INT. A DINER - DAY
Annie and Lillian continue laughing, as they sit in their workout clothes, casually picking food off each other’s plates as they talk.
ANNIE: I’m so glad we got to do this. I feel like I haven’t seen you in forever
LILLIAN: I know, I’ve been in Chicago a lot…
ANNIE: Yea… Sleeping at Dougie’s house.
LILLIAN: It’s just closer to work.
ANNIE: How’s it going with him anyway?
LILLIAN: I don’t know… It’s fine, but I feel like he’s been a bit distant lately. He calls me “dude” a lot.
ANNIE: That doesn’t mean anything. I think everything is fine!
LILLIAN: I don’t know. Anyway, what did you do last night?
LILLIAN: What did you do last night? You’re not telling me something…
ANNIE: I hung out with Ted for a little bit.
LILLIAN: I knew it!
ANNIE: We had fun. It was fun.
LILLIAN: Here’s what I don’t like about it. You hate yourself after you see him, every time. And then we go through this and you feel like shit and it’s almost like you’re doing it because you feel bad about yourself.
ANNIE: He called me late and we hung out. It wasn’t a big deal. And it was… fun
LILLIAN: Ew, you had sex with him.
ANNIE: We had… an adult sleep over.
LILLIAN: Oh, did you let him sleepover in your mouth? Annie!
ANNIE: I’m sorry! He kept putting it near my face.
LILLIAN: They do that.
ANNIE: Let us offer! If we don’t offer ---
LILLIAN: You’re supposed to slap it away!
ANNIE: I couldn’t! You don’t want to look right at it. It’s too aggressive. It’s like…
Annie imitates a penis with her arms
ANNIE: That’s my impression
Annie sticks out her elbows
LILLIAN: Those are the balls?
ANNIE: I’m trying to make it round, but I can’t because I have elbows. He’s so hot though!
LILLIAN: Look I know you say he’s cute and all that stuff, but it makes you feel like shit. You’re a total catch and any guy would be psyched to be your man. You should just make room for somebody who is nice to you.
ANNIE: You know what, he’s honest. He told me we are what we are and we’re just having fun. And I like that!
LILLIAN: He also told you you need dental work. He’s an asshole!
Annie takes a moment. She covers her top row of teeth with food.
ANNIE: I don’t need dental work!
LILLIAN: You’re right…
ANNIE: There’s nothing wrong with my teeth.
LILLIAN: You’re so beautiful. Will you marry me?
LILLIAN: I love you.
ANNIE: I love you.
