JENNIFER:

(ON CELL) Mom... Mom... I don’t want

a party.

GRETCHEN:

I don’t want to live at Grandma’s. How

can we be broke? You made so much money.

JENNIFER:

(TO GRETCHEN) We spent so much more.

Remember all those Christmases in

Aspen and summers in Tuscany? So does

the bank. (ON PHONE) Mom, you’re not

listening.

GRETCHEN:

So we have nothing?

JENNIFER:

No, no. We still have mountains of debt.

I don’t want you to make a fuss.

MAGGIE:

You’re back!

JENNIFER:

I thought we agreed, no party.

MAGGIE:

It’s just close family and friends.

Very low key.

JENNIFER:

Is that a mariachi band?

WE HEAR MARIACHI MUSIC DRIFT IN FROM OUTSIDE.

MAGGIE:

Yes! Aren’t they wonderful? This close

to Cinco de Mayo I was so lucky to get

them.

JENNIFER LOOKS TO HER DAUGHTER.

GRETCHEN:

You’re on your own.

SHE PUTS HER IPHONE EARBUDS IN AND PLOPS DOWN IN A CHAIR.

THE MARIACHI MUSIC GETS LOUDER THROUGH THE FOLLOWING.

JENNIFER:

Coward. (THEN) Mom, I so appreciate

you taking us in but this is not

really a party day for me. I can’t

find a job, I’m upside down on my

house, I burned through all my savings

and--Seriously, if they don’t stop

playing La Cucaracha they won’t live

to see Seis de Mayo.
