WHIPLASH MC OC 4-1-15 INT. COFFEE SHOP ANDREW -Together this is what’s going to happen. I’m going to keep pursuing what I’m pursuing, and it’s going to take up more and more of my time. And you’re going to just grow to resent me. At a certain point, you’ll tell me to ease up on the drumming And I’ll start to resent you for even asking me that. I’ll feel like you’re dragging me down, you’ll feel like you don’t matter -- and before long, we’ll hate each other. So I think we should just cut it off now, cleanly, for those reasons.( A beat. Nicole is silent. Finally, Andrew adds--Because I want to be great.) NICOLE- And you’re not. ANDREW -I want to be one of the greats. NICOLE -And I would stop you from doing that. ANDREW --Yes. NICOLE -You know I would stop you from doing that. You know that for a fact. ANDREW -Yes. NICOLE -And when I did see you, you would treat me like shit, because I’m some girl who doesn’t know what she wants, and you have a path, and you’re going to be great, and therefore you won’t be able to give me the time of day because you have bigger things to pursue. ANDREW -That’s right. That’s exactly my point. Beat. NICOLE -You’re right. We should not be dating. (She gets up.) ANDREW -I’m glad we had this talk. NICOLE -Me too. (With that, she turns and leaves. We linger on Andrew, the look on his face... “Did I just fuck up...? No, I’m good.”)
