As Jaime clicks off the phone -

BECCA:

You know you look like a homeless

person talking to aliens when you

use that thing.

JAIME:

(refusing to be baited)

It's better than wrapping the car

around a tree.

BECCA:

Depends. Do we have insurance?

Jaime glances over to answer, and suddenly notices a BANDAGE

peeking out from under the collar of Becca's shirt.

5.

JAIME:

(sudden suspicion)

What's that?

Becca SCRUNCHES down in her seat a little. BUSTED.

JAIME (CONT'D)

Oh my god. You got another one,

didn't you?

(off Becca's sullen

silence)

We talked about this -

BECCA:

No. You talked, and I ignored you.

JAIME:

You're fifteen. It's not even legal

for you to get a tattoo, and now you

have two -

BECCA:

(quietly)

Three.

JAIME:

-- and has it ever occurred to you

that someone who'll take a fake i.d.

to put permanent ink in your skin

might not necessarily -

(doubletakes)

Three? You have three?

(sudden dread)

Where's the third one?

BECCA:

Don't worry. You'll never see it.

EXT. PUBLIC SCHOOL -- DAY -- CONTINUOUS

The Pinto SCREECHES to an uneven halt outside Becca's school.

INT. CAR -- OUTSIDE SCHOOL -- DAY -- CONTINUOUS

JAIME:

Rebecca Amanda Sommers, you had

better not be telling me -

Becca JERKS her door open, then turns on Jaime with sudden,

intense EMOTION -

BECCA:

Don't do that, ok? Don't talk like

her. You're not Mom.

Jaime doesn't back down, though that had to hurt.

6.

JAIME:

No. I'm your sister, and I'm

responsible for you -

Becca gets out of the car, turns in the open door.

BECCA:

We've only got two more years where

you have to pretend like you give a

damn, so let's just make it through

them without killing each other, ok?

Becca SLAMS the car door shut and heads into school without

looking back.
