Scene 14

Scene 14

  • Lester and Carolyn arrive at the game. Now it's halftime and the dancing Spartanettes are about to perform. Lester wants to leave right after the performance.
  • Jane starts dancing. She looks pretty unenthusiastic, but she's hitting all her steps.
  • The cheerleaders do a move that reveals Jane's friend, Angela (Mena Suvari), dancing at the back, and Lester goes totally gaga.
  • Suddenly, the scene goes black and the music changes (we're inside Lester's head), and he's focused just on Angela.
  • The rest of the dancers have disappeared, and he's alone in the stands as she dances seductively just for him.
  • She opens her blouse and rose petals come flying out (it's a fantasy, remember).
  • Now we're back in reality, and Lester has a goofy smile on his face.
