Fist Fight

Synopsis: On the last day of school, right on Senior Prank Day in Roosevelt High, things don't look good for meek English teacher Andy Campbell, who feels exceptionally expendable facing a bleak future in front of severe job cuts, just before the year's new school season. But soon, things will go from bad to worse when feeble Campbell will infuriate the scary hot-headed history teacher Ron Strickland, who in turn, he will challenge him in an old-school, no-holds-barred, mano-a-mano throwdown in front of everybody, in the parking lot after school. Inevitably, now that the fight is on, no excuses, no regrets, and certainly no talking sense into Strickland, is going to save Campbell who needs to face the consequences of his actions and pay the heavy price. After all, snitches get stitches.

- CAMPBELL:
Whoa!

Hey! Buddy, excuse me.

I'm sorry, you're parking in my spot...

Senior prank day.

Yeah, but it's not a prank.

You're just parking it in an assigned...

That's fine. You're good.

You're good. I'll find a new spot.

- F*cking rent-a-cop.

- Guys!

I need you to stop rocking the cart.

F*ck you!

I'm gonna write your names down.

Well, that's not good.

(INDISTINCT CHATTERING CONTINUES)

BOYS:
Whoo!

(BOYS LAUGHING)

- Do it! Do it! Do it!

- (LAUGHING)

This is gonna be a bad day.

Oh, yeah.

Wait up!

(BOTH CONTINUE LAUGHING)

STRICKLAND:
Hey!

Oh, f*ck!

(HIP-HOP MUSIC PLAYING)

You hold it right there.

Now, outside my class,

I found our school's

1971 championship bat in the trash can.

I'm wondering who put it in there

and why.

We thought it'd be funny

to throw out the bat

and put the computer in with porn.

Put it back.

Now!

Now get y'all Rush Hour asses to class.

Everybody!

Where... Where is my mug?

Why are people always taking my mug?

(SIGHS)

You know, I know we're

a rough school and everything,

and we don't usually have

control over the students,

but this is the worst

I've ever seen the pranks.

Really? I think it's hilarious.

I'm thinking about

taking a shit in the pool.

I want... I want to think

that you're joking.

But for some reason,

I feel like you're not.

I was just picturing everybody's faces.

Yeah. I'm just saying

it's not a good day for this, you know?

My wife was due three days ago.

And I'm up all night

thinking about what I'm gonna say

to the superintendent at 2:00.

You know, I don't have anything planned.

I know what I'm gonna say at my meeting.

I'm gonna be like,

"F*ck you for trying to make us

re-interview for our jobs again!"

I put my blood, sweat, and tears

into my coaching.

- Right.

- Not my fault we always in last place.

Yeah, what... What is your record?

These kids are un-coachable!

It's very tough. It's very tough.

Losing here is a tradition.

It shouldn't be.

- Yeah, it's a terrible tradition.

- Right?

I'm trying my best

not to get one of

these kids' moms pregnant.

I'm trying.

You're not gonna say that, are you?

Hell no, Campbell.

Be polite as shit.

I went out and bought new

jeans for this motherf*cker.

And I hate long pants.

- Yeah, you got an exotic build.

- (DOOR SLAMS)

F*ck this!

Twenty-two years and then,

"See you later!"

Those assholes should have taken my class,

so they can manage a f*cking budget!

I'm taking this.

Taking this.

See? We're expendable.

They fired Irv.

This school's gonna f*ck me?

I'm gonna f*ck it!

STRICKLAND:
Drop it!

Oh, shit.

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

Oh, f*ck it!

What the f*ck is this?

Don't have money for books,

but got money for this newfangled...

He gonna f*ck that coffee machine up.

Is this a practical joke?

Huh? You know I don't play that shit.

How the f*ck you work this bullshit?

You. Campbell.

Me?

You the only one drinking coffee, right?

Uh, yeah.

No, I mean,

I got a light roast cappuccino.

Well, get your light

roast ass over here and help me fix a cup.

Right. Yeah, sure. Yeah.

I'm sorry, I don't know

why I was resisting that.

- Yeah, so it's a new machine.

- No shit.

It's state of the art, though.

All you gotta do is

put in your order, and it does the rest.

Coffee.

You know, I'll just... I'll do it for you,

and I think that's just

gonna be the easiest.

Right, so you got your

drink selections down here.

And flavors, you got hazelnut...

I just want regular coffee.
