EXT. DELTA CHI PI FRAT HOUSE - NIGHT
The frat’s front door spits out BRYCE, a fair-haired athletic hunk, along with painfully loud electronic music. Before he slams the door closed, we get a glimpse of the roaring party within. Bryce holds his cell to his ear.
BRYCE (into cell)
INT. BRYCE’S PARENT’S OUT-DATED KITCHEN - NIGHT
BRYCE’S MOM holds a wall phone receiver to her ear. Bryce’s GRAMMY and GRAMPY are planted on either side of her, their ears reaching for the receiver. Grampy’s sweatshirt has a Thanksgiving turkey on it with the phrase, "Born to Be Wild."
BRYCE’S MOM Bryce honey, is that you?
Intercut between Bryce’s Mom and Bryce.
BRYCE Yeah, it’s me, Ma.
BRYCE’S MOM Honey, Grammy and Gramps just got
here. When can we expect you?
Before she finishes, the frat’s front door spits out more loud music along with a brunette co-ed, DANIKA. Bryce motions for her to shut the door. She breezes past him.
BRYCE (into cell)
Thursday, prolly ’bout when you’re takin’ out the turkey. Gotta go, Ma. See ya. (after Danika) Danny, wait up!
to face him, walking backwards and away.
DANIKA I’ve gotta finish my paper. (with
emphasis) So do you. Come with?
A FRAT BRO yells to Bryce from the front steps, where now there’s a bulge of PARTIERS.
FRAT BRO Steelers 7, Cowboys 27. Pay and
party up, dude!
With disapproval, Danika turns her back to Bryce and continues on her way. Bryce, sporting a Steelers jersey, is visibly torn. He chooses the party.
EXT. DELTA CHI PI FRAT HOUSE - NEXT MORNING Bryce bursts out from the frat, zigzagging through the
lawn’s obstacle course
EXT. DELTA CHI PI FRAT FRAT HOUSE
Bryce runs towards one classes disperse.
INT. COLLEGE CLASSROOM
of used party paraphernalia. HOUSE - VIEW OF COLLEGE CAMPUS FROM of the campus’s brick buildings as
Bryce dashes into the classroom where only PROFESSOR RIKEL remains. She’s erasing the whiteboard except for the title of the class which is, "Comparative Politics." He approaches her holding out to her his paper as if it’s a peace offering.
BRYCE Vietnam War/Iraq War.
The professor can’t take her eyes off Bryce’s appearance. His Steelers jersey is on inside out with the size tag in prominent view. Worse, his beautiful blonde locks are butchered and what remains is a poorly conceived MOHAWK.
BRYCE (truly miffed)
The professor lifts Bryce’s cell phone from his other hand, snaps a picture of him with it and hands it back for his view. He gasps.
BRYCE He’s intrigued but way more concerned about his paper.
BRYCE Professor Rikel, like, it’s my best
work. I like got it done days ago, that’s not why I’m late...
PROFESSOR RIKEL You’re not late, you’re too late,
Bryce. There’s a difference. And while I appreciate that you did do the assignment, I cannot accept a late paper. Class ended 5 minutes ago.
tests from her desk, hands him the one with the SMASH CUT TO:
EXT. DELTA CHI PI FRAT HOUSE UPPER WINDOW- LATER
The frat house window bows as we HEAR Bryce’s voice boom from within:
BRYCE’S VOICE Probation??!!
INT. VW RABBIT
Danika looks up at the frat window where she thinks she’s heard something but can’t be sure. Growing impatient, she taps the frayed steering wheel.
INT. DELTA CHI PI FRAT HOUSE
We’re brought to a foreboding wooden door with the ominous signage, "Standards Committee." The door creaks ajar and a shamefaced Bryce steps out into the living room where an angry mob of BROS wearing DELTA CHI PI BEANIES stand with their arms crossed.
ANGRY BRO #1 (to Bryce, accusingly)
Way to go, Tonto!
Two AMERICAN INDIAN BROS sporting mohawks like Bryce’s look menacingly at Angry Bro #1.
ANGRY BRO #1 (acquiescently)
I’m just sayin’...
She lifts big fat "F" on it.
The Bros raise their "Resign" signs and chant.
BROS Resign, resign, resign...
EXT. DELTA CHI PI FRAT HOUSE - CONTINUING
The rusted white VW Rabbit hiccuping plumes of black smoke from its tailpipe awaits along the curb. A suitcase is strapped on its roof. It must be Danika’s car. We HEAR her car horn blow.
INT. VW RABBIT
Danika looks up from the car she is shocked to SEE...
EXT. DELTA CHI PI FRAT HOUSE
horn and out the window where
...Bryce running towards her in tow. He motions for her to start driving. Confused, she shifts into first and the Rabbit rolls forward.
EXT. FRAT ROW ROAD Bryce catches up to
INT. RABBIT Driving, Danika and
the Rabbit, leans in.
Bryce struggle to get him into the car forward.
DANIKA What’s going on?
BRYCE They put me on academic probation
and the rule is if one of us is on probation, the rest of the fraternity suffers too...
car with the angry mob of Bros
Danika’s hand slips. Bryce doesn’t make it into the car. He runs along side the car, leans in again.
BRYCE (CONTINUES) ...Like because of me they won’t be
allowed to host or attend parties...
He makes it safely into the passenger seat. Buckles in.
BRYCE ...Not until I either resign or get
my grades up. Danika looks out the rear view window.
EXT. FRAT ROW ROAD
Danika’s POV: The "mob" is hot on their trail still brandishing their "Resign" signs.
DANIKA’S VOICE Nice. One more reason to hate frat
boys... as though I needed one.
Danika steps on it. The Rabbit’s black trail of pollutants knocks down the Bros like falling bowling ball pins.
EXT. CITY BRIDGE - SUNSET
The Rabbit’s silhouette crosses a city bridge. Putt, putt, putt...
EXT. FREEWAY - SUNRISE
The Rabbit scoots a little behind the flow of traffic. Putt, putt, putt...
EXT. BRYCE’S NEIGHBORHOOD STREET - AFTERNOON The Rabbit putt, putt, putts up to a small Midwest house.
INT. RABBIT Bryce shuts down the car. Danika awakens.
BRYCE Danny, I figured out how to get my
grades up before semester’s end.
DANIKA Stop the partying?
BRYCE Yeah. That, too.
BRYCE (CONTINUES) What I haven’t figured out is the
speech I gotta give to my fraternity’s "Standards Committee." I gotta present to them some kinda behavior plan. They only gave me a week to prepare.
DANIKA "Standards Committee?"
BRYCE There like the 5 Bros in our
chapter who enforce our by-laws.
DANIKA They’re that important to you?
Yeah. Bryce points across the way.
BRYCE (CONTINUES) I don’t wanna let them down,
either. Danika looks to where he points.
EXT. BRYCE’S PARENTS FRONT PORCH - CONTINUING
Bryce’s MOM, DAD, GRAMMY and GRAMPS, all sporting DELTA CHI PI BEANIES, stand on the porch happily waving big circles for Bryce and Danika join them. The teenage sister, MARY, however; looks constipated... think, Jeaneane Garofalo.
INT. BRYCE’S PARENT’S DINING ROOM
Everyone sits around a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, unsure of what to think of Bryce’s mohawk... except sullen Mary.
MARY Welcome home, Tonto.
BRYCE’S MOM Mary’s the only one without a lick of food on her plate.
BRYCE’S MOM Eat, honey. You’ll feel better.
MARY You know I don’t "do" holiday food.
An awkward moment as everybody looks at the visitor to catch her reaction. Danika pretends not to notice. Instead, she spends exorbitant time cutting her next turkey bite.
BRYCE’S DAD, known as Mr. Butters the town’s school bus driver, breaks the silence.
BRYCE’S DAD (proudly)
So, son, how are you doing in school?
Danika looks up at Bryce, followed by everyone else. Stalling, Bryce drinks from his water goblet.
At this point, we transition to our ACTIVITY within the Lesson Introduction. Given several speaker (Bryce) preparations, and several audience types (Bryce’s mom, dad, grammy, grampy, younger sister, and girlfriend, we ask the students to pick which of Bryce’s responses is appropriate for whom.
