Part 1 - MISSINGLIZ: How am I going to tell Max? MARIA: My advice...over drinks.
The Chronicles of the Denim jacketů Part 2 - BLOOD BROTHERS LIZ: What is it? MAX: She's out. LIZ: Who is? MAX: Miss Hardy. She's absent. Stomach flu. And since we both have fifth period lunch, we have close to 2 hours off. LIZ: Well, we don't technically have fourth period off just because Miss Hardy's out. MAX: There's something I want to show LIZ: Ok, let's go. (Max and Liz are cruising down a road) LIZ: This is so cool. MAX: It's the old highway. My dad used to take this when we drove to Albuquerque. LIZ: I never even knew this place existed. MAX: I just thought we should do something, you know? Something normal, for once. Things have been so... LIZ: Yeah, I know, insane. LIZ: Oh, my God. I love this song. MAX: Me, too. VOICEOVER: Have you ever had a moment when you're with the one person in the world you want to be with and the wind is blowing through your hair and the song that just describes your entire soul happens to come on, and then the person that you want to be with happens to love the same song and suddenly you realize you're listening to it together? And that no matter how crazy your life has gotten there's this one moment...this perfect moment...where you could just say that no matter what happens, nothing can take this moment away from me... (A horse appears in the road ahead) VOICEOVER: And then, something does. (Max swerves to avoid hitting the horse and the jeep crashes into some bushes on the side of the road. Max's head is resting against the steering wheel and he isn't moving) LIZ: Max? Max? Oh, my God.
Part 3 - BALANCE VOICEOVER: There are days when everything seems wrong, when little things just irk you for no good reason. And then there are days like today when the whole world just sings to you from the minute you open your eyes in the morning, till the minute you shut them again at night, days when you actually enjoy cleaning the milk shake machine. MARIA: God, this day sucks. Table 2 says their bacon's not crisp enough. Isn't anybody ever satisfied? MARIA: Well, if it isn't Prince Charming and Quasimodo. MICHAEL: Hey, do we have to eat here? MAX: I'm, uh, really in the mood for a piece of Men in Black-berry pie. Reminds you of something, don't it? MICHAEL: Compared to nuclear winter, no. MARIA: What are you doing? LIZ: Max likes cherry cola. What does Michael like? MARIA: Cherry cola with arsenic? MICHAEL: Can we please leave? All right? I'll buy you a whole one at the House of Pies. MAX: What's your problem, Michael? I thought maybe you'd want to see Maria. MICHAEL: We kind of broke up. MAX: What? Why didn't you tell me? MICHAEL: Look, I don't...I'm not sure if we did or didn't. I mean, it's confusing. LIZ: Cherry cola. On the house. MARIA: Yours is $1.25. MICHAEL: Guess it's not really confusing anymore, is it? (Michael gets up to leave and as he does so, he spills his glass of cola over the table. In the process, Max and Michael's books drop to the floor. Michael picks up Max's notebook and pulls out a sheet of paper that has hieroglyphic symbols from River Dog's cave drawn on it.) MICHAEL: What's this? MAX: Put that away. MICHAEL: Now, I know this. This is from... MAX: Not here, Michael. MICHAEL: What are you hiding from me, Max?
The Chronicles of the Denim jacketů Part 4a - INDEPENDENCE DAY LIZ: I don't even know how to explain it, Maria, but listen. Are you listening to me? MARIA: I'm listening. LIZ: When Max kissed me, it was like, I don't know. Ok, it was like I saw things, all right? I...I could like, feel the universe... MARIA: Ok, ok, stop. Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. LIZ: What? MARIA: All right. I have just the thing for you, all right? Open your mouth. LIZ: What? MARIA: Just open your mouth, ok? LIZ: Ok, fine. Oh, that...that's really gross. What is it? MARIA: What is it? It's grief relief. LIZ: What? MARIA: I got it at my mother's shop. It's this herbal remedy that shocks the body back into reality when the mind's gone into overload. Veterinarians use it to calm wild animals. LIZ: Oh, well that...that's great. MARIA: Here, you can have this, and any time you feel yourself spiraling out of control, put 4 drops under your tongue, ok? LIZ: Ok. MARIA: Now would be a good time. LIZ: Hey. MAX: Hi. What's that? LIZ: Oh, um, it...it's nothing. You know, Max, the other night, when...when we kissed, I, um... MAX: Yeah. ISABEL: Hey. Something's up with Michael. He's acting weird. MAX: Weirder than usual? ISABEL: Yeah, no, I just saw him at the other end of the hall, and he just went the other way. MAX: Well, maybe he didn't see you. ISABEL: No, he was ignoring me. He practically ran into the bathroom. Will you just go in there and see what's going on? MAX: Right. ISABEL: Thank you. MAX: I'll see you later. Sorry. LIZ: It's ok.
