Background Info: Even in the best of families things get tense, things go bad. Kids try to do their best and parents wish they had done better. A little misunderstanding can go a long way.

Kids are supposed to have a good time! I'm a kid! I'm not having any fun! No fun at all! (Turns away from parents, turns back) Mom, dad... I... I tried. I really did. I did my best but... Damn! Did it ever dawn on you two geniuses that I might not be the genius you thought I was! I am just an ordinary person. I am. And I'm okay with that. Are you? (Upset) Are you? (A pause) And that's all I want to be! Just me! Can I do that? Can I just come in this house and be with my family? Please! (A pause) I love you so much. I do. Could I just come in and... and not be put under a microscope. Like... like a little specimen. Damn! Because I tell you what! I can't take it anymore. I can't! I am about to burst wide open. Blow up into a million little pieces! And just.... just... disappear. (Turns and exits.)
