Previously on Roswell: What Might Have Been ...
|| EXT. ROSWELL CIVIC PARK -
Alex's attention is drawn across the street. Isabel notices and turns to see
what he is looking at. It's Larry Trilling; he's going up to people, talking to them
briefly and then moving on to the next.
What do you suppose he's up to?
I don't know, but something tells me he's not running for
|| EXT. WEST ROSWELL HIGH
SCHOOL QUAD - DAY
So, I don't know why I didn't think of it before. I just have to show
my parents what a wonderful guy Max really is--
Cut to Max and Alex:
Once they get to know her, they'll realize that she's warm, loving,
kind, considerate, intelligent, responsible--
Cut to Liz and Maria:
... caring, compassionate, smart, level-headed ... well, really, how
can they not like him? Right?
Absolutely! You'll have them seeing the light of day in no
It's just the waiting that's the hard part.

SCHOOL LAB ROOM - DAY
I just wish there was a way to be together, in the meantime,
without breaking our promises to our parents. At the time they were so upset ...
agreeing to stay apart seemed the best thing to do. I just assumed, once they
cooled down, they would change their minds.
Yeah, me too.
But it's taking longer than I thought it would. And ... It's just when I
see you, it hits me even more how much I miss you. It's like before, when I
thought we could never be together, only now it's worse because now I truly know
what I'm missing.
|| INT. MICHAEL'S APARTMENT -
Maria picks up the receiver that Michael left on the counter.
Maria! Kitchen! NOW!
|| INT. DE LUCA KITCHEN -
So ... I can still see him?
Maria's eyes light up with pleasure and she gives Amy a big smile.
You're just not going to see him at his apartment.
The light in Maria's eyes dims slightly and her smile turns to a pout.
I want you to invite Michael over for dinner tomorrow.
Maria's eyes widen and her mouth drops open.
Michael? Here? For dinner? I don't think that's such a good
I think it's a very good idea. I think it's high time I got to know
Michael better, and that he gets to know me better. I think he needs to know how I
expect him to behave around you.
Maria rolls her eyes.
(under her breath)
Oh God, Michael is gonna hate this!
|| INT. CRASHDOWN KITCHEN -
Both of your parents and Mrs. Evans all met here today.
All of them? Together?
I don't know but they were talking about knowing what
goes on in your lives and reading your diaries.
No! My mom would never do that.
|| INT. CRASHDOWN - KITCHEN
Michael turns at the sound, in time to see the items on the shelf over the grill
bounce once from the vibration. Luckily they all remain on the shelf, except for
one--an open box of baking soda-- which is about to fall onto the burgers on the
grill. He's not close enough to catch the box, but he steps forward, hand
outstretched, in a vain attempt to do so. He is stunned when the box is deflected
by a slight burst of energy, and its contents end up on the floor instead of the grill.
Michael's mouth drops open and he just stares at the mess on the floor for a beat,
then at his hand, then back at the baking soda. Realization hits and he quickly spins
around to see if anyone observed his actions through the pass-through window; in
particular--Kyle. No one, including Kyle and Tommy who are engrossed in their
conversation, seems to have been paying any attention. Michael breathes a sigh of
relief, but he's still a little shaken by the episode as he goes to clean up the mess
in the kitchen. The camera cuts back to Kyle, who is looking at the now vacant
pass-through window, with an enigmatic look on his face.
|| INT. ROSWELL SHERIFF'S
DEPT - NIGHT
Kyle! What are you doing here?
I ... there's ... There's something I need to talk to you
I was just about to leave for home. It wasn't something that could
wait till I got there?
No ... I think it's better if I talk to you about it here.
OK. Let's go back to my office.
