(Caroline is telling her best friend, Kaylee, about her recent break-up with her boyfriend, Dylan)
(Caroline sits down on her bed) I can't believe it, I just can't believe it. I refuse to believe that Dylan broke up with me! Maybe, meaybe if I call him, he'll say he's sorry. (Kaylee tells Caroline to forget about Dylan) Are you kidding me? I just can't forget about him! He was my first real boyfriend! We dated for over a year! A year, three months and 2 days to be exact. He was my frist major crush, my first kiss, my first date, my first everything. I'd pictured myself marrying him. The gown, the church, you as my maid of homor, everything. I even went as far as picturing what our kids would look like and the cute little house we'd live in. (Reflects, then gets angry) Why'd he leave me, why would he want to leave me? I mean, I'm smart, I'm funny, I'm pretty and easy-going. What more could he want? Maybe I said something wrong or didn't laugh at one of his jokes. Maybe he thought I liked someone else. He saw me talking to Bryce the other day, so maybe he thought I liked him. (beat) Oh, no. What if liked someon else? He's talking to Kate a lot lately. Do you think he likes her? (Crying) Aww, Kaylee, what if a guy never likes me ever again? What if I'm single for the rest of my life and end up like one of those crazy cat ladies that you see in all of the movies? Kaylee, I just want my boyfriend back. I just want Dylan back.
(Kayla is sitting at dinner with her parents, and is about to tell them that she is pregnant)
Mom, dad, we need to talk. You always said that I could come to you guys whenever, for whatever. And, I got into some trouble. (beat, they're listening). Mom, remember when I was little, you always said you'd love me no matter what. No matter what I did, or said, you'd always love me, right? And dad, remember, you said that too...and you said that I'd always be your little girl, your baby girl. (beat, she tries to find the words, begins to tear up) What I'm trying to say, is well, I mean, mom, dad, I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm pregnant. (beat, her parents are furious, begins to cry) Daddy, daddy, please don't yell at me. I'm sorry, I'm so so sorry. I didn't mean for this to happen, I didn't want for this to happen. Nate and I were safe and everything, we were, we really were, every time! (beat) Mom, mommy, look at me, please look at me, please tell me that you don't hate me. (beat) Well, I think we know how this happened. Wait, I'm sorry. (beat) Yes, mom, I know, I know what this means. No, he's not gonna leave, Nate's telling his parents right now, too. I know everything's gonna change, even though I don't want it too, and everything gonna get hard. But mom, I can't change it now. I made a mistake, a terrible mistake, that's gonna affect me, us, for the rest of our lives, and I know I have to realize that. (beat) Dad, please don't cry, I've never seen you cry before. (beat) I'm so scared, I really am, I never, ever expected this to happen. I mean, I knew it could, I just didn't think it would happen to me! (beat) Mom, daddy, you still love me, right?
