It’s a glistening summer day. A parade of colonial war SHIPS
sail into the harbor. Blue Angels soar overhead, marching
bands play. Jason and the friends, beers in hand, watch the
festivities take place.

WALTER

Alright... I just checked us all in
on Facebook!

ZACK

Yo fuck that Check-In shit! No one
gives a shitthat we’re at the Star
Spangled Sailabrathan. Last time
you checked us in at Dave &
Buster’s for Free Appetizer Night,
I got zero ‘likes’ AND two people
unfriendedme!

ROBBY

ZACK, you are wrong man. Facebook
Check-In is new I.T. innovation.
Perfect for informing audience of
life activities and sexual
orientation.

Jason sips his beer. Maria looks over at him.

MARIA

You alright, kiddo?

JASON

Eh, I could be better. But I’m
enjoying the moment right now.

MARIA

That’s good.
(beat)
Thinkin’about her?

122.

JASON (CONT'D)

JASON

Little bit, yeah.

ROBBY

Walter man, you must stop staring
at boys from the Marching Band.

WALTER

Their pants are so tight man, it’s
like you can’t help but look.

JASON

I’m gonna go get a Bratwurst, you
guys wanna come?

WALTER

Sure! Let’s go.

They follow him through the crowd to the Bratwurststand.
From a distance, he sees AMBER standing there, looking
around. He stops in disbelief.

WALTER (CONT’D)

That’s her, man!!! I’m so excited!

JASON

Oh no... what is she doing here?

WALTER

She came to this festival to sample
some good sausage... but she
actually wants yours!

JASON

Shut the fuck up!

She spots him- walks toward him, beautiful and smiling.

WALTER

She’s coming over, man!
(grabbing Jason)

JASON

(pushing him off)
Shhhh! Shush.

She stops in front of him.

AMBER

Hi.

JASON

Hi... How’dyou find me?

123.

AMBER

I saw your check-in on my News
Feed. Not to be a stalker or
anything... I was in the area so I
figured I’d stop by.

ROBBY

(to Zack)
Told you, bro.

JASON

You don’t hate me anymore?

AMBER

No... I still do. But I also miss
you.

JASON

I miss you too, like it’s not even
funny how much I do.

AMBER

Yeah.

JASON

I’m sorry I let you down.

AMBER

It’s okay. You’ve always been a bit
of a doofus.

JASON

(chuckles)
I still am.

AMBER

What happened between you and your
ex still hurts you know...

JASON

Understandably.

AMBER

It’s fresh right now... But I can’t
let someone like you go that easy.

JASON

(smiles)
Thanks for not giving up on me.

AMBER

We can start over again... As
friends. And see where that takes
us.

124.

JASON

Can we be pseudo boyfriend and
girlfriend?

AMBER

(smiles)

Maybe.

JASON

I love you.

AMBER

I hate you.

Jason smiles. She grabs him and kisses him hard.

MARIA

(melting)

Awwww.

ZACK

Fuckinggross.

WALTER

They are making me horny, guys!

ROBBY

Walter, you must not say such
thing. This is like watching
brother and sister.

WALTER

And I love my sisters the same way
Jason loves Amber.
(beat)
I guess that’s why they had to get
abortions...

They finish kissing.

AMBER

I should probably say hi to your
friends. It’s been a while.

JASON

Yeah, good idea.

Amber embraces the rest of the friends once more.

THE END.
