An excerpt …
(it's for a homework science grade)
PETE: James, this is crazy.
JAMES: I know.
PETE: It’ll never work.
JAMES: Maybe not.
PETE: Then why are you doing it?
JAMES: Because I need the grade! If I don’t come up with a science project, Mr. Anderson’s gonna flunk me.
PETE: It’d help if you’d do your homework.
JAMES: Yeah, I know that now. Look, you gotta help me, Pete.
PETE: But what if something goes wrong?
(the experiment begins)
JAMES: Look, just help me get this thing hooked up. (They move to above the sleeping Frank.) Mr. Anderson’s gonna just love this if it works.
PETE: If it works.
JAMES: Okay, we’ve got to hook these battery terminals up to Frank’s head.
PETE: You’re kidding.
JAMES: Look Pete, I think I’ve got this worked out. I’ve been studying up on it.
PETE: You? Studying?
JAMES: Yeah, I got the idea from a video game. You hook these electrodes to a person’s head, you run a cable down to your dad’s car battery, then you flip the switch.
(the experiment seems to work)
JAMES: This is so cool! Clean my room! (Frank looks at him.) Go ahead! This place is a mess and you … I mean my brother … always says I’m a slob. Clean it up!
FRANK: (mechanically going around the room and picking up various items) Dirty socks … dirty shoes … pop cans … someone else’s homework …
JAMES: Hey! Give me that! (He takes it.)
