At the ski resort:
Luke and Ben are sitting down over lunch.
LUKE: I was so surprised to run into you yesterday out of the blue and it turns out you were one of the people on my list to interview.
BEN: I am glad you did and that I will get a part in your newspaper.
LUKE: Well lets start this off then. Tell me about how you got into Skiing?
BEN: It actually didn’t happen until I was an adult and I found this hobby. It made me feel alive again.
LUKE: Are you from around here?
BEN: No, but I made some trips here when I was younger, but back then I was too afraid to ski.
LUKE: How did you get over that fear?
BEN: Life has a way of pushing a person around until they become fearless. I just had to break out of my shell and believe me, I have broken out of it.
LUKE: Does skiing give you a rush?
BEN: Oh of course. Very few things can give me a rush like that but everything that does makes me feel alive.
LUKE: Off the record…you already sound like an amazing person.
At the Union Creek High School:
It is lunch time.
Sam and Zack are in the lunch line next to Camella .
SAM: This is a great time in sports. Basketball playoffs. Hockey playoffs and Baseball is in the beginning of the season.
ZACK: Who is going to win the NBA championship?
SAM: The cavs probably.
ZACK: I hope not! Anyone but them.
SAM: Nah, Lebron has this again.
CAMELLA: (Rolls her eyes) Boys always bonding over sports.
Sam and Zack get their food.
Zack goes and sits at an empty table. Sam looks over at Trinity and Camellas table and seems to want to sit there but he sits with Zack.
SAM: We should go sit with Trinity and her friend again.
ZACK: Ehhh, I don’t know. I really don’t think they like us very much.
SAM: I don’t think that’s true at all.
ZACK: It seems like they don’t.
Cut to Trinity and Camella at their table.
Trinity is looking towards Sam and Zack.
CAMELLA: You are sure staring. Like what you see?
TRINITY: Can’t a girl just stare now days?
CAMELLA: Well I am glad they didn’t sit here. They are basic.
TRINITY: I kinda wish they did sit here…
Trinity stares over at them again and Camella shakes her head.
CAMELLA: Shake it off Trin.
TRINITY: Yeah, let me do that right quick.
Reva and Josh are visiting
Jack at the hospital.
JOSH: Hello, man
REVA: Hi…you don’t remember us do you?
JACK: Oh god. You are not someone from my past are you? Because I don’t think I know you. You are not like my parents or something...
JOSH: What?! (chuckles) no.
REVA: We are not that old and you are no spring chicken!
JACK: Well I am relieved.
JOSH: We found you outside of a local coffee shop.
REVA: Yeah, got 911 over to you.
JACK: Well I certainly appreciate that. I was in bad shape when I…well when I got out of the predicament I was in.
Morris walks in.
JOSH: I hope it is okay we came to visit, Jack here.
MORRIS: It is. Just know he has still no memory of his life at all other than recent months.
JACK: Yup folks. It is like nothing is between my ears.
Josh and Reva are surprised.
At the ski resort:
LUKE: (whispers) now for the not so fun part of this interview.
He clicks the recorder on his phone back on.
LUKE: So what brings you to this resort most of the time?
BEN: This is such a fabulous ski resort. The staff is great and there are amazing places to eat, but most importantly some of the best mountains in Colorado.
LUKE: How many times do you choose to ski at this place over others?
BEN: Most of the time really. I would say like eighty percent of the time even.
LUKE: Wow. You must enjoy it immensely?
BEN: Yes if you are looking for the best place to ski from beginners to pros, this is the place!
Luke stops his recorder.
LUKE: Wow, you can sell Ben! If you ever need to go into the car business, you can.
BEN: Its all the charisma.
LUKE: You have that.
BEN: Thanks Luke. This interview has been fun.
In the Union Creek High School Lunch room:
Zack has his eyes at the preppy table. He becomes quiet.
SAM: So who you rooting for in the NHL playoffs?
SAM: Yeah not so many rootable teams are left.
Sam sees Zacks mood has changed.
Over at the preppy table his crush, Anne is laughing it up with Cory Sutter.
SAM: Don’t let this chick get you down.
ZACK: I know I shouldn’t.
Cut to Anne and Cory
ANNE: I never knew you were so funny.
CORY: I guess you have to get to know me more then.
ANNE: You might be right.
Cut back to Zack who is glaring at their table…
Jacks hospital room
Reva takes Morris out into the hall.
Josh stays inside with Jack
JOSH: So you really do not remember anything about yourself?
JACK: I remember the terrible circumstance I have been in recently.
JOSH: Yeah I heard about it, but lets not bring those bad memories up.
JACK: Why not? It’s literally all I have. (chuckles)
JOSH: Least you are carrying a sense of humor too.
JACK: I don’t know what else to do. I can tell you that this is one surreal predicament I am in. It is like I know I have a life out there and yet here I am stripped of absolutely everything. I am a walking, talking empty bottle sailing in an ocean of the unknown.
JOSH: I hope life turns around for you.
JACK: I do too. I’ll have to do something regardless.
JOSH: You are bound to find the right path. I believe that after every storm there is some still water.
Outside in the hall:
REVA: I feel bad for this Jack man.
MORRIS: Believe me, I do too. This is the first case of amnesia I have ever diagnosed. He is here lost from whatever life he had. Whatever family he had and he cannot stay in this hospital forever. In fact I will have to release him soon even though he has nowhere to go.
REVA: He cant just be some transient.
MORRIS: There is nowhere in this town equipped for someone like him other than a homeless shelter.
REVA: I am certain he has a home.
MORRIS: The problem is he does not know where his home could be. No idea whatsoever. He is actually homeless.
BEN: So what newspaper do you work for again?
LUKE: The union creek chronicle.
BEN: No way!
LUKE: Yes way.
BEN: I just moved to Union Creek from northern Colorado!
LUKE: Wow. (big smile) That means we can stay in touch.
BEN: We will definitely have to stay in touch.
LUKE: I was so not looking forward to this trip but I am happy I did.
BEN: So happy, you devoured your meal. You have some crumbs on you.
Ben gets up and wipes some crumbs off of Lukes chest.
LUKE: How embarrassing.
Ben and Lukes faces come close together.
BEN: Don’t be embarrassed.
Ben stares Luke in the eyes for a moment before sitting back down.
Luke nervously swallows.
BEN: I do have to get going though and actually hit the slopes.
LUKE: I…I hope you have fun.
BEN: It has already been one fun morning. So I will continue that trend. Ill catch you around Union Creek.
LUKE: Plan on it.
Ben walks off.
LUKE: I have not been hit on like that in a long time. It sure feels good. Noah Mayer eat your heart out.
School lunch room:
SAM: I don’t know Zack, I think you better start making some moves on Anne.
ZACK: Apparently I better do that very soon.
SAM: I think she would like a strong come on.
SAM: She seems like the type.
ZACK: What’s that suppose to mean?
SAM: Hey, hey. Don’t get over protective of her already!
The bell rings.
ZACK: Crap, time for the next class so soon.
SAM: That felt like a long lunch to me.
Trinity walks by and Sam stops her.
SAM: Hey Trinity, since we have the next class together I’ll walk with you.
TRINITY: I’d like that (smiles)
Camella side eyes them.
SAM: I hate math.
TRINITY: Oh my god you don’t even know. It is my worst subject by far.
SAM: Good thing we’re neighbors. Maybe we can help each other out.
The two happily walk down the hall
Josh comes out of Jacks room.
JOSH: That unfortunate man.
REVA: Isn't it sad Joshua.
JOSH: Yeah. I do feel bad.
REVA: Me too. You know he is about to be released any day now with nowhere to go.
JOSH: There is bound to be someone in town that will help him.
REVA: Yeah I think I know someone.
JOSH: Great! Who…oh…I think I see where you are going with this. I don’t know Reva, I feel uncomfortable with some stranger living with us.
REVA: I think it would be perfect. Jack can come and live on the ranch with us while he gets back on his feet!
Josh looks on uncertain
