FREAKS AND GEEKS 2.1-THE HOMECOMING
INT. LINDSAYS ROOM - NIGHT
Lindsay is sitting next to the bed, boucing a ball agaist
the wall while reading some kind of math book. She looks
angry and frustrated.
You know what they do Jean? They
take LSD!It stays in your body for
years, that stuff goes straight to
Oh..Linsday wouldn't do that!
INT. WEIR KITCHEN - NIGHT
Jeane is sitting at the kitchen table looking up at Howard,
who is pacing back and forth, ranting and raving
She didn't do a lot of things
before, Jean! She didn't hang out
with those burnout friends of
hers, she didn't lie to us! She
lied to us, Jeane!
(gasps, turning to
What if shes pregnent?
I really don't think so!
Jeane, wake up. She ditched this
acidemdic summit to go follow a
rock and roll band with a bunch of
I'll tell ya what we'll do-
She isn't pregnet. We can't
confine her to her room forever.
School is starting soon Howard, we
need to decide what to do
INT. LINDSAYS ROOM - NIGHT
Lindsay looks horrifed at hearing this and angerly throws
the ball at her nightstand knocking over a lamp. As she
stands up to put the lamp back, she sees someone at the
window and freezes. Kim Kelly is standing there gesturing
for Lindsay to come to the window. She is with a plain jane
type hippie girl. Lindsay grits her teeth.
Kim GO AWAY!
(moving closer so
she is right at
the window, and
Lindsay! I found Rain! Isn't it
Rain waves. She is holding a goldfish in a plastic baggie
and holds it up to lindsay as Kim points to it.
crossing the room
to the window and
Kim, no- my parents
I thought you don't care about
her at the door,
starting to panic)
I'm home now, it's different now,
I don't know
Whatever. You're going to go back
to being lame now?
(crosses her arms)
No! I'm not lame!
(looks behind her
at the door again)
Rain starts to giggle for no reason
(looks behind her
You gotta go Kim!
(She turns around
and walks away)
Rain follows Kim as Lindsay shuts the window. Lindsay puts
her hand up to semi wave
Lindsay spins around to face the door and fakes a smile as
the door opens. Her dad is standing there looking stern
Dad looks around the room, expecting to see something shady.
His eyes land on the open math book.
(sitting down on
the floor and
picking up the
Yeah, I guess
School doesn't start for a few
Well yeah, but I know what book
I'll be using this year. I know
I'm not sopposed to leave the
house but I went to the library
Dad raises his eyebrows
trying to sound
I just thought I would get a head
start, you know, on my studies.
College applications are in a few
Well, um- okay that sounds good
But major changes are going to
have to be made this year. You are
going to have to earn our trust
all over again
(Looking down at
OK dad, I understand
Dad stares at her for a few seconds and then shuts the door.
Lindsay continues looking at the book for a beat and then
exhales and lays her head back on the bed as if she was
holding something back the whole time.
INT. WEIR KITCHEN - DAY
Neil, Bill, and Sam come in the back door, they are talking
already as the scene begins
Doesn't your cousins friend work
at the movie theather?
No- he got fired
I don't know! He was letting my
cousin into the R rated movies!
That could have been us!
What about your dad?
Sam jumps up on the counter and pulls fruit rollup box out
of the cuppard
My mom told him
(in a whiny voice)
"Don't you dare take him to see
that dirty movie!"
Sam hands fruit roll ups to Neil and Bill
My mom says, that everyone is
naked in Porkys
Thats exactly WHY we have to see
it. Do you realize when we go back
to school thats all anyone is
going to be talking about? And
what are we going to do? just nod
We need to see that movie!
New year, new start. I can go back
to school the guy who is
experinced, knows things-
Except you don't know anything!
I do! I've seen stuff
You haven't done stuff..
(turning to Bill)
What? and you are mr.slick?
What do you think he was doing in
the closet for 10 minutes with
Vicki Applebee, Niel?
(mouth full of
fruit roll up)
(rolls his eyes)
I know! I know, you kissed!
We could go see The Warth of Khan
"I haven't faced death. I've
cheated death. I've tricked my way
out of death and patted myself on
the back for my ingenuity. I know
they all laugh
"You proceed from a false
assumption. I am a Vulcan. I have
no ego to bruise."
They are all laughing, Bill with food in his mouth, Sam
throws his uneaten fruit roll up at Neil who ducks and it
hits Bill square in the head.

She walks towards them. She is a little older, like 19-20,
long curly hair, huge boobs, wearing a low cut shirt and

car peels off.

I wonder if Cindy will talk to you
(looking scared to
I don't know, she was pretty
angry, maybe I made a mistake...
Did you ever think you would break
up with a cheerleader- YOU?
Yeah Sam she is cute, but she
thought "The Jerk" was stupid
What kind of person thinks that?
They are almost at where Cindy is standing talking, they all
slows down and Cindy turns to face them
(walks up to talk
to her, unsure)
How was your summer?
It's was ok. How was yours?
It was OK. I had to go to
Cheer leading camp?

You look different Sam-

I don't know- taller?
The schoolbell rings. Neil and Bill take off as well as
I should- I should go
Yeah- yes, bye!

They all start to walk down the hallway together
Oh yeah- she back.. to being a

stupid car- he needs to give it up
no, hes not coming back- ever.

winner now. I'm so glad thats
Well we thought maybe you could

Mr. Tychoski rounds the corner and stalkes towards them
Hey- What are you doing
everyone just stares at him
Get to class!
Everyone goes in a sepreate direction, Kim looking back at
nick lookling thoughful
INT. LUNCHROOM - DAY
Geeks are sitting with Harris and Gorden at lunch table
So you have seen it?
Oh yes, I've seen it. The story
isn't anything to be excited
about, but it was funny, the
performances were great
I saw it too, my dad took me
Its not fair!
Say Harris, is Mike Hunt here?
Sam, Neil, and Bill look confused
Mike Hunt? Has anyone seen Mike
They both laugh for a few more seconds
Who is Mike Hunt? Does he go to
Harris and Gorden start laughing all over again
I think he is in my math class...
I'm in your math class, we don't
have a Mike Hunt.
Harris and Gorden laughs reach a high again
What? Why are you guys laughing?
He looks around. A bunch of jocks are standing near a table
laughing, one guy is re-inacting a scene from the movie
(calming down now)
It's from the movie
Neil looks back from across the room at the jocks and slams
his fist on the table so everyone is startled. All laughter
We are going to see that movie.
Tomorrow. After school. I haven't
figured out a plan yet, but I
(he leans in)
But how are we going to get in,
I just said I will think of
something. I always do.
Not something that works
Well this WILL work!Come on! Do

(unable to supress
a laugh now)
No Mille, I'm not pregnet
God, Millie who do you think I
am? I just went to a couple of
concerts. Why is everyone making
this such a big deal?
Well, what did you do there?
It was so great. We listened to
the music, met so many people
Kim and I hung out with this one
girl who had been to South America
and spent a night in the rain
It really wasn't about drugs or
guys. They were there but it
wasn't really about any of that,
What was it about?
I was an adult. There were no
rules. We did whatever we wanted.
Millie nods again
I realized- Maybe I don't want to
go to college. Maybe I want to
help people in a 3rd world
countries, maybe I want to take
dance classes or go to Europe!
My church sends missions to Africa
(raising her voice)
Thats what you want to do?
Yes! I mean no. What I mean is-
why do my parents and teachers
think everyone must have perfect
grades and never drink or smoke?
Just bc I don't go to the math
program or I'm friends with Kim
Kelly doesn't mean my life will
turn out to be a disaster!
There she is!
Lindsay looks up and the exicted look drops off her face.
Mr. Rosso is standing in front of her

Rosso crosses the room and sits down on his desk

You are going to ask me why I

He dropped out of McKinley

Yes. He isn't coming back.
Lindsay is still speachless as Rosso sits down
He only has 10 credits left- thats
4 classes. He just has to pass
four classes and then he can
Why do you think I can help
Because you are Daniel's friend.
He is your pal, your buddy,
amigio. And I know you care about
him. You can help Lindsay I know
Mr. Rosso I haven't seen Daniel
since school ended last summer.
Then pay him a visit.
Lindsay. Both you and I know
Daniel is not dumb. But walking
away from a highschool degree ten
credits short is not very smart.
He will listen to you. He trusts
you. I know it Linsday. You have a
chance to make a difference in

how she can help)
Hey. It's just a suggestion. I
can't make you do it, it's not

Mr. Rosso picks up the phone and starts talking. Lindsay
looks deep in thought

Well not really. Vicki is the one
who told me
Sam, are you a friends with these
people? Did Vicki ask about me?
She didn't, right?
no! wait listen- what do I do. I
think I still like Cindy. If I go
out with this stacey girl, it will
ruin my chances forever!
So there are two cheerleaders who
like you. One who kissed me, and
how many Neil has spoken to?
Shut up Bill, I talk to them all
the time. Sam, do you think this
girl is cute?
I don't know- I feel wierd, why
does she like me? Cindy told her
how many times I saw star wars,
it's kind of embarrasing
Oh forget it, problem solved
no! Cindy said she liked that!
Isn't that werid
Sam, all the cheerleaders like
you, are you becoming popular?
Yeah just don't forget the little
people when you hit it big
(being modest but
a little proud

After school. Freaks under the bleachers. Kim is talking to
Amy and they are laughing Sarah and Nick are holding hands,

Kim sees her do this and catches up to her.
Hi Kim- listen I'm sorry about the

Yeah, and she is lame-o man. He
follows her around like a little
puppy. He is seriously whipped
I want to hang out, but I'm still
Nick waves but stops as soon as Sarah notices
So? Hang out anyway
I can't. I don't know if my
parents are ever going to forgive
Lindsay, remember when those cute
twins wanted to make out and I
forgot which guy was mine and
See? We had the most amazing time.
And I know I can be a drag and
all, but I need you around.

Kim, I'm sorry, you gotta
understand, I have to go home and
study. I can't goof off and waste
time like this anymore. I can't

Are you breaking up with us?
No! Kim thats not it-My parents

I made too many mistakes, and bad
decisions. I should have gone to U

I just can't right now
I can't belive you are doing this!
I just need to focus on my school

said, but she can't.
(more hurt then
Wow. Okay. Well have fun sitting
all alone in your pedistal miss
