11 year old Oona Shaskan is a semi-emo girl who is fascinated with death. Her mother is dead, and her father runs a funeral parlor. She is also in love with her English teacher, and joins a poetry class over the summer just to impress him. Nonny Pirruccello, her best friend, is "allergic to everything", and sticks with Oona despite her hangups. When Oona's father hires Ms. Jenny, a makeup expert, in his funeral parlor, and begins to fall in love with her, Oona is outraged and does everything in her power to split them up.

(She gets another syringe out of a drawer.)
Lobster Nurse: Nonny, let me ask you a question. Does Oona ever tell you why she comes down here so much?
Nonny: Cause she's dying.
Lobster Nurse: Do you think she is?
Lobster Nurse: Why do you think she says that?
Nonny: Cause she gets scared of all those dead people in her house, and you know that saying, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em", well if she's one of them, she won't be as scared.
Lobster Nurse: You know what I think? I think Oona's very lucky to have a friend like you.
(She gives Nonny the other syringe.)

(Oona comes out of the office.)

Oona: What do you want it for anyway?
Nonny: 'Cause they're neat.

Miss. Jenny: I don't think that that roller coaster agreed with your bad stomach. You know Oona you have to watch what you eat here, I remember one time I went to a carnival with my cousins David and Frank, and they both ate hot dogs, and the next day they came down with nephritis.
Oona: Nephritis? It's a kidney disease, you don't get it from hot dogs.
Miss. Jenny: Well, I'm no doctor. All I know is, the next day they had really high fevers, and their faces got very fat. They baffled medical science, they were in a magazine.
(Oona and Harry give a "yeah right" look to Miss. Jenny.)
Miss. Jenny: They were! "Popular Mechanics", no "Popular Science". I don't know, popular.

(Oona's face changes to horror and she drops her fish.)
Oona: Oh my fish!
(Oona picks up her fish.)
Harry: We're having the wedding sometime near the end of the summer.
Oona (ignoring Harry's comment): You'll be okay little fish.
Miss. Jenny: Oona? Would you like us to get you another goldfish?
Oona (is angry): No! He's fine. (to fish): Fish are very resilient animals you know. Don't worry, I won't get another fish.
(Miss. Jenny and Harry's faces are worried. Oona didn't understand what they said.)

Harry: Oona, keep your hands on the wheel!
(Oona rams into Miss. Jenny's car at top speed. The car spins and Miss. Jenny screams in delight. Oona rams into her a few more times and this makes Miss. Jenny not pleased anymore. She isn't able to escape Oona.)

(They ride down a path in a forest. Nonny stops and Oona does the same.)

(He sits by the river bank. Oona walks over to him with an annoyed look.)
Oona: Get up!
Nonny: I'm tired of running away. Besides, we past this place two times already. We're not getting nowhere.
(Oona sits next to him.)
Nonny: Why are you running away?
Oona: My Dad gave Miss. Jenny a ring.
Nonny: Wow, was it a decoder ring?
Oona: You're such a retard, it was an engagement ring.
Nonny: They're getting married?
(Oona nods her head yes.)

(Scene: Tree at dusk)
(Oona and Nonny are sitting in the tree.)

Nonny: You can come to my house for dinner?
Oona: No, I'm hiding out.
Nonny: Okay, seeya.
(Nonny jumps out of the tree and goes home.)
(It's nighttime now and Oona is still in the tree. She looks around and gets down. The tree was in her front lawn. She goes inside. She waits for someone to be concerned about her gone. No one comes and all she can hear is the TV. She opens and closes the door again to try to attract attention. No luck. She goes into the living room to find Harry and her grandma asleep. She begins to go upstairs, upset.)
Oona (thoughts): In social studies we learned some people stole the Limburg baby right out of his house, I think i'll sleep with my window open tonight.
(It is now morning. Oona is screaming.)
Oona: Oh my God!
(She runs out of the bathroom and downstairs.)

Oona: Where's Daddy?
Miss. Jenny: Well he just left, what's wrong?
Oona: I'm hemorrhaging.
Miss. Jenny: What do you mean you're hemorrhaging?
Oona (in a weak and scared voice): I don't want, I don't need your help....
(She tries to run but Miss. Jenny stops her.)
Miss. Jenny: Oona, did this happen in the bathroom?
(Oona nods her head.)
Miss. Jenny: How old are you?
Oona: I'm 11 and a 1/2.
Miss. Jenny: It's okay, come on upstairs, we have to have a little talk.
(They go up to Oona's bedroom and sit on the bed.)
Oona: My Mommy and Daddy did that?
Miss. Jenny: It's actually a very beautiful thing, and look there wouldn't have been a Oona.
Oona: I think it should be outlawed.
Miss. Jenny: Believe me, some day, you'll feel differently.
(The doorbell rings.)
Oona: Oh, that's probably Nonny, I don't wanna see him. It's not fair. Nothing happens to boys.
(She goes downstairs and answers the door. Nonny is there.)
Nonny: Hi Oona, can you come out?
Oona: I dunno..
Nonny: Please, it's real hot, maybe we can go swimming?
(Oona is mad.)
(She pushes Nonny to the ground.)
Oona: Get outta here! And don't come back for 5 to 7 days!
(She goes back inside and closes the door. Nonny is left on the ground startled. A funeral is going on. Oona is in the living room reading a book and watching her grandma so she doesn't wander off. She puts down the book and gets up.)
Oona: Grandma, I'm going to the bathroom, I'll be right back.
(She kisses her grandma and leaves. As she is making her way, she hears giggling. She goes to the funeral room and sees Harry and Miss. Jenny giggling and kissing. Her grandma stands up from the living room and walks in. She takes a rose, looks at the man, and sings into the rose like a microphone.)
Oona's grandma (singing): It's quarter to three, there's no-one in the place, just you and me.
(Oona hears and she is worried. Miss. Jenny and Harry also here it and exit. Oona runs into the room where they were and closes the door.)
Oona's grandma (singing): So santa-macho, I got a little story you oughtta know, we're comin' my friend, to the end of a brief episode, so make it one for my baby and one more for the road.
Harry: I'm so sorry, it's all right ma, I'm very very sorry.
(He takes Oona's grandma out of the room.)
(Harry goes to the room where Oona is and bursts in. He grabs Oona by her shoulders.)
Harry: Now what were you thinking, huh? huh? It's your responsibility to watch her! Do you have any idea how upset those people are in there?
(Oona breaks from the grip and walks out the door. Miss. Jenny looks at Harry.)
(Scene: Weeping willow by the pier)
(Oona and Nonny are there sitting under it.)
Oona: Why do you think people want to get married?
Nonny: Well when you get older, you just have to.
Oona: I'm gonna marry Mr. Grouper.
Nonny: You can't marry a teacher, it's against the law.
Oona: It is not.
Nonny: Yes it is, cause then he'll give you all A's and it won't be fair.
Oona: Not true.
Oona (is uncertain): Have you ever kissed anyone?
Nonny: Like they do on TV?
Oona: Maybe we should, just to see what's the big deal.
Nonny: But, I don't know how.
Oona: Here, practice on your arm like this.
(She starts kissing her arm. Nonny copies her.)
Nonny: Like this?
(They kiss their arms some more.)
Oona: Okay, enough practice. Close your eyes.
Nonny: But then I won't be able to see anything.
(Oona raises her fist.)
Oona: Just do it.
Nonny: Okay, okay.
(Nonny closes his eyes.)
Oona: Okay on the count of 3. 1, 2, 2 and a 1/2, 3.
(Oona leans forward and kisses Nonny. They are both surprised and stay silent for a bit.)
Oona: Say something it's too quiet.
Nonny: Umm, Ummmmm
Oona (agitated): Just, hurry.
(Nonny stands up and puts his hand on his heart. He starts to speak.)
Nonny: On political agents to the flag of the United States of America,
(Oona stands up and joins him.)
Oona and Nonny: And to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, individual, with liberty and justice for all.
(They finish and look a bit uncomfortable.)
(Oona and Nonny are wheeling their bikes back down the road.)
Oona: You better not tell anyone.
Nonny: You better not either.
Oona: Well, let's spit on it.
(They both spit on their hands and shake them.)
Oona: Seeya tomorrow.
Nonny: Okay, seeya.
(Oona starts down the road.)
(Oona stops and turns around.)
Nonny: Would you think of me?
Oona: For what?
Nonny: Well if you don't get to marry Mr. Grouper.
(Oona smiles and gets on her bike.)
Oona: I guess.
(Oona rides down the street and Nonny watches and smiles at her.)
(Nonny walks through the forest. He is looking for Oona's mood ring that had fallen. He sees the beehive and kicks it and makes sure there is no danger. He searches in the leaves and finds it.)
(Unfornately, there were still bees in the beehive and they start to swarm. When Nonny realizes it, it's too late. They start to swarm him and sting him.)
Nonny: Ow, ahh, No!, Get away!
(Nonny's blue googles fall to the ground. Nonny is dead.)
