Young George in a swimming pool just floating under the water

(VO) Deep down we all want to know if we are loved it's the fundemental
question, but when I was a kid the question was even more basic "Does anyone
even like me?" I'm sure there's all kinds of therories on how girl's get
over their insicurities and self doubts (a whistle is blown) but it takes a
pretty twisted mind to think that swim day is the answer (the camera comes
out of the water and there are other people in the water and standing by the
pool too) Thanks alot Mom!
(Joy and George come out of the changing rooms, Young George has her arm
bands on)

JOY: Come on. Hey, why don't you go say hi to your friends sweetie. Look
Georgia it's not going to kill you to make a friend
JOY: Fine, then let's go home
YOUNG GEORGE: I'm not wearing floaties (she takes them off)
JOY: But your a really bad...youre not a strong swimmer George
YOUNG GEORGE: I'd rather drown (she gives the floaties to her mom and walks
off to the group of girls that are standing by the pool - in the background
Joy is talking to a life guard)

(VO) When I was ten I learned one of life's most valuble lessons, no matter
how uncool you think there's someone enven less cool a pool's length away
(she looks over and there is a girl in her bathing suit, goggles and a swim
hat on waving to young George)

BETH: Hi George

and that was Beth-Ann Miller (the five girls start laughing at her)

YOUNG GEORGE: (under her breath) Oh shit

Camera change to outside a cafe where people are laughing and having a good
time, Geirge is sitting in her car looking in at them

(VO) Recently I have been thinking alot about crossing over but when you are
alive crossing over is even harder (the women see her staring and look back
at her - she drives off)

At the Lass houshold Reggie is loking at herself in the mirrow without her

(VO) Much harder

Joy comes into the bedroom without knocking
JOY: So (Reggie quickly puts the mirror down and puts her glasses back on)Do
you wanna go shopping this afternoon?
REGGIE: What for?
JOY: A new sweater
REGGIE: Yeah, that ones pretty tragic
JOY: (pursed lips)I meant for you Reggie.
REGGIE: I have homework
JOY: You know other girls like you go to the mall, it's cool
REGGIE: (she snorts) stealing lip gloss and smoking behind the food court's
JOY: Fine Reggie, stay here and work on that attitude, it's pretty. I'll
call the sitter
(she walks out)
REGGIE: No (gets up and walks out the door too) I'll go
JOY: and what is so tragic about this sweater?

Transition at the poolside. One of the girl's from the group throws
something in the pool and a line of boys jump in. Young George is standing
there with her arms folded


Young George goes to the side of the pool as if to jump in. The girl is
looking superior at George

Fades into George with her head on Der Waffle Haus table peering through a
glass of water with coins at the bottom. the raises her nad and drops
another coin in. The camera pans round to see Mason and Daisy are looking at
the other people who have come in  - they are facing the opposite way round
from George and Rube.

MASON: This is the crucial step the unsuspecting patron peruses his menu and
selects the options. Kiffany swings by she pretends not to notice him
thereby making him feel desperately foolish
DAISY: Castrated, limp and worthless
MASON: A right turd. Now she owns him, he's under her power. Observe
(he tries to get her attention, she walks straight passed him)
DAISY: Absolutely brutal
(Rube looks over and all he can see is Mason showing off his union Jack
MASON: If people think that you don't like them, they want it even more,
it's pathetic really, isn't it?
RUBE: Hey, Captain Asshole
RUBE: this view is ruining a perfectly good breakfast
(they sit back round)
DAISY: I have you know men who have died for that veiw
MASON: Okay so that was today's lesson (German like accent)from Der Vaffle
house, with-hold the love and you gain the power

Rube looks onto the  glass to see George

(his voice sound far way)
RUBE: Hey George, you wanna come out of the pool?
GEORGE: No I like it here, will resurface for food
(he picks up the post-itand shows it to her)
RUBE: You (puts the post-it down)
You (gives to Mason)
You (gives to Daisy)
MASON: Poools, I hate pools, I hate water I hate anything that makes
somebody blue
DAISY: Singing the blues, that's always nice
MASON: Drowning is a really really horrible way to die
DAISY: :sing:I'm blue:sing:
(Roxy comes in)
DAISY: :sing: I'm blue because of you :sing:

Roxy walks in

ROXY: You got the blond hair blue eyed blues again Daisy?
ROXY: Hit me Rube
RUBE: Nice to see you Roxy (hands her a post-it)Why don't you stay
awhile?(retracts it)
ROXY: I would but I don't want to (gives her the post-it)
MASON: Now Roxy here is a classic withholder, she inspires fear through
ROXY: I bring fear through my nine millimeter (shows off her gun) and my
penetrating gaze
MASON: Is that a Pepper spray on your fancy utility belt Roxy
ROXY: It is Mason, you wanna play wid it?
MASON: Yes (he's all excited - she gives him the spray)
ROXY: Youre so into pain
(he sprays it onto his food which makes George jump up)
ROXY: Actually, its not pepper, it's chemical
MASON: Yeah, right Roxy, what ever you say (he eats it)
GEORGE: Toxic chemicals
(Mason covers his mouth for the burning sensation in his mouth, he picks up
the glass with the money in it and takes a swig, but immediately spirts out
the water and it goes all over Kiffany. Everyone is shocked, he takes a acid
burnt sparkling coin from his mouth)
ROXY: You want to beat him senseless, nobody is going to be bothered if you
know what I'm saying
KIFFANY: That better not be my tip
MASON: No-oh
KIFFANY: I will put up with alot but I will not put up with that
(she pours some coffee)
MASON: I'm sorry Kifany, it's just that my eggs wern't exactly lovely this
KIFFANY: Maybe you shouldn't have maced them (she walks away)
RUBE: Thanks Kiffany
MASON: See Rube, you have the power in that relationship, She loves you, she
hates me
RUBE: I tip two dollars on a seven dollar breakfast, It's not brain surgery
(George looks at her post-it)
GEORGE: This is in like five minutes
RUBE: Well maybe you should like get a move on
(she gets up and goes)
DAISY: You do that you know, you withhold the love
RUBE: How can I withhold that which I do not posses. Eat your breakfast

Transition closing elevator door, doors opening and George is coming out of
the lift into the office of Happy Time

(VO) Most girls are late for work because they overslept or they missed
their bus, most girl's didn't have to spend thier morning watching a guy try
to repair his mower

camera change
A tractor up on breese blocks with a man underneath it fixing it. George
standing there waiting with the post-it in her hand

(VO)...successfully I might add (blood is splattered on her blue coat)

Change back to Happy Time where as she is walking down the cubicle aisle
people are staring

MILLIE: (to the people staring) Slurpy
The great thing about work is no matter how fucked up your personal life
is,(Delores waves to her and she waves back) your professional life can make
it seem normal (Millie throws her bag into her cubicle but someone is
sitting in her chair typing and the bag knocks him off the chair

MILLIE: (totally shocked) Oh ...shit sorry. Are you okay?
GUY: I think I'm going to be sick (is bent over)
MILLIE: No please don't
GUY: Anything to the head always makes me wanna throw up
MILLIE: How many blows to the head have you taken?
GUY: A lot in high school (he looks up) Oh god blood. Here comes the
MILLIE: It's a slurpy
GUY: Okay, I'm better. That was a close one.
MILLIE: Who are you?
GUY: (puts his hand out to be shook) Ethan information systems
(looks at him strangely, he puts his hand down) Computer geeks, fifth floor
MILLIE: You accessed my files?
ETHAN: Delores said it was okay. Ive been beaten up alot and I'm a bleeder
and that doesn't look like a slurpy
MILLIE: It's a cherry slurpy Ethan, chill the fuck out
ETHAN: Okay fine
(Delores comes over)
DELORES: I'm so sorry Millie(looks at her coat) Wooh
ETHAN: slurpy
DELORES: I wanted to be here to introduce you to Ethan but Andy in personel
has carpel tunnel in both hands (lowers her voice) can't even pee by
himself, anyhoo Ethan is one of the top dogs at IS he's here to help with
the nazi issue
MILLIE: What nazi issue? Who's a nazi?
ETHAN: Actually you are. but see there's a funny reason behind that, if you
find that sorta thing funny (looks sheepish)
DELORES: Ethan's a genius, humour him
ETHAN: (he starts working on the computer) see there this group in Oregon
and someone put a bot on your hard drive  and theve been using your email to
mail out their um...literature?
MILLIE: To who?
ETHAN: To whom, butthat's cool everyone makes that mistake
MILLIE: Answer the question
ETHAN: Everyone in this like a million people in the country
MILLIE: Everyone thinks I'm a nazi?
ETHAN: Maybe, probably (whispers) Definitely
MILLIE: (she stands up on the chair)Excuse me everyone, can I have
everyone's attention?
(someone shouts out) whoo, take it off
MILIE: Oh shut up, you idiot (she takes off her coat)I'm not a nazi Duh,
what was it? (she hits Ethan)
ETHAN: A bot
(Ethan starts wretching)
MILLIE: A bot. err slurpy...thank ...you for your time (she quicky sits
down)My god this sucks!
DELORES: Millie this is nothing, you should have seen tha tattoos I've has
to have removed
MILLIE: I'm not a nazi
DELORES: not in here, I don't think any of us really is (Ethan nods to
Delores, she gives the a-okay sign and goes back to her cubicle)
ETHAN: So for what it's worth, I never thought you were a nazi
(she puts her hand up for Ethan to back off) so I guess I shouldn't have
been in your seat, that's like a huge corporate faux pas, breach of protocol
or something?
MILLIE: I'm not someone important
ETHAN: Tell that to the fifth floor, the other guys were insanely jealous I
got to work on your computer
MILLIE: Listen I have to sort through all these files
ETHAN: Everyone apart from finlkestein, when the nazi problem he took it
kind of hard
MILLIE: They have to be in the exact order, like now (she waves him off)
ETHAN: Actually, It's funny I reorganised your file structure
MILLIE: You did what? (Ethan clicks a button) Oh Wow!
ETHAN: There just there - just organised. Okay. Bye
MILLIE: Ethan? come here
ETHAN: I could totally help you

Ethan is in the photocopy room where he is photocopying and stapling papers
together. Millie comes over with a can in her hand

(VO) There are defininate perks to having smart guys around. I had to wonder
what good deed I had deserved this and then it dawned on me (flashback to
giving the hand to Ethan, flinging the bag at him, hitting him on the head
several times and shouting "Ethan") Maybe withholding affection does work a
certain (Milie sits down at her desk with Ethan pushing a trolly full of
papers. He comes into the cubicle)

MILLIE: Not so close

Transition flashback
George and the 5 girls and Beth-Ann miller who is standing by the pool.

different. We both orbited that thin air light years away from the center of
the social universe. Okay fine we were geeks. But whatever it was that we
shared, well the ties that bind (the camera comes up to the back of
Beth-Ann's bow at the back that holds her costume up - a circle comes in to
highlight it) were a little loose that day

Tall: Holy shit
(Reflection in the water of Theo bouncing on the board with the towel

REGGIE: Arn't you supposed to sell it?

really pretty?

at Happy Time, at Millie's cubicle Ethan is sitting while she is standing

ETHAN: So everything is on your harddrive and I made you a hardcopy in this
binder in case you know, all that whole nazi problem resurfaces again (gives
her the file)
MILLIE: Why is there post-it's on my binder?
ETHAN: I put these post-its at the top of each sub sections, say if your
like trying to find a job typing, or mothing like, you can also find
MILLIE: I don't like post-its, lose the postits Ethan
ETHAN: Okay, sure,whatever. I do origami crafts and I had some extra, so I
work so quickly,(so she throws the binder on the desk)  so I (pauses) made
you a swan(Millie looks to the desk)
MILLIE: Oh Ethan!(she looks under the the binder where she sees a flat peice
of paper)Oh that's so sweet, Sorry
ETHAN: It was a pretty one, I guess I could make you another one?
MILLIE: That's okay
ETHAN: I didn't really want to anyway, okay bye (he dashes off)

(VO) I wasn't always like this

Transistion flashback
Young George walking by the pool

(VO) I used to be a nice person (she goes and sits next to Beth-ann)

YOUNG GEORGE: Hi, Beth Anne.
BETH ANNE: Isn't it weird how there's so many waves but the water is not
really going anywhere ?
YOUNG GEORGE: Why can't you be normal? Why do you have to be so weird?
BETH ANNE: I don't know. (she gets up and walks off, Young George looks over
to the five girls, the leader sticks her finger up at her)

Transition back to Happy Time

(VO) But being nice didn't seem to work either. It's like anyway I'd play
it, I wind up alone.
Crystal passes Millie's cubicle and pusses over the files, Millie looks
agast and so does Delores.

MILLIE: I'm sorry, Delores.
DELORES: You know, Millie, back in the days, when I had all those
restraining orders against me, I thought hate was the answer
MILLIE: Seriously, Dolores, I'm not a nazi!
DELORES: Oh I know that, silly! I'm just trying to say, sometimes when I
have to choose between a bullwhip and a smile, I choose the smile.(George
stops dead)
MILLIE: That was one of the first things you ever said to me.  You said: "I
haven't seen you smile once."
DELORES: I don't think so. I said that to another young girl. Lovely young
girl. Tragic what happened.
MILLIE: Yeah, my mistake.
DELORES: Millie, Ethan just quit.
DELORES: He said he wasn't cut out for this kind of "corporate cutthroat
What happened, Millie?
MILLIE: I had a bad day.

DELORES: No! Millie...Ethan had a bad day.

Daisy and Stan are walking in the park

STAN: This park is beautiful
DAISY: All of God's creatures, right?
STAN: I guess, I wanted to be a girl ever since I can remember.
DAISY: Who wouldn't wanna be a girl? We're so much prettier than boys!
You're kinda pretty.
STAN: You make it look so effortless.
DAISY: Yeah but don't let the final picture fool you, this is 2 hours of
hard labor in the morning.
STAN: No, it's in everything you do. The way you walk, the way your hair
flows, the way you move your hips... It's perfect
DAISY: Are you flirting with me ?
STAN: I'm dead
DAISY: Right
STAN: Still yours is the face I wanted to see in the mirror every morning.
Just perfect.
DAISY: I know. But you know what, Stan? So are you.
STAN: I think we both know that's not quite true.
DAISY: You're sweet. You're honest. You've got great style. You'd have made
a good woman.
STAN: Would have, could have but I got screwed
DAISY: Yeah. That's all part of his plan, that's what they say.
STAN: That's what they say.
DAISY: Why are you going to church?
DAISY: It's where you talk to God, Daisy, It's his house.

Regie in her room - she is standing in front of the big full length mirror
and she takes off her glasses. Her mother comes in

JOY: Reggie, I need to get a move on early tomorrow morning so you're gonna
have to...
Wow!(reggie puts her glasses back on)
REGGIE: Don't you knock!
JOY: Wow! You look like a...young woman
REGGIE: Please, get out
JOY: I'm out.
(she closes the door)

At Der Waffle Haus. Rube, Roxy George and the waitress is serving

RUBE:Thanks, Matzoth balls are nice tonight.
GEORGE: Do you care if people like you?
ROXY: Do I act like I care?
ROXY: Nobody likes the cops anywa, but they're sure happy to see us when the
shit hits the fan.
RUBE: Eat your soup before it's cold. (Rube looks over and sees Theo)
Jesus! Those are some enormous balls.
GEORGE: Excuse me!(she sees him, he is whipping the waitress with his towel)
Oh good God!
MASON: You have to help me. This man wants to go to his own funeral.
GEORGE: (totally embarassed) He died naked?
MASON: Smashed into a diving board.
ROXY: With his balls?
MASON: Stunning, isn't it?
RUBE: Tell him the rules, Mason. No funerals.
MASON: I tried that, Rube. The thing is...
RUBE: The thing is what, Mason?
MASON: You know that thing. You're good at that...thing that you can...
you're better at...you know, you know...talking.
RUBE: Well said.
MASON: Please, Rube. His name is Theo.
(Theo sees a coin on the floor and goes and tries to pick it up)
ROXY: This is too much ball.
(he pushes his bowl away)
RUBE: Now he's put me off my soup.
MASON: So, you see what I'm saying ?
RUBE: I don't see what you're saying.
GEORGE: I do! Oh God!
(He walks over to them)
THEO: Der Waffle Haus. I remember when the first one of these went up. War
was over. Didn't go so well in the beginning. Betty and I were on our 5th
date. She had waffles.
(Rube looks to Mason)
RUBE: Thanks. Thanks a million. (he get's out of his seat) Come on, Theo.
Let's chat.
THEO: Look at the lovers. Kiss her, you putz.
RUBE: This way, Theo.
MASON: Gonna eat that soup?
GEORGE: Just gross.
MASON: Haven't seen many of them, have you ?
GEORGE: My first...pair.
ROXY: They're not all like that. Some are worse.
MASON: Poor Betty.
GEORGE: Who's Betty?
MASON: No one.
GEORGE: How does this guy not care if people see him like that?
MASON: He just doesn't.
GEORGE: Do you care if people like you?
MASON: No! Why? Somebody said something about me? Is it Daisy? Does she not
like me?
GEORGE: I have to go.
MASON: I can't believe this. What? Has Daisy said something about me?
ROXY: That old man is your reap, Mason.
MASON: So bloody what?
ROXY: Man! You never met a problem you couldn't run from, huh?
You're the one who needs some balls. (he looks dejected)
GEORGE: (Sheilds her eyes as she is passing Theo and Rube) Night, Rube!
THEO: Did she me?
RUBE: She can.
RUBE: And she'll never be the same for it. You know, Theo, death has its own
It's like a train. You don't wanna be late for your train.
THEO: Exactly what that Mason guy said except prettier.
RUBE: Thank you. Why do you wanna go to your own funeral?
THEO: I'm just curious. I'll see who'll come, hear what people have to say.
I lived a long life, you know. Stories will be told.
RUBE: Worried somebody might make a joke or two at your expense?
THEO: I don't know. I was a loud mouth. Betty always laughed at my jokes.
RUBE: Theo, you strike me as the kind of guy who he was, not a load of
bullshit. You were the kind of guy who didn't give a shit about being liked.
That's why people liked them.
MASON: How long ago did Betty die, Theo?
THEO: Seven years this November.
MASON: I'm sorry. I'm a little bit confused. I mean...Isn't she the one that
you really wanna see? And I'm thinking she's not gonna be at your funeral.
THEO: Yep. I miss her. God! I miss my wife.
MASON: I don't think we should keep Betty waiting any longer.(he leans over
the table) Let's go find her then
MASON: Come on.(Mason stands up but turns back to Rube) Rube, do you think
Daisy is upset with me for a reason?
RUBE: Can't imagine why she would be.
THEO: Come on already! I'm freezing my balls of here.
MASON: Sorry, Theo. Wouldn't wanna keep you waiting.(Rube waves him off)

At the church. Daisy and Stan walk in.

DAISY: Would you like some time alone, Stan?
STAN: Please.

Daisy sits down at the pew and makes the sign. Stan walks towards the front

STAN: You bastard. (he tries to grab one of the bibles to throw it but

DAISY: Stan!
STAN: Hypocritical, no-good, backstabbing, judgmental... You said we're all
God's children. Except the freaks. Except for me.( he tries to do it again)
You, You do it
DAISY: I can't. I won't
STAN: Just help me
DAISY: I'm sorry. I can't
STAN: Why would god do this to me?
DAISY: Do what? Have you die this way?
STAN: Have me live this way. God doesn't love all creatures, Daisy.
DAISY: I think you should pray, Stan.
STAN: I want to forgive him, but I want him to tell me...that he's sorry

(a smashing window - Dasiy runs outside to investigate. A light is coming
behind the stained glass window and a figure appears)

Camera outside
KID: Come on! Go! Go! (three kids run away)
DAISY: Hey, hey! Hey, god's watching you! He saw that! Hooligans! You'll pay
for that!
(Daisy comes back in)
DAISY: Stan? Stan...
(does it again and kneels down at the pew)
DAISY: Blessed art thou amongst women. (she smiles a broad smile)

A red sunset transition into the waffle Haus, where Rube is taking a sip of
his drink

(VO) I don't know exactly what makes people cross over. I mean, souls.

Transition at the church, where Daisy and watches the priest sweep up the
broken glass)

(VO) I think they see light where others cannot. I think they see a chance
to become something else. Someone else. (Daisy sits down)

Reggie is at the mall - back at the shop, with her new clothes and new bag
looking out for the shop assistant

(VO) Some people are becoming who they're going to be,(Roxy comes into Der
Waffle Haus and gets a post-it from Rube) others are just trying to be
anything but who they are (Joy. at home, looking in the mirror, trying both
the lipsticks)...And others just can't decide.

Transition back to the mall, where Reggie sees the shop assistant

ASSISTANT: This is Iroquois. It'll match your dark hair perfectly.

She takes the clips out of her hair that she suggested and walks off

(VO) Everybody wants to be liked.

George is in her car, she stops outside a cafe
)Ethan turns around and looks around)
(VO)I know I did...but I knew I was still looking...for something, for
someone. For light...

Young George is standing by the pool. Beth-ann taps her on the shoulder

BETH-ANN: Um, hi, George.
GEORGE: Hi, Beth Anne.

(VO) And I had no idea where I'd find it.(Beth-Ann pushes young George into
the pool) When I was 10, something happened to me...And something happened
to Beth Anne Miller...(she is floating in the water) and it changed both of
our lives...forever. (and sees two gravelings, one goes to get her but the
other whispers to it and they swim away. Two lifeguards jump in to save
