Scene 1

FADE IN:  PATTI is on her cellphone.

PATTI:

(very excited)

So guess who I ran into the other day? Jeff Wood! He looks exactly the same as when we went to school together!

(speaking with amazement)

Turns out, he’s got a place just about 5 minutes from me and belongs to the same gym I do. (pause)

(picking up the excitement again)

… I know, I can’t believe I haven’t run into him before this. … So yeah, we’re gonna get together for coffee or something (pause)  … I know! Who knows?

Scene 2

FADE IN:  PATTI is on her cellphone.  This time, however, she is not so excited.

PATTI:

(very matter of fact)

So guess who I ran into the other day? Jeff Wood! He looks exactly the same as when we went to school together!

(not sure if this is a good or bad thing)

Turns out, he’s got a place just about 5 minutes from me and belongs to the same gym I do. (pause)

(same matter of fact statement)

… I know, I can’t believe I haven’t run into him before this. … So yeah, we’re gonna get together for coffee or something (pause)  … I know! Who knows?

Hey Nick. You said you wanted to see me about the conference call with the sales operations managers?

(NICK is looking at screen, talking matter-of-factly. Never looks at HANNAH)

NICK

Yeah … I’m … happy you took care of that this morning. Thanks for doing that … (distracted). … As you know, I had that emergency this morning and had to run. …. Wait a second … (hits key or two) … okay! … Where was I?

HANNAH

You were talking about the conference call

NICK

(still looking at the screen) Right! Keep doing what you’re doing … (still looking at screen) did you need anything else?
