- Whoo!


Come on, Riley!

Bridges? You did a half hour

on bridges, really?

And one train,

thank you very much.

Please. The project

Riley and I are doing...

gonna kick everyone's asses.

Hands down.

- No question.

- At least mine stayed on topic.

Yours is just an excuse

to make a horror movie.

So what?

It's 10 times more interesting.

10 times more morbid.

I actually thought

it was kinda fun yesterday.

I think Bri and I are gonna head out

to Hollywood after graduation,

- be the next Brangelina.

(Brianna chuckles) Yeah, right.

- Both:

- Nate:
Come on.


- Brianna:
Be serious.

- Nate:
I am serious.

- Boy:
It's Quinn.

I need to return

the camera equipment.

- Can I get your keys?

- Yeah.

Is it cool if I invite him

to the party tonight?

No way...

too old and too creepy.

Come on.

He's helped us out a lot.

Helping you and Riley, you mean.

I'm not dumb enough

to sign up for some stupid

elective like journalism.

Plus really... I mean

what has he really done?

He's loaned you some equipment.

Big deal.

I'm the one that had

to hug the toilet all night.

- Oh, and baby, you were awesome at it.


Hey, what's up, man?

It's right over here.

(Engine revs)

(exhales deeply)

- Dude, it was crazy yesterday.

We shot the scene 30 times,

didn't finish until midnight.

Then spent another two hours

scrubbing the blood off the seats.

But anyway, thanks.

And hey, there's a party tonight.

It should be fun

if you wanna hang with us.

- I've gotta work.

- All right, well, it'll go late.

Brianna and DeeDee's parents

went away for a long weekend,

so she's throwing herself

a little birthday bash.

- Brianna?

- Yeah.

- Brianna Baker?

- Yeah yeah, it's at her house.

Yeah, maybe.

Hey, Quinn, do you think
