Script Tool Return Value

I am trying to set up a model to do a task that I do every month.  Part of that model is a stand-alone python script that creates a file name with the date tagged on to the end of it.  How do I write my script so that it returns this string and I can use it as input for another geoprocessing tool?  I have searched the forums and help, but can't find any examples of this.

Any help is much appreciated.
