1. INT. MAX AND TIM’S APARTMENT-NIGHT
TIM is slouched over on a couch in his apartment watching television. The lights are dimmed low in the living room. TIM sips on a Natural Light beer can with his eyes constantly checking the screen door. TIM (muttering to himself) Where the hell is this kid? MAX throws open the door and runs in quickly. JACK slowly trails in behind him. MAX Whats up you son of a bitch? TIM I’ve been waiting for you asshole. Let’s go, hurry up. JACK walks in the door and nods at TIM. He sneaks in the bathroom. TIM (glaring at the bathroom door) What the hell? MAX (confused) What do you mean what the hell? TIM stands up and approaches MAX aggressively. TIM (whispering) Why’d you invite him to come out with us? You know I don’t like the kid... He’s bad news. JACK walks out of bathroom. TIM notices and becomes silent. JACK (smirking) Hey Timbo! Relax man you look like hell. TIM Good to see you too Jack. MAX stands in between the two, anxiously watching their interaction.
JACK Besides I thought we’re all here to have a good time tonight. I think I got something to get you out of that shitty mood Timbo. JACK begins making his way over toward the kitchen table. TIM (Sarcastically) I doubt it, Jacko. JACK reaches in his pocket and pulls out a bag of cocaine and tosses it onto the table. He then leans back in the chair and crosses his hands behind his head. He smiles. JACK What about now? TIM becomes furious. He jumps towards the table at the bag but MAX grabs him and drags him into the living room. MAX (wrestling Tim into the other room) Hey wait! Relax, let me talk you. Let me talk to you for a second! TIM (trying to wrestle past Max) What the fuck is that?! You let him bring coke in here! Get off me! JACK watches the two struggle with his arms folded and a smirk on his face. MAX finally gets TIM to stand still and calm down. MAX Alright I know you’re pissed. But you want to try some? I did some earlier and its pretty sweet. TIM puts his arms on his hips and begins pacing around the room. He laughs in disbelief of what MAX has just said. TIM You’re retarded, you know that right? Do you know how many people get fucked up from doing that stuff?!
MAX (ashamed) I know. MAX puts his head down for a second. He glances up at TIM with a desperate look. Can me? I’m its
MAX you please just try one with I know you’d like it. Come on, just trying it once to see what like.
TIM looks at him pathetically. He then glances over MAX’s shoulder and sees JACK snorting a line off the table. He pauses to himself and then slowly leans in towards MAX’s head. TIM (in a light voice) Ill do one if you promise to get Jack and that shit out right after. I mean literally a fucking second after we do this. MAX (brightly looking at Tim) Alright, deal. Seriously its cool. TIM and MAX walk over to the table where JACK sits. Three lines of the white powder are lined in a row next to a rolled-up dollar bill. TIM kneels over his white line with the dollar bill, pauses, then uncomfortably snorts it up into his nostril. He shoots his head back in discomfort and his eyes begin to water. MAX and TIM take turns doing the rest on the table. MAX (holding his nose) Not bad right? JACK I knew you had it in you Timbo. TIM ignores both the boys and signals everyone out the front door. TIM Let’s go, out! All three of the boys walk out the front door of the apartment.
2. INT. HOUSE PARTY-NIGHT
The three boys walk into a house party across the street. TIM walks in wide-eyed, feeling excited and confident from the coke, and begins socializing with a few friends. MAX and JACK scan the party and sneak into another room of the party. TIM sees them walk away. TIM (shouting toward them) Hey! Come on lets talk to some girls! Ah, whatever. TIM goes back to talking with people at the party. A few hours pass by and TIM sees JOHN, his neighbor, and approaches to greet him. TIM Yo John whats up dude? JOHN Hey what’s up baby? The two embrace with a handshake and a pat on the back. JOHN So how are the ladies lookin’ here tonight? Oh wow look at that one. Dayum! TIM There are some dimes here I’ll tell you that my friend. JOHN I can see that. That’s probably what scared Max off! What a pussy. TIM (confused) What do you mean you’ve seen him here already? I haven’t been able to find him. JOHN No man. I saw him and one of your other friends go back to your place like an hour ago. TIM Alright thanks. I’m going to see what he’s doing. Take it easy.
TIM gives JOHN another handshake and exits out the door in a fast pace. 3. INT. MAX AND TIM’S APARTMENT-NIGHT
TIM walks through the front door of his apartment and comes to a dead stop after one step. JACK is kneeling over MAX who is lying flat on his back on the living room floor. TIM squints his eyes, unsure of what he’s witnessing, and crosses the kitchen towards them. TIM What’s going on here? JACK turns around with a terrified look on his face. JACK (panicked) Tim! I don’t know what happened. We were just chilling here and all of a sudden he curled over and started making these weird sounds. TIM looks over at the living room table and sees more cocaine spread out over the table. He throws JACK to the ground in anger and kneels over MAX. TIM (screaming) How much did you make him do?! You son of a bitch! MAX is moaning and grabbing his stomach. Foam begins to drip from his mouth. JACK (stuttering) Uh... Uh... We didn’t do that much I don’t think? TIM It was his first time you idiot! Of course it doesn’t seem like that much to you! Look at me Max! Come on man! JACK stands staring at MAX like he has seen a ghost. His face is pale and tears start coming from his face. TIM Go call 911! Oh god I’m so sorry Max. Jack get the fucking phone! (CONTINUED)
JACK is still dead in his tracks. He stands there like a stone staring at MAX. TIM God Damnit! TIM runs to the phone and dials 911. 4.EXT. MAX AND TIMâ€™S APARTMENT-NIGHT
The paramedics take MAX out of the apartment on a stretcher. Tubes stream out of his mouth and his nose. All the neighbors on the block, including the people at the house party, are standing outside viewing the spectacle. TIM and JACK stand at the end of the driveway as the ambulance speeds down the street. TIM (head down to himself) What did I do? I should have stopped him...
