School-Crossed Lovers: The Rest
2. Outside dorm
CALLIE walks out on her balcony. STAN stands to the side.
Stan, Stan, wherefore art thou Stan? Deny thy university and forbid thy name! Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I'll no longer be a Cal student.
What are you doing here? Berkeley is seriously far from Palo Alto, and the place death, considering who you are, if any of my kinsmen find you here.
With love's light wings did I o'er-perch these walls! And my mom let me bring my car to college.
You found parking?
O, speak again, bright angel! for thou art as glorious to this night, being o'er my head as is a winged messenger of heaven unto the white-upturned wondering eyes of mortals that fall back to gaze on him. Angel, will you swipe me Crossroads?
Eating dinner with a Bear won’t retroactively win you Big Game.
But maybe it will win you.
TAYLOR SWIFT’s Love Story plays.
So what’s this new girl like Stan?
She’s really great.
To tree? Or not to tree?
She doth teach the torches to burn bright.
LIZZ AND MAYA
Oh my god, she’s in love
Who is it?
Is it that newman Doug Wade?
Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear.
No. He’s, he’s not in band.
LIZZ AND MAYA
Not in band?!
And she has really great legs.
You should invite him to one of the basketball games!
You can take her to the Cal game this weekend.
CALLIE and STAN look at each other, worried.
“Love Story” transitions into “Tonight” from Westside Story.
Tonight, the highly anticipated basketball matchup between Cal and Stanford. This is the first time the Bears and the color have faced each other in a big name sport since the infamous play last fall. Tip-off at 7.
(On phone, sung)
The minutes seem like hours. The hours go so slowly. I know this must be right.
I’m so excited to see you tonight.
I’m excited to see you too.
(hanging up, singing)
Tonight, tonight, I’ll see my love tonight, I hope nobody sees who we are…
4. The Game
Cal fans stand on two sides, yelling “Go Bears”. Stanford yells, “Let’s go Stanford.” A few Stanford bandsmen play something indiscernible while Cal Band plays Fight.
STAN motions to CALLIE. She looks around, then follows.
STAN taps CALLIE’s hat.
This is adorable.
Some of CALLIE’S friends enter.
What did he do to you?
I have a word to say to you!
And but one word? Couple it with something; make it a word and a blow.
Separate Ways plays. Epic fight scene. It involves trombone slides. It’s pretty awesome.
O serpent heart, hid with a flowering face! Dove-feather'd raven! wolvish-ravening lamb! You jerk!
I can’t do this Stan. I really can’t.
I never want to see you again.
Music: Romeo and Juliet by Mancini. He watches her leave forlornly.
5. Second Montage
CALLIE leaves the game. STAN tries to follow her. She shakes him away.
STAN tries to make a call. It rings and rings. She doesn’t pick up.
CALLIE looks at her phone. She reaches for it, then walks away.
STAN enters, awkwardly wearing a Cal sweatshirt.
What are you doing here? I told you I—
What devil are you, that do torment—
Love Story starts.
(Grr I wish I'd gotten a cast/pit picture too...)
And here it is in video form!
