EXT. MERRILLVILLE HIGH SCHOOL CAFETERIA DAY
DONALD BEE, big unusual smile, is taking a seat at the cafeteria breakfast table with two of his best friends Ralph Williams and Pedro Hernandez. (cont’d) WILLIAMS What that big smile all about? Did you have wet dream or something? hahaha! BEE Even better! You know that "love drug" that Mr. Lopez created in class last week? I know how I’m going to find my prom date. HERNANDEZ I hope your not thinking of what I think you are! Are you? (cont’d) You know it! I am going to take the drug and then tomorrow, I won’t have to worry about finding a prom date. If the drug works, all the girls will ask me and all I’ll have to do is choose. O yea! (High fives Pedro) WILLIAMS Are you sure that that is a good idea? You are really taking a risk at no being able to go to the prom or possibly even getting expelled from high your senior year! Do you even know the possible side effects of the drug is? You could be taking anything, you don’t know what is in that drug. (cont’d) Yes, it is only a tester right now but Mr. Lopez created himself from that chemicals that are inside of the school. Think about it! What chemicals would you allow to be in (MORE) (CONTINUED)
your school? Not ones that could really harm children right? (Hands out pleading for agreement) (cont’d) WILLIAMS Maybe! (Shaking his head) (cont’d) BEE So whats the worst that could happen? A few days of being sick! I’m sorry RALPH, but I am willing to take the risk of being sick a few days versus have every girl in the school wanting me as their prom date. (cont’d) Everybody dreams of that stuff DONALD! This is reality, so stop being stupid and think about this. I don’t think you should do it. (cont’d) HERNANDEZ Come on Ralph! Stop being such a party pooper. We only have one life to live and it is our senior year. We only get one shot at high school prom. We both have dates but Donald doesn’t. I say that you go for it. Yea, it is a little risky but so what. Sometimes you just have to live life on the edge man. (cont’d) Pedro, that might be the dumbest thing that I have ever heard you say. Who do you think you are. You think life is a big joke don’t you! We all have bright futures ahead of us and you could ruin many opportunities by doing something dumb just like this.
(cont’d) OOOOOOO shut up Ralph! hahahahahaha (cont’d) Hahahahahaha WILLIAMS Haha I’m serious man. But whatever, if your going to do it, you better make sure that you do not get caught. So how do you plan to get the drug? (cont’d) BEE I was thinking that I should try to do this a lunch time since everybody is out of there rooms. HERNANDEZ That would be perfect because Mr. Lopez and I are supposed to go over some problems in the teachers lounge. Just text me when your done so I can know weather or not I need to stall them. (cont’d) BEE Great! After school lets meet at my house.
