Going Out

INT. LOUNGE ROOM – NIGHT

A young woman, ERIN, paces around the lounge room, she’s dressed up but is clearly irritated. As she paces she keeps looking at her phone sighing every time she looks at it. Finally she stops when she hears a car pull up. She storms over to the front door pulling it open aggressively. Her best friend, TAMMY, jogs up the walkway towards her. She’s dressed casually and greets Erin with a big smile.

TAMMY
Hey E, you, look, beautiful.

ERIN
I know I do. Do you realise how late you are?

TAMMY
Is MADS here yet?

ERIN
No, but she’s busy saving lives. What’s your excuse?

TAMMY
My dog got really sick-

ERIN
I know you don’t have a dog.

TAMMY
The neighbors dog?

ERIN
Stop it. I know you were playing games in your bath for the past three hours. You’ve been live tweeting it.

TAMMY
Aww you were following me, thanks babe.

ERIN
I was trying to find out why you weren’t here! You know I hate being late and you were too busy recreating titanic with your bath toys.

TAMMY
You like that one? It got thirty eight retweets. I used real ice for the iceberg.

ERIN
You’re not even dressed yet.

TAMMY
Yeah I am.

ERIN
No you’re not, go borrow some of my clothes, wear something nice.

TAMMY
Ughhh, okay Mum.

ERIN
Don’t you use that tone with me young lady.

Tammy runs up the stairs when a knock comes from the door. Erin opens it to reveal Mads, a freckled redhead, also dressed up.

MADS
Hey, sorry I’m late, I got held up at work again? Is Tammy here yet?

ERIN
Yeah, she’s up stairs getting changed into something more acceptable. Apparently she was too busy to do that at home.

MADS
Yeah I read about that horrible boat accident in her bath on the way over here.

ERIN
She’s a regular James Cameron. I can’t believe how late we are.

MADS
It’ll be right Ez. I’m pretty sure they’ll wait for us, they kind of have to.

Erin calls up the stairs.

ERIN
Tam, are you ready yet?

TAMMY (O.S.)
Almost, I’m just live tweeting my wardrobe change.

Mads looks at her phone.

MADS
She really is.

ERIN
Less tweeting more…not tweeting.

TAMMY (O.S.)
Good one.

ERIN
Just hurry up!

MADS
Hi Tammy.

Tammy walks down the stairs in a lovely dress but with her sneakers still on.

TAMMY
Madalicious, you’re looking hot gurl.

ERIN
Why are you still wearing sneakers?

TAMMY
None of your shoes fit. I never realised how big your feet are.

ERIN
Ughh, good enough, let’s go, I’m driving.

Erin ushers Tammy and Mads out of the house closing the door behind her.
