EXT. SCHOOL YARD, VAN NUYS HIGH SCHOOL, CALIFORNIA - DAY

There are the CHEERLEADERS, the ATHLETES, the CHESS CLUB, the NERDS who get the high grades, the BLACKS, the HISPANICS, FILIPINOS, SOUTH SEA ISLANDERS, the GOTHS, and the rest.

Bobby stares at the SOUTH SEA ISLANDERS some of whom must be SAMOAN with big builds like the Hawaiian Kings of old, and FIJIANS and ...

FLASHBACK

EXT. LEILANI’S COVE, OAHU, HAWAII - SUNSET

As Maui helps Leilani out of the Paragliding Gear, and Bobby runs up to help.

BLOND SURFER TEENAGER rides the WAVE behind them, and runs his board up to the sand, steps off.

A GRATEFUL LOOK from Leilani to Bobby...

LEILANI
Mahalo. Thanks kane.

BOBBY ROBUCK
Bobby. Not kane.

LEILANI
Kane means man.

BOBBY ROBUCK
Oh.... Kane, man.

Bobby points to Leilani.

LEILANI
Leilani, waihini.

BOBBY ROBUCK
Nice to meet you Leilani Waihini.

Maui smiles.

LEILANI
Leilani is my name. Waihini means woman.

BOBBY ROBUCK
You certainly are... um, Leilani. I’d like to get your phone number or email or something?

LEILANI
We’re not allowed to um, date the tourists.

BOBBY ROBUCK
Who mentioned date? Just want to talk.

Leilani smiles, rolls up her Paragliding Equipment, and Maui helps Leilani carry her equipment to his TOYOTA SCION.

MAUI
I’ll put the ‘quipment in the Tofu.

BOBBY ROBUCK
Tofu?

MAUI
My car looks like a white brick of Tofu.

BOBBY ROBUCK
Oh...

Bobby smiles, Maui smiles. Hand knocks...

The Sunset is beautiful...

MAUI
I got it. You watch sunset with Leilani, and watch for the green flash of light.

BOBBY ROBUCK
(To Maui) What’s that?

Maui’s gone to stash the gear in his tofu car.

LEILANI
Dad said to watch for the green flash of
light. It was lucky if you saw it.

BOBBY ROBUCK
Does it exist?

LEILANI
I don’t know. I never saw it.

BOBBY ROBUCK
Maybe tonight we be lucky.

Leilani and Bobby watch the SUNSET and a GREEN FLASH OF LIGHT....as the SUN sinks below the waters... (actually as the Earth turns away from the sun.)

Bobby turns to kiss Leilani, but she stands, holds her hand out.

LEILANI
I don’t kiss. I um, no sex.

BOBBY ROBUCK
Cool! We can be friends.

Leilani smiles.
