A moment from a screenplay:

EXT. SCHOOL -- AFTERNOON

The door into the playground cracks softly open.
Kit peers out, looks around. Then he slips out,
followed by Nita.

From around the corner of the building, Joanne and
her crowd emerge. Nita and Kit pause, look at each other.
Then, together, they head toward Joanne and her gang.

A "High Noon" moment: the two factions move toward each
other, Nita and Kit grim and determined, Joanne and her
bunch furious and bent on revenge. As they close --

A REALLY BIG BANG of displaced air -- and, out on the
playground, a LEAR JET (with its engines idling) APPEARS
out of nothing and DROPS a couple of feet to the ground.
Everyone stops right where they are, staring.

KIT
(astonished, impressed)
What. The.

Joanne's gang, also astounded, do what everyone else in
the area does: they run over to look at the jet. Joanne, angry,
goes after her posse.

JOANNE
(to Nita)
Later. Believe me.

Nita and Kit glance at each other, then at the still-flickering
Fred as he REAPPEARS between them.

KIT
Fred! Nice going.

FRED
(sounds sick)
I saw them, so I exerted myself a little.
Can we go now?

NITA
Yeah.

They head off around the corner of the building. Kit glances
back at the playground, full of the vast assortment of Fred's
emissions.

KIT
What're they gonna do with all that stuff?

NITA
(shrug)
Ebay?

They hurry O.S.

(snrk)
