6. Sunday Bloody Sunday

WORMER VO:

Falling. That’s all I could remember. Then the pain that soon followed.

 

EXT – COURT YARD

DESIREE:

Okay. Now aim your gun and fire.

DEREK:

Do you think we should really be wasting bullets?

DESIREE:

It’s called target practice for a reason. Now eye up your shot and fire.

DEREK:

Fine.

(DEREK aims and fires)

DESIREE:

Good shot. You got it right in the head.

DEREK:

Not as good as you though. You’re a natural.

DESIREE:

I learned from Wallace. He’s the best.

DEREK:

That he is.

(Pause)

DESIREE:

That was a nice prayer you lead us in.

DEREK:

Thanks. I figured somebody should do it.

DESIREE:

Honestly, it was better than anything Irving would have said.

DEREK:

You don’t have to be so generous.

DESIREE:

It’s the truth. Irving’s just lost his touch with words. He’s a good leader but his empathy has gotten a bit out of whack.

DEREK:

At least he has a better grip on his mouth than Wallace.

(The two laugh)

DESIREE:

Wallace means well. He’s just a little rough around the edges.

DEREK:

I know. I’ve dealt with people like him before.

DESIREE:

You know Derek? I need to tell you something. I-

(A large explosion is heard)

DEREK:

What the fuck was that!?

DESIREE:

Sounds like it came from the roof.

(JOEL enters)

JOEL:

Is everyone alright?

DESIREE:

What was that?

JOEL:

I don’t know. I was just passing by and heard a loud boom.

(A second explosion is heard)

DESIREE:

What the hell is going on?

DEREK:

It sounds like it’s coming from the front of the school.

JOEL:

You two stay here. I’ll go check it out.

DESIREE:

No, Joel! You’ll need backup-

JOEL:

I’ll be fine. Stay here! That’s an order!

(He exits)

 

INT – WORMERS OFFICE

IRVING:

Wallace, come in! What is going on up there? Wallace?

(The walkie-talkie sizzles)

WALLACE:

Irving. They’re here.

IRVING:

Who’s here?

WALLACE:

They are. They blew up the fence with an RPG. They’re coming in. Run! Run!

(The walkie-talkie dies)

IRVING:

Wallace? Damn, it died.

(FREEMAN and YOLANDA enter)

YOLANDA:

We heard explosions.

IRVING:

Yolanda, Freeman! It’s starting.

FREEMAN:

Are you sure?

IRVING:

Yes. Pick up any weapon you can and kill anything that moves. Dead or alive.

YOLANDA:

You don’t have to tell me twice.

(Everyone exits)

 

INT – MAIN HALLWAY

(The front doors blow open and in spill OLC and his men)

OLC:

Kill everyone except for the ones I told you to keep alive. I want them for my wall.

WES:

You heard the man!

CHET:

Let’s tear this fucker down!

(The sounds of a riot fill the hallways)

 

EXT – ROOF

WALLACE:

Wormer, are you alright?

WORMER:

Ah, fuck! My arm is banged up pretty bad.

WALLACE:

Can you move?

WORMER:

Yeah but it still hurts.

WALLACE:

Come on. We need to get off this roof before it caves in.

WORMER:

But Olc and his crew are down there.

WALLACE:

Do you want a fighting chance?

(Pause)

WORMER:

Dammit, help me up.

INT – HALLWAY

(GHOST is heard running towards the exit)

HUE:

Hey Ghost, where are you heading?

GHOST:

We need to get out of here! Didn’t you hear the front doors being kicked in?

HUE:

We’re not leaving, Ghost. We have a fighting chance.

CHET:

Oh is that right, Hue?

(HUE turns around to see CHET)

HUE:

Oh shit!

(CHET swipes at CHET with his blade arm. The blade slices CHET’s cheek)

CHET:

Ah, fuck! That hurt dammit!

HUE:

Run Ghost! Get help!

(GHOST opens the exit door and escapes)

CHET:

That’s a nice blade, Hue. I’m only imagining what happened to your hand.

HUE:

Step back Chet. I don’t want to hurt you.

CHET:

Yes you do. You want to fillet me like a fish.

HUE:

I trusted you, Chet! You made me believe you. I almost killed innocent people!

CHET:

And now it’s my turn.

(CHET shoots HUE in the kneecap)

HUE:

Ah!

(HUE falls down)

CHET:

Yeah, that was your kneecap. That’s one of the most painful places to be shot, if not thee most painful place to be shot. Now I hate to be unequal in this situation so let’s make sure we get both of these kneecaps looking very bloody and bruised.

(CHET shoots HUE’s other kneecap)

HUE:

AH! Stop it, please.

CHET:

Stop? Okay.

(CHET shoots HUE in the head)

CHET:

I’m done.

 

INT – NURSES OFFICE

(WALLACE enters with WORMER)

WALLACE:

It’s okay, Wormer. We’re in the nurse’s office now. Kenneth! We need you!

WORMER:

Jesus.

WALLACE:

What?

WORMER:

There’s at least four wine bottles scattered all over the floor.

WALLACE:

I’ll be damned.

(KENNETH enters. He’s in a drunken haze)

KENNETH:

What you need me for?

WALLACE:

Are you fucking drunk?

KENNETH:

What’s it to yah?

WALLACE:

This is no time to be fucking plastered! We have a man down and the front lines have been penetrated.

KENNETH:

Not my problem.

WORMER:

Wallace, just take Betsy and my gun. Go fight. Kenneth and I are obviously too out of it to join.

(WALLACE looks at KENNETH)

WALLACE:

I’ll be back to take care of you personally.

(WALLACE takes the weapons and leaves)

WORMER:

Any more wine left behind?

KENNETH:

Just one bottle. I was saving it for a special occasion.

WORMER:

This might be that occasion.

INT – CAFETERIA

(JOEL enters to find LUKE)

JOEL:

Luke! We need to get you out of here!

LUKE:

Is everything okay?

JOEL:

No. Everything is not okay. Come on, we’re taking you out the back way of the school and onto my old truck.

(Suddenly bullets start flying in)

JOEL:

Down!

(LUKE and JOEL hit the ground)

LUKE:

I’m scared, Joel!

JOEL:

Me too, Luke! But don’t worry. Everything is going to be okay. Just hold my hand and I’ll guide you to the back of the cafeteria.

(The two start to move)

JOEL:

Keep your head down!

LUKE:

Yes, Joel!

(The two walk towards the exit)

JOEL:

We’re almost there, Luke. We’re almost-

(JOEL’s head explodes)

LUKE:

JOEL!

(We hear OLC laughing)

OLC:

I got him! Hahaha! That’s for not giving me a fire truck for Christmas yah dick! Hahaha!

WES:

Sir, the kid is still heading for the exit.

(LUKE exits through the doors)

OLC:

Send some men after him.

 

INT – HALLWAY

(IRVING mows down the hall of men with an automatic. WALLACE shows up)

IRVING:

Wallace!

WALLACE:

Where’s everybody else?

IRVING:

I don’t know!

WALLACE:

I’ll go find them.

IRVING:

You do that and hurry. I don’t know how much longer we can hold out.

(WALLACE runs off)

 

EXT – ROOF

(DESIREE and DEREK climb up on the roof)

DESIREE:

Should we really be up here on the roof?

DEREK:

It’s safer than down there.

DESIREE:

Oh my God. Look.

(The two look at the destruction down below)

DEREK:

Shit.

DESIREE:

Wait, I see something!

DEREK:

What?

DESIREE:

Over here behind the school.

(The two rush over to the back ledge)

DEREK:

Is that Ghost and Luke?

DESIREE:

Yeah. They’re in an old truck!

DEREK:

That’s it. That’s our ticket out of here.

DESIREE:

Derek, where are you going?

DEREK:

We gotta flush everyone out. Tell our guys to get out back and onto the truck.

DESIREE:

There’s no time! This place is falling apart as we speak.

DEREK:

There’s always time, Dez. Believe me.

(DEREK heads down the ladder)

 

INT – HALLWAY

YOLANDA:

Die motherfuckers!

(YOLANDA shoots at the enemies)

YOLANDA:

Freeman, I’m out!

FREEMAN:

I’m here, babe!

(FREEMAN slashes at the enemies with his machete hand)

CHET:

Well isn’t this sweet? One armed Freeman and his new little girlfriend, fighting till the end of time?

FREEMAN:

Go to hell Chet!

CHET:

Strong words, big guy! Why don’t you put your gun down and show me what yah got?

YOLANDA:

Just shoot him, Freeman.

FREEMAN:

Gladly.

(FREEMAN puts his gun up when we hear)

OLC:

Freeze!

(OLC steps out into the hallway with twenty men)

OLC:

You’re surrounded. Put the gun down now, stubby.

FREEMAN:

I’d rather die.

OLC:

That could be arranged.

CHET:

Oh and Olc, as a little gift, look what I found lounging in the nurse’s office.

(WES brings forth WORMER and KENNETH)

YOLANDA:

No!

WORMER:

Put me down, dammit!

KENNETH:

So you shmucks think you can take me!? Go on! I stabbed a cashier once!

OLC:

Thank you Chet. This is certainly a nice surprise. Now what to do, what to do. Hm.

(Pause)

OLC:

I got it. Freeman, you are going to walk up to this man and show him the error of his ways.

FREEMAN:

What are you talking about?

OLC:

This man right here-

KENNETH:

Kenneth!

OLC:

Thank you. Kenneth right here stabbed a clerk, correct? Well it’s time for him to learn his lesson. You are going to walk right up to him and stab him with you machete arm. Then he’s going to choke on his own blood and die.

FREEMAN:

Fuck you.

OLC:

Fuck me?

WES:

Don’t say that.

OLC:

I teach lessons as a rule. You should know that. Now walk over and stab this man in the stomach.

FREEMAN:

I said “Fuck You.”

OLC:

….what would your son be thinking about you right now?

FREEMAN:

Jeremy?

OLC:

Stab this man for Jeremy.

(Pause)

FREEMAN:

Jeremy’s not here right now. But if he were here. He’d say fuck you.

(Pause)

OLC:

…..Hahahaha!

(OLC shoots FREEMAN in the head)

YOLANDA:

Nooo! NO! Not him. Why’d you do this? Not Freeman! You fucking monster! Why!? Why!?

OLC:

Sometimes you got to do the dirty work yourself in order to prove a point. Chet?

CHET:

Right away.

(CHET pulls out a knife)

CHET:

Any last words?

KENNETH:

It’s funny. Never have I thought I would hear those words after being let out of jail. But here I am…hearing those words eventually.

CHET:

I know. Life’s a bitch, ain’t it?

(CHET stabs KENNETH in the stomach)

WORMER:

Damn you all to hell.

OLC:

I guess it’s your turn.

(OLC points his gun at WORMER)

IRVING:

NO!

(Everyone turns to see IRVING)

IRVING:

There needs to be no more bloodshed. I surrender. Let the principal go.

OLC:

Wise man. Chet, go fetch the man.

(CHET walks over and grabs IRVING)

OLC:

Good.

(OLC shoots WORMER in the head)

IRVING:

No! I thought we had a trade for Wormer’s life!

OLC:

Eh, I lied. Come on men, let’s go.

WES:

What about Derek?

OLC:

If we can’t find him, we can’t find him. Besides, we have someone better.

CHET:

Who?

OLC:

The poontang. Bring the girl.

YOLANDA:

What!? No!

(WES grabs YOLANDA)

OLC:

Come on everyone. Let’s go.

(OLC and his men drag their two prisoners away)

 

EXT – BACK OF SCHOOL

LUKE:

Where is everyone?

GHOST:

I have no clue.

(The back door opens and out walks WALLACE)

GHOST:

Wallace!

WALLACE:

You don’t want to go in there…

LUKE:

Are they gone?

WALLACE:

Well…yeah…

LUKE:

Then we’re heading on in.

WALLACE:

You really shouldn’t.

GHOST:

We are.

(They head on in)

 

INT- HALLWAY

(The group reconfigures among the hallway of death)

DEREK:

Jesus.

DESIREE:

We were too late.

WALLACE:

I’m sorry everyone. Olc just took everyone out.

GHOST:

I just ran like a coward. I was a fool.

LUKE:

It’s okay. I ran too.

WALLACE:

There’s no need to blame yourselves, boys. We did the best we could.

(A gurgling is heard)

DEREK:

Oh God.

(Everyone walks over and see’s KENNETH, now transformed into a zombie)

DESIREE:

It’s Kenneth.

LUKE:

He was never put down.

WALLACE:

I got it. You can look away if you like.

(WALLACE shoots KENNETH in the head)

WALLACE:

Rest in peace you drunken bastard.

GHOST:

Where’s Yolanda and Irving’s bodies?

WALLACE:

I don’t know.

ROSS:

Help me, please help me.

DESIREE:

What’s that?

WALLACE:

Well holy shit. Look over there…

(Everyone looks to see an injured member of OLC’s team in the corner of the hall)

GHOST:

Is that?

LUKE:

A member of Olc’s crew.

ROSS:

Please. Help me.
