Post Grad

Synopsis: Ryden Malby has planned her academic life since she was in high school to get a college scholarship; now she has just graduated in English and in her master plan she expects to get a job as assistant editor in the publishing house Happerman & Browning, in Los Angeles. Her platonic best friend is Adam Davis, who has a crush on her and is frequently close to her. However, her arrogant classmate Jessica Bard gets the position and Ryden is forced to return home in the suburb to live with her family: her optimistic father Walter, who wants to do everything by himself; her careful mother Carmella who administrates the short resources of her family; her eccentric grandmother Maureen; and her weird little brother Hunter, who wants to race in a boxcar derby. Ryden unsuccessfully seeks a job and feels frustrated, but is emotionally supported by Adam. When Walter accidentally runs over the cat of his next-door neighbor David Santiago with Ryden's car, they visit him to give their sympathies. Ryde

out there looking for a job...

maybe you, uh, you know,

come down and work with me.

Uh, she's already got something lined up.

Tell 'em about the big interview.

At Happerman & Browning, Monday at 10:00.

- Wow!

- Hey!

And my thesis adviser is best friends

with the chief editor...

and has already put in

a good word and everything.

And they are building

these loft apartments...

like a block away from the offices, so...

They have these sweeping city views.

I could walk to work.

Didn't I tell you?

What do you see over there?

What do you see right here on this wall?

Uh, white paint.

- Bookshelves!

- Oh.

All my babies,

floor to ceiling, organized by title.

- No, by author. No, by genre.

- Okay. Settle down.

It's amazing. I'll take it.

- Really?

- Really?

Yes! I can feel it.

It's everything I ever imagined.

Hello? I love it.

Here. I've already filled

out the application.

All right then. I'll need a check

for first and last month's rent...

plus security deposit, so $3,500.

Done and done.

Uh... Hey, don't you think...

you're getting a little ahead

of yourself there, killer?

No. No, I don't. I will

have enough money soon.

Okay, well, right here you wrote

"Happerman & Browning" under "employer"...

but you're not actually an employee of them.

In a couple of hours,

that will be true too, so...


Here you go.

Thank you so much.

I'm hoping to

start moving my stuff in on Saturday.

Just as soon as I call your references.

And your check clears.

# Wake up, wake up

wake the sun #

# Wake up, wake up

hanging like...##

Are we okay? Do we have enough time?

Don't worry. We got plenty of time.

Hey, what's up with Columbia?

Did you hear back yet?

Uh, big envelope, so...

I don't know. I guess I got in.

Wait. Adam.
