The Clique

Synopsis: Massie Block is the leader of a small group of privileged schoolgirls who arrogantly call themselves 'The Pretty Committee'. These so-called pre-teen 'mean girls' (cynical, egotistical, selfish and narcissistic females) and their clique are respected and feared in their middle school as well as their upper class Rhode Island suburban neighborhood. But Massie's life takes an unexpected turn when her parents friends, a lower-middle class family with a self-assured daughter named Claire move into the Block's guest house and Claire threatens to undermine the superficial Massie's position of the clique.

Oh, my God.

You are single-handedly ruining my life.

You have to be kidding me.

- We're serious about this, Massie.

- So am I.

I already

made plans.

This party isn't just a party.

It's the last party

before winter break's over.

Forget being the event of the season,

it's the event of all four.

The Lyons are gonna be here for dinner.

The Lyons?

Are the tigers and bears coming too?

Oh, my.

Massie, we talked about this weeks ago.

You remember Jay?

My best friend from business school?

He's moving up here from Florida

with his family.

They have a son, Todd,

a daughter, Claire. She's your age?

They'll stay out in the guesthouse

until they find a place.

Does any of this

even ring the smallest of bells?

Uh, no.

- You'll be at dinner and you'll be pleasant.

- Mom.

You always said I should honor

my commitments, right?

Well, I made a verbal commitment

to Shelby Rexler...

...that I would be at her party tonight.

I'm not discussing this anymore.

- Dad.

- You heard your mother.

Mom, if I miss this,

it'd be starting the second semester...

...on the completely wrong foot.

Worse than the wrong foot.

It'd be like wearing the wrong outfit.

Bean, tell me this isn't happening.

This is my worst nightmare.

Worse than the one

where my Amex was rejected.

Worse than the one

where I lost my Prada bag.

And look.

I already had my outfit picked out

and everything.

If I have to miss this,

everyone has to miss this.


Put the brush down.

I'm getting Dylan.

I was just about to call you.

I'm in a wardrobe crisis.

- Hey, Dyl.

- Hey, Alicia. Ow!

- I'll get Kristen.

- She's school shopping.

She's already called me three times... ask if we need

a compass and a protractor.

- What did you tell her?

- To get a life.

Mass, look, I can't talk right now.

Did you get a compass and a protractor?

Who cares?

P.S. Leesh and Dyl on the line.

- Hey, girlies.

- Hi.

- Hey.

- Okay.

So, what I'm about to tell you

is gonna score me major gossip points.

Like Shelby Rexler did not chop her hair off

to look more like Keira Knightley.

- She has head lice.

- Ew! Gross.

I know. I say we bag the party.

There's no way I'm trading

my Frdric Fekkai for Nix.

But it's an 8th-grade party

and we're the only 7th graders invited.

Please, I'm not gonna be caught dead... a party thrown by anyone

under the age of 15.

It's worse than wearing Crocs.

- Wait, head lice and Crocs?

- No one's actually wearing Crocs, Dyl.

Actually, I think Shelby has a pair

in orange.


- Forget it, I'm out.

- Me too.

Me three.

That's what I thought.

Mass, the Lyons will be here soon.

You might wanna change.

Can I change the fact

that they're gonna be here?

Look, I'll make a deal with you.

If you adjust your attitude,

be nice to Claire...

- Who's Claire?

- The Lyons' daughter.

Be nice to her and I'll let you go

to the end of Shelby's party.

Oh, my God.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Now, go get changed.



Bean, chill.

Dad, how many people live here?

Is this really our new house?

Bean, what's one step worse

than a fashion don't?

A fashion don't-even-think-about-it.


They're here.

I'm not even ready yet.

- Hey.

- Hey.

Oh, look. Hey.

You made it.


Good to see you.

- How are you, buddy?

- Oh, you got so big.

What do you think, Bean?

Perfect, right?

Oh, so good to see you.

There she is, perfect timing.

- This is our daughter, Massie.

- Hi, my parents told me all about you.

Mine barely mentioned you.

Except to say how fun and cool you are.

Uh, hello?
