Drive Me Crazy

Synopsis: Nicole Maris is a popular high school preppy senior in Utah who gets her life turned upside down when her perfect date, Brad, falls for a cute cheerleader from another school a month before the school's centennial senior prom. After recovering from the shock, Nicole comes up with a solution to save her reputation: find a guy to appear like they're going steady and to take her to the dance hoping to make Brad jealous. Nicole then hooks up with her next door neighbor, prankster and trouble maker Chase Hammond, and tries to model him in her own image while he's looking to make his long-term girlfriend Dulcie jealous too. However, both Nicole and Chase don't expect their charade to lead it where they never expected it to.

(telephone rings)

- Oh, man.

- (button clicks)

- I am so wired.

- Girl:
More so than usual?

Way more.

I made a model of centennial

last night complete with guests.

I stayed up all night.

I've got the entire thing

planned out, every detail.

you didn't sleep?

you should have slept.

I'm a freak, aren't I?

No, you're just very... focused.

Exactly. So what do you think

of my mom's red halter?

Girl:
For your interview today?

It's a little slutty.

Let me rephrase. What do you think

Brad'll think of my mom's red halter?

I think Brad has

better taste than that.

Really?

Okay, see you in a minute.

- (beeps)

- (alarm clock ringing)

(sighs)

Got milk?

Man:
Thanks a lot.

you're a lifesaver.

- You're welcome.

- Sorry about that.

- It's goat's milk.

- Uh-huh.

Dad, bring the milk home.

Come on, Dad. Come on.

(woman laughs)

Dad, can I take the milk

off your hands?

- Good morning, Chase.

- Good morning, Mrs. Maris.

Mom, can I borrow

your red halter?

Oh.

Mrs. Maris:

Would you look at that?

They'll be away at college next year.

Time flies.

Seems like only yesterday

they were practically living together

in that old tree house.

- Dad, milk.

- Mom.

Seriously, you two used to do

everything together.

What happened?

Junior high happened.

- Hey! Whoo!

- (horn honks)

Hi. How you doing?

# If you told me to #

# Well, I'd do anything #

- # And if I ever touched you... #

- (catcalling)

# I'd die #

# Oh, I could have said #

# I wanted you

or told you something true #

# If I really wanted you #

# I'd lie #

# And I told you

everything's well #

# Yeah, I know

just what I'd say... #

- Hi!

- # your Firebird is most amazing #

# Turbo whoa-oh #

# Teen #

# Now she's at it again #

# I see her every weekend #

# Wish I had a dime

for every time #

# Oh, I #

# On a patio

with her hair still wet #

# She's the girl

with the rocking horse #

# On her blinds #

# Oh, I know her #

# Every time #

# Yeah,

I know just what I'd say #

# your Firebird is most amazing #

# Turbo whoa-oh #

# Teen #

# But I won't mean it. #

Wake up, Time Zone High.

- Morning, Sue.

Our top story:
centennial.

Only two months to go.

And as the 100th anniversary

- excitement mounts.

- That's right, Sue.

And here to take

that excitement up a notch

is a "Wake Up, Time Zone" special:

Centennial... your 100-year event.

Our centennial bash is the culmination

of a weeklong series of events.

It's gonna be the greatest night

of our lives.

Something this big only comes along

once every hundred years.

We're making the most of it

so you can make the most of it.

Girl:
So, where are we

on the senior class skit?

- Are we doing the sculpture idea?

- Boy:
Yes, it's a good idea.

Nicole, how's the rest

of the budget looking?

- $16,372...

- Girl:
Good, we'll need it.

Rupert and I are working

on a deal for a jumbo screen.

- It's sick.

- Are parents invited or only alumni?

Both. Tradition.

Everyone's invited.

Why are we doing this again?

- As a protest.

- Of what?

- People, right?

- Sheep.

Check, Dave.

We're doing this to protest sheep.

And what specifically

about sheep do we object to?

- Chase.

- General herding mentality.

Man, look at 'em down there.
