MOM (O.S.) (CONT'D)

Go have some dinner, go to a bar! I

don't even know what that's like. I

was someone's daughter, then I was

somebody's f***ing mother! Okay, I

don't know what that's like.

INT. KID'S BEDROOM - EARLY MORNING

Mason is comfortably asleep. Samantha slowly pulls the pillow

out from underneath his head and smacks him with it.

SAMANTHA:

(singing)

"Oops, I did it again... I played

with your heart. Got lost in the

game. Oh baby, baby..."

Mason throws a stuffed animal at her that she deflects.

SAMANTHA (CONT'D)

"Oops, you think I'm in love. I'm

sent from above. I'm not that

innocent."

Another stuffed animal. She continues to sing.

MASON (O.S.)

Stop! Quit it!

SAMANTHA:

"You see my problem is this. I'm

dreaming away. Wishing that heroes

truly exist. I cry watching the day.

Can't you see I'm a fool in so many

ways..."

MASON:

Quit! Mom!

SAMANTHA:

"But to lose all my senses-- that

is..."

He tries to drown out this last bit with a sustained scream.

Soon the door flies open and Mom enters, angry.

MOM:

What the hell is going on in here?!

Samantha has instantaneously shifted from singing to crying.

MOM (O.S.) (CONT'D)

Do you guys know what time it is?

SAMANTHA:

(through tears/sobs)

He's throwing things at me...

MOM:

Mason! Do not throw things at your

sister!

MASON:

She's faking, she hit me first!!

MOM:

Listen, both of you! I am going

back to bed. I don't wanna hear

another peep out of here for an hour.

Go to sleep.

Mom slams the door behind her. Samantha is suddenly fine,

almost cheerful.

MASON:

(to Samantha)

Faker!

MOM (O.S.)

Hey!

EXT. HOUSE - DAY

Mason swings on a large outdoor swing, while Tommy sits

thumbing through a catalog. Immediately after, we see Mason

and Tommy looking through the lingerie section of the catalog

together.

MASON:

(laughs)

Ohh!

TOMMY:

(pointing, giggling)

Look what I found in the street!

MASON:

Dude!

TOMMY:

I know, right?

(turns page)

Look at those.

MASON:

Hm, look at those!

9.

BOYS:

(giggling)

Ohh!!

EXT. BACKYARD - DAY

Moments later we see Mason having an introspective moment as

he gazes upon a deceased bird's carcass in the dirt.

INT. KITCHEN - DAY

Mom, Samantha, and Mason eat lunch.

MOM:

So listen, guys, I wanna talk to you

about something, and you might not

like this idea at first but... we're

moving to Houston.

MASON:

When?

MOM:

Well, soon. We should be out by the

first, so we don't have to pay two

rents next month.

SAMANTHA:

No, Mother, we're not moving. Nope,

nope, sorry Mom. Nope. Nope.
