Episode 7: The Argument
[Scene: Main Hall] [At that point after lunch, there's basically a figgin recess going on in the Hall.] [History can be seen in a corner, leaning on a wall.]
[Note: Anything in parentheses is in German.]
History: (this is always happening to me. and I thought that gamma were my friends. )
[Drama picks up on this German speaking, and replies.]
Drama: (It's okay. Everyone feels so at one point.)
History: (Whoa. You speak German?)
Drama: (My accent is not for the show)
History: (To be honest, it sounded like an Australian-Irish try to fake a German-Hungarian accent)
[Art hears the foreign conversation, and interrupts]
Art: Hey, Drama.
Art: What are you two doing?
Drama: (Bonding with friends)
History: Bonding amongst friends.
Art: Alright, cool
[Art starts to walk away]
Drama: Hey, look this way ...!
Art: * turns around * Yeah?
Drama: (will you go out with me?)
Drama: (will you go out with me?)
Art: Yeah, sure, whatever * leaves *
Drama: * Turns to History, smiling * (Well, that's how you play the game! You should try!)
[Writing and Reading can be seen chatting, awkwardly.]
Art: Oh, hey, you two.
Reading: Hey, Art.
Reading: Have you two met? No? This is my sister, Writing. She's amazing. Perfect.
Writing: Uh. Hi. I'm Writing. Disregard the "amazing" and "perfect" stuff.
Art: Come on, you shouldn't put yourself down like that. I take it a lot of people have a high opinion of you.
Reading: Ooohh, yes. Everyone pre-Learnhouse thought she was perfect!
Writing: Well, I'm sure that there are others "better" than me…
[In the distance, History can be heard shouting:]
HISTORY: (IT'S NOT MY FAULT THAT NO ONE LIKES ME!)
DRAMA: (ACTUALLY, IT KIND OF IS!)
HISTORY: (WAIT, WHY ARE WE OFF THE MAIN TOPIC?)
Drama: (What were we talking about?)
History: (Not now, Drama. Everybody's listening now.)
Drama: (Oh, WAIT, I remember. It was about READING.)
History: (Let's not... dwell on the past...)
Drama: (Perhaps I should tell her about YOUR FEELINGS FOR HER.)
History: *starts laughing*
History: You just tried to humiliate me, but you used the wrong language!
Drama: (Ugh. Of course.)
Reading: Uuhhh, what were the two of you... talking about?
History: It's nothing important.
Reading: No, you brought up my name. This is important to me.
Math: *whispers to Science* Should I help him out?
Science: *whispers to Math* Nah. It'll be worse if you do.
History: (Drama, you got me into this. Help me, or I'll tell Art what you really said.)
Art: I heard my name.
Science: *still whispering* Although, we'll reduce viewer loss if we keep them in suspense.
Drama: (Don't you dare.)
History: (Will you help me out?)
Drama: Well, uh, you see, in German, "Raeding" is the word for School.
History: (I hope they don't believe this.)
Drama: (Shut up, this is the only thing I could think of!)
Drama: Yes. But, now that I'm in the Learnhouse, I use this word very loosely. I use the word "Raeding" to refer to the Learnhouse.
Reading: Why do I believe you?
Drama: Because it's true.
Reading: Fine, have it be that way.
[New Scene: Writing's Office]
Writing: Oh, hey. Who are you?
Cameraman: I'm the cameraman. I'm doing introductions.
Writing: Oh, cool. That's great. I love the part where you decide to do mine week s after the season has begun.
Cameraman: Just tell the audience about yourself.
Writing: My name is Writing.
Cameraman: Do you people have any last names?
Writing: Yes, we do.
Cameraman: And would you mind telling us your last name?
Writing: I am Reading's sister. We've been there for each other for a long while. I was always working at my desk, and she was the one who knocked on the door, entered the room anyway, then asked me if I want to build a snowman.
Cameraman: Sounds almost like a trope to me.
Writing: Perhaps it does, but it's reality. Occasionally I would finish a great work, and I will make Reading read it.
Art: I FOUND OUT WHAT THAT MEANT, DRAMA.
[Writing looks startled.]
PA: Yo-you can continue this for now, I would like to begin a new one, alongside this one.
PA: Id-Idea: Reading petitions to get Lunch voted off.
