                                   JEFF

                         I can't STAND Mean Girls!



                                   MIKE

                         That bad, huh?



                                   JEFF

                         It's all this petty, bitchy, little

                         bullshit all the time, and talking

                         about people behind their backs,

                         and behind each others backs, and

                         acting like little divas, like they

                         think they're better than everybody

                         else, just because they're good

                         looking or something.  What the

                         hell?



                                   MIKE

                         I think that's the whole point. 

                         That's how they're supposed to act.



                                   JEFF

                         It's not how anybody's SUPPOSED to

                         act!  What about being nice to each

                         other once in awhile, and sharing

                         and cooperating and not being an

                         asshole all the time.



                                   MIKE

                         That wouldn't be much of a movie,

                         would it?



                                   JEFF

                         It'd be a TERRIBLE movie!



                                   MIKE

                         Then why do you want it to be that

                         way?



                                   JEFF

                         What, like I'm the only one? 

                         Everybody wants to be treated like

                         a decent human being.  Are you

                         saying you don't?



                                   MIKE

                         Not when I go to the movie theatre.



                                   JEFF

                         When you go to the movies, you want

                         people to be rude to you, and talk

                         during the film and put popcorn

                         down your shirt?



                                   MIKE

                         No, I don't want to be treated

                         badly AT the movies, but I want the

                         people IN the movies to treat each

                         other badly.  It's called conflict.



                                   JEFF

                         Yeah, I know what it's called, I'm

                         not an idiot.



                                   MIKE

                         But you'd rather have movies with

                         no conflict?



                                   JEFF

                         [No!]  Without conflict there'd be

                         nothing to watch.  It'd just be a

                         bunch of nice people sittin' around

                         shootin' the shit for two hours.



                                   MIKE

                         And yet your big problem with the

                         movie "Mean Girls" is that the

                         girls aren't nice to each other.



                                   JEFF

                         No!  My problem with MEAN GIRLS is

                         that they're not nice to me.  I

                         haven't SEEN the movie.  It's

                         supposed to be good, though.



                                   MIKE

                         So you can't stand... mean girls.



                                   JEFF

                         No!  They drive me nuts.



                                   MIKE

                         And this has nothing to do with the

                         movie.



                                   JEFF

                         There's more to life than movies,

                         Mike!



                                                              BLACKOUT.
