SCENE 1, INTERIOR. MORNING, HALLWAY. The class is coming into the school after the morning bell. As they pass through the doors, they are warmly greeted by their teacher.
TEACHER: Put some smiles on those faces because today we’re going to party like it’s 1999!
[One of the boys lags behind his classmates with a bemused expression on his face].
JOEY: Mr. Z, we’re going to party like it’s 1999?
JOEY: Why 1999?
TEACHER: It’s actually an eighties song reference.
JOEY: Oh, I thought it was because it was the year I was born.
TEACHER: Hmmmm…so would this mean it would actually be a party, or a punishment?
[The boy thinks for a second].
JOEY: Better bring on the tears, Mr. Z.
[Fade to black].
