Act 3.1

221 34 10



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.

RAMONA: Thanks.

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 grins.

SIMON: Nothing, Ramona.

RAMONA: Oi! Spit it out!

Simon laughs. He gets up to his feet.

SIMON: Let's go for a walk.

RAMONA: Simon!

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.
