5 INT. KITCHEN - AFTERNOON, CONTINUOUS (DAY ONE) 5

CLOSE on a WOMAN'S HANDS: slicing vegetables, grating

cheese,pounding meat, with alarming ferocity and speed.

RUTH:

Oh, and I just realized we don't have

any of that soy stuff Nate drinks. You

know, since he gave up milk? I don't

know what it's called.

NATHANIEL (O.S.)

(over phone line)

Why not just cut some milk with tap water?

He'll never know the difference.

We PAN up to RUTH FISHER (55), hunched over the kitchen

counter, holding the phone up to her ear with her shoulder.

Dressed conservatively, but there's a certain earthiness buried

underneath.

RUTH:

(not funny)

Look, if you don't want to go, I'll go.

It's not as if I don't have enough to do

already.

NATHANIEL:

(sighs)

I'm kidding. I'll get some. But it'll

have to be after I pick Nate up at the

airport, I'm running late already...
