FADE IN:

EXT. ST. ANN'S SCHOOL - DAY

CAMERA PANS a group of freshly-scrubbed, innocent children,

obediently standing in line, like recruits for the Holy

Crusade. PULL BACK to REVEAL they are wearing the gray

blazers, striped ties and navy slacks of St. Luke's School.

They are waiting patiently at the curbside in front of the

statue of the school's sainted namesake. One of the fifth

grade BOYS pokes the KID next to him with his elbow. The

other Kid is about to retaliate when SISTER MARY FRANCIS, a

stern-faced nun, appears behind them, grabbing them both

firmly by the shoulders.

SISTER MARY FRACIS

Make one more move and you'll both

be staying late for the rest of the

week.

THE BOYS:

(softly; in unison)

Sorry, Sister Mary Francis.

SISTER MARY FRANCIS

I didn't hear you.

THE BOYS:

(louder)

Sorry, Sister Mary Francis.

Sister Mary Francis checks her watch. She scowls and looks

out past the parking lot gate.

Suddenly we HEAR the SOUND of an ENGINE roaring at full

throttle. There is a SCREECHING of BRAKES, followed by the

loud GRINDING of GEARS. It sounds like the Indy 500 is taking

place around the corner.

SISTER MARY FRANCIS

(used to this)

Step away from the curb, children.

ANOTHER ANGLE:

Zooming through the parking lot gates is a large yellow school

bus. It practically takes the last turn on just two wheels.

The bus driver quickly slams on the brakes, leaving ten feet

of rubber behind him as the bus comes to an ear-splitting

halt right in front of them. The front door immediately swings

open and RICK STAHL, the driver, hops out. Rick is the life

of the party, even when there isn't any party going on.

While chronologically older than the St. Luke students, the

only thing that sets him apart from them is that he has a

driver's license. Rick figures he'll live up to his

capabilities and get serious in his next life... This

incarnation's strictly for laughs. Sister Mary Francis steps

up to him.

SISTER MARY FRANCIS

You're late again, Rick.

RICK:

I know, Sister, but I have a very

good excuse.

SISTER MARY FRANCIS

There can be no excuse for tardiness.

RICK:

You're absolutely right. I should

never have stopped to save that

drowning infant. I'm just weak,

Sister; I'm so weak.

He starts sobbing softly into his hands.
