Moments with Joey - Career Opportunities

Pin It

SCENE 1, INTERIOR. NOON, CLASSROOM. The teacher is helping a few students with their assignments at the back kidney table. As they watch the teacher enter scores on the computer, move from student to student with assignments, and call other students back to task in the classroom, the kids at the table start a discussion on careers.

BECKY: When I grow up, I think I want to be a teacher…just like Mr. Z.

MARK: Not me; teachers have to work way to hard.

TANNER: I want to be an airline pilot.

JENNY: I don’t know what I’m going to be…

JOEY: I’m going to be Spiderman.

[Pause]

TEACHER: Spiderman? Wouldn’t you have to be bitten by a radioactive spider first?

JOEY: Oh, yeah…I’ll have to find one of those.

TEACHER: Well, since they have those in all the pet stores, that shouldn’t be a problem.

[The boy thinks for a second].

JOEY: Maybe I’ll find one in the neighborhood.

TEACHER: Good luck with that...

[Pause]

JOEY: You know what, Mr. Z? I’d save you every time someone was jealous of you and threw you off a cliff because of your handsomeness…

TEACHER: Um...thanks, Joey.

JOEY: I think I’d be saving you a lot.

[Fade to black]

There's a reason I'm not a teach. I'd be falling for those lines every time.

Ah that Joey, he's such an out of the box thinker ;o)

Nice to know that you have a person ready and willing to save you every time you get thrown off a cliff because of your handsomeness.

Loving that Joey - I see a bright future for him. Now, just where can we find the radioactive spider?

Now if that ain't a self-esteem booster...I don't know what is??

So how does it feel to have a built in bodygaurd just to protect your handsomeness? :) Love that Joey.

With a kid like that you never know whether to melt and say "thank you" or check to see why they're being so nice.

I had no idea there were so many people lying in wait to throw you off cliffs!

I bet he would have to save you a lot too :)
