In our last Episode, Stacy had just came across a group of women trying to organize a protest rally to protest the war. As we pick up the scene, Stacy has just been asked to join in. Let's read...
STACY (In shock at what she's seeing) - This is absolutely insane.
MONICA - No it's not.
SARAH (With a shocked look on her face) - You, of all people, should know that the government is covering up the real reason why our husbands and children were sent over there. I'm shocked.
STACY (Shocked & Disgusted) - I'm shocked that you guys are even attempting this. Talk about spitting on their graves.
KELLY (Stunned at Stacy's comment) - Stace, our husbands fought and died to give us the chance to hang onto the right to hold this rally. How is THAT spitting on their graves?
STACY - It just is.
TAMARA (Arriving out of the blue, taking Stacy by surprise) - Stacy, you and I both know that the reasons why the war in Iraq were all bogus to begin with. Now, look at the end result. Iraq had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with the attack on this country, yet our government insists they played a role. I say prove it. THAT is why we're here holding this rally. It's
time to bring our troops home. It's time to bring our husbands home. WAY....WAY too many of our loved ones have died already.
STACY (Shaking her head and looking at Tamara with a feeling of self-centeredness and disgust on her face) - That is so self-centered. You all disgust me. Our government is telling us the truth.
Stacy begins to walk away even though she begins to wonder about that last statement and Monica sees it.
MONICA - (Shouting out at Stacy in the hopes she gets through to her) - You're in a state of denial if you believe that.
Stacy stops dead in her tracks knowing she had been caught saying something she didn't completely believe, but wasn't completely convinced otherwise. She eventually turns around to kook at Monica.
KELLY - Care to join us now Stacy?
Just then, another woman, Debbie, enters the scene. Tamara sees her and attempts to introduce her to Stacy.
DEBBIE - Hey girls. (Noticing Stacy) - Well...Who do we have here?
TAMARA (Looking halfway at Stacy, halfway at Debbie) - Hopefully a new member of our group. Debbie, I'd like you to meet Stacy. Stacy....Debbie.
DEBBIE (Cheerfully & with a smile as she shakes Stacy's hand) - Hi.
STACY (Non-Chalantly and without hardly any emotion at all as she shakes Debbie's hand) - Hi.
TAMARA - Well....I'll leave the two of you alone to get acquainted. Turning and now looking at Debbie - I've got some signs to finish putting together.
Tamara waves at Stacy as she leaves to tend to the signs laying on the ground not far from her.
DEBBIE (Smiling at Tamara as she leaves and in her usual soft nearly squealy voice) - Okay. (Turning back to Stacy) - So....You're the newbie everyone back in support group has been talking about....
STACY - (Feeling dubiously honored, yet otherwise not very special and shrugging her shoulders, flailing her arms in the air) - Live and in person...
KELLY - She's not convinced that what we're doing is the right thing.
Stacy looks at Kelly as if to say "Thank you very much, now mind your own fuckin' business...." Kelly reponds by going back to what she was doing.
DEBBIE (Shocked) - You're not?? Why??
STACY - I just think you guys are spitting on your husband's graves - MY husband's grave - by doing this. I mean if Leo were here....
DEBBIE (Intentionally interrupting Stacy) - He'd SUPPORT it. Why? Because he would know it's how we feel.
STACY - (Shaking her head but not surprised by Debbie's comment about Leo's possible thoughts on the pending rally) - You don't know Leo then.
DEBBIE (Making Stacy an offer) - Well then, maybe the two of us should go have a cup of coffee somewhere so we can discuss this and hopefully convince you to join us. How 'bout it?
STACY (Shaking her head with a smirk on her face) - I honestly don't know why I'm doing this...
DEBBIE - Trust me. You won't be making a mistake. (To Kelly) - Kelly, you and the rest of the girls make sure Stacy has a sign. Even if you have to use one of the extras.
KELLY (Acknowledging Debbie's comments despite not even looking at her) - Got it chief.
DEBBIE (Back to Stacy) - C'mon. The Star Burst Coffee House is just right down the street. Let's go in there for our cup of coffee. Then we'll talk...
STACY (Still wondering why she's even bothering to go with Debbie and still shaking her head with a smirk on her face) - Like I said....I don't know why I'm even doing this....I must be losing it...
Debbie & Stacy walk away from the rest of the group.
SCENE TWO - Crime Scene At Liquor Store
Cedarville PD Detectives David & Marcie Grant have just arrived at a crime scene involving the robbery of a liquor store resulting in the serious injury of the store owner. As we pick up the scene, David & Marcie are exiting their vehicle just as the injured owner is being placed into a waiting ambulance.
DAVID (To one of the patrol officers who took a statement) - What have we got here?
PATROLMAN (Responding to David's question) - We got a robbery. Took the cash. Cleaned out the ATM. The whole nine yards.
MARCIE - We saw someone being put in an ambulance. Any witnesses? How'd it all go down?
PATROLMAN - Yeah. The guy in the ambulance is the store owner. Was beaten up pretty badly. Other than that, he's okay though. Got one witness, but she ain't talkin' You know HEAR No Evil....SEE No Evil if ya know what I mean.
The patrolman acts as though he's giving out a hint that the witness isn't a very cooperative one.
DAVID - (Rolling his eyes in the back of his head and sighs with a smirk on his face) - Uhh....Huh. WON-DER-FUL. Anything else?
PATROLMAN - Like I said, she ain't talkin'.
MARCIE - Determined to talk to the witness - Ohh really?? We'll just see about that. Point her out to me.
DAVID - Anything else?
PATROLMAN (To Marcie) - Be my guest. My partner and I have been trying to get her to talk for the last 10 to 15 minutes. (To David) - Aside from that, just your usual convienence store robbery.
DAVID - Thanks.
PATROLMAN - You bet. Anytime.
The patrolman points out the witness to David & Marcie. It is someone they know very well from all the run-ins with the law that the person has had with them. The witness is dressed as a prostitute and is a WELL known "Regular Resident Visitor" to the Cedarville PD & City Jail. As Marcie rapidly approaches the witness with David not far behind in tow, we hear the witness say that she was just simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, though is thankful the robbers presumably never saw her
MARCIE (As she & David shows her badge & approaches the witness and talking sarcastically) - Well....Well....Well....If it isn't the city tramp herself, Shannon Westbrook...What happened Shannon? Did you get lost on your way home somehow? Or did that pimp of yours finally get tired of you and decide to dump you?
SHANNON (Recognizing David, who ultimately shows his badge, & Marcie & knowing that she's on her way to jail now for the way she's dressed as she grumbles to herself) - Ohh No...I wish you would...
DAVID - Shannon, we understand you were a witness in this robbery.
SHANNON (In her usual street-smart attitude) - Yeah, so what if I was?
MARCIE - So how 'bout you stop with the attitude and tell us what went down...
SHANNON (Continuing on in her street-smart attitude and looking at Marcie from the ground up as she thumbs her nose at Marcie) - Forget you bitch. I ain't tellin' you pigs nothin'
As Shannon tries to walk away by walking across the street in the middle of it, Marcie slams Shannon against the hood of a parked car and threatens to handcuff Shannon by holding both of her writsts. The left one behind her back while the right one is on the hood of the car with Marcie's hand wrapped around it as Marcie leans forward and just off to the right facing Shannon's right ear.
MARCIE (Almost yelling given the close proximity of her mouth to Shannon's right ear) - You've got a choice missy. You can either tell us what we want to know RIGHT HERE & NOW or we'll haul your ass in and charge you with prostitution. (Now sarcastic and waving her head in several directions) - Ohh yeah, while we're at it, we'll also ticket you with a moving violation and tack on the charge of hindering a police investigation as well - just for grins. YOUR choice missy.
Shannon looks over to her right to see Marcie sarcastically grinning from ear to ear. Meanwhile David just looks at Shannon and smiles almost laughingly at her predictament.
SHANNON (Stunned & shocked as she questions the legality of Marcie being able to carry out her threat and being responding to the allegations in in (again!) her street-smart attitude) - Prostitution? Moving violation? Hinder a Pig Investigation? Gimme a fuckin' break. (To the people around her) - Did anybody here see me solicit anyone for sex or violate a move OR hinder a cop investigation?
No one bothers to pay attention, much less answer her question, as everyone is watching the unfolding scene down the street back at the store.
SHANNON (Noticing the response to her three-part question after only a few seconds and in her usual street-smart attitude) - Nope. Don't look like it to me.
DAVID - You did try to cross the street while in the middle of it Shannon. You're also a known prostitute. Hell, you even look the part. Just look at yourself. Even Actress Lindsey Lohan owns less skimpier and provocative outfits than the one you've got on.
Marcie lets up on Shannon after frisking her, putting everyting she pulls out of Shannon's pockets onto the hood of the car and then back in once the pocket is cleared of all objects and no illegal contraband has been revealed, but she and David continue to keep Shannon cornered just in case she tries to bolt again.
MARCIE - One of these days....YOU ARE GOING TO GET HURT - OR WORSE KILLED. How many times have we told you this now? Fifty? Sixty? Seventy? How many times Shannon?
SHANNON (Knowing she's been told so many timess that she doesn't even remember anymore) - More times than I care to remember.
DAVID - Yeah? How do you think that looks on your rap sheet, huh?
MARCIE (Continuing her lecture to Shannon) - And given that attitude of yours, you become less believable and credible every day. And to think you wonder why David & I don't come to you when we're looking for CI's....
David shakes his head as he just looks at Shannon.
DAVID (Walking up to Shannon's left side) - One of these days Shannon, we're find YOUR CORPSE in a dumpster. Now, how do you think your loved ones are going to react when we tell them that you were killed because you were a hooker who's also a known small-time junkie?
Shannon looks at Marcie for a sympathetic look, but doesn't get one. In fact, Marcie looks at her as if to say "Don't look at me".
SHANNON (Getting agitated & feeling harrassed) - Man...I thought you two wanted to talk to me about the robbery.
DAVID (With a smirk on the left side of his face and raising his eyebrows) - Yeah we do.
MARCIE - So start talkin'
David & Marcie are all ears as David prepares to write down what Shannon says while he and Marcie continue to ask questions, but Shannon has other ideas.
SCENE THREE - Cedarville High School - 2nd Floor Hallway
It is now over an hour later and 2nd period classes have just finished. As we pick up the scene, Aruba Al Faheed is at his locker swapping books and other stuff needed for his next class when he is approached by some of his friends, who are trying to get him involved with some school activities. Among them is his girlfriend Ashleigh Wright, who's been hoping that Aruba would ask her out to the school prom. Meanwhile, some other students, who many believe to be "outcasts" amongst the school's student population, have taken a more discreet, if not "clandestine"
approach as they look on nearby and wonder if Aruba is just as loyal to THEM as he is to his other, more "normal" friends.
ASHLEIGH (Smiling at Aruba, who is her boyfriend, as she approaches) - Hey there sweetie.
ARUBA (Responding in a depressed & uncheerful manner as he continues to sort his books) - Hey babe.
ASHLEIGH - (Noticing Aruba's obvious depressed look) - What's up? I can tell what isn't
ARUBA - Still depressed & uncheerful - Not much.
ASHLEIGH (Being intentionally nosy to get to the bottom of Aruba's troubles) - Did you have another fight with your parents?
ARUBA (Adamant & wanting Ashleigh to stop bugging him) - I don't wanna talk about it.
ASHLEIGH (Getting the message & backing off) - Okay....Okay. Sorry I asked...
ARUBA (Apologizing for yelling at the girl he loves so deeply) - No. I'm sorry babe. It's just this....'thing'.
ASHLEIGH - (Now not even knowing what Aruba's even talking about) - What "thing'? She shakes her head Aruba....What are you talking about?
ARUBA - (Trying to brush it off as insignificant) - 'Tis nothing.
ASHLEIGH - Well obviously it has to be something or you wouldn't be so....."down" about it.
ARUBA - Told ya it's nothin'.
ASHLEIGH (Knowing that something is up, but realizes she and Aruba must get out of the hallway before the Hall Monitors catch them) - Tell ya what, why don't we skip this class and go into the cafeteria and talk about it.
ARUBA (Who would love nothing more than to skip his next class as its one he's had dozens of times before and knows the teacher generally doesn't mind if students skip out on class on occasion) - The cafeteria??? We'll most assuredly be caught there.
ASHLEIGH (Knowing that Aruba's right) - Ooo...You're right. Tell ya what. Meet me outside by the oak tree.
ARUBA - Why?
ASHLEIGH (Getting closer and intimate & smiling as she speaks in a soft-tone voice) - Well...I thought I would take your mind off whatever is troubling you and talk about more pleasant things. Like the prom.
Aruba feels Ashleigh working her hands up and down his body and beginning to feel aroused.
ARUBA (Smiling & knowing just EXACTLY what Ashleigh wants and knowing it's something he's been wanting to do with her ever since they first met) - Yeah. All right. Meet ya there.
Ashleigh & Aruba part ways. Meanwhile, some of Aruba's friends, who have and share the lockers around him, all joke around with him as they gather their books and head for class.
SCENE FOUR - The Law Offices of Stanley A. Finch
Cassandra Whitmore has gone to see attorney Stanley A. Finch. But what for? As we pick up the scene, she is just arriving for her appointment.
CASSANDRA (To the receptionist) - Excuse me, I'm here to see a Mr. Finch.
RECEPTIONIST (Thumbing through the appointment book) - And your name is...
CASSANDRA - Whitmore. Cassandra Whitmore.
RECEPTIONIST (Looking for Cassandra's name in the book & mumbling to herself in a whisper) - Whitmore....Whit...Ohh yes...Here it is. Have a seat.
Cassandra thanks the receptionist and takes a seat in the waiting room. Just as she does & as the receptionist was going to call Mr. Finch to inform him of Cassandra's arrival, he emerges from his office with a client as they finish their conversation.
RECEPTIONIST (Just catching Mr. Finch before he closed the door) - Excuse me Mr. Finch, but your 11 o' clock is here.
STANLEY - Send 'em in.
The receptionist directs Cassandra into Stanley's office and closes the door behind Cassandra as she leaves the two alone.
STANLEY - What can I do you for, Ms....
CASSANDRA (Answering his question by introducing herself) - Whitmore. Cassandra Whitmore. (Inquisitively in the hopes of jogging Stanley's moemory) I believe we spoke on the phone this morning?
STANLEY - Ahh yes. I remember now. You want to stake a claim towards someone else's estate. Correct?
CASSANDRA - Yes.
STANLEY - Why?
CASSANDRA (Fumbling for an answer out of embarrassment over what she did that involved the person who's name is on the estate) - Well....You see, it's because the deceased is the biological father of my son.
STANLEY - Ohh...I see. And how do you know this?
CASSANDRA - Well...You could say that I was fortunate enough to stumble across a "sympathetic ear" as it were in the personnel lab on base.
Stanley is taking copious notes on his legal pad.
STANLEY - Uhh huh. And this person with a "sympathetic ear" as you put it fits in HOW? What did you say or do? Did you threaten him or her?
CASSANDRA - I didn't threaten her. I just simply told her my story and what I planned to do once I got stateside. After I was done, she was all to eager to give it to me.
STANLEY - Give what to you?
CASSANDRA - A sample of his DNA.
Stanley is shocked and rolls his eyes in the back of his head in disgust at Cassandra's stupidity as he now knows that if he takes her case, he'll have to contend with privacy issues.
STANLEY (Fearing she may have done the worst) - PLEASE tell me you didn't accept it.
She nods in a manner indicative that she did accept it.
STANLEY (Collecting himself) - Okay...Putting aside for a second how this DNA sample was obtained, I have but three questions to ask. 1). Whose DNA is it 2). Who gave you the DNA sample and 3). Can this person be counted on as a reliable witness?
CASSANDRA (Trying to answer Stanley's question, but also trying to keep the identity of her "friend" a secret until she has enough confidence in revealing it to him) - Well, I'll put this way. I think by the time you get through talking to the person who gave me the DNA sample, you'll find that the person whose name is on the estate was a real Johnny Appleseed.
STANLEY - That doesn't answer my questions, Ms. Whitmore.
CASSANDRA - Well...Since you put it that way....The DNA sample is from Leo McFadden. The person who gave me the DNA sample is on this piece of paper. (She hands him a sheet of paper containing the name, address, and phone number of Deborah Stevens) I promised her I wouldn't give it out unless I felt it could benefit the both of us.
Stanley examines the piece of paper with a bit of cynicism and a smirk on his face.
STANLEY - And you believe her to be credible.
CASSANDRA - Yes sir, I do.
Meanwhile...We now pick up the scene at The Commissary pub on Fort Cedar, where we see Deborah enjoying a drink after the protest and rally she attended on base.
SCENE FIVE - Fort Cedar - Commisary Pub
As we pick up the scene in earnest, Monica has approached Debbie (who was the woman alluded to as the woman Cassandra Whitmore got the DNA sample from while working for the base personnel lab in Iraq) to chat with her about her chat with Stacy at the Star Burst.
MONICA - I see you talked her into attending the rally. She was quite the trooper out there.
DEBBIE - Yeah, but to be honest with you, I wasn't very comfortable about doing it, ya know. I was kinda hoping that one of you other girls would've done it instead.
MONICA - Ohh...I see. You mean so you wouldn't have to tell her about that little "tiltilating tryst" that you and Leo had?
DEBBIE - Ohh...You mean that little "tryst" as you put it that conceived my little daughter Tess? I couldn't tell her that. I couldn't bring myself to do it.
MONICA (Being blint) - Well what about your husband? I mean, sooner or later, he's gonna put two and two together and quickly realize that little Tess doesn't look anywhere like him.
And when he does, he's gonna have some questions to which you had better have answers to because it's not like you had kids before you met Doug, ya know.
DEBBIE (Feeling threatened) - Well let him ask them!
I don't need you breaking the news to him. And I also don't need you bugging me about it either.
MONICA - Well I am gonna keep bugging you about it because both of you are my friends and right now, you're hurting him. And i don't like that.
DEBBIE (Not wanting to deal with Monica's interrogation anymore) - Butt out. Just BUTT OUT.
MONICA (Being blunt) - I can't butt out. As I just said, I consider the both of you my friends. And I'll be damned if I'm gonna just sit idly by as you rip his heart out 'cause that's
EXACTLY what're doing. Ripping his heart out. And I won't stand for it.
DEBBIE (Feeling threatened) - Are you threatening me? 'Cause if you are, it ain't working.
MONICA (Being blunt) - I'm not threatening you. I'm just telling it like it is.
DEBBIE - Well I don't see how it's any of your business. So BUTT OUT.
Debbie storms out of the bar
SCENE SIX - Detective Squad Room - Cedarville PD
When we last saw David & Marcie, they were getting a statement from an uncooperative eyewitness to the robbery of a liquor store (and somehow manage to get it). David then asks her (In the only way he knew how to ask such a witness like the one he had before him) if she could identify the perpetrator(s) and wouldn't mind coming down to the police station to identify him/her/them in mug shot books. As we pick up the scene, Shannon (the witness) is still being flippant with the lips as she along with David & Marcie, who just wish she would shut up and stop her blabbering, are about to enter the Detective Squad Room.
DAVID (Tired of listening to Shannon's blabbering) - Blah...Blah...Blah. Yadda.....Yadda....Yadda. C'mon, sit down and shut up.
One of the other detectives walks in and notices Shannon sitting at Marcie's desk
DETECTIVE (Being Sarcastic) - Well.....Well....Well. Look what the cat dragged in.
SHANNON (Being Equally Sarcastic as well as pompant and arrogant) - Ohh...No. Whatever...
DETECTIVE - What'd you do this time? Lemme take a guess. You offered to bang someone who turned out to be an undercover cop. Right?
Shannon looks at the detective as though she was telling him he didn't know what he was talking about and to mind his own business.
CAPTAIN SANCHEZ (Walking into the room & seeing the detective harrassing Shannon) - How 'bout you doing something that these two (Referring to David & Marcie) are trying to do. That is YOUR JOB??
MARCIE - Captain, this is the lone witness in the roberry.
CAPTAIN SANCHEZ - Okay. Come here for a second.
David & Marcie huddle up with the Captain
CAPTAIN SANCHEZ - Did anyone do a background check on her?
DAVID - Near as we could tell...No. Then again, we didn't ask.
CAPTAIN SANCHEZ - Did you do a background check on her?
MARCIE - Well we tried to, but NCIC was down.
CAPTAIN SANCHEZ - Get one.
DAVID - But Captain, she's our only witness.
CAPTAIN SANCHEZ - Consider it eliminating the obvious.
DAVID - Okay...
SCENE SEVEN - Stacy's House
Stacy McFadden has just returned home from the rally and protest at Fort Cedar and is busy with the house cleaning she had planned to do earlier. As we pick up the scene, she is seen dusting off a floor cabinet in the living room where she has some flowers. She is dusting the area where one of the flower vases was when the doorbell rings.
*DOORBELL* Ding dong
STACY (To whomever is on the other side of the door) - Coming. Just a minute.
Stacy moves the vase that had covered the area she had just dusted and then goes to answer the door. Meanwhile, the doorbell rings again.
*DOORBELL* Ding dong
STACY (A little aggrevated and wondering who it is who would want to see her so urgently as she walks briskly to the door) - Keep your shirt on, I'm coming.
She opens the door and finds Brad on the other side
STACY (Somewhat surprised) - Brad.
BRAD (Feeling nervous and wondering what Stacy is thinking) - Hello Stacy. Can I come in? We need to talk.
STACY (Feeling uncomfortable, but knowing she's eventually gonna have to address the issue of a future with Brad anyway) - Umm...Yeah....Sure. Come on in.
Brad walks inside. Stacy shuts the door behind him.
BRAD - Ya know, I just wanted to come over to....umm...apologize and...you know....umm....set things straight. You know....Between us.
STACY - Brad, what on earth for?
BRAD - For blurting out that I loved you when I knew you weren't ready.
STACY - Well I appreciate that Brad, but you really didn't have to.
BRAD - Yeah I did.
STACY - You were just simply telling me how you felt. You should NEVER apologize for that or feel you have a need to. In fact, if ANYONE needs to apologize, it should be ME. I
should've been a little more sensitive.
BRAD - Stace, you were going through hell. I couldn't possibly expect you to accept my love confession.
STACY - But I'm not going through hell now. And I do accept your love confession. And I've been doing some thinking lately. I've been thinking that maybe I love you too.
BRAD (Somewhat surprised) - Really?
STACY - Yeah.
BRAD - What made you change your mind? I mean...Don't get me wrong....I'm glad you changed your mind. I'm just wondering what made you do it?
STACY - I got to thinking of all the times we were seeing each other - going out on dates, and the great times we had when Leo was alive and in Iraq over the holidays.
BRAD (Reminiscing) - Yeah. Those were fun times.
STACY - And then it hit me that I'd be fool if I were to let it all go to waste.
BRAD - What we had back then could never go to waste.
STACY - I know that now. But simple fact is Brad that it almost did and I shouldn't have let it get that far.
BRAD - Forget about it. The main thing is we're back together. We are back together, are we?
STACY (Reservedly, but with a smile) - Yeah.
BRAD (Somewhat surprised at the tone in which Stacy answered his question and detecting her reservation) - You say that with some reservation.
STACY - It's not that. It's just that I don't want to go too fast. I don't want to go too slow either. I think the latter is what almost killed what we had.
BRAD (Looking passionately into Stacy's eyes) - Yeah. I know. I guess what we really had wasn't just a friendship. But a relationship instead.
STACY ILooking passionately into Brad's eyes) - If it was, it was beautiful.
BRAD (Looking even more passionately into Stacy's eyes as he begins to move closer and talking in a near-whisper) - Maybe we can rekindle the magic.
STACY (Looking even more passionately into Brad's eyes as she begins to move closer and also talking in a near-whisper) - Maybe we can.
Brad & Stacy look passionately into each others eyes as they meet for the embrace and ensuing kiss. The first kiss being just a small one as the two of them take one more look into each others eyes, Stacy looking into Brad's eyes as if to say "YES, THIS FEELS RIGHT". Brad, sensing Stacy's desire, starts kissing her passionately
BRAD (Letting up from his kissing and whispering as he looks passionately into Stacy's eyes as he holds and caresses her cheeks as if she was a 1950s movie star while she looks at him passionately) - You have no idea how long I've been waiting for this moment to come.
STACY (Looking at Brad just as passionately and whispering back lustfully) - Yeah I do. It's been too long.
The two of them start kissing with an almost feverish manner. When the two let up, they both look down, then at each other again passionately. And then Brad starts kissing other parts of Stacy's body. Stacy looks up at the ceiling and is completely lost in delirious ecstasy.
