SCENE 1, INTERIOR. MORNING, HALLWAY. The students are taking a three-minute drink and restroom break. As they finish, they group in two lines near the drinking fountain. The teacher stands at the head of the lines, making sure that the kids are not goofing off. One of the fifth grade boys in line is gazing intently at a poster on a nearby wall of different U.S. Landmarks, he turns to face his teacher.
JOEY: Mr. Z, where do geysers come from?
[The teacher’s eyes flick to the poster where an image of Old Faithful can clearly be seen near the bottom right corner].
JOEY: Yeah, how do they start?
TEACHER: Well, geysers first start off as little boy-sers, and then they slowly develop to one day become fully-grown guy-sers…
[The kids standing in line erupt into fits of hysterical laughter. There is a short pause from the boy before his face splits into a huge grin].
JOEY: And when they get old they become ‘geezers’ and get stinky, like my grandpa, right?
[The teacher smiles back].
TEACHER: Yep. [Pause] And that’s something for you to look forward to one day.
