Lauren Scene / Heather Scene

INT. RESTAURANT - DAY
Kevin is meeting Lauren for lunch (it's a first date, complete with the incumbent awkwardness)

KEVIN
So, Lauren - your mom tells me
you're a teacher?
LAUREN
Yep. 3rd grade.
KEVIN
Cool. So, uh, you like this
place?
LAUREN
I LOVE this place.
KEVIN
Cool. Me too.
LAUREN
So, how did you get into real
estate?
KEVIN
That's a good question. I was
actually studying to be a pastor.
LAUREN
Oh, wow. That's a shift.
KEVIN
Yeah, I tend to take lots of
shifts. Wow, that came out really
weird. Sorry.
LAUREN
No worries. So why didn't you
become a pastor?
KEVIN
I did most of the hard classes.
Greek. Hebrew. Hermeneutics.
And I guess my heart just wasn't
in it.
LAUREN
Or maybe you didn't have that
particular calling?
KEVIN
That's a nice guilt-free spin. I
like that. Thanks for that.
Yeah, I really believe I heard the
voice of God in my heart tell me,
very clearly, "Thanks for the
gesture, Kevin, but, ah, no thank
you." If I had become a pastor, I
don’t think any congregation would
have wanted me. I’m not so
patient, and I’ve got a bit of a
temper.
LAUREN
I noticed that about you. I heard
you chew out that loan officer the
other day.
KEVIN
Sorry you had to hear that. That
was awful.
LAUREN
No need to apologize to me. Not
much offends me. I mean, the Fbomb
grates on my nerves, but not
because I think it's a
particularly "sinful" word or
anything like that. It just
bothers me.
KEVIN
Like fingernails on a chalkboard.
LAUREN
AAAAAAAAAAh! Don't even SAY that.
(Kevin puts a paper napkin in his mouth.)
KEVIN
Or putting a paper napkin in your
mouth.
(Lauren maintains an unimpressed look, arms folded over
her chest, looking at Kevin sideways.)
KEVIN (CONT’D)
Nothin'?
LAUREN
Nope. Doesn't even phase me.
KEVIN
Not even a little?
(Kevin takes the paper napkin out.)
KEVIN (CONT’D)
So, on a more serious note, where
did you go to college?
LAUREN
Hillsdale.
KEVIN
Wow, really? Hillsdale College?!
The bastion of all that is right
and good with America!
LAUREN
With the world. That's the one.
Where did you go?
KEVIN
I did my undergrad at Ohio State,
and then I went to the Assemblies
of God Theological Seminary in
Springfield, Missouri.
LAUREN
Wow, Assemblies of God. That's
hardcore!
KEVIN
That's me - Mr. all or mothing.
Kevin gets a text from Sam.
LAUREN
What's wrong?
KEVIN
It's Sam. He needs me back at my
place. He's probably fallen and
he can't get up.
LAUREN
(laughing)
You're a riot!
KEVIN
Thank you, Lauren. That is the
highest compliment anyone can give
me. I’m a total sucker for people
who think I’m funny. Hey, I'm
glad we did this.
LAUREN
Me too.
KEVIN
See ya around?
LAUREN
See ya around!

***HEATHER SCENE***

EXT. KEVIN’S CAR - EVENING
We see Kevin & Heather leaving a house they just saw (Kevin is a real estate agent). He opens the car door for her, and they drive to the next house.

KEVIN
That was awful. I can still taste
that kitchen in my mouth.
HEATHER
Want a mint?
KEVIN
I’m gonna need more than a mint to
get that stench outta my system.
You don’t have a cheap cigar in
that purse, do ya?
HEATHER
Ha! There’s got to be a way to,
like, put odor warnings on these
printouts.
KEVIN
Good idea. Like a scratch n’
sniff feature?
HEATHER
Exactly!
(Heather laughs as Kevin writes.)
KEVIN
Client does not prefer the mold /
air freshener / cat pee combo.
I’ll work that in to your search
criteria. I shoulda’ previewed
these houses for you, saved you
the time.
HEATHER
Moving forward... totally. The
less time I spend with you, the
better.
(Heather puts her hand on top of Kevin’s. They look at
each other and smile.)
KEVIN
I mean, how does that kind of
smell even happen? Do these
people not have friends or jobs?
Do they never go out?
HEATHER
I know. You’d think someone would
be like, “Hey, John. You smell
like moldy cat pee. You might
wanna have someone out to take a
look at that.”
KEVIN
Who would you even call for that?
A veterinarian? A general
contractor? You’d think the
mailman would say something - you
can smell it from the street. I
mean, isn’t it the mailman’s legal
responsibility to report the
potential harvesting of veterinary
penicillin in a residential
neighborhood?
HEATHER
Yeah, that’s a felony, I think. I
guess those odors just happen so
gradually, they never notice it.
I remember growing up - certain
friends had certain house smells.
Maybe it was the various
detergents, or lack thereof.
