BRIAN

Princeton!

PRINCETON
Yeah.

BRIAN
Listen, buddy, nobody's seen ya for two weeks. What's up with that?

PRINCETON
I went to work for a temp agency, and they fired me for being too
depressing on the phone. I maxed out my cards. I'm two months
behind in rent. I totally messed up my personal life. Oh, and Brian --
I still haven't found my purpose!

All right. Get off your ass and stop worrying! Everyone's getting
together to mess around the city today.

BRIAN
When I say "everyone", that includes you!
(sung)
There is life outside your apartment
I know it's hard to conceive,
but there's life outside your apartment,
and you're only gonna see it if you leave.
There is cool Sh*t to do,
but it can't come to you.
And who knows, dude,
you might even score!
There is life outside your apartment,
but you've got to open the door!

PRINCETON
(spoken)
No, thanks, I'm staying in.

BRIAN
Don't tell me I gotta force you.

KATE
Oh! Itís you!

LUCY
Are you the cleaning lady?

KATE
I will not rise to your bait. Where is Princeton?

LUCY
He is... finishing up in the shower. You need somethiní ?

KATE
I want to leave him this note. Thatís all.

LUCY
Ha! Oh, that kid can be busy all night... Hey girl!
Do you mind checking up to see if there are any scratch marks on my back?

KATE
Oh! Yes! I see them. It looks like they say, ďhelp meĒ! (She leaves).

LUCY
(to Princeton off stage) Hey kid, almost done in there?


PRINCETON
Yeah... Iím drying up.

LUCY
He doesnít need to be messing with some monster! (She tears the letter).

Scene 4
(Brian and Nicky come in)
NICKY
Itís been a hard few weeks, Brian, after Rod kicked me out.
I wanted to say, thank you for letting me staying with you and your lovely bride.

BRIAN
Actually, I wanted to talk with you about that.
(CE comes in)

CE
Brian, you tell him to go!

BRIAN
Honey...
CE
I no do your housework! I no cook for you and clean for you and pick up all your messing!
What if he think us are his cleaning lady! This morning I take a shower and I pick
up soap and I say: who put the strange green pubic hairs on soap?
It donít belong to me, it donít belong to Brian, who then could it be?
I about to kill him! Go away! (She leaves)

NICKY
But... but...I...

BRIAN
Sorry, buddy.

NICKY
I donít know where to go!

BRIAN
Well, you can stay with Princeton! Or... Kate?

NICKY
I did already, and they kicked me out too.

BRIAN
Thereís got to be someone who can help you out, buddy. Sorry. (He leaves)
(Gary has come in)

NICKY
Well... ha, ha... Good evening there, Gary!

GARY
Hi, Nicky!

NICKY
Listen, Gary, Iíve no place to stay and I was wondering if I could just, you know,
sleep on your floor, just for the night...

GARY
I see.. how about ... NO!

NICKY
Oh, Iíve asked everyone and if you donít take me, where will I live?

GARY
How about on the street?

NICKY
You mean I should be homeless?
GARY
Sure

NICKY
Oh, thatís a terrible way to live!

GARY
Oh, yeah? Try being that on age fifteen. Look, kid, I know about living in the dumps.
But look at the bright side.
Think of all the joy youíll bring to others if they find out just how miserable you are.

NICKY
What?

Schadenfreude

GARY COLEMAN
Right now you are
down and out and
feeling really crappy

NICKY
I'll say.

GARY COLEMAN
And when I see how
sad you are
it sort of makes me...
happy!

NICKY
Happy?!

GARY COLEMAN
Sorry, Nicky, human nature --
nothing I can do!
It's...
schadenfreude!
Making me feel glad
that I'm not you!

NICKY
(spoken)
Well that's not very nice, Gary!

GARY COLEMAN
I didn't say it was nice! But everybody does it!
(sung)
D'ja ever clap when a
waitress falls and drops
a tray of glasses?

NICKY
Yeah...

GARY COLEMAN
And it ain't it fun to
watch figure skaters
falling down on their asses?


NICKY
Sure!

GARY COLEMAN
And don'tcha feel all
warm and cosy,
watching people
out in the rain!

NICKY
You bet!

GARY COLEMAN
That's...

GARY AND NICKY
Schadenfreude!

GARY COLEMAN
People taking pleasure in your pain!

NICKY
(spoken)
Oh, schadenfreude, huh? What's that, some kinda Nazi word?

GARY COLEMAN
Yup! It's German for "happiness at the misfortune of others!"

NICKY
"Happiness at the misfortune of others." That IS German!
(sung)
Watching a vegetarian
being told she just
ate chicken

GARY COLEMAN
Or watching a
frat boy realize
just what he put his dick in!

NICKY
Being on an elevator
when somebody shouts
"Hold the door!"

GARY AND NICKY
"NO!"
Schadenfreude!

GARY COLEMAN
"Fuck you lady, that's what stairs are for!"

NICKY
Oooh, how about...
Straight-A students getting Bs?

GARY COLEMAN
Exes getting STDs!

NICKY
Waking doormen from their naps!

GARY COLEMAN
Watching tourists reading maps!

NICKY
Football players getting tackled!

GARY COLEMAN
CEOs getting shackled!

NICKY
Watching actors never reach

GARY AND NICKY
The ending of their Oscar speech!
Schadenfreude!
Schadenfreude!
Schadenfreude!
Schadenfreude!

GARY COLEMAN
The world needs people like you and me
who've been knocked around by fate.
'Cause when people see us,
they don't want to be us,
and that makes them feel great.

NICKY
Sure! We provide a vital service to society!

GARY AND NICKY
You and me! Schadenfreude!
Making the world a better place...
Making the world a better place...
Making the world a better place...
to be!

GARY COLEMAN
S-C-H-A-D-E-N-F-R-E-U-D-E!

Scene 5
KATE
(From the top of the Empire State)
All those people look like ants down there
and their parts look about as tiny as the ones inside the men I dated.
Princeton gave me this penny once, he said it was a symbol of his hopes and dreams.
And he never called though I asked him to and I donít see him anywhere.
Pretty soon heíll be an hour late if he comes at all.

(Lucy and Princeton come in)

PRINCETON
Hey, Lucy! Where did you go this morning? Iíve been looking all over for you!

LUCY
Oh, man! Why do I always get the clingy guys?

PRINCETON
No, you left, thatís all. And I didnít say goodbye.

LUCY
Listen, kid, sorry to be honest, but look at me! I can have my pick of the litter!
If I wanted a relationship Iíd find a guy with a good job, who has a future and some money.
And not some well bone babyface kid who need to run his parents and cant get his act together.
(She leaves)

PRINCETON
I think I heard a compliment there, somewhere. (He leaves)

KATE
Iím gonna get rid of this stupid penny. And Iíll make a wish.
I hope, more than anything, I hope I find someone who I love, someone who loves me back.
(She throws the penny).
Somehow I donít feel any better.
(Princeton and Lucy come in)

PRINCETON
Lucy, Iím only looking for my purpose. My big break, my big revelation.

LUCY
You know the only revelation people had in life, kiddo? Theyíre not special.
Youíre not special. Youíre not luckier or more gifted than anyone else.

PRINCETON
You donít think so.

LUCY
No!

PRINCETON
Well, Im gonna run past by this place, Iíll think about what you said just now.

LUCY
Whatís so special about this place?

PRINCETON
Oh, you mean, here, on 34tth an 5th, at the entrance of the Empire State building?

(The penny falls just on Lucyís head. She falls down unconscious)


PRINCETON
Lucy?

Scene 6
The hospital

PRINCETON
Lucy, can you hear me?

KATE
Princeton, I... I heard your friend had an accident. How is she?

PRINCETON
Her head fell off in the ambulance. And the doctors spent the night sewing it back on.
But the prognosis is good.

KATE
What happened to her?

PRINCETON
Some idiot threw a penny from the Empire State building.

KATE
... Sh*t!...

PRINCETON
Kate, what are you doing here?

KATE
Why didnít you bother in saying you werenít coming?

PRINCETON
What?

KATE
I told you, in my note...

PRINCETON
What note?

KATE
The one I left with... Oh! I feel better now!

PRINCETON
How are you, Kate?

KATE
Honestly?

PRINCETON
Of course!

KATE
Iím working in Starbucks. I miss my students. I work all day and Iím poorer than ever.

PRINCETON
And what about your dream?

KATE
Some peopleís dreams come true, but I donít think Iím one of those people.

PRINCETON
Donít say that.

KATE
But thatís the way life is, Princeton.
Nobody teaches you that when you are a kid,
because if you knew, no one would ever dream or want to grow up.
But you canít stop growing up. Iím late for work.

PRINCETON
Kate, listen! I wish you were happy. And I wish I had my life together,
but I donít and I donít know whatís gonna happen.
And Iím so sorry for hurting your feelings because I think youíre so special. Sorry,
that wasnít more articulate.

KATE
It was perfectly articulate. I should go. (She leaves)

Scene 7

NICKY
Help the homeless! Help the homeless! Oh, hi, Rod!

ROD
Is that the wind I hear wrestling through the branches?

NICKY
Listen, Rod, for now on Iíll believe anything you say about yourself.
And I apologize for being such a messy roommate.
And now that I have a place on my own, right that
dumpster over there, I appreciate how hard it is to keep things nice! Well...?
(Christmas Eve comes in)
Ok Rod, buddy, I see you around.

CE
Rod. Are you Ok?

ROD
Christmas Eve... Can I get soft with you briefly? (He lies on CEís lap).

CE
Sure. What the problem today?

ROD
Well... ití sad... itís really... I canít...

CE
Go on...

ROD
Well, I look at my friends who are married now, and... well... I look at you and Brian... and...

CE
Go on...

ROD
Why donít I have someone by my side who makes me feel special and safe?
Someone who... loves me the way I love them...

CE
Rod... you special... Rod... you safe.

ROD
I miss Nicky.

CE
I know you do.

Blackout.
Scene 8
(Kate is on the observation deck of the Empire State Building)
I Wish I Could Go Back to College
KATE MONSTER
I wish I could go back to college.
Life was so simple back then.
(Nicky appears on a dark corner, shivering)

NICKY
What would I give to go back and live
in a dorm with a meal plan again!

(Nicky and Kate sigh. Lights rise on Princeton, at the hospital, sitting next to Lucy's bed)

PRINCETON
I wish I could go back to college.
In college you know who you are.
You sit in the quad
and think, "Oh my God!
I am totally gonna go far!"

ALL
How do I go back to college?
I don't know who I am anymore!

PRINCETON
I wanna go back to my room and find
a message in dry-erase pen on the door!
Ohhh...
I wish I could just drop a class...

NICKY
Or get into a play...

KATE MONSTER
Or change my major...

PRINCETON
Or f*** my T.A.

ALL
I need an academic advisor to point the way!
We could be...

Sitting in the computer lab,
4 a.m. before the final paper is due,
cursing the world 'cause I didn't start sooner,
and seeing the rest of the class there, too!

PRINCETON
I wish I could go back to college!

ALL
How do I go back to college?!
Ahhhhhhh....

PRINCETON
I wish I had taken more pictures.

NICKY
But if I were to go back to college,
think what a loser I'd be --
I'd walk through the quad, and think
"Oh my God..."

ALL
"These kids are so much younger than me."

Scene 9
NICKY
Help the homeless! Help the homeless! Oooh! Hey Princeton!
Can you spare a quarter?

PRINCETON
Ohhh no Nicky..

NICKY
Ohhh God Nicky! You know you want to, how about a dime?
Can you spare a dime for your old pal?

PRINCETON
I wanna be alone for a while you know...


NICKY
Oh! Come on, please!

PRINCETON
I wanna be left alone okaaay!!!

NICKY
You know what? Maybe you should stop thinking about yourself.
Like you should try... helping someone else out for a change... like me!
Oh... come on Princeton... give me your quarter...
The Money Song
Give me a quarter!
Here in my hat!
Come on, Princeton,
it's as easy as that!
Helping others brings
you closer to God,
so give me a quarter...

PRINCETON
I don't have any change.

NICKY
Hmmm.
Okay, give me a dollar.

PRINCETON
That's not what I meant.

NICKY
Give me a five!

PRINCETON
Are you kidding?

NICKY
The more you give
the more you get.
That's being alive!
All I'm asking you
is to do what Jesus Christ
would do:
He'd give me a quarter --
why don't you?

PRINCETON
(spoken)
All right, all right, here you go.
(he puts money in Nicky's hat)

NICKY
Ahh, thanks!

PRINCETON
Take care. Whoa!

NICKY
What's the matter?

PRINCETON
I feel -- generous!
I feel -- compassionate!

NICKY
You do?

PRINCETON
Yeah! I feel like a new person -- a good person!
Helping other people out makes you feel fantastic!

NICKY
That's what I've been trying to tell you --

PRINCETON
All this time I've been running around thinking about me, me, me -- and where has it gotten me!
I'm gonna do something for someone else!

NICKY
Me?

PRINCETON
No -- Kate! I'm going to raise the money to build that stupid
Monster School she's always talking about!
(sung)
Give me your money!

NICKY
What?!

PRINCETON
I need it for Kate!

NICKY
I need it to eat!

PRINCETON
Come on, Nicky!

NICKY
Aww, get lost!

PRINCETON
It'll make you feel great!

NICKY
So would a burger!

PRINCETON
When her dream comes true,
it'll all be partly
thanks to you, so
give me your money!

NICKY
I'd like to, but I can't!

PRINCETON
Give me your money!

NICKY
I'd like to, but I need it!

PRINCETON
Give me your money!

NICKY
I'd like to, but I'm homeless!
I can't! I need it! I'm homeless!
I can't! I need it! I'm homeless!
I can't! I need it! I'm homeless!
(Princeton slaps Nicky)
Okay, here ya go.

PRINCETON
Thank you!

NICKY
Suddenly, I am feeling
closer to God.
It's time to stop begging!
It's time to start giving!
What can I give to Rod?
Something he'll like so much he'll take me back.
Ooh, I know! I'll find him a boyfriend!

PRINCETON
That's the spirit!

PRINCETON AND NICKY
When you help others,
you can't help helping yourself!
When you can't help others,
you can't help helping yourself!

GARY COLEMAN
(spoken)Hey boys, what's the hat for?

NICKY
Ooh, we're collecting money!

PRINCETON
It's for Kate! We're raising money to build her dream school!
(sung)
Give us your money!

NICKY
You'll be glad that you did!
GARY COLEMAN
That's just what my parents
told me when I was a kid!
Sh*t!

NICKY
But giving feels so great...

GARY COLEMAN
And I bet it wouldn't hurt your chances with Kate.

PRINCETON
Well, that too.

GARY COLEMAN
I'll give you a dollar.

PRINCETON
You're a gentleman and a scholar!

CHRISTMAS EVE
(spoken)
We so happy! We just exchange all your wedding gifts for cash!

BRIAN
Honey, don't tell them that!

CHRISTMAS EVE
We get about two thousand bucks!

BRIAN
Uh, yeah. So -- thanks, everybody!

CHRISTMAS EVE
We rich!

PRINCETON
(sung)
Give us your money!

NICKY
Give us your money!

GARY COLEMAN
Give us your goddamned money!

PRINCETON
Give us the dough!

GARY AND NICKY
Give us the dough!

PRINCETON, GARY AND NICKY
We're raising money for
a monster school,
but we've got a ways to go!
PRINCETON
Sounds like you've got
money to burn...

NICKY
And it's not like money that
you had to earn...

PRINCETON, GARY AND NICKY
So give us your money --

CHRISTMAS EVE
(spoken)
A Monster School?

BRIAN
Sounds like a good cause.

CHRISTMAS EVE
Give me your wallet.

PRINCETON
Oh my gosh! I don't know how to thank you guys.
I mean, Kate will be so grateful... that kind of money
is such a great start...(she hands Gary some cash)

GARY COLEMAN
Yeah! Fifteen dollars!

PRINCETON
Fifteen dollars?

CHRISTMAS EVE
Every little bit help!

NICKY
Looks like we're gonna have to ask MORE people!

(They turn to the audience and pass the hat)

ALL
(sung)
Hey!
Give us your money!
All that you've got!
Just fork it on over...

GARY COLEMAN
Or some puppets will get shot!

PRINCETON
Hey!

ALL
It's time to pass the hat

GARY COLEMAN
and there' nothing you can do 'bout that.

ALL
So
Give us your money!
Give us your money!
Give us your money!
When you help others,
you can't help helping yourself!
When you help others,
you can't help helping yourself!
Every time you do good deeds
you're also serving your own needs.
When you help others,
you're really helping yourself!
When you give to a worthy cause,
you'll feel as jolly as Santa Claus.
When you help others,
you can't help helping yourself!
(Princeton counts the money).

CE
(spoken)
How much do we get?

PRINCETON (depending on what the audience put on the hats)
Boy, it's not very much at all, is it?

CE
Those people bunch of cheap snakes! (to the audience).

BRIAN
Never say never, Princeton,
there's still one more person
we have to hit up!

(Trekkie pops out of his window)

TREKKIE MONSTER
No! No! No! Go away. Me busy.

CHRISTMAS EVE
But it for good cause!

TREKKIE MONSTER
What in it for me? Go away!

PRINCETON
I guess Kate'll never get her school for Monsters.

TREKKIE MONSTER
What you say?

BRIAN
Kate wants to open a school for Monsters.
TREKKIE MONSTER
School for Monsters? Me never hear of that!
School For Monsters/ The Money Song reprise
(sung)

PRINCETON
(spoken)
You said you couldn't make you dreams come true by yourself,
so I shot for the stars.
(Sung)
You've got to go after
the things you want
while you're still in
your prime...

KATE MONSTER
There's a fine, fine line
between
love...
(spoken)
Thank you, Princeton.

and hiring teachers and choosing textbooks...

PRINCETON
My PURPOSE!
Look at this kid, here, all fresh-faced and new and not knowing anything!
He has no idea what he's in for! He thinks the hard part's over, but it's not!
And maybe he needs a little help! Maybe my purpose is to take
everything I'm learning and put it -- put it into a show!

BRIAN
Are you high?

NEWCOMER
And I'm not some young kid who doesn't know anything. f*** you!

For Now
