(At School, Craig comes in late)
SPINNER: Craig...um, why the delay?
CRAIG: I overslept. That’s it.
SPINNER: Okay. So I’m sorry...About Ashley.
CRAIG: It’s okay. I’m fine. I hate her anyway.
(Spinner looks confused)
SPINNER: Are you feeling okay?
CRAIG: Now that she's gone...I’ve never been better.
(In The Cafeteria, Ellie sits down)
MARCO: So...Glad to have you in the band.
ELLIE: I know. It’s gonna be great.
CRAIG: You're a much better addition than Ashley.
MARCO: Another Ash reference?
ELLIE: Sounds like you miss her.
CRAIG: What are you talking about?I never want to see her
(He gets up and walks away)
(In The Washroom, Hazel is washing her hands)
HAZEL: I’m taking Jimmy out to eat this Saturday. Where
do you think we should go?
PAIGE:Um, Nowhere! We’re supposed to have a spirit squad
HAZEL: I cant make it.
PAIGE: You have to be there Hazel. You can’t miss the
HAZEL:I said no Paige. My boyfriend needs me.
PAIGE: I, your best friend is the only one that needs you!
You're the best, well, second best on the squad!
(Hazel shakes her head)
PAIGE: What are you saying?!
HAZEL: If you cant deal with me missing one meeting, then
PAIGE : HAZEL!
HAZEL: While were on the subject, leave me the hell alone.
(She leaves the washroom and slams the door)
(In the Hall, Hazel is getting her books from her locker)
(Darcy walks up)
DARCY: Did you hear Paige-
HAZEL: What about her?
DARCY: She wants us to meet...Saturday.
HAZEL: Yeah well that’s for the spirit squad.
DARCY: Your point?
HAZEL: My point is I’m not on the squad, therefore I’m
HAZEL: That’s right. I need a new life. One without
Paige and her bitchiness.
(Hazel starts to walk away)
DARCY: Hazel you cant just quit.
HAZEL: Cry me a river.
(Craig is in his garage writing a song)
CRAIG: Don’t know why we can’t just turn the pages
back to the start
(Ellie walks in)
(She sits down and drums for a second)
ELLIE: Do you love me do you really love me?
CRAIG: Yeah...It’s great.
ELLIE: What’s wrong?
CRAIG: Nothing..just in a emotional stage for a song.
ELLIE: Really? Will you sing it?
(Craig hesitates then nods)
(He picks up his guitar)
CRAIG:I know that you're mine now. I know there’s nothing
left to cry about, but I just can’t imagine waking up every morning to a different day. You are a part of me that’s
new in every way. I just want to know why we can’t just turn back the pages to the start of the book that is our
forever existence. But you’re not here and I cant go the distance. But let my words travel to you....
(He sits his guitar down)
CRAIG: That’s all I have now.
(Ellie walks over to him and kisses him)
(She starts to cry and runs out of the garage)
(At school the next day)
MARCO: I’m sure he likes you...I just don’t think
he's gotten over Ashley.
MARCO: He's trying to avoid it.
ELLIE: So how long do you think this will last?
MARCO: As long as it takes..for him to be satisfied.

TOBY: After the Middle Ages ended, and before the Renaissance,
(The bell rings)
(The class packs their things and leaves class)
the reason anyway to have a quiz everyday?

think I’d be still in Jr. High.
(Manny runs up)
MANNY: Emma!I have to-
(She bumps into hazel and Hazel spills a drink on herself

(Hazel pours the rest out on Manny)
(Emma gasps and Manny pushes Hazel)
(Mrs.H runs up)
MRS.H: Girls is there a problem?
HAZEL: Yes, Paris Hilton here nearly knocked me down running
through the hall.
MRS H: I’m sure she didn’t mean to. Did you Manny?
(She looks at her and Manny shakes her head)
MRS H: Well everyone get back to class.
(She walks away)
(The next day Manny walks in the gym to the spirit squad meeting)
PAIGE: What are you doing here? You’re fired remember.
MANNY: It’s about Hazel.
(Paige gets up and steps out of the gym with Hazel)
PAIGE: You have 2 minutes.
MANNY: Is something wrong with her?
PAIGE: What are you talking about?
MANNY: She’s been acting strangely.
PAIGE: She quit the squad.
PAIGE: It’s none of your business, is it?
MANNY: I’m just concerned.
PAIGE: Her parents are getting divorced. She’s in the
"I hate the world" state of mind.
PAIGE: It'll blow over...In a few months.
