Quotes

I just got back from Tennessee, where, against all odds, I picked up two Thursday Next novels for ten bucks. Very cool.

In other news, I dug out my fiction journal from two years ago. Quotes will follow.

Let's start the party with a scene about math =)

INT. Day. The Lit room. ERIN, RAX, and MATT are sitting around by ANDREW's desk, with TRACY to one side. ERIN is wearing a shirt that says "Ridgely Middle School." RAX notices.

RAX
Why are you wearing a Ridgely shirt? That was a horrible place.

ERIN
Yeah, but it's a nice shirt.

RAX
That's true.

--But it was a horrible place! You should write 'I hated' above it.

MATT
Erin's incapable of hate.

ERIN
I learned algebra at Ridgely. And French.

RAX
Yeah, well . . . you're crazy!

TRACY
I started algebra and French at Ridgely.

RAX (to ERIN, ignoring TRACY)
You started calculus at Ridgely too, didn't you? I remember you were carrying around a calculus book in art class . . .

ERIN
Geometry.

RAX
It looked like calculus. It had letters on it.

MATT
Uh, Rax?

(He points to the novel on ANDREW's desk, which, sure enough, has letters on it.)

RAX
No . . . math letters. Strange . . . Greek letters . . .

ERIN
Delta. Pi.

RAX
I like pie.

ERIN
And theta . . .

RAX
You know, I could really go for some apple pie right now.

MATT
Ah, but pi goes on forever.

RAX
That's what you think. Then you go to check the fridge and it's all gone.
