triangle Script



I can't believe you're making us late on our first week of school.
I said sorry.
Hurry up, you guys. Rosebud, grab the backpack.
Okay, Nanna.
Well, well. Huh.
Okay, you're just gonna grab the backpack.
Hi. What are you guys doing home? Ithought Nanna was taking you to school.
What's going on? You're acting weird.
I'm not acting weird.
Oh, my--
What?
He was fixing that-- you know that thing that's broken in my room underneath the--Uh, Iz, can you go fix Rosie a bagel?
Sure. Come on.
Thanks.
You could've called first.
Well, who would've thought you'd have company at 7:00 in the morning?
So, uh, we're just gonna slip out. Thank you very much for everything, Mrs., um-- You look so familiar. Have we met before?
That's insane.
No, I feel like I definitely know you from somewhere.
She was married to John Kinney. She was in all of his movies.
Who's this one now?
Wait, you’re Lilian Stewart? That's awesome. Really?
And I'm pretty sure this is John Kinney's house.
Hold on. How do you know all of this?
I stumbled into that room back there with all your dad's stuff. I'm sorry. I just got a little lost. I'm a huge, huge fan of your father's.
You're John Kinney's daughter?
Yes she is. And you are?
Am I free to head home now? 'Cause I--
As fun as this has been, believe it or not, I have a meeting to go to, so maybe we should wrap it up.
We're filmmakers too, you know? Just like your husband.
Everybody is, doll. We're in LA.
I can't believe you're here and you're you. This is surreal.
You're a terrific actress.
Come on. I mean, I did a few small parts here and there.
You were also smokin' hot. Like in the movie with the yellow bikini. I was like, "whoa, hello!"
Come on! Alice, did you hear what he said?
Yes.
John sits down at the table next to mine at ma Maison, and 10 minutes later, he pulls his chair up to mine and offers me the lead in Lola. He said he liked the way I ordered my quiche Lorraine.
So, I have to get going. Does anybody wanna walk out with me?
Actually, I'm gonna stay and make the boys some breakfast. So can you drive the kids to school? This is so fun.
Is that cool if we hang with your mom for a little?
Yeah. No, no. That's fine with me.
Wait, you're saying that was your first movie ever?

So she taught you about the solar system?
Mm-hmm.
Oh, can you name any of the planets?
I can name Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. Pluto isn't considered a proper planet.
Just hear me out. They need a place to crash; you've got a guesthouse. So I thought, you know,maybe they could stay here.
Stay here? I don't even know two of their names, mom.
Oh, come on. Since when is having three adorable guys hanging around such a bad thing? Maybe they could help you out a little.
Help me out? Help me out with what? Did they ask you to ask me this? Tell the truth.
No. Absolutely not. It was entirely my idea. I think these boys have a real shot at making it. I adored their movie. It was raw and great.
You saw their movie?
Yeah. Look. They're dead broke. If you don't let them stay here, then they have to move home back to upstate New York or wherever and blow their chance at having a career here. They need you, Alice. How's that? They don't know anyone here. I like them. Your father would have liked them. Be a patron of the arts, Alice. It's good for the soul.
Why are you suddenly romanticizing dad? The man impregnated another woman while he was still married to you.
Why do you always obsess over that?
Why don't you obsess over that?
Because I'm a big girl, and he's gone now, so I won.
If they hadn't met me, was there a plan "B"?
Maybe it was fate that they met you. Maybe you could be the person who says,"they were living at my house when they wrote whatever it's called." Look, just for a month or so.
A month?
Ok a week. Whatever. If it doesn't work out, sayonara. But just try looking at this as something that could besort of exciting.
What if the kids don't feel comfortable? You know everything that Isabel is going through. This could really set her off.
Okay.

This is so incredibly cool of you. Thank you so much.
Seriously, you're a lifesaver.
Can I help you with anything?
Uh, no, I've got it. Uh, okay. The couch turns into a bed. The hot water over here takes a minute to turn on, and there's extra towels in the closet.
Perfect. Thank you.
Uh, I'm just gonna grab that and flush it down the toilet.
Okay, guys, I hope last night didn't confuse you. This is definitely not an after-party and crash-on-the-couch type of place. This is more of a market-list-on-the-fridge, Latin-homework-after-school, dinner-at-six kind of house. I know that's not the coolest stomping grounds for a bunch of starving artists like yourselves, but let's just do our best not to cramp each other's style.
Well said.
Can I talk to you outside for a sec?
