POP ROCKS AND JOLT COLA
Scene for 5 actors (3 male 2 female)
(A group of students are in school detention. The teacher has left the room. BENDER immediately gets out of his chair and starts wandering the room. He stops at PENNY)

SETTING: High School Detention
BENDER: So, it's bad Penny... always turning up. Why you in here drama queen?
PENNY: I did nothing. I'm innocent.
BENDER: I heard you did something pretty bad. You stole something from the principal. You broke in his office and took something. What was it?
(Other students turn and listen)
PENNY: The crown jewels. Or the Hope Diamond. I can't remember which. I steal so much I lose track.
BENDER: I'm starting to like you drama queen.
PENNY: Too bad.
BENDER: What was it, Penny? Come on.
PENNY: It was helping out a friend. Now, drop it, okay?
BIFF: Leave her alone, Bender.
(BENDER goes to BIFF)
BENDER: If it isn't our head cheerleader? Here to cheer us up in detention? I always thought it was a little weird a guy wanted to be a cheerleader. I mean, maybe a mascot, so you can hide your face... although our mascot is the woodchuck, so that can't be too cool. Why you in here cheerboy?
BIFF: I beat up somebody... punched his face in... Got tired of him saying certain thing about me that wasn't true.
BENDER: I bet I know what he was saying, Cheerboy. We all think it, but he was the only one stupid enough to say it.
BIFF: Well, I'm not.
(BIFF slams down his fist on a desk or table. BENDER backs
off. He makes his way over to HARM. He tries to touch HARM
and she hits his hand away. JIMMY gets worried)
BENDER: What's the matter? You don't want to be my girlfriend anymore?
HARM: I never was, loser.
BENDER: That hurts. I thought we had something.
(BENDER is about to touch her again)
HARM: Touch me again and die.
BENDER: Just one little kiss?
(JIMMY grabs BENDER)
JIMMY: Leave her alone.
(BENDER turns slowly and towers over JIMMY)
BENDER: You say something?
JIMMY: Yeah... leave her... alone.
BENDER: Make me.
(JIMMY gives BENDER a shove. BENDER laughs and goes to
attack JIMMY. JIMMY ducks and BENDER is grabbed by
BIFF. BIFF, HARM and JIMMY all grab BENDER and shove him in
a closet [can be off stage])
BENDER (CONT.): Hey, hey... what are you doing?
(They all return happily to their desks)
BENDER (CONT.): Let me out of here.
BIFF: Nice one, Jimmy.
(HARM gives a little smile at JIMMY who is very happy she
noticed. PENNY pulls some stuff out of her backpack)
PENNY: Anyone like JOLT cola?
BIFF: Oh, yeah. That stuff makes me bounce off the walls.
PENNY: I like to add pop rocks to it.
(PENNY opens a can and pours some pop rocks in)
HARM: I heard that one kid, Mikey, in the Life cereal ads died from doing that.
(BIFF drinks it)
BIFF (CONT.): Oh, yeah! Narley!
(JIMMY goes over and tries it)
JIMMY: Ha! This is too much. That feels so weird!
(PENNY takes one over to HARM)
PENNY: Want one?
(HARM shrugs. PENNY gives her one. HARM tries it and slaps
PENNY (CONT.): Oh yeah... it comes out your nose sometimes.
(PENNY tries to hold in a laugh but BIFF and JIMMY can't
help but laugh)
BENDER (OFF): What about me? I want one.
(JIMMY gets an unopened can and shakes it. They
laugh. JIMMY goes and tosses it quickly in the closet)
