She Would Never Go With Me (short script)

By Morgan-L

SHE WOULD NEVER GO WITH ME
(WERE I THE LAST GIRL ON EARTH)




INT. BEDROOM – NIGHT



JACK and SHANNON are laughing and giggling while sitting on her bed. She’s wearing pajama pants and a tank-top. He’s wearing boxers and a t-shirt. They’re sitting close together, facing each other.



SHANNON

(Smiling)

I’m pretty sure I’m going to win

this time.



JACK

Well, considering the fact that I’ve

won every time we’ve played so far,

I kinda doubt it.



SHANNON

But this time I have a secret weapon.



JACK

Is that so?



SHANNON

(Nodding)

Yup!



JACK

And what would this secret weapon

be?



She leans in closer and taps him on the nose.



SHANNON

If I told you it wouldn’t be a secret,

would it?



He leans in even closer, their faces almost touching, and taps her on the nose like she did him.





JACK

Whatever it is, it’s not going to

work.



She grabs his hand and moves it out of her face but doesn’t let go.



SHANNON

Wanna bet?



JACK

Maybe. What are we betting?



SHANNON

Hm… how about… if I win you have to

make dinner all week?



JACK

Okay. If I win?



SHANNON

That’s up to you.



JACK

Alright… if I win you have to go out

on an actual date with me.



SHANNON

That it?



JACK

That’s it.



SHANNON

I think I can handle that.



JACK

But you have to treat it as a real date,

okay?





SHANNON

So, you want me to say how your butt

looks good in those capris and how

much that top brings out your eyes?



JACK

You don’t have to pretend I’m a girl,

you know.



SHANNON

I thought it would make things more

fun.



JACK

More fun for you or more fun for me?



SHANNON

(Giggles)

I think I could make it fun for the

both of us.



JACK

(Smiles)

I like how that sounds.



She playfully pushes him on his back and straddles him. He tries to get up but she pins his arms to the bed. She puts her face close to his and the both smile.



SHANNON

Are you ready for it?



JACK

For what?



SHANNON

For my secret weapon.



JACK

Bring it.



She smiles and leans over to the nightstand by her bed. She takes a CD out of her CD player and replaces it with a new one. She pushes play and skips ahead a few tracks. She goes back to her position on top of Jack as music starts to play. She crosses her arms and props herself up on his chest. She leans in close.



SHANNON

So, what do you think?



JACK

This is your secret weapon?



SHANNON

Yup.



JACK

I think it’s going to take more

than a song, although a good one,

to put me to sleep.



SHANNON

The song’s not it.



JACK

Then what is?



She smiles and gently kisses him on the lips then curls up against him, her head and arm on his chest. He lays there as he was. They’re silent for a moment and the song continues to play.



JACK

That’s a fucked up weapon.



She smiles.



JACK

Shannon?





SHANNON

Yeah?



JACK

Why do you do this?



SHANNON

Because I like doing this with you.



There’s a moment of silence.



JACK

Why won’t you just date me?



SHANNON

You know why.



JACK

So you like me enough to do stuff

like this all the time, but you won’t

actually date me because I have a

penis?



SHANNON

Jack…



JACK

Sorry. It’s just…I don’t know to feel

about all this.



SHANNON

Would dating me change how you feel?



JACK

I wouldn’t be so confused. I’d know

you feel the same about me.



She raises herself a little and kisses him again. She looks him in the eye.





SHANNON

You confuse the shit out of me. I’m

happy when I’m with you and I feel

weird when I can’t be with you, even

when I’m with someone else. I don’t

what that means exactly. Is that

about how you feel?



There’s a slight pause.



JACK

Yeah, pretty much.



She lies back down and he runs his fingers through her hair.



JACK

Is there any chance at all of us

being anything more than this?



SHANNON

No, I don’t think so.



JACK

Are you sure?



She smiles and kisses him again but this time it’s a deeper, longer kiss.



JACK

I love you. You know that, right?



SHANNON

Yeah, I know.
