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

Preston: Look, I don't know about you, but I really believe that there is one person out there ... for everybody. That's what this is about ... (points to letter he is holding in his hand) It's not just some sappy love letter telling her how my heart stops everytime that I see her. It's in there though. It's not just to tell her that I think she's more than just the homecoming queen. Or Mike's girlfriend. That there is this amazing person inside her that nobody bothers to see. It's in there too ... but, what it's really about, is that if she'd just give me a chance, just one chance ... maybe we could find out if there is a reason for all of this. Why she's not with Mike tonight and after four years, I'm still here with this letter. Maybe we could find out what that reason is. Y'know? It's time to find out. I think I'm ready to do this. Finally. Any words of encouragement?
