INT. MAXWELL LIVING ROOM - EARLY EVENING
late June, 1971
Kyle, David and Stuart sit uncomfortably on the couch and
arm chair. They are all wearing tuxedos.
Whoever invented the tuxedo ought
to be shot!
Then put in a wood chipper!
David and Stuart make faces of disgust.
What? I hate this monkey suit! I
wish Judy hadn't decided to get
dressed here. We could have
picked her up in the limo that we
rented. at least I wouldn't have
to sit around waiting for her.
Colleen Maxwell comes down the stairs carrying a camera.
Barry Maxwell meets her at the bottom with another camera.
The girls are ready. David, Emily
is coming down first, and I want
you to wait for her on the bottom
step by the banister. Barry will
take a picture from the couch.
I'll take a picture from another
angle by the door.
Barry and David take their positions
Joanie will come down next, and
you will be waiting for her,
Stuart. Judy will come down last
you will be waiting for her Kyle.
Then we'll have a group shot.
Have you ever considered a career
as a photographer, dear?
Laughing, Colleen gets into position by the door. Emily
appears at the top in a floor length Cream coloured fine
lace dress. It has peach taffeta underlining and small
frills at the empire waist. The long sleeves are all lace.
As Emily comes down the stairs, David stares at her as
though he will never see enough of her. As she reaches him,
He pins a pink rose corsage on her shoulder. Barry and
Colleen take pictures. They move away, and the whole thing
is repeated with Joanie and Stuart.Joanie is wearing a long
floral silk gown.
Do you think Judy has any idea
what is about to happen?
Not a clue. I can't wait!
Judy appears at the top of the stairs in a long mint green
satin gown. Kyle waits at the bottom. As she approaches
him, he falls to one knee and fishes a small velvet box out
of his pocket. He takes her hand and looks up into her eyes.
Judy, I love you more than
anything else in the world. I
want to spend the rest of my life
making you happy. Will you marry
Judy bursts into tears and with an overcome squeal, she
throws herself into Kyle's arms.
Kyle sits her down on the step and puts the beautiful
solitaire diamond ring on her finger. All of the women weep
openly. Kyle discreetly wipes away the tears that run down
his own face. The rest of the men in the room clear their
throats to fight off the emotion of the moment.
I don't know what to say, Im...
overwhelmed. Kyle, I love you so
much. I can't think of anything
better than spending the rest of
my life with you.
Colleen circles the bottom of the stairs, snapping pictures
as she goes. Barry is also taking pictures of the prom
