2 1 INT. RADIOLOGY OFFICES - DAY 1 CLOSE UP ON A LARGE BREAST as it is maneuvered into a mammogram machine. A PAIR OF HANDS lift it, pull it and eventually squeeze into nothing more than a small tube of flesh as it s pressed down by a sandwich of glass. ANGLE ON Various shots of more breasts, young and old, high and low, as they get their mammograms. 2 INT. RADIOLOGY FRONT OFFICE - DAY 2 PATIENTS flip through magazines, RECEPTIONISTS answer phones and make appointments. 3 INT. RADIOLOGY HALLWAY - DAY 3 WOMEN in paper robes, mostly over 50, sit in chairs that line the hallway, waiting their turn. 4 INT. X-RAY ROOM - DAY 4 AN ANXIOUS WOMAN removes her robe to expose her small breasts. The technician is, 28 years old and plain looking. Let s do the left first. Rebecca does her best to get the woman s left breast onto the plate of glass. The woman winces. I think I can get...a little more. Rebecca closes the machine on her tit and moves to flip a switch. 5 INT. RADIOLOGY FRONT OFFICE - DAY 5 MARISSA AND CATHY, receptionists, do some filing. CATHY I think they re at their peak this week-end.
3 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 2. MARISSA I can t go til the end of the month. CATHY That s too bad. They might be over by then. MARISSA I know. And New York magazine gave a list where they re the best this year. Rebecca enters the front office. MARISSA Rebecca, you gonna see the leaves? Rebecca stares at her blankly. MARISSA The leaves. Upstate? They change color? 6 INT. PREWAR APARTMENT - DAY 6, 45 years old and attractive, is being lead through an enormous, dark apartment by a middle aged man, ADAM. The place is filled with furniture from the 50 s, along with a life time of mementos and tchotchkes. ADAM I apologize for the smell. We cracked the windows but it didn t help. Oh, it s fine. ADAM My mother was always cold. Most of the windows were actually painted shut. (MORE)
4 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 2A. ADAM (cont'd) (pointing to the living room set) This stuff all matches. It s the original upholstery, I m sure. Pretty dreary.
5 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 3. Kate looks around, blase about what she s seeing. ADAM You don t buy the little stuff, right? Like jewelry and clothes? We just buy furniture. Sometimes artwork, pottery. ADAM It s better to just get rid of it all at once like this, right? I mean, it s a bunch of junk and I m a busy person. Oh, definitely. You don t want to have to worry about it. ADAM (chuckling) I ll probably get rid of some priceless thing and not know it, right? Like this. He holds up a vase that s decorated with gold leaves. Oh, I don t think you have to concern yourself with that. This is a beautiful place, though. You going to keep it? ADAM Na. I like the suburbs. This kind of space in Manhattan is unreal. ADAM Yeah, if you like Manhattan. 7 INT. APARTMENT BUILDING ELEVATOR - DAY 7 Rebecca, (the mammographer) gets into the elevator with groceries. After a moment, Kate gets in as well, and they smile coldly to one another. The doors close and they ride up.
6 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 4. Rebecca shrugs. (after a while) Weirdly hot today, huh? I work inside. (snapping) You had to go outside to get to work. And to leave work, right? How s your grandmother? (pointed) Great. Doing really well. They both get out on the same floor. 8 INT. HALLWAY - CONTINUOUS 8 Rebecca walks to the left to Apartment 6A. Kate walks to the right, to Apartment 6B. 9 INT. APT. 6A/ANDRA S APARTMENT - DAY 9 Rebecca unloads groceries in ANDRA S prewar one bedroom apartment. The kitchen is original, tiles are missing, plates are washed badly. The room smells of urine and medicine. ANDRA, 90 years old, is sitting at the small kitchen table. Her face rests in its permanent frown as she holds her little bull dog LUCKY -- their expressions sadly resembling one another s. ANDRA I don t know why you don t go to Associated. You do know. ANDRA If it was your money you d walk the extra six blocks. It s ten blocks. And no I wouldn t.
7 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 5. ANDRA When my feet get better I ll do it myself. 10 INT. APT. 6B/ AND S APARTMENT - DAY 10 A two bedroom apartment, bright and cluttered but stylishly decorated. Kate is cooking dinner while her DAUGHTER, 15, does homework at the table. Abby is in an awkward stage of development and has a bad case of acne. Why does she hate us so much? What did we do to her? She sees you, she sees death. You re a vulture. Us buying that apartment has no down side. Her grandmother s still living there, we re not hovering. The only difference to her is that now she pays her rent to us instead of the sponsor. And we didn t even raise it. You re a saint. Maybe she s mean because she has a prettier sister. Mom. I ve seen the older one. She s kind of gorgeous in a low rent way. The younger one is okay looking. Maybe she likes how she looks. I doubt it. It s hard to have a prettier sister.
8 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 6. It s just so sad. What? The old lady. Andra. I mean, does she ever go outside? What s so fun outside? The world? Life? Maybe she s perfectly happy. That s how you rationalize so you don t have to feel bad for her. Why do I have to feel bad for her? She s a lonely old woman at the end of her life. That s not my fault., Kate s husband, comes into the room sifting through photos. He s 42 and attractive despite a pot belly and unkempt hair. This table is incredibly rare. He had no idea. What about this chest of drawers? Is it signed?
9 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 7. And in perfect condition. What a score. You did good! We re going to make a killing. He affectionately ruffles her hair. Don t say that. But we are. Mom knows you are. She just doesn t want it said. My zit medicine isn t working. (looking closer) You won t use what I tell you. It made it worse. You don t take my advice. So I deserve it? I m trying to help you. Don t help me. 11 INT. ANDRA S APARTMENT - A LITTLE LATER 11 Andra sits in a chair a few inches away from an OLD TV SET as it s BLASTING NEWS. Rebecca sits at the dining table near the window putting pills into a Daily Pill Organizer. (shouting over the TV) What shall we do for your birthday? Mary and I will take you out. Mary? ANDRA
10 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 8. Sure. She s just been really busy. Andra smirks. Rebecca glances out the window, a warm, fall breeze blowing on her face. She sees a small roof top party going on a few buildings away. The BBQ sends sweet smells into the sky, YOUNG PEOPLE laugh and enjoy themselves. Her face saddens as she returns to separating pills. 12 INT. AND S APARTMENT - NIGHT 12 Rebecca kicks off her shoes as she collapses onto the couch. The apartment is small and dreary, short of a couple of generic posters and inexpensive attempts at cheerful decorating. Why is it so hot? Rebecca s sister Mary, 33, very pretty with a tense, turned down mouth, leans into the room holding up a frozen dinner - Beef Medallions. Please tell me what a medallion is. When you win something. These look like - shit pellets. You want one? Sure. Thanks. Mary retreats into the kitchen and Rebecca picks up an IN TOUCH magazine. (O.S.) You would not believe what she was wearing today. Rebecca rolls her eyes. (O.S.) This backless dress and man, she has a big back. Not attractive. (MORE)
11 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 9. (O.S.) (cont'd) Not the kind of back that can carry off that kind of dress, you know what I mean? Why don t people look in the mirror? Like a dude. You know? It s weird, the way you watch her. I don t watch her. I walk by. We gotta do something for Grandma s birthday. When is she gonna croak? What if somebody said something like that about you? They probably already have. I m gonna buy her a nightgown. How much? I don t know. She s got a ratty old thing. I ll write you a check. You know the neighbors? They look at me like, is she dead yet?
12 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ Why shouldn t they? Because it s wrong. You think that if they didn t buy her apartment she wouldn t die? What s the difference. 13 INT. MODERN AGE - DAY 13 A loft like store on tenth avenue filled with mid century modern furniture. TWO MALE SHOPPERS try out a long, thin sofa. Alex comes up. MALE SHOPPER 1 Feel this texture. Nubby but soft. MALE SHOPPER 2 Yeah, but it s not comfortable. MALE SHOPPER 1 It s nice. MALE SHOPPER 2 It s not, it s too shallow or something. MALE SHOPPER 1 Well, you don t have to converse with it. MALE SHOPPER 2 Very funny. Beautiful, isn t it? Gorgeous. MALE SHOPPER 1 And comfortable. It s actually ten feet long. How much. MALE SHOPPER 2
13 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ Alex goes across the large room to the desk area where Kate is working and looks in a binder for the price. Kate glances at the couch the guys are sitting on. What s wrong with that piece? (quietly) It s not comfortable. We should take it off the floor. (to shouting to Man 2) It s very comfortable. Why did you do that? He might think it s comfortable. That s not possible. You don t know that. She watches Alex return to the shoppers and tell them the price. By their body language, she can tell they don t want the couch. She s vindicated. Abby enters from the street and flops down on a womb like chair. She s got an enormous backpack. I saw these jeans I want. What for? Cute. How much? Two. You want two hundred dollar jeans.
14 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ That s what you spend. I m a grown up. That makes no sense. It s what jeans cost. I am not spending two hundred dollars on a pair of jeans for my teenage daughter when there s forty five homeless people on our street. What does that have to do with anything? They don t want jeans. Alex comes up to Abby and kisses her. Hi, honey. You look pretty. Right. 14 INT. RADIOLOGY FRONT OFFICE - DAY 14 Rebecca is filing while DOCTOR LERNER (40), and the receptionists chat. DR. LERNER My wife and I drove up to Woodstock. CATHY Were they gorgeous? DR. LERNER Oh, incredible. The kids didn t care but we loved it. Rebecca, you going to see the leaves? No... DR. LERNER You should. They re spectacular. And they re just about to end.
15 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ Okay. DR. LERNER Really. Not to be missed. Blushing, Rebecca takes a file and walks away. DR. LERNER Next time I ll invite you to come with us. (shy) Great, thanks. 15 INT. COFFEE SHOP - NIGHT 15 Rebecca sits opposite a GUY, 30 years old. He s very clean cut and dressed formally. He refers to a printed out piece of paper as he occasionally looks up at Rebecca. GUY So it says here you grew up in New York. Yes, in the village. GUY Do you think that s good, to grow up in the city? I do. I mean, I saw a lot of things I probably shouldn t have seen, but it got me to grow up fast. I was really independent. Which in some ways is good. GUY I think it s an awful place to raise kids. It s filthy, crime ridden, noisy. And it s only getting worse. Uh huh. Well, that s true too.
16 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ GUY (back to paper) Funny, you said - you know, in your questionnaire, that you had dark brown hair. It s really kind of light brown. Really. I think it s dark. GUY I wouldn t call it dark. It s more ash. But it s brown. I mean, I didn t lie. GUY (insisting) But it s not dark brown. It is. 16 INT. AND S BEDROOM - NIGHT 16 Alex is in bed watching ACCESS HOLLYWOOD, listening to a story about Nicole Ritchie. Kate climbs in with a book. She turns to him. Are you attracted to her? Humor me. She exists purely for people like me to fantasize about. Except I think she s going to hit the wall early. Hit the wall. She s not gonna look good when she gets older.
17 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 14A. You mean, when she s like twenty seven. More like thirty.
18 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ (opening her book) That s nice. Artie threw something at his new assistant. Ohmygod. I think my ovary fell out! Howard was really mad but Artie is in anger management so he s giving him another chance. It was very entertaining. (turning to him) You know you used to read books. Well, magazines. Don t wreck my fun. I won t. Good. Don t wreck my fun. I don t have any fun. None? Will you rub my feet? He pulls her feet onto his lap and rubs them. She closes her eyes.
19 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ He looks at her toes. When did your feet get all mangled together? One toe is actually going horizontal. (to the toe) You re going the wrong way, little buddy. Go up! Ow. 17 INT. AND S BEDROOM - NIGHT 17 Alex is sleeping, but Kate can t. She climbs out of bed. 18 INT. AND S DINING ROOM - NIGHT 18 In her pajamas, Kate is surfing the internet. She types in Volunteer Opportunities and a long list comes up. She reads the different situations, each sadder than the next (ie: be a mentor to at-risk teens, read to the blind, feed quadriplegics at the VA, etc). 19 INT. X-RAY ROOM - DAY 19 Rebecca is giving an old woman, MRS. PORTMAN, a mammogram. MRS. PORTMAN I let my hair go grey when I was forty. Why fake it. People say it makes you look older. MRS. PORTMAN That s probably true. I didn t like the idea of chemicals on my head. And I didn t like that color everyone ended up with. Menopausal brown, I used to call it. I think I know what you re talking about. That s what my Grandma has. MRS. PORTMAN How old is she?
20 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 16A. She s going to be ninety one this week.
21 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ INT. WAITING ROOM - DAY 20 Mrs. Portman, now dressed in her regular clothes, comes into the waiting room with Rebecca. Eugene. MRS. PORTMAN Mrs. Portman s grandson EUGENE, smiles when he sees her. He is 35 and impossibly handsome. MRS. PORTMAN Eugene, honey. This is Rebecca. Eugene reaches out and shakes Rebecca s hand. She s shy, dumbstruck by his good looks. MRS. PORTMAN Rebecca, this is my grandson. An angel. Eugene stands up, revealing himself to be fairly short. Hi. Hi. EUGENE EUGENE Do you see it? What? My halo. EUGENE (smiling) Nice meeting you. You, too. EUGENE Rebecca turns around and goes back into the office. 21 INT. AND S APARTMENT/KITCHEN - NIGHT 21 Mary is putting two frozen dinners into the microwave. Rebecca is getting out silverware.
22 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ You should cook them separately. Same difference. I think it takes longer. This is a fascinating conversation. (looking at Mary s skin) You laid out today. Booth. It s so bad for you. You of all people should know. I m very careful. It s better than the natural rays. You could use some color. I don t want cancer. Blush doesn t cause cancer. Actually - What. There s talc. And parabens. Oh, come on. 22 EXT. APT. 6A/ANDRA S APARTMENT - NIGHT 22 Alex is knocking on Andra s door. Kate is beside him, putting a leash on their dog.
23 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ Andra! It s Alex and Kate! ANDRA (O.S.) Who is it? It s Alex! From next door! We re going to the drug store, I wanted to know - The door swings open. Andra, in her ripped and faded robe, hair askew, looks at him. We re going to the store. Do you need anything? Andra walks away. In a moment she returns with a list. (looking it over) Okay. You got it. ANDRA I hope you re not going to Windsor. They re crooks. Duane Reade. What? ANDRA DUANE READE. Andra stares at him. Kate chuckles. ANDRA You gained weight. Pardon me? ANDRA (shouting as if he was deaf) Excuse me for saying. You re a very large man.
24 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ Thanks! What? ANDRA 23 EXT. STREET - NIGHT 23 Alex and Kate walk. He looks at Andra s list. Look at what she needs just to take a crap. (beat, pleased) Good. (glancing at it) Why do all old ladies write the same? I m going to write that way. She has all this hair on her chin. Thick black ones. In her nose, too. She probably can t see them. Why are you looking at me like that? Like what. (resolved) Yes, I m probably going to have black hairs on my chin. I already do, you know. What are you so afraid of? Everything gets hairy and turned the wrong way. You re gonna get hairy and turned the wrong way. You already are.
25 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ At least you re not large. I think she s turning ninety one. Unbelievable. Who would have thought. We should have bought that apartment downstairs. I think that guy died last week. Who? The guy right below us. Martin something. That asshole? No, the whole two story thing would have been too much money. They pass a TRANSVESTITE HOMELESS PERSON sitting against a building. She s applying lipstick (badly). Kate stops, pulls a buck out of her pocket and hands it to her. TRANSVESTITE Thank you, Jamie. You re welcome. (confused) Who s Jamie? 24 INT. DUANE READE DRUGSTORE - NIGHT 24 Alex is putting the items for Andra in a basket. Kate is looking at things on the shelves when she sees something that stops her. It s Abby, listening to her ipod, unaware that they re there. She s staring intently at the Maybelline make-up on the wall.
26 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ Alex. She waves him over and he sees Abby. They both watch her choose some foundation, then put it back. She takes an eye pencil and examines its color. That too, she puts back. Kate and Alex stare as if watching something very separate from themselves, and at the same time, excruciatingly close. They re almost in a trance. She s real. I know. 25 INT. MODERN AGE - DAY 25 Kate directs TWO GUYS to move furniture around the store. We recognize some of the pieces from the apartment in the beginning. Kate is holding the vase with the gold leaves on it. Let s put that chair by the window. God, that s gorgeous! I don t even want to sell it! Great. Let s get the dining room table and put it over there. We ll have to move those chairs around. Alex comes out of the back and approaches Kate, noticing the vase. What s that? Not sure. He looks at the furniture being moved around. They re pretty nice. I think she kept plastic on them for fifty years. They should be in a museum!
27 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ What should we ask for the sofa? Five thousand? More. Maybe seven. (beat, excited) I feel guilty! What s this? There s a gift basket by the desk, filled with bath and beauty products. I got it for Andra. I thought maybe we could have her over for dinner. I think it s her birthday in a couple of days. You re joking. No. And invite her miserable granddaughter. s. Sounds fun. I don t like having bad vibes right next door. You know? Hey. I heard the guy below us had some nice stuff. Kate turns to him, excited. 26 INT. DEAD GUY S APARTMENT - CONTINUOUS 26 A gloomy place filled with newspapers and medicine bottles and AMAZING VINTAGE FURNITURE. The dead guy s daughter, ERIN, 50, shows Alex and Kate around.
28 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ I hope you don t mind the super gave us your number. ERIN I don t know if you re gonna want any of our things, though. I m sorry about your father. ERIN He was really sick. He was old. (looking around) I think there are some pieces we could use. ERIN Yeah? Huh. It s so old fashioned, I didn t think anybody wanted this stuff anymore. This was my dad. I guess you knew him. She points to an old BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO of a handsome young man standing in front of his car. He was such a nice man. So, what s going to happen to the apartment? ERIN Oh. The neighbors - (she points to the wall) They bought it. They re gonna make a bigger place, I guess. They re probably celebrating over there. Oh, no. What did they pay? Kate. Awkward smiles. I m sorry. That was really rude!
29 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ INT. RESTAURANT - NIGHT 27 Alex and Kate, along with Abby, are finishing their dinner. Do you know he used to throw away our mail if it was put in his box by mistake. (appalled) And he knew who we were? Totally. That s where all my magazines went. See? It s his fault I watch TV! Well, now he s dead so you can start reading again. Thank god! He was mean to Pickles. She always licked his feet. He wore those sandals. They must have been sweaty. Barf. I wish your Grandpa was alive to hang out with you like that. He gestures to a MAN with a LITTLE BOY at a nearby table. I think that s his dad. (quietly) No, he s old. You re old.
30 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 25A. I look like that? Kate shrugs. He looks at Abby. I look like that? Like what? Kate stops a WAITER. Excuse me, could I take this home? She gestures to her uneaten food and he takes the plate away. (beat, to Abby) That s me you re kicking, you know. 28 EXT. RESTAURANT - NIGHT 28 Kate, Alex and Abby exit the restaurant, Kate holding her doggie bag. As they walk down the street, they pass an OLDER BLACK MAN standing in front of a different restaurant. Sir? He turns to look at her. Are you hungry? Would you like this?
31 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ She offers him her doggie bag. The man glares at her, appalled. BLACK MAN I m waiting for a table. Alex, Abby and Kate are mortified. Oh, my god, of course you are! I m so sorry! Please forgive me! Alex clenches his jaw as he leads her away. Abby pretends she doesn t know them. Are you out of your mind? He looked homeless! He looked like a black man waiting for a table! 29 OMITTED 29
32 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ INT. APARTMENT BUILDING HALLWAY - MORNING 30 Abby is waiting at the elevator when Rebecca comes out of Andra s place with a laundry basket. Hey. You do your Grandma s laundry. Yup. They wait. Is it gross? What do you mean? Old lady underwear. I don t really look. Good idea. I heard you guys are coming over later. Yup. (not cool) Cool. Yeah. The elevator arrives and they get in.
33 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ INT. ELEVATOR - CONTINUOUS 31 They ride in silence. On another floor, a friendly MAN gets in. FRIENDLY MAN Hi, gals. Gorgeous day. Going to see the leaves! The girls smile. When they get to the lobby he races out. They slowly follow. FRIENDLY MAN Have a great day! Rebecca turns to Abby. The leaves! What is with these people? I know! Who gives a shit? I don t. Really. They head out of the building. See you. See you. 32 INT. HIGH END CLOTHING STORE - DAY 32 Abby shops for jeans. She checks the price tags, all the jeans are over two hundred dollars. She holds a pair up to her body and they re obviously too small. In fact, everything and everyone in this store is too small. She catches her reflection in the mirror, noticing a zit starting to appear on the tip of her nose.
34 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/08 28A. SALESGIRL (O.S.) (snooty) Can I help you? Startled, Abby turns and heads out of the store.
35 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ You shouldn t charge so much for jeans. SALESGIRL (under her breath) Then maybe you shouldn t shop in here. 33 INT. APT. 6A/ANDRA S APARTMENT - NIGHT 33 Andra is tying her old shoes with some difficulty. (taking over) I ll do it. ANDRA (annoyed) When I get my eyes fixed I ll be able to do it myself. We hear banging cabinets in the kitchen. (O.S.) Grandma! You don t have anything to drink in this place! ANDRA Who s talking? Mary. She s looking for alcohol. (O.S.) (muttering) This place is filthy. (shouting) I clean it. Mary comes out of the kitchen with a bulging, unopened can of grapefruit juice. This has botulism. Rebecca and Andra look at her blankly. Mary replaces it in the kitchen and then returns. Why exactly are we going there?
36 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ So they can poison Grandma and demolish her apartment. Then let s make it fast. Rebecca hands Andra a wrapped box. ANDRA What s this? It s a tuna, Grandma. What do you think? Happy Birthday. She opens the box and lifts up a pink satin nightgown with lace and pearls. ANDRA Too fancy. Do you like it? ANDRA What am I going to do with this? You sleep in it. Say Thank You, Grandma. Andra puts it back in the box. I did. ANDRA No, actually. You didn t.
37 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ I just thought since yours is so old. ANDRA I ll save it for a special occasion. (amused) And what special occasion might that be, Andra? ANDRA It s too nice to sleep in. That s all. You probably spent too much. You deserve to sleep in something nice. ANDRA (closing the box) It s too nice. 34 INT. AND S APARTMENT - NIGHT 34 Rebecca, Mary and Andra are entering the place. Andra looks around. We re pretty cramped here, but welcome! Happy Birthday, Andra! ANDRA (whispering loudly to Mary) What s that smell? Grandma. Jesus. ANDRA (loud whisper) I smell something burnt.
38 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ You know everyone CAN HEAR YOU. (to Kate) Sorry. She s rude. You should smell her place! ANDRA My place doesn t smell. Oh, right, piss and mold have no odor, what was I thinking? Mary. No worries. Everyone, come sit down. Anybody like some wine? Oh. Would you have any bourbon? Rebecca glares at her. What? (coming from kitchen) I think we do have bourbon. Hi. (to Mary) I m Alex. Mary. Nice to meet you. (finding the bourbon) Where d you get that tan? (pleased) Oh, you know. She lies on a tanning bed. I go to the Sheep Meadow. She lies on a tanning bed.
39 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ AND I go to the Sheep Meadow. Either way, looks good! (glaring at Rebecca) Thank you. 35 INT. APT. HALLWAY - LATER ON 35 Kate is knocking on Abby s bedroom door. No response. She enters to find Abby on her bed listening to her i-pod. Take those off. Annoyed, she does. Why are you in here? Abby points to the big red zit on her nose. I don t understand. I m not going out there with this thing on my nose. Don t be ridiculous. You can t even see it. SEE IT? It s swallowing my whole face! How can you not see it? I told you to stop eating french fries and greasy crap. It makes no difference.
40 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ Please come out and join us. You look fine. 36 INT. DINING ROOM - LATER 36 Everyone (except Abby) is sitting at the table eating. Mary is a little buzzed, so is Alex. I mean, if she was younger than me, actually, I think she is younger than me, but if she were prettier than me I d understand. But she s not, and she s got this tan - totally sprayed on - I would know. The worst part is her back, though. (trying) Are you still in love with him? ANDRA He broke up with her. That s not how it went down. What s wrong with her back? It s muscular. All built up. And she wears these skimpy tops. That s not good. No, right? Big Back is not good. Enough about her back. I don t understand. When do you see her? She works in a store near where Mary works.
41 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ Oh. What do you do? I work in a spa. Downtown. You know Face Works? I do facials there. Oh, cool. And what about you, Rebecca? What do you do? I administer mammograms. I m a radiology technician. I had no idea. Is that interesting? If you like boobs it is! You pop blackheads for a living. (beat, to Kate) It is interesting. I like the people. You know, the patients. (under her breath) Crush on the boss. Rebecca shoots a look at Mary.
42 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ Abby enters with a pair of underwear over her head. Abby what are you doing? She s covering a zit you can t even see. Abby, take them off, that s disgusting. ANDRA (re: Abby) Who is that? Is that funny? (to Abby) You should come to the spa. Facials really help. Lets see it. Abby shakes her head no. Come on, I ve seen it all. Slowly Abby removes the underwear. Whoa. That s a big one! Really? She s drunk. And on your nose. It s almost cystic. Horrible. Mary! No, I d rather someone admit it. At least then I don t feel crazy.
43 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ I know exactly what you re saying. Half the time I do feel crazy. Nobody ever says the truth. They should. If you get a sucky haircut, people should admit it. If some doctor procedure is going to hurt, they should say it s going to hurt. It makes you feel worse if they lie. I hate it when people don t say bless you. You know what I hate? When you re in like, a store, and you hold the door for the person behind you but then they don t hold the door for the person behind them? And you re standing there like a fucking doorman! And they don t say thank you! Of course not! Cause you re not there! And at that she opens her purse, pulls out a lip gloss and aggressively applies it. Jesus, sometimes I swear I must be invisible. She hands the lip gloss to Abby, who takes it, flattered. (less in awe) Anyone for coffee?
44 Untitled Nicole Holofcener Project Yellow 5/19/ INT. LIVING ROOM - LATER ON 37 Andra, Rebecca and Mary are sitting on the couch drinking coffee and eating cookies. Mary is drinking another bourbon. Alex, Kate and Abby are sitting across from them. I guess we give about two hundred for Christmas. ANDRA I give him nothing. That s why he won t fix anything for you. ANDRA If he fixed something I d give him money. You know he has like twelve children. ANDRA Nobody told him to do that. They re totally poor. They live in that one bedroom. His wife is in a wheelchair - I think. I ve never seen her in a wheelchair. I m pretty sure. I don t see her often, though. Kate gets up and goes into the kitchen.
