Rockin’ The Suburbs (2001)
INT. DORM ROOM – DAY
MILES enters and sits at his desk. He gets out papers, ready to spend his night studying.
(to himself, lonely)
I love math. Seriously, numbers are so cool…
INSET: A Ben Folds music video begins to play on the TV set.
(to himself, even lonelier)
If math was girl, I bet she’d be hot- hey, what’s that?
He gets up and walks to the TV set. He listens to a song told from the perspective of a father writing to his son. His father muses with both regret for his own shortcomings and pride for his son.
(to no one but himself)
I must have that album. That that song is off. Of.
