Big Mistake

K.B. Wellington S


Car with Parents and Children: Ariana: Why are you making this a discussion? Tez: I’m making this a discussion because I feel like it is important that we learn to fully trust each other. I mean, we are married with two kids, Ariana. Ariana: I know, but I don’t want to talk about it. Tez: Well we have to talk about it Ari. Your mother told us some really intense stuff that freaked you out. What did your father do to you? Ariana: I SAID I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT TEZ! I’M DONE! Tez: Hey, there is no need to yell……. Ariana: Well, I said I don’t want to talk about this, and instead you disregard my wishes like you always do. Tez: That’s not true. Ariana: Yes, it is! You never try to let me have my way ONE TIME! We always have to do whatever you want and I’m sick of it! Tez: Well, I’m sorry I love and care about you Ariana! SORRY FOR TRYING TO BE SUCH A GOOD HUSBAND FOR YOU! *As they argue, the toddler starts crying of irritation, hating to watch their parents fight, while the other sibling shuts down in terror as they witness their fight, and eventually the accident* Car with Two Teenagers: Tami: Hey, what are you doing? Destiny: Nothing, just texting Josh. Tami: Isn’t he that cute boy you’ve been talking to lately? Destiny: Yeah. I have a feeling we might go out soon. Tami: Well, I don’t think it’s a good idea for you to text and drive. Destiny: Why? It’s not like anything’s going to happen. Tami: Well, something might. I just don’t want to get into an accident. Destiny: Oh please. Tami, we’ll be just fine. We’re driving in a neighborhood anyway, so we’re completely fine. Tami: Okay……….I just have a bad feeling. Destiny: Oh my god, Tami. Stop being a buzzkill. Everything’s going to be fine. Just chill. Tami: Alright. I was just saying. *Destiny’s cell phone vibrates and makes a notification noise* Destiny: Oh! That’s Josh again. Tami: Des, I really think you shouldn’t. Destiny: Tami, it’s gonna be o- Tami: DESTINY! STOP SIGN! *Destiny slams her foot on the brakes, but sadly, that doesn’t help the situation. Destiny and Tami slipped and slide into the other car with the family, and clashed against each other violently, with the one with the family flipped over. The car with the two teenagers crashes into a tree with a big BANG! No one survived that car accident except for two people: the toddler and Destiny. Now the toddler has to live with the fact that he never knew his family, and Destiny has to live with the fact she practically had some part in killing Tami. The lesson is, don’t argue or text and drive because you never know what could happen on the road; especially with ice on the ground.*


A car accident has occurred during winter, with snow and ice on the ground in this script. In one car, there were two parents, a mother and a father in their middle aged years, with two of their children, one a toddler, and one in their middle school years. In the second car, there were two teenagers in the front seat, one 16 and one 17. The 17 year old will be texting and driving in this scenario. The first part of your dialogue will be the car with the two parents, and the second part of the dialogue will be the two teenagers.
