Joomla Ajax loading for contact form component

I am trying to implement ajax loading for the joomla 3.2.1 default contact form component.

I set a menu link to the contact form in the backend.

This is the HTML output :

<nav id="menu2">
<div class="moduletable">
<ul class="nav menu">
<li class="item-138"><a href="/contact">Contact</a>

and I have this div at the bottom of the page :

<section id="contact_form">

I implemented this Jquery code :

$('.item-138 a').click(function () {
return false;

The contact form loads well and my template override works. but how can I prevent loading the
content that comes with it?

tag, default scripts (mootools jquery...) and default css (

Can I do that with a template override? Is it even possibler?
