POST GRAD PLANS

An unpopular guy bonds with the popular girl at her going away party when it's revealed they're the only two people who showed up.


EXT. CONDO - NIGHT


RICHARD approaches the front door. He's holding a VERY LARGE PACKAGE, GIFT WRAPPED AND RIBBONED.


He rings the DOORBELL and waits.


NO ANSWER!


He rings the BELL again. Waits. Still no answer.


He tries looking through the PEEPHOLE but it's DARK inside.


Finally he tries the DOOR HANDLE. The door's UNLOCKED. He enters.


INT. CONDO - CONTINUOUS


STROBING LIGHTS paint colors through out the atmosphere. LOUND music is PLAYING.


All this exits Richard who begins to make his way upstairs.


His excitement is cut short as he reaches the main floor and discovers NO ONE!


MORE CLEAR, ABSOLUTELY NO ONE.


INT. CONDO - MAIN FLOOR - CONTINUOUS


Richard slowly makes his way through the room. He notices The banners, balloons and other party accessories that decorate the room.


On COUNTER outside of Kitchen there are tons of snacks.


INT. CONDO - KITCHEN - CONTINUOUS


He makes his way into the kitchen, there’s tons of food laid out on the stove and counters. He wrestles through containers and pots but doesn’t partake.


He looks at the fridge and sees photos, a GIRL in particular catches his eye.


He finally opens fridge and BINGO! BEER BOTTLES.


He takes a bottle. Opens up a drawer and removes a bottle opener. He opens the bottle and takes a sip, immediately spitting it out in the SINK.


As he looks up he can see a reflection coming from the outside Balcony. He can’t make out the reflection but it peeks his interest.


He goes back to the FRIDGE and pulls out two BEERS.


He makes his way toward the Balcony.


EXT. CONDO - BALCONY - CONTINUOUS


Richard enters Balcony . He notices ANNALESE sitting alone on a bench as he approaches.


RICHARD

Hi. I was waiting out front for minutes trying to get someone to answer the door. The door was unlocked so I just let myself in. Didn’t look like anyone was here.


ANNALESE

Makes sense why no one answered the door.


Richard brushes off her words and her tone.


RICHARD

Beer?


He extends the beer toward her.


ANNALESE

I don’t drink.


RICHARD

But there’s a fridge full of alcohol.


ANNALESE

Its for the people who do....

(retracting)

Was for the people who do.


Richard spies a chair opposite from Annalese.


RICHARD

You mind if I?


She shoots him a look.


Richard grabs the chair and sits down.


RICHARD

I’m surprised I’m the first one to show up.


ANNALESE

You’re not the first.


RICHARD

What you mean? Is someone else here.


ANNALESE

No.


RICHARD

Then...


ANNALESE

You’re not the first. You’re the only person showing up.


RICHARD

I don’t understand.


ANNALESE

Everyone else has decided to go to Bellas’ party instead.


RICHARD

Bella decided to have a party the same day as your party?


ANNALESE

Yeah.


RICHARD

But weren’t you all...


ANNALESE

Friends? I thought so.


RICHARD

That’s so messed up. I wonder why everyone decided to go to her party instead of yours?


ANNALESE

There were some people who were on the fence but she used the fact that everyone was going off to college so it made sense to spend the last party with the faces that were going in separate directions.


RICHARD

And you? You’re not going away for College?


ANNALESE

No. I’m staying local. Juco. That was the point I think she won them with.


RICHARD

She brought that up?


ANNALESE

Yes.


RICHARD

Damn. What a bitch. I wonder where she’s going?


ANNALESE
