FADE IN:

INT. RESTAURANT - MORNING (PRESENT DAY)

LOUISE is a waitress in a coffee shop. She is in her early-
thirties, but too old to be doing this. She is very pretty
and meticulously groomed, even at the end of her shift. She
is slamming dirty coffee cups from the counter into a bus
tray underneath the counter. It is making a lot of RACKET,
which she is oblivious to.There is COUNTRY MUZAK in the
b.g., which she hums along with.

INT. THELMA'S KITCHEN - MORNING

THELMA is a housewife. It's morning and she is slamming
coffee cups from the breakfast table into the kitchen sink,
which is full of dirty breakfast dishes and some stuff left
from last night's dinner which had to "soak". She is still
in her nightgown. The TV is ON in the b.g.From the kitchen, we can see an incomplete wallpapering
project going on in the dining room, an obvious "do-it-
yourself" attempt by Thelma.

INT. RESTAURANT - MORNING

Louise goes to the pay phone and dials a number.

INT. THELMA'S KITCHEN - MORNING

Phone RINGS. Thelma goes over to answer it.

THELMA
(hollering)
I got it! Hello.

INT. RESTAURANT - MORNINGLOUISE
(at pay phone)
I hope you're packed, little
housewife, 'cause we are outta her
tonight.

INT. THELMA'S KITCHEN - MORNING

THELMA
Well, wait now. I still have to ask
Darryl if I can go.

LOUISE (V.O.)
You mean you haven't asked him yet?
For Christ sake, Thelma, is he your
husband or your father? It's just
two days. For God's sake, Thelma.
Don't bea child. Just tell him
you're goin' with me, for cryin' out
loud. Tell him I'm havin' a nervous
breakdown.

Thelma has the phone tucked under her chin, as she cuts out
coupons from the newspaper and pins them on a bulletin board
already covered with them. We see various recipes torn out
from women's magazines along the lines of "101 Ways to Cook
Pork."

THELMA
Healready thinks you're out of your
mind, Louise, that don't carry much
weight with Darryl. Are you at work?

LOUISE (V.O.)
No, I'm callin' from the Playboy
Mansion.

THELMA
I'll call you right back.

Thelma goes through the living room to the bottom of the
stairs and leans on the banister.

THELMA
Darryl! Honey, you'd better hurry
up.

DARRYL comes trotting downthe stairs. Polyester was made
for this man, and he's dripping in "men's" jewelry. He
manages a Carpeteria.

DARRYL
Damnit, Thelma, don't holler like
that! Haven't I told you I can't
stand it when you holler in the
morning.

THELMA
I'm sorry, Doll, I just didn't want
you to be late.

Darryl is checking himself out in the hall mirror, and

it's obvious he likeswhat he sees. He exudes over-confidence
for reasons that never become apparent. He likes to think
of himself as a real lady killer.

He is making imperceptible adjustments to his over-moussed
hair. Thelma watches approvingly.

THELMA
Hon.

DARRYL
What.

THELMA
(she decides not to
tell him)
Have a good day at work today.

DARRYL
Uh-huh.

THELMA
Hon?DARRYL
What?!

THELMA
You want anything special for dinner?

DARRYL
No, Thelma, I don't give a shit what
we have for dinner. I may not even
make it home for dinner. You know
how Fridays are.

THELMA
Funny how so many people wanna buy
carpet on a Friday night. You'd
almost think they's want to forget
about it for the weekend.

DARRYL
Well then, it's agood thing you're
not regional manager and I am.

He's finally ready. He walks to the door and gives Thelma
the most perfunctory kiss on the cheek.

THELMA
'Bye, honey. I won't wait up.

DARRYL
See ya.

Darryl leaves. We see his Corvette parked out front. As he
closes the front door, Thelma leans against it.

THELMA
He's gonna shit.

Thelma laughs to herself....
