Zach… Marcello Hernandez
Casey… Jenna Ortega
Zach: [to his boys] Hey, I’ll catch up you guys later, okay?
Hey, Casey. What are you doing here?
Casey: I know you and the guys usually hang out at Waffle House after the game. So I just figured you’d be here. I have something I need to tell you.
Zach: What’s up?
Casey: I’m not going to stay next year.[the people inside the Waffle House are fighting]
Zach: What? We had a plan. We were both gonna go to state, and then move back to town after and get married. That’s what we wanted.
Casey: No, that’s what you wanted, Zach. Right? I want more. More than this state. More than this town.
Zach: More than me?
Zach: I don’t understand. What did I do wrong?
Casey: Nothing. I applied to this music program in New York City. I got in.
Ego: [inside the Waffle house] Oh my god, whose dog is this?
Casey: Aren’t you gonna say anything?
Ego: [inside the Waffle house] Get your dog out of here.
Zach: I mean, what do you want to say Casey? Congrats? I’m losing the love of my life.
Casey: I’m just the love of your life so far.
Ego: [inside the Waffle house] Oh, the dog can’t be on the counter?
Casey: Okay? You’ll find other girls.
Zach: They won’t be you. I just- I can’t believe it’s over. We’ve been together since eighth grade.
Casey: I know. That’s the problem. I don’t know who I am without you. I owe it to myself to find that out. See, this wasn’t an easy decision.
Zach: You’re making a mistake, Casey.[a police walks in the waffle house]
Casey: Maybe I am making a mistake, you know? But isn’t that what grown up is? About taking the big chances? Making the big mistakes. That’s just how we become who we’re meant to be.[the police tasers Mikey in the waffle house]
Zach: If you say so.
Mikey in waffle house: You know where I’m putting this? Right down in my pants, baby.
Casey: It hurts with you, Zach. I know that this is the right decision. [gunshot in the background] Who knows? Maybe a few years from now, we’ll find each other again. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be. You’ll always be my first love. Nothing can change that.
Zach: I guess.
Casey: Come here.[Casey and Zach hug each other]
Zach: For what?
Zach: I guess thank you too. Do you need a ride home?
Casey: No. My dad drove me.[Mikey gets thrown out of the window of waffle house]
Mikey: [to Casey] You ready to go, baby girl?
Casey: Yes, dad.
Mikey: Freebird gotta fly, son.
