VICK It was this kid from the football team. We used to compete for playing time. He said I was a pussy, said I wasn’t anywhere near the player Jim is. Kept saying his was better than me, he got in my face and I told him to back off. Then I just punched him. He hit me back and I knocked him to the ground. I would have hit him more but the security guard pulled me off. TERRI Vick I’m sorry he was wrong, but you can’t just fight people when they make you mad or because they lie. What about school?

VICK I got suspended for two weeks and I have to do some community service shit. I don’t even want to go back. TERRI You’ve got to Vick! You can’t let people like that stop you, you’ve got to graduate. A loud car is heard pulling up to the house. KEVIN gets out of a sports car he parks in the drive. He enters the house visibly drained from an all nighter and then some and sees TERRI and VICK in the living room. KEVIN (tired and barely audible)

TERRI Vick got into a fight and... KEVIN (cutting her off) I was asking Vick. Let him speak for himself, like a man. So you were fighting? VICK This guy from the football team kept getting in my face. I told him to back off and he didn’t.

KEVIN (angry) You what!?

4. KEVIN (CONT'D) If you were half the kid Jim is you would at least go to school and pass without making trouble! If you had maned up and stayed in football you might have amounted to something, then people wouldn’t ride you bout it. VICK stands up anger in his eyes and face. KEVIN is surprised momentarily then he gets more angry.

Final Draft 7 Demo
VICK I don’t have to, I don’t have to be fucking Jim and have to prove anything to you! You fuck, you don’t care about me! KEVIN You ungrateful shit your out of line, you’ve always been out of line. It won’t fly any more, your going to military school. I’m bringing home boxes tomorrow. KEVIN is now on his feet but Vick is already across the room.

The sun is at its highest and there are hardly any clouds. The further VICK gets from Gables Estates the worse the neighborhoods become. FADE TO: EXT. DOWNTOWN MIAMI- NIGHT- 2004 VICK (20) walks alone down a busy street, he is dressed in jeans and a leather jacket.

5.

He is buzzed off several beers he had at a bar. There are many bars and nightclubs on the boulevard. VICK stops and sits down at a bench on the sidewalk for a cigarette. He sits smoking for a minute, then a beautiful woman walks out of a bar and walks to the cross walk near VICK. VICK watches her, they make eye contact for a minute and the woman smiles at VICK. As the woman reaches the curb she drops a pair of sunglasses that rest on her head. She places a foot in the road and starts to bend down to grab her glasses. A fast moving car turns onto the boulevard and is speeding towards the woman showing no sign of stopping.

VICK was already on his feet and moving towards the woman who did not look to see the car. VICK grabs her arm and pulls her out of the road. The woman screams and a second later the car flies by them. HAILEY RELUS Holy shit! That was close. She looks at VICK.

HAILEY You? I guess it was a good thing I smiled. They both chuckle. I guess so. VICK

HAILEY Seriously though, thank you. That would have been a bad end to the night. VICK Don’t mention it. I think you would have done the same for me. I’m Vick, and you are?

Final Draft 7 Demo
HAILEY I’m Hailey. Why don’t you come across the street and let me buy you a drink? It’s the least I could do for you. VICK Alright, I think all the excitement made me thirsty. The light turns and the crossing light signals they can cross the road.

6.

VICK and HAILEY cross the road still talking. They enter a bar on the other side of the boulevard. CUT TO:
