Freddie: (bursting through the door) I am never talking to Sam again!
Freddie: She's upset me, that's why!
Carly: Oh please, I thought you'd be used to that.
Freddie: She said you didn't love me, and never will. I know she's right.
Carly: (jumping up, looking angry) She doesn't know everything!
Freddie: (confused) Huh?
Carly: (sighs) Let's just get ready for the show tonight.
Sam: (walks in) Wassup Carls, Fred-no-one.
Freddie: Get outta here, Puckett!
Carly: Sam, we need to talk about what insults you can give Freddie...
Sam: What do you mean "we need to talk"? It's 5 minutes till showtime.
Freddie: Huh, since when do you care?
Carly: Just come on! (drags Sam out into hallway by the arm)
Sam: What is this about?
Carly: You keep telling Freddie I don't love him.
Sam: Your point is...?
Carly: Nothing. You just... can't say that...
Carly: Well... well... maybe because...
Sam: (jaw drops, almost screaming) You love-
Carly: Shh! (claps hand over Sam's mouth)
Sam: (whispering) You love FREDDIE?
Carly: Well... I... Maybe?!
Sam:Can't wait to see Freddie's face when I-
Carly: You can't tell him!
Sam: (rolls her eyes) Fine, whatever. (they go back inside)
Freddie: 30 seconds till showtime! What took you guys so long?
Carly: (quickly) Nothing.
Sam: (smiling) Yeah... nothing.
(Carly glares at her while Freddie says "In 5, 4, 3, 2...".)
After the show. Carly is sitting on the couch, flipping through a magazine. Freddie comes downstairs)
Freddie: What's up?
Carly: What do you mean?
Freddie: You seemed a bit... off during the show tonight.
Carly: (looking away) I don't know what you're talking about.
Freddie: (puts a hand on Carly's shoulder) Come on, Carly, what's up?
Carly: Nothing, it's... it's just stupid.
Freddie: Ok, then.
(Carly doesn't respond. Freddie looks very concerned)
Freddie: Are you sure there's nothing wrong?
Carly: (slightly sad and angry) Freddie, for the last time, I'm fine!
Freddie: (looks hurt) Oh.
Carly: (looks guilty and hurt) Freddie, I... I didn't mean to...
Freddie: It's cool. I'll... I'll just get home to my mom.
(Freddie leaves. Carly sits on the couch, seeming to be on the verge of tears)
Carly: (muttering) Well, that ruins my chances with him.
Stay tuned for Chapter Two!!!
