WIFE 5 And your lawn must always be manicured and cannot be over two inches tall. Ever. HILLARY (dumbfounded) Really? WIFE 6 It’s not us. It’s the Wyndham Hills home owner’s association. They’re just protecting our property values and preserving the elegance of this neighborhood. HILLARY What’s wrong with a house only costing $400,000? That seems like it would be a very luxury home to me. WIFE 2 It’s all about the type of neighbor you have. You can tell their social and financial status from what they can afford. And... HILLARY
WIFE 1 The demographic of neighbors in this neighborhood has always been comprised of the elitest of the elite. Therefore, we want to keep it that way.
WIFE 6 And we’ll do it at any cost. We don’t want this turning into Oak Cliff. Drew walks through the front door and enters the living room followed by Carlos. He’s looking his best and Hillary is excited to get the chance to flaunt her eye candy to the Southlake Wives. Carlos walks into the kitchen to handle dinner. DREW Good afternoon ladies. HILLARY Everyone, this is my husband, Drew Sheard. WIFE 1 Well, it’s nice to get to meet one of Dallas’s Most Eligible Bachelors. WIFE 4 Three years running. WIFE 6 My husband absolutely loved that suit you wore when you did that spread in GQ Magazine. WIFE I also saw you T.C.U.’s press son D.J. How’s 3 on t.v. during conference for your life as a celebrity?
DREW (loving being a celebrity) Well ladies, I don’t consider myself to be a celebrity. I’m just blessed. Drew and Hillary are the talk of the neighborhood. They continue to socialize and get to know this group of neighbors. Ad Libs. CLOSE UP:WIVES 5 & 6 Wife 5 and Wife 6 are talking quietly with each other. WIFE 5 (RE: Drew) Do you see that nice hunk of man?
CLOSE UP: DREW TALKING AND SMILING WIFE 6 Yeah. Bruce has nothing on that. WIFE 5 (RE: Hillary) I wonder how much she put out to get in. WIFE 6 I’d put out everything I could to get that. WIFE 5 I’ll drink to that. Wife 5 and Wife 6 toast their glasses and then take sips from them. WIFE 1 Okay ladies, I think it’s time we get out of the Sheard’s hair. WIFE 3 Yeah. You’re right. It’s getting dark. Each of the Southlake Wives sets her glass down on the coffee table, gets up, and walks toward the front door. Wife 5 walks behind Drew and grabs his behind. Drew jumps a little. Hillary pays no mind to it. HILLARY Bye ladies. I’ll see you next week. WIFE 2 Hillary, I’ll call you. Let’s all do lunch sometime this week. DREW Have a good night ladies. Drew ushers the Southlake Wives out of the front door and then closes it. Hillary feels proud that she made a good impression on the Southlake Wives and now actually feels accepted by this social group of elite women. DREW (walking toward Hillary, RE: Wife 5) That woman grabbed by butt.
HILLARY So? Deal with it. I am now the most popular woman in Southlake. All because of my handsome husband. DREW So you just pimped me out? HILLARY It worked. Didn’t it? DREW I’m glad to see you adjusting well to our new neighborhood. ACT 3: SCENE 4 EXT. SHEARD MANSION. ESTABLISHING. EVENING It is a calm and peaceful evening on the Sheard Estate. CUT TO: INT.

D.J. You have a Facebook? CARLOS Yes, of course. D.J. Yo, you are the coolest butler ever. D.J. walks into the family room and sits on the couch. He turns on the television. CARLOS (distant) Tell me something I don’t know. Liza walks down the staircase into the family room and sits on the couch next to D.J. She’s a little agitated. What’s up? D.J.
LIZA (RE: Jason) Your step-brother is just an idiot! He’s mad because I’m the one that has a job trying to be independent. D.J. It’s just his mentality. Hopefully he’ll grow out of it. LIZA My mom told me not to get married right out of high school... I should’ve listened. D.J. I guess you should talk to Hillary and my dad about it. LIZA I should. Well, I’m gonna go take a swim. D.J. Okay, have fun. Liza gets up off the couch and walks back up the stairs.
41. D.J. Jason’s a jackass. Carlos enters the family room. CARLOS And a whore. D.J. True that, true that. Carlos sits down in a chair next to the couch. ACT 3: SCENE 5 INT. STUDY. NIGHT Jason is in the study sitting at the desk typing on the computer and talking on his cell phone. JASON Yeah. Uh-huh. I like the sound of that. Yeah, I’m married. She doesn’t have to know.

Jason exits the study. DRAKE Where is everybody? LIZA Well, D.J.’s sleeping. Carlos is off the clock, and I guess everybody else is still at the game. DRAKE It should’ve been over by now. Well, I’m going to bed. Goodnight. LIZA
Drake exits the study as Drew and Hillary enter the study. DREW Where are Sahara, Kevin, and Chase? LIZA I don’t know. HILLARY (worried) Where is my baby? Hillary knows that she shouldn’t have trusted Kevin to look out for Chase. He’s violated her trust once again. DREW I’m sure they’re safe... hopefully.
HILLARY I was talking about Chase. God, please let them be alright. LIZA You want me to go out and look for them? Drew takes his cell phone out of his pocket and looks at the screen. DREW Sahara just texted me! They’re on the way home. HILLARY Oh thank God! LIZA Well, goodnight. DREW Goodnight Liza. Liza exits the study. DREW I’m gonna kill him.

D.J. gets up off the couch and rushes to do his assigned task. Sahara and Chase enter the family room. They both sit on the couch in a stiff, uptight position. They know they’ve disobeyed, but it wasn’t on purpose. Drew does not look happy at all. HILLARY Where have y’all been? DREW You were supposed to be home two hours ago! HILLARY And where is Kevin? SAHARA (calm and rational, yet nervous) Okay, let me explain. I was at a restaurant with Ivan when Chase called me. CHASE (nervous) Yeah, Kevin ditched me at the game to hang out with his friends. D.J. rushes back into the family room. D.J. Here’s that belt you wanted Pops. DREW Thank you Son.
D.J. walks up the staircase. Sahara and Chase get one good look at the belt and get really really nervous. DREW Well, that still doesn’t explain where Kevin is. SAHARA He’s in the back of my car, knocked out. CHASE Yeah, we picked him up from his friend’s house. SAHARA He was sloppy drunk. DREW Well, Sahara we thank you for being so responsible. And both of you calm down. You’re not in any trouble. Kevin is. Sahara and Chase feel relieved and can finally breathe, sit back, and relax. HILLARY (quietly to Drew) We’ll discuss his punishment together. (to Chase) Chase, are you alright? Hillary walks over to Chase and hugs him. CHASE Yeah Mom. I’m fine.

NIGHT FADE IN D.J., Drake, Sahara, and Chase are all dressed in their night clothes and ready for bed. They are sitting around on the couch watching television, playing on their electronics, and talking with each other. FADE OUT
SAHARA D.J. do we always have to watch football? D.J. Yeah. I gotta get ready for the big game coming up on Friday. The coach says I gotta stay focused. DRAKE The only thing you stay focused on is the cheerleaders. D.J. Not true. I got the chicks that do my homework too. DRAKE Well do we always have to watch football? D.J. Look, just let me finish this quarter and we can change the channel. Alright? I’m the one who’s gonna bring T.C.U. a championship. CHASE (sarcastically) Yeah we know the whole story. We’ve heard it a million times. D.J. "Showtime" Sheard, the best quarterback T.C.U. has ever had, is going to bring them a championship. And we’re all supposed to give a rat’s ass. D.J. Yeah. That’s it. Whatever. SAHARA
D.J. So what happened with Jason today? CHASE You missed it. Yeah. SAHARA
DRAKE Hillary seemed a little upset with him. CHASE Dad would’ve been upset with you too had you brought your teacher home just to sleep with her. DRAKE Why didn’t anybody call me and give me a play-by-play? SAHARA It was one of those "you had to be there" scenes. It was funny. CHASE It would’ve been funnier had Liza walked in. DRAKE No, had Dad came home and seen this. D.J. We all would’ve witnessed murder then. SAHARA You know, one of these days that fool is gonna screw up big time. And when he does, I’m just gonna sit there and laugh at him. DRAKE We all would. D.J. So where’s Kevin? CHASE Passed out drunk in the back of Sahara’s car. DRAKE Passed out? Drunk? D.J.
CHASE It’s a long story. But when he comes to, Mom and Dad are gonna kill him. SAHARA You know, I consider shooting him some days. DRAKE Sahara, you’re crazy. SAHARA I’ll show you crazy. DRAKE I bet you will Little Sis. I bet you will. Act 4: Scene 2 INT. DREW & HILLARY’S BEDROOM. NIGHT Drew and Hillary are in their bedroom talking and getting ready to go to bed for the night. Hillary is laying in bed doing some last minute work on her computer tablet and Drew is in the bathroom changing. HILLARY Drew, I don’t know what we’re gonna do with all of these kids. Jason and his professor... (pause to think) well, that’s a story I’m still trying figure out. Kevin is a damn train wreck, Sahara hates me, and I get the feeling that if I leave you and Jason alone, you’ll kill him. Drew walks out of the bathroom in his underwear. Hillary glances at him lustfully. Drew then puts his shirt and pajama pants on. DREW Look, I don’t know what we’re going to do either. I’ll try not to kill Jason, but you know that I don’t tolerate disrespect from anyone in the house that I’m paying for. You should tell him to cool his attitude with me before it gets him hurt.
50. Drew gets into the bed and lays next to Hillary. Hillary gets closer to Drew and puts her head on his chest while stroking his pectorals. I will. HILLARY
DREW I’ll talk to Sahara. She’s always been the child that was so stubborn. The boys have never given me as much trouble as she has. HILLARY What are we gonna do about Liza? DREW What is there to be done about her? She’s polite and respectful all the time. She’s the dream child. A little on the dumb side, but she’s still sweet. What happens between Jason and Liza stays between Jason and Liza. But if it happens again in my bed, there will be some bloodshed. HILLARY I just never thought I’d ever say that I have seven kids. DREW I know right. Who would’ve ever thought that seven kids would be calling us Mommy and Daddy? HILLARY So how was work today? DREW It was good. I got that $10 billion construction deal to build that company’s new headquarters in Beijing. HILLARY That’s great! DREW That means I’m gonna have to be making a few trips overseas within the next few months or so. Would you be okay with that?
HILLARY Yeah. Sure. I would never stop you from going further in your career. DREW They made me Chief Architect too. They liked my design, so they want me to oversee the whole project. HILLARY Wow. You know, as a family, we’re all doing great. The three oldest kids are at one of the best private colleges in the state of Texas. DREW Drake’s going to Harvard. Sahara hasn’t been sent to prison. Yet. HILLARY
DREW You’re funny. Kevin made it past the eight grade. HILLARY Thank the Lord. Jason is in law school and has his internship at that law firm. He’s gonna be successful. And that dumb broad he married is just here. DREW We’ll hope for the best for her. It seems like success runs in families. Someone knocks on the door. Come in. HILLARY
Drake enters the bedroom. He is having mixed emotions and needs to voice his concerns to someone. Hey Dad. DRAKE
Drew and Hillary sit up.
DRAKE Am I interrupting anything? DREW No. We were just talking. HILLARY Did you need something? DRAKE I wanted to talk to you guys. HILLARY Come have a seat. Drake walks over to Drew’s side of the bed and sits down on the bed. What’s up? DREW
DRAKE I’ve been thinking and I still don’t know if I made the right choice to leave Southlake High and transfer over to Southlake Prep. DREW The decision was all yours. I know Harvard is really gonna like the fact that you went to a private preparatory academy. It’s a big step up from public school and it’ll make your transcript look all the more greater. HILLARY I’d honestly go with the preparatory academy. I wish I would’ve gone to one. I could’ve gotten into a better college and I would’ve had a whole slew of opportunities made available to me. DRAKE I don’t know. I’m just not used to not going to the same school as D.J. and Sahara. It just feels awkward changing schools.
DREW I know how you feel. It’s hard leaving certain parts of your life behind. You don’t really feel that you have the proper closure in order to move on to newer, bigger, and better things. HILLARY We’ve all been there Drake. It’ll be okay. I know it’s been a lot gaining four new stepsiblings, a new stepmom, new house, and lots of changes. It’s been pretty hectic. But we’ll always be there for you. DREW Yeah Son. I know you hate having to share me between your stepmom, my job, and all of my other businesses, but I will always put my family, especially my kids, before anything else in the world. Okay? Yes Sir. DRAKE
DREW It’ll be alright. You go on and do this. We’ll be behind you all the way. DRAKE Thanks Dad. Drew and Drake hug. Drake stands up. HILLARY If you need us, just come talk to us. DRAKE Okay. Goodnight. DREW Goodnight Son. Drake exits the bedroom. Drew and Hillary lay back down and snuggle.
54. HILLARY You’re such a good father. I’m so glad you’re here for my boys. They need a good, positive male role model. Thanks. Act 4: Scene 3 EXT. SHEARD MANSION. BACKYARD. NIGHT Jason is outside in the backyard on his cellphone having an in-depth conversation. He is trying to keep his voice quiet so no one hears him. JASON (on his cellphone sounding commanding) Yeah. Whatever. That’s not enough. Look, have you ever heard of Grayson, Dixon, and Towson Attorneys at Law? Well you should get a computer. They’re one of the most prestigious law firms in Dallas. I’m an intern there. Yeah. Mr. Grayson says that I could become the fourth partner within the next eight months if I keep progressing the way I am. I just handled a case for some company that sued Microsoft for $10 million. I get five percent of that settlement money. I’ve been working my ass off for this company. I need money. Now look, I need you to represent me in court. I’m thinking that this $500,000 should buy me an attorney and a judge. I’m not paying child support to six different women for seven different kids. I mean come on, we’ve never even had paternity tests on these little bastards. No. Liza doesn’t know jack about this and it’s gonna stay that way. Okay? Who cares if she knows about the other women? Look, I’ll handle her. You just keep this... Liza walks up to Jason and interrupts his conversation. DREW
JASON (aggravated) Can’t you see that I’m on the phone? Go upstairs and wait for me. Now! LIZA (brokenhearted) Alright. Liza walks off. JASON (on his cellphone) Okay, I’m back. As I was saying, you just keep this from going up in smoke. Okay? If something bad happens to me because of this, something bad is gonna happen to you. I’ll see you tomorrow. Jason hangs up his cellphone and walks inside the mansion. Act 4: Scene 4 INT. JASON & LIZA’S BEDROOM. NIGHT Liza is sitting on the bed looking like she’s upset. Jason walks into the bedroom and stands next to the bed. JASON What was that about? What? LIZA
JASON When I was outside on the phone. You know you’re not supposed to interrupt me when I’m on the phone with someone. It makes me angry. LIZA I’m sorry. It’s just that I miss you so much during the day. I enjoy the things we do together.
JASON Look, you know I have to work. LIZA Jason, I love you. I just feel like I’m losing you. I mean, this morning is the first time in a few weeks that I’ve felt so alive. You made me feel so alive and radiant. JASON Look, you’re not losing me. I’m just under a lot of stress and pressure being in law school and being an intern at the law firm. I’m just having a difficult time. LIZA Okay. I just wanna be a good wife. I just wanna make you happy. Jason walks over to his side of the bed and starts changing into his pajamas. JASON Look Liza, you do make me happy. You’re hot, excellent in bed, and you’ve got a job. LIZA You never told me why you wanted me to get a job. Why is that? JASON Because, I need a backup just in case I don’t make any money at the law firm. (getting in the bed) If we hit a rough patch I’m gonna need someone to help pick up the slack. That’s what a good wife does for her husband. LIZA (getting closer to Jason) Okay. So you wanna know how my day went? JASON (turning his head away and mumbling under his breath) No not really.
JASON Nothing. Let’s just go to sleep. Okay. LIZA
Jason and Liza kiss. Jason then turns the light off and puts his arm around Liza’s waist. Act 4: Scene 5 EXT. SHEARD MANSION. MOTORCOURT. NIGHT D.J. is standing in the motorcourt of the Sheard mansion waiting for something. A car pulls into the motorcourt and parks right next to him. A woman gets out of the car and greets him. It’s Kendra McNamara (44). Very well kept. Looks 30. D.J.’s sports manager. The Chancellor of T.C.U.’s wife. Seductive. Very scandalous. Conniving. Bipolar. D.J. So how’d it go? KENDRA I’ve talked to the NFL commissioner and he’s seen all of your footage and he’s talking to the Cowboys and you could be on the draft when you graduate. D.J. Sounds good. KENDRA I’m trying as hard as I can to get scouts at all of your games and then eventually bring on some endorsements. D.J. Thanks. Now why’d we have to meet in person? Couldn’t we do this over the phone? KENDRA No. I had to see you. D.J. gives Kendra an odd look.
KENDRA Because I need a big strong man to put me to bed tonight. D.J. Yo, you need to chill out on that now. I said if you helped me land it big, I’d give you the goods. But come on, you’re my manager and we’re at my dad’s house. I’ve only been sleeping with you because you’ve done a really good job. KENDRA And you do a really good job in bed. So come on. Let’s go. D.J. No, not tonight. I’ll meet you at the hotel after class tomorrow. KENDRA Nope. I want it tonight. I’d hate to have to tell my husband, whom might I add is the Chancellor of T.C.U. and I don’t think he’d like to know that his wife has been screwing the star quarterback in exchange for her career management services. D.J. Okay okay. I got it. You don’t have to play dirty like that. KENDRA (stroking D.J.’s chest and abdominal area) Well then, let’s walk into that garage, you lose the clothes, I’ll lose mine, and we’ll make love. Got it? D.J. (depressed) Yes Ma’am. D.J. and Kendra start walking toward the open garage stall. FADE OUT
