         (Ariana and Isaac are finishing off Starbucks drinks and he makes a final giant suck on the straw to get out the last drops)

ARIANA - No matter how you do that, there's still gonna be wall slide.

ISAAC -  What slide?

ARIANA -  Wall slide - the leftovers that drip down - always a little left on the walls, and given a few minutes, they slowly dribble into one last swallow....

            (She illustrates on her drink)

ARIANA -  Ahh!!  Most people do not get the most out of their drinks just like they don't get the most out of their life..... it's the wall slide that differentiates us!  And I'll bet that you have some kind of weird equation for what's left....which could never be accurate because there are way too many variables!

ISAAC -   Amazing!  You can take just about anything and make it......complicated.

ARIANA - Thank you....but I prefer to think of it as.....clarified.  Like butter....which, by the way clarified butter is called ghee.  Just in case that's on the Academic League list of weird things to know.

ISAAC -  (Thinking) It would be an interesting equation to figure out the amount of wall slide left over......you'd have to know what the original weight or volume of the drink was....

        (He stands and writes on the board)

ISAAC - And the elevation...which affects the temperature....which in turn affects the rate of slide of each individual drop....

          (Ariana watches and starts to laugh)

ARIANA -  And you think I'm amazing!

ISAAC -  But isn't this what you were talking about?

ARIANA -  (Laughing harder)  You can't capture wall slide in a bunch of mathematical spaghetti!

ISAAC -  (A little desperate)  But that's just it- you can!  An equation can be made for anything!

ARIANA -  You can make all the equations you want,  with all the xxxx's and y's - but it will never capture the truth!

         (She goes over and takes his head in her hands)

ARIANA -  This....is the truth.

          (As lights go down we hear the announcer)

ANNOUNCER -  Due to the intense competition, it is recommended that students refrain from interpersonal dating until the completion of the Academic League cycle......

          (They kiss, blackout)
