from her room. She hands one to Daria)

Daria: I dont know about this, Jane.
Daria: What if he gets mad?
(She hits him with the pillow and Trent wakes up (GASP!). When he
sees who woke him up and how, he charges after Jane)
Trent: Youre gonna get it Janey!
(Daria just stands there while they charge around the room . When
Trent finally notices her, he stops chasing Jane.)
Trent: Oh, Hey, Daria.
(While he says this, Jane charges out of the room. Trent sees the
pillow in Darias hand and she knows that he is thinking that she helped
Jane. So to save time she throws down the pillow and puts her hands in
Daria: OK I surrender.
Trent: Did you help her wake me up?
Daria: No. It was all her.
Trent: Then do you want to help me catch her?
Daria: (smirking) Yeah. That could be fun.
Trent: OK. Then do exactly what I tell you.

pointed at Darias head like it is a gun and she is his hostage. Well also

stifles a laugh.)
Jane *This should be interesting*
Trent: OK, Janey! Come out or your best friend gets it.
Daria: (playing along with what Trent is saying) No, Jane! Dont
surrender because of me!
(Jane, thinking that this is very funny, cant help but burst out
laughing, and because she laughs, they know where she is hiding and
charge at her)
Jane: (seeing that Daria has switched sides) Uh Oh!
(She runs through the kitchen and into the basement closely followed
by Daria and Trent. Jane runs to Trents guitar and picks it up. Trent
stops dead in his tracks, causing Daria to run into him)
Jane: Dont come any closer, or Ill drop it!
Trent: (pleading) Dont hurt it. take me instead.
(Daria and Jane laugh at this and Jane puts the guitar down.)
Jane: How about a truce instead?
(they shake on it)
Trent cont.: Now, why did you wake me up?
