Introducing Molly: a girl that gets whatever she wants, by any means unnecessary.
By Milana Vayntrub & Jon Mackey
EXT. DRIVEWAY - NIGHT JON and Molly are dressed for a night out. Jon's Car is in the driveway. Jon's pretty stoked. Molly seems off. INT. CAR - NIGHT Jon and Molly get in the car, and put their seat belts on. JON Oh, shit. Did you grab the tickets? MOLLY Of course I did. JON Sorry, it's just you had to go back in a couple times to get stuff. MOLLY I forgot my phone. JON Okay, sorry, that wasn't supposed to be a thing. MOLLY Then I don't know why you're trying to make it a thing. JON I'm not... Jon smiles, but Molly just turns away and looks out the window. Jon gives up, and turns the car on. He throws his arm over the seat and gets ready to back up. MOLLY Actually wait. Can you turn the car off. JON Sure...did you forget something? MOLLY NO! JON What is it? MOLLY It really bothers me that you hate my J. Lo impression. Jon smiles. JON That's what this attitude is about? MOLLY Why are you smiling? I'm serious. JON I didn't know it was a big deal. MOLLY It's a great impression. JON It's a really solid impression. I just wish you didn't do it at Taco Bell. MOLLY (Mexican accent) They LOVE it. When I order a gordita, I mean it sounds really good when I say it. JON Fine, I'm sorry, I won't say anything next time. MOLLY Thank you. Molly looks away. Jon takes a second then turns the car on and starts to back out again. MOLLY (CONT'D) Wait. Can you...make the car off. JON Do I have to turn it off. Can I just-- Jon turns the car off. JON (CONT'D) What is going on? Is everything okay? MOLLY I don't know is it? Look around you. JON What does that mean? MOLLY I've just been thinking a lot recently about us and how it doesn't even feel like you want to be with me anymore. JON Hold on. No. MOLLY I mean, you're always complaining about how painful my massages are. JON Why do you sharpen your fingernails? MOLLY You killed my cat. JON It was eating it's own tail, we had to put it down. MOLLY You're always telling me to get out of bed in the middle of the night because you're hot. JON That's because you set my apartment on fire. You don't put candles near my wicker chairs! MOLLY What kind of man has wicker?! It doesn't say on the candles not to put them on wicker, and it doesn't say on the wicker, not to put candles on it! How was I supposed to know, I'm just a girl?! JON I think you need to have a little more respect for yourself than to call yourself "just a girl.". Molly turns away again. JON (CONT'D) You know, seriously, you obviously have some stuff you need to figure out right now. Maybe we should just not go to the theater. You should just get some sleep or something. I'll call you in the morning. MOLLY What will you call me when we're not together anymore? Buddy? JON What do you mean? MOLLY Pal? JON None of those. You're my girlfriend. MOLLY Ugh. CHIEF? You gonna call me chief when we're broken up? JON Seriously, what's going on? Honestly, I was going to ask you to move in with me tonight. MOLLY Wouldn't it be awkward, living with your ex-girlfriend? JON WE'RE NOT BROKEN UP! Oh my god! Molly looks out the window. JON (CONT'D) Do you WANT to break up with me. Is that what this is? MOLLY No you. JON Me what? MOLLY You do. JON I want to break up with you? Molly starts to get upset. MOLLY Okay... Molly loses it. Jon is blown away. JON NO. Hang on. I'm not breaking up with you, you just "Bugs Bunny'd" me-- Molly is losing her mind crying. JON (CONT'D) Okay, you know what...I'm gonna go inside, I'm really not sure what's going on... Jon exits. As he gets out of ear shot, Molly immediately stops crying. She pulls out a phone and calls her friend. FRIEND (in phone) Hello? Just then, Jon comes back. Molly hangs up and immediately starts crying hysterically. JON This is your house, so you should go inside, actually... MOLLY Yeah, I live here, I should go... Molly exits. Jon is so confused.
