Elliot, taking one of the hors d'oeuvres, starts nibbling as

(overlapping, still eating)

Your sister is an unbelievable cook.



I know! I know!

Elliot and Hannah, eating and talking, walk past a hallway

and offscreen as Holly appears, walking down the hallway.

She holds a drink and a plate of hors d'oeuvres; she stands

at the entrance to the hallway, eating and looking at the

offscreen guests.


(walking offscreen)

She has all the cooking talent.
