Moments with Joey – Confusion

Pin It
SCENE 1, INTERIOR. AFTERNOON, CLASSROOM. The teacher moves to a desk where a young boy is patiently waiting for help with his assignment. The teacher kneels down next to him.

JOEY: Mr. Z, I was just doing the assignment and this question perplexed me.

[The boy points to problem number four on his worksheet while the teacher looks at the boy with a surprised expression].

TEACHER: Perplexed? Do you even know what that word means?

JOEY: [Nodding]. Yeah, it means to be confused.

[Pause].

TEACHER: How did you know that word, Joey?

JOEY: I don’t know. [Shrug] I guess I’m just awesome.

TEACHER: Yeah, and it looks like you’ve got lots of humility, too.

[The boy looks confused].

JOEY: Mr. Z? What does that word mean?

[Fade to black].

Joey has no need for humility, so why should he need to know what it means??
