(COREY and DREW enter the high school. All eyes are directly at them. Girls flirtatiously smiled and guys gawked in envy.)
DREW-(Voiceover) Never thought I’d be in this position. A few days ago I worried about competing for a high school talent show with winnings of a couple hundred dollars.
COREY-(Voiceover) This is weird. Everyone’s staring at us. (Looks at DREW.) This guy who was at his wit’s end at a talent show is now my partner in a multi-million dollar record deal.
DREW-(Voiceover) Now I’m part of a multi-million dollar record deal…(Looks at COREY) All because of him…without him, we would’ve choked at the talent show.
COREY-(Voiceover) Without HIM, I would’ve looked like an idiot up there on stage, ruining my rep in the theatre and this school. (Two girls come up to DREW and COREY.)
MARTY-Hey, what are you two doing Friday night?
VERONICA-Would you wanna double date with us? (She bites her lip.) It’ll be fun.
MARTY-You don’t need to answer now.
MARTY-Here’s our number. (Hands a piece of paper to them.) Just let us know.
VERONICE-I hope we hear from you soon. (They giggle and run off.)
DREW-Uh-uhm…thanks? (COREY looks at the number, sighs and just stuffs it into his pocket.)
COREY-Nice girls…(Walks away.)
DREW-Whoa, wait. Come back here.(Catches up.) What’s wrong with you?
COREY-Huh? Oh…uh…well, you know…Mondays…
DREW-Mondays…? I have a feeling it has nothing to do with the day of the week.
COREY-What do you mean?
DREW-I mean, if I’m correct, you were one of those people who I absolutely hated because you tried to shove Mondays down everyone’s throats.
DREW-Bullshit! (Steps in front of COREY.)
DREW-You’ve acted so differently since the talent show Friday. Are you alright?
COREY-Yeah, I’m fine.
DREW-I don’t believe you. Look, if we’re gonna do this record deal, we need to learn enough about each other or otherwise…it’ll be useless.
COREY-(Pauses)….really, I’m fine…(He pushes DREW aside and walks away.)
DREW-Well…uh, call me later? (COREY raises his arm with “thumbs up”.)
