GK: ...after this message from the Professional Organization of English Majors.
SS: Excuse me, is this chair taken?
GK: No. Go ahead. Sit down.
SS: Thanks. Gosh, this place is so crowded.
GK: Oh. I didn't notice. I've been glued to my laptop screen.
SS (GASP): Oh my gosh! You're a screenwriter!!!! Oh, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have looked over your shoulder like that. Wow. A screenplay. I recognize it because I'm an actress. I'm sorry. I shouldn't be reading this.
GK: It's still pretty rough.
SS: I love this line. "Life is insurmountable but every morning we mount up and try again."
GK: It's not finished yet, but--
SS: "HELEN: O Brad, you're such an adventurer. You bring out the daredevil in me. I want to quit this waitress job and run away to Ireland with you. For a week, a month, a year -- and just accept the gifts life gives us." --I'm sorry. I'll drink my coffee and let you write.
GK: Okay. (TYPING FAST AND FURIOUSLY)
SS: (UNDER) Wow though. A screenwriter. I mean of all the people to meet at a coffee shop in Los Angeles. I sit down with a screenwriter. What are the odds? --I bet you went to college didn't you.
GK: I did.
SS: Wow. What was your major? If you don't mind my asking?
SS: Oh my gosh, English? Wow. Wow. --I'm sorry. I shouldn't read over your shoulder like this-- (TYPING CONTINUES) "Oh Helen, life is too short to waste it on grad school. Let's sell everything we have and go to Ireland and live with utter intensity a wild and vibrant life."
GK: Are you okay?
SS: I'm fine, I'm just'wow. Kiss me, English Major.
GK: What, now?
SS: Yes now. Please. Right now.
GK: A life of glamour, a life of opportunity...when you're an English Major. A message from the Professional Organization of English Majors.
