Los Angeles, Tina is driving with Angelica sitting next to her in the passenger seat.
(Angelica) So, why am I staying with Mum tonight? It’s not her night
(Tina) Angie I’ve told you this ten times, Alice is taking me out for my birthday so we’ve swapped nights
(Angelica) But it’s not your birthday, it was last week
(Tina sighs) I know baby but Alice was away then so she wants to make a thing of it this weekend
(Angelica) Well is Mum pissed?
(Tina sighs) She’s fine, she always loves having you, you know that. And don’t say pissed
(Angie) I don’t mean pissed with me. Any excuse for you two to be at each other’s throats
Tina looks over at her with an eyebrow raised.
(Angie) Sorry, fine. Angry. Fuming. Enraged
(Tina) Nice vocab. And no, everything’s fine
They pull up at Bette’s house and Tina gets out to help Angelica with her bags.
(Angelica) You’re not coming in are you? It’s not a good idea Mum
(Tina sighs) Angie it’s fine, I need to sort out the weekend with her
Angelica sighs as she walks up the path.
(Angelica) OK, here we go
Tina knocks on the door.
(Angelica) Mum, I have a key
(Tina) Can we just wait please? I’d feel more comfortable
(Angelica) This is a bad idea, I can’t actually remember the last time you two were in the same room
They stand together waiting at the door.
(Angelica) Oh wait, I can actually, my last birthday. You told her to go fuck herself
(Tina) Angie, Jesus! Language!
(Angelica) I’m quoting you!
(Tina) Well I shouldn’t have said that, and I also didn’t know that you heard it
(Angelica) I hear everything
(Tina) Well, you’re also 12 last time I checked, and still have to listen to your mothers
Bette opens the door and sees Angelica first.
(Bette) Angie why are you knocking? Have you lost your key?
Bette sees Tina and sighs.
(Bette) Was there something you needed?
Angelica walks past them into the house.
(Angelica) Here we go
They both watch her go and then look back at each other.
(Tina) I just wanted to let you know I can pick her up from school tomorrow. I’ll drop her back here and then she’s with you for the weekend as usual
