Excuse me, I think you dropped this.

JOHN runs up behind JEAN and hands her a folder that dropped from her stack as she rushed across campus.

JEAN

Oh, thanks.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN modestly takes it, almost embarrassed. JOHN smiles at her sympathetically.

JOHN

Hey, it happens!

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN is tall and fit, dressing in a t-shirt and jeans. His shoes are sloppily tied and his hair is a mess, but it fits his demeanor. JEAN is shy and timid, wearing a lose sweater and jeans. She barely makes eye contact with JOHN, almost flattered by him.

JOHN (CONT'D)

Well, my name is John, yours?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN extends a hand to shake.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN

Jean, and thanks.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN fumbles with her stack in her arms and graciously shakes his hand. She smiles and brushes hair from her face. JOHN notices how beautiful she really is.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN

Well Jean, um, listen excuse me if this is too forward, but I would like to hang out sometime. Would you like to?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN is thrown off guard. She looks away sheepishly and give it a thought of consideration. JEAN whips her head back quickly with a slightly comforting look. With a graceful smile, she nods at JOHN.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN (CONT'D)

Great! So, can I get your number?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN again adjust her stack of books in her arms and digs through her purse for a pen. JOHN extends a pen in front of her face and she laughs a little to herself.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN

Thanks.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN grabs JOHN's hand and scribbles her name and number on the back of it. She smiles at him and runs off, JOHN feeling good about himself smiles too.

EXT- CAR- NIGHT

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN and JEAN are driving down the road late at night. They have been dating for six months and are somewhat quiet in the car. JEAN stares out the passenger's side window at the night sky. With a perplexed look she looks over at JOHN who is staring straight ahead with a satisfied look on his face.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN (CONT'D)

John, did you know that as of tonight, we have been seeing each other for exactly six months?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

There's a silence in the car. JEAN looks back out the window with a worried look.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN (V.O)

Wow, I wonder if that bothered him. Maybe he's been feeling trapped or confined by our relationship. I hope he doesn't think I am trying to force a responsibility on him he doesn't want.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN (V.O.)

Alright, six months!

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN (V.O)

Do I even want this kind of relationship? Sometimes I feel a little confined, maybe I need space. With more space I could really think about whether or not I want to keep going the way we are going. I mean, where are we going? Is this it? Are we just going to see each other at this level of intimacy or is there something more? Marriage? Kids? Do I want this kind of commitment? How well do I even know him?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN stares blankly at her ring finger and back at JOHN who still is keeping an eye on the road.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN (V.O.)

Alright, six months. Let's see, I guess that means we started dating back in October...when was the last time I got my tires checked? Hmm...my levels were checked two months ago, so everything should be okay...

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

Suddenly the coolant light comes on the dashboard. JOHN looks upset.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009 2 versions.

JOHN (V.O.) (CONT'D)

Coolant?!

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN (V.O)

Aww, he looks upset. I hope he isn't reading this the wrong way. Maybe he wants more! More commintment. Intamacy. Marriage. Kids. Maybe he knows that I have been feeling some reservations. That has to be it.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009 2 versions.

JEAN stares at JOHN with a sweet smile.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN (V.O) (CONT'D)

That's why he's so reluctant to say anything about his own feelings, he is just afraid of being rejected.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN (V.O.)

Those thieves! They said everything should be fine! Of course they told me that, that way I would HAVE to come in sooner. And here I paid them $200 for all that work last time...thieves.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN (V.O)

Now he's angry. And who can blame him? I know I'd be angry too. Why did I have to put him through this, but this is the way I feel. I'm just not sure about anyhting anymore.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN (V.O.)

They are going to say it's all my fault. Somehow this is going to be blamed on me, jerks. They will say there is no refunds.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN is fuming with anger. JEAN has tears in her eyes.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN (V.O)

Maybe I am just too idealistic. I am just waiting for a knight to come riding up on his horse, when I have a really good person sitting right next to me. A person I really enjoy being with and being close too, and a person who rally cares about me. And I am hurting this person because of my stupid little fantasies.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

John (V.O.)

Yeah right, no refunds. Don't fix my car. Not give me a refund, yeah I'll stick the refund right up their-

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN

John?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN snaps back to reality and looks at JEAN startled.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

John (V.O.)

What?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN

Please don't hurt yourself like this. I know I shouldn't have...I feel so...

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN begins to cry. JOHN is puzzled and scared.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN

What?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN

I'm so stupid! I know there is no knight on a horse. I know that!

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN

No night? Horse?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN leans forward and looks at the night sky through the windshield.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN

You think I'm selfish and dumb, don't you?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN

NO!

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN says playing it safe.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN

I think...I think I need more time...

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN sits for a minutes staring straight ahead. His mind begins to race.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN (V.O.)

Think! What is she talking about. Say something, she's staring at you, say anything. Hurry!

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN

Uh, sure?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN breathes a sigh of relief.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN

You really feel that way?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN

What way?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009 2 versions.

JEAN

About time.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN glances at the clock on the dashboard.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN

No, well, yes. I guess?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN smiles with tears.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN

Thanks for being so great, John.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

The car pulls up in front of JEAN's house. Together the two walk the door in silence. At the door JEAN looks at JOHN and gives him a big hug.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN (CONT'D)

Goodnight, John.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JEAN opens the door and walk in. JOHN stand on the front porch still curious about the situation.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

John (V.O.)

Well, no sex tonight then...

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN drives off in his car. JEAN is in her room on the phone with some girlfriends who debate and talk about what just happened till all hours of the night. JOHN is at home and sits down and watches an old golf match on TV and falls asleep.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN

How long have you known Jean, Gary?

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

GARY

All my life. She's my sister.

mightymatt - on 04/13/2009

JOHN

Has she ever mentioned anything about a horse at night to you?
