A Fall from Grace


INT LADY SUSAN’S TOWNHOUSE—NIGHT

Mr. F. moves around the kitchen purposefully. He opens the refrigerator door looking for something.

Lady Susan enters the kitchen.

LADY SUSAN

What are you doing?

MR. F.

Making dinner.

He pulls out the milk carton, looks at the date, unscrews the cap, and sniffs the milk suspiciously. He regards the carton with skepticism.

LADY SUSAN

Here, let me check.

Lady Susan grabs the milk and starts chugging it down.

MR. F.

Hey! What are you doing?

Lady Susan, on seeing Mr. F.’s appalled face, spews the milk currently in her mouth back into the container, on the container, and all over herself.

LADY SUSAN

Sorry!

Mr. F. continues to look at Lady Susan with an air of incredulity.

LADY SUSAN

I think the milk is still good.
