Can't Hardly Wait
written by Deborah Kaplan & Harry Elfont

Preston: This is so perfect. Amanda Beckett is single and on the night of this party. A party I'll be attending a party she'll be attending. It's all falling into place, it's's...fate.
Denise (Lauren Ambrose): What, I thought we weren't even going to this party?
Preston: Look, all I'm saying is, Amanda and I are connected. We have been ever sense the first day she came to school. It was October, freshman year. First day in history I had ever missed the bus. If I had arrived on time, I never would of seen her. But as it was, I was the first person at Hills High to set eyes on Amanda Beckett. It was her first day at school. Then, I'm sitting in class enjoying a late breakfast, when suddenly, out of all the class rooms in the entire school ... she comes into mine. And where does the teacher sit her ... right next to me. Now, up until now, we can write this off to a coincidence. But then, she reaches into her bag and pulls out a strawberry Pop-Tart. The very same breakfast pastry that I was consuming at that very moment. What was I to do, how was I to proceed?
(In flashback)
Teacher (Jamie Donnelly): Would anyone like to volunteer to give Amanda a tour of the school?
Mike Dexter (Peter Facinelli): I will!
Preston: Mike Dexter ..... That's where I lost her. I had a clear shot and I hesitated. But fate has finally given me a second chance.
