INT. REON?S ROOM
Travis and Reon are sitting on a couch, with a table laid out in front of them. On this couch holds a number of beer bottles.

REON:
Hey Travis, I have a universe question to ask about. So bullets usually slow down in water pretty fast, right?

TRAVIS:
I?m interested to see where you?re going with this, Reon...So yes.

REON:
So if someone fired a bullet whilst it was raining, does the bullet slow down? Because technically, it?s passing through water. ALSO, it?s carrying extra weight from the drops of water!˜

TRAVIS:
Sometimes I wonder why you still have a job - then I remember janitors don?t need brains.

REON:
But it?s totally scientifically proven - If an athlete runs a 100 metre race, then runs that same 100 metre race with a bag on, he goes slower right? Because of the extra weight, so obviously -

TRAVIS:
(intterupting) Please just kill me now.
Jodie enters the room, and sits down in between Reon and Travis.

JODIE:
Morning, dudes.˜

TRAVIS:
Morning Jodie.

JODIE:
So what are you two up to today?

REON:
Well, I think I?ve basically proven something scientific.

TRAVIS:
Yes, and that is that somehow, humans are able to function without a brain.

REON:
What are you going on about? I?m talking about slowing down a speeding bullet?

TRAVIS:
Sometimes it hurts to insult others.

JODIE:
Well I?m going out to dinner with Ayrton tonight! Isn?t that brilliant?

REON:
How come they deliver babies in women? Like wouldn?t it be easier for men to shoot out the babies, instead of the men sending the babies to the women, and then the women shooting out the babies?

TRAVIS:
Surprisingly, that?s the most sensible thing he?s said today.

JODIE:
(Noticing beer bottles) What! Are you guys drinking already! But it?s not even 9 in the morning!

REON:
We?re getting ready for the new episode of Doctor Who! This is our pre party, before the party tonight.

JODIE:
Oh really? Who?s invited to this party?

TRAVIS:
So far, the people at the pre party. So technically this is the party, and will keep being the party throughout the rest of the day.

JODIE:
Right. Well we can play a little game right?

REON:
As long as it?s not Cluedo. People hate me after playing Cluedo.

TRAVIS:
That?s because you keep calling the police and arresting the ?murderer? and calling yourself a detective! The last guy you played Cluedo with almost got the electric chair!

REON:
Oooo! I?ve never played the electric chair before.

TRAVIS:
Jodie, please begin the game!

JODIE:
Right, well basically you guys are going to help me pick out something to wear for tonight!

TRAVIS:
Isn?t that a bit gay?

JODIE:
We are playing with Reon.

REON:
I regret to inform you that gay means happy, which I still am. I wish to be called a homosexual, as I have rights.

TRAVIS:˜
Equality for homosexuals haven?t landed yet, young mistress.

Cut to a few momments later, Reon and Travis are still on the chair, and are awaiting Jodie to return.

TRAVIS:˜
How long can it take to change clothes?

REON:
Well, I guess you have to take in consideration the fact that they are carrying the clothes, which would be extra weight, and would make the person go slower than if they -

TRAVIS:
(intterupting) Forget the fact that I complained.

Jodie enters, wearing a lovely white dress.

JODIE:
So what do you think?

TRAVIS:
I think it looks like you?re suggesting marriage better be coming, or you?ll break up with him.

JODIE:
You think it looks too much like a wedding dress?

REON:
I think what Travis is saying, is that you should wear something that doesn?t resemble the white simplicity of the value of marriage and

JODIE:
(intterupting) No, I agree with Travs for once Reon... Please be quiet.

TRAVIS:
Thank you. I just think you should go for something a bit more - I don?t know - sexy?

JODIE:
All I have is my lingeie?

TRAVIS:
Please, for all that is good for me, please try that on!

JODIE:˜
Okay, next time I play this game, it?s just going to be with the gay one.

REON:
Well, Travis looks pretty happy right now.

JODIE:
REON! Stop trying to change the meaning of gay back to happy! It?s gay, which means homosexual, and that?s the end of it!

REON:
You know - I wonder if book will mean something else in a couple of years time.

TRAVIS:˜
Oh, I really want to see where this goes.

REON:
Like, think about it this way. No one - well except the oldies - really read books anymore. It?s all online and digital. So in a couple of years time, all books could probably be gone! So... Would the word ?books? get a new meaning then? Like... Could it mean ?happy?? In the future?

JODIE:
Okay - change of plans - I wouldn?t even do this game with the only gay guy I know. Where?s my girlfriends when you need them.

TRAVIS:
HA! I knew you were gay!

Jodie groans, and storms out of the room.

REON:
So, like in the future, could that also mean that Textbook will not exist as a word anymore?

TRAVIS:
Okay Reon, you?re really going to need to stop before you hurt your head anymore.

INT. DEANNA?S LOUNGEROOM

Deanna is awaiting Jodie to return to her room. Jodie walks into the room, wearing the same white dress as previously. Deanna sighs and claps excitedly.

DEANNA:
Oh I love it Jodie! I love it!

JODIE:
Thanks Deanna! You don?t think it?s a bit too much? Like, you don?t hear wedding bells with this dress?

DEANNA:
Are you serious? Are you seriously asking that question?

JODIE:
Oh thank god, Travis and Reon are just idiots then.

DEANNA:
They must be! Because that dress scream more then wedding bells. That wedding dress screams a pastor to come out right now and marry you two! You are totally going to get engaged in the next two months Jodie!
Jodie looks stunned, and sighs, defeated with her little game. She gives up and decides to talk about something else.

JODIE:
Anyways, you and Declan is the most important thing today. Have you thought about how you?re going to break up with him?

DEANNA:
Well, I realised I watched a lot of romantic movies to figure out how to ask out people, so I thought I should watch another genre to figure out how to break up with them?

JODIE:
Ah, so you?re using the old drama genre to break up with them? I know a good movie, Blue Valentine, that shows a lot about divorce and...

DEANNA:
(intterupting) What! Are you kidding me Jodie? I?m using the horror genre? Tons of relationships break up over that!

JODIE:
(confused) Isn?t that because one of them usually die?

DEANNA:
Well, most of the time, except for some movies, like Scream, where the boyfriend turns out to be the killer.

JODIE:
Don?t you think it?s easier to just say ?we need to take a break?, then lodge an axe into his head?

DEANNA:
Usually, but most break ups happen because you get sick of your partner, so wouldn?t it be easier to just do it in a horror film way?

JODIE:
Okay, I?m going to definetely help you out here. Okay, so you?ll be Declan in this case, and I?ll be you.

DEANNA:˜
But I don?t want to be tied up and sawed to death.

JODIE:
(angry, but trying to keep calm) No one, is going to be killed in this little demonstration. Alright, so just listen to me and take notes, okay? Hi Declan! How are you!

Deann then turns her head around to look for someone.

JODIE: (CONT?D)
Deanna! What on earth are you doing!

DEANNA:˜
Oh that was close! I thought you were talking to the actual Declan! (laughs)

JODIE:
Okay... Right... Deanna... Just listen... I don?t think it?s working out between us, and I think we should take a break to re-evaluate our love.

DEANNA:
Are you saying you don?t want to be friends anymore? WHAT DID I DO WRONG!!!!

JODIE:
No Deanna, that was just me pretending to -

DEANNA:
(intterupting, screaming) WHY WOULD YOU MESS WITH MY FEELINGS LIKE THAT! HOW DARE YOU!

JODIE:
Oh why...

INT. RESTAURANT

Jodie and Ayrton are eating at a restaurant, laughing, having a good time.˜

AYRTON:
Waiter, please bring the bill!

WAITER:˜
Yes sir!

The waiter picks up the check and walks over to Ayrton?s table, and hands him the bill. Ayrton reads the bill and his smile fades.

AYRTON:
What is going on here? 500 dollars? For dinner? But it should only have cost 200 or so? Yes see, cheap wine, I had the chicken salad and you had the...

Ayrton pauses as he sees Jodie?s plate. He is shocked.

AYRTON: (CONT?D)
Jodie! You ordered THAT!

JODIE:
It sounded really yummy!

AYRTON:
Well it would be for how expensive it is! (to waiter) Is there a way that we could possibly get a discount or cut the price somehow? My girlfriend here, didn?t realise how much the meal was going to cost...

WAITER;
Sorry, I don?t think we can offer you anything.
Ayrton sighs and scratches his head.

JODIE:
Maybe I can pay for half of it - I mean it doesn?t really matter who pays -as long as we had a fun time together. Right, sweetie?

Ayrton passes Jodie the bill. Jodie has a shocked look when she reads it
.
JODIE: (CONT?D)
I?m just going to call Dad.

INT. COFFEE SHOP.

Deanna and Declan are at a table, drinking coffee.

DEANNA:
Declan, I need to... Inform you of something.

DECLAN:˜
This does not sound good. The only time people tell others they need to ?inform? them of something is on Grey?s Anatomy and a patient is dead. Has my mother died?

DEANNA:
No

DECLAN:
Father?

DEANNA:
No

DECLAN:
Sister?

DEANNA:
NO!

DECLAN:
Thank god! Because I don?t even have a sister! How bad would it be to not know you have a sister and then find out she?s dead!

DEANNA:
OKAY! No one is dead Declan! All I want to say to you, is that I feel like we should take a break, and re-evaluate our time together.

DECLAN:
Re-evaluate? Did I fail something and need to try again? Because the only time I hear that word is in math class when I -

DEANNA:
(intterupting) Okay you know what Declan? I?m breaking up with you. Goodbye.

Deanna gets up, irritated, and leaves. Declan is still stunned.

DECLAN:
Breaking up - that sounds bad. I wonder if that means we can?t make out anymore. I?ll be sure to text her tonight about that.

INT. REON?S ROOM
Reon and Travis are still sitting on the couch, the pile of beer bottles grown larger since last.

REON:
That was a good episode of Doctor Who.

TRAVIS:
Yeah, you think he?s going to die, but then POOF! He regenerates and livs to fight another day!

REON:
How often do you think he?s regenerated now?

TRAVIS:
I don?t know - probably about a 1000.

Jodie storms in and sits inbetween Travis and Reon again. She is angry.

TRAVIS: (CONT?D)
So, how was your lovely date? Are you engaged yet?

Jodie looks angrily at Travis.

TRAVIS: (CONT?D)
Oh, she?s giving me that look like I should shut up right now... Sooooooooooo...Did you guys do it?

JODIE:˜
I really hate you Travis. (to Reon) Reon. Ayrton just got angry because I ordered a really expensive dish, and I had to get my dad to pay for it, because he was too angry with me to pay for it... I think he hates me.

Jodie then starts to cry, and hugs Reon, putting her head into his chest. Reon pats Jodie.

TRAVIS:
Okay, there is a good career for getting girls in being gay. I really have to look into that.

Deanna then storms and sits down on the couch as well.

TRAVIS: (CONT?D)
You alright Deanna?

DEANNA:
No... I just had to break up with Declan, it was REALLY hard for me.

TRAVIS:
Well, you had the courage to do it, that?s the main thing...

DEANNA:
No, it was hard to tell him so he understood! Try telling Reon that you can?t surf on a guitar. That?s how I feel.

TRAIVS:
OH MY GOD! Tha must have been the hardest thing for you to ever do!

DEANNA:
I know right! And he STILL doesn?t understand! I?ve gotten phone calls and texts in the past hour asking if that means if he?s not allowed to hold my hand in public anymore!

TRAVIS:
One day he?ll get it... It?s like Reon... He gets things... Eventually
Deanna and Travis look at Reon. Reon is touching Jodie?s hair.

REON:
I wonder if you shave off all of a women?s hair, does it grow back?

Deanna and Travis then look at each other, scared. Deanna then begins to cry. Travis begins to hug her.

DEANNA:
Travis! What are you doing?

TRAVIS:
I?m gay!

DEANNA:
Oh alright then! Continue!
