EXT. DREW’S APARTMENT – DAY

Drew’s Apartment

Title: Two Months Later

INT. DREW’S APARTMENT – DAY

We see how the apartment has changed. A woman’s touch is in evidence. A single Spasmotica poster remains, but in an entirely new context.

DREW

Some more wine, Ben?

And we see BEN, pleasant-looking, 28, offering a wine glass. Drew pours. Claire sits between them. Content and excited to be with both of them.

BEN

Thanks . . . that’s amazing . . . and that’s how you met.

DREW

That’s how we met.

Claire rubs each of their arms, lovingly. Ben takes a last sip of wine.

BEN

She’s very inspiring. But then – I’m partial.
I’m her brother.
(beat, confides)

She used me as protection for years. For every
guy on a plane who ever wanted to pick her up.

CLAIRE

Please. I threw myself at him.

Drew looks at Claire. Claire smiles to herself and looks down.

DREW

And to think, on a dark night not so long ago,
I almost missed meeting both of you.

Ben rises, and we see the exercise bike near the door.

BEN

Well, thanks for the exercise bike. I might
have a problem getting that to my car.

CLAIRE
(rising)

If it wasn’t this, it’d be something else.

DREW

Here, I’ll help -

The three grapple with the unwieldy bicycle, now toothless and knife-free, attempting to find a way to angle it through the narrow door.

BEN

There’s got to be a way to get this out the
door? I mean, you got it in . . .

CLAIRE

Here, try it at this angle -

DREW

Okay, wait, I got it -

CLAIRE

Drew, you can’t do everything yourself -

BEN

Push to the left – wait, it’s slipping -

DREW

it’s alright, we have it -

CLAIRE

I knew you guys would get along.

BEN
(with hands full)

You sure you guys want to give this up?

DREW

- take it. I actually think it’s good luck.

Their conversation continues as they ease it out the door, credits continuing, and we hear them, almost dropping that bike, narrowly avoiding disaster, off-screen now, laughing, as we . . .

FADE TO BLACK
