FREAKS AND GEEKS 2.1-THE HOMECOMING

FADE IN:

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.

HOWARD (OS)

You know what they do Jean? They

take LSD!It stays in your body for

years, that stuff goes straight to

your spine!

JEANE (OS)

(doubtful)

Oh..Linsday wouldn't do that!

CUT TO

INT. WEIR KITCHEN - NIGHT

Jeane is sitting at the kitchen table looking up at Howard,

who is pacing back and forth, ranting and raving

HOWARD

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

face her)

What if shes pregnent?

JEANE

(puzzled)

I really don't think so!

HOWARD

Jeane, wake up. She ditched this

acidemdic summit to go follow a

rock and roll band with a bunch of

hippies!

HOWARD

I'll tell ya what we'll do-

JEANE

(standing up)

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

HOWARD (OS)

Military school!

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.

LINDSAY

(wispering)

Kim GO AWAY!

KIM

(moving closer so

she is right at

the window, and

waving)

Lindsay! I found Rain! Isn't it

cool?

Rain waves. She is holding a goldfish in a plastic baggie

and holds it up to lindsay as Kim points to it.

LINDSAY

(shaking head

violently and

crossing the room

to the window and

opening it)

Kim, no- my parents

KIM

I thought you don't care about

that anymore??

LINDSAY

(looking behind

her at the door,

starting to panic)

Well

(frustrated)

I'm home now, it's different now,

(MORE)

LINDSAY (cont'd)

I don't know

KIM

(pissed)

Whatever. You're going to go back

to being lame now?

(crosses her arms)

LINDSAY

No! I'm not lame!

(looks behind her

at the door again)

Rain starts to giggle for no reason

LINDSAY

(looks behind her

again)

You gotta go Kim!

KIM

Fine

(She turns around

and walks away)

Rain follows Kim as Lindsay shuts the window. Lindsay puts

her hand up to semi wave

HOWARD (OS)

Lindsay?

Lindsay spins around to face the door and fakes a smile as

the door opens. Her dad is standing there looking stern

LINDSAY

(walking towards

him)

Dad. Hey

Dad looks around the room, expecting to see something shady.

His eyes land on the open math book.

HOWARD

Studying?

LINDSAY

(sitting down on

the floor and

picking up the

book)

Yeah, I guess

4.

HOWARD

School doesn't start for a few

days?

LINDSAY

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

yesterday afternoon.

Dad raises his eyebrows

LINDSAY

(rushing now,

trying to sound

ethusistic)

I just thought I would get a head

start, you know, on my studies.

College applications are in a few

months.

HOWARD

(pausing)

Well, um- okay that sounds good

(hardening)

But major changes are going to

have to be made this year. You are

going to have to earn our trust

all over again

LINDSAY

(Looking down at

book)

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.

No- he got fired

BILL

NEIL

I don't know! He was letting my

cousin into the R rated movies!

(pauses)

That could have been us!

SAM

What about your dad?

Sam jumps up on the counter and pulls fruit rollup box out

of the cuppard

NEIL

(looking annoyed)

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

BILL

My mom says, that everyone is

naked in Porkys

NEIL

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

along?

SAM

(thinking)

We need to see that movie!

NEIL

New year, new start. I can go back

the closet for 10 minutes with

Vicki Applebee, Niel?

NEIL

(snorts)

BILL

fruit roll up)

NEIL

(rolls his eyes)

I know! I know, you kissed!

SAM

(long pause)

We could go see The Warth of Khan

again?

NEIL

(In Shatner

impression)

"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

nothing."

they all laugh

SAM

"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.

is holding drumsticks, he has a headphones on his neck

blasting a terrible disco song. He is trying to drum alomg

on his lap- it's impossible

KEN

(glaring at Nick,

who is in his own

world)

You know, at first I thought you

So?

DANIEL

So are you getting laid?

NICK

DANIEL

girls sluts?

NICK

no. I'm JUST saying it's nice, its

kind of romantic

8.

KEN

(sarcastic)

Was it a hard adjustment when you

Daniel laughs

NICK

At least I'm in a real

relationship! Its not having about

sex all the time

DANIEL

KEN

Speaking of doing it all the

time-I hear Kim back. Stroker saw

her at some party with those

hippies

DANIEL

(looks thoughtful

for a second

beofore blowing

it off)

Whatever, I'm over that

As he says this, a girl walks out of the house

KEN

(sarcastic)

Oh great

She walks towards them. She is a little older, like 19-20,

long curly hair, huge boobs, wearing a low cut shirt and

tight jeans. almost as tall as Daniel. She looks irritated

DANIEL

Shut up!

CARLA

(stops in front of

daniel and

crosses her arms)

When are we leaving? Juan is

DANIEL

hanging out

9.

CARLA

If we don't go, he will have

someone else do it.

DANIEL

CARLA

He has to be at work in two hours

DANIEL

(annoyed)

will you just relax?

CARLA

Fine! You don't care? I just go

and tell him you aren't interested

(she turns to walk

back into the

house)

DANIEL

(Grabs her arm and

pulls her in)

Wait!

Carla struggles a little pulling away as Daniel pulls her in

CARLA

(gives in and

wraps her arms

around Daniel)

what?

DANIEL

(leaning in to

kiss her)

CARLA

(kidding)

I don't know- I might be busy..

DANIEL

from hers)

Busy gettin busy

(kisses her)

NICK

(standing up)

I gotta meet Sarah

Ken stands up too

CARLA

break apart)

KEN

CARLA

Daniel didn't tell you? He is

working for my brother now.

NICK

(surprised)

You are?

CARLA

Yeah. Full time. He isn't going

back to school. Now he can be with

me all the time. And Juan will

hook him up.

KEN

(indifferent)

NICK

(still shocked)

Seriously man? No school?

DANIEL

(looks confident)

no school. I'm going to make all

this cash man! What do I need

school for?

KEN (OS)

Nick! Lets go

You hear a car start. Nick stares at Daniel and Carla for a

moment and then runs to the car. Daniel sits on the hood of

his car, carla moves bt his knees as lights a cig and Ken's

car peels off.

INT. WEIR KITCHEN - NIGHT

Family is at the dinner table

11.

JEANE

Sam honey, are you excited for

school tomorrow?

SAM

Excited? No

HOWARD

Well why not?

SAM

(embarrased)

I don't know. All summer I get to

hang out with whoever I want. Neil

and Bill and stuff. Now I have to

deal with everyone else. Teachers,

the jocks, Alan. I'm just a geek

to them.

JEANE

Oh honey, your not a geek!

LINDSAY

You know Sam, you look older. I

noticed it when I. When I

yours!

LINDSAY

Dad

JEANE

(speaking at the

same time as

lindsay)

Howard- Lindsay needs social

interaction-

HOWARD

Millie is welcome to come over,

shes a positive influcne.

SAM

Yeah, like when her dog got hit by

a car she she decided to became a

freak for a day?

LINDSAY

She didn't "become" a freak

JEANE

(confused)

Those kids who threw an egg at you

last Halloween? They are the

freaks?

Lindsay is looking horrifed and shooting Sam dirty looks

SAM

Lindsay friends

LINDSAY

SAM

(stuttering now)

HOWARD

(To Lindsay, whos

defeat)

You are to come right home!

13.

INT. SCHOOL - DAY

Bill, Sam, and Niel are all walking down the hallway

talking. Cindy Sanders is talking to the cheerleaders, they

are all in uniform.

NEIL

(leaning in and

wispering)

I wonder if Cindy will talk to you

Sam?

SAM

(looking scared to

approach her)

I don't know, she was pretty

angry, maybe I made a mistake...

NEIL

Did you ever think you would break

up with a cheerleader- YOU?

BILL

Yeah Sam she is cute, but she

thought "The Jerk" was stupid

NEIL

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

CINDY

Hi Sam!

SAM

(walks up to talk

to her, unsure)

Hi Cindy

CINDY

How was your summer?

SAM

(more confident

now)

It's was ok. How was yours?

CINDY

It was OK. I had to go to

cheerleading camp.

14.

SAM

Cheer leading camp?

CINDY

It's not fun, they make you cheer

for like eight hours a day!

SAM

Eight hours?

(laughs)

CINDY

You look different Sam-

SAM

(a littel

surprised)

I do? How?

CINDY

I don't know- taller?

The schoolbell rings. Neil and Bill take off as well as

Cindy's friends.

SAM

I should- I should go

CINDY

Yeah- yes, bye!

Cindy runs away and Sam is left in an empty hallway. Kim

Kelly rounds the corner with Rain and spots Sam standing

there. He looks starteled

KIM

(agressivly)

Hey! Lindsays brother- Get to

class

(she lightly

pushes him)

He shakes her off

SAM

(strongly)

My name is Sam, you know that Kim.

They all start to walk down the hallway together

KIM

(annoyed)

Oh yeah- she back.. to being a

her room or something.

RAIN

Thats way harsh

(trying to sound

causal)

KIM

(surpised)

he dropped out? Oh wow hes a

winner now. I'm so glad thats

NICK

Well we thought maybe you could

KIM

(laughing)

loser, he should be. I've been

saying this all along

Mr. Tychoski rounds the corner and stalkes towards them

TOWSHSKY

(teacherly)

Hey- What are you doing

INT. LUNCHROOM - DAY

Geeks are sitting with Harris and Gorden at lunch table

BILL

So you have seen it?

HARRIS

Oh yes, I've seen it. The story

isn't anything to be excited

about, but it was funny, the

performances were great

GORDEN

I saw it too, my dad took me

SAM

Its not fair!

GORDEN

Say Harris, is Mike Hunt here?

18.

Sam, Neil, and Bill look confused

HARRIS

(laughs)

Mike Hunt? Has anyone seen Mike

Hunt?

They both laugh for a few more seconds

BILL

Who is Mike Hunt? Does he go to

this school?

Harris and Gorden start laughing all over again

SAM

I think he is in my math class...

NEIL

I'm in your math class, we don't

have a Mike Hunt.

Harris and Gorden laughs reach a high again

SAM

(exsasperted)

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

HARRIS

(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

stops

NEIL

We are going to see that movie.

Tomorrow. After school. I haven't

figured out a plan yet, but I

will.

(he leans in)

OK?

SAM

But how are we going to get in,

we're 15?

19.

NEIL

I just said I will think of

something. I always do.

BILL

Not something that works

NEIL

(confident)

Well this WILL work!Come on! Do

you want to see this movie or not!

Tomorrow, don't tell your mom

Bill-

BILL

NEIL

Tomorrow. Agreed?

Bill nods

SAM

Agreed

LINDSAY IN SITTING

BY HERSELF A FEW

TABLE AWAY

Millie walks up to her table and sits down

MILLE

Hey Lindsay

LINDSAY

Oh hey Millie

MILLE

Are you ok?

LINDSAY

Yeah I'm fine

MILLE

My mom told me what happend

LINDSAY

What?

20.

MILLE

(lowering her

voice)

How you ditched the program at U

of M to go watch that band.

LINDSAY

(looking down)

Oh.

MILLE

Some people are saying...

(she stops)

LINDSAY

(looks up suddenly)

What? what are they saying

MILLE

They are saying your are

(wispers something

so quiet it's

unaudioable)

LINDSAY

What?

MILLE

(again speaks to

quietly)

LINDSAY

(kind of laughing

now)

Mille, I can't hear you

MILLE

(Loud now)

Are you having a baby?

Sevreal people at the table nearby hear and stare and

Lindsay grabs Milles arm and then lean into the table

together

LINDSAY

SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Millie!!!

MILLE

(eyes wide with

fear)

Are you?

21.

LINDSAY

(unable to supress

a laugh now)

No Mille, I'm not pregnet

MILLE

(leans back,

relaved)

oh

LINDSAY

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?

MILLE

(curious)

Well, what did you do there?

LINDSAY

(wistful)

It was so great. We listened to

the music, met so many people

(getting excited)

Kim and I hung out with this one

girl who had been to South America

and spent a night in the rain

forest!

Millie nods

LINDSAY

It really wasn't about drugs or

guys. They were there but it

wasn't really about any of that,

you know?

MILLE

What was it about?

LINDSAY

I was an adult. There were no

rules. We did whatever we wanted.

Millie nods again

LINDSAY

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!

22.

MILLE

My church sends missions to Africa

LINDSAY

(raising her voice)

EXACTLY!

MILLE

Thats what you want to do?

LINDSAY

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!

ROSSO (OS)

There she is!

Lindsay looks up and the exicted look drops off her face.

Mr. Rosso is standing in front of her

ROSSO

Hi Lindsay Hi Millie

MILLE

Hi Mr. Rosso

ROSSO

Mille do you mind if I steal

lindsay?

INT. ROSSOS OFFICE - DAY

rosso shuts the door to his office as lindsay sits down.

Rosso crosses the room and sits down on his desk

LINDSAY

I know what you are going to say

mr. Rosso

ROSSO

You do?

LINDSAY

You are going to ask me why I

threw my life away by not going to

the math program this summer.

(getting emotional)

(MORE)

23.

LINDSAY (cont'd)

You are going to ask me why I'm

runing my chances of getting into

a good college, tell me I should

re-join the mathletes, be a goody

two shoes mrs. perfect again.

(angry now)

Well thats not me. Does anyone

maybe think I don't WANT those

things???

ROSSO

Lindsay...

LINDSAY

I want to do good in school, I'm

still going to get all A's like I

always do- but why do

ROSSO

Lindsay

LINDSAY

(almost hysterial)

What?????

ROSSO

I want you to talk to Daniel

Desiro

LINDSAY

(offended and

confused)

What?

ROSSO

He dropped out of McKinley

LINDSAY

(in shock)

dropped out?

ROSSO

(getting off his

desk and walking

around to the

seat behind it)

Yes. He isn't coming back.

Lindsay is still speachless as Rosso sits down

24.

ROSSO

He only has 10 credits left- thats

4 classes. He just has to pass

four classes and then he can

graduate.

LINDSAY

Why do you think I can help

ROSSO

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

you can.

LINDSAY

Mr. Rosso I haven't seen Daniel

since school ended last summer.

ROSSO

Then pay him a visit.

(leaning forward)

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

someones life!

LINDSAY

(still not seeing

how she can help)

But-

ROSSO

Hey. It's just a suggestion. I

can't make you do it, it's not

required by "the school".

(makes air quotes)

the phone rings

ROSSO

Excuse me Lindsay

Mr. Rosso picks up the phone and starts talking. Lindsay

looks deep in thought

25.

INT. GYM - DAY

wrong and is about to walk away

VICKI

Hi Sam

SAM

Oh hi Vicki

VICKI

Are you here to watch Cindy?

SAM

Oh no- I was just walking by and

VICKI

down)

Stacey likes you. She asked me

about you yesterday. She thinks

you are cute.

SAM

(looking over at

Stacey again)

Me?

VICKI

Yes you!

CINDY

I told her what a sweet nice guy

you are and how you like those

movies and star wars and what that

other game you guys play? with the

dragons?

SAM

(horrifed)

Cindy? You told her all of that?

Now she is going to think I'm a

geek!

CINDY

No Sam, it made her like you more,

she said she likes "geeks"

He looks over at Stacey again, this time she waves, and he

kind of half raises his hand

VICKI

(giggling)

Do you like her?

SAM

(uncomfortable)

I don't know, I don't know her

CINDY

Well you guys could go on a date.

Or we could all hang out in a

group.

I don't know..

people? Did Vicki ask about me?

NEIL

(to Bill)

She didn't, right?

SAM

28.

NEIL

Shut up Bill, I talk to them all

the time. Sam, do you think this

girl is cute?

SAM

I don't know- I feel wierd, why

Isn't that werid

NEIL

Nick waves but stops as soon as Sarah notices

KIM

So? Hang out anyway

LINDSAY

I can't. I don't know if my

parents are ever going to forgive

me.

KIM

Lindsay, remember when those cute

twins wanted to make out and I

forgot which guy was mine and

kissed yours?

Lindsay laughs

KIM

See? We had the most amazing time.

And I know I can be a drag and

all, but I need you around.

(looking down and

kicking the

ground)

pretty soon Daniel will show up

and I don't know what will happen

LINDSAY

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

cut class or just hang out...

KIM

(annoyed but

kidding)

Are you breaking up with us?

LINDSAY

(rushing)

No! Kim thats not it-My parents

think I am throwing my life away.

(MORE)

30.

LINDSAY (cont'd)

I made too many mistakes, and bad

decisions. I should have gone to U

of M.

KIM

(pissed)

really? I was kidding. Thats why

you have been MIA all week? You

aren't hanging out anymore?

LINDSAY

I just can't right now

KIM

(backing away)

I can't belive you are doing this!

LINDSAY

(despreate)

I just need to focus on my school

work, not get into trouble

KIM

So thats what we are to you,

trouble?

They look at each other. Lindsay wants to refute what Kim

said, but she can't.

KIM

(more hurt then

mad now)

Wow. Okay. Well have fun sitting

all alone in your pedistal miss

goody two shoes

(turns around and

looks over her

shoulder)

See you around

LINDSAY

(feebly)

No wait!

Lindsay watches as Kim rejoins the group. Nick and Sarah

kiss and Linsday has tears in her eyes.

INT. SAMS ROOM - NIGHT

Bill is looking down at the phone book and Niel is on the

phone. Sam is looking at a comic book

31.

NEIL

(using a fake

older mans voice)

Yes, I would like to buy movie

tickets but I can't walk so I am

going to have my son pick them up

for me-

Sam looks up and shakes his head

BILL

(quietly to Niel)

This is stupid

NEIL

(waves them off)

Yes, but it isn't safe to ride in

my wheelchair at night, I don't

have any reflective devices on the

chair and

(pauses listening,

getting mad)

Fine! Since when does a

handicapped man not have the right

to see an R rated movie! What kind

of country is this?

(pauses listening

then hang up)

Ok that isn't going to work

SAM

(putting comic

down)

none of it is going to work! We

can't dress up as girls, or claim

to be blind-

BILL

A blind person can't SEE the movie

Niel

NEIL

that the whole point! We can't

even SEE the naked ladies so it

really isn't rated R for the blind

(looking at the

phone book and

starting to dial

another number.

Talking in the

same voice again)

Yes,

(coughing and

talking in a weak

(MORE)

32.

NEIL (cont'd)

voice)

I'm a terminal cancer pacient at

Sinai hospital and I had a

question for you

Neil continues talking

BILL

Gorden's dad is so cool, he took

him to the movies

SAM

My dad would never take me- he

thinks Dallas is to racey

BILL

Dallas rules. Hey aren't your

sisters friends older? Can't they

take us?

SAM

(uncomfortable)

Yeah. But they are all freaks. And

I don't think they are friends

anymore. Lindsay doesn't really

talk to anyone. Since she got

back a few weeks ago anyways.

NEIL

(hangs up phone)

Well, on to plan B

SAM

Whats plan B?

NEIL

Ok-

(other boys lean

in)

This is what my brother told me he

used to do. Just ask someone

outside to buy us the tickets.

Then we just walk in. No big deal.

BILL

like sneak in?

NEIL

no, we aren't sneaking in. We will

have tickets

Niel nods in excitement but Sam and Bill look nervous

33.

LINDSAY

DANIEL

DANIEL

(takes sip of beer)

I guess I wasn't the best at

She looks side ways at him in the silence

LINDSAY

You really aren't going back to

DANIEL

(not looking at

her)

Nope

LINDSAY

DANIEL

Yep

LINDSAY

You are ten credits short of

gradutation Daniel. You can do it,

DANIEL

(looking at her)

Lindsay I'm not like you. I can't

(looks away)

LINDSAY

(surpised)

Ha. Daniel, I am NOT who you think

DANIEL

(looking at her

again)

You are exactly who I think you

DANIEL

help pay for my dads medication,

buy grocries, maybe move out and

get my own place...

LINDSAY

Is it illegal?

DANIEL

What? What Juan is doing?

(brushes it off)

no way!

He takes another sip of beer

DANIEL

Just don't tell Kim about Carla

crazy man

(he smiles)

She could really do Kim some

damage

Lindsay looks at her watch.

He reverses down the street

LINDSAY STANDING AT

THE END OF HER

DRIVEWAY

Linsday looks up at her house and then down at her watch

again. She can't decide what to do. Suddenly she runs across

the street and up to Millies house and knocks on the door.

While she waits, she looks behind at her house. Millie opens

the door.

MILLE

LINDSAY

(walking into the

house)

LINDSAY

Why? You didn't have to lie, you

didn't say anything.

MILLE

(shakes head)

It doesn't matter, it wasn't

honest

LINDSAY

(getting worked up

again)

Do you want me to go tell them I

MILLE

(slides to the

Lindsay goes back to her book and studies for a few moments.

Goes to the bookcase to grab a book. On her nightstand is a

candid pic of all the main freaks. Linsday smiles at it, and

then brings the book back to the floor and opens it, but

glaces back at the photo again. She sighs and puts her head

down on the pile of books.

Hi Brain

(putting eyeliner

on)

What do you want? I thought you

couldn't be near me- I'm trouble

LINDSAY

Kim please

KIM

Forget it! I'm sick of all your

judging. If you think I'm such a

bad person, why did you hang out

with me in the first place?

LINDSAY

(sighs and leans

agaist the sink)

I'm not juding

54.

KIM

(looking at her)

Yes you are. I didn't FORCE you to

come with me this summer! You

wanted to go, remember?

LINDSAY

And I'm so glad I went

KIM

(annoyed)

What?

LINDSAY

Kim, I had so much fun with you. I

know we are different, and I care

about school and you care about

you know, other things, but your

my best friend

Kim freezes, she doesn't know what to do, she gets

uncomfortbale and starts playing with her hair

KIM

Shut up Linsday- Isn't that Jesus

freak your best friend?

LINDSAY

(looking in the

mirror at Kim)

No- I mean yes. I mean Millie is

my oldest friend. You are my best

friend.

KIM

(sad)

a best friend you are abandoning

LINDSAY

(pissed and

raising her voice)

Kim! You know, I'm such a good

friend to you!

You are mean to me, make fun of me

for being smart. YOU judge me Kim!

Did you ever think about that? I

can't do anything right as far as

you are concerned. And I have

never done anything to you- ever!

Kim stares at her

55.

KIM

(quieter)

You really think I'm your best

friend?

LINDSAY

(still yelling)

Yeah! And a crappy one! I mean

what about me? Why can't I hang

out with everyone AND get good

grades? I don't have to make a

choice. You are as bad as my

parents! You are forcing me to

choose!

They look at each other. Silence. Lindsay turns and walks

away. Kim looks thoughful,almost happy. Then pissed at

herself

KIM

(to herself)

Oh crap. I'm an idiot

(running out of

the bathroom,

calling after her)

Linsday, wait!

INT. CLASSROOM - DAY

proper equation here?

LINDSAY

(looks up,

startled)

Um, Ah

(she glances at

her notes)

Are we on number 4 or 5, I'm sorry

TOWSHSKY

Back in the swing of things Weir!

Lindsay looks temperatly happy but then looks back at her

books, dissapointed and bored.

INT. HALLWAY - DAY

Nick walks down the hallway looking into various classrooms

and stops when he reaches linsdays. He looks though the

small window as Towshsky drones on and wait for Lindsay to

notice him. Lindsay is distracted looking around the room.

Spots Millie and they smile at each other then looks

startled to see Nick looking at her. He makes a gesture with

his head like "come out here" and Lindsay doesn't hesitate

at all. As she raises her hand in the air, nick ducks down.
