A Driving Date

INT. NORA’S CAR – DAY

NORA (28) sits in the drivers seat of her car as it sits on the curb of the road. KATE (25) jogs over to the car and enters in the passenger’s side.

KATE
There she is, my favourite sister.

Kate awkwardly forces a hug onto Nora over the gear stick.

NORA
Favourite sister? Alright?

KATE
Course you are. I’ve been looking forward to this lunch all day.

Kate pulls the car out and begins to drive.

NORA
Yeah, why are we having lunch anyway? This isn’t about you trying to sell me drugs again is it?

KATE
They were pharmaceuticals and no. Do we need a reason? I just wanted some sister time.

NORA
Hmm.

KATE
Well there is one other thing.

NORA
There it is.

KATE
It’s nothing really, I just need you to go out on a date with me.

NORA
Considering we’re both straight, and sisters, I don’t think we should be dating.

KATE
No, like a double date.

NORA
Kate I’m married, remember? You were my bridesmaid? I wore a white dress?

KATE
Yeah I know but I met this guy who I really like and he had this friend with him who was desperate for a date, so I told them I had a sister who was single and that I’d set up a double date.

NORA
But you do have a sister that is single, Audrey.

KATE
I can’t take Audrey, she’s to weird, she’ll probably ask them if they can taste their tongue or something. Right?

Kate poses the question to AUDREY (26) who is revealed to be in the backseat.

AUDREY
Yeah that sounds about right.

NORA
Well either way you’re going to have to find someone else. One of the main benefits of being married is that you don’t have to go on awkward dates anymore.

KATE
Please Nora, I really like this guy. I think I want to have his babies, and you know I hate babies, that’s how much I like him.

NORA
That’s what you said about the last one, what was his name? Mark, and he turned out to be a total creep.

KATE
He wasn’t a total creep, he just had a hair fetish and so kept my hair when it fell out.

NORA
And…

KATE
And he might have cut some off occasionally.

AUDREY
I liked him.

NORA
Of course you did.

KATE
This guys not like that. He’s really nice and professional. He wears suits all the time and says things like ‘profitability’ and ‘consumers’.

NORA
Well that does sound like a step up for you, but the answer’s still no.

KATE
What if I sweetened the deal? I’ll look after your rat next time you and Matt have a holiday.

NORA
It’s a guinea pig and no. Last time I left Sargent Cheeks with you, you almost killed him.

KATE
He almost killed himself. He’s the one that ate most of my pharmaceuticals. You never paid me for those either.

NORA
I had to have his stomach pumped! Let it go Kate, I’m not interested in going out on a double date with you.

Kate sighs.

KATE
Fine. Audrey would you come on this date with me?

AUDREY
Does my gentleman own a parakeet?

Kate rubs her face.

KATE
Why would you even ask that?

Nora laughs.
