EXT. PARK – DUSK
Filming for the day has just ended. Ramona is going over Leo's revised notes on her copy of the script. She looks up, sighing. Simon appears, handing her a cup of hot chocolate and sits next to her.
SIMON: I'm starting to regret offering to help.
RAMONA: I'm starting to regret letting you help.
They look at each other and laugh.
SIMON: What's that?
Ramona looks back down at her lap.
RAMONA: Oh. Leo's notes. Just some changes.
Simon takes it from her and flips through it.
SIMON: Some? It looks like he's changing the whole damn thing.
Ramona laughs nervously.
SIMON: I'm sorry about Leo. I forgot just how much of an idiot he could be.
Ramona shakes her head.
RAMONA: It's fine, really. I trust him. He knows what he's doing.
Simon shoves his hands into his coat's pockets and Ramona takes the moment to sip from the cup.
SIMON: You know, if it weren't for you I—
Ramona looks at him.
SIMON: Forget it.
RAMONA: You wouldn't what?
SIMON: Nothing, Ramona.
RAMONA: Oi! Spit it out!
Simon laughs. He gets up to his feet.
SIMON: Let's go for a walk.
SIMON: I begged Sally to hire another cook so I could act in your film, Ramona. I think you can let an unfinished thought slide.
Ramona squints at him. She stands.
They start to walk. The crew members are packing up for the night.
CREW MEMBER #1: Bye guys!
RAMONA: Bye! See you tomorrow.
Simon waves goodbye. Ramona turns to him.
