PSA Script

For my T.V. Writing class

I kinda like it

int. classroom – day

Five students sit and quitely observe as the TEACHER writes on the blackboard. In large letters on the top of the blackboard is JERSEY SHORE and underneath is CHARACTER ANALYSIS. All but one of the students are taking notes on the lecture. The SMART STUDENT sits the the center of class looking confused.

TEACHER

(Jersey Accent)

Yeah so, who can tell me the Situation’s motivation for hooking up with that broad?

SMART STUDENT

Wait… what?

The student next to SMART STUDENT raises his hand and TEACHER calls on him.

TEACHER

Yeah, Christopha what do you think, huh?

CHRISTOPHER

Umm… yeah… his motivation was to uhhh…. GET IT IN BRA!

At this the class breaks out into uproarious laughter, excluding SMART STUDENT.

TEACHER

(laughing obnoxiously)

You got it man!

The TEACHER goes over and offers CHRISTOPHER a high five.

CHRISTOPHER

(high fiving TEACHER)

Yeah boy, I kicked that question’s ass!!!

SMART STUDENT

(objecting)

Wait, are you kidding me? Is this serious?

CHRISTOPHER

Hell yeah, bra!

SMART STUDENT

That’s just stupid man, you guys are idiots.

TEACHER

(like a child)

Nu-uh, you’re the idiot, idiot.

SMART STUDENT

(calmly)

Can you even spell idiot?

TEACHER

Yeah, duh of course I can, idiot.

The TEACHER pauses and looks up thoughtfully. It slowly turns to a blank stare and then he grows upset.

TEACHER

(angrily)

Oh yeah, smart guy? I don’t need to, I’m the teacher. You fail. Not so tough now are ya?

SMART STUDENT

Are you kidding me?

CHRISTOPHER

That sucks Bra!!

SMART STUDENT

To hell with this crap. I’m getting out of here.

SMART STUDENT stand and walks out and slams the classroom door. Everyone left in the class is left laughing on the floor.

EXT. Park-day-sunny

SMART STUDENT walks to a bench and sits. He opens his back pack and pulls a copy of ON THE ROAD by JACK KEROUAC. He opens it and begins reading. Slowly his angry expression fades to peaceful smile. He sighs with relief and turns the page.
