[INt. School hallway - day]

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

BEGIN TITLES. We see a teacher, MR. HALL, walking down the hallway with papers in his hands and we get a shot behind his back peering over his shoulder. He greets the other teachers that pass him, but he's still walking briskly, clearly concentrated on his destination. The TITLES CLOSE as Mr. Hall opens a door to the main office, greets his co-workers, and turns to walk into a room seeing two students sitting in their desks.

Mr. hall

Okay, I'm not spending all day explaining why you're in here. You know why and frankly I'm pretty disappointed in you. Both of you.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

One of the two students, RICK, shifts in his seat already tired of the lecture they're about to be given. JIM straightens up to speak.

JIM

Mr. Hall, the writings on the bathroom weren't me and I'm serious about this --

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Mr. Hall cuts him off.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Mr. hall

Listen, I don't care. You've told that story numerous times before, it doesn't matter! You were caught and now you're in here.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014 2 versions.

Hall takes the papers that he was carrying and hands them to the students, splitting the stack.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Mr. hall (CONT'D)

Alright, now this is your homework for the day. You've got your Geometry, Biology, and Personal Econ. Rick, you have Spanish in addition to this but your teacher told me you just have to work on your fluency so...I don't know...just talk to yourself out loud or something. In Spanish. Obviously.

Rick and Jim give each other 'kill me' looks.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

mr. hall (CONT'D)

Sooo, I'll leave you guys here and I'm going to go do some of my work that you two pulled me out of. Don't mess around and behave, alright?

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Mr. Hall leaves quickly, obviously hurried. Jim and Rick both sit back in their seats, frustrated.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

JIM

I hate you.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Rick

Like it's my fault.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Jim

It is your fault! If you hadn't of written those threats in the stall I wouldn't be here!

KScheper03 - on 05/08/2014 2 versions.

Rick

Maybe you shouldn't have been in the bathroom at that point in time.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Rick grunts as if he has something to say, but leans over his desk and starts to work on his papers, ignoring Jim.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Jim (exasperated)

Jesus, man. Fine, whatever.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Time passes. The hands on the clock change from 3:10 to 3:57. Two more hours of detention to go. We see Jim and Rick again now, but Jim is passed out on his desk snoring. Small wads of paper hit the sides of Jim's head, but he doesn't move.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Rick (whispering)

Jim...Jim?

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Rick throws a pencil, and hits Jim right in the eyelid. He wakes up startled and drowsy.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014 2 versions.

Jim (in pain)

Dude, what the hell?

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

rick

Sorry man, I wasn't aiming for your face...but do you have a calculator?

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Jim

No, I don't have a calculator. Jesus Christ, that hurts.

He looks up and blinks rapidly, trying to focus. It's clear that he's having a bit of trouble.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Jim (CONT'D)

I can barely frigging see!

Down the hall in the distance we get a fuzzy, out of focus view of two people struggling. One is evidently a woman, and she screams.

woman

GET OFF OF ME!

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

[Int. school conference room - day]

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Jim and Rick sit up, paying attention to the sounds in the hallway.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Rick

What was that about?

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Jim

I don't know. Some jock probably went too far and the girl got tired of it.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014 2 versions.

Rick shrugs, and looks at the clock. 4:03. Laying himself down on his desk, he closes his eyes. His nap is interrupted quickly by the sound of his stomach growling.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014 2 versions.

jim (CONT'D)

Someone's hungry.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

rick

Yeah...I might go and grab something from the vending machine.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

JIM

I don't think that's the brightest idea, Rick. That's a ways away and what if someone catches you?

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Rick

Eh, I'll be quick about it.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Rick gets up from his desk and heads toward the door.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

[int. school hallway - day]

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

We see the same shot in the hallway as before except this time there's nothing but the woman laying on the ground, silent. A 180 degree pan of the hallway reveals a man slouched over, walking slowly towards the conference room door.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

[int. school conference room - day]

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Rick stops just before the door and checks his pocket.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

rick (groans)

Jim, can you spare two bucks?

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Jim

Not a chance.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

A dull thud makes both of them study the door more closely.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

jim (CONT'D)

The hell is going on out there?

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014

Jim gets up and goes to inspect the door. What he sees makes him uneasy. Out the window just outside the door there's a man face-down crawling and scratching the floor with his hands. A basketball bounces away, implying that he stepped on the ball and lost his balance.

KScheper03 - on 05/07/2014 2 versions.

rick

Looks like that guy tripped or something.

KScheper03 - on 05/08/2014

jim

I'm pretty impressed because there's nothing TO trip on in the hallway.

KScheper03 - on 05/08/2014

They study the man for a while, before he stops moving.

KScheper03 - on 05/08/2014

rick

He's not moving...

KScheper03 - on 05/08/2014

jim

Yeah, I'm gonna go out there.

KScheper03 - on 05/08/2014

Jim opens the door and takes two steps into the hall before wincing and covering his face with his arm.

KScheper03 - on 05/08/2014

jim (CONT'D)

Oh my God, smells like shit!

KScheper03 - on 05/08/2014

The man on the floor groans and shifts on the floor. His breathing is deep and rattly, and his movements seem weak.

KScheper03 - on 05/08/2014

jim (CONT'D)

Hey, you don't sound good. Do you need help?
