Synopsis: Emma and her sister Stacey are normal teenagers in a small town, when a mysterious infection begins to spread. With the town quarantined, and their parents stuck on the other side of the barrier, the girls have a blast eating junk food and sneaking out to go to parties. But when the disease starts to infect people they know, the girls, together with their neighbor Evan (Emma's secret crush), barricade themselves into their home. But it may already be too late, as the infection is already in their midst, and Emma will be faced with a choice: protect her sister or survive the virus.

...cases were confirmed today,

according to state-run...

...quarantine alert and mobilized

a national epidemic prevention...

...showing signs of

the contagious illness

will receive special

treatment here.

...the Department

of Health has issued

a nationwide quarantine

and mobilized a national

epidemic prevention plan.

With concerns

that chinese authorities

may not be telling

the whole story,

American officials are

tightening screenings

at all points of entry

to the United States.

We'll hear about

the political pressure

around this issue later,

but first, Julia... begins

our coverage from Dallas.

...believed to be caused by

a small, wormlike parasite,

the public is calling

the condition "worm flu."

Symptoms include

increased appetite,

fever, bloody cough and,

in some cases, seizure.

While this is scary,

it's not like the common cold.

Worm flu can only be spread

through the transmission

of blood.

Nevertheless, U.S. officials

are on alert.

President Barack Obama issued

the following address

this morning.

We will continue to closely

monitor the situation.

We're also going to be working

on protocols, to do additional

passenger screening both at the

source and here in the United States.

All of these things

make me confident

that here in the United States,

at least, we...

the chances of an outbreak,

of an epidemic here

are extraordinarily low.

You creepin'?


-Do you have food?

-I don't know. Maybe.



-Help yourself.

-I cannot stop eating today.

I polished off a whole row of

Double Stuf this morning.

It's ridiculous.


-Hey, Evan.

"Hey, Evan."

-I didn't say it like that.

-Yeah, you did, though.

Seriously, you better step it

up before you lose your, like,

-new girl glow.

-Really? How?

Well, like, show

some boob, like...

-I don't have any boobs.

-You don't.

Maybe's, like, an ass guy.

It's not that big of a deal.

We're gonna be late, come on.



Now, you supposed to be

Little Miss Biology.

Don't tell me you afraid

of a dead frog.

Get him, girl.


It looks like it's throwing up

-from its neck.

-Come on.

Em... do it.

I can't do this.

That is nasty.

You know what helps me

when I'm feeling squeamish?


I'll leave it right

there for you.




You and the devil

on a first-name basis?

Unfortunately, yes.



Thanks for getting me

in trouble again.

Calm down.

Em, wait up.


You're the bestest sister

in the world.

If that's the hand that just

touched your vag,

I'm gonna kill you.

It was this one.


All right, I'll see you.

-Bye, Emma.


-So you're Stacey's sister.


I'm Emma.

So... I am CJ.

-I've heard about you.

-That's tight.

What happened to your foot?


I broke it.

How'd you break it?

Shark attack.

It looked a little something

like this.

Come over later?

-Yeah, I'll try.

-All right.

Emmalicious, stay vivacious.

Thank you.

Peace out.

Real class act.

Just mixing with the locals.

You should try it sometime.

-Hey! What's his name?

-Evan, why?


-What are you doing?

Be a good neighbor.

Offer him a ride home.


-You want a ride?

-Taking the bus.

-Yeah, 's taking the bus.

It's, like, the last

stop. It's gonna take forever.

We insist. Don't we, Em?


Of course.

Why are you being such a bitch?

'Cause you don't have balls.

I have balls.

-Hey, Dad.

-You guys ready?




-No way.

Dad, we're giving Evan

a ride home.

-Hey, honey, you're on speakerphone.

-Hi, kids!

-Hi, Mom!
