Never Been Kissed Page #2

Synopsis: Josie Geller (Drew Barrymore), a baby-faced junior copywriter at the Chicago Sun-Times, must pose as a student at her former high school to research contemporary teenage culture. With the help of her brother, Rob (David Arquette), Josie infiltrates the inner circle of the most popular clique on campus.

JOSIE:

You did. Yesterday you said, and I

quote, "I have a date with Roger

from Op/Ed tonight and I'm going

to do it with him."

ANITA:

Well, that doesn't mean it was

going to happen for sure.

Josie just stares at her.

ANITA:

Once it didn't happen for sure.

Gus Strauss, late 30's, would probably clean up well,

enters. He tosses some copy onto Josie's desk.

GUS:

Computer's down. Septuplets story.

I need it back by five. Hopefully

the copy's not a mess.

JOSIE:

(emphasizing)

It is hoped that it's not a mess.

"Hopefully" is an adverb. It means

"with hope". You have it defining

the copy, and I'm pretty sure the

copy doesn't have feelings.

Gus and Anita just stare at Josie.

JOSIE:

Well, excuse me for caring about

words.

GUS:

(to Anita)

So. You and Roger in Op/Ed.

ANITA:

Oh, man! Who told?

GUS:

Roger in Op/Ed. Don't make me send

you another memo about my policy

on inter-office dating.

JOSIE:

Intra office. And they're not

dating. They're having sex.

ANITA:

And what is your policy? That if

you're not getting any, no one

can?

Anita flounces off.

GUS:

How many times have I fired her?

JOSIE:

Five-- Six--

GUS:

(shrugging, giving

up)

Eh.

Gus turns to exit.
