INT. HELEN’S HOME/PARLOUR — SUNSET

Seated in a spacious armchair, Helen reaches for the candlestick telephone on the stand beside her. Lifting the receiver from the switch hook, she dials a number.

INT. KENT HOME/KITCHEN — SUNSET

After long seconds of ringing, Jonathan enters the kitchen and strides up to the wood-panelled wall telephone.

JONATHAN: (answers phone) Jonathan here.

INT. HELEN’S HOME/PARLOUR — SUNSET

HELEN: (smiles) Dearest Jonathan.

INT. KENT HOME/KITCHEN — SUNSET

JONATHAN: (frowns) Who’s this?

INT. HELEN’S HOME/PARLOUR — SUNSET

HELEN: (wry) I’m surprised at you. Granted, it’s been a spell. But so long as to forget the voice of your oldest, closest friend?

INT. KENT HOME/KITCHEN — SUNSET

JONATHAN: (stern) Helen.

INT. HELEN’S HOME/PARLOUR — SUNSET

HELEN: You remember!

INT. KENT HOME/KITCHEN — SUNSET

JONATHAN: If you’re calling after Clark, he isn’t available.

INT. HELEN’S HOME/PARLOUR — SUNSET

HELEN: Oh, you’ll do. Quite nicely.

INT. KENT HOME/KITCHEN — SUNSET

JONATHAN: How may I help you today, Hel?

INT. HELEN’S HOME/PARLOUR — SUNSET

HELEN: Clark and I’ve spent quite the amount of time together. So much time, I wake some mornings thinking I’m Mrs. Helen Kent. (chuckles) Thanksgiving’s fast approaching. I’ll be hosting a dinner. I’ve invited my sister and her family. While I know Clark isn’t family, it simply wouldn’t do to exclude him and his from the festivities.

INT. KENT HOME/KITCHEN — SUNSET

JONATHAN: I don’t think so, Helen.

INT. HELEN’S HOME/PARLOUR — SUNSET

HELEN: (sighs) I suppose I can call back later; perhaps Martha’ll be available to pick up the line. Or perhaps I’ll drive out to your quaint, picturesque property and pay your wife a personal visit. (beat) We have much to discuss, she and I, and I can be quite the chatterbox. (malicious) Quite the chatterbox.

INT. KENT HOME/KITCHEN — SUNSET

Jonathan doesn’t speak a word.

INT. HELEN’S HOME/PARLOUR — SUNSET

HELEN: And don’t forget to include your niece. Clark has told me all about her; I’m simply perishing to meet the perfect dear.

INT. KENT HOME/KITCHEN — SUNSET

The line goes dead.

FADE OUT
