SCENE 1, INTERIOR. AFTERNOON. CLASSROOM. The class is lining up to leave for P.E. As they move to the appropriate lines, the teacher reminds them that they are always to listen to other teachers even more than they do to him. He then tells them that they are all number one in his book and to make him proud. Several students nod as file out the door; one of the boys lingers behind. As the last of the kids leave the room, the boy turns to his teacher.
JOEY: Mr. Z, I have a pea shooter.
TEACHER: Ewww, Joey, if you need to use the bathroom then just go. It’s down the hallway and to the right. [The teacher points down hallway]. Use the one that says little boys because if you walked into the girls’ it would be embarrassing.
[The boy stands, confused for a second before breaking into fits of laughter].
JOEY: Oh, I get it!
[The laughter continues for several more moments].
TEACHER: So, are you ready to head to P.E. now then, Muffin?
JOEY: [The boy nods his head with another giggle]. Yeah.
JOEY: Mr. Z?
JOEY: I feel glad that I’m number one in your book Mr. Z, and not number two.
[Fade to Black].
