[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy in the alley]

Chris Redd: That was a fun basketball game.

Mikey Day: Yeah! So awesome. So, what do we do now?

Tommy: Hey, you guys wanna get high?

Chris Redd: You mean, smoke marijuana?

Tommy: Nope, even better. It’s called crack cocaine.

Mikey Day: Awesome!

Chris Redd: I’ll try some.

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Grieg: Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! You’re wrong little dudes. I know you kids ain’t thinking about doing cocaine.

Darnell: Yeah, man! That stuff is wiggady-whack!

[Cut to everybody]

Tommy: Whoa! Who are you guys?

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Both: The sober brothers!

Darnell: In full effect!

Grieg: And when we were your age we used to do cocaine.

Darnell: Word up!

Grieg: You kids don’t want to get mixed up with that junk.

Darnell: Yeah, man! ‘Cos it’s crazy dangerous and it’s expensive.

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Tommy: Yeah, but this is crack cocaine. It’s new and really cheap.

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Grieg: But it’s still bad for you kids.

Darnell: How cheap?

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Tommy: I don’t know. Pretty cheap, like, um, five bucks a rock.

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Darnell: Wow, man! That’s pretty damn cheap. It’s probably weak though, right?

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Tommy: It’s actually way stronger than regular cocaine.

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Darnell: Oh, snap! That’s impossible, right Grieg?

Grieg: Ay, it doesn’t matter. You kids still shouldn’t mess with that crap.

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Chris Redd: But everybody’s doing it.

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Darnell: And where they at?

Grieg: Ay, but check this out. You don’t want to be a follower.

Darnell: What? In a park way over there with that long line?

Grieg: If everybody jumped off a bridge, would you?

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Chris Redd: I guess not.

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Grieg: And that’s why you shouldn’t do crack.

Darnell: Look at that. The cops are just letting it happen too.

Grieg: Ay, come on, man!

Darnell: Oh, right! Sorry. Besides, kids, cocaine will ruin your nose just like it did mine.

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Tommy: But it doesn’t go in your nose. You smoke it with a pipe.

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Darnell: And what does it taste like?

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Tommy: Actually it tastes pretty gross.

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Grieg: Exactly! It’s gross because it’s bad for you.

Darnell: How gross is it though? I mean, like, does it taste like bugs? Because, I’ve eaten bugs.

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Tommy: Whatever old man. I’m gonna smoke crack. Who’s with me?

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Darnell: Me!

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Mikey Day: I don’t know, Tommy. Maybe these guys are right.

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Darnell: But, maybe we wrong.

Grieg: Darnell! What are you doing man?

Darnell: Man, are you hearing this? This is everything we dreamed of, man! We can get higher, faster for cheaper. And you just want to walk away?

Grieg: But we don’t do that anymore.

Darnell: Because it costs too much. And now, it doesn’t.

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Tommy: Fine, I’m going to go throw this crack in the trash.

Mikey Day: Yeah!

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Grieg: That’s good thinking little man.

Darnell: Yeah, which can?

[Cut to Chris Redd, Mikey Day and Tommy]

Tommy: Thank you sober brothers.

Chris Redd: You saved our lives.

[Cut to Grieg and Darnell]

Grieg: No need to thank us.

Darnell: Yeah, man! Just tell us which can you’re going to throw the crack in.

Grieg: And always remember, [Cut to everybody] when it comes to doing drugs–

Everybody: Just say, “No!”

Darnell: Let me toss it away for you.
