LANEY (CONT’D)

Come on Donny. Everyone’s waiting

for us.

He turns off the engine.

LANEY (CONT’D)

Do I look high?

Laney fumbles around in her purse. She finds the Visine and

puts a couple of drops in each eye. She’s a pro.

DONNY:

You look beautiful.

Donny tries to pin Laney against the wall next to the front

door to kiss her but she wiggles out of it. Flashes a smile.

Tosses what’s left of the lollipop into the bushes.

6 INT. KITCHEN - DAY - CONTINUOUS 6

LANEY:

We’re back! Who’s hungry?

Through the french doors we see BRUCE and SUSAN (both mid-

30’s). Three kids, ELI (8), JANEY (6) and HENRY (8) are

playing happily on the trampoline. Donny starts removing food

from the bags. Laney heads outside.

Pink (03/02/2014) 44.

7 EXT. BACKYARD - DAY - CONTINUOUS 7

Bruce and Susan are bundled up and watching the KIDS play.

Hearing the door open, Bruce turns around to see Laney. He

has a vaguely suspicious look on his face - is that always

there?

BRUCE:

What took you so long?

Laney wraps her arms around Bruce’s neck and gives him a

kiss.

LANEY:

They forgot the Moo-Shu Pork and I

know it’s your favorite.

She is well versed in identifying a suspicious look. Even

more so in knowing how to dismiss it with a kiss.

BRUCE:

Food’s here! Everybody inside!

Susan, you hungry?

8 INT. KITCHEN TABLE - DAY - SAME 8

Bruce, Laney, Donny and Susan are sitting around the kitchen

table eating. There are open boxes of Chinese food and a few

open beer bottles on the table. The KIDS are milling around

the kitchen. Eli, in head-to-toe Nike sweats looks like a

mini version of his father. He’s dribbling a basketball.

Susan passes Donny a manuscript.
