Environmental Hazards

- Hey, Janine.
- Yeah.
- Hey, hey, Jordan, my man.
- Hey, Navid.
- Oh, cool kicks, Alisa, wow.
- Thanks.
And, Natalie, way to work that Bunsen burner in lab.
Hey, man.
Wong just slammed me with all kinds of homework.
Dude, now how is that funny? I was thinking of something Adrianna said to me last night, you know, after we did it.
Right, of course.
Hey, hey, what's the word? You guys have a good weekend? Oh, yeah.
Finally have a way to get Naomi back.
Are you serious? How? Come on.
He doesn't wanna talk about it.
Leave him alone.
So my weekend was pretty awesome too.
- Oh, yeah, how come? - No reason.
Why? Do I seem different or something? Home boy finally got laid.
Geez, dude, what's up with that? I was trying to keep it on the down low.
But since the cat's out of the bag, it's true.
This guy, no longer a virgin.
Holler! Yeah.
Finally talked Ade into it, huh? No, I didn't have to talk her into anything.
She came back from the beach club Friday, couldn't keep her hands off me.
She showed up all, "I want you, Navid.
" So I gave the girl what she wants.
- Gave her what she wants.
- Put your hand down.
You've reached your high-five limit.
- Really? - Yeah.
You know what? We should go on a double date.
You and Ade and me and this little hottie from English class.
Jasmine Lotan.
You guys know her? Yeah, she's cute.
You guys dating? - We will be once I ask her out.
- Okay.
But seriously, I think it'd be cool to double with you and Ade.
You know, show Jasmine I am friends with respectable couples.
- Sure, yeah.
That sounds fun.
- Great.
Lot of fun.
What colour is that? I love it.
Oh, it's called Dulce de Leche.
I'll get that too.
I've never been here before.
Are they any good? Actually, this is my first time here too.
We just moved nearby.
Oh, "we," as in you and your boyfriend? Yeah, right.
Me and my husband.
You're married.
Of course.
- So how long you been married? - Nineteen years.
- Nineteen years? - I know, it's a long time, huh? I wouldn't believe it myself except my kids are juniors in high school.
You know, I'm such a mom, I actually have pictures.
Well, I don't suppose you wanna see them? Sure, why not? Here we go.
This is my daughter Annie.
And this is my son Dixon.
College is a big decision.
As a junior I'm sure you've already started thinking about where you wanna go.
- Right? - Right.
No, I was gonna do you a favor and save you some time so you can focus on those kids in woodshop or read fashion magazines, your choice.
I will be going to California University.
- CU is certainly a great school.
- It's more than great.
It's perfect.
It's beautiful.
It's where my grandfather went.
He took me there as a kid.
It's just like being on those east coast campuses except weather's great and the people are good looking.
Well, it's definitely important to know what you like.
- But you need to think about - I've thought about everything.
I know exactly how my four years at CU will play out.
Freshman year, I'll pledge Pi Phi no matter how much the DGs beg.
And then sophomore year, well, that is when I'll find my Mr.
Clark - Naomi? - He'll be a Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
- He'll probably play football - Naomi, stop.
CU isn't going to happen.
What do you mean? Your test scores aren't anywhere near what they require.
Neither are your grades.
And you have no extracurricular activities.
But I love it there.
I'm a legacy.
I'm afraid that's not going to be enough.
However, if you wanna stay nearby there are plenty of other schools that are well within your reach, places like Santa Monica Community College.
We're all in the gutter.
Some of us are looking at the stars.
- Hi.
- It's Oscar Wilde.
I had a really good time the other night with you star gazing.
Yeah, me too.
You have any plans after school? Thought I'd hit Chinatown.
There's this Dim Sum place my uncle used to take me there as a kid.
Just really like to get back there, you know, in his memory.
Yeah, sure.
Sure, I will come with you.
Trust me, this is the best meeting.
There are a lot of celebrities.
Can't really tell you who they are because, well, it's anonymous.
Let's just say last time I was here there was someone that rhymes with Ritney Rears.
They also have the best donuts.
None of that powdered sugar business.
I've seen actual fritters.
Listen, today is about you and your accomplishment.
I mean, six months sober, that's a big deal.
Thank you so much for coming to support guys.
It means so much.
Of course.
We would not miss it for the world.
Now, let's get some fritters.
No, no, no, you stay.
I'm gonna go.
Just in case I need muscle to get to the front.
You know how proud I am of you, right? Yes, I do.
- He's so sweet, right? - Yeah, he is.
You're really lucky to have such a great boyfriend.
I know.
I am.
Really lucky.
I agree.
Here you go one apple, one pear.
- Thank you, sweetie.
- I'm gonna find us some seats.
Okay? Oh, my God.
I have to go.
- Why? - I'm sorry.
I'll call you later, okay? What happened? Who is that woman? Jackie, Silver's mom.
I can't remember.
Silver? - Hey.
- Go away and don't come back.
- Wait.
Wait, wait.
Why? - Why? Because you're a junior in high school, that's why.
How? How did you? - Look, Sasha, I can explain - Explain what, that you're not 17? - No, no, I mean, I am, but - But what? I feel like such a fool.
I cannot believe I was actually falling for a high school kid.
- Sasha - No.
Stay away from me.
I'm serious.
Just stay away.
- You forgot your fritter.
- Come on in.
I'm sorry I left the meeting.
- I just couldn't deal.
- No, I totally get it.
You know, your mom got a chip tonight.
- Thirty days sober.
- Good for her.
She talked to me after.
She said she really wants to see you.
She says she's changed.
Like I haven't heard that before.
No, I know.
I'm just saying she seems really different.
She's an addict.
Yeah, and once addicts sober up they become different people.
When I think about what I used to be like, so sneaky, manipulative, a liar.
And you've changed? Really? What's that supposed to mean? Nothing.
Just forget it.
No, you obviously meant something by that.
What is it? What? I saw you kiss Teddy at the beach club.
Look, I I made a mistake.
Please don't tell Navid.
I'm not going to, okay? - But you should.
- No.
Look, these things, they don't just go away.
You think that they will, you want them to, but they don't.
Trust me.
I mean, look at what the kiss with Ethan did to me and Dixon.
That was a completely different situation.
- No - Yes, it was.
You were confused.
You didn't even know who you liked.
Me, I'm not confused.
I made a mistake.
And so I'm gonna move on - and pretend like it didn't happen.
- It's not gonna work.
You know, it's really none of your business.
So maybe you should just stay out of it.
Okay? Joseph Campbell got the term "monomyth" from Joyce.
He also called it the "Hero's Journey.
" So who are some heroes that have famous monomyths? There's Buddha, there's Moses there's Christ, Luke Skywalker, Ryan Matthews.
I just got this phone.
Have you downloaded the beat app yet? - Give it back.
- Let me show you how to get to it.
Don't touch anything.
Just give it back, man.
I'll take the phone.
No, it's all right.
I'll just put it away.
You just give it to me.
You get it back at the end of class.
Come on, man, that's not fair.
Write about it.
Your own personal monomyth.
Naomi, why are you wearing sweat pants? - Are you okay? - Yeah.
Well, since I'm not going to CU, I'll probably end up working at a fast food joint so I might as well dress the part.
Right? Now, look, I know that you're mad at me, but we have a much bigger problem.
Oh, my God, Naomi's wearing sweats? - Yeah.
- What? I don't know.
So can I have my You know, I wanted to talk to you about your paper.
What's the problem with it? Well, there is no problem.
It's great.
In fact the LA Times is sponsoring a high school essay contest and I really think you should enter.
Look, I made some suggestion for revision Do I have to enter? No, you don't have to.
Cool, then I'll pass.
Can I just have my phone? I don't get you, Liam.
You're a smart kid.
What is it not cool to care? Find another special project because it's not gonna be me.
Just give me back my phone.
"Give me back my phone?" Sorry, give me back my phone, please.
Absolutely, at the end of the day.
What? Looks like I found something you care about.
You sure you don't wanna even up the teams? - You three against me? - Wanna break, Dixon? I just can't believe it's over between me and Sasha.
Yeah, I'll just break.
- You know what's gonna help? - Death.
That or this super hot chick from my history class.
She might not be a cool DJ with an unbelievable amount of sports knowledge, but she does have some really nice curves.
Honestly, guys, I just can't accept that that's the last time I'm gonna see her.
And I know Sasha's going through it too.
I know she's torn up.
She told me she was starting to fall for me.
Really? If she said that you still got a chance.
- Yeah? - No, he doesn't.
Sorry, but you don't.
Sure, he does.
It's like me and Naomi.
Oh, right, like that mysterious plan that you haven't implemented yet.
Technical difficulties.
Point is if you like someone and they like you there's a way around obstacles.
Yeah, like if Dixon went into a rapid aging machine.
Dude, what's your problem? I don't want you to get your hopes up.
All right? - She's told you she's done.
- So why not give it another shot? - I mean what's he got to lose, right? - Yeah.
I mean, what do I have to lose? Did you guys just drive me here for lunch to torture me? I should be getting used to double beef burgers and the fryolater.
We are not torturing you.
We are inspiring you.
This is your dream.
I mean, come on, how many times have you done Pilates to CU fight song? Who cares? I'm done with Pilates forever.
Because some jaded college counselor said you wouldn't get in here? Come on, you are not a quitter.
Yeah, when have you ever taken no for an answer? This morning, coffee shop.
They were out of soy.
Well, you should have made them get more because that's who you are.
Remember at Hermes when a saleslady said there were sold out of the Birkin bag you wanted? What'd you do? I called the regional manager, demanded they have the salesgirl fired.
And then what happened? - They tracked down the bag - And? And I bought two, the blue calf-skin, the brown crocodile.
That's right.
Because you are Naomi Clark.
When someone says you can't have something you get them fired, which for the record, I do have a problem with, but you don't so it doesn't matter.
You go after what you want and you don't take no for an answer.
- What the? - Sorry about that.
You have a good arm.
You're right.
You're right.
I'm not gonna let some college counselor who wears an ankle bracelet under her stockings get in my way.
I just have to find a way to get into CU.
And I will.
That's what we wanna hear.
Oh, my God.
I'm wearing sweat pants.
The only thing that would make me happier right now is if you had a refrigerator right by your bed - with a pot roast inside.
- Oh, yeah.
I'm so famished.
But I'm thinking more like fried chicken and waffles.
- Oh, yeah.
- Yeah.
Oh, shoot, I forgot to tell you something.
Say you have Roscoe's in your book bag and all is forgiven.
No, but it is about food.
- It's about dinner actually.
- Yeah? Teddy asked us to double date with him and some chick.
- What? No.
- No? - No, I don't wanna double date.
- Why not? Because I'd rather just be with you alone.
Well, yeah, me too, but he already asked.
Okay, so just say no.
Well, I already told him yes.
He wants to impress a girl.
Come on, he asked me for a favor.
I wanna help him out.
It's one night.
What's the big deal? Okay, fine.
What are you doing? You were supposed to give me back my phone, but you weren't here so So you just started going through my desk? My phone's got important stuff on it.
Stuff that can't get erased.
You just got yourself a week's detention.
All right? Move.
That is so unfair.
I wouldn't have had to go through your desk if you'd You had to? You didn't have to do anything, Liam.
You shouldn't have taken my phone.
Let's make it ten days of detention.
What is this about? Is it because I didn't enter your stupid contest? Excuse me? - Why are you being such an - All right, that's it, man.
I am sick of your attitude problem.
You know your parents told the school to call if we had any problems with you this year.
- Wait, wait, what? - And this qualifies.
So we're all gonna have a little sit down.
No, look, I'll just - I'll take the detention - Yeah, I'm sorry.
- It's too late.
- You don't understand.
- My step-dad is a jerk.
- Everybody's a jerk, right? Your step-dad? Me? Well, I got a thought for you, Liam, maybe we're not the problem, okay? Maybe you're the problem.
Hey, you.
What's going on? What's it look like? I'm studying to get into CU.
That's awesome.
Little known fact, huge corollary between studying and raising your grade.
Who said anything about grades? I did a little research on the dean of admissions.
Her son goes to CU.
He's a SAT tutor.
- So I hired him.
- Cool.
So you're gonna focus on the SATs? Yeah, no, I'm gonna date the dean's son.
Honestly, Silver, try to keep up.
Once we start dating, well, he'll take me home to mom.
Naturally, I'll charm her instantly.
Eventually, dear Richard and I will part amicably, but not before the dean and I have forged a lasting bond.
The type of bond that will guarantee me a place at CU in the fall 2011.
Wow, Naomi, don't you think it's just a little bit easier to, I don't know, study? The key to success is knowing one's strengths.
I am terrible at tests.
But I'm an excellent dater.
Unfortunately, Richard is a bit of a snooze-fest.
His Facebook says he's some super environmentalist.
I have to read these global warming books to make him think we have stuff in common.
Hey, easy on the pours, seriously.
We're in a drought here.
What do you think? Sounds like I care about the environment, right? Please, listen, just hear me out.
And afterwards if you want me to get lost, I'll get lost, forever.
I brought you a pizza because when we met at the pizza parlor we didn't know each other's ages.
All we knew is that we liked each other.
And, yes, when I found out that you were older, I lied, which was a really, really stupid thing to do.
Look, the only reason why I lied is because I couldn't believe that a girl as cool, as down to earth, and as beautiful as you existed.
But you wanna know something? Although I feel terrible about lying, I'm actually glad I did.
Because if I would have told you I was 17, you would have never gone out with me.
So, yes, I lied about my age.
But all the things that we talked about, everything, all the stuff about how I was feeling, how you were feeling, none of that was a lie.
So I'm here because I'm hoping maybe we could start over.
No more lies.
Just you and me and half sausage, half pepperoni.
Get lost.
"Please come to the meeting tonight, I'm speaking.
I really wanna make things right with us, love Mom.
" - Right on the dashboard? - Yeah.
So you gonna go? I have no idea.
You haven't seen Metropolis? That's even more egregious than your lack of experience with Dim Sum.
Hey, don't I get credit for trying chicken feet? Okay? I popped back, like, three of those suckers.
Okay, yeah, yeah, you're right.
Credit gained.
And then it's deducted for your staggering cinematic naiveté And, no, Annie, I'm sorry, but Kansas, it's not an excuse.
You've lived in L.
For, like, a year.
Well, I guess I've been hanging out in the wrong scene.
Yeah, no kidding.
It's gonna blow your mind, Metropolis.
It's huge.
It's all about man vs.
Big influence on the movie I'm making.
- You're making a movie? - Oh, yeah.
Half narrative, half documentary, half really just sick experimental stuff.
Think, like, Matthew Barney meets Michael Moore.
- Cool.
- Yeah.
Actually, there's a band playing tonight, The Script.
Thought I might use them for part of my score.
- Do you wanna come? - Where are they playing? Beach club.
Yeah, I will pass.
Most of the people I hate hang out there.
So What if I guaranteed you wouldn't have to see any of them? Then would you go? - Hi, are you Richard? - Naomi, hi.
I'm sorry I'm late.
They really should repaint the bike lane by the Shrine.
You rode your bike here from Beverly Hills? Just doing what I can do to reduce my carbon footprint.
That's impressive.
- Oh, stop - No, seriously, I mean, I feel like I'm surrounded by people who don't care about the Earth.
You know, they just guzzle water from plastic water bottles - How do they sleep at night? - No idea.
You know I wish, we could put pictures of choking dolphins on the bottles.
- They'd think twice about using them.
- Yeah.
Choking dolphins would be awesome.
Oh, hey, before we get started with vocab, do you know where the independent theater is around here? I heard there's a showing of Flow and I wanna see if I can catch it later tonight.
- Flow as in For Love of Water? - Yeah.
I tried catching the rerelease last night, but they were sold out.
Rumor has it that you'll never view water politics the same way.
Well, hey, you should come.
I mean, I have another ticket.
Well, you know, I'm your tutor.
I'm not sure that's appropriate.
Come on, it's not a date.
It's just two like-minded individuals going to see a film about something they're passionate about.
Plus I hear it's kind of one of those flicks you gotta see on the big screen.
Kind of like The Dark Knight.
You're tempting me.
Yeah, you know, what the hell? It's just one movie.
- Sorry, we're late.
- Hey, no worries.
- How are you, buddy? - Good.
How you doing? Hi.
- What, no hug? - Oh, of course.
Guys, this is Jasmine.
- Jasmine, this is - Hey, I'm Adrianna.
- Hi.
- And Navid.
Have a seat.
- Jas just moved to L.
From Kauai.
- Oh, no kidding? Sweet.
Ade, you went there once, right, with your mom? - Yeah, a long time ago.
- Yeah, I remember.
When she came back she would not take off her lei.
I am telling you this thing was not only wilting, but it was actually starting to stink.
You know, my family actually vacations in Kauai every Christmas.
- Right on.
Whereabouts? - North Shore.
- It's one of the most beautiful - I'm starving.
- Shall we look at the menu? - Yeah.
Hey, honey, do you wanna order two dishes and split? Yeah, sounds good.
Can I get you guys something to drink? Yeah, I think I'll have an iced tea.
No, make that an Arnold Palmer.
I'm good with water.
- I think we're all good for water.
- Great.
- Oh, babe - Oh, my God.
I got it.
I got it.
Don't worry about it.
I'm so sorry.
I am very impressed, Liam.
It only took a month for us to get called into school.
You held it together longer than I thought you would.
- Honey - Sweetheart, I know this is tough for you, but we had an agreement.
- If he screwed up one more time - I know.
L Sweetheart, we gave him a shot.
We let him move back into the house, but obviously it's not working.
Some kids are just bad seeds, you know.
Liam is one of those.
Jeffrey Sarkossian.
This is my wife Colleen.
- Hi.
- Ryan Matthews.
Nice to meet you.
Look, I wanted to apologize ahead of time for whatever trouble Liam got himself into.
- Trouble? - Yeah.
Liam hasn't gotten into any trouble.
Listen, the reason I called you both down here was to tell you in person how great Liam's been doing.
His first paper was terrific.
It was insightful, well structured, beautifully written.
You should be very proud of him.
Okay, everyone, welcome.
My name's Tim and I'm an alcoholic.
Hi, Tim.
Sorry, I'm late.
So, what you did, that was cool.
Ten days detention still stand.
Yeah, okay.
Your phone.
Hey, that essay contest thing did I miss the deadline? No.
Three days left.
Oh, yeah, so I hiked the waterfall.
Of course I thought it was three miles instead of nine and I ran out of water and vomited.
I gotta go to the ladies room.
I'll be right back.
Okay, sure, babe.
Do you wanna try any - What's wrong with you? - What are you talking about? You know exactly what I'm talking about.
Why would you ask Navid and I on a double date? - Just thought it'd be fun.
- Yeah, right.
And you had to make out with Jasmine right in front of me.
Really? I'm sorry.
Did that bother you? It's interesting, - you know what bothered me? - What? Having to listen to Navid brag about having sex with you - right after we kissed.
- Oh, so this is about getting revenge? Look, what do you care who I make out with? You've got a boyfriend, remember? I know I have a boyfriend, I don't need you to remind me.
- Why you acting jealous? - I'm not jealous.
It's just really annoying because I know that you're trying to make me jealous.
So what if I am? - It's obviously working.
- It's not working.
It's pathetic.
Okay, you know what? I really could care less.
Kiss whoever you want.
- Okay, fine.
- Fine.
You shouldn't have done that.
I'm sorry you're not feeling good.
Still want me to come over? No, I just need to sleep.
- You sure everything's okay? - Everything's fine.
Am I not allowed to have a headache? Yeah, of course.
You look like you're lost.
Yeah, I'm looking for Reed Tower.
I'm going that way.
Come on.
Thank you.
- I'm Jamie by the way.
- Naomi.
- I take it you don't go here, huh? - No, I'm going to apply.
Yeah? You should.
It's the best.
And you are a Pi Phi waiting to happen.
So you're psychic, huh? Psychic, SAE pledge.
Same thing.
- Yeah, we know things.
- Oh, like what? Like I know when I see someone I have to meet.
Why do you think I threw my football at you yesterday? What? What? You thought that was an accident? My arm is pretty damn accurate.
Don't think I would have made it on the football team otherwise.
- So you're on the team? - Yeah.
Would you wanna come to a game sometime? Hey, there you are.
I was afraid you got lost.
Richard, hi.
I was actually just asking for directions.
- Jamie, this is - My roommate Richard.
Hey, man.
So we should get going if we wanna catch the bus.
- So these guys are from Ireland? - Yeah.
Sorry, man, just not really in the best mood.
Hoping that music gets my mind off Sasha.
Yeah, no problem.
- So what do you want to drink? - Whatever.
Oh, no.
- What are you doing here? - Look, I just came for the music.
I had no idea you were gonna be here.
Yeah, well, the musicians are friends of mine, adult friends.
I'm sorry.
Let's go.
You wanna split? Thanks everyone for coming down.
We're The Script from Dublin.
And the song we're gonna do is called "We Cry.
" Let's just stay for the set, you know, and then we'll bounce.
All right.
Together we cry Together we cry Jenny was a poor girl Living in a rich world Named her baby Hope When she was just 14 She was hoping for a better world For this little girl But the apple doesn't fall too far From the tree Told you we could hear the music without seeing anyone you hate.
It's perfect.
What? Nothing.
Nothing, just thank you for this.
And I've let down so many people over the years I've lost count.
But the ones that I regret hurting the most are my children.
I was such a terrible mother, which is why I'm so grateful that one of my daughters is here tonight.
Thank you, honey, for giving me another chance.
I promise you I will not let you down again.
- I'd like to say something if I could.
- Go ahead.
I really wanted to be here tonight so that I could tell my mother once and for all to stay away from me.
Everything that she said, trust me it's gonna last until she's had a bad day.
She's gonna go back to the bottle or the pills, whatever she can get her hands on.
But you did get one thing right, Jackie you were a terrible mother.
The worst of the worst.
And if you think you can buy me back with a car well, that's just proof that you don't know me at all.
Stay away from me.
I mean it.
You're dead to me.
Hey, let's just go, man.
It's hard being in the same room with her.
Yeah, it's cool.
- Actually, give me ten minutes.
- When she get here? I don't know, but I gotta act while I got an opening.
Do your thing, man.
You already talk to her? There's nothing to talk about anymore.
Too late.
She moved on.
Let's get out of here.
Dixon? - Hey.
- Hey.
Where are you going? That kiss was inappropriate for a tutor, huh? I'm sorry.
I know this is not supposed to be a date.
- I'm just having such a good time.
- Yeah? Me, too.
I gotta say you really surprised me.
When I first heard Beverly Hills I thought, "Great, she's gonna be about clothes and hair and make-up" Yeah.
Man, was I wrong.
You're pretty unique, you know? You too.
You must have pretty inspiring parents.
What are they like by the way? My parents? Pretty normal.
My dad's a radiologist and my mom's actually the dean of admissions at CU.
Really? I had no idea.
Naomi will never believe that we slept together.
I really need to talk to you.
I'm sorry for the way I acted.
Call me back, okay? Hello? This is the last time.
Okay? We're just saying goodbye.
Ade, are you okay? Did the Teddy thing? It didn't go away, did it? No.
I mean, yes, you were right, it didn't.
That's not why I'm here.
Silver, we're friends.
Okay? We have to stay in each other's lives.
- I know.
I'm sorry that we fought.
- Your mom called me.
Ade, let it go.
She wanted advice on how to get through.
- She shouldn't have bothered you.
- No, you don't understand.
She told me something you don't know.
Please, there's nothing that that woman could tell you that'll make me change my mind.
Our relationship is over.
She has cancer, Silver.
Your mom is dying.
