1.(in the morning at Tracy's cafe "Pit Stop")
(David enters and sees Tracy)
Tracy: David, how are you?
David: I'm doing alright. You?
Tracy: I'm doing well and might I say the same for the cafe too. Business is doing great.
David: I wish I could say the same for myself.
Tracy: What's wrong?
David: Lately I haven't been able to write any novels. I've been low on ideas, my creativity has been absent lately. I'm starting to worry. If I don't come up with an idea soon I could be in a real mess.
Tracy: How is that? Didn't your lastest book bring in a lot of money?
David: Yes but most of it went to bills. The company I'm with is threatening to release me if I don't do something soon.
2.(at the Taylors mansion)
(in the kitchen, Scott is having his morning coffee when Blain enters)
Scott: Good morning.
Scott: I've been meaning to have a talk with you about some things with the company.
Blain: What things?
Scott: I've been reviewing the cover stories on the newspaper for the past couple of weeks and I have to say I'm not pleased.
Blain: I don't understand.
Scott: They're too soft. The cover story has to be something earthshattering, something big. The people don't care about the 65 year old lady saved from a house fire, they care about all the bad things that happened to the biggest names in society. Frankly if you intend on staying aboard at The Tribute you're going to have to play with fire a little more.
Blain: So basically you want me to toy with others lives?
Scott: Well when you say it that way it sounds horrifying.
Blain: Fine, I'll see what I can do. (leaves)
(Scott's wife Rebecca enters)
Scott: Look who decided to get up.
Rebecca: Don't start,I'm in no mood to deal with you.
Scott: When are you ever?
Rebecca: Me! You're one to talk.
Scott: Oh here we go again.
(Rebecca looks around)
Scott: Don't worry, your precious son has lefted.
Rebecca: Good because it's time that I set things straight, once and for all.
3.(at the Morales house)
(in the living room, Diego is watching television as Joe enters)
Joe: Have you seen Richard?
Diego: He went to the hotel to get an early start on his work.
Joe: He must have forgot.
Diego: Forgot what?
Joe: What today is? Dana's returning home from school. I wanted everyone to be here when she returned. You know how hard it is going to be for her. She took our parents dead very hard.
Diego: I know.
Joe: I'm going to call Richard and get him here.
4.Rebecca: How dare you tell me that I never want to deal with you when you know it's the exact opposite. You're always tied up in that stupid newspaper that you shut out everyone and everything in sight.
Scott: That is not true.
Rebecca: Oh of course it is, you just don't want to admit it. That's the cause of this dead marriage between us. And you know what really makes me mad, having to always pretend that we are the happiest couple alive when we're in public, it's truly sickening.
Scott: I don't have time for this, I'm due at the office.
Rebecca: My point exactly.
Rebecca: Run along Scott, you don't want to be late.
(Scott takes one last sip of his coffee and leaves)
5.(at the cafe)
Tracy: Well I hope everything works out for the best.
(David walks over to the magazine stand)
(meanwhile Tracys husband, Marshall enters)
Tracy: Hey, what are you doing here? I thought you worked 9 to 5 today.
Marshall: I did until I took off. Oh, the great pleasusres of owning your own business.
Tracy: Well I'm glad you stopped here.
Marshall: So am I.
(Marshall and Tracy kiss)
(meanwhile Victoria Prescott enters and Tracy spots her)
Tracy: Great, just my luck for her to come here.
Marshall: Who Victoria?
Tracy: Yes, that woman is nothing but trouble and she brings it everywhere she goes.
Marshall: Has she ever done anything to you?
Tracy: Besides the smart gestures and disturbing remarks, no. But trust me, I won't let my guard down. For some reason there's something I don't like about her yet...
Marshall: Yet what?
Tracy: This may sound strange but somehow I feel our lives are connected.
(Marshall looks at Tracy confused)
6.(at the Morales house)
Joe: Good, you're here. Dana should be here any minute.
Richard: You're jumpy, why?
Joe: I'm just nervous. Dana hasn't been home since our parents accident and I'm not sure she put all that behind her. I think that by her coming back home will remind her of everything and she won't know how to handle it.
Diego: And you know how Dana likes to keep things bottled up inside her, it's just a matter of time before her emotions get the best of her.
(the doorbell rings)
Joe: That must be her. Well, here goes nothing.
(Joe answers the door)
7.(at the Andrews mansion)
(the doorbell rings and Jennifer answers it)
Blain: Hey Jen, is Kelly here?
Jennifer: Yeah, Kelly! Come in Blain.
(Blain comes in as Kelly comes downstairs)
Kelly: You're early? I thought we weren't meeting until later.
Blain: I know but I decided to come early.
(Blain and Kelly kiss)
Jennifer: Well I better get going to the office.
Blain: Oh check your mailbox, I lefted a memo for you.
Jennifer: Ok, bye. (leaves)
Blain: So, how are things?
Kelly: Same as usual. Mason is still throwing a fit about how my mother is running Andrews Global, while Jen is still being the good little girl she is and while I'm the one with all the problems.
Blain: That's not true.
Kelly: Of course it is. I feel like the ugly duckling in this family who doesn't belong. I'm nothing like Mason or Jen. Both of them have established solid careers and have made plenty of accomplishments. I've accomplished nothing.
Blain: It takes time. Besides Mason and Jen are older than you. I'm sure that at twenty they were in the same position that you are in.
Kelly: Nope. Mason started as an intern at Andrews Global at 19 while Jen started as a secretary at a law firm at 20. I'll never be like them.
Blain: Well that's good because I want you to be yourself. I love Kelly Andrews and Kelly only.
Kelly: I know but I don't think that.... if...
Kelly: Listen, I know that we may try to forget about everything that may harm our relationship but we have to face reality sooner or later. I'm not so sure that you're family is going to continue to support your seeing me if I can't even hold a job. They nearly flipped when I was having my drinking problem.
Blain: I thought you were going to leave that in the past.
Kelly: Well I can't hide the truth like you can, it doesn't work. The dream world that we created doesn't exist and I'm finally realizing that.
Blain: Why are you doing this?
Kelly: I'm not doing a thing. I'm just trying to own up to the truth. All my life I've lied to myself so I wouldn't have to face the truth and now it's taking it's toll whether I like or not.
8.(at the Taylors mansion)
(Katheleen is there with Rebecca)
Rebecca: Thank you for coming over Katheleen, I really needed soomeone to talk to.
Katheleen: I could tell when you called. You sounded really angry. What happened?
Rebecca: Scott and I got into another heated argument again. It's the fifth one this week alone. I can't take it any longer. It makes it even worst that I'm keeping all of this from Blain. I just don't want him to have to worry.
Katheleen: But what is he going to think when he finds out that you've been keeping this from him?
Rebecca: I don't know, I haven't thought of that. I don't know what I'm going to do. My marriage is falling more and more apart by the minute.
9.(at the Morales house)
(Joe opens the door and it's Dana)
Joe: Dana, welcome home.
(Dana forces a smile upon her face)
10.(at the Taylors)
Katheleen: What are you planning on doing about it?
Rebecca: Who knows? I don't want to divorce Scott because I'm afraid of what that might do to Blain. But am I suppose to give up my happiness for the sake of my son, if I didn't, would that be so selfish?
Katheleen: No offense but Blain is a grown man and he has to live with whatever decisions you make. You can't live to please him, you live to please yourself and yourself only. Besides Blain needs to learn that the world isn't perfect and that his parents aren't an exception.
Rebecca: I suppose you're right. Well I guess I know exactly what I have to do.
11.Blain: I don't like the way you're going with this. I've heard talk like this before and we both know where that lead to.
Kelly: What my drinking? That's right it did. I swear, people are so two-faced.
Kelly: Everyones always talking about how they never like to be lied to yet they hear the truth they despise it.
Blain: Why do I get the feeling that you're referring to someone specifically?
Kelly: I don't know, should I?
Blain: (looks at his watch) I have to go.
Kelly: I thought we were doing something today.
Blain: Somethings come up. I'll call you later. (leaves)
(Kelly looks over to her right at the bar)
(she walks over and picks up the glass container with brandy in it)
Kelly: Six months sober.
(she takes the top off the glass container)
(she almosts drinks some but places it back down)
(she puts the top back on the container and walks away into another room)
