Sugar and Spice script
Synopsis: When Jack (James Marsden) and Diane (Marley Shelton) find themselves in an unexpected adult situation, the A-Squad comes to their rescue. In order to help their friend Diane, the A-Squad goes where no cheerleader has gone before: taking on a little after-school project known as bank robbery. But the A-Squad does things their way -- with sugar and spice -- forever changing their friendship, their future and the nation's notion of teen spirit.

FADE IN:

INT. POLICE STATION - WITNESS VIEWING ROOM - DAY

PAN ACROSS the frightened faces of NINE WITNESSES, eyes fixed

straight ahead. A POLICE OFFICER walks slowly past each -

FOOTSTEPS ECHOING in their fear.

OFFICER:

Take your time. Take a good look.

He passes a nervous SAFEWAY CASHIER in uniform.

SAFEWAY CASHIER:

Ah, a-are you sure they can't see us?

OFFICER:

Two-way mirror, ma'am.

He passes a UNIFORMED CHEERLEADER, an OLDER WOMAN, then a

FACTORY WORKER, who removes his "Lincoln, Local 186" cap and

wipes his nervous brow.

FACTORY WORKER:

But they're trained killers. A guy at

the plant says, "In 'Nam they could

smell ya!"

OFFICER:

This is the United States of America,

Sir.

Officer reaches the end of the line - presses an intercom.

OFFICER (CONT'D)

(into intercom)

Face front.

Witnesses react - GASP - avert their eyes!

INT. POLICE STATION - LINE UP - DAY

The source of their fear - FIVE UNIFORMED CHEERLEADERS

against the suspect wall. They look like deer caught in

headlights.

A sixth cheerleader, DIAN WESTON, is helped up the steps.

One thing separates her from the rest - SHE'S SIX MONTHS

PREGNANT.

DIANE:

(friendly, to female officer)

I'm sorry to bother you, ma'am, but is

this going to take long? It's game

night.

OFFICER:

(on intercom)

Picture in three --

Like saying "walk" to a dog, the girls instantly smile.

OFFICER (CONT'D)

(on intercom)

-- two, one...

INT. POLICE STATION - LINE UP - DAY

FLASH WHITE to INDIVIDUAL MUG SHOTS (with CREDITS) over

LINCOLN HIGH SCHOOL SONG.

MATCH DISSOLVE WHITE INTO:

A LIGHT hanging above a table.

FBI AGENT (O.S.)

...a heinous crime has been committed

here...

CAMERA CRANES DOWN TO:

INT. POLICE STATION - INTERROGATION ROOM - DAY

CAMERA TRACKS EYE LEVEL around the table where an FBI AGENT

(mid-40's, black suit), sits across from LISA JANUSCH

(cheerleader from the witness side) - pretty, in a man-made

way - bitchy in a B-squad Cheerleader way. Other black

suited AGENTS stand in the room. CHEERLEADER MUG SHOTS cover

the table.

FBI AGENT:

...and testifying in such a case is a

serious matter. Should you decide your

testimony would jeopardize your personal

safety.

LISA:

Look, "Sipowitz", I said I'd tell you

everything - I was just hoping to finish

up before menopause kicks in.

She smiles sweetly to the agent, then pushes Diane's MUG SHOT

toward him.

LISA (CONT'D)

(dropping smile)

Let's start with the one who thinks her

shit don't stink. Diane Weston.

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. DIANE'S BATHROOM - MORNING

CLOSE ON:

Foggy, heart-shaped mirror.

LISA (V.O.)

She's like a goddamn poster child for

high school.

A HAND ENTERS FRAME and WIPES CLEAR the mirror, REVEALING

DIANE (pregnant cheerleader in opening - not pregnant now).
