Gym Heroes (RE: SCHOOL)

By MattConley

WRITER'S NOTE: I was envisioning these Pre-School Students portrayed by Adults dressed in children's clothes.

INT. PRE-SCHOOL GYM - MORNING


Johnny and Suzie - both Pre-School Students - are seated on the bleachers during a Dodgeball game taking place offscreen.


 


JOHNNY


Jeez Louise. Look at that freakin' gym hero.


SUZIE


What's a gym hero?


JOHNNY


An overachieving idiot that tries too hard at gym. Scott is the biggest freakin gym hero I have ever seen in this pre-school! He's such a douche.


SUZIE


Oh, well you're just jealous cause Scott got you out of the game 2 seconds in.


JOHNNY


No, I'm not! And it wasn't 2 seconds into the game ya big jerk.


SUZIE


Yes it was, dummy. The whistle blew and then 2 seconds later Scott whipped the ball and hit you in the face. Right in the middle of the face.


JOHNNY


Shut up, Suzie. That's not how it happened.


SUZIE


Whoa! Looks like Jessica's out.


JOHNNY 


Oh, really?


 


Jessica is out of the game and sits down next to Johnny.


 


JOHNNY


Oh... hi, Jessica.


JESSICA


Hi Johnny.


JOHNNY


How's it... uh, going?


JESSICA


I'm really good, Johnny. Thank you so much for asking. You're so nice.


JOHNNY


I was, um, gonna ask you... What are you doing at lunch later today? Do you maybe want to sit with me? I could buy you a milk.


JESSICA


Really?


JOHNNY


Well, yeah... I mean, if you didn't have other plans...


SUZIE


Oh my God! 


JOHNNY


What?


SUZIE


Scott just committed Dodgeball suicide!


JOHNNY 


He did what?!


SUZIE


He took the ball and threw it at his own face. He basically, you know, killed himself.


JOHNNY


Oh great, here comes the big freakin gym hero.


 


Scott sits down on the bleachers, really close to Jessica.


 


SCOTT


Hey Jessica. How's it going? You look so pretty today.


JESSICA


Oh! Why thank you, Scott. And you're looking athletic as always.


SCOTT


Heh, I know. 


JOHNNY


Hey Scott, I was talking to Jessica you know.


SCOTT


Yeah, you were. Now I'm talking to her.


JOHNNY


What's your freakin problem? You're pathetic. You killed yourself in the Dodgeball game just so you could come over here and steal the girl I wanted to go steady with. Who does that?!


SCOTT


Listen Johnny, you little shrimp. Jessica is going to go steady with me. She is going to sit with me at lunch. And you know what? She's going to play hopscotch with me during recess. And then, after school, she's gonna text me when she's done with her ballerina class and I'm done four-wheeling with a bunch of older kids.


JOHNNY 


That's not true! Jessica... is it true?


JESSICA


Well... 


SCOTT


Unless, of course, you wanna meet at the ball pit at McDonald's and battle for her whenever the next time both of our mommies bring us there at the same freakin time.


JOHNNY


You know what? It's on! I'm gonna get my mommy to bring me to McDonald's today. I'll be waiting for you, ya big loser. And I'm gonna have a bunch of toddlers there if you try any funny business. I know everyone at McDonald's. All those babies are gonna have my back.


SCOTT


Bring it. My mommy spoils the hell out of me, so you know I'll be there. And after I beat your ass I'mma have me two Happy Meals. Maybe I'll get one for boys and one for girls so Jessica can get one of my toys. Then we'll hang by the soda fountain and get some freakin refills. And there's nothing you can do about it, Johnny Boy...


SUZIE


Hey Scott!


SCOTT


What?


SUZIE


Here's a Happy Meal for you!


 


Suzie takes a dodgeball from the gym floor and whips it right at Scott's face. Scott gets hit and cries like a baby, walking away in defeat.


 


JOHNNY


Suzie, that made no sense. Why would you call a dodgeball to the face a Happy Meal?


SUZIE


Who cares, Johnny?... Who freakin cares?


 


Suzie gets pulled away by the Gym Teacher and The Principal as the spotlight shines on Johnny and Jessica sitting on the bleachers as they begin to fall in love.
