Opening: Night scene – Camera pans a woman’s upscale bedroom. The bedroom is neat and well decorated. Woman is in bed, alone, and fast asleep. She may be sleeping in the nude, we can’t really tell. Alarm clock on the night stand reads 1:15. There is no sound, and then her cellphone rings.
Hi. It’s me, what’re you doing?
(not happy) I was sleeping. (Testily) What do you want.
Nothing, I was just lying here, thinking how much I miss you, wanting to hear your voice.
Yeah, I miss you too, but we’ve been through all this… I thought we agreed not to call each other.
Are you alone?
(Sigh) Why are you calling? Have you been drinking?
Yeah, I was out with the crew from work. It’s what made me think of you, there were so many cute couples.
(Silence, then…) Remember, it was you who decided we should see other people.
Are you? Seeing other people?
I don’t want to talk about it.
You want to come over and just cuddle?
THAT is definitely not a good idea. (A loud pop is heard over her phone, then a fizz) What was that?
I just opened a perfectly chilled bottle of Billecart Salmon Brut Rose. Am I drinking alone?
(long pause) I’ll be right there.
