boots: tom gets the call (revisited): the basics

INT LIVING ROOM - NIGHT


Tom and Wanda on the couch in their pajamas, sitting up at opposite ends, a blanket over where their feet and legs meet.


(Ruth's) painting on the wall above them.


Wanda is reading a magazine/book. Tom has laptop in lap. He hits a few keypads, she turns a page.


TOM: Says here...


WANDA: (two beats) Yes?


TOM: 'Bout that luau you was talkin' about.


WANDA: The one at Diamond Head.


TOM: Yep.


WANDA: (beat) What about it?


TOM: Well, looks like there's a sunset cruise from Kewalo Harbor.


WANDA: Where's that?


TOM: Honolulu.


WANDA: Alright.


Tom's phone ringtones (song to be determined) on the lampstand at his end of the bed.


Tom reaches for the phone.


WANDA: Who's that?


TOM: Virginia. Changed the ringtone.


WANDA: Okay.


TOM (answering): Hey there.
