow my ride. See I get
treated differently because uh,
Coach thinks I’m a winner. So does
my old man. I’m not a winner
because I wanna be one… I’m a
winner because I got strength and
speed. Kinda like a race horse.
That’s about how involved I am in
what’s happening to me.

ALLISON
Yeah? That’s very interesting.
Now why don’t you tell me why you’re
really in here.

ANDREW
Forget it!
CUT TO:

17. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Claire and Bender and Brian are all sitting around
waiting for the Cokes.

BENDER
Claire…you wanna see a picture of
a guy with elephantitus of the nuts?
It’s pretty tasty…

CLAIRE
No thank you…

BENDER
How do you think he rides a bike?

Claire rolls her eyes and turns away in disgust.

BENDER
Oh, Claire…would you ever consider
dating a guy like this?

CLAIRE
Can’t you just leave me alone?

BENDER
I mean if he had a great personality
and was a good dancer and had a cool
car…Although you’d probably have
to ride in the back seat ‘cause his
nuts would ride shotgun.

CLAIRE
You know what I wish I was doing?

BENDER
Op, watch what you say, Brian here
is a cherry.

BRIAN
A cherry?

CLAIRE
I wish I was on a plane to France.

BRIAN
I’m not a cherry.

BENDER
(to Brian)
When have you ever gotten laid?

BRIAN
I’ve laid, lotsa times!

BENDER
Name one!

BRIAN
She lives in Canada, met her at
Niagra Falls. You wouldn’t know
her.

BENDER
Ever laid anyone around here.

Brian shushes Bender and points at Claire whos back is
still turned.

BRIAN
Oh, you and Claire, did it!

Claire spins around.

CLAIRE
What are you talking about?

BRIAN
(to Claire)
Nothin’, nothin!
(to Bender)
Let’s just drop it, we’ll talk about
it later!

CLAIRE
No! Drop what, what’re you talking
about?

BENDER
Well, Brian’s trying to tell me that
in addition to the number of girls
in the Niagra Falls area, that
presently you and he are, riding
the hobby horse!

CLAIRE
(to Brian)
Little pig!

BRIAN
No I’m not! I’m not! John said I
was a cherry and I said I wasn’t,
that’s it, that’s all that was said!

BENDER
Well then what were you motioning to
Claire for?

CLAIRE
You know I don’t appreciate this
very much, Brian.

BRIAN
He is lying!

BENDER
Oh you weren’t motioning to Claire?

BRIAN
You know he’s lying, right?

BENDER
Were you or were you not motioning
to Claire?

BRIAN
Yeah, but it was only…was only
because I didn’t want her to know
that I was a virgin, okay?

Bender just stares at him.

BRIAN
Excuse me for being a virgin, I’m
sorry…

Claire laughs.

CLAIRE
Why didn’t you want me to know you
were a virgin?

BRIAN
Because it’s personal business, it’s
my personal, private business.

BENDER
Well Brian, it doesn’t sound like
you’re doing any business…

CLAIRE
I think it’s okay for a guy to be a
virgin…

Bender looks suprised.

BRIAN
You do?

Claire smiles and nods.
CUT TO:

18. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Later.

Everybody has lunches now.

Claire begins to take hers out of a small shopping bag.

BENDER
What’s in there?

CLAIRE
Guess, where’s your lunch?

BENDER
You’re wearing it…

CLAIRE
You’re nauseating…

Bender grabs a Coke and tosses it over to Allison who
catches it without even looking up.

Bender then watches Claire set up a sushi platter.

BENDER
What’s that?

CLAIRE
Sushi…

BENDER
Sushi?

CLAIRE
Rice, uh, raw fish and seaweed.

BENDER
You won’t accept a guys tongue in
your mouth and you’re gonna eat
that?

CLAIRE
Can I eat?

BENDER
I don’t know…give it a try…

We now watch Andrew take a couple sandwiches out of his
bag, a bag of potato chips, an apple, a banana, a bag
of cookies and a carton of milk.

Allison opens her Coke and it fizzes over. She loudly
slurps it up off the table and her fingers.

Andrew sees Bender looking at him.

ANDREW
What’s your problem?

Allison opens her sandwich and and tosses the meat up.
It lands on the sculpture above.

She opens some pixie stix and pours the sugar on the
sandwich and then puts Cap’n Crunch on top of that.
She crushes the sandwich together and loudly eats it.

Bender goes over and sits by Brian, Bender takes
Brian’s bag lunch.

BENDER
What’re we having?

BRIAN
Uh, it’s your standard, regular
lunch I guess…

Bender reaches in the bag and pulls out a thermos. He
sets it on the table and points at it.

BENDER
Milk?

BRIAN
Soup.

Bender goes in again and pulls out a juice box.
Brian reaches toward the bag and Bender slaps his hand.

BRIAN
That’s apple juice…

BENDER
I can read! PB & J with the crusts
cut off…Well Brian, this is a
very nutritous lunch, all the food
groups are represented. Did your
mom marry Mr. Rogers?

BRIAN
Uh, no, Mr. Johnson…

BENDER
Ahhh….

Andrew and Claire smile at each other. Bender stands.

BENDER
Here’s my impression of life at big
Bri’s house…
(in a loud and friendly voice)
Son!
(in a kiddie voice)
Yeah Dad?
(loud)
How’s your day, pal?
(kiddie)
Great Dad, how’s yours?
(loud)
Super, say son, how’d you like to go
fishing this weekend?
(kiddie)
Great Dad, but I’ve got homework to
do!
(loud)
That’s alright son, you can do it,
on the boat!
(kiddie)
Geee!!!
(loud)
Dear, isn’t our son swell?
(quiet and motherly)
Yes Dear, isn’t life swell?

Bender mimes mother kissing father and then father
kissing mother and then father punching mother in the
face.

Suddenly it’s not so funny anymore.

ANDREW
Alright, what about your family?

BENDER
Oh, mine?

ANDREW
That’s real easy!

Bender stands again and points forward.

BENDER
(as his father)
Stupid, worthless, no good, God
damned, freeloading, son of a bitch,
retarded, bigmouth, know it all,
asshole, jerk!
(as his mother)
You forgot ugly, lazy and
disrespectful.

Bender slams his hand back to slap his invisable
mother.

BENDER
(as his father)
Shut up bitch! Go fix me a turkey
pot pie!
(as himself)
What about you Dad?
(as his father)
Fuck you!
(as himself)
No, Dad, what about you?
(as his father)
Fuck you!
(as himself–yelling)
No, Dad, what about you?
(as his father–yelling)
Fuck you!

He reaches out and pretend he’s his father hitting him.

BRIAN
Is that for real?

BENDER
(to Brian)
You wanna come over sometime?

ANDREW
That’s bullshit. It’s all part of
your image, I don’t believe a word
of it.

Bender actually looks hurt.

BENDER
You don’t believe me?

ANDREW
No…

BENDER
No?

ANDREW
Did I stutter?

Bender comes over to Andrew and rolls up his right
sleeve to reveal a circular shaped burn.

BENDER
Do you believe this? Huh? It’s
about the size of a cigar…Do I
stutter? You see, this is what you
get in my house when you spill paint
in the garage.

Bender begins to walk away.

BENDER
See I don’t think that I need to
sit here with you fuckin’ dildos anymore!

Bender walks over to a map table and throws all the
maps on the floor. He climbs up on top of the table and
then up to the second floor balcony.

CLAIRE
(to Andrew)
You shouldn’t have said that!

ANDREW
How would I know, I mean he lies
about everything anyway!
CUT TO:

19. INT. VERNON’S OFFICE – DAY

Vernon puts an orange in his mouth and then attempts to
pour coffee out of his thermos. The top comes off and
the coffee goes all over his desk.

VERNON
Oh, shit!
CUT TO:

20. INT. HALLWAY – DAY

Vernon walks into the hallway, talking to himself.

VERNON
Coffee…looks like they scrape it
off the bottom of the Mississippi
river. Everything’s polluted,
everything’s polluted…the coffee.

Bender comes out of the library doors followed
bye veryone else.

Bender and Claire are walking next to each other.
Brian and Andrew are walking next to each other and at the
end of the line, Allison is following.

CLAIRE
(to Bender)
How do you know where Vernon went?

BENDER
I don’t…

CLAIRE
Well then, how do you know when he’ll
be back?

BENDER
I don’t…being bad feels pretty
good, huh?

BRIAN
(to Andrew)
What’s the point in going to Bender’s
locker?

ANDREW
Beats me…

BRIAN
This is so stupid…Why do you think,
why are we risking getting caught?

ANDREW
I dunno…

BRIAN
So then what are we doing?

ANDREW
You ask me one more question and I’m
beating the shit out of you!

BRIAN
Sorry…

Bender opens his locker.

ANDREW
Slob!

BENDER
My maid’s on vacation.

Bender pulls out a bag of marijuana.

BRIAN
Drugs…

ANDREW
Screw that Bender…put it back!

Bender walks away.

BRIAN
Drugs…the boy had marijuana.

Claire walks after Bender.

BRIAN
That was marijuana!

ANDREW
Shut up!

Andrew follows the other two. Brian looks at Allison
who is standing there with her mouth open.

BRIAN
Do you approve of this?

Brian turns and leaves. Allison steals the lock off of
Bender’s locker.

We see the crowd walking down the hall.

BENDER
We’ll cross through the lab, and
then we’ll double back.

ANDREW
You better be right, if Vernon cuts
us off it’s your fault, asshole!

BRIAN
(to Claire)
What’d he say? Where’re we going?

They see Vernon down one of the halls. We have various
sequences of them running around and seeing Vernon
until they stop.

BENDER
Wait! Wait, hold it! Hold it! We
have to go through the cafeteria!

ANDREW
No, the activities hall.

BENDER
Hey man, you don’t know what you’re
talking about!

ANDREW
No you don’t know what you’re
talking about!

Allison squeaks.

ANDREW
Now we’re through listening to you,
we’re going this way.

They all go Andrew’s way and run into a hall closed by
an iron gate.

ANDREW
Shit!

BENDER
Great idea Jagoff!

ANDREW
Fuck you!

CLAIRE
(to Andrew)
Fuck you! Why didn’t you listen to
John?

BRIAN
We’re dead!

BENDER
No, just me!

BRIAN
What do you mean?

BENDER
Get back to the library, keep your
unit on this!

Bender puts his bag of marijuana into Brian’s
underwear.

Bender runs away singing loudly. “I wanna be an
airborne ranger…”

We see Vernon hear Bender.

The rest of them run.

VERNON
That son of a bitch!

We see Vernon looking for Bender until he finds him in
the gym.

Bender is going up for a basket.

BENDER
Three…two…one!

He dunks the ball. Vernon enters.

VERNON
Bender! Bender! Bender! What is
this? What are you doing here, what
is this?

BENDER
Oh, hi!

VERNON
Out! That’s it Bender! Out, it’s
over!

BENDER
Don’t you wanna hear my excuse?

VERNON
Out!

BENDER
I’m thinking of trying out for a
scholarship.

VERNON
Gimmie the ball, Bender.

Bender fakes the ball at Vernon. He then sets the ball
down and rolls it at Vernon who kicks it back at him.

They leave.
CUT TO:

21. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

The rest of the kids are all sitting back in their
seats when Bender and Vernon enter. Vernon pushes Bender.

VERNON
Get your stuff, let’s go!
(to everyone)
Mr. Wiseguy here has taken it upon
himself to go to the gymnasium. I’m
sorry to inform you, you’re going to
be without his services for the rest
of the day.

BENDER
(to Vernon)
B-O-O H-O-O!

VERNON
Everything’s a big joke, huh Bender?
The false alarm you pulled, Friday,
false alarms are really funny,
aren’t they…What if your home,
what if your family…
(a beat)
…what if your dope was on fire?

BENDER
Impossible, sir…It’s in Johnson’s
underwear…

Andrew laughs.

VERNON
(to Andrew)
You think he’s funny? You think
this is cute? You think he’s
bitchin’, is that it? Lemme tell
you something. Look at him, he’s a
bum.
(to everybody)
You wanna see something funny? You
go visit John Bender in five years!
You’ll see how God damned funny he
is!
(to Bender)
What’s the matter, John? You gonna
cry? Let’s go…

Vernon grabs Bender’s shoulder.

BENDER
Hey keep your fuckin’ hands off me!
I expect better manners from you,
Dick!

Bender takes his sunglasses out of his pocket and lays
them in front of Andrew.

BENDER
For better hallway vision!

Bender leaves but not before pushing stuff over on the
way.
CUT TO:

21. INT. CLOSET – DAY

Vernon has put Bender in a closet and is in there
talking to him.

VERNON
That’s the last time, Bender. That’s
the last time you ever make me look
bad in front of those kids, do you
hear me? I make $31,000 dollars a
year and I have a home and I’m not
about to throw it away on some punk
like you…But someday, man, someday.
When you’re outta here and you’ve
forgotten all about this place…
And they’ve forgotten all about you
and you’re wrapped up in your own
pathetic life…I’m gonna be there.
That’s right. And I’m gonna kick
the living shit out of you, man, I’m
gonna knock your dick in the dirt!

BENDER
Are you threatening me?

VERNON
What’re you gonna do about it? You
think anybody’s gonna believe you?
You think anybody’s gonna take your
word over mine? I’m a man of
respect around here. They love me
around here, I’m a swell guy…you’re
a lying sack of shit! And everybody
knows it. Oh, you’re a real tough
guy…come on, come on…get on your
feet, pal! Let’s find out how
tough you are! I wanna know right
now, how tough you are! Come on!
I’ll give you the first punch, let’s
go! Come on, right here, just take
the first shot! Please, I’m begging
you, take a shot! Come on, just
take one shot, that’s all I need,
just one swing…

Bender just sits there staring at Vernon. Vernon fakes
a punch and Bender flinches.

VERNON
That’s what I though…you’re a
gutless turd!

Vernon leaves and locks the closet door after him.
Bender climbs into a hatch in the ceiling and
disappears.
CUT TO:

22. INT. HEATING DUCT – DAY

Bender is slowly crawling through a heating duct.

BENDER
(to himself)
A naked blond walks into a bar, with
a poodle under one arm and a two
foot salami under the other. She
lays the poodle on the table. Bar-
tender says: “I suppose you won’t
be needing a drink.” The naked
lady says…

The ceiling under Bender gives and he falls through.

BENDER
(screaming)
Oh shit!!!!
CUT TO:

23. INT. FACILTY BATHROOM – DAY

We see the door to the bathroom. We hear Vernon
inside.

VERNON (OS)
Jesus Christ, allmighty!
CUT TO

24. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Bender walks down the stairs.

BENDER
I forgot my pencil…

We hear Vernon in the hall.

VERNON (OS)
God damnit! What in God’s name is
going on in here?

Vernon enters.

VERNON
What was that ruckus?

ANDREW
Uh, what ruckus?

VERNON
I was just in my office and I heard
a ruckus!

BRIAN
Could you describe the ruckus, sir?

VERNON
Watch your tongue young man, watch
it!

We see Bender under the table by Claire’s legs. He
sits up and bangs his head on the table. He groans.

Above the table, Andrew and Claire try to take credit
for the noise by making more noise.

VERNON
What is that? What, what is that,
what is that noise?

Under the table, Bender looks between Claire’s legs and
can see her panties. He puts his head between Claire’s
legs.

ANDREW
What noise?

CLAIRE
Really, sir, there wasn’t any noise…

Claire squeels. She squeezes Bender’s head between her
knees.

Everyone starts faking a coughing fit.

CLAIRE
(flustered)
That noise? Was that the noise you
were talking about?

VERNON
No, it wasn’t. That was not the
noise I was talking about. Now, I
may not have caught you in the act
this time, but you can bet I will.

Allison laughs at Vernon.

VERNON
You make book on that missy!
(to Claire)
And you! I will not be made a fool
of!

He turns and walks away. We see that he still has the
toilet seat cover stuck to his pants.
Vernon leaves.

Everyone laughs except Claire who lets Bender out to a
barage of slaps.

BENDER
It was an accident!

CLAIRE
You’re an asshole!

BENDER
So sue me…

Bender gets up and walks over to Brian.

BENDER
So, Ahab…Kybo Mein Doobage…

Brian gives Bender his bag of marajuana. Bender turns
and walks away.

ANDREW
Yo waistoid…you’re not gonna blaze
up in here!

Claire gets up and goes after him. Then Brian.

ANDREW
Shit…

Andrew goes.
CUT TO:

25. INT. STAIRS – DAY

We see Vernon go down the stairs.
CUT TO:

26. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Brian, Bender and Claire are sitting in a circle and
laughing hysterically.

Bender lights Claire up and she coughs the smoke out.
Brian laughs at her. He exhales and tries to eat the
smoke. He talks in a really weird voice.

BRIAN
Chicks, cannot hold der smoke! That’s
what it is!

CLAIRE
Do you know how popular I am? I’m
so popular, everybody loves me so
much, at this school…

BENDER
Poor baby.

Brian waves Claire over to him and he falls over.

We see Andrew emerge from a really smokey room. He
inhales another puff and then starts dancing to
everybody’s applause.

He goes back in the room he was in. He screams and it
shatters the glass in the door.
CUT TO:

27. INT. BASEMENT – DAY

Vernon is glancing through the confidential files in
the
school basement.

VERNON
(to himself)
Mister, oh mister Tearney…a
history of slight mental illness?
Wooh, no wonder he’s so fucked up!

Carl enters.

CARL
Afternoon, Dick…

VERNON
Hey Carl, how you doin’?

CARL
Good…

VERNON
Good, what’s up?

CARL
Not much, what’s happening, what
are you doing in the basement files?

VERNON
Oh, nothin’ nothin’ here. I’m just
doin’ a little homework here…

CARL
Homework, huh?

VERNON
Yeah…

Carl, laughing, comes over and looks at the files that
Vernon was looking at.

CARL
Confidential files…hmmm?

VERNON
Look, Carl…this is a highly
sensitive area and I, I tell you
something…certain people would be
very very embarrassed. I would really
appreciate it if if if if this would
be something that, that you and I
could keep between us…

CARL
What’re you gonna do for me, man?

VERNON
Well, well what would you like?

CARL
Got fifty bucks?

VERNON
What?

CARL
Fifty bucks…
CUT TO:

28. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

We see Andrew and Brian laughing. Allison is hanging
out over by the statue in the back of the library.

ANDREW
No no man, no; you got a middle
name?

BRIAN
Yeah, guess…

Allison suddenly takes interest in the conversation and
as she speaks, she moves over and sits next to the two.

ALLISON
Your middle name is Ralph, as in
puke…

Brian and Andrew look at her in confusion.

ALLISON
…your birthday is March 12th,
you’re five-nine and a half you
weigh a hundred and thirty pounds
and your social security number is
0-4-9-3-8-0-9-1
(a beat)
3.

Andrew is impressed.

ANDREW
Wow! Are you psychic?

ALLISON
No…

BRIAN
Well would you mind telling me how
you know all this about me?

Allison reaches in her bag.

ALLISON
I stole your wallet…

She produces it in her hands and grins.

BRIAN
Give it to me…

ALLISON
No…

BRIAN
Give it!

Allison reluctantly hands over the wallet and Brian
glances through it to make sure nothing is missing.

BRIAN
This is great…you’re a thief too!
Huh?

ALLISON
I’m not a thief!

BRIAN
Multi-talented!

ALLISON
What’s there to steal? Two bucks
and a beaver shot!

ANDREW
A what?

ALLISON
He’s got a nudie picture in there!
I saw it, it’s perverted!

ANDREW
Alright, let’s see it!

We see Bender, he is brushing his teeth with one of
Claire’s cosmetic brushes.

We see Claire looking through Bender’s wallet pictures.

CLAIRE
Are all these your girlfriends?

BENDER
Some of them…

CLAIRE
What about the others?

BENDER
Well, some I consider my girlfriends
and some…I just consider…

CLAIRE
Consider what?

BENDER
Whether or not, I wanna hang out
with them…

CLAIRE
You don’t believe in just one guy,
one girl?

BENDER
Do you?

CLAIRE
Yeah…that’s the way it should be.

BENDER
Well, not for me…

CLAIRE
Why not?

Bender clearly doesn’t want to answer that. He acts
defensive.

BENDER
How come you got so much shit in
your purse?

CLAIRE
How come you got so many
girlfriends?

BENDER
I asked you first…

CLAIRE
(shrugs)
I dunno…I guess I never throw
anything away.

BENDER
Neither do I…

CLAIRE
Oh…

We cut back to where Andrew, Brian and Allison are
sitting, Andrew is looking through Brian’s wallet.

ANDREW
This is the worst fake ID I’ve ever
seen…

Brian laughs.

ANDREW
Do you realize you made yourself
sixty eight?

BRIAN
Oh, I know…I know, I goofed it…

ANDREW
What do you need a fake ID for?

BRIAN
(like it’s obvious)
So I can vote!

Allison looks up suddenly.

ALLISON
You wanna see what’s in my bag?

BRIAN & ANDREW
No!

Allison looks hurt and then resentful. Just to spite
them, she dumps the contents of her bag onto the couch.

Lots of stuff comes out.

ANDREW
Holy shit! What is all that stuff?

BRIAN
Do you always carry this much shit
in your bag?

ALLISON
Yeah…I always carry this much shit
…in my bag…You never know when
you may have to jam…

BRIAN
Are you gonna be like a shopping
bag lady? You know like, sit in
alleyways and like talk to buildings
and wear men’s shoes and that kinda
thing?

ALLISON
I’ll do what I have to do…

BRIAN
Why do you have to do anything?

ALLISON
(with feeling)
My home life is un…satisfying…

BRIAN
So you’re saying you’d subject
yourself to the violent dangers of
the Chicago streets because your
homelife is unsatisfying?

ALLISON
I don’t have to run away and live
in the street…I can run away and,
go to the ocean, I can go to the
country, I can go to the mountains.
I can go to Israel, Africa,
Afghanistan…

Brian looks at her and then moves over to Andrew.

BRIAN
Andy…you wanna get in on this?
Allison here says, she wants to run
away, because her home life is
unsatisfying…

ANDREW
Well everyone’s home lives are un-
satisfying…If it wasn’t, people
would live with there parents
forever…

BRIAN
Yeah, yeah I understand. But I
think that her’s goes beyond, you
know, what guys like you and me…
consider normal unsatisfying…

ALLISON
Nevermind…forget it, everything’s
cool!

Allison starts putting everything back in her purse.

ANDREW
What’s the deal?

ALLISON
No! There’s no deal, Sporto.
Forget it, leave me alone.

ANDREW
Wait a minute, now you’re carrying
all that crap around in your purse.
Either you really wanna run away or
you want people to think you wanna
run away.

ALLISON
Eat shit!

Allison gets up and walks away.

BRIAN
The girl is an island, with herself.
Okay?

Andrew gets up and goes after her.

ANDREW
Hi, you wanna talk?

ALLISON
No!

ANDREW
Why not?

ALLISON
Go away…

ANDREW
Where do you want me to go?

ALLISON
GO away!

Andrew turns away and Allison starts to cry.

ALLISON
You have problems…

ANDREW
Oh, I have problems?

ALLISON
You do everything everybody ever
tells you to do, that is a problem!

ANDREW
Okay, fine…but I didn’t dump my
purse out on the couch and invite
people into my problems…Did I?
So what’s wrong? What is it? Is
is bad? Real bad? Parents?

Allison is silently crying.

ALLISON
Yeah…

Andrew nods.

ANDREW
What do they do to you?

ALLISON
They ignore me…

ANDREW
Yeah…yeah…

They both are crying silently.
CUT TO:

29. INT. BASEMENT – DAY

Vernon and Carl are sitting talking.

VERNON
What did you want to be when you
were young?

CARL
When I was a kid, I wanted to be
John Lennon…

VERNON
Carl don’t be a goof! I’m trying
to make a serious point here…I’ve
been teaching, for twenty two years,
and each year…these kids get more
and more arrogant.

CARL
Aw bull shit, man. Come on Vern,
the kids haven’t changed, you have!
You took a teaching position, ‘cause
you thought it’d be fun, right?
Thought you could have summer
vacations off…and then you found
out it was actually work…and that
really bummed you out.

VERNON
These kids turned on me…they think
I’m a big fuckin’ joke…

CARL
Come on…listen Vern, if you were
sixteen, what would you think of
you, huh?

VERNON
Hey…Carl, you think I give one
rat’s ass what these kids think of
me?

CARL
Yes I do…

VERNON
You think about this…when you get
old, these kids; when I get old,
they’re gonna be runnin’ the country.

CARL
Yeah?

VERNON
Now this is the thought that wakes
me up in the middle of the night…
That when I get older, these kids
are gonna take care of me…

CARL
I wouldn’t count on it!

Vernon ponders that statement for a moment.
CUT TO:

30. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

They are sitting on the floor in a circle.

ANDREW
What would I do for a million bucks?
Well, I guess I’d do as little as I
had to…

CLAIRE
That’s boring…

ANDREW
Well, how’m I s’posed to answer?

CLAIRE
The idea is to like search your mind
for the absolute limit. Like, uh,
would you drive to school naked?

Andrew laughs.

ANDREW
Um, uh…would I have to get out of
the car?

CLAIRE
Of course…

ANDREW
In the spring, or winter?

CLAIRE
It doesn’t matter…spring…

ANDREW
In front of the school or in back
of the school?

CLAIRE
Either one…

ANDREW
Yes…

ALLISON
I’d do that!

They all look at her.

ALLISON
I’ll do anything sexual, I don’t
need a million dollars to do it
either…

CLAIRE
You’re lying…

ALLISON
I already have…I’ve done just
about everything there is except a
few things that are illegal…I’m a
nymphomaniac!

Claire rolls her eyes.

CLAIRE
Lie…

BRIAN
Are your parents aware of this?

ALLISON
The only person I told was my
shrink…

ANDREW
And what’d he do when you told him?

ALLISON
He nailed me…

CLAIRE
Very nice…

ALLISON
I don’t think that from a legal
standpoint what he did can be
construed as rape since I paid him.

CLAIRE
He’s an adult!

Allison is relishing this attention.

ALLISON
Yeah…he’s married too!

Claire notes her disgust.

CLAIRE
Do you have any idea how completely
gross that is?

ALLISON
Well, the first few times…

CLAIRE
First few times? You mean he did it
more than once?

ALLISON
Sure…

CLAIRE
Are you crazy?

BRIAN
Obviously she’s crazy if she’s
screwing her shrink…

ALLISON
(to Claire)
Have you ever done it?

CLAIRE
I don’t even have a psychiatrist…

ALLISON
Have you ever done it with a normal
person?

CLAIRE
Now, didn’t we already cover this?

BENDER
You never answered the question…

CLAIRE
Look, I’m not gonna discuss my
private life with total strangers.

ALLISON
It’s kind of a double-edged sword,
isn’t it?

CLAIRE
A what?

ALLISON
Well, if you say you haven’t…
you’re a prude. If you say you
have…you’re a slut! It’s a trap.
You want to but you can’t but when
you do you wish you didn’t, right?

CLAIRE
Wrong…

ALLISON
Or, are you a tease?

ANDREW
She’s a tease…

CLAIRE
Oh why don’t you just forget it…

ANDREW
You’re a tease and you know it, all
girls are teases!

BENDER
(to Andrew)
She’s only a tease if what she does
gets you hot…

CLAIRE
I don’t do anything!

ALLISON
That’s why you’re a tease…

CLAIRE
Okay, lemme ask you a few questions.

Allison is suddenly defensive.

ALLISON
I’ve already told you everything!

CLAIRE
No! Doesn’t it bother you to sleep
around without being in love. I
mean don’t you want any respect?

ALLISON
I don’t screw to get respect…That’s
the difference between you and me…

CLAIRE
Not the only difference, I hope.

BENDER
Face it, you’re a tease.

CLAIRE
I’m not a tease!

BENDER
Sure you are! You said it yourself
sex is a weapon, you use it to get
respect!

CLAIRE
No, I never said that, she twisted
my words around.

BENDER
Oh then what do you use it for?

CLAIRE
I don’t use it period!

Claire is on the verge of tears.

BENDER
Oh, are you medically frigid or is
it psychological?

CLAIRE
I didn’t mean it that way! You guys
are putting words into my mouth!

BENDER
Well if you’d just answer the
question…

BRIAN
Why don’t you just answer the
question?

ANDREW
Be honest…

BENDER
No big deal…

BRIAN
Yeah, answer it!

ANDREW
Answer the question, Claire!

BENDER
Talk to us!

ANDREW & BRIAN
Come on, answer the question!

BENDER
It’s easy, it’s only one question!

Claire silences all of them by screaming.

CLAIRE
(screaming)
No! I never did it!

Silence for two beats.

ALLISON
I never did it either, I’m not a
nymphomaniac…I’m a compulsive
liar…

CLAIRE
You are such a bitch! You did that
on purpose just to fuck me over!

ALLISON
I would do it though…If you love
someone it’s okay…

CLAIRE
I can’t believe you, you’re so
weird. You don’t say anything all
day and then when you open your
mouth…you unload all these
tremendous lies all over me!

ANDREW
You’re just pissed off because she
got you to admit something you didn’t
want to admit to…

CLAIRE
Okay, fine, but that doesn’t make it
any less bizarre…

ANDREW
What’s bizarre? I mean we’re all
pretty bizarre! Some of us are just
better at hiding it, that’s all.

CLAIRE
(to Andrew)
How are you bizarre?

Allison decides to field that question.

ALLISON
He can’t think for himself…

ANDREW
She’s right…do you guys know what,
uh, what I did to get in here? I
taped Larry Lester’s buns together.

Claire laughs.

BRIAN
(to Andrew)
That was you?

ANDREW
(to Brian)
Yeah, you know him?

BRIAN
Yeah, I know him…

ANDREW
Well then you know how hairy he is,
right? Well, when they pulled the
tape off, most of his hair came off
and some, some skin too…

CLAIRE
Oh my God…

ANDREW
And the bizarre thing is, is that
I did it for my old man…I
tortured this poor kid, because I
wanted him to think that I was cool.
He’s always going off about, you
know, when he was in school…all
the wild things he used to do. And
I got the feeling that he was
disappointed that I never cut loose
on anyone, right…So, I’m…I’m
sitting in the locker room, and I’m
taping up my knee. And Larry’s
undressing a couple lockers down
from me. Yeah…he’s kinda…
he’s kinda skinny, weak. And I
started thinking about my father,
and his attitude about weakness.
And the next thing I knew, I uh, I
jumped on top of him and started
wailing on him…And my friends,
they just laughed and cheered me on.
And afterwards, when I was sittin’
in Vernon’s office, all I could
think about was Larry’s father. And
Larry havin’ to go home and…and
explain what happened to him. And
the humiliation…fucking
humiliation he mustuv felt. It
mustuv been unreal…I mean,
(he’s crying)
I mean, how do you apologize for
something like that? There’s no
way…it’s all because of me and
my old man. Oh God, I fucking hate
him! He’s like this…he’s like
this mindless machine that I can’t
even relate to anymore…”Andrew,
you’ve got to be number one! I
won’t tolerate any losers in this
family…Your intensity is for shit!
Win. Win! WIN!!!” You son of a
bitch! You know, sometimes, I wish
my knee would give…and I wouldn’t
be able to wrestle anymore. And he
could forget all about me…

BENDER
I think your old man and my old man
should get together and go bowling.

Andrew laughs briefly.

BRIAN
It’s like me, you know, with my
grades…like, when I, when I
step outside myself kinda, and
when I, when I look in at myself
you know? And I see me and I don’t
like what I see, I really don’t.

CLAIRE
What’s wrong with you? Why don’t
you like yourself?

BRIAN
‘Cause I’m stupid…’cause I’m failing
shop. See we had this assignment,
to make this ceramic elephant, and
um…and we had eight weeks to do
it and we’re s’posed ta, and it was
like a lamp, and when you pull the
trunk the light was s’posed to go
on…my light didn’t go on, I got a
F on it. Never got a F in my life…
When I signed up, you know, for the
course I mean. I thought I was
playing it real smart, you know.
‘Cause I thought, I’ll take shop,
it’ll be such an easy way to
maintain my grade point average…

BENDER
Why’d you think it’d be easy?

BRIAN
Have you seen some of the dopes that
take shop?

BENDER
I take shop…you must be a fuckin’
idiot!

BRIAN
I’m a fuckin’ idiot because I can’t
make a lamp?

BENDER
No, you’re a genius because you
can’t make a lamp…

BRIAN
What do you know about Trigonometry?

BENDER
I could care less about
Trigonometry…

BRIAN
Bender, did you know without
Trigonometry there’d be no
engineering?

BENDER
Without lamps, there’d be no light!

CLAIRE
Okay so neither one of you is any
better than the other one…

Allison feels left out.

ALLISON
I can write with my toes! I can
also eat, brush my teeth…

CLAIRE
With your feet?

ALLISON
…play Heart & Soul on the piano.

BRIAN
I can make spaghetti!

CLAIRE
(to Andrew)
What can you do?

ANDREW
I can…uh…tape all your buns
together…

BENDER
I wanna see what Claire can do!

CLAIRE
I can’t do anything.

BENDER
Now, everybody can do something…

CLAIRE
There’s one thing I can do, no
forget it, it’s way too embarrassing.

BENDER
You ever seen Wild Kingdom? I mean
that guy’s been doing that show for
thirty years.

CLAIRE
Okay, but you have to swear to God
you won’t laugh…I can’t believe
I’m actually doing this…

Claire takes lipstick out and opens it. She places it
between her breasts and applies it from her cleavage.

When she lifts her head, her lipstick is perfect.

Everyone claps. Bender’s clap is sarcastic and slow.

ANDREW
All right, great! Where’d you learn
to do that?

CLAIRE
Camp, seventh grade…

BENDER
That was great, Claire…my image of
you is totally blown…

ALLISON
You’re a shit! Don’t do that to her
you swore to God you wouldn’t laugh!

BENDER
Am I laughing?

ANDREW
You fucking prick!

Bender turns to Andrew. As he speaks, we can see his
words hitting home.

BENDER
What do you care what I think,
anyway? I don’t even count, right?
I could disappear forever and it
wouldn’t make any difference…I may
as well not even exist at this
school, remember?
(he turns to Claire)
And you…don’t like me anyway!

CLAIRE
You know, I have just as many
feelings as you do and it hurts
just as much when somebody steps
all over them!

BENDER
God, you’re so pathetic!
(furious)
Don’t you ever…ever! Compare
yourself to me! Okay? You got
everything, and I got shit! Fuckin’
Rapunzel, right? School would
probably fucking shut down if you
didn’t show up! “Queenie isn’t
here!” I like those earrings Claire.

CLAIRE
(quietly)
Shut up…

BENDER
Are those real diamonds, Claire?

CLAIRE
(angry)
Shut up!

BENDER CLAIRE
I bet they are…did you
work, for the money Shut…
for those earrings? Your mouth!

BENDER
Or did your daddy buy those?

CLAIRE
(furious)
Shut up!

Claire starts crying.

BENDER
I bet he bought those for you! I
bet those are a Christmas gift!
Right? You know what I got for
Christmas this year? It was a
banner fuckin’ year at the old
Bender family! I got a carton of
cigarettes. The old man grabbed me
and said “Hey! Smoke up Johnny!”
Okay, so go home’n cry to your
daddy, don’t cry here, okay?

There are a few beats.

ANDREW
My God, are we gonna be like our
parents?

CLAIRE
Not me…ever…

ALLISON
It’s unavoidable, it just happens.

CLAIRE
What happens?

ALLISON
When you grow up, your heart dies.

BENDER
Who cares?

Allison is on the verge of tears herself.

ALLISON
I care…

BRIAN
Um, I was just thinking, I mean. I
know it’s kind of a weird time, but
I was just wondering, um, what is
gonna happen to us on Monday? When
we’re all together again? I mean I
consider you guys my friends, I’m
not wrong, am I?

ANDREW
No…

BRIAN
So, so on Monday…what happens?

CLAIRE
Are we still friends, you mean?
If we’re friends now, that is?

BRIAN
Yeah…

CLAIRE
Do you want the truth?

BRIAN
Yeah, I want the truth…

CLAIRE
I don’t think so…

ALLISON
Well, do you mean all of us or just
John?

CLAIRE
With all of you…

ANDREW
That’s a real nice attitude, Claire!

CLAIRE
Oh, be honest, Andy…if Brian came
walking up to you in the hall on
Monday, what would you do? I mean
picture this, you’re there with all
the sports. I know exactly what
you’d do, you’d say hi to him and
when he left you’d cut him all up
so your friends wouldn’t think you
really liked him!

ANDREW
No way!

ALLISON
‘Kay, what if I came up to you?

CLAIRE
Same exact thing!

BENDER
(furious and screaming at Claire)
You are a bitch!

CLAIRE
Why? ‘Cause I’m telling the truth,
that makes me a bitch?

BENDER
No! ‘Cause you know how shitty that
is to do to someone! And you don’t
got the balls to stand up to your
friends and tell ‘em that you’re
gonna like who you wanna like!

CLAIRE
Okay, what about you, you hypocrite!
Why don’t you take Allison to one of
your heavy metal vomit parties? Or
take Brian out to the parking lot at
lunch to get high? What about Andy
for that matter, what about me?
What would your friends say if we
were walking down the hall together.
They’d laugh their asses off and
you’d probably tell them you were
doing it with me so they’d forgive
you for being seen with me.

BENDER
(furious once again)
Don’t you ever talk about my
friends! You don’t know any of my
friends, you don’t look at any of my
friends and you certainly wouldn’t
condescend to speak to any of my
friends so you just stick to the
things you know, shopping, nail
polish, your father’s BMW and your
poor–rich–drunk mother in the
Carribean!

CLAIRE
(furious and sobbing)
Shut up!

BENDER
And as far as being concerned about
what’s gonna happen when you and I
walk down the hallways at school,
you can forget it! ‘Cause it’s never
gonna happen! Just bury your head
in the sand…and wait for your
fuckin’ prom!

CLAIRE
I hate you!

BENDER
Yeah? Good!

There is silence until Brian speaks.

BRIAN
Then I assume Allison and I are
better people than you guys, huh?
Us weirdos…
(to Allison)
Do you, would you do that to me?

ALLISON
I don’t have any friends…

BRIAN
Well if you did?

ALLISON
No…I don’t think the kind of
friends I’d have would mind…

BRIAN
I just wanna tell, each of you,
that I wouldn’t do that…I wouldn’t
and I will not! ‘Cause I think that’s
real shitty…

CLAIRE
Your friends wouldn’t mind because
they look up to us…

Brian laughs at her.

BRIAN
You’re so conceited, Claire. You’re
so conceited. You’re so, like, full
of yourself, why are you like that?

CLAIRE
(crying again)
I’m not saying that to be conceited!
I hate it! I hate having to go
along with everything my friends say!

BRIAN
Well then why do you do it?

CLAIRE
I don’t know, I don’t…you don’t
understand..you don’t. You’re not
friends with the same kind of people
that Andy and I are friends with!
You know, you just don’t understand
the pressure that they can put on
you!

Brian is shocked.

BRIAN
I don’t understand what? You think
I don’t understand pressure, Claire?
Well fuck you! Fuck you!

Brian hides his head in his arm because he is crying.

BRIAN
Know why I’m here today? Do you?
I’m here because Mr. Ryan found a
gun in the locker…

ANDREW
Why’d you have a gun in your locker?

BRIAN
I tried. You pull the fuckin’ trunk
on it and the light’s s’posed to go
on…and it didn’t go on, I mean,
I…

ANDREW
What’s the gun for Brian?

BRIAN
Just forget it…

ANDREW
You brought it up, man!

BRIAN
I can’t have an F, I can’t have it
and I know my parents can’t have it!
Even if I aced the rest of the
semester, I’m still only a B. And
everything’s ruined for me!

CLAIRE
(with pity)
Oh Brian…

Brian bashes a chair over.

BRIAN
So I considered my options, you
know?

CLAIRE
No! Killing yourself is not an
option!

BRIAN
Well I didn’t do it, did I? No, I
don’t think so!

ALLISON
It was a hand gun?

BRIAN
No, it was a flare gun, went off
in my locker.

ANDREW
Really?

Andrew starts to laugh.

BRIAN
It’s not funny…

They all start to laugh, including Brian.

BRIAN
Yes it is…fuckin’ elephant was
destroyed!

ALLISON
You wanna know what I did to get in
here? Nothing…I didn’t have
anything better to do.

Everyone laughs.

ALLISON
You’re laughing at me…

ANDREW
No!

Allison starts to laugh too.

ALLISON
Yeah you are!
CUT TO:

31. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Later.

We see Brian putting a record on and then music starts.

We see them all dancing. This goes on for the duration
of the song.
CUT TO:

32. INT. HEATING DUCT – DAY

We see Bender crawling back through the heating duct.
CUT TO:

33. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Andrew, Allison, Claire and Brian are sitting, in that
order on the railing.

CLAIRE
Brian?

BRIAN
Yeah?

CLAIRE
Are you gonna write your paper?

BRIAN
Yeah, why?

CLAIRE
Well, it’s kinda a waste for all of
us to write our paper, don’t you
think?

BRIAN
Oh, but that’s what Vernon wants us
to do…

CLAIRE
True, but I think we’d all kinda
say the same thing.

BRIAN
You just don’t want to write your
paper…Right?

CLAIRE
True, but, you’re the smartest,
right?

BRIAN
(with pride)
Oh, well…

CLAIRE
We trust you…

Brian glances over at Allison and Andrew who nod in
approval.

ANDREW
Yeah…

BRIAN
All right, I’ll do it…

CLAIRE
Great…

Claire looks at Allison who looks back.

CLAIRE
(to Allison)
Come on…

ALLISON
Where’re we going?

CLAIRE
Come on!

We see Claire putting eye make-up on Allison.

CLAIRE
Don’t be afraid.

ALLISON
Don’t stick that in my eye!

CLAIRE
I’m not sticking it, just close…
just go like that…

Claire closes her eyes. Allison mimics her.

CLAIRE
Good…

Claire puts the make-up on her and Allison squeals.

CLAIRE
You know you really do look a lot
better without all that black shit
on your eyes…

ALLISON
Hey…I like that black shit…

CLAIRE
This looks a lot better…look up.

We see Brian thinking about what he’s going to write.

We see Andrew just thinking.

We see Allison and Claire again. Claire is still
putting make-up on Allison.

ALLISON
Please, why’re you being so nice to
me?

CLAIRE
‘Cause you’re letting me.

We see Brian begin to write.

We see Andrew, still deep in thought.
CUT TO:

34. INT. CLOSET – DAY

We see Bender, in the closet once again. Claire opens
the door and enters.

BENDER
You lost?

Claire stares at him.

Bender smiles.

Claire smiles.
CUT TO:

35. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

Brian is busily preparing the essay.

Andrew looks up and sees the newly made over Allison
and is in awe.

Allison walks towards him and stops when she notices
Brian staring at her with his mouth open.

She glares at him.

BRIAN
Cool!

ALLISON
(smiling)
Thank you!
CUT TO:

36. INT. CLOSET – DAY

Claire kisses Bender, then she breaks the kiss.

BENDER
Why’d you do that?

CLAIRE
‘Cause I knew you wouldn’t.

BENDER
You know how you said before, how
your parents used you to get back
at each other…wouldn’t I be
outstanding in that capacity?

CLAIRE
Were you really disgusted about
what I did with my lipstick?

BENDER
Truth?

CLAIRE
Truth…

Bender nods and speaks at the same time.

BENDER
No…
CUT TO:

37. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

We see Brian lift up his paper and kiss it.

We see Andrew and Allison.

ANDREW
What happened to you?

ALLISON
Why? Claire did it! What’s wrong?

ANDREW
Nothing’s wrong, it’s just so
different. I can see your face.

ALLISON
Is that good or bad?

ANDREW
(laughing)
It’s good!

Allison smiles.

We see Brian laugh and give himself a congratulatory
punch in the arm.
CUT TO:

38. INT. HALLWAY – DAY

The five are walking down the hall where they are met
by Carl, sweeping up. Brian nods at him.

CARL
See ya Brian…

BRIAN
Hey Carl…

BENDER
(to Carl)
See you next Saturday…

CARL
You bet!
CUT TO:

39. EXT. PARKING LOT – DAY

Brian gets into his dad’s car and leaves.
Andrew and Allison kiss, Allison rips a patch off
Andrew’s jacket and gets into the car.

Andrew’s dad arrives and looks at him, then at Allison.

Andrew gets into the car and they drive off.

We see Claire take out one of her diamond earrings
and put it into Benders hand. They kiss and she gets
into her car. She leaves.

We see Bender put the earring in his ear.
CUT TO:

40. INT. LIBRARY – DAY

We see Vernon pick up Brian’s essay and begin to read.

BRIAN (VO)
Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact
that we had to sacrifice a whole
Saturday in detention for whatever
it was we did wrong. But we think
you’re crazy to make an essay
telling you who we think we are.
You see us as you want to see us…
In the simplest terms, in the most
convenient definitions.
CUT TO:

41. EXT. FOOTBALL FIELD – DAY

We see Bender walking towards us as Brian’s monologue
continues.[amazonjs asin=”B004JXXIBC” locale=”JP” title=”ブレックファスト・クラブ 【Blu-ray ベスト・ライブラリー】”]
