The Blank Screen and Title Card SHATTER to reveal...
1. EXT. SHERMER HIGH SCHOOL - DAY
During Brian's monologue, we see various views of things
inside the school including Bender's locker.
Saturday...March 24, 1984. Shermer
High School, Shermer, Illinois.
60062. Dear Mr. Vernon...we accept
the fact that we had to sacrifice a
whole Saturday in detention for
whatever it was that we did wrong,
what we did was wrong. But we think
you're crazy to make us write this
essay telling you who we think we
are, what do you care? You see us
as you want to see us...in the
simplest terms and the most
convenient definitions. You see us
as a brain, an athelete, a basket
case, a princess and a criminal.
Correct? That's the way we saw each
other at seven o'clock this morning.
We were brainwashed...
2. INT. CLAIRE'S CAR - DAY
We see CLAIRE and her FATHER sitting in their car in the
Claire is the prom queen and is clearly a snob.
I can't believe you can't get me
out of this...I mean it's so absurd
I have to be here on a Saturday!
It's not like I'm a defective or
I'll make it up to you...Honey,
ditching class to go shopping
doesn't make you a defective. Have
a good day.
Claire rolls her eyes and gets out of the car and walks
up the school front steps
3. INT. BRIAN'S CAR - DAY
We are in BRIAN's car. His MOTHER is there and so is
his little SISTER. He is sort of a nerd.
Is this the first time or the last
time we do this?
Well get in there and use the time
to your advantage...
Mom, we're not supposed to study; we
just have to sit there and do
Well mister you figure out a way to
BRIAN'S LITTLE SISTER
Brian gets out of the car and walks towards the school.
4. INT. ANDREW'S CAR - DAY
We see ANDREW and his FATHER. Andrew is clearly a jock;
he’s wearing a letterman’s jacket with lots of patches on it.
Hey, I screwed around...guys screw
around, there's nothing wrong with
that. Except you got caught, Sport.
