(We see Reed sitting on the hotel room bed. Cut to Reed putting clothing and papers into a backpack. Cut to Reed sitting on the opposite bed, talking on the phone.)

Reed: Yes, hi, this is, um, Reed Barnes calling about my taxi.

(Cut to Reed sitting in front of the camera, holding the phone)

Reed:(Into phone)My name is Reed Barnes.

Reed: Jonas, Sarah, you guys don't get it. You don't get it, because you're selfish. Selfish, and you're self righteous. I tried to get you guys to understand, and I tried to make you listen, but, like you always do, you chose not to listen. I don't care if you think you were doing me a favor. The bottom line is this: I thought I was a part of something here. I thought I was helping you guys out!

Reed: (Pacing back and forth between beds while talking on phone) Hi, um, I just called, like, uh, 20 minutes ago, about a taxi cab that was supposed to come and taxi cab me away...some place...

Reed:(sitting in front of camera) I thought you trusted me! The same way I trusted you. Looks like we were both wrong, huh.

Reed: (sitting on opposite bed) Reed Barnes. Yes, Barnes, thank you. What's your name?

Reed: (sitting in front of camera) I was actually dumb enough to think you guys cared. Now the way you look at me, you especially Jonas, I can tell you think I'm baggage. Which is not only completely crap, its insulting! New kid? Nice kid? Whatever you want to label me, you think I can't get pissed? Well guess what, I'm pissed. I'm REALLY Pissed!

Reed: (laying on bed) B as in Bored, A as in annoyed, R as in really annoyed...

Reed: (sitting in front of camera) I'm not going to fight you any more. I'm just going to leave. Simple as that. (snaps picture with disposable camera)

(cut to Reed picking up packed bag off bed)

Reed: (Leaning over camera from side) A word of advice before I go, the more you alienate people, the crappier you're going to be at trying to save them.
