At Manny's house...

sees Craig standing there. She walks over to him...)
so much for this. I really appreciate it.

At Jay's house...
(Jay is lying down when Alex
wakes up. She looks around.)
man. I didn't just dream it.
Jay- Huh? (He sits up and looks at her.)
go back to bed. I have to leave. (She
gets out of bed.)
Jay- What? We were having fun.
were sleeping for the last eight hours.
on Alex. Don't leave like this. Don't
get all high and mighty or whatever.
last night was a mistake.
Jay- It was
a good mistake though.
not suckering me in again.
Jay- Oh come
on. You know it was. Hot angry sex
it won't be happening again.
said that last time. And the time before that.
Alex- I know. But this time I mean it.
Alex- I do. It won't happen again.
just admit it. You want to be with me but you don't want people to judge you. I get it, okay? I'm bad for you. I'm a bad guy. Can we just move on from
that? I can try to be better. You're
too good to let go.
mom is probably worried about me. (She leaves the room.)
At the Dot...
(Paige and Hazel are drinking
this guy Dylan is setting me up with? What do you know about him?
plays hockey and he's a business major.
does he look like?
Paige- Tall? I'm not really sure hun. It'll be fine. You'll have fun with him and move on.
know. I'm just nervous. It's been
a while since I've been on a date.
do fine. (Pauses.) Tell you what,
we can go shopping to find you a spectacular outfit.
you have plans with Craig today?
don't think so. Let me call him to double check though. (She pulls out her phone and dials.)
honey. I just wanted to check in. See
if we had plans or anything.
Craig- No. Nothing. I gotta go though.
sound kind of nervous. Everything okay?
Craig- Yeah. Everything's fine. I'll talk to you later
though. I have to go.
Paige- Okay. (She hangs up.)
was quick. I was expecting a two hour conversation.
he's doing something.
someone. (Paige glares at her.) I'm
it's not funny.
sure he's just doing guy stuff or something.
Paige- Yeah. Let's go shopping, shall we? (Paige and
(Sean is in the kitchen when
Emma walks in...)
I hear my phone go off?
guy. (Emma nods.) You know, it kind
of sounded like Jimmy Brooks. (Emma looks guilty.) Is that who you're dating?
that be bad?
Sean- It's not like we’re dating or anything. Why would it matter? (Emma shrugs. They are silent for a moment.)
Emma- I should
probably head back to Toronto. I'm sure Liberty doesn't want to stay at that hotel a second longer.
(Sean doesn't respond.) Thanks for everything. (She kisses him on the cheek.) I really appreciate it. (Emma walks towards the door.)
that's it? You come back into my life for one night, and then you're gone?
not like that and you know it. (Pauses.)
Nothing's stopping you from coming back to Toronto. Finish your senior year at Degrassi. (Sean
doesn't respond.) But you don't really want to do that do you?
and Jimmy haven't even broken up yet and you’re trying to convince me to move back to Toronto for something that may never happen.
do that. You know exactly what I'm talking about.
You didn't just come out here to clear your head.
happened last night has nothing to do with us.
Sean- Really? Then why did you drive the four hours to come up here?
Emma- I should
Sean- Why? Why are you ignoring this? (She doesn't
respond.) You know, that's exactly why I don't want to go back. You'll make up with your boyfriend and it'll be like nothing ever happened.
Sean- Yeah. Sure. Keep telling yourself that. (She leaves. Sean kicks the door.)
(Jimmy is holding his phone
when there is a knock on the door. He answers it.
I come in? (Jimmy nods and Ashley walks in.
Jimmy shuts the door behind her. She sits down on the couch.) About last night.
don't have to. I know.
with Emma. I shouldn't have kissed you.
Ashley- Yeah. Yeah. (Pauses.) Did you get a hold of her yet?
Jimmy- No. (Sighs.) I called her though and a guy
answered her phone.
sure you didn't dial the wrong number? Maybe it was a wrong number.
asked the guy if it was Emma's phone. He said yes.
don't think she...
probably didn't. She's a good kid.
good kid that's been in rehab. No telling what she's doing.
do that. You know she's better than that.
Jimmy- Yeah. (They are silent for a moment.)
Jimmy- Go? You just got here.
Ashley- Yeah. But I have stuff I have to go do. I'll
talk to you later though. (She smiles meekly and leaves.)
At the mall...
(Paige and Hazel are looking
at some clothes...)
been really quiet. You okay?
Paige- Yeah. Fine.
was just kidding before about Craig. You know that, right?
Paige- Yeah. It's just...
hate that I keep expecting the worst to happen. Craig is my boyfriend, and I
can't trust him. Something's wrong with that.
Hazel- Yeah. But you guys have fun together. You guys
are a good couple. You guys work.
it's me. Maybe I just can't trust guys.
I mean, look at how it ended with Spinner. And then Matt.
Hazel- You shouldn't have trusted either of them. Spinner wanted
out. And Matt was scum. You were
way too trusting in those relationships. Maybe that's why you can't trust Craig,
because you don't want to get hurt again.
Paige- Maybe. (Hazel holds up a dress.)
not you hun.
At the courthouse...
(Manny is standing outside
with Craig staring.)
know the trial starts in a half hour. You'll have to go in soon.
know. I'm just...I'm scared. What
if nothing happens to him?
get what's coming to him. Come on. Let's
go in. (Manny and Craig walk in.)
In the court...
(Manny and Craig walk in. They see Peter standing at the front of the court room. Peter looks at Manny and smiles. Manny looks nervous. Craig grabs her hand.)
be okay. (Manny nods and they walk further in.)
At a hotel...
(Emma walks to a door and
knocks on it. Liberty
opens the door...)
Emma- Sorry. (She starts to walk away and Liberty
Liberty- That's it? Sorry. Emma, you ditched me last night and then you take forever to get here.
Emma- I didn't
ditch you. You didn't want to go to Sean's last night.

walking.) No. Nothing. Why?
Liberty- You seem really upset.
were right. I shouldn't have come.
Liberty- What happened?
Emma- I reopened
a door I should have left closed.
Liberty- You and Sean? You didn't...did you?
Emma- I don't
want to talk about Sean anymore.
Liberty- You haven't even broken up with Jimmy yet.
do you honestly think that I cheated on my boyfriend?
Liberty- No. But I also didn't think you'd overdose on anti-depressants.
Emma- I just
want to go home. (Liberty
Liberty- Let's go then.
(Marco is sitting in the
living room looking at catalogs when Dylan walks in...)
ever confusing college catalog. Never know what classes to take. When to take them. So overwhelming.
Marco- Yeah. (Sighs.)
fine. Just forced to make choices I don't want to make. (Dylan sits down next
to him and sees a Banting Catalog.)
you have to pay tuition soon?
but I still have no idea.
are your other choices?
Dylan- Oh. (Pauses.) Listen, Marco, if you choose
Banting, we'll still be together. It'll be okay.
And you can come back on weekends and visit. It's only a three hour drive.
about Ellie? She's having my baby.
thought she was giving it up.
Marco- School starts at the end of August. She's
due in September. What if I'm not here to help her?
forgive you. This is your future.
feel like I have to stay here though.
can if you want. And then you can transfer to Banting later, if you want. Don't do something because you have to. Do
it because it's what you want to do and it's right for you.
I forget just how amazing you are. (He kisses him.)
me remind you. (They kiss.)
At the prison...
(Toby is sitting when J.T.
walks over to him...)
you and Ashley visiting I barely have time to spend in my cell.
that a bad thing?
Toby- No. I'm just saying.
and Liberty, I don't think it's going to work.
just...we're not...we don't have it anymore. We aren't us.
she know that? (J.T. shrugs.)
J.T.- I don't
know. But, I came here to see how you are doing.
How is it here?
really changed. (Pauses.) I hate
it. You never really think about prison when you're not in it. It's this place full of awful people who did terrible things, not kids who made stupid mistakes.
J.T.- Yeah. It's weird knowing you're in here. At
least you get to see cool fights and stuff.
fights aren't cool. They're scary. It's
like survival of the fittest and I'm not going to survive.
only have a month and a half left. No one killed you yet. You'll be fine.
up.) I'm really scared. You wake
up here and it's not like home. You wake up and wonder if today is going to be
your last. You wake up and wonder if you're really as bad as everyone else. There are some truly evil people here and I wonder if I'm like them and that's why
not like that. You just screwed up.
have too. You know, you got to experience so much more than I have. You got to date more than one girl. You got to have sex. You had a date to prom. What have I done
in my life? Nothing.
when you get out, you can fix that.
Toby- I don't
know if I can. What if I'm destined to nothing.
if you think like that you are.
Toby- I don't
At the dot...
(Spinner is serving tables
when Alex walks in and sits down. Spinner walks over to her...)
about last night. I'm sorry.
Alex- I bet
got nervous. I mean, with the (Softly.)
Alex- (Softly.) The AIDS thing?
know that I can't get it twice and everything but it's just making me nervous.
Alex- What? You think you're going to catch ebola or something if you have sex with me again?
Spinner- No. I'm just saying. What I did wasn't right
and I'm sorry.
Alex- I came
in here hating you. I wanted to just slap you in the face. You keep abandoning me Spin.
Alex- I had
to come in here to get you to apologize to me. You didn't even have the courage
to come to my house and apologize.
apologizing now. (Alex stands up.)
Alex- I know. And you know what? It's not enough. I thought I wanted to be with you. I
thought you loved me. But I was wrong.
because I didn't sleep with you last night?
Alex- (Softly.) Because you lied to me about taking the test.
There's a lot I can forgive you for, but the fact that you weren't even man enough to take the test and then act like
you had and that you were there for me. That's way worse than anything I've ever
done to you.
than sleeping with your ex-boyfriend and then giving me AIDS? (Alex slaps him. She leaves in tears.)
(Emma pulls up and walks
inside. Spike is standing there...)
have you been? I've been worried sick.
Emma- I told
you I'd be home.
not answering your phone made me nervous. Where did you go?
Liberty on a car ride.
needed to clear our heads.
Spike- Why? What's going on Em? (Emma walks over
to the couch and sits down.)
not happy. (Spike walks over and sits down next to her.)
something happen with you and Jimmy?
Emma- I saw
him flirting with ex-girlfriend and I think he wants to break up with me.
Em. (She hugs her.) I'm sorry.
okay. I'm okay with it. I just hate
is it that I'm not good enough for anyone?
Spike- What? You're perfect.
I'm not. I keep screwing up. I keep
getting dumped. What is so wrong with me that I can't keep a relationship going?
relationships take practice. You're only 17.
You have time to find someone for you.
Emma- I saw
Cameron? (Emma nods.)
Emma- I miss
miss him? (Emma nods.) You guys
broke up like three years ago.
Emma- I know.
he miss you?
Emma- I never
know what's going on in the boy's head.
you and Sean didn't really work, did you? You guys changed.
Emma- I know. I can't help that I still have feelings for him though.
they feelings for him or are they feelings for the past?
do you mean?
had a tough year, maybe you just want things to go back to normal like they were when you were with Sean.
that be a bad thing?
never going to be the same Em.

Spike- Em. It'll be okay. (Emma nods as Spike continues
to hug her.)
At the Dot...

when Ashley walks in. Ashley walks over to her...)
are you doing here?
something to eat.

Ashley- Oh. (She sits down.) Toby's in jail, so I'm
being the supportive sister and I came back.
didn't say you could sit down.
Ash. (Ashley stands up.) How long
have you been back?
you didn't call me.
didn't think you'd want to talk to me.
would have been right. Why didn't you call me back?
didn't really keep in touch. I didn't know what to say to you.
was going through a really rough time. I needed someone to talk to. You should have called me back. That's what friends do.
I guess I'm not a very good friend then. (Ellie doesn't respond.) What? Are you just going to ignore me? I'm here now. We can talk now.
I'll wait seven months before I talk to you again. You know, like you did.
Ashley. (Ellie stands up and walks away.
Ashley looks stunned. Spinner walks over.)
she's pregnant. (Spinner picks up some dishes and walks off. Ashley looks stunned.)
Outside Craig's house...
(Craig and Manny are walking...)
really appreciate this. You have no idea, what this means to me.
I can do to help. (They are silent for a moment.)

know. I just have a bad feeling.

to walk me home.
know. I just, I didn't want to be alone just yet.
you want to come in?
sure Paige wouldn't be too crazy about that.
she doesn't know...
okay. I should probably be getting home anyway.
It's been a long day. (She hugs him.)
Thanks for everything. (She smiles and walks off. Craig watches her. He walks inside.)
Inside Craig's house...
(Craig walks in...)
Craig- Joey? Caitlin? I'm home. (He picks up a note and reads...) Went to look at dinner halls
for wedding. Then dinner. Angie
at grandma's. We'll be back around ten.
(He crumbles up the paper and throws it. He walks into the garage. Paige is standing there.) Paige? How did you get in?
Paige- Key. (Holds up a key.) Remember?
did I see you hug Manny Santos outside?
makes it better?
was thanking me--
Paige- (Interrupting.) For cheating on me with her?
what were you doing with your ex?
going through a rough time. Some guy tried to rape her a couple months back and
I was trying to be supportive.
Paige- Yeah. Sure. Okay. I buy that.
the truth. Nothing's going on.
know Craig, I really care about you. I just don't feel like I can trust you.
don't know why. I've been totally loyal to you the entire time we went out.
when you kissed Manny? When you didn't tell me you were spending the whole day
with her? If you keep hiding things, next thing I know you're going to sleep
with her and I'll be left heartbroken again.
you loved me you wouldn't be hiding everything from me.
not hiding anything from you.
why are you spending all your free time with Manny?
it seems like you just are looking for a reason to break up with me. And if that's
what's going on, then you don't need a reason. Just dump me and get it over with
so we can both move on.
don't want to break up with you.
constantly snapping at me. You keep jumping to crazy conclusions. You won't talk to me about our problems. There's no reason
for me to think that you want to stay with me. (Pauses.) I want to be with you Paige. I love you. Not Manny. Not Ashley.
Not Tyra Banks. No one else but you.
I don't know how many times I can say it before you believe me.

She starts to walk out.)
(Paige stops walking and turns around.)

to her and kisses her passionately.)

Craig. (She leaves. Craig collapses
on to the couch.)
