The Transcript For This Page
The end of the day. Robyn is coming out of the kitchen, wiping her hands on a towel. She's also wearing a white fry-cook's apron and has her hair pulled back with a small elastic tie. Emily is at the counter, having a cup of coffee.
Caption: The end of the day:
Robyn: No more orders?
Emily: Looks like that's it for the dinner shift.
Babbette the Elder walks over from her cashier station, all smiles.
BtE: Y' did well on your first day, kiddo. Picked up the kitchen routines real fast.
Robyn: Thanks, Sv. Guzmán. It's not all that complicated.
Babbette leans on the counter, adopting as informal and relaxed pose as she can. Robyn is removing her apron.
BtE: It's 'Babbette,' hon. I may be your boss, but I'm not a 'boss.'
Robyn: I know, S – Babbette, but I'm still learning names here and I think of 'Babbette' as being your granddaughter.
We see BtE, Robyn and Emily in the background left, in the foreground right Babbette the Younger has entered the cafe and is walking toward them. (We see her from behind)
Emily: Speak of the devil …
Babbette the Younger: The devil you say.
Four-shot. Now we see that BtY has a white bandage covering her nose. The bandage has what looks like a small computer chip on it. Emily is smiling at her sardonically; Babbette grins right back at her. Robyn is looking a bit ashamed.
Emily: Hey, the nose accessory really improves your looks!
BtY: I can arrange one for you, too.
Robyn: I'm really sorry I busted your nose.
Babbette the Younger steps behind the bar to pour herself a glass of water. As she does this she speaks to Robyn. Robyn is looking downcast. BtE also should be seen in this frame.
BtY: Hey, I was thinking – with you being declared 'presumed dead,' your parents must be in an awful state.
Robyn: I know. But how do I get a message to them without tipping off the authorities?
Babbette the Elder puts a protective arm around Robyn's shoulder and they start to exit the café, leaving BtY and Emily in their wake.
BtE: Where there's a will there's a way, hon.
BtE: Let's go see Reggie. He's back in town now and knows plenty o' tricks for dealing with this kind of problem.
