An Exposition: Act III

1 - Int. Car - Afternoon - 1

SAM drives again, JED sits shotgun.

On Screen: ACT III: The Break Even

SAM
January 30, 2:30. We're heading over to Jesse's right now, my friend here is Jed Thompson. Jed, say hi.

JED
Hi.

SAM
Jesse is single now. He's not dating Meg because he said he needed some time to think about things. We're going to teach him a lesson for hurting me the way he did, aren't we, Jed? Say we are.

JED
We are.

SAM
So Jed called saying he needed help with Physics, but after he rings the doorbell, Jesse's going to come out and I'm going to beat the (bleep) out of him.

SAM pulls the car over.

SAM
We better not get closer to his house, or he'll see who drove you.

SAM and JED get out.

SAM
Jed, take the camera.

JED reaches in and takes the camera.

SAM
Turn it off while we're walking.

2 - Ext. JESSE's House - Afternoon - 2

JED
Okay, we're back on.

SAM hides by the door. JED films, out of the frame.

SAM
Ready?

JED
Ready.

He goes up to the door and rings the doorbell. He films the door.

SAM (off-screen, whispering)
Hide the camera! Hide the camera!

JED puts the camera behind his back.

Off-screen, JESSE opens the door.

JESSE
Hey, Jed!

JED
Hey.

There is silence.

JESSE (wondering what's up)
Do you want to come inside?

JED
Why don't you come outside for a second?

JESSE
Er - why?

JED
It's a nice day.

JESSE is silent, then:

JESSE
Is Sam out there?

JED (under JESSE)
No!

JESSE
Yes he is! Sam, what the hell, man? Why are you hiding?

SAM
I'm not hiding. I'm waiting - to kick your ass.

JED steps back and starts filming again. JESSE steps outside. SAM stands nearby, looking apprehensive but trying to be determined.

JESSE
Sam, I'm sorry. I just - I'm sorry you got hurt. You can hit me if you want.

SAM
You broke my girlfriend's heart, and then broke my new girlfriend's heart!

JESSE
Are you mad about that, though, or are you just mad you don't have Meredith?

SAM
No! It's not her! I don't even care about her.

JESSE
Why not? I thought that was the big problem.

SAM
There's someone else anyways.

JESSE steps forward.

JESSE
Who? Meg?

SAM
No, Jesse! It's -

He freezes and stares JESSE in the eyes. His face softens. He goes for it.

Cut to black. Music plays. Credits roll.

End.
