INT HALLWAY - DAY

Neil pushes his way through a crowd of boys, carrying two suitcases. As
he enters his room, Knox quickly passes by.

KNOX
Hey, how's it going Neil?

NEIL
Hey Knox.

Cameron comes by and leans against the doorway.

CAMERON
Neil, study group tonight?

NEIL
Yeah, sure.

CAMERON
Business as usual, huh? Hey, I hear you got the new
kid. Looks like a stiff!

He begins laughing when he notices Todd coming into the room.

CAMERON
Oops!

Cameron quickly leaves. Neil tries to keep from laughing as Todd enters
the room and sets his luggage down on his bed.

NEIL
Listen, don't mind Cameron. He was born with his
foot in his mouth. You know what I mean?

He pulls some papers from his blazer pocket and playfully whacks Todd
across the back with it.

CHARLIE comes to the door with a smug expression on his face. Knox and
MEEKS are close behind him. He points at Neil

CHARLIE
Rumor has it, you did summer school.

NEIL
Yep. Chemistry. My father thought I should get ahead.
How was your summer Slick?

CHARLIE
Keen.

The boys enter the room. Charlie turns around and looks at Meeks who is
just entering.

CHARLIE
Meeks. Door. Closed.

MEEKS
Yes sir.

NEIL
Gentlemen, what are the four pillars?

BOYS
Travesty. Horror. Decadence. Excrement.

Charlie makes himself comfortable on Neil's bed and lights up a cigarette.
Meanwhile, Todd is by his bed unpacking his luggage.

CHARLIE
Okay, study group. Meeks aced Latin. I didn't quite
flunk English. So, if you want, we've got our study
group.

NEIL
Sure. Cameron asked me too. Anyone mind
including him?

CHARLIE
Hmm, what's his specialty, boot-licking?

NEIL
Come on, he's your roommate.

CHARLIE
That's not my fault.

Meeks seems to notice Todd for the first time.

MEEKS
Oh, I'm sorry, my name is Steven Meeks.

Neil quickly gets up from his spot by the window.

NEIL
Oh, this is Todd Anderson.

Todd turns around and shakes hands with Meeks.

MEEKS
Nice to meet you.

TODD
Nice to meet you.

CHARLIE
Charlie Dalton.

Charlie continues to lay on the bed, looking smug. Knox extends a hand.

KNOX
Knox Overstreet.

NEIL
Todd's brother was Jeffrey Anderson.

CHARLIE
Oh yeah, sure. Valedictorian. National merit scholar.

MEEKS
Oh well, welcome to Hell-ton.

CHARLIE
It's every bit as tough as they say, unless you're a
genius like Meeks.

MEEKS
He flatters me. That's why I help him with Latin.

CHARLIE
And English, and Trig.

Charlie begins coughing. There is a knock at the door. Charlie quickly
stamps out his cigarette on the floor and Neil tries to wave the smoke
from the air.

NEIL
It's open.

The door opens and Mr. Perry walks into the room. Neil quickly rises from
the window.

NEIL
Father, I thought you'd gone.

The other boys stand up when he enters.

BOYS
Mr. Perry.

MR PERRY
Keep your seats fellows, keep your seats. Neil, I've
just spoken to Mr. Nolan. I think that you're taking
too many extra curricular activities this semester, and
I've decided that you should drop the school annual.

NEIL
But I'm the assistant editor this year.

MR PERRY
Well I'm sorry Neil.

NEIL
But Father, I can't. It wouldn't be fair.

MR PERRY
Fellas, would you excuse us for a moment?

Mr. Perry walks towards the door and Neil hesitantly follows. Mr. Perry
pauses by the door and smiles to the other boys.
