THE PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE ROOMMATES.
SCENE: MARY’S FAVORITE WONDER WOMAN COFFEE MUG IS CHIPPED.
INT. APARTMENT – DAY
Mary’s just walking in the door and heading into the kitchen, Robert, her roommate, is sitting on the couch in the living room, just a few feet away.
And go –
MARY: “Hey, thanks for doing the dishes!”
MARY: “No really, thanks.” (pause) “What’s this?”
MARY: “Looks like cement.” (Picking up a small piece of something that looks like … )
MARY: (Quickly reaches over the counter to pick up her favorite handwash-only Wonder Woman coffee mug.)
ROBERT: (Pretending to read.)
MARY: “My favorite Wonder Woman handwash only – 2nd edition already because someone put the original one in the dishwasher – coffee mug – is chipped!!”
ROBERT: “Hmmm? Oh, wow. Sorry.” (Back to reading, real quick like.)
MARY: “Sorry you did it or sorry it’s chipped?”
ROBERT: “Hmmm? I don’t know anything about it, but I know you love that mug. Sorry that it happened.”
MARY: “Yeah, thanks. It must have just chipped itself.”
ROBERT: (Still pretending to read.)
And scene! (For now.)
