--Part 7---It Was You---
[They didn't find Matt yet, but they are still looking.]
(ALL FACES CAMERA:
"I hope we find my brother. I'd be sad if we didn't."
"Matt's such a good kid, so why would he run away?"
"Matt's my best friend. I wouldn't stay mad at him forever."
"Matt's just a good kid and friend."
"Even though he called me dumb, Matt's a pretty neat buddy to have around."
"He is a cool dude, even though I pick on him.
"I only pick on Matt because I'm jealous on him and don't know why."
"Even though he picks on me, I would still forgive him if we found him."
"Ok, I admit, I do have a crush on Matt. He's so cute! WE have to find
MAX (talking in the cool-way):

[Later they had found Matt.]
"In the shed? You ran away to your own shed?"
[wipe tears from eyes]
"I didn't know where to go... except here."
"And plus, it's better than being hated by everyone."
"I'm better off deceased! Or better I wish I wasn't even born!"
"Don't talk like that."
"Not living; dead."
"But Matt, if you weren't born I wouldn't be your brother."
"Remember? You begged and begged to have a brother, so you would not be
lonely with just a sister. I was adopted."
"I don't remember that, but I do some."
"Well, I remember all, bro."
[He patted Matt on the back.]
"If you weren't born, I wouldn't have anybody to tease, play, and have fun
with, because I would be an only child."
"If you weren't born, I wouldn't be your best friend. And I would miss that
because it was you who showed me what good friends we are."
"If you weren't born, I wouldn't have anyone to pick on. However, Drew and
me picked on you because we were jealous. You're a guy, Matt."
"If you weren't born, I wouldn't be able to talk about you in a good way
"Yeah, what Kay said. I wouldn't be able to talk about you either. Matt,
you are a great friend and I like you, but not as much as I like Todd."
[Kari walked over to Todd and smiled.]
MAX (To Matt):
"And if you weren't born, I would probably be you sisters boyfriend, but
who would I play video games with? Matt, you're such a great guy and you
rule at video games."
MAX (To Lassi):
"Lassi, I miss you and I'm sorry I broke your heart. If you would just come
back into my life, I promise I will not break your heart anymore. I love
you, Lassi. And I am only asking for one more chance to be with you, the
one meant for me. Please, would you give me one more chance?"
[It was quiet when Lassi was thinking.]
[Lassi walked over to Max.]
"Yes. Yes, Max, I would love to give you one more chance. I love you!"
[Lassi hugged Max as tears of joy ran down her face.]
(LASSI FACES THE CAMERA):
"Thanks God for sending me my angel back to me."-Lassi thought.
[The dad and mom went to Matt.]
"See Matt, we do care about you."
"You're our special, almost perfect child. Most important, we all love
[Matt just smiled at them.]
(SONG PLAYS, IT WAS YOU)
[A FEW WEEKS LATER:
[Max and Lassi are still going out and promise to keep it like that
forever. Kari asked Todd if he wanted to go out and he said yes. Kari is so
glad. And for Matt, he promises to never run away again. If he's feeling
down, he would come right to his parents, friends, brother, sister, and
people who care about him.]
----Matt is playing basketball with his friends. (He looks at the camera
and gives a thumb-up.)
