JOE
How about
They don't know each other
He works the night shift
And she takes clases all day?
Here's the thing, they both share the same room
Sleep in the same bed
It works out cheaper that way

BETTY
I've a feeling you're just kidding
But to me it sounds believable
Makes a better opening than that car chase scene
Girl find boy, borrowing her toothbrush
Or oversleeping
Or at her sewing machine

JOE
You know, it's not bad, there are some real possibilities...

BETTY
Who's Norma?

JOE
Who's who?

BETTY
Sorry, I don't usually read private cigarett cases.

JOE
Norma's a friend of mine: middle-aged lady, very foolish, very generous.

BETTY
I'll say: this is solid gold. "Mad about the boy"?

JOE
So how's Artie?

BETTY
Stuck in Tennessee. It rains all the time, they're weeks behind.
No one knows when they'll be back.

JOE
Good.

BETTY
What's good about it? I'm missing him something fierce.

JOE
No, I mean this idea we had. It's really pretty good.
Back to work.

BETTY
What if he's a teacher?

JOE
Where does that get us?
Don't see what good it would do.

BETTY
No, it's great
If they do the same job

JOE
So much in common
They fall in love, wouldn't you?

BETTY
Yes, but if he's just a teacher
Then we lose those scenes in the factory

JOE
Not if he's a champion for the working man.
Girl likes boy, she respects his talent

BETTY
Working with someone can turn you into a fan

JOE
This is fun, writing with a partner

BETTY
Yes, and it could be...

JOE
A helluva movie

BETTY
Can we really do this?

BOTH
I know that we can!
