HARRY: Officer? CYBIL: I’ve been trying to get through to you. You had your phone turned off? HARRY: No, I just… I guess the reception
was out. CYBIL: Mr. Mason, are you okay? HARRY: Yes, I know where I am. I’m at the high school. CYBIL: Midwich High? In weather like this, the gym is sometimes used as an emergency shelter. I want you to go there. HARRY: Emergency Shelter? Maybe Cheryl was taken there? CYBIL: Yes, go to the gym. Wait there for me. HARRY: I’m going, but if she’s not there I won’t wait. I just can’t. THERAPIST: So we get to the halcyon days of High School. When I was starting out, the popular theory said it was their mom and dad that screwed a person up. But if you really wanna screw someone up. I say send them to high school. I bet you took studying seriously. Nice folders and neat workbooks. Okay, lets move on. I’m going to throw out some words. Nod when they fit how you word school. Shake your head if they don’t. Ready? Jock? Next, slut? Uh, drunk? Aww, virgin? Hmm, bully? And…slacker? Okay, let’s take a different tact. On the table, I’ve laid out a blank timetable and some cards with lessons on them. Pick out the lessons to show me your perfect school day. Don’t leave any empty. There are only four
periods and I’ve allocated a very generous lunch. Done? Nice. If that was all there was to it. It would have been a breeze, wouldn’t it? Come on. Lets talk more about the bad stuff that happened at school. VOICE MESSAGE:MAN: Why can’t you be relax with me, like you should? Is it-it your parents house? You don’t wanna do it there? Theres-theres other places. *sigh* Why do you got to be so frigid? HARRY: Nice. *A woman cries in the background.* VOICEMESSAGE:MAN: Sorry…I hit you. I was just mad at myself. You look so much as my daughter. Put the wig back on and go upstairs. VOICEMESSAGE:MAN: You’ve reached Midwich High
School. With cutting edge technology and a modern learning environment. Midwich is empowering students to lead the
world of the future. Midwich High School is currently closed due to severe weather. Snowy conditions apply. VOICEMESSAGE:MAN: Got all your books? Lunch? Good. How come you changed your hair? Do the other girls tell you to do your hair like that? I thought you looked great with pigtails. Okay hunny, you have a nice day.
