Olive:
[going over eye test pamphlets] Mom, Dwayne's got 20/20 vision!

Sheryl:
I bet he does.

Olive:
Now, let's see if you're colorblind.

[Olive opens the pamphlet]

Olive:
What's the letter in the circle?

[Dwayne looks confused]

Olive:
The letter in the circle?

Frank:
Can you see a letter, Dwayne?

Olive:
It's an A. See? Right there?

Frank:
It's bright green.

[Dwayne scribbles anxiously on his notepad - "What?"]

Frank:
Dwayne, I think you might be colorblind.

[pause, Dwayne holds up his notepad again - "What?"]

Frank:
You can't fly jets if you're colorblind.

[Dwayne immediately falls into an emotional breakdown; Frank, Olive and Sheryl all yell for Richard to pull over the vehicle; Dwayne springs from the stopped van into an empty field] FUCK! [he collapses, screaming and sobbing, breaking his nine-month vow of silence]

Sheryl:
What happened?

Frank:
He's colorblind. He can't fly.

Sheryl:
Oh, Jesus. Oh, no. (waits several moments, then approaches Dwayne) Dwayne? Dwayne, honey, I'm sorry. Dwayne, come on. We have to go.

Dwayne:
I'm not going.

Sheryl:
Dwayne.

Dwayne:
I said I'm not, okay? I don't care, I'm not getting on that bus again.

Sheryl:
Dwayne, for better or worse, we're your family.

Dwayne:
[stands up] No, you're not my family, okay? I don't want to be your family! I hate you fucking people! I hate you! (points to Sheryl, Richard, and Frank as he shouts) Divorce? Bankrupt? Suicide? You're fucking losers! You are losers!

Sheryl:
[whispers] Dwayne.

Dwayne:
[begins to cry again] No, please just leave me here, Mom. Okay? Please, please. Please just leave me here.
