"Marc" audition scene:|
(A) Java Cafe
(Start on Nicole, at her laptop, sipping a latte. A cute guy (Marc) hurries by, trips over Nicole's outstretched foot. His coffee goes flying)
Marc; I'm so sorry. Did I spill my coffee on you?
Nicole: Worse. My computer. Your two dollar coffee cost me a two-thousand dollar laptop.
Marc: (stammers) Ah...
Nicole: And my presentation's ruined, too. I've been working on it for weeks.
Marc: (re: the laptop) Maybe I can do something... I'm pretty decent with computers, and --
Nicole: No, don't touch it.
(coming at her with a napkin)
You've got some coffee on your --
Nicole: (snaps) Don't touch me!
Marc: I'm not usually such a klutz. I didn't see your foot there.
Marc. Look. I feel terrible. At least let me try --
(Before she can stop him, he commandeers her computer)
You're playing solitaire.
Nicole: (quick comeback) Mental health break.
Marc: (outraged) And there's nothing wrong with your laptop.
Nicole: (wry) You must have the magic touch.
Marc: (studies her) I know you. You're Nicole Walker. And here I was feeling bad about tripping over you!
Nicole: (taken aback) What's that supposed to mean?
Marc: I was ready to hand over two months' rent to pay for the damage.
(gestures toward the computer)
And you probably would've let me!
Nicole: Do I know you?
Marc: Your brother, Brandon, was a good friend of mine. Maybe this coffee thing was just a little karmic payback.
Nicole: I'll be sure to tell Brandon you said that.
Marc: And to think I always wanted to meet you.
Marc: That's what I'm asking myself now. Why? I saw your picture once.... thought you were kinda attractive. Interesting, maybe. But then again, I'm always drawn to the wrong kind of girl.
Nicole: Yeah, well, I'm taken.
Marc: Knowing your history, not for long.
Nicole: You're not a very nice person. What did my brother see in you?
Marc: Maybe the same thing he sees in you. So I guess I'm on your list now?
Nicole: What list would that be?
Marc: Men you hate. Men you love to hate. I hear you keep a lot of lists.
Nicole: Yeah, well, don't worry. You don't happen to be on any of them.
Marc: Well, good for bot of us, I guess. All right. Nice finally meet you. Not.
Nicole: Apology not accepted, by the way. Oh and uh... I didn't catch you name.
Nicole: Marc. You might want to change your shirt. You spilled something on it. Little karmic payback, I guess.
Marc: Oh. Thanks.
(He whips off his shirt. A beat as Nicole can't help admiring)
Marc: Give Brandon my best.
(Marc walks away. Nicole stares after)
Nicole: (murmurs) Wow.
Marc: (without looking back) Wow, yourself.
(On Marc, a smile crossing his lips)
