Phone Confrontation

EXT. MARY’S HOUSE - NIGHT

Mary dials and puts the phone up to her ear.
It rings.

ANSWERING MACHINE
It’s George. Make it short.

MARY
Hi... Dad. I don’t know what you want, but I figure I should at least find out. It’s just been so long.

(beat)
MARY (CONT’D)
Tomorrow I can meet you at 3. I’ll be on the bench at the corner of Main and Summerfield. Show up and I’ll hear what you have to say.

Mike is behind her leaning against the door frame.
Mary hangs up the phone.
She gets up to go inside and notices Mike.

MIKE
You really think that’s a good idea huh?

Mary shrugs.

MIKE (CONT’D)
I’ll be surprised if he shows up. I mean after all he didn’t even go to...

MARY
He couldn’t.

MIKE
Why are you defending him? I mean, why are you even opening this up again?

MARY
He’s my Dad.

Mary pushes past Mike through the front door.

MIKE
Mary...

Mike closes the door.
