Winona Ryder: Rina
[Lucas quietly joins the kids in the cafeteria, sad over the distance between him and Maggie]
Ben : [Ben shouts out to Lucas] Lucas! We're over here.
Ben : Sit down. We're trying to figure out how to get rid of this jackass band teacher. I hate the idiot's guts.
Tonto : Too bad Treichel had to kill himself.
Ben : Yeah, Why'd he have to kill himself and leave us with this jackass.
Tonto : Sex-crazed, that's why.
Rena : He wasn't sex-crazed, he was in love.
Tonto : With a dental technician?
Rena : Not everybody has to be glamorous to have someone fall in love with them.
Tonto : You don't kill yourself over a dental technician.
Rena : You ever hear of Romeo and Juliet?
Tonto : Was she a dental technician?
Rena : No, but people do kill themselves when they can't have who they love.
Ben : I thought he had a heart attack.
Tonto : No heart attack, my man. He blew his brains out with a book of poetry open and a rose in the page.
Rena : I think it's kind of beautiful, the poetry, I mean. It was probably Keats or Shelley.
[Lucas sits quietly watching the football players at the other table]
[Lucas sits outside of the school dance when Rena joins him at his side]
Rena : Lucas, is that you? What are you doing?
Lucas : Nothing much.
Rena : You look nice.
Lucas : Thank you.
[Rena sits next to Lucas]
Rena : Drinking beer?
Lucas : Dragonfly Nymph. You ever see one?
[Lucas holds up a beer bottle with a bug inside]
Rena : Oh, it's ugly. Glad it's not bigger than me.
Lucas : It turns into something very beautiful, Rena.
Rena : Is that possible?
Lucas : Yeah, can you imagine that? Turning from something ugly into something beautiful.
Rena : No. Frankly, I can't.
Rena : You going to bring it to Carlson?
[Lucas then throws the bottle as it splashes in the water]
Rena : I thought you had a date.
Lucas : Nah.
Rena : Well, are you going in?
[Lucas nods no]
Rena : Why not?
Lucas : Thinking.
Rena : About what?
Lucas : Romeo and Juliet.
Rena : Really? How come?
Lucas : How old were they? Do you know?
Rena : She was 13, and I guess he was about the same. Why?
Lucas : Two different worlds, huh?
Rena : Romeo and Juliet? Yeah.
Lucas : That can be a problem.
