EXT. TREES, VAN NUYS HIGH SCHOOL - DAY

Dimon Gold introduces Bobby to the other GOTHS.

AARON (GOTH)
Goth is about being powerful and being one with nature. The piercings connect you with nature.

BOBBY
What? That doesn’t make sense....

Dimon gives Bobby the sign, fingertip to the lips, meaning “Shut up and listen.”

 

Bobby shrugs and tries to pay attention to Aaron’s ramblings, but he tunes out and just nods his head, “Yes.”

DIMON GOLD
Feeley’s getting her first piercing. Wanna watch?

BOBBY
The shop?

DIMON GOLD
We close at sunset.

INT. PIERCING SHOP, VAN NUYS, CALIFORNIA - DAY

Bobby watches as FEELEY, 15, shy girl, gets a PIERCING for an EARRING.

Bobby pays the PIERCER, 50’s, a thin woman, a TWENTY DOLLAR BILL.

Bobby sees all the PHOTOS with all the different pierces and body parts.

INT. BEDROOM, ROBERT AND BOBBY’S APARTMENT - NIGHT

Bobby is eating dinner at the dining room table, trying to be invisible.

Robert notices the earring and looks disapprovingly at it.

ROBERT “SENIOR”
Where did you get that? Not in my house as long as I'm paying the bills. You get
your own place and you can dress anyway you want. Your Mom wouldn't have liked
you wearing an earring like a sissy.

BOBBY
My friend Dimon, Feeley....

ROBERT “SENIOR”
Oh, those Gothics?

BOBBY
Goths dad. Goths.

ROBERT “SENIOR”
I forbid you from seeing your new GOTHIC friends and get rid of that earring.

BOBBY
They're really cool and they really like me for me, and all the leather and stuff is just a big act.

ROBERT “SENIOR”
You can’t hang out with your Gothic friends.

BOBBY
It’s not Gothic! It’s Goth!

Bobby runs to his bedroom, slams and LOCKS the door.

Bobby goes to bed angry, turns off the light, stares at the PHOTO of him and the Hula Girls and Leilani.

He remembers where he put the paper with Leilani’s phone and E-mail ..... Finds it....

Bobby is at the Computer and starts to TYPE.

INT. MEN’S BATHROOM, VAN NUYS HIGH SCHOOL - DAY

Bobby is in the school bathroom taking a leak.

THREE BLACK GANG BANGERS and FOUR HISPANIC GANG DUDES in the bathroom farting around, smoking CIGARETTES, dealing DRUGS, and acting stupid.

BLACK GANG BANGERS # 1 nods towards Bobby taking a leak and winks at the others. He comes behind Bobby.

UNSEEN STUDENT in toilet stall... only his feet are seen...

BLACK GANG BANGER # 1
Weiner? That’s more like a Vienna sausage.

HISPANIC GANG DUDE # 1
Earring? You a girl or a guy?

Unseen Student comes out of the stall...just his feet showing BLACK BOOTS....

UNSEEN STUDENT
What you gonna and your Goth bitches gonna do about it?"

Unseen Student comes up from behind Bobby and rips the earring out of Bobby’s ear and runs out the bathroom door.

BLACK GANG BANGER # 1
Hey! You see that?

Black Gang Banger # 1 can’t believe his eyes.

HISPANIC GANG DUDE # 1
Yeah. Who was that? (Ironically. Not innocently.)

Hispanic Gang Dude # 1 knows who the Unseen Student was.

A little bit of blood drips off his ear onto his ALOHA SHIRT.
