DEREK #1 - EXT. TAPAS BAR – PATIO

SALLY, 28 and dressed like an aspiring Audrey Hepburn, sits with her co-worker MARGARET, 28, wearing bold colors and large jewelry, her roommate CHERYL, 27, beautiful and delicate, and her sister ROSE, 20, at a table on the back patio of a bar on the Lower East Side. Rose stares into her drink, lost in thought, absently running her finger along the outside of her cocktail glass as Sally reaches across the table for Rose’s hand to comfort her. A fresh round of drinks has just arrived at the table, in addition to the drinks the girls are still in the middle of finishing and several small plates of tapas; a WAITRESS walks briskly out of frame. Margaret and Cheryl are quite animated, whispering back and forth as they flirt with a GROUP OF GUYS in t-shirts and jeans playing darts toward the back of the bar. SEAN, 31, smiles flirtatiously at the girls as he leans on a high top table and raises his glass to them in a mock toast. Next to him, his friend DEREK, 29, raises his glass and takes a swig of his beer but doesn’t take his eyes off of Margaret.

DEREK #2 - EXT. BACKYARD OF SALLY’S APARTMENT – NIGHT

Liam argues with Clarence and his friends as they sit in a cluster of folding lawn chairs and smoke cigars. Derek has gradually warmed up over the course of the evening and is heartily engaged in their drunken discourse, which Liam acts like he’s winning but the other guys are having none of it. Next to him Margaret smokes her cigar like a pro and watches Derek with pleasure as he finally engages with her friends. The smoke from their cigars hangs in a small cloud twisting around the twinkling lights above them. The alcohol has made Rose sleepy and she’s laid her head in Hannah’s lap as they listen to their esoteric debate. On the edge of the circle, Sally nibbles on some leftover cake as she vents to Marc about her drunken boyfriend’s behavior. Marc leans in to listen and tries to be supportive. Cheryl has disappeared from the party, as has Phil. In the background two last couples slow dance, clinging to each other for support while a third makes out along the back wall of the apartment building.

DEREK #3 - INT. FANCY RESTAURANT – NIGHT

Marc sits trapped on the inside of the table, Sally and her newly minted fiancé on one side, Rose and Hannah on the other. Sally is very touchy with Liam and rests her head on his shoulder as he opens a small stack of engagement presents from their friends. Rose holds a guestbook handmade by Sally for the occasion and coaxes a reluctant Hannah to sign their names together. Marc looks stiff and uncomfortable, forgotten by Sally and ignored by Rose, and he leaves a foot of space between himself and each of the happy couples. On the other side of the table, Margaret reads a funny engagement card being passed around the table with Derek and Cheryl. Clarence and Dan sit at the end of the table debating each other once again. The restaurant has a warm, rustic farmhouse aesthetic with distressed wood and candles everywhere. The waitress has placed a basket of country loaf on the table with a dish of butter and several people have started to dig in.
