Danny: Work on our showcases.
Claire: (nods her head and goes towards the art section)
Melanie: (going to her office)
Adam: (assistant) She’s so stupid and all she does is ask me for coffee then she yells at me when im not doing anything, what the hell am I supposed to do if you’re not telling me anything? Ever since she gained her fame she’s been a total termagant.
Chad: (Employee) She looks like a fat ugly german chick with a big ass
(everyone quiets down)
Chad: She’s right behind me isn’t she?
Melanie: In my office, the both of you right now.
(they both follow her into her office)
Melanie: What the hell is your problem?
Adam: (doesn’t say anything)
Melanie: What gives you the balls to stand up there and insult me right in front of my face?
Chad: (doesn’t say anything)
Melanie: Are you going to say something or just stand there?
Adam: We’re sorry. It’s just that we were best friends Melanie, what happened?
Melanie: I got a life, thats what happened. And you know I think I’ve been a pretty damn good boss that pays you more than enough for just getting me coffee.
Adam: You’re right, im sorry.
Melanie: Four extra hours for you, you may leave.
Adam: It’s my little sisters birthday today.
Melanie: Then tomorrow.
Adam: Thank you.
Melanie: And Adam,
Melanie: Can you get me coffee?
Adam: Of course. (leaves)
Melanie: (looks at Chad) I can fire you.
Chad: I was just joking.
Melanie: You hurt my feelings.
Chad: Like you didn’t hurt mine?
Melanie: Oh please your a man grow a pair.
Chad: You told the WHOLE building im still a virgin and now everyone thinks im gay. Im not gay.
Melanie: Yes, but you made my 6th grade school picture life size and put it outside the building for the whole city to see.
Chad: (doesn’t say anything)
Melanie: Im cutting your sick days and taking away your vacation time.
Chad: Thats not fair I was joking around Melanie come on I already have that vacation paid for!
Melanie: (tears in her eyes) YOU CALLED ME UGLY
Chad: You know you’re not, everyone knows your not, you were ranked #1. for most beautiful woman in peoples magazine, it was a joke. Please don’t take away my vacation.
Melanie: Just leave, don’t come back.
Chad: Are you firing me?
Melanie: No, just leave for the day.
Chad: Do I still get paid?
Chad: (sighs and walks out).
Adam: (walks in) Here’s your coffee. (puts it on the desk)
Melanie: Thank you Adam.
Adam: You okay.
Melanie: I’ll be fine.
Adam: Need anything else?
Melanie: Can you give those manuscripts to Mr. Greene?
Adam: Yeah sure. (picks them up) thats all?
Melanie: Yes, thank you.
Adam: No problem.
(After school at Danny’s house)
Danny: (walks in with Claire)
Claire: I love your house.
Claire: It’s so calm and pretty.
Danny: (laughs a bit) Thanks I guess.
Claire: Your mom must clean a lot.
Cassie: (coming down with a load of laundry) Yes she does.
Danny: Mom can she stay for dinner?
Cassie: Sure if her aunt lets her.
Claire: Yeah I called she said she’d be home late anyway.
Cassie: Then yeah thats fine.
Danny: Mom check out Claire’s painting.
Claire: (shows it to her)
Danny: Isn’t it awesome?
Claire: It’s not that good.
Cassie: This is beautiful, what did you get on it?
Claire: A B
Cassie: Why not an A?
Claire: She said that she liked it, she said she liked it a lot and that it looks like a professional painting but that it doesn’t show anything.
Cassie: What does that mean?
Danny: The whole point of today’s lesson was to take a picture of something and let it show it’s meaning.
Cassie: How are you supposed to do that, you’re in school.
Danny: Since it’s a senior class during lunch everyone left and came back with their picture.
Cassie: Why did you paint one then?
Claire: Because I don’t have a camera..
Cassie: Oh.. I still don’t see why you didn’t get an A.
Claire: Because I painted a lagoon with trees, and it doesn’t really mean anything or.. anything. (shrugs) She says I think too much and that I should just paint.
Cassie: And she lets you turn in paintings even though it’s a photography class?
Claire: (nods her head) Sometimes I’ll borrow the schools camera and turn in pictures, but the majority is paintings.
Cassie: Why can’t you just buy a camera?
Claire: I um.. I can’t afford it. And I didn’t want to take any of Danny’s..
Cassie: Your aunt is hollywoods most wanted can’t she just buy you one?
Claire: She doesn’t know about this.
Claire: Because she wants me to do something better with my life, she thinks that if I take this class then I’ll want to turn it into a profession, like Danny.
Cassie: Danny isn’t going to be a photographer.
Danny: Why not?
Cassie: Because I say so.
Danny: But I like it.
Cassie: I know you by now Danny.
Danny: (slightly smiles)
Cassie: See. Thats why I get angry with him. He thinks I don’t know what he wants to be.
Danny: Because you don’t.
Cassie: I know you better than you know yourself.
Danny: Then what do I want to be mother?
Cassie: A doctor.
Danny: Damn she’s good.
Cassie: (looks at Claire) Anyways, if thats what you want to do with your life then you need to tell her and have her understand. You can’t be what she wants you to be just to make her happy. Your happiness comes first.
Cassie: And by the way you’re already painting I wouldn’t be surprised if you made it all the way through.
Cassie: You should really tell your aunt and show her. But anyways, I have to go fold clothes
Claire: Need help?
Cassie: If you want.
Danny: No she’s okay Claire come on lets go upstairs.
Claire: But I feel bad.
Danny: She’s fine, come on. (takes her hand and goes upstairs) Oh hey dad I didn’t know you were here.
Aidan: Yeah I was asleep.
Danny: This is Claire.
Aidan: Im Aidan.
Claire: Can I call you Aidan or Mr. Gray?
Aidan: Mr. Gray makes me sound old, Aidan.
Claire: (laughs) Okay, nice to meet you.
Aidan: Likewise, you staying for dinner?
Claire: mhmm, if thats okay with you.
Aidan: Of course. I’ll call you two down when it’s ready.
Danny: (goes to his room)
Claire: (follows him in) I like him.
Danny: Yeah he’s cool.
Claire: Thats your real dad right?
Danny: Yeah, yeah.
Claire: You don’t look like him.
Danny: I don’t look much like my mom either.
Claire: True. Where did the curls come from?
Danny: I have no clue.
Claire: Thats weird.
Danny: Whatever. (sits on the bed) So what do you want to do?
Claire: (shrugs and sits next to him)
Danny: Do you play video games?
Claire: I used to play with my friends little brother.
Danny: What kind?
Claire: Any (looks by his tv) But I’ve never played with a playstation before.
Danny: Do you want to?
Claire: Sure, sounds like fun.
Danny: Pick a game.
Claire: (looks through them) This one.
Danny: A girl playing call of duty?
Claire: I’ve played it on Xbox, can’t be too hard.
Danny: Thats cause you’ve never gone against the king.
Claire: Yeah okay just put the game in.
(20 minutes later)
Danny: I lost.
Danny: I can’t believe I lost.
Claire: I told you I’ve played before.
Danny: You don’t understand, I don’t loose.
Claire: But.. you just did.
Danny: I know.. to a girl.
Claire: (laughs) Yeah I know thats the best part.
Danny: I can’t believe I lost.
Claire: Lets just keep this our little secret.
Danny: You better not tell anyone.
Claire: (laughs) I wont.
Danny: You better not black mail me either.
Claire: I wont, I wont.
(20 minutes later)
Claire: (laying down next to Danny on his bed) Do you usually lay down with friends when they come over your house?
Danny: No, you’re special.
Claire: Oh really? What makes me so special?
Danny: You’re cute, and funny, and have a bubbly personality, and your shy, and cute, and funny.
Claire: You said that already.
Danny: Sorry, I forgot.
Danny: (leans in to kiss her)
Cassie: (walks in) Foods rea--
Claire: (backs away and looks at him)
Claire: Food’s ready.
(When Melanie gets home)
Aaron: (sitting on the sofa watching T.V)
Melanie: (puts her keys and purse on the counter)
Aaron: (doesn’t say anything)
Melanie: (looking in the fridge)
Aaron: Your food is in the microwave.
Melanie: Oh. (opens the microwave to see what it is, then closes it and warms it up)
Aaron: (flipping through the channels)
Melanie: (goes upstairs to change, then comes back down in her PJs, takes out the food and sits on the table)
Aaron: (looks at her, then back at the tv)
(10 minutes later)
Melanie: (playing around with the food)
Aaron: (still watching tv)
Melanie: How long is this going to keep going?
Aaron: How long is what going to keep going?
Melanie: This whole, I hate Melanie lets not talk to her thing.
Aaron: I don’t hate you.
Melanie: Yeah well you don’t like me either.
Aaron: You’re right, I love you.
Melanie: Then why wont you talk to me?
Aaron: Im just trying to process everything Mel.
Melanie: It’s not my fault that this happened.
Aaron: You kissed him Melanie, I know you kissed him.
Melanie: No I didn’t Aaron I swear. He kissed me.
Aaron: So everything was his fault, none of it was yours?
Aaron: It’s your fault too Mel.
Melanie: It’s not my fault, I told you what really happened. How many times do we have to go over this? He kissed me, I pushed him away he grabbed me, and I don’t want to talk about the rest. How is any of that my fault?
Aaron: You shouldn’t have gone.
Melanie: I went for a drink. I talked to you right before I got out of the car. I didn’t know he’d be there. I didn’t know that I’d have to have this conversation with you right now.
Aaron: How much did you drink?
Melanie: I just had a beer, Aaron. (gets up and goes to the room)
Aaron: (follows her and grabs her wrist) Im sorry.
Melanie: It really bothers me that you actually think that this had something to do with me.
Aaron: It just seems weird. You don’t do that in the middle of a bar.
Melanie: Okay, you want every detail, this is what happened. I had my drink, after I had to go use the restroom, he was coming out of the guys bathroom and noticed me, so he followed me in. And thats what happened.
Aaron: And you didn’t tell anyone.
Melanie: I already told you I wasn’t going to tell anyone, he threatened me!
Aaron: Which is why you tell the police.
Melanie: He’s an FBI agent, Aaron. No one would believe me.
Aaron: Your sister is head of that.
Melanie: Especially my sister!
Claire: My mom is an FBI agent..?
