Author's Note - I had written this screenplay in 2007. I found it on an old flash drive, and think it's hilariously stupid at some parts. Ohh, what went through my mind at that time... ahhaa... And there's some serious themes in this. I really didn't completely understand it back then... Ehhhh...


Enjoy?

Outsmarted!

CHAPTER 1- LAST DAY OF SCHOOL

Scene 1 Everybody's going crazy because it's the last day of school. There's paper flying everywhere and books all over the floor. It's just insane.

The four nerds were at their lockers, which was side by side, cleaning them out.

O.J.
Look at everyone. It's just sad.

CASSIE
(sad face)
It is sad. I mean, to see everyone excited to be out of school, for the summer.

MADDY
Yeah. I'm going to miss school this summer.

MAE
(clueless look)
I don't know about missing school. I mean, I do enjoy the summer.

They gasped and stared at her.

CASSIE
What do you mean?

O.J.
You like the summer? You could get sunburned. (he gasped)

MAE
(a evil / clueless look)
Yes, but not that much. (she covered her face and turned away)

MADDY
(went to her)
Wait a second. You're up to something, aren't you?

MAE
(a surprising look; she was nervous)
No! I'm not up to anything… um… (sweat ran down her face)

They all just stared at her, with the eyes until she finally cracked.

MAE
(grinds teeth together)
Okay. I'm going to summer camp.

ALL OF THEM
(eyes wide open)
What?!

MAE
(gulps)
My mom is making me. She said that I need to be more socialized.

O.J.
(confused; folds his arms)
What? Socialized? You are. You have friends.

MAE
That's true, but… never mind…

CASSIE
Never mind, what?

MAE
Nothing. (she starts to walk off)

MADDY
(runs after her)
We just want to know.

MAE
(sad face)
You really want to know?

ALL OF THEM
Yes.

MAE
Well… I'm just sick of being a smarty pants. I wanna live life, being cool!

Everyone laughed.

MAE
What? I can't live life?

O.J.
You're book smart, but not life smart. You don't know anything about being cool. Now, me, yes because I was cool once before.

MADDY
(laughs)
When?

O.J.
When I was…

MADDY
See. You can't think of one time.

CASSIE
(has paper in her hand)
Hey, look at this.

Scene 2 They all look at it. It was a flyer for a party that was at night.

MAE
Hey, want to go?

CASSIE
(eyes widen)
Say what?

MAE
I know it sounds weird, but we finally get a change to be cool.

MADDY
Wait, I thought you said you were going to summer camp.

MAE
I am. That's not until two weeks.

O.J.
(excited)
Yeah. Maybe I could be cool again, like… you know… in…

MADDY
O.J., let it go. We know that you weren't or were cool. Whatever!

MAE
So, are you guys in or what?

CASSIE
What're you speaking?

O.J.
I know what she's saying. It's… um… cool talk.

MADDY
(sighs)
O.J., why are you so dumb?

O.J.
I'm smart. I get A's. I'm not dumb.

MADDY
That's what I thought. Stop talking about being cool. (she taps him on the head)

O.J.
Ow! What was that for?

MADDY
(frowns)
It was because… I don't know.

O.J.
You do like me, don't you?

MADDY
(slaps him on the head)
Um… no…

MAE
Okay. Now, guys, do you want to go this party?

O.J.
(excited)
Count me in. Yeah!

MADDY
(sighs)
I guess I have to go now, because I probably have to keep an eye on him.

O.J.
Yep. I know you have your eyes on me.

MADDY
I already told you, I don't like you like that. And by the way, I'm going just because I don't want my friend to get hurt.

O.J.
(he put his arm around her)
Call it whatever you want, baby. I know the real meaning.

MADDY
(pushes him away)
Sounds like you have a crush on me.

O.J.
Oh, I do. I'm just not afraid to admit it, like you.

CASSIE
(to Mae)
Well, I didn't want to go, but now I guess I have to, because of them. They are just like a brother and a sister fighting all the time, or a married couple.

MAE
(laughs)
That's true.

O.J
(to Maddy)
Could you just give me a kiss… on the cheek? Or on the lips?

MADDY
(sighs)
Oh my gosh. I got to go. See you later. (she walks off)

O.J.
(yelled to her)
Yeah, later… on a date. (he laughs)

Cassie and Mae rolled their eyes and walked off.
