The "Square"

Scene 3 - Ext. Forest - Night.

Heather and Josh are still tied to their trees.

JOSH

Heather, I'm hungry.

She looks disgusted.

HEATHER

How can you even think like that, Josh? I

mean, here we are surrounded by the most

wonderful things in the world, doing some of

the most honourable work that -

JOSH

You're hungry too, aren't you?

HEATHER

Yeah.

They fall silent for a few moments.

HEATHER

I know! We'll sing a song to pass the time.

JOSH

Do we have to?

Heather begins singing "Puff The Magic Dragon". Josh stares at her, looking terrified. Heather stops singing.

HEATHER

What?

JOSH

Why can't we sing a normal song?

HEATHER

Normal? Did you just say normal? Man!

Maybe Rex is right about you, maybe you're

nothing but a square!

Josh shakes his head and looks away.

JOSH (mutters)

This is the worst date we've ever been on.

Heather's mouth opens.

HEATHER

Hold on! What about the time you brought

me to that fast food place?

JOSH

What was wrong with that?

HEATHER

That joint was totally using meat that was

the product of brutal animal slaughter!

JOSH

Oh, my God... Hippie.

HEATHER

Square.

They fall silent and look away from each other.

JOSH

Heather, I'm still hungry.

They look at each other and they laugh.
