SCENE 5 - UNDERDOG
(BENDER is staring at some good looking girls and grabs TINY
as he comes by)
I don't want to...
(BENDER punches TINY)
Ow! What did you do that for?
Plenty more where that came from...
(BENDER tries several more punches as TINY uses some folders and papers as a shield)
Cut it out!
Bet you're not so tough without your shield, Captain America.
(BENDER slaps down folders, TINY yelps and BENDER tries a few more punches)
Have you gone crazy?
Something like that.
I won't fight you.
Then I win.
I guess so.
(BENDER says loudly so girls hear him)
Tell me I win.
Fine, you win.
(BENDER punches him)
That's right. I am the alpha dog, baby!
(BENDER does a chest bump against TINY who stumbles back)
What is with you, man?
(BENDER grabs TINY in a headlock)
See her over there?
That her name? Yeah the new one. Yolanda... so hot.
She's why you're acting like an idiot?
(BENDER stops headlock)
Yup... I want to impress her.
(BENDER lets TINY out of headlock)
Great... Glad I could help.
She saw the whole thing. They're laughing. They think I am awesome. Now for the kill.
Not you... Her. Gonna seal the deal.
(BENDER exits. TINY tries to fix himself up and gather papers. BENDER returns and holds out a piece of paper)
Her number. She wants me to give it to
(Says it snotty)
She thought you were cute.
(BENDER walks off in defeat)
Everyone roots for the underdog.
TINY looks at number happily and does a cute little wave.
Some of the students from previous scenes (JIMMY, HARM,
BIFF and BENDER) all standing in a row like a police line up (i.e. The Usual
Suspects movie poster).
PRINCIPAL enters adjusting his pants in the rear. He throws a
detention slip at each of them as he walks by them saying:
Detention... detention... detention... detention....
When he gets to JIMMY he gets an angry look and throws
multiple detention slips at him.
Detention, detention, detention.
Principal goes out adjust his rear and HARM gives JIMMY a
little smile when he isn't looking at her.
