Anna's expression becomes serious.

MALCOLM:

What?

She just keeps staring. Beat.

MALCOLM:

Don't do the quiet thing. You know

I hate it.

Beat.

ANNA:

This is an important night for us.

Finally someone is recognizing the

sacrifices you made. That you have

put everything second, including me,

for those families they're talking

about.

Malcolm plays softly with her face. Anna takes his hands and

holds them steady.

ANNA:

They're also saying that my husband

has a gift. Not an ordinary gift

that allows him to hit a ball over a

fence. Or a gift that lets him

produce beautiful images on a

canvas... Your gift teaches

children how to be strong in

situations where most adults would

piss on themselves.

(beat)

Yes, I believe what they wrote

about you.

Anna lets go of his hands. Anna's eyes are emotional. Malcolm

smiles softly.

MALCOLM:

Thank you.

Anna leans towards him. They hold each other tight. Beat.

MALCOLM:

What are we hugging about again?

Anna laughs as she wipes her eyes.

ANNA:

Nothing. There wasn't supposed to

be any crying at this celebration.

Just a lot of drinking and sex.

Malcolm's charming, easy-going smile returns.

MALCOLM:

I would like some red wine in a

glass.

Anna hands him his glass. He stares at it.

MALCOLM:

I would not like it in a mug. I

would not like it in a jug.

Malcolm looks at Anna surprised at what he said. They crack up

laughing. THEIR SWEET LAUGHTER FILLS THE HOUSE.

CUT TO:

INT. BEDROOM - NIGHT

TWO GIGGLING SHADOWS APPEAR IN THE BEDROOM DOORWAY. They try to

turn on the light. It doesn't come on.

MALCOLM:

Bulb's out.

Anna giggles some more as Malcolm's shadow stumbles across the

bedroom.

MALCOLM TURNS ON THE BATHROOM LIGHT.
