EXT. DAVE’S PARENT’S HOUSE – NIGHT
Dave and Ally are walking up the front walk to the porch of a tidy suburban house. Dave hangs his head and shoulders as they step to the front door.
ALLYSomeday you’ll laugh about this
Dave. You really will .
DAVEI don’ t want to talk about it. Let’s
just get through this. Okay?
Dave rings the bell.
ALLYAt least you got off without a ticket.
The door opens to reveal Dave’s brother Tyler.
TYLERYou got a ticket? Dude, what’d you
DAVENothing. Just a big
Tyler has already left the door and gone down the front hall.
Mom! Dave got arrested!
From down the hall, we hear Dave’s mother’s shocked response.
MRS. MORGAN (O.C.)What?! Oh David! What have you
There is a COMMOTION from the hall . An older woman is crawling along the edge of the doorway between the foyer and the living room. This is Dave’s GRANDMOTHER. Behind her follows Dave’s mom.
MRS. MORGANMom, stand up. Oh, hi David.
DAVEHi Mom. I’d like you to meet…
GRANDMAWhat are you going to do about this
MRS. MORGANWhat do you mean what are we
going to do? The house is
lovely. Please get up off the floor
DAVEMom? I have someone I want you to
Neither woman is paying any attention to Dave or the guest. Dave shrugs and mouths “I’m sorry” to Ally.
GRANDMAWell they’re different heights.
MRS. MORGANIt’s a quarter of an inch Mom.
GRANDMAYou don’t want it to be uneven. It
shouldn’t have a lip. Someone could
MRS. MORGANWho’s going to trip?
GRANDMAYou could have someone over for
cocktails, and they have Dropfoot.
You know, that disorder where they
can’t lift their feet. Someone with
Dropfoot could fall on
MRS. MORGANOh Honestly Mom. David, can you
help your grandmother to the table
(to Ally)Are you sure you still want to be
Ally takes his hand and leads him in.
ALLYLet’s see how we do until the next
They enter and close the door just as Dave’s mother and aunt come rushing towards them.
INT. DAVE’S AUNT’S HOUSE – NIGHT
Dave, Ally, Tyler, Dave’s parents, Grandma, Dave’s aunt and uncle and his 18 year old cousin Bridget are sitting around the table eating and laughing.
TYLERI just can’ t believe you would walk
away from all that money Ally. I
mean, if I had a job making that
DAVEIf you a job making any money…
TYLERI’m not talking to you Mr. Pornstar.
(to Mrs. Morgan)Why does he keep calling David
ALLYIt’s not about the money, Tyler. It’s
about doing something with my life
that has some meaning for me. I
always wanted to be a singer and I
figured it wasn’t going to happen if I
just waited around for it .
TYLERWell all I know is, you’re not going
to be satisfied by The Professor here
unless he moves beyond selling T-shirts
Dave stands from the table
DAVEI’ve had it . You can talk trash about
me but not my girl friend.
Ally looks shocked by Dave taking such a stand. Tyler is still seated.
MRS. MORGANWell I for one think it is very brave
to start out on a new path like that .
I wish I had decided to do something
I wanted to do when I was your age.
MR. MORGANWhat does that mean?
(with shock)Yeah Ma, what do you mean?
Dave begins to sit down. But just before he is down, Tyler’s phone rings with Dave’s voice.
RECORDED VOICEThis is Mr. Tiny Penis…
Dave launches himself across the table and attacks Tyler in flurry of napkins and cutlery.
INT. DAVE’S APARTMENT – NIGHT
Dave and Ally are sitting on the couch in his apartment. She is applying a cold cloth to a large red mark above his left eye.
ALLYThat was very sweet but I don’t
think we’re quite ready for the
“girl friend/boyfriend” thing.
DAVEApparently I ’m not ready for the
“Ultimate Fighting” thing either.
ALLYIt might have been more effective if
you actually had made contact with
your brother before you pushed your
aunt into the sideboard.
DAVEDo you think she‘s still mad?
ALLYIt depends on how successful the
doctor is reattaching her finger tip.
DAVEI’ve never seen a cat run so fast
with something in it’s mouth.
Now about this girl friend/boyfriend
thing, maybe we shouldn’t get so
hung up on the nomenclature.
DAVEAfter all , I’m just coming out of a
long term relationship,
ALLYWith a bad breakup.
DAVEThe worst .
ALLYAnd I need to focus on my career.
DAVESo you wouldn’t have time for
anything serious anyway.
DAVEThe only thing is Ally, when I’m not
with you, I’m thinking about how
long it is until I am. And when I am
with you, it doesn’t seem to last
Ally moves closer to him.
ALLYSo there’s nothing I can do to make
DAVEI guess not.
ALLYI never figured you for being “High
Ally and Dave kiss.
