An excerpt …

(It’s just an amusement ride.)

BRADY: Don’t look up, Gale.

GALE: I’m looking up. I’m already looking up. Look, I can do the Tilt-A-Whirl, Brady. I’ll even do the roller coaster if I can close my eyes, but I cannot do this. Look at the name of thing, Brady! “The Plunge of Death!” You know what that means, Brady? The Plunge of Death? It means…the Plunge of Death!

BRADY: It’s an amusement park ride, Gale! Look…we get in that seat, it takes us up then we come back down again.

(since death is imminent, they decide to confess)

GALE: (blurting out the confessions quickly in rapid succession with Brady) I took your milk money in kindergarten!

BRADY: I copied your sixth-grade social studies assignment!

GALE: I purposely left you out of my fifth birthday party!

BRADY: I told your mom when you wore her shorts to school!

GALE: Your dog didn’t tear-up your homework! It was me!

BRADY: I emailed your boyfriend last night!

GALE: (and suddenly the rapid-fire confessions come to a silent halt…Brady’s eyes widen and it’s obvious that Gale has gone one step too far) (finally) Oops. I shouldn’t of said that.

BRADY: You did what?!!!

(the friends have been true to each other, but …)

BRADY: I told him you were my best friend and I would never … We’re going down, Gale! This is the end!  (looks over the edge of the car) Hey, look! Our friends are down there! They’re cheering! We’re saved, Gale! Gale, we’re gonna live!

GALE: I can’t believe that jerk!

BRADY: Oh, once I step off this thing I’m never gonna…Hey, look! The kids on the Tilt-A-Whirl are cheering! There’s…there’s Mike! (waving) Hi, Mike!

GALE: Yeh…Mike and…

BOTH: Amanda! (a long pause as the two girls simply stare in disbelief)
