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.
Yeah so, who can tell me the Situation’s motivation for hooking up with that broad?
The student next to SMART STUDENT raises his hand and TEACHER calls on him.
Yeah, Christopha what do you think, huh?
Umm… yeah… his motivation was to uhhh…. GET IT IN BRA!
At this the class breaks out into uproarious laughter, excluding SMART STUDENT.
You got it man!
The TEACHER goes over and offers CHRISTOPHER a high five.
(high fiving TEACHER)
Yeah boy, I kicked that question’s ass!!!
Wait, are you kidding me? Is this serious?
Hell yeah, bra!
That’s just stupid man, you guys are idiots.
(like a child)
Nu-uh, you’re the idiot, idiot.
Can you even spell idiot?
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.
Oh yeah, smart guy? I don’t need to, I’m the teacher. You fail. Not so tough now are ya?
Are you kidding me?
That sucks Bra!!
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.
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.
