A Screenplay by James Lark
"

A tale of a group of people growing up in a tourist town.

"
(People playing pool and the jukebox playing in the background)
Random chick: (placing glass down on the counter) You're not going to forget to call me tonight? (Walking away)
J: Of course not. You'll have my full attention when I'm done doing what I have to do.
Random chick: (looking back) OK, I picked up something special for you to unwrap later!
J: I'm looking forward to it. Just give me a couple hours and be ready when I call.
Random chick: Oh I will be!
...
Random customer: Let me get..
Marie: Hold on, can't you see I'm talking. Coño!
Marie: Why do they fall for your bullshit? 
J: It's not bullshit. She will have my undivided attention tonight. (laughing) Tomorrow's another story. 
Marie: I see. So how come you never tried giving me your undivided attention?
J: You know I can't f**k with you! I have to see you damn near every day.
Marie: What does that have to do with anything? 
J: You know what I'm about! I'm not trying to s**t where I eat. 
Marie: So if I didn't work her and I was just visiting, you would make time for me?
J: (laughing) It depends on how long you are staying for. I have commitment issues.
Marie: Boy you make no damn sense. You're f*****g retarded.
J: Nah fo'real though, you still f*****g with Juan, right? 
Marie: Something like that. (smiling) What you scared of him?
J: No temo a nadie! 
Marie: Así que ahora usted habla español!
J: Only when I need to make a point. (Laughing)
Marie: (rambling in really fast broken English and Spanish)
J: Slow down you lost me like twenty syllables ago.
Marie: Give me your hand.
J: Que?
Marie: Just give it to me. ( takes his hand and scratches her fingers in his palm ) Do you know what that means?
J: (grinning) Yeah!! Girl you better stop playing.
Marie: Who said I was playing?
Random customer: Let me get..
J: She's closing down early tonight. (reaching in his pocket) Last rounds on me! 
Marie: And why am I doing that?
J: (climbing over the bar) I'm changing my plans so I can see if you're really with it. 
(Marie taking orders and pouring drinks)
Marie: But I thought...
J: (placing his arms around her waist from behind) Just tell everybody you closing down early tonight.
Marie: But...
J: (whispering as he kisses her neck) I thought you weren't playing?
Marie: (sighing) I'm not, but there's still people here.
J: (unbuttoning her jean) I don't see anyone but you!
Marie: mmm...(grinding her a*s against him) F**k... J: (rubbing her breast, shoulders, then belly) Your skin is so beautiful and soft... (sliding his hand in between her jeans and thong) Do you want me to stop?
Marie: No.

....

Los: Are you sure you want to do this?
J: Yeah I've been thinking about it for a minute.
Los: I can't believe you're going to stop. We getting money right now.
J: Man I got like 500 stacked and I'm going to leave Dre my connect.
Los: Dre!? N***a are you crazy!?

Los: True, but Dre? Come on, he plays around to f*****g much and likes to run his mouth.

J: Plus my girl is starting to wonder what I'm doing and we really haven't been kicking it lately.
Los: Your girl... (laughing) which one n***a? You're f*****g with a different chick up in her every day.
J: Those are just short stays (laughing) My main girl ain't coming up in here or getting involved in any of this s**t.
Los: What about Marie?
J: She knows what that was about. I wanted to f**k, she wanted dick and that was it.

Renee: Boy please! I know how old you really are. 20.
J: 21in 36 days. (Laughing)
Renee: (giggling) Just because you don't get carded, it doesn't make you grown.

(Dial tone, dialing numbers, ringing)
Renee: Hey Jackie!
Jackie: Renee? Hey girl! What you up to?
Renee: I'm out with JaSun.
Jackie: I thought you were breaking up with his cheating a*s.
Renee: I was then I wasn't. 
Jackie: Wasn't?
Renee: Yeah. He came and picked me up from work. We walked down the boardwalk, stopped to eat and talked like we use to do.
Jackie: What did he buy you? 
Renee: (laughing) Why do you think he brought me something? 
Jackie: Because eveytime he f***s up he buys you something. (Laughing)
Renee: Earrings. But I didn't take any money from him. 
Jackie: Where are you at now? 
Renee: We stopped at a bar by the casino so he could talk to some people.
Jackie: Was a Spanish girl named Marie there?
Renee: Yeah, how did you know? 
Jackie: That foul mother f****r!!!
Renee: Why?
Jackie: That's the girl I heard he was f*****g with.
Renee: I can tell she likes him but I know he wouldn't f**k with her.
Jackie: And why is that?
Renee: Because she's tall, ghetto and...
Jackie: And what? Listen Chis and her boyfriend are real cool
Renee: Chris?
Jackie: Yes, Chris the one that use to hang with Keith. 
Renee: I just ran into him.
Jackie: I know I told him where you worked. I know you had a crush on him since back in the day and I thought you where breaking up with J.
Renee: What did he say about JaSun? 
Jackie: Well her boyfriend messed up some money and...
Renee: Drug money?? JaSun doesn't mess with drugs.
Jackie: Renee come on, you really believe that gambling story he tells you. Like I said, her boyfriend Juan fucked up some money and Dre beat his a*s.
Renee: So what does that have to do with JaSun.
Jackie: Juan found out he was f*****g her and wasn't going to pay for the stuff Dre fronted him.
Renee: So Dre gave Juan drugs, not JaSun?
Jackie: Renee, Jasun sells drugs and cheats on you. You really don't see it?
Renee: (crying) I know. I just didn't want to believe it.
Jackie: Don't even cry over his stupid a*s. F**k him!!
Renee: He's waiting for me know. He thinks I'm talking to my dad. I'll call you back when I get home. 
Jackie: ok. Stop crying and quit his cheating a*s.
Renee: bye 

...
Marie: So girlfriend? 
J: Not right now Ma. 
Marie: Not right now!?? (really really fast Spanish)...f**k you!! (Walks away)
Los: I tried to warn you.
J: F**k it, I'll handle that along with that Dre s**t later. I told him to send Ty.
Los: She's back.
J: So I'll hit you later.
Renee: You ready? 
J: Yeah we can wait out front. 
Renee: Nice meeting you.
Los: You two be safe. Don't do anything I would. 
...

J: Just call me a cab!!
Renee: Let me explain! 
J: Nah, l'm good! You've said enough!
Renee: Don't be like that! You think this is easy for me?
J: Obviously it is! What kind of fucked up reason is that!? We need space because we don't spend time together!
Renee: Really? Would you rather I said it was because of all the other girls you have been f*****g with..
J: What other girls? 
Renee: Don't even try to play stupid! Everybody's telling me you're f*****g around with this b***h and that b***h.. 
J: Who the f**k is telling you that bullshit!? 
Renee: Stop!! You can't even be honest with me now. I know you fucked that b***h I meet tonight !!
J: Who Marie? Please, why would I cheat on you with her? 
Renee: Because you're a f*****g dog!! (tears begin to flow) How many? 
J: How many what?
Renee: How many of these stupid b*****s have you been f*****g with?
J: WHAT THE F**K ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? 
Renee: STOP SCREAMING IN FRONT OF MY F*****G HOUSE! 
J: I'm sorry, stop accusing of s**t I didn't do.
Renee: She called my house!! 
J: Who?
Renee: That Puerto Rican b***h from the bar. I can't believe you introduced me to that b***h. What the f**k is wrong with you!? 
J: What is wrong with you? Why the f**k would I want you to meet some b***h I'm f*****g? That just sounds real f*****g stupi...
Renee: I saw the way she was looking at you and the whole way home I kept hearing her voice in my head. I know that's the b***h that has been playing on my phone.
J: Just because someone is calling you and saying s**t doesn't make it true. You know what I'm out here doing. I don't have time for these stupid b*****s.
Renee: STOP F*****G LYING TO ME!! Stop lying and admit it. You like f*****g around with stupid b*****s and buying them s**t. (still crying) I F*****G HATE YOU!! 
J: So now I'm f**k and tricking? You know me better than that.
Renee: I thought I did... JUST GET THE F**K AWAY FROM ME!? And take these f*****g earrings. (throwing them at him)
J: (walking towards her) Renee...
Renee: (slapping the f**k out of him) I SAID LEAVE!!!
J: (grabbing her) B***H....
