Max & Dan Sides

Int. Motel —Afternoon
Clothes are on the floor. Max, (28, attractive and yearning for attention), Dan (28, attractive and relaxed) It is the Morning after the had sex. Max is smoking a cigarette in her underwear on the bed. Dan is sitting next to her, with space in-between.
Max
I missed that. Why don’t we do this more often?
Dan
Well, if I didn’t have to drive three hours to a motel room
every time...
Max
(akward pause, Working up the courage, then said hopefully...)
I could leave him.
Dan
(sarcastic and hurtful)
Or, you could have chosen me.
Dan climbs off the bed in his boxers and starts getting dressed.
Max
(In disbelief)
What are you doing?
Dan
I need to meet my agent in the city.
Max
(confused, hurt, and annoyed)
So that’s it?
Dan doesn't look at her and continues to get dressed. Max puts out her cigerette
Dan
Don’t you have to get back to John?
Max stands up, grabs her clothes but doesn't get dressed
Max
(Annoyed and betrayed)
You sound like him. I never thought I’d hear you say
something like that.
Dan turns towards her, mostly dressed and walks up to her.
Dan
(Practically)
We know what this is, Max. You’ve been married for
two years, and we’ve been seeing each other for half
that time.
Max's eyes dart back and forth across Dan face, her heart breaking inside she finally looks away
Dan
What did you expect? We have fun together, but
I’m tired of having to fit myself into your schedule.
Max's eyes well with tears, she is filled with emotion.
Max
I didn’t expect things to go this way with either
of you. I didn’t mean to drag you into this situation.
I know this is fucked up.
Max
(Defeated)
I’m sorry, Dan.
Max looks down at the floor. Dan is now fully dressed. He smiles.
Dan
I’m not. I wanted you back then, but things were
different then.
Dan
(Getting annoyed & vicious -without screaming)
Your husband doesn’t make time for you,
so NOW you have time for me? I’m like him?
What makes you different from him?
My show is doing well. I’m starting to get calls
about Hollywood Features and you want me to
put my career on hold to solve a problem that
you created a long time ago? I did want you....
back then.
Dan adjusts his clothes and exits without looking back.
Max
(with tears in her eyes, hurt and confused)
Dan...
Max gest dressed, looks at herself in the mirror, adjusts her make up and lights her cigarette. Her hand trembles briefly as she smokes. Finally,
she gets up from the bed and begins to assemble her things in a hurried manner. She packs her camera. She exits & drives off.
