A misunderstood joke causes a bibliophile to question his long-term relationship with his recovering-goth girlfriend. A decision to spend a week looking for more compatible partners ends with a bit of a twist.

I wrote this screenplay for a script-writing class with Zach Braff in mind for DJ and Pauley Perrette in mind for Dana.
