Three college students base their class project around gossip and how fast it spreads, which soon spirals out of control.

Derrick: [answering professor] Gossip and news *are* the same thing, they've always been the same thing. People tell stories, that's what makes us human.
Professor Goodwin: Come on Webb, connect the dots. Be clear...
Derrick: People pass a bunch of stories around in a tribe and finally someone writes 'em down, and you have religion.
[first lines]
Jones: I'm a girl with a problem. It's not like I don't know better. But I seem to have gotten myself involved a very tempting situation.
Jones: Derrick, Travis has a gun.
Derrick: [with a gun to his head] Thanks for the news flash.
Derrick: You were thinking, Oh my God, I can't believe I got raped by my boyfriend AGAIN! Only you didn't know that both times it was me.
Jones: I wonder who she thinks you are.
Travis: I don't know, but I bet he gets laid a lot.
Derrick: What are they gonna say?
Travis: It's just words.
Jones: Well, will wonders never cease? Derrick Webb tells the truth.
[Travis drawing in a cafe]
Jones: Travis.
Travis: Jones, I was just um,
Jones: Travis we gotta tell someone, you and me, I cant do this on my own.
Travis: Maybe it'll just blow over
Jones: It's not gonna blow over, if we don't tell someone...
Travis: [hits the table angrily] You wanna turn on Derrick? After everything he's done for you? You are nothing without him, you know that? That's pathetic!
Derrick: Nice people don't live life. I don't wanna go through all my days being all sweet and polite and then realize, when I'm 80, that I'm just some nice dead person.
Travis: I'm just kind of having a little dialogue with gravity.
Derrick: My friend, the sea is wide; there are many fish. Many, many fish.
