Angela: Love is when you look into someone's eyes, and suddenly, you go all the way inside, to their soul... and you both know, instantly. I always imagined I would fall in love, nursing a blind soldier. Who was wounded in battle. Or maybe while rescuing someone in the middle of a blizzard, seconds before the avalanche hits. I thought, at least, by the age of fifteen, I would have a love life. But, I don't even have a "like" life.

Jordan: Oh, I almost forgot. Here.

[hands letter to Angela]

Jordan: I found it at the museum. You wrote it, right?

Angela: Yeah. But when I wrote this, I wrote it about someone else. This guy. I had a boyfriend last summer, and I wrote everything... I wanted to remember him. I used your name because I didn't want other people to know it was about him. Because he died. He's dead.

Jordan: Look, I didn't read it. Okay? So you don't have to, like, tell that stuff.

Angela: You expect me to believe that?

Jordan: I don't care what you believe.

Angela: Well, you find a five-page letter in a museum and it starts "dear Jordan," and you expect me to believe you didn't read it?

Jordan: Nevermind. Look, I read parts of it. Okay?

Angela: What? You must really think I'm stupid.

Jordan: It just didn't hold my interest, okay?

Angela: Oh really? Why is that? I'm curious!

[stops Jordan]

Angela: I'd really like to know what it was that made it so incredibly boring. Just tell me! Was it too emotional? Too personal? Too many big words?

Jordan: [yells] Shut up! Geez.

Angela: You couldn't read it. That's it, isn't it?

Jordan: I never told anyone before.

Enrique (Rickie) Vasquez: Um... she's a little upset. I guess, well, because of... well, nevermind.

Jordan: [stops Rickie] No, what?

Enrique (Rickie) Vasquez: Um, I guess you know she figures, why didn't you call or something?

Jordan: Yeah, that makes sense. She just... she, like, wanted me to meet her parents. I just, I wasn't in the mood. You know? It's like she knows to much about me, or something. And not really, but she just makes too big a deal out of everything. She makes everything too complicated. Anyway.

Enrique (Rickie) Vasquez: Well, it was partly that song that you wrote. She really liked it. And it was obvious what it was about, so...

Jordan: Yeah... my car.

Jordan: Hey, you want to hear that song I was telling you about?

[singing]

Jordan: I was going nowhere. Going nowhere fast. Drowning in my memory. Living in the past. Everything looked black till I found her. She's all I need and that's what I say, I call her RED She's my shelter from the storm. She's the place to rest my head. Late at night she keeps me warm. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I call her RED.

[stops]

Jordan: That's all I have so far.
