Synopsis: Cassidy Harper (Virginia Kull) is a struggling actress sleeping on her mother's couch (Marilu Henner) and grinding out auditions, fearing that any chance at stardom may have already passed her by. Desperate to save enough money to move to Hollywood, she takes a job working as a runner for her mother's boyfriend (Ed Begley, Jr.), an importer in Chicago's diamond district. When she realizes the money is trickling in too slowly for her to put a stake together, she conspires with the owner's son (Ashton Holmes) to stage a robbery and keep the diamonds - using her former boyfriend (Zach McGowan) as the fall guy. Their hare-brained scheme only gets more complicated when she realizes she's still in love with her volatile ex.

- Miranda and

Cassidy, we're ready for you.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Hi, girls nice to see you.

This is Mitchell

from the network.

- Hey, guys, let's take

this for a spin, okay.

So, Miranda, your character

is kind of a hipster

but sort of brainy but

still sexy and approachable.

Cassidy, you're reading the

landlord whenever you're ready.

- I'm sorry one second.

I thought I was reading Hannah?

- Did they give

you the wrong sides?

- No, it just says mid 30s.

No, never mind.

It's totally fine just give

me one second to look it over.

- Just gonna be a minute.

- Yeah, I know.

- Okay, got it cool.

- Okay, perfect

whenever you're ready.

Slate first.

- Hi, I'm Miranda Delonge.

- Hi, I'm Cassidy Harper.

- Fired, for what?

- Look I need to talk

to you about something.

- Okay.

- I need to borrow $1400.

- Are you bananas?

- They're gonna

kick me out of the apartment

if I don't pay the back rent.

- I thought you were

gonna get a roommate.

- I interviewed

Craigslist people.

One of them had a tarantula.

- Isn't Ray's name

still on that lease?

- I have not talked

to ray in months.

- Well, I don't have it.

- Okay, well, then do

you have some boxes

cause I'm gonna need to

sleep under a bridge,

and I hear if you make

a mattress out of them

that keeps you from

getting frostbite.

- Do you think I have some

secret vault someplace?

- You know I will pay you back.

- Oh, I know for a

fact that you won't.

How are you gonna pay

for next month's rent.

I think that you should

come and live with me

until you can save

up some money.

- No, absolutely not.

- Alright, alright

there's a liquor store

across the street

I'm sure they have some boxes.

- Why are you being

so awful to me?

An artist's life is like

this sometimes, mom.

- Do you think I'm so fulfilled

working in a perfume counter?

By four o'clock my

right eye is twitching.

You know what's

gonna happen to you.

You're gonna end of

marrying the first

hairy slob who comes along

who can pay your bills.

Is that what you wanna

be, somebody's concubine.

- You know what forget it.

I'm sorry I bothered you.


But just until I get

my sh*t together.

Can I have a little

cash just for now

just for walking around money.

- You're welcome.

- Are you going out?

- Yes, he'll be here any minute.

- Who?

- A guy I've been seeing.

I met him at the gym.

- I thought you went to curves?

- I switched.

It smelled like soup, all right.

No cigarettes.

- You are too trusting.

You don't know this guy.

What if he's another

Dan Danielson.

- The guy with the parrot?

He was okay.

I can't believe

you remember him.

- That bird was aggressive.

Just please will you stay

in well lighted areas?

- Hello.

Okay, tell him

I'll be right down.

There is a low fat stir

fry in the freezer.

Listen just I want

you to stay here,

and I want you to think about

I want you to think

about your future, okay?

Does this look okay?

- Yes, you look hot.

- Okay, okay.

Alright don't wait up.

- Ugh, gross.

- Hey,

I didn't think

you'd still be here.

- I fell asleep.

- Yeah,

I can see that.

Feeling better?

- I feel wretched.

How was your date?

- It was nice.

I actually have some

good news for you.

- Am I getting a new daddy?

- The man I was out

with he has a business,

and he's hiring so.

- Oh, dear lord.

- Oh, come on,

Cassie, it's a job.

- What does he do?

- He's in the diamond business.

- I don't wanna be a saleslady.

I don't know anything

about jewelry.

- You are so ungrateful

forget the card.

- No, no, no I'll go.

I'm sorry thank you

I appreciate it.

- You should go home.

Get some sleep.

You look terrible.

- Hey.

- Hey.

- Hey, ha, what?

Don't you

- Alright, man, come on.

- Shut up, shut up.

- Okay guys, guys, guys.

I'm gonna get.

- I'm gonna get.

Guys, guys, guys, I'm gonna get.

I'm gonna get.

- Sit down.

See you're running, but

I know where you work.

Alright so why waste all

of that effort tell me?

- I don't know.

I freaked out.

- Well, I'm gonna assume

that if you had my money

this little track meet

wouldn't have happened.

- Look I need like

three days, okay, okay.

- Listen when I agreed

to loan you this money

I explained to you, you

were actually borrowing

it from my employer.

Now I assumed you were

familiar with his reputation.

- Please explain

to Lil pop that I...

- no, no one needs to

explain anything to pop.

Someone needs to explain to you

that our repayment

schedule is inflexible.

Ask your friend Hiram how

pop feels about excuses.

- Hiram Gladstone?

The zoo thing?

Pop was the one that tied

him up to a wolf habitat?

- Well, do you

like animals, huh?

I'm adding two points a week.

- Come on.

- Yes.

I don't appreciate being

made to run in these clothes.

- F***.

- No hurry just come

in whenever you feel like it.

- We open yet?

God forbid what'd you have to

answer the phone or something

I'd never forgive myself.

We open at 10.

- Hi, hi, I'm looking for Barry.

- What can I do for you?

- I'm supposed to hopefully

start working here today.

- Right, sorry.


- Hi.

- Sorry, come in.

- Cassidy.

- Alex.

- I'm supposed to ask for Barry.

- Yeah, that's my father.

He'll be out here in

a minute to act weird

and make you feel uncomfortable.

How much do you

know about the job?

- I know that this

is your address

and that I was supposed
