Marybeth: Caaasseey...come out, come out where ever you are (walking through the aisles of lockers) You know in my world Casey there were limitless oceans as far as the eye can see. Beautiful, huh? Till it started to dry out. So I excaped came here, and I met you, all of you, all of you were different from the others. You were lost and lonely, just like me. And I thought that maybe i could give you a taste of my world. A world without anger, without fear, without attitude. Where the under atchiever goes home at night to parents that care. The jock can be smart, the ugly duckling beautiful, and the class wuss doesnt have to live in terror. The new girl - well - the new girl she can just fit right in with anybody. people who are just like her. You see Casey, even Marybeth's feelings can be hurt by a bunch of pathetic, lost, little outcasts who truly believe that their disaffected lonely life is the only way they can survive. I can make you apart of something so special Casey, so perfect, so fearless....Don't you want that Casey?
Casey (Elijah Wood): (shouting) I'd rather be afraid!
Marybeth: Fine. Alright. Have it your way. Cause this is where your land of fiction gets it right. We win. End of story.
