          (Ariana has asked Isaac to help her cheat and he is upset by this, but now they are about to leave for the decathalon, and he takes her aside)
ISAAC -  You asked me to think about something, something I didn't ever want to consider....

ARIANA-  And you've thought about it?

ISAAC -  Yes.  All night....I couldn't sleep....

ARIANA -  I'm sorry....

ISAAC -  Are you really?

            (She bristles, turns away)

ISAAC -  I have one last thing to share before we start.....

ARIANA -  From the look on your face, I imagine it has something to do with math....

ISAAC -  Geometry.

ARIANA -  As if there's a difference!

ISAAC -  You offered me something, and I.....was tempted to because......winning is tempting.

ARIANA - So I guess the answer is no....good guess, huh?

ISAAC -  Geometry is based on lines.....and a line is .....

ARIANA -..... straight....has no thickness and extends in both directions without end......see, I did learn something.....

ISAAC -  Infinity.  But have a line the sand......and it has....a beginning and an end, right where you put down your foot, where you make your stand....this is where I have to make my stand......and I'm not sorry....

          (She shakes her head, turns to leave, stops looks back)

ARIANA -  You missed a good chance, my friend.....see you at the winner's table.....

           (She exits, and he watches)

ISAAC -  But I am sorry.....for you.....

           (Lights down, end of scene)
