Miss Desjardin: [the Ewin High School halls. We hear a bell ring, students and teachers walk through the halls, quiet chit-chat. Ms. Desjardin faces Tommy and Sue as she stands across fro them.

Tommy Ross: [the second bell rings] No.
Sue Snell: [Sue grabs Tommy's arm arm and the two begin to walk they don't wanna be late for class] Come on
[They walk right by Ms. Desjardin, she turns to watch them, shes not happy but she can't do anything]

[Carrie is staring out the window in English class, with her powers she is making the flag flap and shake. A small smile grows on her face]
Mr. Ulmann: Alright, who's next? Uh... Carrie?
[Carrie quickly turns to face her teacher]
Mr. Ulmann: Favorite poem did you bring one?
[a couple of kids laugh]
Carrie White: Yeah.
Mr. Ulmann: Why don't you come to the front of the class and share it with us all?
[Carrie gets up, she makes her way down the rows of students who laugh quietly. When she gets to the front of the room, she faces them. Not taking her eyes off her book, she reads]
Carrie White: [quietly and softly over the small laughter] This un- This unfrequented place to find some ease. Ease to the body some, none to the mind. Times past, and wh- What once I was and what am now. Oh wherefore was my birth from Heaven foretold, twice by angel who at last in sight of both my parents, all in flames... Ascended.
[Most kids are amazed and confused at the same time]
Mr. Ulmann: Okay, that was uh- disturbing.
[Kids laugh. Tommy looks up at him angrily. Mr. Ulmann is being a prick]
Mr. Ulmann: This is the most you've said all year. Anything else you wanna add or are you done scaring us for the day?
Tommy Ross: [slips out] Asshole.
[some kids gasp, they all turn to him]
Mr. Ulmann: Excuse me, Mr. Ross, did you say something?

[Carrie makes her way towards her desk]
Mr. Ulmann: [changing the subject] Ok, who's next. Nicki. Ah- I mean Lizzy.
[Carrie sits down. Keeping her head down, she pushes some hair in front of her face. She turns to Tommy. Sue sees her, something clicks in Sue, Sue now knows Carrie likes him]

[the halls are half empty, students pass by and stare. Carrie throws her book bag over her shoulder and she power walks through the hall, she's upset. Tommy is running after her, he is holding her jacket. He runs up to her a taps her arm]
Tommy Ross: Carrie...
Carrie White: [spins around] Stop just- Please just, stop trying to trick me.
Tommy Ross: No I'm not trying to trick you, I'm not tricking you.
Carrie White: Aren't you with Sue Snell?
Tommy Ross: Yeah, I'm with Sue Snell but she doesn't wanna go.
[Carrie gives him a look, he has to be lying. Tommy holds out Carrie's jacket]
Tommy Ross: I'm sorry.
[Carrie quickly grabs the jacket and runs off. Leaving Tommy all alone. She runs through the crowd of students, as she tries to hold back her leaking tears. The bell rings]

Carrie: Why am I here with you?
Tommy Ross: Because I asked you.

Carrie: It's beautiful.
Mr. Fromm: Carrie White! Beautiful. Beautiful. BEAUTIFUL! Oh, beautiful for spacious skies for amber waves of grain. Is that the kind of beautiful you mean? Is it, Carrie? I'm afraid, Carrie, this is hardly a criticism.

Tommy Ross: Don't count your chickens.
Miss Collins: Just don't try!
Tommy Ross: Fine. I won't try.
Sue Snell: Hey, wait a second! It's not fine! You can't order someone not to take someone to the prom.
Miss Collins: Well, you know, I can make sure that you don't hurt Carrie White anymore.
Sue Snell: We're not trying to hurt her, Miss Collins. We're trying to help her!
Miss Collins: How? Hey, Tommy. Um, don't you think you're just gonna look a little ridiculous when you walk in the prom with Carrie White?
Sue Snell: We don't care how we look. Do we?
