YOUNG BILL:

Not anywhere...

YOUNG EPSTEIN:

Yes anywhere. Like there. We could

go there.

Said with a nod up at the full moon.

YOUNG BILL:

No we couldn't.

YOUNG EPSTEIN:

You just gotta think you can.

That's the point.

YOUNG BILL:

Even if there's no chance we could

ever get there. The moon.

YOUNG EPSTEIN:

Way I see it, if you aim for it,

and you don't get there...I bet you

still get somewhere interesting.

Somewhere you never woulda thought-

He’s interrupted by the appearance of a lantern, bouncing

toward them in the darkness-

BENJAMIN HASKELL

William! Get down here!

Bill eyes Epstein in the moonlight.

4.

YOUNG BILL (CRESTFALLEN)

Coming.

As he dutifully descends the tree--CUT TO-

EXT. VERMONT COUNTRYSIDE - MOMENTS LATER

Bill’s Father, hurriedly ushering him back toward the house.

Epstein follows at a small remove-

BENJAMIN HASKELL

I have saved every penny I have to

afford you this opportunity. You

will not embarrass your mother and

myself-

His eyes fall across MR. CHANDLER--the spitshined buggy

driver--in the yard.

BENJAMIN HASKELL (CONT’D)

Mr. Chandler! So sorry. A small

indiscretion. My profound apologies-

As he hastens forward to shake Chandler’s hand, camera

lingers behind with Bill & Epstein...

This is it. Goodbye time for best friends.

YOUNG EPSTEIN:

Me and you. We shoot for the moon.

Got it?

YOUNG BILL (DUBIOUS)

Even if we've got no chance of

getting there...

Epstein nods with a grin. Exactly the point.

YOUNG EPSTEIN:

Even if we've got no chance of

getting there.

A final wan smile between them. Then they separate, cutting

off toward their respective houses. Linger on Young Bill-
