Storyboard Text

  • Beginning
  • Cassie, what's wrong? What in the world is going on?
  • Nothing happened, OK? NOTHING happened.
  • Beginning
  • That's a cheat sheet, right? Are you seriously gonna cheat? That's wrong T.J.!!
  • Stacey, look what I got!
  • Middle
  • What are you doin', Stacey! I was gonna get a 100!
  • I had to do it, for your and my own good!
  • But, But... Uhhh, fine!
  • Cassie won't tell Big Ma what she saw in the night before because Stacey made her swear to tell NO ONE! This secret is that she saw these mysterious headlights and she saw Big Ma pull out a gun for defense under Cassie's bed in case The Night Men were to get violent. Stacey doesn't want to tell Big Ma because she thinks she'll get in trouble.
  • Middle
  • Stacey, are you cheating? Come up to get whipped!
  • T.J. has a cheat sheet for the test, and shows Stacey. Stacey is really surprised and kind of reluctant of T.J.'s decision to cheat. This scene shows how T.J. is a cheater who likes to take the easy way out.
  • Middle
  • The Wallace Store
  • I ain't gonna tell Mama... I'm gonna let you, Stacey, tell her yourself.
  • Stacey rips the cheat sheet from T.J. and crumbles it up. He doesn't want to get in trouble and doesn't want T.J. to get in trouble either. Stacey is mad at Stacey but knows deep down that cheating is the wrong thing to do, so he let's Stacey keep it.
  • End
  • Hmmm... Okay. I'll tell her.
  • Please don't tell Mama!
  • Mama notices that Stacey has the cheat sheet and whips him. Stacey doesn't defy her or tell on T.J. because he's a good friend. Unlike Stacey, T.J., the bad friend, doesn't say anything. Stacey is humiliated as far as everyone knows, Stacey is a cheater.
  • Stacey finds T.J. outside the Wallace's Store after school and beats him up while yelling at him for not saying anything about the cheat sheet. Just about when Stacey is gonna finish him off, Mr. Morrison grabs him and takes him away from further violence. He does this because this will give the Logan family a bad reputation.
  • I'm gonna kill you, T.J.!!! I was humiliated in front of the class because of you! And you didn't even say anything!
  • Hey, y'all knock it off!
  • Hey, let me explain!
  • Mr. Morrison and the Logan kids are riding home from school, after the fight, and Cassie, Christopher-John, and Little Man are begging Mr. Morrison to not tell Mama, and Stacey is silent through all of this. Then Mr. Morrison tells them that he is NOT going to tell Mama (they are relieved), and continues by saying that he wants Stacey to tell Mama. Stacey thinks about it, and reluctantly, he decides that he'll tell Mama. Mr. Morrison is proud of Stacey but the rest of the Logan kids disagree with his decision.
