Hannah and Her Sisters (2)



INT. HANNAH'S KITCHEN - NIGHT

Hannah, licking her fingers, walks past a memo-cluttered
refrigerator to the stove as Holly, behind her, begins to
speak. The faint sounds of music are still heard.

HOLLY
Hannah, I have to borrow some more
money.
(sipping her drink)
Don't get upset.

HANNAH
(stirring some food
in a saucepan on the stove)
Mmm, I never get upset over that.
Mmm?

HOLLY
This is the last time, I promise.
And I'm keeping strict accounts.

As Holly talks, sipping her drink, Hannah busily works in
the kitchen, which contains a large center table stacked
with bowls and plates of food, hanging pots and pans, and
general party clutter. She walks on-and-offscreen as she
talks and listens to her sister.

HANNAH
Holly, please. Don't insult me.

HOLLY
(putting her empty
glass and plate down
on the table)
Someday, I'll pay it all back.

HANNAH
I know. H-how much do you need?

HOLLY
Two thousand dollars.

Hannah, who'd been mashing some food in a bowl on a nearby
counter, hesitates momentarily. She turns to Holly.

HANNAH
(trying to nod her
head casually)
Uh-huh.

HOLLY
(gesturing, her back
to the camera)
Hannah, I know it's a lot, but my
friend April and I, we have this
catering idea I think's going to be
great.

Hannah, licking her fingers, walks past Holly.

HOLLY
(turning to face Hannah)
You admit that we're great cooks,
right?

HANNAH
(nodding, back at the
stove now, stirring
in a pot)
Yeah.

HOLLY
(putting her hands in
her pockets)
Well, in order to get started,
there's just a few things I have to
buy...
(gesturing)
and some old debts I have
outstanding.

HANNAH
(looking at her sister)
Will you just tell me one thing?

HOLLY
(nodding)
Okay.

HANNAH
Are we talking about cocaine again?

HOLLY
(shaking her head no)
I swear. I swear. We've already
got some requests to do a few
dinner parties.

A timer goes off. Hannah walks past Holly to attend to some
food on a different stove. Holly turns to face her. Only
Holly is seen as she talks to the offscreen Hannah, the
camera moving in closer on her face. As Holly speaks, she
distractedly nibbles an hors d'oeuvre. In the background,
her parents can be heard singing in the living room.

HOLLY
I mean, obviously, I'm not going to
be a caterer forever, you know. We
both still go to auditions.
Something could turn up at any
moment. But the parties are at
night, days are free, I can still
take my acting class. I haven't
done drugs on a year.

Holly pops another hors d'oeuvre into her mouth as the
background singing gets louder and the film cuts to:

INT. HANNAH'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

The living room is crowded with family and guests sitting
comfortably on chairs near the piano, where Evan, Hannah's
father, plays "Bewitched" as Hannah's mother, Norma, sits
nearby, accompanying him in their duet. A child is sprawled
out
under a blanket on a sofa; some guests chatter quietly;
others drink and eat, listening.

EVAN & NORMA
(singing)
"A whimpering, simpering
Child again
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered
Am I..."

As they continue to sing, the film cuts back to the kitchen,
where Lee, carrying some glasses, enters through the doorway.

LEE
Mom and Dad are floating down
memory lane again!

Lee walks over to her sisters, putting the glasses down on a
counter. Hannah is scooping seeds out of a cantaloupe.
Holly, leaning on the table, sips her drink. The music from
the living room is softly heard as the three sisters chat
comfortably and easily with each other.

HANNAH
(smiling and turning
to Lee)
Aah... Hey, have you tried Holly
and her friend's shrimp puffs?

LEE
(nodding to Holly,
touching her arm)
I think they're fantastic.

HANNAH
(to Holly)
You've outdone yourself.

HOLLY
(overlapping her
sisters, shrugging
and smiling)
Oh, my God. Thank you.

LEE
(interrupting, to Hannah)
I need an antihistamine. Mom
thinks she's feeling her asthma,
and so...

HANNAH
(overlapping)
Ohh?

HOLLY
(overlapping, lighting
a cigarette)
Uh-oh.

LEE
(continuing)
...before she starts turning into
Camille...
(laughing)


HOLLY
(overlapping)
Yeah, Mom's Camille when she gets
up in the morning.

LEE
(turning to Holly)
At least she isn't drinking. Did
you notice?

HOLLY
(nodding)
Mm-hm.

HANNAH
(turning to look at
her sisters, laughing)
Doesn't she look great in that new
dress?

HOLLY
(nodding)
Yeah.

LEE
(nodding)
Yeah.

The sisters all talk at once; Hannah is still working at the
sink.

HANNAH
Don't you think she does?

HOLLY
She really does, though.

LEE
(turning towards the sink)
Yeah, she knows it, too, 'cause
she's flirting with all the men here.

HOLLY
(puffing on her cigarette)
God.

HANNAH
(scooping out some
cantaloupe seeds)
Maybe when she's eighty, she'll
stop straightening her garter belt
when there's a guy around.

HOLLY
(to Lee, laughing)
I should get a garter belt.

LEE
(laughing)
Yeah.

HOLLY
(looking down at herself)
Get a garter belt...
(sipping her drink)
Get a garter belt and flirt.

LEE
(laughing, to Hannah)
Where are the antihistamines?

HANNAH
Oh, I don-- Ask Elliot for that.
Uh, he's got them somewhere.

LEE
(nodding)
Okay.

Lee leaves the kitchen. Holly, puffing on her cigarette,
watches her go.

HOLLY
(sighing)
Frederick didn't come with her.

HANNAH
(turning to Holly,
still working at the sink)
When does Frederick ever come with
her?

HOLLY
(whispering intently)
Tch. He's such an angry...he's
such a depressive. I thought she
was moving out!

Hannah shakes her head in disapproval while Holly angrily
takes another sip of her drink.
