OPENING TITLES
Int. Day - Arnold Basement

(Shot of a "Star Trek" episode showing on a black-and-white television.)

CAPTAIN KIRK: There she is. That's the one. What have you done with Spock's brain? What have you--Ahhhhhhh! (An alien woman presses a button on her armband, and the Star Trek men fall, and writhe on the ground.)

(Shot of Paul, Carla, Becky, and Kevin sitting on the couch.)

(Shot of Kevin hesitantly putting his arm around Becky.)

When you're twelve years old you've got a lot of strange new territory to explore.

(Close shot of Becky and Kevin watching TV off-screen.)

For Paul and me, that meant the basement with Carla Healey and Becky Slater.

(They look at each other, then back to the TV off-screen.)

Paul and I...

(Shot of Paul with his arm loosely on Carla's shoulder. They smile at each other then look at the TV.)

Weren't the world's greatest make-out experts...

(Close shot of Becky and Kevin glancing at each other.)

But I figured all I had to do...

(They look at the TV off-screen.)

Was wait for the sign from Becky.

(Shot past Kevin of Becky. A commercial comes on TV. Becky turns to Kevin and kisses him, pushing him backwards.)

That was the sign.

(Shot of Paul and Carla as they embrace and kiss.)

Later

(Shot of both couples on the couch, kissing. The light clicks on. The couples straighten up. Paul flips his glasses on as Carla reaches for cookies on the table. They all sit back, and "act casual" as Norma, holding a gallon of bleach, and Wayne, carrying a laundry basket, come down the stairs. Norma eyes the seating arrangements critically as Kevin looks over his shoulder at her.)

KEVIN (Loudly): Hi, Mom. So, you're doing laundry! (Gestures.)

NORMA: Yeah, I thought I would.

(Wayne walks past, putting a towel on Kevin's head.)

WAYNE: You're folding, Kevin.

(Norma takes the towel off Kevin's head as she looks at him. She pauses, then steps closer to Kevin.)

NORMA: Kevin, what's that on your neck?

(Close shot of Kevin getting nervous, and casually covering the hickey with his hand.)

Mom...be cool.

(Close shot of Norma frowning at Kevin off-screen.)

(Close shot of Kevin looking off, casually.)

KEVIN: Oh this? It's - it's - it's a bug bite! (Gestures.)

(Close shot of Norma frowning at Kevin off-screen, then glancing off.)

(Shot of the other three on the couch, looking forward glumly. Carla, then Paul, looks toward Kevin off-screen.)

Ugh. It was embarrassing for everyone.

(Wide shot of Kevin and Wayne as Wayne emerges from the laundry room and approaches Kevin.)

WAYNE: Hmmm...

(Wayne claps his hands and rubs them together in preparation. The camera moves in slowly.)

Almost everyone.

(Wayne kneels behind the couch, and pushes Kevin's head over to look at the hickey. Kevin struggles.)

WAYNE: I don't know, Mom. Looks to me as though it just might be...a monstro-hickey.

(Wide shot of Norma in the laundry-room as she looks over her shoulder.)

WAYNE (V/O): A love bite. A big...

(Shot of the others on the couch looking glum.)

WAYNE (V/O):...juicy...lip burn.

(Shot of Kevin and Wayne.)

WAYNE: But, uh...that's just a guess.

(Wayne makes kissing noises. Norma comes out of the laundry with the hamper.)

NORMA (To Wayne): Take this upstairs!

(Wayne stands up and takes the hamper from Norma and makes kissing sounds. Norma swats Wayne on the butt as he exits. Kevin, Carla and Becky look toward Norma.)

(Closer shot of Norma as she inspects the seating arrangements of the kids off-screen.)

NORMA: Why don't you kids come upstairs and watch TV? (Nods.)

(Close shot of Kevin looking toward the TV off-screen.)

KEVIN: Uh...

(Kevin looks toward Norma off-screen.)

KEVIN: Star Trek's almost over.

(Shot of Norma looking at Kevin off-screen.)

NORMA: As soon as it is.

(Wider shot of all on the couch as Norma frowns at Kevin.)

KEVIN: OK.

(Norma exits up the stairs slowly, looking toward the kids.)

(Closer shot of Becky looking toward Norma off-screen.)

CAPTAIN KIRK (On TV): Dr. McCoy, Engineer Scott, and myself...

(Close shot of Kevin smiling slightly at the others off-screen.)

CAPTAIN KIRK (On TV): Were taken prisoner inside a highly complex civilization...

(Shot of Paul, Carla, Becky smiling at Kevin off-screen.)

BECKY: A bug bite?

(Close shot of Kevin smiling at Becky off-screen.)

KEVIN: Well, what did you want me to say? (Gestures.)

(Shot of Paul, Carla, Becky looking at Kevin off-screen.)

BECKY (Smiles): I'll give you a bug bite.

(Shot of Kevin as Becky tries to kiss him, pushing him backwards. They wrestle around.)

KEVIN (V/O): Wait. Get off! Becky!

(Shot of Carla and Paul wrestling as she pins him down and smiles.)

PAUL (V/O): No, no!

(Wide shot of both couples on the couch as they wrestle and make out.)

And so the days passed, carefree and lighthearted. Paul and I seemed to have found a truce in the war of the sexes. Everything was simple, and fun.

(Shot of "Star Trek" on TV. An alien woman presses a button on her wristband. The men are driven painfully to the ground.)

In other words, it had to end.

KIRK (V/O): Hey, Kevin. Come here for a second.

Int. Day - School Hallway

(Shot of Kirk near the lockers.)

KIRK: I want to ask you somethin'.

(Shot of Kevin at his locker. He closes his locker and turns around, surprised.)

KEVIN: Huh?! (Frowns.)

(Shot of Kirk.)

KIRK: I want to ask you a favor.

(Kirk motions for Kevin to come over.)

(Close shot of Kevin frowning at Kirk off-screen.)

Kirk McCray wanted to ask me a favor? Kirk McCray - who had stolen Winnie away from me...

(Kevin approaches the camera which rolls back.)

Who had humiliated me, defeated me, ruined my life? Eh, but I was over that. I had Becky, and -

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: I need you to talk to Winnie for me.

(Close shot of looking at Kirk off-screen, slightly surprised.)

What?!

KEVIN: What?! (Frowns.)

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: I need you to talk to Winnie for me. I mean...

(Kirk glances off, then back.)

KIRK: Well, I understand if you don't want to.

(Close shot of Kevin frowning at Kirk off-screen.)

No, Kirk, I want to talk to Winnie Cooper for you...

(Kevin glances off, frowning.)

Almost as much as I want to be...

(Kevin frowns at Kirk off-screen.)

Stabbed through the heart fifty times with a dull butter knife.

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: But, I mean, she'll take it better coming from you. She really likes you.

(Close shot of Kevin looking at Kirk off-screen.)

She does?!

(Kevin glances down and back to Kirk off-screen, trying to control his emotions.)

KEVIN: She does?

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: Well, yeah. I mean, you guys are really good friends, aren't you?

(Close shot of Kevin frowning and shrugging.)

KEVIN: Yeah, I guess so.

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: So, do you think you can just ask her if - if she still likes me?

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KEVIN: I thought you guys were going steady.

(Shot past Kevin as Kirk steps back and looks away.)

KIRK: Oh, man. (Frowns.) I don't know what's going on.

(The camera pans over slightly as Kirk turns and faces Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: I mean, she didn't say anything, but it's just the way she says it.

(Close shot of Kevin looking at Kirk off-screen.)

KIRK (V/O): You know what I mean?

(Close shot of Kirk frowning at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: She's gonna dump me, I know it.

(Close shot of Kevin looking at Kirk off-screen.)

Really?!

KEVIN: Really?

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: I don't know. She didn't say anything to you, did she?

(Shot of Kevin near the drinking fountain, as he takes a few steps forward.)

KEVIN: Me? (Gestures.) No. I mean...

(The camera rolls back as Kevin stops in front of Kirk.)

KEVIN: I hardly ever talk to her any more.

(Wider shot of both.)

KIRK: Do you think you can just ask her for me?

(Close shot past Kirk of Kevin frowning and looking away, then at Kirk.)

KEVIN: Kirk, I don't think it'll be...

KIRK (V/O): Please?!

KEVIN: Such a great idea.

(Wide shot of both.)

KIRK: I mean, I don't know what else to do.

(Kirks steps past Kevin and they turn to face each other.)

KIRK: You know, I mean, I've liked girls before and all, but...

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: Not like I like her.

(Kirk bends down toward the drinking fountain, then looks at Kevin off-screen and straightens up.)

KIRK: There's just something about her. You know what I mean?

(Close shot of Kevin looking at Kirk off-screen.)

Yeah.

(Shot of Kevin looking off and thinking.)

KEVIN: Yeah.

(Kevin frowns at Kirk off-screen.)

KEVIN: But I just don't think -

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: If it's a hassle, you know, forget it.

(Kirk frowns and nods as he turns away, pretending to drop the subject.)

(Shot of Kevin frowning at Kirk off-screen.)

Wait a minute - I could do this.

(Kevin glances off.)

What's the big deal?

(Kevin sighs.)

Winnie Cooper's yesterday's news. Anyway, I had "What's-her-name"...

(Kevin frowns in thought.)

Uh, Becky. Yeah, I had Becky.

(Kevin looks after Kirk off-screen.)

KEVIN: Kirk, wait a minute.

(Shot of Kirk turning over his shoulder and looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: You'll do it? (Smiles.)

(Shot of Kevin looking off as he frowns and nods.)

KEVIN: Yes, I'll do it.

(Wider shot of Kirk. The camera pans slightly as he approaches Kevin, and pats him on the arm.)

(Close shot of Paul looking at Kevin off-screen.)

(Close shot of Kevin looking at Paul off-screen.)

KEVIN: Well, what's your point?

(Close shot of Paul looking at Kevin off-screen.)

PAUL: Look, I just know that if Carla dumped me, I could never go and talk to her about liking the guy she dumped me for.

(Close shot of Kevin looking at Paul off-screen.)

KEVIN: She didn't dump me, Paul. (Frowns.)

(Close shot of Paul looking at Kevin off-screen.)

PAUL: Especially if it's somebody like Kirk McCray. (Nods.)

(Close shot of Kevin looking at Paul off-screen.)

KEVIN: It doesn't bother me, OK? (Frowns.)

(Kevin looks forward and frowns.)

PAUL (V/O): Somebody older who's, like, twice my size.

(Kevin looks at Paul off-screen.)

KEVIN: What difference does that make?

(Shot of both. Kevin is looking away as Paul looks at him.)

PAUL: Who's got muscles out to here...(gestures)...and a dark tan in the middle of the winter.

(Kevin turns toward Paul.)

KEVIN (Yelling): Well, maybe I'm not like you, Paul!

(The cafeteria gets quiet as kids look at him.)

(Close shot past Paul of Kevin noticing people staring and lowers his voice.)

KEVIN: Maybe I'm just a little more secure than that, OK? (Frowns.)

(Wide shot as Kevin angrily stands and picks up his lunch tray, spilling the empty milk carton.)

PAUL: Yeah, sure.

(Paul frowns and gestures as Kevin walks around him, then slams down the tray again, losing the rest of what's on it. Kevin leans on the table and looks at Paul.)

KEVIN: There's no way that I can't talk to Winnie! We're still friends! (Gestures.)

(Kevin looks off.)

KEVIN: "Winnie!"

(Close shot of Winnie frowning at Kevin off-screen.)

(Close shot of Kevin frowning at Winnie off-screen.)

Because he's a coward, and a fool, not worthy of your -

KEVIN: Uh, because...I guess, um...(shrugs)...he really likes you...(frowns)...and he doesn't want to make you feel weird.

He just wants to make me feel weird.

(Close shot of Winnie frowning and looking off.)

WINNIE: I don't know...

(Winnie looks at Kevin off-screen.)

WINNIE: Do you mean do I "like him" like him, or do I just like him?

(Close shot of Kevin looking at Winnie off-screen.)

KEVIN: The first one, I guess. (Shrugs.)

(Close shot of Winnie as she looks off.)

WINNIE: Well, I like Kirk.

(Winnie brushes the hair from her forehead.)

KEVIN: Oh, so you like him.

KIRK: Slowly.

(Shot of Kevin and Kirk.)

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen, expressionlessly.)

(Close shot of Kevin looking at Kirk off-screen.)

(Kevin frowns heavily and shrugs.)

(Close shot of Kirk looking at Kevin off-screen.)

KIRK: Well, what would you give her?

(Close shot of Kevin looking at Kirk off-screen.)

KEVIN: Kirk, get a grip on yourself. (Frowns.)

(Kirk continues to bang his head. Kevin takes a few small steps toward the camera and pauses.)

But now, Kirk raises an interesting question. What if she does like someone else?

(Closer shot of Kevin approaching the camera and smiling slightly. The camera rolls back with him.)

All those golden moments we shared, our first kiss. I still remember the way she looked. She looked...
