GRETEL:

Oh.

MINNIE:

I think she’s a phony. What kind of

person falls in love with the

people who kidnap and torture them?

Charlotte and Gretel turn toward Minnie, surprised. Charlotte

finally takes in Minnie:

CHARLOTTE:

Is that what you wore today?

MINNIE:

Mom?!

CHARLOTTE:

I’m just saying. It wouldn’t kill

you to wear something with a waist.

Jeez.

Gretel laughs.

4.

MINNIE:

(to Gretel)

Shut the f*ck up.

Charlotte goes back to watching the coverage.

MINNIE (CONT’D)

I’m gonna go do homework.

Minnie exits. Charlotte calls after her.

CHARLOTTE:

Kimmie called.

Charlotte and Gretel go back to the TV.

6 INT. MINNIE’S HOUSE - BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS 6

Minnie pulls the rotary phone into her messy room and dials

frantically. The bed is unmade, a record player sits on the

floor in the corner, and the dresser’s drawers hang open

MINNIE:

(into phone)

Hi, may I speak to Kimmie please?

Oh, okay. Yeah could you just ask

her to call Minnie the moment she

get in? Thanks.

Minnie hangs up, frustrated.

7 INT. MINNIE’S HOUSE - HALLWAY - MOMENTS LATER 7

Minnie digs frantically through the closet, searching. She

flings articles of clothes, and tennis rackets out of the

for:
a seventies cassette recorder complete with a

microphone. She wipes dust off of it.

8 INT. MINNIE’S HOUSE - BEDROOM - MOMENTS LATER 8

Minnie presses record on the tape recorder, noticing some

dark dried blood on her index finger. She picks at it for a

moment, smells it. She thinks about where to begin. Then, she

jumps up, locks her door. She sits back down.

MINNIE:

(into mic)

Um. Testing? No - F*ck -
