”Family Ties: Continued”
Season Eight, Episode Two: Hold Up, Jennifer
[Scene: The Kitchen. The family is getting ready for breakfast]
Mallory: Jennifer… I never did tell you, that you can ask me whatever you want about high school, right?
Jennifer: No, you haven’t. But that’s okay, it’s going along fine.
Mallory: Are you sure?
Jennifer: Yes. Actually… it’s going along really good. Well, lately.
Mallory: Oh? And why is that? Wait… is it a cute guy?!
Jennifer: Yes! For once you’re right!
Mallory: This is so exciting!
Elyse: And his name is…?
Mallory: That’s the cutest name!!
Jennifer: Mallory, calm down. He’s MY boyfriend, not yours.
Steven: Boyfriend? (Steven walks over and sits down by Jennifer)
Jennifer: Yes… boyfriend.
Elyse: When were you going to tell us?
Jennifer: After school…
Mallory: But she can tell me whenever! Whenever, whenever, whenever!!
Steven: (whispering to Elyse) What is wrong with Mallory?
Mallory: Hey, I heard that! Anyways… when can we see him Jen?
Jennifer: After school… Oh yeah, did I mention he’s going to be taking me to school now?
(Jennifer gets up and walks by the door)
Steven: Hold it!
Elyse: He’s driving you to school, and you tell us five minutes before he’s going to?!
Jennifer: It slipped my mind, I was talking to Brad all last night.
Mallory: Yeah, I was on the phone less than her! Aren’t you proud?
Steven: (sarcastically) Oh yes, Mallory!
Jennifer: Oh, he’s here, I have to get going. I’ll see you guys after school!
Elyse: Jennifer wait your backpack is…
(Jennifer walks out, and a packet of papers falls out of her backpack)
Steven: Well… aren’t you going to pick it up?
(Elyse walks over and picks it up)
Mallory: What is it, mom?
Elyse: It’s… someone else’s homework…
[Scene: The Living Room. Elyse is sitting on the sofa reading, when the door opens…]
Jennifer: Hey, mom.
Elyse: Hi Jennifer… can you come over here?
Jennifer: (nervously) Umm, sure.
Elyse: Sit down, and let’s rap.
Jennifer: Rap what?
Elyse: Rap… chat… I keep forgetting there’s a difference.
Jennifer: Ohhh, rap! I remember.
Elyse: Okay, anyways, whose paper is this? (Elyse holds up the packet)
Jennifer: It’s… not mine.
Elyse: I noticed. How did you get it?
Jennifer: Well… I paid for it.
Elyse: You… paid for this?
Elyse: And why did you do that?
Jennifer: Don’t you want to know how much I paid?
Elyse: I don’t care what you paid, I want to know WHY you did this. It’s not like you, Jen!
Jennifer: It’s not like me? Not like… me? So I can’t change?!
Elyse: I’m not saying that, but you are an intelligent girl, why would you do this?
Jennifer: Maybe I’m under stress, or maybe I’m getting lazy!
Elyse: Or… maybe you are spending too much time with your new boyfriend?
Jennifer: No, that’s not it.
Elyse: I think it is, Jen.
Jennifer: Okay, so now I’ll do my homework… my OWN homework…
(Jennifer gets up and tries to walk away)
Elyse: Wait a second! We’re not done here!
Jennifer: (turns around) What is there left to talk… oh wait, I mean… “rap” about?
Elyse: Sit down, Jennifer.
Jennifer: (sarcastically) Ohhh, now you are calling me my full name. Must be serious.
Elyse: Sit down, NOW.
(Jennifer sits down)
Elyse: You are not to talk on the phone for a week, and I won’t be letting you go anywhere for a couple of days, except to school.
Jennifer: What? How is that fair?
Elyse: And since when is cheating fair?
Jennifer: That’s different though!
Elyse: No Jennifer, it’s NOT different. The punishment stands. Now go to your room, and please do your homework.
(Jennifer goes up to her room to do her homework)
[Scene: Jennifer’s Room. Jen is talking on the phone with Brad.]
Jennifer: (on phone) So, what are you doing tonight?
Brad: I don’t know. Probably nothing, unless you are coming.
Jennifer: Well, I could sneak out or something.
Brad: When will you be able to go places again?
Jennifer: A week I think… I’m not even supposed be on the phone.
Mallory: (after picking up the phone from downstairs) Hello?
Mallory: Yes, Jennifer?
Jennifer: Get off the phone!
Mallory: I can listen in if I want. Besides, if you don’t let me, I COULD tell mom you were on the phone…
Mallory: Yes, Jennifer?
Mallory: Yes, Jennifer?
Jennifer: First, quit doing that! Second, get off the phone!
Mallory: I have to use the phone though!
Jennifer: Fine, I’ll get off. Just don’t tell mom!
(Elyse opens the door)
Elyse: Don’t tell mom what?
(Jennifer hangs up the phone)
Jennifer: You were eavesdropping!
Elyse: And, you were on the phone.
Jennifer: Yeah, so?
Elyse: You disobeyed what I just told you earlier! Jen, why are you doing this?
Jennifer: Because he makes me feel like I’m actually important.
Elyse: And we don’t?
Jennifer: Nope. Alex was, but I’m not.
Elyse: Jennifer, everyone is important in different ways. You will make your mark on the world, you just have to wait until the time is right. Don’t give up everything you have now just for a guy, no matter how special he may be.
Jennifer: I guess you are right. Well… you are ALWAYS right.
Elyse: Well, I try my best.
Jennifer: Thanks mom!
(Elyse and Jennifer hug)
