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!”

ROBERT: “Yeah.”

MARY: “No really, thanks.” (pause) “What’s this?”

ROBERT: “What?”

MARY: “Looks like cement.” (Picking up a small piece of something that looks like … )

ROBERT: “Hmmm.”

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.)
