Steve walks up to his room after a long day and puts the key
in the door. When he looks up, he sees that one of Dustin’s
leaflets is taped to his door.

STEVE

Asshole.

INT. ROOM - DAY

47

47

We come up on an indecipherable background. A greyish wall.
After a beat:

Dustin enters from out of frame as we pull out to reveal... a
black board.

DUSTIN
Good morning, everyone! My name is
Dustin!

We immediately reveal... a classroom of kids.

KIDS

HI DUSTIN!!!

As we pull out more we see that in front of him is a brown
bag of unknown supplies and on the floor is a large box.
He’s talking to Alice’s 5th grade class. She stands off to
the side, admiring.

DUSTIN
How many of you live on a farm?

Almost all the hands go up.

DUSTIN

Alright!

From behind the desk he pulls up a large clear bag full of
dirt and places it on the table. He then reaches into the
bag and pulls out a few toy figures of cows and horses.

DUSTIN
Now, let’s say THIS is your farm!

5THGRADER
That’s a bag of dirt!

74A

DUSTIN
I know, I know! Geesh! Thought
5th graders were supposed to have
imaginations. (He smiles) Ok, how
about this!

He picks up a pencil and waves it over the bag of dirt.

DUSTIN
In SpectroPeculium! Poof! Now
it’s a farm! Ok?

The kids laugh!

DUSTIN
Whew! Thank God for Harry Potter!

We see that one of the children laughing is... Carson Allen.
Claire’s son.
