INT. RESTAURANT-DAY

Camy is seated in a booth. Tony is sitting across from her.

TONY
I want you back

CAMY
You want me back?

TONY
Camy, I was wrong, I love you.

CAMY
That's not what you said six months ago.

TONY
I was wrong.

CAMY
I don't understand why now you decide to come back and say that you love me and you were wrong. You made this decision so, this is all your fault. You were the one who broke up with me. You don't get to come back and say you changed your mind.

TONY
I've always loved you. I don't know why I broke up with you.

CAMY
Well, you did.

Both pause.

CAMY

(upset)
And not only did you break up with me you kicked me out that night. You decided to break up with me right after we fucked. You're the biggest asshole I've ever met. You really think that I want to get back together with you?

TONY
What do you want me to say Camy? I've already said I'm sorry a million times. I really am sorry. I love you. I want to be with you.

Both pause.

TONY
Marry me.

CAMY
(upset)

Marry you? Are you fucking kidding me?

TONY
Seriously Camy. We could get married and start a life. I can go to work and you can stay home and work on your book or whatever it is that you write and we could have a family. We could start a life together.

CAMY
The last thing I want is to start a life with you. You are fucking insane if you think that I want you in my life at all. You had your chance and you fucked it up. Goodbye Tony.

Camy stands up and exits. Tony lays his head down on the table.

EXT. CHICAGO STREET- DAY

Camy is walking down the street. She is walking at a fast pace because she is upset.

NARRATOR

(upset)
I seriously cannot fucking believe him. After six months he decides to come back and ask me to marry him! What is wrong with him? I must have been completely oblivious when we were together. How could I not see what an arrogant ass he is? I can't believe that I ever fell for that psychobabble bullshit. How could I have ever thought that he was a great guy?

Camy's phone begins to ring. Camy pulls the phone out of her pocket and looks at it. She looks confused.

CAMY
(irritated)

Hello?

MARK
(off phone speaker)

Hey, it's Mark.

CAMY
(surprised)

Hi.

MARK
(off phone speaker)

What are you doing tonight?

CAMY
Nothing.

MARK

(off phone speaker)

Want to come over or something? I thought maybe I could make us dinner.

CAMY
You really want me to come over?

MARK
Yeah.

CAMY
Okay. Cool. Uh…text me the address?

MARK

(off phone speaker)
Okay.

CAMY
What time?

MARK
(off phone speaker)

Seven okay?

CAMY
Yeah.

MARK
(off phone speaker)

Okay. I'll see you at seven.

CAMY
Okay.

Camy hangs up her phone and shoves it back into her pocket. She continues to walk. She looks over and sees a bar. She enters.

INT. BAR- DAY

Camy enters. She walks over to the bar. The bartender behind it looks over to her, then walks over to her.

BARTENDER
What can I get you?

CAMY
Something. Anything. Just make sure it's really strong.

The bartender grabs a glass and a bottle from under the bar. He pours her a shot and hands it to Camy. Camy takes the shot and slams the shot glass on the bar.

CAMY
Another one.

He grabs the shot glass and fills it up again. Again Camy takes the shot and slams the glass down. She grabs a few bucks out of her pocket and slams it down next to the glass. She sits down at the bar.

BARTENDER
Is there anything else I can get you?

CAMY
Jack and coke?

BARTENDER
Coming right up.

The bartender mixes the drink and places it on the bar in front of Camy. Camy puts more money down on the counter. The bartender grabs the money and walks away. Camy takes a drink and sits the glass back down. Her phone again begins to ring. She pulls it out of her pocket and answers it as the bartender brings Camy her change. He sets it down on the bar next to her drink.

CAMY
Hello?

T.J.

(off phone speaker)

Where are you?

CAMY
I'm at some bar.

T.J.

(off phone speaker)

What bar?

CAMY
I don't know. Just some random bar.

T.J.

(off phone speaker)

Are you okay? When are you coming back?

CAMY
I'm fine. And I don't know.

T.J.

(off phone speaker)

I'm coming to find you.

CAMY
No. Don't do that.

T.J.

(off phone speaker)

I'm coming whether you want me to or not.

CAMY
You don't even know where I am.

T.J.

(off phone speaker)

I know you didn't go too far. You never go very far.

CAMY
Well, I'm not going to be here long. Mark called me, I'm going over there.

T.J.

(off phone speaker)

He actually called you?

CAMY
Yes.

T.J.

(off phone speaker)

Okay. Well, have fun.

Camy hangs up the phone and places it next to her drink. She picks up the drink and chugs half the glass. She sits it back down and picks up her phone. She texts Mark. The text reads 'Can I just come over now instead of waiting till 7?' She hits send and sits the phone back down. She takes another drink. Short pause. Her phone beeps. She picks it up and opens the text. It reads 'Come over whenever.' Camy stands up and exits.

INT. LIVING ROOM OF T.J.'S APARTMENT-LATE DAY

T.J. is sitting on her couch next to a girl in late teens. This is MICAH. Micah is smoking out of a bowl. She pulls it away from her mouth and exhales. She hands the bowl to T.J. T.J. puts it up to her mouth and takes a hit.

MICAH
Oh my god. You were right this is some good shit.

T.J.

Well, yeah. I only smoke the good shit.

MICAH
I'm so glad I came over.

T.J. laughs. T.J. takes another hit off the bowl and sets it down on the coffee table. Micah leans over and kisses T.J. They begin to make out with each other. Short pause. T.J. pulls away.

MICAH
Why are you pulling away?

T.J. gives Micah a cocky smile. Micah smiles back and pulls off her shirt. T.J. grabs her and they again begin to make out. T.J. roughly pushes Micah on her back . T.J. gets on top of her and they again begin to make out. T.J. tries to pull of Micah's pants without breaking their hold. Micah reaches down and unbuttons her pants. Both her and T.J. pull off her pants.

INT. KITCHEN OF MARK'S APARTMENT-LATE DAY

Mark is standing in front of the stove cooking. Camy is propped up against the counter.

CAMY
So what are you making?

MARK
Spaghetti.

CAMY
Do you like to cook?

MARK
I love to.

Both pause. Camy walks over to Mark and grabs him. She pulls him away from the stove and shoves him into the wall. They begin to make out. Mark pulls away.

CAMY
Something wrong?

MARK
Yeah. The food is burning.

CAMY
Right.

Mark walks back over to the stove. Camy follows and again leans against the counter.

CAMY
So, what do you do? Like what's your job?

MARK
I don't have one.

CAMY
So, you just travel full time?

MARK
Yeah. Do you have any hobbies? What do you do for fun?

CAMY
I'm a writer.

MARK
Really? What do you write?

CAMY
Mostly short stories but I have written a screenplay.

MARK
A screenplay? So you like movies?

CAMY
I love movies, I'm really into film.

MARK
Well, what's your favorite movie?

CAMY
You're going to laugh.

MARK
I won't laugh. I promise.

CAMY
It's kind of old and really weird and kind of dumb but the movie 'Toys.'

MARK
That has Robin Williams in it right?

CAMY
Yeah.

MARK
And I think Joan Cusack and LL Cool J are in it to right?

CAMY
Yeah.

MARK
That movie is…

Mark stops.

CAMY
I know. It's really bad and really weird but I love it.

MARK
Everyone has their own opinion.

CAMY
Plus I love Joan Cusack.

MARK
Really?

CAMY
Yes. I think she's really funny and intelligent. I just love the way she acts.

MARK
She is a good actress.

CAMY
T.J. makes fun of me for it all the time. She swears that I have this deep desire to be with her but I don't.

Mark laughs.

CAMY
What's your favorite movie?

MARK
'The Field of Dreams.'

CAMY
With Kevin Costner?

MARK
Yeah. I love film to, by the way.

CAMY
Then, who's your favorite actor?

MARK
Kiefer Sutherland.

CAMY
Let me guess you were one of those people who sat and watched '24' all the time.

MARK
I was. I loved that show.

CAMY
Wow.

MARK
You know, I would seriously consider going gay for that man. I have a serious man crush on him.

CAMY
Are you serious?

MARK
Yeah. You know, most men and women have that one person that they would go gay for. Mine happens to be him.

CAMY
Okay then.

MARK
Come on, you can't tell me that there isn't one woman in this world that if given the chance you wouldn't be with. There has to be at least one.

CAMY
I don't know.

MARK
Not even you're favorite?

CAMY
No. I don't understand why people think that I want to sleep with her. I don't. I like the way she acts. I find her extremely intriguing that's it. I don't want to bend her over or anything.

MARK
Then who?

CAMY
Do they have to be famous?

MARK
No.

CAMY
Amanda Weatherly. I went to high school with her and oh my god was she hot. If she would've asked me, I would've.

MARK
See, everybody has one.

Both pause.

CAMY
So, you like film huh?

MARK
Yeah.

CAMY
Seen any good movies lately?

MARK
I'm stuck watching Disney movies for the most part.

CAMY
Disney?

MARK
Yeah. I have a son.

CAMY
You do?

MARK
Yeah.

CAMY
How old is he?

MARK
He's three. His name is Bentley.

Both pause.

MARK
I hope that doesn't freak you out.

CAMY
It doesn't I just wasn't expecting it.

Both pause.

CAMY
So, he lives with his mom?

MARK
Yeah. He is the other reason why I moved back here. I want to be a part of his life. I mean I was traveling a lot and I still plan to but I want him to have his dad. I want him to know me. I want to have the type of relationship with him that I had with my dad.

CAMY
That's really sweet.

MARK
I love Bentley. I really do. It's just hard because Shelia hates me.

CAMY
Shelia's his mom I'm guessing?

MARK
Yeah. I don't know why she hates me but she does. I've never done anything but try to be there for her and Bentley but she thinks that I'm a horrible father.

CAMY
Why does she think you're a horrible father?

MARK
Because I travel. She thinks that I don't want to see him and that traveling is more important to me. Honestly when Bentley gets older I would love to show him all the things that I've seen. Just like me dad did with me.

CAMY
That's really cute.

MARK
Wow, look at me. Sharing all of the intimate details of my life. I'm sorry.

CAMY
Don't be. I like that your open like that. Most people usually try to hide the fact that they have a kid and most dads don't care that they have a kid. You seem like you really love him. I really believe that you want him in your life. It's nice to know that there are men out there like you.

Mark smiles.

MARK
Thanks. I wanted to ask you this last night but I didn't. I know your over eighteen, well at least I hope, but how old are you?

CAMY
I'm twenty-three. You?

MARK
I'm thirty-one.

CAMY

(shocked)
Seriously? You do not look thirty.

MARK
Well, I am.

CAMY
I seriously thought you were twenty-five at the oldest. I would've never guessed thirty.

MARK
Well, thank you.

T.J. and Micah are seated on the couch. T.J. is wearing basketball shorts and a wife beater. Micah is wearing a bra and sweat pants.. She has a blanket over her lower half.

MICAH
You got any food?

T.J.

What? Do you have the munchies.

MICAH
What do you think?

T.J.

I think we have some chips. Let me look.

T.J. exits the room. Short pause. T.J. reenters the room holding chips, snack cakes, and other various snack foods. She walks over to the coffee table and sets it down. Micah grabs the chips and opens them as T.J. its down next to her. Both Micah and T.J. begin to eat the chips.

T.J.

You are seriously devouring those chips.

MICAH
They are so good!

T.J. laughs.

MICAH
Oh my god. You are so amazing. I love you.

T.J.

What?

MICAH
You know what we should do?

T.J.

What?

MICAH
(amped up.)

We should go somewhere! Like a party or a movie or something!

Micah jumps off the couch.

MICAH
I'm super hyper right now. We need to do something!

T.J.

Micah you need to sit down.

Micah starts to jump up and down. She begins to do jumping jacks. T.J. stands up and walks over to her.

T.J.

Micah, come sit down.

T.J. grabs Micah over to the couch. Both sit down.

Seriously T.J., let's do something.

T.J.

Let's just chill. And eat.

INT. KITCHEN OF MARK'S APARTMENT- EVENING

Mark and Camy are seated at the table. The both have plates in from of them. Camy is laughing

MARK
So, I'm bolting down the street, knocking into people, trying like hell to get away from this woman, who is waving a wooden spoon at me. So, what happens? I forget to watch where I'm going and end up crashing over trash. I slam down right on my face but instead of just lying there in pain, I jump and scramble out of there. This whole street is looking at me like I'm a lunatic. It was one of the most interesting moments of my life.

CAMY
Where did this happen?

MARK
Madrid.

CAMY
You've been to Spain?

MARK
Yeah. It's so angelic there.

CAMY
I would love to see it. I've never been anywhere.

MARK
You've never been out of Illinois?

CAMY
I've never be out of Chicago.

MARK
Wow.

Camy pushes her plate away from her.

CAMY
I can't eat anymore.

Mark laughs.

CAMY
You are an amazing cook though.

MARK
Thanks. I love to cook for people.

CAMY
So is this how you get girls? You cook them an enticing dinner?

MARK
Of course.

Mark and Camy both laugh.

CAMY
So, how many places have you been?

MARK
The easier question would be how many places to do I left to visit but I've been to Spain, almost every state in the United States. Uh…I've been to England. It is simply ravishing there. I've been to Canada and Mexico. Um…Costa Rica. I don't know I've been numerous places.

CAMY
I guess so. I feel so lame compared to you.

MARK
Don't. You know everyone usually asks me what I'm running away from but you haven't.

CAMY
Well, are you? Running away?

MARK
Honestly, I don't know.

Both pause.

CAMY
So, what about your mom? I've heard you talk about your dad but not her.

MARK

My mom and I don't get along. We have completely different opinions on everything. We are exact opposites. She lives in Canada. We talk very seldom.

CAMY
I'm sorry.

MARK
What about your parents? I've never heard you say anything about them.

CAMY
Well, my dad and I aren't on speaking terms. Haven't been for six months. And as for my mom. I don't talk to her either. I just recently found out who she was.

MARK
So your mom wasn't around?

CAMY
No.

MARK
Why aren't you talking to your dad?

CAMY
He kicked me out like six months ago, we haven't said a word to each other since.

Both pause.

MARK
Maybe we should talk about something else.

CAMY
Sounds good to me.

INT. LIVING ROOM OF T.J.'S APARTMENT-NIGHT

T.J. is seated on the couch. Micah is sleeping on top of her. They are now joined by Shane who is sitting on the floor next to T.J. Shane and T.J. both have controllers in their hands. They are playing Xbox.

SHANE

(angry)
You fucking suck!

T.J.

I don't suck, I lick. Remember?

SHANE
(angry)

Fucking knock it off! You're kicking my ass!

T.J.

(loud)

You just suck okay? You are really bad at this game. Don't blame me because you don't know how to play.

Shane dies. He throws the controller.

SHANE
(angry)

Fuck you T.J.!

T.J.

You are such a sore loser.

SHANE

(pouting)
Whatever.

T.J.

Are you pouting?

SHANE
(angry)

No!

T.J.

(laughing)

Yes you are!

SHANE
Rematch.

T.J.

Fine. Get your controller.

Shane reaches for his controller and they begin to play again. Short pause.

SHANE

(angry, loud)
I fucking hate you!

Shane again dies and throws the controller as Camy enters the apartment. T.J. laughs.

SHANE

(angry)

I quit.

Camy walks over to the couch. She points to Micah.

CAMY
Who's this?

T.J.

Her name is Micah.

CAMY

(concerned)
Is she okay?

T.J.

Yeah. She smoked with me and she passed out after having a manic episode.

CAMY
Is that normal?

T.J.

Yeah.

CAMY
How old is she? She looks like she's sixteen.

T.J.

She's eighteen.

CAMY
Don't you think she should go home?

T.J. shakes Micah.

T.J.

Micah. Wake up.

Micah sits up and rubs her eyes.

MICAH
What?

T.J.

You should go home.

MICAH
Why? What time is it?

CAMY
It's like nine.

MICAH
I don't have to be home till one.

CAMY
You're passed out on the couch. Why don't you go home and sleep?

MICAH
Fine. Whatever bitch.

Micah stands up. She looks over to T.J.

MICAH
See you later T.J.

T.J.

Later Micah.

Micah exits. Camy sits down next to T.J.

CAMY
So, what was the throwing of the controller about?

T.J.

Shane's a sore loser.

SHANE
I'm not a sore loser. You cheat.

T.J.

No, I don't.

SHANE
I am convinced you cheat.

T.J.

Whatever Shane.

T.J. looks over to Camy.

T.J.

So, how was it at Marks?

CAMY
It was nice.

SHANE
Who's Mark?

T.J.

Some guy Camy met the other night.

CAMY
He's really sweet. I found out he has a kid.

T.J.

He has a kid?

CAMY
Yeah, he has a three year-old named Bentley.

SHANE

You're talking to a guy who has a kid?

CAMY

And he's thirty.

T.J./SHANE
(shocked)

Thirty!?

CAMY
Yeah.

SHANE
So, you're talking to a thirty year-old man who has a kid?

CAMY
I really like him. He has a great personality and he's been all these places. Guys, he's been to Spain and England. I mean he's been damn near all around the world.

T.J.

Well if you like him, then I say go for it.

SHANE
Are you ready for a kid?

CAMY
You are acting like I'm going to run away to Vegas and get married tonight.

SHANE
I'm just asking. Kids are a big deal.

CAMY
Most people our age and older have kids. That's just our generation.

Short pause. T.J. stands up.

T.J.

Well, I got to get ready for this party.

CAMY
You're going to another party?

T.J.

When am I not going to a party?

CAMY
Good point.

T.J.

You guys want to come?

SHANE
I'll go.

T.J.

Camy?

CAMY
I think I'm going to stay here and try to work on my writing.

T.J.

Good luck.

INT. CAMY'S BEDROOM /T.J.'S HOUSE- NIGHT

Camy is seated on her bed. She has a laptop sitting in front of her. She is trying to write something, but instead is staring at a blank sheet.

NARRATOR
I wish I had just a little bit of inspiration. Something to write about.

CAMY
Why is this so difficult?

Camy continues to stare at the screen.

INT. CHICAGO APARTMENT- NIGHT

The apartment is full of people. They are mingling and conversing amongst each other. T.J. and Shane are standing next to each other. T.J. is scanning the apartment. Shane is sulking. They both have a beer in their hand.

SHANE
I don't understand why she doesn't like me. I mean what's not to like? I have a good paying job, well not a good paying job but it pays the bills. I'm good looking right? I mean I'm not a troll or anything, right?

Shane looks over to T.J.

SHANE
T.J.? Hello?

T.J. looks over to Shane.

T.J.

What?

SHANE
Why doesn't Camy like me? I mean what does this Mark guy have that I don't?

T.J.

Will you please stop whinnying about that?

SHANE
I like her.

T.J.

Shane, she really likes this Mark guy okay. And the difference between you and him is he has money and been has so many places. She probably finds him exotic and adventurous. He'll break her heart and then you can swoop in and be the shoulder she cries on.

SHANE
Are you sure that will work? It didn't when Tony dumped her.

T.J.

Yeah but now she knows you. She barely knew you when Tony left her. Now you're her boss and you're over at my apartment all the time. She knows you now. Now let's find someone for me and you.

SHANE
I just want her to like me.

T.J.

Shane, you really need to let it go. Can we please stop talking about it? You're really killing my buzz.

SHANE
It's just I want her to see how great we would be together.

T.J.

You know I wouldn't of brought you if I'd known you were going to be a buzz kill.

SHANE
I just want to be with her.

T.J.

(angry)

If you say one more thing about Camy I will fucking punch you. Hard. Okay?

SHANE
You have so much anger.

T.J.

You being in love with Camy is fucking annoying.

INT. CAMY'S BEDROOM /T.J.'S HOUSE- NIGHT

Camy is seated on her bed. She has a laptop sitting in front of her. She is trying to write something, but instead is staring at a blank sheet. Her cell phone beings to ring. She looks at it and answers.

CAMY
(excited)

Hi!

MARK
(off phone speaker)

What are you doing?

CAMY
Trying to write.

MARK

(off phone speaker)

Am I bothering you?

CAMY
Considering I have yet to write a single word, no.

MARK

(off phone speaker)
I want to see you.

CAMY
Didn't we just see each other? Like two hours ago.

MARK

(off phone speaker)

Yeah, but I like being around you.

CAMY
Oh really?

MARK

(off phone speaker)
Yes.

Camy smiles.

MARK

(off phone speaker)
Plus, I would be able to see you this weekend. I'm going to spend some time with Bentley and I don't want to move this too fast for the both of you.

CAMY
Aw, okay. I completely understand. You should spend some father/son time with him.

MARK

(off phone speaker)
Yeah.

CAMY
So, do you want to come over here?

MARK

(off phone speaker)
I would love to.

CAMY
Okay. See you soon.
