Grace’s concern

Scene shifts to the kitchen.

CAL: I’m fine. I feel good.

GRACE: You do feel good. So, first day at school are you nervous?

CAL: No.

BEN: All right. Your mom’s gonna take you on her way to work.

CAL: I don’t need a ride. I’ll walk with Olive.

GRACE: Backpack and shoes, let’s go.

OLIVE: Guys, it’s six blocks, and it’s the same campus. He can come with me.

GRACE: After everything he’s been through, I just want to make sure he’s gonna be okay.

OLIVE: He’ll be fine. Okay, the last thing he needs is the mommy-drop. First he was the cancer kid. Now he’s the 828 kid. Let him just show up on day one being normal.

BEN: All right, but if you see anything strange or if Cal gets sick again, you’ve got—

OLIVE: I’ll call, and text, and Snapchat. Relax.

BEN: The wisdom of a 16-year-old.

Michaela’s concern

Michaela walks in, and grabs her coat.

MICHAELA: Am I still driving you? Can we get going?

BEN: Good morning to you, too.

MICHAELA: Sorry. It’s just I’m trying to get Jared out of my head, and the captain insists we ride patrol together.

GRACE: Maybe it’s Jared who’s insisting.  I got to get ready. Have fun at work.

BEN: Hey. See you tonight.

Olive’s concern


Scene shifts to outside on the school campus. 

UNIDENTIFIED STUDENT VOICES:  Check it out. It’s that 828 kid. The plane.

OLIVE: Hey. You’re gonna do great.

Olive takes her brothers hand.

MAN AT DOOR: All right, guys, school’s open. There you go. Good morning. Good morning.

The students are let into the building, for the start of a new school day.
