*Real quick, not like it TRULY matters but I think the best way to read this story is in the 1/2 format at the top so it's about the size of a book when you look at it on the screen. If you don't know what I'm talking about, there's a few buttons above the chapter selection area: full, 3/4 & 1/2. Click 1/2 as that is how I suggest you read this story and the rest of the chapters :)*

110 - This is Halloween (Part 2)
EXT. BURBANK INTERSECTION - NIGHT
GOD'S EYE VIEW - - we twirl down on the scene. The bottom of the car, now pointed towards the sky, is in flames and it spreads across at a rapid rate.
IN THE CAR, Roy is awake, upside down and struggling to get out of his seat belt. He stops for a moment, trying to relax so he can think for just a moment. He looks down below at the broken glass - - he grabs a shard and takes it to the belt, cutting it. His hand begins to bleed from the sides of the sharp glass - - THE BELT SNAPS. He lands on his back in the glass - -
OWWWWWW, didn't think that one through...
He gets up and immediately starts cutting at Robbie's belt, trying to come into contact with his skin.
It cuts him free and he falls onto Roy. Roy grabs him, PULLING HIM OUT and into the street, taking him far from the van. ROY RUNS BACK IN, this time going for Charlie. JENNY'S HEAD moves. She's completely disoriented.
Jenny! Don't panic!
What happened? Where are we?
Just hold on!
Is that smoke?
Just another second!
ROY CUTS CHARLIE LOOSE, dragging him outside. We stay on Jenny, realizing the situation as it's happening. She touches her shoulder and looks at her hand - - blood. SHE BEGINS SCREAMING. Roy rushes back over.
OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD, GET ME THE FUCK
OUT OF HERE, ROY!
Roy does his best, cutting at her belt. It doesn't help that she's squirming.
Jenny! I need you to calm down for
just second, okay? I need to cut your
belt then get to your brother, okay?
Jenny toughens up, biting her lower lip and holds still. Roy CUTS HER FREE, she drops out and he pulls her out next to a now awakening Robbie and Charlie.
Charlie looks into the street... he nudges Robbie. Robbie's jaw shivers and he jumps up, SPRINTING TO HER. Sirens can be heard in the background now. The Gas Attendant from the station runs out.
You guys alright? I called emergency.
Robbie keeps running, ignoring him and kneels down to Niley's aid. She appears lifeless. Robbie's not a doctor but he checks her pulse in her neck.
Charlie, I can't feel anything!
Charlie runs over, seeing if he can help. He kneels down as well, checking her pulse.
She's breathing. Here.
Charlie moves Robbie's hand to where Niley's pulse should be on her neck.
You feel it, right?
Robbie, tears in his eyes, nods.
I'm gonna go help Roy now, okay?
Roy is still in the front seat, Jenny watching. Charlie runs up and bends down, looking inside.
His stomach is in the way of the belt!
Shit... Roy, just get out, that fire's
I'm not leaving him here!
The ambulance is on the way, c'mon!
NO! I'm gonna have to... cut through his
stomach if I'm gonna get him down.
That's fucking crazy, man, don't you
hear yourself? Help is ON THE WAY, you
don't have to do this!
BOOM! A FLAME ERUPTS FROM UP TOP, startling Charlie.
Roy realizes that Benny is turning purple.
Charlie, he's gonna die, he can't breathe!
(looking back at the other car)
I don't think the other person is alive.
(back to the van)
Roy, I really appreciate what you're doing
for my brother but if you don't get out,
you're going to die too!
I'm not letting him die! He didn't even
wanna be here!
CHARLIE JUMPS IN, GRABBING ROY'S LEG, PULLING HIM OUT. Roy tries to hang on to anything, but it doesn't work.
NO! I CAN SAVE HIM!
The flames reach inside the interior. THE FIRETRUCK IS JUST DOWN THE STREET, LESS THAN TWO STREETS AWAY.
Look, see, see?
They won't make it in time!
ROY BREAKS CHARLIE'S GRIP, RUNNING BACK IN. He ducks down, THE FLAMES NOW JUST UNDER BENNY'S FEET.
Oh my God...
BENNY WAKES UP, SCREAMING. Roy falls back, completely in shock. Benny realizes - - HIS FEET ARE ON FIRE.
HELP ME! HELP ME!
I got you, I'm right here, I'm right here!
THE FIRE TRUCK PARKS and two fire fighters jump down.
(to Jenny and Charlie)
STAND BACK! It's GONNA BLOW!
Don't let me die!
Oh my God...
The fire slowly rises... Roy looks up at the fire around him... and looks back up at Benny...
Benny! Look at me! Look at me!
We're not gonna make it!
... but you won't be alone.
They look each other in the eyes a bit longer. This actually comforts Benny... THE VAN EXPLODES. The firefighters PUSH JENNY AND CHARLIE OUT OF THE WAY, DEBRIS FLYING EVERYWHERE. Robbie flinches back, watching while cradling Niley in his arms. THE FLAMES SHOOT UP INTO THE SKY. He covers her head as metal CRASHES DOWN pass them.
Charlie's eyes widen... Jenny can't even think of the words to say. The firefighter pushes them back to the safety behind the truck as the other fighters grab the hoses, running to the flaming van.
BENNY! Oh my God, ROY!
Charlie grabs Jenny, holding her in his arms and lets her cry into his shoulder.
Jenny's head JUMPS UP. They look closer... ROY HAS BENNY IN HIS ARMS in front of the van - - they fell out the front window. Benny's back is smoking from flames but it extinguished from the impact on the ground. Jenny runs over and the firefighter stops her.
Wait here, wait here!
Jenny holds her face in relief, Charlie resting his hands on her shoulder.
Oh my God!
Jenny HUGS Charlie and he holds her back - - he's relieved they're okay.
INT. WOODSBORO GYMNASIUM - NIGHT
"Barbara Ann" by The Beach Boys BURSTS ONTO the speakers. The students swing dance on the dance floor - - even Jill is having a good time dancing with Kirby and Stephie. Prichard makes his way to the stage, mic in his hands. He claps the song out as does the rest of the audience as they bring their attention towards him.
And now, ladies and gentleman, I have the
results from the Annual Woodsboro Festival
Halloween Costume Contest!
They crowd applauds again. Olivia looks over at Jill and back up at the stage.
And the third place winner is... Kirby Reed
for "Creepy Asian Girl!"
Kirby rolls her eyes and makes her to the stage, collecting the crappy trophy. Prichard touches her hand as he gives it to her. She pulls away and holds the trophy, giving a fake smile. Kirby then decides to grab the mic from Prichard.
And for the record, her name is Samara. And
she's actually not Asian since I'm representing
the American remake... not racist or anything,
Prichard takes the mic back and he readies the second card.
(clears his throat)
Okay... and second place winner goes to...
Will Scanton as Jack Skellington!
Will makes his way to the stage and collects the trophy. He appears to be emotionless about it in typical Will form.
You're still a douchebag who's never heard
of Nightmare on Elm Street and you don't get
any respect from me.
And last but not least, the GRAND PRIZE
winner of the costume contest... OLIVIA
MORRIS as "bloody Ghostface victim!"
Olivia acts surprised, taking in all the "congratulations" as she makes her way to the stage. Jill watches, ready to beat the crap out of her if she could. Olivia steals the mic from Prichard.
Correction, Prichard: not only am I a bloody
Ghostface victim, I am THE number one Ghostface
victim. In fact, one of Woodsboro High's own
student body is related to this girl. Not
many of you probably know but the FAMOUS Sidney
Prescott's cousin is our own, JILL ROBERTS!
Give her a hand!
Spotlight shines on Jill as everyone turns towards her with a few gasps and "oooh, I didn't know that"'s. They all start a clap and Jill grits her teeth. Olivia smiles and waves.
Thank you, Jill... for... INSPIRING me.
Jill runs out of the gymnasium, humiliated and crying. Kirby watches her go and drops the trophy on stage, running after her. Cory feels he must take part in her healing as well.
EXT. WOODSBORO HIGH GYMNASIUM - CONTINUOUS
Jill bursts through the door, nearly throwing up from the embarrassment. She leans against the wall, coughing and leaning over. Kirby exits and touches Jill shoulder, trying to comfort her. JILL PUSHES KIRBY BACK VIOLENTLY.
Whoa! Jill, it's me!
Just don't touch me! Don't touch me, please!
Cory comes outside and Kirby notices he's coming, acting fast she rushes to him, grabbing him by his shoulder.
Hey Cory, come with me, okay?
Is she okay?
She's fine. C'mon.
Kirby escorts Cory back inside, trying to be polite. Jill leans against the wall, sliding down. Tears fill her eyes - - completely distraught. She softly thuds the back of her head against the brick wall. HER PHONE RINGS. She answers.
INT. HOSPITAL HALLS - NIGHT
Charlie, Robbie & Roy all sit down in chairs next to each other, all looking blankly on at the wall. Roy starts to chuckle. Charlie and Robbie slowly turn their head to him.
I'm sorry, I just thought of something funny.
What could possibly be funny in this moment?
... we were on the way to where the original
Halloween was filmed... and now we're in a
hospital... where Halloween 2 takes place.
We skipped an entire movie.
... that's not funny.
Charlie chuckles as well.
That's funny to you?
I'm gonna go check on Niley, Jenny and Benny
while you two chuckleheads sit here and laugh
about the ironies of where movies were filmed!
Robbie gets up, walking down the hall.
I wonder if this was one of the hospitals
they used to film in.
I know, right? We should Google it when we
get home. It probably is, man.
Jill and Kirby burst through the door, rushing towards them.
Oh my God, where's Niley?
She should just about be getting out of surgery.
She's in SURGERY?
Yeah, on her head. Apparently she flew out of
van when the other crashed into it.
Oh my God, is she going to be okay?
They seem to think so. Robbie's freaking out.
Poor guy. What about Benny?
Burns on his back but with some skin therapy,
he'll be back on the street in no time. And
Jenny's just getting some shards of metal out
of her arm, getting tested for tetanus and
all that jazz.
So everybody is fine and accounted for except
Hey, Niley is going to be just fine, okay?
We gotta think positive. The more positive
energy we send her way, the better she'll be.
What about the other guy?
... he didn't make it. Drunk driving, apparently.
Went through the red light.
His name was Eddie Prinze.
Little brother of Tom Prinze... Dewey's
original replacement in Stab 3 before Schwimmer
came back since he, well, was murdered.
Jesus. That's - -
Robbie comes back down the hall, surgeon with him. The surgeon then turns around, heading back down the hall. Robbie looks relieved.
She's fine. The surgery went well. It was
a minor skull fracture but she's resting for
now so we have to wait until she wakes up
before we see her which could be hours from now.
(leans against the wall)
Well I'm gonna get out of here.
Are you serious?
I saved a burning man out of a burning
vehicle, got cut up by glass and had to
get my hands stitched. I think I deserve
some nice sleep in a comfy bed. I'll be
back in the morning.
Roy gets up, hugging Kirby and Jill then leaves. Kirby takes his spot and sits down. Robbie leans against the wall, crossing his arms. There's a long pause of quiet between them... Kirby smiles.
You guys are in a hospital. That's the
location of the second movie...
Robbie finds the humor in this now and starts to laugh while the rest join in.
TIME LAPSE - - the gang, now including Jenny all sit together on the benches, waiting for any news. Hours go by, day comes and then finally, a doctor approaches them.
INT. NILEY'S ROOM - CONTINUOUS
Robbie enters first, Kirby and Jill following behind while Charlie is last. Jenny waits outside, talking to a nurse. Niley seems disoriented - - a bandage is wrapped tightly around her head... wait...
They cut my hair...
(like it's the saddest thing ever)
That's okay. I still think you're beautiful.
Niley flinches back, "what?" Kirby kneels down as Jill stands on the other side. Charlie stands at the foot of the bed.
We're really glad you're okay, Niley.
Do you remember everything?
Yeah. I remember - - Benny screaming
something and then I remember FLYING out of
the car as it was tumbling around. I remember
hearing stuff too but being unable to open
my eyes. The doctor said some things should
still be a bit fuzzy.
As soon as your better, I promise you could
use my hair to experiment on since you don't
have your own.
Oh my God, that'll be the best.
Niley looks over at Kirby, excited.
Oh, hell no, you ain't touchin' my shit.
And we'll get back started on watching more
movies as soon as you're out of here.
I'm sorry... but who are you again?
Robbie's once smile turns into a frown. The music RISES. Everyone in the room looks at him - - looking for his reaction. He just sighs.
NEXT TIME, ON WOODSBORO HIGH:
Jill gives Olivia a piece of her mind.
Kirby's final game in the soccer tournament.
Robbie tries to make an impression Niley so she remembers him.
And MORE as we're now HALF WAY until the TWO-PART SEASON FINALE!
