(Dillon finds Georgie huddled on the ground reading a book)
So is that speed-reading or panic?
Georgie: Dillon. I didn't know you were
Dillon: I'm not. (Squats down) I got bored
listening to my family fight so I escaped.
Georgie: To find me?
Dillon: Obviously. You want to hang out?
Dillon: We could see a movie.
Georgie: Oh, I wish. I'm about to take
this essay test on "Moby Dick" and all I know is, "Call
Me Ishmael" and "Captain Ahab"
Dillon: Ah, yes. Classic obsession story...a
man destroyed by his quest for revenge.
(Lucas walks up)
Lucas: What are you doing here?
(Dillon stands up)
Dillon: I'm having a conversation with
Georgie, do you have a problem with that?
(Georgie stands up)
Lucas: Maybe. (Drops bookbag on the ground)
Why don't you go back to the Quartermaine mansion estate or wherever
it is you live and leave Georgie alone
(Georgie's happy that Lucas is being "protective" of her)
Dillon: (To Georgie) You want me to go?
Georgie: Gotta go. See, guys I have a very,
very, very, important test to flunk (leaves)
Lucas: (Picks up his bag) Bye-bye (hits
Dillon on the chest and leaves)
is following Georgie out into the hallway)
Teacher: Your father called. He wants you
home right away (hands Georgie a note).
Georgie: Is everything ok?
Teacher: The note doesn't say. But you
can make up the exam. Go.
(Georgie starts to leave and runs into Dillon)
Dillon: You can thank me later
Georgie: I can't stay. I got to get home.
Dillon: I know.
Georgie: You know?
Dillon: Well, yeah. You don't realy believe
your dad called school, did ya?
Georgie: It was you?
Dillon: Actually, it was my mom's stockbroker.
Great guy, a big practical joker...really convincing. Ask the school
Georgie: I can't believe this. I was really
freaking out like something bad happened!
Dillon: It didn't.
Georgie: That's not the point. Do you have
any idea how much trouble I could be in if anybody found out about this?
Dillon: Well, excuse the hell out of me.
Sorry I was just trying to do you a favor. But, hey,you know what, go
back to flunking your test. Or you can say thanks right now and spend
the day with me.
(Georgie and Dillon walk into the living room. Georgie with popcorn,
and Dillon with drinks)
Georgie: So what are we watching?
Dillon: "To Have And Have Not".
You seen it?
Georgie: Are you kidding? I've never even
heard of it.
Dillon: You know, you are lucky I came
along to educate you about the classics and when I'm gone, you will
be able to continue your education. There is this amazing, amazing video
store down by the pier, specializes in all this good stuff. I spent
like an hour there today.
Georgie: Do you have a collection?
Dillon: Well, top 100...nothing I can throw
in my carry on bag, you know? My mom and I never stay in one place for
Georgie: Yeah. Is it a pain, you know moving
around so much?
Dillon: Um...can be. You know my mom's
kind of difficult so she gets into fights with people and the next thing
I know, we have to pack up and leave town and start over somewhere else.
I mean don't get me wrong, it's not all that bad...she's not like a
normal mom, she's more big-sisterly and so we have fun and...and she
loves me you know sort of.
Georgie: Well, have you been places like
Dillon: I have probably lived in every
European capital at one point or another and I can order room service
in about 9 different languages, including (with accent) Swedish.
Georgie: The way you describe it sounds
awesome. But don't take this the wrong way or anything...you seem kind
of...sad or something. (Dillon looks at her sort of suprised) I don't
Dillon: You...no...no I'm not...I'm not
sad. Come on let's watch the movie. (turns the movie on) Movie.
Dillon: (Turns off the TV) One of the great
moments in cinema history. What do you think?
Georgie: I loved the kiss. It was so romantic.
It's not like when you walk down the hall and see some slobbery guy
macking on some girl. You know if Lucas ever kisses me,
I hope it's like that.
Dillon: (Turns more towards her) Georgie,
what do you see in him? Is Lucas smart? Does he read? Do you have one
single thing in common with him because I sure can't see it.
Georgie: Look, Lucas is an awesome soccer
player and he's nice and funny and, and he's really protective like
he was before, and...(looks up and then Dillon looks up and they see
Mac: Bet you didn't expect to see me (Dillon
and Georgie stand up) What are you doing home with a boy in the middle
of the afternoon?
Dillon: (Covers for Georgie) Um, Georgie
got sick during 3rd period and so the school sent her home and when
she got here she realized she didn't have any cold medicine, and so
she called me up and asked me if I'd bring some over.
Mac: Oh. And who are you?
Dillon: I'm Dillon Quartermaine. (Holds
out his hand to shake Mac's but Mac doesn't shake it so he drops his
hand back down)
Mac: Well, Dillon Quartermaine, if Georgie's
sick, she belongs in bed upstairs. Clear out.
Georgie: Um, thanks for the cold medicine.
Georgie: You're a lifesaver
Dillon: Glad to help (takes one last look
at Georgie before grabbing his video and heading outside. When he gets
outside he stands there for a second thinking about Georgie and then
