AN HOUR LATER.

INT.CHASE'S DINING ROOM.NIGHT

Ryan has just left, in the background we hear Danielle say good night, and close the door.

Patty: that was,(pause)interesting.

Graham looks at the mess left by Angela, Danielle, and Ryan.

Patty: did you see how he was looking at her? (Pause)when did this happen? Kid's looking at each other like that at 12?

Graham: oh, come on Patty, I was like that at 12, I guess.

This doesn't please patty. She look's almost hostile.

Graham: I don't know she seemed more embarassed than anything else.

Patty: I cant believe this. We basically just lost Angela, an now were going to lose Danielle.

Graham: hold on,(pause) no one is losing anything. I think , maybe you should let me handle the dishes, and you go up and relax, ok?

Patty: I suppose.

Graham: come on. I will clean up. Now, (pause) go to your room.

Patty gives him an odd look.

Patty: alright.

She hand's him a glass, and leaves for upstairs. Danielle enter's. She help's Graham pick the plate's up, and bring's them into the kitchen.


EXT.CHASE'S KITCHEN.NIGHT

Graham: so, Ryan's seem's like a good kid.

Danielle: what?(vo) oh god please don't do this to me.

Graham: well, I mean what does meeting a person prove.

Graham thinks a second.

Graham:(vo) Dejavu.

Danielle: I guess.

EXT.ANGELA'S BEDROOM.NIGHT

Angela: (vo)that was weird, meeting Danielle's, (pause)friend. I never imagined Danielle having a boyfriend, and not me. It's like, weird, but im happy for her. I mean-

Danielle knocks on Angela's door.

Danielle: can I come in? I have to ask you something.

Angela: uh, come in. (vo)That's a first.

Danielle opens the door, and staggers in.

Angle-Danielle's face

Angle-Angela's face

Angela: so, uh, what did you want to ask me?

Danielle: ok, we were walking, and we were like almost near school, and he started asking me questions. Like, the first words he said to me were those are nice shoes. And I was like thanks.

Angela doesn't get the point.

Angela: so? (uptight)Get to the point.

Danielle: then he asked me to go *out* with him, like, again. But more serious.

Angela: really? (Pause) more serious? How serious?(pause) (smiles)kissing?

Danielle: I don't know.

Angela: well (pause to think) I think you should do it. Well not do it. I mean-

Danielle:I know what you mean. (V0) but I really didnt.

Angela smiles at danielle, and walks closer to her.

Angela: I think you should say yes.

Danielle: really? Do you think I have to follow those rules mom, and dad gave you?

Angela: I think you should ask them about that.(vo) did I just say that?


EST.SCHOOL.MORNING

It is raining slightly. Pan across car window, with raindrops exploding on the windshield. We see Jordan's car. Angela, and Jordan are sitting in it talking.


INT.JORDAN'S CAR.MORNING

Angela: so you quit?

Angel-Jordan's face

Jordan: yeah,(pause) look I don't want to talk about it.

Angela: oh, no, I didn't-

Jordan: ok.

Angela:(vo) it's weird when you see someone who lost something, and you can't like help them, (analysing) only he quit, so I'm not shure it's the same. I should really be listening to what he's saying.

We see jordan's lip's moving, but we dont hear him. He stops for a second, and leans in and starts to kiss Angela. Angela kisses him back. Cut to:


INT.GIRLS BATHROOM.MORNING

Rayanne, and Sharon are in there. Rayanne is sitting on the radiator, and Sharon is leaning up against the wall next to it. We hear the rain as hard as in the auditorium. Rayanne hums out a greatful dead song. Sharon listens, but has never heard the song before.

Sharon: so, have you seen Angela today?

Rayanne: Cherski, it's like 8:51 in the morning.(pause) The world won't fall apart if we don't see Angela. (Pause) but, I saw her by Jordan's car about an hour ago. (pause)Well actually in his car.

Sharon: *In* his car?

Sharon looks out the window. The parking lot is just out of sight.

Sharon: do you, like, think they-

Rayanne: do I think they had sex, or was I involved?

Sharon gives her a sick look.

Rayanne: well you can't expect me to completely change. It's how I, like, think, or whatever.

Sharon: no I can't expect you to change, and I dont want you to change. I like you because you *are* you.

Rayanne smiles.

Rayanne: well good, because I can't change. I'm me, however much I can be annoying-

Sharon cuts her off.

Sharon: you're not annoying. You're like, you, and I'm greatful.

Rayanne smiles again. The bell rings


EST.LOUD NINE.NOON

Graham is cleaning off some plates. There are chinese take out cartons all over one of the tables. We see the rain coming down hard, as opposed to hearing it, through the store front windows. Hallie is standing by the open back door looking through the rain, into nothing.


INT.CLOUD NINE.NOON

Graham: uh, Hallie are you ok?

Hallie: I'm fine.(pause) I just like looking into the rain. Y'know just think.

Graham senses a little hostility, and decides to back off.

Graham: ok, I'm gonna go pick up some(pause) kitty litter.

Hallie: why do we need kitty litter for a restaurant?

Graham: uh it's for our cat, at home.

Hallie looks around for a second.

Hallie: you have a cat?

Graham: y'know a lot of people don't believe that we have a cat.(pause) yes we have a cat. A Grey one.

Graham leaves. Hallie continues to stare into the rain.


INT.SCHOOL LUNCHROOM.LUNCHTIME

Jordan, and Shane sit at a table near the back. Angela walks past, not noticing them. Jordan chases after her.

Jordan: hey Angela. Do you wanna, like sit with me, and uh, Shane?

Angela:(vo)Oh, my God.

Angela is moved. They rarely sit together at lunch. Only when in Jordan's car for *dessert*.

Angela: um, ok. I could do that.

She looks toward Rayanne, and Sharon, and walks toward Jordan's table.

EXT.CAFETERIA TABLE.NOON.

Angela, Shane, and Jordan sit there awkwardly. Shane, and Angela have never really talked, and can't think of anything to start with.

Jordan: (to Angela)how's, uh, Brian?

Angela: um, he's doing good. I haven't seen him in a while.

She takes a bite of her cheeseburger.

Jordan: how are you tutoring me then?

Angela: oh, he gave me these lesson plan things. He went to San Francisco, to see a new doctor.

Shane: what's up with him?

Angela: he has leukemia. You didn't know?

Shane: no. I don't follow people's lives, or listen to gossip.

Jordan: he just creates his own gossip.

Shane pushes Jordan in the chest, jokingly.

Jordan: hey, man it's true.

Shane: I never said anything about that girl Sharon.

Jordan: shut up.

Angela: Sharon Cherski? What about her.

Shane: that thing in the bathroom. She didn't tell you?

Jordan punches him on the arm, hard enough to make him stop, but enough to really hurt.

Jordan: shut up!

Angle-Angela'a saddened face
