MANDELLA That's a charming new development Kat doesn't answer, but reaches over and puts a tape in the tape deck. As they pull out, Michael crosses in front of them on his moped. A shelf next to her holds several bodice-ripper romance novels, bearing her name.
I wish I could say he's a moron, but he's number twelve in the class. Mostly regional stuff, but he's rumored to have a big tube sock ad coming out. Cameron watches as Bianca flounces back into the building. SCHOOL PARKING LOT - DAY Kat and Mandella walk toward Kat's car. Mandella ties a silk scarf around her head, as if they're in a convertible. They watch Joey's car as he slows next to Bianca and Chastity as they walk toward the school bus. Bianca and Chastity can't get in Joey's car fast enough. BACK TO KAT AND MANDELLA Mandella lowers her sunglasses to watch.

KAT As always, thank you for your excellent guidance. SOPHOMORE ENGLISH CLASS - DAY Bianca ignores the droning teacher as she writes a note in big flowing handwriting. Bianca folds the note and passes it behind her with a flip of her hair to CHASTITY.
