|ROSWELL: WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN - "Take Me To Your Leader" - ACT I - 09/28/05|
|4||INT. WEST ROSWELL HIGH SCHOOL - HALLWAY - DAY|
Michael is walking alone. He seems preoccupied, annoyed, not looking where he's going. He looks up and realizes he's near the exit to the quad. He stops and stares at it as if contemplating using it, then his expression changes, as if he senses something. He half turns, sees something out of camera range, then he whirls around. The camera angle changes to reveal Isabel standing behind him.
Michael points to a trophy case near them; she sees her reflection in the glass.
The expression on Michael's face makes it very clear this is not a topic he wants to discuss.
Michael walks off and Isabel rushes to catch up.
|5||INT. WEST ROSWELL HIGH SCHOOL - HALLWAY - SAME|
Max, Liz, and Maria are walking down the hallway towards Liz's locker. They are super-aware of their surroundings, as if expecting Tess to pop out of nowhere any second.
Max smiles. Liz works the combination on her locker as Max and Maria scan passersby.
Liz has opened her locker and noticed something new in it--a package with a silver ribbon--which she opens to find an assortment of pens, some regular, some metallic, each with her name on it. She turns to Max and smiles.
He turns away for a minute, then turns back and presses her hand between both of his. He closes his eyes and concentrates, then lets go of her hand.
The silver ribbon, with something written on it, is in her hand.
|6||INT. WEST ROSWELL HIGH SCHOOL - CLASSROOM - CONTINUOUS|
Students are entering a math class and Tess is talking to the teacher, who points to a seat she can take. Tess sits in the seat and scans the classroom. Kyle enters the room and spies her. He rushes over to sit in the seat next to her. She glances up and smiles politely.
Kyle gives her a charming smile and extends his hand.
Tess continues to smile politely and extends her hand to take his.
When their hands meet, Tess's expression changes to astonishment. Kyle smiles devilishly, slowly reaches out and caresses her face with his left hand. Suddenly, he stands and approaches her, bending down to kiss her gently on the lips, as he lifts her to her feet. The kisses become more passionate--ravenous even. He picks her up into his arms; she wraps her legs around his waist, her short skirt riding up to a dangerous level. They can't get enough of one another. Kyle walks her over to the teacher's desk and lays Tess upon it, then climbs on top of her, as the teacher and the entire class, look on in shock and amusement. In between passionate kisses, he calls her name softly.
Tess blushes from embarrassment.
Peter Gulla, a skanky-looking guy, appears behind Kyle.
Mystified, Kyle shakes his head and mutters to himself as he leaves to go to his own seat.
Tess, who has collected herself again, gives him a quick once over and does not like what she sees. It shows on her face.
Peter's mouth drops open. Some nearby students razz Peter for Tess's put-down. The camera pulls back to show that Kyle witnessed this exchange with amusement and admiration.
|7||INT. WEST ROSWELL HIGH SCHOOL - HALLWAY - SAME|
Liz and Maria approach the art classroom; Maria is now holding a rose. Vicky and another classmate, Wendy are standing outside the classroom talking before class begins. Vicky and Wendy are also holding their Spring Blast-Off corsages. Liz and Maria enter the classroom, passing Vicky and Wendy who notice that Maria is not bringing a corsage to class. Michael is walking down the hallway from the other direction. He gets within earshot just as Wendy leans in towards Vicky.
Michael stops short and listens without their knowledge.
Michael stiffens, then turns on his heel and walks back in the direction he came from. He is not within earshot of the rest of their conversation.
Both girls get into a gigglefest as they walk into class.
|8||EXT. WEST ROSWELL HIGH SCHOOL - FRONT ENTRANCE - DAY|
Isabel is standing on the sidewalk, as if waiting for someone. Max approaches her.
Isabel looks perturbed by Max's statement, but Diane pulls up in her car before Isabel can reply. Isabel gets into the passenger seat. Max leans down to wave to his mom.
Diane drives off and Max watches them pull out of the driveway. As he's watching he notices another car pull out a couple of cars behind them, driven by a blonde girl--Tess. Max rushes to his Jeep and peels off after them as quickly as he can. At the same time he's fumbling for his cell phone, dialing as he drives.
|9||INT. DIANE EVANS'S CAR - CONTINUOUS|
Diane is driving down North Main Street. Isabel's cell phone is ringing and Isabel answers it.
Diane glances at Isabel, concerned. Isabel glances at the side mirror, equally concerned.
Isabel lowers the visor and pretends to primp in the vanity mirror as she scans the cars behind them.
|10||EXT. ROSWELL STREET - NORTH MAIN STREET - CONTINUOUS|
Max's POV. Diane is stopped at a red light, waiting to make a left turn into the mall parking lot. Tess does not follow Diane into the left turn lane, but continues through the intersection on her green light. Max tries to follow her, but the car in front of him stops when their light turns red. The left turn lane light turns green and Diane continues to the mall parking lot. Camera angle switches to include Max in Jeep on phone.
Tess pulls into the Post Office parking lot on the opposite side of the street from the mall.
Max's light turns green and he drives forward, passing the Post Office.
There's a click indicating Isabel has hung up her phone. Max does the same and continues driving. The camera comes back to the Post Office. Tess exits it, putting stamps in her purse as she heads for her car. She gets in and drives out the other driveway, the one that will allow her to drive across North Main Street and into the mall parking lot, which she does as soon as her light turns green.
Cut to commercial.
