Jordan and Brandon


Brandon: What are you so worried about?

Jordan: (twirls a basketball in his hands) Marissa’s going to be in the stands tonight.

Brandon: Yeah, and?

Jordan: She already thinks I’m a clumsy idiot. What’ll happen if I trip over my own feet?

Brandon: You’re not going to …

Jordan looks at him and squints.

Brandon: Okay, so you might. But some girls like the underdog.

Jordan: (laughs wryly) Yeah, name one.

Brandon: (laughs) Your mom.

Jordan: Hey, my dad got a slam-dunk in the finals at school.

Brandon: And he broke his ankle when he landed.

Jordan: (nods) I wonder if Marissa’ll sign my cast…

Brandon: Don’t!

Jordan: (eyes his friend with a grin) Don’t think she’s worth it?

Brandon: (shakes his head) You’re a fuckin’ nutcase.
