JACOB: ABOUT HALF AN HOUR AWAY JESS.
JESS: JACOB? YOU SAID THAT LIKE HALF AN HOUR AGO? YOU SURE YOU?RE RIGHT. WHAT ROAD ARE WE ON? I?M SURE WE WERE ON MONTGOMERY ROAD BEFORE I FELL ASLEEP.

JESS: YOU?VE GOT TO BE SHITTING ME!
JACOB: NO ONE WILL BE SHITTING IN MY CAR NOW! AHH? MY FIRST CAR.

JACOB: I REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I DROVE THIS CAR. YOU REMEMBER JESS? THE WINDOW OPENED WITH THE BREEZE FLOWING IN, TOSSING MY HAIR, SMELLING THE FRESH BREEZE, US, HAND IN HAND, SITTING NEXT TO EACH OTHER?
THEY BOTH GET IN THE CAR WHILE JACOB IS TALKING.
JACOB: I ALSO REMEMBER WHEN WE HAD SEX IN THIS CAR, RIGHT ON THAT SEAT, SO MUCH SPERM CAME OUT I HAD TO CLEAN THIS WHOLE CAR FOR WEEKS. (JACOB POINTS AT A WHITE SPLOTCH ON THE WHEEL) THAT?S THE ONLY REMINDER LEFT.

JACOB: THERE WAS THIS ONE ROAD THAT WAS JUST FANTASTIC!
JESS: YES AND A SCHOOL OVAL AS WELL?

JODIE GIVES HIM A LOOK.
REON: HE-WHO-WILL-NOT-BE-NAMED ALWAYS SUITED HIM BETTER. WELL WHY ARE YOU STILL ALL DEPRESSED ABOUT THE BREAK UP?
JODIE (PROGRESIVELLY YELLING): BECAUSE IT WAS UNFAIR HOW HE LEFT ME! IT WAS UNFAIR HOW HE TREATS HIS BLOODY ROCK MUSIC AND FAME MORE THEN HIS ?ORDINARY LITTLE GIRL?. AND, IF HE?S ANYTHING LIKE THE OTHER VILE, DE-MEANING ROCK STARS OUT THERE, HE WOULD LEAVE ME AT THE FIRST SIGN OF A HOT ARSE AND A NIGHT OF SNIFFING COCAINE OUT OF IT!!!
REON: YOU NEVER TOLD ME THIS?
JODIE: WHY! WHY SHOULD I OF TOLD YOU? YOU WOULD HAVE HATED HIM JUST FOR ME, EVEN IF HE WAS YOUR BEST FRIEND.
REON: WELL, YEAH OF COURSE, ANYONE WOULD, WOULDN?T YOU?
JODIE: BUT YOU SEE, I DON?T HATE HIM? I STILL LOVE HIM SOO MUCH. BUT I CAN?T LET HIM JUST THINK HE CAN HAVE ME AND TOSS ME AROUND DEPENDING ON HIS SCHEDULE WITH OTHER WOMEN.
REON: AH SO JODIE?S TRYING TO GET WOMEN?S RIGHTS?
JODIE: YES FINE THERE?S A SIMPLE WAY OF PUTTING IT I GUESS.
REON: YOU OKAY? DO I? PAT YOU ON THE CHEEK?
REON REACHES DOWN TO JODIE?S BOTTOM.
JODIE: REON?. YOU CAN ONLY TOUCH MY FACE CHEEK? NOT MY ARSE CHEEK.
REON: UNFORTUNATE? JUST TRYING TO MAKE YOU HAPPIER? HEY CAN I DRIVE?
JODIE LOOKS UP, SHOCKED.
REON: I?LL GO SIT IN THE PASSENGER?S SEAT? (JODIE?S STILL GOT A SHOCKED LOOK)? HANG ON THE BACK SEAT LOOKS GOOD ENOUGH.
JODIE STOPS AND GETS INTO THE DRIVER?S SEAT. REON SITS DOWN IN THE BACK SEAT AND TRIES TO PUT HIS SEAT BELT ON. HE THEN GETS UP, REALISING HE?S SITTING ON A BABY?S SEAT.
REON: JODIE? WHY DO YOU HAVE A BABY?S SEAT IN THE BACK HERE?
JODIE: HMM? OH THAT?S JUST FOR PRACTICE?

REON: WELL, CAN I HAVE ANYTHING NOT ON THE MENU? MAYBE YOU COULD MAKE A SPECIAL TREAT FOR ME?
WAITER: OKAY WHAT DID YOU HAVE IN MIND SIR?
REON IS FROZEN, AND DOESN?T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.
REON: I?LL? I?LL JUST? MAYBE?
WAITER: I?LL COME BACK TO YOU YES?
REON NODS HIS HEAD. THE WAITER LEAVES. EVERYONE CRACKS UP LAUGHING.
DECLAN: YOU MESSED UP BIG TIME.
REON: IT?S JUST THAT THE LINE HAS NEVER WORKED FOR ME BEFORE? I SHOULD MAN UP AND GO OVER THERE AND JUST SAY WHAT?S ON MY MIND.
DEANNA: YES? WHAT?S ON YOUR MIND? NOT WHAT?S ON YOUR PENIS?S MIND.
REON: WISH ME LUCK?
THE GROUP ARE SILENT FOR A SECOND, AND THEN THEY ALL BREAK OUT WITH GOOD LUCK?S. REON GETS UP AND LEAVES.
DECLAN: NOW THAT WE DON?T HAVE AN IDIOT TO SPOIL IT?
DECLAN GETS OFF HIS SEAT AND DOWN ON ONE KNEE NEXT TO DEANNA. HE PULLS OUT A CASE, AND FLIPS IT OPEN TO REVEAL A SHINNY NEW WEDDING RING.
DECLAN: DEANNA, I WANT TO SPEND TODAY, AND THE NEXT DAY, AND THE DAY AFTER THAT, AND THE REST OF THE DAYS AFTER THAT WITH YOU BENEATH MY WING. I WANT TO EXPERIENCE WHAT YOU EXPERIENCE, TAKE JOY IN WHAT YOU TAKE JOY IN, AND ULTIMATELY BE THERE TO MAKE YOU STRONG, WHEN THE DARKNESS SURRONDS YOU. DEANNA, I WANT YOU TO BE THE PRODUCT OF MY GOOD DREAMS, AND THE DESTRUCTOR OF MY BAD ONES. I WANT YOU THERE IN THE END, HOLDING MY HAND THE SAME WAY AS WE STARTED. DEANNA, I WANT YOU TO BE MY WIFE SO I KNOW YOU?RE THERE WHEN I?M SLEEPING, AND WHEN I?M AWAKE, AND BE THERE IN MY LEADING NEEDS. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, I WANT YOU DEANNA. AS CHEAP TRICK USED TO SAY ?I WANT YOU TO WANT ME?.
DEANNA, BY THIS POINT, IS BAWLING HER EYES OUT. ALL SHE CAN DO IS NOD AS A REPLY. THE GROUP CHEER AND APPLAUD. DECLAN PUTS THE RING ON DEANNA?S FINGER, AND DEANNA GRABS DECLAN INTO A BIG HUG SO SHE CAN HIDE HER FACE. WHEN SHE FINISHES HUGGING DECLAN, SHE MOVES ONTO HUGGING THE REST OF THE GROUP.
JODIE: OH GOD DAMN IT I NEED THE BATHROOM.
JODIE WALKS OFF TOWARDS THE TOILETS. CAMERA FOLLOWS HER. JODIE IS OPENING THE DOOR TO THE TOILETS, SMILING AND HAPPY, WHEN SHE HEARS A VOICE FROM BEHIND HER.

AYRTON: WHAT IF I SAY SLIPPED, SAY, A MILLION DOLLARS INTO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT
JODIE(MIMICKING): SAY, ARE YOU, SAY, BRIBING ME?
AYRTON SMILES.
JODIE: THE ANSWER?S NO!
AYRTON?S SMILE FADES AWAY.
AYRTON: WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN US! WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME?
JODIE: BECAUSE YOU?RE TOO OBSESSED WITH YOUR ?MUSICAL TALENT? TO PAY ATTENTION TO ME! OR ANYONE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER! YOUR FRIENDS ARE OUT THERE, AND THEY PROBABLY WOULDN?T EVEN RECGONISE YOU! NOT EVEN YOUR ONCE BEST FRIEND REON!
AYRTON: BULLSHIT!

SOMEONE YOU DON?T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT COMING HOME TO AT NIGHT BECAUSE SHE?LL BE TOO BUSY BEING FAMOUS AS WELL!
AYRTON: JODIE YOU HAVE TO GIVE ME A CHANCE TO SPEAK!
JODIE: OH! ALRIGHT! LET?S SEE WHAT LOUSY, CHEESY LITTLE LINE YOU CAN GIVE HERE SO I WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU FOR 5 OR 6 MONTHS BEFORE YOU FIND YOURSELF A FAMOUS WOMAN!
AYRTON: GOD DAMMIT JODIE! I WOULD NEVER DO THAT TO YOU! YES! I KNOW I HAVEN?T SPENT TOO MUCH TIME WITH YOU DUE TO THE MUSIC.. BUT NOW THAT THE ALBUM?S FINISHED AND THE TOUR IS FINISHED THANKS TO THOSE ARSEHOLES? I?M FREE! OF COURSE I?LL BE BACK IN THE STUDIO IN A YEAR OR SO? BUT DOESN?T THAT HAPPEN WITH ANY TYPE OF WORK?
JODIE: OH YES? BECAUSE WORKING REALLY ENTITLES THAT YOU HAVE A GOOD TIME PARTYING WITH YOUR MATES? WHILE I SIT AT HOME EATING BY MYSELF, CRYING BY MYSELF AND WATCHING BLOODY STUPID SEX AND THE CITY BY MYSELF!!
AYRTON: I THOUGHT ALL GIRLS LIKED SEX AND THE CITY?
JODIE: NOW IS NOT THE TIME FOR THIS ARGUMENT AYRTON!! NOW, I HAVE TO GO TO THE TOILET NOW AND THEN JOIN UP WITH THE REST OF MY ?REAL? FRIENDS AS DEANNA HAS JUST GOTTEN ENGAGED TO DECLAN.
AYRTON: DEANNA AND DECLAN ARE MARRIED?
JODIE: YES? AND YOU WOULD KNOW THAT IF YOU SPENT A MILISECOND OF TIME WITH ANY OF US INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT YOURSELF AND ROCKETING TO FAME!
AYRTON: BUT?
JODIE: GOOD BYE AYRTON!
JODIE GOES INTO THE GIRL?S LAVATORY. AYRTON, WITHOUT THINKING FOLLWS HER IN THERE, SCREAMING JODIE?S NAME OUT. AYRTON ENTERS THE BATHROOM AND SEES A BIG RUSSIAN LADY WASHING HER HANDS, GIVING AYRTON THE GLARE.

DEANNA: GOD REON NO I?M?
REON FLIPS DEANNA OF THE CHAIR AND PUTS HER ON THE GROUND.
REON: WE NEED A MEDIC HERE! WE NEED A?
EVERYONE STARES AT AYRTON, WHO HAS SEATED HIMSELF DOWN AT THE TABLE.
AYRTON: HEY GUYS.
REON: I?M SORRY, DO I KNOW YOU?
AYRTON: YOU HAVE TO BE JOKING ME? OF COURSE YOU KNOW ME! DON?T YOU REMEMBER?
JESS: I?M SORRY BUT WE?RE IN A MOMMENT HERE, SO CAN YOU PLEASE LEAVE?
KAHLIA: DAMN RIGHT WE ARE! THIS IS RABBIT! NOT CHICKEN!
JESS: HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?
KAHLIA: BECAUSE RABBITS HEADS ARE SMALLER.
KAHLIA TURNS AROUND TO SEE AYRTON?S STILL THERE.
KAHLIA: WHAT DO YOU WANT, YOU STRANGE MAN.
AYRTON: NOTHING? CARRY ON?
AYRTON GETS UP, UPSET AND WALKS OFF.
REON: YOU SURE WE DON?T KNOW HIM?
JESS: NO HE WAS WAY TO MUCH OF A CREEP FOR US
REON: SAIDS THE CHICK WHO?S MARRIED TO THAT.
JESS LOOKS TO WHERE REON?S POINTING, WHICH IS BEHIND HER. JACOB IS TRYING TO RAM A BIG BRIGHT RED POLE INTO A TABLE, AND 3 WAITERS ARE TRYING TO WRESTLE THE POLE OUT OF HIS HAND.
