An excerpt …

(In the school cafeteria.)

JESSICA: There he is again.

MARK: Who?

JESSICA: That boy. Why’s he staring at me?

MARK: Maybe he thinks you’re cute.


MARK: Okay, maybe you aren’t cute.


MARK: You’re cute! You’re gorgeous! And you’re hogging all the Fritos. (he grabs a handful)

(Freddy imagines he could be a hero.)

FREDDY: (suddenly morphing into a Super Hero) It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superboy!

(running to their table) Jessie! Come with me!

JESSICA: (both she and Mark become a part of his dream) Superboy! My hero!

MARK: What?!!

FREDDY: Come fly away with me over the cafeteria! Through the town! Around the world!

JESSICA: Oh, yes! Yes, Superboy! Yes!

MARK: Not so fast, Superboy! I’ve planted a thermo-participled bomb inside her knapsack! It’s got an altimeter set to go off at 12 feet in the air! And the cafeteria ceiling is fifteen feet tall!

JESSICA: Oh, no! We shall die! We shall die!

FREDDY: Hang on, Jessie! I shall tuck the thermo-participled knapsack under my left armpit that has been specially coated with atomic Teflon from the planet Krypton! (he grabs her around the waist and the imaginary knapsack with the other hand)

(In the end, it’s reality.)

JESSICA: (as they all become their “normal” selves) Hi, Freddy.

FREDDY: Hi … Jessica.

JESSICA: Look, I gotta go to class. You okay?

FREDDY: Just a little tired, I guess. I think I’ll take a nap.

MARK: Well … sweet dreams. (as she and Mark leave)

FREDDY: Yeh … sweet dreams.
