5.   JUDITH:                (SHOCKED SURPRISE) Gosh Don, there are so many
                            squatters on your farm. I had no idea there were so many.     20. GUMA:     So, you have been married for 17 years, then?

6.   GUMA:                  (SURPRISE) Really Judith? How couldn’t you when you           21. JUDITH:   It is hard to imagine we have been together that long…
                            have been in Rock Point all these years?
                                                                                          22. GUMA:     So, is it a good marriage?
7.   JUDITH;                You would be amazed at how contained my life is. I hardly
                            come to this part of Rock Point. Certainly not since those    23. JUDITH:   (HINT OF SADDNESS) We are fine…not the fireworks it

8.   GUMA:                  (LAUGHS LIGHTLY) ha those were the days, eh? Little did       24. GUMA:     (CONCERNED) You don’t sound that happy, Judith
                            we know what life had in store... Now I have to try and put
                            everything back in order.                                     25. JUDITH:   I wouldn’t say I’m unhappy. But, well…he has taken a

10. GUMA:                   (POSITIVELY) I am making progress. It is taking shape                       that?
                            now.
                                                                                          27. JUDITH:   Not really…it’s just…well…his second wife…sometimes we
11. JUDITH:                 It will be a fine place when you are finally done. I often                  don’t get along so well. But, enough about me, what about
                            wished I could stay in a place like this.                                   you? Are you married?

12. GUMA:                   (AFFECTIONATELY) Yes, but we both took different              28. GUMA:     (PROUDLY) Yes, very happily too. Amelia is such a lovely
                            directions. What happened to you?                                           lady and mother. The two of you will really love each other.

13. JUDITH:                 I got married to Monday. He owns the garage in town.          29. JUDITH:   Where is Amelia? She’s not with you?

14. GUMA:                   (A LITTLE SURPRISED) Monday is your husband? The              30. GUMA:     No. (SADLY) She is not too excited about moving to Rock
                            fellow from the garage?                                                     Point.

33. JUDITH:                (SUGGESTIVE) what are you going to do about Amelia not        49. STEVE:    (FRIENDLY) What in your opinion would be the best gift
                           wanting to come to Rock Point?                                              for my girlfriend? A pendant or necklace? What about a
                                                                                                       bracelet or earrings?

35. GUMA:                  (CLEARS THROAT) I will just have to bury myself in my
                           work. I can’t help it but it has got to be done.              51. STEVE:    I want to know what I should buy before I decide. Maybe a
                                                                                                       bracelet? Where are they from?

37. JUDITH:                (CHANGING SUBJECT. DISSAPPOINTED) Oh! What                                  silver or gold?
                           happened to that old building? The shed where you used to
                           store your grain?                                             53. STEVE:    I think I like the gold.

38. GUMA:                  I had to tear it down because the squatters had vandalized    54. VENDOR:   Is your girl light skinned or dark?
                           it for roofing.
                                                                                         55. STEVE:    My Vicky is dark
39. JUDITH:                That’s so sad. That place had such special memories for me.
                                                                                         56. VENDOR:   Then if you really want to impress this Vicky, buy her a
40. GUMA:                  (INTIMATELY) Those were special memories I must say.                        pendant. They are very catchy and the in thing these days.
                                                                                                       These ones here are very good and they don’t fade.
41. JUDITH:                (AFFECTIONATELY) it’s funny. When you are a teenager,
                           you think you will never fall that much in love again.        57. STEVE:    I know that they fade. All these copy cat things fade.

42. GUMA:                  (PASSIONATE) And were you in love?                            58. VENDOR:   (IMPRESSED) I can see you know a lot of these things.

44. ALPHONSE:              (CALLING OUT) Mr. Guma? (URGENTLY) Mr. GUMA                   60. VENDOR:   (LAUGHING) You mean it is not forever?

45. GUMA:                  Alphonse, what was that?!                                     61. STEVE:    If it was forever I would not come and buy her anything
                                                                                                       from these stands.

66. VENDOR:   Brother, this thing is very expensive. How much are you
              willing to add?                                                 82. OC:                      So somebody threw a rock at your window? Eh? And on the

68. VENDOR:   Okay pay. Trust me she will appreciate this one.
                                                                              84. OC:                      Can I see the note?
69. STEVE:    Thank you. (SHOKED SURPRISE) Oh, hello Stella.
                                                                              85. GUMA:                    It is right here.
70. STELLA:   (SUSPICIOUSLY) What are you doing here, Steve? And
              who are you buying that cheap thing for?                        86. OC:                      (READING) This is my farm, get out! Beware! It is a threat
                                                                                                           alright but not a strong one. Do you want to press charges?
71. STEVE:    (CHOKED) For you of course, my darling.                                                      Something that would shut this Jackson up?

72. STELLA:   (DISGUST) You know I do not wear this stuff. Ha, you are        87. GUMA:                    I am not too sure about that. I would rather do things the
              wasting your money, you know exactly what I like. Here                                       right way.
              mister, take it back. I hope for your sake that you are not
              stringing me along, Steve.                                      88. OC:                      A guy like Jackson does not understand the right way,
                                                                                                           Guma. You send him letters and he still does this?
73. STEVE:    Stella, how could you think a thing like that… It’s just that
              school has been busy…                                           89. GUMA:                    The guy is ignorant. Maybe he can’t read. The less publicity

74. STELLA:   (SARCASTICALLY) Yeah… well…See you later.
                                                                              90. OC:                      I can easily apply pressure on Jackson quietly. Nobody
75. STEVE:    (CALLING AFTER HER) I’ll come and see you soon.                                              would know. I could just send my boys around to talk to
                                                                                                           him. He will get the message.
76. STELLA:   (CALLING BACK AS SHE WALKS AWAY) You know
              where I live.                                                   91. GUMA:                    No, Jackson was probably drunk.

77. VENDOR:   (LAUGHING) Vicky huh? Does your Stella know about your          92. OC:                      So if he was drunk, why didn’t you just run after him? He
              Vicky?                                                                                       could not have been too far away. You could have

78. STEVE:    (ANGRY) That is none of your business. (AGGRESSIVE)
              Give me back my pendant.                                        93. GUMA:                    Because OC, my guest was upset and she did not want me
                                                                                                           running after the culprits.

95. GUMA:                   (RELUCTANTLY) It was Madam Judith visiting me.
                                                                                           111. STEVE:   Now open them.
96. OC:                     (LAUGHING) I see. The reason you could not give chase
                            was because you were on the job with Judith? Eh? That is a     112. VICKY:   What’s this you are giving me? I know it is just some cheap
                            perfectly reasonable explanation.                                            jewelry.

97. GUMA:                   (OBJECTING) It was nothing like that. Judith is simply a       113. STEVE:   (PLAYFULLY) It’s not cheap. It’s a zin-zong special
                            friend and she was just visiting.                                            delivery from Congo.

98. OC:                     It’s okay. No need for explanations. A man is a man, but       114. VICKY:   Oh You flatter me.
                            maybe you should be more careful because Judith is known
                            as the wife of somebody.                                       115. STEVE:   (AFECCTIONATELY) You are worth it my dear. Did you

99. GUMA:                   Nothing like that happened. Judith is just a friend and that                 diamonds back, crossing water, swamps, crocodiles, hippos,
                            was the end of it. After the incident, I took her halfway                    army rebels in full uniform and even the ant poaching unit
                            home.                                                                        who came within a whisker of taking my life?

100. OC:                    I know that much. You were already seen doing that.            116. VICKY:   (CROONING) You did that all for me? Oh Steve.

101. GUMA:                  Goodness! Nothing in Rock Point is a secret.                   117. STEVE:   (BOASTING) What’s more, I would go back again for you
                                                                                                         my dear.
102. OC:                    I agree. Nothing is.

103. GUMA:                  But it did not happen like that.
                                                                                           119. STEVE:   (CUNNINGLY) What is it that I should stay around for?
104. OC:                    (JOCULAR) Maybe Jackson can tell us.
                                                                                           120. VICKY:   What do you want?
105. GUMA:                  (SERIOUSLY) I do not think that is funny OC.
                                                                                           121. STEVE:   (CUNNINGLY) Surprise me.

                            you the lawful owner of this pendant with a gold-embossed      125. STEVE:   Nothing more spicy than that? Nothing adventurous?

128. VICKY:                    (CALLING OUT) Hey? Where is my guest of honor going?
                                                                                              146. JUDITH:   I have no idea. Don thinks it might have been one of the

134. JUDITH:                   (WHISPERING) Lisa, I visited Don Guma. At his farm.
                               When someone threw a stone through his window.                 152. JUDITH:   Yes I think so. I was so surprised how it all came back

136. JUDITH:                   (LAUGHING) Slow down Lisa. One question at a time.
                                                                                              154. JUDITH:   But he is a happily married man!

                                                                                              155. LISA:     How can you be so sure that he is happy? You have never

139. LISA:                     (UNBELIEVING) You went there alone!?                           156. JUDITH:   I must say, he is a mystery wrapped in an enigma around
                                                                                                             Rock Point.
140. JUDITH:                   It was quite innocent, so don’t get any ideas. It was during
                               the day.                                                       157. LISA:     But then again, you are both married, so is it realistic to

141. LISA:                     Still, people will talk…                                                      an affair?

158. JUDITH:            (THOUGHTFULLY) Think about the effects on my children         170. GUMA:   (TAKEN ABACK) Nana! That is quite absurd.
                        should the whole community find out. It is indeed
                        unrealistic. Day dreaming never hurt anyone though! But I     171. NANA:   It is not so absurd. A few people are saying that Judith
                        cannot help having feelings for him.                                       came here to the farm and that the two of you were alone.

159. TOPI:              (GOSSIPY) Are you two talking about Don Guma?                 172. GUMA:   (DEFENSIVE) It is true that she came here, Nana, but

231. LILLIAN:               (EMBARRASSED) Flower, please.                                   247. LILLIAN:   No I did not. It hurt a lot. I cannot describe what I felt.

232. FLOWER:                Okay, now I know that whoever gave it to you must be            248. FLOWER:    You will get used to it.

                            may begin to suspect something. She already thinks there is

                            You did not take marriage vows, girl, so it’s not your
                            problem.                                                       (End of scene 5)

Narrator:          Last time on Rock Point 256… (edit in short clips from 2 or 3 key
                   scenes—include something from Scene 3 of Episode 10 where
                   Solomon and Lillian end up consumating their relationship).

                   for a gift. I wonder who it’s for….                                                           Crushes and attraction.

Narrator:          Stella is certainly becoming a nuisance for Steve… Speaking of          NARR F:               (WITH AUTHORITY) You know the expression… ‘don’t step on a

NARR M:            Yeah, no matter the size of the village, it seems there is always
                   someone watching.                                                           Narrator:   Can Judith and Guma remain friends? How will Vicky repay Steve

NARR F:            (KNOWINGLY) And waiting to gossip.                                                      Solomon? Learn all this and more next time on Rock Point 256.

NARR M:            (LAUGHS)                                                                                                 ...OUTRO...

NARR F:            Really, with all of that talking at the salon, Judith is only now
                   starting to realize what her daughter is going through. All of those
                   emotions from her school-day crush are coming back.

NARR M:            It’s funny how parents forget. Their children are experiencing all of
                   the crazy emotions that they had.

NARR F:            (SENTIMENTAL) Yeah, imagine the first time a boy talks to you in a
                   nice way. Or gives you a gift that you think shows a real
                   commitment.

NARR M:            (NOSTALGIC) Yeah, all of those feelings can be too much – even for
                   guys. You know the first time that a girl gives you a handkerchief.
                   You end up wiping your face at anytime just to show it off!
                   (GIGGLING MEANWHILE)

NARR F:            That was a nice little tradition and so innocent.

NARR M:            (AS AN ASIDE) Yeah, quite different from those flashy gifts of today.

NARR F:            So, tell the secret, how can a girl really know that the boy cares for
                   her? How can we help other girls not get fooled.

NARR M:            Well, let’s ask the guys to write in. They should share with us, how
                   they tell their friend that they really are serious and they’re not there
                   to play.




NARR F:           While we wait for the letters, let’s settle on some old fashioned advice
                  which is still good. If a boy really loves you, he’ll wait for you. He
                  won’t pressure you to have sex.
NARR M:(MATTER OF FACT) That’s right and he’ll do things in the proper way. He’ll
respect you and make sure that your parents support you in the steps that you take.




                                                                                                                                                                         10
