CHARLIE:

Jesus, Peggy. Take it easy. I'm not

used to that stuff. You always did

the bills. Blame the damn post

office.

A workman approaches carrying an old mono record player:

black and white, a real fifties artifact. For a moment their

mutual resentment melts, as they look at each other.

PEGGY:

That stays.

The workman looks to Charlie for approval. Charlie nods. The

workman shrugs, and heads back to the basement.

CHARLIE:

You got a Tab?

PEGGY:

I don't buy them anymore. You were

the only one who drank them.

INT. REC ROOM

Peggy leads the way. At the far end, she flips a light switch

that turns on a wall sculpture of lava lamps.

CHARLIE:

You don't want them? They're going

to make a big comeback any minute.

Mark my words, these lamps are

going to...

PEGGY:

I know. Put Scott through college.

CHARLIE:

I'll think of a way to sell, them.

(beat)

One day.

Peggy opens a box filled with records. She closes it and

moves to another. Charlie checks the contents of another box

on the other side of the room.

PEGGY:

Are you taking Janet to the reunion

tonight?

CHARLIE:

I'm not going.

Scott calls from the top of the stairs.

SCOTT:

Come on Dad!

CHARLIE:

Be right there. I'll go through the

rest of this stuff next weekend.

SCOTT:

Bye Mom.

PEGGY:

Bye sweetheart.

Peggy and Charlie look at each other as Scott leaves.

CHARLIE:

(with real, regret)

I never thought it would go

this far.

Charlie exits. Peggy looks around. She slaps the flap of a

box down, to close it, but it jumps back up.

DISSOLVE:

EXT. PEGGY'S DRIVEWAY

Peggy and Beth carry the cake boxes into the car A NEIGHBOR

trimming the hedge watches them lasciviously.

Peggy and Beth drive off.

EXT. STREET

Peggy's car rounds a corner into the business section of

town.
