Taylor: well if we have a party, maybe you should invite Alice McCarthy. Maybe that can work.

(during dinner)

Katie: well Alice was doing fine with Oliver. Taylor, let’s talk about Eyo. Maybe you should love him some day. Maybe invite him to dinner.

Taylor: are you crazy?

Elizabeth: your mother is right. You should be loving Eyo because he loves you too. And your ok high school now you gotta start loving a boy.

Taylor: (gasps sadly at Elizabeth)

Elizabeth: (nods her head yes and agrees with Katie)

Taylor: (puts her head almost down and her hand goes on her right cheek)

Anna-Kat: Ooh you love Eyo just like he loves you. (Giggles)

Taylor: ugh Mom

Katie: Anna-Kat does make a good point.

Anna-Kat: (smiles annoyingly at Taylor, giggles at her, waves to her flirty and raises he eye irons at her annoyingly)

Taylor: UGH. (Goes to Anna-Kat) you annoy me one more time about me and Eyo and I will sue you.

Anna-Kat: (looks at Taylor grossly)

Katie: Taylor you can’t sue Anna-Kat. She’s not old enough to make money yet. And you have to learn that things aren’t about you.

Anna-Kat: Ooh you’re gonna be so grounded forever. (Giggles and waves flirty to Taylor)

Taylor: UGH! (Gets her dinner and puts it in Anna-Kat’s hooha)

Anna-Kat: oh my hooha. (Exhales sharply)

Taylor: (throws her plate and sits down at her seat angrily)

Katie: OK. Taylor I know you’re upset but we don’t put our dinner in girls’ hooha. OK?

Taylor: (sighs) ok.

Anna-Kat: (sighs) Taylor listen, when I was having lunch at school yesterday, I dumped my Mac and cheese in Franklin’s scrotum. So I felt pretty bad and he ended the friendship with me and then I apologized and started crying right after I gave him the flowers to him and he hugged me when I was crying.


Anna-Kat: how could you?

Franklin: how could you what?

Anna-Kat: ugh. (Puts the Mac and cheese in Franklin’s scrotum)

Franklin: hey Anna-Kat, that’s not ok. I’m done with you. (Walks away angrily)

Anna-Kat: (feels very sad because of what she did to Franklin and starts crying)

(another flashback)

Anna-Kat: (knocks on Franklin’s door)

Franklin; (answers the door) oh hi Anna-Kat.

Anna-Kat: I’m sorry.

Franklin: and what are you sorry for?

Anna-Kat: for putting Mac and cheese in your scrotum. (Voice breaking) I’m sorry. (Starts crying after he gives the flowers to Franklin)

Franklin: aw Anna-Kat it’s ok. (Both hug and rub each other’s backs during it)

Oliver: (opens and closes the door and takes the sunglasses off) huh, no one’s home. That’s strange.

Both Taylor and Anna-Kat: surprise. Happy Birthday. (Both giggle and touch each other and rub each other’s backs)

Oliver: woah. How did this happen?

Katie: happy birthday my sweetheart. You are awesome. We got a surprise for you. (Everyone especially Oliver’s friends pop up) SURPRISE!

Oliver: wow. Thanks everybody. This is awesome. Taylor, Anna-Kat thanks for the first surprise. All of my friends, thanks for the second one.

Taylor: Anna-Kat, please go away.

Anna-Kat: hmm..nope. I’ll still annoy you. (Giggles)

Taylor: UGH! (Goes downstairs angrily)

Anna-Kat: (feeling very sad)

Taylor: Mom, we want in. Anna-Kat won’t leave us alone.

Katie: (Groans) I will have a word with Anna-Kat. (Walks upstairs) Anna-Kat, front and center. I don’t appreciate that your still annoying Taylor and Eyo. You’re grounded for the rest of the week.

Anna-Kat: but

Katie: no buts. Go.

Anna-Kat: (gets sad and goes upstairs to her room)

Tara: Katie, where is my kid?

Katie: getting him. (Sighs) son of a bitch.

Tara: that is not happening. I don’t want my son com-boarding with your daughter.

Katie: that’s flirting Tara. If you flirt with your husband, that’s a shame on you then because you were the one who lied to him then.

Tara: (sighs and goes to Taylor and Eyo)

Oliver: this is the best party ever. And your the best mom ever.

Anna-Kat: (knocks on Taylor’s door)

Taylor: (goes to her door and answers it)

Anna-Kat: I’m sorry for annoying you and Eyo a couple hours ago.

Taylor: I accept your apology. (Both hug)
