TITLE:
"Bader Zamalano: Episode 3 - Food Stamps"

INT. GROCERY STORE - DAY

Bader (9) stands at the cashier, holding two jars – one of peanut butter and the other of jam. Annie (22), Bader's babysitter, stands nearby.

BADER:

(excitedly)

Annie, can we get these?

ANNIE:

(smiling)

No, Bader. We already have peanut butter and jelly. Look, I got off-brand goober – it's a mix of peanut butter and jelly.

SLIM Z (14)

(groaning)

Annie, I hate that stuff. Tastes like concrete.

Annie looks at the cashier.

ANNIE:

(to the cashier)

Ring it up, please.

NARRATOR BADER (voiceover - Judah Nelson)

Caleb Reynolds, always trying to save money however he could. So, when Annie went shopping, he had one rule.

INT. CEREAL AISLE - DAY

Bader stands with a white box that reads "cereal" in black letters. Slim Z looks puzzled.

SLIM Z:

(curious)

What type is it? Is it oats? Is it flakes?

BADER:

(teasingly)

Is there a prize inside?

ANNIE:

(sarcastically)

The prize is you don't starve to death.

NARRATOR BADER (voiceover)

Instead of Froot Loops, Cheerios, or Frosted Flakes, we got...

Bader holds up the white box, saying "cereal."

INT. COOKIE AISLE - DAY

Slim Z holds a big white bag that says "cookie." He looks confused.

SLIM Z:

(confused)

Cookie? What kind of cookie is it? Is it Oreos, ginger snaps, or Chips Ahoy?

NARRATOR BADER (voiceover)

That's right, it's just plain "cookie" – one giant cookie in a big bag.

FLASHBACK:

INT. KITCHEN - DAY

Young Bader asks Annie for a cookie.

BADER:

(pleadingly)

Annie, can I have some cookie?

ANNIE:

(smiling)

Yes, but only two bites.

PRESENT:

INT. SCHOOL CORRIDOR - DAY

Caleb Johnston (11) walks down the corridor, feeling frustrated.

GIRL:
hi Bader-and-Caleb

CALEB JOHNSTON:
did you see that?

Bader was confused so Caleb Johnston went to the other side of the locker

TEACHER:
hi Bader-and-Caleb

BADER:
She said hi

CALEB JOHNSTON:
(complaining)

No she said hi Bader-and-Caleb I wouldn’t be here near you I have no identity I’m sick of it I’m not Caleb I am Bader-and-Caleb I’m just a sidekick.

BADER:
You’re not a sidekick

NARRATOR BADER:
(voiceover) that’s what Batman told Robin

CALEB JOHNSTON:
(Sick and tired and angry) Yeah, you're right. Sidekicks have their own identities. Tonto, Hutch, Watson, Robin, Kato, Tattoo, Chong, Poncho, 99, Tubbs. I don't want to be Bader-and-Caleb for the rest of my life.

[fantasy - a newscast]

News Anchor:
Governor Bader-and-Caleb was arrested today on prostitution and racketeering charges. Governor Bader-and-Caleb was elected two years ago on a law and order platform, and now Governor Bader-and-Caleb faces up to three years in prison.

[reality]

CALEB JOHNSTON:
Why is it Bader-and-Caleb anyways? Why isn't it Caleb and bader?

NARRATOR BADER:
(voiceover) Because it's not your show.

Bader and Everleigh Labrant (10) walk up to Caleb.

BADER:
(encouragingly) Don't worry, Caleb. We know who you are, and we're your friends.

EVERLEIGH LABRANT: (supportive) Yeah, don't let their words define you.

Caleb smiles, feeling reassured.

Tashi:
(approaches Bader) Well, well, well, if it isn't Bader Zamalano. さらなるビートダウンの準備はできていますか? (Are you ready for another beat down?)

Narrator Bader:
Tashi was born in Japan, but she learned Japanese because she thought it was cool.

Bader:
Just shut up!

Tashi:
放課後また会いましょうバカ (See you after school, idiot).

[Scene shifts to Bader's home]

Caleb Reynolds:
Look, I got $200 worth of food stamps, but Annie doesn't want to use them. She's worried about her appearance and what people might think.

Bader:
But if we need them, we should use them. It's about practicality, not appearance.

Caleb Reynolds:
Exactly! We shouldn't let stereotypes and judgments control our lives.

Annie:
(intrigued) Alright, maybe you two have a point. Let's go use those food stamps.

[Scene shifts to the grocery store]

Annie:
(using food stamps to buy groceries) I never thought I'd be using food stamps. But if it helps our family, then I shouldn't be ashamed.

Narrator bader:
Annie loved chocolate turtles more than anything in the world. Whenever she ate one, it felt like all life's problems just went away.

[After-school scene]

Tashi and Bader start fighting, but Bader ultimately defeats her.

Tashi:
(crying) How could you do that?!

Bader:
(mocking) Aww, is little Tashi crying now?

Narrator bader:
Everyone laughed at Tashi, and they cheered for me, calling me the "Stealthinator."

[Episode ends]
