He turns to WALLACE WELLS, dark hair, arched eyebrow, disloyal. "WALLACE WELLS, ROOMMATE, 24 YEARS OLD, FUN FACT: HE IS GAY!" SCOTT Before you hear some dirty lies from someone else, yes, I'm dating a 17 year old. Wallace looks up from the NOW magazine he's reading. WALLACE Is he cute? SCOTT Ha, ha, ha, ha. WALLACE Does this mean we have to stop sleeping together? SCOTT Do you see another bed in here? TINY BOXES OF TEXT indicate the ownership of the items in the one room flat: 95% belongs to Wallace, FUTON included. WALLACE Yeah. You're totally my bitch forever. SCOTT So.

RINGY RING. The phone goes. Scott picks up. STACEY (O.S.) Seventeen years old? Scandal! Intercut with STACEY PILGRIM, cute, peppy barista, gabbing on her cellphone in THE SECOND CUP. A sign behind her reads 'oIf you are using your cellphone, you will not be served'�. "STACEY PILGRIM, YOUNGER SISTER, 19, RATING: 'T' FOR TEEN." SCOTT That's not true. Who told you? STACEY Wallace. Duh. SCOTT That gossipy bitch. WALLACE (O.S.) You know me. Scott turns to see Wallace on a second cordless. SCOTT Wallace! Wallace clicks off. Scott sinks into an armchair. STACEY Who is this mysterious child you date? SCOTT Her name is Knives. Knives Chau. STACEY A seventeen year old Chinese schoolgirl? You're ridiculous. SCOTT It's a Catholic school too. STACEY With the uniform and everything? (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 8. 9 CONTINUED: (3) 9 SCOTT Yeah, the whole deal. STACEY Oh my God, you haven't- SCOTT No no no. We haven't even held hands.

STACEY It's been over a year since you got dumped by she-who-will-not-be-named. Scott glances down at the partially obscured NOW magazine, looking into the HOT GIRL'S EYES on the back cover album ad. STACEY (CONT'D) So, are you legitimately moving on, or is this just you being insane? Scott looks at a strip of photobooth pictures: he smiles next to a hot redhead in happier times. SCOTT Can I get back to you on that? A SCHOOL BELL clangs loudly... 10 EXT. CATHOLIC SCHOOL - DAY 10 Wallace and Scott stand outside a CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL. Uniformed boys and girls pour out. WALLACE I do not want to be here. At all. SCOTT This school has boys too. WALLACE I hate you. Even I would think twice about dating a seventeen year old.

Begone! Wallace pulls Knives close. Whispers. WALLACE You're too good for him. Run. 11 INT. THE ARCADE - DAY 11 Scott and Knives play NINJA NINJA REVOLUTION (think a martial arts version of DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION). They punch and kick in unison, side by side. SCOTT Did you know the original name of Pac- man was Puck-man? You would think it's because Pac-Man looks like a yellow hockey puck, but actually it comes from the Japanese phrase paku-paku which means to flap ones mouth open and closed. They changed it over here because Puck-Man is too easy to vandalize. You know, scratch out the P and turn it into an F or whatever? Knives flips over Scott's back in a COMBO move. KNIVES CHAU Ohmigod, like...wow. SCOTT Yeah. Wow. The game ends. CONTINUE appears, counting down: 10...9...8... Scott looks at Knives. She digs for quarters. KNIVES CHAU Oh, I got it!

THE GOODWILL - DAY A13 Scott and Knives shop for T-shirts. Hangers click in time. KNIVES CHAU I don't listen to much music. I know a lot of kids who play piano or whatever, but you guys ROCK.

KNIVES CHAU I mean, you guys are gonna be HUGE. SCOTT Well, we're already pretty big. But it might be cool if cool people wore our T-shirt. Knives speaks to a female clerk, surly with tats and specs: "JULIE, 22, STILLS' GIRLFRIEND, RATING: WHAT IS HER PROBLEM?" KNIVES CHAU Excuse me, do you have anything by 'The Clash At Demonhead'? JULIE Have you tried the section marked 'The Clash At Demonhead'? SCOTT Thank you, Julie. JULIE Are you coming to my party Friday or will you be busy babysitting?

KNIVES CHAU Oh, I heart them so much. SCOTT I hearted them too until they signed to a major label and the singer turned into a total bitch and ruined my life. But that's just me. KNIVES CHAU (OBLIVIOUS) Envy Adams is sooo cool. Do you read her blog? SCOTT Sorry, you were saying about me? 14 EXT.

THE DREAM DESERT - HOTTEST DAY 16 ...Scott wanders alone through a barren land. He falls to his knees next to a lonely cactus. SCOTT Oh God...so...so alone. A MYSTERIOUS GIRL rollerblades across the shifting sands. She wears fishnets, an army jacket, skirt and goggles. Her pink hair is funky but cool. She is hotter than the desert sun. MYSTERIOUS GIRL You're not alone. You're just having some idiotic dream. SCOTT Does that mean we can make out? But she's gone... 17 INT.

SCOTT But there was this girl... WALLACE Girl? OTHER SCOTT Was this an Envy related dream? WALLACE We don't use the E-word in this house. SCOTT No, it wasn't her. It was somebody new... OTHER SCOTT Yay for that. Other Scott goes back to sleep. Wallace rubs his eyes. WALLACE Speaking of new, weren't you supposed to take your fake high school girlfriend to the library a half-hour ago?

THE LIBRARY - DAY 18 KNIVES CHAU What's wrong? (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 14. 18 CONTINUED: 18 Scott is noticeably taller than all the teens in the library. He carries a stack of books for Knives. SCOTT Libraries remind me of grade school. KNIVES CHAU That must seem like a reeeeally long time ago. SCOTT Uh. Let's talk about something else. The hiss of ball bearings catches Scott's attention. He freezes as he sees THE ROLLERBLADING GIRL FROM HIS DREAM skating towards the desk in SEXALICIOUS SLOW MOTION. KNIVES CHAU Do you know that girl? The Rollerblading Girl delivers a package from AMAZON.CA to the librarian. Scott's gaze follows the GIRL as she blades out of the library. Pensive guitar underscores his thoughts. KNIVES CHAU Scott? Scott continues to stare at the girl. Time slows to a crawl. STEPHEN STILLS (O.S.) SCOTT! 19 INT. STEPHEN STILLS' HOUSE - EVENING 19 Scott stands in the rehearsal room, head still in the clouds. STEPHEN STILLS You only played one note for that entire song. SCOTT It was...uh...my hand slipped. KIM PINE Is your girlfriend distracting you? SCOTT My girlfriend?

You know? Like... RAMONA Yeah that's amazing. SCOTT Um...am I dreaming? Ramona looks at Scott blankly. He slowly skulks away. SCOTT (CONT'D) I'll leave you alone forever now. "THEN HE STALKED HER FOR THE REST OF THE PARTY..." Series of quick shots as Scott follows Ramona. He ducks around corners, spies from behind a much bigger dude. Ramona leaves the party. Scott grabs a startled Young Neil. SCOTT DUDE! YOUNG NEIL WHA? SCOTT SHE'S TOTALLY REAL! YOUNG NEIL WHO!? STEPHEN STILLS RAMONA FLOWERS! YOUNG NEIL WHUH? JUMP CUT. Scott RUNS towards Comeau.

SCOTT It's something really cool. You'd be impressed. RAMONA You still have to sign. SCOTT But if I sign for it, you'll leave. RAMONA Yeah. That's how it works. SCOTT Okay well, can we just maybe just hang out sometime? Get to know each other? You're the new kid on the block, right? I've lived here forever.

RAMONA He's...a friend. SCOTT Was he your boyfriend? RAMONA Do you mind if we don't get into that right now? SCOTT It's so not interesting to me. They sit on some swings in the park. RAMONA So what about you? What do you do? SCOTT I'm between jobs. RAMONA Between what and what? SCOTT My last job is a long story filled with sighs. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 30. 34 CONTINUED: (2) 34 RAMONA I know plenty of those. SCOTT Is that why you left New York? RAMONA Pretty much. It was time to head somewhere a little more chilled. SCOTT Well, it's certainly chilled here. RAMONA Yeah. Uh. Chilled as in cold. RAMONA Yeah. SCOTT I'm totally obsessed with you. RAMONA I didn't mean to get you obsessed. SCOTT I just haven't been obsessed with a girl for a long time. It's weird. RAMONA That's probably because you sleep with a guy. SCOTT Um...

RAMONA This is ridiculous. Isn't it like April? SCOTT Yeah. I can barely see you. This whole thing is an unmitigated disaster. RAMONA I think 'act of God' is a pretty decent excuse for a lousy date. SCOTT So this is a 'date', eh? RAMONA Did I say 'date'? Slip of the tongue. SCOTT Tongue... The snow gets heavier still. Ramona walks away. RAMONA Anyway, night's not over yet.

RAMONA'S APARTMENT - NIGHT 35 Scott shivers at the kitchen table of Ramona's cozy, girl friendly apartment. He watches as she slips out of her coat. RAMONA What kind of tea do you want?

SCOTT Did you make some of those up? RAMONA I think I'll have sleepytime. SCOTT That sounds good to me. RAMONA Let me get you a blanket. SCOTT That would actually be awesome. Ramona exits. After a moment alone, Scott ventures upstairs. He wanders towards a half open door. Pushing it open, he finds Ramona in her bedroom in her bra and skirt. RAMONA Dude! I'm changing.

Ramona breaks off, smiling. Scott is in heaven. SCOTT (CONT'D) Were you..were you just going to bring the blanket from your bed? RAMONA I guess... SCOTT Maybe...maybe we should both get under it...since we're so cold. RAMONA Well...what about our tea? SCOTT I can...not have tea. The slinky bassline continues as Ramona takes her skirt off, revealing black panties to complement black bra. Scott takes his shirt off. They tumble onto the bed and make out. Then- RAMONA I changed my mind. SCOTT Changed it to what? From what? RAMONA I don't want to have sex with you, Pilgrim. Not right now. SCOTT Ohh...kay. RAMONA It's not like I'm gonna send you home in a snowstorm or anything. You can sleep in my bed. And I reserve the right to change my mind about the sex later. Ramona curls up next to Scott.

He stands with Wallace and Stacey. She holds hands with a guy wearing glasses. SCOTT You totally came! RAMONA Yes. I did totally come. Scott is so amazed at her presence, his social skills vanish. STACEY Excuse my brother. He's chronically enfeebled. I'm Stacey. RAMONA Hey. STACEY And this is Wallace, his room-mate. WALLACE Hey. STACEY And this is my boyfriend Jimmy.

SCOTT What do I do?! WALLACE FIGHT! Scott throws his bass to Young Neil and BLOCKS Patel with his left arm, then PUNCHES him across the floor with his right. Patel LANDS like a cat, FLIPS his fringe and GLARES at Scott. MATTHEW PATEL Alright. Alright. WALLACE Watch out! It's that one guy! SCOTT Thank you, Wallace! Patel RUNS at Scott. Scott SPIN KICKS Patel in the chin and sends him flying into the air. They land in THE PIT, knocking hipsters down and squaring off in the resulting circle. MATTHEW PATEL You're quite the opponent, Pilgrim. SCOTT Who the hell are you anyway? The LIGHTING GUY spotlights the fighters.

Scott evades and counter-attacks. Patel evades, then lands more punches. Scott jump-spins away from danger. They pause, breathing heavy. WALLACE What's up with his outfit? OTHER HECKLER Yeah! Is he a pirate? Scott looks at Patel's outfit. SCOTT Are you a pirate? MATTHEW PATEL Pirates are in this year! Patel attacks again. They exchange furious blows, until Patel puts Scott in a choke hold. Scott looks up to Ramona. SCOTT You really went out with this guy? RAMONA Yeah, in the seventh grade. The Lighting Guy SWINGS the spotlight to Ramona in the balcony. We see a sketchy childlike ANIMATED FLASHBACK. RAMONA (CONT'D) It was football season and for some reason, all the little jocks wanted me. Matthew was the only non-white, non-jock boy in school, probably in the entire state, so we joined forces and took 'em all out. We were one hell of a team. Nothing could beat Matthew's mystical powers. Nothing but pre-teen capriciousness. We only kissed once. After a week and a half, I told him to hit the showers.

MATTHEW PATEL (CONT'D) If you want to fight me, you're not the brightest. You won't know what's hit you in the slightest. Patel levitates into the air. Four hot girls in skirts with fangs and bat-wings appear in the air around him. MATTHEW PATEL (CONT'D) Me and my fireballs and my Demon Hipster Chicks, I'm talking the talk because I know I'm slick. Patel and the Demon Hipster Chicks shoot FIREBALLS at Scott. He flips back onto the stage, narrowly dodging the attack. MATTHEW PATEL (CONT'D) Fireball Girls! Take this sucker down. The Demon Hipster Chicks unleash more fireballs. Scott dodges. The house drum kit is trashed behind him. MATTHEW PATEL (CONT'D) Let us show him what we're all about. Scott hits the ground, dodging a third wave of fireballs. They explode Crash and the Boys in the wings. SCOTT That doesn't even rhyme. Scott rolls across the stage, GRABS one of Kim's CYMBALS and throws it Captain America style. It hits Patel square in the eyes. POOF, the Demon Hipster Chicks vanish. MATTHEW PATEL This is impossible, how can it be?! Scott leaps into the air. Patel opens his eyes just in time to see Scott Pilgrim's FIST racing towards his face. SCOTT Open your eyes. Maybe you'll see. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 42A. 47 CONTINUED: (6) 47 K.O! Scott punches Patel. He explodes into COINS. They clatter to the stage floor. Scott lands and picks them up. SCOTT Sweet.

SCOTT Nooo. I just love me some walking. Putting one leg in front of the other. RAMONA You seem a little...heightened. SCOTT Yeah. I don't know. I just, when I'm with you I feel like I'm on drugs. Not that I do drugs, unless you do, in which case I do drugs all the time, every drug, but...you make me feel...I don't know. Things seem a little brighter around you or something. Ramona and Scott finally reach the top of the stairs and NIGHT TURNS TO DAY, as if crossing a magical line. RAMONA What is this place? SCOTT A totally awesome castle. They're shooting this movie up here. Ramona looks up at the looming CASA LOMA, a castle surrounded by big, bright movie set lights. RAMONA Who's in it? SCOTT Winifred Hailey and some actor guy.

FIRST A.D. Mr. Lee is travelling! RAMONA Mr. Lee? WALLACE Lucas Lee. RAMONA Ooh. SCOTT Ooh? The UNIVERSAL STUDIOS FANFARE announces LUCAS LEE as he exits his trailer, smoking a cigarette (blacked out). He skates towards the set, doing kickflips. The spectators go 'ooooh'�.

SCOTT ...you dated a FAMOUS guy?! RAMONA In 9th grade. We had drama. Actually, it might have been math. I just remember there being lots of drama. LUCAS LEE HEY!!! Lucas Lee points at Scott, who remains oblivious. RAMONA He just followed me around. He was a little snot nosed brat. SCOTT He had snot? In his nose? But he's famous! LUCAS LEE HEY!!!

I'm not done- Scott spins Lucas around, only to find an identical STAND IN! LUCAS LEE (O.S.) Looks like you're seeing double. Scott turns to see the real Lucas, smirking on the sidelines. POW! The identical Stand In punches Scott to the ground. LUCAS LEE He's good, right? Sometimes I let him do wide shots if I feel like getting blazed back in my winnie. Scott stands to fight the double. Suddenly, COUNTLESS STUNTMEN fan out behind the STAND IN, all identically dressed, all carrying skateboards and ready to rumble. LUCAS LEE I'm nothing without my stunt team. The Stuntmen ATTACK Scott Pilgrim with a howl. Scott PUNCHES through a couple of the boards, Tae Kwon Doe style. WALLACE Ask them how it feels to always get his sloppy seconds! SCOTT How does it feel to- KROW! Scott takes a skateboard to the face, followed by a barrage of crippling skateboard blows to his knees and ribs. LUCAS LEE I'm gonna get coffee.

SCOTT You're needed back on set. Scott CHARGES Lucas Lee and leaps into a FLYING KICK. Lucas GRABS his foot and hurls him through the backdrop. RRRIP! Scott lands in a CRUMP, framed through the torn skyline. Lucas stomps over to him, preparing for the deathblow. LUCAS LEE Prepare... prepare to feel the wrath of the League of Evil Exes! SCOTT The League of Evil Axes? LUCAS LEE You really don't know about the "The League"? SCOTT Ummm... LUCAS LEE Seven evil exes? Coming to kill you? Controlling the future of Ramona's love life?

SCOTT So you can sell them, but can you do a thingy on that rail? Scott points to the LONG HANDRAIL on the stairs. LUCAS LEE It's called a grind, bro. SCOTT So can you do a grind thingy now? LUCAS LEE Are you serious? There's like 200 steps and the rails are garbage. SCOTT Hey, if it's too hardcore... LUCAS LEE You really think you can goad me into doing a trick like that? SCOTT There's girls watching. LUCAS LEE Somebody get me my board. Wallace taps Lucas' shoulder and hands him his skateboard. WALLACE Hi. Big fan. LUCAS LEE Why wouldn't you be? CLACK! Lucas GOES FOR IT, a perfect ollie onto the rail. Scott and Wallace watch as Lucas disappears from sight, sparking down the ENDLESS RAIL...HSSSSSSSSSSSSSS...

Break out the L-word. SCOTT Lesbian? WALLACE The other L-word. SCOTT Lesbians? WALLACE Okay, it's 'olove'�. I wasn't trying to trick you or anything. Look, if she's really the girl of your dreams, then you have to let her know. You have to overcome any and all obstacles that lie in your path. You have the spirit of a warrior, Scott. You can do it! Be with her! It's your destiny! (BEAT) Plus, I need you to move out. Scott's face falls, completely shocked at this bombshell. SCOTT What? Why? Are you moving in with Other Scott or Jimmy or someone?

And by the way, I can't believe you fucking asked Ramona out after I specifically told you not to fucking do that!

How about you give me the Cliff Notes on how and why you ended up dating this a-hole? RAMONA Is that really important right now? SCOTT If there's a key element in his backstory that can help me out in a critical moment of not dying? Yes. A brief, scrappy ANIMATED FLASHBACK of Young Todd and Ramona. RAMONA (V.O.) I was only dating Lucas until the minute Todd walked by. I guess that's not very nice, but I used to be kind of...like that. Young Ramona shoves Young Lucas down a hill and starts making out with Young Todd. RAMONA (V.O.) We hated everyone. We wrecked stuff. Nobody cared. Young Ramona and Young Todd wreck stuff. Nobody cares. RAMONA (V.O.) He punched a hole in the moon for me. It was pretty crazy. Young Todd punches a hole in the moon. It's pretty crazy. RAMONA (V.O.) A week and a half later, he told me his Dad was sending him to the Vegan Academy, so I dumped him. Does that help you at all? The FLASHBACK ends. Scott can only fixate on one aspect. SCOTT Have you dumped everyone you've ever been with? You've never been the dumpee? Ramona shrugs. RAMONA Look, I've dabbled with being a bitch. It's part of the reason I moved here. I was really hoping to put it all behind me. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 80. 77 CONTINUED: (7) 77 Todd appears behind Ramona - ready for another round. TODD INGRAM We have unfinished business, I and he! Scott stands up - sort of ready for another round. SCOTT He and me. TODD INGRAM Don't you talk to me about grammar! SCOTT I...dislike you. Capiche? Understand? TODD INGRAM Tell it to the cleaning lady on Monday. SCOTT What? TODD INGRAM Because you'll be dust by Monday. SCOTT Um... TODD INGRAM Because I'll be pulverizing you in two seconds. And the cleaning lady...cleans up...dust. She dusts. SCOTT Sorry, so what's on Monday? TODD INGRAM Cos it's Friday now and she has weekends off, so...Monday. Right? ENVY Basically, you can't win this fight and you'll have to give up on this girl, '~cos Todd is going to kill you. SCOTT You used to be so...nice! Scott CHARGES at Todd, who PSYCH-THROWS him back into the club. We hear a distant CRUMP. Stills calls through the hole. STEPHEN STILLS Uh, we're going to Pizza Pizza for a slice, call us when you're done. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 80A. 77 CONTINUED: (8) 77 ENVY Oh, he'll be done real soon.

Suddenly, the bass-line from FINAL FANTASY 2 rumbles through the walls. Todd calls to a roadie. TODD INGRAM Get me my bass. The good one. 78 INT. LEE'S PALACE - CONTINUOUS 78 SCOTT stands in an elephant's graveyard of plastic cups and bottles, picking the hell out of his bass, amp pegged to 10. TODD INGRAM levitates, floating towards Scott with his bass. TODD INGRAM You're going down. Vegan Style! Todd lands in front of Scott. BASS OFF! PICKS STRIKE STRING! Todd easily out-basses Scott, shredding him into oblivion. The enormous reverb LAUNCHES club debris towards Scott. SCOTT The reverb is hurting my soul!!! Scott slides across the floor and slams right into the wall. Todd LEVITATES, fauxhawk rising. He hovers next to him. TODD INGRAM That's right, Pilgrim. I actually know how to play bass. Todd DETUNES his bass and delivers a death note that BLOWS Scott right through the stage wall. 79 INT. LEE'S PALACE, RATTY BACKSTAGE AREA- CONTINUOUS 79 Scott crashes into a backstage food table. Todd floats toward him, savoring the kill. Envy appears beside him with a smirk. TODD INGRAM I can read your thoughts. Your bass hand is badly injured. You're through. Scott turns around on his knees, cringing, holding a cup of MILKY LOOKING COFFEE in either hand as a peace offering. SCOTT What say we drink to my memory? Fair trade blend with soymilk?

I can see in your mind's eye that you poured Half & Half into one of these coffees in an attempt to make me break vegan edge. I'll take the one with soy. Thanks, tool. Todd floats to the ground, takes one of the cups and drinks. SCOTT Actually, I poured soy in this cup, but thought real hard about pouring it in that one. You know, in my mind's eye or whatever. TODD INGRAM What are you talking about? SCOTT You just drank Half & Half. TWO TRENDY POLICE TYPES BUST IN THROUGH THE WALL, making two more holes and pointing their fingers like deadly weapons. VEGAN POLICE OFFICERS Freeze! Vegan Police! VEGAN POLICE OFFICER #1 Todd Ingram, you're under arrest for veganity violation code number 827, imbibement of Half & Half! TODD INGRAM That's bullroar!

TODD INGRAM NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Scott rises into a stance to deliver his killer line... SCOTT You once were a vegone, but now you will be gone! TODD INGRAM Vegone? Scott HEADBUTTS TODD, exploding him! POOM! Scott dusts himself off as COINS rain down. Envy stares, jaw ajar. SCOTT Uh, sorry I guess. ENVY Sorry? You just headbutted my boyfriend so hard he burst. SCOTT You kicked my heart in the ass. So I guess we're even. Natalie. ENVY No one calls me that anymore. SCOTT Maybe they should. Now let's get out of here.

SCOTT Do I look like I'm not okay? Scott does not look okay. Stills coughs. STEPHEN STILLS We're still going to the after show right? KIM PINE I'm not sure it's gonna be much of a party, I think a third of the band just went 'opoom'�. STEPHEN STILLS Cool bands never go to their own after parties. It's just the desperate people trying to rub elbows with label guys. KIM PINE Then why would we...oh. STEPHEN STILLS Neil, you down? (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 85. 80 CONTINUED: 80 Neil is at the counter with a catatonic Knives. He shrugs. STEPHEN STILLS (CONT'D) Scott? You're in right? RAMONA Do you want to go?

OTHER SCOTT Ooh. 81 EXT. AFTER PARTY - NIGHT 81 The whole gang trudge to the after party. Scott limps a bit, lagging behind. Ramona falls back with him.

SCOTT But not...later? RAMONA Scott, I don't have all the answers. I'd just like to live in the moment if I can. SCOTT Yeah, I'd just like to live. Scott and Ramona enter a big, fartsy, artsy WAREHOUSE. 82 INT. AFTER PARTY - CONTINUOUS 82 RAMONA Okay, I know Todd was bad news. But are you saying Envy wasn't? We all have baggage. SCOTT My baggage doesn't try and kill me every five minutes. What did you do to your ex-boyfriends to make them so insane? RAMONA Exes. SCOTT WHATEVER- (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 87. 82 CONTINUED: 82 RAMONA No break up is painless. Someone always gets hurt. What about you and that girl Knives? SCOTT Knives? RAMONA Who broke up with who? SCOTT I believe...I broke up with her. RAMONA And was she cool with that? SCOTT Knives is with Young Neil now, she's totally cool with it. They pass Knives and Young Neil. She seemingly has no interest in her date and simply stares at Scott lovingly. RAMONA You sure about that? SCOTT Yeah. She's very mature for her age. It was a very healthy break up. We're all peaches and gravy. We hear an offscreen distant '~nooooo' from Knives. RAMONA And what about you and Kim? They pass Kim. She's also staring at Scott. Not lovingly. SCOTT Me and Kim? I can barely remember. Why, is it important? RAMONA Hey, you want to know everything about my past, dude. SCOTT It was just...yeah. I don't know. It was high school. She had freckles. It was cool, I guess. RAMONA That's it? SCOTT Yeah, it kind of ended. We changed. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 88. 82 CONTINUED: (2) 82 Scott and Ramona have reached the bar at the party. RAMONA That's really the whole story? SCOTT OKAY! I had to fight a dude to get with her! I fought a crazy eighty foot tall purple suited dude! And I had to fight 96 guys to get to him, too! He was flying and shooting lightning bolts from his eyes! He was totally awesome and I kicked him so far he saw the curvature of the earth! Does that make you feel any better? RAMONA Well now you are being a total ass. Welcome to the club. In the back glass of the bar, Scott sees his reflection: fringed hair, wicked glare. He catches himself. SCOTT Sorry. I'm not usually like this. RAMONA Hey, don't worry. I don't know what I'm like anymore. SCOTT I guess this whole ex-boyfriends thing is really messing with my head. RAMONA Exes. SCOTT Why do you keep saying- PAF! A foot appears out of nowhere and KICKS Scott in the head, sending him flying across the dance floor. Scott looks up at his opponent, the MYSTERY ATTACKER! SCOTT (CONT'D) Girl from earlier?

SCOTT You had a sexy phase? RAMONA I didn't think it would count! It meant nothing. ROXY It meant nothing??? RAMONA I was just a little bi-curious. ROXY Well honey, I'm a little bi-furious! Roxy throws a SCORPION KICK at Scott's face. Ramona CATCHES her foot mid-air. Roxy flips out of the hold. RAMONA Do that again and I will end you. ROXY Back off hasbian. If Gideon can't have you, no one can. The League hath spoken. The girls square off, clearing the busy dance floor. RAMONA Then Gideon best get his pretentious ass up here, '~cos I'm about to kick yours out of the Great White North. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 90. 82 CONTINUED: (4) 82 ROXY You unbelievable bitch.

SCOTT I mean, this is live? WALLACE Oh yeah. KICK HER IN THE BALLS, RAMONA! With blinding speed, Roxy slips her belt off and WHIPS A RAZOR SHARP FLYING GUILLOTINE BELT BUCKLE at Ramona! Ramona CARTWHEELS as the buckle sails between her legs and SMASHES into a DISCO BALL. Mirrored shards fly everywhere. PAF! Roxy vanishes as Ramona SWINGS the hammer at her. It smashes a speaker. Sound on one side of the room cuts out. Ramona turns around just in time to see Roxy's deadly belt SAILING towards her. She BLOCKS with the hammer. The belt wraps around it. Roxy HURLS the hammer out the window. ROXY I'm sending you back to Gideon in a thousand pieces, you slag. Ramona springs off of various pieces of furniture, LEAPING towards Roxy and PUNCHING HER IN THE FACE. Roxy REELS and SLAMS into the wall, leaving a dent in it. RAMONA I'd rather be dead than go back. He's a creep, you're a bitch and you all deserve each other. ROXY Give it a rest, Ramona. This is a League game. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 90A. 82 CONTINUED: (5) 82 RAMONA Meaning?

ROXY Fight your own battles, lazy ass! PAF! Roxy disappears then REAPPEARS between Scott and Ramona, kicking them apart with the splits. Roxy then KICKS Scott into the ceiling. He lands HARD on the floor. ROXY (CONT'D) Every Pilgrim reaches the end of his journey. Some sooner than others. Roxy lifts her leg over her head, preparing to drop her boot of DEATH on Scott's head. She grins at Ramona. ROXY (CONT'D) Your B.F's about to get F'd in the B! RAMONA Her weak point's the back of her knees! SCOTT What? How does that work? RAMONA Whenever we were making out, I- SCOTT Okay. As Roxy's leg descends, Scott reaches up with one finger and lightly TICKLES the back of Roxy's knee. GRAPHIC: 'oTICKLE TICKLE!'� ROXY Oh... Roxy falls, still in the splits, throbbing with orgasmic meltdown. Scott watches as Roxy giggles between spasms. ROXY (CONT'D) You'll...never...be able to do this to herrrrrrrrrrr! Roxy screams in ecstasy before EXPLODING into COINS. A spent Scott is left standing in the middle of the room.

SCOTT Two gin and tonics please. RAMONA I thought you didn't drink. SCOTT Only on special occasions. Why? Did you want one? Scott swigs down his drink. Ramona tries to lighten things. RAMONA I guess we really don't know that much about each other do we? Scott seems immediately drunk. SCOTT Maybe you could just give me a list of all your exes so at least I know who's going to beat my ass into the ground next. RAMONA Oh, like a handy little laminate or something? Let me see if I can find one. (looks through bag) Maybe we could exchange our information. Scott has already downed his second drink. SCOTT Just out of sheer curiosity and concern for my mortal well-being, is there anyone at this party you haven't slept with? EVERY GUY AND GIRL AT THE PARTY HEY! Ramona stops. Looks hurt. She touches her hair. RAMONA I really think we should split. SCOTT As in '~get out of here'? Or as in '~split split'? (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 92A. 82 CONTINUED: (9) 82 RAMONA I'd hope you could figure that out. Or did you miss the part where I saved your ass?

SCOTT (holds up 2 fingers) I've had like one drink. RAMONA Well I'm sorry I cared. I don't enjoy all this Scott. In fact I'm sick of it. I thought you might be more understanding. SCOTT I JUST- RAMONA You're just another evil ex- boyfriend waiting to happen. Ramona walks off and loudly announces. RAMONA (CONT'D) And yes, there is someone at this party I haven't slept with. You. Ramona leaves. Another crescendo of gossip echoes around the room. Scott's friends gather round in a pity party. But then - Ramona returns, handing Scott a LAMINATED LIST. RAMONA (CONT'D) P.S. Here's your stupid list. Ramona exits proper. Scott looks at the list. It reads- 'oPATEL, LEE, INGRAM, RICHTER, KATAYANAGI TWINS, GIDEON...'� SCOTT Who the hell are the Katayanagi Twins? STEPHEN STILLS You don't know? 83 INT. STEPHEN STILLS' HOUSE - NIGHT 83 Stills flips to hand drawn sketches of THE KATAYANAGIS, identical Asian twins dressed like pretentious New Wave fops.

STEPHEN STILLS Good. You know how I feel about girls cockblocking the rock. SCOTT Good. I play better in a bad mood. STEPHEN STILLS If it's gonna be an issue though, Young Neil can fill in for you. SCOTT It's not an issue. You know bands, I know battles. We got it covered. STEPHEN STILLS Well, we'd understand if you didn't want to take part. SCOTT Not only do I want to take part.

On the other, SEX BOB-OMB, with their dinky LAME BRAND amps behind them. SCOTT Okay. My bad. KIM PINE Your bad is saying my bad. Sex Bob-Omb stare up at the Katayanagi amps, sweating behind their instruments. Stills looks into the audience positioned between the bands: a legion of identical INDIE TEENS. STEPHEN STILLS We shouldn't even be here. We shouldn't even be here. Stills tries to run. Scott grabs him and pulls him back. SCOTT Come on man! I put aside my problems for the music. If I can do that, we can do anything. KIM PINE Did you speak to Ramona then? SCOTT What? No. I haven't seen her since the other night. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 95A. 85 CONTINUED: 85 KIM PINE Oh.

Not that I care...but you should talk to her before she's gone... SCOTT THANKS KI- KIM PINE And I really don't care. Scott nods at Kim's advice. He looks back to the crowd to find the MYSTERY GEEK staring right at him. Then- Disorienting LIGHTS and LASERS flash on the opposite stage. A wall of FEEDBACK builds...THE KATAYANAGI TWINS appear, sliding onstage behind their respective keyboard stands. KYLE KATAYANAGI, 23, is very serious and Japanese. KEN KATAYANAGI, 23, is serious and very Japanese. Scott, Stephen Stills and Kim share a nervous look. STEPHEN STILLS Okay gang. Can we do this? I mean, we can do this. Right? KIM PINE Right. STEPHEN STILLS Scott? Scott is distracted again by the Mystery Geek staring at him. KIM PINE Scott! Kyle Katayanagi hits a SINGLE NOTE on the keyboard, blasting an enormous wave of sound at Sex Bob-Omb. It's so loud that it shakes the foundations and rips the lighting rig from the ceiling, leaving a huge hole in the roof. The crowd cheers. AUDIENCE DUDE (O.S.) They brought the house down. Now an open air venue, SNOW falls onto the stage. An earth shaking BASS NOTE blows the dust off Sex Bob-Omb... Scott and Stills get into battle position. Scott screams!

Ken turns their amps up to the Japanese character for 'o11'�. Their waveforms transform the swirling snow into a TWO HEADED WHITE DRAGON! Katayanagi SLAM their Moogs. Heavy weirdness EXPLODES from the amps! The Dragon blows a BLAST of snowy fire that BLOWS SEX BOB-OMB OFF THE STAGE. The crowd ERUPTS into cheers. Scott, Kim and Stills lie in a heap under their instruments. STEPHEN STILLS Let's break up now and get it over with. We screwed the pooch in front of Gideon Graves. We're done. SCOTT Gideon...is here? Where? Stills points to the 'oMystery Geek'�, who smirks and whispers in Ramona's ear. This is GIDEON GRAVES, 37, ASSHOLE. SCOTT That's Gideon? Scott's eyes reflect Ramona's hair and turn GREEN. He struggles to his feet. The crowd slowly stops clapping as Scott pulls Stills to his feet, then helps Kim up. SCOTT Alright. Let's do this! Kim, inspired by Scott's new hardcore attitude, comes in heavy on the kick drum. BOOM-BOOM-BOOM-BOOM! Heads nod in time as Sex Bob-Omb ROCK OUT! Their waveforms transform a mass of snow into a GREEN EYED YETI! The Katayanagis fight back with their future sounds and their Sonic Dragon stalks towards Sex Bob-Omb, slinking on perfect beat with the Katayanagis' spooky music. The Yeti and the Dragons CLASH at center stage, fighting in time to the music! Scott and Stills bring their pick hands down like fierce PUNCHES. The Yeti brings it's fists down on The Dragon.

'o+999 ROCKING'� KIM PINE That...was epic. The crowd goes bazooky. A DISEMBODIED SCOTT HEAD appears, hovering next to Scott. Scott looks for Ramona in the crowd, but she and Gideon are gone. Scott hands his bass to Young Neil. STEPHEN STILLS Scott. What are you doing? SCOTT Getting a life. Scott swipes the SCOTT HEAD and jumps into the still- applauding crowd. He can't find Ramona, but comes upon KNIVES standing alone in her homemade Sex Bob-Omb T-shirt. KNIVES CHAU I just came to see the show. I'm not even stalking you. Knives's unusally composed demeanor gives Scott pause. SCOTT You seem... different. Knives shrugs, different. KNIVES CHAU I feel like I know stuff now. Scott and Knives lock eyes. Scott suddenly spots a flash of GREEN HAIR exiting the building. SCOTT Ramona... Scott follows. Knives watches him go, eyes narrowing. 86 EXT.

RAMONA Yeah, I have something to- (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 98A. 86 CONTINUED: 86 SCOTT (RUSHED) Great. Listen, I know you just play mysterious and aloof to avoid getting hurt. I know you have reasons for not wanting to talk about your past. And I want you to know, I don't care about any of that stuff. Why? Because I'm in lesbians with you. RAMONA What? SCOTT I really, really mean it. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 99. 86 CONTINUED: (2) 86 RAMONA Oh. Okay. SCOTT What did you want to tell me? RAMONA That we have to break up. SCOTT What? RAMONA Yeah...it's not going to work out. SCOTT Oh okay... A sleek black '~61 Lincoln Continental pulls up behind. RAMONA It's Gideon. I just...I can't help myself around him. VOICE (O.S.) That's the bad news. GIDEON GRAVES appears behind Scott with Stills and Kim in tow. The Lincoln parks. A driver opens the passenger door. GIDEON GRAVES The good news, Scottie, is I'm officially loving the Sex Bombs. SCOTT Bob-omb. GIDEON GRAVES Three piece rock outfit with a semi- attractive female drummer? Music to my earholes. Scott glowers. Ramona looks at the floor. Stills is ga-ga. TEXT: An arrow points to Stills' crotch, captioned 'oPEE'�. GIDEON GRAVES You know, I'm not even going to wait to see how you guys do in the final. I'm signing you right now for a three album deal. Gideon produces a CONTRACT and clicks a pen.

Stills has picked up the contract and is furiously signing it using Scott's back. Kim shrugs and signs it too, before trying to hand it back to Scott. SCOTT Nuh-uh. I can't be part of the band with this douche-in-charge. GIDEON GRAVES Scottie, buddy, can I just say, keep your emotions in check. Don't let what's past screw up your future. Scott watches Ramona get into the Continental. She rolls the mirrored window up so Scott stares at his own reflection. STEPHEN STILLS The people need to hear us, Scott. SCOTT Then you're going to need to find someone else to play bass. A cough. A meek Young Neil slides into view, bass in hand. GIDEON Looks like we're all set. Young Neil signs the contract. There are hand shakes all round. Gideon turns to Scott and pats him on the shoulder. GIDEON Oh and Scott, we should really be thanking each other. I mean, if it wasn't for me, you would have never been with Ramona, but if it wasn't for you, she wouldn't be back with me. So I guess it all shakes out. Gideon walks around to the driver side of the Lincoln. GIDEON And hey, the whole League of Evil Exes thing? I was in a dark place when I put that together. Forgiven? Gideon disappears into the Lincoln and drives off and Sex Bob-Omb drift away. Scott stands alone. He slaps his head- SCOTT I said '~lesbians'! INTEGRATED FINAL 100A. 87 INT.

Stacey stands to go, gives Scott a hug. STACEY Time heals all wounds, little brother. Maybe next time let's not date the girl with eleven evil ex- boyfriends. SCOTT Seven. STACEY Oh.

WALLACE Maybe you can move in with Ramona. Scott stares deep into his cocoa and shakes his head. SCOTT She's with Gideon. WALLACE Ah. That sucks. But you know, it's probably just because he's better than you. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 102A. 89 CONTINUED: 89 Scott nods. WALLACE He'll certainly have better hair. Scott nods. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 103. 89 CONTINUED: (2) 89 WALLACE Either way, I think this fight is over. Scott nods. WALLACE You can sleep on the floor until you get somewhere else to stay. I got you muffs and blinkers in case this might happen. Wallace produces earmuffs and a sleep mask. SCOTT Thanks. RINGY RING. Scott stares at the phone. Some guy picks up. SOME GUY It's for Scott. SCOTT (TAKES PHONE) Hello? GIDEON GRAVES (O.S.) Hey, pal. Just wanted to say I feel terrible about earlier. I don't want any hard feelings, so I figured why not be the bigger man and give you a call. SCOTT Is Ramona with you? 90 INT. GIDEON'S LAIR - CONTINUOUS 90 Gideon appears to sit on some kind of throne. He calls off. GIDEON GRAVES I don't know. Are you with me? RAMONA (O.S.) Yeah.

(CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 104. 91 CONTINUED: 91 GIDEON GRAVES (O.S) Sure you did. Well as you know, I'm opening a new Chaos Theatre in Toronto and The Sex Bobs are playing our grand opening tonight, and it would feel really weird for all of us if you weren't there. They just did a sound check and the acoustics in here are amazing. SCOTT (GRIM) Yeah. Maybe I'll see you there. GIDEON GRAVES (O.S.) I hope so, amigo. I don't want anymore bad blood between ex's. What do you say? SCOTT Mm. GIDEON GRAVES Okay laters. Click. WALLACE (O.S.) What a perfect asshole. Scott turns, alarmed. REVEAL Wallace on the other cordless. WALLACE Forget what I said earlier. Finish him. 92 EXT. STREETS OF TORONTO - NIGHT 92 Snow blows around a steely eyed Scott as he stomps towards a group of desolate WAREHOUSES near the water. A lone HIPSTER KID smokes a cigarette, leaning against a warehouse wall. HIPSTER KID Password? Scott shrugs. SCOTT Whatever. HIPSTER KID Cool. The Hipster Kid waves Scott in. INTEGRATED FINAL 104A. 93 INT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT 93 The warehouse is empty. Scott follows the sound of music to a GATED ELEVATOR. Two Hipster Kids guard the elevator. HIPSTER KID Second password? Scott gives the slightest shrug. HIPSTER KID Cool. Scott steps into the elevator. So far so good. INTEGRATED FINAL 105. 94 INT. CHAOS THEATRE - CONTINUOUS 94 Scott exits the elevator and steps into GIDEON'S UNDERGROUND LAIR OF COOL SHIT...the CHAOS THEATRE. All HIPSTER KIDS have gathered in one spot of ultimate snobbery. They are legion, wearing identical outfits; Chuck Taylors, skinny jeans. COMEAU holds court among them. COMEAU Yeah, their first album is so much better than their first album. Scott pushes through the idiot hordes. SEX BOB-OMB are playing onstage, now using SWEET BRAND amps, YOUNG NEIL on bass. Stills sees Scott walking by as they finish a song. STEPHEN STILLS Scott! Scott pauses, looking up at his former bandmates. STEPHEN STILLS (CONT'D) Let it go. Don't give him the satisfaction. SCOTT What if I want the satisfaction? STEPHEN STILLS Well, then you're doomed. GIDEON GRAVES (O.S.) Scott Pilgrim! Scott turns to see GIDEON sitting on a throne of cool atop a BLACK VELVET VIP PYRAMID. Ramona kneels at his side. GIDEON GRAVES Hey buddy, welcome to the Chaos Theatre. Somebody get this man a drink! Coke Zero right? A COCKTAIL WAITRESS with a fringe appears with a Coke Zero. Scott takes the beverage and THROWS THE CUP TO THE FLOOR! SCOTT I'm not here to drink. GIDEON GRAVES I got no beef with you. SCOTT What if I have a beef...with you? (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 106. 94 CONTINUED: 94 GIDEON GRAVES Are you still mad about that whole thing with the Guild? SCOTT You mean 'oThe League'�? GIDEON Guild, League, whatever. It's ancient history. Gideon puts his arm around Ramona. SCOTT I'll show you how ancient of history it is. Scott gets into a fighting stance. Gideon loses his cool. GIDEON GRAVES No use crying over spilt Coke, buddy. The lady made her choice and we're all gonna have to move on. SCOTT Well I ain't moving...buddy. GIDEON GRAVES You want to fight me for her? SCOTT Was that not clear? (to Sex Bob-Omb) Was that not clear? Sex Bob-Omb shake their heads. Gideon stands up, flexes. GIDEON GRAVES Now why on earth do you want to do that? SCOTT Because, I'm in love with her. Ramona and Scott lock eyes. A new power comes over Scott. He reaches for the HEART DESIGN printed on his ratty vintage T- shirt and pulls a FLAMING BLUE SWORD from his own chest. NARRATOR (V.O.) Scott earned the power of love... Ramona looks away from Scott. Gideon smiles. GIDEON GRAVES I think this deserves a song. Kimberly? (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 107. 94 CONTINUED: (2) 94 Kim scratches her head with her middle finger before grudgingly launching into a number. KIM PINE We are Sex Bob-Omb, we are here to make money, and sell out and stuff. Kim clicks out a fast tempo. Sex Bob-Omb begin to ROCK OUT. A HORDE OF HIPSTER INDIE KIDS ATTACK SCOTT PILGRIM, ON BEAT. Scott swings at them with his FLAMING BLUE SWORD. He slashes at them to the beat, exploding each attacker into COINS. Scott then RUNS up the side of the pyramid towards Gideon. GIDEON GRAVES Ramona. My cane. Ramona hands Gideon a cane with G-MAN engraved on the handle. He unsheathes a SWORD that could not have fit in there. Scott and Gideon LEAP towards each other...Gideon descends like a vulture and SMASHES the sword out of Scott's hands. Scott hits the ground HARD, rolling to a stop. SCOTT Your club sucks, by the way. Gideon approaches, to administer a final blow. GIDEON If my cathedral of cutting edge taste holds no interest for your tragically Canadian sensibilities, then I shall grant you a swift exit from the premises. And fast entrance into HELLLLLLL. Gideon raises his sword. Then from above... KNIVES CHAU (O.S.) SCOOOOOOOOOTT!!! KNIVES CHAU sails into frame and KICKS the sword out of Gideon's hands. She lands awkwardly, tripping and falling down the side of the pyramid. Gideon chuckles. GIDEON GRAVES That is priceless. Scott looks to Knives, both concerned and amazed. She quickly recovers and POINTS a furious finger. 'oKNIVES CHAU, 18 YEARS OLD, FUN FACT: SCOTTAHOLIC'� (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 108. 94 CONTINUED: (3) 94 KNIVES CHAU You'll pay for what you did to him! GIDEON GRAVES Listen, Kung Pao Chicken, your old old boyfriend brought this all on himself. He was warned plenty of times. But did he listen? Did he f- KNIVES CHAU I'm not talking to you. I'm talking to HER! Angle on a confused RAMONA standing behind Gideon. RAMONA What? KNIVES CHAU YOU BROKE THE HEART THAT BROKE MINE! GET READY TO CHAU DOWN! Knives leaps up the pyramid toward a shocked Ramona! RAMONA You're kidding right? Knives pulls out KNIVES and charges! Ramona fights defensively, redirecting Knives' parries without harming her. GIDEON You can't say I don't know how to put on a show. GIDEON lashes out at Scott. He can barely block Gideon's tremendous blows, distracted by his duelling exes. RAMONA What the hell is your deal? KNIVES CHAU You stole him with your advanced American slut technology. DUAL DUEL! The fighters weave in and out of each other, throwing blocks and punches, KUNG FU STYLE. RAMONA I don't know what you're talking about, I didn't steal anyone. Scott lands a KICK to Gideon's chest, sending him flying off the edge of the pyramid. He then BLOCKS a punch from Knives to Ramona and spins her away, separating them. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 109. 94 CONTINUED: (4) 94 SCOTT Can we please stop all this fighting! Nobody stole anybody. Knives, I dated you and then I dated Ramona. Okay? (BEAT) I mean...maybe I kind of forgot to tell Knives right away, but... KNIVES CHAU Then you cheated on me, Scott! (EYES NARROWING) You cheated on both of us. Knives and Ramona both look at Scott, neither amused. RAMONA You cheated on me with Knives? SCOTT No! I cheated on Knives. With you. RAMONA Is there a difference? SCOTT You weren't wronged? Scott breaks into a flop sweat. SCOTT Right? Knives and Ramona stare at Scott. GIDEON (O.S.) Game over! STAB! A sword pierces Scott's chest from behind. GIDEON GRAVES Scottie. You can cheat on these ladies all you want, but you can't...cheat...death. Scott slides off Gideon's sword and falls to the ground... TEXT WITH ARROW POINTING TO SCOTT: 'oDEAD'� Everything goes white...SAND blows through frame...Scott's eyes blink open. He looks up into a BLINDING BLUE SKY... 95 EXT. THE DREAM DESERT - DAY 95 Scott sits up next to a lone cactus, rubbing his temples. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 109A. 95 CONTINUED: 95 SCOTT Ugh. Ramona appears out of nowhere; fainter than before. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 110. 95 CONTINUED: (2) 95 RAMONA I'm sorry. Dying probably sucks. SCOTT You know what sucks? Getting killed by THAT guy. Why him? RAMONA It's complicated. SCOTT Well, maybe now would be the time to get into it. Seeing as I'm about to die. RAMONA Alright... the truth is, it was me who was obsessed. I was crazy about him. But he ignored me. I was more alone when we were together than I ever was on my own. That's why I had to leave... and that's when he started paying attention. SCOTT So why go back? RAMONA I can't help myself around him, Scott. He just... has a way of getting into my head. SCOTT Well, that's legitimately disappointing. I really will leave you alone forever now... RAMONA No. I mean, he literally has a way of getting into my head. Ramona lifts her hair up on the back of her head, revealing a blinking CHIP implanted on her skull. SCOTT That is evil. RAMONA He's like that. Ramona covers the chip, self-consciously touching her hair. SCOTT So this kinda sucks for everybody, eh? (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 111. 95 CONTINUED: (3) 95 RAMONA I'm sorry it had to end this way. We had a good run, I guess. SCOTT You can't say I didn't try. I really fought for you back there. RAMONA Uh-huh. The winds blow harder, Ramona seeming to fade away. RAMONA But someone was fighting pretty hard for you back there. Scott's eyes go wide with epiphany, SCOTT Knives? RAMONA I wish I was ever as fanatically devoted to anything as that girl is to you. Ramona slowly dissolve away in the sand. SCOTT I feel like I learned something. Which would be great if I wasn't dead. Ramona is gone. Scott slumps to his knees. SCOTT So...so alone. DA-DING. The PILGRIM-HEAD appears and rotates around Scott. SCOTT Ahhhhhh... We FLASH BACK to Scott swiping the PILGRIM HEAD, then FAST FORWARD through the breakup with Ramona and Sex Bob-Omb. We hear Scott screaming throughout this magical restart. SCOTT ...AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA... 96 INT. WALLACE'S APARTMENT - NIGHT 96 We FAST FORWARD all the way to Wallace's apartment, as Scott enters. He flicks the light on. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 112. 96 CONTINUED: 96 SCOTT ...AAAAAAAAAHHH! I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAD TO SEE THAT AGAIN! SOME GUY (O.S.) Again? WALLACE (O.S.) Turn off the light! Scott flicks the light off. On PITCH BLACK... SCOTT Wallace, when my journey began, I was living in an ordinary world. Ramona skated through my dreams and it was like a call to adventure, a call I considered refusing. But my Mentor, that's you, told me if I want something bad enough I have to fight for it. So I did. There were tests, allies, enemies. I approached a deep cave and went through a crazy ordeal, during which I totally seized the sword. Sadly, I died. Then I resurrected! Now I realize what I should have been fighting for all along. But before I do that, I need to ask one final favor of you. WALLACE (O.S.) Sure thing, guy. SCOTT Could you put a robe on and hand me the phone? Wallace flicks on a bedside lamp, hands him the phone. SCOTT Toronto. Chaos Theatre. Gideon Graves. (BEAT) Tell him Scott Pilgrim is calling. GIDEON GRAVES (O.S.) Scott. I was just about to- SCOTT Hey, pal. I feel terrible about everything. I don't want any hard feelings, so I figure why not be the bigger man and give you a call. GIDEON GRAVES (O.S.) Um... (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 112A. 96 CONTINUED: (2) 96 SCOTT Sorry, what I meant to say is 'oI'm coming over to kill you'�.

COMEAU Yeah, their first album is so- Scott KNOCKS DOWN Comeau and looks to Sex Bob-Omb. STEPHEN STILLS Scott! Let it go. SCOTT Don't worry. I know what I'm doing. Stephen, the new line-up rocks. You guys sound better without me. Young Neil? You have learned well. From this point forward, you shall be known as 'oNeil'�. And Kim? Kim looks at Scott, deadpan as ever. SCOTT (CONT'D) Sorry about...everything. Kim shrugs. SCOTT (CONT'D) Sorry about me. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 113A. 99 CONTINUED: 99 Kim SMILES at Scott for the first time ever.

GIDEON GRAVES You want to fight me for her? Ramona and Scott lock eyes. A strange new power overcomes Scott, different than before. SCOTT No...I want to fight you for me. Scott reaches for the HEART DESIGN printed on his ratty T- shirt and pulls a FLAMING RED SWORD from his own chest. NARRATOR (V.O.) Scott earned the power of self-respect. SCOTT Kim? KIM PINE WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB, AND WE ARE HERE TO WATCH SCOTT PILGRIM KICK YOUR TEETH IN! Kim drives a hardcore beat. Sex Bob-Omb ROCK THE FUCK OUT. HIPSTERS ATTACK SCOTT PILGRIM to the BEAT. Scott swings his FLAMING RED SWORD, exploding each attacker into COINS. GIDEON GRAVES Ramona. My cane. Ramona hands Gideon his cane. He unsheathes his SWORD. Scott and Gideon RUN towards each other, LEAPING in the air. They pass in the air and Scott SLASHES. They land on opposite sides of the platform, backs to each other. SCOTT How's it going back there?

We hear a METALLIC KLONK. They square off, Ramona staggered, Knives pulling KNIVES. KNIVES CHAU Steal my boyfriend, taste my steel. Scott jumps between them, hands held out. SCOTT (CONT'D) ENOUGH! Knives tries to go around him. Scott GRABS her wrists. She kicks him in the face. KNIVES CHAU No, Scott! This fat ass hurt me and I will have my revenge! SCOTT No, Knives. I hurt you. I cheated on you. Knives steps back, stunned. KNIVES CHAU You cheated on me Scott? SCOTT I cheated on both of you. And I'm sorry. I was a different guy back then. Knives' frown melts. Scott turns to Ramona. SCOTT (CONT'D) And...you're not a fat ass. She didn't mean that. So, are we all good? Ramona rubs the back of her head. The CHIP no longer blinks. RAMONA Never felt better. GIDEON GRAVES (O.S.) Are we all done with the hugging and learning? I thought we had a fight going here. All turn to see GIDEON; bloodied, but still grinning, a lopsided slash across his face accentuating his smirk. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 115A. 99 CONTINUED: (5) 99 SCOTT Oh, you got a fight alright. Scott steps into a fighting stance. Knives joins him. GIDEON Ramona. Are you with me? Ramona looks to Gideon, then joins Scott and Knives and STRIKES A FIGHT POSE, the three of them ready to rumble. (CONTINUED) INTEGRATED FINAL 116. 99 CONTINUED: (6) 99 GIDEON (CONT'D) Wrong move, baby. Scott ATTACKS with his sword. Gideon BLOCKS, disarms Scott with one move, spins and BUTTS Scott in the face with the hilt of the sword. Scott teeters on the edge of the pyramid. Knives throws her knives. Gideon's lightning fast sword deflects them, SHING SHING! Gideon wheels towards Ramona, expecting her to move. She looks doubtful, takes a hesitant step towards him. He grins. GIDEON (CONT'D) Yeah. You're still my girl. Ramona steps up to Gideon and whispers in his ear. RAMONA Let's both be girls. Ramona knees Gideon in the balls. Gideon SWINGS his sword at Ramona. Knives whips off her scarf, uses it to wrap up Gideon's sword arm and disarms him. Scott and Knives punch Gideon in the face in a volley of FREEZE FRAMES. Knives KICKS Gideon in the stomach and Scott follows with a PUNCH IN THE NOSE, sending Gideon sliding across the floor. Gideon gets back to his feet via backflip. He shakes off the assault and grins. GIDEON You made me swallow me gum. That's going to be in my digestive tract for seven years! Gideon throws a series of Wushu moves that give him a POWER UP - his glasses glow, his HEALTH BAR increases. He makes an 'oX'� with his fingers and a draws a NEW POWER UP SWORD.

Ramona swings Gideon's VELVET ROPE, cancelling out Gideon's digital sword. Gideon SLAPS Ramona in the face and sends her painfully tumbling down the pyramid. She lands painfully at the bottom. Knives and Scott share a look. They Get up and circle Gideon. COMBO ATTACK! FREEZE FRAME PUNCHES: Knives kicks and Scott punches, sending Gideon back and forth like a pinball: KICK PUNCH KICK PUNCH KICK! Gideon's face smashes with each impact. Ramona rises to see Scott and Knives kicking ass. Scott slides Knives through Gideon's legs. From the floor, she kicks him in the back of the head, then upends him like a wheelbarrow and KICKS HIM IN THE FACE, sending him spinning. Gideon lands HARD on his knees, defeated. One lens of his glasses cracks. He looks up at the steely eyed Scott. GIDEON (CONT'D) Who do you think you are Pilgrim? You think you're better than me? I'll tell you what you are. A pain in my ass. You know how long it took to get all the evil exes' contact information so I could form this stupid league? Like two hours! Gideon starts to pixellate quite badly. Not long now... GIDEON (CONT'D) You're not cool enough for Ramona. You're zero. You're nothing. Me? I'm what's hip. I'm what's happening. I'm blowing up right now.

You can defeat me...but can you defeat...yourself? Scott peers into the glimmering lenses, spotting his EVIL MIRROR IMAGE staring back at him. The glasses dissolve and Scott whips around to face... KNIVES CHAU Negascott! NEGASCOTT walks towards Scott, Knives and Ramona. Fringed hair. Dark clothes. Evil face. Knives and Ramona flank Scott in a fighting stance. SCOTT No. This is something I have to face on my own. The girls reluctantly exit stage left as Scott walks forward to confront his dark side. Scott and Negascott face off. Both take a step forward... 100-103 OMITTED 100-103 104 EXT. THE WAREHOUSE - EVENING 104 Knives and Ramona huddle in the snow outside Chaos Theatre.

He looks totally freked. SCOTT Yeah? KNIVES CHAU I like it. Knives removes the hat from Scott's head, literally taking his guard down. Ramona sees this and smiles. SCOTT You do? Scott smiles, then realizes Ramona has gone. He turns to see her, pulling her hood up and walking into the darkness. Scott calls after her. Steps tentatively away from Knives. SCOTT Hey... Where are you going? Ramona, hoping to slip away, stops and turns back. RAMONA I dunno. I should probably disappear. SCOTT After all that? RAMONA It's hard, you know? I came here to get away, but the past keeps catching up. I'm tired of people getting hurt because of me. Ramona looks at Knives as she says this. SCOTT I think I understand. Snow begins to fall. Ramona straightens his parka tenderly. RAMONA I should tahnk you, though. SCOTT For what? RAMONA For being the nicest guy I ever dated.

KNIVES You earned it. You've been fighting for her all along. SCOTT But what about you? KNIVES (totally sweet and sad) I'll be fine. I'm too cool for you anyway. She grins and kisses his cheek. KNIVES There's someone out there for me. We hear a COUGH - Young Neil sidles into frame behind her. Guitar still in hand. We hear a 2ND COUGH - Nega Scott also sidles into frame. Knives doesn't look back, but urges Scott to- KNIVES Go talk to her. Before she's gone. Ramona walks on into the night alone, but then- SCOTT (O.S.) Hey... mind if I tag along?

SCOTT (HOPEFUL) I thought maybe we could... try again? Ramona smiles. She holds out her hand like in the park scene earlier. Scott takes it. We see the door with the star on it, standing right in the middle of the street, snow swirling around it. Scott and Ramona walk towards the door, sunrise coming up over Toronto, night magically turning to day, winter turning to spring. Over this magical transformation, we hear a lush rendition of '~Ramona' swelling and hear whispers of gossip over Toronto's cell phone airwaves. JULIE (V.O.) Oh my God, can I blow your mind? Scott Pilgrim totally threw down with Gideon Graves at the grand opening of Chaos Theater. Yeah, it was apparently awesome. STACEY (V.O.) Oh my God, it was a HUGE fight. I mean bananas. My little brother kicked a guy's head off. Literally. It was unbelievable. Someone seriously should have been filming it. Scott and Ramona walk through the door. Tilt up to the heavens and reveal the CONTINUE graphic in the stars. CONTINUE? 10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1...
